With mr. Obama’s first term finished and his second term in full (golf) swing, one might have believed that his attorney general of Fast & Furious fame would have moved on from the administration, as Hillary Clinton has done (and many other cabinet members).
He is still doing Barack Obama’s bidding, and oh what bidding that is, with the latest abuse of power being the Associate Press scandal in which the Justice Department secretly subpoenaed the private phone records of member of the press. Remember the Liberal cries of fascism about George Bush? Barack Obama is the cold reality of what they feared, and they hardly know it — though the AP scandal just might bring them around given that it hits them right at home (in the bowels of the Liberal media itself).
And when American citizens cry foul towards Barack Obama and his regime, including the IRS in a separate scandal and now the Justice Department? There is a reason the current AG still has a job:
But the administration is unapologetic — claiming the records were seized only as a last resort, in an investigation vital to national security…<source>
Reminds us of Fast & Furious and a murdered border agent, doesn’t it?
At least one U.S. Senator has the courage to speak out about the Attorney General:
The American people have lost faith in U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., and he must be replaced, a top GOP senator said Sunday.
“I lost confidence in the attorney general a long time ago over his cover-up of the Fast and Furious investigation,” said Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican, referencing Mr. Holder’s role in the infamous gunrunning scheme that went awry and cost the life of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.
Calls for Mr. Holder’s ouster have grown louder since it was revealed the Justice Department gathered telephone records for at least 20 Associated Press editors and reporters in an attempt to find the source of a supposed national security leak.
Those two scandals, Mr. Cornyn said, make clear that Mr. Holder must be dismissed.
“I think it’s past time for him to go and for the president to appoint somebody who the public can have confidence in,” he said. <source>
You don’t say?
Americans have become the quintessential frogs in a pot of water that is on its way to boiling, and the notion of leaping out of the pot failed to take hold in the 2012 election.
Fascists don’t just strangle the throat of a free people in one grab: they do it bit by bit.
- The Independent Payment Advisory Board under Obamacare
- Mandated purchasing of a consumer product (health insurance) under Obamacare
- IRS targeting of Republican groups
- Justice Department targeting of the free press
- Intimidation of John Roberts
Has the time to jump come and gone?
No, not quite yet, and Americans owe it to our proud heritage to reject tyranny once again and bring those responsible to justice, and right quick.
