As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama is at Two Dozen Scandals and Counting

NOTE: To learn more, get The Obama Scandals today.

President Obama claims that Republicans are busy probing “phony scandals.” But the sheer number of scandals suggests that misbehavior, abuse of power, and possibly corruption are not something being dreamed up by the GOP, but a defining characteristic of the Obama administration.

Here is a full list of the administration’s most egregious scandals. The ones we know about, at least. I’ve added four since the last time we ran the list – an increase of 20 percent!

1. IRS targets Obama’s enemies: The IRS targeted conservative and pro-Israel groups prior to the 2012 election. Questions are being raised about why this occurred, who ordered it, whether there was any White House involvement and whether there was an initial effort to hide who knew about the targeting and when.

2. Benghazi: This is actually three scandals in one:

  • The failure of administration to protect the Benghazi mission.
  • The changes made to the talking points in order to suggest the attack was motivated by an anti-Muslim video
  • The refusal of the White House to say what President Obama did the night of the attack

3. Watching the AP: The Justice Department performed a massive cull of Associated Press reporters’ phone records as part of a leak investigation.

4. Rosengate: The Justice Department suggested that Fox News reporter James Rosen is a criminal for reporting about classified information and subsequently monitored his phones and emails.

5. Potential Holder perjury I: Attorney General Eric Holder told Congress he had never been associated with “potential prosecution” of a journalist for perjury when in fact he signed the affidavit that termed Rosen a potential criminal.

6. The ATF “Fast and Furious” scheme: Allowed weapons from the U.S. to “walk” across the border into the hands of Mexican drug dealers. The ATF lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which were used in crimes, including the December 2010 killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

7. Potential Holder Perjury II: Holder told Congress in May 2011 that he had just recently heard about the Fast and Furious gun walking scheme when there is evidence he may have known much earlier.

8. Sebelius demands payment: HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius solicited donations from companies HHS might regulate. The money would be used to help her sign up uninsured Americans for ObamaCare.

9. The Pigford scandal: An Agriculture Department effort that started as an attempt to compensate black farmers who had been discriminated against by the agency but evolved into a gravy train delivering several billion dollars in cash to thousands of additional minority and female farmers who probably didn’t face discrimination.

10. GSA gone wild: The General Services Administration in 2010 held an $823,000 training conference in Las Vegas, featuring a clown and a mind readers. Resulted in the resignation of the GSA administrator.

11. Veterans Affairs in Disney World: The agency wasted more than $6 million on two conferences in Orlando. An assistant secretary was fired.

12. Sebelius violates the Hatch Act: A U.S. special counsel determined that Sebelius violated the Hatch Act when she made “extemporaneous partisan remarks” during a speech in her official capacity last year. During the remarks, Sebelius called for the election of the Democratic candidate for governor of North Carolina.

13. Solyndra: Republicans charged the Obama administration funded and promoted its poster boy for green energy despite warning signs the company was headed for bankruptcy. The administration also allegedly pressed Solyndra to delay layoff announcements until after the 2010 midterm elections.

14. AKA Lisa Jackson: Former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson used the name “Richard Windsor” when corresponding by email with other government officials, drawing charges she was trying to evade scrutiny.

15. The New Black Panthers: The Justice Department was accused of using a racial double standard in failing to pursue a voter intimidation case against Black Panthers who appeared to be menacing voters at a polling place in 2008 in Philadelphia.

16. Waging war all by myself: Obama may have violated the Constitution and both the letter and the spirit of the War Powers Resolution by attacking Libya without Congressional approval.

17. Biden bullies the press: Vice President Biden’s office has repeatedly interfered with coverage, including forcing a reporter to wait in a closet, making a reporter delete photos, and editing pool reports.

18. AKPD not A-OK: The administration paid millions to the former firm of then-White House adviser David Axelrod, AKPD Message and Media, to promote passage of Obamacare. Some questioned whether the firm was hired to help pay Axelrod $2 million AKPD owed him.

19. Sestak, we’ll take care of you: Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel used Bill Clinton as an intermediary to probe whether former Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) would accept a prominent, unpaid White House advisory position in exchange for dropping out of the 2010 primary against former Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.).

20. I’ll pass my own laws: Obama has repeatedly been accused of making end runs around Congress by deciding which laws to enforce, including the decision not to deport illegal immigrants who may have been allowed to stay in the United States had Congress passed the “Dream Act.”

