Barack Obama and his Culture of Corruption

Our President stated while campaigning, “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us”, and “voting is your best revenge”.  The culture of Barack Hussein Obama’s Administration was so well laid out with these directives that they are being faithfully executed without his even having to ask for them to be.
   Barack Obama pledged that “transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency.”  With all due disrespect to Nancy Pelosi, I am also recalling that she declared  that Republicans in Congress at one time were plagued by a “culture of corruption at the expense of the American people.” 
   President Barack Hussein Obama and his “culture of corruption” have exceeded even that of the Nixon Administration.  It is fascinating that the media, who have covered for his every misstep and made excuses for every instance in which he has thwarted both Congress and the Constitution, should all of a sudden wake up and complain, because this time it is they who have been wronged when the Department of Justice wiretapped the phones of the AP.  That changes everything.  Now they are angry and seem to be more ready to actually investigate instead of just repeating everything they are told by a classic prevaricator.  As pastor Martin Niemöller said, in part, in the time of Germany’s takeover by Hitler, (and no, I am not accusing Obama of genocide): 
“First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.”

   Our President grew up being indoctrinated in the belief that America is not a good country.  He says of his time in Indonesia where he studied the Koran, “I was a little Jakarta street kid.”  He has exclaimed that the sound of the Islamic Call to Prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”  It is certain that he was not taught to love America while being educated in an Infidel-hating country and culture.  
   When back in America he admittedly chose his friends in college by picking out the most radical ones; he spent decades attending the church of a man who famously preached "God d___ America!", saying after 9/11 that our "chickens had come home to roost"; and he befriended a Weather Underground member, Bill Ayers, who bombed public buildings to protest the Viet Nam War.  He worked as a Community Organizer, using Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals.
   Once elected President, he appointed a long list of his radical friends to recognized government posts including the Cabinet.  He also appointed many of them as his Czars, who are not authorized nor overseen by Congress.  In those positions they wrote many new rules and regulations, many against the direct votes of Congress.  They were following in the footsteps of their leader, who has repeatedly countermanded the votes of Congress by writing his many Executive Orders.
   It has become believable that our President, having placed his appropriately radical friends in powerful positions, did not need to be told of everything they do.  In fact he didn’t want to know what they were doing.  What better way to be able to say, “I don’t know anything about that!”  That he tells bald-faced lies to defend his own actions has been repeatedly proven.  It’s as if he doesn’t know that audio and video of his speeches exist. This same President who recently told The Ohio State University graduates that they should reject those who warn of government tyranny is now embroiled in actions which can only be described as government tyranny.  Our government is attempting to intimidate those of us who do not agree with the agenda of Barack Obama.  The very definition of tyranny is absolute power, and this President is attempting to have it, going so far as to lament that he is being restrained by the Constitution.
   The list of scandals about which Barack Obama is defending himself include but are not limited to:
1) “Fast and Furious”, the gun-running program allowing American guns into Mexico and then losing track of the weapons
2) His secret and personally chosen enemy kill lists
3) The power to indefinitely detain any American he chooses to detain, directly against our Constitution
4) The 4 Benghazi deaths and the “stand down” order given, while falsely blaming an American’s video.  Obama’s recent release of “all” emails regarding this subject omitted the emails of the first two days immediately following the deaths in Benghazi. We still do not know what Barack Obama was doing after Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta were told by him to do what needed to be done.
5)  The newly admitted IRS scandal of targeting conservative organizations and the leaking of that private information to the media for their use.  This went so far in one case as to demand that a conservative group who trains high school and college students, Lynchpins of Liberty, to divulge the name of every single young person whom they trained.  And now our President is threatening any critics in Congress to “treat (the IRS) with the responsibility it deserves and in a way that doesn’t smack of politics or partisan agendas.” Now that’s funny!  Add to this intimidation the fact that it is the all-powerful IRS who will monitor us and tax us on Obamacare.  The IRS is currently defending a class action lawsuit from companies which claim that the IRS stole more than 60 million medical records of more than 10 million Americans.
6) And last but not least is the newest scandal - the DOJ tapping the phones of AP reporters, and allegedly the phones in our House of Representatives' cloak room as well.
   All of this can be expected when a President so carefully chooses his Administration members that he does not have to lead them at all.   He just lets them do what he knows they will do, and he can thus try to keep his hands clean.   He is either lying again, he is an Empty Suit, or he is unwilling, uninterested or unable to actually control his own Administration.
