There is a curious connection between Democrat administrations that links Bill Clinton’s to Barack Obama’s. The link is the illegal use of the federal government as a weapon to attack their enemies. The American people, particularly conservatives and TEA Party Patriots, are living through the Obama administration’s IRS targeting scandal. This abuse of power involved using the IRS as a weapon to audit, and intimidate hundreds of conservative organizations. Congressional investigations into the scandal continue to uncover evidence, drawing closer to the White House. Every American should shudder at the thought of the IRS getting sent after them, no matter what party they belong to. In America, under our Constitution, we are free to have, and voice our opinions. Freedom of speech is so important that it was the foundation of the First Amendment. The death of that fundamental right would spell the death of America.
Before the IRS targeting scandal came Clinton’s Filegate.
Filegate was a Hillary Clinton scandal that involved the White House asking for, and receiving, over 900 Republican leaders’ FBI files for political opposition research. Excuses were offered, and after a decade the Clintons escaped culpability, despite that fact that “the President’s friend and close advisor, Anthony Marceca, had requested the files”. As terrible as this scandal was, at least it wasn’t so brazen as to target average Americans as the Obama Administration IRS targeting scandal did.
The modus operandi of the progressive left is to intimidate and destroy one’s enemies. Saul Alinski 101! Both Presidents, Obama and Clinton, used the same tactics, and taxpayer dollars, to go after their political enemies. Such authoritarian abuses must stop. Governments should fear their people, not the other way around. Given that Hillary was already part of one intimidation scandal as First Lady, is there any doubt, that she wouldn’t do it again should she become President?
