[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Barack Obama put his immense hypocrisy on full display on Monday while speaking to a group of young southeast Asian leaders at the White House. His hypocrisy is nothing new. In fact, he puts it on display quite frequently. However, these two doozies were so rich that they’re worth both being pointed out.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Once again derided one thing that separates America from the rest of the systems of government throughout the world, our First Amendment right to freedom of speech. Even worse, and as is typical of him, he did so in front of individuals from another country. However, this time, rather than making comments insulting to America on foreign soil, he did so at the White House.
To the 75 people gathered for the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative at the White House, Obama said, “As I always point out, democracy is hard. I think many of the things said about me are terribly unfair.”
Democracy is hard? Maybe it is for someone who wants to run a nation built on freedom like a dictatorial tyrant who has stifled speech of both the press and other private citizens who works to rile up Americans into a mob rule mentality, ignoring the fact that America is a republic.
Not only did Obama attack the First Amendment, he also had some hypocritical complaints about fundraising in American politics, despite the fact that Obama himself set fundraising records during his 2012 election campaign. When he broke the $2 billion milestone, he became the largest fundraiser in history, second only to the amount he also raised in 2008.
In 2013, weeks before he was set to be inaugurated into the presidency for a second time, he was assessed one of the largest fines in FEC history. His campaign paid $375 million for violating federal disclosure laws.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]There were 1,300 large donations to Obama’s campaign that totaled $1.9 million. Not only did Obama fail to disclose the sources of these donations, despite the law requiring reporting any donation larger than $1,000 within 20 days of Election Day, he also did not follow the law in dealing with excessive contributions, as detailed by US News.
Obama for America was also fined for “untimely resolution of excessive contributions,” according to the conciliation agreement, FEC says. The campaign accepted more than $1.3 million in contributions that came from donors who had already given $46,000—the maximum allowed by FEC rules. The campaign eventually refunded the excess cash but did not do so within the 60-day window allotted for resolving such cases, FEC said.
In addition to failing to report big donors and excess donations in a timely manner, the Obama campaign incorrectly dated the filings dealing with $85 million in funds, the FEC claims.
Then again, that didn’t stop Obama from complaining about the amount of money spent in American politics with his false ‘woe is me’ attitude, continuing the meme that money in politics, as long as it doesn’t involve his campaign, is ruining America.
He said, “So we have to make sure we are constantly seeing how we improve our democracy. The amounts of money for example that are involved in our elections these days is disturbing because it makes it seem like a few people have a greater influence in the democracy than the many.”
At this stage in Obama’s presidency, one question remains. Which is greater, Obama’s alternate universe that he uses to shield his narcissistic self from his own words of criticism or the stupidity of the useful idiots who voted for him and still continue to defend him?
