“Obama” Goes to the Oscars

It’s Oscar night and the guerrilla street artist has struck again.  This artist deserves an Academy Award:

Outstanding performance by a merry-andrew !

For the second time in as many months, a phantom street artist has bedazzled the USA from the Left Coast:

A rogue street artist has ambushed the 86th Academy Awards with a slew of street art posters poking fun at President Barack Obama and the Oscars. The posters, of unknown origin, feature the Oscar statue with Vladimir Lenin’s head and the title “OCZARS,” referring to the proliferation of “czars”–powerful officials with no congressional oversight–in the Obama administration.

Last month, the same or another like-minded artist slapped an Obama-mocking poster all over Southern California, where the man himself was playing golf. Those posters were spotted

outside the PGA’s Northern Trust golf tournament in Southern California near the Riviera Country Club. 

The “Sub Par” posters have also been spotted near the Palisades and Santa Monica, California

Mega-kudos to the mysterious prankster.

    “A 72-year-old substitute teacher at Westhill High School was put on suicide watch after he was allegedly caught masturbating in a school hallway while looking at school children Wednesday morning shortly after the school day began. …

    According to police, six students passed the location while Luecke was masturbating. Police said they are in the process of identifying the students to determine if there’s a need for counseling. …”

    HOWEVER, nobody’s offering any children counseling after being subjected to Miley’s “twerking”, Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance, OR her most recent “song”, in which she “sings”:

    Driver, roll up the partition, please
    I don’t need you seeing ‘Yonce on her knees
    Oh he so horny, yeah he want to f***
    He popped all my buttons, and he ripped my blouse
    He Monica Lewinsky-ed all on my gown …

    Shouldn’t that be, ” he Bill Clinton-ed all on my gown?” But I digress.

    Will We the People have to pay for counseling for Sasha and Malia after their being exposed to B? After all, she’ll be around like a big balloon, seeing as how Barry believes that she’s the best “role-model” for his daughters, evah. Oh, yeah!

    http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/president-barack-obama-beyonce-could-not-be-a-better-role-model-for-my-girls-2012189

    In Sept. 2012, Barry spoke about his good friends B (aka Bey, aka ‘Yonce) and J (the horny one):

    “After taking the stage, Obama joked that wife First Lady Michelle Obama and their girls Sasha, 11, and Malia, 14, were ‘mad at me because they aren’t here.’

    ‘To J and B, thank you so much for your friendship,” Obama told his hosts. “Beyonce could not be a better role model for my girls.'”

    Has he changed his mind by now, ya think?

    • I forgot to say, “Skank.”

      Was thinking more about this last night. I would guess that the teacher, who had a clean background check, is mentally disturbed, had a stroke, took some medication that did something bad to his brain, or otherwise has some physical problem in his brain. Lying on the floor? He’s a pariah. Going to be labeled a sex offender, a pedophile, arrested and prosecuted, probably.

      The others? They’re ROLE MODELS. Kids observing the older man, on the floor (what if he was suffering ill effects of Viagra?), are going to be analyzed to see if they need counseling. For what? As if kids today haven’t seen everything (see: Beyonce and Miley, e.g.).

      Kids observing these skanks are supposed to cheer them on and admire them and want to emulate them. What’s the diff between them and the old man? He at least had the decency to hide in a stairwell, not do his thing on the world stage.

    THIS makes me smile!

    I’ve not been watching them (always a snooze fest) but someone posted that Ellen quipped either 12 Years a Slave wins or the country is racist. 🙂

    • I believe it. And, of course, it did win. And so did the actress. I heard someone on radio today say that it was the best movie he’s never going to watch again. So the lady who was in the movie with Bruce Dern, who’s closing in on 90 and certainly the end of her career, loses out, so they can be politically correct. The actress in the slave movie has a long life ahead of her in which to win an Academy Award (except I suspect we’re not going to see much of her, again, but who knows?). I heard she’s in that Non-Stop movie, which, of course, is the one that makes a 9/11 victim and veteran the terrorist. She’s from Kenya, btw. A relative of Barry’s? 🙂

  5. Barry is really mad at Putin. 🙂

    • That’s about the limit of it. And he’s cancelling his trip to Russia, thus denying the Russian people the glory of his presence.

