Tag: Obama WH’s IRS Scandal

Shades of Lois Lerner and the IRS Scandal coverup

I guess that fearing the fact that the Hillary Clinton e-mail security scandal was getting traction, despite a massive campaign by the DNC controlled media to conceal the criminal activity that caused a massive breach of security, Obama took to the airwaves this past weekend to defend Clinton. I can’t say I am surprised. Hillary probably has evidence that will drag Obama down with her if she gets indicted, as she should be, and then convicted an locked up, so Obama is now covering his ass. From the article;

The latest example came this weekend, when Obama again insisted that Clinton hadn’t put the country at risk by using a private email server during her time at the State Department.

“I continue to believe that she has not jeopardized America’s national security,” Obama said during a Fox News interview, going on to praise her job as secretary of state.

Even in those remarks Obama noted he needed to be “careful” in what he said, since his administration continues an investigation into Clinton’s email arrangements. He stopped short of declaring that Clinton hadn’t broken any laws, a conclusion that his Justice Department has yet to make.

Why does this all conjure up memories of the Lois Lerner, IRS Scandal insider job? It is as if these democrats all think and act as if they are above the law, because they know that they will never be held accountable or something. This country is run by a crime syndicate that seems compelled to hand off the baton to another crime syndicate. How the mighty have fallen. Love that fundamental change Obama promised us all yet?

If this had happened with a republican president that had an enemies list…

As usual a complicit media just lets the criminals running our government tell blatant lies and show no curiosity or desire to get to the truth. At this point it is a given that the IRS was ordered to target conservatives by the WH – and only fucking liars will pretend otherwise – but the criminals have been beyond efficient at hiding the level of criminal activity the Obama administration has gotten away with because of media treatment of this abuse of power:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Investigators are blaming mistakes by IRS employees — not a criminal conspiracy — for the loss of thousands of emails related to the tax agency’s tea party scandal.

IRS workers erased 422 computer backup tapes that “most likely” contained as many as 24,000 emails to and from former IRS official Lois Lerner, who has emerged as a central figure in congressional investigations, according to IRS’s inspector general.

The workers erased the tapes a month after IRS officials discovered that an untold number of Lerner’s emails were lost. The IG says the workers were unaware of a year-old directive not to destroy email backup tapes.

J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration, is scheduled to testify Thursday before the House Oversight Committee about his investigation into the emails. The Associated Press obtained a copy of his prepared testimony.

George says his investigation “did not uncover evidence that the erasure was done in furtherance of an effort to destroy evidence or conceal information from Congress and/or law enforcement.”

No, they are not just reporting news and not speculating here. They are covering for these crooks. We all know that the level of incompetence of the politically motivated bureaucratic monster that has been dragging this country into the abyss for a few decades now has reached absolutely new levels of low during this criminal administration, but not even I – someone that expects nothing but mendacity and stupidity from these people – can believe this level of stupid and ineptness is responsible for the bold faced claims nobody would otherwise accept. As the title of post asks: do you think that anyone, especially in the media, would have accepted this ridiculous answer to what was obviously another attempt at a coverup?

Why no questions and answers about who conducted the investigation and what evidence they used to present this ludicrous argument? And how likely would one be to accept this conclusion when you find out it was neither an independent or honest investigation, but some other insiders beholden to the crooks in charge that couldn’t find anything. Shit, I bet if the evidence was dropped in their lap they would manage to misplace it or lose it. Because that’s how they have been doing things.

Maybe we should ask the Chinese what their hack produced about the various Obama administration criminal activities. Then again, with Obama and the people following him being this corrupt, destructive, and profitable to China, they might just feel compelled to lie to keep him in charge for as long as it takes them to take over the world.

Still, the revelation that computer tapes were erased after officials knew about the lost emails is likely to fuel conspiracy theories among conservatives who say the IRS has obstructed investigations into the scandal.

Nixon was unavailable for comment, and George Bush was caught laughing because so many of the people that called him stupid are now bending over and grabbing their ankles trying to provide cover for the stupid criminals now in charge. Can you imagine the media making this sort of excuse for a republican president if the IRS, after attacking his political enemies and being caught & investigated, decided to erase evidence? I normally would go into my rant about how I told you Obama would make mediocre Boosh look like a fucking awesome president, and how stupid and destructive leftists and what they believe and do are, but at this point, after all this damage and destruction, there is not even joy in that.

