Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren isn’t mincing words when it comes to the Justice Department’s investigation of colleague James Rosen, which now extends to Rosen’s movements, his personal email account and even his parents‘ phone records. In a no-nonsense blog post today, Van Susteren called the Obama administration’s ongoing harassment of Fox News “punishment” for covering the president’s scandals.

As an aside…remember when Benghazi broke and the State Department had that media wide conference call and “forgot” to include Fox News?  And then about a week later the CIA gave the media a briefing on Benghazi and guess which news organization was NOT invited.  You guessed right, Fox News Channel.  The Obama Administration “punished” us for our aggressive reporting on Benghazi by not inviting to the briefings that every other news organization got invited to.  So now read below… more punishment?

It’s worth revisiting the account of that conference call, held last October. The State Department later “apologized” for leaving Fox News off of the call, and Fox News’ Brit Hume at the time suggested a “strong scent of cover-up.”

    I don’t fear any man for: “MANS SUBJECTION TO DEATH IS NOTHING TO DERELICTION OF GODS WILL” – COREY SPOFFORD 5/21/2013

    • http://www.coreyspofford.com/ YEROCDROFFOPS

      The only time a dictatorship wins is when their subjects tell themselves “I better not say this/or that” and ‘self censor’. I know, as an American of 375 years I will never bow to the political wills of the current administration. A President who must reenforce the fact they are not a dictator and also re affirm the constitution is an impediment to their desires is contrary to the wishes of those who desire to be free. I’m sorry Mr. Obama but you sir, are subordinate to those who groomed you, I am sure today you understand how it feels to be subordinate, as the very people you placed to protect you are turning over… understand, a desire to grant the devil power is self-desrtuctive. If you have naught, you will know living a life without faith has lead you to the ends you meet and thus, self destruction is the ends. Goodby, for you’ve never admitted the truth to your soul. & the sad truth is, if you decide to admit such, you will meet the same truth as Kennedy… yet decades later the truth will prove you to be righteous.

      Decision is yours, Continue to lie and hide the truth that directs you or admit it… your fate amongst mortals will be the same… Your place upon souls can be immortal

    I’d assume they were tapped and just take that opportunity to let them know exactly what I think of them and their actions. Calling from a burner phone of course so I couldn’t be the target of their next audit or witch hunt. I suspect my language would not be PG-13.

    Or perhaps someone can call and read Van Susteren the Constitution or email it to her. That might be useful for these people to hear/see- obviously it is the only way they might become familiar with the document.

    Everything is being saved, from six months to Indefinitely…. When you become skeptical of speaking out you are under Tyranny… Please define which we live under.. As of now, your friends are ‘afraid to talk’ means the Executive is a Tyranny and needs to be dealt as such… clarify… for I will never be afraid to say so…

    • http://www.coreyspofford.com/ YEROCDROFFOPS

      Its simple huh? without the 1st amendment you cannot declare your ownership of weapons (2nd amendment) thus reasoning to reject any statist admiration to occupy your home (3rd amendment) and therefore forward… the bill of rights IS LISTED IN IMPORTANCE for a reason…. the feds are attack at the first in attempt to silence those who may speak out but are afraid to do so… never allow that to be the case as blood will need to shed to dictate that many are willing to shed to allow the rest to exist
      ….. this administration has over stepped… let them know.. you are in control… you can be 1 generation or 14th generation… the PEOPLE own this land and we shall direct the destiny of our souls…

    Greta, here’s what you & your friends need to learn. You need to know
    how to speak English backwards the way I do. My late mother, her sister, and I
    did, but it’s not the way most would, so it would be impossible for anyone to
    understand. Can you imagine the number of linguists the White House would have
    to contact in order to determine what language you were speaking!

    Me and a friend of mine have joked for years that the CIA would be bored out of their minds if they tapped us. It’s a long standing running joke between two women who yak a lot on the phone.

    You want to make the DOJ’s ears bleed? Get on the phone with a talkative friend in cahoots with you and talk endlessly about a bunch of life’s bs and force them to listen to it. Bonus points if they have to take notes. Give them the whole enchilada from your opinion about the last restaurant that you went to, how to get grass stains out of jeans, to what you think about boy bands. Grandma’s recipe for pineapple upside down cake, what you did in fourth grade for your science project….

    Do it for about three hours straight. They’ve earned it and deserve it. Give that same advice to everyone that is worried about this. It’s like an ugly game of chicken. If the listeners are men, they’ll blink first. No man could stand up to this.

    The Bill of Rights is not listed in order of importance. The numerical order is irrelevant and in no way implies any order of importance. Several founders said the 2nd Amendment was the most important only in that it guarantees your other rights. Demanding government leave your rights alone has no teeth without it. Some people have no use for certain rights but that has nothing to do with the importance someone else may have for it. But liberals believe if they have no use for a particular right-like freedom of religion, the 2nd amendment-their judgment rules and others cannot be allowed to find it valuable for themselves. Any who insist they personally value any right the left has no use for are mocked, ridiculed, marginalized and demonized as “extremists”.

    • arrow2010

      Are you suggesting the immediate violent overthrow of the American government?

      • teamfrazzled

        Are you for real? If you read that and came away believing that was a discussion about the need for a violent overthrow anytime in your lifetime much less an immediate one, take a reading comprehension course. The 2nd amendment was specifically included however, as a means for keeping government in check and less likely to infringe on our rights, making the need for a violent overthrow less likely. It doesn’t guarantee it will never be necessary but the founders knew even then that no government had the ability to violently turn on its own citizens until they were first disarmed.

    Good! You shouldn’t be taking personal calls at work, anyway. It diminishes American productivity. Girl, get a pre-paid phone and STFU. You look like a whiny victim when the story really isn’t about you.

      You’re implying she should change her behavior out of fear of the government’s activity, what type of government do you desire? A tyrannical one?

        No, I’m saying she’s missing the point of the egregiousness of the government’s activity, and making it about how it’s an inconvenience to HER. Poor, poor Greta!!!

    Given the FACT that Faux News, along with other Conservative media, tried peddling fraudulent E-Mails a week or two ago, that were edited to support their lies, why would the Obama administration no go after these al-Qaeda in America cells?

    First you take the guns away… then you control the media so that only your propaganda gets spread.

    You have to be mentally retarded at this point in Obama’s second term to not recognize what the Obama administration is doing here. His hatred for Fox news is widely know. It’s not my opinion, it’s a fact. If this were a criminal hearing there is certainly enough circumstantial evidence that Obama HAD a motive to target Fox News employees via the Justice Department.

    I don’t believe for one second Obama had no knowledge of any of the scandals currently breaking. Even if we give him the benefit of the doubt, he’s proven to be one of the most incompetent, arrogant and ignorant Presidents in recent history.
