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.


“Whenever we can, We follow the Law.”

Hat Tip to Twitchy…  Don’t try that line at your next audit.

From our latest IRS Commissioner who if it wasn’t for his Profoundly Smug Demeanor he would have No Redeeming Qualities comes this:

“Whenever we can, we follow the law.” – John Koskinen (The Progressive Elitist IRS Commissioner)

Well OK then!

I’ll be sure to keep a copy of that quote for my next inquiry from the Internal Revenue Service.

As someone pointed out in the twitchy article, We would like to know when can’t you follow the law… and for what reason?

Why do we tolerate these people?

Why do we kowtow before them?

We do we allow them to keep us in fear?

It’s time to put a bunch of these people in jail.

Do you think they would hesitate to do it to you if you ‘lost’ all of your e-mail and hard drives?  Lied… repeatedly about who was involved in illegal activities?  You posture in the most pompous and arrogant manner possible when expected to explain yourself?

Of course not.

 

 


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!


Update: President Obama Meets with National Security Team

UPDATE: It has come to our attention that President Obama has reached out to the National Security Agency regarding the events in the Middle East. 

In an unusual move, the NSA has released a public statement upon receiving the request;

“Reviewing the President’s request for intelligence on the latest events in Syria and Iraq it is important to remind the White House that our primary focus is keeping the Government safe from the Citizens of the United States.  All of our energy and resources are dedicated to that mission.  We have no useful intelligence regarding ISIS or any group, or individual, overseas.  We recommend contacting CNN.” – NSA

 

This morning President Obama has called an emergency meeting of his National Security Team.

According to reports the President has had a Big Screen TV delivered to the White House for the meeting. The inside sources have confirmed the delivery of the TV and have told us it has been tuned to CNN for the purpose of informing the President about what is going on in the Middle East.

At this very moment the entire National Security Team is reported to be huddled around the TV so they can also learn what is going on in the Middle East.

Once the President, and his team, has been fully briefed by CNN it is anticipated he will make an announcement about what he might do…

One of the options offered by Susan Rice, the Obama National Security Advisor, is to order an IRS audit of ISIS, aka Al Qaeda, as there is probably some malfeasance associated with the name change and a possible connection to the TEA Party conservatives.

It is also rumored that the National Security Team is actively searching YouTube for any Videos which would have prompted the ISIS actions in the Middle East.  However, upon our attempt to verify this rumor we have been informed by Google that there has been a computer crash and those videos, if they existed, may be lost forever.

We will continue to watch closely as the United States is caught up to speed for the very first time regarding the events occurring in Syria and Iraq.

(Our sources have also indicated that the constant changing of names by Al Qaeda has been very confusing for the President. They have told us that the President had decided Al Qaeda was ‘on the run’ and someone should get this information to Al Qaeda as quickly as possible. The President has also indicated the inherent injustice of changing names when US policy has been based on the Al Qaeda Label.)


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.

 


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?


You Tell’em Elijah!

“Mr. Chairman, you cannot run a committee like this,” Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the committee, told Issa, the chairman, at a hearing about the IRS political targeting controversy. “You just cannot do this. This, we are better than that as a country. We’re better than that as a committee.” – Rep. Elijah Cummings (D – MD)

You Go Elijah!

I agree!

We should not run a committee like this!  We cannot allow Bureaucrats who Facilitated the Political Targeting of Citizens to Plead the Fifth after waiving their right to do so!  We ARE a Better Country than That!

We cannot allow the IRS to Withhold documents from a Congressional Investigation of the Weaponization of Government against it’s Citizens!

You are Right Representative Cummings, your Committee IS better than that!

Or are you?


Clawback

A word Liberals came up with… so let’s use it.

Lois Lerner decided to “retire” after being on paid leave since May.

For those of you who are catching up… Lois Lerner was the person responsible for using the Internal Revenue Service to punish those with “inappropriate” political views.

I want the money back. Since it is also yours… you should want it back too.