Abolish the IRS – PUH-LEASE!

There is no more feared an organization in this country, nay the world, than the IRS. I have had to deal with them and was all but told that you were guilty until you could prove beyond the shadow of a doubt otherwise. I won, but I paid an arm and a leg to get there, and never got the money back. Stories of people browbeaten by IRS tyrants abound. No mistake or omission is permitted when you are in their gun sights. So you can understand how it galls me to find out that an organization with this kind of tyrannical overreach now claims that they are bereft by problems that prevent them from proving their innocence.

The IRS must go already. It’s a political weapon of the left and the political class, and nothing else. Americans are getting fucked over by these crooks and criminals. Abolish it and make the people working for the IRS live off government assistance. I doubt they can hold a real job anywhere outside government, anyway. And don’t forget to throw the Obama administration in jail. If I am guilty till I prove to the IRS that they are fucking idiots, then the same should apply to Black Jesus and his disciples. Implement a flat tax. No more loopholes. It will fix a lot of the political graft machine as well. And that’s why it won’t happen. The crooks are firmly in charge of things.

Could the LSM be seeing the light?

I was surprised to see that WaPo, which so far has done an awesome job of providing cover to the Obama administration when it comes to the plethora of scandals its involved in, was finally admitting that the whole IRS is no scandal meme from the admin now seems to bely a campaign of lies:

Anyone paying attention to the Internal Revenue Service scandal has been waiting for the next smidgen to drop. Well, two more hit pretty hard this week. At the president’s next encounter with the media, I will scream collusion if no one asks him for his exact definition of a “smidgen,” and if he thinks he has seen a smidgen of corruption yet. At this point, only the most gullible or culpable can continue to claim there is no compelling evidence in this case. Given the delays, lies and stonewalling, there is no viable argument against a special prosecutor.

In a stunning revelation this week, it was disclosed that former IRS official Lois Lerner told colleagues, “we need to be cautious about what we say in emails” and then proceeded to ask the IRS IT department, in an e-mail, “if [instant messaging] conversations were also searchable.” When she was told they were not, she e-mailed back, “Perfect.” This is a smoking gun e-mail in that it makes plain she had a cover-up in mind. There is no other plausible explanation.

Who knows how many of her colleagues and allies are breathing a sigh of relief upon learning that their e-mails to Lerner were destroyed and their instant messages not recorded? I think Lerner must have a sizable silent cheering section in Washington; people who are rooting for her to hang tough in pleading the Fifth and hoping that she does not go wobbly on them. I’ll bet her government retirement check is one check that never gets lost in the mail or delayed.

It gets even better. In another disclosure, Lerner’s attorney said that previous emphatic statements he had made declaring that Lerner did not print hard copies of her e-mails were not lies, just a “misunderstanding.” In this case, it is obvious what happened. When Team Lerner discovered that not keeping hard copies of some e-mails – which are considered government records – would in itself violate the law, it changed its story. It’s as simple as that.

The coordination among the Democrats and Lerner is remarkably brazen, even by today’s standards. While she lies low taking the Fifth, her mouthpieces in the Democratic caucus recite talking points that only she could approve. For example, during House oversight hearings on the scandal, Democrats seem to recite with great precision what Lerner did or did not do, what she knew and when she knew it. So while she hides the truth, protects her gang and stays clear of a perjury charge or worse, elected members of the Democratic party declare her innocence and tell her self-serving story.

Anyway, as long as Lerner stays cool and the Obama Department of Justice has her back, the administration obviously thinks it can run out the clock on this scandal. But these revelations are definitely meaningful smidgens. At what point does a flock of smidgens become irrefutable evidence that deserves an independent examination?

That bolded section is mine, because that’s exactly what the Obama administration is up to right now. The plan is to stall until the next presidential election, at which point they plan to steal the election for the democrat candidate which will then stall for as long as they can keep stealing the elections or simply decide to do away with the whole show that they have any respect for the constitution or the rule of law.

Nixon called and wants his presidency back, since he was forced to resign for wanting to do all the illegal shit that Obama and his crew have actually really done over the past 6 years. At this point this isn’t even funny to say anymore because it is so fucking true. We needs a special prosecutor, and these crooks all need to go to jail. The left is nothing but a crime syndicate.

Watergate had nothing on this..

