The big brother tyranny is from Obama and his IRS.

abolish the IRS

Impeach Obama

the news media came out with this AP phone scandal at the exact time the IRS scandal was breaking .if you think that is a coincidence i have swamp land to sell you. the news media wanted to hide the IRS scandal with the AP scandal( confuse everyone and draw conservative fire away from the IRS scandal and immigration bill)

Holder's judgment is faulty...skewed to the protection of his people not America or Americans.

Let the truth come out...and let the chips fall where they will.

Nachum ~:” Today at a Department Of Justice press conference Attorney General Eric Holder said he has no problem without letting the Associate Press answer the charges of a leak endangering national security.”

Is it a coincidence that newsmedia are pleading to get the 30 + survivors of Benghazi
to offer their voice as to what happened there ?
The truth covered up ?
Is it a national security issue ?
Is it a coincidence ?

Oh, this is not a coincidence. Holder probably advised the White House how to play this. It was very slick. Benghazi was spinning out of control and they needed something short of a war in the Balkans to take our minds off of the gunrunning and murders in Libya. They expose themselves on the 'Leak' and presto change-o Benghazi is bye-bye. Now, the fixer (Holder) recuses himself and simply says "I know nothing". "I trust the investigators (that I installed). It is all handed to a judge and they get a gag order.

By the time it reaches a committee hearing, all the major players in the scandal are gagged, even if they get a subpoena from the House or Senate. So, the president and all his advisors dutifully trot out and say "I know nothing". They count on the Democrat faithful to just eventually shut up and accept their bribes and use other means to intimidate any real threats. The DemocRATs own the Senate so, they have plenty of time to rig voting machines and make sure that they just barely control the majority and avoid impeachment. They house, even if they manage to impeach anyone, will never have it ratified. No. Not a coincidence. A carefully coordinated and planned news dump. I look for something very big coming soon. Something foreign and military.

Have you noticed that even some Demorats are breaking rank
and calling for an independent inquiry on Benghazi ?

It’s only taken some 8 months, and even now we are just beginning to get even a partial response from the Senate ‘elites’ ?
I smell fear ..
I smell blood in the water..
‘Fast and Furious’ made them brazen, and encouraged more illegality ,
Benghazi not only armed a foreign country rebels,
but also enemies of the State ,

Why would the liberal news media break this AP phone scandal at the exact time the IRS scandal is breaking?

you think this is coincidence?

NO it’s to draw conservative fire away from the IRS scandal and to distract from the IRS scandal

There is a “drug dealer” in the neighborhood. This is very serious, bad for the neighborhood. We don’t know who it is so we will record all outgoing calls of the people who live in the neighborhood to find out who the drug dealer is! Whoever gets the most calls must surely be the dealer. Brilliant!

Attorney General Eric Holder is concerned someone might be endangering national security.

Meanwhile a conga-line of millions of people entering the U.S. illegally continues...with legal immigration being a free for all for anyone to enter...

Even the Boston Bombing terrorist and their families collected 100s of thousands in tax paid prizes, gifts, meals and various other tax paid goodies.

Yet Holder is concerned about national security?

These people needed to be pulled out of their offices and criminally prosecuted and made examples of.

keats5 ~: “Today at a Department Of Justice press conference Attorney General Eric Holder said he has no problem without letting the Associate Press answer the charges of a leak endangering national security.”

It means that Holder has No Answer
and he is shifting the burden of proof to Associate Press
to respond to the allegation that “ a leak endangered national security.”
No question was directed to AP regarding a leak ..
therefore, it is a ‘non sequiteur’
The key question is ‘does this leak that you are alledging , have anything to do with Benghazi “ ??
The AP breaking a story prior to release by DOD is a cover-story , a ‘false flag issue’
The “Just-Us” Dept. is looking for leaks on Benghazi’
especially by the 30+ State Dept. employeees who know what REALLY WENT ON IN BENGHAZI
The bombing information release is a cover story to get the real information ..

And by the way, just what did they learn from the AP probe? Find anything? Or was this just another case of government run amok, tearing up the place, shooting the dog (figuratively speaking), and then saying “oh, never mind” or “wrong house, sorry”

It is a issue to uncover potential “whistleblower” leaks regarding Benghazi
and determine who may be weakening, and now may be willing
to report their obsevations to the press .

The number of people who could have leaked this information is limited. Had Holder polygraphed the National Security Council and their staff he would have found the AP source by now.

The national security breech crisis was one the White House decided they couldn't waste. They could use it as the rational to send a chilling message to the press. And they could use the telephonic record to make a list of all AP’s Washington sources and retaliate when unfavorable stories appear.

What's really scary for the affected AP personnel is that they don't know how far investigators might have delved and continue to delve into both their professional and personal lives.

They speak in pretzel logic. Without a script, BO does not use grammar rules, just emotion. And it works with his base.

The high schoolers around here beg me not to fast forward when he comes on, they are very brave.

Nevertheless, we all end up mouth breathing, shaking our heads.

His followers are watching and hearing, but there is no there there; only what they want to think he is saying.

He says nothing most of the time.

I had to break the quote down and add from a recent awareness report of his recusal.

The quote has a meaning twisted upon itself and the fact of his recusal. I believe the meaning of the quote is better worded as follows:

“I have no problem speaking save for the AP would have to explain why and how it leaked information that endangers national security.”

They were spying, looking for leads to wbistleblowers pure and simple. Brennen TOLD numerous people including press and past officials the details that were later reported. That is how the story got out. He testified he made the calls.

Jugears is a paranoid narcissist. They need to control the press. Intimidation.and threats keep em in line.

"you think this is coincidence? NO it’s to draw conservative fire away from the IRS scandal and to distract from the IRS scandal"

I smell a rat on the AP story. I think it's made up between AP and the administration to deflect from Benghazi. I also think they intentionally leaked the IRS story to deflect from Benghazi. The Benghazi story has the fuel to not only take down Obama, but also the dem's 2016 candidate, Hillary Clinton. I think the decision was made to saturate the news cycles for weeks and months to come with something that they could manage and to, at all costs, deflect from Benghazi.

Me too.

Plus, since Andrew died, the Breitbart sites suck big time. A 30 minute commercial before the video starts, I didn't even wait.

I don't know if that is a quote from Holder or if it was written by a Breitbart writer.
