$1.2 Billion Obamacare Contract Pays Workers to Do Nothing

“I am not a Democrat who believes that we can or should defend every government program just because it’s there… We will fire government managers who aren’t getting results, we will cut funding for programs that are wasting your money and we will use technology and lessons from the private sector to improve efficiency across every level of government… The only way we can do all this without leaving our children with an even larger debt is if Washington starts taking responsibility for every dime that it spends.” – September 2008, Barack Obama Yeaaahhh, right. That’s what Obama said in […]

Pat Quinn: Latest in a long line of crooked Illinois Governors

In 1968, Illinois Governor Otto Kerner, Jr (D) was caught accepting bribes from a race track owner and subsequently spent three years in prison, being released because of terminal cancer. Fearing impeachment, he resigned before he went to prison.   If you were in Illinois in the ’70s, then chances are you saw commercials for Dan Walker (D) in his bid for governor. He was walking across Illinois, talking with folks and generally bad mouthing the Daley political machine which had endorsed Lt. Gov. Paul Simon. He defeated Simon in the primary and went on to win the general election. […]

Benghazi Documents Point To White House On Misleading Talking Points

Since October 18, 2012 Judicial Watch has been trying to obtain Benghazi State Department related documents. The lame Congressional hearings of which team Obama has been stonewalling and delaying are in the minds of simple liberals, “evidence” of nothing happened that Obama and company have been covering up. To a liberal, Obama and Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice can outright lie and blame a Youtube video one day and then the next fess-up, admitting the attack at Benghazi was a planned terror attack and it’s no problem. It’s no problem to a liberal that Obama and company lie to them […]

Of Barack, Putin, Michelle and the Wheel of Fortune

Okay, I’m busy here at work this morning, well … sort of.  And there’s a lot of stuff going on … everything from the missing jet-liner, to the missing first lady and family. So, I think I’ll just highlight a few random topics and offer sage advice or just reveal my thoughts on each. Here we go … Ukrainian Troops To Leave Crimea: Official KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Russian forces seized military installations across the disputed Crimean Peninsula on Wednesday, prompting Ukraine’s security chief to announce that his country will hold joint military exercises with the United States and Britain.

Democrat lesson in voter turn out and climate change

North Korean President Kim Jong Un was “re-elected” with 100% of the vote. Now this was done as no other name was on the ballot so it was pretty much a slam-dung … er … dunk for the guy. They could take a few lessons from the Democrats. In 2012 Obama and Romney were on the ballot and  in Cleveland’s Fifth Ward, Mr. Obama won districts E, F, and G 1,337 to Mitt Romney’s… 0. 100% went to Obama and he was actually running against a nationally known name. It gets better; Obama won St. Lucie County, Florida with 99% of […]

America: A Nation Governed By Traitors

I don’t want to sound too corny, but the United States is a wonderful nation. A nation 230+ years since gaining independence grew into a powerful and compassionate nation never seen before in world history. People come to America from poverty-stricken nations, from oppressive nations for the opportunity of a life they could never realize before coming here. America has a marvelous history and a wonderful heritage because since her independence was fought for and won, she has been a nation governed by laws. Liberals and ‘progressives’ want so desperately to change America into the kinds of nations others flee from […]

More ObamaCare Fraud: More Navigators Caught Advising Fraud!

ObamaCare has “navigators,” that are supposed to guide people through the process of signing up for benefits.  Predictably, these navigators seem to be steering people in the direction of fraud.  Two days ago, we covered that Project Veritas showed a video that exposed ObamaCare navigators discussing hiding income form taxes to obtain more government benefits.  This is what I suggested at that time… Of course, the Urban League is stating that the entire situation was exposed under, “false pretenses.”  If you recall, this is a familiar refrain.  When ACORN was busted, and Planned Parenthood were exposed, there were similar denials […]

ObamaCare Navigators Exposed by James OKeefe’s Project Veritas Reluctantly Disciplined

Yesterday, we reported that Project Veritas, Jame’s O’Keefe’s outfit, has released a video showing that ObamaCare “navigators” steered people towards fraud.  Jammie Wearing Fool has more… The ObamaCare rats are scurrying for cover tonight after being exposed by James O’Keefe’s video. We can’t wait for the rest of the videos. The Urban League of Greater Dallas fired one person and suspended three others after a video from a conservative activist reportedly showed the workers encouraging health care applicants to lie. An edited video was released Monday that seemingly shows so-called health care Navigators encouraging people to lie on forms signing […]

Project Veritas Hidden Cam Video Catches #ObamaCare Navigators

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has reportedly caught #ObamaCare “Navigators” instructing would-be insure customers  to lie about their income, and other activities, when enrolling in #ObamaCare.  Here is the video… Gateway Pundit, who still has not linked here, has a video from Bill O’Reilly discussing the situation as well.  Project Veritas claims to have unprecedented resources (people) on this fraud. The suggestion is that it is widespread. If more is released, I will cover it. You can support the CH 2.0 with your holiday purchases, at no additional expense to yourself!

