What did Obama know, and when did he know it?

A rigged election means that the present government is illegitimate and without authority beyond what it can impose by threat of the use of force.

IE, they are simply thugs in power.

Of course!...They held back everything HOPING the low information voter would punch his tickey anyway. Low and behold, they did! That’s why Obama cried...He just couldn’t believe he got away with it for another four years of f’ing America!

Here's the link to the IG report:

IRS Inspector General Report on Tax-Exempt Scrutiny of Political Organizations

This is from the report:

In the liberal ideologue mindset, the ends justify the means.

To Bill Ayers, one of Obama’s mentors and supporters, that potentially could include murdering 25,000,000 Americans.

I agree. As long as the drones get their freebies, they don’t care what Obama does. Same was true in Venezuela under Chavez.

Unexpectedly Lisa Myers of NBC makes some great points about this in the vid, “[I]f this fact came out in September 2012, in the middle of a presidential election? The terrain would have looked very different.” Yep, and if it was exposed at the same time that the Admin lied about the youtube vid, even RINO-Romney might have had a chance.

It’ll drag on for a while - then slowly people in the press will start to understand what’s really happening. When they start putting out the truth, the American public will be outraged.

A group of dems will go to Obama and ask him to resign... for the sake of the party. At that point we’ll either discover what Janet’s 1.6 billion bullets were for - or Obama will do the right thing - and follow in Nixon’s footsteps...

Would it have affected the outcome. Not do sure. The Obamabots would have voted for him anyway, the Romney-haters wouldn’t have voted for him anyway, and all of the other cheating still would have taken place.

I don't think so.

Obama is part of the Chicago machine. Scandals don't take a machine down, they just start attacking the ones who report it.

Living next door to IL, I have seen this play out a few times. The only question I have is this. Does Obama have the same loyalty from the national press as the machine does in IL? If he does, it will be off the radar by the end of June.

I don't see this hurting him as bad as many think it will.

“So what is the end game with this?”

This is a stress test of the state run media.
From time to time the regime needs to make sure their most important division is operating at top efficiency.

Did the whitehut know? Video at link, start at 6:00 mark

http://weaselzippers.us/2013/05/17/megyn-kelly-on-obamas-non-denial-denial-obama-didnt-deny-knowing-about-irs-targeting-he-denied-knowing-about-the-ig-report

Bloomberg reporter: Can you assure the American people that nobody in the White House knew about the IRS’s actions before your Counsel’s office found out about the IG probe?
Obama’s response: I can assure you that I certainly did not know anything about the IG report before the IG report had been leaked through press reports.
Kelly brings up that the AP thereafter interpreted that as as denial of knowledge of the IRS practices. AP headline was “Obama assures he did not know about IRS political targeting”, which of course, was not at all what he said but no doubt what he wanted the take away to be.
So if you don’t respond specifically to that direct a question, what may one conclude?
Either you did know, or you are so unclear as to the involvement of your administration, you choose to deflect the question.
McCarthy discusses the concept in the law of implied admission when one doesn’t actually respond.
The American people deserve much more than weasel responses from our President.

Before we jump the gun and assume that Obama and the Rats are solely responsible for the IRS' actions, we should ask "Who hates the Tea Party, et al, more? The Rats or the GOP establishment?"

A case could be made that the GOP establishment had more to gain from blocking the grassroots movement than Obama and the Rats would gain.

It would not surprise me if we found GOP unclean hands somewhere in this IRS mess.

After all, the IRS Commissioner who kicked it all off was a Bush appointee. Surely, the GOP has infiltrated the IRS over the years so that it could use the incompetence of the IRS to its political advantage.

Wasn't the GOP (Nixon) the first to be caught with it's hand in the cookie jar?

We'll learn a lot from how vigorously the GOP congress-critters pursue this IRS mess. It wouldn't surprise me if the IRS scandal goes away much faster than any of us would like.

Right. Why would it surprise anyone on FR that the Rove White House would want to persecute actual conservatives? No doubt IRS stooges would be happy to cooperate, bipartisanship and all, ya know.

And why didn’t it come out until now? Perhaps if a global news organization like NBC had pursued stronger investigative journalism it may have. If they had showed the same zeal and vigor before the election the way they tore apart the lives of SRah Palin and Joe the Plumber.

But of course, that may have damaged their lord and savior’s chance at reelection. They would - and have done - anything to prevent that up to and including shredding any journalistic ethics they had left.

She’s still scum. This revelation moment changes nothing because in 2016, she’ll be just as willfully blind. Believing otherwise is folly.

So why are they doing it now with Benghazi heating up? Perhaps they are trying to dilute Benghazi with other scandals. This would only work with a Democrat.

I knew this for a long, long time now that it was STOLEN.

As I have warned another poster on the Rush thread, with the TP movement having been a pressure release valve, to resolve it peacefully, the reality of a possible future violent revolt down the road has gone up more likely down the road.

Isn’t it odd the IRS apologized to begin with? Call me cynical, but what if this IRS thing really isn’t a scandal? That perhaps the ‘right-wingers’ are just being set up to appear to be on a witch hunt to diffuse the Benghazi situation? If no wrong doing is found with the IRS processing of groups, then right-wingers would lose their credibility. This would be the Marxists way of getting out of Benghazi.

He cannot be taken down because he was legally prepared for these scandals ahead of time and he will not resign because he’s too arrogant. We’re stuck with him until the end of his term. JMHO.

——— they just start attacking the ones who report it.-——

There is too much beating around the bush here. To resolve the issue now that the IRS is out of the picture, there will be physical threats, violence, death.

To put it to rest there must be massive death in the Chicago thuggery.

After all the deaths, history will sort it all out over the next hundred years.
