LAW!? I AM THE LAW!

Last Night Jack Nicholson revisited his role as Colonel Jessup

Sorry.

IRS Commissioner Koskinen tried to channel Colonel Jessup but failed to generate any of the character’s sympathetic aspects and focused only on the Smugness:

“You have already said, multiple times today, that there was no evidence that you found of any criminal wrongdoing,” Gowdy said. “I want you to tell me: What criminal statutes you have evaluated?”

“I have not looked at any,” the IRS commissioner admitted.

“Well then how can you possibly tell our fellow citizens that there is no criminal wrongdoing if you don’t even know what statutes to look at?” Gowdy followed-up.

“Because I’ve seen no evidence that anyone consciously –“

“Well how would you know what elements of the crime existed? You don’t even know what statutes are in play,” Gowdy said, visibly annoyed. “I’m going to ask you again: What statutes have you evaluated?”

“Uh,” the IRS commissioner stumbled, “I think you can rely on common sense–“

“Common sense? Instead of the criminal code, you want to rely on common sense? No, Mr. Koskinen, you can shake your head all you want to, commissioner. You have said today that there’s no evidence of criminal wrongdoing and I’m asking you what criminal statutes you have reviewed to reach that conclusion.”

“I reviewed no criminal statutes,” said the IRS commissioner.

You want to know what is wrong with our Government?

Commissioner Koskinen is what’s wrong with our Government.  All of the Bureaucrats that see the world as he does are what’s wrong with our Government.  An institution that is so accustomed to ‘being the law’ and see no reason to know the law is what’s wrong with our Government.

Elitist, Smug Liberal Progressives have taken over the Government from the top down.  It happened over time.  It is complete.

Now that there has been an unabridged War declared on the only opposing Ideology it is presenting itself for all to see.

The Koskinen’s, Lerner’s, et al. are coming out of the shadows into the sun.

In light of Jonathan Gruber’s video taped Honesty… I felt this was worth a repost, just as a reminder that they All think you’re Stupid and they’re above your Stupid laws.


You still Care about the IRS Targeting Political Enemies?

Well…

This is Cool.

A Real Time logging of events in an easy to follow time-line.

Enjoy… between intermittent fits of anger and sobs.


This is a Huge IRS story from Breitbart!

Some of you will dismiss this as ‘politics as usual’…
But it is ‘politics as usual’ we would never see if it were not for the internet.
We are in very New, very Interesting times.

Eric Holders Office Calls Darrell Issa’s office by Mistake…
And asked them to receive leaked documents, then Spin them in a favorable light for Democrats.
One Painful Problem.
Darrell Issa is a Republican in Charge of Investigating and Oversight.
In this Case the IRS Targeting Political Enemies.

I predict Mainstream Media will give this little if any attention because it’s ‘Their Guys’ doing it.  Could you imagine what the response would be if the Bush, or any supposedly non-Leftist, Administration did such a thing?  I can.

This is Big.

Big, Big, Big…

And it’s Al Gore’s fault for inventing this greatest miracle since the Guttenberg Press.

Let there be light!


What does Smidgen taste like?

Lobster?  Chicken?  Crow?  An Old Shoe?

I ask because it looks like we’re all going to get to experience a lot of it…  ton’s of it in fact.

When President Obama said there “is not even a Smidgen” of corruption in the IRS I think he was regurgitating a line Bill Clinton fed him before he went into the interview.

What he was really saying was there is A Ton of Smidgen. Lot’s and Lot’s of Smidgen.

So get your forks out because there will be a bunch of Smidgen to be eaten.

There is currently an US Congressman and now an US Senator covered in Smidgen. Mr. Cummings and Mr. Levin…

I suggest Elijah and Carl find Aprons and a bottle of Tabasco.  They might ask President Obama, he seems to be most familiar with Smidgen.

(Update: Offline I was informed Smidgen is best Grilled.  Mr. Issa should be enlightened to this suggestion.  It was also suggested serving Smidgen Sandwiches, but I commented that no one likes being forced to eat a Smidgen Sandwich… especially after a being Grilled.)

