GOP-e or the Country Club Republicans as I call them, are OK with the Rats coming after the Tea Party. Pure and simple.

Like Trey Gowdy said when the miscreants of “Fast and Furious” pointed to Bush’s “Wide Receiver” as a predecessor: “Bring ‘em all in! Let’s hear all the facts.”

The establishment Republicans, while blowing a lot of smoke on the issue to raise money, would like nothing better than to see the demise of the Tea Party and other organizations that question the total disregard for the U.S. Constitution and Government in Washington regardless of which party.

The IRS scandal is a much more straight forward and obvious abuse of power, why is it not the main focus?

These long time politicians are in such box, they blackmail themselves, due to their corruption the Constitution has become their enemy.

Term Limits!

What good is an oath to the Constitution when there is no prosecution.

Exactly right. Its the old “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” thing. The GOP-e detests and fears the latter because it exposes the GOP’s fake conservatism. The GOP wants big government every bit as much as their pals in the Democrat Party. The Tea Party threatens the GOP’s comfortable and self-serving support for the status quo.

Am reminded this a.m. of beware of talking or in this case typing but my first recollection is of Nixon utilizing the irs for, let me say, specific purposes. We know where the media took that information. Yet today is allowed and called not a 'smidgen' of corruption and applauded. Is easy to figure out why. How many want to hide themselves from what they know to be the all powerful irs and the system that seeks not the truth but retribution if the thought line is not adhered to?

I think most of them are every bit as crooked as the Dems. It’s a racket. Maybe we could get Ted Cruz to file a RICO case on the whole lot of them.

I know people who have worked inside several organs of the GOP. Let’s just say its far from what it claims to be. Not that that’s any big surprise to anyone, but I can assure you that there are deeply intrenched interests that have no intention of promoting or upholding conservative principles. Its all a big show.

Around here the GOPe is every bit the straw man that Obama is known for creating

While some may, It is silly to think all “moderates” hate the Tea Party

The reason things don’t happen the way you think they should ( such as a bigger investigation of the IRS scandal) is because the political will is simply not there yet.
In this political climate the main headwind is the media

And these guys have to figure out what will work and what wont in terms of the media, and the perceptions of the voters

If the media was pushing the IRS scandal, more politicians (and remember that is what they all are) would jump on the boat and sail in that direction.

Google the Barrett Report.

From Wikipedia: The Barrett Report is a 400 page report created by special prosecutor David Barrett. Initially tasked with investigating allegations of lying to the FBI against Henry Cisneros, Secretary of the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development under U.S. President Bill Clinton, the investigation eventually delved into allegations that President Clinton had used the U.S. Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Service as political tools against American citizens.[1] Before the release of the report, three Democrat U.S. Senators, John Kerry, Dick Durbin and Byron Dorgan, forced the redaction of certain pages by attaching a rider to an unrelated appropriations bill.[2]

If I remember correctly, a three judge panel oversaw this special prosecutor and his report. It was determined that any member of Congress could have this report released by simply having it read into the Congressional Record (CR).

Initially Charles Grassley promised Tony Snow that if the report was not released by the three judge panel, he would have it read into the CR. He slowly backed away from his promise to Snow and NO OTHER REPUBLICAN MEMBER OF CONGRESS HAS STEPPED FORWARD TO AFFECT THE RELEASE.

What does this tell us? The Republicans are knee deep in this as well.

One other thought. Before Nixon was LBJ and JFK. There is NO doubt enemies (considered) domestic were targeted by the irs and other agencies within those administration but little to nothing was said in the media. There are documented cases where targeting was done within the LBJ and JFK administrations also targeting private citizens that were exercising the right of Free Speech. Before LBJ and JFK was General Eisenhower. Did he too target his enemies? I do not know but remember back to JFK.

I know, my husbands aunt was pretty far up in the Minnesota Republican party. She does not get it either. To her we are nuts.

A thought on your tag-line which reads Well now what? Maybe each and everyone of us is ignorant just as our so-called representative, senators, president and his minions, plus a nearing majority of the supreme court believe, and none of us will be able to come up with any semblance of a plan to stop them ... maybe. I still want to believe America is savable from this scourge though so will throw out the normally stated sentence at this point and type ... Any ideas? I am fresh out of ideas except for voting and I too say that is not working out as well as I had and have prayed for.

Voting don't do any good. The rats just steal the votes they need and the dirty tricks apparatchiks of the GOP-e just keep digging until they can find something to embarrass a Tea Party candidate.

Look what they let happen to Sarah?

Just keeping my powder dry. If history has taught us anything, the left always goes to far. I am not sure what exactly is going to start the revolution or how long it will take, but it's coming.

Sadly this a.m. I agree. Powder dry, at this local, too. Saddens me in the extreme for I want to be positive regarding our situation and believe there is a chance to hold onto our Republic without a fight but my prayers seem to be falling on God and Jesus’s ears yet no help comes, so will await the liberals to begin their shooting or lawlessness via abolishing our Constitution. Expect it will not be long before their next move and the liberals do move in increments attempting to go unnoticed but anticipate the liberals and their media will soon make a mistake. A mistake so enormous all America may withdrawn in the tens of millions if not hundreds of millions. Good Luck to all of us, defconw. Good Luck.

USNV, we have a “target-rich” environment at the moment, with the mid-term elections looming. Just maybe the VA scandal will catch fire because it directly affects millions of vets. Just watched that retired female SSGT. on FNC, she was ripping Shitstiki a new Ahole! If there is that level of passion to get to the bottom of that scandal, it may well be the lede that’s needed to bring action on the rest of the myriad of FUBO’s current scandals.
