Jay Carney Resigns as White House Press Secretary






The announcement was delayed so Josh Earnest could take a lie detector test. The good news for the Obama administration was he failed.

----------------------------------------------------------



President Obama announced that White House Press Secretary Jay Carney would resign in mid-June, making a surprise announcement at the White House press briefing on Friday.

"Jay has become one of my closest friends and is a great press secretary and a great advisor," Obama said. "He's got good judgment. He has a good temperament, and he's got a good heart, and I'm going to miss him a lot." 




"In mid-life you don't often make a whole new set of friends," Carney said, who just turned 50. "Every day with you in here has been a privilege." 

"I'm not saying it's easy, but I love it," Carney said, calling his job an "honor and a joy." 

Obama said that Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest would take Carney's place at the White House. 

"My request is be nice to Jay on his farewell tour, and be nice to Josh during his initiation, which I'm sure will last two days, or perhaps two questions," Obama said to reporters.

Obama: 'I Always Take Responsibility,' but VA Scandal Started with Bush








President Obama announced the resignation of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki Friday, vowing to take full responsibility for the increasingly widespread scandal engulfing the VA's health services. Within seconds of taking responsibility, however, the President made sure to assert that the problems "predate my presidency."





"This predates my presidency. When I was in the Senate, I was on the Veterans Affairs Committee. I heard first-hand veterans who were not getting the kinds of services and benefits that they had earned," the President said to the White House Press Corps this afternoon. The assertion that the VA scandal was an ongoing cultural problem within the institution followed declaration that he would "always take responsibility for whatever happens," particularly with regard to Veterans Affairs.


In the same announcement, President Obama noted that it was "with considerable regret" that he accepted Secretary Shinseki's resignation. He took the time to commend Shinseki's work within the agency. "Under his leadership, we have seen more progress on more fronts at the VA and a bigger investment in the VA than just about any other VA secretary," the President asserted, adding that "Ric's commitment to our veterans is unquestioned. His service to our country is exemplary." Shinseki himself, he said, had begun the process of mass firings in agencies with considerable problems throughout the country.

President Obama emphasized the Shinseki's resignation did not have to do with his ability to run the organization, but his potential to become "a distraction," blaming "Congress and you guys [the media]" for the situation in which Shinseki, who oversaw the agency as the scandal developed, cannot keep his job. 

Shinseki himself apologized for the situation this morning but did not announce his resignation. "I said when this situation began weeks to months ago that I thought the problem was limited and isolated because I believed that," he said in a conference this morning, "I no longer believe it. It is systemic." He blamed himself for being "too trusting" and extended an apology "to the people whom I care most deeply about, that's the veterans of this great country, to their families and loved ones who I have been honored to serve."

Shinseki's apology followed the release of an investigation that found that VA officials nationwide had written false record information to mask the fact that many veterans were being forced to wait unreasonable amounts of time to receive medical care from the agency. The Washington Post describes the fabrications as "elaborate schemes to hide long waiting times date back as far as 2010."

The Case of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi




As usual Barry is embroiled in yet another scandal this one concerning the VA.




 As I said before he doesn't do anything unless he sees a political gain. A fine example was his recent trip to Afghanistan to divert attention from the VA scandal. The message was…see I love the troops…until they outed a CIA chief and it blew up in his face. Another golden opportunity to look like a champion has come his way and so far Barry has chose to pass it up. I'm talking about Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.  




The story is he made a wrong turn and somehow ended up in Mexico with three guns is his car and was subsequently thrown in jail. He also suffers from PTSD (guns and PTSD never go well together but that's a story for another day). The bottom line is Tahmooressi served his country admirably and his case deserves to be looked in to. But Barry and Stedman were preoccupied with the botched execution of a Black man (Clayton Lockett) calling it "deeply troubling". Barry asked Stedman to analyze problems with the implementation of the death penalty. This for a guy who shot a woman before burying her alive while Tahmooressi, a decorated vet, is left to rot in a Mexican jail.

 Shows where the priorities of this administration lie.



All said and done Barry has the upper hand. He could threaten Mexico by enforcing our immigration laws (sad when you think about it) since we employ more of their citizens then they do. If additional arm twisting is needed maybe Valerie could write a little speech for Barry starting with this line. 



