Apparently, and this has bled beyond Fox news so I guess it’s considered actual news by even the liberal media now, it seems the government lied. This is the basis of all this news, this is what’s at the root of it all, and if this amazes you, you are officially a fucking idiot. First let’s deal with the IRS.
The IRS has always been and will always be used to target specific people and groups, usually those who are diametrically opposed to the executive branch. I’m not looking up the info, but I recall numerous reports of suspiciously and seemingly ‘targeted’ audits Under Bush, Clinton, the other Bush, Reagan, etc. This shit has been going on forever, I do not see why this is news to so many people today. What, you actually thought the IRS was an impartial, fair arbiter of who the government steals from? All government agencies are political, there is not such thing as an apolitical government agency. They will act in accordance with the politics of the people who run them, period.
Now to Benghazi. Apparently the white house and/or the state department demanded or massaged some changes into the ‘talking points’ memo that involved removing all references to terrorism, and all references to the fact that the CIA warned of impending attacks in the area. It’s also possible that no aid was dispatched to head off a potential goat fuck right before the election, and that the changes to the memo were pushed for the same reason.
This situation is a little more serious because there are four dead people, but also keep in mind these people were in a known hostile territory, not at Wal Mart. If you go around to other people’s countries trying to tell them how to live and supporting your ‘suggestions’ with guns, they might get pissed and shoot back. Americans aren’t immune to bullets, it’s about time people remembered that foreigners can fight back. However, what’s really driving this is not the four dead people or, if you believe in the state government, the complete and obvious cluster fuck nature of this event.
What’s really driving this story now is a lover’s quarrel. Most main stream media are liberal and happy to shill for the Democrats. Fox news and more local main steam affiliates are conservative and happy to shill for the Republicans. The relationship between the political parties and their media arms is much like that between a married couple who are on the rocks, but who have decided to stay together for the kids, or for financial reasons, etc. They have agreed to keep up public appearances but behind the scenes they’re taking care of themselves and seeing other people. But, now one of them has gone rogue, presuming upon the relationship and their partner has gotten pissed.
You see, the main stream media outlets were happy to let this story slide, move along, nothing to see here. Fox News pounded on the story, and while they are wrong in how serious this is, Fox was right in that there was way more here than the white house had let on. The main stream media is now pissed because it has been made to look ridiculous. Fox essentially told them that the Obama administration wasn’t keeping up its end of the mutual agreement and they shrugged Fox off as partisan. Which they are, but Fox was also right. The president and his administration presumed upon their relationship with the main stream media and played them. And now, the media are pissed and biting back.
That is what’s driving this story now. Not the four dead people, not questioning what the fuck the actual need for ‘ambassadors’ is to begin with or what these political hack fucks actually do that’s worth while. No, the main stream media is simply pissed that it was publicly cuckolded by the Obama administration. That’s it. And the only real interesting thing here is how far are they going to take the lover’s quarrel. My guess is not too far, unless Fox pulls another under reported scandal out and the main stream ignores it again at the behest of the white house only to find out they have been played, again. Then they might turn on Obama en masse. But right now they’re just a little snippy.
