The Obama Administration’s Operation “Choke Point,” Part 2

By John Velisek, USN (Ret), staff writer

On March 24th, Coach is Right published—“The Obama Administration’s Operation ‘Choke Point’ now in the open”. That piece is currently available on the CiR site under Recent Posts.

On Monday, Richard Manning, Director of Communications for Americans for Limited Government, said this of the Obama Administration: “Their intent is to create a government sanctioned means of driving private industry out of the business of providing payday loans.” Peter Barden, of the Online Lenders Association agrees that what the Obama Administration is doing is outside its legal authority.

Manning was referring to a particular, ongoing use of Operation Choke Point, a federal law enforcement program created from the merging of the DOJ and the FDIC. The stated purpose of the Operation is the shutting down of corrupt businesses.

But in the hands of the Obama Administration, Choke Point has been used to destroy any business which Obama and Co consider morally or politically disagreeable. A short list of these industries include firearms, ammunition, payday loans, coin dealers and pharmaceutical sales.

Choke Point inevitably begins with Department of Justice operatives intimidating banks into ending all ties with such businesses. If a gun store owner should then find no way to process payments, borrow money or even maintain a checking account, how is he to conduct business? Of course, it is the Obama Administration’s belief that political enemies should not be permitted to do business. I don’t know who gave them that right, but it was certainly not the American people.

The Choke Point process was initially implemented to stop financial fraud, not as a massive government clampdown on legal businesses. But in the hands of corrupt politicians, any means of utilizing absolute authority will eventually lead to the criminal abuse of that authority. After all, Choke Point was never meant to target the practice of free and legal enterprise or the activities of law abiding businessmen.

Yet how many DOJ officials told banks and examiners “I don’t like this business, they should not have payment processing available to them in our financial system. I’m certain you will agree, or face an immediate, unplanned audit of your bank.” These are the totalitarian practices which should drive honest politicians to defund the Choke Point program.

The United States is not a Marxist dictatorship in spite of the best efforts of Barack Obama and the corrupt thugs who carry out his orders. Federal threats should never be part of our business climate.

Mark Pearce of the FDIC  was scheduled to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, but his name was withdrawn due to lack of support. Before Pearce was in charge of Operation Choke Point, he worked for the Bureau of Consumer Protection and spent more than ten years with the Center for Responsible Lending (CRL) in Durham North Carolina. The CRL is a front for the Self-Help Foundation, a credit union with a conflict of interest in the payday loan industry. The CRL was instrumental in the massive collapse of the sub-prime loan market in 2008.

If the government can coerce banks to do its bidding, where will the deliberate, government ordered destruction of political and economic enemies stop? Will the Obama Regime crack down on Republican and tea party groups again, on radio stations that carry programs they do not like, or even on those on the internet who may question their methods?

If the government is allowed to continue this program of baseless accusations of fraud, it will continue to move forward, rolling over any business which does not conform to federal political demands. That is not the way capitalism works and is another short step to socialist tyranny.

Here’s what Bowe Bergdahl was taught as he converted to Islam during his “absence”

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

During his indoctrination into the “Religion of Peace” Bowe Bergdahl, who has now been charged with desertion, was taught about the Islamic way of life. Here is what Islam says about various topics.

TORTURE
Qur’an 5-33 says, “The punishment for those who wage war against Allah and His Prophet and make mischief in the land, is to murder them, crucify them, or cut off a hand and foot on opposite sides…their doom is dreadful. They will not escape the fire, suffering constantly.”

TERRORISM
Qur’an:8:12
“Your Lord inspired the angels with the message: ‘I will terrorize the unbelievers. Therefore smite them on their necks and every joint and incapacitate them. Strike off their heads and cut off each of their fingers and toes.” “So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.”

JIHAD
Qur’an:47:4
“So, when you clash with the unbelieving Infidels in battle, smite their necks until you overpower them, killing and wounding many of them. At length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, bind them firmly, making them captives. Thus are you commanded by Allah to continue carrying out Jihad against the unbelieving infidels until they submit to Islam.”

MURDER
Tabari IX:69
“Killing disbelievers is a small matter to us.”

JEWS
Qur’an 2:61
“Humiliation and wretchedness were stamped on the Jews and they were visited with Allah’s wrath.”
Ishaq:240
“The Jews are a nation of liars…. The Jews are a treacherous, lying, and evil people.”

CHRISTIANS
Qur’an 9:29
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah or the Last Day, who do not forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, or acknowledge the Religion of Truth (Islam), (even if they are) People of the Book (Christians and Jews), until they pay the Jizyah tribute tax in submission. Pay the tax in acknowledgment of our superiority and their state of subjection.”

TOLERANCE
Qur’an 4:168
“Those who reject [Islamic] Faith, Allah will not forgive them nor guide them to any path except the way to Hell, to dwell therein forever. And this to Allah is easy.”

WOMEN
Tabari IX:113
“Allah permits you to shut them [women] in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves.

Once again Comrade de Blasio reminds us of why Democrats must never be allowed to rule us

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

In the bad old days of New York City, the mob would decide the price of erecting a building regardless of who was planning to do it. Years after the construction of One Police Plaza, the City’s Police Headquarters, when the ceiling of the main floor started to fall down an investigation found that the mob had sold the city substandard concrete. They didn’t care who they ripped off.

Hard work led by former Mayor Rudy Giuliani broke the grip of the mob on New York’s construction industry and for years afterward construction boomed because of the reduced costs of operation.

