One might ask, as Obama did with regard to the investigation (or lack thereof) into the Ukraine plane crash, and without any apparent sense of irony:
What exactly are they trying to hide?
We’re having some fun with a photo recently touted by the White House, in light of comments by Joan Rivers. I don’t know about you, but I’m sick to death of these staged “iconic” photographs, which resemble propaganda from communist regimes like North Korea or China.
Is this the beginning of the unraveling of the IRS scandal? Finally someone takes the side of the People. The IRS must explain under oath how it “lost” Lois Lerner’s email. In addition, a federal judge has appointed a “federal magistrate” to investigate whether any of her email can be recovered. Continue reading
The IRS and Lois Lerner blame “dated technology” for the computer crash that they unbelievably, even laughably, claim was responsible for the loss of Lerner’s email from 2009 through the middle of 2011, the crucial period of time during which any conspiracy to target Tea Party groups would have been hatched and carried out. Targeting began in 2010. [emphasis added to quotes]
“Frankly, these are the critical years of the targeting of conservative groups that could explain who knew what when, and what, if any, coordination there was between agencies,” said Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) in a statement. “Instead, because of this loss of documents, we are conveniently left to believe that Lois Lerner acted alone.”
We’ve been having fun lately, comparing photos of various Indonesian personages to our current president. See here, here and here, for examples. The photo at the top of this post is said to be of Barry Soetoro (aka Barack Hussein Obama II, circled) in 1969 or 1970, depending upon which source you read. As captioned by the Washington Post, the photo was taken at a graduation ceremony at SDN Menteng 1, the Muslim public school that Obama attended while he lived in Indonesia. Our post at this link examines Obama’s numerous schools and teachers, for more context.
This weekend we were treated to a puff piece by PARADE that told us all about how hard Mr. and Mrs. Barack Obama “struggled” when they worked menial minimum-wage jobs while growing up and pinched pennies to support themselves and their two young children after they both graduated from law school. It’s almost as if the authors (Lynn Sherr and Maggie Murphy) did no fact checking but accepted the Obama narrative as presented to them.
