We all know that several people that voted for Obama had no clue about who he was or what he stood for. Many voted for free stuff or the simple fact that he was black.
It is clearly seen that this is the attitude of several people that voted for him. And yes, these same people want to vote for Hillary. Why?

Could the IRS do anything to make itself more unpopular? Apparently, things are far from over with the agency’s targeting of conservative political groups.
Emails obtained by Judicial Watch and released yesterday indicate that the Obama administration lied when it tried to pin the scandal on IRS employees in an Ohio branch office. In fact, the Washington, D.C., office of the IRS was coordinating with the employees to hold up tea party groups’ applications for nonprofit status and subject them to extra scrutiny.
At the heart of the controversy is Lois Lerner, who was head of the division that approved nonprofit applications at the time.
“This latest revelation by Judicial Watch showing that the IRS targeting of conservative organizations was being run by its Washington office demonstrates that the House acted correctly when it held Lois Lerner in contempt,” said Heritage legal expert Hans von Spakovsky.
The House voted last week to hold Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress for refusing to answer questions about the IRS scandal. But it’s up to Attorney General Eric Holder to take any action – the first step of which would be forcing her to testify – and that hasn’t happened.
Von Spakovsky said:
Lerner claimed that this problem originated in the Cincinnati office of the IRS, so it is pretty clear she was misleading the public and congressional investigators. The contempt citation needs to be enforced and if the Justice Department refuses to do so, it will be another example of unethical behavior by a law enforcement agency that has repeatedly failed to adhere to its duty to enforce the law on an objective, nonpartisan basis.
In other words, the odds aren’t great that Lerner will face real consequences.
But perhaps the worst news is that the Obama administration has been working behind the scenes to change the rules for political activism – permanently.
In a new paper, von Spakovsky details how the administration has proposed rules for the IRS that “appear to be an attempt to implement the ‘inappropriate criteria’ used by the IRS to target tea party and other conservative organizations applying for tax-exempt status.”
Turning the IRS’s targeting of these organizations into actual rules, he explains, would:
-ignore Supreme Court precedents and the Internal Revenue Code;
-fail to provide clear guidance to citizens and organizations attempting to comply with the Code and
accompanying regulations; and
-threaten to restrict or violate the First Amendment rights of Americans.
The chairman of the House select committee on Benghazi announced his first high-profile hire for the week-old panel on Thursday, tapping a former House general counsel as staff director.
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) selected Smith-Free Group vice chairman Phil Kiko to be the majority staff director for the committee.
“He has a proven record of effective leadership and management, and I am pleased to have him on our team as we conduct a serious, fact-driven investigation to ensure our fellow Americans know the full truth about what happened in Benghazi,” Gowdy said in a statement.
Kiko first came to Capitol Hill in 1997 as a senior member of Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner’s (R-Wis.) staff. He stayed a decade and then moved to Foley and Lardner, a Milwaukee-based law firm, where he remained until 2010. In December 2010, after House Republicans took the majority, Kiko became staff director at the House Administration Committee under Chairman Dan Lungren of California. After Lungren lost in 2012, Kiko joined the Smith-Free Group, a lobbying firm, where he represented entities like Mastercard, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Entertainment Software Association.
He also worked as an associate legal counsel for the National Republican Congressional Committee.
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) praised Kiko as a “man of unquestioned integrity.”
“His appointment today is further proof of Chairman Gowdy’s commitment to an investigation that is serious, fact-based, and professional. The American people deserve the full truth about what happened in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, and there is no better person to help lead this effort than Phil,” Boehner said.

