Ben Shapiro, at Breitbart.com has summarized the frustration that people in the New Media feel about waiting for the Old (decrepit) media to catch up.
Pro-lifers feel his pain. We always have to wait years, and even decades for the lamestream media to report on what we have known forever. There is the constant derision coming from the media elites, followed years later by their admission that we were correct all along.
In the case of the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, the media covered up an Obama administration cover up, so that BHO could be reelected. Now that all the participating parties, except for Barry himself, have moved on to other jobs, the Old Media is now forced to reveal some of the facts. In doing so, they’re pretending that they were played as dupes for months by Obama and Hillary Clinton.
We know better. Obama got re-elected, and he got away with ANOTHER coverup, similar to that of the Fast and Furious debacle. Unlike the Nixon coverup, Obama’s crimes have initially cost hundreds of lives and damaged U.S. foreign relations. Many more lives will be lost due to our nation’s resultant loss of stature on the world stage.
Obama reassured pro-aborts in his Friday address to Planned Parenthood: “You’ve also got a president who’s going to be right there with you, fighting every step of the way,”
He lauded planned parenthood for their industry of providing birth control and abortions to girls and women, and their TSA method of breast cancer “screenings”. Recall that the organization does NOT provide mammography services.
Unmentioned in his speech are efforts to promote women’s safety and improve abortionists standard of service, the decision to put the morning after pill out on store shelves, and the ongoing murder trial of the infamous abortionist Kermit Gosnell.
In 2010, Andrew Breitbart got into a fight with the NAACP, charging them with their very own racism. He published a video showing an NAACP audience which had cheered a statement in a speech by Shirley Sherrod mentioning an initial desire to refuse to help a white farmer in her capacity as USDA Director of Rural Development in Georgia. Not withstanding Breitbart’s accompanying statement that Ms. Sherrod actually decided that she would render aid to that farmer, the lefties attempted to spin his message against the NAACP attitudes as an attack on Shirley Sherrod. An apparent basis for their spin is the leftist assumption that their constituency cannot read, and could only take in the video clip. This fight grew into a firestorm, and eventually led to Breitbart’s investigation into a class action lawsuit of discrimination against Black farmers, from which Sherrod and her husband had benefited to the tune of $13 million, prior to her being hired by the USDA.
This was the Pigford v. Glickman decision, which morphed into the most bloated civil rights settlement in history.
While an expected 2000 Black farmers who had been thought to suffer discrimination from the USDA’s loan grant policies, the number of applicants for payouts ballooned to 16,000. In 2008, Senator Obama sponsored legislation was passed, which allowed another 70,000 people to qualify for settlements stemming from this original USDA decision. This latter law allowed Ms. Sherrod the larger $13 million windfall from the government.
The huge numbers of people benefiting from the original Pigford and Glickman payout by the USDA massively exceeded the total number of Black Farmers in the United States. Breitbart had uncovered one more government boondoggle paying out billions of dollars to more than double the total 40,000 black farmers in the U.S. He published a series of articles explaining the government fraud, which was ignored by the mainstream media, except FOX.
Now that the New York Times has finally caught up to this web of government fraud, and payment of agricultural settlement money to people who were never farmers, Breitbart.com is celebrating today that the lamestream media has finally noticed. One problem with their own article is the suggestion in the headline, that the story in the New York TImes “Vindicates ” Breitbart. Wrong!………. The headline should indicate instead that the New York Times is finally catching up with Breitbart.
The erroneous idea that the NYT is the news of record is something which needs to be corrected.
The “Gray Lady” has been exhibiting signs of dementia for years.
It appears that a former person of interest in the Boston Jihad incident, has been shoved into the mainstream media memory hole. We are no longer supposed to be concerned with a Saudi national, who was investigated in connection with the bombing at the Boston Marathon.
Glen Beck and The Blaze are yanking Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi back out of obscurity, pointing out that he had quite an interesting file, containing many reasons to be on the no-fly list, and to not be allowed in the U.S. at all. It seems that he was considered “armed and dangerous” and worthy of deportation for security reasons, and for terrorist related activities. His entry into the country under a special advisory option raises questions about the ability and interest of the government to handle issues of national security
Surreptitious alterations in this man’s file as well as a general cover-up have been discovered.
It seems that Janet Napolitano has been caught lying about the government interest in Alharbi, and she might experience future troubles with a charge of perjury.
Keep your eyes on The Blaze as the Alharbi coverup unravels.
