The Chicago Way, again.Now he mentions the reporter Shield law (bribe to the media to not push scandals) while tapping their phones to make sure no rival stories emerge to challenge Hussein Nixon’s view/spin on stories.
Intimidation of regime dissenters, just like a third world country.The IRS move is the lawless reaction to Citizens United.The “under the radar” gun grabs are ignoring the Heller decision.Suing Arizona to stop enforcement of Immigration laws.Ignoring 2 appeals court rulings against the NLRB recess appointments.
Laws, we don’t need no stinkin laws is the Holder, Obama, Butch Napolitano meme. Gangster politics.Standard method of operation.
The metaphor, it burns.
Green bleeds red.
Eagles????? We don’t need no stinkin’ eagles.
What difference does it make?
Obama doesn’t know about this.
It was low-level staffers.
What does it matter?
