Just Who Is Leaking All The Vital Secrets That Were Clearly Intended To Politically Benefit Obama To The Detriment Of America? An Interesting Read.

June 14, 2012

One of the interesting things about the deadly leaks that are plaguing America to the point where even Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein says nobody trusts America anymore and nobody will work for US intelligence knowing that we’ll betray them and get them and their families killed comes down to the distinction Obama and his hacks are making between “Obama administration” and “Obama White House.”

Feinstein is on the record describing the seriousness and unprecedented EXTENT of these leaks:

In an interview with Wolf Blitzer on the Situation Room, Feinstein said, “I think what we’re seeing, Wolf, is an avalanche of leaks and it is very, very disturbing. It’s dismayed our allies. It puts American lives in jeopardy. It puts our nation’s security in jeopardy.”

General Jack Keane said on June 12th that America has not had such a damaging betrayal of secrets apart from traitorous spies who turned over American secrets to our adversaries.  And that is true.

Pharaoh Obama said “The notion that my White House would purposely release classified national security information is offensive.”:

I find it “offensive” that Obama is walking around talking about “MY” White House.  The man DOES know he’s not “president for life,” doesn’t he?

I find it “offensive” that Obama hasn’t appointed a special prosecutor to find the source of these leaks in an impartial and objective manner. I find it offensive that this same turd along with his vice president both demanded that Bush appoint a special prosecutor in regard to the Valerie Plame case given that EACH of the leaks under Obama are ALL worse than anything that was revealed in the Valerie Plame case.

I find it “offensive” that Obama is so guilty of such a massive double-standard it is beyond unreal.

There’s an interesting exchange between White House Blatherer Jay Carney and the press:

Q Senator McCain over the weekend accused the Obama administration of intentionally leaking information to enhance Obama’s image as a tough guy for reelection. Do you have a response to that?
 
MR. CARNEY: Well, my response is the same as it was last week, which is that is wrong and absurd. The President addressed this himself from this podium on Friday. He takes very seriously the need to protect classified and sensitive information, and that has been his posture since he took office.
 
Q How can you say unequivocally that it’s wrong and absurd? Have you done an internal investigation?
 
MR. CARNEY: I can tell you that this administration — this White House, under the guidance of the President, takes very seriously the need to protect classified and sensitive information, the need to do so for our national security interests to protect our counterterrorism operations and other operations that are undertaken by our forces and our government.
 
I can point you to the authors of some of the materials that have led to this discussion and what they’ve said about the fact that they were not directed to or provided information by the White House in regard to this, that their work was the product of long investigation and reporting elsewhere.
 
This President — I just would point you to his comments on Friday about his views on this matter.
 
Q The President says he has zero tolerance for these kinds of leaks. Then why not support a special prosecutor?

Carney first says “this administration” and then immediately edits himself to say “this White House” isn’t responsible for the leaking.    And for all of Obama’s “being offended,” there is absolutely no question this incredibly damaging series of leaks a) were clearly intended to politically benefit Barack Obama by depicting him as a strong leader making the tough decisions and b) that the articles betraying the existence of Seal Team 6, the articles betraying Stuxnet, the articles betraying Obama’s “kill list,” etc. all directly QUOTE high level Obama administration officials.

Last week, the Times ran two sensational front-page articles, one detailing the president’s personally administered list of terror suspects targeted for assassination—the so-called “kill list,”—the other a book excerpt about the origins of the cyberwarfare program, codenamed Olympic Games, out of which came the Stuxnet virus. Both pieces were widely seen as boosting the president’s credibility on national security just as the 2012 presidential race kicked into high gear. Both pieces cite anonymous current and former high-level officials in the administration. The White House has denied that the leaks were authorized, calling the suggestion “grossly irresponsible.”

Sources, methods, entire classified programs previously not known to have existed or the existence of which had been denied, have been revealed for political purposes.

Take the Obama “kill list” in which he is revealed to be looking over “baseball cards” of terrorists and personally selecting which terrorists to kill and even who is in the room with him while he’s doing it. Only somebody who had been in that Oval Office with Obama could have known those details. There just aren’t very many people who could have possibly known this stuff.

Some are saying that it isn’t the “White House” because it is the VICE PRESIDENT’S HOUSE.  But most are saying it simply has to be someone in Obama’s National Security team.  But there is simply no question whatsoever that it is someone at that level and that close to Obama.  NONE.