      I actually think we have no business over there. Let the corrupt and thankless EU protect their own sorry asses, which we already saved once and why should we spend one dime or risk one drop of USA blood for them? Let the French fight the Ruskies. It’s their EU, if they can keep it. God help Poland, though. Always in the middle.

  6. HYPOCRISY, thy name is DemoncRAT: http://www.montanademocrats.org/node/441

    “The Montana Democratic Party today called on Congressman Steve Daines, who claims in his latest TV ad to be a “fifth-generation Montanan,” to clear up confusion about his roots by releasing his birth certificate.

    Daines’ latest ad asserts he “grew up in Bozeman, a fifth-generation Montanan,” which directly contradicts earlier versions of his biography when he claimed: “I’m a third-generation Montanan, kind of that classic Montana kid.”

    The Congressman is so desperate for ties to Montana that he’s confused the facts and himself.

    The problem? Daines was actually born in southern California.

    The Montana Democratic Party said a simple release of Daines’ birth certificate will clear up any confusion for Montanans.

    “No matter what generation Congressman Daines claims to be, he’s a stranger to both the facts and Montana values – and Montanans deserve the truth,” said Bryce Bennett, a fifth generation Montanan. “Montanans can’t afford a Washington politician who thinks he can get away with fooling the people he’s supposed to represent.” …”

    Mind you, there’s no CONSTITUTIONAL requirement that I know of that a person, to be a Congressman, must be either a third- or a fifth-generation state resident. Nevertheless, look what the DemoncRAT says:

    “Montanans deserve the truth.” Uh, huh. And so do We the People of the USA deserve the TRUTH about OBAMA.

    “Montanans can’t afford a Washington politician who thinks he can get away with fooling the people …’ Uh, huh. And so do We the Peopl e of the USA. We can’t afford a POtuS who thinks he can get away with fooling everyone.

    What a bunch of phonies they are. APPLY THE RULES EQUALLY. Daines should say he’ll release his documents when Barry does the same.

  8. First he said she would, then he said she won’t and that he didn’t agree that she would. Emails between Lois Lerner’s lawyer and Issa’s peeps PROVE otherwise. So, after the news broke, WHO got to them, do you think? If she does agree, will she take a plane? Best not.

  9. Putin making nicey nice with the Red thugs in China. What message will SHE carry there this month? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/03/michelle-obama-china_n_4890177.html

    “Michelle Obama plans a weeklong solo visit to China this month that includes meetings with China’s first lady and high school and university students.

    It will be her first visit to the Asian economic powerhouse.

    In an announcement Monday on the White House blog, the first lady says a China visit is important because it is the most populous country in the world, with more than 1.3 billion people, and is an important world actor.

    Mrs. Obama will travel from March 19-26, spending several days in the capital of Beijing before stops in the central city of Xian and the southwestern city of Chengdu, the White House said. Her schedule includes a meeting with Peng Liyuan, the wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping. …”

    I guess she hasn’t spent ENOUGH of our money yet.

    • I swear I didn’t read this or even see this article before I posted the link to the Mooch retrospective, above. But tell me how the AP “reporter” can possibly write CRAP, totally unfounded CRAP, like this:

      “Mrs. Obama grew up in a poor Chicago family, but earned degrees from two of America’s best universities.”

      Truth is not what’s true; truth is whatever narrative they say you ARE to believe.

      Guess what? The daughters and mother Robinson are going along for the ride, too. Another VACATION for them on the taxpayers’ dime. They want school children to follow their excellent adventure as Mooch’s hench people “blog” about the trip.

      This answers my question about how this person can write such CRAP: https://twitter.com/dsupervilleap Does she know better and prefers to lie for them, or does she simply keep her head in the sand and swallow the official BS, lest her idols fall from their pedestal?

      If I tweeted, I would most certainly set her straight. I’d give her the UK story about the solid middle class upbringing Mooch had and the big home in a nice neighborhood that she grew up in.

