Their jobs primarily focus on “uncovering waste, fraud, and mismanagement”, which is an important function to keep government programs and agencies in check.A serious breach of trust is evident, therefore, when 47 of 73 Inspectors General pen a letter to Congress describing “serious limitations on access to records.” That’s 64% of the total watchdogs who express such concerns.

…..Sharyl Attkisson, formerly an investigative reporter with CBS News, where she resigned after becoming disenfranchised with the editorial direction of CBS, suggested that had the Watergate scandal happened today,

Nixon might have skated if he employed the tactics President Barack Obama’s is using in handling his controversies.“I think we have gone backwards since that time where we felt empowered as journalists.

 

And I’d like..

to think what would happen today during a Nixon-type scandal,” Attkisson said. “Nixon would basically refuse to turn over tapes to Congress.

His aides would refuse to testify to Congress or would take the Fifth [Amendment] or lie to Congress with a fair amount of impunity..

“We’ve got to ride the global-warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic policy and environmental policy.”– Tim Wirth, former member of Congress, U.S. under secretary of state for global affairs, “Science Under Siege,” 1993The unconstitutional capitalism killer, the Environmental Protection Agency EPA, has been busy while Americans have been fighting the latest surge of illegal aliens flooding the Texas border.

It’s important to know the back story of the EPA. Article I, Section 8, of the U.S. Constitution does not authorize Congress to legislate in the area of the environment; therefore, the agency is unconstitutional.

All 50 states of the union have their own version of the EPA as authorized under the 10th Amendment. There is no need for a federal agency.

Investor’s Business Daily ^ | 07/10/2014 | IBD StaffPosted on 7/11/2014, 9:37:19 AM by IBD editorial writerLeadership: All year long, President Obama has bragged that if Congress didn’t act on his legislative agenda, he’d do so on his own. But when it comes to the border crisis, he says his hands are tied.Back in January, Obama labeled 2014 a “year of action.” He said, “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone” and promised to use them to “take executive actions and administrative actions” if Congress failed to get things done.

New pressures for special prosecutor on IRS scandal… “…Not only does this suggest bad motives but casts further shadows on the agency’s claims that emails from Lerner and other figures in the targeting scandal were accidentally lost in a computer crash and are unrecoverable. Given Lerner’s apparent effort to obstruct investigators, the administration’s long-silent internal investigation looks less and less credible.”

New pressures for special prosecutor on IRS scandal

Washington Examiner ^ | July 10 2014 | Washington ExaminerPosted on 7/10/2014, 11:18:51 AM by PoloSec

The fundamental question about the IRS targeting the president’s political enemies is whether it was corruption or incompetency. A newly obtained email from the central figure in the scandal, former IRS executive Lois Lerner, isn’t helping the administration’s claim that the abuses were unintentional:

“I was cautioning folks about email and how we have had several occasions where Congress has asked for emails and there has been an electronic search for responsive emails — so we need to be cautious about what we say in emails,” Lerner wrote to a colleague before the scandal went public. Lerner goes on inquire about whether members of Congress could get access to an instant messaging system used by the agency.

How Obama created the border crisis

World Net Daily ^ | 07/09/2014 | Jack CashillPosted on 7/10/2014, 8:26:29 AM by detective

On Tuesday, President Barack Obama urged Congress to cough up $4 billion to deal with the flood of children from Central America – and others from parts unknown – crossing the border into Texas.Obama called this mess “an urgent humanitarian situation,” but what he did not do is take responsibility for almost single-handedly causing this mess two years prior.
