Frankly, I thought this would be a much bigger deal in the media than it was. I spent a fair amount of time in the proverbial locker room that is the Border Patrol, and, despite what you may have heard about people being more accepting of homosexuality than ever before, guys haze each other about being gay all the time. As when Dylan Mulvaney shilling for Bud Light wound up seriously damaging their product, I have to believe that sullying Obama’s reputation in the eyes of blue collar Americans would still be a Republican strategy. It seems pretty clear that Obama is at the very least bi-sexual if not completely homosexual. However, there is a larger issue here; Obama’s ability to be dishonest. Perhaps, that’s why Obama was recruited in the first place to be president. The fact of the matter is that Obama could never have been elected President if anything like this had ever come out. That alone is a big deal. I didn’t like John McCain either, but I doubt that McCain would have completely disregarded Congress and started the DACA program via internal memo.
There’s a lot of black sports athletes who would be a lot less enthusiastic about Obama if they thought they were supporting a fairy.
The leftwing open borders crowd called Obama the “Deporter-in-Chief” after Obama cooked the books on immigration enforcement making it appear as if he increased deportations when exactly the opposite was true. Most Mexicans were given Voluntary Returns (VRs) to return to Mexico and not have to be held in custody awaiting a trial. The sub-category of Expedited Removals was simply relabeled as “deportations” and miraculously the Obama administration was able to claim to have deported more people than previous administrations without actually deporting a single alien more. It was all fraud.
Some of the open borders crowd along with the media fell for his lies and labelled him the “Deporter-in-Chief”, I suggest a better name would have been the “Deceiver-in-Chief”. I guess if he could deceive the American public with his marriage, he would have no problem deceiving people about so much more (If you like your doctor, you can keep him).
Here is a video of Obama talking about his deception to Hispanic reporters back in 2011: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ut2s0EG8218.
First off, imagine if white people were granted the right to lobby for ourselves like everyone else is be they black, Hispanic, Asian, Arab or whatever. Imagine a President sitting down with a White Roundtable to answer questions exclusively from white reporters who advocate for white rights. That simply doesn’t exist. We simply are not human beings to the mainstream.
Obama starts off the interview talking of his support for “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” aka, amnesty by another name. He says he has put more resources in border security “than anything that’s been done in previous administrations”. As a BP Agent working at the time, I can tell you that was a lie, a very brazen one. Obama was tying the hands of Border Patrol and limiting our ability to make arrests. At the five minute mark, Hispanic reporter Gabriel Lerner says, “You have been deporting much more immigrants than the previous administration”. To which Obama stated one of his most brazen deceptions, “Actually if you look at the statistics two things happen, number one is that there was a much greater emphasis on criminals rather than non-criminals and there has been a huge shift in terms of enforcement and that began as soon as I came into office. Secondly, the statistics are a little deceptive because what we’ve been doing is-with stronger border enforcement- we’ve been apprehending folks at the borders and sending them back. That is counted as a deportation, even though, they may have only been held for a day or 48 hours sent back. That’s counted as a deportation. So, we’ve been much more effective on the borders, but we have not been more aggressive when it comes to for example dealing with Dream Act kids. That’s just not the case.”
How do I unpack so many lies and half truths in such a short paragraph? There was always an emphasis on deporting criminals. What Obama did was de-emphasize non-criminals and had us releasing illegal aliens who had not been convicted of a crime. Mind you, that didn’t mean they hadn’t been previously arrested for a crime. They had to have been convicted in order to earn a deportation. BUT, there was no increase in focusing on the criminals. If anything, Obama’s getting rid of the Secure Communities Program led to a decline in criminals getting picked up. “…there has been a significant decline in interior enforcement activity by ICE, with noticeably fewer criminal aliens being arrested by ICE and processed for deportation.”
Secondly, when Obama says that the “statistics are a little deceptive”, he’s doing what a lot of people do when caught lying. They minimize the offense. In actuality, those statistics were a flat out lie, not just “a little deceptive.” Instead of saying what he did, he should have gone on to say “That is counted as a deportation, even though, prior to my administration the same action was not counted as a deportation.” His claim of being more effective on the border was just more lies.
Obama paved the way for Biden and Biden’s version of Baghdad Bob, Alejandro Mayorkas who doesn’t even try to hide his lies. “Who are you going to believe? Me, or your lying eyes?” The effrontery of Mayorkas saying that the border is secure requires an incredible amount of chutzpah. He probably realizes the Republicans are cowards because he is openly defying them to do anything at all to stop him. They don’t have the intestinal fortitude to impeach him, let alone Biden or “Border Czar” Harris.
Going back to Obama’s interview by Hispanic reporters, the lies keep coming. He claims he’s going after employers, but that was not true. Worksite enforcement decreased under Obama.
At around minute 23 of the same interview, Gabriel Lerner brings up the case of a gay man in love with a foreigner who complains about his ability to bring in his partner to the United States. Unbeknownst to us at the time, they were really speaking Obama’s language. You have to wonder if the White House didn’t pre-screen questions back then. The nerve of the questioner in North Carolina demanding that the President “Fix this” requires gall. Obama then claims he cannot make laws by himself without Congress…something he went ahead and unlawfully did anyway with D.A.C.A. Who needs Congress? I got a pen!
Obama’s secret life of deception at home, may well have helped to make him a smooth liar in front of the public. If I hadn’t seen what was going on first hand with his dismantling of immigration enforcement, but only heard his interview, I too may have actually believed him. As it was, because I was in the thick of things, I knew what a liar he was.
