did they go after any OWS groups? It seems to be another explosive growth was happening then. does anyone know of any organization under OWS banner that applied? This would certainly dismiss the nonpartisan issue.

follow the questionnaire - who developed it and when. I understand it was task force in WASHINGTON. Who was on the task force?

I suggest the committees ask for email that include any mention of the questionnaire (not just tea party and patriot).

Passive voice almost always equals an admission of culpability.

Crimes were committed!

'Mistakes were made'

Will Sutton: Sure, I made mistakes, at least one. It wasn't a mistake to rob banks since that was where the money was. My only real mistake was getting caught.

Nixon aide Ziegler finally had to own up in April of 1973, when President Nixon’s top aides, Bob Haldeman and John Ehrlichman, resigned in disgrace.

“Mistakes were made,” Ziegler said of his previous denials, adopting a phrase that has since been used by other government spokesmen trying to defuse other government scandals.

Steve Miller?

I see a yellow man, a brown man
A white man, a red man
Lookin’ for Uncle Sam
To give you a helpin’ hand
But everybody’s kickin’ sand
Even politicians

Where are you goin’ to
What are you gonna do
Do you think that it will be easy
Do you think that it will be pleasin’, hey

It’s my freedom
Ah, don’t worry ‘bout me, babe
I got to be free, babe
Hey

This guy should be fired, not for being a liar...but for being so stupid he can’t reason. My 6 year old grandson could connect the dots better than this idiot. Put a box of rocks in his chair and save the cost of a salary.

this is what criminals do, they commit crime and I concur with Rand Paul; obozo hussein and his entire administration is nothing but a criminal arm of the mafia and the NWO elites working to take down this country.

“RICO! Haul Big Sis before the Congressional Committee too”

Did I hear that a branch of the armed services wase also told to be on the watch for those groups, too? I’d love for all of the Department “heads” to be jailed along with their master. More dots? Maybe the msm will start to connect the dots and bring it to the publics’ attention since they were targeted themselves with the DOJ getting their phone records.(oh, more dots?)

The difference between now and 40 years ago is the reporters with the cajones are all women.

It’s not a mistake when a government official commits an act of tyranny, it’s treason.

Sorry Mr. Stevens.... Mistakes are unintentional actions with undesired outcomes. What was done here are intentional actions made with specific desired results expected.

Everything in this regime is "just a Mistake, I knew nothing about this or you should ask (insert agency here) Mr. "O" take responsibility you lout, You appointed the leaders of these Agencies and Cabinet Offices so therefore you are responsible.... the BUCK stops on your desk!!!!!

A “mistake” is forgetting to carry the 1 while doing addition.

Fill the jails with IRS and other Washington clowns from the “circus” and “sideshow”!

Too bad Al Capone isn’t still around and in his prime. It’d be cool to see these IRS attack dogs in the same cell as Al

The very fact confidential tax information on a political action committee was passed to the opposition to that PAC--likely on the behest of the Obama Administration--means a LOT of Federal laws governing privacy of tax filings were violated. A lot of people could be facing serious jail time over this debacle.

FBI...investigate....Prosecute.

Find out who gave the orders for the IRS to commit the crimes.

Congressional Investigation needed. Shut down the IRS and simplify the tax act.Now is the time to do it.

Now I wonder about voter fraud in places like Ohio and Florida. I never jumped on that bandwagon because it sounds like something the delusional people from DU come up with to explain why they loose elections, but now with this IRS stuff it makes me think it’s possible.

Haha, so many people (Obama’s people) HAVE to be coming out right now. All these HUGE, serious cover-ups and scandals coming out at once? Coincidence? No way, people are fed up, expect more in the next few days and next week.

There is NO way out for Obama and co. They are going down. What’s really fascinating is to think of how many OTHER people are going to save their own skins and tell the truth about what really has been happening.

EPA, too...what's the update on the EPA being used as 0bama’s sledgehammer to businesses?
Likely shouldn't break anything yet about that...too much info at one time. Remember, the average press corps “reporter” has an IQ of tops 75.

I think that Mao Tse Tung,having just been reminded of the tens of millions of Chinese who died as the result of his policies,said something very similar on his deathbed.

Alright, mistakes were made. But one can hardly hold the current incarnation of Holy Mother Church responsible for oversights of old.
