It’s official. Anthony Weiner the putz is running for Mayor of New York City. He released a campaign ad actually complaining about ‘red tape’ hurting the people of New York City. That’s more than ironic since the Weiner voted for all those regulations and red tape during his corrupt years in Congress. New York City’s current Mayor is Michael Nanny Bloomberg. I don’t think little putz Weiner could be much worse. Of course, in L.A., we got to choose between Wendy Greuel and Eric Garcetti for Mayor, so maybe I shouldn’t talk.

So not only did the DOJ seize James Rosen (and five Fox News reporters records) but they seized the phone record of James Rosen’s parents too! Bret Baier reported on Special Report that latest chapter in the Obama regime’s attack on James Rosen, his parents and Fox News. Twitchy reports:
|Obama-Holder DOJ seized James Rosen parents phone records|
The net cast by the Department of Justice into the media pool just keeps getting bigger. The original story of Associated Press phone records being seized alone was enough to qualify as the Obama administration’s third big scandal of the moment, right up there with Benghazi and the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups. Then we learned that the Justice Department had looked into not only the work calls of Fox News’ James Rosen, but his personal cell phone, his movements and his Google emails as well. And now, reports say that the DOJ looked into his parents’ phone records too.
Bret Baier just reported that the freakin’ DOJ seized the phone records of James Rosen’s PARENTS!

Remember David Sirota? This is the left wing idiot at Salon that wrote an article titled ‘Let’s hope Boston Marathon bomber is a white American.’ Of course the Boston Bombers turned out to be Muslims on a Jihad and Sirota was really bummed over that. Now, that idiot David Sirota is blaming all the death and destruction in OKC tornadoes on the sequester. I guess David Sirota forgot that the sequester was Obama’s idea and request in the 2011 budget deal. If you needed any more proof that liberalism is a mental disorder, just look at the reaction of leftists yesterday after the tornado struck and David Sirota’s disgusting article today.
OK City tornado is a reminder that Congress is endangering the country by defunding the National Weather Service: salon.com/2013/05/21/how…

Ronald Machen was nominated by Obama and confirmed in 2010 to be United States Attorney for the District of Columbia. Last year Ronald Machen was selected by Eric Holder to ‘prosecute’ security leaks that many believed were coming directly from the Obama White House to make him look good. Over the weekend it was revealed that the DOJ seized James Rosen’s phone records. Then it was revealed yesterday that Holder’s DOJ also seized the phone records of reporter William La Jeunesse & producer Mike Levine. Now, according to Breitbart, Ronald Machen has seized up to five Fox News reporters phone records.
So now that former IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman has admitted that he knew ‘tea party’ was on the Obama/IRS enemies list, does that mean it’s time to send him to jail for lying under oath to Congress?
Former #IRS Commish Shulman: ” I knew there was a list. I knew the word Tea Party was on the list. I don’t know…I don’t know…”

Even with Shulman admitting he knew there was a list and that tea party was on the list, he still had the audacity to claim he was ‘unaware.’
Sharyl Attkisson is a rarity. She’s a CBS journalist who’s tried to get answers on Benghazi. Rumors started that the eggheads at CBS were so frustrated by Attkisson’s reporting on Benghazi, that they were getting ready to dump her because of it. Now we learn someone (or some agency) has been snooping around Sharyl Attkisson’s computer.
Sharyl Attkisson, the Emmy-award winning CBS News investigative reporter, says that her personal and work computers have been compromised and are under investigation.
“I can confirm that an intrusion of my computers has been under some investigation on my end for some months but I’m not prepared to make an allegation against a specific entity today as I’ve been patient and methodical about this matter,” Attkisson told POLITICO on Tuesday. “I need to check with my attorney and CBS to get their recommendations on info we make public.”
In an earlier interview with WPHT Philadelphia, Attkisson said that though she did not know the full details of the intrustion, “there could be some relationship between these things and what’s happened to James [Rosen],” the Fox News reporter who became the subject of a Justice Dept. investigation after reporting on CIA intelligence about North Korea in 2009.
It’s hard enough being a conservative in college today. Between the Marxist professors indoctrination and the limiting of conservative free speech being conservative in college is rough these days. Apparently, if you were a conservative college intern it was even worse. Obama’s IRS demanded information about conservative groups’ college-aged interns.
When the AP spying scandal broke, I was surprised it didn’t include Fox News. After last night’s revelation that Obama and Eric Holder’s Department of Justice spied on James Rosen of Fox News, I wasn’t surprised. Today, when news came out that Obama and Holder’s DOJ also spied on other Fox News reporters and producers like William La Jeunesse and producer Mike Levine I just kind of chuckled. I laughed because gasbag Bill O’Reilly dismissed the AP spying scandal as nothing. Now that the spying has been revealed to include Fox News, I’m betting Bill O’Reilly will be all over this ‘looking out for the people.’ Now, Drudge Report editor & Washington Times columnist Joseph Curl has dropped another bombshell. Curl says that a CIA source says the Fox News scandal is the “4th Shoe” to drop. This means you will have Benghazi, IRS, AP and now Fox News Scandals engulfing the Obama regime. Curl says that the Fox News case goes much deeper than has been reported so far. The Obama White House is sitting on “something” that has top aides terrified.

