S.C. sheriff refuses to lower flag for Mandela
by Eric Connor, The Greenville News

In South Carolina, the American flag that flies over the Pickens County Sheriff's Office will be raised high over the weekend despite an order by President Obama that flags be lowered to half-staff to honor the death of iconic South African leader Nelson Mandela.
Sheriff Rick Clark told that he is ordering the flag be raised on Sunday because the honor of lowering flags to half-staff should be reserved for Americans.
"The flag at half-staff is for Americans' ultimate sacrifice for our country," Clark said. "We should never stray away from that."

The flag is currently flying at half-staff in honor of a law enforcement officer who was killed and will remain at half-staff tomorrow in honor of Pearl Harbor Day, Clark said.
But on Sunday the flag will be raised, Clark said.
On Thursday, Obama ordered that flags be flown at half-staff until sunset Monday.
The federal flag code "does not prescribe any penalties for non-compliance nor does it include enforcement provisions" and "functions simply as a guide to be voluntarily followed by civilians and civilian groups," according to a U.S. congressional memo.

The truth is that Mandela was not imprisoned on Robben Island without reason – not even because he was merely an opponent of apartheid. He was there because he planned to overthrow a government and in the process, cause the violent deaths of thousands of innocent people (including blacks) – a crime which deserved the death penalty, and he must consider himself fortunate that the so-called apartheid-regime did not press for it. In his auto-biography Long Walk to Freedom, he admits inter alia that he gave the order to plant the Church Street bomb during the 80's, which killed 11 innocent people and injured many more.

7  things Nelson Mandela believed that most people won't talk about

7. On the U.S. war with Iraq:
“If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They don’t care for human beings.”

6. On Israel:
“Israel should withdraw from all the areas which it won from the Arabs in 1967, and in particular Israel should withdraw completely from the Golan Heights, from south Lebanon and from the West Bank.”

5. On the U.S. war with Iraq:
“All that (Mr. Bush) wants is Iraqi oil.” (Note from Norm: The United States never recieved one drop of oil from Iraq.)

4. Mandela on Castro and the Cuban revolution:
“From its earliest days, the Cuban Revolution has also been a source of
inspiration to all freedom-loving people. We admire the sacrifices of the Cuban people in maintaining their independence and sovereignty in the face of the vicious imperialist-orquestrated campaign to destroy the impressive gain made in the Cuban Revolution. … Long live the Cuban Revolution. Long live comrade Fidel Castro.”


3. Mandela on Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, his longtime supporter:
“It is our duty to give support to the brother leader … especially in regards to the sanctions which are not hitting just him, they are hitting the ordinary masses of the people … our African brothers and sisters.”

2. On the U.S. preparing to invade Iraq in a 2002 interview with Newsweek:
“If you look at those matters, you will come to the conclusion that the attitude of the United States of America is a threat to world peace.”

1. On a Palestinian state:
“The UN took a strong stand against apartheid; and over the years, an international consensus was built, which helped to bring an end to this iniquitous system. But we know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.”

Lowering Federal Flags for Nelson Mandela: Thumbing Noses at British Colonizers
What do Winston Churchill and Pope John Paul II have in common with Nelson Mandela? In U.S. history, presidents have given an order to lower our federal flags to half-mast in honor of the death of a foreigner only three times, Nelson Mandela’s death being one of the three, along with Winston Churchill and Pope John Paull II. The Obamas will travel to South Africa for the Mandela funeral. Churchill fortunately died long before BHO could deny this great American ally the honor. You know how he despises those colonizers, and didn’t Churchill thwart the Mau Mau rebellion against the Brit’s Kenyan rule? Yes, I believe he did. Grandpa Hussein Onyango Obama spent some time in a jail cell for supporting the tribe, or maybe he didn’t. History is murky on the details. Five of Grandpa’s friends aren’t convinced, because, you know “People make things up.” Obama released a statement about the death of Britain’s former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on the day she died, but that’s all he did. Neither he nor any member of his administration crossed the pond to attend services.
“Here in the United States, we joined our British friends in mourning the passing of Baroness Margaret Thatcher, a great champion of freedom and liberty and of the alliance that we carry on today,” Obama said.
“Thank you for what you said about Margaret Thatcher,” Cameron responded. “It was a pleasure to welcome so many Americans to her remarkable funeral in the UK.”
Those Americans, however, did not include either the president or first lady. The Telegraph reported:
Significantly, however, those Americans who attended Lady Thatcher’s funeral in St Paul’s Cathedral did not include a single serving member of the Obama administration in Washington. As is so often the case with President Obama, his flowery, grandiose words frequently fail to match his actions. There is a name for this kind of approach – rank hypocrisy. Read more at BizPac Review
The article linked above quotes NPR saying that the honor of lowering our flag is “generally reserved for those with whom the United States has a special relationship.” Obama’s “special” relationships generally have nothing to do with the welfare of the citizens of the United States. Reducing sanctions against Iran to below levels already set by the United Nations is just one example. Wouldn’t it be interesting to see at what mast our flag would fly if the Iranian Ayatollah died?

