Krauthammer’s Take: Obama’s ‘Stonewall
Playbook’ Won’t Work on VA Scandal

National Review Online, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 5/23/2014 8:49:35 PM

While the Obama administration has largely been able to fend off criticism from many of its looming controversies, it won’t be able to do the same with the mismanagement at the Department of Veterans Affairs given the wide scope and various reports and anecdotes of the problem, Charles Krauthammer said on Friday’s Special Report. In the past, the White House used the “stonewall playbook” of refraining from commenting on scandals by pointing to an ongoing investigations, in which there was largely no other source of outside information and allowed the administration to more feasibly control the narrative. In regards to

Sorry Charles Krauthammer but Obama´s ´stonewall playbook´ will work and the stupid Republicans will help. Obama made a speech and he´s outradged so it´s over.

Look at all the turds in Obama´s punchbowl about which he didn´t have the slightest idea until he just stumbled acroos a reference in the the news media:

Fast & Furious. He was so upset about the DOJ´s illicit gunrunning that he invoked executive privilege to keep the information away from Congress.

Benghazi. It was the video, Stupid!

VA. It´s Bush´s fault.

IRS. Those madcap IRSers in Cincy got a little too exuberant in checking the bona fides of any group that had the word "Patriot" in their moniker.

But rest assured, boys and girls, Obama is steaming mad and wii get to the bottom of every last one of these incidents. Just as soon as he plays a few more rounds of golf and headlines about 100 donk fund raisers.

So I think Dr K is wrong. BAM blames Bush, the lapdog media gives him a collective pass and it becomes old news, "move on nothing to see here".

The proximate cause of the VA scandal is Jimmy Carter´s civil service reform. (Carter ran for president in 1976 making two promises = first, that he would never lie to the American people and second, he would reform the federal civil service.
Carter selected Alan ´scotty´ Campbell, former dean of the Maxwell school of citizenship at Syracuse University, to do the reform. Campbell, who had a disdain for public personnel management, fashioned the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978, and as part of that act, performance bonuses were created. The Act was deficient in other ways as well.

Krauthhammer took too long to figure Obie out and should know better by now.

I tell you who´s fault it is, it is the msm fault. As long as they won´t report the news accurately or fairly, Obama can get away with murder. The Republicans running for Congress or the White House can be made to look like fools, racist, women haters and crazies. The single main reason the country is going down the tubes is the socialist, lying msm. The 2014 republican candidates continue to take a daily beating from the press based on lies and distortions. Not a single derogatory word on their socialist anti American, thug candidates.

I agree with poster #5, but also think the fault lies with a dumbed down and frivolous populace which refuses to demand better. If most people have no serious interest in public affairs and the future of the country the media, the schools and other instututions will reflect that.

It is the fault of voters who want something for nothing or to interfere with the way people live their lives.

It is also the fault of other voters who do not vote, volunteer or participate in political action.

Sitting in front of a computer and ranting will not solve the problem. Demonizing politicians of your own party, who cannot solve the problem without our help, will not solve the problem.

Get mad people! If your ideal candidate can´t get elected, get out and DO more to help the politicians we have, instead of whining about the ones we don´t have!

#8 is right: "If your ideal candidate can´t get elected, get out and DO more to help the politicians we have, instead of whining about the ones we don´t have!"

Here are the core values of the TEA Party which should apply to any Republican running for office, too. If a Republican candidate can´t demonstrate that these four principles are his/her values and will fight to uphold them, then said candidate needs to be primaried. It´s a little late for the 2014 election, but all candidates should be judged by how close they are to these values in their past performances:
1. Fiscal Responsibility
2. Constitutionally Limited Government
3. Free Markets
4. Individual Freedom

Benghazi kept its public legs with only four neglected, Hilary Obama betrayed covered up stonewalled deaths.

The VA has given us growing dozens of deaths, one after the other, and growing hundreds of outraged family member whistleblowers ! This Obama crime wave will bring defeat to Obama: also acting as living proof of the coming catastrophe, thousands of more negligent deaths to come from his communist medicine prison camp, Obamacommune.

This massive, history making, non stop whistleblowing
cattle stampede will invite all whistleblowers from every other corrupt crack in our crime ridden government!

This is the turning point in the non violent revolution to
bring down a President even more frightening than the impeached, disbarred co presidents, Bill and Hilary.

No matter how many "Friends of Bill and Hilary" died suddenly, mysteriously, without EVER being investigated, they did not scheme a massive health prison camp, as Obama has done, that could be bigger than the Communist´s Gulag Archipelago slave labor-til death camp, to control the sickness of most Americans to their early deaths.

The tragic VA crisis is the opportunity of a lifetime to regain liberty in this magnificent country. Abolish the crime and waste in our current government and wipe out the communist propaganda of the dominant traitorous
media !

Poster #5 has a very valid point. Consider this. How many people actually hear a political speech? Or knows just what any particular candidate stands for? Or any other forms of communication from candidates or even the government itself. HOWEVER, just about EVERYBODY at sometime is going to hear what the MSM has to say about any subject you can think of. And they, the MSN, has a habit of stating their opinions over and over until everyone has heard at least one of their stories. As such, the MSN has discovered just how much power that they wield throughout this country. It´s really frightening when you think about it. And how and what does one do to change all of this?

