Monday Round Up

In the poster city for long term democrat reign, Detroit residents complain that packs of dogs terrorize citizens subjects.

The niece of “Plugs” Biden, i.e. the idiot a heartbeat from the Oval Office, is an addict and she blames Uncle Joe.

Far left extremist moonbat Nancy Pelosi, the so-called “Leader” of the House democrats, claims there is nothing left to cut from the federal budget.

First off, there hasn’t been a federal budget passed since George W. Bush was President.  Second, she’s an idiot.  Let’s start a short list of stuff and can be easily cut and will benefit the American taxpayer.

  1. The $2.2 billion Obamaphone program
  2. Supplying arms and funding to known terrorist groups in Syria
  3. The Department of Education
  4. Obamacare
  5. Fraud and Waste in the federal food stamps program
  6. Most, if not all, of the Department of Labor

The IRS really did have a ‘hit list’ that targeted conservative groups.  This can count as our Dear Leader keeping at least one of his promises.

Former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan is no fan of Barack Hussein Obama’s Tax, Barrow, and Spend policies.

File under: There is nothing quite as intolerant and closed minded as a “tolerant and open minded liberal.”

Violent online game lets players murder NRA officials by shooting them. It’s all the rage with the peace loving left who want to take firearms from the law abiding by force.

 

Round Up Post

The New York Times company sells the Boston Globe at a massive loss.

The brand just isn’t worth what it used to be.  Could it be that alternative media has allowed sophisticated news readers a wider range than the what the narrow far left filter of the Boston Globe gave them.

Media Malpractice and the IRS Scandal, Part II

The MSM/DNC really want this to just go away, but this story has legs that just keep going on and on.

Example: Emails reveal Lois Lerner wrongfully used IRS to aid FEC in targeting conservative group in 2009

Michael Graham nails it: It’s Not That He’s Liberal, And It’s Certainly Not That He’s Black. It’s That Obama Just Really Sucks At Being President

The Obama Economy: Where’s that 5% unemployment rate Obama promised by now?

According to the famous Obama Economy chart, unemployment would be at 5.25% by now in the “worst” case of the government doing nothing.

Now we know the actual worst case scenario was the Obama economic plan!

 

 

Things our Dear Leader Does Not Want Americans Thinking About

It is a very long list, so I’m just going to hit some of the high points.

The IRS’s illegal targeting of conservative political groups is being tracked back to the Obama White House.

This is a clear violation of American’s First & Fifteenth Amendment rights that the left doesn’t care about.

The city of Detroit going bankrupt after decades of single party democrat rule.

As the nice man from Cold Fury puts it, “To achieve this level of devastation, you usually have to be invaded by a foreign power.” Hmmm…given how Obama Cultists feel about the Constitution, he may be on to something here.

The murder of an United States of American Ambassador, and three other Americans, by Islamic terrorists in Libya, and how the security lapses can be traced back to Obama’s State Department. Which was at the time under the command of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

As I pointed out several months ago: Democrat congressman Stephen Lynch on Benghazi Talking Points: ‘It Was Scrubbed … It Was False Information. There’s No Excuse For That.’ Yup, the Obama regime flat out lied the American people for the purpose of ”damage control” prior to the election. This really does call for hearings.

The murder of over three hundred Mexicans and at least one US Federal Agent by Mexican Drug Cartels using semi-automatic firearms supplied by Obama’s so-called “Justice Department” under the control of AG Eric Holder.

The Economy. Specifically, the Obama economy, also known as the worst recovery since the Great Depression. Obama’s “jobless recovery” is a recovery in name only.

