[Judicial Watch] President Obama's trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, was a key player in the effort to cover up that Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress about the Fast and Furious scandal, according to public records obtained by Judicial Watch.
The information is part of a Department of Justice (DOJ) "Vaughn index" detailing records about the gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious. JW had to sue the agency for the records after the Obama administration failed to provide them under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). A federal court ordered the DOJ to provide the records over the agency's objections. Yesterday JW reported on the broad information in the records, including that Obama asserted executive privilege for Holder's wife as part of the administration's efforts to cover up the scandal. I remain confident that Klingon Director John Brennan and Mexican cartel links will eventually surface. Numerous Other Gov't Agencies are simply running interference.
[PowerLine] In this one-minute clip, trying to shore up the floundering Coakley campaign in Massachusetts, Hillary Clinton displays her ignorance of how the world works not once, but twice. First she assures her audience that raising the minimum wage doesn’t cost jobs, it leads to job gains. (“Our entry-level employees will now cost $15 an hour? Great! Let’s hire two!”) Of course, no one ever asks: if that’s true, Hillary, then why are you so cheap? Why not raise the minimum wage to $100 an hour?
You have to watch the clip for her second gaffe:
“Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.” Where do they come from, then? Does the stork deliver them? Are they legislated by Congress? Two equally plausible alternatives.
IIRC, in the UK the Brit Govt can basically frack andor drill for fossil fuels, etc. on allegedly
"private" land widout the permission of "private landowners" because the latter seemingly do not actually or legally own their land - the Govt. does, as part of the price ordinary Brits pay for benefitting from the massive Brit Socialist Welfare-Nanny State.
