When Joe Biden isn’t hiding in his basement or making gaffes on the campaign trail, he is bragging about the “scandal-free” Obama White House.
He tells his audiences, “if I am your next president, I am going to build on the squeaky clean transparent environment we had in the Obama Biden White House.”
We know Joe has a tendency to be forgetful, but this denial of reality borders on complete delusion.
Let’s just take a moment to remember a FEW of the disruptions to the Barack and Joe’s “transparent environment.”
1. IRS targeting scandal
In 2013, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) was caught selecting conservative political for additional intensive scrutiny. This led to wide condemnation of the agency and triggered several investigations, including an FBI criminal probe.
2. NSA Surveillance/Snowden leaks
Edward Snowden copied and leaked highly classified information from the National Security Agency (NSA) in 2013 that revealed the government is tracking and keeping the data for basically everything you do on your phone. And the FISA courts are a joke.
3. Fast and furious
Attorney Eric Holder and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) ran a series of sting operations that “purposely allowed licensed firearms dealers to sell weapons to illegal straw buyers, hoping to track the guns to Mexican drug cartel leaders and arrest them”. These operations lead to increased violence and death of Mexicans and Americans, including United States Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
In 2012, 4 Americans died in a coordinated attack against two United States government facilities in Benghazi, Libya. Hillary Clinton refused their calls for aid for 12 hours. President Obama’s administration blamed the attack on a Youtube video.
5. Killing Americans (w/ out trial) with drones
In 2010, Obama directed the CIA to assassinate an American citizen in Yemen, Anwar al-Awlaki, despite the fact that he had never been charged with (let alone convicted of) any crime.
6. Hillary’s secret server
While serving as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton used a private email server for official public communications rather than using official State Department email accounts maintained on secure federal servers. No shock: the emails were hacked and leaked.
7. The Iran Deal
The Obama administration secretly arranged a plane delivery of $400 million in unmarked cash on the same day Iran formally implemented the Iran deal.
In 2009 the Obama administration gave $535 million in taxpayer cash to Solyndra in exchange for 4,000 jobs. Those jobs never came. Instead, the company gave a bunch of money to the Obama campaign and went bankrupt.
9. Spying on journalists (Rosengate)
Obama’s Justice Department spied on Fox News reporter James Rosen in 2010, collecting his telephone records, tracking his movements in and out of the State Department, and seizing his personal emails because they didn’t like what he wrote about them.
How unstable do you have to be to think an administration that faced THESE scandals can get away with calling itself “squeaky clean”?
Major media outlets seem to be burying these stories along with Hunter Biden’s laptop in a desperate attempt to help Joe win the presidency.
Good luck – most Americans have a longer memory than Joe Biden.
