The sleeper case that could
bust open the IRS scandals

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

In the absence of a special prosecutor, the best opportunity for piercing the veil of secrecy and evasion that surrounds the IRS handling of groups perceived as enemies of the Obama administration lies in civil litigation. (snip)The absence of any official judicial inquiry into the inner workings of the IRS processes is why it is so important to note that yesterday saw the beginning of the discovery phase in the lawsuit by Z-Street a pro-Israel organization that was told its application for tax exempt status was being delayed because: …these cases are being sent to a special unit in the DC

Now this is intriguing. "Spoliation" is something I heard about for the first time when Trey Gowdy asked Koskinen if he knew what spoliation was? He didn´t. We can add that word to our lexicon of words we may be hearing a lot of in the coming days.

The potential destruction of evidence, by becoming a separate tort, opens the door for judicial inquiry into the IRS destruction of evidence. Armed with subpoenas and able to examine and cross examine people under oath, Z-Street has the potential to bust open what really went on at the IRS.

So if the front door won´t work in the present Lois Lerner IRS situation, let the Z-street case bring us in the side door. If it´s good for Democrats to sneak in the back doors, we can play that game, too.

Here´s hoping and praying someone, no matter their motivation, will blow the IRS´ and Lerner´s stonewalling to kingdom come.

Keep praying, It´s working....

Interesting article and case. We need about a dozen more tort trials like this one to peel away the egregious layers of lies. And I agree that civil cases (as opposed to criminal ones that depend on Holder´s InJustice Department) are the best path to justice here.

"…these cases are being sent to a special unit in the DC office to determine whether the organization’s activities contradict the Administration’s public policies."

Seriously! Can ANYONE, even Democrats, excuse this behavior???

The federal judges in the civil suits must be pressed by the plaintiffs to appoint special masters to investigate the IRS´s handling of evidence covered by the rulings already made by the federal judges. The federal judges in the civil suits are the only hope of getting behind the Obama thugocracy´s stonewall.

"Strangely enough no major media outlet covered the opening of the discovery phase of this case. Only Gretchen Carlson of Fox News had the wit to notice, and interviewed Lori Lowenthal Marcus, head of Z-Street (and an AT contributor)"

The above last statement in the article tells all you need to know. Here is the Youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

The MSM is in full agreement with the Obama administration to cover up all proof and allegations of doing anything illegal. The IRS has already destroyed or think they have destroyed any and all proof of illegal activity.

If there is not a Special Prosecutor appointed there will never be any criminal charges brought against anyone in or out of the Obama administration or the bureaucracy full of dedicated criminal communists just like their leader Obama.

Paying fines with taxpayer dollars is not punishment that will put an end to these communists in government. The only remedy for this is jail time and loss of any and all government benefits.

This is an extremely interesting article that ties to Trey Gowdy´s accusing the IRS of spoliation - willful destruction of evidence - which is a crime in itself.

I am glad to see Gretchen Carlson get some credit. Her program is often very interesting, and she is neither a cutesy airhead nor a strident ranter. She does a great job of getting into issues and current events that others - even at Fox - seem to miss.

Jeanine Pirro said it last night in Sevierville: there is enough circumstantial evidence in the IRS case to warrant an independent investigation.

This is a criminal matter, not a civil one.

The important thing is that when Dear Leader Barack Hussein illegally uses the IRS to cripple his political opposition, he does it with good intentions, because he believes in helping people. Dear Leader Barack Hussein´s good intentions about helping people complete us. That´s why we will love and protect him, no matter what laws he breaks.

#9, while all of us agree that this is indeed a case worthy of criminal prosecution, the fact is that Holder will not allow that to happen. And so pursuit of civil tort is the best strategy here. And that is precisely the point of this article.

Unlike the congressional investigations, such civil cases would allow the attorney for the plaintiffs to invoke discovery proceedings, which are lengthy, detailed questioning sessions that are likely to both uncover critical details and also trip up the lying defendants.

