“Criminal in Chief” — 78 Times President Obama Broke the Law During Presidency

75-ways-obama-broke-the-law

Here’s a list of at least 75 times President Obama violated the Constitution and/or broke federal law during his presidency, which also doubles as a list of at least 75 reasons why Congress must impeach the president now:

1) Illegally armed Mexican drug cartels and ISIS militants

In Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama administration facilitated the sale of thousands of guns to Mexican drug cartels and stopped tracking those weapons once they crossed the border so the administration could later blame the Second Amendment.

“The Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives apparently ordered one of its own agents to purchase firearms with taxpayer money, and sell them directly to a Mexican drug cartel,” the New York Postreported. “Let that sink in: After months of pretending that ‘Fast and Furious’ was a botched surveillance operation of illegal gun-running spearheaded by the ATF and the US attorney’s office in Phoenix, it turns out that the government itself was selling guns to the bad guys.”

Even more shocking, President Obama authorized a shipment of guns to the Syrian opposition, a.k.a. ISIS-linked militants, on the exact same day he demanded more gun control in response to the Oregon shooting.

“…The President also emphasized to his team that the U.S. would continue to support the Syrian opposition as Russia enters the war-torn country,” CNN reported in October.

But virtually all of the rebels in Syria have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State since at least 2013.

“The Free Syrian Army and the Syrian National Council, the vaunted bulwarks of the moderate opposition, only really exist in hotel lobbies and the minds of Western diplomats,” journalist Ben Reynolds wrote in November. “There is simply no real separation between ‘moderate’ rebel groups and hardline Salafists allied with al-Qaeda.”

2) Attempting to shut down gun stores outside of law

In a classic case of criminal racketeering, the U.S. Department of Justice was pressuring banks to refuse service to gun stores in a program entitled Operation Choke Point.

Under the program started in 2014 if not before, the DOJ was attempting to shut down legal gun dealers by coercing financial institutions to close the bank and merchant accounts associated with their businesses.

In 2012, Bank of America told a gun company, McMillan Group International, that because the company was expanding into firearms manufacturing, the bank no longer wanted McMillan’s business.

“We have to assess the risk of doing business with a firearms-related industry,” the bank’s representative told operations director Kelly McMillan.

And not long after, BitPay, a U.S.-based bitcoin processor, likewise refused to do business with gun dealer Michael Cargill of Central Texas Gunworks due to a similar policy.

3) Spent tax dollars to re-settle illegals inside U.S.

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol has been purchasing bus tickets and vouchers for illegal immigrants in order to ship them deeper into the country at taxpayers’ expense, according to a McAllen, Texas city official.

“They’re not bringing them here, they’re bringing them to our bus terminals because that’s where the Border Patrol understands that they have transportation to go to the interior,” McAllen, Texas City Attorney Kevin Pagan said in an interview with Infowars. “So they’re dropping them off and it’s our understanding that they were dropped off with tickets or with vouchers for tickets, but it turns out that some of them tonight didn’t have their tickets or their vouchers for tickets, or like I said their buses are tomorrow, so they have no where to stay.”

Several months earlier, Obama ordered the Border Patrol to stand down from protecting the border and enforcing immigration laws.

“We are simply being ordered to stand down and stop tracking and trying to apprehend the criminals,” Shawn Moran, Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council, told Breitbart.

4) Using executive action to restrict Second Amendment

Obama decided to use his “pen and his phone” to enact gun control without Congressional approval.

“Without a Democratic majority in Congress, and faced with a GOP that is firmly against any form of gun control measures, Obama has repeatedly warned that he would act on his own,” Zero Hedge reported.

For one thing, Obama is attempting to require private sellers to conduct background checks.

“The action, officials explained, would include guidance on how the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives will now determine who is “engaged in the business” of selling firearms under federal law and, therefore, who is required to obtain a license to sell firearms,” the Washington Free Beacon reported.

Obama may also try and prevent people on the no-fly list from being able to purchase guns, which violates the Fifth Amendment’s guarantee of due process by allowing the government to deprive people of their rights based only on suspicion.

Additionally, numerous law-abiding Americans have been wrongly placed on the No-Fly list due to false information, clerical errors or political persecution.

“The U.S. government maintains a massive watchlist system that risks stigmatizing hundreds of thousands of people – including U.S. citizens – as terrorism suspects based on vague, overbroad, and often secret standards and evidence,” the ACLU reported. “The consequences of being placed on a government watchlist can be far-reaching; they can include questioning, harassment, or detention by authorities, or even an indefinite ban on air travel.”

5) Illegally targeted conservative groups via IRS

Obama’s IRS had illegally targeted conservative groups for additional “reviews” of their tax status applications.

Organizations with the phrases “tea party” or “patriot” in their names were singled out for harassment, such as requiring them to provide information about their family members, their social media posts and a list of donors.

Obama had met with a key IRS official who was involved in the targeting just two days before the key official told his colleagues how to target conservative groups. The Daily Caller reported:

The Obama appointee implicated in congressional testimony in the IRS targeting scandal met with President Obama in the White House two days before offering his colleagues a new set of advice on how to scrutinize tea party and conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status.

IRS chief counsel William Wilkins, who was named in House Oversight testimony by retiring IRS agent Carter Hull as one of his supervisors in the improper targeting of conservative groups, met with Obama in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on April 23, 2012. Wilkins’ boss, then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman, visited the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on April 24, 2012, according to White House visitor logs.

On April 25, 2012, Wilkins’ office sent the exempt organizations determinations unit “additional comments on the draft guidance” for approving or denying tea party tax-exempt applications, according to the IRS inspector general’s report.

During Obama’s first four years as President, IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman made 157 visits to the White House.

“This is more visits to the White House – by a very large margin – than any other cabinet member during Obama’s first term,” journalist Tim Brown revealed. “By comparison, during the four years that Mark Everson was IRS commissioner when Bush was president, Everson made only one visit to the White House.”

6) Secretly obtained phone records from Associated Press journalists

In May 2013, Associated Press reported:

The Justice Department secretly obtained two months of telephone records of reporters and editors for The Associated Press in what the news cooperative’s top executive called a “massive and unprecedented intrusion” into how news organizations gather the news.

The records obtained by the Justice Department listed outgoing calls for the work and personal phone numbers of individual reporters, general AP office numbers in New York, Washington and Hartford, Conn., and the main number for AP reporters in the House of Representatives press gallery, according to attorneys for the AP. It was not clear if the records also included incoming calls or the duration of calls.

In all, the government seized the records for more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to AP and its journalists in April and May of 2012. The exact number of journalists who used the phone lines during that period is unknown but more than 100 journalists work in the offices where phone records were targeted, on a wide array of stories about government and other matters.

