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.
