Oversight Committee Responds to New Documents Revealing Lois Lerner and DOJ’s Plan to Persecute Conservative Groups

obama lois lerner irs

The Oversight and Government Reform Committee released the following statement on thenew documents discussing potential prosecution of tax exempt groups by the Holder DOJ.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Job Creation and Regulatory AffairsChairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) today released the following statements in response to the release of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) documents showing former IRS official Lois Lerner in contact with the Justice Department about potential prosecution of tax-exempt groups:

“The release of new documents underscores the political nature of IRS Tea Party targeting and the extent to which supposed apolitical officials took direction from elected Democrats,” said Chairman Issa. “These e-mails are part of an overwhelming body of evidence that political pressure from prominent Democrats led to the targeting of Americans for their political beliefs.”

“Now I see why the IRS is scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails,”said Chairman Jordan. “Not only do these e-mails further prove the coordination among the IRS, the Federal Election Commission (FEC), the Justice Department and committee Democrats to target conservatives, they also show that had our committee not requested the Inspector General’s investigation when we did, Eric Holder’s politicized Justice Department would likely have been leveling trumped up criminal charges against Tea Party groups to intimidate them from exercising their Constitutional rights.”

For the record - The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

And, now we know they were plotting to prosecute conservative groups.

Is your home’s energy meter spying on you?

Utility companies across the country are have been steadily launching initiatives to install smart meters at customers homes, but many have protested, saying that it infringes on their privacy rights and may even cause health issues.TOBY TALBOT/AP

Utility companies across the U.S. are installing smart meters in customers’ homes, touting the technology’s energy-saving ways, but opponents argue that the meters are opening a Pandora’s box of privacy concerns.

The smart energy meters read electric or gas usage, and enable a power company to collect detailed usage data on a particular home or building. But the readings also gather personal information that some critics argue is too intrusive.

What Hope And Change Has Brought….”WE ARE DOOMED”!!

 

What hath Obungler brought to this country? Higher taxes and more poverty.

The median income of American households dropped by $2,627 during President Barack Obama’s first term — and the number of people in poverty rose by about 6,667,000, according to a new report from the Census Bureau.

This reminds me of the joke going around that if the world was ending the New York Slimes (Motto: All the news that fits our views) headline would read: World Ending Tomorrow – Poor And Elderly Hardest Hit

Some 46,496,000 Americans are now in poverty, the highest number ever and a 16.73 percent increase from 2008 when Obama took office.

Overall, 15 percent of Americans are considered to be living in poverty, up from 13.2 percent in 2008.

This is Hope and Change in action. And these people voted overwhelmingly for Oblunder. Jesus H. Christ! They deserve to be poor and this is why they’re poor. They’re freakin’ stupid! It’s like I always say, “The rich get richer because they continue do the things that made them rich. The majority of the poor get poorer because they continue to do the things that made them poor in the first place. Let me count the ways.

1. They drop out of school
2. They have children they cannot afford and in the case of 73% of black children, they are born to single mothers. This is an express ticket to poverty right there.
3. They do not develop a work ethic.
4. They vote For Dimocrats who have policies that keep them poor like union teachers and saying no to charter schools. Meanwhile, these same Dimocrat politicians and many union teachers, send their children to private schools.

Louisiana Democrats Call Bible “Offensive” After Legislators Move To Make It State’s Official Book…

Bible

Dems would never in a million years call the Koran “offensive.”

Via Advocate:

Louisiana legislators advanced a bill Thursday that would make the Holy Bible the official Louisiana state book, despite concerns the move could prompt litigation.

“You cannot separate Christianity from the Bible,” said state Rep. Wesley Bishop, D-New Orleans, a lawyer and the son of a preacher. “If you adopt the Bible as the official state book, you also adopt Christianity as the state religion … We are going to open ourselves up to a lawsuit.”

The House Municipal, Parochial and Cultural Affairs Committee voted 8-5 to recommend the legislation to the full House.

State Rep. Thomas Carmody, R-Shreveport, countered that naming an official state book doesn’t equate to establishing a state religion, which isspecifically prohibited in the U.S. Constitution.

“The Holy Bible would be appropriate for the state of Louisiana,” he said, particularly given the state’s strong religious ties. [...]

Other legislators said Carmody’s bill was not inclusive of all types of religions practiced by Louisiana residents.

“As an elected official on this committee and in this building, some of my constituents from the city of New Orleans and around the state will find this type of legislation offensive,” said state Rep. Jared Brossett, D-New Orleans.

“You don’t think it’s offensive to some citizens of this state to select the Bible as the official state book?” asked Rep. Ebony Woodruff, D-Harvey. Woodruff suggested Carmody add “all books of faith like the Quran, the Torah.”

