Obama’s scandals will be historic in their scope
The former occupant of the 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue once made the assertion, echoed by his vice-president, who is now running for president, his administration was without scandal. The fact Barack Hussein Obama was able to say that with a straight face is mind-boggling: Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting of conservative groups, Benghazi. The list is long. But the scandal of scandals is on the horizon, and not even the slick-talking Obama will be able to schmooze his way out of responsibility.
The weaponizing of the bureaucracy and intelligence operations to spy on the campaign of President Donald J. Trump is becoming more and more obvious. That anti-Trump operatives in the FBI, Department of Justice, National Intelligence office, and CIA conspired in a take-down effort is becoming clearer. It was a quiet coup to stop a candidate thought unfit for office (read: not one of them), and once elected, morphed into an effort to unseat him.
Indeed, using the large federal bureaucracy as a weapon against political enemies began almost immediately after Obama became President. Under Attorney-General Eric Holder hired left-wing ideologues into positions in the bureaucracy of the DOJ and FBI, and his homey, Obama did the same in the intelligence agencies. Holder left and the left-wing bent of DOJ was continued under Loretta Lynch.
It is now beyond question that the only Russian conspiracy to effect the election of 2016 was stirred up by the DOJ, Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton Campaign, with the cooperation of the intelligence agencies, which farmed out the espionage to allies, like DI-6 in Great Britain. The entire “Steele Dossier” was used as a pretext for an investigation to discredit Trump, and keep the election going Clinton’s way.
What no one imagined was Trump would win. What became a smear campaign to help Clinton became a smear campaign to unseat the President, and in the process, hide what had been done. That was the reason for the Mueller investigation: hide the antics of the “deep state,” protect Clinton, and give Democrats in Congress a way to impeachment.
With the revelation, last week, that Inspector-General David Horowitz will make a criminal referral concerning former FBI Director James Comey, and further uncovering of evidence by Judicial Watch of the events, the sordid affair finally will be unmasked and people will be indicted. Attorney-General William Barr will soon be de-classifying information that will further show the complicity of the Obama Administration, and the pains it took to emasculate a Trump presidency. It almost worked.
So, Mr. Obama, rather than being head of one of the cleanest administrations in history will have his name right up there with Harding and Buchanan. Golden words will not smooth over the corruption he oversaw, nor the infestation of political vermin he allowed.
The current toxic nature of the political climate is aides, to be sure, by the blunt words of Trump. But the lunatic reaction to those words, the sheer violence of the opposition is a product of the Obama presidency. He worked hard with his gaggle of America haters to “fundamentally transform” the nation. Instead, he will be relegated to the dustbin of history as a political miscreant and attempted destroyer of our traditions, laws and national identity. All we can say is “Bring it on.”
