30 (and counting) lies of Barack Obama. I will continue to update this as I find more lies. If you have any not listed here, post them in comments and I’ll add them to the list!

1 – The Poor Poor Daddy Lie
Barack Obama has portrayed his father as a ‘goatherd’; suggesting his father was some poor poor peasant black migrant, who miraculously traveled to America. In reality, the Senior Obama came from an affluent, successful family and often bragged about his wealth. Read more here.

2 – The Christian Lie
Barack Obama pretends to be a Christian. It’s common knowledge that he was raised in the faith of terrorism (Islam), but he also considered joining the Nation of Islam in the 1980’s. He eventually joined the church he still belongs to: Trinity United Church of Christ (which is an left wing church). Furthermore, Obama has never given any definite dates for baptism and membership at Trinity. Read more here.

3 – The Law Professor Lie
Barack Obama claimed to be a professor at the University of Chicago law school. He did not hold the title of professor; he was a senior lecturer. Read more here.

4 – The Ordinary Land Deal Lie
Barack Obama bought a piece of land from a troubled developer: Tony Rezko. And claimed it was just business and didn’t know about Resko. Resko was in trouble before this transaction. And Obama and Rezko go back to at least 1990 and Obama knew he was dealing shady business. And more recently Obama admitted he accepted as much as $250,000 from Rezko for this early campaigns.  Read more here and Here.

5 – The Foreign Experience Lie
Barack Obama attended a Muslim school in Indonesia at the ages of 6 to 10. That is his basis for claiming he has a good background for foreign policy.

6 – The Early Drug Use Lie
Barack Obama admits to using drugs in his ‘youth’. Was his youth in 1999? This person claims to have snorted coke (and had sex) with Barack Obama in 1999. Read more here.

7 – The I Won’t Run Lie
Barack Obama made the statement “I Won’t Run On A National Ticket In 08” on live TV. No further comment necessary for this lie.

8 – The I Saved Altgeld Gardens Lie
Barack Obama wrote in his book about this community work in the ghetto Altgeld Gardens in the 1980’s. In his book, he pretends he had a major role in redevelopment. Coworkers contradict that and said he overstated his role at Altgeld Gardens. When exposed, Obama called this embellishment of an author. By the way, Altgeld Gardens is hardly redeveloped. Read more here.

9 – The I was Always Against Iraq Lie
Barack Obama claims to have been against the Iraq invasion, but was not in the senate when it was authorized. Since then, Barack Obama has voted to continue funding it!

10 – The I am Against Wal-Mart Lie
Barack Obama has been against Wal-Mart and in 2006 put his support in a union-backed campaign against Wal-Mart. But his wife, socialist Michelle Obama, is a paid board member of Treehouse, a Wal-Mart exclusive supplier.

11 – The Horrible Subprime Mortgage Crisis Lie
Barack Obama pretends he has has the answer to the mortgage crisis and can lift the country out of the problem. But his hands are DEEP in the subprime pot – he took in over $1,000,000 from subprime sources. Read more here.

12 – The I don’t think my Church is Controversial Lie
Barack Obama said “I don’t think my church is actually particularly controversial” in reference to his hate church. When the Wright videos exploded and Obama was forced to make a speech, his gums flapped a different story “Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes.”

13 – The Gun Control Lie
Barack Obama tried to pretend he would protect the right to bear arms. Yet he funded 2.7 million to anti gun groups. His name appeared on a Senate questionnaire that supported banning “the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns.” After that last point surfaced, Obama tried to blame it on his staff. Read more here.

14- The Gas Tax Lie
Obama critized Hillary Clinton and John McCain for offering the American people a gas tax break during the upcoming summer. He called it pandering to the voters. Too bad Obama has himself supported gas tax breaks to Illinois voters in the past. Read More here.

15 – The Barack Obama Name Lie
He was once known as “Barry Soetoro” What kind of a person changes their name like that? Answer? A socialist from a broken home. Read More here.

16 – The Hate Crimes Lie
Barack Obama made up lies about hate crime statistics. It was picked up on Lou Dobbs, and when exposed, Obama tried to accuse Lou Dobbs and Rush Limbaugh of hate crimes. Read more Here.

17 – The Auschwitz Lie
Barack Obama said his great uncle helped free prisoners from Auschwitz in WWII. This was quickly dissed as a lie (wrong camp!) and it clearly shows that Obama just makes things up as he goes along. Read more Here.

18 – The Precondition Lie
In the summer of 2007, Barack Obamas was asked point blank: “Would you be willing to meet separately, without precondition, during the first year of your administration, in Washington or anywhere else, with the leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea in order to bridge the gap that divides our countries.”. He answered “I would”. Now he’s backpedaling and talking about preconditions such as meeting with Raul Castro “at a time and place of my choosing.”Read more Here.

19 – The Peel off the Skin Lie
Barack Obama made up a lie about seeing a story in Life Magazine about a black man who had tried to ‘peel off his skin’ by using chemicals to lighten it. Life Magazine could find no such article and then Obama tried to cover it up by saying he forgot what magazine it was. Read more here.

