Sheryll Attkisson and Judge Jeanine Something that Is Right in The Media

 One can readily conclude I am one mad hombre as to the cascade of scandals coming to us courtesy of what might be the most corrupt administration in this country's history. And they would be correct. I am madder as a wet hen as demonstrated by my last post. I'm mad at scum politicians, I'm mad at the Press, I'm mad at the electorate. And I'm really mad at myself. I wonder, have I done enough to help avoid the disaster we are now part of. I and others of my age were brought up to believe that our voice counts, and yet that is not the case as we now well know. How did we as a country let that slip away from us and why didn't we stop it?  Yes, I can and do harp on the so called Free Press for not performing what used to be its perfunctory duties, but what of we as individuals? Have we stood up for our basic ideals? Many haven't, some mention it and a few, a very few actually are brave enough to put it all out there, consequences be damned. I'd like to think I'm one of those people, but I do wonder if I do enough.

 As we all know, the Press has for all practical purposes abrogated their responsibility of being the watchdogs. We know that if one strays from the reservation, they will be punished as evidenced by the A.P. scandal now developing. Yet, there are still some brave souls in the industry who seem to hold true to the ideals of journalism, who try to report the facts and let the chips fall where they may. One I see is Sharyl Attkisson of CBS.We now know that her initial reports on Benghazi were in fact reporting at it's finest. We know that she stood up and refuted the lie told by Hillary in 2008 that she "was under fire" while in Bosnia in 1996. As such, I respect her work yet CBS seems to have chosen to discreetly silence her. For that they should be ashamed! I found the below on Newsbusters and wish to share it. In the first paragraph below she hits the nail on the head as to politicians of all stripes who have forgotten (actually I feel don't give a damn is the proper term here) they are our employees.

"SHARYL ATTKISSON: I think one of the things that working in Washington has aggravated me when trying to get to the truth. This is true across administrations, whether they’re Democrats or Republicans. They seem to have lost sight of the fact that they work for us, not the other way around. And I think we the public are owed a lot of information, collected and gathered on our behalf, such as information floating around about Benghazi. And it’s guarded by the holders and the keepers of the information, as if they somehow own it and hold the privilege over you that you can’t see it". 

Below, she makes a point I have been stressing for years now. This is not aimed at one party. Politics has become corrupt and in many ways resemble many criminal associations. One can make the point that what we have seen for years in many cases resemble to a degree some of the old so called Mafia organizations. It would be hard to argue that when watching what is transpiring these last few weeks.

"For example, Freedom of Information requests that I’ve made. That act has now been used, instead of to facilitate the release of public information, which was its intention – it’s now in my opinion been used to withhold and delay the release of public information. I get pretty much zero response. That didn’t start under the Obama administration. He seems to have perfected it, he and the federal agencies. But this was true also under George Bush. It’s very difficult to get public information, even when you apply the Freedom of Information law."
As to Benghazi, her point below is not only well taken but in fact the answer to her question is vital! Who the hell made the decision to let our people die with out a fight?

"ATTKISSON: Who made the decision not to convene the Counter-terrorism Security group the night of the Benghazi attacks, which we understand is protocol under presidential directive in SPD-46. Why was the protocol not followed? I’ve gotten a partial answer to that from the White House before they quit talking to me altogether. They said they felt it wasn’t needed, that all the proper advisors on counter-terrorism were in the mix."

We need more Sheryll Attkissons if we are to know the truth behind our corrupt out of control government just as we need folks of all stripes to raise their voices against the tyranny (and yes, I mean to use that word exactly as defined) that is coming out of the halls of government (from the local level on up. its all out of control)

Now, its time for me to continue what is quickly becoming my weekly love fest with Judge Jeanine on Fox News. This is the third week in a row she has slam dunked it as to how I feel about the scum that is this administration and it's allies. The woman tells it like it is and I really admire her. Plus, she;s able to vent and show her true feelings without really going ballistic (a trait I will never have for sure). I close with judge Jeanine.

