Pelosi: ‘They Need a New
Technology System at the IRS’

National Review Online, by Joel Gehrke

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) regards the loss of former IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails only demonstrates that the agency needs to upgrade its technology, rather than a cause to suspect a cover-up related to the targeting of Tea Party groups. “What it convinces me [of] is that they need a new technology system at the IRS,” Pelosi told reporters. “They need to upgrade their technology, get it right, so that there’s no suspicion about what agenda anyone may have on that.” The IRS says that two years’ of Lerner’s emails were lost due to a hard drive

They think we will swallow anything.

The real problem is that the government is not spending enough money.

Next step? Find a way to blame it on George W. Bush.

This crew is really something. If the issues were not so serious, it could be a sitcom.

Once again the Progs beat the GOP to the toss. Boehner will cough up billions of our money to ´fix´ the IRS. If he doesn´t the GOP will take the blame for all that is wrong at that agency.

You´d think the Dems would get tired of slapping the GOP around but it never gets tiresome to them.

The technology didn´t fail unless the IRS people deliberately made it fail. IRS techs have come forward and described a competent, well funded IT system. It is required BY LAW that these systems be backed up. We would have to believe that Lerner´s system failed and the backup system failed and the systems of all the other people who´s email is "missing" also failed. For such a catastrophic failure, I´m surprised Washington is still standing because it would have taken a nuclear strike to do that much damage.

They need a new administration at the IRS, one that severely limits the abuses that have been rampant over the last few years. Further, the Congress needs to severely curb the IRS.

This is why people do not want their personal information in possession of the government. They cannot be trusted and they are apparently outside the reach of the law.

An explosion in a Nigerian shopping mall has killed at least 21 people just an hour before the national football team played Argentina in the World Cup. Witnesses said the blast left body parts scattered around the Emab Plaza in an upmarket district of Abuja, as billows of black smoke could be seen from a mile away. It turned what should have been a national celebration into a national tragedy as Nigeria secured its place in the World Cup´s knockout stages for the first time since 1998.

National Republican leaders are toasting primary season as a smashing success over activist conservatives that has put the hard right on the ropes and given the Washington GOP the slate of candidates it wanted for 2014. Those victories, however, have come at a staggering cost — and Republicans are painfully aware of the price of putting down an intraparty insurrection. Establishment-aligned groups have already spent some $23 million on independent expenditures propping up favored House and Senate candidates in contentious primaries, according to a POLITICO review of Federal Election Commission records. In comparison, that’s the same sum of money that Republican

Mohammad Gulab has been marked for death by the Taliban and is being actively "hunted" by fighters in the group. His crime is the aid he gave to "Lone Survivor" U.S. Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell. According to Vocativ, it was Gulab who discovered a severely wounded Luttrell by a waterfall in Afghanistan´s Kunar province in June 2005. Luttrell had "been shot twice and was bleeding profusely, his back was broken and he had shrapnel wounds in both of his legs." Gulab "took Luttrell to his home and protected him." And when "insurgents" came and demanded Luttrell be released to them,

The Orange County Sheriff´s Department has joined over 140 counties and municipalities countrywide in ending the practice of holding deportable inmates, including illegal immigrants, past their scheduled release dates in order to turn them over to federal immigration authorities. The sheriff´s department had previously held inmates up to 48 hours past their scheduled release dates so that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) could take those who would potentially be deported, including illegal aliens, into custody directly from jail. Now, the sheriff´s department will call ICE shortly before these inmates leave jail so that immigration authorities can pick them up as they

House Speaker John Boehner announced Wednesday he plans to file suit against President Obama over his alleged abuse of executive power. "This is not about impeachment -- it´s about him faithfully executing the laws of this country," Boehner said. The speaker had been weighing such a lawsuit in recent days, over concerns that Obama exceeded his constitutional authority with executive actions. The lawsuit has not yet been filed. But asked Wednesday whether he intended to proceed, Boehner said: "I am." The decision to sue would still have to be formally approved by a group of House leaders. Presuming that step is cleared, the suit

It has been persuasively argued that President Obama is impeachable on many grounds. Having joked that he could do anything he wants, Obama is guilty of running roughshod over the Constitution, bypassing Congress and governing by executive decree, stuffing his administration with Muslim Brotherhood operatives, making common cause with America’s enemies and betraying its allies, promoting the global warming scam at enormous cost to the taxpayer, accepting illicit campaign donations, failing to defend U.S. soil against illegal border crossings (in direct contravention of Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution), being in contempt of federal court for his oil-drilling moratorium

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said on Tuesday that the federal government is screening illegal immigrant children flooding across the United States-Mexico border for contagious diseases. Numerous doctors have expressed concerns that the border crisis can lead to a public health crisis. At a House Homeland Security hearing concerning the unaccompanied illegal immigrant children flooding across the border from Central America, Johnson said the federal government is conducting public health screenings "for all those who come into our facilities for any symptoms of contagious diseases or other possible public health concerns."

When Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was released in a swap for five Taliban prisoners three weeks ago and celebrated by the White House as a hero, his fellow Army platoon leaders came forward with details about how he was "captured" as a prisoner. Bergdahl was accused of being a deserter who violated his oath and left on his own accord by the men who served with him. At the time of their statements, State Department Deputy Press Secretary Marie Harf was asked during a press conference about the knowledge the platoon members had surrounding Bergdahl´s alleged desertion.

Republicans dropped a hammer on IRS Commissioner John Koskinen during a testy hearing covering the disappearance of emails tied to the agency´s tea party targeting scandal. The emails, covering the period January 2009 to April 2011, belonged to embattled former official Lois Lerner and could shed light on whether an expansive scheme to single out conservative groups for special scrutiny was guided by members of Congress or administration officials outside the IRS. ´The committee requested all of Lois Lerner’s emails over a year ago,´ said House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep.

A week after an NBC News poll showed that the American people had lost faith in Obama´s competence and ability to lead, a new CBS News/New York Times poll has even worse news for a president embattled by his own incompetence, arrogance, and failed policies. In just one month, the president´s job approval rating has shifted a full 9 points against him. Though Obama was still upside on approval by 5 points (43-48%) back in May, he now faces a 14 point deficit of 40-54%.

Noted management expert and Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen was apparently called out of retirement — like the Ted Williams of evasive, unapologetic bureaucrats — to destroy what is left of his agency’s credibility. At immediate issue is two years of subpoenaed e-mails from former IRS official Lois Lerner to outside agencies, lost in a convenient computer crash. The possible involvement of other agencies is one focus of a congressional investigation into the heightened IRS scrutiny of conservative nonprofit groups before the 2012 election. In recent congressional testimony, Koskinen admitted that the e-mails

‘R-E-S-P-E-C-T,” the song goes. It is easy enough to spell, but for some vocal critics of President Barack Obama, it seems exceedingly hard to do. As the president moves toward the land of the lame ducks, his political enemies are calling for blood. That’s no shocker at this stage of a presidency. In this case, the cuts go deeper. For some, it is not enough to disagree. Some high-status public figures seem determined to demean, denigrate and ridicule the president of the United States.

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

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. Even on that gloomy night of June 3, Cochran adviser Stuart Stevens was insisting to staffers: “We’re

What we have with Obama is a president choosing decline.” He continued, “We are in a position to dominate again, but we have a president who doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism, American greatness, and he has chosen for America to retreat from the Middle East, to not lift a finger in places like Ukraine, basically to make us one nation among others.” Krauthammer said Obama is comfortable with
