Proof that the IRS scandal is knocking on the West Wing doors


not the scandals youre looking for

The scandals buzzing about Barack Obama are nearing their origins. The proof of this was seen this past weekend when the heavyweights were sent out to distract America from the truth.

David Plouffe:

“There’s been no suggestion — the independent, the prosecutor looked at this, excuse me, the inspector general said there was no politics involved in this,” Plouffe said. “No one has indicated at all that the White House is involved. The IRS director was appointed under President [George W.] Bush, served under both presidents, attested…. So this was not a political pursuit.”


ROVE: Baloney. Baloney.
PLOUFFE: Not baloney, Karl.
ROVE: If it was not political then why are only conservative groups being targeted?
PLOUFFE: There were liberal groups targeted.
ROVE: Oh really? Name one. Name one. But what conservative, what liberal group had Tea Party or patriot in its name that it was targeted? Not a single liberal group has appeared to say…
PLOUFFE: You’re taking license here, Karl.
ROVE: No, I’m not. I am not at all.
PLOUFFE: This was not an effort driven by the White House. It would be the dumbest political effort of all time. OK? This was IRS people —
ROVE: I didn’t suggest it was being driven by the White House. But I do think when the President—
PLOUFFE: So you think people sitting in the Cincinnati office decided —

Rove finished up by blaming the president and said those at the top in the Obama administration should have done a better job in policing the IRS.

“No, no, I think people sitting in Cincinnati, Laguna Nigel, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C., listened to Sen. Max Baucus, Sen. Chuck Schumer, President Obama,” Rove added. “When President Obama goes out in 2008, 2010 and calls these groups, quote, ‘a threat to democracy,’ he’s blowing the dog whistle.”

“We have a culture at the IRS that has been going after conservative groups,” Rove added. “And this administration has done an ineffective job of managing it. When this issue came up in 2010, if the administration was serious about it, President Obama should have picked up the phone and called Geithner at Treasury and said, ‘You better get your secretary for Treasury or the undersecretary to check into this because this is corrosive of our democracy to have the IRS targeting conservative groups.’”

Valerie Jarrett: Sh*t happens

“In any given day, our administration has about 2 million employees, and things happen,” Jarrett tells the Boston Globe. “We put in process procedures to make sure if there has been any wrongdoing, there will be appropriate consequences, and we will move on.”

Jarrett just wants to move on from the scandals. And, she says, the American people want these scandals not to serve as a distraction.

“We have every confidence that people within the White House have behaved appropriately,” Jarrett says. “People all around the country are counting on us not to get distracted or bogged down by this.”

She adds, “I think everybody knows he’s doing his best. … Our focus is moving the country forward.”

The scandals, the Boston Globe summarizes, are “the singling out of the groups by the IRS, and … the Department of Justice’s combing through phone records of journalists at the Associated Press.” On the IRS scandal, the president of the United States claims to have found out about the targeting of conservatives through press reports–despite the fact that the White House counsel, Kathryn Ruemmler, knew about it for weeks prior.

Remember that Obama secret meeting with the liberal press? It’s bearing fruit. The Obama sycophants are in full bloom:

NY Times Editor Jill Abramson:

BOB SCHIEFFER: It’s also about nobody seems to know anything. Officials at the White House didn’t know about the IRS and the troubles they were having. Who knows who knew what was going on in Benghazi when they were trying to draw up these things. And then we get to this leak investigation. It seems to me this might go beyond the Justice Department.

JILL ABRAMSON: It’s very easy to lump all of these issues together. I know that they absorb journalists inside of Washington. But I’m not sure how much any of these particular issues has absorbed the American public who I think are hoping against hope that the economy is at last showing some strength and maybe giving the President some credit for the fact that there are some hopeful signs and who are concerned about things like the continued soaring costs of health care, which the Times had on the front page today.

SCHIEFFER: But you don’t, you wouldn’t say that you think it’s not something we ought to be concerned about?

ABRAMSON: No, I mean, clearly I’m very concerned about the leak cases, which is why I came here to talk to you this morning. But I’m just not sure, you know, they come together and create, you know — quote, unquote — “an atmosphere of scandal.”

BOB WOODWARD: No, that’s absolutely true. But we need facts. We need evidence…

And of course, Candy Crowley

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service agents who inappropriately targeted conservative groups had been following orders from the Obama administration, House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said on Sunday.

