Some of the staunchest pro-Obama members of the liberal media were just seen entering the West Wing as a group today to no doubt receive their marching orders on how best to protect the Obama White House…

(Valerie Jarrett has no doubt given her most trusted media figures very clear marching orders – PROTECT US AT ALL COST)

    • Doubtless the spread of the ordure is about to begin. Of what do I speak? The blackmailable material of the blackmailable government officials. They’ll be trying to put cracks in the inquiries -

      This is likely a distribution meeting, as well as a Q&A: “Who do we take down?” and “Who do we take down first?” are the WH questions. This applies to journalists as well as to elected officials – several are on the hook and have been unusually silent of late, waiting to see if it’s safe to speak up.

      This can work in reverse. Blackmail is a felony. A lot of people aren’t going to risk it when things are going downhill so fast.

    • In addition to the administration’s hatred of all things private – which is why they have attempted to nationalize everything from GM to participating in schemes with Solyndra, the administratino believes that the press doesn’t do things as well as the government.

      The press finds things that the government isn’t capable of discovering, and these Leftists hate the idea that for-profit organizations can outdo them. That’s why they hold on so tenaciously to NPR.

      The press has basically, without knowing it, ceded all information-gathering to this government. They feed it to the government as soon as they get it in many cases – becoming snitches instead of reporters. That is, in part, because the big papers are going under. Money has been exchanged in order to keep them open, with the papers’ snitches (who used to be reporters) feeding information directly to the Whitehouse. Obviously, this hasn’t happened in every news organization – just ABC, CBS, NBC and the New York Times and LA Times and others. (Warren Buffet bought up a lot of papers, too.)

      This is why the administration hates Fox news so much: NFS.
      This is why most people who give a damn about the news have turned to other outlets – the alternative media. Which is why Obama wants to control that, too.

      When this administration falls, news organizations will be scrambling to find cover – if Congress is willing to dig. It’ll take some old-timers in the press who hate seeing the wholesale whoring of their profession to open this up – think Watergate X 100, with the papers being as bad as any of the conspirators.

      The group who went to the Whitehouse have made a grave error. They’d better rethink what they’re planning, or there’ll be a problem for them that they have never encountered: once they become part and parcel of a government conspiracy, they have no Constitutional cover for their activities.

      Fair warning, muthufkers.

      • Barry, ValJar & Co. are typical, crazed, would-be dictators (or sociopaths?).

        From Charles Hughes Smkth’s OfTwoMinds blog, Mary 20th:

        “…another danger of centralization:sociopaths/psychopaths excel in organizations that centralize power, and their ability to flatter, browbeat and manipulate others greases their climb to the top.

        “In effect, centralization is tailor-made for sociopaths gaining power. Sociopaths seek power over others, and centralization gives them the perfect avenue to control over millions or even entire nations.

        “Even worse (from the view of non-sociopaths), their perverse abilities are tailor-made for excelling in office and national politics via ruthless elimination of rivals and enemies and grandiose appeals to national greatness, ideological purity, etc….

        ” Centralization has another dark side: those ensconced in highly concentrated centers of power (for example, The White House) are in another world, and they find it increasingly easy to become isolated from the larger context and to slip into reliance on sycophants, toadies (i.e. budding secondary sociopaths) and “experts” (i.e. apparatchiks and factotums) who are equally influenced by the intense “high” of concentrated power/wealth.

        “Increasingly out of touch with those outside the circle of power, those within the circle slide into a belief in the superiority of their knowledge, skills and awareness–the very definition of sociopathology.

        “Even worse (if that is possible), the incestuous nature of the tight circle of power breeds a uniformity of opinion and ideology that creates a feedback loop that marginalizes dissenters and those with open minds. Dissenters are soon dismissed–”not a team player”– or trotted out for PR purposes, i.e. as evidence the administration maintains ties to the outside world.

        “Those few dissenters who resist the siren song of power soon face a choice: either quietly quit “to pursue other opportunities” (the easy way out) or quit in a blast of public refutation of the administration’s policies.

        “Public dissenters are quickly crucified by those in power, and knowing this fate awaits any dissenter places a powerful disincentive on “going public” about the sociopathology of the inner circle of power.”

        The whole article is well worth reading.

    • Look for all of them to double down on the excuses and spread disinformation. Then let the personal attacks begin.

      It’s a redux of their campaign against Romney so you’d better believe that it’s going to get down and dirty.

      They have everything to lose so it’s going to be “all in”.

      • bill o'rights
      • Yup.

        Problem is…they may have already lost the hearts and minds.

        Not sure yet, but I have to wonder if the thinking lefties are second-guessing their positions on the ‘Obama is a Marxist’ notion.

