The Obama admin’s current national security “priorities” – summed up in one tweet

Posted by: ST on May 26, 2013 at 1:08 pm

Fox News’ Martha MacCallum gets right to the heart of the matter – short, sweet, to the point (via Twitchy Team):


Any questions? Let’s all say a little prayer that Ms. MacCallum does not become a target of Obama’s DOJ – or the IRS – herself.

On a related note, the Atlantic Wire’s Connor Simpson writes about how a New York Times reporter was recently targeted by Obama’s DOJ, too – referencing a Times article on the matter that talks about just how “wide the net” is that the DOJ is casting on journalists (hat tip). William Teach at the Pirate’s Cove blog wonders about the potential for a chilling effect this may have on both MSM journalists and government officials going forward:

What all this does is create a chill on media contact. Government employees will clam up even when there is no threat. And it will make the Press worried that The Government will come after them if they publish a story. This is intimidation. Let’s not forget how the Obama admin treats many reporters which are critical and publish unflattering stories. Sharyl Attkinson is the poster child for how the Obama admin abuses reporters. The O admin is saying “toe the line, do what we tell you, or we’re coming after you”, which may not violate the letter of the 1st Amendment, but surely violates the spirit.

The question for The Press now is “do you continue to act mostly like little lapdogs, or do you all refuse to be intimidated and finally decide to do you job in keeping government honest?”

Decisions, decisions …

Obama's lapdogs

”Change” coming …?

    To paraphrase Nazi Pelosi’s vapid observation, “You have to re-elect Obhammud to find out what’s in him.”

    So that’s the thanks the top Liberal propaganda rag, the NYT, gets for “carrying the water” for Obama all these years – having their journalists’ civil rights violated by Obama and his DOJ! Who would have known the Frankenstein they created would turn on them?

    Hopefully, there are some honest Federal employees that are brave enough to come forward as “whistleblowers” to expose all of the things this Administration is doing to Americans like the lady at True the Vote where the IRS, FBI, EPA, and OSHA all came after her. I believe this Administration is doing the same thing to many Americans at both the individual and the business level.

    We have Chicago Thugs and Weather Underground folks in power. I will never forget the undercover FBI agent’s testimony that Bill Ayers had indicated if the Weather Underground prevailed, they would send unbelievers to retraining camps and those that proved to be not trainable would be killed. He went on to indicate they could have to kill up to 30-35 million Americans.

    Heavens to Betsy, what’s the problem here? The Chicago Thuggocracy has to yank the chain of the slobbering lovers every once in a while or they might get the idea that when something important DOES come up (think F&F, Benghazi, IRS, Sebeliusgate, or any number of other extra-lagal capers by this WH) it is their responsibility to report it!

    And by going to the heart of the matter, showing the COAM (Cover Obama’s Arse Media) that they are still at the beck and call of the top thugs is the right thing to do. Nothing says “Stay in line or you’re dead, rancid meat” like a little fear. Or a lot, as the case may be.

    “…or any number of other extra-lagal legal capers…”

    I really shouldn’t try typing before my Sunday afternoon nap…