Obtaining these phone records required approval from former Attorney General Eric Holder.

7) Carried out military interventionism in Libya without Congressional approval

Obama violated the Constitution when he launched military operations inLibya without Congressional approval.

8) Expanded Bush’s unconstitutional government faith-based programs

Obama actually expanded the federal government’s faith based programs which had been started by President George W. Bush.

9) Supported Bush’s unconstitutional Patriot Act

Obama renewed the Patriot Act in 2011.

10) Agrees with Bush’s support of unconstitutional, indefinite detention of U.S. citizens without filing any charges

Obama signed an unconstitutional bill that gave the U.S. government the power to indefinitely detain U.S. citizens without any charges being filed or any trial taking place.

11) Supports unconstitutional, warrantless wiretapping

President Obama is a huge supporter of warrantless wiretapping.

12) Had four U.S. citizens killed without judicial process

Obama had four U.S. citizens killed without judicial process, to which then-U.S. Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) said was an impeachable offense.

13) Ordered private company to fire 1,000 employees

After Boeing hired 1,000 new employees to work at its new factory in South Carolina in 2011, the Obama administration ordered the company to close it down because the factory was non-union.

14) Stole money from retired teachers and police officers

During the Chrysler bankruptcy, Obama violated the Fifth Amendment and more than 150 years of bankruptcy law by illegally treating secured creditors worse than unsecured creditors.

“Upsetting this fixed hierarchy among creditors is just an illegal taking of property from one group of creditors for the benefit of another, which should be struck down on both statutory and constitutional grounds,” according to Richard A. Epstein, a law professor at New York University School of Law.

15) Fired Inspector General for discovering that Obama’s friend had embezzled government funds

Obama fired Inspector General Gerald Walpin in 2009 after Walpin accused Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson, an Obama supporter, of misusing AmeriCorps funding to pay for political activities.

Later on, a bipartisan group of 145 current and former public officials and legal scholars signed a letter stating Walpin’s firing was politically motivated.

16) Lied about letting people keep their health insurance

Before Obamacare was passed, Obama said:

“No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people… 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.”

But once it was passed, the Congressional Budget Office said Obamacare would cause at least seven million people to lose their insurance.

17) Lied about the cost of Obamacare

Before Obamacare was passed, Obama promised:

“I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits – either now or in the future. I will not sign it if it adds one dime to the deficit, now or in the future, period. And to prove that I’m serious, there will be a provision in this plan that requires us to come forward with more spending cuts if the savings we promised don’t materialize.”

However, not long after Obama signed it, the Washington Post reported it would add over $340 billion to the budget deficit over the next decade.

18) Gave tax dollars to campaign contributors and lobbyists, and falsely claimed the money was for “green energy”

In 2009 the Obama administration gave $535 million to green-energy company Solyndra, claiming that it would create 4,000 new jobs, but the company soon went bankrupt.

It was later revealed the company’s executives had made substantialdonations to Obama’s campaign and that Solyndra executives had had many meetings with White House officials.

19) Had “off the record” meetings with lobbyists

In June 2010, the New York Times said the Obama administration officials had held hundreds of meetings with lobbyists at coffee houses near the White House to avoid the disclosure requirements for White House visitors.

20) Had armed SWAT agents raid a law-abiding guitar factory because it was owned by a Republican

President Obama had an armed SWAT team raid the Gibson guitar factory and seized guitars and other property from the factory – without any charges being filed.

Obama’s so-called justification for the raid was that Gibson had broken environmental laws from India regarding the imported wood that Gibson had been using, but C.F. Martin & Company, Gibsons’s competitor, had used the exact same imported wood.

The difference? Henry E. Juszkiewicz, the CEO of Gibson, was a Republicandonor, whereas Chris Martin IV, the CEO of Martin, was a Democraticdonor.

21) Ignored constitutional requirements for appointees

Late U.S. Senator Robert Byrd, a Democrat, expressed concerns that Obama’s dozens of czars appointed in 2009 might violate the U.S. Constitution because they were not approved by the U.S. Senate.

Another Democrat, U.S. Senator Russ Feingold, shared a similar sentiment.

22) Tried to outlaw family farms

The Obama administration wanted to eradicate family farms in 2012 by trying to prohibit farm children under 18 from working in various farm-related activities.

23) Auctioned off ambassadorship to the Netherlands

Obama nominated Timothy Broas to be U.S. ambassador to the Netherlands after Broas donated at least $500,000 to Obama’s 2012 campaign.

24) Made the TSA even more abusive and ridiculous than it had been under Bush

Under the Obama administration, the TSA has been giving very invasive pat-downs on young children which would otherwise constitute child molestation.

25) Illegally demanded monetary payment for Freedom of Information Act request

The Obama administration demanded the Goldwater Institute pay nearly $79,000 before it would share public records via the Freedom of Information Act.

26) Stole money from retired Delphi employees

Obama eliminated the pensions of 20,000 retired Delphi employees in 2009.

27) Used “off the books” funding for military interventionism

Anti-war activists who helped elect Obama accused him of using the same “off-the-books” funding as his predecessor George W. Bush when the president requested over $83 billion from Congress for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

28) Tried to silence criticism of auto-bailouts

The Obama administration pressured the Ford Motor Company to stop criticizing Obama’s bailouts of General Motors and Chrysler in a TV ad.

29) Tried to silence video on YouTube

Obama actually asked a Jewish singing group to take down its video from the Internet in 2011.

30) Illegally gave Obamacare exemptions to unions that supported the passage of Obamacare

Obama gave some of his favorite organizations an exemption from some Obamacare requirements.

Many of these organizations were unions that had supported the passage of Obamacare, but then afterwards wanted exemptions from the very same law they forced on everyone else.

The Constitution, however, requires the law to treat everyone as equals.

The Washington Times said of this:

“Selective enforcement of the law is the first sign of tyranny. A government empowered to determine arbitrarily who may operate outside the rule of law invariably embraces favoritism as friends, allies and those with the best-funded lobbyists are rewarded. Favoritism inevitably leads to corruption, and corruption invites extortion. Ultimately, the rule of law ceases to exist in any recognizable form, and what is left is tyranny.”

“The now-familiar monthly trickling down of new waivers is, at best, a tacit admission that Obamacare is a failure. So far, seven entire states and 1,372 businesses, unions and other institutions have received waivers from the law. The list includes the administration’s friends and allies and, of course, those who have the best lobbyists.”

“More than 50 percent of the Obamacare waiver beneficiaries are union members, which is striking because union members account for less than 12 percent of the American work force. The same unions that provided more than $120 million to Democrats in the last two elections and, in many cases, openly campaigned in favor of the government takeover of your health care, now celebrate that Obamacare is not their problem.”

