Fast and Furious.
These are all disasters created by the Obama regime.
No one has been fired. No one had been held accountable for any of them. No one. But see if you can discern the common thread among them all.
Four dead, many injured. We still don’t know where Obama was during the attack. Four officials were “suspended” and disciplined with a paid
vacation leave, they were reassigned. No one has been punished.
For her role in lying to America a bout the Benghazi attack Susan “The Video” Rice was promoted to National Security Adviser.
Obama promised to avenge the Benghazi attacks, but the attackers know about Obama’s promise to let you keep your doctor and your plan and thus, they know they are safe.
The whistleblower who sought to bring the truth to light -Glen Hicks- has been demoted.
Fast and Furious
Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress for his failure to hand over documents. Other than that, nothing. Just nothing.
A no-bid contract to a Canadian company where a classmate of Michelle Obama is an executive.
It’s OK, because, you know, the dog ate her homework.
She’s an idiot, but then, she’s not alone.
The Department of Justice spied at length on James Rosen
The Justice Department spied extensively on Fox News reporter James Rosen in 2010, collecting his telephone records, tracking his movements in and out of the State Department and seizing two days of Rosen’s personal emails, the Washington Post reported on Monday.
In a chilling move sure to rile defenders of civil liberties, an FBI agent also accused Rosen of breaking anti-espionage law with behavior that—as described in the agent’s own affidavit—falls well inside the bounds of traditional news reporting. (Disclosure: This reporter counts Rosen among his friends.)
UPDATE: Fox News responds with a blistering statement that asserts Rosen was “simply doing his job” in his role as “a member of what up until now has always been a free press.”
The revelations surfaced with President Barack Obama’s administration already under fire for seizing two months of telephone records of reporters and editors at the Associated Press. Obama last week said he makes “no apologies” for investigations into national security-related leaks. The AP’s CEO, Gray Pruitt, said Sunday that the seizure was “unconstitutional.”
The Obama administration has prosecuted twice as many leakers as all previous administrations combined.
Since then, it’s only gotten worse.
Maryland State Police and federal agents used a search warrant in an unrelated criminal investigation to seize the private reporting files of an award-winning former investigative journalist for The Washington Times who had exposed problems in the Homeland Security Department’s Federal Air Marshals Service.
Reporter Audrey Hudson said the investigators, who included an agent for Homeland Security’s Coast Guard service, made a pre-dawn raid of her family home Aug. 6 and took her private notes and government documents that she had obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.
The documents, some of which chronicled her sources and her work at The Times about problems inside the Homeland Security Department, were seized under a warrant to search for unregistered firearms and a “potato gun” suspected of belonging to her husband, Paul Flanagan, a Coast Guard employee. Mr. Flanagan has not been charged with any wrongdoing since the raid.
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama tried to defuse a trio of controversies Thursday, pledging to work with Congress to ensure the IRS doesn’t abuse its power, urging legislators to provide more money to strengthen security at U.S. diplomatic outposts and promising to seek “a balance” between national security and a need to protect freedom of the press.
“I think we’re going to be able to fix it,” Obama said, speaking in particular of the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups for special scrutiny. He vowed to make sure the agency is “doing its job scrupulously and without even a hint of bias.”
Trying to steer clear of Republican criticism of the administration’s response to the terror attacks that killed four Americans last year in Benghazi, Libya, the president called on Congress to work with the White House to provide more money to strengthen U.S. diplomatic missions’ security.
The result? You can guess.
More than half a year after the IRS targeting scandal broke in May, federal investigators have still not contacted any of the 41 conservative groups represented in the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) lawsuit against the IRS.
Though the FBI and IRS both launched investigations into the wrongdoing, and Eric Holder’s Justice Department vowed to cooperate with the FBI probe, none of these agencies has contacted the ACLJ’s clients to figure out what happened.
“It’s now been more than six months since the public revelation of the IRS targeting scheme. The Obama Administration — including the White House — has repeatedly promised that an investigation would ensue and that we would get to the bottom of this unlawful and unconstitutional scheme. Unfortunately, that does not appear to be happening. To date, not one of our 41 clients has been contacted by the FBI, the Justice Department or any other federal investigative agency,” ACLJ chief counsel Jay Sekulow told The Daily Caller.
Obama’s response is to make persecution of his enemies official policy and make the IRS the enforcer for the democrat party.
Lois Lerner retired to get out of the crosshairs and she will receive a handsome pension as a reward for her contribution to the Obama schemes. IRS Chief Counsel William Wilkins has developed amnesia with regard to his contacts with the White House.
No one has been fired for any of this. No one has been punished. That leads one to a specific conclusion- this is exactly what Obama wants. It’s all part of the plan. Nothing else makes any sense.
The one thing they all have in common is “Obama promises” and you know what that’s worth. If you put all Obama’s promises in one spot they would form one big steaming pile.
