The IRS´s stunning and shameful
record-keeping hypocrisy

The Week, by Edward Morrisey

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/18/2014 9:04:14 AM

The IRS´s recent claim that two years worth of emails from Lois Lerner — the official at the center of the scandal regarding the tax agency´s apparent targeting of conservative groups — evaporated due to a computer crash seems too convenient to accept at face value. It´s so ridiculous that since the announcement, a fantasy sequence has kept playing out in my head. Imagine IRS agents descending on a company or perhaps even a lone One Percenter to review tax records, suspecting some sort of fraud or other crime. "We´re from the IRS," says an agent dressed straight out of

Has the Sharpton group of left-leaning entities or the Jesse Jackson corporate shake downers ever been audited?

The reason this scandal will go nowhere is because all of the lefties, knowing full-well that the targeting was/is illegal, are secretly high-fiving the preezy for doing it. It´s just another weapon in the left´s arsenal to silence any opposition to their agenda.

If those responsible for this at the IRS aren´t prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law (and hopefully hanged) - then every lawyer in future tax cases should claim ´equal protection under the law´ and inform Ithe judge all the records were ´lost´ just as the IRS ´lost´ records.

Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Adam Kredo    Original Article

The roommate of released U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl testified Wednesday about the freed soldier’s questionable mental state and demanded that Bergdahl be prosecuted as a deserter for the “ultimate betrayal” of allegedly leaving his post in Afghanistan and endangering fellow U.S. troops. Retired Spc. Cody Full, who served with Berdgahl in the Blackfoot Company and was his roommate, declared that Bergdahl’s “desertion was premeditated” and that the released U.S. soldier “should not be characterized as serving with honor and distinction,” as Obama administration officials have maintained. “The facts tell me that Bergdahl’s desertion

NEW YORK– Mayor Bill de Blasio says New York City is “constantly vigilant” against any terror threat posed by the recent violence in Iraq. The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, has already captured major cities in Iraq and is threatening its capital.

A Democratic political operative says he is working with Mississippi Conservatives PAC to drum up votes for U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran. James "Scooby Doo" Warren said he has put together a get-out-the-vote (GOTV) plan and is "putting it in place across the whole state." Warren said he is not working with the Cochran campaign itself but for the PAC and Bishop Ronnie Crudup Sr. Crudup is the pastor at New Horizon Church, which shares an address and chief financial officer with a newly formed super PAC that ran print advertising in the primary supporting Cochran.

Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) weighed in on the relitigation of the Iraq War Wednesday morning, rolling his eyes at a Wall Street Journal op-ed by Dick and Liz Cheney that argued President Barack Obama had let the situation in Iraq go to pot. “If there’s one thing this country does not need, is that we should be taking advice from Dick Cheney on wars,” he said. “Being on the wrong side of Dick Cheney is being on the right side of history.

"You cannot win a battle against radical Islamic terrorism if you´re unwilling to utter the words ´radical Islamic terrorism,´" Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said on Tuesday. Coincidentally, on the same day Cruz made that comment, Secretary of State John Kerry said that "extreme poverty" breeds terrorism. Cruz was talking about the Benghazi attack with CNN´s Erin Burnett on Tuesday evening. He noted that the Obama administration, in explaining the attack to the American people, "edited out every reference to al Qaeda and radical Islamic terrorism."

SUISUN CITY-After two decades serving his country overseas in Japan, one marine got the welcome home surprise of his life. His entire home was remodeled – without him knowing about it. “If I had 21 more years to give, I would, because I love this country,” Marine Corps Sgt. Jacinto Bernardo said. The last time Bernardo saw his Suisun City home, it had a dying lawn in the back and was in desperate need of a paint job But all of that changed due in large part to Bernardo’s friend Jeremy Epperson. “You know I didn’t want Jac, who had spent

Faced with a disastrous first week of her presidential campaign book tour, Hillary Clinton is attempting to rescue her standing by distancing herself from her own performance as secretary of state. On Benghazi, she backed away from the hard line she took in her book on the deaths of 4 Americans due to admittedly inadequate security. Ann Gearan and Philip Rucker of the Washington Post write: There are still too many unanswered questions about the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday, even as she welcomed the capture of a

The White House on Tuesday unveiled efforts to expand protection of vast areas of the Pacific Ocean controlled by the United States from over fishing and environmental damage. President Barack Obama´s proposal, to go into effect later this year, would create a vast marine sanctuary and is part of an effort to safeguard more ocean territory, which is under threat from several factors, including overfishing and climate change, the White House said. The announcement, part of the president´s national ocean policy, coincided with an oceans conference held by the State Department on Monday and Tuesday at which Secretary of State John

In an email this evening, a veteran publishing source calls the latest Hillary Clinton book, Hard Choices, a memoir of her State Department years, a "bomb." The source is referring to the early but underwhelming sales figures. "Between us, they are nervous at S&S [Simon & Schuster]," says the source, who gave permission for his email to be published. "Sales were well below expectations and the media was a disaster." According to this source, a Simon & Schuster insider, "They sold 60,000 hard covers first week and 24,000 ebooks." The publishing house was "hoping and praying for 150,000 print first week."

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.

Wikipedia has an article describing the six times Republican politicians suggested impeaching Barack Obama, the most serious of which was a hearing by the House Judiciary Committee “formally titled ‘The President’s Constitutional Duty to Faithfully Execute the Laws,’ that has been viewed as an attempt to begin justifying impeachment proceedings”. (Snip) The problem with the “Obama is unimpeachable” argument is that he has already been impeached as Leader of the Free World. Any observer of Obama’s collapse will have noted his marginalization in international councils. Britain flatly refused to go along with him in enforcing a Red Line in Syria.

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

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,

Hardly anyone accepts the IRS’ claim to have lost two years of Lois Lerner’s emails. Those most familiar with government record retention requirements, and the technology used, probably are the most skeptical. The supposedly lost emails cover January 2009 to April 2011, the period when Lerner is suspected of targeting conservative groups with heightened and invasive scrutiny. Those emails also pertain to communications Lerner may have had with agencies other than the Internal Revenue Service. That’s key, because many suspect that the Obama White House knew about, and may have coordinated, the targeting.

Highly organized and bloodthirsty, the radical Islamist army called ISIS took but a few days to subjugate the cities of northern Iraq as it dreams of taking over the entire country — while President Obama played it cynically cool. The group’s stunning, barbaric march prompted the President on Friday to offer to review a range of options because America has “a stake in making sure that these jihadists are not getting a permanent foothold in either Iraq or Syria.” Returned now to the White House from a long-weekend family vacation in California, the President must face the awful reality that he dodged

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 an interview with Canadian network CBC, Clinton said she’s “well aware” of the expectation women have for her to run. “I’m incredibly touched by it and feel responsible because of it,” she said. “And I know that it’s important that we break that highest and hardest glass ceiling.
