Bob Woodward: A "Very Senior" White House Staffer Threatened, "You're Going to Regret Challenging Us" on Our Sequester Narrative

Hm.

Wonderful.

Woodward, of course, claims Obama himself must not know about this and that he'd be scandalized if he knew his aides were pursuing a Do Not Dare Question Us strategy with reporters.

Because we all know Obama is so at ease when he's challenged.

Update: A "very senior" White House staffer, it's now said.

Video: At The Right Scoop.

More: Sexton traces this to the dispute over who came up with the sequester -- first the White House was intent on claiming Republicans proposed it, but then, when Woodward pointed out it had come straight from the White House, suddenly the media began claiming, in unison, it just didn't matter who'd come up with it.

Well the White House sure seems to think it matters.

OT:

Days before the March 1 deadline, Senate Republicans are circulating a draft bill that would cancel $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts and instead turn over authority to President Barack Obama to achieve the same level of savings under a plan to be filed by March 8.

So exactly why Teh Fcuk do we even need a minority party in the senate? Or a Senate at all?

And we've got Jay Carney saying Obama didn't know that ICE was going to release all those illegal aliens back into the population. And he didn't know what was going on in Benghazi, because no one called him after the initial briefing to update him. And he had absolutely nothing to do with Fast and Furious; that was entirely the DOJ, and was actually started under Bush even though it wasn't but who cares about facts amiright?

JEF knew nothing about the threat, like he knew nothing about letting prisoners out on the streets. JEF knew nothing about Benghaze. The bastard never knows anything. What good is he?

The underlings respond, and act in ways they think will please the Boss. King Putt goes on record telling us all what a horrible catastrophe Sequestration will be to this country, and magically, some of his underlings do their part to ensure the devastation occurs on schedule.

If it happens once....that's ok, you root out the bad weed, and kick him or her to the curb. But this would not be the first time people under The Taupe Dope have accepted his public partisan rhetoric as marching orders. As always, follow the trail of shit back to it's source, which is Obama. The man could try to act Presidential, but he's too wrapped up in admiring his awesomeness in the mirror to care. He's scoring points against Conservatives, the media adore him, and his cud chewing wife, (which I'm sure is racist), and the well being of this country is not a concern to him.

Yes, yes, words fail, as they have for so long.

But as my telepathic skills have atrophied, here's a few inadequate words.

A Third World country. That's what we have become, in the civic arena, specifically at the national level. Stunning.

Imagine ..... this .... during ..... Dubya's presidency. Go ahead. Try to imagine 1) it happening, or anyone above the dumbest son-of-an-old-friend political appointee (used to be found mostly in Commerce, during 41's days, was called "Bush Gardens" or "the dumping ground" - even thinking about saying it 2) the reaction. You wouldn't be able to find the sports scores, weather, or traffic in any "news" medium, due to the 1,000% breathless hysterical "coverage" of this thuggish, un-American, Third World occurrence.

Oh - and "surely Comrade Stalin would be outraged if only he knew what was being done in his name!"

ANYTHING POSITIVE: Obama was RIGHT THERE, pushing it along and making sure it got done.


ANYTHING NEGATIVE: Obama had NO IDEA it was happening. None. In fact he was probably asleep at the time. Unless sleeping would have been equally bad, in which case he WASN'T sleeping, but was probably up at his desk in the Oval Office, squinting at columns of numbers in a SQL datasheet and doing mental calculus to figure out the exact location of North Korea's next missile launch. Because he's JUST. THAT. DEDICATED.

"This is how a good democratic President should act, Barack," he says. "You're supposed to usher in a Utopian age, but your... people keep doing things wrong. I know it's not you, but you should get them in order or people will start to think it IS you. Don't disappoint me. "


But he falsely believes that Barack gives a crap what he says.

I can't wait for them to round us conservatives up and put us in the FEMA camps we'll end up with most of the MSM in there and they'll all be stunned... if only Obama knew he'd put a stop to this.

They'll tear him down, call him senile, and dismiss his opinions as "anachronistic holdovers from an earlier era." They'll give him a bit of leeway, because he IS Woodward. But if he pushes too much more they'll bring the hammer down.

what was naive about FDR's foreign policy


Posted by: JDP


All three leaders were trying to establish an agenda for governing
post-war Germany. Churchill's attitude towards the Soviet Union differed
vastly from that of Roosevelt, with the former believing Stalin to be a
"devil"-like tyrant leading a vile system.[1] In 1942, U.S. Ambassador to the Soviet Union William Christian Bullitt, Jr.'s
thesis prophesied the "flow of the Red amoeba into Europe". Roosevelt
responded to Bullitt, Jr., with a statement summarizing his rationale
for wartime relations with Stalin:[2]

I just have a hunch that Stalin is not that kind of
a man.... and I think that if I give him everything I possibly can and
ask for nothing from him in return, noblesse oblige, he won't try to
annex anything and will work with me for a world of democracy and peace.[2]
—Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1943

234 FDR-Executive Order 9066, dated February 19, 1942, gave the military broad
powers to ban any citizen from a fifty- to sixty-mile-wide coastal area
stretching from Washington state to California and extending inland into
southern Arizona. The order also authorized transporting these citizens
to assembly centers hastily set up and governed by the military in
California, Arizona, Washington state, and Oregon. Although it is not
well known, the same executive order (and other war-time orders and
restrictions) were also applied to smaller numbers of residents of the
United States who were of Italian or German descent. For example, 3,200
resident aliens of Italian background were arrested and more than 300 of
them were interned. About 11,000 German residents—including some
naturalized citizens—were arrested and more than 5000 were interned. Yet
while these individuals (and others from those groups) suffered
grievous violations of their civil liberties, the war-time measures
applied to Japanese Americans were worse and more sweeping, uprooting
entire communities and targeting citizens as well as resident aliens.

Yet while these individuals (and others from those groups) suffered grievous violations of their civil liberties, the war-time measures applied to Japanese Americans were worse and more sweeping, uprooting entire communities and targeting citizens as well as resident aliens.


And were completely sensible. Japanese immigration to CA included a lot of people who came just to work, and still considered themselvesJapanese. They even sent their kids back to Japan for education (as some Japanese do to this day in Hawaii).

Furthermore, some Japanese had helped provide information to the IJN re Pearl Harbor and such. Being a little dodgy about having them around naval bases was just prudence.

And as for civil liberties, they can be a luxury in wartime. Recall that Lincoln closed several opposition newspapers, and suspended the writ of habeas corpus.

(c) Of course, this is the reason it is so hard to cut. everyone in gov. works for gov. and no one can imagine the downside to free markets. But the upside is only possible because of the downside, so maybe the salary you earn factors in the risk. or maybe you are overlooking all the risk, and hard times, that everyone in the country is facing.

what was the more immediate threat at the time? also the will wasn't there on a lot of _the right_ as well prior to Pearl Harbor, because of World War I. the public didn't want to get "entangled" in something again.

bottom line is you are either arguing we should have somehow taken on Germany and the USSR as once (how this makes sense after Hitler attacked the USSR i dunno,) or you're saying that a Third Reich exterminating the entire Jewish population/reducing other "inferiors" to slavery was preferable to a USSR we were able to contain and eventually defeat.

471 The stock market rising is just an indicator that they're investing their
money ( that they had elsewhere) in stocks. Doesn't mean good things, doesn't mean bad things.

The stock market diving on Oct '29 as the beginning of the depression is a myth. There were other problems.

Now when they start selling is the time to be a little more leery as it means they're buying something else to keep their money safe and productive (sometimes neither).

You can't predict the economy by watching a game of texas hold 'em.

The stock market usually is not anticipatory. They're not fucking seers over there. They may see trends but they can't see the future. (or futures either)

I wonder exactly how many puppeteers he has pulling his strings? I don't think we'll ever know unless one of them breaks up with TFG.

If anything happens to Woodward, it has to look like a natural death. He's been all over today telling the story. I wish he would have said who told him not to. Why does he care at this point? he's already pissed them off.

Willow-ette, Canada also interred citizens in WWII. But that never fits the narrative on how evil the US is.

Oh, that was the US government. Nothing to do with the sainted FDR. /liberal

(Btw, the UK did the same thing, IIRC, with Germans who'd become naturalized British subjects.)

wartime. Recall that Lincoln closed several opposition newspapers, and
suspended the writ of habeas corpus.

Another factor in the Japanese internments that tends to get glossed over, is that even Japanese with unquestioned loyalty to their adopted country might fall victim to blackmail by the Imperial Japanese Secret Service, which body kept records of foreign-living Japanese and their relatives still in the home islands.

Further, a population of ethnic Japanese near tidewater could provide a hiding place for spies landed by submarines. Possibly not for a long time, but long enough for them to accomplish their missions, perhaps.

Finally, if the Japanese had been able to carry out a massive sneak attack or sabotage, the local ethnic Japanese population might have fallen victim to reprisal attacks, or be caught up in the response to the initial assault.

The real sin of the Japanese internment was not that it was done at all, but that it was done in such a way that cronies of the government profited handsomely from the sale of confiscated Japanese property; at least that is how it went down here in Canada.

483 The Soviets sustained a lot of casualties because they were incompetent, and didn't care about human life.

Marshal Zhukov was a ruthless commander but I don't think anyone could ever claim he was incompetent. The Stalingrad encirclement was one of the most masterful military maneuvers ever accomplished. The only time Zhukov's plans went awry was when Stalin interfered.

GREAT point.

I've defended FDR's decision, which I think was prudent, given the circumstances.

I lived in Europe for many years, and if the U.S. had gone to war with the country of my residence, that country would've been extremely well-advised to intern my ass.

Marshal Zhukov ~ Slavic version of U.S. Grant. Grind 'em down, slugging toe to toe, trading casualty for casualty, when you've got superior manpower. Brutal, but rational. And effective.

487 How amazing is it, that we have a (supposedly) well-respected journalist, who helped bring down a previous POTUS, come out and quote a threat from the current POTUS? This really is stunning. I am not shocked, but it is shocking he revealed it, and when.

Breitbart had a heart attack because he had a heart attack, God rest his soul. Woodward's pale because he's an old white guy who's held an office job all his life. Leave it be.

Anyone else find it hilarious and ironic that Bob Woodward might find himself destroyed by a White House of his own creation?

The irony. It burns.

492 My speculation -

A: Woodward has been in Washington too long and he knows Obama either ordered it or at least knew it would be done.

B: Woodward just gave the administration an out by letting themunder-bus some flunky.

493 Valerie Jarrett is apparently coming unglued.Woodward essentially called her out as the VERY senior presidential "aide"(read 'controller') of the president who threatened him.It's good for the country that the thuggery is becoming more public so the not-so-bright supporters of this administration can see what we have here.It might not work out so well for Woodward,however.
