WHITE HOUSE or “There’s No They’re There”
White House or “There’s No They’re There”
We have entered the most dangerous period of time America has ever known, and our adversaries are taking note.
Men who believed somebody was there in the White House when they called for help died in what Mr. Obama declared this week to be a Republican party, “side show.”
Like a juvenile might do in seeking to deflect criticism after crashing his father’s car, he added, “there’s no there there.”
The sleeping-on-the job and fundraising trips while fighting men were expecting traditional American military backup cannot be lightly blamed upon others in view of the facts now present and actual testimony from then Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.
The daily White House press narration of blame-it-on-anyone but the President alerts an increasingly confident terrorist network that indeed “there’s no they’re there” when it comes to leadership.
And with no one home, potential enemies see the gates to American global interests wide open to attack as they did in Benghazi on 9-11-12. No Trojan horse necessary. They have seen the Obama Administration provide the video-made-them-do-it excuse to simply enter and destroy.
From overseas we find a British view of Mr. Obama in this headline based upon Thursday’s brief press conference:
“During Rose Garden Press conference Obama refuses to apologize for secretly seizing AP phone records, shifts blame to Congress for security lapses, and dodges question about White House IRS knowledge.”
In the body of the article we find these words from the President, “I certainly did not know anything about the IG report before the IG report was leaked to the press,” referring to the growing scandal regarding IRS targeting practices directed toward perceived Obama political opponents.
All of this mounting show of either incompetence or corruption at the highest level begs serious questioning that hopefully an alert media will ask of themselves such as:
If the President is ignorant about everything that goes wrong in his administration, what does he know?
If the President indeed only finds out about scandal or crisis via the press after the fact, who is in charge during the birth of scandal and crisis?
Glaring evidence found in 100 damning emails released earlier from the White House this week – out of over 25,000 according to US Congressman Jason Chaffetz – coupled with last week’s courageous congressional testimony of three high ranking State Department whistleblower eyewitness accounts belie Mr. Obama’s statement this week of, “Nobody understood exactly what was taking place during the course of those first few days.”
What the third US President, John Adams, reminded the arrogant and proud applies here, “Facts are stubborn things.”
The real side show is the duplicitous dance of DC dilatants who revel in their clever political reportage, but can only do the salsa around their version of facts by repeating, “we are still uncovering facts,” as if that should satisfy the press and public at large.
Daring the IRS to now attack those who, with boldness, quote the founding fathers and cite the constitution in defense of political points of view, we hear an echo from Thomas Jefferson in a letter to a friend:
“The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so that the second will not become the legalized version of the first.”
As we are finding in three brewing Obama administration scandals, there is a lot of “they’re there.”
