Scandal after scandal are now being recognized by the Liberal press, conveniently on this side of the 2012 Presidential election and in plenty of time for people to forget them by the 2014 midterm elections. Fast and Furious gun running deaths, Benghazi’s four deaths, IRS targeting Conservative groups, EPA also targeting Republican donors, the AP and FOX News intrusions, not to mention the NLRB attack on Boeing, the Justice Department suing the State of Arizona on immigration and South Carolina on voter IDs,and attempts to register and restrict gun ownership, all are part of the “change that we can believe in”.
This is the slogan that our President ran on and carried on to victory without ever having to explain to the impressionable young, the uneducated and those on government assistance what he really meant. With the assistance of the Liberal press, the only glimpse the people had of his true intent was a live campaign spot with Joe the Plumber when then candidate Obama let slip his intent to redistribute income.
Having some success at redistribution in his first term, mainly by enactment of Obamacare which gives free medical care to illegal aliens, and those that do not work, by forcing young workers to buy insurance they do not need and by raiding the seniors’ Medicare “trust fund”. Much more was needed, but could not be done without a second term, a second term that could not be justified by the state of the economy. That is where the Constitution and Bill of Rights got in the way. Texas Senator Ted Cruz stated recently that the Obama administration does not respect the Bill of Rights. This is evidenced by the above list of government infractions.
How much the 2012 Presidential election was swayed by illegal actions of the Obama administration can not be determined accurately, but it was considerable. Prior to the election, Obama cited Executive Privilege to stonewall Congress on their investigation into the ATF’s gunrunning operation. The Liberal media ignored it and the populace remained ignorant.
On September 11th, two months prior to the election, four people, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, died in a terrorist attack in Benghazi. Eight months later, Congress is still trying to sort out the lies and penetrate the stone wall put up by the Obama administration. Because of the collusion by the Liberal media to suppress the cover-up from their readers and viewers, Democrat voters are still asking who that Ben Gazi person is.
Prior to the 2012 Presidential election, many Conservative groups were seeking 501c4 tax status as were similar Liberal groups. The IRS used words such as Tea Party, Freedom etc. to hold up approval of the Conservative requests while expediting those for Liberal applicants. It has been almost three years for some of the Conservative applications and they have still not been approved. Without this approval, donations dried up and were not available for use in the election process.
The IRS also targeted religious organizations such as those run by Rev. Franklin Graham for audits which depleted funds targeted for benevolent use.
One of those targeted by the IRS, True the Vote, was subject to personal and family audits, ATF and FBI investigations and EPA and OSHA reviews. Needless to say, the True the Vote project that was to help secure the integrity of the 2012 Presidential election, never got off the ground.
The Obama administration tried to intimidate FOX News prior to the election but failed. Current revelations show that FOX News and its correspondent, James Rosen, have come under attack by AG Holder’s Justice Department.
Disregard for property rights, the right to bear arms, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press, along with systematic targeting of political foes by government agencies does not bode well for our survival as a free nation under our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