Assuming that # 5 is right, Impeach Shinseki! The MSM will have to cover it. The beauty of this tactic is that SEC/VA deserves it. Objectively, it´s the right thing to do. The hearing in the House to justify Articles of Impeachment, and the trial in the Senate (that even Harry Reid couldn´t inhibit) will provide a treasure trove of data about all of the misconduct and criminal activities of the VA bureaucrats. If the GOP can get 67 votes, fine. That vote vindicates the Founding Father´s prescience. If it falls short, every democrat (or RINO) who fails to support Impeachment will pay a price. It is time to DO something. Blaming the poodle MSM, while accurate, only places responsibility. It does nothing to fix the problem. Congress has to stop acting the like a Eunuch.

In the foyer of the Central Intelligence Agency’s headquarters, there is a marble wall covered in stars. They are carved divots that represent those who have fallen in the service of the CIA. Below them, jutting out from the polished rock, is a black book entombed in a case of glass and steel. The book is a guide to the stars, giving the names of some of those who died and withholding the names of others. On the pages of the CIA’s Book of Honor are 107 hand-drawn stars organized by the years those officers died. For 2007, there is

SO FAR Hamas’s military campaign against Israel has been a dismal failure. Thanks in part to Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system, some 1,200 rockets fired at Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and other cities have caused only one Israeli death and a few other casualties. Attempted commando attacks via the sea and a tunnel were stopped short, and a drone that ventured into Israel was quickly shot down. Yet Hamas on Tuesday rejected an Egyptian cease-fire proposal that was supported by Western governments and the Arab League and had been accepted by Israel. Why would Hamas insist on continuing the fight when

Sarah Palin is right about impeaching President Obama. No, not that the president should be impeached. But Palin is correct in arguing that, for those who assert that Obama has grievously abused his executive authority, impeachment is the proper course of action. Of course this won’t happen, for the obvious reason that this tactic didn’t go so well for Republicans last time. Hence House Speaker John Boehner’s curt dismissal of Palin’s call for impeachment: “I disagree.” Boehner’s alternative — a lawsuit — offers the political benefits of draining impeachment fever from the more rabid Republican precincts while rallying the base

Israel’s pledge to intensify its military operation in the Gaza Strip could hasten the moment when the Obama administration will be forced to decide whether to use its leverage to corral its closest ally in the Middle East. Israeli officials, in a series of television interviews, statements and social-media venues, said Tuesday that Hamas’s rejection of a cease-fire offer validated the force it has used over eight days of conflict and made legitimate their argument for a wider military effort. The Obama administration appeared to accept that rationale, blaming the armed Islamist movement in Gaza for missing an opportunity to

It has used its funds to track Muslim attitudes toward Islamism in general, toward specific terrorist groups in particular, and also toward suicide bombing over the past decade. The most recent study, “Concerns about Islamic Extremism on the Rise in Middle East,” released on July 1, conducted among 14,244 respondents in 14 countries between April 10 and May 25, 2014, holds much interest.

President Obama told guests at the White House’s annual Iftar dinner tonight that “further escalation” in the Middle East “benefits no one, least of all the Israeli and the Palestinian people.” Faced with criticism from some Arab and Muslim activists who think he has been too friendly toward the Israeli side, Obama addressed the conflict near the end of his comments, which largely honored “the traditions of one of the world’s great faiths.” “For all of us, whatever our faiths, Ramadan is a reminder of just how much we share.

Four out of five illegal immigrants seeking driver’s licenses under a new D.C. law have failed a written knowledge test — a rocky start to a program that in its first two months has issued 268 licenses, according to city officials. The failure rate of 80 percent compares with a 58 percent failure rate for people seeking traditional driver’s licenses, the Department of Motor Vehicles told a D.C. Council committee. In addition, a check of the DMV website this week shows a massive backlog in appointments required to apply for the District’s “limited-purpose license.” The first available date for an

President Obama has described his foreign-policy doctrine as an attempt to hit singles, doubles and the occasional home run. But at this stage of the game, it looks as though he has popped out, grounded into a double play and been hit by a pitch. His attorney general, Eric Holder, said Sunday that the threat of undetectable explosives from Syria is “more frightening than anything” he has experienced in office. And the Wall Street Journal ran a front-page article Monday reporting that “the breadth of global instability now unfolding hasn’t been seen since the late 1970s” and that “U.S. global

Ponder for a minute what AFSCME has done. The union has severed ties with the United Negro College Fund because the Koch brothers contributed $25 million to the fund. Or rather, because the fund accepted the contribution. The money will pay for 3,000 scholarships and other needs. To read about this episode, go here. The hatred whipped up against the Koch brothers has become nearly frightening, I think. It is undemocratic, unsettling, intolerant.

Maybe it is time for a shake-up. President Obama’s second-term staffing was always going to be a risk. He abandoned his first term’s team of rivals for a closer-knit team of loyalists. The bet was that he was assured enough in the job to no longer need the in-house challenge — and that smooth-running consensus would compensate for the loss. The bet isn’t paying off. Overseas and at home, the administration seems besieged and befuddled. Obama is in danger of cementing an image of haplessness that would be hard to undo.

“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.
