Charles Krauthammer: Most Scandalous Element of Benghazi Is Hillary Invoking Video When Consoling Victims’ Families

Krauthammer: Most Scandalous Element of Benghazi Is Hillary Invoking Video When Consoling Victims’ Families

Charles Krauthammer expressed outrage over Hillary Clinton’s inappropriate mention of the video that purportedly spurred the Benghazi attacks to the victims’ family members at the transfer of remains ceremony.

A report from Judicial Watch today strongly suggests there was an effort by White House staff to insulate President Obama from criticism and push the narrative an anti-Islam video was responsible for the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton invoked the video at a transfer ceremony of the Benghazi victims after other administration officials were already aware the video played no role in the attack.

Krauthammer told the Special Report panel:

“I find the most scandalous element of this from purely just a human point of view, is the fact that the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, with the bodies of the dead lying in front of her and with the families there, brought up the video and said a video with which we had nothing to do, and then according to one of the family members, when she went over to console that family member, she said ‘We’re going to get the guy who did the video.’ Now, that to me, if she knew that this was a phony story and I’m not sure I can understand how it would be otherwise, is a form of deception that I think is truly scandalous.”

Wild Thing's comment...........

He is right, Hillary is cold and always has been. Interesting how both she and Obama have no real feeling for Americans, it sure shows to be true by their actions and words as well.

Krauthammer: Benghazi “Smoking Document” Shows Obama Engaged in a “Classic Cover-up of a Cover-up”

Krauthammer: Benghazi “Smoking Document” Shows Obama Engaged in a “Classic Cover-up of a Cover-up”

Charles Krauthammer tonight saying newly released emails related to the Benghazi Scandal reveals the Obama White House has engaged in a “classic cover-up of a cover-up.” The new information makes it clear the Obama White House changed the “talking points” on Benghazi to blame it on a video so that it would not be blamed on their failed Foreign Policy.

Wild Thing's comment............

Yes it has been a coverup and a big one and so far Obama and his people are getting away with it.

Benghazi emails suggest White House aide involved in prepping Rice for ‘video’ explanation

Benghazi emails suggest White House aide involved in prepping Rice for ‘video’ explanation

Newly released emails on the Benghazi terror attack suggest a senior White House aide played a central role in preparing former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice for her controversial Sunday show appearances -- where she wrongly blamed protests over an Internet video.

More than 100 pages of documents were released to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. Among them was a Sept. 14, 2012, email from Ben Rhodes, an assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communications.

The Rhodes email, with the subject line: "RE: PREP Call with Susan: Saturday at 4:00 pm ET," was sent to a dozen members of the administration's inner circle, including key members of the White House communications team such as Press Secretary Jay Carney.

In the email, Rhodes specifically draws attention to the anti-Islam Internet video, without distinguishing whether the Benghazi attack was different from protests elsewhere.

The email lists the following two goals, among others:

"To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy."

"To reinforce the President and Administration's strength and steadiness in dealing with difficult challenges."

The email goes on to state that the U.S. government rejected the message of the Internet video. "We find it disgusting and reprehensible. But there is absolutely no justification at all for responding to this movie with violence," the email stated.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said the documents read like a PR strategy, not an effort to provide the best available intelligence to the American people.

"The goal of the White House was to do one thing primarily, which was to make the president look good. Blame it on the video and not [the] president's policies," he said.

The Rhodes email was not part of the 100 pages of emails released by the administration last May -- after Republicans refused to move forward with the confirmation of John Brennan as CIA director until the so-called "talking points" emails were made public.

The email is also significant because in congressional testimony in early April, former deputy CIA director Michael Morell told lawmakers it was Rice, in her Sunday show appearances, who linked the video to the Benghazi attack. Morell said the video was not part of the CIA analysis.

"My reaction was two-fold," Morell told members of the House Intelligence Committee, regarding her appearances. "One was that what she said about the attacks evolving spontaneously from a protest was exactly what the talking points said, and it was exactly what the intelligence community analysts believed. When she talked about the video, my reaction was, that's not something that the analysts have attributed this attack to."

Incidentally, three leading Republicans on Monday night sent letters to the House and Senate foreign affairs committees asking them to compel the administration to explain who briefed Rice in advance of the Sunday talk shows and whether State Department or White House personnel were involved.

"How could former Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, during the five Sunday talk shows on September 16, 2012, claim that the attacks on our compounds were caused by a hateful video when Mr. Morell testified that the CIA never mentioned the video as a causal factor," said the letter, from Sens. Lindsey Graham, of South Carolina; Kelly Ayotte, of New Hampshire; and John McCain, of Arizona.

EPA Vows To Go After Republicans Who Dare Question Agency’s Science - This is NOT the USA I have known!

EPA Vows To Go After Republicans Who Dare Question Agency’s Science

Environmental Protection Agency administrator Gina McCarthy has issued a warning to Republicans who continue to question the integrity of the agency’s scientific data: we’re coming for you.

McCarthy told an audience at the National Academy of Sciences on Monday morning the agency will go after a “small but vocal group of critics” who are arguing the EPA is using “secret science” to push costly clean air regulations.

“Those critics conjure up claims of EPA secret science — but it’s not really about EPA science or secrets. It’s about challenging the credibility of world renowned scientists and institutions like Harvard University and the American Cancer Society,” McCarthy said, according to Politico.

“It’s about claiming that research is secret if researchers protect confidential personal health data from those who are not qualified to analyze it — and won’t agree to protect it,” she added. “If EPA is being accused of secret science because we rely on real scientists to conduct research, and independent scientists to peer review it, and scientists who’ve spent a lifetime studying the science to reproduce it — then so be it.

Wild Thing's comment...........

Abolish the EPA. Whenever they say it is "settled science", it means it's still unsettled and still very controversial.

The EPA has turned into a thuggish organization that extorts money from businesses with so many rules and regulations that they are business killers. They need to go. Her new edict reminds me of the way the old Soviet Union operated.

Yeah, we'll question your science EPA. Yes we will.

Total Idiots! GOP Leadership Plotting to Pass Amnesty in August, May Put AZ, TX in Play for Dems

GOP Leadership Plotting to Pass Amnesty in August, May Put AZ, TX in Play for Dems

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), the House GOP Conference Chair, said that amnesty legislation could come to the floor by August.

Her comments come after multiple House Republicans have ramped up support for amnesty legislation and discussed bills they plan to introduce in the coming months.

“I believe there is a path that we get a bill on the floor by August,” McMorris Rodgers said, according to the Spokesman-Review. “We’re going to have to push that this is a legal status, not amnesty,” she said.

According to NBC 5, Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) "will soon introduce a bill that will establish a path to citizenship for the minor children of illegal immigrants and a guest worker program."

"If the only illegal act they committed was coming into the country without proper documentation we'd put them on a path to legalization," Barton said.

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) said the Republican leadership is "as close as we have ever been" and, though "it is still a big, big, heavy lift... I think we’re going to get there.”

“I think we finally have the policy right,” Diaz-Balart told Roll Call. "And what we’re finding is more and more people out there as they’re seeing it, different aspects of the policy, are starting to say, ‘Hey, that is something that makes sense.’”

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) wrote to House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), who has said he was "hellbent" on passing amnesty and mocked conservative opponents who opposed it, to let him know that he would support amnesty legislation because it would help the party.

“It would be in our country’s national interest as well as the interest of our party if this could be achieved and I want to assure you of my support as this effort goes forward,” King wrote to Boehner.

But studies and polls suggest that amnesty legislation, in addition to lowering the wages of American workers, would go against the political interest of Republicans, contrary to the claims made by amnesty proponents.

According to a Washington Post report, amnesty legislation could put states like Arizona and Texas in play for Democrats.

In addition, two national polls, conducting by NBC News/Wall Street Journal and ABC News/Washington Post, have also found that a plurality of Americans are less likely to vote for candidates who support amnesty legislation.

And when Republicans like Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) promote granting work visas to all of the country's illegal immigrants and allowing them to remain in the country, he is promptly greeted the next day by Hispanic leaders in Wisconsin who call him "offensive."

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who recently said not passing amnesty is "a stain on America's honor," said last year that amnesty proponents would make a final push for legislation after the GOP primaries, many of which are in May and June, are done. Prominent Democrats like Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) have said that this year is the last chance to pass sweeping amnesty legislation.

And though momentum for amnesty legislation has stalled after Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) blasted the GOP leadership's "immigration principles," as amnesty, the Republican leadership seems intent on making that final push for amnesty legislation during this Congress.

Wild Thing's comment..............

It won’t just put Tx and Az in play, it could put the House in play, as well. It is possible that if the GOP passes amnesty, millions and millions of conservatives will stay home and not turn out in 2014 in
protest. This could put many house races, which were once safe into play.

Obama Demands Higher Electricity Costs – Claims U.S. Families Have Paid Too Little For Electricity For Too Long

Obama Demands Higher Electricity Costs – Claims U.S. Families Have Paid Too Little For Electricity For Too Long

The studies -which have previously been highly accurate- now show that electricity prices will soon double. They have risen 30% since President Obama took office. The average family electricity bill is anticipated to be $600/monthly, by the end of Obama’s term…

As temperatures plunged to 16 below zero in Chicago in early January and set record lows across the eastern U.S., electrical system managers implored the public to turn off stoves, dryers and even lights or risk blackouts.

A fifth of all power-generating capacity in a grid serving 60 million people went suddenly offline, as coal piles froze, sensitive electrical equipment went haywire and utility operators had trouble finding enough natural gas to keep power plants running.

The wholesale price of electricity skyrocketed to nearly $2 per kilowatt hour, more than 40 times the normal rate. The price hikes cascaded quickly down to consumers. Robert Thompson, who lives in the suburbs of Allentown, Pa., got a $1,250 bill for January.

“I thought, how am I going to pay this?” he recalled. “This was going to put us in the poorhouse.”

The bill was reduced to about $750 after Thompson complained, but Susan Martucci, a part-time administrative assistant in Allentown, got no relief on her $654 charge. “It was ridiculous,” she said.

The electrical system’s duress was a direct result of the polar vortex, the cold air mass that settled over the nation. But it exposed a more fundamental problem. There is a growing fragility in the U.S. electricity system, experts warn, the result of the shutdown of coal-fired plants, reductions in nuclear power, a shift to more expensive renewable energy and natural gas pipeline constraints. The result is likely to be future price shocks. And they may not be temporary.

One recent study predicts the cost of electricity in California alone could jump 47% over the next 16 years, in part because of the state’s shift toward more expensive renewable energy.

“We are now in an era of rising electricity prices,” said Philip Moeller, a member of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, who said the steady reduction in generating capacity across the nation means that prices are headed up. “If you take enough supply out of the system, the price is going to increase.”

In fact, the price of electricity has already been rising over the last decade, jumping by double digits in many states, even after accounting for inflation. In California, residential electricity prices shot up 30% between 2006 and 2012, adjusted for inflation, according to Energy Department figures. Experts in the state’s energy markets project the price could jump an additional 47% over the next 15 years.

The problems confronting the electricity system are the result of a wide range of forces: new federal regulations on toxic emissions, rules on greenhouse gases, state mandates for renewable power, technical problems at nuclear power plants and unpredictable price trends for natural gas. Even cheap hydro power is declining in some areas, particularly California, owing to the long-lasting drought.

“Everywhere you turn, there are proposals and regulations to make prices go higher,” said Daniel Kish, senior vice president at the Institute for Energy Research. “The trend line is up, up, up. We are going into uncharted territory.”

Actor Tim Allen Slams Socialist CA And Obama Integrity - Good for Tim!

Actor Tim Allen Brings Benghazi To His TV Show, Slams Socialist CA And Obama Integrity

“Last Man Standing” star Tim Allen really is a conservative – he doesn’t just play one on TV.

And it showed his week.

When Allen appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Wednesday to plug his show’s season finale in a fellow ABC venue, his comic intro was a literal man-on-the-street bit about the “socialist” state of California has made itself a magnet for the professionally homeless.

And “Last Man Standing” lines are some of the few places keeping the Benghazi terror attack in the popular mind. A textbook moment came early in Friday’s finale during a set up about individual responsibility — one line of dialogue that probably touched more Americans than 100 Republican National Committee paid ads.

“It’s called integrity,” Allen’s character says. “Something Obama doesn’t have with that Benghazi thing.” It sounds ham-handed on its own like that, but it’s so blended so smoothly into the scene that it comes off as laugh line – not a just a joke, not just a jibe, but a barbed point honed sharp by humor.

BLM Designated 50 Million Acres Open For Solar Development in Nevada - Stupid Solar!!

BLM Designated 50 Million Acres Open For Solar Development in Nevada

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) designated over 50 million acres of public land available for solar development in Nevada, including nearly all of Bunkerville, the home of the Bundy Ranch.

A map of “Proposed Solar Energy Zones” prepared by the federal agency in 2010 revealed that the government deemed over 70 percent of Nevada open to applications to lease public lands for solar projects.

According to the document, 9.6 million acres were available for applications through the “Solar Development Program,” and an additional 40.8 million acres were available, though no action had been taken. The accessible land totals 50.4 million acres, or 71.7 percent of Nevada, which spans 70.3 million acres.

President Barack Obama has prioritized using public lands for green energy projects.

“When President Obama took office, there were no solar projects permitted on public lands,” the Interior Department said in July 2012, announcing a “roadmap” for the development of more than a dozen solar plants. “Since 2009, Interior has approved 17 utility-scale solar energy projects that, when built, will produce nearly 5,900 megawatts of energy—enough to power approximately 1.8 million American homes.”

