In the movie “Dave”, there is a point in which Dave, the fake President wants to promote his job’s plan, but in effect no one will listen due to a scandal within the administration. Now Dave wasn’t part of this scandal, but as he is pretending to be the President, he is ensnared by it, the media and adversaries latch unto it and in effect a goes plan goes by the wayside as scandal is all that matters. Thus was the premise of a movie. And thus I am reminded of the realities of today.
We see now a President in real life who is now “focused on” the dismal job problem here in the U.S. Let’s forget the question of “where the hell have you been the last 32 months on this you blithering idiot?” and look at another facet of this. As I am rather cynical at best when it comes to this President and his true intentions, can one make the supposition that the “Jobs Program” is just a way to turn attention away from the various scandals that this administration is now being shown as being involved in? And if so, why hasn’t the MSM on the whole picked up on this (mind you, there are some, even an ABC reporter surprisingly enough who have) raced into scandal mania nirvana? Unlike “Dave” where the scandal stole the attention as would normally be the case, we have the Jobs Bill, hopefully in the view of the lefties, taking attention away from the scandals! And what scandals they really truly are!
Listening to the President this morning, one as usual only heard the same tired rhetoric and pandering to his base, nothing more, nothing less! Personally, I want to point out the scandals because in his Class warfare attack this morning, we might have the biggest scandal of all. A President who in fact is destroying the very foundation of this country’s economy!
Up front we have the “Green Industry” scandal, highlighted by Solyndra Inc. and other Green companies” as is usual, we have the cover up in which administration officials deny any involvement with the rewarding of stimulus funds, etc to these companies>. Oops! Here comes a bankruptcy and almost ½ billion dollars lost! But “We know nothing!” While I’m not going to go crazy citing things, here are two or three instances.
“Emails released Thursday night show the Obama administration privately worried about the effect of a default by Solyndra Inc. on the president’s re-election campaign.
“The optics of a Solyndra default will be bad,” an official from the Office of Management and Budget wrote in a Jan. 31 email to a senior OMB official. “The timing will likely coincide with the 2012 campaign season heating up.”
Gotta love this next one! “The four-star Air Force general who oversees U.S. Space Command walked into a highly secured room on Capitol Hill a week ago to give a classified briefing to lawmakers and staff, and dropped a surprise. Pressed by members, Gen. William Shelton said the White House tried to pressure him to change his testimony to make it more favorable to a company tied to a large Democratic donor.”
And of course we even get a Rom sighting here! Convenient lack of memory here: Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel says that he doesn’t recall the Obama administration’s loan to Solyndra, the bankrupt solar panel manufacturer that received more than $500 million in taxpayer loans and is now under investigation.
Emanuel, the mayor of Chicago, told local radio station WLS that he was not going to talk about the company.
“I don’t actually remember that or know about it. So, what I’m dealing is with what I’m dealing with here today,” Emanuel told a reporter.
More from the Daily Caller:
E-mail communications from the White House obtained by the House Energy and Commerce Committee point to more involvement in the deal than perhaps Emanuel would care to remember.
The vice president was scheduled to announce the closure of the Solyndra deal on Sept. 4, and several e-mails show pressure from the White House to approve the loan.
In one e-mail, an assistant to Emanuel wrote on Aug. 31, 2009 to the Office of Management and Budget about the administration’s upcoming announcement on Solyndra and asked whether “there is anything we can help speed along on OMB side.”
Suffice it to say anyone can follow this easily and it is a scandal of major proportions, at least to those who aren’t lapping up Obama’s favor! Still, this pales in some ways compared to the “fast and Furious” gun running scandal! Here we have the Attorney General as well as the white House not only denying but in fact stonewalling an investigation of something that has resulted in numerous deaths including a border agent! Holder denied knowledge of this even after a speech he had made citing the very program a year before was played to the public! Gets better though!
From the LA Times:
Newly obtained emails show that the White House was better informed about a failed gun-tracking operation on the border with Mexico than was previously known.
Three White House national security officials were given some details about the operation, dubbed Fast and Furious. The operation allowed firearms to be illegally purchased, with the goal of tracking them to Mexican drug cartels. But the effort went out of control after agents lost track of many of the weapons.
The supervisor of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives operation in Phoenix specifically mentioned Fast and Furious in at least one email to a White House national security official, and two other White House colleagues were briefed on reports from the supervisor, according to White House emails and a senior administration official.
“ ATF Director: Holder Obstructing ‘Fast and Furious’ Probe”
"If his account is accurate, then ATF leadership appears to have been effectively muzzled while the DOJ sent over false denials and buried its head in the sand," Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said in a letter Tuesday to Attorney General Eric Holder. "That approach distorted the truth and obstructed our investigation."
