Archive for the ‘IRS Tea Party Corruption’ Category

He’s tough and doesn’t take any guff but he’s not snarky to make political points. If the IRS Corruption Scandal occurred under a GOP administration, he’d be just as tough. You can just tell he loves this country and he loves the law and he loves our Constitution.

I think we may be approaching the point where IRS officials and their defenders will dread being questioned by Gowdy – he doesn’t tolerate BS well – that they will do just about anything to avoid that. Maybe even come clean about the corruption and offer materials that prove the corruption.

Here Trey Gowdy [R-SC] takes on a University of Baltimore law professor and runs rings around him. I think the best part is when he tells this guy -remember this is a law professor – that he’d starve to death as a practicing lawyer.

Trey Gowdy [R-SC]  is the real deal, no BS photo-op or sound bite for him. He knows what he’s doing – he was a former prosecutor before coming to the US House of Representatives – and doesn’t need to bloviate. Surgical-precision slicing of IRS Commissioner Koskinen here. Jim Jordan [R-TX] is also excellent; they make a formidable pair.

Thanks to the steady efforts of watchdog group Judicial Watch – they were tough during the Bush years too – we know proof positive that the IRS Corruption Scandal had its roots in DC, not a few middle level employees in Cincinnati. It only took 2 years, lots of money and federal judges to enforce FOIA requests from the promised “most transparent administration ever,” which was just another Obama lie. Yes, he’s a lying liar.

Long-serving and powerful Carl Levin [D-MI] recently decided to retire rather than face reelection, just when the judge ordered the release of these incriminating documents. http://www.jammiewf.com/2014/flashback-how-10-high-profile-democrat-senators-pressured-irs-to-harass-gop-and-tea-party-groups/

More focus on Levin here: http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/judicial-watch-new-documents-show-irs-hq-control-tea-party-targeting/

The new emails are simply damning, showing that Lois Lerner deliberately mislead or flat-out lied to the media and during Congressional hearings. No wonder Democrats are desperately trying to distract, deny and mock away from this awful scandal, a scandal that proves one political party in power used an official and powerful agency of our government to punish opposition and suppress their free speech. Nixon mused that he wished he could harness the IRS as a retributive force against his enemies but the IRS refused to comply. Is that because our government was less corrupt then or Democratic back then also?

This is what Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch, has to say about the release:
These new documents show that officials in the IRS headquarters were responsible for the illegal delays of Tea Party applications. It is disturbing to see Lois Lerner mislead the IRS’ internal investigators about her office’s Tea Party targeting.

These documents also confirm the unprecedented pressure from congressional Democrats to go after President Obama’s political opponents. The IRS scandal has now ensnared Congress.

BTW, liberal celebs like Jane Fonda endlessly use Nixon’s foiled attempt use the IRS against them as proof of their “courage” and political strength, receiving years of fawning from the liberal MSM and other liberals. WTH does it make the Tea Party people and other conservative/libertarians who were successfully stymied by a powerful administration afraid of their influence on American voters? I’ll match the courage of patriots Becky Gerritson or Scottie Nell Hughes any day against nasty the spoiled hypocrite Fonda. Ironically, Fonda parroted socialist sympathies during the 60’s and the Vietnam War but has always greatly benefitted from the capitalist US while the Tea Party groups parrot only US traditional patriotism but received socialist-level repression.

Of course, the biggest difference between the Nixon and Obama presidencies is that the MSM hated Nixon and worship Obama. If they had been “journalists” instead of lapdogs, Obama would have lost his reelection and this would have been cleared up long ago.

Rep Trey Gowdy [R-SC] was a respected prosecutor in his former life. He claimed all along that Lois Lerner didn’t assert her 5th Amendment rights to shut up because well, she surely didn’t shut up. She  made a number of statements on her guilt/innocence and conditions of accusations.  You can’t have it both ways, Ms Lerner; seventeen assertions is a lot of blabbing for a silent person.  http://twitchy.com/2014/04/10/brought-boom-to-the-room-trey-gowdy-dismantles-lois-lerner-like-a-boss-video/

          Published on Apr 10, 2014

          Trey Gowdy asserts that Lois Lerner waived her fifth amendment rights when she made 17 factual assertions before refusing to answer any questions and should be subject to cross examination.

