The 'Independent' Revenue Service
Wall Street Journal ^ | May 14, 2013 | Editors

Posted on 05/15/2013 10:30:29 AM PDT by garjog

The White House says Mr. Obama only learned of the IRS political abuses from news reports. Funny, that's also how they learned about the Justice Department seeking the phone records of the Associated Press. And who knows what the State Department or "the intelligence community" was up to on Benghazi. The Washington Examiner's David Freddoso joked on Twitter that "Seal Team 6 is the only govt agency that acts directly on Obama's behalf." All others are run by career officials who keep screwing up. Your "independent" government at work.

It’s funny how Bath-House Barry knows so little about EVERYTHING going on under his nose.

It almost seems as if they’re laying the groundwork for #11:

Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record—Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963

#11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.

It's how he learned of the Osama Bin Laden raid also.

Which news organization broke this IRS story, what did they know, when did they know it and MOST importantly, HOW did they know it?

Atty Gen. Eric Holder, CBC, IRS, ACLU Conspire With Black Religious Leaders To Re-Elect Barack Obama.

Excerpt:
In a bold move, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is taking Barack Obama’s campaign messages to the streets in September, specifically to several hundred Back church leaders (members of the Conference of National Black Churches) who represent about 10 million congregants. Holder is heading up a team, including the IRS, the Congressional Black Caucus, and attorneys from the ACLU, which will meet with a group of Black pastors to essentially tell them how to participate in the the November 2012 election without jeopardizing their 501(c)(3) tax exemption status–code for how to tell your congregants how to vote for Barack Obama without getting into tax trouble. It’s little more than a quid pro quo–Black church leaders urge their congregants to vote for Obama in exchange for specific instructions on how to walk the fine line of the U.S. tax code.

It's not funny at all, but while I've been telling you about this guy being very stupid and unable to attract people with useful talent, too many of you sit about imagining he's some sort of mastermind rather than a simple high functioning moron.

The Benghazi, IRS and DOJ nonsense is a direct consequence of Obama's inability to find talent. Instead, he finds idiots or criminals ~ take your pick Geitner, Holder, Clinton..... ~ all of them!

He didn't even attract competent Commies!

Court Orders ‘Deletions’ in Clinton IRS Report
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1521024/posts
November 12, 2005
A three-judge panel overseeing Independent Counsel David Barrett’s investigation into abuses by the Internal Revenue Service under the Clinton administration has ordered Barrett to make “discrete deletions” is the draft he submitted 15 months ago. The deletion order “has stoked speculation that [it] has more to do with the next presidential campaign,” reports the Wall Street Journal, noting widespread rumors that “the draft report contains information potentially embarrassing to another Clinton administration figure, former first lady and current New York Sen. Hillary Clinton.”

So, at the exact same time Attorney General Holder, the CBC, and the IRS were working together to “educate” Obama voters in hundreds of churches across the country, we are supposed to believe that the audits, delays, and IRS focus on conservative groups was only by “rogue” elements, and Holder and Obama knew nothing about it ...

It is encouraging to see that the media is now finally beginning to report on what a fraud Obama is.

Could be preaching to the chior, but since I am the poster of this article let me direct you to my educational blog The Obama Clarifier. http://obamaclarifier.blogspot.com/

Isn’t that how he heard about Benghazi? The news was on at the clubhouse when he came in to the 19th hole.
