But as the Washington Post reported in July, males get paid 13 percent more than women in the Barack Obama White House: The White House has not narrowed the gap between the average pay of male and female employees since President Obama’s first year in office, according to a Washington Post analysis of new salary data. The average male White House employee currently earns about $88,600, while the average female White House employee earns about $78,400, according to White House data released Tuesday. That is a gap of 13 percent. In 2009, male employees made an average of about $82,000, compared to an average of $72,700 earned by female employees — also a 13 percent wage gap.

Source: www.counterpunch.org - Wednesday, December 10, 2014 CIA director John Brennan, having failed to block the release of the Senate intelligence committee’s report on torture and abuse, is now abetting the efforts of former CIA directors and Deputy Directors to rebut the report’s conclusions that the interrogation techniques amounted to sadism and that senior CIA officials lied to the White House, the Congress, and the Department of Justice about the effectiveness of the enhanced interrogation program. Former CIA directors George Tenet and Michael Hayden and Deputy Directors John McLaughlin and Steve Kappes, who were guilty of past deceit on sensitive issues, have threatened to make documents available to undermine the findings of the Senate committee. The senior operations officer who ran the CIA’s torture and abuse program, Jose Rodriquez, has been permitted to write a book and a long essay in the Washington Post that argue the interrogation techniques were legal and effective. Their charges a ...
US State Department network shut over hackers threat The US State Department had to shut down its unclassified computer network over the weekend after evidence emerged that it could have been hacked, the US media reported late Sunday. The State Department said in an email late Friday that the shutdown came as scheduled routine maintenance to its main unclassified network, and would impact email traffic and access to public websites. But on Sunday reports emerged that there was evidence a hacker may have breached the security in portions of the system handling non-classified emails. A senior official told the Washington Post there had been “activity of concern” but that none of the departments classified systems had been compromised. If hacked, the State Department would be the latest in a series of government agencies to face cyber security breaches — though it is not clear if there is any link between the incidents. Last week, the US Postal Service said hackers stole sensitive personal information ...

My effort to remain apolitical is strong as there is plenty of fodder that include members of all political parties. For example, as my parents raised me and we turned around and raised our son, there was always Rule Number 1 - Do not lie. Your reputation and credibility with others depend on truth. This past week I sat without comment on the veracity and actions of Jonathan Gruber. You know, the Professor of Economics at M.I.T. who was touted as an expert on health insurance and taxation. So much that he was called to be a volunteer consultant to the President and testified before the Senate as an expert in healthcare in favor of the Affordable Care Act. He even wrote an Op-Ed page for the New York Times on July 12, 2014. Again on December 28, 2009 in the Washington Post. Even freerepublic.com ran an article on him and his findings.

Kennedy: JFK used marijuana to deal with severe back pain, according to a few written accounts, including “John F. Kennedy: A Biography”, which described this White House scene: “On the evening of July 16, 1962, according to [Washington Post executive] Jim Truitt, Kennedy and Mary Meyer smoked marijuana together. … The president smoked three of the six joints Mary brought to him. At first he felt no effects. Then he closed his eyes and refused a fourth joint. ‘Suppose the Russians did something now,’ he said.”

Questions arise after experts say Foley ISIS beheading video likely "staged" CIA Admitted to staging fake Jihadist videos in 2010 by Mikael Thalen | Infowars.com | September 3, 2014 A 2010 Washington Post article authored by former Army Intelligence Officer Jeff Stein features a detailed account of how the CIA admittedly filmed a fake Bin Laden video during the run up to the 2003 Iraq War. The article, which includes comments from multiple sources within the CIA’s Iraq Operations Group, explains how the agency had planned to “flood Iraq with the videos” depicting several controversial scenarios. “The agency actually did make a video purporting to show Osama bin Laden and his cronies sitting around a campfire swigging bottles of liquor and savoring their conquests with boys, one of the former CIA officers recalled, chuckling at the memory,” the article states. “The actors were drawn from ‘some of us darker-skinned employees.’” Other CIA officials admitted to planning several fake videos f ...

Ignoring Military Leadership, Obama’s “Best National Security Interests” Are His “Best Personal Political Interests” Posted on 13 September, 2014 by Rick Wells 106 lloyd austin general recommendations 610 One of Obama’s top military advisers, General Lloyd Austin, who is the commander of U.S. Central Command, included as part of his recommendations for a strategy to combat ISIS the positioning of “a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting with the militants.” Those recommendations were rejected, according to reports in Real Clear Defense and the Washington Post, as well as the Washington Free Beacon. Obama opted instead to accept the tradeoff of reduced accuracy and effectiveness of some airstrikes and other actions in exchange for avoiding the exposure of having an expanded, combat presence on the ground in Iraq and Syria. The American forces will be operating primarily from within military bases, not i ...
Obama and the Arab Spring - White House will continue Arab Spring In Islamic State - Bill Wilson The occupant of the Oval Office will announce on the eve of the 9/11 anniversary limited military action against the Islamic State. The Washington Post reports that the Administration has been working on building political support for its newly crafted strategy in dealing with the Islamic State. An indicator of the strategy comes after the "president" met with congressional leaders in a statement released by the office of House Speaker John Boehner, saying, "The Speaker stated he would support the President if he chose to deploy the military to help train and play an advisory role for the Iraqi Security Forces and assist with lethal targeting of ISIL leadership." It will sound a lot like Libya and Arab Spring. Americans should remember Libya, where the "president" ignored Congress, supplied Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood with American tax dollars, weapons, advisors and the full complement of military air ...

. White House Stormed by Anti-Israel Protesters Thousands of people rally in front of the White House to protest against the United States’ unwavering support for Israel as the regime presses on with its bloody military campaign in the Gaza Strip. The demonstration drew more than 30,000 protesters from across the country to the streets around the White House and downtown Washington, making it the largest anti-Israel rally since the Zionist regime began its onslaught against Gaza on July 8, according to the website of the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition, one of the chief organizers of the event. “It’s an exceptionally large number of protesters,” Araz Alali, a DC police spokesman, was quoted by the Washington Post as saying. “Free, free Palestine, killing children is a crime,” the crowd chanted, holding Palestinian flags, and signs which read, “Occupation is a crime — Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine”, “Stop Israeli terrorism” and “No justice, no peace.’’ The demonstration was organized online b ...

USING THE IMMIGRATION CRISIS TO BUILD MORE FEMA CAMPS... President Obama has officially asked for $3.7 billion in emergency funding to handle the tens of thousands of Central American children who've showed up unaccompanied at the U.S.-Mexico border seeking entry and support. According to the Washington Post, "Administration officials said the request is part of a comprehensive strategy aimed at building more detention centers, adding immigration judges, and beefing up Border Patrols and air surveillance." Critics have blasted the president's request for focusing little on controlling the border and, instead, spending the bulk of the money on new Homeland Security facilities, as well as administration money to the Dept. of Human Health Services and other agencies to care for the refugee minors. While the White House insists these children will likely not be allowed to stay, there is little reason to think they will be sent home anytime soon -- and the detention centers would suggest long-term plans to hou ...
From: Gary L. Bauer Border Security Is National Security President Obama will honor 10 "Dreamers" at the White House today. These are individuals who came into the country illegally, but qualified for Obama's 2012 amnesty for children. Obama will reportedly hail these individuals as "champions of change," all of whom will undoubtedly have inspiring stories. There's been a lot of change on our southern border too. The "humanitarian crisis" created by Obama's amnesty pronouncement is worsening. The Los Angeles Times describes the surge of illegal immigration in the Rio Grande Valley as "seemingly endless," noting that illegal immigrants "are now arriving at a rate of more than 35,000 a month." While the Obama White House dismisses complaints that its open borders policy is to blame, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) seems to agree with the critics. She recently dispatched members of her staff to a Border Patrol station in Arizona. Senator Feinstein told the Washington Post: "After engaging with the children a ...
So much for being dead broke.At long last, what the media wouldn't tell you about...BILL AND HILLARY'S 11TH-HOUR CRIME SPREE Final Days by Olson, Barbara "Disgraceful." That was former president Jimmy Carter's word for the final days of the Clinton administration. But as the late Barbara Olson shows in this riveting book, it was worse than disgraceful; it was well-nigh criminal. Here's the whole shocking story of a manic Clinton White House consumed with self-enrichment, gifts, pardons, federal land grabs, and an orgy of spending and regulating. If the Clinton administration was the most corrupt in American history, here was its most obscenely corrupt moment. As even Paul Goldman of the Democratic National Committee said, "Mr. Clinton didn't just take the White House china; he took its soul and flushed it down the toilet." Getting the truth about Bill and Hillary Clinton isn't easy. As even Bob Woodward of the Washington Post lamented, "If we had Clinton here on sodium pentathol [truth serum] - we might n ...

"White House staff tried to 'un-ring the bell' after revealing CIA chief's identity" • White House press office unaware it had circulated name • Washington Post journalist sounded alert after filing report The Guardian, Monday 26 May 2014 13.24 EDT The White House blew the cover of the top CIA agent in Afghanistan on Sunday, when the person’s name was included on a list given to reporters during a visit to the country by President Barack Obama. The name was then emailed by the White House press office to a distribution list of more than 6,000 recipients, mostly members of the US media. The agent in question, listed as chief of station, would be a top manager of CIA activity in Afghanistan, i ...
Raiole latest in a long list of CIA station chiefs revealed to the media… Identities of CIA station chiefs are no big secret… Much ado is being made of the White House mistakenly releasing the name of the CIA station chief in Kabul to the White House press pool reporters who re-sent the list to some 6000 reporters. The email was sent during President Obama's surprise visit to Bagram airbase in Afghanistan… The email sent by The Washington Post's White House reporter Scott Wilson was later amended with the name of station Mike Raiole deleted. Critics of the Obama Administration are attempting to make political hay out of the disclosure of Raiole's name. There was also a rather pathetic attempt by the corporate media, including the Washington Post, Reuters, and the cable news networks, to display a form of bizarre patriotism by congratulating themselves on withholding Raiole's name from publication or broadcasting… Some administration critics suggested that the revelation of Raiole's name was akin t ...
*** - The White House mistakenly outed the CIA's top official in Afghanistan after President Obama's slipped into Afghanistan over the weekend on a surprise trip to visit U.S. troops in the region. The White House passed along to the press the name of the CIA's station chief in Kabul on a list of senior officials attending a military briefing for President Obama during the trip. Reporters who accompany the president on his travels routinely must serve “pool duty” – the process of chronicling the president's movements and details of his daily interactions and remarks to write up and pass along to thousands of journalists, including foreign media. White House aides gave the journalist assigned to pool duty Sunday the list that inadvertently included the station chief's name. It's common for the White House to provide such list to reporters on pool duty but the names of intelligence officials usually are omitted. After the pool reporter, the Washington Post's Scott Wilson, emailed his report that inclu ...

