Another Four Pinocchios for Obama

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

Once again, the Washington Post Fact Checker has given our Dear Leader the highest rating, Four Pinocchios, for out right lying to the American People.

This time it is for spreading leftist propaganda about the Keystone pipeline.

As we have noted before, when the president says “it bypasses the United States,” he leaves out a very important step. The crude oil would travel to the Gulf Coast, where it would be refined into products such as motor gasoline and diesel fuel (known as a distillate fuel in the trade). Current trends suggest that only about half of that refined product would be exported, and it could easily be lower.

Finally, note that Obama said Keystone was just for Canadian oil, and “we should be focusing on American infrastructure for American jobs and American producers.” But actually, Keystone would help U.S. oil producers in North Dakota and Montana. TransCanada, the builder of the pipeline, has signed contracts to move 65,000 barrels a day from the Bakken area –and hopes to build that to 100,000. That’s nearly 10 percent of the region’s production.

So not only is Barry lying, he’s repeating lies.  As the Washington Post article, reports from the State Department show that he is lying.

Previous Four Pinocchio rating for our Dear Leader include lies about President George H.W. Bush’s amnesty program, and lies about his signature Obamacare fiasco.

Top Three Obamacare lies told by Obama

Sunday, May 25th, 2014

“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period.”

“If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”

“We will lower your premiums by $2,500 per family, per year.”

All three of those statements have been proven to be lies.

All three of those statements, at the time they were made, were identified as not being what the actual Obamacare law would allow, by people who actually read the bill.

Those people were called “racists” by people who didn’t read the bill.

I’m not expecting any apologies to the people wrongly attacked for having actually read the so called “Affordable Care Act.”

I am expecting the people who attacked them with slanderous lies to apologize for the man who lied to them and to continue their baseless, partisan attacks on any one who dares to speak the truth.

A twofer for Barry

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

Our Dear Leader has racked up two new awards.

First, the left leaning Politico picked his signature line, “If like your health insurance, you can keep it,” as the 2013 Lie of the Year.

Then, the Washington Post selected Barry’s same signature line as the “Biggest Pinocchio” of the Year.

It is quite telling that the President who promised the “most transparent administration ever”, has his signature line about his signature policy, selected by two separate news organizations as the biggest lie of 2013.  To be fair, the “most transparent administration ever” promise was a huge lie also.

Update: Obama’s Epic Fib About the NSA

UpdateInto Year 6, Obama admits he’s clueless

Update: Two sources point out that Politico rated their “Lie of the Year” as true before the 2012 election.

Quote of Day

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

Setting the way back machine to 2008 for this quote from the recently elected US Senator Barack Hussein Obama:

“No one should get a free pass to violate the basic civil liberties of the American people – not the President of the United States, and not the telecommunications companies that fell in line with his warrantless surveillance program.  We have to make clear the lines that cannot be crossed.”

Ya, he was lying when he said that.  That is pretty consistent with just about everything else he has said.

Not good enough to work in the Obama White House

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

The continuous flow of scandals, felonies, lies and cover ups coming from the Obama White House reminded me of this exchange from the TV show Archer.

Cyril Figgis: How do you keep track of all these lies?

Sterling Archer: Practice Cyril. Lying is like 95% of what I do.

Cyril Figgis: In your job.

Sterling Archer: Sure.

Sorry Archer, 95% just isn’t good enough to work in the Obama White administration.

Case in point, White House Spokes Weasel Jay Carney.  He has moved well beyond the typical spin control required in the job and right into Baghdad Bob territory.  Plenty of video evidence of that.

Let’s review:

The Entire Obama White House staff, and numerous members of the Obama executive branch, lied repeatedly, in fact often, on National TV, about the murder of four Americans, including an Ambassador in Benghazi.  That is documented.  Proven over and over again.  Which is why most leftists will claim it’s ‘not a big deal’, since they can’t deny it or blame President G.W. Bush.

The Obama regime lied repeatedly over the IRS multiple violations of the First Amendment rights of Conservative groups.  The Obama cultists’ explanation of this is particularly hypocritical, since they are claiming the Tea Party groups were asking for it by wearing a short skirt, or reading the Constitution. The Cato Daily Podcast, which you should be listening to, interviewed one of the top people at the D.C. branch of the ACLU. This fellow felt this was a big fornicating deal.  It was deliberate targeting of a group practice of free political speech.  A clear felony level violation of the First Amendment. The ACLU is taking the classic Liberal position here, which is the territory of Libertarians these days.  The self identified “progressives” are being true to form, since they never were fans of free speech or the market place of free ideas.

The Obama regime lied, and continues to lie, about their Fast and Furious program in where it supplied semi-automatic weapons to Mexican drug cartels.  A program that resulted in the murders of over 300 Mexican nationals and at least one US Federal Agent.  If this was as above board as they claim, why is our Dear Leader‘s top officials stonewalling any attempts to find out the facts?