“Thanks to steps already taken by this administration, renewable energy from sources such as wind and solar have doubled since the president took office,” they said.

The administration said that over 19 million acres of public lands managed by the BLM have “excellent solar energy potential” in California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah.

The Solar Energy Zones (SEZ) map preceded the final “Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement” (PEIS) for solar development in six southwestern states in 2012, which outlined an “initial set” of 17 projects on 285,000 acres of public lands.

BLM spokesman Craig Leff said there is “no connection” between the impoundment of Bundy’s cattle and solar energy development in Nevada.

Wild Thing's comment.........

So totally stupid!! This is going to be horrible, with tons of wonderful land given over to solar panels.

Megyn Kelly Blasts Media For Failing to Ask President Obama About ‘Dead Veterans’ In Phoenix VA Scandal

Megyn Kelly Blasts Media For Failing to Ask President Obama About ‘Dead Veterans’ In Phoenix VA Scandal

Fox News host Megyn Kelly blasted the media for failing to ask President Obama in South Korea earlier today about the Phoenix VA scandal.

Kelly indirectly referenced ABC reporter Jonathan Karl, who asked the president whether he would save Russian Vladimir Putin if he were drowning.

“Something just disturbing happened today, speaking of the president because he, he was asked at a press conference, hey, Vladimir Putin said that if he was drowning, he thinks you would save him,” she said. “I realize it’s a joke. It’s a light-hearted moment. They took time to ask our president about that today, no one bothered to ask him about the dead veterans on American soil at the VA in Phoenix.”

The Phoenix VA is alleged to have kept a secret list of patients who were not formally entered into the VA system. CNN reported at least 40 patients died because of delays in treatment.

Black Bundy Bodyguard: “He’s Not a Racist… I Would Take a Bullet For That Man” (Video)

Black Bundy Bodyguard: “He’s Not a Racist… I Would Take a Bullet For That Man”

Cliven Bundy bodyguard Jason Bullock told CNN yesterday,

“Mr. Bundy is not a racist… I’d take a bullet for the man.”

One of the supporters serving as a bodyguard for Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy during his standoff with federal authorities — and who also happens to be black — said he would still “take a bullet for” Bundy after the rancher made racially inflammatory comments.

CNN’s Dan Simon noticed Jason Bullock, a six-year Army veteran who serves as one of Bundy’s bodyguards, hanging around the at the Nevada ranch. Simon asked Bullock whether he found Bundy’s remarks about blacks and slavery offensive.

“Mr. Bundy is not a racist,” he told CNN. “Ever since I’ve been here, he’s treated me with nothing but hospitality. He’s pretty much treating me just like his own family.”

“I would take a bullet for that man if need be. I look up to him just like I do my own grandfather,” he added. “I believe in his cause and after having met Mr. Bundy a few times, I have a really good feel about him and I’m a pretty good judge of character.”

Wild Thing's comment..........

I am not going to post a lot of posts on this, people saying Bundy is a racist has already been blown way out of proportion and sadly by too many Republicans jumping on the band wagon. I just wanted to share what this man said since he works with and knows Bundy personally. That to me carries more weight then what others say.

Pentagon: Russian Spy Ship, Tug Operating Near U.S.

Pentagon: Russian Spy Ship, Tug Operating Near U.S.

Ships near nuclear submarine base at Kings Bay, Ga.

A Russian intelligence-gathering ship has been operating off the U.S. East Coast and near the Gulf of Mexico for the past month, the Pentagon said Thursday.

“We are aware that the Russian ships Viktor Leonov and Nikolay Chiker are currently operating in waters that are beyond U.S. territorial seas but near Cuba,” said Lt. Col. Tom Crosson, a Pentagon spokesman. “We respect the freedom of all nations, as reflected in international law, to operate military vessels beyond the territorial seas of other nations.”

The Leonov is an intelligence gathering ship outfitted with high-tech electronic spying gear. The Chiker is an ocean-going naval tug that has been accompanying the spy ship on its mission.

Pentagon officials suspect the ships were part of a spying operation since March against the U.S. nuclear missile submarine base at Kings Bay, Ga. and other U.S. military facilities

Both ships were detected operating off the coast of Florida near the U.S. Naval Station Mayport, Fla., which is south of the Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay.

The Russian intelligence gathering coincides with heightened tensions between the United States and Russia over Moscow’s recent military annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea.

An official said it is possible that the electronic spying is related to watching U.S. nuclear missile submarines as part of a Russian nuclear exercise.

According to Russian military press reports, some 10,000 Russian troops and 1,000 pieces of military equipment of the Strategic Missile Forces took part in an exercise April 17 to 19—coinciding with the transit of one of the ships, the Chiker, to Cuba from the coast off northern Florida on April 19.

“The exercises will test the cohesiveness and skills of units and commands in the process of alerting and the achievement of training objectives under various circumstances and in any time of the day,” Russian defense spokesman told Interfax.

The Chiker also is known to support submarines and is equipped with lift capability for servicing Russian submarines.

U.S. officials said in 2012 a Russian Akula attack submarine was detected operating near the East Coast. The Navy denied the sub sailed undetected in the Gulf of Mexico.

Crosson declined to comment further on the Russian naval activities. “It wouldn’t be appropriate for me to talk about the operations of non-U.S. vessels operating beyond U.S. territorial seas,” he said.

Disgrace: Phoenix VA Dumps Sick Veterans Into 'Secret Waiting Lists,' Some Die of Negligence

There is a problem going on down at the VA department in Phoenix, AZ. Approximately 40 vets have unnecessarily died, while waiting in line for services at the Phoenix VA.

At least 40 U.S. veterans died waiting for appointments at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system, many of whom were placed on a secret waiting list. The secret list was part of an elaborate scheme designed by Veterans Affairs managers in Phoenix who were trying to hide that 1,400 to 1,600 sick veterans were forced to wait months to see a doctor, according to a recently retired top VA doctor and several high-level sources ... Internal e-mails obtained by CNN show that top management at the VA hospital in Arizona knew about the practice and even defended it. Dr. Sam Foote just retired after spending 24 years with the VA system in Phoenix. The veteran doctor told CNN in an exclusive interview that the Phoenix VA works off two lists for patient appointments: There's an "official" list that's shared with officials in Washington and shows the VA has been providing timely appointments, which Foote calls a sham list. And then there's the real list that's hidden from outsiders, where wait times can last more than a year.

So this branch of the VA operated an off-the-books list in order to mask atrocious realities and deflect public scrutiny.

According to Foote, the elaborate scheme in Phoenix involved shredding evidence to hide the long list of veterans waiting for appointments and care. Officials at the VA, Foote says, instructed their staff to not actually make doctor's appointments for veterans within the computer system.

Instead, Foote says, when a veteran comes in seeking an appointment, "they enter information into the computer and do a screen capture hard copy printout. They then do not save what was put into the computer so there's no record that you were ever here," he said.

According to Foote, the information was gathered on the secret electronic list and then the information that would show when veterans first began waiting for an appointment was actually destroyed...Foote adds that when veterans waiting on the secret list die, they are simply removed...Foote said that the number of dead veterans who died waiting for care is at least 40.

They went to great lengths to avoid keeping accurate records, and when veterans died of neglect, their secret files simply disappeared. Their paper trail was destroyed.

"That hard copy, if you will, that has the patient demographic information is then taken and placed onto a secret electronic waiting list, and then the data that is on that paper is shredded," Foote said.

"So the only record that you have ever been there requesting care was on that secret list," he said. "And they wouldn't take you off that secret list until you had an appointment time that was less than 14 days so it would give the appearance that they were improving greatly the waiting times, when in fact they were not."

Foote estimates right now the number of veterans waiting on the "secret list" to see a primary care physician is somewhere between 1,400 and 1,600.

"I feel very sorry for the people who work at the Phoenix VA," said Foote. "They're all frustrated. They're all upset. They all wish they could leave 'cause they know what they're doing is wrong.

"But they have families, they have mortgages and if they speak out or say anything to anybody about it, they will be fired and they know that."

Several other high-level VA staff confirmed Foote's description to CNN and confirmed this is exactly how the secret list works in Phoenix.

Foote says the Phoenix wait times reported back to Washington were entirely fictitious. "So then when they did that, they would report to Washington, 'Oh yeah. We're makin' our appointments within -- within 10 days, within the 14-day frame,' when in reality it had been six, nine, in some cases 21 months," he said.

Wild Thing's comment............

This is horrible and unforgivable.

I do know from many Veterans that may vary from hospital to hospital and clinic to clinic. And there are some really good ones, but again I have also heard from Veterans over the years of nightmare stories from them of really horrible treatment and wrong medicine given, long waiting times etc.

Gov. Rick Perry rips ‘out-of-control’ federal government over Texas land dispute

Perry rips ‘out-of-control’ federal government over Texas land dispute

FOX News

Texas Gov. Rick Perry joined his state’s top attorney on Wednesday in blasting the federal Bureau of Land Management over concerns that it may be looking at laying claim to thousands of acres of property in northern Texas.

“The federal government already owns too much land,” Perry told Fox News.

At issue are thousands of acres of land on the Texas side of the Red River, along the border between Texas and Oklahoma. Officials recently have raised concern that the BLM might be looking at claiming 90,000 acres of land as part of the public domain.

On Tuesday, state Attorney General Greg Abbott, who is running to replace Perry, raised the issue in a letter to the BLM director. He also told he’s ready to “go to the Red River and raise a ‘Come and Take It’ flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas.”

Abbott reiterated his comments Wednesday night on "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren."

"At a minimum, (the federal government is) overreaching, trying to grab land that belongs to Texans, or worse, they are violating due process rights by just claiming that this land suddenly belongs to the federal government, swiping it away from our Texans," said Abbott, who threatened court action. "This is just the latest symptom of what seems to be a federal government run amok that is messing in states’ rights and now messing in private property rights."

Perry told Fox News he stands with Abbott on this issue.

“It’s not a dare, it’s a promise that we’re going to stand up for private property rights in the state of Texas,” Perry said, calling the federal government “out of control.”

The federal government is currently in a preliminary review phase, and any action on the land would be years away.

The BLM argues that any land in question was long ago determined to be public property anyway.

“The BLM is categorically not expanding Federal holdings along the Red River,” a BLM spokeswoman said in a written statement on Tuesday.

The spokeswoman referred to a 140-acre plot “determined to be public land in 1986” – an apparent reference to a 1986 federal court case. Texas landowner Tommy Henderson lost 140 acres to BLM in that case, and he claims the agency is now using that decision as precedent to pursue more property.

Perry claimed private property would be affected here, and questioned the BLM’s position.

“Is the federal government going to come back in and say, ‘you know what, Mexico used to own the state of Texas so let’s have a conversation of where the rightful ownership of this is’?” he said.

The debate comes on the heels of a tense standoff earlier this month in Nevada, after BLM tried to round up cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy – the product of a long-running dispute over unpaid grazing fees. Hundreds of states’ rights supporters, some of them armed, showed up to protest, and BLM back off citing safety concerns.

In the Texas matter, the Supreme Court incorporated the Red River as part of the border with Oklahoma nearly a century ago.

It’s unclear how seriously BLM might be looking at laying claim to additional boundary land.

BLM said it is merely in the “initial stages of developing options for management of public lands,” as part of a “transparent process with several opportunities for public input.”

Obama Skipped His Aunt Onyango’s Funeral… Went Golfing Instead

Obama Skipped His AuntOnyango’s Funeral… Went Golfing Instead

Shae had lived in public housing for 5 years. Barack Obama was aware that Zeituni Onyango, and was living in the United States illegally

Auntie Onyango was the first person to greet Obama when he visited Kenya in 1987. He was very fond of her and wrote about her several times in his book, Dreams of My Father.

“Barack, this is our Auntie Zeituni. Our father’s sister.”
“Welcome home,” Zeituni said, kissing me on both cheeks.

He was so fond of her he didn’t attend her funeral.

After Zeituni Onyango, the woman President Obama once called Auntie, died in a South Boston nursing home this month, her closest relatives gathered her belongings at her nearby apartment. There, framed photographs of her with the president covered the wall.

Weeping before a polished wood coffin at her wake this past Saturday, they described Ms. Onyango, the half sister of the president’s father, as “the spirit of the Obama family” and talked about raising money to send her body back to Kenya. Mr. Obama helped pay funeral expenses and sent a condolence note, Ms. Onyango’s family members said, but the president did not attend, as he was golfing.

Over 44,000 Voters Are Registered in Both Maryland and Virginia… But LIAR Obama Says There Is No Voter Fraud

Over 44,000 Voters Are Registered in Both Maryland and Virginia… But Obama Says There Is No Voter Fraud

FOX News

The investigation also found 81 deceased voters that had voter activity since they died.

A crosscheck of voter rolls in Virginia and Maryland turned up 44,000 people registered in both states, a vote-integrity group reported Wednesday.

And that’s just the beginning.

“The Virginia Voters Alliance is investigating how to identify voters who are registered and vote in Virginia but live in the states that surround us,” Alliance President Reagan George told the State Board of Elections.

George acknowledged that the number of voters who actually cast multiple ballots is relatively small. In the case of Maryland and Virginia, he revealed that 164 people voted in both states during the 2012 election.

But George said his group will expand their search for duplicate voters in the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, North Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia and Georgia.

