Obama Uses Government
To Harass, Intimidate Foes

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/24/2014 8:57:41 PM

Politics: The Obama administration has turned the executive branch loose on its enemies — part of a disturbing and unprecedented trend toward delegitimizing political differences and marginalizing conservatives. Behind the special status of his presidency, President Obama has used the machinery of government to harass and intimidate political opponents — to an extent greater even than former Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, both threatened with impeachment. Consider these recent events, courtesy of the Ace of Spades blog: • Attorney General Eric Holder´s Southern District of New York office has indicted conservative author, activist and filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza — producer of the critical

We have already reached the point where the American people are alarmed and are ready to push back from intimidations and stand up to the threats in order to preserve what’s left of our Constitution. If we have anything resembling a fair election, November 2014 will see a major power swing to the right. But fair elections may no longer be available to us. If that’s true, there will be a lot of destruction in our future.

FTA: ´´To a degree once thought impossible, the presidency has been politicized and its enforcement arms used to pursue and punish Obama´s political enemies.´´

Now, remember THIS quote from Dear Leader himself?:

"We´re gonna punish our enemies, and we´re gonna reward our friends ..."

It´s happening every day, just like he said. Hello, Republican ´´Elite´´!!!´´

Speaking of 1938 (or 1933 as the case may be) I am waiting for the metaphorical burning of the Reichstag so Zippy´s brown shirt goons can take over the government. It seems we are heading in that direction.

The unsuspecting German people gave up their arms; we have better plans for ours. The Jews willingly entered the boxcars; we are prepared to destroy them and the prisons. WE are the government; the goons in Washington are temporary residents who simply haven´t made us mad enough yet. When they do, there will be a body hanging from every light pole, a pitchfork in every face. It´s going to get very ugly for the traitors of both parties.

The behavior of Obama grates on every nerve in my American freedom loving body. Our country has always stood for justice and freedom until now. Obama has changed the government all right but he can´t change the heart of the people. He has an uphill battle if he thinks Americans will roll over and just let him destroy what has been bought with the blood of our ancestors. Each day moves us closer to the breaking point. My only wish is that we had men and women of courage in our government who would say, enough. It looks like to me that it is going to have to be we the people who will put a stop to Obama´s foolishness. There is a growing rumbling in this country that will not be silenced and Obama is pushing for confrontation. He wants a showdown between us and if our government leaders do not rise up on behalf of the people and stop this insanity, the people will. My prayer is that the politicians in Washington will wake up to the real and present danger that Obama represents. He did not come to unite us. He came to do exactly what he is doing and that is to gouge a divide so wide that it could never be mended. He is setting up his party as rulers and any opposition will be silenced. Republicans need to extend the hand of friendship to every democrat who wants our country back. Make the case that the Republican Party can restore this great country. This fight is not about party, it is all about saving this country from tyranny. Americans of all political persuasions need to unite to defeat the lawless corruption that is the Obama administration.

Don´t forget the incident with Ford also. Ford made a commercial mocking GM needing a bailout with their "surprise media party" for unsuspecting customers who were then asked to share their Ford experience. The White House got mad, called Ford, told them to "knock it off", which they did.

I posted this article on CL/politics when I first noticed this article on Luc and this ignorant lefty actually tried to justify the D´ Souza persecution by saying, "the movie sucked, it was like a never ending Shaun Hannity interview", lol.

BTW: what happened to that $670 million Obama blew on the website, before he fired Michelle´s Princeton friend´s company CGI? Are we getting a rebate? Did Obama embezzle that money, theft by conversion? Who gave him authority to spend another 90 million on the new company? How about language that is usually written into contracts that allows for daily fines every day a product is not delivered as promised? Did incompetent Obama conveniently leave it out? We US taxpayers want some accountability here, answers and action! What happened to all that money? It is no drop in the bucket. That loser stole much of it through kickbacks.

