An FBI Just As Tainted And
Untrustworthy As The IRS
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/14/2014 7:31:03 PM     Post Reply
The Law: The FBI says it won´t prosecute anyone at the IRS for its admitted targeting of the president´s political foes. This just as the agency claims the law is no longer its main mission. So it´s a political goon squad now. According to a leak to the Wall Street Journal, the Federal Bureau of Investigation "didn´t find the kind of political bias or ´enemy hunting´ that would amount to a violation of criminal law." And so, nobody was likely to be prosecuted for the most blatant politicization of a federal agency within memory. All the Bureau found was a "mismanaged" agency

Military Briefed Obama On
Benghazi Terrorist Attack

Deceit: Newly declassified transcripts show top defense officials who briefed Obama on the day of the Benghazi attack described it as a terrorist attack and told the president so, yet he pushed a false narrative about a video. Just as the new book by former Defense Secretary Bob Gates confirmed what many believed, that President Obama was a politically motivated commander-in-chief who had no faith in an Afghan surge he put 30,000 Americans in harm´s way to execute, transcripts of congressional testimony by military leaders confirm that President Obama knew Benghazi was a terrorist attack before he went to bed to

Shirley Sherrod says she’ll never

Shirley Sherrod’s been busy. Too busy, in fact, to miss her brief tenure as a federal employee. “I just came back to my community and got involved again,” said Sherrod, who in 2010 was famously fired from her job with the USDA after being falsely accused of racism.(snip) “There are still people out there who think I’m a racist,” Sherrod told us in a recent interview. “Breitbart made it impossible for me to work for the federal government again.” It was the summer of 2010 when Andrew Breitbart, the late conservative blogger, published a doctored video of a little known Agriculture Department



Iran Nuke Deal Exposes U.S.
War Fatigue Under Obama

National Security: "Moderate" Iran President Hassan Rouhani wasted no time crowing that the world had surrendered to Iran in the Geneva nuclear deal. No surprise, especially when talk becomes America´s preferred weapon. Maj. Gen. Ataollah Salehi, Iran army commander, observed on Tuesday that the peace deal between America and other major powers and Iran proves the U.S. and Israel can´t beat Iran militarily, because, if they could have, they "would have already taken action." "Given their weakness in the military dimension, they have opted for the political arena, and we will certainly succeed in this area too," he said. The general makes a

NEW YORK – Around 5,000 undocumented students graduate annually from New York public schools but many do not go to college because they haven’t the money to enroll, even though the state legislature passed a bill providing them with access to state financial aid. A group of “dreamers,” as they are known, called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday to include $17 million in funding for the New York Dream Act in the next budget. “Take the bandages off your eyes so you can see us, we want to move ahead,” the Mexican Irma Karina Cruz Velez, a senior at Staten Island

WITH a White House cheating scan­dal set to explode, President BARACK OBAMA and his wife MICHELLE are hiding a divorce shocker from America! Only weeks after Obama publicly humiliated the first lady by snapping a “selfie” with a dishy blonde for­eign leader, the first couple’s shaky 21-year marriage has collapsed following a disastrous holiday trip, sources say. The two locked horns in a series of ugly fights during their recent Hawaiian getaway, but sources say the death blow came when Michelle learned that the Secret Service has covered up Obama’s cheating – twice. After a “mole” exposed the presi­dent’s betrayal, a furious Michelle

WaPo Calls Michelle Obama
a "First Lady for the Ages"

The Washington Post wants you to know First Lady Michelle Obama is “more than meets the eye.” To celebrate Mrs. Obama’s upcoming 50th birthday, the publication printed a glowing feature about her in its Express newspaper. The piece lists a few “Myths” about the First Lady, debunking each one with important “explanations.” Here’s just a couple: Myth: She is a food tyrant of Bloombergian intolerance. “Her focus on the nation’s eating habits has led to complaints that she wants to deprive Americans of dessert. But Obama repeatedly expresses her belief in moderation, talks about her affection for French fries and



What FBI ´investigation´
of the IRS scandal?

Let´s all be very clear: The FBI did not conduct an “investigation” into the IRS scandal. Not unless there are new protocols for investigating potential unlawful activities, which discard the quaint notion of speaking to the victims. In May, President Obama hurriedly called a White House news conference to stem the outrage about the IRS´s admitted targeting of conservative groups, and emphatically told the nation: “I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency but especially in the IRS, given the power that it has and the reach that it has into all of our lives." He appointed Attorney General

The journalists at CBS This Morning on Tuesday hyperventilated over the latest "fashion milestone" for Michelle Obama, donating four minutes to the First Lady´s second inaugural dress appearing at the Smithsonian. In contrast, the latest setback for ObamaCare warranted only a minute and 19 seconds. Co-host Charlie Rose enthused, "First Lady Michelle Obama is marking another fashion milestone. The Smithsonian Institution decided two dresses are better than one." [See video below. MP3 audio here.] Jan Crawford appeared at the American History Museum to update the breaking news that Mrs. Obama´s red dress will be on display. Crawford promoted, "Mrs. Obama´s

Fox News reporter Adam Housley has some harsh words for those who levy racially-charged insults at him and his wife Tamera Mowry over their interracial marriage. Earlier today we reported on OWN’s special interview with TV star Mowry, in which she tearfully recounted being called a “white man’s whore,” among other slurs. Speaking with TVNewser, Housley excoriated those who wish to cut down their relationship. “The fact that in this day and age, we get attacked for our interracial relationship is beyond sad…it is pathetic,” he said. “Yes I am white. Yes she is half black. Marrying a white man does not