20 – The No Lobbyist Money Lie
Barack Obama pretends he (and the DNC) keeps their hands clean from Lobbyist money. He says “… we will not take a dime from Washington lobbyists”. Too bad he takes money from plenty of other lobbyists. He conveniently accepts money from lobbyists who don’t do business with the government AND he accepts money from family members of lobbyists. That sounds pretty loose to me and leaves plenty of lobbyist doors wide open. Major BS alert! Read more hear. Read more here and here!

21 – The Public Funds Lie
Barack Obama for years supported the idea of people running for office being restricted to the use of public funds. This was to keep the special interest money out. This was in line with “Change you can believe in” mantra. But as with all things Obama, it was BS. He doesn’t hold himself to the same standards and refused public funds because he suddenly says the public funding system is broken. So much for change we can believe in! Instead it’s Sky’s the Limit special interest money lining his pocket. Read more here.

22 – The Iraq Troup Withdrawal Lie
Obama based his campaign on a quick withdrawal of troops from Iraq. In July 2008 after he had clinched the nomination illegitimately, he changed his mind or said he might change his mind. In other words, he lied. Read more here.

23 – The Troop Surge Lie
Barack Obama vehemently opposed the troop surge that President Bush ordered in January, 2007. The opposition was voiced on his website. The Iraq troop surge was listed as part of “The Problem”. But sometime around July 15, 2008, that opposition disappeared from his website. Read more here.

24 – The Pre-convention Debate Lie
Barack Obama thought John McCain’s idea to have a series of a series of pre-convention appearances at town hall meetings was a good idea – until it came time to follow through. Then he chickened out and just agreed to the standard three debates in the fall. Read more here.

25 -The Offshore Drilling Lie
Barack Obama rode his campaign on a lying energy horse. He said he opposed offshore drilling and he opposed tapping emergency reserves. Now his “energy plan” includes both of those options! Read more here.

26 – The I was Born in Hawaii Lie
Barack Obama says he was born in Hawaii and is therefore an American by birth. However it appears that his birth document is forged from his sisters! And that leads to the question: where was he born? Who cares? He is a liar, a fraud, and cannot be president. Read more here and here

27 – The Atheist Dad Lie
Barack Obama claims that his father (Obama Sr) was an atheist. However Obama Sr was muslim and was buried as as one. Read more here.

28 – The Banking Committee Lie
Barack Obama refered to the Senate Banking Committee as “my committee”. Barack Obama is not on the Banking Committee nor any of its subcommittees! See Video here.

29 – The Airlift Lie
Barack Obama told his Selma audience: “So the Kennedy’s decided we’re going to do an air lift. We’re going to go to Africa and start bringing young Africans over to this country and give them scholarships to study so they can learn what a wonderful country America is. This young man named Barack Obama got one of those tickets and came over to this country.” In reality, Barack Obama Sr was awarded a sponsored scholarship in economics to the University of Hawaii at Manoa. He was not part of an airlift. See Full Text here.

30 – The Tornado Lie
Barack Obama told an audience in Kansas after a deadly tornado: “In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died.” In reality, the death toll was 12.Read More here.



  1. It IS remarkably SAD that you have spent so much time letting others do such POOR research for you,
    especially when you have a tool that CAN reach to
    any part of this WORLD. And by siting most of your
    gossamer quotes from FAUX,I mean Fox news says that you’re just filling in spaces on the empty screen.
    Me thinks that your avoiding some sort of lymbic
    melanoma because your are AVOIDING THE LIGHT OF
    TRUTH. But It’s OK we won’t be around to see how
    poorly we ALL chose.

    INDONESEAN step-father.If we Americans tried to
    learn the laws and customs of our neighbors we
    might not be where we are today,hades, if we learned most of our OWN laws we wouldn’t be where
    we are today.

  2. Kind of makes you wonder who he is doesn’t it? Did he lie about his education too, because there is a video that surfaced on his recent trip to Oregon that clearly shows he doesn’t even know how many states are in the Continental U.S. 57? 58? Hmmm, let me think, I’ll get back to you on that. The video, along with a great one of him sporting an erection to the press corp. on board his campaign jet can be seen on my blog at: Thanks for pointing out all these points of contention, very interesting!

    Comment by crthead — May 27, 2008 @ 1:43 pm | Reply

  3. Crthead – yes I saw that and I would say the 57 states is more of a ‘gaffe’. In all fairness, he might have been referring to having campaigned in some states multiple times which he has done. He just “didn’t say it right” (haha, he uses that a lot). It’s no wonder he let Hillary off the hook for the RFK remark when he made that ‘tired mistake’ too. I’m not sure about that video, kinda grainy and could be the way the pants are creased. I usually am not a good judge of that, leave it to the gays and ladies LOL!

  8. Barack Obama to Christianity today, “I am a Christian, and I am a devout Christian. I believe in the redemptive death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I believe that that faith gives me a path to be cleansed of sin and have eternal life. But most importantly, I believe in the example that Jesus set by feeding the hungry and healing the sick and always prioritizing the least of these over the powerful. I didn’t ‘fall out in church’ as they say, but there was a very strong awakening in me of the importance of these issues in my life. I didn’t want to walk alone on this journey. Accepting Jesus Christ in my life has been a powerful guide for my conduct and my values and my ideals.