The fealty of our national media to this president remains too strong to permit the reporting of simple truth. As a result, many Americans are unaware of the systematic destruction of the rule of law taking place.

Low or no information voters don´t care to know. If they did they would keep up with what´s happening. Alinsky tactics changed the world by convincing the uninformed to vote even though they have no clue what they´re voting for. Result? Obama.

This is another example of Alinsky´s rule of making your enemy follow their own rules. The rules say everyone can vote, including the brain dead. So they do.

I’m sure Obama will be shocked when he reads about this in the newspapers, as well as John Boehner. The “Speaker” threw away a great opportunity to educate the public on the lawlessness of this administration with his stupid performance on Jay Leno’s couch.

#12 is right about Obama pushing us towards a confrontation between the people and the government. We will all have to prepare to respond, as #8 stated, because the ballot box is as corrupted as Barry’s soul and the Grand Old Progressives are throwing the game.

These are not mere coincidences. They are a pattern of legal and regulatory abuse that extends throughout the government´s executive branch.

Uh huh and think of the thousands of people who are not famous or well off whose lives have been destroyed by these leftists, like my own wife who was forced to resign because three homosexuals who worked for her created a false, totally out of context two year long complaint against her (that they started unknown to her, the minute she was hired and became their boss). She was told by the hospital administration that her entire 60 person department would be subpoenaed, the news media would be used against her and if she did not resign that instant, she would be placed under investigation. One of the three homosexuals now run the department. My wife´s career was destroyed thanks to the gay agenda and she did nothing to deserve it. It´s real kids and like the tyranny that is Obama, it is NOT going away nor will it abate in the slightest even with all the articles about well known people´s lives being destroyed. Letters of concern from the Depends wearing GOP is the ONLY real consequence for the actions of Obama and his administration. That´s been pretty effective, huh?

And pay attention to the actual admitting to and urging of the IRS going after Republicans and especially the Tea Party---all this by Chuck Schumer. Of course, THIS, on film, probably will not be played on the Networks or via the MSM. Schumer comes right out and urges the continuance of abuse!!!!!!!!! I guess the end justifies the means for people like Schumer, no matter what it does to the country as a whole. He KNOWS the Republicans will not act in kind.

Hope Dinesh gets support from his fellow Republicans, but I would not bet on it. He will have to rely on fellow Conservatives.

Sad to say, it looks like Conservatives have no place in politics today. Kind of what Cuomo said regarding New York.

I just finished a book about the appointment of William Dodd as Ambassador to Germany from 1933 to 1937. Interesting book because it was an insight into how Hitler and the rest of his thugs came to power.

The blindness of American politicians and diplomats to what was going on in Nazi Germany is a key to what is happening in this country right now. The Democrat Party, through Obama, is becoming a replica of the Nazi regime of the 30´s and 40´s.

The Tea Party currently and its citizen politicians are becoming the Democrats Jew´s through illegal government pressure and intimidation. This is also true of most citizens who give them trouble.

The trouble with most Marxists is they are dictators and brown shirts waiting to be unleashed.

I strongly disagree, #3 - the current Executive Branch is not - I repeat - NOT- "the US".
The lawlessness starts with just a small handful of people in the Executive Branch. True, it has spread to certain members of the Legislative and even some in the judiciary, but without ´Dear Leader´ Barack Hussein Obama and his appointees, it wouldn´t be this way.

While I agree with almost every comment above, I am detecting something which concerns me greatly - a defeatist attitude. We must stay positive as our Founding Fathers did in their Declaration of Independence.

My favorite words are found in the last paragraph: And for the support of this Declaration with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred Honor.

