Masked and Spurious
Within what used to the hallowed and respected halls of Congress...there amongst the current representatives of the people, are housed the memories of past leaders - the ghosts of the founders of our great country.
While it is certain that none of them could call themselves "angels" or "100% pure," it's a safe bet that if any one of them had partaken in events, let alone even contemplated them, similar to those now being perpetrated by the Department of Justice and the ideologically motivated Attorney General, either a firing squad would have been convened or the gallows would have been set up and a pine box would be under construction.
Isn't it bad enough that he has chosen which laws to enforce and which to overlook? If justice is blind, then why is it that this man sees crime in two colors: black and white? The murder of an American citizen was committed using a weapon that was supplied - to members of one of the most notorious drug cartels - by this government...OUR government and yet we're being told that there's nothing here to see...just keep moving!
As his testimony would have you believe; He didn't know anything about F &F (for the benefit of the AG and to clarify; F & F refers to Fast And Furious) until he heard about it on the news. He would have us believe that subordinates of his, far down the chain of command, acted on their own volition and created a program that traversed the borders of a neighboring country...without so much as a nod from their superiors or a phone call to Mexican officials? And, to top it all off, after all of these acts of what could be construed as treason (providing either intelligence or the means to kill a uniformed American officer), nobody has been fired or brought up on charges? Mr. Holder, this is America-not Venezuela!
Since the House subcommittee hearings won't be persuaded to go away with the specious stories told by this cabinet member, he now has called in his hole card: The President of the United States. We are now being sold on this bill of goods: The AG didn't know anything about this operation, nor did the President. Yet, it has been deemed necessary and the call has been harkened for these documents to be protected from prying eyes due to Executive Privilege.
Let me get this straight: 1) Neither of these men knew about the operation. 2) No communication exists between these two men regarding F & F, as neither knew anything about it. 3) Executive Privilege laws exist to protect internal documents to protect cabinet members and the executive branch. If there were no communications, then common sense tells us that there would be no need to protect any documents. The old adage "me thinks thou dost protest too much" comes into play here.
Holder, who deems the citizens of this country as "cowards" is himself, nothing more than a coward. He has been caught in a series of lies in trying to cover up his (and perhaps the White House's) involvement in a scandal that resulted in the death of an American and scores of Mexicans. He is willing to sacrifice the sanctity of the office to continue down the road of obfuscation and untruths. To hell with the American people and the justice that they demand! It would appear that arrogance is one of the prerequisites for employment in this administration.
Our President, too, has blood on his hands and is a coward for hiding behind the mask of a Constitutional protection when it suits his needs to extend the findings of this subcommittee beyond the elections. This is turning into another birth certificate type of fiasco. If there's nothing to hide, then just provide the documents and move on.
It's patently obvious to those who pay attention that that this administration does have something to hide and they'll go to any length to make certain that the skeletons in their closet don't see the light of day until after November 6th.
Fast and Furious has now become Masked and Spurious; nothing more than cover-ups and lies....nothing to see here folks, just move on.