I am now convinced Nixon’s crime was to be a republican. We are now getting told by the Obama administration’s IRS cronies that we can’t get Lerner’s emails, because, not only did the PC she used crash and lose her local copy, but they then formatted that hard drive and gave it to somebody else.

Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s crashed hard drive has been recycled, making it likely the lost emails of the lightening rod in the tea party targeting controversy will never be found, according to multiple sources.

“We’ve been informed that the hard drive has been thrown away,” Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the top Republican on the Finance Committee, said in a brief hallway interview. Two additional sources told POLITICO the same late Wednesday, citing IRS officials.

It may just be standard government procedure, but the revelation is significant because some lawmakers and observers thought there was a way that tech experts could revive Lerner’s emails after they were washed away in a computer crash in the summer of 2011. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), for example, subpoenaed her damaged hard drive earlier this week, when he asked for “all hard drives, external drives, thumb drives and computers” and “all electronic communication devices the IRS issued to Lois G. Lerner.”

“IT experts have weighed in and said yes — we can get those” emails, said Rep. Charles Boustany (R-La.) earlier Wednesday.

The latest news suggests such professionals may never get the chance to try again — and the IRS has even said its criminal investigators who specialize in rebuilding hard drives to recover hidden information from criminals were unable to restore the data back in 2011. But this is only likely to further enrage Republicans, who are fuming over the matter and suspect Washington officials drove the selective scrutiny.

Sure, I buy into the nonsense that an organization awash with tax payer money to waste that spends hundreds of thousands on fluff bullshit (remember those training videos?) like the IRS has to recycle a hard drive that’s at least 2 year old after it crashes. Sounds like a sold move without any risk of it blowing up again. How convenient! I am sure the same problem occurred with the other people whose emails also mysteriously have vanished because of some mechanical failure. It’s just a coincidence that the people that have mechanical failures at the IRS are the ones under investigation. I still ask where the backups are. I bet that we will find out that the dog ate the tape drives or they stored that stuff on the cloud and it rained, causing them to lose it!

Can you imagine the reaction from the left if they had caught the Boosh administration using some government agency, let alone one as powerful as the IRS, to target their political enemies, only to be told they couldn’t get a look at the evidence from the major perpetrators under investigation, because all the people involved suffered mechanical failures, of one sort or another, and that the storage for the evidence was then recycled/destroyed? Do you think the LSM would be mute like it is now about this revelation, or would be getting demands for answers? I guess the Pulitzer prize doesn’t hold as much sway in the DNC propagandist community it once had. Or maybe it is just, as I pointed out at the start of this post, that Nixon’s crime was to be a republican.


Now I am certain the WH was behind the IRS attacks

I am with Glenn H. Reynolds, whom I think hits the IRS scandal nail right on the head when he points out there is no way the WH was not involved. After revelations that Lois Lerner isn’t the only one whose emails the IRS has lost, there are 6 other people being investigated and all their emails conveniently have gone missing too, I can’t help but conclude this is deliberate.

We already know they have computer backups, even at the IRS which being a government entity conceivably is plagued by the fact nothing is too terrible for government work, so at a minimum this lost email nonsense amounts to stalling the ongoing investigation until after this or some other election. But considering the corruption and down right criminal nature of the left, and especially the members of this administration, I believe this is something far more nefarious that’s going on. They got caught. This WH directed the IRS to give the FBI confidential information so they could then attack political enemies. If it ended there things would already be horribly wrong, but there is more. Our media is helping the crooks cover up instead of telling the American people the truth. Worse yet, this is the story we know of. How many others are out there? How many people have been brought low by our own government agencies under command from the crooks that promised us better?

And yes, these are the fucking idiots that the left feel should run our healthcare. I can’t wait to be told by some asshole bureaucrat with delusions of grandeur that my records have been lost, and so, I am going to just buck up and die. That’s then followed by a smirk and a comment about how I didn’t lick my progressive betters’ fucking cocks with enough gusto. This is the future the left wants for all of us. Remember that whenever they tell you they care.

In the mean time Nixon says he wants to un-resign! If these fucks can actually do what he only asked for and get away with it, then he made a huge mistake caving in. Our media is disgusting. They are more than content to provide cover for these criminals, and are proud of helping fuck us all over.

