The above Youtube is an excerpt of Obama’s commencement address at Ohio State on May 5, just days before the IRS and AP scandals broke. The cynicism and hypocrisy of his words are truly epic. Obama is all about tyranny and all about a sinister big government that is hell-bent on using our tax dollars to take away our freedoms. If you can’t stand the sound of Dear Leader’s voice, here is the transcript of what he said.

Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.

Now this is straight from the White House. “The Law Is Irrelevant”

For anyone who took the time to watch the Eric Holder and/or IRS hearings this week, the corruption, incompetence and arrogance of the ruling parasite elite class was on full display.  Eric Holder and Steven Miller, chief executives of the Department of Injustice and the IRS respectively, testified before Congress as to their utter cluelessness and unaccountability of the nefarious goings on in the powerful agencies that they run. Steven Miller’s testimony was by far the most interesting. He testified to Congress that IRS persecution of groups of people of a particular political view is not illegal. He further testified that questioning  individuals as to the subject matter of their prayers was not improper. When asked “what would make a difference in ending the unlawful practices of the IRS?”, Miller stated that he simply needed a bigger budget. Unbelievable stuff. Holder’s testimony was not nearly as entertaining. He simply testified that he either didn’t know or couldn’t remember anything about anything that was asked of him. Both of these bureaucrats made it perfectly clear that they are above the law and are not accountable to you commoners. In fact, Steven Miller wants you to know that he views us taxpaying bumpkins as his “customers”.  EXCUSE ME, ASSHOLE!  I AM NOT YOUR CUSTOMER!  YOU WORK FOR ME AND I’M THE ONE WHO PAYS YOUR SALARY!

We need to have every cabinet secretary testify before Congress and explain their relevance and reason for existence. The former EPA Secretary needs to explain how she used bogus emails to circumvent Freedom of Information inquiries. The Department of Energy does not produce or create energy yet its 2013 budget is $27 Billion. The Department of Education does not produce or create education yet its 2013 budget is $68.9 Billion. Those 2 departments do nothing but create onerous regulations and indoctrinate socialist dogma into our youth. They should both be abolished. BTW, whatever happened to Hot Tub Bub of the GSA?

    At first the War on Drugs made Criminals out of half the Country.
    Now the War on Terror is making Criminals out of the rest the Country.

    When you go to sleep a free man and wake up as a criminal without doing anything… That’s the definition of tyranny. :evil:

    Obama makes a better arguement against Big Government than Romney bothered to articulate in his campaign. This from the IRS is exactly the kind of abuse that people are afraid of in their government. If the IRS had less power (i.e. the government was smaller), then there would be less to fear. Obama clearly intends to cover this up. If he really wanted to get t o the bottom of this, it would already be done. We now know that the government knew there was a problem since before the last election. Obama has been sitting on this, and it is only out now because Obama is hop[ing to sdistract from Benghazi. There is something worse in Benghazi than abuse of power by the IRS.

    IRS In Cincinnati: “Everything Comes From The Top; There Has To Be A Directive”

    As could be expected, the folks in the determinations unit on Main Street have had trouble concentrating this week. Number crunchers, whose work is nonpolitical, don’t necessarily enjoy the spotlight, especially when the media and the public assume they’re engaged in partisan villainy.

    “We’re not political,’’ said one determinations staffer in khakis as he left work late Tuesday afternoon. “We people on the local level are doing what we are supposed to do. . . . That’s why there are so many people here who are flustered. Everything comes from the top. We don’t have any authority to make those decisions without someone signing off on them. There has to be a directive.”


  5. 5 | May 19, 2013 2:34 pm

    @ Bumr50:

    Check this out:

    I guess this is one way to defuse a scandal: pretend it’s just not that important.

    Hillary Clinton wondered what difference it made whether we got to the truth of what happened in Benghazi. Now we have White House aide Dan Pfieffer saying it was “irrelevant” where the president was during the attack.

    Weekly Standard has the transcript of a Fox News Sunday interview with Pfeiffer by Chris Wallace:

    WALLACE: let’s turn to benghazi. he had a meeting with panetta in the afternoon, heard about this on an unrelated subject, wanted them to deploy forces as soon as possible. the next time he shows up, hillary clinton says she spoke to him at around 10:00 that night after the attack at the consulate, not the annex, but the attack at the consulate had ended. question, what did the president do the rest of that night to pursue benghazi?

