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.

Bad Week for the Obama Administration

Eric Holder has less and less wiggle room as the investigation narrows down.  With what we know now, it is clear that he either lied about what he knew about the Fast and the Furious, or he is utterly incompetent.  There’s really no other excuse.  Now they have wiretapping request that specifically spell out what was going on, and they were signed off on.  This means that they either knew about Fast and the Furious or they are just signing stuff without actually reading it.  Which one of these options do you like best?  I don’t know how Holder still has his job, honestly.

Now even Democrats are starting to get upset with Obama over all the security leaks.  It is clear that someone is leaking this information trying to make Obama look good, but it is destroying our ability to take advantage of these tactics going forward.  He bragged about Seal Team Six and how we found Osama, and now our doctor friend is in jail for 38 years.  We’ve taken credit for shutting down Iran’s computers.  I for one liked them not knowing it was us.  Then there is this stupid kill list thing, which is a grey area.  Personally, I would think his supporters would be pissed over the kill list and it will backfire, but we will see.

Long Live the Constitution!

DOJ pleads the Fifth

Ya know, this is going to be an inconsistent stance for me here…government officials, when performing their duties, should not be allowed to plead the Fifth.  I know that this is a Constitutional right, and they are still individuals entitled to it.  However, the sins committed here were by the government agency itself, not the underlings.  As far as that goes, the highest person on the totem that knew what was going on should be sent to jail, and all others should be held more or less blameless if they spill their guts.  This would be an incentive to come forward and blow the whistle.  When we allow government agencies to get away with crimes, we put everyone’s liberties at risk.

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!

Fast and Furious

Posted by Troy on 30th August 2011 in Current Events, Political

Director Melson has stepped down from his position in the Department of Justice for his part in the failed Fast and Furious operation.  Of course, he has another job waiting for him, so it’s not like it’s cost him anything.

Isn’t it interesting that about two years ago, they started to report that most of the guns used in crimes in Mexico were coming from the United States?  It’s rather coincidental that the happened to crop up shortly after Obama was elected.  It’s also interesting that the criminal element would choose to buy weapons from America at several hundred dollars a pop instead of buying a AK-47 on the black market for about $8.50 a pop (no joke there).

All of this was a coordinated effort to manufacture a crisis so that Obama could push for “common sense gun laws” or Agenda-21 or the UN’s Small Arms Treaty.  It failed miserably.  Now Melson is trying to cover for him.  This is why he is stepping down and getting another Federal job.  It’s the payoff.  If this was “for real” and Melson really was responsible, he would be fired.

Hopefully Congress will continue investigating this.  It will go all the way to the top.

Long Live the Constitution!

Gunrunner – Impeach Obama

Posted by Troy on 8th July 2011 in Current Events, Political

Why is it that no one has the guts to impeach Obama?

He has continued the war in Libya without Congressional approval in defiance of the War Powers Act.

He offered a job to a politician for not running against Arlen Specter (although Bill Clinton took the fall for him, but this lie was about as believable as Anthony Wiener for crying out loud).

It is likely that he knew or even approved Fast and Furious or is covering it up (which is what they got Richard Nixon for).

Not only this, but the countless times he has empowered our enemies, weakened the united states, attacked our every economic system, and destroyed our currency.  Why is it no one has the guts to even mention getting rid of him?  I guess we were not ready for a black President if we are too afraid of being called a racist that we would stand all of this and not say a word.  Oh well.  Better luck in 2012 I guess.
