Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino told Breitbart News that President Barack Obama was lying when he blamed the cancellation of White House tours on his former agency. “The president’s absolutely not telling the truth when he said the Secret Service made that decision to cut [the White House] tours,” Bongino said. “That’s the core of it: he is not telling the truth.” In an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Obama said the decision, made as a part of sequestration, was not one “that went up to the White House.”
In my opinion, Obama only knows two things, lie about everything and blame others for anything that goes wrong. He probably lies when he talks to himself. It is so ingrained in his psyche that he can do no other.
Hillary says I did not know of Benghazi. Holder says I had no knowledge of Fast and Furious. Obama says I had no knowledge of Fast and Furious. I did not know illegal immigrants were being relesed. I was not aware of security requests from Benghazi. He did not even know who Ben Ghazi was. Obama says the cancellation of WH tours did not reach the president. Obama says he quit smoking. Obama says he is not a dictator. Michelle Obama is meerly a "beard" to cover for Obama´s rampant gayness.
Only one of these statements is true.
If we take the senate in 2014 will we have enough clout to impeach this lying tool?
His transparent lies make him look clueless, out of the loop, and utterly impotent. He didn´t even know the tours were canceled. He wasn´t consulted. He cannot do anything about it without a lot of consulting and researching and meeting with Federal bureaucrats who are the ones who really run the government.
There is a childish quality to his dishonesty as well as a child´s naivete in his apparent belief that his lies are actually fooling someone. He has undoubtedly told whoppers like this all his life and gotten away with them. It remains to be seen whether he will continue to get away with them or whether the American media will wake from its long slumber and come at last to the defense of the republic by exposing this profoundly dishonest man for what he is.
I would believe that the Secret Service advised George Bush to remain in the classroom during the early dark moments of 9/11. They probably thought it wise to fly him all over the country as well, both for which he was mocked relentlessly. But I´m not buying they can´t still protect Obama from tourists because an agent or two was given a day off once a month. Just take away Val Jar´s retinue, problem solved.
Dan Bongino could have won the election except for some very rich guy using his own money running as an independent and pulling votes away from Bongino. Also, the GOP didn´t do very much in the way of giving him money.
I could care less about WH tours and golf outings. It is a waste of time and there is nothing we can do about it. It is theater. I am concerned that my Representative: Rene Ellmers of NC who was elected because of her anti Obamacare stand just voted to fund Obamacare through 2013, along with a majority of Republicans. This treason and lying has become commonplace by Republicans. All talk and then surrender when the vote comes up. Congratulations for the Senate Republicans who voted against funding Obamacare. I don´t expect much from Obama, but I do from the House of Representatives. Our freedom is not only being destroyed by Obama, but by the lying scoundrels in the House. The Republican majority house. Obama now is no worse than the Republicans who refuse to stand! And thus are killing America. Not only is Obama not telling the truth, Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy and all are lying as well, except about more weightier issues.
ANY Republican in my State or district that supported this lying man wrongfully occupying the white House will NOT get my vote even for dogcatcher...if I cannot get him out of office I will help with ALL I can do to vote out his supporters... all Republicans that said they were ´against´ just to get elected and then voted with him are my main target...they will not get by quietly...
YOu know, Postor #9 and the others who referenced how easily Obama lies. It makes total sense Obama is a closet gay. He has practiced his entire life covering up that lie. What he is doing now is nothing compared to that except that he has a lot more enablers to help in burying the truth. And that includes burying the witnesses. :-(
Obama is imploding. He is on his heels. He gambled that the Republicans would never allow a reduction in military spending and he lost. Our side should be relentless in mocking him over his Chicken Little lies and stupid sequester cuts. 2014 depends on it. Obama´s strategy was that no one would ever know what whoppers he was telling because the Republicans´ M.O. was to cave at the last minute. Sorry B.O., no mo.
I respect all the prior posts and the reasoning behind them. But the ultimate truth is why BO lies, gets away with it and no one holds him accountable is because he is black and no one wants to be labeled a racist.
BO and MO have the ultimate trump card and they will hold that card way beyond their presidency.