21. The hacking of Sharyl Attkisson’s computer: It’s not clear who hacked the CBS reporter’s computer as she investigated the Benghazi scandal, but the Obama administration and its allies had both the motive and the means to do it.

22. An American Political Prisoner: The sudden decision to arrest Nakoula Basseley Nakoula on unrelated charges after protests in the Arab world over his anti-Muslim video is an extraordinarily suspicious coincidence. “We’re going to go out and we’re going to prosecute the person that made that video,” Hillary Clinton allegedly told the father of one of the ex-SEALs killed in Banghazi.

23. Get rid of inconvenient IGs: Corporation for National and Community Service Inspector General Gerald Walpin was fired in 2009 as he fought wasteful spending and investigated a friend of Obama’s, Sacramento Mayor and former NBA player Kevin Johnson. The White House says Walpin was incompetent.

24. Influence peddling: An investigation is underway of Alejandro Mayorkas, director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, who has been nominated by Obama for the number two post at the Department of Homeland Security. Mayorkas may have used his position to unfairly obtain U.S. visas for foreign investors in company run by Hillary Clinton’s brother, Anthony Rodham.

  6. obama violated the logan law–when he was sen from ill–he went to africa and campaigned for his muslim terrorist half brother or cousin.. remember the photo of obama in a red and white dress? he stole 27 billion dollars of gen. mtrs bonds and gave the remainder money to the u.a.w. union instead of the bond holders–a violation of the 5th amendment-2nd part and the first time in the history of the usa the bondholders were stiffed.. these bonds came from state-govt–locaL GOVT PENSION FUNDS AND FROM PRIVATE CITIZENS WHO HAD PURCHASED THEM FOR RETIREMENT INCOME.. IT IS AGAINST THE LAW FOR THE GOVT TO STEAL PRIVATE PROPERTY. HE HAS MADE SURE HIS UNCLE AND WELFARE QUEEN AUNTIE WERE NOT DEPORTED AS THEY ARE BOTH ILLEGAL ALIENS AND HAD AVOIDED DEPORTATION ORDERS UNTIL OBAMA TOOK OFFICE. I JUST DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY CONGRESS DOES NOT6 TAKE MORE ACTION –THE GENERALS ARE WATCHING HIM AS HE DESTROYS OUR MILITARY. WHAT WILL BE NEXT–DBLE BEDS IN THE BARRACKS FOR THE GAYS AND LESBOS?

  7. Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand so much approximately this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something.

    I believe that you just could do with some % to power the
    message home a bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog.
    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

  8. […] How about three people that were well acquainted with Obama from his Chicago church…killed within days of each other? What about Obama changing his name? Lack of information on his birth certificate? Listen to this interview it’s an eye opener: Just Released Interview: Childhood Friend & Classmate Of Barack Obama Speaks Out! Video Go here for info on White House Scandals. […]

  9. […] Months after the Benghazi scandal there is no Federal prosecutor assigned to investigate the same questions of President Obama.  In fact, there is no Federal Prosecutor to investigate the IRS scandal, the Associate Press leak investigation, the bullying of the Fox reporter.  Heck, there are so many of them t’s hard to keep count but you can read a list of them here. […]

  10. IRS “attacks” pro-Israel groups? Now that’s rich. The head of the IRS was a Zionist. The IRS is the collection agency for the Fed, also owned and operated by Zionists. Yellen, Fischer(former head of the Bank of Israel)…all on the same team.

  11. An intriguing discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that
    you need to publish more on this issue, it might not be a taboo
    subject but typically people do not talk about such subjects.
    To the next! Cheers!!

  12. Howdy this is somewhat of off tpic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
    you have to manually code wiyh HTML. I’m starting a blog soonn but habe
    no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Anyy help would be enormously appreciated!

  13. Excellent goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely fantastic.
    I really like what you’ve acquired here, really like what you’re saying and
    the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still care for to keep
    it sensible. I can not wait to read far more from you.
    This is actually a great web site.

  14. Appreciating the time and energy you put into
    your blog and in depth information you provide. It’s great to come across a blog every
    once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed material.
    Excellent read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m
    including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  15. Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was
    wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours
    and I’m having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!

  16. Hey there would you mind letting me know which
    webhost you’re utilizing? I’ve loaded your
    blog in 3 completely different browsers and I must say this blog
    loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!

  17. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing,
    and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I came across this in my search for something concerning this.

While those who are into graphically intense games like shooters might find the 4670 to be enough, gamers who are into MMOs like World of Warcraft or RPGs like Torchlight will find the Radeon 4670 to be an amazing card.
