Sign The White House Petition: Investigate The ATF For Bullying and Harassment of Whistleblowers

27 lousy signatures since December 3.

Here’s a post from the Clean Up ATF site that gives you an idea of how bad the snitch culture has gotten as the ATF:

Support for those and their families suffering from stress related to ATF management abuses:

We have a therapist out of Arizona who is conducting doctoral research on adolescent, teen and young adult mental health challenges. She currently works in practice and on hospital units with this population along with their family systems. She has been successful in identifying stressors in families where one or more parent is in law enforcement.

Her next research project will focus on stress related injuries regarding ATF agents who suffer abuse at the hands of their employer and the effects this in turn has on their families.

She goes under the name DocPowerPuff here on CleanUpATF.org. She is available to help anyone who needs resources relating to their or their family’s stress issues in this area. Of course any communications with her will be strictly confidential. There is no fee. This is simply a service she is offering to us as a way to help in an area she is passionate about while she collects ever more information for her research.

I have sadly watched many through the years lose their lives to suicide, addictions, and other mental health issues due to this particular kind and level of stress. I believe her next project will be as ground breaking as her last one and I feel truly blessed to be a part of it. I pray that one day her work will help to change the current broken system where victims have no real protections or outlets other than the government sending these people to their so-called experts who many times merely continue the abuse.

Show your support for ATF whistleblowers: sign the petition and retweet. Let’s make this thing go viral.

UPDATE:

FYI: You do need to register with the White House in order to vote – just a name and a email address. Worth the trouble, I think.

As Morgen said a few months ago, when Verum Serum started a Repeal ObamaCare petition –

We’re 13 months out from the election at this point. It’s time to stand up to the Administration and let them know what we really think about their policies. And if that doesn’t inspire you to subject yourself to never-ending spam from the President, then use that old Hotmail or Yahoo address you never use, or just create a new one and use it only for this.

Is anyone else having trouble signing the petition? I’ve been getting this after I sign in:

Dem Congressman Unloads On Obama: ‘Arrogant “I’m right, you’re wrong” demeanor alienated many potential allies’

Wow. At The Hill’s Congress Blog, “Where congressmen come to blog”, Rep. Dennis Cardoza (D-Calif.) decided to take a break from the protracted payroll tax debate on the Hill, and absolutely roast Obama in an oped. Here are a couple of excerpts:

‘I’M RIGHT, YOU’RE WRONG’

Early in his administration, President/Professor Obama repeatedly referred to “teaching moments.” He would admonish staff, members of Congress and the public, in speeches and in private, about what they could learn from him. Rather than the ideological or corrupt “I’m above the law” attitudes of some past administrations, President Obama projected an arrogant “I’m right, you’re wrong” demeanor that alienated many potential allies. Furthermore, the president concentrated power within the White House, leaving Cabinet members with no other option but to dutifully carry out policies with which they had limited input in crafting and might very well disagree. From my experience, this was especially true in the environmental, resources, housing and employment areas. Not by coincidence, these areas have also been responsible for much of the president’s harshest critiques.

LECTURES vs. LISTENING

One former administration official told me directly that the people in the White House “NEVER TALK TO REAL PEOPLE.” Another former Obama staffer confided to me that it was clear to him that the president didn’t mind giving speeches (lectures), but really avoided personal contact with members of Congress and folks outside the Beltway. “He doesn’t seem to derive energy from spending time with regular people the way Clinton did. He rallies to give speeches for the big crowds, but avoids individual contact,” the former staffer recalled. This “arms-length” attitude extends to top decision-makers in the president’s administration. A senior housing official recently told me that, despite the fact that he was responsible for crafting policies to stem the foreclosure crisis, he had personally never met with a homeowner who had been foreclosed on.

The president’s disinterest in input from those outside his inner circle is costing him many wasted opportunities. Recently, a senator told me Obama went to his/her state, but issued an invitation for the senator to attend the event only the day before. “I represent a must-win state and lead the president in approval ratings by nearly 20 points. He was totally off-message for what my people wanted to hear. Doesn’t the White House get it? I don’t need him, he needs ME!”

Read the whole thing. He’s a Dem-Soc, so he still prefers Obama over a Republican, but it’s obvious, that even people in Obama’s  own camp are tired of being lectured to.

