So the cats are out of the bag. Obama's scandals are becoming exposed. Where do we go from here?
In short, don't let him get away with it and demand more answers! Freedom loving Americans are at risk from the “Let's tone it down” and “Give the President the benefit of the doubt” type RINOs who would gladly appease the Left for their own benefit. Their rhetoric would allow for what is called plausible deniability. This is just another phrase that means there is enough chaos and confusion to give a lie a chance to work.
Political reality is another thing altogether. We have all the evidence we need to accept the premise that Barack Obama created the culture that lead to the behaviors that brought forth the scandals. His words and actions are therefore to blame for the collective totality of his government and its actions. It was Barack Obama who commanded his followers in his own words “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us...” (http://hotair.com/archives/2010/10/25/obamas-turnout-pitch-to-latinos-get-out-there-and-punish-your-enemies/) He also supported the more vengeful nature of his chief adviser Valarie Jarrett who said, “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.” http://theulstermanreport.com/2012/11/01/valerie-jarret-after-we-win-this-election-its-our-turn-payback-time-wsi/ It becomes abundantly clear how having the likes of Valarie Jarrett, Rohm Emmanuel and David Axelrod pulling strings in a government would lead to the abuses that emerged from the IRS and the EPA. One could easily say to the president, “You built that!”
It was also Barack Obama whom we know promoted the “It was a video” instead of a terror plot story regarding the Benghazi tragedy weeks after it was known otherwise. Because he refuses to disclose what leadership he practiced that night, we are fully justified in concluding there was none.
It was Barack Obama who regularly snubbed Israel. The leaks regarding that country came at times most beneficial for Obama's political ratings or at times a distraction from other issues was needed. The nation of Israel has come to the same conclusion. It is now policy that when Israel defends itself, it will no longer inform the United States in advance. Barack Obama is clearly an influence upon the ease of leaks and thus the new strain in US-Israeli relations.
It was clearly Barack Obama's move to cover for Eric Holder despite being in contempt of Congress over the Fast and Furious scandal. Nothing was ever said about the mysterious dropping of the case of voter intimidation by The New Black Panthers by the Attorney General. The behavior was repeated when the President again supported Holder despite the clearly misleading (perhaps perjured) statements made regarding the justice Department's spy ring aimed at journalists. Obama has been known to bully journalists whom he was displeased with in the past as well. Again, he created that culture.
The greatest mistake at this time would be to appease the Left and go along with their plans to crisis manage these issues away. Americans who want to fight for freedom must drop all the PC language and state the obvious conclusion:
The IRS took orders from Barack Obama. Lois Lerner was promoted during her time there for a job well-done. Even if his orders were not direct, and therefore plausibly deniable, the culture created an indirect set of priorities that led to the abuse of people clearly known to occupy the President's enemies list.
Barack Obama is clearly backing the moves made by Eric Holder. He has never demanded that his Attorney General fully cooperate with Congress. After condemning the way reporters were infringed upon, Obama has had nothing to say about Holder seeking the warrants.
Barack Obama uses executive orders to get his way. However, upon hearing of the scandals he has not used this power to restore American's privacy and equal justice in dealing with the Federal Government. He clearly wants to let this situation blow over and allow the powers of a huge and intrusive federal government to continue for his purposes.
There is no evidence of effective leadership from the President on the night of 9/11/12 when our people in Benghazi where under attack. There is evidence that decisions COULD have been made to save lives that night. Nothing was done. Americans can compare this lack of decisiveness to the many days Barack Obama took to step-up during the Gulf Oil Spill disaster early in his first term. Americans must accept that the efforts to shift blame have failed. We must also continue to demand all the answers that have been withheld. We also know there were 30 survivors who have not been made available. America has a right to hear from them, no excuses any more.
It cannot be stressed enough, we cannot allow the castrated cuddle-bugs in the GOP to place nice with the not so nice Left. If we do, justice will not be done. However, if united, we continue to stand, maybe there will be a more responsive Congress and less dangerous IRS.
