All of Obama´s Scandals Are
Ultimately About Information Control

National Review Online, by Jim Geraghty

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 5/21/2013 9:26:54 PM

There’s really no reason for the press to suggest that the recent slew of scandals involving the Obama administration — Benghazi, the AP phone-record seizure, the snooping in James Rosen’s e-mail, the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups, and so on — are a confusing jumble. There is a very clear thread running through all of the administration’s actions: The U.S. deputy chief of mission in Libya, Gregory Hicks, says that he was told not to speak to a member of Congress about Benghazi without a State Department lawyer present, that he received a phone call from Hillary Clinton’s

Barry Soetoro slithered onto the scene with a past that is undocumentated and shrouded in suspicion. He expected America to accept him at face value for the highest position in government. Half of the American people were stupid enough to do just that.

When I was a child I started to notice certain children in my circle (and their families)would go to great lengths to hide common, everyday information. When we became adults I would often find out the family was extremely dis-functional. Obama´s biography screams of the same thing. Why would we think that a man that was discarded by his parents and who, in his later life, always chose evil people as mentors/associates, would run a government that was anything else but bad?

Control is the objective of all tyrannies, and as we have seen with the Obamanation its not just information control. Gun control is people control. Obamacare is people control. Amnesty is people control. The EPA implementing Agenda 21 is people control.

It will be intersting to see how the media sifts out and which among them still have some functioning brain cells and modicum of patriotism or even self-respect.

The best way to thwart control is to not to recognize its legitamacy. Its what the Left did in the 60s and 70s with, "Question authority" and "Sounds like a personal problem." We should revive these golden oldies and throw them back at the marxists.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” ~ Joseph Goebbels

Impeachment will not lead to conviction until we have the current Senate. Then again it will bring on Joe Biden. Additionally it will provide a distraction to the Regime and the MSM to divert attention from all the pressing problems. The task here is to skillfully keep the pot on these misdeeds and outrages boiling all the way to November 2014. Then, if the Republicans blow it again, go home and raise chickens!

Congress will simply not impeach the first black president. However, any legal punishment given to zippy should also include Biden. Anyone really think that he wasn´t involved in all of this, especially the IRS scandal - it was also about stealing the election for him too.

Makes perfect sense. Fauxbama is all words. He´s made of words, contradictory words very often. He eschews the world of leadership and action; it´s all words, all the time. He´s essentially an untenured, unpublished law school lecturer. He has done nothing in his life except talk about his life and tout his life. There is, literally, no there, there (except of course for the words, which are often contradictory).

Good for Geraghty. Good for any able bodied journalist who is not just observing wreckage, or being "chilled", but is connecting the dots, and describing unconstitutional acts. Because the Media must lay the foundation before it call´s for impeachment on behalf of the People." We are at the "Depraving of the American Mind" stage, meaning truth and virtue is becoming imponderable and to be sneered at. Moderate writers, comfortable with reducing the coup to hard ball politics, so that any predictable cries for accountability and impeachment becomes nothing more than a political calculation, are the majoity now. They are too smart by half delaying a call for impeachment until some "right time." If depravity increases (consider McCain´s demented mind], there will be no "right time". Outrages will be more severe, they will have direction from the top, and they will be leaed to drug you. The Media is all we have to make sense of this. These coordinated outrages need to be explained to the people as a breach of trust, for which consequences are required in order to preserve America. Good for Geraghty.

Allow me to explain the following sentance. "All of these actions involve an effort to control information."

This is a deliberate, and succesful attempt to intimidate the opposition and hide the truth from "WE THE PEOPLE" in order to achieve re-election, solidify power and cement Obama´s agenda. This was and continues to be a deliberate attempt to subvert the electoral process, the constitution, the rule of law, and the Republic.

No president has ever attempted what this so called president is currently doing. And we have the press to thank. For over five years, the press intentionally withheld the truth from the people. They were and continue to be willing participants in the destruction of the Republic.

It is not that: "I told you so!" moment,
BUT - for several years I was harping that Lenin and Hitler knew that first steps to win (most important ones): control of the media and control of the banks. Repubics didn´t listen! Of course our American Pravda and Voelkischer Beobachter are the obedient loudspeakers for the leftist administration. But even if some of the members of the media are the members of American Politburo, they are just yapping mutts for the leftist cabal.

One of the reasons to control the information that reaches the people is that it allows Obama to put his own story in place. Witness the stories about his childhood, which are at variance with what is known to be true.

29 Sorry that you think the liberation of Iraq was a scandal, especially since it was a Democrat, Clinton, who signed the Iraq Liberation Act in 1998. Besides, Congress already authorized the use of military force in the bipartisan Iraq War Resolution in 2002, so anything else said about Iraq after that was moot. You should really peddle your lies in an echo chamber or in a forum of fools who would believe your lies.

Impeachment should only be done if there is overwhelming evidence. Looked at how it failed with Clinton.

This would be seen as a racist attempt by the Republicans to get rid of Obama. I think it could even cause race riots.

I think we are far from impeachment. We need to wait until this investigation uncovers a direct tie to Obama or his re-election committee. That may happen. Be patient.

Some parts of this administration focus on preventing information that is contrary to the administration’s agenda from getting out, or hindering its distribution, and making sure that the only information that goes out supports the perspective of the administration. Other parts leak confidential information designed to attack the reputations of those holding perspectives the administration opposes (NOM, the nine conservative groups) or other whistleblowers (ATF agent Dodson).

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery."

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
