Obama Campaign admits to working with non-profits; Libya warnings were given; U.S. Aid to countries using child soldiers; Freddie & Fannie profits to go to federal government; FBI orders Twitter to remove accounts of terrorists; One more unclassy move by Obama campaign; Laguna Patriots are an active group; EPA alleged to have secret emails, to avoid Freedom of Information; "This is deadly earnest!" says Biden

The apparent admission of a top lawyer for the Obama campaign during a recent conference call that the campaign has “work[ed] with some” nonprofit organizations raises questions about the campaign’s coordination with liberal nonprofit groups and could put the nonprofit status of those groups at risk.
Ever since the terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, the Obama administration has been stalling, obfuscating and outright lying in order to avoid taking responsibility for the deaths of four Americans, including our ambassador. To a considerable degree, they have gotten away with that strategy. But Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, has stepped into the breach. Issa’s committee has been approached by whistle-blowers within the State Department, and the stories they tell about the department’s malfeasance are shocking. Today Issa wrote to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, outlining information his committee has received and announcing his intention to hold hearings on what happened in Benghazi:
Based on information provided to the Committee by individuals with direct knowledge of events in Libya, the attack that claimed the Ambassador’s life was the latest in a long line of attacks on Western diplomats and officials in Libya in the months leading up to September 11, 2012. It was clearly never, as Administration officials once insisted, the result of a popular protest. In addition, multiple U.S. federal government officials have confirmed to the Committee that, prior to the September 11 attack, the U.S. mission made repeated requests for increased security in Benghazi. The mission in Libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in Washington.
This is, obviously, a bombshell. Issa goes on to itemize no fewer than 13 attacks
The Washington Post October 27, 2010 headline read, "Obama waiver allows U.S. aid to 4 countries using child soldiers." The ABC news October 5, 2011 headline read, "Obama waives child soldier ban in Yemen and Congo." The Cable, from Foreign October 1, 2012 headline read, "Obama waives sanctions on countries that use child soldiers"

The federal government, in order to wind down mortgage giants, is collecting all profits generated by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac—a move some say may backfire by providing the federal government a source of revenue that Congress will be hard-pressed to let go.
The Treasury announced in August that it would take all profits from the two housing giants in “a quarterly sweep of every dollar of profit that each firm earns.”
This “quarterly sweep” is an effort to recoup money that the federal government has loaned Fannie and Freddie, starting with the 2008 bailout. The federal government took over Fannie and Freddie in September of 2008, in the middle of the housing crisis that brought down the economy. Since then, the two firms have struggled to regain profitability, only recently making money on their investments.  
Congress has used Fannie and Freddie’s profits to fund their legislation in the past, Pinto said. He pointed to legislation from Congress late last year that raised fees at Fannie and Freddie for 10 years in order to fund a two-month extension of the payroll tax cut. [Remember how that "lock box" on Social Security funds went?]
A group of lawmakers has asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to order Twitter to remove from the micro-blogging site the accounts of multiple U.S.-designated terrorist groups—and has warned that Twitter’s failure to do so could be a violation of U.S. law.
Twitter hosts scores of Muslim clerics and organizations, including al Qaeda, designated by the U.S. Department of the Treasury as “terrorists.” The groups use the micro-blogging site to recruit extremists and distribute radical materials, according to the lawmakers, who petitioned FBI Director Robert Mueller to crack down on these illegal virtual activities.
This is posted on an Obama campaign website: {It is s funny thing that after the New Media covered this, it has been taken down from his site.  This would have gone over as well as Obama asking people to have their wedding registries ask that donations go to his campaign instead, or for people to give up their beer or lunch and send the money instead to Obama.}

Laguna Patriots, We have paid transportation, housing and food for those Patriots who will join 
us for 'Boots On the Ground’ in Nevada for 3 weekends: 12-14, 19-21 and 26-28. Please alert me ASAP if you will join us
to take back Nevada.
PS In 2008 one Patriot reported when they went door to door in communities in Las Vegas, they were NOT WELCOMED. But from an inside source we now understand these same communities have left the Obama Camp and the signs in their yards read: ‘No hope!’

The Competitive Enterprise Institute filed a lawsuit against the EPA last week claiming senior executives at the agency used secret email accounts to conduct public business, shielding their communications from the Freedom of Information Act.
The suit cites an internal EPA memo, first revealed in a 2008 Government Accountability Office, which describes secondary email accounts known only to a “few EPA staff members, usually only high-level senior staff.”
CEI is asking the court to compel production of three FOIA requests to the EPA regarding these secondary email addresses.
This is deadly earnest. How they can justify … raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years? How in the Lord’s name can they justify raising their taxes and these tax cuts?”  [Joe is forgetting that the Obamcare law will add a huge TAX burden on the middle class especially, and the fact that it is the Democrats who have owned the Senate and the Presidency for the last four years.]
A blogger wrote this, in part: If the Republicans won't agree to increasing taxes on the wealthy, Harry Reid won't permit the Senate to consider extension of the Bush tax cuts. Thus the Democrats propose to punish Republican refusal to raise taxes on anybody by raising taxes on everybody. That makes the Republicans responsible for the tax increase. In this logic, failure to submit to their [demands] makes the victim responsible for the damage the [Democrats] then inflict.
