Exclusive: IRS Stonewalling FOIA
Request Surrounding Correspondence
With Democratic Members of Congress

Townhall, by Katie Pavlich

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/16/2014 9:35:08 PM

On May 21, 2013 the National Republican Senatorial Committee sent the IRS a Freedom of Information Act request asking for "any and all documents or records, including but not limited to electronic documents, e-mails, paper documents, photographs (electronic or hard copy), or audio files," related to correspondence from January 1, 2009 and May 21, 2013 between thirteen different Democrat members of Congress and top IRS officials. (Snip) Members of Congress named in the request include Sen. Schumer (D-NY), Sen. Reid (D-NV), DSCC Chair Sen. Bennet (D-CO), Sen. Landrieu (D-LA), Sen. Pryor (D-AR), Sen. Hagan (D-NC), Sen. Begich (D-AK), Sen. Shaheen

I just don´t understand this. The IRS has sent six letters saying the same thing except for the alleged response date. These responses are supposed to be made within 20 days. Why doesn´t a judge order them to produce these like they did with Judicial Watch? This is is outrageous that they ignore congress.

If my memory serves me correctly, South Carolina prefers mustard based barbeque sauce. Isn´t that right, Trey Gowdy?

That´s just the way Democrats like to do things: terrorize, harass and suppress their enemies. They are the party of the Klan, after all, who targeted both Blacks and Republicans. When they get a little power, they just can´t help themselves. Their totalitarian impulses come out.

Rep. Kevin McCarthy
Elected New GOP Leader
National Journal, by Tim Alberta*    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/19/2014 3:18:32 PM     Post Reply
House Republicans on Thursday elected Kevin McCarthy as their new majority leader, elevating the 49-year-old Californian to the No. 2 position in GOP leadership and triggering a subsequent contest to replace him as majority whip. McCarthy defeated Rep. Raul Labrador in the race to replace Eric Cantor, whose shocking primary loss last Tuesday set the stage for Thursday´s secret-ballot special election. Republicans will now choose between three candidates vying to replace McCarthy as whip: Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, who chairs the Republican Study Committee; Rep. Peter Roskam of Illinois, currently the chief deputy whip; and Rep. Marlin Stutzman of Indiana, a

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) says that the Obama presidency is over. “I saw a commentator say that these polls, what they reflect, is that the Obama presidency is over, and I agree with that,” Rubio told Sean Hannity on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Wednesday. “I think it is in general.” The commentator, NBC’s Chuck Todd, had said Wednesday in his analysis of an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that 54 percent of respondents no longer believed that Obama “is able to lead the country and get the job done.” On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Todd commented, “I mean, essentially, the public

Mohamed Elibiary is a senior member of the Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council. According to a report by the Center for Security Policy, Elibiary also supports brokering a U.S. partnership with the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group. This week, Breitbart’s Kerry Picket reported that Elibiary wrote on Twitter that it is “inevitable that [the] Caliphate returns.” (Snip) Elibiary was seemingly indifferent towards the caliphate-seeking tactics of the ruthless terrorist group known as Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), which is marching through Iraq slaughtering non-Sunni Muslims and beheading innocents. He said on Twitter, "Kind of comical watching pundits on

President Obama announced Thursday that he´s dispatching Secretary of State John Kerry to the Middle East in response to the crisis in Iraq, and is preparing to send up to 300 military advisers and set up "joint operation centers" to aid the Iraqi military. The president addressed the sectarian violence in Iraq and the U.S. response after meeting for hours with his national security team. The president repeatedly stressed that U.S. combat troops would not engage in the conflict. "Ultimately, this is something that´s going to have to be solved by the Iraqis," Obama said.

WEBSTER, Texas -- A Webster man says his apartment complex manager told him his American flag was a “threat to the Muslim community,” and that he has to take it down. But he’s not giving up without a fight. Stepping onto Duy Tran´s balcony in Webster, one thing is clear: "It means a lot to me," he said. He´s talking about his American flag that he proudly put up when he moved in just a few days ago. But then an apartment manager at the Lodge on El Dorado told him he had to take it down.

Let´s begin with Barack Obama´s infamous words: That central Obamacare promise, like its closest cousins, have been downgraded and revised to death. Last year, scholars at the Manhattan Institute ran a 49-state analysis of individual market healthcare rates under Obamacare and found a 41 percent increase on average. Their follow-up study of more than 3,100 counties across the country pegs the average hike at 49 percent. Consumers in New York -- home to a distorted, "death spiral"-plagued individual market prior to Obamacare -- are among the few Americans who´ve enjoyed an average rate drop. Virtually everywhere else, price tags went

Matt Lauer´s new two-plus-year deal to remain on NBC´s Today has shored up the lucrative franchise as it continues to chip away at ABC´s top-rated Good Morning America. But that bit of good news for NBC News president Deborah Turness came June 12 amid several ongoing ratings and personnel challenges. NBC´s other flagship broadcast, Nightly News With Brian Williams, lost six of the previous nine weeks to ABC´s World News With Diane Sawyer in viewers ages 25 to 54, the demographic upon which the bulk of TV news ads are sold.

