  • How much did you pay Jonathan Gruber to lie to you? Millions. The money is piling up.

    11/18/2014 8:03:35 AM PST · by rktman · 25 replies ^ | 11/17/2014 | Robert Laurie
    If you’ve been paying attention to the story about the myriad Jonathan Gruber videos, you’ve probably heard the sum of $400,000.00 bandied about. That’s how much the Department of Health and Human Services paid him to trick the CBO, lie to the American people, and help pass a bill that was reliant on “the stupidity of the American voter.” Since HHS has no real money of its own, that’s actually how much you, the taxpayer, paid him to con you. Unfortunately, it’s also just the beginning. In fact, $400K is only a drop in the Gruber ObamaCare money vault. So,...

    "I start with the Constitution, where Article II, Section 3, requires that the president take care that the laws are faithfully executed," former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said on Sunday. "From my perspective, I don't think the president has the authority to amend, repeal or suspend the law or fail to refuse a law based solely on policy." Gonzales, who served in the George W. Bush administration, was speaking to CNN's "State of the Union" with Candy Crowley.
  • Non-Citizens Are Voting

    Could non-citizen voting be a problem in next week’s elections, and perhaps even swing some very close elections? A new study by two Old Dominion University professors, based on survey data from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study, indicated that 6.4 percent of all non-citizens voted illegally in the 2008 presidential election, and 2.2 percent in the 2010 midterms. Given that 80 percent of non-citizens lean Democratic, they cite Al Franken ’s 312-vote win in the 2008 Minnesota U.S. Senate race as one likely tipped by non-citizen voting. As a senator, Franken cast the 60th vote needed to make Obamacare law.

Another 20 states don’t require identification. In case you’re wondering where your state is at in all of this, a helpful (sic) graphic from the Post’s graphics team.” So...

    Voter fraud probably gave Mr. Obama the victory in 2012. It may well prove to be crucial in deciding the tight race to capture the Senate in 2014. As many as one in six of the millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. are registered to vote, and surveys of this group have shown that nearly all of those who do vote will vote “Democrat.” Why do the illegals vote this way? The answer lies in a simple metric that has driven the “Democrat” campaign for a decade, and which the frighteningly unpolitical GOP has never bothered to understand.

    The media celebrated Friday as the Department of Labor announced a “surge of hiring” – 248,000 new jobs added in September. The unemployment rate has now dropped to 5.9 percent. The Labor Department also revised upward the jobs numbers from July and August, adding 69,000 jobs; that puts the last three months of job growth at 671,000. The Associated Press, among others, speculates that the Federal Reserve may now talk about raising interest rates. But all is not well in the real economy. Here are five indicators that despite the rosy picture being painted of the Obama economy, things still...

It reflects his deepest beliefs that lies, chaos and distraction are transformation strategies that an emerging ‘star dictator’ needs. The game goes like this: Always lie to the masses, insert cheat cards throughout the deck without the players knowing and redefine what is really going on right in front of your ‘stupid’ opponent’s eyes.

    Obama is rotten in America. He has caused the country to go from the class of Audrey Hepburn to the clumsiness of Anna Nicole Smith. He needs a triple-E bra to contain his ego. He was supposed to unite red and blue, white and black. Instead he has made divisiveness his specialty. There is no coordination between his speeches and their pragmatic realities. People rioted in Ferguson, Missouri over criminal Michael Brown’s death. Obama did not defuse the rampant hatred.

Not to mention all the extra traffic congestion Obama’s visit caused, which resulted in even more carbon dioxide being pumped into the atmosphere. Even in Los Angeles, not everyone can afford to shell out $69,900 for a Tesla ($62,400 after federal tax credit). In fairness to Obama, though, he wasn’t just receiving an award.

But the value of of examining all of Lois Lerner’s emails during the months in question has to do with the two-track approach to the IRS investigation that Republicans have initiated. The first track is an examination of the targeting scandal and all the related issues associated with IRS actions. The second, and equally important, track, is getting to the bottom of...

Voter rolls typically shrink in non-presidential election years, but this is the first time in nearly four decades that the number of registered Hispanics has dropped significantly. That figure fell 5 percent across the country, to about 11 million, according to the Census Bureau.

If you ever wonder how we could find ourselves $14 trillion in debt and sinking fast, consider how fast and loose the mythical guardians of the public purse are with keeping their own finances in order and meeting their own tax obligations. As Politico has reported, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said Monday that she will sell her private plane and pay $287,273 in back...

    Georgia investigators started arresting about 80 people around the state Wednesday for allegedly lying their way into federally funded Section 8 housing. Georgia Bureau of Investigation Director Vernon Keenan said 63 people were arrested by Wednesday evening and more will follow in coming weeks. The announcement of further arrests was intended as a threat toward Section 8 cheaters across the state. Keenan invited those who have erred on their Section 8 forms to come forward, since they could receive leniency. Those found cheating would have to leave the housing and pay back what they owe, but they might not face...

    PHOENIX - Governor Jan Brewer and the Arizona Department of Economic Security set in motion a new anti-fraud unit effective July 1.

The Nutrition Assistance Program is a necessary part of the safety net, particularly in these difficult times, but these benefits must be used to...

    Looking to challenge a time-honored privilege widely used by both parties when they are in the minority, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Wednesday vowed to remove the filibuster as a weapon to kill legislation by debating it to death. In a summit with liberal online groups, the Nevada Democrat claimed the procedural maneuver has been “abused,” "Next Congress, we're going to take a look at it. We are likely to have to make some changes in it, because the Republicans have abused that just like the spitball was abused in baseball and the four-corner offense was abused in basketball,"...

    Obama Calls out Contractor “Tax Cheats”January 20, 2010 12:12 PM From Sunleen Miller: Calling out “deadbeat companies” that are being awarded government contracts while delinquent in their taxes, President Obama today signed a presidential memorandum to stop these companies from collecting government contracts while they are “gaming the system.” In a time of great need, when our families and our nation are finding it necessary to tighten our belts, and be more responsible with how we spend our money, we can’t afford to waste taxpayer dollars,” Obama said from the Eisenhower Executive Office Building this morning, “And we especially can’t...

    President Barack Obama on Wednesday signed an executive order directing the Office of Management and Budget and other federal agencies to keep contractors who are delinquent on their taxes from getting new contracts with the government. He also directed the IRS to review contractor filings to ensure the companies are not lying about the taxes they've paid. "By issuing this directive, all of us in Washington will be required to be more responsible stewards of your tax dollars. All across this country, there are people who meet their obligations each and every day. You do your jobs. You support your...

    Nearly 1 in 10 San Francisco Muni riders boards a bus or streetcar without paying, costing the city's transit agency an estimated $19 million a year in lost revenue. The system averages almost 700,000 boardings a day. The findings, outlined in a study to be presented to the Municipal Transportation Agency governing board Tuesday, echoes what many Muni regulars long have griped about: Fare cheating is commonplace. Previous studies also reflected that fare evasion is enshrined in Muni culture.
