Public servants acting
as public masters: Column

USA Today, by Glenn Harlan Reynolds

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 8/3/2014 6:39:29 PM

CIA responded to Obama´s acquiescence when it spied on the Senate Intelligence Committee. "Nothing could be further from the truth. I mean, we wouldn´t do that." That was CIA Director John Brennan´s answer in March when Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., charged the CIA with breaking into computers used by Senate investigators looking into CIA misconduct. (snip) The sad truth is that when you elect irresponsible people into positions of power, you get irresponsible government. President Obama oozes contempt for Congress, and for longstanding unwritten political accommodations among the branches, at every opportunity.

There was something about the way that Brennan said - "we wouldn´t do that, would we?" that induced a heavily sarcastic reaction in my ear - of course they would do it, and much worse. These high profile "public servants" appointed by Obama are nothing more than crooks, all of them.

Nominate for must read. Perhaps someone can run for President in 2016 with the vow to abolish the IRS and demand accountability and honesty from government agencies. Inspects General are always reporting problems but have done nothing to stop the ongoing corruption.

Appeals court allows Texas
abortion regulations to take effect
Houston Chronicle, by Brian M. Rosenthal    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 10/2/2014 6:40:48 PM     Post Reply
AUSTIN -- A divided federal appeals court ruled Thursday evening to allow Texas´s tough new abortion regulations to take effect, a decision that is expected to force all but seven clinics in the state to close. The ruling from a three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals at least temporarily reversed a decision by a local judge who struck down two provisions of the law as unconstitutional in August. The order signed by Judges Jennifer Walker Elrod and Jerry E. Smith found that Texas officials were likely to ultimately win their appeal in defense of

This story just keeps getting worse. Dallas Judge Clay Jenkins “requested” that the family of Thomas Eric Duncan not leave their apartment — the same one he stayed with them in — to avoid exposing anyone else to the Ebola virus. They left anyway. Judge Jenkins has now ordered them to stay home or face prosecution. The family of the Texas Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan have been ordered to stay in their home after violating official’s initial request not to leave. “There were violations of the request to not leave their premises,” Dallas judge Clay Jenkins said of the

HOUSTON, Texas -- Authorities now estimate that the Liberian Ebola patient being treated in Dallas, Texas, Thomas Eric Duncan, may have had contact with up to 100 people while infected. (snip) Chris Van Deusen with the Texas Department of State Health Services told Breitbart Texas, "Only people who have come into direct contact with the blood or other body fluids of the Ebola patient while he was sick are at any risk of infection.

(snip) "The CDC over the last several weeks to months have been really putting out the message that when people come in with symptoms that are compatible with Ebola, that it´s important to ask for a travel history, and to factor that into what your decision is.

The Ebola patient being treated in Texas told authorities he flew part of his trip on United Airlines, a spokesperson for the airline said, citing information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The airline believes the patient flew from Brussels to Washington Dulles and then from Dulles to Dallas-Fort Worth on September 20, the spokesperson said. "The director of the CDC has stated there is ´zero risk of transmission´ on any flight on which the patient flew because he was not symptomatic until several days after his trip and could not have been contagious on the dates he

A Brooklyn Technical HS? teacher who called a female student his “little sex slave” and said she could give him a “striptease” any time should not be fired, a state appeals court ruled. The panel of judges upheld the unpaid, six-month suspension of Steven Ostrin, a once-popular social studies teacher at Tech, which has since been rocked by the arrest of another teacher, accused of having sexual relationships with as many as seven female students. “The hearing officer made clear that the case turned entirely on the credibility of the witnesses and such determinations ‘are largely unreviewable,’” the judges said

Talk radio host Laura Ingraham criticized President Obama for failing to take necessary action to prevent the Ebola virus from spreading to the US on Wednesday. "I believe our leaders’ first and foremost obligation is to protect the security of our country. Why does this seem so difficult for these people to do?" she wondered. She argued that not allowing flights from Sierra Leone and Liberia “seems fairly obvious,” given similar flight bans implemented in France and the UK, “especially when the President was assuring us that this could be contained and would not spread in the United States, one

HOUSTON, Texas -- Liberian government officials have identified the patient who brought the Ebola virus to the United States as Thomas Eric Duncan. Duncan lives in Monrovia and is said to be in his mid-forties. Duncan is the first person to bring an undiagnosed case of Ebola to the United States. Duncan had direct contact with an Ebola patient in Liberia shortly before his departure to the United States according to a report on Wednesday in the New York Times by Norimitsu Onishi. Duncan helped to carry a pregnant woman who was near death from the Ebola virus back to

Parents on Wednesday were removing their children from a Dallas school where a student may have had contact with the Ebola patient diagnosed Tuesday. A letter to parents of children at L.L. Hotchkiss Elementary School, 6929 Town North Drive, says in part: “This morning, we were made aware that one of our students may have had contact with an individual who was recently diagnosed with the Ebola virus.

As a precautionary measure, the student has been advised to

Several hundred people went to their feet to applaud a speech delivered by David H. Koch. The occasion was the opening several weeks ago of the Metropolitan Museum’s new façade on Fifth Avenue. It runs four city blocks, and is complete with new fountains, paving, lighting, landscaping, and seating areas for visitors. Mr. Koch contributed the entire $65 million cost of the project, which took years to complete.

The New York Times plans to eliminate about 100 newsroom jobs, as well as a smaller number of positions from its editorial and business operations, offering buyouts and resorting to layoffs if enough people do not leave voluntarily, the newspaper announced on Wednesday. Arthur Sulzberger Jr., the newspaper’s publisher, and Mark Thompson, its chief executive, said that in addition to the job cuts, NYT Opinion, a new mobile app dedicated to opinion content, was shutting down because it was not attracting enough subscribers. The reductions, they said, were intended to safeguard the newspaper’s long-term profitability. “The job losses are necessary

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,
