Paul Ryan’s Finest Hour
New York Sun, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 6/21/2014 11:03:03 AM

Call it Paul Ryan’s finest hour. It’s a video of the congressman from Wisconsin confronting the commissioner of Internal Revenue over the missing Lois Lerner emails. It’s easy to see why the clip is going viral on the Web. It is one of those rare moments when Congress loses its temper and a major figure says what the American people are thinking. They don’t believe Commissioner John Koskinen is telling the truth. They don’t believe him. Mr. Koskinen protested. No one believed that either. Mr. Ryan’s ire was triggered by the suggestion of one of the Democrats that Mr. Koskinen

Comments:
I´m wondering if Ryan already has the email and is just giving these IRS people and the WH just a bit more rope.

Paul Ryan has had several fine hours, and this was certainly one of them.

I´m hoping this will add fuel to the fire (figuratively speaking) that eliminates the IRS. Any agency with that much power, lack of oversight and inability to have criminal employees fired is bound to become corrupt.

American citizens should not fear that any part of government can harm them without due process, and due process is not what the IRS provided in it´s dealings.

A fair tax, flat tax, or whatever can reduce the IRS to a small number of clerks inputting data into the computers, with a small group of investigators to look into problems. Any charges against a citizen should go to the courts- like any other allegation of crime.

"Nobody believes you." = "There´s a cancer on the presidency."

I have been looking for the line that would define this president. I think Ryan finally made it.

Did you see how haughty and evil and slant eyed that guy got towards the end? Do you dare question me! Did you see him grin? Did you see when the stake was driven in the libs on the panel started getting testy? Of course, it´s their brother.

The only thing I would have hoped would have been different is instead of Ryan mentioning that some IT guys would disagree with the hard drive crash, is to have been more iron fisted about that fact, which underpins everything. It is IMPOSSIBLE that those emails were lost. IMPOSSIBLE. No other side discussion matters more than that central issue.

That guy made me want to puke. I bet he worked up through the ranks of the IRS. I could see him at an audit, looking with those evil snake eyes at someone who made a mistake on his taxes and threatening prison. You know he has done that, and gets off on it. Probably a sexual thing as well, the whole control/victim-sexual deal.

The GOP should use this as their platform for 2016 and knock it out of the park.

Amen, #10. Ryan is performing Kabuki theater for the conservative crowd. Trying to worm his way back in their good graces since he ticked conservatives off with his amnesty push. He knew the cameras were rolling and performed well.

Unless I see subpoenas and indictments, Ryan is full of sound and fury, signifying NOTHING.

Just look at us. It´s small potatoes to have one of our Congressmen actually say "I don´t believe you" in the face of laughable falsehoods. They aren´t even creative anymore - just blatant impossible to believe lies. And we leap at anything, anyone who will call them out. We are a voice crying in a wilderness, and the sound does nothing. So what, Mr. Ryan, what are you going to DO about it? Koskinen is not worried and that´s what worries me.

What is more outrageous than the bureaucrat lying to the American people, is the actions of the democrat committee members, who rather than trying to ascertain the facts, spent their time with statements designed to cover the facts and accuse republicans of harassing the IRS.
They have no intention of representing their constituents and stopping the abuse of the citizens by a rogue agency. They are complicit in the crime.

The smirking arrogance seen in Dem assets from State to the IRS demonstrate what the like-minded are saying and believing in private: total disdain not only for political enemies but for what the country is and stands for.

If they succeed in their criminality, the country loses. If they are actually caught, their efforts and methods will also do serious damage to the country and the values that sustain it.

What good does it do to ring the truth if all that achieves is the snark of GOP factions who give no credit for the confrontation?
As long as supposed GOP factions cling to slurs and labels why should anyone waste their time fighting the corruption?
The GOP harbors many who cling to the usual my way or the highway immovable mentality.

I´m very much against an effort to impeach Barack Obama. Yes, it would feel good. Yes, he has earned it. Yes, it would fail. So, what would be accomplished? That´s a rhetorical question, because the answer is a loss of the Oval Office in 2016 to Hillary Clinton or Elizabeth Warren because the electorate has been ginned up by a failed effort to remove the first black president.

Aiming the cannon isn´t going to scare enough senators into voting for conviction.

I voted Republican in 20101 because I fell for the story that Republicans could have a huge impact because they would CONTROL THE BUDGET. Either that was a pack of lies or they haven´t got the cojones. Slash the IRS budget by 50% and see if that jackass commissioner still has the same smug grin on his face.

