IRS: Lerner´s hard drive was
wiped clean in 2011

The Hill (Washington DC), by Bernie Becker

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/18/2014 10:12:04 PM

The IRS said under oath Friday that former agency official Lois Lerner’s hard drive was destroyed and recycled, echoing earlier testimony from its commissioner. In its most extensive comments yet on Lerner’s hard drive, the agency said in court filings Friday that the hard drive was destroyed in 2011 to protect confidential taxpayer information. Before that, the IRS said, the hard drive underwent a process designed to permanently erase stored data. That process occurred after a series of IRS technical officers examined Lerner’s hard drive, and found that it couldn’t be restored after a crash. The IRS’s court filings came

"confidential taxpayer information" - you mean like Harry Reid quotes on Mitt Romney or like the taxpayer information that Lois sent to the FBI?

Wiped clean and destroyed only two weeks after the GOP began to ask questions about her involvement in the scandal. All I can say is if this had happened under Bush or a Republican president, the howling from the donkeys would be deafening. Amazing what you can get away with if you´re a black democrat with a chip on your shoulder and the media in your back pocket.

Had to have contained very serious stuff and correspondence with White House to risk the legal trouble Lerner et al are in.

The TRUTH would be catastrophic.

As we are wont to say, if this were to happen in any Republican administration, there would be hell to pay.

So they tried to recover data but couldn´t, then why didn´t they retrieve it from the back- up company at that time? And why then was the back- up company let go soon after the crash? It strains credulity!

I want a Republican to bluff Koskinen et al and place them in The Prisoner´s Dilemma.

I want the Republican to say that he´s retained independent IT consultants that have pieced together some, but not all, of Lerner´s e-mails and that the e-mails are damning, obviating the question of whether they were malicious destroyed or not.

Let Lerner sweat out some more Oil of Olay as she contemplates possible charges with or without Fifth Amendment protections.

Like the Muslims, the Dem hacks know only fear, either giving or receiving. It´s time for them to receive.

I think Lois Lerner should be sent to Jail until SOMEONE comes up with her e-mails. My bet is that it wouldn´t take long for them to surface! Enough with tip toeing around. Issa should fish or cut bait. He´s getting nowhere. He needs to make HER talk and one way to do that is to have the Judge sent her to Jail. Also, whoever destroyed that hard drive should go to jail as well.

This happened three years ago and the IRS waited until now to say anything about it. Jail everyone who made IRS statements for the last three years. You would either get the truth or there would not be anyone willing to speak up in the IRS. Cut their funding.

On September 27th, the nation will be stumbling across a very significant and illustrative anniversary -- and yet the very people who need to be enlightened remain clueless. It is the 20th anniversary of the rollout of the Contract with America, a document that nationalized a Congressional midterm election for perhaps the first time. This nationalization of the ‘94 election was the key component – though not the only one – in an historic landslide wave election. The Republicans swept 54 Democrats out of the House, including Speaker Tom Foley, and eight from the Senate, and took control of both

American Bridge, a George Soros-funded outfit recently described by Democratic strategist Paul Begala as an army of “nerd virgins” who have never tasted alcohol or gotten laid, thinks it would be pretty awful.

Massive ´Residential Center´ to Open

Breitbart Texas, by Kristin Tate    Original Article

HOUSTON, Texas- A large new immigrant housing center will be opened in South Texas. The South Texas Family Residential Center will ultimately hold 2,400 individuals, primarily families, who were apprehended while crossing the Texas- Mexico border. During their stay at the center foreigners will be provided with taxpayer-funded "medical care, play rooms, social workers, educational services, and access to legal counsel," Breitbart Texas has learned. The facility will open in November in Dilley, Texas, which is located about 70 miles southwest of San Antonio. This is the fourth facility of its kind to be built in Texas, according to Fox

Eleven months after the Obama administration launched healthcare.gov and just weeks before the open enrollment period to sign up for insurance policies created by the Affordable Care Act begins, Obama officials are touting the health care law and tamping down expectations, including the problem-plagued website. “You need to understand that this is going to be a year of substantial improvement,” Cecilia Munoz, assistant to the president and director of the Domestic Policy Council, said Wednesday at an “outreach” event at the Kaiser Family Foundation in Washington, D.C. “It’s not going to be a year of perfection.”

"Who do you think President Obama could appoint at this very day, given the boundaries that we have?

The laws of political fundraising dictate that every time a politician does something embarrassing — or heck, every time a politician does something — his or her opponents must therefore beat that incident to death in order to make money.

