Shoes Keep Dropping

shoe dropAll the alphabet agencies are having big problems continuing into June. It’s definitely popcorn time on the Hill. From White House Dossier

Anyhoo, they’re doing nepotism at the Department of Energy, according to the agency’s inspector general, who concluded:

Despite the department’s ethics program and information regarding prohibited personnel practices, advocating for the selection of relatives appears to have become an open and widely accepted departmental practice.

Even our Congress critters are getting in on the act.

Meanwhile, speaking of nepotism, word is that Sen. Chuck Schumer’s 28-year old daughter Jessica has somehow become the future chief of staff for the White House Council of Economic Advisers Chair nominee, Jason Furman.

Preezy budget is still a mess…..wants to keep robbing Peter to benefit Paul….another $6 in tax increases for every $1 in spending cuts

The federal government will take in a record haul over the next ten years. And the President wants yet another massive tax hike…. The government is taking more from hardworking taxpayers only to spend more in Washington.

Indeed. We need comprehensive tax reform and entitlement reform instead of massive tax increases.

Spending more in DC includes those lavish parties, concerts, dinners, paycayshuns AF WON and TOO (the WONS personal RVs) for BO and MO and a few thousand of their closest friends. In the meantime there is chaos in the government and we are taxed to death for an ever expanding bloated government. With all this in addition to the scandals and scandalous behavior, how are we supposed to “trust” any of them? Like BO said, “if you can’t trust the government, then we’ve got a problem”. Yes indeed, we do have a big major problem!

State Dept is a chaotic mess as well….Hillary’s sorry state of affairs

“It’s a coverup,” declared Cary Schulman, a lawyer representing the whistleblower, former State Department IG senior investigator Aurelia Fedenisn.“The whole agency is impaired.

“Undue influence . . . is coming from political appointees. It’s coming from above the criminal- investigation unit,” added Schulman, whose client provided the document with the revelations.

For a round up of the Scandalanche® head over to Motus …never fails to inform in the most enlightening way.

OBAMA: Oppressive Bureaucracy Always Monitoring Americans   Yes We Scan!!

Yes_We_Scan

A common theme….abuse of power

But, in fact, there’s a common theme in all of these scandals:  Abuse of power.  And, what’s more, that abuse-of-power theme is what makes the NSA snooping story bigger than it otherwise would be.  It all comes down to trust.

The justification for giving the government a lot of snooping power hangs on two key arguments:  That snooping will make us safer and that the snooping power won’t be abused.

The most power hungry Preezy to have ever been elected is asking you to trust him…..what a joke.

    Yeah, sure Barry, I trust you like I trust a rattlesnake sitting on a rock sunning himself. When you sleep with vipers Barry, you end up getting bitten. You are a snake in the grass and full of venum, your beady eyes watching Americans as you slither along dark corridors to meet and wind around the feet of our enemies. Sssssssst!!!!!!

  2. Good question….
    “Incidentally, President Obama undermined his own claims about this so-called decline as he sought to explain the data collection by the NSA. If terror is behind us, why is “meta-tracking” in front of us?”

  3. Do they really need to do this? Why are we paying for a damned picnic?

    “The White House Congressional Picnic for Members of Congress and their families will not take place in June this year,” read an email from the White House Office of Legislative affairs to members of Congress. “We are hopeful that we will be able to reschedule this event for September.”

  5. Obama media stooges …..

    Reporters who attended Monday’s session with the president were loathe to discuss it with BuzzFeed, citing the White House’s stipulation that the meeting remain off the record. But the session came after the White House announced a “travel/photo lid” for the day — White House parlance for no more events, and the signal for the pool reporter to go home — and reporters from The New York Times, Washington Post, Huffington Post, Time, McClatchy, Politico, Tribune, NPR, Bloomberg, USA Today, AFP, Yahoo and other outlets were milling around the briefing room waiting to be called in. In total, about two dozen reporters were included. (BuzzFeed was not invited to the meeting, although a reporter, who did not know the president would be present, requested to be included.)

  6. Just a reminder…..looks as if I was right about Google….in the pocket of BO…very disappointed none of the other internet or mobile giants did one iota of pushback against PRISM, not one.

    ” Eric Schmidt, in particular, seems on his way to becoming a major Democratic powerbroker, bringing Silicon Valley smarts–and who knows what else–into the realm of partisan campaigning. Schmidt is so into this president that he snapped up the 2012 Obama campaign’s data analytics team–hired the whole Chicago group–and has now launched them in a new company. The company, Civis Analytics, will work on various for-profit and non-profit projects, including helping the Obama administration dragoon young people into Obamacare. And oh yes, Civis will also work on political campaigns–but only for Democrats.

  7. I am definitely in the need-to-be-convinced category when it comes to PRISM. Considering all the fall out of the last few weeks, I am absolutely not convinced this is a necessary evil.
    BO, if he wanted to have a conversation, certainly didn’t start one until it was exposed. What troubles me the most is the super secrecy and the blatant lies of Clapper when asked if NSA was gathering data on millions of Americans.

  8. Obama’s agenda is crashing. Walls around him are crumbling under various ethics violations. The left is in this mess because the decision makers were miserable human beings who may finally get what they deserve.

    Good human beings do not declare war on half the country. They do not use the IRS to try to rig an election by intimidating conservatives merely trying to participate in the democratic process.

    Good human beings do not spy on reporters and go shopping for one liberal activist judge willing to conflate a conservative journalist with a terrorist subversive.

    Good human beings do not leave American diplomats and Navy SEALs to die because it conflicts with a political narrative of victory against terrorism.
