Deflated President

I have to give credit to Rush for this idea: what if all the media marauders went after Obama for his myriad scandals the way they’re going after Bill Belichick for “Deflate-gate”?

It might read something like this:

OBAMA: I’ll start out by addressing the [IRS] issue here. When I came in Monday morning, I was shocked to learn of the news reports about the [harassment of conservative Americans]. I had no knowledge whatsoever of this situation until Monday morning.

The [Congress] is investigating [the VA scandal]. We have cooperated fully, quickly and completely with every request that they have made; [we] continue to be cooperative in any way that we can. I have no explanation for what happened. That’s what they’re looking into. So I can’t comment on what they’re doing. That’s something that you should talk to them about.

[I] really can’t think of anything that I would have done differently [about Fast & Furious], based on what I knew then, based on what I know now.

Again, I have no further comment on the [Congressional] investigation [on Benghazi] and I’ve told you all I know about the subject from my perspective.

Unleash the hounds!

Q: Aside from the [Congressional] investigation, in your own investigation, did you find whether anyone willfully –

OBAMA: I’ve told you everything I know.

Q: What do you say to your critics?

OBAMA: I have nothing – I don’t have an explanation.

Q: Not withstanding what you’ve said here today, there are a lot people who are questioning your integrity, saying you will win [elections] at all costs.

OBAMA: I’ve told you everything I know.

Q: What do you say to critics who are challenging your character, which seems to go well beyond [a dead ambassador]?

OBAMA: I’ve told you everything I know.

Q: Any message to the fans who are watching all of this and are upset by this?

OBAMA: I’ve told them everything I know. There’s nothing else I can add to it.

Q: What have you talked to Tom Brady about? I assume you’ve had conversations with Tom about this issue and what happened.

OBAMA: I have no explanation for what happened.

Q: Why do you think these controversies continue to follow you?

OBAMA: I don’t have any explanation for what happened.

Q: Is it possible that someone on your [regime], even though you may not know about it, might have deliberately altered the [emails]?

OBAMA: I don’t have any explanation for what happened. I’ve told you all I can tell you from my point of view and anything coming from the investigative side, from the [impeachment committee], needs to be directed toward them.

Q: Knowing how much you care about [ObamaCare], what’s it been like for you since you found out about [Jonathan Gruber’s remarks—plural] and what’s it been like trying to deal with [that s**t]?

OBAMA: I had no idea [who he was, besides the architect] and so forth and so on and all of that. That’s not something I have ever thought or concerned myself about…. So some of the things like that [Gruber’s] talked about, that have happened, I mean, I’m totally unaware of.

A boy can dream, can’t he?

Another Milhous in the White House

Seriously, it’s like 40 years ago, all over again:

In her memoir Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington, Attkisson looks back on the final years of her network career. One concludes from her book that Attkisson encountered more difficulty practicing her profession at CBS News during Obama’s tenure than at any other time. She reached an agreement for her departure from CBS News in March 2014, well before her contract was to expire.

The book’s subtitle refers to the difficulties Attkisson encountered in “Obama’s Washington.” The term is in part a euphemism for the Obama administration, but it also reflects the support for the administration within CBS News. The head of CBS News is David Rhodes, brother of Obama national-security adviser Ben Rhodes.

Let’s digest that for a moment. I write a lot about the Democrat-Media Complex, but this is as bad as it gets—tied, I suppose, with Al Sharpton on MSNBC, George Stephanopoulos on ABC, David Axelrod wherever he is, Mr. and Mrs. Jay Carney wherever they are, crony capitalist Jeffrey Immelt, head of GE (parent corporation of the the NBC networks), etc. ad nauseam.

Each of the scandals falls into a larger pattern of scandal management practiced by the Obama White House. (The reader can infer how the IRS scandal fits the pattern precisely to a T.) Her book is invaluable for how it analyzes and exposes this pattern, combining her reportage and her behind-the-scenes work at CBS News.

The pattern begins with blatant denials — bald lies — and stonewalling. Attkisson deftly articulates one of the bona fide occupational qualifications for service as a spokesperson in the Obama administration. Referring specifically to HHS spokeswoman Joanne Peters, whom Attkisson had caught lying to her, she writes: “It takes a certain kind of person to be untruthful and then display utter lack of contrition when caught.”