"There´s definitely a second day and there´ll be a third and a fourth" in Syria, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told CNN in an interview on Wednesday. "This will go on for some time in several forms." Along with its Arab partners, the Obama administration aims to destroy ISIS, the extremist faction that has through brute force carved out a proto-state in the heart of the Middle East, effectively erasing the border between Iraq and Syria. The United Nations has accused the extremist faction of committing war crimes. The U.S. strikes earlier Wednesday, conducted by bombers and fighter jets, damaged

How imminent is an ´imminent´ attack threat?

WASHINGTON— Smart people in the administration have spent the last two days telling the American people that U.S. strikes against the Khorasan Group were necessary to disrupt "imminent attack plotting" against U.S. and Western interests. They warned that members of the shadowy Khorasan Group, an al-Qaida offshoot, were "nearing the execution phase" of an attack in the U.S. or Europe. They spoke of "active plotting that posed an imminent threat." People may have come away with the impression that the terror group was on the brink of pulling off something awful. Perhaps not. In government-speak, "imminent attack plotting" doesn´t necessarily mean

President Barack Obama returned a formal military salute with a one-handed coffee-cup salute Tuesday, only a few hours after he dispatched the nation’s military on their attack mission into northern Syria. White House aides posted the sloppy salute video on Instagram. The commander in chief offered the coffee-cup salute when he disembarked from his U.S. Marine Corps helicopter in New York, as he made his way to the United Nations General Assembly. “President Obama just landed in New York for #UNGA2014,” says the caption. The salute is “the most important of all military courtesies,” says a manual for Marine Corps officer candidates. “In some situations,

President Barack Obama saluted a pair of United States Marines on Tuesday while holding what appeared to be a styrofoam cup in his saluting hand, a breach of military regulations that won´t win him fans among veterans and servicemen. Obama is known for drinking tea, not coffee, when he travels, especially before delivering speeches. His quasi-saluting gesture was an instant embarrassment for the White House, and not because his environmentally taboo drinkware clashed with the green-policy speech he was on his way to deliver at a UN Climate Summit.

On Tuesday, shortly after announcing to the American public that the United States was now bombing ISIS in Syria, the President of the United States flew to New York to address the United Nations – on climate change. His speech mixed high-flown sentiment with apologies for America, and pledged American sacrifice in the name of a lofty goal without evidence that such sacrifice would in any way contribute to attaining that goal. In other words, it was a typical Barack Obama whirligig. Even as American warplanes struck targets in Syria, even as regimes tottered in Jordan and Iraq and Yemen,

Rush Limbaugh apparently tips generously, which sometimes makes people who dislike him feel quite awkward. In one case, a waitress-turned-award-winning-author revealed that she felt so awkward, that she donated both of his $1,000 tips to an abortion charity. Merritt Tierce, whose debut novel Love Me Back chronicles her time at a high-end Dallas steakhouse, revealed in an interview with Dallas News that, at the time, she was also the executive director of the Texas Equal Abortion (TEA) Fund, which provides financial assistance to low-income women seeking abortions.

President Obama on Wednesday delivered a speech at the United Nations filled with his usual soaring rhetoric of global collectivism and the importance of “international norms.” But the president also displayed a shocking naivete about global affairs, religion, Islam — a Pollyannaish interpretation on the state of the world and America’s role in it. Although Mr. Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize just eight months into office, the president made his annual trip to the ineffectual world council to deliver a call to war. “Ladies and gentlemen, we come together at a crossroads between war and peace,

Standing alongside her mother, Hillary Clinton, at the Clinton Global Initiative this afternoon, the very-pregnant former first daughter warned the plight of African elephants, killed for their ivory tusks, is an “existential” one, and said that if the current poaching rates continue, elephants could be few and far between within the next decade.

The View is a television show that, apparently, a lot of women watch. Currently, Rosie O’Donnell, who was once famous for something–I have no idea what–is one of the hosts. Still, many women watch. So this video of The View’s women grappling with the Obama administration’s response to ISIS terrorism is noteworthy. I want to highlight O’Donnell’s contribution near the end: We are bombing Syria because Syria has so much oil, so there is a “financial incentive.” What the Hell is this supposed to mean? Why are liberals obsessed with oil? And what, exactly, is the “financial incentive?” Here is the

During the Bush administration, national Democrat leaders threatened to kill the ABC network´s broadcast license if a miniseries unfavorable to the Clinton administration wasn´t censored to satisfy Democrats. ABC complied. Earlier this year, Democrats started a push for a Constitutional Amendment to gut (literally) the First Amendment. Over the weekend, Democrats launched a campaign to get -- in their own words -- "Rush Limbaugh off the air." The petition to get Limbaugh off the air comes straight from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in the form of a fundraising/petition email.
