GOP, Don´t Be Comforted
by Sebelius´ Resignation

Cybercast News Service, by David Limbaugh

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/15/2014 11:44:03 AM

As horrible as Kathleen Sebelius has been as this nation´s health and human services secretary, she has been exactly who President Barack Obama wanted her to be. This was no rogue incompetent tinkering with America´s health care. This was one of Obama´s chief lieutenants, one who was doing his bidding every step of that treacherous road they traveled together. Don´t get me wrong; Sebelius was inexcusably bad — arrogant, defiant, uncompassionate, dogmatic and unrepentant. Obama cashiered her only because it was time to deflect blame from himself and change the channel. There is nothing incompatible between assigning major blame to Sebelius for all

Comments:
Limbaugh calls for more scrutiny in vetting Sylvia Mathews Burwell stating that it is inconceivable that she would be an impartial administrator. Let´s face it, not one individual that Obama nominates will ever be impartial. Period.

They can put Santa in charge, or the Easter Bunny or the Pope. It is not the face of obamacare that is the problem it is the "law" itself and the fact it pretty much sucks. High premiums, high deductibles, no choice in doctor or medical facility, etc. is the problem. That is what we will be taking with us into the voting booth in November, not the picture of sebelius.

A group that was targeted by the IRS is now offering up to $1 million for anyone who provides information leading to the conviction of anyone involved in the scandal. Catherine Engelbrecht, True the Vote founder and president, was among those targeted by the IRS. She was on “The Kelly File” tonight to discuss the $1 million bounty being offered. “The IRS bounty is just that – it is the people’s bounty for the truth,” she said of the funds, which are being put together by a group called The Voters Trust. To get the money, one must provide “relevant evidence including emails, eye-witness accounts, or testimony of political targeting

NC Restaurant With "No Weapons"

North Carolina restaurant The Pit was robbed at gunpoint on Sunday. Normally, local crime stories like this wouldn´t merit a Townhall post, but this one is different: The Pit has a "no weapons" sign displayed prominently on its door declaring the restaurant a gun-free zone, and bans patrons from carrying concealed weapons. Authorities said just before 9 p.m. Sunday, three men wearing hoodies entered the restaurant through the back doors with pistols, and forced several staff members to lie on the floor. The bandits assaulted two employees during the crime, but they were not seriously injured. What groups like Everytown for Gun

Amid growing Veterans Affairs scandal,
why Eric Shinseki is hard to fire
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/21/2014 9:59:59 PM     Post Reply
Some Washington insiders expected President Obama to announce the resignation of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki after the two men met in the Oval Office this morning. Yet even with the VA hospitals scandal gathering momentum each day, Obama chose to keep Shinseki in place. Why? There are several reasons. First, Shinseki is a decorated veteran himself, a retired four-star general and former Army Chief of Staff who was seriously wounded in Vietnam. Members of Congress, and all Americans for that matter, view that record with respect. Second, heading the VA is a tough and unglamorous job, and finding a

The House on Wednesday overwhelmingly passed a bill to grant the Veterans Affairs secretary expanded authority to fire senior executives for poor performance. The measure passed on a 390-33 vote amid allegations that veterans encountered delays in access to medical care at multiple VA hospitals across the country, leading to dozens of deaths. All 33 votes in opposition came from Democrats, including ledership Reps. Steny Hoyer (Md.) and James Clyburn (S.C.). House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) voted to approve the measure. Under the bill, the VA secretary would be authorized to dismiss senior executives or demote

   

 

  


 
The Victim Presidency

As many have remarked here, Barack Obama has a strange habit of acting like somebody else has been president these past years. It’s really odd. In his speech on the VA, the president said that he would not stand for things that he clearly and undeniably has stood for some years now, and swore that he would not tolerate that which has has been tolerating since 2009. He’s been described as acting like a bystander to his own presidency, but it’s more like he’s a victim of it, as though the presidency were this terrible thing that just happened to him one day that he’s now courageously dealing with.

FBI Director Agrees Fort Hood
Shooter Inspired by al-Qaeda

FBI Director James Comey agreed at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing today that Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan was inspired by al-Qaeda. The massacre at the Texas base is still branded an incident of “workplace violence,” despite longtime efforts within Congress to have it properly designated as a terrorist attack. “In your opening statement you mentioned al-Qaeda-inspired terrorism and I know you’re familiar — if not specifically, generally — with the facts of the 2009 attack at Fort Hood, Texas, when Major Nidal Hasan shot and killed 13 people, injured a couple dozen plus more,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) said when

“All I know is just what I read in the papers, and that’s an alibi for my ignorance.” — Will Rogers Has there ever been a president in the history of America who knew less than President Obama? With each new crisis and scandal, Mr. Obama tells Americans that he just didn’t know. He didn’t know the Veterans Administration was letting America’s veterans languish and die unattended — he learned about it in the newspaper. He didn’t know the Justice Department was trolling phone records of members of the U.S. media. He didn’t know the ATF was running guns into Mexico; didn’t know the

