White House delayed
enacting rules ahead of 2012 election
to avoid controversy

Washington Post, by Juliet Eilperin

The White House systematically delayed enacting a series of rules on the environment, worker safety and health care to prevent them from becoming points of contention before the 2012 election, according to documents and interviews with current and former administration officials. Some agency officials were instructed to hold off submitting proposals to the White House for up to a year to ensure that they would not be issued before voters went to the polls, the current and former officials said.

The White House says the delays were coincidental and without regard to politics. We believe that, just like we believe we can keep our insurance!

If only you so called journalists had done your job in 2012 we would not be in this situation. Stop reporting you suckups!

If the government has to hide what it´s doing then it obviously doesn´t have the good of the nation at it´s center and is not working for the people but rather against them (us.)

The focus of this article has nothing to do with the obvious fact that the American public was fooled because they didn´t have the facts necessary to make an informed decision in 2012. Instead, the outrage centers on the idea that their precious rules were delayed.

My question is if these rules were know ahead of the election would the results have been any different? I doubt it. First the msm wouldn´t have reported on them. Secondly there is massive inner city vote fraud that allows the Democrats "flexibility" in getting the vote count needed. Mitt was demonized by obama and his toe sucking msm. obama still had the "cool" black dude factor back then.

I am far from a constitutional scholar, but this sentence caught my eye: "The EPA recently withdrew a proposal to outline what kind of water bodies deserve federal protection that had been pending since February 2012 and announced it would issue a legally binding rule instead." A legally binding rule? Isn´t that a law? Isn´t it the legislative branch that enacts laws? To me it seems that these rules and regulations coming out of all these departments and agencies are clearly in violation of the Constitution. Our prosperity is being regulated away by out of control progressive ideologues.

Timing is everything when you want to take away a nation’s freedoms and subjugate the populace. The aspiring dictator must put in place elaborate mechanisms to control people before they rise up to resist – before they are even aware of the importance of resistance.

Obama desperately needs, and has found, a lapdog press to lull the people into acquiescence until the chains are in place.

True Headline:
"Washington Post delayed reporting White House rules shenanigans ahead of 2012 election to avoid controversy."

Next they may uncover that TEA Party groups were denied their right to organize ahead of 2012 election. Or maybe that a polling place sting showed how easy it was for people to vote for other people (i.e. the guy who claimed to be Eric Holder and was waved through).

I´m sorry. The elections are a sham and the media is a sham.

The leftist press must now feel it´s safe to report before they clam up again next year.

At this point in time, what difference does it make what the Spite House systematically did or did not do in order to skew the election? There will never be any consequences for any action they take. And it probably wouldn´t mattered anyway with the fine tuned Fraud Machine running the election.

Other then the pile of rubble this nation is going to have to clean up in a few years, I don´t know what difference anything makes at this point, and I´m not sure the nation is even going to be able to clean up the mess. Not the way things are going at this time.

MengleCare is like on of those buildings scheduled for demolition where the explosive experts have set charges to go off in sequence, and the building implodes in on itself.

Every clause and paragraph of that 2,000+ page monstrosity is set with an explosive charge, it was designed that way, and since October 1, those charges have been going off one by one.

I´m still trying to decide whether the Spite House didn´t take Unintended Consequences into consideration when they decided to take America down, or whether they thought the Mulatto Communist could keep on charming Joe and Jane Stupid and all would be fine and dandy.

Environment? Hell, the White House dictocrats have stripped away the medical insurance "environment" from many millions of innocent families to inflict otherwise avoidable pain and death on those millions who´ve been, and are continuing to be, virtually ATTACKED by Obama, Biden, Jaret, Puglosi and those dozens of other corrupt, secretive CZARS.
The Big Delay, of all times, The Biggest Bald Faced Cover Up of An Outright Vicious Act, by Obama and Hillary, was abandoning our own men at Benghazi.
There are only two irresponsible liars in this disaster.
And that´s the plain truth ! Exactly what Lawrence Sellin called for yesterday ! The Diane Sawyers and the Steve Pelleys, are elegantly forbidden to tell the truth. They are most elegant, serious, Traitors to the Truth !