And he called the administration’s top spokesman a liar.

Last month the IRS said it had identified two “rogue agents” in the department’s Cincinnati office who were overly aggressive in the handling of Tea Party groups seeking tax-exempt status. Issa said his committee has found otherwise.

“As late as last week the administration’s still trying to say there’s a few rogue agents in Cincinnati when in fact the indication is they were directly being ordered from Washington,” Issa told Candy Crowley on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Issa’s committee provided CNN partial transcripts of its interviews with Cincinnati IRS agents. Crowley read from one transcript in which an investigator asked an agent if directions for extra Tea Party scrutiny had emanated from Washington. “I believe so,” the agent said.

Crowley was not impressed. “It’s totally not definitive,” she said of the excerpt.

Prepare to be inundated with this sort of tripe with both greater frequency and urgency.

The White House talking point of the day is “GOP overreach”

We all know that real history is rarely taught in our public schools anymore.
But DrJohn’s essay is a real good example of why it is not taught.
Wouldn’t want the rabble to learn from mistakes made previously in our world’s past and then oust Obama and his thugs so as to stop it happening again here and now….would we?
Well, the liberals teaching at our schools wouldn’t want that.

But some of us REMEMBER what happened before.
Herbert E. Meyer served during the Reagan Administration as Special Assistant to the Director of Central Intelligence and Vice Chairman of the CIA’s National Intelligence Council. He is the recipient of the National Intelligence Distinguished Service Medal, the intelligence community’s highest honor, and the author of How to Analyze Information and The Cure for Poverty.

Today he wrote something unheard of and shocking because it teaches from history and is therefore not PC in the least.

He wrote why no ”smoking gun,” tying Obama to these scandals will emerge.
He began with these words:

He wrote:

Study history, and you will understand why no such document is ever likely to be found:
That just isn’t how these things work.
Very few people are aware of this, but there is no document — not one — linking Adolf Hitler to the Holocaust.
Why not?
Because Hitler didn’t need to sign a document ordering the slaughter of six million Jews.
All he needed to do was to demonize his enemy in speeches at the Reichstag, on the radio, and from one end of Germany to the other — then hire thugs like Herman Goering, Heinrich Himmler, Adolf Eichmann, and Josef Goebbels.
They knew what der Fuhrer wanted, and der Fuhrer knew he could trust his henchman to get the job done — no matter how, no matter what may be the law — and to not bother him with the gory details.

We have seen, heard and read many Obama speeches where ”an enemy” (usually anyone who disagrees with Obama’s policies) is demonized.
Obama even demonized the Supreme Court while they sat right in front of him!
Obama demonized Paul Ryan while he sat right in front of him!
Obama told Latino voters to help him “punish our enemies and reward our friends.”

And who are the ”thugs?”
Eric Holder, old Democrat party operative, who called the American people who had just elected their 1st black (OK, 1/2 white) president, ”cowards.”
Thomas Donilon, old Democrat party operative, rich off of Fannie Mae.
Hillary (explain that $100,000 overnight cattle futures trade) Clinton.
David Axelrod, Democrat Party Chicago thug.
David Plouffe, Democrat Party Chicago thug.

So, it’s a two-part ploy.
No literal smoking gun.
Just History, slapping us in the face if we ignore it.

YOU know I have a creepy feeling that THEY willingly WANT TO PUSH THE PEOPLE
TO EXASPERATION, and if you see the revolts which OBAMA started in MUSLIM COUNTRIES,
he might think he could succeed here, and we look at the same pattern of pushing the PEOPLE,
like the other nation’s rebellions,
here in AMERICA the PEOPLE are questioned by the IRS, the journalists are shown the bully actions of the LEADERS, and there is no response punitive to the BENGHASI MASSACRE,
OBAMA has create an anger far to imagine with the citizens,
and why did OBAMA bought so much WEAPONS and DRONES, saying it’t for the MUSLIMS,
but he would coldly use it on AMERICANS, because he is cold blood and dangerous,
and why does he cut the MILITARY IN A WAR TIME?
he created an explosif situation , how far will he go lke this? follow him,

What the hell are all those czars doing? They haven’t been screened by the senate. Reagan appointed one for the war on drugs. The Senate scrutinized and accepted the appointee. I can safely bet that these czars are the droids we are looking for. Move along. Move along.

