    ANKARA (Reuters) - President Tayyip Erdogan blamed the U.S. ambassador to Turkey on Tuesday for a diplomatic crisis between the two countries and said Ankara no longer considered him Washington’s envoy. In a blunt and personal attack on outgoing ambassador John Bass, Erdogan suggested Bass acted unilaterally in suspending visa services in Turkey after the arrest of a U.S. consulate worker, and said “agents” had infiltrated U.S. missions.

    Megyn Kelly, the pretty face of Fox News, blames Donald Trump for Americans not trusting the mainstream media anymore, saying “they need us,” and it’s “dangerous” we don’t believe them anymore. She also threw Breitbart under the bus as well, as she’s demanding more than $20 million dollars a year to stay at Fox News.

    During his presidency, Obama has presided over the biggest losses for the Democratic Party since the early 1900’s but he is completely incapable of taking any responsibility for this. Our biased and corrupt media attacks Trump relentlessly then runs away crying every time he hits them back. Obama gets nothing but praise from the media but can’t stand the fact that one network (FOX) has dared to question him on occasion. He’s been at war with FOX News since the beginning of his presidency and they’re still his favorite scapegoat. Here’s what Obama said in a recent interview with Rolling...

    Author Ed Klein joined Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV on Wednesday after Donald Trump shocked the world by winning the US presidency in his first ever political race. Klein said Hillary Clinton called a friend and couldn’t stop crying. She blamed FBI Director Comey and Obama for the loss. Ed Klein: Here’s what I know, not my opinion. About 6:30 this morning she called an old friend. She was crying inconsolably. She couldn’t stop crying. And her friend, her female friend from way, way back said it was even hard to understand what she was saying she was crying so hard. This is Hillary we’re talking about. Eventually her friend...

    President Barack Obama responded to reports of slow job growth Friday by blaming Republicans who have opposed parts of his economic agenda. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) report found the economy added 242,000 new jobs in February. The latest number highlights a long-running trend of slow, yet positive, economic growth. Obama credits the growth to his agenda but its slowness to Republicans for their opposition to his plan. “The plans that we have put in place to grow the economy have worked,” the president declared in the Oval Office. “They would work even faster if we did not have...

Woodward claimed that people inside the White House are blaming him for the recent wave of criticism directed at the Obama administration. As for the mood inside the White House after the failed rollout of Obamacare, Woodward stated, “the temperature’s going up right now as there’s more and more criticism on the president’s comments on Obamacare.”

    The White House has taken down online White House visitor logs and blamed Congress. The logs, which were posted beginning in December 2009 “as part of President Obama’s commitment to government transparency,” are the latest victims of a partial government shutdown that has temporarily idled 17 percent of the federal workforce. “Due to Congress’s failure to pass legislation to fund the government, the information on this web site may not be up to date. Some submissions may not be processed, and we may not be able to respond to your inquiries,” reads the index page for the visitor logs.

    MSNBC host Krystal Ball excused the actions of IRS agents who targeted conservative organizations seeking tax-exempt status on The Last Word Monday night, saying budget cuts left them without the resources to do their jobs and they had to “enforce the law as they understood it.” “The other big story here I think that has been missed in the press is the fact that the IRS budget has been cut to the point that these agents can’t do their jobs,” she said. “They do not have the resources to do their jobs, so they were trying with the limited resources...

    On Friday, the IRS blamed "low-level" employees in its Cincinnati office for targeting tax-exempt organizations that had "Tea Party" or "Patriots" in their names during the 2012 election and apologized for their actions. Upon a review of the IRS bureaucracy, though, the Cincinnati office is not a random backwater outpost for "low-level" IRS rogues. In fact, the Cincinnati office is where determinations on tax-exempt organizations' eligibility are made and is the only physical office in the complex IRS bureaucracy dedicated to tax-exempt determinations. On the IRS's website, in the "How to Contact the Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division" section,...

    Ever notice that this administration is only lightning-fast when it comes to shifting blame when things don’t work out perfectly? They practically left a vapor trail in their zeal to anonymously accuse the US military of being responsible for our tense situation with North Korea: So, it’s the Navy’s fault that the U.S.-North Korea spat has gone so far? That’s the apparent message from senior administration officials who, according to the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, said that they had long planned to send B-52s, B-2 stealth bombers, and F-22 fighters to the Korean Peninsula as part of preplanned wargames...

    FBI Director Robert Mueller protested Tuesday that the steep rise in requests for background checks for gun purchases since the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School could be a problem because of the cuts imposed by sequestration. Background check requests from licensed gun dealers have risen by 50%, from an average of 54,000 each day to 81,000 every day since Sandy Hook. As a result, the FBI has expanded its staff of 300 to 500 so the background checks can be finished in three days.

    During a Monday press conference in the White House, President Barack Obama was asked about his seeming lack of interest in socialization with other members of the political establishment in Washington. Obama said that, while he is a friendly person, it takes two to socialize and Republicans are generally not interested in being seen with him. He blamed “media that is preferred by Republican constituencies” for creating an environment in which a Republican politician seen with Obama has to fear a primary fight in their next election. President Obama said he does socialize with members of Congress from the other...

    Afghan President Hamid Karzai blamed the U.S. and NATO forces on Thursday for some of the violence and the brunt of corruption that is rampant in his war-torn country. Karzai bluntly criticized allied tactics, declaring that terrorists won't be beaten "by attacking Afghan villages and Afghan homes." Speaking in an exclusive interview with NBC News, Karzai also said he had written a letter to President Barack Obama warning that Afghans will not permit American and NATO troops to stay past 2014 unless the U.S. turns over hundreds of detainees held at Bagram Air Base and a nearby facility.

    This is unbelievable. The Obama Administration blamed the “friendly fire” attacks in Afghanistan on US troops. U.S. Army specialist Mabry Anders (L), who was killed in an attack by an Afghan army soldier in Afghanistan on August 27, 2012, is pictured with his mother Genevieve Woydziak (C) and his stepfather Troy Woydziak in this undated handout family photo obtained by Reuters September 26, 2012. The “insider attack” also took the life of another U.S. soldier, Sergeant Christopher Birdwell. (REUTERS/Anders Family) The New York Post reported, via Pat Dollard: Afghan security forces, our supposed allies, are slaughtering American troops. Thirty-three soldiers...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has blamed Iran for a terror attack on an Israeli tour bus in Bulgaria today that has claimed the lives of seven Israeli civilians, vowing that Israel will respond. The attack comes on the eighteenth anniversary of a deadly Iranian terror attack against a Jewish community center in Argentina. Netanyahu promised to respond: "Israel will react powerfully against Iranian terror." Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton told Fox News' Megyn Kelly that Israel's message had to be taken seriously, given that Netanyahu did not mention Hizbullah--an Iranian proxy with a presence near...