Anytime or any one criticizes them the race card is played. The fact that he is incompetent, clueless and not very intelligent is grossly ignored by most people. I harbor that even B. Clinton privately laughs at him, but at the same time applauds him for the most major fraud conducted on the US and the world.
23, Rene Ellmers is not our Rep. (we´re stuck with David Price), but did you notice that during the last term, whenever Boehner was giving a statement, she was right there. Since the election she has not been, in fact have not seen her.
She is a former nurse and should be ashamed to vote for anything having to do with Obamacare. She can be replaced, as far as I´m concerned.
A security guard stopping two teenage girls to question them about shoplifting from a midtown Victoria’s Secret Thursday made a horrifying discovery — one of the teens was carrying a dead fetus in a plastic bag, police sources said. The guard at the lingerie store grabbed the two 17-year-olds inside the Broadway store near Sixth Ave. at about 1:10 p.m., sources said. When they looked through their belongings, they found what appeared to be a dead newborn male in a black plastic bag, according to a police source. The baby was swaddled in some clothes, the source said. One of
Now that his money-laundering conviction has been overturned, former former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) joined CNN’s Brooke Baldwin Thursday afternoon to weigh in on the big news of the day, offering praise for fellow Texan Sen. Ted Cruz and denouncing President Obama as “arrogant-in-chief.” DeLay began by admitting Republicans “did lose” the fight over the budget and the debt ceiling. Echoing the words of House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), he said, “They put up a good fight. I appreciate everyone that voted against the deal yesterday and stood up and fought. Unfortunately, they didn’t have enough votes to carry
A visibly frustrated President Obama delivered a blunt message to Republicans with whom he had feuded over the government shutdown and the debt ceiling over the past month on Tuesday: Elections matter. I won; you lost. Deal with it. That’s a paraphrase — obviously. Here’s what Obama actually said: “You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president? Then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election. Push to change it. But don’t break it. Don’t break what our predecessors spent over two centuries building. That’s not being faithful to what this country’s about.” “Go out
This morning, His Majesty magnanimously took some time out of his busy day to perform his most important task as King of America: Condemning the common rabble who resist his will. I’ll skip past the first few minutes of his lies, blamethrowing, and other nonsense. Here’s where he goes after me and mine: “And now that the government is reopened, and this threat to our economy is removed, all of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists, and the bloggers, and the talking heads on radio, and the professional activists who profit from conflict, and focus on what the
Approximately 15,000 federal employees in Massachusetts headed back to work this morning after the 16-day partial government shutdown came to an end — at least for now. “Hopefully, we won’t be doing this again in January,” said John Buckley, regional vice president of Boston-based Local 2264 of the American Federation of Government Employees. The state’s federal employees were notified electronically and by phone to be back at their posts this morning An e-mail blast last night from Sylvia Mathews Burwell, director of the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, read, “Now that the bill has passed the United States Senate
On Thursday morning, President Obama delivered a speech applauding Democrats and “responsible Republicans” for reopening the Government and giving America the opportunity to pay its bills and avoid the first default in two hundred years. Ignoring the dizzying increase in the national debt to almost $17 trillion and the inevitability of further huge increases with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, Obama insists our deficits have been cut in half. Obama provided inconsistent rhetoric while acknowledging Democrats and Republicans often share different strategies and ideas, claiming that this is a wonderful aspect of Democracy. But Obama cautions Americans from
Sen. John McCain’s feud with Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, doesn´t look like it’s going to slow down any time any soon. During an appearance on NBC’s Nightly News, anchor Brian Williams asked McCain, R-Ariz., a question about relations in the Senate and cited a comment Gohmert made in which he accused McCain of supporting al-Qaida. “Sometimes those -- comments like that are made out of malice, but if someone has no intelligence I don’t view it as being a malicious statement,” McCain responded.? During a speech at the Values Voter Summit in Washington last week, Gohmert was critical of McCain
Republicans never expected to get a fair shake in the Big Three networks´ coverage of the 16-day government shutdown, but the final tally of stories blaming the GOP is stunning: 41 stories blamed Republicans and zero blamed Democrats. Nightly, 20 million Americans heard “a version of the shutdown story that could easily have emanated from Barack Obama´s own White House,” said the new report from the Media Research Center. The report, provided to Secrets, found that a total of 41 stories blamed Republicans for the shutdown. None blamed the Democrats. Another 17 blamed both sides. In addition, those interviewed by
