    Free Beacon ^ | 5/20/14 | David Rutz
    The Obama administration’s members say they’re doing “everything we can” to get to the bottom of the Veterans Affairs scandal, ensure another Benghazi is prevented, address the IRS targeting scandal, create new jobs, support Ukraine, find Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, bring peace to the Middle East and reduce gun violence. President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, Press Secretary Jay Carney and others are on top of it.

    Somewhere, somehow, in the last year my tag-line got deleted. I'd like to re-instate it, but can't seem to find out how to do this. I've looked through the admin sections several times, can't seem to find out the mechanism to do so. Any help is appreciated. TIA.
  • UGH: Obama admin forcing federal contractors to hire 7% disabled workers or face penalties

    The Right Scoop ^ | 3/20/14 | staff
    Another ridiculous regulation coming down from the Obama administration, basically telling federal contractors if they want to keep getting federal contracts then they must ensure that 7% of their workforce have a disability, which means these companies will be required to ask about this when hiring. WSJ – U.S. regulations are coming into effect next week that will require federal contractors to ask their employees if they have a disability, the WSJ reports. A group of employers that includes Boeing Co., Dell Inc. and AT&T Inc., among some 40,000 others, will be compelled to ask about employees’ disabilities for the...
  • Obama Admin Announces 'Retroactive' Obamacare Subsidies

    Breitbart ^ | 2/28/14 | Wynton Hall
    On Thursday, the Obama administration quietly announced it will allow consumers in states with busted Obamacare websites to retroactively bag taxpayer-funded insurance subsidies, even if they purchased health insurance outside the Obamacare marketplace. The move by the Obama administration will help Democratic candidates facing voters irate over Obamacare by now retroactively cutting checks to citizens in states with broken Obamacare websites. As CBS News reports, "Those who stand to benefit the most are Democratic governors who plunged ahead and ran into problems" because "Republican governors basically defaulted to federal control of online sign-ups in their states." Democratic Oregon Gov. John...

    The Obama administration is pressuring Israeli generals to stop publicly voicing their concerns about the administration’s security proposals in Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and instead endorse the administration’s plans, according to Israeli media reports. The administration is seeking a complete or partial IDF withdrawal from the Jordan Valley, where the border between Israel and Jordan lies at the eastern edge of Judea and Samaria, also called the West Bank. The Palestinian Authority has long sought control of the valley. However, Israel and Jordan are opposed to an IDF withdrawal, which they fear would enable the transit of terrorists and arms through Jordan...

    The Obama administration has hired the former top spokesman for the Planned Parenthood abortion business as deputy assistant secretary for public affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services. Tait Sye, the former media director for the nation’s biggest abortion business, will now work in the press shop for the department that is under fire for promoting abortion funding via Obamacare and putting forward a mandate that forces religious groups to pay for birth control and abortion-causing drugs for their employees. Not only will the man who formerly spoke for the company that does more than one-quarter of all...

    Hot Air ^ | 1/13/12 | Ed Morrissey
    We already know that the Obama administration’s stimulus-funded subsidies of green-energy firms have been rather poor investments. Solyndra, after all, collapsed while taking over half a billion dollars in taxpayer money with it, after the Department of Energy illegally subordinated taxpayer risk for later investors — mainly an Obama bundler from 2008, George Kaiser. CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson takes a break from reporting on Operation Fast and Furious to give a closer look at the performance of Barack Obama’s bets in the green-tech sector — and says that Obama bet more than $6.5 billion of taxpayer money in junk bonds:

    As states across the nation ramp up their efforts to catch illegal immigrants, the Obama administration on Thursday launched a new free hotline for people busted on violations to get help. The hotline, run by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is available 24/7 for detained individuals to phone if they think they “may be U.S. citizens or victims of a crime.” The hotline will have translation services available in several different languages. ICE personnel will gather the caller’s information and send it to a field office for immediate action, according to the press release. The purpose of the hotline...
  • Gunwalker Goes ‘Legal’: Obama Admin Massively Increased Gun Sales to Mexican Military

    PJ Media ^ | 12/8/11 | Bob Owens
    Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News has posted a bombshell article detailing how the Obama administration has greatly increased gun sales to the Mexican military. But further investigation into Attkisson’s discovery points toward the padding of a gun-control statistic — one frequently mentioned by the Obama administration — as the motive behind the increased sales. Writes Attkisson: One weapon — an AR-15-type semi-automatic rifle — tells the story. In 2006, this same kind of rifle — tracked by serial number — is legally sold by a U.S. manufacturer to the Mexican military. Three years later — it’s found in a criminal...

    Big Government ^ | 10/17/11 | Christopher C. Horner
    The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) has learned of a UN plan recently put in place to hide official correspondence on non-governmental communication accounts, which a federal inspector general has already confirmed are subject to FOIA requests. This “cloud” serves as a dead-drop of sorts for discussions by U.S. government employees over the next report being produced by the scandal-plagued IPCC, which is funded with millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars. Although this is seedy and unlawful at any time, it also goes in the “bad timing” file, especially for the Obama Administration and the UN. Just as a brand new book...

