FBI has names of CIA leakers, says former U.S. Attorney

One can only wonder why Trump doesn’t get on this and rid himself of the Obama rats nipping at his heels. The plants were left there to do what they could in destroying his administration. As far as the GOP? Only to happy to go along with letting Trump and his appointees spin in the wind with non support. Here tis:

secretCIA officials know who has been leaking classified information to The New York Times and The Washington Post, and the officials have passed that information on to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, according to a former U.S. attorney for President Ronald Reagan.

“[This] confirms former Obama administration officials are in fact disclosing and discussing classified information with the press.”

The New York Times revealed in a report Wednesday that President Obama’s staffers left bread crumbs for anyone looking to undermine the Trump administration throughout the federal government. The revelation by The Times indicates how a steady drip of embarrassing leaks has tormented the new administration of President Donald Trump.

Some of the information reportedly planted by Obama officials had to do with alleged ties between President Trump’s “associates” — The Times does not define that term — and Russian officials.

Apparently, the Obama administration wanted to leave plenty of ammunition for leakers to keep hot the theme that Trump and his allies are connected to Moscow.

But diGenova, well-known former U.S. Attorney, said the bigger story is the ongoing war of leaks between entrenched federal employees, loyal to Obama, and the new Trump White House.

Thanks Obama, gave foreign students 180,000 American jobs, cost 32 Billion

Our Community Organizer helping out big business.

A pro-immigrant program was expanded under President Obama that paid U.S. firms $2.7 billion to hire 180,000 foreign “students,” jobs that likely otherwise would have gone to Americans, according to a new report.

The so-called “Optional Practical Training” was supposedly set up for foreign students but actually included no training and put college graduates in the high-paying jobs for three years.

The Center for Immigration Studies, which on Friday urged President Trump to stop the program, estimated that the jobs paid $60,000, suggesting a total of $11 billion in annual wages lost to American workers, over $32 billion over three years. In his Inaugural Address, Trump advocated an “America First” theme.

“The best part of OPT for the foreign alums — and a devastating factor to U.S. resident college grads (both citizens and green card holders) — is that employers are given a $10,000-$15,000 bonus for hiring an alien rather than an American with the same salary.

“This is hard to believe, but true; recent administrations have waved a magic wand over the foreign grads and called them ‘students’ so that the usual payroll taxes (Social Security and Medicare) do not apply to either their employers or to the students.

“So the employer, faced with two equally qualified candidates for, say, a $60,000 a year job (for three years), each candidate being willing to work for that salary, has his choice. If he hires the alien the total payroll costs for three years will be $180,000; if he hires the citizen alternative, the employer will pay $193,770. The higher the salary, the bigger the bonus to the employer hiring the alien.”

U.S. Pilots to rally at WH, urge blockage of export of White Collar jobs UPDATE

UPDATE: Google this topic and nothing found about it. I did see a picture slide by on twitter yesterday.Here tis and that was it.

We learn of one more time bomb inserted by Obama a couple of days before his departures. In this case,foreign workers. The more the merrier for him, but in this case let’s have those of us flying the friendly skies supported by American workers, not those earning a buck an hour. Here tis:

Airline pilots will hold a White House rally on Tuesday asking President Donald Trump pilotsto block Obama’s last-minute approval of a plan that would replace thousands of American pilots with foreign aircrew paid at rock-bottom foreign wages.

The airline pilots’ appeal will come one day after Trump’s signature on Monday killed the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, which would have allowed an unlimited number of foreign companies to replace U.S. workers with imported foreign workers paid $1 an hour wages.

“This [Obama pilot] decision is just another failed trade deal by the Obama administration, giving foreign companies an unfair advantage over U.S. companies,” said Captain Jon Weaks, Southwest Airlines Pilots’ Association president.

Throughout his two terms, Obama worked to increase the annual inflow of foreign white-collar workers, and his last-minute regulations allow many more white-collar contract workers to get permanent residence.

Obama’s expansion of the H-1B outsourcing program would take effect just three days before he leaves the White House. It can be seen as a direct challenge to incoming President Donald Trump, who promised to reform the H-1B program.

“This is an attempt to rewrite the Green Card [immigration] system through regulation,” said John Miano, an attorney who represents American workers hit by H-1B outsourcing. “The effect is to make an even bigger hash of the problems we have now,” he told Breitbart News. Currently, roughly 1 million while-collar jobs in Americans are held by multi-year foreign contract workers. These professionals include 100,000 H-1B contract workers employed in universities, and 147,00 foreign graduates of U.S. universities. Also, several Democrat-run states are granting professional licenses to illegal immigrants. In addition, legal immigration brings in more than 150,000 white-collar immigrants each year.

Bomb Maker Bill Ayers celebrates Obama’s clemency for bomb maker Oscar Lopez Rivera

Everyone is talking about the release of Manning by Obama, but this little number who remains committed to terrorism poses future risk to all of us. He is still an avowed terrorist who will remain here in the USA, not be set free in some third world hell hole. I include a clip of Bill Ayers just for the record.

Bill Ayers, the Weather Underground bombmaker, celebrated Tuesday after his old Chicago friend Barack Obama commuted the federal prison sentence of Oscar López Rivera, another bombmaking terrorist.

Bill Clinton offered to grant clemency to Rivera along with 15 other FALN members in 1999, despite the group’s use of violence. Clinton said that he felt that the terrorists’ sentences were too harsh given their crimes. But Rivera refused to comply with one of Clinton’s conditions, which was to disavow the use of terrorism. Rivera was sentenced to 55 years in prison in 1981 on charges of seditious conspiracy, robbery, and transportation of firearms and explosives charges.

