“Experience has shown, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.” —Thomas Jefferson
On April 3rd I detailed the happenings of the GSA and their corrupt spending practices in, GSA, Clowns, Mindreaders and Sushi. So, this morning at 5:50 AM I am watching Fox News and the narrative detailing a report on Jeffrey Neely, the western regional commissioner for GSA.
Representative Elijah Cummings, (D) Maryland made references to internal documents indicating that Jeff Neely was gleefully spending taxpayer funds like crowned royals. Neely and his wife were enjoying living large off of the taxpayers and were giddy about it.
Check out the Fox News Video, HERE.
HACKS. If ever there was a consummate hack, this is the guy. Nothing says, “F*ck you!” louder than a government hack like Jeff Neely funding his lavish lifestyle, not just for him but for his family, at taxpayer expense. Using the hard-working Americans for ones’ personal piggy bank.
and if none of this were enough, Jeff Neely was called to answer allegations in front of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee ( that, in and of itself is an oxymoron) on Monday for congressional hearings about the GSA Las Vegas scandal. Neely sat there stone-faced and expressionless as outraged lawmakers chidedand scolded his activities. …Democrats and Republicans alike!
So, just when you think it cannot possibly get any more dicey….
“Mr. Neely, what is your title at GSA?” inquired Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.).
“Mr. Chairman, on the advice of counsel, I respectfully decline to answer based upon my Fifth Amendment constitutional privilege.”
Congressman Issa asks yet another question….
“Mr. Neely, did you attend the 2010 Western Regional Conference in Las Vegas?”
Again, Neely responds…
“Mr. Chairman, on the advice of counsel, I respectfully decline to answer based upon my Fifth Amendment constitutional privilege,”
Therafter when Issa instructs Neely to remain for the rest of the hearing at the back of the room, Neely makes a mad dash for the elevator with a mad swarm of press in tow, disregarding the committee chair’s instruction.
There also exists an allegation that his wife made representations that she was a federal employee as part of this “lifestyles of the rich and infamous junket” She should go to jail, too.
And, when all is said and done, this is not the end of it…GSA is just but one government agency and now there is word that GSA is not alone in this rank abuse of the people they serve. I cannot see how the Obama presidency can survive something like this….just not seeing it. But, I’ve been wrong before.
The following excerpt was taken from the Czech Republic Magazine, Prager Zeitung‘ April 28, 2011 edition where the writer states,
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”
Prager Zeitung reasons most compellingly why the Obamas of our era get elected. But if there is one constant that remains its that the nation is on a downward slide. this latest saga in the GSA fraud and waste debacle evidences that. In fact, it likely only scratches the surface.
When we look at the long list of dealings this administration has facilitated. Our tolerance for rank corruption such as this will be tested in November. If we do not care, Obama will be re-elected….
These people are crooks. We need them out of their jobs, their posts and most importantly, out of the oval office….the whole lot of them.
