Darrell Issa: Emails suggest Elijah Cummings
prompted IRS targeting of True the Vote

Washington Examiner, by Susan Ferrechio

Original Article

Posted By:BaseballFan, 4/9/2014 5:13:32 PM

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

Well, well, well.... I guess this is just more racism. /s off/

Wow, wow and wow. I knew something really stunk about all the anger at Issa over his reaction to Cummings recent idiocy. This just proves that Issa and the Republicans were getting too close for comfort to the truth. Jail is too good for the kind of filth that is Cummings and Lerner.

Senior Ranking Democrat on the Committee tasked with investigating the IRS targeting is complicit in supporting and encouraging said targeting. Suddenly all the bluster, obstruction and endless bleating about "Witch Hunts, McCarthyism and wasting time on a non-scandal" seem to make a whole lot more sense.


Issa is not accusing Cummins of an ethics violation poster #5, He is accusing Cummins of committing a felony.

I agree with the above outrage, but nothing is likely to come of this. Boehner will shut it down.

This should bring down the entire Democrat regime, but it won´t. If the Pubbies don´t have the stones to impeach our (half) black Emperor over the coverups of this and Benghazi, and his blatant disregard of the law and the Constitution, and if they won´t stand up to the arrogance of his black "Buddy" the AG, then they won´t touch this black Congressman.

After all, they wouldn´t want to be called "racists". They won´t do anything to distract from their case against Obamacare. They have placed all their political bets on the latter.

Senator (and I use the term lightly) Cummings bringing up Senator Joseph McCarthy who was investigating communists in the U.S. government is just a fearful attempt to try and discredit these hearings just as they did Senator McCarthy back then.

Cummings knows that the majority of the people are now coming to realize that Senator McCarthy was right then just as Senator Issa is right now.

Senator Cummings and his fellow party members are all Marxist Communists and the sooner the people of America vote them out of government the better off we will be. The congress, the senate and the president must come together and ban the communist party from ever holding any government office or working in the bureaucracy in any capacity.

#22 has the right answer. Nothing will come of this. Cummings and the Black Caucus will join together to hold a press conference to declare Issa and True the Vote racists and that will be the end of it. Speaker Boner will be asked what he is going to do about it and he will cry saying something about slavery and how badly blacks have been treated in this country. Black Politicians (except Republicans) are held to a much lower standard this will all just go away. Sadly the destruction of the country continues and the Federal agencies are being used against "we the people". Time for a second revolt.

To cover for Obama (which is Holder´s only priority) Lerner and Cummings will both take the fall. Obama will tell the black caucus that this is the way that it has to be and Cummings will get a no-show lucrative position with a Clinton foundation with the same offer to Lerner in some obscure corner of some liberal enterprise.

A few days after Cummings´ hissy fit, the entire CBC sent a letter to Issa demanding that the investigation be shut down. Coincidence? I think not.

Put Cummings and Lerner in the same cell in the basement of Leavenworth. Put zippy and Holder in the one next door.

Sadly it is not the least bit surprising to any of us that the IRS would conspire with a black liberal Representative to shut down a group fighting voter fraud. Like the other posters, I am way too cynical to believe either one will pay for their crimes, but now that these accusations have surfaced it does make Cummings look like a complete jackass in these hearings. It might be a great idea for a new sitcom.

Clearly, L-Dotters are frustrated with the whole process and rightly so. When is the last time that anyone was held accountable for anything in Washington DC? We sit here at our computers venting our anger and frustration but nothing comes from it. When will justice prevail. When will the bad guys be punished. The ability for the Lerner´s and Cummins of the world to blatantly lie and get away with it astounds me. Either the Republicans come together and get serious regarding these matters or they should just go ahead and admit that the rule of law is meaningless. These are not small violations. These are huge.

Republicans need to do the right thing. The democrats know they can shout you down and intimidate you with the race card. Please stand for something. Show them you will not stop until the truth is uncovered and those who have abused their power are held accountable. The entire system of government has been turned on its head by the democrat party. They have abused their power and intimidated anyone who would challenge them into silence. It is time the rule of law was restored. Get tough. Make the case and never, never give up. Take the gloves off. You may just save the Republic in the process.

Yes, it has been frustrating to watch the Democrats evade any serious consequences for their criminal acts so far, but Issa deserves huge praise for his tenacity on this case. He has stuck with it and finally dug up a smoking gun that can´t be blathered away.

