Governor Jay Nixon’s Disgraceful Rush To Judgement (Video)

Now I know why Obama said he wouldn’t “pre-judge” the Ferguson situation. He’s got his stooge, Governor Jay Nixon doing it for him.

Tuesday night he announced that  “a vigorous prosecution must now be pursued.”

“The democratically elected St. Louis County prosecutor and the Attorney General of the United States, each have a job to do,” he said.

This is eerily reminiscent of the time the president inappropriately “pre-judged” the IRS targeting scandal. “Not a smidgen of corruption? How would you know, as there’s still an ongoing investigation – unless some kind of fix is in?

Because toxic racial politics help Democrats at the ballot box, and this is an election year, someone is about to get railroaded big-time by the criminal conspiracy known as the Democrat party.

There is no other explanation for the outrageous statement made by Governor Jay Nixon Tuesday night, calling for “a vigorous prosecution” of the officer involved in the Michael Brown shooting before the investigation has been completed, the incident report has been publicized, and the toxicology report has come back.

Megyn Kelly asked Ferguson‬ Mayor James Knowles if he believes that the governor has made up his mind about the case.

“It sounds like it,” said Knowles. “That’s unfortunate, because Governor Nixon was our attorney general for 16 years, so, I would assume at this point he understands and knows what the process is.”

Kelly also had on the president of the Missouri Fraternal Order Of Police, Sgt. Kevin Ahlbrand what he thought about the fact that the governor is seeking “not just justice – but justice for Michael Brown.” 

He answered that he was “very disappointed to hear those words coming from Governor Jay Nixon. We welcome a vigorous investigation. Unfortunately, justice needs to go both ways,”   he said.

Later, she  had on former Justice Dept lawyer,  J. Christian Adams who wrote the book, Injustice, on the Holder DOJ. Adams had plenty to say about Holder’s influence in Ferguson – which said would be “toxic.”

“This is an Atty General who has carried around in his wallet for thirty years, a quote that says he shares common cause with the black criminal,” Adams declared, to Kelly’s shocked surprise. “What?!” she said in response.

Adams continued to say that Holder’s Civil Rights Dept has been “engaged in a war against police departments.”

“Members of the FOP know this already about Eric Holder.  They take the side of the lawless against the law abiding citizen, and we’re going to see that play out in Missouri.”

When Kelly read the outrageous race-baiting statement of a local  black politician, he said, “it’s a new America we’re living in, Megyn – it’s so toxic. It’s so rotted – it’s so dangerous. America has the greatest system of law and justice the world has ever seen. So what if this prosecutor’s father was killed by a black man.   This is part of this effort to make everything about race. The entire justice system they want you to believe is rigged on the basis of race. It’s toxic – it’s evil. It’s part of a coordinated strategy to undermine the foundations of law in this country.”

Kelly repeated her shock that the Governor made a statement prejudging the investigation. “Can you believe that,” she asked incredulously. “What is he doing?!”

Don’t expect Governor Nixon to behave with anything like honor or dignity in this mess. He has a history of abusing his prosecutorial power for political reasons when he was Missouri’s Attorney General.

Kansas City writer and journalist Jack Cashill has the full story on Nixon’s “War on Terror”, here. 

It has to do with him going after and throwing the book at a group of harmless Constitutionalists  – including a completely clueless 22 year old female, who was only at the pot-luck meeting because of her boyfriend.  One of them filed a lien against a  Judge because of what he perceived was abuse of his authority. They were all subsequently arrested for “harassing the judge.” The whole thing was a grotesque travesty of justice.

But left wing fantasies about right wing domestic terrorists were in vogue during the Clinton years, (as they are now) and Nixon was eyeing a Senate seat so he got his “terrorists.”

UPDATE: 

This could be a game-changer via Conservative Tree-House: 

A local Saint Louis radio station is reporting that Dorian Johnson has recanted his prior media espousals and now asserts that he and Mike Brown did indeed engage in a physical confrontation with Officer Darren Wilson.  As a consequence the same Radio Station is asserting the local prosecutor essentially advises it’s doubtful charges would be filed.

The Treehouse reports that Grand Jury charges are “unlikely”, but a Special Prosecutor may be assigned, anyway.

Holder Decries Release Of “Sensitive Information” In Michael Brown Case (Video)

And by “sensitive information”, he  means – the liqueur store robbery surveillance video – the suppression of which allowed the false “gentle giant” narrative to take hold.

This Attorney General is a piece of work, isn’t he?

