Obama administration mistakes
journalism for espionage

Washington Post, by Eugene Robinson

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 5/20/2013 9:24:12 PM

The Obama administration has no business rummaging through journalists’ phone records, perusing their e-mails and tracking their movements in an attempt to keep them from gathering news. This heavy-handed business isn’t chilling, it’s just plain cold. It also may well be unconstitutional. In my reading, the First Amendment prohibition against “abridging the freedom .?.?. of the press” should rule out secretly obtaining two months’ worth of the personal and professional phone records of Associated Press reporters and editors, including calls to and from the main AP phone number at the House press gallery in the Capitol

They are now speaking up because they wonder if they have been being watched. Right now all differences should be put aside politically and everyone band together to stop this assault on freedom, that guy is still in jail after being blamed for a video he made that Obama decided to blame for Benghazi and we know Obama was the one at fault.

Notice how Eugene endorses the Limbaugh theorem by saying the administration not Obama himself mistook journalism for espionage. Obama because he is half black will not be held responsible for any of these scandals. Only far leftists like Eugene and the lo-fo voters believe Obama is not involved in any of them. Good grief how can so many people be so stupid?

I am pretty sure Barack Obama has not lost Eugene Robinson, skin color being high on the chart of importance these days. I do however remember many of the times Robinson has attacked, in print and on Television, those who dared disagree with his hero Obama, including specifically and by name Fox News. Words do harm and have consequences. It is my opinion that Robinson (and others) “gave Obama clearance” to go after the journalists at Fox.

Democrats do not recognize the concept of "loyal opposition". To them, opposition is crimethink and therefore it is not only warranted but justified in having everything they do fall into the category of treason.

Liberalism´s prime directive is to destroy the enemy (anyone who doesn´t obey) in the guise of protecting national security.

This is the most criminal Administration in my long life. If they are not stopped by the very press who kissed their butts and by Congress when they get the goods on the crimes we don´t yet even know about, we´re doomed as a free nation. Hell, we´re not even free now any more.

To reply 4: I heard Rush explain this yesterday and even tho it made me sick, it made sense.

Because Obama doesn´t do anything, doesn´t know anything, but is always ´working to fix it´, he is never held accountable for anything. Well, except being a great guy trying to fix things that he had nothing to do with.

The only thing that will rock this administration is for some of the enablers to realize that he cares NOTHING for us or for them, and if they had been in Benghazi, they would be just as dead as Ambassador Stevens, and Obama would have gone on to his fund raiser in Vegas.

I mention that little fact to trolls sometimes, and occasionally they have no response.

Rubio is "concerned." McConnell sees a "culture of intimidation." Brit Hume calls it "chilling." "It may well be unconstitutional" is Eugene Robinson´s assessment. So you can assume that the only way to stop the coup is when the country gets permission from the black liberals. We know that the administration is supposedly hiding something worse than the IRS scandal, aka "shoe #4." Perhaps Robinson et.al. will move from noticing wreckage, chaos and a likely string of unconstitutional acts, to actually calling for accountability and removal.

When it comes to transgressions of Obama and his Administration, Eugene Robinson has not had a speck in his eye; he has had a plank in his eye.

For him to raise such objections shows just how far Obama has gone and how dangerous is his path.

So Eugene "Pulitzer Prize Winning" Robinson finds that Obama is coming after his peeps and he is outraged. Extraordinary. Maybe one day he´ll learn that dictators use the press as tools. If the press step out of line they are attacked and eventually destroyed.

#8 - bless you. For nearly 50+ years my reading passion has been WWII, German theater. I have had the good fortune to teach that era at various times, both as a full-time history/English teacher and now as a substitute teacher.

It is amazing to watch the faces of the students when I teach about Hitler´s rise to power in Germany. They look at the movies I show and the pictures which depict people very much like themselves. Yes, the clothes look a little different, but the people don´t look much different from Americans. They see the modern-looking buildings of the German cities which look very much like busy American cities.

Then they always ask me: "How on earth could these people who look very much like us fall for such a funny-looking guy with the mustache who held his arm out saluting the air all the time?"

Until Obama, I felt safe in telling the students that Germans didn´t have a U.S. Constitution that forbade the kinds of usurpation of power that Hitler took.

Unfortunately, I´m now not the teacher in charge, and I have to choose my words carefully in answering the question. But I always can say that when the U.S. Constitution is trampled on and disregarded, a Hitler-type of government will likely be the result.

The Soviet Union used to spy on communism´s most ardent supporters just as closely as it watched critics. A few sycophants were always hauled off along with anyone who wavered in belief, just to make it look ´fair´. Perhaps that is what has finally dawned on Eugene.

Still waiting for a convincing argument that Obama lovers like Eugene Robinson defend and support Obama because of his views and policies, not because of the color of his skin.

Were Robinson do that, it would seem too logical that some Obama detractors oppose him because of those views and policies, not because of his skin color.

It wouldn´t seem so hippo critical if he reported some of obama´s other abuses of his office. Only now because it´s the media he is concerned. In a week´s time he will be back to worshiping obama again. I have never been able to understand why the media is so into communist type politicians since they are usually the first ones to go when they take control.

It was proven during the Kerry campaign by the North Vietnamese officers from that time that Cronkite totally lied about how we were losing in Vietnam. If it weren´t for Cronkite´s lies, the North says they were within about 6 months of surrendering. He would never have gotten away with that because of the internet today.

#17, one thing that Rush said early on about Obama still stands: That Obama is COLD. He can do anything to further his goals of "fundamentally transforming" the USA because of that trait, among others. It requires a truly cold and bloodless attitude to stand by and watch Americans be slaughtered, and do nothing to help, then callously lie about the whole situation later.

#8, #21 - And people think that the Nazis never adapted or changed their story to give people what they wanted to hear. I recently read "In the Garden of Beasts", about America´s ambassador to Berlin from 1933-1938. OFTEN when the Americans complained about American citizens being roughed up by Nazi goons, they´d get fulsome apologies and professions of innocence from those in charge. Just like today - it was just some low-level incompetents being stupid, of course the German government would NEVER condone brutality against Americans, or Jews for that matter. Until there were multiple witnesses who couldn´t be dismissed, and then they´d turn nasty.

I don´t think ol´ Gene´s wandered off the reservstion just yet; he just had to get up and adjust his kneepads.

FTA: "That’s where journalists come in. Our job, simply, is to find out what the government doesn’t want you to know." Too bad you have been loathe to DO your job these last four years.

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

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

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

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

U.S. blocks Iran’s pick as envoy to

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking
mortgage relief could get

Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/11/2014 10:28:52 PM     Post Reply
Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

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'

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

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

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

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?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
