… Way to Go , Dumb – Dumbs [#IRS computer][#security breach]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,November 12th,2016

.. yeah , you heard it right .

.. even the I.R.S. suffers a security breach ..

.. but when it happens to the Infernal Service , it can cause all sorts of grief for many , many people …

.. in this case , the Service is most likely to blame . They left a computer system littered with plenty of access holes and not enough encrypted security access .As a result , it allows folks who had obtained the right specific info access into the system to people ‘ s financial and tax info . Duh ! …

.. contrary to popular belief , most folks tax returns and tax records are fairly simply . Many folks can and do file the Form 1040EZ or the Form 1040A . It is when you want to get pickier on the deductions , or your finances start to get a little more sophisticated , then you need to file the Form 1040 . With that comes other forms or schedules , and tax preparers , tax accountants , and tax lawyers , eventually …

.. some folks finances get to be pretty sophisticated , such as [now] Bill and Hillary Clinton . With the news info coming out about the Clinton ‘s antics about their fiannces , they likely employ quite a few tax professionals in order to get their taxes done properly ..

.. Which makes this blunder all the more stupid ! ..

… I have Heard of Stupid [#DemoCrap Misconduct]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 7th,2016

.. but this is beyond outrageous …

.. congressional oversight is an important part of Congress ‘ job . Besides the making of law and the changing of law , understanding and investigating what is going on in the government at large is damned important . However , Congress is only one part of a 3 – part system of government …

.. Congress relies on the separation of powers . Congress can issue a subpoena , but it relies on the other two branches to enforce a subpoena . The judicial branch will clearly enforce one , but what about when the executive branch is clearly failing to do its job ….

….Right now , I believe the Executive branch is failing in its duty . They should be acting to enforce a Congressional subpoena . However , right now , they are not doing so . They are actively working to obstruct the work of Congress by failing to do so . Worse is the conduct detailed here …

DOJ Working With Elijah Cummings To Protect The IRS

An aide to the attorney general accidentally calls the office of the House Oversight Committee chairman, asking for help in spinning the defense of the agency whose head just said they obey the law when they can.

We have commented many times of the all-too-cozy relationship between the IRS and Democratic members of the House and Senate, with members writing to the agency demanding that specific conservative groups and political action committees they find particularly irritating be subject to the “special scrutiny” that the Tea Party and other conservative and religious groups were subjected to in the ongoing scandal.

Of particular interest to us has been Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., ranking member on Rep. Darrell Issa’s House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, who has made every effort to keep the committee from finding out the true extent of IRS corruption and abuse of power in its targeting of conservatives…

Now we have Brian Fallon, a former aide to New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer and a communications aide to Attorney General Eric Holder, who mistakenly called Issa’s office thinking it was the office of Cummings and asked for help in leaking documents to selected reporters for the purpose of creating media spin before Issa and his committee could make them public.

As Jonathan Strong reports at Breitbart News, now the subject of an IRS audit, a letter sent by Issa to Holder about the call “describes Fallon as ‘audibly shaken’ when he realizes his request to leak documents to help get ahead of news stories about them was mistakenly made to the very office he was seeking to undermine.”

.. The Executive is actually acting in concert with the House minority to obstruct the investigative acts of the House majority . They are leaking news stories through to the House DemoCraps , who then leak them to so – called ” friendly ” members of the LameStream media . They do it to try to get ahead of a news story in order to manage a news cycle …

.. it is , to say the least , not what they should be doing . They should be co – operating with the House and the Senate , fairly and equally , no matter who runs the place . Conspiring with one side against the other helps to damage our system of government and helps to endanger our rights …

… and These Idiots Want Congress to Pass a Bill [#Immigration Reform]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 20th,2016

.. when the ObamaCrap Administration cannot obey a simple injunction that is issued by a judge …

.. the State of Texas and 25 other states brought a suit to stop His Lordship ‘ s abusive executive actions . They got lucky , and found a sympathetic judge in Texas . District Judge Andrew Hanen issued an injunction that blocked his executive action on immigration . So what else happens …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. those idiots continued to issue even more DAPA permits , even though a federal judge said NO ! . Oh , the federal judge is going to love this …

.. and the Administration wants Congress to cooperate with them on passing an immigration bill ? Are they crazy ! …

… What is It with Judge Merrick Garland ?? [#judicial activist]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 21st,2016

.. he is a fine lawyer , a top graduate of Harvard Law School ..

