It Must Be Bob Woodward’s Fault

I have just finished reading, “Journalist Bob Woodward Clashes With White House Over Sequester Report” by Devin Dwyer, and find it both disturbing and expected.  It must be Bob Woodward’s fault because Obama & his administration never are at fault.

One portion of the article that caught my attention was:

White House officials have downplayed Woodward’s account, saying that no threats were intended and that the original impetus for the email to Woodward was to apologize for an earlier heated phone conversation. And while the administration does not directly dispute Woodward’s reporting, officials believe he is focusing on a moot point.

“What does that matter now? Not much,” senior Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer told reporters Sunday of the debate over who concocted the sequester.

“What does that matter now?”  Didn’t Hillary Clinton say, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” when asked about the people being lied to about Benghazi?  When caught, “ask what it matters”and try to make the questioner look to be making something out of nothing, seems to be part of the game plan.

WoodwardWhat matters is that the sequester was Obama’s baby, but when it didn’t go as planned, the campaign was to blame the Republicans.  It was, after all, their fault for not allowing Obama to have his way, was it not?

People have a right to the truth — not the events rewritten and presented as what it is not — truth and honesty.

Here’s a beauty of a comment:

Former Obama campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith also opined: “Woodward deserves a lot of credit for taking a macro story about DC dysfunction, competing econ theories & making it all about him,” she said.

Do these people go to school to earn degrees in demand for absolute submission, shifting blame, disrespect and insults?

Bob Woodward isn’t a nobody blogger.  He is a highly respected investigative journalist.  A journalist that apparently didn’t go along with the propaganda.  And when he didn’t go along with the made-up version of the sequester talking points, the Obama team apparently thought threats and bullying were in order?  Adding to the pot of seemingly inappropriate behavior –when caught — the White House & campaign team starts throwing out insults and trying to make it look like Bob Woodward got it all wrong or is trying to make it about himself?  What a sham and a shame.

The bullying and dishonesty coming from the White House is apparent and needs to be stopped.  Perhaps the inexcusable treatment of a respected journalist like Bob Woodward will open eyes and set the journalists on fire.  Perhaps the Woodward incident will be the beginning of the end for the once eager propaganda machine we have been witnessing the past few years.  Yes, perhaps the journalists will now get back to journalism and the search for “actual” truth and the integrity some media personnel lost along the way.

The chatter is Bob Woodward’s fault.  He stood up and presented the facts… the truth.  How many others will follow his example?  How many others will have his courage?  Time will tell.


Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Residents dig out ambulance stuck in snow, save man’s life


Carrie’s Take Comment: Once upon a time, somewhere in the past, neighbors helping neighbors was actually the norm. May we now be at the turning point and heading back towards the “good ole days” of compassion and looking out for each other.

The above story is heart-warming and gives true hope! Neighbors weren’t asked — they simply did! May they forever be blessed!

Time for Truth & Facts: ABC Allegedly Edits Michelle Obama

true falseInteresting news is that Michelle Obama’s comments were allegedly edited by ABC.

According to Charlie Spiering, Commentary Staff Writer for The Washington Examiner :

In an interview with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts aired this morning, First Lady Michelle Obama recalled the tragic death of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton who was shot and killed in Chicago after performing during the President’s Inauguration celebration in Washington D.C.

“She was caught in the line of fire because some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need,” the First Lady explained. “I just don’t want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. I want them to know that we put them first.”

Chicago police reported, however, that Pendleton was shot by a man who “opened fire with a handgun before fleeing in a waiting car” according to the Associated Press.

Once again, misinformation is given about the type of gun and who was responsible.  It apparently wasn’t an automatic weapon and it wasn’t a kid.  It was a hand gun and it was a man according to the reports Spiering was relying upon.  So, what part of the truth is so difficult to comprehend and take into consideration?  Or, is it that the Obamas and other gun control supporters are merely taking advantage of the crisis at hand and doing a little altering here and there to fit their preferred argument for more restrictions?

The politicians, their wives, the activists and lobbyists should all be held accountable for the misinformation they are trying to spread to gain support for what they personally want, rather than what is necessarily for the good of the people.

It’s time that the “misinformation” be addressed, rather than merely ignoring or editing out inconvenient statements as first done by NBC & now ABC.  It’s time truth and facts get air-time and Running Man like behavior stay in the movies where it belongs.  This is, after all, “real life”, not some action movie meant to entertain for a couple of hours.  On the other hand, the Running Man plot sure seems eerily familiar.

Obama: Another Dr. Phil Fad?

Oprah Winfrey, a few years back, catapulted Dr. Phil into a massive fad that no one could seemingly escape.  His pictures… his books… his everything was everywhere.  It appeared there was no escaping this alleged expert on everything from relationships to diets to how to overwhelm the store aisles with his likeness.  Oh, the world was indeed in love with Dr. Phil and his advice became what some hung onto as though it was God’s own gospel with, “Dr. Phil said …“  Yes, “Dr. Phil said…” was almost as everywhere as his face and his books and his everything.

Obama Nose UpThen Oprah gave us Barack Obama as her golden one for president.  Suddenly his pictures…. his books… his everything was and is everywhere.   He’s supposedly an expert on so many things, but most wouldn’t know about that it would seem.  He has sealed his records, so we only know about what he wants us to know and little more if anything at all.  We’re just supposed to take his word, and his handlers’ words, that all is as presented or alluded to by any and all of them.

It’s amazing how fads can be carefully crafted and presented to be what will make them sell, rather than entirely what they are.  Just how much is truly known about these fads Oprah gave us?   Anything, or is it kind of like assuming Robin was Dr. Phil’s first wife, though she really wasn’t?  Likewise how much about Obama is really not as assumed either?   One can only wonder.

Maybe when the sparkle wears off, we’ll actually see the core, rather than the illusion that was carefully crafted and sold to the eager public hungry for whatever seemed to be lacking in their lives at that particular time.  Or, maybe the public will just move on to their new hero of the day and leave the guru and the so-called messiah to fade into the distant past where people are no longer fascinated and wonder why they ever were.


God Will Remember the Touch Denied

You deny my touch, though it be one of love, and oh so familiar and comforting to he — the man I truly love.  The man who truly loves me, too.  The man who married me and chose to spend the rest of his life with me — not you or those you put in charge of his now lonely and desperate existence that never needed to be.

Does your cruelty to he and to me feed some hungry darkness within your heart and soul?  Does it give you utter pleasure to deny such a small gesture of love and comfort to he and to me – we whom you have such devastating and merciless power over this day and days that have been?  Oh does the thrill carry you into ecstasy of sinful delight?

I can only wonder at the pleasure our misery has brought to your day.  A misery you will be given credit for throughout eternity.  Your moments are yours to behold this day and all days to come.

God, the ultimate judge of all things, will remember those loving touches denied for no other reason than could be denied!

Yes, God will remember and there will be no delight left to behold!