You say Joanne Peters, I hear Haldeman and Erlichman.

Also, rather than responding to straightforward inquiries, administration spokesmen pump reporters for the information they have so they can undermine it. Attkisson calls this technique “pump and mine.” The administration then plants slanted leaks to friendly bloggers and reporters; next, it characterizes any advances in the story as “old news.”

Attkisson also shows how the administration, using a technique she calls “controversialization,” disparages any sources and reporters who move the story forward. As she recounts in the book, Attkisson has extensive personal experience being at the receiving end of this technique.

She singles out Media Matters as the main outlet that moves administration spin into the mainstream media. As Attkisson demonstrates, however, the power of Media Matters derives from the complicity and cooperation of its many allies in the media, i.e., the many Obama allies in the media.

See above.

She writes:

Perhaps the greatest PR coup of all is that the administration’s expert spinners successfully lead the media by the nose down the path of concluding there’s no true controversy unless there’s a paper trail that lays blame directly on the president’s desk. Time and again, with each scandal and each damaging fact, Democrats and the White House read from the script that says, “there’s no evidence President Obama knew” or “there’s no evidence of direct White House involvement.” Anything short of a signed confession from the president is deemed a phony Republican scandal, and those who dare to ask questions are crazies, partisans, or conspiracy theorists. . . .

Under President Obama, the press dutifully regurgitates the line “no evidence of White House involvement,” ignoring the fact that if any proof exists, it would be difficult to come by under an administration that fails to properly respond to Freedom of Information Act requests, routinely withholds documents from Congress, and claims executive privilege to keep documents secret.

You say Barack Obama, I hear Richard Nixon.

Attkisson bookends her accounts of the Obama-administration scandals she covered with the story of what she describes as coordinated intrusions into her telephones and computers. She was working on the Benghazi story when a friendly source “connected to a three-letter agency” offered a surprising observation. “The administration is likely monitoring you — based on your reporting,” the source advised her. She had, in fact, been having troubles with her phones and computers, which were behaving oddly.

Three sets of experts — including experts hired by CBS — examined her computers. All reached the same conclusion: She was the victim of computer intrusion and monitoring. One expert found classified government documents secreted in her hard drive, though she had not placed them there and had nothing to do with them. She believes that they were placed there by the intruders for use against her at an appropriate time.

The Department of Justice has issued two statements on Attkisson’s case. In response to Attkisson’s first public mention of her experience, in the course of a radio interview, the Department of Justice said:

To our knowledge, the Justice Department has never “compromised” Ms. Attkisson’s computers, or otherwise sought any information from or concerning any telephone, computer, or other media device she may own or use.

You say Justice Department, I hear Justice Department.

Liaress of the Jungle

This post pales in comparison to the two below, but it’s worth reporting:

The leader of the agency charged with the ObamaCare rollout is stepping down after five years on the job.

Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS), announced her departure Friday, which will take effect next month.

Tavenner is leaving after five turbulent years overseeing the agency. Her tenure included the disastrous rollout of the government’s HealthCare.gov website as well as, most recently, an inflated tally of total ObamaCare enrollment.

Republicans on the House Oversight Committee last month grilled Tavenner about the miscount, which had helped push the first-year enrollment total for ObamaCare past 7 million — a milestone that was celebrated by the administration at the time.

Tavenner said some figures were “inadvertently” double-counted, an explanation that was greeted with deep skepticism from Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), whose staff identified the error.

“Tavenner had to go,” Issa wrote Friday in a statement provided first to The Hill.

“She presided over HHS as it deceptively padded the Obamacare enrollment numbers. It was a deplorable example of an agency trying to scam the American people. They weren’t successful this time because of Congressional oversight. We deserve better.”

And then there’s this:

Tavenner’s chief of staff, Aryana Khalid, also announced Friday that she would be leaving the agency.

The pair of departures come about a month after that of CMS’s deputy administrator, Cindy Mann. The agency’s No. 2 official left her post in January.

