Nothing to See Here

More Liberal “transparency” for ya.
Mind you it show what they are transparent about.
The Agenda is The Agenda.
Don’t let any nasty facts get in the way of the Coronation of Queen Hillary I.

Department of Justice officials filed a motion in federal court late Wednesday seeking a 27-month delay in producing correspondence between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s four top aides and officials with the Clinton Foundation and Teneo Holdings, a closely allied public relations firm that Bill Clinton helped launch.

If the court permits the delay, the public won’t be able to read the communications until October 2018, about 22 months into her prospective first term as President. The four senior Clinton aides involved were Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Michael Fuchs, Ambassador-At-Large Melanne Verveer, Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, and Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin.

The State Department originally estimated that 6,000 emails and other documents were exchanged by the aides with the Clinton Foundation. But a series of “errors” the department told the court about Wednesday evening now mean the total has grown to “34,116 potentially responsive documents.”

During Clinton’s four years as America’s chief foreign diplomat, her aides communicated with officials at the Clinton Foundation and Teneo Holdings where Bill Clinton was formerly both a client and paid consultant, on the average of  700 times each month, according to the Justice Department filing.

 

David N. Bossie, president of Citizens United, which requested the documents under the Freedom of Information Act, called the delay “totally unacceptable” and charged that “the State Department is using taxpayer dollars to protect their candidate, Hillary Clinton.”

“The American people have a right to see these emails before the election,” Bossie told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras, a President Obama-appointed judge, had previously ordered the State Department to release the requested documents by July 21. But Department of Justice lawyers informed Contreras Wednesday night that “the [State] department discovered errors in the manner in which the searches had been conducted in order to capture documents potentially responsive to plaintiff’s request.” The motion was filed by Justice Department attorney Joseph Borson on behalf of the State Department.

Borson also provided new details about how few resources the State Department has devoted to answering 106 separate Freedom of Information Act requests that are pending before it, many of them ordered by federal judges. Only 71 “part-time” retired foreign service officers are being used to review all of the pending FOIA requests.

The State Department also revealed that despite the large number of requests seeking information about Secretary Clinton’s ties to the Clinton Foundation over the last two years, the Obama administration has not requested additional funds for reviewers.

The amount budgeted has remained at about $16 million over the last several years, according to Eric Stein, co-director of the State Department Office of Information Programs and Services. The department claims with its current workforce, it would only be able to release 500 documents each month.

The FBI has a “public corruption” probe underway investigating whether Clinton used her position to benefit or recruit donors to the Clinton Foundation.

Bossie told TheDCNF that “the conflicts of interest that were made possible by the activities of Hillary Clinton’s State Department in tandem with the Clinton Foundation are of significant importance to the public and the law enforcement community.”

In addition to the Clinton Foundation, Citizens United requested communications between the four aides and Teneo Holdings, the firm created by Doug Band, Bill Clinton’s personal aide in the White House and thereafter as a former chief executive. The former President was a paid consultant to Teneo until 2012.

Huma Abedin simultaneously served as an employee for both Teneo and as deputy chief of staff to Clinton at the State Department in 2012, an issue which Congress has raised as a key conflict of interest.

Mills, Clinton’s chief of staff also worked at the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative while she served at the State Department.

Bait ‘n Switch

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

Liberals want to feed for lifetime and Millennials are the price catch.

“Personally I am very fond of strawberries and cream, but I have found that for some strange reason, fish prefer worms. So when I went fishing, I didn’t think about what I wanted. I thought about what they wanted. I didn’t bait the hook with strawberries and cream. Rather, I dangled a worm or grasshopper in front of the fish and said: “Wouldn’t you like to have that?”
Why not use the same common sense when fishing for people?”– Dale Carnegie

And the Liberals are fishing…

Giving Millennials discounts on Lyft rides is the newest attempt to bait them into subsidizing a substandard healthcare system.

Last Tuesday, federal health officials pronounced a sneaky plan to scrutinize the tax records of young people ages 18-34 and compile a list of those who paid the penalty rather than signing up for Obamacare.

Federal officials admitted they plan to use this list to target Millennials with emails and enticements to pressure them into joining Obamacare. Sweeteners to be dangled like bait in front of Millennials include reduced fares with the hipster rideshare service known as Lyft.

“Insurance companies need robust enrollment of healthy young people to balance the costs of caring for older, sicker adults, who signed up in droves for insurance under so-called Obamacare,” reports the Associated Press.

