A nation of shameless frauds, abetted by an infestation of political cockroaches. They feed upon each other.

This is the reason for the decline in the unemployment rate.

When goobermint gets too big, massive fraud is always the result. Disability claims is just a tiny slice of the fraud pie. If you report a disability fraud case to the goobermint, nothing happens. The goobermint will only investigate the big fraud cases involving many people and millions of dollars. The little cases will be ignored, but if you add all these little cases up, they surpass the big ones in money value. Goobermint is too stupid beyond belief.

Lara Logan, Sharyl Attkisson, Judith Miller — all esteemed investigative reporters. Among numerous other awards, Ms. Miller is a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter. Ms. Logan and Ms. Attkisson have both won numerous Emmys and Edward R. Murrow Awards for their investigative journalism. In other words, they are serious, recognized, accomplished and fearless women who exemplify what it takes to be investigative journalists. They are all women who are under attack. Their crime? They dared to follow stories to their natural conclusions, instead of to a preferred liberal end. None of these women are victims, as they continue to thrive despite liberal

   

 

  


 
How the Clintons went from ‘dead

$104.9 million for speeches
Washington Post, by Philip Rucker,*    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/27/2014 11:19:00 AM     Post Reply
Over seven frenetic days, Bill Clinton addressed corporate executives in Switzerland and Denmark, an investors’ group in Sweden and a cluster of business and political leaders in Austria. The former president wrapped up his European trip in the triumphant Spanish Hall at Prague Castle, where he shared his thoughts on energy to a Czech business summit. His pay: $1.4 million. That lucrative week in May 2012 offers a glimpse into the way Clinton has leveraged his global popularity into a personal fortune. Starting just two weeks after exiting the Oval Office, Clinton has delivered hundreds of paid speeches, lifting a

MCALLEN, Texas— The first lady of Honduras is to tour South Texas immigration shelters to learn the plight of thousands of Hondurans who entered the United States illegally. Ana Garcia de Hernandez already has met Thursday morning with McAllen Mayor Jim Darling. Starting Friday, she is scheduled to visit several Border Patrol stations in the Rio Grande Valley and plans to remain in the area through Saturday. The Border Patrol has been overwhelmed in the region by the number of immigrants entering the country illegally. About three-quarters of them are from Central America, with the most coming from Honduras. More

All job growth since 2000 has
gone to immigrants -- legal and illegal
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article

The Center for Immigration Studies has released a report that should be political dynamite. Since the year 2000, legal and illegal immigrants have taken all new jobs, while native-born Americans have suffered a decline in the numbers employed. Government data show that since 2000 all of the net gain in the number of working-age (16 to 65) people holding a job has gone to immigrants (legal and illegal). This is remarkable given that native-born Americans accounted for two-thirds of the growth in the total working-age population. Though there has been some recovery from the Great Recession, there were still fewer

It was a front page story in the New York Times: "Wisconsin Governor at Center of a Vast Fund-Raising Case." Walker´s hometown paper the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel chimed in, "John Doe prosecutors allege Scott Walker at center of ´criminal scheme.´ Liberal pundits all over the web were falling all over themselves trying to make the case that the Wisconsin governor was finished as potential 2016 candidate and that it was doubtful if he would even finish his term of office. "How much trouble is Scott Walker in," asked the Cap Times of Madison, WI. Why, none. None at all: A Wisconsin

Our friend John Eastman is the chairman of the National Organization for Marriage. After months of evasion and denial, the IRS has now admitted that it illegally leaked the names of NOM’s donors to a third party who saw to their publication. The IRS agreed to settle NOM’s case against it on the basis of a consent judgment under which it will receive $50,000 as actual damages. I wrote about the settlement yesterday in “Crimes of the IRS, NOM edition.” Despite the relevance of this case to the current controversies involving the IRS, and the illumination it casts on them,

In a cable exclusive, Megyn Kelly got to interview Bill Ayers, a controversial figure known primarily for his involvement in the radical group Weather Underground and for his past association with President Obama that Republicans went after Obama for in 2008. Kelly showed a sneak peek of her big interview on her show tonight. In the clips Kelly aired, she confronts Ayers about the number of bombings the Weather Underground was responsible for, and also the number Ayers personally was involved in. Ayers declined to comment on that. Kelly brought up the continuing violence from the Weather Underground and a

President Obama looked to curry favor with his traveling press corps on Thursday, offering to treat reporters to an ice cream cone during a stop at a Minnesota dessert parlor. "Press, you guys want some? On me. No? Is that unethical?” Obama asked reporters who accompanied him to the Grand Ole Creamery, a Twin Cities chain. “I’m trying to soften you up.” Obama told employees of the shop that one of his first jobs was scooping ice cream at Baskin Robbins — eliciting a groan from the workers at the rival parlor. “No, the point is that my first job

When you step foot into the control room at the U.S. Border Patrol station in McAllen, Texas, the first thing that hits you is the smell. (Photo) Hovering somewhere between urine and unwashed humanity, the air is thick and hot. The sound inside the circular, glass-enclosed control room is like that of a beehive, humming with the noise of hundreds of voices mixed with buzzers and footsteps. “This is where we do the processing,” the border patrol agent tells us. The border patrol officer gestures to a series of white, cinderblock rooms that form a ring around the enclosed control

Rev. Jesse Jackson praised the “beauty” of Sen. Thad Cochran’s (R-MS) victory over “Confederate” Chris McDaniel in an interview on CNN’s “Wolf” on Thursday. In a discussion on the progress of civil rights Jackson said that one of the problems he sees in America is the fact that “the 11 southern states have gone Confederate again and of the McDaniel variety where a state like South Carolina one-fourth poverty, rejects $12 billion in Medicaid money, a state like Mississippi rejects $10 billion in Medicaid money for the poorest people in America.” His solution to this problem is to “move towards the