Maybe it doesn’t matter that no one’s left to run the damn program. As we’ve been noting, it’s in the hands of the IRS now.

As for the deception and the scam, it’s all part of the Obama strategy: lie all the time; they can’t catch you in all of them.

PS: The same IRS that empowered Lois Lerner, remember.

We Won WHAT???

There must be some mistake.

The U.S. Olympic Committee’s choice of Boston for its bid to host the 2024 Summer Games thrilled city and state leaders last night, but is expected to launch a vigorous debate over public spending, traffic and development to accommodate the 17-day global sports ?extravaganza.

Boston beat out the favorite Los Angeles, as well as San Francisco and Washington yesterday, to become the U.S. nominee for the 2024 Olympics. Mayor Martin J. Walsh and USOC officials plan a press conference this morning to release details of the bid.

“I think it’s terrific, and we’ve got some work to do,” Gov. Charlie Baker told the Herald last night.

Boston will now compete against other places believed to be seriously considering a bid, including Paris, Berlin, Istanbul and Johannesburg, and the International Olympic Committee is expected to make a final decision in 2017.

Boston? Boston?

It was so cold yesterday that the commuter trains weren’t running. So people had to drive. I can’t find a picture, but it looked something like this:

Except more cars and it was dark.

I’m naturally skeptical. Let’s hear from the other side:

They said we couldn’t clean up Boston Harbor. They said we couldn’t take down the Central Artery and build a third tunnel. They said we couldn’t host a Democratic National Convention.

They said we couldn’t win the World Series.

Actually, “they” was largely “we.”

Where would we be if we listened to our naysaying selves?

Now I am the first to admit hosting the Olympics sounds like a crazy idea, but we’re a region full of bright minds. We’ve done a lot of things people said could not be done. Not just cleaning the harbor, depressing a highway, winning the World Series — but also universal health care and gay marriage.

Really? You want to lead a rallying cry for the Olympics with ObamaCare? And the Big Dig?

Actually, what a great idea! The people who brought you the biggest construction boondoggle and the biggest government overreach in the history of the Republic now bid to bring you the Olympics. What could go wrong?

The Most Transparent Administration Evah!!

Journalist Sharyl Attkinsson suing Obama administration over hacked computers

Former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has sued the Justice Department over the hacking of her computers, officially accusing the Obama administration of illegal surveillance while she was reporting on administration scandals.

In a series of legal filings that seek $35 million in damages, Attkisson alleges that three separate computer forensic exams showed that hackers used sophisticated methods to surreptitiously monitor her work between 2011 and 2013.

“I just think it’s important to send a message that people shouldn’t be victimized and throw up their hands and think there’s nothing they can do and they’re powerless,” Attkisson said in an interview.

I genuinely hope she gets every penny of the 35 million, but I think that she won’t, that she’s wrong, and that we are indeed powerless. We voted to become powerless, by the way. It is comfortable and mindless, and whether BTL or I or you like it or hate it, it’s the way things are.

The Most Transparent, Ethical Administration EVAH!!

How cheap can they be bought?

The Obama administration overturned a ban preventing a wealthy, politically connected Ecuadorean woman from entering the United States after her family gave tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic campaigns, according to finance records and government officials.

The woman, Estefanía Isaías, had been barred from coming to the United States after being caught fraudulently obtaining visas for her maids. But the ban was lifted at the request of the State Department under former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton so that Ms. Isaías could work for an Obama fund-raiser with close ties to the administration.

It was one of several favorable decisions the Obama administration made in recent years involving the Isaías family, which the government of Ecuador accuses of buying protection from Washington and living comfortably in Miami off the profits of a looted bank in Ecuador.

Pass This Bill Now!

Not the stupid Cromnibus package. They can burn all 1600 pages, for all I care. Hand a copy and a match to all the homeless in DC.

Pass this bill now:

Advocates for greater openness in government were frustrated after Congress failed to update the Freedom of Information Act despite bipartisan support in the House and Senate.

Without a new law, government agencies are likely to continue stonewalling requests for records and other information, said Amy Bennett, assistant director of OpenTheGovernment.org, an advocacy group.

“The only thing that changes an agency’s behavior is an act of Congress,” she said.