Thanks to Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, we now know this administration relied on the so-called “stupidity of the American voter” and a “lack of transparency” to pass the Affordable Care Act.

I don’t care what Jonathan Gruber thinks. My Millennial peers and I are not mindless fish that will gobble up hooks as long as they hold juicy worms.

Millennials are being bullied into shouldering the burden of crony healthcare reform. Instead of increasing affordability, the Affordable Healthcare Act raised premiums and penalties for young people. The law also dramatically reduced our healthcare options.

Monthly healthcare premiums jumped 30 percent for young women and 73 percent for young men between 2013 and 2014 alone. Which helps explain why some 12.7 million Millennials are still uninsured—and Millennials now comprise 45 percent of all taxpayers paying a penalty or claiming an exemption—up from 30 percent of all taxpayers in 2014.

Young and healthy—and also unemployed, underemployed, or in massive college debt—millions of Millennials chose to pay the $325 penalty in 2015 rather than overpay for insurance they wouldn’t use.

In 2016, the penalty for not having health insurance increases to $695. Unfortunately, many Millennials don’t realize that they can legally avoid paying the penalty and get a form of emergency health protection by being a good-standing member of a healthcare sharing ministry. (I’ve done so for the past two years.) We all need to help educate Millennials so they know they have legitimate alternatives to being used as political pawns.

I explain in my chapter titled “Young and Hellthy,” how presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton conjured up Hillarycare long before Obama invented Obamacare. Her version of Obamacare—which she pushed as first lady while her husband Bill was president—flopped because drug companies launched a major ad campaign to fight the legislation. Voters had a chance to see what was in Hillarycare before it passed, and consequently it didn’t pass.

In contrast, as Jonathan Gruber conceded, President Obama succeeded in passing Obamacare through a lack of transparency. Obama’s administration claimed to be improving healthcare for Americans while working behind closed doors to broker deals with Big Pharma—regardless of whether doing so would raise healthcare premiums and decrease the quality of patient care. 

“British and Canadian healthcare systems work great, why are you worried?” someone might counter. Actually, socialized healthcare doesn’t work so well for Brits or Canadians. 3.4 million Brits were on medical waiting lists as of the summer of 2015—up 36 percent from 2010—according to Sally Pipes, president of the Pacific Research Institute.

No wonder Brits eagerly voted to exit the EU last week! They’re tired of a broken and corrupt political system. Also according to Pipes, every year at least 52,000 Canadians come to the United States for medical treatment and Canadians wait for care “97 percent longer than they did in 1993.”

Progressives need to rethink their regressive healthcare schemes. Meanwhile, my Millennial friends, don’t take the bait.

We have a nice new shiny thing…:)

Shameless

Gee, it took less time than I thought.

Now to the “Don’t do as I do, do as I say” Liberal category.

Apparently, Liberals are mad that Omar Mateen was a Muslim, and he dared to proclaim he was a ‘radical’ muslim to boot. Then the most evil being on Earth (according to Liberals of the moment) supplanting the Devil himself, George W Bush, dared to rub their collective faces in it.

That being Donald Trump.

That galls them no end.

The presumptive Republican nominee tweeted that Omar Mateen’s slaughter of 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, proves he was right about the threat of Muslim terrorists and that the ban he proposed on all Muslims entering the country—something he later referred to as a suggestion—would have somehow prevented Mateen (a U.S. citizen) from committing this atrocity.

Trump is also apparently calling on President Obama to resign for not saying the three magic words “radical Islamic terrorism,” nevermind the fact that Obama called it an “attack on all of us.” lynch3

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch has told the gay community “we stand with you” and insisted that investigators are continuing to follow leads on the gunman and mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub…

She wouldn’t give specifics about the investigation or a possible motive. She said “people often act out of more than one motivation” and called the June 12 massacre at the gay club “clearly an act of terror and an act of hate.” She added that a motive may never be known. (WFTV)

Of course not. How could we ever know his real motive? Just because Mateen explained exactly why he did it to anybody who’d listen, that doesn’t mean it’s really why he did it.

So Mateen claim proclaim it to the heavens above and depths below.

But Liberals will refuse to admit to it. Because we all know that they are NEVER wrong. It’s always someone else’s fault. They are the vastly superior form of Life on this planet and you should bow down on your knees and grovel at their toes because you are so not worthy of their enlightenment.

So if reality is wrong, in their view, then you are wrong to insist that it is wrong.

In this case, Donald Trump.

He was right. And that galls them.

