Real Congressional Probe of Obama Surveillance Tactics Sorely Needed

Lost in the mainstream media push to have the public accept the tall tale that “the Russians hacked the election,” which appears to have been crafted by disaffected Democrats and their far-left allies, is a series of unresolved issues that are in serious need of investigation.

After a classified report delivered to Congress by the Justice Department purportedly lacked the necessary evidence to support President Donald Trump’s assertion that his predecessor had engaged in wiretapping, politicians and news outlets began to massage the public psyche with the notion that the story involving the Obama administration’s investigation of then-candidate Trump, and of individuals involved in his campaign, is somehow a closed book.

Obama Holds Secret Meeting with Hollywood Donors

Following a number of recent Left Coast fundraising stops, President Barack Obama got down to business at a late night dinner meeting with some key members of the Hollywood elite.

Not only was the get-together with DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, chairman of Walt Disney Studios Alan Horn, and A-list actor Will Smith not on Obama’s public schedule, it was also intentionally kept from the press.

The White House failed to make mention of the meeting to reporters who were traveling with the president as he made his way to fundraising events and a television studio in Los Angeles.

Kanye, Barack, and Steve

It seems that Kanye West is ready and willing to express aloud whatever he is thinking at any given moment.

Within a recent one-week span, the rap star appeared at an international advertising festival in France, made his way to Tennessee after honeymooning in Mexico, performed at a music event in the Volunteer State, and jetted off for further stops in Miami and New York.

The hip-hop artist, who currently refers to himself as Yeezus, is forever making headlines in the entertainment press and beyond. In fact, he has become quite famous for his spontaneous utterances, and ever since he and reality show queen Kim Kardashian became husband and wife, his media megaphone has been ratcheting up to a higher and higher volume.

The Staging of the Illegal Immigrant Children Crisis

Thousands of illegal immigrant children, who somehow made the arduous journey from Central America, have arrived in the United States.

The sheer number of illegal border crossings by minors, who are reported to have made the trek to the U.S. unaccompanied by parents or guardians, has severely strained the capacity of the U.S. Border Patrol’s detention facilities in South Texas. In order to adequately house the children, officials have had to resort to the use of warehouses and military bases, some of which are located out of state.

Obama Gives Hollywood the Cold Shoulder

Northern California technology companies and Southern California entertainment firms have been engaged in a public relations and lobbying war over pending legislation in the House and Senate.

The legislation purports to address Internet piracy, and Hollywood has already lost a key battle involving it.

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House of Representatives, and the corresponding PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate, would purportedly expand the ability of U.S. law enforcement and copyright holders to fight online trafficking in copyrighted intellectual property and counterfeit goods.

Loaded Liberals Love Obama’s “Buffett” Tax

President Obama’s “Buffett” tax on those who make more than a million has resurrected the worn out class warfare rhetoric that so many Americans have simply had enough of.

But what about Hollywood’s affluent executives and wealthy celebrities?

Bill Maher is on board with the president. The HBO “Real Time” host wondered aloud on a recent episode of his show about how middle-class Americans could vote against their supposed economic interests (translation: vote for Republicans).

President Obama Fundraises While Our Future Burns

What does the President of the United States do when the country is teetering on the brink of financial ruin?

Well, in Obama’s case he heads to the New York home of movie executive Harvey Weinstein for a fundraiser.

Weinstein co-hosted a trendy affair at his West Village digs, along with Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour.

Celebrities in attendance at the fundraiser included Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband Chris Martin, Jimmy Fallon, Vera Wang, Alicia Keys, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. All purportedly paid a ticket price of $35,800 of which $5,000 dollars was doled out to the Obama re-election campaign and $30,800 was hustled over to the Democratic National Committee.

Oprah: Obama’s Secret Weapon

A lot of folks who were enthusiastic during President Obama’s 2008 campaign have turned lukewarm.

But not Oprah Winfrey. The former queen of daytime talk appears to be ready to reprise her unprecedented chief political endorser role, this time for Obama’s 2012 campaign.

Winfrey always had a habit of staying away from politics, but she supposedly changed her mind when she heard Obama’s famous speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention.

She may have ended her daytime show and may temporarily be struggling with her new cable channel, but her endorsement power is still intact, particularly when it comes to Democrats and Independent female voters.

Obama Seeks Hollywood Advice on Illegal Immigration

One week after holding a series of Hollywood fundraisers, President Obama came out and decried the “carnival barkers” who in his view are diverting the nation’s attention away from more important issues.

Obama’s comments were given at a press conference, which was set up to mark the unveiling of his long-form birth certificate. Immediately following his brief statement sans questions, Obama hopped a plane and headed to a taping of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”

Next on his calendar the president made the decision to deal with the critical issue of illegal immigration by seeking counsel from celebrities including Eva Longoria, America Ferrera and Rosario Dawson.

Obama’s War and Hollywood’s Silence

Now that the Obama administration has decided to launch a “kinetic military action,” thereby intervening in what appears to be a struggle between Islamic jihadists and a murderous dictator, almost no one in Hollywood is voicing any opposition.

Aside from Michael Moore, outspoken celebrities who very publicly castigated the war effort that was engaged in by the Bush administration are now strangely silent over Obama’s flexing of U.S. military muscles.

This is in stark contrast to a few years back when gobs of celebrities picked up their anti-war megaphones.

Here’s a sampling:
