Congressman Jeff Miller: Veterans Benefits Administration Tried To Spy On Investigators (Audio)

Miller: Veterans Benefits Administration Tried To Spy On Investigators – Daily Caller

.

.
House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Jeff Miller told DC-based WMAL Radio on Tuesday about his congressional staffers recently being spied on when they looked into various VA complaints at a regional Veterans Benefits Administration office.

His staff was told on “three different occasions” to go to a specific room to do their work but one VA employee said it wasn’t necessary.

Miller, a Republican from Florida, recounted that the “VBA’s acting director took that employee outside” for several minutes and when they returned, his staff was directed again to the specific room on a different floor.

His staffers discovered the room’s sound and video system were prepared to observe their work while they reviewed case files.

“In that room, both of the mics were hot and the camera itself was activated,” the committee chairman told WMAL host Larry O’Connor.

Miller continued, “My staff said, ‘We’re not going to do it in this room,’ and they requested to be taken to another room.”

VBA relocated the committee staffers after they pushed back about the use of the room.

When Department of Veterans Affairs Undersecretary for Benefits Allison Hickey was confronted at Monday night’s congressional VA hearing about the spying incident, Miller said that “there was no attempt to deny that it had occurred.”

Leftist Congressman Wants To Send DHS To Central America To Process Illegals For U.S. Entry (Video)

Say What? Democrat Rep. Wants DHS In Central America To Process Immigrants For U.S. Entry – Top Right News

.

.
According to one Democrat Congressman from, of all places, Texas – America doesn’t have a border security problem, despite the bum rush of hundreds of thousands of illegals from Central America this year.

Nope. The way to solve this influx is to hand them asylum in their home countries, before they even cross our border.

Um, what?

Yep, you heard right. Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) visited CNN’s “State of the Nation” and uttered his little bit of crazy for a national audience.

Watch:

.

.
O’Rourke actually wants us to send Homeland Security into Central America to start processing people as “refugees”, thereby allowing tens of thousands if not more, to come to the U.S.

You can’t fix stupid, but you can vote it out of office. A little hint to the citizens of Texas’ 16th District.

Congressman Gosar To File For Eric Holder’s Impeachment Over Illegal Alien Smuggling

Congressman To File For Eric Holder’s Impeachment As Complicit In Human Smuggling – Conservative Infidel

Rep Paul Gosar (R-AZ) told U.S. News that the plans to either draft articles of impeachment or co-sponsor and add his name as the 27th to an existing impeachment bill that was introduced in November by fellow Congressman Pete Olson (R-TX).

.

.
While the general lawlessness of the Obama/Holder regime has taken many objectionable forms, the final straw for Gosar is what he calls his “illegal alien smuggling,” his complicit disengagement from enforcement and implied consent to the ongoing activity as it relates to the transport and release of illegal aliens in Arizona by the DHS.

In a Thursday press release, Gosar said, “Flooding our streets with illegal aliens who are being abandoned without resources is not just inhumane and cruel, it is a crime and federal law bans alien smuggling.” He continues, saying, “This is the most lawless administration in history… It starts at the top with Eric Holder and if the chief law enforcement officer of the United States is not going to enforce the laws of this land, then he should be impeached.”

While Gosar is not a household name, he has had success previously in recruiting cosponsors in response to the illegal actions of Holder’s “Justice” Department during a congressional investigation into the ATF Fast and Furious scandal.

The result of Gosar’s previous effort was a vote 255-67 to hold Holder in contempt of Congress. Gosar had called for Holder’s resignation, but Obama stepped in and offered Holder protection under a dubious declaration of executive privilege. Gosar says he won’t make the mistake of calling for a resignation this time. He’ll be setting his sights on impeachment and has already spoken with the House leadership.

Rep Gosar said of his efforts, “My calls have been very, very successful in the Republican aspect and right now I’m working on the leadership in the House. It’s a difficult move because it means we’re coming to the last vestiges of how we deal with how we solve these problems, but when people look at the facts, we can’t keep doing this, we have to be a law-abiding country.”

