  • Oversight committee votes to hold Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress

    Daily Caller ^ | 4/10/14 | Christopher Bedford
    The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform voted on Thursday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress. The committee’s approval paves the way for a vote in the full House of Representatives. Lerner is accused of leading an effort to target the tax status of conservative organizations, while giving liberal organizations a pass. Lerner previously pled the Fifth Amendment when questioned by the committee on May 22, 2013. The Fifth Amendment protects against self-incrimination. But since Lerner had previously professed her innocence in a statement, a little over one month later the committee voted that...

    There’s a reason popular culture matters. It’s because it is not what politicians say that changes minds. The opinions of your fellow human beings are formed through their interactions with technology. From the moment you first get your news from Twitter to the hours you while away looking at shared opinions and entertainment on Facebook, from the stories that are carefully selected for your television news to the radio commercials you listen to, from the pop-up “surveys” you see on your monitor to the lyrics in the pop songs you play on Pandora, your default opinions are formed in this...

    Annoyed by Americans who resist the massive, corporation-backed push for a governmental takeover of healthcare, Organizing for Action sent out a Friday email blast touting a new bumper sticker mocking the tea party, titled “Don’t Tread on My Obamacare.” “Show the world you’re proud of health care reform,” OFA’s site headline reads. The sticker is shown below in a series of photos: stuck onto the back of a green smart car, slapped onto the front of a recycled cardboard journal and covering the Apple logo on a laptop at a rakish angle, clearly meant to convey the supporter’s snarky yet...

    Organizing for Action is revamping its fundraising practices and fired a fundraiser amid questions about whether the group was promising access to Obama administration officials in exchange for donations. Samantha Maltzman, a top fundraiser for the Democratic group with strong ties to President Obama, resigned from the organization after NBC News obtained emails between her and Dr. Munr Kazmir, a New Jersey businessman, explicitly listing prices to attend a summit last week with the president. The emails conflicted with a pledge by former Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, who wrote in an op-ed last year that “we can't and we...

"I actually think I'm OK." "I gotta 'Get Covered,'" he added, referring to his signature health care law, which prompted applause and cheers from his supporters. Obama praised his supporters for promoting Obamacare. "The work you’re doing is God’s work," he said. "It is hard work."

He’s “a metrosexual hipster in a plaid onesie” scowled National Review’s Charles Cooke, a “vaguely androgynous, student-glasses-wearing, Williamsburg hipster.” He’s also “carefully ambi-racial.” Pajama boy can’t even fight, Cooke’s colleague, Jim Geraghty, surmises. “My money is on the guy from Big Bang Theory once they throw down in a slap fight,” writes Geraghty, a grown man calling someone else a child as he imagines a fight between two fictional characters. “An insufferable man-child,” writes Rich Lowry at Politico, who...

Clearly, this strategy isn’t selling even with the more sympathetic members of the Morning Joe panel.

And it’s true that the image of a smug, supercilious little creep does give one the willies, as Jonah points out. But something Jay just said also ties in here: “Becoming a conservative and growing up are to a degree the same thing.” Among the many appalling traits of the modern Left — and they are legion — their fatuous air of unearned moral superiority has got to be among the most annoying.

He is the face of a web ad that is the latest effort by the Obama team to leverage the holidays for conversation about Obamacare. “Wear pajamas,” the ad reads. “Drink hot chocolate. Talk about getting health insurance. #GetTalking.” And, sure enough, Pajama Boy is wearing pajamas—a zip-up onesie in classic Lamar Alexander plaid—and drinking hot chocolate. He is in his twenties, sporting hipster glasses he could have bought at Warby Parker and an expression of self-satisfied ironic amusement....

In mid-October, President Obama cited single mother Jessica Sanford as an exchange success story after she wrote to him after being able to sign up for insurance in early October. She's since learned that her state's system miscalculated her tax credit and that her out-of-pocket costs will be substantially higher than expected.

    The Obamacare exchange for Washington, D.C. has been using its official Twitter account to tweet out support for Organizing for Action (OFA) materials. “Our friends @OFA_DC are looking to hear your experience with #Obamacare. Share your feedback with them,” the official @DCHealthLink Twitter account tweeted earlier this week, with a link to a website survey at my.BarackObama.com—OFA’s website. After filling out the OFA survey, respondents are then prompted with an ask to donate money to the organization. The official @DCHealthLink Twitter account has also retweeted an OFA tweet praising Obamacare, which as of 4:30 p.m. on Friday has the OFA...

