What follows is a copy of a letter that I forwarded to our NM U.S. Senator Tom Udall today requesting non-partisan Congressional investigations into the following disturbing issues:
a) President Obama’s alleged use of the Internal Revenue Service to vex and harass his political opposition;
b) the murder of four Americans in Benghazi; and
c) the mysterious downing of the helicopter in which members of Navy SEAL Team 6 and a National Guardsman were killed on August 6, 2011, when their helicopter was shot down while on a mission to assist Army Rangers “without proper air support.”
For your information, I have also forwarded a similar letter to our NM U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich, NM U.S. Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham and NM Governor Susana Martinez.
Letter To NM U.S. Senator Udall:
"May 14, 2013
The Honorable Tom Udall
United States Senate
110 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510-3101
Dear Senator Udall:
On April 22, 2013, I wrote a letter to your office and graciously requested that:
a) you and other members of Congress take the appropriate judicial action regarding the results of the recent nonpartisan/independent review of interrogation programs that revealed indisputable evidence that the United States continues to be engaged in the practice of “torture”, which our nation’s highest officials bare the ultimate responsibility for;
b) you and other members of Congress investigate the questionable and/or mysterious circumstances surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing;
c) you and other members of the Senate vote NO on the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) that was recently passed by the house; and
d) you and other members of Congress vote NO on any other bills that may infringe on our 2ndAmendment Rights, along with any other bills that I believe are continuing to systematically erode those rights provided us under our “Constitution” and “Bill of Rights.”
For your information, to-date I have not received a reply to my letter from your office, which honestly does not surprise me, but be that as it may, I wanted to share the following new disturbing and gut-wrenching developments with you and again graciously ask for your immediate action:
On May 14, 2013, an article written by Matthew Vadum meticulously revealed how President Obama is using the Internal Revenue Service to vex and harass his political opposition, which is yet more proof that he is far more interested in hunting down his domestic adversaries than Islamic terrorists. What follows is are pertinent excerpts from said article:
“President Obama’s use of the Internal Revenue Service to vex and harass his political opposition is yet more proof that he is far more interested in hunting down his domestic adversaries than Islamic terrorists.
Congressman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) said revelations the Obama IRS singled out conservative groups for special scrutiny ought to “send a chill” up Americans’ spines.
The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee told Fox News that the tax-collection agency’s recently revealed strong-arming of political organizations “is as dangerous a problem the government can have.”
“This is something that we cannot let stand. It needs to have a full investigation.”
News that President Obama has been playing Chicago-style Saul Alinsky hardball with political activists on the Right provides more fodder to Obama’s critics in Congress — some of whom are now taking a hard look at impeaching the president and removing him from office.
Some commentators draw parallels with President Richard Nixon, noting he came dangerously close to impeachment for unleashing the IRS on his enemies.
On July 27, 1974, the House Judiciary Committee approved on a vote of 28 to 10 an article of impeachment that accused Nixon of using the nation’s tax-collection agency to punish his enemies. Facing seemingly certain impeachment in the House and removal from office by the Senate, Nixon resigned two weeks later.
On Friday, Lois G. Lerner, director of the Exempt Organizations Division of the IRS, confirmed the IRS abuses. IRS employees in the agency’s Cincinnati office targeted conservative “social welfare” nonprofits seeking recognition under section 501c4 of the Internal Revenue Code, she said. Lerner admitted that groups that included the words “tea party” or “patriot” in their documents were singled out for heightened scrutiny.
Lerner denied that orders had come from on high in Washington to make conservative activists’ lives difficult, but not too many people seem to believe her, especially given President Obama’s frequent promises to dole out punishment to his opponents.
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), a former tax lawyer, said she couldn’t believe that junior IRS employees took it upon themselves to challenge conservative groups.
“A low-level functionary in Ohio would have zero jurisdictional authority to intimidate an applicant from New Mexico, or California or Georgia,” Bachmann told WND.com. Such an order had to come from the top, she said.
“We learned to our horror in Benghazi it appears that every move that was made was based on politics,” Bachmann said. “Now it appears the president was willing to use the most feared agency in the U.S. for his own political purposes.”
Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice told WND.com, that he too didn’t buy the administration’s line. “We knew from the very start that this intimidation tactic was coordinated and focused directly on specific organizations,” he said.
The Obama IRS tried to intimidate conservative groups by demanding “the identification of members, how they are selected, who they associate with, and even what they discuss,” Sekulow said.
Catherine Engelbrecht, founder of the good-government group True the Vote, which fights for electoral integrity, said she began experiencing troubling problems with the Obama administration back in 2010.
When True the Vote, based in Houston, Texas, sought 501c3 nonprofit status under the federal tax code, multiple federal agencies began investigating the group, along with Engelbrecht’s family businesses.
“We applied for nonprofit C-3 status early in 2010. Since that time the IRS has run us through a gauntlet of analysts and hundreds of questions over and over again. They’ve requested to see each and every tweet I’ve ever tweeted or Facebook post I’ve ever posted. They also asked to know every place I’ve ever spoken since our inception and to whom, and everywhere I intend to speak in the future.”
“This is what the beginning of tyranny looks like,” Engelbrecht said. “My family and I have lived with great concern that we would be subject to even greater government abuses if we were vocal about what they were doing to us because of our political views and our efforts to increase governmental accountability.”

On May 10, 2013, an article written by Sharon Rondeau, The Posted & Email revealed what seems to be President Obama’s true agenda. What follows is said article in its entirety for effect:
“(May 10, 2013) — A press conference hosted by Freedom Watch at the National Press Club on Thursday depicted family members of Navy SEAL Team 6 and a National Guardsman killed on August 6, 2011 when their helicopter was shot down asking Obama to conduct a thorough investigation of the cause.
A total of 30 Americans died in the crash.
One couple of a SEAL who died stated that Adm. William McCraven, head of the Joint Special Operations Center (JSOC), was untruthful when he met with them this past January to discuss the circumstances of their son’s death and the presumed investigation.
Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) told Tom Trento, the video company host (beginning at 7:05) that the SEALS were placed in danger “without the helicopter they needed.” Gohmert said that “We are completely messed up” if the American strategy is to “win hearts and minds” of Islamics rather than to protect U.S. servicemen and women.
The helicopter in which the SEALS were flying on a mission to assist Army Rangers, referred to as “Extortion 17,” was reportedly built in the 1960s and refurbished in 1985. The pre-conference press release stated that the SEALS were sent on their mission “without proper air support.”
One of those killed had warned his parents that after SEAL Team 6 was identified as the unit which had carried out the bin Laden raid on May 1, 2011, his life and theirs were in danger. Three months later, he and 29 others were dead.
Rep. Michele Bachmann and former Rep. Allen West were also in attendance at the press conference. Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely (Ret.), Lt. Gen. William (Jerry) Boykin (Ret.) and Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney (Ret.) as well as former Navy SEALS Ben Smith and Larry Bailey.
Writer Diana West attended, asked questions, and spoke after ward with Trento.
Adm. James “Ace” Lyons (Ret.) of the Center for Security Policy spoke at the press conference and stated afterward that members of The Muslim Brotherhood, which has identified the United States as a sworn enemy, have gained a presence in all government departments.
Atty. Larry Klayman said that the SEAL team was exposed to danger after Osama bin Laden was killed in May 2011. “Our Navy SEALS and National Guardsmen – their identities were released initially by our president and vice president unnecessarily. This was classified information, and as a result, as you’ll hear, the fallen servicemen that we’re talking about today literally had targets on their backs.”
Klayman has an Obama eligibility lawsuit pending with the Alabama Supreme Court and has accused Obama of committing treason against the United States of America for leaking national security secrets in June 2012 and supporting “radical Muslim interests such as…the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and throughout the Middle East.”
The first interview Obama gave after having been sworn in, albeit incorrectly, was with an Arab television network. Soon thereafter, he departed on a trip to the Middle East purportedly to “reach out to the Arab world as the region struggles to find peace.”
