Department of Justice: We Heard About
IRS Missing Emails On The News

Daily Caller, by Patrick Howley

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/18/2014 7:13:58 AM

James Cole, deputy attorney general in the Department of Justice, testified Thursday that the DOJ heard about the destruction of IRS officials’ emails in the news, even though DOJ has formally been investigating the IRS for more than a year. “I think we learned about it after that, from press accounts,” Cole told House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee chairman Rep. Jim Jordan at a hearing Thursday on the DOJ’s response to the wave of computer crashes at the IRS that wiped out seven different employees’ hard drives.

Is there a lock on computers where different IDs and passwords can be used to retrieve email or do they all have separate email servers for their 112,000 plus employees.
If off site backup service was cancelled two weeks AFTER the Lerner crash, why has the back up server not been compelled to submit copies of emails?

The DOJ has been investigating for over a year and they did not themselves request copies of these emails? That tells me they aren´t doing a lot of investigating. They may have opened an investigation but that is for the sole purpose of avoiding questions that may be asked of the administration. How many times have we heard, "We cannot comment on an open investigation"? Holder and Obama are not stupid. They are running out the clock and obstructing in any way they can.

The Inspector Clouseaus of the U.S. Injustice Department are hard at work on the case. The massive incompetence and corruption of the federal government is simply beyond belief.

Our beloved Department of Injustice is obviously conducting a faux investigation of IRS abuse. Tea Party groups that were violated say they have never been contacted regarding their abuse. Justice is becoming a more rare commodity by the day. Meanwhile Captain Zero shoots baskets, plays a lot of golf, and laughs hysterically often.

There must be an assumption of guilt in this situation. In fact, the emails were so bad that they preferred the assumption of guilt over the potential for felony charges.

The old school version of this is a court order to produce paper files followed by a bonfire of all files on the topic. Everyone knew that the files would be so damning that they could not risk their being seen.

It doesn´t matter where they heard about it. What matters is that they have shown absolutely no interest in pursuing it. Nor have they shown any interest in interviewing any of the wronged parties.

What kind of investigation is that? Answer: it´s not an investigation, it´s a slow motion coverup.

It´s a funny thing about trying to find something that is missing. If you don´t look, it will never be found.

That´s what they are hoping for and why the DOJ no longer has any credibility and cannot be expected to selfie police the WH´s actions.

To me, the most mind boggling fact in all of this is that they must really think that we will believe all of the crap they spill out. I mean, just think. What are the odds that SEVEN computer drives, all containing the same data, would crash all at the same time? And would be physically be destroyed too? And then they have the gonads to go on and tell us that they didn´t know anything about it until they saw it on the news. Well, if that is the case, then just WHO did know about it when it happened?

By definition, plausible deniability has to be plausible.

The "heard it on TV" argument for everything from Fast and Furious to the missing emails fails the White House and the DOJ in two ways:
1. The argument is not plausible.
2. It is an open admission that they are lying when they say they don´t watch Fox News. If they only watch the MSN networks they would not hear about it at all.

Shriver had secret lover before
Arnie’s affair was exposed
New York Post, by Tara Palmeiri    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 9/2/2014 7:38:37 AM     Post Reply
Arnold Schwarzenegger may have shagged the maid — but wife Maria Shriver is no June Cleaver. The Kennedy heiress was sleeping with her husband’s lead campaign strategist well before Schwarzenegger’s old affair with their housekeeper came to light, campaign staffers and other sources told The Post. And after years of playing the betrayed wife, Shriver, 58, recently trotted out her longtime lover, Matthew Dowd, 53, as if he were a new fling, sources said. Shriver stepped out with Dowd, now an ABC analyst, for the first time publicly last month at cousin Bobby Kennedy’s wedding. “Maria likes to make it appear that she’s the

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and allied leaders will respond to Russian aggression in Ukraine by moving to set up a quick-strike force of several thousand troops at the NATO summit this week in Wales. NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Monday the new multinational force would be part of a “Readiness Action Plan (that) responds to Russia’s aggressive behavior,” adding that “it equips the alliance to respond to all security challenges wherever they may arise.” Rasmussen acknowledged that a NATO conference originally scheduled to focus on Afghanistan will now be dominated by the Ukraine crisis when heads of the 28

IRS scandal needs

We have heard the phrase “phony scandals” applied this summer to several important developments in President Obama´s administration. Obama would now love to place in this category even the IRS scandal, in which Lois Lerner´s division of that agency targeted and harassed conservative non-profit groups. Last summer, Obama had called that scandal “inexcusable” and forced the head of the IRS to resign. How times change. This scandal, though without the fatal consequences that attended the mismanagement of the Veterans Administration, is nevertheless egregious and telling about the nature of the executive over which Obama presides. It escalated significantly last month as

We need some sort of Deleted Phrase of the Year, letting everyone know that a phrase has simply been beaten to death, jumped the shark and reached the end of the line.

Kids report cramming so hard that they’re only getting two hours of sleep a night. They’re bionic hamsters.

An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan.

Biff Matthews is up to his eyeballs in knuckle busters.

He has enough spare parts to assemble another 2,000 if need be. "I´m not going to run out," he says. There is little danger of that happening soon.

WASHINGTON — Voters hate Washington, and they’ll get their chance to shake things up in November’s midterm elections. The big question is whether the Republicans can win control of the Senate while holding the House of Representatives, which would give them the entire Congress for the remaining two years of Barack Obama’s presidency and set the stage for the 2016 elections. At stake this fall are 36 of the Senate’s 100 seats, all 435 House seats and 36 governorships. Republicans start with a decided edge: – The most vulnerable Democrats are in states Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney won two years ago; – Republicans are

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

WASHINGTON — The current Congress is on track to be the worst ever at passing laws since modern record-keeping began, with three of its lawmakers failing to introduce a single bill, The Post has learned. The divided House and Senate have managed to pass just 163 laws that garnered President Obama’s signature since the two-year term began in January 2013. At this rate, Congress will have no problem beating the previous record set during the 2011-2013 session in which 284 laws were passed. That was down from 385 laws passed in the 2009-2011 session.
