Last year, the Canadian province of Ontario fired CGI and canceled a $46 million contract, accusing the company of failing to build an online medical registry on time. Incompetent company hires AA corrupt politically connected friends / relatives of Michelle, Obama and Jarrett for epic fail. Where did the money go? 2 million for every man woman and child could have gone into Medical Savings Accounts to spend for lifetime healthcare of their choice. Epic theft and corruption. Irony, Fox clip of Obama lying in 2009 " if you like your heal care you can keep it." Standing behind him is Jon Corzine smiling obama bundler Why is Corzine not in jail with Madoff after violating law he voted for and destroying 100 year old company? How many of these Dems will go to jail - not WH dinners?
The arrogance and incompetence of this administration is appalling. And this incompetent administration will continue to pour money into this rat hole, much like they did in Solyndra, and Valerie´s daughter and son-in-law will receive bonuses. This is more disgusting than words can describe.
I have to laugh when I think of how the media and leftist rabblerousers hammered away at the mythical connections between the Machiavellian Cheney and Halliburton (the stock mostly plummeted during Cheney´s days as V.P. incidentally).
Where the media will be in coverering this particular example of bone fide malfeasance and nepotism I can predict with certainty - nowhere in sight.
I´m an American who has had enough. I want to know when a congressman/woman or US Senator will step up and confront Obama, his thugs, and the demonRATs with the truth. And I want to know who will demand that this muslim creep resign or face impeachment. Are we supposed to look the other way as two thirds of a billion dollars have Jarrett relatives involved in what happens to them, and when will we know the total of everything these grifters have already stolen, redirected, whatever. It isn´t enough that we have to look at the ugliest, creepiest FLOTUS in history, watch the Obama surly daughters copy mama, listen to and look at an American President who is now an openly recognized liar worldwide ...how much is enough and how long will we sit and watch Valerie and the Obamas continue to give the nation we love the finger and proceed as though it´s open season.?
This scuttlebutt and other items that have yet to be carried in lsm have been buzzing the net for days...it will all come to light, in part, because the IT world in DC is after a huge $market and they cut each other more viciously than investment bankers chasing deal...just order more popcorn...
It is unbelievable. It is so blatently In-Your-Face that they have to know they can get away with it. The Puppet Master, aka, ValJar, should be waterboarded for this as it is obvious she is behind it. Did they think that because it is a Canadian company we wouldn´t find out? Maybe. But one thing is for sure, they knew we would be incapable of intervening.
Okay, I´ve just fashioned a new tinfoil hat and made a fresh bowl of popcorn, so here goes...I´ve predicted for months that Joe Biden will be the Dims nominee in 2016, much to the chagrin of some of my fellow LDotters...well, where has he been in the recent budget/Obamacare battles? Remember Cheney saying he was kidnapped? Notice the rash of recent articles about ValJar and how she dines with POTUS/FLOTUS and has her fingers in everything? Apparently, the best way for Biden to get the nomination over PIAPS is to be the SITTING president...look for Zero to be gone by Summer 2014...
The silence of the Republicans (en masse, not 1 or 2) speaks volumes. The 3 branches of government are fully complicit when there is corruption, bribery, outrageous nepotism, etc., going on in the other branch. The U.S. Government is the master to which helpless hardworking taxpayers must bow. This is especially egregious and dirty with Obama but this has been going for decades to one degree or another.
Google Tony Balkissoon´s name and find masses of links. He is becoming notorious. It is interesting to note that he is a member of the Sidley, Austin law firm where Mooch and Obie "worked) - and he is also in Mooch´s old department, Intellectual Property.
I wouldn´t put too much in this. Both Jarrett (daughter) and her husband are associates at very large and highly reputable corporate law firms. CGI is a HUGE multinational IT firm (NYSE ticker GIB, $11 B market cap) and, as such, doesn´t hire Mattlock. It hires big firms like the ones Jarrett and her husband work for.
Is it conceivable their firms have done work for CGI? Absolutely. I suspect someone has misinterpreted something they read.
FIRST OF ALL : No one Else seems to have noted this, SO : Thanks to the L Comm Staff for getting this Posted.
$630 Million Here, $2.2 Billion There..There is so much taxpayer money being walked around by the Regime in Washington these days. The Country has become numb to what used to be head-jerking numbers of Dollars.
Where in the Hell is our vaunted system of "Checks and Balances" Are our Elected Representatives just going to let these Grifters just cart off trunks loaded with Taxpayer money while sitting by and watching? This Whole Situation reminds one of the chaos caused by the occasional incident of an Armored Truck with its doors open driving down a Street with loose money flowing out the back, and people rushing to pick it up and run off with the money.
31, I´m just doing arithmetic, and employing logic. Maybe that´s not politically correct here in the minds of some? Otherwise, enlighten me as to what I´m missing, because all you have added to this thread is ad hominem personal attack.