    There is one thing that I want to mention that I think is important. Part of what we’ve been seeing during the course this campaign is some scurrilous e-mails that have been sent out, denying my faith, talking about me being a Muslim, suggesting that I got sworn in the U.S. Senate with a Quran in my hand or that I don’t pledge allegiance to the flag. I think it’s really important for your readers to know that I have been a member of the same church for almost 20 years, and I have never practiced Islam. I am respectful of the religion, but it’s not my own. One of the things that’s very important in this day and age is that we don’t use religion as a political tool and certainly that we don’t lie about religion as a way to score political points. I just thought it was important to get that in there to dispel rumors that have been over the Internet. We’ve done so repeatedly, but obviously it’s a political tactic of somebody to try to provide this misinformation.” Barack Obama

  9. Matericia: anyone can say they are Christian. Many do and many are really not. So his empty words mean nothing to me and those of us who don’t swallow what he says without question.

  10. I think you need to get a grip. If you vote for john mccain he will continue to give all of our hard earned money to iraq. If we dont get a different TYPE of president soon, what will we have to look forward to, WAR IN IRAQ, WAR IN AFGANISTAN, WAR IN IRAN, WAR WITH RUSSIA. all politician lie, they wanna win. George Bush is the biggest liar of them all, if you support his puppet, this country will never change. ALL POLITIANS LIE, HOW CAN WE BLAME EVERY MUSLIM-if he is-for what some do. if that the case blame yourself for all of the stuff people in your family do. ALL GENERATIONS….

  11. Laughable.Not a quest for truth but simple repetition of various email smears. You will not win this year with such tactics. Obama has as many as 20 percent of conservatives behind him according to a Zogby poll released today. Part of their reasoning is stuff like this.

  12. o.O Didn’t every single one of these ‘lies’ get debunked by like… 2 months ago? Anyone who actually believes any of these are actually Obama lies, needs a wake-up call to the real reality.

  13. We all tend to believe what we want to believe and gravitate toward web sites that affirm our own beliefs. If you want to see another perspective on these smears on Obama, go to

    I always wonder why people have to make up bad things about Obama. Maybe it’s a defensive mechanism because there are so many bad true things that can be said about the Republicans. Maybe it’s just like the Swift Boat lies of 2004. If you put enough lies out there, some people start to believe some of them.

    If you are reading and believing everything on this page, do yourself a favor and get educated on facts and don’t believe lies and half-truths.

  14. First of all I am hoping Obama doesn’t get elected because “Bush the idiot” has totally screwed America up. Obama should not have to try to clean up what the bozos have done. I hope McCain gets in office only to continue to
    f_ _ _ up things some more. Then perhaps your friends or family members can go to war for another hundred years, and it doesn’t matter if you come home. McCain will continue to hurt the working class, of course it probably will not effect you. You must be rich, right? Oh, by the way, when you come home from the war, that is if you don’t die first and/or make it back to the US, McCain is going to screw you again.

    The difference between me and you is I am use to struggling, so it’s just another day at the plantation if McCain wins. I promise me and mine will survive. Don’t vote for Obama, I bet he will survive, too.

  17. It is a sad statement that in this nation when Americans cannot simply vote for the candidate of their choice based on factual knowledge. Imagine simply making a choice based on what a candidate will do for the nation. Instead, we see an onslaught of lies, half-truths and deliberate deception to trigger American’s to stop thinking and vote based on emotion rather than informed facts. Imagine the number of Americans who believed that John Kerry who volunteered to go to Vietnam was less patriotic than two men who avoided the draft at all cost….Cheney actually getting 5 deferrments.

    It is no different that a sports fan who claims his team is the best, choosing to ignore thier winless record. Think about those who have lied to gain political power: Mao, Stalin, Hitler…..nice company. The mentality that we see here that produces such political tactics is a greater threat to America than all the falsehoods printed in blogs and websites like the one here.

  20. You have left off the BAIPA lie. While in the Illinois Senate, Barack objected in committee to the bill offered as the Illinois version of the existing law, the Federal ‘Born Alive Infants Protection Act’. After the committee amended the bill to exactly reflect the wording of the Federal Act, he voted against it and the bill was killed in the committee as the result. BAIPA protects, and the Illinois bill that Barack voted to kill would have protected, those babies who survive an abortion and were then being abandoned with no treatment, care, or support to die. The expose that led to the bill was the result of a whistleblower about Illinois hospitals putting such babies into a closet until they had died.

  21. It is true the news media supported Obama, but it did it for a different reason than believing he would make a great president.

    A black president would be headline news. Headline news, is what the news media wants; it is their business; it is more money to them. Just think of the thousands of people that will buy a newspaper, for the first time, if he wins.

    If I were Barack Obama, I’d probably feel used by the news media, but I understand he does not even listen to it, or read the newspapers.
