I ask you to please show this list to as many people as possible – and especially, to please show it to as many Obama supporters as possible. Sunshine really is the best disinfectant. I can’t stop Obama from doing any of these horrible things, but I can tell people about what he is doing. So please share this list with others on Facebook, Twitter, etc. Thank you.

Every President, every politician, and every human being tells lies and engages in acts of hypocrisy. But Barack Obama does these things to a far greater degree than anyone else that I have ever known of. His campaign promises were so much better sounding than anyone else’s – no lobbyists in his administration, waiting five days before signing all non-emergency bills so people would have time to read them, putting health care negotiations on C-SPAN, reading every bill line by line to make sure money isn’t being wasted, prosecution of Wall St. criminals, ending raids against medical marijuana in states where it’s legal, high levels of transparency. Obama’s promises of these wonderful things sounded inspiring and sincere. They sounded so much better than the promises of any other President. So when Obama broke these promises, it felt so much worse than when other Presidents broke their promises.

In the 2008 United States election, I wrote in Ron Paul for President. In the 2012 election, I voted for Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson. Those who are of a more leftist persuasion than myself might want to consider voting for the Green Party in future elections.

Some of the things on this list are major events that should scare the daylights out of any true liberal who cares about civil liberties.

Other things on this list are medium things that some Obama supporters may dislike, but would be willing to overlook in light of the things that Obama has done which they like.

And some of the things on this list may seem trivial, but I still think they are an interesting reflection of the kinds of policies that Obama supports.

Every claim that I make in this list is sourced. Click on the blue text to see the sources. I have cited a wide variety of sources, from right wing, to left wing, to middle of the road.

I welcome any comments and criticisms that you may have. If you say my list is wrong, please back up your claim by citing specific examples.

And now, on with the list:

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.

In April 2014, Ralph Nader said that Obama should be impeached for his actions in Libya.

20 Obama Quotes About Islam Contrasted With 20 Obama Quotes About Christianity

From The Truth
By Michael Snyder, on September 27th, 2013
 
Obama messiah
 
You are about to read some of the most shocking quotes that Barack Obama has ever uttered in public.  A few of these have been widely circulated, but most of them are very obscure.  Even though he claims to be a Christian, throughout his political career Obama has repeatedly attacked traditional Biblical Christianity and he has a very long history of anti-Christian actions.  In public speeches he has repeatedly cast doubt on the Bible, he has repeatedly stated that he does not believe that Jesus is necessary for salvation, and he has consistently said that he believes that all “people of faith” believe in the same God.  At the same time, Obama has always referred to Muhammed as “the Prophet”, he has always expressed great love and respect for Islam, and he has even removed all references to Islam from terror training materials used by federal government agencies.  So what in the world does “the leader of the free world” actually believe?  Read the quotes below and decide for yourself…

The civilized world is still reeling from Wednesday’s brutal attack against the French satirical publication Charlie Hebdo by gunmen seeking revenge for cartoons attacking Islam. Nevertheless, Breitbart.com reported Thursday, the White House announced it would make fighting Islamophobia a priority.

“Never mind that most Westerners aren’t Islamophobic, but rather GettingShotInTheFaceForExpressingMyOpinion-Phobic,” Ben Shapiro wrote. Speaking with reporters, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the real problem is lack of leadership in defending Islam.

A gunman took hostages at a kosher market on the eastern edges of Paris Friday, wounding several people, while the two suspects in the earlier deadly terror attack against a newspaper were cornered near Charles de Gaulle airport.

Officials could not immediately confirm a link between the two, but the coincidence spiked fears throughout Paris.

A police official said the hostage-taker at the kosher market, near Paris’ Porte de Vincennes, is armed with an automatic rifle and there are multiple hostages and wounded.

Helmeted SWAT squads converged on the standoff. The French…

Jihad against Jews in Paris

At least two Jews are killed in a Kosher shop in Paris, as we enter the Sabbath.

