             Whatever happened to the Constitution?

              A question that needs to be asked NOW!!!!

What is the real reason behind the Justice Dept.’s email grab?

 

The 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”.

The U.S. Department of Justice is under the direction of Attorney General Eric Holder and has proven itself to be a political arm of the Obama Administration. I could fill many pages here with the abuses and the overtly political decisions Eric Holder has made since he took over the job of Attorney General. To list just a few, there was the Black Panther voter intimidation investigation that was dropped, the Fast and Furious gun transfer investigation and now the Justice Depts. seizure of phone records of numerous journalists from different news organizations under the guise of national security. The Justice Dept. cast a very big net when it instituted its investigation, on not just one particular journalist but on numerous members of various news organizations.  In essence it conducted a fishing expedition, 20 Associated Press journalists were involved by having their phone calls under official scrutiny, Fox News was subjected to this same type of fishing expedition when its chief Washington D.C. correspondent James Rosen came under investigation for pursuing his contacts about information into North Korea’s intention to continue nuclear tests after new sanctions had been imposed. Fellow Fox News correspondent William La Jeunesse and Fox News producer Mike Levine were both investigated because of their contacts and reporting on the Fast and Furious scandal. Obviously there is a pattern emerging here and the real reason behind these investigations and phone record grabs have less to do with national security and more to do with intimidating whistle blowers from talking to reporters. The Associated Press reported that since the news broke about the Justice Dept. looking at their phone records, contact with whistle blowers has all but stopped because these whistle blowers are afraid the Justice Dept. will come after them. Fox News reports the same thing has happened to their sources. What the Justice Dept., Eric Holder and the White House have effectively done is shut off whistle blowers who want to disclose wrong doing by the Obama Administration from coming forth.

 

The Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989 specifically protects those persons who want to report agency misconduct and guarantees them protection under the law. It would seem that Constitutional Law and Federal Law have no importance to the Obama Administration as a whole. Couple these unconstitutional invasions of privacy with the Benghazi cover up and the IRS targeting conservatives and the blatant misuse of the Justice Dept. in investigating the Black Panthers and Fast and Furious and you can surmise nothing less than a government out of control. The overt practice of intimidation of political foes by the Obama Administration is a shameful practice that should be condemned by all regardless of one’s political affiliation. It is an open assault on the U.S. Constitution, Federal Law and the American citizenry. Every American needs to immediately contact their elected officials and demand that a full and independent investigation be undertaken of the entire Obama Administration. We are watching the Constitution and its guarantees being systematically dismantled and the Federal Government turned against its innocent citizens. “Hope and Change” it seems has given way to “Oppression and Intimidation”, how far these travesties go will depend on how Congress deals with them and their track record so far dose not instill confidence.