Speaking of Winston Churchill... Can we add this to the list of lies?
And this from FaceBook
***GREAT NEWS*** THE ANTI-WHITE, MASS MURDERING TERRORIST NELSON MANDELA IS DEAD!!! Nelson Mandela achieved next to nothing in his relatively short political c...areer which saw South Africa rapidly decline to the status of one of the world's most violent and crime-ridden countries, and his greatest friends were communists, tyrants, and dictators like Fidel Castro, Muammar al-Gaddafi, Yasser Arafat, Sani Abacha, Suharto of Indonesia, and Saddam Hussein. His evil ex-wife Winnie Mandela, whom he quickly distanced himself from when it became clear she was a considerable embarrassment to his political career, is a self-confessed advocate of terrorism and violence and has even committed murder. Since Mandela took over, South Africa has become a Third World cesspool. It went from being the safest country in Africa, to being the rape and murder capital of the world. In Johannesburg, 5,000 people are murdered every year. Unemployment went from 5% in 1994 to 50% today. South Africa also has the largest number of people infected with HIV/AIDS in the world. In 2007, over 18% of adults, or 5,700,000 people had AIDS. In 2010, an estimated 280,000 died of AIDS. Inheriting a country with criminally deep socio-economic problems, one might expect resources to be poured into redressing the imbalances of apartheid. Yet once in office, Mandela’s corrupt government slipped into the custom of putting national corporatism, power, prestige, and militarism above its people. Nelson Mandela was the head of UmKhonto we Sizwe, (MK), the terrorist wing of the ANC and South African Communist Party. At his trial, he had pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence including mobilizing terrorist bombing campaigns, which planted bombs in public places, including the Johannesburg railway station. Many innocent people, including women and children, were killed by Nelson Mandela’s MK terrorists. Under white rule, blacks in South Africa enjoyed much better living conditions than any other African country, where blacks kill each other in tribal warfare. In 1994, the same year Mandela took power, the Hutu tribe killed 800,000 Tutsis in Rwanda. Similar tribal genocides have taken place in Congo, Somalia, Ethiopia, Chad, Mali, Zimbabwe, Angola and many more African countries. Tribal savagery and genocide has always been a way of life for Africans...and always will be. If White South Africans were so bad, why has the indigenous population in that country increased over 30 times since the arrival of the first European? Since 1994, more than 68,000 whites have been brutally tortured and murdered by blacks in South Africa, in ways too gruesome to describe, including almost 4,000 Boers whose farms were confiscated by savage murderers, a combined area of over 25,000 square miles. More than double the number of violent deaths have occurred in the 13 years since 1994, when Mandela was released from prison as occurred in the 46 years under White rule from 1948. An estimated 5,000 of those deaths were murders committed by Mandela’s ANC on Black South Africans of the Zulu people by the “necklace” method. A gasoline soaked tire set on fire around a victim’s neck while he or she was alive. The victim may take up to 20 minutes to die, suffering severe burns and inconceivable agony in the process. Mandela’s terrorist wife at the time, the murderous Winnie, proudly shook her box of matches on national TV proclaiming “If we cannot win with the ballot box, we will win with the matchbox.”In his book 'Long Walk to Freedom,' Nelson Mandela wrote that as a leading member of the ANC’s executive committee, he had “personally signed off” in approving deadly acts of terrorism. The horror acts of terrorism to which Mandela had “signed off” for while he was in prison – convicted for other acts of terrorism after the Rivonia trial. The late SA president P.W. Botha told Mandela in 1985, that he could be a free man as long as he did just one thing: ‘publicly renounce violence’. Mandela refused. That is why Mandela remained in prison until the appeaser President FW de Klerk freed him unconditionally. The bottom line? Nelson Mandela NEVER publicly renounced the use of violence and terrorism to further the ‘cause of freedom’. AND had he been convicted of the same crimes in the USA, he would certainly have received the death sentence. When the terrorist Mandela was arrested on his Rivonia farm hideout near Johannesburg, the following munitions and bomb-making equipment were confiscated with him and his comrades: 210,000 hand grenades 48,000 anti-personnel mines 1,500 time devices 144 tons of ammonium nitrate 21.6 tons of aluminum powder 1 ton of black