And Then There Were Three! - Stalinist WH Threatening Journalists!

Posted by Brian

Bob Woodward got the snowball rolling on ABC News, telling Wolf Blitzer that he was threatened by a "very senior " member of the White House Staff.  Woodward told Blitzer he was sent an e-mail stating, "You will regret doing this".
Now, two others have come forward claiming that they were threatened by the White House in the same manner.
Former Bill Clinton staffer Lanny Davis, who now writes for the Washington Times, says that the paper was threatened with having its White House Press credentials revoked, and have access to members of the White House staff limited.
A third journalist, Ron Fournier, is also claiming that he was sent an e-mail stating(Link):  As editor-in-chief of National Journal, I received several e-mails and telephone calls from this White House official filled with vulgarity, abusive language, and virtually the same phrase that Woodward called a veiled threat. “You will regret staking out that claim.

Former Clinton Staffer Lanny Davis Speaks of White House Threats


Bob Woodward Tells Wolf Blitzer of Being Threatened by White house

Let's assume, for the sake of argument, that the President was completely unaware of this type of communication coming out of the White House.  Assume that he instructed his staff to "do whatever it takes" to stop the negative press he has been receiving.  He knows, or should know, that these are the kind of tactics they will use.  They are the tactics he used as a community organizer. In fact, he has done worse.  When he first won his Illinois State Senate seat, Obama had both of his opponents, first in the Democrat primary, then the general election, smeared by leaking his opponents "sealed" court records. He has surrounded himself with Communists (Van Jones), Mao admirers (Anita Dunn), and a bevy of others with ties to communist and socialist groups. (Link) And then there is the fact that he came up through the political ranks in the hard-nosed, no-holds-barred school of Chicago politics.
Thomas Jefferson wrote, ""Our liberty cannot be guarded but by the freedom of the press, nor that be limited without danger of losing it."  That Obama and his White House are threatening journalists and news editors is meant to send a chill through the media, particularly for young journalists who are trying to 'break through' in the highly competitive D.C. media.  The message is clear: If you want to have access to the right people, you better play ball! In other words: Be a stenographer for us. Write what we tell you to write, or your sources are going to dry up.
So far, the left and the media are reacting predictably.  They are attacking the whistleblowers, particularly Woodward, who is being ridiculed and called "senile"(Link).  The same Bob Woodward who has been a hero to the left for exposing the Watergate break-in, which brought down the Nixon Presidency, is now senile and someone to be mocked when he is critical of someone they are in loooove with.  Despite all of the thrills up the legs of these hacks, having multiple people coming out of the woodwork with virtually the same story may give this story enough legs that even they can no longer ignore this Administration's attempt to silence it's critics in the media.

Report warns sequester will hurt non-existant Government Agency!

Posted by Tom

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released a report in September of 2012, where it warned about the potential effects of Sequestration on the National Drug Intelligence Center.

There's only one problem with the report.  The Agency didn't exist!

Continually, reports on unemployment, economic growth, and other issues continue to be "adjusted" or modified without substantial supporting information.

The most "transparent" President/Administration in American History, the one who promised being able to view pending legislation on C-Span, the same one that said, "If you want to know what's in the Affordable Healthcare Act you have to pass it," has repeatedly demonstrated that transparency is only an illusion.



Does Joe Biden's advice stand the Test?

Posted by Tom

Here you can see Joe Biden's advice on what you should do to protect yourself.....His advise is not only illegal in most places, it's also incredibly irresponsible and dangerous!  As you will see, his advice also has the potential to be incredibly UNSAFE for someone that is not well trained and prepared!
You can see.....He doesn't haven't a clue what he's talking about.

NOTE:  What was done with these shooters is incredibly irresponsible and dangerous.

Supreme Court Rules Government can Spy on Americans

Posted by Tom

Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Federal Government can continue to Spy on and monitor the phone conversations of Americans.

The U.S. Supreme Court today essentially put the government's expanded terror surveillance program beyond legal challenge, tossing out a lawsuit filed by a group of lawyers, journalists, and civil rights groups who claimed they were improperly swept up in the law's reach.

By a 5-4 ruling, the court said the challengers couldn't show that they were actually harmed by the government's foreign terrorist surveillance program, set up during the George W. Bush administration to allow the monitoring of suspected terrorists overseas. Congress eventually approved the program, with some changes.