And this hard evidence with Cummings´ fingerprints all over it may finally break the stonewalling by the DOJ. Failure to prosecute with such indisputable evidence could in fact result in criminal charges against Holder himself for obstruction of justice. Issa may have hit the jackpot on this one.

When a Mafia operation gets taken down, they have to get the soldiers, then the middle layers before they get the big dog. Criminals like to insulate their leadership from the actions they order. Once they start nailing the mouthpieces like this racist pig, they will have a clear shot (figuratively speaking) at the top dog and we all know where this stuff all started.

Gee, Lerner is in the bull´s eye, bomb bay doors are open. In the process another Democrat fly gets caught on the fly paper. Ldotters are so impatient. These things take time. Patience, resolve, determination win the day. Make no mistake-this appears to be the thread that could unravel this dictatorship, this nightmare. Go for birds in hand first, tougher, stonewalled cases, like Benghazi, later.

If Boehner or anyone else impedes prosecution, maybe Luc can poll possible spring/summer dates to pick from to march on DC: the date with most likes should be the designated march date and will get the most turnout. Shut them down-see you there.

FTA:Cummings said in the letter that he has publicly stated his interest in finding more about True the Vote, which supports voter ID laws that Cummings opposes.

Please tell me why anyone would oppose voter ID laws? Either you are registered to vote in a specific state, in a specific county, in a specific precinct, in a specific ward, a specific number of days before an election or you are not eligible to vote.

However, if you know you won´t be there in person on election day (as in the military, in school, or on an extended vacation, etc.), you can vote with an absentee ballot - but you still have to be registered to vote.

What is so difficult about those rules?

Every high school teaches the rules of voting at some level during a student´s career. I taught it to my 7th and 8th grade American History classes. We even had mock elections.

Old Elijah doesn´t apparently like the idea of "one man/woman one vote".

Excellent question, #49.
I have always thought that the word ´caucus´ was merely a misspelling for ´coccus´ as in staphylococcus, streptococcus or other strains of bacteria. Thus Black Coccus seems more appropriate when speaking of these hateful, anti-American racists.

It appears that perhaps that True the Vote was getting too close to the truth about so much voter fraud. The fact that far too many black voters were voting multiple times during elections. As such, they, black congress persons, would gravitate to together in order to destroy the entity that is getting too close to the truth. Cummings was just trying to do his part. And got caught.

I fear #45 is correct..he will re-elected and mostly on a biased vote.
I truly think Mr. Issa should start asking members of Congress if they have ever or if they are now members of the Commie Club of America. f not they should have their names removed from the list...If so, they should be kicked out of Congress...Its impossible to belong and be an American. But the answer to this question would sure explain the actions of many members of the dem party.

Shocking thing about the ´victim´ mentality is it´s ability to do great damage without any moral compunction. By promoting a false and even cartoonish narrative about ´white´ America, the left has ´empowered´ it´s constituents to run roughshod on innocent citizens in the name of ´getting even´.

This is going to get ugly.

I voted for Romney. He wasn’t one of my top picks, but he was the only feasible one to beat zero in November of 2012. For all of the stay at home purists, I’ll bet Mitt would not have appointed Holder as AG. I can envision a President PIAPS keeping him on too, he’s ideal for their cause. We can scream out for justice at the top of our lungs and it doesn’t matter because this DOJ is not going to pursue criminal charges against Lerner or Cummings or any other corrupt rat, and the media isn’t going to get involved.

Cummings and other rats are against voter ID because it would stop some of the fraud that helped Holder stay in as AG. A rat voter voted eight times to keep her freebies and some of you wouldn’t vote once to keep some of our freedoms because you tagged Romney as a RINO. I fear that we’ve become too divided and we’re going to be conquered.

Kinda dredges up all my suspicions about the 2012 election results. Obama so cool and self-assured in the face of reputable polls that should have had him flop-sweat panicked. But no, Obama´s people somehow knew he had it in the bag. Done deal. 96% of the black vote. 110% turnout in some black precincts. Some voters voting 12 times. So overload the black inner city votes that you take the swing blue states they sit in. Perhaps Cummings was panicked that True the Vote and similar organizations would expose the whole scheme that was used to steal the election.

I think I´ll resume referring to "President Romney."

