What if…

” Richard Nixon didn’t just have an enemies list but a personal “kill list” and claimed the right to kill Americans without trial, even though he promised not to do so?”

When It Rains, It Pours: Ten Press Conference Take Aways

 

 

 

 

” President Obama’s press conference in the rain was not a success, if by success, his supporters would mean an event which convinces anyone who doesn’t work for him that he’s getting ahead of the scandal deluge. The sight of a Marine holding an umbrella over his head only added to the weirdness of the event.

So what did we learn?

4. He wouldn’t say that the White House had no previous knowledge of IRS wrongdoing. Instead he said he didn’t have any knowledge of the Inspector General’s report before it was released.

5. He brought up funding for our embassies, referencing Benghazi, Libya. But of course we know that funding shortages had nothing to do with the fiasco that transpired. For claiming otherwise my colleague Glenn Kessler awarded Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) three Pinocchios.

10.  Mainstream media reaction to the president’s handling of the scandals ranges from bad to terrible. Sure there are some very creative excuse-makers for the president, but they are now in the decided minority.”

The I.R.S. Abusing Americans Is Nothing New

Published on May 15, 2013

” The I.R.S. targeting of tea party groups in the United States is par for the course. It’s not the first time the agency has been used for partisan political ends. Whether or not the targeting was undertaken as a directive from the White House, the agency’s broad latitude in determining what constitutes partisan political activity is very problematic. The solutions offered by campaign finance reformers would unfortunately only give the agency more power.

Richard Milhouse Obama

Enemies List 

 

  ” A Republican donor featured prominently on President Obama’s “enemies list” is facing intense scrutiny from federal authorities, the Wall Street Journal’s Kim Strasselreports.

Frank VanderSloot, an Idaho businessman who has contributed significantly to Mitt Romney’s campaign, was previously targeted by the Obama campaign as a “less-than-reputable” individual, as well as a “litigious, combative and a bitter foe of the gay rights movement.”

That was only the beginning of his troubles, apparently.”

  Below is one of an on-going collection of updates that  PJmedia’s Bryan Preston is providing via the Tatler .

   If you are interested in the showdown that is brewing between the legislative and the executive branches check it out and go back often .

” Update : In the landmark case that spells out presidential executive privilege, United States vs Nixon (1974) , the Supreme Court found that executive privilege pertains to communications directly with the president, and otherwise limited the scope of executive privilege.

   Today’s move by the White House
implies either that Fast and Furious reaches
directly into the Oval Office, or that the White
House is challenging the Nixon ruling. Either
way, today’s assertion is a major escalation of the scandal. “

When can you recall a president stooping to this level of  character assassination of PRIVATE citizens ?

” Three weeks ago, an Obama campaign website, “Keeping GOP Honest,” took the extraordinary
step of publicly naming and assailing eight private citizens backing Mr. Romney. Titled
“Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney’s donors,” the post accused the eight of being “wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable
records.”

“Less than reputable” according to who ? Tim “tax cheat ” Geitner ? Eric ” Fast and Furious” Holder ? Jeremiah ” God..mn America” Wright ? Tony ” Jail” Resko ?

  “About a week after that post, a man named Michael Wolf contacted the Bonneville County
Courthouse in Idaho Falls in search of court records regarding Mr. VanderSloot. ”
  
  ” Some digging revealed that Mr. Wolf was, until a few months ago, a law clerk on the Democratic
side of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. He’s found new work. The ID
written out at the top of his faxes identified them as coming from “Glenn Simpson.” That’s
the name of a former Wall Street Journal reporter who in 2009 founded a D.C. company that performs private investigative work.”

We are back in Nixon territory with “enemies lists ” only this time undertaken by the champions of underhanded dirty dealing  , the “Chicago Mob ” . Ethical ? Ha . Open ? Yeah sure . Honest ? Give me a break . The nation has been transformed into a  Thugocracy .
