Just How Corrupt Is the Obama Administration?
http://frontpagemag.com ^ | 8/20/13 | By Arnold Ahlert

Posted on 08/21/2013 11:53:30 AM PDT by bestintxas

Scandal after scandal, coupled with an ongoing contempt for the law and the Constitution, demonstrated by high-level officials and the president himself, point to one deeply troubling conclusion: the Obama administration may be the most corrupt administration ever inflicted on the American public. And while the mainstream media have done a remarkable job deflecting much of that reality, even they cannot keep up with the avalanche of disturbing revelations that arise, seemingly on a daily basis.

We begin with yet another report about the Fast and Furious gunrunning operation, courtesy of Sharyl Attkisson, one of the few remaining reporters who follows a story wherever it goes. Last Wednesday, three more F&F weapons turned up at crime scenes in Mexico. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and as many as 300 Mexican nationals, including teens at a birthday party, were slaughtered by those weapons. Yet the ensuing investigation was first thwarted by Eric Holder’s refusal to turn over critical documents to congressional investigators, earning him a contempt of Congress citation. It was followed by President Obama invoking executive privilege to prevent the same. Other documents reveal that Eric Holder lied to Congress about when he first heard about the operation. The House Oversight Committee is currently suing for release of the material, but both Holder and Obama remain unscathed by this deadly debacle, even as the Terry family’s effort to find out what really happened to their son has been ignored.

Never gonna happen. Not unless they find him sucking blood out of the necks of Jay Zee, Beyoncé, and Justin Bieber on the White Hut lawn.

If the Senate will not convict, as they won't, going through impeachment will be totally futile.

On a corruption scale of 1-10. They’re a 17.

We used to be a nation of laws. No longer. Now we’re a nation of “men” (loosely defined). The slide was accomplished with a lot more ease then you would have thought possible.

“If the Senate will not convict, as they won’t, going through impeachment will be totally futile.”

Just impeach.

Then.....

Insult them. Call them the Roman Senate. Make their lives a living hell. And accuse all of them of covering up for the American Caeser. Run ads telling the voter, no matter how low information that the Senate is Demcrat senate is planning on enslaving them just like in ancient Rome. Produce evidence.

Go after the media as sycophants in knee pads. Go viral, anything and everything. Don’t stop. Get Harry Reid trying on Hoover’s dresses. Charles Schumer eating puppies at Sardi’s. Every Democrat Senator up for reelection go after.

Their spouses, their children, their intelligence.... Don’t let up.

And when they finally come out and complain, insult them even more.

That’s the only way to win.

If they impeach, I'll go with what you said.

As much as I'd love it to, it's simply not going to happen.

I completely agree with this strategy. Go on the offense and never let up. Every single day just keep banging on the drum as loud as you can and NEVER EVER let up.

Corrupt? The Current Regime now squatting in the White Hut gives corruption a bad name. They do it not for money, or even power (both of which are being squandered on a daily basis, with no end of the waste in sight), they go so far as to deny the basic goodness of all that has gone on before, and are desperately trying to change the very foundations governing that territory once known as “the United States of America”. What was once the rule of law in this nation has become a competition between whoever has the loudest bullhorn.

Short of using the draconian measures that recall those of Josef Stalin or Adolf Eichmann, there are still vast numbers of occupants of this territory who do not sign onto the whole agenda now being promoted with such ferocity and aggressiveness.

Don’t ever try to send an North American bison through a slaughterhouse. You will end up with a ruined slaughterhouse, and a pretty pumped-up bison.

0bama's NSA has the goods on Boehner, or anyone else who dare threaten the NWO's 0bama with impeachment.

The House should begin impeachment proceedings against 0bama and his criminal accomplices in the IRS scandal.

The Republicans MUST NOT allow the IRS to continue their voter suppression of conservatives through the midterms and 2016 and beyond.

There is a tale, taken from Aesop’s Fables, about the mice who were subject to serious raids upon their community by The Cat. One of the mice came up with the suggestion, that there ought be a bell placed around the neck of the cat, so the mice might hear of The Cat’s approach, and thus flee.