He’s very effective during the House Oversight Committee hearing Thursday:

AG Mitchell tried this same obfuscation during Watergate. While it’s true larger sections of the media had investigative functions back then, there’s bloggers and social media today that play an important role in both impetus and definitive information. There’s a lot more Matt Drudges to find the stained dress today. This is crunch time for the IRS investigation, a scandal I find much worse than Watergate. Keep in mind that Nixon remarked that he wished he could use the IRS against his political enemies but he never did. Also keep in mind that no one, not even the Dems like Irwin believed Nixon knew about the burglary ahead of time but he tried to cover it up.

A democracy, or a republic for that matter, can’t stand when ordinary taxpayers believe their hard-earned money is used by a political party to push its own power and agenda. If a Republican were president, Democrats would be furious over this scandal. Everyone should be. We need a complete unbarred investigation, those who are guilty should be held accountable and those who’ve done nothing wrong should be exonerated. These IRS employees are on tape making partisan remarks, and pictures capture their Obama election buttons and stickers on government computers, etc. I’ve worked for the government and this is astonishing to me. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/apr/9/dallas-irs-office-plastered-pro-obama-stickers-scr/#.U0VzqjIp4xU.twitter and  http://www.jammiewf.com/2014/irs-employee-if-you-vote-for-a-republican-the-rich-are-going-to-get-richer-and-the-poor-are-going-to-get-poorer/

Excellent timetable of Lois Lerner and her actions in the IRS corruption scandal. http://waysandmeans.house.gov/news/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=375999

It was foolish of Rep Elijah Cummings to deny requesting info on the conservative True the Vote when the IRS began targeting the group. What was Cummings’ interest? Was he colluding with the IRS? Why lie about the request? http://washingtonexaminer.com/darrell-issa-emails-suggest-elijah-cummings-prompted-irs-targeting/article/2547007

Was this a joke? It doesn’t sound like one. Making this kind of joke when you are targeting the political enemies of  Obama sounds fishy. http://thehill.com/blogs/on-the-money/domestic-taxes/203116-documents-lerner-references-organizing-for-action-job

Where will it end? I don’t know. Watergate was a media obsession, reaching a fever pitch after the firing of special prosecutor Archibald Cox and the resignation of highly-respected Elliot Richardson. But today the corrupt MSM are determined to protect their chosen one, Obama. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/04/09/lawmakers-weigh-referring-lerner-case-to-doj-for-prosecution/?intcmp=latestnews

As usual, Iowahawk explains everything:

The left loves to rant about centuries-old injustice and tout the influence of the likes of How to Read Donald Duck but ignore their current actions. Hegemony is variously described as a predominant influence, an imperialist culture, aggression of a leader, often a country, over another, especially a smaller one. The left is furious over older, traditional hegemony but today the left controls our education, entertainment, unions, popular culture, and media.

They control the “News” by deciding what is and what isn’t news, by filtering the news to a particular agenda and by choosing who can report on the “News.”

Last year, Breitbart wondered about the expulsion of a reporter who questioned the Obama talking points: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2013/05/11/Brother-top-Obama-Offical-Oust-Sharyl-Attkisson  We got our answer today as CBS reporter ace Sharyl Attkisson resigned, frustrated with many months of liberal bias at the news station.  http://newsbusters.org/blogs/matthew-balan/2014/03/10/sharyl-attkisson-resigns-cbs-kept-spotlight-benghazi-fast-and-furious   Is it a coincidence that her computers were hacked last year? Is it a coincidence that the head of CBS News has a brother who is a national security advisor for Obama and helped edit the Benghazi talking points?

Last year the Koch Brothers considered buying the LA Times, which is owned by the same man who owns the Chicago Tribune and a friend of Barack Obama. Right on cue comes liberal protesters, who wanted the city council to prevent the purchase of the LA Times by the Koch Brothers on the grounds that the brothers were “intolerant” of opposing views. Not a single protester saw the blatant hypocrisy of their stance.  During interviews the protesters didn’t know the true political views of the Koch Brothers, and some didn’t read the newspaper but they were pushing an agenda fed them by a source they didn’t question. The Koch Brothers passed on the buy, and thus the liberal propaganda of the current LA Times is pretty much guaranteed to continue to a new liberal buyer. http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2013/05/koch-heads-beclown-themselves-again.php

How much influence should a newspaper have? Shouldn’t the emphasis of a news source be news instead of an agenda that requires scientific information they don’t possess? http://junkscience.com/2013/09/22/nytimes-obama-should-destroy-coal-industry-to-set-good-international-example/

