On the IRS Emails, the Plot Thickens
Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/22/2014 7:00:35 PM

It has emerged over the last few days that at the time of Lois Lerner’s hard drive crash, the IRS had a contract with a company called Sonasoft (“Email archiving done right.”) Sonasoft promoted its relationship with the IRS in 2009: “If the IRS uses Sonasoft products to backup their servers why wouldn’t you choose them to protect your servers?” So why doesn’t that solve the problem of the missing IRS emails? Because the IRS canceled its contract with Sonasoft in September 2011, a couple of months after Lerner’s hard drive crash. Everyone seems to assume that Sonasoft would have

The Sonasoft contract was canceled in September 2011 but who did the backup of the IRS files after that? That would be good to know and then be able to subpoena their files. Perhaps the new company would have received all the Sonasoft backup files. This is getting sillier by the day. When will someone be honest enough to get to the bottom of this--there must be someone in the IRS who knows what happened and isn´t afraid.
The longer this goes on, more people will suspect the IRS and white house of colluding and it doesn´t bode well for the country.

If you have a contract to back up e-mails, you are committed to keep keep the ones already in your system. Whoever gets the new contract starts with the new e-mails on the start date of th contract. Think of a grain storage facility. You wouldn´t dump the grain when the contract runs out.

So they had backup that is all we need to know. It just makes it worse for the IRS
in that they had missing data and decided
to destroy what they had. So hard drive on
her computer has nothing at all to do
with missing mail. A friend of mine had
thousands of Email dumped to her computer
when the IP she had was bought by another
IP. Years of mail from her old IP was just
sent to her.

Well, it´s perfectly obvious that the Obama administration is lying - yet again. Like Paul Ryan, I don´t believe a thing that IRS commissioner told the House either. This is getting to be a mighty thick "plot." In fact it´s an outrageous scandal that needs to addressed.

The House needs to draft and vote on articles of impeachment so that they will be ready when it becomes unavoidable for the Senate to vote on them. There is already enough for the Senate to convict, even without the mountain of damning evidence that is sure to come. It is now the responsibility of Congress to act; they cannot delay any longer. This scandal has become outrageous - and dangerous to this country and the rule of law.

If the House votes out articles of impeachment, a President is impeached, i.e. accused of high crimes or misdemeanors. Then the Senate holds a trial...and it takes a 2/3 vote of the Senate to convict and remove a President from office.

It is foolish to talk about impeachment unless the Republicans take control of the Senate in November.

And even if we do get a majority, it is unlikely we will get the required 2/3 vote unless at least a few Democrats decide that they are American first and progressive/socialists second.

What is scary is that neither Obama,nor any democratic senator not up for reelection this time seems to give a hoot about public opinion......only logical conclusion is that they expect the country to collapse before 2016.

If "the extent of the cover-up reveals the seriousness of the crime", then the Obama administration is making the Corleones look like pikers. The more breathtakingly brazen the IRS cover-up gets, the more it points straight up to the top.

Even if the GOP doesn´t have the guts to impeach King Barack (though it has far more to work with than Watergate prosecutors ever had) it could at least make sure he goes down as the worst of the lawbreaking, corrupt presidents who´ve sullied American history. That, at least, would be something, and the evidence is there on a golden platter.

Want I want to know is - why are the Republicans acting like they´ve got lard for brains and playing along with this ´dog ate the hard drive and six others that you wanted´ farce when they should be competent enough to know about off site backups and subpoenaed it, along with the original drives, moons ago.

If they are unclued about backups, they all need to be fired now.
They surely are NOT competent enough for anything else.

The Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson returned to McAllen Monday, one week after his first visit, to declare that the Border Patrol and other supporting federal agencies are doing "heroic" work, given the circumstances. In a brief news conference following a visit to the McAllen Border Patrol station on Military Road, Johnson said that the agency is "keeping an eye on the ball," and securing American borders from an influx of immigrants, particularly coming from Central America. Johnson held his news conference in McAllen moments after President Obama made remarks in the Rose Garden in Washington in which he

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, criticized for manipulating temperature records to create a warming trend, has now been caught warming the past and cooling the present. July 2012 became the hottest month on record in the U.S. during a summer that was declared “too hot to handle” by NASA scientists. That summer more than half the country was experiencing drought and wildfires had scorched more than 1.3 million acres of land, according to NASA. According to NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in 2012, the “average temperature for the contiguous U.S. during July was 77.6°F, 3.3°F above the 20th century average,

The Supreme Court on Monday weakened Obamacare´s controversial contraception mandate, ruling 5-4 that some employers cannot be forced to cover birth control as part of their health insurance plans. The majority opinion, written by conservative Justice Samuel Alito, said such a mandate infringes on religious freedom, and therefore can be waived by certain business owners. But in a blistering, 35-page dissent, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, joined by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, lambasted the majority opinion—delivered by five male justices—as "a decision of startling breadth" that would allow corporations to "opt out of any law … they judge incompatible with their sincerely held

President Barack Obama says he´s done waiting for House Republicans to act on immigration. He says he now plans to act on his own. Obama announced his intention Monday to take executive action. Obama says there are enough Republicans and Democrats in the House to pass an immigration bill today, and says he would sign it. But Obama says he´s waited for more than a year to give House Speaker John Boehner (BAY´-nur) space to act. He says Boehner informed him last week that the House won´t vote on immigration this year.

