Such Behavior Becomes A Tyrant

30 April 2013 @ 14:41

Doug Ross has up a damn fine post that covers two related items regarding he Special Operator who is speaking to Fox News on what really happened before, during, and after the attack in Benghazi [see also: William Teach's thoughts here] and the threatening of State Department and CIA officials by the Executive who are scheduled to testify before the Congress on Benghazi.

Please do take the time to click here and read about both matters.

The second one is the most egregious because it reeks of a government that is fully in the throes of Tyranny.

Let me quote from the Fox News report by James Rosen that Doug cites:

Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.

“I’m not talking generally, I’m talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”

Toensing declined to name her client. She also refused to say whether the individual was on the ground in Benghazi on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, when terrorist attacks on two U.S. installations in the Libyan city killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.

“It’s frightening, and they’re doing some very despicable threats to people,” she said. “Not ‘we’re going to kill you,’ or not ‘we’re going to prosecute you tomorrow,’ but they’re taking career people and making them well aware that their careers will be over [if they cooperate with
congressional investigators].”

This is appalling, especially in an age where we supposedly protect whistleblowers from such treatment.

Such thuggery is not unknown in the history of American Politics; we have experieinced bouts of widespread corruption before. However, what is different with the Obama Administration’s employment of such criminal acts is that it is in the service of people who are actively campaigning to overthrow the governments of The United States from within, not some selfish petty criminal motives. Their behavior is the stuff of Banana Republics in South America.

Jeff Goldstein comments:

So. Anyone surprised? And more importantly, will this force John Boehner and the rest of his flaccid, timorous, risk-averse House leadership kicking and screaming into (reluctantly, and against their persistent flawed political judgment) into calling for a Special Prosecutor?

No need to waste your breath answering that one, eh? Call me cynical, but I think I’ve earned the privilege of being so.

    Obama has prosecuted more whistleblowers than any other administration in history… Actually I believe the story was that no other admin has prosecuted whistleblowers trying to expose corruption before & specifically not the way he has…
    He does it under an old WW1 espionage law so he’s using legal loopholes to imprison the good guys. The press has noted it’s ‘chilling effect’ & also said it was very clear by the charges Holder was trumping up that the purpose is to ‘chill dissent’.
    Surprisingly, I’ve seen a lot of coverage in the leftwing media about it..Huff Post, Mother Jones, CNN, NBC, etc. …Not so much from the right & it makes me wonder why? Anyway to me, that speaks volumes.
    Don’t forget Barry has left a TON of ‘conveniently’ dead bodies in his wake. People like the men he allegedly had sexual relations with from his “church’ conveniently ended up murdered when he ran for office & didn’t need the gay sex accusations. (To this day all cases are still unsolved with no leads).
    It’s the Chicago way. Corrupt to the core.
    And the most important evidence of his tyranny is that everything about Obama is fraudulent.. From his BC, social security number & registration card to his name (never legally changed), to how he got on state ballots (fraudulent signatures), to how he won the election(s), (massive voter fraud at every level)..
    There’s fraud at every turn with this guy..
    So clearly, he holds the office illegally & our fed gov’t has gone rogue. Every part of it & that includes most of the Republicans are corrupt as can be. Case in point; they refuse to work with Sheriff Joe on the Obama investigation & Bohner is actively blocking it! I’ve come to the conclusion that any ‘opposition’ they seem to give to the Democrats is Kabuki theatre to keep the masses happy.
    Bohner by the way, is also blocking them from being able to form a select committe on Bengazzi.So we will continue to hear from the left that the report is a partisan attack & nothing will be done about it. Why on earth would Bohner block an outside investigation? He’s protecting the criminal mob boss in the WH!
    (Thank God these whistleblowers are lawyering up & have the guts to stand up to the criminal in the WH. They may be our only hope of ever finding out exactly what happened.)
    The entire Fed under Obama is a completely illegitimate regime that’s corrupt to the core.
    Yes, he’s a tyrant!