There are many who recognized that he is out to destabalize this country but if he thinks he gets to be the ultimate ruler then there are many outside forces that will prove he´s a fool when they destroy what is left of the USA when they get here. Does he believe that some terrorist regime will spare him or does he even understand how vulnerable we have become economically and militarily ? How do people not see the fool ?

Right, #12.

Rules and Regulations have the force of Law, although Congress has not written and passed them as Laws... and yet, without our being properly represented in the concoction of these Rules, etc., we are subjected to them.

And, we pay a price for these Rules and Regulations, beyond monetarily.

Put these on the same level as Fees and Fines and Penalties, terminology used --again-- to obviate the reality: they are taxes.

As someone has said (heard on Ravi Zacharias this morning) we live in a generation when people "listen with their eyes, and think with their feelings."

For this reason, i am not hopeful that we can stop this locomotive before it reaches the dismantled bridge, using the bridge as a metaphor for Reason, Logic, History.

Remember how Obama told overseas leaders to ignore his campaign rhetoric, because it was only applicable to getting votes -- he would "have more flexibility" after the election.

In case the leg-trickle libs in the media hadn´t noticed, they´re trying to pull the same trick again for 2014...

Well, in my opinion, and millions of others, Obama STOLE the election by putting his own political goals ahead of the USA. Been like this for almost 5 years now. Some are just catching on and others have known all the time. Obama´s goals and that of patriots have always been on divergent paths. Obamacare, Benghazi, IRS profiling, the Middle East Arab WINTER, Fast and Furious gunrunning, and other scandalous acts have brought he U.S. to a tipping point. The National debt may have already tipped.

And why do they do this kind of stuff?
Not just because they are corrupt to the core. They also do it because they are allowed.

They know that ´The Loyal Opposition´; (the wimpy GOP) will do nothing to stop them.

The wimpy GOP uses as an excuse "Oh, we can never get a conviction in the Senate, so why should we rock the boat with an impeachment vote in the House?"

"Oh, we better not complain about 0bama´s usurpation of our Constitutional powers and duties. The media will say bad things about us, and we won´t get invited to the cool parties anymore."

I don´t blame the Democrats and 0bama for this. They are just doing what is in their nature to do. Even if they don´t have the numbers to succeed, the Republicans are as much to blame, because they refuse to do their moral and Constitutional Duty.

And I blame the stupid ´peasants´ and the corrupt elections officials who put these Destroyers and Looters in office. TWICE, when it was obvious to anyone with at least two brain cells to occasionally collide inside their skulls just exactly what sort of people they were voting for.

WASHINGTON — President and Mrs. Obama will visit Fort Hood on Wednesday for a memorial service after the most recent deadly shooting spree, the White House said Sunday. Army Spc. Ivan Lopez killed three soldiers and wounded 16 others before taking his own life on Wednesday, the second mass shooting at Fort Hood in the last five years. Obama also attended the memorial in November 2009 after a spree by Maj. Nidal Hasan. The Army psychiatrist killed 13, and has since been sentenced to death by a court martial. After visiting Fort Hood, Obama headlines fundraisers later Wednesday in Houston for the Democrats’

The Obama administration is engaged in a broad push to make more home loans available to people with weaker credit, an effort that officials say will help power the economic recovery but that skeptics say could open the door to the risky lending that caused the housing crash in the first place. President Obama’s economic advisers and outside experts say the nation’s much-celebrated housing rebound is leaving too many people behind, including young people looking to buy their first homes and individuals with credit records weakened by the recession.

PALM CITY, Fla. – President Obama on Sunday displayed the freedom that comes with not having another election ahead of him, golfing with Tiger Woods in an enclave of privilege here along Florida’s blustery Atlantic coast. Since his reelection in November, Obama has been talking about the perils facing America’s middle class, highlighted in his State of the Union address last week. On Friday he visited a public high school in his hometown of Chicago, where he spoke in personal terms about the need to reduce gun violence and create jobs in the country’s troubled urban areas.

President Obama summoned congressional leaders to a Friday summit at the White House in a last-ditch effort to protect taxpayers, unemployed workers and the fragile U.S. recovery from severe austerity measures set to hit in just four days. Also Thursday, House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) announced that he would call the House back into session this weekend. And in perhaps the most significant development, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for the first time was engaged directly in talks with the White House. He signaled an interest in cutting a deal.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”?

Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
