N.J. Cop In Obama Rant Speaks Out And Resigns

 

 

 

 

 

” Richard Recine’s 36-year career as a police officer came crashing down this week after he was caught on camera saying police do not have to follow the Constitution because President Barack Obama doesn’t either.

  On Thursday, Recine — who had retired from the Franklin police force in 2006 and was working part time here as a special police officer — submitted his resignation.

” I don’t want to give a black eye to law enforcement,” Recine, 59, said Thursday in an exclusive interview with MyCentralJersey.com. “People are saying some really nasty stuff about cops. I don’t want all officers painted with the same brush.” “

GOP Rejoices As Sebelius Goes, Says Obamacare Must Follow

 

So Long Sebelius Tweet

 

 

” Republicans and conservatives cheered the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Thursday, but many charge that the best cure for the beleaguered Obamacare program that debuted during her tenure is total repeal.

“vSecretary Sebelius oversaw a disastrous rollout of Obamacare, but anyone can see that there are more problems on the way,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement. “The next HHS secretary will inherit a mess: Americans facing rising costs, families losing their doctors, and an economy weighed down by intrusive regulations.

“vNo matter who is in charge of HHS, Obamacare will continue to be a disaster and will continue to hurt hard-working Americans,” Priebus added. “It’s time for President Obama to admit that Democrats’ signature law is a failure and heed Republican calls for patient-centered healthcare reform.”

  Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell noted that Sebelius’ departure comes nearly one year after key Obamacare architect and former Democratic Sen. Max Baucus, now U.S. Ambassador to China, described the healthcare law as “a train wreck.” “

Sharyl Attkisson Resigns From CBS, Partly Due To “Liberal Bias”

 

 

 

” First Liz Wahl quits RT over Crimea, now this. It’s been a bad week for state TV.

  Coincidentally, Alisyn Camerota announced today that she’s leaving Fox News after 16 years, leaving a vacancy in the 1 p.m. hour. (Seriously, though, I think that’s a coincidence.)

  Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network’s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network’s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her packages on television.”

IRS Official In Charge During Tea Party Targeting Now Runs Health Care Office

 

 

 

 

” The Internal Revenue Service official in charge of the tax-exempt organizations at the time when the unit targeted tea party groups now runs the IRS office responsible for the health care legislation.

Sarah Hall Ingram served as commissioner of the office responsible for tax-exempt organizations between 2009 and 2012. But Ingram has since left that part of the IRS and is now the director of the IRS’ Affordable Care Act office, the IRS confirmed to ABC News today.

Her successor, Joseph Grant, is taking the fall for misdeeds at the scandal-plagued unit between 2010 and 2012. During at least part of that time, Grant served as deputy commissioner of the tax-exempt unit.

Grant announced today that he would retire June 3, despite being appointed as commissioner of the tax-exempt office May 8, a week ago.

As the House voted to fully repeal the Affordable Care Act Thursday evening, House Speaker John Boehner expressed “serious concerns” that the IRS is empowered as the law’s chief enforcer.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

George Will: Obama Could Be Impeached Over IRS Attacks On Tea Party

 

 

” George Will could be much better described as a respected member of the Republican establishment in D.C. than a bomb thrower; so when he starts hinting that Barack Obama could be impeached over the IRS persecution of Tea Party groups, it’s significant.

“The Tea Party people have known about this and were working on this,” Will continued. “But they said — it was just some odd underlings out in Cincinnati who did this and there was no political motive whatever involved. Now the question is, how stupid do they think we are? Just imagine, Donna Brazile, if the George W. Bush administration had an IRS underling, he’s out in Cincinnati, of course, saying we’re going to target groups with the word ‘progressive’ in their title. We’d have all hell breaking loose.”

Will noted that one of the items in the 1973 impeachment articles of then-President Richard Nixon, which ultimately led to his resignation, described the Nixon administration’s use of the power of income tax audits in a “discriminatory matter.” “

Her Fatal Mistakes Mirror The Disaster At Mogadishu

 

Delta Snipers Gary Gordon and Randy Shugart

 

 

” When I took Hillary Rodham Clinton to task in January for the mishandling of security in Benghazi, Libya, I told her that if I had been president at the time, I would have relieved her of her post. Some politicians and pundits took offense at my line of questioning.

During those hearings, I reminded Mrs. Clinton that multiple requests were sent to the State Department asking for increased security measures. I asked if she had read the cables from Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens asking for increased security. She replied that she was busy and had not read them. I find that inexcusable.

Four months later, we are hearing that Mrs. Clinton allegedly withheld information from a counterterrorism bureau during the response. We are hearing new allegations that Special Forces wanting to respond during the attacks were told, “You can’t go” by superiors.

The secretary of state’s responsibility is to protect our diplomats. Mrs. Clinton should have been relieved of her post for denying pleas for additional security. Almost 20 years ago, President Clinton’s secretary of defense was relieved of his post for a similarly bad decision.

In early October 1993, a battle between U.S. forces and Somali militia in Mogadishu left 18 Americans soldiers dead, 80 wounded and two American helicopters shot down. Today, this is remembered as the Battle of Mogadishu or more popularly, “Black Hawk Down,” thanks to a subsequent movie of the same name.”