31) Defended Bush administration’s unconstitutional, unwarranted use of GPS device

The Obama administration opposed the U.S. Supreme Court for ruling against the Bush administration over the installation of a GPS tracking device on someone’s car without a warrant.

32) Was cited by nine states for committing 21 illegal acts

Attorneys General from nine states listed 21 illegal acts which had been committed by the Obama administration.

33) Tried to seize hotel because some of its customers had used illegal drugs

The Obama administration tried to shut down a mom-and-pop bed-and-breakfast because some if its guests had used illegal drugs.

34) Made recess appointments when Congress was not in recess

Obama violated the Constitution by making four recess appointments when Congress was not in recess in Jan. 2012.

A federal appeals court later ruled that Obama’s appointments had violated the Constitution.

35) Supports guns for himself and his wife, but opposes them for everyone else

President Obama signed a 2013 bill providing armed guards for himself and his wife for the rest of the lives.

But when Obama was an Illinois state senator in 2004, he voted againstcitizens keeping guns in their own homes to protect themselves and their families.

36) Approved giving 20 F-16 fighter jets to a Sharia dictatorship

Obama once gave 20 F-16 fighter jets to Egypt while it was under a Sharia dictatorship.

37) Violated the very same campaign finance laws that he claims to support

Obama’s 2012 campaign was fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for violating campaign finance laws.

38) Encouraged employers to switch their employees from full time to part time

The New York Times said Obamacare “sharply penalizes full-time employment in favor of part-time employment.”

In response to the employer mandate of Obamacare, many businesses and even colleges switched some of their employees from full time to part time.

Leaders of the Teamsters, UFCW, and UNITE-HERE penned a 2013 letter to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi stating that Obamacare will “destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class… the law creates an incentive for employers to keep employees’ work hours below 30 hours a week. Numerous employers have begun to cut workers’ hours to avoid this obligation.”

39) Had Freedom of Information Act record worse than Bush’s

when it came to honoring requests under the Freedom of Information Act, Obama’s record was far worse than that of George W. Bush.

40) Supports installation of hidden cameras on private property without a search warrant

Obama’s Justice Department once argued in favor of installing hidden cameras on private property without a search warrant.

41) Accepted illegal campaign contributions from foreign citizens

During an experiment, a non-U.S. citizen attempted to make two $5 donations to both Obama’s campaign and Mitt Romney’s campaign.

While the Romney campaign rejected both donations, the Obama website accepted them cheerfully.

42) Lied about the Benghazi attack

After four U.S. citizens were killed in a terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, in Sept. 2012, the Obama administration falsely claimed the attack was a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim video at YouTube.

Even more, the Obama administration took an entire week before it acknowledged the attacks as terrorism.

And although the Obama administration made a dozen revisions to its versions of the incident, then-White House Press Secretary Jay Carneyfalsely claimed that only a “single adjustment” had been made.

ABC News later published a complete list of all the changes to the White House talking points.

43) Complained to YouTube about an anti-Muslim video

The Obama administration actually phoned YouTube in 2012 to complain about an anti-Muslim video.

“It does make us nervous when the government throws its weight behind any requests for censorship,” Ben Wizner of the ACLU said.

44) Falsely said that Fast and Furious was started when Bush was President

Obama lied when he said Fast and Furious had “begun under the previous administration” in 2012.

Fast and Furious actually began around September 2009, months after Bush left office.

45) Illegally refused to fire Kathleen Sebelius after she violated campaign finance laws

Kathleen Sebelius, Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services, was caught violating campaign finance laws in 2012, but despite federal lawrequiring Obama to fire her over the illegal activity, he refused to do so.

46) Gave special access to people who raised or donated $500,000

People who raised or donated at least $500,000 to Organizing for Action, a pro-Obama political group, would be given “the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White House.”

47) Adopted harmful new restrictions on prescription painkillers – even though the House had already voted against them

The Obama administration ignored the House’s rejection of new restrictions on prescription painkillers by adopting them anyway.

48) Illegally refused to submit a budget on time during four of his first five years

Despite being legally required to submit a budget by the first Monday in February, Obama broke this law at least four times.

In contrast, since 1921, no President had missed this deadline more than once.

49) Fined UPS $40 million because some of its customers had used UPS to ship illegal drugs

Obama forced UPS to pay $40 million in 2013 because some of its customers had used the company to ship illegal drugs.

50) Added 20,000 extra pages to Obamacare without Congressional approval

After Obamacare was passed, Obama added 20,000 extra pages to it even though those extra pages were not voted on by Congress.

51) Waited until after the 2012 election to release unpopular Obamacare rules

The New York Times reported in 2013:

… even fervent supporters of the law admit that things are going worse than expected.

… the Obama administration didn’t want to release unpopular rules before the election.

Everything is turning out to be more complicated than originally envisioned.

A law that was very confusing has become mind-boggling… Americans are just going to be overwhelmed and befuddled. Many are just going to stay away, even if they are eligible for benefits.

52) Tried to rig federal auctions of radio spectrum space

The Obama administration was trying to rig federal auctions of radio spectrum space in a manner that would favor Sprint and T-Mobile over its competitors.

53) Put someone in jail for making an anti-Muslim video

Politico reported in 2013:

“Nakoula Basseley Nakoula deserves a place in American history. He is the first person in this country jailed for violating Islamic anti-blasphemy laws.”

“You won’t find that anywhere in the charges against him, of course. As a practical matter, though, everyone knows that Nakoula wouldn’t be in jail today if he hadn’t produced a video crudely lampooning the prophet Muhammad.”

“In the weeks after the attack on U.S. facilities in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others, the Obama administration claimed the terrorist assault had been the outgrowth of a demonstration against the Nakoula video. The administration ran public service announcements in Pakistan featuring President Barack Obama saying the U.S. had nothing to do with it. In a speech at the United Nations around this time, the president declared – no doubt with Nakoula in mind – ‘The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.’”

54) Rewarded one of his biggest campaign fundraisers by nominating him for the ambassadorship to Canada

Obama nominated Bruce Heyman to be the ambassador to Canada in 2013after Heyman raised more than $1 million for Obama.

55) Asked contractors to disclose their political donations before bidding on government contracts

Obama asked contractors to disclose their political donations before bidding on federal contracts in 2011.

56) Falsely accused a law abiding news reporter of being “an aider and abettor and/or co-conspirator” in a criminal investigation

The Obama administration falsely labeled Fox contributor James Rosen as “an aider and abettor and/or co-conspirator” in a criminal investigation when it applied for a warrant to read his emails.

The New York Times reported:

With the decision to label a Fox News television reporter a possible “co-conspirator” in a criminal investigation of a news leak, the Obama administration has moved beyond protecting government secrets to threatening fundamental freedoms of the press to gather news.

