White House Dossier Slows Down Until Jan. 2

by Keith Koffler on December 27, 2013, 12:07 am

I’ll be cutting back on posts through January 2, getting some rest and doing some work behind the scenes. I will post occasionally below – including some open threads – while leaving this message on top of the website.

Thanks for a great year. I hope you enjoy the rest of the holiday season, and I’ll be back with you full time in a few days.

Keith, you deserve a break from the WH beat, BHO and especially the bloggers, including those who want to tell us how we can make a dollar three-eighty working at home. My neighbor was doing that and nearly made a fortune until the vice squad discovered just what he was doing at home.

Star December 27, 2013 at 10:05 am

Hey–those aren’t bloggers–they are Russian criminals.

Playrighter December 27, 2013 at 12:28 am


Thanks for all you do. We could use a lot more like you.

“Obama cares”? I care more that Keith Koffler cares.

Sadie December 27, 2013 at 12:51 am

A midnight document dump? LOL

Keith: Kidding aside. It’s your readers that owe you a big THANKS. You more than deserve a break from all the madness.

gracepmc. December 27, 2013 at 1:33 am

Enjoy your well deserved break. Thanks for all you do in providing us with such great content and the opportunity to share and comment.

Julie Brueckheimer December 27, 2013 at 1:41 am

A very Happy New Year to you, Keith.

lizzytalorburton December 27, 2013 at 2:06 am

Happy New Year 2014 is a lucky number. Thank you for letting us vent our hearts. There is something wrong with a man who has to golf all the time even in Hawaii? Does he think he’s a professional golfer? It just seems that something is not right with that. Spite perhaps? as he knows we all keep count.

Darkangel December 27, 2013 at 2:11 am

Nobody’s going to complain if you slow it down a bit in late December. What would have gotten people wondering, would have been if you’d worked like a madman for the entire month, without once taking a break.(>.<)

So absolutely, go recharge your batteries, as the old saw goes, and we'll see you next week, fit as a fiddle and ready to go.

Just don't completely overdo the champagne on New Year's Eve. ^j^

Lee December 27, 2013 at 5:59 am

Keith, Have a wonderful time away. Thanks for the site, and the information you provide. I keep up with the daily news, but always find more important articles I may have missed. As well being able to comment and read other readers comment.
Happy New Year!!!

Lizzy December 27, 2013 at 6:04 am

Rest and enjoy:-)

sportinlife10 December 27, 2013 at 7:04 am

Yeah, what they say!

swedishlady December 27, 2013 at 7:29 am

Enjoy your well deserved rest Keith ! I chime in with everyone here, you are doing such a great job with this blog . I just read with great interest your article about Jonathan Karl. I say, thank heavens for men like you and Karl and other brave journalists who require some accountability from this White House, so full of lies and deception.
Read in the Drudge Report that ” Feds charge white “knockout” suspect with hate crime”. How about that ? They managed to find one white thug among all the black thugs committing this horrendous crime. They are not wasting any time to gear up some more racial division in the country. Well, they constantly need new shiny things to keep the focus away from all the disasters they bring about.

Star December 27, 2013 at 10:07 am

Yeah–I saw that. One guy who broke the pattern in their favor. Predictable…

swedishlady December 27, 2013 at 12:07 pm

Yesterday our public TV reported about the “knock-out games” in the US. Race was never mentioned, they just called it violent youth gangs. However, had it been white on black violence, oh then….. then there had been “free speech”.

Bonnie December 27, 2013 at 4:11 pm

Our esteemed attorney general, Mr. Holder, has take on this case.
What about all of the other “knockout games”, black on white, that have not been prosecuted by the Feds? Why this one?

Julie Brueckheimer December 27, 2013 at 10:13 am

I wonder if his legal representation will be able to bring out the inconsistency between how this one white man has been prosecuted and the number of black men who have not. I remember reading recently that the NYT was pooh-poohing the idea that knock downs were a violent trend in the country. Obviously we have an Attorney General and Department of ‘Justice’ which are color blind and racist.

swedishlady December 27, 2013 at 12:09 pm

Agree, Julie, well said.

Girly1 December 27, 2013 at 10:46 am

When is someone going to declare ‘open season’ on Eric Holder?

Julie Brueckheimer December 27, 2013 at 11:05 am

Another question is WHO is going to declare open season on Holder. Not the establishment Republicans obviously.

Sadie December 27, 2013 at 12:56 pm

Texas has hate crime laws on the books. If the white thug was allowed to be prosecuted in Texas, he could receive up to 20 years in prison. Federal statutes are 10 years. This case has more to do with the DoJ taking a swipe at Texas rather than the root causes of the so-called ‘knock out’ game rather than address the genesis and instigators of black on white crimes. Little spoken about, let alone covered by the press, is the disappointment in black communities of Obama. His presidency is like a golf course to him – he’s just playing through.

nanette lynch December 27, 2013 at 7:32 am

I will miss your daily insight of all the crazy, but you deserve a break!
Enjoy the time with your family.
We will all be here, ready for a great 2014 when you return!

