Judicial Watch: Through a number of FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests and lawsuits, Judicial Watch has been very actively trying to get to the truth on many issues impacting our country. One continuing issue has been Obamacare. On October 15, 2014 Judicial Watch released 94 pages of documents obtained from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) revealing that in the days leading up to the rollout of Obamacare, top Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) officials knew of massive security risks with Healthcare.gov and chose to roll out the website without resolving the problems. Detailed information regarding the security flaws, previously withheld from public disclosure, was released to Judicial Watch (JW). Also released to Judicial Watch were “Sensitive Information – Special Handling” memos sent from CMS to Mitre Corporation, the Healthcare.gov security testing company, in which CMS rated “political … damage” and “public embarrassment to CMS” as factors in defining “Risk Rating” priorities. The HHS documents were released as a result of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch on March 18, 2014. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton stated: “... these documents show that this administration was concerned about the political problems of the security flaws but couldn’t care less about the threat to privacy of millions of innocent Americans. Obama's first priority: keep their power! Get his lackeys elected.
Judicial Watch has been working with True the Vote to institute measures to protect election integrity and this summer they had a victory in Indiana. Obama, Holder, and the Justice Department have been bring lawsuits against states which are trying to protect election integrity but a US District Court Judge ruled that Judicial Watch and True the Vote had “standing to challenge Indiana’s alleged violations of their voter list.” On June 4, 2014 a Federal judge approved a Motion to Dismiss the election integrity lawsuit against the State of Indiana. Indiana actions to clean up their roles resulted in moving 700,000 registrations to “inactive” status—17% of Indiana voter registrations were essentially phantom registrations. Our president and attorney general are busy trying to prevent any states from protecting the election integrity within their state. Why would our president and the top legal authority in the US sue states to keep illegal voters on the election roles??? Their propaganda simply states it is racist to require voter ID or to clean up the voter lists but any thinking person knows it's because they want those illegal votes to keep them in office. North Carolina passed a law to improve election integrity and voting after that law proved Obama & Holder were completely wrong. In our amici brief, Judicial Watch and AEF compared the results of a May 4, 2010, primary election with those of a May 14, 2014, primary election, the first major election to be held in North Carolina since the passage of HB 589. And the turnout numbers are “devastating to the Justice Department’s case because they contradict all of their experts’ basis for asserting harm:”The results of this analysis … show that black turnout increased in 2014 by every meaningful measure. Black share of the total electorate increased. The percentage of black registered voters voting increased. Using Census Bureau estimates, Dr. Camarota [the Director of Research for the Center for Immigration Studies] found an increase in turnout among blacks of voting age. Finally, while turnout increased across the board in May 2014, and while white turnout increased by 13.7%, black turnout increased much faster – by an astonishing 29.5%. How will the race baiters contradict this?
Between the Benghazi, IRS, and Fast & Furious scandals, JW has kept up FOIA requests and lawsuits to get to the truth. The Obama administration has refused to hand over documents on these scandals. On July 18, 2014, the US District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the Obama DOJ must turn over a Vaughn index of all requested Operation Fast and Furious (where the Obama administration allowed guns to “walk” into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, ultimately leading to the deaths of US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and hundreds of Mexicans) materials from the 2012 FOIA request and subsequent 2012 lawsuit. It is finally ordered that Obama DOJ provide a detailed listing of all documents that it has withheld from Congress and the American people. Then in August, 2014 Judge Sullivan ordered the IRS to “file a sworn Declaration, by an official with the authority to speak under oath for the Agency. Judge Sullivan ordered the IRS to provide very specific information on the missing IRS emails. Obama & Holder keep delaying until after the November mid-term elections (their usual plan to keep their lackeys in office).
US Border Chaos Leads to Crime Wave: The Obama administration totally allows, and in fact encourages, illegal aliens coming across our border. “Crime is so high along the Mexican border that nearly half of all the criminal cases filed by federal prosecutors in the United States last fiscal year were concentrated in a handful of districts located in that region, according to US government’s figures (23,744 criminal immigration cases were filed by the FEDS). This problem has gotten so out of control that Mexican and American journalists have stopped reporting it out of fear that drug cartels will retaliate against them and their families. Teenage criminals and gang members from Central America have been using Obama’s policies to allow illegal immigrants to come into our country and to stay in this country. “Among the crimes considered non-threatening by the Obama administration: sexual assault, solicitation of murder, aggravated assault, assaulting a police officer, and kidnapping, as well as numerous drug charges.”
“On October 5, JW’s Corruption Chronicles blog posted an important story detailing how a ‘sophisticated narco-terror ring with connections running from El Paso to Chicago to New York City had been uncovered with the help of Judicial Watch.’ The story involves two of the FBI’s Most Wanted, plus a logistics and transportation operative for militant Islamists in the United States and an illegal alien with an extensive criminal record in El Paso, Texas.” Emad Karakrah, and Hector Pedroza Huerta are currently in jail for separate offenses in different states. Karakrah and Huerta met with two of the FBI’s “Most Wanted” terrorists: Jaber A. Elbaneh and Adnan Gulshair el Shukrijumah. Meetings took place in a private home a few years ago in Anthony, NM. The four men discussed the movement of drugs, money and people. The plots were further planned by fellow conspirators at a “mosque” on Redd Road in El Paso, as well as two other “mosques” in the city. Then “on October 8, JW’s Corruption Chronicles blog posted another major story detailing how federal authorities and other officials with the Texas Department of Public Safety in McAllen and Pharr had apprehended four Islamic terrorists crossing the border from Mexico into the U.S. just 36 hours earlier.” Obama continues to say our borders are safe!
Clinton State Department Racket Hauled in $48 Million for Clinton Machine: Bill Clinton gave 215 speeches around the globe while Hillary was Secretary of State—bringing in $48 million for various Clinton family interests. There were more than 200 conflict-of-interest reviews by State Dept. ethics advisers but the Obama administration gave the Clintons an “ethical waiver” 100% of the time.
Obama & Holder Incite Racial Violence in Ferguson as they did with the Trayvon Martin case in Florida. Holder’s first order of business when he became attorney general was to drop the case against the New Black Panther Party, which threatened and intimidated white voters outside a polling station on Election Day 2008. This same Black Panther group is now advocating violence and murder in Ferguson. The Holder Justice Dept. does not know how to enforce the law in a racially-neutral manner.
Nearly half of federal agency rulings dismissing employee discrimination claims have been overturned under President Obama, costing American taxpayers tens of billions of dollars in settlements to keep with the administration’s mission of operating a politically correct government. In one year alone this translated into an astounding $51.4 billion. JW Corruption Chronicles.
This next one is really hard to believe and certainly lends credibility to the belief by many that Obama wants to destroy America: President Obama’s own Homeland Security Secretary has snubbed him by refusing to go along with his outrageous plan to lift a decades-old ban on Libyans attending flight schools and training as nuclear scientists in the United States.As unbelievable as it may seem, the commander-in-chief and his State Department schemed to lift the prohibition despite strong congressional opposition. WOW! That man belongs in jail.