Lets here it for Barry! (yea)

Trump...Barry dodged $50 mil offer for student records


Donald Trump thinks there's 'a very good chance' Obama dodged a $50 million offer to see his student records because Obama PRETENDED to be Kenyan in order to attract financial aid

By Francesca Chambers

Published: 18:00 EST, 27 May 2014 | Updated: 18:07 EST, 27 May 2014

My take:

I bet this story is 100% correct, which gives this piece on Breitbart all the more credence. 


Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama's then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as "born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.

The simple premise is... why do you need your college transcripts sealed unless you have something to hide?


Later it was explained away as a "fact checking error"

If it was wrong back then why didn't Barry correct it?
Mysteriously in 2007...it just disappeared. Wonder why?

-------------------------------------------------



Not only does billionaire Donald Trump not 'regret' questioning President Barack Obama's birth place, Trump now says there's 'a very good chance' president Obama pretended to be Kenyan in order to attract financial aid money in college. 

'Because if you say you were born in Kenya, you got aid, and you got into colleges,' Trump said, 'People were doing that.'

The Apprentice star told Washington-based reporters on Tuesday that he still doesn't understand why president Obama would turn down a $50 million gift to charity if he's telling the truth about his past.


Donald Trump, chairman and president of the Trump Organization, said today it's possible that president Obama was born in the U.S. but lied on college applications and said he was from Kenya. 'Because if you say you were born in Kenya, you got aid, and you got into colleges,' Trump said

Trump's disbelief that Obama is indeed an American citizen, as required by law to hold the presidency, stems from a typo in a book agency's 1991 biography of Barack Obama, in which Obama was listed as being from Kenya. 

After the bio surfaced in 2012 a former editor at the book company said it was 'a fact checking error.'

Trump isn't as sure the line itself was a mistake as he is that then-Illinois state senator Barack Obama made a mistake in having it put in his promotional materials.

Even after Obama released documentation of his birth, Trump said he remained unconvinced. 

Several days before the 2012 presidential election, Trump announced that he was offering President Obama $5 million to put toward a charity in his home town, Chicago, Illinois, if he turned over his birth certificate, passport and college records.

Trump says he later increased that amount to $50 million, a number that was not reported in the media at the time, but Obama still wouldn't play ball.

' I never heard from him,' Trump said on Tuesday, adding that he would take the money if it were the other way around.

'The Donald' got on the subject of Obama's background today after he was asked during the Q and A portion of a National Press Club luncheon if he regretted his past statements about the president's birthplace.

'Not even a little bit,' Trump said. 'I don't regret it.'

'Why would I regret it?' he asked amid applause from the audience.

Trump said there were three scenarios to explain Obama's past: 'Either it's fine, or he was born in Kenya, or in my opinion there's a very good chance he was born here, and said he was born in Kenya. Because if you were born in Kenya, you got into colleges, and you got aid,' Trump said. 'Very simple.'

Though many Americans have tired of Trump's quest to see Obama's personal records, Trump claims people on the street are still asking him to pursue the issue.

'Now I hope that it's 100 percent fine,' Trump said, but later mentioned 'I'd love to see what's put down.'

The chickens DID come home to roost




We all remember (if you don't its because there wasn't any) the play Chelsea Clinton's father-in-law got in the press. 



This received the same amount of attention.

Tip from Ed Kilbane
Senior National Correspondent  


JEREMIAH WRIGHT'S DAUGHTER CONVICTED OF FRAUD



On Friday, a federal jury took less than two hours to convict the daughter of President Barack Obama's controversial former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, of fraud. 

Jeri Wright was found guilty of a fraud scheme that siphoned thousands of taxpayer dollars intended for a not-for-profit work and education program known as We Are Our Brother's Keeper.

Prosecutor Timothy Bass said Jeri Wright lied "over and over" and went on a "spending spree" that included traveling to Las Vegas, buying vehicles, and remodeling her basement with cash from the money laundering scheme. 

She was found guilty on all counts. 