    PFEIFFER: the president was kept up to do throughout the entire night, from the moment it started till the end. this is a horrible tragedy, people that he sent abroad whose lives are in risk, people who work for him. i recognize that there’s a series of conspiracy theories the republicans are spinning about this since the night it happened, but there’s been an independent review of this, congress has held hearings, we provided 250,000 pages of — 250,000 pages of documents up there. there’s been 11 hearings, 20 staff briefings. everyone has found the same thing. this is a tragedy. the question is not what happened that night. the question is what are we going to do to move forward and ensure it doesn’t happen again? congress should act on what the president called for earlier this week, to pass legislation to actually allow us to implement the recommendations of the accountability review board. when we send diplomats off into far-flung places, there’s inherent risk. we need to mitigate that risk.

    WALLACE: with all due respect, you didn’t answer my question. what did the president do that night?

    PFEIFFER: kept up to date with the events as they were happening.

    WALLACE: he didn’t talk to the secretary of state except for the one time when the first attack was over. he didn’t talk to the secretary of defense, he didn’t talk to chiefs. the chairman of the joint who was he talking to?

    PFEIFFER: his national security staff, his national security council.

    WALLACE: was he in the situation room?

    PFEIFFER: he was kept up to date throughout the day.

    WALLACE: do you know know whether he was in the situation room?

    PFEIFFER: i don’t know what room he was in that night. that’s a largely irrelevant fact.

    WALLACE: well –

    PFEIFFER: the premise of your question, somehow there was something that could have been done differently, okay, that would have changed the outcome here. the accountability roof board has looked at this, people have looked at this. it’s a horrible tragedy, and we have to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

    Wallace is about the only journalist who won’t accept the “doesn’t matter” mantra from the administration.

    SO this clown doesn’t know what Obama was doing that night? I really don’ tknow which would be worse: that he simply didn’t care that the outpost was under attack and went ot bed or that he watched the whole thing from the Situation Room and ordered the military to stand down rather than relieve them. I’d say it could be either of those, but it pretty much has to be one of them. I doubt that it was anything in between. Obama is playing that he is completely disengaged from his administration. That could be true. He may not do much as President day to day. We know he golfs a lot. BUt he is an idealogue. He had to know that Benghazi was a big deal when it was happening. I find it hard to believe that during a terrorist attack on September 11 he just turned it all over to functionaries and went to bed.

    That is the way I understand it. Mid-level functionaries don’t do anything for themselves. They pass orders down from on high. Who gave the orders? Like RIX and I were speculating on the other thresad, it was probably somebody close to the President, but not the President himselfg. Obama wouldn’t take the risk of getting caught actually giving these kinds of orders. Obama is allergic to responsibility. He’d duck on giving these orders, but he’d approve of them being given.

    @ Iron Fist:

    I’m watching the rebroadcast of Fox News Sunday right now. Pfeiffer’s performance was amazing, particularly the way he kept telling Wallace what “the real question” is. Wallace should have said, “With all due respect, I’m the one conducting the interview, so the question is whatever I say it is.”

    Just read yesterday that Woodward is going to pursue Benghazi and possibly the other scandals.

    That’s what we need, reporters that feel they have little to lose. He’s already been rejected by the left for things he said the last couple years, so he doesn’t really care how it falls.

    He did mention that this is worse than Watergate, and he would know.

    Will the Law of Unintended consequences come back and bite these Idiots in the ass??

    Town Sued for Requiring Residents to Own Guns

    The tiny town of Nelson, Georgia, is facing a court battle after passing a law that requires all households to own a gun and ammunition. The DC-based Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence had filed a federal lawsuit against the town on the grounds that the law, which was passed in April, is unconstitutional, and violates the 1st and 14th Amendments, reports CNN. “Forcing residents to buy guns they do not want or need won’t make the City of Nelson or its people any safer, and only serves to increase gun sales and gun industry profits,” said a spokesman in a statement.

    “…Forcing residents to buy guns they do not want or need
    won’t make the City of Nelson or its people any safer, and
    only serves to increase gun sales and gun industry profits…”
    -
    Substitute “health insurance” for “guns”.
    -
    “…Forcing residents to buy health insurance they do not want or need
    won’t make the City of Nelson or its people any safer, and
    only serves to increase health insurance sales and health insurance industry profits…”

    All they have to do is call it a tax and it is apparently perfectly ok. Just ask John Roberts. :wink:

    The ordinance in the town of Nelson, population 1,300, contains no penalties, has exemptions for felons and the mentally ill and allows anyone to opt out.

