With allies already in Congress and the White House, Boeing has stretched its influence to the State Department as well.

It’s Official: America is an OLIGARCHY and NOT a Democracy
Posted on April 16, 2014 by WashingtonsBlog
Scientific Study Shows that the U.S. Is an Oligarchy
We noted last year:
American democracy – once a glorious thing – has devolved into an oligarchy, according to two leading IMF officials, the former Vice President of the Dallas Federal Reserve, the head of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, Moody’s chief economist and many others.
But don’t take their word for it …
The family members that are going to fight need to upload personal video messages about themselves, so the world can see who the Feds are going to try to kill. This will not let the media try to trivialize the family and down play the States evilness.
If we had the chance to meet the kids and mothers of Waco Texas it would have been a different story.

By Tim Alberta | April 10, 2014
Several dozen frustrated House conservatives are scheming to infiltrate the GOP leadership next year—possibly by forcing Speaker John Boehner to step aside immediately after November's midterm elections.
The conservatives' exasperation with leadership is well known.

Some say it's enough to coalesce behind—and start whipping votes for—a single conservative leadership candidate.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said today that Americans need to stand up to "a deliberate plan by the president of the United States" to collapse the nation's law enforcement system regarding illegal immigration.
In a Senate speech, Sessions said:
WASHINGTON — Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary, is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act.
Mr. Obama accepted Ms. Sebelius’s resignation this week, and on Friday morning he will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her, officials said.

A fed-up Attorney General Eric Holder is accusing congressional critics of launching “unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly and divisive” attacks on him and the Obama administration.
During a speech to the National Action Network in New York on Wednesday lauding the organization’s effort to advance racial equality, a heated Holder went a little off-script.
“Forget about me [specifically]. Look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated yesterday by a House committee,” Holder told the crowd. “What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?”
