Could The IRS Scandal Bring Down Obama?

Could The IRS Scandal Bring Down Obama?
PHOTOS.COM

So the first head has rolled in the scandal that has engulfed the Internal Revenue Service. On Wednesday, President Barack Obama ordered Acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller to get the ax.

And you can bet that if the powers that be in Washington could turn back the clock, Douglas Shulman’s head would also be on the chopping block. After all, he was the IRS commissioner last year who flatly denied that his agency had ever targeted Tea Party groups and other conservative organizations.

“There’s absolutely no targeting,” Shulman testified before a congressional committee last March. But of course there was. Last Friday, the IRS admitted as much — although it tried to put all the blame on a bunch of low-level employees at its office in Cincinnati.

After intimidating honest taxpayers for decades, the IRS is finally on the receiving end of some nasty publicity. The President has called its behavior “outrageous.” The FBI is launching an investigation of possible criminal violations. Isn’t it delightful?

The scandal erupted last week when an IRS official admitted for the first time — after high-level officials had denied it for years — that the agency singled out groups that had the words “Tea Party” or “Patriots” in their name for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status.

And it wasn’t just such obvious right-wing organizations. If your group focused on government spending, debt or taxes, or if it criticized how the country was being run, chances are it would make the list. Heck, even such an innocuous objective as “trying to make America a better place to live” could be enough to get your application flagged.

This isn’t the first time that such allegations have been made. In fact, Senator Orin Hatch (R-Utah) said it was precisely because he had heard such complaints that he specifically asked the IRS commissioner about them last year. On three separate occasions, Miller assured the Senator that there was no truth to the accusations.

Miller “basically misled me and purposefully did so,” Hatch said earlier this week. “He purposely misled me because he knew better.” And in a classic bit of understatement, the Utah Republican concluded, “That bothers me quite a bit.”

It’s probably no coincidence that the scandal first erupted last Friday afternoon. That is the traditional time for Washington spinmeisters to release bad news, since most folks are thinking more about their plans for the weekend than what the folks in Washington are up to. The worried parties no doubt hope that by the time Monday morning rolls around, any embarrassing disclosures from last Friday will be long forgotten.

That certainly didn’t happen this time. In fact, every passing day brought forth new and even more damaging revelations. By Tuesday, the Boston Herald actually ran the word “Obamagate” in bold, black type on its front page. Another headline read, “Scandals Invoke Comparison To Nixon.”

I’ll bet that last one made some White House staffers cringe. They remember (or surely have been told about) the scandal that erupted four decades earlier, when White House counsel John Dean told a congressional committee that Richard Nixon’s “enemies list” was turned over to the IRS, with instructions to “use the available federal machinery to screw our political enemies.”

As a result, when the House of Representatives drew up articles of impeachment against Nixon in 1974, the second article accused the president of using “income tax audits or other income tax investigations” to intimidate his political opponents.

Could something similar happen again? Veteran political analyst and best-selling author Dick Morris says absolutely:

What’s going to happen is you’re going to get a congressional hearing. They’re going to call some of these people under oath. They’ll call Miller for example, the head of the IRS, they’ll call [Douglas] Shulman, the former head of the IRS, and they’ll ask, did you know about this?

Then the obvious question is who else knew? Who did you tell? I doubt that there’s a lot of people who are willing to commit perjury to save the president, and undoubtedly what they’ll say is, well, I told such and such in the White House. Then they’ll get this person under oath and you just go step by step up the food chain.

At the end of it, it’s an impeachable offense, which is the key thing.

Caught In Two Lies

So far, IRS officials have been caught telling at least two lies in an effort to contain the growing controversy. The first is that it was all done by a small group of low-level employees in the IRS office in Cincinnati who just weren’t supervised closely enough.

Nice try, but no cigar. We now know that some of the inquiries came from IRS headquarters in Washington, D.C. Oh, and at least some of the requests included demands for the names of donors, contributors and grantors — even though the laws governing such organizations specifically protect the privacy of the people who support them.

Hatch confirmed that the IRS was playing fast and loose with the truth here. “It wasn’t just some lowly staffer in Cincinnati who made a mistake,” he said. “Very senior management at the IRS here in Washington knew what was going on for over a year and didn’t say a word.”

Actually, it isn’t true that the IRS “didn’t say a word.” In fact, the agency issued many words — all of them designed to hide the truth.

The second whopper from the cover-up cohorts is that all of this took place over a few weeks in 2011 and it was promptly stopped when higher-ups learned about it. Wrong again! We now know that the troubling investigations began back in 2010 and continued for more than a year and a half.

At the same time conservative groups were subject to all sorts of scrutiny and delay, many liberal and progressive groups were put on the fast track for approval. If your organization was run by an Obama relative, let’s say, or former White House staffers or operatives from Obama’s 2012 Presidential campaign, the normal approval process could be cut from more than a year to as little as one month.

Yes, indeed, in this bright new era of fairness and transparency, some pigs are sure more equal than others.

And conspiracy buffs have got to love this one: One of the rumors making the rounds in Washington is that some top Administration honchos decided to release the story about the political-audit scandal in an effort to distract public attention from the furor over what happened (and most pointedly, what didn’t happen) in the terrorist assault on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, last September.

If that was the goal, the media manipulators sure made a major miscalculation. Most of us may not be terribly concerned about the activities of an obscure jihadist group in a remote country like Libya — even when it causes the death of four Americans, including our ambassador.

But every taxpayer in this country has a visceral fear of getting on the wrong side of the IRS. We’re aware of past efforts to use the IRS as a political enforcement branch of the White House. And we don’t like it a bit.

You can bet that more heads will roll before all the investigations are over. House Speaker John Boehner says that firings won’t be enough: “My question isn’t about who is going to resign. My question is who’s going to jail over this scandal?”

I’m more eager to see how far the fallout spreads. Remember, no amount of sacrificial lambs was enough to keep Nixon safe in the White House.

“Could the IRS scandal bring down Obama? Let’s hope so.

Until next time, keep some powder dry.

    When is the Tea Party and the GOP going to call for Obama to be PROSECUTED and removed from office? A non-U.S. citizen is not constitutionally-entitled to impeachment proceedings.

    Obama’s social security number failed E-Verify, and anyone with enough intelligence to follow the simple instructions of this video can prove to themselves beyond any doubt that the document Obama claims is his birth certificate was amateurishly created using Adobe layering techniques.

      TNCDEL, HAVE YOU READ JINDAL’S WARNING TO THE MORE CONSERVATIVE FOLKS THAT THEY NEED TO QUIT TAKING DUMB POSITIONS! ADULT INDEPENDENTS WHOSE VOTES YOU NEED TO WIN BACK THE WHITE HOUSE ARE NO LONGER INTERESTED YOUR BIRTHER, BAD SSN ARGUMENTS! THEY HAVE BEEN VOTED ON SEBVERAL TIMES! IF A KNOB JOB WON’T GET A PRESIDENT OUT OF THE OVAL OFFICE I DON’T BELIEVE A “FAIRY HAIR” TRUMP BIRTHER CLAIM IS GOING TO DO THE TRICK EITHER!
      KEEP UP THE RANT! IT IS ONLY CAUSING YOU TO LOSE THE SERIOUS INDEPENDENT VOTE!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!

      • speedle

        nc, are you a “serious independent”? Your previous posts do not indicate as much, unless I am confusing NC with nc.

        • JeffH

          Actually speedle, and I’m in no way defending the biased screaming and ignorant comments by NC, but NC never said he/she was an Independent.

          NC has always been a hardcore liberal who is hopelessly trapped in the ignorance of the 2 party paradigm. That and NC gets a tingle up his/her leg with every thought of donkey’s & Obama, much the same way as Chrisy Matthews.

          • NC

            JEFFH, THANKS FOR SEEING THAT I AM A LIBERAL BUT AS FOR YOUR ALLEGATION THAT OBAMA AND DONKIES CAUSE A TINGLE UP MY LEG IS WAY OFF! I AM A 77 YEARS OLD MALE AND DIABETIC AND THE ONLY THING THAT WOULD CAUSE A “TINGLE UP MY LEG” WOULD BE 220 VOLTS INTO MY GROIN!

            SAD, BUT TRUE!

          • JeffH

            NC, you’re welcome.

            I do believe the thought of “Equus africanus asinus” and the mere mention of Barack Obama’s name gives you the same charge or tingle as “220 volts”

            I see you did not make any attempt to deny the other facts…your “biased screaming and ignorant comments”.

          • NC

            JEFFH, IF YOU INSIST THAT I COMMENT, HERE IT IS! THE “IGNORANCE OF THE TWO PARTY PARADIGM” THAT YOU 2% LIBERTARIANS SCREAM ABOUT COMES FROM THE REALITY THAT THE ODDS ARE 100% THAT THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT 5 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS WILL COME FROM ONE OF THOSE TWO PARTIES!

            I WANT TO BE A PLAYER IN THE DEBATE ABOUT WHICH OF THE TWO PROPOSAL THAT HAVE A CHANCE WILL BECOME LAW! NOT A 2%ER OFF COMPLAINING IN THE WILDERNESS THAT THE “2% POSITION’ CAN’T BE THE LAW! EVEN THE FOUNDING FATHERS WOULD LAUGH AT THAT DREAM!! THAT AIN’T THE WAY THEY DREW IT UP! THEY DREW IT UP IN SUCH A WAY THAT IF “THE PEOPLE” COULD GET BY WITH TWO MAJOR PARTIES THAT WOULD BE THE AMERICAN WAY!

            BEING NUBER ONE IN THE WORLD FOR SO LONG MAKES A GOOD ARGUEMENT FOR THAT CHOICE!

            PERSONALLY, I THINK TWO IS ONE TOO MANY!!
            JUST KIDDING! ARGUING WITH YOURSELF IS NO FUN.

          • JeffH

            NC, all you’re doing is supporting the usurpation of our Constitutional form of government, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights by cow towing to either party of the 2 party system…and that is exactly what you are doing.

            I hope when I reach your age I still have control of all of my faculties. Having no moral compass nor any sense of right and wrong would scare the beegeezes out of me, something you’re obviously incapable of.

          • NC

            JeffH, where do you get your moral compass that you are so sure I don’t have. I don’t hate my neighbors or your neighbors! I don’t hate people because of their color or religion even if some of their fellow members kill in the name of their religion! It seems that is something that zealots of ALL religions have done!
            There are 6 protestant churches and one catholic church in my town of 6,000 all with a moral compass pointing in a slightly different direction and baptismal founts of different depths per the BIBLE! Which one is the true north on your compass!
            I have three married children with children who go to the churches of their choice BUT I never ordered them TO GO OR where to go! THEY ALL STILL SAY “I LOVE YOU, DADDY” AND THAT IS MY MORAL COMPASS! TO NEVER DISAPPOINT OR EMBARRASS THEM IF POSSIBEL! WITH MY “LOUD MOUTH” GENE IT HAS BEEN DIFFICULT AT TIMES.

          • http://www.facebook.com/CapitalistAtBirth Greg Murphy

            Yeah, but I bet their are a lot of people who “HATE” you because of your tendency to scream all the time.

          • Merryl

            Greg Murphy: LOL.

          • JeffH

            I can only judge you by your comments made here at PLD…you’re embarrassing yourself and other liberals, worship Obama, have a “LOUD MOUTH” and have no clue about which you speak.

            You obviously hate Bush, Cheney and Reagan, not because of who they are but because of their political party. You also support the Marxist hybrid communist in the WH and therefore support the usurpation of our Constitutional form of government, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights by your comments and your undying support of the Democratic “Marxist/socialist/fascist/communist” Party.