 

 

State Dept "Contractors" Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods

 

 

     While we are comparing politicians Clinton and Aspen’s actions and noting similar incompetence displayed during American foreign policy disasters there is another similarity between the two events . This parallelism however, instead of reflecting a common theme of political incompetence   , involves America and American’s at our/their finest .

    We refer to the ultimate sacrifice paid for the politician’s bungling in Mogadishu by Gary Gordon and Randy Shugart and in Benghazi by Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods . 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Latina Pioneer Solis Resigning As Labor Secretary

 

 

 

” She grappled with trying to bolster the U.S. workforce at a time of fiscal crisis and recovery from recession. “There is still much to do, but we are well on the road to recovery, and middle-class Americans know the president is on their side,” she said.

Obama, in a statement, called her a “tireless champion for working families.”

So far, Obama has picked white males for the three biggest Cabinet positions – Senator John Kerry to replace Hillary Clinton as secretary of state and former Senator Chuck Hagel as defense secretary. He was due to announce Jack Lew as treasury secretary on Thursday, a source said.

Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and a close confidante of Obama, withdrew her name last month from consideration for the secretary of state post in the face of what promised to be a contentious Senate confirmation battle. “

  ” Petraeus’s testimony on Benghazi would have been of much more value than any other witness’s, and thus more potentially damaging to Obama. We know that Americans were under attack, and that both the CIA and the State Department were aware of it in real time. We also know that U.S. aircraft stationed at Sigonella, Italy, could have flown to their aid in less than an hour to suppress the attack and possibly save American lives. And we know that Petraeus — a former top commander who knows how to use air power, special forces, and all the other tools of war — would have been pressed by the committee on why those aircraft weren’t ordered in during the course of a seven-hour attack.

In short, Petraeus was in a position to know more, and explain better than anyone else other than Hillary Clinton or President Obama, what precisely happened here while the Benghazi attack went on. If he were honest — and that has to be presumed — his testimony could have blown the Benghazi affair sky high.”

MORE ON THE TIMING OF PETRAEUS’S RESIGNATION

Wow , what an operator … In one fell swoop Obama nailed 3 , nay , 4 birds with one stone. How , You ask  ? Well think about it for a minute. 

1) He kept the lid on a serious embarrassment to preserve his re-election efforts .

2) He has forced out of office a central player in any Benghazi investigation and with that , denied the General access to pertinent records.

(A caveat : We here are not lawyers and do not know whether General Patraeus poses a greater threat to the Obama administration before congressional investigators as a government employee or as a private citizen . Perhaps a reader could enlighten us on that point .)

  3) He destroyed any possibility of a future run for the presidency by General Patraeus and in the process deprived the Republicans ( presumably) of the prestige afforded the General by an appreciative nation .

   On further reflection we see a possible 4th bird … Might the good General’s reputation be so badly damaged by these sordid revelations that it tarnished once and for all anything the man might choose to do or say … Such as congressional testimony ?

   Why not a quiet , ” I want to spend more time with my family” retirement ? Administrations quietly change personnel all the time , so why the public humiliation ?

   On it’s face , one would think that any administration would be interested in limiting the drama in the personnel changes out of a desire to avoid taint by association .Therefore , knowing this administration , that would lead one to surmise that the administration sees something to be gained by the very public destruction of two accomplished American families .

  On generating the graphics for this post we were reminded of a very pertinent fact … Read the top of the FBI seal below … Yes that’s right …The FBI is a part of the “Justice” Department . Ponder that as you recall which knave is in charge over there .

FBI agents on the case were aware
that such a decision had been made
to hold off on forcing him out until
after the election and were.outraged.

“The decision was made to delay the
resignation apparently to avoid
potential embarrassment to the
president before the election,” an
FBI source says. “To leave him in
such a sensitive position where he
was vulnerable to potential
blackmail for months compromised
our security and is inexcusable.” “

  “Rep. Peter King called for the resignation Friday of U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice for initially saying that the deadly Sept. 11 assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was spontaneous.

“I believe that this was such a failure of foreign policy messag[ing] and leadership, such a misstatement of facts as was known at the time … for her to go on all of those shows and in effect be our spokesman for the world and be misinforming the American people and our allies and countries around the world, to me, somebody has to pay the price for this,” the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee told CNN.”

” William Newell, special agent in charge of the ATF’s field office in Phoenix, speaks behind a cache of seized weapons. The controversial  Operation Fast and Furious was run out of his office. “

(Matt York, AP)

   This whole business of “Fast & Furious ” is a national disgrace .

 

 

 

“California Republican Rep. Tom McClintock has joined scores of his House colleagues in pushing for Attorney General Eric Holder to be held accountable for his role in Operation Fast and Furious.

McClintock’s signature on Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar’s official House resolution of “no confidence” in Holder over Fast and Furious makes him the 129th House member to demand Holder’s resignation, sign the resolution or both. Presumptive GOP presidential nominee and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, three U.S. senators and two sitting governors join those members in demanding Holder’s removal from the Department of Justice because of Fast and Furious. “