Carmody said he thought the Bible was “the appropriate symbol.” He said the state can have more than one state book, just as it has more than one official jelly.

WHITE Bicyclist Attacked By Group Of BLACK Teens

Just another “Black on White” hate crime you will NEVER see on Obama’s State-Run Network TV…….Papa Mike

 

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — An evening bike ride for a cyclist turned violent after he was attacked by a group of teenagers–and it’s caught on camera.

Rochelle Ritchie has more.

The man was wearing a helmet with one additional feature his attackers did not know about–a camera positioned on top. Now that video is in the hands of Baltimore City Police, who are combing through the images.

It was a dark Saturday evening when Mike Bowman, 32, peddled his way down Guilford Avenue toward Hampden, where he was meeting friends.

“There’s a bunch of kids that hang there at Lanvale. Before I knew it, there’s a guy chasing me. A bottle goes past my head,” Bowman said.

In this VIDEO you can see a teenager in a white T-shirt chasing Bowman, as he turned and looked behind him. As he crossed the intersection, he was intercepted by several teens on bikes, who knocked him to the ground.

The camera caught the teenagers’ violent actions.

Benghazi Mother At San Diego Protest: Hillary Lied And It Makes A Difference”

If it takes forever, we stand with you, Pat Smith…

Via Breitbart:

SAN DIEGO, CA — Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke via satellite to attendees of San Diego’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on Apr. 11, just days after canceling plans to attend in person. Two protest groups gathered outside the San Diego Convention Center for the conference, but for two different reasons.

One group of 10-15 demonstrators, promoting a single-payer healthcare system, stood across from the Convention Center. While playing a recording of the folk tune “Medicare for All,” the group spoke to passing pedestrians for approximately two hours.

The other protest, directly in front of the Convention Center, included over 40 protestors expressing their opposition to Hillary’s handling of the events surrounding the September 11, 2012 attack on the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.

Organized by the recently-formed group The Difference Matters, those walking the protest line included Benghazi victim Sean Smith’s mother, Pat Smith, and a friend of Ty Woods, another Benghazi victim.

Obama Decries “Bogus” Voter Fraud Complaints After 35,570 Double Votes Counted in North Carolina”

The North Carolina Board of Elections discovered THOUSANDS of residents who voted in both North Carolina and another state in the 2012 elections.


The investigation also found 81 deceased voters that had voter activity since they died.

But you wouldn’t know this from Barack Obama’s speech on Friday.
Obama decried “bogus” accusations of voter fraud in his speech Friday to the Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.
The Hill reported:

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton.

Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred.

“So let’s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.
Obama sad that the efforts betrayed a weakness within the Republican Party, saying his opposition needed to restrict poll access to remain competitive.

“If your strategy depends on fewer people showing up to vote, that’s not a sign of strength, it’s a sign of weakness,” Obama said.

“What kind of political platform is that?” he added. “Why would you make that part of your agenda, preventing people from voting?”

The Legacy of Obama’s Illegal Alien Aunt

Zeituni Onyango, President Obama’s illegal alien aunt, died this week of cancer and other complications. I hope she rests in peace. America, however, should be up in arms.

Auntie Zeituni is an enduring symbol of all that is wrong with this country’s immigration “policy” — or rather, its complete lack of a coherent, enforceable system of laws and rules that puts the national interest first. She was a beneficiary of the welfare state run amok, enabled by bipartisan fecklessness. To the bitter end, she bit the hand that fed her with predictable ingratitude and metastatic entitlement.

Zeituni’s 14-year illegal overstay is a reminder that our temporary visa program is an abysmal joke. Like millions of foreign students, business people and tourists to this country, Auntie Zeituni obtained a short-term visitor visa in 2000. It had an expiration date. She was supposed to go back to Kenya in two years after traveling here with her son, who had been accepted at a college in Boston.

But like millions of other “temporary” visa overstayers, Auntie Zeituni never went home. And despite billions spent on homeland security and immigration enforcement, no one ever went looking for her to kick her out of the country after her time was up.

George Will: Obama Administration Cries of Racism Are Becoming a Joke 

George Will commented on the Eric Holder’s latest suggestion that the criticism against the Obama administration was racist in nature.

Liberalism has a kind of Tourette Syndrome these days. It’s constantly saying the words racism and racist. There’s an old saying , if you have the law on your side, argue the law. If you have the facts on your side, argue the facts. If you have neither, pound the table. This is pounding the table. There’s a kind of intellectual poverty now. Liberalism hasn’t had a new idea since the 1960s, except Obamacare, and the country doesn’t like it.