Attorney General Eric Holder released the following statement Monday following his briefing of President Obama on the latest developments in the federal civil rights investigation in Ferguson, Missouri:

“As I informed the President this afternoon, the full resources of the Department of Justice are being committed to our federal civil rights investigation into the death of Michael Brown.

“During the day today, more than 40 FBI agents continued their canvassing of the neighborhood where Michael Brown was shot. As a result of this investigative work, several new interviews have already been conducted.

“Moreover, at my direction, an additional medical examination is being performed on the body of Michael Brown. This autopsy is being performed today by one of the most experienced medical examiners in the United States military. I am confident this additional autopsy will be thorough and aid in our investigation.

“In addition to updating the President on these developments, I informed him of my plan to personally travel to Ferguson Wednesday. I intend to meet with FBI investigators, and prosecutors on the ground from the Civil Rights Division and U.S. Attorney’s Office officials about the ongoing investigation.

“I realize there is tremendous interest in the facts of the incident that led to Michael Brown’s death, but I ask for the public’s patience as we conduct this investigation. The selective release of sensitive information that we have seen in this case so far is troubling to me. No matter how others pursue their own separate inquiries, the Justice Department is resolved to preserve the integrity of its investigation. This is a critical step in restoring trust between law enforcement and the community, not just in Ferguson, but beyond.

On Monday night’s “Kelly File”, Megyn Kelly had on Tom Dupree, former Deputy Assistant Attorney General during the Bush administration, to comment on Holder’s handling of the case.

He said, “it’s interesting that Holder has so personally injected himself into this case – not only in trying to suppress the release of this video – but also in criticizing it – it’s  very carefully camouflaged criticism – but it’s criticism nonetheless. In Holder’s view, the police shouldn’t have released that videotape.”

Kelly asked him what he thought about the fact that Holder has sent FIFTY FBI agents to investigate “this one case.”

Dupree said, “it’s extraordinary Megyn. There’s no other word for it – I’ve never seen anything like this. A single victim – fifty FBI agents flying in from Washington and other destinations – all coming to interview people within a very small neighborhood.” He added, “I think they want to insulate themselves from any possible criticism that they haven’t put all the resourses of the Federal Government and the DOJ on the field to – in their view – bring the perpetrator to justice.”

Bowe Bergdahl Returns To Active Duty (Video)

A lot of people – including Bergdahl’s former platoon mates- had called for Bowe Bergdahl to be court martialed for desertion, but while the Army “investigates” his 2009 disappearance from an outpost in Afghanistan, he has been assigned what will likely be a desk job at Fort Sam Houston in Texas.
Via NBC News:

Off duty, Bergdahl will be free to leave base and go where he wants without a military or medical escort. Army officials stressed that there are no plans for the military to assign media officers to him or take interview requests for him. It was not clear whether he will be under orders not to talk to the press.

For the first time, Bergdahl will be questioned by military officials. An initial investigation, now classified, determined that he walked away from the outpost.

On Fox News, Steven Hayes expressed surprised that Bergdahl’s reintegration into the Army happened this quickly and while the current investigation is still ongoing.

As of July 5th, the soldiers who served with Bergdahl had not been contacted by military investigators .

“There’s only a handful of us who were actually there and we haven’t been contacted yet,” former Army Sgt. Evan Buetow told FoxNews.com. “I don’t really know how in-depth they’re trying to get here. I thought we’d be some of the people they’d call. I think they have their mind made up already on what they want people to know.”

I suspect that Bergdahl is being allowed to roam around and be interviewed without media handlers because he has been coached very well on how to handle media inquiries. While pundits like Charles Krauthamer were voicing concerns about possible witness tampering due to the secrecy surrounding Bergdahl’s stay in Germany following his release,  Bergdahl’s father was telegraphing to his son that a “very devoted”, “hand-picked” team would be giving him “instructions.”

“Bowe, when you hear this — and eventually you will hear this — you have a very devoted team around you right now in Germany,” said Bob Bergdahl during a press conference on June 1. “Listen to their instructions. We sent them. These are handpicked people. We’re on first-name basis with these people. They are true, they know what they’re doing, they’re here to help you, and they have our great gratitude.”

The military went through great lengths to hush up Bergdahl’s desertion – including compelling members of his unit to sign non-disclosure agreements about what they knew.

On June 2, two of  Bergdahl’s former platoon members, Cody Full and Gerald Sutton appeared on The Kelly File to expose the truth about his desertion and push for him to be held accountable.

Megyn Kelly asked Sutton why he thought Americans should be paying attention to whether Bowe Bergdahl was a deserter. Sutton replied, “well, I just don’t want to see him hailed as a hero and I want him to face the consequences of his own actions, and possibly face a court martial for desertion.”

