MARCH 2010 : (NORTH KOREA SINKS A SOUTH KOREAN WARSHIP -- OBAMA ADMIN IN DENIAL MODE)
JUNE 2010 : (OBAMA ADMIN , NOT WANTING TO PUT NORTH KOREA ON THE TERRORISM BLACKLIST, CLAIMS THE NORTH KOREAN SINKING OF USALLY SOUTH KOREA'S WARSHIP WAS NOT AN ACT OF TERRORISM [OR FOR THAT MATTER AN ACT OF WAR]) WASHINGTON – The Obama administration is saying that the sinking of a South Korean warship blamed on North Korea was not terrorism, and not enough by itself to put the Pyongyang back on a U.S. terror blacklist. The State Department said Monday that the March sinking of the frigate Cheonan was a "provocative action" and a violation of the truce that ended the Korean war. But it added that the sinking by a reported North Korean torpedo strike was the act of one state's military against another.(Excerpt) Read more at news.yahoo.com ...------US: Sinking of SKorean warship not terrorism, AP on Yahoo ^ | 6/28/10 | Matthew Lee - ap Posted on 06/28/2010 11:12:23 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

WATERBOARD OBAMA!

It’s beginning to become very clear that thuggery and abuse of power may have tipped the balance in favor of Obama winning in 2012. Obama & his henchmen DEFRAUDED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

The Candy Crowley interruption of Romney with an incorrect “correction” of Romney’s statement on Benghazi no doubt helped cause Romney to lose hundreds of thousands of votes. But Romney’s Benghazi allegation about The Tyrant In Chief was correct!

The Administration (and then the media) deprived Americans of the truth.

Romney would seem to have a good legal case to make that Obama’s election SHOULD BE invalidated. He should sue the bastard and all of his cronies. Well, maybe he values his life...

But SOMEONE should sue to have proper election and with the information that we know now and were deprived of before via fraud.

I haven’t been able to keep up with all this, and i don’t want this to get lost in the shuffle so i’m posting it here.

On that “IRS Scandal Timeline Spreadsheet” thread from yesterday, it was mentioned that all the timelines have the first line redacted. Here’s the Washington Examiner article about it that Sir Napsalot linked:
http://washingtonexaminer.com/what-sparked-irs-abuses-treasury-report-redacts-first-item-in-all-timelines/article/2529736

If anything turns up here or elsewhere about an email that had a “2/25/2010” date on it, it may be significant. Apparently it’s when the IRS Tea Party persecutions began.

Could be. The problem was figuring out what kind of back channel would connect the White House to the IRS activities, since it’s not very likely that they went through Shulman, a Bush appointee. This explains how they could have done it.

http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/02/08/health.care/index.html

Washington (CNN) — President Obama’s bipartisan meeting on health care reform planned for February 25 [2010] will be broadcast live, a senior administration official said Monday.

Coverage details were not complete, but the official said the White House expected “the whole thing to be live.”


This was the “bipartisan health care meeting” where Paul Ryan and obama had their little discussion.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_V8l5HGNBB0

Refresh my memory: Didn’t Ryan challenge obama’s authority or something? Judging from obama’s proclivity for temper tantrums, i could see him firing off a retaliatory email to the IRS telling them to bring down the #&#$ Constitutional Teabaggers if he thought Ryan shamed him in public. lol!

Flashback: Paul Ryan vs. Barack Obama, February 2010

Rep. Paul Ryan schools President Obama on the president’s signature legislation, ObamaCare.

The White House is known to loathe Ryan because of his performance in that debate. The breezy president who handed the details of his own signature legislation to Nancy Pelosi got schooled by a young congressman who knew what was in the bill. It was an embarrassing moment for the thin-skinned president and he hasn’t forgotten it.

Paul Ryan is capable of destroying his opponents in a debate without ever coming across as unpleasant.