Obama will be heading to a Planned Parenthood Gala (fundraiser) in Washington DC on Thursday of this week. While the Kermit Gosnell infanticide trial proceeds, Obama will be bringing in additional dollars for his long time supporter, which is the largest abortion provider in the U.S.Obama refused to comment on the Gosnell situation, giving the excuse that the trial is ongoing.
Update: Amid all the furor over Kermit Gosnell’s trial for abortion and infanticide atrocities, Obama has opted NOT to give the keynote address at the Planned Parenthood fundraiser, opting to perhaps appear on Friday morning during the event. Apparently this top gathering of abortion supporters is a conference. Its location has been a well kept secret, in order to ward off the pro-life protests.
Matthew Sheffield of Newsbusters has supplied a collection of tweets coming from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s account, celebrating the 2012 victory of Obama over Romney. Accompanying this is a long list of links showing the leftist media trying to paint the two brothers, who are blamed for the Boston Jihad, as conservatives. Should people be supporting news outlets which are habitually wrong?
Watertown Police Chief, Edward Deveau has related a story of how Dzhokhar’s older brother died : Cops were in the process of handcuffing Tamerlan when Dzhokhar drove a stolen SUV at them. The police were able to dive out of the way, but Tamerlan was run over, and dragged by the vehicle.
Update: Where did Dzokhar get money? A few individuals have claimed that they bought pot from him, so it appears he got at least some of his income from selling drugs. There is also mention of work on the side, repairing cars.
Because Obama still thinks infanticide is OK, but he just can’t say it out loud.
Jay Carney had to evade questions regarding the infanticide practice at the Gosnell abortion clinic in Philadelphia. Reporter Ed Henry connected the big push for “anti-gun” legislation (As Harry Reid calls it) with the idea of regulating abortion clinics to prevent infanticides. Jay had to dodge this one, saying “I just don’t have a comment that could shed light on this specific case”.
It could finally be possible to force the media to acknowledge that Obama is an infanticidal nutcase.
Pharmer harkens back to Memorial Day weekend of 2011, when New York Congressman (D), Anthony Wiener, was outed in the conservative blogosphere for showing too much of himself online to very young ladies. The lamestream media tried its very best to stuff this revelation back into obscurity, but it was too nasty, hilarious, titillating, or otherwise entertaining to too many people. The online tsunami of information overcame the leftie press, and the disgraced Representative Weiner was forced to resign his position.
It could be possible with the juxtaposition of Abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s trial for multiple infanticides, the memories of Obama vigorously opposing the Born Alive Infants Protection Act of Illinois, and the latest OUTING of Planned Parenthood’s infanticidal agenda, to finally make the low information voters understand that Obama and his pro-abort supporters are off the wall extremists.
Remember what the Dems did to Todd Akin, because he thought that the stress of a violent rape makes a woman infertile? Recall what they did to Richard Mourdock for suggesting that a new life coming out of the miserable crime of rape could be God’s will? Who would try to tell Ryan Bomberger, Rebecca Kiessling, and the rest of these people, who were conceived as a result of rape, that they should be killed? The media, using false pretexts, beat up two legitimately good political candidates so badly that their own cowardly party disowned them.
Don’t you think it’s time to return the favor to the abortion supporters, and their left wing media, whose war on women has killed millions?

It seems that when Obama gets out in public, it’s not all unicorns, rainbows and fainting fans anymore. He’s experienced some audience dissatisfaction over the Easter weekend. At Port of Miami, he gave a speech which received some negative response. On the following Saturday, Obama appeared with his good buddy Reggie, at an NCAA final 8 playoff, after some time on the golf course. He was booed vigorously when the cameras focused on his visage and pasted him up on the monitors.
January 2009 – 31,939,110 food stamp recipients.
October 2012 – 47,525,329 food stamp recipients
2009 food stamp expenditures 55.6 billion
2012 food stamp expenditures 80.4 billion
SNAP, the food stamp program, does not account for all of the 106 billion spent on food assistance in 2012.
Next time a leftie tells you that the economy is improving, ask him to account for these numbers, which show an average daily increase of 11,233 food stamp recipients during Obama’s first four years.
Lots of people are noticing the similarity between the role played by Mohamen Mehdi Ouzaani of History Channel’s mini-series, “The Bible”, and Obama.
