The 9 Biggest Lies Obama Told During The SOTU Address

As a Baby Boomer, Veteran & Patriotic American~ I really cannot believe what’s actually happening in our country. The federal government is out of control and most Americans are at a loss as to what we, as Americans can do about it. It seems like our elected officials (99% of them) care more about being either politically correct, keeping their jobs no matter the cost, instead of listening to what their constituents want and acting accordingly. The higher up in the “political food chain” we look, the worse it gets. They all appear to just want to burn our Constitution & turn our country into “One Nation Under Socialism”.

1. Obama claims that “corporate profits and stock prices have rarely been higher, and those at the top have never done better. But… upward mobility has stalled.” This has been refuted most recently by Harvard Economics Professor Raj Chetty who recently released a paper showing that upward mobility in America hasn’t changed since the 1970’s.  This means that in the past 40+ years the chances of moving out of poverty in America have remained unchanged.

2. The President continued beating his ‘war on women’ drum last night, using his often cited statistic about women making only $.77 for every dollar a man makes in America.  The problem is this statistic is completely bogus.  It isn’t just conservatives who are saying this, even the staunch liberals at Slate say the President’s figures simply don’t add up.  After all, it’s just arithmetic.

3. While the President made a big show out of…

The 9 Biggest Lies Obama Told During The SOTU Address

1. Obama claims that “corporate profits and stock prices have rarely been higher, and those at the top have never done better. But… upward mobility has stalled.” This has been refuted most recently by Harvard Economics Professor Raj Chetty who recently released a paper showing that upward mobility in America hasn’t changed since the 1970’s.  This means that in the past 40+ years the chances of moving out of poverty in America have remained unchanged.

2. The President continued beating his ‘war on women’ drum last night, using his often cited statistic about women making only $.77 for every dollar a man makes in America.  The problem is this statistic is completely bogus.  It isn’t just conservatives who are saying this, even the staunch liberals at Slate say the President’s figures simply don’t add up.  After all, it’s just arithmetic.

3. While the President made a big show out of the minimum wage he failed to tell the American people, that the minimum wage actually only affects less than 1% of the work force.  That’s right, less than 1% of the American workforce earns the federal minimum wage, the rest work at a level above the minimum.  While Obama might want to force this issue for political gain, he is lying when he says that this is a huge problem for the American public.

4. Obama claimed “more than 9 million Americans have signed up” for coverage under ObamaCare during his speech last night, a number that has been widely challenged in the aftermath of the speech. Observers have pointed out that almost 5 million Americans have lost coverage because of the mandates in ObamaCare. Others have questioned the number of Medicaid beneficiaries who are newly eligible due to the program’s expansion under the law. Obama’s 9 million figure includes a claim that 3.9 million learned they are eligible for Medicaid, but he admits some of those counted are actually renewals.

5. President Obama claimed to have added 8 million jobs to the U.S. economy last night to loud applause.  The problem is, that claim only rings true if you ignore all of the jobs the economy has lost under Obama’s watch.  The true number is well less than half of his claim.  The President will continue to ignore this truth, however, because it goes to show that the economic recovery under his tenure has been the slowest since World War II.

6. While Obama took credit for the rising domestic energy production he is lying by omission when he fails to tell the American people this energy boom has occurred in spite of his policies, not because of them.  Much of the increase in domestic energy production has happened on private land, and despite the growing number of regulations that the Obama administration has heaped on the industry.

7.  The Affordable Care Act, ObamaCare to most, is on its face a lie.  While the President painted a rosy picture of his namesake last night, he glossed over the fact that it is not affordable after all.  While monthly bills for health insurance have gone down for some (and risen for others), that is only one side of the equation.  What Obama isn’t telling the public is that deductibles are going up under ObamaCare, sometimes doubling or even tripling.

8. While carbon emissions are not at the top of For America’s policy priorities, holding President Obama accountable for his claims is what we are all about. Last night, the President claimed the U.S. “reduced our total carbon pollution more than any other nation on Earth.” The facts show many nations reduced their emissions by a greater percentage than the U.S. has in recent years.

 9. On Iran, President Obama told the American people a flat-out lie last night.  The President said that Iran is now eliminating its stockpile of highly enriched uranium.  While evidence exists that the Iranians, under the recent international agreement, have begun oxidizing their highly enriched uranium, a process that makes the uranium unusable. Obama failed to say this process is completely reversible, and thus, Iran has not eliminated their stockpiles at all.

Obama’s Blame Game

Cartoon - Obama blame gameThe blame game is Obama’s ‘claim to fame’ as far as I’m concerned. He loves taking credit for successes (mostly those of others) while minimizing his own dismal failures. Politicians all tend to relish an opportunity to pass on blame for a catastrophic failure to a rival but president Obama takes the cake!

Some psychiatric conditions are closely linked with the blame game. People with social disorders, for example, are usually tempted to blame other people for their failures or struggles with society, and the blame game is especially closely linked with bipolar-disorder. Members of Obama’s cabinet and those that must deal with this president on a daily basis should be offered some kind of psychiatric care (under Obamacare, of course) to help them deal with the Blame Game King of America and his other issues, like smoking, lying & laziness~ which are also very common with the mentally ill.

President Obama has passed the buck to others – mainly George W. Bush –  so many times that I’ve lost count~ problems that characterize his presidency, suggesting time and again that his own policies are not to blame for his difficulties and that he is simply doing the best that can be done with the cards he was dealt by former President Bush & the Republicans.

Even so, Obama has aggressively staked claims for successes for which Bush shares significant or nearly all responsibility, including increased drilling for oil and natural gas, the end of the Iraq War, and the killing of Osama Bin Laden just to name a few.

Now, Obama has stated publically that “he has a phone and a pen” and that he will use these to by-pass congress and pass any law that he pleases. THAT, my fellow Americans is what a dictator says. And THAT, is another step closer to the “Socialist States of America!”

Indeed, Obama will have no one to blame except himself if ignores his duty as president under our constitution and his plan actually backfires on him. However; who do you think the American people will blame if he is successful in stomping on the USS Constitution and throwing the laws of the land under the “bus”? Our founders & countrymen (and women) fought a revolution against England for the freedoms that today, many Americans 553574_2880383658454_1525933473_36716978_1366279504_ntake for granted.   Indeed, millions of Americans have died since our founding in wars of freedom both here in America and throughout the world. Please~ tell me that we will not dishonor the memories of our fallen soldiers, sailors & airmen throughout the years by allowing Obama & his socialistic agenda to ignore American Laws & Values. Please~ tell me that if we keep silent and allow him to use his “phone & his pen” in lieu of obeying the laws of the United States of America~ that we have no one to blame but ourselves!