White House vows that CIA will not use vaccine programs for covert ops by Reuters WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House promised on Monday that the CIA will not use immunization programs for its operations following a complaint that the spy agency used such a campaign in its hunt for Osama bin Laden. The deans of 12 public health schools had complained about a reported vaccination program conducted by a Pakistani doctor, who used a hepatitis immunization survey in the Pakistani city where bin Laden was later killed in a secret U.S. mission. The CIA orchestrated the survey to try to obtain fluid containing DNA from relatives living near the bin Laden residence, the Washington Post reported. It said the effort failed and the surgeon, Shakil Afridi, was sentenced to 23 years in prison. Caitlin Hayden, spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council, said Obama Homeland Security adviser Lisa Monaco had assured the deans in a letter that CIA policy as of August 2013 makes clear “the CIA will mak ...

US flies aircraft over Nigeria, mulls sending drones in search for abducted girls: Speaking to reporters on Monday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said roughly 27 officials – including some from the State Department, the Pentagon, and FBI – are already in Nigeria, ready to assist the government’s search. “The scope of that assistance has been outlined, and it includes military and law enforcement assistance, advisory assistance, as well as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance support,” Carney said. Additionally, the Washington Post reported that an unnamed senior Pentagon official said the White House is also considering whether or not to deploy drones in the search. If the US chooses to do so, it would reroute some of the drones currently being used to hunt Lord’s Resistance Army warlord Joseph Kony. Meanwhile, a senior administration official told the Post the US has already “shared commercial satellite imagery with the Nigerians.” News of the development comes shortly a ...
excerpted from the editors of the National Review: The Washington Post, which once had the fine discretion to overlook the embarrassing personal defects of Democrats within its good graces, recently awarded Senator Harry Reid the dreaded “three Pinocchios” from its fact-checkers, who noted that the senator’s latest claims about the proprietors of Koch Industries, about whom Senator Reid obsesses were largely disconnected from reality. Senator Reid, citing a recent White House report, claimed that Koch Industries was one of the main causes of global warming and that it was responsible for more greenhouse-gas emissions than Dow Chemical, Exxon, and General Electric combined. The report said no such thing and identified Exxon as a much, much larger emitter than Koch, which is no surprise, given that Koch is not in the oil-drilling business but in the refining and derivatives business. General Electric does not appear in the report at all. By the fact-checkers’ reckoning, Koch Industries is, under the ...

Man who trailed White House motorcade set for court..Washington Post dwells a bit on his atheism:
The liberal media had no problem doing their job when a Republican president was involved in a cover up. Obamas cover up is right in front of their noses an still they pretend they can't see it. THE INVESTIGATIONS Initial investigations of Watergate were heavily influenced by the media, particularly the work of two reporters from the Washington Post, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, along with their mysterious informant, Deep Throat. Political investigations began in February 1973 when the Senate established a Committee to investigate the Watergate Scandal. The public hearings of the Committee were sensational, including the evidence of John Dean, Nixon’s former White House Counsel. The Committee also uncovered the existence of the secret White House tape recordings, sparking a major political and legal battle between the Congress and the President. In 1974, the House of Representatives authorized the Judiciary Committee to consider impeachment proceedings against Nixon. The work of this Committee was . ...

¤MGN-AFRICA» Will Chelsea Clinton run for the White House one day?: Media speculation went into overdrive last week over the former first daughter's pregnancy news and her political intentions. Her father says she'd make a great president. Does Clinton, who says she had to defend her opinions at the dinner table from the age of four, have what it takes? Last week, publications across the world from the Daily Mail to the Washington Post raced first to cover Chelsea Clinton's declaration to US business magazine Fast Company that she would, in certain circumstances, consider running for public office, and then her announcement that she and her husband Marc Mazvinsky are expecting their first child. The former is not really news; she has said this many times before, to many interviewers, yet each time she articulates her openness to run always using exactly the same carefully prepared language press reaction is huge, particularly in the US, where obsessional interest in all things Clinton mirrors coverage o ...

In case you hadn't heard, yesterday when signing the Fair Pay Act, President Obama took a gratuitous grab for a laugh at the expense of dry cleaners by accusing us of gender biased pricing. In seguing from a discussion about gender neutral pricing under the Affordable Health Care Act, he said that 'next we'll talk about dry cleaners. I still can't understand why it costs Michelle more to clean her blouse than it does me." NCA was alerted to the remark by member Jack Musler, and immediately located the video on YouTube (on a link that was later classified as 'private'.) We contacted the White House, wrote a response and copied the leaders in the House and Senate. After seeing the blog post in the Washington Post, we then proceeded to release our response to other national media. Response from NCA below:
Joseph Kony, the elusive leader of the Lord's Resistance Army, believes himself to be the spokesman of God. (AP)AP President Obama is committing more military resources, including aircraft and special operations forces, to the hunt for notorious African warlord Joseph Kony. Early Monday, the White House confirmed a Washington Post report that the U.S. was sending "associated support personnel," and a "limited number" of CV-22 Osprey aircraft to assist local forces in their long-running battle against Kony's Lord's Resistance Army, or LRA. Obama sent about 100 U.S. troops to help the African forces in 2011,statement from White House. Pals would this work out this this time round?
Executive Orders In his State of the Union address in February 2013, President Obama said this: “I urge this Congress to pursue a bipartisan, market-based solution to climate change .… "But if Congress won’t act soon to protect future generations," I WILL. I will direct my Cabinet to come up with EXECUTIVE ACTIONS we can take, now and in the future .…” The president is taking these types of actions with greater and greater frequency. Here is what the "Washington Post" wrote just a couple of days before the president’s address: “President Obama is considering a series of new executive actions aimed at working around a recalcitrant Congress, including policies that could allow struggling homeowners to refinance their mortgages, provide new protections for *** and *** make buildings more energy-efficient and toughen regulations for coal-fired power plants, according to people outside the White House involved in discussions on the issues. … “The moves underscore Obama’s "increasingl ...
From: Gary L. Bauer Borrowed from an email::: Our "Prankster" President. "Comrade Obama, what should those who have neither accounts nor property abroad do? Have you not thought about it?" As we noted yesterday, the Obama Administration responded to the Crimean secession vote by imposing sanctions, which the White House was spinning as the toughest sanctions against Russia since the Cold War. That's not exactly how the Russians see it. The sanctions are virtually meaningless and have no economic impact whatsoever. In fact, Russia's Stock Market went up after they were announced. That's because they targeted only a few individuals, rather than banks or businesses. Even the liberal Washington Post labeled them a "slap on the wrist." Predictably, this incredibly weak response did nothing to deter Vladimir Putin. Today Putin delivered a bellicose address to a joint session of the Russian parliament and signed the treaty annexing Crimea while the Russian national anthem blared in the background. Putin is also ...

set the record straight: Eight months into President George W. Bush's second term, the Washington Post wrote that Bush's frequent trips to his Texas ranch symbolized "a lackadaisical approach to the world's most important day job" and gleefully noted that Bush was intent on setting the record for being on "vacation"--or away from Washington, D.C.--for the most number of days of any president. But when President Barack Obama vacations in Hawaii, sets up a fantasy golf vacation for himself with Butch Harmon and Tiger Woods, averages more than a vacation a month in 2013 while purporting to be a man of the people and demanding the rich pay their fair share, and playing sequester politics by shutting down White House tours, the mainstream media is silent. And while Bush spent more time outside of Washington than Obama, it is also worth nothing that nearly all of Bush's vacations were trips back to his Texas ranch or family vacation homes in Maine. The Post, in 2005, conceded that Bush's vacations--unlike Obama ...
Washington Post. A GOP plan to repair Obamacare, not repeal it BY BYRON YORK | FEBRUARY 10, 2014 AT 6:45 PM TOPICS: OBAMACARE Republican Party HEALTH CARE At last Wednesday's Senate Republican retreat at the Library of Congress, Sen. Ron Johnson presented an extensive PowerPoint proposal to "repair the damage" of Obamacare. Johnson had once hoped to repeal the law but conceded that now, after its implementation, "you don't just wave a wand and repeal it and it goes away."Â (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, file) . There's no doubt the vast majority of Republicans in Congress would repeal Obamacare if they could. Most GOP "alternative" bills begin with a clause to repeal the Affordable Care Act before proceeding to outline new policies to put in its place. Of course, GOP lawmakers don't have any hope of actually repealing the law as long as Barack Obama, and his veto pen, are in the White House. Now some Republicans are looking at what might be done to undo as much as possible of the Democrats' National Health ...
CALAMITY'S LETTER PUBLISHED IN THE WASHINGTON POST IN RESPONSE TO THEIR EDITORIAL... (SEE MY 'Karl Rove' AND DMITRI KARAMAZOV COMMENTS). No E-Mail 'Mystery' Sunday, April 22, 2007 The April 14 editorial "White House E-Mail Mystery" said that White House employees received "sloppy guidance" regarding when to use e-mail accounts provided by the White House and accounts provided by the Republican National Committee. Sloppy guidance? If an employee cannot read and comprehend an employee handbook, maybe that person should not be working in the White House. The editorial seemed to imply that allegedly intelligent people could be acutely aware of the Hatch Act but fail to recognize security issues and what the Presidential Records Act requires. It was not "sloppy guidance." It was Republican priorities -- party before country. CHERYL DOUGLASS Burlington, Mass.

The 9/11 Atrocity and Pearl Harbor Posted by Patrick Foy on November 09, 2007 There is a Washington insider named Michael Gerson who wrote speeches for the Cheney White House and who supposedly was Bush Jr’s favorite speechwriter. He now writes for Newsweek and the Washington Post. Gerson was a guest on Chris Matthews’ “Hardball” program on CNBC last Friday evening, November 2nd. Since leaving his desk at the White House, Gerson has written a book entitled Heroic Conservatism: Why Republicans Need to Embrace America’s Ideals. Gerson apparently believes that Cheney and Bush Jr. are heroic conservatives, whom we should emulate. At this point in time, such an outlook is not only ridiculous but embarrassing. Still, everybody is entitled to his or her own opinion. My view, for what it may be worth, is that Cheney and Bush Jr. are neither heroic nor conservative, and should not be emulated by anybody, certainly not by Republicans. Cheney, Bush Jr. and Karl Rove have destroyed the good name of the Repu ...
On this day in 1970, A stretch limousine carrying Elvis Presley pulled up outside the White House in Washington, D.C. The driver handed over a letter from Elvis addressed to President Nixon requesting a meeting to discuss how the King of Rock and Roll could help Nixon fight drugs. The President agreed to give Presley a Narcotics Bureau badge - but only after learning that the chief of the narcotics bureau had turned down the same request earlier that day and told Presley the only person who could overrule his decision was the President. At Elvis' request, the meeting remained secret for more than a year, until the Washington Post broke the story on January 27th, 1972.
This week Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh challenged the Obama Administration's official narrative on the September chemical weapons attack near Damascus, with a report alleging the White House "cherry-picked" intelligence to justify a military strike against Bashar al-Assad's government. Both the New Yorker and the Washington Post rejected Hersh's reported, suggesting that the mainstream media still hasn't learned from the mistakes it made 10 years ago when faulty intelligence was used to go to war in Iraq.
In reversal, Obama says he lived with uncle By Maria Sacchetti | GLOBE STAFF DECEMBER 05, 2013 President Obama acknowledged on Thursday that he lived with his Kenyan uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while preparing to attend Harvard Law School, contradicting a statement more than a year ago that the White House had no record of the two ever meeting. Their relationship came into question on Tuesday at the deportation hearing of his uncle, Onyango Obama, in Boston immigration court. His uncle had lived in the United States illegally since the 1970s and revealed in testimony for the first time that his famous nephew had stayed at his Cambridge apartment for about three weeks. At the time, Onyango Obama was here illegally and fighting deportation. On Thursday, a White House official said the press office had not fully researched the relationship between the president and his uncle before telling the Globe that they had no record of the two meeting. This time, the press office asked the president directl ...
Obama's picture perfect propaganda!!! It might seem like another day in Tea Party Land when a conservative columnist accuses the Obama White House “airbrushing history” like the “Stalin era” Soviet Union. But the columnist isn’t a conservative. It’s Dana Milbank of the liberal Washington Post, complaining about what’s happened to White House news photographers. He’s not alone. A New York Times photographer has publicly compared Team Obama to the Soviets’ Tass news agency. What is going on? As the wheels come off the Barack Obama Hope and Change Bus, the White House is now restricting access to the very media that have done little but throw roses at his feet over the last five years. Many presidential “photo opportunities” now allow only an official White House photographer, causing the media to stir with “tensions” and write letters of protest. "Journalists are routinely being denied the right to photograph or videotape the President while he is performing his official duties," t ...
Promises, promises. Six months after the White House said it would push to move the CIA’s controversial drone operations to the Defense Department, the Washington Post reports that the CIA is still running majority of the operations, and according to officials, "the White House vision remains a distant goal." The news comes after high-profile strikes in Yemen and Pakistan last week, and highlights the difficulties in getting the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command to take over from the CIA.

