It Was 20 Years Ago Today

Twenty years ago today Matt Drudge released a blockbuster story about a White House intern and her sexual affair with then President Bill Clinton. The story was investigated and filed by Michael Isikoff at Newsweek but that publication quashed the story allegedly because it could not confirm some of what Monica Lewinsky was heard saying on recordings of phone conversations and because some of her words led them to question her credibility.

Drudge had no such worries when he released the story to his then 85,000 subscribers. In no time flat that story was the talk of the town and Drudge’s page received so many visitors that it could not be accessed by some who wanted to read the story. It is quite possible that story jump started what is now the most formidable news aggregating website.

Newsweek decided not to run with the story and the rest of the MSM ignored it until it got too big to dismiss. All must have decided that the then 23 year old intern was not as credible and a man known to be a serial philanderer. His initial run for the presidency was clouded with sexual exploits (sexploits?) including a long term affair with Gennifer Flowers. Clinton denied the affair and his wife set up a war room to handle so called bimbo eruptions. As the world would later find out, not only was Lewinsky telling the truth but so was Flowers.

Clinton lied about everything until he was cornered with a DNA stained dress. He was impeached for committing perjury but found not guilty by a Congress we now know has a slush fund of taxpayer dollars to quash sexual allegations levied against its members.

Clinton was never held accountable for the sexual misconduct and the rapes reported by other credible victims. To this day he is a free man and cherished by many liberal women who quickly react when others are accused of the same things.

It looks like Lewinsky, Flowers and others were all #metoo before it was the in thing.

Twenty years! Can you believe that? They grow up so fast. It seems like it was just yesterday Monica was crawling around the Oval Office putting things in her mouth.

The government has needed an enema for a long time.

What Does Newsweek Know That We Don’t?

Obama Not Prez

Newsweek is one of the lamestream media mouthpieces for Barack Obama and the Democrats. Given that this periodical is a firm supporter of the liberal/progressive destruction of America it is quite surprising to see this cover. Look at what it has printed on it:

The Making of a
Terrorist Coddling
Warmongering
Wall Street Loving
Socialistic
Godless
Muslim
President

*Who isn’t actually any of those things

If Obama isn’t actually any of these things then it means Newsweek is saying he is not the President. What does Newsweek know that we don’t?

This is quite a dilemma for the magazine. Newsweek cannot back off this and say it was mistaken about the president part or it admits that a mistake appears on the lost and if one mistake appears then there could be more than one. Newsweek cannot fix this problem without admitting that it could be in error on any item on the list and if it lets the list stand then it is admitting that Obama is not president, at least in the eyes of the people who made the cover.

Funny how things like this work out. In its eagerness to defend Obama the magazine actually insulted him. This is what happens when liberal/progressives live their lives of lies.

In the same spirit of living a lie, Obama was asked why so many people think he is a Muslim. He answered by saying he can’t go around with his birth certificate attached to his forehead. What does his birth certificate have to do with whether people believe he is a Muslim or not? Was Obama throwing the birther issue into the equation because racist and bigot no longer work or was he preoccupied with this issue?

I don’t know and I don’t care but I do know Don Surber had it right.

The birth certificate attached to his forehead would be better than the big L that is currently there…

Cave Canem!

Obama Knocks Newsweek On Recession Over Cover

Newsweek has a cover with a balloon containing the words “The recession is over.” Barack Obama poked a little fun at that cover in a town hall style meeting:

“I don’t know whether you’ve seen the cover of the latest Newsweek magazine on the rack at the grocery store, but the cover says: ‘The Recession is Over,'” Obama said, prompting chuckles in the audience.

“I imagine you might have found that news a little startling,” he continued, to more laughter. “I know I did.”

The last thing Obama needs is for people to be reminded that his 787 billion dollar stimulus did not work and that the economy is worse now than it was back when the stimulus was passed. Obama promised us unemployment would not go above 8% if it was passed and would hit more than 9% if it was not. His caveat was that it could go even higher if we did nothing.

They rushed the stimulus through and unemployment is 9.5%, there are no signs of recovery and those so called shovel ready projects have not started. Few if any jobs have been created and the dollar gets weaker by the day. Obama’s stimulus has been a failure and the Newsweek cover mocks this (though they might be sincere in their assertions).

So Obama poked a bit at the cover claiming the recession is over. In February, Newsweek featured a cover with the words “We are all Socialists now.” Obama made not one peep about that cover. He runs around claiming that those who call his health care plan Socialist are wrong but when a major magazine called us Socialists he never said it was not true.

He was quick to hit the one about the recession but silent about the one on Socialism. Perhaps it is because he knows the recession is not over but he wants us all to be Socialists.

I know Obama is a Socialist and that he is leading this country down the road to Socialism and that is probably why he made nary a peep about the Newsweek cover claiming that we are Socialists.

Sometimes silence speaks louder than words…