          • NC

            jEFFH YOU ARE CORRECT THAT I HAVE LITTLE USE POLITICALLY FOR THOSE WHO PUSH THE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM OF COMPLETE GOVERNMENT CONTROL OVER THE BODIES OF WOMEN AS TO THEIR MENTAL AND/OR MENTAL HEALTH AND RESTRICTIONS ON THE RIGHTS OF WORKERS TO ORGANIZE !AIN’T REAL HAPPY WITH THEIR TAX PROGRAMS EITHER!

          • Jeff

            Don’t mind JeffH. He probably had a fight with his favorite gun and is pouting. The only thing he really knows about is adorning his posts with swastikas and pictures of his favorite Nazis. People like him just have a different view of morality. Thank goodness the majority is coming to view his kind of “thinking” as anachronistic.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Maynard-Runkle/100003382332086 Maynard Runkle

            I do not hate Bush, Cheney, or Reagan. After getting shot (By Bushes’ friend’s son) Reagan was smart enough to deliver his lines and forget about his opinions. Bush and Cheney were the biggest threats to our way of life and our Constitution in history.(Do not delude yourself that they are totally “out of power.”) I hate their acts but not them as individuals. They are a product of their warped, mistaken ideology and upbringing, their greed and willingness to follow an immoral compass as shown by their false flags (9/11 and the anthrax scare) their attack on Iraq based on the WMD lie and their obeisance to the filthy fossil fuel fools.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Maynard-Runkle/100003382332086 Maynard Runkle

            If you have a moral compass, my guess is that it is pointing to the right (EAST).

          • Merryl

            NC: The founding fathers were against the two-party system. WE MUST MAKE A CHANGE. We must REFUSE to vote two party!

            So you are an old liberal Democrat which would make you a person who would never vote from anyone but a Democrat even tho in the back of your mind you know that Obama is the most rotten President ever. I’m 74 and seen this lots of times from old Democrats who would never admit that sometimes a bad Democrat does exist.
            PS. Are your eyes bad along with your mind the reason for using all capital letters?

            I know that feeling NC. Mine are numb from the crotch down.

      • vicki

        Observing the truth is hardly a dumb position. The counterfeiting of official documents is fraud and it is itself reason enough for legal action to be taken. Then there is the matter of the SSN. The matter of dual citizenship based on claimed parentage. Quite a bit of problem there even for someone born in Hawaii.

        • http://www.facebook.com/shirley.hall.71868 Shirley Hall

          • Bill Henry

            They are citizens of this country according to law. To become President requires being a natural born citizen.
            Read the constitution and the definitions of “natural born”.
            There are different laws governing the offices of the federal government.

          • Shirley Hall

            President Obam was born in the STATE OF HAWAII of an American mother, although his father was a citizen of Ke ya. What’s your problem, or where is your proof that President Obama was not born in Hawaii? REAL PROOF (NOT SOME VIDEO SOMEBODY HAS MADE UP)

          Scmurf< I won't speak for Shirley because she seems more than capable of doing that! I am a "taker'! I TOOK orders in the Marine Corps. ITOOK an oath to defend our country and our Constitution on four different occasions and spent 35 years doing it and never once did anyone question my dedication to that oath!
          I am also a payer! I pay my taxes and it's like my friend said about his liquor!
          "It might be expensive but I have never paid more than what it means to me!" If I have to pay double or move to another country my check is in the mail!
          Two things I like most about this country are no one dies from falling bombs and no one starves from paying taxes!

          • Bill Henry

            I too took the oath and kept it for 20 year and 4 months until I was adjudged physically unfit to continue. Since then any benefits I was entitled to were not taxable. I now live with my wife, my grand daughter, her husband and my wife’s sister who has been turned out by her other relatives so we took her in out of compassion. My wife works as a school bus driver and earns about 11 grand a year. Last year we claimed my grand daughter, her husband( neither worked or received any benefits), and our two exemptions. What baffles me is why we received a far more than expected in our return. It is apparent that the IRS is set up to return much of our tax dollars to those who pay no taxes. In other words they have turned it into a welfare program in the hopes that it will garner votes for the incumbent party. I tried to do the tax return of my sister-in-law until it gave me a head ache trying to wade through the instructions. It is apparent to me that we need some kind of renovation in the IRS, that makes it equal to everyone, with maybe a higher rate on luxury items which are fairly determined. As for the bombs, I refer you to 9/11/2001, and the recent bombing of the Boston marathon, and I personally will expect them to increase if we play patty cake with people who have a duty to kill us wherever the find us, and if we don’t get a handle on North Korea and Iran, and it seems we are on the brink of another cold war with Russia and this president is meditating on a unilateral reduction in nuclear weapons. The Presidents duty is to protect the people of this country, he is sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution, but ignores it by bypassing Congress and governing by Executive Orders which have no legality as law. In other words he is not doing his job. He has not only wasted trillions of dollars try to boost the economy by backing companies which go bankrupt, by bloating the social welfare programs to garner their votes, and backing environmental groups and alternative power development which is years away from being viable and affordable by the general public. The man has looked us in the face and deliberately lied when he knew he wasn’t going to keep his promise during his campaign. I think more people on the independent side and the liberal side are more disgusted with him than we might think. You can see that by the small number of liberal shills on these sites, and I pray for a change in the 2014 elections of our representatives on both sides of the coin. I believe those in office to be more concerned with their careers than with the will of the people, and if that change doesn’t occur, there will be a violent uprising no matter how small that will cost many American lives, and I hate to see that time come.

          • Merryl

            Bill Henry: Income tax is ILLEGAL. Flat tax should be the way to go. N. Korea and Iran are NOT my “enemy”. I do not know these people PERSONALLY, and I will NOT let someone else determine who my ” enemies” are. We must all do this. WE MUST REFUSE TO PLAY THEIR GAME! Just like the hippies said: What if they gave a war a nobody came? Good idea! Stop the war and stop the fear! They want us to be AFRAID all the time so they can CONTROL us. Well, I’m not playing that game!

          • Bill Henry

            I have NO argument with that. They become your enemy when they attack you, and they have no fear of retaliation, which in my view means that they will do it if they become able. That will determine the question if it happens, unless we just sit by and do nothing. As far as fear, I have none, no one can do anything to me that I fear personally, and if the attempt is to harm my family someone will pay dearly for that. Fear does not control my actions. I am an American, and I walk proud and stand tall, and I will brook no one abrogating my rights. Income tax is legal because we as a people allowed it to be legal, the crime in it is no limit was put on it, so they can keep taking it and wasting it. Look at the infrastructure of the country. We have had two bridge collapses in the last couple of months on federal highways. Where is the money to fix those problems when we waste it on projects that have no future that end in failure? We wasted it on bloated welfare programs. We allow people who are in the country illegally access to those programs. We have no control of our borders because our agents have orders contrary to the immigration laws. We the People allow all this, and it falls back on us to correct these problems. We have forgotten our duties as citizens.
            If you believe in liberty and freedoms being your birth right, then you will look around and see who are your enemies.

            Bombs (Explosive devices) were reported going off at the World Trade Center on 9/11. Do you think it was a coincidence that bomb sniffing dogs were abruptly pulled out the Thursday before?

            Real explosive devices were given to extremist Muslims by the FBI and then set off in the WTC in ’93. No FBI agents were punished, a dead giveaway that higher ups put them up to it. Six people were killed and a half billion in damages. Swept under the rug

            Black Ops were doing “drills” at the Boston Marathon and were photographed with hand held devices and identical Black Back packs with the distinctive white square at the top exactly like the one the media showed was “exploded.” The motto they claim “Despite what your mother told you violence does solve problems.” I admit if your problem is to get the Sheeple to hate Moslems and scared for their security, it DOES DO an effective job.
            DO Not be so sure we are protected from bombs, although I guess they were not “falling.”

          • Bill Henry

            Not a soul living in this country would deny the need for taxes to support the legal tasks assigned to the government. It is when those funds are wasted on things the government has no business doing. The federal government was originally implemented to attend to the infrastructure and commerce of the country, and the protection of its people. It has grown itself into the monstrosity it is today and does nothing to regulate itself.
            It was meant to be accountable to the people for its dealings, but now it has run amok trying to trample on the rights and liberties of the people, and the people have had enough of it, I would say. As for bombs, makeshift as they may be airplanes make fine bombs, and how about aluminum cookware, or truckloads of fertilizer and diesel oil, as for starving I have seen no documentary evidence that anyone in the country is starving.

            I too served my time, 20 years and 4 months to the day. No one ever doubted my dedication either, nor does anyone doubt it still today. I am an American to the bone, and the Constitution is my guiding light, and I will do anything in my power to see it protected and upheld by those who are elected to their office as is my
            duty as I see it. They are also bound by oaths to protect and defend it, but seem to think that it is just a bunch of words that they have to say before they take office. It is time that all of them pay for it with their jobs.

            This is a time when the synonym of terrorist has become Patriot. That should tell you something. Just because a person loves his country and its way of life and is willing to defend it with his life make him a dangerous person to this administration. That should tell you something. A man removes the words for terrorist and anything dealing with them from the official records and operating procedures of the people appointed to defend us from them. That should tell you something. The most powerful department of the government targeting people who are on the opposite side of all issues of the current administration, and placing in its authority the enforcement of the most vicious and oppressive policy ever conceived by any administration. That should tell you something. The speeches of a man who denies that this is a Christian country to the very people who have the duty under their religion to kill Americans no matter who they are or where the find them. That should tell you something.

            A man who sits in a room and watches as drones kill people far removed from this country, and who has it on the word of one of his appointees that he has the legal right to use them on American living in the United States. That should tell you something. These are things that should concern you, but the fact that you choose to be deliberately ignorant when it comes to anything this man does, certainly tells me something.

          • Shirley Hall

            I don’t like the drones either. But, you are wrong: The constitution gives religious freedom for everyone. But most people in America ARE Christians. The Constitution states There shall be no designated religious church.

  • Alex

    ONE: Many Teabaggers use the word ‘TEA’ as an acronym for “Taxed Enough Already”. Certainly seems to reason that the agency responsible for collecting taxes would take a closer look at what sort of papers these groups are filing.

    TWO: People associated with the various Teaganizations have used violence or the threat of violence (see Sharon Angle) as a means of furthering their Cro-Magnon agenda. Again, it would only be wise to scrutinize such anti-social and violence-encouraging thugs.

    THREE: What bits of coherence could be discerned from the cacophonous bleating of the Teabaggers during their many disruptions of public gatherings would lead any moderately-intelligent person to wonder just how tenuous their grip on Reality is—and to what extent might their delusion affect the filling out of tax forms. One more Red Flag, ‘baggers….what would you expect?

    FOUR: Please provide reference to your many examples of outrage when similar fringe groups (ACORN, “N”BP, La Raza, MOVE, SDS, Greenpeace, Weather Underground, SLA, RCP, NAACP, etc etc etc) were put under the microscope. Show me those, please….

    No scandal here, folkkks. Move along….

      Please, provide evidence of violence or threats from Tea Party organizations. Also, please provide evidence of disruptions. Otherwise, crawl back to your mommie’s basement.

      • Flashy

        Gary….I know you want to divert attention…but let me ask…when Newtown happened, when the bombs went off in Boston, when the shootings occurred in New Orleans, when you read about someone being arrested for bomb materials and plotting an act of violence…seriously…does the thought cross your mid it may be a right wing extremist group/individuals … or a liberal left leaning group/individuals?

        I’m wondering..the “march” scheduled for July 4th with the marchers packing iron and having them loaded. Ya really think these are non TPers?

