Something stinks in the White House

Three major scandals have arisen in our government. The intense interest in resolving the blame for these scandals is moving at a snail’s pace. It is understandable why the results are moving so slowly, as these are a great black eye on the present administration. In the investigations, there have been a lot of stonewalling. People can’t remember, and some refuse to answer questions. Whom are they covering for?

I have an opinion that probably will not be popular with those who support the current administration and party in the White House.

Looking back at Chicago and the gangster era, attempts by the government to indict the mob heads were almost impossible. The reason? There was no paper trail to connect the mob leaders to their lieutenants and hit men. The mob leaders did everything by word of mouth so there would be no connection. The government managed to get some put in prison — not for the crimes they had committed, but for income tax evasion.

My theory is that it will almost be impossible to tie President Obama to any of these scandals because he issued instructions by word of mouth. The same may go with those immediately under him. Only those who may be a third step down may be paying the price for the corruption that has invaded this White House. This makes Obama coming out smelling like a rose, while his henchmen take the fall for him.

However, it is going to take a long time to open up the trail to those responsible for handing down the instructions in all three of these scandals. Democrats will circle their wagons around this administration because they know the damage that will be done if it eventually entails the former secretary of state, the DOJ and President Obama.

Basically, and I don’t think I am alone in this, something stinks to high heaven. We have an administration that has arrogantly stomped on the Constitution of the United States because it knows that a majority of those voting are not involved in issues. It is sad when news reporters interview college students and they can’t even tell you who the vice president is, nor the secretary of state during the Benghazi murders. These are the young people who came to the forefront in Obama’s re-election. Ignorance is not always bliss, and the adage of “what you don’t know can’t hurt you” is a fable.

Liberty-loving Americans must wake up and take a stand, regardless of political affiliation. Our country’s liberty is at stake. We have a biased media that won’t print nor broadcast the facts, as they circle their wagons around this corrupt administration. Our only hope is that God-fearing Americans will shout and bring this monstrosity to a climax, with those responsible being indicted and, if necessary, impeached.

May God help us, for we are in grave danger of being taken over by uncontrolled socialism and our constitutional liberties perishing.
