I live in Los Angeles. Our San Fernando Tea Party coordinator will be testifying BEFORE CONGRESS along with 5 or 6 others at 10 AM Eastern to 10 AM Eastern. CSPAN DOES NOT HAVE ANY SCHEDULE SHOWING THEY WILL BROADCAST. Please hit "Contact Us" and ask them to do that!

The MSM helped the coup d’etat against the American people.

The ENTIRE MSM is culpable, and many were PAID OFF.

Tea Party folks TESTIFY JUNE 4th!

In front of whom and for what purpose?

Probably of no importance - just more GOP hot air.

Obama must have told C-Span not to cover the testimony.

I don’t think this has anything to do with CSPAN choosing not to broadcast the hearing. According to the report here, the House Ways and Means Committee (not Issa’s oversight committee) will conduct interviews “behind closed doors.”:

Amendment:

This article also indicates Issa’s committee is involved:

http://www.businessweek.com/news/2013-05-30/four-irs-employees-set-to-be-interviewed-in-congressional-probe

I’m not sure where the “breaking news” about Tea Party people testifying comes from since the link is just to the CSPAN video library, which is almost completely blank when I just followed the link.

OK, this article at the link here indicates that on Monday the Treasury IG, Russell George and acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel will testify before the House Appropriations committee, Tuesday targeted organizations will testify before the House Ways and Means committee, and on Thursday Issa’s committee will have a hearing that should probably be called the “Cupid Shuffle IRS Dance Routine” hearing:

http://news.yahoo.com/issa-says-washington-directed-irs-targeting-cincinnati-171609146—abc-news-politics.html

The dance routine video needs to go viral ASAP. The absolute ridiculousness might get the attention of some LIV’s and provide a way to open their eyes to the bigger picture.

Interviews usually take place in private, off camera. Testimony, which usually follows interviews, is the activity that CSPAN covers usually.

“Interviews usually take place in private, off camera. Testimony, which usually follows interviews, is the activity that CSPAN covers usually.”

I did not know that. That clarifies some things for me.

To me it looks like they are bit by bit boxing in certain parts of the “chain of command.” I don’t think Lerner (for one) has any wiggle room left. The limited transcripts released the other day has the look of an attempt to herd in some of the middle level people, most likely for pointing fingers up the chain.

It is a useful technique to interview people off-camera but on record and get the information needed to take testimony with the public given a clear view.

I did hear Rep. Gowdy saying they were taking lengthy depositions to prepare for hearings.

Those depositions or interviews make it possible for the testimony to be very focused, direct and to the point. Plus, like any good lawyer, you don’t end up asking a question in testimony that you don’t already know the answer to. As you note, makes the “boxing in” very efficient for the little time allotted to each member for questions.

“Plus, like any good lawyer, you don’t end up asking a question in testimony that you don’t already know the answer to.”

I’ve been hearing this for some time now, and that makes me all the more curious about Rep. Jordan questioning Shulman on the White House visits. It gives me the impression that Jordan knows whom Shulman meet with and what was discussed. Even the democrat Connolley referred to Jordan’s questioning and reminded Shulman that he was under oath. It would be surprising to me if Jordan was just fishing.

I hope those dance routines go viral as well. I’ve heard them all morning on our local Rush radio station with some woman screaming her “dance” instructions!

CSPAN emailed me. They agreed to cover Tuesday’s Testimony.

“You can view the House Ways and Means Committee Hearing with Organizations Targeted by IRS for their Personal Beliefs LIVE on c-span.org at 10:00 AM ET, June 4, 2013. It is not yet scheduled for broadcast on the C-SPAN television channels.

Thank you for your inquiry and interest in the C-SPAN networks.”

If you go to CSPAN and click the “Live TV/radio” at the top left tomorrow at 7 AM Pacific, it should come up -

CSPAN has been some of the best viewing in months!!!

But being in front of the committee will be nerve-wracking nonetheless. Take a deep breath, listen for the whole question, then blast with both barrels. Good luck to all of you. :-)

Representatives of conservative organizations that were targeted by the IRS are scheduled to appear Tuesday before the House Ways and Means committee.

So, are the Tea Party/conservative groups being interviewed or are they testifying?

I emailed Jeffery Lord at AmSpec to remind him of this scandal, since he was re-counting everything since the early days of the administration. I actually got a response & he said he was getting lots of tips. He wrote ‘The VanderSlooting of America’ (posted on FR). I’m looking forward to Part III!

I believe this is public testimony before the entire committee, not private interviews with the members.

Thanks for the link, but it does not work for me. I’ve tried two or three of the postings of it.

I’ve seen the live thread. I guess I’ll have to follow it that way.

Yes, same here.

And thanks Wisconsinlady. Nevertheless I’ve tried that one too and it does not work for me.

Maybe it is my browser and plug-ins being the problem. Also, I’m overseas, and maybe the IP gets blocked. I’ve had that happen a time or two.

Yesterday I watched the Werfel and George, Laurel and Hardy routine just fine at c-span, but today, zilch.

Okay...I found it! I simply went to www.c-span.org (main page) and clicked on the hearing...they have several listed. This one was on the top right. Hope this helps.

We demand to hear from the Treasury (IRS) people ordered around by Obama COS Rahm Emanuel (in a dual role as WH operator and Treasury head---see below).

Fax: (202) 226-1177

===============================================

TALKING POINTS The meticulously researched timelines posted allover FR are significant since they chronicle the times the Tea Party began heating up---holding massive rallies, and showing up at townhalls to protest Obamacare.

The arrogant, self-entitled Obamatons surely went ballistic. Does not take much imagination to know the WH con artists were thinking up demonic ways to stop the Tea Partiers who stood in their path.

SIGNIFICANT Remember that the Obamatons also took over the census. When Rahm Emanuel landed at Treasury, he had all the tools at his disposal to target individuals, tea parties, patriot groups, and so on.

=======================================

NOW HEAR THIS---CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND THE LOCAL MEDIA WITH THIS MESSAGE: All of the Treasury factotums doing Rahm's bidding need to be identified and brought before Congress to testify under oath. We need to know the specifics WRT Emanuel's activities at Treasury including dates and times when Emanuel consorted w/ the IRS.

===========================================

REFERENCE--WSJ REPORT--On Jan 20, 2009 Timothy Geithner was appointed Obama's Secy of the Treasury. But within three weeks, the obama White House tightened its grip on Treasury. Obama put his COS, Rahm Emanuel, in charge of Treasury---Rahm Emanuel's dual role was an unusual move.

When he got to Treasury, White House COS Rahm Emanuel was so involved in the inner workings of the Treasury that the phrase "Rahm wants it" had become an unofficial mantra among subservient govt staffers, prostrate in obeisance, scurrying to accede to Rahm's wishes, according to Treasury government officials. Reported by WSJ / 05/31/09

More here: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124113406528875137.html

=================================================

MOMENTS TO REMEMBER Obama was fond of saying "Tea Parties are a threat to democracy."

Valerie Jarrett ominously warned, they "would not forget" which Americans did not worship Obama.
