Culture of IntimidationPosted: May 24, 2013
Well isn’t it amazing the altruisms versus real life issues we find in politics – so much in fact that early on in this nation’s prehistory there were so much studied, entire epochs giving reference over to those who would be in power.
The Age of Enlightenment or simply the Enlightenment is the era in Western philosophy, the includes critical, intellectual, and reasoned thought, scientific, and cultural life, centered upon the 18th century, in which reason was advocated as the primary source for legitimacy and authority.
Developing simultaneously in France, Great Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Portugal and the American colonies, the movement was buoyed by Atlantic Revolutions, especially the success of the American Revolution, when breaking free of the British Empire.
As for me whilst I study history with emphasis on the character of humankind, let’s just say that most of us around here are simply derailed by some of the behaviors we see in other people that should know better.
We are of the complete reasoning that this Lois Lerner of the Cincinnati bureau of the IRS, just as with her other colleagues, Douglas Shulman and disgraced former Acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller, and hell Lenny and Squiggy, have been used by the Obama Administration’s well-acknowledged threats of what is referred to as Obama’s culture of intimidation. Interestingly, both said that what the IRS really needs are more people and money to function properly.
With new reports today that the Obama Department of Justice leaked documents intended to smear a whistle blower in the Fast & Furious gun walking scandal. It is now more obvious than ever that this administration has, in the words of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), created a “culture of intimidation” that stretches from the White House down to myriad agencies of the executive branch.
From his language suggesting targeting of enemies to his officials’ attempts to castigate Tea Partiers as economic terrorists, President Obama has presided over an administration that sees his political opponents as unworthy and nasty.
Early in his administration, Obama threatened CEOs of banks, “My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks.” The White House’s regular meetings with non-profit hit group Media Matters are often designed to help target conservative media ranging from Fox News to Rush Limbaugh.
Department of Justice Inspector General, showing that former US Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke leaked documents intended to smear a whistle blower in Fast & Furious, is only the latest revelation on misconduct from DOJ. The DOJ has also targeted Fox News reporter James Rosen over leaks from State Department employee Stephen Jin-Woo Kim; according to Megyn Kelly, and two Fox News staffers.
The IRS’ discrimination against conservative non-profit groups has stunned Americans, but conservatives have known for years that the Obama IRS targets conservatives. Yes…but consider this and the ramifications – the POTUS uses his culture of intimidation techniques that therefore creates entire agencies within his purview to do unquestionably unconstitutional issues with you at the helm.
In a close review of Breitbart’s Big Government site, Mr. Ben Shapiro, goes to extraordinary lengths to show how encompassing Obama’s Culture of Intimidation is in reality and he lists the agencies here.
As young men, moreover as boys, most of us are taught this little cliché: It may take a long time, even a lifetime to build trust; however, it only takes seconds or minutes to watch it crumble.
We can question and question and subpoena as many people possible; yet, in the final analysis the buck will always stop on President Obama.
