The ‘crime’ of the IRS
New York Post, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/14/2014 5:15:30 AM

Only days after we learned the Obama administration had appointed an Obama donor to head investigations into the IRS targeting of conservative organizations, we now have a leak from law enforcement saying the FBI doesn’t expect to file criminal charges. That’s the gist of a late-breaking story Monday evening in The Wall Street Journal. The story notes that though the investigation may go on another few months, unless other evidence is unearthed, the FBI conclusion will be that the IRS was a “mismanaged bureaucracy” enforcing rules “ it didn’t understand.” Without the evidence, we’re not in a position to say. But criminal

And thus, criminal abuse of the IRS by Democrats to harass Republicans becomes an accepted part of American life, none of the perpetrators are held to account, and the head overseer of the corruption (whether or not he was directly involved in criminal activity himself) carries on as the world´s greatest inspiration for Hope and Change.

There was a time when even petty Watergate burglars were pursued like hawks by a "free press" and the highest ranking officials, especially presidents, held accountable. No longer.

The difference, #1, is that Watergate was a Republican scandal.

Our entire system is broke and due primarily to one thing, corruption. There are so many corrupt people in office now (on both sides of the aisle) that the honest ones don´t have a chance. The corruption is so deep that the FBI takes months to even talk with the offended party and then announces what was decided at the beginning, that there was no wrong doing.

The IRS should be dismantled. Regulations and taxation has long passed the point of being out of control.

Allow Americans to file their income taxes on a postcard, as the quip goes, or at the very most, two double-spaced pages.

This Agency, along with the EPA and the NEA, have far too much unaccountable power and it should be stripped from them.

If it´s a pro communist like act, it´s okay.
But if it´s got ANTI communistic tendencies, it´s NOT okay!
The ill gotten cliche´ phrase, "BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE", ALWAYS, ALWAYS, refers to something that is destructive of our natural rights. "Both sides" means another advance for communist tyrannies.
"Both sides" means democrat commie and repub RINO !

Republicans will make bold, blustering comments and feign outrage for their "base", but then will keep quiet. After all, it´s the IRS that collects the funds for Big Government. And we all know (or should know by now) that DC Republicans are only interested in power, growing power, and keeping power.

What the heck kind of investigation begins with a pronouncement that it doesn´t expect to find criminal wrongdoing?! Answer: a crooked one that signals to all the crooked parties to chill out and not say anything to anybody off the record because the fix is in and no guilty party needs to worry about a thing.

#5 I completely agree with you that because of the depth of corruption, in all parts of the Federal government, our governing system is broken.

I, too, agree that the corruption is in both parties but to compare the Democratic corruption, on a equal footing, to the Republican corruption...I don´t. They aren´t even in the same ball game and to compare them as equals, I believe, is a mistake.

I remember a bunch of irate house Republicans vowing to haul Lois Lerner back into the hot seat after she pleaded the fifth with no standing to do so. The next thing we knew she was retiring with her full fat government pension after a few months of vacation, amusingly referred to as "paid leave". As far as I know, she never set foot on Capitol Hill again.

See how easy it was for zippy, Holder and Lerner to deny millions of citizens their right to participate in the electoral process? File this under voter fraud. The election should be declared null and void, Romney should be inaugurated and zippy, Holder and Lerner should be thrown into the sub basement of Leavenworth.

And just think, these are the people who are going to oversee your health care.

Are we finding at this late date that there is honestly NO way to hold crooks accountable for violating the Constitution? We are unprotected?

I just read where congress is going to pass a law making it illegal for the IRS to target people. How appalling and absurd; when a government agency targets people and uses their powoer to punish people, not only is it illegal, but it is unconstitutional, and they should be fired and brought to justice.

Read M Stanton Evans´s ´Blacklisted by History´ about communist infiltration of the government. State Department and Treasury Department security risks were often cleared by simply asking "Hey Bob. are you a communist? " whereupon it was announced to a willing press that the individual was ´cleared´ by internal investigation. It´s been going on for 70 years.

Since I believe that the bureaucrats really just watch out for themselves, I have to conclude that both the FBI and the IRS, have no part of their groups who distinguish right and wrong within their ranks, since they are not stepping up to discredit those who did wrong. Instead they are concocting a scenario that exempts everyone from responsibility.

In fact I think they rather like the idea of being the Pretorian Guard giving loyalty only to Caesar.

Another radical opinion: Any department that reports directly or indirectly to the Executive Branch has most likely been compromised. This includes all departments with three or four letter acronyms. This administration´s tentacles run deep and Obama´s people are now in top positions. He is also now stacking the federal courts with Reid´s illegal "nuclear option". There´s increasingly going to be no place to turn.

I think the number of groups targeted was 297; the FBI should be COMPELLED to speak to each and issue a report on each.

Also, the rules for granting tax exempt status should be reviewed and listed and a separate committee should review each of the denied/delayed requests. If the applicants meet the standards, the IRS should be COMPELLED to issue the tax exempt status.

And it should all be done in the open. Total transparency.

