Rep. Marsha Blackburn Lays Out Biggest Coming Scandal Of 2015: Obamacare Data Mining

rep marsha blackburn

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) laid out in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News at the Iowa Freedom Summit the biggest coming scandal of 2015: That the Obama administration is allowing corporations to data mine from

“We finally have confirmation—I had anecdotal evidence on that when started up,” Blackburn said. “They denied, denied, denied. Now we have confirmation that yes, indeed, that what has done is allowed data mining. What we’re trying to find out now—and we’re investigating—did they make money? Did they sell your data? Who got the money? What pool did that money go to? Did that come back into taxpayer funds? Or, have companies been given free access?”

Blackburn, the vice chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said congressional hearings are in the works right now, too. “Absolutely, you’re going to see hearings on this,” she said, “because the federal government first and foremost has to protect your data.”

“Jindal: ‘That’s Not Immigration…That’s Colonization’”

Dayum. He hits the nail right on the head. We noted the other day what Wild Bill had to say about Muslims colonizing western countries. He noted how they do it.

When they are less than 2% of the population they are friendly and kind. When they reach 4-6% they begin demanding special rights. At 8-10% they become aggressive toward Jews and Christians. When they are 20% of the population war comes to your town.”

bobby jindal

On the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” broadcast Tuesday, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal addressed the issue of radical Islam in America, particularly in immigrant communities that refuse to assimilate to American culture.

Jindal’s comments came in response to host Tony Perkins’ questions about Jindal’s recent remarks on “so-called ‘no-go’ zones” and the threat of radical Islam in the West, which earned him criticism from the left. Jindal told Perkins that immigrants intending to come to America to “change our fundamental culture and our values” was “not immigration” but, rather, “colonization” and would likely lead to “lone wolf” attacks as has just occurred in Paris:

Jindal: One of the great things about America is it doesn’t matter if you were here in the first five minutes or a hundred years. We have folks who come here, want to be Americans, they join our military, they start companies, they work to create a better community. And that’s wonderful.

But what’s not acceptable is people that want to come and conquer us. That’s not immigration, by the way, that’s colonization. If someone wants to come here and change our fundamental culture and our values. If they want to come here and they want to set up their own culture and values that’s not immigration, that’s really invasion if you’re honest about it. Of course, the politically correct crowd when you say things like they’ll call you racist but this is a particular threat we face. And if we’re not serious about this we’re going to see more lone wolf actors. We’re gonna see more folks come into our country just like you’ve seen in other countries — the horrific shootings in Paris.”

Raul Castro

Cuba’s President Raúl Castro has demanded that the United States return the US base at Guantánamo Bay, lift the half-century trade embargo on Cuba and compensate his country for damages before the two nations re-establish normal relations.

Castro told a summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States that Cuba and the US are working toward full diplomatic relations but “if these problems aren’t resolved, this diplomatic rapprochement wouldn’t make any sense”.

Military Pay And Benefits Panel To Recommend Killing 20-Year Retirement

Funny thing about the image below of the men who are making this change. Not one of them is wearing a uniform. That indicates that they are all civilians.

They want to do away with the twenty year retirement option. That will make it even less attractive to join up. Military people work long hours, get mediocre pay and their benefits are being constantly cut, many serve in really hazardous duty, and now there’s this… another progressive attack on our military.

From the Stars and Stripes:

Members of the Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission

Members of the Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission

The Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission will release its long-awaited report Thursday, which will propose fundamental changes to military benefits including ending the 20-year retirement, according to the Military Times, citing sources familiar with the report.

The plan calls for Congress to create a hybrid system of smaller defined-benefit pension along with more cash-based benefits and lump-sum payments. A significant portion of retirement benefits would come in the form of government contributions to 401(k)-style investment accounts, those familiar with the report told Military Times.

In addition to the 401(k) for troops serving less than 20 years, the commission will suggest promising a pension to troops who serve a long-term career, but one that would be more modest than what military retirees receive today, a defense official briefed on the plan told the Times.”