powder Nelson Mandela NEVER publicly sworn off the use of violence to further the cause of ‘freedom’ and never testified before the now disbanded Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Flaming liberals, Hollyweird, and other dangerously misguided souls, the kind that led to the destruction of once peaceful and prosperous South Africa, are still desperately trying to sanitize the "saintly" terrorist Nelson Mandela and his toxic terror organization - the terrorist African National Congress (ANC). The plight of Black South Africans is now actually worse under ANC rule. Contrary to what the media hype, liberal press, and Hollyweird dictates, the ANC is a Marxist-Leninist organization and was supported by the Soviet Union and Cuba for years during the Cold war and was aligned with other terrorist groups throughout the world. It wasn't about apartheid as much as it was about the overthrows of democracies in South Africa and Rhodesia. He orchestrated the murders of innocent white farmers. His wife also organized murders which he was very much aware of. Mandela sang the song “Kill the Farmer, Shoot the Boer” which was a revolutionary song of the ANC. Perhaps what made Mandela such a revered statesman is he was chameleon-like. He could advocate democracy and freedom as the highest ideals one day and hold up Cuba, Libya, or the Soviet Union as shining examples for the world to follow the next day. In his public statements and speeches Mandela was always critical of the democratic countries of the West, but had nothing but praise for the remaining communist dictatorships of the world. And his admirers are to damn stupid to even notice the contradiction, or worse, they agreed with him! In 1991, when Mandela and Winnie went to what they called their "second home" in Cuba to celebrate the communist revolution with Fidel Castro. In his speech Mandela said: "Long live the Cuban Revolution. Long live comrade Fidel Castro... Cuban internationalists have done so much for African independence, freedom, and justice. We admire the sacrifices of the Cuban people in maintaining their independence and sovereignty in the face of a vicious imperialist campaign designed to destroy the advances of the Cuban revolution. We too want to control our destiny... There can be no surrender. It is a case of freedom or death. The Cuban revolution has been a source of inspiration to all freedom-loving people." Mandela's obsequious flattery and hero worship of Castro and Cuba are absolutely astonishing. While visiting the U.S. in May of 1990, he went on record, referring to Cuba: "There's one thing where that country stands out head and shoulders above the rest. That is in its love for human rights and liberty." Mandela is a mass murderer, terrorist and war criminal from the same mold as Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao Zedong, Idi Amin, and Saddam Hussein and many others before them, he has escaped his rightful place before the International Court in The Hague. Even worse, the media turned him into some kind saint-like demigod! Looking beyond the media myth of a “demigod Mandela,” and upon hearing of his death; one can only say: GOOD RIDANCE! ROT IN HELL, NELSON MANDELA!----------"Communists have always played an active role in the fight by colonial countries for their freedom, because the short-term objects of Communism would always correspond with the long-term objects of freedom movements." ~Nelson Mandela 
And this from  Kathleen Young
Just trying to clear up some fantasies people have out there...The Mandela's were not the people you think they were...They stayed on US Terrorists watch until 2008...just saying
In April 1986, Winnie Mandela publicly endorsed "neck lacing," telling a Soweto mob, "With our necklaces we will liberate this country." Mrs. Mandela was also implicated in January 1989 in the abduction of three young men and a boy from a Methodist Church shelter. Mrs. Mandela's bodyguards, known as the "Mandela United Football Club," snatched them and took them to Mrs. Mandela's home where they were beaten, whipped and subjected to other forms of torture. The object was to get them to say that the Methodist minister, who is white, had abused them sexually. Two of them did so but later recanted. A third escaped. The boy, 14-year-old Mokhetsi "Stempie" Seipei, did not give in and was beaten into unconsciousness. On January 7, 1989, his battered body was found in a field with his throat slit. Stempie was famous as an anti-apartheid activist, having been arrested for his activities when he was only 10.
This photo is called "Necklacing", Winnie's idea...look it all up, it's you can hate me for pointing things out and bursting your bubble, but it is what it is...History people.

