The Lies Unravel

headache_1

It’s all unraveling now, and not a moment too late. In the wake of the media-instigated win for Obama, all the pretty lies the Administration and the press used to cover his sorry ass are beginning to come out. Every day brings new stories that demonstrate the level of cover various organizations provided. Of interest today are two : a Libyan arms scandal and the unemployment situation.

The Libyan arms scandal:

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year, but American officials later grew alarmed as evidence grew that Qatar was turning some of the weapons over to Islamic militants, according to United States officials and foreign diplomats.

No evidence has emerged linking the weapons provided by the Qataris during the uprising against Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi to the attack that killed four Americans at the United States diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in September.

But in the months before, the Obama administration clearly was worried about the consequences of its hidden hand in helping arm Libyan militants, concerns that have not previously been reported. The weapons and money from Qatar strengthened militant groups in Libya, allowing them to become a destabilizing force since the fall of the Qaddafi government.

Had this been any Republican, this would have been news much earlier, and that news would have been met with calls for Congressional investigates. Because it is the Obama Administration, there’s additional coverage provided in the news itself, as demonstrated by the second paragraph above, and little will happen. IOKIYO. I remember when a similar scandal was huge news accompanied by an entire circus in the 1980s. And I bet that evidence is eventually reported that this is in fact tied to Benghazi.

Regarding unemployment, if you read between the lines, you can tell that Jack Welch was exactly right, despite all the backlash he faced from a hostile progressive media. Gallup’s headline is: U.S. Unadjusted Unemployment Shoots Back Up.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. unemployment, as measured by Gallup without seasonal adjustment, was 7.8% for the month of November, up significantly from 7.0% for October. Gallup’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate is 8.3%, nearly a one-point increase over October’s rate.

[...]

It is unclear what caused the increase in the unemployment rate in November, although some experts speculate that it was caused by jobs lost as a result of superstorm Sandy. It is also possible that lackluster holiday hiring is to blame.

Of course it’s unclear. Because it’s inconvenient to admit that Holder’s arm-twisting law suit and the California number-fudging were planned actions to help Obama win and they worked. The Sandy scenario is bullshit, because this kind of stuff creates jobs. And don’t believe the hype about uncharacteristically low holiday hiring either, since we’re already in the midst of the biggest holiday sales season ever.

There are more. Every day I watch as the truth of another election lie drops into the media cesspool. It’s always shrouded in protective language, too. It’s a nightmare keeping track. It’s going to be a long four more damn years.

    Great post.
    I find it hard to think about politics right now because everytime I do I turn into a seething mass of rage. So un-holidayish.

    • votermom says:

      Howard Dean on behalf of President Revenge and the Party of Everyone Must Pay for Re-Electing Me.

    • Mary says:

      There it is, folks. Howard Dean and the female brunette (Kristen, I think) admit they really want raising taxes for everybody, but are just starting with the “rich.”

      Like I said a few weeks ago……it’ll “trickle down” to the middle class….they’re just after the rich right now, but we’ll all be screwed down the road.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Of course it will trickle down to us, and lower. Do you think the wealthy stay wealthy being stupid ? ;)

        The corporations are already skirting around Obamacare requirements with surcharges and layoffs. Isn’t this fun ?

        • Mary says:

          Higher taxes, higher healthcare costs (including insurance), higher gas & food prices, higher deficits.

          All for the middle class , down the road.

          And traditional Democrats voted for this crap. (Shaking old grey head)

        • Then there are the poor slubs like me who can’t afford health insurance and will be penalized for it, thus putting health care that much further out of reach. The penalty we pay won’t even go toward providing us any health care at all. It’ll be used to pay for the health care of people who can’t or more likely won’t work. The cost will mean we likely won’t be able to pay out of pocket for our health care expenses either, as we have been doing. It’ll eat up any meager budget we might have used for that. It’s a fucking devil of a trap.

        • Mary says:

          I’m right there with ya, Lola—I’ll be paying the penalty cuz I can’t afford the health insurance I don’t have, and at age 60, it would cost too much.
          We’re screwed. Thank you, Obama. /s

        • catarina says:

          Who was it that said, “tax the STUPID people!”
          well, the stupid people have voted, and here it comes.

    • catarina says:

      Can someone please knock me out before I go on Facebook and bust an *I TOLD YOU FUCKING MORONS* tax rant to beat all tax rants?

      Re: the shock and awe to come-how do I not laugh maniacally in my clients’ faces when they start their hand wringing, bitching, moaning and whining?

      The middle class shakedown. This is is how it always goes.

    • angienc says:

      Paul Ryan looked right at the camera during the VP debate & said when they say we’re going to raise taxes on the *rich* “watch out middle class because the bill is coming straight to you.”
      Romney straight up told Obama “The rich are going to be find no matter which one of us wins. It’s the middle class I’m worried about.”
      The moron horde didn’t believe it in enough numbers to keep the race within the margin of fraud so Obama could pull out a win.

      {sigh} C’est la vie — see ya on the bread lines,, comrade.

  3. DeniseVB says:

    The media did nothing about Benghazi but throw more shiny objects at us in the last days of the election. Where’s the intellectual curiosity to dig up answers to our questions ? Why was Amb Stevens in such a dangerous place without protection ?

  4. Constance says:

    I’m here and reading but I am just sort of speechless and demoralized.

    • catarina says:

      Words fail. it’s all so surreal, isn’t it?
      When i see a car with an Obama ’12 sticker on it I don’t even get angry any more. There’s just not enough energy.

      • swanspirit says:

        I have to resist the urge to give them the finger .

        • catarina says:

          I want to smile sweetly and say, “you know Obama’s a sociopathic fraud, right? Oh, silly, did they tell you that you were one of the smart people?”

          Oh, and bah, humbug. Xmas spirit is just not happening.

        • swanspirit says:

          I am keeping my “season” separate from politics . For me it is like having a spiritual sanctuary or refuge ;away from the world . That is the only way I can do it . I think I have a bit of hermit in me , finding a cave , hide away from the world for half a decade , and wait out the misery sounds wonderful to me . i wish I could really do it .

  5. catarina says:

    Weapons in Benghazi you say?
    Stop being so mean to Susan Rice.
    Why do you hate black people?
    Sexist!

    • HELENK says:

      I read that story and i hope that every person who ignored the order winds up in jail for at least manslaughter, or 2nd degree murder

      • myiq2xu says:

        There will be a settlement paid to the family (using taxpayer dollars) and possibly a couple people will lose their jobs. But the system will remain unchanged.

        When I worked in juvenile court we called CPS the “baby snatchers.” It’s a job that attracts the worst know-it-all busybodies.

    I’ll tell you what — the last 4 years & 2 elections has given me a whole new appreciation for Samuel Beckett.
