https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siyBp8Csugk Okay people let’s do a thorough analysis of this man’s speech vs. the performance and policy decisions of his administration Fact Check of address: http://wuwm.com/post/npr-fact-check-president-barack-obamas-farewell-address#stream/0 Healthcare: Accomplishment- 20 million additional citizens insured Failure- Unable to create national healthcare system covering ALL citizens, due to the influence of the Health Insurance Industry LGBTQ rights- Accomplishment Gun Rights • Extended concealed carry to national parks, within the laws of the states containing them. • Allowed checking firearms on Amtrak trains, bringing their regulation consistent with air travel. • A regulatory change to NFA, which: o Removed the CLEO signoff, which was redundant with federal checks. o Requires FBI checks on all trust members. https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2016/01/04/fact-sheet-new-executive-actions-reduce-gun-violence-and-make-our Guantanamo- Still open, less prisoners: not entirely the fault of his administration; this is something he wanted closed by his last day in office, but was unable to persuade congress. Education: High Costs https://nces.ed.gov/programs/digest/d15/tables/dt15_330.10.asp?current=yes The Every Student Succeeds Act- effect TBD https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2015/12/03/fact-sheet-congress-acts-fix-no-child-left-behind Improvements to Head Start Infrastructure: 2013: http://www.infrastructurereportcard.org/a/#p/home Grade: D+ (that is bad, right) 2017: Has yet to be released (done every 4 years) Energy: Wind and Solar production, and use has increased Fracking increased dramatically (industry, and congress had a lot to do with this- not completely his administrations doing) Fossil Fuel and Coal are still main energy sources Race Relations: more tenuous or not? – you decide based on where you live (I have not witnessed much here in the predominantly white Utah, and I am not inclined to believe stories on the internet; Chicago and Baltimore seem to be hit the hardest) War (Proxy Wars included): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civilian_casualties_from_US_drone_strikes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unmanned_combat_aerial_vehicle https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wars_involving_the_United_States#21st_century_wars Iraq Afghanistan Pakistan Libya https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_drone_strikes_in_Pakistan Somalia Egypt Yemen https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_drone_strikes_in_Yemen Ukraine Nigeria Syria ** I would like to note here that many of these decisions are made by the CIA, the department of homeland security, and congress; therefore, only part of the blame can be attributed to the Obama administration. http://www.snopes.com/obama-executive-order-military-citizens/ “We cannot withdraw from big global fights to expand democracy….no matter how imperfect our efforts, no matter how expedient ignoring such values may seem, that’s part of defending America. For the fight against extremism and intolerance and sectarianism and chauvinism, are the peace with the fight against authoritarianism and nationalist aggression. If the scope of freedom and respect for the rule of law shrinks around the world, the likelihood of war within and between nations increases. And our own freedoms will eventually be threatened. So let’s be vigilant, but not afraid…..But they cannot defeat America, unless we betray our constitution and our principles. In the fight rivals like Russia or China cannot match our influence around the world unless we give up what we stand for, and turn ourselves into just another big country that bullies smaller neighbors.” “turn ourselves into just another big country that bullies smaller neighbors.” - Kettle, this is pot. The United States is at war with any country that does not accept our ideology. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1mlCPMYtPk https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_territory https://www.poynter.org/2014/fact-checking-the-war-comparisons-between-obama-and-bush/272471/ https://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/15/us/politics/obama-as-wartime-president-has-wrestled-with-protecting-nation-and-troops.html
