As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

DOJ unlikely to prosecute Wilson . . . Justice Department lawyers will recommend that no civil rights charges be brought against the police officer who fatally shot an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Mo., after an F.B.I. investigation found no evidence to support charges, law enforcement officials said Wednesday.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and his civil rights chief, Vanita Gupta, will have the final say on whether the Justice Department will close the case against the officer, Darren Wilson. But it would be unusual for them to overrule the prosecutors on the case, who are still working on a legal memo explaining their recommendation. New York Times

Domino’s to Obama: Calorie rule unworkable . . . The final Obamacare regulation forcing restaurant chains to display calorie information is causing headaches for companies that say it is “impossible to comply” with the new rule. Washington Free Beacon

Government rehires Obamacare website geniuses . . . Seven months after federal officials fired CGI Federal for its botched work on the Obamacare website, the IRS awarded the same company a $4.5 million IT contract for its new Obamacare tax program. Daily Caller

SOTU ratings worst in 15 years . . . Nearly 32 million Americans watched President Barack Obama’s 2015 State of the Union address on television, the lowest turnout since President Bill Clinton’s final State of the Union address in 2000, according to newly released Nielsen ratings. Politico

Obama goal not to eliminate Iran nukes . . . A senior official in the State Department admitted on Wednesday that the Obama administration’s goal during negotiations with Iran is delaying the regime’s development of nuclear weapons rather than shutting down the Islamic Republic’s contested nuclear program. Washington Free Beacon

Obama mum as Yemen strategy implodes . . . With Shiite rebels eroding Yemen’s government, President Obama’s anti-terror strategy — which included using Yemen as a model for action against Islamic terrorists and even opening a terrorist halfway house in the troubled gulf country — is in free fall. But the White House is declining to say whether the administration plans to go ahead with its plans to open a rehabilitation center for Guantanamo Bay detainees in Yemen. Washington Examiner

    • I couldn’t believe it when he got elected but then I remembered how much the DC mentality has affected Northern VA and then throw in the academia nuts (not to be confused with the quite tasty macadamia nut) along with far too many voting on sound bytes vs truth and I sadly understood how it happened.

      I’m also cynical enough to not believe a word of his story about reading “Unbroken”. Until he does a Q & A on the book as to what’s actually in it, it’s just another McAuliffe political tale. Just too convenient that at the very moment the movie getting all the buzz, good ol Terry just happened to have a copy of the book laying around in Africa? The man has always been a consummate liar, just can’t believe this is any different.

  1. Obama rehires Obamacare geniuses for the O/c tax website:
    Well, no question about it! Moochie is spreading the wealth to her college alter ego…and probably getting a large slice of the pie. Everything reeks of nepotism and thuggery with these crooks! Is there any oversight on their dirty dealings?

  2. RE. Iran and Obama and Rev Saed — Obama will use this visit with Ms. Saed against the Republicans — all this bringing Bibi to Congress and advocating for tougher sanctions — will “endanger” these important diplomatic efforts. That will be utter BS. Another Obama offensive –all political.

    • Also the innocent young son asked Obama if he could have his father home for his birthday in March. Obama said he would try very hard and the little boy’s eyes lit up with Hope. Yeah, that Hope thing again — Obama hands that out like “free stuff”.

    • From day one all he’s done on Iran is to kick the can down the road in hopes that his predecessor would have to face the reality that the only way to stop an Iranian nuke is to buck up and back up Israel and take the sites out.
      Iran is not going to negotiate in good faith and it’s not going to capitulate. The nuts over there understand one thing: resolve and under Obama they know the U.S. has none.
      Say what you want about the Iraq war but it was in 2003 that Iran suddenly decided that perhaps pushing a nuclear program with that “cowboy” in the White House wasn’t in its best interests. But thanks to Obama they’ve been happily spinning centrifuges for years now.