Hundreds of protesters in Manila yesterday in opposition to Obama’s upcoming visit to the Philippines

Police armed with truncheons, shields and a fire hose clashed with more than 100 left-wing activists who rallied at the U.S. Embassy in Manila on Wednesday to oppose a visit by President Barack Obama and an expected security pact that would increase the American military presence in the Philippines.

Some of the protesters carried paper U.S. flags with the message: “Obama not welcome.”

Obama, who landed in Japan on Wednesday, is due to visit South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines over the next five days as part of a wider attempt to “rebalance” and “pivot” toward Asia.

BLM Seizes Texas Rancher’s Land – Without Any Compensation (Video)

BLM Seizes Texas Rancher’s Land – Without Any Compensation

The Bureau of Land Management seized 140 acres from Texas Rancher Teddy Henderson. Henderson says the government did not pay him a dime for it. Henderson told Greta Van Susteren he was ordered to continue to make monthly payments on the land, even though he no longer owned it.

Texas AG Greg Abbott addressed BLM’s intent of confiscating another 90,000 acres telling them, “Come and Take It!”

BLM Eyes 90,000 Acres of Texas Land

After the recent Bundy Ranch episode by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Texans are becoming more concerned about the BLM’s focus on 90,000 acres along a 116 mile stretch of the Texas/Oklahoma boundary. The BLM is reviewing the possible federal takeover and ownership of privately-held lands which have been deeded property for generations of Texas landowners.

IRS Agents Who Didn't Pay Their Taxes Receive Big Bonuses (Video)

IRS Agents Who Didn't Pay Their Taxes Receive Big Bonuses

A new watchdog report finds more than 1,000 IRS workers (who didn't pay their taxes) received not only cash bonuses but extra time off to the tune of 10,582 hours valued at $250,000. 69 employees got raises. If you're outraged, you're not alone.

The IRS was in damage control mode Tuesday after an audit revealed that it paid bonuses to employees who were in trouble over tax issues themselves.

More than $2.8 million, plus thousands of hours of paid time-off, were doled out over two years to employees who had recently been disciplined for various types of misconduct, according to an audit report. About $1 million of that money was given as bonuses to 1,100 employees who were in trouble over tax related issues.

The tax problems include willful understatement of tax liabilities, late payments and under-reporting of income, according to the report issued by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.

The report says that providing awards to employees who fail to pay taxes "appears to create a conflict with the IRS's charge of ensuring the integrity of the system of tax administration."

Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst slammed the U.S. Bureau of Land Management

Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst slammed the U.S. Bureau of Land Management ....BLM ‘Makes My Blood Boil’

HOUSTON, TEXAS--Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst slammed the U.S. Bureau of Land Management in a statement today after Breitbart Texas revealed a federal plan to potentially seize mass tracts of privately-held land. The Lt. Governor said any such plan was “outrageous” and “made [his] blood boil.” The powerful state executive called on the Texas Attorney General to file a lawsuit against the BLM to blunt any federal designs for uncompensated “confiscation” of property.

“The federal government's history of arrogant overreach is approaching a new low with word the Bureau of Land Management is threatening to confiscate up to 90,000 acres of Texas land without compensation," Dewhurst said. "This is a federal land-grab, pure and simple and the BLM has done it before.”

Dewhurst touted his credentials on the matter, citing direct involvement in the 2000 Red River Boundary Compact during his time as the Texas Land Commissioner. The Lt. Governor directly challenged the legality of the BLM to inject itself in an ongoing dispute between states.

The Lieutenant Governor’s statement follows recent, exclusive commentary offered to Breitbart Texas from Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott that any action on the part of the BLM to invalidate private property claims will likely lead to a federal lawsuit.

“If I have to, I will make this our 31st lawsuit against the Obama Administration,” Abbott told Breitbart Texas.

The Texas Attorney General’s Office released a letter submitted to BLM Director Neil Kornze on April 22 demanding more information on any existing plans to stake federal claims to private lands. General Abbott particularly inquired as to what “procedural due process” would be afforded to land owners in the BLM’s crosshairs.

Current BLM documents obtained by Breitbart Texas indicate that a final decision as to whether the tracts of land along the Red River will not be rendered until mid-2017.

“The Red River is a popular recreation area for Oklahomans and Texans alike,” the BLM document states. “Portions of these lands are managed by the BLM and also have values as critical habitat for threatened and endangered species.”

Switch Hitter Democrat Charlie Crist Denies He Was Ever Pro-Life

National Review

There are a lot of Florida Democrats who will probably tell you they care about abortion – er, “abortion rights” or “reproductive rights.” The vast majority of them will, this fall, vote for a man who, during his 2006 race for governor, told a priest in Pensacola that he would sign a bill outlawing abortions except when the mother’s life was at stake. But then he told an AP reporter that he would only sign such a bill if it included exceptions for rape and incest. Also during that race, Charlie Crist attacked his GOP rival for being pro-choice. And as recently as January 2010, “Crist’s Republican U.S. Senate campaign released a statement saying he would ‘fight for pro-life legislative efforts.’”

And now he can come along and say, “even though I am pro-life, which I mean, for life, doesn’t mean I want to tell a woman what to do with her body, and I never have,” and almost every self-proclaimed pro-choice Florida Democrat will nod approvingly.

Because they don’t give a [insert your colorful metaphor here] what the heck Charlie Crist did in the past. They only care that he has a “D” after his name.

Krauthammer: Obama Uttered “the Single Stupidest Remark about Foreign Policy ever Uttered by an American President”

Here is Charles Krauthammer absolutely taking Barack Obama’s Foreign Policy apart. In fact, Krauthammer cites what he says is the “single stupidest remark about Foreign Policy ever uttered by an American President,” uttered, of course, by Barack Obama in 2009. It sent the signal how he would conduct Foreign Policy: “No nation can or should dominate another.”

Obama seemed to think by saying it – it would make it so, and he has governed accordingly. That kind of mindless naivete has emboldened Vladimir Putin and the Russians, as well as Iran, Syria and North Korea.

Democrat U.S. Representative Stephen Lynch on Obamacare: The Worst Is Yet to Come, “It’s Going to Hit the Fan” (Video)

U.S. Representative Stephen Lynch (D-MA) told the Boston Herald there are parts of Obamacare that were delayed because they were unpalatable.

“It’s going to hit the fan… Many will have to pay a 40% tax… It’s the first time in this country’s history that we are going to tax health care.”

Massachusetts representative Stephen Lynch isn’t just worried about the negative impact Obamacare will have on his party’s performance this fall — he also thinks its worst effects on our health-care system are still to come. Lynch, who voted against the Affordable Care Act in 2010, warned that the situation is “going to hit the fan” when the law’s delayed provisions go into effect down the road.

“There are parts of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, that were postponed because they are unpalatable,” he told the Boston Herald. The “Cadillac tax” that goes into effect in a few years and taxes employer health plans over a certain value, he said, will be “the first time in this country’s history that we have actually taxed health care.”

Disgusting Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) Says He Agrees With Jeb Bush on Amnesty

Republican Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said he agreed with former Governor Jeb Bush that illegal immigration can be considered an “act of love”.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) on Monday agreed with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush that illegal immigration can be considered an “act of love.”.

Flake, in a Facebook post, praised Bush for speaking “so humanely and unapologetically about the motivations” of undocumented immigrants in a Fox News appearance that aired earlier this month.

“Truth is, I agree with Jeb, and I applaud him for having the guts to say it,” Flake wrote in the post on Monday. “Growing up here in Arizona, I’ve seen what motivates those who come here illegally. Sure, some come with the intent to do harm or simply to take advantage of our generosity. But many come to find work to feed their families. To lump everyone who crosses the border illegally into the same class is unfair and unproductive.”

Flake asserted his support for a more secure border and called for immigration reform that takes into account U.S. economic needs and a “rational” solution for those already here without documentation.

Obama Admin Wants To Force Companies To Hand Over Employees Personal Info To Union Organizers

Obama Admin Wants To Force Companies To Hand Over Employees Personal Info To Union Organizers

The Obama administration is poised to change regulations to allow for union “ambush elections” in which workers have less time to decide whether or not to join a union — and in which workers’ phone numbers and home addresses are provided to unions.

The administration’s National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) proposed rules would allow for union elections — in which workers at a company vote whether or not to unionize — to be held 10 days after a petition is filed. And what, exactly, would be happening to the unions during those 10 days? The new rules require employers to disclose workers’ personal information, including phone numbers, home addresses, and information about when they work their shifts.

Insiders close to the situation believe the new rules will almost certainly go into effect with few or no fundamental changes.

“The members of the Board went through two days of grueling hearings that went into the evening. They asked plenty of probing questions. But I wonder if any minds were changed at all,” Workforce Fairness Institute spokesman Fred Wszolek, who recently testified at an NLRB hearing in opposition to the rule, told The Daily Caller.

1,200 Students Petition to Block Michelle Obama at Topeka Graduation

1,200 Students Petition to Block Michelle Obama at Topeka Graduation

Michelle Obama’s attendance at the Topeka, Kansas graduation is drawing complaints.
1,200 students have signed a petition to block the First Lady from attending.

If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend.

A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate.

For others, it was the notion that Obama’s speech, tied to the 60th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. Board of Education outlawing segregation in schools, would overshadow the student’s big day.

‘I’m a single mother who has raised him for 18 years by myself,’ said Tina Hernandez, parent of Topeka High School senior Dauby Knight. ‘I’ve told him education is the only way out. This is one of the biggest days of their lives. They’ve taken the glory and shine from the children and put on Mrs. Obama. She doesn’t know our kids.’

Hernandez was among the parents and students who spoke Thursday at a school board meeting and urged district officials to reconsider their decision to invite Obama. Ron Harbaugh, spokesman for the Topeka school district, said Friday discussions were under way to work out the logistics and planning for the event, including how many tickets each family would be allotted.

‘We will have a clearer picture of what’s going on,’ Harbaugh said.

Harbaugh said officials asked the president or first lady to speak at graduation as a tie-in with the anniversary of the Brown decision, which outlawed school segregation. The district plans to place a priority on seating students and their families, and could broadcast the event to an overflow room at a hotel adjacent to the graduation arena for those unable to find a seat inside.

That’s not good enough for Taylor Gifford, 18, who started an online petition on Thursday evening to urge the district to reconsider its plans. She and the more than 1,200 people who had signed it expressed concern that Obama’s visit would limit the seating options for family and friends.

Wild Thing's comment..........

I agree with the students. for Michelle to but in on their special day is wrong especially if it means the students family and friends cannot attend. Plus putting the attention on being about Michelle is sickening, the kids deserve better then that is their day not hers. Her speech will be all about her BS.

Rev. Franklin Graham: If You Want to Practice Sharia Law, Go Back to Where You Came From (Video)

Rev. Franklin Graham: If You Want to Practice Sharia Law, Go Back to Where You Came From

“We should be afraid of sharia law” in America, and Muslims here who want to practice sharia should go back to where they came from, “to those nations that recognize sharia law,” said Rev. Franklin Graham, head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

In a recent interview with the Charlotte Observer, Graham was asked, “Some say you demonize Islam, and Christians in this country have opposed building a mosque or are worried about Sharia law. Isn’t it –”

Graham, who oversees the international Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse, said, “We should be afraid of Sharia law. We should be absolutely afraid of it. No question about it, because there’s no tolerance in Sharia law. It persecutes those that do not believe in Islam.”

Charlie Daniels: Harry Reid Should Be In Jail For ‘Impersonating An American’

Charlie Daniels: Harry Reid Should Be In Jail For ‘Impersonating An American’

On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called supporters of the Bundy ranch “domestic terrorists” and questioned their patriotism. Country music star Charlie Daniels responded the same day with a tweet saying Reid should be in jail for “impersonating an American.”

“Harry Reid you should be put in jail for impersonating an American,” he tweeted.
A number of people agreed.

“AMEN Charlie!! I second that motion,” one person said.

“Please keep the light shined on this cockroach @SenatorReid & his punk kids too @CharlieDaniels -you’ve got a powerful torch to do it,” another person added.

Others suggested Obama also be thrown in jail. One Twitter user said that Reid would have been hung for his actions in the days of the wild west.

As we reported earlier today, Reid told the Las Vegas Review-Journal those who supported Bundy are “domestic terrorists” armed with fully automatic rifles. Additionally, he accused Bundy of not paying taxes and not recognizing the United States.

The Nevada Democrat also said he spoke with Attorney General Eric Holder, FBI leaders and Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie about the situation with the Bundy ranch. While speaking with reporters, he indicated that a task force is being set up, and hinted of further action.

Scum Harry Reid Doubles Down: Bundy Ranch Supporters “Violent Terrorist Wannabes”

Harry Reid Doubles Down: Bundy Ranch Supporters “Violent Terrorist Wannabes”

REID: Bundy doesn’t believe that the American government is valid, he believes that the United States is a foreign government.

He doesn’t pay his taxes. He doesn’t follow the law. He doesn’t pay his fees.

And if anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed — 600 people came in, armed. They had practiced, they had maneuvered, they knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women in children — in fact one retired sheriff from Arizona boasted that he put women and children so that they would get hit first.

So, 600 people. If there were ever an example of people who were domestic, violent terrorist wannabes, these are the guys. And I think that we should call it that way.

Very Concerning Obama deliberately emboldening America’s enemies

Obama deliberately emboldening America’s enemies

FOX News

All Americans should be aware of some very disturbing events that speak to the state of terrorism, the strength of al Qaeda and our nation’s security. In light of the danger unfolding around us, we also need to question whether or not President Obama’s administration is serious about confronting what is clearly a gathering storm, or whether, in fact, his policies are encouraging those who wish to harm us.

