The present administration has become so indifferent to the obligation it has to protect the rights of American citizens the time has come to ask, ask and ask again who is going to jail. It makes no difference if the apparent indifference of this administration is the result of conscious acts or conscious inaction, or if it is the result of ineptitude, it is doing such great harm to the character of this country that it must be taken to task by example. Who is going to jail?
An American veteran was allowed to languish unfairly in a Mexican jail with absolutely no concern shown by the State Department until conservative talk radio and Fox News raised such a ruckus the Mexican Authorities were moved to take the proper action and release him. No thanks to our own government. Four Americans are murdered in Benghazi, a story well known to most concerned Americans. Yet months later the present administration continues to postpone any coherent explanation of what really happened. We the people do not need a litany of excuses about why no action was taken at the appropriate time to help those under attack. We know four Americans were left to die while our government at the highest levels did absolutely nothing to help them. What we need to know now is who is going to jail? Until the present administration it has been unheard of that Americans under attack are offered no aid by a government with more than adequate resources to offer aid. Who is going to jail?
American citizens have been subjected by the IRS to harassment and unreasonable delays in conducting their legitimate business. The IRS has been used as a political weapon to obstruct citizens who might disagree with the actions of an arrogant and unscrupulous government. This is wanton disregard, of the highest order, towards the rights of citizens. We the people want to know and know immediately who is going to jail?
The free press has been intimidated and surreptitiously attacked by a government that totally disregards the first amendment rights of a free people. This is beyond the pale. Who is going to jail? The Justice Department actually lied and totally fabricated false information in order to have a Federal Judge issue an order permitting the DOJ to illegally gather personal information from a news reporter. Who is going to jail?
It has now become clear the present administration considers the average citizen expendable if that person should not demonstrate complete agreement or at least subservience to the will of the government. The President has even had the audacity to order the DOJ to investigate itself in this manner. Give me a break! Every concerned citizen should relentlessly ask the question “Who is going to Jail?”
The time is now for the appropriate members of the present administration to go to jail, and if no immediate action is taken to establish innocence or guilt of the involved persons then the ineptitude of all elected national representatives will be exposed for all to see and an aroused populace will demand complete reordering of congress at the next election cycle.
