"Punishing enemies and rewarding friends -- politics Chicago style -- seems to be the unifying principle that helps explain the Obamacare waivers, the NLRB action against Boeing and the IRS' gift-tax assault on 501(c)(4) donors.
"They look like examples of crony capitalism, bailout favoritism and gangster government.
"One thing they don't look like is the rule of law."
If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, it must be a duck.
Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. was elected President with the support and protection of the liberal media establishment led by The New York Times.
Character should count, but Obama got a pass.
He should have been exposed as a liar and his radical ties should have become general knowledge before Election Day 2008.
Then Obamacare would not have been enacted and a President of the United States would not have embarrassingly toasted the Queen when the British national anthem was playing.
ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief became a confidential New York Times source on ACORN, but when she was working on an expose that might have been a "game changer" in the 2008 presidential election, There Times spiked the story.
The Times wishes it had been otherwise, but its reporter, Stephanie Strom, left MonCrief a voicemail that 'higher up" had told her to "stand down."
ABC and CNN could have reported the story, but they did not want to do it.
Fox News WAS willing. MonCrief was invited to come to New York appear on "Fox & Friends" on the Friday before Election Day and stay to appear over the weekend, but MonCrief, still "liberal," did not trust Fox News and declined.
After Obama won, however, Fox News was loathe to question Obama's integrity and instead focused on policy.
The thin-skinned Obama is not appreciative of even criticism on policy, but by joining the liberal media establishment in presuming Obama is a person of good character, Fox News has greatly enhanced Obama's chance of re-election.
The truth about Obama's ties to ACORN and his presidential campaign's relationship with Project Vote (a key part of the ACORN "family of organizations') is Obama's Achilles' heel.
MonCrief, an ex insider who worked for both ACORN and Project Vote, was the key to preventing Obama's election in 2008, but she was not ready to trust Fox News.
MonCrief is the key to stopping Obama's re-election and she is ready, willing and able to tell what she knows and America needs to know.
Fox News, if you need a reference, ask Fox contributor Michelle Malkin.
Readers, read Malkin's Culture of Corruption (preferably the paperback, which is updated).
Michael J. Gaynor has been practicing law in New York since 1973. A former partner at Fulton, Duncombe & Rowe and Gaynor & Bass, he is a solo practitioner admitted to practice in New York state and federal courts and an Association of the Bar of the City of New York member.
Gaynor graduated magna cum laude, with Honors in Social Science, from Hofstra University's New College, and received his J.D. degree from St. John's Law School, where he won the American Jurisprudence Award in Evidence and served as an editor of the Law Review and the St. Thomas More Institute for Legal Research. He wrote on the Pentagon Papers case for the Review and obscenity law for The Catholic Lawyer and edited the Law Review's commentary on significant developments in New York law.
The day after graduating, Gaynor joined the Fulton firm, where he focused on litigation and corporate law. In 1997 Gaynor and Emily Bass formed Gaynor & Bass and then conducted a general legal practice, emphasizing litigation, and represented corporations, individuals and a New York City labor union. Notably, Gaynor & Bass prevailed in the Second Circuit in a seminal copyright infringement case, Tasini v. New York Times, against newspaper and magazine publishers and Lexis-Nexis. The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed, 7 to 2, holding that the copyrights of freelance writers had been infringed when their work was put online without permission or compensation.
Gaynor currently contributes regularly to www.MichNews.com, www.RenewAmerica.com, www.WebCommentary.com, www.PostChronicle.com and www.therealitycheck.org and has contributed to many other websites. He has written extensively on political and religious issues, notably the Terry Schiavo case, the Duke "no rape" case, ACORN and canon law, and appeared as a guest on television and radio. He was acknowledged in Until Proven Innocent, by Stuart Taylor and KC Johnson, and Culture of Corruption, by Michelle Malkin. He appeared on "Your World With Cavuto" to promote an eBay boycott that he initiated and "The World Over With Raymond Arroyo" (EWTN) to discuss the legal implications of the Schiavo case. On October 22, 2008, Gaynor was the first to report that The New York Times had killed an Obama/ACORN expose on which a Times reporter had been working with ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief.
