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.

Dozens of conservative Read more […]

IRS Targeting of Conservatives: Still Happening

IRS targeting of conservative groups is still going on according to Darrell Issa. Issa is not the only one claiming that the IRS is engaging in criminal acts.

Lois Lerner Emails Were Deleted by IRS Despite Subpoena

They claim the Lois Lerner emails were erased with no intention of hiding evidence. It is a new day and, thus, a new opportunity for the IRS to be shameless about hiding evidence. It is hard to keep up with each new development. The last thing I reported was the IRS claiming to find more emails but refusing to give them up. Now, the Washington Times reports, “IRS erased Lois Lerner’s emails even after subpoena, audit says.” The IRS erased backup takes with Lois G. Lerner’s emails even Read more […]

Lois Lerner Was Paid Huge Bonuses; Now Lives on Taxpayers

You won’t believe what Lois Lerner was paid for attacking conservatives with the power of the IRS. Being a White House tool can be very profitable. The Washington Free Beacon reports, “Lois Lerner Received $129K in Bonuses.” Former IRS official Lois Lerner received $129,300 in bonuses between 2010 and 2013, records obtained through the Freedom of Information Act show.

White House Keeps IRS Documents Hidden

IRS Documents about targeting conservatives are being kept secret from the press. A man who is capable of publicly running a campaign that pretends to oppose “gay marriage,” and then undergo a fake “evolving” of views until he starts forcing it all over the planet, is not going to have a problem spitting on the Freedom of Information Act. I’m surprised the Obama Administration didn’t claim that the information was lost on an unbacked-up defunct hard drive. The Hill reports, Read more […]

IRS Never Looked for Lois Lerner Emails

As you are probably aware, the IRS claimed that the Lois Lerner emails got lost, without any back up, through a computer hard drive crash. In fact, this happened to several other employees. The idea that federal records could disappear without a trace, records that the IRS was legally obligated to store, seemed insane. It is insane. So Congress ordered the IRS to search for the files to see if they could retrieve all or some of them. Nothing turned up… Because the IRS never looked. As Read more […]

We Need a Special Prosecutor for the IRS Scandal

Why do we need a special prosecutor? The entire country has a stake in ensuring that the IRS is not “weaponized” in the hands of any Party or ideology. Those not supporting this investigation are consummate fools, because a weaponized IRS can be turned around against others when the winds of political power change. Here is Fox News’ coverage of the story: “IRS lawyer: Lois Lerner’s BlackBerry deliberately destroyed after start of congressional probe.” Lois Lerner’s BlackBerry was Read more […]

The Lois Lerner Emails Mysteriously Re-Appear

Well, lo and behold… despite sworn testimony before Congress saying they DON’T exist, Lois Lerner’s emails magically DO exist in a backup. Or… at least they did, before all of these delays gave a criminal Administration time to go selectively wipe those backups, right?

IRS Gave Lois Lerner a Bonus to Make Her Want to Keep Up Her Work

The Weekly Standard reports that the IRS gave Lois Lerner a bonus, specifically a “retention bonus”—an incentive for her to keep her job harrassing, obstructing, and burdening conservative taxpayers whose money was used to offer her that bonus.
