I see several angles to this and am just throwing perspective on it, based on ...here... listen to this appropriate song as you read.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzLT6_TQmq8
Southbeach... Your perspective on this has a tinge of conspiracy theory and post hoc ergo propter hoc to it. It has big holes and missing pieces. It could be right but I'm not going hock my luggage to make a bet on it.
Art Deco maybe right about it making no logical sense that Obama would have ordered it out of revenge, but is there anything about seeking revenge that's logical anyway?
Art Deco's next statement is based on logical sense that he negated in his first sentence. (I broaden his statement)
"Assuming Obama could even do that, through any part of the federal government that
acts semi or fully autonomously, like the courts. DOJ, IRS, FBI, etc
-- whistleblowers would/should have/could have
blown the lid right off that."
I think we can all agree that logically, the only means of determining just how autonomously any part of the federal government is operating from the White House is by having access to the communications between those departments and the White House. Getting access to communications between the department heads and the man in the White House is what toppled Nixon (may his egotistical Quaker ass burn in hell) Some of you may be old enough to remember the extremes that people went through to keep the communications from being released - even firing the independent
counsel investigating the matter.
The party faithful and White House cronies vehemently decried efforts to obtain the communications as a witch hunt, making mountains out of mole hills, and a conspiracy to ruin a president.
So let's pause and reflect on the current on the uncanny parallels between those obstructions of release of communications and those between Lois Lerner of the IRS with the White House and her subordinates.
And there's another obstruction of release of communications that is currently unfolding right now that may be bigger than the one with the IRS.....
And very oddly as the emails of Lois Lerner and Hillary Clinton are being fought over...
..... The party faithful and White House cronies vehemently decry efforts to obtain the communications as a witch hunt, making mountains out of mole hills, and a conspiracy to ruin a president.
And to me it all quite clear that it's just a little bit of. ...... what's the title of that Shirley Bassey song from 1997?????
