There’s nothing quite so self-righteous as a Democrat before his crimes are exposed. There’s nothing quite so arrogant as a Democrat before his crimes are proven. And there’s nothing quite so obnoxious as a Democrat who has met consequences.
Early evidence suppressed: doubters scoffed at
Starting almost from Day 1 after Benghazi, conservatives across the nation were aware of large discrepancies between the official version of events and anything resembling plausible. Democrats and media pundits scoffed, even as evidence began to mount. The IRS abuse of conservative groups has been well-known in conservative circles almost from the beginning. The spying on media phones and such? Well, that was covered up so well that none of us knew anything about that.
All along, the media war wagon has shown not the slightest interest in truth, in protecting and preserving integrity in the government. Instead, media, Democrats, and the Obamanistas have harshly criticized and harassed truth-tellers. Republicans from the Karl Rove camp of surrender monkeys have been no better, even blaming conservatives for electoral losses that we now know had other reasons.
Meanwhile, the Obamanistas intimidated Benghazi witnesses and denied access to them. Military retirements in some of the most interesting positions made it difficult to even begin to ask the right questions that might lead to truth. Conservatives were hounded, audited, and asked (not very nicely) to give up vital and private information on the inner workings of conservative causes.
the trickle becomes a tide: Dems blame low-level rogues
But impressions and conflicting public statements have turned to evidence. Evidence has led to sworn testimony by whistleblowers. FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) finds have uncovered not only mountains of evidence of misdeeds, but massive evidence of coverups designed to hide those misdeeds.
The Democrat stories have changed. After the early denials and charges of conservatives being crazy and paranoids, now only the stupidest of them deny that some wrongs have been done [and those holdouts do still exist: remember, Democrats, not all that smart]. But the excuses have flowed like Niagara Falls. Because, you see — and this is important — it’s never the fault of the leftist cause. Perhaps a couple of miscreants misbehaved, let expedience overcome good sense. But above all, we still hold the moral high ground because conservatives are bad people. Never forget that. So excuses had to come. The final answer could not be corruption, a lawless enterprise, stolen election, wanton despotism.
Early excuses were low-level rogues in one IRS office; plus, they were swamped; Benghazi, well who can mount a response in such a short time? And what difference does it make, they’re dead; Besides, conservatives wanted to cut State Department spending (perhaps even Mister Sequester did it). And it was only a couple of wiretaps.
But more evidence, more testimony, and the mountains of paper trails made a mockery of the early excuses. Attorney General Eric Holder is caught having perjured himself. The IRS scandal goes to the very top, and it’s known to have coordinated with high-ups in the 2012 Obama campaign. Not only the AP was hit, but Fox News as well, and the secret order was signed by Eric Holder himself.
Subpoenas are flying around now like bats. Deeper investigations, starting with much more understanding of who to ask about what. The IRS is on order (which they will surely defy) to not delete any data from any hard drive on any computer. I would suggest that the paper shredders be confiscated as well.
A couple of show-firings and scapegoats have not stopped the tide. It’s not that the Dems have momentum against them in some interesting power struggle. It’s that they are supremely lawless, and this is just America discovering what all has been going on under the color of governance and authority.
Serious crimes: no consequences
We are not talking about a president diddling an intern. We’re not talking about some inappropriate uses of office. We are talking about using the power of government to commit voter suppression. Fair and free elections are how Americans express their will, and without it there can be no consent of the governed. We are also talking about spying on the free press. And we are talking about a military crisis brought on first by a stunning lack of interest in proper security in an area known to be a hotbed of terrorism. We’re talking about a military crisis in which the President and Secretary of State sat on their hands, unwilling and unable to act. And we are talking about lies and a cover up for the sake of winning an election.
These are serious crimes against America. There must be consequences.
It’s all the rage: we regret what happened
The Obamanistas are running out of cards. It’s not surprising that they’d pull this one out. We’re sorry! I felt a little remorse when I saw that I’d committed perjury! We’ll investigate things! Pass a few laws to make sure this doesn’t happen again! In other words, the despicable wrongs we’ve committed, the violation of the oath and spirit of the law, the disgrace, the betrayal, and most of all, the actual crimes committed against existing statutes, let’s just gloss right on over them.
Maybe we’ll fire a couple of more people. Which amounts to converting them from taking a check from you to taking a check from Soros Inc, over at Center for American Progress or Media Matters.
Handcuffs, trials, convictions, sentences? Those are for when those mean, corrupt, evil-rich Republicans do something wrong.