 

 


What if All the Criminals are Women?

Let’s say there is a specific Crime that was committed and all of the Criminals, save a select few, were Women.

Now let’s say that you put these Women in Jail for their Crimes.

Are You Committing a War on Women?

Well, that’s what we are all being set up for.

Lois Lerner, of IRS Targeting political Enemies of the President Fame, is about to be prosecuted for her Role in that Targeting.

Lois Lerner Could go to Jail.  First for Contempt… then for Committing Crimes only dreamt of by people like Nixon.

But here’s where it starts to look predictable:  Lois Lerner’s Deputy is involved as well and her name is Holly Paz… and She is, wait for it… a Woman!

And!  Another IRS Staffer involved in the dissemination of Private Taxpayer information, one Catherine M. Barre, is also… a Woman!

Then there’s the Criminal Communication of Taxpayer information with Elijah Cummins office (His being a woman has not been confirmed, but his is Black… so you’re at least a Racist.).

All of this would probably be considered crazy conspiracy theory material save,

Hillary’s involvement in Benghazi.  Combined with Her desire to be President.

And the out of nowhere Narrative being pushed by the Democrat Party regarding a War on Women.

A Narrative designed to get you to Ignore actual Crime such as Domestic Spying, Arming Drug Cartels, Leaving our Intelligence Service out in the Field to Die, Allowing North Korea to go Nuclear, Enabling Voter Fraud and ensuring Illegal Immigration continues unopposed… all while the Dollar is intentionally devalued and the Debt Sky Rockets to levels never dreamt of by all the Previous Administrations Combined.

So if all the Criminals are Women, Enforcing the Law is discrimination.

It’s a War on Women…

And you’re a Damned Genderist.  And Probably a Republican TEA Party Libertarian Individual Rights A-Hole.  Clearly.

 


It’s a Catastrophe!

This is all we Hear from the Republicans…

But our Answer is a Loud and Clear “So What!?”

As Leftist Progressives we don’t need Obama Care to work. We just need enough Time to remove all of Your Other terrible Options.

It’s our “Put Some Time on it, You’ll Forget” Strategy.

This is not a New Strategy, it has Been our Strategy from the Beginning.

It’s the same Strategy We Liberals use for everything because it works.

We Do it for You.

We Promised the most Transparent Administration in the History of Administrations?

Put some Time on it… you’ll Forget.

We Promised to Reduce the Debt?

A little Time always helps… you’ll Forget.

We closed the Open Air Monuments during a Government shut-down over delaying the Individual Mandate… something We Did Anyway… to Punish Veterans?

You just need time… you’ll forget.

We Up-Armed Mexican Drug Cartels which resulted in the Deaths of hundreds of innocent Mexicans and some our own Border Agents?

Rub some Time on that…  you’ll forget.

We Abandoned our Diplomat and his staff in Benghazi to Die at the hands of well-trained Islamic Terrorists in the name of “looking Nice on the World Stage”?

You just need a little Time… you’ll forget.

We Used the IRS to target our political opponents for fiscal destruction?

Time is all you need… you’ll forget.

We, the self-proclaimed Party of Privacy, have the NSA collecting every bit of electronic information from your credit card purchases to you e-mail and text messages then storing them forever?

We suggest Time…  you’ll forget.

We Promised Cheaper Health Insurance?  We Promised you could keep Your Doctor?  We Promised You could Keep Your Plan?

Obama Care is a complete failure?

Easy…

We Need More Time!

And during that time You can Help us demolish any institution that might offer a way back.  Together we’ll Destroy Big Insurance Companies, Big Hospitals and even Big Doctors in order to assure there is no return.  We will berate, demean and demonize those Idiotic Citizens that come forward and imply openly that Obama Care has failed them.  With your Help We will paint all Politicians who get in our way as Evil.  We will Force all Young People, except for You, to buy it just like We do to get Them, except for You, to vote for us.  We just need more Time…

And in Time, you’ll forget ALL of this.

