  1. And while she made her presentation the democrats rolled their eyes and snickered.

  2. “Speaking truth to power” is an empty lefty cliche. Except that she did it for real.

    And afterwards, they high-fived each other in the Caucus room.

  4. They like our money, but they definitely despise US.

  5. A phrase that has no business in the vocabulary of a free people: Secret Court.

    Hate to disagree with you, Richard, but McDermott was observed wrestling with a can of Ensure. Poor old bastard still hasn’t figured out those newfangled cans.

  7. The next step is a secret police.

  8. Time for a special prosecutor.

  9. I agree with the WSJ: No IRS Special Prosecutor. From the comments:

    “The House has its prerogatives and must engage the perdition of this administration with a full court press. A special prosecutor will allow the issue(s) at hand to get back-burnered by the media to make it old news by the time the results come out (remember the boxes of documentation Ken Starr rolled up the Capitol steps that were met with the sound of crickets and tumbleweeds).
    There is a flavor of scandal and perfidy already on the table that will arouse indignant rage across a wide swath of independent voter subsets… it is a plethora of riches for Conservatives (which sort of, kind of includes most Republicans). The hand they are dealt must be played primarily as an indictment of big government, not as a head hunt to affix responsibility on specific individuals (not that nobody needs to go to jail for the crimes), or as a direct assault on Barack Obama, who is clearly so disconnected from the details of governance that deniability must be assumed. Catching Valerie Jarrett or David Axelrod in the sweep would be sweet justice, but it would misdirect the nature at the root of the scandals from a systemic to a personal failure.

    Exactly.

  10. The next step is a secret police.

    TOO LATE, …Verizon has been handing over to the Obama White House records of ALL telephone calls made for the last three months at-least; overseas calls, long-distance calls, and EVERY local call made. And it’s a safe bet that ALL the other telecommunications providers have been doing the same.

    Where are the Courts who are “supposed” to protect our Rights against the Powers-of-State?

  11. Ted, this is allowed under the Patriot Act.

  12. THAT merely proves my point…
    So much for Obama and the “most transparent administration in History…”

  13. It does? I don’t think it proves anything except perhaps a cognitive dissonance between the executive and judicial branches. Has it been determined that it is our right to use the public airwaves without government oversight? Honest question — has it?

    Comment by Ignatius — June 6, 2013 @ 3:40 pm - June 6, 2013

  14. @13, interesting question. My take: airwaves are likely a “public good” in the economic sense. To the extent that my use of them inflicts harm on others, it may warrant a discussion about taxation to discourage harmful usage. A public good is not owned by government and not every public good usage requires governmental oversight. We are looking at a different kind of a world (somewhat Orwellian) if we argue that things that are not owned by anyone (like air) now require governmental oversight.

  15. Great video. That woman really makes the case. I cannot believe the government of, for and by the people would do that, but apparently it does. What have we become?
