Government Inspectors Generals Describe Atmosphere of Restricted Access

Majority of the Inspectors General find themselves unable to perform their duties to audit the federal governmentInspectors General yes, that’s the plural are considered watchdogs for the government.
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..

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.

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.

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.

As America tires of his inflated sense of self-importance while the economy limps and his foreign policy crumbles, Obama travels around the country complaining that the mean old media aren’t complimentary enough.
“You’ll hear if you watch the nightly news or you read the newspapers that, well, there’s gridlock, Congress is broken, approval ratings for Congress are terrible.
And there’s a tendency to say, a plague on both your houses. But the truth of the matter is that the problem in Congress is very specific. We have a group of folks in the Republican Party who have taken over who are so ideologically rigid.”If this speech were a book, its title would be, “I’m OK; You’re a Right-Wing Extremist.”

Dictatorial Control Over Americans Right to Defend Themselves Against TyrannyObama has created 23 Executive Orders which deal with gun control.
Yet, the White House has not listed them as of yet, meaning that the President has not yet signed them. Clearly, this is a lever he is holding over Congress to get what he wants with gun control. If Congress, does not submit to his desires, Obama will, no doubt, enact the 23 Executive Orders, thus leaving American defenseless against the tyranny of the aforementioned Executive Orders.
ConclusionWhen JFK implemented his unconstitutional EO’s, he was preparing America to survive a potential nuclear war. The benign comparison between JFK and Obama is not valid because the threat that America faces is not nearly as clear as what JFK dealt with. Therefore, any prudent person would ask, “What is Obama truly preparing for”?
When 2016 rolls around, will President Obama actually leave office? Will be there even be an election? I know, we have heard this before with Pappy Bush and Bill Clinton. However, these two past presidents did not have quite the kind of track record with regard to self-anointed demagoguery.
Will these aforementioned Executive Order allow Obama to decree himself, “Ruler for Life”?
Under these Executive Orders he has granted himself to incarcerate those who would oppose him, starve populations into submission, control all jobs, wages, transportation and control the message to the people.
He now has the ability to limit the citizens’ the right to defend themselves against his tyranny. And along with his criminal partners in Congress e.g. Pelosi, Reid, Feinstein, under the NDAA, he has the ability to “disappear” and even murder suspected political dissidents in the spirit of Mao, Hitler and Stalin.Who will oppose this tyrannical power grab? Will it be the 50% of the country who are sustained through federal subsidies?
Will he be opposed by those who are brainwashed by the corporate controlled media? Will he be opposed by those who own the infamous Obama phone?
He would only be opposed by regular middle class citizens and the previous paragraphs tell you what you need to know about the opposition that we will face and more importantly, what is coming.Every power grab is precipitated by a trigger event.
If these EO’s are not simply a grand series of coincidences, then one has to seriously consider when and where a false flag events and martial law will come into play?…………

The United States has reached a political precipice. The country is facing the greatest Constitutional and existential crisis since the Civil War, a situation which may expose America to assaults on its national security equivalent to Pearl Harbor and 9/11.
In an effort to force a radical transformation of the United States, the rogue Obama Administration, enabled by a complicit Congress and a compliant media, has attempted to undermine the Constitution, usurp the power it reserves for the States and deny the rights it guarantees to the American people.

According to new polling from Quinnipiac, a majority of Americans view President Obama\’s White House as incompetent. In addition, a majority of Americans are still questioning Obama\’s character and view him as dishonest and untrustworthy.
The Obama administration is not competent running the government, voters say 53 – 42 percent. The president is paying attention to what his administration is doing, 45 percent say, while 47 percent say he is not paying attention.
The president\’s character measures remain low:

(Col Sellin) ~ Does America stand for the preservation of rights or the perpetuation of power? ~ Family Security Matters …
by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD January 16, 2014
In numerous forums, I have argued that there is a Cold Civil War underway in the United States between the power of a one-party state represented by the entrenched Democrat-Republican political establishment and the rights of the American people.
The Declaration of Independence states that certain rights are unalienable and endowed by the Creator. A one-party state believes that rights are granted by the government and, when deemed convenient, are revocable by politicians.
The first through ninth amendments to the Constitution enumerate the rights of citizens and the tenth restricts the role of a central government, as stated:
\”The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.\”
There is no ambiguity.
Nevertheless, the Democrat-Republican ruling class, which seeks an ever larger and more intrusive government, argues the opposite, that the rights and restrictions stipulated in the Constitution are unclear and that all powers not specifically delegated to the citizen are reserved for the government.
Barack Obama wrote in The Audacity of Hope, \”I have to side with Justice Breyer\’s view of the Constitution — that it is not a static but rather a living document, and must be read in the context of an ever-changing world.\”
Kevin Gutzman, author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution, has said, those who would offer us a \”living\” Constitution are actually giving us a dead one, since such a thing is completely unable to protect us against the encroachments of government power, for example, the misuse of executive orders.
As conservative radio host Mark Levin noted, Obama\’s announcement that he will assume lawmaking powers via executive orders violates the separation of powers clauses of the Constitution.
Yet no objection is raised by the majority Republicans in the House of Representatives, whose power Obama usurps.
Sadly, either through fear or self-interest, instances where members of Congress uphold their oath of office to \”support and defend the Constitution\” above political expediency are at best serendipity or at worst urban myth.
Not surprisingly, the politicians of America\’s one-party state view elections as little more than an opportunity for the redistribution of power among the political elite because the Democratic and Republican parties are not representatives of the people, but representatives of big government.

