Judicial Watch:
DOJ Admits Lois Lerner’s Emails Exist

National Review Online, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:Doctor P, 8/25/2014 3:32:34 PM

A Justice Department official admitted that former IRS official Lois Lerner’s apparently missing emails actually exist on a backup server, but the government doesn’t plan to retrieve them. , “A Department of Justice attorney told a Judicial Watch attorney on Friday that it turns out the federal government backs up all computer records in case something terrible happens in Washington and there’s a catastrophe, so the government can continue operating,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told Fox News’ Shannon Bream. “But it would be too hard to go get lois lerner’s emails from that backup system,” Fitton continued, paraphrasing the DOJ official.

Comments:
Lots of folks should go to jail and lets see how hard it is to get the email then

It isn´t hard to retrieve back up data. Why bother backing it up at all? It is hard to face the facts the backed up data will do to 0bama.

So those of us who have been insisting exactly this (i.e., that ALL the disputed emails do in fact exist on some server or its backup) are correct. Now the question is, why has it taken months to even have this fact acknowledged?

Jail time is in order.

That´s an amazing admission , just proving that all the Government officials that spoke about the emails in point were, in fact, lying,
or simply repeating what they were told like the good little Democratic sycophants they are.

A month or so ago a Federal Judge requested a sworn affidavit re these systems in response to the Judicial Watch lawsuit. Looks like the DOJ could find no one willing to commit perjury to this judge. Things will start to unravel now.

Well, then, just permit access to all the backups to Judicial Watch and let them search for the files. But these criminals would never do that. JW might just uncover a lot of other illegal activity.

What the IRS is really saying is "We have to read and censor every item (and maybe lose a few more) before we hand them over, and that would take forever."

The judge should just grant JW general discovery, and order the IRS to open their files to them.

Wonder what would happen if we would bond together in prayer and see the glory of God appear as in old times. He alone knows the heart/mind/soul/spirit of everyone. This administration continues to challenge US to make a stand for righteousnes! How about it. Let God have His way! We have tried man´s way and failed. How about the One who created us and knows what we need - all the time! He is the Great I AM! Faith casts out fear!

I´ll bet ya when Judge Reggie Walton gets through with them they wont think it´s so hard to retrieve them. Those boys, the ones not serving time for contempt, will be falling all over each other fetching documents by the truck load for the Judge - all nice and neat, indexed and cross-indexed, clearly marked by subject and date, and all wrapped with a ribbon. Man-o-man this should stoke his fires. He knew they were lying and his last order was to tie them in a knot. Now he´s got them.

So the DOJ, after all the lies Lois Lerner & Co. told at the hearing, admits the missing emails are not missing.

Here´s the fun part: Despite the fact that lies were told to the American people and to various hearings about those emails and about how there´s not a smidgen of corruption in the IRS, they are not going to cooperate anyway.

"..the government doesn´t plan to retrieve them", is what the DOJ told a Judicial Watch lawyer. In other words, "You want them? YOU try to find them."

The DOJ and this government are not going to help Americans find the truth about IRS persecution of conservatives. They won´t do it.

They are essentially telling Judicial Watch (God bless them) to stick it. In the process, they are telling conservatives, "You´re on your own and we will continue business as usual at the IRS, like it or lump it."

In short, conservatives and the GOP have just been put on notice that the IRS will continue to try destroying their ability to raise money for candidates and political advertising, which as I see it, is a violation of the First Amendment, wot?

Those backups are for disaster recovery. They are not the type of backups you do on a single PC. It was a no-brainer from the beginning. Of course they had them. Now someone needs to direct IT to restore on to their disaster recovery servers. It would probably take 24-48 hours. Another day to find the data. JW could have everything by Friday. Send me in there. I will make it happen.

The IRS expected us to believe their first explanation because they are the IRS. They have since lost their ability to make us fear and respect them now that we know the entire organization is made up of fools, flunkies, geeks, bootlickers and affirmative action stooges.

Is everyone´s head exploding too? They have the emails but they are too difficult to retrieve? Really? Between the article on immigration and now this one, I need to calm down. It is one thing to believe your government is totally corrupt but it is another when they shove it in your face as if to say, "Yeah, and what are you going to do about it!" Has everyone in Washington decided to ignore the law? What say you, politicians of both parties, does this abuse of power stir a response in you? If not, you are worthless cowards who stand for nothing. Party does not trump the rule of law.

Don´t you people understand?

There´s this enormous warehouse where all the e-mails are stored. And Lois Lerner´s e-mails are in these boxes way at the bottom against the back wall.

It would take an army division two years to unstack all those boxes to get to the ones which are at the bottom and in the back. The IRS doesn´t have the time or the resources to do that!

No, wait - - e-mails are just electronic blips. Hmmmm - - never mind.

It´s not mentioned here in this article, but I wonder if this is the response to the Judge´s Aug. 22 deadline for answers to those e-mails? If it is, it really doesn´t answer the judge´s questions. And if this judge is as tough as I´ve read, then very soon there will be severe consequences meted out to some IRS employees. If and when it happens, I´ll dance in the streets.

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds. Royce, who met this week with the foreign minister of Kurdistan, cited recent reports of young female Kurdish troops “laughing” at ISIS forces they had turned back. “These ISIL soldiers apparently believed that if

CBS is putting its Hillary-inspired drama "Madam Secretary" on Sunday nights next to "The Good Wife." In Friday´s New York Times, TV critic Alessandra Stanley discussed the two shows and slammed Hillary.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based

WASHINGTON — WHEN Willie Nelson invites you to get high with him on his bus, you go. The man is the patron saint of pot, after all, and I’m the poster girl for bad pot trips. It seemed like a match made in hash heaven. When Nelson sang at the 9:30 club in D.C. one recent night, I ventured onto the Honeysuckle Rose, as his tour bus and home-away-from-home is called. I was feeling pretty shy about meeting him. The 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger is an icon, one of America’s top songwriters and, as Rolling Stone said, “a hippie’s hippie and
