Tag: Scandals ignored by the LSM

I knew it had to somehow be Boosh’s fault!

And as usual, the tards don’t let me down:

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton told federal investigators that Colin Powell, a former secretary of State, advised her to use a personal email account, the New York Times reports.

The newspaper said the information, from a three-and-a-half-hour interview with Clinton in July, is included in notes the Federal Bureau of Investigation gave to Congress on Tuesday.

The NYT also cites a book by political journalist Joe Conason that says during a conversation at a dinner party hosted by another former secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, in Washington in 2009, Powell advised Clinton to use her “own email” except for classified communications.

The newspaper says it received an advance copy of the book, called Man of the World: The Further Endeavors of Bill Clinton.

“Toward the end of the evening, over dessert, Albright asked all of the former secretaries to offer one salient bit of counsel to the nation’s next top diplomat,” Conason writes in the book, according to the NYT.

“Powell told her to use her own email, as he had done, except for classified communications, which he had sent and received via a State Department computer.”

“Saying that his use of personal email had been transformative for the department,” Mr. Powell “thus confirmed a decision she had made months earlier — to keep her personal account and use it for most messages,” the extract continued.

That emphasis is mine. Because this scumbag Clinton is again trying to confuse the issue by pretending what she did was the norm, which is that she had used her personal account- as advised – to conceal the nefarious and criminal activity of that Clinton foundation funds – but ignored the most important part of that advice she got: EXCEPT FOR CLASSIFIED COMMUNICATIONS!

If you for a second doubted that Clinton being let off was political and an act of corrupt government, note how others are not given the same latitude for far less. But that’s what the US has become after the last 8 years: a banana republic.

Banana republic it is..

If you doubted we had a gangster government, where the laws of the land applied to the peons and not the credentialed pompous inept but full of themselves elite, doubt no more:

In an unusual move, FBI agents working the Hillary Clinton email case had to sign a special form reminding them not to blab about the probe to anyone unless called to testify.

Sources said they had never heard of the “Case Briefing Acknowledgment” form being used before, although all agents must initially sign nondisclosure agreements to obtain security clearance.

“This is very, very unusual. I’ve never signed one, never circulated one to others,” said one retired FBI chief.

An FBI agent currently on the job admitted, “I have never heard of such a form. Sounds strange.”

Meanwhile, FBI agents expressed their “disappointment” over FBI Director James Comey’s decision not to recommend charges against Clinton, sources close to the matter told The Post.

“FBI agents believe there was an inside deal put in place after the Loretta Lynch/Bill Clinton tarmac meeting,” said one source.

Another source from the Justice Department was “furious” with Comey, saying he’s “managed to piss off right and left.”

Ya think? After 8 years of Obama doing this sort of crap, I guess you can call it his third term if Hillary wins. This woman should be making license plates in either an orange or pin striped suit, with a tattoo of he owner done with a needle and ink on her flabby ass saying she is the property of some bull dyke.

Thus dies democracy

If you had any doubt that the inept, corrupt, and totally evil credentialed aristocracy that today pretends to run the western world could hold its laws, its system of government, and its very people in more contempt than it does, just read about how they have again proven that they consider themselves above the law that they would use to crucify us peons, as Hillary gets away with a crime none of us would survive:

FBI Director James Comey announced Tuesday that the FBI will not recommend federal prosecution of Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server to store what turned out to be thousands of classified documents in her emails.

The U.S. Justice Department has the final say, but Attorney General Loretta Lynch said last week that she ‘fully expects’ to act on whatever the FBI recommends. The FBI doesn’t expect any criminal charges to result, Comey said.

‘We are expressing to the Department of Justice our view that no charges are appropriate in this case,’ he said.
‘In looking back into our investigations into the mishandling or the removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts.’

