Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 7th,2016

.. now , the I.R.S. is pinned …

.. the Lerner e – mails do exist . They have been subpoenaed . They have also been F.O.I.A.ed (by Judicial Watch , naturally) …

.. so , guess what time it is ?? …

.. it is time to cough them up . It would be preferable that it be done by a tech expert , overseen by a Special Master , appointed by a federal court . Then , things could get very , very interesting …

… Can’t the ObamaCraps stay out of Trouble ?!?! [#Main InJustice]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,September 18th,2016

.. yes , Main InJustice , again ..

.. it seems that those dummies were far more involved in the IRSGate scandal than anyone ever realized . Worse yet , they have covered up the fact that they have an enormous amount of taxpayer information . This info is stuff that they should not have , and that the I.R.S. should never have played around with in the first place …

.. sooner or later , there is going to be an Independent Counsel looking at all of this . When he / she does , they are going to have a great deal of a mess to dig their way out of , to be sure …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 8th,2016

.. yep , Friday news dump ..

.. right before Thanksgiving ..

.. more IRS e – mails …. A whole shitload of them … and it is only the beginning , I think …

.. [link] to the e – mail dump …

.. the X-Mas season is going to make for some interesting reading , in terms of IRSgate . Once these hush puppies are fully put out , you might be surprised at what is found in them ..

.. Oh , also … it is said that there will be no ” red meat ” vis-à-vis the ObamaCrap White House . Do Not Be so sure about that ..

.. these people have been that arrogant and that incredibly stupid about things , they have been leaving a paper trail about their screw – ups all over the place . Just look at GruberGate , for God ‘ s Sake . Professor Gruber ‘ s videos were just sitting out there on YouTube . It took an intrepid individual investment adviser from suburban Philly who got really , really pissed at the O.C. …

.. so what did he do ? He started digging and researching . It took quite a lot of it , though , but Wow ! He hit the Comstock Lode of political gigagaffes . Now , it has done grave damage to Jonathan Gruber ‘ s reputation , and also to that of the ObamaCraps ‘ political reputation . Journalists of all stripes are

… Grover Norquist makes some Explosive Allegations [#IRSGate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 7th,2016

.. to be honest , I do not doubt them ..

.. the big problem is going to be proving them , however ..

.. There is no doubt about the intentional targeting of conservative groups . Also , no liberal groups were targeted . None . The big question is where the whole proceeding originated …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog article ..

.. however , did the whole enterprise originate in the White House ? [#I think so]… also , can it be proven [#possibly] …

.. what will help is the newer precedent on FOIA cases , especially F.O.I.A. court suits . It does not matter whether the judges are liberal or are conservative , the judiciary ahs had it with the screwing around with the FOIA Act by the Executive branch . So , the FOIA route is the best possibility to rpove the allegations …

… Now the Senate takes up the Cause [#IRSGate investigation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 30th,2015

.. I wish them luck , guys ..

.. considering how co – operative that the ObamaCrap White House has been with the House of Representatives , good luck . Has there been communication between the ObamaCraps and the IRS , though ?? …

.. [h/t — ReclaimOurRepublic.wordpress.com]..
.. [link] to the blog opinion …

.. undoubtedly , yes .

.. the big problem is getting the ObamaCraps to admit it . A good thing to have is to have a hook , a trump card , a wedge to get in under the White House to force their hand . That would be nice … Especially given the updated F.O.I.A. lawsuit precedents , that route would be a powerful wedge …

.. calling Judicial Watch ! …

… Now This ?!?! [#WS GAB][#IRSGate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 22nd,2015

.. e – mails between Lois Lerner and Kevin Kennedy , the director of Wisconsin Governmental Accountability Board [G.A.B.] reveal acts of co – ordination between the IRS official and the G.A.B. …

.. it now connects into Wisconsin politics . Wisconsin has a peculiar law [called the ” John Doe ” law] that allows prosecutors to conduct secret investigations into targets without their knowledge . It gets worse . The ” John Doe ” law does not allow the targets , once they find out about the investigation [and its demands] to either publically comment on the investigation , or to engage a defense counse in order to defend themselves . That is bad , but it gets worse ..

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

.. THE GAB ‘ s goverening board [composed of 7 unelected judges] voted to not allow the Director and the staff to not co – operate with the various John Doe inquiries . yet the Direct and the staff did so anyway …

.. things are bad enough , and it calls for , to be honest , it cries out for a federal investigation and the appointment of a special prosecutor . Bet yet , it should call for the appointment of an Independent Counsel ..

