CNN is, at the very least, whitewashing the IRS scandal for the Obama administration. At worst, they are engaging in an outright cover-up of the scandal. CNN recently posted an article that essentially said the IRS scandal was not politically motivated. This is an amazing turn of events considering that the investigation into the matter has yet to be concluded, and no firm decisions have been arrived at. The fact that a “news” organization could stand up and say “even though an investigation is ongoing, the government probably didn’t do anything wrong” is absurd.Write comment (0 Comments)
The controversy over the IRS’s harassment of conservative groups continues. President Obama’s team continues to blame low-level bureaucrats. Some conservatives suspect a more sinister explanation: that the levers of government were used to attack an existential threat to the president’s 2012 reelection. The president and his party dismiss this as a paranoid fantasy. The evidence, however, is enough to make one believe that targeting Tea Party groups would have been an effective campaign strategy going into the 2012 election cycle.Write comment (0 Comments)
The “mainstream” media is so predictably liberal, it’s hysterical. Well, not so hysterical for St. Louis KMOV news anchor Larry Conners, who was targeted by the IRS and then fired after a contentious interview with President Obama.Write comment (0 Comments)
Two Treasury Department inspectors general revealed last week someone erased computer evidence during the investigation into the IRS targeting scandal—months after the agency was ordered to preserve the documents.Timothy Camus and J. Russell George made the disclosure during a Thursday hearing of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. They said 422 backup tapes were destroyed and about 24,000 emails were lost in March 2014, the same month IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told Congress the agency was fully complying with the investigation.Write comment (0 Comments)
The IRS scandal just gets bigger and bigger. No ordinary scandal, this is the very definition of an un-American, Joe McCarthy-style persecution. This is Gambino Crime Family criminal behavior. We now officially know America is being run by a gangster government, the Obama Crime Family.
The real question is “Will the same IRS (or IRS-like bureaucracy) that targeted and persecuted conservatives, GOP donors, Tea Party groups, Pro Israel Jewish Groups, Christian groups, Pro Life groups, and outspoken critics of the President (like me), now use Obamacare to deny us medical care?”Write comment (0 Comments)
