IT experts call BS on IRS
claim to have lost Lerner emails

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

The cover-up is always worse than the crime, the conclusion drawn from Watergate, does not seem to have been learned by the IRS or whoever directed it to make the claim late Friday that emails from Lois Lerner to outside agencies (including most notably the White House) were lost in a computer “crash.” That claim is risible according to various experts. That claim is risible according to various experts. Jason Howerton of The Blaze interviewed veteran IT expert Norman Cillo, “an Army veteran who worked in intelligence and a former program manager at Microsoft,” who laid out six reasons, complete with charts, why he believes

I love the questions posed by Sharyl Attkisson. I was thinking just subpoena the hard drive, but her approach is much better. Bring in the IRS poohbahs and let them hang themselves. This is one lie too far.

The emails must really be bad and show the W.H. Involvement and vast conspiracy used to rig an election. Even the Left knows this lost email defense is pure B.S. and Republicans need to start questioning IRS officials under oath until this House of Cards begins to collapse.

Recent reports of the IRS sending docs to DOJ to go after Conservatives for CRIMINAL PROSECUTION is the MOST serious scandal of all.

This is beyond absurd. Nobody with experience in IT would accept such a shoddy excuse. It´s ludicrous. Here are the main reasons this is not even remotely possible.

1) While you may store copies of your email on your local device, they are in fact processed and stored on remote servers. Those servers are backed up and archived in multiple time-shifted media (daily, weekly, monthly, annual) and those archives are also typically stored both onsite and offsite.

2)You are not the only possessor of your emails. The recipients of your emails also have them, separate and apart from your stored emails. Even if your personal copies of those emails were completely destroyed in all the above mentioned places, they still exist in your recipients´ locations.

3) In order for your emails to be lost in all your recipients´ email locations, they would have to be searched for and individually deleted by all your recipients, and the backups and archived server files of all your recipients would have to be destroyed too.

Bottom line...they´re lying.

"Follow the hubris"

This sums up Obama´s and Jarrett´s thinking that we continue to be stupid and they are the greatest "rulers" since Genghis Kahn.

Considering the gator-infested swamp that they have already sunk themselves into, the day of reckoning is going to be extremely eye-opening for the Kenyan tin god and his witch.

This latest page of the ongoing scandal proves that the persecution of conservatives was being directed from the top. Oval Office occupant ValJar , w Øbunghole´s bleated assent, laid this out....who else would claim to have only lost Lois Lerner´s emails and no others. But nothing will happen because Holder Wont Prosecute. Øbunghole has co-opted the Judicial branch , owns Congress and has the media licking his .... Backside. The coup is complete. Congress doesnt give two flying ffffflips about this.. The Congres-critters only care about their taxpayer-funded pensions.

No way out for Dems and media?

The Democratic Party and mainstream media both bet big on Barack Obama in 2008, and doubled down in 2012. Both institutions wagered that his policies and his purported skills and abilities would benefit America. Now, with scandal and disaster breaking on nearly every front, those bets are coming back to haunt them. (snip)Democrats will have nowhere to run. If they flee the president, they’ll look weak, defensive — and guilty. If they back his failed policies, they’ll look even worse

A Heartbreaking Unspoken
Consequence of Obama

Decades of socialist/progressive indoctrination in our schools, media, and culture, plus six years of Obama, have yielded a devastating unspoken consequence. It is the loss of who we use to be as Americans. In his 1961 Inaugural Address, President John F. Kennedy said, “My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” Democrats have perverted Kennedy´s inspiring challenge. Their dispiriting goal is to have as many Americans as possible controlled by and dependent on government, even for life itself, which is at the root of ObamaCare.

The Compromise Canard

Barack Obama and many Democrats routinely accuse Republicans of being incapable of compromise. Journalists follow their orders and spread the message. Nothing can be farther from the truth. In fact, Tea Party members often object that Republicans compromise on too many issues. A big tent leads to such disputation; it is called liberty. Valid arguments can be made to support a variety of positions. But it is a myth propagated by liberals that refusal to compromise is built into the DNA of conservatives. Call it projection or call it propaganda, but liberals -- led by the president -- have been the

Boston Cardinal Sean O’Malley made the news recently when he compared those of us who think our immigration laws ought to be honored with the anti-Catholic “Know-Nothings” of the nineteenth century. In the process, he aligned himself with the forces on the left that are out to destroy the Catholic Church. As a practicing Catholic myself, I will go easy on O’Malley and write off his historical gaps and odd alliances to naiveté.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s (R-Va.) ouster in a recent primary campaign was undoubtedly a signal to politicians of both established political brands.

The Obama administration’s claim to have been surprised by the wave of children flooding over out borders may turn out to be another political lie of the year. Sundance of Conservative Treehouse noticed a very peculiar advertisement: On January 29th of this year, the federal government posted an advertisement seeking bids for a vendor contract to handle “Unaccompanied Alien Children“. Not just any contract mind you, but a very specific contract – for a very specific number of unaccompanied minors: 65,000. • Why would DHS and ICE be claiming “surprise” by the current influx of unaccompanied minors on the border

Generation Opportunity, which seeks to reach young adults, has produced a terrific new TV commercial that makes the fiscal problems of the nation – normally a dry and abstract topic – vividly real.

Former President George W. Bush is remaining mum on the tragedy unfolding in Iraq. But as an army of bloodthirsty Islamists rampages across Iraq with the goal of establishing a 7th century religious tyranny -- a caliphate -- it´s worth recalling who years ago had predicted this would happen if the Democrats got their way. It was President George W. Bush and his top officials. They warned early on that Iraq was ripe for the rise of an Islamic caliphate -- either in a failed state created by Saddam Hussein or, they later contended, if the U.S.-led coalition bugged out without leaving

With a surprisingly wide margin of victory, Congressman James Lankford won the Oklahoma Republican U.S. Senate primary, defeating former Speaker of the State House of Representatives T.W. Shannon by 23 points and avoiding a runoff election. Lankford now becomes the prohibitive favorite to replace outgoing Senator Tom Coburn, who is retiring with two years remaining in his current term. This was a very different race from the one taking place in Mississippi. Despite negative ads run against Lankford by conservative groups, the Oklahoma contest was not an example of an “establishment” Republican or RINO versus a Tea Party candidate. In

Thad Cochran’s political resurrection began with a campaign shakeup and ended with a Hail Mary television ad. Just three weeks ago, in the dead of night on June 3, the Mississippi senator’s staff sat shaken and dejected, crestfallen at the results of a primary that deprived the six-term incumbent of an electoral majority. With Cochran forced into a runoff fight against an aggressive and energetic challenger, a dark mood shadowed his backers in Washington and Mississippi.Yet almost immediately, the Cochran coalition began bouncing back.

National conservative groups are angry after incumbent Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran pulled off a victory in the state’s GOP run-off — likely because of his campaign’s outreach to Democratic voters. “It’s disgraceful that self-described GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell, John McCain, the Chamber of Commerce and the NRSC would champion a campaign platform of pork barrel spending and insider deal-making, while recruiting Democrats to show up at the polls,” Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks said after the results came in. Tuesday’s closely-watched run-off came after conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel edged Cochran in votes in the initial election earlier this month.
