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.

    1. Not that this will change your mind, as I’ve often found that it is difficult to convince people to look up their facts.

      In April 2011, President Barack Obama sought to put end to rumors claiming that he was not a natural-born citizen of the United States by obtaining and releasing a copy of his long form birth certificate issued by the state of Hawaii. Officials from that state certified that the copy of the certificate they provided to President Obama was authentic:

  17. We stumbled over here coming from a different
    website and thought I might as well check things out.
    I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward to
    checking out your web page for a second time.

  18. yes the list grows longer and longer every week, something new pops up, very entertaining, makes for good reading or plots to a novel. but in this novel the author is cursed, it seems dear ones that the harder he tries to create a good solid ending the more the ending spirals off yet into a ever worsening nightmare, bringing the would be hero awake screaming’ ‘not me I didn’t do it!1 do over do over!!” and so it does every week, stay tuned.

  19. this is the worst pres ever its time to empeach him and the democrats and some of the gop why arnt the gop doing somthing this has to many scandles in it he need to be locked up with the rest of the crooks to lie to us should have him lock up thanks doug k gop get them out for voter frod put in mitt he would have won

  20. Hey KK, when the Obama administration reaches the TWO DOZEN CRIMINAL CONVICTIONS that occurred under the Reagan administration, including Secretary level convictions and convictions avoided through pardons, THEN let’s discuss your incredibly suspect list of “scandals.” It’s almost comical…

    Perfect example 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.

    Legislation was passed in EARLY 2011 by the Obama administration adding additional oversight to all Conference activity. Under the pre Obama law, this was an acceptable practice. So then you hand wringers go out AFTER a law is already in place to prevent this type of spending, to fins an event that occurred prior to the law being passed, just to feed your hysteria.

    No different then the fact that Reagan took almost 3 times as many vacation days in his first term as Obama and W took 5 times as many days off in his first term, but you all can’t get enough of giving it to the uppity black guy for thinking he can take a vacation day!

    If vacation is an indicator of the value of the President, than since 1960, the Presidents with the fewest vacation days taken per days in office are Carter, Clinton and Obama.

    OK, I’m going to continue. Benghazi? Really? 11 Embassies and consulates attacked under W, including 35 killed in the attack of the American Consulate in Saudi Arabia. How many hearings were there for these 11 Embassy attacks? ZERO…Meanwhile, the attack in the war zone of Benghazi has so far resulted in NINE hearings!!! NINE!

    Interestingly enough the car thief, Issa, refuses to call one witness that can end all of this fabricated drama, General Carter Ham, who TWICE asked Ambassador Stevens if he wanted more security and TWICE Stevens refused.

    Jeeeeezus, 241 Marines wee killed in Beirut by terrorists and not only did Reagan pull the troops with NO retaliation, there were NO hearings even though the DoD found that the primary factor in the Marines being killed was the Reagan cabinet demanding that the soldiers “Stand down their weapons!!”

    1. And Reagan has what in the hell to do with the current demoncrat crimewave?

      Why not blame Nixon or hell Washington? ‘You people’ REFUSE to look at the realities of what you’ve wrought upon this once great republic and act like herd animals in your patented, go to sheeple speak. Did you mention Wal-Mart, Cheney, W and Monsanto…..

  21. It is essential to bear in mind that detox diet programs for weight loss are only intended to eliminate the toxic compounds from your human body.
    A person of the diet program shake recipes

  22. Muy bueno, muy grande. El división sabe dar en el foco del asunto con averiguación de
    primera mano, muy actualizada y sobre todo prestigioso ya que contiene infformes de ajenos culturas
    respecto el individual. Trazar conforme acerca de America de cali de esta carácter exige de entelequia, juicio y lograr una perspicacia del oficial que obtenga generar una gran interactividad.
    Congratulaciones por su esfuerzo.

    be very dangerous. The limited company corporation tax liability
    is also calculated automatically in such a way that all the calculations; additions and deductions are both automated and visible.
