Oversight Chairman Reissues Fast and Furious Subpoena to Loretta Lynch
Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz has reissued a subpoena to Attorney General Loretta Lynch regarding the Obama Justice Department’s deadly Fast and Furious scandal.
The subpoena, originally issued to former Attorney General Eric Holder and ignored, seeks documents and information surrounding the December 2010 murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Terry was murdered by Mexican bandits in Arizona’s Rico Valley. Guns from Operation Fast and Furious were left at the scene…
Disgraced former President Bill Clinton mercifully waited until he had left office before beginning his effort to rewrite the history of his disastrous tenure in the White House.
Barack Hussein Obama is less patient.
Obama said recently, “I am extremely proud that over eight years, we have not had the kind of scandals that have plagued other administrations.” Yes, he really said that! A number of news sources detail no less than 20 scandals of the Obama administration. Obama may be relying upon the “fake news” of media outlets such as ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, PBS, MSNBC and the New York Times to support his outrageously bogus statement. Those of us who have not been comatose for the past eight years tend to have different recollections.
A partial list of Obama lowlights begins with Solyndra — the solar panel manufacturing company that secured $535 million in federal loans before closing its doors and laying off 1,100 employees. Obama touted Solyndra as an example of “successful renewable energy” companies.
Operation Fast and Furious was another major Obama scandal in which the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms compelled firearms dealers to sell guns illegally. This unlawful action resulted in the deaths of border agents and put guns in the hands of criminal Mexican drug cartels in direct violation of the very federal laws Obama swore to enforce.
Former Attorney General, Eric Holder was in charge of Fast and Furious, which was a political ploy intended to turn public opinion in favor of radical gun laws of the kind that utterly failed in Obama’s hometown of Gang Land Chicago. Holder resigned in disgrace.
Like former President Bill Clinton before him, Obama used the IRS to target his political opponents. Applications for tax-exempt status by many local tea party groups were stalled until Judicial Watch launched an investigation and broke through the administration’s roadblocks.
Veterans Administration officials under Obama created another scandal by wasting $6 million on two conferences at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The outrage intensified when it was revealed that millions more tax dollars were wasted on “art works” at several V.A. facilities while veterans were dying awaiting treatment.
Obama’s illegal amnesty-by-executive-order was stopped by federal courts when it was struck down as unconstitutional. On 20 previous occasions, Obama denied that he had intentions to impose amnesty by executive order and even admitted that he lacked the authority to initiate such a measure.
Without congressional approval, the Obama administration attacked Libya, involving the United States in a war of questionable purpose and objective. For context, when Ronald Reagan attempted to provide U.S. aid to Nicaragua in its struggle against the communist government there, Democrats launched a massive Congressional investigation. No such inquiry was made in the case of Libya.
While the news media refused to investigate Benghazi, Congress did not, and that examination of the administration’s refusal to protect the Libyan Embassy in Benghazi led to the discovery of Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server. The Benghazi ambassador, Christopher Stevens, and three other embassy personnel were killed as the Obama administration stood by and did nothing.
Obama may be “extremely proud” of his record. Perhaps he’s pleased that fawning media organizations have kept quiet, burying the facts about his many scandals and unconstitutional executive actions. But the sheer number of the dishonorable and contemptible lawless acts committed by Obama and his underlings have so sullied his administration that they make his the most corrupt presidential administration in modern history, if not all of American history.
Millions of faithful praying Christians — those of us identified by Obama as “bitter people who cling to guns and religion” — responded by placing an expiration date on the downward slide of America toward the great abyss. Obama’s ju-ju must now be eradicated from every corner, crack and crevice of our government and society.
Despite the dismal Obama administration record, there is reason for great hope in Christian America, because “greater is He that is within us, than he that is in the world.” The United States and Donald Trump are both going to need our prayers and political support in the months and years to come. America and President Trump deserve nothing less.
