On Sunday’s edition of CNN’s “State of The Union,” Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., revealed new testimony from IRS employees that indicate they were directed to target Tea Party groups from higher-ups in their Washington, D.C. headquarters, Fox News reported.
“As late as last week,” Issa said, “the [Obama] administration was still trying to say the [IRS targeting scandal] was from a few rogue agents in Cincinnati, when in fact the indication is that they were directly being ordered from Washington.”
At this moment, no daily news cycle is complete without one hearing or reading the word “Watergate” in connection with the four Obama Administration scandals currently swirling around in various stages of unraveling.
For example, look no further than PJM yesterday with a piece by Ed Driscoll titled Obama and the IRS: Worse Than Watergate. That title perfectly illustrates the Watergate reference framework across all media platforms, regardless of ideological tilt.
Currently, the four scandals are categorized in one of three ways: nothing like Watergate, worse than Watergate, or just like Watergate.
Absent the emergence of scores of elected Democrats in Congress with Howard Baker-like character, does any power exist in Washington, D.C. that can hold the lawless Obama Administration accountable?
It’s not as if defiance, if not out-right abrogation, of the Rule of Law by President Barack Obama wasn’t known before his re-election. Despite contempt citations for illegally imposed deepwater oil drilling moratoriums in the Gulf of Mexico, executive orders defying welfare-to-work laws, and Continue reading
It’s hard to get rid of a career bureaucrat, even at the supervisory level. “After you’ve been here for a year, it’s easier to kill you than fire you.” That’s what my co-workers at the Bureau of Labor Statistics would tell me on a sunny day, after we’d used up our lunch hour, but didn’t want to go back to work yet.
An Obama Administration that first sought to limit freedom of religion to worship also solicited the content of the prayers of political opponents whose free political speech rights they denied in the Election of 2012.
When Democratic Party-like “satraps” sought to eliminate King Darius’s favorite Jew from influencing the Mede then ruling Persia, they conspired to appeal to the King’s vanity with an ordinance that:
With apologies to Winston Churchill, it might be said of Sen. Barbara Boxer that “those that fail to learn from history are doomed to rewrite it.” During a Senate floor speech Tuesday, The Daily Caller writes, the Democratic senator from California blamed the tornado that ravaged Oklahoma on global warming.
It is no surprise that the government agency responsible for taxing the rich and funding the liberal management of our lives for the collective would be a bastion of the most partisan members of the Democratic Party, willing to wield the hammer that is government power for the various factions of the gangster-like mob it has become.
Current tax law, or what passes for “law,” requires tyranny in its enforcement. The Internal Revenue Service has always been uniquely above the law with its unique right to preemptive seizure of a target’s property and a reverse burden of proof that requires accused taxpayers to prove their innocence.
Another 501(c)(3) group has confirmed it was targeted by the IRS, but this act of malfeasance should have special significance for the president.
A Pennsylvania-based nonprofit educational group that styles itself Constitutional Organization of Liberty (COOL), a project of the Alexander Hamilton Institute for Constitutional Studies, has informed LU in an exclusive that it was singled out by the IRS for additional scrutiny because of its focus on the U.S. Constitution. Thems should be fighting words for a constitutional scholar like President Obama.
What a difference damning testimony from high-level members of the diplomatic corps makes! Just three days have passed since three previously disallowed whistleblowers appeared before the House Oversight Committee to testify that the administration lied and diplomats died, and already the once-fawning MSM are jumping ship in droves, much like the lemmings they are.