On Sunday night, I wrote a short post soliciting stories from my readers about how Obamacare has already immediately impacted their lives. I asked that all of these emails be directed to ObamacareMakesMeSick@Yahoo.com. I expected a response; I didn’t expect it to be quite so overwhelming. Over the last 24 hours, my inbox has been flooded with hundreds of emails. What you’ll read in this post represents a portion of them. I’m only one guy (with a fulltime job and twins) — I wasn’t able to go through every single message just yet. Some, I left out because the information
The recent theft of massive amounts of highly sensitive U.S. military equipment from Libya is far worse than previously thought, Fox News has learned, with raiders swiping hundreds of weapons that are now in the hands of militia groups aligned with terror organizations and the Muslim Brotherhood. The equipment, as Fox News previously reported, was used for training in Libya by U.S. Special Forces. The training team, which was funded by the Pentagon, has since been pulled, partly in response to the overnight raids last August. According to State Department and military sources, dozens of highly armored vehicles called GMV´s, provided
Details buried in the United Nations report on the Syrian chemical weapons attack point directly at elite military formations loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, some of the strongest findings to date that suggest the government gassed its own people. A weapons inspector collecting samples near Damascus. The inspectors, instructed to investigate the attack but not to assign blame, nonetheless listed the precise compass directions of flight for two rocket strikes that appeared to lead back toward the government’s elite redoubt in Damascus, Mount Qasioun, which overlooks and protects neighborhoods and Mr. Assad’s presidential palace and where his Republican Guard and the army’s
UNITED NATIONS – U.N. inspectors said Monday there was "clear and convincing evidence" that chemical weapons were used on a relatively large scale in an attack last month in Syria that killed hundreds of people.They said positive blood and urine specimens provided definitive evidence of exposure to the nerve agent sarin by a large proportion of the survivors assessed by investigators. These results were corroborated by clinical assessments, which documented symptoms and signs consistent with nerve agent exposure.The inspectors in a report said "the environmental, chemical and medical samples we have collected provide clear and convincing evidence that surface-to-surface rockets
(Article leads with chart) A Gallup poll conducted last month provides a powerful tribute to the wonders of Fox News. Gallup posed a wide-open question to more than 2,000 adults across the country: “Thinking about various sources of news available today, what would you say is your main source of news about current events in the U.S. and around the world?”The winner was “television” as a basket category, at 26 percent. The “Internet” took second place with 18 percent. And then came Fox News, at 8 percent.
“If you tell the truth you don’t have to remember anything.” -Mark Twain - It’s become clear to us that Ambassador Stevens was someone who cared deeply about his work to promote American diplomacy in Libya. He was one of four heroes who perished on September 11th, 2012 in the Benghazi attack.Stevens’ diary has never been made public, until now. It was first discovered and reported on, in brief, by CNN, but the news network soon caved in to outside pressure, most likely from President Obama’s staff, and ceased reporting on it all together.
Reacting to the news that the administration’s National Security Agency has been collecting the phone records of every American customer of at least one telephone service provider, the New York Times minced no words in a scathing editorial criticizing the practice and the lack of forthrightness from the White House. “The administration has now lost all credibility,” the Times editorial read. “Mr. Obama is proving the truism that the executive will use any power it is given and very likely abuse it.”
Credible sources indicate that the president of the United States watched in real time what might well be called the Benghazi snuff film.Among those sources is retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer. At the time of the assault, Shaffer relates, two U.S. drones were hovering to the consulate and recorded the final hours of the attack, which killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other brave Americans (From LCom Archive originally published November ´12)
The murderer is the new celebrity. He emerges out of nowhere with a rags to mass murder story, and is swiftly accorded all the trappings of fame. Reporters track down anyone who knew him to learn about his childhood and his main influences. Relatives and friends both contribute fuzzy anecdotes, mostly indistinguishable from the ones they would present if he were competing on American Idol or running for president.