The Senate approved a bill this week that would require federal agencies to have a presumption of openness when considering the release of government information. Under the bill, exemptions to withhold information would be reduced, and agencies operating under the act would have to make records available for public inspection in an electronic format.

The House passed a similar bill in February, but the two chambers could not agree on final language.

Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., said he was deeply disappointed that the House adjourned Friday without taking up the Senate bill, which Leahy co-sponsored with Sen John Cornyn, R-Texas.

Leahy said he thought House Republican leaders would support the measure as a way to increase oversight of the Obama administration and make the government more accountable and transparent.

Instead, Republicans “have chosen secrecy over sunlight,” he said.

Both sides want the bill passed, yet it’s not. Hmm.

Bennett, of the Open Government group, said there was “plenty of blame to go around” for the bill’s demise, including House Speaker John Boehner and the White House.

Grr. The IRS is still stonewalling investigations (plural). Gruber will have to be subpoenaed to open up his books. Get this thing done now.

Where Our $2,500 ObamaCare Savings Went

Yesterday I labeled Jonathan Gruber a hero for telling the truth about ObamaCare.

But I never said he wasn’t doing well by doing good!

When asked to provide details requested by the committee about $2.5 million in Obamacare related contracts he secured with an estimated eight states, He lawyered up. “Take it up with my counsel,” he said several times.

In addition, he refused to provide any examples of work product related to his Obamacare economic modeling carried out under a $400,000 sole source contract he obtained with the Department of Health and Human Services in 2009.

At the conclusion of the hearings, Issa promised that the incoming Chairman was likely to call Gruber back to provide that information, and that if the information was not forthcoming in 30 days, the Committee would subpoena Gruber for it.

Gruber also lawyered up when Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) asked him to show the work product from his Obamacare model in which he estimated how many people would lose their coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

“You can talk to my counsel,” Gruber responded to each question from Chairman Issa and several other Republican members of the committee who wanted to know details about the number and size of his Obamacare related contracts with state governments.

“My counsel says we complied with the committee,” Gruber told Issa when asked about his failure to provide the detailed list of federal and state contracts prior to his testimony.

“No, you didn’t,” Issa responded.

For someone as “glib” as Gruber, lawyering-up has gotta hurt.

But when staying quiet equates to staying out of prison, that’s motivation:

One week after he first requested billing details related to Jonathan Gruber’s contract with the state of Vermont, state Auditor Douglas Hoffer has yet to receive any information about the details of Gruber’s contract from the administration of Democratic Governor Peter Shumlin.

“Nothing yet,” Hoffer told Breitbart News in an email on Monday responding to our inquiry checking up on the Shumlin administration’s response to his information request.

One day before Gruber is scheduled to testify about “health law deceptions” before the federal House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, chaired by Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA), details of Gruber’s $280,000 contract with the state of Vermont remain shrouded in mystery.

Of course, we know Gruber well around here. He’s at MIT, and he was “architect” of RomneyCare.

Speaking of which:

The Massachusetts Medicaid program spent $35 million on questionable claims for health care provided to low-income immigrants, according to a critical report released Wednesday by state Auditor Suzanne Bump.

The findings reflect “serious weaknesses” in the agency’s claims processing system, Bump concluded, and illustrate the need for tighter controls.

The audit found that the state’s Medicaid agency, known as MassHealth, routinely paid for nonemergency medical care for roughly 45,000 immigrants from July 2011 through December 2012. The review identified 270,167 questionable or unallowed claims for services such as speech therapy, fluoride treatment, and physical therapy.

What, illegal alien kids are supposed to get cavities?

Yes, illegal:

Bump’s office examined Medicaid’s Limited Program and its payment of medical bills for this pool of immigrants, who are entitled to emergency medical services under the program’s rules. The auditors said they believe that roughly 89 percent of the immigrants were in the United States illegally during the time of the audit.

By my rough math, $31 million out of that $35 million went to elocution lessons for people with no business being here, let alone taking millions in taxpayer money.

But you don’t know the half of it:

But the Executive Office of Health and Human Services disputed much of the auditor’s findings regarding its coverage of medical treatments for immigrants.