Another good piece about Ο making the rounds by The New American: College Mate: Obama Was an “Ardent” “Marxist-Leninist”:

I’ve written about Dr. John Drew’s interactions with Obama in college, here before, but Selwyn Duke adds his fresh perspective to the story:

We have in the President a man who:

1. Had communist Frank Marshall Davis as childhood mentor.

2. Was a flat-out Marxist-Leninist in college.

3. Has no known history of renouncing these views.

4. Later in life built an alliance with a “small c” communist and other assorted radicals.

5. Upon achieving high office, appointed avowed communists to his administration.

Given this profile, what is the radical position? That the man is a communist or at least a communist sympathizer? Or that he is just your everyday moderate politician?

Perhaps we don’t have proof beyond a reasonable doubt that would stand up in a criminal proceeding for either of the above propositions. But asking for it is unreasonable and irresponsible. In the court of public opinion, there must be no higher burden than in a civil court: a preponderance of the evidence. And a preponderance of it in the President’s case points to a simple conclusion: Barack Obama is likely a communist or communist sympathizer.

Now, there are many reasons why people would deny what is plain about Obama. The most obvious is partisan loyalty, but there is another factor: The “it”-couldn’t-happen-here mentality.

We see this when people are shocked to learn that a neighbor is a serial killer or child molester and say that “he seemed so normal” or when there is a heinous crime in a neighborhood and residents just can’t believe that “it” could happen in their little Mayberry. In the example relevant here, an American President could never be a communist sympathizer. Sure, you read in history books about such leaders attaining power in places such as Cambodia, Russia, and North Korea. But the US of A? “It” is something that happens to the other guy’s nation.

Of course, this isn’t reality. Say what we will about American “exceptionalism,” the fact is that we receive no special dispensation from the laws governing man. There is no “it” that can’t happen here. And while we don’t vote for our next-door neighbor, we do choose our President. We’d be wise to make sure that, some years hence, we’re not witnessing disaster with our mouths agape and left saying, “But he seemed so normal.”

UPDATE:

An example of that famous Obama arrogance on display as noted by Keith Koffler at White House Dossier: Obama 50 Minutes Late for Press Conference

Apparently he is habitually late to pressers and at least in this case – he didn’t bother to apologize to reporters.

AZ Republican Pushing For a Vote of “No Confidence” In Atty Gen Eric Holder

The Daily Caller reports:

Arizona Republican Rep. Paul Gosar has filed a resolution in the House of Representatives pushing for vote of “no confidence” in Attorney General Eric Holder.

The resolution, introduced Monday afternoon, is a formal way to exhibit congressional disdain for Holder as the investigation into Operation Fast and Furious proceeds. It would also be an initial step toward some House Republicans’ plan to formally remove him from office if he won’t resign.

The resolution, officially numbered H. Res. 490, states that “it is the sense of the House of Representatives that Congress has lost confidence in the Attorney General of the United States.”

In a statement, Gosar denounced Holder’s continued refusal to comply with lawfully issued subpoenas and other official congressional requests for information.

“It is imperative that the citizens of our nation have confidence in our Attorney General,” Gosar said in the statement. “After months of evasive answers, silence and outright lies it is time that Congress speak up on behalf of the many people who have or will fall victims to the firearms in the flawed gunrunning operation Fast & Furious.”

One year ago today, The Washington Post published its “Hidden Life of Guns” article exposing how under-regulated gun sales along the Mexican border were sending firearms into that country feeding its crime and instability.The paper’s four-reporter team operated as full-partners of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives PR department receiving internal statistics, documents and even an interrogation video.One of the two gun stores were correctly singled out by the Post: Lone Wolf in Arizona and Carter Country in Texas. But, one year later, we know it was for the wrong reasonsIt was on a Dec. 13 Houston’s KRIV-TV news broadcast that the lawyer for Carter Country, responding to that morning’s report in the Post, made the outrageous charge that agents from the BATFE actively encouraged reluctant Carter Country employees to sell weapons to suspected “straw purchasers.”

UPDATE:

The Hill:

Nearly two-dozen Republicans are backing legislation stating that Congress “has lost confidence” in Eric Holder to continue as attorney general.

The resolution, introduced by Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) and supported by 21 GOP co-sponsors, resolves “that it is the sense of the House of Representatives that Congress has lost confidence in the Attorney General of the United States.”

Anyone taking bets on when NBC will dip its toes in the water and report on Fast and Furious? Will they wait until the impeachment hearings to do their first report or until after Holder’s impeached?

The deeply corrupt and radical Obama regime can only continue its lawless reign if a significant percentage of American citizens remain in the dark.

The famously sycophantic Brian Williams is simply doing what he can to ensure that.
