Department of Justice Caught Going ‘Chicago’

The most UN-reported news story for today is the disclosing (under FOIA) of emails from the Obama Justice Department to the George Soros-funded ‘media watchdog’ organization called Media Matters.

These emails are not describing what the Justice Department did on such-and-such case. These are emails suggesting stories that would be harmful to Obama’s critics and helpful to the administration. No surprise here. It’s the Chicago way. The law doesn’t matter. Look how they’ve changed their tune.

There’s a BIG problem with this on so many levels.

The Justice Department’s mission is . . .

To enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law; to ensure public safety against threats foreign and domestic; to provide federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; to seek just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior; and to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.

It does not include colluding with a media organization to produce propaganda favorable to the administration.

The Justice Department is not supposed to act like Chicago thugs to intimidate anybody. Like people who follow and report on ‘Fast and Furious.’ The gun-running scheme that armed Mexican drug cartels. It’s just not in their mission statement, and probably illegal.

The tax-free status of Media Matters hinges upon their actions being non-partisan. Colluding with the executive branch on story lines against people, news organizations, or a political party is not included.

Holder, and his boss, have to go. Media Matters’ tax-exempt status has to go with it. There’s plenty enough probable cause to investigate whether other organizations might have similar ties to the administration.

Keep a look-out for the kind of coverage (if any) this story gets. And can I emphasis any more the importance of this administration being thrown out of office in November?
