FBI Has Yet To Contact IRS-
Targeted Tea Party Groups

PJ Media, by Matt Vespa

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 7/4/2013 1:00:33 AM

On May 14, the FBI claimed they launched an investigation into the IRS fiasco. FBI Director Robert Mueller was famously told Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio on June 13 that he didn’t know the name of the lead investigator at the Bureau spearheading the effort. That’s almost a month into the alleged investigation. This is a national story. It’s a major scandal – and you don’t know who the point guy, or gal, that’s tasked with getting to the bottom of this debacle?

Last night I saw O´Reilly "interview" Jordan Seculow, one of the attorneys for 41 targeted groups. O´Reilly talked and talked. Sekulow finally tried to get a word in edgewise but O´Reilly made it impossible for him to say much. I don´t know why O´Reilly bothers to get anyone to "interview". His ego won´t allow it.

Our government is thoroughly corrupt politically. It is dominated by loyal leftists who are brazen in their willingness to use all the machinations of government to stick it to their political enemies. IRS, DOJ, State, Treasury, DHS, you name it. Does anyone still doubt that those who vote the wrong way and say unsupportive things won´t end up at the back of the line for their healthcare? Does anyone think that prosecutorial decisions are not politically driven? Is anyone still surprised that our government acts vigorously to deport immigrant Christians and grant amnesty to millions of reliable Democrat voters?

We are at political war, and it may already be the end game (thus the lack of subtlety). Sadly, our reach-across-the-aisle teach-the-world-to-sing types won´t get it until the box car they´re riding in stops somewhere that doesn´t look like Disneyland. Too late.

Excellent metaphor, #9.
The problem for us is that there is no one to turn to. The msm and entertainment media are with the administration. About two-thirds of Congress is in bed with the administration and show complete disdain for average citizens.

Ah yes. Fourth of July. Intermission of Summer Stock on the Potomac.

The first and second acts exposed the administration players and their transgressions. With all the indignation from foes of our hero. Comic opera.

Does anyone see Washington moving any closer to hold anyone accountable and seek restitution of any form? Will the third act introduce us to a new hero bringing these despots to justice?

nah - I didn´t think so either.

Nothing is going to happen to these clowns.

Liberals migrate towards government and non-profit organizations and conservatives towards private businesses, entrepreneurship, and non-union jobs. So, WE are so screwed. We will never get the liberals out of government because they are protected by the unions and civil service bureaucracy.

The reason we are not doing much of anything about the clearly criminal actions of this administration is that our leaders in the GOP don´t have the will or courage to fight this administration and the lapdog press. They draw things out but do not know how to strike while the iron is hot. Two years on Fast and Furious? Really? Now scandal after scandal and all they can do is spin their wheels with lame "investigations" with no teeth. The are cowed by a rabid media ready to tear into anyone who would dare question the policies of dear leader. Until we get an Elliott Ness type who will get serious and take on the corruption that is entrenched on both sides in Washington DC, things will never change. Powerful but corrupt people are running this country. It is going to take unimaginable will and courage to expose and put an end to this corruption. Our present guys running the investigations don´t seem to have what it takes. Use the power of your office. Issue subpoenas quickly and demand their appearance immediately. You have unprecedented acts of unconstitutionality committed by these people. Where is the urgency?

A common mistake is to believe that all gub´mnt employees are mind numbed, knee jerk, robot like letwingtards.

They aren´t.

Working in the most unionized gub´mnt agency in America for 40 years I learned that actual Democrat party partisans are few and far between, and about half the folks vote Republican anyway, so what´s the use of trying any harder to get them to do Democrat stuff.

However, whenever there´s been a Democrat in the White House and a Democrat as Speaker of the House, the appointments to the Board of Governors were always from the leftwing fringe of folks available to do that sort of job. When there´s been a Republican in the White House and a Republican as Speaker of the House, the appointments to the Board of Governors were always from the leftwing fringe of folks..... WHAH!?!?!?!?!?!

Yes, that´s right ~ Republicans used the same hiring hall ~ sometimes, though, you´d get a businessman ~ and sure enough he´d be one of the toadies behind a big RINO.

The background of this series of factoids is that the few political selections that end up in USPS or the Postal Rate Commission always represent the noisiest bunch of customers ~ the NON PROFIT GROUPS ~ they move heaven and earth to get their boys put in charge of the big decisions at USPS, and fur shur, The Nonprofits are decidedly to the LEFT

If we keep up the pressure, the FBI will be embarrassed into doing its job. You feebs don´t want to go down the drain of corruption and scandal like the IRS did, now do you? J. Edgar would frown upon that.

Yes, this country will turn to war soon, but don´t worry, the good patriots will triumph over both their government and the parasites living amongst us. Think 300 Spartans.We have what it takes and they don´t.

The FBI is still tied up with Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the Black Panthers, and Obama´s ricin letters. As soon as those investigations are complete, agents can be reassigned, if available.

How quickly we forget the Founders ~ among them the Maryland 400 who called themselves the Flying Geese.

They held back the Brits at the cost of more than half their number as he evacuated the disasters at New York.

William Alexander (Lord Stirling) was their commander.

