Or perhaps, since their source is a lawyer-with-a-website, the two newspapers decided discretion was the better part of journalistic valor here. Amend that: the MSM hides behind the curve, hoping that none of the particularly egregious stories they already cover over like a cat in a litter box will ever see air and light.
These guys regularly kill more lively stories than your neighborhood abortionist ever dreamed of snuffing. And when those stories finally begin to walk and talk anyway, these same swell fellows pretend they don’t exist — just phantoms created by the meanies on the Right. That’s their meme and they’re sticking to it. Doing otherwise would require looking for work.
Thus we come to a Truth doctor, one who has no qualms about bringing these reports to life:
Among many other things the MSM doesn’t touch, Debbie Schlussel has been reporting on the waaay strange and quite bent appointments emanating from the Obama administration since at least 2010 — her information probably goes back further, but that’s as good a place as any to begin before moving on to her current series of stories on our Department of Homeland Security. Her work will not make you feel more secure.
I learned two new things on that post. The first is the word “tranny” for transgendered persons. Ms. Schlussel is not sparing in her details of their surgery. Thus, the second thing I learned was that in order for Mitch to become a more credible “Amanda” he had to have his forehead ground down and his Adam’s apple removed. Shudder. No wonder Islam thinks we can be rolled without a problem. I don’t know the critical point for a culture which promotes such decisions as a good, but sometimes it seems our little barrel is tumbling way too fast toward the Falls.
The Big Story
But those stories are merely firecrackers compared to the latest, the big artillery of her latest revelation.
Schlussel ‘s accounts detailing the hostile atmosphere toward men at the Department of Homeland Security are startling. Apparently, since Janet Napolitano became head honcho at DHS, an anti- testosterone poison gas has been oozing from under her office door.
[Question: where does our President dig up these people? This administration must have by now far exceeded the numbers of incompetents hired by any president since Grant’s time in office.]
I’d love to know how Ms. Schlussel got a hold of this lawsuit, but her sources don’t matter. What is important is her willingness to investigate and report. And I love her headlines, just like real newspapers used to do it. Makes me nostalgic:
EXCLUSIVE: Top NY Homeland Security Cop Sues Napolitano; Alleges Obama DHS Officials’ Anti-Straight Discrimination, Demands for Oral Sex — “J-No Appointed Lesbian Girlfriend, ICE Chief of Staff Harassed Male Agents”
And then, when the New York papers finally picked it up, she headlined:
NY Daily News, NY Post Credit Schlussel for Breaking Napolitano Lawsuit Story
There, she notes their lack of integrity:
But only the New York Daily News’ reporters did the ethical thing and made sure I got credit within the article in the print edition. I called and e-mailed the New York Post reporter, Bruce Golding, and his editor to complain, and in response, they belatedly gave me credit within the online article at 10:47 a.m., after the article had been published online for over 10 hours and the print edition cuts me entirely out of my story. They’ve promised to “make it up to me,” but I’m not holding my breath (since I don’t know how you can possibly make up to someone breaking their big scoop and cutting them out of it, now that the cat is out of the bag and already old news, by their doing).[see the links in the above at her post]
In one of her posts — I’ve now lost my bearings amid all this information she has gathered — Ms. Schlussel explains what the career guys think:
Agents suspect this pan-gay discrimination is why Beth Gibson, a lawyer with no law enforcement experience, is Obama’s Assistant Deputy Director of ICE and was recently granted Senior Executive Status (SES), which means she will make well over $200,000 a year plus benefits. Gibson is the woman who killed ICE’s successful worksite enforcement and fugitive operations that used to make illegal aliens fearful of getting caught (now they laugh). Gibson lobbied ICE Director John Morton and Jim Dinkins, the Director of Investigations to give her girlfriend an ICE Special Agent position for which she is not qualified. The girlfriend, agents say, could not pass the Special Agent Exam (which is a pretty easy test . . .Political cronyism squared and queered while the rest of us are screwed.
The stone wall of silence erected by the MSM to keep out any bad news for Barry isn’t a surprise. But the fact that this reticence continued even after this lawsuit was filed on May 21st.?? Color me Baffled. They can’t touch it till some website does, and even then it’s with reluctance and disdain. This is just one more sadly predictable example of the sleazy practices used by the MSM with their ongoing “investigations-for-thee-but-not-for-me” attacks on conservatives.
Were they not so dim, they surely would have figured out this was going to break eventually. Maybe they thought it could be safely buried in the District Court Clerk’s office till after the election? Lame, I know, but at this point one is left rummaging for reasons.
By now we know all too well that the contents of such a filing would have made The New York Times front page were it to occur in a Republican administration. You’d have to go back to the paranoid days of Nixon to find the like on the right; he was an exception and his flimsy little “Enemies List” is small potatoes compared to the huge cross-referenced data base kept by the current gatekeepers, all in thrall to the rigors of the up-the-ante Chicago Smear Machine. And it turns out Nixon's paranoia, if not his actions, was spot-on.
Well, the dike is starting to leak now; can’t but so many jornolists put their fingers in all the holes. Thus, TWO New York papers are telling the story Debbie Schlussel broke ALL BY HERSELF. I don’t doubt more than a few jornolists and jornolistas were sitting on this one. Their reasons? Either too lazy to look or too afraid of their peers if they go public. Can you think of another reason a well-substantiated story remained behind the wall of silence? One of the papers links her, but both mention Ms. Schlussel as the source. Drudge? Nope. He doesn’t deign to stoop that low. Lucky for her because a Drudge lanche can bring down your site.
