A reporter’s guide to
dealing with the White House

Washington Post, by Al Kamen

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 3/22/2014 10:44:39 PM

After Politico’s Dylan Byers posted a play-by-play this week illustrating the cat-and-mouse games the White House plays with the press, frustrated reporters took to Twitter recounting their favorite response lines from administration officials with the hashtag: TweetYourAnonymousFlackQuotes. This friction is, of course, nothing new. Past White Houses and government agencies have certainly been evasive. But judging from the frequent complaints we hear, the lack of transparency is worse than ever. Our colleagues have found that a number of truly unhelpful responses have become the standard repertory at many

Comments:
You just got to wonder why this "sudden" coordinated attacks against the 0bamaNation. Or, is this the scared dRATS up for reelection priming their sources to take the pressure off themselves?

OP has got it right. The WaPoo publishes an article about their unhappy reporters. Boo, freaken, hoo.

Rather than tweeting their "favorite" flack quotes it would serve our nation better if "reporters" asked some hard questions and kept asking until they got some meaningful answers.

In order to be helpful, here´s some topics they may need to ask questions about:

Benghazi
Seal Team Six murders
IRS harassing citizens
EPA harassing private property owners
Zerocare waivers and the 30 exec orders
What happened to the "stimulus" money
And, on and on and on.

The only possible reason Obama´s Ministry of Truth would begin to question his Benevolent Omniscience, would be the preliminary adjustments needed to change the focus of their sycophancy to President Miss Hillary, Empress of the Socialist Internationale. Otherwise, they are still Dear Leader´s eager slaves.

I have have said like many others, on countless occations, the msm is mainly responsible Obama being elected President and reelected. They have sold their souls, as the press has all over the world, to big government socialism. They really don´t understand socialism and the misery it invokes but their education teachers it, Obama is cool and everyone they work believe it. Cool to them is: not believing in God, believing free enterprise is bad, believing America was evil country, believe the Constitution is irreverent, freedom is just another word...much like responsibility. Ninety % of them should have a fair trail for treason and those convicted hung on court square.

Dang. The NSA just ate my post again! It is happening with enough frequency that it makes me suspicious. The long and short of my post is that these reporters are a disgusting lot. They bootlicked their way to access and now whine when they are denied. Chumps! They were used and continue to be played by an administration whose whole focus is "controlling the message". They deserve nothing but contempt. The media are self-serving ideologues more given to celebrity than they are to honest reporting. Watch the wealsy little cowards, they will put on their coats of indignation when a Republican denies them access. They did this to themselves. The only thing they deserve is ridicule and to be laughed at in their self-righteous faces.

This government is slowly losing control of the people they need to have on their side to survive. The only people stupid enough to still have scales on their eyes is the hollywood crowd. It´s all over but the U-Haul pulling up to the White House and I feel sorry for the movers if mama robinson is in charge of the event.

Our only concern now is removing the obama puppet masters. We won´t know the truth about any of the aforementioned serious crimes against the people of the United States until the entire rats´ nest is cleaned out.

Don´t reporters know they don´t have to get their information from the White House? The WH will only give them what the WH wants them to have.

The reporters could actually go out and do some real investigative reporting.

Washington - The White House is defying a congressional subpoena by keeping a top political aide to President Barack Obama from testifying at a hearing Wednesday. The White House is arguing that Obama adviser David Simas is immune from subpoena by the House Oversight Committee in its investigation into the political office that he directs. White House counsel Neil Eggleston says in a letter to Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa that the Simas subpoena threatens the constitutional separation of powers. White House lawyers spent an hour and 15 minutes Tuesday briefing the committee´s staff behind closed doors on the political office´s

A Transportation Safety Administration agent at the Orlando International Airport rejected a man’s use of his D.C. driver’s license as identification — because he had no idea where the District of Columbia was located, according to a report by WFTV. According to the news agency, Justin Gray — a D.C. resident — was flying out of the airport and attempted to use his driver’s license as his form of identification when passing through a security checkpoint. The TSA agent attending to Mr. Gray rejected the license and demanded his passport. Mr. Gray, who did not have his passport on his person, asked the agent why it was necessary,

Almost three dozen Disney theme park workers have been arrested for alleged kiddie-sex crimes since 2006, according to a broadcast report. The 35 busts have been for possession of child porn or trying to meet a minor for sex, CNN found after combing through law enforcement and court records. So far, 32 of those busted have been convicted and the other cases are pending. Two cases of child porn allegedly happened on Disney property. Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler said these scary arrests represent only a tiny fraction of the company’s workforce. “Providing a safe environment for children and families is a