Just WOW!. Comney has basically made the case that someone that compromised national security, and broke laws that have destroyed other people for far less, gets off because she is part of the inner circle that fancies itself above these laws and thus gets a pass. I have for a long time held the legal system in contempt and have wondered if I would trust it to be fair if I were up against it. I now have the clearest answer possible to that question, and it is a resounding “Not a fucking chance”. And the fucking idiots wonder why we had the Brexit vote or the rise of Donald Trump in the US, whom by the way proceeded to say exactly what people like me have said repeatedly about this case:

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump fired back almost immediately on Twitter.

‘The system is rigged,’ he wrote. ‘General Petraeus got in trouble for far less. Very very unfair! As usual, bad judgment.’

‘FBI director said Crooked Hillary compromised our national security. No charges. Wow! #RiggedSystem,’ a second tweet read.

As Trump points out, Petraeus got fucked over by this very administration of all things, which used a far lower bar to to throw the full weight of the law at him and make sure he would never be able to run for political office or pose the threat they perceived in him, after they made him a criminal and a security issue. Note that Obama’ administration has set new records for using the espionage act against its enemies. Yet Hillary does far worse and Comney comes back and gives us the following shit:

‘Although we did not find clear evidence that sec Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws,’ Comey said, ‘there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.’

Comey said the FBI determined that before Clinton deleted tens of thousands of her ‘personal’ emails, her attorneys deleted several work-related messages. The lawyers didn’t read them all but searched keywords to determine which of them might qualify as government records.

But despite her incomplete submission to the State Department, he said, ‘we found no evidence that any of the additional work related emails were intentionally deleted.’
Comey acknowledged that rank-and-file government employees might not receive a clean legal bill of health in similar circumstances, and might also have their security clearances revoked.

‘This is not to suggest that in similar circumstances a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions, but that’s not what we’re deciding now,’ he said.

And, he insisted, ‘all the cases prosecuted’ in other instances of mishandling classified files ‘involved some combination of clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information or vast quantities of information exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct or indications of disloyalty to the United States or efforts to obstruct justice.’

Since when was ignorance of the law an excuse to be let off the hook? Ask yourself if a normal citizen, or better yet republican politician, after the revelations we have of abuses of power, would have been allowed to be given a pass while a republican held the White House. Ask yourself if They would be given a pass while running for the highest office in the land, especially if they had made the idiotic argument that they not only broke the law but helped our enemies spy on us and compromise our efforts around the globe, while using the excuse that it was their incompetence that allowed it to happen, and not a willful disrespect for the legalities that would have maybe exposed the nefarious and criminal activities they were involved in and decided were only possible to hide by not following the law that would prevent the very things we got. Ask yourself if the media and the corrupt left would ever have resorted to contorting themselves into pretzels to excuse the inexcusable.

Remember that the revolution we celebrated just yesterday on the 4th of July had everything to do with people feeling their rulers basically held them in contempt and had a legal system they felt themselves above. Have no doubt that our credentialed political class no longer serves anyone but their own interests and needs. We now have had our legal system bless the criminal activities of a woman that has sold access to her and her influence to any taker with enough money, including foreign powers, as nothing but carelessness. This women, if she wins what is sure to be a rigged election, will then not only get the ability to sell more of us out, but be in a spot where they can blackmail her.

I guess we deserve these people as our leaders, considering how far we have fallen and how much we have let them get away with. When this ends badly, we shouldn’t blame anyone but ourselves for letting this happen. A bunch of credentialed buffoons that have sold us down the river and basically given up all pretense of doing what they do for any other reason but to enrich themselves now run the western world, and we are all going to pay for that. Tragic.

One step closer to the revelation that the orders came from the WH

So now we have a Forbes article titled “Obama Justice Department Was Involved In IRS Targeting, Lerner Emails Reveal” which leaves no doubt that Eric Holder’s DOJ, which has been tasked with investigating the connection to the WH of all things, was part of the IRS scheme to attack political enemies of the left:

Sadly, the 18 month investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative groups isn’t over, and it may be worse than anyone thought. A federal judge has broken loose more emails that the DOJ had surely hoped would never surface. The picture it reveals isn’t pretty. The documents prove that Lois Lerner met with DOJ’s Election Crimes Division a month before the 2010 elections.