… I am Afraid that It Goes to the Top [#IRSGate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,June 29th,2014

.. my educated guess is that the IRSGate scandal is a colossal doozy . I believe that it goes almost all the way to the top [POTUS]…

.. [h/t — m.NatIONALReview]..
.. [LINK].. to the commentary …

.. the big issue now is how much pressure needs to be applied to force AG Holder ‘ s hand . If Holder leaves , especially next year , there is no way that a new AG will be confirmed without several Independent Counsels being appointed [IRSGate , for sure , VAGate , ditto , Fast & Furious , probable , etc]..

… Elijah Cummings is in Deep Trouble [#IRSGate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 25th,2014

.. if we were having an honest and thorough investigation of the IRS affair involving Lois Lerner …

.. it may take years , and it may rely on an executive branch screwup to appoint an Independent Counsel . But eventually , I believe , justice will be done …

.. [h/t — theGatewayPundit]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. even more pressure will be applied once the DemoCraps get their butts kicked in November , and these scumbags lose the Senate . Then , it will be interesting to see how many seats the GOP picks up , and how close that they can get to the magic number of 67 (to remove Obama & Biden) …

.. Cummings playing footsie with True the Vote ‘ s IRS info and its IRS file both are felonies . Once Lerner and others break , it will be interesting to see how high up IRSGate goes . I do not think that it will reach into the ObamaCrap White House , but it is possible …

… Why Does Lois Lerner stay Silent ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,March 16th,2014

.. it is not because that she is afraid of being prosecuted ..

.. there is an ObamaCrap crony who is in charge of the IRSgate investigation . Only shame by Congress will force that crony off of the dime , and force the ObamaCrap Department of InJustice to appoint someone more independent of the Administration . She is talking to them , but not to Congress … Why ??

.. it is …

So, Lois Lerner still won’t talk about her role in the illegal targeting and harassment by the IRS of conservative and Tea Party groups seeking 501(c)(4) tax exemptions. Lerner appeared for a second time Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and claimed her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself. It isn’t hard to figure out why Lerner’s lips are sealed.

First, she knows the House of Representatives can cite her for contempt of Congress, but Attorney General Eric Holder would decide whether she is prosecuted on that charge. Lerner need not worry since President Obama has already told the world there wasn’t “a smidgen of corruption” in the IRS actions, and Holder allowed a major Obama campaign contributor to have a role in Department of Justice‘s faux investigation of the scandal.

The second and far more revealing reason Lerner is being what the Mafia calls “a good soldier” is seen in the questions posed to her by Rep. Darrell Issa, the California Republican who chairs the oversight panel. For example, Issa noted that Lerner told a Duke University group in October 2010 that “everyone is up in arms” over the Supreme Court‘s Citizens United decision and that “the Federal Election Commission can’t do anything about it. They want the IRS to fix the problem.” Lerner refused to answer Issa’s request that she explain who was the “they” to which she referred or how they made clear their desire that the IRS “fix the problem.”

Similarly, Issa asked about her statement in a September 2010 email to subordinates in which she directed them to begin “a c4 project” and warned them that “we need to be cautious so it isn’t a per se political project.” Lerner refused to explain why she was worried that the project could be viewed as political. Then Issa asked her about a February 2011 email in which she said “Tea Party Matter very dangerous.” Lerner refused to say either what the Tea Party “matter” was or why she viewed it as “dangerous.”

Finally, Issa told Lerner that another IRS executive had told the oversight panel that she had ordered that Tea Party applications be subjected to a “multi-level review.” She refused to explain why she singled out Tea Party applications for such reviews.

These simple questions – each based on indisputable facts – establish that somebody outside of the IRS told her they wanted the tax agency to “fix” something involving groups seeking 501(c)(4) tax status, that she directed subordinates to begin a (c)(4) project she feared could be seen as “political,” that she viewed Tea Party groups as “dangerous,” and that she ordered that such groups be subjected to “multi-level review.”

Those are the four essential points of the IRS scandal : … Who ordered the tax agency to get involved, who in the tax agency responded, who they targeted and what actions they took. She cannot answer these questions because, as she herself has claimed, that would be incriminating. Lerner and others must hope Issa doesn’t already have the answers.

.. LEC — I would add in a fifth point — Why ?

.. LEC again here — God in Heaven help the Administration presuming the full truth comes out … if the ObamaCrap White House is involved , if it is even only at the staff level , it will do grave damage to the Obama Administration . As arrogant as these bastards and bitches are , I think that they were stupid enough to put it down on e – mail that orders came from highers – up , and who got the orders … and why …
