Department of ‘Justice’ Attack On AP And Now Fox News Reveals Obama Fascism Is Widespread

I’ve written it again and again before it was cool: Barack Obama was, is and will continue to be a FASCIST (see here and here and here).  It is more abundant now than it has ever been in American history that a fascist is our president.

As I write, the Obama administration is bogged down in three major scandals.  They tried to cover-up their failure in competency and ideology in Benghazi by covering-up who attacked America (terrorists, not “spontaneous protesters) and why THOSE TERRORISTS attacked America.  They have clearly used the IRS as a weapon against their political enemies by denying hundreds of conservative groups 501c4 tax exempt status (while not denying progressive groups).  It was a clear and obvious double standard and it was a clear and obvious politically motivated attack.  In the same way, the Obama IRS used “retaliatory audits” to punish and intimidate conservative groups.  Conservatives have horror stories as to how they were politically targeted by Obama for exercising their 1st Amendment freedoms which was followed by retaliatory audits from the IRS.  In fact, not just the IRS but NUMEROUS federal government agencies under Obama have engaged in a pattern of brutal government intimidation and suppression reminiscent of the days of Stalin.  In a clearly coordinated attack and rather like a pack of wolves, the IRS, the FBI, OSHA, and the ATF systematically targeted a woman named Catherine Engelbrecht whose crime was filing under our constitutional freedoms of speech to form a tax-exempt organization.  That is just one appalling case in a systematic pattern as some 500 organizations were specifically targeted by the Obama Chicago thug regime out of naked political bias.  The list of organizations that are finding out that Obama targeted them, also, is growing on a basically daily basis.  This same thug regime also illegally released the confidential federal tax records of American citizens to progressive groups that politically exploited the information that was illegal for them to have or use.

And they have began a war against the free press that is simply unprecedented.  As in never attempted before even by the likes of Nixon.

The Obama IRS targeting of conservative groups such as the Tea Party also included attacking Christian and Jewish groups as well as reporters who didn’t tow the Obama line.

Of that last story we began when Obama’s DoJ broke the law to seize the records of the leader in wire service reporting, the Associated Press.  Nearly two dozen phone lines involving some 100 reporters had their calls monitored without the legal requirement to inform the press of such intrusive and frankly UNPRECEDENTED monitoring having been met.

Eric Holder came out with this:

When asked if he understood why members of the media would find the records seizure “troubling,” Holder replied that the leak they are trying to plug was “very, very serious.”

“I’ve been a prosecutor since 1976, and I have to say that this is among, if not the most serious – it’s in the top two or three – most serious leaks that I’ve ever seen,” Holder added. “It put the American people at risk. And that is not hyperbole.”

Fascists always seize on a “crisis” in order to justify the seizure of more power.  It is simply what fascists have always done.

We immediately began to learn that what Eric Holder said claimed was a lie.  He claimed that the risk to national security was so serious that the Obama Injustice Department had to act in such a massive and unprecedented way.  But that was never true.  For one thing, the AP voluntarily delayed publishing the story in question until the federal government not only said it was okay, but until the federal government said that IT was going to go public with the story:

“We held that story until the government assured us that the national security concerns had passed,” AP President Gary Pruitt said in a written response to the Justice Department’s claims.

A report from The Washington Post appeared to give more weight to the AP’s claims.

According to the Post, the AP had been sitting on a scoop about a failed Al Qaeda plot at the request of CIA officials for five days. The morning they were supposed to release the story, journalists were asked by government officials to wait another day, citing safety concerns.

However, the CIA officials who first cited the security concerns said they no longer had the same worries. Rather, the Obama administration was planning to announce the success of the counterterrorism project the following day, according to The Post report.

But now we have another proof that Eric Holder is a liar without shame, without honor and without integrity.  We now know that, rather than unleash this kind of Stalinist surveillance monster for ONE media outlet in ONE circumstance that was “in the top two or three – most serious leaks that I’ve ever seen”, this Stalinism toward the media is an event that has occurred ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS.