It has to be embarrassing to the DOJ, which may not be the most impartial one to be investigating the IRS. In fact, the DOJ withheld over 800 pages of Lerner documents citing “taxpayer privacy” and “deliberative privilege.” Yet these internal DOJ documents show Ms. Lerner was talking to DOJ officials about prosecuting tax-exempt entities (yes, criminally!) two years before the IRS conceded there was inappropriate targeting.

Ms. Lerner met with top officials from the DOJ’s Election Crimes Branch in October of 2010. Although Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the DOJ (Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice, No. 14-cv-01239), the DOJ coughed up dirt only on court order. Even then, the DOJ handed over only two pages of heavily redacted emails.

What’s more, the DOJ withheld 832 pages in their entirety. They revealed that Mr. Obama’s DOJ called an October 8, 2010 meeting with the IRS “concerning 501(c)(4) issues.” On September 30, 2010, the DOJ’s Election Crimes prosecutor emailed Ms. Lerner:

“Hi Lois-It’s been a long time, and you might not remember me, I’ve taken on [REDACTED] duties. I’m looking forward to meeting you, Can we chat in advance? I’m a [REDACTED]“

Ms. Lerner responded on October 2, 2010:

“Sure-that’s a good Idea [sic]. I have a meeting out of the office Monday morning, but will try you when I get back sometime early afternoon. You can try me at 202 283-8848.”

Documents from a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the IRS show that Ms. Lerner asked the DOJ whether tax-exempt entities could be criminally prosecuted.

Heh, that faux scandal Obama told us this was sure looks real to me, and the reason why Lerner has avoided testifying now absolutely makes sense. Of course, I am not surprised to find out she sought legal advice from the DOJ on how to abuse power. Considering that this DOJ’s primary function has been to attack the enemies of the Obama administration, coordinate criminal and illegal acts with other government agencies- such as gun running schemes to undermine support for the 2nd Amendment (Fast & Furious) or telling the EPA to usurp the power of congress when congress couldn’t pass some job killing special interest helping bullshit, for example – and to foster every and all sort of racial or sexist bullshit story that would help the democrats divert attention from their abysmal economic record, I suspect there is a lot more bad shit to be found out still.

In the end the facts will come out and we will have verification that the orders and coordination came from the WH. I don’t doubt that. These are criminals in charge of things these days after all, and criminals will commit crimes. The sad part is that they still feel they are going to get away with the crimes and are eager to commit more of them. This is what the most transparent administration evah! has amounted to. Shit, they went far beyond my wildest predictions. Of course, the Obamanauts will tell you they meant well and evil Boosh!, so there. Can you imagine the response if a republican was doing what these people are doing from the left ad the media? Fucking idiots.

Nothing to see here…

Remember the days when a story like this one would be national news? I remember such a voter scandal both two, and then, a decade ago, when their guy was not able to steal the election. In the end both cases turned out to be bullshit stories, but the usual DNC mouthpieces in the LSM were all screaming about voter fraud and abuse, inciting their voter base – those that vote for a living, illegal voters, dead voters, multiple-time voters, convicted fellons that shouldn’t be voting, and other such assorted criminals – to take to the streets and protest. I guess in this case the story is not news, because the right party is benefiting from the crime, and likely because if it was investigated it would turn out not to be a bullshit story. After all the left’s major reason for accusing others of bad behavior or criminal activity is projection, after all.

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.

The strategy is apparent

I can discuss the prevalent double standard about how the left and their cronies in the LSM handle news about scandalous behavior from their side or that of their opponents – and have no doubts that the left believes anyone not with them is the enemy – but that’s a waste of time. When it’s one of their enemies that is in potential trouble, they are swift to pass judgment, based on flimsy information, if not outright conjecture and emotional drivel. Don’t take my word for it. Research how often anyone that disagrees with King Obama or anything else the left uses to keep its hold on power, and you will find anyone being critical of them automatically being labeled as racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-science, being a terrorist, or against progress, for which of course, only they stand.