“Panicked super rich buying boltholes with private airstrips to escape if poor rise up”

These people who are meeting in Davos, Switzerland, are the same group that has proposed herding all the little people in the world into cities where they can be controlled and where they don’t need cars. We reported on this meeting a week or so ago. They want someone to pony up $60 Trillion for the scheme.

It’s no wonder they are worried about ‘The little people’.

Obama Sends Campaign Team To Israel To Defeat Netanyahu

Foreign Funding Bankrolls Anti-Netanyahu Campaign – Flies in 5-Man Obama Team
Dr. Aaron Lerner Date: 26 January 2015

Haaretz reporter Roi Arad revealed in an article in the Hebrew edition today that the foreign funded organization, “One Voice”, is bankrolling the V-2015 campaign to defeat Binyamin Netanyahu’s national camp in the March 2015 Knesset Elections.

One indication of the generous financing is that it has now flown in a team of five American campaign experts (including Jeremy Bird, the Obama campaign’s national field director) who will run the campaign out of offices taking up the ground floor of a Tel Aviv office building.

V-2015 is careful not to support a specific party – rather “just not Bibi”. As such, the foreign funds pouring into the campaign are not subject to Israel’s campaign finance laws.”

Hillary Agrees To Testify Before Benghazi Panel

I wonder what is behind this. It’s not what one would expect from someone who wants to be President. When she goes before the House committee, if that’s what it is, she will be faced with questions from people like Trey Gowdy. He will not make her look good.

Seems like a ‘Hail Mary’ tactic perhaps. Not much chance of success but if it does succeed it will be a game changer.


Former Secretary of State and likely 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has agreed to testify before the House Select Committee on the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi.

Reportedly, she was first contacted in that regard by the committee’s ranking Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings.

According to reports, neither Clinton nor a spokesperson on her behalf has commented on her pending appearance.”

“SWATter Responsible For Raid That Left Police Chief Shot Is Arrested in Oklahoma”

We reported on this a few days ago. Someone phoned in a bomb threat in Oklahoma, and gave the name of someone else. That resulted in a no-knock raid on that person’s home. The homeowner, attempting to protect his family, shot one of the intruders. That intruder turned out to be the Chief of police. No charges were filed against the homeowner.

Now they have arrested the man who made the fake call.

James Holly

James Holly

An arrest affidavit is giving more insight into a bomb threat at an Oklahoma school.

On Jan. 15, Washita County dispatch received a 911 call from a man who identified himself as Dallas Horton.

According to the affidavit, that man told dispatchers that he placed a bomb in the refrigerator of the Sentinel Head Start and that the bomb was set to go off at 8 a.m.

At that point, officers forced their way into Horton’s home.

Once inside, Sentinel Police Chief Louis Ross was shot several times by Horton, who was taken into custody for questioning.

After being questioned by OSBI agents, authorities learned Horton didn’t make the bomb threat.

On Jan. 20, officers questioned James Holly about his alleged involvement in the bomb threat.

“Holly confessed that he used Horton’s name and called in the bomb threats to 911 because he was angry with Horton,” the affidavit claims. “Holly told OSBI agents that he used two separate non functioning phones so that the phones could not be traced back to him.”

So far Holly is only charged with making a bomb threat. He should be charged with attempted murder.

After an intense investigation, James Edward Holly was arrested Tuesday and booked into the Washita County Jail on a complaint of making a bomb threat.

The district attorney will determine if Holly will face any other charges.”

“Thorner/Ingold: Too Much Internet Time May Disqualify Gun Ownership”

Moonbats will try anything. Here is another try. The American Psychiatric Association and the Obama administration are throwing this against the wall to see if it will stick.


The Obama administration has a new partner in crime, and it is the American Psychiatric Association (APA). This is consistent with Obama’s perversion of science to promote his social goals. The most notable example is Climate Change. It would seem that men in white coats are more threatening to our liberty than black helicopters (or drones).

The APA created a new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (5th Edition) — published in 2013 — which was recently adopted. DSM-5 is highly controversial and has sparked outrage from the mental health practitioners. Many practitioners point out that the new DSM-5 also makes a pathology out of simple and normal behaviors such as grieving for the loss of a loved one, as the bereavement exclusion was removed in this new version of the manual.”

But what about the internet?

