Armed police Followed ABC reporters through IRS building

Yeah, they didn’t get to do any investigative reporting:

As we traveled the public hallways of the building – watched over by security cameras – an armed uniformed police officer with the Federal Protective Service followed us. We were looking for a particular office—of someone who would not want to be seen talking to reporters–but chose to bypass it because of our official babysitter.

Asked why we were being escorted in a public building, the officer identified himself as Insp. Mike Finkelstein and said he was only trying to make sure that the newsmen were not a “nuisance.” He brushed aside further questions. The cop said a supervisor would call to explain.

One of the reporters wanted to know if the act of following the journalists was an effort intended to scare off any federal employee who might have considered speaking to the press. That’s sure what it looked like; and, even if that wasn’t the goal, it was the effect.

    Obama and his transparent administration. I hope that enough people step forward, even close to his inner circle—people who may become aware of the dangers to the US of this president—and expose him enough that he is impeached.

    The Obama administration has become a kind of mafia!!! Bengazi, IRS, Fast and Furious, and what else!!!
    Worse, in all these scandals, it is impossible to get the truth of what happened!! The Obama administration covers up to the maximum!!!

    When is the crook in Chief, Hussein Obama, the closet Muslim be held accountable for the scandals of his administration?

    Hussein Obama who has managed to bankrupted the USA by squandering more than $6 TRILLION of US deficit during his first four years at the Presidency and who plans to spend at least $4 TRILLION MORE of US deficit during his second four years at the Presidency, reaching the astronomical number of more than $20 TRILLION of US deficit!!! Such a crazy amount will not be repaid after several (probably many!!) generations of Americans pay their taxes!!

    Honestly, since Obama has been president, America does not even feel like America anymore. There is the feeling that I’ve had over the past week that something has been fundamentally lost—a loss of security and safety in America. I have the fear that the freedoms under attack by the Obama Administration will be lost forever. Our country is being controlled by Obama and his Chicago thugs. We have a president that has been influenced by his associations and friendships with domestic terrorists Bernadette Dorn and Bill Ayers. A president who won’t label terrorist acts terrorism —is that the Ayers effect? The media is responsible for putting Obama in office through their biased reporting and lies of omission, as well as their relentless attacks on Republicans, including vile attacks on McCain, whose loyalty and commitment to the US should never have been questioned. Wonder honestly how the media feels now that they are being targeted by the DOJ? Is it ok with them if they have not been specifically targeted themselves? There are three horrible scandals; I wonder what will happen next?
    I wonder how many Americans are aware of how serious this is? There were man on the street interviews done by one news agency, and several of those interviewed could not even name the vice president, they were clueless about our government and these issues. I guess I should not be surprised by that.

    Well, Obama did say he wanted to fundamentally change America……this is what he meant. I was pretty sure it wasn’t in a good way. Sometimes you hate to be right…
