The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will hear testimony from IRS Commissioner John Koskinen in a rare, prime-time hearing Monday night. "We have some serious questions for the commissioner," Committee Chair Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) told Fox News Monday morning. "The biggest one being, you came before us, you said you´d tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, under oath. Do you believe you told the whole truth? Of course, the answer is, he did not tell the whole truth." Issa said Koskinen "knew that he had made false statements to Congress" when he failed

Another show and performance by both party.
If they were serious, Lois Lerner would be in jail along with the rest who took the 5th.

Reporter’s Case Poses Dilemma
for Justice Dept.
New York Times, by Jonathan Mahler    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/27/2014 11:38:38 PM     Post Reply
On Dec. 31, 2005, the C.I.A.’s acting general counsel, John A. Rizzo, received an urgent phone call from the White House about a chapter in James Risen’s coming book, “State of War,” detailing a botched C.I.A. operation in Iran. The administration wanted Mr. Rizzo to contact Sumner Redstone — the chairman of Viacom, owner of the book’s publisher, Simon & Schuster — and ask him to keep the book off the market. Mr. Rizzo never made the call. It was too late. Copies of “State of War” had already reached bookstores. The Bush administration soon identified the man it believed

Mayfield´s death ´puts an
exclamation point´ on election
Clarion-Ledger (Jackson MS), by Sam R. Hall    Original Article

Mark Mayfield´s death is tragic in and of itself, but it also provides a sobering, painful and chilling reminder that the race for U.S. Senate from Mississippi went far off the rails. I talked with Pat Bruce, president of the Madison County Conservative Coalition, minutes after the news broke. She answered the phone between sobs, understandably in shock. As we talked, she oscillated between hurt and anger and disbelief. Then there were moments of lucidity, when none of it — the entire race, much less Mayfield´s death — amounted to anything approaching the seriousness that led to today´s tragic news.

U.S. flying armed drones over
Baghdad, Pentagon says
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/27/2014 10:45:26 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — The U.S. has armed drones flying over Baghdad to protect U.S. troops that recently arrived to assess Iraq’s deteriorating security, the Pentagon said Friday. The military for more than a week has been flying manned and unmanned aircraft over Iraq, averaging a few dozen sorties daily for reconnaissance. The decision to arm some of the drones follows the deployment to Baghdad of troops who will advise and assist Iraqi counterterrorism forces. “The reason that some of those aircraft are armed is primarily for force protection reasons now that we have introduced into the country some military advisers whose

Obama’s new boogeyman: The press corps

MINNEAPOLIS – Move over, Republicans. President Obama has a new boogeyman: The media. During his two-day tour here, the president has let out his frustrations on the fourth estate for failing, in his view, to cover serious issues facing the American people and instead focusing on the frivolous. “If you watch the news, you’d think, ‘Okay, Washington is a mess and the basic attitude is that everybody’s crazy,” Obama told a crowd of 3,500 here at the Lake Harriet Band Shell. Noting that he met with a local resident to discuss her difficulties paying her bills, Obama said: “You don’t

NYT Admits: ´Somewhat Late´ on
IRS Story, But Editor Swears
´We´ve Paid Copious Attention´

The New York Times´s public editor on Friday responded to criticism about the paper´s coverage of the IRS scandal, admitting: "The Times was somewhat late in beginning to cover the latest development about the lost emails." An analysis by the Media Research Center´s Jeffrey Meyer on Thursday found that "in the past 6 months (183 days), the New York Times has published only 13 news items on the IRS’ targeting of Tea Party groups." Public editor Margaret Sullivan questioned David Joachim, the Times´s Washington-based reporter, on the scant coverage. He offered an equivalence that seemed dismissive of complaints: "One side

Startling Report: Mexican Military
Chopper Crosses Into Arizona and Fires
At US Border Patrol Agents
Independent Journal Review, by Justen Charters    Original Article

A Mexican military helicopter is shaking up the immigration debate. On Thursday, the chopper was conducting a drug-related operation and crossed the border into Arizona. Then – in U.S. airspace – it fired two shots at border patrol agents. KOVA News4 reports: The incident occurred west of the San Miguel Gate on the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation. The agents were unharmed. The helicopter went back into Mexico. Mexico then contacted U.S. authorities and apologized for the incident. While it’s fortunate that no one was injured or worse, the fact that something like this was even possible raises more “real time”

CNBC Panel Goes Awkwardly Silent
When Host ‘Outs’ Apple CEO as Gay
Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/27/2014 4:28:47 PM     Post Reply
Things got a bit awkward for CNBC’s Squawk on the Street when one of the show’s co-hosts accidentally “outed” Apple CEO Tim Cook as being gay. New York Times columnist James R. Stewart joined the panel to discuss his latest piece profiling John Browne, the former CEO of BP, and his “tortured life” living as the gay chief executive of a Fortune 500 company. “You’d think CEOs especially are measured by objective criteria, financial performance,” Stewart said, and yet there’s a corporate culture that prevents powerful gay men from going public. “There are gay CEOs in major companies, and I

MINNEAPOLIS–President Obama says he’s been itching to “say what’s on my mind” about Republicans in Washington. And today on the banks of Lake Harriet he let loose, turning an official event on the economy into a rally for Democrats in the midterm campaign. “So far this year Republicans in Congress have blocked or voted down every single idea to strengthen the middle class,” Obama told a crowd of 3,500. “Don’t boo,” he quipped. “I want you to vote.” Obama accused Republicans of deliberate inaction, of being “tone deaf,” focusing more on elections and “media sound bites” than progress. “They don’t

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama is sending his best wishes to Muslims in the U.S. and around the world on the start of the holy month of Ramadan (RAH´-mah-dahn). Obama says in a statement that the U.S. is grateful for Muslim-American organizations, individuals and businesses that work to reduce the income gap and poverty through charitable efforts and programs that provide education, skills and health care to students, workers and families. The Muslim holy month starts this weekend and is marked by daily fasting from dawn to sunset. It ends with the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Fitr (ayd ahl-FIH´-tur). Obama says he´s

Border Patrol Agent: ‘If the

Amnesty, Don’t Believe Them’

Albert Spratte, the sergeant-at-arms of the National Border Patrol Council, Local 3307 in the Rio Grande Valley, said the Obama administration is largely to blame for waves of illegal immigrants that have been flooding the Southwest U.S. border since February, saying the government opened the door for the crisis by making it “clear they’re not going to deport people.” Spratte, who was speaking with CNSNews.com as a representative of the union, further said “we don’t have control of the border,” and if the Obama administration claims it is not in effect giving amnesty to the illegals, then “don’t believe them.”

New Yorkers to pay $4.9M legal fees
for 1,380 illegals facing deportation
Washington Times (D.C), by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/27/2014 11:37:48 AM     Post Reply
New York City’s newest budget includes enough money to pay the legal fees for about 1,380 illegal immigrants who are detained and facing deportation. Within the budget is a $4.9 million set-aside for the New York Immigrant Family Unity Project, a program that just wrapped a one-year test phase and was deemed a success by City Council, Breitbart reported. Under the program, taxpayers help cover the legal expenses for illegals in jail who should be deported, but are fighting it. The city’s renewal of the plan makes it the first jurisdiction in the nation with a tax-paid disbursement dedicated solely