The issue in this case was what happens when targets of the program talk by phone or e-mail with people in the United States. The challengers claimed that because their jobs required them to talk with people overseas likely to be targeted by the program, they've had to change how they operate – traveling overseas to meet with potential clients and sources instead of talking to them by phone.
>Follow@NBCNewsUS<

Still not concerned?  Imagine living within the 100 miles of the Border or any Coast of the United States.  Here's an excellent articles by >FORBES< which shows you how your phone stores everywhere you've been by tracking and storing the cell towers your phone has exchanged data with, amongst other things.

The American People are allowing our Government to setup all the right conditions to have their Liberties taken from them.  Their justification is that if you can't prove they're doing it, how it harms you, so you can't stop or challenge it!  Is this Liberty?

Less than two weeks ago, the Border Search Exception was announced.  This means that anyone within 100 miles of any U.S. border, including if you live within 100 miles of the Coastline, Officials now have the authority to conduct warrantless, suspicionsless searches of you and your electronic devices.  This includes computers, phones, emails, photographs, documents, text messages and ANYTHING else they want to view.  Again, No Warrant or even Suspicion is required!  It is estimated that 197.4 Million Americans live within this zone!  Kiss the 4th Amendment goodbye.  Everything is being justified for your "safety."


Americans need to WAKE UP and understand the almost daily, incremental loss of their Liberties.  History is replete with examples of how his this very same model has been used and abused by Governments to create oppressive, totalitarian regimes.

Benjamin Franklin said, "They who give up essential Liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."  

WAKE UP AMERICA!

Obama Using Twitter "Spambots" to Create Illusion of Support On Gun Control Debate

Posted by Brian

"And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth. 'Who controls the past' ran the Party slogan, 'controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.'"
George Orwell's "1984"

GOP lawmaker: Obama using fake Twitter messages in fight over gun control 
By Pete Kasperowicz - 02/25/13 12:18 PM ET

A Texas Republican on Monday said President Obama's gun control campaign is a fraud based on fake messages over Twitter.
Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) accused Obama of trying to make support for his position look stronger than it really is by flooding Twitter with messages from people who don't exist.
"Obama's anti-gun campaign is a fraud," Stockman said. "Obama's supporters are panicking and willing to do anything to create the appearance of popular support, even if it means trying to defraud Congress," he added. "I call upon the president to denounce this phony spam campaign."

Fraud Alert! Food Stamp Recipients With $7K Balances, Mercedes

Posted by Brian

Government spending is out of control. Lavish parties and trips for G.S.A(link), and other federal employees. Medicare fraud, not just by patients, but by providers, costing taxpayers hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars (link).
How about a program meant to aid the truly needy, namely food stamps, in which the "needy" are driving Mercedes, and racking up over $7 thousand balances, all at the taxpayers expense.
The next time the President, or some other government hack, talks about the need to raise your taxes as a sign of "compassion" for our "most vulnerable" - women, minorities, and of course, the children - tell them that the fraud and abuse in the leviathan's of the federal and state governments need to be fixed before begging the taxpayers for more of their hard earned money.  If the government were truly concerned about finding ways to balance the out-of-control budget, instead of a so-called "apocalyptic" sequester scheme, there would be a top to bottom audit of all government agencies and programs for fraud, efficiency, and most importantly, if there is an actual constitutional power for the establishment of the agency(ies) and/or program(s). If not, begin to eliminate these unconstitutional Departments and agencies, as well as eliminate redundancy within the ones which are legally enumerated.
Don't hold your breath waiting for it to happen, though.

PEOPLE WITH $7K WORTH OF FOOD STAMPS? THE STATE WHERE THIS IS HAPPENING MIGHT SURPRISE YOU
Feb. 25, 2013 10:16am Becket Adams

“Should there be a limit on how much tax payers dollars can be given to someone on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program?” Texas’ KGBT 4TV asks in an investigative report on possible food stamp abuse in the Rio Grande Valley.
“One valley man was outraged after finding out how much money some people on government assistance are getting,” reads the report. “Action 4 News uncovers just how many people are on SNAP in the Valley and how much money they are getting.”
The report was helped along by a gas station clerk who had grown tired of seeing customers make enormous purchases with their Lone Star cards. In some cases, he says, people would show up and have a balance of at least $7,000 on their cards.