One of the most celebrated investigative journalists - Bob Woodward of the Washington Post joins Larry King at the historic Hay-Adams hotel overlooking the White House.
Ed Rogers in the Washington Post: "With Democrats now stuck in a downward spiral, lying about the Obamacare lies, Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) offered Team Obama a way out at Wednesday’s Senate Finance Committee hearing. He asked Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, “Why not shut it [the Obamacare Web site] down and do it right?” But inexplicably, rather than trying to reboot, the White House continues to stare straight at the camera and stand in front of audiences everywhere and tell one whopper after another, even though everyone knows officials aren’t telling the truth. This is bewildering, insulting and corrosive, all at the same time. And everyone gets that, except for a few isolated souls in the West Wing."
National Journal: "Managing political fallout, rather than honesty and competence, seems to be the White House's priority. A lot has been written about Obama promising that Americans could retain their health insurance if they like it, as well as the president's attempt to reinvent history about his broken pledge. "Caught red-handed, the White House shifted to a new tactic: blaming insurance companies." The Washington Post responded "First of all, the administration wrote the rules that set the conditions under which plans lose their grandfather status. The administration's effort to pin the blame on insurance companies is a classic case of misdirection." National Journal's Ron Fournier says "Democratic lawmakers know the stakes. They know what happens to their party--in 2014 and beyond--if Obama keeps squandering his credibility. They know what happens to them--in their reelection campaigns--if the White House doesn't shift from spinning to fixing. "For supporters of health care reform (disclosure: I'm o ...
...On Wednesday, the Pulitzer-winning PolitiFact website gave Obama its highest ranking for dishonesty. ...On Thursday, The Washington Post’s Fact Checker gave Obama and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney three out of four “Pinocchios” for blaming the insurance companies, rather than the new health care law, for the growing number of cancellation letters.
This Day In History Barack Obama elected as America's first black president On this day in 2008, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois defeats Senator John McCain of Arizona to become the 44th U.S. president, and the first African American elected to the White House. The 47-year-old Democrat garnered 365 electoral votes and nearly 53 percent of the popular vote, while his 72-year-old Republican challenger captured 173 electoral votes and more than 45 percent of the popular vote. Obama's vice-presidential running mate was Senator Joe Biden of Delaware, while McCain's running mate was Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska, the first female Republican ever nominated for the vice presidency. Obama, who was born in 1961 in Hawaii to a white woman from Kansas and a black man from Kenya, graduated from Harvard Law School and was a law professor at the University of Chicago before launching his political career in 1996, when he was elected to the Illinois State Senate. He was re-elected to that post in 1998 and 2000. In Marc ...
President Obama will not take the blame for anything his administration does. Of course, he’s the first to take credit even when there’s no credit to take. How many times have we heard President Obama tell the American people that he was unaware of what’s been going on? He didn’t know about Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal, spying on journalists, Benghazi, NSA spying on foreign leaders, or that people could lose their insurance once the so-called Affordable Care Act kicked in. Even the liberal media are beginning to grow anxious that their political messiah is turning out to be a fraud. Here’s an example from Chris Cillizza who writes for the liberal Washington Post: “In response to reports that the National Security Agency had spied on world leaders — including Germany’s Angela Merkel – the response from the White House was a now-familiar one: President Obama didn’t know about it. “NSA chief Keith Alexander ‘did not discuss with President Obama in 2010 an alleged foreign intellig ...
Jack was interviewed about his book in the Huffington Post, "JFK Transformed: From the Senate to the White House." the cover of Sunday’s Washington Post Opinion section features an illustration of JFK surrounded by some of the many new books about him, but only 10 titles are visible – including JFK in the Senate! The book is also listed in the accompanying article, “A Roundup of New Books on John F. Kennedy.” It's been a good day!
To the most important point, the crux of Cruz: The only person who loves Ted Cruz more than Ted Cruz is Barack Obama. It is the White House and Democrats, not Republicans, who have advanced the idea that Cruz is the face of the GOP. Remember when the White House insisted that Rush Limbaugh was the leader of the GOP? These narratives are useful to Democrats because they loonify the GOP, driving voters away from their fiery rhetoric just as intense heat repels any sensible mammal. Cruz and Co. were more useful than Democrats could have hoped for as Obamacare limped out of the starting gate. One can bet that the greater the “glitches,” the bigger the megaphone for Cruz, the useful genius. The only hope for Republicans going forward is that Cruz resists the allure of his own voice. ...Kathleen Parker, Washington Post
WAKE UP AMERICA!!! (This is part of an article I read: Liberals talking about the O b a ma administration.) "NYT reporter: Obama admin “most closed, control-freak administration I’ve ever covered” POSTED AT 1:01 PM ON OCTOBER 5, 2013 BY ED MORRISSEY Remember when the media rushed to talk about transparency in the Barack Obama “Hope and Change” era? Good times, good times. Leonard Downie, who once worked as the executive editor of the Washington Post and wrote a novel about Washington corruption and the Iraq War, finds a bigger and non-fictional problem in the successor to George W.

News: CONGRESSMAN, GOVERNMENT PEOPLE, STOP ACTING LIKE BABIES THAT ARE WEARING PEE PEE DIPPERS.. During the last government shutdown, some of us were 12 years old and wearing out our VHS tape of “Tommy Boy,” that comic masterpiece about responsibility, duty and friendship. The disapproving public might think the 113th United States Congress is full of both Tommy Callahans (entitled oafs) and Richard Haydens (sniveling bean counters), but this is no time to discuss how “Tommy Boy” is an allegory for our legislature. Instead, after a week of thinking shutdown thoughts, the heart of the matter is how culture changes faster than politics, and how the time between this shutdown and the last shutdown is somehow both an eon (when measured in how we live) and a blip (when measured in how we govern). Picture it! Mid-November 1995. Cold and wet in Washington. President Bill Clinton said that Republicans were holding the country hostage; Republicans excoriated Clinton for playing golf.

Shooting Terrorgate Cover-Up? Thursday, October 3, 2013 14:00 (Before It's News) David Chase Taylor October 3, 2013 Truther.org SWITZERLAND, Zürich — In what appears to be a desperate attempt to muddy the waters in respect to the ever-growing Terrorgate Scandal, on Thursday, October 3, 2013, it was reported that at least a dozen gunshots were fired outside the United States Capitol Building, resulting in a death of one person and a lockdown of Washington, D.C. According to initial reports, gunfire occurred just outside the Capitol Building followed by a car chase that ended near the Capitol. The shots reportedly came from a suspect in a black two-door sedan which allegedly raced off right after attempting to ram the gate at the White House. Reuters reported that the suspect was shot and killed by Capitol Police which then predictably stated that the shooting was an “isolated incident”. The “Terrorgate Memo” has enough direct and circumstantial evidence to bring down the entire Obama administrat ...
THIS JUST IN...The Connecticut mother who was gunned down by police yesterday after ramming a White House barrier with her young daughter in the car thought President Obama was stalking her, law sources said today. Investigators have found indications that Miriam Carey suffered delusions due to a history of mental illness, NBC Connecticut reports. Last night her mother revealed the 34-year-old has suffered from postpartum depression since giving birth to her daughter Erica last year. These revelations are the first clues as to what led a seemingly happy dental hygienist to snap and drive her Infiniti luxury sedan 270 miles from her home in suburban Stamford to Washington, DC - where her rampage put the nation's capital on lock-down Thursday. Scroll down for video Authorities said the single-mother had a 'history of mental illness' but did not elaborate. Carey's 18-month-old daughter Erica - who was in the back seat - was not injured, despite the Secret Service and U.S. Capitol police firing up to 15 shots ...
Strange Goings-On at the White House - - - A tight-knit inner circle plays all politics, all the time, while Obama remains disengaged. (by John Fund) The recent spate of Washington scandals has some liberals finally confessing in public what many of them have said privately for a long time. The Obama Administration is arrogant, insular, prone to intimidation of adversaries, and slovenly when it comes to seeing that rules are followed. Indeed, the Obama White House is a strange place, and it’s good that its operational model is now likely to be finally dissected by the media. Joe Klein of Time Magazine laments Obama’s “unwillingness to concentrate.” Dana Milbank of the Washington Post tars him as a President Passerby who “seems to want no control over the actions of his administration.” Milbank warns that “he’s creating a power vacuum in which lower officials behave as though anything goes.” Comedian Jon Stewart says Obama’s government lacks real “managerial competence” and that the ...
Elections are coming up. It’s time for American Indian people to remember the living conditions that never seem to change regardless of which party is in power. American Indian issues are non-partisan. These living conditions will become worse as the issues of deficit reductions fall on most Indian reservations and other programs serving urban Indian people. These very programs that American Indian people have relied on to help improve the poverty and hunger in many American Indian communities are in danger as the political structure continues to fight the election campaign. It is very hard to discuss a “fiscal cliff” in 2013-2014 when most American Indians know and will argue that we have faced that “cliff” for over two hundred years. A recent article on the Washington Post stated: “Any agreement is likely to result in less than the $1.6 trillion in new taxes over the next decade that Obama requested in his initial offer to House Republicans, and White House aides are signaling to allies that ...
Speaking of Chicago's 1893 World's Columbian Exposition... REMEMBERING JOSEPH DOUGLASS! Today, July 3rd, we celebrate the life and times of Joseph Douglass (July 3, 1871 – December 1935); a groundbreaking African American concert violinist and grandson of abolitionist Frederick Douglass. Douglass received his first big break as a concert violinist at the age of 22 when he performed at the World's Columbian Exposition, also known as the Chicago World's Fair. On August 25, 1893 performers joined together to celebrate Colored American Day (which Frederick Douglass helped plan). Included in the celebrations were readings of Paul Lawrence Dunbar's poetry, performances by Sidney Woodward and Deseria Plato. Joseph Douglass also performed at Colored American Day, garnering him a large audience for his talents. According to his obituary in the Washington Post from December 8, 1935, “His appearances at the White House were regularly scheduled during administrations of Presidents McKinley, Roosevelt, and Taft, a ...