        Ever read anything on here spouting wishes and desires to snuff liberals? (darn near daily)

        Nawwwww….there is no threat or indication of violence. Not evgen with the “locked and loaded’ slogan …

        • Gary

          Sorry, but all these violent acts you speak of are from criminals or mentally unstable people. And equating what happened in Boston to a group of people peacefully exercising their 2nd Amendment right is just nonsense. If you want to live in a socialist utopia, fine. Just don’t turn my country into one, and don’t accuse Tea Party organizations of violent and criminal acts without evidence.
          Btw, when public violent acts occur I like to wait and discover the evidence before making assumptions. The first thing I wonder about is which group is going to use this “crisis” to advance their personal or political agenda.
          Flashy, I think you need to get out in the real world for a while.

          • Flashy

            Gary…I asked if the thought crossed your mind. As far as your reference to utopia (be it socialist or whatever)…it figures an extremist wouldn’t want a utopia…they’d have nothing to fear, hate or avoid responsibility for …

            As for the remainder of your response…I haven’t a clue where you came up with Boston and the 2nd Amendment. But…as is normal..the wacked will use any excuse to avoid responsibility for owning a dangerous weapon.

          • Gary

            So if I get you right, you don’t want ANYONE to own a dangerous weapon? So if someone exercises their 2nd Amendment right then they are wacked? The vast majority of gun owners are very responsible. Those that aren’t typically are irresponsible, or criminals.
            Btw, do you own a car? That’s a pretty dangerous weapon. So perhaps we should all give up our cars because we are not responsible enough to own them.

          • Flashy

            Gary…I have NEVER stated ownership should be denied to these responsible enough to own and possess a dangerous weapon whose only reason for existence is violence.

            What I have stated is that owning a dangerous weapon carries responsibility. Something which the wacked gun nuts claim as well…yet they scream every responsibility is being asked / demanded.

          • Gary

            So what are you trying to say? I guess I am still trying to figure that out. And who are these wacked gun nuts you are talking about?

          • Frank Kahn

            Maybe, Flashy, you need to proofread your post before submitting it. Your beginning statement in this post implies that you think responsible gun owners only reason for existence is to commit violence.

            Now, I am trying to be fair, and give you the benefit of the doubt here. If it was, simply, a grammatical error, or a typo I cans excuse it. If it was not, and puts forth your true beliefs about gun owners, then you are a very sick and mentally disturbed individual. In normal usage of English, you could not even put the two ideas together as supportive of each other. If your only reason for existence is violence, then you are probably not a responsible gun owner.

            In your second statement, you fail to have any credibility in your assertion about responsibility. You have always claimed that “all gun owners are responsible for criminals ability to possess guns”. You constantly claim that it is our fault that we have a group of people that commit mass murder. You blame the guns not the mental conditions of the criminals.

            You are a typical liberal socialist, you believe that we (the COMMUNity) are responsible for everyone’s behavior. You refuse to accept that there is something called self or personal. Self reliance, personal responsibility, personal consequences. If, I become mentally unstable, and go on a killing spree, I will be responsible for the act. At that time I will have ceased being a responsible gun owner. Until that time, I am neither responsible for the violence committed with guns, nor am I an irresponsible gun owner.

          • Merryl

            Flashy: The purpose of owning a gun is to PROTECT OURSELVES FROM A TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT. DON’T YOU THINK OUR GOVERNMENT IS TYRANNICAL? Hitler, Mao and Stalin had the guns removed from the population – and look what happened to them! WE MUST FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION and NOT live through FEAR. “It is better to die on your feet that live on your knees”. “Those who give up Liberty for safety deserve neither”.I wish people would stop being so controlled by FEAR. How about being FEARLESS? How about being COURAGEOUS? How about that! They’re trying to make us all into little “girly men” (as Arnold S. would sat). Let’s STOP IT!

    One day, between trading arms-for-hostages and arms-for-drugs to keep his private war alive, Ronald Reagan, at taxpayer expense, showed the world the real Amerikan Infectualism by laying flowers at the graves of Nazi SS officers.

    “They (the SS) were victims,” stupid and evil Ronnie whimpered, “just as surely as the victims in the concentration camps”.

    We allowed the Alzheimer’s-afflicted Raygun to finish the second of his two terms anyway—terms in which his policies—MORE THAN THOSE OF ANY OTHER PRESIDENT—sent the once-vibrant, though seriously over-consumptive, Amerikan middle-class into the economic tailspin from which we have not and will not recover—Thanks, Ronald, you evil S.O.B.!

    Anyhoo, reread that first paragraph to refresh your memory if you must–it’s all true. Those are three REAL scandals!! Heavyweight stuff! None of that seems to have mattered much to the dunder-headed Amerikan public—they still built a Lie Bury for Reagan, and dropped his stinking carcass in hole right next to it!! It’s so weird when either the Metrolink or the Amtrak comes through those tunnels west of Chatsworth and you’re into Seamy Valley. You can smell ol’ Ronnie from there…..

    • Ringgo1

      You must be desperate to protect the O when you go all the way back to Reagan to try and change the subject. It will not work.

        And he lied about it to boot. Reagan DID NOT “lay flowers at the graves of Nazi SS officers,” nor did he call them “victims.”

        • Flashy

          To be accurate

          May 6, 1985. New york times

          President Reagan presided over a wreath-laying today at the base of a brick cemetery tower looming over the graves of nearly 2,000 German soldiers, including 49 SS troops…..Mr. Reagan stood a few feet from two graves with SS markings. Mr. Reagan initially decided against a visit to a concentration camp site, then reversed the decision amid the furor over his plans to visit the Bitburg cemetery. ….

          • Vigilant

            From the same article:

            “Hours earlier, Mr. Reagan stood before an obelisk at the site of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, where 50,000 victims of the Nazis are buried in mass graves under mounds of heather.

            ”Here they lie,” Mr. Reagan said in a trembling voice. ”Never to hope. Never to pray. Never to love. Never to heal. Never to laugh. Never to cry.”

            Indeed, Flashy, Alex’s story fails under scrutiny, doesn’t it?

          • Flashy

            Yes…though i also recall the controversy the Reagan willingly walked into much like Alex does. Being a few feet from the SS gravesites and speaking how he did was not a good step in US/Israeli relations.

            This was in Reagan’s second term, do you think he would have done the same visit had it been pre ’84 election?

          • Jeff

            I think the real Reagan is better revealed in this portion of the article:

            Outside, a handful of demonstrators echoed the words voiced by Elie Wiesel, the writer and Holocaust survivor, at the White House two weeks ago. The demonstrators, referring to Bitburg, cried: ”You don’t belong there. Come back, please, Mr. President. We don’t want you to go in there.”

            Asked about the demonstrators, Mr. Reagan shrugged and said, ”It’s a free country.”

            When asked a real question, the answer to which might require some actual reflection, he chose to deflect it with a pat answer you could hear in any elementary schoolyard. It’s the same way he reacted to the AIDS crisis early in his Administration (and to the way he campaigned).

          • Vigilant

            “I think the real Reagan…”

            I don’t think you have the vaguest clue as to the real Reagan, as is obvious by your emphasis on the Jewish demonstration and complete disregard for his compassionate comments at the two sites.

          • Bill Henry

            Answer me one question. When did two wrongs start making a right. Apparently there was a furor over his visit to the cemetery and his actions there, which apparently changed his plans about visiting a concentration camp.
            At least he paid attention to the people who elected him. You liberals always have the childish response of “he did it so why can’t we?”

  • Deerinwater

    “Could the alleged IRS Scandal bring down Obama?” ~ No, ~ Because most people understand what this act of desperation by the Tea Party is all about. Just one more effort to erode the confidence of the people in the court of public opinion.

    The Tea Party is suggesting , implying and perhaps even offing sworn testimony that they have been {yet again) a victim and in this case a victim of discrimination by our nation tax collecting authority. A tax collecting authority that could not do it job if it were not given the authority to “discriminate” and apply tax code to 200 million tax returns every year.

    But this gets even better! ~ The Tea Party and the sway they have managed direct the GOP has spent the last five years engaging in efforts to de-fund the Federal Government. They have made it very clear that they detest government and work at all levels to see that government fails.

    Why do they feel this way? ~ Well there are a thousand reasons but most of these thousand of reasons are not new, which begs the question , “Why now?

    Did they just wake up? ~ No , ~ that is not it. They been awake ever since they called themselves ‘The John Birch Society”

    Is it the Economy? ~ No, the economy “officially” tanked one month prior to the 2008 November election. ~ That was when the Rich People started thinking, “Hey! this is not good! While many of us had been saying the same thing for many years.

    Is it Constitutional concerns? Well, some do seem to think so. It appears that US security forces waxed an American born raghead that was keeping bad company in the Middle East without bothering to read him his rights. The Tea Party seems to put forward the notion that American citizen status is some sort of impervious defect shield in a theater of armed conflict. ~ So I’m going to give this a No! because it flies in the face of rational thought. ~ and is just one more attempt to cast citizens of being victims of this administration ~ via the employment of discrimination!

    So we go back to the question of why now do we hate government so?

    The answer is very simple, the Executive office is current lead by a Democrat!

    That this leader happens to be seen as having questionable and unpopular prestige in a nation traditional lead by WASP and this offends the senses of the Morally Superior. A Morally Superior that like to claim a majority that has went about systematically supported leadership that have sold America’s soul to international corporate interest to the likes of individuals that hide earnings off shore and pay 14.5 % federal Income tax on what they do bother to claim. ~~ and then ~ this same Superior Moral Majority has the audacity to run this son-of-a- buck . tax dodger for President! ~

    BUT WAIT! That is only half the story ~ they are MAD and can’t understand why they lost an ELECTION. ~ ~ SO!! Screw Government! ~ They are taking their Toys and going home!

    And now we find ~ they are making a systematic effort to screw the government out taxes due ~because they don’t approve of Federal taxes.

    And now they are mad because they are getting caught ! The tax cheats are now claiming ~ that the IRS actually reviewed their Tax Return ! and what is worse, ~ only did so because the IRS knew they were Tax Cheats.

    I personally believe that the IRS reviewed them only because they sent them in. If you don’t file ~ there will be no review.

          I don’t carry and fed a hungry bias that requires “this” constant feeding.

          The Tea Party has demonstrated over and over again and again their contempt for government and in particularly the Fed. ~ The World banking system and anything that might be construed to take money our of our pockets in any form or fashion. ~

          After 5 years, this contempt is duly noted, be advised you have been listen to and been heard loud and clear. Please expect a measured response to your concerns as the rule of law reflected in the tax codes will be applied and expect enforcement to follow.

          As I understand it ~ a certain amount of liberty has been taken with political funding dollars that have been claimed as tax exempt on the part of active Tea Party operatives that fails to comply with the present tax codes as they have been written.

          This “act of claiming exemption” has raised a red flag on any “return’ that uses this exemption. In much the same way, ~ any thief loss of any sizable amount that fails to be accompanied by a police report and other documentation to validate this loss.

          I don’t personally do my own taxes ~but have an ex IRS agent/ CPA do them for me. I only consolidate the numbers and present them too him for review. ~ He offers me council as I have many losses that he discourages me to claim ~ as these item line deduction will always raise a RED FLAG on any return processed by the IRS.

          • Bill Henry

            Whatever the law is it should be applied fairly without consideration of party affiliation. I think the timing and the statement of doing that is in question regardless of whether the exemption was allowed or not. The IRS should not be a tool for either party’s political ends. Since the IRS is a federal department it is under the purview of the Executive Officer, i.e., El Presidente, therefor any wrong doing on its part lands on his desk, and token firing of a temporary head of department who was retiring anyway doesn’t go deep enough into the correction of the problem, nor does it make it go away, nor does it distract from the other problems We the People have with this administration. As far as support for this President, I think he has lost a lot since his election and the discovery of the faithful of his lying to them time after time like no tax raise on the middle class, the Benghazi cover up, fast and furious, immigration policies which are in the bailiwick
            of the Congress, ordering border patrol agents not to arrest illegals crossing the border and sending them back to where they came from, and the list goes on and on. He thinks that because he is not up for reelection that he can do as he pleases while he is in office to the detriment of the people, so it is the duty of the Congress to block his attempts at bypassing the Constitution and the Congress, and since they don’t seem to want to do that even against the warnings of their constituents they jeopardize their jobs. There is a reckoning coming and I will work diligently to see it happen whatever form it takes.

        i.e organized for the purpose of promoting the general welfare of the public, a community, or a class and operated exclusively for the promotion of social welfare engaged in promoting the common good and general welfare of
        the people of the community

            Deflect, as in referring to two decade’s old speculations to draw attention from current problems and scandals (Alex).