Ear Wax-Eating Democrat Congressman: “We’ve Proved That Communism Works” (Videos)

Dem Rep: Communism Works! – Washington Free Beacon

Rep. Joe Garcia (D., Fla.) suggested “communism works” while discussing the U.S.-Mexico border and the amount of money and federal government jobs that are offered in border towns such as El Paso, Texas.

.

.
“The safest city in America is El Paso, Texas. It happens to be across the border from the most dangerous city in the America’s, which is Juarez. Right?” Garcia asked a Google Hangout participant.

“Two of the safest cities in America are on the border with Mexico. Of course, the reason is we’ve proved that communism works. If you give everybody a good government job, there is no crime,” Garcia said.

It should be noted that Rep. Garcia has had a rough two weeks. Last week, he was exposed for eating his own ear wax.

Long-Time Leftist Nutbag Congressman John Conyers Fails To Qualify For Election Ballot

Long-Time Dem Rep. John Conyers Fails To Qualify For Election Ballot – Big Government

Wayne County, Michigan officials reported this weekend that long-time Detroit Democrat Representative John Conyers didn’t submit enough signatures to qualify for the ballot this year.

.

.
Authorities say Conyers was 400 signatures short of having enough to qualify to run for re-election. Many of the signatures were thrown out because some of his signature-gatherers were not registered to vote in Michigan as required by law.

This violation of the state’s election law was brought to light by Conyers’ Democrat opponent, Horace Sheffield, who filed a complaint with the state after he learned that some of Conyers’ petition gatherers were not legal voters in accordance with the law.

The Congressman’s legal team is appealing the election board decision, but it isn’t likely he will be able to suddenly find over 400 new signatures to meet requirements.

This isn’t the first time a sitting Congressman missed his ballot signature requirement in the Wolverine State. In April of 2011, Republican Representative Thaddeus McCotter also ended up missing the signature limit on his nomination petitions, causing him to lose his place on the ballot.

McCotter had an additional problem that year, too. When it was discovered internally that he didn’t have enough signatures to stay on the ballot, his staff tried to manufacture the needed number. But the Michigan Secretary of State caught the attempt and ruled that the 9-year incumbent did not qualify for the ballot.

A year after he left office, McCotter filed a lawsuit against his former aides, claiming that they purposefully tried to engineer the loss of his seat. He always insisted he never knew that his staff manufactured fraudulent petitions.

War Hero Congressman Calls Out Democrats For Their “Fake Outrage” Over Benghazi Investigation (Video)

GOP Rep. Sternly Lectures Democrats On The Lessons He Learned In The Army During Impassioned House Floor Speech On Benghazi – The Blaze

Rep. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) blasted Democrats for expressing “fake outrage” and claiming the investigation into the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi is purely political. He cited some of the “lessons” he learned while serving in the Army to make his point.

“A couple lessons I learned in the Army were you moved to the sound of gunfire and the most important step in the troop leading procedures is to supervise the execution of you orders,” he said. “When Americans were fighting for their lives in Benghazi, Barack Obama did neither. He sent no quick reaction force and didn’t even stay in the situation room to supervise the execution of his orders. We expect more from the lieutenants in the army than our president gave us that night.”

.

.
Cotton accused the Obama administration of covering up the president’s “failure of leadership by stonewalling.” However, Congress is determined to uncover the truth, he added.

Democrats “express great outrage at politicizing” Benghazi, he continued. However, he suggested their outrage is extremely selective.

“When I was leading troops in Iraq in 2006, men and women who were being shot at and blown up by al Qaeda, where was the outrage as they fundraised endlessly off the Iraq war?” he asked. “Where was the outrage as they viciously attacked our commanders? Where was the outrage when they said soldiers were war criminals? Where was the outrage when they said the war was lost? Where was the outrage when they said only high school dropouts join the Army?”

The congressman then revealed one more lesson he learned while in the Army: We leave no man behind. And we will not leave these four men behind.”

Congressman Blake Farenthold Introduces Bill To Prevent Eric Holder From Receiving Paycheck

GOP Congressman Pushes Bill To Cut Off Eric Holder’s Paycheck – Daily Caller

.

.
A Republican congressman from Texas has introduced a bill in the House of Representatives that would stop the government from paying Attorney General Eric Holder’s salary.

