Breathtaking: Obama Administration is dodging SEVEN scandals that warrant the appointment of special prosecutors

Written By: Bob - Jun• 10•13

Frankly, it’s getting hard to keep track of the scandals besetting the most corrupt Presidential Administration in American history.

The ATF, EPA, FBI, IRS, and OSHA are just some of the Executive Branch agencies known to have been used to harass Tea Party supporters on behalf of the White House, in apparently political oppression intended to neutral activist groups that were so effective in the 2010 elections in advance of the 2012 elections. In other words, this was an intentional attack, purposeful, voter disenfranchisement, electioneering, and racketing apparently orchestrated to subvert the First Amendment right to free political speech and undermine the opposition to the Obama campaign in a Presidential election.

There should be enough RICO-related prosecutions related to this travesty of justice alone to warrant the building of a new federal prison of all those involved… perhaps with a 6’x10′ “Presidential Suite.”

We know that the Justice Department—helmed by Eric Holder, who is in criminal Contempt of Congress, but whom the Obama Administration refuses to arrest, much less put on trial—secretly used laws designed to put spies to death against journalists, and then mislead Congress about his personal approval of the abuse of power.

Again, this blatant assault on the First Amendment should justify an independent federal prosecutor, and President Obama refuses to appoint one, perhaps knowing full well where the plot would lead.

We now know, thanks to CIA leaker Edward Snowden, that the National Security Agency has been snooping on every phone call, email, text message, tweet, Facebook post, web search, credit card transaction and personal communication made via technology, in a blatant violation of the Fourth Amendment that began under President Bush and which expanded exponentially under Obama. Snowden expects to die, and with Obama Administration intel officials publicly calling for him to be “disappeared” (assassinated in such a way as the body is unrecoverable) he should be afraid. Snowden, who was in a Hong Kong hotel, is currently on the run.

This warrants the appointment of yet another independent prosecutor to probe the Obama Administration for a raft of felony crimes.

Thanks to Snowden’s revelations and the dodginess of Obama Admin officials, Congress now wonders if the Administration was tapping their phone calls and email as well for political advantage.

This, too, warrants the appointment of yet another independent prosecutor to probe the Obama Administration for a raft of felony crimes.

This morning it was revealed that elements of the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) were engaged in sexual assault, prostitution, drug smuggling and other crimes, and the internal inspections into this criminal behavior were thwarted in yet another coverup.

That’s five independent prosecutors and investigations of this Administration that the most corrupt President in American history is dodging, and we haven’t included yet the various gun-walking plots including Fast and Furious (there were as many as ten), and the Benghazi cover-up, which brings us to a total of seven independent prosecutors that should be appointed to reveal the criminality and corruption of this Administration.

Barack Obama and Joe Biden could “do the right thing” and resign from office, at which point their successor, current Speaker of the House John Boehner, could pardon them of any crimes. I doubt Obama is willing to bow out of office with any dignity, however, creating the conditions for a dangerous tyrannical government, fighting against the very people it is sworn to protect.

    I’m counting down the days; at this point I think it’s closer to 360 or so before this all starts to go down in a big way

  2. Comrade X says:

    With many in this country today none of this independently nor combine amounts to a tipping point, in their eyes it doesn’t pertain to them.

    Reminds me of another day, just different groups:

    “In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.”

    — by Martin Niemölle

    Tyranny is tyranny no matter who the victims are.

    The tipping point will be when it affects us all where it hurts the most like putting bread on the table, like in a collapse of the dollar or our economy, then there will be those who stand for liberty and those who comply with tyranny & the solutions it offers or those that just run for cover, and it will be good that those who stand for liberty are armed!

    I always thought Nixon was pretty bad, killing the gold standard, giving us the EPA, etc etc and with all of his corruption but he did do one good thing, he stepped aside instead of destroying the country; IMHO Obama & his supporters want to destroy this country!

    Death before slavery!

  3. Mr. X says:

    I left Bracken’s essay What I Saw at the Coup over at the Washington Post thread for the 50% who are GS drones defending the NSA no matter what and or namby pambying saying this poor bastard could’ve gone public any other way. I reminded them that total information awareness leads to total tyranny which leads to violence.

    And this doesn’t even include the “insider trading” going on over at HHS.

  5. thesouthwasrght says:

    nothing will come of any of these abuses of power, yet those of us who frequent and post on sites like this are on their political dissident list awaiting the day they come for us.

  6. Sewer Urchin says:

    What does it say about our current situation when our own citizens are so fearful of our government they feel compelled to seek refuge in foreign countries?