            Hiding the truth, as in making the ridiculous claim that it’s within the purview of the IRS to intimidate organizations who exercise their right to express an opinon under the First Amendment (Alex).

        Don 2… The Tea Party has many faults and evils. You just have to research the people at the top and their history to know their true agendas. We are not hearing the real Tea so find out who is really running it and go back far enough. JBS is a good place to start… but go even further back…

        • Don 2

          And your documentation that the Tea Party has many faults and evils would be…..what?

          • macgyver1948

            Don 2… I’m not doing the work for you but I have loads. You will believe it more if you do your own searching. Look at the back ground of the Koch Family (the brothers and their father Fred), research the John Birch Society, the fore bearer of Tea, a major anti civil rights group. The JBS is and was so totally for a Plutocracy and anything for the benefit and protection of the corporations. With Tea, the power and agendas are all the same. If you know about US history our Founders warned us against the corporations and corporate monies in politics.

            I’m not saying you are a Tea member but if you join a group, or support them, you should know the people at the top, the financiers and the founders, that would be the real group. Know what they are really about and not just their press to get you to join and support them.

      The Jabberwocky says “No, ~ Because most people understand what this act of desperation by the Tea Party is all about.”

    • Bill Henry

      Then pray tell me why the IRS confessed that conservative groups and individuals were targeted and apologized for it, and the President even covered, or thinks he did, their asses by firing a man who was already due to retire in a month. If you don’t file then the will have you by the gonads for sure. This was a political move through and through, who ordered it is the question. The price of liberty is constant vigilance, dedication to oath, truth, and allegiance to the Constitution and our way of life. It has been paid with the blood of millions, from those who won our freedom from a despotic government, to those who have protected that freedom for the 238 years that this Republic has existed. We now pay lip service to those who do the job and call themheroes because it makes us feel good. I can tell you for certain that those who the job do it from a sense of duty. They face death on a daily basis whether in combat or daily routine and their compensation for the job is minimal. What this administration has done is desecrate its oath and spit on the graves of those millions who followed their oaths and paid for it with their lives. What the IRS has done is just a distractor from other more serious issues. That is plain. It is minimal to what should be dealt with and prosecuted. Who really gives a hoot about what the IRS does and confesses to. The issue is deeper than that, it goes to a man who has violated his oath of office and disdains the Constitution that he is sworn to uphold and defend, and although he swore on two Holy Bibles used by heroes of the civil rights movement, he continues to break it and try to circumvent the normal process of legislation. I consider his Executive Orders and he considers the Constitution, not as law, but flawed, and I for one will not obey any Executive Order that pretends to be law.

  • steve buckner

    I remember back about 15 or so years ago that it was brought to America’s attention that most of the people that worked for the IRS hadn’t payed their taxes, including some of the higher ups. I wonder if they were ever made to pay ? I doubt it !! So, if they can not do what everyone else has to do each year what makes anyone think that they would not use theirs and Obamma’s resources to shut down people that disagreed with the white house and it’s agenda. They did lie and fake these people out so, to make sure that Obamma got back into the white house, so that the IRS could go on screwing the American public and add to all the LIES coming out of Washington and Obamma’s mouth !!

        Shirley, I object to the policies of the half-white person in the White House.

        • Merryl

          Don 2: LOL.

  • Flashy

    LOL … one of the attractions of the lottery is by buying a ticket for $1.00, the purchaser has entertainment of daydreams and feelings of euphoria in fantasizing being the winner. Cheap entertainment.

    The TPers and American Taliban have relied on a trilogy for their existence. Fear, anger and ignorance. Make up something for the troops to fear, get them angry over it, and rely on their ignorance throughout especially in assuring them the TP/American Taliban has the solution (Even though they never come up with any).

    Let’s look at the three so-called ‘scandals’ which the crazed extremists have wet dreams in their fantasies of coming back to power and reversing the movement of dismissal into the back of the room.

    1. IRS scandal. When asked why he robbed banks, Willie Sutton said ‘because that’s where the money is”. Well, a sign on the building says ‘bank’, there are guards, people are going in and depositing money…ol’ Willie would know where the bank was to ply his trade.

    Same with the 501c’s and scrutinizing their applications for non-profit status. NOTE, not tax records…rather the applications for tax exempt status and being able to hide the identity of donors. The sign, the building, the depositors…all were there. it didn’t take a brain surgeon to see a commonality. And i’d love to see anyone with a straight face say Karl Rove’s “non-profit” was for ‘education and dispensing knowledge for the social welfare”.

    No where is this leading to the WH. The IRS Commissioner in charge at the time was a Bush II appointee. He left, replaced by an acting Commissioner who took his seat after the events in question. It’s turning out, there was a division within the IRS which created a test to run to tag applications for further challenge. They were told to knock it off..they didn’t. It went on for 18 months before they were set straight.

    that’s it folks. There’s the ‘scandal”. They went where the money was. Straight from Willie Sutton’s playbook. Nowhere is there a link to the WH having knowledge or a hand in this.

    Now…the next step that’s coming? I’d venture these groups that made the applications and are now screaming they were “victims” aren’t going to like what they have brought upon themselves. because they are going to be looked at, researched, and outed by the media to check on whether the additional application scrutiny was deserved.

    THAT will be the REAL IRS scandal. The abuse of the non-profit status by political groups. And I’d place bets most of the abuses will emanate from the right wing groups with the “tags’ used by the IRS.

    2. AP investigation. Recall, when the story broke, the GOP leadership was howling for finding out who leaked. We had an agent inside the Al Qeada leadership. Never had one there…but we now did. It paid off. We stopped a plot to set off bombs, and … in a nice coup…we had the newest bomb al Qaeda was going to be using. We now know the design, the materials, the ways it is constructed etc. All valuable information.

    The story was published and we had to rescue our inside guy. Nice. So much for having a “live’ lead to the al Qaeda leadership. So the intel agencies were kinda sorta tiffed. Congress was tiffed. The administration was tiffed. A valuable asset was outed.

    There is no indication any law was broken. none. The AP w targeted and the intercepts were broad. The offices covered were those which there may have been the leak (including the Congressional staff office where they cover the intelligence Committees briefed on the affair…does Michelle Bachman come to mind?). And the authority for this? Why….the unPatriotic Act passed in the GOP days of Bush II ! WOW ! (note; Pres. Obama did not sign a re authorization of the unPatriotic Act…he signed the reauthorization for one part…roving wiretaps . )

    here’s the budding scandal on the AP story. Not one TP member of Congress..not one…has yet to introduce a bill wiping out the patriot Act. NOT ONE. Oh ye “patriots’ for freedom. Are you all talk but no action? Unless it involves going against social welfare of this nation are you going to allow your TP supported representatives to get away with this? Oh…it is easy to vote against Obamacare for the 37th time..knowing it has no chance of going anywhere. it’s easy to go against the little guy in demanding cuts to the job creating programs of the social safety net. But now when the tar hits the road…y’all are outed as being full of hot air with no solutions. THAT is the scandal of the AP story.

    And now Benghazi. Turns out it was a turf war between the CIA and State. That Benghazi was not a consulate, but a CIA post. And that all the emails were previously provided to Congress which Congress is now demanding release 9figure that one out). Plus..it now turns out, the emails provided to GOP members of Congress were altered before being released to the press!

    And…all this attention on emails and the taking points is a nice controversy and furball…and diverts attention to what we should be asking…(or maybe we shouldn’t ask about)

    What was an ambassador doing meeting in the middle of the night, at a known remote outpost with little security, with two CIA ops and a Special Forces intel guy and which al Qaeda thought so important they wasted a lot of assets to stop? And which had the Libyan President in English and Arabic go on TV to apologize (ever hear of that happening before?) and the Egyptian president to call out troops to protect US properties and assets ?

    There ya go…

    It may look good today, but when the hangover comes tomorrow, my guess is the extremists are going to be the ones squirming…

    • Ringgo1

      The extremists are the current administratin and YOU, oh flushed one. It is easy to see that your only purpose is to cover for the CRIMES of the O and his minions. Do you think you really make a difference with all of your blather?

      • Kinetic1

        And the only purpose of these “hearings” is to run down the clock on the Obama Presidency the same way the Republicans used Monica Lewinski to run down the clock on Clinton. Mitch McConnel said it best; “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”
        He failed, but that won’t stop the Republicans in Congress from doing everything they can to prevent President Obama having any success. Cost is of no concern to the Republican leadership. Even if a policy could turn the economy on it’s heals and bring us back to prosperity, they wouldn’t do it as long as Obama is in the White House.

        • http://www.facebook.com/CapitalistAtBirth Greg Murphy

          What do you define as success?

        • Kinetic1

          Here are just some of the bills blocked by Republicans over the last several years:

          Campaign finance reform and transparancy,
          Ending sexual descrimination in employment and pay,
          A tax on Companies that ship jobs overseas,
          The Anti-Rape Amendment to the Defense Appropriations Bill
          Benefits for Homeless Veterans
          Increased oil spill liability

          And the list goes on and on. Some times it’s a matter of ideology, but there have been so many cases where Republicans have promoted an idea, only to vote against it when President Obama’s name is on it.

        • Merryl

          Kinetic1: Will you please stop this Republican/Democrat DIVIDE AND CONQUER thing? We must ALL UNITE AGAINST THE 1% to get anything done! If we cannot unite they will just keep on playing their dirty tricks. THAT’S WHY nothing gets done. We must all become CONSTITUTIONALISTS. And Obama was re-elected by vote rigging.

          • Nadzieja Batki

            Merryl, nice try but if Republicans unite with the Dems/Progs/Leftists then in whose direction will the country go. I can guarantee that the Dems/Progs/Leftists will take over without anyone making a squeek.

            Yo Nads,
            What color is the Sky in your world?

    • Flashy

      Momo…you well know there are areas with this administration I disagree with. Overall , given with what he has to deal with, I’d venture this presidency will rank in the top third when judged by history.

      I think Nixon will be nudged higher than he is currently ranked by today’s historians, and Reagan will fall with the passing of every decade IF the Middle Class can win the war he began and waged against it (and carried on by the conservative wealthy elites to this day). Clinton will be probably above Obama, but not by much. bubba had that knack of schmoozing his adversaies.

      Obama is too logical and gave his opponents the benefit of having common sense and the nation’s interests above political. He is now showing a fighting spirit..which I like.

      As for your comments…in the three “scandals” i discussed…what parts did you find fault with?

      • momo

        A fighting spirit? Obama get’s asked when he found about a scandal and replies “When I read it in the paper.” At best he’s incompetent, at worst he’s a petty tyrant. And to be honest your constant defending of this administration, even when you know they’re in the wrong, smacks of a cult of personality. ‘Two plus two is five if the fuhrer says so.” Hermann Goring. That sounds like you flasho.
        As for what I found wrong with your description of these three scandals, I outlined it yesterday in my response to your belittling of them.