Chris December 27, 2013 at 8:06 am

Since you have to witness all the WH madness and nonsense up close, you especially deserve some R and R! We appreciate all you do to keep us informed and aware. Knowledge is power!

Take time and enjoy the important things in life…See you next year!

DeniseVB December 27, 2013 at 9:28 am

Happy New Year Keith and enjoy your break !

65andcounting December 27, 2013 at 9:37 am

Yes, rest and enjoy but for those times when you are looking for something to do behind the scenes, I still get hung up in your spam folder more often then I get my comments posted.

AFVet December 27, 2013 at 10:26 am

I had the same problem,…contacted Keith and it appears that he has fixed it.
My comments are now showing up more often than not.

Lee December 28, 2013 at 8:05 am

I have not had any trouble posting for several days.
Thanks Keith.

Susan December 27, 2013 at 9:50 am

Enjoy the sabbatical, Keith. We’ll try not leave a big mess for you while you are away. Thank you for being a beacon of truth in a sea of beltway liars.

gracepmc. December 27, 2013 at 11:10 am

Bacon? We are going to have bacon? Yea!

Girly1 December 27, 2013 at 10:11 am

Enjoy the well-deserved winter break, Keith. The WHD site is a welcome sight for sore eyes that have seen the worst of the worst: hope and change…Obama-style. You are the Sultan of Satire, wit, and all that good stuff. Happy New Year to you and your family!

Mandy Manners December 27, 2013 at 10:37 am

Kick your feet up and have a cold one, Keith!

AFVet December 27, 2013 at 10:45 am

Keith, you deserve a well earned sabbatical.
Next year is going to be crucial to the survival of our republic.

The game is afoot.
It’s time to “Cry havoc,…and let slip the dogs of War!”

I seem to recognize this quote juxtaposition as being the Shakespeare as read by General Chang in Star Trek 6, although I may be wrong. If so, the comparison is worrisome, as it didn’t end well for ol’ Chang…

But then, Obama is no Kirk, either! KIRK could LEAD and INSPIRE; these are things that Obama couldn’t do if you gave him a “Leadership for Dummies” book and a flashlight to look in that deep, dark place where he gets his ideas from…

Nurd break over. Happy New Years all, and enjoy your break Mr. Koffler. We’ll try to keep it down to a dull roar until you get back…

Langley Spook December 28, 2013 at 6:50 am

…and Val Jarrett looks like a Romulan.

AFVet December 28, 2013 at 9:53 am

Yep,…and Kirk put a torpedo up his tailpipe.

Lizzy December 27, 2013 at 10:50 am

OT Speaking of ‘crickets’ you know they hibernate in the cold?
Just sayin.:-)

doriangrey1 December 27, 2013 at 11:06 am

You’ve done some great work this year Keith, take your break and come back recharged.

How many Constitutional violations equal an Impeachment?

qestout December 27, 2013 at 11:10 am

Who, then, will be keeping us informed of the golf count :D ? Enjoy your time off, Keith.

Car in December 28, 2013 at 8:17 am

That’s exactly what I was concerned about. Is someone on this?

Keith Koffler December 27, 2013 at 4:59 pm

Thanks everyone for such nice wishes! See you soon.

ImNoDhimmi December 27, 2013 at 5:28 pm

Keith, thanks for all you do! Best wishes for a very happy, healthy and successful New Year to you and your family, and to all the posters and friends here at WHD.

MarjoJimbo December 27, 2013 at 6:27 pm

Happy New Year, Keith, to you and yours.

And as I liked to say to my high schools students–See you next year! (Did I see you roll your eyes like they would do, too?)

Ellen Hack December 27, 2013 at 7:14 pm

Happy New Year, Keith. is always at the top of my browser history. It is a welcome beacon (NOT bacon :-)) in a sea of untruths, half-truths, omissions and outright lies spewed by the MSM. What will it take to wake them up completely? Happy New Year to all my fellow patriots, as well. 2014 should be an interesting year!

Sadie December 27, 2013 at 7:30 pm

Keith: A big thanks for dropping by and bringing the can of RAID.

Sadie December 27, 2013 at 7:39 pm

Topic: Bombing in Beirut and the murder of the Lebanon ambassador to the US, who was pro-Western, anti-Iran/Hezbollah/Assad.

It’s only going to get worse. We’ve got President Nero with no foreign or domestic policy. Obama’s ‘red line’ is yellow and it runs up and down his back and/or it’s two-toned with white and he’s a skunk as well.

J December 31, 2013 at 10:11 pm

You have been great Keith:

Stay on it in 2014.