    Actually isn’t enforced, unlike Obamacare no one will go to jail over this rule.

    More gun control for uber-regulated California:

    A hotly contested gun-control law that was passed in 2007 is finally ready to be implemented, Attorney General Kamala Harris said Friday: a requirement that every new semiautomatic handgun contain “micro-stamping” technology that would allow police to trace a weapon from cartridges found at a crime scene.

    The law, signed by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, made California the first state to require micro-stamping, which engraves the gun’s serial number on each cartridge. But the legislation specified that it would take effect only when the technology was available and all private patents had expired.

    The gun owners’ group Calguns Foundation tried to forestall the law at one point by paying a $555 fee in an attempt to extend a patent held by the inventor, who wanted it to lapse. Gun manufacturers said the technology was expensive and ineffective, and a National Rifle Association lawyer has threatened a lawsuit.

    But at a Los Angeles news conference Friday, Harris announced that micro-stamping had cleared all technological and patenting hurdles and would be required on newly sold semiautomatics, effective immediately.

    “The patents have been cleared, which means that this very important technology will help us as law enforcement in identifying and locating people who have illegally used firearms,” Harris said.

    How big is the legal gun market in California? I kno wthat most dealers on Gun Broker won’t ship there. Is there enough money there for manufacturers to tool up to meet this requirement? No other state in the union requires this, and it is highly unlikely that it will become a national requirement, no matter how much Obama may want it.

    Um…yeah. As long as they actually bought the guns legally. Which they don’t.

    And as long as they don’t pick up their brass.


  21. 21 | May 19, 2013 3:06 pm

    @ lobo91:

    Yeah, if you finish reading the article, they don’t expect the gun manufacturers to comply with this. It is a de facto ban on semiautomatics in California. The NRA intends to challenge it. They’ll be busy what with New York’s new law and this. It’ll be interesting to see what the current Supreme Court thinks about this. Whatever Jarett may think of it, if Kennedy, Scalia, Roberts, Alito, and Thomas stay on the Court, their chances of ruling by dcree take a major hit. They may have to SC Justices ready to go, but they don’t have two vacancies to fill.

    Another IRS abuse story.
    IRS sued for seizing 60 million medical records.

    A healthcare provider has sued the Internal Revenue Service and 15 of its agents, charging they wrongfully seized 60 million medical records from 10 million Americans.

    The name of the provider is not yet known, United Press International said. But Courthouse News Service said the suit claims the agency violated the Fourth Amendment in 2011, when agents executed a search warrant for financial data on one employee – and that led to the seizure of information on 10 million, including state judges.

    The search warrant did not specify that the IRS could take medical information, UPI said. And information technology officials warned the IRS about the potential to violate medical privacy laws before agents executed the warrant, the complaint said, as reported by UPI.

    “Despite knowing that these medical records were not within the scope of the warrant, defendants threatened to ‘rip’ the servers containing the medical data out of the building if IT personnel would not voluntarily hand them over,” the complaint states, UPI reported.

    The suit also says IRS agents seized workers’ phones and telephone data – more violations of the warrant, UPI reported.

    Interesting quote from ‘The Market Ticker’.

    “Those of you who seek leaders are fools; each of you should lead for yourself and confine that leadership to yourself and your life along with those dependent upon you through acts of your own free choice, enjoying or suffering the consequences of those choices.

    Your right to lead in that regard ends as soon as you demand that someone else pay for whatever it is that you want to acquire or suffer as a consequence of your actions and inactions, whether it be food, shelter, education, health care or anything else.

    The first principle behind The Declaration is that we are a nation governed by laws, not men, with each such law that is valid and enforceable being able to be tied back all the way to The Declaration through The Constitution.

    The Declaration sets forth the reason why although rights are absolute societies organize governments — it is for the purpose of providing a framework of laws to enforce those rights and punish violators. Absent that you have only the law of the jungle, where the individual with the biggest teeth, claws and body mass wins while everything else is food.

    That is what you have in the absence of the rule of law, and that is what we have collectively and individually allowed to occur in this country. All of the above has occurred because we have regressed to The Law of the Jungle from The Rule of Law.”

    Not talking about the people on this blog, of course!

    Today I was at a gun show in Ruidoso and was having a conversation with an old guy at the American Legion booth. They were auctioning off a shotgun. Anyhoo, I was telling the guy that I was one of the last 2000 people drafted. He said “that’s interesting” and then told me that a guy who came into the show yesterday said “I’m the guy who started the Viet Nam War”. He then went on to say that he was the navigator of the USS Turner Joy, the ship that accompanied the USS Maddox into the Gulf of Tonkin back in 1964. He sent some of the first radio reports of the supposed attack by supposed North Vietnamese gunboats. That fella actually lives here in Ruidoso.

