The Washington Post went after Richard Nixon and the cover up of the Watergate break in. Reporters Woodward and Bernstein were relentless and they finally got the goods. Their pursuit of the truth led to the resignation of Richard Nixon.
While there is evidence to indicate Nixon was not the one doing the bad things the reality is the blame fell on him and he ended up resigning. This never would have happened if The Post had not investigated. They, if you are to believe them, looked to expose government corruption.
If Nixon had not been forced to resign under threat of impeachment it is hard to imagine The WaPo would have ignored all of it and endorsed him for office (he was in his second term and could not run again but if he could it is hard to imagine The WaPo would ignore it and endorse him).
The WaPo though is no longer interested in government corruption. Truth is The WaPo was never interested in it when it involved a Democrat. Can you recall any in depth investigation into Bill Clinton’s sexcapades?
Hillary is corrupt. She has a long history of lying, doing illegal things, lying some more and then getting away with her misdeeds. There is no doubt about this and one only need look as far as her server and email issue to see it. She set up the server to avoid having her emails archived per the LAW. She did it for one reason, to skirt the law. Then when she got caught she deleted over 30 thousand emails that had been subpoenaed. That was also a violation of the law.
Hillary supporters will tell you that she was cleared of any wrong doing but that too is a lie. She was not prosecuted for her wrong doing. The FBI director laid out a case of point by point issues where Hillary Clinton broke the law. He also showed where she had lied about classified information and it has been shown that she lied to Congress. Amazingly, the FBI director decided not to push for charges claiming no reasonable prosecutor would indict such a case.
Maybe in his world that is true. It also helped that the Attorney General met with Hillary’s hubby and that these folks are all liberals. The fix was in and the reasonable prosecutor claim was the nothing more than the No True Scotsman fallacy. Plenty of prosecutors would have taken the case.
In any event, The WaPo has ignored all of the evidence of corruption and endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. Hillary made Nixon look like a piker and the very same newspaper that relentlessly pursued Nixon over government corruption is ignoring the mountains of evidence showing the corruption of Clinton and endorsing her.
They toppled Nixon.
They want to elect Clinton.
And this folks, is why most people do not take them seriously and why newspapers are going the way of the Dodo.
Never surrender, never submit.

The Washington Post and The New York Times received about 300 pounds of paperwork that contained some of the emails from the time Sarah Palin was the governor of Alaska. The newspapers enlisted volunteers to sift through the mails in hope of revealing dirt that might be contained in those emails. Make no mistake about it, the desire was to find something to smear Palin with and this is because the liberal media must smear her to protect its puppet master in the White House.
The effort was a bust. The emails revealed thus far indicate that Palin encouraged her staff to be open with the media, she took her work seriously and that she was principled. The media made itself look like a bunch of fools in this effort.
Here is an idea, and it is just an idea. How about the government release the electronic communications of Anthony Weiner to several newspapers and those newspapers enlist an army of volunteers to sift through looking for anything to smear him with? I bet they will find a lot more stuff by going through his emails than they did going through Palin’s.
While they are at it, why not release the electronic communications from Barack Obama. It would be interesting to see what kind of dirt an army of volunteers sifting through them could find.
Of the three, Palin is the only one who is not in office and is not paid by taxpayers and yet she is the one that the left is gunning for.
I imagine Obama’s electronic communications would bear more fruit than Palin’s did.
And Weiner’s would most assuredly render more dirt than Palin’s ever would.
No, let’s ignore Weiner and go after Palin. To the Lame Stream Media, she is more worthy of such attention.
Never surrender, never submit.

Barack Obama said he would have the most transparent administration and many liberals believe that this is the case. One who comments here will link to liberal sites and their claims of more transparency to bolster claims that are evidently not true. The very liberal Washington Post has taken issue with Obama and his regime and the lack (get that liberals, lack) of transparency:
But the reality has not matched the president’s rhetoric. We, presidents of two of the nation’s largest journalism organizations, and many of our thousands of members, have found little openness since Obama took office. If anything, the administration has gone in the opposite direction: imposing restrictions on reporters’ newsgathering that exceed even the constraints put in place by President George W. Bush.
Wow, EXCEED the constraints put in place by Bush. This must be making the Obama cheering section (read, media) lose their minds. How could their messiah be so non transparent after he promised them he would be so open?
Because he is a liar. He is a Socialist who will manipulate (and has) the media in order to pass his Socialist agenda.
Some are waking up but even with the complaints the media (including the authors of the cited piece) will support the empty suit in his bid for reelection.
They can’t help it, it is in their blood.
Never surrender, never submit.

The Washington Post hired Dave Weigel to be its “conservative” blogger but recent events show that Weigel is not conservative at all and used a journalist forum to routinely bash conservatives. I have not read this guy in the past and only know who he is because of the flap created when he said that Matt Drudge should set himself on fire. This, of course, was linked on Drudge and became a major story.
Why would the Washington Post hire a liberal to blog as a conservative? That would be like hiring a woman to blog about men’s issues or a white person to blog about how things affect the black community. I guess hiring a liberal to blog about conservative issues is what the Post calls reasonable. Unfortunately for Weigel, his antics ended in his resignation and while he is responsible, the Post set him up to fail.
The current flap over Washington Post blogger Dave Weigel has its roots in a fact that suprised me when I learned of it earlier this year: The Post appears to have hired Weigel, a liberal blogger, under the false impression that he’s a conservative. The new controversy over the revelation that he’s liberal is primarily the Post’s fault, not his, except to the degree that he allowed the paper’s brass to put him in an unsustainable position. Politico
This guy would have been more successful if the Post would have hired him as a liberal blogger and allowed him to spew his vile words against the right. Liberals in the media are expected to do this so it would have been no big deal but the way things were done ensured that it was just a matter of time before the whole thing imploded.
Perhaps the Post was hoping to increase circulation by including a conservative point of view.
It might have helped if they had actually done that.
Never surrender, never submit.

William Daley wrote an Op-Ed piece for the Washington Post and in it he tells Obama that the decision of some Democrats to retire rather than run for reelection as well as the defection of Parker Griffith spells trouble for the left going into next year’s election. Daley’s suggestion is that Democrats plot a more moderate and centrist course.
Daley laments that many Democrats won seats in traditional Republican strongholds because they are moderates, or Blue Dogs as they are called, and that they risk losing because they have had to support the more radical elements of the party in Congress. Anyone with a little political sense knows that Pelosi will try to protect the moderates by allowing them to vote against unpopular legislation as long as she has the votes for it to pass. However, when push comes to shove and she needs the votes she expects them to vote lockstep with the party.
This sets up problems and shows why there is no such thing as a true Blue Dog. When it gets down to brass tacks the so called Blue Dogs vote party over conscience. It might take a good bribe but it always happens. It is very unlikely that the citizens in the traditional Republican strongholds who are now represented by Democrats want the health care bill, cap and trade or the stimulus but in many cases they have representatives who support those items.
Daley’s solution is for the Democrats to put up a moderate and centrist front but this is all smoke and mirrors. How many people believe that any of these people who get reelected acting as moderates will actually be moderate when votes are needed and the leadership is applying pressure? Barack Obama ran as a person who would be transparent, ethical, moderate and bipartisan. In essence, he appeared to be rather moderate. This fooled a lot of people who failed to pay attention to his radical past. Now we are seeing him as the far left radical, Chicago politician that some of us saw despite the whole hope and change mantra.
If the left moves to the center and works as moderates many of them might be reelected by those with short memories but make no mistake, they will not remain moderate after they are elected. You folks in conservative America need to look at the Democrats representing you and see if they truly stayed moderate after they won or if they fell in line behind the radical liberal agenda. Don’t be fooled by those who vote for something and then against it when the votes are secured. Don’t be fooled by those who are allowed to vote a certain way under the cover provided by Pelosi. You need to actually look at them and what they are doing. If they voted for the things you do not want and did so under pressure then they are playing a game and it is not likely they will change should they win reelection.
When it comes down to it the so called Blue Dogs vote party over constituent and party over country so keep this in mind should they run around begging for your vote and your money while telling you how they had your best interests at heart.
Daley wants the Democrats to put on a ruse in order to avoid a real problem in the next election. His plea for Obama to take on a centrist agenda has nothing to do with really being centrist or running the country as a centrist. It is a political ploy designed to keep Democrats in power so that once the election is over they can continue the radical agenda set forth by Obama, Pelosi, and Reid.
Vote them all out and put people in who will be concerned with your interests and not the interests of the party.
And if that person turns out to be bad replace him as well.
We The People own this country and it is time we started acting like it.