    • The government is looking into the names and numbers of news sources because it’s planning to run the news media by itself. Newsreporters – now becoming snitches – will be replaced by more loyal types. Once they have your lists…you’re finished with a capital EFF.

      There’s another name for when the news is run by government: Totalitarianism.
      Communism. Fascism.

      Anyone remember when it was suggested several years back – somewhat offhandedly, but from a variety of sources – that the government should help failing papers and other forms of media? The paper trail would be hard to follow – perhaps – but with nouveau owners of media corporations like Warren Buffett? Money is appearing in odd places these days – and papers aren’t what one would call a sound investment. Not for shrewd investors…

      Warren – (Dad, can I call you that, since we share the exact same haplogroups?) – you might want to consider changing sides. After all, your claim that your secretary pays about the same tax rate as you do is only because you’re referring to your salary – which is probably almost the same as hers. You aren’t as clever as you think. And it is highly suspecicious that you’ve suddenly developed a taste for ink. (Wanna Google me up, dude – er, DAD?) Or perhaps it’s happenstance that we share the same bends in the genetic road. Anyway…

      The collaboration of the government and media is troubling, at best. When major television news executives’ children work in the Obama Whitehouse, some on Benghazi, when the press sends out goons to shill for Hillary (ABC,) there is a stench that rivals a hooker bathing in a Chinese aquaculture pond. (Is that gross enough for you?) There is no truth in Pravda, and there is no Pravda in truth, as it is said.

      And now that you’ve whored yourselves out – some of you – while others have already begun to repent, isn’t it interesting that the government is now looking to steal your personal sources? You won’t be in business for very long – they’re stealing your trade secrets!

      Take a shower, media. Come clean. They’re busy replacing you with their own.

    • Bill o’rights,
      Thank you, but…I have to be honest: I’m somewhat embarrased, because I’m without pedigree – literally and figuratively. Like Barry, of unknown paternity; like Liz Warren, with rumors of ancestry – and I’m interested in lineages because I have half of one. The self-aggrandizing and dishonest Barry and Liz prefer to live in their own self-constructed fantasies. Warren could easily prove/disprove her ancestral claims, but she’s too cheap to spend the $99 it would take. She, like Barry, prefers delusion over reality.

      I prefer the truth even if it smacks me in the face or takes me to the woodshed – remember Herod, whose brains were eaten by worms for accepting praise that wasn’t his to accept, and Nebuchadnezzar’s punishment for self-glorification. The truth is, the Holy Spirit leads me – a (seriously) minitiarized version of Daniel. Without Him, I have to admit that I’m nothing.

      • bill o'rights
      • Judging by your posts you, of all people should hardly be embarrassed.

        At 42, I’m still working through the ‘make your father proud’ delusion for a man who I love, but who was rarely there and whose heart is still as mysterious as a secret agent’s.

        Honestly, pedigree means nothing.

        If Obungo was a decent human being, we wouldn’t cite pedigree at all. But in all truth, your experience is the exception to the rule which makes your experience particularly laudible.

        My own quest for truth is the result of never fitting in the box–a world whose rules I cannot adapt to because the physics don’t work for me. After a while, one realizes the inherent fallacies and has to develop different methods in order to adapt.

        In short, I am the POSTER BOY for adults with ADHD. And, unlike so many people who are incorrectly diagnosed with it, there has never been any cause for debate, in my case.

    • “President Obama didn’t make any phone calls the night of the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, the White House said in a letter to Congress released Thursday.

      “During the entire attack, the president of the United States never picked up the phone to put the weight of his office in the mix,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, who had held up Mr. Obama’s defense secretary nominee to force the information to be released.

      Mr. Graham said that if Mr. Obama had picked up the phone, at least two of the Americans killed in the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi might still be alive because he might have been able to push U.S. aid to get to the scene faster.

      The White House has said Mr. Obama was kept up to date on the attack by his staff, though after being alerted to the attack in a pre-scheduled afternoon meeting he never spoke again with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin E. Dempsey or then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

      Mr. Panetta told Congress last week that he knew immediately the attacks were a terrorist assault, though the White House downplayed that notion in the first five days after the attack.

      Republican senators said they will still push for more information on who changed the talking points given to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, who went on the Sunday talk shows after the attacks and blamed protests against an anti-Islam video.