.. he was an excellent prosecutor , leading the team that went after Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City bombing case ..

.. he has been a decent judge and appeals court judge ..

.. but ..

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. he is a judicial activist . Yes , that is a serious problem ..

.. Yes , he is not as bad a nominee as POTUS could have chosen . There are radical nuts out there , ones such as Patricia Merritt and Goodwin Liu , that POTUS might have chosen . There is also good reason why POTUS did not choose them — they would not have had a whisp of a prayer of getting a hearing , much less getting confirmed to SCOTUS . So POTUS did not nominate them . He went with someone safer , like Garland ..

.. but Garland is still a judicial activist . A moderate , yes , but still a judicial activist by definition . POTUS has poisoned the federal bench enough with these radical activists . it will take months , if not years of impeachment trails and convictions to remove them all . So do allow this guy on the court ..

… Politically Correct InJustice [#Dept of InJustice]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,February 27th,2016

.. with any other administration , it would be criminal …

.. with this one , it is par for the course …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the interview segment ..

.. the F.B.I. and other law enforcement agencies cannot fully investigate possible terrorist cells and agencies for the worst of reasons . The Department of InJustice has put P.C. limitations on them that limits their ability to fully and properly investigate a terrorist situation . As a result , the investigation is incomplete , and without the full detail a proper report needs …

… It is a Real Bad Move to Piss off a Federal judge [#Texas v US]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,January 27th,2016

.. now that the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favour of the plaintiffs [in terms of the injunction] , well , now , it should motivate the Federal Government to substantially and fully comply with Judge Hanen ‘ s order ..

.. well , now , Judge Hanen is now pissed ..

.. the Government is still making approvals of both D.A.C.A. and D.A.P.A. . Even though with the injunction they were told specifically not to . They are still up to it ..

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. Judge Hanen has summoned quite a few people to a hearing in August . Those summoned include the H.H.S. Secretary and the Secretary of Homeland Security . I would not be surprised of our new AG , Loretta Lynch , were not added to the list . She would deserve it , even though it was former AG Holder ‘ s inaction that contributed to all of this …

.. they should also bring their checkbooks . The judge is threating the whole crew with civil contempt findings if they have not fully complied with the original injuction . Somehow I get the idea that a finding of criminal contempt may not be far behind …

… The F.C.C. has not Gotten the Message [#internet regulation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 1st,2016

.. you would think that the Federal Communications Commission [the F.C.C.] would have gotten the message , by now .

.. Congress has said no to ” Net neutraility . ” Twice . Also , the federal appeals courts [the D.C. Circuit Court , to be specific] has also SAID ” no ” to ” Net Neutrality . ” Twice more …

.. well , I guess that it is time for Round 3 …

.. [h/t — CNSNews.com]..
.. [link] to the news article ..

.. ISPs and other companies will not stand for this . There will be a huge bi – partisan majority in Congress to overrule the F.C.C. . Not only that , they will act to amend federal law to specifically state that the Internet is NOT a public utility , and that ” Net Neutrality ” is not the will of Congress …

.. either this bill or the Iran Sanctions bill will be the first one in which His Lordship ‘ s veto is overridden …

… The Issue is ” Disparate Impact ” [#legal theory]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 5th,2015

.. my home state of Ohio is involved in one honey of a brawl over the management of early voting . It is a doozy . Now the US Supreme Court has gotten involved . They had no choice , to be honest …

.. The political leadership thought that there needed to be ” reform of the reform . ” Early voting is nice , to be sure . But it is too much of a good thing . The Ohio Legislature acted to bring some rhyme and reason , along with some restraint to the process . They pulled back the reins on the Early Voting process , and granted the county boards of election [who , along with the Secretary of State , manage the process in Ohio] more ability to manage their financial and personnel resources …