“We respectfully disagree with the state auditor’s definition of emergency services, which would preclude coverage under this program for critical medical conditions including kidney failure, broken bones, ectopic pregnancy, appendicitis, aortic aneurysms, insulin for diabetics, and other life-threatening injuries and conditions,” the agency said in a statement.

“MassHealth is required under both state and federal law to cover these emergency services for families and children who would otherwise be eligible for Medicaid but for their immigration status,” the agency’s statement said.

Hey, I don’t want to deny insulin to diabetics, either. But if immigration status isn’t relevant, why should geography be? Why aren’t we Bay Staters providing insulin to diabetics in Tegucigalpa without those families and children having to schlep up here? Give us your tired, your poor, your ectopic pregnancies, and aortic aneurysms. Forget hi-tech coders, we want sick people. Expensively sick people.

In government-run health care, illegal aliens and Jonathan Gruber thrive. The rest of us have to wait for the next available doctor.

The Fall of the American Republic, Pt. CCCXLVI

Obama wastes billions on a lemon of a computer system—and it’s not even the one you’re thinking of!

Senior officials at the Social Security Administration (SSA) tried to hide a damning report on a $300 million computer system that lawmakers have called a “boondoggle” in order to protect President Obama’s nominee to lead the agency, a whistleblower claimed in an interview with FoxNews.com.

Whistleblower Michael Keegan told FoxNews.com that McKinsey & Company, a consulting firm, issued a draft report in December 2013 saying the agency had spent $288 million over six years for a new computer system processing disability claims that has yet to launch.

But Keegan said he was present at a meeting of senior officials in May of this year where they decided to sit on the report as long as Carolyn Colvin’s nomination for commissioner was pending.

“They hid the report,” he told FoxNews.com.

They’ll release it on Friday. Some Friday.

Keegan spoke with FoxNews.com after Republican senators threatened earlier this week to block Colvin’s nomination until a probe of the computer project is done. Keegan, who worked as associate commissioner for facilities and left the agency earlier this year, explained that he brought his concerns to Congress over the summer.

Several top-ranking lawmakers have been beating the drum about the $300 million computer system since the summer, including about the possibility of a cover-up.

House oversight committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and other lawmakers wrote in July that whistleblowers had told them “senior agency staff placed a very close hold” on the report to make sure details were kept “secret” until after Colvin’s confirmation. They called these claims “deeply disturbing.”

When will the Republicans in Congress grow the stones to stop Obama, rather than merely warn Obama to stop? Are only eunuchs elected to Congress?

Real men run for governor:

Texas is leading a group of 17 states — all but two with Republican governors — that are suing to block President Barack Obama’s executive overhaul of U.S. immigration and deportation rules.

The state’s incoming governor, Greg Abbott, announced the effort to have courts block Obama from implementing the actions he announced last month during a Wednesday afternoon news conference.
“The constitution prescribes immigration policy be fixed by Congress — not by presidential fiat,” said Abbott, the Texas attorney general who won the governor’s race in November and has since become the highest-profile GOP critic of Obama’s immigration policies.

He said Obama’s decision to stop deportations for undocumented immigrants who are the parents of U.S. citizens — the centerpiece of the executive action — is “a decision to openly tolerate” violations of the U.S. law.

“Texas is uniquely qualified to challenge the president’s executive order,” Abbott said. He pointed to Obama’s 2012 order deferring the deportation of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children and had lived in the country for years, and said Texas has seen an influx of immigrants since then.

“Basically, we are asking for the court to require the president to go through the prescribed constitutional process of enforcing laws passed by Congress rather than making them up himself,” Abbott said.

Abbott said the states joining Texas in the lawsuit are Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

How hard was that to say? It’s not racist or xenophobic. And I’d say 17 states—a third—is a pretty big sample size.

We Get Results

But when we teased you yesterday about your plummeting (or is it soaring?) on the list of most corrupt nations, China, we were just kidding around. Sort of.

Don’t be so sensitive!

Ex-security chief Zhou Yongkang, the most senior Chinese official to be investigated for corruption, has been arrested and expelled from the Communist Party, state media report.

The Supreme People’s Procuratorate, China’s top prosecuting body, said it had opened a formal probe against him.