Rep. Blake Farenthold’s “Contempt Act” would prohibit any federal employee who has been found in contempt of Congress from getting a taxpayer-funded paycheck.

In 2012, the House voted to hold Holder in contempt over his refusal to hand over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal.

Farenthold specifically referenced Holder in his statement about the legislation.

“In 2012, the House of Representatives voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over documents related to the botched Fast and Furious gun-running sting operation – despite this fact, he is still receiving his paycheck courtesy of American taxpayers,” the lawmaker said.

During a contentious House Judiciary Committee hearing last week with Holder, Farenthold alluded to the legislation: “If he continues to refuse to resign, my bill would at least prevent hardworking American taxpayers from paying his salary.”

Farenthold also noted how the House is expected to to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify about her role in the agency’s targeting of conservative and tea party groups. But he noted that because Lerner has already resigned, this bill will not affect her.

“The American people should not be footing the bill for federal employees who stonewall Congress or rewarding government officials’ bad behavior,” he said. “If the average American failed to do his or her job, he or she would hardly be rewarded. High-ranking government officials should be treated no differently than everyone else.”

Cancer Patient / Obamacare Victim That Democrat Congressman Tried To Silence Speaks Out

Cancer Victim Silenced By Rep. Gary Peters Speaks Out – Washington Free Beacon – Washington Free Beacon

Julie Boonstra, a cancer patient who was kicked of off her health plan due to Obamacare, lashed out at Rep. Gary Peters (D., Mich.) on Saturday after lawyers for his campaign demanded that Michigan broadcasters cease airing ads featuring her story.

.

.
Boonstra, a Michigan resident, was diagnosed with leukemia five years ago. She was recently kicked off of her healthcare plan due to regulations passed as part of President Barack Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which Peters voted in favor of.

After relating her story publicly in an ad produced by the advocacy group Americans for Prosperity (AFP), Peters dispatched lawyers to prevent the spot from running on local television stations.

.

.
Boonstra, who says she is now struggling to pay out of pocket for her rising healthcare costs, told the Washington Free Beacon she is stunned by Peters’ efforts to censor her story.

“I’m appalled. I’m appalled as a mom, as a woman, and as a cancer patient, as someone living with cancer… who has stood before this nation to say, ‘I cannot afford that out of pocket expense,’” said Boonstra, who said she was given a 20 percent chance of surviving her disease. “As a Michigan resident, to silence my voice, I’m absolutely appalled.”

Peters, who is running for a seat in the Senate, instructed his legal council earlier this week to demand that stations stop running the AFP ad until additional evidence of the cancer victim’s claims could be produced.

“For the sake of both FCC licensing requirements and the public interest, your station should immediately require AFP to provide the factual documentation for its claims if you are going to continue airing this advertising,” read the letter from Peters’ lawyers.

The letter went on to question Boonstra’s motives and the facts presented in AFP’s ad.

Boonstra said she is “surprised” by what she described as the Peters campaign’s strong-arm tactics.

“I’m very surprised,” Boonstra said just hours after she attempted to confront Peter face-to-face at his Bloomfield Hills residence. “I have every right to tell my story and express my point of view and opinion on how Obamacare has affected me.”

Boonstra attempted to confront the congressman at his door, but he did not answer when she knocked.

“I just went up to his house and knocked on his door,” Boonstra recalled. “I would like to meet with him, but he did not answer. I know someone was home, so I left a letter there for him.”

Boonstra wrote in her letter, “I don’t understand why you’re trying to silence my voice. I have every right to speak out and don’t understand why you’re doing this.”

A spokesman for the Peters campaign did not respond to a request for comment on the matter.

“The fact that Representative Peters would sic his legal team on a Michigan mother battling cancer to muzzle her tells you everything you need to know about his record of putting politics over people,” AFP-Michigan State Director Scott Hagerstrom said in a statement.

“This attack on her credibility is disgusting, unwarranted, and inexcusable,” Hagerstrom said. “Congressman Peters and his indecent campaign team should be ashamed of themselves.”

Asked what she would say to Obama were she given the chance, Boonstra responded: “This law has not benefited him. I know there are some people out there who wanted to believe that. I have not seen the benefits so far.”