One of the more shocking events illustrating the growing strength of al Qaeda is the release of a video this week showing what CNN reports as “the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years.” It’s what experts think is a recent gathering of the terrorist group’s leadership and more than 100 fighters in Yemen.

For an administration that does not hide its eagerness to use drones to kill terrorists, experts and journalists alike were wondering whether our intelligence community knew about this meeting, and if so, why didn’t they take the opportunity to kill the most dangerous of them with one drone strike?

The terrorists on the video seem strangely unconcerned with their safety, as though there was no need for them to feel at risk. When asked about the brazenness of the gathering, Rep. Mike Rogers, Michigan Republican and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, noted on CNN: “We think that they’re feeling empowered. The less pressure you put on them, the more they take that as a victory … .”

It now appears al Qaeda was “on the run” in the same way you were able to keep your doctor and hospital.

Whether we didn’t know about the gathering, or did and chose to do nothing, it’s another signal to the beasts around the world that no one is home in Washington, D.C.

The dangerous circus created by the Obama regime’s rules doesn’t stop there.

Sept. 11 victims’ families are asserting they think the Obama administration is deliberately sabotaging the trials at Guantanamo, and insist the FBI is meddling in the cases, according to reports in the Free Beacon.

Unfortunately, both Mr. Obama and Attorney General Eric H. Holder have a history with the American people that not only doesn’t engender trust, but suggests efforts that are directly harming the nation and the American people, while pushing an agenda benefiting the terrorists.

In the article, two Sept. 11 victims’ family members told reporters of their suspicion regarding an FBI investigation into defense lawyers: “They had to know this would have some effect on the proceedings here,” one family member said. “Were I a very suspicious person, some could even say that was done purposely to derail these hearing and force it back into federal court,” said another. “It looks like a well-orchestrated snafu.”

Debra Burlingame is the sister of Charles F. “Chic” Burlingame III, pilot of American Airlines flight 77, which crashed into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001. She came to the public’s attention after becoming a passionate and determined advocate on behalf of all Americans in the aftermath of the attacks, which took her brother’s life and 2,976 others.

With the continuing bizarre decisions by Mr. Obama and the Holder Department of Justice, I asked Ms. Burlingame what she thought of the growing suspicion and concern by the families and the possibility that the Obama administration was deliberately sabotaging the process. Here’s what she told me:

“Someone, in violation of a D.C. District Court Protective Order, smuggled Khalid Shaikh Mohammed’s 34-page jihadi diatribe against America out of Gitmo and into the possession of the Huffington Post and BBC-TV.

“Smuggling this out of Gitmo is a criminal act. I find it repulsive that the attorneys defending the men who murdered 3,000 people are now trying to leverage an FBI investigation of what may be their own legal misconduct into an advantage for their clients,” said Ms. Burlingame.

Moreover, Ms. Burlingame didn’t mince any words about Mr. Holder and his involvement in the ongoing sham: “These defense attorneys are doing everything possible to delay this trial, to turn the proceedings into a sham, so that Eric Holder, their ideological soulmate, can tell the American people that military commissions are inferior courts,” continued Ms. Burlingame

“I would like to remind the public that Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and his co-conspirators told a lawfully convened military tribunal in December 2008 that they wished to plead guilty and be executed. Barack Obama’s first act as president in 2009 was to shut down that proceeding and put these cases into legal limbo for another 2 years.

“It finally reconvened in 2011, and in the time since then, an army of defense lawyers has stalled this trial with hundreds of frivolous motions, all aimed at making a mockery of the court,” she said.

Regarding where things stand now, I asked Ms. Burlingame if it is reasonable to think Mr. Holder is deliberately undermining our efforts to get justice at Gitmo.

“Our own attorney general has repeatedly made public statements expressly undermining the court’s authority . His statements have been disgraceful. So, it is perfectly understandable that 9/11 family members would suspect that Eric Holder is colluding to sabotage this trial.”

It is a horrible thing when Americans have to consider the possibility that the leadership of this country is purposefully acting in a manner that benefits our nation’s enemies. Yet, when we look around the world, those feeling and acting empowered are the bullies, tyrants and terrorists.

The American president does have power, including the sort that signals to the world’s beasts that they can do as they please.

Thank you Debra!

Business and Job-Killer Obama Punts on Keystone Pipeline Until After Midterm Elections

‘Ridiculous’: Administration punts on Keystone, Obama faces Dem revolt

FOX News

The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections.

Republicans, as well as red-state Democrats who want the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline approved, slammed the administration for the delay. Democrats even threatened to find ways to go around the president to get the project approved.

“It’s absolutely ridiculous that this well over five year long process is continuing for an undetermined amount of time,” Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., said in a statement.

Republican Nebraska Rep. Lee Terry called the decision “shameful,” noting that another spring construction season will come and go without the project.

The administration had been in the middle of a 90-day review period for federal agencies assessing an environmental study from the State Department.

But the State Department said Friday it is giving agencies "additional time" to weigh in, in part because of ongoing litigation before the Nebraska Supreme Court which could affect the pipeline's route. If the route changes, officials made clear the State Department reserves the right to conduct another environmental impact study to include more public comments, which could delay the process more.

Further, the department said officials need to go over the "unprecedented number" of new public comments -- roughly 2.5 million of them -- received during a separate comment period that ended in early March.

"The Permit process will conclude once factors that have a significant impact on determining the national interest of the proposed project have been evaluated and appropriately reflected in the decision documents," the department said.

Keystone supporters in Congress were furious with the decision. Just days earlier, 11 Democratic senators had written to President Obama urging him to make a final decision by the end of May, complaining that the process "has been exhaustive in its time, breadth and scope."

With the extension, the administration effectively has turned down that request. One of the letter's signatories, Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., who is in a tough re-election fight this year, said the decision amounts to an "indefinite delay" of the project.

"This decision is irresponsible, unnecessary and unacceptable," she said. "By making it clear that they will not move the process forward until there is a resolution in a lawsuit in Nebraska, the administration is sending a signal that the small minority who oppose the pipeline can tie up the process in court forever. There are 42,000 jobs, $20 billion in economic activity and North America's energy security at stake."

Landrieu, as chairwoman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, also threatened to "take decisive action to get this pipeline permit approved."

This could put pressure on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to allow a vote on legislation to either force the president to approve the project or make a decision by a certain date.

There is a wide bipartisan support in the Senate. Last year, the chamber voted 62-37 on a nonbinding amendment that called for the pipeline's approval.

A congressional source told Fox News that at this point, the administration is not giving a hard deadline, and the process appears to be open-ended.

The administration has faced pressure from both sides of the debate on the pipeline. Republicans largely are united in support of the project, but Democrats are sharply divided. Moderate Democrats, as well as labor unions, are pressing the State Department to give the thumbs-up, calling the project a jobs engine and a way to boost energy security. But environmental interests, and lawmakers allied with them, are strongly opposed -- citing its alleged impact on climate change and possible health risks.

One such environmentalist, California billionaire Tom Steyer, has been vowing to back vulnerable Democrats with big money if they oppose the pipeline. He called the latest announcement "good news on Good Friday for those who oppose Keystone as not being in our nation's best interest."

The State Department has jurisdiction because the Canada-to-Texas pipeline crosses the U.S.-Canada border. The drawn-out process has frustrated America's allies in Canada. Canadian Ambassador to the U.S. Gary Doer told Fox News after the announcement Friday that every day the project is delayed is a lost opportunity to put people to work.

He also said the oil is coming "whether it be by rail or truck."

In pointing to the Nebraska court case, the State Department was referring to a state judge recently overturning a law allowing the current path through the state.

But Sen. John Hoeven, R-Neb., charged that the strategy here "is clearly defeat through delay."

WOW! Harry Reid: Cliven Bundy Supporters Are “Domestic Terrorists” (Video)

Harry Reid: Cliven Bundy Supporters Are “Domestic Terrorists”

The Review Journal

U.S. Sen. Harry Reid on Thursday called supporters of Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy “domestic terrorists” because they defended him against a Bureau of Land Management cattle roundup with guns and put their children in harm’s way.

“They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said during an appearance at a Las Vegas Review-Journal “Hashtags & Headlines” event at the Paris. “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.”

The BLM shut down its weeklong roundup of Bundy’s cattle Saturday after an armed confrontation with dozens of militia members who had traveled to Southern Nevada from across the country and from neighboring states.

Harry Reid is so over the top and out of line and should be ashamed of himself but he won't be ever, he has no soul.

LMAO Jay Carney Says " there has never been a more transparent administration"

Jay Carney there has never been a more transparent administration

MAJOR GARRETT: The Obama administration came to Washington promising transparency. In your view, has the administration fallen short of this goal?

JAY CARNEY: I think there’s no question, I’ve covered the previous two administrations, and know a thing or two about ones before that, there has never been a more transparent administration. We provide more information about, for example, the WAVES [the White House "Workers and Visitors Entry System"] records, something that no administration has ever done. The WAVES records are collected by the Secret Service, individuals who are cleared in for White House access. Those have never been released before, no administration has ever released them.

And I think it’s fair to say that the release of that information has made this White House far more transparent than any other [administration]. That doesn’t mean it’s perfectly transparent. It creates headaches for us, and ridiculous stories on Fox News and elsewhere about, for example, saying Hillary Clinton was only in the White House five times, while Secretary so-and-so was there this many times.

Obama Requests $182 Million to Push New Gun Control Laws

Obama Requests $182 Million to Push New Gun Control Laws

According to The Washington Free Beacon, President Barack Obama’s budget proposal also calls for $1.1 billion to “protect Americans from gun violence—including $182 million to support the president’s ‘Now is the Time’ gun safety initiative.”

Attorney General Eric Holder said on Friday that gun tracking bracelets are something the Justice Department (DOJ) wants to “explore” as part of its gun control efforts.

When discussing gun violence prevention programs within the DOJ, Holder told a House appropriations subcommittee that his agency is looking into technological innovations.

“I think that one of the things that we learned when we were trying to get passed those common sense reforms last year, Vice President Biden and I had a meeting with a group of technology people and we talked about how guns can be made more safe,” he said.

“By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or something that you might wear, how guns can be used only by the person who is lawfully in possession of the weapon.”

“It’s those kinds of things that I think we want to try to explore so that we can make sure that people have the ability to enjoy their Second Amendment rights, but at the same time decreasing the misuse of weapons that lead to the kinds of things that we see on a daily basis,” Holder said.

The Justice Department has requested $382.1 million in increased spending for its fiscal year 2014 budget for “gun safety.”

Included in the proposal is $2 million for “Gun Safety Technology” grants, which would award prizes for technologies that are “proven to be reliable and effective.”

President Barack Obama’s budget proposal also calls for $1.1 billion to “protect Americans from gun violence—including $182 million to support the president’s ‘Now is the Time’ gun safety initiative.”

A recent innovation allows a gun owner to only unlock a safe with a fingerprint scan and an “RFID-equipped bracelet.”

Others have suggested manufacturing GPS tracking and RFID chips into every gun. RFID chips transmit location data and are used by law enforcement agencies to send automatic alerts if a weapon moves away from the tracker, indicating that the gun is lost or stolen.

Obama’s Now Is the Time initiative would ban “assault weapons” and limit ammunition magazines to 10 rounds. can click on this link of Obama's and scroll down the page for more information.

There are a lot of democrats that own guns, I just don't see how even their blind following of Obama there would be a majority vote of gun control etc.about guns.

Jimmy Carter to President Obama: Reject the Keystone XL Pipeline Because of Climate Change

Jimmy Carter to President Obama: Reject the Keystone XL Pipeline Because of Climate Change

Carter to Obama: 'You know better'

Former President Jimmy Carter urged President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry to reject construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline on Wednesday, warning that the project would worsen the damaging effects of climate change and saying their decision would define their legacy "on one of the greatest challenges humanity has ever faced."

"As you deliberate the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, you are poised to make a decision that will signal either a dangerous commitment to the status quo, or bold leadership that will inspire millions counting on you to do the right thing for our shared climate," explained a letter signed by Carter and nine other former recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize. The letter appeared as a newspaper advertisement on Wednesday morning.

The proposed project would transport crude oil harvested from tar sands in Canada to refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast. Supporters have said it would be a boon for job creation and domestic energy production, but opponents have warned that oil extraction from the tar sands -- among the most carbon-intensive methods of energy production -- would greatly expand if the project is approved.

"You are among the first generation of leaders that knows better -- leaders that have the knowledge, tools, and opportunity to pivot our societies away from fossil fuels and towards smarter, safer and cleaner energy," the letter said. "History will reflect on this moment and it will be clear to our children and grandchildren if you made the right choice....A rejection would signal a new course for the world's largest economy. You know as well as we do the powerful precedent that this would set. This leadership by example would usher in a new era where climate change and pollution is given the urgent attention and focus it deserves in a world where the climate crisis is already a daily struggle for so many."

In affixing his name to the letter, Carter becomes the first former president to weigh in against the proposed project. Former President George W. Bush has called building the pipeline a "no-brainer," and former President Bill Clinton has said "we should embrace it and develop a stakeholder-driven system of high standards for doing the work."

Feds Leave Trail of Wreckage Destroyed Water Tanks, Shot Bulls, Ran Over Tortoise Dens

Feds accused of leaving trail of wreckage after Nevada ranch standoff

FOX News

The federal agency that backed down over the weekend in a tense standoff with a Nevada rancher is being accused of leaving a trail of wreckage behind.