Why "Veil" by Bob Woodward is a load of crap, especially the section about Lebanon in the 80s... Why didn't David Gregory ever grill Bob Woodward for leaking CIA secrets? The Watergate Scandal has now come full circle. Much lauded Washington Post “sleuth” reporter Bob Woodward, who made his career on the political downfall of the Nixon administration over Watergate has now landed smack in the middle of another presidential scandal. However, this time Woodward is not reporting on the scandal – he is one of the key subjects involved in it. It turns out that Woodward was one of the reporters involved in the CIA “Leakgate” scandal involving a criminal conspiracy by the Bush White House to expose the covert CIA status of the wife of a noted administration war critic, Ambassador Joseph Wilson. Woodward was called before Justice Department special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald to answer questions about his being told by a senior White House official in June 2003 about the covert CIA identity of Wilson ...
Poor Barack, its tough at the top. Obama hit by Snowden setbacks with China, Russia Snowden fled to Hong Kong after seizing highly classified documents disclosing U.S. surveillance programs that collect vast amounts of U.S. phone and Internet records. He shared the information with The Guardian and Washington Post newspapers. Former Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif., said it wasn't clear that Obama's "charm offensive" with Xi and Putin would matter much on this issue. The U.S. has "very little leverage," she said, given the broad array of issues on which the Obama Administration needs Chinese and Russian cooperation. White House spokesman Jay Carney, in unusually harsh language, said China had "unquestionably" damaged its relationship with Washington. While the U.S. does not have an extradition treaty with Russia, the White House publicly prodded the Kremlin to send Snowden back to the U.S., while officials privately negotiated with their Russian counterparts. "We are expecting the Russians to examine the option ...
Top Republican: Obama free speech 'bully' - Washington Post Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said in a speech Friday that the White House is engaged in a vast effort to silence and harass its critics. "Our ability to freely engage in civic life and to organize in defense of our beliefs is still under coordinated assault from groups on the left that don't like the idea of anyone criticizing their aims, and from a White House that appears determined to shut up anybody who challenges it," McConnell said at the American Enterprise Institute, according to a transcript. McConnell said the IRS's targeting of conservative groups is symptomatic of a larger problem in the administration. (Read more) - Father, we thank You for the boldness of Senate Minority Leader McConnell, to speak out on the inequity of treatment against the conservatives in this nation.

Look what I found in a memory hole: White House lied about threat to Air Force One By Jerry White 28 September 2001 The White House has been caught in a lie about the alleged terrorist threat against Air Force One which it had cited as the reason for President Bush’s absence from Washington for most of September 11. According to reports by CBS News and the Washington Post, White House officials have stated that the Secret Service never received a phone call warning of a direct threat to the president’s airplane. The government’s reversal has gone largely unreported in the media. In the immediate aftermath of the terror attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Bush’s movements became a matter of controversy within political and media circles. As the destruction in New York and Washington unfolded and unconfirmed reports emerged of a car bomb at the State Department and the danger of further hijackings, Bush, who began the day in Florida, was whisked from one military installation to anot ...

June 17 On this day in 1972, police arrested five burglars for breaking into the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate building in Washington, D.C., a crime that led to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon. The burglars and their bosses, G. Gordon Liddy and E. Howard Hunt, weren't after conventional loot. Their orders were to spy on the Democrats. CIA personnel had links to the burglary, but the top dogs turned out to be Richard Nixon and his top advisors. Like rats off a sinking ship, guilty aides began turning on their bosses. They testified one after another before Congress. They blabbed to the press, notably Washington Post reporters Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward, and to prosecutors. President Nixon also contributed to his own undoing. He had secretly taped his White House conversations. Even with suspicious gaps in them, the tapes tied him to a cover-up of the crime. On Aug. 9, 1974, President Nixon resigned. A collage of officials involved in the Watergate Scandal. A ...
I think if Obama wants to visit his home, he should ask his friend Oprah to pay for it!!! Report: Obama's Africa trip could cost $60M-$100M Lynne Sladky, AP President Obama on Air Force One by David Jackson, USATODAY Presidential trips are expensive, and President Obama's journey to Africa this month will in no way be an exception. The Washington Post estimates that Obama's Africa trip could cost $60 million to $100 million, citing a person familiar with the details who cited previous presidential missions to Africa. A more precise estimate is impossible because details about the president's security are classified. "The infrastructure that accompanies the president's travels is beyond our control," Ben Rhodes, Obama's deputy national security adviser for strategic communication, told the Post. "The security requirements are not White House-driven, they are Secret Service-driven." The Post reported: "Hundreds of U.S. Secret Service agents will be dispatched to secure facilities in Senegal, South Africa a ...
"Nobody is listening to your telephone calls. That's not what this program is about," Obama told reporters during a visit to California's Silicon Valley. He emphasized that the secret surveillance programs were supervised by federal judges and authorized by Congress, which had been briefed on the details. Obama's comments came after reports this week in Britain's Guardian newspaper and the Washington Post revealed that the National Security Agency and the FBI had secretly conducted surveillance of Americans' telephone and internet communications activities far beyond what had been made public. The reports triggered a broad debate about privacy rights and the proper limits of government surveillance in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States. They also sent White House officials and congressional leaders scrambling to explain why the government needs to collect information on trillions of phone calls and internet communications.

US spy leaker Edward Snowden 'missing' in Hong Kong 2 hours ago Ed Snowden explains why he became a whistleblower (Video courtesy of The Guardian, Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras) An ex-CIA employee who leaked details of US top-secret phone and internet surveillance has disappeared from his hotel in Hong Kong. Edward Snowden, 29, checked out from his hotel on Monday. His whereabouts are unknown, but he is believed to be still in Hong Kong. Earlier, he said he had an "obligation to help free people from oppression". It emerged last week that US agencies were gathering millions of phone records and monitoring internet data. A spokesman for the US Office of the Director of National Intelligence said the case had been referred to the Department of Justice as a criminal matter. Meanwhile a petition posted on the White House website, calling for Mr Snowden's immediate pardon, has gathered more than 30,000 signatures. However an opinion poll commissioned by the Washington Post suggests a majority of Americans ...
The Sinister Truth About Obama And Islam June 5, 2013 by John Myers UPI “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation…” -Barack Obama Who is President Barack Obama and what does he want? That he is an enigma is indisputable. The ultra-Left continues to see him as a transformative figure that will remake America. His critics agree that Obama wants to change America, but not for the better. I decided to find out by reading half a dozen books and taking notes over the past few months. The three books that are most compelling in their explanations of Obama are: • Richard Minter, Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide For Him. • Edward Klein, The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House. • Bob Woodward, Obama Wars. Minter’s credits include writing for The Wall Street Journal, Forbes and even the left-leaning Newsweek. Klein was a former editor for Newsweek. And the venerable Woodward was a key player that revealed Watergate when he was famously repo ...

White House Aide David Plouffe Takes Money Indirectly from Iran -- and Nobody Seems to Notice From 2012!! In 2012, a White House aide in the Obama Administration is revealed to have received a six-figure amount from a company connected to Iran, and nothing happens. The press doesn’t seem to care; the establishment is unruffled; even opposition Republicans have hardly noticed. If we, as a nation, had been this un-vigilant back during '30s or the '40s, America might not have survived. More than two weeks after it ran, we can see now what should have been a big bang of a news story -- the August 5 report in the Washington Post that David Plouffe, White House senior adviser, had accepted $100,000 from MTN, a South Africa-based mobile-phone company--a company that does multi-billion dollar business with Iran. Yet the story has, in fact, turned out to be a whimper. At Monday’s White House press conference -- the first such Q and A session in eight weeks -- the press found time to ask questions about Syria, ...
* Cybersecurity to be high on summit agenda * Seeking common ground with China against N.Korea President Barack Obama will tell Chinese President Xi Jinping at a California summit this week that Washington considers Beijing responsible for any cyber attacks launched from Chinese soil and must take action to curb high-tech spying, White House officials said on Tuesday. Underscoring growing U.S. suspicions of a Chinese role in cyber espionage that has targeted U.S. government entities and major corporations, aides to Obama made clear the issue would be high on the agenda at a relatively informal retreat to begin on Friday. The talks, Xi's first encounter with Obama since taking over the presidency in March, are meant to allow the leaders to get to know each other away from the spotlight of Washington and begin easing mistrust between the world's two biggest economic powers. But any feel-good vibe at the luxury resort in the desert near Palm Springs, could be soured by Obama taking a hard line with Xi over C ...
Could Chris Christie Appoint a Democrat to the US Senate? That's the question the Washington Post's Sean Sullivan asks as the New Jersey Governor faces the task of replacing the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg in the U.S. Senate. The New York Times notes the decision is "fraught with pitfalls" and reports Christie's fear of Newark Mayor Cory Booker appearing on the same ballot as his own re-election is driving the decision. Meanwhile, Christie is cashing in donations from top Democratic fundraisers and other traditionally liberal donors across the country. According to the Star-Ledger, the checks are flying into the Republican governor's war chest from all sorts of unlikely places — the hedge fund run by liberal billionaire George Soros, for example, and the politically progressive halls of the University of California, Berkeley. The nascent support from Democratic donors is an early sign of Christie's fundraising prowess in a potential run for the White House in 2016.

