The corruption of Barack Obama
American Thinker ^ | 02/16/2020 | J.B. Shurk

The national media are flabbergasted that Americans won't consent to President Trump's removal from office. How can so many of his compatriots be indicted and so many government bureaucrats condemn his behavior without giving them what they desire: self-assurance that they are "on the right side of history"?

If they ever wish to understand, the critical starting point in their education is not the current presidency, but the last one. Although there are numerous ways to describe the present divide in America, one of the simpler is thus: those Americans who take Barack Obama at his word that his presidency was historically "scandal free" and those Americans who see the unrelenting stream of Deep State attempts to take down President Trump as a continuing coup and the natural extension of an unethical, criminal, and at times unconstitutional Obama presidency.

For those of us in the latter camp, Barack Obama presided over a corrupt administration and used his historic election as the first non-white American president as a get-out-of-jail-free card to abuse his power while silencing his critics.

Whataboutery is frowned upon now that President Trump is in office, but if President Trump had done a tiny percentage of what Obama orchestrated, he actually would be in federal prison. Imagine what would have happened if President Trump had done the following:

* used a recession to bilk a trillion dollars from the public to stuff the pockets of campaign donors like Solyndra.

* facilitated Agent Brian Terry's murder by arming the Mexican cartels

* targeted American citizens for assassination without a whiff of due process

* lied to voters that their doctors would be protected and premiums reduced, while illegally funding Obamacare and covering illegal aliens' health care stolen from victims of Iranian terrorism by plundering escrow accounts

KEYWORDS: corruption; obama

* handing over $1.7 billion in untraceable European currency and planeloads of American cash, releasing twenty-one Iranian convicts, and shutting down a decade-long DEA operation against Hezb'allah's double-whammy assault of smuggling cocaine into the U.S. and financing terrorism against us, all for the glory of an "Iran deal"

* spied on reporters while putting a record number of their sources in jail

* used the IRS as his personal gang of thugs to target conservatives before the 2012 election

* allowed a 9-11 anniversary terrorist attack to unfold without sending reinforcements while falsely blaming the four resulting American deaths on a YouTube video and American free speech

* sent an untold number of American veterans to early deaths through widespread negligence and corruption at the V.A.

* protected his attorney general who lied to lawmakers on the president's behalf so persistently that Democrats joined Republicans to make him the first A.G. to be held in contempt of Congress

* protected his CIA director, who spied on lawmakers and lied about it

* protected his director of National Intelligence, who illegally spied on all Americans and lied about it protected his heir apparent, who used an illegal and compromised email server and lied about it

* promoted his U.N. ambassador to national security adviser for unashamedly circuiting Sunday-morning talk shows and peddling demonstrable lies to the American public

* and all of this while betraying his oath of office by vigorously attacking Americans' constitutionally protected free speech, religion, and right to bear arms; squeezing colleges and private companies to submit to his socialist vision; and punishing his ideological foes by using a corrupt Justice Department and FBI to hunt his enemies

"That son of a *itch Obama won't endorse me, even after I sucked-up and mentioned Michelle as my VP."
"Hell, Hunter and I gave him a cut of every frickin' deal. So did my brothers. The greedy Obamas never get enough."

Where were you when Obama took control of the US Treasury?

"Mr President, you are now in complete control of the US Treasury."


THE SMOKING GUN---WSJ REPORT--On Jan 20, 2009 Timothy Geithner was appointed Obama's Secy of the Treasury. But within three weeks, the Obama White House tightened its grip on Treasury. Obama put his COS, Rahm Emanuel, in charge of Treasury---Rahm Emanuel's dual role was an unusual move. When he got to Treasury, WH COS Rahm Emanuel was so involved in the inner workings that the phrase "Rahm wants it" had become an unofficial mantra among subservient govt staffers, prostrate in obeisance, scurrying to accede to Rahm's wishes, according to Treasury government officials. Reported by WSJ / 05/31/09
