A pattern indeed, that stretches back to 2010 and the IRS abuse, or 2009 if you include Obamas joke that he would use the IRS against his opponents.
Here is one more fact. In 2012, Obamas campaign deliberately disabled safeguards on its website, allowing it to collect illegal foreign donations. It did accept illegal foreign donations; to what extent is unknown. Those donations, and the campaign staff who disabled the safeguards, were never investigated or prosecuted. The media never showed much interest in investigating, either.

“Starting” you say! It’s late in the day.
I think the point is that it’s becoming blatant enough that people will have to be wilfully blind in order to continue to ignore the administration’s malfeasance.
There are indictable actions in there, and some of it might even rise to the level of “high crimes and misdemeanors”.
We are living under a totalitarian dictatorship.
You missed one ‘P’ word in the headline; Persecutions. There is political persecution openly being waged on independent thinkers. This is un-American! The public must be forced to confront this and correct it.

What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
I hope and pray that God will have mercy on us and save our nation from this evil regime.
A little trip down memory lane with a blast from the past.
Yeah, but I’m thinkin’ “A day late and a dollar short”. You know, “indictable”, what’s that? I’m thinking of Stanley Myron Handelman ... “Well, I was getting madder by the minute!”
The problem is that the current crop in Congress, on both sides of the house, is either too cowardly or too partisan at the moment to actually do anything about this, but under normal circumstances many of the items on that list would warrant legal action from Congress. That’s what I mean by “indictable”. If the situation changes in some way, all the elements are there to produce a really unpleasant investigation into the entire Executive Branch, and more than a few in Congress, and result in more than a few heads rolling, perp walks, and other ignominious departures.
The only card Congress has to play is impeachment. Nixon resigned. Clinton was acquitted. What if Obama were convicted? We're talkin' Cromwell here.
.... Now it appears that the fruition of their plan is taking effect and a purge of Conservative groups, vocal politicians and notable people is taking place .... for the good of the nation of course. If all goes well for them .... we should have a single party rule .... with a puppet opposition party composed of moderate RINO's to complete the illusion that we still have a democracy.
I do not think He is very happy with us, and if you know your Bible, there's not much reason to think mercy is in the cards.
Obama’s not the entire Executive Branch, even if he thinks he is. There are plenty of others under him who absolutely could be sent on perp walks too, and for good reason.
Hmm, how can that be? How can a dictator exist in a democracy? Won't the people vote to remove dictators? We elect both houses of congress, and the president usually garners a majority of the votes. The people vote every two years. We are told democracy is swell . . . keep the world safe for democracy, expand voter rolls, etc. How did this happen? Do a majority of the people support despotism?
In his conduct of the office of President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his consitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed, and impeded the administration of justice, in that . . .
Using the powers of the office of President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in disregard of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has repeatedly engaged in conduct violating the constitutional rights of citizens, impairing the due and proper administration of justice and the conduct of lawful inquiries, or contravening the laws governing agencies of the executive branch and the purposed of these agencies.
This conduct has included one or more of the following:
He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavoured to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposed not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be intitiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner . . .
anyone trust obammy’s gubmint is an idiot.
Criminal at EVERY turn
I think only a major revival can save the nation. Since I do not think there will be one, I think God's divine judgement will rain down on America. I heard my pastor say once, if God does not judge the country, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah. I think the Obungler and his minions are the first part of the judgment. I think it will get really, really ugly out there, before it gets better. With all the garbage that these slime bags have already gotten away with, I think physical persecution of Christians will happen before too long. I just wonder if people will fight back physically, or get on their knees and go quietly into the night?
Who says the US is still a truly-democratic country? Sure, the people go through the motions of elections every two years, but how effective is that, really?
As someone once said, if voting actually changed anything, it’d be made illegal.
Fer sure. If the people don't vote for conservatives, our freedoms are doomed. That means our natural rights, privileges are subject to majoritarianism, to entirely democratic decisions unencumbered by enumerated powers.
Our republic was set up to deliver the legitimate functions of a national government, (defense, pay national debts, provide a common currency, encourage/regulate commerce, etc) subject to the consent of the people, while simultaneously protecting the property and rights of minorities.
With the 17th Amendment of 1913, we overnight went from being a federal republic and became a democratic republic. The framers knew that democratic republics were inevitably doomed to eventual tyranny, and never remotely considered a popularly derived congress.
Until the states are returned to the senate, our totalitarian fate is sealed.
Lois Lerner should be tried convicted and executed for her crimes disrupting a fair election. Her crimes exceed murder and rape in harm to the people
A government that allows none of its ruled to run their own lives certainly isn’t going to allow those same fools to actually choose who will run the government.
The war against us is escalating.