    The Obama administration today said a proposal from House Natural Resources Chairman Doc Hastings (R-Wash.) to expedite oil and gas leasing and energy infrastructure permitting in an Alaska reserve could force federal regulators to flout environmental laws and includes a costly, redundant resource assessment. Mike Pool, deputy director of the Bureau of Land Management, also announced the agency will hold lease sales in the National Petroleum Reserve, known as NPR-A, in December 2011 and each year after, making good on the administration's mid-May promise to expedite development in the 23-million-acre reserve.

    NIH Director Francis Collins has added two more lines of human embryonic stem cells to its Registry, bringing the current total to 93 lines approved for federal funding. Approval for listing in the NIH registry allows federal taxpayer funds to be used for experiments with these cells, creating an incentive for investigators to destroy more embryos and bring their own embryonic stem cell lines to the federal feeding trough. The two hESC lines are from BioTime, Inc., which designates them ESI-014 and ESI-017. According to the listing, the embryonic stem cells cannot be used for diagnostic or therapeutic uses. Collins...

    In a letter to several pro-life groups complaining about President Barack Obama’s decision to drop some of the conscience protections for medical professionals, the administration is defending the decision. Several pro-life groups sent a letter to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius warning her of the alarming effects on patients that will follow the Obama administration’s recent move to strip the medical community of key conscience protections on abortion. As LifeNews.com reported in February, the Obama administration overturned some of the conscience protections the Bush administration put in place to protect pro-life medical workers who don’t want to be involved in certain...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 5/2/11 | Neil Munro
    Via various speakers in different forums, administration officials are repeating their message of the day: The successful killing of Osama bin Laden shows how America can succeed when it unites and perseveres through difficult trials. The spin is true, but is also very compatible with the needs of President Obama, who is facing a stalled economy, high unemployment, incipient inflation, declining poll ratings, a GOP-controlled House, and expanding public worry that the nation is on the wrong track. “Today, we are reminded that, as a nation, there’s nothing we can’t do —- when we put our shoulders to the wheel,...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., March 22, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - An upcoming declaration by the Obama administration will mark the first time the United States has endorsed homosexualist policy at the United Nations. The statement condemning any criminal punishment against homosexual activity and urging greater attention to rights related to sexual orientation is scheduled for delivery Tuesday at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, reported the Associated Press Monday. The document, which has received support from 80 other countries, also calls upon the UN to scrutinize how governments worldwide treat homosexuals. While acknowledging that “these are sensitive issues for many,” the document...

    PENSACOLA, Fla.—The Justice Department asked a federal judge in Florida on Thursday to tell states that they must continue to enact the Obama administration's health care overhaul despite the judge's ruling that the law is unconstitutional. In a motion to clarify, administration attorneys asked U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson to make clear that states cannot ignore the new health care laws while his ruling is being appealed. At stake, according to the government's motion, are provisions of the new law that would create chaos if ignored by the states.

    The Obama administration is stepping up its criticism of the Bahraini government, as anti-regime protests in the U.S.-allied Persian Gulf nation entered their third day on Wednesday. “What the president believes … is that Bahrain, like all the countries in the region, needs to respect the universal rights of its citizens, their right to protest, their right to have their grievances heard,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday. “They should refrain from violence on both sides,” he said. “We are obviously watching events from Bahrain and around the region very closely.” Protests in Bahrain, which hosts the U.S....

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Determined to have a deficit commission with or without Congress' backing, President Barack Obama plans to announce on Thursday that he is establishing a panel similar to—although weaker than_ the one lawmakers rejected. Former White House chief of staff Erskine Bowles and former Republican Senate Whip Alan Simpson would lead the panel, a senior administration official said Tuesday. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the president's executive order creating the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform had not been announced.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration argued late Monday that allowing terrorism detainees in Afghanistan to file lawsuits in U.S. courts challenging their detention would endanger the military mission in that country. Although the Pentagon is giving the roughly 600 detainees at Bagram Airfield a new chance to challenge their detentions, the Obama administration stuck with Bush administration policy in a court filing Monday night that said the Bagram detainees' rights shouldn't extend as far as U.S. courtrooms. In a filing with the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, the Justice Department said Bagram detainees should not be given equal...

    BIG SKY, Mont. - The nation's demand for natural gas continues to outstrip supply and Western states are prime sources of fuel to fill that gap, Bush administration officials told the region's governors as the three-day Western Governor's Association meeting got under way. The administration considers the West "center stage" in the drive to reduce the country's dependence on foreign energy supplies, said Rebecca Watson, assistant secretary for land and minerals management in the U.S. Department of the Interior. "The western states are critical," Watson said. She spoke Sunday, the conference's opening day. Robert Card, undersecretary for the Department of...
