Burglars in Houston stuff homeowner in a closet. Unfortunately for the burglars, the closet was a gun closet. Things did not go well (for the burglars) after that.
Detroit is broke – but only for the little people. “Four trustees of Detroit’s two public pension funds are heading to a Hawaiian beach resort this weekend with their $22,000 tab paid for by the funds, which are mired in claims of mismanagement and said to be at least $600 million underfunded.” Eleventy!
Creepy Peeping Tom artist selling photos of his neighbors inside their own apartments. And the prices are steep. He’s asking as much as $7,500 for some of them. New York, New York: the only place in the world where large sodas are banned and photos from perverts are prized.
When pencil pushers attack. “The big-government model depends on having scrupulously honest bureaucrats. How’s that working out?” Same as it ever was – sucky. “It is said that power corrupts, but actually it’s more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power.” ~David Brin
Woodward: ‘I Would Not Dismiss Benghazi,’ Similar to Watergate: While we appreciate the direction Woodward is leaning in we must ask that he re-examine the premise. Watergate is similar to Benghazi in the way that a cup of water is similar to a flood. And the last time we checked Watergate didn’t have a body count.
I, pencil. “…nobody knows how to make a pencil. Nobody is in charge of the operation, and nobody understands it end to end. From the assembly-line worker to the president of the pencil company, thousands or millions of people have tiny, discrete pieces of knowledge about the process, but no coordinating authority organizes their efforts.” Nobody knows how to make a healthcare system either. The simple pencil illustrates why central planning can never work. Obamacare, too.
IRS executive responsible for tax exempt scandal got huge bonuses and a promotion. Now Sarah Hall Ingram is in charge of IRS enforcement of Obamacare. No, sorry, this isn’t a joke. Once she proved she was a dependable vampire they put her in charge of the blood supply.
Obama: I Have ‘Complete Confidence’ In Holder: So do we. Complete confidence that he’ll shelter racist thugs, use the power of his office to persecute those on Obama’s “enemies list” and possibly be responsible for a few more deaths brought about by the guns that he gave to Mexican drug lords.
Report: IRS denied tax-exempt status to pro-lifers on behalf of Planned Parenthood. “…the IRS agent told the group to send a letter to the IRS with the entire board’s signatures stating that, under perjury of the law, they do not picket/protest or organize groups to picket or protest outside of Planned Parenthood.” Why not just make them swear a loyalty oath to Barack Obama? It’s what all the other advanced, enlightened countries do…
Obama calls in Marines – To keep him and Turkish PM dry from rain. Well, he’s really not good with umbrellas, among other things.
Report: Justice Department’s witness protection program loses track of two ‘known or suspected terrorists.’ Expect to hear the duet of Obama and Holder singing their new hit song ‘We didn’t, know and we don’t remember,’ any day now. Their witness protection safe house should have been at GITMO.
White House’s Benghazi email dump shows critical two-day gap. “…exclude the critical emails between administration officials that were sent during the crucial first two days after the deadly jihadi attack that killed four Americans last September.” A two-day gap? Gee, Tricky Dick only had an eighteen-minute gap in his tapes – Obama is a shoe-in for the Nobel Gap Prize.
Suspect: Boston bombing was payback for hits on Muslims. What? You mean it wasn’t because they were just two poor Muslim kids having trouble assimilating? It’s going to be a rough day at Media Matters trying to come up with excuses for these terrorists.
NBC NEWS HOSTS: WHITE SUPREMACY MOTIVATES OBAMA’S CRITICS. Matthews must think every Republican is running around in white sheets saying ‘Save yo Confederate money boys! The South’s gonna rise again!’
A small business owner explains the hard facts of Obamacare to employees. Actual memo sent by small business owner to his employees regarding the changes necessitated due to Obamacare. Even delves into the history of how we got where we are today – the system where employers are the primary provider of health insurance arose as an unintended consequence of 1940s wage controls. Long but worth reading if you have the time.
Venezuela to import 50M rolls of toilet paper after government claims it’s wiped out. “Blaming political opponents for the shortfall, as it does for other shortages…” Yep, gotta be a result of “Big Toilet Paper” doing their evil works again, because nothing is ever enlightened gubbermint’s fault.
Did the IRS try to swing election to Obama? “The Tea Party caused a huge landslide and then suddenly seemed to go silent, right around the time of this harassment.” So said a Wall St. Journal reader. And don’t forget Occupy Wall St, an organized leftist kabuki. The Obama mob makes Tricky Dick Nixon’s gang look like a bunch of amateurs.
MEDIA MATTERS DISTRIBUTES TALKING POINTS TO DEFEND DOJ SPYING ON AP REPORTERS. We wonder if any of this information was getting kicked up to Darth Soros? Below are Media Matters members getting their morning talking points.
Would You Believe The Administration Got Phone Records of The House Of Representatives? Obama is becoming the gift that keeps on giving. Will Speaker John Boehner finally get ticked off enough to impeach? We doubt it.
WHITE HOUSE RELEASES BENGHAZI EMAILS: SEE THEM HERE. They’re probably disappointed they couldn’t spin it to Libyan NRA card carrying Christian white male teaparty KKK members.
Obama “fires” acting IRS commissioner in attempt to look like he’s taking action on scandal. Treasury Sec’y Jack Lew asked for and received the resignation of acting IRS chief Steve Miller. It turns out that Miller said in an email to his staff that he was going to leave in early June anyway. The sacrificial lamb was dead already. Another big nothing from President No There There.
NBC news reporter: AP scandal angers one of Obama’s “most important constituencies – the press”. “Given that, said Myers, ‘it’s hard to imagine they would have green-lighted this thing.’” And given that, it’s hard to imagine anyone believing “the press” are neutral actors ever again after this Bidenesque gaffe. Thanks for the “heads up” (her butt, that is.) [Video at the link.]
Poop foam causing explosions on hog farms. The manure pits underneath Midwest hog finishing barns are foaming so aggressively it’s oozing up through the slats in the floors… and sometimes exploding. Which the hogs bitterly resent. No word thus far from university researchers about whether similar foaming exists under the U.S. Capitol.
Politico: D.C. turns on Obama. “Establishment Democrats, never big fans of this president to begin with, are starting to speak out. And reporters are tripping over themselves to condemn lies, bullying and shadiness in the Obama administration.” Rush Limbaugh made mention of this – if it comes to a choice between defending Obama and defending thier big government crony capitalism goodie dispenser machine, Obama is toast. Even Chris Tingles and his fellow nanny state shills are on board with that…
IRS faces class action lawsuit over theft of 60 million medical records. “…an unnamed HIPAA-covered entity in California is suing the IRS, alleging that some 60 million medical records from 10 million patients were stolen by 15 IRS agents. The personal health information seized on March 11, 2011, included psychological counseling, gynecological counseling, sexual/drug treatment and other medical treatment data.” Drunk on power – it’s like they can’t help themselves, isn’t it?
