There comes a point when one’s government leaders go from being thuggish, to actually being Totalitarian. Don’t look now, but I think we have crossed that line. The question is what combination of reporting and citizen outrage will it take to start removing some of these people from office?
You’ll hear liberal Obama sycophants say that this whole Verizon snooping deal started under Bush (yes….it’s his fault, of course!) But there are differences. BIG ones. The new Obama order covers not only phone calls overseas with the specific goal of counterterrorism surveillance, but all domestic calls by Verizon customers over at least a three-month period. History Lesson: The Crucial Differences Between Bush and Obama’s NSA Phone Surveillance Programs And this: Here is another key difference between the Bush and Obama administration programs. Bush was fully engaged and committed to the war on terror when the NSA programs were first exposed in 2005, four short years after the bloody 9/11 attacks. Obama, by contrast, immediately rejected the war on terror for “workplace violence”/”overseas contingency operations” euphemisms and officially declared last week that America’s war on terror is over.
They’re Naming Names (Shaka to Scott). IRS Officials Naming Names of Those in DC Who Oversaw Targeting “I was essentially a front person, because I had no autonomy or no authority to act on [applications] without Carter Hull’s influence or input,” Elizabeth Hofacre, a Cincinnati agent, said according to transcripts of the interviews between two Cincinnati IRS agents and congressional investigators. According to the Journal, Hull is an an IRS lawyer in Washington, and “closely oversaw her work and suggested some of the questions asked applicants.”
And Since we Need a Little Humor…..
This is Faris Fink (yes, that’s his real name.) He’s the IRS guy who played Spock in the infamous Star Trek video that we paid millions for. It was supposedly a “team building exercise.” Meanwhile, Fink is a Deputy Commissioner of the IRS who apparently knows nothing. Beam them OUT, Scotty!!!!!
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON!!

If you saw the film “Hating Breitbart” you know that James O’Keefe and Andrew Breitbart were close. They were partners in exposing bias and corruption in elected officials, organizations (like ACORN) and the media. With Breitbart gone, who will take up his mantel of being fearless? James O’Keefe. He has already stepped up and is an amazing investigative journalist in his own right. Check out his latest video exposing the hypocrisy of the sponsors of the California “Homeless Bill of Rights.” They epitomize the NIMBY mentality of the nomenklatura.
What could possibly go wrong here????? Obamacare ‘Navigators.’ Another Snitch Brigade? “On Capitol Hill last week, a top Obamacare official told GOP lawmakers that navigators will not be required to undergo background checks. Criminal records are not automatically disqualifying — and that includes identity theft. The federal rule-makers will require online training of a measly 20 hours. Health care regulations watchdog Betsy McCaughey adds that navigators “don’t have to know math or insurance, but rules announced April 5 specify you have to match the race, ethnicity and language preferences of the neighborhood that will be targeted.”
There Are Now Four Investigations Into the IRS Scandal “As The Daily Caller has reported, at least five different IRS offices including Cincinnati, Ohio; Baltimore, Maryland; Chicago, Illinois and El Monte and Laguna Niguel, California improperly targeted conservative nonprofit groups for extra scrutiny between 2010 and 2012.”
SEVERAL OF YOU HAVE ASKED…about the validity of the “payback” statement made by Valeries Jarrett. Did she really claim there would be “hell to pay” for those who opposed Obama in the last election? It appears the statement is from a source of a source, so it’s not on record. But would it surprise you with all that’s been going on? Valerie Jarrett: ‘After We Win This Election It’s Payback Time’
Top Ten Other Scandals Involving Obama. Yes this is satire….but some seem very plausible. My personal favorite is #5: Initially wanted to claim Benghazi attack inspired by Beatles’ song “Helter Skelter.”
Five tries….still no bear…and refuses to pay!!!! Obama’s athletic prowess on display yet again. And he gets smacked down by the chubby guy. Watch til the end.