The new DSM-5 has expanded the definition of ODD to include adults who exemplify “paranoid ideation” about the government and frequently express these delusional ideations on the internet. This Oppositional Defiant Disorder as redefined in DSM-5 is now destined to become the newest weapon against political dissent.

As such, the 5th Edition of the APA’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual represents a new subjective approach in diagnosing of mental illness in that it promises to end free speech and any form of political dissent. The federal government has already declared anyone who opposes its unconstitutional policies as having “political paranoia,” which is now diagnosed as a type of mental illness. “

This is standard procedure for leftist tyrants. History has shown us that they inevitably label any dissenter as insane and lock them up.

Psychiatric manual DSM-5 targets certain internet users as mentally ill and grounds for gun confiscation. By some vague set of criteria, if someone is judged to spend too much time on the internet they could be judged to be mentally ill and ineligible to own a gun, which amounts to just another backdoor method to disarm citizens who would oppose tyranny being imposed upon America.”

“Bergdahl To Be Charged With Desertion”

trading private bergdahl

On Monday’s broadcast of “The O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel, retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer of the London Center for Policy Research revealed to host Bill O’Reilly that sources tell him U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will face charges for desertion.

Bergdahl was held captive by the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network in Afghanistan from June 2009 until his release in May 2014, which was part of a prisoner exchange for five Taliban members who were being held at the detention center at Guantanamo Bay.

“Bill, the Army has come to its conclusion and Bowe Bergdahl,” Shaffer said, “Sgt. Bergdahl will be charged with desertion. I have been told and confirmed by two other sources that his attorney was given what we call a charge sheet.”

“The biggest corporate lay-off in history is expected within days”

Robert Cringley, from Forbes, said: ‘To fix its business problems and speed up its “transformation,” next week about 26 per cent of IBM’s employees will be getting phone calls from their managers.

‘Project Chrome will hit many of the worldwide services operations. The USA will be hit hard, but so will other locations.’

An IBM spokesman said: ‘IBM does not comment on rumours, even ridiculous or baseless ones.

‘IBM has already announced the company has just taken a $600million [£400million] charge for workforce rebalancing. This equates to several thousand people, a mere fraction of what’s been reported.’”

Politico: “The Kochs put a price on 2016: $889 million”

David Koch

David Koch

The Koch brothers’ operation intends to spend $889 million in the run-up to the 2016 elections — a historic sum that in many ways would mark Charles and David Koch and their fellow conservative megadonors as more powerful than the official Republican Party.

The figure, which more than doubles the amount spent by the Republican National Committee during the last presidential election cycle, prompted cheers from some in the GOP who are looking for all the help they can get headed into a potentially tough 2016 election landscape.”

So they are willing to spend their money and are actively organizing other wealthy Conservative donors. Who will they support? Politico thinks it will be those on the right.

During a Saturday night welcome speech in Rancho Mirage, Charles Koch took a modest victory lap — calling the midterms “an important step in slowing down the march toward collectivism” — but he implored the assembled donors to dig deep heading into 2016.

Espousing a political worldview that protects free speech and “individual and property rights with equal protection for everyone under the law,” Koch said: “It is up to us. Making this vision a reality will require more than a financial commitment. It requires making it a central part of our lives.”

The willingness of major donors to heed the fundraising solicitations of the Kochs and their operatives makes the network a potentially major player in the 2016 GOP presidential sweepstakes. The Rancho Mirage meeting drew appearances from leading prospective candidates, including Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Marco Rubio of Florida, and Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin.”

Another Armed Robber Shoots Himself In The Leg – This time With A Shotgun

Robbery is not the act of a smart person. This one was robbing shops in his own neighborhood.


STOCKTON, Calif. (KCRA) —A 21-year-old suspected of using a shotgun to order victims to the ground in one of three robberies Wednesday night accidentally shot himself in the leg during his final heist, police said Thursday.
After injuring himself with the gun, Donnello Knowles ran to a friend’s apartment across the street from a gas station he robbed at gunpoint, according to the Stockton Police Department.

Knowles’ friend called for help, prompting officers to respond to the 8100 block of Palisades Drive, police said. The events took place Wednesday night, officers said.