Fox News toured the damage — allegedly caused by the Bureau of Land Management — which included holes in water tanks and destroyed water lines and fences. According to family friends, the bureau’s hired “cowboys” also killed two prize bulls.

“They had total control of this land for one week, and look at the destruction they did in one week,” said Corey Houston, friend of rancher Cliven Bundy and his family. “So why would you trust somebody like that? And how does that show that they’re a better steward?”

The BLM and other law enforcement officials backed down on Saturday in their effort to seize Bundy’s cattle, after hundreds of protesters, some armed, arrived to show support for the Bundy family. In the end, BLM officials left the scene amid concerns about safety, and no shots were fired.

The dispute between the feds and the Bundy family has been going on for years; they say he owes more than $1.1 million in unpaid grazing fees — and long ago revoked his grazing rights over concern for a federally protected tortoise. They sent officials to round up his livestock following a pair of federal court orders last year giving the U.S. government the authority to impound the cattle.

The feds, though, are being accused of taking the court orders way too far.

On a Friday night conference call, BLM officials told reporters that "illegal structures" on Bundy's ranch -- water tanks, water lines and corrals -- had to be removed to "restore" the land to its natural state and prevent the rancher from restarting his illegal cattle operation.

However, the court order used to justify the operation appears only to give the agency the authority to "seize and impound" Bundy's cattle.

"Nowhere in the court order that I saw does it say that they can destroy infrastructure, destroy corrals, tanks ... desert environment, shoot cattle," Houston said.

Bundy's friends say the BLM wranglers told them the bulls were shot because they were dangerous and could gore their horses. One bull was shot five times.

But Houston said the pen holding the bull wasn't even bent. "It's not like the bull was smashing this pen and trying tackle people or anything," he said. "The pen is sitting here. It hasn't moved. No damage whatsoever. Where was the danger with that bull?"

Plus he said BLM vehicles appear to have crushed a tortoise burrow near the damaged water tank. "How's that conservation?" he asked.

The BLM has not yet responded to a request for comment on these allegations.

Louisiana Democrats Call Bible “Offensive” After Legislators Move To Make It State’s Official Book

Louisiana Democrats Call Bible “Offensive” After Legislators Move To Make It State’s Official Book

Louisiana legislators advanced a bill Thursday that would make the Holy Bible the official Louisiana state book, despite concerns the move could prompt litigation.

“You cannot separate Christianity from the Bible,” said state Rep. Wesley Bishop, D-New Orleans, a lawyer and the son of a preacher. “If you adopt the Bible as the official state book, you also adopt Christianity as the state religion … We are going to open ourselves up to a lawsuit.”

The House Municipal, Parochial and Cultural Affairs Committee voted 8-5 to recommend the legislation to the full House.

State Rep. Thomas Carmody, R-Shreveport, countered that naming an official state book doesn’t equate to establishing a state religion, which isspecifically prohibited in the U.S. Constitution.

“The Holy Bible would be appropriate for the state of Louisiana,” he said, particularly given the state’s strong religious ties. [...]

Other legislators said Carmody’s bill was not inclusive of all types of religions practiced by Louisiana residents.

“As an elected official on this committee and in this building, some of my constituents from the city of New Orleans and around the state will find this type of legislation offensive,” said state Rep. Jared Brossett, D-New Orleans.

“You don’t think it’s offensive to some citizens of this state to select the Bible as the official state book?” asked Rep. Ebony Woodruff, D-Harvey. Woodruff suggested Carmody add “all books of faith like the Quran, the Torah.”

Carmody said he thought the Bible was “the appropriate symbol.” He said the state can have more than one state book, just as it has more than one official jelly.

Several States Seeing Health Care Premiums Jump By More Than 50% Because of Obamacare

Several States Seeing Health Care Premiums Jump By More Than 50% Because of Obamacare

The Washington Free Beacon

A new survey of health insurance brokers shows premiums in several states have increased more than 50 percent, Fox News reported Monday.

“So this was the largest percentage increase in any quarter since they’ve been doing the survey, but a 12 percent, 11 percent increase on average across all the states, that puts it at the upper end of any increase we’ve seen for decades,” said Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a former adviser for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Reporter Jim Angle said the survey laid the blame on Obamacare, and Delaware, Florida and California are among the states with the highest premium hikes. Requirements of the new health care law have driven up the costs of the benefits.

“Ten essential health benefits along with more than 20,000 pages of regulations, the current increases are for the first policies issued under Obamacare in 2014, but insurance companies will soon have to set rates for 2015 as well, and analysts fear the increases now mean even bigger increases next year,” he said.

Gottlieb added the administration no longer bothers to peddle the false promise that Obamacare would save families $2,500 per year.

Benghazi Mother At San Diego Protest: Obama and Hillary Lied And It Makes A Difference

Benghazi Mother At San Diego Protest: Hillary Lied And It Makes A Difference

SAN DIEGO, CA — Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke via satellite to attendees of San Diego’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on Apr. 11, just days after canceling plans to attend in person. Two protest groups gathered outside the San Diego Convention Center for the conference, but for two different reasons.

One group of 10-15 demonstrators, promoting a single-payer healthcare system, stood across from the Convention Center. While playing a recording of the folk tune “Medicare for All,” the group spoke to passing pedestrians for approximately two hours.

The other protest, directly in front of the Convention Center, included over 40 protestors expressing their opposition to Hillary’s handling of the events surrounding the September 11, 2012 attack on the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.

Organized by the recently-formed group The Difference Matters, those walking the protest line included Benghazi victim Sean Smith’s mother, Pat Smith, and a friend of Ty Woods, another Benghazi victim.

Obama’s HHS Nominee Proved Her Loyalty to Clinton by Digging Through a Dead Vince Foster's Trash

Obama’s HHS Nominee Proved Her Loyalty to Clinton by Digging Through a Dead Vince Foster's Trash

Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius.

Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster.

Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators about how senior officials had seized and disposed of files relating to the first couple’s controversial investments in the Whitewater Development Corporation, a failed real estate venture.

Clinton spokeswoman Dee Dee Myers admitted that then-White House counsel Bernard Nussbaum, who had recovered documents relating to the Whitewater controversy from Foster’s office after his death, did not turn over the documents to the Clinton family’s personal attorney, contrary to what White House officials had claimed. Nussbaum had actually given the documents to Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff, who placed them in a White House safe for five days before being turned over to the family attorney.

Under questioning, Sylvia Mathews and her colleagues denied impeding a police investigation into Foster’s death after his body was found in a northern Virginia park. According to the New York Times, Mathews testified “in laborious detail about what she had found in Mr. Foster’s garbage on the night he died.”

That experience may come in handy as she prepares to oversee the implementation of Obamacare.

Wild Thing's comment...........

I hope they bring this up at her hearing but I have my doubts they will. Vince Foster was murdered and there was plenty of proof, it is another one of those deaths that ill and Hillary got away with.

IRS Seizing Tax Refunds Of Children, Grandchildren Of Debtors, Decades After Debt

IRS Seizing Tax Refunds Of Children, Grandchildren Of Debtors, Decades After Debt

FOX News

They’re paying out billions in fraudulent claims and then going after people who they have no business chasing

The old maxim that you can’t hold children responsible for the sins of their parents no longer applies — at least as far as Washington is concerned.

Congress quietly passed legislation in 2011 lifting the former 10-year statute of limitations on money owed to the government, allowing Uncle Sam to collect debts going back decades. The measure also allows the government to collect from debtors’ children and grandchildren, according to Fox News.

Now, “some 400,000 Americans may see their tax refund checks grabbed by the government,” Fox reported.

Former Justice Department attorney J. Christian Adams called it “classic abuse” during his Friday appearance on “The Kelly File.”

“Imagine it,” he told Fox News Host Megyn Kelly. Instead of a refund check, “you get a letter from the IRS. And it says, ’40 years ago, your parents got a disability payment that we happened to overpay. … So now we’re taking it out of your tax refund.’”

Think it can’t happen in America? Think again. Fox also reported:

" Awoman named Mary Grice, whose father died when she was 4 years old in 1977, leaving her mother with five children. Thirty-seven years later, the Social Security administration is claiming that it overpaid someone in her family, but it isn’t sure whom, and is going after Ms. Grice for the alleged debt.

When Megyn Kelly asked Adams what the chances are of the government dropping the debt against Grice, Adams answered, “Zero.”

“This is an administration that loves to suspend laws when they’re inconvenient and not enforce certain laws,” Adams said. “Let’s see if they do it here.”

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren took up the Grace case in her “Off the Record” comment Friday.

In no uncertain terms, she said, the government “stole” $2,996 from Grice’s tax refund for the alleged Social Security overpayment 37 years ago. But it gets even better.
“Social Security told her [Grice], they had no records explaining the debt,” Van Susteren said, comparing the matter to the State Department’s “ho-hum” response to the discovery that it had lost $8 billion in funds while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state.

Federal Judge: Eric Holder ‘Disrespectful,’ and Has Set ‘A Dangerous Precedent’

Federal Judge: Eric Holder ‘Disrespectful,’ and Has Set ‘A Dangerous Precedent’

Washington, D.C., federal judge rebuked U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday for overstepping his authority and disrespecting the judicial process.

“I regret that, before we voted on the amendment, Attorney General Holder instructed assistant United States attorneys across the nation not to object to defense requests to apply the proposed amendment in sentencing proceedings going forward,” Judge William Pryor Jr. said at a public hearing, according to the National Review. “That unprecedented instruction disrespected our statutory role ‘as an independent commission in the judicial branch,’ to establish sentencing policies and practices under the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984.”

Eric Holder pointing at GohmertA day earlier, U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, accused Holder of ignoring subpoenas issued by the House Judiciary Committee.

Obama’s procrastinator-in-chief had been expected to appear before the Sentencing Commission to defend his breach of protocol, but he never showed up. Since the sentencing guidelines themselves were never at issue, the commission unanimously passed the amendment to reduce non-violent drug dealers’ prison terms by 17 percent. But Holder’s attempts to sidestep the constitutional process remain a sticking point for Pryor and other critics.

“The law provides the executive no authority to establish national sentencing policies based on speculation about how we and Congress might vote on a proposed amendment,” Pryor said, according to The Blaze. “We do not discharge our statutory duty until we vote on a proposed amendment, and Congress, by law, has until Nov. 1 to decide whether our proposed amendment should become effective.”

When fellow Commissioner Jonathan Wroblewski tried to defend Holder by calling his behavior was lawful and respectful, Chief Judge Rosario Hinojosa rebuffed him, accusing Holder of setting “a dangerous precedent.”

“For those committed to the rule of law, the question…it’s whether the Attorney General, the chief law enforcement officer in the United States, is committed to following the law as it exists, or instead, as he wants and speculates it might become,” Georgetown law professor William G. Otis said in a statement, National Review reported.

Rest assured, Holder’s role as an administration lightning rod will not soften any time soon.

Another Government Grab Battle Waged Against Property Owners In Colorado

Another Government Grab Battle Waged Against Property Owners In Colorado

Andy and Ceil Barrie have been battling the Summit County commissioners who decided to seize the Barrie’s property. Similar to the Bundy Ranch battle in recent news, these government officials give lame excuses to justify their unconstitutional property grabs. This constant overreach at the hands of bureaucracies are an assault against American taxpayers, along with an assault against our constitutional rights in the pursuit of happiness (granted to us by our Creator).

BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. – ”They’re spending us to death,” said landowner Andy Barrie.

He is not talking about property taxes, inflation or even the cost of skiing in glitzy ski country. Rather, he’s talking about the legal fight he and his wife have been waging to save their pristine piece of mountain property — with breathtaking views of Colorado’s high country — from being taken over by the county through eminent domain.

Their battle is a unique test of private property rights. [...]

The isolated parcel is surrounded by 2.2 million acres of White River National Forest, and is essentially an island of private property. It includes an old mining cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold mine. The area is popular with hikers.

The couple’s trouble started when the U.S. Forest Service took them to task for using a utility vehicle to drive from their main residence to their cabin. They say they never went off-road, and petitioned for the path to be declared a county road.

The county, though, responded by trying to buy the Barries’ higher-elevation property in order to protect and preserve it as open space. The Barries, who never had any plans to develop it, did not want to sell.

That’s when the county pulled their trump card.

Unbeknownst to the Barries, the previous owner had remodeled the cabin without permits. So Summit County commissioners voted to condemn the property for wiring and plumbing (even though the cabin has none) and filed for eminent domain.

“I understand that we are all trying to save these beautiful mountains and make them accessible to everyone, but you know that property has been sitting there since President Garfield signed our land patent, and we’re not doing anything bad there,” Ceil Barrie said.

Last week, the two sides participated in required, formal mediation with a judge. Summit County, which refused interview requests, released a statement saying: “Both parties engaged in productive negotiations in pursuit of a voluntary settlement regarding the purchase. … We are optimistic that a resolution will be reached within a matter of weeks, if not days.”

The Barries’ hopes are dimming. Asked if recent mediation pointed to a way for the Barries to keep the land in the family name and avoid eminent domain, Andy Barrie responded flatly, “No, they’re taking it.” [...]

Further, they're concerned that should Summit County seize control of their 10-acre tract, the county will simply trade the property with the U.S. Forest Service for valuable land closer to town.

"They collude together to basically screw up their citizens. ... Sooner or later, we're going to run out of money, but we wanted to fight the good fight and let people know our story and what their government is up to," Andy Barrie said.

