    ... Singer’s experience is shared by virtually every journalist on the government beat, from the White House on down. They can recite tales with similar outlines: An agency spokesman — frequently a political appointee — rejects the reporter’s request for interviews, offers partial or nonresponsive replies, or delays responding at all until after the journalist’s deadline has passed. Interview requests that are granted are closely monitored, reporters say, with a press “minder” sitting in. Some agencies require reporters to pose their questions by e-mail, a tactic that enables officials to carefully craft and vet their replies. Tensions between reporters and...

    Dr. Ben Carson, the brain surgeon turned popular political analyst, told WND Obama administration officials are “acting like the Gestapo” with the Justice Department indictment of Dinesh D’Souza coupled with the Internal Revenue Service’s political targeting of the administration’s critics. “I believe we are dealing with an extremely corrupt administration,” he said. Dr. Carson himself became the subject of an IRS audit after criticizing Barack Obama’s policies at the annual National Prayer Breakfast in Washington last year.

    Breitbart - Big Government ^ | October 4, 2013 | Ben Shapiro
    On Thursday, the Pisgah Inn, which holds a concession on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Asheville, North Carolina, announced that it would defy the National Park Service’s order to close up, and would open doors for business on Friday. On Friday morning, NPS rangers showed up, lights swirling, to close down the business and turn away its customers, supposedly thanks to the government shutdown. Pisgah Inn receives no federal money, and according to owner Bruce O’Connell, who spoke exclusively to Breitbart News, “All we do is pay the government money. We don’t take anything from them.” It is located on...
  • Obama’s Terrifying Vision of a ‘Smarter’ Government

    President Obama is all excited about this brand new thing he’s thought of, after four years in office, that no one has ever thought of before. He’s going to make the government smarter and more efficient. And he’s really going to do it. He even has a hashtag for the Twitters—#SmarterGov—and everything. And despite a few obvious problems with the plan—like in the new, smarter government, where is Joe Biden going to work?—Obama is really going at this one with childlike glee. He wants to make the government leaner, quicker, and more intelligent. Unstoppable. And that’s about the most terrifying...

    The “tonight’s news” referred to by The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza comes via the New York Times: Wow, tonight's news dramatically escalates the war between DOJ and Fox. Somebody is not telling the whole truth.— Ryan Lizza (@RyanLizza) May 27, 2013 News Corporation said on Sunday that it had no record of being notified by the Justice Department nearly three years ago of a subpoena for the telephone records of a reporter at its Fox News cable channel [James Rosen]. The company’s chief legal counsel at the time also said that he had never seen material from the government related...

    Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura is suing the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration, saying full-body scans and pat-downs at airport checkpoints are violating his rights. Ventura filed his lawsuit Monday in federal court in Minnesota. He says the new security measures violate his right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures.
  • (Video) Jackboot to the Throat--FDA Claims Citizens Have No Right of Access to Certain Foods

    Conservative Examiner ^ | 5/23/2010 | Anthony G. Martin
    In yet another arrogant display of the federal government's jackboot to the throat of America and of its troubling disregard for the rights of citizens, the Food and Drug Administration now claims that Americans have no fundamental inherent right of access to certain foods. The agency also claims that Americans do not have a fundamental right to grow their own food, to sell it as they see fit, or to engage in contractual agreements with other citizens in forming food coops. Neighborhood food coops, such as this one, The Lots O'Greens, in Detroit, would be banned under new FDA rules....
  • Will Obama speak out for Protesters in Iran? (He said he would)

    "President Obama promised last week that America will speak out on behalf of those who live under the “dark cloud of tyranny.” Okay. That’s nice. So, thousands of those people living under the dark Iranian cloud of tyranny are protesting in Iran today. What exactly will Obama do to speak out on their behalf?... OBAMA AT WEST POINT: "” And we must make it clear to every man, woman and child around the world who lives under the dark cloud of tyranny that America will speak out on behalf of their human rights, and tend to the light of freedom,...

    His speeches are inspirational, he's given "hope" that he's going to bring about "change." He really wants to help everyone. Obama will preside over an administration that will make everything "fair." Hmmm, let's skip vacuous platitudes and get to some meaty postulates. I found this quote by Thomas Jefferson: "A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor and bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government. " I think I had actually heard that one and...
