The many, many, many things the Obama Administration “just didn’t know”…

This is gonna take a second to illustrate my point, so please bear with me, okay?

best boss coffee mugPretend for a moment that you’re a CEO of a major corporation. You have all sorts of assistants, VPs and lieutenants whose sole job is to keep you informed. Also, since it’s your responsibility (not to mention how you make money), you spend a great deal of time pouring over numbers, charts, spreadsheets, etc…

And most importantly, you talk with your folks.

How the Media got it 100% wrong… AGAIN.

If you don’t follow Cornell Law Professor William A. Jacobson’s blog, Le•gal In•sur•rec•tion, please consider doing so today.

Jacobson has an alarmingly revealing post (complete with videos), which details the Leftist Media’s pathological insistence on framing every potential crazed killer/shooter/bomber/terrorist as “Right Wing”.

Here’s just a taste:

It started with Bill Sparkman, the part-time Census worker who went missing and then was found dead, setting off an avalanche of mainstream media and left-blogosphere accusations that he was the victim of anti-government “right-wing” hate.  It turned out that Sparkman killed himself, but there were few if any apologies coming.

Hundreds of police descend on suburb after dramatic standoff leaves one bombing suspect dead

We can’t do continual LIVE updates throughout the day, but National Post can. One of our favorite online news sources, they are unusually fair and balanced…

Patriots: “Boston Bruins fans and our National Anthem”

All of us were horrified by the Boston Marathon Bombings, but there was little that we could do here to shed any new light on the situation. The coverage has been wall-to-wall, major news agencies have gotten stories completely wrong, and others have predictably used the situation to push their preconceived agendas.

None of it will do anything to fill-in the holes in people’s hearts, placed there by villains’ bombs. None of it will help a loved one, a city, or a country, heal.

Today’s Media: “Benghazi? Never heard of it…”

Last week was quite a week.

We had:

And finally,

Hey, that Clint Eastwood guy is looking smarter every day.

One story was missing, however. Our valiant and brave National Press has managed, for yet another week, to avoid the biggest story of the year: Libya. Benghazi. An admitted (finally) terrorist attack which resulted in the deaths of 4 Americans, including our Ambassador.

I’m sure they’ll get around to it, eventually.

There have been any number of treatments of this abdication of duty on the part of our self-appointed media ‘truth seekers’. Here are a couple of the better ones.

First up, Charles Krauthammer:

The mystery here is why would you go out and have our ambassador to the U.N. on five channels create a fairy-tale about all of this being an outgrowth of demonstration over a video? The answer is you want to cover up — the answer is you want to cover up the security lapses, intelligence lapses, ignoring of the threat.

And the fact that one way to put it, if you want to use the phrase of Joe Biden, “Bin Laden: dead, …al-Qaeda: alive.”

And also from longtime Democratic pollster Pat Caddell:

Any other president who flew to Las Vegas for a fundraiser hours after the killing of the U.S. ambassador in Libya would have been “crucified,” he said.

But Obama wasn’t.

“It should have been the equivalent, for Barack Obama, of George Bush’s ‘flying over Katrina’ moment,” Caddell said. “But nothing was said at all and nothing will be said.”

An obvious question arises, or at least should. Was there a cover-up? If we had a Republican president—or even a Democratic president not named Obama—the press would be pursuing that possibility with great intensity. And the national news would be focused on efforts of the president and his aides to deflect blame for the eruption of assaults on American embassies in Libya and across the Middle East.

But in Obama’s case, this hasn’t happened.

Just as important as our faltering economy, Federal hyper-regulation, and the devaluing of our currency, THIS is the issue of the day. THIS is the reason that, among all others, this 44-month-long April Fool’s joke of a presidency has to end. If we cannot project enough strength to protect ourselves around the globe, and if our leaders are then craven enough to cover-up, lie, and then lie some more about such failure, we might as well raise the white flag right now and all start learning to speak Farsi.

I seem to vaguely recall the media once pursued such things.

There’s a new ad from Heritage Foundation which encapsulates this, and it needs more eyes. I’d appreciate it if it gets spread to more than just our faithful on this blog.

Take 3 minutes to watch and then just one more minute to pass it to your friends. We are not loved around the world. We’re not respected. We’re not feared in the slightest. Right now, we’re nothing more than a big kid with a $16 trillion-dollar ‘Kick Me’ sign on our back.