“Foreign policy is a shambles from Russia to Iran to Syria to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. And, the recovery is unprecedentedly bad. So, what do you do? You say anyone who criticizes us is a racist. It’s become a joke among young people.You go to a campus where this kind of political correctness reigns and some young person says, ‘It looks like it’s going to rain.’ And, the person next to him looks and says, ‘You’re a racist.’ It’s so inappropriate. The constant invocation of this that it is becoming a national mirth.

BOMBSHELL – SENATOR HARRY REID IS BEHIND NEVADA BUNDY RANCH LAND GRAB”

CORRUPT HARRY REID IS WORKING WITH SOLAR FIRMS TO TAKE LAND FROM AMERICAN RANCHERS–
In 2012 Harry Reid helped a Chinese solar firmrepresented by his son Rory, near Laughlin, Nevada in a $5 billion solar deal.


Three weeks before Election Day, Senate Majority leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., center, arrives for the dedication of a wind farm in Henderson, Nev., on Oct. 12, 2010. With him are, second from left, Kai Huang, deputy mayor of Shenyang, China; Jinxiang Lu, second from right, chairman and CEO of A-Power Energy Generation Systems, a Chinese company, and Tom Conway, right, international vice president of the United Steelworkers union. Reid’s support, and the plan to create jobs in Nevada, helped blunt congressional criticism that stimulus money was going to the Chinese company. (MSNBC)

InfoWars reported:

The Bureau of Land Management, whose director was Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.)former senior adviser, has purged documents from its web site stating that the agency wants Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations.

Deleted from BLM.gov but reposted for posterity by the Free Republic, the BLM document entitled “Cattle Trespass Impacts” directly states that Bundy’s cattle “impacts” solar development, more specifically the construction of “utility-scale solar power generation facilities” on “public lands.”

“Non-Governmental Organizations have expressed concern that the regional mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone utilizes Gold Butte as the location for offsite mitigation for impacts from solar development, and that those restoration activities are not durable with the presence of trespass cattle,” the document states.

Another BLM report entitled “Regional Mitigation Strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone” (BLM Technical Note 444) reveals that Bundy’s land in question is within the “Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone and surrounding area” which is part of a broad U.S. Department of Energy program for “Solar Energy Development in Six Southwestern States” on land “managed” by BLM.

STOP TRASHING OBAMA


Contact your representatives and demand that they stand up and put a stop to Obama. We the people are not afraid of him. Send this list of his accomplishments to everyone. Cover the United States with this information. If the people don’t demand it of the congress and senate we are in danger of being a third world banana republic. He is eating an elephant one bite at a time. All little things….but significant when added up. Where is Benghazi in this list where he failed to provide a rescue of our Ambassador and four other guys. Shame on him and shame on us if we don’t stand up to this man……Papa Mike

STOP TRASHING OBAMA

by COL. ROBERT F. CUNNINGHAM and PATRICK RISHOR, The Gilmer Mirror

Quit trashing Obama’s accomplishments.
He has done more than any other President before him.
Here is a list of his impressive accomplishments:

First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner.

First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in.

First President to preside over a cut to the credit-rating of the United States.

First President to violate the War Powers Act.

First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.

First President to require all Americans to purchase a product from a third party.

First President to spend a trillion dollars on “shovel-ready” jobs when there was no such thing as “shovel-ready” jobs.

First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters.

First President to by-pass Congress and implement the Dream Act through executive fiat.

First President to order a secret amnesty program that stopped the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S., including those with criminal convictions.

First President to demand a company hand-over $20 billion to one of his political appointees.

Why We’re Doomed

A freakin’ pencil! Can you believe it? This is how far we have sunk. The dumbest people in college are education majors. Is it any wonder our Government schools pull this kind of crap?

When I went to school, most boys carried pocket knives. Since I was a Cub Sprout and a Boy Sprout, I carried an official Boy Sprout pocket knife. We even played mumbly-peg during recess.

We have become a nation full of pussies educated by booger eatin’ moh-rons. And of course, this totally explains how Obungler could get elected twice. Neal Boortz often stated that sending your children to Government schools was child abuse.

We’re doomed!

LOIS LERNER CONTEMPT CHARGES – FINAL VOTE 23 to 14 – The Resolution Passes!

How in the HELL could 14 not know she belongs in PRISON?…..Papa Mike

The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

lerner shulman

Today the House Ways and Means Committee voted 23-14 to formally ask the Justice Department to consider criminal prosecution against former IRS official Lois Lerner.
FOX News reported:

A House committee voted Wednesday to formally ask the Justice Department to consider criminal prosecution against ex-IRS official Lois Lerner, the figure at the center of the political targeting scandal.

The House Ways and Means Committee voted 23-14 to send the criminal referral, which accused her of “extreme bias.” The vote marked an escalation in Republicans’ push to confront Lerner over her role in the agency’s controversial practice of singling out conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for extra scrutiny.