The 16-day government shutdown is officially over, and Vice President Joe Biden was busy making the rounds Wednesday morning, welcoming federal workers back to work. And he did it with food, the ultimate peace offering/good gesture/way to fix almost anything. Biden stopped at the Environmental Protection Agency with multiple containers of muffins. And not just any muffins ... they´re mini. In the photo above, Biden is seen carrying the muffins while excited onlookers take pictures, clap and cheer. The woman in the red suit looks like she may be the happiest woman alive and is probably hoping those muffins are
President Obama’s spokesman defended his boss on Thursday for chiding Republicans over the debt ceiling and shutdown fight. White House press secretary Jay Carney said many people, including Republicans, think the GOP did the wrong thing by pressing for the defunding of ObamaCare in the fight over funding the government. He said he had no doubt some Republicans “think they did the right thing” and take issue with Obama’s criticism. “But I think many, many others agree that we need to work together to find common ground,” Carney said at his daily briefing. Carney addded that Republican leaders themselves had
Standing loyally by their master´s side, tirelessly at work in the fields, or bounding through rivers with all the energy of a puppy, these images capture the very best of Man´s Best Friend. The series of pictures were picked from almost 8,000 submissions for the Kennel Club’s annual Dog Photographer of the Year Competition. Roger Sjolstad from Norway has been selected as the overall winner of the competition with his dynamic image of a young girl and a Great Dane running through water, which was the winner of the ‘Man’s Best Friend’ category. Speaking about winning the biggest canine photography
As the federal government reopened Thursday, a stern President Obama said Americans are “completely fed up with Washington,” but said the nation would bounce back. “These last few weeks have inflicted completely unnecessary damage on our economy,” Mr. Obama said at the White House as the 16-day shutdown ended. “The American people’s frustration with what goes on in this town has never been higher. How business is done in this town has to change.” The president urged Congress to work on a “balanced” budget as a House-Senate conference committee began its work Thursday. He decried Republicans’ “brinkmanship” that he blamed
A New York Times investigative article based on two dozen interviews with industry insiders and confidential Obama Administration documents reveals that the catastrophic $500 million Obamacare rollout "has deeply embarrassed the White House" and has the technology companies involved "publicly distancing themselves" from the Obamacare fiasco. "These are not glitches. The extent of the problems is pretty enormous," an insurance executive who participated in Obamacare conference calls told the Times. "At the end of our calls, people say, ´It´s awful, just awful.´" The Times says those closest to the three-and-a-half year-long building of Obamacare, like embattled Health and Human Services
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday admitted defeat in the fiscal debate that resulted in the government shutdown and pushed the nation toward a default, saying it was a "good fight." (Snip) But blocking the bipartisan agreement reached today by the members of the Senate will not be a tactic for us," he added. "In addition to the risk of default, doing so would open the door for the Democratic majority in Washington to raise taxes again on the American people and undo the spending caps in the 2011 Budget Control Act without replacing them with better spending cuts."
In a bookend of sorts to his 21-hour “filibuster” against the Affordable Care Act, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke for just under 10 minutes Wednesday evening in opposition to an imminent Senate vote that would reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling to avoid default. Cruz denounced the Senate deal as “terrible,” saying it will do nothing to help the “millions of Americans who are hurting because of Obamacare.” Speaking for the “American people,” Cruz said the Senate deal “embodies everything that frustrates” them about the “Washington establishment.” The majority of the speech centered around Cruz’s opposition to the health
On CNN’s “New Day” on Wednesday, Robert Redford said congressional criticism of President Barack Obama is racially motivated. “Don’t get me started on that,” the left-leaning actor said when asked about political gridlock in Washington, D.C. “What I wanted to see [in Obama´s second term] is turning out to be a bit of a dream that never came true. I don’t envy [Obama´s] position. I think he is a good man. I think he is an intelligent man, a compassionate man who can’t function in that environment. That environment — it is so decrepit. It is so paralyzed. And the worst
Rep. Peter King thinks Republicans in the House could have bargained for much more than they´re getting in a pending Senate deal, if only the House had kept the government open in September and focused on negotiations over the federal debt limit. "Instead we look like the crazies," King, a Republican from Long Island, told me this afternoon from Washington. "Shutting down the government, throwing barricades against the White House, and having Ted Cruz reading Dr. Seuss, this is like the theater of the absurd. Except that it´s serious."
