Washington Post: Obama Lies Again

Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- It’s as if Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are in a contest to see who can tell the most lies.

On Tuesday of last week, during the memorial service for the five law enforcement officers who were killed in Dallas on July 7, Obama said, “We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.”

On Thursday, the Washington Post Fact Checker slammed Obama with “Three Pinocchios” for the claim, calling it “strange.”

However, we’re not sure that “strange” is the best way to describe it. On the one hand, the claim was indeed “strange” to the extent that comparing guns to computers and books is, as the newspaper put it, “a catchy talking point [that] doesn’t make much sense” and “an exaggerated claim based in no real statistics, and which does nothing but distract the public.” And it was “strange,” as in “inappropriate,” for Obama to try to transform the solemn occasion of a memorial service into a campaign event for more political grandstanding on his gun control agenda.

However, “strange” can mean “unusual,” but there’s nothing unusual about Obama lying. He did so in Dallas, and for that reason perhaps it would have been more accurate for the Post to have termed his claim “false.”

As the newspaper noted, “Federal law prohibits licensed firearms dealers from selling a handgun, such as a Glock, to people under 21 years old. It prohibits unlicensed people, like family, from selling or transferring handguns to anyone under 18. In most states, you need to be at least 18 to purchase and own a handgun. Public libraries, on the other hand, generally don’t have an age limit or a background check for children to get a library card and access books and computers for free.”

The Post added, “It reminded us of a similar claim by Obama in March 2015, when he said, “There are neighborhoods where it’s easier for you to buy a handgun and clips than it is for you to by a fresh vegetable.”

The newspaper gave Obama “Three Pinicchios” on that occasion, calling his “vegetable” comment one in an “odd series of exaggerated gun claims.” It also gave Obama “Three Pinocchios” when he claimed that 40 percent of gun sales took place without a background check.

It’s anyone’s guess whether Obama or Clinton is ahead in their apparent race to tell the most lies. The good news for America is that Obama has only a few more months to rack up his tally while in the White House.

@rokflyer, snuff dipping: check
Turkey loving: check
gun rack user: check

There something about being the last snuff dipping, Turkey loving, real back window gunrack using joker. In my family, and in my neighborhood. After retirement, I even managed to ” Unprogram ” a college graduate attitude. Now, l look at my college educated, nephews, niece’s, and their skewed political views, and it’s disheartening. Thankfully, my two are educated, and still understand why their hick, dad is an Oathkeeper. And why both their grand dad’s, Korea and WW ll, flags and insignia. Are still displayed prominently in my home. No convenience is worth liberty, rokflyer

@Tex, you’ve got to be the biggest piece of shit on this site. It must be a challenge to try and be so full of racism, bigotry, hate, and paranoia on a daily basis.

Obama is absolutely horrible, but he’s an absolutely horrible American. And, even if he were Muslim, which he’s not, that wouldn’t disqualify him from being president.

You, on the other hand, have no shot at anything coming close to success.

Politicians only tell the truth two times in their careers, “Elect me” “Reelect me” The rest of the time they don’t even know or care who we are. They are too busy paying back the money from their Lords & Masters that bought their offices for them. Our Congress is corrupt and our Democracy is for sale. ask any of the 1%. They have been buying and selling politicians for years. The answer is, term limits, two terms then go on Social Insecurity and Medicare just like the rest of us. Enough of this privileged Nobility class crap, no more… Read more »

Maybe someone ought to let our “president” know that since he has decided to be loudly anti-gun,

Nothing new here. They constantly lie to the people. But that is pretty much our fault for not holding these idiots accountable. We continue to elect the same idiots over and over. This will be the case until We The People wake up and have some common sense.

MBH – I did hear Obama take credit for the “lowest crime rate in the last 30 or 40 years”. I will have to admit, he does deserve some of the credit: His gun ban agenda is responsible for the highest number of guns EVER in America, which has a direct correlation to lower crime rates. However, he has also contradicted himself on many occasions, claiming that gun violence and mass shootings are the worst they have ever been (which is of course another lie).

SGM – It would be the biggest mistake that SOB ever did to even try it. Not sure many of the police would go along so He have to depend on the military, OH wait they hate his guts too, maybe the UN, those blue hats make them hard to miss, Secret Service would throw him under the bus so that leaves him and he would not last two seconds!!

Black and White, Left and Right


“The biggest difference between the left and right today, when it comes to racial issues, is that liberals tend to take the side of those blacks who are doing the wrong things — hoodlums the left depicts as martyrs, while the right defends those blacks more likely to be the victims of those hoodlums.” – Thomas Sowell

I’m black, and I can not believe that it took almost eight years to see this liar in the White House. When I first learned about the church he attended pastored by a racist, I knew that nothing good would be coming from him. A racist himself! I have disliked him from the beginning! I just can not stand anyone who is racist; be them black, white,blue green,brown, or any color. Obama isn’t black, he just looks black; if your wife send you to the dog house even when you act like one, you’re not a real dog.

It looks like 1938 again. Europe is almost at war, turmoil is rising.
As a child raised in Indonesia, Barry Obama is unable to see Muslim violence as being wrong.
Those who deny the plain facts are often the ones who have their head severed by a pocket knife on a beach for the jihad.

for the past 7 plus years Obama has been the best gun salesman this country has ever known, by scaring us into buying guns before they outlaw them, up to a point where the manufactures couldn’t make them fast enough. the gun industry probably was the only industry that flourished during his tenure.

Soon every teenager will need a gun for all the illegals Obama has let in to this country that want to go by their own laws. As far as getting a book, Obama doesn’t want them to learn anything anyway so why would he want them to get a book.

Obviously narcissistic ObaMAO and Hitlery believe that Americans are stupid and will believe anything they say. That may be true where the “Demobots” are concerned, but anyone with intelligence can immediately see through their HOTEL SIERRA and recognize them for the congenital liars that they are.