Leak investigations usually focus on the source, not the reporter. But, in this case, federal prosecutors also asked a federal judge for permission to examine Mr. Rosen’s personal e-mails, arguing that “there is probable cause to believe” Mr. Rosen is “an aider and abettor and/or co-conspirator” in the leak.

Though Mr. Rosen was not charged, the F.B.I. request for his e-mail account was granted secretly in late May 2010. The government was allowed to rummage through Mr. Rosen’s e-mails for at least 30 days.

The Washington Post also said:

The Rosen affair is as flagrant an assault on civil liberties as anything done by George W. Bush’s administration, and it uses technology to silence critics in a way Richard Nixon could only have dreamed of.

To treat a reporter as a criminal for doing his job – seeking out information the government doesn’t want made public – deprives Americans of the First Amendment freedom on which all other constitutional rights are based. Guns? Privacy? Due process? Equal protection? If you can’t speak out, you can’t defend those rights, either.

Beyond that, the administration’s actions shatter the president’s credibility and discourage allies who would otherwise defend the administration against bogus accusations such as those involving the Benghazi “talking points.” If the administration is spying on reporters and accusing them of criminality just for asking questions – well, who knows what else this crowd is capable of doing?

57) Asked Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate himself for lying under oath

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder lied under oath when he said he had nothing to do with monitoring the emails of Fox reporter James Rosen, even though his own signature on the search warrant.

In response, Obama asked Holder to investigate himself!

58) Used Obamacare to illegally give the IRS additional powers without approval from Congress

The Washington Post reported in 2013:

[Obamacare] allows the Department of Health and Human Services to set up federal health exchanges in the holdout states. But the statute makes no mention of the IRS providing credits and subsidies through federal exchanges.

The IRS resolved this conundrum by denying its existence. In a May 2012 regulatory ruling, it asserted its own right to provide credits outside the state exchanges as the reasonable interpretation of an ambiguous law. But the language of the law is not ambiguous. And health scholars Jonathan Adler and Michael Cannon, in an exhaustive recent analysis, find no justification for the IRS’s ruling in the legislative history of Obamacare….

So: The IRS seized the authority to spend about $800 billion over 10 years on benefits that were not authorized by Congress.

59) Illegally solicited donations from health insurers

In May 2013, Obama’s Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius illegally solicited donations from health insurers to help pay for Obamacare.

60) Proposed military interventionism in Syria

Obama proposed the U.S. oust the Syrian government in 2013 by military action.

61) Refused to fire or prosecute more than 1,000 IRS employees who illegally used their IRS credit cards for their own personal use

Obama refused to fire or prosecute more than 1,000 IRS employees illegally used their IRS credit cards for personal purchases.

62) Had the Secret Service visit a law abiding citizen who had criticized his policies on Twitter

Obama ordered the Secret Service to visit the home of Tom Francois, a law abiding citizen who had criticized Obama’s policies on Twitter in 2013.

The Secret Service later admitted that Francois had not made any threats against the president.

63) Had the IRS grant special, illegal favors for his brother’s so-called “charity”

The Daily Caller reported the IRS had taken the “unprecedented” step of approving a non-profit application within just one month from the Barack H. Obama Foundation, a so-called “charity” which was headed by Malik Obama, Barack Obama’s brother.

Additionally, the IRS illegally gave retroactive approval for the organization’s tax exempt status and had illegally solicited tax deductible donations even though it did not have legal approval to do so.

64) Illegally bypassed Congress to delay Obamacare’s employer mandate

In July 2013, Obama delayed the employer mandate part of Obamacare until January 2015, even though Congress set it to begin a year prior.

Obama effectively rewrote a law without approval from Congress, which is highly illegal.

65) Illegally forced 2,200 privately owned auto dealerships to close, which destroyed 120,000 jobs

Obama cost 120,000 people their jobs by illegally forced 2,200 privately owned auto dealerships to close in 2009.

66) Gave 23,994 tax refunds worth a total of $46,378,040 to illegal aliens who all used the same address

The IRS gave nearly 24,000 tax refunds worth a total of nearly $47 million to illegal aliens in 2011 using the same address in Atlanta, Ga.

67) Used tax money to pay federal employees to organize protests against George Zimmerman

Obama actually used tax money to pay federal employees to organizeprotests against George Zimmerman in 2012.

68) Illegally continued giving foreign aid to Egypt after it had a coup

The Obama administration said it would illegally continue giving foreign aid to Egypt after its coup.

69) Broke promise to end Bush’s surveillance of U.S. citizens who were not suspected of committing a crime

Obama lied when he said he would end Bush’s illegal surveillance of U.S. citizens not suspected of committing a crime.

70) Falsely guaranteed that people could keep their doctor

Before Obamacare was passed, Obama said:

“Here is a guarantee that I’ve made… If you’ve got a doctor that you like, you will be able to keep your doctor.”

This was a complete lie.

71) Illegally seized a privately owned gun from a law abiding citizen

After a jury found George Zimmerman not guilty, the Obama administrationannounced it would seize his gun anyway, a violation of both the double jeopardy clause of the U.S. Constitution and the Fifth Amendment.

72) Illegally prevented individual employees of small businesses from choosing their own plan during the first year of Obamacare

Obamacare requires that individual employees of small businesses be allowed to choose their own insurance plan during the first year of Obamacare, but the Obama administration kept them from doing so.

73) Illegally avoided enforcing the required income verification of people who receive subsidies for Obamacare exchanges

The Obama administration refuses to verify the income of people whoreceive subsidies for Obamacare exchanges.

74) Illegally delayed the caps on out of pocket health care payments without Congressional approval

Obama once again illegally rewrote Obamacare by delaying payment caps for one year.

75) Falsely said the NSA review was being conducted by an “independent” body</strong

Obama assigned National Intelligence Director James Clapper, who had falsely testified to Congress that the NSA was not collecting information on U.S. citizens, to establish an “independent” investigation of NSA surveillance.

The list doesn’t need to end at 75:

76) Nominated a telecommunications lobbyist and Obama fundraiser to head the FCC

Obama nominated former cable TV lobbyist and Obama fundraiser Tom Wheeler to head the FCC in 2013. Wheeler had previously been the head of the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, which is a lobbying organization for the cable TV industry.

77) Tried to violate defendants’ right to a fair trial

In August 2013, Reuters reported:

A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.

Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations truly begin – not only from defense lawyers but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges.

The undated documents show that federal agents are trained to “recreate” the investigative trail to effectively cover up where the information originated, a practice that some experts say violates a defendant’s Constitutional right to a fair trial. If defendants don’t know how an investigation began, they cannot know to ask to review potential sources of exculpatory evidence – information that could reveal entrapment, mistakes or biased witnesses.

