Can you imagine watching a basketball game in which all three of the referees were staunch fans of the home team? Every foul would be called against the visitors. While the home team was allowed to break every rule without penalty, all of the traveling calls and lane violations and everything else would be whistled against the visitors.
Sounds absurd, right? But isn’t that pretty much the way our country is being run under the Obama Administration? Liberal causes are granted every imaginable benefit, while conservatives are targeted for unwarranted harassment. Even the mainstream media plays along in this lopsided “game,” acting as if there is a level playing field whereas in fact the deck is stacked.
And that’s part of the reason why it was so refreshing late last year when the IRS was finally called out for targeting conservatives for extra scrutiny when it came to applying for tax-exempt status. For a little while there, we actually thought that there might be some justice in this country.
Even Obama himself pretended that he was angry about the IRS targeting. But then he clearly demonstrated his phoniness by appointing Attorney General Eric Holder to conduct the criminal investigation. And who was heavily involved in leading the investigation? Department of Justice civil rights lawyer Barbara Bosserman, who contributed money to Obama’s political campaigns.
In a letter to Holder, California Republican Representative Darrell Issa wrote, “By selecting a significant donor to President Obama to lead an investigation into inappropriate targeting of conservative groups, the Department has created a startling conflict of interest. It is unbelievable that the Department would choose such an individual to examine the federal government’s systematic targeting and harassment of organizations opposed to the President’s policies.”
So, under the Obama Administration’s watchful eye, the FBI has now come out and declared that there is no evidence of wrongdoing by the IRS in the targeting scandal. This despite the fact that 282 conservative groups were investigated, compared to eight liberal groups.
It would be laughable if it weren’t so tragic. And it’s never going to end until liberals are voted out of office. All the “referees” will continue to show favoritism to the home team.
Does it make you angry that the Obama Administration has just pulled off one of its most arrogant and blatantly unfair rulings? Or are you becoming resigned to the fact that this is just par for the course? Let me know what you think.
