Republicans Recall Lois Lerner
to Testify on targeting IRS

Daily Caller, by Alex Pappas

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 2/26/2014 7:06:59 AM

Republicans on Capitol Hill are not giving up on getting testimony out of Lois Lerner, the disgraced IRS official at the center of last year’s scandal over the agency’s targeting of conservative groups for special review.In a letter to Lerner’s attorney on Tuesday, House Oversight Committee Chair Darrell Issa said he is recalling her to testify on March 5 on her role in the scandal.Last May, Lerner — the director of the tax exempt and government entities division of the IRS — appeared before the committee for its hearing, “The IRS: Targeting Americans for Their Political Beliefs.” But she gave

Does Issa really expect a different outcome this time?

Hopefully she goes for a lighter sentence by implicating barry. She didn´t make those frequent visits to the White House to discuss the weather.

While they´re at it, the Republicans might want to bring up a story that Drudge is leading with today titled, "IRS Warns: Obamacare Tax Must Be Paid", accompanied by a frightening image of Obama in Uncle Sam´s clothes.

The IRS should be defunded: They have FAR overstepped their boundaries and are being used as Obama´s civilian police force. You remember, the one he promised if he was elected?

When she made her opening statement, she lost her 5th Amendment protection.

The 5th does not apply to selective questions but to all questions. She could be held in contempt of Congress if she tries to invoke the 5th again.

You do have the right to remain silent but once you open your mouth, you lose that right.

She made a statement which attempted to exonerate her and then pled the 5th. She opened the door to being queried as to her statements made..thus waiving 5th amendment. No immunity necessary, prosecute and charge her with contempt. I wonder who´s paying for this big wig attorney in DC?

Using the IRS as the enforcement arm of the DNC is the new standard. It will remain the standard until people are sent to prison and lose their jobs and retirement pay.

If Issa gives Lerner immunity, she can no longer invoke the 5th ammendment because she cannot implicate herself with her own testimony, unless she lies.

So Issa and committee has hard proof about the things he will ask Lerner. She will have to tell the truth, otherwise the immunity is terminated. Could get interesting.

Due to past performances by these committees, I am not hopeful that anything will come out of her testimony. I will be surprised if the Republicans have the will to demand answers to the questions that need asking. If the atmosphere gets tense in the least bit, the democrats will cry that Republicans are waging war against a woman for political purposes. Issa must make it clear right up front that he will settle for no less then absolute truth from anyone, man or woman. No more pussyfooting around. Women need to understand that their sex is not protection from testifying truthfully and men need to recognize that women who rise to the level of Lois Lerner are not fragile flowers. Treat them as equals.

I´m not a lawyer, but even I would think Issa and his committee must have some evidence on her lies, or why bring her back?

They MUST have something to force her statements, or why bother? Time to play hardball. The Dems want to use women for cover, let them see that there is one party that believes in Justice is Blind (of sex or race).

In numerous articles, Walid Shoebat has presented very strong evidence that Malik Obama — half-BROTHER of Barack Hussein Obama — is responsible for the Muslim Brotherhood’s financial investments and may qualify as an enemy-combatant.

Shoebat also reported that Lois Lerner illegally back-dated the tax-exempt status of Malik Obama’s organization.

Did Barack order Lois to grant tax-exempt status to half-brother Malik, perhaps to aid and abet Malik’s financing of terrorism?

Shoebat has now provided the phone numbers of Reps Darrell Issa, Trey Gowdy, and Jim Jordan, and for the Oversight Committee, and urges his readers to ask those three to introduce into the Oversight Committee’s hearing Lois Lerner’s dealing with Malik Obama. The phone numbers are here:

http://shoebat.com/2014/02/26/lois-lerner-called-back-testify-march-5th-malik-obama-questions-anyone/

For additional details, google for Malik, Brotherhood, Lerner, enemy combatant, and tax-exempt.

Like others here, I don´t look for the committee to get anything from Lerner. She is going to clam and repeat her 5th "rights" time after time. The dims have, over a long period of time, learned to withhold any information they want to from Republican committees and the public. And they know that with the media providing enormous cover for them, they will get away with it and make it look like Republicans are running a witch hunt against whomever. It´s really sickening what goes on in DC. It´s past time to COMPLETELY drain the swamp, make necessary changes to the Constitution to make it work the way it was intended to, and start all over again. That´s what they did 240yrs ago. We can do it again!

If she won´t talk, then let her not talk for a solid week. Even the thickest mouth breathing Obamaite will get the message that she is pure evil and the embodiment of the modern non-uniformed Sturmabteilung.

Mr Issa should say: ´You´ve invoked your 5th Amendment rights. I cannot compel you to testify but I can read all of your misdeeds into the official record for use in prosecuting you later.´

#27 Changing the Constitution has long been the aim of progressives.
Once the path is open that document becomes the living will of no rules those people want and their changes will reduce the the Union to ashes.
The first part to go will be the Bill of Rights that truly sets our promise of freedom.
Lerner will play that Bill of Rights to the max and that may save her but leave her totally tainted.
Better one tainted fool than the loss of the formed in concrete pillar of our existence.
Don"t mess with the Constitution for revenge.

New York - President Barack Obama is coming to New York City Friday to address the Rev.

The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant. The exchange got testy at times when Stahl continued to question Rev.

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

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'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

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