It happened to Fox News, too, involving a different story.  Which means so much for the magnitude of the AP leak justifying the Stalinist means.

Report: Three Fox News Staffers Targeted By Justice Department
by John Nolte 20 May 2013, 10:20 AM PDT

Fox News reports that three Fox staffers, two reporters and one producer, were targeted by Barack Obama’s Justice Department. Fox doesn’t have all the details yet on reporter William La Jeunesse and producer Mike Levine, but their emails showed up in a IG report regarding Fast and Furious. Either their emails were leaked by the Justice Department officials they were sent to, or the email accounts of both were subpoenaed and invaded by government investigators.

The IG report does say that subpoenas were issued to obtain emails. Whose email was targeted is not yet known.

The third staffer is reporter James Rosen. The Washington Post‘s story behind that is downright chilling. What we have here is a case of the Obama Administration criminalizing reporting.

In June of 2009, James Rosen of Fox News reported that North Korea might respond to an increase in United Nations sanctions with even more nuclear tests. Rosen added that the CIA had learned this information from their sources within North Korea.

According to the Washington Post, upon hearing learning of Rosen’s report, the White House launched what many believe is an unprecedented leak probe that went so far as to criminalize standard news-gathering.

Because the Justice Department believes the source of the leak to Rosen was Jin-Woo Kim, a government adviser, he is facing federal charges that could land him a 10-year prison sentence.

But in their zeal to dig into reporter Rosen’s part in this (and supposedly firm up their case against Kim), the Post reports that FBI agent Regineld Reyes claimed there was “evidence Rosen had broken the law, ‘at the very least, either as an aider, abettor and/or co-conspirator.’”

After building their case against Kim, the Obama administration then went after Rosen, using his badge to trace his whereabouts in the State Department. But they also wanted Rosen’s emails. The Post writes that in order to do this, because of legal protections offered the media, the case had to be made that Rosen was a co-conspirator in a criminal conspiracy to leak national security secrets:

Privacy protections limit searching or seizing a reporter’s work, but not when there is evidence that the journalist broke the law against unauthorized leaks. A federal judge signed off on the search warrant — agreeing that there was probable cause that Rosen was a co-conspirator.

Rosen said the government never contacted him.

The thing you have to keep in mind here is that if Kim and Rosen did what the Obama administration says they did — it is something that happens almost every day between reporters and their sources. It is called everyday journalism; and the Obama administration is attempting to criminalize everyday journalism.

If sources are not leaking information to journalists, what is the alternative? Well, the only alternative is that the media write what the government tells them to write.

[Update: May 22, 2013]: And we can already see that this Obama Department of Injustice already has more proof of contempt for the Constitution and the laws that govern a nation.  It wasn’t just one rare case, it was a widespread thug political tactic to intimidate and suppress the free press.  Now we’re learning that it wasn’t just the 100 Associated Press reporters who used those 20 phone lines Obama bugged; we’re learning that it wasn’t just those 100 AP reporters plus Fox News correspondent James Rosen.  The Obama thug FBI commit slander against Rosen in an affidavit in order to see to it that only Obama’s lawyers could be present when they illegally wiretapped a JOURNALIST but bugged his parents, too.  Along with an as yet unknown number of Fox News reporters and journalists.

Eric Holder and Barack Obama went further in sliming and demonizing the role of the reporter than anything that has ever been seen in American history.  They literally said in the case of Fox News staffer James Rosen that the constitutional role of the media to serve as a check and balance against an out-of-control federal government is a crime.  They had to accuse the normal act of covering a news story as a CRIME in order to justify their Stalinist fishing expedition into a formerly free press.

Stop and think back to the bizarre wave of leaks that clearly came from the White House in order to spin the news in a way that would favor Obama.  It didn’t matter how many secrets and how many lives were at risk, then.  And then compare the same president who leaked all kinds of secrets when it was convenient for him to suddenly show his Stalinist fangs when the leaks didn’t politically benefit him.

Again, Barack Obama is the worst fascist who has ever contaminated the White House and tyrannized the American people.

And this nation will suffer for its sin in giving America a truly demon-possessed president.