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday ruled unanimously that taxpayers have a right to challenge an Internal Revenue Service summons enforcement action in court when they can show the tax agency might have issued the summons in bad faith. The tax-collecting IRS argued taxpayers already have opportunities to challenge a summons, but the nine justices ruled in favor of a Florida man who demanded an evidentiary hearing about the motives of IRS officials for issuing a summons. Michael Clarke of West Palm Beach said the IRS issued a summons as retribution against him and his business partners for

Outgoing White House press secretary Jay Carney says he felt “liberated” when he left Time magazine to work for the Obama administration. At a breakfast with reporters sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor a block from the White House Thursday morning, Carney was asked about his transition from journalist to political spokesman and the lessons he learned. He said after years of being a straight reporter, he was relieved to be able to speak on behalf of an administration with which he agreed on issues. “I didn’t feel like I had a straitjacket on when I took this job,” Carney

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Patent Office ruled Wednesday that the Washington Redskins nickname is "disparaging of Native Americans" and that the team´s federal trademarks for the name must be canceled. The 2-1 ruling comes after a campaign to change the name has gained momentum over the past year. The team doesn´t immediately lose trademark protection and is allowed to retain it during an appeal. Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has refused to change the team´s name, citing tradition, but there has been growing pressure including statements in recent months from President Barack Obama, lawmakers of both parties and civil rights groups.

In what some see as the first step to forcing the Washington Redskins football team to change their name, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday cancelled six federal trademarks of the team name because it´s “disparaging” to Native Americans. “Petitioners have shown by a preponderance of the evidence that a substantial composite of Native Americans found the term REDSKINS to be disparaging,” said the decision. Fans, however, won’t see any immediate change — even if Daniel Snyder’s team eventually loses in court. That’s because all the order will do is eliminate the trademark the team has on merchandise. The Redskins are expected to appeal.

Megyn Kelly opened her show tonight tearing into the Obama White House for what increasingly looks like an “imploding” presidency, given scandal after scandal after scandal the White House has found itself engulfed in, both domestically and abroad. Kelly opened with this simply question: “Is Barack Obama‘s presidency imploding?” She cited the bewildering fact that the U.S. may ally with Iran to deal with the situation in Iraq, and ripped Obama in particulas as “a president who has lost the trust of the American people by repeatedly misleading them.” She went down a list of scandal after scandal that the president has

Washington -- I´ll let you know what´s going on, but I don´t need new congressional authority to act, President Barack Obama told congressional leaders Wednesday about his upcoming decision on possible military intervention in Iraq. The White House meeting sounded more like a listening session for the top Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate about options for helping Iraq´s embattled Shiite government halt the lightning advance of Sunni Islamist fighters toward Baghdad that Obama is considering. According to a White House statement, Obama went over U.S. efforts to "strengthen the capacity of Iraq´s security forces to confront the threat" from

WASHINGTON — The White House said Wednesday it has found no emails between any person in the executive office of the president and a top Internal Revenue Service official who has been connected to the improper scrutiny of political groups. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the White House searched for all communications between the former IRS official, Lois Lerner, and executive office personnel. "We found zero emails," he said. He said the search discovered three emails in which a third party emailed both Lerner and executive office staff. He said one was spam and two others were from a person seeking

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney explained that President Obama is fully engaged in the situation in Iraq – even though he spent last weekend golfing. Carney was asked about former Vice President Dick Cheney’s op-ed in The Wall Street Journal criticizing the President for golfing instead of paying attention to world affairs. “I think it’s pretty clear that this President has been paying close attention to this and has been engaging regularly with his national security team,” Carney said, praising Obama for deliberating carefully about the use of force in Iraq.

Hillary Clinton´s minions are hard at work assembling a political machine and fine tuning it for another go at the White House. Mrs. Clinton is doing her part preparing for a run as well, churning out a bland memoir about the "hard choices" she faced as secretary of state and coyly positioning herself (again) as the inevitable nominee of the party. But after the troubled beginning to her book tour, we´re beginning to see the reasons why Hillary may eventually decide to pull the plug on a 2016 presidential run. Here are five: 1) She´s just not that good at campaigning. If the last two gaffe-prone weeks have reminded us of anything about Hillary,

Hillary Clinton — the woman assumed to be the next Democratic Party presidential nominee and quite possibly the next president — is evidently a big snooze. According to Mediate, her interviews to promote her book on CNN and Fox had underwhelming numbers. In the case of Greta Van Susteren’s show, she sent people fleeing midway. More importantly, her book itself is a sales disappointment and, I would wager, even more disappointing if you could ascertain how many who did buy it read actually past page 15. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in single digits. No, I haven’t read it

Yesterday, it was announced the Obama administration had moved on Sunday to arrest a Benghazi al-Qaeda leader Ahmed Abu Khattala. Many people, including Fox’s James Rosen pointed particular questions to the State Dept. about “why now”? As unbelievable as this might sound, the most likely answer has little to do with what’s currently being pondered as a motive for this administration, “squirrel”. The reality is within the Bergdahl deal, and the GITMO-5 to Qatar, there is a far more likely reason.Ahmed Abu Khattala is directly connected to the covert transfer of U.S. arms from Qatar to Libya in the initial 2011

In short, the poll is nothing but bad news for the president.
