Corrupt AG's Feigned Outrage Shouldn't Be Distraction ^ | 4/10/2014 | IBD Editorial

Posted on 04/11/2014 5:46:50 AM PDT by rktman

Lawlessness: Attorney General Eric Holder's new tactic is to feign outrage at congressional Republicans demanding accountability from him. In fact, he and his lawbreaking administration have had it easy.

Radicals must remember "that the target is always trying to shift responsibility to get out of being the target," far-left strategist Saul Alinsky advised in attacking one's enemies.

The launch of a nasty attack on Republicans by Eric Holder comes just as House Government Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and other House Republicans have been zeroing in on the Obama administration in their congressional investigations of corruption. Obama and Holder don't like being targets.

Waaaaa. They're picking on me just because I did some illegal things and I'm the top LEO in the entire country. They're a bunch of racis' bigots just pickin' on some poor black guy just tryin' to do his job. Spare us eric. You and the lyin' king have to get some credit though. You guys really believe you're right. Lucky for you that there's enough low/no info didiots out there that neither one of you will ever see the inside of a prison cell for a very long time. "You don't want to go there 'buddy'". What an arrogant pos.

Holder's got his panties in a wad-------he gets so upset at every "little thing."

Holder's still miffed WRT a testy exchange at a House Judiciary Committee hearing w/ Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas.

Holder seemed to take umbrage at the mention of "asparagus."

Holder was understandably upset---he thought the committee was talking about his penis.

Or as his wife refers to it --- the "asparagus tip."

From now on I’ll be referring to the current AG as “Erica Holder”.

Keep the heat on him 24-7 and he WILL break. He has shown that he is vulnerable to criticism and doesn’t like it. GET AFTER HIM NOW!

Holder's ignoring IRS corruption is going to hurt him bigtime.

ALL OF THIS THIS NEEDS TO GO VIRAL One of the Articles of Impeachment drawn up against Richard Nixon was merely "threatening" to use the Internal Revenue Service to selectively audit political opponents.

OBAMA HAS WEAPONIZED THE IRS AGAINST POLITICAL OPPONENTS ordering multiple covert campaigns of intimidation, threats, and persecution of tea party/conservative organizations, and those daring to criticize Obama's agenda.

<><> Seven lock-stepping Democrats scared-***tless of losing their seats ask the IRS to “Investigate” political opponents,

<><> Rep Elijah Cummings led the Democrat pack in smearing True the Vote patriot Catherine Englebrecht....

<><> der leader Obama said Tea Parties were a "threat to democracy."

<><> The IRS (a tax-funded L/E agency) takes its marching orders from Democrat;

<><> the FBI, ATF, the IRS, and OSHA were sicced on Catherine Englebrecht, as she valiantly tried to improve the US voting system.


DEMS STOOP TO CONQUEUR--order IRS to act to save their seats
by Alexander Bolton, The Hill, 2/13/14

Senate Democrats facing tough elections this year want the IRS to play a more aggressive role in regulating outside groups expected to spend millions of dollars on their races. In the wake of the IRS targeting scandal, the Democrats are publicly prodding the agency instead of lobbying them directly.

Dems are also careful to say the IRS should treat conservative and liberal groups equally, but they’re concerned about an impending tidal wave of attack ads funded by GOP-allied organizations. Much of the funding for those groups is secret, in contrast to the donations lawmakers collect, which must be reported publicly.

One of the most powerful groups is Americans for Prosperity, funded by the billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch. It has already spent close to $30 million on ads attacking Democrats this election cycle.

“If they’re claiming the tax relief, the tax benefit to be a nonprofit for social relief or social justice, then that’s what they should be doing,” said Sen. Mark Begich (D), who faces a competitive race in Alaska. “If it’s to give them cover so they can do political activity, that’s abusing the tax code. And either side."

Asked if the IRS should play a more active role policing political advocacy by groups that claim to be focused on social welfare, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) responded, “Absolutely. Both on the left and the right,” she said. “As taxpayers, we should not be providing a write-off to groups to do political activity, and that’s exactly what we’re doing.”

Shaheen called the glut of political spending by self-described social welfare groups that qualify under section 501(c) (4) of the tax code “outrageous.” Shaheen is in a good position now but could find herself embroiled in a tight campaign if former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass) challenges her.