  7. Mr. X says:

    “nothing will come of any of these abuses of power, yet those of us who frequent and post on sites like this are on their political dissident list awaiting the day they come for us.” trying to tell the GS drones that populate the WaPost’s threads on these topics that NSA data will inevitably be used by this regime for suppressing its political opponents (if it already hasn’t been exploited)…and this will lead to violence…is like telling a Nazi bureaucrat in 1938 that Berlin is going to end up in rubble if the Fuhrer stays the course.

    It’s Bush’s fault……….

  9. Mt Top Patriot says:

    The scandal is there are too many scandals.
    This is all a smoke screen for something far worse than of these acts of tyranny.
    Something absolutely critical to the coupe under way, something that has to happen no matter the consequences of exposing these myriad high crimes.
    Nothing happens in the Banana Republic of Amerika without the ruling oligarchy permission.

    Something really big is going down.

    I think we are going to find out after it is too late.

    • Advo says:

      I yhear you. People seem to be forgetting that the IRS scandal was tipped by the administration itself. That’s the scandal they want us focusing on. What don’t they want attention on?

      The article fails to mention AG Holder replying to a question in a congressional hearing if Justice was illegally monitoring Congress with a “This isn’t the time or place for that discussion.”

    • Big Country says:

      hmmmn valid point “Ignore that man behind the curtain!” Thats worry-making right there… a thing of potential badness…

    • Cleburne says:

      Only if we throw in the towel will it be too late.

    The effectiveness of special prosecutors is uneven at best. They tend to wonder off the reservation, so to speak. I like the Idea of a select committee of congress to investigate, like the one for Watergate. Special prosecutors use also kills the news cycle unless the media is interested. The MSM is not interested in these scandals. You can see that with the coverage by the MSM now and what happened during Watergate. The Benghazi situation is a perfect example. We don’t even know where Obama was during the attack, but we do for the Ben Laden kill.

    So who is watching the watchers and this administration; certainly not the MSM which has not broken any of these scandals?

    The NSA data gathering was supported by the FISA court judges in a secret ruling. We are supposed trust them. Yet the DoJ lied to 3 judges before obtaining a warrant to track FNC’s James Rosen personal and professional information. Again in secret, but was exposed for what it was; a criminal corrupt act either when testifying to Congress or the information given the judges.

    So the NSA has secret programs reviewed by a secret court with secret warrants to obtain American’s personal information in secrecy. So who beyond a few congressional chairman were, maybe, watching what was happening. No one was looking at the less secret IRS abusing their power and I am expected to believe that the NSA isn’t. Heck, the NSA wanted to redefine the 4th Amendment for their purposes.

    IRS officials lied during public testimony as has Mr. Clapper, the head of our intelligence community. The President lied when he indicated “all of congress” was aware of the programs.

    I refuse to give up my freedom for security because as Ben Franklin indicated, I will have neither.

    It really is past time to burn the whole frikkin thing down.

  12. bubba says:

    The opposition has begun to eat themselves just as they always do; we need to continue letting them do just that, of course we should offer help by prodding them and pointing out all their failures. All liberty minded people need to do is sound thoughtful, reasonable and honorable and the “deep thinkers” of the citizenry will consider our position as a viable alternative to the incompetents running the government now.

    There is no group of people available who are capable enough to administer a society as complex as ours and have it run efficiently. Look how poorly our economic system is being currently run; consider what will happen in another year when the ignorant, pampered and powdered princes and princesses begin fully running health care. Remember: The bigger the government the bigger the inefficiency.

    Let’s also look at the IRS debacle in particular; it is a golden opportunity to convince people of the justness of our positions. No one likes the IRS, most people fear the IRS. Even people who pay no income taxes and those who get money back from the government despise the IRS. Think of this as the right time to remove the fangs from the tyrants.

      “Never interrupt an enemy while they are making a mistake.”

      That’s my approach here. I may nudge them along, but I’m not going to stop them from digging themselves deeper.

  13. Right_2_Bear says:

    With this many scandals are people going to be overwhelmed and just tune-out? I fear this is possible – to the Republic’s peril – and just another consequence of this wretched Obama regime.

  14. Cleburne says:

    I pray for Edward Snowden. He’s a true Americam patriot. As the father of a son Edward’s age I can only imagine the torment his family is going through, worrying for his safety and well being. How I wish I could reach out and help him!

  16. Lex says:

    Somewhere, out there there is an “Agent” reading this, logging data.

    We implore you, (my wife, offspring & I) to come over & join our side now- before it gets “hot”.

    You can do it… we welcome you.

  17. cmblake6 says:

    What Lex said. I would ask those of you that read this, where is your personal honor? What was it that your swore to support and defend “against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic”? That includes (especially!) if the government becomes enemies of the Constitution. I could go on and on with that, but I hope beyond hope that the simple fact will suffice.
