‘Just bloggers’ right again: Amber Alert back up; Shameful Spite House claims ‘confusion’

October 07, 2013 0 Comments

If Amber Alert really had to shutdown b/c of lack of funds, as Obama said, why did it go back up today after bad PR? #GovernmentShutdown

Well, well. Fancy that!

As Twitchy reported, citizens noticed something odd about the Amber Alert website going dark Sunday night. Was it just a redirect ploy and a shutdown scam? Well, late Monday morning, the Spite House announced that it was back up and running.

Amazing. The Amber Alert website is back up and running. Never say Obama didn't do the least he could do – it's the least he could do….—

Surprise! It isn’t “non-essential” after all!

Once again, citizens and “just bloggers” did the job that the media, like HuffPo’s Sam Stein, doesn’t want to do.

honest q for folks who think this Amber thing's all a publicity stunt. Why would the WH shut things down like head start, which it supports?—
Sam Stein (@samsteinhp) October 07, 2013

@samsteinhp And is the implication that the administration doesn't support Amber Alert? One imagines it supports both, no?—

@samsteinhp You make it sound as if Amber Alert was taken down accidentally. There was a conscious decision to do so. It was intentional.—
SunnyRight (@sunnyright) October 07, 2013

I was assured by people like @samsteinhp that Amber Alert site had to be taken down because there was no money. Funny how it's back up now.—

It was just “confusion,” y’all!

But really @jaketapper, there was no "confusion" re Amber Alert site, they know what they're doing & so do we. #SpiteHouse

Precisely. The Spite House struck again.

@EvanMcSan This after the White House insisted it HAD to be taken offline because there was no money. Bad PR found money, I guess.—

The DOJ reports that a person was taken off of furlough to re-open the Amber Alert website huff.to/1bQ5iDz

@HuffPostCrime Website didn't shut itself down. Someone dedicated time and money to shutting it down to begin with.—
SunnyRight (@sunnyright) October 07, 2013

There was no appropriation of funds between yesterday and today. Yet the Amber Alert website, which was taken down yesterday, is back today.—
SunnyRight (@sunnyright) October 07, 2013

@samsteinhp Point is it's all absurd. But none of this is new. The concept of agencies maximizing pain to secure funds is not a new one. 1/2—
SunnyRight (@sunnyright) October 07, 2013

@samsteinhp more dire than the situation is to maximize political gain. Again, not a new or wild concept. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washingto… That's all.—

Dead-on. First the Obama administration admitted it was holding our memorials for ransom. Now, our missing children.

After learning their ploy to score points at the expense of abducted children has backfired, WH reopens Amber Alert. thelead.blogs.cnn.com/2013/10/07/aft…

#ObamaShutdown the Amber Alert website because it had the potential to scare people into supporting him, not because he had to.—
SunnyRight (@sunnyright) October 07, 2013

Beyond reprehensible.

Dear "journalists": Since Obama has now turned the Amber Alert site back on, you might ask him why it was ever off in the first place….—

Ha! We won’t hold our breath. But, no worries. “Just bloggers” will continue to do the job.

Rep. Stockman leaves us with a frightening exit point:

Obama administration shuts down Amber Alert site, blames "confusion."

Don't worry. They're still in charge of your health care.—
Rep. Steve Stockman (@SteveWorks4You) October 07, 2013

It’s terrifying, because it’s true.
