Obama’s Track Record

 

We’ve previously documented that Obama has redistributed wealth to the super-rich and trampled civil liberties even more than Bush. That Obama has prosecuted more whistleblowers than all other presidents combined … but fewer financial crimes than President Reagan, Clinton or either of the Bush presidents.

Redditor n3uromanc3r adds the following round up of Obama’s track record.

    He’s not the latest who must be impeached, but won’t. The cowed and complicit Congress is likewise, both physically and mentally, fractured and absent knowledge of our system of government in the United States of America.

    The American citizenry must grow beyond their childhood framed notions of their government, and their adulthood childish wants and desires based on the myths of someone’s myth.

    Both of these political parties have shaped and manipulated those who vote into following them on their destructive paths. 80 years of party indoctrination and hate filled spittle is enough. That the 1920s and 1930s brought the rise of dictatorships here and abroad is common knowledge, however much denied and wished away.

    Facing these dictators and removing them is not yet complete, for ours’ remains the last active dictatorial system by ignoring the written words and continuing with despotic actions.

    Why suffer insanity when it’s self-induced? Why continue with the childish ways of others who’s desires remain locked in a myth?

      Obama is NOT the bona-fides POTUS. He is disqualified constitutionally. He is NOT a Natural-Born American Citizen as required by Art.II,Sec.1 of the USConst. Obama need NOT be Impeached. He can be arrested on a simple arrest warrant and tried or the crime of usurpation of the United States Presidency during time of war. An act that makes Obama a spy and subject to execution if convicted.
      Please clarify as to what “Myths” you are referring to. We have American Principles that we use as a template for our government. That there are derelicts that do not use that template does not illustrate that those principles are a “Myth”.

    Obama is a terrorist himself. He “support[s] Zakat” and has been complicit in war crimes. Obama is a fraud and a usurper. Obama,a Muslim supremacist, has usurped the Presidency,by fraud, during time of war. That makes Obama a spy under the UCMJ at S906.A106 and a Traitor under 18USC,Part 1,Chapter 115,Sec.2381.

    The biggest scam and crime in history isn’t on this list.
    That crime is Obama’s throwing away billions of our tax money to enrich his General Electric cronies… and his telecommunications Industry cronies.. bribing the utility companies to force wireless transmitter cell phone substations on our homes, calling them “smart” meters.
    And have you noticed all the cell phone towers everywhere, next to schools, and in our neighborhoods and peppered across the landscape. The telecommunications industry has gone insane.
    The other countries are protecting their citizens from the harmful effects of the radiofrequency microwave radiation emitted from smart meters and cell phone towers. Other countries are banning them…Many are using far superior fiber optic.
    If you bother to read anything not written and sponsored by the government-telecommunication-utility criminals.. you will find out that over the past decades there are thousands of studies showing this radiation is harmful to living thing. This low energy radiation, traveling at the speed of light, alters cell membranes, alters glucose metabolism and cellular calcium channel…
    Obama’s “smart” meters are a class 2 b carcinogen…that he is FORCING on us…
    We’re forced to pay for these expensive so call meters, and will have to by a new one every 3 to 5 years…
    They cost about the same as a laptop computer… Soon we’ll be FORCED to buy “smart” appliances that blast more radiation throughout our homes..
    And, like all wireless devices, such as “smart” meters, “smart” appliances, and even drones, they are hackable… this puts our nation at risk for cyber attack…
    And they NOTHING for the environment, do not save money, and are totally unnecessary for alternative energy use….
    Everywhere they’ve been installed there have been rashes of house fires… and hundreds of thousands of people have been made sick.
    And anyway, since when can the president invade our homes… and force us to buy harmful junk.
