Executive Branch Illegalities Go Unsanctioned

Now that the U.S. is openly arming groups in Syria, it has openly admitted that it has been training rebels for several years in secret bases in Turkey and Jordan. Up to now, those who reported or wrote of this were using other sources of information as here. The Guardian reported this on March 8, 2013. The U.S. had to admit this because of these reports, if nothing else. Obama likes to conduct his wars in secret.

When I speak of “illegalities”, I mean that the executive branch of the U.S. government constantly breaks either the Constitution, international laws, solemn pledges it has signed, treaties it has signed, or laws it has previously made (passed by Congress and signed by some president). Even if there were no moral case against the U.S. actions, which there is, there is a legal case (and a pragmatic case).

There has been no war declared on Syria. There is no Syrian aggression against the U.S. There is no legal basis for training rebels or arming them. The U.S. government is an outlaw rogue regime, constantly lying, constantly manipulating information as in this case, constantly hiding critical information, and worthy only of great disrepect.

Clearly, this is yet another example of abuse by the Executive branch. This is not a D or R thing. Both sides of the supposed “aisle” do the same thing.

MYOB!

POLITICAL: Honesty, if Gooferment?

WSJ/NBC News Poll: Scandals Prompt Doubts About Honesty
Recent controversies surrounding the Internal Revenue Service and other government agencies have sown doubts about the honesty of the Obama administration, but most people don’t hold the president personally responsible for the agency actions, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds.

A majority of poll respondents, some 55%, said IRS scrutiny of conservative groups raised some level of doubt about the administration’s “overall honesty and integrity.”

Seriously?

Why is it so low?

I’d have bet it would have been in the high 70’s.

Oh yeah, “low information voters”.

Argh!

GOVERNACIDE: “Prostitute-gate” gets a bigger reaction than “Fast and Furious”

Another Letter from A.X. Perez

Anyone who has any doubt about the pro administration bias of the media or the anti gun bias of our media need only look at the current Secret Service scandal. I may be mistaken but it seems to me that over the last two weeks the news have given more time to the fuss created by Secret Service agents trying to cheat prostitutes out of their pay than it has given the Gunwalker Scandal over the last two years.

Anyone who pays attention to things will note that more people have been fired, reprimanded, or allowed to quit over cheapskate gate (doesn’t even rate caps) than have been punished over Operation Fast and Furious. Apparently the Government “error” which caused the deaths of some two hundred or so Mexican citizens, plus American citizens killed because they were visiting kin in Mexico, plus at least two American Law Enfocement agents is less noteworthy than Secret Service agents defrauding whores.

After all “Fast and Furious” only killed a few hundred people that we know about. “Prostitute-gate” allows them to rip the conservative white-male organization as part of the “war on women”.

RANT: Joe Pa should have been deposed; now he’ll be the fall guy

Joe Paterno passed away this weekend. Good and bad things are being said about him. Most of the bad seems to be coming from a younger generation that reflects a lack of tolerance on their part.

His failings, if any, in the the Penn State scandal were ordinary and minimal. He waited 24 hours to report to higher authority. He failed to notify the police after his Penn State superiors did not do so.

A great man whose life is now besmirched. Shakespeare said it best. Through Marc Antony. Marc Antony’s words in eulogizing Julius Caesar.” The evil that men do lives after them, the good is oft interred with their bones…”

A shame.

*** end quote ***

I was a fan of Joe Pa before all of this. BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), how can you not have outrage at the whole issue? You were very gentle with his legacy. Football is supposed to teach character. Struggle, honor, courage, bravery, all the manly virtues.

A number of people were shown to be cowards. From the quarterback who has to ask his Dad if he should have rescued the child. To the Head Coach who meekly “reported it to his superiors”. To the University honchos who buried it.

I’m no youngster, but I too look on Penn State askance now. This pervert had to be common knowledge on the campus. Why else didn’t this famous well-respected coach not get one job offer after Penn State? This had to be common knowledge around the football community. If it was, still no one took actions. What cowards!

I would have like Joe Pa to stick around to be deposed. To get to the truth. Now that he’s dead, everyone’s going to make him the fall guy. Maybe he should be. Certainly seems like there is more than enough blame to go around.
