Going to be a brief blog post today. But, I just was thinking I had to post on what seems to be a weekly scandal of the week in the Obama Administration. Of course, liberals are asking, "What scandals? All I see is racism." Of course, any criticism of the their precious savior is considered racism. Regardless, the NSA snooping on every American is only the latest in a growing multitude of scandals encircling the Obama presidency. Americans are being spied on when they talk on their cell phones, visiting sites on the internet, instant messaging and any form of communication you can think of these days.
Before Obama, there was this thing called the Bill of Rights. Obama has shown great disdain for them. There has been great outcry from some Americans when Edward Snowden admitted he was the one who spilled the beans to Britain's Guardian newspaper about NSA domestic spying. But, the sad thing, there are Americans (including a lot of politicians) who feel that we must accept a loss of privacy in order to have safety in these terrorist times. By saying that, the terrorists have won. I am disgusted by people who have become sheep when it comes to their rights which so many men and women fought and died to preserve. At this point, I am not going to say Edward Snowden is a hero. But, he is not a villain either. Domestic spying is not constitutional no matter the circumstances. They might as well do away with the 4th Amendment if NSA spying on Americans is legal.
I'm so disgusted by Americans who are like sheep who accept this loss of privacy as a necessary evil. This is a loss of constitutional rights, ladies and gentlemen. You lose one right at a time and eventually, you will be enslaved by the state. As Ben Franklin so eloquently stated, "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Eric Holder is, perhaps, the most controversial Attorney General this nation has had since...well, John Mitchell in the Nixon Administration. There is a correlation there if you look hard enough. Fast and Furious should have been enough to get the man fired. Border Agent Brian Terry was killed by a gun from the gun smuggling operation of the U.S. government. But, now....NOW, he is targeting news reporters with whom the Obama Administration don't like. James Rosen, at Fox News, was a target of Justice Department snooping. Today we learn that Eric Holder went shopping for a judge who finally agreed to a court order allowing the DOJ to obtain Mr. Rosen's emails and other correspondence. Also, the House Judiciary is investigating if Eric Holder lied, under oath, on May 15 when he gave testimony on surveillance of reporters. NBC News reported last week that Eric Holder approved a search warrant that basically labeled James Rosen a co-conspirator in an alleged national security leaks case. Eric Holder has categorically denied being involved in prosecution of the press in any security leak. He could be convicted for perjury for lying to Congress if enough evidence is brought forth.
Attorney General Eric Holder has already been found in Contempt of Congress back in June of 2012. I had thought at the time he would not be able to survive that. I was wrong. It seems that any other President would have fired their Attorney General for such. Again, not President Obama. At that time he was held in contempt for not providing key information on the failed Fast and Furious scandal. There are at least three scandals swirling around the White House that could bring down the Obama Administration. Obamacare is also threatening to destroy the best medical system in the world. The green company scandals, such as Solyndra, will not go away. The Mainstream Media, which has protected President Obama like he was child born of their collective dreams, is starting to come around and are digging away at some of the lies coming out of the White House. Oh, the MSM will still protect Obama. But, Obama decided to come after their own in the AP scandal. That was an eye-opener for the press. I do believe Eric Holder will resign, possibly before the end of this summer. There seems to be more unearthed each week as reporters continue to dig away. President Obama? No way in hell he would ever resign. But, the more the scandals show what a corrupt administration he has, the more it hurts him in his second term agenda. That may be more devastating for Democrats than the President being forced to resign.