The issue won by acclamation, until one wise old mouse rose up to ask:

“And who shall place the bell on The Cat?”

And there you have the dilemma. There are none brave enough to put the bell on The Cat. Success is uncertain at best, and personal destruction is unavoidable in any instance.

Also ICE Agent Jaime Zapata.

You ain’t seen nothing yet.

If Obamacare is not killed this IPAB board will become the Mother of All One-Stop Shopping Centers for corruption. No one who has ANY product or service to offer in the health care industry will be allowed to proceed without their blessing. It will be strictly pay-to-play.

If you think that Bill Clinton was’t neutered by being impeached, then you are truly futile

However corrupt you think they are, on a scale of 1 to 100, multiply it by a factor of ten. Now square that number. Square it again. Multiply the result by the total number of days in two four year presidential administrations, cubed.

The Obama administration is several times MORE corrupt than your final result.

There's a tribe in America opposed to defunding Obamacare.

There's another opposed to impeachment.

Finally, another is opposed to an Article V amendment convention of the states.

The tribes often overlap. Rinos belong to all three. Many Freepers are in the second and third tribes. The Walter Mitty Warriors, those who think they and their fat buddies with AR-15s have a chance, also belong to all three tribes.

The Framers gave us peaceful means to deal with a despot. History will not treat us well if we ignore those means.

You've got to have the country behind you when you impeach.

If you don't the Senate will acquit...and Obama will come out stronger than he is now. Bad idea.

“If you don’t the Senate will acquit...and Obama will come out stronger than he is now. Bad idea.”

With that kind of thinking, Bill Clinton must have come out stronger after he was impeached. Never happened.

Bill’s cavorting and bald-faced lying came out in the open when the House impeached him. Americans took note and he plummeted.

Same thing will happen with Obama’s many lies, deceptions and outright violations of the Constitution that the MSM refuses to report on.

I guess you haven't noticed Bill Clinton's popularity rating is much higher than it was before impeachment?

There was a time when Americans wanted him out. Then impeachment started and the media made it all about the House GOP.

Let's not let that happen with Obama please.

“I guess you haven’t noticed Bill Clinton’s popularity rating is much higher than it was before impeachment?”

Clinton was impeached in 1998 or 15 years ago.

This neutered him during what was left of his Presidency and was despised by the majority of Americans.

During the 13 years he has held no office, he has arisen due more to his wife whose career took off than due to anything Bill did.

In any case, so what if he is more popular now? He has no power anymore for the past 13 years.

In contrast, Obama has real power at his fingertips. That is what needs to be weakened.

Impeachment will certainly do it, and I for one fervently wish to air all his dirty laundry out for all to see, laundry that the MSM refuses to air.

No, the House was despised a lot more than Bill by the time the MSM got done with their lies. Delay, Gingrich, Lott Graham...they were all in the gutter by the time that fiasco was done.

he has arisen due more to his wife

The only reason Hillary won office was because of Bill.

That is what needs to be weakened. Impeachment will certainly do it

No way. Just wait till the media twists everything into lies to make Boehner seem like evil incarnate. And Obama will come out looking like Jesus.

Don't be foolish.

I hate the Dems...why would I vote for them?

You've go blinders on it if you really believe the MSM did not ridicule, slash, and denigrate the GOP during impeachment. Meanwhile, Clinton's numbers rose.

And the same thing would happen if you got Obama impeached right now. Please do not make him a martyr.

Probably not much...he didn't do much at the best of times.

But he left office with the highest approval numbers of any President post WWII. If you want Obama to become wildly popular then go ahead and impeach giving the MSM an opportunity to attack Boehner for being racist and lavish praise on the messiah. Ugh.

He did nothing post impeachment.

In meantime, Obama is ravaging our constitution and people like you hide their heads in the sandbox.

The Constitution is designed to specically address lawless Presidents, like it did with Clinton.

And it works, even when scared people like you don’t want it to.

No, Clinton did nothing post-impeachment except rake in millions from speaking so he could help his wife snag some of the most powerful positions in the country.

Oh, yeah. We can look forward to Obama and Michelle staying in the limelight for years to come if the media gets a chance to re-invigorate his popularity through premature impeachment also.
