    Since Obama’s inauguration in January 2009 there have been several major scandals in which his Administration has been involved, principally, Operation Fast and Furious the government sponsored sale of guns to small time gun sellers along our border with Mexico; the failed ‘Stimulus’ loan of multi-millions to Solyndra and LightSquared, two small businesses that were Obama preferred for loans. All three of these Obama Administration ventures were major failures involving scandalous behavior. ...Is the entire communications arm of our country becoming beholden to Obama and his scandal ridden administration peopled by socialist, communists who break our laws with impunity and...

    According to the criminal complaint, Sule broke into the man's home in the 6800 block of Seventh Street Northeast in Fridley about 8 p.m. Sept. 19, 2010, and made the man go with him to a bedroom. After repeatedly telling the man, "I love you, I want to kiss you," Sule sexually assaulted him, the complaint said. The man, who died earlier this year, told police he tried to fight back but was weak from ongoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments. His attorney argued Sule did not know the implications of agreeing to the swab because officers asked him in English,...

    The Los Angeles Times opened up a new front in the Solyndra scandal on Friday (and there are too many fronts to count at this point), reporting that Steve Spinner, another prominent Obama donor, served as a top official in the Energy Department program that made the half-billion dollar loan to the now bankrupt solar panel maker. In Spinner's defense, he did recuse himself from the decision to grant the loan—because his wife works at a law firm that represented Solyndra. Still, as the Times notes, these conflicts of interest did not prevent Spinner from spinning for Solyndra—without any disclosure...

    Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona has constituted a special law enforcement posse to investigate allegations brought by members of the Surprise, Ariz., Tea Party that the birth certificate Barack Obama released to the public April 27 might be a forgery, WND has learned.

    The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said Friday that President Obama’s half-uncle, an illegal immigrant who was picked up but has reportedly been released from jail, appears to have benefited from the new “backdoor amnesty” the administration announced last month. “It appears there is a double standard — one for President Obama’s family and one for everyone else,” Rep. Lamar Smith, Texas Republican, said. “Last year, President Obama’s illegal immigrant aunt was granted asylum and now his illegal immigrant uncle has been released from [the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency] custody, even though he was arrested by authorities for...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 08/29/11 | Timothy P. Carney
    If you're looking for proof that Too Big to Fail is still alive, and that Washington won't leave large financial institutions to the mercies of capitalism, consider billionaire Obama fundraiser Warren Buffett's $5 billion bet on struggling Bank of America. Buffett, who recently won plaudits for advocating higher taxes, has spent four years betting on bailouts and big government -- and tilting the playing field in that direction by putting his money and prestige at the service of Barack Obama. Buffett gave the maximum donation to Obama in 2007 -- $4,600 to his campaign, and $28,500 to the Democratic National...

    FORT LAUDERDALE— Willie David Rice could be commended for his honesty, at least. In federal court on Thursday to answer to charges that he guarded an Oakland Park brothel, he gave this response when the judge asked about his line of work: "Criminal." After an awkward pause, Rice, 45, explained he's never had legitimate employment. He was one of three people arrested in May during a raid on the Boom Boom Room, a bordello with underage girls.

    LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The Los Angeles, Times reported that William G. McMahon, William D. Newell and David Voth, the three key supervisors in the Phoenix-run investigation that went wrong, were promoted to management positions at the ATF's Washington headquarters. The House committee investigating "Fast and Furious" asked the ATF to explain the new jobs and to confirm whether or not McMahon, Newell and Voth had been promoted. The ATF's acting director Kenneth E. Melson, told the Oversight and Government Reform Committee staff that the jobs were not considered promotions because as no one received a raise in...

    I had Sean McClanahan of Iowa Firearms Coalition on The War on Guns radio show last week to talk about the college student who applied for a concealed carry permit only to be called by a representative of the University of Iowa Threat Assessment Team—it seems the sheriff is in the habit of informing on students to the administration. In his reporting on that outrageous story, Sean also mentioned that Iowa City is a “nuclear weapons free zone.” That struck me as typical and expected for the anti-defense crowd—at least it’s consistent, for a change—so I decided to look up...

    For the time being these attacks seem to be limited to teenagers, but it won’t be long before we see professional criminal organizations begin to use them to coordinate higher-end robberies or even vendettas against others. As was pointed out in the afforementioned article, researchers suggest that it takes only 5% of a group to influence the actions of the other 95%. When the call goes out, the mob will act without even knowing why – they just will. This is exactly what happened in Wisconsin when they began vandalizing fair storefronts and robbing them, eventually turning their attention to...

    I was not receiving enough concise information on Fast and Furious to truly understand it. Then I discovered Michele McPhee on WRKO and her podcasts. She is not a fluffy gal, and if you can get past her accent, she is brilliant. If you listen to the July 12 podcast of 'Should Eric Holder be held responsible for Fast and Furious' she really makes sense of why this is so serious. She has other podcasts which have really enlightened and educated me on the subject. I am also furious, very very furious.
