The Left Targets Issa - Left-wing organization CREW defends administrationís Fast and Furious
Washington Free Beacon ^ | 7/11/12 | CJ Ciaramella

A left-leaning government watchdog organization filed ethics complaints Wednesday against House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) for revealing sealed federal documents in the ongoing Operation Fast and Furious scandal.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), in complaints filed with the Office of Congressional Ethics and the Department of Justice, accused Issa of violating federal law by putting sealed federal wiretap applications in the Congressional Record.

The ethics complaint was a nakedly partisan effort by CREW to support the cover-up of the operation by the Obama administration, said House Oversight spokeswoman Becca Watkins.

“It is shameful that an organization purporting to support good and transparent government is instead making itself complicit in an effort to cover-up a reckless government effort that contributed to the death of a Border Patrol agent,” Watkins said. “While CREW’s liberal leanings and dependence on anonymous donors have long been known, this latest action further exposes the naked partisan nature of an organization run by Democratic operatives.”

The wiretap applications were part of Operation Fast and Furious, in which Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents allowed thousands of high-powered firearms to be smuggled across the border and into the hands of violent drug cartels.

Until earlier this year, CREW was a member of the Democracy Alliance, a secretive cabal of left-wing groups that collectively receive millions of dollars annually from deep-pocketed liberal philanthropists such as George Soros. The organization does not reveal its donors.

Somebody needs to tell the Socialist “Citizens” for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, (SCREW) that Americans really don’t care WHAT they think. Anyone who hates America and Americans as much as those bozos do really needs to pack their bags and haul ass. This country doesn’t need them. They all can go live at Grandpa Soros’ house.

“The House needs to file charges of treason against CREW.

Congress also needs to make sure the rat nazis also get convicted and punished like the Nazis at Nuremburg.

They have the constitutional authority to implement capital punishment for treason.

I think we Conservatives need to take a page from the left’s playbook and come up with some Orwellian organizations of our own.

We could have CITY: Citizens for Inclusion and Tolerant Youth - in which we instruct them in conservative beliefs since they’re not exposed to them anywhere else.
or
People for Sustainable Living - in which we try to balance the budget and reign in government spending so that our way of life can be sustained.
You get the idea....
Maybe we can even advertise on the Huffington Post and get the numbskulls to send us money which we can put toward getting Tea Partier’s elected...

I do believe that We The People’s patience is long gone. Clock is ticking until November.

The RATs know their ship has sunk with many Liberal traitors on deck.

The state run “media” is going to need a tribe-sized, industrial strength tube of lipstick for the pig they are trying to sell to America this time. You’re right. America’s patience has run out. We also need to begin the fumigation process by starting with the U.N. If anyone needs to “MoveOn”, it’s the U.N. They’ve worn out their welcome in this country. It’s time for them to take down their tent and move that circus someplace else.

Recently dumped but yet vocal ping

"Until earlier this year, CREW was a member of the Democracy Alliance, a secretive cabal of left-wing groups that collectively receive millions of dollars annually from deep-pocketed liberal philanthropists such as George Soros. The organization does not reveal its donors."

Thrown under the bus but still kicking:

Democracy Alliance Dumps Progressive Organizations

The very powerful concluding paragraph of Ann Coulter's on-target essay today:

"It would be as if the Bush administration had implemented a covert operation to dump a dangerous abortifacient in Planned Parenthood clinics, resulting in hundreds of women dying — just to give pro-lifers an argument about how dangerous abortion clinics are. That's what Fast and Furious is about. That's what Fast and Furious is about."

But I bet this group is fine with BO’s exposing our National Security secrets for political gain.

It is sad to see that politics now trumps what’s best for the country.