Nothing would surprise me anymore. I’m just surprised it’s taken this long to come out. Rosen was spied on back in 2009. I can’t wait to see what else drops. I wonder if this will get into Bret Baier, Sean Hannity and Megyn Kelly.
IRS union chief Colleen Kelley met with Obama day before Tea Party targeting began
Is Colleen Kelley meeting with Obama one day before the IRS started targeting conservative and tea party groups the so called ‘smoking gun?’ According to American Spectator the president of the anti-Tea Party National Treasury Employees Union, Colleen Kelley, visited the White House at 12:30pm and directly with Obama. The day after Obama met with Colleen Kelley, she suggested the need for a sensitive case report on the Tea Party cases.

Now-chief counsel of the IRS, William Wilkins helped Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s church get out of an IRS probe in 2008. William Wilkins was working as a private attorney at the time. I’m sure this yet another amazing coincidence, isn’t it Hussein?
When last week when the IRS scandal broke, Obama claimed he just heard about it on the news? Most people with a brain knew that was pure BS. So Jay Carney was in damage control mode again over the IRS, and changing the timeline of when the Obama regime knew about the probe. Jay Carney is now saying that Obama’s White House counsel was told about the IRS probe back on April 24th.

Obama’s own Chief of Staff Denis McDonough was also alerted on April 24th.
. @presssec: WH Counsel learned about the IG IRS report on April 24. She told the Chief of Staff. But no one intervened.

So are you going to tell me that with these two knowing about the probe, Obama didn’t? I call bullshit.
Michael Clemente is the executive Vice President of News for Fox News. Clemente issued a statement after it was learned that Obama/Eric Holder’s DOJ not only spied on James Rosen, but also William La Jeunesse & producer Mike Levine. Michael Clemente statement (via MediaBistro) is below:
We are outraged to learn today that James Rosen was named a criminal co-conspirator for simply doing his job as a reporter. In fact, it is downright chilling. We will unequivocally defend his right to operate as a member of what up until now has always been a free press.”
Perfectly said Mr. Clemente.
Fox News reporter William La Jeunesse & producer Mike Levine join James Rosen as being spied on by the Obama/Eric Holder ‘Department of Justice.’ The new word that seems to be the favorite to describe the spying is ‘chilling.’ I don’t find it chilling. I find it downright corrupt, criminal and borderline treasonous. William La Jeunesse and Mike Levine were spied on over Fast and Furious.
Don’t expect the rest of the media to be outraged over this like they were over the AP spying.
James Rosen is the chief Washington correspondent for Fox News. Turns out he was spied on just like AP reporters. But this was back in 2009 when Obama and Eric Holder’s Justice Department began investigating leaks of classified information on North Korea. I’d be surprised if James Rosen and other Fox News reporters weren’t spied on more frequently, and more recently like the AP reporters. The DOJ also spied on Stephen Jin-Woo Kim who was a government adviser.
Nice. So the Justice Department was spying on Fox News Channel’s James Rosen. pfol.us/14HbBFj

“Search warrants like these have a severe chilling effect on the free flow of important information to the public,” said First Amendment lawyer Charles Tobin, who has represented the Associated Press, but not in the current case. “That’s a very dangerous road to go down.”
