White House spokesman says
investigation in Solis matter is ongoing

Los Angeles Times, by Abby Sewell

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/16/2014 10:40:58 PM

A White House spokesman said Wednesday that there is an "ongoing law enforcement investigation" related to a recording released earlier in the day by a Republican congressman who alleged it showed improper fundraising activity by former U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis -- now a Los Angeles County supervisor-elect. The comment by White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest at a press briefing was the first public confirmation by the administration of the existence of such an investigation. Earnest noted that the investigation had been reported on in January. The Times first reported the federal investigation into Solis´ activities at that time,

Like they are investigating the IRS? EPA? Fast and Furious? VA Scandal? Amount of money spent on Obamacare website? Solyndra? Bergdahl? Benghazi?

I won´t hold my breath.

Here we go again. Another ongoing investigation which they can´t (won´t talk) about because it is ongoing, and ongoing and ongoing. Thre well worn phrases:

1. I heard it on the news.
2. The computers entire system crashed.
3. No comment as it is an ongoing investigation.

The Solis investigation is going on like the FBI IRS investigation. Nothing is happening because the WH needs the magic words of "we can´t release any information of an on-going investigation".

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ohio – An Army veteran who was wounded during the Iraq War is worried a citation will result in him losing his 14 pet ducks, which he says are therapeutic. Darin Welker, of West Lafayette, was cited with a minor misdemeanor June 23 for having the ducks in his yard. He is scheduled to appear in Coshocton Municipal Court for a hearing Wednesday and could face a $150 fine. Welker, 36, is afraid he won´t be permitted to keep the ducks, which he says help him with depression and post-traumatic stress disorder and keep him more active. The

The front-page of the Washington Post on Sunday, July 20 had a damning headline accusing the Obama administration of “being warned of brewing border crisis” but only Fox and Friends Sunday covered the report. NBC’s Today, CBS Sunday Morning, and ABC’s Good Morning America, failed to cover how in a 2013 report prepared for the Obama administration “the team from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) raised alarms about the federal government’s capacity to manage a situation that was expected to grow worse.” From the Washington Post: The researchers’ observations were among the warning signs conveyed to the

Frustrated Beacon Hill Republicans opposed to Gov. Deval Patrick’s decision to offer shelter for up to 1,000 illegal immigrant children at Bay State military bases acknowledged yesterday their hands are tied even as they mull their next move. “It’s a challenging position,” said state Rep. Marc Lombardo (R-Billerica). “Several of my colleagues and I are seeing what options we have available to us ... and if there is something we can do to change course.” State Rep. Ryan C. Fattman (R-Sutton) is circulating a resolution he hopes will be heard in the House Wednesday objecting to temporarily housing illegal immigrant

Kerry Battles Fox’s Wallace: ‘You

Secretary of State John Kerry and Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace had a tense exchange Sunday morning, even before the two got to Kerry’s comments on an Israeli strike that were captured by Fox and played back to him. Wallace and Kerry first sparred over toughening sanctions on Russia following the downing of flight MH17, allegedly by Moscow-backed Ukrainian separatists. Wallace played a clip in which Obama seemed to acknowledge the ineffectualness of U.S. sanctions, a clip Kerry strongly suggested was taken out of context. But things got real heated after Wallace characterized the negotiations over Iran’s nuclear deal

FALFURRIAS, Texas—A young woman from Honduras who was left by her travel companions to die was rescued by non-paid sheriff deputies in Falfurrias. She was found walking on alongside Farm to Market Road 3066 about 13 miles southwest of the town of Falfurrias. Breitbart Texas was riding along with Donna Independent School District Acting Police Chief Daniel Walden as part of on-going coverage of the crisis of illegal immigrants dying in the fields of ranches in Brooks County surrounding the town of Falfurrias.

Hamas militants sent a donkey laden with explosives on a suicide mission in one of the most unconventional tactics yet seen in the fighting in Gaza, the Israeli army has said. Troops said they were forced to open fire on the animal - blowing it up - as it approached their position in the southern city of Rafah, near the Egyptian border. The Israeli army had received prior intelligence that militants were going to try to use animals to carry out attacks, according to a press release on the Israeli Defence Forces website. Israeli military officials say Friday night´s incident

A raging wildfire in central Washington has wiped most of a small town off the map - destroying 100 homes as it whips out of control across 260 square miles of dry forest - and fears are now growing that it will claim a second community. The Carlton Complex fire grew by nearly ten times Friday as four fires horrifically merged into one and exploded across the small village of Pateros, officials said. Residents of the town of Malott and outlying areas of nearby Brewster have been evacuated as flames rages only miles from their homes. ´We basically evacuated the

