compensatory damages could start at a minimum of $250 billion.

Provided that these billions come from where? These lawsuits feed the beast.

Dissolve/reorganize the IRS, turn over its functions to the Treasury Dept, you should require a lot less personnel to enforce a simplified tax code. Win-win. You have broken up a corrupt entity and you have saved the tax money because you should need significantly fewer people to collect revenue.

We should also do the same to DHS...giving most of its law enforcement/investigative functions to the FBI and some to the Dept of the Interior.

Oh, and goodbye BATFE. Their one true legitimate activity, the “E” part could also be transferred to the FBI. The other 3 functions the “A, T, F” are all red-blooded American activities and should scarcely be regulated anyway.
I am joking a bit about the “A&T”, but the “F” is a Constitutional/Natural right and should not be infringed. :-D

There was something before the Appellate Court regarding Obama’s eligibility to be on the ballot due to fraudulent activities. I don’t know if the time period matches the request for the medical records though.

The IRS officials involved all the way to the top should be fired. Zero compensation should be paid. No way in hell I should pay some guy in CA via my tax dollars because some IRS agent saw his medical records. This should involve criminal prosecution not civil.

Obamacare needs to go. Let’s get back the Senate next year and repeal!

Any entity that has the authority to make sure you as an individual, business, or foundation pay your legally required taxes is corruptible by political hacks.

So, even moving collection enforcement to the treasury is not a foolproof fix.

Only way Obamacare is going down is if we get a veto proof majority in both houses — highly doubtful OR if there is some death panel-like or Nazi IRS like Obamacare scandal. The repubs are apt to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory again.

We need succinct ways of making the situation understood. I aim for simple, clear ways to communicate.

Stop raining on my parade ...:-D

The dissolution of the IRS will delay the corruption and lessen its egregiousness by reducing the number of tax collectors and by simplifying the tax code.

I am willing to give it a shot.

Keep it up!!! Hitler & Satan Obama are going down!!! Never give up working to destroy this American traitor, tyrant and would be dictator!! He is as guilty as they come!!! What a low life criminal and worthlees human being!!!

__________________________________________

But it’s all coming out now in a rush and the MSM is helping? I am wondering if they decided that they need to get Hilary in now before Obama offends the populace for another 4 years. I wonder if they’ve run the opinion polls etc. and realized they won’t have much chance of a dem getting elected after another 4 years of joblessness and lies.

It looks like Orly Taitz’ CA lawsuits and the gay marriage lawsuit were already settled at the state level by then. I’m not seeing any major lawsuits around then that make sense for this. I wonder if this was in anticipation of further eligibility lawsuits. I wonder if they knew yet, then, that Gary Kreep would be running for judge. Hm. Looks like Kreep filed his intention to run on Feb 13, 2012 so they didn’t know he’d be running.

“What litigation was going on in CA at the time, that they would want the medical records from all the judges (presumably for bribery purposes)?”

I am only guessing, but doesn’t the timing tie to the overturning of the citizen vote to ban gay marriage?

IMHO.......no.....just think the MSM is realizing that Obama is now permanently damaged goods!!! They are going to throw him under the bus very shortly!!! Why? His continuing in office puts the entire Democrat Party in great danger. Unless Obama resigns or is impeached, the Democrat Party is headed for a massive rejection and defeat come the mid-terms election in 2014!!! Obama is not a leader, just a criminal, thug, tyrant like Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Castro, Chavez, etc.!!! Actually...I’m being kind to him, he more akin to Satan himself!!!

All they needed on him was his kids’ adoption files.
They took a shortcut that wasn’t legal,

Mr. B means that the Roberts’ adoption may have some grey areas, and thus threatening to take the Roberts children actually works. I don’t know what the grey area is, but there is international law that adopted children must be adopted in their country of origin or some sort, and his kids from South America are blue eyed blondes. My guess is that everything appeared legal in South America (gee, no one down there ever works on bribery alone), but the judge and wife may have been able to figure out that the children might have come from elsewhere? Guessing.

In 2014, all physicians and clinics will hand over all electronic medical records for almost everyone in the USA, to the IRS. It’s part of Obamacare.

So these guys did it a little early, probably to test their algorithms.

You can bet your bottom dollar, I will mine, that these ‘several’ are not just a group of ‘several’ but part of a cabal to not only have immediate consequences on some people but also to set the stage for the much wider use of government on other selected persons. There are corrupt and evil people throughout the whole web of government.

I’m not sure why the article has to specify California judges out of a pool of 10,000,000 people who had their record stolen. I’d bet this has a lot more to do with blackmailing / extorting corporations than any couple of judges.

There’s a timeline of the litigation at the bottom of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Same-sex_marriage_in_California . By March of 2011 the issue was in the federal court, with the state courts having run their course.

Going to a physician that doesn’t use electronic records will be a very good idea from now on, especially for primary care. Paying out of pocket is also a good idea.

Not on the same subject but I’ve consistently thrown away the USDA farm census. I eventually got a call from some staffer asking if I got the forms. I said no. She said that they sent them to the same address as my tax return. I said I thought that was confidential information even between agencies and asked for her name so I could contact my congresscreep. She could not get off the phone fast enough.

This is a government worth of fearing.

There is a real concern since a government agency has been used for data mining
Imagine what could be done with medical records , psychological testing , divorce records, credit reports ,etc.
Plus, there will soon be a massive government operating data mining center set up in Utah