Have you ever been to an IKEA store? It's a maze of furniture!

You've heard of the best beer prank ever (link) ...
Now someone has come up with the best IKEA prank ever...
source: Neatorama

Ylvis is the Norwegian music and comedy group most famous for their song “What Does the Fox Say?” Its members pulled this delicious prank at an Ikea store. There was a mock house in that store. Ylvis altered it so that the entrance and exit disappeared. A couple entered to explore the furnishings. But then they couldn’t get out!
It gets even better: one of the pranksters slipped in through a concealed entrance. The couple followed her around, hoping that she knew how to escape.

Is there a statute of limitations on lies? Obama seems to think so!

Obama claims statute of limitation has run out on his use of a fake ID

Sometimes it’s good to go back and revisit an old story, like this one from December 6, 2009. Here Obama admits on video using a fake ID, but noting that the statute of limitations has run out. It’s around 8:51 in the video.

New study confirms economy was destroyed by Democrats

Preface by Norman E. Hooben

Remember when Nancy Pelosi said, “We have to pass the bill so that we can see what’s in it.”  That was in regards to the so-called Affordable Care Act also known as ObamaCare.  Well Congresswoman Pelosi was not the first Democrat to champion that method of shove-it-down-your-throat legislation.  Back in the era when it was not highly derogatory to be referred to a progressive Democrat, Representative Henry B. Steagall of Alabama pushed through the Emergency Banking Act of 1933, referred to as the Glass-Steagall Act.  Steagall reportedly had the only copy of the legislation in the House. He waved it over his head and admonished the chamber to pass the bill, which it did with less than an hour of debate.  So they passed the bill so that we could see what’s in it.  And in it were some good things.
It prohibited commercial banks from participating in the investment banking business. The Act was passed as an emergency measure to counter the failure of almost 5,000 banks during the Great Depression.  And so it lasted a good sixty-six years and generally speaking monetary policies were also good.  Good that is, until Bill Clinton moved into the White House.  Under his leadership the bill was repealed in 1999.
Now I should interject a note here for the naysayers who would reply, “So what!”  Ask any of the Clinton supporters and they will tell you that everything about the economy was just hunky-dory under the Clinton Administration.  The facts prove otherwise in that the strong economy was a direct result of former President Reagan’s policies otherwise known as Reaganomics (argue the point somewhere else, not here).  
Back to Glass-Steagall…  So Bill Clinton got rid of the protection people had from unscrupulous bankers.   Were the bankers banking on Clinton?  You decide.
Clinton was not finished with his plans to collapse the strongest economy in the world.  A predecessor of his, by the name of Jimmy Carter signed into law something called the Consumer Re-Investment Act, aka the CRA.  The CRA appeared outwardly that it would protect the little guy and in some respects it did.  But when Bill Clinton put some teeth into the CRA things began to fall apart…and that was by design.   All New World Order (NWO) participants subscribe to the idea that in order to achieve their goals the current structure has to be removed.  But they will preach* to you in so many nice ways that the average person has no clue to their real agenda. 
Staying on track is sometimes difficult once I mention a new subject like the New World Order.  Suffice it to say the Bill Clinton is a NWO kind of guy and Henry B. Steagall was not.  Both were Democrats but only one was a patriot.  ~  Norman E. Hooben