Rory McIlroy´s father Gerry is in line for a share of a £200,000 jackpot should the Northern Irishman capitalise on his six-shot lead and win the Open Championship on Sunday. McIlroy’s father placed a £100 bet 10 years ago that his son would win golf’s oldest major before the age of 26 and the 25-year-old is the overwhelming favourite to secure his third major title after a stunning finish to his third round, including two eagles in the last three holes. He has already won the US Open in 2011 and the PGA Championship in 2012, but McIlroy must claim

WASHINGTON — THE thing about him is, he just keeps going. At 67, he continues to be, as Anna Quindlen once wrote, like one of those inflatable toys with sand weighting the bottom — you knock him over and he pops back up. As Hillary stumbles and President Obama slumps, Bill Clinton keeps getting more popular. The women, the cheesy behavior, the fund-raising excesses, the self-pity, the adolescent narcissism, the impeachment, the charges of racially tinged insults against Obama in 2008, the foundation dishabille — all that percussive drama has faded to a mellow saxophone riff for many Americans.

A female general who has never piloted a military aircraft has been nominated by US President Barack Obama to head the Air Force in the Pacific. Air Force Lt. Gen. Lori J. Robinson was nominated by the president for a fourth star and to be commanding general of the military branch’s Pacific operations. If confirmed, she will be the first four-star female commander of combat forces, the Pentagon announced. But many wonder if her lack of experience in the air puts US forces on a highway to the danger zone. ‘You make operational decisions that require the understanding of what you

PARIS — Police have clashed with thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters who defied a ban in Paris on marching to protest the Israeli offensive in Gaza. Some of the protesters threw stones and other objects at riot police, who responded with rounds of tear gas.Several climbed onto a building under construction, burning an Israeli flag. Others waved a Palestinian flag from atop a street sign. French authorities banned a pro-Palestinian march after a protest last Sunday turned violent, with two synagogues attacked. Hundreds of riot police were out Sunday to enforce the ban. The protesters still managed to hang banners reading “Palestine

It is at times like these, when he is pushed kicking and screaming into the crucible, that Obama’s callowness shows. For his supporters, that jejune, jocular air has been a plus for almost six years. For the rest of us, it has served as a liability and an irritation. Yesterday, it became a wholesale embarrassment. On the perpetual-campaign trail, the pattern is familiar. Trotting up to the podium, the president fist-bumps the audience’s stragglers and smiles a toothy and humble grin at those who catch his eye. While speaking, he responds to obsequy with obsequy — “I love you too!” he

The first reason was fundraising, the second reason was to meet with Governor Rick Perry and “Faith Leaders” to discuss the border crisis.

Beck complained about a lack of coverage of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) joining his. “Nobody´s reading [The Blaze´s coverage of Ted Cruz going to border].

Now that the U.S.-Russia relationship has broken down, Moscow could throw a wrench into the teetering nuclear negotiations with Iran.The escalating tensions between Washington and Moscow, brought to fever by the MH17 airliner disaster, are finally to the point where they threaten to spoil the number one item on President Obama’s foreign policy agenda: the nuclear talks with Iran. The man doing the threatening is Russian President Vladimir Putin.Earlier this week, Putin promised to retaliate against the United States for new sanctions targeting his friends and business associates, as well as large Russian defense, energy, and financial firms.

(snip) It is as though the more dangerous the world becomes the more Obama hides in a fantasy world of avoiding the responsibilities of the presidency.

(Video) The Washington Free Beacon has put together a greatest hits compilation of the Democrats’ border security quotes. Why would the Democrats continuously insist that the border is secure? Perhaps because Republicans insist on having a secure border before discussing any type of immigration reform legislation. Democrats don’t think people will catch up to this at some point? The PR game that carried Obama – health care lies and all – to the White House is showing significant signs of incompetent wear and tear

Gay marriage laws and court rulings against sexual-orientation discrimination are all signs that it’s time for the federal government to change its blood-donor policy for gay and bisexual men, authors said in a commentary released Saturday. The lifetime ban for blood donation by men who have sex with men (MSM) “may be perpetuating outdated homophobic perceptions,” wrote Dr. Eli Y. Adashi of Brown University and scholars I.

Stefanie O´Neill, who is in regular contact with Bergdahl´s mother, said the U.S. soldier´s parents were strained both by their son´s silence since his May 31 release and because of death threats being investigated by the FBI.