Former IRS attorney Jennifer O’Connor, who now works in the White House Counsel’s office, donated a total of $12,831 to Democrat candidates and parties between 2008 and 2012, which included donations to the Barack Obama campaign and to the Hillary Clinton campaign, according to records from OpenSecrets.gov. O’Connor made headlines when she evaded questions about the IRS-Tea Party scandal at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on Tuesday, June 24. Oversight Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) subpoenaed O’Connor to testify after the White House initially declined to make her available on a voluntary basis.

The bodies of three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped in the West Bank earlier this month have been found north of the city of Hebron, a source confirmed to ABC News today. Hamas, the Palestinian militant group accused by Israel of taking the boys, has denied kidnapping the teens, though senior Israeli and Palestinian officials agree that the abductors were likely tied to -- or part of -- Hamas but operating without orders from the organization´s leadership. One of the teens, 16-year-old Naftali Frenkel, had dual U.S.-Israeli citizenship and his family is from Brooklyn, N.Y. The two others were Gilad

The White House is trying to have its cake and eat it, too. In Minnesota on Thursday and Friday, the administration staged photo ops of President Obama at a hamburger joint, an ice cream parlor, and a grocery store. Then, in two speeches on the economy and at a fundraiser, he complained that what we in the White House press corps should have been covering was the serious stuff he had to say on jobs, the economy, and other substantive issues (which we did, of course). Just because you´re the leader of the free world doesn´t mean you get to

By every account Republicans face a huge disadvantage in comparison to Democrats with the Latino electorate. But a long-term engagement and outreach effort promises to make all the difference, a difference in which Democrats have more to lose and Republicans have much to gain. Even the most novice political observer can see that years of work in Latino communities have paid off for Democrats. Indeed, the party has in some ways enjoyed an open field, and decades of political outreach, presence in the communities and positive brand building around liberal ideas have allowed the party to build a formidable front

Facebook’s News Feed—the main list of status updates, messages, and photos you see when you open Facebook on your computer or phone—is not a perfect mirror of the world. But few users expect that Facebook would change their News Feed in order to manipulate their emotional state. We now know that’s exactly what happened two years ago. For one week in January 2012, data scientists skewed what almost 700,000 Facebook users saw when they logged into its service.

The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States. The proposed project would have extended from Alberta, Canada to Illinois, transporting approximately 400,000 barrels of crude oil per day. Estimated cost is $1.7 billion. But Obama rejected the plan in 2011 and 2014. Democrats are beholden to the radical green movement – the poor and middle class be damned. Now this… Canada pulled the plug on Keystone and will

Edward Klein’s book about the animosity between the Clintons and Obamas, “Blood Feud” (Regnery Publishing), rocketed up the best-seller charts since it was featured in The Post last Sunday. Here, in another exclusive excerpt, Klein ­describes how Bill’s health is a preoccupation of the Clintons. A pair of black, armor-plated SUVs swung into a suburban cul-de-sac and crunched to a stop in the driveway of the Clintons’ home in Chappaqua, New York. A wall of burly Secret Service agents jumped out and surrounded the man who emerged from the lead vehicle. It was mid-summer 2013, and Bill Clinton looked shrunken and weary.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) vowed to crush the Tea Party, and with help from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) in Kentucky, he did, and nationally, he will. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has sent the Tea Party to the back benches, and after the recent defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), is his successor any different than him? No. Did anything change? No. The Tea Party is not being done in by Democrats; it is being done in by the party of big business, crony capitalism, big money from insider Wall Street and big banks, the Chamber of Commerce and the corporate lobbying wing of the Tea Party's real nemesis:

As thousands of disease-riddled criminals storm across our borders, is it really time to mince words? President Obama appears to have an Agenda for America that stinks worse than a Border Patrol bus depot crammed with urine-drenched illegals. Is the man trying to protect and defend us, or does he want us to kick the bucket, run down the curtain, and join the choir invisible? On January 29, 2014, the Department of Homeland Security advertised for a vendor to escort 65,000 “unaccompanied alien children,” indicating that they not only knew the alien invasion was coming, they planned it.

I am rapidly coming to the preliminary conclusion that Elizabeth Warren will be the Democrats’ 2016 standard bearer. Hillary Clinton is just too unlikable (remember that Barack Obama called her “likable enough” in one of the most memorable back handed compliments of recent political memory), and too transparently greedy, self-serving, and out of touch. Not to mention the appalling foreign affairs crises the United States faces in the wake of her term as Secretary of State. Her brand is tarnished.
