Latest Liberal Hypocrisy Alert of the this second: Swiss Bank Accounts are evil. But have fundraisers IN Switzerland are Gold. 🙂
And then there is this one:
Here’s the allegation:
Instead of being asked to account for ridiculous statements from his campaign staff and the outrageous claims of Harry Reid, President Obama is using hand-picked local journalists and requiring them to ask about the budget deal he signed with Republicans a year ago which requires automatic budget cuts called sequestration in the event no official budget is signed. Many of these cuts will be to the military, something that the Obama White House is keen on letting swing state voters know about.
Dial back a few months, and you’ll find another example resembling this practice. The Obama White House was ready to announce a new position on gay marriage. It called ABC News and asked them to send Robin Roberts on down. OK! came the answer. Most of journalism was just fine with the setup…
Now this. Thing is, turning to local reporters with a wink-wink deal that they ask a particular question is sound politics. We’ll see it for decades and decades to come. It’s hard to argue that local reporters shouldn’t get a turn with the president, even though they don’t live the issues day in and day out the way the White House press corps does. The trouble comes when the outreach to local reporters and Entertainment Tonights comes at the same time that the president is stingy with full-blown news conferences. (WP)
So only talk to the already friendly who are loaded with questions that will only make you look good and avoid anyone who might ask you a real question.
Meanwhile, all you do with the opposition is “gotcha” and smear questions.
Gee, sounds like “Vote for me, Man that other guy is a real asshole!” while covering up what an asshole you really are, and the media is in on it. What a stroke of luck for you! 🙂
Reports that TSA officers showed up alongside Secret Service and the local Sumter County Sheriff’s Office, and proceeded to rifle through bags and conduct pat down searches.
Airport security style checkpoints and inspection procedures are already in place at bus terminals , train stations , and are rapidly being expanded to the streets of America.
Agents have even been spotted roaming around at public events such as sports games and music concerts, and even at high school proms . (KFYI)
The TSA has also announced its intention to expand the VIPR program to include roadside inspections of commercial vehicles, setting up a network of internal checkpoints and rolling out security procedures already active in airports, bus terminals and subway stations to roads and highways across the United States.
These internal checkpoints, run by Homeland Security, the Department of Transportation, and the TSA, involve trucks being scanned with backscatter x-ray devices in the name of “safety” and “counter terrorism”.
Homeland Security is also developing technology to be used at “security events” which purports to monitor “malintent” on behalf of an individual who passes through a checkpoint.
If people think they can avoid the TSA by staying away from airports, they’re going to be in for a rude awakening. TSA is clearly engaged in a total takeover of society and plans to have its agents searching, patting down, scanning and harassing Americans at all levels of society, not just at transport hubs but at public events, in the street and on highways and roads across the country.
The implementation of ‘Checkpoint USA’, where citizens are routinely stopped, searched and radiated by federal VIPER teams is further evidence of how America is crumbling into a Soviet-style police state where the presumption of innocent until proven guilty is abolished and the 4th amendment eviscerated.

Illegal immigrants could receive more than $7 billion this year in federal tax credits, according to one estimate, thanks to a loophole in the law that allows people not authorized to work to reap the government payments with no questions asked.
Immigrants could receive roughly $7.4 billion through a provision known as the Additional Child Tax Credit. That’s more than quadruple what the payout was four years ago, but the payments have been steadily increasing over the past decade.
Though illegal immigrants are prohibited from receiving similar tax credits, a quirk in the law allows them to qualify for the child tax credit. And it’s a “refundable” credit, meaning recipients can reap the money — with average checks totaling about $1,800 — even if they’ve paid no taxes.
Illegal immigrants can qualify because even people not authorized to work in the U.S. are supposed to file returns with the IRS. If they don’t have a Social Security number, they are provided what’s known as an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number in order to file returns.
And those filers are not excluded from claiming the Additional Child Tax Credit, which is offered to some families with children under 17 years old. (KFYI)
