Relevance and Irrelevance
Pfeiffer came out on Sunday and told everyone how “irrelevant” it is to want to know where BO was on the night of the Benghazi attacks. As Americans were dying, it would be nice if BO had been involved or, in the briefing room. Makes one wonder where he was and what he was doing at that point in time. Of course, since the spokespeople for the administration says “we’re just dumb”, we would like to know who the hell is minding the store. Chris Wallace asked Pfeiffer several time in several ways, Sunday, where BO was the night of the attacks in Benghazi. Pfeiffer ran and stuttered and tried to shift the conversation getting more then a little perturbed at Wallace.Wallace was having none of it. No one in the BO administration ever gives an honest answer, always playing politics when there isn’t a reason to lie and obfuscate. Running the government like a bunch of mafia dons. Maybe he had J-Z and Beyoncé over that evening and the situation room was occupied. Wherever BO was it is a source of embarrassment or they wouldn’t be hiding the truth from us. So, they just make stuff up. Nakoula is still in jail over the lies of BO and Clinton.
Wallace pressed him further: “With due respect, you didn’t answer my question: what did the president do that night?” Pfeiffer said that Obama was in touch with his national security team, but as Wallace pointed out, he didn’t talk to the Secretary of State except for one time after the attack was over, didn’t talk to the Secretary of Defense, didn’t talk with the Joint Chiefs of Staff as it developed.
Finally, Wallace asked whether Obama was in the Situation Room. “I don’t remember what room the President was in on that night,” shot back Pfeiffer, “and that’s a largely irrelevant fact.” Wallace continued to press the point, and Pfeiffer continued to evade.
This isn’t going away….IG report paints a grim picture of the illegal goings on in the DOJ. All of this scandal around “Fast and Furious” doc leaks from the DOJ to smear a whistleblower. Of course, Eric Holder knows nothing about this as well. For all the bragging BO does about his appointees, how “smart” these people are, they sure do plenty of dumb stuff and usually know nothing when it’s brought to their attention. They hold us to the standards they refuse to live up to.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General published a new report Monday that confirms former U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke leaked a document intended to smear Operation Fast and Furious scandal whistleblower John Dodson.
The DOJ IG said it found “Burke’s conduct in disclosing the Dodson memorandum to be inappropriate for a Department employee and wholly unbefitting a U.S. Attorney.”
“We are referring to OPR our finding that Burke violated Department policy in disclosing the Dodson memorandum to a member of the media for a determination of whether Burke’s conduct violated the Rules of Professional Conduct for the state bars in which Burke is a member,” the IG wrote.
The DOJ actions are really speaking much louder then words. It’s been discovered the dept. went after 3 employees of FOX, two reporters and a producer, their personal emails. While the left may keep up their defense of everyone of BO’s buds, this is tyranny. Nothing more and nothing less. Corruption, cronyism, unwarranted surveillance of the media, what’s next, re-education camps?
“We are outraged to learn today that James Rosen was named a criminal co-conspirator for simply doing his job as a reporter. In fact, it is downright chilling. We will unequivocally defend his right to operate as a member of what up until now has always been a free press.”
So, gathering, investigating, and reporting the news is now a crime if you don’t agree with BO and his henchmen. Video at the link
As for the IRS, wait, the other shoe will drop shortly. It’s not over. Nothing stays quiet in DC for very long once the ball starts rolling and the first person speaks out.
The US is agreeable to the UN Arms Treaty and will sign it. It has to get 67 votes in the Senate to pass. BO says it won’t have any effect on Second Amendment Rights……… uh-huh. Right along with this non-announcement we find out the person who will push for its passage, Susan Rice, is going to be appointed as National Security advisor……uh-huh.
Oh, and the Senate is doing the mark-up on the Immigration Bill….going nowhere in the House. Shumer says “our Republicans”, hopefully they won’t go for this mess of a lie either.
