CBS News confirms multiple breaches
of Sharyl Attkisson’s computer

Washington Post, by Eric Wemple

Original Article

Posted By:shalimar, 6/14/2013 11:04:14 AM

CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson revealed in May that her computer had been compromised. When asked about the situation, CBS News responded with a statement that it was conducting an investigation.... “A cyber security firm hired by CBS News has determined through forensic analysis that Sharyl Attkisson’s computer was accessed by an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions late in 2012. Evidence suggests this party performed all access remotely using Attkisson’s accounts. While no malicious code was found, forensic analysis revealed an intruder had executed commands that appeared to involve search and exfiltration of data.

Just a coincidence, I´m sure. As James Clapper would say, it was done "not wittingly."

I don´t expect CBS will have to look further than the NSA.

Does anyone think George Soros has anything to do with the wiretapping by NSA.

Recently, I posted a, tongue in cheek, remark that China, Russia, and George Soros, all dream of ruling the world.

I may have been closer to the truth than I suspected.

If our media was unmoved by the video-taped beheading of journalist Daniel Pearl, do you think the media is going to care that ´rabble-rouser´ Sharl Attkisson´s computer was breached by the government?

"Organizing for America" has all sorts of hackers on their team. This may even be the same hackers who altered the election results to ensure Barry´s win in 2012.

It could be the NSA but I would suspect an internal saboteur. Sharyl needs to bail as soon as possible for her own safety.

The last month has been rife with snooping disclosures but I think Bami is pleased.

If you want to stop the flow of ´damaging´ information you scare the crap out of your enemies. After all, the IRS ´voluntarily´ answered a planted question that started the whole IRS thing.

That´s how drug dealers, the mafia and socialists do things.

Exactly #14. The only surprise here is that anyone is surprised. They had already told us their game plan, Rules for Radicals etc. and while some were warning us about this group of criminals we had the usual suspects defending them. It´s very simple folks, just enjoy what you have because it´s all over but the shouting.

If we accept the theory that Soros is pulling Obama´s strings, then I think we have to start accepting the fact that Soros is using Obama to get info on the major governments of the world. He, after all, made his fortune toppling currencies, so what better well of info could he have but Obama at the head of the NSA?

The Administration has also been trolling for dirt on Sheryl Attkisson, I´m sure. ANYTHING to smear her and discredit her. We will probably here all kinds of things from anonymous sources and unnamed colleagues.

Knowledge is power. Just think how the Allied Forces benefited from breaking the Enigma Code, and having the benefit of all the communications in World War II. There is no doubt that it was a strong factor in Allied victory.

The ability to know the thinking and planning of your enemy ahead of time, as well as to use that information to discredit your foes, is an almost insurmountable barrier for the Republicans.

The media are simply tools. When you use a screwdriver as a chisel and it gets broken, oh well. The funny thing is that the MSM think of themselves as part of the progressive "superior race" and yet BO manipulates and lies to them like they are childish fools. I´m sure he holds them in disdain.

The only one BO cares about himself. He also protects his inner circle because they are his enforcers but even they can be thrown under the bus when needed.

The progressive world is petty, nasty place.

Companies Prepare to Pass
More Health Costs to Workers
Wall Street Journal, by Theo Francis    Original Article
Posted By: shalimar- 11/25/2013 12:50:36 PM     Post Reply
Companies are bracing for an influx of participants in their insurance plans due to the health-care overhaul, adding to pressure to shift more of the cost of coverage to employees. Many employers are betting that the Affordable Care Act´s requirement that all Americans have health insurance starting in 2014 will bring more people into their plans who have previously opted out. That, along with other rising expenses, is prompting companies to raise workers´ premium contributions, steer them toward high-deductible plans and charge them more to cover family members.

House Speaker John Boehner’s health insurance premiums will nearly double — and his deductibles will almost triple — as a result of the Affordable Care Act, according to figures provided by his office at POLITICO’s request. Don’t expect to hear the Ohio Republican complain about his personal price spike, but he’s one of many older lawmakers and aides who are just finding out how much more they will have to pay as they move from the old Federal Employees Health Benefits system to coverage in the District of Columbia’s new health insurance exchange ...

The Department of Justice has argued for months the lawsuit should be dismissed. More from the Wall Street Journal: A federal judge on Tuesday refused to dismiss a lawsuit that seeks to block the Obama administration from offering subsidies to low- and middle-income individuals who buy health insurance though online exchanges run by the federal government.

Lois Lerner, then head of the IRS Tax Exempt Organizations division, also received an email alongside White House officials that contained confidential information. Ingram attempted to counsel the White House on a lawsuit from religious organizations opposing Obamacare’s contraception mandate.

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. My health insurer, Kaiser Permanente, has finally calculated what our family’s new health insurance rates will be under the grotesquely misnamed Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare.) The upshot: my premiums are about to rise by 114.6%. My wife’s rates? Up 109%. Our kids? Don’t ask.[snip] I wish there was some way of regarding this new “bronze” plan as an improvement over what we had before. But that’s really not possible. The new deductible will be higher ($4,500 instead of $4,000.) My primary care benefit is worse...

A new rule issued late Friday requires state, federal and local agencies as well as health insurers to swap the protected personal health information of anybody seeking to join the new health care program that will be enforced by the Internal Revenue Service. Personal health information, or PHI, is highly protected under federal law, but the latest ruling from the Department of Health and Human Services allows agencies to trade the information to verify that Obamacare applicants are getting the minimum amount of health insurance coverage they need from the health "exchanges."

Where Lois Lerner goes, drama follows. On Wednesday, the former IRS officer again invoked the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. That precipitated a heated exchange between the committee’s Republican chairman, Darrell Issa, and Democratic ranking member Elijah Cummings, who called the hearings “un-American.” And that spat has become the story. No doubt that is exactly what Cummings had in mind. Because it distracts attention from the substance of the hearings — and from the questions raised by e-mails and public remarks Lois Lerner wrote, received or made when she was IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations.

Speaking to reporters just minutes after Ms. Lerner again invoked her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination at a committee hearing, Mr. Boehner said he would wait for a final report of what happened. But he said he believes she will eventually have to talk. “I’ll wait for a report from Chairman Issa about what happened or what will happen. But at some point I believe that

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers. Its slogan:

In a strongly worded letter to House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio), the Congressional Black Caucus called for Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to be stripped of his House committee chairmanship after he abruptly ended a hearing Wednesday morning over the objection of Democrats in the room. "Mr. Issa is a disgrace and should not be allowed to continue in a leadership role," wrote Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), who leads the Congressional Black Caucus, in the letter to Boehner. The Wednesday hearing on the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting controversy quickly turned tense. When former IRS official Lois Lerner invoked her Fifth Amendment
