This is a perfect example of a Tyranny.
The government is acting in unison with both parties agreeing. They call this a BI PARTISAN way of governing. This also means that both parties are, in fact, colluding together against the people. The government has become an entity unto itself. IT is an INDUSTRY. It’s INDUSTRY however, has NO product of worth. It’s only job is to take the wealth from those who produce it and distribute that money to entities who would not be able to garner that money otherwise. So, why are they getting that money? We can all agree that the MILITARY and Defense is essential to a country, yet the Politicians have come to an agreement that this is no longer necessary. Thus, our INTERNATIONAL defense has been systematically de-funded. The money, however, stolen and given to the politicians who say that our defense is unnecessary. They have made “agreements” and “treaties” with other countries, therefore the military’s monies can be used in another capacity – or they call something “defense” when it’s really not.
These are the beginnings of a FULL scale tyranny. The likes of which can only be explained by the histories of Russia and China. The magnitude is that large simply because the country is that large and it’s economic prowess is so immense.
This is why the elites vie for a global government, because that is the only way that they can control ALL. The elites are a variety of individuals, and those are the individuals who hold power. Each country has it’s own SET. The elites of each country are a different sort. They are business in the WEST, they are government elites in Communist countries, and they are the Kings and Princess in Monarchies or Sheikh’s (nepotism) in the Middle East. The people who have power. The people who can influence power, such as the media or the HOLLYWOOD types, are garnered by the elite and used as tools and weapons.
Watching the effects of an element on something is how some scientific experiments must be done to discover a new element in the universe. Thus, watching the effects on something, one can begin the process to infer certain truths. One can infer that this government is not acting to the letter of the Constitution, but rather they do what they believe is for the betterment of the people. And while that may, at face value seem noble, it’s not. Who determines what is for the betterment of the people? Who are the PEOPLE? Who gets the benefit? Who becomes the host from which the benefit is derived? And WHY is it someone else that gets to decide who is more worthy of someones life blood (wealth) than that person?
This vermin Issa, should not say “well, the democrats did it and the republicans did it, so lets call it a wash” —Thats the wrong answer.
That is the EFFECT of a government that has become a entity to itself. They are in control of YOU and they are letting YOU understand that YOU have NO say. It doesn’t matter what promises are made or who makes them. They are all in it together, because they know that they are the Government and we are “THE PEOPLE.” The people gave away their power to the overlords, because it was too difficult to self govern.
Issa is doing what comes naturally, because doing the right thing is too hard. Making an example of Obama is too hard. Making an example of the Bush people is too hard. Even though that is the ONLY right thing to do.

This weekend, the Republican Congressman responsible for investigating presidential misconduct said that Barack Obama’s decision to offer a position to Joe Sestak as an incentive for him to drop out of a Democratic primary “was a criminal event under the law” — and that he is going to do absolutely, positively nothing about it.
Rep. Darrell Issa, R-CA, incoming chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, rang in the new year by making a sweep of Sunday talk shows. While appearing on CNN’s State of the Union program, guest hosted by Ed Henry, he walked back several of his criticisms of Barack Obama.
He began by reneging on his words to Rush Limbaugh. Issa told Rush that Barack Obama “has been one of the most corrupt presidents in modern times.” He now says he meant to say “that this is one of the most corrupt administrations.”
He followed up by saying he will not investigate the Joe Sestak affair. Why? Because Republicans had been guilty of the same crime, too. When Henry asked him about an e-mail in which he called the event “Obama’s Watergate,” Issa responded:
ISSA: It is in fact an example of misconduct, in my opinion. Now, what happened throughout this process — and I’ve made this very clear — is we’ve discovered the problem’s bigger than that. It’s bigger than President Obama.
President Bush’s people said we did the same thing. Guess what? It was a criminal event under the law — a criminal event, when President Bush’s people did it, and I don’t know when they did it. They’ve just admitted that they did it…When you offer a position, paid or unpaid, existing statute makes it illegal to offer that job in return for affecting an election. That is — that is something we’ve got to get to stop. The American people do not want ambassadorships or any other position handed out to save a party money.
