‘Not even a SMIDGEN of corruption’:
Obama DOUBLES DOWN on IRS
targeting denial

Daily Caller, by Brendan Bordelon

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 2/3/2014 1:10:11 AM

President Barack Obama again denied any wrongdoing by the IRS over their targeting of conservative tea party groups, telling Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the way the tax enforcer processed tea partiers’ 501(c)4 paperwork. (Snip) “So you’re saying there was no corruption there at all?” O’Reilly asked. “Absolutely not,” the president replied. “There were some bone-headed decisions out of a local office.” “But no mass corruption?” O’Reilly persisted. “Not even mass corruption,” a visibly-annoyed Obama replied. “Not even a smidgen of corruption.” It’s a far cry from Obama’s May 2013 statement called the targeting “outrageous.”

Comments:
Yes, Mr. President, not even a smidgeon....and the Benghazi massacre was merely a "bump in the road."

Be careful about the word ´corruption´. At one time it referred to what we would call bribery now. No one has said the IRS people were bribed or given favors.

Exactly what the word means in law today, or to Obama, or to media I can´t say.

If what Obama´s saying is the case,then why won´t he allow an IRS employee testify before congress?
Seriously,can this guy go 5 mins. without lying?

The prevaricator-in-chief wouldn´t recognize the truth if it walked up and goosed him!!! Every word out of his mouth is a lie including "if," "and" and "the!!!". In fact, if he told me that the sky was blue, grass was green and poop stank, I would check it for myself before accepting his word!!!

O´Reilly fashions himself as a "tough guy" but he is a wimp. He kissed the rear end of the "won". If he really had a "no spin zone" - why was he there talking to the liar in chief?

“There were some bone-headed decisions out of a local office.”

Haven´t some mid-level managers in the chain of command between the White House and the local office already testified under oath to the contrary? O´Reilly missed his chance by not asking why, then, he´s been audited 3 times since his interviewee took office.

It´s my understanding that the administration is giving the IRS a pass on this without having interviewed even one complainant. What kind of investigation is that???

Obama knew there was a huge audience out there, many of them LoFo, NoFo or Obama loyalists. So he bluffed a series of lies and dismissal of facts figuring he could get away with that and mix in a little FoxNews blame game to boot. I think BOR was shocked and taken off his game by Obama´s chutzpah. BOR should have approached it as the last interview he would ever get from Obama and really press the character. And he should have narrowed the scope. One or two subjects for 15 minutes and press the hell out of them. Make the clown sweat.

This lie is enough for impeachment as the cover up continues. "High crimes and misdemeanors" are not inclusive enough. He blames Fox news for all of his problems. He was obviously heavily medicated but not enough.

O´Reilly ended the interview by saying to Obama, "I think your heart is in the right place." Does anyone who is paying attention actually believe that Obama´s heart is in the right place? That he genuinely wants to serve this nation and help it to succeed? It is important for our media to alert the people that our nation is tottering on the brink of destruction. Polite platitudes are not appropriate.

I applaud Bill´s efforts to extract a confession from the liar in chief - but O is to slimy to get caught in that trap. The best thing to come from the interview is O´s obvious hatred for Fox News and that he can´t stand anyone saying anything negative about his motives and intentions.

It was a noble effort if for only the reason we could see so clearly what a liar O is when confronted with harsh facts.

I think Barry gave O´Reilly the interview with the intent of smearing Fox News. Realistically, would any President just fold and say "Yeah, I did it." - whatever "it" is?

Nixon said "I did not lie". Clinton said: "I did not have sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinski."

All of this is a waste of time. O´reilly is a waste of time. Discussing it in the news is a waste of time. It makes no difference. Unless, the people in power with authority move. Form a select committee to investigate Benghazi. Get an independent prosecutor to look at the IRS. The Republican majority are cowards who will not do their oversight job and defend America and its citizens. In the meantime just a waste.

One simple fact I would like to see used to dispel the "local office" baloney is that the office to which he makes reference is THE office for the processing of 501C´s. This is done in Cincinnati, not all around the country in just any office. This is pure deception and an easy opening for O´Reilly to have used.

The smidgen bit is the same as telling the nation that if they like their doctor and insurance that they could keep them, those assertions were bogus from the get-go. But he was re-elected and knows that the wimpy Republicans don´t have the stones to get rid of him just as BOR gave him a going away kiss at the end of the interview.

Hussein´s credentials are a redacted lie, and his years in office are packed in one continuous LIE after another.

