How simple this administration must think our minds. Benghazi, NSA, IRS, EPA and GSA, DOJ, immigration, Obamacare and Egyptian Brotherhood funding scandals and legislative debates have all but disappeared from the news. The conspicuously missing investigations may continue quietly, but appear to be on terminal hold. No Musak calmingly entertains you during the wait for justice. Even Edward Snowden is background noise at this point because he, too, is trouble for this administration.
Anthony Weiner’s wiener shots seem to be the hot topic for today. Can the people of New York trust him to run the city if his own wife can’t trust him to responsibly run his personal life?
News and discussion continues about the acquittal of George Zimmerman and the protests against his trial. How he either got away with murder or had every right to defend himself with deadly force is the lead direction. That will change too when the rest of America is tired of hearing the same back and forth about it. Meanwhile, Washington D.C. gets little attention. That’s exactly the way they want it.
It’s no wonder the White House is constantly attacking Rush Limbaugh, FoxNews, Breitbart and other conservative outlets. They relay information gained from investigative journalists, not the controlled propaganda championed by the main stream media. It’s easier to attack conservatives and call them names than it is to answer their questions. After all, they just gin up phony scandals. If it weren’t for alternative outlets, “We the People” would be completely in the dark regarding governmental affairs.
It’s just another White House/media misdirect, folks. If you’re stupid enough to let it take your interest off the ball, you’re going to strike out again. Right now Eric Holder continues to intimate that there may be a civil rights case brought forth against Zimmerman. Once interest on that front wanes, there will be another “human interest” story surface to keep you from thinking about how this administration is trampling the Constitution.
Yes, it’s all about overstepping the bounds of the office of the President. It started, if you recall, all the way back in 2009 with the czar program. Overseeing the give-away and proper mismanagement of stimulus money started shortly after the presidential inauguration. Your tax dollars paid for the firing of experienced auto executives and placing Obama big money donors in their positions. Steven Rattner became the “car czar”. With Rattner in place, the UAW received tax payer funds as reward for their Obama campaign support. It allowed the union to belay the strangle hold on Chrysler and GM, allowing the companies to use the funds in their coffers to produce automobiles. Bales of the money went into developing the Chevy Volt. How many dozens of those incendiaries are still on the street at a loss of $20,000 +/- each? Only a few hundred were even sold.
Appointing czars, Directors and Cabinet Secretaries without congressional approval is the way of this administration. Building bureaucracies and writing excessive regulations to stifle the job market and destroy businesses are the most useful tools of Obama’s arsenal. Delay, divert, misdirect, obfuscate and move on when no one is looking are all parts of the dictatorial assemblage that is now Washington D.C. Six pm on Friday is the ideal time to release Executive Orders, regulations, and other edicts of compliance because no one is paying attention and probably won’t until Monday. By then it’s old news and, “What difference, at this point, does it make”?