Government wants "National ID Card"

Posted by Tom

When the Social Security system was started back in 1935, few envisioned that their new "Social Security Number" would  eventually be needed to have a phone, cable/satellite TV service, electric service, natural gas, life insurance, obtain a credit card, health care, purchase firearms, file taxes, obtain a job or to have a drivers license.  The Social Security Number has provided a key for nearly anyone to invade your privacy, destroy your credit and to unlock any private aspect of your life.  This is one of the reasons why identity theft is so widespread and rampant in this Country!

The Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal report that President Obama and at least 8 Senators are now calling for a National ID Card, with a computer chip and other biometric features, that would be issued to EVERYONE.  This is being sold under the guise of controlling immigration by enabling potential employers to establish immigration status.  We're providing education and healthcare for illegal immigration and now we're going to deny them employment, while at the same time refusing to deport them?  Yet another insult and burden to the American Citizens and Taxpayers!  At a time when significant parts of our border are unmanned or otherwise not controlled, as Obama threatens to pull even more Border Patrol and ICE Agents from our borders, Americans are now being asked to surrender another element of their Liberty.

Citizens need to realize that micro chipped cards would permit RFID sensors to be located along any roadway, bridge, sidewalk,  office, doorway, etc., to track the movement of EVERY CITIZEN in real time and through stored, collected data.  Is this really the kind of Country we want to live in?  What's next, we will all be assigned personal drones?  Americans need to LEARN FROM HISTORY and be INCREDIBLY CONCERNED!  Look what happened with a simple Social Security Card that was printed on paper...

What do you think will happen with a computer chipped National ID Card?  To think that this will not be used to COLLECT, CONTROL and INVADE every aspect of your privacy would be a complete denial of history!  Government control and overreach is OUT OF CONTROL.  The sheep need to wake-up before the Shepherds lead them to the slaughter...

Look around, all the indicators are being written on the wall....See related article:  A Very Disturbing Picture is beginning to Form

LIAR! NYT's Krugman Now Admits "Death Panels" WILL Be Part Of ObamaCare

Posted by Brian

Nobel Keynesian Economist Paul Krugman
Graduate of the Josef Goebbels School of Journalism
Paul Krugman is a liar. In the debate leading up to the passage of ObamaCare, Krugman was leading the charge in smearing those who warned Americans' that the massive costs of ObamaCare would lead to "Death Panels".
In a New York Times opinion piece on March 21, 2010 (Read Article Here), the lying Krugman wrote the following:

"...the campaign of fear hasn’t been carried out by a radical fringe, unconnected to the Republican establishment. On the contrary, that establishment has been involved and approving all the way. Politicians like Sarah Palin — who was, let us remember, the G.O.P.’s vice-presidential candidate — eagerly spread the death panel lie,..."

Paul Krugman, speaking at what appears to be a synagogue this week told parishioners that death panels and a value added tax will be needed to pay for the rising costs of Obamacare.

Transcript:
"Eventually we do have a problem. That the population is getting older, health care costs are rising... there is this question of how we're going to pay for the programs. The year 2025, the year 2030, something is going to have to give... We're going to need more revenue... Surely it will require some sort of middle class taxes as well.. We won't be able to pay for the kind of government the society we want without some increase in taxes... on the middle class, maybe a value added tax... And we're also going to have to make decisions about health care, doc pay for health care that has no demonstrated medical benefits. So the snarky version... which I shouldn't even say because it will get me in trouble, is death panels and sales taxes is how we do this".





So why is Krugman finally admitting this now? Because it's now safe to say it.  Obama, Krugman, and the left-wing media are all complicit in the lie.  They KNEW, as did many of us on the right, that government managed health care would lead to this.  But while conservatives sounded the alarm, Krugman and his Marxist/leftist comrades denied it all as right-wing hysteria to an increasingly gullible and dependent American public.
Hugo Black once said, "The Founding Fathers gave the free press the protection it must have to bare the secrets of government and inform the people."  Today's media do not inform, or lay bare the lies told by our government officials.  They have become stenographers for those in power, and vile propagandists for the State.  They are unconcerned with informing the public.  They are invested in assisting those in power with state-approved propaganda.
What Krugman and his ilk have done - are doing! - is worse than criminal.  It is unethical and immoral. They are Judas.  I hope he, and they, choke on their thirty pieces of silver.

Obama Admin Eyeing Confiscation of Americans' 401K's and IRA's

So you think your retirement accounts are yours? Think again!