The seriousness of this imposter´s mental disturbances
are beautifully described by forensic psychologist, Dr Paul Fick, in his second best selling book, available on Amazon, THE DESTRUCTIVE PRESIDENT.
Or, go directly to www.destructivepresident.com. and read a few of the athor´s descriptive pages of this greatly troubled person.
In the Clinton days, it was Paul Fick PhD, who wrote and spent three years on talk radio, presenting his first predictions of Slick Willie´s lying and sex predator days BEFORE Drudge broke the Monica Lewinsky story, and everything in Dr Fick´s book came true! Two great books, Clinton´s DYSFUNCTIONAL PRESIDENT, and now, Obama´s THE DESTRUCTIVE PRESIDENT !

Mickey Rooney, Legendary Actor,

Mickey Rooney, the pint-sized actor who was one of MGM’s giant box office attractions in the late ’30s and early ’40s, died on Sunday. He was 93. As adept at comedy as drama and an excellent singer and dancer, Rooney was regarded as the consummate entertainer. During a prolific career on stage and screen that spanned eight decades (“I’ve been working all my life, but it seems longer,” he once said), he was nominated for four Academy Awards and received two special Oscars, the Juvenile Award in 1939 (shared with Deanna Durbin) and one in 1983 for his body of work.

One of the latest tools targeting the growing problem of texting while driving didn´t come out of Apple, Google or Microsoft. It was the brainchild of two Orlando-area entrepreneurs who recently launched a new mobile app called Txt Shield. The idea behind Txt Shield, which runs on Android phones, is to short-circuit any texting capability when people are cruising down the highway, according to brothers Philip and Geoffrey Stiles, co-founders and partners in Txt Shield LLC. Parents can install it on their teens´ phones; employers can put it on company-issued phones; and individuals can download it to help resist the urge to

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

President Obama says the thousands of Irish immigrants in the US are being denied opportunities because of the US strict immigration laws. The President was speaking the traditional Shamrock ceremony at the White House as part of the St Patrick´s Day celebrations. The issue of immigration reform was a priority for the Irish Government delegation, led by Enda Kenny. The delegation has been lobbying in Washington during the St Patrick´s Day trip for reforms to benefit the 50,000 undocumented Irish there. President Obama said too many undocumented Irish were denied the chance to contribute to society as they were not able to pay taxes

Today Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said investigators believe flight MH370´s disappearance is the result of ´deliberate action´ by someone on the plane.

President Barack Obama held a Spanish language town hall at the Newseum last week in which he was interviewed by reporters from some of the largest Spanish media outlets in the world. During the interview, he was asked a question from a man who wanted to buy Obamacare for a family of three but couldn’t afford it. (Snip) Obama couldn’t settle on a single answer to the question, so he instead suggested that the man should just sign up for Medicaid, blamed Texas for affordable insurance not being available, and concluded by saying the man should cancel his telephone service

Why discredited ‘scandals’
get less attention
MSNBC, by Steve Benen    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 3/12/2014 8:48:55 PM     Post Reply
On Fox News last night, Bill O’Reilly struggled with a question he apparently finds confusing: why aren’t major news organizations covering the IRS “scandal” to his satisfaction. Lois Lerner, the former head of the IRS’ tax exempt division, took the Fifth last week, but most of the media seemed indifferent. (Snip) That’s one possible explanation. But in the interest of giving O’Reilly and Goldberg something else to consider, there’s a more plausible, reality-based reason the media has lost interest in this scandal: there is no scandal. As we’ve discussed on more than a few occasions, the story has already been

The past two days have revealed the dangerous ramifications of the narrow-minded foreign policy elite in Washington, and a media establishment that has for so much of President Obama’s tenure accepted the statements of the administration as gospel. (Snip) If this is the sort of foreign policy anticipation that the establishment delivers, it’s little surprise that no one trusts America’s self-styled policy elites any more. They are too used to judging the world according to the patterns toward which they are already biased, as opposed to seeing it as it is.

President Obama has made liberal use of "executive action" throughout his presidency, and pledged to make even more use of executive action in this year´s State of the Union speech. He seems to think that because Republicans don´t want to implement his agenda, he can go around Congress. The Heritage Foundation is out with a new report on President Obama´s executive actions, titled "An Executive Unbound," finding that "abusive, unlawful, even potentially unconstitutional unilateral action has been a hallmark of the Obama Administration." They´ve also compiled a list of the top ten abusive executive actions taken by the President.

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

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

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

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

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

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

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

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

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.