Go for the civil cases. Flush them out and sue the heck out of them.

Isn´t it interesting that the biggest whiners about being discriminated against (Blacks), are the worst Nazis when they obtain power. Thanks to the Pro-Israel group for bringing this to light. An ethnic group that were incinerated in ovens by the millions by another Nazi group.

The great thing is exactly as the article says, that the discovery process will expose information that will lead to other legal actions, including criminal ones. Even if the IRS decides to stonewall they can be held accountable and possibly other groups can go after them as well.

I´ll bet they find quite a bit more than a smidgen of corruption. Of course the trail to the White House might have been eradicated so the IRS could take the hit for its actions without directly implicating BO. That would be disappointing but it would further prove that BO´s leadership is inept and the people under him are corrupt.

Of course it is possible that some of those emails do surface from some other source. That would be delicious. Proven conspiracy to hide a criminal act. I would love to see Lerner in a prison outfit.

Sounds somewhat familiar to the O.J. case. He was found "innocent" in his criminal trial but was found guilty as he** in his civil trial. And in a civil trial, the rules for guilty are somewhat weaker than in a criminal trial(prepondence of evidence vs beyond a doubt). What we are hoping for here is for the TRUTH to oome out and be presented to the public. And leading to some criminal trials and convictions wouldn´t hurt either. Now, we just pray that the attorneys for Z-Street will press the case post haste. The faster, the better.

Wakeupcall BRILLIANT and so many other Ldoters, too !
THIS IS THE PLACE Lucianne, the aggregator extraordinaire.
This is the article to re-send to EVERYbody you know, smart partially awake or just plain commie fools.

The giant mistake of the IRS was inflicting their bully ways on the most alert, aware dissenting, large group of people in America. Throughout our lifetimes, the IRS has reigned Nazi supreme because THEY ATTACK ONLY INDIVIDUALS or SINGLE CORPORATIONS (that aren´t too lobbied big).

They blew it, Obama cabal, blew it picking on America´s true spirit, The Tea Party, conservatives, a few honest Republicans, free market advocates, Ayn Rand Objectivists, libertarians, bikers, honest gun owners, Christians of all sorts, Jews for Israel, the IRS tampered with the guts of America, and for the first time in our lives, they are exposed as the criminal enterprise they are.

All the main media NOT openly reporting this explosion is the unwitting act of automatically convicting themselves of State Propaganda adherence, by not touching, by censoring this one, by their stupefied silence, the faker Pelley Sawyer Williams TRAITORS TO THE TRUTH are being exposed for all time.

LOOK, Diane Sawyer, may actually have a conscience, SHE´S DROPPING OUT JUST AS THE SXXT HITS THE FAN.

Every possible criminal and civil approach is correct, even the ones that have little chance, are a part of the flow and activity.

This is the time of opportunity.

Homer and Jethro had a FABULOUS SONG about pressure,
words they kept repeating in this cheery song.

Dig it up, it´s really spirited and funny !

And that´s what´s happening in the secret halls of the IRS,
where no citizen is allowed to travel.

Holder does not care about this. They will let this case move forward and the IRS take the blame as incompetent and not complying with the regulation to keep all email. They will even pay the damages. The IRS comes off with another black eye. Big Deal, what else is new. Meantime, Lerner, Obama get away with it. The main goal of Holder is to protect Obama from fallout of being involved. If the IRS goes broke paying damages and Obama is never associated, them mission accomplished.

Very interesting. I hope it produces results and damning testimony.

However, here´s the thing about civil cases: Many of them settle before much is accomplished. I hope these plaintiffs have the staying power and resources not to cave for a meaningless, taxpayer-funded settlement payoff.

The conservative commentators who advocated a “path to citizenship” after the 2012 election bear partial blame for the current wave of illegal immigrants from Central America.

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. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“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.

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night. […] “Other than Alaska, we have completed our work on Senate primaries

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

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