But what galls them much more is that he’s crowing about it.

NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE!!  someone once said.:)

After all, it’s not like the Democrats haven’t been abusing their power for their own agenda.

john lewis

The childish sit-in, with it’s ARMED Security, catered meals and fundraising appeals was childish enough, don’t you think?

But remember, kiddies, you can’t do as they do! Just do as they say!

what they mean

So don’t ever use a Crisis for your own gain, unless you’re already a Liberal.:)

For Trump, mass murder and tragedy are often opportunities to plug a political belief or flaunt the fact that he got a hasty prediction right.

Yeah, and those Gun Control/Strip Due Process Bills Dem-Boys?…:)

Not only is Trump rushing to profit politically from Orlando; he is also bulldozing the truth to do it.

This would be laughable, if I didn’t know that the earnest little Liberal who wrote it was 100% serious about his outrage that a non-Liberal politicians was taking political advantage of a tragedy.

How dare you use our playbook against us! That’s not “fair”!!:)

Waaaahh!!! Make him stop!

Sowell Fraud

Last week the Supreme Court of the United States voted that President Obama exceeded his authority when he granted exemptions from the immigration laws passed by Congress.

But the Supreme Court also exceeded its own authority by granting the University of Texas an exemption from the Constitution’s requirement of “equal protection of the laws,” by voting that racial preferences for student admissions were legal.

Supreme Court decisions in affirmative action cases are the longest running fraud since the 1896 decision upholding racial segregation laws in the Jim Crow South, on grounds that “separate but equal” facilities were consistent with the Constitution. Everybody knew that those facilities were separate but by no means equal. Nevertheless, this charade lasted until 1954.

The Supreme Court’s affirmative action cases have now lasted since 1974 when, in the case of “DeFunis v. Odegaard,” the Court voted 5 to 4 that this particular case was moot, which spared the justices from having to vote on its merits.

While the 1896 “separate but equal” decision lasted 58 years, the Supreme Court’s affirmative action cases have now had 42 years of evasion, sophistry and fraud, with no end in sight.

One sign of the erosion of principles over the years is that even one of the Court’s most liberal judicial activists, Justice William O. Douglas, could not stomach affirmative action in 1974, and voted to condemn it, rather than declare the issue moot.

But now, in 2016, the supposedly conservative Justice Anthony Kennedy voted to uphold the University of Texas’ racial preferences. Perhaps the atmosphere inside the Washington Beltway wears down opposition to affirmative action, much as water can eventually wear down rock and create the Grand Canyon.

We have heard much this year about the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of the great Justice Antonin Scalia — and rightly so. But there are two vacancies on the Supreme Court. The other vacancy is Anthony Kennedy.

The human tragedy, amid all the legal evasions and frauds is that, while many laws and policies sacrifice some people for the sake of other people, affirmative action manages to harm blacks, whites, Asians and others, even if in different ways.

Students who are kept out of a college because other students are admitted instead, under racial quotas, obviously lose opportunities they would otherwise have had.

But minority students admitted to institutions whose academic standards they do not meet are all too often needlessly turned into failures, even when they have the prerequisites for success in some other institution whose normal standards they do meet.

When black students who scored at the 90th percentile in math were admitted to M.I.T., where the other students scored at the 99th percentile, a significant number of black students failed to graduate there, even though they could have graduated with honors at most other academic institutions.

We do not have so many students with that kind of ability that we can afford to sacrifice them on the altar to political correctness.

Such negative consequences of mismatching minority students with institutions, for the sake of racial body count, have been documented in a number of studies, most notably “Mismatch,” a book by Richard Sander and Stuart Taylor, Jr., whose sub-title is: “How Affirmative Action Hurts Students It’s Intended to Help, and Why Universities Won’t Admit It.”

When racial preferences in student admissions in the University of California system were banned, the number of black and Hispanic students in the system declined slightly, but the number actually graduating rose substantially. So did the number graduating with degrees in tough subjects like math, science and engineering.

But hard facts carry no such weight among politicians as magic words like “diversity” — a word repeated endlessly, without one speck of evidence to back up its sweeping claims of benefits. It too is part of the Supreme Court fraud, going back to a 1978 decision that seemingly banned racial quotas — unless the word “diversity” was used instead of “quotas.”

Seeming to ban racial preferences, while letting them continue under another name, was clever politically. But the last thing we need in Washington are nine more politicians, wearing judicial robes.

Bait and Hook

I don’t care what Jonathan Gruber thinks. My Millennial peers and I are not mindless fish that will gobble up hooks as long as they hold juicy worms.

