Secret Service pensions; Disability checks increase 5.4 million under Obama; Aspirin prevents cancer; Taxes on bank-holding firms; ATF going after shotguns; Democrat Senator unsure he'll vote for Obama; Hatred for climate change deniers; McCain ignored to election fraud

Free Beacon writes: The disgraced Secret Service supervisors accused of engaging in a cocaine-fueled hooker party on the taxpayer dime will still cash in on lucrative taxpayer-funded pensions.
Three Secret Service agents tasked with protecting President Barack Obama have been terminated since it was revealed that they reportedly caroused with prostitutes and drugs in Colombia.
The Washington Post Thursday identified the two supervisors who have been forced out of the agency. Supervisor David Randall Chaney, 48, has been allowed to retire, while Greg Stokes, the assistant special agent in charge of the K-9 division, has been fired with cause. A third low-level officer has resigned his post.
Chaney will soon be cashing in on a pension worth between $47,000 and $61,000 per year, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- reports: A record 5.4 million workers and their dependents have signed up to collect federal disability checks since President Obama took office, according to the latest official government data, as discouraged workers increasingly give up looking for jobs and take advantage of the federal program.
The UK Express reports: The wonder drug aspirin may be more powerful than previously thought after scientists found how it can stop cancer.
Fox News writes: The Office of Financial Research, or OFR, was created by the Dodd-Frank financial services overhaul that President Obama signed into law in July 2010. Technically housed under the Treasury Department, the agency has until now received its funding not from the Congress, but directly from the Federal Reserve.
Starting in July, the OFR Fiscal Year 2013 budget, estimated at $158 million, will be funded entirely through assessments -- also known as taxes -- on bank-holding firms with consolidated assets worth at least $50 billion.
But as became clear at Thursday’s hearing by the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, a close reading of the law the president signed provides no limit on the growth of OFR’s budget, nor on the taxes the agency can impose on big banks to fund it.
“We’ll call you on it,” said Rep. Michael Capuano, D-Mass., warning what would happen if he and his colleagues see the agency growing too large.

Greeley Gazette writes: The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is taking a rare step of allowing public comments prior to issuing a decision on a study that could result in outlawing certain types of shotguns currently available to citizens.
 The ATF completed a study regarding the importability of certain shotguns. The basis for a possible ban is based on a loosely defined "Sporting Purpose" test. Using the vague definition almost all pump-action and semi-automatic shotguns could be banned as they are all capable of accepting a magazine, box or tube capable of holding more than 5 rounds. Other characteristics determined to be "military" by the ATF can also be used as a basis for a ban.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CBS Local writes: Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin says he’s unsure whether he’ll vote for his party’s leader, President Barack Obama, or the likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney.
In a statement Friday, the West Virginia lawmaker said he had “some real differences” with both leaders, finding fault with Obama’s energy and economic policies while questioning whether Romney could understand the challenges facing ordinary people.
Infowars reports: Writing for Forbes Magazine, climate change alarmist Steve Zwick calls for skeptics of man-made global warming to be tracked, hunted down and have their homes burned to the ground, yet another shocking illustration of how eco-fascism is rife within the environmentalist lobby.
“We know who the active denialists are – not the people who buy the lies, mind you, but the people who create the lies. Let’s start keeping track of them now, and when the famines come, let’s make them pay. Let’s let their houses burn. Let’s swap their safe land for submerged islands. Let’s force them to bear the cost of rising food prices,” writes Zwick, adding, “They broke the climate. Why should the rest of us have to pay for it?”
John McCain's 2008 campaign staff allegedly had evidence that Democrats stuffed ballot boxes in Pennsylvania and Ohio on election night, but McCain chose not to pursue voter fraud, according to internal Stratfor emails published by WikiLeaks.
The following words are in the column, and are not mine: McCain felt the crowds assembled in support of Obama and such would be detrimental to our country and it would do our nation no good for this to drag out like last go around, coupled with the possibility of domestic violence.