New study confirms economy was destroyed by Democrat policiesThe Examiner
A new study from the widely respected National Bureau of Economic Research released this week has confirmed beyond question that the left's race-baiting attacks on the housing market (the Community Reinvestment Act--enacted under Carter, made shockingly more aggressive under Clinton) is directly responsible for imploding the housing market and destroying the economy.
The study painstakingly sorted through failed home loans that caused the housing market collapse and identified an overwhelming connection between them and CRA mortgages.
Again, let's review:
-President Bush went to Congress repeatedly (see video below) for years warning them that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were going to destroy the economy (17 times in 2008 alone). Democrats continuously ignored him, shut down his proposals along party lines and continued raiding the institutions for campaign contributions on their way down.
-John McCain also co-sponsored urgently critical reforms that would have prevented the housing market collapse, but Democrats shut that down as well, along party lines, and even openly ridiculed anyone who suggested reforms were protect their taxpayer-funded campaign contributions as the economy raced uncontrollably toward the cliff.
-No one was making bad loans to unqualified people until Democrats came along and threatened to drag banks into court and have them fined and branded as racists if they didn't go along with the left's Affirmative Action lending policies...all while federally insuring their losses. Even the New York Times warned in the late 1990s that Democrats continuing to force banks into lowering their standards would lead to this exact catastrophe.
-Obama himself is even on the record personally helping sue one lender (Citibank) into lowering its lending standards to include people from extremely poor and unstable areas, which even one of the left's favorite blatantly partisan "fact-checkers," Snopes, admits (while pretending to 'set the record straight').
-Even The New York Times admitted that there is "little evidence" of any connection between the "Republican" deregulation measures Obama blames, like the Gramm-Bleach-Liley Act (signed into law by a Democrat), and the collapse of the housing market.
But non-Fox media have spent years deliberately and relentlessly inoculating people against the facts, training them to mindlessly blame Bush for being in charge when Democrat policies destroyed the economy. So here we sit, to this day, still watching Obama excuse and shrug off endless economic failures, illegal government takeovers and utter national bankruptcy with zero accountability.

Impeachment Is Not A Viable Option ~ Obama MUST ifs, ands, or buts

"...all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." ~ IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

World Net Daily Exclusive
U.S. general: Let's make Obama resign
Cites Nixon resignation, urges citizens 'to save republic' from Washington leadership
by F. Michael Maloof

WASHINGTON – A retired Army general is calling for the “forced resignations” of President Obama, other administration officials and the leadership of Congress for the direction they’re taking the nation, his list of grievances including the systematic political purge of hundreds of senior military officers in the U.S. military.

Retired Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely told WND he is calling for nationwide rallies and protests to demand the resignations and added that a peaceful “civil uprising is still not out of question.”

In his capacity as chairman of the organization Stand Up America, Vallely issued what he termed a “National Call to Action” to force the resignations of Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

Vallely, formerly the deputy commanding general of Pacific Command, said the current crop of leaders must be forced to resign by the “demand resignation” process, which he explained requires massive grass-roots protests and social networking. As an example, he cited the public and media pressure that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon.

Impeachment, Vallely said, is not a viable option because of “partisan politics.”

“Our federal government continues down the path of destroying America,” he said. “Americans must now stand up and put America back on the right track.”

In issuing his national call to action, Vallely said the federal government has not subsided in “sucking the oxygen” out of America.

“And we call to action all branches of government to do your constitutional duties and not be led astray in the cultural and moral decay of America. We have witnessed far too many lies,” he said, as well as “deception and the corruption of the republic.”

Vallely reminds Americans that the Declaration of Independence itself states that whenever “any Form of Government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem more likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.”

Vallely said the nation he long defended is self-destructing “before our very eyes,” because of “our inept and incompetent leadership in Washington.”

“The battle is on,” he added, “and we shall not retreat.”

Vallely, who has also served as a Fox News military analyst, claimed the Obama administration and leadership of Congress have been leading the nation down a road of “progressive socialism.”

The retired general said the U.S. faces a battle that is unknown to generations of Americans, and that the fate of the nation is “now in our hands” to enforce the Constitution and “severely limit the federal government and its out-of-control spending.”

He said conditions today are approaching those of the time of the inaugural address of President Abraham Lincoln, who said at the time that people have a “right to rise up and shake off the existing government and form a new one.”

“Shake off,” said Vallely, “means replacing government leaders.” He argued America today bears “many similarities to the fall of Rome.” America, he added, is not immune to collapse or even revolution, which he notes “has happened many times in history. … External and internal threats could precipitate this as well as any financial collapse.”

Vallely added that “politics as usual will not be effective or sufficient enough to turn the country around.”