Fraud Alert: Half of People Enrolled Medicaid Program are Ineligible

When the government wants to make as many people dependent as possible on government programs, you might go as far to look the other way when there is massive fraud in the program.  Well, that appears to be what happened in Illinois, where a recent investigation showed that nearly half of the recipients are actually ineligible. Fraud in social programs are nothing new, but 50 percent? That’s simply insane!

Was Obama Fraudulently Put on the Ballot in 2008?

If the court decision holds, it appears that Barak Obama was placed on the Indiana ballot fraudulently. Right Wing news has the details… Courtesy of Fox News. A jury in South Bend, Indiana has found that fraud put President Obama and Hillary Clinton on the presidential primary ballot in Indiana in the 2008 election. Two Democratic political operatives were convicted Thursday night in the illegal scheme after only three hours of deliberations. They were found guilty on all counts. Former longtime St. Joseph County Democratic party Chairman Butch Morgan Jr. was found guilty of felony conspiracy counts to commit petition […]

Two Dozen IRS Employees Caught Claiming to be Unemployed to Collect Benefits!

So, the people in charge of the money are being arrested for defrauding the taxpayers?  Well, it appears that two dozen IRS employees have claimed to be unemployed in order to collect benefits.  Doug Ross(no relation) has more… But — but — but — I thought all who work in government are benevolent public servants? That they’re better than the rest of us? That they’re angels, working for the public good? Twenty-four current and former Internal Revenue Service employees have been charged with stealing government benefits, federal prosecutors said Wednesday. The IRS employees were indicted on charges that they illegally […]

Democrats Want EBT Cards Used at Casinos, Strip Clubs, and Bars

If the Democrats aren’t trying to encourage welfare fraud, why are they trying to stop taxpayers, from using government EBT cards at Casinos, liquor stores, and so forth?  Moonbattery has more… That’s why they are making sure that EBT cards continue to be used to make cash withdrawals of other people’s money at casinos, bars, porn shops, and strip clubs, even as the nation staggers toward bankruptcy. Democratic [New York] state lawmakers, led by Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, have blocked welfare-reform legislation that would end “sinful spending” by preventing people receiving government benefits from withdrawing taxpayer-funded cash at jiggle and […]

Voting Machines in Kansas and Ohio Change Romney Votes to Obama Votes

Early voting seems to have a purpose after all-to discover that voting machines are changing Romney votes into Obama votes.  As if by magic, of course.  the Lonely Conservative has more… Has anyone heard of any instances of voting machines erring on the side of Mitt Romney? I haven’t. Everything I’ve heard is about voting machines changing votes for Romney into votes for Obama. It’s still going on. According to the Marion Star, early voter Joan Stevens tried to cast her ballot for Mitt Romney, but the machine kept defaulting to Barack Obama. “Upon selecting ‘Mitt Romney’ on the electronic touch screen, […]

Another Hate Crime Hoax? Is Sharmeka Moffitt the Latest to Fake a Hate Crime?

If you recall my commentary on the Occupy Movement, I made the point that leftists love to set up “atrocities” so they can claim to be victims.  For example, they will antagonize and provoke others into either attacking, or defending themselves.  Then, they try and tell the world that they are the victims.  However, when they cannot set one up, they aren’t above faking one completely.  In that vein, enter one Sharmeka Moffitt, who claimed she was attacked, and set on fire.  Then, “KKK” was carved into her car.  However, after garnering a great deal of sympathy from the left, she was exposed […]

ObamaPhone Hilarity: Over 250,000 Have More Than One

When you give away free stuff things that other people are paying for, you have to expect some fraud and abuse along the way.  For a great example, we need to look no further than the infamous ObamaPhone.  But, it seems that people are loving their free paid for by us phones so much, they can’t stop at just one.  Liberty News has the story… Note that Obama’s own minions found that more than 250,000 people have more than one ObamaPhone.   I guess it’s probably racist to point that out, right? To lighten the mood a bit, All American Blogger has […]

O’Keefe Catches Union Bosses Supporting Digging Holes, and Filling them Back in-At Taxpayer Expense

Remember the BS “projects” that the porkulus funded?  Like, Turtle Tunnels, fish sperm storage, and curb cuts where there were no sidewalks?  Well, James O’Keefe, the man who helped bust ACORN, has exposed some union shenanigans.  O’Keefe formed a fake company, who’s specialty is to dig holes, and fill them back in.  He also went to local union bosses for help.  The results are hilarious.  Here is the video… OK, here is the part of the story that will be completely ignored. THE FULL, UNEDITED FOOTAGE IS HERE!   If this get’s covered at all, the union bosses will say, “out of […]