Fox News checked with the White River National Forest division of the U.S. Forest Service about the Barries' case. Spokesman Bill Kight said via email: "In the case of this or any on-going legal matter (including eminent domain petitions) with any federal, state, county or local government the Forest Service will not be issuing any statement during such legal proceedings."

The Barries have spent more than $75,000 to date. The mediation judge recently advised them the financial figure could double in the coming months.

"I even promised my daughter she could get married up here, and now all that's gone," Andy Barrie said.

BLM Will Release Confiscated Cattle To Rancher

8 News NOW

Las Vegas News on 8

A deal has been reached between Bundy family leaders and the BLM, but not without some very tense moments.

Armed Bundy family leaders met with BLM officers Saturday afternoon in Mesquite to discuss the fate of the Bundy’s cattle that the feds removed from BLM land, over the past week. The cattle are being held at a holding area in Mesquite.

Prior to the meeting, hundreds of protesters, some armed, tried storming the BLM’s cattle gate, but weren’t successful. The crowd was urged to wait 30 minutes and give both sides a chance to talk. An agreement was reached that the cattle will be released to the Bundy family later Saturday.

At one point, I-15 was closed in both directions, about seven miles south of Mesquite, because protesters had blocked the freeway. Nearly two dozen police officers and a SWAT unit were at the scene to keep the peace and assist the BLM enforcement officers to safely leave the area.

Protesters have been gathering all week in support of Bundy, who has been locked in a legal battle for the past 20 years over grazing rights with the federal government

It was announced Saturday morning that Sheriff Douglas Gillespie, Bundy and the BLM were able to reach an agreement over the cattle the BLM has already removed from the federal property.

The agency said it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy’s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said she was thrown to the ground by an officer.

With more Bundy supporters pouring in from around the country, safety concerns began to grow.

Sheriff Gillespie has been negotiating with Bundy behind the scenes for months and reached a tentative agreement Friday night, though Bundy insisted the sheriff come to his ranch to finalize the arrangement face-to-face.

In its statement, the BLM said its actions this past week were progress in enforcing two court orders to remove the trespassing cattle from public land.

The agency director also asked that everyone involved in the dispute remain peaceful and law-abiding.

The BLM had offered to pay Bundy for the cattle already confiscated, sources said, but the protesters wanted the cattle returned to Bundy.

Over 90 Percent of New York Gun Owners Refusing To Register Their Firearms As Required By New Gun Control Law

Over 90 Percent of New York Gun Owners Refusing To Register Their Firearms As Required
By New Gun Control Law


With the April 15 deadline for gun registration under the SAFE Act fast approaching, estimates indicate over 90 percent of gun owners have yet to comply.

Making matters worse for elected officials–and Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) in particular–is the fact that many law enforcement officers at various levels have openly stated that they will not enforce SAFE Act requirements.

According to, while the state waits for the “registration of 1 million firearms designated as ‘assault weapons’ under the NY SAFE Act,” leaks believed to be coming from within the New York State Police indicate the number registered to date is “as low as…3,000-5,000 firearms.”

This is figure is impossible to verify beyond a shadow of doubt because a provision in the SAFE Act forbids law enforcement from releasing registration figures.

Breitbart News reported that SAFE Act protesters gathered on March 16 and burned "nearly a thousand gun registration forms." And on March 28 we reported that NY State Police decided not to enforce the SAFE Act's 7-round magazine limit.

In January of this year The Oneida Daily Dispatch reported that Assemblyman Bill Nojay (R-Pittsford) suggested that law enforcement is not going to be eager to go after those who refuse to comply: "The rank and file troopers don't want anything to do with it. [And] I don't know of a single sheriff upstate who is going to enforce it."

The Real Story Behind The Bundy Ranch Harassment

The Real Story Behind The Bundy Ranch Harassment

by Dana Loesch

By now you’re familiar with the standoff between the federal government, i.e. the Bureau of Land Management, and 67 year-old rancher Cliven Bundy. (If not, check the backstory and my radio interview with him here.) The BLM asserts their power through the expressed desire to protect the endangered desert tortoise, a tortoise so “endangered” that their population can no longer be contained by the refuge constructed for them so the government is closing it and euthanizing over a thousand tortoises. The tortoises, the excuse that BLM has given for violating claims to easements and running all but one lone rancher out of southern Nevada, is doing fine. In fact, the tortoise has lived in harmony with cattle in the Gold Butte, Clark County Nevada for over a hundred years, or as long as Cliven Bundy’s family has lived on the land as ranchers. In fact, the real threat to it is urbanization, not cattle.

A tortoise isn’t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67 year-old rancher. They want his land. The tortoise wasn’t of concern when Harry Reid worked BLM to literally change the boundaries of the tortoise’s habitat to accommodate the development of his top donor, Harvey Whittemore. Whittemore was convicted of illegal campaign contributions to Senator Reid. Reid’s former senior adviser is now the head of BLM. Reid is accused of using the new BLM chief as a puppet to control Nevada land (already over 84% of which is owned by the federal government) and pay back special interests. BLM has proven that they’ve a situational concern for the desert tortoise as they’ve had no problem waiving their rules concerning wind or solar power development. Clearly these developments have vastly affected a tortoise habitat more than a century-old, quasi-homesteading grazing area. If only Clive Bundy were a big Reid donor.

BLM has also tried to argue that the rules have changed, long after Bundy claims he secured rights and paid his dues to Clark County, Nevada. BLM says they supersede whatever agreement Bundy had prior; they demanded that he reduce his living, his thousand-some-odd head of cattle down to a tiny herd of 150. It’s easy for the government to grant itself powers of overreach, but it doesn’t make it right. Many bad things are done in the name of unjust laws. Just look at Obamacare. This heavy-handed tactic has run the other ranchers from the area and now Bundy is the last one. He’s the last one because he stood up to the federal government.

So why does BLM want to run Bundy off this land and is Reid connected?

I discussed this on “Kelly File” ................

*UPDATE: Those who say Bundy is a “deadbeat” are making inaccurate claims. Bundy has in fact paid fees to Clark County, Nevada in an arrangement pre-dating the BLM. The BLM arrived much later, changed the details of the setup without consulting with Bundy — or any other rancher — and then began systematically driving out cattle and ranchers. Bundy refused to pay BLM, especially after they demanded he reduce his heard’s head count down to a level that would not sustain his ranch. Bundy OWNS the water and forage rights to this land. He paid for these rights. He built fences, established water ways, and constructed roads with his own money, with the approval of Nevada and BLM. When BLM started using his fees to run him off the land and harassing him, he ceased paying. So should BLM reimburse him for managing the land and for the confiscation of his water and forage rights?

Cliven Bundy’s problem isn’t that he didn’t pay — he did — or that his cattle bother tortoises — they don’t — it’s that he’s not a Reid donor.

**One last thought: For those conservatives saying that since BLM arrived in the late 90s, it’s the law now, well, so is Obamacare.

Woman Throws Shoe at Hillary Clinton (Video)

A woman threw a shoe at Hillary Clinton on Thursday as the former secretary of state was delivering a speech at a Las Vegas hotel, but Clinton dodged it and continued with her remarks, a U.S. Secret Service spokesman said.

Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie said the shoe-thrower was not a ticketed guest for Clinton’s speech at the Mandalay Bay hotel and had been spotted by Secret Service agents and hotel security guards before the incident.

“As agents and hotel security approached her she threw a shoe and was immediately taken into custody by the Secret Service and hotel security,” Ogilvie said.

Footage of the incident broadcast by KTNV-TV showed Clinton, 66, crouching to dodge an object as she stood on stage.

If you thought signing up for Obamacare was hard, try canceling!!

If you thought signing up for Obamacare was hard, try canceling!!

Obamacare exit strategy brings endless waits on hold

Washington Times

I never wanted to be a pawn in President Obama’s absurd and irresponsible attempt to mandate, regulate and complicate the American health care system. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much of a choice.

I was a casualty of Mr. Obama’s Big Lie. You know the one: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” By the time my plan vanished, the only individual health insurance plans available had been captured by the tentacles of Obamacare.

Signing up for insurance under Obamacare was harder than making sense of Donald Trump’s hair. It took more than 20 attempts over four days just to get on the “Health Insurance Marketplace” website and shop for insurance. The plan I found most similar to my canceled plan cost nearly $1,000 more a year, and my deductible increased from about $2,000 to more than $5,000. So I was forced to pay almost twice as much for a whole lot less insurance.

It’s surprising there’s not a link to buy a solid-gold eight-track player on the site — everything else for sale in Mr. Obama’s marketplace is also ridiculously overpriced and pretty much useless.

Signing up for Obamacare was a tremendous hassle. But even that experience was a joy compared with what I went through to cancel my coverage.

On the same day that I was counted as one of the 7.1 million Americans that Mr. Obama energetically exploited during his Obamacare victory lap, I was able to enroll in a group insurance plan through my employer. I was free from the shackles of my terrible Obamacare plan — or so I thought.

When I tried to terminate my plan, my insurance company told me that plans purchased through the marketplace could only be canceled through the marketplace. That started a brutal three-day fiasco.

After trying multiple times to sign on to to terminate my plan, only to find the site was down or I wasn’t allowed to log in, I gave up on the website and opted for the personal approach, the telephone. I was put on hold for 15 minutes and forced to listen to an insufferable synthesizer-Peruvian pan flute duet that the United Nations would likely consider an act of torture by the United States against its own citizens.

When someone finally got around to picking up the phone, I was told that only a “specialist” could cancel a plan. So I was transferred, where I waited and waited. A prerecorded message came on about every 10 minutes recommending that I call back after the open-enrollment period ended on March 31 should I need to make changes to my account.

It was April 3.

After more than two hours on hold, the call was cut off owing to “technical difficulties.” Two hours wasted by the president’s dumb idea.

The next day, after more failed attempts to log on to the online marketplace, I gave the phone another try. Twenty minutes later, someone picked up. I asked if she could help me cancel my plan. “No.” I asked if there was a direct line or another number to reach someone who could help me cancel my plan. “No.” I asked if she knew when the website would be working to allow me to login and cancel my plan online. “No.”

“Listen,” she said, “All I can do is help you sign up. That’s all anyone here can do. I can’t help you cancel, and I can’t help you make changes to your account. You’ll have to talk to a specialist for that.” When I told her that I waited more than two hours for a specialist the day before, she promised that someone would be with me quickly.

That, it turned out, was just another in the long line of Obamacare lies.

I waited on hold to speak with a specialist for two more hours, suffering through the synthesizer-pan flute duet until the line was again disconnected.

After nearly five hours on the phone waiting to speak with someone, I’m convinced that an Obamacare specialist is like Bigfoot or Norm’s wife on “Cheers.” I’ve heard the tale, but there’s no proof they actually exist.

Ultimately, on my umpteenth try, three days into the process, I was finally able to get into the site, wade through several pages and cancel my plan — although, unlike with most insurance plans, I couldn’t get a prorated refund on the days I had paid for but wouldn’t need. One last $100 slap in the face.

It was difficult to sign up for Obamacare, but nowhere near as hard as it was to leave the program. That raises a serious question: Was Obamacare designed to inflate its numbers by holding enrollees hostage in the program once they signed up? From my experience, that certainly seems to be the case.

I HATE Obama and I HATE that he is forcing this Obamacare or the penalty of not having it on my country.

Democrat Elijah Cummings Faces Up to Five Years in Federal Prison

Democrat Elijah Cummings Faces Up to Five Years in Federal Prison

On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing:

“Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional agency scrutiny, communication records between your staff and IRS officials – which you did not disclose to Majority Members or staff – indicates otherwise,” wrote the Chairman and five Subcommittee Chairmen of the Oversight Committee. “As the Committee is scheduled to consider a resolution holding Ms. Lerner, a participant in responding to your communications that you failed to disclose, in contempt of Congress, you have an obligation to fully explain your staff’s undisclosed contacts with the IRS.”

This is not good news for Cummings.

According to Cummings could go to prison for five years for obstructing Congressional proceedings.

from The American Journal:

Whoever, with intent to avoid, evade, prevent, or obstruct compliance, in whole or in part, with any civil investigative demand duly and properly made under the Antitrust Civil Process Act, willfully withholds, misrepresents, removes from any place, conceals, covers up, destroys, mutilates, alters, or by other means falsifies any documentary material, answers to written interrogatories, or oral testimony, which is the subject of such demand; or attempts to do so or solicits another to do so; or

Whoever corruptly, or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication influences, obstructs, or impedes or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede the due and proper administration of the law under which any pending proceeding is being had before any department or agency of the United States, or the due and proper exercise of the power of inquiry under which any inquiry or investigation is being had by either House, or any committee of either House or any joint committee of the Congress—

Shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both.

Lois Lerner Emails Implicate and Confirm Top Democrat Elijah Cummings in Colluding With IRS to Target Conservative Group

Lois Lerner Emails Implicate and Confirm Top Democrat Elijah Cummings in Colluding With IRS to Target Conservative Group

Conservative activist and founder of True the Vote, Catherine Engelbrecht, filed an ethics complaint against far left Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) in February. Engelbrecht accused Cummings of harassment and intimidation.

Catherine Engelbrecht testified before Congress in February.
She was visited by FBI, IRS, ATF, and OSHA after she filed for tax exempt status for her voters rights group.

Engelbrecht said her testimony before Congress and Cummings,“Frankly, to sit before my accuser and be silent in the face of what he did was unconscionable.”

Wednesday the Oversight Committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) accused Elijah Cummings of colluding with the IRS to target True the Vote.

