Gerald Walpin is Not Alone

Assigned Reading: Not Just Walpin! THREE I.G.’s Fired!
(FROM: American Thinker)

This is insane. Why isn’t this story everywhere? (Rhetorical question — I know why.)

According to Thomas Lifson over at the absolutely excellent American Thinker site, three inspectors general have been fired. All three were investigating various issues sensitive to the White House and Obama administration.

There’s Gerald Walpin, who was investigating the pilfering of AmeriCorps money by Kevin Johnson, former NBA All-Star, current mayor of Sacramento, and staunch Obama supporter. There’s Neil Barofsky who, charged with overseeing the federal stimulus spending, has been critical of the Treasury Department for apparently withholding information. And there’s Judith Gwynne, tasked with oversight of the International Trade Commission, whose independence has come into question this year.

Great job by the folks at American Thinker. This is something that absolutely must be talked about, and must be catalogued for use later. If this had been a Republican in office, the news would be everywhere, Keith Olbermann would be peeing himself with joy, and lefties from coast to coast would be calling for hearings, if not impeachment. But, because Obama is the liberal Messiah, the political termination of three inspectors general get nothing in terms of news coverage.

QUICK UPDATE: No less of a hat-tip to American Thinker, as they do a great job, but if you would like to read the story behind the reports by Lifson and by Ed Morrissey at HotAir, take a look at the piece which ran today in the Chicago Tribune.

Of course, this changes very little about my perception that the media has largely ignored this story. It would be front-page news in The New York Times if former president George W. Bush–or any Republican president, for that matter–had fired three inspectors general. I am very encouraged that the Tribune is doing the right thing here, though, and I hope it continues.

    Unbelievable. This story just goes deeper and deeper. Where's the media on this one?! Oh that's right. They're gearing up for Obama's infomercial in a week.

    Great job, Jeff! I am having to pinch myself to think of all he is getting away with!

    I feel so powerless to stop ANY of this! The state-controlled media is so complicit…not only b/c they worship Obama, but b/c they long ago agreed to not report on what's really going on in Washington.

    O is a puppet of the FED, and the international banker cabal. Calling for them to have even more control (I didn't know it was possible for them to have MORE!) is proof positive that he is their front man.


    This is as important, if not even more, than any other issue out there…and there are SO MANY!

    You are right I just checked on CNN and MSNBC and no mention of anything going on. This is another slap in the face to the public. "King" Obama is beginning to extend his empire. He is definitely a sick man and so stricken with narcissism. We need a superhero to lead us and to stand up to Obama. I have a feeling if enough people booed or shouted him down, the guy would crumble that is why he keeps everything under such tight control.

    When will Obama Hussein be forced to show his cards concerning the eligibiilty issue?
    It seems that all the legal actions are stopped intentionally by the members of the Judicial mafia!!!!

    When will the American people get the truth on this master deceiver Obama? When?
    Do we nee to start a revolution in the US to get the truth on this matter?

    Are blacks above the law?!! Is Obama G.od's incarnation?!! Is he the Messiah America has been waiting for?!!!

    It is obvious that the Judicial apparatus acts in collusion with Obama to prevent at all costs Obama from having to show the proofs?
    Even when he will show the proof (if he happens to be asked to do so), this full birth certificate will be nothing less than a 100% "valid forgery"!! The hospital and doctor listed will be true but he will have never been born in the USA in Hawaii in the first place!!

    This story has been covered extensively by Glenn Beck and Mr. Walpin has been on his show twice now – once right after it happened and again last night. Beck is covering all the issues and exposing everything from ACORN on down. I encourage everyone to watch his program or listen to him on the radio.

    This story is outrageous and the White House mouthpiece spoke out as if Mr. Walpin were senile. Beck gave him the test that he would be given to have this job and Mr. Walpin is far from senile. He's a very asture man who has served his country and government well.

    The government agency giving out this money is Americorp and I encourage everyone to do some research as to its connection/likeness to ACORN.

    Obama and his thugs are committed to being "moral low-lifes" as far as I can tell. It is almost as if they have no conscience. They are truly despicable. All this is very sad. They are an extremely dangerous and they will do much harm. They simply do not have a heart for America.

    I'm going to contact the Atlanta Journal & Constitution and ask to cover it.

    It does seem that the grandness of the Obama regime is springing leaks and falling apart.

    More and more are becoming aware of and thus outraged by what is going on in Washington.

    Thank goodness there are Republicans in Congress who will stand up in the face of those thugs and demand an accounting!

    Day after day I see more and more concerned citizens waking up and asking themselves what they can do to bring this juggernaut of corruption to a grinding halt and restore the Constitution to its rightful place as the supreme law of the land.

    I have signed and submitted my oath and I am waiting for the call for duty.

    Over 200 unique American Grand Jury members from 12 states have voted to indict Obama in the past 7 weeks. Thus far they have served over 120 presentments with different courts, sheriffs, judges and district attorneys around the Nation.

    You are not helpless. It is totally your choice. You have free will. You can do nothing or you can take a stand. There is nothing stopping you from participating. You don’t have to pay anything except the cost of a stamp. No travel is required. You have only yourself to blame.

    The sad part is that this all started because Obamas friend spent $800,000 of our money on washing his car. Instead of being outraged Obama tries to bail him out of trouble. this is only the beginning, recommended reading

    At 9:18 p.m., my conservative NC friend said that Shep Smith reported (he comes on at 7 p.m.) that there are now FIVE (5) IGs terminated!

    Who's left to guard the hen house?

    And, if Obama can do that illegally, WHAT CAN/WILL HE DO TO US?

    Time to write Congressmen again–or, not time to quit yet!

    This is just so old! And totally uncalled for!

    If my mother were still alive, you can bet your bottom dollar she would have been heard–one way or the other!

    It's a big deal when the Bush people fire fed. judges, but firing IG's who aren't even given the requisite 30 days notice doesn't deseve any mention in most of the msm? Welcome to Obamaville. Ignore laws, ignore the Constitution and get away with it. Who's going to stop him? The courts are just as corrupt. Good luck America. You need all you can get cause you don't have any leaders willing to take this garbage to the dump where it belongs.

    Jeff, I posted a comment saying this photo is scary. Is that a threat or coarse? It didn't make the cut.