Government Corruptness. When do "We The People" Yell Enough!

One has to sometimes marvel at the sight of politicians and their ilk when they are caught with their pants or panties down. They lie, cover up, mislead or change the subject to cover their asses. Their lapdogs in the press steer as well as the “advisers"  (I refer to the completely asinine defense of the Golfer in Chief by the nimrod Axelrod below as the perfect example) away from a subject or try as always to shift the blame and as they believe their indoctrination of the electorate is such that they will continue to swallow the bullshit.  But then, what should one expect when their sad sack leader himself, after being asked a question about the IRS AFTER AN IRS REPRESENTATIVE ADMITTED WRONGDOING ON THE AGENCY’S PART, starts his answer with “if these events occurred”! 

Moron Alert! Yo Obama! Your agency admitted wrong doing and after the fact you inject the words “if they did it”? What am I drinking here? Is it me or do you really want me to believe this kind of balderdash? You learned it from the news? That could very well be the biggest line of horse shit fed to the public in eons! And you expect respect from people who can do simple things like read, analyze and figure out the truth? You hold your elitist ass as so superior that you and most politicians actually now believe that the public will buy the lies! So what do you do? You double down at Ohio State!

“PRESIDENT OBAMA: Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.”

 You have the nerve to tell us we should in effect reject the truth and follow you in lemming style to the abyss, never questioning the fact that in the end you are nothing but a lying no count! How dare you lecture me as to what I should think and question. Just who in the hell do you think you are? And don’t feed me that shit that you are the President! A real President of this country would be extolling the very virtues you are trying to squash!

Let’s look at a couple of things that are a clear indication of a lost in space sad sack leaderless administration, one that puts their phony baloney power ahead of all else including this country’s guiding principles.

I referred earlier to the asinine statement by David Axelrod below. Basically he is trying to convince the public it’s not poor Barak’s fault. The government is too big and he can’t be responsible for everything. Bullcrap!!!!

“If you look at the Inspector General’s report, apparently some folks down in the bureaucracy, and you know we have a large government, took it upon themselves to shorthand these applications for tax exempt status in a way that was, as I said, idiotic, and also dangerous because of the political implications,” [David] Axelrod said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“Part of being president is there’s so much underneath you because the government is so vast,” he added. “You go through these [controversies] all because of this stuff that is impossible to know if you’re the president or working in the White House, and yet you’re responsible for it and it’s a difficult situation.”
And then we have this. I mentioned earlier how our so called fearless leader used the words “if these things happened” in response to a question about the IRS. Something that had been going on for over a year and he learned about it in the news? Incredible bullcrap!!!!

From Scared Monkeys:

President Barack Obama was asked a simple question yesterday about whether he or anyone at the White House had known about the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups? The response Obama replied with was a contorted, conglomeration of legally approved words, “Clintonian” parsing of words that resembled  more the final 12 times edited Benghazi talking points than a proper answer to the question he was asked.  Obama stated, “I can assure you that I certainly did not know anything about the IG report before the IG report had been leaked through the press.”

And there is the blurb from the Washington Free Beacon bolstering my “what kind of clueless moron is in the White House” premise:

(Washington Free Beacon) Lately the top officials of the executive branch have seemed always to be in another room, on another call. Hillary Clinton says she was not aware of cables warning of lax security in Benghazi. Eric Holder says he is not sure when he recused himself from the investigation into the AP leak, or if he told the White House, or, really, of anything. Obama says he learned about the IRS IG investigation from the news. He says the Benghazi talking points were a matter of dispute between State and CIA, not the White House. A Martian reading the statements of senior officials on subjects of public controversy would conclude that the U.S. government operates at the whims of midlevel career personnel. But why pick on Martians. Chris Matthews concludes the same thing: “The steering wheel doesn’t control the car anymore.”

