Skip to comments.Is the IRS scandal about to explode in Obama's Face?
Posted on 07/20/2013 5:08:04 AM PDT by Red Statements
Newly released information shows a very close relationship between President Obama and his man at the IRS, who delayed the Tea party applications. William Wilkins is a long time donor to the democratic party and once fought a case against the IRS in which he defended Jerimiah Wright and the Trinity Church in 2008.
Wilkins was a registered lobbyist for Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr since 1988, and was also a member of the Tax Practice Group, where he counseled nonprofits on compliance. As a lobbyist, he spread money around to both republicans and democrats, but Wilkins worked for the democrats from 1981 to 1988 as democratic counsel for the Senate Finance Committee.

explode? maybe. But not in his face. He’s slicker than Teflon Bill.
“Hes slicker than Teflon Bill.”
With all due respect, one doesn’t have to be that slick when the media have your back. This whole administration, like the Clinton administration, has operated in a shielded environment
What will be interesting will be to see if he spent as much time in the White House as the IRS head, whether those meetings overlapped, and who else was present.
Not if he can get the usual suspects to riot first.
Naw, it won’t “explode” in Obama’s face. The media will back him when he simply says, “I heard about it like you did when I read it in the newspaper. I knew nothing about it.”
These people excel at breaking the law right in front of your face while no one notices. Isn’t it obvious that this man received a quid pro quo for quaffing the Trinity Church hubbub?
Will the public take time off from talking about justin beaber’s uncivilized bathroom habits and pay attention to the agency that can take all their money and send them to jail?
No they won’t. Obama made sure of that by doing his 20 minute standup routine on Trayvon.
Is the source your blog?
Did you recently change your FR screen name?
How refreshing it is to read someone who can actually connect the dots for a change and doesn't drone on about how "teflon" Obama supposedly is, like some around here do and mistakenly think they're cynicism actually passes for received wisdom.
The point being, if an employee of a mayor is willing to accept years in jail to protect the mayor, just imagine the control a president has over those willing to protect his legacy. Don't be surprised if silence prevails.
couldn’t happen to a nicer guy
No. It doesn’t matter what he does.
Obama is untouchable....he is black, liberal, lawless, and has the media complete support....
...and a gutless, feckless, craven opposition....
I hate to say that NOTHING will come if this. Nixon was hounded out of office for mere trifles in comparison. There are scores of reasons to impeach Obama, but no one in Washington or the media gives a rats posterior. I fear that Obama will bit by bit grab more power and eventually become dictator and will be met by nothing more than shrugs from the GOP.
Obama has pigmentation immunity. Nothing will harm him.
This time, however, the media has been silenced through threats and assassinations so it includes the so-called “conservative” media and pundits as well. The country is literally being run by a regime mafia, equipped with all the authority and secret weapons of the United States of America. Until those threats are dealt with and disabled, this is truly NOT a free country.
It takes someone to stand up and PROSECUTE.
We have nobody willing to do that.
Besides, the IRS ‘thing’ was AGES ago, newswise, wasn’t it???
They’re sittin’ on powder keg of many tyranny actions... thus the DemWits and their media “Lewinskis” are doing their damn best to keep pouring “Trayvon water” on this and other Obama kindling.
No, what WILL take down this pretender (and us as well) is a Benghazi that doesn't go away. A crisis ongoing that falls to the president to manage and from which he cannot hide.
Of all the leaders in the world OURS has never been in any sense, tempered, tested or tried. He has overcome no resistance to achieve anything. There has been in his ENTIRE LIFE no process of forging internal resources or Leadership skills. Events will reveal this pretender before the end of his second term.
and on the flip side
It is dangerous to be “near” that kind of power (and evil).
Don’t kid yourself (you know better too) but Hillary is as evil as Obozo, a pretty big order.
“Events will reveal this pretender before the end of his second term. “
From your mouth to God’s ear (I know he does not need to hear it, he already knows)
Because of that he can get away with anything.
Call it reparations or whatever, no one will hold him accountable.
And in the end it will be all George Bush’s fault anyway.
“Because of that he can get away with anything.
Call it reparations or whatever, no one will hold him accountable.”
I suspect the demand to pay reparations is coming. Probably after the 2014 elections, particularly if the Democrats capture the House. McCain, Graham, and Rubio will be at the front of the line to vote for it. Even if the Democrats don’t control the House, Obama will ask for reparations so he can paint the House Republicans as racist if they refuse to go along. There is no downside to making this an issue in 2015.
Reparations are the perfect weapon for a Marxist intent on destroying the nation:
1) Fires up racial divisions by levying a tax on one race to pay out to another race. This completely rips apart what is left of the social fabric of the country.
2) Ensures minorities will vote Democrat forever
3) A massive tax to pay the reparations would destroy the economy.
4) Completely draws attention away from all of the other anti liberty executive actions of the bureaucracy.
5) Accomplishes his goal of “equalizing” wealth.
6) Sets the precedent for future wealth equalizing taxes by the federal government to benefit specific groups.
FLashback: Obama said he found out about it on the news like most of us did!
Obama: If true, IRS scandal is outrageous
Newly released information.
Wonder who didn’t get the pay off ? look like Barry is going to get the kiss off.
Maybe, but the Clinton’s knew how to keep throwing bones to the opposition to keep them off-center, in line, and moving with them. Zero and crew are amateurs in comparison, burning the ship around them to forward their anti-US, pro-global, racist agenda. I’m confident old barry-boy and company has a bugout plan in place should things go south for them, but I’m also sure the Clinton’s and their backers are PO’d that barry is sacrificing their future for his current agenda-pushers power grab. I also suspect there is a bigger power-play being made here, that would “cut” out all others who aspire to the throne. I hope I am wrong, but I’m keeping my options open...
The problem is exactly “who” would be dealt with. obama reads what’s on the teleprompter. Sometimes, when he’s high, he might hem and haw a while. But there are much bigger folks calling the shots.
Lets not forget the power to pardon upon leaving office. Lets hope convictions come after this administration is gone.
Most Americans just don’t care if a Democrat president is dirty. It’s a sad state of affairs when lapses of character, constitution shredding and corporate welfare trump conservative values. Add Obama’s enablers in the media and you have a president who really can’t be touched.
If a local crime in Sanford can bring a certain race en masse out into the streets, can you imagine the race revolution if anyone tries to disturb one hair on the Fuhrer’s head?
Which might be why he gave that “I am St. Skittles” speech.
Takes one “fellow traveller” in a senior political appointment position to corrupt and entire agency
I still contemplate this type of corruption, and possible solutions.
The Politican rarely goes to jail for his malfeasence. The Politicans can spend obscene amounts of money to get re-elected and they are never accountable.
I hear Levin pointing to term limits, two terms and you are out. That, unfortunately can lead to a machine politics system where new politicians are beholden to the same union/pupetmaster
I'm so sick of the defeatist drones around here.
Not sure why they even log in. It would be better if they didn't.
Yes to both of your comments.
I went on a binge a while ago replying to people who constantly post comments like ‘It’s hopeless nothing will ever change nothing will touch him we lost they win” etcetc.
You’ll notice that often such people post that defeatist all is lost stuff constantly.
Makes you wonder about their motives.
I am in complete agreement with that statement. Actually, this is so deeply entrenched in who and what they are that what we see as overt is actually the tip of the iceberg. That what we are seeing is their ‘cleaned up’ version for public consumption is scary.
Obama’s world view is the typical sophomoric drivel that gets spoon fed to the susceptible by pathetic leftist university faculty every day. He never matured beyond that, and it feeds his narcissistic need to believe that he is one of the brightest and most educated people in the world, and that he knows what's best for the world.
Unlike most people who, when confronted with activist ideological university professors just thought of them as ‘the weird uncle in the basement’ who they had to appease long enough to pass their class, people like Obama actually believed and integrated that crap into their core being.
Narcissists who have the need to feel like the future of the world depends personally and specifically on them are particularly vulnerable to this. Obama fits that description to a T.
No. He’s black, and therefore immune form any type of repercussions.
Larry Sinclair explode in his face - hopefully this IRS scandal will damage his political career...
Hell no. The only thing that explodes in Obamas face is Reggie Love
Good article here:
THE SATURDAY ESSAY