          • Jana

            But Bob, we are in so much worse debt because of the bail outs, and the bad investments that Obama made with the green energy programs.
            *Evergreen Solar
            *SpectraWatt
            *Solyndra (received $535 million)
            *Beacon Power (received $43 million)
            *AES’ subsidiary Eastern Energy
            *Nevada Geothermal (received $98.5 million)
            *SunPower (received $1.5 billion)
            *First Solar (received $1.46 billion)
            *Babcock & Brown (an Australian company which received$178 million)
            *Ener1 (subsidiary EnerDel received $118.5 million)
            *Amonix (received 5.9 million)
            *The National Renewable Energy Lab
            *Fisker Automotive
            *Abound Solar (received $400 million)
            *Chevy Volt (taxpayers basically own GM)
            *Solar Trust of America
            *A123 Systems (received $279 million)
            *Willard & Kelsey Solar Group (received $6 million)
            *Johnson Controls (received $299 million)
            *Schneider Electric (received $86 million)

            That’s 19 that I know of! We also know that loans went to foreign clean energy companies (Fisker sent money to their overseas plant to develop an electric car),and that 80% of these loans went to President Obama’s campaign donors.
            NRG Energy, loan guarantee of $1.237 billion, reported a loss of $109 million compared with a year-earlier loss of $15 million. (Source- MarketWatch)
            Total 20, with 80 percent of the loans going to Obama campaign donors.

            Not only does Obama have a gambling problem, but he makes bad bets and even worse, he is using taxpayer money to make those bad bets.

            Talk about something that the IRS needs to investigate, but they won’t!

          • Jana

            And, bless his heart Obama was so stressed out he had to go out and PLAY GOLF today. He just couldn’t be bothered with work.3 scandals and a country full of upset people but he goes out to play his games. Wow!

          • Bob666

            But Jana,
            yes, these are some failed programs and there was a pile of money that went into a black hole. Are you saying that McCain and Romney would not have their list of success as well?

          • Jana

            I don’t know, I am not talking about McCain or Romney. I am talking about someone who doesn’t seem to learn from his mistakes.

          • Bob666

            Jana,

            I keep coming back to this list and I have to ask you some questions:

            First, we know that Solyndra went belly up and I get that.

            But many of these companies are still in business and I Did some random checks:
            First Solar:
            Net sales of $755 million
            Non-GAAP EPS of $0.69 per fully diluted share
            GAAP EPS of $0.66 per fully diluted share
            Cash and Marketable Securities of $1 billion
            .
            SunPower (received $1.5 billion)
            net income per diluted share of $0.60 to $0.80 (2013 SEC)
            .
            Nevada Geothermal
            this one is a bit of a financial enigma, but the assets seem to be I place.
            .
            And what is the deal with the Chevy Volt? The two things I would say on this is; The GM bail-out was successful. Had GM gone bust, some China based company would probably be one of the top two Auto makers in the world. As far as the volt goes, The Asia’s own the electric car market and there is great potential there.

            My wife drove a Prius for six years – it was a great car and I miss filling it up every three weeks. Again, we were at the age of the financial abyss -How do you think the financial crises of 2007-2009 should have been handled?

          • Jana

            Well, since you asked, but you won’t agree LOL. Here goes.

            Sure, the GM bail out was successful, for the Unions, we had to pay for their retirement programs. The Government did some fancy foot work and showed on paper that they paid them back but in actuality they did not pay them back. That is a big sore spot with me. I will never ever buy a Government Motors Product again.

            You stated.” As far as the volt goes, The Asia’s own the electric car market and there is great potential there.” Of course, they don’t have the Unions to contend with. Neither does China who is buying up most of the green energy companies that our tax dollars invested so heavily in. So sure it looks like they might make it, but we aren’t going to see anything out of it.

            You asked how I would have handled it? It isn’t a popular opinion, but like you I give my unpopular opinions anyway, and my unpopular opinion is: I would have let them fold. If they are doing that badly in their business practices that they cannot make it, then they should fold. My parents had their own business. For awhile their business started going down hill. I stopped what I was doing and as a daughter stepped in and went to work for them and helped them build their business back up. The government didn’t do it. No bail outs, no outside help, no handouts. If it would have failed, it would have failed and my husband and I would have had to help them any way we could and would been happy to do so, but not with government help. It would be family help.

            Because of that experience I know how to run a business, and do the bookkeeping. I earned a lot of valuable skills for my efforts that I am very thankful for, and have found them useful in so many ways in even running volunteer endeavors as well as a home. I have even helped a friend set up her own business because of these skills.

            This is the American way. At least it is supposed to be the American way. The bail out way is the Socialist way as far as I am concerned. Take from the many to help the few.

          • Bob666

            Jana,
            “The Government did some fancy foot work and showed on paper that they paid them back but in actuality they did not pay them back”

            Not sure what you meant in that statement. As far as “bail-out” go, GM is exceeding there schedule to pay off US Government debt

            “(Reuters) – The U.S. Treasury said on Wednesday it will sell 200 million shares in General Motors Co and divest the rest of its holdings over the next 12 to 15 months, ending public ownership of the company rescued by taxpayers in 2009.

            GM’s $50 billion bailout comprised of nearly $7 billion in direct loans and $43 billion in bailout cash and bankruptcy aid.”

            November 2010: GM returns to public equity markets with a massive initial public offering. Treasury sells $13 billion of GM stock, leaving it with about 500 million shares.

            December 2010: GM repurchases Treasury’s $2.1 billion in preferred stock, leaving Treasury with only common stock.

            “December 2012: Treasury announces its planned exit from GM, selling 200 million shares to the company at $27.50 per share, for about $5.5 billion, and undertaking to sell the remaining 300 million shares over the next 12-15 months, starting January”.

            While I do agree with you that the UAW was given preference as a creditor in the chapter 11 proceedings and that should not have occurred, the tax payer funded bail-out is on line to be paid back in full.

            I to ran a business and there were times that I had to pull a business partner out of the financial ditch in order to proceed with a project that turned out to be profitable.

            While business bail outs are not the function of government, in the case of the auto industry, it worked and GM remains an American owned company.

            As far as the volt goes, I don’t agree with your view on the unions at all. American auto makers have moved to robotics along with foreign auto makers to cut labor cost. The UAW also made a boat load of concessions in their agreement with the big three as well.

            The Asians own that market (electric) because they made the investment and did the research and much of that was backed by the governments were they are based.
            As far as green energy goes, China is the largest share holder of that market and poses the question for you; When foreign governments back the R/D of Foreign companies that compete against US owned companies-what role should our government take?

            We have lost one of the big three auto makers here to foreign ownership they will not operate Chrysler in the best interest of the US. GM owned patens and technology that China could have acquired for pennies on the dollar if GM had gone belly up. China would not have operated those former GM assets in our best interest as well.

            As far as GM products go, if they made the vehicle that would meet my requirements and expectation, I would purchase it with out a second thought, as Business Decisions tend to be impartial.

          • Jana

            Do the math Bob. The stock target is $38 in one year. $38. X 200 million??? They just said they paid most of it back, but they didn’t. I was listening as it was being explained recently and it just made me sick. They think we are all stupid out here and will buy into whatever they sell.

          • Bob666

            bonds and preferred stock?

          • Don 2

            I agree with you Jana. I wouldn’t buy an Obama Motors car either. Their bondholders, who risked their money, were raped for 10 cents on the dollars by Obama so that he could give the company to the union. I’ll stick with Ford. Chrysler was bailed out and they went foreign anyway. As far as G.M. selling shares for only $27.50, that’s a joke on the taxpayers who will never get their money back. It was all calculated to keep the unions supporting Obama.

          • Jana

            Yes, it is a joke, and its on us.

          • Don 2

            Let’s not forget how Obama closed G.M. dealerships owned by Republicans and Conservatives, and intentionally stuck it to management people at G.M. by reducing their pensions, while totally protecting union pensions.

          • Jana

            Yes, I forgot about that part.

            Bob, you don’t think 9-11 had anything to do with it? At the time, the company that I was working for spent $5 million on security upgrades, just at this one facility. NYC cops were working 16-hour days, and all the overtime they wanted, propping up their retirements beyond belief. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.

          • Bob666

            Yo Don,

            Yes, 9-11 had a great deal to do with his (“W”) woes of the Whitehouse. But, where your argument get negated is; the prosecution of two wars, the funding of said wars off of the balance sheet and the failed energy policies written by the oil industry for the oil industry. Then we have the medicare drug prescription program that allows us to pay 3-5 times the value of a drug than our neighbors in Canada since the drug industry wrote the bill to benefit it self. I could continue to list the multitude of failures of “W”, but life is too short.

            You see Obama and it is quite clear that you dislike him. I see Obama as a guy who has made some bad decisions just like presidents #33 to #43 before him in my life time. But I look at them equally and a bit more objectively than most on this web site who clearly hate Obama.
            “W” walked into an economy that was basically sound with some contraction, but not in recession. Obama got a train-wreck that was one step away from a depression. Had McCain been elected, we would be no better off today than with Obama.
            Those of us who do not belong to the DNC or the GOP who are clearly more objective, realize this.

          • Don 2

            I agree with some of your points. However, remember that even after 5 years, Obama does not have an energy policy, other than to throw money at those who donated to his election so that they can blow it on green energy scams. There’s an argument regarding the cost of R&D with the drug industry, and that the majority of new advances in drugs occurs in the U.S. because most of the expensive R&D is conducted here. Also, didn’t Obama say that the Afghan war was the right war(paraphrasing)? I couldn’t agree more that John McCain is a waste. Regardless, Capitalism is what made this country great, and big government dependency will take it down.
            However, my dislike for Obama stems from the fact that I do believe that he is a red diaper baby, and a radical revolutionary Marxist and Muslim, intent on purposely destroying America, and our Constitutional protections. I think that this is as clear as day to anyone with their eyes open, and that, as far as I am concerned, gives me every reason to despise this man, not for his race, but for his policies and who he is.

          • Bob666

            Yo Don,
            The US is one of the largest RX markets in the world, but we do not consume the majority of drugs so the it really is hard for me to buy the R/D argument (yes R/D is real). Big Pharm is one of the most powerful lobby groups on DC and that is why we pay the highest price.

            I love Capitalism and it has provided a good life for me, but capitalism left unto itself will always do itself in and history proves this.
            On Obama being a Marxist & Muslim, we are just going to have to disagree on that.

    • FreedomFighter

      You have to ask yourself…is..
      A powerful cabal of men, with vast money, assets, global influence, and the will to dominate mankind behind the action or lack of actions of the so called “free press”, behind Obama pulling the strings of the O-puppet, limiting or outright controlling congress and the senate working toward a goal of world domination and control? My answer is this: Some megalomaniacs somewhere throughout history have always wanted to rule the world and our time in history is no different

      …This act of the Obama administration stands as a glaring threat of war against our nation’s citizens! This act of the Obama administration can only be understood as a tyrannical threat against the Constitution of the United States of America! If left unresolved, the peace loving citizens who have sworn to defend the United States Constitution “against all enemies, both foreign and domestic” are left no option except to prepare to defend themselves, and the U.S. Constitution, against this Administration’s “coup” against the People and the foundations of liberty fought for and defended for the past 238 years. We have no choice if we honor our oaths.

      The only proper response to this threat against the American people is for the representatives of the People, the members of the U.S. House and Senate, to demand in clear terms that the Administration cannot ignore, that the Department of Homeland Security immediately surrender their newly appropriated weapons of war to the Department of Defense (DoD). Further, since the DHS has assumed a position in the Administration to enforce the tyrannical acts of this president against the People of the United States against the limits of the United States Constitution, it remains for the United States Congress to exercise its limiting power in the balancing of powers established by our founding fathers, to disestablish and dissolve the DHS as soon as possible. One needs only to look to the rise of Adolf Hitler, and his associated DHS organizations, the SA and the SS, of 1932-1934, to see the outcome of allowing an agency of government this kind of control over the free citizens of a nation. The people of Germany could not have imagined, until it was too late, the danger of allowing a tyrant this kind of power. We must not be so naïve as to think it will not happen to us as well if we remain passive toward this power grab by the Marxist Obama administration!

