It’s About Time And It’s About Crime

Some of America’s citizens will say it is very much past time to tie Obama’s errant ways in knots before he has time to completely ruin this county through illegal means. You can follow most of what he has done in the way of shady evasions of custom and laws by perusing the article below.

GOP Begins To Fight Back Against Obama’s Broad Executive Overreach

Has President Obama’s impunity come to an end?

After five years of his flouting the letter and spirit of the law in an increasingly brazen fashion, congressional Republicans have been starting to ramp up their rhetoric about Obama’s lawlessness, their most concerted effort on the issue to date.

Several new reports from top Republicans underscore the breadth of Obama’s executive overreach. Viewed comprehensively, it involves laws ranging from healthcare to immigration to privacy to technology to social issues to national security matters and more. Scandals like Benghazi, Operation Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting of conservative groups, NSA spying, CIA spying on Congress, the Delphi pensions scandal, the auto bailout and others have many unresolved questions – and unmet document and information demands.

Last week, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor re-released his 33-page October 2012 report detailing 40 separate examples of “the break-down in the rule of law under the Obama Administration.” This time, Cantor added a nine-page addendum with scores more examples of lawlessness of the administration.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has also issued a three-part series of reports on the matter called “The Legal Limit,” which totals 26 pages of examples of Obama’s lawlessness, legal analysis and details of how courts have rejected the Department of Justice (DOJ) explanations from Attorney General Eric Holder for the Obama power grabs. In his first report, for instance, Cruz details nine cases the DOJ lost in which the Obama administration was seeking—but ultimately failed to achieve—more power.

“If the Department of Justice had won these cases, the federal government would be able to electronically track all of our movements, fine us without a fair hearing, dictate who churches choose as ministers, displace state laws based on the President’s whims, bring debilitating lawsuits against individuals based on events that occurred years ago, and destroy a person’s private property without just compensation,” Cruz wrote about them.

A major focus of Cantor’s report is on the administration’s rewriting of Obamacare. With regard to the president’s signature legislation, Cantor writes that the administration “has engaged in a series of ad-hoc announcements that ignore statutory deadlines, waive unwaivable provisions of the law, and even create benefits not authorized in law.”

In 2013 and 2014 alone, Cantor’s report addendum lists 18 examples in which the administration has violated Obamacare as written and passed by Congress.

Obamacare is hardly the only law, however, with which the Obama administration is testing its executive powers. Another area of public policy the administration has heavily leaned on executive authority is with regard to immigration policy.

In Cantor’s original 2012 report, he cited one of the clearest examples of Obama’s executive power grab on immigration: when the president in summer 2012, in a Rose Garden speech alongside then Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, used executive authority to create the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program which granted executive amnesty to illegal aliens who say they were minors when they entered the country. Cantor also cited the so-called “Morton memos,” that were written in 2011 by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director John Morton and established the administration’s use of “prosecutorial discretion” to allow illegal aliens to remain in the United States.

“While the use of prosecutorial discretion is not new, there is a significant difference between its previous narrow application and the establishment of a formal process to systematically, on an ongoing basis, block illegal aliens from being placed into removal proceedings, stop already-initiated removal proceedings, and end deportations for potentially large numbers of criminal aliens,” Cantor wrote about the Morton memos.

Blood On Their Hands — Scat On Their Brains

There is nothing; absolutely nothing, more despicable than individuals attempting to claim transparency and truth when their records show they are as slick as an octopus escape artist .

Whether the deception deals with Fast and Furious, Benghazi or improper IRS targeting they can’t hide all of the lies by themselves.  They have to have a willing and compliant cache of media types to aid their escape from responsibility.  Since most of the media deceivers are well-practiced Obama, Holder and Hillary just happen to have their cadres of media allies.

Scat On Their Brains

Two Years Ago Yesterday (12-14-2010)

Yesterday, 27 people were killed by an apparently deranged man, and yesterday two years ago, Brian Terry, a man who never stopped serving his country and fellow citizens … first as a United States Marine, next as a police officer in his hometown and finally as a United States Border Patrol Agent, was shot due to the actions of deranged members of the United States Attorney General’s office and a sizable number of federal enforcement officers. Agent Terry died two years ago today from the effects of his wounds.