Now of course the administration would want us to believe that they are not covering up but in fact were too stupid to realize what was going on. After all, unless they saw the news, how could they have known!

This from the USA Today, hardly a bastion of conservatism for sure:

The Internal Revenue Service, apparently determined to get out ahead of an inspector general report critical of its handling of tax exemptions for Tea Party groups, came up with a plan: Lois Lerner, the official responsible for the tax-exempt division, would publicly apologize in response to a question at the American Bar Association conference in Washington.

Details of the now-infamous planted question emerged Friday after acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller admitted the gambit under questioning from members of the House Ways and Means Committee.
After talking to Miller, Lerner called Celia Roady, a Washington tax lawyer whose office is immediately across Pennsylvania Avenue from the IRS headquarters. She also serves on the IRS Advisory Committee on Tax-Exempt and Government Entities.

Roady released this written statement late Friday explaining her role:
"On May 9, I received a call from Lois Lerner, who told me that she wanted to address an issue after her prepared remarks at the ABA Tax Section's Exempt Organizations Committee Meeting, and asked if I would pose a question to her after her remarks. I agreed to do so, and she then gave me the question that I asked at the meeting the next day. We had no discussion thereafter on the topic of the question, nor had we spoken about any of this before I received her call. She did not tell me, and I did not know, how she would answer the question."

And so that's how it happened. Within minutes, the Associated Press reported her remarks with a one-line news alert: "WASHINGTON (AP) — IRS apologizes for inappropriately targeting conservative political groups in 2012 election."

In a conference call with reporters later that day, Lerner emphasized that her apology came in response to a question. 

"I was asked a question at the ABA meeting to give a status update of things that have been in the press" about the agency's treatment of Tea Party groups, she said. .Asked why the IRS chose that day to make an apology that day, she said, "Someone asked me a question today, so I answered it."

And last but not least, let’s not forget our sterling example of an Attorney General, one who is supposed to uphold our laws but for some reason feels the laws do not pertain to him and Fearless Leader: 
“During his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Attorney General Eric Holder said there is nothing in writing verifying he actually recused himself from the Associated Press phone records seizure scandal. 

“We looked,” Holder said when being questioned by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA). “I don’t think there is anything in writing with regard to my recusal.” Lofgren was asking Holder to explain why Deputy Attorney General James Cole had the authority to authorize the subpoena to secretly seize phone records of at least 20 AP reporters and editors over a two month period when federal code requires the Attorney General himself to sign off on such a subpoena.

Holder said that upon his recusal, the power was technically delegated to Cole, who became the acting Attorney General on this investigation.

But later in the hearing, during questioning from Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), Holder said he does not remember when he recused himself. “I’m not sure,” Holder answered when Smith asked him on which date he recused himself. “I think it was the beginning of – I don’t know exactly when.
Holder said the only person he told he told about his recusal was Cole. When Smith asked whether he did that “formally, or in writing,” Holder replied “no.”  

When all is said and done, what do we have here? Stupidity?  Ineptness? Aloofness? Incompetance? A lack of leadership? All of the above? No! This is what is called Incredible Bullshit!!! And we the people have allowed this cancer to fester in our halls of government far too long! The President of the United States lied! The Secretary of State lied! The Attorney General lie!. It goes on and on and we let it happen! What in the hell is wrong with us? Is the loss of our freedoms and rights just another “oh well” moment. I for one will rot in hell before I shut up as Herr Commandant demanded in his Ohio State speech and give up my rights to question a corrupt political entity!

Pieces of the below I used in comments on other sites, but I want to share it to wrap this up.

There is a line in the movie 2010 after which Dr. Floyd is shown a directive from the NSA which goes something like this. “Hal was told to lie by people who find it easy to lie” In so many cases this has been the M.O. of the people in politics, party be damned. Lie about it and if caught feign ignorance or in other words “Lie About it!” And we the people have allowed our government to become the cesspool of corruption we are now witnessing. Not only do those responsible for these lies and actions need to be held accountable but so must an electorate that chooses to ignore the obvious and abrogate their responsibility as voters. I realize I harp on this point a lot, but it is fact. When all is said and done, these things happen because we allow it and just how pathetic is that?

