Obama has displayed disdain for transparency & rule of law

  • Published in Letters
To the editor,
Remember way back in January 2009 when our president made his "heartfelt promise", that "transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstone of this presidency"? Remember when he "disremembered" that pledge and signed his very first bill into law? The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was not posted online for five days, nor even one minute prior to his signature.
Since then, this administration has been shrouded in more clandestine fog and secrecy than a vintage Dracula movie. The economic and moral life blood is being sucked out of this once vibrant nation by Barack "Stonewall" Obama and his loyal, bully bureaucrats from the Beltway. Move over,  Bela Lugosi and Christopher Lee, there's a new actor in town playing the count and he's injected a deadly dose of contempt for conservatives into his corrosive, rogue agencies. Being loyal progressive soldiers, they intrinsically know their marching orders. No explicit directives or signatures are needed from the POTUS. No smoking gun will be found, for it's the Marxist, new world order way.
All the scandals, alleged or not, have been covered up to the point that even some of the, "gasp" mainstream media have expressed their displeasure. Michelle Malkin cleverly has declared this the "Summer of Belated Epiphanies". Though I suspect by late summer, the MSM will have forgotten those "enlightened moments" and will return to providing excellent cover, remembering their role as lapdogs for "he who shall remain either "clueless" or "not responsible".
A trip down the memory lane "tunnel of transparency" seems in order does it not? The Affordable Care Act was passed in the most sneaky and partisan of ways, written vaguely and in code and read by no one and likely to become the biggest scandal of all. A $900 billion stimulus package that didn't stimulate anything, but provided payback to a myriad of Obama backers.
If the entire progressive world cared one whit about knowing who President Obama was before anointing him the savior of the free world, they might have displayed the slightest concern about our dear leader's mysteriously sealed past. Frank Marshall Davis, Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers, much ado about nothing. A deafening silence about his college days, applications, grades, financial assistance and foreign student visas.
President Obama has displayed complete disdain for transparency and the rule of law. When he haughtily proclaims, "there is no there there", he is not being truthful. Some say he is telling flat out lies. Digest the facts and decide for yourself. Our former Secretary of State proclaims, "At this point, what difference does it make?" Madam Secretary, finding out the truth makes all the difference in the world. Attorney General Eric Holder's lawless obstructionist acts in relation to the DC Voting Rights issue, Black Panther Party voting rights case, Fast & Furious, Solyndra green boondoggle bankruptcy and his refusal to prosecute black on white crime are all gob smacking mind blowers. And his Sergeant Schultz "I no nothing" act with regard to the most recent barrel of scandal/cover ups is nothing short of reprehensible for someone assigned as the chief law enforcement officer of this Constitutional Republic. He must resign now.
Have we crossed the rubicon into progressive, soft tyranny? Can we resurrect the 1st and 4th Amendments? Is it time to man the life boats? Where else would we go? Will the likes of Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson and other true blue conservatives be able to rescue us from this massive erosion of our liberties and awaken their Republican counterparts from their wimpy and complacent slumber? Will the mass of citizenry stand up and fight against this dictatorial onslaught or will Edmund Burke's warning come to pass — "The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion". We shall soon find out, won't we?!
