Beyond the Mainstream Media: Lynch Nomination: The White House Trickster Rides Again
One week after the midterm general election, President Obama still refuses to take any blame for the worst drubbing his party has suffered in 100 years. In fact, he's off and running, having since nominated Loretta Lynch to replace DOJ head Eric Holder. Today, he's on to net neutrality. Alsinsky's rules all the way - go so fast, their heads spin.
Obama must work fast in his goal to destroy our country. Time is short for him. He appears to be looking for a fight deliberately so he can again accuse Republicans of not working with him. Kind of like his government shutdown.
Completely ignoring the day he stared into John McCain's face in front of a table full of people, cameras rolling and saying, "elections have consequences," Obama said Lynch should be approved ASAP.
The meaning, of course, was to have the lame duck Congress approve her. Don't wait for the new Republican Senate. Apparently, election wins only have consequences when they work in his favor.
FACT: Holder assured us he'd stick around until a new AG was in place. There's no real hurry.
FACT: Lynch is a United States Attorney, one of 93 who come and go with minimal vetting and debate, often approved with a voice vote - as Lynch was both times under Clinton and Obama.
But this isn't just any old appointment, this is a cabinet position that deserves full vetting and full debate as Cruz, McConnell and others have pointed out. And the process should play out in the new Senate.
As the liberal press keeps repeating, Lynch has prosecuted both Democrats and Republicans (boy, what a qualifier!). I'm more concerned about a remark Lynch once made that voter ID laws were passed by racist southerners. Oops! Red flag. Lynch may be fine and, granted, Obama would be hard-pressed to find a worse, more racist DOJ than Eric Holder, but we need to know FIRST.
Meanwhile, I'm still reeling over MIT Professor Jon Gruber, the man considered the father of Obamacare, making the following remarks at the 24th annual Philadelphia Healthcare Economics Conference last year. Concerning getting Obamacare through - "the lack of transparency was a huge factor - and the stupidity of the American people or call it what you will," as well as making sure it wasn't called a tax, which would have killed it, and not letting the stupid Americans know the rich would pay for the poor.
Small wonder the Obama administration tried passing him off as an independent analyst rather than the paid White House contractor that he was, with, yes, your tax dollars - hundreds of thousands of them.
