Ever get the feeling that you can’t believe any political news any more? Well here some reasons for cover up.
The terrorist, Nidal Hasan… who killed THIRTEEN soldiers at Fort Hood has been receiving his pay for the past 3 years… to the total of $278,000 !!! That’s two hundred and seventy eight THOUSAND dollars…
in the meantime, because the president declared the murders… “workplace violence”… the victims and families cannot receive the Purple Heart (which gives them Purple Heart benefits), nor receive military health benefits…
so the MUSLIM terrorist gets all that money from us, the tax payers, and the victims get nothing… way to go Obummer…
I swear… that man just cannot use the words Muslim or TERRORIST can he?
Guess this is why nothing gets to the newspapers or T.V.
Who knew? Almost everyone but the general public??!! Certainly the legacy media people all knew, and have known for months! The conclusion I draw is there is definitely more to be known about Benghazi , the IRS brouhaha.
The only question is: who at the NYT and the other major papers is connected to the WH, DOS, DOD, EPA, etc, etc, etc?
This explains a few things..
From my Texas guest blogger….Denise
Obama, Holder, Reid, Pelosi and “Hilldabeast” Clinton can do anything they want, legal or illegal and NO ONE holds them accountable! The ONLY way these people can be brought to justice is through an appointed “Special Counsel”…..Papa Mike
In 2011, CBS reporter Sharyl Attisson broke the story that Eric Holder knew about the gun sting long before he said he did.
This week, Sharyl Attkisson announced that her computers were compromised by the Obama administration.
The Politico reported:
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.
On Sunday, The Washington Post reported that the Justice Dept. had searched Rosen’s personal e-mails and tracked his visits to the State Dept. The court affadavit described Rosen as “at the very least, either as an aider, abettor and/or co-conspirator” of his government source, presumably because he had solicited classified information from that source — an argument that has been heavily criticized by other journalists.

Injured soldier outraged suspected shooter receives salary while his family financially struggles in recovery
The Department of Defense confirms to NBC 5 Investigates that accused Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Hasan has now been paid more than $278,000 since the Nov. 5, 2009 shooting that left 13 dead 32 injured. The Army said under the Military Code of Justice, Hasan’s salary cannot be suspended unless he is proven guilty.
If Hasan had been a civilian defense department employee, NBC 5 Investigates has learned, the Army could have suspended his pay after just seven days.
Personnel rules for most civilian government workers allow for “indefinite suspensions” in cases “when the agency has reasonable cause to believe that the employee has committed a crime for which a sentence of imprisonment may be imposed.”
Meanwhile, more than three years later soldiers wounded in the mass shooting are fighting to receive the same pay and medical benefits given to those wounded in combat.
Retired Army Spc. Logan Burnett, a reservist who, in 2009, was soon to be deployed to Iraq, was shot three times when a gunman opened fire inside the Army Deployment Center.
Drip… drip… drip.
Via NBC News:
The Justice Department’s secret subpoena for AP phone records included the seizure of records for five reporters’ cellphones and three home phones as well as two fax lines, a lawyer for the news organization tells NBC News.
David Schulz, the chief lawyer for the AP, said the subpoenas also covered the records for 21 phone lines in five AP office lines — including one for a dead phone line at office in Washington that had been shut down six years ago. The phone lines at four other offices – where 100 reporters worked — were also covered by the subpoenas, Schulz said.
Although AP had given general information about the subpoenas last week, it provided new details Monday about the number of cell and home phone records as it considers possible legal action against the Justice Department.
Schultz said the subpoena for a Washington phone line that had been shut down years ago raises questions about assertions by Deputy Attorney General James Cole, in a letter last week, that the subpoenas were narrowly crafted and only issued after a “comprehensive investigation” that included over 550 interviews and reviewing tens of thousands of documents.
Cole had said in his letter to the AP that “consistent with Department policy, the supboenas were limited in both time and scope.”
For Twenty-Seven months the Obama IRS refused to approve any Tea Party applications for tax-exempt status.
At the same time the Obama IRS approved dozens of progressive applications.
USA Today reported:
In February 2010, the Champaign Tea Party in Illinois received approval of its tax-exempt status from the IRS in 90 days, no questions asked.
That was the month before the Internal Revenue Service started singling out Tea Party groups for special treatment. There wouldn’t be another Tea Party application approved for 27 months.
In that time, the IRS approved perhaps dozens of applications from similar liberal and progressive groups, a USA TODAY review of IRS data shows.
As applications from conservative groups sat in limbo, groups with liberal-sounding names had their applications approved in as little as nine months. With names including words like “Progress” or “Progressive,” the liberal groups applied for the same tax status and were engaged in the same kinds of activities as the conservative groups…
…Like the Tea Party groups, the liberal groups sought recognition as social welfare groups under Section 501(c)(4) of the tax cod, based on activities like “citizen participation” or “voter education and registration.”
This is criminal.

ERIC HOLDER’S JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, already under fire for seizing AP phone records, also obtained records pertaining to Fox News’ chief Washington correspondent James Rosen’s efforts to report leaked material on North Korea’s nuclear threat, even calling Rosen a criminal ‘co-conspirator’ — a charge the news organization called ‘chilling.’
Jazz covered White House communications strategist Dan Pfeiffer’s no good, very bad day on the Sunday talk shows yesterday, but one exchange in particular is worth revisiting — especially since Pfeiffer may have set a new gold standard for throwing gasoline on a political fire. As part of doing the full Ginsburg (as Susan Rice did eight months ago almost to the day with similar impact), Pfeiffer sat across the desk from Bob Schieffer on CBS’ Face the Nation, and Schieffer wondered … why? Why does the White House rush to take credit for every little success, Schieffer wondered, and then send out ignorant flacks in every failure and scandal? Mediaite noted the exchange:
“Is this president out of touch?” the CBS host asked, addressing the talk about Obama often appearing to be a bystander. The “actual, real scandal” would have been if the president had interfered with an investigation, Pfeiffer countered.
Schieffer pressed on though: Later in the interview, he denied any desire to be “argumentative,” but pointed out that when the executive branch does something right (e.g. killing Osama bin Laden), the White House has no “hesitancy” in taking credit.
“But with all of these things, when these things happen, you seem to send out officials many times who don’t even seem to know what has happened,” he added, as contrast.
“And I use as an example of that Susan Rice who had no connection whatsoever to the events that took place in Benghazi, and yet she was sent out, appeared on this broadcast, and other Sunday broadcasts, five days after it happens. And I’m not here to get in an argument with you about who changed which word in the talking points and all that. The bottom line is what she told the American people that day bore no resemblance to what had happened on the ground in an incident where four Americans were killed.”
Not quite responding to the point Schieffer was making, Pfeiffer reverted to the much-repeated argument about how the administration put forth information as they received it.
Schieffer reiterated that he was speaking about the “PR plan.”
“Why did you do that?” he asked. “Why didn’t the secretary of state come and tell us what they knew and if you knew nothing say, ‘We don’t know yet’? Why didn’t the White House chief of staff come out? I mean I would, and I mean this as no disrespect to you — why are you here today? Why isn’t the White House chief of staff here to tell us what happened?”
Pfeiffer didn’t provide an answer, providing an ironic proof of Schieffer’s point. The CBS host wasn’t done, either. After Pfeiffer left, Schieffer offered this editorial welcoming viewers to “Dumb and Dumber”:
