An additional sadness is that among those pulling on the rope are many negroes.
Republican legislators, governors, and pundits owned by the right-wing media, press and cable companies have been telling us that Obamacare will increase the deficit and destroy the economy even before it was signed into law.
Take a moment to watch this video and find out just how NOT TRUE that lie is.
Simply put, scandals get investigated by Congressman Issa. Felonies are overlooked.
In March, 2013, James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence lied under oath to a senate committee investigation NSA behavior. Lying to a congressional committee is a federal felony. When is Congressman Issa going to begin an investigation that seeks to cause Mr. Clapper to be charged for that crime? Since it is common and public knowledge that Mr. Clapper committed this crime – it was shown at the time it happened to the millions of Americans who watch CSPAN – why is he still in office?
I understand that Mr. Issa’s committee is and has been busy. They have been busy investigating and determining what “really” happened in Benghazi; finding out why the IRS was FOLLOWING THE LAW and doing what it is tasked to do as it sought to determine which groups might or might not be eligible for tax-exempt status; and, finding out whether or not the White House and the insurance industry – unlikely allies – conspired to lie to the American public about health insurance policy cancellations caused by the implementation of Obamacare.
Shucks, since those of us who watch CSPAN or any news outlets or read the internet saw Mr. Clapper lie, they should be able to conclude an investigation of his crime on any day in the few minutes between the pledge of allegiance and the opening prayer.
And they should be aware and cautions regarding the potential of Mr. Clapper’s use of the Oliver North gambit.
A good example is the letter Senate Republican Leaders Mitch McConnell and Cornyn sent to the NFL, demanding that it not cooperate with the Obama administration in a public-education campaign to tell their fans about what benefits would be available to them and how the plan would work—a letter that clearly implied deleterious consequences if the league went ahead anyhow. McConnell and Cornyn got their desired result. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell quickly capitulated.