The US was scrambling to avert a potentially disastrous breach of its debt ceiling on Wednesday morning, after Republican attempts to table a deal collapsed in disarray overnight, leaving the prospects for a last-minute deal on a knife-edge. America´s divided political system now has just 24 hours to find a compromise to the budget stand-off between the White House and hardline Republicans, with the deadline to extend America´s borrowing limit falling due on Thursday. In a sign of plunging confidence in Washington on Wall Street, Fitch, a leading credit ratings agency announced that the US was now on a "negative watch"
Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) says he hopes the House “will get some adult supervision from the Senate” to achieve a debt ceiling deal. (Snip)King said he would vote for that deal, and blames Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for this fiscal mess. “Ted Cruz has been a total fraud from the start,” King said. “It never could have succeeded. I can’t imagine going into battle knowing you can’t win and continue telling your people you are winning. It’s Never Never Land, parallel universes, whatever you want to call it.” Congress, King added, will be back in the same boat in three to four
It was bad enough when those teabagging Republican terrorists killed the First Lady’s Twitter account. Now they’ve taken her lovely garden hostage! Reuters: In the famous White House kitchen garden, tomatoes are rotting on the vine. Herbs have gone to seed. And the sweet potatoes – a favorite of President Barack Obama – have become worm food. It’s another impact of the government shutdown, one that only the fox and the many squirrels that live on the White House grounds could love… “Due to the shutdown, garden maintenance has been reduced considerably and only being watered as needed,” a White House official confirmed, speaking
The White House set low expectations for the Affordable Care Act´s October 1 debut, so anything remotely competent should have seemed like a success. But three weeks on, the catastrophe that is Healthcare.gov and the 36 insurance exchanges run by the federal government is an insult to the "glitches" President Obama said were inevitable. This isn´t some coding error, or even the Health and Human Service Department´s usual incompetence. The failures that have all but disabled ObamaCare are the result of deliberate political choices, which HHS and the White House are compounding with secrecy and stonewalling. *** The health industry and low-level Administration
The deal reached by Congress on Wednesday to end the government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling averts a financial catastrophe but leaves the weakened U.S. economy facing new threats. The agreement will send about 450,000 federal employees back to work and restart paychecks for the 1.3 million employees who stayed on the job during the shutdown. Getting those salaries back in circulation will help economic growth, particularly in the Washington area. More important, the threat of a default on the national debt has been avoided, along with the recession and financial crisis that may have accompanied a failure to
Psst. Anic-Pay! Bloomberg‘s Megan McArdle (who has been on an incredible roll lately**) takes issue with the idea that the Obama administration needn’t panic about Obamacare, as long as it can get its glitch-plagued health care exchanges up and running by the end of the year. Wrong, she suggests. It’s time to panic. Now. Why? Because the exchanges are the way to sign up young, healthy people and prevent the fabled “death spiral,” in which only older, sicker people sign up for insurance, causing rates to rise and healthier people to drop out, causing rates to rise even more, etc.
Grover Norquist isn’t happy with the Defunders. The Americans for Tax Reform president told reporters today that they have a lot of apologies to make and bridges to re-build. “It’d be a good idea if they stopped referring to other Republicans as Hitler appeasers because they opposed the strategy they put forward which failed,” Norquist says. “I think if you make a mistake as big as what they did, you owe your fellow senators and congressmen a big apology — and your constituents, as well, because nothing they did advanced the cause of repealing or dismantling Obamacare.” Norquist refrained from naming the