When investigators showed up to the apartments, they determined Knowles matched the suspect description from three recent robberies — of a nail salon, a Subway restaurant and a Valero gas station.

Knowles was suffering from a gunshot wound to his leg when officers saw him near the front of the complex. He also had money from the robbery in his clothes, police said.”

“Cuba leaves talks on US ties insisting it won’t make major changes to its system”

The Obama administration still thinks talking with dictators will work. They have learned nothing from their failures.

The dictators, however, have learned a lot from successes in negotiating with Obama. They can get whatever they want.

US Restores Diplomatic Relations With Cuba

HAVANA – The start of talks on repairing 50 years of broken relations appears to have left President Raul Castro’s government focused on winning additional concessions without giving in to U.S. demands for greater freedoms, despite the seeming benefits that warmer ties could have for the country’s struggling economy.
Following the highest-level open talks in three decades between the two nations, Cuban officials remained firm in rejecting significant reforms pushed by the United States as part of President Barack Obama’s surprise move to re-establish ties and rebuild economic relations with the Communist-led country.
“One can’t think that in order to improve and normalize relations with the U.S., Cuba has to give up the principles it believes in,” Cuba’s top diplomat for U.S. affairs, Josefina Vidal, told The Associated Press after the end of the talks. “Changes in Cuba aren’t negotiable.”

What Are Your Kids Learning At University?

For one thing, this:

‘Paedophilia is natural and normal for males’

How some university academics make the case for paedophiles at summer conferences”

Is that enough? There is a lot of pressure coming from academics and others to turn civilized behavior around. There is a conscious effort to eliminate all rules and societal mores. These are the free-love young people of the sixties and seventies. They dropped acid and experimented with sexual deviance. Now they are teaching our young people. What do they have to say? How about:

The statement that paedophilia is “natural and normal” was made not three decades ago but last July. It was made not in private but as one of the central claims of an academic presentation delivered, at the invitation of the organisers, to many of the key experts in the field at a conference held by the University of Cambridge.

Other presentations included “Liberating the paedophile: a discursive analysis,” and “Danger and difference: the stakes of hebephilia.”

Hebephilia is the sexual preference for children in early puberty, typically 11 to 14-year-olds.”

Prof Ken Plummer, left, and former PIE head Tom O'Carroll

Another attendee, and enthusiastic participant from the floor, was one Tom O’Carroll, a multiple child sex offender, long-time campaigner for the legalisation of sex with children and former head of the Paedophile Information Exchange. “Wonderful!” he wrote on his blog afterwards. “It was a rare few days when I could feel relatively popular!”

Judge Accuses BATF Of ‘Fraud On The Court’

“The federal government has itself become a criminal cartel.”

ATF Director Jones

ATF Director Jones

Former ATF Agent Jay Dobyns sued his former employer:

Dobyns had sued his employer for failure to properly investigate an arson attack that destroyed his home and endangered his family, and for reneging on protection agreements over death threats he received, after the bureau withdrew his cover identity following the Hells Angels case. In September, Senior Judge Francis M. Allegra of the United States Court of Federal Claims awarded Dobyns $173,000 and denied government royalty claims against Dobyns for his book, seemingly providing an end to a prolonged six-year ordeal until the government challenged that ruling in the 11th hour. In a move surprising to many case-watchers, the judge then voided his own judgment, provoking speculation but no answers as to why.

Some of that may be getting clearer with the unsealing of case documents, now available on the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) system. Language used by Judge Allegra in his now-unsealed December 1 opinion does not mince words, and seems damning.

“[T]he court … issued an order voiding the prior judgment based upon indications that the defendant [ATF], through its counsel, had committed fraud on the court,” Allegra wrote.”

Read it here

Further investigation by David Codrea tells us this:

Further detailed allegations, being investigated by this reporter and seemingly corroborated by the unsealed opinion, include Judge Allegra being contacted by Internal Affairs Investigator Christopher Trainor, a key witness in the Dobyns case, concerning his being threatened by a main government witness — one the judge himself had raised perjury questions about — and chillingly,also threatened by lead government attorneys. Trainor had reportedly earlier given the intimidation to ATF, which opened a criminal investigation, and then approached ATF and Department of Justice attorneys, both of whom allegedly refused to report the witness tampering allegations to the judge. It is further alleged Trainor was warned by the DOJ attorney that if he reported the witness to Judge Allegra, his career at ATF would suffer.

