The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense

“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775

"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

Yet Another Obama Administration Scandal Surfaces

Here's the Nonsense:  Those who are pointing fingers again at the Obama administration for a few things in an Inspector General's report are just haters who want to make a big deal out of anything they can just to give this administration more troubles.  They should let them alone so they can do their job.

Here's the Horse Sense Out of control.  That's what this administration is.  This corruption is no surprise, it's just another example in a long list of issues we see come up again and again.  And it won't get better unless the American people decide to make changes.  

Not that any of us who pay attention should be surprised, but it's still stunning each time another scandal of this administration shows up.  Sharyl Attkisson, former CBS journalist who had the smarts to get out when she felt her reporting was being compromised by working where she did, is reporting on that a newly released Inspector General's report shows that Obama's Department of Homeland Security released thousands of illegal immigrants in advance of the 2013 budget cuts required by sequestration and more than 600 of them were convicted criminals.  The report shows that it was obvious these types of decisions were political.  Yet another scandal for this administration.  Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS, Verterans Administration, and on and on the list goes.

If it was only one scandal it might be that we would think that it's just political.  After all, whether we want to accept it or not, the fact is that both parties have been known to push issues against the opposing side to try to make a point. But when the list becomes this long and there are constant fights for basic information, the old adage that where there's smoke there's fire seems to apply.

The Washington Times reports that the actions of the DHS were illegal.   This is nothing new for this administration.  Breitbart reported about Senator Ted Cruz's recent report that showed 76 times President Obama has violated the law, and that doesn't count the number of times we've learned of agencies and officials throughout the administration who have also done so.

Lawless president.  Lawless administration. Lawless government.  When will it end?  Only when the American people decide to quit ignoring what's happening in our country and change their lives to live at the standards set by Judeo-Christian values and then hold our elected officials accountable to those standards.  

That is America's only hope.
