Conspiracy theorists flummoxed in face of actual scandals

The Benghazi/IRS/AP trifecta was the moment critics of Obama and the government had been waiting for. Or was it?

If you spend every hour of your working life inventing new ways to attack Barack Obama or the government (or both), this is a very good week for you — or at least it should be. After trudging through the deserts of Benghazi and Fast and Furious for four years, trying to extract any tiny drop of scandal from stone, now suddenly comes manna from heaven, courtesy of the IRS and its misguided attempt to prevent political groups from taking advantage of the non-profit tax code. Then, even before you could digest the first course, the Department of Justice snoops on reporters. Glory be to Ronald Reagan’s ghost! The Promised Land of Impeachment can’t be far off.

Three scandals, one week? It’s almost too good to be true. What if it is?

For some of Obama’s biggest and most imaginative critics, the abundance of scandal stinks to high heaven and suggests the White House is intentionally downing itself in controversy — for some reason. Jon Stewart predicted the IRS scandal would confirm every anti-Obama conspiracy theory out there, but instead, Michele Bachmann, Rush Limbaugh, and Alex Jones smell a rat about the scandals, themselves (call it a meta-conspiracy).

They seem to have gotten so good at scandal alchemy that they don’t know what to do when someone hands them solid gold. When handed a real conspiracy, they instead are building a new conspiracy on top of it that dismissies the old one.

In an interview with WorldNetDaily — so we already know it’s going to be good — Bachmann said she thought the Obama administration intentionally released embarrassing news about the IRS targeting the Tea Party in some kind of elaborate Wag the Dog-style plot to distract from Benghazi:...

This makes no sense, even for Bachmann. Why would the White House want to trade a 70 percent bogus scandal for a 70 percent real one? And if they did want to distract from Benghazi, there has to be a better way than manufacturing negative information about yourself. This is a bit like a child intentionally peeing himself to “distract” his classmates from the fact that his pants just fell down.

Incidentally, Bachmann also wondered if the IRS precedent means the Obama administration “will deny or delay access to health care” for conservatives under Obamacare.“It now is an entirely reasonable question for the American people to ask,” she said.

But shockingly, this “fight scandal with scandal” notion is nots unique to Bachmann. Roger Aronoff, the editor of the conservative media watchdog group Accuracy in the Media worried that the IRS Scandal “threatens to overshadow Benghazi.” Rush Limbaugh laid out a related “theorem” on Monday, adding a splash of Obamacare. The idea is that media, at the behest of the White House, is being overly aggressive on the IRS scandal because it wants to get it over with so that the IRS then can be left to implement Obamacare.“The media is never on our side,” Limbaugh said of the negative coverage of Obama.

He also downplayed the AP snooping, predicting that the media is so sycophantic that “in two weeks, this will be forgotten, they will have made up over this and it’s not going to be that big of a deal.” He added that he hopes he’s wrong, but doesn’t expect to be.

Okay, you have not followed the history of this. On October 4, 2001, British Prime Minister Tony Blair released information compiled by Western intelligence agencies connecting Osama bin Laden to the Afghanistan's Taliban leadership as well as being the leader of the al-Qaeda organization. The Taliban government gave safe haven to Osama bin Laden in the years leading up to the attack, and his al-Qaeda network may have had a close relationship with the Taliban army and police.

You really need to keep up, sonny.

The original conversation had to do with me saying we invaded Afghanistan to get Bin Laden.

In jumped all you right whiners. Some claiming we invaded Afghanistan just because they allowed Bin Laden to be there implying that we would have invaded Afghanistan if Bin Laden was not there.

Then jumped in Dumbwaiter who claimed we invaded Afghanistan because it was Afghanistan that attacked us even though no hijacker was a Afghan citizen.

Then in jumped you, who claimed the the Taliban attacked us on 9-11.

I have news for you dumbasses.

Al Qaeda under the leadership of Bin Laden planned & launched the attacks of 9-11. It was not the Afghan government, the Afghan people, or the Taliban.

It was Al Qaeda.

It is said that Al Qaeda had camps right here in the US. Maybe we should have invaded ourselves.