But an equal source to which we can look for strength is found in the story of Gideon and the 300 in the Book of Judges. Maybe we feel so overwhelmed because we are looking for thousands who will fight when God is looking for only 300. The story of how 300 out of 10,000 brave men were chosen is instructive:

Even though these men were brave, they were not all wise[sound familiar?].
God asked Gideon to take them down to the river and watch them drink. The number of those who drank while keeping guard of their surroundings was 300 men. The other 9,700 bowed down to the water losing sight of potential enemy attacks. God said that the 300 would become Gideon’s army to fight against the Midianites (Judges 7:4-8). According to Judges 8:10 there were at least 135,000 enemy troops against Gideon’s 300 soldiers.***

The whole chain of command is corrupt!
Government lawless corruption starts right in the super market, where citizens buy food products that sponsor Communist networking newscasts, blinded news actors like Diane Sawyer and fellow travelers like David Letterman, who praise Hitlerian power and censorship, because America votes daily buying corruption sponsoring products. Corruption is everywhere.
Adolph Obama is just part of this open lawlessness.
Imagine the full armed power of the government attacking a world acknowledged author who made a film our elite totalitarians don´t like. Remember the video maker STILL IN PRISON who was blamed for Benghazi? All of this is happening because there is basically only one party, the POWER IN OFFICE PARTY
where good people disappear like at a drunken orgy,

The good news is that a few precedent setting films have been made within Communist controlled Hollywood. SHOOTER has repeated showings on cable
where an elitist power mad senator is shot and killed!
Very John Wayne satisfying, indeed !

Ted Cruz and Rand Paul are just annoyances to the majority elite. The so called "opposition", silent, drunken faced, misty eyed John Boehner, is the perfect example of the American Dilemma. He holds hands with Obama, like Chris Christie, and says nothing about rampant crime being pulled off right in front of his eyes EVERY DAY !
With disgraces like Boehner supposedly in command,
and the networks and cables.censoring news actors in ideological, totalitarian, blinded lockstep to every whim of our communist Muslim leader and his Marxian cabal,

It is time to speak up, for every American of good conscience to speak up, be heard, come out of the closet of socialist PC intimidation, and resist, turn away from tyranny, before it takes us over.

Like Paddy Chayefky´s classic movie, it´s time to shout,

I have said many times on this site that another revolution is needed. And every day it becomes more and more obvious. So, where are those who will lead it? We need them to come forward right now. If we continue to wait, it will become more difficult to clean the DC swamp. It needs to be done NOW.

Sadly, I personally don´t have the skills to lead such an endeavor. But I certainly am willing to join in and do my part.

#18 - interesting post, as I just asked my Mr. Tomato this morning about that exact sum of money.

If I´m not mistaken, CGI is owned in part by Valerie Jarrett´s daughter´s father in law; a Canadian based company? The same ´company´ that Obama hired to ´fix the problems.´

I´ve suspected money laundering all along. For example: The billions of tax dollars thrown at green energy companies; each and every green energy company has now shuttered its doors.

The ´War on Women´ Failed in 2012
Wall Street Journal, by Michael Medved    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/17/2014 7:48:13 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is suddenly upset about the alleged wage gap between men and women, but he´s not responding to a national economic crisis. Instead, he is attempting to revive the "war on women" theme that, according to Washington wisdom, helped carry Democrats to victory in 2012 and might do again in 2014. If this narrative were true, the White House could spend the year demonizing Republicans as women-hating creeps, driving women to the polls in November and helping the party hold the Senate. But the conventional analysis isn´t accurate. National exit polls from 2012 show scant success for the war-on-women

Regulation: In a victory for common sense, a federal judge has voided a race-based mandate of the Dodd-Frank Act that would have cost manufacturers and retailers billions in compliance expenses. Marking the first time a court has ruled that a provision of Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that the financial "reform" law´s bizarre rule requiring companies to disclose whether their products contain "conflict minerals" from Africa violates the First Amendment.

