THE THIRD WORLD KNOW OBAMAS GOVERNMENT IS A FRAUD NO CHANGE FROM BUSH America Spies on its Closest Allies: NSA Accessed Mexican President’s Email
"Tailored Access Operations" (TAO) Devises Special Methods for Special Targets.The National Security Agency (NSA) has a division for particularly difficult missions. Called “Tailored Access Operations”(TAO), this department devises special methods for special targets.
That category includes surveillance of neighboring Mexico, and in May 2010, the division reported its mission accomplished. A report classified as “top secret” said:“TAO successfully exploited a key mail server in the Mexican Presidencia domain within the Mexican Presidential network to gain first-ever access to President Felipe Calderon’s public email account.”According to the NSA, this email domain was also used by cabinet members, and contained “diplomatic, economic and leadership communications which continue to provide insight into Mexico’s political system and internal stability.” The president’s office, the NSA reported, was now “a lucrative source.”

This operation, dubbed “Flatliquid,” is described in a document leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden, which SPIEGEL has now had the opportunity to analyze. The case is likely to cause further strain on relations between Mexico and the United States, which have been tense since Brazilian television network TV Globo revealed in September that the NSA monitored then-presidential candidate Enrique Peña Nieto and others around him in the summer of 2012. Peña Nieto, now Mexico’s president, summoned the US ambassador in the wake of that news, but confined his reaction to demanding an investigation into the matter.

Bloomberg Businessweek: KBR Inc.[aka Halliburton] was selected for a no-bid contract worth as much as $568 million through 2011 for military support services in Iraq, the Army said.The Army announced its decision yesterday only hours after the Justice Department said it will pursue a lawsuit accusing the Houston-based company of taking kickbacks from two subcontractors on Iraq-related work. The Army also awarded the work to KBR over objections from members of Congress, who have pushed the Pentagon to seek bids for further logistics contracts.
Halliburton is the only company that can get the job done moron...er eh Sonic. lololololololol
You call it success when one of Halliburton's KBR subsidiary electrocutes soldiers?

Yet have a freaking fit about a few glitches in the ACA program.

ONLY OBAMAS CHERRY PICKERS SAYS Different America’s Economic Dark Side. Widening Social Inequality, Rising Poverty and Joblessness
Former Clinton administration Labor Secretary Robert Reich explained, saying:

“Of all developed nations, the United States has the most unequal distribution of income, and we’re surging towards every greater inequality.”

America’s 400 richest elites have more wealth than half the population. Jacob Kornbluth’s new documentary film “Inequality for All” examines disturbing truths.

US inequality is at historic highs. Since 1970, America’s economy doubled. The top 1% benefited hugely. They earn more than 20% of national income. It’s triple their 1970 percentage.

The gap between rich and all others keeps widening. Inequality hurts everyone, says Reich. Since economic recovery began in 2009, America’s top 1% got 95% of the gains.

Adjusted for inflation, median household income keeps declining. Where will most people “get the money they need to keep the economy going,” asked Reich?

“We’re the richest economy in the history of the world. For the majority of Americans not to get the benefits of this extraordinarily prosperous economy, you know, there’s something fundamentally wrong.”

America has less upward mobility than any other developed country. If you’re poor, you’ll stay that way.

If you’re lower middle class,“the cards are going to be stacked against you. You will probably never get anywhere,” says Reich.

“Who is actually looking out for the American worker? The answer is nobody.”

The nation is headed toward becoming a “100 percent plutocracy.” Inequality this extreme fuels public anger. It hurts economic growth. Force-fed austerity assures worse ahead.

Reich teaches a popular Wealth and Poverty course at UC Berkeley. His book “Beyond Outrage” explains what’s wrong with America’s economy.

It doesn’t work. It benefits the privileged few. It harms most others. Doing so undermines America. Expect worse ahead unless people react, he says.

He’s never been more concerned about things than now. He cites “the corrupting effects of big money in politics,” regressive hard right policies, and unprecedented “wealth and power at the very top.”

Things are “perilously close” to falling apart altogether. People are right to be outraged. It’s a “prerequisite for social change.” It’s vital to “move beyond outrage and take action.”

What a mess. If Obama and his robots can't even get a frikking website to work how the hell are they going to make this 2000 page monstrosity of a bill called (Un) Affordable Health Care work?
It's the Titanic. The blow hard Democrats messed up big time. This website fiasco is just the tip of the Iceberg.
Information Technology experts, outside and inside the government, have figured out the reason why the website for Obamakare's federally-sponsored insurance exchange is crashing.

Healthcare.gov forces you to create an account, a self-incrimination surveillance program requiring detailed personal information selling yourself out before you can shop for obamakare.

This, in turn, creates a massive traffic bottleneck, as the government gathers, a surveillance program that verifies your personal information and decides whether or not you're eligible for subsidies or handouts before you shop.

HHS bureaucrats knew this would make the website run slowly, and are more afraid letting people see first the underlying cost of Obamakare's insurance plans would scare people away.

If not for obamakare, the Tea Party would not have been a great success..

It's the culture....

Well, this administration not only spies on journalists and invades its own citizens' privacy but they've now decided to make enemies out of our allies. The NSA has been caught confiscating over 70 million French phone records. Similarly, in Britain and Germany. An angered Brazilian president cancelled a state visit to Washington and denounced the U.S. for "violation of human rights and of civil liberties."

http://news.msn.com/world/nsa-took-703m-frenc...

That's our present administration...power hungry, above the law, no clue, making enemies here and abroad, and the liberal media helping them get away with it.

Here's the headline:

"As Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Paris, the French government summoned the U.S. ambassador to explain extensive spying on a close ally."

...Might as well tell the French government good luck with that. This administration explains nothing to no one. Americans know that firsthand.