Issa Subpoenas IRS Commissioner – IRS Required By Law To Keep Records of all Agency Emails

The Regime’s “dog ate my homework” excuse for losing 24,000 of 67,000 of Lois Lerner’s emails sent between 2009 and 2011 — ain’t gonna cut it.

Via the Daily Caller:

“The [Federal Records Act] requires agencies to make and preserve records of agency decisions, policies, and essential  transactions and to take steps to safeguard against the loss of agency records,” said House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, who subpoenaed IRS Commissioner John Koskinen Monday.

The IRS’s own definition of the Federal Records Act makes clear that emails must be saved and documented, according to an instructional page for employees on the IRS website.

“The Federal Records Act applies to email records just as it does to records you create using other media,” according to the IRS. “Emails are records when they are: Created or received in the transaction of agency business. Appropriate for preservation as evidence of the government’s function and activities; or Valuable because of the information they contain.”

“If you create or receive email messages during the course of your daily work, you are responsible for ensuring that you manage them properly,” according to the IRS. “The Treasury Department’s current email policy requires emails and attachments that meet the definition of a federal record be added to the organization’s files by printing them (including the essential transmission data) and filing them with related paper records. If transmission and receipt data are not printed by the email system, annotate the paper copy.”

Obviously, the White House is deeply involved in the IRS scandal-  Obama and his flunkies have made that abundantly clear with their ongoing efforts to poo-poo and controversialize a legitimate investigation into IRS malfeasance.

Josh Earnest deployed the Regime’s tried and true “conspiracy theory” defense on reporters aboard Air Force One, yesterday. This is how they (as Sharyl Attkisson so aptly put it) “controversialize” a story that’s damaging to the Regime. Read closely.

Asked by a reporter aboard Air Force One whether he thought the technical glitch was in fact a “reasonable explanation,” Earnest, the incoming press secretary, was at first dismissive.

“You’ve never heard of a computer crashing before?” Earnest asked.

Regime: “Move on, you guys, nothing to see, here.”

When pressed that emails are stored on servers and not hard drives, Earnest gave a more detailed response, including attacking Republicans in Congress.

“I think it’s entirely reasonable because it’s the truth and it’s a fact,” Earnest said. “And speculation otherwise I think is indicative of conspiracies that are propagated in a way that left people with a disinformation about exactly what occurred.”

Regime: “Do you want to align yourselves with tea party conspiracy theorists?” Reporters’ expected response: “Oh God, no.”

Earnest said the IRS provided 67,000 emails to and from Lerner to congressional committees. He said this included emails during the period of time that the IRS said the crash included.

“So a good-faith effort has been made by the IRS to cooperate with congressional oversight,” Earnest continued. “The far-fetched skepticism expressed by some Republican members of Congress is not at all surprising and not particularly believable.”

Actually, it’s Josh Earnest’s pathetic spin that isn’t believable.

Via Communities Digital News, here’s Charles Krauthammer’s reaction to that on Special Report, Monday night.

Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer reminded viewers that one of the articles of impeachment brought against President Richard Nixon was the abuse of the IRS to pursue political enemies. A missing 18 ½ minutes of audio on Richard Nixon’s Watergate-era tapes versus 26 months of emails? “This is a high crime, this is not a triviality,” Krauthammer warned.

National Journal columnist Ron Fournier, who has, for the most part, been pretty supportive of the Obama administration had this sobering response: “Josh’s statement, with all due respect, is insulting to my intelligence — it really makes me angry. The reason there’s questions about this is because they haven’t answered the questions. The fact of the matter is that, we don’t know the facts, we don’t know if anybody is guilty here or not, but we do know that one of the most pernicious things our government can do is use the IRS to come after us.”

Obama White House is losing many of his liberal supporters because they can no longer defend him and retain any degree of self-respect. That leaves the hard left and the lofo default libs still in his camp.

Meanwhile, on another scandal front that the Regime has tried hard to controversialize: CNN Poll: 61% Say Obama Admin Has Been “Dishonest” With Details Of Benghazi Terror Attack…

(CNN) – Six in 10 Americans are dissatisfied with the way the Obama administration has handled the deadly terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, a new poll shows.

The CNN/ORC International poll released on Monday indicates only 37% are satisfied with the administration’s response to the September 2012 assault that killed four Americans, including the ambassador to Libya. [...]

Sixty-one percent of Americans surveyed think the administration has generally been dishonest in providing information about Benghazi in the aftermath of the attack.