Emergency House move to

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee late Tuesday dropped legislation that would bar the IRS and Treasury from issuing harsh new rules that would block Tea Party and other conservative tax exempt groups from engaging in political activity, potentially violating their First Amendment rights. Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., took the emergency action after the House failed to include the provision in a new spending bill that only warned the Internal Revenue Service not to use its $11 billion budget to target conservative groups. His committee has spent nearly eight months investigating the IRS targeting of conservative and Tea Party



Senate Democrats look for GOP
climate converts with new task force

Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., called on coastal Republicans to join a currently all-Democratic effort to "wake up Congress" on climate change. While the 18 members of the new Senate Climate Action Task Force, which aims to elevate the profile of climate change, announced Tuesday were all Democrats, few of the centrist lawmakers normally opposed to measures that restrict greenhouse gas regulations signed up. But Boxer argued it shouldn´t take full participation from Democrats to pass climate legislation. "You shouldn´t have to have 100 percent of the Democrats carrying this issue. It´s ridiculous," she told reporters after a news conference in the Capitol.

The Benghazi Transcripts: Did

On the eve of the terrorist attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, the Obama White House may have exaggerated the scope and depth of President Obama´s preparation for such attacks, newly declassified documents show. On Sept. 10, 2012 -- the day before Al Qaeda-linked terrorists carried out the bloody assault on the U.S. consulate and a related annex in Benghazi -- the White House Press Office issued a press release entitled "Readout of the President´s Meeting with Senior Administration Officials on Our Preparedness and Security Posture on the Eleventh Anniversary of

Thanks for watching that YouTube video! That will be 50 cents, please. Sound unrealistic? It´s actually a distinct possibility, after a Federal appeals court on Tuesday struck down an FCC ruling meant to prevent an Internet service provider -- the company you pay for online access -- from prioritizing some website traffic over others. And because that rule was wiped off the books, those ISPs are suddenly able to do just that. With service providers suddenly able to charge based on the type of content you watch or the sites you visit, it´s easy to imagine a system like that of today´s



Christie And Obama’s Lame Duckism

One un- or under-remarked-upon takeaways from the Christie spectacle is the fact that he is the most exciting figure in American politics for the moment, at least in the eyes of the mainstream media. Indeed, as I joked on Twitter, you have to wonder if Obama doesn’t feel a pang of jealousy for Christie. When was the last time the media dropped everything to listen to an Obama speech with such interest? No one hangs on his every word any more. Obama’s State of the Union address will of course get ample coverage, but it will be more pro-forma than

The omnibus spending bill before Congress continues to fund U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) advertising programs for food stamps in foreign countries like Mexico, Breitbart News has learned. The bill was hashed out between House Appropriations Committee chairman Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY) and Senate Appropriations Committee chairwoman Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD). The funding will continue despite claims in a document the House Appropriations Committee published that the bill contains a “prohibition” on such programs. Page three of this press document states regarding food stamps that the omnibus spending bill contains a "prohibition on advertisements or outreach with foreign governments." The entire paragraph

Lisa Bonchek Adams is currently hospitalized and being treated for Stage IV breast cancer. Since her diagnosis in October of 2012 at the age of 37, this mother of three has been blogging and tweeting about what she has been through mentally, personally, physically, and medically. For a chilling and revealing reason, former New York Times editor Bill Keller has a big problem with this.

Oh goody: White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer sent an e-mail early Tuesday to preview President Obama’s plan to use his executive power in ways Americans have never seen before. “President Obama has a resolution for 2014: That this will be a year of action,” Pfeiffer said in the e-mail, pointing out that Obama would no longer be waiting around for Congress to get things done. “Instead, the president will use his executive authority, both his pen and his phone, to work with anyone to get things done — whether they be leaders in business, education, Congress, states, or local communities,” he said.

The GOP’s leadership will try to persuade GOP legislators to back an immigration plan that includes tighter enforcement, an effective amnesty for 12 million people and more immigrant workers, according to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte. “We’re trying to find a way to give the members of the House a way to see how all these things would work in our step by step approach. … Finding a way to build that consensus is critical,” Goodlatte told an interviewer Sunday on the Spanish-language Telemundo network. But Goodlatte acknowledged deep GOP opposition to the plan, and indicated that the leadership won’t push

The $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill introduced Monday evening leaves the vast majority of pension cuts to military retirees intact, only exempting disabled veterans from the controversial provision included in last month’s budget deal. The spending bill amends a section of the bipartisan budget agreement that hit the military with reduced retirement pay, while also leaving generous benefits for civilian federal retirees untouched. The new spending bill, negotiated by House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R., Ky.) and Chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Committee Barbara Mikulski (D., Md.), would only restore retirement benefits for 17.5 percent of military retirees.

Media hype about mass shootings in America has fostered a myth that the killings are on the rise and that an assault weapon ban, expanded background checks and greater attention to the mentally ill will curb a rampaging epidemic, according to an authoritative and exhaustive study by a noted criminologist. Instead, according to James Alan Fox, author and criminology professor at Northeastern University, mass shootings have remained stagnant over 34 years, averaging 20 a year, and few were committed by the type of berserk psychos portrayed by the media. “Public discourse is grounded in myth and misunderstanding about the nature of the

A man staying at Justin Bieber´s home was arrested on narcotics charges during the execution of a search warrant today by the Los Angeles County Sheriff´s Department.
