Senators ‘Demand’ Loretta Lynch ‘Immediately Cease’ Trying to Punish Those Who Disagree


US Attorney General Lynch attends a news conference in Zurich

Ayn Rand said, “There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”

Our government is already there!

Justice Department attorneys general announced in March that they were looking into prosecution and punishment for the fossil fuel industry and individuals, including academics and researchers who deny, doubt, present opposing research to global warming.

Finally, five Republican Senators have sent a letter to Lynch explaining we don’t have thought police and can’t punish industries and people because they have different views.

“We write today to demand that the Department of Justice immediately cease its ongoing use of law enforcement resources to stifle private debate on one of the most controversial public issues of our time  — climate change,” the letter states. “As you well know, initiating criminal prosecution for a private entity’s opinions on climate change is a blatant violation of the First Amendment and an abuse of power that rises to the level of prosecutorial misconduct.”

The letter makes note of the fact that Democrat Attorneys General around the country have been issuing subpoenas to private companies, scientists and academic researchers demanding any and all documents referring to “climate change, greenhouse gases, carbon tax, or climate science.”

“These actions provide disturbing confirmation that government officials at all levels are threatening to wield the sword of law enforcement to silence debate on climate change,” the letter states.

The Senators gave the department 14 days to end all investigations and inquiries into the “deniers”.

The only congressmen who signed it are: Senators Sessions, Lee, Cruz, Vitter, Perdue – that’s it. Hopefully, others stand behind it.

The following link explains the latest from one of the victims of the thought police.

V. Lombardi says it well. Michael Price, too. Except for a handful of legislators — count them on one hand — the GOP has proven to be a cowardly, feckless bunch. They’ve actually helped Obama and his wrecking ball destroy America. McConnell and Ryan need to go. Vote them out. America will be so much freer, safer, and saner (more sane) with them gone.

It’s about time someone in the capital put a stop to this abuse of power

This is similar to the IRS punishing people of different views.
The leaders of the republican party are too cowardly to say anything.
