It seems to me, the Obama administration is the most overtly scandal ridden Presidency in my generation, but at the same time, the least overseen. Maybe the two go hand in hand. Perhaps having no oversight is a means to corruption. Another possibility is that, Obama gets no oversight because the people charged with oversight, fear him, or what they would see if they looked. It often happens that people are made immobile by terror. If the people who are tasked with guarding the public weal, are afraid of Obama or what they would see if they looked, then how much more important does that make it, to keep this President honest, or at least prove to the public he is not corrupt. Either way, President Obama is the first President since Jimmy Carter who hasn’t had to face a Special Prosecutor. With the astounding scandals Obama and his administration have been embroiled in during his Presidency, it defies logic, that none would ever be asked for, let alone appointed. This is dangerous to our republic. The very foundation of our system of government is based on checks and balances, to have an executive who is above oversight, and allowed to rule by caveat, (in the case of Obama, they call it Executive Order), is deadly to our liberty.
The scandals have been as many as they are varied under Obama. His administration showed it’s racist mindset by dismissing the Black Panthers case. You remember, the Black Panthers dressed up in military fatigues, with guns, on video, intimidating people at the voting booth. Yes… that minor overt voter intimidation case. The prosecutors on the case were almost ready to go to trial but Holder dismissed the case. Many believe it was because they were African Americans… including the prosecutors who resigned from the “Justice” Department over it.
Maybe the most egregiously criminal case, (Benghazi-gate isn’t fully matured yet), is Fast and Furious. This started under George Bush as a means to find where illegally purchased guns were going. Under Bush no guns actually got to Mexico… Bush’s administration scooped them up, before they disappeared. Obama’s administration changed the tactic however, letting thousands of small arms, walk into the darkness of Mexican drug cartels, where those guns were used to murder thousands of Mexican police, citizens and children, at least one American, and probably more. Meanwhile, Obama went on a gun vilification tour, blaming the gun violence in Mexico on the Right to keep and bear arms. As it turns out… it was Obama. Using Executive Privilege, to protect information about Fast and Furious from Congress, proves that Obama was in on it, else the use of Executive Privilege is corrupt… The American media finds it tedious to do their job, so it was Univision that informed us, Mexican drug cartels weren’t the only beneficiaries of the US government’s small arms trafficking program. The US government, under Obama, sent guns to militarized terrorist groups all over South America. None of which seek free markets and liberty for their people.
During this campaign season President Obama is fluttering hither thither and yon. At every stop it seems, he leaves a huge, unpaid bill, for the local municipalities. No other President has heaped such large costs for their visits on the local people. But wherever Obama goes there is a municipality the asks for recompense for the costs associated with having a President make a campaign stop. All over the country, if you look, there are stories like this. A few million here and a few million there, add up to a great deal of money around the nation, as a subsidy to Obama’s reelection campaign. If we had a truly unbiased media they would compile a few of these stories as a headliner…
Benghazi-gate is the most callus and potentially, the most outright corrupt, of them all. This scandal gets worse by the day. New data about the Obama administration having real time information, the overt lies, they ordered people to stand down and not go assist, they had military assets flying above the battle and still did nothing, the coverup itself, and the total apathy about the story by the unbiased press. Benghazi-gate may be a far bigger scandal than the rest. Yet, the investigator, is an Islamofascist, that Obama has assigned to the job! No calls, as of yet, for a Special prosecutor… And there won’t be.
This administration has gotten away with some of the most egregious acts against the public’s interest that I have seen in my lifetime. Fast and Furious dwarfs Iran-Contra by orders of magnitude. Benghazi-gate makes Watergate look like a kid picking his nose against a serial killer. This President lives in an opaque bubble. He does what he wants, writes Executive Orders like Marx wrote books, and uses the most corrupt means to his ends. This guy, who not only studied Saul Alinsky but taught Alinsky’s philosophy, is offended if anyone questions his motivation or actions, while he impugns everyone else’s. Clearly, Obama is the most overtly corrupt President in my lifetime… and the least investigated. It really says something about our political establishment… doesn’t it?