In any event, the following is interesting to read:

National Security adviser Tom Donilon the White House leaker in chief?
Published June 11, 2012 | Hannity | Sean Hannity
Special Guests: Ann Coulter, Pat Caddell

This is a rush transcript from “Hannity,” June 11, 2012. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

SEAN HANNITY, HOST: There are new developments tonight regarding the White House leak scandal. Now, you may recall a number of top secret programs and data has been disclosed to reporters in recent months by quote, “an unnamed Obama insider.”

Now Republicans and Democrats alike have publicly stated that the release of this information has in fact put American lives in danger. As a result, the Attorney General Eric Holder has appointed two U.S. attorneys to look into the matter. However, Republicans continue to demand that an outside special prosecutor be named to lead the investigation.

Also tonight, Democratic insider Pat Caddell is pulling no punches and naming names. He says he knows exactly who spoke to the New York Times and it is somebody with extremely close ties to President Obama. Listen to this.

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP, “THE VICTORY SESSIONS,” JUNE 10, BREITBART.COM)

PAT CADDELL, FORMER DEMOCRATIC POLLSTER: I’ll make news — the culprit is clear. It’s Tom Donilon, the National Security adviser.

Tom Donilon is a political hack. He was a political operative. He was the delegate counter for Carter and then Mondale. And he is now running around — he was also the guy working with Jim Johnson, corrupting Fannie Mae. And somehow, he is National Security adviser and he is known in Washington as the leaker in chief.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

HANNITY: All right. Caddell’s allegation is critical to this investigation, because Tom Donilon is the man who leads the presidential daily briefing each and every day inside the Oval Office. And that suggests to me that as this investigation continues, we may ultimately find out that the president himself was the one who, in fact, authorized the release of this highly classified information.

And here on more of this growing scandal, the author of the number one best seller “Demonic,” Ann Coulter, and the man you just heard from, former Democratic pollster, Fox News contributor Pat Caddell.

You’re a Democrat, you are saying definitively you know.

CADDELL: I didn’t say I definitively know. I said I definitively know who it was. You know, there is a difference. Look, you know, Dianne Feinstein — and remember, this is not any ordinary leagues, this is as she said putting American foreign policy and American lives in jeopardy. The New York Times reviewed Mr. Sanger’s book by Thomas Ricks, who is one of the Pulitzer Prize winning Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post foreign expert, defense expert. In his interview, in his review in the New York Times, he says, “And throughout Mr. Sanger’s clearly enjoyed great access to senior White House officials, most notably Tom Donilon. Mr. Donilon is in fact the hero of the book as well as the chief commentator and records of events,” and knows all about this stuff. When Gates, when we have the disclosure of Seal Team 6, Robert Gates went to the White House, saw some Tom Donilon, and said I have a communication strategy. You know what it is? Keep your f’ing mouth shut.

This stuff — Tom Donilon is known for this. He is political operative, as you heard in my remarks. When you think of a job that’s been held by George Bundy, Brzezinski, Brent Scowcroft, you know, the whole host of people, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell — this is a person whose job was to be a delegate counter. And is a political person.

HANNITY: This is important. And because, what did they know? When did they know it? But this was all designed, all these leaks makes the president look good supposedly.

ANN COULTER, AUTHOR AND COLUMNIST: Right. And with all due respect, I really don’t think it matters who leaked it. It is coming from the Obama White House. And who leaked the whole Seal Team 6 to brag about killing Usama bin Laden. That came out of the president’s mouth. And as Pat just mentioned, military and intelligence officials were going ballistic over that. And for a reason. Two weeks later, a helicopter shot out of the sky in Afghanistan and what is it? It’s Seal Team 6.

It is because of — I mean leaking by the United States government generally has been bad. It’s always much worse under the Democrats. Other leaks that have come out that have hurt in order to brag about Obama killing Usama bin Laden.

Hey — I see you were interrupting me. They had to brag about the help they got from a Pakistan pharmacist.

HANNITY: I’m not George Stephanopoulos, you know.

COULTER: — from a Pakistani pharmacist and he has been sentenced to 33 years in prison. There is the one more. The Saudi who was our — the double agent. He was the Saudi’s double agent working with us in the Arabian Peninsula. He reveals this bomb that is about to be sent to the United States. He is now on the run because his name is released.

HANNITY: You are right about the Pakistani as well. But this is important. This is the president in the Oval Office every Tuesday morning deciding who is going to be the next victim of a U.S. drone attack. This is also about Iran and the fact that we were able to, according to this book, penetrate the nuclear facilities and drive their computer systems haywire —

COULTER: And Obama taking credit for it.

CADDELL: And who is really bananas about this, the Israelis. Because they invited us —

HANNITY: They didn’t like it.

