Obama: ‘By hook or by crook I will expand the government’

No surprise really, but still Obama keeps pushing the envelope for the tolerance level of the American people. Apparently, there is no bounds. It’s almost that he delights in pulling our chain. Why else keep harping on his damnable phone and pen. Here we go:

Daily Caller:

President Barack Obama says he’s going to push the limits on presidential power as far as he can go during the last two years of his tenure.

“Where [elected Republicans in Congress] are not willing to work with us, we will do it administratively or we will convene the private sector,” he said in a friendly interview with The Huffington Post.

“By hook or by crook,” he added.

Obama said his big-government push would “make sure that when I leave this office, that the country is more prosperous, more people have opportunity, kids have a better education, we’re more competitive, climate change is being taken more seriously than it was, and we are actually trying to do something about it.”

CIA Brennan ‘ISIS is on the run’ and other stupid things he has said

The latest news from John Brennan is that ISIS is on the run, sit back and relax. But before we get to that piece of good news just out, let’s take a look at this rascal and what he is all about. Another desert loving Middle-Eastern educated infiltrators.

Just think about it. That’s all. From part of an earlier post:

Obama’s CIA Chief Brennan Behind Journalist’s Murder?

Did John Brennan call for Michael Hastings to be tried under the Espionage Act, and did that prove to be too inconvenient for the head spook? Sources close to Hastings state not only that Hastings was investigating Brennan and his rogue CIA agency, but the NSA as well.According to a hacked email from Defense contractor Stratfor that was reported on by San Diego Channel 6’s Kimberly Dvorak, it was former counter terrorism czar and now CIA chief John Brennan—and not Eric Holder’s Department of Justice—who was behind the recently revealed media witch hunt. Per the email, written by none other than Fred Burton, the president of the huge military contractor Stratfor, “Brennan is behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists…”

Brennan, then as now in charge of Obama’s drone assassination program, has targeted American citizens on foreign soil, specifically the murder of Anwar al-Awlaki and his 16-year-old son,Abdulrahman, in Yemen, along with five other Yemeni teenagers.

Now back to the latest via Washington Examiner

CIA director John Brennan on Sunday gave an optimistic assessment of U.S. efforts against the Islamic State, saying that the terrorist group’s expansion has been “blunted.”

“Clearly, ISIS momentum inside of Iraq and Syria has been blunted, and it has been stopped,” Brennan said in an interview with Fox News, using another name by which the Islamic State is known.

“They are not on the march as they were several months ago,” he said. “And so, our working with the Iraqis and the Iraqis now trying to push back against it, it is having some great, I think, progress.”

The U.S. has been engaged in a campaign against the Islamic State using air power and training regional forces to engage Islamic State militants.

Groups affiliated with the Islamic State, however, have branched into North Africa in recent months, and took responsibility for terrorist attacks this week in Yemen and Tunisia.

Brennan acknowledged those gains by the Islamic State, saying that the U.S. “cannot relent” in working with regional partners against the terrorists.

But he defended his past comments in 2012 that the U.S. had Al-Qaida on the run, saying that the Islamic State is a new and separate phenomenon.

“There was no sense that I think either I or the president or others gave to the American people that terrorism was going away,” Brennan said. “But we’ve made great progress against a lot of these groups that had plans in place to carry out attacks.”Keep reading

Just for the record: John Brennan and other stupid things he said

“I did spend time with classmates at the American University in Cairo in the 1970’s. And, time spent with classmates from Egypt, Jordan, Palestine from around the world who taught me thatwhatever our differences in nationality, or race, or religion, or language, there are certain aspirations that we all share. To get an education. To provide for our family. To practice our faith freely (huh?). To live in peace and security. And in a 25 year career in government, I was privileged to serve in positions across the Middle East… In Saudi Arabia, I saw how our Saudi partners fulfilled their duty as custodians of the two holy mosques at Mecca and Medina. I marveled at the majesty of the Hajj and the devotion of those who fulfilled their duty as Muslims by making that pilgrimage. And, in all my travels the city I have come to love most is al-Quds, Jerusalem where three great faiths come together.”

Other stupid things Brennan said:

Brennandecried the “ignorant feelings” of Americans outraged at the jihadi attacks on American soil. And then he told Shahin and the audience of Muslim students that he “was very concerned after the attack in Fort Hood as well as the December 25 attack that all of sudden there were people who went back into this fearful position that lashed out not thinking through what was reasonable and appropriate.”

 

Hillary Clinton should have stayed home and baked those cookies

Update: Don’t miss this one.

