Judge Jeanine Smacks Down Jay Carney, “Has This Guy Ever NOT Told A Lie At A Press Conference?”

In Judge Jeanine Pirro’s Opening Statement, Saturday night, she called out Democrats who are refusing to participate in the Benghazi investigation committee, headed up by Trey Gowdy. “They have to be afraid of something,” she said. “They have something to hide.”

Making the point, that if the investigation were nothing but a crass political stunt, like Democrats say, wouldn’t that benefit Democrats? Pirro asked.

Pirro than ran through a list of unanswered questions the commission will be likely be seeking answers to – not the least of which is –  why did everyone lie?

Referring to Jay Carney, Pirro scoffed, “has this guy ever NOT told a lie at a press conference? I mean this guy should be indicted just for showing up because everyone knows that his intent is to lie.”

So true. I’m sick of seeing his smug, lying face. I don’t know how the press corps – even the ones who willingly help him disseminate the lies – don’t get sick to their stomach listening to his BS day after day.

Pirro had on Chris Farrell from Judicial Watch to talk about the work they’ve been doing to break through the Regimes protective firewall.

Farrell said that they’ve got “four lawsuits in federal court, right now.”

He added that they’ve also “filed dozens of FOIA requests at the various agencies – State, DoD, Justice and others.”

“There’s more to come,” he promised.

Pirro asked about the emails that are being withheld by the State Dept concerning a Fox News report on Benghazi.

“Clearly you guys set off alarm bells in the White House.” Farrell answered. “They were in panic mode, trying to shape a response – come up with some bullet points to knock down your reporting.”

“They will only abide with transparency when it’s compelled by law”, Farrell said.

Pirro had on Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey to talk about the make-up of the Select Committee.

She asked what would happen if the Dems decide to boycott.

“That’s a big so-what,” Mukasey answered. “Remember the Soviets walked out of the Security Counsel and a lot of good work got done in their absence. That’s the analogy I would draw.”

Charles Krauthammer also said he hopes Dems wILL boycott Benghazi investigation so America can avoid ‘softballs’ and ‘speeches.’

But I said it first: “I kinda like the idea of no Democrats being around to gum up the proceedings with partisan obfuscations myself.” May 5th.

Make our day, cry babies – have your little temper tantrum. Boycott the panel, whine and grouse on the sidelines while the grown-ups do the work.

It will be 41.6% better without them.

Saturday Movie Matinee: Media Malpractice on Benghazi

Video: Trey Gowdy Rips MSM For Media Malpractice On Benghazi:

A video I posted last November is making the rounds. A lot of people missed it at the time because ObamaCrash was sucking the Oxygen out of all the other news stories – including Benghazi. But the post has continued to get traffic as more and more people watch the righteously indignant Gowdy shame the media for being AWOL on a major scandal.

The October 30 press conference took place after Senator Lindsey Graham threatened to hold up all future Senate confirmations unless the Regime was more forthcoming with the information Republicans were seeking.

Keep that in mind every time you hear a Democrat media strategist drone on about all of the hearings and all of the questions that have been answered.The Republicans had been stonewalled since day one, while the media looked the other way. Gowdy asked reporters if they could answer a series of pertinent questions about the attack – knowing, of course –  that the answer would be no.

He concluded by saying, “I am not surprised that POTUS called this a phony scandal. I’m not surprised that Sec. Clinton asked ‘what difference does it make?’ And I’m not even surprised that Jay Carney said it happened a long time ago. I’m just surprised that people bought it.”

The acting deputy U.S. attorney general in charge of overseeing ‘public integrity’ prosecutions testified Friday that he doesn’t know who’s in charge of the criminal investigation of Lois Lerner, the former IRS official at the center of the tea-party targeting scandal.

David O’Neil, whose job atop the DOJ’s criminal division puts him in charge of public corruption prosecutions, told Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan that he also doesn’t know how many prosecutors are assigned to the case, or how many attorneys from his division are working on it.

Asked to identify the lead agent in the Lerner investigation, O’Neil would only answer, ‘I’m sure that we can provide that information to you.’

PJTV – Ill-Humored? Obama’s Mean-Spirited Humor Fails to Inspire:

President Obama delivered a speech at the White House Correspondents’ dinner. Rather than engage in self-deprecating humor like other presidents, Obama lashed out at his enemies, subjecting them to ridicule. Is this just a new trend in comedy, or was Obama deflecting attention from his crumbling agenda and troubled presidency? Find out on part one of this three part Trifecta examining President Obama’s sense of humor.

Trifecta continues its examination of President Obama’s sense of humor. In part two, Trifecta looks at Obama’s inability to laugh at himself, and his tendency to use humor to belittle others.

PJTV – Time to Go:

Whatever happened to a loyal opposition? Boehner and McConnell just seem to be loyal, without the fervency and drive to oppose Obama’s recklessness. Bill Whittle is tired of seeing our country’s oldest tenets left hanging from a thread with no major leadership there to save them. It’s time for a new group of young leaders to takeover.

Video: Smoking Gun Email Shows VA Employees in WY Falsified Records

A damning new email obtained by Fox News reveals that an official at a Wyoming VA instructed his workers to cook the books to make it look like patients were being seen within the agency’s required 14-day window.

Via Fox News

Fox News has learned that the VA was informed of dubious scheduling practices at the Cheyenne VA Medical Center and at a community-based outpatient clinic in Fort Collins, Colorado, which is part of the Wyoming center, through an internal investigation in December 2013. The problems at and the investigation into the Fort Collins clinic were reported earlier this week.

***

The June email signed by an employee named David Newman, a Telehealth coordinator at the Cheyenne center, describes to the workers methods they can use to manipulate records in the patient appointment system to comply with a VA policy that requires patients be seen within 14 days of their desired date of appointment.

“Yes, it is gaming the system a bit,” the email reads. “But you have to know the rules of the game you are playing, and when we exceed the 14-day measure, the front office gets very upset.”

Shinseki said in a statement that after he learned of the email on Friday, he ordered the employee who wrote it placed on administrative leave. He said he also ordered the VA’s independent inspector general to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter.

“VA takes any allegations about patient care or employee misconduct very seriously.  If true, the behavior outlined in the email is unacceptable,” Shinseki said.

In the age of Obama, even blatantly obvious malfeasance requires an “investigation” before a wrong-doer can be fired. Which is why none are ever fired – because the Obama Regime’s  investigations always end up being a whitewash where no one is found to be at fault.

This latest bombshell email was discussed on Fox News, Saturday morning.
