  • CBS and Benghazi: What’s the Larger Relevance?

    ... Well, it’s nice to see CBS bow to pressure from the left for a change instead of the right. See, Davies just published a book under the Morgan Jones pseudonym about Benghazi with an imprint that is a division of Simon & Schuster, which is owned by...CBS. So maybe 60 Minutes was pressured inside to hawk this guy’s story. So it’s already an interesting corporate media story and a black eye for Black Rock from that perspective. But what is the larger political relevance of all this? Well, Google “Dylan Davies Hillary Clinton” and you’ll see soon enough. Wingland...

    Reports that the Internal Revenue Service pays billions of dollars a year to those who don't deserve them were dismissed by IRS officials as “unimportant” and “a distraction from more important concerns.” An Inspector General's report issued this week revealed that the IRS paid over $4 billion to identity thieves. Examples of the fraudulent payments include 655 tax refunds sent to a single address in Lithuania and 343 to a single address in Shanghai, China. The massive number of refunds sent to single addresses might be expected to set off “red flags” at the Agency. Commissioner, Daniel Werfel said “they...

    President Obama's narcissistic hits just keep on coming. Yesterday, we noted that in his interview with NBC's Chuck Todd, President Obama cast himself as the victim of the ObamaCare mess, complaining that "I've been burned" by the bad website. In a new clip from the interview that Todd aired during today's Daily Rundown, President Obama bragged "I can guarantee you that I have been more deeply involved in our intelligence operations on a whole set of areas where there real threats against us than just about any President." As with his victim whine, the prez caught himself and amended his...

    “60 Minutes” correspondent Lara Logan apologized Friday for what CBS News is now acknowledging was a flawed report last month about the Benghazi attacks. “The most important thing to every person at ’60 Minutes’ is the truth, and today the truth is that we made a mistake, and that’s very disappointing for any journalist, it’s very disappointing for me,” Logan said on “CBS This Morning. “Nobody likes to admit that they made a mistake, but if you do, you have to stand up and take responsibility and you have to say you were wrong, and in this case we were...

    House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is giving a jolt to the congressional probe of the IRS’s targeting of Tea Party groups with a new subpoena that was issued late Thursday night. Issa and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) have for months sought documents from the Treasury Department that they say would detail a wide range of interactions with the IRS well before the public learned that conservative groups were singled out for extra scrutiny. The subpoena, the second that Issa has issued since the controversy broke, came as House Republicans are struggling to find any officials outside of the IRS...

    So Obama wasn’t aware we’d spent years spying on our ally Germany. Color me unsurprised. Throughout a career as community activist and several campaigns, he apparently didn’t know that numerous people and publications attributed his birthplace as Kenya. Rev. Wright, his spiritual leader of over a decade made numerous inflammatory sermons denigrating whites and damning the United States. What was the reaction? Barry wasn’t there those Sundays. Obama wasn’t aware about Benghazi. Hadn’t heard Americans under heavy attack were begging for relief during the firefight. Never knew rescue planes were assigned and mysteriously recalled. Where was he during all this?...

    The Internal Revenue Service issued $4 billion in fraudulent tax refunds last year to people using stolen identities, with some of the money going to addresses in Bulgaria, Lithuania and Ireland, according to an inspector general's report released Thursday. The IRS sent a total of 655 tax refunds to a single address in Lithuania, and 343 refunds went to a lone address in Shanghai. In the U.S., more fraudulent returns went to Miami than any other city. Other top destinations were Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta and Houston.

    "[Obama] was walking into a huge, huge challenge. Like a lot of people who read and care and follow, I can't say that I agree with every decision, but I feel his leadership has been sound, I feel like the administration has worked in constructive ways and continues to," Howard said. "I certainly have no reservations of my having supported him." Howard said governing is hard for anyone when politicians go to partisan extremes, as the country saw with the recent federal government shutdown. The director said he champions a "militant middle" where people can come together and compromise their...
  • History Will Judge Obama on Actions, Not Words

    History judges a leader exclusively through his actions and their ultimate results rather than through fleeting words. It appears that U.S. President Barack Obama is finally putting the brakes on his mouth after flooring it down Hope-and-Change Highway for most of his tenure. Remember the Syrian crisis that dominated chatter for months before all but vanishing? Recall how critics were talking about grievous incompetence and even possible impeachment? Fast-forward to today, and just try to start a conversation with, "Obama really botched the situation in Syria." Now that the Russians have overseen a plan for the destruction of that country's...

    Americans are far from strangers to presidential lying. Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon excelled at it. Both, however, were liars of what we could call self-defense. They were guys that got caught — Clinton with his serial infidelities and Nixon covering up a break-in for an election he had already won by a landslide. Both men too were cowards. They took the easy, and probably most self-destructive, way out — lying. Barack Obama is another matter. His lies are not mainly for self-defense (although Benghazi has elements of that). They are lies of ideological volition. He lies to get his...

The Wichita Area Association of Realtors addresses the rumor in its weekly report today. “Thankfully, this rumor is completely false as Congress specifically prohibited the IRS from filing liens against real property to enforce the individual mandate to purchase health insurance,” the report says.

    CBS News reports that the Obama Administration was warned before al-Qaeda attacked the Consulate in Benghazi. Al-Qaeda had posted its three top targets in Libya on its website. These targets were the Red Cross, the British, and then the Americans in Benghazi. By July of 2012 the first two targets had already been hit. In the summer of 2012, Lieutenant Colonel Andy Wood, one of the top American security officials in Libya, warned both Ambassador Stevens and the State Department that Benghazi would be next. The CBS revelations were dismissed as “Monday morning quarterbacking” by Secretary of State John Kerry....

"I think the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution has been trod on," North told a press conference before addressing a crowd of 350 at a young Republicans' dinner at the Davidson Center for Space Technology. North added that "the Republicans in Congress are complicit by not insisting on a select committee to investigate not just NSA, but Benghazi, the IRS, the spying on Americans, enemies' lists being...
