Tyranny – Obama Style

It’s no coincidence that the political timelines of the IRS and Justice  Department fishing expeditions, as well as the Benghazi cover-up, all line up  with Democrat political campaigns.

As we have warned over and over again in the last four years, this is an  exceedingly power-hungry president who has no respect for the Constitution or  rule of law. He will continue to run roughshod over our individual rights and  economic freedoms — if we continue to let him.

It amazes me this doesn’t scare the crap out of anyone on the left.  Repost of an article.  Good stuff here.  BEGIN:

Tyranny: Perhaps the most sinister aspect of the president’s  parade of scandals is that just days before they broke, he mocked as paranoid  those concerned about government excesses.

On May 5, while giving the commencement address at Ohio State University,  President Obama advised graduates to put all their trust in government and  reject those shrill “voices” that say it’s the source of our problems.

Ignore these limited-government types, he told the class of 2013, who warn  “tyranny lurks just around the corner.”

Only, Obama himself has proved our fears are well-founded. Government,  particularly governance by this rogue regime, needs more checks, not fewer; more  skepticism, not less. Tyranny isn’t lurking around the corner. It’s now upon us,  manifest in the pattern of misuse and abuse of government power by this  presidency, as revealed in its:

• Siccing the IRS on its political enemies.

• Seizing the home phone records of journalists.

• Opening more criminal investigations of press leaks than all previous  presidents combined.

• Intimidating and silencing government whistle-blowers.

• Doctoring CIA intelligence reports to cover up national security  failures.

• Framing private lenders and other businesses for civil-rights  violations.

• Funneling settlement funds from banks to Democrat nonprofit groups who  weren’t even party to cases, including those that exist solely to shake down  banks for risky loans and payola.

• Interfering in and sabotaging Supreme Court cases to protect  unconstitutional prosecutorial weapons used against financial institutions.

• Running guns to foreign druglords and covering up their link to a federal  agent’s death.

It’s no coincidence that the political timelines of the IRS and Justice  Department fishing expeditions, as well as the Benghazi cover-up, all line up  with Democrat political campaigns.

This is the government we have trusted to be the custodian of our personal  medical records? This is the government we have trusted to police every consumer  credit transaction?

It is imperative that Republicans now move legislation to repeal ObamaCare  and Dodd-Frank, while immediately blocking further funding to enforce and  implement new health and financial regulations.

As we have warned over and over again in the last four years, this is an  exceedingly power-hungry president who has no respect for the Constitution or  rule of law. He will continue to run roughshod over our individual rights and  economic freedoms — if we continue to let him.
