    The pilot was locked out of the cockpit...[SNIP]...And above all, we feel helpless because Barack Obama has locked us out. He locked the American people out of his decision to seize the national healthcare system. Locked us out when we wanted to know why the IRS was attacking conservatives. He locked us out of having a say in his decision to tear up our immigration laws, and to give over a trillion dollars in benefits to those who broke those laws. Obama locked out those who advised against premature troop withdrawals. Locked out the intelligence agencies who issued warnings about...

    President Barack Obama’s administration has been one rife with scandals. Some pertain directly to the President himself and his own actions–like the recent immigration executive order that some say unconstitutionally side-stepped Congress–and some to members of his administration, like the targeting of conservative groups by the IRS and the Secret Service’s series of embarrassments. So in the spirit of March Madness and NCAA bracketology, I crafted an Obama Administration Scandal Bracket, originally published at The Cornell Review.

    candal: Hillary's emails may be only the tip of an iceberg that could include Clinton Foundation donations to shield Boko Haram from being designated a terrorist group and her brother's involvement in a Haitian gold mine. We doubt Team Hillary was thrilled or her critics surprised Tuesday when the Inspector General for the Department of Homeland Security named Mrs. Clinton's brother, Tony Rodham, in a report about a firm that allegedly received preferential treatment from the Obama administration. The firm, Gulf Coast Funds Management, with Tony Rodham listed as its chief executive, allegedly benefited from what the report says was...

    The latest baggage threatening to dog Hillary Clinton’s expected bid for the White House comes in the form of her brother, who allegedly got help from the Department of Homeland Security in smoothing a business deal. The department’s inspector general found that Tony Rodham was given special treatment by DHS’ No. 2 in securing visas for foreigners connected to a deal. Rodham was CEO of an electric car company owned by another longtime Clinton pal, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, when he got help from DHS official Alejandro Mayorkas securing the visas for investors in the firm. It is not clear...

    Sen Chuck Grassley has written two letter to the State Dept. concerning a special arrangement for Huma Abedin, Hillary’s closest adviser. At the same time Abedin worked for the State Dept, she also worked for a company called Teneo. For those of you who don’t know it, Teneo bills itself as an expert in helping your company get government contracts. Can you see the obvious conflict of interest here? The Senate is trying to find out if Teneo’s clients received government grants and if they did, was Abedin and or Hillary involved? Abedin also had a private email account that...

They also confirmed that in 2012 when Obama enacted his DACA program, the immigration service halted his deportation. Obama and the democrats believe the life of one illegal alien is worth much more than the lives of four American citizens. Grassley and Tillis wrote to Jeh Johnson:

    The Obama years will be forever known as the Dark Ages of US history, a time of political, cultural and economic deterioration. We have yet to see if they will lead to the fall of the American republic. In the Obama years, the lie became not only a campaign strategy or a means to enact damaging policies, but an institution of government; the Presidency itself, a lie of monstrous proportions guarded by the complicit and the willingly ignorant. In the Obama years, the Congress finally clearly demonstrated that although we have elections, there is no longer a government representing its...

    Growing Democratic anxieties over a possible Hillary Clinton presidential candidacy received a jolt on Thursday, as Reuters revealed Hillary and Bill Clinton broke the disclosure rules they agreed to with the Obama administration by failing to disclose Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) donors since 2010. As Reuters notes, CHAI is the Clinton Foundation’s “flagship health program, which spends more than all of the other foundation initiatives put together.” The Reuters revelation comes on the heels of Hillary Clinton’s roundly criticized explanations for why she evaded records laws by using a personal email address and had a secret server housed in...

    WASHINGTON – There’s no love lost between the Clintons and the Obamas. But they have much in common. As previously mentioned in this series, Hillary Rodham Clinton is a disciple of Saul Alinsky, the ruthless, guileful, Marxist genius who explained how hard work, deceit and trickery can be used to impose unpopular restrictions on liberty, faith, family and free enterprise – empowering government as the ultimate authority over people. Likewise, so is Barack Hussein Obama. It’s no bulletin to anyone at this point, but, under the circumstances, it’s worth noting again that Alinksy dedicated his famous “Rules for Radicals” to...

    mailgate: The refusal of State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki to answer a simple yes or no question — did Hillary Clinton sign separation form OF-109? — is proof of a cover-up of a felony by the former secretary of state. You'd think that if Clinton didn't sign separation form OF-109 or was not asked to, the State Department and Team Hillary would have just said so. After all, it would be easier to deflect questions about getting special treatment than acknowledging the committing of a felony by essentially lying under oath with the false claim that you have returned all...

