More excrement from Chicago, the land of Tony Rezko, Rod Blagojevich, "Father" Pfleger, Bill Ayers, "Reverend" Wright....

....and the two curiously disbarred lawyers, Barack and Michelle Obama.

Funny, how no one has ever asked them why they were both forced to stop practicing law....

Why is that, Barky?

The government is reckless and foolhearty with all their stupid grant programs.They´re all back door ways for leftists to bilk the taxpayer,I´m sure this is just one small example of grant fraud going on across the country.

You can´t put blood in the water and expect a shark to ignore it.Government money in any form is a magnet for leftist criminal types.

Lets see; blacks perpurtrating a fraud upon the government. Gee, that´s unusual. I´m sure her attitude of entitlement had nothing to do with all that vitriol she heard coming from her Marxist father of how she had been put down by the white man. And her observation of the Obama grifters in the White House taking the nation for everything they can with the same entitlement attitude.

While others are tempted to exploit this event to castigate Jeri and her dad, it´s really a story of success. The civil rights movement that finally allowed African-Americans to enter all sorts of previously denied professions also provided equal opportunity in the field of white-collar crime. It´s gratifying to realize that, today, not all African-American criminals wind up on Riker´s Island; many are now accepted at even our toniest prison facilities.

Evidently Jeri is not the brightest chic in the coup. She could have bought a few potted tomato plants, hired a lawyer of the Wright color, and qualified for a Pigford handout many times larger and broken no laws doing it.

The revrum better spend more time pronouncing damn-nation on America and home schooling his daughter on the legal scams and reparations now available to the "oppressed" people.

I left the following comment at Reuters which it apparently didn´t publish:

Beware of all non-profits supported by government grants, even those run by former chiefs of police. And beware of government grant programs.

Reuters seems interested only in Wright´s daughter, but the Illinois state government agency making these grants, the Employment Opportunities Grant Program, is also under investigation by the Feds. The grants awarded by this program are supposed to be for the purpose of diversifying Illinois trade unions by "preparing" women and minorities to become union apprentices. But despite the $19.3 million dollars already awarded, only a small percentage of participants have graduated from these training programs and an even smaller percentage have actually become union apprentices. Besides We Are Our Brother´s Keeper, there are several other grantees under subpoena.

Government jobs training programs, typically operated by private contractors who are quite often minorities, have dismal records of achievement in spite of the billions of taxpayer dollars that have been poured into them over the years. And yet, our president wants to "invest" even more billions in them. It´s almost as though these programs were never really intended to work. It´s almost as though they´re just another scheme to redistribute the nation´s wealth.

We have to remember that there is a relatively small segment of blacks that believe that they are entitled to anything they can get out of "the white man" or the govmint. After, they were once slaves and oppressed. And remember also that they were TAUGHT by the liberal left to think and believe that way. And have you ever noticed at just how expert they are of scamming they system? I have. They have learned by watching the Jessie Jackson´s of the world.

Unaware of the witch hunt carried out by McCarthy’s rainbow-brandishing gay great-grandsons in Silicon Valley, a middle-aged man came forward and cried out in Italian, “Is it just me, or is the gay lobby imposing a dictatorship on us with their so-called scientific experts?” The science to which he referred wasn’t JavaScript, but rather psychology and pediatrics.

The people at Mozilla may yet live to regret their decision in cooperating with the forcing out of Brendan Eich. Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008. Whether or not this will actually end up hurting Mozilla, one wonders whether Mozilla even anticipated the possibility.

On Thursday, Brendan Eich, who has helped develop some of the web’s most important technologies, resigned under pressure as chief executive of Mozilla, the maker of the popular Firefox web browser, just two weeks after taking the job.

John Edwards — who quit his presidential campaign in disgrace when he was caught cheating on his wife — was barred from Bunny Mellon’s funeral by her family. The former US Senator from North Carolina had charmed Rachel Lambert Mellon, known to all as Bunny, into donating $700,000 for his 2008 presidential bid. Prosecutors charged he used some of the money to support his mistress Rielle Hunter, who was then pregnant with his daughter Frances Quinn.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