      • yeah maybe they’ll take the children along to visit mark at that orphange he claims to support. Wow , what a ‘cultural’ experience!!!Mark can show off his new book to MOOChelle and tell her to tell Barak “I’m setting the record Straight ,seeing as how he didn’t tell the whole family truth in his book!” We’ll see how that would go over with MOO. She could body slam Mark with those powerful arms of hers. Whoa! or crush his piano fingers in the piano lid. ouch! Maybe mark will ask her to join him and PIG OUT at one of his many barbecue restaurants in China.
        Maybe Moo has some special secret information for Mark or she’s to tell him to stop making problems for Barack in those interviews or els!!! Or maybe she’s Obama’s messenger for the Chinese leaders!!!! And if she and the children are seen eating ice cream somewhere then I know that this ice cream thing is a signal that all was taken care of, mission accomplished in Obamaland>

        • If anybody has any need to get secret information from or to anybody they can always call the office in San Antonio. 180 degrees. done.

        • Papoose, excellent asumption. I hadn’t thought about that lately. Speaking of san Antonio , wonder if all the new school security systems contracts are going to his company. Or federal contracts…I know they do love to employ minorities. Guess what , it was Looking for other addresses and numbers for Muchelle, is how I found the connections to Joseph’s whole crowd, so you’re not far off in your thinking at all.

        • Ha! I totally forgot about how “Uncle Mark” could show them around. That would be SOME “reality” show if things go down the way you imagine. I’d love to see that. For sure Mark would be out of Mooch’s weight class. She’d even have a longer reach. I doubt that Mooch, no matter what she says, has given up BBQ PORK. It’s an IL tradition.

      • Hanging out with Jesse Jackson’s kids didn’t hurt, I’m sure.

        Ward Leaders… cozy, comfy, running the show.

      • OK, there is something seriously wrong with the trip to China. Makes no sense. With what Russia is doing right now and China saying support them (at least I think I read that. Amidst this The Mrs. AND Girls AND Granny are going to China? LIke, is this supposed to be some sort of diplomatic negotion meeting that is like, a total success, and Buttinski becomes a world renowned foreign influence to boost her resume? President’s wives and family, you know, those most precious to them, do NOT go into the enemy camp at a time like this. OK. I got it. They are one with China? Oooooh, maybe they are going to defect??? snark.

        • BUTTinski, partially. But then there’s always the concern that somebody wants the family in a “safe” place at a specific time. Or, to put a hopeful spin on it, somewhere a certain person can’t be indicted. With a “family” over there, with presumably plenty of money, to ease the transition (Uncle Mark and lovely wife). They believe that Mooch is such an asset that she alone can raise Barry’s poll numbers, although why that matters is beyond me. He’s a LAME DUCK. Butt then again, there’s the probably not-totally-unfounded FEAR that she’s upping her own poll numbers for political reasons, GOD HELP US.

          • Michelle is not the beloved. Just look at what happened to Jimmy Fallon. Many tuned out after all the hype of her being on the show during opening week. Most could care less what she has to say.

          • There’s a plan for sure, but since when have we been privy to their deceiving ways. Personal contact with those in China is much better than anything other avenue when delivering information. Your guess is as good as mine, just hope they break out the baby back pork ribs when she comes. They’re so delicious and messy, Seeing though as how Mark is vegan, (wonder why he won’t eat critter food) , I guess that’s all the more for Mooooochelle.

            • Ooooooh. You’re making me hungry, but it’s hard to BBQ when it’s 11 degrees and there’s snow on the ground. However, it IS possible to have them delivered from the local Chinese restaurant. YUM. Baby Backs. 🙂

          • Rosemary Woodhouse

            Oooooor- he knows something is going to happen and wants his family, quite literally, out of town. See what a cynic I’ve become? In reality, it’s a linear, logical conclusion. Again, I hope I am wrong!

            • Did you see that they’re going on vacation to Florida with the girls, first? Then he’s off to Saudi and Europe and to visit the Pope and awe him with his magnificence and then try to use the Pope as political fodder, whilst Mooch and daughters and mother Robinson go to Red China.

          • wonder what the trip to China via florida is for…could be the need to clean out some old files and closets. Maybe looking for somepapers Mark left behind.

            • I just heard on Rush Limbaugh’s show that the trip is “at risk” on account of the Ukraine situation. AS IF Barry will stay in DC and skip a vacation. A caller said that it’s BS–the people who live on the island in the Florida Keys have already been warned that the airstrip and the golf course will be SHUT DOWN. The Obamas are renting FIVE houses in a very exclusive area. The woman said he inconveniences everybody and, as he criticizes the “1%”, he avails himself of all the perks that THEY worked for, earned, and bought for themselves. Knowing Barry, he probably ENJOYS inconveniencing people, especially rich WHITE people. I’m sure Mooch got off on shutting down Mount Rushmore so she didn’t have to rub elbows with (white) hoi polloi.

