The Year in Obama Scandals

Pages: 1 2

That same month, Bloomberg News columnist Jonathan Alter gushed: “There is zero evidence … of corruption. Where is it?”

Alter’s declaration of the “Obama Miracle” came just weeks after the politically driven half-billion-dollar Solyndra stimulus “investment” went bankrupt, prompting an FBI raid and ongoing criminal and congressional probes of the solar company funded by top White House bundler and visitor George Kaiser.

As Solyndra and an avalanche of other ongoing green subsidy scams erupted, so did the LightSquared debacle — a federal broadband boondoggle involving billionaire hedge fund managers and Obama donors Philip Falcone and George Soros. In September, two high-ranking witnesses — William Shelton, the four-star general who heads the Air Force Space Command, and National Coordination Office for Space-Based Positioning, Navigation and Timing Director Anthony Russo — exposed how the White House had pressured them to alter their congressional testimony and play down concerns about LightSquared’s interference threat to military communications.

The White House continues to block efforts to gain information about the Federal Communications Commission’s approval of a special waiver for the company, even as new government tests this month showed that the company’s “signals caused harmful interference to the majority of … general purpose GPS receivers.”

The Obama White House closed out the year with Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri demanding a probe of the smelly $443 million no-bid smallpox antiviral pill contract with Siga Technologies — controlled by big lefty donor Ron Perelman. Then there was the small matter of massive voter fraud in Indiana, where a Democratic official resigned amid allegations that “dozens, if not hundreds,” of signatures were faked to get Obama on the state primary ballot in 2008. And while Americans busied themselves with the holidays, White House and Democratic campaign officials were dumping more than $70,000 in contributions from another deep-pocketed contributor — scandal-plagued pal and former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, who oversaw the collapse of MF Global.

All this — and so much more — yet erstwhile “conservative” journalist Andrew Sullivan of Newsweek/The Daily Beast scoffed, “Where are all the scandals promised by Michelle Malkin?”

There’s none so blind as those who will not see.

    Obama's scandal free year.

    Of course having CNN, MSNBC, Time Magazine and a host of media prostitutes in the bag may have some bearing on this !!!!!!

    Not much talk about his gun running operation through the Justice Department. I suspect if it wasn't discovered it would have been turned on its ear and made to look like another reason to have gun control in this country. After all, if the Federal Government had control over who purchased guns, this stuff would never have happened. Caught with their hand elbow deep in the crap merely slows this attempt down a bit…but it ain't over.

    I wonder what “Progress” Hillary is making on the International front to curb our American Rights?

    How come Obama's felonious counterfeit birth certificates are
    not part of the litany of scandals? Is everyone in the conservative
    media and republican party afraid they will be called a birther?
    The only one willing to look into Obama's legitimacy is Sheriff Joe Arpaio
    and for that he is being attacked by the federal government. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOVk4ppvNFI
    Hey Newt you are missing a great opportunity. There is a big part of
    the electorate that is sick of how Obama's crimes, lies, distortions,
    obfuscations, omissions and deceits are virtually ignored.
    Just ask The Donald.

    The Left's perception of itself as infallible comes naturally. As Horowitz has written (paraphrasing) "The Left judges itself by its best intentions and judges the Right by its worst deeds." That mindset is also the origin of the Left's notorious Double Standard and its "moral equivalency" arguments in which major malfeasances on the Left are equated with minor offenses on the Right. The Left runs on emotion and wishful thinking; the Right runs on reason and reality.

    Talk but act. This country must be saved from destruction and betray of Democratic Party, Islam and the media. So wake up people, open your eyes and organize this trial for the history of the free world. It is time to do it.
