The Bureau turned its back on its own traditions of floating above partisan politics in the pursuit of justice.
One thing’s a given when it comes to American politics…it’s pretty predictable..
The Hillary Clinton email debacle…Benghazi….her cavalier attitude about national security…None of it seems to matter. This is disturbingly sad. Especially when it should matter A LOT!.. If you take the time to think about it, she is in no way acceptable as president of the United States!
With the exception of the email scandal, the media has maintained a “ho-hum” attitude about her dubious tenure as secretary of state. Four Americans DIED needlessly in Benghazi. It was MORE than obvious she and Barack Obama covered up incompetence in the name of political expediency. Yet, as she indignantly sat before a Congressional committee, she had the unmitigated GALL to dismiss the inquiry as a witch hunt (an appropriate term for her) instead of owning up to the failures of her department. That, along with the flimsy excuse of some video that the world has never seen as the cause for the attacks, should have outraged every citizen of this nation. Yet, her behavior and mismanagement, is excused and exempted. That’s the way it’s always played out for the Clintons. And, despite evidence to the contrary, so will the email scandal. Mrs. Clinton was clearly impervious and careless when it came to the national security of the United States. Criminal negligence is so obvious here. I would like to think the guidelines for the operations of the U.S. State Department are pretty clear! Nevertheless, she’s given a pass.
It’s been noted that you can kiss accountability goodbye with Hillary Clinton in the White House. Some could argue, that’s always been the case. But, never before has it been staring us in the face as we turn a blind eye. Sad…very, very..sad….
They say “the more things change, the more they stay the same”…
That is never more true than it is in American politics. With an important election a bit more than a month away, you’d certainly be unaware if it was left to the Republican party to get the word out.
With the Senate up for grabs, as well as important governorships across the nation, the political capital to be gained is significant. At least, that’s what sensible thought tells you.
The Republican party has been practically silent in its response to the OBVIOUS vulnerability of Democrats across the nation. I find myself perplexed, yet not surprised. Republicans have been basically neutered since Barack Obama took office. We’re all aware of that. However, it would certainly be a logical conclusion they COULD offer a forceful alternative, should they choose to do so.
Take a look around you. Things ARE not going well on any front…socially, economically. Not to mention our relationships abroad.
Yet, we get…nothing…It’s frustrating when it’s so plain to see the damage inflicted upon this country by the political left and the Democrats! No Republican candidate has stepped forward to point out the clarity of this situation. The confounding fact is this stuff is NOT that difficult to grasp! The lunacy of the Obama administration, coupled with COMPLETE incompetence, continues unchecked!
Witness the utter buffoonery displayed by Secretary of State, John Kerry, testifying before a Senate committee on the administration’s efforts to combat the Isis/Isil threat in the middle east.. Obviously, the moronic Kerry is more concerned with Code Pink protestors than the seriousness of the this threat..
What the hell?!!!….
It’s more than obvious the important matter here is to protect the Obama administration through the requisite pandering. THAT is priority number 1! Fortunately, there are exceptions to the GOP’s stance. Tennessee’s Senator Corker (R) lent some common sense to the proceedings….
But, as is true to form, you have MORONS like California’s Barbara Boxer(D) throwing in her nonsense…
Again, we ALL know where the priorities lie for Senator Boxer, and other Democrats!
The Republican party leadership has made the conscious decision to ignore the sheer stupidity and selfishness exemplified by the Obama administration and their Democrat allies. It’s disheartening to witness as the nation continues to falter. We’ve witnessed the level of this idiocy on the rise for nearly 6 years…
Unless the discouragement and frustration reaches the point where enough of the voters are fed up, nothing will change. And it’s a fact that we are NOT going to find our concerns taken seriously by either party in Washington. That point is inarguable.
Though I’ve remiss in keeping this page current, I can see not much has changed in several weeks..
Barack Obama is STILL lying to the American people..The Democrats are DESPERATE for something…ANYTHING..to divert the public’s attention away from the disastrous, deplorable record they have on the issues that REALLY matter…and the media is STILL making sure to go out of its way to cover for both!
Obamacare slowly sinks in as Americans grapple with WHAT it is..and HOW it works. I don’t foresee some massive bombshell with it that will lead to massive anger. It’s going to be one of those things that, as word spreads, more and more will realize what a gigantic pain in the ass it will be dealing with your personal healthcare.The fact that the president LIED about it, along with the Democrats, is NOT going to help matters, as far as their electoral chances. But, on the other hand, we’re talking about a nation that elected Barack Obama, not once, but TWICE! So, I’m hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.
The administration’s indifference and continuous ‘CYA’ mode when it comes to what happened in Benghazi could lead to more unsettling discoveries, pending a Congressional investigation. But, don’t expect much to come of it, no matter how obviously incompetent the Obama White House is. The press would NEVER allow that to happen!
And now we have the doomsday scenario floated by the administration when it comes to climate change. Basically, if we don’t STOP RIGHT NOW, WE’RE DEAD! PERIOD! That’s what they’d like you to believe. It’s all part of the grand strategic move to divert attention away from issues like the economy..jobs..debt. These require SERIOUS consideration and DIFFICULT decisions. But President Obama and the Democrats lack the fortitude and courage to make these decisions. So they continue with the divert and distract tactic. But with a record number of Americans not working, I’m not so sure of their luck this time around.