“This [law] is hurting me,” she continued. “I thought the intention was to help and it’s not. I’m angry [Obama] lied to me. He told me I could keep my healthcare plan and that was very untrue. I just want it to be clear that I have every right to tell my story.”

Leftist Congressman Admits Nobody Has Read The $1.1T Spending Bill That Just Passed In The House

Who Read 1,582-Page $1.1T Spending Bill? Congressman: ‘Nobody Did’ – CNS

When asked whether he read the 1,528-page, $1.1 trillion government spending bill before he voted for it yesterday, Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) said, “Nobody did!”

.

.
On Capitol Hill on Thursday, CNSNews.com asked Blumenauer: “The omnibus bill yesterday, it was 1,582 pages, did you have a chance to read all the pages before voting on it?”

Blumenauer laughed and said: “Nobody did!”

“Nobody did?” said the CNSNews.com reporter.

“Nope,” said Blumenauer.

In an e-mail to CNSNews.com, Blumenauer’s communications director, Patrick Malone, said: “A reminder that the Republicans complained and complained about not having time to read bills when the Dems were in charge and then keep dropping bombs like this on us.”

The $1.1 trillion bill will fund the federal government for the rest of fiscal year 2014, which ends on Sept. 30, 2014.

Sixty-four Republicans and three Democrats voted against the legislation. The final vote was 359-67. The legislation was opposed by conservative groups and conservative members of Congress.

The bill increases federal spending by $44.8 billion this year over the spending level previously set by Congress.

Congressman Issa Charges HHS Secretary Sebelius With Criminal Obstruction Of HealthCare.gov Investigation

Issa Charges Sebelius With Criminal Obstruction Of HealthCare.gov Investigation – Nextgov

The lead congressman investigating HealthCare.gov’s dismal performance during its first two months online ratcheted up the executive-congressional conflict on Wednesday, accusing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius of criminal obstruction of his investigation.

.

The dispute centers around a letter the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services sent to a contractor that worked on the online health insurance marketplace, directing it not to turn over correspondence and other documents to congressional investigators and stating CMS would manage any congressional inquiries.

That letter amounted to “criminal obstruction of a congressional investigation,” according to House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif.

“Obstructing a congressional investigation is a crime,” Issa said in a statement. “The federal obstruction laws reflect the fact that Congress’ right of access to information is constitutionally based and critical to the integrity and effectiveness of our oversight and investigative activities.”

HHS Spokeswoman Joanne Peters responded that the department is attempting to comply with Issa’s investigation while ensuring it doesn’t reveal any private consumer information or technology secrets.

“We have worked to accommodate the committee’s oversight interests in a number of ways, including by allowing the committee to review unredacted copies of the requested documents in person,” she said in a statement. “The committee already has copies of the requested documents that have been redacted to protect sensitive security information.”

The department plans to respond directly to Issa later, Peters said.

Issa issued a subpoena in October to compel Sebelius to turn over documents related to HealthCare.gov’s troubled launch.

His charges come on the same day Sebelius asked her department’s inspector general to launch his own investigation into HealthCare.gov’s failures. She also asked CMS, which led the Obamacare implementation, to appoint a chief risk officer to investigate why risks weren’t identified during the building of HealthCare.gov and how the agency can avoid such failures in the future.

Issa’s committee has uncovered evidence of significant doubts among contractors that HealthCare.gov would be successful upon launch. He has also charged government officials with forcing last minute changes to the site for political reasons that may have contributed to its troubles after launch.

The oversight committee’s Democratic leaders did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Issa’s charges.

HealthCare.gov has been operating generally well since Nov. 30 following a “tech surge” by the government and contractors that included 400 bug fixes, increased server capacity and a new management structure.

About 137,000 people enrolled in new health insurance plans through the marketplace during its first two months online. An additional 227,000 people enrolled through state-run online marketplaces.

The government hopes to enroll 7 million people in new insurance plans by the end of March. Some experts worry the slow start to enrollment may deter young and healthy people from enrolling in plans through the site, leading to unsustainably high premiums for people who do purchase the plans.
