The word of the day is irrelevant. What’s relevant is that irrelevant is a word that Dan Pfeiffer, an Obama spokesperson and aide, used at least three times when speaking about Obama’s recent hat trick of scandals. Like Susan Rice after Benghazi, Pfeiffer appeared on five Sunday shows this week, in an apparent attempt to spin, spin, spin away the blowback from the scandals. Continue reading

By now, almost everyone is aware of three scandals currently plaguing the Obama administration: Benghazi talking points, IRS targeting of conservatives, and the Department of Justice (DOJ) subpoenaing telephone records of AP reporters to investigate an alleged national security leak. Let’s look at that last scandal in more depth. Continue reading

From the poem “Mother” by Madison Julius Cawein
Oh, just to see her face again
A-smiling at the windowpane!
To see her standing at the door
And offering her arms once more,
As oft she did when, just a child,
She took me to her heart and smiled,
And hushed my cry and cured my pain
I’m going home to her again.
Happy Mother’s Day to all from WTPOTUS.

Who hasn’t been thrilled by the special effects in the movies of Ray Harryhausen? The legendary writer, movie producer, and inventor of Dynamation died two days ago, at the age of 92.
Who could ever forget that thrilling scene from JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS, when the skeleton militia arose, armed for battle, out of the fertile soil of Harryhausen’s imagination? It scared me then; it scares me still, 40 years after. Who’d ever seen the likes of that?!! Nobody.

Today is national Everybody Blog about Pigford Day, so WTPOTUS will do its part. Although we have known about and griped about this scandal for several years, unfortunately most of our fellow citizens, who are on the hook for the payments to these fake farmers, are kept in the dark, deliberately, by the lamestream media. That held true–at least until, inexplicably, the New York Times finally ran an in-depth story about the scandal, which involved compensating black “farmers” for alleged discrimination by the US Dept. of Agriculture. [emphasis added to quotes]

Another day, another set of questions about the many discrepancies in this evolving story about the Boston Marathon Islamist terrorist attack. Here are just a few:
After authorities claimed that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev engaged in a shootout with police from his hiding place in a boat, they now say that no weapons were found. Dzhokhar was unarmed, even though early news reports claimed he had “several weapons.”

Last week, the Senate voted down expanded background checks, which would have covered all “advertised” private gun sales. After the Boston Massacre of 4/15/2013, gun control advocates began predictably to call once again for more gun control legislation, and added control of the purchase of black powder, which allows a person to make or reload ammunition. As many news reports have pointed out: the Muslim Tsarnaev brothers had no permits to carry weapons, and yet they did, nonetheless. Continue reading

In early March, Dana Loesch first reported how a Missourian had uncovered some very troubling facts with regard to the way that information about concealed carry permit holders is handled in Missouri (MO). The citizen went to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to have his driver’s license updated with his concealed carry status. There he encountered a clerk who insisted that he provide identifying documents, such as a birth certificate, and allow them to be scanned. He understood that the scanned images would be transmitted to a third-party vendor as well as to the the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

That’s the face of Kermit Gosnell, a Pennsylvania abortionist who is currently on trial for murder. It’s also the face of evil. Don’t know his name? Not familiar with that face? Join the club. You’re far from alone, because his is a story that the mainstream media does not want to tell. Gosnell is on trial, has been on trial for nearly a month, and yet you wouldn’t know it if you got your news only from the mainstream media. Continue reading