Happy New Year. Just when you thought the NSA spying scandal couldn’t get any worse, it has.
Last week, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., wrote to Gen. Keith Alexander, director of the National Security Administration (NSA), and asked plainly whether the NSA has been or is now spying on members of Congress or other public officials.
The senator’s letter was no doubt prompted by the revelations of Edward Snowden to the effect that the federal government’s lust for personal private data about all Americans and many foreigners knows no bounds, and its respect for the constitutionally protected and statutorily enforced right to privacy is nonexistent.

but that it was sharing unfiltered information with a foreign nation … Israel:

WASHINGTON – Given the moral and spiritual state of the nation, some have called it “the most important speech given in modern American history.”
It was delivered by Jonathan Cahn, author of the best-selling book “The Harbinger,” Jan. 21, 2013, the morning of Barack Obama’s second presidential inauguration, at the Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast. The unofficial gathering, which included members of Congress, government leaders and Christian ministers, took place just one hour before Obama took the oath of the presidency.
A draft version of the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2013 was introduced in the United States Senate on December 19. Section 2 (5) reads, \”if the Government of Israel is compelled to take military action in legitimate self-defense against Iran\’s nuclear weapon program, the United States Government
should stand with Israel and provide, in accordance with the law of the United States and the constitutional responsibility of Congress to authorize the use of military force, diplomatic, military, and economic support to the Government of Israel in its defense of its territory, people, and existence.\”

Two months ago, the DC Federal Appeals Court ruled that ObamaCare’s mandate to provide insurance coverage for contraceptives could not be imposed on the business organizations Freshway Foods and Freshway Logistics of Sidney, Ohio.
The Court ruled that “…forcing those owners to provide the coverage would violate their individual First Amendment rights allowing for the protection of their religion.” (1)
Then, on December 16th, Judge Brian Cogan made his U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York “…
the first court to hold that participating in Obama’s scheme to provide free birth control is a substantial burden on the free practice of religion…” (2) Not only did Cogan strike down Obamacare’s contraception mandate as applied to religious non-profit organizations, he also “…sent a strong signal that federal courts were losing patience with President Obama’s many stitches of executive power.” (2)
Prior to the December 16th ruling, administration attorneys argued that because Congress refused to institute a contraception mandate which satisfied White House demands, Obama was somehow “…authorized to enforce his contraception mandate in the manner he did.” In short, Barack should be allowed to ignore both the law and constitutional limits on Executive power if Congress doesn’t satisfactorily submit to his wishes.
But Judge Cogan didn’t buy it. “It would set a dangerous precedent to hold that if the Executive Branch cannot act unilaterally, then there is no alternative solution,” said the judge. (2)
In addition to its defeat in Judge Cogan’s court, ObamaCare suffered yet another blow just this weekend when a federal judge in Oklahoma City “…granted an injunction…that prevents the government from enforcing the ObamaCare mandate requiring religious groups across the country to provide insurance that includes access to the morning-after pill and other contraceptives.” (3) The injunction prevents the government assessing massive financial penalties against the nearly 200 plaintiffs in the class action suit.

Would Americans Actually Dare Revolt Against This Abusive Government?

America’s Founding Fathers spelled it out pretty clearly: The purpose of government is to secure the God-given, inalienable rights of men.
They put that exact language into The Declaration of Independence.
They also spelled out, exactly, that when government becomes abusive, and “destructive of these ends,” it is mankind’s right and duty to alter, abolish, or overthrow it.
You may have seen the recent news about prominent and well-spoken experts testifying before Congress regarding the Obama administration’s shocking usurpations and out-of-control excesses, especially the utter lack of regard for Constitutional limits on the powers of the executive branch.
The testimony was remarkable in that the prospect of possible citizen uprising and revolt was brought up repeatedly.
I can’t recall in my lifetime this ever having happened before, in such an official, high-level on-the-record context before the cameras and klieg lights.
The question that comes to my mind foremost is not whether such outright revolt is justified or warranted. The question is whether enough of us have the will and the wherewithal to carry it out.
