But why don’t we just go ahead and impeach him and be done with it.
The Obama administration is good at one thing, getting the liberal press to lie to protect it. The latest:
Project Gunwalker is damning. Knowingly this administration allowed weapons to be delivered to the Mexican drug cartels, presumably to further its own gun control agenda. This policy resulted in the death of a US border guard and countless Mexicans. The administration has been stonewalling Representative Darryl Issa’s investigation since the beginning. While the liberal media ignores the story, the Whitehouse goes on counter offensive to destroy the messenger:
The Washington Post has printed a character assassination piece targeting Issa which PJM sources confirm had been shopped around to other news outlets and blogs by the Obama administration since the House Oversight Committee hearings last week.
The administration-authored Post story attempts to claim that Rep. Issa, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform which issued the damning report last week about Gunwalker, had been briefed about the program a year ago and had no objections to it at that time.
The evidence for this claim? There isn’t any.
According to a well-placed source, the hit piece the Post ran had been shopped by the administration to several other news organizations. All passed on it, since there was no credible attribution for the story.
Only the Washington Post would run it.
The best defense is a good offense and a compliant liberal press.
We also learn this week that when the administration took over GM, it was dictating the terms despite the fact that it said it wasn’t. As you may recall,over 20,000 non-union workers lost their pensions in the take-over while the union members lost nothing. Although the White House denied being involved in the decision making, we now know from hearings that took place on Wednesday, that that was a lie.
The key point of the Wednesday hearing was to show that the Obama administration advised GM on how to eliminate the Delphi workers’ pensions. The evidence suggests Geithner’s team played a significant role in that process, despite claims to the contrary.
In 2009 congressional testimony, senior Obama administration official Ron Bloom said the president told the Treasury Department to stay out of the management of these companies and downplayed any administration intervention.
“From the beginning of this process, the President gave the Auto Task Force two clear directions regarding its approach to the auto restructurings,” Bloom said then. “The first was to behave in a commercial manner by ensuring that all stakeholders were treated fairly and received neither more nor less than they would have simply because the government was involved. The second was to refrain from intervening in the day-to-day management of these companies.”
But the emails TheDC obtained show high-ranking Treasury Department officials, including Matthew Feldman of Treasury’s Auto Task Force, corresponding with senior GM officials on how to make certain decisions regarding who was going to win and who was going to lose.
And of course if this administration is involved, we know that the unions win, and everyone else loses.
Last year Congress declined to pass the Dream Act, which would have allowed illegals in school or the military to stay in this country. But this administration apparently doesn’t need Congress to pass laws.
On Friday, the Obama administration issued a memo announcing that federal immigration officials do not have to deport illegal aliens if they are enrolled in any type of education program, if their family members have volunteered for U.S. military service, or even if they are pregnant or nursing.
This new policy of “prosecutorial discretion” was quietly announced on Friday afternoon, and completely ignored by the mainstream press.
Can we impeach the press?
Finally, not an impeachable offense, but a one that breaks my heart.
The President addressing the 10th Mountain Division today at Fort Drum:
“First time I saw 10th Mountain Division, you guys were in southern Iraq. When I went back to visit Afghanistan, you guys were the first ones there. I had the great honor of seeing some of you because a comrade of yours, Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously.”
Wrong Mr. President.
As we all know, SSG Sal Giunta, of the 173rd Airborne, was the first living recipient (2011) of the MOH who fought in Iraq/Afganistan. SFC Jared Monti, 10th Mountain Division, was KIA in Afghanistan in 2006. He was posthumously awarded the MOH by Obama in 2009.
Funny, I bet he remembers that week’s golf score.