Here are a few more facts about the economy that Barry & his cultists don’t want you thinking about: The current US debt is %16.87 Trillion. That works out to $148,026 per tax payer. Taxes have increased $122.8 Billion in 2013 alone. The current budget deficit is $818.5 Billion. The labor force has 10 million less eligible workers than it did right before Barry started his “Occupy the White House” golf tour in 2009. So when an leftist tries to tell you about Obama’s “job creation” record, it’s a lie. The US is in the hole for 10 million jobs under his watch. Don’t expect much improvement either. You may have missed this if you’ve been feeding at the MSM/DNC trough: Obamacare to destroy up to 1 million low-wage jobs and completely bankrupt Medicaid.

Let’s not forget some other items our Dear Leader is desperate to sweep under the rug, including gathering of phone records of the AP (part of his “most transparent administration evah!” continuing war against Whistle Blowers and Inspector Generals), and Eric Holder’s so-called “Justice Department” which won’t prosecute an open and shut case regarding the Black Panthers.

Remember, this is a short list. There are more Obama Scandals that they want to distract you from by waving the race card.

This is not a new tactic.

“Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.”

Mary Frances Berry, former Chairwoman, US Commission on Civil Rights. Clearly she has a basic misunderstanding of the actual meaning of Civil Rights. Given that she was appointed by that idiot James Earl Carter III, this is hardly surprising. Note that she freely admits there is no factual basis for her accusation of racism. It is merely a tactic of the radical left to avoid discussion on their own failures.

Quote of Day

Setting the way back machine to 2008 for this quote from the recently elected US Senator Barack Hussein Obama:

“No one should get a free pass to violate the basic civil liberties of the American people – not the President of the United States, and not the telecommunications companies that fell in line with his warrantless surveillance program.  We have to make clear the lines that cannot be crossed.”

Ya, he was lying when he said that.  That is pretty consistent with just about everything else he has said.

Quote of the Day

“I think the IRS probe is very high the list of priorities for Obama. It’s right under congratulating the first dyslexic, transgender hockey player. He’s going to be visiting a solar panel farm run by vegans. And he will be giving a medal to a woman who treats obese rodents with hypnotherapy. Then after that maybe they’ll get to the IRS.”

Not good enough to work in the Obama White House

The continuous flow of scandals, felonies, lies and cover ups coming from the Obama White House reminded me of this exchange from the TV show Archer.

Cyril Figgis: How do you keep track of all these lies?

Sterling Archer: Practice Cyril. Lying is like 95% of what I do.

Cyril Figgis: In your job.

Sterling Archer: Sure.

Sorry Archer, 95% just isn’t good enough to work in the Obama White administration.

Case in point, White House Spokes Weasel Jay Carney.  He has moved well beyond the typical spin control required in the job and right into Baghdad Bob territory.  Plenty of video evidence of that.

Let’s review:

The Entire Obama White House staff, and numerous members of the Obama executive branch, lied repeatedly, in fact often, on National TV, about the murder of four Americans, including an Ambassador in Benghazi.  That is documented.  Proven over and over again.  Which is why most leftists will claim it’s ‘not a big deal’, since they can’t deny it or blame President G.W. Bush.

The Obama regime lied repeatedly over the IRS multiple violations of the First Amendment rights of Conservative groups.  The Obama cultists’ explanation of this is particularly hypocritical, since they are claiming the Tea Party groups were asking for it by wearing a short skirt, or reading the Constitution. The Cato Daily Podcast, which you should be listening to, interviewed one of the top people at the D.C. branch of the ACLU. This fellow felt this was a big fornicating deal.  It was deliberate targeting of a group practice of free political speech.  A clear felony level violation of the First Amendment. The ACLU is taking the classic Liberal position here, which is the territory of Libertarians these days.  The self identified “progressives” are being true to form, since they never were fans of free speech or the market place of free ideas.

The Obama regime lied, and continues to lie, about their Fast and Furious program in where it supplied semi-automatic weapons to Mexican drug cartels.  A program that resulted in the murders of over 300 Mexican nationals and at least one US Federal Agent.  If this was as above board as they claim, why is our Dear Leader‘s top officials stonewalling any attempts to find out the facts?

