Number one, even though this scandal took part in 2011 under the Fast and Furious campaign, it wasnt until June of 2012 that the House of Representatives voted to hold Eric Holder in contempt of congress for his refusal to produce requested documents about the Fast and Furious campaign.
- Obama asserted executive privilege over the relevant February 4th 2011 documents that disclosed what was going on in the Fast and Furious program. Obama granted the Department of Justices’ 11th hour request to hide the sought after documents which also proved holder was lying to congress with regard to when he found out about the Fast and Furious cover-up. Basically, under this campaign weapons that were linked to Fast and Furious were linked to the murder of Boarder Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2011. He was killed by illegal immigrants using guns the government had provided who were also smuggling drugs into the United States. Two more weapons were also found in the murder of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Zapata in Mexico in February 2011, once again the weapons were apart of government provided guns under Fast and Furious.
On September 11th of 2012 their was an orchestrated terrorist attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
- This was a terrorist attack but the public was made to believe that it was a response to a youtube video called The Innocence of Muslims. The talking points following the attack given by Susan Rice, on all of the Sunday morning talk shows days after the attack directly mislead the American public into believing a youtube video caused an uprising in which the Libyan consulate was attacked and Four Americans were killed including Ambassador Stevens.
- At the date, September 11th 2012, the Obama campaign machine was in high gear for Mr. Obama and his adminstration, so an attack that killed an ambassador as well as three other Americans could not happen because it would have politcally hurt Obamas ability to get re-elected. His credibility could not be questioned and therefore the terrorist attack was blammed on the youtube video, spun so it wasnt considered a terrorist attack, and swept under the rug so that Obama could be re-elected. He was and thats all that mattered to him and his campaign, which came first, the lives and credibility of the American nation, came second.
In early 2013 it was confirmed that the Internal Revenue Service deliberately targeted the “tea party” and “patriot” organizations looking for and applying for tax exempt status prior to and during the 2012 election.
- Lois Lerner stated that, “Organizations were signaled out because they included the words “tea party” or “patriot” in their applications for tax exempt status”. Furthermore, “in some cases, groups were asked for their list of donors, which violates IRS policy”. The IRS was also wanting donors lists so that they could target and audit donors as well during the 2012 presidential campaign in order to secure that any opponent to Obama (Romney) would have no chance at winning due to any and all of his donors being audited or held up for months due to IRS investigations.
On May 10th 2013, Hillary Clinton’s leading role in changing Emails over Benghazi talking points was discovered during hearings regarding her actions and the actions of her staff when the terrorist siege was underway.
- This was about the scrubbing of the CIA’S Benghazi talking points to delete terrorism references and focus on the youtube video. The State Department pushed for the talking points to be changed to cover up its Pre-Benghazi malfeasance with which the white house agreed, in the end goal to help Obama get re-elected. Also, Clinton and her top advisors requested this (the talking points) to be changed so that all references to terrorism be completely removed from Susan Rices talking points. Thus, once again, deliberately misleading the American Public with Obama seemingly uninvolved in all of this
On May 14th to the 16th of 2013 We had the Associated Press Phone Scandal
- It was reveled during this time that the Associated Press had been secretly targeted by the Department of Justice in which the DOJ had sweeping seizures of staff phone records. According to the Associated Press, ” Top executives from the AP have mounted an aggressive public pushback against DOJ, calling its snooping a massive and unprecedented intrusion as we’ll as an unprecedented assault on the freedom of the press”. The DOJ defended this by finding and obtaining search warrants in order to literally suppress the freedom of the press under the disguise of a warrant based upon grounds that the AP had classified information. Basically it was the DOJ’s attempt tot find out who leaked the classified information to them, who there source was, and therefore the DOJ was given the power to access all AP phone records for one specified case, thus suppressing and chilling the freedom of the press.
On May 19th 2013, The DOJ obtained access to Fox News reporter James Rosen’s email account and investigated his families emails as well.
- Foxnews released a statement, “we are outraged to learn today that Rosen was named a criminal co-conspirator for simply doing his job as reporter. In fact, it is downright chilling. We will unequivocally defend his right to operate as a member of what up until now has always been a free press”. The DOJ obtained access to Rosen’s emails under a warrant by alleging that there was probable cause to believe that James Rosen had committed a crime apart of the Espionage Act as an acting co-conspirator. Somehow this was justified, signed by a Judge, and the DOJ was thus granted the ability to access and obtain (spy) on a journalist reporter under false pretenses and therefore they successfully chilled the press.
June and still continuing today, NSA whistle blower Edward Snowden, leaks how the NSA is spying on everyday Americans and further revelations are reveled under this.
- We found out early in June that the NSA has been and continues to spy on Americans with the disclosure of the PRISM program which revealed that the NSA was collecting emails and phone records of millions of Americans daily. Now, granted asylum in Russia, Snowden has continued to leak information on the far reaching abilities of the NSA and how they have recently spied on international presidents and citizens (I.E. Grenkel Germany). We are still continuing to here just how far reaching the NSA’s abilities truly are, such as emails of Americans within Google, yahoo and many other email providers not to mention phone calls, text messages and even Facebook chats.
October 1st 2013 we had the partial government shutdown which lasted 17 days.
- This is when things truly began to unravel with the government and the beliefs of the Administration came fulfilled. The Obama administration would not agree with anything but a full fledged continuing resolution with regards to re-opening the government in which president Obama decided to act in a way that polarized the American people. He Polarized and demonized the GOP, Republicans, and the tea party with the rhetoric of referring to them as hijackers, radicals, arsonists, terrorists while at the same time claiming that he was holding meetings with said conservatives. He then outright demonized them, backed by the media, and made it appear that the Republican party as a whole was fully responsible and wanted this government shutdown pure and simple.
October 3rd and continuing today, as I have previously posted topics on this I will not go into depth about it because it is continuing today and Ill continue to update this blog with regards to the plagued issues under healthcare.gov and Obamacare as a whole.
The reason I wrote this was to show the 9 major scandals that have happened within the past year of this presidents 2nd term, with the main point being that the president wouldn’t have won the election in 2012 had the public truly been made aware of what happened in Benghazi as well as the public not being intentionally lied to by Obama with regards to Obamacare and what was truly going to happen to their health insurance policies. This administration is plagued with scandals on top of scandals and ive frankly have had enough, with just these 9 in the past YEAR! It blows my mind……whats next??