Keystone Pipeline gaining support among Democrats; China may purchase U.S. space assets; The 99% Spring in Gaylord, MI; Mitt delivers quote on dignity of work for mothers; $7 million taxpayer dollars go to Sexpulse website for gays; Occupy calls for May 1 "general strike"; Food Stamp Assistance grows by 70%; 9th Circuit approves voter I.D. Law; Lawyers forced to admit that Obama birth certificate is a forgery; Obama has lost Afghanistan

Washington Examiner reports: While much of the political world obsesses over Twitter fights and Seamus the dog, Barack Obama has set himself up for a high-profile defeat on one of the most important issues of the campaign.
The president has put his feet in cement in opposition to the Keystone oil pipeline. But on Capitol Hill, more and more Democrats are joining Republicans to force approval of the pipeline, whether Obama wants it or not.
The latest action happened Wednesday, when the House passed a measure to move the pipeline forward. Before the vote, Obama issued a veto threat. The House approved the pipeline anyway -- by a veto-proof majority, 293 to 127. Sixty-nine Democrats abandoned the president to vote with Republicans. That's a lot of defections.  "We're right around the corner from actually passing it," says a well-informed Senate source. "Two-hundred-ninety-three votes in the House is a gigantic number. People want this thing."
Free Beacon reports: China is building space weapons designed to defeat U.S. and allied long-range missiles, and U.S. plans to loosen controls on satellites exports likely will boost Beijing’s space warfare programs, according to a Obama administration report made public on Wednesday.
The report warned that if the U.S. government relaxes controls on satellite exports and related items, “China would purchase and acquire more of these items, and in turn, further reduce the technological edge of the United States’ and its allies’ space assets,” the report said.
Petoskey News Review reports: GAYLORD — Throughout the past week, an organization known as The 99% Spring, sponsored by more than 40 organizations, has conducted leadership training in nonviolent activism across the nation.
According to The 99% Spring, 100,000 people signed up for the training.
At the Gaylord 99% Spring training, held Monday, 24 people from Gaylord and surrounding areas attended.
By the end of the training, the participants decided they’d form an ongoing group known as the “Gaylord 99%.”  I was drawn to Occupy because of the way they framed the argument,” Wieske said. “The government is working well for the 1 percent and not very well for the 99 percent.” [I think a more fair division would be the 53% who pay taxes versus the 47% who don't.]
Free Beacon reports: The heavily edited quote comes from Mitt Romney, who discussed the right of women with children to work at a January campaign event.
“I wanted to increase the work requirement,” Romney said at the event, according to MSNBC. “I said, for instance, that even if you have a child two years of age, you need to go to work. And people said, ‘Well that’s heartless,’ and I said ‘No, no, I’m willing to spend more giving daycare to allow those parents to go back to work. It’ll cost the state more providing that daycare, but I want the individuals to have the dignity of work.’ ”

Fox News reports: NIH under fire for grants toward creation of homoerotic website

NIH records show the government started awarding grants to the Minnesota team beginning in 2001, renewing them almost every year since then. The 2012 grant was valued at more than $680,000; in total, NIH has awarded more than $5 million to the team. The researchers started developing the Sexpulse site in 2005 and continue to work on the project -- the project leader told that total funding through 2015 is expected to top $7 million. 

CNS News reports: As part of Occupy Wall Street’s call for a nationwide “general strike” May 1, elements within the group are looking to shut down bridges and tunnels in both New York and San Francisco.
Occupy Oakland, the most radical of all the local Occupy groups, passed a resolution April 15 that vows to shut down all travel from Marin to San Francisco.
Wall St. Journal reports: The Congressional Budget Office said Thursday that 45 million people in 2011 received Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, a 70% increase from 2007. It  said the number of people receiving the benefits, commonly known as food stamps, would continue growing until 2014.
Examiner reports: Attorney General Eric Holder's unstated objective of allowing voter fraud in the November 2012 elections, hit a serious road block yesterday, as a result of a ruling by the full panel of 12 judges on the federal 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.
The court's decision upheld the provision in Arizona's 2004 Proposition 200 law, requiring voters to produce a valid ID in order to cast their vote.  In their opinion ... 'no proof was offered to show that the ID requirement gave Latinos fewer opportunities to vote,' according to an AP article appearing in FOXNews today.
The court further opined that Arizona's requirement to produce a valid ID before casting a ballot wasn't a poll tax, and doesn't violate equal protection rights under the Constitution.
However, the court did state that the federal National Voter Registration Act trumps another section of the Arizona law, which requires people to prove their citizenship in order to vote.
[Say what?  You must prove you are the person on the voter list, but you don't need to prove you are an American citizen, as the law requires??]

Examiner reports: A crushing situation is emerging for, not only Barack Obama, but also for the American people as a landmark statement has been made by the Obama administration that is going to turn the entire 2012 Presidential race and potentially much more on its head.
Lawyers representing the current sitting President of the United States of America have been forced, under penalty of perjury, to admit that the long-form birth certificate presented by the White House in April of 2011 is a total forgery.
In a NJ ballot access eligibility case spawned by Tea Party activists, attorneys representing Obama had to admit the document presented to the American people by Obama himself is actually knowingly faked and was used to fool the American public into believing a complete fabrication.
In a direct assault on everything the citizens of the USA take for granted, in layman’s terms, his attorneys literally made the argument during a hearing on April 10th that because the document was so obviously faked and could not possibly be considered proof of citizenship, the document itself should not be allowed as evidence in the case.
Obama is now basically asserting that only a legitimate document should be allowed as evidence in this case and therefore this one should be thrown out due to the fact that it’s not real. The Judge agreed.
In what may turn out to be one of the biggest scandals in the history of the United States, the Obama administration itself has now virtually admitted to High Crimes and Misdemeanors and to deceiving the public into believing a lie that was ironically intended to distract awareness from the actual issue that truly determines his eligibility, or lack thereof.
Washington Times reports: President Obama has lost Afghanistan. The war is turning into a catastrophic defeat - one that will be worse than Vietnam. It is time to bring the troops home, and end this national nightmare.-  Mr. Obama said that Afghanistan, unlike the Iraq campaign, was the “necessary war.” It had to be won - at all costs. Hence, he implemented a massive troop surge.

Panetta on threats of war; Employed workers getting unemployment benefits; Diversity; New cars to have black boxes; Obama's 2nd term agenda; Hillary defends capitalism

The Hill writes: Defense Secretary Leon Panetta offered a blunt assessment of the threats facing the United States on Wednesday, saying the potential for another war breaking out remains high in places like North Korea.
“We’re within an inch of war almost every day in that part of the world,” Panetta said in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, in response to a question about the threats in the Korean Peninsula. “And we just have to be very careful about what we say and what we do.”
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The Washington Post reports: District’s attorney general said Wednesday that he will sue former city employees who collected unemployment benefits while working.
Attorney General Irvin B. Nathan said his office will begin filing civil suits “in the next few weeks” to recover the city’s money. District officials have estimated that the city had paid as much as $800,000 in jobless benefits to working city employees since 2009.
Politico writes: President Barack Obama’s team is looking to hire more African-Americans, a search that has stirred a debate among black Democrats about Obama’s record on diversity and its implications for his reelection.  [It has been noted that this President, who signed an Executive Order to force more diversity in government employment, has employed almost no African Americans in his campaign.]
Infowars writes: A bill already passed by the Senate and set to be rubber stamped by the House would make it mandatory for all new cars in the United States to be fitted with black box data recorders from 2015 onwards.
Section 31406 of Senate Bill 1813 (known as MAP-21), calls for “Mandatory Event Data Recorders” to be installed in all new automobiles and legislates for civil penalties to be imposed against individuals for failing to do so.
Although the text of legislation states that such data would remain the property of the owner of the vehicle, the government would have the power to access it in a number of circumstances, including by court order, if the owner consents to make it available, and pursuant to an investigation or inspection conducted by the Secretary of Transportation.
Given the innumerable examples of both government and industry illegally using supposedly privacy-protected information to spy on individuals, this represents the slippery slope to total Big Brother surveillance of every American’s transport habits and location data.
The legislation, which has been given the Orwellian title ‘Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act’, sailed through the Senate after being heavily promoted by Democrats Harry Reid and Barbara Boxer and is also expected to pass the Republican-controlled House.
Investors Business Daily's editorial writes [There are 10 things listed]: Now for something really terrifying: a list of what Obama has in store for America in a second term if he can fool independents into voting for him again.
1)The president would double down on ObamaCare, running up family premiums even higher than he already has while ruining the quality of health care in America.
Kaiser Family Foundation says Obama's new health regulations are already fanning medical inflation, even before the individual mandate takes effect in 2014.
Then, tens of millions of uninsured — along with millions of covered employees — will be herded into government-subsidized insurance exchanges, creating a massive Medicaid program that will starve private insurance providers and eventually force a single-payer system run entirely by government.
Which was Obama's plan all along. 
2) He'd ration Medicare services for the elderly through the formation of a powerful new bureaucracy — the Independent Payment Advisory Board — which would make life-or-death medical decisions for millions of Americans. Whenever Medicare denies a service, private insurers almost always follow.
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- writes:  After a weekend of cavorting in Colombia, the White House was caught flat-footed by Argentina's takeover of a big oil company whose loss will hike gas prices, harm Spain and slam U.S. investors. Lucky us.
Never was a response to a global outrage more mealy-mouthed than the one from the U.S. after Argentina's President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, standing under a portrait of Evita Peron, announced a brazen grab for YPF, the Argentine oil company that's 57% owned by Spain's Repsol.
Markets fell, world leaders denounced the violation of contracts and economically battered Spain rallied European Union support.

Then, leading from behind after Spain vowed a "forceful" response, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to toughen up: "Having an open market is a preferable model. Models that include competition and market access have been the most successful around the world."
Which must have provoked a horse laugh from Buenos Aires. After all, Fernandez heard President Obama the first time when he declared that he free market "doesn't work. It's never worked."

Passport could be revoked if you own $50,000 in back taxes; What happens if we have global cooling; Belgistan rising; Obama indoctrinations; Barney Frank rethinks Obamcare; TSA on Houston buses; Senate Republicans join lawsuit against recess appointments by Obama; Obama stimulus benefits Soros empire; Charging electric cars produces more geeenhouse-gas emissions than regular cars; Bishop slams Obama agenda; More evidence of new Ice Age

Infowars writes: Thanks to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a recently passed Senate bill, the suitably Orwellian entitled ‘Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act’, includes a provision that allows the federal government to revoke passports of Americans accused of owing back taxes.
The legislation now moves to the Congress where, despite a Republican majority, the IRS provision is expected to be retained in the final version of the bill because it will raise an estimated $750 million dollars over ten years.
“There is no requirement that the tax payer be guilty of or even charged with tax evasion, fraud, or any criminal offense — only that the citizen is alleged to owe the IRS back taxes of $50,000 or more,” reports the Daily Economist.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The UK Telegraph wrotes: But the area where I really hope he is wrong is on global cooling. If his analysis of declining sunspot activity is correct, then global mean temperatures are going to decline by about 2 degrees C by 2040 – completely undoing all that lovely beneficial (but rather meagre 0.8 degrees C) global warming we have experienced in the last 150 years.
It will mean longer, colder winters and cooler summers. But far worse than the discomfort will be the effect it has on grain production. The shift in latitudes at which corn and wheat can be grown will be the equivalent of losing a belt 300 kilometres wide all around the world, leading to the loss perhaps 400 million tonnes per annum of grain. The result will be rising food prices, grain shortages – and a 50 per cent likelihood of the kind of volcanic-influenced disaster that led to the horrors of the 1816 Year Without A Summer, precipitating crop failures, weird Turner sunsets, and 200,000 deaths in Europe alone.

Personal Liberty writes: Dictators, tyrants, communists and cult leaders all have one thing in common: successful indoctrination. Indoctrination is the process by which long-held beliefs are slowly chipped away using a chisel of fear and falsehoods. The Obama family is attempting to indoctrinate every generation of Americans. Don’t be fooled. It is not a mere campaigning strategy; it is a calculated tactic to lead America away from her foundational principles.
At every stage of life, one is bombarded with liberal propaganda. The inundation is enough to make one lose his mind. And that’s the whole point. It’s simple psychology. If you are exposed to something enough, you will become more and more accepting of it — no matter how far afield you originally thought it was.
Townhall writes: Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) thought President Obama was making a "mistake" in pressing for healthcare reform in 2010 and urged the White House to back off after Democrats lost their 60-seat majority in the Senate, the congressman tells New York magazine. "I think we paid a terrible price for healthcare," Frank told the magazine in a lengthy interview as he prepares to retire at the end of his 16th term. "I would not have pushed it as hard. As a matter of fact, after [Sen.] Scott Brown [R-Mass.] won [in January 2010], I suggested going back. I would have started with financial reform, but certainly not healthcare."
Infowars reports: A new program in Houston will place undercover TSA agents and police officers on buses whose job it will be to perform bag searches, watch for “suspicious activity” and interrogate passengers in order to ‘curb crime and terrorism’.
“If you think you’re going to be a bad actor on buses, get ready. You are going to have a short-lived time frame,” Jackson Lee said during the press conference. The Congresswoman is a staunch advocate of the TSA, having recently chastised the passage of a new law that allows airports to evict TSA agents and replace them with private screeners by claiming it would lead to a new 9/11-style attack.
National Review reports: In a double-barrelled blast at President Obama, Senate Republicans today moved to join a lawsuit challenging the White House’s Christmas “recess appointment” of National Labor Relations Board members even though the Senate was technically in session. To handle their case, they hired Miguel Estrada, who in 2002 became the first-ever judicial nominee to be torpedoed by a Democratic filibuster.
Canada Free Press reports: Newly recently released tax documents, examined and analyzed by Tina Trent of,  reveal how billionaire “philanthropist” George Soros expanded his U.S.-based empire by using funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, also known as the Obama stimulus. Soros and Obama worked hand-in-glove through the stimulus, which has been called the largest single partisan wealth transfer in American history.
In 2010, tax records show that Soros, a convicted inside trader with extensive knowledge of the American financial system and government policies under Obama, deployed grantees from his Open Society Foundations to lobby for and acquire federal contracts for job training, green energy, and community redevelopment programs.  By gaining control over those resources, Soros advanced his agenda for “green economics,” open borders, and increased government handouts. In short, he grew his empire, which includes much of the “progressive” movement in the U.S., as the federal government itself grew.

In the report, Tina Trent analyzes George Soros’s grants to organizations in 2010. Four powerful organizations and coalitions—The STAR Coalition, The Gamaliel Foundation, the Apollo Alliance, and Green for All – are given detailed scrutiny in this regard, with the involvement of Van Jones getting special mention. Jones is the former Obama “Green Jobs Czar” fired after information about his communist past surfaced through the work of anti-communist blogger Trevor Loudon and then-Fox News personality Glenn Beck.
Citizen Times reports: For most motorists in Michigan, charging their electric vehicles could produce more greenhouse-gas emissions than fueling up and driving the most efficient gas-powered hybrids, according to a new study released Monday by the Union of Concerned Scientists.
( – In a stunning homily on the weekend, an Illinois bishop slammed President Obama for his “radical pro-abortion and extreme secularist agenda” and said Catholics must line up against that agenda at the ballot box in November or else lose all her dearly-held institutions.
“This fall, every practicing Catholic must vote, and must vote their Catholic consciences, or by the following fall our Catholic schools, our Catholic hospitals, our Catholic Newman Centers, all our public ministries—only excepting our church buildings – could easily be shut down,” said Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria at a gathering of Catholic men on Saturday.
“Because no Catholic institution, under any circumstance, can ever cooperate with the intrinsic evil of killing innocent human life in the womb,” he continued.
“Hitler and Stalin, at their better moments, would just barely tolerate some churches remaining open, but would not tolerate any competition with the state in education, social services, and health care,” he said.
“In clear violation of our First Amendment rights, Barack Obama – with his radical, pro abortion and extreme secularist agenda, now seems intent on following a similar path,” he added.

Washington to take command of the oceans; Requiring employees to post info on rights to forn a union is not allowed; Obama's friendship strategy fails in N. Korea; $205,000 spent to translocate one bush; Eric Holder's double-standard; Harvard's "Understanding Obama" class; A Catholic university puts on drag show to foster empathy; Black-on-white crime ignored; Did Janet Napolitano perjure herself?; Anarchist Book Fair and "All pigs must die"; "Buffett Rule" failed to pass;

Human Events reports: President Barack Obama has an ambitious plan for Washington bureaucrats to take command of the oceans—and with it control over much of the nation’s energy, fisheries, even recreation in a move described by lawmakers as the ultimate power grab to zone the seas.

The massive undertaking also includes control over key inland waterways and rivers that reach hundreds of miles upstream, and began with little fanfare when Obama signed an executive order in 2010 to protect the aquatic environment.
But in his zeal to curb sea sprawl, lawmakers say the president’s executive order also gives Washington officialdom unprecedented reach to control land use as well.

“The order says they shall develop a scheme for oversight of oceans and all the sources thereof,” Flores said. “So you could have a snowflake land on Pikes Peak and ultimately it’s going to wind up in the water, so as a result they could regulate on every square inch of U.S. soil.”
The idea to create a policy to oversee multiple uses of the ocean originated during the Bush administration, but after push back from within the ranks, including Vitter, the idea was dropped.
Rep. Don Young (R–Alaska) explained the new bureaucracy to his constituents during an April 3 Alaska field hearing as “a complicated bureaucratic scheme which includes a 27-member national ocean council; an 18-member governance coordinating committee; 10 national policies; nine regional planning bodies—each involving as many as 27 federal agencies as well as states and tribes; nine national priority objectives; nine strategic action plans; seven national goals for coastal marine spatial planning; and 12 guiding principles for coastal marine spatial planning.”  [It appears to me to be part of Obama's full government employment agenda.]
Expose Obama writes: A federal judge has ruled that the National Labor Relations Board cannot require private employers to put up posters informing workers of their right to form a union.
U.S. District Judge David Norton in South Carolina says the labor board exceeded its authority from Congress when it approved the poster requirement last year.
The decision Friday conflicts with a ruling last month by another federal judge in Washington,D.C.,who found the posters were a reasonable means to make workers aware of labor laws.

The Cable.Foreign Policy reports: North Korea's apparently unsuccessful launch of an Unha-3 rocket with a "satellite" attached marks not only the 100th birthday of the country's founder Kim Il Sung, but also the end of the Obama administration's year-long effort to open up a new path for negotiations with the Hermit Kingdom.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned earlier Thursday that the promised launch by North Korea would scuttle the deal the Obama administration negotiated with Pyongyang and announced on Leap Day Feb. 29, which would have provided North Korea with 240,000 tons of U.S. food assistance over the next year. She lamented that the North Koreans had thrown away the progress made.
CNS News reports: The government spent at least $205,075 in 2010 to “translocate” a single bush in San Francisco that stood in the path of a $1.045-billion highway-renovation project that was partially funded by the economic stimulus legislation President Barack Obama signed in 2009.
One New Snow reports: Former Justice Department attorney says U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is demonstrating a clear double-standard in his dealings with the Trayvon Martin case.

During a recent address before the annual convention of the National Action Network, a group founded by civil rights leader Al Sharpton, Holder pledged that the Justice Department will take whatever action is necessary in the killing of Trayvon Martin if it finds evidence that a federal civil rights crime has been committed.
But the top law enforcement official in the country did not utter a word about the actions of the New Black Panther Party, which put up a $10,000 bounty for the "capture" of confessed shooter George Zimmerman. Their poster offering the bounty read: "Wanted Dead or Alive."

J. Christian Adams is the former Justice Department attorney who blew the whistle on certain members of the DOJ who allowed members of the New Black Panther Party to get off the hook despite evidence of blatant voter intimidation in Philadelphia during the 2008 presidential election. He says putting a bounty on someone's life is soliciting kidnapping -- a federal offense.

"As recently as February, Eric Holder's Justice Department prosecuted individuals who were accused of attempting to solicit kidnapping from people they thought were white supremacists," Adams tells OneNewsNow. "So this is a Justice Department that has been willing to enforce the law against some people."

Expose Obama writes: This coming Monday,April 16,a new book by Katie Pavlich is scheduled to be released.  The book, Fast and Furious is reported to shed more light on the botched ATFE Operation Fast and Furious and the cover up that followed.
According to Pavlich,when Homeland Secretary Janet Napolitano testified before Congress about Operation Fast and Furious,she lied on at least two occasions.  Twice she was asked if she had discussed Fast and Furious US Attorney General Eric Holder and twice she answered no.  Pavlich says that there were five emails that clearly indicate that Napolitano and Holder discussed the failed program within two days after the death of US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
Breitbart reports: Last night’s riotous atmosphere resulted in a sergeant and lieutenant suffering minor injuries while scuffling with anarchist protesters at the Astor Place Starbucks, the police said.
According to police, around 25 people tried smashing the windows of the cafe with eight-foot long steel pipes at around 8:45 p.m. after attending the Anarchist book fair earlier in the day. “Patrons fearing that they would be hit by flying glass hid under tables,” the police said in a statement. “Several” officers were assaulted with pipes and bottles, the police added.
As the news reports, the clash started after the Anarchist Book Fair. Lest you think this is mere coincidence, let’s take a quick look at the some of the workshop offerings presented at the Fair -- which advertises that they welcome children, by the way. So what was being taught at the Anarchist Book Fair prior to Saturday’s attack on a Starbucks and subsequent march calling the police pigs?

According to police, part of the rowdy group — some of them masked — marched near Washington Square Park, chanting “cops are murderers” and “all pigs must die.” The crowd eventually grew to around 150, with some tipping garbage cans and spray painting anarchist symbols on buildings, the police said.

Free Beacon wrotes: The Democratic-led Senate on Monday voted to reject President Obama’s most recent policy proposal—a tax increase on some 4,000 millionaires that would raise about $47 billion over the next decade.
The so-called “Buffett Rule”—named after billionaire Obama supporter Warren Buffett and rendered in bill form as the “Paying a Fair Share Act”—fell by a partisan vote of 51-45, failing to meet the 60-vote requirement to proceed to passage.
The vote’s failure was expected. Leading Democrats have all but admitted the Buffett Rule legislation is merely an election-year ploy to force Republicans to vote against tax hikes on “high earners.”

Some belated parental advice to protesters

Here, then, are five things the OWS protesters’ mothers should have taught their children but obviously didn’t, so I will:
Life isn’t fair. The concept of justice - that everyone should be treated fairly - is a worthy and worthwhile moral imperative on which our nation was founded. But justice and economic equality are not the same. Or, as Mick Jagger said, “You can’t always get what you want.”
No matter how you try to “level the playing field,” some people have better luck, skills, talents or connections that land them in better places. Some seem to have all the advantages in life but squander them, others play the modest hand they’re dealt and make up the difference in hard work and perseverance, and some find jobs on Wall Street and eventually buy houses in the Hamptons. Is it fair? Stupid question.
Nothing is “free.” Protesting with signs that seek “free” college degrees and “free” health care make you look like idiots, because colleges and hospitals don’t operate on rainbows and sunshine. There is no magic money machine to tap for your meandering educational careers and “slow paths” to adulthood, and the 53 percent of taxpaying Americans owe you neither a degree nor an annual physical.
While I’m pointing out this obvious fact, here are a few other things that are not free: overtime for police officers and municipal workers, trash hauling, repairs to fixtures and property, condoms, Band-Aids and the food that inexplicably appears on the tables in your makeshift protest kitchens. Real people with real dollars are underwriting your civic temper tantrum.
Your word is your bond. When you demonstrate to eliminate student loan debt, you are advocating precisely the lack of integrity you decry in others. Loans are made based on solemn promises to repay them. No one forces you to borrow money; you are free to choose educational pursuits that don’t require loans, or to seek technical or vocational training that allows you to support yourself and your ongoing educational goals. Also, for the record, being a college student is not a state of victimization. It’s a privilege that billions of young people around the globe would die for - literally.
A protest is not a party. On Saturday in New York, while making a mad dash from my cab to the door of my hotel to avoid you, I saw what isn’t evident in the newsreel footage of your demonstrations: Most of you are doing this only for attention and fun. Serious people in a sober pursuit of social and political change don’t dance jigs down Sixth Avenue like attendees of a Renaissance festival. You look foolish, you smell gross, you are clearly high and you don’t seem to realize that all around you are people who deem you irrelevant.
There are reasons you haven’t found jobs. The truth? Your tattooed necks, gauged ears, facial piercings and dirty dreadlocks are off-putting. Nonconformity for the sake of nonconformity isn’t a virtue. Occupy reality: Only 4 percent of college graduates are out of work. If you are among that 4 percent, find a mirror and face the problem. It’s not them. It’s you.