(CROSSTALK)

CADDELL: Well, they have to. They have to. It was their program. The fact, though, is that you have them sitting here. And that is why if you look at Sanger’s book, it’s all Donilon’s doing. It’s a big chapter there.

And I will tell you this. Let me say something about the president. You know, when his New York Times — and that is what it is — he could have called them up, they call Fox all the time saying, we don’t like what you are going to do. They could have called up as President Kennedy did and said, do not do this. Jay Carney could have called. Is there any evidence whatsoever the president said this would damage our —

HANNITY: No, they want this out.

CADDELL: Of course they do. You know, if it looks like a duck and walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck.

HANNITY: This is important. Think of how the Democrats reacted to the whole Valerie Plame issue.

COULTER: Oh I know!

HANNITY: And she wasn’t even a covert operative. Look at the special prosecutor, Scooter Libby.

COULTER: Right.

HANNITY: You know, this is infinitely worse. This is —

COULTER: Well, it’s two things. It’s pointless to have a special prosecutor here. They’re doing this to brush it under the rug until after the election. Point two is when The New York Times is printing classified intelligence information under a Republican administration, it’s to make the Republican administration look bad. When they’re doing it under the Democrat administration, they’re doing it to make the Democrat look good. Obama is — all of these articles have been like love letters to Obama, like, “Oh, what a tough commander in chief he is, and look how tough he is on terrorism.” He is putting people in jeopardy. These pour saps we persuaded to trust the United States of America. And now they are on the run, in prison, or dead. That is because they’re leaking this.

HANNITY: But Ann, somebody, if in fact we were able to pull this off in this Iranian nuclear facility, somebody walked that in there.

COULTER: Right.

HANNITY: That didn’t just end up getting into their system.

COULTER: That’s right.

HANNITY: What’s that?

CADDELL: That’s right. Because they needed to put in those, you know, what you stick in computers.

COULTER: So, now that double agents is in jeopardy, he could be dead.

HANNITY: He could be.

COULTER: Don’t trust the United States anymore. And unfortunately, the rest of the world doesn’t understand you can trust us when a Republicans is in the White House, you just can’t when a Democrat is.

CADDELL: I’m not going to make it partisan. And this element, this is really disastrous. And one of the things is in 2010 just before the election, Tom Donilon sat there and orchestrated the cartridge bomber incident as a public event when they’d already solved it. It is to make — influence the election. He is a politician. He is not a national security expert. Now, it’s like me being an astronaut.

But I’ll tell you, there are political dangers for the president. As we saw with gay marriage, when 60 some percent of the people said, they thought he did it for political reasons, and the same kind of reaction about him overtaking credit for the bin Laden.

COULTER: Yes.

CADDELL: There are many people in this country, I have seen the polls, severe number of people, including many Democrats and independents think he is willing to do whatever he it takes to get re-elected, even if it hurts the needs of the country.

HANNITY: We had this last question which is very key. How big does this get? Because, you know, compare anything. I mean, those that have make comparisons to Iran. How big of a deal is this, if, in fact, the president and his team, or within his administration are leaking information that is putting people’s lives in jeopardy, just to make him look good in an election year? Because that is what this allegation is. How big of a deal does this become, how does this impact the race?

COULTER: Well, I think it’s huge. But the way it gets out is only through shows like this, Sean Hannity. It is not from the special prosecutor. Perhaps through the Congress. But the point is, it doesn’t matter who leaked it. It’s coming from the White House to make Obama look good. It sometimes comes from his mouth.

HANNITY: That is the key point.

CADDELL: Look, all they’ve got to do is they’ve got to bring in the Congress. You’ve got a special prosecutor, one of them has been a contributor of Obama since 2003 when he was in the state Senate for God’s sake.

COULTER: The other one worked for Clinton.

CADDELL: And Eric Holder is, you know, we know what he does politically. It’s like John Mitchell for re-election. It is — but you know, the Senate and the House can call these people, put them under oath and do their own investigation. And that’s what they should do.

HANNITY: You mean, like Eric Holder in “Fast and Furious,” he may be held in contempt.

CADDELL: Yes. Well, the same guy who is doing the other. Yes, you know what I think about him.

HANNITY: Ann Coulter, it’s so good to see you. Did you have fun on “This Week”? Van Jones is your new best friend.

COULTER: I did. He is my new best friend.

HANNITY: Oh, good grief.

CADDELL: Ann and Van were great together.

COULTER: Yes. I’m going to turn him into a Republican.

CADDELL: “The Ann and Van Show.”

