Liberal Hypocrisy

http://nypost.com/2014/08/03/after-40-years-john-dean-re-examines-nixon-tapes-18-minute-gap/
Richard Nixon




In June of 1973, the tapes used to record conversation in the oval office, revealed an 18-minute gap. The speculation was wild when investigators, as well as Democratic Senators and representatives, began to speculate that Nixon had revealed his involvement in the Watergate break-in. Watergate did not cost anyone their lives and there have always been questions as to why Nixon ran such a risk, since he won by a landslide, however, Nixon resigned rather than be impeached.

Fast forward to 2015, and we have a former Secretary of State, who decided that it was up to her which emails would be released and what would be considered the people’s business. This morning, to compound insult to injury, a Democrat talking head said, “The people have heard Hillary’s explanation and have forgiven her.” Seriously, exactly how was that determined? Did they run a poll or two in the HuffPo, WaPo, Salon, Slate, or the Daily Kos to come up with that information?

Just as Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, Jesse Jackson, and McGovern have shown about their attempts to negotiate with foreign leaders, it’s different when the GOP writes a letter to simply inform the Iranians about the terms under-which our government works. Now, Hillary has decided she is not guilty of any wrong doing and everyone is supposed to say, “Alrighty then” and walk away.

James Carville has decided that the whole thing is the GOP getting all into Hillary’s business prior to her run for president. None of the talking heads seem to remember that the Benghazi investigation has been pushed and pushed aside again, for the benefit of the Democrats retaining the White House. The Democrats have played fast and loose with people’s lives and now it’s payday.

Simply stated, Watergate did not kill anyone and the Democrats managed to impeach a president. Hillary got 4 men killed (or had them killed) and everyone is supposed to be fine with that. It’s not alright. The families of the 4 men killed deserve to know why their loved ones had to die and what happened that night.

The liberal hypocrisy is oozing through the cracks; while they would have their willing low-info voters believe that 47 Senators committed a crime.

Hillary’s Emails v Senate Letter to Iran v Ferguson Officers Shooting



Last night, two officers were shot and wounded in Ferguson during another night of protesting. For 8 months, the town of Ferguson has been under a watchful eye and a portion of a much larger agenda by the Obama administration. In the course of 2 weeks, 3 officers have died and 2 have been wounded in the line of duty, but still Obama and Holder continue to fan the flames of racism with speeches intended to do just that. At what point is enough, enough? How many more good men have to die before Obama and Holder stop what they’re doing?

Today, the Daily Kos published a piece expressing that the 47 senators have committed an illegal act according to the Constitution. They did not have the permission of the government to negotiate with the Iranian government. Point of fact, the 47 senators were not negotiating with the Iranians. They informed the Iranian government that any deal made between Obama and Iran and not ratified by congress, might not be viewed as valid under the next administration. There were no proposals or negotiating in the letter. Are we to believe that the Daily Kos and their adviser assume that Barack Obama is the Government?

Good to know that the liberals assume an equal branch of the government to be just a bunch of men only allowed to do their jobs if they have sought Barack Obama’s permission.

Meanwhile, Clinton who stated that she did not carry on any government business with her private email account/server. However, she also stated that she had only the one email account. She did not sign an out-going statement that she had handed over all papers and information pertaining to her time as Secretary of State, to the government when she left the office.

She also has said that Bill Clinton set up the server for his personal use; however, he has said that over the years, he’s only sent two emails. A timeline on that information shows that Bill didn’t set up the server. So, okay?

Yesterday, those who know the Clinton’s have said that Bill blames Barack Obama for the leaked information and claims it is a plot by him to stop Hillary’s dreams of the White House. Although it’s amusing to watch liberals eat their own, it doesn’t help information become more available.

Another point to note, the liberals do not care if a thing is a lie. They don’t care that Democrats—John Kerry, McGovern, and Jesse Jackson—have taken it upon themselves to negotiate with foreign governments under Republican administrations. They don’t care that Hillary put herself and government officials from other nations at risk by using a personal email. They don’t care that racial speeches given by Barack Obama and Eric Holder are getting good men killed. They just don’t care, because the bigger picture—complete control—is all that matters to them. 


