Barack Obama engages in "by far the most aggressive assault" on transparency
“'This is by far the most aggressive assault on the inspector general concept since the beginning,' said Paul Light, a New York University professor who has studied the system. 'It’s the complete evisceration of the concept. You might as well fold them down. They’ve become defanged.'”
It's far worse than anything done by George W. Bush, according to Senator Patrick Leahy (D, VT): "The Obama administration’s stance has 'blocked what was once a free flow of information' to the watchdogs, Senator Patrick J. Leahy of Vermont, the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, said at a hearing."
Coverups include possible murders by DEA agents, shooting down of aircraft by DEA, DoJ's "Fast and Furious" operation to ship guns to Mexican drug cartels in order to discredit the Second Amendment, rapes committed by Peace Corps volunteers, as well as malfeasance by EPA, Commerce Department, and the U.S. Postal Service.
Read the article, and then note my prediction: this ongoing scandal will receive no further attention from the mainstream media, which works as a branch of the Democrat Party, nor from the Republican establishment, which has no interest in checking the burgeoning power of the federal government. And further, Obama's fans among the general public will take no notice, and attempts to explain these matters to them, accompanied by evidence, will almost always be rejected. I will put my own prediction to the test over Christmas break, as I have a number of friends who remain Obama loyalists. Expect a report at some point.
