Censure Reid?

Ralph Benko says Harry Reid’s Neo-McCarthyist Vilification Of The Koch Brothers Begs For Censure.

“In conducting a campaign of vilification and of leveling an accusation of “un-American” Harry Reid is disgracing the United States Senate in ways comparable to the misconduct of Joe McCarthy. Only by censuring Harry Reid can the United States Senate regain dignity. Harry Reid deserves censure for Neo-McCarthyism.”

But, you hear, both sides do it! That is like the recent story about how North Korea released a long list of U.S. civil rights abuses to show that ‘both sides’ do that, too. The tearing in that rationale is related to other scandals. Thomas Lifson describes The Democrats’ Dilemma on Benghazi.

“Though they may publicly deny that there is any scandal in the Obama administration’s response to the Benghazi attack on September 11, 2012, there must be doubts emerging, if only because we now know with certainty that a critical email was withheld in violation of a subpoena from the Issa Committee. Though most Democrats loathe Darrel Issa (and the entire Republican Party, for that matter), the expression “cover-up” is now in play, and the senior Congressional leadership of the party is old enough to remember the Watergate hearings, and the articles of impeachment that emerged from that process, authored in part by a young committee staffer named Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Article 1 cited as part of the justification for impeachment:

withholding relevant and material evidence or information from lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States;

The Bundy affair is another one that comes up and implicates Senator Reid as well. The corruption possibilities have a lot of meat for the conspiracists but isn’t getting much play. What is getting play dates back to the 1976 legislation that started the overturning of Western land homestead grants and rights. That was where the idea of using ‘protected habitat’ started as a means to grab land for politically correct development. 

A disjointed collection? Indeed. The common theme goes back to the Senate Majority Leader and his approach towards his political enemies and his accumulation of wealth while serving as an elected representative of the people. He isn’t alone in what he considers proper behavior.