Paul Ryan: Immigration Bills Dead,

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/15/2014 7:49:16 PM     Post Reply
Representative Paul Ryan (R., Wis.,) has given up on passing legislation to overhaul the current immigration system because the border crisis has poisoned the political atmosphere for such an effort, at least for this year. (Snip) Ryan also summarized his view of how to resolve the border crisis. “The ultimate goal ought to be to secure the border, get the resources at the border that you need (and that’s where I think there’s a case for a supplemental; they’re burning through funds). But you’ve got to change the human trafficking law so that we’re not resettling people within the interior of the country, because all that does is create the incentive

Highway Bill in Bipartisan Vote

Washington - Behind a slight majority of Democratic votes, the GOP-controlled House of Representatives voted late this afternoon to approve a $10.8 billion short-term extension of the Highway Trust Fund. The temporary lifeline for the nation’s construction workers passed 367-55, with 186 Democrats joining 181 Republicans on the vote. The legislation, known formally as the Highway and Transportation Funding Act of 2014, was opposed by many conservatives, with both the Club For Growth and Heritage Action pressing lawmakers to oppose the vote. Forty-five of the House Republican Conference’s most conservative

Lawmakers pushed back Tuesday against the Environmental Protection Agency’s move to garnish the paychecks of accused polluters, advancing a bill that would block the new authority. The House Committee on Appropriations approved the countermeasure as a policy rider on a $30.2 billion spending bill for natural resources agencies, including the EPA, the Interior Department and U.S. Forest Service. The amendment by Rep. Tom Graves, Georgia Republican, passed the committee in a voice vote, signaling an absence of strong opposition, if not support for prohibiting the EPA from claiming authority to garnish wages to collect fines

For an unknown candidate, political campaigns are not glamorous. “I’m sick, tired, hungry and broke,” jokes Joe Carr, a Republican Senate candidate in Tennessee. (Snip) But Carr was convinced his primary challenge to Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander was primed to catch fire. The spark may have finally come last month, when House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was bounced in a GOP primary by an unknown challenger named Dave Brat. The black swan upset buoyed Carr’s campaign, opening a fresh spigot of cash and prompting comparisons to the Virginia economics professor who was written off by everyone until he toppled Cantor.

Stolen uranium compounds not

Plenty of materials for a potential dirty bomb are likely scattered throughout the area of Iraq controlled by ISIS, and pulling off an attack that spreads even a minor amount of radiation could be a huge PR coup for the terror group, experts told FoxNews.com. Last week, the Iraqi government in Baghdad warned the UN that ISIS operatives had stolen 88 pounds of uranium compounds from Mosul University. Even though many experts said the research materials were not enough to cause widespread harm, spreading fear is even more important to terrorists than a big body count, one terrorism expert said.

Sunni radicals with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) may have captured as many as 52 U.S.-made M198 howitzers in their march across Iraq in June. “They shouldn’t have too much trouble shelling large area targets like a city if they have sufficient ammo,” Jeremy Binnie of the British military consultancy HIS Janes toldMcClatchy news service Monday. The artillery weapons, which cost roughly $500,000 each, include GPS aiming systems. Mr. Binnie told McClatchy that the Islamic terrorist organization would have a difficult time figuring out exactly how to use the technology’s pinpoint accuracy, but that members would still be able

Maryland state police are investigating as a hate crime graffiti that protested illegal immigration on the wall of a former Army Reserve Center that was mulled for use as a shelter for unaccompanied alien children. “No illeagles [sic] here. No undocumented Democrats,” the graffiti said in capital letters, according to the Carroll County Times. Lt. Patrick McCrory, commander of the state police Westminster barracks, said the message likely went up Saturday night or early Sunday. He said he considered the message to be a hate crime. “This is definitely a racial, religious, ethnic incident,” he told the paper. Police do not yet have any suspects

Former Vice President Dick Cheney said that the Bush administration left Iraq in reasonably good shape, and blamed President Barack Obama for not getting a security agreement from Iraqi leader Nouri al-Maliki to keep some U.S. troops there after 2011 to help ensure stability.

Obama has sent military advisers to assess the situation on the ground.

Kissinger, 91, served as national security adviser and secretary of state during the Nixon administration. He remained secretary of state through the short Ford presidency and held the adviser position for part of that administration. "He is resting comfortably," a New York-Presbyterian Hospital statement said.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
