Obama is now proven yet again to be another leftie liar. He was only following orders from his puppet masters. He certainly wasn’t going to end wars and government corruption. Instead, he expanded them.
The corporate media has repeatedly said Obama’s administration was ‘scandal free,’ but in reality it was chock-full of scandals including the IRS targeting the Tea Party scandal, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the GSA scandal, the EPA scandal, sending Iran billions of dollars in the middle of the night, his prosecution of whistle blowers, the Solyndra scandal, and many more. His media covered for him by downplaying or ignoring his scandals at every turn.
Where have I heard that complaint before?
Oh I remember now. Our very own Media have been ignoring and covering up the constant lying from our very own COL.
It’s a reference to a comment by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who said last month in a speech before the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) banquet in California that the September 11 massacre was not a terrorist attack, but instead dismissed it as “some people did something.”
The Post’s accompanying editorial was brutal:
How pathetic: A member of Congress can’t acknowledge what happened on one of the most horrific days in US history.
In a March 23 speech, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) complained of “the discomfort of being a second-class citizen” before claiming the Council on American-Islamic Relations “was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and [Muslims] were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”
Some people did something? Wow. What a way to describe the heinous surprise attack on America that claimed 3,000 lives.
The paper went on: “Omar upped the obscure-the-facts ante Wednesday, declaring criticism of her ‘some people did something’ line to be ‘incitement,’ on the grounds that she has received death threats. Huh? She’d rightly be outraged if anyone minimized those threats as merely ‘some words from some people.’ Omar’s cavalier brushing off of the murder of thousands of innocents on 9/11 should shock all Americans, Muslims included.”
As the internet exploded, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez decided to jump into the fray.
“I’m not going to quote the NY Post’s horrifying, hateful cover. Here’s 1 fact: @IlhanMN is a cosponsor of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. She‘s done more for 9/11 families than the GOP who won’t even support healthcare for 1st responders – yet are happy to weaponize her faith,” the Democratic socialist wrote on Twitter.
Things took off from there.
Ocasio-Cortez then attacked Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) for a tweet he posted earlier this week when he called Omar the “First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something.’ “
Then, after a massive outpouring of contempt for AOC’s comments, she retweeted another posting that said “words matter” and acknowledged that “we were attacked by terrorists on 9/11.”
Meanwhile, Omar appeared on Stephen Colbert’s late-night show — but the host, a die-hard hater of President Trump, never asked her about the comment.
She said critics attack people for things “they might have insinuated.”
“It is very much embedded in a lot of our culture these days, where you will have people come after minorities for things that they say, that they might have insinuated,” she said. “No one goes after people like the folks on ‘Fox & Friends’ that actually say those words. It’s not about insinuation, right?” she said. “They actually said that I might not be an American. My loyalties might not be to this country. But I get called out. They don’t.”
Gotta’ wonder what she “insinuated” when she dismissed the 9/11 attacks as “some people did something.”
The US version of our Cindy strikes again. Maybe I should do a Cindy/Simon story on all her fuckups. It would probably be just as long.
Julian Assange, 47, the founder of WikiLeaks, was arrested today in the United Kingdom in connection with a U.S. charge of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion for agreeing to break a password to a classified U.S. government computer.
According to court documents unsealed today, the charge relates to Assange’s alleged role in one of the largest compromises of classified information in the history of the United States.
The indictment alleges that in March 2010, Assange engaged in a conspiracy with Chelsea Manning, a former intelligence analyst in the U.S. Army, to assist Manning in cracking a password stored on U.S. Department of Defense computers connected to the Secret Internet Protocol Network (SIPRNet), a U.S. government network used for classified documents and communications. Manning, who had access to the computers in connection with her duties as an intelligence analyst, was using the computers to download classified records to transmit to WikiLeaks. Cracking the password would have allowed Manning to log on to the computers under a username that did not belong to her. Such a deceptive measure would have made it more difficult for investigators to determine the source of the illegal disclosures.
During the conspiracy, Manning and Assange engaged in real-time discussions regarding Manning’s transmission of classified records to Assange. The discussions also reflect Assange actively encouraging Manning to provide more information. During an exchange, Manning told Assange that “after this upload, that’s all I really have got left.” To which Assange replied, “curious eyes never run dry in my experience.”
Assange is charged with conspiracy to commit computer intrusion and faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison if convicted. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
Extradition to the United States will be handled by the Department of Justice’s Office of International Affairs.
