Using Loretta Lynch to say the Mateen transcript would be redacted.

Embarrassing. 

The outrage was predictable. The full transcript was released. Why was Lynch used like that? She was on all the Sunday shows, in the manner of Susan Rice. So avoidable!

"It makes you wonder: Who at the White House feels compelled to send women of color out to humiliate themselves on national TV?"

Jarrett, that's who.

"Why was Lynch used like that?"

The man is without honor.

Who will remember that the whole thing is a nothing event in the scheme of things. It just happens to be entertaining enough to hold the TV narrative for a few days, where auto crashes are not.

It's sort of a Princess Di, with war to keep the men interested.

Your post seemed modeled after a Trumpish tweet. Amusing!

"Why was Lynch used like that? She was on all the Sunday shows, in the manner of Susan Rice. So avoidable!" 1. Worth a shot. Progs and MSM might have been able to hold the anti-gun anti-Christian line. 2. The Rice lie pretty much worked the first time. Deflected responsibility from O just enough during campaign season, tied the Republicans in knots, and as a result gave Progs a handy anti-GOP narrative 3. Rice and Lynch are willing tools.

O/T, but WTH?:
"The Forward today is calling attention to the continuing anti-Semitic harassment on social media (mainly Twitter) of Jewish journalists (or those perceived to be Jewish). The anti-Semitic messages have often come in response to journalists' coverage of Donald Trump's campaign. A June 7 Washington Post piece has examples. The Forward says:
Online bullying is a non-partisan activity — both the far left and the far right are quite good at it — but the virulent anti-Semitism many journalists experience today comes from what is known as the “alt-right,” shadowy white supremacists who mainly hide behind the anonymity of Twitter to traffic in horrible Holocaust imagery and directly threaten Jews.
Many of these threats draw on connections with Trump’s presidential campaign, using Trump’s image and targeting his critics, including several of our regular writers. Even if you don’t believe that the presumed Republican standard bearer has stoked this cyber-hate (which is a generous assumption), you have to admit that he appears to have done nothing to minimize or condemn it.
As a symbolic protest, The Forward says it will refuse for 24 hours (starting tomorrow) to publish anything mentioning Trump's name or his campaign."

Loretta Lynch can take the heat. She is, after all, a coal miner's daughter.

The assumption is that Obama was being clever and had some strategy. He isn't and doesn't beyond the literal obvious--keep the focus on guns. Obama likely thinks his approach worked.

David Begley said...

Lynch was used because she is a girl. A black girl. Obama used her.

If you want 15 minutes of fame, call 911.

If you want my opinion, any information collected by 911 should be non-public information. Much the same as HIPAA rules at hospitals.

Insane people will abuse 911 to amplify their savage massacres.

I don't care to know, I don't think 99% of Americans care to know. It also victimizes innocent callers as well.

When I call 911, I ask for an officer or medic at my location. They don't need to know anything else - click! The media are not your friends.

Holder never would have done it. A pardon for Marc Rich, however, is another thing. Money in that.

Bill, Republic of Texas said...

O/T but WTF!!

Hillary support went to Las Vegas to kill Trump. He practiced shooting at a range, drove to LV went to where Trump was speaking and tried to kill him.

When will the Libs finally admit their violent rhetoric and constant demonizing of the man has created a real atmosphere of hate.

It's time to ban the H symbol. It's time the media refuses to cover the hate speech of democrats and time for Hillary to stand up and condemn her supporters and to stop stoking the fire of hate.

Obama is playing 4 dimension chess.

A void able.

He wants you to become so inspired by his Lightworkingness that you come to understand, past your racist ways, that even a void is able to Obama.

Leading from behind has created or saved millions of post-voids Bush birthed eugenically with Margaret Sanger and Ethel Rosenberg.

The Cracker Ethnocentrist said...

Boo-frickity. The clownishness of the Left is boundless. If not for Free Stuff, the Democrats would never win an election.

eric said...

This was so stupid it hurts.

It reminds me of just how dumb Obama is. He's done so many dumb things during his Presidency that the media have been working overtime to cover it up for him.

Tomorrow we'll learn that he's the bestest President ever and they'll run news stories telling us just how bitchen he is. And they'll leave this huge unforced error right off the pages.

This way, most people will forget just what an idiot we elected for President.

In another 2 hours, it will be time for, "At this point, what difference does it make?"

Original Mike said...

Reports are they are still not releasing every thing he said.

MayBee said...

This was so dumb I almost hope it was a misdirection.

MayBee said...

Let me preface this by saying any shots that happened that night are completely his fault. But it is odd they are still saying they don't know how many people were killed by the police, because the autopsies are all completed.

gadfly said...

General Loretta Lynch had a choice to make - and she chose embarrassment; that is, if you really think that a veteran liar has the foggiest idea of what "embarrassment" even means. Remember that she just lied through her teeth to the Senate Committee that approved her appointment.

Comanche Voter said...

Once again Obozo and his team of clowns prove they are not the sharpest tools in the shed.

Paul said...

"So avoidable"????? You really think Obama cares about Lynch?

Hahahaha... no, he is in la-la land on reality shows now. He don't care. Not one iota does he care.

pellehDin said...

Simple answer. In Islam, the woman exists only to serve the man.

Rick Lockridge said...

This was a joint FBI-DOJ release, and since the redactions were political (and thus arguably important to the DOJ but of little utility for the FBI), how about this as a scenario:
1. Lynch makes exec decision to issue transcript with redactions (after getting sign-off from Jarrett, allowing Obama to plausibly deny involvement);
2. After outrage surfaces (except where it should have: CNN, WaPo, NYT -- all perfectly untroubled, to their disgrace), FBI, having had a particularly bad last 8 days, decides it no longer needs this additional aggravation... and mutinous rumblings begin. Lynch backs down and the result is a humiliating reversal. If Obama himself had ordered this, I don't think there would have been a reversal, because it's not like him to admit a mistake. He would have doubled down.
I'm much more outraged at the MSM's complaisance than I am at Lynch's PC gutlessness. You expect the latter.

It is obvious Obama is a misogynist prick.

bagoh20 said...

No, no, no! It's not Obama's fault, it's not Lynch's fault, it's not anybody else's fault. You vote, I vote. We as a group are idiots. Just face it. Aren't you much better off knowing you're an idiot than not? Now what are you gonna do about it, stupid? That's what I thought.

holdfast said...

Stay Voltage, again.

We spent a news cycle talking about Lynch and reactions, not about Radical Islam and Obama's failed anti-ISIS policies.

Moby alert. The intention here is to minimize the Obama administration’s embarrassment caused by its ridiculous censorship by offering a moral justification for the censorship.

Actually, I would agree on most of the opinion offered above in ordinary circumstances, you know, like on an average Chicago weekend … but not in terrorist situations and definitely not in this latest jihadi atrocity where the facts of the nature of this national security threat is of paramount importance.

The American public needs to know exactly what he said on the night of the carnage.

They need to know that this wasn’t a shooting directed at gays except in the sense that gay hatred is always present in Muslim societies. It’s a prominent characteristic of the culture itself. I read that he considered Disneyland for the big event but it was apparently not as soft a target as a gay nightclub with a lone security guard, probably sporting a sidearm and probably the first victim. After that, nothing to worry about but a bunch of understandably panicky drunks.

If the reports are true that he frequented the club more than he needed in order to do what he did and that he used gay hook-up apps then it wouldn’t surprise me if he was a repressed homosexual. I can easily imagine the conflict that might have been created between his repressed sexual attraction towards men and his culture’s extreme attitude towards gayness.

General Loretta Lynch had a choice to make - and she chose embarrassment; that is, if you really think that a veteran liar has the foggiest idea of what "embarrassment" even means.

Maybe. But didn’t she also choose survival? Survival at the cost of embarrassment? What would be her political future as a Democrat if she had refused and resigned? Because if Lynch had refused I believe she would have also HAD to have offered her resignation in the same breath. And I think Obama would have accepted it.

As for Susan Rice, her embarrassment may have cost her an appointment as Secretary of State to replace Hillary, but she will probably continue to have a bright political future in the Democrat party. So will Lynch, especially now that she has demonstrated her loyalty.

And Lynch’s(and Obama’s) embarrassment will be minimized by the MSM in various ways, perhaps by conflating run-of-the-mill 911 calls with an Islamic terrorist’s declarations of religious motivation – who knows?

From the article: "It makes you wonder: Who at the White House feels compelled to send women of color out to humiliate themselves on national TV?"

No mystery to me. Another woman of color with the initials VJ. Or a man know as B.O.

Lynch allowed herself to be used this way. Just how is she going to handle the pressure of a Clinton indictment if she caves on this?

Her statements about looking into imprisoning climate-change deniers should have her sitting in the unemployment office, if not jail.

Obamamohammed is protecting Muslims' reputation. Mateen has blown their cover story that they are of a higher morality than trash people that serve as their sacrificial victims...which is only right.

Sharia means lie all the time, because allah likes that.

This is bad news for Hillary should an air-tight FBI criminal referral come across Lynch's desk.

Fool me once, shame on you... fool me twice, shame on me.

Why were Lynch and Rice used like that? Hey, at least he didn't make them wear a veil.

Like John McCain's attack on Obama last week--how could they be so unprepared to deal with so predictable a response?

MayBee said...

It isn't just women of color. He sent Janet Napolitano out to say "the system worked" when the underwear bomber was allowed on a plane even though his father had reported him.

Michael K said...

We spent a news cycle talking about Lynch and reactions, not about Radical Islam and Obama's failed anti-ISIS policies.

And "Allah" was changed to "God" in the supposed "complete" transcript. They did manage to slip that one through.

Mike Sylwester said...

Who at the White House feels compelled to send women of color out to humiliate themselves on national TV?

Sometimes those two colored women have to do a public "shucking and jiving" skit to earn their keep.

damikesc said...

Obama hates dark-skinned women, obviously.

I don't feel bad for her. She knew she was being used. She was OK with it. Women can make their own bad decisions.

Hillary support went to Las Vegas to kill Trump. He practiced shooting at a range, drove to LV went to where Trump was speaking and tried to kill him.

That that is not major news is a powerful condemnation of our media and makes me wonder why the press warrants any level of deference or protections.

retail lawyer said...

It signals that Hillary won't be indicted. It eliminates hope that Lynch is anything other than a tool.

Michael K said...

"It eliminates hope that Lynch is anything other than a tool."

I agree. The last hope that she might have some sense of shame is gone.