“We are in a war for America,” he told WND, adding that Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Dr. Ben Carson, the noted brain surgeon and author of “America the Beautiful” and other bestselling books have made similar observations.

Americans have had enough, he said, and the Obama White House and identifiable members of Congress “must now depart from a progressive socialist and treasonous death march and bankrupting the country beyond expectations.”

“A civil uprising is still not out of the question as ‘pain’ grips the country more each day,” Vallely said, adding that there is time to change the country in a peaceful way.

“This means raising your voice now to your neighbors, family, co-workers and friends,” he said. “Be the captains of your souls. I pray for another George Washington to appear within the year and lead us.”

One of the issues that alarms Vallely is the high number of senior officers in the U.S. military who have been fired under the Obama administration, a toll estimated at one officer per week. Indeed, Vallely has been very outspoken to what he calls a “purge” of the U.S. military by the Obama administration — with a stunning nine generals and flag officers relieved of duty this year alone.

WND has been reporting on the surge of firings, suspensions and dismissals, for which Vallely has assigned a good portion of the blame to Obama’s close adviser, Valerie Jarrett. Rampant “political correctness” due to her influence, Vallely tells WND, is now permeating the military and negatively affecting everyone from top generals to the ranks of the enlisted.

According to Vallely, Obama is “intentionally weakening and gutting our military, Pentagon and reducing the U.S. as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged.”

Vallely equated the current treatment of U.S. senior military officers watching over what is said and done among mid-level officers and enlisted ranks to that of the “political commissars from the Communist era.”

He also told WND that the White House won’t investigate its own officials, but finds it easy to fire military commanders “who have given their lives for their country.”

“Obama will not purge a civilian or political appointee because they have bought into Obama’s ideology,” Vallely said. “The White House protects their own. That’s why they stalled on the investigation into Fast and Furious, Benghazi and Obamacare. He’s intentionally weakening and gutting our military, Pentagon and reducing us as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged.”

He’s far from alone in his concerns about the military purge, as J.D. Gordon, a retired Navy commander and a former Pentagon spokesman in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, says the Obama administration is rushing to unload senior officers whom he believes have become “political pawns” dismissed for questionable reasons.

Retired Army Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady, a recipient of the U.S. military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, similarly has told WND that Obama needs to apply the same standards to his political appointees as he does to the military.

“Just when you thought the leadership of this government could not get any worse, it does,” Brady said. “Never in history has an administration spawned another scandal to cover the current one.”

This was a reference to the recent firing of a number of generals to mask “Obama’s serial scandals, all prefaced by lies – Fast and Furious, Benghazi, NSA, IRS,” among others, said Brady, former president of the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.

Retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, who was a founding member of Delta Force and later deputy undersecretary of defense for intelligence under President George W. Bush, tells WND it is worrying that four-star generals are being retired at the rate that has occurred under Obama.

“Over the past three years, it is unprecedented for the number of four-star generals to be relieved of duty, and not necessarily relieved for cause,” Boykin said. “I believe there is a purging of the military. The problem is worse than we have ever seen.”

