Jay Carney: White House Did Not Know About Petraeus Scandal Until Wednesday After Election (Video)

It’s an Obama world…
Jay Carney told reporters today that the White House did not know about the investigation of the CIA Director until after the election on Wednesday.

“I’d refer you to the FBI. They have protocols in place on when to notify legislative and executive branches on investigations. It is simply a fact that the White House was not aware of the situation with General Petraeus.


Carney went on to tell reporters that Obama is going to focus on jobs.
Another lie.

    If true, the level of incompetence in the White House is staggering.

    Liar. If people haven’t noticed, in the last little while a number of high ranking military men have been shaken down. General Ham of Africom, that Rear Admiral being investigated involved in the Benghazi affair, General Allen, and General Petraeus. Obama is shaking up the military – he is going to put in men who are loyal to him and his ideaology. I’m sick of hearing about these affairs – that is just noise hiding what is really going on here.

    “I know nothing…….nothing…… no one told me” someone was heard muttering about Fast & Furious and Benghazi.

    When socialists are caught, they are taught to deny, deny, and deny some more. If any President doesn’t know what is going on, then he isn’t doing his job. If anyone thinks Obama didn’t know and wasn’t saving this to use to his advantage, they don’t have a brain.

    “I can not answer questions because I am out of country or on my way” was heard muttering by someone going OverSeas. “You must ask whoever you can find/pindown or who is too stupid to go OverSeas”. “A terror attack? How would I know since I am traveling OverSeas.”

    Guess who….

    Bullshiite. Holder knew. If Holder knew then Zero knew.

  • Well, if that is the case, (and I do not believe it is) than the Leader of the United States of America, the President, needs to be fired for failing to do his job. Geeze, they must think we are really stupid.

    Carney went on to tell reporters that Obama is going to focus on jobs.

    Left unsaid was that the focus will be on killing them, not creating them.

    Actually, this is Part of the Plan, get rid of undesirables, load the bureauacracy with sycphants and consolidate all Executive Power in various ‘czars’. We don’t need no steekin’ Secretarys!

    Asking Jay Z to let him use his studio to create his own rap album-Yo, BO raps!

    His Asia trip so Michelle (while in beautiful sunny Bangkok) can tell the rest of us to “sacrifice” for the “good of the country”.

    Telling Diane Sawyer and the rest of the “JournOlists” to keep Benghazi off the radar screen like good little children while he’s gone

  • Ella

    President Whats-his-face doesn’t know anything,Hillary doesn’t have time, Joe Biden thinks it’s the video, as does Susan Rice, Jay Carney has become a professional liar with lots of practice and Leon Panetta has to read about it in the newspapers. Eric Holder knows but he is not telling as does David Petraeus. Where is Paula Broadwell? We are ready for Chapter 2 and we should give her a microphone and some personal protection.

    Obama is a superhero. I absolutely mean this and I think it’s time we recognize his absolute, unprecedented awesomeness. No president, no, no leader ever, in history, has been able to be impenetrable to the consequences of his doings. Obama’s had enough material in just four years to lead to a dozen impeachments yet he not only has not a scratch, he’s elected with even stronger results than when he had no track record.

    Orwell got it wrong (as did the Soviets): 1984 isn’t a dark, dank, hopeless Soviet block house world. It’s an irreverent, pop culture-led state media controlled production where you’re given surface liberties to screw anything you want (unless you’re a conservative), have free phones, free condoms, free Internet, free foodstamps, as long as you absolutely give up meaningful liberties.

    It’s a Teletubbitopia, a happy land of play, rolling in the sack, voracious consumption of television programming and idealizing of celebrities you’re provided with to consume on demand. Just watch the tube and believe in the “reality” programming provided for you, don’t complain, and ObamaStuff will arrive, free of cost. Voting, free speech, the ability to confront an utterly and criminally corrupt government, political self-determination, the ability to work hard and retain what you produced, the ability to choose your own path in life and succeed, are all prohibited. But enjoy a bowl of simulated cake frosting and watch this simulated reality TV show and be happy! Have some free GMail (please note we will harvest your identity as the price for your usage).

    Jay Carney Fife, You are the biggest liar or the front man for the most corrupt and incompetent administration ever. Which is it ?

