Not News: IRS Has Only Provided 0.02% of Documents Requested by House

The establishment press's general refusal to cover clearly newsworthy developments in the Obama administration scandal involving the targeting of conservative, tea party, prolife and other groups by the Internal Revenue Service has been so negligent and blatant that several leading conservatives, including the MRC's Brent Bozell and talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh, called it out in an open letter earlier this week.

Consistent with the rest of their colleagues, the Associated Press, aka the Administration's Press, appears to have had no substantive story on the scandal since July 18 -- and that one was about primarily Democrats beating the false meme that progressive groups were supposedly targeted similarly. The AP's negligence extends to the tax agency's shocking level of non-cooperation with House Ways & Means Committee investigators, as will be seen after the jump.

Yesterday, committee Chairman Dave Camp issued a press release, coming within inches of directly accusing the agency of obstruction of justice .

Apparently, this is what a “Phony” scandal looks like.

But you know they’re the most important 0.02% of the docs so it’s all A-OK.

Provide the IRS with .02% of authorized funding. Better yet, abolish it.

That whole Legislative Branch just isn’t relevant any longer.

No it's NOT news.. Team 0bama has obstructed justice numerous times, including Fast & Furious where numerous document requests have STILL not been fulfilled by Eric WithHolder. And much of what IS provided is heavily redacted.

Fines, lots of fines. And interest, lost of interest. Call the CID.

That’s a question for the ages, isn’t it? Why is there no opposition party? What are they all afraid of? Why won’t they perform their Constitutional duties?

Because they ARE pu$$ies !

It only takes ONE thing. One thing, for the Right to focus on, like a laser, to take this administration down. They need to utilize the tactics of the Left to do this. Keep hammering away at that One Thing, no matter how minor, no matter how trivial. Relentlessly, day-after-day.
This is how the Left works. And, it works.

But, of course, they need an outlet for this. They can’t use the media, unfortunately.

Hell

Hand-basket...

If the costs of the IRS not complying with the Legislative Branch are ZERO, then WHY HAVE A LEGISLATIVE BRANCH..?

Why not instead opt for progress by REMOVING the simulacrum of Democracy that we’re deluding ourselves with..?

Why not make the ACTUAL REALITY clear by just having a DICTATORSHIP...?

If you were pulled over for speeding and later NEVER HAD TO PAY, how much speeding might we eventually see...? Would we see less speeding, the same incidence of speeding, or MORE speeding...?

I do not understand why our guys vote Republican or even WHY we have a Congress. I don’t get it.

We should also change that song that finishes, “home of the free”. The words should be HONEST.

I guess it is a phony scandal otherwise Congress would defund the IRS immediately.

Obama is kind of calling it right on this one - he knows the republicans won't do a darn thing about it- they're all just wasting our time.

“Camp issued a press release, coming within inches of directly accusing the agency “

Oh woo! I’ll bet they’re scared! “Within an inch?” Sheesh!

I think Benghazi should be focused on.. The degree to which Team 0bama doesn’t want people getting to the truth is a huge red flag that something VERY shocking was going on that night.. The staged kidnapping of Stevens for a Blind Sheik trade was once a crazy conspiracy theory, but this story combined with the downing of the SEALs helicopter reveals a pattern that sends chills to the bone.

The dumbazz GOP delaying investigation to discredit Dems before the election only serves to BACKFIRE ON THEM when the Dems accuse them of party politics before an election..

We want more hearings NOW, not MONTHS FROM NOW. Let the chips fall where they may.

To rephrase that so that the mathphobic can understand it...Just pick a number, and multiply by 0.0002.

Say Congress asked for 10,000 (ten thousand) documents; The IRS has provided 2 (two).

That movie has many ‘interesting’ quotes.

And all true.

I guess they have the Hildabeast doing the searching for documents. After all she did such a bang up job finding the documents from the Rose Law Firm.
