The worst facts about Barack Obama

There are many reasons that I disagree with Obama, and none of them concern race.

  • He approved “targeted killings” by drone strikes without charge or trial, which have occurred in 6-7 countries.
  • He pushed for TPP.
  • He didn’t charge anyone with crashing the global economy for profit.
  • He reversed restrictions on the NSA’s use of intercepted phone calls and emails, permitting search of everyday citizen communications.
  • He secretly obtained phone records from journalists.
  • He was the first president to be at war the entire length of both terms.
  • He illegally sold thousands of guns to criminals and refused to comply with congressional subpoenas about the operation.
  • He signed a stimulus bill that spent money on bonuses for AIG executives.
  • He protected Clinton’s illegal activity.
  • He has not done anything to help legalize cannabis or otherwise end the War on Drugs.
  • After Solyndra made substantial donations to his campaign, he gave them $535 million before they declared bankruptcy.
  • He lied about the White House’s involvement regarding Bengazi.
  • He gave us a watered down, pro-corporate version of healthcare reform.
  • He used taxpayer dollars to campaign for Hillary on Air Force One.
  • He campaigned on transparency, but he tortures and imprisons leakers and reporters.
  • He appointed many Bush-era war criminals to head the CIA.
  • Without charges, he closed the only two US illegal torture cases, both of which resulted in the death of men in CIA custody.
  • Despite his promises, Guantanamo Bay still has not been closed, and he ordered the 166 prisoners there to be held in “indefinite detention” without charge or trial.
  • He keeps an unknown number of prisoners in secret detention centers (“black sites”), where people are being illegally tortured and banned from accessing courts, lawyers, or charges against them.
  • He circumvented the Freedom of Information Act by requiring “review” of all documents they choose, and then simply not producing them.
