Pimping out Democrats on the public’s dime

Former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson gave a speech at Hillsdale College in which she said the Obama administration has been producing its own taxpayer funded video content to avoid questions and accountability.

  • The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) used millions of taxpayer dollars to expand or create their own television studios.
  • The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has a studio with Hitachi high-definition cameras and LCD-based teleprompters.
  • The U.S. Department of Agriculture has more than 1,200 “media relations employees” on staff.
  • The FDA has a studio that can fit a live audience of 100 people.

And your tax dollars pay for all of it.

Least transparent administration ever

Attkisson also said that, because of the Obama administration, “the job of getting at the truth has never been harder.”

“There’s delay, denial, obstruction, intimidation, retaliation, bullying, surveillance and for some, the possible threat of criminal prosecution. In my view and that of other national reporters, this is proving to be the least transparent administration we’ve covered. It’s so bad that practically every major news outlet including the CBS News, Washington Post and the New York Times signed a scathing letter to the White House in 2013 objecting to restrictions on the press that are unprecedented, that we have not dealt with before.”

Attkisson said. “I’m still waiting for lawful responses to my FOIA requests on Benghazi, Ebola, Fast and Furious, Healthcare.gov from the FBI.”

The DOJ, which is supposed to uphold the law, uses tax monies to pay lawyers to defend the Obama administration’s refusal to uphold the law, so any attempt to sue the government for failing to respond properly to Freedom of Information requests has no downside for them and no upside for citizens trying to obtain documents that the law says we have a right to see.

Duffel Blog Comes Out with Tactical Tomahawk Parody Just in Time for Grunt to Use it to Shame His Son, Who Carried One Through TSA Security at DIA This Weekend

Just today, Monday, the Duffel Blog posted an amusing parody about an intelligence officer at Bagram Airfield who finally discarded enough essential equipment from his tactical vest to find a place to put his 16″ tactical tomahawk, which of course, is much more critical than a first aid kit or extra ammo.

But the awesome thing about this blog post is that it comes just in time to use against my son, who flies back into town tonight from a training trip. You see, when he left town last week, he was carrying a lot of tactical gear, including firearms locked in hard cases to be checked with the airline. But the really fun thing is that he apparently forgot to take the tactical tomahawk out of his carry-on backpack before attempting to clear TSA security at Denver International Airport. This is not something I advise any readers to do if they value their freedom or dignity. If you choose to do such a thing, I highly advise that you do it while part of a large group of other men dressed in similar tactical gear. That intimidates the TSA just enough to forget that they’re supposed to treat you like a “lone wolf” terrorist and you might barely escape without an anal probing.

The downside to traveling in such a group, as my son found out, is that your unit will not fail to notice that you’ve done one of the most bonehead things they’ve ever seen, and you will be doing pushups until you can’t move and buying everybody steak dinners for a very long time.  And then, after all that, you get home, and your dad gets to give you crap about how you’ve “dishonored the family” and make you fetch beers from the fridge downstairs for hours.  I can’t wait.

Fly with Confidence, America; Those ISIS Activists on Your Flight are Mostly Harmless

Back4“Do you trust me?” So asked the petite, blonde, senior Delta flight attendant in the short red dress, fresh from delivering trays of cocktails to first class passengers. “Believe me, I’ve been through much worse than this on my plane before. Front page news stuff. Don’t want to talk about it right now, mind you.”

“But you can trust me, this woman is no physical threat. She’s just flown in from Dubai, which is an 18 hour flight, and she’s just a little irritable. She’s an American, but she’s absorbed a lot of the culture over there, if you know what I mean. I’ve got this under control.”

The 98 lb aspiring Navy SEAL was assuring me that I should not be concerned after she was running up and down the aisle asking passengers where the woman with the “thingy” on her head was sitting. I believed her, though she would have been more convincing had she known what a hijab is. And been a hundred pounds heavier. And been a man with a gun.

As it was, I’d already heard quite enough to be concerned about how this flight was shaping up yesterday. I was on my way home to Denver after a long work trip on the east coast. The woman with the zebra hijab was in my row, and even before we took off, she’d wasted no time in provoking the other women in the row into panic by chatting about terrorism.  They responded by burying their faces in their books and by begging her to mind her own business. She then moved on to me, insisting that I witness some imaginary insult someone had done to her, and stating loudly to the whole section that “You see this?? This is TERROR!” I don’t even know what she was talking about. Perhaps she was upset that the flight attendants had not brought her before-take-off wine yet. But several things were clear: she was neither truly upset nor irritable in any way. She was relaxed and playing a part, and it was quite a performance.  She was also clearly an activist.  And that’s what worried me. Continue reading

Harlequin Romance, 2011 Version

posted by Ting
He grasped me firmly, but gently, just above my elbow and guided me into a room, his room. Then he quietly shut the door and we were alone. He approached me soundlessly, from behind, and spoke in a low, reassuring voice close to my ear.”Just relax.”
Without warning, he reached down and I felt his strong, calloused hands start at my ankles, gently probing, and moving upward along my calves, slowly but steadily. My breath caught in my throat.
I knew I should be afraid, but somehow I didn’t care. His touch was so experienced, so sure. When his hands moved up onto my thighs, I gave a slight shudder, and partly closed my eyes. My pulse was pounding. I felt his knowing fingers caress my abdomen, my ribcage. And then, as he cupped my firm, full breasts in his hands, I inhaled sharply.
Probing, searching, knowing what he wanted, he brought his hands to my shoulders, slid them down my tingling spine and into my panties. Although I knew nothing about this man, I felt oddly trusting and expectant. This is a man, I thought. A man used to taking charge. A man not used to taking ˜No” for an answer. A man who would tell me what he wanted. A man who would look into my soul and say . . . Continue reading
