Wisconsin Reporter Was Sent to Cover Michelle Obama’s Speech and What She Says an Aide Told Her Had Her ‘Creeped Out’

stuff-that-irks-me:

“[A]ssigned to cover Michelle Obama’s speech today and was told by a Mary Burke aide and one for the White House that I could not speak to the people in the crowd,” she said on her Facebook page. “To say that I was creeped out is an understatement. This is what reporters do in America: we speak to people. At least that’s how I’ve been doing things — at all kinds of political events — since 1979.”

Doug Ross @ Journal: ACORN PART DEUX: Obamacare Navigator With History of "Breathtaking" Fraud Gets Millions From You

The federal government is giving an Obamacare insurance navigator Seedco, which has a reported history of fraud, $1.4 million to operate in Tennessee this fiscal year

Last year, Seedco received $1.2 million for the same services in Tennessee.

As reported, the federal government sued Seedco on the grounds it faked at least 1,400 of 6,500 job placements under a $22.2 million federally funded contract with New York City.

Seedco, according to National Review, had to settle that lawsuit.

Meanwhile, state Comptroller Justin Wilson reported last year certain Memphis residents participating in the Temporary Assistance For Needy Families program falsified paperwork and wrongly received almost $30,000 in taxpayer money through a Seedco subcontractor.

Liberal city council fumes as concealed carry finally comes to Washington DC

The anti-gun left is going nuts today after the DC City Council finally voted to begin issuing concealed carry permits for residents of Washington DC. The liberal members of the DC city council are fuming that that pesky old Constitution won’t let them prevent residents from arming themselves. 

from Washington Post:

The D.C. Council voted Tuesday to grant residents and visitors the ability to carry concealed firearms in public, but the bill would establish a regulatory structure that could make it difficult for gun owners to secure a permit.

The legislation passed unanimously, although several of the council’s 13 members said they were voting for the measure reluctantly after a federal judge struck down the city’s long-standing ban on carrying weapons.

Council member Mary M. Cheh (D-Ward 3) said before the vote that she was “deeply disappointed” by the demise of the city’s decades-old ban on carrying guns and said the court ruling, in her view, did “grievous harm to public safety” in the nation’s capital.

But Cheh joined her colleagues in voting for the bill, knowing that the July court order would otherwise invalidate much of the city’s gun-control statute and that prosecutors have already ceased pursuing unlicensed-carrying charges.

“We really don’t want to move forward with allowing more guns in the District of Columbia, but we all know we have to be compliant with what the courts say,” said Muriel Bowser (Ward 4), the Democratic nominee for mayor.

Cheer up, DC liberals. Your city’s crime rate will go down (like it has in every state that has adopted concealed carry).  

An armed society is a polite one.  It’s always nice when there’s a Constitutional victory to celebrate.

Don’t they understand that by talking about how “scary” life is as an adult woman, how everything is going to be in your way, and how no one will believe in you because you are a woman without offering any real solutions to those real or imaginary problems only teaches little girls?  Don’t they get that blaming men for all of women’s problems while simultaneously stating that men should but will never fix these problems is what makes little girls afraid to try anything? That it reenforces the gender roles they claim they are against?  I think they do.  They need women to be afraid and to believe that they are the one and only solution.

Rather than focusing on what people say they want, look at what their actions and words are actually accomplishing.
