Lois Lerner's big mouth
American Thinker ^ | 07/11/2013 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 07/11/2013 8:01:10 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Lois Lerner is a nasty piece of work, and one aspect of her arrogance could well be her undoing. She enjoyed wielding her power so much that she boasted about it, and in doing so in a 2011 interview with Business Week, she conceded a point that could be used to prove criminal culpability. Patrick Frey, who writes Patterico's Pontifications, uncovered the incriminating crowing:

A reader sends a very interesting tidbit buried in a November 17, 2011 Businessweek.com article about the IRS and not-for-profit universities. The article is about the IRS making inquiries into "whether schools improperly claimed tax-exempt status for taxable businesses." At the end of the article is this fascinating quote:

Lois Lerner, the IRS's director of tax-exempt organizations who is overseeing the investigation, says many schools are rethinking how and what they report to the government. Receiving a thick questionnaire from the IRS, she says, is a "behavior changer."

Frey provides a timeline, noting the bragging took place months after the initiation of the targeting of conservatives and tea parties. Ed Morrissey explains the implication in the Fiscal Times:

The targeting of conservative groups by the tax-exempt unit Lerner ran also used the "thick questionnaire" tactic, which Lerner brags is a form of intimidation.  An entertaining timeline of the IRS targeting scandal compiled by Freedom Works, which supports and trains Tea Party activists and groups, shows Lerner found out about the targeting by June 27, 2011 at the latest, and had initiated an audit of the office and its "be on the lookout" (BOLO) list used for the targeting. 

That resulted in a broader BOLO being put into use, and five months later, Lerner is bragging about the "behavior changer" effect of IRS demands for extensive information.

“Lois Lerner is a nasty piece of work”

Yeah, she’s a piece of something alright but if anybody thinks obama is going to let her take a fall they have another thing coming.

Just imagine some guy getting drunk one night, then waking up in the morning with Nancy Pelosi, and Lois Lerner next to him.

Politicians love to brag. Their self esteem demands it. So they boast about all the things they are going to do. Believe them! They tell you out front how they are going to RULE over you. Why is it that we are too dumb to listen? Obama’s books, speeches etc. said right out front that he was a socialista and determined to transform America into a socialist workers hell hole. His appointees are doing the same.

Just another byproduct of the criminal permissiveness of a dysfunctional Congress. Bad people are not accountable.

She will never receive any punishment whatsoever - at least not in this lifetime. When she stands before the Judge of All, only He can say what are her just desserts...

No one could possibly get that drunk!

If this could occur - it would surely bring the onset of a bad case of bi-lateral “coyote syndrome”, causing the victim to chew both his arms off, rather than taking a chance at waking either of the beasts...

This is the FAULT of the US Congress
which, itself, is IMMUNE — as it is to ObamaCARE
and to the Law and SEC Rules, etc. etc.

THIS IS THE FAULT OF A PERMISSIVE,
always Whoring, always lying US Congress
which weaponized al Qaeda
EVEN after 911, and even after they
became crucifying cannibals.

COMMERCIAL LIENS:
A MOST POTENT WEAPON
http://www.buildfreedom.com/tl/comliens.shtml

Private Matter

The Commercial Affidavit Process places the full power of justice back in the hands of the common man. It cannot be overstated that the whole Commercial Affidavit Process is not dependent on the court system. It functions quite well on its own outside the current legal system.

It needs to be thoroughly understood that because it is driven by SWORN TRUTH, the Commercial Affidavit Process is outside the jurisdiction of any equity court. It is a private contract matter. Should an attempt be made to involve an equity court it would result in a trespass against the Affiant’s rights: those interfering individuals, who were unlawfully involved, would themselves become one of the accused. An equity court has no jurisdiction whatsoever, for the CAP is strictly a non-judicial or pre-judicial process between individuals and is private.

This alone presents a very real dilemma for those who are accustomed to using the legal system to work wrongs and trespass against others with seeming impunity. They can’t hide behind a legal system that only dispenses justice to those who can afford to play the game. Those who are used to shielding themselves under “sovereign immunity” protections, hiding behind legions of attorneys and judges, and using other “legal tricks” now have none of this protection.

NO judge, court, law, or government can invalidate these commercial processes, i.e., an affidavit or complaint or a lien based thereon because no third party can invalidate someone’s affidavit of truth. A judge CANNOT interfere with, tamper with, or in any way modify testimony without disintegrating the truth-seeking process of his profession, destroying the very fabric of his own occupation and abrogating the First Amendment which was established to protect truth. For a judge to interfere with testimony is to commit professional suicide and to invite countless civil and criminal repercussions. ANYONE who tampers with testimony is a threat to the peace and security of society, violating its laws and acting as its enemy and is therefore justifiably subject to the appropriate penalties. The Commercial Affidavit Process is by its very nature private, and strictly between parties of interest, only. It is unequivocally non-judicial.

Very disturbing comments from the aging Miss Lerner.

remember what happened to William Wallace at the end of Braveheart - the same thing should happen to Miss Lerner and it should be carried live on ABC, CNN, FOX, CBS and NBC - primetime. That would certainly be a behavior changer.

If We The People, ever decide to exercise our supreme power over this unconstitutional government one of the first things which MUST be done is the complete elimination tax code being used for ANY “behavior changes” AKA social engineering.

Once we allowed government to go down the road of using the oppressive tool of taxation to be used for ANYTHING other than raising revenue for the Constitutional tasks required of the government.

No loop holes, no matter how much we like them is the only FAIR way to confiscate money from citizens.

It cannot be emphasized enough that can be no exceptions as once on that road we are right back to the code we have today which even democrat politicians seem to have great degree of difficulty following.

Add: 0bama let us know his contempt for the Constitution in 2003 in an interview with a Chicago-area NPR (of course!) station.

The standard proglodyte “charter of negative liberties” carp.

Well Lois, your actions sure have changed the minds of many Americans concerning the IRS. There is even talk from elected officials that your agency should be completely eliminated.

Patrick Frey made a great observation, it was nicely noticed and written about, and then you too noticed and posted here.

THANKS for noticing and posting.

This goes to the core of her coercive and illegal operating procedures, and should be used in prosecuting her and her supervisors.
