Hillary’s Highly Paid IT Guru At State Department Had No National Security Experience

Clinton’s politically appointed State Department information technology manager had no national security experience and may have enjoyed a 55 percent pay hike after Clinton departed as secretary of state in February 2013, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation.
Bryan Pagliano joined Clinton in 2009 as a top-level IT strategist and adviser. He previously was IT director of Clinton’s unsuccessful campaign for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination. The White House personnel office must approve political appointees before they are hired.
Pagliano was hired as a GS-15 even though he had no national security experience or security clearance. He was paid $140,000 annually at the outset but that was reduced to $136,000 in 2011 and 2012, according to the Asbury Park Press, which posts federal compensation data.
Pagliano described himself at the State Department on his LinkedIn page as a “strategic advisor and special projects manager” to the department’s Chief Technology Officer.
He was assigned to the State Department’s Bureau of Information Resource Management, a highly classified system which manages the digital traffic of 50,000 U.S. diplomats and foreign service officers at the 250 U.S. embassies and consulates located around the world.
Prior to working for Hillary’s presidential campaign, Pagliano was a senior systems engineer at Community IT Innovators, a small IT firm that catered to non-profit organizations. The organization represented liberal advocacy groups, community services organizations, schools and NGO’s, according to its web site.

Obamacare’s Website Crashing Because It Doesn’t Want You To Know Expensive The Plans Are, Creates “Traffic Bottleneck” By Forcing Users To Create Account Before Seeing Prices…

The website requires that individuals looking for coverage enter personal information before comparing plans. IT experts believe that this requirement is causing the website to crash.
A growing consensus of IT experts, outside and inside the government, have figured out a principal reason why the website for Obamacare’s federally-sponsored insurance exchange is crashing. forces you to create an account and enter detailed personal information before you can start shopping. This, in turn, creates a massive traffic bottleneck, as the government verifies your information and decides whether or not you’re eligible for subsidies. HHS bureaucrats knew this would make the website run more slowly. But they were more afraid that letting people see the underlying cost of Obamacare’s insurance plans would scare people away.
HHS didn’t want users to see Obamacare’s true costs
“ was initially going to include an option to browse before registering,” report Christopher Weaver and Louise Radnofsky in the Wall Street Journal. “But that tool was delayed, people familiar with the situation said.” Why was it delayed? “An HHS spokeswoman said the agency wanted to ensure that users were aware of their eligibility for subsidies that could help pay for coverage, before they started seeing the prices of policies.” (Emphasis added.)

Ezra Klein: Obamacare Rollout Has So Far ‘Been a Big Failure’

Liberal MSNBC contributor Ezra Klein continued his criticism of the Obamacare website Monday on Morning Joe, saying it was a “big failure” so far on the part of the Obama administration.
“The way this IT is going out is a disaster,” he said. “They have done a terrible job on this website. We’re a couple weeks in now. People can’t sign up. People have tried 20, 30, 40 times. It’s one thing for that to be true in the first three or four days, it’s another for it to be true two or three weeks in.”
There is a concern the website has deeper, more systemic problems beyond just glitches and too much traffic, Klein said.
“One of the Obama administration’s jobs, separate from all of the political stuff we talk about here, is to simply run things like this well, to run their signature legislative initiative well, to do government in a way that makes people confident and able to use it,” he said. “On that so far, this has been a big failure.”

‘Spam King’ Obama world’s biggest IT failure

‘Spam King’ Obama world’s biggest IT failurePresident Barack Hussein Obama—who virtually lives in-your-face in cyberspace with a tag team sending out “just-$5-more” messages to everyone including the poor—is the world’s biggest IT failure.

Spam King’ Obama is not just responsible for a whopping $634-million and still counting on the failed website, which one week after its launch still spits out user logins, his National Security Agency’s $2 billion mega spy center in Utah is going up in pretty colored flames.

Things are so bad on the Internet for Obama that some might think the 30-year old bulls of the tech industry with whom he met soon after his 2008 election, might be sabotaging him.

Thanks to radio talk show king Rush Limbaugh, the whole Internet World, or most of it, now knows that the website, at first boastfully estimated to come in at $93.7 million,  soared sky high to $634-million—without signing on a single sucker.

The 404-error warning website cannot get to the millions of low-information voters waiting in line to sign onto the Affordable Act (ObamaCare), begging the question: Where’s the astroturfing David Axelrod when you need him?
