GOP-led Senate Fosters Culture of Corruption by Confirming Loretta Lynch as attorney general

For Immediate Release. Monday, April 27, 2015—After a delay of more than five months the radical liberal Loretta Lynch was confirmed by the GOP-controlled Senate by a 56-43 vote on Thursday, April 23, 2015. To confirm U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder's Holder Jr.'s successor, 10 Republicans broke ranks with their collegues and voted for Lynch. And disappointing is that Republican Presidential Candidate U.S. Senator of Texas Ted Cruz was the only senator not to vote. Voters always cherish a vote on principle but distain a senator that does not vote.      

“The American electorate gave Republicans a majority in the Senate in November because they were tired of President Barack Obama's radical liberal agenda and they wanted the GOP controlled Congress to serve as a check and balance to stop his expansive unconstitutional agenda, “ said President of the American Voice Institute Joel P. Rutkowski. He added, “Unfortunately, the GOP Senate fosters a culture of corruption by confirming Loretta Lynch as the next attorney general. She will only continue and support President Obama's attacks on the United States (U.S.) Constitution and lead the nation further into its post Constitutional Republic era.”  

For example, in her Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Lynch expressed support for everything Attorney General Eric Holder has done.  Unfortunately, through the prism of race, Lynch, like Holde,r views law enforcement.  Also, since they ostensibly disenfranchise voters Loretta Lynch opposes voter ID laws. However, a 2008 Supreme Court decision said that such laws did not place on the right to vote an unconstitutional burden.  Furthermore, Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act that required states to get pre-clearance” from the Justice Department before changing their voting laws, as a result of historic racism was vacated by a 2013 decision.  

It should be as extremely troubling to every American that Lynch will continue to pursue Eric Holder's unlawful liberal policies.  President Obama's lawless executive amnesty will be promoted by her.  And Loretta Lynch made the incredulous statement in her testimony before the Senate committee that all illegal aliens have the “right to work.” Tragically because of GOP senators, America must suffer from another Obama official that does not believe in the rule of law and will not hold her constitutional oath.   

The Senate was apparently insufficiently moved by HSBC whistleblower and former HSBC vice president and relationship manager John Cruz and the more than 1,000 pages of evidence and secret audio recording presented to the Senate Judiciary Committee.  In a possible cover-up involving banking giant HSBC the Senate turned a blind eye. In a massive money laundering scheme with Latin American drug cartels and Middle Eastern terrorists the bank was engaged.  The bank was allowed to enter by US Attorney Loretta Lynch into a “deferred prosecution” settlement in which the bank admitted to “willful criminal conduct,” and paid $1.9 billion in fines.  And she agreed not to pursue criminal investigations and prosecutions of HSBC directors and employees in exchange.    

During Hillary Clinton's years as secretary of state, a yet-to-be-released book documents the spectacular graft and anticipatory bribes that foreign governments and mega-multinationals gave the Clinton Foundation.  After investors paid off her husband former President Bill Clinton (D) and gave huge donations to the Clinton Foundation, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave her support to a financial transaction that handed partial control of America's strategically important uranium resources (Uranium One)  to Russia.  The New York Times reported that a secret review process was set off in Washington where officials raised concerns primarily about the mine's proximity to a military installation, but also about the potential for minerals at the site, including uranium, to come under Communist Chinese control when a company controlled by the Communist Chinese government sought a 51 percent stake in a tiny Nevada gold mining operation in 2009.  The deal was killed by officials.  

In the U.S. such is the power of the Committee on Foreign Investment.  Some of the most powerful members of the cabinet, including the attorney general, the secretaries of the Treasury, Defense, Homeland Security, Commerce and Energy, and the secretary of state comprise the committee.  And any deal that could result in foreign control of an American business or asset deemed important to national security they are charged with reviewing.   The New York Times reported that according to Marin Katusa, author of “The Colder War” How the Global Energy Trade Slipped From America's Grasp,” the United States gets one-fifth of its electrical power from nuclear plants, it produces only 20 percent of the uranium it needs, and most plants, have only 18 to 36 months of reserves. And American dependence on foreign uranium sources is primarily the national security issue at stake.    

Unfortunately, it appears guaranteed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D) and former President Bill Clinton (D) will never be prosecuted for their alleged crimes because of the GOP-led Senate confirmation of the radical liberal Loretta Lynch as attorney general.  

“The confirmation of Loretta Lynch as attorney general could have been stopped by the Republican majority but they chose not too.  Since taking control of Congress the Republicans have done nothing to stop President Obama's liberal radical lawless agenda and culture of corruption.  Instead they have embraced it and advanced.  Several Republican senators are up for reelection in 2016 and must be defeated in primary elections.  These senators are: Ayotte (New Hampshire), Kirk (Illinois), Portman (Ohio), and Johnson (Wisconsin)," said Dr. Joel P. Rutkowski.  

Furthermore, the media has overlooked one of the most disturbing fact that some of the most powerful members of President Obama's cabinet are involved with the Committee on Foreign Investment and supported the financial transaction that handed partial control of America's strategically important uranium resources to Russia.  It is time for the GOP-controlled Congress to do what the America people elected them to do and bring an end to the radical lawless agenda of President Obama.  It is inconceivable that President Obama was unaware of the circumstances that led to the Russian takeover of Uranium One.  What is note worthy is that at a nuclear summit in March 2012 President Barack Obama was caught on a hot mike assuring then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, “After my election I have more flexibility.”