“If we don’t stand up for the right of the American people, who else will?” committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., said after the vote.

A 14-page letter to Attorney General Eric Holder outlined Republicans’ case against the former IRS official, saying she “may have violated multiple criminal statutes.” 

The letter accused Lerner of using her position to improperly target conservative groups and deny their constitutional rights; of impeding an inspector general investigation by giving misleading statements; and of risking the disclosure of confidential taxpayer information.

“I Can Do Whatever The F*#K I Want” – Eric Holder

image
Attorney General Eric Holder maintained Tuesday that he has a “vast amount” of discretion in how the Justice Department prosecutes federal law.

Holder’s remarks, during testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, came in response to GOP accusations that he is flouting the law with his department’s positions on marijuana legalization, criminal sentencing and a contentious provision of the president’s signature healthcare law.

Leading the questioning was House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), who asked Holder whether he believed there were any limits to the administration’s prosecutorial discretion.
“There is a vast amount of discretion that a president has — and, more specifically, that an attorney general has,” Holder responded. “But that discretion has to be used in an appropriate way so that your acting consistent with the aims of the statute but at the same time making sure that you are acting in a way that is consistent with our values, consistent with the Constitution and protecting the American people.”

IRS Offices Chock-Full of Obama Stickers and Screensavers”

Has anyone thought about looking in to how many Republicans versus DIMocrats get audited each year. I would put everything I got on MORE REPUBLICANS get audited 100 to 1…….Papa Mike

irs obama

The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

So is it really a surprise that Obama stickers and campaign cheerleading is commonplace in the IRS?
The Washington Times reported:

Even as the IRS faces growing heat over Lois G. Lerner and the tea party targeting scandal, a government watchdog said Wednesday it’s pursuing cases against three other tax agency employees and offices suspected of illegal political activity in support of President Obama and fellow Democrats.

In one case the Office of Special Counsel, which investigates federal employees who conduct politics on government time, said it was “commonplace” in a Dallas IRS office for employees to have pro-Obama screensavers on their computers, and to have campaign-style buttons and stickers at their office.

In another case, a worker at the tax agency’s customer help line urged taxpayers “to re-elect President Obama in 2012 by repeatedly reciting a chant based on the spelling of his last name,” the Office of Special Counsel said in a statement.

OSC said it is seeking “significant disciplinary action” against that employee.

Another IRS employee in Kentucky has agreed to serve a 14-day suspension for blasting Republicans in a conversation with a taxpayer.

Hole Under Door Lock

Wednesday, I approached my car from the passenger side to place
my computer bag in the front passenger seat.

As I reached to open the door I noticed there was a hole right
under my door handle.

My first thought was, “someone has shot the car !”

I began to think about it and inspect it a little closer and
the “light” slowly began to dawn.

I phoned a friend who owns a body shop and asked if he had any
vehicles with damage to the doors that looked like a bullet hole.

“Yes, I see it all the time. Thieves have a punch and place it
right under the door handle, knock a hole through, reach in and
unlock it, just as if they have a key. No alarms, broken glass,
or anything.”

I then placed a call to my insurance agent and explained it to
him. I was puzzled that they left my GPS and all other belongings.

Here is where it gets scary !

“Oh no, he said, they want the break-in to be so subtle that you
don’t even realize it. They look at your GPS to see where “home”
is. Or check your address from Insurance and Registration documents in your glove box.
Now they know what you drive, go to your home, and if your
vehicle isn’t there they assume you aren’t, and break into your home.”

He said they will even leave a purse or wallet and only take one
or two credit cards. By the time you realize there has been a
theft, they may have already had a couple of days or more to
use them.

(I didn’t realize my situation for two full days!)

They even give you the courtesy of re-locking your doors for you.

Periodically, walk around your car, especially after you park
in a shopping center or other large parking area.

Report thefts immediately….your bank w/missing check numbers,
your credit card agencies, police, and insurance companies, etc.

Below is picture of what the hole looks like.

Hole Under Door Lock

One would have to look pretty darn close to notice a hole like that.

If the hole was on the passenger side I would, normally, never notice it.

Chuck Schumer Says Koch Brothers Are “Un-American” …But He Took Their Campaign Money Anyway”

Last week Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called the conservative Koch Brothers “Un-American”

But that isn’t what he said in 2910.
In 2010, Chuck Schumer said “Thank you!” to the Koch Brothers for their donation.
When KochPAC, Koch Industries’ political action committee, donated money to Schumer’s 2010 Senatorial campaign, Schumer thought the Kochs were wonderful. Here is the letter of appreciation he wrote, dated October 28,2009.