      Finally, for more than two centuries the nation has lived in peace at home because of the protections of our legitimate military and the many appropriate state and federal law enforcement agencies, supported by Constitutional courts. We stand today at a cross-road. Will we allow this present Administration to overthrow our United States Constitution and its legal processes to amend injustices, or, will we honor our obligations to defend the Constitution against a “domestic” enemy? Our Constitution lays out the proper methods of resolving our differences; and it does not include its overthrow by a rogue agency of a Marxist leadership at home. You, sir, are our constitutionally elected agent to defend our Constitution at home. We are counting upon you. We remain aware, however, of this present threat and will not expose ourselves as an easy prey to the authors of the destruction of our nation….

The prosecutor’s young son was also killed. Oh well, just another “Collateral Murder.”

            I thought that was Bush Jr. It was his second term, and his death occured the night before he was going to testify or be deposed about the election was being electronically sent to Tennessee, I think, so they could be electronically switched. Talk about dirty deeds!

        If you cannot see that Obama is a puppet of the same people who brought us the assassination of liberals and attempted assassination of George Wallace, Larry Flynt. Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan you need to look more closely. Reagan was almost killed by the son of one of Papa Bushes’ major contributors and fellow Texas oil tycoon. Papa claimed he did not even know the family. Right! This lie alone shows his complicity. Bush ruled the Reagan roost after that bringing us the illegal Iran-Contra and Savings and Loans ripoffs. Then as President, he gave us the Incubator Babies Lie. Who visited Obama right after he signed NDAA 2012 after promising to veto it? Jebediah and Papa Bush. Obama knows, like JFK, Jr., he will not have a long life if he does not go along.

    • Jeff

      The difference was Nixon was on tape directing the cover-up and discussing hush money for the Liddy Gang. A little more was involved than hatred by the press which didn’t seem to hurt him in 1972.

      This IRS thing is a tempest in a teapot. Right wingers who have always hated the IRS are now claiming Obama directed the holdover Republican director to “target” conservative groups? If that were the case, why would the IRS admit having done anything wrong? I don’t believe any “tea party” groups were denied their tax exemptions although most were not legally entitled to them. Groups engaging in politics, whether on the left or the right, are not entitled to tax exempt status under 501(c)(4). The statutory language says their activities must be “exclusively” the promotion of social welfare. The IRS interprets “exclusively” in the Tax Code to mean “primarily.” Try that argument with your wife when she finds lipstick on your collar!

      • http://www.facebook.com/CapitalistAtBirth Greg Murphy

        • Jeff

          It isn’t a question of legality but if their activities are political, primarily or otherwise, they are not entitled to tax exempt status as are, say, the Boy Scouts or an organization devoted to raising money to buy wigs for cancer victims.

      • macgyver1948

        Hi Jeff… Our reporter “Friend” Chip Wood says “After
        intimidating honest taxpayers for decades… “. So how does this affect Obama and not the previous president?

        “Obama’s Undoing Begins” and “Could The IRS Scandal Bring Down Obama?” says Chip so how does this affect Obama alone, as President, if it has been going on for decades?

        Help me remember. How many decades has Obama been President? Nothing like blaming Obama for things going on since before his time, not that is a new concept from the Right. Hate will do that and the blind will just go along and believe whatever they are told. ‘If only the Media told the truth’, that is the Root of many of the problems (along with nasty paid for
        politicians). LOL

        And the Right has always hated taxes to the point where they will fight any increase even when needed, even temporary specialized/favored lowered ones. Anything to shrink the tax base and the budget to where it will not support the country
        but will make Corporations thrilled. This IRS scandal fits nicely
        into their tea pot. But sadly, because it is happening and for
        “decades”, the IRS and any in government who are part of this
        scandal must go down for it. Obama seems to not have much to do with it but when there is hate they will do their best to create the connection.

        • Jana

          People are often easily intimidated when they hear horror stories of how the IRS can come in and confiscate a persons home and belongings because of some error that was made. Most of the time it is because they don’t know the rules. How can we be expected to know all of the rules when the IRS Agents don’t even know all of the rules themselves, and every year the rules change.

          This is what was meant by***”
          After intimidating honest taxpayers for decades,”*****

          In the past few year we have seen Obama triple the IRS Agents, which gives us more reason to think us against them so now we see the IRS has run a muck with power they should not have, and YES, it is very intimidating.

      • ChuckB

        Jeffy, I see You are still spieling out the liberal garbage. The difference was Nixon had more class than the current occupant of the WH.

        Nixon was hated by the bolsheviks, both in the congress and the media, at that time the press kept their liberal tilt confined to a smaller degree,

        Carl Bernstein had a vendetta against Nixon. remember Ethyl and Julius Rosenberg? I doubt you do. If you watched the Watergate hearings (you were probably out demonstrating against the war) the Rosenbergs were related to Bernstein both politically and by blood, all bolsheviks.

        This IRS episode is nothing more than a diversion to get the peoples minds off the Benghazi tragedy, this will most likely get Barry impeached.

He and Kissinger both knew the war was unwinnable (as did Johnson and McNamara before them), but to “save face” they kept the war going, bringing in Laos and Cambodia, allowing the Khmer Rouge to take power in Cambodia and killing thousands more Americans and millions of Asians to boot. If that be honor, I’ll have none of it.

            I agree. You are obviously a very intelligent person who simply is misguided. Obama did lie about vetoing NDAA 2012, about closing Guantanamo and claims the right to off American citizens without due process. This is horribly wrong but does not compare, IMO, to the criminal Bush Family, in which Nixon was an important part. Did you know E. Howard Hunt was given hush money because he knew too much about the JFK assassination and admitted as much on his death bed? Did you know Hunt’s wife died in a mysterious Plane Crash at Midway Airport and the “men in suits” showed up to pick up her paperwork even before the emergency services arrived? Probably not. Such events are kept out of our so-called Liberal Media (which just happens to be owned by conservatives.)

            If you knew anything about it you would know that with the victory of the Tet offensive, we had them whipped, and if it had continued with a will, it would have ended in a victory, but politics being what they were at the time, the war was politically wound down until the final withdrawal. The graves of those who died there were spat upon as were the returning veterans. The war was lost by politicians not by the men fighting it, making it a war where no battles were lost, but the war was, that can be placed on those who protested it. Now accolades and platitudes are spewed like champagne from a shaken up bottle, for all military men, as if that is what they are fighting for, when the gist of it is we were fighting for our country and way of life, in other words defending the Constitution as they were sworn to do. An oath by the way, that many of us believe has no expiration, thus our anger when we see it desecrate by one who also took it, and who give a rat’s ass about what Emerson wrote?

            Nixon was selected by Prescott Bush, banker for the Nazis who during WWII was forced to stop. Nixon had an assistant which records show was exempted from an investigation by Congress in the ’50’s. His name: Jack Rubinstein. Later he would attain fame as Jack Ruby, the man who silenced the Patsy Oswald. Nixon, according to LBJ’s mistress Madeleine Brown, attended a meeting with Texas Oil Tycoons the night before JFK was killed. LBJ told her that after that weekend he would not have to put up with them @$$%@%%^ Kennedys any more. Bush was photoed on the steps of the Texas School Book Depository the day Kennedy was massacred but like Nixon claimed he could not remember where he was when JFK was killed. Bush was reported to be in a meeting with Hoover the next day in Washington yet claimed it was some other George Bush. Right! He denied he was in the CIA yet he was made Head of the CIA. He was friends with the man whose son tried to off Reagan yet claimed he did not know the family. Right!

Benghazi is Obama’s waterloo, that is if the wimpy republicans don’t tuck their tail and run. He and Hillary lied, they covered up the truth and it’s quite obvious Barry has no control of the countries operations, where was he the night the ambassador was killed? That’s why nothing sticks to him, he’s just a front man for the real crooks. Take away his teleprompter and he is lost in the real world.

I especially liked Fat Tony Ulasewicz testifying about holding a paper bag with “50,000 cookies” in hush money while he waited for a woman to quit gabbing on the phone. You see, he was to make the drop in the phone booth. Real Sam Spade kind of stuff. Like a crime story from the 30s.

Remember the Tea Party (House) will impeachment, and the Senate who will vote on impeachment has a plurality, maybe even MORE Democrat senators than now, but there are more Tea Partirs now (who will be voted out when we voters wake up and and realize their OBSTRUCTION which causes harm to this nation.

    “Progressive Leaders” all by the own admission, KNOW NOTHING! So therefore, why would one vote to install any “Progressive Leader”? Defies logic.

    • ConservativeRracists

      As ususal the ignorant racists run to falsey call Obama a liar!

      Thus far, there is no evidence that Obama was in on this, so why not concentrate on the culprits and not use it as a tool against Obama. However, I do understand that many believe that Obama is singlehandedly responsible for EVERYTHING that happens in this country. It’s amazing he has time to sleep, given all the information he has to process and commands e has to dictate every day. And please do not identify me as an Obamaphile. I neither love nor hate the man. I just see him as a man, not an all-encompassing evil force.

      The difference was Nixon was on tape directing the cover-up and discussing hush money for the Liddy Gang. A little more was involved than hatred by the press which didn’t seem to hurt him in 1972.

      This IRS thing is a tempest in a teapot. Right wingers who have always hated the IRS are now claiming Obama directed the holdover Republican director to “target” conservative groups? If that were the case, why would the IRS admit having done anything wrong? I don’t believe any “tea party” groups were denied their tax exemptions although most were not legally entitled to them.

      What I also can’t stand is the idiots of the right thibking just because the Media is talking Obama (aka doing their job) that means they’ve joined the racist brigade! you can see MSNBC calls out the President when they feel it is appropriate to do so. Democrats report the REAL news even if it goes against their own personal political beliefs. This is much different than FOX that reports LIES and PROPAGANDA on a daily basis. The other day I saw that little TWERP Greg Gutfeld from “The Five” on prime time television calling the President “O’Bummer”. How disrespectful….and they call themselves a NEWS channel? Far from it. No wonder the Republicans on here all whistle the same tune like drones.

      but I have no patience for the people who are still insisting he’s Muslim or not a US citizen. Nobody believed that Barack Obama was born in Kenya, until Birthers started that story.

      Starting from his birth announcement in 1960, to newspaper and magazine articles from when he was in Harvard, to 2011 when the State of Hawaii confirmed it again- consistantly what was published was that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii. So the claims of the thread are a lie- which makes this claim:

      Obama is the BIGGEST CONMAN AND LIAR EVER

      Nothing but hypocritical BS!

      • Merryl

        ConservativeRracists: I don’t know what race you are but by calling people racists because they are against Obama proves that YOU are the racist. THE RACE CARD ISN’T GOING TO WORK ANYMORE. And stop this Democrat/Republic DIVIDE AND CONQUER thing. They get us fighting amongst ourselves and we can’t see THE MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN. It’s the 1% we have to be worried about! We MUST UNITE! WE ARE THE 99%! So some guy called Obama O’Bummer and you say that that’s disrespectful – BUT DO THEY RESPECT US?! He is NOT a US citizen. His birth certificate is fake. There are even videos on YouTube where HE HIMSELF admits he’s from Kenya. He has 37 different Social Security 80 different aliasis (or is visa versa?) HE IS NOT THE MAN YOU THINK HE IS. Oh, and he never went to Harvard. NO ONE REMEMBERS HIM THERE and he’s not in the schoolbook.

        • ConservativeRracists

          thanks for proving my point! You ARE a racist and NO amount of pretending racism doesn’t exist is NOT going to fix that!

          Obama never said he was from Kenya, But I thought you racist called him a liar..