"Eric Holder is stunned and deeply troubled to discover that he personally approved a decision to subpoena Fox News telephone records. Eric Holder had no idea until he read it in the Washington Post over breakfast after reading the Style section piece on what fabulous shoes White House Counsel Kathy Ruemmler wears." - Mark Steyn
Washington Post: President Obama plans to nominate James B. Comey, a former senior Justice Department official in the George W. Bush administration, to replace Robert S. Mueller III as FBI director, according to two people with knowledge of the selection process. Comey was famously involved in a 2004 hospital-room confrontation with White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales and the president’s chief of staff, Andrew H. Card Jr. The two White House officials were attempting to persuade Attorney General John D. Ashcroft, who was recovering from emergency surgery to remove his gallbladder, to reauthorize a controversial warrantless domestic eavesdropping program. Comey, who was acting attorney general in Ashcroft’s absence, had refused to agree to extend the program. When he learned that the White House was attempting to go around him and get the ill Ashcroft to sign off on an extension, Comey rushed to George Washington University Medical Center, arriving just before Gonzales and Card. Comey explained to Ash ...
The Secret Service says a letter similar to ones sent to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been intercepted by a White House mail screening facility. The agency says the letter has been turned over to the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force for testing and investigation. Officials have said that two threatening letters postmarked in Louisiana and containing traces of the deadly poison ricin were sent to Bloomberg in New York and to his gun-control group in Washington.
Yesterday, the Washington Post published a story on embattled White House legal counsel Kathryn Ruemmler, who was thrust into the spotlight last week over her management of the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups. Halfway through the piece, Post reporters Philip Rucker and Juliet Eilperin turned their attentions southward. They quoted the Wall Street Journal on Ruemmler’s “stunning 4-inch bright pink stiletto spikes,” noted that her shoe collection inspired the blog Above the Law to dub her a “litigatrix,” and reported that “her shoes—which include pairs from designers Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin—are so legendary that everyone from the president down teases her about her footwear.” Then, Eilperin dived further into Ruemmler’s closet for a companion piece titled “A White House Counsel known for her shoes.” Apparently, one pair has paisleys on them. High-heel name-drops like these are a scourge on journalistic profiles of powerful women. For some journalists, reportin ...
Liberals turn on Holder Just one week ago, the Washington Post ‘s Ezra Klein confidently assured his readers that “the scandals are falling apart.” Now, after another week of tough Congressional hearings and media reporting, it’s doubtful anybody believes that is true. Emerging from a White House meeting Tuesday, Klein himself wrote Wednesday that “heads should roll at the IRS.” But because Obama failed to appoint a head of the IRS before the scandal broke, there was no one readily fireable once the scope of the problem became known. Now liberals, including Klein, are calling for the head of career civil servant Lois Lerner, who had a well-established history of using government power to harass conservatives long before she came to the IRS. Problem is, as a career civil servant, Lerner has no duty to “fall on the sword” to protect Obama and the Democratic Party. She apparently has been put on paid administrative leave but is also refusing to resign. Without a scapegoat to sacrifice, the IR ...
The Militant Vol. 77/No. 21 June 3, 2013 BY JOHN STUDER AND SUSAN LAMONT Revelations of President Barack Obama’s administration targeting political groups and media have exploded since mid-May, shedding light on broader trends toward increasing White House reliance on executive power and encroachments on political rights. Media reports have detailed actions by the Internal Revenue Service to target hundreds of Tea Party conservative groups for special probes of their tax status. This comes in the guise of promoting campaign financial disclosure of influence by “big money” and “special interests.” The agency also singled out supporters of Republican candidates for audits and investigation. At the same time, the Justice Department admits opening far-reaching wiretapping and spy operations against The Associated Press and other reporters. The aim, department officials claim, was to stop leaks to the press from government employees. On May 19 the Washington Post reported that the Justice Department ...

White House, lawmakers resume bill talks. SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - U.S. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers said on Friday negotiations with the White House on a new cybersecurity bill have resumed, and the two sides are not "that far apart" after making progress this week. The Michigan Republican told Reuters that both sides are "very close" on agreeing about the roles that the Department of Homeland Security and other government agencies would play to better defend against cyber attacks. They are also negotiating ways to minimize the transfer and use of personal information from companies to the government, Rogers said. No written drafts have been exchanged, the talks are informal and no deal is imminent, a committee staffer said. In a joint interview with the senior Democrat on his committee, Dutch Ruppersberger, Rogers said the talks have been aided by increasing concerns about the costs of cyber attacks. "What helped is that The New York Times, Washington Post and Wall Street Journal w ...
Aneesh Chopra to run for Virginia Lieutenant Governor via Washington Post: (7/12/2012) Aneesh Chopra, the nation’s first chief technology officer, will announce Thursday that he is running for lieutenant Aneesh Chopra. Chopra, a Democrat who was secretary of technology under former governor Tim Kaine, left the White House in January as he began to move seriously toward his first run for elective office. Since then, he has raised more than $500,000 through the federal Innovate Virginia Fund, a large sum for an unannounced candidate. The money can be transferred to a state account. Chopra has been trying to build up support among Democratic activists and campaigning for his two former bosses — Kaine (D), who is running for U.S.Senate this year — and President Obama, who will face a tough fight in the swing state of Virginia. No other Democrat has announced for Lieutenant Governor yet but former delegate Paula Miller of Hampton Roads has said she is considering it. Several Republicans have already gott ...
According to Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward, the White House and House Republicans were struggling to come up with an agreement to raise the debt ceiling in the summer of 2011, the White House suggested the sequester — a package of automatic spending cuts that were so horrible they would inspire a bipartisan super-committee to cut a better deal. The sequester passed with a majority of Republicans; Paul Ryan said it "represents a victory for those committed to controlling government spending and growing our economy." But the super-committee failed. During the fiscal cliff talks in December, Congress decided to deal with the Bush tax cuts and delayed dealing with the sequester for a few months. That is how we arrived here, with the Pentagon delaying the deployment of one aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf — where we usually have two to act as deterrence to Iran — and the Army threatening to stop hiring troops' spouses for civilian jobs on base and stop funding things like the Army Substance A ...
Former Adviser Criticizes Obama on Afghan War By michael R. Gordon March 3, 2013 Washington, USA The New York Times A new book by a former senior State Department policy expert paints a sharply critical picture of the Obama Administration's handling of foreign policy, detailing destructive turf battles and policy debates that challenge the White House's claim that its management of the Afghan war is a vital accomplishment. Written by Vali Nasr, an academic who was recruited by the envoy Richard C. Holbrooke to work in the State Department, the book, "The Dispensable Nation," is to be published next month. A lengthy excerpt from the book is being published on Monday by Foreign Policy magazine. Part diplomatic memoir, part policy analysis, the book is a survey of foreign affairs during the Obama Administration. Mr. Nasr portrays the White House's handling of foreign policy as overly cautious, sometimes disengaged and at times even politicized - an approach he asserts has led to a general waning of American ...

Budget; Farm Bill; Livestock Production; and, Trade Posted By Keith Good On March 4, 2013 Budget Issues Zachary A. Goldfarb reported in Saturday’s Washington Post that, “President Obama acknowledged Friday that deep federal budget cuts are here with no end in sight, an outcome that he warned would harm the economy but said he lacked the power to stop. “A final attempt to find common ground with congressional leaders at a White House meeting proved fruitless. The president continued to press for higher taxes as part of a deal, and Republicans continued to refuse — clearing the way for $85 billion in cuts this fiscal year and $1.2 trillion over the next decade. “The reductions, which Obama formally ordered late Friday, are likely to remain in place for the foreseeable future. There had been speculation that they might be adjusted later this month, when lawmakers must agree on a new deal to fund the government or risk a shutdown. But Obama made clear Friday that he would seek to avoid a shutdown ev ...
1. Blame Obama — the sequester was his White House’s idea. Identifying the origins of the sequester has become a major Washington fight. Bob Woodward weighed in recently with a Washington Post op-ed making the case that the idea began in the White House. He’s right in a narrow sense, mainly because he focuses on the middle of the 2011 negotiations between Obama and Republican lawmakers. If you look before and after, a different picture emerges. Whose fault is it? Will it really hurt? In our view, what happened is quite straightforward: In 2011, House Republican leaders used their new majority to force their priorities on the Democratically controlled Senate and the president by holding the debt limit hostage to demands for deep and immediate spending cuts. After negotiations between Obama and House Speaker John A. Boehner failed (Eric Cantor recently took credit for scuttling a deal), the parties at the eleventh hour settled on a two-part solution: immediate discretionary spending caps that would re ...
"Woodward at War" by By MIKE ALLEN and JIM VANDEHEI | 2/27/13 8:01 PM EST Updated: 2/28/13 7:42 PM EST Bob Woodward called a senior White House official last week to tell him that in a piece in that weekend’s Washington Post, he was going to question President Barack Obama’s account of how sequestration came about — and got a major-league brushback. The Obama aide “yelled at me for about a half-hour,” Woodward told us in an hourlong interview yesterday around the Georgetown dining room table where so many generations of Washington’s powerful have spilled their secrets. Digging into one of his famous folders, Woodward said the tirade was followed by a page-long email from the aide, one of the four or five administration officials most closely involved in the fiscal negotiations with the Hill. “I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today,” the official typed. “You’re focusing on a few specific trees that give a very wrong impression of the forest. But perhaps we will just ...
Obama Sequester Friday continues... Illinois Sequestered! Impact Would Be Deep, Wide, Ironic From the Beechwood Supporter 03/01/2013 "The White House on Sunday detailed how the deep spending cuts set to begin this week would affect programs in every state and the District, as President Obama launched a last-ditch effort to pressure congressional Republicans to compromise on a way to stop the across-the-board cuts," the Washington Post reports. Illinois, according to the White House, would lose $33.4 million in primary and secondary education funding; $6.4 million in clean air and water funding; and services to approximately 2,700 children enrolled in Head Start, among other cuts. While that's bad enough, a Beachwood analysis has found the White House left out a whole lotta stuff, including: * Pat Quinn only allowed to describe Illinoisans as "good," not "good and true." * CPS forced to use 1965 textbooks instead of 1982 textbooks. * Chicago police chief Garry McCarthy only allowed to introduce one new str ...
Bob Woodward To Hannity: I Never Called WH Email A 'Threat,' Source: Huffington Post Bob Woodward set about trying to defend himself on Thursday night from the widespread derision that has greeted his account of his hostile exchange with White House economic adviser Gene Sperling. Woodward spoke to his own newspaper, the Washington Post, and appeared on Sean Hannity's Fox News show to discuss the now infamous emails between himself and Sperling. On Wednesday, Woodward set the media world chattering when he told Wolf Blitzer that Sperling's email —which said, in part, that, "as a friend," he thought Woodward would "regret" a hotly contested claim he was making about the Obama Administration's handling of the budget sequester — had made him "very uncomfortable." He did not dispute Blitzer's comment that he had been "threatened" by Sperling. Nor did he quarrel with the Politico editors who interviewed him and wrote, "Woodward clear he saw it as a veiled threat." When the emails were released in full by P ...

Bob Woodward: A 'Very Senior' White House Person Warned Me I'd 'Regret' What I'm Doing Bob Woodward said this evening on CNN that a "very senior person" at the White House warned him in an email that he would "regret doing this," the same day he has continued to slam President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known as the sequester. CNN host Wolf Blitzer said that the network invited a White House official to debate Woodward on-air, but the White House declined. "It makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters, 'You're going to regret doing something that you believe in,'" Woodward said. "I think they're confused," Woodward said of the White House's pushback on his reporting. The White House aide who Woodward said threatened him was Gene Sperling, the director of the White House Economic Council, BuzzFeed's Ben Smith reported. Earlier today on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Woodward ripped into Obama in what has become an ongoing feud between the veteran Washington Post journalis ...
"Bob Woodward is a horse's *** " Bill's talking about the Washington Post writer's flap with the White House over sequestration this morning.
White House is getting a little upset with some journalist. WH economic advisor, Gene Sperling sent a somewhat threatening email to Washington Post editor and journalist Bob Woodward because he wrote that the sequester was Oabama's idea and of course they have been trying to place that blame on the Reps. Of course you probably haven't heard anything about this if you get your news from ABC, NBC, CBS and God forbid MSNBC. This Pres. has lied to the public so much but these news outlets don't report any of it. I remember when he said he would cut the deficit in half by the end of his FIRST term. Hope you all realize that didn't happen! And his scare tactics are getting old and pathetic. What a phoney, fake this man is.
Bob Woodward and the White House have suddenly become embroiled in a very public shoving match over stuff the legendary Washington Post reporter has said about the origin and nature of the "sequester."
A little tongue in cheek... Who’d Figure: Bob Woodward exposing White House lies by Paulie Crazy right-wing “journalist” Bob Woodward is at it again. The Washington Post reporter who, with the help of some Jewish guy whose name escapes me, took down the Nixon administration nearly forty years ago, is using his conservative agenda to embarrass President Barack Obama. Woodward has been on the forefront of clarifying that the sequestration idea came from the White House, that the president personally approved the plan and later signed it into law. The veteran Washington Post reporter is resorting to a ploy that many of today’s journalists aren’t familiar with – facts. “Of course Bob Woodward has the facts on his side. He is a real – old guard – reporter,” said White House press secretary James Carney. “But the administration doesn’t work with facts and neither does anyone else in Washington. Mr. Woodward is from a school of thought that no longer exists.” Woodward’s Journalism 10 ...