Rise of the Warrior Cop
Is it time to reconsider the militarization of American policing?
On Jan. 4 of last year, a local narcotics strike force conducted a raid on the Ogden, Utah, home of Matthew David Stewart at 8:40 p.m. The 12 officers were acting on a tip from Mr. Stewart’s former girlfriend, who said that he was growing marijuana in his basement. Mr. Stewart awoke, naked, to the sound of a battering ram taking down his door. Thinking that he was being invaded by criminals, as he later claimed, he grabbed his 9-millimeter Beretta pistol.

The police say that they knocked and identified themselves, though Mr. Stewart and his neighbors said they heard no such announcement. Mr. Stewart fired 31 rounds, the police more than 250. Six of the officers were wounded, and Officer Jared Francom was killed. Mr. Stewart himself was shot twice before he was arrested. He was charged with several crimes, including the murder of Officer Francom.
The police found 16 small marijuana plants in Mr. Stewart’s basement. There was no evidence that Mr. Stewart, a U.S. military veteran with no prior criminal record, was selling marijuana. Mr. Stewart’s father said that his son suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and may have smoked the marijuana to self-medicate.
No. I have zero confidence in the House or Senate to do their jobs.
It’ll be a lot of kabuki theater and nothing else.
Doug Hagmann says he traced the original media threats back to George Soros, David Axelrod, and Rahm Emanuel. I’d bet money that Valerie Jarrett, if given truth serum, could tell us a lot, as could the known criminal, attorney Bob Bauer.
For some reason, nobody is willing to go there. Could be the dead bodies that are piling up...
I would have more sympathy for Mr. Stewart if he wasn’t growing marijuana in his basement.
Yeah... Maybe Issa needs to have JUST ONE MORE hearing where blatant malfeasance, treason, and blatant criminality are on display...
THEN The House GOP will get off it’s ass.
If they haven’t by now, it’s because GOP leadership has been compromised. Nothing will change until leadership is changed.
Only two ways to do that. Voting or assassination.
By my best guess, Tea Party has one more election before the gloves come off completely.
He’s exposed. Problem is, half the Country doesn’t care.
