Barack Obama’s “legacy” continues to erode as more and more corruption, government abuse of power, lying, and cover up stories are exposed and made public.
In the latest derailment of the Obama tyranny express, it has been reported by The Washington Post, of all institutions, that Eric Holder and Barack Obama have declared all-out war against conservative media types at FOX NEWS.
As reported at the reference:
The Fox News Channel is outraged over new revelations that three of its reporting staffers were targeted by the U.S. Department of Justice in criminal investigations related to their attempts to obtain information from government sources.
James Rosen, the network’s chief Washington correspondent, has become a First Amendment cause celebre over his treatment by the Obama administration. But the DOJ, Fox says, also investigated the Emmy Award-winning investigative reporter William La Jeunesse and Fox News producer Mike Levine.
Rosen, according to affidavits filed by FBI agents, was considered a possible criminal co-conspirator.
The Washington Post reported Monday morning that Rosen was the subject of a Department of Justice probe in relation to his reporting about North Korea’s likely reactions to new UN sanctions in 2009. Federal investigators read his personal emails, obtained his phone records, and tracked his comings and goings through government buildings.
An FBI agent filed an affidavit in that case claiming that he thought Rosen had broken the law, ‘at the very least, either as an aider, abetter and/or co-conspirator.’
None of the three journalists targeted by the Obama administration was notified that the government was spying on his records and emails.
‘All three of our colleagues say they were never contacted by the government,’ Fox News Channel correspondent Shannon Bream reported on Monday afternoon.”
What next? Will Obama issue an Executive Order declaring the 1st Amendment “null and void” in instances where right-wing fanatics (FOX News) seek to harm the American people, IN THE OPINION OF THE ADMINISTRATION?
A simple truth emerges: Tyranny Is an evil that simply cannot be countenanced in a free and open society committed to liberty and democratic justice!
