LETTER TO THE EDITOR: A special prosecutor is needed to probe Obama administration

Tuesday, June 11, 2013 | 3:29 p.m. CDT

We are told that every presidential administration has scandal in its second term. Clearly, President Barack Obama has now brought more scandal than we can handle.

The Republicans of the House (only body where they have any control) have held informative hearings ever since they regained that control, but no matter what issues are uncovered, Obama, Eric Holder, all the accused offenders of the IRS, etc., are thumbing their noses at these Republicans.

They are trying to "run the clock out," depending upon their stated goal of changing control of the House after next year's election.

With Nancy Pelosi in control again, all the accrued problems of these dishonest Democrats would disappear.

Two former Republican presidential candidates, Steve Forbes and Mitt Romney, among others, are now calling for appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate to closure, the allegations, and if evidence is acquired, to indict the perpetrators.

If you voting readers agree that a special prosecutor is necessary, I would ask that you contact your congressional representatives and urge that this action is taken, before it is too late.

Considering that more than 60.9 million people voted against Obama -- only 4.9 million fewer than those who voted for him -- I doubt that Frank is very lonely.

Considering there's about 235 million people of voting age in the US, it would seem to me that most don't really care who's President.

In a sane world, NO ONE would care which bozo leads the clown show.

These people have NO moral authority. All they have is a sizable mob that allows them to inflict their violent ways upon the rest of us under the guise of "good governance." DC is nothing but the center of the largest gang turf-war going, and its resulting mob rule is nothing but pure evil.

The Founding Fathers properly understood the incoherence of democracy and made every effort to avoid it gaining a foothold here. Thing is, once the unconstitutional central banking cartel acquired their own foothold, ALL checks and balances became undermined, for a price. Worse yet, it's a price that WE pay, not THEM.

Ask yourself, if you had a checkbook without ever having to worry about bouncing a check, what wouldn't you buy with it? Well, such a checkbook exists, and the signature line reads "Ben Bernanke."

To argue over the machinations of the idiots in DC is to further empower them, as they are nothing but puppets of the bankster class. Until the focus is properly put upon the invisible puppeteers, NOTHING can ever change for the better.

Yet the subject is never brought up by the media (let alone intelligently discussed). Instead they rely upon DC's divide and conquer rhetoric to attract eyeballs.

@Richard Saunders:

1- First, Bravo! You didn't mention John Maynard Keynes, but that's okay.

2- If you have one or more degrees from University of Missouri I'd like to ask you a favor. (I refer to the degree format used since 1963, which is standardized except for information about the person's name, the degree awarded, and the city where the degree was conferred*.) Check yours to see the name of the city. Sounds to me like it should read, "Rolla, State of Missouri."

*- Before 1963 diplomas issued at MU and MSM (today MS&T) were VERY different, for both size and wording. If you've ever seen an old MSM diploma you wouldn't forget it: too big to be wallet-sized, but too small to justify the cost of framing it. I have a degree in each format.

@Ellis, I ran out of affordable credit before I acquired enough credits for one of those fancy pieces of paper.

Which is a good thing, as I'd be embarrassed to claim the minor in economics I would've earned from the local cult of Keynes.

In the meantime though, I've built a library with nearly the complete works of Mises, Rothbard, Hayek, Böhm-Bawerk, Hazlitt and many others who view economics as a study of human action, rather than some machine that can be manipulated and measured by the Keynesians favorite tool, aggregates.

Richard S. - Pardon me, but that seems to have been an awful lot of reading for one (as you have related to us) to have only gathered that "bankers are #1 problem and Federal Reserve only aids and abets them. Any "Occupy Wall Street" loiterer will instantly agree with that. Those that with the ideology, always hate wealth, seem bound to first. jump on the bankers. You have illustrated those in our central government as "bozo's", then indicate that we should pay no attention to them.

Problem is, in my lifetime, (longer than yours, I suspect)every offensive (detrimental) action taken by the Federal Reserve has been for one reason. To bailout or assist with the incessant, excessive deficit spending incurred by those controlling our central government. Since FDR, our Congress has been controlled by Democrats (with an occasional Republican President), until 1993. Federal Reserve went to work printing money to cover Carter's stagflation. D' controlled government made hay with the accusation that the inflation was caused by "Americans consuming too much". Bernanke's 85B$ per month printing binge is to make room for the Democrat mortgage lending meltdown. The checkbooks you have described all have had two signers P. Volcker and J.E. Carter. Ben Bernanke and Barack Obama.

I've taken a long time to make a simple point. We may not discuss (intelligently), any of our nations problems and leave out the bozo's in our central government, which will likely be proven to be the core of most of them.

If you know a way to rid ourselves of Federal Reserve without an act of Congress, you should let us in on it, or of course, continue to frequently tell us "The world Ends Tomorrow!"