Michelle Obama's appearance during the Academy Awards presentation Sunday night, where she announced the Best Picture winner via satellite from the White House, came as a big surprise to those watching the show. But it comes as no surprise that a number of commentators were displeased with the First Lady's cameo on the show, and have not been shy about voicing their opinions. [ Related: Oscars best and worst moments ] Jennifer Rubin, a conservative columnist for the Washington Post, told NBC News that she believed Mrs. Obama's appearance made both her and her husband "seem small and grasping." Rubin also spoke of the First Lady's frequent presence in the media recently (usually promoting her anti-obesity campaign), saying, "there is a sense of going too far and too much and becoming so ubiquitous that people don't consider you something special." Rubin repeated the point in her column, saying, "It is not eno ...
Notice how quickly Obama shifted the blame to the Republicans? Whenever that weasel accepts the blame for something it is probably for blowing cigarette smoke up a bypasser’s kilt.

OUCH From the Washington Post - This prompted Woodward to go over his notes and interviews once again, to make sure he had gotten it right. “After reviewing all the interviews and the extensive material I have on this issue, it looks like President Obama told a whopper,” Woodward said. “Based on what Jack Lew said in Florida today, I have asked the White House to correct the record.” We had been wavering between Three and Four Pinocchios. But in light’s of Lew’s decision to doubledown on Obama’s claim, we agree it’s a whopper. Four Pinocchios

Firearms Industry Breaking With Liberal States Here's the latest example of head-splitting cognitive dissonance in Washington: President Obama used his State of the Union address to crusade for a revitalized U.S. manufacturing sector. But while he pays lip service to supporting businesses that build their products on American soil, Obama and his left-wing operatives are *** bent on driving a key sector of the U.S. manufacturing industry six feet under: the American firearms and ammunition industry. The White House is pushing new government spending to "spur economic growth," protect manufacturing plants and "create good-paying jobs" to help America's middle class. Yet across the country, with aggressive lobbying by the White House itself, Democrats are working to destroy tens of thousands of good-paying jobs and the firms that created them. Assault rhetoric has lasting real-world consequences. In New York, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo imposed radical, ineffectual gun-grabbing measures that are backfiring ...
Why there Were no CIA Torture Black Sites in Latin America (Grandin) Posted: 18 Feb 2013 10:33 PM PST Greg Grandin writes at Tomdispatch.com: The map tells the story. To illustrate a damning new report, “Globalizing Torture: CIA Secret Detentions and Extraordinary Rendition,” recently published by the Open Society Institute, the Washington Post put together an equally damning graphic: it’s soaked in red, as if with blood, showing that in the years after 9/11, the CIA turned just about the whole world into a gulag archipelago. Back in the early twentieth century, a similar red-hued map was used to indicate the global reach of the British Empire, on which, it was said, the sun never set. It seems that, between 9/11 and the day George W. Bush left the White House, CIA-brokered torture never saw a sunset either. All told, of the 190-odd countries on this planet, a staggering 54 participated in various ways in this American torture system, hosting CIA “black site” prisons, allowing their airspace a . ...
You'll hear it all over cable news and the networks and in every lede paragraph from the Washington Post to the LA Times: Republicans are conducting an unprecedented filibuster of Chuck Hagel. Where did the media get this buzz word that's repeated breathlessly by the obedient servants of the White House? From the White House, of course: Asked about the Senate vote during an online “fireside hangout,” Obama said that he expects that Hagel will be confirmed. But he slammed Senate Republicans for their “unprecedented filibuster” of a defense chief nominee. So, is the cloture vote for a President's cabinet secretary really unprecedented? To answer the question, we first have to address the question the media isn't asking, but should be: Is it unprecedented for a president to put forth such an unqualified, controversial and divisive nominee to head the Pentagon and thumb his nose at Senators asking legitimate questions before moving to a straight up or down vote? You'll see reports backing up the smo . ...

Riddle Me This Obama: If Healthcare Costs are Our Problem, What Was Obamacare About? By: John Ransom This is a time when the population of America should be throwing rose petals at the feet of the Great Leader, Miracle Worker, Economist, Ph.D and Professor of Constitutional history, Dr. Barack H. Obama, MD. All of our problems should be solved now. Two years ago we were told and sold that Obamacare, the keystone legislative effort of Obama’s first two years, would solve our problems when it comes to out-of-control government spending. It’s a deficit reducer, Washington Post wonk Ezra Klein told us about the government takeout of healthcare under the banner of “reform.” Just pass Obamacare and we’ll find out how good it is, said Nancy Pelosi, which proved in the end to be a kind of a epitaph for her Speakership of the House.

102-Year-Old Miami Woman Who Waited Hours to Vote Will Sit With Michelle Obama During SOTU Marco Rubio may be delivering the Republican response to Barack Obama's State of the Union speech tonight, but he won't be the only local face you'll see on TV. Desiline Victor, age 102, has been chosen to sit with First Lady Michelle Obama during the proceedings. Victor, a Haitian immigrant and resident of North Miami Beach, waited in line three hours during the first day of early voting, and poll workers eventually advised her to come back. She returned that night and finally cast her ballot. "I'm very happy, very proud," Victor told the Washington Post through a translator. Victor came to American in 1989 and toiled as a farm worker in Belle Glade. She became a naturalized citizen in 2005.

HOW THE Iraq War WAS SOLD - by Melvin A. Goodman, - As George W. Bush and his national security team marched the US off to war in Iraq, they were aided by key news outlets, especially the neocon-dominated Washington Post. Now a decade later, the Post still won’t take a hard, honest look at what was done, writes ex-CIA analyst Melvin A. Goodman. - The Washington Post continues to allow former members of the Bush administration, including President George W. Bush, to distort the case for going to war against Iraq in 2003 and to blame the intelligence from the Central Intelligence Agency for the decision to use force. In the “Outlook” section on Feb. 3 (“Still Fighting over a flawed case for war”), the Post cites memoirs from six key decision-makers, who are unwilling to acknowledge that the Iraq War was a deadly undertaking paved by lies and deceit. It was never a case of whether the White House distorted the intelligence it received on Iraq or whether the Central Intelligence Agency provided bad ...

It's started! And our Australian friends are upset about (only) a 9 month mational campaign this year.Here are the first rankings of potential GOP presidential nominees by Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post: 10. John Thune: The South Dakota senator looks the part of a presidential candidate — tall, dark, handsome — and has a record that conservatives love but isn’t scary to the party establishment. The issue for Thune is whether he wants it badly enough. He had a golden opportunity to get into the 2012 race as a major contender and, oddly, passed. As the Post’s Dan Balz wrote at the time, Thune’s “no” to 2012 could well have a lingering impact on his chances in 2016. 9. Rob Portman: He doesn’t bring the glitz and glamour of some of the other names of this list, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t include the Ohio senator. His experience as White House budget director makes him a credible voice on economic matters, and his current gig as National Republican Senatorial Committee vice chai ...
It seems strange that a photo of President Obama firing a shotgun, the last thing you’d expect from an anti-gun President, would surface just hours before the murder of a former U.S. Navy Seal and author of American Sniper. Was this professional hit on Chris Kyle a subtle symbolic warning from the White House that Obama won’t let anyone live who tries to upstage him or his policies of the New World Order? This may sound crazy, but are the people and organizations behind the New World Order, which former Senator Chuck Hagel mentioned to Obama in Bob Woodward's article in the Washington Post on Thursday, deliberately killing off our heroes as a warning to others that may eventually try to defend the "Old Order” of national sovereignty?
President Barack Obama sought to engender popular support for his gun reform proposals announced Wednesday by fighting critics on their own linguistic turf—framing them in terms of freedom. Many of the president's detractors have long felt his domestic agenda includes tearing apart individual freedoms, particularly the Second Amendment right to bear arms. A letter circulated by the National Rifle Association during a gun conference in Las Vegas Wednesday said the White House's series of meetings with outside groups to listen and discuss possible gun reform measures was a "lie." [PHOTOS: Obama Unveils New Gun Control Proposals] "They didn't listen to gun owners' concerns," wrote Wayne LaPierre, NRA executive Vice President, according to a copy of the letter obtained by the Washington Post.

Washington Post: NRA’s new ad calls Obama ‘elitist hypocrite’ : "The National Rifle Association released a new video on its Web site Tuesday calling President Obama an “elitist hypocrite” for having Secret Service protection of his daughters at school but saying he was “skeptical” about installing armed guards in all schools. The NRA’s provocative, 35-second video is as harsh as any attack ad in a political campaign and illustrates how emotionally charged and personal the debate over gun control is becoming. “Are the president’s kids more important than yours?” a deep-voiced narrator asks. “Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? Mr. Obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he’s just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security.” A White House spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

According to the Washington Post, Biden’s comments highlighted the serious gaps in medical and epidemiological knowledge about guns caused by the current restrictions: Biden also mentioned strengthening the ability of federal agencies to conduct research about gun violence. He drew a comparison between current limits on federal gathering of data about gun violence and 1970s-era restrictions on federal research into the causes of traffic fatalities. Biden stressed a need for the government to collect information about “what kind of weapons are used most to kill people” and “what kind of weapons a ...

Talk Back: What, if any, new gun laws should be passed? We're getting our first glimpse into what the White House may propose in terms of gun legislation. According to the Washington Post, Joe Biden and his task force are considering: reinstating the ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines; requiring universal background checks for gun buyers; establishing a national gun sale database; strengthening mental health checks; and imposing stiffer penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors. Wow. Ideas. Something to talk about. Oh forget that: already, NRA-backed lawmakers are shooting down the Administration's approach. Sen.

