Skip to comments.Sarah Palin is Right: Obama is Just Being Obama
Posted on 06/16/2014 4:35:45 AM PDT by Kaslin
Sarah Palin is right.
Obama losing Lois Lerners emails is worse than Nixon erasing 19 minutes of tape.
Two years of emails is much more significant than 19 minutes of conversation.
But then Obamas just being Obama.
If the IRS would only turn over the hard drive of Lois Lerner, I would happily be able to restore those lost two years of data.
Do you know how hard it is to permanently delete data off of a hard drive?
Very hard youd have to deliberately do it.
It would be kind of like spending $1 trillion on shovel ready jobs and creating no jobs.
It would be like giving unprecedented support to the solar industry and thereby killing the solar industry.
It will be like spending hundreds of billions on green jobs, an automotive bailout, and alternative energy, and end up with no jobs, no security and no energy to speak of.
It would be like passing banking reform to fix too big to fail, only to end up with bigger, more failure prone banks.
It would be like selling arms illegally to drug cartels south of the border and then covering up why you did it.
It would be like passing health care reform before you read what was in it.
It would be like promising that if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.
It would be like spending a half a billion dollars on the website that doesnt work.
It would be like losing Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia as allies, and driving them into the arms of radical Islam.
It would be like opposing the Iraq war but proposing to go to war in Syria.
It would be like saying that you ended the Iraq war while Islamic rebels drove into Baghdad.
It would be like outing the Pakistani national who helped us get bin Laden.
It would be like saying we cant drill our way out of our energy problem amidst the greatest energy boom in the last hundred years in the United States.
It would be like promising to soak the rich on taxes, while raising taxes on everyone.
It would be like promoting class warfare in a desperate plea to retain power while fueling one of the greatest market booms that the Wall Street and Washington power elite has ever seen.
It would be like asking Warren Buffett if everybody deserves the same opportunity that he had.
Or George Soros.
Or Bill Gates.
Or Barack Obama.
It would be like letting four Americans die in Benghazi, for God knows what reason, because you think: What difference does it make?
It would be like relinquishing our traditional role as guarantor of state sovereignty in EuropeEast or Westbecause Vlad the Impaler doesnt seem like such a bad guy anyway.
It would be like the president of United States admitting to White House staffers that he would rather be the president of China.
It would be like trading five of the top terrorists in the world and an unspecified amount of cash for a deserter from United States military.
It would be like trying to govern without a budget.
Or trying to rule without first governing something... anything.
It would be like taking selfies at a funeral. With a hot blonde.
Or getting a Nobel Peace Prize for nothing.
It would be like not releasing your birth certificate.
Or your college transcripts.
It would be like being the junior senator from Illinois and expecting to be the greatest president in the history of the world, because your skin color has given you both a sense of hatred and a sense of entitlement.
And knowing our junior president from Illinois as well as weve all gotten to know him these last seven years, I think we can safely say this about Mr. Obama: Sarah Palin was right all along.
It would be just like him.
Obama being Osama.
List of 0's many
All in his pursuit of a Marxist-Leninist nation.

When a hard drive is ‘erased’ they dol not removed the entire file, they only set a bit in the file that says it is an erased file. All the data is still there.
Reset that bit, and the file is back.
If your drive crashes, the magnetic bits of data can still be read using special machines. Data Recovery businesses make a living doing this.
In order to permanently erase something you have to PHYSICALLY FORCE the computer to write over those sectors - sometimes many times because old data may still be recovered if it is only written-over once.
Imagine writing on a pad of paper- if you tear off that top sheet, you may still see the impression on the next page, so the data might be recovered. It is similar to think of it like that.
TAKE POSSESSION OF THE COMPUTERS NOW - AND FIRE ANYONE WHO DID NOT FOLLOW RECORDS RETENTION AND DATA BACKUP LAWS
Try telling the IRS that you cannot do your taxes because your hard drive crashed and you have no backup...
Obama is a POS.
Warning strange Ubama Barbie Doll at thread!
So is Bag Dad a new type of EBT program?
I seem to remember someone saying "It's not the crime it's the coverup" and I think there's alot of that going on here.
That ain’t close to Barry’s physique. Where are the toothpick legs and arms, narrow shoulders, and sunken chest?
MRS. CLINTON, WHAT DID THE PRESIDENT KNOW? AND WHEN DID HE KNOW IT!?!?
She was right, opum hangs out with terrorists.
And our congress won’t do squat cause obammy is in a politically untouchable class.
He is a nrgro
James Manning says, If you [Whites] won’t call him Black, I won’t call him White.
EVERYTHING this poser does is a type of EBT program.
The silence of Bernstein and Woodward speaks volumes.
If we had term limits in this country politicians would not be concerned about harming their careers by making waves and filing articles of impeachment against this lawless guy. They would do the right thing; the thing that is better for the country.
I don't care who you are, that thar' is funny!
The D.C. in Washington D.C. stands for "Despotic Corruption".
We gave the government a gun to protect us and then the ability to extract as much of our money as they wished - where did crooks seek employment?
Lois Lerner’s hard drive, while recoverable (if it still exists), is not the issue. The branch & department mail servers are all backed up daily and stored (probably off-site).
Any reasonable sized company has protocols in place for secure backup & storage.
