    They wanted him dead. For years, a clandestine U.S. intelligence team had tracked a man they knew was high in the leadership of al Qaeda — an operative some believed had a hand in plotting the gruesome 2009 suicide attack in Afghanistan that killed seven CIA officers. Their pursuit was personal, and by early 2014, according to a source directly involved in the operation, the agency had the target under tight drone surveillance. “We literally had a bead on this guy’s head and just needed authorization from Washington to pull the trigger,” said the source. Then something unexpected happened. While...

    Khawam not only tapped her military connections in her custody battle but also invoked broader contacts as she sought greater access to her son. In emails with her ex-husband, Khawam wrote that Senator Kerry asked about the son and whether he would be coming to Martha's Vineyard in the summer of 2012. She also wrote that Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island invited the son to a summer clambake in the state, and that the son "would greatly appreciate attending this family clambake." Included in the court file is what appears to be a handwritten note from Whitehouse, writing, "I...

    Our federal lawsuit against the DOJ bureaucracy over the secret meeting between former Attorney General Lynch and former President Clinton has already unearthed documents proving the FBI lied that it had “no” documents, that the media was colluding with the Obama DOJ to bury the story, and that AG Lynch (AKA Elizabeth Carlisle) was using a secret email address to conduct official business. Now we’ve uncovered that the White House was involved. On the afternoon of June 29, 2016, two days after the Clinton-Lynch meeting, senior DOJ officials forwarded an email containing a transcript of AG Lynch’s press availability where...

    Hello Everyone, On Tuesday night, I participated in a national conference call with the Executive Director, President and Chief Counsel of True The Vote - who, along with the Heritage Foundation, NumbersUSA, the NRA and even left leaning orgs like the ACLU, AARP and Sierra Club, are strongly opposing new, draconian IRS arbitrary rules designed to punish (mostly) those outside of the direct sphere of the White House and the Democrat Party's influence - i.e., Tea Party, Libertarian, the left that is not in Obama's camp, etc. I have a special request. I've published an article on Communities Digital News...
  • The 21st Century “Know-Nothing” President

    07/10/2013 8:49:26 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 14 replies ^ | July 10, 2013 | Bob Barr
    For a few years during the middle of the 19th Century, a secretive political party rose to prominence in American politics, spurred by a cultural fear of new immigrants from Europe. Membership in the party was tightly limited, and when members were questioned about the party’s activity, they were only to respond: “I know nothing.” Today, more than a century and a half later, we have an adherent of this “know nothing” political philosophy in the White House. President Barack Obama’s standard response to questions about key problems facing his Administration is, “I know nothing.” Obama’s plea of ignorance has...

    You can always count on the White House to react strongly to “internal” threats. Yes, the folks who could care less who is blowing up whom in Syria, Libya or Boston, takes people who snitch on them very seriously. Their newest weapon is a program called “Inside Threat,” which, according to McClatchy, is designed not to just to clamp down on classified leaks, but rather to make sure ANY unauthorized disclosure of ANY information that make them look bad will leave a mark on the miscreant leaker. Given the proclivities of the administration to impale themselves on the sharp edge...

    Technically, I don’t own it. My name’s not on the deed, but it belongs to me. It belongs to me as much it belongs to President Obama. It also belongs to every American… or it’s supposed to. It’s called The People’s House. I urge you not to take my word for it. Take the First Lady’s words, as found on the Official White House web site.

    It's most gratifying that people are beginning to wake up to the bullying tactics of the White House toward those in the press who occasionally stray from the government-owned media model, but this has been going on for a while. Veteran reporter Bob Woodward has said in interviews with Politico and CNN that a White House official warned him he would "regret" publishing a story reporting that the sequestration was President Obama's idea. "(The White House aide) yelled at me for about a half-hour," said Woodward. The aide later apologized to Woodward in an email and claimed he was...
  • Shameful: WH Posts Videos of Kids Advocating Gun Control

    The Obama administration has taken exploiting children to a new low. On Thursday, the White House posted four YouTube videos of children reading letters to the president about finding a solution to the gun violence problem (the same kids sitting behind him on Wednesday). In Hinna’s video, for example, she says, “Can we stop using guns? I think if there are no guns on the street no one could get hurt. Bullets don’t have eyes, it can hurt anyone. I’m really scared of guns and criminals around the world. I love my country and I want everyone to be happy...
  • Who Is White House Visitor Hisham Altalib?

    On Friday, March 30, 2012, Hisham Y. Altalib visited the White House. According to visitor logs, Altalib was received by Joshua DuBois, the director of President Obama's Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Four days later, White House officials welcomed a foreign delegation of the radical Sharia-enforcing Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt. The White House meeting with overseas Muslim Brotherhood leaders was reported in April by a few mainstream journalists and questioned loudly by conservative media. But the White House confab in March with U.S.-based Altalib -- which appears to be a prep session with the global Muslim Brotherhood's American...

    EXCERPT Sorry for delay in getting back to you. -personal information not included- Situation very fluid RE elections, WH, Obama, etc. Received something you may find interesting RE First Lady. M.O. has become increasingly aggressive w/staff at WH. Recent blowout took place involving First Lady screaming (exact word used) at staff member. Said something to effect – “You are either with us or against us. One or the other.” Also heard to say that “the country doesn’t deserve us” to more than one member of WH. Apparently M.O. convinced Emmanuel has staff leaking information to him or fears that. Not...

    Washington - The makeover of the Oval Office has been widely panned in press reports and on the blogosphere for being too casual and for its bland color palate but White House press secretary Robert Gibbs doesn't expect President Obama to weigh in anytime soon. (Snip) In an apparent effort to head off criticism, the White House pointed out that all of the materials and furniture came from U.S.-based companies, and that taxpayers won't foot the bill. These kinds of projects have always been funded by the White House Historical Association, with money from the Presidential Inaugural Committee.

    In a move that puts a cloud over transparency, White House officials are blocking access to the lists of the names of visitors to the White House. The practice, carried over from the Bush administration, argues the public does not need to know who comes calling at the Executive Mansion, even for policy purposes. "We are deeply disappointed," said Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington spokeswoman Anne Weismann, whose group is suing to get the records. "The president, who has committed his administration to transparency and accountability, now takes the position of the Bush administration that the public is...

First Lady Michelle Obama will be the hostess for the White House Jazz Studio, the first in a series of three planned music education sessions this year at the White House, with the next two featuring as-yet unnamed country and classical musicians as guest instructors. For the kickoff event, five members of the Marsalis family are on the...

    President Barack Obama warmly welcomed trade union leaders into the White House as he reversed restrictions on organised labour set up by the Bush administration. Promising to "level the playing field" for workers, he offered the most pro-union sentiments heard from a US president for many years. "I do not view the labour movement as part of the problem. To me, it's part of the solution," said Mr Obama, who was accused of being a Socialist by the Republican Right during the election campaign. He was speaking at the launch of a Task Force for Middle Class and Working Families...

Barack Obama was about to speak. “Yesterday, the crowd was polite to Sen. John McCain here at the National Urban League Conference. But, today, for Sen. Obama, it’s more of a love fest!” reported one excited CBS Radio newsman, among the horde of reporters observing the crowd waiting for Obama. He was right. People were waiting in line as early as 7...
