Phony Scandals?

Aug 04 2013

President Obama has made it clear that he thinks the scandals plaguing his administration are phony. But what if the scandals are real, but it’s the investigations of them that are phony?... That’s next…Next month will mark the one-year anniversary of the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that resulted in the murders of four heroic Americans. And yet, we still don’t know what the President was doing that night, why the security was so botched, why nobody was sent to help, and who was behind the attack. We sent the FBI, but they claim to be stymied, and there have been no arrests. Maybe they should turn on CNN. Their reporter Arwa Damon went to Benghazi, found one of the lead suspects the FBI can’t seem to locate, and got him to sit down for a 2-hour interview. By the way, he told her he’s never been contacted by the FBI or the Libyan government. CNN didn’t say when the interview will air. But no matter how long that takes, I’d bet he still won’t have been brought in for questioning.

Speaking of all those phony scandals, the one involving the IRS just took the beaten path. National Review Online has seen emails obtained by the House Ways and Means Committee. They show that on at least one occasion, an attorney for the Federal Election Commission contacted IRS official Lois “I take the Fifth” Lerner, to obtain confidential tax information on a conservative group, and used it to recommend prosecuting them for violating campaign finance laws. It would appear that the targeting of conservative groups by misusing their tax records extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, as well. Just how many agencies in that alphabet soup in DC are going to have access to our private records to harass us? And is there still anybody left who thinks the IRS can be trusted with our medical records?

    seems like the scandals are always phony when they point at certain persons! this guy and his crew are constantly being caught in lie after lie , BUT nothing is done about it! the scariest part of all of this is not just his highness and the crew of crooks, but rather that there are still people who defend what he does ( or does not do ) ! we have more higher educated people than ever in the history of the UNITED STATES... but they seem to be ..... not as smart as one would think . why is that? the schools and teachers? or people too smart to look at the truth ... or maybe not knowing what the TRUTH actually means ?

    Tonight's show on where are the jobs??
    Mike Rowe, spot on,

    Civil Rights attorney doesn't have a clue about jobs or the economy in general. Her statement that "businesses owe works more money, because the worker has a family and can't live on minimum wage is idiotic!! Maybe the worker should have thought about that before they had a family. It's not an employer's responsibility to pay them a certain dollar amount because they have a family!! Like all union sympathizers, she doesn't have clue about ROI, risk, productivity and other factors a business person has to take into consideration when they start a business!
    If she is really sympathetic to the working class, she should go out and start a business that produces a product. Then she can pay wages beyond what the consumer is willing to pay for the product and or service and see how long she stays in business!! But instead, she'd rather make a living suing the very people that create the jobs in the first place!!

    Much easier than working for a living!!

    When a person's unemployment runs out..government counts it as a lower unemployment rate.Not true , what it shows is the rate at which they are paying claims. Not the unemployment rate.