Let’s face it, folks. We were duped in 2008 and again in 2012. Well, I wasn’t..at least not in the last election. The majority of voters, many who lack basic common sense, were lead down the primrose path by lies and promises from a man most of us never heard of! It’s just that simple. He was considered a viable, attractive alternative and propped up by a national political force as the answer to our woes. Instead, we got a deceitful, incompetent, arrogant, and vindictive man, whose efforts have left us with what you see around you today. Admittedly, the opposition lacked much backbone…over fears of racism and what have you. But that’s no excuse. We are in dire need of someone who is NOT afraid to stand up and tell the truth. The nation needs that terribly. So far, those are few and far between.
In the meantime, we’re left with a struggling economy, a diminished presence on the national stage, and a frustrated, exhausted citizenry. Think about it as you see story after story in the media and you realize how utterly ridiculous and STUPID it all is! I’m hoping 2014 will see more of us coming to our senses. HOPING, mind you. America has failed itself time and again in the past. Maybe this time will be different. We shall see!
I think we all know the Obama presidency has NOT been what many Americans had hoped for. Whether they will admit that or not…well, that’s another question.
The administration has taken its tired responses from the Democrat playbook for years now. Of course, there is a predominate favorite that’s used. Tried and true, it’s utilized time and again, no matter what a weak, baseless defense it is….
The American people have real concerns and Barack Obama has been completely unable and unwilling to offer any sense of authority…any show of capability..any concerted effort beyond that which wins him political points…such as they are…
I thought I’d review some issues that have been quite egregious and offer the president a chance to respond…
Mr. President, our government continues to mount debt at a breakneck pace and there seems to be no willingness to tackle out of control spending. It’s very frightening for our nation…wouldn’t you agree?
Mr. President, the IRS targeting of select groups is something that’s very disturbing and unsettling to us..and we feel nothing is really being done about it…
Mr. President, Benghazi was obviously more than what your administration told us and we feel you’re trying to cover up what really happened….
Mr. President, Obamcare..excuse me, the affordable care act, is not what most Americans want or expected…
Mr. president, we don’t like what’s been going on with the NSA and the phone line tapping at the A.P…
Mr. President, we really don’t like the idea of the federal government become so involved in birth control access and all of that..it seems that is something the vast majority of individuals could decide and obtain for themselves..
Mr. President, illegal immigration is out of control and a major strain on our economy…despite the theory that those workers are needed for supposed jobs Americans won’t do…
Speaking of jobs, Mr. President…unemployment is still significant…especially with so many leaving the workforce and your administration has yet to focus on policies to encourage hiring….
Mr. President, your attempts to frame “wage inequality”, that you say hinders women in the workplace, is not really based upon all of the factors which would normally be included before your administration drafts a policy…
Well, we can see we’re really not getting anywhere with you….You should know, sir, that come the 2014 midterms, it’s looking like the Democrats are facing quite an obstacle in their arrogance and ineptitude, when it comes to trust and truth…
There you have it folks! Straight from the president himself… I think we ALL know where we stand, when it comes to what lies ahead with Barack Obama in the White House…
I can’t think of a better occassion than April Fools day to review some of the highlights of endless laundry list of lies courtesy of Barack Obama…
Our nation continues to suffer under what passes for guidance under undoubtedly one of the worse administrations in American history. Divisive, malicious, and vindictive…yet utterly incompetent. How they manage to merge those two is beyond me!……..
“We will close the detention camp in Guantanamo Bay…”
“Today I’m pledging to cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term in office…”
“As soon as we’re out of this recession, we’ve got to get serious about starting to live within our means!….”
“We agree on reforms that will reduce the costs of healthcare. Families will save on their premiums..”
“We’ve got shovel-ready projects all across the country…”
“I don’t take a dime of their (lobbyists) money, and when I am president they won’t find a job in my White House!”
“I pledge to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution..”
“If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that! Somebody else made that happen!”
“Eighty percent of Americans support including higher taxes as part of the debt ceiling deal…”
“If you like your healthcare plan, you will be able to keep your healthcare plan! Period!”…
BIG, BIG, BIG, April Fool!
Face it, America….you continue to fall prey to lie after lie after lie.. And, as it has been noted, THIS isn’t politics as usual, the give and take, back and forth…this administration has managed, and continues to do so, to inflict damage upon the well being of this nation, the likes we’ve never seen….and THAT is no APRIL FOOL!
Today’s entry is short, sweet, and to the point.
I find myself asking the title question every day! I find it beyond simple comprehension how ANY clear thinking, sensible person could listen, let alone WATCH, the senseless, moronic musings of the talking heads of “progressive” media. I find their mindless, detached sensationalism to be just that..sensational! And not in a productive manner. So, the next time you wonder how and why things are the way they are under the Obama administration, you can thank these individuals, among many others. Their combined efforts, along with a clueless, hapless president, have created the crumbling, weary, dysfunctional society you see around you. Will it ever end? Possibly. Likely? Not any time soon….
