Obama playbook – when in doubt say it is all phony scandals

As the old saying goes, “the truth will out,” and in the case of the multiple scandals that have been dogging the Obama Administration practically from the beginning, it appears those sage words are starting to blow up in the talking heads’ faces. Those voices include individuals in the media that have chosen to be little more than Obama’s private collection of sycophants, and of course, the members of the administration that have been tap-dancing furiously around the facts in front of Congress and the public. The latest issue has been the outrageous claim by White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, that all the current “problems,” particularly Benghazi, are “phony scandals.” Of course that was met with severe push-back by conservative politicians and media, expressing severe disapproval of even the concept of relegating the deaths of four American embassy personnel to the realm of “phony” anything.

It is coming up on 11 months since the attack in Libya, and the hearings are still being convened to get to the bottom of the issue. There is still one survivor of the attack in the hospital, recovering from his injuries. The rumors about the administration forcing survivors in general to remain silent about what they witnessed that night have been running around the Hill and the nation for weeks. Because the truth has been denied, the inevitable result is that the truth is sneaking its way out. As for the Obama Administration, it can’t be pleasing to them that it has come from none other than CNN – which Fox News had no problem pointing out. As for the ones that remain loyal to the president, and keep pushing his propaganda? Well, look no further than Variety to see the fate for that tactic – even the experts in the entertainment industry are admitting that being the mouthpiece for the administration isn’t a good formula for a news station that would like to have even just decent ratings.

So, all this means is that it makes sense to keep pushing for the truth. If you’re looking for a quick way to point out to the masses that the scandals really aren’t phony – and at least enumerate them quickly with pretty pictures for those that are a bit dense – there’s a short video for that:

Why Attorney General Eric Holder is the worst in U.S. History

holder
Eric “fast and furious” Holder’s legacy of corruption, power, influence, and greed will be a tough act for any future Attorney General to follow. He is the only Attorney General in our nation’s history to facilitate the pardon of a convicted felon and fugitive. Like Barack Obama, he is a privileged minority with a chip on his shoulder and a fellow supporter of Black Liberation Theology.

But that’s not even the worst of it.

Here are the reasons why our current Attorney General is the worst in no particular order:

He represented Washington, DC in DC versus Heller joining then Attorney General Janet Reno in an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to uphold the DC hand gun ban. In his argument he actually said, “The Second Amendment does not protect an individual’s right to keep and bear arms for purposes unrelated to a state’s operation of a well regulated militia.” (Sorry Mr. Holder, but the Second Amendment is not negotiable or left to interpretation.)

He advocated for and justified the use of drones to kill US citizens even on US soil. On March 5, 2013 Eric Holder said this, “Drone strikes against American citizens on US soil are legal. After this outrageous statement the Attorney General started to backtrack from these comments saying, “Using lethal force against American citizens on US soil was highly unlikely. We hope no President will ever be faced with that decision. However if there was an imminent threat such as a domestic terror attack on the country similar to Pearl Harbor or 9-11 it is conceivable that the use of an unmanned aircraft could be used as a viable option. (Mr. Holder, the fact that you believe this should make every American fearful of you, this Administration, and our government.)

He Initially was a proponent of trying 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a New York City courtroom rather than at a military tribunal. (Sorry, Mr. Holder but this animal who maliciously murdered almost three thousand of your fellow Americans doesn’t deserve to have some Columbia leftist lawyer like yourself representing him, let alone in New York City at the scene of the crime.)

He blocked legislation in Texas and other states that called for voters to show picture ID in order to curb illegal voting. His ridiculous reason was, “It would disproportionately affect minority voters from the electoral process.” (No Mr. Holder it would stop voter fraud which you obviously support and no it would not be a poll tax either as most of the legislation called for cost free ID cards.)

He refused to prosecute and even dropped the charges against the New Black Panther Party; who on Election Day in 2008 stood outside polling stations dressed in paramilitary uniforms, carrying nightsticks and intimidated voters. His reason: He has stated on many occasions that he is unwilling to prosecute minorities for civil rights violations. “I think it does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for my people.” (Mr. Holder, not only is this a blatant disregard for the rule of law, but more importantly it shows what a racist anti-white bigot you are as you selectively disenfranchise voters you deem unworthy of such.)

He filed a law suit against the state of Arizona over their anti illegal immigration bill, SB 1070 without even reading it first. He said the bill might lead to “racial profiling”. (Mr. Holder, SB 1070 does not racially profile anyone. Maybe if you would’ve read it first you would’ve known that.)

In February 2011, he announced that the Department of Justice would no longer defend cases involving the Defense of Marriage Act in court. He deemed DOMA was unconstitutional. (Wrong again Mr. Holder, where in the Constitution does it say that Traditional Marriage is unconstitutional, but Gay Marriage is constitutional? I think your reason is like yourself, a little light in the loafers.)

He was found in contempt of Congress by the House Oversight Committee for lying, misleading, and stonewalling the investigation by withholding information concerning the gun running scandal Operation Fast and Furious. (Mr Holder, I hope you can sleep at night with the blood of Border Agent Brian Terry on your hands as well as numerous others who died by the guns you provided to Mexican Drug Cartels.)

