Washington is too big, too powerful and too intrusive in our lives. Led by out of control agencies like the NSA and IRS, which have literally persecuted Americans for political reasons, Washington has become a threat to opportunity, freedom.

Trump And Obama Brilliantly Compared; “Reason vs Treason”

The Trump Administration is being panned by leftists as politicizing the Department of Justice – like during the Obama years, it was a beacon of fairness, impartiality and a complete lack of political bias.

What a joke.

Under Barack Obama, the Department of Justice was used as a political weapon to go after enemies, support friends and manipulate the levers of government. It’s worth noting just a few of the most egregious examples of the political weaponization of the Justice Department under Barack Obama:

Back in October, we reported that the Obama Administration created a slush fund to siphon settlement money from companies found culpable in the 2008 financial collapse. That slush fund sent millions of dollars to leftist activist groups like the National Council of La Raza, the National Urban League and NeighborWorks America.

This was all done in secret, of course – or at least without consulting Congress. Three years ago, the head of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, warned the Obama Administration that they needed to disclose where the money was going, but they never did.

Back in 2012, after George Zimmerman fatally shot Tayvon Martin in Florida, the Community Relations Service (CRS), a unit of DOJ, deployed to Sanford, “to provide technical assistance for the preparation of possible marches and rallies related to the fatal shooting,” according to DOJ documents obtained by Judicial Watch.

The rally featured prominent racial provocateur Rev. Al Sharpton as a speaker. The unit “was in Florida as part of their mandated mission,” a CRS spokeswoman told The Daily Caller. The mission is to serve as a “‘peacemaker’ for community conflicts and tensions arising from differences of race, color, and national origin,” according to department’s website.

Fast and Furious

The DOJ gave guns to Mexican cartel members in the hopes of tracking the guns higher up the chain. When the operation went awry, as it was destined to, the DOJ engaged in a cover-up. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ effort backfired when authorities lost track of 1,000 firearms they allowed straw buyers to take across the border.

Former Attorney General Eric Holder was cited for contempt of Congress after Obama asserted executive privilege to avoid turning over the documents, which Congress sought to explain why the DOJ decided to withdraw as inaccurate in a February 2011 letter. The letter claimed top officials were unaware of the operation until long after its conclusion.

We have the The Tarmac Meeting

Former President Bill Clinton’s meeting with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in the summer of 2016 on the Phoenix airport tarmac was as shady as it got.

Former FBI Director James Comey testified in June 2017 that the ethically dubious meeting forced him to hold an independent press conference announcing Clinton’s use of a private email server was “extremely careless,” but decided against recommending charges. He further testified that Lynch asked him to refer to the investigation as a “matter,” so as to downplay its significance — a request Comey admitted made him feel “queasy.”

We have Interference with State Voter Laws

Under Barack Obama, the DOJ spent most of a decade fighting voter ID laws in Texas. After the Supreme Court weakened the Voter Rights Act in 2013, Texas moved ahead to implement their own law.

This prompted the Obama DOJ to issue a legal challenge on a basis the law was intended to disenfranchise racial minorities. Holder’s opposition to the High Court’s ruling drew intense criticism from Republican lawmakers and governors who argued the move represented an affront to the Constitution.

“This end run around the Supreme Court undermines the will of the people of Texas, and casts unfair aspersions on our state’s common-sense efforts to preserve the integrity of our elections process,” former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a Republican, said in a statement.

Muslim Was Paid Nearly $2,250,000

For Fake Abuse Claims Against Troops In Iraq

This is why we see so many “anti-Muslim hate crimes” faked by Muslims in the U.S. and the West in general: becoming a victim brings one laudatory press attention, and in many cases money and special favors.

Al-Sadoon said: “It was all about money – people exaggerating sometimes what they see.’ He blamed the British legal system ‘for making it so easy.’”

Indeed. British authorities, primed with endless victimhood posturing by Muslims in Britain, were ready and willing to see British troops in Iraq as abusive, racist, “Islamophobic” louts, and eager to pay for such stories.

Clinton Received MILLIONS from Russia In Exchange For…

By Andrew West

Those still defending the actions of career criminal Hillary Clinton deserve a medal for their stubbornness in the face of their obvious visual and moral handicaps.

What the liberal media once claimed was a far too cruel nickname in “Crooked Hillary” now seem like a farce.  It would as if someone were to describe the amicable, late children’s television icon Fred Rogers as “a tolerable fella” in that neither description comes close to scratching the surface on these two distinctly opposed public figures.

Now that Clinton has been forced into a retreat of sorts, having been irrevocably embarrassed by populist President Donald Trump during the 2016 general election, there is more muck being unearthed from beneath her feet than could be found in the Okefenokee Swamp.

A division of the Department of Defense lost track of more than $800 million in construction projects financed for the Army Corps of Engineers and other agencies, according to an internal audit.

The audit, conducted by Ernst & Young and obtained by Politico, found the Defense Logistics Agency had misstatements on its books related to construction projects that totaled at least $465 million. The audit also found the Defense Logistics Agency lacked sufficient documentation for $384 million in spending for construction projects deemed “in progress.”

Neil Gorsuch and Samuel Alito Butt Heads Over the Fourth Amendment, Again

Gorsuch advances another property rights theory of the Fourth Amendment that Alito rejects.

A major split seems to be developing between conservative justices Neil Gorsuch and Samuel Alito over the issue of property rights and the Fourth Amendment.

The most recent evidence of this division came on January 9, when the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Byrd v. United States. This case arose in 2014, when a woman named Natasha Reed rented a car and allowed her fiancé, Terrence Byrd, to drive it in violation of her rental contract, which listed her as the sole authorized driver. When the state police stopped Byrd for a minor traffic infraction, the officer searched the trunk and discovered heroin and several flak jackets. Byrd is fighting to have that evidence thrown out as the fruits of an illegal search.

Deputy AG Rosenstein Threatened to Subpoena GOP Intel Reps’ Calls and Texts

By Debra Heine February 3, 2018

Highly placed congressional sources are telling Fox News personalities off the record that last month, out of frustration, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened to subpoena the communication records of Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee. If true, the threat could constitute an abuse of power or even obstruction, a Fox News legal analyst says.

On Fox Business’ “Making Money” Friday, conservative talk show host David Webb said a “highly placed congressional source” told him that during a January 10, 2018, meeting with FBI Director Christopher Wray, Rosenstein, and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Nunes were in attendance, Rosenstein got so irritated by the requests for outstanding documents that he threatened to subpoena Congress and launch an investigation.