It´s crystal clear that one of the largest reasons that we don´t see any shove back against the dims is simply because the Republican party has, over the past years, become nothing more that dim lite. The establishment pubis are, for the most part, nothing more than RINO´s. And that doesn´t leave much room for bedrock conservatives. If we want to return this nation to what it was supposed to be, we´d better dust on the 2nd Amendment and use it.

The hallmark of this lawless administration, when they are caught in any of many malfeasances is: "Whaddaya Gonna DO about it?" If the FBI is slow to act, be sure that Obama has allowed that to be the case. He has NO desire to keep this IRS outrage in the spotlight. The ultimate outrage however must be reserved for those Americans still among the 46% who actually approve of Obama and voted for him for no other reason than he speaks nicely and is black. THEY are the reason that America is losing the freedom that so many have died to protect. Those Americans are truly an abomination.

The reason that there is little interest in this IRS scandal is because the RNC, GOP, RINO`S wanted to destroy the Conservative Tea Party along with the left. I despise Karl Rove and all the others who put down the Tea Party , their day of reckoning is coming,and I hope its soon.

In the fall of 2010, the nasty midterms drawing to a close, Michelle Obama was contemplating her next move. Two years into her tenure as first lady, the breathless fixation on guest lists and china selections was subsiding into routine, and she wanted a plan for the rest of her husband’s time in office. Of course, her calendar would never lack for National Hostess duties—the obligatory social functions outlined in binders left by Laura Bush’s team. She had already launched Let’s Move!, the childhood obesity initiative, and Joining Forces, a program to help military families and veterans, was also in

ALBANY — New York, whose status as the most populous state has long been ceded, will soon fall behind Florida into fourth place, a long-anticipated drop that is rife with symbolism and that could carry potentially serious economic consequences in coming years. When the Census Bureau releases its latest population estimates on Monday, demographers expect that Florida and New York will be narrowly separated — perhaps by as little as a few thousand people — and that if Florida does not pass New York this time, it almost certainly will do so in 2014. The census figures underscore immigration trends, as foreign-born migrants continue to

The two tabloid editors at the centre of the phone hacking trial had a secret six-year affair at the end of which Rebekah Brooks wrote to Andy Coulson: “I love you ... You are my very best friend ... I tell you everything,” the Old Bailey heard. It is alleged that Mrs Brooks and Mr Coulson oversaw phone hacking and corruption at two of the country’s biggest newspapers. Details of the clandestine relationship were made public during the second day of their trial, where they are accused of overseeing a decade of illegal activity at The Sun and The News

The Oscar-winning film director Charles Ferguson has cancelled his CNN documentary on Hillary Clinton after what he described as a private campaign against the film by prominent Democrats. Ferguson said he had decided to pull the plug after being met with a wall of silence from more than a hundred people who refused to be interviewed for the documentary. He claimed that aides to the former secretary of state put pressure on CNN behind the scenes, and made clear that Clinton would only co-operate "over my dead body". He also blamed a public campaign by Republicans, who claimed the film would be

When Ted Sarandos put out the word that Netflix would begin producing original shows, he was swamped with story pitches that everyone else in Hollywood clearly had taken a pass on — including some scripts marked with coffee stains, smudged fingerprints and other telltale signs of rejection. That all changed in 2011 after Netflix bought the political thriller "House of Cards" from "The Social Network" and "Fight Club" director David Fincher.

It’s a Duck Nation, and we’re all just living in it. Last week, A&E Network’s reality show “Duck Dynasty” catapulted to become the biggest unscripted show in cable history with its fourth season premiere. With nearly 11.8 million viewers, the show about a Louisiana family that has made millions from its duck call fabrication business is on the brink of toppling “The Walking Dead.” If it does, it will become cable´s biggest show. The A&E Network, as Duck Commander patriarch Phil Robertson would say, is “Happy, happy, happy.” The show premiered in March 2012 and finished its first cycle with an average

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Democrat Anthony Weiner said that the new sexting firestorm that set his City Hall campaign reeling last week will in the end make him a stronger mayor and better able to deliver for Staten Island and the rest of the city.

Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew, who oversees the IRS, made the rounds of four Sunday morning TV talk shows (all but CBS’s Face the Nation) to promote President Obama’s latest “pivot” to the economy, but ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and CNN’s Candy Crowley failed to take advantage of the opportunity to press him on the IRS scandal. NBC’s David Gregory squeezed a question in at the very end of their session, but then didn’t follow up on Lew’s insistence “there’s no evidence of any political involvement.” Gregory: “Mr. Secretary, I’ll leave it there.

The 60 million yuan (£6.4 million) Jibaozhai Museum, located in Jizhou, a city in the northern province of Hebei, opened in 2010 with its 12 exhibition halls packed with apparently unique cultural gems. But the museum’s collection, while extensive, appears ultimately to have been flawed. On Monday, the museum’s ticket offices were shut amid claims that many of the exhibits were in fact knock-offs which had been bought for between 100 yuan (£10.70) and 2,000 yuan (£215). The museum’s public humiliation began earlier this month when Ma Boyong, a Chinese writer,

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

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

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

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

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

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

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

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