As the impeachment buzz surrounding the Obama administration has finally becomes mainstream, we look back at all of the offenses our president has committed that have brought him to this point.
They have ranged from criminal negligence to outright unconstitutional tyranny.
Ted Cruz has released a list of 76 of Obama’s “lawless actions,” and we are certain there must be many more where these came from. Such a pattern of disregard for the wishes of the American people and our Constitution simply cannot be stood for, and it seems like Mr. Obama might finally be catching on to that fact.
Darryl Issa has reported that more criminal charges will be coming for the Obama administration, and it looks like President Obama is preparing for them – he has chosen to hire as White House Counsel Neil Eggleston, a renowned criminal defense attorney.
The White House Dossier reports:
Eggleston is the kind of guy you go to when someone tells you, “time to lawyer up.” He’s a veteran at cleaning up ethics messes for politicians, most notably Bill Clinton, whom he aided during the Whitewater probes and the Monica Lewinsky affair, double entendre intended.
But that’s not nearly all. He represented Rahm Emanuel during the scandal surrounding former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, as well as Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) and George W. Bush political director Sara Taylor when scandals touched them, Clinton Cabinet members Federico Pena and Alexis Herman during corruption probes, and various business people involved in “complex criminal investigations” according to the New York Times.
Which begs and pleads the question, is Obama looking for more protection for the White House from the various GOP congressional probes, or is he aware of the possibility that something much, much worse could break?
We are just as curious. What is Obama up to? All we can do is hope that the GOP leaders in charge of these congressional probes will eventually get to the bottom of the mess Obama has made of our federal government. And with enough evidence, even his criminal defense attorney won’t be able to get him out of answering for the crimes he’s committed.
Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter if you’re also curious as to what prompted our President to hire such an attorney.
What do Obamacare and phone sex have in common? Answer: “intimate connections.”
By dialing 1-800-382-5968 — a number that differs from Obamacare’s line by just two digits — you can reach “our nation’s little secret … intimate connections.”
An obliging voice gives you the option to press two to hear the phone number that President Obama read out during his press conference on the woes of healthcare.gov.
Press three, and the phone sex service transfers you to the government line. (Option 1, naturally, asks for your personal preferences and a credit card number to verify your age.)
Click here to hear what it sounds like when you dial 1-800-382-5968 .
Yahoo! Answers has featured multiple questions about the “Obamacre sex hotline” (sic), but the threads have been deleted.
It’s not clear if civic-mindedness alone accounts for the “intimate connections” redirect to the health insurance exchange call center.
“[I]t stands to reason that a legitimate company would only provide option ‘2’ in order to get the caller off the line,” a retired cyber security expert who told the Washington Examiner of the phone line said, given the cost of paying for enrollment phone calls.
An entity that transferred callers to the health insurance marketplace phone line would have the opportunity to execute a “man in the middle attack,” according to the expert, who explained that the identity thief who transfers a caller to a legitimate phone line has the ability to record the phone call and thus capture the private information provided by the caller.
“This is a popular method used by identity thieves because it is virtually impossible to detect while it is happening because the caller reaches the correct destination,” the expert, who asked not to be identified, said.
“Also, individuals who become a victim of identity thief or other phone or email scams will never suspect that the call to Obamacare was the source of their lost identity, thus the squatters rarely get caught.”
The confusion is made possible by the fact that Health and Human Services officials, perhaps because they expected the exchange websites to function properly, didn’t come up with a catchy phone number for Obamacare.
“Intimate Connections” is more brand-conscious, though, so the phone sex number spells exactly that.

Three twenty-something programmer dudes did something in three days that 55 U.S. government contractors couldn’t do in more than 2 years: Build a workable healthcare.gov website.
HealthSherpa lets users quickly shop for health insurance plans by ZIP code, and calculates their federal tax subsidy eligibility. Unlike the federal and state exchange websites, the site does not force users to go through a lengthy sign up and application process to get their information. Instead, users can find what they need by clicking through a few clean, Google-like screens.
Nig Liang said he created the site with his friends George Kalogeropoulos and Michael Wasser, working part time in about three days. Their goal, he said, was to make Obamacare benefits easily understandable to consumers. Beyond hosting fees, the site cost next to nothing to build and maintain.
Unlike everyone else though, Liang said the HealthSherpa team does not wish to disparage the government’s efforts.
“They did the hard part like pulling all the data together and coordinating all the state exchanges,” he explained. “All we did was put a better face on what they’ve already done.”
Liang, who met Kalogeropoulos and Wasser through a community of programmers, also said that the government’s project had a lot of competing aspects, which could explain why the user interface got the short shrift.
He admitted HealthSherpa isn’t perfect either. It doesn’t calculate things like co-pays, maximum out-of-pocket expenses or deductibles. But Liang said those should be added by the end of the week.
The site has its share of minor glitches too, like not returning any info for certain ZIP codes. Liang said the threesome is focusing on fixing the errors.
“Every time someone sends us a comment we correct it as fast as we can,” Liang said. “We’re working around the clock to get things right.”
So far, no one from healthcare.gov has reached out to ask the trio for advice. Liang said. But the site, which went up last week, has already racked up more than 1,500 mostly satisfied customers.

One fourth-grader stood in silence as the rest of the class recited the Pledge at Explorer K-8 school in Spring Hill, FL.
A Jehovah’s Witness forbidden from worshiping objects, the boy’s behavior was not unusual. He had never joined his peers in the ritual of placing his right hand on his heart. He had never spoken the words: “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands . . .”
But that morning was different.
As the students recited, teacher Anne Daigle-McDonald took the boy’s wrist and placed his hand over his heart. He protested, pulling his arm down and reminding her he was a Jehovah’s Witness.
“You are an American, and you are supposed to salute the flag,” Daigle-McDonald said, according to a statement the boy gave to a school administrator.
The teacher did the same thing the next day, and then addressed the class:
“In my classroom, everyone will do the pledge; no religion says that you can’t do the pledge,” several students told a school administrator, according to a report. “If you can’t put your hand on your heart, then you need to move out of the country.”