    For a President we are told who is so freaking smart and knows everything….he sure doesn’t know ANYTHING. Fast and furious… I know nothing, Benghazi… I know nothing, General gate…I know nothing, obamacare disaster…I know nothing. Just call Obama Schultz !

  • Indiana

    Let’s just dismiss this debaucle as Obama’s production of “The Real Lives of West Point Wives.” Forget about Benghazi, Fast & Furious, Acts of War, Voter Fraud, Obamacare, Swift Boat Kerry, clueless bimbette Susan Rice; Why would anyone trust this govrnment?

    Maybe the military will wise up to Obama and ris us of this plauge by Military Coup.
    Obama appears to be eliminating all our top Generals probably because they don’t agree with his policies. This is what the left do, if you don’t agree with them, they create a scandel to destroy you. Here’s a snippet from a CNN Online article from 2008 that shows who Obama really is.

    In his first race for office, seeking a state Senate seat on Chicago’s gritty South Side in 1996, Obama effectively used election rules to eliminate his Democratic competition.

    As a community organizer, he had helped register thousands of voters. But when it came time to run for office, he employed Chicago rules to invalidate the voting petition signatures of three of his challengers.

    The move denied each of them, including incumbent Alice Palmer, a longtime Chicago activist, a place on the ballot. It cleared the way for Obama to run unopposed on the Democratic ticket in a heavily Democrat district.

    “That was Chicago politics,” said John Kass, a veteran Chicago Tribune columnist. “Knock out your opposition, challenge their petitions, destroy your enemy, right? It is how Barack Obama destroyed his enemies back in 1996 that conflicts with his message today. He may have gotten his start registering thousands of voters. But in that first race, he made sure voters had just one choice.”

    Obama’s challenge was perfectly legal, said Jay Stewart of the Chicago’s Better Government Association. Although records of the challenges are no longer on file for review with the election board, Stewart said Obama is not the only politician to resort to petition challenges to eliminate the competition.

    Gee – Records are no longer available – Sound Familiar?

    Earth to Obama, doesn’t matter who what where when why or how
    you knew of the Petreaus “affair”.. the ONLY “affair” you should be

    I’m sure Zero will focus on jobs. The traitor seeks cataclysm as cover for imposing tyranny, and eliminating jobs, especially sustainable jobs in the private sector, is surely part of his plan.

  • Ree-C

    Carney said, “The White House did not know…” Notice he did not say, “The President” or “President Obama” did not know.

    Of course, members of our 4th Estate did not ask a follow-up question asking for that clarification.

    Everything these clowns say have to be carefully parsed. But then again, those that should be interested in doing so, since it is their job, are not going to do so.

    Our country is screwed.

  • bigL

    these people like Carney and the junta et al are laughing at us.
    The next TeaPs group ought NOT to be in D.c.
    But in the outlying residential area, ‘where we all
    just happen to take our vacations’. all 25,000 of us. We fill up every mall pkg lot ,every Metro seat, Every taxi, every bus seat. all the roads and lanes as we sight see.
    Then after a week or weekend of that and no one can get to church ,synagogue, soccer, or work on time,maybe they will stop laughing at us. Parttic when the families of govt bureaucrats and congressers are saying “Get them to go home, what do they want”?

    Hey people who voted for Obama!!!!

    Are you paying attention? Are you taking notes? If you are and you are seriously comprehending what is going on, then you will soon realize what many of us have already realized.

    Mark my words….Obama will use his executive privilege to either protect himself or one of his other flunkies.

  • Theadora


    A White House petition gathering force calls for citizenship to be stripped and exile for anyone who signs a petition in favor of a state’s secession.

  • CV1

    Taken form an article in The Prague newspaper…

    “The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”

    How true! How true!

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    “The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.”

    Keeping that in mind, we’ve got quite some time to go before the damage done by such citizenry can be undone, if it can be undone at all.

    “Jay Carney told reporters today that . . . ”

    Jay Carney? Yeah, he’s credible. Just like Susan Rice is crecible.

    Sadly, there is no longer any reason to believe either of them about anything – nor a reason to believe anyone in the White House – or anyone associated with this administration.

    Hunker down, elect opposition candidates in 2014 and make sure you persuade your friends and neighbors to vote in 2016. It does matter.
