Oliver North: Truth Be Told, Obama too Often Isn’t Telling the Truth

Here are a few examples of this week’s words that just don’t match what’s right:
“We have known for decades that our survival depends on finding new sources of energy. Yet we import more oil today than ever before.” The first sentence is spot on. The second sentence simply isn’t true. Since 2005, U.S. oil imports have steadily declined from a high of 5 billion barrels per year.

“I believe the nation that invented the automobile cannot walk away from it.” Great line, but wrong. The first “automobile” (a French word) was invented by Frenchman Nicolas Cugnot in 1769. In 1862, French inventor de Rochas built an internal-combustion engine powered car. Karl Benz, a German, was issued the first patent for a “self-powered car” in 1886. Henry Ford was first to mass-produce automobiles — starting in 1913 and he did it without any U.S. government money.

“In the midst of civil war, we laid railroad tracks from one coast to another that spurred commerce and industry.” Not true. Our transcontinental railroad, arguably the greatest engineering feat of the 19th century, began in 1830 and was not completed until 1869 – as a private sector venture. The federal government’s role was limited to “eminent domain” land seizures, authorizing the import of immigrant laborers, guaranteeing private bank loans and approving the actions of administrators in federal Territories.
Many more untruths by Obama according to Col. North….Read them all click here

Thanks sir for pointing all these un-truths out, someone needs to let the American people know that Obama is alot of hot air. He been telling un-truths from the start of his campaign for president…he didn’t know how many States was in The United States was just one! For some reason he will not release his birth place.

  1. I’m not sure that many people care about theses types of factual errors, although Bush would have been blasted for them. I think Obama is out to create a new Democratic majority, people who pay little, if any, income taxes and see Washington as their source for virtually everything. Very sad.

  2. From a book review in The New Criterion, this passage can stand alone:

    … many of the Western democracies are becoming tripartite states in which one-third of all taxpayers are employed by government at some level, one-third of the people are crucially dependent in some way on government support (welfare, Medicare, Medicaid, farm subsidies, and a gazillion other untrackable support programs), and one-third produces the income (the tax base) paid out in supports for the first two-thirds. Anyone can see that, as this develops in a mass “democratic” system, the first two-thirds will always gang up on the last.

  3. Obama never claimed the American government did it all, singlehandedly. America and American people did all that. They’re not lies.

    “The federal government’s role was limited to “eminent domain” land seizures, authorizing the import of immigrant laborers, guaranteeing private bank loans and approving the actions of administrators in federal Territories.”

    So – other than providing the land, providing a cheap workforce, and guaranteeing the capital investment – other than just that, private enterprise did it all. What a joke! That’d be called a “bailout” in 2009 parlance, yet Ollie North celebrates it as a testament to the efficiency of the private enterprise system – which for some reason, he doesn’t want to call the American system. Go figure.

  4. larrys you’re not worth a response!
    38% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President.
    Barack’s bucket has a hole in it! 🙂

  5. Ollie burnt his bridges. Wasn’t he discredited.
    All that matters now is jobs created and as many Americans who need and want work are given that.
    Then, they can enjoy spending their hard earned earnings as a reward that boosts the whole economy, not just top level bank managers/real estate brokers/and oil boss bonuses.
    At the least, its a plan for a prosperity for the majority. Ollie should go back to where he has hidden for years.

    Goodtimepolitics: Its to bad that you don’t know what in the hell you’re talking about andrea, you kind of reminds me of Barack with his lying on purpose.

    When John Poindexter And Oliver North took the stand in the Iran-Contra hearings, they kept the lid on a Presidential scandal far more serious than today’s.

    Poindexter’s story.
    He alone, not Reagan, was the villain. He alone had authorized North to make the diversion to the contras. He took full responsibility. The coverup, too. He’d never told the president about the diversion because he knew it would be politically explosive if it ever came out. From the beginning, he’d wanted to give the president deniability.

    But didn’t the doctrine of deniability, I asked, mean that the president was put in a position where he could deny what he actually knew? That was the point of deniability, wasn’t it? It certainly didn’t mean that aides made decisions on their own that could wreck a presidency without telling the president, did it?

    My questions didn’t faze Poindexter in the slightest. He insisted he had told the president nothing.

    “But do you understand,” I asked him, “that by claiming to be the most senior government official who approved the diversion, you’re leaving yourself without any legal defense that you were acting on presidential orders?” Read more at The Washington Post

    Goodtimepolitics: I hope the above enlighten you alittle about Col. North who served his country and took the heat to protect his president! To bad your BOY Obama can’t say that he had served his country. Hey what is Obama trying to keep from the American people about his birth Cert. ? Do you know what is on it thats so bad that he does not want anyone to see it?

  6. All that matters now is jobs created and as many Americans who need and want work are given that.

    Andrea, Porkulus: The Jobs Bill will likely do almost nothing to create — or “save” — jobs. But let’s suppose that it did create jobs. Would the jobs created really be “all that matters”? Massive increases in indebtedness and the tax burden, a real risk of government bankruptcies at all levels, a bleaker future. and less free — these wouldn’t matter, so long as some jobs were created? I suspect that this is not what you mean and that you are just unclear on what the all-that-matters talking point really implies.

  7. And, as for larrys, I think his larger point is that Americans really did invent the automobile, despite what the books say.

    In fairness, I don’t think Obama was lying on his historical points. It’s more plausible that his speechwriters are history-impaired. And Obama himself … hell, he doesn’t seem to know much of anything. Which, I suppose, figures. Being a convinced leftist requires ignoring or denying great chunks of the record.

  8. Didn’t mention the automobile, luke, wrote only about the transcontinental railroad – a subject which you conveniently avoided. Obama didn’t lie about it, your good ole boy goodtimepolitics did. (Notice I wasn’t racist enough to say “BOY” like you did, goodtimepolitics. That was your point, wasn’t it? “Ain’t no BLACK BOY who can be mah Prezzident.”)

  9. “I hope the above enlighten you alittle about Col. North who served his country and took the heat to protect his president!”

    If Reagan didn’t lie, North didn’t do anything to protect his President. If that’s the case, North did what he did without authorization and deserved to be convicted for his crimes.

  10. larrys, I guess what you’re really trying to say is that the automobile was invented by Americans. I mean, Obama said it, so who are we to question it?

  11. How many of the States within the United States did Boy Obama say he went to during his campaign? You’re right lukemcgook, maybe the “ONE” is just stupid when it comes to knowing right from wrong!

  12. I think he gave a nuanced figure, either 56 or 57. But that could change. I mean, if you can save or create jobs by adding or subtracting states, why not do it?