    President Barack Obama is using the disastrous crash of his Obamacare website to extract cash and volunteer hours from his supporters. “By now, you’ve probably heard that the website has not worked as smoothly as it was supposed to,” Obama told his supporters in an email sent out late Tuesday. “That’s why I need your help,” he said, in a video pitch that links to an online fundraiser. “The other side has already spent a whopping $400 million in anti-Obamacare TV ads,” says the language on the fundraiser site. “We don’t have to beat that, but we need to have...

    The White House attempt to turn Organizing for America into a major political force like the right-leaning Tea Party has suffered a second humiliation in just a few months. In August, not a single person showed up for a Climate Change rally. Tuesday, fewer than two-dozen OFA protestors showed up at a "Budget Shutdown Day of Action" rally on Capitol Hill.

    As Twitchy reported, the Obamacare poster boy’s been busted for falsely claiming that he successfully purchased health insurance for him and his father early this week. Now that he’s been put on the defensive, he’s trying to change his story. You might think he couldn’t look much worse than he already does … and you’d be wrong. Henderson, you see, has a history of lazily accusing others of lying: -snip Turns out he’s not the poster boy for Obamacare … he’s the poster boy for projection!

    Reason ^ | 10/4/13 | Peter Suderman
    Chad Henderson is the media’s poster boy for Obamacare. Reporters struggled this week to find individuals who said they had been able to enroll in one of the law’s 36 federally run health-insurance exchanges. That changed yesterday, when they found Henderson, a 21-year-old student and part-time child-care worker who lives in Georgia and says that he successfully enrolled himself and his father Bill in insurance plans via the online exchange administered at healthcare.gov. But in an exclusive phone interview this morning with Reason, Chad's father Bill contradicted virtually every major detail of the story the media can't get enough of....
  • Chad Henderson Exposes The Media (Lied to LSM about enrolling in ObamaCare)

    Mediaite ^ | 10/4/13 | Noah Rothman
    There is no greater hatred than that born out of affection spurned and trust betrayed. Yesterday, the media loved Chad Henderson. Today, they hate him. -snip- Henderson’s story was particularly attractive. He was precisely what the media, and the White House, needed: a young, ostensibly healthy individual willing to pay a substantial portion of the meager income into the system so that it can support older, more chronically ill patients who will be partaking in health care services regularly. In the media’s rush to make a star out of Henderson, they failed to vet him thoroughly. Most of the press...

    Perhaps Republicans should abandon their efforts to defund Obamacare. Perhaps the best thing they could do is simply get out of the way. Chad Henderson became the poster boy for Obamacare overnight when he and his father appeared to be the only persons in America to successfully sign up for Obamacare. Legs were tingling over at Huffington Post: Three days into the first six months of enrollment on Obamacare's websites, the federal government won't say how many Americans have signed up so far amid widespread technical glitches. But at least one family was able to navigate the websites and sign...
  • Confirmation of Paid Democrat Trolls?

    American Thinker ^ | 5 Oct 13 | Randy Fardal
    On Thursday, Democrat tool Chad Henderson claimed to have enrolled in ObamaCare while most others' attempts failed. News organizations eagerly lapped up his story. Apparently, though, the story was "too good to check," because when someone finally did, it fell apart, discrediting Big Media, the Democrats, and ObamaCare. Conservative and libertarian websites now are reporting the corrected story, and even some Big Media outlets reluctantly are reporting it. But almost as devastating to the left is Mr. Henderson's confession that he is being paid to post pro-Democrat propaganda on the internet: Secondly, I work for an organization that pays me...

    Mercury News ^ | 10/4/13 | Amber Phillips
    A few days into the launch of Obamacare, a 21-year-old student from Georgia was one of the only people national media could find who had used online insurance exchanges. One of his hometown newspapers touted him as "The first person to sign up for Obamacare." And then 21-year-old Chad Henderson, a student from Georgia, became one of the most quoted people in the nation about Obamacare.