National Review

The war between Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa and the committee’s ranking member, Elijah Cummings, rages on.

Issa on Wednesday accused the Maryland Democrat of colluding with the Internal Revenue Service in its targeting of the conservative nonprofit group True the Vote, whose founder, Catherine Engelbrecht, said she received multiple letters from Cummings in 2012 and personal visits from the IRS and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Explosives. Engelbrecht’s True the Vote is one of the many conservative groups that claims to have been improperly targeted by the IRS while it scrutinized the applications of tea-party groups.

In a letter signed by his five subcommittee chairmen, Issa raised the possibility that Cummings coordinated with the IRS, “surreptitiously” contacting the agency to request information about True the Vote.

E-mails unearthed in the course of Issa’s investigation into the IRS’s inappropriate targeting of right-leaning groups show that in January 2013, a member of Cummings’s staff contacted the IRS asking for any publicly available information on True the Vote. The matter was discussed by IRS officials that included Lois Lerner, the former exempt-organizations chief who retired in the wake of the targeting scandal. One of Lerner’s deputies, Holly Paz, subsequently sent the organization’s 990 forms to Cummings and his staff — not an illegal disclosure of taxpayer information, though sources say the exchange of such information was not routine.

Awesome GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert Strikes a Nerve with Attorney General Eric Holder: “You Don’t Want to Go there, Buddy”

When Gohmert was questioning Holder today on Capitol Hill, he mentioned that Holder didn’t seem to care he was held in contempt of Congress for not providing evidence in the “Fast & Furious” Gun-running scandal. Holder’s response was to say disrespectfully, “You don’t want to go there, buddy. You don’t want to go there, okay?”

Gohmert shot back, “I don’t want to go there?”

Holder: “No!”

Holder explained that Gohmert should not assume being held in contempt was not a big deal to him. Gohmert made clear that people are “known by our fruits” – and said Holder has still never turned over the documents for which he was held in contempt!

Mark Levin Calls Jeb Bush 'Act of Love' Remarks 'Utterly Irresponsible,' 'Typical Liberal Tripe'

On his Monday radio show, conservative commentator Mark Levin criticized former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) for his remarks calling illegal immigration a “act of love” and downplaying the violation of law as being only a misdemeanor.

“I mean, I listen to this,” Levin said. “Ladies and gentlemen, do you know how many laws there are out there – federal, state, local laws that are not felonies but are misdemeanors and have a real impact on American citizens? This is an utterly irresponsible statement. Every violation of law is not a felony. And by the way, it’s not a felony because Congress said it’s not a felony. But it is a misdemeanor. But here we have really typical liberal tripe justifying that which is illegal, justifying that which is destructive.”

Schumer: We'll Have Amnesty in 2014 Thanks to Liberal Republicans

Schumer: We'll Have Amnesty in 2014 Thanks to Liberal Republicans

Ever the happy warrior of the left, Sen. Chuck Schumer is not giving up on his pipe dream: amnesty for illegal aliens in 2014.

Appearing on MSNBC on Monday, Schumer said he thinks it still can happen this year thanks to a group of liberal Republicans—what he thinks is the majority of Republicans—who will stand by silently, letting amnesty pass while voting against it in the end. He called it the “vote-no, pray-yes caucus,” meaning that certain Republicans would publicly claim they are against amnesty, vote against it in the end, but behind the scenes either fight for its passage or let it sail through Congress.

“Most people are for immigration reform,” Schumer said on MSNBC. “Most Republicans, they’re in the vote-no, pray-yes caucus, they want it to pass as long as they don’t have to vote for it,” he said on MSNBC. “I still think we have a chance to pass it this year.”

Schumer even added that he thinks the “vote-no, pray-yes” Republicans will lose the 2016 election if they don’t grant amnesty to illegal aliens, and that they won’t do so in 2015.

“The leadership of the caucus realizes one thing, they won’t do it in 2015,” Schumer said. “And [that] most certainly means they’re going to lose in 2016.”

Schumer’s remarks came as former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said that for illegal aliens to illegally cross the U.S. border is an “act of love.”

Well if Republicans go along with amnesty then the Republican party might as well kiss itself goodbye for any further elections. It will also show the world that our laws mean nothing.

WASHINGTON (CBS Houston/AP) — A White House aide says President Barack Obama plans to attend a memorial service Wednesday at Fort Hood — the site of last week’s shooting rampage.

The memorial is also the same day Obama will reportedly attend a Democratic fundraiser in Houston for House and Senate candidates.

The Associated Press obtained an invitation to the April 9 event where tickets start at $16,200 a person and go up to $64,800 for a couple. Democratic leaders Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are also expected to attend.

House Committee to File 3 Criminal Charges Against IRS Official Lois Lerner… And Contempt Charges

House Committee to File 3 Criminal Charges Against IRS Official Lois Lerner… And Contempt Charges

The House Ways and Means Committee will vote this week to formally ask the DOJ to pursue criminal charges against former IRS employee Lois Lerner. The House Oversight Committee will vote on Thursday to hold Lerner in contempt.

The House Ways and Means Committee will vote this week to formally ask the Justice Department to pursue criminal charges against former IRS employee Lois Lerner, an official at the center of Republican probes of the matter.

The committee will mark up a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday accusing Lerner of committing three crimes relating to the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups seeking tax exempt status, a Republican staffer said.

The controversy erupted in May when Lerner admitted the agency given extra scrutiny to tea party groups – an acknowledgement that has cost a handful of agency employees their jobs, including its commissioner, and prompted a series of congressional investigations.

This action is separate of plans from House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa to hold a contempt vote against the former exempt organizations division head on Thursday.
Lerner has become the focus of congressional efforts to investigate what happened at the IRS, with Republicans accusing her of sharing private taxpayer data and obsessing over the Citizens United Supreme Court case.

House Speaker John Boehner confirmed to Fox News' Megyn Kelly Monday that lawmakers plan to press the Justice Department to consider a criminal case against ex-IRS official Lois Lerner for "misleading the Congress."

Boehner also said if Lerner does not cooperate soon by providing information on the IRS targeting scandal, the House would hold her in contempt of Congress.

"Somebody at the IRS violated the law," Boehner said on "The Kelly File."

"Whether it was Lois Lerner or not, we'll find out."

Muslim Brotherhood Launches US Political Network to Promote Sharia Law

Investors Business Daily

Muslim Brotherhood Launches US Political Network to Promote Sharia Law

The radical Muslim Brotherhood has built up a political network that seeks to turn Muslims into a voting bloc. The group is hoping to institutionalize favorable policies like Shariah law in the US.

With an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamist voting bloc.

‘Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016,” said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who’s Who of Brotherhood front groups.

“We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community.”

USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of “institutionalizing policies” favorable to Islamists — that is, Shariah law.

This development bears careful monitoring in light of the U.S. Brotherhood’s recently exposed goal to wage a “civilization jihad” against America that explicitly calls for infiltrating the U.S. political system and “destroying (it) from within.”

The subversive plan was spelled out in hundreds of pages of founding archives that the FBI confiscated from a Brotherhood leader’s home in the Washington suburbs after 9/11.

Translated from Arabic, the secret documents listed a number of Brotherhood front organizations — some of which just happen to make up the newly formed USCMO.

Front and center is the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, the catalyst behind this Trojan horse jihadist political party.

CAIR is linked in federal criminal court documents to the terrorist group Hamas, the Brotherhood's Palestinian branch. CAIR's chief Awad, who announced the USCMO at the National Press Club, is so radioactive, the FBI refuses to do outreach with him and his so-called Muslim-rights group until it can "resolve whether there continues to be a connection between its executives and Hamas."

Equally troubling is the Muslim American Society, another founding member of the USCMO. MAS was formed as "the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States," a 2007 Justice Department court filing states. A 2011 MAS press release praised Osama bin Laden as "a visionary who believed in an Islamic state in Afghanistan."

The list of bad actors doesn't end there. The chairman of America's new Islamist party is none other than Oussama Jammal, who once headed the notorious Bridgeview Mosque in Chicago.

One of that mosque's leaders was arrested and jailed for funneling millions to Hamas. And one of its most honored guests was bin Laden's spiritual mentor, the late Palestinian cleric Abdullah Azzam. Some of Azzam's relatives are Bridgeview members.

"The walls were covered with Hamas posters and recruiting literature showing masked gunmen brandishing automatic weapons. . . . You could see daggers plunged into Jewish hearts wrapped up in American flags," said Steve Emerson, describing the mosque in his book "American Jihad." "They even had a library filled with terrorist videos."

Wild Thing's comment...........

God help us and our country. This is all because of Obama and his catering to his Muslim brotherhood pals.

Dictator Obama To Force Federal Contractors To Provide Compensation Data Based On Sex, Race

Obama To Force Federal Contractors To Provide Compensation Data Based On Sex, Race

FOX News

Obama is imposing his policies directly on federal contractors.

This week, he will sign an executive order that would prohibit federal contractors from retaliating against employees who discuss their pay with each other. The prohibition on the wage “gag rules” is similar to language in a Senate bill aimed at closing a pay gap between men and women. That legislation is scheduled for a vote this week, though it is not likely to pass.

In addition, Obama on Tuesday will direct the Labor Department to adopt regulations requiring federal contractors to provide compensation data based on sex and race. The president will sign the executive order and the presidential memo during an event at the White House where he will be joined Lilly Ledbetter, whose name appears on a pay discrimination law Obama signed in 2009.

This week’s steps showcase Obama’s efforts to take action without congressional approval and illustrate how even without legislation, the president can drive policy on a significant segment of the U.S. economy. At the same time, it also underscores the limits of his ambition when he doesn’t have the backing of Congress for his initiatives.

Covered California’s Executive Director Peter Lee testified before a Congressional committee about the successes of Covered California.

“It takes, in our mind, three things for an exchange to work. It takes having affordable health plans delivering quality care, it takes effective marketing outreach, and it takes effective enrollment,” Lee said.

Trey Gowdy to Democrat Jim Moran: The Notion That You Can Make $174,000 In This Country And Be Underpaid, Is Laughable!

Trey Gowdy to Democrat Jim Moran: The Notion That You Can Make $174,000 In This Country And Be Underpaid, Is Laughable!

Lib Dem Jim Moran argues that you can't make it on $174K. He told the website Roll Call,

'I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid"..."I understand that it's widely felt that they underperform, but the fact is that this is the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world."

Congressman Trey Gowdy pounces. "I know a lot of people in the world who are underpaid, in fact, I live with one who is a school teacher" Gowdy tells Greta, talking about his school teacher wife. The congressman points out that no one is forcing you to run for congress every 2 years. He says, "If you don't want to do it, then don't run. But the notion that you can make $174,000 in this country and be underpaid, is laughable. We better off than 99.9% of the people that we claim to work for'

Good for Trey Gowdy, I love the way he speaks up.

Marine Who Served Three Combat Tours In Iraq Facing Eviction For Displaying American Flag

Marine vet says he faces possible eviction over U.S., USMC flags on apt. balcony

Marine Who Served Three Combat Tours In Iraq Facing Eviction For Displaying American Flag

Manuel E. Vega, a Marine Corps veteran who served three combat tours in Iraq, says he faces possible eviction from his apartment if he does not remove two flags – one U.S. flag and one Marine Corps flag — from his balcony. The Salem Run Apartment Homes in Fredericksburg, Va., initially warned Vega about the flags, then said they would be willing to work something out, but, Vega told Thursday, nothing has been done and the complex has not backed down.

Vega told Examiner he has been flying the flags since October, but apartment managers recently decided to take action.

A notice warning Vega of the flags was tacked to his front door, he said.

“Although we appreciate and commend your patriotism, as a reminder per your lease agreement, you cannot have anything attached to the railing or any part of the building,” the warning letter, dated March 21, said.

The letter also says that only patio furniture, “flowers and/or holiday decorations” are the only things allowed on the balcony.

Vega served over eight years in the Marine Corps and rose to the rank of Sergeant, having received a Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, Combat Action Ribbon, Presidential Unit Citation, Navy Unit Citation and a Good Conduct Medal.

Wild Thing's comment............

IMO any land owner, building owner, property owner that is against our Flag in any way there is something seriously wrong with them. Not hanging or displaying our Flag should never be part of a lease. But this is just how I feel so obviously in our country it means nothing anymore. Why do people live in the USA and hate our Flag I will never understand.

God bless our Veterans and I wish any of them that want to display the Flag should be allowed to do so.

Corrupt Former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton ... Her State Department “Misplaced” $6 Billion Under Hillary Clinton

State Department Misplaced $6B Under Hillary Clinton

IG report reveals incomplete, lost contract files worth $6B

The State Department misplaced and lost some $6 billion due to the improper filing of contracts during the past six years, mainly during the tenure of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, according to a newly released Inspector General report.

The $6 billion in unaccounted funds poses a “significant financial risk and demonstrates a lack of internal control over the Department’s contract actions,” according to the report.

The alert, originally sent on March 20 and just released this week, warns that the missing contracting funds “could expose the department to substantial financial losses.”

The report centered on State Department contracts worth “more than $6 billion in which contract files were incomplete or could not be located at all,” according to the alert.

“The failure to maintain contract files adequately creates significant financial risk and demonstrates a lack of internal control over the Department’s contract actions,” the alert states.

The situation “creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt to conceal evidence of illicit behavior by omitting key documents from the contract file,” the report concluded.

The State Department’s inability to properly file its paperwork is causing most of the losses, according to the report.

