House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, once again, is calling for an investigation, but this time it’s over allegations that ACORN related group New York Communities for Change engaged in fraud through its participation in the Occupy Wall Street protests. On Monday, Issa sent a letter off to Attorney General Loretta Lynch of the Eastern District of New York to launch a probe into allegations first reported by FoxNews.com that NYCC may have “solicited donations from union members under false pretenses and misappropriated those funds to support the protesters.”
On Thursday, the House voted to restrict eligibility for Medicaid, insurance exchanges and other aspects of President Obama’s healthcare reform legislation. Approved by the House was H.R. 2576, 262-157, with the help of 26 Democrats and the support of the Obama administration. The CBO has said as many as 1 million people could be affected by the restrictions, which, among other things, would include Social Security benefits as income in determining eligibility.
In just a couple of weeks, the U.S. Postal Service expects to be insolvent, barring intervention by a divided Congress bogged down by partisan sniping. The agency which delivers almost half the world’s mail and employs more than half a million Americans, lost $3.1 billion in its most recent quarter and expects to default next month on a massive health benefits payment after reaching its $15 billion borrowing limit.
Two years ago, Attorney General Eric Holder started an anti gun PR blitz that blamed the Second Amendment and law-abiding gun owners for violent drug crime and murder in Mexico. Back then both Holder and the Administration said 90% of the guns used by Mexican drug cartels were being supplied by American gun dealers.
And the mainstream media backed Holder, without even taking time to check out the facts. Soon though, the truth finally surfaced, in the form of leaked communications from Obama’s State Department, which proved beyond any doubt that the main source of guns and artillery for Mexican drug cartels was Central America and not the United States.