A lil somethin I found about hostess. No one wanted President Obama doin bailouts but now petitioning the White House to Nationalize the twinkie...gimme a break! DENVER (MarketWatch) -- It's time to stop lamenting the Twinkie and do something. The Washington Post just ran a "eulogy" for the cellophane-wrapped snack cake. The Chicago Tribune ran a "requiem." The New Yorker raised the question "Who Killed Twinkie?" Twinkie gougers are taking advantage of such reports, asking exorbitant sums for Hostess Brands products on Internet auction sites such as eBay. There's now a proposal on the Whitehouse.gov petition site titled "Nationalize the Twinkie industry." It reads: "We the undersigned hereby request Barack Obama to immediately nationalize the Twinkie industry and prevent our nation from losing her sweet, creamy center." Much more than our nation's sweet, creamy center is at stake. Perhaps that's why a federal bankruptcy judge in White Plains, N.Y., on Monday suggested Hostess and its striking bakers go ba ...
Obama's "Victory Lap", Israel Under Siege, Scandalous Nov. 15, 2012 Obama’s “Victory LapPresident Barack Obama held his first press conference in months yesterday. Was news made? Did we learn anything new? Not really. This front page Washington Post headline says it all: “Meeting The Press, Taking A Victory Lap.” The president’s comments yesterday were reminiscent of his “I won” quip to congressional conservatives four years ago. Once again, Obama claimed a mandate to raise taxes. Presumably, House conservatives also have a mandate not to raise taxes. The one part of the press conference where Obama potentially made news was his combative and aggressive response to a question about opposition to promoting U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to Secretary of State. Here was Obama’s response: “As I’ve said before, she made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. If Senator McCain and Senator Gra ...
Obama meets with Cambodia’s longtime ‘strongman’ amid rights concerns, but also growth By Associated Press, Published: November 19, Washington Post dot com PHNOM PENH, Cambodia — President Barack Obama arrived in Cambodia on Monday having just won four more years in office, but that is nothing compared to his host, Hun Sen. The 60-year-old Cambodian prime minister has held power since Ronald Reagan was in the White House, and says he’s not stepping down until he is 90. Hun Sen is known as one of Asia’s most Machiavellian politicians, with a knack for making sure his rivals end up in jail or in exile. A laudatory biography is subtitled “Strongman of Cambodia,” and some would say that’s putting it mildly. Through his country’s civil wars, a U.N. peace process and several elections, the one-time communist cadre has always managed to come out on top. Over the last decade, he has also overseen modest economic growth and stability in a country plagued by desperate poverty and nearly destroye ...
POSTED ON NOVEMBER 15, 2012 BY RGRENELL Susan Rice’S UN RECORD SPEAKS FOR ITSELF… Most reporters haven’t been following Ambassador Susan Rice’s performance at the United Nations since her appointment in January 2009. To many journalists, Rice’s misleading interviews on the five Sunday Shows the weekend after the 9/11/12 terrorist attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were one of the first times they had heard from her. To veteran foreign policy observers, Rice’s shameful performance that Sunday was one of many blunders over the last four years. Rice’s refusal to answer questions about why she blamed the Benghazi violence on a YouTube video was met yesterday with a feisty defense from President Obama saying don’t blame Rice because the White House sent her out to do the Sunday Shows. The “stop picking on Susan” retort from the president looked like a big brother defending his little sister on the playground. It was an odd moment for a woman wanting to be Ame ...
Government preps to move its "Cyberwar" from the internet to the streets. The White House is being asked by attorneys to explain a top-secret presidential policy directive signed last month that may allow for the domestic deployment of the US military for the sake of so-called cybersecurity. Lawyers with the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) have filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the office of US President Barack Obama in hopes if hearing more about an elusive order signed in secrecy in mid-October but only made public in an article published this week in the Washington Post. According to persons close to the White House who have seen the order and spoke with the Post, Presidential Policy Directive 20 (PP20) aims to “finalize new rules of engagement that would guide commanders when and how the military can go outside government networks to prevent a cyberattack that could cause significant destruction or casualties.” Attorneys with EPIC are now demanding that they see t ...

Thanks to the American people, Islamic terrorist will continue to be entertained in the Obama White House 4) Obama Admin Flies Member of Designated Terrorist Group to Washington D.C. for Meeting with President’s National Security Staff in White House, Vows to Admit More Terrorist Members to U.S. (May 2012) Another bombshell article from Eli Lake reported that Hani Noor Eldin, a member of the Egyptian terrorist group Gamaa Islamiya, was issued a visa in violation of federal law and flown in May to the U.S. by our government as part of an official delegation from Egypt. The State Department’s website identifies Gamaa Islamiya as a specially designated terrorist organization, and as Lake noted in his report, Eldin readily acknowledges his membership in the group, which recently announced that they were prepared to fight to install Islamic law in Egypt, even using violence. Jennifer Rubin at the Washington Post also reported that among Eldin’s tour stops in Washington D.C. was the White House, where he ...

In last week of campaign, Obama gets good luck and good news Ezra Klein / Washington Post 6:21 AM In campaigns, timing can be everything. And the Obama campaign has picked a good time -- the very last days of a close campaign -- for an extraordinary run of good news and good luck. In the good news bucket is the high marks President Obama received for his handling of the Sandy superstorm. According to the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll, 79 percent of voters say the president has done a "good' or "excellent" job responding to the storm. Among those voters is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who made national news with his praise of the president. Further extending the White House's string of good headlines was the endorsement of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who said he was moved by Sandy to endorse the candidate with a better plan to address catastrophic climate change. That took one more day of headlines away from Mitt Romney, who had been laying low during the storm but was back on the campaign ...
The Democrats and their surrogates (Pravda, aka, the mainstream media) are saying that Fox News and the GOP is politicizing the Benghazi incident. If that is true, then that means that the Washington Post was politicizing the Watergate incident right before the 1972 re-election of Nixon. I remember that event well. I was in Fort Leonard Wood in tech school when Nixon resigned. But, let's just go ahead and say that it is true. It is being politicized by the GOP. Then you have to accept what else is happening and that is this: The mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and the White House are also politicizing this event. Why do I say that? Rest assured, that if there was evidence that would make the administration look good, the White House would be all over it in press releases, press briefings, and releasing info to their surrogates. They are keeping mum about the incident as best as possible until after the election. If it were left up to them we would still think this was a video and a prote ...
Richard Cohen, a columnist for the ultra-liberal Washington Post and a liberal's liberal himself, expresses the angst many Democrats are feeling about their affirmative-action president ... " ... somewhere between the campaign and the White House itself, Obama got lost. It turned out he had no cause at all. Expanding health insurance was Hillary Clinton’s longtime goal, and even After Obama adopted it, he never argued for it with any fervor. In an unfairly mocked campaign speech, he promised to slow the rise of the oceans and begin to heal the planet. But when he took office, climate change was abandoned — too much trouble, too much opposition. His eloquence, it turned out, was reserved for campaigning. Obama never espoused a cause bigger than his own political survival."
I think we should take the Wayback Machine to 1975 and see what's happening in the newly revised history of the United States according to the major American media. Here we are, observing young agressive reporters Woodward and Bernstien, meeting in the shadows of the underground parking garage with an anonymous source only known as DeepCover (only recently finally revealed to have been White House operative Bob Haldeman), plotting with them on how to keep the lid on Watergate and make sure the public don't know. Whata team they were, Nixon and the Washington Post. And there's old Sam Ervin himself, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, getting to the bottom of who would dare insult the President. DeepCover was asking them to keep the news that White House Counsel John Dean, who had been scheduled to testify tomorrow before Ervin, was found drowned in the Watergate tide pool. Ervin agreed to erase it from the schedule so no one would be the wiser, bu these young ace reporters needed to pass along ...

Lyndon Johnson had long wanted the presidency but decided to wait for 1968 after he became Vice President. But his descion to wait for 1968 changed when Kennedy began refering to him as "his johnson" which irritated the *** out of LBJ.

Hold It...I don't agree with Milbrink of the Washington Post, who's only point is to be a Monday morning quarterback. First President Obama well knows he's president and not a king. Now everyone wants to get on the band wagon and just pile on...If anyone realizes what happened, it's Barack Obama. John Sinnunu called the President too lazy to prepare to prepare for the debates. Andrea Mitchell in her interview rebuked John Sununu asking "are you saying the President is lazy?" Both Mr. Sununu and Romney don't have Obama's responsibility as President of the United States.

The President has affairs of state, the country and being commander and chief overseeing a war.

.” A Bold New Form of Media Bias In light of the Washington Post basing its front-page headline on a survey with an astonishingly small sample and an astonishingly high margin of error, it is good to sum up what we’ve seen from the press in recent weeks. ONE: For about eight days, the Obama Administration told the public that their best assessment of the murder of our ambassador in Libya and three other Americans was that it was the result of a spontaneous protest against a tape mocking Islam on YouTube. This explanation sounded funny from the beginning -- even in a place like Benghazi, who brings rocket-propelled grenades and mortars to a protest? -- and it seemed surprising that so many in the administration, including U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney seemed to dismiss the idea that a terror attack against American targets on September 11 was a serious possibility. Subsequent reports have revealed astonishingly insufficient security for a site with American lives ...
Get to know King attackers by 'following the money' "Follow the money." Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward, received this advice from his source Deep Throat, leading the him to the White House and ultimately to the demise of Richard Nixon's presidency. When I learned that a Republican PAC was pouring cash into Maine to target Angus King with negative ads, I thought I would do a little digging of my own. I wanted to follow the money and learn who was trying to buy our Senate seat and tarnish King. The PAC's biggest donor is Goldman Sachs. Wall Street financial firms dominate the donor list. The biggest individual contributors include Donald Trump and the Koch brothers. The money is plainly from away. The PAC's ad attacks King for allegedly benefiting from a federal loan (more on that in a moment). Presumably his detractors believe that we should distrust someone who invests in a Maine business that plays by the rules and applies for a government-backed loan. I did a little more digging and made two mo ...
As the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) calculated, and Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen first reported, Obama attended only 43.8 percent of his PDBs between January 23, 2009 (three days after his inauguration), and May 31, 2012. Available nearly every day, the PDB allows the commander-in-chief to hear directly from top intelligence professionals about the latest threats to U.S. safety. These experts are on hand to answer questions, hear suggestions, and otherwise help Obama foil America’s enemies. But Obama has had higher priorities. According to GAI’s data, which was culled from the official White House calendar and Politico’s news coverage of that schedule, Obama chose to skip his PDBs and, instead, simply read his briefing book. This is a bit like studying one’s chest X-rays at home, having spurned a radiologist’s offer to interpret them and answer pertinent questions. In this sense, Obama quietly reviewed his national-security X-rays alone during 56.2 percent of the time GAI ...