If this isn’t addressed by the next administration (and soon), we’re going to get a lot more than just ‘kicked’.


UPDATE: Ed Morrissey over at HotAir.com is talking about this today, as well. Go give it a look.

Hey, “Bush-Lied-People-Died” crowd! Where are you guys NOW?

My, how times change.


The White House has now acknowledged that the events on 9/11/2012 in Benghazi were, indeed, a terrorist attack. This comes on the heels of their insistence that, for two weeks, the attacks were inspired by a “YouTube video”. You will hear only a very few of the reporters (for now) report on the obvious and flagrant lie: the White House immediately suspected terrorism, and it now is certain that they confirmed this as a terrorist act within 24 hours.

Now, do me a lil’ favor, if you please: think back to the Bush years, when the mantra of “Bush Lied, People Died” became as ubiquitous as hearing “Bless you” after a sneeze. This narrative was constant: G. W. Bush had intricately planned and rationalized the Iraq War, misleading our nation & the world into a war-for-oil, and not to prevent Saddam Hussein from using his non-existent WMD’s.

Remember all that? I sure do.

Consider, then, that prelude to the War in Iraq took from September 12th, 2001 to March 19th, 2003. Over a year, with mountains of evidence. And somehow he fooled everyone? For over a year? This man, who throughout his presidency was repeatedly portrayed as being slightly dumber than a bag of hammers, was able to construct history’s most complex prevarication, without the truth leaking out? Code Pink and the Media would then have us believe Bush was, incongruously, the world’s first-ever ‘stupid evil genius‘.

Only Liberal logic could make that claim with a straight face.

And yet, the mantra persisted, and is still accepted as fact today by many in the self-professed ‘Smart Party’.

In contrast, this month is what it looks like when a president actually lies, even if that president is protected by the Media as if he were Charlemagne 2.0.

Because now, when his own Press Secretary says that it is “self-evident” (two weeks later, of course) that this attack was not from a whacked-out Muslim mob spontaneously reacting to an unknown YouTube clip but an actual act of terror, we have the Obama Administration flailing around, jumping from story to story, as each previous lie unravels.

And yes, the word is lie. 

Not a shading of the truth. Not spin. Not a fib. Not a dodge.

A big, fat, ugly, narcissistic, contemptible lie.

And a lie which cost, and will continue to cost, American lives. Coming on the heels of Fast and Furious, this is beyond unconscionable.

It will be all I can do to contain my emotions as I watch our current elected Commander-in-Chief waltz around the countryside, promising Utopian solutions to problems he has created. We keep precious little alcohol in our house at any one time, and I may need to stock up in order to cope.

But after watching the self-serving and pusillanimous way he has allowed these atrocities to occur and then tried to obscure the facts afterward, I can only hope you’ll join me in trying to alert everyone to his treachery prior to election day.

***Shorter version of that last sentence: “help us kick him to the curb”.

Surprise, surprise: “U.S. Officials knew Libya Attacks were work of Al Qaeda”

Wow, who could have guessed this was the case? Other than, well, …everybody?

Courtesy of the Daily Beast:

“U.S. Officials Knew Libya Attacks Were Work of Al Qaeda Affiliates”

The phrase res ipsa loquitur comes to mind: “the thing speaks for itself“.

Within 24 hours of the 9-11 anniversary attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, U.S. intelligence agencies had strong indications al Qaeda–affiliated operatives were behind the attack, and had even pinpointed the location of one of those attackers. Three separate U.S. intelligence officials who spoke to The Daily Beast said the early information was enough to show that the attack was planned and the work of al Qaeda affiliates operating in Eastern Libya.

Nonetheless, it took until late last week for the White House and the administration to formally acknowledge that the Benghazi assault was a terrorist attack. On Sunday, Obama adviser Robert Gibbs explained the evolving narrative as a function of new information coming in quickly on the attacks. “We learned more information every single day about what happened,” Gibbs said on Fox News. “Nobody wants to get to the bottom of this faster than we do.”

I’d say this is despicable, but that word just doesn’t quite encompass the enmity I’m feeling towards these traitorous cretins.

And just to review: it was a full FIVE days later, or four days AFTER they knew this was the case, that the Obama Administration trotted out UN Ambassador Susan Rice to make the rounds on the Sunday talk shows and deliberately lie to the American people.

Yes, lie. There is no other word for it. 

THIS is your current administration, folks.

Anyone want them around for four more years? You must truly hate our country if you do.
