Surprise, surprise!! Left-wing Congressman Elijah Cummings, senior Democrat on the House Investigations Subcommittee, is trying to end the ever-expanding House investigation of the Internal Revenue Service’s illegal “political targeting” of conservative applicants for 501(c)(4) tax-exempt status, by loudly insisting that “This witch hunt needs to end.”
This nonsense repeats the demands of a major May 15 article from Media Matters (an integral part of socialist George Soros’ blindly pro-Obama Center for American Progress) — to the effect that “New Talking Points Revelations Should End Benghazi Witch Hunt.”
How outrageous that there should be not only one but two dastardly Republican-led “witch hunts” atop each other in Barack Obama’s two supposed scandals and subsequent cover-ups. How dare the GOP go digging around for witches and warlocks in the President’s inner circle.
Avoiding the Dreaded “Cover-up” Label
Of course, this is only one of many misleading, blame-game mantras by which today’s Obama partisans attempt to avoid the dreaded “Cover-Up” label for the President’s culpability in a long list of scandals involving the huge Benghazi fiasco, the plainly illegal IRS discriminations, the Associated Press and Fox News incursions, and multiple other scandals big and small.
Other such labels of derision and misdirection from Obama’s “Age of Scamalot” crowd over the last several months have included a “partisan sideshow,” a concocted “Fox News story,” a mere “political carnival,” a matter of “there’s no there there,” a “right-wing distraction,” a display of “radical extremism,” a transparent “GOP tool for fundraising,” ad infinitum..
But the false label that is most repeated – but which, ironically, offers the best opening for effective counter-attack — is the spurious charge that this is nothing but a partisan “Witch Hunt,” to which we should respond that this is actually a multi-layered “WHICH Hunt,” instead.
The deadly serious goal should now be to discover exactly which guilty government officials – including the President himself — have been lying, covering up, and even committing perjury in the scandal at hand …
o which White House, IRS, and Treasury officials?
o which State, DHS, INS, and DOD officials?
o which DOJ, FBI, CIA, and NSA officials?
o which “Soroctopus” (Soros-funded) operatives?
o which “ProgSoc” Congressmen and Senators?
o which lockstep-Left members of the Media, etc.?
