June, 2017, Part 7, Political Class Insanity: Voter Fraud In Indiana and The Scandal That Is Fast and Furious

As we do every month, we review the latest idiocy, lunacy, ineptness, and general insanity from the American political class. We are getting started as little late this month since we needed to review the latest global warming.climate change insanity from the likes of Al Gore, culminating in our review of the 26 reasons why it was appropriate and necessary for Trump to pull us out of the Paris Climate Agreement:

But let’s quickly get into this month’s political class insanity because over the past month or so there has been a lot of it was Washington implodes into a useless pile of incompetence:

1) One of the most basic tenets of democracy is that every citizen's voice and view have the same weight when it comes to politics and government. Once that tenet is endangered, either in reality or in perception, then the very basis of democracy is severely endangered since the trust and faith that Americans are truly in charge of their fate is in doubt.

Which makes a recent article by Andrew West, writing for the Constitution website, so chilling:
  • Twelve people associated with the Democratic party in Indiana have been arrested and charged in a voter fraud scandal.
  • Their law breaking could have been as high as affecting 45,000 voters.
  • The charges allege that 11 temporary workers used by the Indiana Voter Registration Project created, falsified and then submitted an unknown number of voter applications.
  • The supervisor of the 11 temporary workers, Holly Burke, was also charged.
  • The Indiana State Police got involved in an investigation when a clerk in Hendricks County, Indiana identified about a dozen suspicious registration forms.
  • The State Police investigation quickly expanded to 56 Indiana counties and involved upwards of 45,000 possibly bogus voter registration forms.
Even one bogus vote is a taint against our democracy, thousands of bogus votes seriously undermine the democracy that has worked so well for over two hundred years. The bottom line is that there is now suspicions that my vote is being diluted by underhanded efforts by others associated with the political class. Insanity.

2) We have not talked about the disaster that is Fast and Furious, Obama’s ill fated, illegal, un-Constitutional, and stupid gun running operation for a while. Remember, that was a gun running operation that placed military grade weapons in the hands of the cartels which were then used to kill a U.S. Border Patrol agent, countless innocent Mexican civilians and which resulted in no arrests or prosecutions of any criminals at all. This government effort has to go down as one of the most botched, costly, and fatal efforts of all times.

Well, a Congressional report on that operation was recently completed and made public and it is not a pretty sight:
  • According to William La Jeunesse and Andrew O’Reilly, writing for Fox News on June 7, 2017, the House of Representatives Oversight Committee recently released a scathing, nearly 300-page report on the whole Fast and Furious operation.
  • The report accuses Eric Holder’s Justice Department of withholding information to cover the the facts of the botched operation, specifically not telling the family of slain border agent, Brian Terry, what actually led up to his death.
  • The report also slammed Obama’s use of executive privilege to cover up the operation’s failures and to protect the law breakers in the Justice Department relative to the operation.
  • In addition, the report cited the Obama administration for not releasing pertinent documents to Congress.
  • According to Congressman Jason Chaffetz, committee chairman: “[Terry’s death] happened on Dec. 14, 2010, and we still don’t have all the answers. Brian Terry’s family should not have to wait six years for answers.”
  • Agent Terry was killed in a firefight on the Mexican and U.S. border with drug cartel members who were using Fast and Furious provided weaponry.
  • Of the 2,000 guns that Fast and Furious provided to drug cartels and other Mexican crime elements, the Obama administration and Holder’s Justice Department lost track of over 1,400 of them, two of which ended up at the slaying sight of agent Terry.
  • According to the report: “More than five years after Brian’s murder, the Terry family still wonders about key details of Operation Fast and Furious. The Justice Department’s obstruction of Congress’s investigation contributed to the Terry family’s inability to find answers.”
  • John Dodson, an ATF agent within the Justice Department who helped blow the whistle on the botched operation testified recently in front of the committee: “That decision, the single act of standing up and saying, ‘What we are doing is wrong’… instantly took my standing from being that of an agent of the government – to an enemy of the state. ATF and DOJ officials implemented an all-out campaign to silence and discredit me… Suffice to say, the last six to seven years at ATF have not been the best for me or my career.”
  • While the Justice Department knew immediately that Fast and Furious guns had played a role in the death of agent Terry, Holder’s Justice Department insisted that they did not know and that his internal investigation was more concerned about covering up than finding the truth.
  • The House report also uncovered the reality that Holder’s Justice Department also stonewalled a Senate investigation into Fast and Furious by withholding information.
So in summary, we have an illegal gun running operation that broke international treaties and domestic law, we have incompetence since well over over a thousand guns ended up in the hands of drug cartels and other criminal elements, we have the silencing of whistleblowers, we have unnecessary deaths of a U.S. border agent and many, many innocent Mexican civilians, we have the Senate stonewalling, we have total insensitivity to the family of the slain border agent, and we have un-Constitutional actions of Obama and Holder relative to Congressional inquiries, and nothing to show for any of it. 

If ever there was a case for impeachment and removal from office, this was the it. Insanity.

Only two pieces of insanity for today but important ones: blatant illegal and un-Constitutional behavior by the Obama administration and potentially massive voter fraud in Indiana, both cases being an assault on the rule of law and the Constitution. More insanity to follow.