The cover up is afoot, and quite familiar: Fast and Furious Follows Watergate Template”
Again, I’ve discussed this before and the examples of the lies and cover up are there for all to see! As stated earlier, people died because of these actions and the Attorney General as well as the PResdient, the men sworn to uphold the law of the land are in fact fighting every way they can to cover up their actions. Pure and simple fact here kids!
Actually, the two examples cited above in many ways are being cast as “politics as usual” and of course only touched by the propaganda industry known as the MSM! Beyond a doubt, the actions by the administration are in my view are of a criminal and for that matter Anti-American nature and should be dealt with harshly, something that as we now well know will never be the case when it is an ultra anti-American ideal administration in charge! But quite honestly, these scandals are small potatoes compared to the worse scandal of them all.
Today, once again, the President resorted to class warfare in his Jobs speech! For those with an ounce of common sense however, it is not only the class warfare aspect that is troubling enough, but in fact it is the overt racism being shown by the Democrats and other lefties that is the biggest scandal of all! This administration, the MSM and all others involved are inciting racial hatred the like of which many cannot even imagine! Examples:
“The interesting question is: What is it about this president that has stripped away the veneer of respect that normally accompanies the Office of the President? Why do Republicans think this president is unpresidential and should dare to request this kind of thing? It strikes me that it could be the economic times, it could be that he won so big in 2008 or it could be, let’s face it, the color of his skin. This is an extraordinary reaction to a normal sequence of events,” MSNBC contributor Richard Wolffe said on “The Last Word.”
REP. ANDRE CARSON, (D), INDIANA: Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens. (audience members reply, "Yes!") Some of them in Congress right now of this Tea Party would love to see you and me- I'm sorry, Tamron- hanging on a tree. (audience members reply, "Yes!") Some of them right now in Congress are comfortable with where we were 50 and 60 years ago.
“I’m not afraid of anybody,” said Waters. “This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned, the ‘tea party’ can go straight to hell.“
Of course, can’t not have something from our boy Jesse: “The tea party opposing Obama, Jackson said, should be called the “Fort Sumter Tea Party that sought to maintain states’ rights and slavery.”
And just today we have this drivel from the Congressional Black Caucus! Via The Political Pistachio:
“Unhappy members of the Congressional Black Caucus “probably would be marching on the White House” if Obama were not president, according to CBC Chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.).
"If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House," Cleaver told “The Miami Herald” in comments published Sunday. "There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president."
Cleaver acknowledged that some of the things members of his caucus say might not be in the best interests of the “aggressive agenda” he said he is seeking to develop as chairman.
“Maxine Waters represents central Los Angeles first and she has to represent her constituents first and she’s going to say things in order to represent them,” he said.”
This is a scandal that is eroding every bit of progress made in the last century or more! From the same Political Pistachio post we have the following!
"In selecting men for office, let principle be your guide. Regard not the particular sect or denomination of the candidate -- look to his character..." -- Noah Webster, Letters to a Young Gentleman Commencing His Education, 1789
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. -- Martin Luther King, I have a Dream, 1963
Now, let’s look closely at the facts. We have the CBC now openly avowing their stance as to open racist hate towards the whites! We have seen the Justice Department at the command of AG Holder refuse to prosecute the New Black Panther hate movement when it came to PROVEN racist voter intimidation! We have members of this administration. Congress, the MSM and others yelling ”Racist” whenever one says the words Illegal Alien”! We have anyone who disagrees with this President and his Anti-American Soviet Style Socialist policies and plan for income redistribution branded as Racist! We have what is called Flash Mobs, black mobs attacking White people, documented and proven to have occurred! The list goes on and on. And what is the biggest scandal here? The absolute silence form our President, the Attorney General and the MSM as to the open Racism that is in fact being ok’d by the upper levels of power, chief among these, the President and his Attorney General! Silence! Not a word! And why not? Easy. He’d piss off his voting base. The hell with the good of the country!
Jobs? The economy? Terror? As important at these things are, they are all being used by this administration to cover up their real scandals! The silence as to the overt Racism being put forward by his party and the MSM speaks volumes to the cancer that is this administration! It is an indictment of a President and his lackeys as to a complete dereliction of duty as it relates to the racial harmony of this nation! This President, with his silence on the overt racism being espoused by those who support him is a traitor to his job and his country. Furthermore he is an insult to the memory of people like MLK ! Silence in this case is not golden! Silence in this case appears to be a core hatred for the very principles we as a people hope to live under! And that in itself is a scandal for the ages!!
