Bank Failures Continue on Barack Obama’s Watch

Three years ago today, I shared news about the skyrocketing number of bank failures during President Barack Obama’s time in office. Today, I share an unbelievable update.

On July 12, 2012, I not only recalled details from a July 13, 2008, piece in which I highlighted the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation‘s list of 33 banks in the United States that had failed since 2000, but I also showed readers how many banks had failed between July 2008 and July 12, 2012. Specifically, I wrote:

The list of U.S. banks that have failed since 2000 has grown from only 33 in July 2008 to nearly 500 today, and the vast majority failed AFTER President Barack Obama took office.

What has happened since publishing that post three years ago? According to this FDIC list, another 67 banks — or almost two per month — have gone under. Included among them was the Feb. 27 failure of Doral Bank in San Juan, Puerto Rico, with more than $1.3 billion in assets at the time of its closure — and the Sept. 13, 2013, failure of  The National Bank of El Paso, with $3.1 billion in assets at the time of its closure, a figure listed atop Wikipedia’s “List of largest U.S. bank failures.”

In total, approximately 600 banks have failed since I began keeping score, and the vast majority — more than 80 percent of them — failed during Obama’s watch. And that’s a problem, because the United States of America can do better and must do better!

Does String of Incidents Show Donald Trump Right?

Evidence of the Obama Administration’s failure to secure our nation’s borders has surfaced in no fewer than three highly-publicized incidents involving illegal immigrants who, after being deported as many as five times, stand linked to the deaths of innocent Americans in 2015. Perhaps, Donald Trump is right, and the United States does have an immigration problem.

The first incident resulted in back-to-back murders the morning of January 31. Suspected of the murders is 31-year-old Victor Manuel Reyes, a man who was sentenced to 5 years for drug possession in 2010, according to Harris County, Texas, court records. Officials also said an immigration hold had been placed on Reyes, because he was here illegally.

The second incident took place June 20 and resulted in the death of Bob Barry Jr., 58, a beloved sportscaster in Oklahoma. Multiple news reports reveal Gustavo Castillo Gutierrez, 26, was charged with causing an accident without a valid driver’s license and drug possession on Tuesday. In addition, authorities confirmed Gutierrez had previously been deported three times.

The most-recent incident took place in San Francisco during the Independence Day weekend and resulted in the fatal shooting of Kathryn Steinle, 32. Accused of the seemingly-random murder is 45-year-old Francisco Sanchez, a man who was reportedly deported five times prior to the incident after settling in the “sanctuary city” by the bay.

Unfortunately, few members of Congress seem interested in immigration reforms and border security changes that might prevent atrocities like those outlined above. Same goes for the White House where President Barack Obama and his lackeys have blood on their hands.