As usual, morons like Axelrod for example put out anything to point blame away from illegalities! The President of the United States, The Secretary of State and the Attorney General lied! And once the IRS “admitted” wrong doing that had been going on for years, the scum bag in the Oval Office says, “If this happened”! Lies are lies and illegality is illegality! No one, not the IRS or the dictator “wanna” be has the right to the information demanded by the IRS! No one has the right to demand that an entity sign a promise to not “protest” outside an abortion clinic as was one of the demands by the IRS to a group requesting tax exempt status! No one has the right to ask the “content of one’s prayers! The IRS broke the law and as I hold most politicians in disdain anyway, one has to assume they acted on orders (maybe “strong suggestions” would be the correct term to use here?) from a higher authority.

I am sick and tired of the left telling me what I am supposed to think and from my read on this the IRS in effect did exactly that as to conservative groups. Of course, one should not be surprised when Homeland Security names Christian and conservative groups as hate groups! Get off it! This is the tip of the ice berg and if the so called journalists who have now supposedly had their ox gored by seeing they can also be targets (I refer to the A.P. scandal below) get their heads out of their asses and do their phony baloney jobs, we could possibly get to the truth of these matters. However, if we’re going to continue to have so much of the public bury their heads in the sand, than all bets are off. 

The first Mayor Daley was ruthless. He went after his enemies with the exact same impunity this clown is doing in D.C. He felt he was untouchable and above the law and the media even back then gave him (and the Chicago Machine) cover for years. The parallels between then and now are staggering. Obama being both a product of what could be the most corrupt political machine in the country (Illinois) and an American Ideal Hating leftist ideologue to boot easily fills that profile.

I say one thing again though. Mayor Daley for all his foibles loved his country. This clown in the White House time and again shows his complete disdain for our heritage, our ideals and our citizens. He is what Kruschev predicted all those years ago in his shoe banging rant at the U.N. “We will bury you! We will bury you from within!” If what is happening now does not wake the public up to their basic responsibilities as voting citizens, then all is indeed lost.

One last thing, the A.P. record scandal. As all know, I have said in the past the co-opted media is front and center in any dictator’s usurpation of power. And once they are deemed to be not needed or possibly a thorn in the side of said dictator, they are expendable. In this case the A.P. published a series of stories based on “leaks” (I’m not even touching the fact that they purposely “leak” crap when they want for their own use) that put the administration in a bad light. Oops! Truth makes one the enemy of any dictator of any ilk. So one should not be the least bit surprised the dogs were set loose against the A.P. 

We are at a crossroads as a nation. Our founding fathers warned of this exact situation yet we the people have chosen to let things go. Well, they went alright, right to the edge of the cliff! We either stop it now or lose everything we hold dear. As someone once said (and I’m paraphrasing here), Liberty and Freedom do not come free! One must work at it and be ever vigilante. Unfortunately the press, those who are in fact supposed to be vigilant are too busy poisoning the minds of all backing their elitist hero. And let’s not even get started on the complete lack of education as to our basic principles, something that is now nonexistent as to our education system. The end result is clear. Either we stop the enemies of this country and its ideals, including the corrupt ingrained political scum of both parties or we perish as the Land of the Free! That is fact! Wake up America1 Your time is short if you don’t pull your heads out of your asses now!

People Died! Obama and Company Lied!

