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

The Obama Morning News || March 5, 2015

Using private emails, Clinton thwarted record requests . . . In 2012, congressional investigators asked the State Department for a wide range of documents related to the attack on the United States diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. The department eventually responded, furnishing House committees with thousands of documents. But it turns out that that was not everything. New York Times

Clinton ran her own computer system . . . The computer server that transmitted and received Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails — on a private account she used exclusively for official business when she was secretary of state — traced back to an Internet service registered to her family’s home in Chappaqua, New York, according to Internet records reviewed by The Associated Press.

Missing emails raise Benghazi questions . . . Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), the chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, said the development will likely require Clinton to make several appearances before the panel, possibly stretching the investigation into 2016. The Hill

Not technically illegal . . . “What she did was not technically illegal,” said Patrice McDermott, a former National Archives staffer and the head of the Open The Government coalition, a transparency group. However, “it was highly inappropriate and it was inappropriate for the State Department to let this happen,” she said. The Hill

Dems circle the wagons . . . Democrats scrambled on Tuesday to contain the fallout for Hillary Clinton, their favored 2016 presidential candidate, after allegations she inappropriately used her personal email for work while secretary of state. Reuters

Obama may raise taxes by fiat . . . The White House may be inching closer to the idea of raising taxes by executive action – the same path President Obama took to push through his controversial immigration actions. Fox News

DOJ legalized 100K before order blocked it . . . President Obama’s expanded executive amnesty started earlier than the administration said it would — and before a court blocked it. CNS News

IRS wants another $490 million to enforce Obamacare . . . “This additional funding, the majority of which is for required information technology upgrades, will allow the IRS to increase efforts to ensure compliance with a number of tax-related provisions of the ACA, including the premium tax credit and individual shared responsibility provision,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said. The Blaze

  1. As long as Boehner and McConnell are “running the show,” Obama will get anything he wants.

    Boehner is NOT speaking for the People of this Country, and the representatives that are are met with opposition.

    It’s just another indication of the liars and charlatans that control this Country.

  2. Manufactured Controversy was the response from the spokeswoman for Correct the Record, a pro-Clinton Group.
    They always come up with childish excuses.

  3. Ho hum, so MrsClinton had secret e-mails, so what. Nothing will come of it, even if there is a ‘smoking RPG’ on it.
    The Repubs will be shocked, dismayed, maybe even call her before a committe and then….nothing.
    The IRS acted in a partisan political manner, the DOJ feels compelled to protect Black criminals from ‘racist’ police, millions of illegals are storming our borders and…yawn.

  4. Follow the money……who paid for Hillary’s private main frame locked away in her Chapaqua and Georgetown homes. I can promise Hillary did not pay. Her name is Crime and Crime does not pay…….

    If the U.S. government paid for it as an expense of her being SOS then it belongs to the US Government. I don’t see how she will be able to block a subpoena.

    Does anyone remember VP Cheney meeting with energy companies in private to form a national energy policy? They acted like he was creating a separate government. That was chump change compared to Obama and Clinton have and continue to do……..

    You know every liberal pundit tonight will say…….the law didn’t state she couldn’t do this…..

    Now……Barack Obama is going to raise taxes by fiat……when will he declare the Constitution Void and declare himself emperor?

    I find it interesting it is supposed to be in NY and not DC.

    • Obama is not the problem, congress is.
      He is going to push his agenda through no matter what, and congress’s job is to stop him from doing it.

      We elected the current congress to do just that and now they are showing us that our efforts were in vain.

      • I disagree. It is like saying the person who shoots another blaming the police for not telling to stop. There is zero integrity in this administration.

        I will bet money no independent counsel will happen regarding Hillary.

    • The issue of raising T though Executive order is not being mentioned much at all. Anyone want to guess the number of people who have not even heard about that yet?
      Congress: They are afraid of something. I have decided what they fear more. We have discussed several different reasons.

    • I find it curious that the person listed as administrator of her server, Eric Hoteman, obviously used an alias since there is no public record anywhere of that name, so it was an intentional deception.

      Now it’s reported that Hillary’s bff Huma Abedin also used the Clinton email server. How many other aides used it?

      Hillary and staff using that server in her NY home was a deliberate plan to circumvent the law. When it was hacked national security was at risk. This is not a person I want as president.

  5. If the states ever convene a constitutional convention, term limits should be first on the list IMO.

    Also, eliminate lifetime tenure for the Supreme court justices.

    Those two things alone would turn this Country around very quickly.

  6. Am I the only one thinking that the two recent Shrillary stories – the foreign donations to the Clinton foundation and now this secret email scandal – have been deliberately put out there now to get them out of the way? We’ll hear about it for a little while, Shrillary will get away with it as usual, and it will all slowly fade away.

    Then, next year when it comes up during the presidential race, all we’ll hear is the usual blather about it being old news, already covered, now let’s move on and discuss the issues that Americans want to tackle like the economy, jobs, foreign policy, national security, etc.

    • That point was made this morning on Fox. Get it out of the way. Everything else gets put on a back burner. An example of a response from them I made a little while ago: Manufactured controversy. I am so tired of their BS. A child who did something wrong, would not dare tell their parents, I am not at fault, I feel it is a manufactured controversy.

    • It’s hard to say if Hillary’s “people” are getting this corruption out now, rather than later. The way I’m reading it now is that some group or person, deep, deep inside the Democrat machine (the Warren people?) wants to hang her on a yard arm to get rid of her. Not sure why just yet. They might have figured out she awn’t win the general election. The fact the MSM is running so hard with these Hillary stories (as opposed to simply minimizing them, as they might ordinarily do) says to me that Obama and his gang might be playing a role in this. Weird stuff. Interesting to watch, though.

  7. McConnell just said that the senate was just a few votes shy of overriding Obama’s veto of the Keystone Pipeline,….so Barry won again.

    • I may have a bit premature on the senate vote on the Keystone Pipeline.
      Fox news radio just reported that the senate is to vote on it in about an hour.
      The bill passed 62 in favor of building it prior to Obama’s veto.

      We shall see if they stand up to Obama this time.
