What we and others have been tweeting

Ooo boy... Crazy, crazy week. Wednesday, 3 whistleblowers stepped forward and in sworn testimony to Congress, blew the lid off the official White House version of events of what transpired in Benghazi, Libya.

Then on Friday morning, the IRS stepped forward and admitted to harrassing conservative and tea party groups. This was followed by a off-the-record, err... "deep background" closed doors White House press briefing.

To summarize our overall reaction to this week:

By the time it takes people how to figure out how to spell her name correctly, Sharyl Attkisson may be out of a job at CBS News. You see, Ms. Attkisson has been one of the only people in the main stream media to do the heavy lifting on subjects like Fast and Furious and, more recently, Benghazi. Word search her name at the upper left corner of this page and you will see the various times we've linked to her articles and praised her 4th estate vigilance.

The 4th estate that 40 years ago brought down a Presidency, now shies away from any and all contact with hard-hitting investigative journalism where it concerns a fan-boy presidency.

Oh, and you'd be pleased to know the head of CBS News has a brother who is a high-level advisor within the Obama administration.

And media attempts to circle the wagons, aren't going so smoothly:

So, if the media can't seem to properly circle the wagons, then maybe the White House can help. In the wake Friday morning's ABC News bomshell report that the White House and State Department heavily edited and revised the now-discredited CIA talking points about the attack on Benghazi, an off-the-record "deep background" invite-only press briefing was held.

In the midst of a blooming scandal, we cannot imagine worse optics than an off-the-record "deep background" invite-only press briefing.

Consider our minds blown.

Yep. And the legacy media continues to cover themselves in glory.

But, hey, we think we've got it figured out.

And with respect to whistleblower testimony to Congress on Wednesday, predictably the long knives came out for the most prominent of them, Gregory Hicks, the State Department’s former deputy chief of mission in Libya.

Former Marine with 22 years of decorated service to our country in the diplomatic corps and an uncited source claims he was the "worst manager ever" as proof of lack of credibility.

That's the best they can do?

Now as Hicks' testimony blew holes in the administration's account of things, let's all remember that the only person in custody as a result of this catastrophe is being held right here in the good ol' US of A. That's right. It's crappy Youtube video guy who was originally claimed by the administration to be responsible for the spontaneous demonstration terrorist attack on the Benghazi consulate.

If lefties can make heroes out of domestic terrorists like Bill Ayers, can't we, in the name of free speech, make a cause celebre' out of Nakoula?

Free speech? What's that have to do with Benghazi? Let's take scroll down memory lane shall we and re-look at all the wonderful things being said by our betters with respect to censorship and suitable punsishment for Nakoula

On a lighter note:

And with respect to this IRS harrassment...

And a very good question that shouldn't be a rhetorical one:

We doubt anyone is going to be held responsible for this.

And to wrap things up:

OK, gang. That's it. Have a great weekend and a tremendous Mother's Day.
