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!

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).

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

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

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

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

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

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.

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