About that IRS non-scandal Obama told us not to worry about

As if there was any doubt that the left’s desire to have the LSM help them kill this story’s news cycle and the WH’s constant denial that there was nothing wrong here wasn’t a dead giveaway that the IRS targeting of Tea Party organization was deliberate and planned, probably at the highest levels of our collectivist controlled government, we now find that with the release of the latest drab of information, we have confirmation that the DC office was behind the orders. And it doesn’t end there, Senator Levin, whom suddenly isn’t running for reelection – after owning his seat for decades – we now find out, was behind a lot of the pressure. Can you imagine these sorts of revelations coming out about a republican president only to have the LSM ignore the story still?

From the Judicial Watch site we get:

One key email string from July 2012 confirms that IRS Tea Party scrutiny was directed from Washington, DC. On July 6, 2010, Holly Paz (the former Director of the IRS Rulings and Agreements Division and current Manager of Exempt Organizations Guidance) asks IRS lawyer Steven Grodnitzky “to let Cindy and Sharon know how we have been handling Tea Party applications in the last few months.” Cindy Thomas is the former director of the IRS Exempt Organizations office in Cincinnati and Sharon Camarillo was a Senior Manager in their Los Angeles office. Grodnitzky, a top lawyer in the Exempt Organization Technical unit (EOT) in Washington, DC, responds:

EOT is working the Tea party applications in coordination with Cincy. We are developing a few applications here in DC and providing copies of our development letters with the agent to use as examples in the development of their cases. Chip Hull [another lawyer in IRS headquarters] is working these cases in EOT and working with the agent in Cincy, so any communication should include him as well. Because the Tea party applications are the subject of an SCR [Sensitive Case Report], we cannot resolve any of the cases without coordinating with Rob.

The reference to Rob is believed to be Rob Choi, then-Director of Rulings and Agreements in IRS’s Washington, DC, headquarters.

And plenty more. And yet, this is not a major news story that results in salivating journalists, eager for a Pulitzer, going after the facts. Nixon was robbed, I tell you. I am sure it isn’t caused because the media is dominated by liberal democrat ass kissing sycophants, and that media bias is just something sore losers invent to explain why so many of the unwashed masses buy the liberal clap trap. The left is corrupt. Beyond anything people could imagine. They are dirty players. There is a reason they accuse the other side of all manner of illegal and bad things, but contrary to their assertion that it is because that’s happening, it is now obvious that they do this because they assume since they are doing it the other side must be doing it too.

Nixon called. He wants his presidency back.

Obama’s new America

Can you imagine the treatment from the media and the left if a republican administration had their State Department state that Prosecutions of journalists who refuse to disclose their sources for national security-related stories do not qualify as harassment? Well, Obama’s State Department just made that case, and the LSM is mum.

“Individuals are required to testify in court cases all the time,” Jen Psaki said during Monday’s press briefing. “There is an enormous difference between when we’re talking about an individual revealing classified information and what we’re seeing happening around the world.”

The exchange was a follow-up from Friday, when Psaki celebrated World Press Freedom Day. “We will highlight emblematic cases of imperiled reporters and media outlets that have been targeted, oppressed, imprisoned or otherwise harassed because of their professional work,” she said of the coming State Department initiative.

When Psaki was asked about the case of New York Times reporter James Risen “who was ordered in July to testify in the trial of a former Central Intelligence Agency official accused of leaking information to him,” Psaki replied Risen was not charged “for simply exercising [his] ability to tell a story.”

The part that is frightening is that the Obama administration has repeatedly singled out and harassed reporters that pissed them off, often just because said reporters inferred or talked about all the abuses and illegal shit the various entities in the Obama administration are doing, by having the Obama administration’s prosecutorial arm claim national security violations require them to find out who divulged their misbehavior, and then all so they could exact vengeance on any and all whistle blowers.

No administration has been more hostile to freedom of information and abusive to the press, resorting to an incredible level of secrecy to hid their massive abuses and illegal activity, ironically after they promised to be the most transparent administration ever after the left lied about the secrecy surrounding the previous administration, as this administration. Nixon was forced to resign for merely asking the IRS to provide him information on his enemies. Amongst the plethora of abuses and crimes of this administration is the no longer deniable use of the IRS, which actually went far beyond Nixon’s wildest dreams, to help the democratic party coordinate actions and attacks against their political enemies, nut just before the 2010 elections, but which is seemingly still ongoing considering the DOJ keeps turning a blind eye to it.

