Begone, Pesky IGs

Well, the Hussein Administration and hiz posse, the Congress, are taking steps to ensure that no one will know for sure who is raping who in the government. A viking mentality has taken over in virtually every government agency that gets money from the government, with wholesale plundering and pillaging going on as if there was a Bridezilla gown sale, and these government employees, (you know, these people who work for us) are busy rooting like wild hogs in our wallets, and they do not want any prying eyes.

To that end, they have begun firing, or causing to resign, several Inspectors General, the people who are supposed to safeguard our agencies, and oversee responsible spending and sound business practices. But Lord help you if you are an IG who has questions about possible improprieties- you’re going to be canned.

Last month, the International Trade Commission dismissed its inspector general and President Obama fired Gerald Walpin, inspector general at the Corporation for National and Community Service. Also, Amtrak’s inspector general retired suddenly after delivering to leadership of the federally backed corporation an independent audit alleging interference with his probes. Amtrak said retirement arrangements had been made before the analysis was delivered.

Federal watchdogs and their investigative and auditing staffs are tasked with rooting out government corruption or investigating sensitive personnel matters. According to the Government Accountability Office, there are at least 69 inspector general offices across the federal government, with new ones established as the need arises. The president appoints approximately 30 IGs, while the remainder are appointed directly by agency leadership. Rules and reporting structures vary.

That’s not all of the story, either- while some are presidential appointments, most are appointed through the agencies they are supposed to guard and oversee, but the Resident wants more control over any possible negative news- after all, that would be “getting off message”, which is supposed to be all sweetness and light, not raping and pillaging the nation’s treasury. 

Whoops- too late- that has already been done-but there is surely no need for people to know how badly this is being done to them, their children, and their grandchildren, thus the tightening of the IG positions, many more of whom will now directly answer to the Resident.

Inspectors general at five financial regulatory agencies are objecting to legislation that would elevate their positions to the presidential-appointment level, arguing that the move would compromise their ability to conduct independent investigations.

The bill would elevate the five officials at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the National Credit Union Administration, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp.

You notice the agencies that the Resident wants more control of, right? All of them are with the financial community and regulate your money in some form or fashion, and pretty much guarantee that you will never hear a negative report, no matter how bad the situation becomes. And it is already bad, but apparently in Hussein’s mind, transparency doesn’t mean what everybody in the English- speaking world believes the definition to be. Or, here’s a revelation- he LIES. I am kind of leaning in the lie direction, myself, because there’s just too much BS in anything he says for a rational mind to  digest.

So begins the dismantling of the financial institutions of America, from our bank account into their pockets. This is still just the beginning, you know- he still has more pain for us, and it will be coming.

“We remain unconvinced that a presidentially appointed IG is more independent than one that reports to a bipartisan board,” said Danielle Brian, executive director of the Project on Government Oversight, which tracks government watchdogs.

“I think you can be more independent reporting to a bipartisan board than being at the mercy of the president’s good graces,” she said.

Though the bill passed the House, its fate in the Senate is uncertain. Both chambers continue to probe the Amtrak and ITC situations and an allegation of possible interference with inspector general investigations at the Library of Congress.

Walpin’s dismissal drew the most attention, however. Obama dismissed him after the agency’s bipartisan board of directors contacted the White House counsel’s office about his behavior at a May board meeting. In an initial letter to lawmakers, Obama stated that he had lost confidence in Walpin. Several lawmakers objected, and the White House provided documents outlining its reasons.

And all of this without the comedy of “Stuart Smalley”, or as he is less known, Al Franken- All I know is we as a nation need to wake up, or we’re going to be like Scarlett O’Hara  after the rape of Georgia, grubbing for beets in the post- apocalyptic  world that Hussein is busy creating for us.

Oh won’t that be fun.