Which of these stories deserves more air time? What matters most, and how many more scandals and deaths before the nation, as a whole, collapses in on itself? 


Those of us, who pray, are offering prayers for the families of the slain police officers, and asking God to end this stupidity.

Congressional Authority and the Logan Act



The Logan Act was written during Sam Addams administration and has been ratified. The act itself was meant to keep private citizens from negotiating with foreign governments. Joe Q. Public cannot negotiate any agreement with a foreign government without the expressed permission of the United States government. Congressmen and women are not private citizens. They are elected representatives of the people and share equal power with the Executive and Judicial branches, although that has not been apparent under the Obama administration.

The Logan Act:
    The clear intent of this provision [Logan Act] is to prohibit unauthorized persons from intervening in disputes between the United States and foreign governments. Nothing in section 953 [Logan Act], however, would appear to restrict members of the Congress from engaging in discussions with foreign officials in pursuance of their legislative duties under the Constitution.

Treason is not the undermining of presidential authority. Congress does not swear an oath to the president, but to the Constitution of the United States and by doing so, and oath to the people. In fact, the president swears an oath to the United States, as does ever military man or woman. In our Republic, an oath to the Constitution is as binding as any other law and failure to serve it faithfully  is a punishable offense.

The letter sent to Iran did not express any will to undermine Obama’s agreement; it simply stated that if the agreement was not ratified through congress, it would be treated as an Executive Order. The next president to enter the oval office could and might do away with any agreement Obama made with Iran. The letter was a statement of fact. No threats were made, and no negotiations ensued.

There have been private interlopers who have not been punished, such as Jesse Jackson and the governments of Cuba and Nicaragua, etc. Although he was a private citizen, he was never prosecuted and it was not labeled treason. It is an unlawful act, however, to date, Jackson has not been prosecuted and it’s unlikely that he will. This is just one example, but the key phrase is private citizen. When we elect representatives, they are endowed with powers very unlike those of the average citizen.

Had the liberals taken a minute to do a simple search on google, they would have known that nothing illegal transpired as congress addressed the concerns of this nation. Many things are written in legalese, but that does not make them impossible to read or decipher. The Logan Act is quite clear in its intent.

The Logan Act will not punish those who have not violated the act and with Jackson’s actions it doesn’t appear those who violate will face punishment, either.

Future Telecommunications: How the FCC assumed authority over the Internet



In 1996, Bill Clinton changed the Telecommunications Act. The bill was rewritten and Reed Hundt—the former chairman of the FCC—had this to say, “The new law assumes that all parts of the communications marketplace can be made competitive. The new law is intended to end the era of big government in communications and begin the era of genuine competition.”

Simply stated, it was never meant to hand the internet over lock, stock, and barrel to the president to do with as he pleases. In fact, the internet is not specified in section (706) which Senator Cornyn says gives the government authority over it.
Sec. 706
(a)
General
---The Commission and each State commission with regulatory jurisdiction over telecommunications services shall encourage the deployment on a reasonable and timely basis of advanced telecommunications capability to all Americans (including and in particular, elementary and secondary schools and classrooms) by utilizing, in a manner consistent with the public interest, convenience, and necessity, price cap regulation, regulatory forbearance, measures that promote competition in the local telecommunications market, or other regulating methods that remove barriers to infrastructure investment.
(b)The Commission shall, within 30 months after the date of enactment of this Act, and regularly thereafter, initiate a notice to inquiry concerning the availability of advanced telecommunications capability to all Americans (including, in particular, elementary and secondary schools and classrooms) and shall complete the inquiry within 180 days after its initiation. In the inquiry, the Commission shall determine whether advanced telephone communications capability is being deployed to all Americans in a reasonable and timely fashion. If the Commission’s determination is negative, it shall take immediate action to accelerate deployment of such capability by removing barriers to infrastructure investment by promoting competition in the telecommunications market.
(d) Definition of Advanced Telecommunications Capability: without regard to any transmission media or technology, as high-speed (remember all internet was dial up at this time), switched, broadband telecommunications (it’s talking about radio) capability that enables users to originate and receive high-quality voice, data, graphics, and video telecommunications using any technology.

