Hope and Change? "We Hope You Change Your Testimony, General"

Gary Fouse

"Gen. William Shelton, head of the Air Force Space Command, told House members in a classified briefing earlier this month that he was pressured to change prepared congressional testimony in a way that would favor a large company funded by Philip Falcone, a major Democratic donor, congressional sources told Fox News."

Remember the heady days of President Obama's campaign when he kept promising "Hope and Change"?

We all figured-You all figured there would be no more politics as usual, pay to play and government favors for those who contributed big bucks, right?

Oh yee suckers.


Let us remember one thing-especially you folks who say, "They all do it." When you testify before Congress, you do so under oath. If what General Shelton says is accurate, we are talking about subornation of perjury. And for you UC Santa Cruz Community Studies majors, that is a crime. Take it from one who has testified under oath hundreds of times-and always did so honestly. There should be no tolerance for this.

If this keeps up, the Obama administration will catch up with the Clinton administration in scandals.

I have been concerned by the current administration’s policies towards the Middle East. Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann on Friday expressed regret over the fall of US ally Hosni Mubarak “while President Obama sat on his hands." This sitting on his hands, as I have mentioned several times, goes back to the Iranian uprising in 2009.

Earlier this year Obama attempted to put Israel on the US State Department’s list of State Sponsors of Terror; however, pro-Hamas Turkey is to chair an Obama backed counter-terrorism body. This panel is not to include Israel and is being done quietly, in the shadows of the UN General Assembly this week. Hillary Clinton calls this “smart power approach to counterterrorism,” and described the founding group as “traditional allies, emerging powers and Muslim-majority countries.” I call it another attempt to subjugate the power and strength of America to its enemies.

There is also that little and far too under-reported “want” from the administration to put in a direct phone line to Tehran.
