White House Link to Illegal Taping of Sen. Mitch McConnell

I still recall the news and controversy that surrounded the Watergate affair that resulted in the resignation of President Richard Nixon.  The nation’s media was all over the illegal break in by Republicans and the subsequent cover up that lead all the way to the Oval Office.

It seems we now have a similar incident, only the liberal mainstream media is pretty much downplaying it because this time it was Democrats that broke the law.   Therefore, it’s no big deal since, well, the nation’s top Democrat breaks the law every day, doesn’t he?

On December 5, 2012, a number of Democrats attended a meeting at the White House. Among those in attendance was Barack Obama’s chief campaign fundraise Matthew Barzun from Kentucky.  Barzun wasn’t the only Kentucky Democrat that attended the White House meeting, so did Shawn Reilly.  Reilly signed in on the White House visitor’s log as part of the same group as Barzun, at the same time as Barzun, and was listed as attending a meeting in the same room as Barzun.

A few days after the White House meeting, Reilly began his attacks on KY Sen. Mitch McConnell, who also happens to be the Senate Minority Leader.  He made no secret that his goal and the goal of his liberal leftist political action committee, Progress Kentucky, was to replace McConnell in the US Senate with a liberal Democrat.  At the time, actress Ashley Judd had been indicating that she would run against McConnell, but when other information on her began to surface, the DNC started withdrawing their support and the last I heard, she has decided not to run for office.

On February 2, 2013, Reilly and Progress Kentucky co-founder Curtis Morrison, somehow snuck into an open house meeting being held by McConnell.  During the lunch sessions, McConnell, his staff and closest supporters met privately to hold a campaign strategy meeting.  Reilly managed to bug the closed meeting where some members of McConnell staff made disparaging remarks about Ashley Judd.

Earlier this month, Reilly released the tapes of the closed campaign meeting to the public via the very liberal magazine and website Mother Jones.  Reilly is now facing criminal charges for his illegal taping of McConnell’s closed campaign meeting.

Once it became known that Reilly was behind the leaked tape of the McConnell meeting, national Democratic leaders began distancing themselves from him, most claiming to have no idea who he was.  Reilly was described as being a political nobody who was acting completely on his own.

However, records later showed the Reilly was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte last year where he was able to rub shoulders with many of the top Democratic leaders.  Additionally, his presence at the White House meeting in December indicates that Reilly is not a nobody.  Nobodies are not invited to attend important White House political meetings.  Furthermore, he was in the company of Obama’s chief campaign fundraiser Matthew Barzun, also an indicator that Reilly was not a political nobody.

At this point, one can’t help but ask the obvious question of Reilly being instructed to do what he could to unseat and discredit Sen. McConnell.  Was that part of the strategy that was discussed at the White House Democratic meeting?

There is no doubt that a direct trail from Reilly to the White House exists just like the trail of evidence that tied the Watergate conspirators to the White House in the 1970s.  However, with Watergate, the media swarmed like a school of feeding sharks.  In the case of Shawn Reilly and Progress Kentucky, the same media is largely ignoring the story like they would ignore a highly contagious sick person.  Such is the hypocrisy of today’s mainstream media and ruling political party.

    We need to cauterize that wart called Washington D.C. About a 10kt physics package could do it.

    MOST people have no idea what Watergate was even about and yet despise Nixon thanks to the media & public school brainwashing. What he did was wrong but certainly did not warrant the ridiculous amount of attention & hype it received. People also have no clue what Benghazi, 4 DEAD, Fast & Furious, 1 DEAD, or Solyndra are thanks to the LACK of media coverage. Obama is the most CORRUPT, RACIST, MENTALLY ILL "president" we have ever had & yet is WORSHIPPED by the masses, why do you think that is? It is LONG PAST TIME to start holding the leftist media & the Communist, Socialist, Fascist, Marxist, DANGEROUS Democrats accountable for their actions.

    During the Watergate episode we had a slightly different news media! But, it has gotten absolutely ridiculous how one sided this socialist news media has become! With no help it is going to be totally up to us the citizens. I will say, I have had enough of this administrations B acon S andwich!
    With everything that is on the table as of today, there is enough to CONVICT at the very least 4 persons of this administration. These convictions are not for some petty things such as this, but for treasonous acts by our government. The first indictment would be "Fast and Furious"! The second indictment would be for the "Benghazi " incident.

    Stand up Citizens and let's make those responsible to be accountable! Enough is Enough! This can't go on any further!

    The Corrupt Leftist Media was just as biased during the Watergate era, as it is today: The big difference is that it has grown so arrogant, it no longer cares that we recognize this fact...

    The mainstream media exerts a tremendous force over politics in this country. Although Nixon’s involvement in Watergate was insignificant compared to all the fraud and deception that Obama has been involved in, it cost Nixon his job. The media has bowed at the feet of Obama and refused to publish anything that would make him look less than perfect. They have stooped to the level of Pravda and Radio Moscow during the cold war. They are now totally useless. The founding fathers believed that the news media was so essential to keeping the government honest that they gave it special protection in the Constitution. That entire structure has broken down. The media have almost totally aligned themselves with one political party. As a result a major part of the population that gets its news from television and newspapers is not hearing what they need to know. If the media had informed the nation about half of Obama’s shortcomings, he would have lost in a landslide. There was no mention of his lack of documentation. And then there were the outright failures, lies, cover-ups, and acts of treason involving the massacre in Libya and Benghazi, and the gun running project called “fast and furious.” The public did not hear of his close associations with Communists and Muslims. His tax cheating secretary of the treasury and his incompetent attorney general went skating by. He devised schemes to give tax-payer money to shady “green energy” companies that promptly went bankrupt and funneled the money to his buddies. The media would have made sure a Republican would not survive any of these issues.

    Doesn't matter in the least if this trail went all the way to king zero, which it undoubtedly does, the media will NOT push this, no, in fact it will get buried in king zero's litter box with all the other zhit he's got covered up.

    ...and where the hell is our Vaunted and Powerful Main Stream Media on this Abuse of Power? I'll tell you where they are at...they are worshipping at the feet and kissing the ass of the Affirmative Action President these Socialists helped to elect.

    The Criminal Main Stream Media are the Enemy of America. They tell Lies, are full of Marxist Bias and give Aid & Comfort to America's Enemies. They deserve what the same group of Lenin Fetistists got in the Soviet Union 100 years ago - The WALL!

    Two entities: The DNC with the balls to do anything they want and be able to get away with it either through Administration coverup or the LSM, and the RNC without the balls to retaliate or to only let out a whimper. The RNC is now run by a bunch of the "Good Old Boys", "go along to get along". and the new generation doesn't yet have the moxy or the backing to do anything about it, YET.