He was a member of the Marxist Puerto Rican nationalist group Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional, or FALN. The group carried out around 130 bombings across the U.S. from the mid-1970s to early-1980s, killing six people and injuring dozens more.

FALN’s most notorious attack was carried out in 1975 at the Francous Tavern in Manhattan. Four people were killed in the bombing.

Obama getting ready to commute traitor Bradley Manning sentence

Is it possible for Obama to express any further disdain for America in these final days of his administration? Why of course it is. Emptying Gitmo terrorists upon us, and why not signal leaking classified docs is not a big thing. Unless it concerns the Democrats. But we already learned that with the Clintons now didn’t we? Meanwhile that poor fellow who took a couple of pics inside a submarine and sent them to his mother will rot in jail because they were labeled classified.

Remember how outraged the Dems were roughly 5 seconds ago about Wikileaks and the Russians? Remember how that was treason? But that’s only when important things, like Hillary Clinton losing an election, come up. Not petty things like national security.

manningObama has put Bradley Manning, the former Army intelligence analyst serving a 35-year sentence for leaking classified material, on his short list for a possible commutation, a Justice Department source told NBC News.

A decision could come as soon as Wednesday for Manning, who has tried to commit suicide twice this year and went on a hunger strike in a bid for gender reassignment surgery.

Manning — then known as Bradley — was locked up in 2010 after swiping 700,000 military files and diplomatic cables and giving them to Wikileaks.

Obama slashes mortgage insurance premiums for subprime borrowers

With just ten days to go, Obama adds a little time bomb into the housing market. It’s as if we have learned nothing about the housing bubble and subprime borrowers. In case anyone may have forgotten what this election was about and why we may have dodged a bullet, I give you this story.

subprimeWhat do you do when a quick rise in mortgage rates suddenly threatens to tame home buying demand from subprime borrowers who, despite the lessons from the past, are still purchasing homes, en masse, with only 3.5% down payments and just enough monthly cash flow to cover mortgage payments?  Well, if you’re the Obama administration then you simply socialize the problem and force those higher mortgage costs on taxpayers.  Anything less would just be a hateful attempt to deny minority and low-income citizens their “right” to home ownership.

And while the Obama administration isn’t directly passing out tax dollars to subprime borrowers to make their monthly mortgage payments, its recent decision to lower the FHA’s annual mortgage insurance premiums by 0.25% is essentially the same thing since tax payers are still on the hook for the same risk but receiving lower premiums in return.  Per Bloomberg:

The FHA doesn’t make mortgages. It sells insurance, paid by borrowers, on loans protecting investors in case of default. The program allows borrowers to get a mortgage with a down payment of as little as 3.5 percent and a credit score of as low as 580, on a scale of 300 to 850. That makes it one of the most forgiving mortgage programs and popular among first-time home buyers.

Some in the real-estate industry have been calling for another fee cut and heralded Monday’s move.

“Dropping mortgage insurance premiums today will mean a whole lot more responsible borrowers are suddenly eligible to purchase a home through FHA,” William Brown, president of the National Association of Realtors, said in a statement.

The FHA last cut premiums two years ago. That cut, which came as rates dropped and lowered the annual fee for most borrowers to 0.85 percent from 1.35 percent, led to a wave of refinances.

Food Stamp recipients can order from Amazon, other online retailers

Here we go, another blast from Obama as he heads out the door. The already bloated corrupt Food-Stamp plan moves on to even more absurdity. I’ll throw in a flash back post to show how hard Obama has worked to bankrupt the USA.

Food-stamp recipients can use their taxpayer-funded benefit to order online from retailers like Amazon under a new Obama administration initiative that aims to facilitate the shopping experience for rural and urban residents. It marks the latest of many costly experiments by the administration to expand the fraud-infested program, which has seen a record-high number of beneficiaries under President Obama. To eliminate the welfare stigma, the administration renamed food stamps Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the rolls swelled to an astounding 46.5 million in 2016. This cost American taxpayers and eye-popping $70 billion, according to government figures.

food-stamps-2It’s the last thing that an out-of-control government program, long plagued with fraud corruption, needs. Under the Obama expansion SNAP has suffered a multitude of serious problems. Back in 2012 a federal investigation uncovered evidence that food-stamp recipients were using the benefit to buy drugs, weapons and other contraband from unscrupulous vendors. A year later Judicial Watch broke a story, based on testimony and other evidence provided by a whistleblower, about the U.S. government knowingly giving illegal immigrants food stamps for decades. That was followed by another disturbing scheme in which SNAP benefits were being sold online using social media such as Facebook, Twitter and ecommerce websites like Craigslist and eBay.

FLASHBACK! Recall Obama minions held dozens of meetings on food stamps with Mexico 

The Obama administration met with Mexican officials and held other events to discuss enrollment in food stamps and similar programs roughly 30 times since President Obama took office, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack revealed in a recent letter to Congress.

The initiative is one of several the agency has “to promote awareness of nutrition assistance among those who need benefits and meet all program requirements under current law,” Vilsack told Sessions in the 24-page letter, dated Sept. 12.

They were among 151 documented meetings and events held since 2004, when the United States and Mexico first started partnering on food-stamp awareness. That partnership, though, has raised alarm with Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who is concerned the collaboration amounts to a vehicle for the USDA to pressure people onto the food-stamp rolls — in this case, noncitizen immigrants from Mexico.
