Just How Corrupt is the
Obama Administration?

Front Page Magazine, by Arnold Ahlert

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/20/2013 6:12:31 AM

Scandal after scandal, coupled with an ongoing contempt for the law and the Constitution, demonstrated by high-level officials and the president himself, point to one deeply troubling conclusion: the Obama administration may be the most corrupt administration ever inflicted on the American public. And while the mainstream media have done a remarkable job deflecting much of that reality, even they cannot keep up with the avalanche of disturbing revelations that arise, seemingly on a daily basis. We begin with yet another report about the Fast and Furious gunrunning operation, courtesy of Sharyl Attkisson, one of the few remaining reporters who follows

Life´s but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

We all know this and still nothing will be done. Democrats have no problems with these kinds of scandals, law breaking and the destruction of the Constitution as long as a Democrat is doing it. If this was a Republican doing it the Democrats and msm would be apoplectic. The elite GOP and the Rinos are more concerned that any confrontation will garner them some bad press or worse be called a racist so the Republic continues to burn with that "weido" in the WH.

We did a great disservice to the nation when we went after Clinton over nonessential issues. The impeachment shot was fired over something of substance but not one of national survival. Now we have the latter and the thought of the GOP seeking to impeach yet another democrat president is a harder sell to the lofo´s. Then we have further desensitizing of the public with genuinely ridiculous charges brought against Bush. The laundry list of Obama´s transgressions looks like politics as usual, same BS different day. This provides cover for a truly dangerous and destructive administration to tear at the national fabric as thought it was unnoticed.

None of this matters.
Ø is black. He is an affirmative action employee. Therefore he need meet no standards.
He has Harry Reid solidly behind him.
He has the entire Senate solidly behind him.
They love what he is doing, as he is bringing in the big bucks to the Dem campaigns.
We can´t vote in Repubs. They have no chance, since all the vote counting is rigged by the Dems.
Nothing can be done about stuffed ballot boxes.
Instead of one man, one vote, we have one fictional voter, many ballots.
Dems cheat, they win elections, they serve no one but themselves.
The media is owned by them; broadcast licenses are issued only to camp followers.

We are so helpless!

Sigh.

Trey Gowdy is a busy guy, and an up-and-coming senator says he should be on the Supreme Court. ? Over the past year or so, Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican congressman, has drawn substantial national attention, winning adulation from Tea Party activists who like his tough questioning in committee hearings. His growing prominence and indisputably Southern demeanor have made him one of the standouts from the 2010 House class. He’s in good company. Gowdy entered the House in the 2010 Tea Party wave along with three other freshman South Carolina Republicans: Tim Scott, Jeff Duncan, and Mick Mulvaney. The four were nicknamed

Putin Endangering Russia´s Oil Supply
By Flexing Muscles In Ukraine
Breitbart Big Peace, by Sen. Rand Paul    Original Article
Posted By: SpeedMaster- 3/6/2014 8:31:53 AM     Post Reply
Russia´s Putin has invaded his neighbor’s sovereign territory. He must and will face serious repercussions for doing so, and the international community must make the price severe. Unless we are willing to go to war for Ukraine—and I believe that would be unwise—Russia without question has the military might and geographic advantage to control the Crimea and the Russian dominated areas of Ukraine. But at what cost? Russia´s stock market is dropping precipitously and their economy is quite dependent on exports that depend on a stable Ukraine.

In two years, a national movement for a constitutional convention of states will be a hot issue “over and above the presidential election,” the effort’s Georgia state director predicted. “To me and to us, this is liberty or death,” said Jacqueline S.

Russia’s invasion of Crimea is a tipping point event that will further spur the American oil boom. The European Union (EU) and United States in 2008 threatened to slap economic sanctions on Russia for invading Georgia. But after a while the criticism faded and threats of sanctions were quietly dropped, because the EU is almost entirely reliant on Russia for energy supplies. A similar situation is unfolding today as the EU and U.S. are again making empty threats that they will stop exports of Russian oil and gas as punishment for invading the Ukraine. But due to the latest humiliation by

House Speaker John A. Boehner, who has tangled repeatedly with the right wing of the Republican Party, has not been invited to this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference, a major snub at the annual gathering and a sign of the top Republican officeholder’s struggle to find common ground with grass-roots activists. People familiar with CPAC’s planning, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity, said the American Conservative Union, which hosts the event, never sent an invitation to Mr. Boehner, in part because it wanted the focus this year to be on leading conservative thinkers at the grass-roots level and not

Some American Thinker readers may be aware that at the end of December (2013) Tim Burton, a host for Liberty Great Britain (GB) radio was charged by West Midlands Police (England) with "racially aggravated harassment." Mr. Burton´s "hate crime" was a post on Twitter which described Fiyaz Mughal (who runs an "anti-Islamophobia" website/organisation called Tell MAMA) as a "mendacious grievance-mongering taqiyya-artist." As a result of all this, Burton was supposed to have stood trial on the 18th February 2014 at Birmingham Magistrates´ Court. However, that court appearance has been postponed for seven weeks.