"If you take and misuse government money, and then lie about it, you will be held accountable in a court of law," said U.S. Attorney for the Central District of Illinois, Jim Lewis. 

We Are Our Brother's Keeper, owned by former Country Club Hills Police Chief Regina Evans and her husband, scored a $1.25 million state grant that was intended to offer bricklaying and electrical training, as well as GED preparation. Wright took up to $11,000 from checks worth more than $30,0000, and $20,000 deposited back into the Evans' accounts. Both Regina and Ronald Evans, Jr. have pleaded guilty to fraud. 

Wright's sentencing is slated for July, but she says she will "definitely" appeal. 

"I didn't do anything," Wright said while leaving the courtroom.


-----------------------------------------



Like father...Like daughter.

 Trinity United purchased a lot in Tinley Park, a predominantly white Chicago suburb, and Jeremiah built a 10,340-square-foot home valued at $1.6 million.

 Jeremiah's mansion — includes Greek columns, endless garages, golf course, and more…




God damn America! 
Here’s your wealth-spreading, redistributive change in action.



Another lie 


Barry on Wright's rants:

"The statements that Rev. Wright made that are the cause of this controversy were not statements I personally heard him preach while I sat in the pews of Trinity or heard him utter in private conversation."

Remember now, Barry attended this church for 25 years. This should have been a red flag to the MSM. What was claimed here is... the only time Rev Wrong preached like that was when Obama wasn't in attendance.

You didn't really expect the MSM to question his implausible statement did you?

Watch Rev Wrong in action.

Perhaps the congregation should have invested in history books instead of a lot in Tinley Park.

Obama, the unaccountable president







“All I know is just what I read in the papers, and that’s an alibi for my ignorance.”

— Will Rogers





by Joseph Curl 
The Washington Times



Has there ever been a president in the history of America who knew less than President Obama?





With each new crisis and scandal, Mr. Obama tells Americans that he just didn’t know.

He didn’t know the Veterans Administration was letting America’s veterans languish and die unattended — he learned about it in the newspaper.

He didn’t know the Justice Department was trolling phone records of members of the U.S. media. He didn’t know the ATF was running guns into Mexico; didn’t know the NSA was spying on the German chancellor; didn’t know the Obamacare website was a disaster; didn’t know the IRS was targeting conservative groups.

With every scandal, the president — the CEO of the United States, if you will — said he first learned about it in the papers. If he were head of Apple or IBM, he’d have been fired years ago, because in business, it’s your job to know, and ignorance is, frankly, even worse than failing. Fail = fired.


Each time Mr. Obama is faced with a scandal, he does three things: First, he expresses outrage (he is, after all, a man only of words, not deeds); then, he blames his predecessor, George W. Bush; finally, he wraps the entire mess up in bureaucratic red tape — a blue-ribbon investigation.

That last move, Mr. Obama’s go-to dodge, does two things: No one, not even the president himself, can speak on the matter (“It’s under investigation and we should hold off on any … “); And second, a lengthy probe means Americans will be distracted and move on by the time any final finding is reached.

That’s what happened with Fast and Furious, the gun-running scandal that eventually prompted Congress to hold Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. in contempt. What did the president do? Nothing. Not a thing. All the other scandals have followed the same template.

When the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were killed in Benghazi, Libya, Mr. Obama and his minions refused to comment for months, citing the “investigation.” That led to then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton uttering her infamous line when forced to testify before Congress months later: “What difference at this point does it make?”

This latest of many scandals is exactly the same. Dozens of America’s veterans died waiting for health care, and reports have emerged that government employees actively covered up the scandal. So, Mr. Obama deftly dodged the press for weeks, sending out his flack Jay “Circus” Carney to cover for him with his pals in the White House briefing room.

Then, the president held a meeting with the prime culprit in the latest scandal — behind closed doors. Which, of course, led to the press conference in which the milquetoast commander in chief expressed his outrage, as he did Wednesday.

“When I hear allegations of misconduct — any misconduct — whether it’s allegations of VA staff covering up long wait times or cooking the books, I will not stand for it. Not as Commander-in-Chief,” the piqued president peeped.

While Mr. Obama harangued Bush over the VA as far back as 2007, pledging to fix the system if elected president, more than five years in office later he once again blamed his predecessor.

