Reprisals Feared Against Oklahoma Rep. Bridenstine

obama-angry-pointingThe Obama administration style of attacks on political opponents hasn't been seen in America since the Nixon days.

But really, even the Nixon White House never went to the extent of getting even with his political opposition as the Obama White House has shown.

The lengths that the Obama administration is capable of resorting to - just to get revenge - is unconscionable.

The Obama administration has used the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Federal Election Commission (FEC), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and now we find out that it has even used the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), to exact punishment against conservative groups and individuals.

From the DOJ investigating Conservative groups and reporters, to the FCC going after Conservative Talk Radio, to the FEC refusing Conservative groups the ability to run political ads, to the IRS refusing to grant Tax Exempt 501(c) status, to the EPA charging Conservative groups fees while largely exempting Liberal groups, the Obama administration is using the U.S. government as a weapon for political means.

And friends, since there are 456 federal agencies in the federal government - all consisting of hierarchies of agencies within themselves, bureaucracies within bureaucracies - this is a danger that we must stop.

All of the agencies that I've noted are agencies that we know which have been used in political retaliation against Conservative groups, businesses and individual citizens here in the United States.

Sound scary? Well, it should!

Punishment in the form of retribution and reprisals are powerful weapons which are right now being used by the Obama administration against anyone they see as opposing Obama or his policies.

These are scary times in American history.

For the first time in memory, a U.S. President attacks American citizens who don't agree with his policies or positions on issues governing our nation.

Fear is a not a new political tactic. It is just something new to Americans.

Most of us never thought that we'd be targeted for exercising our freedoms and rights under our Constitution.

Many now fear reprisal from the Democrats in control of the White House and the many government agencies that they can use as weapons against us.

My fear for Congressman Jim Bridenstine is that he has endangered himself, his family, friends and associates.

Why? Well, on June 3rd, 2013, yesterday, Oklahoma Congressman Jim Bridenstine questioned President Obama’s leadership in his speech on the floor of the House.

This is about the best evaluation of the Obama regime - and what's going on in Washington.

Speaking on the House floor Monday, Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.) delivered a brief-yet-scathing review of President Barack Obama and his administration.

In just over a minute, Congressman Bridenstine gave voters a concise list of political scandals and possible criminal activities that have occurred under President Obama.

The Republican lawmaker said the fact that his administration is spinning out of control proves Obama is “not fit to lead” as Commander-in-Chief.

Here are his remarks:

"The president’s Justice Department sold weapons to narco-terrorists south of our border, who killed one of our finest.

The president’s State Department lied about Benghazi with false information provided by the White House.

The president’s attorney general authorized spying on a Fox News reporter and his family for reporting on a North Korean nuclear test.

The president’s Justice Department confiscated phone records of the Associated Press because they reported on a thwarted terrorist attack.

The president’s Treasury Department uses the IRS to target political opposition.

The president’s Health and Human Services secretary pressures insurance companies she is supposed to regulate to promote ‘Obamacare,’ which is the same law she uses to force citizens to pay for abortion inducing drugs against their religious liberties.

The president’s dishonesty, incompetence, vengefulness and lack of moral compass lead many to suggest that he is not fit to lead.

The only problem is that his vice president is equally unfit and even more embarrassing."

We can only thank Congressman Jim Bridenstine for his courage to stand up to those in power.

He did so while knowing full well that President Obama and those in his administration will most likely use all of the power of the presidency to have multiple U.S. government agencies investigate and harass him, his family, and probably his supporters.

Yes, these are scary times in American history.

Today, more Americans believe that the President would try to punish them if they oppose him in any way. 

Today, more Americans see Washington as more of a threat than a protector of their right to Free Speech and Privacy.

Horribly, must Americans see Washington as more of a threat than a protector of their rights as a whole.

But if the Obama administration is using their ability to exact retribution or reprisals as a strategy intended to dissuade an adversary from undertaking opposition to his policies, its not working.

Though fear of punishment is a powerful weapon, we can thank God that America has men like Oklahoma Congressman Jim Bridenstine who stand up for what is right - even in the face of danger knowing full well that the Obama administration will seek revenge.  After all, that's what they do!

  1. As for as I'm concerned, all that Jim Bridenstine has to worry about is whether or not his attackers will be willing to carry out their so-called threats. If they can't, then that means Jim himself has won.


Thank you for your comment.