The truth is finally catching up to this criminal cartel of a White House.

With the public becoming more aware of the Regime’s ongoing corruption and lawlessness, can the political remedy of impeachment finally become a reality?

We really need to get this guy out of there before he does any more damage to this country. I don’t care if that means the simpleton Biden becomes president – anything is better than this malignant tumor that’s been plaguing the nation for five and a half God-awful years in the person of Barack Hussein Obama.

UPDATE:

This is so brazen…

Via NRO: 

It’s not just Lois Lerner’s e-mails. The Internal Revenue Service says it can’t produce e-mails from six more employees involved in the targeting of conservative groups, according to two Republicans investigating the scandal.

The IRS told Ways and Means chairman Dave Camp and subcommittee chairman Charles Boustany that computer crashes resulted in additional lost e-mails, including from Nikole Flax, the chief of staff to former IRS commissioner Steven Miller, who was fired in the wake of the targeting scandal.

The revelation about Lerner’s e-mails rekindled the scandal and today’s news has further inflamed Republicans. Camp and Boustany are now demanding a special prosecutor to investigate “every angle” of the targeting. They expressed particular outrage that the agency has known since February that it would not be able to produce the e-mails requested by the committee yet did not apprise the committee of that fact, and they charged in a statement that the IRS is attempting to “cover up the fact that it convenient lost key documents in the investigation.”

Ace says: “Because it’s politically chancey to even mention Impeachment, Obama is now basically daring the GOP to impeach him.”

I say, we take him up on the dare. I’ve had it with him, and so have most sentient beings.

UPDATE:

CBS News: Attkisson On Missing IRS Documents: If The Emails Really Are Lost, ‘That’s Quite A Story In Itself’

This is from a radio interview with Philadelphia talk show host Dom Giordano:

“These emails are not stored on a signal server or a single computer, so if there were a crash of a hard drive or some sort of system failure, they would still be retrievable. According to [John] Koskinen, the IRS Commissioner at the time, he told Congress that emails were stored offsite. That jives with people who said emails were backed up daily. There is a responsibility on the part of government officials to retain the data, make sure that is and can’t be lost in the system. If it’s true that the emails are lost, that’s quite a story in itself,” she said.

She thinks Congress should act fast to investigate if anyone inside the IRS is attempting to hide or destroy the emails.

“I would call in certain officials. Let’s assume there could have been some mischief committed — before they have time to get their stories straight and fix things up, I would get them in there under oath and start digging down and getting the timeline and getting people on the record about this. The only people that I see than can do this are members of Congress. The question is, do they have the will to do that?” Attkisson stated.

She goes on to make several other good points, including the fact that “the IRS is part of Healthcare.gov, if the IRS system can indeed be so vulnerable that some sort of crash can lose all kind of important data like this, what does t say about the federal system?”

Glenn Reynolds: “I think it’s fair at this point to assume that the “missing” emails are missing because someone in the White House was behind this.”

 

 

Claim: Humble Obama Doesn’t Give Himself Enough Credit For All His Foreign Policy Successes (Video)

In the old days, when the Regime tried to do a Jedi Mind trick like this on the American people – the media would let them.

This is not the Single Payer healthcare plan your looking for…

Obama would look straight into the camera, and repeat the lines at least 50,000 times,    “If you like your plan you can keep your plan…” or its variation – “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor…”

It took Politifact until the point Obama’s promise could be proven without a doubt to be a lie, (because millions of people were losing their health care plans) to rate it a “pants on fire” lie.

But the communication sages within the administration are always scheming to find new ways to fool the American people. And they really have their work cut out for them, lately, because on top of all the scandals currently swirling around him – Obama’s being hammered for being a weak and indecisive president who leads from behind. And Obama’s palace guard are finding it much more difficult to play along.

Poor Jen Psaki –  I truly feel sorry for her, here….

She picked the short straw on Thursday and had to face the room full of hard-boiled reporters with this howler.

JEN PSAKI: I would argue the president doesn’t give himself enough credit for what he’s done around the world. And that’s how the secretary feels too. We would not be engaged in comprehensive negotiations with Iran, which is where the program is stalled, and is rolling back, if it were not for the role of the United States, along with the P-5 +1 partners certainly. In Ukraine, we’ve been engaged more or as much as any other country in the world in supporting the elections process, supporting the government, and supporting efforts moving forward. Yes, there’s more work that needs to be done, the point is we need to continue to stay at it.

REPORTER: Is this a potential mission accomplished statement?

PSAKI: Absolutely not.

MATT LEE: You would argue the president doesn’t give himself enough credit, how much credit would you give him?

