According to Bloomberg, the number of participants on food stamps reached all-time highs during the Obama administration. Nearly 46 million Americans, which is roughly one-seventh of the entire US population, were on food stamps last October.
Even though eligibility rules remained unchanged during the recession, annual spending for the program, administered by states with federal dollars, more than doubled in five years to a record $76.1 billion in 2013.
In 2008, the year before Obama took over the Presidency, there were 28 million Americans on food stamps and it was costing the country $37.6 billion. In 2015 under Obama, the number of individuals had increased to 46 million Americans with a total cost of $74.0 billion.
Every year of Obama’s presidency the number of people and the cost to taxpayers for food stamps was higher than any year prior to the Obama years. Like all of the other social programs administered by the federal government, there have been more people on food stamps at higher costs under Obama than at any other time in history.
On May 31, 2014 President Obama announced that he transferred five Guantanamo Bay detainees to Qatar in exchange for the release of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl who was held by the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Breitbart provided the following information about the Taliban 5 in December of 2015 –
The Taliban Five – Mohammad Fazl, Mohammed Nabi, Abdul Haq Wasiq, Mullah Norullah Nori, and Khairullah Khairkhwa – were freed from Guantánamo in exchange for Bergdahl.
Mohammed Fazl is one of the first freed Guantanamo detainees to be retained from Afghanistan, accused by the UN of committing war crimes, and suspected of taking part in the slaughter of thousands of Shiite Muslims.
Mohammad Nabi, the former chief of Taliban security, arranged cooperative offenses with Al Qaeda, according to declassified files.
Abdul Haq Wasiq, a deputy to the deceased Taliban chief, Mullah Omar, was one of the top intelligence officials for the jihadi leader. He arranged training with top Al Qaeda operatives.
Mullah Norullah Nori is a senior Taliban commander who is also wanted by the UN for war crimes, and also took part in the suspected mass killing campaign against Shiites.
Khairullah Khairkhwa, a Taliban commander, has ties to the Ayatollah’s regime in Tehran. He was reportedly trusted by Taliban chief Mullah Omar to negotiate ties with Iran.
Breitbart also noted more than a year ago that a House of Representatives report stated that at “least three of the five Taliban leaders… have tried to plug back into their old terror network” and there were indications then that Qatar was eager to have the Taliban Five depart their country. Breitbart also noted that, “If the Taliban Five leave (or have already left) Qatar, there is virtually no measure in place to track the former Guantanamo detainees, or prevent them from re-emerging on the battlefield.”
The Government Accountability Office concluded that the Obama Administration broke the law in the Bergdahl swap because Obama failed to notify Congressional Committees at least 30 days in advance of the deal.
In an interview on the O’Reilly Factor shortly after the terrorist exchange, Lt. Colonel Tony Schaffer added that in addition to the Taliban 5, Obama paid $5 Billion in the exchange for Bergdahl.
Today the whereabouts of the Taliban 5 are unknown.
The Independent reported that Bana Alabed, the seven-year-old girl who has been tweeting from Aleppo, was evacuated to safety. The New York Times even headlined the little girl with Turkey’s President, stating “Erdogan Embraces Bana al-Abed, Who Brought Child’s View of Aleppo to Twitter”.
What Western media is not telling you is that the girl, who is only 7, but somehow knows how to tweet, was evacuated from Aleppo by ISIS killers. The man in the tweet above, who is responsible for Bana’s evacutation from Allepo is the same man who is in a video from earlier in July who was with a group of men who cut off the head of a 12 year old boy.
Instead of celebrating America’s historic progress after voters elected its first black President in 2008, Obama chose to criticize the country and ignited race riots the country had not seen in 40 years since the 1960’s.
When a white police officer shot and killed black robber Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri after Brown had robbed a store, assaulted the store owner, assaulted the policeman and resisted arrest, Obama stood behind the criminal Brown. He even sent three White House representatives to Brown’s funeral.
All the evidence showed that Brown attacked the policeman multiple times shortly after Brown robbed a local convenience store and assaulted the store manager. But Obama did not wait for the jury to reach a verdict and instead he reached his own and promoted a race war.
Eventually, the policeman was acquitted with many of the key witnesses in the acquittal being black, but his life has never been the same and Ferguson has never been the same.
When the innocent verdict was announced, gangs of hoodlums invaded Ferguson and burnt the city down led by Michael Brown’s mother and step father urging the mob to – “Burn this b*tch down.” And they did. More than 20 businesses were set on fire. Obama did nothing to stop the madness. None of this mattered to Barack Obama. Instead Obama invited the mob leaders from the Ferguson riots to the White House.
WikiLeaks later released emails showing that Democratic Leader George Soros spent $33 million bankrolling the Ferguson rioters. The people of Ferguson saw their property values plummet by 50% after the riots, but this is of little concern to Liberals Soros and Obama as they moved on to other cities and riots.
Black Lives Matters was created in Ferguson. Their efforts have led to 11 police officers shot dead and another 9 severely wounded since the Ferguson riots.
Paul Joseph Watson shares that Black Lives Matter completely betrayed the example set by Martin Luther King.
The Obama’s released their 2016 Christmas message to the American people and thank God it was their last one. Michelle Obama starts off by saying
And given how our first Christmas weekly address went, I realized that Barack needed all the help he could get!
Many of us realized this long before the community organizer as ever elected. Now in the last Obama Christmas message, the President ends his eight years in office with a Christmas message full of more Obama lies like we’ve used to receiving since before he was ever elected President –
Together we fought our way back from the worst recession in 80 years and got unemployment to a nine year low. We secured health insurance for another 20 million Americans and new protections for folks who already had insurance. We made America more respected around the world. Took on the mantle for leadership in the fight to protect this planet for our kids and much, much more. By so many measures our country is stronger and more prosperous than it was when we first got here.
Obama’s health insurance program is a mess with year after year of grossly increasing premiums for Americans everywhere. Young people have to pay huge Obamacare premiums or get hit with large tax penalties for not buying insurance. It was not what it was promised and insurance companies are dropping out due to solvency concerns.
America is less respected worldwide due to Obama being blamed for the mess in the Middle East in Libya, Syria and Iraq. Obama’s actions created ISIS and millions have been murdered, raped, beheaded or misplaced during the Obama years while he did nothing to help. Instead Obama gave billions to Iran and turned his back on Israel.
A video of the message is below if you can stomach it.
Thank God we will have a real American taking over the Presidency in less than a month.
On another seven of these days the Dow landed at its second highest close ever up to that date!
For nearly a third of the closings since the election, the Dow has reached new highs. For more than 80% of the closing bells the Dow has either reached a new high or its second highest closing to date. For only five days since the election, the Dow has not reached one of these two milestones. The DOW has increased 9% during this time.
This Trump Rally is Historical!
We downloaded all daily closing amounts of the Dow Jones Industrial Average since January 5th of 1905 – more than 110 years of daily Dow closing data to compare the ‘Trump Rally’ to other rallies in the history of the Dow.
From an updated analysis of this data, there are only 8 times in the history of the Dow where the Dow set new closing highs for 17 days or more in a 29 day period. The last time this occurred was nearly 20 years ago in 1998.
The DOW has never in its history reached the number of closing bell highs after an election. (The rally in 1928 started in October before the election.) Under Obama’s Presidency new Dow Jones daily closing highs were sparse. The last daily closing high before the November 8th election was in August. This is why the ‘Trump Rally’ is such an anomaly.