It looks to late for France to avoid that Muslims will launch a Jihad against the nation. It looks too late for the police in Paris, to avoid the outbreak of Jihad on the soil of France.

Several people were taken hostage at a kosher supermarket in eastern Paris on Friday after a shootout involving a man armed with two guns, a police source said. Two people were killed, according to police sources quoted by AFP.

There were unconfirmed local media reports that the man was the same as the one suspected of killing a policewoman in a southern suburb of Paris on Thursday.

Islam is the Most Violent Religion in the World, But Let’s Keep Calling it ‘Peaceful’ Anyway

From The Blaze
By Matt Walsh   |    Jan. 7, 2015 1:17pm
 

And here we are again. You might recognize this place. We’ve been here frequently over the past, say, 1,500 years or so. It’s the place where the whole world stands in dumbfounded shock after witnessing unspeakable brutality at the hands of Islamists. Maybe we should stop being so surprised.

This time around, three masked gunmen stormed the offices of a French satirical newspaper, executing 12 people in cold blood, including two police officers. This is the same newspaper that infamously published a cartoon poking fun at the Prophet Mohammed a few years ago, and was promptly greeted with death threats and a Molotov cocktail for their troubles. In fairness, there’s still a lot we don’t know about this attack, but it seems very certain that this was another case of Muslim terrorism. The gunmen took out 12 people while shouting “Allahu Akbhar” and “the Prophet has been avenged.” All of this over some jokes in a magazine.

Can you imagine Christian radicals committing mass murder at The Onion offices because they’re upset about something they found on its website? Can you even fathom such a thing? Probably not, because it never happens. It just never happens. And it’s not like Christians don’t have plenty of provocation. I still remember stumbling upon this lovely little gem from The Onion last year. It’s a hysterical article imagining that Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, became a prostitute to make ends meet. Haha?

In this Sept.19, 2012 file photo, Stephane Charbonnier also known as Charb , the publishing director of the satyric weekly Charlie Hebdo, displays the front page of the newspaper as he poses for photographers in Paris. Masked gunmen shouting “Allahu akbar!” stormed the Paris offices of a satirical newspaper Wednesday Jan.7, 2015, killing 12 people including Charb, before escaping. It was France's deadliest terror attack in at least two decades. (AP Photo/Michel Euler, File)

This is the kind of thing Christians encounter all the time. Brutal mocking and ridicule dressed up as “humor,” but designed only to offend. There’s no wit, no punchline, just scorn heaped upon people of my faith. Kind of like this “Family Guy” episode, featuring an adulterous Jesus looking to have sex with a man’s wife. Or that hilarious “Curb Your Enthusiasm” episode a few years back where Larry David peed on a picture of Jesus. Or of course the famous “Piss Christ,” a crucifix dunked in a bottle of urine and passed off as art. Or the painting of the Virgin Mary smeared in elephant dung. Or “Dogma.” Or “The Da Vinci Code.” Or a thousand other examples.

Yet nobody ever died because of any of that. And, oh man, if anyone did, can you imagine the backlash? Can you imagine the media reaction if just one Christian murdered just one person as a reprisal for some offensive joke or provocative cartoon? We’d be ready to ban the entire religion in this country. Progressives are so desperate to prove that Christianity is just as violent as Islam that they frequently cite the murder of abortion doctors as an example. Only, none of those attacks were carried out in the name of Jesus. As far as I’m aware, none of the murderers shouted “Praise be to Christ” when they pulled the trigger. And how many incidents are we even talking about here? I’ll tell you: eight. Eight abortionists and abortion clinic workers have been killed in the U.S. in the past 40 years. It’s happened once in the last decade and a half. Once.

Yet Christians are held to such a high standard that even these extraordinarily rare killings, not even done in the name of the faith, and always condemned by nearly every prominent Christian, are cited in almost every conversation about religious violence. Meanwhile, Muslims just gunned down 12 people over a cartoon this morning, and what do we immediately hear? Islam is a religion of peace.