Bottom line, our Dear Leader promised the “most transparent administration ever”, and instead he has gone into an information blackout and raised the administration’s paranoia well past the levels of the Nixon administration.  Don’t forget his previous War on Inspector Generals.

It is also interesting to watch all the far left extremists Obama cultists back pedal to defend the actions of their Lightbringer that they would have screamed bloody murder and flooded the streets protesting if anybody with a R after their name had done it.

Sweet, sweet Schadenfreude….

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Michael Graham writes the following about our Dear Leader’s Press Secretary:

It was one of the tastiest servings of schadenfreude I’ve sampled in a long time.  Watching Carney lie is boring. Watching him lie while he knows everyone watching knows he’s lying is a delight.

What we’ve known from the beginning–and the folks at ABC News are just starting to figure outis that the White House knew within 24 hours--48 max–that the Benghazi consulate was destroyed by a pre-planned, organized attack on the anniversary of 9/11 by Al Qaeda. Which means every time Hillary Clinton said “video” at Chris Stevens funeral or President Obama said it at the UN or Susan Rice said it on TV–they were lying.

They were lying because the CIA, the State Department and the Libyan government has all told them the truth within a day of the attack.

Bottom line, Carney is moving into Baghdad Bob territory every time he opens his mouth about Benghazi.

Of course, the Obama cultists “don’t care” about the President and his staff lying repeatedly to the American people, as long as it is their “lightbringer” doing the lying.

Obamacare is a tax act

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

Obama’s Chief of Staff tries to weasel, but Chris Wallace commits actual journalism and provides actual facts, to which our Dear Leader‘s CoS continually denies and repeats the same lies.

The Obama regime SG argued to the Supreme Court that Obamacare is a tax, the Supreme Court ruled that the only way it passed Constitutional muster was under the government’s ability to tax.  They were very clear that it was not Constitutional under the Commerce Clause or under the “promote the general welfare” clause.  The Obamacare act does not fund a single additional doctor, but it does fund 16,000 new  IRS agents in order to collect revenue  that will be generated by the Obamacare (more accurately “Obamatax” act).  That alone should tell you what the basic nature of the act is, it’s a tax!

It’s A Tax Hike Stupid! Supreme Court Rules that ObamaCare Really a Tax Increase, Not a Mandate

AP fact checks Obama’s speech and finds it comes up short on actual facts

Friday, September 9th, 2011

Here is the fact checking article in full.  I’ll just list some of the highlights

Essentially, the jobs plan is an IOU from a president and lawmakers who may not even be in office down the road when the bills come due. Today’s Congress cannot bind a later one for future spending. A future Congress could simply reverse it.

THE FACTS: It’s hard to see how the program would not raise the deficit over the next year or two because most of the envisioned spending cuts and tax increases are designed to come later rather than now, when they could jeopardize the fragile recovery.

THE FACTS: Not all of the president’s major proposals are likely to yield quick job growth if adopted. One is to set up a national infrastructure bank to raise private capital for roads, rail, bridges, airports and waterways. Even supporters of such a bank doubt it could have much impact on jobs in the next two years because it takes time to set up.

Bottom line, our Dear Leader asked for more of his failed policies.  More and more of the American people, especially registered voters, are seeing the truth behind his rhetoric.

What did Maddow know and when did she know it.

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Hardly surprising was that MSNBC “commentator” and far left extremist, Rachal Maddow was stanch and aggressive supporter of Rep. Weiner as he lied to the press, his constituents, his staff, his wife and the rest of the world every time he opened his mouth.

Maddow put forth every moonbat conspiracy theory on exactly Weiner was hacked by an evil “vast right wing conspiracy”  posted on the DailyKos, every single one of them were empirically proven wrong BTW, as the “Gospel Truth”tm.

Not that Maddow let the actual truth slow her down.  She is now trying to down play the whole thing with her sex scandal chart

The real question, however, is “What did Maddow know and when did she know it?

One of Weiner Cyber-Mistresses had contacted the Maddow show back on June 3, 2011. The Maddow show wanted nothing to do with this information.  Perhaps if the Cyber-Mistress had said the dirt was on a Republican, the Maddow team would have been all over it.  Or was it the last thing they wanted to, ahem, touch was news about a political sex scandal right when the democrat party‘s attack congressman’s online habits were just hitting the news?

democrat spokesperson Wasserman-Schultz throws the truth to the wolves

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Ya, ya…a DNC rep not including the actual truth in a public statement is a ‘dog bites man’ story, but democrat Rep. Wasserman-Schultz takes her job above and beyond the realm of normal DNC spin.

In her statement to CBS’ Harry Smith, which he didn’t call her on, “We’re going to throw you to the wolves, and allow insurance companies to deny you coverage and drop you for pre-existing conditions,” Wasserman-Schultz manages to wrap a lie up with fear mongering.

A lie, you say? Yup, Wasserman-Schultz is a lying liar according to both and the Washington Post.  The Washington Post article went as far as to give Wasserman-Schultz “three Pinocchios” and labeled her statement “bogus.”
