Congressional Report Lists 36 Pages of Obama's Crimes

Ben Johnson, Floyd Reports

Congressman Darrell Issa has produced a shocking new report detailing the Obama administration’s extensive use of taxpayer-funded propaganda, which he says breaks federal law. The report created for the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform details how the former Alinskyite community organizer has channeled the resources of the federal government — that is, your money — to create “a sophisticated propaganda and lobbying campaign” made up of “inappropriate and sometimes unlawful public relations and propaganda initiatives.” The highlights include:

  • Using federal arts grants to spread Obama’s legislative message. Last August 10, administration officials held a conference call with National Endowment of the Arts grant recipients. Buffy Wicks, a college radical who worked in Valerie Jarrett‘s Office of Public Engagement, told the invitees,  “we’re going to come at you with some specific ‘asks’ here,” specifically supporting Obama’s initiatives on health care, the environment, or energy. She suggested, “We wanted folks to connect…with federal agencies, with labor unions, progressive groups, face groups [faith groups, perhaps?], women’s groups, you name it.”  Within 48 hours, no fewer than 21 arts organizations released a statement endorsing ObamaCare.
  • The Dept. of Health and Human Services paid MIT economist Jonathan Gruber nearly $400,000 for various jobs. He did not disclose his employment by HHS while writing a string of op-eds, nor while testifying before the Senate in favor of, ObamaCare.
  • The Justice Dept. hired Tracy Russo, the former blogger for John Edwards, to comment on internet articles or bulletin board messages that criticized Barack Obama and his agenda. She did this anonymously or used a pen name.
  • A Dept. of Education officer used the White House email to send his colleagues eight bullet points to “communicate the merits of the President’s proposal with your members and their audiences.”
  • Andy Griffith starred in a Medicare “update” that doubled as a commercial for Obama’s health care legislation. Not only is the PSAl propaganda, it is erroneous. A writer with the nonpartisan FactCheck.org remarked Griffith’s scripted “promise that ‘benefits will remain the same’ is just as fictional as the town of Mayberry.”
  • The White House routinely drove traffic to websites that lobby for Obama’s legislation.

You can read the full report here.

Issa cites three separate federal statutes violated by the Obama administration and has called for a Government Accountability Office (GAO) to launch an investigation. If violations of the law are found, impeachment could follow.

It’s not bad enough the president is a megalomaniac who skirts the law to foist his far-Left agenda on the American people — he also uses your money to do it.

    WHY PRINT STUFF LIKE THIS, '' IMPEACHMENT'', NOT ONE IN CONGRESS OR ANY ONE WILL DO A DAMN THING?

  • Ex-Army

    What a joke! The Obama administration can't even come close to the outrageous propagandizing the Bush/Cheney administrations indulged in, led by the likes of Karl Rove. If this is the best the right can do for impeachment charges, they need to go back to the drawing board. Here's a suggestion – impeach President Obama for continuing Bush non-constitutional policies, like FISA violations, military commissions, privatizing the military, etc.

    He should be inpeached and then imprisoned!

    Obama and his staff are crooks who should be empeached as soon as possible. They are all liers and destroying the fabric of American. Obama is a communist dictator who will soon try to control each person in this country. Congress should immediately get rid of this black and never allow him entrance in the the White House.

  • Diane Lamm

    Rep. Issa should keep going until this president is removed from office. His crimes should be made known to all Americans. He has no interest in America except to use the freedoms we have here to change our country into his own personal agenda for radical government and no freedom for the people.

  • Darrell Issa is America's hero. I can't wait til he takes over. See you in November.

  • Me too Carol…but they're listening now.

  • Gone Fishin

    I would put money on the fact that there has been corruption in every administration but this one takes it to the outer limits. I feel like I am in the Twilight Zone.

    Carol -I'm with you. I did manage to swing one vote away from BO, but the press was in love and we didn't stand a chance w/ McCain. We need some strong leadership that will "drain the swamp" of all the Rangel's regardless of the party.

    ExArmy – you are anything but military. God help us all if you are!!

  • jondar2

    It costs taxpayers over $68,000 per hour to fly that AF1 campaign bus around the country during Obama's incessant lobbying/campaigning. Two planes to Spain at 6 hrs each, round trip cost to taxpayers $700,000 flight cost for that little royal vacation, besides the hundreds of thousands for other expenses.
    Today Obama was in Ohio, Wisconsin, and Seatle Washington. That's about another 6 hours flight time, a minor $408,000 and he still has to get back to DC- another $400,000 or so.
    But what the hell, American is barely broke, well maybe really broke, so what's a few more millions to these Chicago "organizers"??

  • hopeful

    Boy! If we don't have a change in leadership in the House and Senate, come November chop the Big Head off Obama in 2012, then we can bend over and kiss our rears goodbye.

    Its time to stand together and clean house.