And, as far as Ms. Lerner’s ability to “retire”? Unless she is “retiring” to take tennis lessons at a Federal Minimum Security Facility, I’m not interested.


Uh-Oh…

Could it be that the CIA was involved in investigating journalists who said mean things about the current Administration?

The official response of “outrageous and baseless” leads me to believe… yes.

But why would I believe such a thing?

On what would I Base my assertion on?

Because we know it would be Outrageous if:

The IRS used its authority to intimidate groups the Administration disagrees with.

The DEA was using information gleaned from Domestic Spying on Innocent American’s.

The NSA was conducting the Domestic Spying program collecting information on Innocent Americans to be kept forever.

The CIA was selling Missiles to the Syrians and running them through Benghazi only to lose track of them.

The DOJ investigated Journalists.

The BATFE was up-arming Mexican Drug Cartels who then killed hundreds of innocent Mexican’s and American Law Enforcement Officers.

The Executive Branch was illegally writing Law and then furthering the illegality by providing immunity from those Laws to Unions and Government Employees.

The Federal Reserve was printing money faster than history has ever witnessed and then using it to buy Bonds.

The Very Senator and Congressman who caused the Real Estate Collapse escaped Imprisonment and, astonishingly, wrote legislation to “solve” the problem they created.

The Defense Department was being run by a Civilian Presidential Advisor whose decisions have thus far lead to the death of an Ambassador.

The TSA started showing up at Sporting Events to grope spectators when taking a break from Stealing Stuff out of your suitcase.

The DHS was advertising how to gain access to the United States without being a Citizen then allowing those who came to roam freely.

The Local Police were being Militarized with Federal Assistance.

The Democrat Party suddenly found Sexual Harassment to be offensive.

The list goes on, but my fingers are tired…

I Agree, it would be Outrageous.

However, Baseless?

We’ll see.

There’s guaranteed to be more yet to come, all brought to you by a group of people who find a 5% reduction in the Growth of Spending “Draconian”, Socialized Medicine “A Right”, the Constitution “Limiting” and the Second Amendment “Outdated”.

It’s becoming difficult to find anything NOT to believe anymore.

It’s time for bourbon surrounded by glass.


Hubris

(A re-post from 052813 in light of a renewed effort by the current Administration to accuse us of creating “PHONY SCANDALS”.)

 

Like a small flash it hit me after reading this quote from a DNC fundraising email:

“They’ve (Republicans) been caught red-handed making up so-called ‘scandals’ out of thin air to stir up false rumors of vast ‘cover-ups’ happening in the White House,”  Full story here.

First, let’s address the substance of this statement by listing what must be “made up out of thin air”…

This is what really happened, AKA the Truth, according to the DNC:

A U.S. Diplomat and three security personnel, two of whom did not fly to the rescue by stealing an airplane, were not killed on Sept. 11, 2012 by Al Qaeda militants.

The State Department, for some inexplicable reason, did not blame the event on a you tube video that 19 people viewed prior to the non-existent attack by random folks living in Benghazi.

The Administration did not register the 11 other Benghazi victims under pseudonym’s when they were admitted to various hospitals for the injuries they did not receive during the non-attack.

The Internal Revenue Service did not admit targeting Conservative groups, who are perceived by the current Administration as opposition, for additional scrutiny.

One of those running things at the IRS did not plead the fifth in order to not incriminate herself.

The Department of Justice did not secure the phone records for 100 Associated Press reporters, which did not include ancillary business and personal phone numbers.

The Department of Justice did not secure months of e-mail, which included addresses for his contacts, from a FOX News reporter without his knowledge or agreement.

These ridiculous non-facts are just more of the same from the Republican Party…. stop reading here and send the Democrat National Committee your money now.

Or, keep reading a little longer.

The small flash I mentioned earlier was a word…  Hubris.

Hubris /ˈhjuːbrɪs/, also hybris, from ancient Greek ὕβρις, means extreme pride or arrogance. Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one’s own competence or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power.  Full definition here.