78) Threatened internet service providers with contempt of court if they did not install surveillance software

The Obama administration had pressured internet service providers to install surveillance software in 2013 so that it could monitor internet traffic without a warrant, a clear violation of the Fourth Amendment.

The ISPs who refused were later threatened by the administration with contempt of court.

This list was compiled with help from Freedom Outpost’s Tim Brown.

    • Perhaps some. All news organizations do. They don’t verify every bit of information they report, in a rush to present it.

    • Actually more than half of all information reported by Fox News is false. Thats more than “some”. js

  • Try comparing it to Bush or Reagan.

    • Oh, well that makes it all better then!

    • Lmao, someone else did the same thing decades ago… therefore he is innocent!

    • Never said he was innocent. just no where near as bad

  • Wow.. An eye open or ! I knew of some of these … But this is worse than Bush , LBJ, Nixon

    • This is worse than faking a terrorist attack???

    • I’m sure you didn’t wake up this morning hoping for a heavy dose of eye opening, but there’s no commercial jetliner in this photo. This is the record department of the pentagon (no one was hurt) and explosive experts all agree that it was a short range missile

    • Where is the plane? The wings? The bodies? Allllll tje camera footage from 2sq miles…..CRIMINAL!

  • If u think any political puppet is good for America..your the prop

  • fine, bring up charges…. sound of crickets…..

  • Brain washed drones will not approve.

  • Now i really think you start to be like Fox news,what’s is going on?One day you say he’s good and the next he’s a war criminal,i don’t know but made up your mind.

  • Compare that to G.W. PLEASE. LMFAO.

  • Makes sense why theyll call you Fox News. Where is the list of all people in Office and their crimes? The laws they pass behind us? Obama is just the tip of the iceberg meant to distract and divide us.

    • Wow you still don’t get it you’re still defending him… They always speak out against the establishment on all sides. Fox News? Yea they’re Fox News if you’re a statist boot licker

    • Thats not protecting him , im saying stop focusing on one dumbass , and focus on his whole team. Also trust, there are better sources than free thought project. Calling me bootlicker is like calling you conservative.

    • They consistently speak out against government as a whole. The problem is so many people pledge allegiance to the president and blame Congress and failed to realize that Obama is not without sin (not in a religious context) maybe you should look at the next two means they posted in the comments. I was basically saying if you consider than FOXNews and I consider you a statist bootlicker

    • I never said im siding with him either is all I’m saying, and this page has to much of two sided thoughts and post memes that contradict the other like Hillary Clinton. If anything i suggest you looking into Submedia or Earth first. They have deeper info and content. More than the young turks as well.

  • so what’s the solution? anarchy? i know what i think it means, no rulers ,no serfs. no initiating violence. what about land ownership?do you keep what you had during the old system or only what you built and can maintain?

    • What about sensible reforms? What about getting money out of politics, setting terms limits like 15 years for SCOTUS and 15 or 20 years for Congress? What about election reform?

    • that would be a good start.i’d include scrapping all laws except for 3. no harm no fraud no theft

    • Election reform… Written by politicians. What a magical belief.

    • As for anarchy, what about people replacing the government with consensual human interaction, rather than government force?

    • isn’t that anarchy? i was brought up to believe anarchy was chaos but i think your definition is more accurate

  • evils sick twisted mind.

  • Uuuuummmmm depending on your definition of criminal, I’m pretty ok with almost everything you’ve put on here

    • Yea, because shitting on the constitution and peoples rights, inciting violence in other countries, wasting tax dollars, forcing private companies to fire people, lobbying with ill gotten gains, using militarized police to carry out Gestapo style attacks on citizens, silencing and manipulating the media, supplying weapons to hostile threats to the world at large, penalizing full time pay, jailing people in the name of censorship, allowing and aiding IRS agents in the act of embezzlement, providing foreign aid to an enemy country, aiding in the destruction of small businesses, violating the peoples right to a fair trial, and not only supporting, but going above and beyond using the fucking patriot act to violate the peoples rights is so good. Sounds like an awesome dude. You are a piece of shit if you actually read and understood what was on that page.

  • Two words….GEORGE BUSH! Cmon people!

  • Free Thought site supports Bernie , left wing site …

    • Well, since the right wing is a bunch of crazy fascists, left wing is the reasonable choice.

    • Well, since they both do the same thing when they get into office, you’re stupid for believing in either side…

    • Yes and the NDAA and Freedom act were signed by the left so I guess we should vote for neither because both are fascist.

      Nice try to get your version of fascism implemented Phillip.

  • Will or would? You guys know something I dont?!?!?

  • Yer mixing yer metaphors. Stick all domestic things into a story and then stick all foreign things into another. You are doing a sophomoric attempt to draw correlation into cause and then intent.

  • Lot’s of people seem to think POTUS makes these decisions. I find that very hard to believe.

    • Just because someone else is telling a puppet how to call the shots, it doesn’t mean they don’t have the ultimate power to make the call.

  • Wake Up PhilipBoese

    The Dempcrats are funded by the Bog Money Centers and Onyernational Cps. What do you think the trade agreements are ? US is largest Arms dealer in world. War is big business ..

  • Point? Which political candidate are you after supporting?
    You point at an Obama AND a Bush AND….., and the next thing people say is “Well, then you cannot go after OUR guy if yours is bad, too! ” And we’re back at ” Do nothing while all the politicians fuck us over until there’s no America left to save. ”
    So.
    What are you saying? You try really hard to be evolved, but this sort of crap just makes you another polarized idiot, and we got so many of those already, that we cannot hope to begin to change anything.
    You should not be proud of this one.
    It marks you as shallow, and destroys your claim of “free thought” utterly.

    • I think they’ve made it clear that it’s not about supporting one side or another. The problem is people like you. You think there is this “good vs. evil” thing going on here and your side is squeaky clean. You are the model citizen that the people at the top love. “muh cundudate”
      This is exactly what it is to NOT be shallow. It shows that they aren’t just dick ridding one side to the point of being on par with any other major news media source. You’re mad because you fear that people will use this info to diminish the way other people view “your side” when you are arguing with them. You are the epitome of a blind stubborn fool. If you don’t support the things “your side” is doing, then don’t. Say it’s fucked up and that it should be stopped. Don’t try to hide the fact of it’s existence just because you want to win an internet argument.
      The problem is that you are asking who you should support on a page called “The Free Thought Project.com”. That’s fucking stupid.

    • David Cole Nope.
      I think they’re all criminals.
      I was getting after FTP for electing to muddy waters and go after this bullshit, instead of working on the future.
      You accused me of being exactly what I hate, and in so doing, have made yourself exactly that.
      Your assumptions are very far off, andyou are totally secure in them. And you’re ready to hate , not work together but divide.
      Fucking idiot.

