House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa Solicits Denunciations

"Public corruption poses a fundamental threat to our national security and way of life. It impacts everything from how well our borders are secured and our neighborhoods protected…to verdicts handed down in courts…to the quality of our roads, schools, and other government services. And it takes a significant toll on our pocketbooks, wasting billions in tax dollars every year.

The FBI is singularly situated to combat this corruption, with the skills and capabilities to run complex undercover operations and surveillance."---the FBI, Public Corruption

The Hill (1-11-11) reports that House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) has a “whistleblower” site that will accept tips on government fraud and waste.

I suspect that this is just the latest way for the Republicans to incite people to denounce our greatest climate scientists for fraud. The famous climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann wrote about Congressman Issa's tactics in a Washington Post op-ed titled "Get the anti-science bent out of politics" (10-8-10).

If people think they see fraud and abuse in the government, they should contact federal law enforcement authorities like the FBI, which investigates public corruption, not the crooks and liars in Congress who will just exploit fabricated "whistleblower" scandals to persecute our greatest climate scientists.

If Americans want to save money, they shouldn't pay Republicans any salary. Republican denialists get plenty of money from the fossil fuel industry. These Republicans work with political operatives who harrass scientists and write lies about them.

Instead of allowing Republican politicians and their operatives endlessly denounce our climate scientists for fraud, the Republicans should be denounced for lying to our people and for conspiracy to commit crimes against humanity. Their propaganda, lies, and schemes are going to destroy the lives of people all over the world.
