Rightwing News ^ | 4-10-14 | Duane Lester

Posted on 04/10/2014 4:18:20 PM PDT by kingattax

It seems like Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings has been bad. Rep. Darrell Issa wants to know why his staff was asking questions from the IRS, why these questions weren’t disclosed and why Cummings denied these actions when asked about them.

Nope. It will be up to Eric Holder’s Justice Department to prosecute him and...well, you know how that goes.

This is a violation of law. You cannot get IRS information on a tax payers. What we have is 5 to 10 in the federal pen for this liar who has now been exposed as using cocaine in front of an FBI agent. When confronted— HE FLIPPED!!! And started squealing on his terrorist friends. I think they will now whack him. Just a guess. What a scum bag!! and eric holder spoke nasty lies at sharpton’s 501c4 crap organization . You can’t make up how long holder resides in prison.

The purpose of the Democrat party is to elect thieves to office so that they will have access to the public treasuries in order to loot them.

Liberal blacks are the most corrupt politicians in America. They hate America and have absolutely no respect for her laws. Furthermore, there is a kind of honor among them for those who can cheat the system.

Conservative blacks on the other hand are just like the rest of us...they love the country and defend her honor.

Because it forces Obama’s hand, exposes him even further as the corrupt tyrant he is, and will drive his already horrific poll numbers even lower.

But most important, because sitting on your hands and doing nothing is not the thing to do.

We do it because we are a nation of laws and not of men. Justice.

Some conservative host I listen to, I think Mark Levin, was saying a while back that a contempt of Congress charge is outside the jurisdiction of the Attorney General, and he has no say in it.

Calling the Democrat Party the Party of Looters and Moochers describes them perfectly. They are a mob of moral reprobates who happily violate every single one of the Ten Commandments daily as a matter of habit and principle.

If anybody in the GOP did this they would be being prosecuted and facing serious jail time as we speak.

No. It's a pipe-dream. I mean, he should.

But he won't. Breaking the law means nothing if you're not officially charged with breaking the law.

I can't even conceive what pardons Obama will hand out in January 2017.

Mumia? Maybe.

Lois Lerner?

Probably

Jesse Jackson III

You KNOW that.

ALL drug offenders?

It's a BLACK RAT Government!...oh, I don't know - Al Franken, the Senator who never was - Hillary Clinton, who doesn't even know what a Benghazi is or what she'd do with one if she had one - IRS Commissioner Koskinen (or however it's spelled), who has to take two years, or at least until after the 2014 elections, to produce Lois Lerner's emails, a task that could be accomplished in less than a day by any first year computer sciences major - black or white, when it comes to 'rat corruption, there's plenty to go around.....

“- black or white, when it comes to ‘rat corruption, there's plenty to go around.....”

Agreed, but what I see is a wholesale increase in corrupt Black Politicians in increasingly higher places in our government. They far exceed their relative relationship to their percentage of our general population. I was actually quite surprised that a with the Sibelius departure, we didn't get yet another black criminal to head a cabinet department. Today, “blackness” trumps any number of other “traits” when the administration go looking for “talent.”Now even black street thugs are emboldened to attack white people with impunity. Yes, there has been "change," but "hope" went out the window five years ago or so.