His most recent scandal is unfolding as I write this. His Justice Department has acquired illegal phone records from many reporters and editors at the left leaning Associated Press. This was in retaliation to a story the Associated Press ran about a Covert Mission in Yemen that foiled the plot of the so called “underwear” bomber.

The Obama Administration lied to the American people when they said publicly that they had no imminent or credible threat of a coming terrorist attack that was to coincide with the anniversary of Osama Bin Laden’s death. This was not true and the Associated Press knew they were not telling the truth. In fact, the Administration pleaded with the Associated Press not to run the story because it was in an Election year.

As soon as the Associated Press ran the story the Administration illegally seized over two months of phone records. (Mr. Holder, your disgusting intimidation tactics make you unfit to hold the position in our government that you do. I can only hope and pray that you, your boss, and all of his Socialist, Marxist, cohorts eventually go down with the ship. If the Republicans had any testicular fortitude you would all be wearing black and white stripes in Leavenworth.)

The Constitution says we need to keep America safe from all enemies both foreign and domestic. Throughout our history we have fought foreign enemies in far away lands but now we have an enemy within our own borders and inside our government.

America is the last great hope on earth; without our compassion and guidance the world would be a very dark and dismal place. America has been the leader in prosperity, freedom, liberty, and self governance since its founding. The Obama Administration is like a cancer and its supporters are the carriers of the disease known as liberalism. If we don’t stop them soon they will destroy what little we have left in regard to liberty and freedom. How do you destroy the greatest, most powerful country on earth? Just ask the Obama Administration and Eric Holder; they seem to have all the answers.

Will Obama Run In 2012?

A Strategy For Not Running?

Dick Morris, former President Bill Clinton political advisor, said on “The Sean Hannity Show” on September 28, 2011, said that President Barack Obama may not run for president in 2012, saying that he may agree to requests from the Democrat leadership in Congress to step aside. A withdrawal by Obama would allow Democrats to recover some of their popularity that Obama and his policies cost them in the 2010 election. It would also allow Obama to present himself as above the partisan fights in Congress, claiming the reason he’s not running for reelection is to solve persistent economic recession and high unemployment problems. This strategy will help Democrats portray Republicans as stubborn and non-compromising, uninterested in solving the nation’s problems.

Said Morris, “I asked a top Democratic strategist the other day and he thought that it was possible that, in January, Harry Reid comes to Obama and says, ‘Look you cost us control of the House last year, you’re going to cost us control of the Senate this year. For the good of the party you have to step aside’.”

It is unlikely that Obama will decide not to run in 2012. There are few Americans who see themselves as larger than the American presidency, but Obama is one of them. In 2008, Obama showed little interest in the down-and-dirty aspects of political campaigning. Governing has been much more difficult for him than he thought it would. He considers himself to be a “citizen of the world.” He has dismissed the idea of American exceptionalism.

The Democrats’ Obama Problem

Democrats are desperate to find a way to ease Barack Obama out of running for reelection. How do you convince a failed narcissist to bow out so adults can take back the party? And how do you keep the most loyal voting bloc, blacks, within the party, while pushing aside the first black president? Former First Lady Hillary Clinton, a loyal Democrat, has remained silent in public over Obama’s missteps. Oregon Rep. Peter DeFazio said that more and more Democrats believe that Obama needs to be challenged. “It’s a common refrain, and it’s certainly common in my district among Democrats,” he said. “They want the guy back that they voted for.”

Former Clinton adviser James Carville called for Obama to ‘wake up’ and ‘panic.’ Carville called on Obama to clean house, fire staff that’s advising him, and return to Democractic principles that got him elected. “This is what I would say to President Barack Obama: The time has come to demand a plan of action that requires a complete change from the direction you are headed.” Carville’s advice: “Fire somebody. No – fire a lot of people.”

Will Scandels Keep Him From Running?

Solyndra, the “green energy” company failure, is an example of how Democrats can keep Obama off the 2012 ticket. Further, Lightsquared and Fast and Furious are scandals that will not go away. There are at least four investigations on the legal, political, and financial ties between the Obama administration and Solyndra. It is likely that Solyndra contains enough incriminating information for Congress to force Obama from office. There are, potentially, other Solyndras out there.

Democrats would like to get rid of Obama. A criminal investigation will provide the opportunity for a divorce. Appearing to be tough in an investigation would distance Democrats from Obama. If they see an opportunity to take him out, they may go for it.

Will Polls Keep Him From Running?

A Gallup poll says the percentage of Americans who approve of the way President Barack Obama is handling his job as president has dropped back to the 39%, just one percentage point above his all-time low of 38%. Over the three-day period from September to 26 to 28, 2011, Obama’s approval averaged only 39 percent. Pronouncements about not looking at polls and concentrating on getting things done are standard fare from poll-driven, election-obsessed politicians.

But that’s just my opinion.
