Toads of Corruption - Valerie Jarrett Key Player in Fast and Furious Cover-Up After Holder Lied to Congress

Valerie Jarrett Key Player in Fast and Furious Cover-Up After Holder Lied to Congress - Judicial Watch

OCTOBER 24, 2014



… Obama’s trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, was a key player in the effort to cover up that Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress about the Fast and Furious scandal, according to public records obtained by Judicial Watch.
The information is part of a Department of Justice (DOJ) “Vaughn index” detailing records about the gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious. JW had to sue the agency for the records after the Obama administration failed to provide them under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). A federal court ordered the DOJ to provide the records over the agency’s objections. Yesterday JW reported on the broad information in the records, including that Obama asserted executive privilege for Holder’s wife as part of the administration’s efforts to cover up the scandal.
Practically lost in the 1,000-plus pages of records is an index that shows Jarrett was brought in to manage the fact that Holder lied to Congress after the story about the disastrous gun-running operation broke in the media. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) ran the once-secret program that allowed guns from the U.S. to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to drug cartels. Instead, federal law enforcement officers lost track of hundreds of weapons which have been used in an unknown number of crimes, including the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona.
The files received by JW include three electronic mails between Holder and Jarrett and one from former U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke to Jarrett. The e-mails with Holder are all from October 4, 2011, a significant date because, on the evening of October 3rd, Sheryl Attkisson (then at CBS news) released documents ...

Tired of listening to Progressives tell you that the Second Amendment only allows people in militias to keep and bear arms?

Blog: Hillary: Corporations and businesses don't create jobs

October 25, 2014  By Thomas Lifson

Hillary Clinton has gone on the record saying that corporations and businesses don’t create jobs. Apparently, governments and nonprofits are where everyone works. And where they get the taxes and donations to spend is a mystery one best not probe too deeply. Don’t believe me? Just watch

Why worry about American Citizen's Voting when Illegal Aliens Self-Import and vote Democrat?

from the Monkey Cage

"Democracy is the art of running the circus from the monkey cage." -- H.L. Mencken


Could non-citizens decide the November election? - The Washington Post
 October 24, 2014

Could control of the Senate in 2014 be decided by illegal votes cast by non-citizens? Some argue that incidents of voting by non-citizens are so rare as to be inconsequential, with efforts to block fraud a screen for an agenda to prevent poor and minority voters from exercising the franchise, while others define such incidents as a threat to democracy itself. Both sides depend more heavily on anecdotes than data.
In a forthcoming article in the journal Electoral Studies, we bring real data from big social science survey datasets to bear on the question of whether, to what extent, and for whom non-citizens vote in U.S. elections. Most non-citizens do not register, let alone vote. But enough do that their participation can change the outcome of close races.
Our data comes from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study(CCES). Its large number of observations (32,800 in 2008 and 55,400 in 2010) provide sufficient samples of the non-immigrant sub-population, with 339 non-citizen respondents in 2008 and 489 in 2010. For the 2008 CCES, we also attempted to match respondents to voter files so that we could verify whether they actually voted.
How many non-citizens participate in U.S. elections? More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote. Furthermore, some of these non-citizens voted. Our best guess, based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, is that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010. …

It has Really Happened Now - Our Enemy President and Government - U.S. Health Authorities Concealing Number of Suspected Ebola Victims From Public

All this mess was unnecessary, but for the PC Fool in the White House! All he had to do was restrict travel to and from West Africa, close the boarders and quarantine the medical agents who had worked there. But NO! Now we are in another fine mess! m/r

New York, New Jersey Set Up Mandatory Quarantine Requirement Amid Ebola Threat

Christie: New Policy Has Already Been Used At Newark Liberty International Airport
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — In the wake of the first confirmed Ebola virus case in New York City, the states of New York and New Jersey have set up a new screening system that goes above and beyond the guidelines already set up by federal officials.
As CBS 2’s Alice Gainer reported, no other states have yet set up increased screening procedures for Ebola.
“We believe it’s appropriate to increase the current screening procedures from people coming from affected countries from the current (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention screening procedures),” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Friday afternoon. “We believe it within the State of New York and the State of New Jersey’s legal rights.”

