Shameful

During today's press briefing at the White House regarding Obama's refusal to disclose documents pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious, Jake Tapper posed a question to WH Press Secretary Jay Carney and his response (in my opinion) was gut-wrenching.

Q Jay, just one last question. The family of Brian Terry, the slain Border Patrol agent at whose murder scene at least two of these guns were found, they disagree with your characterization about these investigations. They say that the Attorney General’s refusal to fully disclose the documents associated with Fast and Furious and President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege serves to compound this tragedy. It denies the Terry family and the American people the truth. That’s a statement from the Terry family lawyer.

MR. CARNEY: Look, we absolutely agree with the need to find out the truth about why Fast and Furious happened, why the tactic that, again, was employed in the previous administration in different operations and was stopped by this Attorney General -- why it came about. And that’s why the Attorney General referred it to the Inspector General. That is why we have provided Congress every document that pertains to the operation itself that is at issue here when you talk about the family that you referred to. And --

Q The Terry family.

MR. CARNEY: The Terry family. And that is separate from an attempt by members of Congress, Republican members of Congress, to try to score political points -- as Senator Grassley referred to his desire for a “political scalp” -- that is separate from trying to find out the truth about what happened in this operation, which this administration has been pursuing since the Attorney General discovered it.
"The family that you referred to" - because, let's face it, the Obama administration doesn't even care. Not a single person is bothered by the fact that they're trying to spin this and once again pin blame on the Bush administration (or other previous administrations) and they fail to remember, as Carney so perfectly proved, that a U.S. citizen (and more than one, to be honest) died at the hands of Mexican drug runners using guns put in their hands by the U.S. government. Not Holder. Not Obama. Not Carney. There's just no excuse for this bull!

On his show tonight, Bill O'Reilly busted the doors wide open as to what's REALLY going on with Sandra Fluke. How is a Georgetown law student able to go all over the place to do interviews and who is scheduling them? Turns out it's someone with connections to the White House!

Mediate tells the full story (with video): http://www.mediaite.com/tv/bill-oreilly-asks-who-is-running-sandra-fluke-it-all-goes-back-to-white-house/

It turns out SKDKnickerbocker, a PR agency, is representing Fluke (with most of her interview requests going through someone named "Mike"). Who happens to be managing editor? None other than Anita "Mao Tse" Dunn, Barack Obama's former communications director. Dunn is also currently a contributor for NBC News/MSNBC/CNBC. This is the same woman who claimed that Fox News was an arm of the Republican Party. As if MSNBC isn't an arm of the Democratic Party?

So now we know what's really going on here - former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi led the charge for a mock hearing, invited the press to cover it, and then hired professional activist Sandra Fluke to testify. I doubt their intent was to sink Limbaugh or anyone else, but it was definitely an opportunity to drudge up press for the Obama administration any way they could get it. Now Dunn's taken Fluke under her wing.

I'm getting so disgusted with this administration and their misuse and abuse of the media and free speech. I feel what Limbaugh said was wrong, but to use it to attempt to sink him while Fluke herself is a fraud is inexcusable. This is another reason why the Obama administration needs to be out of the White House!

This week there is a story that I feel is big enough to justify the use of bold and italics. And I'm afraid that isn't as funny as I wish it would be.

Maybe I missed some stories, but this seemed like a slower news week to me. Which, naturally, makes some of the awful stuff I did note stand out more. Articles I feel are particularly important are bolded, as usual.

I've used the "Local News" heading before, but just to be clear, since this is a blog I'm going to be using it to refer to internet news. LJ being DDoSed by Russians again, 4Chan DDoSing business websites (there's been a lot of DDoSing going around lately), stuff like that.

Yay, the first round-up! I've been wanting to do something like this for a while, so I appreciate that you are all giving me the chance to. Since I've been gathering up news headlines throughout the week, I've placed the date each article was added to the post after the headline. Stuff I think is particularly important or interesting, will have bolded headlines regardless of the date added. Beneath each headline I will sum up the major thrust of the article, possibly in a humorous manner, in one or two sentences.

Suggestions are totally welcome. News sources you'd like to see in future posts, new categories, things you think aren't covered very well, all that good stuff.

Hat tip to Jim Hoft by way of Adam Baldwin on Twitter. (Yes, that Adam Baldwin she said, seizing the excuse to post a picture :).

Remember how we were all appalled at Obama's moronic "plan" for Israel to go back to its 1967 borders? And the Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu very correctly told Obama off for even suggesting it? This article tells the story of Obama throwing a temper tantrum afterwards at not getting his way, apparently yelling loudly enough to be heard up and down the hallway. However, my favorite part is that Richard Daley, afterwards, was reportedly not even in a bad mood. Perhaps such explosive outbursts are not uncommon from the Five-Year-Old-In-Chief?

Anyway, it's a lulzy article and I recommend it for a laugh.

Most of you probably already heard about Indiana's passage of a law that defunded Planned Parenthood within that state. Though the law is being challenged in the courts (which is something I find extraordinarily problematic, to say the least), it is currently in effect because the judge in the case would not issue an injunction against it.

So, Obama & co. are now threatening to take action against the law in order to keep money flowing into PP coffers.

Argh! )

Rather than devote separate entries, I'll just combine two Wall Street Journal entries into one.

1. Daniel Henninger sums up deftly what motivated the Left in their Tuscon shootings rhetoric: political calculation and personal belief. We've heard it elsewhere, but it's essential to have Henninger's take.

2. Karl Rove waxes about the selection of Bill Daley as Robert Gibbs' replacement, and how his centrism may influence the Obama presidency in the future. We'll see, won't we?

Link: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704803604576077813329940804.html

As always, you make the call.
