The Necropolitan Sentinel: Doug Schoen on Lou Dobbs: Donilon Played a Key, Unexplained Role on Scandal-Plagued Admin’s Benghazi Debacle:
There’s a lot of interesting material here, but the most novel information is from Schoen, who asserts that National Security Advisor Tom Donilon has been leaking to the press in a quid pro quo to keep his own name out of the discussion. If that’s true, and Schoen seems positive that it is, calling him a “leaker par excellence,” the administration must be aware of it. So, when we compile a list of key people that the administration is evidently trying to protect from scruitiny, badly in some cases, we have to include Donilon with Hillary and with Sarah Hall Ingram, the last in the IRS scandal. Hillary, as we know, was never interviewed in the Mullen-Pickering report, and Issa has now subpoenaed both Mullen and Pickering to appear before his committee and explain the alleged deficiencies of their report. In his testimony before Issa’s committee, Mark Thompson stressed that it was very unusual from his perspective that the Foreign Emergency Support Team (FEST) should not have been activated under the circumstances (whether or not they could have reached Benghazi quickly enough to save anyone), and that in essence they were cut out of the decision-making loop. This week we have learned that their division, established under Bush the Younger, had been demoted de facto under the Obama administration. The Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG), was never convened on the evening of 9-11-12, although it is supposed to play a central coordinating role under exactly the circumstances presented by the Benghazi attacks. Whether the recalcitrance was the result of a general administration disdain for Bush-era policies or the usual half-assed hubris, or both, we don’t yet know.
The segment begins with an excellent discussion about the IRS hearing, yesterday. And towards the end Shoen made a very savvy point about how the Regime is handling all the scandals, calling it “the big lie technique.”
“There is not a direct nexus between what they’re saying, and what’s coming out, he said.” Exactly what I’ve been saying. And he ended on this note – “the Obama agenda effectively is dead.” Exactly what I said in the car coming back from BlogCon to Duane Lester and Thomas LaDuke. And they weren’t sure they agreed.
No, Obama and his grotesque Regime have finally gotten a comeuppance. Now that people have finally figured out how deceitful and corrupt they are, they will not be trusted on ANYTHING. They cannot, must not be allowed to continue to run roughshod over the Constitution.
Republicans in the House and Senate need to drop any and all bipartisan cooperation with the Regime’s agenda, immediately. (I’m looking at you Marco Rubio and John Boehner.) Holder’s on the way out. Obama is finished.
Making my point also are two gun control advocates who have changed their tune in the wake of these scandals: JOE SCARBOROUGH, PIERS MORGAN: OBAMA SCANDALS PROVE GUN ADVOCATES AREN’T CRAZY:
How big of a wake-up call are the Obama scandals, especially the ones surrounding the seizing of phone records from the Associated Press and the IRS’s targeting of conservatives? So big that two of the media’s most shameful and shameless gun control advocates — Joe Scarborough and Piers Morgan — have finally conceded that arguments made by pro-Second Amendment activists against the expanding of background checks might not be so ridiculous.
The jig is up – it’s time to start undoing the damage.

I was in the audience when Glenn interviewed two local tea party activists for his Dallas based show on Monday, and one of them told that story. I’ve been looking for the video on Youtube because their stories were so shocking.

The Conversation: IRS Asked Pro-Life Group To Include The Content Of Their Prayers?! (Video)
Life News reported yesterday that the IRS subjected one pro-life group to “repeated and lengthy unconstitutional requests for information about the viewpoint and content of its educational communications, volunteer prayer vigils, and other protected activities.”
One of the more shocking revelations to come out of today’s hearing came from Republican Rep. Aaron Schock, who asked Miller if the IRS had indeed asked a pro-life group to include the content of their prayers.