They control education at all levels but especially higher education and greatly influence the political persuasion of voting age young adults. Ivy Leaguers  refused to allow NYC Police Commissioner Ray Kelly to speak at Brown, refused to allow world-renown neurologist but conservative Ben Carson to speak at the Johns Hopkins University commencement even though he had chaired a department at their university hospital, and now former SoS Condelezza Rice isn’t accomplished enough to speak at Rutgers. This isn’t just a bunch of radical students causing a ruckus, the ban on Rice was a faculty vote. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/03/09/rutgers-rage-against-rice-why-do-liberals-have-so-much-hate-for-black/?intcmp=latestnews

The most radical departments and the most unfriendly to traditional American values are the typical “studies” such as black, women, Latino, peace, social justice, etc., sociology, and English, especially creative writing. Did you learn how to “write” in freshman composition? In today’s more liberal colleges that is out while political activism is the norm. http://www.mindingthecampus.com/originals/2014/02/look_what_freshman_composition.html

The only limits to free speech are put on conservatives, otherwise it’s no-holds-barred, which makes you wonder why taxpayers don’t cut their monies to public universities. http://sweetness-light.com/archive/kids-see-pin-the-tail-on-the-anus-at-uc-berkeley#.Ux_0pziYZjp

You cannot trust your own government in regards to national security. http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2014/02/iranians-hacked-navy-network-for-4-months-not-a-surprise/  This administration is determined to make friends with Iran, no matter what the cost. Obama and company are sure if we simply expose our necks and reach out our hands in friendship, world peace and accolades will result. They are going to get us killed, after they get Israel destroyed.

http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2014/02/12/doj-aruges-to-court-against-rules-to-prevent-foreigners-from-voting/  Their political agenda to import more voters ignores not only what is legal or what is fair but what is a danger to our national security. This is what the liberals did to Britain and it’s blown up in their faces, resulting in a massive drain on the budget due to welfare drains, and threats to their peace from large numbers of Muslim immigrants who see their adopted country as the enemy to overwhelm.

Your government is corrupt, subverting justice to advance their political agenda. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/367269/credulous-and-tendentious-benghazi-editors  and http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/367253/krauthammers-take-times-benghazi-story-written-defend-democrats-nro-staff  and http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2013/01/28/Benghazi-Report.  People die and no one is to blame because the politics are more important than anything. No one is held accountable.

Using the public treasury as a private fund to retain political power is an el mucho Banana Republic blueprint. Using the national tax-gathering agency to restrain your political opponents is a bonus. http://pjmedia.com/blog/were-going-to-get-creamed-lerner-emails-paint-picture-of-planning-501c4-scrutiny/

The big business entertainment industry has made celebrities important spokesmen on subjects they know nothing about. There’s a constant flow of celebrities in Congressional hearings on AIDS, Africa, autism, global warming, chemicals, cancer research and education funding, These beautiful people are anything but experts, typically with only the most basic personal experience, but the television camera fixates on them. Please ignore their hypocrisy and silliness, and concentrate on their high cheekbones and hairstyles.

They are nearly always liberals, lemmings in a tight little clique of smugness. Unfortunately their influence is pervasive with young people. Their movies may be full of lies but they will live on for many years on the movie channels, and future generations will believe the fictions there, such as Kennedy assassination theories and that Ronald Reagan was racist, a complete lie invented to counteract many Americans’ belief that he was one of our greatest presidents. http://newsbusters.org/blogs/tim-graham/2013/12/30/screenwriter-butler-still-insisting-reagan-despised-every-civil-rights-i

Today Beyoncé and other stars decry the term ‘bossy’ in reference to girls. They pretend there’s no similar restrictions on boys/men but that’s nonsense. Men in leadership position are termed Alpha males and criticized for their ruthlessness and shortcomings in personal relations. Frankly if Beyoncé is worried about the self-respect of her little girl, I’d be more concerned with the singer parents constant songs of “bitch” and “ho’s” and “pimpin” and “nigga” and explicit sex simulations such as her recent references to oral sex a la Monica Lewinsky in the back seat of a limo. http://twitchy.com/2014/03/11/is-this-real-life-bassist-nails-beyonces-banbossy-hypocrisy/Maybe these pics don’t help much either. Role model, remember? :