Alliance Defending Freedom has succeeded in winning an injunction for Sioux Chief Plumbing Company against the Obama HHS mandate. This brings to 12 the number of victories for businesses and institutions which have brought suit on first amendment grounds against the Obama administration violations of the First Amendment.
Kathleen Sebelius administers this mandate, which forces businesses to pay for abortions, birth control and sterilizations, regardless of their religious beliefs. The Obama administration holds that anyone who operates a secular business is not permitted to exercise their religious beliefs in their daily lives and their work.
Generally a court will grant an injunction against a law or government regulation when there is good likelihood that there will be a final ruling against the law.
Alliance Defending Freedom is handling eight additional lawsuits against Obama’s Abortifacient HHS mandate.
The Sequester is not really a cut in spending at all, but a reduction in the projected increase. The spending in 2013 will still be larger than 2012. However Obama promised a lot of pain to be associated with the sequester, and it would appear that federal officials are being ordered to make this happen.
And example comes from an internal email exchange by an Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service official, Charles Brown. He asked if he could spread whatever cuts might affect his region to make them as painless as possible. The answer was that he was not to do anything to lessen the impact on fish inspections, so that the effects would be as dire as Obama warned Congress they would be. Cuts in his area are to eliminate aid to prevent wildlife damage to the aquaculture industry in 24 states.
In other words, we have direct evidence that Obama is going to make HIS sequester painful, and blame the whole idea on the Republicans.
Obama also has threatened that he has an ability to target cuts, eliminating meat inspectors, for example, so as to reduce the available food supply. He might not remember that his supporters will be punished most of all, as this cut would affect the inner city “food deserts” more than the most rural areas. (Pharmer recalls to mind the increasingly severe cuts in DRUG supply which the nation has been experienced during Obama’s tenure.)
Since this APHIS email came to light, the USDA is walking back the implications of the report, saying that they will try to mitigate the effects of the sequester as much as possible.
The Washington Times also noted that the White house was facing questions on the 50 million dollar order for new TSA uniforms that it made just before the sequestration took effect.
Obama is also closing the White house to tours, and blaming this on the sequester. Perhaps he fears blowback from his obviously vengeful attitude towards Americans. Inside the beltway, people are asking why Obama can’t keep the White house open, noting that President Lincoln was able to do so throughout the time of the Civil War.
Barrie Obama is no Abe Lincoln.
Two years ago, the Obama administration was outed in San Francisco for threatening to exclude reporter Carla Marinucci and other Hearst journalists from future appearances, after she included a video of a protest outside an Obama April 2011 appearance in that city. The editor at the San Francisco Chronicle, Phil Bronstein, reported on the threat the following day, which the White house officials then denied.
This prompted Chronicle editor Ward Bushee to call the officials out on their lie. He revealed a day of correspondence between the editors and the White house, which finally resulted in the rescission of the ban.
A portion of the behavior of the media is based on a fear of losing access if they do not faithfully serve the interests of the administration. The net effect is that Americans have news which is not news, but is merely government feed.
Bob Woodward reports that he has angered the Obama administration so significantly that he has been threatened by a “very senior person” at Whitehouse. They did not appreciate Woodward reminding us that Obama originated the sequestration and signed the bill which contained it, on August 2 of 2011, and then threatened veto of any bill which rescinded any part of it.
Woodward also has objected to Obama’s changes in military maneuvers, and blaming the sequestration for these changes.
From Business Insider: “Earlier today on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Woodward ripped into Obama in what has become an ongoing feud between the veteran Washington Post journalist and the White House. Woodward said Obama was showing a ”kind of madness I haven’t seen in a long time” for a decision not to deploy an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf because of budget concerns.”
Obama and cronies invented this sequester, and he threatened to veto any bill which interrupted the automatic reductions in planned spending.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: “Already, some in Congress are trying to undo these automatic spending cuts. My message to them is simple: No. I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending. There will be no easy off ramps on this one. We need to keep the pressure up to compromise – not turn off the pressure”
Obama signed the Sequester bill on August 2, 2011, and this LAW started cutting in 2012. It scheduled additional reductions (totalling 1.2 trillion) yearly over 10 years, with $85 billion in reduction planned for 2013. The president has a great deal of discretion in determining where the cuts will be.
Now Obama has turned against this plan that he originated way back in 2011, and is blaming it on the Republicans.
Sequestration amounts to about $85 billion reduction in the spending increase slated for this year. One half of that is for the defense dept. It means that spending for the affected areas will only go up about 6-8 percent instead of going up 8-10 percent as baseline budgeting dictates.
