House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., issued the following statement:

Today a Federal judge ordered that the Department of Justice must submit by October 1 a privilege log of withheld documents related to Operation Fast and Furious.  I am grateful and pleased by that.  This Administration has been so intent on hiding the contents of these documents that it allowed Attorney General Holder to be held in contempt instead of just turning them over to Congress.  The privilege log will bring us closer to finding out why the Justice Department hid behind false denials in the wake of reckless conduct that contributed to the violent deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and countless Mexican citizens.

The post provides charts that will supposedly show your “Right-Wing brother” just how wrong he is about his claims that Obama increased government spending and the deficit.

Here are the two charts I’d like to debunk:

Wow, it looks like Obama is a very austere POTUS and all these claims about increased government spending and deficits are just hogwash.

But the author performs a simple trick to make his case – He takes all the government spending in 2009 and attributes it to Bush.

It’s true, the Federal government spending in 2009 was set in 2008 but the author forgets about a little item in early 2009 that didn’t have anything to do with Bush – The 2009 Stimulus.

The 2009 Stimulus added $787 billion to the government outlays and that…

As annoying as the ALS Ice Bucket Challenges littering up everyone’s Facebook feeds are right now, they actually have done a lot of good — creating a 1,000% spike in ALS donations. But forget all that, we can officially pack it in and shut it down now, because Charlie Sheen has gone and ruined the game for everyone in the most Charlie Sheen-iest way possible. Let me stop you right now because I know what you’re already thinking, and yes, he basically just dumps a bunch of money over his head.

On the plus side, he does plan on donating the money he dumps over himself ($10,000) to the ALS association. Also he nominates Jon Cryer, Chuck Lorre, and Ashton Kutcher, because of course he does. Sorry dudes, that’s a tough one. Give in to taunting by Charlie Sheen or give a big middle finger to a noble cause?…

The Feds manipulating data ? Who would have thought ?

The US is having one of its coldest years on record, as evidenced by record Great Lakes ice, and many pronouncements of record or near record cold winter and summer monthly temperatures by states and the National Weather Service.

But after data tampering by NCDC, this year has been just below average temperature, and only 41st coldest since 1895.

ScreenHunter_1750 Aug. 07 21.26

The actual thermometer data shows 2014 as 7th coldest on record so far, and coldest since 1979

ScreenHunter_1751 Aug. 07 21.31

More than two-thirds of the US has been below normal temperature so far this year.

YearTDeptUS (1)

NCDC accomplishes their feat of destroying the US temperature record, through a phenomenal hockey stick of data tampering- which cools the past by almost two degrees relative to the current year.

ScreenHunter_1752 Aug. 07 21.34

Note that according to NCDC, this year has been warmer than almost every year in the 1960s. This massive corruption defies both explanation and imagination.

Accepting the challenge from Keith Yandle of the Phoenix Coyotes, BizNasty stood atop a mountain wearing only speedos as a freakin’ helicopter doused him with a bucket of freezing cold glacier water.

Bissonnette called out Lebron James, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Let’s see if they can top that.

A longtime activist, Redford, 70, said he worked for Standard Oil Co. in El Segundo for three years before his movie career took off, so he knows how damaging oil extraction is to public health.

“The oil companies have been simply getting away for too long with not paying their fair share,” he said.

Entertainment magnates on the other hand apparently aren’t bound by such moral obligations.

Time Offers Readers The Opportunity To Vote For First Woman On The Dollar Bill

 

 

Woman Dollar Bill Poll

 

 

 

” Eleanor Roosevelt? Harriet Tubman? Beyoncé? Cast your vote in the poll below.

  Is it time to put a woman on our paper currency? President Obama went on record today saying it’s a “pretty good idea.” During a speech in Kansas City, Obama said he received a letter from a young girl asking why there aren’t any women on American paper money. (Dollar coins with Susan B. Anthony and Sacagawea are still in circulation, but they are no longer being minted, and Martha Washington appeared on a paper note in the 19th century.)

