Obama can´t duck responsibility
for the VA scandal

Washington Examiner [DC], by Editorial*

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 5/20/2014 5:22:26 AM

President Obama said last year that he was angry when he first heard about the Internal Revenue Service targeting hundreds of conservative and Tea Party non-profit applicants for illegal harassment during the 2010 and 2012 campaigns. Nine months later, during his Super Bowl halftime interview with Fox News´ Bill O´Reilly, Obama laughingly claimed “not even a smidgen of corruption” was found in the IRS scandal, even though the faux investigation by the Justice Department and the real one by the House Oversight and Government Reform and Ways and Means committees were far from completed. Now Obama is said to be

What in the hell does he know? Why is he here? Seems to me he is pretty much useless. Responsible, my administration doesn´t need to be responsible. They used to make fun of Bush because he didn´t travel extensively abroad, didn´t seem to have much "curiosity" about other countries. Well, this jocko doesn´t seem to have any curiosity about American except as it pertains to it´s demise. This VA mess is a foreshadowing of obamacare and the future of medicare. Be careful America, be very cautious. The only thing obama does well is stick it to America and steal our wealth.

Wouldn´t it be ironic is this is the scandal that is able to make the scales fall from the eyes of many of Obama´s supporters and they are finally able to see exactly just who Obama is. All the public support of the military by Obama and his misses would be understood to be just that, an outward show with no real substance.

Be prepared for Obama to come out in high dudgeon waving the flag of moral outrage. It is his only card to play and he knows it. Plus, he knows the media will go right along with his dramatics. They will play up his outrage to cover up that fact that he essentially did nothing when he knew of this problem. He must be held accountable. He wanted the big job and with it comes the responsibility of acting on information that you are given. He could have made a difference in the outcome we see today and he CHOSE not to act on the information he had. Maybe a little less time spent on the golf course and more time spent actually doing the job he declared, "he was pretty good at" would give his ´mad as hell´ attitude a little more believeability.

He can and will duck responsibility. First and foremost, the folks that support Obambi, and that includes the vast Kneepad Media, hate the military and veterans. They could care less abut the plight our Vets face at the hands of the VA system. As we have already seen, major ´news´ outlets protect Obambi by not even mentioning the VA scandal. The best form of defense is to ignore the reality. Even if they did, the majority of their audience despises veterans and will probably be indifferent to the treatment our vets are suffering. With the Kneepads carrying his water once again, this ´scandal´ becomes another ´what does it matter at this point´ story.

True enough, he does have the responsibility for this even if just by virtue of the office he holds. One might even assume he, or a combination of the inner circle, has the power to fix it. Now the real problem is the same old systemic issue that the regime can not escape-- they are inept and incompetent, most being like him, either coddled through life or a product of affirmative action.

I´m a disabled vet. The VA scandal is serious and will probably cause Obama more problems, but to me the attack by Obama´s IRS on conservative groups is an attack on the very foundations of our freedom and form of government. I hope the VA Scandal does not become a diversion from the abuse of power at the IRS with assistance of the DOJ. Sloppy management is not the same corruption and the democrats can hide behind sloppy management. .

Personally, I am sick and tired of "incompetence" being used to explain the agitator-in-chief´s actions. IMO he is absolutely competent and proves it everyday by his actions He is thoroughly enjoying what he is doing and so are his minions. Day after day he looks into the camera with that jackal-like insulting toothy "smile" which causes most sane people to gag. But, why not? He has done nearly everything he promised to do when he was running in 2008 and is well on his way to completing the "transformation" (destruction) of a once great country along with our once-cherished freedoms. He is not only competent, but an anti-America-anti-capitalist-anti-Military-pro-stalinist-race-baiter who has the leftist-obama-worshipping-msm protecting him. God help this country!

LOS OLIVOS, Calif. -- From outside the gates of Neverland Ranch, it appears as if Michael Jackson´s former home and fantasyland has been frozen in time. The backyard circus is long gone, but heartfelt notes placed by saddened fans at the property´s entrance remain intact five years after Jackson´s death. And visitors are still making the pilgrimage. "I figured it would just be a closed gate, but I still wanted to see it for myself," said James Chen of Seattle, a fan who stopped outside Neverland during a recent road trip with his father.