Jarrett just wants to move on from the scandals. And, she says, the American people want these scandals not to serve as a distraction. Proof positive that progs think they know what is best for the unwashed masses. This arrogant nitwit believes she speaks for 300 million individuals.

I do not want Congress, or Obama, to do or pass any more NONESSENTIAL legislation, until this is 100% CLEARED UP.. COMPLETELY.. NO MORE “under the rug” sweeping…..

what about the IRS HEAD GOES TO THE WHITE HOUSE OVER 100 TIMES and then it turns out taht was how many times he was CLEARED to go, but he actually only went 11 times. Or again Menenedez and teh underage Dominican hookers. The Rightwing is always screaming SCANDAL. no wonder that the GOP has an approval rating of less than 25%
Americans want Congress to act on improving jobs, not always crying WOLF !! WOLF!!! I SEE A WOLF really.


Get over your fixation with Menendez’s hookers. And frankly, I don’t care if Shulman was sleeping in the Lincoln bedroom. What I want to know is why his agency was targeting the same people his wife was targeting while she was working for a non-profit, and OFA, herself.

Those are Arianna’s exact talking points.

At work – so not have had time to read through all plus comments — but one thing did JUMP out at me – and that was the way Rove soft pedaled the WH involvement by saying “they should have managed the IRS better” – uh what?? — they managed the IRS exactly how they intended to manage (i.e. use) the IRS — and the communist director and his OWS wife were right there johnnie on the spot — along with many others within the IRS gestapo!

thank you for the good link

@john: Thank you for reminding us of the indoctrinated idiots we are trying to clean up after. When all the facts are laid out on the table, you come up short and you know it. I’m fine if people support Obama for purely superficial reasons, and are just following the cult of personality that has worked for usurpers in the past. I just wish they had the intelligence to recognize their own faulty logic and admit the truth — they are supporting an emotion, not a clear and skeptical analysis of those they put into power.

Use all the made-up stats you want (25% . . . yeah right). Bottom line: Obama is the worst President in most people’s lifetime, and the socioeconomic damage done in the name of this demagogue will take decades to clean up.

Congress has been a hedge against the current administration’s attempts at seizing absolute control of this country. That’s not their function or right. You need some education, though media-induced ignorance is working all to well for you and all those others who think they are somehow the “majority.” Everyone in the country gets a voice, from the African-American preacher, to the hill-billy bigot, to the under-employed house husband/wife. We the people are equal, and just because the current propaganda service had handed you a predigested point of view — and you see that point of view re-affirmed again and again — it doesn’t mean your view has any primacy over mine or anyone else.

If you took a good look at what you are pushing, you’d see that it’s tyrannical, and completely authoritarian. No sir. The rest of us will not sit by and let your ignorance kill democracy. Stop making an ass of yourself on this site and go find a way to support our citizens. Handing power over to incompetent politicians isn’t helping anyone.

Every time you post something, you only validate the concerns many of us have with the current admin and their ability to controls the minds of the low-information portion of the populace (which is much less than 50%, so get off it).

No the IRS scandal is a distraction from Benghazi. I believe the only reason it started (with an IRS ‘apology’) was to kick up a cloud of ‘scandal’ and obscure something (Benghazi) which can be directly linked to the White House. Notice how Benghazi has taken a back seat to the ‘IRS’ and AP ‘scandals’ – this gives the media something else to talk about and leads to their current claims: ‘GOP Overreach’. “Why won’t the GOP do anything else?” “We’re tired of hearing about these scandals – lets move on!”.

The IRS scandal won’t link to the WH – at most it be linked to Learner. Same with the AP wiretap ‘scandal’ at most it’ll lead to Holder (who is already damaged goods). A couple of people under the bus (to be awarded with a fat think-tank job to be named later) and Benghazi is effectively under control.

the ol smokescreen.. you may well be right…

NOT a big ROVE fan either… Time the OLD DINOSAURS of the GOP stepped down.. and we got some FRESH faces with fresh IDEAS….


So John’s a Huffington parrot? I didn’t know they could type.


“Obama is Great! Obama is Great” AWWWWK!!!

Former IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman‘s 157 meetings at the White House is now more curious with the revelation that he attended meetings with Stephanie Cutter, Deputy Campaign Manager for President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign.

And @Hankster58: “Obama is Great! Obama is Great” AWWWWK!!!
There is a REAL parrot named Smokey who already has that job.

Nan G
that’s good thank you,
