Liberal Hypocrite Alert: Penny Pritzer Also “Bet Against America”

Remember this ad from last fall’s presidential campaign?

Or this?

As I write this post, Barack Obama’s nominee for Commerce Secretary, his campaign sugar mama Penny Pritzker is testifying before the Senate Commerce Committee. As it turns out, she also got lots of money from one of those evil offshore accounts.  As the Washington Times notes:

On financial disclosure forms, Ms. Pritzker revealed that she received $53.6 million in income in 2012 from a trust in the Bahamas. The income is described as being paid for “consulting services.” …

The Pritzker family has placed some of its money offshore for decades. Some lawmakers accuse Mr. Obama of hypocrisy for slamming Mr. Romney over the tax havens and then nominating two people for his second-term Cabinet who have held such investments. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew also had an account in the Cayman Islands.

“The president should have the same standard for his opponents as he does for his friends and financial backers,” said Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican.

Actually, it was more than $53.6 million. From the Wall Street Journal:

On the eve of her Senate confirmation hearing, commerce-secretary nominee Penny Pritzker alerted Congress that she mistakenly understated her 2012 income by at least $80 million.

The admission came in new financial disclosure documents that Ms. Pritzker filed with the Senate on Tuesday. The newly disclosed payment came from U.S. accounts and was tied to Ms. Pritzker’s work over the past decade carrying out a complex plan to divide her family’s assets—work that included restructuring, managing and selling various trusts, said her assistant, Susan Anderson.

Ms. Anderson said the omission was due to an inadvertent “clerical error.”

“The mistake was discovered by financial advisers to Ms. Pritzker who helped prepare her financial disclosure,” Ms. Anderson said in an emailed statement.

What’s another $30 million? After all, as Barbie reminded us, and as Lois Lerner restated during her planted question revealing that Obama’s IRS had targeted conservative groups, math is tough!

Don’t expect the Lame Stream Media to make more than a cursory mention of the blatant hypocrisy of the Obama administration. They didn’t utter a peep about former chief of staff, now Treasury Secretary Jack Lew’s Cayman Island bank accounts.


What You Know, Joe? Show Notes 1/13/13

Joe Biden prepares to release his carefully considered recommendations to prevent “gun violence,” which he has had in a drawer for the last 30 years, while Lame Stream Media continues to pretend that the emperor has clothes.

They’re back. The “No Labels” group, as in No Principles, No Brains and No Commitment to our rights wants to “compromise” on our liberty. I say screw that.

Taxation Without Cessation | The Weekly Standard (A MUST READ)

According to White House, Congressional Budget Office (CBO), and U.S. Census tallies, when John F. Kennedy was in the White House in 1962, federal tax revenues were $534 per capita, or $4,178 in today’s dollars. Last year (according to those same sources), federal tax revenues were $7,793 per capita. So, from 1962 to 2012, taxes rose 87 percent even after accounting for inflation and population growth. In other words, across the past 50 years, real (inflation-adjusted) per-capita taxes have nearly doubled.

Of course, this 87 percent increase in per-capita taxation hasn’t remotely kept the federal government from racking up higher deficit spending. With JFK in the White House in 1962, the federal government spent 7 percent more than it had available to spend—$1.07 going out for every $1 coming in. With Obama in the White House, it has spent $1.56 for every $1 available.

Biden’s Buffoonish Gun Ban Side Show: Today on The Teri O’Brien Show

This week we witnessed the ridiculous, predictable, and sometimes infuriating, spectacle of Joe Biden’s silly sideshow, in which he pretended that he and Barack Obama were interested in finding “solutions” to “gun violence,” when in fact for years their “solution” was pre-determined; specifically, infringement on the 2nd amendment rights of law abiding citizens. This idiotic Kabuki aside, we don’t need to wait until Tuesday to hear them unveil these “comprehensive” proposals. It’s a forgone conclusion. Everyone in this administration is hard-wired to believe that you have no right to defend yourself with a firearm, and everybody knows it. Even NBC’s David “Howdy Doody” Gregory can figure this one out. Will B. Hussein Obama attempt to continue his pattern of lawlessness by trampling on our rights with an end run around Congress, an executive order? We’ll talk about that with our guest, Mark Walters, columnist for Concealed Carry Magazine, host of Armed American Radio, and author of Lessons from Armed America.

Speaking of Mr. Gregory, as we warned you, despite his willful violation of the draconian anti-freedom D.C. gun laws that he enthusiastically supports, the authorities let him skate scot free, proving that there are two systems of justice, one for the rich and powerful, and one for the little people. Ah, but, Bitter Clinger, in this case, there’s more to it than that. Is it possible that the personal relationship between someone very close to Mr. Gregory and D.C. Attorney General, the man who decided to give the liberal newsreader a break, Irv Nathan, could have had something to do with this case?

Barack Obama presented his latest political hack for an important cabinet position, Jack Lew, infamous for his laughable lies about Barack Obama’s budget to a Senate panel in February 2011. The awesome Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) vows that he must not be confirmed. What say you?

Tune in today for the rest of the story.

Did Jack Lew Step in It on Fast and Furious? Will Anyone Else Notice? Show Notes: 7/1/12

 Is it just me, or shouldn’t someone else have noticed this stunning admission?

At the end of the show, we heard an exchange between Candy Crowley and White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew, in which he appears to respond to her question “Why did you assert executive privilege?” in the Fast and Furious matter by citing the “presidential need to get confidential advice.” When pressed if that was specific reason in this particular case, Mr. Lew said he wasn’t going to be more specific.


Lawrence O’Donnell and the Round Mound Whose Lies Astound, Michael Moore celebrate the Left’s victory in the Obamacare case, effusively praise John Roberts, and explain that this decision is just the first step down the road to single payer. Oh, there’s a shock!

Guest’s Ben Shapiro joined us to talk about his terrific book, Prime Time Propaganda, now out in paperback, and explains how he knew back in 2005 that John Roberts would eventually disappoint conservatives, and why he considers the Obamacare decision the worst one since Dred Scott.

Teri and Ben discuss why the people who think this case limited the federal government’s reach by using the Commerce Clause are wrong

Stefan, Patriot Come Lately, calls to share his answer to Teri’s question tweeted earlier in the week, “Why doesn’t Obama throw Eric Holder under the bus?” And also wisely recommends that if you aren’t following Teri on twitter, you do it now!