          Answer: Did you know that the officials in Hawaii have stated in legal court papers that the facts on Obama’s long form BC published by the White House are exactly the same, repeat EXACTLY the same, as on what they sent to him? So, consider that fact, and this:

          http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2013/01/ame-o-ospit-or-nstitution-not-in-ospit/

          Then: Only birther “experts” have called it forged, and they have not shown that they are even experts, much less fair and impartial. Those are two reasons why they are not believed by Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck or the National Review (or by Mitt Romney or Paul Ryan or Gingrich or Santorum or Huckabee).

          One proof that Obama’s birth certificate is not forged is Obama’s short-form birth certificate.

          Short-form birth certificates are created by a clerk reading the information from the document in the file, and filling out the computer form that generates the printed short-form birth certificate. The officials in Hawaii have confirmed that they sent a short-form to Obama. So, unless they are lying—and they were Republican officials–the only way that Obama’s birth certificate could have been forged was that it was forged in 2007 and slipped into the file just before the clerk looked at the file. That is not very likely, is it? And it is especially unlikely since at the time Obama was not even the candidate of the Democrats. He was still in the primaries at the time, and he was only a junior senator from Illinois.

          And birther sites have not shown you these real experts

          He is legally able to be President, you can’t stand that a black man is President!

          • Merryl

            ConservativeRracists: So someone is a RACIST (which of course is WORSE that a specieist) because they believe that someones birth certificate if fake? That makes absolutely no sense at all The fact that you see RACISM where there is none PROVES that YOU are the RACIST. STOP PLAYING THE RACE CARD. IT WILL NOT WORK ANYMORE.

Saying anything against Obama is RACIST. This is just a lot of NONSENSE. As far as Obama’s “birth certificate” goes, did you do the research on what Sheriff Joe Arpagio(sp?) has come up with? What about his 80 social security numbers, and 37 aliasis? (Or is that visa-versa). Don’t you think that something a little SUSPICIOUS is going on here? I do. And stop with the crap that people can’t stand the fact that we have a Black president. Most people in this country are White, and most of them voted for him. STOP THE RACISM RACIST!

    To have any of these scandals to affect Obama, congress will have to do more than a lot of rhetoric on committees that do absolutely nothing but increase the rhetoric. None have the guts to take real lawful actions against Obama or any other agency. Individually or collectively, none want to make waves, IMPEACMENT, that will cure the problem. If the House tries and convicts him the senate would not sentence him or at the most a written censure just as they did with both Clintons. I believe Clinton is still called by president with all his perks in place. Individually, they don’t really care about anything above their own secure position. Public opinion does very little to sway their position, only money and special interests work. The next special deal for congress must be replacement with patriotic not political members of government at all levels. These hearings on IRS will end the same nothing but critical rhetoric aimed at bureaucrats that have more effective power and better knowledge on how to use it than they do. Many have been impeached, none removed by impeachment. Nixon resigned before impeachment was complete. He got all of his perks too. The Congressional committees meet knowing the outcome before convening. They just sit around and read bureaucratically prepared statements with some not having read them before convening. Then we
    call it governing, BS

    • Jeff

      The House cannot convict anyone. Impeachment is the equivalent of an indictment. Trial is held in the Senate where 75 votes (75%) are needed for conviction. This House may well decide to waste its time on impeachment, but in the Senate there might not be even 40 votes for conviction. BTW: only 2 presidents have been impeached. But then, few Congresses have ever been as delusional as the sitting one.

      • Vigilant

        Two thirds, not three fourths, of the Senate must vote to convict.

    • http://www.facebook.com/shirley.hall.71868 Shirley Hall

      The reason Nixon RESIGNED rather than be impeached is so he could get the “perks” of an ex-president. I remember watching the Watergate hearings.

      • Jana

        Shirley, You have such twisted logic you probably remember with twisted ears. Your credibility is shot!

        • Bob666

          Yo Jana,

          Actually Shirley got this one correct. While Nixon did many of the same things that presidents before him did (not all), Nixon is the one that got caught-on tape. Think of it like Bill and Monica on a video in the Oval office.

          A deal was brokered and because he would have faced impeachment after firing special prosecutor, Archibald Cox along with criminal charges, he resigned to save face and keep his retirement perks that presidents enjoy.
          I am going to see how this IRS gig shakes out before I jump to conclusions as Mr. Root and others on this site have already done, but I remember Nixon quite well and Obama is no Richard Millhouse Nixon-not even close.

          • Jana

            I will accept it from you but I will NOT accept it from a racist!!! I don’t trust her.

          • Bob666

            Jana,
            I would ask you to think about the statement that you just made. I understand the trust issue, but I have brought some very factual information to this board and I get bad responses from people based on their perception of me.
            Personally, I would bet most of those same people get very bad or non factual information from other sources based on the same flawed perception. I don’t trust FOX news at all, but I listen to them as some times on some issues, they are fair and balance and no less biased than MSNBC.
            The truth almost always lies in the middle.

          • Jana

            Bob, there is a major difference from being rude to a lot of people, which you are many times (you put it differently),and you have explained why you do it, to being a narrow minded little person.
            I actually put up with your style because we did come to an understanding and I believe a mutual respect. I do respect your knowledge of things, and love to hear you explain how you grew up listening to your daddy’s stories and learning from him. So many truths are lost because these stories are not passed down. I realize you know a lot and I can learn from you. Actually I learn a lot from many of the people on this site. On the other hand, I have spent more of my time studying the Bible as well as the Qur’an and the Hadiths.
            Shirley came on this site like a whirlwind thinking she is superior to everyone else, esp. conservatives. She presents herself as impudent and A RACIST, and is trying to pretend she is not.

            Jana,
            There are two things that I would say to you on this.
            First, 90% of the time when I am being “rude”, I am dishing it back to someone who threw the first punch. If people want to start it (and most of the time-they do), I will end it. Life is based on mutual respect and many on this site don’t get it.
            .
            Finally, I realize the site that I am on and know that many of my opinions will not be popular or appreciated by many on this site. That being said, the majority on this site tend to be very narrow minded and dependent on fringe web sites and off beat news outlets that a bad reputation regarding facts.
            .
            But I have never backed down from my beliefs even when they are not popular and that is who I am. Yes, I would like to believe that we have a mutual respect and when we disagree it is on a civil basis.

            Yo Bob,

            21 hours ago you posted that you don’t watch the History Channel or the Military Channel because you are too cheap to buy cable television. Now you post that you listen to FOX news sometimes on some issues, they are fair and balanced and no less biased than MSNBC. Since you obviously listen to both, what am I missing here?

          • Bob666

            Well Don,
            Since you ask, I watch FOX news Sunday on TV with Chris Wallace and because I travel a lot, mostly by car, I listen to both Fox News and MSNBC as both broadcast on Sirus Radio. Bloomberg does the best business reporting.
            One year of Sirux and XM cost about what one month of cable TV cost. I do watch some HBO in hotel when I travel.

            Jana,

            I disagree with you only in the fact that I believe many of them did in fact want to be scientist, but were exploited by the Nazis. Some of them however were members of the Nazi party and there was a great deal of controversy in allowing them here and offering them citizenship. But we wanted their knowledge and research.

            Hitler did approach the US to be an ally before his union with the USSR (who he turned on) and there were prominent Americans who advocated Nazi Germany as an ally in the late 1930’s.

Oh, and Russian is not “our enemy”. I do not let the godverment decide who my enemies are. I make that decision. If I don’t know a person PERSONALLY they can’t be my “enemy”. Besides, our “enemies” become our “friends”. (Example: Germany, Japan). This is all just a GAME by our overlords and I’m not playing it.

          • Bill Henry

            Hate is too strong a word for it. Cautionary concern would be a better description. Remember that Russia still has its nuclear arsenal, and you can bet that there are missiles programmed for major targets in this country. Thanks in part to Mr. Clinton exporting missile technology to China, so it goes, we now have missiles from there which I would bet are programmed for targets here also. A quote comes to mind I believe by Teddy Roosevelt, perhaps to paraphrase, “Speak softly but carry a big stick”. I heard on the news that the President is considering unilaterally decreasing our nuclear arsenal. I served my entire career during the cold war, and at no time did I feel hate toward the USSR. There were many close calls, but fortunately they were resolved diplomatically. You have to understand that when someone bangs his shoe on his desk at the UN and declares we will bury you, then you have to take precautionary measures to prevent it, or your country suffers the consequences. What else would you have done?

            The Brits also were developing a jet concurrently with the Germans. The ME 262 was unreliable. May were found after the defeat of Germany to have been grounded for mechanical problems. At the time we had bombed production of aircraft to the point of non-existence, so it is doubtful that they could have produced enough of them to make any difference in the war. Hitler failure was caused by his opening of the second front in Russia. He had already been defeated in North Africa and Italy, and his final offensive action against the allies produce the battle of the bulge where he lost a staggering number of personnel and armor. The 262 was responsible for some losses of aircraft, but it was proven that they were not invincible, being that several were shot down by the P-51 Mustangs, which was arguably the best aerial combat plane of the war in Europe. For numbers of enemy aircraft shot down during the entire war, one would have to include the Navy F6F Hellcat, which if I am not mistaken held the record.

            Bob, The Nazi’s or the Russians? I know the Russians went to the moon with us in collaboration but I didn’t know the Nazi’s did. I thought the Nazi’s were a faction in the Russian culture like the White Supremacists are in the States.???

          • Bob666

            Jana,

            Much of our early space program was built of the talents of some of the German scientist that we brought here after WWII. The Nazi’s were light years ahead of us in both rocket and jet propulsion and one of the reasons for our push in Germany at the end of WWII was to capture that technology and research and keep the Russians from getting their hands on it (they would just steal much of it later on).

            The Russians were never invited to the Moon as the moon landings happen during the cold war (Yes-Sammy, they were not filmed on a Disney set). Much of the German technology went into weapons technology in the late 1940’s and 1950’s as we had refined the nuclear bomb but wanted a delivery system in the form of a missile in lieu of dropping it from a plane.

            The Nazi’s were the fascist party of Adolph Hitler in Germany and the Russians were the communist. Personally, I never saw a lot of difference between them.

            Sadly you are correct Bob but in a way many of the German Scientists were not really Nazis but were “forced” to be.. We may have won WW2 in the Pacific because we had better and more German scientists in the end. We also may have done better with our space program because of the same reasons, we took more German scientists than the Russians did.

            When it comes to destroying Human freedoms and liberties there isn’t much difference between Nazism and Communism and if we can throw some misguided religious beliefs in as well we can add any form of Jihad, whatever the language or culture or religion. Hitler was just a piece of c*rap doing his evil thing.

          • Bob666

            Yo Mac,
            you are correct in the details between “Nazism” and Communism. The end result for both is a loss of personal liberty and freedom and that is why I lump them together.

            Unchecked religion follows the same inevitable conclusion and history has also proven this out time after time.

          • macgyver1948

            Bob666…I knew what you meant by lumping commies and nazis together in the same evil ooze. Although there are religions who have not fit into that dehumanizing category throughout history there are many which do fit and we have some here today. When a religion believes of itself as being the only right one, its ways the only right ways, in the eyes of God they too fit in that ooze. I just do not like the “ expectable religions” list that some here in our country seem to be living by, it very much violates Freedom Of Religion when used and stated in politics or the other ways around. Unchecked when situations arise is right and we have to ensure Separation of Church
            And State and I want that added to the Constitution and enforced.

          • Bob666

            Yo Mac,
            “Unchecked when situations arise is right and we have to ensure Separation of Church
            And State”

            Amen Brother!

            And I will even throw in a Hallelujah on top!

          • macgyver1948

            Bob666… “Hallelujah on top!” huh, lol… Very good. Shalom Bro, :-)…

          • Bill Henry

            The German scientists had nothing to do with our victory over Japan. That was won totally by the guts and hard fighting of our Marines and the Army following them. The Atom bomb was not devised or aided by German scientists.

