E-mails Suggest Collusion
Between FEC, IRS to
Target Conservative Groups

National Review Online, by Eliana Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/31/2013 6:07:16 AM

Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,

Nobody with an ounce of self respect would agree to take a position under Obama so his appointees are inherently corrupt.Of course they also know there´s no means of them being prosecuted with Holder as the ultimate roadblock.You can embarrass them in public which doesn´t mean much when they´re getting envelopes of cash.

This administration is so corrupt that we are getting "corruption exhaustion" which is exactly part of their evil plan. They know that scandal after scandal will eventually wear people down to the point that they are exhausted from it all. John Boehner needs to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate so instead of several committees vying for information, one centralized body with prosecutorial subpoena power can make some progress in a timely matter. Get someone independent, fair and who will not let go when he finds wrongdoing. There is ample evidence that this administration Has willfully descriminated against its political opposiiton. Letting this country be destroyed by Obama and his fellow travelers is a terrible legacy for a Speaker of the House. Are you listening, John Boehner? Quit playing the beltway game and start trying to save the Republic.

If anyone is looking for the hammer to break this thing wide open, there it is in the middle of this article. Lois "loser" Lerner and the FEC is not exempted from 26 USC 6103 regarding disclosure of tax information. It is a felony to do so without a court order. In the hands of a real prosecutor it would be a race to the courthouse by Lois et al to cut deals and talk.
I would wager that such criminal behavior was routine for these clowns

Don´t let your concerns over Lois Lerner keep you from looking at her big boss during that period ~ the guy up the line as Treasury Secretary Tim Geitner.

We were introduced to Tim at his confirmation hearing where it was revealed that he had been a TAX CHEAT!

It has not gotten better at the top in Treasury.

Obama is unable to attract talent ~ but he is able to attract thieves and other criminals.

I think Tim could be made to talk ~

I am about to give up on our members in the GOP too. They cant seem to get beyond hearings to deaf mutes.

OK, people, pay attention to the dates and the source of the complaints. This was during the 2008 election, while Obama was running for president and his campaign people and the Dems were manipulating every government entity possible to win the election. The complaint to the FEC was by the Democrat-Farmer-Labor Party out of Minnesota where Al Franken was busy stealing the election there from Norm Coleman. It is a now-sitting US Senator, not just Barack Obama, who is tied to this facist-like use of the IRS and Gestapo Girl Lois Lerner.

The Dems, and Obama´s campaign staff in particular, were directing the filing of lawsuits / FEC complaints / IRS complaints. The Obama´s campaign General Cousel Bob Baurer directed the complaint against The American Issues Project. Note that The American Issues Project is one of the organizations that the FEC lawyer asked Lois Lerner about, according to this article.

Recall that Bob Baurer was also the one who was directing / following the Citizens United case that got Obama got all excited about and after he was elected president made an unprecedented show of anger during a SOTU speech against the Supreme Court justices.

Apparently the Obama administration determined that Lois Lerner, after her tenure at the FEC, was qualified to work at IRS. She has done her magic just like Douglas Shulman and the Obama administration wanted her to do.

1. Media morons also have been assuming that the liberal groups on a [rather small, short] list were "targeted." Oh? Not for IRS colonoscopies, I suspect, as is being assumed, but for "sspecial, expedited handling." Like Stinky´s half-brother´s organization, which got status granted in about 3 weeks [!]. It was back-dated, too. I wonder if that´s legal.

2. The House and Senate are and will remain useless against Obama´s depredation. Those legislative morons simply see him as another liberal politician. He is decidedly not. Whether it is malevolence, incompetence, "fundamental transformation" ideology, puppet-master string-pulling, or what-have-you, Obama has hurt the country and the people terribly. Terribly. He therefore must be opposed at every turn, with every tool, for every inch.

3. Forget Special Counsels, Committee hearings, and the rest of business-as-usual. a. Nothing will come of it [we´re a few weeks short of a year after Benghazi; nothing has resulted from all measures to investigate the events]. b. Because of the [gutless] business-as-usual approach, Obama sets the timeline. Guess when he wants his people to be answering questions on all those "phony scandals"?

No, conventional politics just reinforce the problem. And reinforce the need to dump Boehner, Graham, McConnell, McCain, and the rest. I want people -- patriots -- elected who truly understand how bad it is. People with fire in their hearts, blood in their eyes, and steel in their spines!

