Tag: Another instance of WH malfeasance ignored by LSM

Watergate had nothing on this..

I am now convinced Nixon’s crime was to be a republican. We are now getting told by the Obama administration’s IRS cronies that we can’t get Lerner’s emails, because, not only did the PC she used crash and lose her local copy, but they then formatted that hard drive and gave it to somebody else.

Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s crashed hard drive has been recycled, making it likely the lost emails of the lightening rod in the tea party targeting controversy will never be found, according to multiple sources.

“We’ve been informed that the hard drive has been thrown away,” Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the top Republican on the Finance Committee, said in a brief hallway interview. Two additional sources told POLITICO the same late Wednesday, citing IRS officials.

It may just be standard government procedure, but the revelation is significant because some lawmakers and observers thought there was a way that tech experts could revive Lerner’s emails after they were washed away in a computer crash in the summer of 2011. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), for example, subpoenaed her damaged hard drive earlier this week, when he asked for “all hard drives, external drives, thumb drives and computers” and “all electronic communication devices the IRS issued to Lois G. Lerner.”

“IT experts have weighed in and said yes — we can get those” emails, said Rep. Charles Boustany (R-La.) earlier Wednesday.

The latest news suggests such professionals may never get the chance to try again — and the IRS has even said its criminal investigators who specialize in rebuilding hard drives to recover hidden information from criminals were unable to restore the data back in 2011. But this is only likely to further enrage Republicans, who are fuming over the matter and suspect Washington officials drove the selective scrutiny.

Sure, I buy into the nonsense that an organization awash with tax payer money to waste that spends hundreds of thousands on fluff bullshit (remember those training videos?) like the IRS has to recycle a hard drive that’s at least 2 year old after it crashes. Sounds like a sold move without any risk of it blowing up again. How convenient! I am sure the same problem occurred with the other people whose emails also mysteriously have vanished because of some mechanical failure. It’s just a coincidence that the people that have mechanical failures at the IRS are the ones under investigation. I still ask where the backups are. I bet that we will find out that the dog ate the tape drives or they stored that stuff on the cloud and it rained, causing them to lose it!

Can you imagine the reaction from the left if they had caught the Boosh administration using some government agency, let alone one as powerful as the IRS, to target their political enemies, only to be told they couldn’t get a look at the evidence from the major perpetrators under investigation, because all the people involved suffered mechanical failures, of one sort or another, and that the storage for the evidence was then recycled/destroyed? Do you think the LSM would be mute like it is now about this revelation, or would be getting demands for answers? I guess the Pulitzer prize doesn’t hold as much sway in the DNC propagandist community it once had. Or maybe it is just, as I pointed out at the start of this post, that Nixon’s crime was to be a republican.


Blue on blue fight coming after WH goes after Woodward?

Unless you have been living under a rock or get your news from the usual LSM outlets, you must have heard about the controversy caused when the WH threatened Woodward for pointing out how fucked up Team Obama is. The LSM is in a freaking tizzy, but I can go back to before the election where many people, like Barone, predicted the coming Obama thugocracy. These Team Obama people make Nixon look like a piker. First they denied then they threatened Woodward until there was no denying it, but the truth is coming out. Politico has the emails where a senior WH Exec threatened Woodward, so now they are just left with damage control. That means they will make Woodward pay for daring to point out how despicable and crazy they are. Mind you, Woodward is no right winger, he is as leftcore as they get, and he is not alone, as other stories like Ron Fournier getting the rubber glove treatment from the WH, or former Clinton staffer Lanny Davis being told his access would be revoked, are now surfacing.

What this story boils down to is that this WH has an enemies list, and they are neither afraid nor restrained in their response to said enemies. In fact, they are so brazen that they have no compunction threatening a member of the LSM that had already brought down another president, over much less, with serious payback, and felt they could get away with it. They figured the only people that would dare care, and then only if Woodward had the cajones to talk, would be the evil conservatives. The rest of the LSM? They will do what they are told, because they know where their bread is buttered.

I have never been a fan of Woodward, but I see kind of find this stuff he said tame compared to the truth I see going on. His crime I guess is to not bow down to the Emperor and his inner circle’s wishes to be portrayed as the exact opposite of what they really are. The collectivists have no clue what they are doing, and I hazard to point out that things have not completely fallen apart despite what they are doing. If the LSM actually reported how stupid the left really is, can you imagine Obama being reelected? The LSM reports how incredibly stupid the shit the left does like this, and those of us that want to find out what is really going on are left to find the WH lying yet again elsewhere.

No wonder that with the LSM behaving like it does,covering and shilling for them, the WH thought they could give Woodward the shakedown with impunity. I am going to enjoy watching this blue on blue massacre. PASS THE POPCORN!

They did it for national security!

Really, that’s why the LSM kept information about a secret drone base in Saudi Arabia out of the news. And they did it for over a year, so the dronez could not be compromised! Had nothing to do at all with that election thing that happened about 4 months ago or so, I am sure….

Meh, why worry? All is fine because even though this killing people would have made them insane if done by anyne else, because it is being done by their golden boy, it is OK. Besides, they did kept this informatiom from us peasants for a real good reason.

Man, I pine for the days where these losers in the LSM told us that waterboarding was on par with the torture done by those that really knew how to torture, and that Boosh should be dragged in front of a tribunal or impeached for it. These days we are using more rendition than they did in the Clinton years and the prez is killing people and claiming that since they where on his super secret list it makes it OK, and these shitbags are all making excuses for him.

For all the idiots that defended the lie that the WH didn’t know…

I knew that as soon as Team Obama chose to throw Hillary under the bus to cover their ass on their Benghazi fiasco, that this was going to come back to bite them. I expected this to happen after the election, to help Obama, but it looks like it didn’t even take that long for Hillary to burn Barack:

Last night, it was revealed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had ordered more security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi before it was attacked where four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens were murdered by Al-Qaeda but President Obama denied the request.

The news broke on TheBlazeTV’s “Wilkow!” hosted by Andrew Wilkow, by best-selling author, Ed Klein who said the legal counsel to Clinton had informed him of this information.

This wasn’t an accidental leak: the Clintons play for keeps, after all. The Clintons smell an Obama defeat next week, despite the massive voter fraud I expect that will happen to try and steal the election for these bums, and they want to make sure Hillary is distanced from that failure, sooner rather than later.

And there you have it. As all of us sane people knew, the micromanagers in the WH didn’t only know about something that’s scandalous only to pretend they didn’t, but they are the ones directly behind the decision that cost 4 Americans, including the ambassador, their lives. This is not the first time we will find out they lied, not just about knowing what was going on, but about being behind the decision making, and all. Oh how I wish the Clintons had something to gain from exposing the WH’s role in Fast & Furious. We would finally get the truth about that too. I am sure all the appologists with egg on their face will pretend it isn’t there, though.

Don’t worry your purdy heads though lefties. This close to the election the LSM is going to play ostrich and ignore the story. They don’t want to hobble their lame horse any more than it has hobbled itself already, but the stupid and ineptness of Team Obama can not be saved even with the fifth column’s help. It’s neither accidental or coincidental that the only outlet reporting this is Fox News and the only other places you find that it is much worse than it seems is on non-leftoid blogs.