Before he retired two years ago, Mr Zhou was the head of China’s vast internal security apparatus.

Many of his former associates and relatives also face corruption probes.

Mr Zhou was accused of several crimes, including “serious violations of party discipline”, “accepting large sums of bribes”, “disclosing party and state secrets” and “committing adultery with several women” as part of corrupt transactions, Xinhua news agency reported (in Chinese).

As long as they aborted any unwanted pregnancies, where’s the harm? Also, does this sudden onset of morality extend to hacking, violating copyright, and civil liberties? The article doesn’t say. We wish Mr. Eleven the best of luck with his crusade.

News Flash

China is very corrupt. Russia is more corrupt.

Try not to let this news destroy your faith in ex-Communist states run by the very same party hacks who ran it before.

So much for President Xi Jin Ping’s much-vaunted anti-corruption campaign.

Transparency International’s annual index of perceived levels of corruption across the world is out Wednesday, and China has slid 20 places in the ranking to joint 100th, after posting one of the sharpest declines in its index score of all the countries in the survey.

Transparency’s index, which measures perceptions of corruption from various sources, also showed alarming declines in the scores of Turkey and Russia, the latter falling to 136th place in the rankings, level with Nigeria (and one place ahead of its embattled neighbor, Ukraine).

China’s performance meant that it fell below India, which rose nine places in the ranking to 85th and which, under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is promising its own crackdown on bureaucratic corruption.

There is a ray of hope, however:

Another country to post a big improvement in TI’s rankings was Greece, It’s now risen to 69th place from 94th in two years, as the austerity plan imposed by the International Monetary Fund and Eurozone has bitten hard. The good news there is that it’s now only as corrupt…as Italy, according to TI.

As expected, the top of the rankings showed no real change from previous years, with the Scandinavian Goody Two-Shoes quartet of Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Norway taking four of the top five spots.

The U.S. edged up to 17th from 19th in 2013, level with Barbados and Ireland, and just ahead of Chile and Uruguay.

They must not be looking too hard into Obama’s shenanigans, then. And Greece is only less corrupt because it’s more broke.

EXTRA! New Obama Corruption Scandal! EXTRA!

To Fast & Furious, Benghazi, IRS, fundraising irregularities, press intimidation, the VA disgrace, the ObamaCare disaster, Solyndra and other “green” initiatives, dropping the open-and-shut voter intimidation case against the New Black Panthers—just to name a few—add another one:

EXCLUSIVE: Eight Environmental Protection Agency employees who racked up a total of more than ten years’ worth of paid “administrative leave” between 2011 and 2014 — valued at more than $1,096,000 — apparently did so because they were involved in “cases of alleged serious misconduct,” Fox News has learned.

All of the eight “were or are subject to a disciplinary process,” an EPA official told Fox News, adding that, “we cannot comment on the circumstances of their departure from the agency for those who are no longer employed by EPA.”

The exact nature of the alleged wrongdoings has not been revealed, nor the specific times when they took place. But the lengthy absences — up to three years in one case — seem to indicate that the alleged misconduct actions, whether linked or separate, cover a substantial period of time, even after their discovery.

Almost exactly a year ago, a top EPA official named John Beale was sentenced to 32 months in prison for getting $800,000 worth of paid time off while falsely claiming that he was an active CIA agent, a whopper that apparently went unchecked for years.

In the intervening months, OIG has charged that various EPA officials have stonewalled its efforts to investigate the Beale scandal, and that a separate EPA branch for homeland security has illegally prevented OIG interviews of employees and kept other evidence out of the watchdogs’ hands.

The stonewalling also has been mentioned in a special letter signed by 47 of the administration’s 73 inspectors general, spread across a spectrum of government agencies, and complaining about “serious limitations on access to records” that were creating “potentially serious challenges” to “our ability to conduct our work thoroughly, independently and in a timely manner.

The EPA is too big for its britches, running amok in the government. It should never have been promoted to cabinet level in the first place. Along with Energy, Education, and Transportation, it should be folded into the Interior Department. And throw HUD in there too. I’m not even all that keen on Agriculture and Commerce either.