Earlier this year, Obama again traveled to the Middle East, specifically to Israel and Jordan. CBS News reported:
Gone are the authoritarian regimes and leaders in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Yemen, and the once seemingly indestructible Assad regime in Syria is tottering on the brink of collapse. Uncertainty abounds in the wake of the revolutions that have convulsed the Arab world for the past two years and shaken many of the strong but imperfect pillars of stability on the planet’s most politically volatile patch of land…,
Beginning in December 2010, popular uprisings occurred in Tunisia, Yemen, Egypt, Syria and Libya. While governments were replaced, those of Tunisia and Egypt adopted Islamic-style regimes, with Egypt’s Mohammed Morsi seizing greater powers shortly after assuming office, resulting in violent protests, death and destruction in addition to a faltering economy.
Syria has been embroiled in a civil war which has killed upward of 60,000 and in which Obama insists the U.S. should be involved. It is suspected that the U.S. compound in Libya, which was attacked on September 11 and resulted in the deaths of four Americans, was involved in transferring arms to the Syrian rebels seeking to unseat Bashir Assad, but that the rebel groups include Al Qaeda and other terrorist group members.
CBS described Obama’s 2013 Middle East trip as a “hand-holding venture.”
Joining a growing chorus of retired military veterans, U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner said during a recentinterview that only “the president” could have given the “stand-down” orders described in sworntestimony to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Wednesday which prevented military assistance from reaching Benghazi. According to news reports, Obama retired early on the evening of September 11 after learning that Americans were under attack.
Speaking toward the end of the press conference, Klayman said that we are living in revolutionary times and called for peaceful efforts to revert America back to its Judeo-Christian heritage, ethics and principles. He called upon the media to report his and others’ findings to the public.
On Friday, in a piece without a bylinn, Fox News reported that those speaking at the presser “tried to reopen the book on the crash.”
The Post & Email does not publish articles without including the writer’s name.
U.S. News & World Report provided coverage of the press conference which included the paragraph, “While the press conference was long on speculation and short on concrete evidence, the family members and their supporters didn’t pull any punches.”
Glenn Beck’s The Blaze provided a full report.
On the matter of illegal immigration, Obama’s “Gang of 8″ is reportedly ignoring input from the union president of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) division of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), who told talk show host Mark Levin that members of the pro-illegal immigration group La Raza “are running our agency.” Chris Crane additionally told Levin that Border Patrol agents are no longer able to perform their jobs because their arrest powers have been confiscated by the regime. He and nine other ICE employees have filed a lawsuit against the Obama regime.
Obama’s Department of Justice has sued numerous states seeking to uphold federal immigration law already in place and threatened others with lawsuits for passing nullification or sovereignty laws under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the Bill of Rights.
Obama has given billions of dollars to “green energy” companies which produced virtually no jobs and in many cases, went bankrupt. The executives of at least one company, Solyndra, had been his financial supporters.
In the field of education, Obama created the “Race to the Top” contest in which states could compete for the most funding for their public schools while at the same time agreeing to accept the new Department of Education’s “Common Core” curriculum. The new program reportedly abolishes standard subjects and methods of teaching in favor of an analytical approach which experts report contains Marxist ideology. In California, teachers must agree to teach the new Common Core methodology or lose their certification. Christian students are today increasinglypersecuted by public school officials.
In 2009, the names “Malik Shabazz,” head of the New Black Panthers, and “W. Ayers [Bill],” former domestic terrorist, appear on the White House visitor logs, although an official reportedly said, “Those are not who you think they are,” citing the “transparency” of the regime.
Putative Attorney General Eric Holder was once and may still be an angry black man who blames whites for the perceived ills of the country.
Obama has presided over the greatest economic downturn since the Great Depression but raised taxes earlier this year. However, he told Texas high school students on Thursday that “We’re poised for progress.”
Obama praises open homosexuals and abortion and lies about the “benefits” of his “health care reform,” which many Americans are discovering is costing them much more each year than before it was implemented.
Members of the Obama regime have intimidated, threatened, harassed, and insulted law-abiding members of the media who have attempted to report truthfully on the actions of government in keeping with the First Amendment. State Department officials working under Hillary Clintoncreated a scenario whereby Libya charge d’affaires Gregory Hicks, who had questioned Susan Rice’s description of the Benghazi terrorist attack as “a protest” on national television on September 16, was rendered unemployed and then demoted to a desk job following his many years of recognized outstanding service.