.. The radical left had a massive hissy fit . So , as usual , they decided to bring a lawsuit . They wanted to find a ” friendly judge . ” Unfortunately , downstate , in the central and southern districts of the state , they found one .  The radical activists sought out a friendly judge in order to get a favourable ruling in their lawsuit . They brought the lawsuit in order to bring back elements of early voting that the state of Ohio does not deseire to have remain in effect …

.. These are things that the State has found are totally unnecessary .One is ” Golden Week , ” where people may register and then vote at the same time . That is outrageous . A county board of elections in my state deserves the right to check databases in order to verify the legitimacy of the registration . Another is evening voting , along with Sunday voting . The BOEs have a right to manage their resources , according to the will of the vovters and the legislature of the State of Ohio . It is not the province of a radical activist judge , whether it be a district court judge , or a group of appeals court judges , to impose their judgement , where their idea of the law has been total rejected by the vast majority of the courts …

.. Theier problem is over what is known in legal circles as ” disparate impact ” legal theory . Generally , you need to have direct impact of evidence of discrimination to interfere with their management of their affairs . What disparate impact does is sinister . It infers discrimination based upon the numerical impact on various ” protected classes , ” such as minorities . Once that happens , then the burden of proof flips to the other party to prove legitimacy , which , usually is next to impossible …

.. The impact of ” disparate impact ” usually ends up leading to greatly enhanced affirmative action . Not just affirmative outreach to affected groups , mind you … It means the adoption of numerial goals , or , in effect , quotas , by class , gender , etc …

.. there you see the problem . The liberals and the radical activists still cling to this outdated and racist legal theory . It has been discredited , time after time after time . Yet , these nutjobs still act to cling to this …

… No , Mr. Attorney General , You are Grossly Mistaken [#law enforcement]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,January 25th,2015

.. AG Eric Holder feels that his biggest failure as Attorney General was the failure to enact gun control . He is grossly mistaken …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the interview segment ..

.. What is his biggest failure ? My guestimate is that his gross failure to enforce the law . He has failed at that very , very badly . His gross misuse of the tools of his office is a close second …

… Bombshell ! update [#Fast and Furious]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 14th,2014

.. well , someone finally called out the ObamaCraps ..

.. unfortunately , it was not Congress .

.. the Congressional subpoena is still pending . After that , AG Holder was cited for contempt for a second time . Also , the House brought suit in the US District Court to enforce the committee subpoena . At least as of now , there has been no news notice of the court filing …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the judicial news …

.. Judge Bates [by the way , a Bush 43 appointee] has ruled that the Holder Department of Injustice and the ObamaCrap Administration has to produce what is known as a ” Vaughn Index . ” A Vaughn Index shows the identity and short form of the content of documents that are being withheld under a claim of privilege . With the court order , especially with the F.O.I.A. case , the Judge has determined , within limits , that the privilege claim is tetantively a ” crock of [bleep] . ” So , the ObamaCraps have a serious problem …

.. usually a Vaughn Index is dealt with under ” seal . ” So , it will still be a while before we know anything about what the ObamaCrap Administration is playing ” fast and cute ” about . I wonder what is so ” white hot ” that they felt that they had to withhold it …

.. if Judge Bates allows either the index or the docs out into the public domain , this could get real interesting , folks . Fast ! …

… So , Lois Lerner has been talking …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,March 13th,2014

.. but to the Department of InJustice , not to Congress .

.. it really makes you wonder what is going on at Main InJustice …

.. god help the DemoCraps if they lose the Senate . Especially if they lose by big numbers . It does not take going from the low 50s or the mid 50s to 67 all that hard once the case is made in public …

… Kathleen Sebelius is in Big Trouble …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 10th,2014

.. Sebelius has really stepped in it , this time .

.. the co – ordination with Enroll America , H.H.S. , and the ObamaCrap White House ? That is one thing .

.. however , the fundraising for Enroll America ? One Hundred percent illegal . It violates the Public Health Service Act , as well as , more importantly , the Anti – Deficiency Act . You cannot have people working in government soliciting money outside of the budgetary process , and using it to spend on purposes related to their department . She cannot do that .

.. She should damn well have known better …