Will John Boehner’s House Speakership be able to survive the 2014 midterm elections? Even if Republicans retain control control of the chamber, one member of the Boehner’s is fairly certain the answer is “no.” During an appearance on Sean Hannity’s radio show Wednesday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) predicted that come January, the House will have a new Republican in charge. Gohmert reminded Hannity that he was the one Republican who nominated someone other than Boehner for speaker last year, while actually Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) joined him in voting for Allen West, who was kicked out of office after one

For the second time today, an interview with The New York Times has exposed what appears to be a decades-old instance of celebrity homophobia. First, in a TimesTalks discussion, John Cameron Mitchell revealed how David Letterman refused to shake his hand after a performance of Hedwig and Angry Inch more than 15 years ago. Now, playwright Larry Kramer is charging Barbara Streisand with saying she finds gay sex “distasteful.” Kramer has been trying to get his play The Normal Heart made into a movie since it first appeared Off-Broadway in 1985.

Priorities: A Marine Corps combat veteran remains in a Mexican jail after missing a freeway ramp and crossing the border with legally owned American firearms — without a single hash tag from the White House. It is a tough time for veterans these days, starting with those left to die — or even commit suicide — while on Veterans Administration waiting lists, seemingly abandoned by their commander-in-chief who early on promised to make things right and redress their grievances. Also seemingly abandoned is Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, a 25-year-old combat veteran, who was jailed in late March after he missed a

In a statement, a college spokesman said they were working with the Kennedy family to determine ´how best to preserve and curate this archive for the future´.

President Obama declared his outrage at allegations of misconduct at VA hospitals at a Wednesday press conference after an Oval Office meeting with Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki. "I will not stand for it — not as commander in chief, but also not as an American,” he told reporters as furor grows over allegations of treatment delays and preventable deaths at the health care facilities. The VA Inspector General’s office said late Tuesday that 26 facilities are being investigated nationwide — up from 10 just last week — including a Phoenix hospital where 40 veterans allegedly died while waiting for treatment and

A terrible sort of insanity has gripped the Democratic Party. On almost a daily basis, when you see the party’s leaders in action, you want to start edging toward the door, murmuring “Nice doggie. Nice doggie.” Today it was Howard Dean (filmed a week ago, but seen on YouTube today). He was addressing a Democratic crowd in Colorado, and went off on a tirade against Republicans. Yes, he really did say that Republicans aren’t American. And that they should stay away from the United States, and go to Russia where they belong. One gets the feeling that if the Democrats

Republicans’ hopes of winning back the Senate received a big boost in primary elections Tuesday, with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) easily winning and other candidates favored by the party establishment beating back tea party challengers. After years of intraparty turmoil that cost Republicans key races, voters this year are coalescing around the GOP’s strongest candidates ahead of November’s general election, when control of the Senate during President Obama’s final two years in office will be up for grabs. On Tuesday, the most consequential day of voting so far this year, Democrats were left disappointed. GOP Senate candidates prone to

Time after time, President Obama has reportedly learned of a number of big administration scandals in the media, from the IRS to Fast & Furious and now the VA scandal over wait times and veterans dying before receiving proper treatment (Jay Carney said today the president learned about this scandal through media reports). All this apparent unawareness before the fact led Charles Krauthammer to argue on Special Report today that Obama acts like he “stumbled upon the presidency” only to be shocked by how much wrong there really is. He lightly mocked the idea that Obama is “madder than hell”

With the latest Benghazi! ™ extravaganza about to begin, the Democrats are faced with a dilemma. Should they boycott the silly hearings, thus leaving the Republicans to put on their pageant unimpeded, or should they join in with a full panel and add legitimacy to the process? The problem seems to be that whether they like it or not, these hearings are going to be covered. And if the press reaction so far tells us anything, they are looking for a show. This is why they should follow the advice of Ari Rabin-Havt in the American Prospect who says that

Answer: 4, all of the above.Those are the most obvious explanations for why the White House thought it could get away with claiming that the departure of Veterans Affairs official Dr. Robert Petzel was a step toward accountability for its scandalous treatment of war veterans.Fact is, the department announced in 2013 that Petzel would retire this year."Well, Secretary Shinseki accepted Dr. Petzel´s resignation this afternoon.

Today, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney sought to partially walk back his statement yesterday in which he said President Obama learned about the growing scandal at the Veterans Administration by watching a report on the topic on CNN. After realizing just how bad that sounded, Carney returned to the daily briefing with the White House press corps today to say that his statement was being misinterpreted. According to Carney, what he really meant to say was that the president had only heard of the “specific allegations” about misconduct at VA hospitals by watching television. But, he insisted, the president
