We’re well past the limit for “enemy action.”

Saturday, June 21st, 2014

Let’s revue the Obama IRS department’s attack on the First Amendment.

Gateway Pundit has a good list of the organizations illegally targeted by the IRS

Not only has Lois “I plead the Fifth” Lerner’s computer “crashed”, taking all email out with it.  The computers of six other IRS employees involved in this criminal activity by the Obama administration have “crashed”, taking all email out with them.

Investor’s Business Daily notes the following about those six:

One of the seven people, including Lois Lerner who lost emails from the period of Tea Party targeting by the IRS, served as chief of staff to former IRS head Steven Miller. She also made 35 visits to the White House.

It seems six more IRS officials have lost critical emails from that period, a seeming statistical impossibility that shouts out a conspiracy to obstruct justice, and more violations of the Federal Records Act, which requires paper copies of these emails to be printed and stored just in case of computer problems.
One of those officials who received Lerner emails and also lost them was Nikole Flax, chief of staff to former IRS Commissioner Steven Miller. Miller, who was fired in the wake of the targeting scandal, visited the White House more than most Cabinet members.
Flax, as the Daily Caller reports, “made 31 visits to the White House between July 12, 2010, and May 8, 2013, according to White House visitor logs.”

The visits started just as the IRS’ targeting of the Tea Party began; the last occurred two days before the scandal broke in May 2013. On the day of her last visit, according to the Daily Caller, Flax got an email from Lerner seeking advice on a plan to coordinate with the Justice Department to criminally prosecute conservative activists.

Responding to this email, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request filed by Judicial Watch, Flax gave the green light to Lerner’s plan to coordinate criminal prosecutions with DOJ, a suggestion that had been made by Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse.

We also know that Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings’ staff was in contact with Lerner about the conservative group True the Vote.

That’s right kids.  Members of congress, all democrats, were in contact with IRS, requesting criminal prosecution of conservative groups, for exercising their First Amendment rights.

If this is what escaped the information shutdown by Obama administration, what was in those “lost” emails that the IRS doesn’t want the American people to see, must be pretty damning.

According the Moscow rules, we (as in the American people) are well past the count for “enemy action” in the IRS’ destruction of evidence.

Sweet, sweet Schadenfreude….

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Michael Graham writes the following about our Dear Leader’s Press Secretary:

It was one of the tastiest servings of schadenfreude I’ve sampled in a long time.  Watching Carney lie is boring. Watching him lie while he knows everyone watching knows he’s lying is a delight.

What we’ve known from the beginning–and the folks at ABC News are just starting to figure outis that the White House knew within 24 hours--48 max–that the Benghazi consulate was destroyed by a pre-planned, organized attack on the anniversary of 9/11 by Al Qaeda. Which means every time Hillary Clinton said “video” at Chris Stevens funeral or President Obama said it at the UN or Susan Rice said it on TV–they were lying.

They were lying because the CIA, the State Department and the Libyan government has all told them the truth within a day of the attack.

Bottom line, Carney is moving into Baghdad Bob territory every time he opens his mouth about Benghazi.

Of course, the Obama cultists “don’t care” about the President and his staff lying repeatedly to the American people, as long as it is their “lightbringer” doing the lying.

Obama’s Kagen Coverup

Saturday, October 8th, 2011

Investor’s Business Daily reports:

“Eric Holder’s Justice Department has rebuffed numerous Freedom of Information Act requests to get to the bottom of Kagan’s role as solicitor general in the successful Obama political strategy to get health reform enacted. But internal communications that are already public themselves make for a smoking gun.

How about this Jan. 8, 2010, email featuring the subject line “Re: Health Care Defense” from former Deputy Solicitor General/now-acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal to Associate Attorney General Brian Hauck: “Brian, Elena would definitely like OSG (Office of Solicitor General) to be involved in this set of issues … we will bring in Elena as needed.”

In another email that same day, Hauck asked Katyal about putting together a group “to defend against inevitable challenges” to ObamaCare. Ketel replies, “Absolutely right on. Let’s crush them. I’ll speak with Elena and designate someone.”

It look like the kindest thing you could say about Elena Kagan’s  Supreme Court nomination testimony, and the statements of Obama administration officials were “deceitful” when they repeatedly stated that she was not involved in getting Obama-Care passed.

Justice Kagan needs to announce immediately that she will recuse  herself from any and all Supreme Court cases involving Obamacare.

If she does not, the House Judiciary Committee, and bipartisan group such as Judicial Watch,  should step up their investigation in to her involvement  in passing Obamacare.

The question remains, why is the Obama White House actively involved in a cover up of Elena Kagan’s involvement in the President’s signature legislation? What did Obama know and when did he know it?

What did Obama know and when did he know it?

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

By way of Ms. Malkin, comes this LA Times story that shows the Obama White House knew about the corrupt ATF “Fast & Furious” program very, very early on.

Newly obtained emails show that the White House was better informed about a failed gun-tracking operation on the border with Mexico than was previously known.

Three White House national security officials were given some details about the operation, dubbed Fast and Furious. The operation allowed firearms to be illegally purchased, with the goal of tracking them to Mexican drug cartels. But the effort went out of control after agents lost track of many of the weapons.

The supervisor of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives operation in Phoenix specifically mentioned Fast and Furious in at least one email to a White House national security official, and two other White House colleagues were briefed on reports from the supervisor, according to White House emails and a senior administration official.

Our Dear Leader‘s administration has responded to the “Fast & Furious” scandal by continuing their war on transparency. ATF Head Kenneth Melson is being shuffled out of office.  It is as if the Obama administration doesn’t want him to answer any questions about the “Fast  & Furious” scandal.

Even the Obama cheerleaders at CBS News are starting to use the word “coverup.”

Congressional investigators tell CBS News there’s evidence the U.S. Attorney’s office in Arizona sought to cover up a link between their controversial gunwalking operation known as “Fast and Furious” and the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Terry was murdered in Arizona near the US border last December. Two assault rifles ATF had allegedly allowed onto the street without interdiction were found at the scene.

But the US Attorney’s office working both the Terry murder and the “Fast and Furious” operation did not immediately disclose the two had any link. Two Republicans investigating the scandal, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) say there’s evidence that officials at ATF and the US Attorney’s office sought to hide the connection.

HT to Ace for the CBS News “coverup” story.

Obama is channeling Nixon again

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

The money quote:

“This Obama Justice Department reminds me of nothing so much as the Nixon Justice Department. You have the scent of high-level knowledge of serious wrongdoing and you have the smell of cover-up and I think the stench of cover-up on this gun-running operation is very strong indeed.”

What did President Obama know and when did he know it?
