Please just be patient with the Committees doing their investigations. They will get to the shark at the top of the food chain if the evidence leads directly there.


We are battling marxist propgandists in the MSM and Dem party. Facts matter little if they are buried in a pile of dog you know what.

We need a clear message in twitter size bites from the GOP about IRS/Benghazi/NSA/Etc. on a weekly basis and we are not getting that from the Tan Man. We get the occasional hit and run sound bite and little more. That’s not how you beat these goose stepping bastards who are fighting tooth and nail to win.

Come on...folks....anyone with half a brain knows this whole sham came directly from Obama’s mouth!!! Cummings can rant all he wants trying to protect Obama, but the truth is the truth, Obama did all he could, illegally to steal the 2012 election. However.....he probably would have won anyway because Mitt Romney was such a weak sister candidate!!! However...that still does not change the fact that Obama and all his criminal ilk at IRS violated the federal law and the freedom of American people by the millions!!!

Cummings has a full basket of red herrings today.


Dems have a game plan. They stick to it. Until Issa and Boehner smack them down they will continue dissembling, distracting, delaying, etc. Imagine McConnell trying this stuff on Reid! Reid would light a rocket on them immediately.

Please read full sentences... I specifically said Impeached and CONVICTED.

Impeachment occurs in the House. Conviction for a crime and subsequent removal from Office comes from the Senate.

Carter Hull - 48 year IRS employee.....lawyer at the exempt office? and Liz Hofacre will be testifying.

Liz claims she was assigned to Tea Party exempt applications in April 2010. She said she was told to coordinate with Mr. Carter Hull. He gave draft letters to send to the applicants.

Said it was highly unusual process for the draft letter process - looked at it as micromanagement of the process.

Expressed concerns/frustrations and applied for transfer. Had 40-60 cases assigned to her when she left in October.

Carter Hull reads his opening statement. His understanding was the two TP applications were assigned to him as test cases( ithink)

Drafted documents after a time as recommendations for handling the TP applications.

Summer, 2011 - Lois Lerner told folks to refer to these aplications as “Advocacy” applications instead of Tea Party applications.

It sounds as tho Lerner’s testimony may not even be needed - so say goodbye to any immunity, Lois.

I hope you enjoyed your one minute of fame, pleading the Fifth in a congressional hearing. Perhaps you should have moved faster on that immunity request thingie.

Several times now Issa seemed on the cusp of bringing down the administration, only to see the issue evaporate. I back his efforts and wish him success, but am starting to wonder if he’s playing the role of Emmanuel Goldstein (the government-fabricated enemy of the state in “1984”).

Issa asks Hull about reasoning that groups would be lumped together and not have their status determined for up to 3 years -

Hull says no, he has no experience of this happening before.
