Homes Raided, Subpoenas Issued Targeting Conservative Groups And Allies Of Scott Walker

 

 

 

” In Wisconsin, dozens of conservative groups and allies of Gov. Scott Walker are undergoing political intimidation from the left at the hands of a special prosecutor.

Subpoenas have been issued demanding correspondence and donor information of right-leaning organizations and individuals and raids have been conducted resulting in law enforcement officers taking computers and files in a secret investigation, according to reports.

“In recent weeks, special prosecutor Francis Schmitz has hit dozens of conservative groups with subpoenas demanding documents related to the 2011 and 2012 campaigns to recall Governor Walker and state legislative leaders,” the Wall Street Journal writes.”

 

    The use of taxpayer funds and taxpayer salaried employees to stifle political opponents is something more akin to banana republics than our “representative” type of government , yet here it is on display yet again , this time at the state level . 

 

” “A person who has seen one of the Wisconsin search warrants tells us that the warrants were executed based on the request of Dean Nickel, who filed an affidavit for probable cause.,” the WSJ reported. “Mr. Nickel is a former head of the Wisconsin Department of Justice Public Integrity Unit and has worked as an investigator for the GAB. Mr. Nickel told us he is a contractor for the GAB but wouldn’t discuss the John Doe probe. GAB Director and General Counsel Kevin Kennedy declined to comment.”

While gagged by provisions and the subpoenas, a source close to Watchdog.org told the Wisconsin Reporter they believe this is a taxpayer funded campaign simply for opposition research purposes.”

 

 

   Richard M Nixon may be the first politician that comes to mind when one thinks “enemies lists” but Obama and the Dem’s of the 21st century are showing him to be the rank amateur that he really was . Opposition research has never been so expensive to the American taxpayer as it has become under Obama .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IRS Official Lois Lerner To Plead The 5th – Update: Statement From Issa’s Office

 

 

 

” According to the LA Times, which obtained the letter Tuesday, Lerner’s attorney, William W. Taylor 3rd, wrote to committee chairman Darrell Issa to request that Lerner be excused from appearing before the committee.  Taylor explained that with the criminal investigation launched by the Department of Justice, Lerner’s appearance would have no purpose other than to “embarrass or burden her.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Obama Objective: To Control The News

 

 

 

 

” For awhile, it looked like the White House wanted just to control “the narrative.” But its seizure of AP phone records and surveillance of Fox employees now show its real aim: to control the news.

The Obama political team at the White House has always prided itself on its media savvy. After all, they got a candidate with an otherwise unsalable socialist past elected on a campaign that sold his personality, not his platform.

But it turns out their mastery of the press went a lot deeper than just the political arts. The latest news that the Justice Department investigated Fox News reporter James Rosen and two other newsmen in the normal course of their investigative reporting on a national security matter — coming on the heels of their seizure of Associated Press phone records — suggests an administration obsessed with controlling the news itself with a heavy hand reminiscent of totalitarian regimes.”

 

 

 

 

 

GOP Lawmakers Threaten To Subpoena Benghazi Survivors

 

 

 

 

” Republican lawmakers are threatening to subpoena U.S. survivors of the terrorist attack in Benghazi.

Exasperated GOP members say unless they get more answers from the White House, they will call on the survivors to testify before Congress, and might hold up President Obama’s nomination to replace the U.S. ambassador who was killed on Sept. 11, 2012 in Libya.

The recent revelation that U.S. survivors are recuperating at Walter Reed Hospital has sparked GOP demands that the White House provide Congress with access to them. It has also breathed new life into the controversy that was highlighted repeatedly during the 2012 presidential campaign.”

     The republican leadership has really dropped the ball on this . It should have been readily apparent months ago that the administration has absolutely no intention of coming clean on their Benghazi Debacle and that the only way to get the truth is subpoenas , investigators and courts . 

 

  With few exceptions all we can see is a republican congressional delegation that can do nothing but act as enablers of democratic recalcitrance . To a man they lack the spine to stand up for liberty , truth and the American people . Whether it’s spending , gun control , green subsidy scandals , vote fraud , Fast & Furious or Benghazi the republican leadership apparently can do nothing but roll over and kiss dem/media ass .

 

   The four brave men who died because of government incompetence , or worse , deserve better of their elected officials as do the rest of us who pay their salaries and live under their capricious whim .

  ” Petraeus’s testimony on Benghazi would have been of much more value than any other witness’s, and thus more potentially damaging to Obama. We know that Americans were under attack, and that both the CIA and the State Department were aware of it in real time. We also know that U.S. aircraft stationed at Sigonella, Italy, could have flown to their aid in less than an hour to suppress the attack and possibly save American lives. And we know that Petraeus — a former top commander who knows how to use air power, special forces, and all the other tools of war — would have been pressed by the committee on why those aircraft weren’t ordered in during the course of a seven-hour attack.

In short, Petraeus was in a position to know more, and explain better than anyone else other than Hillary Clinton or President Obama, what precisely happened here while the Benghazi attack went on. If he were honest — and that has to be presumed — his testimony could have blown the Benghazi affair sky high.”

 Shades Of Vince Foster and his stroll through Ft. Marcy Park .

” A highly disturbing Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) report circulating in the Kremlin today claims that a top US Secret Service Agent (USSS) assigned to President Obama’s protective detail was “suicided” over fears he was about to release highly damaging information regarding the White Houses’ release of classified information to Hollywood producers, whose movie about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden is intended to boost the American Presidents reelection chances and airs two days before the 6 November election.

According to this report, US Secret Service Agent Rafael Prieto, 47, was declared dead this past week of apparent carbon monoxide poisoning after he was found in his car with the engine running in his suburban Washington D.C. home.”