I diasagree. I think that Liberals have trained them for it. That’s why they cynically want to use this method to appeal to their greed.

Millennials are being bullied into shouldering the burden of crony healthcare reform.

Yes, they are. They are also being told that they have to vote for the “woman” for President because the evil rich white male is a bad.

And the Sheeple are following it.

Instead of increasing affordability, the Affordable Healthcare Act raised premiums and penalties for young people. The law also dramatically reduced our healthcare options.

It was NEVER about affordability. It was about CONTROL. Still is.

Monthly healthcare premiums jumped 30 percent for young women and 73 percent for young men between 2013 and 2014 alone. Which helps explain why some 12.7 million Millennials are still uninsured—and Millennials now comprise 45 percent of all taxpayers paying a penalty or claiming an exemption—up from 30 percent of all taxpayers in 2014.

You assume The Democrats actually care…The Agenda is The Agenda.

Young and healthy—and also unemployed, underemployed, or in massive college debt—millions of Millennials chose to pay the $325 penalty in 2015 rather than overpay for insurance they wouldn’t use.

But that’s not their fault, according to The Left. That’s the fault of evil capitalists. Your a “victim”. it’s not “fair”.

Of course it’s not. But the Democrats are hardly going to tell their sheeple that they are the Wolf in their own hen house.

In 2016, the penalty for not having health insurance increases to $695. Unfortunately, many Millennials don’t realize that they can legally avoid paying the penalty and get a form of emergency health protection by being a good-standing member of a healthcare sharing ministry. (I’ve done so for the past two years.) We all need to help educate Millennials so they know they have legitimate alternatives to being used as political pawns.

The Democrats don’t want you to think so.Neither does the Liberal Media or Education Establishment that has a vested political interest in making sure you’re as narcissistic as possible.

I explain in my chapter titled “Young and Hellthy,” how presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton conjured up Hillarycare long before Obama invented Obamacare. Her version of Obamacare—which she pushed as first lady while her husband Bill was president—flopped because drug companies launched a major ad campaign to fight the legislation. Voters had a chance to see what was in Hillarycare before it passed, and consequently it didn’t pass.

But yet, here it comes again and Millenials are “Excited” by it or “scared” of Trump (same difference to Democrats).

They are a means to an end. Period.

In contrast, as Jonathan Gruber conceded, President Obama succeeded in passing Obamacare through a lack of transparency. Obama’s administration claimed to be improving healthcare for Americans while working behind closed doors to broker deals with Big Pharma—regardless of whether doing so would raise healthcare premiums and decrease the quality of patient care. 

They didn’t care. They Agenda was The Agenda. Then end justifies the means. Still does, to them.

Progressive will not re-think anything. They aren’t capable of that. They have Sanctimony, Ego, Narcissism, and tenacity of an Pit Bull with it’s jaws locked around your throat on their side. They see no reason to change there Holy Mission.

Progressive Liberals have faith in their own Egos. They possibly be wrong. About anything. Ever.

The Truth is Not Out There

The Truth Has Been (Omitted)

By Ben Shapiro | June 23, 2016 | 9:25 AM EDT

President Barack Hussein Obama (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)

Barack Obama is a dramatic failure.

His economy has been a slow-motion train wreck. His domestic policy has driven racial antagonism to renewed heights and divided Americans from each other along lines of religion and sexual orientation. On foreign policy he has set the world aflame in the name of pretty, meaningless verbiage and a less hegemonic America.

But there’s good news: At least he controls the information flow.

This week, Attorney General Loretta Lynch told Americans to believe her rather than their own lying eyes. First, she openly admitted that the FBI would censor the 911 phone call of the jihadi Omar Mateen who murdered 49 Americans at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. The FBI, she said, would remove explicit references to ISIS, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Islam.

The resulting transcript was a masterpiece of hilarious redaction. Here’s just a taste: “In the name of God the Merciful, the beneficial (in Arabic) … Praise be to God, and prayers as well as peace be upon the prophet of (in Arabic). I let you know, I’m in Orlando and I did the shootings. … My name is I pledge of allegiance to (omitted). … I pledge allegiance to (omitted), may God protect him (in Arabic) on behalf (omitted).”

This memory holing would make George Orwell cry. In this iteration, Allah becomes God (See, Islam is just like Judaism and Christianity!), but we can’t mention terrorist groups and their leaders. In fact, more than a week after the attack, Lynch told the press she didn’t know the jihadi’s motivation — a motivation clearly stated in the transcript she released.