    • Because it’s totally pointless to look at the past to see where we(or others) fucked up. You can’t move into the future without a good understanding of the past. It’s been proven time and time again. Humanity has a tendency to repeat itself in the worst ways possible, and it could always be prevented by looking at the signs. You are now more clearly saying to ignore the wrongdoings of what will soon be our former leader because we need to look to the future. The problem is that he did the same fucking thing that the guy before him was doing. If people cared to look back a few short years, they could have seen all of this coming and tried to stop it. But you know, it would “muddy waters” to try to stop the “change” train.

      By saying “Which political candidate are you after supporting?
      You point at an Obama AND a Bush AND…..” You imply either that this site should support one side of an idiotic argument of who’s right, or not bring it up at all. In either case, you’ve started off in a terrible position. On one hand, you want either left or right wing propaganda. On the other, you want the wrongdoings of both pushed out of peoples minds. Both of those peoples wrongdoing SHOULD be looked at, and SHOULD have action taken against. Also, the question “Which political candidate are you after supporting?”. Even rhetorically, that’s a silly thing to ask a site that promotes the idea of “free thought”.

      Then you go on to say “and the next thing people say is “Well, then you cannot go after OUR guy if yours is bad, too! ” And we’re back at ” Do nothing while all the politicians fuck us over until there’s no America left to save. “”. Here you are likely doing one of two things. My choices were, either you were saying that people shouldn’t be privy to this information because it will give them a leg up in future arguments, or you are simply implying that people would be too stupid to see the bigger picture about the corrupt shit going on when they see the wrongdoings of a certain side, and making up a thought at the end that you think the people reading the info would come to.

      Then you go on to say that the post makes them look “polarized”, as if they don’t call out other people on the other side all the time. In fact, this whole statement “You try really hard to be evolved, but this sort of crap just makes you another polarized idiot, and we got so many of those already, that we cannot hope to begin to change anything. ” implies that you see people as so incredibly stupid, that they will only use the information obtained in such a way that it would be destructive for the information to be displayed at all! You are flat out saying that this information will create onesidedness in such a way that people shouldn’t know about it.

      What you are saying in the end is that they are destroying their claim of “free thought”, by putting out facts and letting people make up their mind. The implication being, whether you meant it or not, that silencing the wrongdoings of our current leader will help to progress our nation in the future. That IS fucking stupid.

  • All of Congress are criminals as well. There is no solution in our political process. Washington is a corrupt entity. The head of the snake is the Federal Reserve. Cut off the head1

    • Cut off the head and burn the body. Only way to rid ourselves of this garbage govt under which we live.

  • They all do….Bush was worse

  • “Will Bernie be different?”…that’s a good question. He’s different enough that I’m supporting him in the primary-I do think he’s an overall honest man, and someone who genuinely cares about average Americans. But once he wins the primary, he’s still gotta convince me he should get my vote in the general election. But out of the other choices among Dems & Repubs, he’s the only candidate worthy of consideration. Well, Trump might be entertaining/amusing but I’m none too sure he’d be good for the country!

    • I was hardcore into Sarah Palin for president. I thought that would have been amusing as hell.
      I mean fk… At least give us a show

    • Dave, none of them would be good for the country. That’s the point. Like the old joke says, if hitler were running against Stalin in the U.S., one of them would get 50+% of the vote.

    • Repost: I agree. I dunno why we are even talking about the president, it’s not like they have any power or authority.

    • Rand Paul is who I believe would be the best next president. Don’t think he has a chance, but imo, better than anyone else in our two party system.

    • Perry Graf …therein lies the problem. Too many people are fixated on the “two party system”. What do you think would happen if every single person in America who was reluctant to vote for either side, and only doing so to vote for what they perceive as a “lesser of two evils”, all voted for third party candidates instead? Jill Stein from the Green Party and Steve Kerbel of the Libertarian Party are worthwhile options, and voting outside the two party box accomplishes two things-it sends a message to our two primary parties that a significant number of voters are fed up with their BS, and it inspires other voters to look at other options in future elections.

  • Ppl r nuts

  • In other words, Obama simply followed in Bush’s footsteps, following the same blueprint, just with different actors.

    • I agree. I dunno why we are even talking about the president, it’s not like they have any power or authority.

    • Oh, but it’s republicans versus democrats! Don’t you know how this works! lol…

  • This nothing more than libertarian propaganda!

    • Why do you think Obama is great when he supports Monsanto? You do understand the main logic of libertarians is to give you rights? Democrats are not true liberals. A true liberal believes rights for all and that the government should not have its hand in everything. In the past few years democrats have started using the label “liberal” to make themselves appear better than “consevative” republicans. Yes, the majority of what republicans stand for besides gun rights are violating rights of people, but so are democrats. Why does Obama continue the policies of Bush? Instead of invading countries with people on the ground we send illegal drone strikes. If they stopped bombing people, legalized marijuana and stopped fining people for being unable to pay for “Obama care” you could say they were after what’s best for you. Well they kill kids daily, steal resources frm other countries, out poison in your water, approve extremely harmful drugs for use on children and allow Monsanto to do everything they want to. Libertarians are the best bet we have for actually living in a more free society.

    • How is the truth propaganda?

    • >It don’t support muh side
      >Must be propaganda
      You are fucking stupid.

    • Appreciate your points,I just have a small problem with the logic, your end game has no place for government or for societal maturation,only societal dehumanization from self absorption.

    • Oh and your anger is quite noticeable.

    • So with that in mind, you’re saying that it’s ok to bad things to good people in order to establish a greater good. Wow, where have I heard that before…

    • Calling people stupid is not acceptable. The end game is to have a free market and a governmwnt regulated by the people like it’s supposed to be. No need for dehumanization, but we must accept the reality of the situation. The ones in control are not here for the greater good. Even looking at what they did with cigaretts. They raised the price and made them all “fire safe cigarettes” when in all reality a burning cigarette is hardly an issue. Now every pack of cigarettes is at least twice the price and coated with bands of a plastic-like material. They could have just made it illegal to put all the chemicals they do in cigarettes which realistically are what is causing thr majority of the cancers. Or just banned cigaretts, but the price hike is actually taxes paid on cigarettes. So instead of making them actually safer or just banning them they simply made taxes higher on them and made them more hazardous for your health. They actually lowered the amount of nicotine in the tobacco too, so people are actually smoking and buying more of them to get the nicotine they require to satisfy their addiction.

