U.S. claims that dozens of Russian diplomats and their spouses cheated to get health care aid meant for the poor drew a sharp rebuke Thursday from a top Russian official who blamed the criminal case on “Russophobic forces” interested in scuttling progress toward Russia-U.S. cooperation in confronting world conflicts.
Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov made the remarks carried by Russia’s state news agency, ITAR-Tass, after charges were announced in New York City against 49 current and former Russian diplomats and their wives.
He called the charges “no more than a cheap spin effort, no more than a desire to fulfill the order of Russophobic forces in the United States.”

A Treasury Inspector General met with Tucker’s attorney in Tucker’s home this Friday morning.
The IRS employee stated that the letter informing Tucker, a healthcare broker and Obamacare critic, that there was an irregularity on his taxes ten years ago had nothing at all to do with Tucker’s participation in aiding an outspoken Obamacare critic who had recently lost coverage during his cancer treatments. The fact that the cancer patient received an audit on the very same day Tucker received his letter left the efficient IRS agent unfazed.
Tucker cocks his head quizzically, as does the national coalition of non-progtards.
“They took my statement and advised me to resolve this issue with the IRS as soon as possible. If not, I will be visited again by the IRS and they could garnish my wages or put a lien on my home,” Tucker reports.
As Tucker has said in the past, “paging Darrell Issa, Darrell Issa. Pick up the Red, White and Blue courtesy phone, please.”

With President Obama’s approval ratings sinking thanks to the failing Obamacare rollout and the unpopular nuclear deal with Iran, Obama broke the media emergency glass to access the MSNBC host Chris Matthews.

Spurred by panicked Democrat Senators, a hush-hush meeting was held between Sen. Michael Bennet (Colo.), chairman of the Senate Democrats’ campaign arm and White House chief of staff Denis McDonough, late last month.
The Hill reports that the two discussed “what the White House could do to help vulnerable Senate Democrats” and how to “develop a stronger relationship with the White House.”
Democratic senators fear the White House is not sympathetic enough to their plight. After the government shutdown, they were confident they would retain the Senate, but optimism vanished as problems with the healthcare law mounted.

Politico- “I think Joe Biden will go down in history as one of the best vice presidents ever. And he has been with me, at my side, in every tough decision that I’ve made from going after Bin Laden to dealing with the health care issues to, you name it, he’s been there.”
Texas Republican Ted Cruz is tired of President Barack Obama continuing to ignore both the law and the U.S. Constitution, saying Obama’s behavior is similar to that exhibited by leaders of “dictatorial societies.”
