Michael Grazier: So he says.
Jedediah Tucker Ward: So he says under oath. Do you understand, sir,that you are testifying under oath?
Michael Grazier: Yes, I do.
Jedediah Tucker Ward: And that perjury is grounds for disbarment?
Class Action 1991
A couple of days ago I talked about the Gerorge Zimmerman / Trayvon Martin meme as a “news dump“. Today provides the perfect example.
The “Big Trayvon Story” that is ruling Memeorandum is the idea that Trayvon Martin threw the first punch, advanced by the most famous teenager in the nation right now Rachel Jeantel. He did so obviously because he was worried about being raped by a gay “creepy ass cracker” (which has not stopped gay groups from going all in for “justice for Trayvon” faster than NOW broke out their presidential kneepads for Bill Clinton).
However the single most newsworthy story of the day will be taking place far from the Martin/Zimmerman media circus, before the House Oversight Committee:
Retiring IRS lawyer Carter C. Hull implicated the IRS Chief Counsel’s office, headed by Obama appointee William J. Wilkins, and Lois Lerner, the embattled head of the IRS’ exempt organizations office, in the IRS targeting scandal and made clear that the targeting started in Washington, according to leaked interviews that Hull granted to the Oversight Committee in advance of Thursday’s hearing.
The significance of this can’t be overstated. Of all the Obama scandals the IRS scandal is the only one that is not only easily understood by a public that fears the IRS but has an actual legal component that could send someone to jail. Now a witness is going to link this to the White House: Under Oath
By saying these things under oath he is maintaining, under pain of perjury, that this scandal is a White House scandal.
If true this means that a criminal enterprise meant to affect the results of a presidential election by disabling the political opponents of a sitting President can me linked to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in a tight election. (As opposed to a 2nd rate burglary before an election that was the biggest landslide in history which is considered the standard for Presidential corruption by the media and has been for two generations).
I don’t expect the MSM is going to bother going there, In fact I expect them to ignore it but the trap here is for them, it’s for US, the New media.
We are fueled by hits, we are going to get a lot more hits talking Jeantel vs Hull, that’s basic math. But as I was reminded by Andrew yesterday as I watched Hating Breitbart for the first time, it’s up to the new media to get stories like the Hull testimony out there, so it’s up to us to make sure this story is promoted.
So don’t fall into the trap, the Carter Hull testimony linking the White House to the IRS scandal not only IS the biggest news of the day, but it’s going to be the cornerstone for any future action against the White House. That is the story that needs to be pushed, linked and talked about.
Don’t be caught in the Jeantel trap, unless you can cleverly work her into the Carter Hull post and maybe draw some eyeballs to it. Like so.
Update: Ed Driscol avoids the trap.
Update 2: Via Glenn, HOLY *&R@!!!!

Guys let’s get onthe ball
Well Marketing dictated I go with Market Basket as the lead and the two Market Basket post continue to rule the roots in terms of hits around here.
However for all the hits they have produced for the blog they have not produced a single tip jar hit. and my weekly paycheck is dependent on tip jar hits and the only movement toward this weeks paycheck was a $2 subscriber weekly dip. (and believe me in an empty day that really means something).
So I’m still short needing 5 $22 Tip jar hits to get to the full paycheck this week.
If you care to help me across the finish line just hit DaTipJar below.
