This is an unbelievable collection of specifics committed by Øbama against America and Americans.
Keep it handy. It'll come in useful.

below is a large part of Obama's disastrous legacy. Let me know if I
forgot anything? I guess this is what he meant by "Hope and Change."

following Islamic terrorist attacks occurred on U.S. soil after Obama
took office: Fort Hood, Chattanooga, Little Rock, the Boston Marathon,
San Bernardino, Orlando; the Sept. 2014 stabbings and decapitation
murder in Moore, Oklahoma; the little-known terror attack in Garland,
Texas on 5/3/15; the 9/17/16 bombings in New Jersey and NYC; 9/17/16
stabbings at Minnesota mall; the 5 murders in a Macy's north of Seattle
on 9/23/16; the 11/28/16 car attack, stabbings at Ohio State University;

congressional override during his presidency.
Issued an executive order giving the president additional power to declare Martial Law during peacetime.
August of 2012, said Syria will have "crossed a red line" if they use
chemical weapons, and warned of "enormous consequences." In August of
2013, Syrian President al-Assad allegedly DID end up using chemical
weapons against his own people (sarin gas was used to kill more than
1,400 civilians). Obama did nothing.
Refusing to call our mortal enemy by its name (won't say "radical Islamic terrorism").
Calling Major Nidal Hassan's Islamic terrorist attack at Fort Hood "workplace violence."

42,611 Somali refugees resettled into U.S. during Obama's first 7 years in office. 99% Muslim.
No vetting of refugees for extremist views.

His lax (some would say non-existent) immigration
enforcement and intentionally handcuffing the U.S. border patrol has
caused the number of illegal aliens to skyrocket.
In 2013, under
Obama, ICE knowingly released 36,007 convicted criminal aliens, many

illegal immigration (an attempt to protect up to 5 million illegals
from deportation and grant them temporary work authorization) that was
struck down as unconstitutional by the courts.
The 2012 Deferred
Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Obama negligently
encouraged children to travel alone to the U.S. knowing once here they
disappear and later bring their relatives. In 10/16 alone, 6,051
unaccompanied alien children were released into American communities.

October, 2016, in what's an obvious vendetta, Obama's DOJ filed federal
contempt of court charges against Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio for
ignoring a judge's order. The judge ordered Arpaio to stop enforcing
federal immigration laws already on the books. Arpaio refused.
his final months in office, Obama's DHS shut down Operation Phalanx, an
aerial surveillance program where U.S. helicopters helped spot drug
smuggling and illegal crossings at the southern border.

Tuberculosis, Leprosy, Malaria, Measles and Mumps.
Allowed Ebola patients from West Africa to enter the U.S. Two Dallas nurses contracted the disease, but recovered.
