HOLD IT! Before you lose your religion and throw something at your computer over my title let me explain what I mean. I do not believe he was successful in the sense of doing what was right and good for America. I believe he was an abysmal failure on that front. He was, in many ways, more damaging and dangerous the Islamic or any kind of terrorism. He was more damaging to our economy and our system of government than any outside foreign enemy has been. So, why would I say he was successful and in what was he a success?
Many remember the Watergate Scandal and the downfall of Richard M. Nixon and those who do not remember have heard various spins on the events that led to the resignation of the president. However, I believe that Barack H. Obama and his administration or partners in crime were far more successful at cover-ups than Nixon ever dreamed of being. In fact, I would argue that they have pulled off the most effective cover-up in American history, to this point. You may disagree and while there is still hope that the ‘cover-up’ will be fully uncovered, at this point they have and are succeeding.
I could contend this on several fronts, including Benghazi, the Iran deals, Fast and Furious, Russia and Uranium, and more. However, the one cover-up that stands at the front of the line and rises to the top of the page is the current one being played out in the incessant attack on our electoral system and the duly elected president of these United States of America. It began before the 2016 presidential election but solidified during that timeframe and has continued to develop insulating layer after layer since that time.
Our own Justice Department and the FBI participated along with numerous other governmental agencies in perpetrating and perpetuating the illegalities and the cover-ups needed to protect the Obama team and Hillary Clinton. The entitlement mindset and the belief that they are morally superior to the rest of us encourage them to do what they do. They truly believe that the end justifies the means and when that becomes the bedrock policy and ideology the means become the end and there is no distinction between the two. The Bible says, “a little leaven leavens the whole lump.” Simply, a little corruption taints everything and if allowed to continue unimpeded corrupts everything it touches. That’s where we are now in Washington, DC in a great measure.
We have endured two long years of endless diatribe, rhetoric, and devoted digging into everything Trump and nothing Clinton or Obama. We have uncovered documentation after documentation that there was a cover-up and the collusion between various law enforcement agencies, members of Congress, the courts, and the White House under Obama is apparent. Sadly, nothing has been and under our current lists of legislators and many bureaucrats in Washington suggest nothing will ever be done. Justice will not be served but the pursuit of the perversion of justice will continue.
Representatives Nunes, Goodlatte, and Gowdy dug deep into the scandals and cover up and we know the incredible threat to national security through Hillary Clinton’s use of a private unsecured server to send and receive emails with classified information. The FBI and the DOJ effectively insulated her and granted immunity to her team and has ignored any connection between them and Obama himself. I’m sure there was every attempt by his staff to assure him of plausible deniability even when the deniability was not believable.
The use of the Steele dossier to obtain FISA warrants demands deeper investigation and Obama’s directives to the FBI, NSA, Homeland, CIA, IRS, and every other agency of government must be fully addressed. The fact that the FBI and DOJ withheld much if not most of the pertinent information from Congress is more than a concern, it may well be a crime. It borders on if it is not obstruction of justice and is clearly a coordinated effort to ‘cover up’ the improprieties, illegalities, and unethical behavior of the previous administration including herself, Hillary Clinton.
The collusion and conspiracy to infiltrate the Trump campaign, have Rod Rosenstein wear a wire in his meeting with the president, and the infamous insurance policy of former FBI agent Peter Strzok all have a repugnant odor that is loathsome. When the former president can smugly claim that his administration was the most transparent and scandal-free in history, one would like to laugh but cannot. Transparent? Richard Nixon was more forthcoming than Obama. Scandal Free? Does anyone remember Fast and Furious, Benghazi, and dozens of other events? He said, “Scandals that we were concerned about” so maybe that is the real issue, they weren’t concerned so to them there was no scandal.
The damage done to our system of justice and government will not be removed and will create problems for generations to come if we survive that long. The blatant lies, the destroying lives of innocent people to facilitate their desired cover-up and the wedge that has been driven between Americans may well be irreversible. Therefore, I say, “Barack Obama was successful.” Not at being a good president or advocating for what is best for America but in seeking to ‘fundamentally transform’ this Republic and hide from those who are willing to be led into his web of darkness, he was. In 2016 I believed that many American has begun to awaken from their political stupor and decided no more! However, in the two-years that have ensued and the 2018 mid-term elections, I am no longer as convinced of the continued awakening! The elections of 2020 will define our future and whether the successful cover-ups of the Obama administration are allowed to stand. If they do, America may never recover. If they are not allowed to stand and justice is finally served, America will enjoy restoration to her Constitutional status as a Free Republic.
God bless you and God bless America!
