Selective Transparency For DOJ

Voter registration booth at sight where Brown died.

“Transparency” has lost its meaning. At least where the government and the media is concerned. When there’s a great racial narrative going, like a White cop (or a “White Hispanic” community watch dude) shooting a Black kid, that’s all you need to pick that scab, again. Instant ratings for the media, and another opportunity to stir up racial unrest. With everything else going wrong in the administration, this is a distraction that was made to order.

(Update:8/18/2014, see voter registration booth where Michael Brown was killed)

So we now find out that the Executive Branch (DOJ) didn’t want the convenience store robbery video released. And the media complied. Even though they knew a video existed, there was no reporting about it. That is, until the police released it themselves.

What’s so bad about transparency? All we think we know about the Michael Brown shooting is that the cop wasn’t aware of the robbery that Brown committed fifteen minutes earlier. And, that Brown knew what he did fifteen minutes before coming in contact with the cop. Gee Mr. Media, any chance that something other than a White cop shooting a “gentle giant” may have happened?

Carrying a political agenda is one thing, but it becomes dangerous (in so many ways) when it is coupled with the “news” media. And, reason enough to be skeptical about anything that comes out of the so-called mainstream media.

Where’s The “Coalition of the Willing?”

Why is there no “coalition of the willing” to deal with ISIS and terrorism this time?

I’ll tell you why.

  1. President Obama hasn’t the stomach for it.
  2. No country in the world trusts Obama to do the right thing.
  3. No country in the world will put their troops under the direction of a Commander-in-Chief who works on a timetable instead of results. A commander who prefers to end wars than to win them. Nor one who gives dates for withdraw before the job is done. And who could blame them?
  4. Only a fool would partner with the one person most responsible for empowering ISIS and trust that he knows how to fix it.

Bottom line, Obama broke it. It’s his problem to fix.
