Uh Oh .. The IRS scandal is about to explode. Theres a paper trail that leads all the way to top levels in D.C.
Hat Tip Joseph Curl
So, light the fuse, already.
I agree. Light the fuse, let the chips fall where they may. Soon the Democrats will be shouting that we need to avoid a constitutional crisis. A constitutional crisis is exactly what this country needs to wake it from its collective stupor.
So they either knew and approved or are incompetent.
In either case they need to be shown the door.
Not one whistleblower. Take away their pensions & fire all of them.
I’m really not surprised at this.
I once knew a Retired NCO type that would print out a copy of every e-mail that he received that was “questionable” in ANY way. I asked him about that once and all he said was “experience” and that e-mails had been known to disappear before. Other than that he was one of the most closed-mouth men I have ever known.
When I first started working...way back in the 80’s, the old timers called that the “Pearl Harbor File”.
Curl is being played.
I hope this is true, but we’ve heard stuff like this before, even going back to Monica-gate.
I think they need to start indicting some of the lower level people who were involved in these applications, then they’ll start to sing.
Or they won’t and they can go to jail for their illegal acts.
We already know that Chuck the Schmuck Schumer and Franken were in on it., that’s pretty high up. Both should be removed from office, for using their office against their opponents. We truly need to get rid of those two a-holes.
If I remember correctly, doesn’t the “Chicago way” often end with jail time?
I think you could be right....Curl is being taken.
So long as that door has bars on it and remains locked for the next 25 years! The problem with all this is that there is no individual responsibility in this. It all gets blamed on the nebulous government position or entity. No one knows anything. That was from a bygone day or previous administrator or administration (can you say "Blame Bush"?). No one can get pinned down for responsibility, but they MUST!
The ones behind this need to be charged with TREASON and punished accordingly as an example to the rest of the RAT and ENEMIES OF THIS COUNTRY that these actions will not be tolerated by WE THE PEOPLE!!! Trust Betrayed needs to be punished in kind!
This is the death by 1000 cuts. Let’s get it over with.
The sooner it explodes, the sooner we can begin picking up the pieces, throw out the trash, and rebuilding our republic.
I wouldn’t put much expectation in an “explosion”; the American people think the only “real” explosion is the one that stops their checks in the mail.
People in NY and MN will fight us over their senators, and we will lose again. The opponents won’t fight.
Just ask Blogovich and Rezko. Maybe those first O scandals should be revisited.
Team Obama may have learned this strategy from Nixon. Here’s how it goes. Send a mole to contact a conservative reporter. Tell him you got some exclusive info and then delay feeding it to him so he looks like a Donald Trump circus clown, then you make him desperate for the documents so feed him bogus documents so when he exposes the story it appears that he didn’t do his homework and he looks like a fool when the Liberal MSM debunk his IRS story. I read about this strategy when I read Robert Novak’s autobiography and he described his painful relationship with Nixon.
This particular scandal involves SECURITY and LANGUAGE so it's not going to be as easy as you might imagine to find out who did what to who with which!
IRS, like the CIA, uses highly compartmentalized and isolated parallel management structures. You have difficulty finding whistleblowers under those conditions ~
He did that based on experience ~
Nature of the beast.
Which forces me to ask this question ~ why do you want to bring the investigations to a big screeching halt?
about to explode.
How many times have we heard this one...but sooner or later one of these boomers has to go off.
Time to invade Syria, or something.
:: when he exposes the story it appears that he didnt do his homework and he looks like a fool when the Liberal MSM debunk his IRS story. ::
That appears to be a circular argument. Currently, the MSM doesn’t do their homework, looking like fools they only repeat WH press releases. They aren’t interested in debunking themselves.
Lois Lerner Targeted Dick Durbin Senate Opponent (1996)
Nothing has been done in twenty years to clean house. DC just continues to grow in power. I don’t think this will make a difference.
The Democrats and government form a continuous cabal against liberty. How do you reform that? What coalition of voters will give a majority in Congress and the Presidency so that change can be wrought? GW Bush didn’t do it. He grew government.
The media will cover for the Clown.