Sen. Mark Pryor (Ark.), the most vulnerable Democratic incumbent, said the IRS has jurisdiction over 501(c)(4) groups, as well as charities, which fall under section 5/01(c)(3) of the tax code and sometimes engage in quasi-political activity.

“That whole 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4) [issue], those are IRS numbers. It is inherently an internal revenue matter,” he said. “There are two things you don’t want in political money, in the fundraising world and expenditure world. You don’t want secret money, and you don’t want unlimited money, and that’s what we have now.” --SNIP--

What struck me as unconscionable was that there is Eric Holder standing in front of a back drop that says,
"No Justice No Peace"
And all the while he is decrying divisiveness.

Not to worry, O’bummer will grant him amnesty prior to O’bummer’s leaving office for every past, present, future, and imagined crime that Erica ever did or contemplated. A for real ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card if there ever was one. As a matter of fact he will probably attempt to pardon his whole administration.

Targeting conservatives to impair their voting impact is one Lerner scam......but she also signed off on bogus 501s (that serve to shuttle stimulus monies and/or other govt monies into secondary accounts).

She fast-tracked the Obama "foundation"----that are known money laundering and tax evasion scams. The biggest scam is one foundation writing a check to another foundation---the MO to skim off and launder tax-free monies into offshore accounts.

Other n/p scams include fake accounting entries for "building improvements," PR, legal fees, accounting fees and the like. Plus putting fake employees on the payroll.

NEW YORK – Malik, Pres Obama’s half-brother in Kenya could cause the White House more headaches over new evidence (1) linking Malik to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and, (2) establishing a controversial tax-exempt fast-tracked by then-IRS supervisor Lois Lerner.

Malik Obama’s duties as overseer of the Muslim Brotherhood’s international investments is one reason for the Obama administration’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood, according to an Egyptian report citing the vice president of the Supreme Constitutional Court of Egypt... Read more at (Excerpt) Read more at .....

The Malik Obama IRS filing exposes that Lois Lerner used govt offices to apparently aid and abet money laundering and tax evasion----and that, most egregiously, Lerner used govt offices to grant an alien resident, with documented ties to terrorist organizations---tax-exempt privileges that she denied to authentic Americans (based solely on the spurious fact that Americans run conservative organizations which are disliked by president Obama).

The alien resident,-Malik, who resides in Kenya---was granted Tax-exempt statust via a falsified 501 (c) (3) application. Malik Obama's workplace is located in the Sudan-- on file & listed on his own website.

Apparently the alien resident was granted tax exempt license as the modus operandi to collect US taxpayers dollars & funnel them overseas......also troubling are the alien's joint overseas investments.

NOTE WELL: When he went to jail, investigators found Ponzi King Bernie Madoff had stashed billions offshore---into a labyrinth of financial entities. Some $8.9 billion was funneled to Madoff through a dozen so-called feeder funds based in Europe, the Caribbean and Central America......a labyrinth of hedge funds, management companies and service providers.

To unsuspecting outsiders, it seemed to compose a formidable system of checks and balances. But the purpose of this complex architecture was just the opposite: the feeder funds provided different modes for directing money to Madoff, and other entities, in order to avoid scrutiny.


Muslim money-laundering modalities finance global jihad. (EXCERPT)---the American Freedom Law Center, has been engaged in a long and drawn out lawsuit againstHamas front group, CAIR. Hamas-CAIR has been running a global criminal money laundering operation out of Washington, DC. "The money laundering scheme was discovered in the course of legal discovery in unrelated federal litigation arising out of allegations by five of CAIR's former clients that CAIR defrauded them by failing to provide the legal services they had been promised."

THE MODUS OPERANDI To avoid reporting these millions of dollars from the dubious Islamist sources and to avoid registering as an agent for a foreign sovereign as required by federal law, CAIR created a separate company called CAIR-Foundation, Inc---an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

CAIR itself quit filing any federal tax returns from 2008-2010 and allowed the IRS to withdraw its status as a 501(c)(4), converting itself to a regular for-profit corporation. CAIR also stopped all of its operations and became simply a holding company, transferring, at least on the books, all of its employees and equipment to CAIR Foundation. --snip--