Zero evidence of a Walker "criminal scheme"
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel [WI], by Christian Schneider    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/21/2014 5:59:00 AM     Post Reply
Sometimes, the court of public opinion overrules a state’s actual courts. And in Scott Walker’s case, there is little chance for appeal. On Thursday morning, hundreds of pages of documents relating to the “John Doe II” investigation of Gov. Scott Walker’s 2012 recall campaign were ordered released. These documents comprised a number of legal filings by both prosecutors and defendants. But some media and liberal groups picked up on one specific 2013 charge by prosecutors that alleged Walker had been part of a “criminal scheme” to circumvent campaign finance laws. Immediately, national news outlets and liberal activists ran with the

President Barack Obama and wife Michelle have never been your typical working stiffs. With four Ivy League degrees between them, they’ve enjoyed high incomes and strong job security. But before and during college, they each worked minimum-wage jobs. And there was a time when they felt the same kind of financial aches and marriage strains that today’s dual-income families know all too well. As a young married couple in Chicago, they were mired in student debt, juggling multiple jobs and two kids, and bickering over who did what housework. “I wouldn’t fold,” remembers the president. “I didn’t separate, and Michelle’s

If I close my eyes, I can remember the first apartment where I lived with my family in Newark, N.J., in the late 1930s. The rooms were lined up like train cars—you had to go through one to get to another—and there wasn´t any heat or hot water. Heat came from the kitchen stove that ran all day on coal, and if you needed hot water for a bath or to wash, a huge kettle was put up. Fortunately, when I was 6, my family moved to Stephen Crane Village, Newark´s first low-income housing project. I thought we were rich. We

Democrats are giddy over the unsealing of “secret” documents that charge Scott Walker’s recall campaign with illegal coordination with outside conservative groups. To name just a few: USA Today: “Prosecutors: Wis. Gov. Scott Walker in criminal scheme.” Associated Press: “Prosecutors: Gov. Walker part of criminal scheme.” Washington Post: “How the State of Wisconsin alleges Scott Walker aides violated the law, in 1 chart.” If you didn’t know better, you might think this is a big story, highly damaging to one of America’s most successful governors. In fact, the current frenzy merely demonstrates the laziness and bias of reporters who don’t understand

Steve Scalise is known for giving his friends a little bit extra. In Louisiana, it’s called lagniappe. Anytime anyone did a favor for the Louisiana Republican — whether they made a call for him, or spoke up on behalf of a bill he favored — they would find themselves on the receiving end of lagniappe (LAN-yap), or a small unexpected gift. Sometimes it was a praline — Scalise has a basket of them sitting, wrapped in plastic, on a coffee table next to the couch in his office in the Rayburn House Office Building.

Looking too good could literally become a crime under newly proposed federal legislation, which would give the Federal Trade Commission power to regulate Photoshop image editing software use in advertising and other media. The Truth in Advertising Act of 2014 or “Anti-Photoshop Act” was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives earlier this year by Florida Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen along with Democrats Lois Capps of California and Theodore Deutch of Florida. If enacted, the bill will empower the FTC to regulate and reduce the use of Photoshopped images in media. “The Truth in Advertising Act has already sparked more awareness of

LAWRENCEVILLE, Va. - Contrite federal officials apologized to residents of a tiny southern Virginia town Thursday night for keeping them in the dark as they prepared to bring in hundreds of Central American children and teenagers to a temporary shelter. "Absolutely, we feel we didn´t do it right here," said Mark A. Weber, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. "We´re here to listen to the community. We´re here to sort this out." He was speaking prior to the meeting. An overflow crowd packed the 900-seat Brunswick High School auditorium in the farming town of nearly 1,500. Many

Former presidential candidate John Edwards confessed to his daughter that he´d had an affair as his cancer-stricken wife was waiting nearby in the same house. Ivy-League educated Cate Edwards has revealed that she was summoned to her family´s luxury North Carolina mansion in either the summer of 2007 or 2008 by her father so he could break the news. She says he then went on to admit that he had cheated on her mom Elizabeth.