Anyone wondering why the U.S. economy can´t seem to grow at its usual pace should examine one product category where production is booming: federal regulation. Washington set a new record in 2013 by issuing final rules consuming 26,417 pages in the Federal Register. While plenty of government employees deserve credit for this milestone, leadership matters. And by this measure President Obama has never been surpassed in the Oval Office. The latest rule-making tally comes from the Competitive Enterprise Institute´s Wayne Crews, who on April 29 will publish his annual review of federal regulation in

Fiscal Policy: Remember President Obama´s vow that, if re-elected, he´d pursue "balanced" deficit reduction? Either he forgot, or he hopes voters have, because a new report shows his latest budget is entirely unbalanced. When Obama released his budget this March, he said it included "smart spending cuts" and closed "tax loopholes" that benefit only "the wealthiest Americans." Obama added that his budget would put "our debt on a downward path as a share of our total economy, which independent experts have set as a critical target for fiscal responsibility."

Corruption: New emails show that both the IRS and Justice Department were involved in a probe of Tea Party and other conservative groups. This is no mere scandal — it´s a major breach of the law. The newly released emails were gathered for a Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan public interest law group. They show that former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner discussed with the Justice Department going after conservative groups that she believed lied about their political activities. What´s shocking is that this discussion came just days before Lerner acknowledged that the IRS had

He made the comments during an appearance at a Review-Journal event, and repeated them, saying “what happened there was domestic terrorism’ The government says Bundy owes more than a million dollars in grazing fees and fines stemming from a 20-year dispute over trespass cattle. After obtaining court orders and beginning a roundup of cattle more than a week ago, BLM backed down, called off the roundup, and returned the cattle, after armed supporters of Bundy converged on the area.

Flat on his belly in a sniper position, wearing a baseball cap and a flak jacket, a protester aimed his semi-automatic rifle from the edge of an overpass and waited as a crowd below stood its ground against U.S. federal agents in the Nevada desert. He was part of a 1,000-strong coalition of armed militia-men, cowboys on horseback, gun rights activists and others who rallied to Cliven Bundy´s Bunkerville ranch, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, in a stand-off with about a dozen agents from the federal Bureau of Land Management. The rangers had rounded up hundreds of Bundy´s cattle, which

A Washington woman has come under fire over claims her PTSD caused by online harassment and Twitter trolls is equal to that of military veterans. Melody Hensley was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder 16 months ago following online abuse, which she says is the result of her being an outspoken feminist and atheist. She caused upset to many military veterans and their families and friends when she claimed her PTSD from Twitter trolls was as bad as mental anguish suffered by those who do active duty. Ms Hensley, head of an organisation promoting secular ideas, has suffered from PTSD for more than

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) is warning the Obama administration to not issue an executive order requiring that all new guns be made with biometric technology, such as finger-print recognition or bracelets. Cornyn raised the issue in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, who in testimony earlier this month highlighted biometric bracelets and fingerprint identification as a safety issue. “Your testimony has raised serious concerns for my constituents given President Obama’s track-record of acting beyond the scope of his legal authority and your hostility to the individual right to self-defense under the Second Amendment,” Cornyn wrote. “Is the Obama administration currently exploring

The man who was almost president graced Honolulu with his presence Tuesday and walked us through a "seminar of sustainability." By turns a university professor, a wry observer, a recovering politician, a joke teller and a Southern preacher, Al Gore fired up an audience of thousands at the Stan Sheriff Center to believe that global warming can be stopped. But it´s possible only if each of us does our part. "Ultimately, we are going to win this thing," he said, one of many statements met with hearty applause. He also managed to repeatedly gush over fellow Democrats Neil Abercrombie and Brian Schatz, who

Over two dozen widows in Alabama were dropped from their health care plans due to Obamacare, WHNT reports: "More than two dozen widows who were married to retired Madison county employees, lost their health insurance coverage earlier this year. And now one commissioner says it´s time to give it back to them. The change was sparked by the new federal health care law, but whether or not coverage can actually be restored really isn´t clear," said the anchor. Says the reporter, "Madison county commissioner Roger Jones says no one realized just how much the new federal health care law would change

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
