The Ulsterman Report alerts us of a letter from Senator Grassley and Congressman Issa to the DOJ that begins:
Following yesterday's vote to hold the Attorney General in contempt of Congress, we are now concerned that the Justice Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) may be even more motivated to engage in acts of retaliation against the whistleblowers who brought this matter to light. We just learned that ATF senior management placed two of the main whistleblowers who have testified before Congress about Fast and Furious under the supervision of someone who vowed to retaliate against them.
Then Chief of ATF's Public Affairs Division - Scot Thomasson - said, "We need to get whatever dirt we can on these guys [the whistleblowersl and take them down," according to a direct eyewitness account. Thomasson was also allegedly heard to have said, "All these whistleblowers have axes to grind. ATF needs to f-k these guys."
When asked if the whistleblower allegations were true, Thomasson purportedly said he didn't know and didn't care.
How many more stories do we need to convince the mainstream CONSERVATIVE media (MSCM) that these people are not just “politically” motivated – but they are outright Marxist saboteurs intent on crippling the United States? There was a good sign today that the often good-sometimes RINO Human Events ran an article called, “TOP 10 OBAMA POWER GRABS.” Even with all the doublespeak and wimpy disclaimers, the publishing of Obama’s literary agent’s Kenyan nationality was a huge breaking of the MSCM.
But instead of treating this like an aggressive cancer that could kill the patient in months, our “conservatives” are treating this like obesity, or at best, an early STD.
You would think it would be enough to realize that the moves of Obama isn’t just “liberal business as usual” by observing:
- The US House of Representatives referred a citation of contempt against a significant member of the administration and not only did the Department of Justice announce they were REFUSING to investigate OR prosecute, the President made no call for his own administration to follow the law.
- A 5 year attempt by Democrats to legislatively change the Constitutional meaning of “natural born citizen,” PROVING even they don’t believe that a citizen born to only one US citizen or less is eligible to be President.
- A six month law enforcement investigation that concludes Obama’s long form birth certificate and selective service registration card are both forgeries.
- The Obama Whitehouse invites no-fly list Muslim Brotherhood terrorists to the White House and then refuse to turn over documents THE WHITE HOUSE GAVE TO THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD for over one year.
- An Obama campaign group that is shutting down conservative blogs that are giving whistleblower testimonies on plans inside the Department of Homeland Security.
- The report by 9 state Attorney Generals that the Obama Administration has broken 21 laws.
- Obama is personally selecting “assassinations by drone” without the normal military or Constitutional authority or procedures in place. Combined with the unchallenged unconstitutional directive to kill a US citizen (except by Ron Paul) OVER THE PROTEST OF A FEDERAL JUDGE, the Executive Orders allowing Obama and our military to engage citizen “combatants,” the putative President has given himself the authority to unilaterally take over the internet, banking, any “essential” business and institute martial law only with an order of “National Emergency” which he did Monday, June 25th.
To show you how naive I am, I thought Congress, if not the GOP candidates, would have been foaming at the mouth in every debate, interview and campaign ad over the illegal destruction of the entire Gulf Oil industry by forging the findings and writing of the committee named to advise the President on the drilling matter.
I deeply appreciate Senator Grassley and Issa for locking on to Fast and Furious like junkyard pit bulls. Where are the REST of our elected officials demanding that President Obama and his entire cabinet resign? How about our candidates like Bachman and Gingrich? How about the Tea Party superstars like Palin? And the conservative media leaders like Malkin, Hannity, Levin and Limbaugh?
Sure, they express outrage in moments but why this “let’s wait til November” while he continues to dismantle EVERY form of safeguard we thought we had against tyranny.
Even on ObamaCare you have Gingrich and Hugh Hewitt saying “we will have to wait and see” whether Roberts was a traitor or a genius. WHAT? How does the precedent of a judge REWRITING the bill leave any room for withholding judgment? How can you say setting a precedent to tax BEHAVIOR (or the lack thereof) is anything BUT treason against the Constitution?
Especially, Speaker Gingrich who was the foundation of our article on how to enforce a Constitutional check on the Supreme Court? I’ll cut him some slack since he is in Italy and possibly hasn’t digested the finding, but truly… WTH!??
Dorothy, this isn’t Kansas anymore. You don’t bring a stick to a gun fight. And conservatives at every level had better wake up that these people are using EVERY power available to them while in office to hold justice at bay while decimating the Constitution and our economy.
