Watching today’s festivities on Capitol Hill wherein the IRS Chief attributed the thuggish suppression of citizens as an unfortunate accident and certainly not intentional partisan political activity, I was launched into the wayback machine…..
Last July 2nd I travelled up to DC to join a protest against the crimes of Operation Fast and Furious in front of the White House. I arrived to see just a handful of college kids demanding Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation. After all, the U.S. government was running guns to criminals in Mexico that culminated in the death of a Border Agent.
But amazingly, within about a half hour the Secret Service ‘discovered’ a suspicious package and evacuated not only Pennsylvania Avenue in front of 1600, but Lafayette Park behind it, as well.
I was suspicious, but I understood the need for White House security. We disbanded as instructed. Maybe there really was a suspicious package.
Unfortunately, I just recently deleted my own photos from that day, but Townhall.com documented the whole thing. And apparently the ‘suspicious package’ was quickly claimed but the evacuation and sealing of the space continued, just the same.
I was there. I saw the whole thing, too. And it was just the protestors who were the ‘suspicious package’.
It was just four months before the election and this issue needed to go away and the White House crushed this little demonstration with extreme prejudice and expeditiousness using the full weight and pressure of the Secret Service.
Just another example of a government agency grinding its boot on our necks.
So. What is Obama’s death toll for his reelection so far? At least 5 by my count. No, wait. Now there are all of the American casualties in Afghanistan and Iraq who have been made sitting ducks by Obama’s withdrawal/retreat policies. The number is actually in the hundreds.
But body counts are what you get with gangsta gubmint. Get used to it. And just don’t cross gangsta gubmint, either.
