Of the biggest news stories in the past week, and some of the largest in the past several years, are the Obama Administration scandals and the blatant disregard that has been so obviously put on display by the Obama administration.
The scandals began with the IRS and moved to a revelation that the administration lied regarding the Benghazi attack talking points from the CIA than progressed into a story about the administration wiretapping the Associated Press’ (AP) phone lines and emails.
President Obama was blasted from all sides and both major political parties including the news media.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, famous for claiming that listening to Barack Obama sent a “thrill up his leg,” exclaimed that he doesn’t think that Barack Obama even wants to be president.
Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart, usually known for poking fun at Republicans, went on a five-minute tirade blasting the Obama administration and admitting that the groups that he usually attacks do have credibility when attacking the President.
The IRS already frightens many people, but now we know that the IRS has been used as a political tool to silence American citizens who peacefully oppose the President’s policies. The subpoenaed witnesses testified to intimidation as fact. It isn’t just taking away free speech from citizens; the Obama administration appears to be guilty of punishing Americans for using free speech.
The sad part is that this story gets worse. Not only did the IRS target conservative groups, but according to the IRS Inspector General, “senior officials” in the Obama administration knew about the IRS targeting in June 2012, five months before the 2012 presidential election.
That bit of knowledge may have changed the election outcome, but information was withheld from the American people because that’s how Barack Obama runs his side shows. He determines what is “FAIR.”
As any horror movie might go, this story has one more terrible twist. The person who began targeting groups and individual citizens while working at the IRS was Sarah Hall Ingram, who was considered a natural to implement the ever changing rules of Obamacare; you know, that overreaching, socialist takeover of American healthcare that was pitched to the American people as definitely not a tax that was going to save you $2,500 per year and later defended by the Obama administration in front of the Supreme Court as definitely a tax.
This is more than an embarrassing or unfortunate series of events for the American people. This is proving to be a breach of the public trust by an intimidating administration that holds our constitutional principles and values in low regard.
It was known as far back as 2008 when it was seen coming. Most people, with no help from the news media, still don’t know the real Barack Obama today and may just stand by and accept punishment for not asking.
Now it appears that Barack Obama’s chickens have come home to roost.