#33 ~ regarding your question on the date, typically in almost any gub´mnt nonprofit evaluation (IRS ain´t the only bunch into this) the organization was qualified as of the time it came into existence, or at least as of the day it applied ~ which means, in the case of IRS, that taxes that might have been due for a certain period really weren´t because the organization was actually qualified for tax exempt status.

Sounds weird, right? It´s not. Else, IRS would be collecting taxes on money that wasn´t taxable income, nor subject to any other sort of tax, for the period in question. The law doesn´t allow IRS to collect taxes which were not due.

The post office does something similar with Periodicals Class ~ but not Special Rate standard. However, if a postage payment in a certain amount was not owed at the time of mailing, a refund is available on almost every class of mail ~ this follows the same principle that the USPS cannot collect postage that isn´t due.

They are able to do that for periodicals because there´s a YEAR END audit and verification where deficiencies or overpayments can be adjusted.

All tentacles to all scandals lead to the White House. To obama for illegally obtaining and accepting the position of commander in chief and to Valerie Jarrett for telling him what to do. Also Holder for not enforcing a whole bunch of laws. They all need to share a cell so they can be with "their people." Obama can still spend his days playing hoops but a golf course may be hard to find.

#22, that was racist.

Mitt Romney should be sitting in the White House right now.

The Clintons´ ´conspiracy commerce´ memo
Politico, by Hadas Gold    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/19/2014 4:31:20 AM     Post Reply
The famous Clinton White House document known as "the conspiracy commerce memo" has finally surfaced. The memo, which details how right-wing conspiracy theories made their way into the mainstream press, was written in 1995 and first acknowledged by the White House in 1997. The idea of a “conspiracy” was also famously referred to by Hillary Clinton in 1998, when she cited a “vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he ran for president.” The memo, part of the latest trove of documents released by the Clinton Presidential Library on Friday, outlines “the communication stream of conspiracy

MOKPO, South Korea -- A prosecutor says that the third mate steering a South Korean ferry at the time of a major accident was navigating those waters for the first time. Senior prosecutor Yang Jung-jin told reporters that the 25-year-old mate was steering the ship as it passed through an area with lots of islands clustered close together and fast currents. The ferry sank Wednesday. More than 270 people are still missing. Yang says that another mate usually took controls through the area. But because heavy fog caused a departure delay, the third mate was steering the ship through the waters. Yang says

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Shortly after the Supreme Court’s decision on Obamacare, the CBO projected that 9 million people would buy Obamacare-compliant insurance through newly established government-run exchanges. Now, after an enrollment period that his administration expanded by about two months—to more than half a year—President Obama says that 8 million people have “signed up” for (but in many cases haven’t actually bought) insurance through those exchanges. The Obama administration’s stated goal was to have 39 percent of those who bought such insurance be between the ages of 18 and 34. Now Obama says the actual percentage is 28 percent. Only in Washington, D.C. could someone

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?

House Democrats, battered by Koch brothers ads and facing a grim outlook for the midterms, are providing the clearest indication yet of how they plan to respond: By shoring up imperiled incumbents and only the most promising challengers, but most likely leaving some of the party’s upstart hopefuls to fend for themselves. The strategy, detailed in nearly two dozen interviews with party officials and strategists, is a tacit acknowledgement of the ominous political environment Democrats are up against this year. The goal is to stop Republicans from padding their 17-seat edge and keep the party within striking distance of the majority

Washington – The National Republican Senatorial Committee, a group tasked with getting Republicans elected to the Senate, believes Republicans have expanded the 2014 playing field with five more contested races as the GOP seeks to retake control of the chamber.

That´s in addition to nearly 10 Senate seats the NRSC has been aggressively targeting.

The captain of a South Korean ferry that sank off the southwest coast of South Korea this week with hundreds of high school students aboard was arrested early Saturday along with two crewmembers, the Yonhap news agency reports. The captain, 68-year-old Lee Joon-seok, was jailed on five counts of charges including negligence of duty and violation of maritime law, Yonhap reports. The exact charges filed against the two crewmembers, who were allegedly operating the ship alone at the time of the accident, were not immediately available.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