It would take a gargantuan, concerted effort to ensure that ALL copies of her emails have been located and destroyed. If that in fact is what has happened, then it is prima facie evidence of a criminal conspiracy.
Nixon’s tape was ONE copy covering 18+ minutes. The IRS deletions/destruction of evidence cover two years of originals (to/from multiple recipients) and who knows how many copies.
If Lerner is a hard core leftist who won’t turn states evidence, then charge & arrest ALL of the IT people ALL the way up the chain of command. Charge them with criminal conspiricy, destruction of evidence, etc, then let them plead to gross incompetence if they tell all.
All done with the help of the MSM.

Palin is correct for as far as she went.
Obama is just being Obama, and Boehner is just being Boehner.
As long as Boehner is Speaker of the House, Obama will continue to keep on being Obama, and Boehner will continue to keep on being Boehner.
When Boehner is forced to RESIGN, then, and ONLY then can Obama be forced to RESIGN.
Anyone who knows anything about his past cannot be the least bit surprised.
He was spoon-fed the same crapola we were all fed in school after the fall of Saigon that the Era of America was over and that we had to adjust to a world where we were not exceptional.
Except that he’s over 50 and still believes it.
"Romney and I loved the IRS material you sent on the Tea Party.
As before, we have your back, our beloved King."
PERFECT text and picture!
This is why when I have disposed of computers in the past I have opened them up and taken out the hard drive. I then drill a couple 3/8” holes through the hard drive and then smash it with a sledge hammer.
I then “recycle” the rest of the machine.
It’s going to take a long time for the US to recover from the damage 0 bummer has done to the union. I just hope we CAN recover. If Bush 43 had done the illegal actions done the past six years, the dims and the SRM would have been screaming for impeachment.
“If the IRS would only turn over the hard drive of Lois Lerner, I would happily be able to restore those lost two years of data. “
This is one of my pet peeves. Unless you specifically ‘save’ an email to your hard drive, NONE of your emails are ‘kept’ on it. Your emails are on large SERVERS.
An individual’s emails are stored on the servers of whatever EMAIL program you use.
An outfit like the IRS has it’s own EMAIL servers where the files are stored.
The “I lost my email because my hard drive failed” is a complete lie. A lie that is probably being kept alive by the ignorance of the media.
Not only that, someone just reminded me that the internet server that does their email has to store them according to some law in the patriot act
This is one of my pet peeves. Unless you specifically save an email to your hard drive, NONE of your emails are kept on it. Your emails are on large SERVERS.
That depends on how you have your e-mail client set up. For example, I use Thunderbird, and I have directed it to save all sent mail to a folder on my local system. My mail server (which is right behind me) is not configured to save mail on its hard drive, either incoming or outgoing. Period.
But then again, I don't run a business or have any other obligation to save e-mail -- if my hard disk crashes, the only person hurt is me.
Now, I have set up corporate-mail servers where the company is indeed obligated to save all mail, and I used a multi-level backup scheme similar to the one described elsewhere. The mail server stages the saved mail to a cache. On a regular schedule, the cache is written to tape and stored. The cache is sized, usually, to hold the worst-case load of mail for a week. (Including spam that gets through the filters.) Run time to save the mail? The time is measured in single-digit hours.
So, given a court order to search for mail over a two-year period, I would need to run roughly 90 tapes. At two hours per tape (there are a *lot* of mails on each tape), it would take 2000 hours, or roughly 300 days, to process two years of tape. It's just the sheer volume of mail involved that requires that kind of time. LOTS of CPU and I/O processing time. And remember, we are talking about civilian government computers. Unlike the Department of Defense, who stay close to the bleeding edge, I would suspect that all of us on FR each have more powerful computers on our desks than the IRS has in its electronic mail room.
Not to mention that there may be only one or two compatible tape drives in the facility, so the mythical man-month restriction comes into play here. Want to cut it down to three months? Run three shifts. And who pays for the extra manpower? Us, that's who. Oh, yes, buy more tape drives. More money we have to fork out. And what happens to those drives afterward? "Shelf rash." I don't know if the tape drives are available for rental, to throw more people/computers at the problem. Borrow from another agency? With "competitive" bidding? What are the chances that two agencies would buy the same drives? Or compatible drives? The IRS can't outsource the work, because the e-mails have taxpayer data one them. Oops.
Now, this is no excuse for months of delay in providing the e-mails, and I haven't touched on what happens when you extract the relatively small number of e-mails from the tapes. I'm only looking at the initial collection process. But the process is a bit more involved than people might realize.
So... if you had two years, could you do it ?
All we are talking about is doing a selective restore of one person’s emails.
Actually, it’s four email accounts, not one. And, yes, two years would be plenty of time. Myself, I’d hire a $10/hour clerk to operate the initial capture, rather than tie up a $60/year admin’s time.
“The silence of Bernstein and Woodward speaks volumes.”
Remember, according to the old media, a scandal is only a scandal when the Washington Post *says* it is a scandal.
Is a scandal still a scandal when the Washington Post remains in Omerta mode?
WaPo is Amazon these days.
Aren’t they a crony capitalist functionary of the regime?
How’s things going in Plant City?
There are programs that can restore date overwritten at least seven times.
Hot and thunder showers.
pretty much the same here in near Port St Lucie.
