Obama Obstruction of Justice

We all know that Liberals hide behind “All presidents do that” when a Democrat breaks the law or otherwise violates his oath of office in very grave ways.

We also know that not all presidents commit perjury while testifying in Federal court (Clinton), for example, and that this excuse insults all who utter it.

Luckily there are those moments when a crime is so obvious that Liberals cannot so easily gloss over it.

The IRS filing in federal Judge Emmet Sullivan’s court reveals shocking new information. The IRS destroyed Lerner’s Blackberry AFTER it knew her computer had crashed and after a Congressional inquiry was well underway. As an IRS official declared under the penalty of perjury, the destroyed Blackberry would have contained the same emails (both sent and received) as Lois Lerner’s hard drive. <New York Observer, link>

This is clearly obstruction of justice, a criminal offense, and one that should be prosecuted.

 

An interview with Cornell West was published today in Salon.com, and it is a barn-burner of rhetorical demolition of Barack Hussein Obama and his fraudulent presidency.

It is called “Cornel West: “He posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency”” <link>.

Cornel West

I am going to excerpt it across several posts, because some of the quotes are so juicy they deserve their own billboards.

Here is just one excerpt to start things off:

The interviewer, Thomas Frank, makes this statement: 

The rule of law, oh my God. There’s one law for us and another law if you work on Wall Street.

To which West responds:

That’s exactly right. Even with [Attorney General] Eric Holder. Eric Holder won’t touch the Wall Street executives; they’re his friends. He might charge them some money. They want to celebrate. This money is just a tax write-off for these people. There’s no accountability. No answerability. No responsibility that these people have to take at all. The same is true with the Robert Rubin crowd. Obama comes in, he’s got all this populist rhetoric which is wonderful, progressive populist rhetoric which we needed badly. What does he do, goes straight to the Robert Rubin crowd and here comes Larry Summers, here comes Tim Geithner, we can go on and on and on, and he allows them to run things. You see it in the Suskind book, The Confidence Men. These guys are running things, and these are neoliberal, deregulating free marketeers—and poverty is not even an afterthought for them.

KABOOM.

This is what we’ve been saying since 2009: Barack Obama not only failed to go after Wall Street crooks, but he used tax payer money to keep their bonuses flowing in every single year after the global financial crash of 2008. Not only that, he used the financial crash as cover to ruthlessly centralize American health care in a way that has already destroyed our beautiful system and promises to impoverish the middle class and enslave all of us to a politburo of 15 men appointed by the president.

Mr. West and other Liberals now feel as though they “got played” by Obama, and to this I can only say: we told you so.

 

This president, Barack Hussein Obama, has a strong connection to the word “illegal”, and a bipartisan group just confirmed again what we all knew, which is that Obama’s prisoner swap of the Taliban dream team — five senior commanders — for the traitor Bowe Bergdahl was illegal.

The Pentagon broke the law when it swapped Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban leaders, congressional investigators said Thursday. The nonpartisan Government Accountability Office said the Defense Department failed to notify the relevant congressional committees at least 30 days in advance of the exchange — a violation of the law — and used $988,400 of a wartime account to make the transfer. The Government Accountability Office also said the Pentagon’s use of funds that had not been expressly appropriated violated the Antideficiency Act. Five senior Taliban members were released from the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, in exchange for Sergeant Bergdahl, who disappeared from his post in Afghanistan in June 2009. <New York Times, link> <emphasis added>

Perhaps mr. Obama should change his middle name to “Illegal”, as in “Barack Illegal Obama”, given the long list of willful law breaking he has committed, including repeated re-writing of the ACA healthcare law, refusal to enforce existing immigration laws, and refusal to answer congressional subpoenas. (But then, I’ll bet Barry is happy to keep the middle name “Hussein”, don’t you think?)

NatGeo MedievalI was reading National Geographic this weekend (“Inside the Medieval World”) and found a beautiful description of the Magna Carta, that great foundational document of the anglo-saxon tradition of the Rule of Law.

Here are some excerpts from the copy:

“King John lost England’s French holdings after a series of unwise political moves.  In an attempt to wage war and reclaim the lands, he bore down on his subjects, collecting exorbitant taxes.  His frustrated barons rebelled in 1214 under the organization of Stephen Langton, the Archbishop of Canterbury, who proposed that they present their demands to the king in a “great charter.”

The nobles drew up a list of grievances that formed a contract between the king and the nobility, guaranteeing the latter certain customary feudal rights…King John’s initial refusal to sign didn’t last long, due to the nobles’ threatening 2,000-knight army.

On June 15, 1215, King John signed and put his seal on the Magna Carta–marking the end of absolute monarchy.”

Note the prelude to this historic document of liberty: exactly 800 years ago, an unchecked central power was “bearing down” on “subjects” through “exorbitant taxation” to make up for its pushing the nation towards bankruptcy. Sound familiar?

And now, the key next sentence:

“It limited the ruler’s power to the written laws of the land and set a precedent for representative government.”

Isn’t it obvious that Barack Obama’s repeated circumvention of our nation’s laws, including the very Constitution itself, puts him squarely on the side of kings and against us all — the 99%?

Despotic regimes - Obama and King John 800 years apart

But lately we also see our institutions pushing back against this man and his destructive intentions and actions.

