Lying Under Oath, It’s A Democrat Thing

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/08/15

Former President Clinton perjured himself and suborned perjury while the sitting President. He wanted to keep the truth tucked neatly under his desk.

Eric Holder and other members of his “Department of Justice” lied under oath to Congress concerning Fast and Furious, what they knew, when they knew it, what they were doing, how far up the chain of command it went.

First, OF&F’s gunrunning has left hundreds of murder victims in its wake, including two US government agents, Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and ICE agent Jaime Zapata. It’s likely that the guns trafficked by the ATF in 2009 will claim more victims. Thus far, there is no indication that the Obama administration has done so much as demote anyone over the program. Administration officials lied to Congress about the nature of the program and their knowledge of it, which is the proximate cause for the contempt citation.

If Congress can’t access documents to investigate executive-branch malfeasance of this scope, especially with the added dollop of perjury and obstruction of justice vis-a-vis the House Oversight Committee, then Congress will have no real ability to conduct oversight of executive-branch activities at all. That plus the extremely shaky claim of executive privilege puts the Obama administration on course for a big loss, and a very large precedent on Congressional subpoenas that both parties will celebrate and have cause to regret in the future.

And Steven Chu, most recently, has been called out as he and other members of his Department of Energy lied under oath to Congress concerning all the “green energy” loans that were going out to political beneficiaries, the DoE’s attempts to hide the communications, in violation of more than one Federal Law, and other similar criminally corrupt activities.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-California) sent a letter to DOE Secretary Steven Chu on Tuesday, calling out him and his Department for apparently providing false testimony to Congress concerning the energy loan program.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, along with Subcommittee Chairmen Jim Jordan and Trey Gowdy, asked Secretary of Energy Steven Chu to clarify apparently false testimony to Congress about efforts to conceal documents from investigators and White House involvement in the Department of Energy Loan Program that used taxpayer funds to support companies including Solyndra. The request comes after the Committee obtained documents from individual non-official e-mail accounts contradicting the testimony.

“Recently-obtained documents show DOE officials frequently used Yahoo! and Gmail to communicate about the loan guarantee program,” Issa, Jordan, and Gowdy wrote to Chu. “This use of non-government e-mail accounts for official business may have violated the Presidential Records Act (PRA) and the Federal Records Act (FRA). The documents also show that testimony given to the Committee by current and former DOE officials, including you, was inaccurate, and may have been intentionally false.”

While Clinton was doing his perjury thing about a soiled dress and a ruined cigar, the Obama administration is doing their perjury thing about corrupt Chicago-style “pay to play” billions of Federal Government dollars to Democrat insiders and thousands of guns that were intentionally run across the border and have been used to murder hundreds of people (with hundreds more murders sure to follow). And the Leftist “mainstream media” is working overtime to hide all that information to a sheep-like populace in their efforts to cover for the criminally corrupt and murderous Obama administration.

I expect this to play out even after Obama loses re-election, with many Democrat operatives doing the perp-walk for their many Federal crimes. There is a non-zero possibility that Obama could do a tall stack of 11th hour Presidential Pardons, but I don’t believe the likelihood is all that high.

1) Pardoning a pile of administration officials would put a permanent taint on Democrats in general, greatly harming their chances at majority or the Presidency for years to come. But I don’t believe Obama is at all concerned with other Democrats; only with himself. So this issue is a weak point against pardons.

2) Pardoning a pile of administration officials take the Fifth Amendment off the table. Nobody who has been immunized against his or her previous crimes can avoid testifying about his or her previous (now immunized) crimes, thus the conspiratorial nature of their crimes combined with unpardoned people (such as Obama himself, since he cannot pardon himself) is suddenly available to the Courts. This is the major reason why I believe Obama will not issue a raft of pardons for his administration team. He cannot afford to take the specter of a long prison sentence away from any member of his staff. It would spell doom for him. And, again, while wholly unimportant to Obama himself, it would crush Democrat political hopes for years to come.

So, yes, look for a nice long list of Obama administration types to do the perp walk for their many corruptions and Federal Felonies sometime in the future.