Examples of Obama’s Lies, Lawbreaking & Corruption
1) Carried out military interventionism in Libya without Congressional approval
In June 2011, U.S. Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) said that Obama had violated the Constitution when he launched military operations in Libya without Congressional approval.
2) Gave a no-bid contract to Halliburton – just like Bush did
In May 2010, it was reported that the Obama administration had selected KBR, a former subsidiary of Halliburton, for a no-bid contract worth as much as $568 million through 2011, just hours after the Justice Department had said it would pursue a lawsuit accusing the Houston-based company of using kickbacks to get foreign contracts.
3) Has an administration full of lobbyists, after promising he wouldn’t have any
While running for President, Obama had promised that, unlike Bush, he would not have any lobbyists working in his administration. However, by February 2010, he had more than 40 lobbyists working in his administration.
4) Has close ties to Wall St., but pretends to support Occupy Wall St.
Although Obama claims to support the Occupy Wall St. movement, the truth is that he has raised more money from Wall St. than any other candidate during the last 20 years. In early 2012, Obama held a fundraiser where Wall St. investment bankers and hedge fund managers each paid $35,800 to attend. In October 2011, Obama hired Broderick Johnson, a longtime Wall Street lobbyist, to be his new senior campaign adviser. Johnson had worked as a lobbyist for JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Fannie Mae, Comcast, Microsoft, and the oil industry.
5) Broke his promise to close Guantanamo Bay
Obama broke his promise to close Guantanamo Bay.
6) Supported the $700 billion TARP corporate-welfare bailout just like Bush
While Senator, Obama voted for the $700 billion TARP bank bailout bill. The bailout rewarded irresponsible and illegal behavior. It redirected resources from more productive uses to less productive uses. It punished the hard working taxpayers who had played by the rules and obeyed the law. It created horrible incentives, and sent the wrong message. The bailout was evil because it rewarded the bad people and punished the good people. No society that does this can expect to remain free or prosperous. Instead of bailing out these corrupt corporations, we should have let them cease to exist, like we did with Enron.
7) Waged the biggest war against medical marijuana of any president, which was the opposite of what he had promised
In May 2008, Obama campaign spokesperson Ben LaBolt said that Obama would end DEA raids on medical marijuana in states where it’s legal. Also in 2008, Obama said that he supported the “basic concept of using medical marijuana for the same purposes and with the same controls as other drugs” and that he was “not going to be using Justice Department resources to try to circumvent state laws.”
However, in February 2010, DEA agents raided a medical marijuana grower in Highlands Ranch in Colorado, a state where medical marijuana is legal. Also in February 2010, DEA agents raided a medical marijuana dispensary in Culver City in California, a state where medical marijuana is legal. In July 2010, the DEA raided at least four medical marijuana growers in San Diego, California. Also in July 2010, the DEA raided a medical marijuana facility in Covelo, California. Then in September 2010, the DEA conducted raids on at least five medical marijuana dispensaries in Las Vegas, Nevada, where medical marijuana is legal. In 2011, the DEA conducted raids on medical marijuana in Seattle, Washington, West Hollywood, California, and Helena, Montana, all places where it is legal. In April 2012, the DEA carried out several raids on medical marijuana in Oakland, California.
In February 2012, Rolling Stone magazine wrote that Obama’s war against medical marijuana went “far beyond anything undertaken by George W. Bush.” In April 2012, Mother Jones magazine wrote: “The president campaigned on the promise that he’d stop federal raids on medical marijuana operations that were in compliance with state laws, a vow that Attorney General Eric Holder repeated after the election. But then the Obama administration raided more than 100 dispensaries in its first three years and is now poised to outpace the Bush administration’s crackdown record.” In May 2012, the Washington Post wrote: “Obama has become more hostile to medical marijuana patients than any president in U.S. history.” In May 2012, U.S. Congressperson Nancy Pelosi (D-California) said she had “strong concerns” about Obama’s forced closure of five medical marijuana facilities in Pelosi’s congressional district. In April 2012, commenting on Obama’s crackdown on medical marijuana, U.S. Congressman Barney Frank (D-Massachusetts) said, “I’m very disappointed… They look more like the Bush administration than the Clinton administration.”
In July 2012, federal prosecutors filed civil forfeiture actions against Harborside Health Center, a medical marijuana dispensary in Oakland, CA, which claims to be the world’s largest, and which claims to serve more than 100,000 medical marijuana patients. In April 2012, federal agents raided Oaksterdam University, an educational institution in Oakland, CA, which teaches people about medical marijuana. In April 2012, federal agents raided a medical marijuana facility which had been serving 1,500 patients near Lake Elsinore, CA. In June 2012, the Obama administration filed asset-forfeiture lawsuits against two landlords who rented their buildings to medical marijuana stores in Santa Fe Springs, CA. The Obama administration also sent warning letters which threatened similar legal action to dozens of other, nearby landlords. During the first seven months of 2012, the DEA shut down40 medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado, all of which had been operating in compliance with state and local law.