Obama Asserts Fast and Furious Executive Privilege Claim for Holder’s Wife - Judicial Watch

OCTOBER 23, 2014 

Judicial Watch announced today that it received from the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) a “Vaughnindex” detailing records about the Operation Fast and Furious scandal.  The index was forced out of the Obama administration thanks to JW’s June 2012 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and subsequentSeptember 2012 FOIA lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice (No. 1:12-cv-01510)).  A federal court had ordered the production over the objections of the Obama Justice Department.
The document details the Attorney General Holder’s personal involvement in managing the Justice Department’s strategy on media and Congressional investigations into the Fast and Furious scandal.  Notably, the document discloses that emails between Attorney General Holder and his wife Sharon Malone – as well as his mother – are being withheld under an extraordinary claim of executive privilege as well as a dubious claim of deliberative process privilege under the Freedom of Information Act.  The “First Lady of the Justice Department” is a physician and not a government employee.
This is the first time that the Obama administration has provided a detailed listing of all records being withheld from Congress and the American people about the deadly Fast and Furious gun running scandal. The 1307-page “draft” Vaughn index was emailed to Judicial Watch at 8:34 p.m. last night, a few hours before a federal court-ordered deadline.  In its cover letter, the Department of Justice asserts that all of the responsive records described in the index are “subject to the assertion of executive privilege.”

See if you can enumerate all his scandals!

And Now EBOLA in NYC!

Barack Obama, Bewildered Bystander | National Review Online

By Charles Krauthammer  10-23-14

He’s angry, but not angry enough to fix what’s wrong.

The president is upset. Very upset. Frustrated and angry. Seething about the government’s handling of Ebola, said the front-page headline in the New York Times last Saturday.
There’s only one problem with this pose, so obligingly transcribed for him by the Times. It’s his government. He’s president. Has been for almost six years. Yet Barack Obama reflexively insists on playing the shocked outsider when something goes wrong within his own administration.
IRS? “It’s inexcusable, and Americans are right to be angry about it, and I am angry about it,” he thundered in May 2013, when the story broke of the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. “I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency, but especially in the IRS.”
Except that within nine months, Obama had grown far more tolerant, retroactively declaring this to be a phony scandal without “a smidgen of corruption.”
Obamacare rollout? “Nobody is more frustrated by that than I am,” said an aggrieved Obama about the botching of the central element of his signature legislative achievement. “Nobody is madder than me.” 
Veterans Affairs scandal? …

Another Hipster Doofus: President Doofus

Articles: President Doofus

By Monty Pelerin 10-22-14

Doofus is an unusual but appropriate appellation for President Barack Hussein Obama.

What Is A Doofus?
"Doofus" is slang referring to a boob, for which the thesaurus lists the following synonyms -- idiot, nitwit, dunce, fathead, fool, goof, goon, imbecile, jerk.

Some might argue that these synonyms may be inapplicable. Perhaps, but a diminishing percentage would argue that none are applicable. Such a characterization of the president five years ago might have seemed radical or harsh. Even the few who felt that way are probably surprised at the incomparable ineptness of Obama and his Administration.

Our current situation should not surprise. There is a reason that any properly run organization requires qualifications for each job.  Experience matters. No one hires a car mechanic to perform brain surgery. Why should it be a surprise when a "community organizer" is incapable of performing successfully as president?

What Happens When A Doofus Is Elected?

In comparison to Obama, the hapless Jimmy Carter looks like Jack Welch or Peter Drucker, both legendary in the field of management. Our unfortunate real-life version of Chauncy Gardner is increasingly seen as Chance the Gardener, although one wonders whether he would do any better in that position.   

All of this may be good for Jimmy Carter but terrible for the country!  ...