    Jindal: IRS Officials Involved in Scandal Should Go to Jail

    IRS officials who tagged conservative political organizations should be sent to prison, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says.

    “You cannot take the freedom of law-abiding Americans, whether you disagree with them or not, and keep your own freedom” the Republican governor plans to tell Virginia Republicans at their convention later Saturday. “When you do that, you go to jail.”

    Those are the big questions. We know Obama is lying and covering up, but we really don’t know what they are covering up. Benghazi is the thing to watch. They deliberately blew the lid on the IRS scandal to distract from Benghazi. Whatever they are hiding about Benghazi is worse than mere incompetance. I still think it was Fast and Furious Middle East edition, running guns to al Qaeda in Syria. That is kind of the floor of the scandal, though. It could be a lot worse than that.

    From Canadafreepress.com; Holder will never appoint a special counsel to investigate IRS, F&F, Benghazi, etc.

    “It used to be that Congress could appoint its own special counsel to investigate crimes by the federal government, but in 1999 that power was reassigned to the Department of Justice. Considering Holder has made a career of ignoring blatant abuses of power by the Obama administration, including scandals like the illegal firing of Inspector General Gerald Walpin and the EPA’s use of fake email accounts to get around FOIA laws, the likelihood of the Attorney General initiating an investigation of Fast and Furious, which he is personally involved in up to his eyeballs, or the use of the IRS to intimidate political opponents is so miniscule as to not even be worthy of consideration.

    The best option to get to the bottom of Fast and Furious and the IRS scandal is for Congress to take a page out of the Nixon playbook. Like Obama, President Nixon wasn’t keen on having a special prosecutor poking around his affairs. Following the linking of the Watergate burglars to White House officials, the U.S. Senate refused to confirm Nixon’s appointment of Elliot Richardson as Attorney General until he agreed to authorize a special prosecutor. Nixon eventually caved to the Senate’s demand and the rest is history.”

    Gun running they could get away with, with the help of the media and a friendly senate. They might have even been able to get away with exchanging the Blind Sheik for our Ambassador as a possible October surprise. But there is no way in hell they could have gotten away with getting our Ambassador killed in a campaign stunt gone bad.

    Israel is in a bad neighborhood, so it’s stuck with hostilities from Syria. I never wanted Daffy Khaddafi replaced. Same with Mubarak. The powers that be want a de-stabilized Middle East.

    Obama: Americans Still Racist Against Blacks, Hispanics, Gays, Muslims…

    President Obama on Sunday summoned the graduates of historically black Morehouse College to “transform the way we think about manhood,” urging the young men to avoid the temptation to make excuses and to take responsibility for their families and their communities.

    Delivering a commencement address at the all-male private liberal arts college in Atlanta, Obama spoke in deeply personal terms about the “special obligation” he feels as a black man to help those left behind.

    “There but for the grace of God, I might be in their shoes,” Obama said. “I might have been in prison. I might have been unemployed. I might not have been able to support a family — and that motivates me.”

    Yeah…because the unemployment rate for black Harvard Law graduates is so high.

    Obama Administration Behind Another Leak, Hanging Israel Out To Dry, Putting Them In Greater Danger

    The Justice Department’s seizure of Associated Press reporters’ phone records was reportedly one element of a “sweeping” federal investigation to find out who leaked classified information about a failed Al-Qaeda plot to bomb an American airliner.

    Now, the Obama administration has reportedly apologized to Israel for another leak of classified information to the media, one that occurred earlier this month and which Israeli officials are concerned could place Israeli lives at risk.

    Israel Radio’s diplomatic correspondent Chico Menashe reported Sunday morning (via the Jerusalem Post):

    American officials apologized to their Israeli counterparts for confirming that Israel was behind the airstrikes on the Damascus airport earlier this month, Israel Radio reported on Sunday.

    The confirmation reportedly came from the lower ranks at the Pentagon, and the reasons for the leak are being investigated.

    Menashe tweeted: “The U.S. has apologized to Israel for leaking details of the attack in Syria. Senior administration officials said to their [Israeli] counterparts that they are examining the issue and that low-level [officials] were responsible for the leak.”

    Low-level officials. Yeah, right.
