WHERE THERE’S SMOKE, THERE’S FIRE.
Hey, hopefully all of you who know me see me as a “COMMON SENSE” guy. I try really hard at this “common sense” stuff; thusly, the title for this blog, “WHERE THERE’S SMOKE, THERE’S FIRE”. Meaning that if you see smoke, there is fire somewhere even if you do not see it. I feel this old saying applies very well to the Attorney General’s situation. If you have not been paying attention, he has a mess on his hands. This mess is of his own making and one lie is bad enough. But, this man is only surpassed in the lying category by none other than his boss. I will, in the following, point out not just one but a whole fist full of lies he has put forth to conceal his actions and to try to fool the American public. It is past due time for him to be held accountable for his actions and his false accounts of those actions.
I have no “ax to grind” here but his latest lie is just one of many he has been caught up in; and when it becomes a pattern, then it is time for his boss to take action. The latest of his misstatements, hell, let’s call it what it really is–a lie, is that he had no knowledge of the process to obtain a warrant to investigate James Rosen, a Fox News reporter, and his family. As it turns out, he lied to Congress, a crime in itself, when he stated, “he had no knowledge of any investigation about any news organization and that he thought it a bad idea”. Turns out that he, Mr. Attorney General, Eric Holder, himself, signed the warrant or the application for the warrant sometime before his claim to Congress that he had no knowledge of the investigation. If I signed the application for the warrant, then I would have knowledge of it and anything to the contrary would be a lie. And if it was a lie, then I am a liar, plain and simple. I think the old adage applies here that “a thief will lie to you and a liar will steal from you”. Truth be known a liar is a thief because he has stolen the truth from you. Now if that is not good old “COMMON SENSE”, then I’ll “eat my hat”, and if you do not recognize it for “COMMON SENSE”, then I am really wasting my time here.
The Attorney General has lied and been complicit in the Benghazi scandal by going along with the lie of the video as the cause of the attack. That has been proven to be a lie; but the administration, including the attorney general rode that horse into the ground. Why hell, he even stood by along with the rest of the administration, while the maker of the video was arrested and imprisoned. Imprisoned for making a video!!! By the way that man is still being held even though the lie the administration told has been debunked. How would you feel if you were in that person’s shoes?
If you are interested in the truth, then investigate for yourself the following actions of this attorney general. Just simply get on the internet and check out all the things this attorney general has been a part of and I think it will open your eyes. Things like the black panther voter intimidation where he refused to prosecute and lied, the “Fast and Furious” gun running debacle where he lied and a U.S. Border Agent was killed, the IRS scandal, where the attorney general’s office approved of the FBI investigating conservative groups and he lied, the AP scandal where they obtained the records of reporters phone records and he lied, and not to mention he is touted as the architect of the Marc Rich pardon during Clinton administration as assistant attorney general. This man is credited with being the grandest “tax cheat” of all times. They say he was even greater than “tax-cheat Geithner” who severed as your U.S. Secretary of Treasury. Now, isn’t this a fine “den of thieves” serving, or having served, at the pleasure of the President? Doesn’t bode well for the President, now does it? What is that old “COMMON SENSE” thing about “birds of a feather flock together”.
I did not elaborate on all the issues facing this attorney general to save space. But, let’s just say that “where there is this much smoke, there is a fire”. Remember, these are just the lies we are privy to and you can “bet the bank” there are more. It just makes “COMMON SENSE” that “if you will lie to me once, you will lie to me again”. I truly believe that this Attorney General and our President, as well, would “climb a tree to tell a lie rather than stand on the ground in the shade to tell the truth”. A sad state of affairs to say the least.