February 22, 2013
The Feds Want Your Retirement Accounts 
By John White
Quietly, behind the scenes, the groundwork is being laid for federal government confiscation of tax-deferred retirement accounts such as IRAs. Slowly, the cat is being let out of the bag.
Last January 18th, in a little noticed interview of Richard Cordray, acting head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Bloomberg reported "[t]he U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau [CFPB] is weighing whether it should take on a role in helping Americans manage the $19.4 trillion they have put into retirement savings, a move that would be the agency's first foray into consumer investments."  That thought generates some skepticism, as aptly expressed by the Richard Terrell cartoon (Above) published by American Thinker.

Americans' and GOP Being Played by Obama on Sequestration

The American Public is being Duped! The Sequester is the Least of Our Problems!
Everyone is all in a tizzy over the upcoming sequestration.  Massive cuts to the military, border control, the FBI, federal prosecutors, transportation, education (every good liberal plan always has to be about how it hurts the children), and a host of other things are being thrown around.  Make no mistake, Obama will allow the cuts to unfold, and then promptly blame the Republicans for all of it.  The whole thing is political gamesmanship meant to destroy the GOP, and Obama is light years ahead of GOP leaders Boehner, Cantor, and the rest of this feckless bunch.

Keep in mind also, that we are talking about $85 Billion in so-called "cuts". This represents about 2% of the overall federal budget.  It wasn't that long ago that the Federal Government was able to "find" $60 Billion overnight for Hurricane Sandy Relief, which was loaded with pork-barrel spending having nothing to do with "relief" (Link).  You know? The one "Krispy Kreme" Christie squealed (Link) about like a stuck pig? But yet, they can't find $85B worth of waste in the tangled bureaucracy of D.C. to avoid these automatic cuts?

Of course, the cuts won't come from non-essential services, or those mandated by the Constitution to be the primary purpose of the Federal government.  No, instead our elected officials will continue to fund things like paying senior citizens $1.2 million to play video games, so we can study their effect on them.(link) Then there is the essential service of spending $2.2 Billion a year to provide free cell phones to people, because we all know that having a cell phone has now been reclassified as a basic human right. How about $4 million to build the IRS its own TV studio?  Who could oppose that essential spending? Of course, we all know that it is essential that the government provide all-expense paid trips to federal employees for conferences in Las Vegas and Hawaii at a cool million dollars a pop.

I can think of aanother quick way to save money right off of the top.  How about Barack Obama cuts the number of vacations, golf trips, and other non-essential trips he takes by half.  This would save $700 MILLION per year of the estimated $1.4 BILLION (link) he and his family currently cost.  (In contrast, England's Royal Family cost the British $60 million a year.) He might even be able to save more if he can convince Michelle to actually ride on the same plane as him, instead of taking earlier flights when he is held up by actually performing Presidential duties.  I know its a huge sacrifice for her to make, but in the interest of actually appearing that she gives a crap about the rest of the serfs around the country, this might be a nice gesture.

Of course, none of this is going to happen.  The whole sequester song-and-dance act is not about coming up with budget solutions, else Harry Reid would have brought a budget to the Senate floor at least once during the last 4 years, as he is required by law to do. But, why worry about the law when the whole purpose is to create a fiscal crisis and blame it on the Republicans?

Also keep in mind that the sequester is the idea of the Obama White House, which he now blames on the GOP.  (Link) Let's be clear.  Obama is lying!  The Washington Post, which is liberal, gives Obama "Four Pinocchio's" out of four on his claim.

Back in July of 2011, White House national economic Director Jack Sperling said that the White House proposed the idea of the sequester. It was then brought to Senate Majority Leader Reid, who it was said looked like he wanted to "throw up" when he was first  told.  They then explained to him that it would work because they "would design it so that half the threatened cuts would be from the Defense Department….The idea was to make all of the threatened cuts so unthinkable and onerous that the supercommittee (tasked with making additional cuts) would do its work and come up with its own deficit reduction plan".

 Remember back in 2011when President Obama supported the sequester cuts?  Now, on February 19, 2013, he gives a speech on how devastating they will be.