The Democrats made a great deal of the "War on Women" at their convention. Did it not strike anyone else as odd that they lauded two great sexual predators as "heroes"? Bill Clinton spoke at the Democratic National Convention to save Barack Obama’s failed presidency. But did he instead remind the American people that he mistreated women — from an intern who was the same age of his daughter to his wife who had to grin and bear his infidelity in public? Clinton had sex with an impressionable and vulnerable young woman who was serving as a White House intern. He abused his authority in the same way some teachers abuse their authority by having sex with their students. Then there were the charges of rape by Juanita Broaddrick. The late Christopher Hitchens’ book, "No One Left to Lie To", argued that Broaddrick’s claim is credible and shows similarities to Paula Jones’ later allegation of sexual harassment. Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen commented, ‘And yet, I cannot get [Broaddrick’s] ...
U.S./Top News 1) The U.S. plans to designate the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network as a foreign terrorist organization, the Washington Post reports. The action follows sharp debate within the administration, with many State Department and White House officials arguing that it would achieve no substantive purpose and would undermine hopes of a peace deal with the Taliban. Officials who opposed the action argued that attempts to separate the Haqqanis from the Taliban - which is not a designated terrorist organization - would inhibit the resumption of suspended U.S.-Taliban talks. 2) U.S. law permit exports of medicine to Iran even under the latest sanctions in theory, but not necessarily in practice, notes the Export Law Blog. It seems reasonable to conclude that U.S. sanctions have a chilling effect which extends beyond their actual scope. Even if banks might be permitted to deal with certain Iranian financial institutions in connection with exports of medicine, banks may well decide that parsing the General ...
The First Lady of the United States is not elected, has no constitutional duties and receives no salary, but that doesn’t mean the position is without its privileges – including a staff of 22 White House employees who make a combined nearly $1.5 million per year. Various journalists have scoured the White House’s annual report to Congress on the West Wing payroll and listed those names that serve as members First Lady Michelle Obama’s staff. Combined, their salaries total $1,495,700. By comparison, a similar examination of the 2008 payroll, printed in the Washington Post, shows First Lady Laura Bush tallied 17 staffers, who combined made roughly $1.28 million. News of so many taxpayer-funded salaries attending the First Lady – which doesn’t include the White House servant staff or the Secret Service detail assigned to the first family – has prompted some commentators to question if so many staffers are necessary. “[Michele Obama] doesn’t perform any official duties. But this hasn’t det ...
Sunday, From the Washington Post - Book Review First Cameraman, a book by Arum Chaudhary Reviewed by: David Greenberg. One of Barrack Obama's contributions (to the presidency) has been the creation of the post of White House videographer, a job first held by an indie filmmaker and political junkie named Arum Chaudhary. The self-deprecating Chaudhary personifies the stereotype of the young slackers of Obama's 2008 campaign (or at least the fantasy version): young idealistic, highly educated and inexperienced in politics – rather like Obama himself. OUCH!

Newsmax-Rasmussen Reports poll released in late May showed the 63 percent of voters believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, an ominous sign for the incumbent. Polls in swing states also point toward a close election in November. A recent Quinnipiac University survey in Ohio showed Obama and Romney in a statistical tie in that key state. Romney leads Obama 47 percent to 41 percent in Florida, according to another Quinnipiac survey, while Obama holds an 8-point lead in Pennsylvania. Since 1960, no candidate has won the White House without winning at least 2 of those 3 states. In Virginia, which is shaping up to be a hotly contested state this year, surveys by the Washington Post and Public Policy Polling both have Obama with a razor-thin majority of the votes — 51 percent — while a Rasmussen Reports poll has Romney ahead by 1 percentage point in that state. Clearer differences may emerge as the campaigns proceed, but right now the polls indicate that the 2012 presidential election will not ...
White House to Blacks: We Reduced Crack Cocaine Penalties. Pandering for Votes. Jarrett makes unreported remarks in meeting with African Americans. This is a post that came out on June 28th.

Jarrett engaged in a wide-ranging interview session with a group of journalists at the National Association of Black Journalists’ convention in New Orleans. Jarrett made the remarks at a meeting of Black journalists and columnist clearly aimed at Obama’s reelection efforts. Mainstream media outlets covering the event did not report on her comments regarding crack cocaine.

We know what’s going on here. And some people may be afraid to say it, but I’m not. ... He’s speaking to that fringe out there who do not want to see anybody but a white person in a leadership position.” Lucas is a member of Obama’s “Truth Team,” speaking on the president’s behalf on various campaign issues in Virginia.

Authorities are investigating threatening comments made by a D.C. police officer who worked as a motorcycle escort for the White House, reports the Washington Post. The unidentified officer is said to have made the comments Wednesday (July 11), allegedly telling another officer that he would shoot Michelle Obama. As if his words weren't incriminating enough, the officer followed them up by pulling out a cell phone to show a picture of the gun he would use to carry out the violent act. After hearing the threat, another officer reported it to a lieutenant who notified superiors. well cot ***
I'm watching GMA this morning and listening to one of the men on Obama's campaign talking to George and I've about been sick to my stomach on all his lies.

Brad Pitt is a great example, I don't know about you but as much as I like movies those people don't share my values or anything close to my lifestyle!

"This is a bill that everyone can be proud of — whether they’re Republican or Democrat,” said Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), chairwoman of the Environment and Public Works Committee, who led negotiations with Mica over the final package. - Washington Post “I think everybody realized that tomorrow [Saturday], if we hadn’t acted, thousands of transportation projects across the nation would come to a halt and the potential for millions of people being laid off as opposed to the opposite,” said Rep. John Mica (R-Fla.), who chairs the House Transportation Committee. After weeks of debate, the House and Senate quickly passed a package that approved new federal transportation dollars and an agreement to freeze federally subsidized student loan rates at 3.4 percent, rather than allowing them to rise Saturday night to 6.8 percent — a cost increase that would have affected more than 7 million students. The package is now headed to the White House for President Obama’s signature.

Tom Tancredo calling for the impeachment of Obama for treason. Here is one paragraph from the article, "For the first time in American history, we have a man in the White House who consciosly and brazenly disrergards his oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution. That is why I say the greatest threat to our Constitution, our safety and our liberties, is internal. Our President is an enemy of our Constitution, and as such, he is a danger to our safety, our security and our personal freedom." He is going to introduce articles of impeachment.
Louis Tackwood, agent-provocateur for the Los Angeles Police Department, exposed police involvement in "dirty tricks and murderous things" (Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, October 18, 1971). Tackwood later identified White House plumbers "Martin" and "White," linking the Pentagon to the LAPD (June 18, 1972). "Martin" and "White" were actually former CIA agents E. Howard Hunt and James McCord, both implicated in the Watergate break-in. Before the 1972 Republican National Convention was switched from San Diego to Miami, members of the LAPD formulated plans to incite riots, kidnap protesters and incredibly -- because they thought Vice President Spiro Agnew's outspoken conservatism was more to their liking -- plotted the assassination of President Nixon.
Dana Milbank of the Washington Post made an interesting observation today about Republican congressional animosity against Attorney General Eric Holder. He called the Republican’s motivation primarily partisan. Democrats he noted cited Bush’s White House Counsel Harriet Miles for contempt of Congress and now that the Republicans control the House it’s their turn. Each time the White House changes partisan hands the script of who gets accused of some type of misconduct changes and the rhetoric for who attacks and who defends heads in the opposite direction.
June is turning into such a terrible month for President Barack Obama, that even the White House now quietly believes he will lose in November, according to Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank.
While reading my e-subscription of the Washington Post today(6-7) they had an article about how Gov.Scott Walker beat back a recall election by big money media advertising. In 1929 the Stock Market crashed and wiped out investments and drove America into The Great Depression. The root cause of this economic catastrope was the policies of a Republican White House(President Herbert Hoover) and a Republican majority in Congress. The downturn took 13 years and 4 terms by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to return America to its rightful position as an ecomomic superpower. The folks that lived through that awful period didnot return Republicans to power for 40 years. Then in 1980 the Republicans nominated the Greatest Political Actor in American History(Ronald Wilson Reagan) who created masterful techniques of Media Deception to return the party that always opposed fair taxes on the rich,opposed Social Securty,Medicare and Medicaid and Collective Bargining. They knew those positions they held on the latter ...

White House visitor logs show lobbying going strong More than any president before him, Barack Obama pledged to change the political culture that has fueled the influence of lobbyists. But a review of records released by the administration shows that the industry Obama vowed to constrain is a still a regular presence at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. The visitor logs also suggest that lobbyists with personal connections to the White House enjoy the easiest access. -The Washington Post
Federal Workers Get Terrorist Evacuation Plan - The Rest of America Can Go to *** DOJgov.net Newswire August 17, 2002 In a bipartisan attempt aimed at shielding the federal bureaucracy from danger, the Bush administration has reportedly approved a safety evacuation plan for saving the nation's more than 2 million federal workers within 15 minutes. According to today's edition of the Washington Post, upon confirmation of a threat, the Office of Personnel Management, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and General Services Administration may release up to 350,000 federal workers in the Washington area and 1.8 million nationwide. Directors of the three agencies could alert the White House, local officials and regional emergency managers within minutes, the Post said. Presumably, the American taxpayers who fund these agencies' federal employees will be afforded an "after the fact" warning and be left to fend for themselves. The plan, prompted by confusion during the Sept. 11 attacks, is intended to al ...

A quote from the Washington Post "From the start of his history-making tenure, the nation’s first black president took care never to be seen making policy or political decisions aimed solely or directly at black America. His position: He is the president of the whole country, focused on broad-based fixes to “lift all boats.” The race-avoidance strategy served President Obama well, helping him attract support from many whites while also mobilizing African Americans energized by the powerful symbol of a black commander in chief. But a soaring jobless rate among African Americans and a newfound comfort by black lawmakers to criticize Obama’s economic policies are prompting the White House to recalibrate — and to focus more directly on the struggles of black America. The shift comes amid a growing concern among some Democrats that the stubborn economic conditions in minority communities might hamper efforts by Obama’s reelection campaign to generate the large black voter turnout it needs in key ci ...

Hispanic Leadership Network Dear HLN Friends, Have you read the Washington Post's article on Senator Marco Rubio's Dream Act alternative? If not, you should. Sen. Rubio's conservative policy alternative to the Dream Act is a smart solution that could unite Americans of all political stripes. Read some excerpt's below and read the full article by clicking here. In recent days, Rubio has quietly reached out to a number of immigrant advocates who are usually White House allies but have grown frustrated with some of the president's policies. Some of the activists say they are open to Rubio's effort - even though it would stop short of a provision in the Democratic-backed Dream Act to create a path to citizenship - because it would at least provide some relief to people at risk of being deported. Rubio has not put his plan on paper, but his office describes it as an "alternative" to the Dream Act that would legalize certain young people who came to the United States while they were children. The measure would ...

Expanded Intelligence Effort Targetting Iran Proves There Is No Iranian Atom-Bomb Program April 9th, 2012 • 7:05 AM An expanded intelligence effort, led by the CIA but including the National Security Agency (NSA) and the National Geo-spatial Intelligence Agency (NGA), has given the White House confidence that it will have early warning of any move by Iran to assemble a nuclear bomb, say unnamed officials. Not reported by the Washington Post, but implicit in this is that since the U.S. knows Iran doesn't have a military program, and the U.S. will have plenty of warning if it decides to start one, there is no reason to go to war. The effort includes stealth reconnaissance drones, increased intercepts by the NSA, increased satellite scanning, and a large informant network. "There is confidence that we would see activity indicating that a decision had been made," a senior U.S. official involved in high-level discussions about Iran policy told the Washington Post. "Across the board, our access has been signi ...
The Washington Post babbled again today about Obama inheriting a huge deficit from Bush. Amazingly enough,. a lot of people swallow this nonsense. So once more, a short civics lesson. Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress, and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party. They controlled the budget process for FY 2008 and FY 2009, as well as FY 2010 and FY 2011. In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases. For FY 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY 2009 budgets. And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill ...