Cummings, like so many others of his ilk (Holder, Obama, Van Jones, Sharpton, Jackson, et al....) are merely dumbass low-IQ race-baiters with only one message: skin color...well, homey don´t play dat anymore---only the truth matters, right? These guys are all habitual born liars, right? Regardless of their African lineage, they need to go to prison, and go NOW!!!

Colorado Springs, CO - About 10,000 immigrants in the country illegally have signed up to get Colorado driver´s licenses when they become available next month. The Gazette reported Wednesday that the state has added four full-time employees and 13 temporary employees to keep up with demand. A law passed last year allows people who don´t have a Social Security number to obtain a driver´s license if they live in Colorado starting Aug. 1. The applicants are making appointments to bring their identification documents to a motor vehicle office. A series of workshops are planned in the coming weeks to

SALT LAKE CITY - FBI agents arrested two former Utah attorneys general at their homes on Tuesday and charged them pair with felonies stemming from a two-year investigation into claims of bribery and corruption, prosecutors said. Republicans John Swallow and Mark Shurtleff are accused of establishing a pay-to-play culture in office, and of taking bribes to look the other way or offer protection when donors to their political campaigns ran into legal trouble. "This has been a complex, nuanced, large investigation and there are multiple players in it," Salt Lake District Attorney Sim Gill said at a news conference.

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl could have a tax-free $350,000 dropped into his bank account if the current investigation into his disappearance from his base in Afghanistan was not desertion, and if he is deemed to have been a prisoner of war for the five years he was held by Islamic militants, Fox News has learned. The 28-year-old soldier, for whom the U.S. traded five senior Taliban operatives held at Guantanamo Bay, was set to return to active duty Monday after spending six weeks in medical rehab at Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio. “Essentially he’ll be working a desk job,”

LJUBLJANA, Slovenia — Four Slovenian ski officials were suspended Friday for allegedly rigging the results of pop violinist Vanessa-Mae to help her qualify for the Winter Olympics in Sochi. Competing in Sochi for Thailand as Vanessa Vanakorn, using the surname of her Thai father, she finished a distant last among the 67 racers who completed the two runs in the Olympic giant slalom. To earn enough points to be eligible for the games in February, she had to compete in official races in Sweden, Norway, Slovenia and Switzerland. The Slovenian Ski Association said Friday it found evidence indicating that

No, the United States isn´t trying to build a military force of centenarians. It just seems that way after the Selective Service System mistakenly sent notices to more than 14,000 Pennsylvania men born between 1893 and 1897, ordering them to register for the nation´s military draft and warning that failure to do so is "punishable by a fine and imprisonment." The agency realized the error when it began receiving calls from bewildered relatives last week. Chuck Huey, 73, of Kingston, said he got a notice addressed to his late grandfather Bert Huey, a World War I veteran who was born

DENVER — In what may come as a surprise to residents of Colorado Springs and Pueblo, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg doesn’t think those cities have roads. Bloomberg told Rolling Stone that he was “sorry” about the recalls of two state senators last year over the Democratic state legislature’s gun-control laws, but added that their districts were so “rural” that, “I don’t think there’s roads.” “In Colorado, we got a law passed. The NRA went after two or three state senators in a part of Colorado where I don’t think there’s roads,” said Bloomberg in the interview published online Wednesday.

Two New York men are suing the New Jersey Lottery after they threw out a Powerball ticket worth $1 million. Salvatore Cambria and Erick Onyango, of Suffern, New York, argue in their federal lawsuit that the lottery didn´t quickly update its website with the winning numbers from the March 23 drawing. Cambria tells The Record newspaper he asked Onyango to check the website soon after the 11 p.m. drawing. Cambria tossed the ticket when the numbers didn´t match. The men now think the site was showing the previous drawing´s numbers. They say they realized they had won the next day.

The seasonally-adjusted price index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs hit an all-time high in May, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

San Diego-Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn has died of cancer at 54. Gwynn´s sweet left-handed swing made him one of San Diego´s best-loved athletes. He was nicknamed ´´Mr. Padre´´ during his 20-year major league career. He had been on a medical leave from his job as baseball coach at San Diego State, his alma mater, since late March. Agent John Boggs said Gwynn died Monday in suburban Poway. Gwynn had two operations for cancer in his right cheek between August 2010 and February 2012. The second surgery was complicated, with surgeons removing a facial nerve because it was intertwined with a

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
