Obama is going to use (the) James Rossen issue to try to draw all attention away from Benghazi & the IRS.

So, the Obama DOJ, in order to cover and justify their crimes, is now going to prosecute the journalists?

Fine...they are simply going to alienate the people who have been covering for Obama for so long and maybe now a few of them will actually be motivated to be real journalists instead of cheerleaders.

They have plenty of opportunities...a traget rich environment:

- Presidential order telling his Justice Department to not procesute or investigate Defense of Marriage Act violations.

- Department of Justice simply dropping the voter intimidation case against New Black Panther hoods who were filmed committing voter intimidation in 2008.

- Fast and Furious - Murdergate.

- The downing of the Navy SEAL helicopter in Afghanistan where 22 SEALs were killed on an out-of-date non SPECOPS hhelo that was sent into a known Taliban ambush without escort, and with every SEAL on a single helo.

- Gun running to Syrian Al Queda rebels.

- Benghazi consulate and safe house attack and murder of the US Ambassador, a State Department specialist and two Navy SEALs.

- The IRS intentional intimidation of conservative organizations.

- This issue of the Obama administration tapping journalists phone conversations without notification or a legal warrant.

etc., etc., etc.

There are three ways the federal government is funded:
1. Taxes
2. Federal Reserve
3. Financial Trade*

* This is an offshoot of private placement. The Fed’s have their own platforms and are using them to finance expenses beyond 1 and 2 above.

The takeaway here is that powers within the federal government do not need taxpayers nor do they need Congress performing actions such as raising the debt ceiling.

This is a pretty long, convoluted article, but it is, imo, a must read. The Ozero administration has literally criminalized the act of journalism. Reporters of all ideological stripes, from the NY Times to Fox News, are being indicted by Ozero’s DOJ and will be facing jail time.

This is a huge scandal that has the potential to align most of the entire media against the Ozero thugocracy.

Was Rosen indicted or not?

Obama could be indicted under the very same Espionage Act, so could Holder.

That's incorrect. No reporters have actually been indicted. Rosen is essentially an "unindicted co-conspirator" under the law.

Risen (not Rosen) was subpoenaed to testify in a whistleblower prosecution case. He is refusing at this point. If the Court orders him to testify, he says he will not. At that point, the Court can hold him in contempt and jail him.

It is now well known that the Obama justice department has prosecuted more government leakers under the 1917 Espionage Act than all prior administrations combined - in fact, double the number of all such prior prosecutions.

Of course. These investigations give the Obabma administration an excuse to behave like the Stasi.

Everyday it’s something. First it was the gal in Houston who was harrassed because of her Tea Party and True to Vote associations. Now this. I also see where the Fast and Furious Whistle blower was smeared.

I think this is the tip of the ice berg folks. It might explain why the MSM has not touched Obama because they’ve been afraid to do so.

I think the WORST is yet to come on this. We haven’t heard anything from Petreaus who may have the most to say here.

Our cultural traditions?? Ours?/

Here in Maryland its the Third world nations Balkins, designed that way (past decade or so, NYC went that way first) for Dems to gain and keep power.

Neighbors only talk to neighbors who are from their own country(usually in their own language), while their kids learn ‘civics’ Obama style from the public schools.

Most of them are two parent hetrosexual parents as in thie own countries, yet we got gay marriage re-affirmed at the polls last year.

You’re right Sarge.

Obama’s thugs will use this - give it to their boys at the New York Times. They’ll spin an ‘equivalency’. Look for ‘60 Minutes’ to explore the issue too - with lots of confidential information gleamed from classified sources? (that won’t be looked into by Holder)

Something has to feed the meme.

Have you seen this yet? Its wonderful:

The Battling Boys of Benghazi
(Author unknown)

We’re the Battling Boys of Benghazi,
no fame, no glory, no paparazzi,
Just a fiery death in a blazing hell,
defending the country we loved so well.

It wasn’t our job, but we answered the call,
fought to the consulate, and scaled the wall.
We pulled twenty countrymen from the jaws of fate,
led them to safety, and stood at the gate.

Just the two of us, and foes by the score,
but we stood fast, to bar the door,
Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,
so we fought and we fought, and we fought till we died.

We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,
but Barack Obama didn’t give a damn.
Just two dead SEAL’s, who carried the load,
no thanks to us — we were just “bumps in the road.”

The whole DOJ snooping story is an intentional leak designed to intimidate.

Likewise, a Republican fundraiser caller to Rush this morning said the IRS story was drying up funds. Rush saying the IRS story was deliberately leaked by Sarah Ingram (the former person in charge of approving tax-exempt organizations and the new IRS head of Obamacare) as a way to intimidate future donors because the donor then would likely face an audit.

Americans need to realize that the evil, spoiled, narcissistic and sociopathic liar in the White House is out to completely destroy America. And YES he absolutely would sponsor leaks on such a horrifically large scale as Wikileaks, using one of his low ranking gay friends to do it (Pvt. Manning).

Breaking - Report: DOJ Leaked Docs to Smear Fast & Furious Whistleblower, Says IG
breitbart.com/Big-Government ^ | 5-20-2013 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on Monday, May 20, 2013 10:18:23 AM by servo1969

The Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General published a new report Monday that confirms former U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke leaked a document intended to smear Operation Fast and Furious scandal whistleblower John Dodson.

The DOJ IG said it found “Burke’s conduct in disclosing the Dodson memorandum to be inappropriate for a Department employee and wholly unbefitting a U.S. Attorney.”

“We are referring to OPR our finding that Burke violated Department policy in disclosing the Dodson memorandum to a member of the media for a determination of whether Burke’s conduct violated the Rules of Professional Conduct for the state bars in which Burke is a member,” the IG wrote.

Burke resigned from his post as U.S. Attorney over the incident in August 2011, the first major Department of Justice official to leave his or her post in the Fast and Furious scandal. He said after the fact, in interviews with congressional investigators, that he now views leaking the document as a “mistake.”

In addition to Burke’s involvement in leaking the document, emails the IG uncovered show senior officials at the Department of Justice discussed smearing Dodson.

The Chi/mobsters in the WH got their con game down pat---these are practiced con artists---they oozed out of the much and mire of Chicago criminal politics and known every trick in the book.

Clearly, they surf the net to see what buzzwords conservatives are using to describe Ohaha---they then cunningly formulate their strategy based on our buzzwords.

Thus Rosen is tagged as treasonous for merely doing his job---while Ohaha sits untouched atop a pile of treasonus scandals.