HENRY: So do you still believe it was “Obama’s Watergate,” the Joe Sestak case?
ISSA: Once we knew, as we discovered, that it turns out that Republicans and previous administrations thought it was OK in spite of the absolute black and white letter of the law, it got bigger — it got bigger than President Obama.
HENRY: So are you going to investigate the Joe Sestak case?
ISSA: No we’re not.
If Darrell Issa believes offering candidates positions to change the outcome of political races is a “criminal event” that “we’ve got to get to stop,” dropping an investigation and preemptively ruling out any consequences is perhaps the least likely way to curtail it. In addition to Sestak, Issa must ignore Andrew Romanoff, who alleges a similar job off. Allowing one (or two, of a half-dozen) administration(s) off-the-hook for felonies will prove as effective at discouraging future violations as acquitting Bill Clinton was at ending presidential lying or taming Bill’s roving eye.
While Issa has a laudable conservative voting record, his vista for investigation has narrowed the closer he came to taking over as chairman. He had previously stated — although he has reaffirmed he believes the president is guilty of “a criminal event” that is felonious — that there is “not a chance at this point” he would push for impeachment. Late last year, Floyd Brown, Chairman of ImpeachObamaCampaign.com, called ruling out impeachment before investigations had even commenced “premature” and a “bad sign of Republican weakness.”Later, Issa went as far as to say, “My job is to make the president a success.”
There are two silver linings to this reversal. First, the president is so fabulously corrupt, so diversely devious, that he has left Congress a veritable cornucopia of offenses to investigate, several of which could lead to impeachment. Second, Issa is not the only Republican with oversight ability — and others do not appear as averse to taking on the administration. To offer a few examples:
Is the Just Department Denying Color-Blind Justice? Issa told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that he had set his sights on Attorney General Eric Holder, listing a litany of his offenses. “He didn’t do anything about ACORN,” Issa noted. “He didn’t do anything effectively about the New Black Panthers.” Issa concluded, “He’s hurting this administration. If you’re hurting the administration, you need to stop hurting the administration or leave.” It seems probable that Eric Holder encouraged the Justice Department to deny justice to certain victims because they are white and the accused are black. It is possible this originated with Barack Obama and extends to every sector of his administration. (His obsession with doling out stealth reparations to minority groups confirms this.) Andrew McCarthy of National Review agreesthis issue merits an investigation.
It seems likely it is not Holder harming Obama but Holder and Obama harming the country. And if that is the case, they must leave.
Issa added another ray of hope in his discussion of the Black Panther Case: “Chairman Lamar Smith, as a civil rights issue, will take that on.” Rep. Smith of Texas will chair the Judiciary Committee. He has proven a cautious voice in favor of investigating the administration’s immigration record. (Smith had shown interest in investigating the Sestak affair, as well.) When pushed by the media, Smith has confirmed he will use his oversight power to hold Obama accountable. “I am committed to working with the Justice Department to ensure that our laws are equally enforced, criminals are prosecuted, and American communities are kept safe,” hesaid. That seems to indicate he will also investigate the president’s refusal to enforce our nation’s immigration laws. The cases of selective enforcement are two signs of the same lawless coin.
Covert Propaganda. Issa’s committee has already produced a 36-page report of potential legal infractions, many of which he has subsidized with your tax dollars. The alleged crimes involve the administration’s use of covert propaganda. Issa’s report lists previous administrations having crossed the same line of illegality, so an inquiry into this charge would present little risk of legal pitfalls. However, he has produced nothing bordering on Obama’s use of propaganda, overtly or covertly, so consistently aimed at snowing a domestic audience. Should they uncover the illegality Issa alleged in his report, those would constitute impeachable offenses. Then Issa and his colleagues should have little timidity in expelling the president from office.
The president has engaged in a multitude of potentially illegal actions that Republican Congressmen know of. The American people deserve to learn about any crimes committed, review the full threat this president and his corrupt administration pose to the U.S. Constitution, and sound off on how they wish to respond to it.