  • angelkitties13

    Since abama is Not born in America makes him illegal, so he is holding the office of president illegally. Impeaching him would be saying he is holdin the office of president legally. He should be arrested and put in jail for fraud. along with all his other crimal acts.—I am a dem but did not vote for abama as i look at him as being evil, a mulsum , a crook, hates America. and has No Morals. He is the worse thing that has happened to this Great Country. REMEMBER TO VOTE IN NOV. A START ON GETTIN THIS NUMNUT ILLEGAL MULSUM OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE,AND START GETTIN OUR GREAT COUNTRY BACK AND HOPEFULLY WITH MORALS AGAIN,

  • SUSANM

    WE OUHT TO SEND ALL OF THEM BACK TO KENYA. THE COUNTRY WOOD HAVE BEEN BETTER IF WE HAD NEVER BROUHT THEM HEAR TWO HUNDRED YEARS AGO.

  • Galen

    Obama is a fraud and liar!!! Always has been and always will be!!!! Until we have senators and congress men and women who have a backbone to impeach him, any proof of wrong doing will be ignored or censored by the major media outlets. Only FOX presents the truth and on issues that we Americans should be getting info on, instead of painting the president and everyday events with a rosy picture. Simply put, Obama is a TWIT!!!

  • dkbokc

    We all know the truth about obama,,, seems like someone out there could find the legit info to get him booted out. He is not legal or else he would have produced the documents to prove he is, somebody out there needs to find them, that person would be the hero of the day, and the person with the most clout in this country! If he is proven to be a fraud, then EVERY THING he has done is undone automatically! He and every single member of his staff and all dems need to be tried for treason then imprisoned.

  • sheldon

    Gov. Balagovich(sic) should not be convicted of actions which are not criminal in the pattern of corrupt Chicago politics. The white hosue scumbag obama is the one who should be tried and convicted for his crimes as detailed in the above article.

  • Marianne Silic

    A man who has nothing to hide, hides nothing. This man was elected as an unknown quantity and he still is, except that all we know about him now is bad. All we know about him is he has diarrhea of the mouth, he never shuts up or considers he should save his breath because no one believes a word he says. He, admittedly, is still campaigning and he's been in office 18 months. No other president has had to run all over the country trying to convince it that he deserves to be in office, but he has a lot of convincing to do. He has been in this country so little he can't even gauge how the people think about what he's doing. If he knew he would slink out the back door.

    • Elizabeth

      Glad you finally got through on this forum, Marianne.
      I can certainly envision the sight of Obama
      slinking ot the back door, but in reality
      he will be handcuffed, tried for treason,
      and even he will not be able to threaten
      and bribe the judges.

      After that? It's been a long time since
      we have had a hanging in America.

    I was raised to respect and accept all, regardless of race or creed. I now live in a diverse neighborhood that is the art center of my city. Twice, black kids have smashed our car windows. I had a rock thrown at a window i was sitting by one evening enjoying the breeze, when I had the audacity to look at the young black kid who was walking up my street cursing at the top of his lungs….just to hear his own voice. My belief is that after slavery became illegal, all blacks should have been returned to their home land, Africa.

    • Elizabeth

      In many respects, I agree with you, although, you
      have to admit that there are some good citizens
      who have somehow risen above their genetic
      tendencies.

      Some are singers, some are in the
      military, and some civilians are in high level
      professions; they live in good, decent neighborhoods
      and raise their children accordingly.

      But, too many are just one drum beat from the
      jungle.

      Look at the mother who smothered her
      2 toddlers and put them in car seats and
      rolled the car into the river in N.C. just a few
      days ago. That, true, is what a Caucasian
      woman did about 18 years ago.

      If you look closely at the crime stories,
      you find that a HUGE percentage is
      Hispanic and Afro-American.

      That is not being racist.. it is telling it like it is.

      I have had good friends that were black.
      I have had good friends that were Hispanic.

      But out there in the rest of the world, in
      the teeming cities, it is a cesspool of
      uneducated, uncivilized, and un-churched
      white, black and Hispanic.. plus throw
      in a few Orientals. (they commit
      horrendous crimes, too.)

      Bottom line, all of the criminals and want-to-
      be criminals should be flown to another planet.

      That is what I like about Sci Fi TV…. this COULD
      BE accomplished in a sci fi movie. Voila`
      ….. Utopia.

      • Cathy Christian

        This is a joke, right Elizabeth? This must be a parody. "Some of my best friends. . ." "I'm no racist." "Viola." I suspect this has been written by an Obama partisan to mock the stupidity of the racists out there in the heartland. It's very funny Elizabeth!

      • Cathy Christian

        This is a parody. Right Elizabeth? It's a joke isn't it? "Some of my best friends. . ." "I'm not being a racist." This has to be some garbage that a pro-Obama partisan has created to make the anti-Obama crowd look like imbeciles.

  • Marianne Silic

    A man who has nothing to hide, hides nothing.
    It is very unfitting for a president to play fast and loose with something as important as this. He has absolutely no respect for the will of the people or he would have presented the Birth Certificate long ago. His playing childish "cat and mouse" games with all of us shows not only no respect, but no guts to set the whole thing to rest. If he is this childish, who needs a president like this?

    Using that terminology marks you as an English citizen. Are you that scum Piers? If not, you should meet him, you 2 would make quite a pair.

  • Paul

    How about just imprisoned? It would be a whole lot better for every one to follow that path, no personal guards the rest of his life, no $400,000 salary the rest of his life, and every thing he signed is immediately voided.

  • Paul

    Oh and I forgot, no cushy health problem the rest of his life. (no expensive vacations either!!)