            • A secret meeting with Cuban authorities?

          • Cuba! Miri,you read my mind. Could meet with some interesting people down there.

          • Well, I suppose I should take that as a good thing. Do you know what I’m thinking right now? Today I got almost hacked when going to the Trowbridge site. And just while ago using bing to search something I got whacky redirects after typing in Zullo’s name. Everytime I’ve gone to the trowbridge sites something weird happens to me.

            • Yes, maybe you’re finally getting through our thick skulls. 🙂 I wouldn’t be surprised if you got hacked at Martha’s. I don’t know if the obots attack her like they do Orly, or if it’s obots doing the attacking to visitors.

    • There’s those dates again.

      Lord, hear our prayer.

    I NEED COUNSELING AFTER VIEWING THAT VIDEO. The “cutesy”, CHILDISH attitude is totally repulsive and I can imagine a lot, a lot, of pervs getting off on it.

    When that girl was only days old, lying in her crib, looking up so sweetly, what do you think her parents’ PLAN was for her? This?

    • Zenway, there’s a recap of the Obama “passed through” Sarah’s hands in Kenya as an orphan. It occurs to me that maybe there’s an even more horrid tale behind this, something that was covered up for political reasons. Mark said that he and Barry, as babies, were ripped apart. He cries as he recalls his mother’s legs, that he clung to, AS IF perhaps that’s ALL he remembers of his mother, other than her screams as his father beat her. What if the violence didn’t stop with beating but escalated, resulting in two (or more) orphans? What happens when Americans adopt foreign-born children? I believe that in the 1960s, those children had to be naturalized. It’s very, very complex and depends upon so many factors: Did SAD lose her U.S. citizenship? Who had legal custody of Barry when he came to Hawaii in 1971? Is he illegitimate? Is he adopted? Are either of his named parents really his biological parents? If you read the law that was in effect from 1952 through 1978 and then to 2001, you can see that very early on SAD would have had a motive to rig this system in Barry’s favor, which is something that the obots argue that she wouldn’t, because she didn’t know Barry would run for POTUS. But just to get him into the USA to go to Punahou might have required a lot of illegal finagling. What kind of VISA did he have when he came to Hawaii, if his adoption by Lolo was FINALIZED in Indonesia AND his mother had lost her citizenship? That could be WHY BHO Sr. went to Hawaii–to protest and then, they hoped, have the entire adoption overturned. Or maybe to “legitimize” him. So it all depends upon the FACTS of his status, which we don’t know.

      This problem with adopted kids is something that, iirc, McCain was trying to “fix”, too. He was concerned about all the little Chinese girls being adopted by U.S. citizens. So after 2001, they became citizens upon entering the USA and living with a U.S. citizen parent who had custody of them. However, they’re NOT “natural born citizens”. Arnold Schwarzenegger was promoting a constitutional amendment to remove the NBC requirement just for those types of citizens–adopted ones who are considered naturalized, but not natural born. http://www.sfgate.com/opinion/openforum/article/Schwarzenegger-s-presidential-ambitions-raise-4921070.php I’m pretty sure that I read that McCain supported this because he has at least one adopted child himself. From India. Remember?

      • Just another thought: If the truth is somewhere in the intricacies of this law for adopted children, and if the supporting or opposing documents have been corrupted or disappeared, that may be EXACTLY why the Republicans don’t say anything. To do so would be to go out on a limb with no supporting evidence, which is probably something the DemoncRATS counted upon. The truth may be lost in the sands of time. We are told that documents in both Kenya AND Indonesia were scrubbed. We KNOW that they were scrubbed here. To make allegations without any proof to back them up would be political suicide, especially considering this is allegedly the “first African-American” president. They can KNOW, just like we KNOW, that something’s very wrong; but if it can’t be proven, then it’s a lose/lose situation to open one’s mouth, which is why I believe they’re hoping that the American people save their butts by throwing the DemoncRATS out of power in the Senate in Nov., so they can skate through the next two years and then, at least, hope and pray that Barry leaves office in 2017, as he’s supposed to under the Constitution, but which by then may be well and truly shredded.

    • Disgusting.