The Saga of Bundy Ranch --Federal Power, Rule
of Law and Averting Potential Bloodshed
Breitbart Big Government, by Logan Churchwell & Brandon Darby    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/14/2014 9:32:52 AM     Post Reply
BUNKERVILLE, NEVADA—The Bundy Ranch roundup has understandably stirred thin-stretched emotions as the federal government seizes cattle belonging to the Bundy family. The family settled in the late 1800’s and has ranched in the area since. The federal government allowed Nevada ranchers to graze their cattle on federal tracts of land adjacent to their private properties for generations. The federal government later created the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to administer and “protect” the vast swaths of federal land—including the land the Bundy family’s livelihood was—and still is—dependent upon. The BLM began restricting ranchers’ usage of federal lands to protect various

A huge wave of public testimony, reports and documents on what happened in Benghazi now floods Washington, and little of it focuses on the role of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton before, on, or after Sept. 11, 2012. Over the past 18 months, there have been at least seven public congressional hearings and three fact-finding reports on the terrorist attack. If not invisible, Mrs. Clinton is certainly portrayed as being only in the background during Benghazi, unaware of key events. In the early post-Benghazi days on Capitol Hill, Republicans tried to pry “what did she know and when did she know

Mr. Lesser’s giddiness about meeting the local celebrity had not faded when he sat down for lunch. “Awesome,” he said.

WASHINGTON – The Westboro Baptist Church, an extremist organization known for its anti-gay activism, announced that it will picket the funerals of the three people killed in Sunday afternoon’s shooting attacks at two Kansas City Jewish sites. The church, which has famously picketed funerals of US military personnel and has protested against the American Jewish community, sent out a tweet shortly after the shooting saying, “Thank God for shootings at Overland Park KS jewish centers! Westboro to picket funerals. God did not passover.” The Topeka, Kansas-based group is not affiliated with any Baptist organization, and has a long history of anti-Semitic

A Secret Fight over Russia

The Obama administration has scheduled a deputies committee meeting this week—tentatively set for Tuesday—to resolve a bitter inter-agency dispute over a request from Russia with respect to the Open Skies program. Informed sources believe the White House is likely to side with the State Department, which wants to accommodate Russia, over the objections of the Obama administration´s Defense Department and intelligence agencies. The Open Skies treaty allows the United States and Russia to fly over each other´s territory with planes loaded with certain agreed-upon sensor packages, in order to ensure compliance with arms control agreements and to provide assurance against

It’s not spying, it’s policing. Good news for New Yorkers, who live, work and play in what remains the world’s top terror target: New profiling rules the Justice Department is drafting will reportedly let the Federal Bureau of Investigation continue the critical work of using nationality to map neighborhoods, recruit informants and look for foreign agents. In other words, they’ll let the often-cautious FBI engage in intelligent and legitimate policing to prevent attacks against innocent Americans. As reported by The New York Times, the feds’ decision, arrived at after years of exhaustive legal and other reviews, is a tacit endorsement of nearly identical

Judging by the horse he gave Defense Secretary Chuckie Hagel a couple of days ago, Mongolian Defense Minister Dashdemberel must be a very diligent student of the defense budget that Congress is now trying to craft. The horse, of course, is a gelding. When the president announced his proposed budget and Hagel went to Congress to state the party line, I wrote that several indispensable weapon systems — the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft, the A-10 Warthog attack aircraft, and half of the Navy’s 22 cruisers among them — would be retired. Under the president’s plan, military pay raises would be capped at

White House senior adviser John Podesta is running against the clock. Time is winding on Podesta’s objective, which is to make sure President Obama put points on the board in the final three years of his second term through either legislation or executive action. With Obama and the White House flailing in late 2013, Podesta returned to the West Wing in January as part of an Obama reboot. A little more than three months later, the former chief of staff for President Clinton gets good marks from Democrats and fellow West Wingers for helping to improve the White House’s strategy and communications.

Dartmouth College students recently staged an overnight sit-in the office of their president Philip Hanlon. They had over seventy demands. Apparently, they grew out of their alleged suffering at the hands of “racist, classist, sexist, heterosexist, trans-homophobic, xenophobic, and ablest structures.” Translating into English, the students elaborated, “Our bodies are already on the line, in danger, and under attack” — suggesting conditions similar to the teen-aged Marines who stormed Fallujah in November 2004, or perhaps the iron-workers who tip-toe on girders 1,000 feet above Manhattan, or an acquaintance of mine whose work clothes reveal that he pumps out quite messy rural

On Friday the president used the long-awaited resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to again claim victory for his namesake health law. “She got it fixed, got the job done,” Obama said. Right. Sorry, there is plenty of more bad news ahead. It’s not called SebeliusCare, and she wasn’t to blame for most of its problems. The horrors were mostly baked into the law, with some made worse by the president’s dishonest hard sell to get unsuspecting Americans to sign up. Obama claimed Friday that 7.5 million people have enrolled in exchange coverage. In fact, perhaps 20 percent haven’t

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive
