Originally posted on A Moral Outrage:

Harry Reid is taking unprecedented steps to block Senate Republicans, even though his actions will result in nothing but procedural delay.

In another example of Democrats playing the role of obstructionists, Harry Reid will force the Senate to go through procedural hurdles to delay Majority Leader Mitch McConnell from bringing up the president’s Keystone XL veto for an override vote.

Last week, President Obama vetoed the popular bipartisan Keystone XL Pipeline bill passed by the Senate.

This week, the Senate is planning a vote to override the president’s veto. Democrats, led by Minority Leader Harry Reid, are set to revoke normal order and attempt to filibuster the override of the President’s veto message.

The cloture vote on a veto message will be the first in the history of the United States Senate. That is because the threshold for a veto override is 67, while the threshold for a cloture…

IRS defends paying refunds to illegals who never filed taxes

The IRS is defending its decision to let illegal immigrants claim up to three years’ refunds on income even if they never paid income taxes, telling Congress in a new letter last week that agency lawyers have concluded getting a Social Security number triggers the ability to go back and ask for previous refunds.

President Obama’s new deportation amnesty could grant Social Security numbers to as many as 4 million illegal immigrants, making many of them eligible for tax refunds under the Earned Income Tax Credit even for years when they cheated on their taxes, working off the books and refusing to file tax returns.

“Section 32 of the Internal Revenue Code requires an SSN on the return, but a taxpayer claiming the EITC is not required to have an SSN before the close of the year for which the…

Fraudsters in Department of Education are caught stealing students’ personal information to apply for loans and cellphones – and one worker looked up Barack Obama’s student loan records

Government employees have been caught stealing students’ personal information to apply for loans, credit cards and set up new cell phone accounts,Daily Mail Online has learned.

Reports on breaches of staff conduct inside the Department of Education shows how workers stole social security numbers from a database while a man was fired for trying to look up President Barack Obama’s student loan records.

Cyber security campaigners warned that the failure to protect sensitive information because of ‘bureaucratic incompetence’ is just the ‘tip of the iceberg’.

Insiders involved in illicit breaches are often overlooked, simply because the public think hackers and cybercriminals are more often to blame, they said.

The Incoherence of Netanyahu’s Most Strident Critics

Originally posted on A Moral Outrage:

Commentary

Near the end of his new autobiography, David Axelrod sheds some light on President Obama’s distaste for democracy. “Obama has limited patience or understanding for officeholders whose concerns are more parochial–which would include most of Congress and many world leaders,” Axelrod writes, in noting Obama’s preference for supercilious vanity projects. Yet while Axelrod paints with a broad brush, he gives two examples, and they are telling. He writes: “Whether it’s John Boehner or Bibi Netanyahu, few practiced politicians appreciate being lectured on where their political self-interest lies.” This passage is an important preamble to the current dustup between the two administrations.

Breaking…Nuclear Deal Would Allow Iran to Build a Bomb in SloMo, Congress Will Be Ignored

Independent Sentinel

The NY Times and the AP reported today on a proposal in Geneva now being considered which would allow Iranians to continue nuclear production with limitations for ten years but with a corresponding easing of sanctions.

The Associated Press (AP) reported that a potential deal would phase out restrictions on Iran’s uranium enrichment activities in the final years which would potentially allow them to build a nuclear weapon unobstructed towards the end of the term.

The core idea would be to reward Iran for good behavior over the last years of any agreement, gradually lifting constraints on its uranium enrichment and slowly easing economic sanctions, AP reports.

In other words, they can not only be a nuclear threshold state with the the ability to eventually have the bomb. Sanctions, our one bargaining chip, would be thing of the past.

Obama: ‘That’s just how White folks will do you’

Let’s trot out this old post done back on October 20, 2012. Now that Rudy Giuliani has opened the door for us to have the much heralded “conversation” on race that the Left keeps harping on, and for Holder who thinks we are “a Nation of cowards,” let’s take a look at what Obama has to say about us “White Folks.” The clip includes portions of the book that were scrubbed.

When I caught the headline from Breitbart that the audiobook version of Obama’s book had scrubbed mentions of Frank Marshall Davis, a video I had seen some time ago came to mind. To me, the portions left out were far more explosive than any discussions of the trio of Davis, Axelrod and Jarrett and Communism. The portions left out gave a glimpse of his anger towards white people. It explained far more about his motivations in governance than Davis. So if  you have a bit of time, it is worth looking…

SMM readers, I’m sure, are aware of “The Gore Effect:” commonly, wherever Al Gore turns up to lecture on global warming, a blizzard ensues. I’ve always considered this evidence that the universe does indeed have a sense of humor. Consider this from the Goracle: 

In his Dec. 10, 2007 Nobel Prize speech, Gore said ‘Last September 21, as the Northern Hemisphere tilted away from the sun, scientists reported with unprecedented distress that the North Polar ice cap is ‘falling off a cliff.’ One study estimated that it could be completely gone during summer in less than 22 years. Another new study, to be presented by U.S. Navy researchers later this week, warns it could happen in as little as 7 years.

That’s right, gentle readers, the northern polar…