In July 2013, the DEA conducted multiple medical marijuana raids in Washington state, including the cities of Olympia, Tacoma, and Seattle.
In May 2012, ABC News reported that during Obama’s youth, he often smoked large quantities of recreational marijuana. Obama’s marijuana smoking wasn’t even medical – it was recreational. And yet now, he is taking large scale, widespread action to prevent people with AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, and other illnesses, who have prescriptions from their doctors, from using their prescription medicine – how cold hearted can a person be?
8) Nominated a six-time tax cheater to head the government agency that enforces the tax laws
Obama nominated Timothy Geithner, a repeat tax cheater, to head the government agency that enforces the tax laws.
Prior to his nomination, Geithner had:
1) Illegally failed to pay more than $34,000 in social security and Medicare taxes
2) Illegally declared the cost of his children’s summer camp as a form of day care.
3) Illegally failed to pay the early withdrawal penalty when he took money out of his retirement plan
4) Illegally declared non-eligible items as a charitable deduction
5) Illegally declared something which was ineligible as a small business deduction
6) Illegally declared utility expenses which had actually been for his personal use
9) Gave tax dollars to AIG executives, then pretended to be outraged about it
Obama signed a stimulus bill that spent money on bonuses for AIG executives. Prior to signing this bill, Obama had said, “when I’m president, I will go line by line to make sure that we are not spending money unwisely.” However, after reading “line by line” and signing the stimulus bill that protected the AIG bonuses, Obama pretended to be shocked and outraged at the bonuses, and said, “Under these circumstances, it’s hard to understand how derivative traders at A.I.G. warranted any bonuses at all, much less $165 million in extra pay… How do they justify this outrage to the taxpayers who are keeping the company afloat?” and also said that he would “pursue every single legal avenue to block these bonuses.”
10) Expanded Bush’s unconstitutional government faith based programs
Obama expanded the federal government’s faith based programs which had been started by President George W. Bush.
11) Supported Bush’s unconstitutional Patriot Act
In May 2011, Obama signed a renewal of the Patriot Act.
12) Increased the national debt more in one term than Bush did in two
The national debt increased more during Obama’s first three years and two months than it did during all eight years of George W. Bush’s presidency.
13) Agrees with Bush’s support of unconstitutional, indefinite detention of U.S. citizens without filing any charges
In December 2011, ACLU executive director Anthony D. Romero criticized Obama for signing a bill that gave the U.S. government the power toindefinitely detain U.S. citizens without any charges being filed or any trial taking place.
14) Agrees with Bush’s support of unconstitutional, warrantless wiretapping
President Obama has defended warrantless wiretapping.
15) Avoided prosecution of Wall. St criminals
Although Obama had promised to prosecute Wall St. criminals, during his entire first term, his administration did not file any criminal charges against any of the top financial executives.
16) Had four U.S. citizens killed without judicial process
Obama had four U.S. citizens killed without judicial process.
The ACLU accused Obama of violating the U.S. Constitution for doing this.
U.S. Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) said that Obama’s actions might be an impeachable offense.
17) Ordered private company to fire 1,000 employees
In 2011, after Boeing had hired 1,000 new employees to work at its new factory in South Carolina, the Obama administration ordered Boeing to shut down the factory, because the factory was non-union.
18) 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. Some of these secured creditors were retired teachers and police officers from Indiana. Richard A. Epstein, a law professor at New York University School of Law, wrote, “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.” Todd Zywicki, Professor of Law at George Mason University School of Law, wrote that Obama’s treatment of secured creditors was “dangerous to the rule of law.” The Economist wrote that Obama’s actions could “establish a terrible precedent. Bankruptcy exists to sort legal claims on assets. If it becomes a tool of social policy, who will then lend to struggling firms in which the government has a political interest?” Francis Cianfrocca, the CEO of Bayshore Networks, wrote that Obama’s actions were “an astonishingly reckless abrogation of contract law that will introduce a new level of uncertainty into business transactions at all levels, and make wealth generation more difficult going forward… An extraordinary uncertainty has been created when the most powerful man in the world can rewrite contracts and choose winners and losers in private negotiations as he sees fit. Since this is an unquantifiable uncertainty, and not a quantifiable risk, its effect on business and investor confidence will be large and unpredictable. As in the 1930s, a time when government also cavalierly rewrote private contracts, the prudent approach for business will be to invest minimally and wait for another administration.”
19) Supported release of convicted mass murderer
In 2010, Obama supported releasing Lockerbie bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi (who had been convicted of murdering 270 people) from prison.
20) Illegally put thousands of guns into hands of criminals
In Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama administration ordered gun storeowners to illegally sell thousands of guns to criminals.
