|Rep. Elijah Cummings|
|Oversight Committee Chairman|
Darrell Issa (R-CA)
One scandal after another is erupting during the Second Term of the Obama Presidency.
House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) has rankled some of his fellow Republicans along with Democrats for refusing to back down on finding out what the IRS did to conservative groups, as well as what the White House did not do for the four diplomats in Benghazi, despite their repeated pleas for increased security.
In the wake of a Democratic state senator from San Francisco indicted for bribery, influence-peddling, and also gun-running with Asian triad gang (and Islamic militants), the prior investigations into Operation Fast and Furious deserved more attention, as they expose (along with suspended California State Senator Leland Yee) the dangerous and unseemly double-standard of Democratic politicians, who want to control the guns of law-abiding citizens, yet have no problem supplying assault weapons through the Department of Justice to Mexican drug cartels: Operation Fast and Furious.
President Obama has targeted gun ownership in general throughout the United States, as though the guns themselves are the core reason for violence in this country. Why not outlaw SUVs or buses, then? Or more specifically, why not advance a blanket hand-gun ban?
The White House and the Democratic Party protecting this President are not interested in limiting violence as much as they want to disarm and render defenseless American citizens against an aggressive federal government.
Besides the other scandals, including allegations that the DOJ targeted members of the press, Issa is still investigating the IRS targeting conservative political groups, but ranking member Elijah Cummings has called these investigations an empty charade, that whatever misconduct may have occurred actually did not (even as True the Vote filed a ethics complaint against Cummings following on Oversight hearing).
In an early March hearing, Lois Lerner of the IRS plead the Fifth in order to avoid answering questions about what she knew regarding the IRS abuses against conservative groups.
After attempting to adjourn the meeting, Cummings demanded an opportunity to ask a procedural question, then launched into pontification against the whole investigation.
First of all, Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa offered ranking member Elijah Cummings the opportunity to ask a procedural question. When the mike was turned back on, Cummings condemned the IRS hearings instead of asking a questions.
Then he launched into this tired tirade:
"If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question," Cummings insisted. "I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America."
"I am tired of this," he continued. "You cannot just have a one-sided investigation. There is absolutely something wrong with that, and it is absolutely un-American."
Instead of shouting at Darrell Issa and the Republican majority investigating the rampant abuses, he should listen to the American People, who are tired of the litany of lies, fraud, and deceit flooding out of the White House.
I am tired of Rep. Cummings defending this corrupt President and his corrupted, polluted, and incompetent administration.
Let us hope that voters will get tired of the tired parade of scandals, failures, corruption, lies, intimidation, elitism, waste, etc.
I wonder if Rep. Cummings' seat could be in danger this year, too? Maryland residents should start shouting #ImTiredOfThis at their own representative, who has spent most of his time defending an indefensible President, who has been stalling and stonewalling ongoing investigations against one of the most lawless and reprehensible, unresponsive, and irresponsible administrations in modern US History.

Obamacare failures, failed foreign policy ventures. . .
