Kind of a big deal…

The Obama administration was supposed to be the most transparent in American history.

Due to inept leadership, the entire country knows that that is not true.

Now, it is being reported that the previous administration’s surveillance of reporters is way, way worse than anybody imagined.

Here’s the scoop…

From Daily Wire:

On Thursday, the Columbia Journalism Review reported on the results of a Freedom of Information Act request for documents related to the Obama Justice Department’s attempts to crack down on leaks to reporters which reveal that the Obama administration’s actions against the press “were broader than previously known.”

[…]

“In 2013, the Justice Department launched a brazen attack on press freedom, issuing sweeping subpoenas for the phone records of the Associated Press and several of its reporters and editors as part of a leak investigation,” the authors report. While those subpoenas have long been understood as “a massive intrusion into newsgathering operations,” they note, the recently unearthed 2014 report reveals that the subpoenas targeting AP “told only part of the story.”

The Office of Professional Responsibility’s report on the Obama Justice Department’s subpoenas of AP phone records reveals that “the DOJ’s actions against the AP were broader than previously known, and that the DOJ considered subpoenaing the phone records of other news organizations, including The Washington Post, The New York Times, and ABC News,” the authors explain. The report also reveals “how narrowly the DOJ interprets the Media Guidelines, the agency’s internal rules for obtaining reporters’ data.”

Former Attorney General Eric Holder is still the only cabinet-level member in American history to be held in contempt of Congress.

He might actually run for president in 2020.

But first, Eric wants to do away with the “undemocratic” electoral college.

Classic.

He tweeted:

A good reform measure to support. Change the Electoral College by having a state’s electoral votes go to the national popular vote winner – not the person who won the state. The candidate who gets the most votes – nationally – is elected. Real democracy.

Joe Biden is quite the card, even after all these years.

Where he finds the marbles to tell a crowd of rallygoers that he and Barack Obama are responsible for the current thriving economy is anyone’s guess, but when you’re talking to the politically uninformed anything goes.

Check this out…

WATCH:

Joe Biden: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy… Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.”

Pitiful, Joe. Just pitiful.

Americans, Still Trapped in Afghanistan, Plead with Biden Administration

The trouble in Kabul continues…

Published

on

Just because the news cycle is short and forgetful doesn’t mean that conditions are improving in stories that have fallen to the wayside.  This is just the new human attention span, and the marketing industry’s ability to hone in on the speed needed to stay ahead of your own thoughts.

And so, despite the unwillingness of the mainstream media to speak on the subject, there are still American citizens trapped under Taliban rule in Afghanistan, begging to be brought home.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) on Thursday released a letter to President Joe Biden penned by an American citizen from San Diego, California, who is still trapped in Afghanistan alongside his wife.

“I am pleading with you again as a fellow proud American and as a husband to help my wife and I get home from Afghanistan,” the American citizen wrote in the October 15 letter to President Biden, weeks after the Biden administration’s botched withdrawal from the Taliban-controlled country.

Their tale is harrowing.

The American explained that he and his wife risked their lives to get through Taliban checkpoints, only to discover that the October 4 flight was canceled “because passengers did not have visas for UAE, where the flight was to land.” Another flight left on October 11, but the American said they never received a call to go to the airport.

“The third scheduled for 13 October was apparently cancelled. We learned details of the latter flights from our Congressman, the Hon. Darrell Issa, who flew to Doha to meet us, and not from the DOS,” he continued, explaining these were not their only attempts made since August.

President Biden promised that US forces would remain in-country until each and every American can get home safely, but then abided by a Taliban deadline to evacuate, abandoning a great many Americans and our allied partners.
