OBAMA CARE, AND HOLDER CONTEMPT CONSPIRACY, A BUST FOR REPUBLICANS
Republicans pulled off an egregious act yesterday in the US house of Representatives, it was never done before, yet it was planned and timed for the very day the US Supreme court was to hand down a ruling on the Affordable care Act,dubbed (Obama care).
At the center of the tragedy perpetuated by the republican house of representatives is Attorney General Eric Holder,and the so-called fast and furious gun-walking program started under the Bush Administration and ended under Attorney general Eric Holder.
Eric Holder Daryl Issa.
House republicans investigating the fast and furiousprogram involving the ATF, decided to hold the Attorney Generalin contempt of congress. Attorney General Holder and the Justice department argues that they have handed over thousands of documents to the house oversight committee,chaired by Daryl Issa republican from California. The Justice Department and democrats insists that the investigations is nothing more than a witch-hunt, designed to embarrass the Obama administration which has been an impeccable andscandal-freeadministration thus far.
Democrats insist that if Issa wanted a thorough investigation he would have called former Bush Attorney General Michael Mukasey under whose watch the program started. Lost in the theatrics of republican web of deceit is the fact that a federal border agent was murdered allegedly by Mexican drug dealers. On that basis it is important that there is a detailed and comprehensive non-partisan investigation done by Issa’s committee with a view to determining what really happened.
Issa admitted on FOX misinformation to Cris Wallace that he had no information that there was any kind of cover-up involving the Obama White House, yet as soon as he was done he went back to insinuating that the fast and furious program was intended to create gun crimes on the mexican border which the administration would then use to push gun control laws here in the United States. Nut-cases on the fringe had already concocted all kinds of conspiracy scenarios to include what Issa parrots, real reporting on this case has shown that Attorney General Holder did not know about fast and furious and as soon as he found out about it he stopped it and reassigned the agents involved.
Issa will not allow those facts to get in the way of the right-wing talking points which is nothing but lies, hate and misinformation. Anyone who thought that Daryl Issa would be above using his congressional authority in such a blatant political and shameful way must now reconsider. It is now clear to everyone who have eyes that republicans will do any and everything in their power to destroy this president. There is nothing beneath republicans, there is nothing they will not do to gain power or get their way.
THE PLAN WAS TO HAVE WHAT THEY THOUGH WOULD HAVE BEEN A SUPREME COURT OVERTURN OF THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT (OBAMA CARE) AND THE DOUBLE WHAMMY OF HOLDING THE ATTORNEY GENERAL IN CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS, ALL ON THE SAME DAY.
DOES ANYONE BELIEVE THAT THERE WAS ANY OTHER REASON WHY THEY SCHEDULED THE HOUSE VOTE ON THE DAY THE COURT’S DECISION WAS DUE?
THEY WERE STUNNED WHEN IT DID NOT HAPPEN THEY WAY THEY PLANNED. THE TALKING POINTS WAS TO FURTHER THEIR 3 1/2 YEAR NARRATIVE THAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS ILLEGITIMATE, HELD TO BE UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND IN CONTEMPT OF THE CONGRESS IN ONE FELL-SWOOP.
THAT WAS THE REPUBLICAN PLAN.
Instead they are left with eggs on their lying despicable faces, left to cry in their drinks and plan more atrocious deception and demagoguery.
Joe Scarborough host of MSNBC’s (morning joe) tweeted that republicans by doing what they did, seemed petty and political, no one will accuse Scarborough of being a flaming liberal. I too have some P words I would like to use to describe them , but I will refrain from stooping”g to their level.
House minority whip Stenny Hoyer Democrat Maryland argued that the period which would lead up to a contempt of congress vote, is one that would take 87 days, house republicans voted to hold Holder in contempt in 7 days, yet they cannot pass any legislation that benefits the people who put them there to do their business. Many observers to this nightmare of a party wonders how in hell anyone could vote to put these lying, hateful , miscreants into office when all they care about is enhancing the agenda of the 1% ? Time after time on every issue republicans have been wrong. They warned and declared dooms-day when social security was enacted , medicare, and every social program designed to help average Americans, to include the civil rights Act, the voting rights Act, and every other piece of legislation which moves this nation forward.
On every issue republicans have been wrong, yet they never waver when America is to wage war on other nations, that is the only purpose of the republican party to wage war. Many of the low-information voters who actually drink the proverbial cool-aid and follow these kooks are living off the very social programs and safety nets their party demonize and demagogue.
Members of the congressional black caucus in a show of solidarity with Attorney General Holder led a walk-out of democrats while the travesty was being perpetuated, true to form their were some democrats who as expected were scared shitless of the NRA surrendered their principles and voted out of fear to hold the AG in contempt.
Say what you want about republicans, they lie they are racist,they cheat, they conspire to deceive, and whatever else you may accuse them of they are that, but republicans would never under any circumstances vote with democrats to hold one of their own in contempt . This was not only a sad day for the nation, for the house of representatives, and for the process, it was a sad day for democrats.
The actions of democrats who voted for this contempt of the Attorney General was a cowardly and reprehensible act. As a member of the human race I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees, the argument that they were afraid of the all-powerful national rifle association is bogus.
These are the same bogus democrats who call themselves blue-dog democrats, they are not real democrats they are wolves in sheep clothing, nothing more than trojan horses. These are the very people who were the last to come into the fold when Barack Obama won the nomination, they are not much different from the hateful despicable republicans they are simply worse.
Having been raised by grandparents and extended family members in NE Saint Catherine, I am acutely aware of the challenges facing people of modest means all over the world and we of African Ancestry, irrespective of where we are domiciled, we are at the forefront of the disadvantaged. Some say we cannot make a difference, I say each of us can.
The greatest impediment to our growth is our inability to dream. Rosa Parks was a seamstress who made a tremendous impact simply by sitting down.
I ask well intentioned people wherever you are in the world , "use this site as a sounding board to those who are in positions of power, let your voices will be heard we are humans, no less than anyone, no more."
In Jamaica, the country of my birth the disadvantaged are shouted down by those with money and power, their voices exploited for votes or sensationalism, now you have an unfiltered voice to speak your mind as long as you do not defame, degrade, libel, or demagogue anyone.
