Foundation says Obama is just getting started!

Personal Liberty ^ | 5/11/2015 | Sam Rolley 

(Obama's not going away. Like Carter and the Clintons he'll be around to complete his convoluted chaos.)

President Barack Obama recently vowed that his “project” will continue long after he leaves the White House. In a new email to supporters, the Obama Foundation has reiterated that the president is going to remain very politically active after 2016 with the declaration “eight years is only the beginning.”
“Eight years is only the beginning. Barack Obama’s commitment to public service preceded his presidency, and will continue long after he and the first lady leave the White House. The foundation will carry forward the Obamas’ efforts to inspire active citizenship, expand economic opportunity, and promote peace and justice throughout the world,” said the email.
The foundation is currently finalizing plans for the Obama Foundation headquarters and his presidential library, which are expected to be located in Chicago.
“Our first priority is laying the groundwork for the Barack Obama Library and Museum. This year, we’ll choose a host and construction site, and start to gather the artifacts that recall a historic presidency,” the foundation website says.
Philanthropic foundations are not uncommon for former president. But Obama’s could prove remarkable if it enjoys the same fundraising and online savvy as the president’s two campaigns. It’s worth noting that the foundation’s volunteer board is headed up by Martin Nesbitt, national treasurer to both Obama campaigns.

A classy Ted Cruz vs. charlatan reporter (Excellent perspective)

...What first struck me about the interview was not so much the objectively asinine questions Halperin asked but his obvious motive and attitude in asking them. Aside from a few throwaways, all of his questions were aimed at exposing Cruz as an inauthentic Hispanic. And as insulting as that is, there is something more noteworthy about it that some are missing in all the hubbub about the interview.
Halperin’s unstated premise underlying his questions is that one cannot have a bona fide Hispanic heritage if he doesn’t continue to bathe himself in the Hispanic culture and view American politics from a Hispanic prism. If you are ethnically Hispanic but have assimilated into American culture and embrace the American idea of government, you ought not be entitled to lay claim to your ethnicity or to receive support from the Hispanic community. Halperin and his liberal friends apply the same standards to assess African-American candidacies.
Cruz showed extraordinary class and restraint in fielding these boorish questions, but what was even more gratifying to me was that in his answers, he implicitly, though emphatically, rejected Halperin’s assumptions, making clear that though he is proud of his ethnicity and considers his Cuban-American father his hero, he is a full-blooded American, proud of the Constitution and the liberties it protects.
At every turn, Halperin was trying to discredit Cruz as a Hispanic by trying to trap him into revealing...

Editorial: Ted Cruz not running for president of Cuba!

The Dallas Morning News ^ | May 11, 2015 | The Editors 

You don’t have to like Sen. Ted Cruz, or even agree with him, to find offense in a recent line of questioning he endured.
More than awkwardness, Mark Halperin offered a stunning small-mindedness as he attempted to tease out Cruz’s Hispanic bona fides: What Cuban food did he like growing up? Which Cuban music does he favor today? Would he welcome fellow Sen. Bernie Sanders to the presidential race, “and I’d like you to do it, if you would, en español”?
Halperin, famed for co-authoring the book Game Change on the 2012 presidential campaign and prominent today for his analysis on MSNBC, spoke to Cruz for a Bloomberg Politics online interview series on presidential candidates. As you may have heard, Cruz, Texas’ junior senator, is running for president — of a country that should be above such inappropriate behavior from a journalist.
Cruz has been clear about his Cuban heritage, even as he has spent roughly zero time pushing himself as the “Hispanic candidate.” For the record, Cruz’s father left Cuba in 1957 to attend the University of Texas....

Wall Street Analyst: 'Shut down Clinton Foundation'

WND ^ | May 11, 2015 | Jerome Corsi 

NEW YORK – A prominent lawyer and a top government watchdog in the nation’s capital are calling for the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation to be shut down as a Wall Street analyst prepares to issue a second report documenting what he believes is systematic financial fraud warranting a criminal investigation.
Wall Street analyst and investor Charles Ortel, in his first report of his in-depth probe of the Clinton Foundation, found what he characterizes as an elaborate system devised by the Clintons to enrich themselves through schemes such as skimming tens of millions of dollars from U.N. levies imposed on airline travelers.
His second report, some 300 pages of analysis set for release Monday on his website, documents what he calls material irregularities, errors and omissions in financial regulatory reporting since the foundation’s inception.
Ortel believes that once his findings have been studied, state and local law enforcement authorities will initiate multiple criminal investigations and charge the Clintons with “private inurement,” the crime of enriching themselves through a nonprofit organization.
He explained that the burden of proof, under state and federal laws, will be on the Clintons to demonstrate that their foundation was not operated as a systematic fraud designed to enrich themselves and their associates.

Congress Committed 'Fraud' to Avoid ACA Requirement

News Max ^ | 5/11/2015 | Sean Piccoli 

Congress engaged in outright fraud to escape a requirement that everyone on Capitol Hill buy individual health insurance through the Affordable Care Act, and the White House played along, says a government watchdog who calls the congressional Obamacare dodge an under-reported scandal.
The Obama administration let Congress, which employs thousands of people, classify itself as a small business so that lawmakers and hill employees could keep heavily subsidized, federally funded coverage that would not have been available to them as individuals, Phil Kerpen, president of American Commitment, told "MidPoint" host Ed Berliner on Newsmax TV on Monday.
"This is quite literal fraud," said Kerpen. "These are documents, formal documents, that were filed with the D.C. health exchange — the Obamacare exchange in the District of Columba — certifying that the House of Representatives only has 45 employees and the United States Senate also only has 45 employees.
"These are signed under penalty of perjury, and since they were signed, 13,700 people have signed up for [coverage in] the supposed 'small businesses' with 90 total employees," he said. "So, this is pretty blatant fraud here on the part of Congress."
Congress so far has shown little appetite to investigate itself.