Al Gore has a plan for America. But in order to get the nation on board, he’s got to convince us that’s he’s super cool. But Mr. Gore also has a problem. That is, he’s about as cool as Baghdad. And, well, writing 7,071 words in Rolling Stone magazine — a magazine that maybe used to be cool, according to VH1 (but now, no one reads) — isn’t really going to convince a soul, as our in-depth video investigation exposed:(Snip for video) Still, Mr. Gore tries. For example, he mentions “Koch” 17 times. (That’s Charles and David Koch, the libertarian billionaires.) And

President Obama´s approval rating has dropped to 41 percent, a majority of Americans disapprove of his handling of foreign policy issues, he has lost support from the Hispanic community and Americans actually think his administration is less competent than the Bush White House post-Hurricane Katrina, according to a new survey from the Wall Street Journal and NBC News. In short, the poll is nothing but bad news for the president. The survey would appear to be so bad, in fact, that NBC News´ Chuck Todd said Tuesday that the poll basically means the public has declared the Obama presidency to be

Michelle Obama is trying to save the 2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. And who isn’t for healthy and hunger-free kids, right? It turns out that it was a struggle for her and she’s got an idea about how the government can make it easier for others. In an interview with MSN’s Healthy Living, she made two particular statements that deserve further comment. Before coming to the White House, I struggled, as a working parent with a traveling, busy husband, to figure out how to feed my kids healthy, and I didn’t get it right. Our pediatrician had to pull me aside and point out some things that were going wrong.

It has become a daily frightening occurrence, hearing politicians, commentators, pundits, and stunned Americans say, “That´s outrageous!” “He can´t do that!” “No way!” “It´s against federal law!” “They have no legal authority to force us to do that!” These comments are in response to the daily unprecedented out-of-control tyranny handed down by Obama and his operatives.

I have been listening all week to TV pundits lamenting that Lois Lerner’s hard drive has been destroyed, and therefore her e-mails are lost. This is simply not the case. I never cease to be amazed at the lack of understanding of how the e-mail system works. When you write an e-mail, it goes to your server to be sent to the person you e-mailed. Your server keeps a copy of that e-mail, and of all your e-mails – sent and received. When you create all the folders in your e-mail program that you use to save e-mails in...these are also

WASHINGTON -- The commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service refused to apologize to Congress for losing e-mails related to its targeting of conservative groups, saying it´s still attempting to recover the data and it´s too soon to know how many e-mails are missing.

The Obama administration’s claim to have been surprised by the wave of children flooding over out borders may turn out to be another political lie of the year. Sundance of Conservative Treehouse noticed a very peculiar advertisement: On January 29th of this year, the federal government posted an advertisement seeking bids for a vendor contract to handle “Unaccompanied Alien Children“. Not just any contract mind you, but a very specific contract – for a very specific number of unaccompanied minors: 65,000. • Why would DHS and ICE be claiming “surprise” by the current influx of unaccompanied minors on the border

President Obama told his Mexican counterpart in a phone call Thursday that immigrants crossing into the U.S. illegally won’t qualify for legalized status or deferred deportation, including children. The White House said Mr. Obama and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto discussed “a regional strategy” to address the surge of unaccompanied children coming from Central America, through Mexico, to the U.S. With thousands of children trying to enter the U.S. illegally in recent months, Vice President Joseph R.

He said the federal government recognizes same-sex marriages of foreign diplomats stationed in the U.S., and it expects all other countries to do the same in their treatment of U.S. personnel deployed abroad. “Let me be clear: We oppose any effort by any country to deny visas for spouses of American staff,” he said. “It’s discriminatory, it’s unacceptable, it has no place in the 21st century.”

Mitt Romney, seen as too stiff and robotic to win over enough voters to claim the presidency in 2012, is undergoing his latest reboot, trying to become the Republican Party´s elder statesman in an Image overhaul different from his predecessors who lost their bids for the White House. Twenty years ago, Romney was a would-be giant killer, conservatives´ best hope to defeat liberal icon Sen. Ted Kennedy in 1994. Then he became the savior of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Utah, turned moderate Massachusetts governor. In 2012, he was a presidential candidate never fully embraced by his party. And now, he´s
