Obama’s Deplorable Last Hurrah - Stephen Lendman


Obama: We “reverse(d) a great recession…unleashed the longest stretch of job creation in our history…open(ed) a new chapter with (Cuba), shut down Iran’s nuclear weapons program…took out the mastermind of 9/11, (and) secured the right to health insurance for” millions.

Fact: Protracted Main Street Depression conditions festered throughout his tenure because he took no corrective action – letting rich and powerful Americans amass greater than ever wealth at the expense of exploited ordinary people.

Fact: The vast majority of jobs created continue to be rotten low-pay, poor-or-no-benefit ones. Most households need two or more to survive. Homelessness, hunger and deprivation reached record levels on Obama’s watch. Over 100 million working-age Americans have no employment.

Fact: According to annual US intelligence community assessments, Iran had no nuclear weapons program to shut down.

Fact: Obama didn’t kill Osama. He died of natural causes in December 2001 – widely reported at the time.

Fact: America’s illegal embargo on Cuba remains unchanged with no prospect of it being lifted.
Fact: Obamacare enriched drug companies, insurers and large hospital chains at the expense of providing affordable healthcare for all Americans.

Obama: “America is a better, stronger place than it was when we started.”

Fact: America is the world’s most reviled pariah state, more than ever under Obama and his neocon infested administration.

Obama: “I committed to President-Elect Trump that my administration would ensure the smoothest possible transition, just as President Bush did for me.”

Fact: Pro-Hillary dark forces continue going all out to undermine Trump’s legitimacy – a White House sponsored coup attempt to deny him the office he won or make his tenure untenable.

Fact: The latest despicable tactic calls Trump a virtual Manchurian candidate, manipulated by Russia to serve its interests – despite no evidence suggesting it, more lies to delegitimize him.

It helps to reflect on real ACTIONS over claims.

Note: The above clipped text omits the DIA admitted Proxy War Crime in Syria that's killed thousands.
