A deposition given by a former EPA official, who was sentenced to 32 months for defrauding the government while posing as a CIA agent, is proof President Obama has an anti-capitalist agenda, says Daniel Kish, a senior vice president at the nonprofit Institute for Energy Research.
"[John Beale] was deposed
by a congressional committee and what he said was … his job was to look into ways to fundamentally transform the economy by using regulations out of the EPA," Kish told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.
"My jaw dropped and a lot of people's did reading this and the nonchalant way in which he simply said it as though this is the sort of discussion that happens at the EPA all the time."
In the deposition, released by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Beale revealed the ultimate goal of the EPA and the Obama administration is to "modify the DNA of the capitalist system."
Kish told Malzberg:
"You ask any coal-mining family out there across America who's seeing what's happening to that industry and you talk to anybody in the energy industry in general about the assaults that have been happening here at home.
"You conclude that they would have thought that this was happening anyway but this is not the way the founders set up our system."
Beale's lies began in 1994, according to his deposition, when he first told his wife he was secretly working for the CIA. The lies continued at work, and he said he was able to keep it going for so long because his wife and colleagues trusted him.
In the end, he ended up defrauding the government of nearly $1 million — $500,000 in bonuses and 2½ years of paid time off over the past 20 years. Beale also continued to collect a retention bonus for a decade after it was supposed to have expired in 2003.
Besides the prison time, Beale was ordered to repay $1.4 million in fines and restitution.
