Relevance and Irrelevance

Tea%20Party%20Difference%201%20KarlPfeiffer 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.

  1. Waiting for 2012

    There may a very good reason why they didn’t want Bamster in the room–they’re running guns to Syria and Al-Quada, and they ALL knew what was going to go down at the embassy. If Bamster was there, he couldn’t say he didn’t know. Technical loophole stuff. Just a thought.

    • Plausible deniability…or….just plain stupid….lies always catch up with the liars eventually.
      Of course they are, through Turkey.

    • Annie's Mom

      Shortly after that night, as some reporters were investigating, Catherine Herrige of Fox, made a report about the Turkey connection. I can’t find the specific report I remember, but here’s a little bit of info:

      • More on that subject….not looking like a major faux pas?….bet me!! Cleaning up their mess…

        “Stevens’ mission in Benghazi, they will say, was to buy back Stinger missiles from al-Qaeda groups issued to them by the State Department, not by the CIA. Such a mission would usually be a CIA effort, but the intelligence agency had opposed the idea because of the high risk involved in arming “insurgents” with powerful weapons that endanger civilian aircraft.

        Hillary Clinton still wanted to proceed because, in part, as one of the diplomats said, she wanted “to overthrow Gaddafi on the cheap.”

        This left Stevens in the position of having to clean up the scandalous enterprise when it became clear that the “insurgents” actually were al-Qaeda – indeed, in the view of one of the diplomats, the same group that attacked the consulate and ended up killing Stevens.”

        • Annie's Mom

          Not that it means anything, but I’ve believed from the very beginning Stevens was with the CIA…even the news reports at the time mentioned how he entered Libya “in the hold of a ship”…not exactly normal transportation for an ambassador.

  2. Mayor Bloomberg is shocked, just shocked! Uh-huh….Clean up his own backyard and stay out of other people’s.

    [Mayor Bloomberg is privately fuming at the data breach that has imperiled the reputation of his global media company, according to sources.
    “The mayor is very upset,” one source said of the scandal that has been dubbed Bloomberg Spygate.
    A second insider said that Bloomberg made known his feelings to company executives once Goldman Sachs complained that Bloomberg News reporters were monitoring clients’ usage of the $20,000-a-year data terminals leased from Bloomberg LP.]

  3. The Borowitz Report…….

    President Obama used his weekly radio address on Saturday to reassure the American people that he has “played no role whatsoever” in the U.S. government over the past four years.

    “Right now, many of you are angry at the government, and no one is angrier than I am,” he said. “Quite frankly, I am glad that I have had no involvement in such an organization.”

    • Annie's Mom

      Yup, BO has been concentrating all his efforts on trying to regain the House in 2014…he’s going to be lucky to hold on to the Senate.

      • Dems are freaking out….they gave us BO….they don’t deserve to keep their seats…

    While the Fort Hood murderer sits in jail collecting pay of $278,000, our wounded heroes are getting the ax. This is such an outrage:

  6. WaPo/ABC News….not looking good for BO …..

    A majority of Americans believe that the Obama administration is trying to cover up the facts about the Sept. 11 attack on a U.S. installation in Benghazi and the administration’s immediate response, according to a new poll released Tuesday.

    The survey, by ABC News and the Washington Post, found that 55 percent of Americans believe the Obama administration is actively attempting to cover up the facts of the Benghazi attack. By contrast, only a third say the White House is honestly disclosing what it knows.

  7. Uh-oh, there they go again…Obamacare employer sponsored coverage….not what the supporters thought it would be….

    [That’s the funny thing about a giant ball of string like the United States economy. When you decide to yank really hard on a loose end in a system which was essentially stabilized under its own momentum, you just never know what’s going to happen. Unless, of course, you happened to have listened to the millions of people warning you before you yanked on it.]

      Palm to forehead…I am shocked!!

    “A top IRS official in the division that reviews nonprofit groups will invoke the Fifth Amendment and refuse to answer questions before a House committee investigating the agency’s improper screening of conservative nonprofit groups.”

    • YEP, and Lerner will be the Obamacare ‘enforcer’ along with the 16,000 new IRS agents he plans on hiring…..WTF moment if there ever was one…just can’t make this stuff up.

    Gee “I know nothing Barry,” is outraged at his own “secret undermining Americans illegal action,” my, my!

    • Total asshat…not one redeeming quality….

    • Waiting for 2012

      Remember the Bill Keane carton, Family Circus? The little boy (Jeffy???) had an imaginary playmate, “Ida Know” which he blamed every time he got in trouble. I’ve started calling Barry “Ida” (even though that was my dear, departed German grandmother’s name!)

  10. Yes, indeed….call me crazy but, I do believe the administration has gone to far…

    [A crowd packed the sidewalks in front of and across the street from a Cincinnati federal building housing the Internal Revenue Service offices that handled tax-exempt status applications.

    “It’s going to be up to the grass-roots movement to do something,” said Paul Wheeler, dressed in Colonial-era attire with tri-cornered hat and holding a sign saying: “Internal ‘Revenge’ Service Stop.” He said he came from Indianapolis, some 100 miles way, because Cincinnati is “the epicenter of some of the complaints.”

    IRS officials have acknowledged that some conservative groups received inappropriate attention.

    There were also rallies outside IRS offices in Atlanta; Louisville; Chicago; Cherry Hill, N.J.; Denver; Kansas City, Mo.; Helena, Mont.; Philadelphia; Phoenix, and Providence, R.I., among others.]

  13. This is deplorable…..just deplorable….

    [The decision not to seize the men militarily underscores the White House aim to move away from hunting terrorists as enemy combatants and holding them at the military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The preference is toward a process in which most are apprehended and tried by the countries where they are living or arrested by the U.S. with the host country’s cooperation and tried in the U.S. criminal justice system. Using military force to detain the men might also harm fledgling relations with Libya and other post-Arab-Spring governments with whom the U.S. is trying to build partnerships to hunt al-Qaida as the organization expands throughout the region.]

    We are being led to believe that O is a ‘I know nothing’ president. One has to wonder why he is ok with this, and the ‘base’ is willing to celebrate him for his ignorance.
    What he Really has been doing must be truly awful, for him to accept the ‘stupid’ label.
