Kimberley Strassel had an amazing piece today in the Wall Street Journal, where she points very strong coverage on an agenda by the Obama White House to utilize virtually all methods available, legal, illegal intimidation and clear abuse of its government office and branches of government available to fight and intimidate those who support his political opposition.
The examples are clear, President Obama administration is abusing the office of President to fight support of his campaign rivals. More importantly there are striking examples of the White House abusing this power that are even more clear cut than mentioning names on a website. Companies who support Republicans on many issues such as Gibson Guitars have been attacked by Obama’s Justice Department. They literally forced Gibson to fire American workers to cut back on jobs since it was unable to do manufacturing using Indian wood.
The Justice Department under Obama attacked a company which leans Republican. They shut down US operations needing wood claiming that they were using illegally derived wood. Something not even the country where the wood originated, India, had claimed. Why did this happen? Political intimidation, old school hard ball Chicago style politics.
So, rather than going in the Wall Street Journal article. Here is a brief excerpt and a link to the full article. Hope you read it at its entirety.

From The Wall Street Journal:
Try this thought experiment: You decide to donate money to Mitt Romney. You want change in the Oval Office, so you engage in your democratic right to send a check.
Several days later, President Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, singles you out by name. His campaign brands you a Romney donor, shames you for “betting against America,” and accuses you of having a “less-than-reputable” record. The message from the man who controls the Justice Department (which can indict you), the SEC (which can fine you), and the IRS (which can audit you), is clear: You made a mistake donating that money.