          • macgyver1948

            Bill Henry… How can you say “German
            scientists had nothing to do with our victory over Japan”? Is it that the Right doesn’t want you to know what happened in the past (about anything) if it doesn’t suite their agendas? Oh man let’s not ever take anything away from the US Marines and the Army who fought in the Pacific during WW2, NEVER. They
            were brilliant. But also let’s not take away from the German descended scientists who helped us win over there too. Have you ever heard of The Manhattan Project, for only one example, and all that went into making the Atom Bombs which were dropped on Japan? Do you know who some of those scientist were?

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattan_Project

            Bill Henry, have you ever heard of this guy?

            Albert Einstein’s involvement in the making of the first atom bombs.

            ALBERT EINSTEIN and the ATOMIC BOMB

            The physicist Albert Einstein did not directly participate in the invention of the atomic bomb. But as we shall see, he was instrumental in facilitating its development.

            Their commonality lay in their oppressiveness. As far as it being a false flag, both countries declared war on us, not vice versa. They left us little choice.

          • Merryl

            Jana: Nazi’s went to work for NASA.

          • Bob666

            No,

            They went to work for the US Military.

          • macgyver1948

            Jana… Ideologically Nazis and Commies are opposite sides of the political isle, one being extreme Right and the other being extreme Left. If they can get the nasty philosophical and political c*rap out of the picture and just stick to the science things could get done. Same
            here but we are just as bad.

          • Jana

            Yes, we are. The sad thing is the majority of us do want what is best for the country. There are the RADICAL LEFT and the RADICAL RIGHT that we all have to watch out for. The problem is identifying them. They are like chameleons and will sneak in on us and pretend to be like the rest of us and then they show their true colors when it is too late.
            They have the country so divided that we are at each others throat. How sad. I am a conservative/Independent but have friends that I get along with that are Democrats that are not hard leftists, just good people Democrats.

            We do need both sides of the spectrum though to make it even. A bird cannot fly with just one wing, it does take both wings. We need the balance of both left and right, therefore we do need to get along.

          • macgyver1948

            Very true Jana, we do need more than one side or set of views but both sides needs to be in it for the benefit of the individual and not just a corporation or or group or an extreme vision. Yeah a bird with just one wing will fly in circles, if he could fly at all, and that is what extremism, whether in Religion or politics does. The chain, if I may, is no stronger than its weakest link and when it comes to people that weakest link is the individual. We much strengthen liberty for each of us no matter how much we personally may disagree with what that person believes, Exceptions are when it hurts or restricts others physically.

          • macgyver1948

            Merryl…
            Yeah, an example is the little bush invasion of Iraq which was more
            than a false flag, it was BS from before 911. I know many wars are rchestrated in advance. Ain’t politics grand but the politicians are
            just the tools?

          • Merryl

            macguyver1948. Yes, it’s all so sad; people get killed for NOTHING. WE MUST REFUSE THE MADNESS! DON’T FIGHT IN THE ‘WARS’ FOR THEM!

          • macgyver1948

            Merryl…
            Yes, we could do that, refuse to fight, but for that to work as with
            many things it would have to be with great enough numbers. In my day,
            during the Vietnam war and I was in the air force you couldn’t pull
            that off without risking major problems for yourself. It is not about
            people and that is the saddest part. It is about the rich and
            powerful getting more so, It’s always been that way and I wish we
            could figure out how to change it when they have the power.

        • macgyver1948

          Merryl…As I said to you a few minutes ago I agree with you. I hope you understood the rest of my response to you was about and not just redefine my meanings which has happened all too often on this site. Ask if you aren’t sure.

          • Merryl

          • Bob666

            you have not been here long, but it already seems like an eternity.

          • Merryl

            Bob666: Is that a good or bad thing?

        • macgyver1948

          By the way Merryl, I do not hear anyone on the Left claiming Obama is a God or a Messiah or anything super natural but I hear it often enough from the Right. What do you suppose that means? It does build on the divide as you referred to it. We all should see that “1%” for what it is and the tools they use in politics… No way out pledges do not help.

          • Merryl

            macgyver1948 “No way out pledges do not help” – what do you mean by that?

          • macgyver1948

            Merryl…What I mean is a kind of MAFIA-like pledge that when signed the politician cannot defy unless he/she is ready to have their career destroyed. A pledge where it is stated that if a signer violates

            hi/her pledge their careers are “toast” (an actual quote from the owner of the pledge).

            When you have billionaires engineering the pledge for their own personal/business agendas and they have the clout to defend their pledge we need to watch out.
            One very such particular pledge has over 270 P/GOP politicians (there are so few Dems who have signed but the 2 or 3 who did I have to wonder about) in Congress as signers. For example, the very billionaire who name this pledge bears, said during the last
            election. “We do not have to worry about Romney because “Romney” will do as he is told”” (when he is elected president). More reason the Founders wanted big corporate monies kept out of politics but they didn’t know about this in their time. I could also go into
            huge powerful groups wanting donations to campaigns kept secret but I think you get the point. The Pledge I am referring to is known as The Norquist Pledge but that is just one that is controlling many of our politicians and in ways to help the vast majority of us.

            Did I answer your question?

          • Bob666

            Ala Grover Norquist-the modern age Political Don!

          • macgyver1948

            Yep, the former little bush adviser is one of them… But he is not alone, we need to watch out so we don’t get koched as well.

            Maybe the High Priest elitist attitude, Greek columns, reverberator, Chris Mathews tingling leg and wetting his pants at the sight of “The one we’ve been waiting for” and actually comparing him to God has something to do with it? Oh, that’s right…..Chris Mathews is on the Right…..duh.

          • Hawk!

            We’ll, I’m on the left (or at least was) and he IS procaiming messiah-like abilities.How else does he get away with Fast & Furious, Benhaghzi, evoking executive privilidge & executive decrees as he sees fit and hassassing his enemies into silence while they prove they did nothing illegal. If you smell a rat there are a hundred others already buried you don’t smell or see. This guy and those doing his bidding are bad news and need to be purged as examples of what America is NOT!

          • macgyver1948

            Hawk!… I do not know, how could I but you will have to ask Obama how he can, if he is, getting away with Fast & Furious, Benhaghzi, or whatever. Maybe he is doing as the Right is proclaiming but we do not know that yet. Stop convicting people with just accusations and no real proof, that is so UN-American. If he is guilty I want him gone too.

            One thing for sure is that he is not “(he IS) procaiming messiah-like abilitirs” (your exact wording) as we see many on the Right proclaiming. That is only in the minds of the Right minded and not in reality. Bring in a god like entity in this for your selves if you want but keep it out of it for others. It is so ridiculous and childish when you guys do this. Your fantasies should be private since no one else is interested. WOW!!!, can you please get back to reality???

    The Tea Party and other groups alike started with people who were alarmed at big government and an infringing government. Now the truth has come around to most intelligent people in a way that made the Tea Party and like groups the victim of big government, and at the same time, these same groups proved that what they were right. Like they say “What goes around come around”, and I hope the same thing will come true to those corrupt power grabbers in government.

  • Michael

    I non concur on your assessment in regards to Benghazi – every American SHOULD care how and why those 4 men were allowed to be murdered and who is responsible. Be it hillary or obama, but I am sure there is more than enough blame to go around.

    • Wellarmed

      What concerns me is that there is something much worse than simple incompetence that occurred at the State Department the night of the Benghazi attack.

      In particular the denial of the extra security team (close to 40 special operators) when requested by Ambassador Stevens.Now the White House is attempting to circle the wagons by making this out to be related to the sequester issues which did not coincide with the Benghazi timeline. Why?

      Did Ambassador Stevens have differences with the State Department regarding policies that were being implemented in Libya and through out the Middle East? If that were the case, would the disclosure be enough to justify having him removed/silenced (Vince Foster style)?

      I cannot recall at any time in past or recent history that the White House can or would give a stand down order like he did the night of Benghazi? It is unprecedented and there must be a motive for that decision, so what is it? That is what the media should be asking?

      I am certain that the American people could accept incompetence (as bad as that sounds) as a reason for the failure to secure the consulate, but if there was an ulterior motive then all bets would be off and anything short of their heads on a platter would not suffice.

      Prosecution would be the least of their worries if it is anything other than incompetence were to blame.

The entire system needs to be put back under the restrictions and checks and balances that were written into our governing document The Constitution of the United States of America. When one of these liberal shills post on here we need to have ready a pasteable copy of the Constitution in it original form outlining the restraints on government and stripping those amendments which have changed our rights under the Bill of Rights excepting those having to do with the rights of those who were denied them in the past. If we don’t do something about it we will be doomed to a life of servitude to a government of elitist despots who own the economy.

There will be MUCH MORE to follow if this kind of savagery is allowed to go allowed to go unpunished. Obama doesn’t have the class of Richard Nixon who stepped down to avoid the American people a major scandle WHICH WAS MUCH LESS IN SCOPE THAN THIS mess. This SOB and those associated need to go, government needs to be drasitcally pared down until it at least resembles the Constitutional Republic it was meant to be. Just because the American public has been make attentiin defecit doesn’t mean the American media and legal community has to be.

      Obama believes no one can touch him no matter what laws he breaks due to the fact he’s black and thinks everyone is afraid to impeach him for it could cause the black Americans to riot .we should call his bluff and let the chips fall where they may, we’re proud, brave Americans and not afraid of tyrants, in the course of our history we stood up against tyranny and won—-America has a lot of intelligent brave black people who see that Obama is bad for their country and would not riot. Lets hope and pray that a good man like Ben Carson runs for President in 2016 we have to jump start America again to bring it back to its glory.

    What is going to happen when it’s proven that Obama knew all about the IRS Scandal and then allowed it to go on since he has been President? Now this IRS Scandal didn’t start with Obama when he became President, it’s been going on for years but got worst in the last few years. The IRS has became the most feared of any of our Government institutions by the American people. Just think how many millions of dollars the people have spent protecting themselves from the IRS Audits only to loose. This is something any Dictator in some foreign country would do and now we know it’s been going on in America for years but got worst since Obama has became President.

  • rick0857

    I don’t know how the author can claim in his article that the first head has rolled. In reality all that happened to Smith was he left his cushy government job a couple of weeks earlier than he planned. He is going to receive all of his pension, benefits and whatever else congress has bestowed upon these union thugs that work for the government.

    Nothing has happened to anyone and nothing will. No one will be fired and if they are fired they will ultimately get their jobs back in a different agency of course. In six months or less from now they will be back to work all with back pay and most likely a bonus to boot. They will not suffer any financial penalty, unlike the people and groups they targeted who had to spend thousands of dollars just proving their innocence.

    This government is too big, too powerful, and completely out of control. The IRS and just about every other alphabet agency in the government should and must be eliminated and all of these centralized powers in Washington returned to the States where they belong. Fire all these government workers and let them find out what it’s like to draw an un-employment check for a change!!

  • Bill Henry

    Sorry. As is indicated on my post ConservativeRacists was the target.

  • $9913635

    We simply must remove the negro.

    Lot of people don’t realize the 17th Amendment was never ratified and income tax as it stands is actually ILLEGAL by Constitutional standards and was ruled that way in early Supreme Court cases.

    So why the 360? Because most al laws are based on “moods” which have no legal standing in court.

    The bottom line is we do not have “income” taxes but wages and salaries in COMPENSATION for work.

    Only corporations and businesses have “income” tax. And besides as one person stated the government does not need taxes to operate, it simply PRINTS the money.

    Taxes were put to enslave the population. We have never been FREED people. That is why all of it is tied to INCOME. No matter how much you make they take more, so you have to keep working night and day! See how it works?