<quoted text>Chris Good of ABC News reports that Jennifer Stefano of Philadelphia was so intimidated by the IRS that she closed her Tea Party down:
“In the documents that were sent to me, if you did not tell the whole truth by not putting all your personal information out there by Facebook, by Twitter, of your personal relationship with candidates and parties … it could be considered perjury and perjury carried jail time,” Stefano, 39, told ABC News.
“That was frightening and that’s why I shut it down. I shut my group down.”
Tom Zawistowski, former president of the Ohio Liberty Coalition, told ABC News that,“The reason for this attack by the IRS on the tea party was to make sure we were not as effective in 2012 as we were in 2010, and that’s what they did[.]“
This is about the American people. The O'bama administration interfered with elections.
so did Bush.

you nutjobs are going to find out that most of the MSM will report on the hypocrisy. and how do you respond to that? by saying Obama is worse? worse than what? if you have to say 'worse than' you've already lost the game.

<quoted text>a Recent poll shows that 40% of Americans don't know that ObamaCare is the law now.
a majority of these 40-plus percent voted for Obama (if they voted at all):
A new poll finds that many Americans are confused about the health care overhaul legislation commonly called “Obamacare.”
The Kaiser Family Foundation released results of a non-partisan study today finding more than 40 percent did not even know the law was in place.
“Four in ten Americans (42%) are unaware that the ACA [Affordable Care Act] is still the law of the land,” the report says,“including 12 percent who believe the law has been repealed by Congress, 7 percent who believe it has been overturned by the Supreme Court and 23 percent who say they don’t know enough to say what the status of the law is.”
The survey showed public opinion on Obamacare is at its second-lowest rating in the past two years.
Will Democrats from Obama on down immediately call for an all-out public awareness campaign reminding this 42 percent that the inexpensive and high quality health care that was promised them in 2008 is finally available by law — and millions will soon face a health care penalty “tax”?
There’s a better chance Joe Biden will finish the rest of the year without saying anything stupid. Heading into 2014, the above polling data is good news for the Democrats. Four out of ten people don’t know Obamacare is the law, and therefore aren’t expecting anything yet, which could translate to less angry backlash for the botched implementation:
Anxious Democrats fear a botched implementation of ObamaCare could dash their hopes of controlling the House and Senate for President Obama’s last two years in office.
At his press conference Tuesday, Obama acknowledged “glitches and bumps” in the law’s rollout, but some congressional DEMOCRATS FEAR MUCH WORSE.
One high-ranking Democrat told The Hill that it is his leading concern.
The Dems number one focus will be to DELAY THE INEVITABLE TRAIN WRECK until after 2014 while figuring out a way to blame it on Republicans.
Boy, are those 4 in 10 Americans in for a surprise come January 1!

Hope they figure out what's going on before then and have their 15 to 20 page application filled out for insurance if they don't have any now or the IRS is going to give them a little spanking with a stiff fine they won't be expecting either.

We now have a nanny state who specializes in punishment to keep us all in line and teach us a lesson about "fairness".

Many of us on the right have long been pointing out that Barack Obama cut his teeth in Chicago politics and long practiced the politics for which that city is famous. Or perhaps, I should say, infamous.
The only folks in the media who believed the Democrat’s lofty rhetoric about being some new kind of politician were those who paid more attention to his campaign’s, uh, well, talking points and gave short shrift to his actual record. That is, they took his claims and face value and didn’t investigate his claims.
No wonder they didn’t do much investigating when Tea Party groups started complaining that the IRS was subjecting them to an unusual degree of scrutiny. THE STORY IS NOT A NEW ONE.
THE ENHANCED MEDIA ATTENTION IS.

Jim Crow may be dead in most of America — but not at Columbia University.

Almost 50 years after the Civil Rights Act ended legal discrimination, the bastion of liberalism is finally trying to change one of its scholarships, which is restricted to “whites only.”

The Ivy League school’s Lydia C. Roberts Graduate Fellowship stipulates that the funds be given only to “a person of the Caucasian race.”

The rule is so discriminatory that it likely violates the US Constitution, according to Manhattan Supreme Court papers filed Monday by the fund’s trustees in an effort to get the restrictions lifted so the money can be awarded freely.

Ronald Reagan trained, armed, & funded Bin Laden so Republicans are responsible for 9-11?