And We Win.

And just to make sure… We’re all going to talk about Equal Pay, Amnesty, Gay Marriage and Minimum Wage.  Don’t Worry, we Realize All of these issues have Reasonable Answers, but they aren’t simple for you to Understand and would Never supply them Anyway.

And, according to our Focus Groups, You don’t really want to Think about all this stuff Anyway.

So We Win Again… and again… and again.

So Please be Afraid of Those Evil People Who Say Things You Don’t Want to Hear!

Are AG Holder and Rep. Gohmert (R-TX) Buddies?

Or is Eric Holder just a Smug, Arrogant, Elitist who holds nothing but Contempt for the Separation of Powers?

You Decide.

Transcript of Exchange:

(Background:  At issue was a request for documents in the DOJ’s case against the Holy Land Foundation, a designated terrorist group based in Texas, whose founders were convicted and sentenced for funneling money to Hamas. The men are now asking for a new trial, blaming their lawyers for their convictions. In February, the DOJ disputed their attorney’s claim, saying there was a “mountain of evidence” that proves the Islamic charity was controlled by Hamas.)

“I was fairly specific to make sure that I got the documents that the Department of Justice handed over to people convicted of supporting terrorism. They’re terrorists. We’ve given them the documents,” Gohmert said. Gohmert said the committee sent the Justice Department repeated requests for the documents that had been used to prosecute them but were only provided a link to “nearly 500 publicly available exhibits that were admitted into evidence” and instructed “to check the public access to court electronic records.” Meanwhile, the requested documents were “put on discs and sent to Illinois,” so they are easily available – “just not to members of Congress,” Gohmert said.

“Attorney General, I’ve read in the 5th Circuit opinion, about 9600 summaries of transcripts of conversations that the Justice Department had that were made available to attorneys for the terrorists,” Gohmert said. “I still do not understand why your department can provide documents to terrorists’ lawyers, and many of them to four out of eight of the terrorists, and not provide them to members of Congress.” “Sir, I’ve read you what your department promised, and it is inadequate, and I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said.

Holder: “You don’t want to go there, buddy. You don’t want to go there, okay?”

Gohmert: “I don’t want to go there?”

Holder: “No.” Gohmert: “About the contempt?”

Holder: “You should not assume that that is not a big deal to me. I think that it was inappropriate. I think it was unjust, but never think that that was not a big deal to me. Don’t ever think that.”

Gohmert: “Well I’m just looking for evidence, and normally we’re known by our fruits, and there have been no indications that it was a big deal, because your department has still not been forthcoming in producing the documents that were the subject of the contempt.”

Holder: “The documents that we were prepared to make available then, we’re prepared to make available now that would have obviated the whole need. This was all about the gun lobby and a desire to have a—

Gohmert: “Sir, we’ve been trying to get to the bottom of Fast and Furious where people died, where at least a couple hundred Mexicans died, and we can’t get the information to get to the bottom of that, so I don’t need lectures from you about contempt, because it is very difficult to deal with asking questions.”

Holder: “And I don’t need lectures from you either.”

Gohmert: “As a former judge, I’d never have asked questions of someone who’s been held in contempt. We waited ‘til the contempt was purged, and then we asked questions.”

(H/T Melanie Hunter at CNS News)

So either AG Holder and Congressman Louie Gohmert are “Buddies” or Eric Holder is an Arrogant A-Hole.  May be both.

Hmmm…

Considering We the People wish to see Lois Lerner of IRS Targeting Political Enemies Fame placed in Contempt… it’s worth wondering what power that charge actually has?

If you’re found guilty of Contempt of Congress such as Eric Holder has been, So What?

I’m pretty sure I would be put in Jail.

I guess if you’re associated with Government, you become Buddies.  You also Demonstrate for all of us out here Who still Give a Crap that you’re Above the Law.

And when You’re the one in charge of Enforcing the Law where does that leave us?
