Obama breaches Marine umbrella protocol
- Mike Piccione - THE DAILY CALLER
Sorry, Mister President, but your ignorance or arrogance of protocol (as our Commander-In- Chief) is nothing short of disgusting. Had you known the regulations of each branch of the military of which you are "commander," you would have known that YOU, without prior approval of the head honcho of the Marines, had NO RIGHT to tell that Marine to hold an umbrella over you so that you would not get your head wet. NOT an example of a strong leader -- at least in my estimtion. -- Dale
The commander in chief of the American armed forces forced a violation of Marine Corps regulations, so he wouldn’t get wet.
According to Marine Corps regulation MCO P1020.34F of the Marine Corps Uniform Regulations chapter 3, a male Marine is not allowed to carry an umbrella while in uniform. There is no provision in the Marine Corps uniform regulation guidelines that allows a male Marine to carry an umbrella.
Nevertheless, during a press conference under a light drizzle with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan Thursday, President Obama allowed the First Head to be protected from the elements by an umbrella held by a male Marine corporal.
Obama, IRS and Eric Holder: The Axis of Hear No Evil, See No Evil
- John Ransom - TOWNHALL.COM
You know the folks who pushed that one law regarding almost 20 percent of the entire economy before they even read the bill? The ones who rushed it into law just to see what was in it? The ones who managed to write a bill, while still not being familiar with what the bill actually did? Yeah, those guys? The Know-Nothings.
Well, they know nothing about a lot of other stuff too. Obama’s one of those guys. So is Eric Holder. So, apparently, is the entire staff at the IRS from the executive offices upward. They are kind of an “Axis of See No Evil, Hear No Evil”.
IRS Withheld Information From Congress
- Todd Beamon - NEWSMAX
||Rep. Paul Ryan said on Friday that the hearing with the ousted head of the Internal Revenue Service on the agency’s targeting of conservative groups made at least one thing clear to legislators. “The one answer we did get, though, is that the IRS withheld information from Congress,” the Wisconsin Republican told Jake Tapper on CNN. “We have many more questions that result from today’s hearing.”|
Congressman gets standing Ovation for nailing IRS chief
- Drew Zahn - WND
A scathing rant aimed at Internal Revenue Service abuses brought a standing ovation at Friday’s House Ways and Means Committee hearing from observers who apparently thought Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Pa., hit the nail on the head. “If you think it’s uncomfortable sitting over there,” Kelly told former IRS Chief Steve Miller as he grilled him over revelations the IRS targeted “tea party” and “patriot” groups for heightened scrutiny on tax-exempt status applications, “you ought to be a private individual when the IRS is across from you asking you questions.
Department of Justice on 'gays': 'Silence will be interpreted as disapproval' ---- Say WHAT??
- Matt Barber - WND
Under President Obama, “justice” is anything but blind. Neither is it deaf. In fact, based on recent revelations, it appears to be watching your every move and listening to your every word. Still, if you happen to be a federal employee, now it’s even listening for your silence.
The only thing this Obama White House seems to generate is scandal. Well, here’s yet another to add to the growing list. In addition to the Benghazi cover-up, IRS targeting of political dissenters and the illegal seizure of media phone records, whistleblowers within DOJ have contacted Liberty Counsel to express grave concerns over this administration’s latest attack on freedom.
Race and violence in the 'Welfare Magnet'

This is worth reading because the percentages and statistics resulting in what we perceive as 'reality' simply make no sense. In spite of that, it "is what it is," and worthy of your reading time. - Dale
2/3 of young men in one Zip Code have been or are incarcerated
Want to guess that the real estate agents stay away from these facts: Half of the housing loans are for investors, 60 subprime lenders are in operation, 90 percent of family income-tax filers are single parents, and 90 percent of the jobs are held by non-residents. That’s all from Milwaukee’s Zip Code 53206, a key component of what’s been described as Wisconsin’s welfare magnet. The details from this neighborhood, and its city, aren’t what you’d find on a chamber of commerce brochure either.
Barack Just Never Around When Bad Things Happen
- Jim Emerson - WESTERN JOURNALISM
During the Benghazi murders, instead of taking charge, Mr. Obama went into hiding, the various military elements having to stand down because the occupant of the White House was afraid to make decisions. During a Senate hearing, then Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta testified that neither Obama nor anyone else from the White House had contacted the Defense Department or the Pentagon during the attack to find out what was going on. This is not the behavior of a leader, but of a coward. As always, Obama pleads ignorance to distance himself from anything that may make him look bad. He has already claimed to know nothing of the IRS targeting of conservative groups or the tapping of AP phone lines. Having the FBI investigate these events will enable the president to duck any questions because there is an “ongoing investigation.”

Obama's Emptiest Benghazi Talking Point
- Michelle Malkin - TOWNHALL.COM
On Sept. 12, 2012, President Barack Obama vowed to "bring to justice" the perpetrators of the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya. On Oct. 26, 2012, Obama said his "biggest priority" was bringing the "folks" in Libya responsible for murdering four Americans to "justice." Tick, tock, tick, tock.
While White House press secretary Jay Carney sneers at the GOP's "obsession" with what went wrong at the besieged Libyan consulate, Obama continues to ply his emptiest talking point. On May 13, 2013, more than eight months after the bloody disaster, Obama snippily reminded reporters that he had told us all back in September that "we would find out what happened, we would make sure that it did not happen again, and we would make sure that we held accountable those who had perpetrated this terrible crime."

Anti-Obama filmmaker charges harassment by IRS

Suspects feds gave bank information to 'leftist journalist'
NEW YORK – Amid disclosures of IRS harassment of conservatives, the maker of the controversial film “Dreams from My Real Father” now suspects he was the victim of tag-team harassment by the IRS and a leftist journalist apparently working in concert to intimidate him and his investors.
WND previously reported director Joel Gilbert (pictured at right) was concerned a journalist investigating his documentary used information that could only have been obtained by hacking into his company’s bank account.
