The Obama Adminstration's War on We The People

Updated on February 4, 2012

September 13, 2011

Can we spell Abuse of Power? There is unquestionably abuses of power that have continued seemingly unfettered by the current administration. This is a grave problem because unlike the war on terror, the enemy is from within and it goes by the name of the Attorney General Eric Holder.

It seems that this administration has a new abuse of our constitutional rights a minute! To wit—The Wall Street Journal had an op-Ed “For Profit Lawsuits” on September 12, 2011.

Eric Holder didn’t find enough evidence to bother with Black Panthers dressed in para-military uniforms, wielding clubs as they stood outside of voting areas acting in a very threatening way towards white voters. To Eric Holder that didn’t constitute voter intimidation. As I understood it although not quoted publicly, the Obama administration privately believed that only if this were reversed did this type of thing meet the criteria for voter intimidation. In other words, it doesn’t count when blacks/African Americans intimidate white folk, only when it’s the other way around that it is a criminal act.

Right. When I read the law on this I too saw where whites were excluded from these protections…

And if you believe that, then I have a dandy little bridge in Brooklyn I can sell you for a reduced price…

Apparently though, Eric Holder adheres to the what-is-good-for-the-goose-doesn’t apply-to-the-gander-theory.

So he continues to sell guns to Mexican drug Lords, he continues to warp the constitution by hammering guitar businesses that have a CEO who dares to contribute to Republican or conservative causes, he sues our own citizens in Arizona for following federal law and the latest is the Justice Department has dredged up a Civil War era law to go after for-profit colleges.

I’m not making this up.

In an effort to intimidate, harass and wield the power of the federal government and to line the pockets of another pet group of Mr. Obama’s, trail lawyers, Eric Holder has determined that this group’s supposed violation is far more egregious than voter intimidation or illegal aliens crossing our borders like salmon swimming down stream. No no no! Holder doesn't have time for these sniggly, wiggly little annoyances. He must go after those demoniacally evil colleges that **gasp** dare to make a profit!

I shudder at the mere thought!

Their terrible crime? I’ll let the WSJ tell it:

The facts of the case involve the Education Management Corporation, a Pittsburgh company that runs dozens of for-profit schools in the U.S. and Canada. According to the plaintiffs, the company broke federal law by paying its admissions recruiters on the basis of student enrollment. While the schools are allowed to take recruiters' success into account, they are not permitted to use it as the only factor determining compensation.

The company says its compensation plan, which included a legally vetted matrix of enrollment numbers combined with factors including good employee qualities like professionalism, customer service and initiative complied with the regulations issued by the Department of Education in 2002. In the preamble to the regulations, the Department acknowledged that "by the very job description, a recruiter's job is to recruit," and that Congress's new provision on employee compensation "did not imply that institutions could not base salaries or salary increases on merit."

The Justice Department had previously passed up involvement in some 30 cases filed against for-profit and non-for-profit institutions since 2002 according to the WSJ article. Why bring a lawsuit this past May 2011?

As is the MO for this administration, an odor of a rat seems to be in the air and I’m smelling it.

I recently read in a comment someone made on Facebook regarding the Justice Department's Gestapo-like raid of the Gibson guitar headquarters. The writer said something like "The war on every single means of commerce in this country has been declared."

The enemy is Eric Holder and the Obama administration.

2012 cannot come fast enough for me!

      Hey Harvey - great photo! You look great!

      Isn't it funny - I was about to write yet another Hub about Obama's blunders - but just the THOUGHT of listing them all was too exhausting! I just read about one in the Wall Street Journal I hadn't heard about. Apparently Dumb Dumb, when running for President in Feb. 2008 spoke to an audience in Cleveland and said, "There is a strain within the pro-Israel community that says unless you adopt an unwavering pro-Likud approach to Israel that you're anti-Israel." Except Likud had been out of power for two years when Mr. Genius said that. Can you IMAGINE Sarah Palin making a mistake like that or George W.??? It would have been Saturday Night Live fodder for years and David Letterman would have made slimy jokes about it every night. Never mind all the lib stream media repeated reports on it! It's disgusting how this man has gotten away with what he has!