Even more important is how they will spin things, even when there are no facts to back the bullshit they peddle up, to create trouble for those they view as the enemy. If there is a way to make the enemy look bad, they go for the jugular. Nobody is spared. They will dig through the garbage of a member of the opposition they view as a threat, and make up shit if they find nothing. They will immediately accuse the enemy of having criminal intent, practically always based on flimsy or no evidence. When they do have evidence, they hammer the narrative home. They will report and accuse local or small potato members of the enemy of abuses, criminal behavior, or of not adhering to the PC standards the left created (but doesn’t hold its people to), while ignoring real crime, abuse of power, and despicable behavior by prominent members of the loyal leftocracy. If you have the wrong letter next to your political affiliation, you are assumed to be guilty, and condemned, even though they might pretend they are not doing that, whether there is something there or not. And if it is there, it is national news.

But when it comes to one of their own, the leftists, when they can’t just ignore the story, will obfuscate the facts and paint the whole thing in the most positive light possible, pretending, with all seriousness, that what they are doing is waiting for the facts to come out. The right thing to do is to not prejudge, and to wait for the whole affair to play itself out In the meantime, again unless they can just drop the story and hope it goes away, they will tell you that the blatant impropriety, abuse of power, or downright criminal activity one of their own was caught in, is all made up, and that the evil opponents of progress are just trying to make hay out of nothing. These things I mention can all be found in the lack of coverage and the continued cover-up of the now almost 2 year old IRS scandal.

What is now obvious is that the objective is to drag it out so they can tell the low information voter that the story is old. It’s why people like me have an immediate and visceral reaction whenever the left tells us we need to wait out the facts and the investigation when one of their own was caught. We have to wait for whatever is practically exhibit A for the fact that there is illegal or criminal behavior involved.

Every scandal that Team Blue is involved in seems to follow this process. The government’s role in the Fast-and-Furious (have you heard what’s going on with this anymore?) anti-second amendment scheme, the despicable cover-up of what went down in Benghazi to protect Hillary and King Obama, the IRS targeting political opponents of the left, The lies and chicanery around Obamacare, and countless other such stories all require us to wait for the facts, only to then turn into the left telling us “what does it matter now anymore”. Despicable.

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.

Circling the wagons, but to no avail…

The left must be seeing the writing on the wall, because they are desperate, and while some believe this is a deliberate strategy, the fact remains that the democrats have shown themselves to be profiteers, liars, crooks, and in general scumbags of the highest orders. Obama has, yet again, set a new low for the office. The latest shenanigans come in response to a poll pointing out that 61% of Americans now see Obama for the liar he is. The many lies about Obamacare are now smacking even the reality challenged leftiods smack dab in the chin.

The left lied about people that liked them being able to keep their plans. They lied about those that liked their doctor being able to keep them too. They lied about the whole thing’s cost to the public as well as the direct costs to individuals. They lied about it covering everyone. They did a bang up job of convincing the saintly leftist lot that likes to do good deeds with other people’s money that the ACA was doing just that, only to then stick it to them. They lied about being ready to implement something this drastic and potentially destructive. In short, they lied about this thing doing anything but destroying a viable healthcare system. But most importantly, they tried to tell people to ignore what was happening to them and to keep sucking the leftist cock, resorting to a victory dance, when what was called for was a wake.

Yeah, the left really believes that if they tell the lie enough times, people will believe it. After all, this strategy has worked well enough for them in the past, but the truth is that people are getting shafted, and nothing serves to force a libtard to be less inclined to swallow the ideological leftard bullshit than a nice slap in the face from reality. Obamacare, with just the individual mandate in play, has done that, and done that hardcore. And just wait until the employer mandate goes into effect. There is a reason they postponed that thing going live until after the 2014 election. They hope they can lie their way out of that one as well before the 2016 election cycle, is my guess.

