Emails reveal Justice Dept. regularly enlists Media Matters to spin press « » Print The Daily Caller.

The Daily Caller obtained emails between the Obama Dept. of Justice public affairs director, Tracy Schmaler and the folks Media Matters, by means of a FOIA request.
Schmaler worked with Jeremy Holden at Media matters on means to attack the reporters covering the New Black Panther voter intimidation case as well as the DOJ employees who resigned in protest. Also covered are attempts to counteract coverage of the Fast and Furious operation, which caused the deaths of hundreds of Mexican civilians, and at least two U.S. citizens.
Emails obtained by the Daily Caller are embedded below.

Daily Caller FOIA – DOJ and Media Matters

FINALLY: House committee schedules Contempt Vote against Eric Holder

House committee schedules contempt vote against Holder – Political Hotsheet – CBS News.

Pharmer has been waiting a long time for the House to begin proceedings against Attorney General Eric Holder, for his refusal to cooperate with their investigation of the gun running of the Fast and Furious operation in Mexico.  Possibly Holder’s ridiculous  claim, that emails mentioning Fast and Furious were not about Fast and Furious, was the tipping point.

The U.S. government sent guns to Mexico in order to raise controversy about their use by drug cartels, and use this as an excuse to undermine our  Second Amendment rights.

Use of Fast and Furious supplied weapons is connected to  many deaths including hundreds of Mexican citizens outside of the cartels, and U.S. border and ICE agents.

The  executive branch of government has assisted the killings by Mexican drug cartels in order to whip up antipathy towards American gun owners.

Congressional action against   Eric Holder  is long overdue.


Kagan to Tribe on Day Obamacare Passed: ‘I Hear They Have the Votes, Larry!! Simply Amazing.’ |

Kagan to Tribe on Day Obamacare Passed: ‘I Hear They Have the Votes, Larry!! Simply Amazing.’ |

Emails from Justice Elena Kagan  to Harvard’s Laurence Tribe contain  written evidence that she is not neutral on the issue of Obamacare, and was very happy that it passed.

Kagan is being asked to recuse herself from the Supreme Court decision on the constitutionality of Obamacare, particularly a government requirement that people have to purchase health care insurance.

Despite the evidence, Neither Tribe nor Kagan felt that there is any reason for people to doubt her impartiality, per their written answers to CBS questions on the matter.



Jerking the Old Media Around

Time’s Steinmetz Grouses About Way Alaska Governor Released Palin E-mails |

Ken Shepherd over at Newsbusters noticed some whining from the old media that Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell dumped Sarah Palin’s emails on them in printed form.

Call a Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaambulance !

There’s the suggestion that Parnell did it just to jerk the Palin hating journalists around.    If so, that’s hilarious.

But another reason is that electronic redactions sometimes don’t work.   In various programs you can copy paste a redacted document and the printed stuff under the electronically produced black lines will reappear again.

Gawker comments on Apple/ATT security breach

Apple’s Worst Security Breach: 114,000 iPad Owners Exposed.

No claims from here of any expertise in hacking, but ATT and Apple have mud on their faces.   The rich and famous early adopters of the 3 G iPad/phone will be PMS-ing when they understand that some of their personal information has been made available to the public.

The scoop from above comes from the folks at Gawker, and this tech tabloid feature is worth the read.

And, a little bit about those Gawker guys, who ribbed Rush Limbaugh on the occasion of his  4th wedding this past week. (He’s still honeymooning).

They are paradoxical, like so many other techies.   There is an orderliness to the techie mind which allows the logic of programming.    However, it seems that every brain needs a little  perverse pleasure, and this is provided to many techies through dabbling in leftist politics and feel good ideology.

There has to be at least some disorder in every brain, it seems.

The folks at Gawker like to abuse Rush Limbaugh, and he seems to take it in fairly good humor.  He likes their scoops on the latest electronic  and programmable toys, to which he remains  addicted.
