Another example of the fascist, Chicago-thug like tactics used by Obama, his administration, and now the First Lady…to silence dissent. Its clear that Michelle Obama is now part of the White House attack machine. So, that makes her fair game in the contact sport that is election politics.
In America the press enjoys very specific First Amendment protections. Assuming this really happened… Whoever this White House thug is that told this female reporter to not talk to folks at this campaign rally in Wisconsin, should be publicly identified and humiliated. Not only should that person be fired… BUT, a Congressional investigation should be convened, as this is hardly the first time this White House has threatened or intimidated those in the media. Just ask James Rosen, the senior Washington correspondent over at Fox News. Obama had AG Eric Holder and his Justice Department target James Rosen as a co-conspirator in some fictitious federal crime…just to shut James up. James is an outstanding reporter who is a consummate professional.
Anyway, there is very definitely a culture at the White House that targets opposition media personnel, and conservatives in general. As an example, currently there is Congressional investigation under way investigating the IRS (an executive branch agency that reports to AG Eric Holder and the Justice Dept) for its unconstitutional, brazen, abuse of power in targeting conservative organizations, many of whom are Tea Party affiliated, for excessive audits and so on. For over 5 years, the IRS has been going after certain organizations (primarily conservative, or Republican) because of their political ideology or affiliations. That’s completely illegal and a brazen violation of the U.S. Constitution. The primary person of interest there is Lois Lerner, a political appointee, who has thus far invoked her 5th Amendment rights, and has refused to testify under oath before Congress. She, of course, should be held in contempt of Congress, and thrown in jail. But, I’m thinking this goes MUCH higher.. So, again, Congress (after the November elections, of course) should convene an investigation into how the White House has been targeting certain members of the media, and has used almost mafia-like tactics against those news sources and persons. And people still ask me why I refer to people like Obama, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) who wants to do away with the First Amendment altogether and has said as much, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) who wants to take away our guns (something that Hitler did..gun confiscations), AG Eric Holder (who is a full blown racist fascist), and others as “Nazis.” You have to be a total Obama-zombie to not understand why, lol. In the meantime, I hope Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) is re-elected…along with others whom the White House has been targeting and campaigning against. That’d be poetic justice.