The thing is that all that lying has finally come home to roost. Here is the gist of it, from the article:

Since it became painfully clear in 2013 that Obama had lied about Obamacare since 2009, it has been increasingly difficult for many Americans to continue accepting at face value his statements on other major public issues. In both the Benghazi and IRS scandals, for example, Obama claimed to have known nothing about them until they were reported in the national media.

But if that were true, why has the president’s attorney general and so many other of his most prominent appointees withheld thousands of documents subpoenaed by Congress and requested by journalists under the Freedom of Information Act? Are there passages in those withheld documents that make it clear Obama knew much more than he has admitted?

Cry wolf all the time, and eventually you are going to get called out. People are then going to realize that where there is smoke there is fire. There are too many other scandals and crimes they lied their way out of, that they now will have people circle back on. Oh sure, I expect the LSM to do its best to keep this under wraps for the 2014 election, after all, they owe their political masters. But the American people, with great reason now that the lying has been exposed, are no longer just willing to drink the Kool-Aid. Even the dumbest people know that it is highly unlikely that you wouldn’t be hiding information that could clear you of an accusation of impropriety, or even criminal activity. And no, the drama around Obamacare and the Obama Administration’s stonewalling is not an isolated incident. The WH is inhabited by a crime syndicate and the likelihood is that those of us that had been calling attention to all the illegal and criminal activity by this WH didn’t even come close to showing how bad they are. There is little joy in being able to say “I told you so” at this point however, considering the pain they are causing us all.

IRS Scandal update

The proof that there not only is a scandal about the IRS and the DOJ colluding to fuck over conservatives, but that there was/is a massive breach of the law here has apparently not been noticed by the DNC controlled LSM, which is probably still desperately clinging to Black Jesus’ lie that this is all a manufactured scandal.

Corruption: New emails show that both the IRS and Justice Department were involved in a probe of Tea Party and other conservative groups. This is no mere scandal — it’s a major breach of the law.

The newly released emails were gathered for a Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan public interest law group. They show that former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner discussed with the Justice Department going after conservative groups that she believed lied about their political activities.

What’s shocking is that this discussion came just days before Lerner acknowledged that the IRS had investigated tea-party and other conservative groups but insisted that it was an isolated incident conducted by low-level officials in the IRS’ Cincinnati office.

It was a lie. In a May 8 email to Nikole Flax, then the chief of staff to the acting IRS commissioner, Lerner discusses a phone call from Richard Pilger, who headed the Justice Department’s elections crimes unit.

According to Lerner, Pilger wondered if the IRS could help him “piece together false-statement cases about applicants who ‘lied'” on applications for tax-free status.

In a subsequent email, Lerner responded: “I think we should do it — also need to include CI (the criminal investigation unit), which we can help coordinate. Also, we need to reach out to FEC (the Federal Election Commission). Does it make sense to consider including them in this or keep it separate?”

It’s been clear for some time that this goes beyond a mere rogue IRS operation in Cincinnati. But until now, we didn’t know how far it went.

As the emails show, it was a high-level conspiracy to use the offices and powers of the federal government — including the IRS, FEC and Justice — to falsely prosecute and harass the tea party and conservative political groups that opposed the Obama administration.

I still say this is the tip of the iceberg. By now it should be blatantly obvious, not based on me saying it, but on the constant revelations from so many sources and avenues about the overarching abuses by this administration, that these people are criminals and we are all being fucked over by them. Watch the LSM now invent some other distraction to help provide cover for the democrats. It’s an election year, after all.

Richard Nixon was unavailable for comment, but I hear that if you put magnets on him and his coffin you can power New York City from the electricity him spinning in his grave would generate. Obama, on the other hand, keeps telling us to look over there, and is getting away with much worse.