Basically, the Telecommunications Act governed phone, television, and radio services/utilities. At first glance—knowing that some of the terms are used today for internet—it appears that it is talking about the internet, however, the WWW (World Wide Web) that we know today, did not come into being until 1996-1998 after the bill was written (Arpanet was a much smaller and more expensive net system and not mentioned). Future telecommunications is a very broad term. Wireless communication was governed by the CTIA until recently…so wirless is not even mentioned in the paragraph above, and cell phones used in the 90s were for the most part dependent upon external wired gear.

In very broad terms, your future communications on the phone could be misconstrued as falling under the FCC’s power/governance, and some of it does, even now. Fortunately for Obama, he has the NSA spying on all phone users and has done away with the prerequisite warrant issue—that pesky little bit insuring our privacy in the Constitution as a God-given right. This is rather like the case in congress over Obamacare now; it was meant to do one thing and is being used to give power that was never issued.

Also, it would seem that there would be a need for Obama and his minions to work in-concert with state regulatory commissions, rather than a bill drawn up to suit his highness’ taste and passed by 5 members (3 Democrats and 2 Republicans) of congress. In fact, we have not had representation by our congressmen/women or by our state regulatory commissions in the matter of net neutrality.

Also, one other thing to note while reading the Telecommunications Act is that nowhere does it say that all Americans will receive service for free, but under a price regulation cap. When the government demands that All American’s are to have equal access to the internet, it does mean that some should pay while others are given their service off the backs of subscribers.

Under Obama, laws and acts have been changed without Constitutional process. And so the word comes now that he plans to federalize the police departments, and create climate control laws through EO. Executive Orders are at best, barely legal and Obama is using them to make law. The President of the United States does not have the power to make, alter, or declare a law no longer valid, on his own accord. His power is to suggest and to sign law into existence, or to veto what he feels is inappropriate, such as 40-thousand jobs for American citizens (Keystone Pipeline).

Obama has given—given himself??—powers not allotted a president, because the founding fathers knew too much power corrupts and becomes tyrannical. Obama is a tyrant and now he has used the Telecommunications Act to alter yet another portion of our lives.

The Private Email Story: Yet another dog and pony show

What Difference Does it Make?


There’s no point in discussing whether or not Hillary Clinton will do time for a federal crime. That’s like pee-ing in the wind and hoping nothing gets on you, and it’s not relevant. This is a well-orchestrated fantasy tale manufactured by the spin-machine.

We went through 2 years of Lois Lerner’s lost emails. Her computer, so she said, “Crashed”. To wit, who cares? Anyone who has ever used emails knows that a computer crash won’t wipe out your emails. They’re kept on a server. A server can pull up anyone’s emails, at any time. If the committee wants to see Clinton’s personal emails, then subpoena the server. It’s just that simple.

However, the emails they’re looking for did go through a government email-server. The Clinton’s have made a living off a sure bet that they would never do time for any crimes they have committed. They are Democrat royalty and are as Teflon as Obama. Were the emails the investigative committee needs, to surface, Barack Obama would get drug down the toilet with Clinton and that just won’t do. Clinton—living in a delusional land of lunacy—believes she will be the first female president.

Barack—living in a well-constructed media bubble of protection—is not about to be found out, and he’s not looking to leave the White House anytime soon.

Quit looking over there. The truth is out there. Not in some X-Files Bluebook, but in the government server where all things corrupt and criminal get lost. The Clinton team in-concert with the media and Dear Leader are playing everyone for saps. Of course it’s not that hard since the Republicans would rather be saps than standup guys.

I believe that Trey Gowdy is trying to get to the truth, but in the United States that’s like looking for a needle in a haystack wearing plungers on both hands. Truth does not always will-out, and John Stewart—the commie comic—has jump-started the Matrix feed with jokes about the private emails. The loyal Gruber voting base doesn’t care that Hillary and Barack killed good men to cover up one more scandal--it's not like it's Hillary's first kill. All they care about is feeding at the trough of freebies!

Benghazi is this generations JFK Assassination. We will all die before the truth is found. Hopefully, that will be a death from natural causes.

Welcome to the latest dog and pony show from an administration that counts on the real story never seeing the light of day, much less a court room.