Who Didn’t See This Coming?

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/04/10

The Mainstream Media and the professional race-baiters (sorry for that needless repetition) have convicted George Zimmerman of a hate-crime in the death of Trayvon Martin. They have hyped up the mob hate, led the charge. Jesse “Hymie-town” Jackson, Al “murder enabling” Sharpton, Barack “acted stupidly” Obama have all been involved in instigating massive racial tensions without even bothering to examine any evidence. The New Black Panther Party has issued a 10,000 bounty on Zimmerman’s head, sending out Wanted posters with the message “Dead or Alive” on them, and has told people to get suited up and booted up for a race war. Of course, Eric “my people” Holder, who has already set NBPP members loose after their already voter intimidation convictions as a result of their voter intimidation actions in Philadelphia during the 2008 elections because they were “his people” (meaning skin color), has refused to clamp down on the illegal instigation actions of the NBPP (which will get people murdered).

Well, we now have news out of ABC that a Police Car was riddled with holes in the same neighborhood where Martin was shot. Who didn’t see that coming? As I previously wrote about ABC’s abject propagandastic Leftist racist race-baiting, it should come as no surprise that, even with this story about a police cruiser suddenly obtaining six bullet holes, the whole ABC story is so chock-full of Left-Wing propaganda that it will only serve to hype up the violence coming from the racist Left. ABC has no interest, none whatsoever, in accurately reporting the news or skeptically examining their Leftist sources as those sources spout off without, you know, being informed.

Who would have guessed that race-hatred instigations and cop-hatred instigations out of Obama, Jackson, Sharpton, ABC, NBC, CBS, NY Times, CNN, MSNBC, etc, etc, etc, would have caused people to go out and shoot at cop cars? Who would have guessed that the New Black Panther Party putting a bounty on a man’s head and telling people to suit up and boot up for a race war, with Holder’s complicit non-interference, would have caused people to go out and shoot at cop cars? Yeah, anyone with a brain could have prophesied that outcome. And it’s only going to get worse from here. Because the real racists (who I already listed above) are busily trying to make it a reality. And the lamestream media is busily shilling for the radical Left and not at all interested in honest reporting.

Fast And Furious: A Scandal Of Epic Proportion

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/29

The breadth and depth of the Obama Administration’s involvement in the wholly corrupt Operation Fast And Furious is of epic proportion. I would venture to say there has been no time in the history of the US that a scandal of this size has ever before been perpetrated, in terms of the number and level of the people involved, in terms of the cover-up involved, and in terms of lives lost.

ATF bought guns, then sold them to illegal buyers. An ATF agent in charge ordered this done, then ordered the illegal buyers not be surveilled, then when the field agent who had disobeyed that corrupt order and surveilled them anyway reported the guns were being moved and requested the ATF take down the illegal buyers and those moving the guns, his supervisor flat-out refused, allowing the guns to just disappear. Then the supervisor got promoted.

An FBI informant was involved in illegally transporting the guns across the border. The FBI also covered up the fact one of the Fast And Furious guns, tied to the FBI, was used in a murder.

The Department of Justice has obstructed the Congressional investigation, ordering its people to not cooperate, deceiving the Congressional investigation, and refusing to release documents related to Fast And Furious.

The White House received emails regarding Fast And Furious as it was in operation.

Over 200 murders are tied to Fast And Furious guns, including civilians, Law Enforcement officials, Government officials, and including people on both sides of the border.

While the New Media has been covering this epic scandal as the epic scandal it is, Mainstream Media has in essence not given much weight to the scandal at all. And some Democrats, at one point, were trying to use the wholly corrupt Operation Fast And Furious in an attempt to take away gun rights.

I have created a chronological list of New Media reports on Fast And Furious that I’ll place below the fold. The list is far from exhaustive, barely scratching the surface. Nor does the list start at the beginning, but it is a decent place to work on some research. Do some research, if you haven’t already, and let your anger at the full-blown corruption grow. Then inform those around you and vote the bums out.
