DOJ Lets Lois Lerner, IRS Off the Hook

It was a foregone conclusion, but the Obama Administration’s right hand just couldn’t find anything wrong with what the left hand did, even if it was designed to help the president win a second term by targeting his political opponents. The Department of so-called Justice announced Friday that Lois Lerner and other IRS managers will not face any charges after singling out for harassment conservative groups that applied for nonprofit status leading up to the 2012 election. Dozens of conservative Read more […]

IRS Conducting Criminal Investigation of Lois Lerner Emails

But while they say they are conducting a criminal investigation, what are the chances that this is not going to be a cover-up? Finally! The Washington Post reports, “IRS watchdog reveals Lois Lerner missing emails now subject of criminal probe.” The IRS’s inspector general confirmed Thursday it is conducting a criminal investigation into how Lois G. Lerner’s emails disappeared, saying it took only two weeks for investigators to find hundreds of tapes the agency’s chief had told Read more […]

Healthcare.gov Security Required Cover Ups

The lesson of the following headline on Healthcare.gov security, or the lack of it, is that, when soulless, ethically-devoid power politics is supreme, you can never trust the government. Period. End of story. For your reading today is a headline from the Daily Signal: “Government Insider Warned of HealthCare.gov Security Risks: ‘I Am Tired of the Cover Ups’” Government insiders who flagged security issues prior to the launch of HealthCare.gov were right to be concerned. That’s Read more […]

Mocking the IRS Only Works If You Actually Abolish the IRS

Republican Texas Representative Steve Stockman put out a press release Friday that said in part: Taxpayers who do not produce documents for the Internal Revenue Service will be able to offer a variety of dubious excuses under legislation introduced by Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX 36) a week after the IRS offered an incredibly dubious excuse for its failure to turn documents over to House investigators. “The United States was founded on the belief government is subservient and accountable to the Read more […]

If Congress Isn’t Threatening IRS Liars With Jail Time Then They Are Attacking Americans

Time to start putting folks in jail, beginning with Lois Lerner. No more kid gloves. From the heroic Sharyl Attkisson: “Lois Lerner’s Hard Drive: Gone, Gone, Gone.” “We’ve been informed that the hard drive has been thrown away,” Politico quotes Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) as having said “in a brief hallway interview.” House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) subpoenaed Lerner’s damaged hard drive earlier this week after the IRS reported that a computer crash Read more […]

Even While They Used the VA Hospital to Promote Obamacare They Knew It was Failing and Did Nothing!

As Bob Allen pointed out recently, the Obama regime’s defenders (he quoted someone pointing to Paul Krugman) used the VA Hospitals as proof that Obamacare would drastically improve American medical practice. Everyone in the administration knows that Krugman is out there promoting the Obama agenda. To be silent while he extolled the virtues of the Veterans’ Affairs bureaucracy is to participate in the argument. Especially when you know better. Because the White House did know better.

Socialism In Medicine Means Shortages of Medicine: “Secret VA List” Is An Example of the Inevitable

There is a rule for Veterans Affairs: when a veteran calls for an appointment he must be seen in two to four weeks. But this rule has nothing to do with reality. The reality is that there are only so many doctors with the funds that are available. If too many veterans call to see a doctor, they can’t follow the rule. People should be forced to acknowledge that the resources are inadequate to make the rule work. But that’s not how politics works. Politicians only want to hear from well-paid Read more […]

Barack Obama’s IRS Cover-up: We Look Stupid If We Act Surprised

From the Washington Examiner: A House chairman probing the IRS scandal on Wednesday said that President Obama has reneged on a promise to have his aides cooperate with the investigation, forcing the Ways and Means Committee to conduct a dragnet for emails and documents needed to smoke out the truth.

Jail Martha Stewart & Ignore Bernie Madoff: Prosecute Petty Thieves To Cover For Banker Crime Lords

From the Washington Post: A bank executive in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia was sentenced to 23 years in federal prison. Another from Orlando received eight years.