    • In about an hour ago on facebook page

      HSLDA
      BREAKING NEWS!!! The Romeikes can stay!!!

      Today, a Supervisor with the Department of Homeland Security called a member of our legal team to inform us that the Romeike family has been granted “indefinite deferred status”. This means that the Romeikes can stay in the United States permanently (unless they are convicted of a crime, etc.)

      This is an incredible victory that can only be credited to our Almighty God.

      We also want to thank those of who spoke up on this issue–including that long ago White House petition. We believe that the public outcry made this possible while God delivered the victory.

      This is an amazing turnaround in 24 hours. Praise the Lord.

      Proverbs 21: 1 “The king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the Lord, He guides it wherever He pleases.”
      ~~Michael Farris

      • Praise God!

      • I had a gut feeling that this wasn’t “news” that would benefit Barry, so they’d relent, but only AFTER “winning” the case.

        • Wonder what they have coming down the pipe that this precedent needed to be set?

          • Probably to keep Christians who object to “gay rights” or are persecuted as “homophobes” from being allowed to get asylum here based on that. Note the part about how

            German laws that outlaw homeschooling do not constitute persecution.

            “The goal in Germany is for an open, pluralistic society,” the Justice Department wrote in a legal brief last year. “Teaching tolerance to children of all backgrounds helps to develop the ability to interact as a fully functioning citizen in Germany.””

            So you can already see that the DOJ somehow believes that even when Christians in Germany are forced to give up their parental rights, they’re still not “persecuted”. The DOJ is actually arguing that any government can TAKE AWAY parental rights in order to indoctrinate their children with whatever the STATE believes is necessary to teach (the state definition) of “tolerance” so the kids all become (the state definition of) fully functioning citizens.

            So an “open, pluralistic society” means if they object on religious grounds to the laws that are deemed necessary to teach “tolerance” or promote “fully functioning citizen(s)”, then they don’t qualify for asylum as being persecuted people, which they, of course, ARE. We can foresee that if an EU country equates Christian preaching with “hate speech”, then Christians who want asylum here in the US, to avail themselves of our (once?) religious freedom, will no longer be able to do so. Similarly, if the EU passes those laws calling “dissing” of islam’s prophet “hate speech” or “intolerant”, then Christians who disagree will not be able to use their objections to those laws to get asylum here. Of course, Barry ALREADY grants asylum to muslims and gays from all over the world on the grounds of “persecution”.

        • The campaign ads were writing themselves. White Christian family deported. ILLEGAL aliens and Barry’s aunt and uncle NOT deported. DREAMERS not deported. People of color not deported. But whites with little kids who probably only know the USA as their home? You’re outa here. Doesn’t look good for DemoncRATs, but Holder just can’t help himself. LAWS DO NOT EXIST TO PROTECT WHITE PEOPLE. How many times does he have to try to prove it?

  11. Is this kind of extracurricular activity LEGAL? Is it grounds to deny her re-entrance into the USA? Was Arredondo with her, one wonders?
    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/03/code-pink-leader-medea-benjamin-attacked-by-egyptian-police-then-deported-to-turkey/

    Medea Benjamin was detained and attacked by police in Egypt before being deported. The far left radical has a long history of supporting the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood. [Outlawed in Egypt, of course, not here, obviously. Huma Weiner?]

    Several news accounts report that Susan ‘Medea’ Benjamin, founder of the terrorist support group Code Pink, has been deported from Egypt to Turkey after being barred from entering the country.

    Benjamin was attempting to use Egypt as a staging ground to support Hamas-led Gaza as she has done in previous visits. Code Pink also worked with the Muslim Brotherhood in past trips to Cairo to overthrow the government of former President Hosni Mubarak. [Hmmm. What else did they work with the MB on? Perhaps right here in the USA?]

    Before being deported, Benjamin live-tweeted her detention in a Cairo airport jail cell. Her last tweet was, “Help. They broke my arm. Egypt police.” …”

    For some cruel reason, this leaves me ROFLOL. btw, they didn’t break her arm, but she claims they “dislocated” it. She’s a dislocation in and of herself.