BTW Cantor could have killed Obamacare in 2011 when Bachmann and King found $1.1B hidden. Ryan is another phony.

The grilling would have been perfect had Ryan come out of his chair and said "I don´t believe you, and taxpaying law abiding Americans shouldn´t have to believe you either. Further this committee should ask for every person in the chain of command of this so called destruction to appear before us. Everyone, even down to IT guys whose job it is to babysit the hardware that records and stores the data.

Reid: Southern border is secure
The Hill, by Alexander Bolton    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 7/15/2014 4:59:55 PM     Post Reply
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Tuesday asserted the Southern border is secure despite the massive surge of illegal minors from Central America that has overwhelmed federal agencies. “The border is secure,” he told reporters after the Senate Democrats’ weekly policy lunch. “[Sen.] Martin Heinrich [D-N.M.] talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.” Reid said lawmakers need to worry less about border security and focus instead on President Obama’s $3.7 billion request to help process the tens of thousands of children from Honduras, Guatemala

An internecine battle has broken out between the Obama administration and the School Nutrition Association (SNA) over the federal government’s requirements for school meal programs. The fight has gotten so nasty that Michelle Obama’s food policy czar, celebrity chef Sam Kass, who handed out awards at the SNA´s annual convention in 2012, was refused permission to speak at this year´s convention, held in Boston this week and attended by approximately 6,500 school nutrition workers.

No one from True The Vote, the highest profile organization targeted by the IRS in the scandal involving improper scrutiny of conservative-leaning non-profits, has been interviewed by the FBI or investigators from the Department of Justice, according to the group’s President, Catherine Engelbrecht. This stunning revelation comes just days after Attorney General Eric Holder rebuffed the suggestion that an independent investigation is needed into the growing scandal. Holder told ABC News this weekend that a special investigation was unnecessary because “career people” and FBI agents were “doing a good, professional job” investigating the matter.

The New York Times editorial board believes the border crisis is merely "a myth." In a weekend editorial, the Times said the "White House is getting it mostly right" on immigration and blasted Republicans, who are "throwing up roadblocks" with "dangerous overreaction." The Times praised the Obama administration´s request for $3.7 billion in aid to deal with a crisis they think is a "myth." "The besieged border is a myth, and the arrival of a few thousand weary refugee children on buses does not make the myth true," the Times wrote. "Republicans are feeding the cycle, stoking panic about a

Or “No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States”? Or “Excessive bail shall not be required”? Those are all famous limits on our government, for sure.

Whatever happened to the Obama administration’s guiding principle never to let a serious crisis go to waste? Ex-White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel pronounced this shockingly brazen political principle before a group of Wall Street executives in November 2008. He said this even before President Obama took office. It was after that historic election, a time when the president was riding high on a wave of good will and political euphoria that few American politicians have ever enjoyed. It was also a time when the president’s party controlled both chambers of Congress and could have approved just about any

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.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Inquiring minds wonder if there’s a “G” in the grading repertoire. And that does not stand for “good.” Pollster John Zogby has given President Obama an “F” this week for the White House performance on the global stage, and the researcher has no imminent good news for the president. “Some people have really bad weeks. Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff got an ‘F’ after the nation’s soccer team lost to Germany. But President Obama’s week was just as bad,” Mr. Zogby says. “Israel and the Palestinians are at war again. The president should have visited the U.S.-Mexican border, where so many immigrant children are in danger and so many

“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.

President Obama is known for being competitive on the basketball court, but he´s also apparently a cutthroat pool player. Gov. John Hickenlooper, D-Colo., told reporters at the National Governors Association meeting on Sunday that the president surprised him by beat him in two consecutive games. To add insult to injury, the two were playing at the Wynkoop Brewing Company, a bar that Hickenlooper co-founded. "You know I´ll tell ya -- the man is a shark," Hickenlooper told reporters, Time reports. "I was up a few balls. I felt pretty good. I was actually wondering whether how hard should I --

Where is the red line of impeachment? In theory, a red line might be located somewhere on a list of impeachable offenses – perhaps at the point where a certain number of transgressions is exceeded, or next to a specific instance because of its significance or impact. In reality, though, that red line exists along a spectrum of “political will.” As Andrew McCarthy explained: “You can have a thousand provable impeachable offenses, but before Congress may remove the president from power, there must be strong popular support – a public will that cuts across partisan and ideological lines.”
