To the Editor:
“Be afraid, be very afraid.” Those words from the movie, “The Fly,” should be the watchword of every American citizen.
The current so-called government scandals are indicative of a government assault on liberty in general, and the American citizens in particular.
The Benghazi tragedy, and the “fast and furious” gun running debacle are examples of incompetence, whereas the IRS investigation and harassment of opposition groups is intentional criminal activity of a government agency to oppress the will of citizens. The search and seizure of news reporters’ records is an outright disregard for constitutional rights. While watching the sham hearings pretending to get to the root of the ever expanding problems, I was reminded of the TV series “COPS.” The culprits holding drugs or ill-gotten loot always proclaim innocence, saying, “That’s not mine.”
The Democrats on the committee heaped praise on the persons being questioned as if they were there to receive an award. This behavior is only noteworthy because it is happening here, not some third world dictatorship.
Now, before someone leaps to defend the president, let me say up front, he is innocent. I surmise his innocence because he remains blissfully unaware of any of the aforementioned breaches in good order and government.
He has said that he, the secretary of state, the attorney general and the chief of the IRS have no knowledge of any breech of unbiased governance, or critical decision making that ran guns, failed to protect our embassy staff, conducted illegal audits, and suppressed free speech.
Be afraid, be very afraid.