  15. Citizen Wells has an interesting article and comments about Lois Lerner (good links, too, for the background story). Lois Lerner, it’s said, is AFRAID FOR HER LIFE. I think I hinted at that yesterday. http://citizenwells.wordpress.com/2014/03/04/lois-lerner-fears-for-her-life-house-oversight-and-government-reform-committee-wednesday-march-5-2014-attorney-bill-taylor-lerner-pleads-fifth-amendment-rights-rep-darrell-issa/#comments

    She’s supposed to testify tomorrow, but we’ll see if she does. She will show up tomorrow only to ask for a week’s delay. Her attorney says making her come to testify is risky because she’s gotten a lot of “death threats”. You know this is a ploy to demonize the Tea Party, as they usually do, of course. Allegedly her lawyer gave the committee the proof. So I’m sure Holder’s tracking down the perps, right? Will they be Tea Partiers or OBOTS? Judging by previous planted dirty tricks, I would say obots. She doesn’t have to fear the Tea Party, but if she truthfully testifies her greatest risk will be done with. If I were her, I’d spill the beans now. Of course, then what? Ask the DOJ for witness protection? Ha. Lie down with dogs and get up with fleas. She’s Fuddy II. Poor saps who went along, thinking that the ends justify the means. Under the bus. Or plane. Whatever.

          • I really got a kick out of that one. it looks so serious too.
            now here’s an old IRS thing. If you only listen to the first five minutes of it , it’s worth it..about income taxes. Sherry Jackson worked for IRS, but she became an advocate against the IRS, so she got 3 yrs. prison time.

          “Former IRS official Lois Lerner refused for a second time on Wednesday to testify about her role in a scheme to target conservative organizations that applied for tax-exempt status during President Barack Obama’s first term in office.

          Lerner risks arrest if she is found in contempt of Congress.

          The House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee ruled on June 21, 2013 that Lerner, formerly in charge of the IRS’s Exempt Organizations office, waived her right to invoke the Fifth Amendment during a May 22 hearing when she insisted in a lengthy opening statement that she had done nothing wrong.

          Wednesday’s continuation of that hearing was a brief affair, with Oversight Committee Chairman Republican Rep. Darrell Issa adjourning it after Lerner cited the Fifth amendment again and refused to answer questions. …”

          The UK’s take, which will probably be FAR MORE accurate than anything in our lamestream. btw, Cummings pitched a hissy fit in order to DISTRACT from the story about Lerner pleading the Fif, AGAIN.

          • More:

            Four separate Supreme Court rulings have confirmed the right of Congress to incarcerate Americans for contempt, although it hasn’t been done in more than 75 years.

            A July 2007 Congressional Research Service Report spells out the process: ‘The individual is brought before the House or Senate by the sergeant at arms, tried at the bar of the body, and can be imprisoned in the Capitol jail.’

            Lerner’s lawyer William Taylor has played a cat-and mouse game with committee Republicans for the past week, at first saying she faced death threats and wouldn’t appear, then offering to produce her at a sworn deposition, and at one point saying she would only answer questions if she were immune from prosecution. [An innocent person doesn’t NEED immunity from prosecution; who would prosecute her, anyway? Holder?]

            Catherine Engelbrech, national coordinator of True the Vote, a conservative group that claims it was targeted by the IRS, the ATF and other agencies, said Wednesday that ‘when an alphabet soup of government agencies descended on and investigated me and my family, I didn’t have the option of doing what Lerner did today. I had to submit to invasive and aggressive investigations despite the fact that I had done absolutely nothing wrong.'”

            Will they follow through or will they CAVE?

          • I would suggest that they have her arrested asap, before she goes Fuddy. Some are suggesting that she’s been promised a pardon, anyway, so long as she holds out. If I were she, I wouldn’t count on that.

        “A House chairman probing the IRS scandal on Wednesday said that President Obama has reneged on a promise to have his aides cooperate with the investigation, forcing the Ways and Means Committee to conduct a dragnet for emails and documents needed to smoke out the truth.

        Rep. Dave Camp also revealed that federal agents conducting an investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s bid to punish Tea Party and conservative critics of the president have yet to talk to a single target of the scandal. …”

        Some “investigation”.

      “BHOF’s website lists the foundation’s physical address as 107 S. West St. #401 in Alexandria, Virginia, a location that actually houses only a UPS store. “They probably just rent a mailbox here or receive mail here,” said one UPS employee there in May 2013. Equally problematic is the address listed in BHOF’s IRS filings—4201 Wilson Blvd., Suite 110-152 in Arlington, Virginia—which houses only a marketing center for a drug-and-alcohol treatment organization known as A Better Today Recovery Services. When questioned about BHOF in May 2013, not a single employee in A Better Today’s office had ever heard of the foundation.