      Mr. Graham said he will block the president’s nominee to head the CIA until he hears more details about what Mr. Obama was doing. Continue reading via The Washington Times…”

    • I suspect b.o. (stinks) was watching a live drone feed of the attacks in private.
      Either that or perhaps some STRANGE CHANTTING was heard echoing through the halls of the WH…

    • Bill, like many with ADHD, you think well beyond the prescribed lines and your ctitical thinking skills are well honed. I have a theory, unproved, that many of those who first caught on to the Obamunnist are CofAlcaholucs and/or ADHD, as they both have a particularly well honed radar and can assimilate fact patterns rapidly as nonlinear , out-of-the-box thinkers.
      Regardless, you and VTX have both been invaluable.

      As to the blocking of Brennan…finally…
      … And as to LameCherry’s assertions …repulsive, repugnant and entirely possible.

    • Barry Soetoro the Moslem
    • As I was brushing my teeth, I just realized that 300 MILLION Americans are watching this IRS freakshow.

      The IRS used to have the reputation of being “tough but official.”

      By the hour, that IRS reputation is changing into “takes half your money every year, then uses it to persecute you depending on your religious/political beliefs.”

      I’m not sure how much longer Americans are willing to sacrifice 1/2 their income to pay for the welfare class, illegal alien class, AND to pay for their own persecution at the hands of Moslem Communists who hate them.

    • VTX
    • Barry Soetoro the Moslem,
      You got that right. They also asked orgnizations that donate to Israel about their viewpoints – whether or not their views were “aligned” with the administration’s. This isn’t exactly old news – I’d read about long before the fake election was held.

      You might consider that this is (or was)- (or still is) a prelude to the declaration of Israel as an enemy state, on a par with Cuba. Eventually they’d have put a freeze on all assets of Israel in the US – that was probably 2 years or less away. The divestiture effort spurred by colleges and universities and the Council of Churches had to happen first.

      Remember Soros’ role with the Nazis? To identify Jewish homes and properties?

      WND EXCLUSIVE
      SEE WHAT WAS REALLY TRANSPIRING INSIDE DOOMED COMPOUND
      Is this why U.S. was attacked in Benghazi?

      AARON KLEIN

      TEL AVIV – In a largely unnoticed speech to a think tank seven months before the Benghazi attack, a top State Department official described an unprecedented multi-million-dollar U.S. effort to secure anti-aircraft weapons in Libya after the fall of Muammar Gadhafi’s regime.

      The official, Andrew J. Shapiro, assistant secretary of state for the Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, explained how U.S. experts were fully coordinating the collection efforts with the Libyan opposition.

      He said the efforts were taking place in Benghazi, where a leading U.S. expert was deployed.

      Shapiro conceded that the Western-backed rebels did not want to give up the weapons, particularly Man-Portable-Air-Defense-Systems, or MANPADS, which were the focus of the weapons collection efforts.

      The information may shed light on why the U.S. special mission in Benghazi was attacked Sept. 11, 2012.

      According to informed Middle Eastern security officials speaking to WND, the Benghazi mission was a planning headquarters for coordinating aid, including weapons distribution, to the jihadist-led rebels.

      After the fall of Gadhafi, the arming efforts shifted focus to aiding the insurgency targeting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

      Two weeks after the Benghazi attack, WND broke the story that murdered U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens himself played a central role in arming rebels and recruiting jihadists to fight Assad’s regime in Syria, according to Egyptian security officials.
      In November 2012, Middle Eastern security sources further described both the U.S. mission and nearby CIA annex in Benghazi as the main intelligence and planning center for U.S. aid to the rebels that was being coordinated with Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
      Many rebel fighters are openly members of terrorist organizations, including al-Qaida.
      Speaking to WND yesterday, Middle Eastern security officials further stated that after Gadhafi’s downfall, Stevens was heavily involved in the State Department effort to collect weapons from the Libyan rebels. The weapons were then transferred in part to the rebels fighting in Syria, the officials stated.

      The arming efforts are ongoing. WND broke the story that the U.S. just last month aided in the transfer of shoulder-launched missiles to the Syrian rebels, according to informed Middle Eastern security officials.

      Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., last March disclosed in an interview with Fox News that Stevens was in Benghazi to keep weapons caches, particularly MANPADs, from falling into the hands of terrorists.

      Fox News host Bret Baier asked Graham why Stevens was in the Benghazi mission amid the many known security threats to the facility.

      Graham replied, “Because that’s where the action was regarding the rising Islamic extremists who were trying to get their hands on weapons that are flowing freely in Libya.”

      The senator stated, “We were desperately trying to control the anti-aircraft missiles, the man pads that were all over Libya, that are now all over the Mideast.”

      ‘Biggest MANPADS collection effort in U.S. history’

      Now Shapiro’s largely unnoticed remarks Feb. 2, 2012, may shed further light on the activities taking place inside the attacked Benghazi facility.

