Opinion| ICYMI 2/20] Well before Trump was ever elected to office, many of us who followed the daily goings on in Washington were dismayed at the war on whistleblowers that the Obama admin waged.
We were also just as disgusted with the media’s lack of desire to even cover the topic. As you well know, there are not only two sets of enforcement standards for radical leftists and proud Americans, there is also a a huge double standard when it comes to the media and it’s coverage of conservatives v liberals.
Breitbart reported: The Obama administration waged war on whistleblowers during its tenure, reportedly prosecuting at least eight leakers under the Espionage Act – more than under all former presidents combined.
Members of the Obama administration also reportedly retaliated against whistleblowers, namely those linked to the federal government’s gun-walking scandal known as Operation Fast and Furious.
Even theThe Washington Times reminded us:
‘Mr. Obama’s Department of Justice and FBI spied on The Associated Press, secretly wading through their reporters’ phone records, in an effort to chill potential federal whistleblowers. His administration targeted Fox News reporter James Rosen as a criminal co-conspirator under the Espionage Act for simply talking to one of his sources in the State Department and reporting on it.’
Now one of those whistle blowers is missing, and has been missing since Wednesday and we are seeing reports that he was found, shot to death outside of his car.
Mr. Haney had told Fox News’ Sean Hannity, back in 2016, that he was ordered by the Obama administration to scrub the record of Muslims in the US with terrorist ties.
Philip Haney had claimed that during the Obama years, political correctness had forced the killing of the investigation. People has since asked if the scrubbing had not occurred, if we would have been able to stop the San Bernardino Christmas terrorists.
Law Enforcement Today reported:
We’ve received reports that Philip Haney, a DHS whistleblower on the Obama administration, has been found dead.
We have not yet received independent confirmation from the Sheriff’s Department, but sources within law enforcement have verified that there’s a death investigation underway.
If you have seen a few episodes of Behind the Uniform or have ever watched Fox News, you probably recognize the name Philip Haney. He was the DHS whistleblower that dropped the hammer on the Obama administration regarding the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS.
He was also a friend to many at Law Enforcement Today. We have an exclusive interview with him at the bottom of the article that was conducted on Behind the Uniforms before his death.’

‘Friends of Haney told us that they spoke with Haney earlier this week and he’d “never been happier”. They’ve suggested there’s absolutely no way he would have taken his own life… and reinforce that he’s had many enemies since he blew the whistle on the Obama administration.
In 2018, Haney told Intercessors for America prayer activists that he had been working on a “special assignment” in Minnesota to stop Rep. Keith Ellison from being elected Minnesota’s Attorney General. As we approach the 2020 elections, friends of Haney’s told us he was planning on doubling down on efforts to “protect America from progressive leftists socialists”.’
Now it is possible that this was a robbery, or something that had nothing to do with Mr. Haney’s role in exposing the Obama administration or his new adventure working to expose Ellison. However, it is also possible that it had everything to do with it.
We will continue to monitor these reports and bring you more information when we receive it.
The Sheriff’s department says the gunshot wound was self inflicted …