“Some of the problems with respect to how veterans are able to access the benefits that they’ve earned, that’s not a new issue,” he said. “So today, I want every veteran to know we are going to fix whatever is wrong.”

Lastly, the president announced — The Probe. “But we have to let the investigators do their job and get to the bottom of what happened,” he said. Queried by reporters, he dodged: “I don’t want to get ahead of the IG report or the other investigations that are being done.”

Just like in Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal, the phone records scandal, the spying scandal, the Obamacare website scandal, no heads rolled. No one was ever held accountable, least of all the president — the CEO.

But asked who is to blame for this latest scandal, Mr. Obama said Wednesday: “You know, the responsibility for things always rests ultimately with me, as the president and commander-in-chief.”

And he pledged, once again: “I am going to make sure that there is accountability throughout the system — after I get the full report.”

So, maybe he’ll fire himself?

Or maybe, just maybe, the American people should hold him accountable and fire him, quick.

Interviewing Hillary Clinton, Robin Roberts leaves the big question unasked





This brings back memories of when she was on the Today Show discussing her husband's affair with Lewinsky :




LAUER: But you're probably the most credible defender of the president at this time? 
CLINTON: Well, I probably know him better than anybody alive in the world. So I would hope I'd be the most credible defender. 

LAUER: James Carville, who you know...

CLINTON: Great human being...

LAUER: I'm sure you like him, especially at this time. He has said this is war between the president and Kenneth Starr. 
You have said, I understand, to some close friends that this is the last great battle and that one side or the other is going down here. 

CLINTON: Well, I don't know if I've been that dramatic. That would sound like a good line from a movie. But I do believe that this is a battle. 
I mean, look at the very people who are involved in this. They have popped up in other settings. 
This is—the great story here for anybody willing to find it and write about it and explain it is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president. A few journalists have kind of caught on to it and explained it. But it has not yet been fully revealed to the American public. And actually, you know, in a bizarre sort of way, this may do it. 





Later he asks:


LAUER: Let me take you and your husband out of this for a second. Bill and Hillary Clinton aren't involved in this story. If an American president had an adulterous liaison in the White House and lied to cover it up, should the American people ask for his resignation?

CLINTON: Well, they should certainly be concerned about it.

LAUER: Should they ask for his resignation? 

CLINTON: Well, I think that—if all that were proven true, I think that would be a very serious offense. That is not going to be proven true. I think we're going to find some other things. And I think that when all of this is put into context, and we really look at the people involved here, look at their motivations and look at their backgrounds, look at their past behavior, some folks are going to have a lot to answer for.

Interviewing Hillary Clinton, Robin Roberts leaves the big question unasked


Julio Cortez/AP Hillary Clinton, left, with Robin Roberts during the interview Wednesday at Philanthropy New York's annual meeting 




Not only did she bury the lead, but this "Good Morning America" star didn't even bother to dig it up.

Just a day after Monica Lewinsky released her most detailed account of her relationship with former President Bill Clinton and its fallout in a wide-ranging essay in the June issue of Vanity Fair magazine, "GMA" host Robin Roberts blew an opportunity to follow up on it with Hillary Clinton — a key player in the scandal that threatened to bring down her husband's presidency.

Lewinsky, in her essay, labeled the former First Lady's "tendency" to blame the "other woman" as "troubling."

Roberts interviewed Clinton at a charity event in New York Wednesday, with ABC airing portions, but opted to ignore Lewinsky's comments. An ABC News rep denied that Clinton had asked Roberts to steer clear of the Lewinsky essay.

"There were no restrictions, and Robin was free to ask whatever she wanted," network spokeswoman Heather Riley said. "Having prepared a question on Monica, as the live interview unfolded with the former secretary of state, Robin made the decision to focus on Benghazi and the kidnapping of hundreds of young schoolgirls in Nigeria."

In her Vanity Fair piece, Lewinsky indicated that she is dreading Clinton's potential run for the White House in 2016.

"Despite what some headlines will falsely report about this piece, this is not about Me versus the Clintons," Lewinsky wrote.

