Exclusive: Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s Staff Threatens Taxpayer For Asking About
pjmedia.com ^ | july 31, 2014 | dwayne horner

That was startling. I asked to speak to someone in the office to register my thoughts on a congresswoman lying on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. From there, it got crazy but not as crazy, and then a little crazier.

I was transferred to a gentleman on Lee’s staff. When I again asked him about the contradiction and stated that perhaps I was confused, the man said “Oh look it here, we have one of those right wing, tea-bagger nut jobs on the phone taking his cues from FOX News.”

He then accused me of being un-American, raising his voice at me while asking me to calm down, and telling me that I am just on some mission to destroy our country. When I calmly asked for his name, he said “I don’t have to give it to you because I don’t want to show up on some right wing blog and be on your Twitter account.” Keep in mind, I never said who I was – he just made assumptions and attacked me. When I reminded him that he gets paid by our tax dollars, he said “I doubt you even pay taxes and the IRS will find you soon enough,” and hung up on me.

This is the same Sheila Jackson Lee who insists on being driven to the House in a chauffeured SUV - ACROSS THE STREET. And to compound her arrogance, she insists that the driver keep the car and the A/C (or heater)running.

Madame DeFarge is knitting.

By that I assume he meant that you did not place the American flag on Mars.

Considering the kind of office environment she creates through viscous abuse of her own staff, not surprising that her staff does the same thing to others.

Must read article on the inner workings of Jackson-Lee's office.

My favorite comment after the post:

It could have been worse. Mr. Chief Counsel might have said, “Stop being mad all the time. Stop just hating all the time. Come on.”

“What else would you expect from Sheila Jackson Lee’s Staff”

At least they didn’t get reported to the local sheriff ... (or maybe they did and do not know it).

raising his voice at me while asking me to calm down,
_________________________________________

Its a ploy..

if you are on the phone the other person can say “you don’t have to shout, calm down, etc” for the benefit of whoever is on their end listening to that end of the conversation...

even though you are talking quietly and reasonably..

its just to upset you and make you say something or in a loud tone..

She’s also the one who went off on flight attendants because they didn’t bump her cheap ticket to VIP status. The she screamed, “Don’t you know who I am?!?” They offered to give her the whole row to herself but that wasn’t good enough.

And she’s the one who whined that Texas didn’t have any black universities about the time her son was ready to go off to college. Never mind Texas has 5, with two practically outside her office window. Two have been around since the 1800s. Ya know, I’ve never heard anyone whining there are no white, hispanic or asian colleges.

Bludgeoning a taxpayer w/ the IRS is becoming a habit w/ these lib/progs. Obama has actually used the IRS as a weapon.....over and over again.

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

Conservatives are reduced to begging Holder's DOJ to investigate and prosecute.....and begging the IRS to play nice by releasing information implicating its own staff in wrongdoing and perhaps criminal violations.

We even saw seven vote-crazed Dumbocrat Senators (paranoid about losing their seats) demanding the IRS investigate conservative groups.

The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal to date involves:

•Hundreds of conservative groups targeted

•At least 5 pro-Israel groups

•Constitutional-named groups

•Groups that criticized Obama administration

•At least two pro-life groups

•An 83 year-old Nazi concentration camp survivor

•A 180 year-old Baptist paper

•A Texas voting-rights group

•A Hollywood conservative group targeted and harassed

•Conservative activists and businesses targeted

•At least one conservative Hispanic group

•continued targeting even after the IRS scandal was exposed

100% of the 501(c)(4) Groups Audited by IRS Were Conservative. There is NO EVIDENCE that a single liberal group went through the same scrutiny as conservative groups.”

NOTE: 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.

I got a similar response from a call to Louise Slaughter’s office a few years ago, when the ACA was being passed.

I voiced my opposition - and got a snotty female staff. Very rude. I suspect she was young and an intern.

This illustrates the time honored principle that you cannot engage a nut-job on their own turf or in a vacuum. One must always seek to expose the idiocy and directly defeat them. A recorded conversation would have helped. Of course, the enemy will deny that such a conversation ever took place.

This cretin clearly has something to hide.

<><>Multiple identities?

<><>Not a US citizen?

<><>Member of violent orgnizations advocating the overthrow of the US govt?

<><>Involved in voter fraud?

<><> Has a rap sheet?

<><> Falsified official govt records?

=============================================

CONTACT FBI TIPS PAGE WEB SITE---https://tips.fbi.gov

TAXPAYERS demand to know who SJL's staff is communicating with, and who, inside and outside the US govt, is directing their activities.

<><> demand all of Sheila Jackson Lee's staff be investigated.

<><> demand supboenas of all SJL's official filings, phone records, emails, snail mail copies, hard drives, bank accounts, checking accounts, credit cards, debit cards, wire transfers, social media contacts, and the like.

Dwayne Horner was just subjected to a most potent load of projection from a staffer of a Congresswoman who makes a habit of revealing herself often, which is what projection really is.

Not to worry. They’re just Democrats being Democrats.

“The time for talking with these people is over.”

Looks very much like a title for a ping list as well as a tagline.

Gerrymandered district, Democrat political machine and a voting populace kept so ignorant that it votes for whoever the machine tells it to vote for.

Funny enough, I don’t mind having her as member of Congress, for two reasons:

1) Every gerrymandered minority-majority district consolidates Democrat votes and creates between two and four GOP districts.

2) Her behavior makes both herself and the Dem Party the subject of ridicule. See Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals on the effectiveness of ridicule.
