Serious Obama

 

Serial liar President Barack Obama has been busted in yet another one of his serial lies. This time it is a lie he told Thursday in the hopes of politically exploiting the cold-blooded murders of 9 innocent people into legislative action that would restrict the Second Amendment civil rights of law-abiding Americans.

Just hours after a racist terror attack took the lives of nine black parishioners guilty of nothing more than attending Bible study at a Charleston, South Carolina, church, Obama stood before America and did what he usually does when standing before America: He cynically exploited a tragedy to further his political agenda, and he lied:

“At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency. And it is in our power to do something about it.”

That statement is such a brazen and provable lie that even the left-wing PolitiFact couldn’t find a way to turn it into anything but a “Mostly False.”

Still, using this data, it’s easy to dispense with the first claim Obama made — that “this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries.”

Over the decade and a half studied, the researchers found 23 incidents of mass shootings in the other 10 countries, resulting in 200 dead and 231 wounded. In the United States over the same period, there were 133 incidents that left 487 dead and 505 wounded. …

[T]he U.S. doesn’t rank No. 1. At 0.15 mass shooting fatalities per 100,000 people, the U.S. had a lower rate than Norway (1.3 per 100,000), Finland (0.34 per 100,000) and Switzerland (1.7 per 100,000). …

Still, while the United States did rank in the top one-third of the list, the fact that three other countries exceeded the United States using the fairest method of comparison available does weaken Obama’s claim that “it doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency.” In at least three countries, the data shows, it does.

PolitiFact sums it all up with a “Mostly False” ruling:

The data shows that it clearly happens in other countries, and in at least three of them, there’s evidence that the rate of killings in mass-shooting events occurred at a higher per-capita rate than in the United States between 2000 and 2014.

Even though President Obama has a long, sordid history of lying to the American people, that didn’t stop the mainstream media from spreading Obama’s “mass-murder” lie without first investigating his claim.

That’s because the media is as eager as Obama to take guns away from law-abiding people, and like Obama, the media believes that lying in furtherance of that cause is justifiable.

If you’ll take the “Serial Liar” link at the beginning of the copy, you’ll find three and a half pages (3 1/2) of statements that PolitiFact’s TRUTH-O-METER rated as FALSE – that’s 70 lies by Obama. Get that? SEVENTY lies by the President of the United States – and that’s determined by an entity that can hardly be classified as conservative. Why does anyone continue to believe anything that he says?

    This asshole is better served keeping his arugula hole SHUT. How so many could be duped by such an asshat defies belief.

      That’s another byproduct of Odumbshit’s administration. Apparently, it’s no longer bad to lie – Obama’s made it acceptable. Just look at the number of people who said that Hillary was not trustworthy, but who would still vote for her. What’s wrong with this picture?????

  2. Kathy says:

    Most sane people don’t believe him and haven’t for a long time. It is surprising to see Politico publish this – that tells you just how bad things really are.

    • Garnet92 says:

      I was amazed to see PolitiFact list SEVENTY lies by Obama – and they missed some, and they lean left. He’s a lying P.O.S. and that’s being kind.

    It’s the water, airwaves and air and drugs… I tell ya….poisoned and zombie virus and ear bombarded by the minute. Where is my bag of aluminium hats!

    Uriel, it’s getting so bad, we’re going to have to upgrade from tinfoil hats to tinfoil helmets!
