The Obama administration has weaponized government

The Obama administration has weaponized government

9 1764

Catherine Engelbrecht, founder of True the Vote, coined that wonderful phrase “weaponized government”. She and her businesses had never been audited by the IRS, visited by a government regulatory agency before 2010 when she filed for tax exempt status. Fifteen years of being ignored by the government.

Within months of filing True the Vote, the alphabet soup of agency visits started. Her family and her businesses have been subject to more than 15 audits of various types. Coincidence? She certainly doesn’t think so and neither do we.

It’s very obvious that Democrats are running scared over this issue. They thought they could use the power of the regulatory and taxing agencies to silence conservatives, and while it certainly worked before the 2012 election cycle, they’ve discovered that they have started a war on women conservatives that they will regret.

Ms. Engelbrecht is now taking the fight right to the Obama administration, the agencies that have been harassing her, and the Congress. We don’t expect her to back down and do not expect her to lose this battle.

It’s a sign of just how desperate Democrats are that they are pushing for an investigation of J. Russell George, the IRS Inspector General who issued the report that outed the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups. The Obama administration has a history of targeting Inspectors General who have criticized actions of agencies.

You’re seeing the reason that November is so very important, perhaps the most important election in the history of the nation. If Republicans can increase their majority in House and, more importantly, take the Senate, we have the opportunity to have joint House & Senate committees investigate the IRS and what really happened at Benghazi.

Will the Republican Leadership form joint committees to investigate the administration? We can’t say for sure, and there is every reason to be cynical. On the other hand, if Democrats retain control of the US Senate there will be no expanded investigations and our Imperial President will continue his ways absolutely unhindered for the remainder of his term.

Impeachment is not the answer, it will not happen. There aren’t 67 votes in the Senate and there won’t be 67 votes in the Senate if the Republicans win every contested seat. Having the US military arrest the President for whatever charges is not an option, we are a democratic republic, not a military junta. Anyone, repeat, anyone, who is pushing these two options given the current political climate is an ignorant fool. The important thing to do is to reestablish the rule of law in the nation and then to work to downsize the government.

It’s a war folks. Time to get off the couch and serve the nation. Time to get involved.

    “Having the US military arrest the President for whatever charges is not an option, we are a democratic republic, not a military junta. Anyone, repeat, anyone, who is pushing these two options given the current political climate is an ignorant fool.”
    I could not disagree more with this statement . No we are not a military junta, but just because the military could step in and arrest this treasonous president does not mean we then become a junta. What is just is just, the longer we let this situation continue the harder it will be to reverse the damage done. If not the military then who? The US citizen? Something has to give and it has to give soon. We are on the precipice of total destruction of our nation and culture. We are headed for third world status and that’s would be just fine with Obama.

      Let me repeat. You’re a damned idiot as well as an ignorant fool.

      You want to throw charges of treason around, and that demonstrates your complete ignorance. Treason has a specific legal burden attached to it. The President would have to be charged before a Federal Grand Jury and an indictment would have to be handed down. That’s not going to happen.

      With respect to the specifics of any proposed charge, you don’t have anything that even remotely approaches “treason”. What Obama is guilty of is very poor judgment, making politicized decisions with respect to foreign affairs and national security, and generally being incompetent. That’s proof that elections have consequences. Nothing more.

      Barack Obama will be President for about three more years, get over it.

        It’s mildly entertaining to watch someone so ignorant, and clearly angry about it, rant at others about ignorance. OTOH, It’s sad, what passes for conservative and constitutionalist these days. It’s why we will dissolve into civil war soon. I just hope nobody that matters has to rely on the likes of you when it happens.

        • Michael Becker

          Let me be clear. You are an idiot. What you aren’t is a “conservative” of any stripe. Feel free to go crawl in a hole with the rest of the Alex Jones Brigade.

            I don’t understand how you can be an apologist for Obama. Reading about you would make me think were are on the right side of politics, but you seem to have a totally different opinion on Obama than I have.I think he can be charged with treason for numerous things. How about purposely running this country into the ground. He along has run up our debt faster than all the previous Presidents put together. He has lied some many times I’m surprised he remembers any of them.He are the buffoon, you are the ignorant one not me ahole. I’m more conservative than you’ll ever hope to be. You should be careful calling people names when you publish your full name, you never know who you might just piss off one day. As for Alex Jones, he’s another jerk. He actually believes that a reptilian race has control of our government. SO don’t lump me in on that non-since.

            • Michael Becker

              I’m not an apologist by any means.

              He cannot be impeached.
              Period. Exactly zero Democrat Senators would vote to uphold impeachment
              and he and the press would use impeachment as an excuse to divert
              attention from Obamacare, etc. If Republicans won every contested seat
              they still couldn’t deliver 67 votes. Impeachment might make some
              people feel good but it would deliver a huge political victory to
              Democrats, Clinton redux times ten.

              As for the idea that the US
              military should “arrest” him, that happens to be a blatantly
              unconstitutional – and even more politically stupid – move. Anybody who
              would promote that is completely unhinged.

              All the rest of your
              complaints are nothing more than a blatant example of “elections have
              consequences”. Were you calling for GWB to be removed from office based
              on the fact that HE ran up debt faster than any previous President? If
              not, why not?

              As to his lies, so what? Does a politician lying
              rise to the level of a “high crime or misdemeanor”? An arguably
              comparable case can be made against any President. Or, for that matter,
              elected official.

              You want to throw around “buffoon” epithets
              have at it. I could care less. You and your buddy are every bit as
              disconnected from reality as Alex Jones, simply different specifics.
              Frankly te idea that the military should arrest the President is much
              farther away from reality than the idea that reptiles control the
              government.

              Try and make a rational case for any of your views,
              because you’ve failed miserably at this forum. All you’ve done is prove
              that you have no idea how real politics works, you’re utterly ignorant
              about the Constitution and the workings of government. And, you’re
              making up words – “non-since”. I’m guessing you meant “nonsense”.

              As far as your pathetic little threat, I live in Phoenix. I’m not hard to find. Make sure your life insurance is paid up.

                I’m really tired of this now so I will just end this by saying thank you for the grammar correction and now that I know your a little paranoid I would come within 10 feet of you. My so called threat was your presumption. Where did I threaten you? I’m also conceal carry so what. You are the one that stated the name calling anyway, so I see no point in continuing this conversation as you have your mind made up and I have mind as well. The simple fact is, the whole political process is corrupt and beyond fixing. The use of our military to take control would be a last ditch effort to save our country from the Washington insiders. It doesn’t matter anymore who you vote for, once they get a taste of the power they have they never want to lose it.Have a nice life.

        Call me names all you want to, but to say all Obama is guilty of is poor judgement. Your the ignorant fool. God, how stupid can you leftist be to want to destroy this country and all it’s done for you. People like you sicken me with your absolute cult like devotion to this movement to set us back for decades,because your feel like to need to equal the playing field. You want a specific charge for treason I can name many. His own Obama care. How can you hold a gun to someones head and tell them they have to buy from the government or else be fined?His absolute lies about Benghazi. His lies about the IRS going after Conservative groups. You sir are so misguided that your are beyond help.When the shite hits the fan, you will be the first to run away and cower. I’m quite sure in another life you were standing front and center saluting Adolf Hitler as he drove by cheering gleefully your Führer, just like you do Obama. I bet you even wet your pants when you see him. PUNK