A White House spokesman came out within hours of the attack and spent about 40 seconds condemning the violence before immediately repeating this same slogan. While another dozen bodies lay dead in the street, we’re told that it all happened at the hands of a “peaceful” religion. (But at least he didn’t repeat Obama’s quote from 2012: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”) This is a sick joke. Islamist militant wreak havoc across the globe, and the best our simpering, kowtowing, politically correct leaders can do is continuously suck up to the religion that produces these travesties like it’s operating some kind of terrorist assembly line. It’s pathetic. It’s shameful.

The Obama Administration Has History Of Blaming Free Speech For Islamic Backlash

From The Daily Caller
By Chuck Ross  |   10:15 PM 01/07/2015
 
obamaun-e1420667417820
 
The last time the Obama administration had reason to mention Charlie Hebdo it was to condemn a series of cartoons the magazine had released in Sept. 2012 satirizing Islam.

And though President Obama offered support for Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday, upon news that Islamic gunmen had stormed the publication’s Paris headquarters, killing 10 journalists and two police officers in order to “avenge the Prophet [Muhammad],” the statements criticizing the satirical magazine’s content two years ago indicate a pattern of thought with regards to free speech and free expression within the Obama administration — at least when it comes to Islam.

Obama’s first such critique came on Sept. 9, 2010, when he responded to Florida pastor Terry Jones who planned to burn copies of the Koran, the Muslim holy book.

“If he’s listening, I just hope he understands that what he’s proposing to do is completely contrary to our values,” Obama told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. “This country has been built on the notions of religious freedom and religious tolerance.”

“I just want him to understand that this stunt that he is pulling could greatly endanger our young men and women in uniform who are in Iraq, who are in Afghanistan.”

Dressed from head to toe in black, two heavily armed gunmen emerge from their small black Citroen at 11.20am on a chilly and dry Paris day.

One carries a rocket-propelled grenade launcher and both are armed with Kalashnikovs.

A third man is in the car. Having abandoned the vehicle in the middle of the tree-lined street, the pair make their way towards the door of No 6, Rue Nicolas-Appert.

National Review Online, Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Post, the Weekly Standard, Bloomberg, the Huffington Post, the Daily Beast, Getty, and some other U.S. media outlets ran one or more of the cartoons today.

Fanatics fear cartoonists: We must NEVER be silenced.

Mac of the Mail reveals his stance on Paris massacre and says everyone must stand together to defend freedom of speech

By Mac for the Daily Mail
Published: 19:55 EST, 8 January 2015 | Updated: 19:55 EST, 8 January 2015

Terrorists are terrified of cartoonists. We have the power to make people laugh at them — we prick their lies and pretensions, and reveal how obscene and ridiculous they are. Of course they hate us.

In the wake of the appalling massacre in Paris, some wonderful cartoons have been flying around the world.

One pithy visual image can sum up emotions that could never be expressed in words.

One of my first thoughts when I heard the news was to draw a cartoon of Al Qaeda gunmen kneeling down to pray . . . but instead of facing Mecca, they are praying to Satan.

I’ve been racking my brains, and I hope that today’s cartoon sums up what we’re all feeling.

LITTLEJOHN on how the State will cede yet more ground to terrorists in the wake of the Paris massacre

Over the Christmas holiday, the BBC broadcast a tribute to that brilliant comedian Dave Allen, who died almost ten years ago.

Much of Allen’s shtick revolved around his Irish Catholic upbringing. He poked merciless fun at nuns and the priesthood, who were portrayed as hypocrites and sadists.

At the height of his fame in the Seventies, he outraged the Vatican by performing a sketch in which he played The Pope, dancing a striptease with a group of cardinals down the steps of St Peter’s.

In the chaos which followed, the office was turned upside down. This shocking image was published online last night by France’s Le Monde newspaper.
