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 ~

Im beginning to see that there is nothing outrageous enough to bring attention to the public about this corrupt administration. We have a complicit media and way too many people that are just uninterested and uninformed in our loser in the WH and his lackies.

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.

It is a bit bigger and somewhat colder, but a planet circling a star 500 light-years away is otherwise the closest match of our home world discovered so far, astronomers announced on Thursday. The planet, known as Kepler 186f, named after NASA’s Kepler planet-finding mission, which detected it, has a diameter of 8,700 miles, 10 percent wider than Earth, and its orbit lies within the “Goldilocks zone” of its star, Kepler 186 — not too hot, not too cold, where temperatures could allow for liquid water to flow at the surface, making it potentially hospitable for life. “Kepler 186f is

Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards returned to the courtroom in North Carolina this week. Edwards, before entering politics as a senator from North Carolina, shot to prominence as a personal injury lawyer in the state and restarted his practice late last year. In his first case back in the courtroom, Edwards is part of a legal team representing a 4-year-old in a medical malpractice case. The Virginia boy was three months old during a hospital visit in 2009 and “the hospital is accused of failing to ensure the baby received adequate oxygen, resulting in a brain injury,” according to

The VA hospital that slapped a $525 federal fine on a man after he refilled his 89-cent drink without paying has backed down, choosing to issue a warning instead of a citation, a spokesperson for the facility said Thursday. Christopher T. Lewis, of North Charleston, was issued the $525 citation on Wednesday after he ignored signage indicating that there’s no such thing as a free lunch — or complimentary drink refills — at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center in Charleston. Lewis, who is not a federal employee, told responding officers he had done the same thing “multiple times” before

"Information you choose to share with the White House (directly and via third party sites) may be treated as public information," the new policy says. The Obama Administration also promises not to sell the data of online visitors. But it cannot make the same assurances for users who go to third-party White House sites on Facebook, Twitter or Google

What Happened to the Tea Party?

It has been five years since the Tea Party movement broke out as a national phenomenon. It began, of course, with Rick Santelli’s “rant heard ’round the world” in February of 2009, which brought widespread attention to the idea of a modern revival of the revolutionary anti-tax fervor behind the Boston Tea Party. But the early rallies were small and largely attracted the same old die-hard right-wing activists, rather than drawing in new people. I didn’t know whether the Tea Party would become a real phenomenon until April 15, 2009—Tax Day being a perfect time to protest big government—when there were hundreds

Let´s get one thing clear: If someone could wave a wand and make Jeb Bush president it would be a very good thing for the world and this country. As his mother said, he is the best-prepared person. But as his mother also said, he shouldn’t be running. And the reasons are becoming more clear by the day. Problem one is that much like Mitt Romney, he is one political generation too old. Both last held office in 2006, and seem to have stayed there. Problem two is the anguished ambivalence, reminiscent of Mario Cuomo and Adlai E. Stevenson, which does not bode

Conakry, Guinea -- It´s hard not to be nervous, standing outside the Ebola isolation wards. The wards are a cluster of unassuming white tents in the middle of a large field, not far from the center of the city. Each is just big enough to hold around 10 cots. Two layers of zippers keep the outside from getting in, and more importantly here -- the opposite. Nobody goes inside the tent without spending 15 minutes putting on isolation gear. The nurse handing over my garb calls it my "space suit." I can´t help but think that going into an Ebola

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

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'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

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

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

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

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen.

Davis, of Fort Worth, will undergo the outpatient surgery at the Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute. Dr. Thomas Ellis will perform the

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
