Is Lois Lerner cutting a deal?
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 9/25/2013 9:53:52 AM

The intriguing possibility that Lois Lerner might turn John Dean is on the table. Patrick Howley of The Daily Caller has tracked down what seems to be going on behind the scenes. IRS scandal figure Lois Lerner is negotiating through her lawyers with Rep. Darrell Issa´s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee about possibly gaining immunity to testify again in the committee´s investigative hearings.(snip)Because it appears she was less than truthful in her testimony, Lerner has a lot to lose. She just retired and now reportedly is getting paid $50 large a year until she dies as a parting gift

Lois Lerner´s decision to "retire" right before getting the ax was today reported on PAGE 15 of the revered Washington Post. They, and the Times et al. spend so much space bemoaning their lack of readers/subscribers/ad revenue because of the NET but a large problem for them all is that they are just not trustworthy. And are one of the reasons we have the President we have and that he was elected to a 2nd term. If they EVER reported the truth, or simply acted as non biased reporters (and this goes for the Brian Williams´ of this world as well) Obama probably would not have gotten in, as even the low info voters would have sensed that something was wrong with this picture!

No immunity! The only negotiating should be about the length of her sentence. After the first few days in prison, Ms. Lerner will be more than willing to offer what she knows in exchange for a few less years of misery!

Until we punish these vile people for their horrid and illegal behavior, there will never be justice. Lois Lerner lied under oath; she illegally targeted conservative groups in an effort to reelect 0bama; she used her position to control voters. and she needs to go to jail. She needs to be stripped of her huge pension benefit, and only then will people realize that they should not do these illegal things, because the price is too high. If we let her "slide" on this one, then our country is lost, because they will all know there is no punishment. Corzine is a perfect example; he robbed people and he never had to pay a price for his illegal activity.

Media will spin any info she provides as false. "She is only saying that to get a deal. Poor Obama."

Unless she has documents to back up her testimony, there is no point to immunity. If she has documents, they better give her a new identity or she won´t survive to testify.

Val Jar doesn´t like traitors and has no problem "punishing their enemies."

She needs to tell all, absolutely all. Either that or imprisonment for 10-20 years and fines that will leave her in debt until she dies.

If she talks, 2 years, fines that leave her broke, and NO GOV´T PENSION.

Point of fact, her pension probably exceeds 100K.

She worked for the federal govt for 34 years. That means she is covered under the old Civil Service retirement. Her annuity would be 64.25% of her highest three years.

Last I heard she was earning 177K. Assuming a high three of 170K, her pension is more like 109K.

It’s going to be an unsettling day for the Ruling Class in Washington, DC. One of the little tricks that keeps the Beltway media-special interest alliance prosperously spinning along has been exposed to the light of day by Washington Post blogger Eric Wemple. In a long piece devoted to Politico’s Mike Allen, Wemple chronicles the confluence of advertising and journalism via what a practice called “native advertising,” inserting material that looks like it could be an ordinary item written by a journalist, but which actually is paid advertising. Wemple describes native advertising as “the tricks that publishers deploy to elide

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A Soros-funded nonprofit New Yorker magazine called “one of the most important radical environmental groups in the country” has issued a statement denouncing the Bureau of Land Management‘s (BLM) decision to back away from a showdown with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and hundreds of supporters. A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today.

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms.

Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams. But when she joined the Marines, Santangelo found the playing field changed; she was segregated into female-only training units and as a woman, was relegated to less strenuous physical training than her male counterparts.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

Suppose a scientific conference on cancer prevention never addressed smoking, on the grounds that in a free society you can´t change private behavior, and anyway, maybe the statistical relationships between smoking and cancer are really caused by some other third variable. Wouldn´t some suspect that the scientists who raised these claims were driven by something—ideology, tobacco money—other than science? Yet in the current discussions about increased inequality, few researchers, fewer reporters, and no one in the executive branch of government directly addresses what seems to be the strongest statistical correlate of inequality in the United States: the rise of single-parent

In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance
