The #VRWC Report: Purple People Beater Schadenfreude edition

Any day where public employee unionistas get whacked is a good day for America. And yesterday’s SCOTUS ruling in Harris v. Quinn means the Purple People Beaters will have to refund millions in ill-gotten union dues. Huzzah!

Here’s another good guy with a gun story. You know how it turns out.

Ignorance of the law is no excuse, unless you’re Lois Lerner. Then, “oopsie” is a perfectly fine explanation. Or so her attorney would have us believe.

Life in Obama’s military: Gay Pride one month, Sharia Law the next. Unsurprisingly, not everyone is OK with that.

Is water a ‘right’ in Detroit? The U.N. thinks so but here’s why they are wrong.

Is Barack Obama the OJ Simpson of the Oval Office. Or, just another dog. Why not both?

A spotlight review of Hillary Clinton’s new book: All talk, no action.

And last but not least, a travelogue along Route 66.

How convenient, White House announces capture of Benghazi attack suspect

Look, Squirrel!

A suspected terrorist linked to the 2012 Benghazi terror attack that killed four Americans has been captured inside Libya by U.S. forces and currently is en route to the United States, Fox News has learned.

Sources told Fox News that the suspect, Ansar al-Sharia commander Ahmed Abu Khattala, was captured Sunday during a joint U.S. military and law enforcement operation, and will face prosecution in the United States.

President Obama signed off on the mission on Friday night, Fox News is told. Khattala was captured south of Benghazi by U.S. special operators and is on his way to the U.S. aboard a Navy ship.

Also on Friday night, the IRS claimed it “lost” emails from 6 more key officials involved in the Lois Lerner scandal.

Purely coincidentally, I’m sure.

And Obama’s disastrous withdrawal from Iraq has also been in the news recently, much to the chagrin of Hillary Clinton’s publicist.

Then there’s the ongoing VA scandal which shows no signs of dissipating any time soon.

So, color me cynical, but it sure seems like a good time to divert our attention. And trot out what his sycophantic media will call a nice finish to the Benghazi issue and a “win” for their president.

Because, really, he’s never tried that tactic before, right?

 

Lois Lerner will plead the Fifth before Congress, who is she protecting?

Lois Lerner has lawyered up, and plans to plead the  Fifth.

Lois Lerner, one of the IRS officials at the center of the scandal involving the targeting of conservative groups, is going to plead the fifth rather than answer to Congress for the actions of the unit she oversaw. It’s one thing to lie to the American people, even if it gets one a bushel full of Pinocchios, but quite another to lie under oath.

The thing is though, what is she really afraid of? Her boss said no crime was committed. White House flunky Dan Pfeiffer went on TV this past weekend and tried to say the same thing.

So what if Chris puts his Speculation Hat on?

Lerner didn’t dream up this fiasco by herself. Bureaucrats don’t operate that way. Somebody had her back. Someone said they’d “take care” of any problems that cropped up. So by pleading the Fifth, Lois Lerner is protecting “someone.”

Maybe that “someone” isn’t Barack Obama. But I’ll bet it’s a person close to him. A political advisor. Say, David Plouffe? Or, much more likely, Valerie Jarrett.

Val hasn’t given the Journolist Jokers the time of day for more than a year. But now she summons them to the West Wing? My guess is, they’re not there for tea. Talking points, for sure. Spin, definitely. Marching orders, you betcha.

You watch. In the next day or so one of those bozos will “break” an important memo or other document which lays all the blame for the Tea Party harassment directly at Lerner’s feet. It’ll completely absolve Dear Leader and his White House sycophants while planting her firmly under the bus.

And then, maybe a year from now, when everyone’s forgotten about the IRS and Tea Parties, Lerner’s husband’s law firm will land a nice big fat retainer from one of George Soros’s dummy corporations. The work to be performed will be somewhat nebulous, but the payout will be in the high seven figures.

Because that’s how Valerie Jarrett protects her president.
