An Important Legal Ruling Against
the IRS May Have Huge Implications

PJ Media, by Jeff Reynolds

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/21/2017 4:20:22 AM

In a major victory in the ongoing Lois Lerner scandal at the IRS, non-profit election integrity organization True the Vote defeated an IRS motion to quash discovery in True the Vote v. IRS. The ruling means that everyone involved in the scandal could be compelled to submit every document related to the case and be deposed by True the Vote´s legal team. From their press release: Judge Reggie Walton of U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia just issued a critical order in True the Vote v. IRS case. The order compels the IRS to submit to discovery and

Love this. Lerner could come clean but she won´t. True the Vote expects more dodging from Lerner and Koskenin. Trump needs to fire Koskenin. I hope Lerner spends every penny she has on legal fees.

Case will surely be appealed by what can only be called the Obama/Trump IRS to the full appeals court for review. This D.C. Appeals court is stuffed with Obama appointees. If either side loses at this level, it´s onto the Supreme Court in 10/18. The Supremes then have to decide whether to grant a review, which would occur in 2019. This time frame means that the IRS, which has already admitted to erasing 47 of Lois Lerner´s back up email files, will find and erase all other incriminating records. Only taxpayers have to keep records under penalty of law.

Sadly, Trump´s IRS is part of this obstruction, meaning that this particular swamp wiil not be drained and Lois Lerner and the people who aided and abetted her Tea Party obstruction will never be brought to justice. I hope that I am wrong.

The Courts exert total control over Republicans as seen in the trashing of Trump´s immigration order re: Terrorist States.

But Leftists who run to the courts for help in sidestepping the rule of law also feel empowered to disregard any court rulings which might hinder their activities.

They effectively abuse the courts coming and going while conservatives patiently suffer the rule of law and watch the whole thing go to hell........again.

Will the IRS cough up the documents ?

Never.

Nothing is going to happen until their are firings, personal fines, jailing, and complete reworking of the IRS or change to another type of tax structure.

Here is my far left looking solution, written by a conservative, who is almost libertarian.
The U.S. needs to create NATIONAL ID CARDS WITH THE PERSON´S DNA EMBEDDED. At the same tine, we need a flat income tax, with no deductions.
The national ID card would serve as voter registration/voter ID.
If we did that, we would turn the IRS into a book keeping operation, of tiny size, compared to today, We would eliminate voter fraud, depoliticize the IRS, and have a DNA base to check when certain crimes are committed. Illegal immigrants would also be cut down.
If my Giant Eagle grocery store can issue a card that works, so can the federal government.
I know this sounds ´big brother´ but...

This will be fun.

Why is Koskenin still at IRS? This is incredible.

Let´s hope that much criminality is uncovered and prosecuted.

Once again President Trump took to Twitter to slam the fake news media.

Many in the media are working with progressive interests to undermine and remove the president by using mass manipulation cloaked as reporting, according to five-time Emmy Award winner, author and investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson. “Transactional journalism” is clinically defined by Attkisson as “reporters making inappropriate deals with the people they’re reporting on,” the phenomenon seems more like political warfare to those with an ideological lens. Attkisson swims in the waters she writes and speaks of as the feature of her own Sunday investigative show, “Full Measure,” and a former CBS investigative reporter.

Because of left-wing outrage and media obsession, the nation has focused on whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russians to influence the American election. In the hype and hysteria, we have been distracted from an obvious issue. If, as the Obama Administration claimed, the Russians merely wanted to undermine American trust in the democratic process, would not they work both sides against each other? It is looking more and more like that may be the case. To understand the tangled details around Donald Trump, Jr.´s meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, we first have to examine the Magnitsky Act. That

The Marine Forces Reserve has released the identities and photographs of 16 military personnel who were killed in a plane crash in Mississippi this week. The military plane, a KC-130, was traveling from Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in North Carolina when it spiraled into a soybean field about 4 p.m. Monday, spreading debris for miles and resulting in fiery wreckage that burned for hours. While the KC-130 refueling tanker took off from Cherry Point, the plane was under the command of the 4th Marine Air Wing, which is part of the Marine Forces Reserve headquartered in New Orleans.

The Trump campaign and fundraising committees raised $13.9 million between the start of April and the end of June. The numbers are close to three quarters of a million more than in the first three months of 2017. Donations have continued to grow in spite of the administration´s struggles with nearly constant accusations that the campaign colluded with Russia during campaign season. The campaign and two joint fundraising committees (Trump Victory and the Trump Make America Great Again Committee) fundraised for both Trump and the Republican National Committee.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has told governors from across the US to ditch the "America First" motto. His National Governors´ Association speech in Rhode Island on Friday was a first for a Canadian prime minister. In his speech, Mr Trudeau urged US governors to embrace their neighbour to the north and avoid protectionism. It is all a part of his aggressive strategy to promote a "thinner border" ahead of vital trade talks with the US renegotiating the Nafta treaty. President Donald Trump has made "America First" his mantra, shaping his policies on trade and immigration. But Mr Trudeau, who is

The White House would be required to hold at least a couple on-camera press briefings each week if a Democratic lawmaker musters support for a House bill being offered. Rep. Jim Himes of Connecticut introduced the Free Press Act on Thursday, a legislative proposal that aims to increase transparency within the Trump administration by mandating two on-camera press briefings per week. “The White House has begun to dramatically, and in an historically unprecedented way, reduce the media and therefore the American people’s access to the thinking of the president,” Mr. Himes said in a statement. “And that’s not healthy.”

Richard Fernandez is one of the most brilliant authors on the Internet. This week he wrote: Conventional wisdom posits the chief challenges facing the post-Cold War World are Global Warming and the decline of international institutions. But maybe that assurance is a species of Fake News. Suppose the most pressing problems in the next decade is finding new energy supplies to 1) keep the price of oil low enough to contain Russia (and Islamism); and 2) adapting to a disruptive information revolution no one can seem to control.

It wouldn’t have taken much for Hillary Clinton to prevail on Election Night. Donald Trump won the presidency with razor-thin margins of less than 1 percent in three states that had gone Democratic in the previous five elections — Michigan by 10,000 votes, Wisconsin by 22,000 and Pennsylvania by 34,000. Yes, if only she hadn’t run what was likely the worst presidential campaign in our lifetimes, Hillary Clinton could have stitched together around 80,000 votes and could have been sitting in the Oval Office right now. The interesting question is: How would America in July 2017 be different under a President Clinton rather

Why indeed? Obamacare was passed in 2009 without a single Republican vote. Everyone who paid attention to its details knew it was designed to fail, miserably. Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber bragged about how getting it passed depended on the stupidity of the American people. But people would not be able to keep their own doctors as promised. No one´s premiums went down by $2,500. They all went up and up and up.Those who are paying for it cannot afford to use it because the deductibles are too high. It is a monstrosity of catastrophic proportions. The insurance companies were on