The judge then reportedly notified Attorney General Eric Holder, then-Deputy AG and (“Number Two” at Justice) James Cole, and the Office of Inspector General of DOJ attorney fraud against the court, and issued an order barring seven of the attorneys from filing any further legal documents in the Dobyns case. Although no direct connection has been established, it is noted that the timing of the judge’s notification appears contemporaneous with Cole’s resignation and Holder’s announced resignation.”

Hershel Smith believes that this is a bigger scandal than Fast and Furious:

This is a very big deal, and it goes to show the lengths that the government went to cause disrepute on Mr. Dobyns. The Arizona Daily Star reporter that David cited can’t fathom why the justice department would have gone to these lengths in a simple contractual dispute. The answer is that this is more than a simple contractual dispute. This goes to the entire obscene connection of the government with running guns to the Mexican cartels in order to justify more gun control for Americans. They tried to ruin this man’s reputation and destroy his life.

It’s a picture of a failed state, because the government has lost the mandate of heaven. It cannot be entrusted with even the most basic safety, health and welfare of society. The federal government has itself become a criminal cartel.”

Emphasis added.

Read it here


Curiously—and almost certainly not coincidentally—Deputy Attorney General James Cole resigned and Attorney General Eric Holder announced his resignation at the same time that Judge Allegra alleged that DOJ committed fraud against the court and threatened witnesses. The DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) then refused to investigate the attorneys charged with fraud and the allegations of witness intimidation.

Orders to bury these criminal investigations could only come from the top of the Department of Justice, and it is highly unlikely that such decisions could be made without White House involvement.

At, Katie Pavlich has also printed a lengthy article covering the developing scandal.”

Since 2003, parts of the brigade have deployed in support of U.S. efforts there on at least three occasions.
Now, more than three years after the U.S. military presence in Iraq was thought over, about a quarter of the Panther Brigade will return with a new mission to help train Iraqi forces to fight the Islamic State.
About 1,000 paratroopers from the brigade will deploy this week as part of the Operation Inherent Resolve mission.”

How Will Al Sharpton Decide To Play This?

Shooting in Muskogee, Oklahoma. This is raw body camera footage from the camera worn by the police officer. It will be upsetting to some. It shows the shooting of a black man by a white cop.

The police were called by the pastor who was performing a wedding. The bride was a former girlfriend of the man who was shot. He had told her that he had a ‘Bullet with her name on it’ so the pastor called police.

The shooting happened Jan. 17 when Officer Chansey McMillin tried to search Terence Walker, 21, outside a church, according to KOTV. Police had been called to the scene due to reports of a disturbance between Walker and a woman identified as either his girlfriend or ex-girlfriend. Pastor Andre Jones made the 911 call, and told police “he’s here with a gun,” The Oklahoman reported.

McMillin reportedly felt a weapon during the pat down.

As he was being patted down, Walker took off running. McMillian, who was wearing a body camera, chased him.”

Surprise! Hungry Kids Are More Important To Parents Than Possible Illness

The writers at the New York Times are surprised by this.

Well-meaning people are buying mosquito nets and giving them away free to African villagers in an effort to control Malaria. That disease is transmitted by mosquitoes. But it seems that those same villagers are more concerned about feeding their hungry families than the bugs so they are using them for netting fish.

The do-gooders are upset.

They are also concerned that the fish population may be declining.

Really? No one could have foreseen something like this? They should have consulted with The Real Revo. Any one of the readers or writers could have told them exactly what was likely to happen.

mosquito net fishing

I know it’s not right,” Mr. Ndefi said, “but without these nets, we wouldn’t eat.”

Across Africa, from the mud flats of Nigeria to the coral reefs off Mozambique, mosquito-net fishing is a growing problem, an unintended consequence of one of the biggest and most celebrated public health campaigns in recent years.

The nets have helped save millions of lives, but scientists worry about the collateral damage: Africa’s fish.”