Obama’s group is setting Olympic-level records for incompetent political appointments, and for Democrat vengeful retaliation against professional, career bureaucrats. Not to mention attacks against private citizens who fail to love him. See the IRS investigations into the Tea Party — just hassle and hatred and stalling in hopes of disheartening them — us, in fact, since we’re members of the Tea Party in Virginia, though I am too disabled to attend any more. Oh — how about the immediate IRS threats against the casino owner in Las Vegas who had the temerity to give lots of money to Mitt Romney?
Clinton was real good at this; just ask The American Spectator or those Arkansas state troopers. Or recall what Hillary did to the professionals at the White House Travel department (ruined their careers and impoverished them) for no better reason than using the place as a favor for her political pals. And then there was her illegal use of confidential employee files to dig for information on her “enemies”. Feh. Nixon was an amateur compared to Bill and Hill but that didn’t stop those Washington Post reporters from getting rich off peddling Nixon stories for years while ignoring much of the criminality and sleaze of the Clinton years. They all liked Clinton and he liked them back as long as they remained useful.
But Obama demeans the office of President in ways even President Clinton wouldn’t have. Sure, Clinton would rent out beds at the White House, sell last minute pardons, and his minions would destroy their offices in the executive branch on the way out the door, but he and his ilk were just Arkansas common place trash. Ask any Southerner what the epithet “common” means. Most of ‘em will point to Bill and Hill. No, she wasn’t Arkansas-bred, but Hillary always was a quick learner.
In fact, what Janet is doing in DHS is similar in style to what Hillary did to the permanent bureaucracy in the White House travel office, just so she could put her friends in place. Ruin lives, I mean. That goes for her underhanded access to supposedly private personnel files.
But that was then. This new snake charmer, Obama, is more snake than charm. Bill schmoozed everyone all the time, not just when he wanted money. Sure, money was the goal, but Billy loved the process of pressing flesh. Lots of flesh for various reasons. He called people, he knew how to massage egos and fannies equally well and he loved it all.
Obama? Not so much. Sometimes one could almost mistake him for an Episcopalian — or as we say amongst ourselves, “God’s frozen people”. Obama loves to campaign — must be his preacher genes (is that racist?) — but begging rich donors? Enh. I figured it out: that’s why he had to have Joe Biden do his sudden clumsy shtick about being in favor of gay marriage, apropos of nothing. Due to Obama’s previous support of DOMA (Defence of Marriage Act) in order to attract the middle vote in 2008, the very wealthy gay-lesb community weren’t stepping up to the plate this time. So here comes Joe, stage left, to make his dumb-sounding statement in favor of gay marriage. And then, stage right, Obama could slink in reluctantly and say his set piece about gay unions being cool after all — leading the larger middle-of-the-road traditionalists to think he’d been politically cornered into it by Flappin’ Lips Joe. Now that’s transparency for you. Final result: the gay spigot finally turned on.
Obama is selling not only his soul in his quest for money, but his family time too. Wanna eat dinner with the First Couple? Pony up. And while you’re at it, send us your wedding presents to pawn for campaign cash. No one has offered up her first-born yet, but I’ll bet that’s not off the table.
That lawsuit Ms. Schlussel has on pdf is dynamite. The plaintiff has requested a jury trial which leads one to conclude he would rather trust his peers in such a proceeding than whatever judge he might draw in that district court. This demand is proof regarding the advice to hire a lawyer when possible: they know where the landmines are in our increasingly dangerous judicial pastures. A jury’s presence will likely temper the inclinations of a political judge.
He ought to have refused the pressure to add another horrifically dense layer to an already bloated federal government. I liked Bush (and there was much to like, so don’t start with the Bush hate in the comments — he’s not the point of this sordid story. Choose a harder target) but the final accounting of history — REAL history — may not be kind, given his many wrong-headed decisions. I mean specifically his “headed in the wrong direction” toward bloated, opaque central government Ditka.
On the other hand, when I line up his many sins against conservatism, I have only to consider his two opponents to realize the political establishment is the real problem. I look at his two opponents and feel relief that he won both times:
The first was a life-long politician, a zealot who wrote about our need to eliminate the internal combustion engine and whose life has since come apart in sleazy details about his sexual proclivities and his obscenely humungous carbon footprint. But never mind about those; we’d never have heard about them had he not become eventual fair game for our jornolists. That’s what happens to the loser.
The second was even worse: a mean-spirited man who lied about his service in Vietnam, who made his “hate America first” credentials part of his agenda — an inclination he inherited from his daddy who was a career time-server in the State Department. Daddy’s book is still available in the bowels of the internet. Kerry, too, was safe game for the jornolists when he was found to be hiding his yacht in another state, safe from the tax-crazy Massachusetts residents he is supposed to serve. A story that never would have seen the light of day had he won.
Third time lucky: we now have Obama to realize the failed dreams of both those leftists and to do it with even more mean-spirited spitefulness than either of them possessed.
Janet Napolitano is just one of Obama’s grossly unfit appointments. Surely she is matched by tax-dodger little Timmy Geithner at Treasury and race-baiting Eric Holder at the Department of Justice. There are dozens of others in this grim administration and collectively they represent our ruination. Re-elect Obama and the plunge into incompetent degradation will be full tilt..
As for George Bush, his attempts to rein in the worst of the housing greed during his last years went unheeded, and for that attempt on his part, History will be kinder.
Meanwhile, I hope his work with orphans in Africa serves as a kind of expiation or solace for seven years in Hell.
Ah, the pity.