"In 2008, when Hillary was running for president, I remained virtually reclusive."

But "when I hear of Hillary's prospective candidacy, I cannot help but fear the next wave of paparazzi, the next wave of 'Where is she now?' stories, the next reference to me in Fox News' coverage of the primaries," she wrote.

What a liar!



Bigots 'big reason' he left GOP, Florida's Crist says



He left because he was getting trounced by Rubio. He discovered "racism" in the party after the polls showed him trailing Rubio by 20 points. What a lying piece of crap!   

----------------------------------------------------- 






Democrat Charlie Crist is offering up a new and inflammatory reason he left the GOP: Too many Republicans oppose President Barack Obama because he's black.

Crist's remarks, made on Tuesday in an interview with Fusion's Jorge Ramos, instantly drew rebukes from Republicans who said the party-switching former governor was playing the race card.

But Crist said the bigotry against Obama was a "big reason" for his decision to leave the party.

"I couldn't be consistent with myself and my core beliefs, and stay with a party that was so unfriendly toward the African-American president — I'll just go there," Crist said. "I was a Republican and I saw the activists and what they were doing. It was intolerable to me."

Ramos said Crist left the GOP to run as an independent because he was losing the 2010 Senate Republican primary to Marco Rubio. But Crist denied it.

Crist has made race an on-again and off-again theme as he campaigns to get his old job back as a Democrat, his third party affiliation. When he left the GOP four years ago, he never mentioned race.

"Being a flip-flopper is bad enough, but playing the race card to win over voters is pitiful," said Izzy Santa, Republican National Committee spokeswoman.

Crist, saying he was "liberated as a Democrat," also bashed the GOP for being too inflexible and for appearing to be "anti-women, anti-immigrant, anti-minority (and) anti-gay."

What we know and what we don't




News conference right after the Benghazi attack on September 11, 2012.

(If video won't load click post title)

"Make no mistake we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people"

It's been almost 2 years now, and even though various network reporters have  interviewed some of the perpetrators, (some even bragged about it), there has not been one arrest except for the guy who shot the video.





Why is that?

To this day we don't know Barry's whereabouts when the Benghazi attack unfolded.

Later Barry, with the help of the media, was able to take the IRS scandal, Rosen wiretapping, and Benghazi mix them all together and rebrand them as "phony scandals" . Of course the media sat by again and did nothing. What's phony about 4 dead Americans? Everyday more leaks come out solidifying this was a cover up from the get go. How could we as a nation allow 4 Americans to die without lifting a finger? 

Probably the most telling was this:


The very next day after the attack he flew to Las Vegas for a fundraiser. What does that say about the man?

Bet this is the case in the other "56" states




Only half of Georgia Obamacare enrollees have paid premiums


Another issue for Barry is claiming 8 million have enrolled in ObamaCare. How many of those purported 8 million are comprised of the 6 million who had their insurance cancelled?

Do the math.
The premise of ObamaCare was to cover the 35 million uninsured. Add the 6 million who were cancelled puts us at 41 million minus 8 million who signed up gives us a total of 39 million uninsured and the employer mandate hasn't kicked in yet!

------------------------------------------------------------------








If you believe the numbers coming out of the Obama administration, some 222,000 people in Georgia "enrolled" into health plans on the federal Obamacare exchange. Only they didn't. Turns out that about half of those people have actually paid their insurance premiums:


Georgia insurers received more than 220,000 applications for health coverage in the Affordable Care Act's exchange as of the official federal deadline of March 31, state officials said Wednesday.

Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens, though, said premiums have been received for only 107,581 of those policies, which cover 149,465 people.

"Many Georgians completed the application process by the deadline, but have yet to pay for the coverage," Hudgens said in a statement Wednesday.

March 31 was the official deadline for individuals to get insurance coverage or face a financial penalty under the ACA. Yet because of the deluge of last-minute shoppers, federal officials relaxed the rules for those who reported having trouble with the exchange, and gave them into this week to sign up.

Given that extra time, there have presumably been more Georgians both signing up and paying for their premiums in April. They would not be included in the figures released Wednesday.

Not to worry. Look for Barry to deduct the premium from their paycheck... just like SS.
