Obama’s Watergate

Posted by Troy on 20th June 2012 in Current Events, Political

Obama is exerting Executive Privilege on the Fast and the Furious.  So this leads to a few options:

1) There is soooo nothing there.  This would be a Machiavellian scheme whereby Obama convinces the Republicans that there is something there, but there really isn’t, but they don’t know that, so they keep searching, and they look like total idiots when it turns out that there is nothing really there.

Analysis from Swamp Fox?  He ain’t that slick.  Honestly, I’d feel better if he WAS that slick, but he’s not.

2)  Eric Holder was lying when he said that Obama didn’t know anything about Fast and the furious.

Analysis:  Executive Privilege only applies to direct communications with the President.  Eric Holder said that he did not talk about Fast and Furious with the President.  If he lied under oath, that means that Eric Holder is guilty of perjury.  Eric Holder has effectively hung himself.

3)  Eric Holder was telling the truth.

Analysis:  Executive Privilege does not apply.  As I said, it only works with direct communications with the President.  As such, Holder is screwed either way.

Watergate started off as a break-in to a hotel wherein Nixon’s agents stole information relating to the Democrat’s election strategies.  If Nixon had let his underlings take the fall, he would have walked away unscathed.  Where he went wrong is that he tried to cover for his underlings and became further and further embroiled in the issue.  Amazingly, Obama has failed to learn from history.  What he should have done is told Holder to step down or take the fall for him.  When he wins his second term or before he leaves office, he would pardon Holder, but that will not happen now.  Now Obama has stuck himself in the trap, the same as Nixon did.  Obama has called full attention to a story that the mainstream media had largely ignored.  There is no way that this ends well for him (unless option 1 turns out to be true).

Fast and Furious is way more important than Watergate.  However, this will not end in the same way as it did for Nixon for two reasons.  The first is that the media loves Obama and has bent over backwards to protect him since the 2008 election.  The second is that the Democrats control the Senate.  As long as that happens, Obama cannot be impeached.  He has used the Constitution as toilet paper since day one, but the Democrats will never call him out on it.  But it can destroy his bid for re-election.

Long Live the Constitution!

Eric Holder will Resign

Posted by Troy on 18th June 2012 in Current Events

I have been predicting that Eric Holder will resign, and I will keep saying this as well.  I know that he is trying to hold on until the elections (one way or another) in order not to hurt Obama’s campaign, but I believe that outrage will continue to grow.  Eventually, not even the mainstream media can continue to ignore the scandal.  Now 17,000 border control agents have grouped together to call for his resignation.  I think that he is going to buckle soon.  The amount of stress he must be feeling is incredible.  It would be hard enough if he was telling the truth, but keeping a lie of this magnitude going when it is clear everyone knows you’re lying must be unbearable.  I don’t think he can survive for five more months.

Fast and Furious

As I predicted, so it has come to pass.  Eric Holder will have to step down as Attorney General.  If he doesn’t, they will keep digging, and there can be only one answer:  The Feds let the guns walk to paint a narrative that private gun sales are leading to guns in the hands of criminals.  This would dovetail into the UN plan for a small arms bill, and would clamp down on private gun ownership.  However, they made one fatal mistake: they put the operation in the hands of the single most incompetent administration in the history of the country.  Seriously, they couldn’t get even this to work?  Of course, if they had, they would have told us the majority of Americans are in favor of the bill/treaty/ban, and in reality, the majority of Americans could care less.  Seriously, would anyone give up their freedoms because of something happening in any other country?  If so, they’re idiots and shouldn’t have a say anyway.

Long Live the Constitution!
