Not Blind, Color Blind, Or Transparent

Such is the modus operandi in the administration that, according to candidate-turned President Barack Obama, is not open, not transparent, and not for equal justice but for a non-equal ‘social justice.’

The warnings of what Obama was all about when he was a candidate, which were laughed off as just angry white folk rhetoric, have all come to fruition this past 18 months. And the most egregious examples of this happened this week.

Two biggies that the Obama administration got a pass from the dead media watchdog were the dropping of a case which, by any other color, was nothing short of voter intimidation and a level of a ‘hate crime’ involving a black version of the KKK called the ‘new’ Black Panthers and the appointment of a czar to be in charge of Obamacare.

The Black Panthers were already guilty by default judgement when they failed to appear in court. All that was left was their arrest and sentencing. But AG Eric Holder’s people stepped in and said, nevermind. Case dismissed.

The amount of restraint necessary, if not pure journalistic malpractice, to not make THAT a front page above-the-fold story is both amazing and disgraceful at the same time.

Then, the recess appointing of Donald M. Berwick to administer the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services was not done because Republicans would use the filibuster or try to delay him from getting the appointment. On the contrary, Republicans very much wanted to have confirmation hearings in order to hear his testimony on his widely known ideas on the rationing of health care and on the redistribution of wealth to administer health care. Like Obamacare itself, which was put into law by by-passing the normal legislative process, this appointment was made to be anything but open and transparent. But hey, you can’t say we didn’t warn you what Obama was all about.

This is not an argument about ‘all presidents make recess appointments, so this is no different. Republicans are just upset because Obama is black,’ or some such nonsense. At issue here is that the reason for the recess appointment was to keep the people from knowing exactly what Obama and Donald Berwick have in store for us regarding government-run health care.

Republicans, like the rest of America, would want to be assured that there won’t be any rationing (death panel) of health care under Obamacare or any form of government-run health care. Obama knew that having open hearings on his confirmation would bring all that out in the open for even the most fervent of Obama supporters to see.

refrain . . .
