Where? Who? Why? These are the three big questions surrounding the Benghazi attack and the cover up which followed. Where was Barack Obama during the attack? That should be a very easy question to answer but to this point either nobody knows or they do not want to say. Who put the youtube video language in the 12th edit of the talking points thereby changing the original–correct–motivation for the attack to the lie which was promoted for so many weeks? We still do not know who was responsible, but we do know it came from the State Department. Why was Chris Stevens in Benghazi at a time when it was known the situation on the ground was deteriorating? If this story is true we may soon know the answer and it could be very damaging to both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Barack Obama met with IRS union head in the White House one day before the IRS started targeting conservatives
It is now being reported here that just one day before the IRS decided to start targeting conservative groups Barack Obama met with the IRS union head in the White House:
The head of the National Treasury Employee Union (NTEU), which represents employees of the Internal Revenue Service, met with President Barack Obama in the White House one day before the manager of the IRS’s “Technical Unit” suggested establishing a “Sensitive Case Report” for the tax-exempt status applications of Tea Party groups, according to data from the official White House visitor log and the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.
The White House visitor log shows that NTEU President Colleen Kelley met with Obama–“POTUS,” President of the United States–on March 31, 2010.
Jay Carney and the White House are refusing to answer the question about whether Barack Obama discussed the Tea Party at this meeting: Read more…
Recently we have begun to see some liberal media members–Bill Maher, Joe Scarborough, Kirsten Powers, Chris Matthews, and Piers Morgan to name a few–turn against Barack Obama over the various scandals now swirling around the Obama regime.
And now we can add Keith Olbermann to the list of liberals who are feeling disenchanted by the now exposed Barack Obama. This is what Keith Olbermann tweeted the other day:
My experience dealing with @jamesrosenfnc was unpleasant and contentious. And I fully support him against this unwarranted act by DOJ
— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) May 20, 2013
Of course it is true that Mr. Olbermann is currently unemployed but is in not fun to see these people who were such staunch supporters of Barack Obama finally come to the realization that we were right all along?
It cannot be overstated that these people cannot be trusted for there is probably an ulterior motive, and political calculation, behind this trend and I happen to believe they are leaving Barack Obama in order to set up their support for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Barack Obama is toxic and is old news while Hillary Clinton represents the future of the party. If Hillary takes the fall for Benghazi she will never become president so with a choice to make between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton they are looking to the future.
A new report released by a Department of Injustice Inspector General has found that the Injustice Department leaked documents in order to smear whistleblower John Dobson.
United States attorney Dennis Burke is the man guilty of inappropriately leaking this information:
The DOJ IG said it found “Burke’s conduct in disclosing the Dodson memorandum to be inappropriate for a Department employee and wholly unbefitting a U.S. Attorney.”
“We are referring to OPR our finding that Burke violated Department policy in disclosing the Dodson memorandum to a member of the media for a determination of whether Burke’s conduct violated the Rules of Professional Conduct for the state bars in which Burke is a member,” the IG wrote
This is interesting in light of the fact that it was none other than Barack Obama who signed the Whistleblower Protection Act into law isn’t it? Suddenly he is not so interested in protecting whisleblowers.
With all the scandals currently swirling around the Obama regime we have already learned that Nancy Pelosi failed to drain the swamp of the culture of corruption in Washington as she promised to do, but now we are learning there is a culture of intimidation running rampant within the Obama regime. This is Chicago style thuggery at its best, oppose the president at your own peril…..
One of the questions which remains after the Benghazi terrorist attack is where was Barack Obama during the attack? We know that he did not speak to Hillary Clinton and that he only spoke briefly to Leon Panetta at a pre-scheduled meeting at 5:oo on September 11th, but after that the president appears to have been MIA.
To his credit Chris Wallace tried to get an answer to that question from White House spokesman Dan Pfeiffer on ‘Fox News Sunday’ but all he got from Mr. Pfeiffer was what basically amounts to his own what difference does it make moment:
Wallace pressed him further: “With due respect, you didn’t answer my question: what did the president do that night?” Pfeiffer said that Obama was in touch with his national security team, but as Wallace pointed out, he didn’t talk to the Secretary of State except for one time after the attack was over, didn’t talk to the Secretary of Defense, didn’t talk with the Joint Chiefs of Staff as it developed.
Finally, Wallace asked whether Obama was in the Situation Room. “I don’t remember what room the President was in on that night,” shot back Pfeiffer, “and that’s a largely irrelevant fact.”
Dan Pfeiffer was sent out there this morning to defend Barack Obama and even he cannot tell us where Barack Obama was during the attack and we are supposed to believe it really does not matter where he was because Barack Obama was in contact with someone even though he cannot tell us who he was in contact with? Barack Obama is the Commander-in-Chief, he is the one charged with doing all he can to protect those in harms way, and nobody can tell us where he was even eight months after the attack, this is not irrelevant!

This has been quite a week hasn’t it? We are finally seeing the Obama regime called on the carpet for various scandals and the American people are finally starting to realize the warnings we have been giving all along are actually more than just conspiracy theories.
This was never more evident than when Eric Holder appeared before the Congress and claimed approximately 1,592 times that he had no idea what the hell was going on with the rank and file he supposedly oversees, so I thought it to be quite appropriate to include Sam Cooke’s ‘Don’t Know Much” as this week’s musical selection. Okay, the song is technically called ‘Wonderful World’ but what the hell, don’t know much is much more fitting, and the Obama regime would never let such a small fact get in the way of his agenda, so why should I?
According to this article Anne Henderhott, who writes for the Catholic publication ‘Aleteia’ believes she may have been audited by the IRS for writing anti-Obama articles:
“I have no proof of it being a political audit,” Hendershott said. “Only the curious circumstance surrounding it. My husband and I have been married for 39 years and never have been audited before. It was odd that [the agent] only wanted to talk with me–although he said I could bring our tax accountant… All of the questions focused on who was paying me for the articles.”
“He kept asking me who was paying me: ‘Who paid you to write this one?’ and ‘What did you get paid for that?’” she claimed.
She admits she has no proof her audit was politically motivated but in light of the recent IRS revelations it is not beyond the realm of possibility that this was indeed the case.
She was so intimidated by the IRS audit that she stopped writing articles which she felt led to the audit in the first place:
Hendershott said she felt so intimidated by the IRS agent that she stopped writing on some topics she believed may have triggered the call from the agency in order to avoid placing her family in a difficult position
So while she had no idea what the IRS was up to at the time she knew instinctively that something was wrong and she changed what she was doing in order to avoid future audits. Mind you that she did not feel she had to change anything related to taxes to avoid future audits by the IRS, but rather her political writings.
There is no doubt in my mind at this point that the IRS and the Obama regime accomplished what it set out to do in this case, stifle the opposition, chalk another one up to the Obama regime before the 2012 election…..