MONICA CROWLEY: Was Hillary Clinton running her own rogue intel operation?

We all know that the only reason you would deliberately and premeditatedly set up a private email address and server is to have total control over your communications — to keep people away from those communications and to retain the ability to edit and delete your content.

In Hillary Clinton’s case, given her long history of concealment and duplicity, total control was the system’s purpose, not to keep track of Chelsea’s bridal gift registry.

A story originally reported in 2013 (and little-noticed at the time) may offer a deeper dimension to the reasons she wanted this control — and it leaves us with many new, unanswered questions.

Hillary, why didn’t you just make those cookies? Let us hope she is in a world of hurt for this last nefarious act of hers. No need to recall her sordid past.

You know, it is that vast right wing conspiracy that first went after her husband and now no doubt her and her little server.

Hillary’s little home server used a spam filtering service with access to classified stuff

Here is an interesting bit of news that I found at News Alert. Not that there were many of us figuring out that Hillary’s little server was not quite as safe as the State Department’s server. So for the less than tech savie  individuals, here is how it worked.

Hillary Clinton used a spam filtering service MxLogic to filter her spam and viruses. What this means is – employees at MxLogic, now owned byMcAfee – had full access to all her classified state department email in unencrypted form.

What this means is that when Obama or anyone in the State Department emailed Hillary, the email went to MxLogic. It was then decrypted, checked for spam and viruses, and then reencrypted and sent over the open internet to Hillary’s server. While it was at MxLogic it could be read, tapped, archived, or forwarded to anyone in the world without anyone knowing.Here’s the MX records for clintonemail.com.

clintonemail.com. 7200 IN MX 10 clintonemail.com.inbound10.mxlogicmx.net.
clintonemail.com. 7200 IN MX 10 clintonemail.com.inbound10.mxlogic.net.

I’m Marc Perkel – I’m an email expert and I run a competing spam filtering service Junk Email Filter. (yes – I’m jealous) So I know how email system work. Email from the Internet is routed by DNS records called MX records what are used to look up where to deliver email destined for a recipient. When someone uses a Spam Filtering service they point their MX records to that service and all email for that domain goes to the spam filtering service first – they clean it – and forward the good email on to the recipient server which is secret to the world.

Internet —–> MxLogic ——> Hillary’s Server

Harry Reid before: ‘No sane country would reward illegal aliens’

Harry Reid was against illegals before he was for them. No surprise with dirty Harry.

Thank you C-Span!  Here’s Harry hoisting himself by his own petard!  Next time some liberal starts whining about how only those e-vile Conservatives oppose illegal immigrants, just send ‘em this link! In this footage from 1993:

Sen. Harry Reid speaks forcefully that “no sane country” would reward illegal aliens with citizenship for their off-spring.


Last week, the Senate Majority Leader was asked about Republican calls for hearings on the birthright citizenship issue: “They’ve either taken leave of their senses or their principles.”

Clinton: ‘The server will remain private because I decreed it’

Anyone who missed Pant Suits yesterday give her spin on why she is so special that no one dare question her was in for a treat. The whole presser is out there, but I think this one sums it up completely. I have to give the press credit. There were a few who were willing to ask real questions. For some reason I don’t think Trey Gowdy may be in agreement.

 

The attitude on this video is just astonishing. She was shaking her head so much in response to the question about deleting emails, I thought her head was going to spin completely around. Of course, she then admitted she had done just that to about half of her emails. Of course, only the “private” ones…

She claimed all the server has on it now is her private emails with her husband. So the “server will remain private”.

Of course, Bill’s spokesman just said he doesn’t send email, that he’s only sent two in his life, while he was president.

Eric Holder use private email for ‘Fast and Furious’?

Curious isn’t it? Recall Lisa Jackson and her “Richard Windsor” email handle?According to a recent survey of government employees

High-level federal executives routinely use personal email for business, in likely violation of the Federal Records Act. That’s according to a recent survey of federal employees.

In other words who cares about the Federal Records Act and so much for the most transparent government ever.

Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 9.29.18 PM

Not sure what other reason for the redaction, replaced with ‘Attorney General’.

Via Sharyl Attkisson:

As to whether Holder himself ever used personal email for government business, the Justice Department isn’t saying. A spokesman did not respond to requests for information about Holder’s email practices.

In Justice Department emails turned over in a federal Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, Holder’s email name is redacted with no explanation. It’s unknown whether the redactions conceal use of an email address that does not belong to an official government account.

Fast and Furious-related emails between Holder and his wife Sharon Malone, and his mother, are currently being withheld under executive privilege invoked by President Obama.
