And Your Father Smelt Of Elderberries, An Open Letter To The Attorney General

Washington, DC –-( Mr Attorney General, I have followed with great interest your performance, testimony and numerous statements to the press regarding the Fast and Furious Scandal.

And frankly, as an American Citizen I find you to be an embarrassment, an utter failure in upholding the Rule Of Law and a contemptible person.

You are unworthy of the title of US Attorney General, in fact, you have revealed, by your own words and actions that you are not even suitable to serve as a janitor in any Court of Law in the Country, let alone as an attorney and certainly not as ” The Chief Law Enforcement Officer in the Nation “.

You have clearly forgotten or more likely given your apparent hubris, simply do not care that you swore an Oath to defend and uphold the US Constitution and the laws of the United States. That means you are required to follow the laws, not disregard the ones you don’t like, in furtherance of your personal ideology and political goals. There is ample evidence to support the contention that you personally , along with several other high ranking Administration Officials, including but hardly limited to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Dept of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, your collective staff and underlings have committed numerous criminal violations of Federal and State Law, including violations of International Arms Treaties and weapons exporting laws, conspiracy to commit those same violations, perjury, providing aid or comfort to an enemy of the United States, Obstruction of Justice, and being an accessory to murder with depraved indifference.

Any single one of these violations, were they committed by a Citizen, would have resulted in near instantaneous charges being filed and a public “shaming” in the form of a publicized “perp walk” of the accused, for all the major media to follow and report on.

But for you and your acolytes, things are different. There are clearly special rules for you and your associates. You go on television and claim ignorance, you assert (falsely and blatantly) I might add, that you are committed to bringing the perpetrators to justice and smugly expect the American People to believe that. Had you ever possessed even a shred of a sense of personal honor, integrity, character, respect for the institutions of law or responsibility, you would long ago have tendered your resignation from your position.

Instead you choose to allow retaliation against several whistle blowers who exposed this program, actively shielded personnel that implemented and carried out this Operation and proclaimed to the media that anyone seeking to hold anyone, including yourself responsible was doing so out of “racism,” clearly not caring that every time someone plays the “race card” for the obvious purposes of distracting others from their own culpability, it is not only transparent, it cheapens the term to the point that people become inured against actual cases of racist behavior.

Your clear contempt for the intelligence of the American People and for the tenants of the Rule of Law, applied equally to all is breathtaking in its scope and breadth. You have single-handedly managed to cast a long and dark shadow of dishonor on yourself, your Office, Law Enforcement and the so called “Justice System” I would take this opportunity to remind you of the thoughts of a former Supreme Court Justice, commenting on behavior such as has been seen during the investigation into the Fast and Furious Scandal.

“Decency, security and liberty alike demand that government officials shall be subject to the rules of conduct that are commands to the citizen.

In a government of laws, existence of government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a law-breaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.” ~ Supreme Court Justice Louis D Brandeis

Mr. Attorney General, do you actually believe that you will escape any judgement or penalty for your actions?

While it is true that you may escape punishment at the hands of a Court of Law, judgement and punishment comes in numerous forms and is not limited to laws. Everyone of us, at some point, will face accountability for our actions, either by man, karma, fate, or a Higher Power. Sooner or later we all must accept responsibility for our actions and pay a price, and that includes you.

You do not deserve the title of Attorney General, the American People are entitled to someone much better then you have demonstrated to represent them as the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in the land. In closing, I have one more thing to say. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!