      Of note is that the U.S. facility itself was protected by the February 17 Brigades, which is part of the al-Qaida-allied Ansar Al-Sharia group. That group also was in possession of significant quantities of MANPADs and was reluctant to give them up, Middle Eastern security officials told WND.

      In his speech seven months before the Benghazi attack, Shapiro stated that “currently in Libya we are engaged in the most extensive effort to combat the proliferation of MANPADS in U.S. history.”

      Shapiro was addressing a forum at the Stimson Center, a non-profit think tank that describes itself as seeking “pragmatic solutions for some of the most important peace and security challenges around the world.”

      Shapiro explained Libya had “accumulated the largest stockpile of MANPADS of any non-MANPADS producing country in the world.”

      Shapiro related how then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton committed to providing $40 million dollars to assist Libya’s efforts to secure and recover its weapons stockpiles.

      Of that funding, $3 million went to unspecified nongovernmental organizations who specialize in conventional weapons destruction and stockpile security.

      Inside Benghazi facility

      The NGOs and a U.S. team coordinated all efforts with Libya’s Transitional National Council, or TNC, said Shapiro. The U.S. team was led by Mark Adams, a State Department expert from the MANPADS Task Force.

      Tellingly, Shapiro stated Adams was deployed in August 2011, not to Tripoli where the U.S. maintained an embassy, but to Benghazi.

      The only U.S. diplomatic presence in Benghazi consisted of the CIA annex and nearby facility that were the targets of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack.

      Shapiro expounded on the coordination with the TNC.

      “A fact often overlooked in our response to events in Libya, is that – unlike in Iraq and Afghanistan – we did not have tens of thousands of U.S. forces on the ground, nor did we control movement and access,” he said. “This meant we did not have complete freedom of movement around the country. Our efforts on the ground therefore had to be carefully coordinated and fully supported by the TNC.”

      He said the rebels were reluctant to relinquish their weapons.

      “Many of these weapons were taken by militias and anti-Gadhafi forces during the fighting,” he said. “Furthermore, because many militias believe MANPADS have some utility in ground combat, many militia groups remain reluctant to relinquish them.”

      Shapiro said the U.S. efforts consisted of three phases.

      Phase I entailed an effort to rapidly survey, secure and disable loose MANPADS across the country.

      “To accomplish this, we immediately deployed our Quick Reaction Force, which are teams made up of civilian technical specialists,” he said.

      Phase 2 efforts were to help aid the Libyan government to integrate militias and veterans of the fighting, including consolidating weapons into secure facilities and assisting in the destruction of items that the Libyans deemed in excess of their security requirements.

      Such actions were likely not supported by the jihadist rebels.

      The third phase would have seen the U.S. helping to ensure the Libyan met modern standards, including updating storage facilities, improving security and implementing safety management practices.

      The U.S. efforts clearly failed.

      Last month, the United Nations released a report revealing that weapons from Libya to extremists were proliferating at an “alarming rate,” fueling conflicts in Mali, Syria, Gaza and elsewhere.

      The Next Benghazi Scandal
      By David Weigel | Posted Thursday, May 23, 2013, at 9:37 AM

      Members of the Libyan rapid intervention force unit patrol at a checkpoint on May 16, 2013 in Benghazi following the attack of a police station.
      Photo by ABDULLAH DOMA/AFP/Getty Images
      It’s been burbling up from the conservative media for nearly six months, starting with Fox News. Last year, the network’s reporter Catherine Herridge reported on a ship that had arrived to Turkey from Libya laden with weapons. Ordnance left unsecured after the fall of Gaddafi was being taken to Syria to overthrow another dictator.

      This isn’t in much dispute. The dispute, and the theory, is that the weapons used to kill Americans in Benghazi were made available by bungling American gun-runners. That’s thetheory floated by Roger Simon, who talks to two “Benghazi whistleblowers” (multiplying like rabbits now).

      [Chris] 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.
      It’s a nearly perfect scandal—Fast and Furious plus Benghazi, a sort of Neapolitan sundae of outrage and disgrace. If the anonymous accusers are wrong, we have plenty of other ways to explain the loose weapons in Benghazi and the transfer to Syria. And making it possible for the stray weapons to get to Syria is the sort of thing both parties in Congress largely favor. But the darkest version of the theory is gaining ground on the right.

    • VTX
    • ATB,
      Excellent catch! Really is a version of FnF – but these weapons are comparable to FnF like a Daisy BB gun is to a Barrett 50 Cal.

      Of course, the term MANPAD was probably mistaken by the Obama State Department, as they thought they were providing sanitary napkins for trannie terrorists.