MINNEAPOLIS — President Barack Obama pledged the federal government´s help Thursday in recovery after massive flooding hit many parts of Minnesota this month, telling a town hall audience near the roaring Minnehaha Falls that they´ll have a strong partner when they know how severe the damage is. Obama said he was briefed by Gov. Mark Dayton on high waters that have swamped farm fields, washed out roads and flooded towns and homes in the past week. "I told the governor that we will be there as we get some clarity about the damage and what needs to be done," Obama

Ordinarily, President Obama’s days are planned out to the smallest detail. But for his two-day excursion to Minnesota this week, the president boasted that he’s got little in the way of a formal agenda, has few firm plans, and warned Secret Service that he’s feeling “super loose” and could end up doing any number of things. “I don’t know. I’m just going to make it up as I go along,” Mr. Obama said during a town-hall meeting at Minneapolis’ Minnehaha Park, one of the few planned activities during his two-day stay in the Twin Cities. “I’m like a caged bear,

Senior Obama administration officials’ closed-door briefing to senators Tuesday night revealed that the White House did not anticipate and was not prepared for the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), which has wreaked havoc in Iraq and seized many key cities in recent weeks. Top State Department and Defense Department officials joined senators Tuesday evening for a briefing on the quickly developing chaos in Iraq and future U.S. plans for a response. Sources familiar with the brief said that the administration officials repeated talking points issued over the past several days in both open and

With Iraq in danger of falling apart, new troubles on the Mexican border and other problems mounting up in Washington, President Obama on Thursday will try to the shift the narrative by reconnecting with average Americans. The president will travel to Minneapolis on Thursday and spend a day “in the shoes” of a mystery woman identified only as Rebekah. The woman, whose last name has yet to be revealed, recently wrote a letter to Mr. Obama, inspiring the president to visit her and learn more about her daily struggles. The White House is painting Thursday’s event as the first in

Hillary Clinton has a “secret deal” with her top aide Huma Abedin to keep her troublesome husband Anthony Weiner out of the spotlight, sources tell Page Six, as the former secretary of state mulls a run for president. Clinton aides have insisted Weiner “stay out of public life for two years,” and that he “avoid causing any further embarrassment to Huma or Clinton,” according to our sources. The former sexting pol has been noticeably absent at recent public events attended by Abedin, including the Gordon Parks Foundation Awards Dinner in Manhattan earlier this month. Nor has he appeared at the recent plethora

President Obama is now reaching terminal velocity, like a skydiver plunging toward earth. Except he doesn’t have a parachute. There’s a mighty splat coming soon. With his approval rating at 40 percent, down 6 points from early June, and just 29 percent of Americans convinced the country is on the “right track,” the president is doubling down on his strategy of blaming Republicans for his failures. And he’s shifting into hyperpartisan drive, traveling the country to campaign for Democrats, many of whom wish he’d just stay away. Worse, the news just keeps getting well, worse: The Veterans Affairs scandal is blazing, with

Lois Lerner, the controversial director of the tax-exempt organizations division at the Internal Revenue Service, has a long sordid history of targeting conservatives. Under the direction of Lois Lerner, the Federal Election Commission sued the Christian Coalition in the 1990s. She harassed the Christian Coalition for three election cycles. Eventually, she lost her case. At one point Lerner even asked a targeted conservative if Pat Robertson prayed over him. (Sound familiar?) In 1996, while at the FEC, Lois Lerner harassed Republican Senate candidate Al Salvi and made him this outrageous offer, “Promise me you will never run for office again, and

Republicans are in the strongest position to win back the Senate since losing it eight years ago. Over several months, the party has expanded its range of targeted seats, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has helped defeat insurgents it didn’t want representing the GOP in the midterm elections. This sober realization came to Democrats on Wednesday, as Tuesday night’s primary results showed they cannot count on Tea Party candidates upsetting more-electable incumbents. And Democrats are increasingly realizing that President Obama’s approval rating will probably remain mired at 45 percent or lower until

President Obama, tired of waiting for Congress to act on immigration reform, is currently exploring ways to address issues with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson. During an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained that the Obama administration was getting impatient with Congress. “[W]e’re not just going to sit around and wait interminably for Congress,” he explained. “We’ve been waiting a year already.

It was the elephant on the back of the elephant in the middle of the room. In a recent interview with Rusty Humphries, Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio made news by saying that the Obama administration was “incompetent” and that its current dumping of illegals in Arizona is intentional. Yet perhaps even more shocking was a 45-second segment of the interview that has received scant attention: A claim by Arpaio that he’s close to discovering who forged Barack Obama’s birth certificate. His comments were made between 9:59 and 10:44 in the interview and began as an explanation of why he

Decades of socialist/progressive indoctrination in our schools, media, and culture, plus six years of Obama, have yielded a devastating unspoken consequence. It is the loss of who we use to be as Americans. In his 1961 Inaugural Address, President John F. Kennedy said, “My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” Democrats have perverted Kennedy´s inspiring challenge. Their dispiriting goal is to have as many Americans as possible controlled by and dependent on government, even for life itself, which is at the root of ObamaCare.

Chuck Todd, NBC’s Political Director, Chief White House Correspondent, and host of The Daily Rundown on MSNBC did his best to deflect from the IRS scandal by wondering if “there are any actual real victims’ of the IRS targeting of conservative groups.” Appearing on MSNBC´s The Daily Rundown on Wednesday morning, Todd insisted that “the question at hand is whether explicitly political organizations should be filing as tax exempt social welfare groups under the tax code” and suggested that such groups weren’t deserving of such tax exempt status at all.