Bottom line, our Dear Leader promised the “most transparent administration ever”, and instead he has gone into an information blackout and raised the administration’s paranoia well past the levels of the Nixon administration.  Don’t forget his previous War on Inspector Generals.

It is also interesting to watch all the far left extremists Obama cultists back pedal to defend the actions of their Lightbringer that they would have screamed bloody murder and flooded the streets protesting if anybody with a R after their name had done it.

Quote of the Day

“This will be a scandal like Watergate if it turns out that the IRS was acting under orders from Barack Obama or Valerie Jarrett. If the White House’s conduct turns out to be unimpeachable, then it is something far worse: a sign that the government itself has become a threat to the Constitution.”

– James Taranto

Quote of the Day

“And the IRS scandal was a subversion of democracy on a massive scale. The most fearsome and coercive arm of the administrative state embarked on a systematic effort to suppress citizen dissent against the party in power. Thomas Friedman is famous for musing that he wishes America could be China for a day. It turns out we’ve been China for a while.”

– James Taranto

This sums it up pretty well

The Bookworm Room nails it:

…the Obama government is about politics before country, revenge before law and morality, and cover-ups above and beyond everything.

Yes, there is more…

…the head of the IRS went before Congress and confessed that the IRS denied what was going on before the election (a lie) and that it timed the release of information to bury it in the news cycle.  And then there’s all that other fascinating stuff that’s been oozing out from the single most powerful coercive entity in the federal government.

In every single statement she made, Lois Lerner, the IRS official who every so casually broke the story, lied.  Just some examples are the fact that the IRS didn’t target, maybe, 75 groups.  It targeted at least 470 groups.  And it wasn’t just wacky Tea Party groups that got caught it the cross hairs, it was any group that appeared even vaguely to oppose Obama’s policies.  The targeting wasn’t just confined to a rogue Ohio office, it went to the top.  And, indeed, the very top person got over $100,000 in bonuses and was promoted to head the — ahem — nonpartisan branch of the IRS in charge of enforcing ObamaCare.

We also know that the IRS illegally leaked information about Obama’s political opponents — which definitely has a kind of mirror-like Watergate quality to it.  Nixon’s henchmen stole data directly from his political opponents; Obama’s henchmen release data about Obama’s political opponents to Obama’s supporters.  And of course, speaking of stealing things, it appears that the IRS stole tens of thousands of medical records — this would be, of course, the same IRS that’s in charge of enforcing ObamaCare.

Of course, our Dear Leader claims he knew nothing of this, and his cultist followers will deny any wrongdoing, except to blame former President George W. Bush.

The Smoking Gun for the Obama IRS Scandal

As you may know, unless you get all your “news” from MSNBC, the Obama administration’s IRS illegally targeted conservative groups.  Of course, our Dear Leader denied any knowledge and sent out his spokes weasels to claim that this really isn’t important.

 Jim Hoff at Gateway Pundit has the details on what looks, sounds, walks, and smells, like a smoking gun of Barack Hussein Obama’s direct involvement with the IRS’ illegal, and unconstitutional, hate crimes against conservative groups.

President Obama met with anti-Tea Party IRS union chief Colleen Kelly in the White House the day before the agency targeted Tea Party.

The very next day after her White House meeting with the President, according to the Treasury Department’s Inspector General’s Report, IRS employees — the same employees who belong to the NTEU — set to work in earnest targeting the Tea Party and conservative groups around America.

In short: the very day after the president of the quite publicly anti-Tea Party labor union — the union for IRS employees — met with President Obama, the manager of the IRS “Determinations Unit Program agreed” to open a “Sensitive Case report on the Tea party cases.” As stated by the IG report.

Now let’s see if any of the mainstream media, besides possibly Fox News, pick up on this.

Of course, there is more:

A tea-party group targeted by Democrats gets attention from the IRS—and the FBI, OSHA, and the ATF.

The Washington Post gives  “A Bushel of Pinocchios” for IRS’s Lois Lerner.