COULTER: Boy, I hope he doesn’t hear that.

HANNITY: I don’t think so. I’ll take that bet.

COULTER: And my first interview, October 1, new book, will be right here.

HANNITY: Right here with Ann Coulter. All right. Guys, good to see you. Pretty scary stuff.

COULTER: Yes.

Now I have no doubt that liberals are going to look at this panel and say that this is a biased group and that whatever they say should simply be totally discounted.  But former Obama Secretary of Defense Robert Gates is a more authoritative source, and look what he had to say about Tom Donilon:

Andrew McCarthy noted at the time that Defense Sec. Robert Gates had been quoted as saying that Tom Donilon would be “a disaster” if appointed national security adviser.

According to Bob Woodward’s book, Obama’s Wars Gates described Donilon, as clueless when it comes to the military and was deeply offended by the disrespect the former Fannie Mae lobbyist showed to senior military leadership.

The RNC has a profile on the Dem political operative who is now Obama’s Natl Security Adviser, here.

And Defense Secretary Gates’ prediction was confirmed in spades DUE TO LEAKS:

Robert Gates, the former defense secretary, reportedly blasted the national security team in the Obama White House for blabbing about the raid to kill Osama bin Laden. “Shut the f— up,” Gates told Tom Donilon, who is now Obama’s national security adviser, according to a book by New York Times reporter David Sanger.

Robert Gates.Robert Gates

“By Wednesday of that week, Gates went to see Donilon, offering up a barbed assessment of how the White House had handled the aftermath of the raid. ‘I have a new strategic communications approach to recommend,’ Gates said in his trademark droll tones, according to an account later provided by his colleagues. What was that, Donilon asked? ‘Shut the fuck up,’ the defense secretary said.”

The interesting detail is in Sanger’s new book, Confront and Conceal, on page 107

It is a confirmed fact from a senior member of Obama’s administration and one of the very few men who is respected by both sides that Tom Donilon is and has been a leaker of vital national secrets.

There is simply no question in my mind that Barack Obama specifically instructed somebody – and very likely his political hack national security advisor Tom Donilon – to start these leaks in order to puff up his image on foreign policy.  He sure as hell can’t run on his economy.

Public School Teacher Says American Flag ‘Offensive’; Praises Picture Of Dear Leader Obama

May 13, 2010

God damn America is thriving under Dear Leader Part Deuce.  If by “thriving” you mean “sucking poop through a straw.”

A good article on the story is here.

Can you imagine?  We now live in people’s republic in which a drawing of an American flag is reviled as “offensive,” but a drawing of Dear Leader Obama is praised.  In a public school.

Not a public school in North Korea, mind you.  But right here in the good old God damn the USA.

Of course, we should have know that Barack Obama’s fundamental transformation of America would lead to “God damn America.”  And so, yeah, we should have known that our government schools would send high school kids home for wearing their “offensive” and “inflammatory” American flag T-shirts while smiling benignly as hundreds of Hispanic kids wore their Mexican flag T-shirts all around them.

God damn America recognizes that America is a selfish, greedy place that should hang its collective head in shame as Dear Leader Obama travels the globe apologizing for how despicable we have been until the moment he took the oath of office.  Michelle Obama had never been proud of America until Obama was on his way to becoming president.  Why should she have been?  We clearly made Nazi Germany look like Disneyland until the glorious, beatific Dear Leader fundamentally transformed it into the Blessed Utopia it now is today.

You can’t blame this art teacher for despising the flag and the Republic for which it stands.  She’s taking her cues from her president, after all.

We’ve seen the casual contempt Obama has shown for the flag of the United States of America.

In the article above I recount the story of William H. Carney, a hero who received the Congressional Medal of Honor for valor for his inspirational service with the 54th Massachusetts Regiment during the legendary assault on Fort Wagner.

He was struck with one shot, but not being felled he continued, and then was struck with a second shot. On his struggle to cross the beach to the rear he met a member of the 100th New York Regiment who started to assist him, when Carney was struck with another shot in the head. The other soldier asked Carney to let him carrier the colors so he could more easily walk, but Carney refused, saying that no one other than a member of the 54th Massachusetts should carry the colors.

Finally, after an unlikely arrival alive at the rear guard hospital area, he saw his wounded and dying comrades who saw him carrying their colors and cheered him. He was able to tell them “Boys, the old flag never touched the ground.”

Of course, that was in the America of Lincoln.  In the God damn America of Obama, a thirteen-year-old girl is vilified for drawing a picture of her beloved American flag in a public school art class.

Oprah Left Trinity Church; Why Wouldn’t Obama?

