Chicago Style Politics

Hasn't it been ironic how our first amendment right to free speech continues to erode as political correctness takes effect. Worse than that, those progressives that so ardently embrace free speech are the same ones who wish to censor anyone who does not agree with them. Remember Hank Williams, the man who sang the Monday Night Football theme song? Just one negative comment about Obama and this country singing icon was axed.

The sad thing that I'm now witnessing is bullying not only from the media but from the White House. Those that do not conform to the status quo are chastised by the media and are now unfortunately harassed by the law. If this is beginning to sound like Nazi Germany with its Gestapo, it is no coincidence. While Governor Christie is being raked over the coals about his alleged involvement with the George Washing bridge closing, our current administration is getting away with murder (don't forget about Benghazi).

I've come across three articles in just one day which proves my point. I will provide the link, some quotes and just say a few words about each of them.

Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, whose documentary 2016: Obama's America took a critical look at President Barack Obama, was arrested in New York for allegedly violating campaign-finance laws. Federal authorities accuse D'Souza on trumped-up charges of donating more than is legal to the campaign of  Wendy Long, who ran in 2012 for the U.S.

Conservative activist James O'Keefe is accusing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration of targeting his group with document requests and a subpoena, claiming the Democratic governor's recent comments critical of conservatives "aren't simply words." O'Keefe, whose Project Veritas is behind a series of hidden-camera investigations against left-leaning groups and causes, made the claims on the heels of the controversy over a recent Cuomo interview. O'Keefe claims that Cuomo's government is acting on his recent anti-conservative words, revealing that the Department of Labor has hit his office in Westchester County, N.Y., with demands for financial documents for months. He compared it to IRS targeting of conservative groups nationwide.

Finally, the last story I read explains why our credit rating has not gone down despite the worsening economic pit that our government is digging. The Justice Department’s launched a $5 billion fraud case against Standard & Poor’s downgrade of the United States. This case comes on the heels of recent accusations that former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner threatened S&P with unspecified retribution as punishment for a downgrade of U.S. debt. How ironic.

What is so astonishing about this blog post is that I read all three articles in one day. Welcome to the Fourth Reich.