  Well, if Congress is taking suggestions… who do you think should get the honor? Take our poll: “

 

 

    Two things strike us about this poll … firstly that Ayn Rand Is the runaway leader but even more-so the fact that Time Inc included her in the first place . Ayn Rand rocks … Go cast your ballot . We don’t imagine that these are the results that either Obama or Time had in mind .

About Halfway Through This Video It Becomes Obvious Why Bank’s New Ad Has Received Almost 3 Million Views in Just Days

 

 

 

 

 

” TD Canada wanted to say thank you to their customers this year in a way they felt was “unique and distinctive.”

“We thought we’d really kick it up a notch,” said Chris Stamper, SVP corporate marketing at TD Canada Trust.

  And that they did.

  The bank posted a video online showing them morph an ATM machine into what they called an “automatic thanking machine,” stunning pre-selected customers by dispensing a unique gift to each of them.

  But the bank wasn’t finished yet. The video has undoubtedly gone mega-viral because of what happens in the second half. That’s when the bank kicked it up several notches and delivered an additional, heartfelt gift to each of the customers.”

This GIF Depicting Voter Turnout By State In Presidential Elections Is Cooler Than You’d Expect

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The GIF at the top of this story is fascinating if you enjoy maps, politics or scanning for patterns.

  It depicts voter turnout by state in presidential elections from 1980 to 2012.

 It’s an impressive graphic. It caught my eye on Reddit, and I watched it repeatedly while writing this story. I even took some time and checked the numbers against Census Bureau data to be sure it’s accurate. (Note: the legend is a bit small, but red stands for low turnout and green for high turnout — and the colors are on the spectrum following the ROYGBIV pattern we learned in secondary school.) “

No More `Permanent’ Emails With New Service

 

 

 

 

 

” Since the dawn of the Internet, email users have been haunted by the finality of hitting the “send” button.

No more.

  What could be the foremost of all First World problems — the inability to retrieve or delete an ill-conceived email — is now a thing of the past for users of Pluto Mail, according to the Harvard law student who created it.

“ I’ve been annoyed with the fact that any email I send lasts forever, and I think Snapchat popularized the more-forgettable Internet, and I thought it would be great to bring it to email. It’s a very salient problem. I think everyone has had this ‘uh oh’ moment,” said David Gobaud, founder and CEO of Pluto Labs Inc. “Basically the Pluto service turns your emails into dynamic ones that you can maintain control over. I built a new email server that turns an email into a living document.”

  Gobaud said Pluto Mail allows people with sender’s remorse to edit, delete or set an expiration date on their emails. The product, which was released in early March, already has thousands of 
users and continues to grow by the day, he said.

  Pluto Mail isn’t an email provider but allows users to apply the service to their own email addresses — including Gmail, Outlook and Apple Mail — and then send messages as they normally would. But once the send button is hit, the Pluto Mail user can delete an email’s content, edit it or set an expiration time. The service also informs the sender if the recipient has already opened it. “

LA Street Artist Blasts Obama For‘Scandalous’ Fundraiser

 

 

 

” As President Obama arrives in Los Angeles for his $32,000 per plate fundraiser at the home of Shonda Rhimes this week, a local street artist is pointing out the irony of the producer of the hit TV show Scandal, a show about a Washington public relations firm that specializes in managing political scandals, hosting the producer of such actual scandals as the cover-up surrounding the Benghazi attack, the lost hard-drives of IRS officials targeting conservatives, and the Fast and Furious gun running scheme.

  Posters went up Monday night all over Hollywood around Rhimes’s Hancock Park home and the Sunset Gower Studios where Scandal is filmed.”

 

 

 

 

” The posters feature a modified version of the Scandal logo, which now reads “Scandals” and a quote from Rhimes’s infamous commencement speech at Dartmouth where she urged graduates, “Don’t be an asshole.” The artist added a hashtag to the epithet in a seeming nod to another part of Rhimes’s speech in which the producer called out online social movements like Michelle Obama’s #SaveOurGirls as being faux-activism. “A hashtag is not a movement,” Rhimes declared. “