May 31, 2008

You’ve heard the litany of terrible remarks that Jeremiah Wright has made from his pulpit at Trinity United Church:

“White greed drives world need.”

“The government gives them [African Americans] the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people. God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.”

“We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost.”

“We’ve got more black men in prison than there are in college,” he said. “Racism is alive and well. Racism is how this country was founded and how this country is still run. No black man will ever be considered for president, no matter how hard you run Jesse [Jackson] and no black woman can ever be considered for anything outside what she can give with her body.”

“America is still the No. 1 killer in the world. … We are deeply involved in the importing of drugs, the exporting of guns, and the training of professional killers. … We bombed Cambodia, Iraq and Nicaragua, killing women and children while trying to get public opinion turned against Castro and Ghadhafi. … We put (Nelson) Mandela in prison and supported apartheid the whole 27 years he was there. We believe in white supremacy and black inferiority and believe it more than we believe in God.”

“We started the AIDS virus. … We are only able to maintain our level of living by making sure that Third World people live in grinding poverty.”

“The government lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color. The government lied.”

“We supported Zionism shamelessly while ignoring the Palestinians and branding anybody who spoke out against it as being anti-Semitic. … We care nothing about human life if the end justifies the means. …”

That kind of thing.

It turns out that there are – contrary to all the liberal explanations, counter-denunciations, (and my personal favorite: “context”) – people who were actually offended by such remarks.

One of them, it turns out, is Oprah Winfrey.

Oprah never made a big deal about her membership (two years: from 1984-86), and she never made a big deal about leaving the church (most likely because she didn’t want people like me to make a big deal out of it).

But Oprah left because – as a Newsweek article reports – she realized that “Something Wasn’t Wright” at Trinity United.

The 12 May 2008 issue article by Allison Samuels says:

Winfrey was a member of Trinity United from 1984 to 1986, and she continued to attend off and on into the early to the mid-1990s. But then she stopped. A major reason—but by no means the only reason—was the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

According to two sources, Winfrey was never comfortable with the tone of Wright’s more incendiary sermons, which she knew had the power to damage her standing as America’s favorite daytime talk-show host. “Oprah is a businesswoman, first and foremost,” said one longtime friend, who requested anonymity when discussing Winfrey’s personal sentiments. “She’s always been aware that her audience is very mainstream, and doing anything to offend them just wouldn’t be smart. She’s been around black churches all her life, so Reverend Wright’s anger-filled message didn’t surprise her. But it just wasn’t what she was looking for in a church.”Oprah’s decision to distance herself came as a surprise to Wright, who told Christianity Today in 2002 that when he would “run into her socially … she would say, ‘Here’s my pastor!’ ” (Winfrey declined to comment. A Harpo Productions spokesperson would not confirm her reasons for leaving the church.)

So she’s been gone for something on the order of twelve or thirteen years. She was only a member for two, and she began to become aware that her national television audience – which was mostly women and mostly liberal – would be offended by the tone of way too many of Jeremiah Wright’s sermons for Oprah to be comfortable.

One of the things conservatives have been pointing out over and over is that the Wright comments such as the ones I have posted above were by no means “infrequent” or “out of context.” They were entirely representative of his black liberation theology. You wouldn’t expect him to say anything else!

He’s been saying radical, controversial, racist, and hateful stuff for decades. He was saying it in the 1980s, when Oprah Winfrey began to attend. He was still saying in the 1990’s, when she stopped attending. And you darn well better know by now that he’s been saying it it in the new millennium. He chose no less an occasion than the Sunday following 9/11 to deliver one of his most anti-American sermons of all.

You have to be driven by such a desperately flawed ideology that you are totally unable to understand the real world in order not to realize that. In other words, you literally have to have willed yourself to be stupid not to comprehend that Jeremiah Wright is not only radical, but radically toxic.

And Wright himself blew up the notion that he had been taken out of context when he chose to defend every single one of his statements in numerous media appearances.

The amazing thing is that Barack Obama refused to genuinely renounce Wright until his now-former pastor may have said (for Obama) the most offensive thing of all: that Barack Obama was a politician who does what politicians have to do and says what politicians have to say.

Now, from the sounds of it, Oprah Winfrey left not so much because her moral compass was offended, but because her rational, businesswoman’s sense was offended. But the point is that she knew YEARS ago that the stuff that was coming out of Trinity United was radioactive, and she didn’t want her boat being docked to that kind of outrage.

What on earth is wrong with Barack Obama’s character and judgment that he didn’t long ago come to the same conclusion?
