Drudge Ties IRS Scandal To Obamacare, Foreshadows ‘Brave New President’ After ‘American Holocaust’
Mediaite ^ | May 13, 2013 | Meenal Vamburkar

Posted on 05/14/2013 1:15:54 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Amid the controversy over Uncle Sam singling out politically conservative groups, Matt Drudge took to Twitter on Monday morning to offer his take. Linking the IRS scandal to President Obama‘s health care law, the Drudge Report creator foreshadowed civil war, an “American Holocaust,” and a “brave new president.”

Recently, Sarah Palin, too, drew a connection between health care and the IRS, noting that the “same corrupt” agency “will be in charge of enforcing Obamacare.” Drudge weighed in thusly — including some interesting hypotheticals:

To bad most don’t really care.

If a Republican had done this, again, he would be yanked from office. Of course a Republican wouldn’t be able to do it with the current staff of the IRS.

But Obama? Heck, he will be praised. Even if he orders us into the ovens.

Conservatives don’t know how to play the propaganda game.

I’ll go a step further: I think ultimately Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS, reporter spying is ALL tied together the way all of Nixon’s stuff was tied together to hie paranoia and CREEP. Keep pulling on the threads.

Look at the headlines on CNN, or on the news shows.

They will not attack their own president.

I'm seeing this comment a lot lately. The more important point to wrestle with, IMO, is the fact that once the fish begins to rot you have to toss the whole thing out and go get a new fish.

Or in this instance, as Thomas Jefferson so eloquently put it. "...provide new Guards for (our) future security."

With all these scandals it would seem that the Kenyan will need a distraction to unify the nation. This is done all the time in third world banana republics. An external affair like escalation of war in the Middle East is a possibility or a domestic event a la OK City. My guess for a domestic event would be targeting the IRS. That way, the POS could claim righteous indignation, and the IRS issue would dissolve into the background.

Most of what you say is true. but it’s not that the socialists are so good at propaganda but it’s that they completely control the news media. The news reporters are just democrats disguised as reporters.

The big news media especially the tv networks are the problem. These tv networks decide what people are thinking about and talking about. watch the news media drop this IRS scandal from the news soon.

The news media creates the false reality we live in.

I've been thinking the same thing.

Anyone who's worked in or even near the government knows its all about control... of everything, but of its own employees most of all. No government employee can do anything of significance without at least one or two higher levels of management knowing about it, sometimes more. The penalties are severe for doing so, and the penalties for making your chain of command look bad can be really nasty.

I think all this stuff is tied together in the West Wing, and if those ties become public at some point it will become a hurricane of scandal and perversity.

Anyone old enough to have lived through Watergate will remember the diagrams that Walter Cronkite and NBC Nightly News used to illustrate the interconnections between the different players, and how they all led to the Office of the President. Anyone who lived through those times will remember names like Donald Segretti, Alexander Butterfield, Maurice Stans, Gordon Strachan (pronounced "strong"), and many others. The MSM didn't say back then that "the whole thing is too complex for the average American to understand." Instead, the MSM lavished many broadcast minutes every evening to laying out the whole structure. They literally connected the dots, devoting seventy, eighty, ninety percent of their nightly bandwidth to explaining the scandal. Eventually the names of Haldeman, Erlichman, Mitchell, and Dean were tied in, and the game was over.

Obama has the IRS, DOD and DHS for his Gestapo. They have all named and targeted patriots and Christians as enemies of the new Socialist, global State.

I still think Benghazi is the big story and all these other things coming out have interesting timing. How do we know DOJ was tapping phones to investigate a “leak” about something in Yemen? Maybe it was to shut down Benghazi leakers....the DOJ is so corrupt that not one word from that dept is trusted by me.

0bambi lost Ron Fournier, a “journalist” of the strongest leftist stripe. That’s pretty big.

Ron will probably re-attach himself to 0bambi’s hind orifice shortly, but to have him at odds with The Won for even a moment is quite an event.

What I don’t get is why would the DOJ go after a news agency that possibly received the leak instead of going after the government employees who leaked the information to the news agency/agencies? Are they just trying to blame someone outside the gov’t?

Agreed. I'll build on it and suggest that the one that's going to be the big wake-up call for the media is the DOJ tapping the AP's phones. That's the first time Dear Leader has sh*t directly in the fawning press's soup, and they aren't going to like that dish at all.

As much as I like Drudge, he is wrong. Hackers will not know anything about Clinton, Hillary, Obama or Biden. Their information will be falsified, kept separately from everyone else or outright destroyed.

The only information actually available will be for George Bush, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh etc..

My guess is that the DOJ just figured they could cast a wicked big net and catch those govvies in it. And they probably figured the AP would just roll over and play dead because amongst a fawning press corpse, the AP is the lead Obama whore.

Agree with both. I also suspect it's the AP thing that's driving the media's retribution. But, if it is, it shows their heart is still not right. IF the media will pursue Benghazi with a vengeance, I don't care though.

Learned a little more today: the AP wiretaps involved “Al-Qaeda and Yemen”. So the question keeps coming up, “ Why didn’t the WH just ask AP for info?” What if the Yemen thing somehow was related to gun running in Libya and WH didn’t want to tip off AP . . . Just in case they might actually report???

“How do we know DOJ was tapping phones to investigate a “leak” about something in Yemen?”

of course we don’t, and this administration never lies. i think the DOJ needed to insert this caveat in order to protect themselves from one of the points in the articles of impeachment for Richard Nixon; whereby, using a gov’t agency to tap phones is exculpatory when it involves national security interests.

It’s obvious that Obama has a complete enemies list, as we can surmise from the IRS scandal.

American Christians will not be passive resistors, however. They will be the Church Militant.

When the IRS acts like thug enforcers in some third world hellhole and the President can’t keep his lies straight - people will notice - and care. We don’t have to ‘play a propaganda game’ - that’s the kind of sh*t Obama’s criminal thugs do. It’s NOT our way and never will be. We’ll hit the goons with the law - and we’ll win.

You bet American Christians will not be passive victims for the slaughter and we will become stronger and tighter with the Lord and one another if our government goes nuts.

They will be taking on American-Americans - the best of the best in spirit, character and war. They may like pretending America is dead and foreign - global - now, but they will find out America is far from foreign, weak and dead.

I do believe the Americans will make the jihadists look like babes if we declare war against a beastly, unconstitutional and evil government or they declare war upon us.

Sir, that is why we are losing.

Everything is a propaganda game. Obama came from Chicago, where the Law means something quite different than what most conservatives think it does. In Chicago, Law is a tool the ruling class uses to keep in power.

Do you think people care about this? Most don’t even know it exists. Of those that do, they feel that it must be ok to go after “haters”.

Conservatives have to play offense. We have to find ways to get the message out, and start running the narrative rather than getting run over by it.

Of course you're right about us needing to get our message out...you sensed discouragement... and objected. Right again. How we can get the MSM to understand that it's in their long term best interest to be fair is beyond me. Incentives the left have put down for them are strong... bonds hard to break. Especially when our primary tool is to shame them. Thanks for your comments redgolum.