National networks have leaders who have FAMILY members working directly for the Clown. And local news? Look at what happened to Larry Conners.
Miami Florida media, the most I personally see, is rife with Obama cultists.
The GOPe needs this story for 17 more months. “The Dems used Government to attack American citizens, and Dem’s unilatterialy passed Obamacare that now has the IRS attacking the mainstreet middle class.” Dem’s + IRS = Draconian Government that need’s an overhaul. I don’t look for this to “explode” any time soon, unless events simply overrun plans.
“WASHINGTON (AP) - Some of President Barack Obama’s political appointees, including the Cabinet secretary for the Health and Human Services Department, are using secret government email accounts “
“Change the to...Internal Revenge Service.”
Funny, or how about “Intimidation and Retribution Service”
or Irresponsible Review Service
Soon as they occupied the WH, the Chicago con artists
(a) took control of the US Census, and,
(b) Obama placed his COS Rahm Emanuel in control of the US Dept of the Treasury (the IRS).
MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THIS:
Obama said "Tea Parties were a threat to democracy."
Valerie Jarrett said they "would not forget" which Americans did not worship Obama.
At least 50+or- of the population will look beyond their checks to the concerts, ball games, casinos, movies etc. that those free checks will support.
Plouffe, White House Aides Target Issa
Monday, June 3, 2013 02:46 PM
By: Bill Hoffmann
House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa appeared to be getting under the skin of Democrats as they hit back hard — bringing up the congressman’s past from more than four decades ago.
Issa’s allegations about what the White House knew about the IRS targeting conservatives rattled Democrats into sending out a barrage of counter-claims.
Urgent: Is Obama Telling the Truth on IRS, Benghazi Scandals?
Former senior Obama aide David Plouffe ripped Issa in a Twitter message, referring to allegations from as far back as 1972, when Issa was still a teenager.
“The agent in the Cincinnati office, in which the targeting took place, told congressional investigators that he or she was told by a supervisor in March 2010 to search for Tea Party groups applying for tax-exempt status and that Washington, D.C., wanted some cases.
The agent said that by April the office had held up roughly 40 cases and at least seven were sent to Washington. The agent also said a second IRS employee asked for information on two other specific applicants in which Washington was interested.
When asked by congressional investigators about allegations and press reports about two agents in Cincinnati essentially being responsible for the targeting, the agent responded:
It’s impossible. As an agent we are controlled by many, many people. We have to submit many, many reports. So the chance of two agents being rogue and doing things like that could never happen. They were basically throwing us underneath the bus.
The administration has denied involvement in the scandal, repeatedly saying it was limited to the Cincinnati office.
There were directives and micromanagement and those appear to be leading to the home office in D.C. How high up the food chain they go there is still to be determined.
Names will be named. The lower level employees are seething about being blamed. Heads need to roll and illegality needs to be prosecuted. Until that is done, this scandal is not going to die.
There is a community organizing under the magic bus? Who knew?
Will never happen. The Corrupt Liberal Media will keep a lid on it.
Wish I was by a television today.
“When I first started working...way back in the 80s, the old timers called that the Pearl Harbor File.
I’m laughing at your post. At my age the 80’s seem like yesterday. I guess I’m one of your “old timers” grandpa’s.
There is no IRS scandal. There is IRS crime.
“...why do you want to bring the investigations to a big screeching halt?”
No, I don’t. But I don’t think any of the little fish are going to roll over on the big fish unless and until the pain of keeping silent is greater than the pain of speaking out.
Of course, I could be wrong and this is just getting started.
But it seems that many, many serious federal laws were BROKEN. It may be that the delays re: tea party, et al. tax exempt applications are legal even if improper, but releasing of donor’s names and other tax return info is definitely illegal.
I think likewise targeting someone for an audit for punitive reasons is also illegal.
But of course nothing will change, really, until the MSM starts changing the tune they sing.
I can only imagine that if Obama was a republican he would have been hounded out of office already.
Interesting. How did "Washington" become aware of these two specific applicants (out of the thousands that were submitted that year). What "information" did Washington seek? Have these applicants been identified to the public?
