Regardless of how much you despise the thought, it is written. ….”Expecting a different outcome is like standing at that soda machine that gives you diet ginger ale regardless of which button you push”… The plan was broadly outlined in October of 2013.

    Christopher Soghoian THE SPIES WE TRUST: THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT SURVEILLANCE Telecommunications carriers and service providers now play an essential role in fa- cilitating modern surveillance by law enforcement agencies. The police merely select the individuals to be monitored, while the actual surveillance is performed by third parties: often the same email providers, search engines and telephone companies to whom con- sumers have entrusted their private data. Assisting Big Brother has become a routine part of business. While communications surveillance is widespread, the official government reports barely scratch the surface. As such, the true scale of law...
  • Would Trump get more votes than Jeb in a 3-candidate race against Clinton unlike 1992?

    07/13/2015 3:15:51 AM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 31 replies
    If Jeb and Trump are both general election candidates I think it would end up like the 2010 Colorado Gubernatorial rather than the 1992 Presidential. I think Trump would get twice as many votes as Jeb. Tancredo almost made the Colorado GOP a third party. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colorado_gubernatorial_election,_2010 DEM 51.01% CONST 36.43% REPUB 11.13% https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election,_1992 DEM 43.0% REPUB 37.5% INDEP 18.9% I think this is a scenario that would embarass the Priebus and the clowns at Fox News.

Every day that that the "party of slavery" and "Anti-Civil Rights" party exists is a painful reminder of decades of division, terror, injustice, and institutional racism that were forced on the United States of America. This party judged men and women based on the color of their skin and not the content of their character. Evil wins (#EvilWins) as long as this political party functions. Additionally, the democratic party logo, the donkey, is painful reminder...

Mary Howard, the IRS’s director of privacy, governmental liaison and disclosure division, told the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Wednesday she never saw any of the information requests because the requests were forwarded to the special committee.

    The 1968 Democratic presidential primary is rightly remembered as a famous mess culminating in bloodshed. It seemed likely that the unpopular President Lyndon Johnson would suffer a great embarrassment or even a primary loss after Robert Kennedy entered the race, prompting him to declare that he would neither seek nor accept his party’s nomination for another term. The Kennedy surge was cut short when he was shot and killed in a California hotel. The stage appeared set for a victory by the anti-war candidate Eugene McCarthy until George McGovern entered the race in late spring. The two fought a bitter...

In litigation filed in 2013 by conservative organizations targeted by Lerner and her colleagues at the IRS, a federal judge granted a motion to compel and ordered the IRS to produce the names of the 298 targeted organizations identified by the IRS for the Treasury Inspector General. In 2013,...

The former sheriff and his wife do not have health insurance and started a GoFundMe campaign to solicit donations from family and friends to cover the costs of their medical care. "Because they are self-employed, they have no medical insurance and are in desperate need of our assistance," reads a note on Mack's personal website.

The White House, Brazile said when she came to meet with Simas, has got to focus for the next two years on getting the party into better shape, and Obama’s the best and most effective person to get out the message.

They will take part in the temporary city that is Burning Man, and will light a giant wooden man aflame. Despite all of this, Burning Man has somehow gotten a reputation as a "green" event. But that is simply not the case. Make no mistake: Burning Man is bad for the environment.

To Democrats in Congress who have worked with Mr. Obama, the indifference conveyed to Mr. Reid, one of the president’s most indispensable supporters, was frustratingly familiar. In one sense, Mr. Obama’s response was a reminder of what made him such an appealing figure in the first place: his almost innate aversion to the partisan squabbles that have left Americans so jaded and disgruntled with their political system. But nearly six years into his term, with his popularity at the lowest of his...

    Not even a smidgen of corruption. After 3 years, 2 months, and 10 days; after thousands of man-hours, after tens of thousands of dollars in legal and accounting fees – the IRS called Jenny Beth Martin of the Tea Party Patriots to inform her that the conservative 501(c)(4) group was given tax-exempt status. This was just hours before her testimony today before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Subcommittee on the IRS targeting scandal.

    Every year my local County Republican Committee does a "Lincoln Day Dinner" as a fundraiser to replenish our coffers. Monies used to maintain our headquarters, (which is rent free)maintain a web site, phone, printed material, etc... The problem we are experiencing is with the "Republican" base anger. In our county, republicans hold every elected office except the Sheriff. Romney won our county. We are delivering the vote, but people are so angry at the national party and I am understanding with their dissatisfaction, which I agree with. I believe we need to grow our elected officials', take them for a...

    The most robust defense of Obamacare on television right now lasts about three seconds and comes from a little-known Texas Democrat named Barbara Mallory Caraway, a former state lawmaker running for Congress. Her $20,000 spot says last year's government shutdown led by her home-state senator, Republican Ted Cruz, hurt "those people looking for health care insurance." A Democratic super PAC indirectly plugged the health care law in a December ad, boasting that Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina "forced insurance companies to cover cancer and other preexisting conditions." Before that, campaign ad trackers say the last exclusively positive message on...

    One of the most high-profile victims of the IRS Tea Party targeting scandal is planning to unveil surprising new allegations about the top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee at a hearing this morning. Catherine Engelbrecht, the head of election integrity group True The Vote and Tea Party group King Street Patriots, alleges Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) demanded information from her group in a similar manner to the IRS, according to her testimony. “Hours after sending letters, he would appear on cable news and publicly defame me and my organization,” Engelbrecht said. The Tea Party leader is...

    The Democrats once styled themselves the party of workers. Now, they are the party of people who would have been workers, if it hadn’t been for Obamacare. The Congressional Budget Office released a new analysis of the economic effects of the health care law on Tuesday that estimates that it will reduce the number of workers, in effect, by 2.5 million in 2024. This unleashed a torrent of arguments from the Democrats implicitly denigrating the value of work. Perhaps not since Southern fire-eaters attacked Northern “wage slavery” in the mid-19th century has a good honest day’s work been talked about...

    Party caucuses are going on tonight in precincts across Minnesota. Caucuses are an old-fashioned civic tradition, more noted for boredom and long nights than anything else, but tonight there was some excitement at a DFL caucus in Minneapolis. A fight broke out: A very tense night at a caucus site in Minneapolis where DFLer Mohamud Noor is challenging longtime DFL state Rep. Phyllis Kahn. The heat in one Minneapolis location resulted in police being called out. With 300 people at the Byan [sic] Coyle Center, a fight broke out and people rushed the stage.

    **SNIP** As Politico described it on Friday, they have already set up an operation so sophisticated it rivals “even the official Republican Party in its ability to shape policy debates and elections.” Its components include a political consulting firm to recruit, train and support like-minded antigovernment candidates, which will be active in the congressional primaries. There is also a center that provides technology and administrative services to right-wing groups and candidates, an office that compiles and analyzes voter data and a youth advocacy group. In 2012, as The Washington Post reported, the Koch network raised $407 million, which was secreted...

    On Thursday, speaking at the John Podesta-founded Center for American Progress, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that if it were not for the Tea Party, immigration reform would have passed long ago. He blamed Tea Party opposition to immigration reform on racism. "In a pre-tea party world, the Senate immigration bill would have been welcomed by House Republicans," Schumer stated. "However, the tea party rank and file know it's a different America. It looks different; it prays different; it works different. This is unsettling and angering to some." Schumer added that discomfort with demographic change – racism – explained “why...
