Day After Dow Plunges Over 600 Points, White House Seeks To Calm Nerves By Canceling Obama Speech, Scrapping Carney’s Daily Press Briefing…

Weasel Zippers

Head, meet sand.

(WaTi) — One day after the stock market took its biggest plunge since the 2008 financial crisis, President Obama on Tuesday canceled a previously scheduled speech at a local moving company, and the White House also pulled the plug on the daily press briefing.

Instead of traveling to Springfield, Va.-based Interstate Moving Services and making public remarks on fuel efficiency standards for work trucks, Mr. Obama will meet privately with industry officials at the White House this morning — and that meeting will be closed to the press, the White House announced in a scheduling update Tuesday morning.

In addition, a 12:30 briefing with press secretary Jay Carney has been canceled, the update said.

On Monday, the stock market suffered its worst blow since before the president took office, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average plummeting more than 630 points — losing more than 5 percent of its value and plunging below the 11,000 line. The turmoil came after ratings agency Standard & Poor’s late on Friday cut the country’s credit rating from AAA to AA-plus for the first time in U.S. history.

“Fast and Furious” Goes All the Way to the White House

Human Events

By now, “Gunwalker” and “Fast and Furious” have both entered the national lexicon.  And although the amount of information known about the operations varies from person to person, the majority of Americans know they have something to do with the selling of guns to “straw purchasers” in the U.S., who were supposed to smuggle the guns into Mexico and put them in the hands of cartel members, who were then to be arrested.

What most people seem not to know is who exactly was behind the Gunwalker and Fast and Furious operations. Was it the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives)?  Yes.  Was it also Attorney General Eric Holder?  Well, there’s no doubt he was instrumental in Gunwalker, and it’s now known that his chief of staff was briefed on Fast and Furious.  So how about President Obama? What did he know?  According to information that has surfaced during ongoing investigations by Rep. Darrell Issa (R.-Calif.) and Sen. Charles Grassley (R.-Iowa), it’s certain that knowledge of Fast and Furious went all the way to the White House.