While infusing Islam into the military, all government agencies and American society, Obama’s Justice Department seeks to deport a Christian homeschooling family because “homeschooling is not a fundamental right.” However, Holder has selectively failed to prosecute “his people” for breaking the law and illegal immigrants from voting.
During the SEAL Team 6 press conference, one of the speakers remarked that the military has been infiltrated with political correctness to the point that “the enemy” is no longer known.
Do the American people know who the real enemy is?
Is it conceivable that with Obama’s history of “palling around with terrorists” who trample on the American flag and set off bombs at national landmarks, he was placed in office to carry out the worst against America?
Is that why the parents of the Navy SEALS have only empty promises?”

On May 10, 2013, an article written by Jeffrey T. Kuhner, The Washington Times meticulously revealed how this president is presiding over an administration that has engaged in the systematic abuse of power. What follows are pertinent excerpts from said article:
“President Obama is presiding over an administration that has engaged in the systematic abuse of power. This is the real meaning of the Benghazi tragedy.
State Department whistleblowers testified Wednesday at a House hearing about the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2012, in Libya, which resulted in the killing of four Americans — including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. Contrary to the liberal media’s spin, the testimony was damning and devastating.
The whistleblowers said that prior to the attacks, consulate officials repeatedly asked for extra security. The reason: Benghazi was unsafe. Rampaging jihadists had forced out British diplomats and the Red Cross. The U.S. Consulate had been attacked twice — the mission’s walls were blown up — before Sept. 11. Yet senior State Department officials denied the requests. Eric Nordstrom, the officer in charge of diplomatic security, testified that the consulate did not meet the protection “standards” required under the law. The consulate was officially designated as a “high-risk,” “high-threat” target — one of a few such diplomatic missions around the world. Mr. Nordstrom rightly pointed out that only one person had the legal authority to deny or approve the requests for extra security: then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Hence, Mrs. Clintonlied when she testified in January at a Senate committee. Mrs. Clinton claimed she did not know about any enhanced security demands. This is impossible. An April 19, 2012, State Departmentcable bearing her signature explicitly denies the security requests. Under the law, only Mrs. Clinton had the ability to authorize the cable.
Moreover, according to Gregory H. Hicks, the State Department’s deputy chief of the Libya mission, Mrs. Clinton told Stevens to go to Benghazi. He was there under her personal orders. He was tasked with transforming the U.S. mission into a permanent consulate — despite the rising threat of terrorist violence and the lack of security. Knowing the dangerous situation, she sent him on a suicide mission. Mrs. Clinton has American blood on her hands.
The hearing revealed another bombshell — one that has the potential to damage Mr. Obama’s presidency. An email was sent on Sept. 12, 2012 — one day after the attack — to senior State Department officials by Elizabeth Jones, acting assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs. Among those who received it was Mrs. Clinton’s chief of staff, Cheryl Mills; State Department spokeswoman (and Clinton hack) Victoria Nuland, and Undersecretary of State for Management, Patrick F. Kennedy, a key Clinton adviser. The email’s conclusion: Ansar al-Sharia, an affiliate of al Qaeda in Libya, was directly and solely responsible for the terrorist atrocities at Benghazi.
This means the Obama administration knew from the beginning that Benghazi had nothing to do with a “flash mob” or an anti-Muslim video. The entire narrative was concocted to preserve Mr. Obama’s re-election. The central narrative of his campaign was that he had “smashed” and “defeated” al Qaeda. “The tide of war is receding,” he said.
Benghazi threatened to expose Mr. Obama’s false claims. Rather than being on the run, al Qaedawas resurgent. It had just stormed a U.S. diplomatic mission, burned it to the ground, killed four Americans and dragged our ambassador’s body through the streets. Jihadists had pulled off a spectacular, deadly terrorist attack. In the middle of a closely contested campaign, this revelation could have cost Mr. Obama the election.