To put this 85 billion sequestration for 2013 in perspective:
The government spends $3.5 trillion per year.
The government spent $50 billion on Tropical Storm Sandy relief.
The government spent $30 billion on extension of unemployment.
Bob Woodward, leftie journalist of the Washington Post, in a “random act of Journalism”, has revealed the detailsabout the origin of the ‘sequester‘, which Obama is currently blaming on the Republicans.
Jack Lew and Obama cooked up the ‘sequester‘. It’s automatically triggered reduction in projected spending, which was to prevent Obama from having to negotiate the issue during the campaign.
Says Woodward: “The president and Lew had this wrong. My extensive reporting for my book “The Price of Politics” shows that the automatic spending cuts were initiated by the White House and were the brainchild of Lew and White House congressional relations chief Rob Nabors — probably the foremost experts on budget issues in the senior ranks of the federal government.Obama personally approved of the plan for Lew and Nabors to propose the sequester to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). They did so at 2:30 p.m. July 27, 2011, according to interviews with two senior White House aides who were directly involved.”
Do click on the paragraph above. You will find out that Bob Woodward is still a good leftie reporter, working for the Washington Post. Hecouldn’t dance to the media tune, because Obama’s lie contradicted what he had already written in his own book.
Woodward still thinks that Obama is right to insist on more taxes and, most particularly taxing the rich, but he’s not going along with the lie that the Republicans invented the ‘sequester’.
By the way, the sequester is puny, not enough reduction in spending, and will not cause the projected disasters because very little money is involved, as a percentage of total spending. Since the sequester is Obama’s idea, it does contain disproportionate reductions in projected military expenditures, when compared to government dependency programs.
“My message to them is simple: No. I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending. There will be no easy off ramps on this one.”
Obama deigned to say a few words to the press on his return from the Florida Golf Outing with the Boys, hence……
Yes indeed, it appears that Obama was vacationing with Reggie Love over the president’s day weekend.
Per an article at Breitbart, a former Bush Whitehouse spokesman believes that the press was cut off throughout most of Obama’s outing so that he might not appear out of touch with the circumstances of the rest of Americans. Also he was supposedly not wanting to offend female supporters by making a public splash of his time spent with Tiger Woods on the golf course, (and Reggie Love), instead of the expected vacation with his family, which was sent off to Colorado on a ski trip.
The Obama administration has sought to save health care funds by downgrading the shootings of Ft. Hood as “workplace violence”.
Though Obama saw fit to kill Maj. Nidal Hasan’s alleged instigator, Anwar al-Awlaki, and his underage son by a drone attack, calling them terrorists, he oddly would not treat the veterans who were killed or wounded in the attack as is customary in the military. Many of them were forced to leave the military as a result of their injuries, but they do not have the usual benefits and medical coverage that would be accorded to wounded veterans.
Some are having to find private physicians to treat their ongoing injuries. Sgt. Kimberly Munley, who was shot three times while confronting Hasan, has been laid off. Her partner Sgt. Mark Todd is the one credited with the five shots which stopped Hasan’s rampage.
Munley is the veteran who was used for an Obama photo-0p, sitting next to Michelle Obama, at the 2010 state of the union address. She now feels betrayed, and let down after Obama’s promise that the victims would be well taken care of.
A lawsuit is in the works against the military, as is a movie about the Ft. Hood shooting. You can learn more about this group which is among the thousands of Obama photo-op “victims” who were promised administrative ‘love’ and federal aid, and were subsequently abandoned. CLICK HERE!
George Zimmerman, who was thrown under the bus by Obama after the Trayvon Martin shooting, had been an Obama supporter, his brother Robert tells us. He campaigned for Obama within his own family. George registered to vote as a Democrat, and as Hispanic.
According to Robert, George felt that Obama was the man to represent a country that was a multicultural melting pot.
Click the top link for a video of the interview in which Robert Zimmerman speaks about his brother, who, unlike many democrats, was definitely not racist.
Elmer (E.T.) Williams is a modern day prophet, verbally flogging Americans for their political sins, and dragging them back to the land of common sense. Check out his Blog. From there you can surf his videos, pick up his books, and tune into “the Doctor of Common Sense” on blogtalkradio.
Like Pharmer, Mr. Williams has concluded that the two dominant political parties are not getting the job done, and he’s entertaining the probability of a third party alternative.
