Sorry about playing hooky last Monday, good people – was more than a little under the weather. Also, I had to wash my hair, and didn’t have a thing to wear.
Also, this edition of “Obsession” is going to be a “The Darnold”-free zone, because – feet of clay.
Let’s start with O’Keefe does it again!

Conservative Activist James O’Keefe To Release CNN Tapes
AP ^ | 02/23/17
Posted on 2/23/2017, 7:37:05 AM by Enlightened1
NEW YORK (AP) — Conservative activist James O’Keefe has announced plans to release recordings Thursday morning that he says were made secretly inside CNN.
O’Keefe tells the network in an interview that the media is a “huge target” of his and he’s targeting CNN specifically because it “has a very important role as an arbiter of news.”
So – it’s time for the big reveal that will bring the Commie News Network (wait, aren’t commies supposed to be the good guys now?) to its KNEES!!

Either a WHOLE LOT of people are trying to get on, or the Deep State has launched a cyberattack.

Wow. That’s enough for the down payment on a used car!
Not too earthshaking. It’s from 2009 I think. We’ll have to see what the rest of it shows.

Did I also hear that the tapes are from 2009? Won’t have much bearing on Trump if that’s the case.

Nobody you have ever heard of from 2009, this might be one of his overhypes

Me thinks O’Keefe has over-promised and under-delivered again.

Seems like weak sauce. I bet Hannity is POd that Keefe overhyped it on his show.

Oh, if you think this is not-so-awesome sauce, just wait until you see what El Rushbo has in store for you – if you dare to read more…..

Let’s say there are 200 hours. Let’s say there are 50 hours since January 2016. Put 10 people on it for one day and find out if there isn’t something a little more impacting than what he played in his intro.My guess is that every minute of this material has been listened to by someone, and unfortunately it seems a dud. Should have been put out without the hype, it is just crying wolf…

“Well, you’ve only been on FR since last September [not even 6 months], so we’ll take your “opinion” under advisement.”
Please “advise” me when you locate the devastating portion of the 8 year old tapes.

And they’re NINE years old, not eight. So there.

Folks, I watched O’Keefe’s video at cnnleaks.com
None of the CNN audio in his video was significant. He over-hyped. Just telling it like it is. If something big comes out of the audio, I’ll be the FIRST to say I was wrong.
His $10,000 bounty is a red-herring. If he had great audio exposing CNN, he wouldn’t need to offer a bounty. He would already have it.

And now – the post of the thread!
In response to “txhurl” (I can only assume that he lives in Texas and has stomach issues) :
Agreed, this was a good gift dropped in our laps. As they say, there’s got to be a pony in here somewhere.

This is, of course, an old joke that refers to expecting a nice gift, and getting a pile of manure instead.
Time for one more….
Rush on amnesty for DREAMers: “Nobody’s going to win anything by deporting a bunch of kids” hotair.com ^ | 2/22/17 | Allahpundit Posted on 2/22/2017, 8:33:23 PM by ColdOne
“Small price to pay to get the problem under control,” he says of amnesty for hundreds of thousands of young illegals, via the Daily Rushbo. Am I awake?
I kid. This shouldn’t be shocking — if you’re a pragmatist, not a polemicist. Point one: Trump has been hinting at amnestizing DREAMers for months. Usually that takes the form of gooey pronouncements about having a big heart and how “great people that are here that have done a good job … should be far less worried” about deportation than criminals. Lately, though, the White House has showed its hand more clearly by declining to suspend Obama’s DACA program for DREAMers as part of its executive overhaul of immigration policy. All Rush is doing here is getting in line with a Republican president he already spends much of his time defending.
Point two: An immigration deal with Democrats that would trade serious enforcement upgrades for amnesty for DREAMers does make a lot of sense. If Trump needs to horse-trade with Democrats to get 60 votes in the Senate for more Border Patrol, more sophisticated means of tracking immigrants internally, and so forth, legalization for America’s most sympathetic class of illegals is an obvious possible concession, especially since Obama’s already granted them…

Soooo Rush! If someone breaks into your home and steals your “stuff” and they give your “stuff” to their kids, you are ok with their kids keeping your “stuff” once the parents gets caught????

He was ever right about anything??
Regarding this epic decades long invasion, El Rushbo was no where to be found during the late 80s 90s or into the 2000s. But he sure yapped a lot about feminazis and golf.

Well, that’s enough Freeper disappointment for this go-around.
And I didn’t even touch on the Freeperati’s shocked comments on The Darnold’s attempts to play dictator running aground on all those nasty checks and balances.
I do have to say that Don Cheeto is reminding me more and more every day of General Dreedle from Catch-22, with Jared Kuschner playing the part of Colonel Moodus:
General Dreedle: Who is this man?
Colonel Cathcart: Major Danby, Sir.
Lt. Col. Korn: Danby… D-A-N-B-Y…
General Dreedle: Take him out and shoot him.
Colonel Cathcart: Sir?
General Dreedle: I said take him out and shoot him… can’t you hear?
Colonel Cathcart: Take Major Danby out and shoot him…
As soon as Major Danby began to cry, Colonel Moodus, who had been vacillating wretchedly on the sidelines, could restrain himself no longer and stepped out diffidently toward General Dreedle with a sickly air of self-sacrifice. ‘I think you’d better wait a minute, Dad,’ he suggested hesitantly. ‘I don’t think you can shoot him.’
General Dreedle was infuriated by his intervention. ‘Who the hell says I can’t?’ he thundered pugnaciously in a voice loud enough to rattle the whole building. Colonel Moodus, his face flushing with embarrassment, bent close to whisper into his ear. ‘Why the hell can’t I?’ General Dreedle bellowed. Colonel Moodus whispered some more.
‘You mean I can’t shoot anyone I want to?’ General Dreedle demanded with uncompromising indignation. He pricked up his ears with interest as Colonel Moodus continued whispering. ‘Is that a fact?’ he inquired…
See you good people next Monday.
