In the past few months – to a year – We’ve had a dozen “scandals” coming out of Washington. Here’s a list of them that have been compiled by various sources.
Benghazi (Four Americans killed by Terrorists and the Government pretended it was over a movie)
GSA (remember Hot Tub man? The General Services Administration in 2010 held an $823,000 training conference in Las Vegas, featuring a clown and a mind readers. Resulted in the resignation of the GSA administrator.)
IRS (Targeting Tea Party members and organizations, the IRS enjoyed outrageous conventions that included “line dancing” video, luxury suites ($3,500))
NSA (Spying on America, snooping on “We the People” instead of terrorists)
FBI (doesn’t know who is investigating the IRS)
EPA (gave names, addresses and email addresses of farmers to liberal groups)
Justice Department (Watching the AP and other news agencies
Justice Department and Rosengate – JD suggested that Fox News reporter James Rosen is a criminal for reporting about classified information and subsequently monitored his phones and emails.
Eric Holder (Perjury)
ATF (Fast and Furious, project Gun Walker, the ATF allowed weapons from the U.S. to “walk” across the border into the hands of Mexican drug dealers. The ATF lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which were used in crimes, including the December 2010 killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.)
EPA (Former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson used the name “Richard Windsor” when corresponding by email with other government officials, drawing charges she was trying to evade scrutiny.)
Black Panthers (The Justice Department was accused of using a racial double standard in failing to pursue a voter intimidation case against Black Panthers who appeared to be menacing voters at a polling place in 2008 in Philadelphia.)
HHS (HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius solicited donations from companies HHS might regulate. The money would be used to help her sign up uninsured Americans for ObamaCare.)
HHS (Also, Sebelius violated the Hatch Act: A U.S. special counsel has determined that Sebelius violated the Hatch Act when she made “extemporaneous partisan remarks” during a speech in her official capacity last year. During the remarks, Sebelius called for the election of the Democratic candidate for governor of North Carolina.)
Solyndra: Republicans charged the Obama administration funded and promoted its poster boy for green energy despite warning signs the company was headed for bankruptcy. The administration also allegedly pressed Solyndra to delay layoff announcements until after the 2010 midterm elections.
Obama (“I’ll pass my own laws”…making end runs around Congress on everything from Global Warming to Gun Control)
Obama most likely violated the law of the land, the Constitution and the spirit of the War Powers Resolution by attacking Libya without Congressional approval.
Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel used Bill Clinton as an intermediary to probe whether former Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) would accept a prominent, unpaid White House advisory position in exchange for dropping out of the 2010 primary against former Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.).
The administration paid millions to the former firm of then-White House adviser David Axelrod, AKPD Message and Media, to promote passage of Obamacare. Some questioned whether the firm was hired to help pay Axelrod $2 million AKPD owed him.
Vice President Biden’s office has repeatedly interfered with coverage, including forcing a reporter to wait in a closet, making a reporter delete photos, and editing pool reports.
The Pigford Scandal — An Agriculture Department effort that started as an attempt to compensate black farmers who had been discriminated against by the agency but evolved into a gravy train delivering several billion dollars in cash to thousands of additional minority and female farmers who probably didn’t face discrimination.
Anti-Gun forces including Congress people all the way up to the President and down to Mayor’s of cities have acted to destroy the Second Amendment.
Other forces are acting to destroy our First, Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights – among others. In fact there appears to be a concerted effort on the part of many of these former hippies to completely destroy the Constitution; they try hard to make us believe it is a “Living Document” to be changed at the whim of a loud mouthed minority, or a simple majority.
Throughout all of this it appears many Americans have held their tongues and resisted the urge to “get mad”, worse, many are as clueless today about most of these scandals as they day they were born naked into this world.
In my past “life” I helped run a forum and web site that was concerned with things like UFOs, Bigfoot, Conspiracies and similar things. In my ten years on that site I was the “Target” of many of the posters because I tended to rip apart their ideas as nonsense and would factually back up my arguments against their “supposed facts”. It isn’t difficult to take apart Conspiracy Theory when there are indeed facts to back up your own side and the Conspiracy Theory is based solely upon “feels”, “belief”, disconnected and interconnected true facts that are actually unrelated by anything other than “that sounds like [it should go there] in the puzzle”.
So for me to read my own list above and then grasp that this country is headed down a path it is being DIRECTED down is hard for me to say, or even believe myself. As a Patriot (A real one, one who has fought in battle, one who spent many years in the military, one who has taken his oath of office to the military to protect and defend the Constitution SERIOUSLY, one who has studied American History, lived through and “fought in” the Cold War and was raised by a Father and Mother who were both Democrats to “Do the Right Thing”) it is very difficult for me to come to the conclusions I have finally reached in my 50+ years of life.
As you can see, I am about as anti-conspiracy theory as one can be. But in this case, given this administration, and reading the rotten and terrible things that are going on in the scandals coming out of DC, I can’t help but SEE some Conspiracies in action here.
The Federal Reserve banking system has been manipulating the market for years. Why? To keep the dollar “strong”? I just don’t know. I’m not an economist and hated stats, economics (micro and macro) and accounting in college. HATED it. I don’t really “grasp” it the way professors wanted me to. I DO “get it” on a personal basis and can see a short term change coming. Dunno why.
But the rest of the crap going on, the NSA, the Justice Department, the refusal of IRS leaders to correct or even admit how wrong things are is a tick mark against the current administration.
In fact, at this point I believe these agencies, directly controlled by “minions” of the current President are actively working to destroy America all at once. One, big, serious crash.
One day, the Markets will plummet, the price of houses goes up, the ability to own one goes down, the family farms are taken by the government, rural people forced to move to the cities by armed agents of the government. Food prices climb, welfare suddenly stops. Riots begin. Guns start getting confiscated by jack booted thugs.
America becomes a totalitarian state, “for your own good”.
Those who refuse to comply are shot, re-educated or “disappeared”.
The truth is, I don’t see anything “good” coming down the pike unless we reverse this trend.
I’m just one, tiny voice out here in the dark. I don’t have all the answers, but I have more questions than can be answered. I can only go with the flow and hope Americans are mostly like me and will stand up and fight if we must.
Is the United States of America doomed now to fall through no fault of the People of this country, but rather through the fault of a corrupted, screwed up, wrong-headed Government full of Progressives, Communists and Socialists? I think it is. Of course, true Americans will come together eventually to prevent this from occurring. We hope. We the People however are still “In Charge”. We’d better start acting like it, and soon.
In the mean time, I will do what I must to protect my wife and myself from total and complete destruction. My children are all adults and can make their own decisions now, but the majority of them stand with me.