More told the Senate committee that he decided to leave Greenpeace because it was more concerned with politics than it was with the environment.

As Black History Month draws to a close, we must not forget a great American that should be honored and studied the whole year through. Booker T. Washington, author of the autobiography Up from Slavery, presents solutions as applicable today as they were in his pivotal time in history. In his 1895 address to the Atlanta Exposition (a gathering of mostly-white leaders in the fields of commerce and industry), Mr. Washington, just 30 years after the close of the Civil War, said:

The Suicide of Unions

The recent vote by workers in Tennessee not to set up labor councils at Volkswagen operations is another stunning defeat for unions. The power of these unions, once among the most feared in American politics, has imploded in the last three years. Republicans in state government, who are much more principled conservatives than Washington Republicans, have been courageous and wise. Scott Walker and his modest plans to bring public employee unions back into the realm of fiscal sanity were attacked in a prolonged and vicious campaign rarely seen in politics today. Wisconsin has historically been a state in which unions held

The civil war between the Tea Party and the GOP Establishment has been brutal. But could it be the reason congressional Republicans aren´t putting the heat on President Obama for the IRS scandal? Democratic pollster Pat Caddell thinks so, and radio host Rush Limbaugh said it´s plausible. One historian even told Breitbart News the modern GOP resembles a "crime family." "The establishment Republicans want the IRS to go after the Tea Parties," Caddell told Fox News on Sunday.

As is generally the case in Washington, last week’s debt-ceiling increase demonstrated once again that responsible solutions to help all Americans and their children live better lives are cast aside in favor of short-term political considerations. I ran for Congress to solve the greatest problem facing our nation today and in the future — the national debt. The former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, has called the national debt “the most significant threat to our national security,” not to mention to our prosperity and that of future generations.

During a hearing of the House Oversight Committee into allegations that the Internal Revenue Service scrutinized conservative groups’ tax-exempt status filings unduly, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) exploded at Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (D-CA). Cummings charged that the way in which the proceedings were being conducted were “Un-American.” In apparent protest, Issa then walked out of the committee hearing. While making a statement before the committee, Issa stood up and asked Cummings to yield. “If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question,” Cummings insisted. “I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America.” “I am

We are embroiled in a global conflict, and the supposed “leader of the free world” is taking photo ops at a grade school, making statements about the invasion of Ukraine on a kids’ rug. Meanwhile, Putin incredibly denied that any Russian troops are in Ukraine, and somehow President Barack ‘I-call-the-Russian-invasion-an-uncontested-arrival’ Obama actually thought it was a good idea to set up a lectern on a grade school alphabet mat when the entire world is seeing the consequences of his weakness. This was the guy known for dramatic stagecraft and brilliant political framing, and this is what we get? Just amazing.

At Chipotle, guacamole costs extra - but it soon may not be available at all thanks to climate change. The Denver, Colorado-based chain of Mexican fast-food restaurants threatened to take the condiment off the menu because of the rising price of avocados. While the avocado crop is currently fine, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are predicting drier temperatures will lead to a 40 per cent drop in California´s avocado crop over the next 32 years. Most modern scientists agree that there is a direct correlation between the increase of droughts and global warming, according to Think Progress.

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.

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.

As a U.S. senator, Barack Obama won $48 million in federal funding to help Ukraine destroy thousands of tons of guns and ammunition--weapons which are now unavailable to the Ukrainian army as it faces down Russian President Vladimir Putin during his invasion of Crimea. In August 2005, just seven months after his swearing-in, Obama traveled to Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine with then-Indiana Republican Senator Dick Lugar, touring a conventional weapons site. The two met in Kiev with President Victor Yushchenko, making the case that an existing Cooperative Threat Reduction Program covering the destruction of nuclear weapons should be expanded to