    When it is politically advantageous to do so, the Obama administration has made sure that they have leaked information to the press. When potentially harmful stories have exposed incompetence or corruption, his administration has resorted to thuggery and intimidation in order to silence the media.

    Shayn Roby,

    Thanks for the note.

    The hypocrisy of this administration defies anything American history has ever seen. Obama is the guy who says that Bush’s $4 trillion over 8-year debt was “unpatriotic” and “un-American.” Then he goes on to increase his own debt by going on $7 trillion in four years and we’re playing “politics” if we remember Obama’s hypocrisy and his own self-admission of what an “unpatriotic and un-American” piece of slime he is. He votes against increasing the Bush debt ceiling when he was a senator only to say that anybody who does the exact same thing that HE did is somehow a traitor to America.

    This is a pattern that goes all the way back to the thug-in-chief’s first day as president.

    It is amazing. It is exactly what we should expect to see before the world collapses into economic ruin and the beast of the Book of Revelation comes.

    Creepier and creepier, I don’t know, I hope this isn’t too far off topic.

    A few days ago my wife and I went to Walmart to pick up some macaroni or some such. On arrival, in the parking lot we were approached by an early twenty something female. She was carrying a notebook or a clipboard so I got the impression it was some survey or sales crap. No such luck. She starts telling us about her desperate need to get to Ohio to go to a funeral.

    I just wanted to get away from her but my wife is somewhat more sympathetic. I told my wife, “I ain’t got no cash. Use your own discretion.” So my wife starts paging through some tens. I didn’t say it but I am alll like “geesh, don’t give her a ten.”

    Wife ends up giving her like three ones.

    On receiving this the girl looks to the sky and raises her hands up and exclaims. “Oh, thank you barak, praise barak!”

    My wife and I give her the look of ewwww, ick.

    She quickly explains that she is hebrew and that “barak” means “praise and glory.”

    In my mind I never really believed that there are actually people that people that have deified Obama. I always thought that allegations of such were just the stuff of hyperbole.

    Granted Obama and his minions plus many more individuals labeled ‘leftists’ are fascists. But what exactly is a fascist? To answer that question requires that we not only dig into the twisted psychology of individuals like Obama, Holder, Clinton, Saul Alinsky et al. but pull back the curtain that we might peer into the unseen realm, where the real source of pathology exists. Toward this end: “The Demonic in Our Postmodern Fabricated Alternative Reality”

  9. Michael Eden Says:

    Linda Kimball,

    That’s an interesting article you link to. I skimmed it over but will read it more thoroughly.

    I would submit that we can answer the question “What is fascism?” in historic terms rather than in merely psychological or even spiritual terms. Scholarly works such as Gene Edward Veith’s “Modern Fascism” take on this task and provide a plethora of expert sources on the history of fascism.

    A couple of key elements emerge: 1) Fascism is a form of socialism. It is the state rising up in power and seizing control of the nation and the people along with all the resources the nation and people produce. And 2) fascism is a violent reaction against transcendence. It amounts to the hatred of the God of the Bible and the determination to replace God with the State.

  10. Michael Eden Says:

    Dog Walker,

    Not that I wouldn’t have fallen for it too. But the woman was right: “barak” is in fact a Hebrew word signifying blessing, adoration or praise (בָּרַךְ Strong’s #1288).

    I don’t give money to people who come to me for money very often (as in “RARELY”). What I do is challenge anyone asking me for money with the question, “Why should I give you anything?” The only correct answer is “Because I am a human being created in the image of God and I need help.” What I do after my interrogation (and testimony) is buy the person some food. I don’t give money very often because most of the people who get that money will use it to buy booze or something even worse.

    But I’d have give that woman a TEN for her praise to God!

    Having said that, if I had given a woman money and she said, “Oh, thank you barak, praise barak!” I would have leaped to the same conclusion that you did. And yeah, it would have been “ewwww, ick.” And I would have wanted my three bucks back big time.

    Dog Walker,

    Sadly, I apparently must have plenty of BOTH, as I both watched and enjoyed the video.