A Republican strategist is reminding his party that President Reagan is dead. Ford O´Connell, who worked on Sen. John McCain´s (R-Ariz.) 2008 presidential campaign, says if Republicans want to win the White House in 2016, they need to break free of the "obsessive Reagan disorder." Rule #1 of the political analyst´s newly released book, "Hail Mary: The 10-Step Playbook for Republican Recovery," is: "Ronald Reagan is dead. Accept it." Such a sentiment is sure to be tough to digest for a party insistent on using the 40th president´s legacy as a GOP litmus test to prove conservative credentials. "The Reagan fixation is a drag
Jeffrey P. Bezos has never been known for thinking small. And in an interview aired Sunday on CBS´s "60 Minutes," he outlined his latest plan for revolutionizing the retail industry: using drones to deliver packages in as little as 30 minutes. Declaring himself an "optimist," the Amazon.com founder and chief executive predicted the technology could be brought to market in as little as five years. This is more than a theoretical idea. Bezos showed CBS´s Charlie Rose a working prototype of an eight-rotor helicopter drone called an "octocopter." Emblazoned with "Amazon Prime Air," the flying robot has a claw at
Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) said on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” Wednesday that when Jesus fed five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish, “he didn’t charge food stamps.” “When Jesus had those five loaves and two fishes, he didn´t charge food stamps. He didn´t ask anybody how much money they had. He fed them because they were hungry, and that´s really where we ought to be,” McDermott said in response to Republican critics of the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). In September, the House approved a plan by Republicans to cut $39 billion in food stamps over the next
An education official at a Texas high school is under fire after telling some female students they have been dressing like ‘hoes.’ According to KRIV Fox 26, School Support Officer Dr. Tameca Richardson made the remark to female students at Jack Yates High School in Houston during an assembly on campus. A spokesperson for the Houston Independent School District confirmed the language used by Richardson, the station reported. Some parents expressed anger over Richardson’s terminology, saying the Ph.D.-level educator should have used language that was less offensive. "That was out of line and she should be disciplined for that,"
MIDDLETOWN, Del.- Remembering the plot of a short story is no longer good enough in teacher Amy Lawson´s fifth-grade classroom. Today´s students are being asked to think more critically. For example, what might a character say in an email to a friend? "It´s hard. But you can handle this," Lawson tells them. Welcome to a classroom using the Common Core State Standards, one of the most politicized and misunderstood changes in education for students and their teachers in kindergarten through high school. In 45 states and the District of Columbia, Lawson and and other teachers are starting to use the standards
Gov. Chris Christie’s “bizarre behavior’’ in refusing to say he’ll support a possible GOP challenger to Gov. Cuomo next year could derail his chances to become president, state and national GOP insiders have told The Post. “Christie already has a problem with many Republicans refusing to forgive him because of his embrace of [President] Obama and his socially liberal policies,’’ said a nationally prominent GOP operative. “But this bizarre behavior in suggesting he won’t help a Republican defeat a Democratic governor, and a Cuomo no less, could finish off his chances of becoming his party’s nominee for president in 2016,’’ the
In the US we are used to abortion advocates claiming that the risk of elective abortion is relatively trivial, and major medical organizations denying any link between abortion and breast cancer. Now a powerful new study from China published last week by Yubei Huang and colleagues suggests otherwise. The article, a meta-analysis pooling 36 studies from 14 provinces in China, showed that abortion increased the risk of breast cancer by 44% with one abortion, and 76% and 89% with two and three abortions. This new article is another example of the recent excellent scholarship on abortion in peer-reviewed journals coming out
Senior officials in the White House have said that Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu “is desperate and weak,” in reaction to Netanyahu´s remonstrations against the deal struck with Iran over its nuclear weapons program. Israeli television Channel 10 quoted the officials as saying “His pronouncements show a lack of self-confidence,” in an unusually harsh personal attack on Netanyahu. “We are not perturbed by his vocal opposition.”
A push by activists to ease the 30-year-old blanket ban on blood donations from gay and bisexual men faces a key test this week as a federal panel hears results of the latest research. The findings will be released amid growing pressure from politicians and advocates, including college students, to change the policy. Critics say the ban is a hangover from the early, fear-filled days of AIDS, stigmatizing gay men and ignoring advances in treatment and detection in the decades since. Supporters of the policy say politics, not science, is driving the proposed change, which would heighten the risk of
President Obama completed an ambitious fundraising schedule for Democrats in November, but many of the congressional candidates he is trying to help are finding their election prospects next year imperiled by the president’s faulty health care law. Several polls in the past week have shown congressional Republicans pulling even or slightly ahead of Democrats in generic balloting for the midterm elections, a swing of at least 10 percentage points in less than a month. Pollsters attribute the seismic shift to the series of glaring flaws in Obamacare, most of which came to the public’s attention after the program’s rollout Oct.
Former Obama advisor David Plouffe appeared on This Week With George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning and predicted that President Barack Obama’s approval rating would rise over the next few months, following the increasing functionality of the Affordable Care Act. “This has been a tough task,” Plouffe said. “It’s not just health care. The shutdown affected everybody’s confidence in government. But let’s fast-forward to the State of the Union and the months after that. Health care working better, a lot of people signing up. The economy continuing to strengthen. Hopefully no Washington shutdowns.
So the troubled site apparently now works 90 percent of the time. That should be good news for Obama—but the question is whether Obamacare will get the mass enrollment it needs. HealthCare.gov finally works. Now people just need to use it. The error-plagued website, which was supposed to be the portal for Americans seeking to buy health insurance through the exchanges set up by the Affordable Care Act, is finally approaching basic functionality two months after it went online. In a report released Sunday, the Department of Health and Human Services breathlessly announced that the website now functions more than 90 percent of