    • I support redistribution of power and many things I am sure we can agree. What we won’t agree on is the swiftness of change or the priorities of progressing,if my lack of urgency is a problem it’s based on my limited understanding of the past, my age and my own personal growth as subjective as it is. In my perception of reality information is traveling faster than my now is emerging,so my understanding will most likely be seen as friction by others, while the rate is perfectly suitable to my attainment. I sincerely Hope you vote for Bernie and you settle for a more structured revolution. Regards MK

    • David Cole I new Hitlers son skip when he was doing stand up in Vegas years ago he was a great guy he hated his dad as much as the Jewish guys in the band.

  • If that is the case why haven’t you lead a drive to have him taken to court?

  • BS!!!!

  • Cynicism is just another example of IQ without attaining wisdom.

  • What does Bush, Cheney, Obama, Clinton (Bill & Hillary), Feinstein, McConnell, and Reid have in common?

    They all advance a “Free Market” Corporate Agenda as pushed by their masters, the Plutocracy. Marketing calls them “Job Creators”.

  • ,They are not going to do ANYTHING to Obama ,,,because if they do,,, they have to go after the biggest F**k ups of them all Bush and Cheney,,and you know that’s not going to happen like it did not happen to LBJ, Nixon, and Reagan

  • Every US president has broken the law during their tenure, and not just US law, but international law, without ANY consequences .

  • Presiden Bush was just as bad.

  • The question is. Do the terrorist Rothschilds and Zionists control Bernie as well.

  • its good to be the king

  • Actor, liar, criminal. Arrest the traitor Obama!

    • This pic was taken crying over dead babies you idiot

    • Lol Stfu sheepie. Get off this site and back to your fox news moron.

  • Only broke the law 78 times in 8 years?? Catch up Obama lol

  • Will any candidate be different? No.

  • Although responsible, we need to look past the puppets and jail the real criminals like the international bankers who run this country.

  • get real!

  • i hate this racist shit,man up and call him what you really want to call him.Every us president could be considered a war criminal,YOU KNOW WHY THEY AREN`T IN JAIL OR DEAD,cause the winners of war get to write history,if the nazis had won ww2,who do you think would have been on trial for crimes against humanity.

  • Great post, check out the alternative news aggregate site I made to wake people up!
    http://cosmicdisturbance.us/

  • get a life

  • And WTF Is anyone gonna do about it? Sense 911 all these posts are people barking..When are the people gonna start biting?

  • Nope,he’s another Obama .He’s as much a part of the establishment in Washington as the rest of the dirt bags there

  • In this political arena, only the most ruthless politicians can claw themselves to the top. Don’t underestimate the president as either weak or timid, he has an ability to manipulate people and circumstances to achieve his goals. If he breaks laws, it wouldn’t surprise me. Too bad, he is basically unaccountable for these transgressions, same as all his predecessors.

  • Yo, I’m pretty anti-Obama, but I’m still going to have to point out that the majority of the things on this list are not crimes, just moral failings. Stick to the actual crimes and make a list that is 25 bullet points long and it’s still pretty damning, this is just sloppy journalism.

    • “Obama actually asked a Jewish singing group to take down its video from the Internet in 2011.” How any sane person could think that this is somehow against the law is beyond me. The guy is a war criminal, you don’t have to bring up petty shit like this to make your point.

  • No he won’t. Im voting for Gary Johnson

  • You have to step away from the 2 party bandwagon before there’s any hope of seeing it clearly.

  • OBAMA SEES A TERRORIST AND FAILS TO REPORT IT

  • He is a commie

  • Wow, well done!

  • Duh! Disagree!

  • Ron Paul is much worse. He supports whole gun industry and Obama only a part. Imagine what would happen if such guy like Ron would be in power!!! The whole world would flow with blood! He is a perfect war criminal!

    • What drugs are you on and where did you hear that?

  • That moment berney has alrdy been cause stealing campaign money lol

  • Criminal in Chief huh?

  • he really needs to give that peace prize back

  • and the country is in better shape now than in the past few decades. Good for him

  • I would SO LOVE to find out that the buffoon who knows NOTHING OFTHE LAW and wrote this garbage got his biggest fantasy. Which of course is a Black helicopter ride to a BLACK SITE and he learns just how long he can hold his breath under water. Then he finds his missing finger in a meat loaf dinner. LMAO!

  • I LOVE OUR PRESTDENT

  • Obombu should get another meaningless nobel prize for that.

  • how many laws did bush broke

  • no one said it but every post I read essentially said , GO BERNIE!..in round about ways

  • Jay Marshall

  • Yes. Bernie would be way better

  • Democrats are only slightly less dangerous than Republicans. At this point I feel like Republicans have one job. Stopping idiotic gun control legislation.

    • Idiotic gun control? Yeah, must be really idiotic to make it so all sellers at gun shows and swap meets to have to be licensed, idiotic to make buyers have to do background checks for all gun show and swap meet purchases. Nothing infringed your precious gun rights, I mean unless you’re mentally unstable, at which point you shouldn’t be allowed to own a gun in the first place. But, yes..all idiotic. Smfh

  • Fuck obama

  • Every American President in the Last 30-40 Years Is a War Criminal

  • This page is a Fucking joke,You guys are Douchenozzles and wouldnt know the first thing about “thought” better name would be “THEFUCKEDTHINKINGPROJECTOFDOUCHERY” What a bunch of idiots, how about “THEFOXTHOUGHTPROJECTOFDOUCHERY” thats kinda’ catchey, or “THEFREEFROMTHINKINGATALLPROJECT” its just not as good without “OFDOUCHERY”, I dont know,just thought the name should reflect the page,you know?

  • Will Trump be any different? Will Ted Cruz be any different from George W Bush?

  • Eat your heart out!

  • you’re right, you do sound like FOX news. While i’ll agree with about half, the other half those 78 times sound like republican sour grapes

  • Fox news would not make arguments that make this much sense.

  • This is bullshit.

  • Unfortunately presidential elections are the wool pulled over your eyes. It really doesn’t matter which is voted in whilst the rich and powerful, such as defence contractors and oil tycoons, rule your nation. As they rule here in Britain too. 🙁

  • Yeah, but he remembered to bring snacks.

  • moore truuuth!

  • all presidents break the law. its their job to be good little law breaking puppets. this article is acting like its something new. lol

  • be unashamedly controversial, this is the truth

  • All politicians are criminals

  • Bernie has never turned his back on us with the courage to stand up against all the corrupt S.O.B.s for 40+ years, so we must do the same.

  • Bunch of right-wing BS.

  • INFOWARS GET FUCKING REAL UNLIKING YOUR FUCKING PAGE

  • No one is above the Law .

  • Actually the number is closer to zero times but thanks for playing.

  • That’s what you get when you are the President of the United States of Israel…!!!

