When the pressure to be forthcoming about events in Benghazi became so intense for the White House, to deflect, Lois Lerner came forward with her scripted apology about the IRS targeting conservative Americans. What Obama and “Team Obama” didn’t count on was that the IRS scandal would become as serious as the Benghazi scandal.

Nevertheless, the truth behind what really happened in Benghazi must be so damning that disclosing what the IRS was doing became acceptable collateral damage.

The same strategy is being implemented now. What has happened in the Veterans Administration is so scandalous that Obama needed the pressure alleviated. So, he swapped Sgt. Bergdahl for the Taliban Five, knowing it would cause an uproar, but he had no choice. Discovery of what has been happening to our veterans would be far worse. Bergdahl has bought him some time.

This is the problem with having a Narcissist for President. It isn’t that Obama refuses to admit he has been wrong about Benghazi or the VA; he can’t. He doesn’t believe he is wrong about anything. Narcissists never do, but in their efforts to cover their tracks, they make colossal blunders in judgment. This is what Obama has done with Bergdahl. What is surprising is that Obama thought he could get away with it.

Because he has been able to control most of the media, he assumed there would be no serious scrutiny of his actions. This is where he made a mistake, as discovery about who Bergdahl really is, is coming to light much more quickly than Obama anticipated. Unfortunately for the President, no one in Team Obama was willing to address the potential downside, which isn’t surprising. Sycophants are constitutionally incapable of confronting narcissists like Obama, choosing instead to tell their boss what a wise strategy it would be to divert from the VA by swapping a deserter for five mass murderers—a message our Narcissist-in-Chief was eager to hear.

To all of my conservative friends: You cannot complain about Lois Lerner invoking her 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination and hold fast to your belief in the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Amendments. All of these rights are inalienable, including the 5th. If you’re against the 5th but you are for the 1st, 2nd, and 4th, you are no different than the Progressives who believe it is their right to pick and choose whether or not we should have the right to freedom of religion, speech, privacy, and the right to own weapons.

These are rights our Creator bestowed on us as inalienable. So, if you believe in the Constitution, you must accept the 5th Amendment as valid. You do have every right, however, to come to the conclusion that Lerner’s need to remain silent means that President Obama was lying when he said there was not “even a smidgen” of corruption, concerning the IRS’s targeting of conservative 501c-4 political action groups. Remember, Lerner was willing to lie about her involvement in the IRS targeting before she was under oath, but not after she was placed under oath. Obama’s remarks were not under oath, which definitely makes their verity suspect.