      From 2008-11, BHOF operated illegally as a nonprofit group and falsely claimed tax-exempt status—for which it had not yet formally applied. The foundation finally submitted its 2010 application for nonprofit, tax-exempt status on May 23, 2011; seven days later, it submitted its filings for 2008 and 2009. Within just one month of these filings—on June 26, 2011—Lois Lerner, the senior official who headed the IRS’s tax-exempt organizations office, signed paperwork granting tax-exempt status to BHOF. This promptness represented a stark contrast to the experience of many conservative organizations that, beginning in 2010, had been intentionally forced (by Lerner’s office) to wait more than three years, in some cases, for approval. Moreover, Lerner broke with the norms of tax-exemption approval by making BHOF’s tax-exempt status retroactive to December 2008.

      According to Ken Boehm, chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center: “The Obama Foundation raised money on its web page by falsely claiming to be a tax deductible. This bogus charity … had not even applied and yet subsequently got retroactive tax-deductible status.” Boehm described Abon’go Malik Obama’s attempt to raise money under the nonprofit banner as “common law fraud and potentially even federal mail fraud.””

    A minor miracle. Some DemoncRAT senators helped the Republicans blog Mumia’s lawyer from becoming head of the DOJ Civil Rights Div. Predictably, Harry Reid says they’re “racist” for not supporting an NAACP lawyer who defended an infamous COP KILLER.

    http://dailycaller.com/2013/05/16/embattled-irs-official-lois-lerners-husbands-law-firm-hosted-an-obama-campaign-organizing-meeting/

  18. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official who apologized for targeting conservative nonprofit groups for extra scrutiny is married to an attorney whose firm hosted a voter registration organizing event for the 2012 Obama re-election campaign, praised President Obama’s policy work, and had one of its partners appointed by Obama to a key ambassadorship.

    IRS Exempt Organizations Division director Lois G. Lerner, who has been described as “apolitical” in mainstream press coverage of the IRS scandal, is married to tax attorney Michael R. Miles, a partner at the law firm Sutherland Asbill & Brennan. The firm is based in Atlanta but has a number of offices including in Washington, D.C., where Miles works.

    The 400-attorney firm hosted an organizing meeting at its Atlanta office for people interested in helping with voter registration for the Obama re-election campaign.

  23. And the Oscar goes tooooo

    The Spies haunting our elected representatives communications!!

    Can this really be happening? Can they listen to attorney’s and clients phone conversations? Can they listen to your Judge when he’s conferring with the prosecution and the defense teams? Can they listen to the cross parties making closed door deals and settlements?

    Spying on You.

    • They do it because, apparently, they CAN, so long as the rest of the feckless gummint allows them to. Coup. On the other hand, these are DemoncRATS accusing the CIA, which, we’re told, is full of progressives. That was apparent from the Plame bogus “scandal”. They’re claiming they were spied on with regard to an investigation into a GWB program. What’s in that 6300-page investigative report that the DemoncRATS want revealed? Something negative about GWB? Something they can use to distract? WHEN do DemoncRATS ever criticize Barry’s administration about anything, except under his orders for Kabuki theater purposes?

      “The subtle reference in a Tuesday letter from Senator Mark Udall to Obama, seeking to enlist the president’s help in declassifying a 6,300-page inquiry by the committee into torture carried out by CIA interrogators after 9/11, threatens to plunge the White House into a battle between the agency and its Senate overseers.”

      Barry WOULD want any report about the USA torturing Muslims to be made public, would he not? It would serve SO MANY purposes in this election year. Distract, delay, prevaricate, obfuscate, change the subject, “he did it, too”, etc. There’s something wrong with this story. John Brennan is in the middle of it. It could be an attempt to make a scandal BIGGER, in the media’s eyes, than the breaking scandals of Benghazi and the IRS targeting. He’ll probably unilaterally release this “torture” report (or better yet, HIS summary of the key points) TOMORROW afternoon, to take the Sunday shows’ focus OFF Lois Lerner. KABUKI THEATER. It’s what they do. We shall see if, in this case, I’m correct.