The IG “found repeated examples of poor contract file administration” over the years, the report said.

Contracts related to the U.S. war in Iraq, for instance, could not be produced in 33 out of 115 instances, according to the report.

“A recent OIG audit of the closeout process for contracts supporting the U.S. Mission in Iraq revealed that contracting officials were unable to provide 33 of 115 contract files requested in accordance with the audit sampling plan,” the report states.

The value of the 33 “missing files” totaled $2.1 billion, according to the report.

Additionally, 48 of the 82 contract files that were produced “did not contain all of the documentation required by” internal regulations, according to the report.

The 48 “incomplete files” were worth another $2.1 billion, according to the report.

A further audit of the department’s Bureau of African Affairs found that administrators “were unable to provide complete contract administration files for any of the eight contracts that were reviewed.”

These contracts were worth $34.8 million.

The investigation also found instances in which a company owned by the spouse of a contractor employee was not properly documented.

“In the case of work undertaken by OIG’s Office of Investigations, one investigation revealed that a contract file did not contain documentation reflecting that modifications and task orders were awarded to the company owned by the spouse of a contractor employee performing as a Contract Specialist for the contract,” the report states.

The contract in question was worth $52 million.

The report outlines several other instances in which contracts worth great values were mishandled.

Eric Holder thinks it is OK for his Justice Department to use airplane for 27 personal trips

Eric Holder thinks it is OK for his Justice Department to use airplane for 27 personal trips

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related.

“My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me,” Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. “There was this notion that we’ve taken — I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it and figured out from the time period that they were looking, we took not hundreds, but 27 personal, four combined — official and nonpersonal trips — and none of the trips that I took or that the [FBI] director took ever had an impact on the mission capability of those airplanes.”

Hillary Clinton Cancels Appearance In San Diego After Benghazi Protests Planned

Hillary Clinton Cancels Appearance In San Diego After Benghazi Protests Planned…

Hillary Clinton cancelled her upcoming visit to San Diego in the midst of a planned protest.

Clinton will be the keynote speaker for the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on April 11. She was originally going to deliver the speech in person, but will now be seen by satellite.

The three day event will be being held at the San Diego Convention Center with 700 people expected to attend.

Jan Iverson created an organization called “The Difference Matters” to protest Mrs. Clinton’s quest for the presidency, because of her role in Benghazi.

“She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don’t want her here,” said Iverson.

Pat Smith lost her son, Sean Smith, during an attack in Benghazi and plans to be at the center of the protest, Iverson said.

“Working with her is gratifying, and it spurs on what we are doing,” Iverson said.

Dr. Ted Mazer believes people should put politics aside, because Clinton is well versed on the hottest topic at the conference.

Wild Thing's comment...........

She is so horrible, I will never forget what she said about Benghazi and how she has treated the loved ones of those murdered.

Obama Spent $700 Million Your Tax Dollars Promoting Obamacare

Obama Spent $700 Million Your Tax Dollars Promoting Obamacare

Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law.

“We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.”

However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million.

Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the Washington Health Benefit Exchange, for television, radio, print, and social media ads. [...]

Illinois recently paid the online satirical site the Onion up to $300,000 for online banner ads. One ad linking to the Cover Illinois website read: “Man without health insurance forced to sell action figures to pay for medical bills. Don’t sell your action figures.”

Liar Obama Claims 7 Million “Signed Up” For Obamacare, BUT Study Shows Only 858,000 Previously Uninsured Have Actually Paid

Obama Claims 7 Million “Signed Up” For Obamacare, BUT Study Shows Only 858,000 Previously Uninsured Have Actually Paid

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America’s health care system ‘a lot better’ in a Rose Garden press conference.

But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality.

Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Terrible!!! Air Force Removes Bible From POW/MIA Missing Man Table Display at Patrick Air Force Base in Florida

Air Force Removes Bible From POW/MIA Missing Man Table Display at Patrick Air Force Base in Florida

On March 14 Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh told members of the House Armed Services committee that there was no war on religious liberty.

“The single biggest frustration I’ve had in this job is the perception that somehow there is religious persecution inside the United States Air Force,” the general told lawmakers. “It is not true.”

If that’s true, perhaps Gen. Welsh could explain why a Bible was removed from a POW/MIA Missing Man Table at Patrick Air Force Base in Florida. The removal of the Good Book was first reported by the Gannett-owned newspaper Florida Today.

Base officials confirmed to Fox News Monday that the entire Missing Man Table display had been removed from a dining hall because of the Bible. A press statement said the inclusion of the Bible ignited “controversy and division.”

Missing Man Tables are a long honored military tradition. The tables serve as a reminder of the plight of brave Americans who are missing in action or who are being held prisoner of war. The display includes a white table cloth setting with an inverted glass, a plate with lemon and salt, a single rose, a candle and a Bible.

Each item is an integral part of the Missing Man Table & Honors Ceremony, according to the National League of Families of American Prisoners and Missing in Southeast Asia.

“The Bible represents the strength gained through faith in our country, founded as one nation under god, to sustain those lost from our midst,” the official ceremony document states.

However, someone at Patrick Air Force Base objected to the Bible’s placement on the table.

The following is the Air Force’s explanation of what happened:

“The 45th Space Wing deeply desires to honor America’s Prisoners and War (POW) and Missing in Action (MIA) personnel. Unfortunately, the Bible’s presence or absence on the table at the Riverside Dining Facility ignited controversy and division, distracting from the table’s primary purpose of honoring POWs/MIAs. Consequently, we temporarily replaced the table with the POW/MIA flag in an effort to show our continued support of these heroes while seeking an acceptable solution to the controversy. After consultation with several relevant organizations, we now intend to re-introduce the POW/MIA table in a manner inclusive of all POWs/MIAs as well as Americans everywhere.”

Wild Thing's comment...........

I continue to be shocked at what has been happening with our awesome military.So many things that are occurring and only because of showing weakness in the face of a few objecting. This kissing up to the progressives including the ones in our military is disgusting and unforgivable.

Non Conservative Chris Christie Defends Gushing Over Obama Says He Would Do It Again

Non Conservative Chris Christie Defends Gushing Over Obama Says He Would Do It Again


New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who’s considering a 2016 White House run, listed some names for “good” potential Republican presidential candidates, including two non-governors.

In an interview to air Monday night on Fox News Channel, Christie also hit back at critics who blasted him for appearing too close with President Barack Obama after Superstorm Sandy, which came just days before the 2012 presidential election. [...]

One reason why some Republicans are hesitant to back Christie stems from his open embrace of Obama right after Superstorm Sandy demolished parts of the Jersey Shore in late October 2012. Christie’s praise of the President–about a week before Election Day–infuriated many Romney loyalists who argue Christie helped bolster Obama’s appearance before voters went to the polls.

“First of all there was not one person with possible exception of Paul Ryan in American who worked harder for Mitt Romney,” Christie said. “I was the first governor to come out and endorse him in fall of 2011, I traveled to 26 states for him.”

“So some people have…a very short memory. Fortunately, Mitt Romney doesn’t,” Christie continued. “And the fair people don’t. When that crisis hit, I was asked, has the President been responsive? Has the President been there to help your people? And my answer was yes. And Megyn if I had to do it again I would say the exact same thing because it was the honest answer.”

I really have zero respect for this jerk Chris Christie.

Admiral Says Obama Told Military Leaders: Accept Gays In Military Or Step Down

Admiral Says Obama Told Military Leaders: Accept Gays In Military Or Step Down

In a meeting with the heads of the five service branches in 2010, President Obama offered the leaders a choice: Support my efforts to end the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, or resign.

In a video obtained by BuzzFeed via a Freedom of Information Act request, Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Robert Papp revealed that Obama was unwilling to compromise with service leaders over DADT during a meeting in 2010. “We were called into the Oval Office and President Obama looked all five service chiefs in the eye and said, ‘This is what I want to do.’ I cannot divulge everything he said to us, that’s private communications within the Oval Office, but if we didn’t agree with it — if any of us didn’t agree with it — we all had the opportunity to resign our commissions and go do other things,” he said.

Papp talked about the meeting during a Q&A session with U.S. Coast Guard Academy cadets following a leadership address to the corps on Jan 8. The admiral was asked how officers should respond to policies that they disagreed with but were required to enforce. “If I disagree morally with [a policy], it’s my obligation to voice that, regardless of the risk it might give my career,” he said. “I’ve been in those situations. I’ve been fortunate to have good leaders that have appreciated that.” Using himself as an example, Papp said it was OK for leaders to “not be thrilled” with a certain regulation, but if they didn’t “see anything terribly wrong with it,” it was their job as officers to support and enforce it.

5 Ways Obamacare Is Ruining Lives

5 Ways Obamacare Is Ruining Lives

As the Obamacare enrollment period draws to a tentative close – and you never know when the period will close, given President Obama’s apparent willingness to manipulate the calendar repeatedly – horror stories about the Affordable Care Act mount.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) originally maintained, “All of [the horror stories] are untrue, but they’re being told all over America”; he now says that he never called such horror stories lies. It’s a smart backtrack, given the wide variety of Obamacare horror stories that continue to pile up day after day. Across the nation, premiums are blowing up; according to a December analysis by USA Today, more than half of the counties under the federal Obamacare exchange “lack even a bronze plan that’s affordable by the government’s own definition.”

And that is having an impact on individuals.

Getting Stuck In The System: Larry Basich of Nevada suffers from heart problems. He’s 62 and bought Obamacare through the Nevada Health Link insurance exchange. He paid his premium before January 1, which is when coverage was slated to begin. He then had a heart attack on December 31. He had a triple bypass on January 3, and now owes $407,000 thanks to a mix-up at the insurance level.

President Obama has continually put off the deadline for implementation of Obamacare thanks to hang-ups in the system.

Losing Crucial Health Insurance: Bill Elliott told Megyn Kelly of Fox News that his health insurance premiums were set to jump by $1,300 per month due to his cancer after his plan was cancelled thanks to Obamacare. He said he will “pay the $95 fine and let nature take its course” to avoid becoming “a burden on my family.” Elliott said of Obama, “Absolutely he misled me. I believe that was more of an insult to me and the other people who have been cancelled than him saying 41 times ‘you’re going to keep your doctor, keep your insurance. Period.’”

Losing Access to Drugs and Doctors: According to Ralston College President Stephen Blackwood, his mother’s cancer will be accelerated by Obamacare cutting her Sandostatin medication; the costs on that medication were $14,000 between January 1 and late February. Blackwood’s mom had a Blue Cross/Blue Shield plan for 20 years; Obamacare killed it. Blackwood wrote, “Then on Feb. 12, just before going into (yet another) surgery, she was informed by Humana that it would not, in fact, cover her Sandostatin, or other cancer-related medications… Obamacare made my mother's old plan illegal, and it forced her to buy a new plan that would accelerate her disease and death... The 'Affordable' Care Act is a brutal, Procrustean disaster.”

Emilie Lamb, a woman with lupus who supported Obama, said, “Obamacare has made my life a nightmare. Obamacare is a health plan that is both unaffordable and uncaring. For a law named ‘The Affordable Care Act,’ this is both backward and perverse.”

Watching Premiums Explode: According to the workers at Extreme Dodge in Jackson, MI, they’re watching their premiums explode. That’s what they told NBC News senior investigative reporter Lisa Meyers in December. According to Breitbart News’ Wynton Hall, “Under Obamacare, the workers’ employer faced a 50% increase in costs to keep worker plans at the same benefit and deductible levels. To remain economically viable, the dealership decided to give each worker an extra $2,400 and let them find plans on their own.”

It’s not just autoworkers, though. According to Casey Heaps of Alabama, who saw her plan canceled and her rates jacked up, “This is not affordable at all. This is the unaffordable care act. I don't know what this world is coming to. It's scary. It makes me want to cry... When Obamacare hit I thought, 'Wow, it's gonna be affordable.' That has not been the case... This has just put me in a whirlwind. I have no idea what I'm going to do." Andy and Amy Mangione of Kentucky saw their bills triple thanks to Obamacare.

Obama voters, too, are feeling the pain. Colorado Obamcare supporter Cathy Wagner said after watching her insurance plan killed, “I was really shocked. All of my hopes were sort of dashed. Oh my gosh, President Obama, this is not what we hoped for, it’s not what we were told… Our premium for next year is going up to over $1,000 a month for two of us and we’re two fairly healthy individuals.”

Other Obama supporters have been writing their Democratic congresspeople asking how they can obtain cheap coverage. One couple wrote to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), “We believe that the Act is good for health care, the economy, & the future of our nation. However, ACA options for middle income individuals ages 59 & 60 are unaffordable. We’re learning that many others are similarly affected. In that spirit we ask that you fix this, for all of our sakes.”

Getting Fired: Emory Healthcare has fired 100 workers, with those former employees explaining, “The saddest part... is when, during the announcement, we were told that our job losses are due to the new Affordable Healthcare plan.” Indiana University has fired 50 custodial and maintenance employees thanks to Obamacare. SeaWorld will be cutting worker hours to avoid Obamacare’s 30-hour full-time requirement. In September, Investor’s Business Daily named 258 businesses that had fired or cut back employees. UPS dropped coverage for 15,000 spouses of employees. Colorado Mountain College will be cutting back professor hours to cope with Obamacare.

All of this is merely the tip of the iceberg. Obamacare will continue to destroy lives and, yes, kill people. The horror stories are real. Failing to acknowledge that will continue to damn more Americans to living a nightmare.

Dear God please somehow let us get rid of Obamacare and any other kind of socialized medicine.
