Complaint: Sebelius’ illegal
campaign trip for Obama
worse than we thought

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/30/2013 9:23:07 PM

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius violated federal law by campaigning for President Obama on the taxpayers’ dime, but now that initial violation has the Democratic National Committee and an HHS aide in the spotlight for related alleged infractions. A nonprofit government watchdog filed a complaint alleging that the DNC violated campaign finance law by misreporting the money it spent to reimburse HHS for Sebelius’ trip in a way that masked the fact that the Hatch Act, a ban on political campaigning by government employees working in their official capacity,

And just what will be done about it? We no longer have the rule of law in this country as it applies to Democrats. If she was a Republican you know this would be a whole different story.

Does anyone in the Rep Party think they will be re-elected or they just don´t care anymore, because after all, they are set for life ?

What happens in a schoolroom when one student is allowed to disregard all the rules? The other students eventually join in the misbehavior. Perhaps the dems blatant disregard for our laws, and the media´s apparent approval of those actions, will lead this country to become lawless. If that is the plan, then we see why the huge arming of homeland security.

Remember when Governor of Kansas...she could send out State Income Tax Refund checks. Bankrupting or nearly bankrupting the state.

Her father was Governor of Ohio at one time nearly bankrupting the state.

She didn´t pay her fair share of Federal income taxes and state taxes.

Hatch Act? Ironically the Hatch Act of 1939 was named for a Democrat Senator.

For those who haven´t studied the history of the Hatch Act (I hadn´t either) here is a tidbit about it from Ask.com

Widespread allegations that local Democratic Party politicians used employees of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) during the congressional elections of 1938 provided the immediate impetus for the passage of the Hatch Act....

Despite that investigation´s inconclusive findings, many in both parties determined to take action against the growing power of the WPA and its Chief Administrator, Harry Hopkins, an intimate of the president. The Act was sponsored by Senator Carl Hatch, a Democrat from New Mexico. At the time, Roosevelt was struggling to purge the Democratic party of its more conservative members[bold print is mine] who were increasingly aligned with the administration´s Republican opponents.

The president considered vetoing the legislation or allowing it to become law without his signature, but instead signed it on the last day he could do so. His signing message welcomed the legislation as if he had called for it[bold is mine] and emphasized the protection his administration would provide for political expression on the part of public employees.


Sounds like something Barry would do - take credit for something that isn´t his!

How can you not be a thief in the Beltway, when all that fake money is oozing bucketsful out of the Fed every day, and you know the entire media, led by Diane Sawyer, will look the other way and protect you and your moeny stealing crimes? It´s open house to theft and waste in DC. That´s the way it is.

Oh, but restrictions like the Hatch Act are meant to keep people in-line who don´t have a conscience, like Republicans and Conservatives. Liberals and Democrats are higher-minded and higher-principled, moral, conscientious people, though -- THEY can do whatever they want in any situation, because whatever they see as best to do MUST be the right thing...

It was a great help to me when I realized that these professional politicians only care about ONE thing: staying elected. Keeping their position of power is their goal. Tactics vary, but the goal is the same. So the demoncrats buy votes with stolen money, and the repukeicans keep their mouths shut when told to by the media.
Inside the beltway, everybody stays happy. Outside it, we toil, and boil.

Draft Bush! That´s the GOP establishment´s bold new scheme for 2016. And people say they’re out of ideas. “Many if not most” of 2012 nominee Mitt Romney´s biggest donors are courting former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, the Washington Post reported Sunday; the “vast majority” would back him in a nomination fight, according to one top fundraiser. Jeb, brother and son to presidents 43 and 41, respectively, hasn´t yet made up his mind: “the decision will be based on ?Can I do it joyfully?´” If he can, he´s stranger than he seems, and maybe not the sort of fellow we want to trust

Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore believes that whoever was responsible at General Motors for failing to recall a faulty ignition switch deserves death. "I am opposed to the death penalty, but to every rule there is usually an exception, and in this case I hope the criminals at General Motors will be arrested and made to pay for their pre-meditated decision to take human lives for a lousy ten bucks," he wrote. Moore blamed former President George W. Bush´s Transportation Department for ignoring the problem in 2007 and praised new GM CEO Mary Barra for telling the truth about the problem.

More details are emerging about what was presented at the "White Privilege Conference" held in Madison, Wisconsin, where tax money was spent to train teachers how to annihilate "white privilege" and "white supremacy" in American schools. One session insisted that whites can never be cured of their permanent racist attitudes. On March 30, Breitbart reported on the conference, now in its fifteenth year. Over these years, teachers have been told that whites have been pushing "white supremacy" on kids since the country was created, and that whites are so infused with racism that they aren´t even cognizant of their crimes.

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate.

News of the disastrous numbers comes as nervous Democrats and President Barack Obama, ahead of the November midterm elections, did their best on Monday´s enrollment deadline to put a positive spin on the deeply unpopular Obamacare program. (Snip) The White House now claims an Obamacare enrollment figure of six million people. However, according to The New York Times, at least 20% of those never paid their premiums to activate coverage, leaving them uninsured.

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in

WASHINGTON — LeBron James wants you to sign up for health coverage under Obamacare. So do Magic Johnson and Jonah Hill’s mom. Monday is (sort of) the deadline for Americans without employer-provided health coverage to sign up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act — the White House extended it so that anyone who’s begun to sign up by Monday can still complete the process by April 7 — and the final enrollment numbers will be an important test for a law intended to expand access for the uninsured. It’ll also be a test for the White House’s high-octane sales