Regarding the Obama Justice department’s refusal to turn over documents relating to Obama’s gun-walking of 2,000 assault weapons into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, this ruling just came down:

A federal judge has ordered the Justice Department to provide Congress with a list of documents that are at the center of a long-running battle over a failed law enforcement program called Operation Fast and Furious. <Fox News, link>

This ruling, although limited to providing a list rather than the documents themselves, is important in at least two ways, the first being its obvious check on Obama’s abusive and obfuscatory executive branch.  And the second way is juicy indeed: so often, the rulings of judges are themselves political in nature, and one wonders if our collective political lives are never able to transcend party affiliation, but in this case, we have cause for great joy:

Jackson, the judge in the current case, is an appointee of President Barack Obama.

Congressman Darrell Issa, Chairman of the Congressional Oversight Panel, had this to say about the ruling <Politico, link>:

This administration has been so intent on hiding the contents of these documents that it allowed Attorney General Holder to be held in contempt instead of just turning them over to Congress. The privilege log will bring us closer to finding out why the Justice Department hid behind false denials in the wake of reckless conduct that contributed to the violent deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and countless Mexican citizens.

And let’s not forget the House of Representatives lawsuit against Barack Obama in which the defendant stands accused in a very formal way of repeatedly breaking the laws of the land.

Unlike mr. Obama, who violates his oath of office on a near-daily basis, Congressmen and women and several federal judges are upholding their oaths of office by attempting to reign in this heinous and damaging executive regime.

Their actions are in the true spirit of the Magna Carta, and of the United States of America, in which no man is above the law.

Former Florida Rep. and retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel Allen West just wrote the following on his blog on Wednesday <Yahoo News, link>:

The only plausible explanation for many actions taken by President Obama and his administration is that they are working counter to the security of the United States of America.

Among six example he gives to back up his point is Obama’s decision to release of five Taliban in exchange for Sgt. Bergdahl in May, providing weapons of support to the Egyptian government led by the Muslim Brotherhood, and negotiating with Hamas.

He also writes at length about Obama’s recent decision to lift a ban on Libyan’s attending U.S. flight schools and studying nuclear science, which had been in place since 1983.

Can anyone explain what the strategy and objective is here in lifting this ban with a nation that is or should be on the terrorist watch list? Sorry, but I can only explain this one way: Barack Hussein Obama is an Islamist in his foreign policy perspectives and supports their cause.

The pivot away from the Middle East seems to be nothing more than an opportunity to enable Islamists and their goals. Anyone supporting this Libyan ban being lifted is indeed an enemy of this state.

What a train wreck, this Obamacare monstrosity…

The number of Obamacare enrollments for top health insurer Aetna is plummeting, according to a report from Investor’s Business Daily.

Aetna’s enrollment reached 720,000 by May 20, after the final end to the the extended open enrollment period. But by the end of June Aetna had less than 600,000 paying customers, IBD reports, and the company expects paying customers to fall to “just over 500,000″ by the end of 2015. That would be a drop of just under 30 percent from the May sign-up numbers — the last time the Obama administration released its official Obamacare enrollment tally. <The Daily Caller, link>

I and all my friends and colleagues are astounded that Ebola patients are being brought from Africa into the United States for treatment. Whoever made the decision to do so should have his or her head examined.

But this morning National Security Adviser Susan Rice assured the nation that there is nothing to worry about:

The second American who contracted Ebola while in Liberia, Nancy Writebol of North Carolina, is expected to arrive in Atlanta today to receive treatment at Emory University Hospital. Rice says there’s a low risk of the deadly virus spreading in America. <WIBC, link>

The risk to Americans is deemed by the Centers for Disease Control to be very low… This is not a disease that can be communicated by sneezing or airborne or food or water.

Wow, I feel so much better now that a high-ranking serial liar within the Obama administration has issued this reassurance, don’t you?

Never mind that Susan Rice also made the following comments about other matters of national security.

On the Obama prisoner swap of the Taliban “dream team” (5 senior military commanders) for Bowe Bergdahl, a known deserter and anti-American man (yes, he wrote to his parents that “The horror that is America is disgusting” <link>) — actual Susan Rice quote on an ABC News appearance:

Rice Bergdhal

Source: an ABC News appearance on 6/1/14 with George Stephanopoulos <link>

Rice’s comment on Bergdahl despite his obvious acts of dishonor while on the field of battle show just how untrustworthy her words are.

And then there is her legendary Benghazi lie:

Susan Rice actual quote (WSJ Blog, link):

The information, the best information and the best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. That what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in Cairo as a consequence of the video.

People of all political stripes condemned this obvious lie, especially when it became clear that she was instructed by the Obama administration to say such lies.

New White House emails made public Tuesday by conservative Judicial Watch further support that the Obama team wanted then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to stress that a video disparaging the Prophet Muhammad was the catalyst for a series of anti-American protests across the Islamic world, including the deadly attacks on the Benghazi mission in September 2012.

In an e-mail with the subject line: “PREP CALL with Susan,” deputy national security adviser for strategic communications Ben Rhodes wrote that one of the goals before Rice went on the Sunday news shows after the killing of four Americans  was to “underscore these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.” <The Washington Post, link>

And so when she opens her mouth now about anything, whether important or unimportant, rational listeners can only conclude one thing: that she is lying, and cannot be trusted.

It reminds one of the president, does it not?

 

 

From the Huffington Post:

 WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama made a major political mistake by lying about the details of his health care plan, according to former House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.). <link>
The rollout was so bad, and I was appalled — I don’t understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis. But frankly, he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn’t true. And you shouldn’t lie to people. And they just lied to people.
And don’t forget that Barney Frank has been having second thoughts about more than just Barack Hussein Obama’s lies: he regrets that he supported the Obamacare creation of an Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), one the most fascist elements of the Obamacare monstrosity. I wrote about this here and here.
