Richard M Nixon the man the liberals love to hate is a piker when it comes to “Dirty Tricks” and “Enemies Lists” compared to the people in the White House now. Nixon in his paranoia used staff and aides to go after his “enemies. These people – in their paranoia and intolerance – use entire government agencies.
pik·er [pahy-ker] noun Informal.
a person who does anything in a small or cheap way.
This week’s agency used against enemies: The IRS
The House Ways and Means committee voted Wednesday to seek an investigation of whether former IRS official Lois Lerner violated federal law by using her power to ensure Right-leaning groups were targeted for extra scrutiny by the agency, giving misleading information during a probe of the matter by the Treasury Department‘s inspector general and using her personal email to conduct official business, which could have resulted in the disclosure of confidential taxpayer information.
In one instance… The Committee says the public “deserves a full and truthful explanation” for the actions of its ranking member, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), whose staff “surreptitiously contacted the IRS” about a conservative group that was seeking tax-exempt status — and was subjected to inappropriate scrutiny. Cummings never told committee Republicans about his contacts with the IRS concerning the group True the Vote. In fact, he has denied any such contact.
Today is not about Lois Lerner or the alleged inappropriate tactics she may have employed,” Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday. “Today is about protecting the integrity and the credibility of this committee.”
Speier accused committee Republicans of fabricating a “vast conspiracy” around a “mid-level bureaucrat who may have made some poor decisions.” “There is no connection to the White House,” Speier said. “What we are trying to do is hold in contempt a mid-level bureaucrat, and the actions of this committee won’t hold up to judicial scrutiny.”
Hmmmm… “Vast conspiracy”… These are precisely the words Hillary Clinton used when her husband was caught with his pants down in the White House. He didn’t do it, the vast conspiracy did. This is called the party playbook folks. It’s what you say when you are caught with your pants down. It’s simple… every totalitarian state – being insecure by nature – needs the party playbook. Through it, the state secures complete conformity and “toeing the party line” regardless of facts.
You need to read this week’s Charles Krauthammer Washington Post Op Ed on the nature of our current situation in regard to vast conspiracies. Click here…
If you don’t know Charles, take a moment to read him. He is a recovering intellectual liberal. He says eloquently in this column what we all know from history… Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Don’t think it can happen here? Just ask 20th Century Germans and Russians who never thought it possible in their countries.
It’s staggering to think that these people today have the temerity to use Nixon as the personification of evil. Nixon was a piker compared to these people. He never dreamed of being so audacious in his paranoia.