President Obama met with anti-Tea Party IRS union chief Colleen Kelly in the White House the day before the agency targeted Tea Party.

update :

The whole story about Kelly meeting with Obama in the White House is based on nothing more than the WH visitor logs. Those logs are available online. You can look at them yourself, and see that, in addition to Kelly, there are 116 other people who visited the OEOB on 3/31/10 for the "Workplace Flexibility Forum." You can see what time each person signed in (all ~1200). You can see what time each person signed out (all ~1700-1730). 8 posted on Monday, May 20, 2013 5:48:40 PM by Conscience of a Conservative

This piece is very good because it revisits what was happening in Feb 2010 and the author makes a point about how the media started portraying the Tea Party as a threat, among other things.

*****

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2013/05/remember-when-andrew-joseph-stack-flew-a-plane-into-a-texas-irs-building/275887/

Remember When Andrew Joseph Stack Flew a Plane Into a Texas IRS Building? That was February 18, 2010. A week later, the agency’s scrutiny of the Tea Party began. Here’s what happened leading up to the two events.

(snip)

On the theory that media reports might have been involved (since the agency says media reports led to the end of the special scrutiny of Tea Party and other conservative groups in February 2012), I went back and read through some of the national newspaper coverage on the Tea Party groups in mid-to-late February of 2010.

(snip)

There was a big David Barstow piece in the New York Times on Feb. 12, 2010, examining the political aspirations of Tea Party and other groups: “Tea Party Lights Fuse for Rebellion on Right.” Within the first five paragraphs, it mentions the Tea Party, the Sandpoint Tea Party Patriots, Friends for Liberty, Glenn Beck’s 9/12 Project, the John Birch Society, and Oath Keepers, described as “a new player in a resurgent militia movement.”

(snip)

What else happened in February 2010? The first National Tea Party Convention in Nashville, Tenn., featuring a major speech by Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice-presidential nominee.

(snip)

On February 23, 2010, Robert Wright, writing for the Times’ Opinionator blog, looked at “The First Tea Party Terrorist?” His column on the Andrew Joseph Stack incident is chilling in retrospect and in light of the IRS’s subsequent decision to begin sorting exemption applications for groups with “Tea Party, “Patriot” “9/12” and other conservative buzzwords in their names for referral to a specialist.

On February 18th, Stack had flown a small airplane into an IRS office in Austin, Texas, killing himself and IRS agent Vernon Hunter and injuring 13 on the ground. Stack left behind a six-page rant against the federal government and the IRS.

January 17, 2010 — Obama stumps for Martha Coakley in a tight Massachusetts Senate race against Scott Brown to replace Kennedy. Brown had pledged to vote against Democratic health care efforts.

January 19, 2010 — Brown wins the special election, jeopardizing the health care legislation.

February 25, 2010 — Obama holds a televised heath care summit with leaders from both parties to explain the health care bill.

Snippets...

Health care summit set for Thursday
Washington Examiner (DC) - February 24, 2010

Obama has summoned both Democrats and Republicans to a White House summitat Blair House, to be cast live on C-SPAN and perhaps cable Thursday, Feb. 25, 2010,gambling that he can save his embattled health care overhaul by the power of persuasion.

Outside, busloads of “ tea party ” activists will demonstrate against the majority plan.

“I realize anything I post about this is probably irrelevant...”

Beg to differ :-). I appreciate your posts. Data-points in the BHO adm are rarely irrelevant.

Three things come to mind that I have gleaned from the research I have conducted over the years on Obama & his adm.

1) They always aim to kill more than one bird with one stone-—multiple motives.

2) When they have to throw a “family member” under the bus, he/she is always positioned/promoted to do as much/more damaged-—i.e., never really thrown under the bus (if loyal), just rehabilitated and repositioned.

2) A timeline to the Obama Adm is like water on a witch.

Damning.

Any GOP politician or pundit who doesn’t use this information can be considered just as much one of the enemy as the main group of conspirators.

Scorched earth, rear guard action, or the GOP is dead as a national party within two or three election cycles.