I have to say the events of the last week or so do not surprise me in the least bit. One only had to be paying even the slightest bit of attention to the Fast and Furious scandal to realize this administration along with the scum RINOs were more than willing to stonewall and openly lie so as to protect their sorry asses! It didn’t take a brain surgeon to realize that this sorry horse’s ass we call a President doesn’t give one damn about the public and for sure doesn’t feel the murder of a U.S. citizen amounts to a hill of beans other than to falsely promote his anti 2nd amendment gun confiscation program. As anyone with a brain that is not packed in sawdust knows about this, I’ll leave it at that for the moment.

And of course we now learn the IRS has been targeting any group with a Tea Party/in effect conservative leaning label and just moments ago I now see that they were also targeting Jewish groups! The White house chooses to shrug their shoulders and say it is not their fault. After all, the IRS is run by two Bush appointees! Hip boots can’t keep the shit from creeping into my pants as the public is fed it’s pabulum for the masses consisting of lies and misdirection!  This is not the first time and administration of either party has used the IRS as an attack dog against those who are in disagreement with its policies and it won’t be the last. But don’t think for one moment anyone will convince me they were not ordered by someone in this administration or its party to do this! It might not have been ordered directly by the so called President, but as the titular head of the party and such, the bullshit line of “it’s agencies acting like they always do” is a crass reminder that this President doesn’t have the balls to take the final “the buck stops here” responsibility for anything! 

The two ongoing scandals above are just examples of a government out of control. This of course is the fault of not only the lying scum bags from both parties but in fact an electorate that cares more about Lindsay Lohan or some lurid murder trial or who won American Idol or whatever other asinine thing there is to care about (along with the I am owed everything mentality). And of course let us not forget the propaganda industry known as the MSM that even when the facts are there and open (as in the Benghazi disaster which we will discuss next) chooses to trumpet and in fact carry on the lies of this treasonous President and his sad sack administration! As the hearings unfolded Wednesday it was apparent to anyone who chose to open their minds that this administration from the President down lied to their teeth! Some call it political. Some call it moronic stupidity. Some call it miscommunication. Bullshit! The President of the United States, The Secretary of State, The Press Secretary and more all lied! And apparently the then Secretary of Defense had his head so far up the President’s ass that he also came out with some bullshit line as to “we couldn’t just send our people in there without knowing the situation”. We know they had real time video! We know they were told that the consulate was under attack. And we damned well know the “video” excuse was complete balderdash.

I want to make one point as to the above that I have not really seen any one expound upon much and if I am wrong on this assertion I would ask someone to please show me that. It is my understanding that for hours, one of the hero Seals reported he had the mortar position that was shelling the consulate “lit up” while they were begging for help. I understand that this means he had a laser aimed at the position which in turn a fighter could have homed a missile or whatever in on. It is also my understanding that as the battle lasted for some hours, there was in fact plenty of time to get an F16 over there which could have blown the sorry Muslim Al-Quida whatever they are called bastards directly to hell! Yet or Secretary of Defense said we couldn’t do that?! And what about our Commander in Chief, you know, the one who was informed and went to bed because he had to be up early for a trip to Vegas! Where and when does this shit stop and someone take responsibility? When do the lies stop? Ooops! Forgot! Our government is now made up of lying scum that the public chooses to believe over what was once the basic tenets this country was founded on.

I am embedding another fabulous commentary by Judge Jeanine from Fox News. She lays it out and says it so much better than I can.

Just remember this!
People died! Hillary Lied!
People Died! Panneta Lied!
People died! Susan Rice Lied!
People died! Jay Carney Lied!


 Well after the fact he openly lied to the entire world in front of his anti-American allies at the U.N. Good Grief! How is it that even now the media and defenders of this treasonous bastard can in fact keep defending him with in the face of the facts? If someone can figure that one out it will be a first! The MSM has major scandals in front of it but is choosing to ignore it! Where is the bloodlust that was shown in scandals of the past? Where are the journalists? Where are the patriots? Where is the electorate? Someone has to answer this. American citizens were murdered and this President and others do not give one damn! Well I do and it’s about time this country gets its collective heads out of their asses and does something about it!