Tyranny: it’s what’s Obama’s changed America is like.

Why do we need new rules for this?

I seriously was baffled that we have to pass new laws to punish government workers abusing power at the IRS. If you have been living under a rock, this is about the IRS specifically, by orders from up on high, targeting the enemies of the Obama administration for political reasons. From the article about the new laws:

A comprehensive tax-reform plan House Republicans will unveil this morning takes dead aim at what Republicans perceive to be the IRS’s persistent abuse of its authority. According to Republican aides familiar with the plan, it will curb the power of the nation’s tax-collecting agency, something Republicans have attempted to do since the agency admitted to improperly singling out conservative non-profit groups last May.

The legislation, authored by Ways and Means Committee chairman Dave Camp (R., Mich.), introduces reforms that directly address the circumstances that led to last year’s scandal. The specter of Lois Lerner looms large in the minds of many Republicans, and the plan mandates the termination of any IRS employee found to have taken official action for political purposes. The 1988 bill that restructured and reformed the IRS spells out ten actions for which the IRS commissioner must terminate an agency employee after an “administrative or judicial determination” that the employee has committed the prohibited action — among them, providing a false statement under oath on a matter involving a taxpayer and violating the rights of a taxpayer. Today’s bill would add the commission of politically motivated acts to the list.

I guess this is why Obama told us there was not a smidgen of a scandal related to the abuse of power at the IRS. If we need to pass a law that prevents IRS employees from using the office to further the political agenda of one party, obviously it means that the IRS going after the enemies of the state, which in the banana republic we have been living in for the last 6 years, by default are the political enemies of the people in power, is not illegal. So, I guess, there is no scandal. But I can’t help but feel that the other political party, even if falsely accused of this or done a fraction of what we know was done, would not have been given this kind of a pass. Nixon says he wants to unresign. After all, he was hounded out of office by the press for just asking the IRS to do some dubious shit. Obama and his people ordered the abuse – let’s stop pretending otherwise please, because you have to be a fucking lying asshole to still think these orders didn’t come from up high – profited from it, and now have a press that is covering up for them.

How do we spell banana republic again?

No fucking way!

The fact that the IRS ONLY audited conservative 501(c)(4) HAS to be an unfortunate coincidence! After all Obama told us there was not a smidgen of corruption or a chance that the IRS, more likely than not under direction from D.C., attacking Obama and the left’s political enemies. Bet here we have yet another revelation that this was a concentrated effort to target only conservative entities.

Less than two weeks after President Obama insisted that there wasn’t even a “smidgen of corruption” involved in the IRS targeting scandal, it appears that the scope of that scandal is widening.

Dave Camp, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, revealed yesterday that the committee’s investigation had found that it wasn’t only conservative groups applying for 501(c)(4) status that came in for IRS targeting and harassment. Existing 501(c)(4)’s were targeted, as well. In fact, Camp stated,

At Washington, DC’s direction, dozens of groups operating as 501(c)(4)s were flagged for IRS surveillance, including monitoring of the groups’ activities, websites and any other publicly available information. Of these groups, 83% were right-leaning. And of the groups the IRS selected for audit, 100% were right-leaning.

That’s right — “somehow,” every single 501(c)(4) that the IRS selected to endure the time, expense, distraction and stress of an audit just happened to be conservative.

That’s not a coincidence, and the article points that out as well:

The fact that existing 501(c)(4)’s were targeted along with applicants is important. First, though it isn’t conclusive, it does provide further evidence (as if any were needed!) that the scrutiny endured by conservative 501(c)(4) applicants had less to do with “confusion” over the (c)(4) rules than with efforts at political suppression. Second, it suggests that the targeting was part of a deliberate, widespread agency policy rather than restricted to “bad apples” in just one narrow area.

And I am long past the excuse making for these crooks. Please! It walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, and acts like a duck, because it is a duck. This was an orchestrated effort by the left to suppress and oppress political enemies. It’s not the first case of this behavior either. This sort of corrupt shit is prevalent and pervasive. Nixon is spinning so fast in his grave that with some magnets and wires we could power NYC from the electricity it would generate. Referring to what we have become under Obama and the left these days as a banana republic is an insult to banana republics. But our media can’t be bothered, because Black Jesus needs to be protected.
