    Default The Obama scandals continue seemingly unabated.

    You have to wonder how far this Democratic ruse will go. It definitely shows the power of the main stream press. Since Obama is their chosen messiah...after all they are almost 100% leftists, there isn't ANY investigation happening into these scandals. And now that CBS has gotten to the only reporter that was honest enough to throw some light on a couple of these scandals, and assigned her elsewhere, it's being left up to a few in Congress to ferret out the corruption of this regime. Sadly, they seem to be spinning their wheels.

    Can anyone honestly refute that the uproar would be deafening if we had a Republican administration pulling these shenanigans? For the sake of your kids, this oligarchy must be halted in 2014, or there won't be an America as we knew it, for them to survive in.

    From the Daily Events conservative letter:
    The IRS scandal is still growing. House Oversight chairman Darrell Issa has begun investigating the Federal Election Commission about "the prospect of inappropriate coordination between the IRS and the FEC about tax-exempt entities."

    Key IRS scandal figure Lois Lerner used to work for the FEC, where she was the subject of complaints disturbingly similar to the abuse-of-power scandal that would consume the IRS. It's hard to escape the conclusion that she was brought over to the IRS because of her experience at using political power to crack down on enemies of the ruling party.

    She apparently still has a great working relationship with her old FEC colleagues, because when they made an inappropriate - in fact, illegal - request for confidential IRS data about a conservative group, Lerner responded in nine minutes flat.

    We've also learned that the IRS persecution of Tea Party groups never actually stopped. Three months into a scandal that calls the legitimacy of the 2012 election, and of the federal government itself, into serious question, IRS agents are still following the old protocols. They were officially rescinded, according to testimony from the new IRS commissioner to Congress... but new procedures were never put into place, so the agents of the Tax Exempt Organization division are still subjecting conservative groups to extra scrutiny. That's not the fault of the low-level IRS employees... but then again, none of this ever was, contrary to the Administration's frantic damage-control efforts.

    While I'm no big fan of Snowden, what has been revealed is a corrupt regime any way you perceive it. All these Obama bureaucrats are just simply desciples of the Obama oligarchy. They are either as left as he is, or moreso. They all believe their agenda will be pleasing to their messiah, regardless of how corrupt it becomes. Democrats, RINOs, socialists, leftists, liberals, fascists, are all tromping on this nations Constitution as frequently as they can, just to advance their un-American agenda. It is beginning to look hopeless.

    The Obama Administration’s War on the Constitution

    By: streiff (Diary) |



    The more we learn about the antics of our national intelligence apparatus the more we are left with the image of a bunch of smart guys operating with no sense of boundaries or propriety. Rather than being servants to and guardians of the the people they have striven to become our masters.

    When Edward Snowden alleged that he, as a low level IT technician, could access communications by virtually anyone simply by asking there was a howling from the general direction of Fort Meade, MD that this was not true. Because FISA Courts. Because The Constitution. Subsequent reporting by Glenn Greenwald (or one of his sock puppets. it is really hard to tell… ) indicates that Snowden was more right than wrong.

    When the NSA’s deputy director, Chris Inglis, testified on July 17, he revealed that the NSA surveillance program not only extends to potential terrorists but extends to three degrees of separation. This means that as many of 2.5 million persons, Americans and foreign, become subject to surveillance based on any suspect conversation.
    For a sense of scale, researchers at the University of Milan found in 2011 that everyone on the Internet was, on average, 4.74 steps away from anyone else. The NSA explores relationships up to three of those steps. (See our conversation with the ACLU’s Alex Abdo on this.)
    Now the information develop from this system seems to have bled into regular law enforcement activities.
    Reuters on Monday detailed how the Special Operative Division – a unit within the DEA comprising representatives of two dozen agencies including the FBI, CIA, NSA, Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Homeland Security – passes tips from wiretaps, informants and a database of telephone records to field agents to investigate and arrest criminals. Reuters reports that, although such cases rarely involve national security issues, the DEA agents using the tips are trained to “recreate” the source of the criminal investigation to conceal its true origin from defence lawyers, prosecutors and judges.
    This is how the system works.
    One former federal agent who received tips from the SOD described the process to Reuters. He told how he would instruct state police to find an excuse to stop a certain vehicle on which they had information, and then have drug dogs search it. After an arrest was made, agents would then pretend that the investigation began as a result of the traffic stop, and not because of the information the SOD had passed on.
    A training document quoted by Reuters described the practice whereby agents would “recreate” the source of the investigation, as “parallel construction”. A dozen current or former federal agents interviewed by Reuters confirmed they had relied on parallel construction.
    What “parallel construction” does is create a system where information obtained via an illegal fishing expedition is sanitized to allow for an arrest. Because neither the judge signing the search warrant nor the officers making the arrest know the source of the information it is impossible for a defendant to challenge the evidence that led to their arrest.


    This, quite simply, is the beginning of a police state. This, unlike terrorism, is an existential threat to the very existence of the republic and it must stop if we are not to end up serfs rather than citizens.

    I am with you. I guess the latest is that (A) the oppression of the Tea-Party groups has not abated in the least. And (B) the perpetrator bureaucrats have been promoted. I am here to tell you that NOTHING will stop this administration unless or until there is a select committee established in the House and a Special Prosecutor empowered to begin issuing subpoenas.

    Our pansy Republicans don't want to rock the boat. They just want to hold hearings so they can preen in front of the cameras.

    Not sure if this one actually belongs here, since it's been going on for 13 years! to the tune of $886,000. If this occurred in just one division of the EPA, what might be uncovered if every agency of Fed govt were throroughly reviewed? What does it take for us to realize that the govt is just too large when about $70K a year can just get blown off as a bonus, and nobody even notices?

    A former high-ranking official with the Environmental Protection Agency was charged Friday with stealing nearly $900,000 from the agency over 13 years.



    John C. Beale, a former deputy assistant administrator in the Office of Air and Radiation, is accused of stealing a total of $886,186 between 2000 and April of this year.