Taking a short trip down memory lane, I recall the second year of President Obama’s first term.  At the beginning of that year he was being roundly criticized for appearing on television with unfettered frequency never before matched by any sitting president.  By the end of that year his party had lost the control of the House to the Republicans.  This happened to the dismay of those who predicted victory based on the turnout from his huge 6-point win 24-months prior.

I remember his demeanor being one of shock… for several months he seemed sullen and in a state of disbelief given such results.  I’m not sure he’s been quite the same since.

But, Barack Obama genuinely believed his victory over one of the oldest, “whitest”, most “war-mongering”, least Republican candidates in 2008 was not because he was a young, articulate, African-American… he believed it was because he had a mandate for his Socialist Ideas.  He actually thought the voters were listening to the meaning of his words… not just enjoying the beat, and hopped up on the desire to feel like their lives mean something… historic.

If you take a moment and slip on his size 12’s, you could understand this.  It’s undeniable, He spelled out his plan in “Blue Print for America”, his books, his speeches and with the people he surrounded himself with.  He was not keeping his Socialist values a secret… just ask Joe the Plumber.  Frankly, just ask any of us who were screaming at the top of our lungs exactly because we DID read his Blue Print, speeches and books.

President Barack Obama believed, and still believes, that the masses agree with him.  To him, The Ends of Social Justice… being Equality of Outcome with Government at the Center of every Solution… is justified by the Means of having the U.S. kneel before the world while using Government Force to destroy any Opposition to the Socialist Utopia.

I suggest the reason we are seeing all of these “non-existent” scandals come to light is a brilliant by-product of our founding Fathers Constitutional design.  This type of malfeasance will always surface in a transitional government.  When individuals within ones own party are interested in securing power for themselves, and your time is up… as mandated by law, anything you’ve been doing is up for review.  When I say anything, I mean trampling on the First, Second and Fourth Amendments.  It has to scream for Pepto-Bismol when the Benghazi Whistleblowers are all Democrats… who then are testifying that we (the U.S.) could have sent assistance which might have resulted in saving the lives… of a Democrat Ambassador and his Democrat security personnel.

It also has to cause his ulcer to bleed when his fellow Democrats join the chorus of those demanding investigations of the IRS for political targeting.

Finally, he and his Administration must be suffering from Elitist Arrogance when they start using the Countries Security Services to investigate the Press for doing their job… well, at least when the Press are doing the part of their job which the Administration finds disagreeable.  The Press… the one ally the Leftists count on.  The enablers of government vice.  (The press giving any oxygen to this is unbelievable.  Talk about biting the hand that feeds you…)

I will state again, nothing is going to cause this President to be Impeached.  It will not happen.  And he knows it.

I don’t care if Congress finds out this Administration was selling missiles to Syrian Rebels associated with Al Qaeda.  I don’t care if they find out the IRS was coordinating their efforts to oppress Conservative Opposition with the FBI, DHS and OSHA.  I don’t care if they find out transcripts exist of the AP reporters personal calls to their spouses, girlfriends, boyfriends, etc. which are being passed around DOJ for laughs.  And, I don’t care if we discover that help was truly available to be sent to Benghazi but was told to stand down because it might appear to be too “American”, or as the Leftists put it too “Militaristic”, which we also find out was the same reason they were there without the appropriate security in the first place.  I don’t even care if they find out the President is sleeping with Valerie Jarret and Susan Rice, at the same time, then lied about it under oath in order to escape a sexual harassment lawsuit based on law he directly championed.

Only an extremely over blown sense of competency, arrogance and undeserved righteousness could fuel such behavior.

However, none of this matters.  We have 3 1/2 more years of this guy and his Fellow Travelers.  That’s just the way it is.

But that doesn’t mean we have to sit by and watch them destroy what little of the Constitution and Bill of Rights which remain intact.

Get ready for the mid-terms.  (Update 112014… we won.  but it might not be enough if we still have no spine.)

It’s possible they believe there are no scandals… Hubris would explain that too.

If you make sh*t up, then write it down… and read it, you might just begin to believe it.  Such is the way of the Leftist.
