Mark Stevens to Heritage: “This is war.” — AND — A Darrell Issa investigation of left wing bullies?
“Now I want you to remember that no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country.”
—George C. Scott as General George S. Patton in the Academy Award-winning film Patton
“We’re playing with water guns, they’re playing with Scuds…. These people are terrorists…. There is a war. If we treat it as less than a war we will lose it.”
—MSCO CEO Mark Stevens to Heritage Foundation on fighting the Left
Mark Stevens and Frank VanderSloot.
Stevens is the Rush Limbaugh sponsor whose company and personal safety were threatened because he refused to buckle to the far-left haters in the Sandra Fluke affair. He is speaking out again. And he pulls no punches.
But before we get to Mark Stevens and the enthusiastically received, sensational talk he gave at the Heritage Foundation’s 35th Annual Resource Bank conference in Colorado, let’s talk about Frank VanderSloot.
Because what Mark Stevens is discussing — the rise of “domestic terrorism” associated with the Obama left — and the recent investigation of Romney contributor VanderSloot by a company called Fusion GPS are most assuredly part and parcel of the same issue.
Here is Mr. VanderSloot just last night on The O’Reilly Factor discussing what has been happening to him — correction — is happening to him.
Who paid Glenn Simpson’s Fusion GPS to investigate Romney contributor Frank VanderSloot?
Now there’s a question for congressional investigators.
While the dirt sought on VanderSloot by Fusion investigator Michael Wolf was public — as revealed in this superb reporting by the Wall Street Journal‘s Kim Strassel — (divorce records, a case involving a dispute with an ex-employee) Strassel has it exactly right when she terms this “trolling for dirt.”
Excepting the fact that divorce records are public, as was whatever paperwork was involved in the case with VanderSloot’s ex-employee, this “trolling for dirt” business — right down to the mystery of who paid the tab for Fusion to do this — reminds of one very disturbing historical precedent.
That would be the Nixon White House authorizing the break-in to the office of Daniel Ellsberg’s psychiatrist by the so-called “Plumbers” — the Nixon “White House Special Investigations Unit.”
