N.Y. Times editorial board:
Obama administration
threatening press freedom

Politico, by Dylan Byers

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 5/22/2013 8:31:26 AM

The New York Times editorial board has condemned the Obama administration for threatening press freedom in the wake of revelations that the Justice Dept. seized phone records belonging to Fox News reporter James Rosen. "With the decision to label a Fox News television reporter a possible ´co-conspirator´ in a criminal investigation of a news leak, the Obama administration has moved beyond protecting government secrets to threatening fundamental freedoms of the press to gather news," the board wrote in an editorial published on Wednesday. Noting past Obama administration intrustions into press freedom, including the Justice Dept.´s

So what? The immigration bill will pass and Democrats will now hold the deferral government in perpetuity.

This is the new norm NYTimes... You made it.

The NY Slimes is just providing cover for obama. The know nothing will be done to stop him so they just throw this out there to look like they are real journalists. In fact they probably support everything he has done. They would love it if obama could get total control of the press then they would have no competition.

But to the NY TIMES they prefer a corrupt, liberal, Democrat government than any conservative. They prefer an unconstitutional, lawless president than a conservative.

Put up Obama against any Republican and all the NY Times liberals would once again vote for Obama. And there lies our problem. With liberals ideology reigns. Lawlessness and unconstitutionality with liberalism is much preferred over honesty and strict interpretation of our Constitution.

It does not matter what happens. Nothing will happen to Obama. The press who still love him and the low information people will still protect him and nothing will happen to him. Oh, our country will be completely gone, it will be free no more, but they will not even know it is happening until it is way, way too late to do anything about it. Give up folks. There is no going back and to go forward is disaster.

Suddenly they got religion?

"The Rosen affair is as flagrant an assault on civil liberties as anything done by George W. Bush’s administration,...

S´cuse me? What "assaults" were those? Did I sleep thru Bush´s assaults on our civil liberties?

The NYT´s knows that if Obama´s free speech attacks are not stopped, that they will be next. Obama has no friends except those who help him squash everyone´s freedom so that he can then burn the Constitution´s 23rd amendment and be dictator for life.

The end result of all O is doing is absolute power concentrated in his hands. It really is that simple and the NYT may just be aware of this. Finally.

A good strategic NYT move. Now, "they´re on the record", having said one honest thing.
What the Slimes writes for the rest of the year will be the same abominable socialist propaganda. So this editorial board noble statement is meaniningless in truth. The NYT
protects greed packed, crazed, criminalized Washington DC, in exactly the same insane manner as the many Diane Sawyer TV news actors offer daily cover-up for all of bad Congress and their millions of useless non essential bureaucrats. Today, bureaucrat Lois Lerner, acts like a mafia kingpin and "takes the fifth", knowing she can bribe her way out of this hearing sham in exactly the same smart way mobsters do it.

At the end of the day, the TIMES will still support Obama like the lickspittles that they are. They are free to complain, now that the election is over and their guy is once again ensconced in the White House. They dont want him and his administration removed, they just want the administration to leave them alone.

And trust me.......if the election was tomorrow, the TIMES would still endorse Obama over the facist Romney /s/ and still endorse the entire democrat slate.

And finally, it´s easy to complain when the entire media universe is on the same bandwagon. But instead of blaming the source, they continue to find other excuses.

republicans, the IRS tax code itself, sequester . . . etc

And when you read comments at the end of negative articles, the moonbats still blame Bush, Bush was worse, FOX news is a criminal enterprise that fabricates news and the TEA Party activists are subversives that should be outlawed.

Obama, unfortunately, will ride this storm out. The NYT will thump their shaved, metrosexual chests in feigned outrage. Then they will begin to create the Cover of the Underlings. After all, The Won is a reformer, a fundamental changer of government. He is above the machinations the mere mortals that are carrying out policy in a more traditional fashion.

The Won stands above it all. Outraged, he denounces the worshippers who serve him. Disappointed, he demands resignations from people who are on their way out of government. Partisan, he casts blame at the culture of Washington in the wake of his predecessor G.W. Bush. Blameless, he makes statements like "let me be clear," or "this goes against our American tradition of honest government."

In the end the NYSlimes will forgive and abet. And The Won will skate by as the LoFo voters seek ways to circumvent the 22nd Amendment.

On New Year’s Eve in 2011, software developer Robin Seggelmann was in front of his computer trying to work out some kinks in the security software most of the Internet uses. That’s when he made a mistake, which led to one of the worst bugs ever in the Internet known as “Heartbleed,” a flaw in the security infrastructure (OpenSSL) for a large swath of the Web. Nowadays, it’s unusual for someone to step up and take responsibility, But Seggelmann, a German developer, did just that.

I never wanted to be a pawn in President Obama’s absurd and irresponsible attempt to mandate, regulate and complicate the American health care system. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much of a choice. I was a casualty of Mr. Obama’s Big Lie. You know the one: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” By the time my plan vanished, the only individual health insurance plans available had been captured by the tentacles of Obamacare. Signing up for insurance under Obamacare was harder than making sense of Donald Trump’s hair. It took more than 20 attempts over

NEW YORK — Millions of passwords, credit card numbers and other personal information may be at risk as a result of a major breakdown in Internet security revealed earlier this week. The damage caused by the "Heartbleed" bug is currently unknown. The security hole exists on a vast number of the Internet´s Web servers and went undetected for more than two years. While it´s conceivable that the flaw was never discovered by hackers, it´s nearly impossible to tell. There isn´t much that people can do to protect themselves until the affected websites implement a fix. Here are answers to some common questions about

few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise.

Last week Hillary Clinton gave what appeared at first to be a rambling and unfocused answer when asked to name the proudest achievement of her four years as Secretary of State. The short version is, she doesn´t have one. But Clinton´s words make a lot more sense when seen not as a non-answer to a specific question but as an effort to lay the foundation and establish a theme for a presidential campaign. The occasion was her appearance on a panel discussion at the "Women in the World" meeting in Manhattan. It was pretty easy going; the moderator, New York

WASHINGTON — Even when Sylvia Mathews Burwell was in her early 30s, friends speculated that she might return to her native Hinton, W.Va., and run for governor someday. After all, she had been a Rhodes scholar, and her mother — who later became mayor of Hinton, population 2,600 — had driven her daughter’s interest in politics. So far that has not happened, but plenty of other things under two presidents have. On Friday, President Obama is to nominate Ms. Burwell, currently director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, to take over one of the largest and most unwieldy

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

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

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