The sequestration is a political calculation, not an economic solution, perpetrated by, and being carried out by, the White House, for two years. It is a plan to corner Republicans, not to cut spending, but to allow Obama and the Democrats to continue spending at unsustainable rates (GAO analysis, not mine) for the foreseeable future.  The Republican leadership, under Boehner, who moronically signed onto the plan only weeks after the original proposal, is too stupid to explain it to the American people. Furthermore, the mainstream media is complicit in furthering the propaganda from Obama and the Democrats in convincing the American people that this is a Republican plan, and that it is their fault.  Worse, most Americans are completely unaware of the coming economic collapse being purposefully driven by this Administration, statist Democrats, and big government Republican leadership, because of the media's total dereliction in providing people actual facts, choosing instead to provide White House talking points  in print ond on the "news" programming.

Sadly, if there is not one person, Republican or Democrat, who is willing to stand up to Obama and the White House and put a halt to his agenda and his spending, the sequestration will be nothing compared to the economic disaster that is looming in the near future.

Coulter's "Conservative" Christie says He Agrees with Lib Andrew Cuomo on 98% of Issues

Posted by Brian
H/T to Big Government

So, have Ann Coulter and numerous others been hornswoggled by the supposedly conservative Chris Christie? My question: Will this finally wake Coulter up, or has "Christie the Pizza Hut" swayed her over to the dark side for good?
The New Jersey Governor, famous for his contentious encounters with the teachers union in his state on YouTube, has garnered the attention of many for his brash, no-nonsense way he has stood up to them in the videos. As a result, many, including the aforementioned Coulter, have carried on like school girls over Christie, in much the same cult of personality, mindless way that liberals react to Obama.  The Christie in the video is who they are in love with.  "See how he stands up to the union!", they say. The fact that he leans, or is liberal on any number of core conservative values and issues, from climate change to gun control,  illegal immigration, Islamists, and government-run health care matters not.
Saying that he agrees with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on 98% (link) of the issues only cements what many of us have been saying for several years.
Christie is a well-entrenched liberal Republican, and just another of the GOP establishment who need to be exposed and defeated.

Gas Prices: Welcome to the New Normal

Posted by Brian

"I think that I would have preferred a gradual adjustment. The fact that this is such a shock to American pocketbooks is not a good thing. (Video)
Barack Obama - 2008

So said Barack Obama during the 2008 campaign.  When oil shot to $150 a barrel, and gas spiked to over $4 for three weeks during the summer of 2008, the problem wasn't, as Obama sees it, that the price was too high.  The problem was that the price had risen to fast.  American's were angry, and the sudden increase was hurting their budgets.  If he could just have the prices rise more gradually, he could create a "new" normal, and the people would accept the increases, and adjust their household budgets accordingly.  They would also be more accepting of funneling more taxpayer dollars into Obama's green energy initiatives.


We are witnessing the managed increase of energy prices that Obama spoke of in 2008.  Prices did rise under President Bush during his eight years in office (link) - 7% in his first term, and 9% in his second term. Bush's response to rising oil prices was to lift moratoriums on drilling in the Outer Continental shelf when the price spiked.  The result? Prices dropped significantly.  Now that prices are approaching $4 a gallon again, Obama is actively blocking the energy companies to produce more energy.  He and his sycophants are calling for the blocking of the Keystone XL pipeline and the BILLIONS of barrels of oil available in the Bakken reserve.  He maintains a moratorium on offshore drilling, and on known reserves on federal lands.  His energy policy is working just as he wants it to, and the pain it is causing the American people at the gas pumps and the check out stands doesn't concern him one iota.

Obama, his energy Secretary Steven Chu, and the rest of his ilk are carefully and purposely managing the economy and our energy policy to weaken the United States, pushing us towards his goal of a European-like socialist state, and he is doing it with the approval of clueless Americans.  To Obama, we are the frog in the pot as he turns up the heat, slowly killing what remains of a once great and powerful nation.

Mandatory USDA Sensitivity Training: "The Pilgrims Were Illegal Aliens"


Judicial Watch obtained through an FOIA request, videos of mandatory USDA "sensitivity" training that more closely resembles an indoctrination session.
The instructor, Samuel Betances, has the class repeat back things like the following:
"I want you to say America was founded by outsiders."
"The Pilgrims were illegal aliens."
The Pilgrims never gave their passports to the Indians."

Betances goes on to say that this training is costing taxpayers a fortune,so the audience should be "focusing on mission".  What mission would that be? Rewriting American history? Government indoctrination of the American public at the taxpayers expense?