  • Bernie won’t be our president because he fucking sucks. We will have a right wing conservative who will cut taxes and get the government out of our lives that’s what we need

    • That’s the bigest joke I ever heard, clearly you don’t know they GOP party like you think you do. The right wing supports the Patriot Act and wants to keep it going. The right wing is funded by Wall Street and corporations. Only corporations will get tax breaks and the rich.

    • Right wing conservatives like rand pual and ted cruz hate the patriot act don’t be such such a fucking moron

    • Liam Condon, the only fucking moron here is you, you seriously think any member of the GOP or the Tea Party has you in their minds? Unless you can line their fucking pockets, you’re not even a drop in their bucket! What’s one thing Congress, or Senate (being both GOP controlled) has passed for anything other than Corporations, or the filthy fucking rich? Go ahead, where’s the jobs bill congress promised? Hmmm?

    • They shouldn’t be passing any thing they should be cutting spending and then getting the fuck out of our lives. The best government is a small one.

    • Liam Condon do you not realize it was President Bush who signed the Patriot Act you fucking mother breather. The GOP wants to control people’s lives especially women and their reproductive rights and interfering with the rights of the LGBT community. I agree with cutting spending especially if it doesn’t benefit Americans like invading Middle Eastern countries and giving Israel money for their “defense”

    • Mouth*

    • Lmfao but bush is not a real conservative. The tea party movement hates bush and hates spying on people. Calling bush a conservative is like calling Rubio or jeb a conservative (there not) right wing conservatives (the real ones not the idiots like Christie who just say they are) have been fighting the patriot act rand pual was the one who who fillabustered it! They also support states legalizing marjuana and they supported states legalizing gay marige. Sadly because of idiotic fake conservatives like bush and (hilarious) ignorant socialists like you right wing conservatives get a bad rep. But it’s some one like bernie who would actually give the government more control over you’re life. Learn your self some knowlage you dumb mother fucker

  • This is an extremely smart man . Too smart to break any laws. Where is the endictment ?????

  • Its ok it happens with every President and will keep happening and nothing you can do about it. Next topic

  • Greg Weis Jr.

  • Every presidential candidate says a lot of things but follows through on half or less than half of what they say. Bernie’s actions during his time as a Senator says a lot. Remember Bernie voted against invading Iraq…

  • If a president has the gumption to stand up to unjust laws and do what is right, then I by all means support that.

    • What the fuck is morally right about using any part of the patriot act, spying on US citizens, having people executed with no due process, or using the police as a Gestapo style strike force? People like you are why I just can’t feel all that bad when a government force slaughters it’s people like dogs. It takes a nation of brain dead idiots to let it get to that point in the first place. I mean yea, it’s too bad about the ones who fought it tooth and nail, but there’s no excuse for for people to follow their leaders to the fields they get mowed down in.
      Oh well, just another step closer to that boxcar, eh?

    • I’m making no claims about any specific actions and I’d appreciate you not putting words in my mouth or making unfair assumptions. I meant only what I explicitly said.

      My main intent was to point out the hypocrisy of the original post.

    • Oh please, there’s no way you could not see the implications of what you said in relation to the content of the post. There is no hypocrisy in what is said in the post. He committed criminal acts while in office. Things that the common man would be put in prison or even put to death for. The only way it would be hypocritical is if the laws were “unjust” in the first place. They weren’t.

    • For the record I only skimmed the article. I figured this was mainly a statement about Obama’s recent gun control executive action and used an image made by this very group to illustrate the hypocrisy of criticizing Obama for breaking the law when this very group advocates breaking the law when the law is believed to be unjust. That sounds sufficiently hypocritical to me.

    • I don’t advocate breaking the law. The law is there to keep us safe and give everyone the same basic human rights and freedoms. But at the same time, laws can be corrupt and influenced by other powers (like money) and end up not benefiting the people. I do support abolishing such laws by whatever means possible. But it must be something the people demand. Going against the senate or congress is one thing; going against the will of the American people is another entirely.

    • So if it is the will of the people to be able to defend their rights sufficiently through the possession of firearms in order to retaliate against unjust government opposition, without the government being able to record and index their existence in order to seize the weapons they own or outright capture them one by one at a time of their choosing, those people should have that right without the threat of government opposition? I mean, so say the people and all of that, of course…
      Or is this one of those double standards where the ability for government control and security trumps the will and freedom of the common man, so say the governing force looking to gain tighter control of it’s people through more strict regulations and laws? Even if these laws go directly against the basic principles set up in the constitution that was written by the founding members of the republic for which it is supposed to stand. What then is that republic, other than a mockery of it’s former self, if it can’t even hold true to the basic principals upon which it was founded?

    • No no, not without the threat of government opposition. You don’t break a government’s laws without expecting consequences. An armed uprising is a last resort. The purpose of a government is to represent its people. If the people demand guns and the government forbids it, then yes, that is grounds for an uprising. But make no mistake, that’s not what’s happening here. I don’t think the majority of Americans are against stricter gun regulations. Rather, that’s the Republican controlled senate (or is it congress?) that is blocking it, rather UNdemocratically. They weren’t elected to those positions after all.

      The most peaceful means of resolution should always be pursued first, and only if that fails should more drastic measures be taken.

      Government control should never trump the will of the people. That’s called corruption and it is a cancer to the freedom of a nation.

  • war crimes

  • “Will Bernie be different”
    No. Fuck off. ALL government is immoral

  • No Bernie Sanders won’t be better he will be worse

  • Mmmmm the smell of republican bullshi* in the afternoon, Obama did this, Obama did that, you trully have become Faux Noise. Write some more BS articles, a good laugh helps throughout the day. “Free Thought” should be renamed “Conservative Thought”, you’ve become one sided, and that seems to be right sided.

  • We don’t need someone different. All we need is a new face to fool the public. We need someone who can coincide with modern day white house politics. Someone electible. And put the cost of medical insurance and modern day tuition on everybody. Rich and poor. He can work. And I
    Obama laid the ground work. None of us can deny we want a better america. Bernie sanders is the only way.

  • But none of this changes the fact that Donald Trump is still the Great American Asshole!!

  • No your worse then fucking fox news.

  • What bull shit is this.

  • If you’re going to bash Bernie Sanders, then please have a viable alternative that can actually happen in 2016. Otherwise, you’re not much better than the GOP and their attempts to repeal Obamacare…. to absolutely NO alternative.
    The revolution is coming #FightBigMoney #FixDemocracyFirst #GetMoneyOut #FeelTheBern Represent.Us

  • I really doubt if all of these are even true, but there’s no way Obama could compare with the Bush/Cheney administration as far as illegal activities and crimes! He’s intelligent comment diplomatic, and has had to fight Congress on every movies made. Considering the resistance he’s had, I think he’s done a wonderful job. Republicans just don’t like him because, for one thing, he’s not Republican, and for another thing he’s black.

Close
