Mark Caserta: Conservatives must stand firm for justice

The Obama administration has been so ridden with scandal, Americans are becoming desensitized to the muck and mire surrounding Capitol Hill. But scurrilous behavior and a blatant disregard for the constitutional functions of our republic can’t be ignored.

During the Obama presidency, headlines have been inundated by scandals involving dereliction by the Justice Department such as the Fast and Furious gun-walking operation, the unwarranted surveillance of the media, and most recently the IRS targeting of conservative groups.

Liberals may want these stories to just go away, but America deserves better.

But the chief law enforcement officer of the United States, the man charged with upholding our nation’s laws, Attorney General Eric Holder, has instead been grossly negligent in his duties to the American people.

Consider Operation Fast and Furious, the infamous gun-walking program by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms that allowed guns to flow into Mexico in an attempt to track them back to notorious drug cartels.

The program was approved at the highest levels of the Justice Department and put thousands of illegally purchased weapons into the hands of drug lords. One of these guns was found at the murder scene of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in December 2009. During Congressional investigations, Holder dodged questions, was inconsistent in his testimony and refused to comply with Congress’ subpoena for documents related to the operation. With bipartisan support, Holder became the first head of the Justice Department in U.S. history to be held in contempt of Congress.

Evidence also shows that Holder committed perjury when he testified under oath to Congress about the Justice Department’s investigation of Fox News Chief Washington Correspondent James Rosen.

Last year in May, Holder testified before the House Judiciary Committee that he was not involved in nor had knowledge of a potential prosecution of Rosen as a “co-conspirator” in alleged violations of the Espionage Act. But three days later, the Justice Department released documents authorizing such an investigation of Mr. Rosen, which required approval from the Attorney General. This proved Holder knew of the investigation. Holder has since placed a “gag order” on members of the Justice Department, prohibiting them from answering further questions about the scandal.

Holder is also grievously failing the American people by refusing to appoint a special prosecutor to independently examine the IRS scandal. Mounting evidence shows that IRS officials were directing the illegal practice of targeting groups based on political affiliation, which is a federal crime.

Holder is just a tool in the Obama shed for “progressively” changing America. It’s an indescribable shame that there are liberals willing to compromise the very soul of our nation to propagate their progressive agenda.

Conservatives must not falter during these tumultuous times.

As President Reagan warned, “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.”

My advice to conservatives: Become even more tenacious about demanding justice in the United States and speaking out against the progressive movement.

Only conservatives stand between our republic and those who would sacrifice it.

    Mr. Caserta,

    I noticed that you are writing about the Progressive movement. I agree that it really is a fanatical religious movement born during the era of Darwinism. It was simply the desire of very rich men playing god. I liken their laws/central planning to the legalism of the Pharisees. They always know what is best for everyone.

    The soft, sinister underbelly of this movement is found at its inception and best exemplified in the 1928 Supreme Court case, Buck v Bell, which legalized forced sterilization. (purifying the gene pool)

    It wasn’t until 1974 when the last program, in North Carolina, was finally ended. Another term for forced sterilization is eugenics which was birthed by Darwin’s cousin Francis Galton.

    History is interesting when you research it outside of school textbooks that are always screened, and published, by liberal progressives. But the gatekeepers are losing with the advent of the Internet.

    Here is a story today at Tea Party Economist,, about this which includes two very important video reports: one about the North Carolina forced sterilization of black people as surprisingly broadcast by NBC in 2012.

    The other video at that link is an interview of Margaret Sanger, queen of abortion, by Mike Wallace in 1957. Sanger confronted the views of the Catholic church and was caught lying several times. It was in the early 1920’s that Sanger often preached at KKK rallies supporting sterilization of black people. Liberals are desperate to hide this racism from the public. Naturally Wallace ignored the racial element of her crimes.

    I wrote in on the Herald Dispatch comment section in response to a Hankins piece against the Bible. In my comments i wrote extensively about the early history of the Progressives. Hankins refused to debate this in public by saying he didn’t have the time to respond to my comment. I don’t blame him since the facts in indefensible today.

    I hope you will write often about this sinister movement because there is a mountain of evidence against them that the public knows nothing about.
