One of the hallmarks of the Obama administration is that it is among the most corrupt administrations in living memory.
The degree of corruption and thuggery to which many administration members have stooped would make even Boss Tweed of Tammany Hall fame blush. But what’s truly remarkable about the Obama administration is that its corruption is so unabashed.
Among the most corrupt functionaries of the Obama regime is Attorney General Eric Holder, who appears to be Obama’s alter ego and enforcer. From day one he let America know that he held most of its citizens in contempt by proclaiming that the American people were afraid of having an honest discussion about race.
Truth is Holder’s definition of an “honest discussion” consists of lecturing white Americans about their inherent racism and selectively prosecuting crimes according to the race of the accused. When Black Panther thugs intimidated voters outside a polling station in 2008 in Philadelphia and were caught doing so on camera, Holder refused to prosecute BECAUSE THEY WERE BLACK! Had the incident been the other way around, how long do you think it would have taken for a swat team to arrest, prosecute and/or terminate the perpetrators?
Holder’s refusal to hand over ‘Fast and Furious’ documents to a Congressional committee, and Obama’s declaration that said documents were not required to be released to Congress due to ‘executive privilege’ is further evidence of the Administration’s corruption. Having been caught in a government-run scam that was a thinly veiled attempt to create reasons to impose gun control on Americans, the administration has been stonewalling ‘Fast and Furious’ files for over 5 years. Initially they attempted to blame the Bush administration for the program that ended up putting thousands of military grade weapons into the hands of Mexican drug cartels and was ultimately responsible for the killing of at least one American border service agent. But as the truth about their mendacity emerged, the President blithely covered all the program’s records under the aegis of executive privilege.
When Richard Nixon, among other things, attempted to punish his enemies via the IRS, he was impeached and forced to resign from office. The Nixon Administration did all it could to prevent that sordid episode from becoming public, but journalists like Woodward and Bernstein held the administration’s feet to the fire until the truth emerged. Yet the Obama administration shrugs it off without so much as a peep from the so-called journalists who are colluding with Obama in attempts to cover up his corruption.
Interestingly, when the thug Holder was called before a congressional committee to testify about an ongoing terrorism investigation supposedly being conducted by the DOJ and asked to release documents to the committee, Holder again demurred. Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TEX) commented that the threat of another Contempt of Congress citation is likely no big deal to Holder. Holder’s terse reply was, “you don’t want to go there, buddy. You don’t want to go there. O.K.?” Or what? Is that some sort of veiled threat that Holder will make Gohmert disappear if he continues? And who has ever testified before Congress and called a committee member ‘buddy’? I’m surprised Holder didn’t call him mother——-r.
The IRS and the Department of Justice colluded to steal the 2012 presidential election by stonewalling conservative political groups and denying them their constitutional right to participate in the democratic process. Louis Lerner, the IRS’s former director of Exempt Organizations division was in touch with the DOJ prior to the 2012 election, plotting ways and means to stop participation by so-called conservative and Tea Party groups. Of course the rest is history, as they say.
When these felonious actions came to light, the IRS initially said they were the work of a few “rogue agents.” But that explanation did not survive the light of day, as more and more information about these crimes emerged. Democrats attempted to downplay the actions by the IRS and DOJ, with Democrat functionaries like Elijah Cummings claiming that beneath all that smoke there wasn’t even a trace of fire. Obama himself weighed in with his famous statement to Fox News that there was “not even a smidgeon of corruption” in the 2010-2012-election cycle. This from the same man who promised, “if you like your health insurance you can keep your health insurance.” We all know how that worked out.
The Obama Administration isn’t the first in American history that secured power through corruption. However, it is very likely the most criminally corrupt administration in this nation’s vaunted history. Its slick progressive veneer is slowly eroding to reveal its fascist intentions. It must be stopped and individuals like Obama, Holder and their loyal lackeys must be driven from public life. The only reason that impeachment proceedings haven’t been launched against Obama is because he’s black. I will write next week about America’s first Affirmative Action Presidency.
