White House silent about Holder
approving Fox News probe

Washington Examiner, by Brian Hughes

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 5/25/2013 5:55:44 AM

The White House on Friday didn’t respond to a report that Attorney General Eric Holder authorized the seizure a Fox News reporter’s phone and email records — and with no daily press briefing scheduled Friday that could mean silence from the administration through the Memorial Day weekend. NBC News reported Thursday that Holder approved the search of Fox News reporter James Rosen’s private emails and phone records in a probe of leaked government information. That revelation came just as the president ordered Holder to review Justice Department guidelines for investigating reporters. White House officials have not yet responded

They´re busy trying to invent another lie.

This administration believes in soak time. They release something that should be controversial,then hide out and let it soak in with the disengaged population. This way the scandal doesn´t have the initial reaction to gain legs in the media. Holder investigating himself is laughable to us but we´re not the goal. This is for his supporters to know they have nothing to worry about. They know Holder is as corrupt as we all do.

Obama will never seriously investigate any of his political allies and he doesn´t care who doesn´t like it. There´s no one to appeal your case to.

Their silence speaks louder than the claptrap they spin. Holder is guilty and lied about it; the WH knew about it and approved it. Now they are trying to figure out a new spin that the gullible public will buy. Why doesn´t anyone ask Valerie Jarrett any questions. She knows more than Obama.

Obama is the Jodi Arias of American Presidents. Narcissist. Wants America to love him. But since it really doesn´t, and he knows it, he´s hacking away at it, watching it spit up blood in the mirror, and will probably slit its throat and shoot it in the head just before his last trip to Acapulco in 2016.

Meanwhile, hey, he looks good. So what if he lies like crazy and everybody knows it? So the media continues to bring him makeup and can´t wait to get the next interview with him. Sure, they know he´s killing America, but he...just...looks...so good...so cool.

Given the WH press corps´ (pronounced corpse) recent agitation, Holder won´t get out of this one. Look for Jay Carney to announce his spur of the moment 2-week vacation. He will not want to answer this one. He´ll be laughed out of the room. Even lefties are after Holder, which would be a good first step in stopping this culture of corruption.

The WH got around that silence by requiring Holder to investigate himself so Barry can say he can´t comment on an on-going cover-up investigation.

Please bear in mind that holder needed a judge to sign off on this outrage. Get their names out before obama elevates them to higher courts. There is supposed to be a Constitutional check on the power of the administration, WHERE WAS IT?

That used to be referred to as ‘shuckin’ and jivin.’

Another janet reno situation...

Bubba clinton stood with his AG and she stayed and stayed and stayed. Even when he was impeached -- she stayed....

So -- is this another janet reno?

All these scandals from the bubba era isn´t so good for mrs. bubba.

Hey -- has anyone heard from Sarah? She´s been so quiet. Did the IRS get to her too? NOW -- WE know why she stepped down from the governorship in Alaska. She would have had to spend a fortune defending herself... Nice going Washington....

Note the document-dump late on Friday of all this new information, including photographs of Lois Lerner´s signature on documents ordering the conservative targeting. In short, she lied her arse off before Congress.

And now, Holder´s not too big to fit under Obama´s bus, but beware: O is known for firing one miscreant only to place one who is worse in the same slot. They´re like mutating roaches; each iteration gets nastier than the last one.

"Reward your friends and punish your enemies." O may punish one enemy but Holder will get promoted laterally at the very least.

Forget OFA , the new Obama slogan - Hat Tip to Ldotters up thread - should be :
" There´s Never Just One Cockroach " !
Obama should put that seal on his podium and Carney´s and Holder´s and on and on and on.

Could the silence be because holder swore under oath before congress he had never authorized wire taps etc for any media personnel. ... that was before the Rosen story broke... he was questioned on the ap leaks.

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building."

On upcoming trip, Obama

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the departure

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision. From Fox News: The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections.

Rapist’s painting hung in the White House

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it.

Some good folks are pig-biting mad about my recent article noting that the rate of foreclosures has dropped dramatically as a result of the reinflation of the real estate market.(Snip for tweet)Some of the vituperation is coming from the usual gang of housing justice fairness activists incensed that anybody (let alone a majority of homeowners and experts) would oppose the practice of giving public assistance to people who borrowed money with no intention of paying it back.

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'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. 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." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. 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." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

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?