PSAKI: I would give him more than he has given himself. So would the secretary.

LEE: Like 200 percent credit? For what? Iran negotiations?

PSAKI: I mean…

REPORTER: What specifically are you saying he doesn’t get enough credit for?

PSAKI: For engagement in issues like Iran, what we’ve done on Ukraine. Efforts to dive in and engage in the world.

REPORTER: Russia has still annexed Crimea. Iran, there are ongoing negotiations, but is that the success here that your talking?

PSAKI: We’re talking about engagement in the world and taking on tough issues that present themselves, and the United States continues to play a prominent role doing that.

Now, whatever would possess a State Dept spox to say something so patently absurd? Obama doesn’t give himself credit? He only spiked the football for killing Osama bin Laden about 40,000 times. He doesn’t know how to give a speech without propping himself up as the only adult in the room with all the experts on his side, while denigrating anyone who disagrees with him. The obvious   narcissism of the guy has been duly noted by most of us on the right since early 2008.

Did those words just tumble thoughtlessly out of her mouth? Or did the White House’s crack communications team  come up with yet another awesome Jedi Mind Trick?

Because as  Twitchy notes, Lurch dropped the same talking point on Gwen Ifill , Thursday night on PBS  Newshour.

Via PJ Tatler: 

Coming off a week where President Obama laid out an Afghanistan withdrawal timetable and put forth his foreign policy vision, Secretary of State John Kerry declared Thursday that this administration is “more engaged” with the world “than at any time in American history.”

“I don’t think the president, frankly, takes enough credit for the successes that are on the table right now,” Kerry told PBS. “I mean, if you look at what has happened in Ukraine, the president led an effort to try to keep Europe unified with the United States, to put difficult sanctions on the table. Europe wasn’t thrilled with that. But they came along. That was leadership. And the president succeeded in having an impact ultimately, together with the Europeans, on the choices that face President Putin.”

I have my suspicions as to who is pushing this talking point. She is known to be a “court flatterer” and  “a peerless enabler of Barack Obama’s inflated opinion of himself”

“I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is. . . . He knows how perceptive he is. He knows what a good reader of people he is. And he knows that he has the ability — the extraordinary, uncanny ability — to take a thousand different perspectives, digest them and make sense out of them, and I think that he has never really been challenged intellectually. . . . So what I sensed in him was not just a restless spirit but somebody with such extraordinary talents that had to be really taxed in order for him to be happy. . . . He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do.”

Seriously. And he’s so extraordinarily modest –  he just doesn’t give himself enough credit for all the good he’s done around the world. By talking,  negotiating, and giving speeches he’s proved that he is a strong leader who is “engaged” and deserves a participation trophy.

Tommy Vietor on Benghazi: ‘Dude…That Was Two Years Ago’ (Video)

On FoxNews, Bret Baier interviewed Former NSC flack for Obama, Tommy Vietor who was involved in the editing of the talking points.

Baier asked Vietor about the edit that changed “attacks” to “demonstrations.”

Vietor shrugged it off, saying  he couldn’t remember, and then exclaimed impishly, Dude, this was like two years ago!”

Bret Baier shot back, “Dude, it’s what everyone’s talking about today.”

Unbelievable. This doofus used to work in the White House National Security Council. Think about that for one moment.

Obviously, we can’t take anything these twerps say on face value. That’s why I don’t think this is a big story. An O-bot said something, and what? We’re supposed to believe it?

Sharyl Attkisson wants to see the tick-tock of Obama’s whereabouts for that night, but the Regime isn’t supplying it.

Her theory is the White House had prepped for two different outcomes.

1. If somehow the Ambassador and crew had managed to survive the attack – there would be a picture of Obama and his team busy monitoring the situation in the Situation Room.

2. If things didn’t go well – well we already know  – blame it on a youtube video.

Attkisson has requested all of the photos taken at the WH, that day – but has been stonewalled on that.

MSNBC: “We Never Have a Conversation About Race” (Video)

According to one of the talking heads at MSNBC, we need to start talking more about race because even though we all think we should – doggone it! There just isn’t enough discussion about race in this country –  especially on PMSNBC – where you hear nary a word about it. And it’s such an important topic in 2014. Why aren’t we talking more about race, dammit? That’s what this country really needs.

 Digitas Daily created this video to demonstrate the short shrift this topic gets on MSNBC. And by “short shrift”, I mean  RACE-OBSESSED, RACE-BATING LIBS INJECTING RACE INTO EVERY SINGLE DAMN CONVERSATION.
