The number of domestic scandals plaguing the Obama administration may have taken a back seat in the media–for the moment–but House Republicans and other investigators are slowly uncovering the truth.
Representative Trey Gowdy’s House investigation into the Benghazi attacks and their aftermath is scheduled to continue soon with public hearings. Experts predict the current lull in illegal immigration will soon abate, and be replaced with new and larger influxes of Central Americans once the peak heat of the summer months begins to dissipate, making crossing the desert less dangerous. Obamacare is losing so many enrollees that the program may not be able to sustain itself for much longer.
Now another scandal that hasn’t gotten a lot of press lately threatens to make Obama’s summer vacation even worse.
According to Fox News, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered Eric Holder’s Justice Department to provide the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee with “a list of documents that are at the center of a long-running battle” over the Fast and Furious gun-walking operation.
The DOJ has until October 1 to produce the information.

Obama has invoked executive privilege to keep the documents confidential, but the judge, an Obama appointee, has ordered that congressional investigators be given at least a list of the documents being withheld.
House Republicans hope that the documents will help explain why the Justice Department “took nearly a year to admit that federal agents had engaged in” the controversial gun-walking operation.
Certainly, all presidents should be allowed to keep secrets–to protect taxpayer privacy, ensure national security, and allow advisers to provide counsel free from concern of public accusations about what is often only a deliberative process, not a decision.
However, for a president who often claims to run the most transparent administration in history, President Obama hides an awful lot from the American people. It’s time for him and his attorney general to come clean.
On Tuesday, August 19, 2014, the Islamic State posted a video on YouTube showing the decapitation of American journalist James Foley. A second American, Steven Joel Sotloff, was paraded in front of the camera. Foley’s executioner, totally clad in black and speaking with an English accent, stated “the life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision.”

Let me begin by acknowledging that this inspirational title is lifted from a tweet by screen actor James Woods. And now I will explicate his tweet.
Every sentient human being whose brain isn’t stuffed with ideological fairy dust can see that Obama is behind every major scandal of his administration from Benghazi to the I.R.S. disgrace. How can one know this? Because the culprits haven’t been fired. Moreover, if they are serial liars like Susan Rice, they’ve actually been promoted to posts where their loyalty to the criminal-in-chief can do America and its citizens even more damage, if that is possible.
A president faced with a scandal created by underlings behind his back would be naturally furious at their misbehavior, and want heads to roll. This didn’t happen in any of these scandals because their point of origin was the White House itself. Promoting the culprits is a way of keeping them quiet.
And what exactly is the I.R.S. scandal about – to take just one case? It’s a plan unprecedented in modern American politics to push the political system towards a one-party state by using the taxing authority of the government to cripple and destroy the political opposition. The administration’s campaign to promote voter fraud by opposing measures to stop it (and defaming them as “racist” is guided by the same intentions and desire).
And why shouldn’t Obama want to destroy the two-party system since he is also in utter contempt of the Constitutional framework, making law illegally, and defying an impotent Congress to stop him? Of course every radical, like Obama, hates the Constitutional framework because, as Madison explained in Federalist #10, it is designed to thwart “the wicked projects” of the left to redistribute income and destroy the free market.
The same desire to overwhelm and permanently suppress the opposition drives the war that Obama and the Democrats have conducted against America’s borders and therefore American sovereignty. Their plan is to flood the country with illegals of whatever stripe who will be grateful enough for the favor to win them elections and create a permanent majority in their favor. The immediate result of these efforts is that we have no secure southern border, and therefore no border; and therefore we have effectively invited criminals and terrorists to come across and do Americans harm.
Which brings us to the deepest level of Obama’s hell, which is his anti-American foreign policy…
