“Progress is on the ballot,” Comrade Barry said at a campaign rally here last week. “Tolerance is on the ballot. Justice is on the ballot. Equality is on the ballot. Our democracy is on the ballot!”
That was Barack Obama on the 2016 Campaign Trail in October of this year. In an OpEd in the LA Times, Christi Parsons opined that Obama seemed to be campaigning more for his legacy than then-candidate Hillary Clinton.
Comrade Barry has previously stated that he plans to remain in Washington D.C. The inside-the-beltway consensus for that decision is that Barry wants to stay behind to defend his legacy from the newcomer.
The beltway media will have access to Barry so he may comment on every potential threat to his eight-year legacy. It is interesting that the decision to remain in D.C. came when all the intelligentsia predicted a November Clinton victory.

The True Comrade Barry Legacy
Given this desire to focus Comrade Barry’s legacy, the condition of the U.S. and the world since 2009 is fitting. Let’s begin with one of the most glaring and sickening aspects of the “legacy”; the War on the Police.
Barry fired the first shot and gave a strong indication of things to come when, after admitting that he was not there and did not have all the facts, stated that a police officer at Cambridge University “acted stupidly” during the arrest of a professor who also happened to be black.
Normally, the President should not have the time to address a minor incident that shouldn’t have seen mass media attention. But, the Great Divider that he is, Barry could not help but to jump right in with both feet.
Despite the fact that grand juries exonerated the pilloried police officers in multiple cases, race-baiters were out in full force. They were sparking riots in Ferguson, MO, Baltimore, MD, Memphis, TN, Milwaukee, WI, and Charlotte, NC to name a few. Comrade Barry and his White House became mute and refused to publicly condemn the rioters and those who instigated them.
Black Lives Matter
After Black Lives Matter supporters marched down the streets of New York chanting “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now.”(video below). The reaction of the Barry White House was to invite BLM leaders to D.C. and praise their “efforts”.
Terror at Home and Abroad
After announcing publicly that the United States would be ceasing offensive military operations in Iraq and de facto Afghanistan and then formally endorsing the “Arab Spring”, the Comrade Barry Administration destabilized stable governments in Egypt, Libya, and Syria. This created a power vacuum in Iraq, much like Nixon did in Southeast Asia, and ISIS grew from a small Al Qaeda offshoot to a uniformed military force.
At this writing, over 18,000 people have been confirmed to have been killed by direct ISIS action. ISIS-inspired terrorists have killed scores more in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the United States. Despite having assured the nation that ISIS was a “JV Team”, Obama has not been able to stop the spread of ISIS instigated terror within the United States or stop the genocide of Christians in northern Iraq or Syria.
Even after being confronted with hard evidence that the terror attacks in San Bernardino, CA, Chattanooga, TN, Miami, FL, New York, Garland, TX, Boston, MA, Ft. Hood, TX, were all committed by Muslims who publicly supported Islamic Jihad, Comrade Barry refused to ever utter the words “Islamic Terror” or “Muslim Terrorists”.
Comrade Barry’s administration has yet to answer to the American public as to how 20,000 U.S. Army M-16A2 rifles and 15,000 9mm rounds went missing from a warehouse in Kuwait in 2013. That is enough rifles to equip, not a battalion or regiment, but an entire DIVISION of soldiers. Ironically, Abu Wahiyib Shakir, an ISIS leader, was photographed in June of 2014 surrounded by bodyguards carrying, not Soviet AK’s but, US Army M-16A2 rifles. The Comrade BarryAdministrationo has yet to explain that coincidence
Like the proverbial Pontius Pilate, Obama washed his hands completely of the September 11, 2012 attacks on the US Consulate and CIA station house in Benghazi, Libya. He was willing to let Hillary Clinton take the heat, knowing her propensity to weasel out of responsibility, and he took part in the cover-up lie that a YouTube video (referenced above) insired the attack.
Despite claiming that those responsible would be “brought to justice”, four years later the people of the United States are still awaiting justice for the murder of US Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty. Barry promised that their “sacrifice will not be forgotten”. Do you believe he kept that promise?
Not Enough Ink and Paper
I don’t have enough ink and paper to tally of lies, fraud, corruption, and other failings of the Comrade Barry Legacy. In addition to flagrantly violating the US Constitution, lying directly in the faces of the American people, and skirting responsibility for his failings, the Legacy of Barack Hussein Obama can be summed up as a War on Police, a Rise in Terrorism at Home and Abroad, and a Dead Ambassador who is still awaiting justice from the grave.
We have not even touched the $3 Billion “Cash for Clunkers” taxpayer ripoff. Nor have we touched the $2.2 Billion “Green Energy” scheme that funneled money to Obama cronies. Nor the 25-50% health care premium increases due to ObamaCare and the $1 Billion hole in the ACA budget. Should we mention the tens of thousands of doctors taking early retirement or leaving practice due to the ACA? No, that’s a story for another time.
