Politics as usual in DC? What’s the Administration hiding?

Politics as usual in DC seems to have reared its ugly head again.  You saw my post about the NSA claiming they spy on Americans, but won’t say how many Americans they’ve spied on.  Well, there’s more… a lot more.
 
As political dissension reaches new highs in, what seems to be, almost weekly a basis, the government seems to working to quell some of the facts getting out to the public.  The current adminitration is also, it seems to me, working to cover up more than previous administrations. 
Scandals abound thoughout the Obama Administration from Fast and Furious to presidential appointees… from censorship requests to bullying tactics against news media and federal agencies.
 
Then come the request for censorship to Google.  Since when has out freedom of speech and the right to air our grievances been disallowed?  It seems this socialist president is becoming more like a communist dictator than anything else.
Political commentary remains a prime target as governments increase the number of requests for Google to remove material from the reach of Internet users. The Internet giant on Sunday released its fifth semi-annual Transparency Report providing insights into requests by countries around the world to “take down” content from search results or Google venues such as YouTube.“Just like every other time before, we’ve been asked to take down political speech,” Google senior policy analyst Dorothy Chou said. “It’s alarming not only because free expression is at risk, but because some of these requests come from countries you might not suspect — Western democracies not typically associated with censorship.”

The number of requests from the United States doubled in the second half of last year.

Here’s more!  Obama basically told AG Eric Holder he doesn’t have to give up all the information requested by Congress.  This is another case of being an unconstitutional bully.  You see a pattern here?  This man is nothing more than that, a bully that likes to go around Congress and violate our Constitution for the benefit of himself and his friends.  If this were Bush doing the same crap, the liberals would be all up in arms screaming impeachment.
 
Justice Department officials on Wednesday said President Obama has asserted executive privilege over documents sought by a House committee in an investigation of the botched “Fast and Furious” operation.
The last-minute move came just prior to the start of a scheduled hearing by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on a contempt on Congress citation against Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who has refused since October to honor a committee subpoena seeking the documents.In a letter to Committee Chairman Darrell E. Issa, California Republican, a Justice Department official said the privilege applies to documents that explain how the department learned there were problems with the investigation, which allowed more than 2,000 weapons to be “walked” to drug smugglers in Mexico.

On top of all that, now King Obama has stepped in to exert executive privilege over Fast and Furious documents.  So there’s a criminal investigation the DOJ is not cooperating with, the Commander in Chief steps up at the last minute to bail his buddy out, and luckily, Darrell Issa is moving forward with the contempt proceedings. 

Keep in mind that Eric Holder said he’d cooperate and has since changed that thought to “kinda” cooperate, then to executive privilege.  Holder and Obama are both dishonest Chicago-style politicians that do nothing but screw the country over for their own benefit.

On top of all that, you have Republican and Democrats in the House bickering over whether or not Issa’s persuit of Holder is ethical or simply a political witch hunt.  This is going to be drawn down party lines.    When will we learn that as long as these people in DC tow the party line, we’ll always have these stalemated debated and fights going no where.

So, see what I mean?  Politics as usual in DC.  You can’t trust that these guys has your best interest of even the nation’s best interest in mind while making choices that can have profound effects on us all.
