It’s really time to stop asking that question. I’s time to stop being befuddled by the GOPe. The government is our enemy. The GOP is part of the government. There’s no reason to think that they’ll do anything other than what they’re doing. Individual members who are on our side will be put in place or replaced by the GOPe.

Unfortunately, thanks to the latest successful round of ‘pin the tail on whitey’ via the Zimmerman charade, impeachment won't happen. The feckless republitards won't even step in to put a hold on his bottomless vacation fund.

Actually I would consider it very, very significant if Lois Lerner were at that meeting.

The piece from Dick Morris linked in this article is really good too.

http://www.dickmorris.com/william-wilkins-the-g-gordon-liddy-of-the-irs-scandal/

“Well, even a coincidental meeting can result in an exchange of information.

NOTE: Here’s something of interest: When Dick worked in the Clinton White House, the Roosevelt Room was the only room where political activity could take place in the West Wing. We have no way of knowing of that is the case now.

These queries will undoubtedly be central to the next exciting episode of the Darrell Issa Show as the California Congressman seeks to penetrate the veil of deception and misdirection with which the Administration has cloaked the IRS scandal.

Before one could get to Nixon, one had to find G. Gordon Liddy and Chuck Colson behind the Watergate burglars. Before we can get to Obama, we needed to find William Wilkins. And now we might have the next G. Gordon Liddy.

Stay tuned.”

The White House did not respond to a request for a comment.

Oopsy.

Breaking news soon: "The President will be holding a press conference art 2:00pm today. It is expected he will be discussing his plans for reparations."

0bama supporters remind me of people who are okay with crime syndicate mob bosses because he is generou$ to the local neighborhood folks and nice to everyone. They know he’s a criminal, but yet they continue to protect him.

It’s interesting to contemplate what their “turning point” will be. How deep does the corruption have to be before they turn against him? I know many HAVE no turning point; i don’t mean them. I mean your co-worker, or that rabidly liberal family member, or a friend who is normally a sane, intelligent person. How deep into the dark abyss of failed nations will we be before they realize they are supporting the spawn of Stalin?

What was the IRS chief counsel doing in a meeting with the President of the United States? According to the Daily Caller and Dick Morris and verified by downloadable visitor logs, William Wilkins came to the White House on April 23, 2012 at 3:54 in the afternoon and departed shortly after 11 pm that evening. Assuming that Jay Carney doesn’t personally know three William Wilkins who would get seven hours of face time with Barack Obama, it appears that the man who at least knew of the targeting of Tea Party and other groups had an opportunity to brief the President — and take action afterward:

This is easily explained.

Easter had just occurred at the White House. Wilkins and Shulman were simply invited over to help send out thank you cards to the attendees of the White House Easter Egg Roll event.

Take it directly to the SCOTUS, then.. They ARE a COURT, aren’t they? And if one of the criminals is the DOJ, then that alone is justification enough to bypass the DOJ and on to the SCOTUS. Yeah, yeah I know.. SCOTUS are whores to King Zero, too. We’re screwed.

Who will be the John Dean of the Zero administration?

the problem with that is snitches in republican administrations are hailed as heroes by the media, but snitches in democratic administrations tend to have accidents or commit suicide.

Vladimir The Impaler,
Jesse Jackson,
Al Sharpton,
Michelle Obama,

I met a guy, hard core Democrat, told me he wants the most corrupt leader, as it shows he can be cut throat on his behalf.