      Pastor whoever you are - certainly not of the Truth.

      I honestly have to believe this comment is a joke. At least I give concrete specific reasons for the countless things the Obama administration has done to deserve such criticism. I not only give specific reasons in every Hub I write, but I note sources.

      You make all of these baseless accusations about the Republican Party and the Tea Party - which BTW didn't even exist until Obama began his socialist regime - with absolutely zero proof or references to your nonsensical claims.

      How could it be the Republican's fault when both the Congress and Senate since 2006 were controlled by Democrats? And your demand that the Republicans cooperate is truly laughable. Where was the transparency and cooperation when Pelosi and Reid met behind closed doors and rammed an unconstitutional health-care bill down America's throat? What about EPA rulings against the coal industry that have already been SHOT DOWN by Congress? Now the President will illegally do what HE wants instead what is constitutional and legal down America's throat - yet again - by a back door.

      The list goes on. I'm afraid you have it completely backwards. The Democrats are completely out of control and it's not just Republicans who say so - key Democrats - Ed Kotch and James Carville just to name two high profile Democrats have come out publicly against the President. Truly, you need to get a grip on reality. You couldn't name one specific instance where Republicans are responsible for all the ills of America because "Dr. Truth" - your "truth" isn't truthful.

      I don't understand why Holder is still Attorney General. He has committed more crimes than all his felons put together. Where is Congress on this? Why do we not hear their voices? As for Obama, he is ripe for impeachment. Waiting for 2012 may be waiting too long. Up useful, interesting and awesome!

      American - you should tune in every day - @ 7:30 am to Tim Bryce's Podcast "The Bryce Is Right." HOWEVER in particular, on Wednesday mornings because I'm usually Tim's guest each Wednesday. He's gracious to keep having me come back. If you don't wish to get up that early, they always have a recording later in the day you can replay! Check it out! Tim and I usually have fun and I believe we both come up with some interesting conversation about current events. Tim has some amazing insights into so many things - he's a very bright guy with a sense of humor too! Just Google The Bryce is Right - not to be confused with the PRICE is Right which will also turn up when you do that search. Check Tim out - I think you'll enjoy him!

      Great Hub, Up and Awesome. You shown some good examples but the scary part is there are more abuses. Think about the ones we have not even heard about yet.

      By the way, what show?

      Awesome hub here and you are echoing my sentiments exactly. Laws are to be applied evenly to all groups, even if it is a black person practicing the discrimination toward a white. As for the current DOJ filing lawsuit after lawsuit against ANY state that dares try to enforce its laws, if the fed would enforce the laws they already have,maybe the states wouldn't be forced into enforcing their own. Like you, 2012 cannot arrive fast enough to please me. From my vantage point, it looks like this administration is only able to stifle freedom and destroy job creation and job creators!!

      What a surly, childish President we have, eh Old Poolman? When he first took office and was SO ungracious - from almost his very first speech as President, I knew the man had no class. And it wasn't too long after that I knew he was really not that smart at ALL...

      He has truly disgraced the office of President and it has nothing to do with the color of his skin - stupid doesn't know black, brown, white or whatever color or ethnicity. Stupid is as stupid does and it doesn't discriminate! lol

      The only good news in all of this is the next president can with a straight face and plenty of facts, BLAME IT ON OBAMA. At last George Bush will be able to get some rest without being blamed for everything from the heat to hurricanes.

      Hey lady. You've assessed the D.O.J. well. Holder and his allies have for sure made it into the "Just Us" department.

      Man - you said it TOGETHER we can make sure this horrible evil that has taken over the White House will be a one term and one term only President. You are so right about burning the village. What hubris, what gall this administration has! But they're determined to leave only ashes. I pray that those we sent there in 2010 can stop some of the destruction! Thanks for the encouragement! And thanks for your excellent comments!

      EXCELLENT! This administration has a pretty good idea that's it's going to lose the battle in November. They've decided to burn the village before they leave. Well put together my friend. Keep up the good work.
