HHS Spreads Sequester Scaremongering in Letter to Governors

"[T]he Education Department for days was unable to cough up the name of a single school district where these notices had been delivered … [T]here is no reason to hype the statistics — or to make scary pronouncements on pink slips being issued based on misinformation. Indeed, Duncan’s lack of seriousness about being scrupulously factual undercuts the administration’s claim that the cuts are a serious problem." Apr 1, 2013 4:46 PM PT

The USDA Tapes: Big Brother Is Here

At one point, the Betances asks his audience to join him in rewriting history. “I want you to say that American was founded by outsiders – say that,” he shouts, “who are today’s insiders, who are very nervous about today’s outsiders. I want you to say, ‘The pilgrims were illegal aliens.’ Say, ‘The pilgrims never gave their passports to the Indians.’” Apr 1, 2013 4:42 PM PT

Two New Lawsuits against Obama Administration over Benghazi Secrecy

Six months have passed since the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, which killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, and we are no closer to the truth about what happened. And there is only one reason: Obama secrecy. Mar 13, 2013 9:24 AM PT

Office of the Director of National Intelligence Sued for Benghazi Documents

Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit on February 14, 2013, against the Obama Administration’s Office of the Director of National Intelligence seeking records that could shed light on what Obama administration officials knew about the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi and when they knew it.

WH Claims Bin Laden Burial Details Would Lead to 'Retaliatory Attacks'

So first, we were told that we could not see videos or photos of the burial, and now we are told we can’t see written information about the burial. This attempt to rewrite FOIA law to include a “let’s not offend the terrorists” exemption is another example of the Obama administration’s thinking it is the law unto itself. Jan 28, 2013 2:10 PM PT

Senate Must Ask Brennan About Bin Laden Film Leaks

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is threatening a hold on the nomination of Obama Chief Counterterrorism Advisor John Brennan to serve as CIA Director until the administration comes clean on Benghazi. Yet there is another reason that Brennan’s confirmation must not be rubber-stamped. According to documents uncovered by Judicial Watch, Brennan met with the filmmakers behind Zero Dark Thirty to discuss the Osama bin Laden raid. Jan 11, 2013 10:43 AM PT

Exclusive - 'Corruption Chronicles': WH Alternatively Leaks, Hides OBL Raid Secrets

President Obama’s reelection campaign trumpeted the killing of Osama bin Laden. In the hopes that a planned movie on the raid would provide a “boost” to his campaign, the Obama administration provided secret and inappropriate access to information about the raid to the creators of the new film, "Zero Dark Thirty".

Obama Administration Sued for Records about Bankrupt MF Global Holdings Ltd.

The American people deserve to know the truth about what FSOC officials knew about the epic failure of MF Global and when they knew it. But once again, the Obama administration refuses to provide basic information related to its supposed “oversight” of the private sector. I suspect it is because that this “oversight” is more about politics than about the public interest. Aug 13, 2012 10:14 AM PT

Court Rules DOJ Politicized Black Panther Case

Imagine if a conservative political appointee at DOJ had just been cited in a federal court decision as having apparently testified falsely under oath. Not only would it be a top headline at The New York Times and The Washington Post, but the IG and OPR would be rushing to investigate. All of which is a sad commentary on the liberal bias not just of the media, but of too many of the offices and officials within the Justice Department who are supposed to administer justice in an objective, non-political, and impartial manner.