Today the construction shakedown racket is not only back, the scam is being run by New York’s current Mayor Bill de Blasio. Last month de Blasio demanded a $50 million bribe from the Collegiate School, a private institution where the rich send their children for an actual education. It seems that Collegiate wants to build a new school and de Blasio thinks they should pay him $50 million for permission to do so.

The Comrade wants to use the money to buy “affordable housing” for Barack Obama’s imported Democrat illegal aliens.

If this wasn’t bad enough, the school has been informed that the $50 million should be considered a down payment and de Blasio could decide they had to pay more!

Collegiate has been educating New York’s children since before it was New York. It opened in 1628 under the sponsorship of the Dutch Reformed Church which makes it the oldest continually run school in America. It has an endowment of just $77 million. If the school put the money in a brown paper bag and paid off de Blasio it would go bankrupt overnight.  If such a percentage shakedown was pressed against Columbia University it would cost the school over $6 billion!  

The Democrat National Committee must be sighing in relief that they passed on having their 2016 convention in New York where de Blasio could show the country why Democrats should never be allowed to rule us again.

The end of New York’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is the beginning of “Irish Day”

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

In 1762 Irish Catholic soldiers, who were serving in the British Army stationed in New York City, organized the first St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the City.

They wanted to celebrate the life of St. Patrick and show their gratitude for his having brought the  Catholic Faith to Ireland. From its very beginning, the parade was a religious celebration that included attendance at mass receiving Holy Communion and prayerful contemplation of the gift St. Patrick had given the Irish.

Over the centuries since 1762 the parade has become a major event in the lives of many people. Those who are not Irish Catholics have always been welcome  to join the parade or watch  it unfold, but they have always been asked to respect the religious purpose of the parade.

The Irish are a generous race of people. We will share what we have down to the last morsel. Nevertheless, what we do not own we cannot share. We Irish do not own the right to degrade a religious observance to satisfy anyone’s idea of how the St. Patrick’s Day Parade must be conducted. The parade is either a religious celebration of the contributions of a major Catholic saint; or it is nothing more than an “Irish Day” celebration. We  adherent Catholics must be the ones to decide the nature of our own parade.

This year, against the will of adherent Catholics, we have seen the end of the New York St. Patrick’s Day Parade as a religious observance. The Parade Committee has seen fit to do this by allowing a group of Gays to march  under their own banner. Those who do not understand why this signals the end of the parade as it was intended to be, need to consider that Gay people by definition promote active homosexuality which is therefore the promotion of a mortal sin. Thus what was a celebration of St. Patrick and the Catholic doctrines he taught is now a celebration of sin.

As Parade Grand Marshal, Timothy Cardinal Dolan the Arch Bishop of New York has assisted in the promotion of sin as a substitute for a celebration of our Catholic doctrines.

Based on the shameful actions of those who have given away something they don’t own and degraded a religious celebration, the natural evolution of what has happened to the parade should be to change its name to the “Irish Day Parade” or better yet “Irish Pride Day Parade.” It should be scheduled on the second Monday of each March. That way there would be no pretense about what the day is really about and anyone who still has a job can get a new paid three day weekend to ski or take advantage of the “Toyotathon HUGE Irish Day Sale.”

My dad never worked a St. Patrick’s Day in his life; not even in the Depression when he didn’t get paid and risked losing his job. He would be weeping to see what has been done to the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Since he’s not here anymore I’ll be weeping for him.     

Feeding the impeachment alligator with Hillary Clinton

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

Those who have been paying attention understand Hillary Clinton’s nomination for president is no longer inevitable. Like Lucy and Ethel at the candy factory she has been called upon to do too much with too little to convince Democrats she can win 2016.   The lies have piled up and are spilling over the end of the conveyor belt. In a nutshell: It aint happening.

If this were the totality of Hillary Clinton’s problems she could actually become the doting grandmother she tells us she wants to be and ride off into the sunset with her pockets full of foreign money.  Fortunately for us that’s not happening either. Hillary will be held accountable for her years of violating both criminal statute and the laws of decency.

It is an established fact that John Boehner has already capitulated  on the matter of impeaching Barack Obama for his many high crimes and misdemeanors. For many people that is the end of the issue; yet in politics sometimes things become true because enough people believe they are true.  There is a growing number of Republican House members who want to impeach Barack Obama.  If enough of them believe it is time to impeach Obama it could happen; but it won’t happen for a very good reason.

At some point when the calls for impeachment become unbearable for Boehner he will have to make a deal with Obama to end the crisis. That deal is staring us in the face: It is Hillary Clinton’s indictment.

In such a deal the various crimes committed by Hillary and Bill Clinton – Benghazi – the State Department felonies – the acceptance of foreign money, will be rolled into one big informal under the table illegal plea bargain.

Hillary’s indictment will be used to feed the impeachment alligator that Obama and Boehner fear will devour them both.

When she is presented with her alternatives, Hillary will cop a plea to the State Department felonies. Of course it will be accompanied by an illegal and undisclosed promise that that will be the end of her troubles and that Bill and Chelsea will be kept out of her problems. Hillary will take the deal.

Boehner will pour her blood in the dust to try to satisfy the demands for an Obama impeachment. Obama will order AG Loretta Lynch (don’t doubt it) to figure out how it can be done and the Republican Establishment and Obama can go back to sabotaging Scott Walker’s candidacy.