Do “Lumps of Cells” Have a Gender? Planned Parenthood Thinks so

Planned Parenthood has quite the history.  From being founded by an avowed eugenicist that openly called for the extermination of the black race, to taking donations to abort black babies, to putting most of their facilities in minority neighborhoods, to and to getting caught trying to cover up for statutory rape and child prostitution, PP has been stung repeatedly.  Here is the latest Live Action Sting of Planned Parenthood, via Da Tech Guy… Da Tech Guy himself lends some mighty pertinent analysis… Why does Planned Parenthood condemn sex selection motivated by gender bias? That implies that they don’t mind sex selection motivated […]

Feds Investigate Manhattan Infidel IPO

Fast on the heels of the debacle over the Facebook initial public offering, Wall Street is now dealing with the looming scandal over the IPO for a relatively insignificant blog that calls itself “Manhattan Infidel.” Trouble began in March when the man behind Manhattan Infidel, a shadowy figure who has never been photographed and is known only by his nom de plume of “Ricky Hot Pants”  began the paperwork for the IPO of his blog. Said a Wall Street regulator who reviewed the paperwork: Something seemed odd.  The papers revealed that he hoped to raise 100 million with an initial […]

Stupid is as Stupid Does:Three Stories

With all that is going on in America and in the world that has impact our lives and the futures of our children, it is not surprising that a lot of news passes under the radar, sort of speak. Sometimes I have to wonder if there is a conspiracy within the MSM to keep some news under the radar because they don’t want the world to know just how outrageously stupid Americans can be at times. We have come to expect people in government to do stupid things. In fact that is the norm and it is not just an American […]

Obama Supports Gay Marriage: Yet Another Topic to Distract From You-Know-What

OK then, Obama supports gay marriage.  That brings a few questions to mind… 1.  Did anyone really think that he was ever  opposed to gay marriage? 2.  Did anyone actually believe him when he said he was opposed to it? 3.  Does it matter a rat’s anus that he’s now not lying about it? HINT:  The answer to all three is “no.” However, there is a purpose to the announcement, and it has nothing to do with gay folks.  It does, however, have everything to do with having something to occupy the MSM and the public debate.  Because, if they […]

Shovel Ready? $11,000,000 Spent-two People Helped!

For government work, that’s a bargain, apparently.  We said that when the porkulus passed, that there would be tremendous waste and corruption.  So, when the following came to light, I was not surprised.  Michelle Malkin has more on the shenanigans in Detroit.   Part of an $11 million grant intended to provide business attire to 400 low-income job-seekers instead helped only two people, an audit of the city’s Department of Human Services has found. The audit, conducted by the city’s auditor general for the period from July 2009 to September 2011, found the department failed to control the operations and […]

Environmental Scientist Caught Ignoring Evidence “to win”

I love science, and generally respect scientists.  Science has increased our lifespans, and has created the very technology that allows us to communicate information that is avoided by the MSM and that the government would rather we not have.  So, when scientists are caught behaving badly, I get a bit irritable.  We’ve seen the evidence that the ClimateGate scientists were cooking the numbers to “hide the decline.”  We also got to read how they were using pressure and otherwise conspiring to prevent contradictory information from being published.  Now, there is an additional case to examine.  Kindly take a look at […]

Public School Teacher Associated With Occupy Wall Street Steps Down due to Falsifying Time Sheets

Ethics, at Occupy Wall Street?  Apparently not, according to the following story from the Daley Gator… ‘Occupy’ Teacher Quits Public School Job After Getting Caught Falsifying Time Sheets – New York Post A leader of Occupy Wall Street abruptly quit his job as a city public school teacher after getting caught red-handed falsifying time sheets, The Post has learned. Former South Brooklyn Community HS science teacher Justin Wedes, who often rails against corporate greed and corruption, “cut and pasted’’ the signature of a supervisor onto his time sheets while applying for a national education grant, Special Schools Commissioner of Investigation […]

When the "Unexpected" Gets Worse: Government Fudged Job Numbers Just to get them to "Pathetic"

unemployment

In all actuality, they are “horrific.” Apparently, the Labor Department had to do some interesting mathematics to get the job numbers to project any gains at all.   For more, here is more from the NY Post: The Labor Department officially announced that only 18,000 jobs were created during the month of June compared to May’s levels. That’s considerably below the 157,000 jobs that payroll-processing firm ADP said on Thursday were added by companies in the private sector. Our economy is said to need at least 150,000 jobs a month just to keep up with people entering the workforce. So even job […]
