Death and taxes are certainties but so too is Barack Hussein Obama’s mainstream media.
A number of reports have linked Oscar Ramiro Ortega Hernandez, the man arrested for firing two rifle shots at the White House last Friday, with the Occupy Wall Streeters, more specifically the Occupy D.C. branch of that anarchist movement.
Pictures of the scruffy, bearded Ortega Hernandez show him looking like a virtual poster boy for both the OWSers and Anarchy International.
No one was injured in the attack. Not unusually, the First Family was away on travel mode.
It didn’t take the FBI, the ATF, the U.S. Park Police, and the Secret Service long to zero in on the Occupiers at Washington’s McPherson Square in their search for suspects. Ortega Hernandez was captured without incident on Wednesday at a Hampton Inn in Indiana, Pennsylvania by Pennsylvania State Police.
The capture may have gone without incident but the McPherson Occupiers were positively aghast at the government intrusion on their encampment. As Ralph Wittenburg, a spokesman for the leaderless group, told TalkingPointsMemo,com, authorities came through “searching for a so-called terrorist who shot at the White House, with no warrant, they went into everybody’s tents.” (http://tiny.cc/v2ipr)
Gasp! How nosy of them going into tents sans warrant, which they didn’t need on public property, trying to find a “so-called terrorist,” who had merely launched a couple of rounds at America’s Executive Mansion!
Our current chief executive just happens to be a big supporter of New York’s Occupy Wall Street mob as well as their offshoots throughout the nation, all of which have demonstrated their true colors with their anti-American, pro-socialistic, pro-Marxist, pro-Communist placards, not to mention their penchant for thievery, raping, and general aim to disrupt and, most recently, plans to destroy and conquer.
It could be that the “mansion” idea ticked off Ortega Hernandez since the Occupiers detest people with an unseemly amount of money, except of course, Michael Moore, Susan Sarandon, Alec Baldwin, Barack Obama, et al. who support the OWS cause. But it’s definitely the customary protectionist instinct that is motivating the MSM to play down Ortega Hernandez’ connections with the OWS.
The Obamassiah is in the Occupiers’ corner so no mainstream media associations will be drawn between Obama and nutcases like Ortega Hernandez!
Esquire.com had the temerity to publish a comment on the shooting linking Ortega Hernandez with the OWS and dismisses it with the inane editorial comment, ”He also ‘spent time’ with the local police. Doesn’t make him a cop.” (http://tiny.cc/mczpi)
Doesn’t make him a patriot, either.
Still, the grand prize for Obama cover-ups goes to the former “All the news that’s fit to print” publication, the New York Times which now publishes all the news it sees fit to print or distort. A thousand-word NYT article on the shooting that references the Truman Balcony and the National Christmas Tree only in an aside, six paragraphs down, mentions Ortega Hernandez’s OWS connection.

When the Occupy Wall Street movement erupts into extreme violence, the ultimate aim of its organizers who crave that eventuality, Obama’s MSM will still cover for him and blame those nasty rich people–without citing Obama as one of the one-percenters the OWS so detests.
Only in America!