Insanity.

But this is not unusual for the Obama administration. We know that in the run-up to the Iran deal the Obama administration simply altered reality to fit its narrative: It had fiction writer and deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes cook up an account where negotiations with the terror state began only after the accession of “moderate” President Hassan Rouhani. Never mind that Obama and company had been negotiating with the mullahs behind the scenes for years before that. The narrative had to be falsified and upheld. When the State Department was forced to admit those lies in a press conference, the White House conveniently chopped out that section of the taped conference for public release.

We also know that the Obama administration lied openly about Obamacare. It knew from the beginning that you couldn’t keep your doctor or your plan. It simply hid that fact for years. We know that the Obama State Department sliced out a section of transcript mentioning radical Islam when French President Francois Hollande visited the United States.

He who controls the information flow controls reality.

And the Obama administration is already rewriting reality for the historians of decades hence. We won’t find out where they hid most of the political bodies until too late — just as we won’t find out what Clinton hid in her private server until far too late.

This is why a government must not be trusted with massive power. Politicians have every incentive not just to lie in the present but to lie with an eye toward the future. The more power they have over us, the more power they have over the reality we see — and the more they think they can get away with manipulating that reality.

Brexit Baby!

We are Outta Here!  say Britain.

Global Economy/”immigrant” migration beware.:)

And they have the arrogance of King Obama to thank for it. Like his hysterical Historical predecessor King George III he helped make Britons want to break off and reform their own country (Again!).

UPDATE: UKIP’s Nigel Farage said that Obama getting involved in the Brexit referendum gave the “Leave” camp a big boost (via The Hill):

“Threatening people too much insults their intelligence,” the United Kingdom Independence Party head said.“A lot of people in Britain said, ‘How dare the American president come here and tell us what to do?’ ” Farage continued on Sirius XM’s “Breitbart News Daily,” citing Obama’s U.K. trip in April.

“It backfired. We got an Obama-Brexit bounce, because people do not want foreign leaders telling them how to think and vote.”

But that’s what our King does best, or at most often. :)He is after all Homo Superior Liberalis, that superior form of life that wants to run the Us and then the UN and thus run the World as well because they are just so vastly superior to us mere mortals in every conceivable way (at least that their ego can conceive).***Former Conservative MP Louise Mensch cited President Obama sticking his beak in a British issue over the then-looming vote over whether the nation would remain in the European Union. Yesterday Britain made their choice known: they want out. And Mensch noted that once Obama decided to overreach and tell British voters that they should remain in the EU, support for the Leave camp increased. In the end, it seems to have been a contributing factor in the UK’s decision to say goodbye to the massive political project, long criticized, among other things, for usurping sovereignty among its member nations.

And Obama is an expert in usurping power.:)

That point was referenced during the coverage of the vote last night by Fox Business’ Stuart Varney, who said that President Obama planned on calling Prime Minister David Cameron at some point today over the results, quipping that he’s probably going to apologize for “ruining the vote.”

In short, one could argue that Obama stepped in it—and it’s not the first time the president’s mouth has cost him or his allies politically. This is one of many failures brought on by Obama’s arrogance that his learned diction can sway minds. It certainly hasn’t worked on the Russians, who view him (rightly) as a lightweight. That’s how they’re able to buzz our warships with fighter jets and annex Crimea from Ukraine. It’s how Syria is still a mess. It’s how the security concerns over absorbing 10,000 Syrian refugees, some of which could be infiltrated by ISIS, haven’t subsided.

As I mentioned in a previous post on Obama and Brexit, the most thorough takedown of Obama’s false power of speech came from conservative commentator George Will, who said in 2011:

“He [Obama] went to Massachusetts to campaign against Scott Brown; Brown is now a senator. He went to New Jersey to campaign against Chris Christie, who is now governor. He went to Virginia to campaign against Bob McDonnell, who is now governor. He campaigned for the health care plan extensively; it became less popular. He campaigned in 2010 for the Democrats; they were shellacked. He began, in a sense, his presidency flying to Copenhagen to get Chicago the Olympics, Chicago is the first city eliminated. There is no evidence that the man has rhetorical powers that he’s relying on.”

Now, we can add Brexit to the list, and it’s a mighty consequential failure; one that is going to impact a whole generation of British citizens. For Obama, it’s just another failure. For Cameron, it could be the end of his political career.

And it was. That’s King Obama, you did it again.