QUOTATION: Treason doth never prosper: what s the reason?
Why, if it prosper, none dare call it treason.
This list needs to add that Dr. Ben Carson was investigated by the IRS after speaking at the prayer breakfast that took Obama to task.
. . . the purpose of the Great Sedition Trial of 1944 was to destroy Roosevelt's pre-war critics as attention turned to post-war matters particularly about relations with communists. IMO.
Once again I say the left is moving rapidly to initiate a Great Sedition Trial of 2014 that matches what FDR tried to do to opponents with the Great Sedition Trial of 1944. FDR started with small fry and planned to move up the chain of opposition.
FDR failed. Obama might succeed, the Establishment today is arguably aging 1960s New Left Marxist-Alinsky radical, campus psycho spoiled brats and their ideological issue. The Establishment in FDR's days were Americans who eventually stopped:
". . . one of the blackest marks on the record of American jurisprudence. In the legal world, none can recall a case where so many Americans were brought to trial for political persecution and were so arrogantly denied the rights [guaranteed] an American citizen under the Constitution.
Sedition has become opposing Obama.
Wot? Nixon did it?
If he did it why was the word endeavoured used five times in the nine articles of impeachment?
Prosecuted by Holder/Obama.
I will be praying for Dinesh.
Dinesh believes in Jesus Christ. He has defended God in countless debates.
Yes, he shared a hotel room with his fiancé and his first marriage divorce had not gone through. He resigned his college position because of it, and it was a Christian brother who privately confronted him. And, we don't even know if they committed fornication, but the appearance was enough for Dinesh to repent.
For that sin, God forgives.
But now we have the left, who not only is prosecuting and persecuting Dinesh, and on top of that they are throwing his forgiven sins in his face in the hopes of attacking him further. The same people who engage and defend homosexuality and abortion.
Perhaps God will intervene, and this will prove to be Obama's Waterloo.
It could happen. God is not to be trifled with, and Obama and the left have clearly spit in His face.
We shall see.
Two things will happen. God has to break her hardened heart and then we must come out of her.
Hitler all over again. And the men in this country are not doing anything about it!
This nation still has the right to expect God’s mercy?
And who is going to head up that committee?
I hope and pray that God will have mercy on us and save our nation from this evil regime.
God saved the nation when it was young. I’d bet He hopes that some of those to whom He gave so much might today rise and save it themselves.
It not just cowardice and partisanship, there’s also obstruction from the executive branch and party leadership.
The Lord helps those who help themselves.
Tar. Rope. Feathers. Apply liberally.
“I hope and pray that God will have mercy on us and save our nation from this evil regime.”
God helps them that help themselves.
And recall Churchill’s words:
“If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
“I think physical persecution of Christians will happen before too long. I just wonder if people will fight back physically, or get on their knees and go quietly into the night?”
I find strength and comfort in Patrick Henry’s immortal words:
“Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me: Give me Liberty, or give me death!”
“If we dont clean house in 2014 by enormous margins across the board we are doomed.”
Well, it won’t be good.
I agree. I am stunned at the number of people who don’t know anything about the 17th Amendment, and how it so fundamentally changed the country.
I loved this short clip from The Kelly Files last night.
Allen West is the best. Watch his demeanor here. Classic!
I loved his smack down of the leftist bald jackass. I loved how he didn’t blink.
Watch it all.