While we cannot lay the actual slaying of Agent Terry on the US Attorney’s staff or members of a particular federal law enforcement agency under his jurisdiction, we can say their dereliction of duty and their stupid plots to interdict members of the Mexican drug cartel, put the weapon or weapons used to slay Agent Terry, squarely into the hands of the Mexican murderers.

We may never know with any exactitude, why the murderer in Connecticut started and completed such harm to his victims, their families and this nation; but we can say without a doubt, our government’s actions were driven by the desire to begin a journey which would eventually lead to some twisted proof for the severe control of firearms in this nation.

As is always the case, people are left with memories and grief for their losses and in the case of Agent Brian Terry, the man most complicit in the destruction of a hero, has never accepted responsibility, issued a personal apology or apologized for his employees’ actions.

From The Results Of His Government’s Actions

Tsk, Tsk, Mr. Holder

It seems Holder has difficulty separating truth from fiction and odds are that he won’t give the truth to us in favor of providing fiction.  Now he seems to have partnered with POTUS to run up their idea of “executive privilege,”  for the president’s previous assertion of “no knowledge,” of Fast and Furious.  Eels keep slithering from the buckets, but  Obama and Holder keep returning them in “fast and furious,” ways (no pun intended).

Second retraction of Fast and Furious Assertions


To:    Reporters and Editors
Re:    Second retraction of Fast and Furious Assertions
Da:    Wednesday, June 20, 2012

The Justice Department has retracted a second statement made to the Senate Judiciary Committee.  During a hearing last week, Attorney General Eric Holder claimed that his predecessor, then-Attorney General Michael Mukasey, had been briefed about gunwalking in Operation Wide Receiver.  Now, the Department is retracting that statement and claiming Holder “inadvertently” made that claim to the Committee.  The Department’s letter failed to apologize to former Attorney General Mukasey for the false accusation.  This is the second major retraction the Justice Department has made in the last seven months.  In December 2011, the Department retracted its claim that the ATF had not allowed illegally purchased guns to be trafficked to Mexico.  Sen. Chuck Grassley’s letter and the Department’s response can be viewed here.

In addition, the Justice Department released only one page of additional material prior to the Attorney General’s meeting on Capitol Hill on Tuesday.  It is a page of handwritten notes by a public affairs specialist for the Deputy Attorney General, which the Department says it “just recently discovered.”  The notes indicate that when Deputy Assistant Attorney General Jason Weinstein met with senior ATF officials on April 28, 2010, regarding the problem of gunwalking in Wide Receiver, the Deputy Attorney General’s public affairs specialist also attended the meeting. These notes can be viewed here.

The notes indicate that Fast and Furious was also a topic discussed at the meeting, in addition to Wide Receiver.  These notes further corroborate contemporaneous emails in 2010 that show Criminal Division Chief Lanny Breuer and Weinstein seemed to have been more concerned about the press implications of gunwalking than they were about making sure ATF ended the practice. (These emails can be viewed here.)  The notes also undermine the claim that senior DOJ officials failed to “make the connection” between the gunwalking in Wide Receiver—which Breuer admitted to knowing about—and gunwalking in Fast and Furious.  In fact, both cases were discussed by senior Department leadership and senior ATF leadership.

Grassley made the following comment on these developments.

“This is the second time in nearly seven months that the Department has gotten its facts wrong about gunwalking.  Attorney General Holder accused Attorney General Mukasey, without producing any evidence, of having been briefed on gunwalking in Wide Receiver.  The case Attorney General Mukasey was briefed on, Hernandez, is fundamentally different from both Wide Receiver and Fast and Furious since it involved cooperation with the Mexican government. Attorney General Holder’s retraction should have included an apology to the former Attorney General.

“In his eagerness to blame the previous administration, Attorney General Holder got his facts wrong.  And his tactic didn’t bring us any closer to understanding how a bad policy evolved and continued.  Bad policy is bad policy, regardless of how many administrations carried it out.  Ironically, the only document produced yesterday by the Department appears to show that senior officials in the Attorney General’s own Department were strategizing about how to keep gunwalking in both Wide Receiver and Fast and Furious under wraps.”