Obama told CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante that he learned of Hillary Clinton's use of her private email address for official State Department business after a New York Times report. With no apparent self-consciousness or embarrassment, Obama said he learned about it at "the same time everybody else...

It turns out Jeb Bush had a personal account, too, while governor of Florida. Both...

The heat was turned up after Politico reported that top White House officials knew back in August that Clinton was conducting official business on personal email.

    WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record. Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act.

    Academics often believe they are the smartest people around, and they like to tell others how best to live their lives. Add the government’s power to control people’s lives and you have a dangerous combination. Americans got a taste of this elitism when MIT’s Jonathan Gruber mocked "the stupidity of the American voter." But American voters aren’t the only ones who make mistakes. Time after time, the “architect" of ObamaCare underestimated costs and overestimated how many people would be covered. Like so many Ivory Tower academics, Gruber doesn’t understand how the real world operates. Could it be that those “stupid”...

    **SNIP** The IRS scandal that still leaves many stones unturned. While persons in the Obama administration have been investigating to a small degree, there is obvious a need to conduct more of an investigation into this concern. The assertions of lost emails by persons involved, such as Lois Lerner, is still unsettled. Just two days ago, Breitbart did a piece titled “IRS: Um, Yeah, We Never Actually Looked for Lois Lerner’s Emails or Anything.” Needless to say, the IRS scandal remains and has not settled well with Americans who want to know the truth. After all, targeting conservative groups prior...
  • Firing Offense? Valerie Jarrett is now scapegoat-in-chief

    The media have identified the problem with the Obama presidency and want her tarred and feathered. Or just fired. Or sidelined. Or made an ambassador to some faraway land. Her name is Valerie Jarrett. White House aide and longtime Chicago pal of Barack and Michelle Obama has been a target roughly from the day she stepped foot in Washington. But now, in the wake of the Democrats’ midterm wipeout, the press is really unloading on her. She has become the scapegoat-in-chief. The notion that a single staff person is responsible for most of the administration’s shortcomings over the last six...
  • Priebus: Obama Executive Amnesty Is ‘A Nuclear Threat’

    President Barack Obama’s promise to roll back parts of the nation’s immigration laws is a constitutional “nuclear threat,” Republican Party chairman Reince Priebus said Friday. Obama “is just throwing a barrel of kerosene on a fire if he signs an amnesty order,” Priebus told reporters at a Friday breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Priebus, the head of the Republican National Committee, also shifted the GOP’s public policy on immigration by downplaying the support for comprehensive immigration reform that it adopted after the 2012 presidential loss. Obama’s failure to guard the border against Central American migrants this summer, he...
  • Obama’s press conference shows he views the Republican tide as a mandate for him to act unilaterally

    Since 2007, I’ve been saying that Obama isn’t a mere narcissist but is, instead, a malignant narcissist. He worships at his own altar and is, in his own mind at least, infallible. The manifests itself most obviously in the fact that, once he’s set himself on an intellectual or behavioral path, he is incapable of change — or at least, incapable of change based upon external critique and criticism. To a narcissist, any such external input must either be ignored or twisted so that it conforms to the narcissists own immutable infallibility.Everything that I just wrote is highly abstract. If...
  • Planned Parenthood faces questions following series of scandals

    Planned Parenthood is America’s largest abortion provider, ending over 300 thousand lives every year. Most abortions are done early on and involve vacuum aspiration (i.e., sucking a human being down a tube), but that stops being practical around the end of the first trimester. By then, a fetus has to be pulled apart piece-by-piece with a set of forceps. While this is a gruesome image, it becomes even more troubling when you consider the findings of Dr. Kawaljeet Anand at the University of Tennessee. His research suggests that an unborn child is capable of suffering pain after just 20 weeks....

    Sunday on Fox News Channel's "MediaBuzz," Bob Woodward said there are, "lots of unanswered questions," about the Obama administrations involvement in the IRS scandal surrounding the targeting conservative groups for extra scrutiny. Woodward said, "The reality now in my view that in the Obama administration, there are lots of unanswered questions about the IRS, particularly. If I were young, I would take Carl Bernstein and move to Cincinnati where that IRS office is and set up headquarters and go talk to everyone."

    The short-attention span generation has birthed the shiny-object election. The theme of the 2014 midterms — to whatever extent one is discernable — has been an explosion of one crisis after another, each of which demands an enormous amount of media attention before fading for the next one. From the Secret Service to ISIS, Ebola to immigration, mistreated veterans to Ferguson and race relations, candidates and the president have been forced to react to the controversy du jour. Strategists and experts say the result has been bad news for Democrats, who have had a tougher time underscoring their preferred campaign...
