#20 NEW Scandalpaloza Scandal? EPA Targeted Conservative Groups (6/5/13) Is the scandalpalooza picking up scandal #5? (Benghazi, IRS, DOJ/Press, Fast and Furious). This time something smells rotten at the EPA. The Environmental Protection Agency is facing Inspector General and Congressional probes regarding political targeting of conservative groups. The EPA is not preventing groups from becoming tax exempt, but charging conservative groups for information while giving freebies to liberal groups. The fees applied to Freedom of Information Act requests -- allegedly, the EPA waived them for liberal groups far more often than it did for conservative ones.
#19 Obama Selects Woman Who Wanted US To Invade Israel Samantha Power, As New UN Ambassador (6/5/13) To Replace Susan Rice as Ambassador to the United Nations, President Obama chose Samatha Power, a woman who once said that the US should send in its military to Israel to enforce a Mid East peace. How long do you think it will be before Power uses that board as tool to de-legitimize Israel? Power was a foreign policy adviser to the Obama campaign in 2008 when she blamed the Jews for the criticism of then Candidate Obama's foreign policy platform.

Wages War of Intimidation Against Cover-up Whistleblower (5/18/13) Last week came the revelation that the State Department may have been covering up bad behavior within its ranks. The information about using drug use soliciting prostitutes, and having sex with minors was first released to CBS News via an internal memo handed to them by Aurelia Fedenisn, a former State Department inspector general investigator. Since the information was released Ms. Fedenisn (and her kids) have been under constant harassment and threats as the department is waging an intimidation campaign to stop her.
#17 Al Sharpton Wants DOJ Action in Zimmerman Case: But DOJ Should Investigate Freddy's Massacre FIRST (7/14/13) After calling the ruling a an atrocity last night on MSNBC professional bigot Al Sharpton appeared on Meet the Press this morning to give his reaction to the acquittal of George Zimmerman. Sharpton promised that he and the feds were examining further legal options against Zimmerman. Sharpton is calling for the justice department to get involved.

Mayra Rentas . . . Olga Garcia . . . Garnette Ramautar . . . Kareem Brunner the seven victims of the massacre at Freddy's Fashion Mart.

#16 DISGUSTING! 24 Moore Oklahoma Children Dead But Dem Senator Whitehouse Uses Tragedy To Bash GOP (5/20/13) What a disgusting individual. There is no other way for it to describe him. As I watch the unimaginable devastation in Moore Oklahoma, where 51 people have been reported dead so far, where 24 young children drowned in the basement of an elementary school-- one disgusting individual Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse is using the tragedy in an attempt to score political points. Whitehouse blamed the tornadoes on Global Warming and on the GOP for not believing in the global warming hoax.
#15 KARMA'S A BITCH! White House Knew Fisker Automotive Was in Trouble-- Gave Them Your Money Anyway (4/24/13) When one looks at the front grill of a Fisker Karma, the first model luxury electric car made by Fisker Automotive (see picture above), it seems to be laughing. It's as if it were saying "ha, ha, I got your money!" Indeed it did as the company received a major part of its funding from the pockets of U.S. taxpayers. The automaker ceased production this past summer and has fired most of its staff. According to documents obtained by the Associated Press, the White House continued to play Sugar Daddy to Fisker even though it knew the company was in trouble.

#13 Chevy Announces "Fire-Sale" on Volt-- As Sales For The Government-Ordered Product Continue to Tank! (8/6/13) The Chevy Volt was ordered to market by GM's owners (the Obama Administration) before it was fully developed and before there was consumer demand. This president wanted the Volt to be the "signature" product of the new General Motors and his "global warming" strategy. Since its introduction, General Motors can't even give away the Chevy Volt. Despite rebates and heavy government subsidies sales of the "plug-in hybrid" continue to be way below projections. According to Kelly Blue Book, GM has sold only 11,643 Volts so far this year. In 2012, GM sold 23,461 of the cars.
#12 Marathon Bombing Brings Out Liberal Douche-Baggery (4/15/13) The Marathon bombing brought out the usual douche bag type comments from our nation's leading liberals.
