With serious and demonstrable charges of administration wrongdoing popping up every day, conservatives are rightfully angry at the desultory treatment they get from the media. At Just One Minute, the poster known as "daddy" summarizes that feeling well: Worth mentioning how the NY Times and the WaPo and Andrea Mitchell and ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN etc, were all so interested in Sarah Palin´s Emails, that they recruited volunteers across the nation to help them pore thru them. Yet when Lisa Jackson specifically uses false email aliases like "Richard Windsor" (unethically and probably illegally) to conduct Government business, and Sebelius today is discovered

Lots of interesting points as per usual. Love how she suggests our side ´leak´ that Palin was seen entering the IRS to talk to Lerner about targeting tea parties, and that Palin was with Obama during Benghazi...all so the media might show interest in the two areas of concern since only Palin or Bush can get them to follow a trail. Mrs Clarice reminded us of the scads of people who flew to Alaska to find dirt on Palin and not one reporter has questioned where Obama was during Benghazi. She also raises the the idea that the release of the snooping program is to derail the major corruption probes.

Don´t forget that one of the tactics for overthrowing a government is to foster mistrust of said gov´t. I don´t think that the originators of the idea were thinking that the government was looking to overthrow itself but if you are looking to "fundamentally change" the type of government then maybe overthrowing yourself is a valid tactic.
Just a thought.

Our system of government is a good one. But individual administrations can abuse the system. Alinsky, of whom Obie and Hill are disciples, was big on tearing down all institutions - including the system of government - and rebuilding from scratch. We just need a change of administration.

Much has been made over the NSA spying programs starting under Bush and being perfectly ´legal´. The fact that Bush and the Courts have sanctioned this should not make anyone feel better about it. This is huge and scary.

The whole obama regime is tarnished with corruption...

The Chicago mob does this kinda thing all day long in our city -- and -- I´m thinking they thought they could do it nationally.

They were wrong...

Now -- what does that say about Chicago?

In re #7, I´m originally from the north side and raised during the Mayor Richard M. Daly dynasty. My dad, WW II vet and a union guy from the IBEW did not have any kind words for the mayor. That´s funny, with Denver as home now, I have the same problem not only with the governor Hickenloooper, but with Denver Mayor Hancock. The political culture here stinks and has come down to Chicago´s levels. Scandals here in Denver? You betcha. As only one example of many, google, "Denver Players Denver Sugar", which never even made it to the Denver media and the local TV reporter who covered it on her own was fired from her job and forbidden to talk about it afterwards.

Leave it to the inimitable Clarice Feldman to do the heavy lifting when a straightforward explanation is needed to make clear an overly complicated hornets’ nest of government chicanery headed by a stone-cold socialist or worse.

I especially appreciate Clarice’s references to Sarah Palin. Despite all the derision in recent years heaped upon the words “Death Panels,” they’re now front and center in our discourse and exceedingly appropriate. Aren’t they, Barack?

Clarice is starting to read like Mark Steyn in spots, which is a good thing. That aside, she did a great job here on this substantive piece.

...various reputable conservative reporters including John Podhoretz, James Taranto, and Andrew McCarthy have asserted there is no scandal in this and it does not involve wiretapping of all of our communications, although most sensible commentators do or, I think, would, concede the administration´s credibility is so low at this point, it is not paranoia to question the possible misuse of this program by Obama and his appointees.

Well, that´s exactly right. By their own behavior, the Administration has crushed whatever trust we had, which wasn´t much to begin with. It isn´t paranoia when people really are out to get you, and every scandal so far has been about our government being out to get conservatives.

I think we sometimes take to lightly the fatal nature of bias in the press. Biased reporting is akin to irrational mathematics. Bias yields reporting just as worthless as lack of rigorous rationality yields mathematics meaningless. The tiniest bit of bias immediately and fatally turns reporting into cheap propaganda. The reporter, having breached trust with the reader with his bias, is reduced to a blathering hack.

Sic transit MSM.

Yes, it´s all true and the LSM could care less. They never will until they´re owned by people like Rupert Murdoch. We can complain about their bias and inattention until the bovines return to chez bovine. If we want to actually solve the problem we´ll have to take them over and put the blighters on notice that it is their job to uncover the truth, wherever the chips may fall. Those who are obviously biased and inattentive can seek other employment.

It seems that the good Clarice is suggesting that the administration is "leaking" these new scandals to take away our attention on the real scandals(Fast & Furious, IRS, Bengahzi, ect.). That´s an old trick that the CIA has used for decades. Get attention on the left hand while the right hand is doing something else. It just doesn´t seem credible to have so much happening at the same time. It has to be to draw attention away to the real problems they face.

It is troubling that Clarice joins McCarthy and others downplaying the NSA ´scandal´. They cling to the idea that the programs have been put into place to defeat evil and support good, without acknowledging that there are those who call good evil and evil good and that they may well have assumed the reigns of power.

This matters to the few of us who actually exercise critical thinking. But let´s face it, we are in the vast minority. The dirty secret is that none of this matters because the lo-fo´s don´t care and/or cannot understand. The dems have succeeded - they have so dumbed-down the population and coerced them with "free stuff" that they are now programmed to go to the polls on Election Day (ideally multiple times) and vote that straight Dem ticket. It matters not that most of these people are so stupid that they cannot even be counted on to vote properly, through absentee ballots, dem "poll watchers" and other means, their vote will always be consistently D. We need to go to Plan B.

Finally got to #18 to find an L-dotter who thinks about the latest scandal the way I do. No American should ever shrug and so "oh well" when they find the givernment has been spying on them relentlessly and storing every bit of information about them as they go about their daily life. It is incredibly alarming. I´d rather have freedom and privacy, than safety.

I can´t help but feel that this is leading to some big crescendo this week.

Lastly, I feel that Benghazi is the worst scandal since 4 Americans tragically died, but do you think the elite ruling class is every going to let the truth be known? Not if they can prevent it, and not if it would deter Shillary from being our next potus. Even though the last is a big ptooey to me.

My point as always is about the commie/fascist tendencies of the American left.
They implement gazillion complicated laws sole purpose of them is to being able to make guilty all of us, but they will prosecute only the ones they hate (yes, hate, lefties hate sane, sensible people). Tea Party groups vs Black panthers and acorn are the examples.
It will get only worse, and we instinctively know it. Imo, the only cure is the conservative mainstream media exposing the shady dealings of the leftists.

The Poverty Hoax
American Thinker, by John Dietrich    Original Article
Posted By: DW626- 4/8/2014 7:54:23 AM     Post Reply
A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran.

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood.

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
