Thread: IRS, DOJ, Benghazi... Are the wheels coming off?

  1. #61
    With the media overwhelmingly siding with the criminals by burying the issues, it will be hard to maintain any traction. If this was a Republican president, all of these issues would be front page news on the New York Times for at least 6 months. No doubt about it.

    I cannot believe how fast the once great USA is slipping into the toilet with this guy in charge. This is no longer the country that I grew up in.

    The media is twisting the IRS story to say that progressive groups were targeted. This is absurd and the IRS Inspector General report states in clear terms that progressive groups were not singled out like tea party groups.

    To add insult to injury, the new IRS Chief Danny Werfel IRS testified today before the House Ways and Means Committee that his investigation has found no wrong doing. If this is the case, why did the IRS apologize for targeting the tea party?

    Werfel is a real monkey's ass. He also made a request that the House increase IRS funding by $1 billion.

    The House Oversight Committee ruled on Friday that Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights due to her making nine separate claims of innocence after taking the Fifth.

    At best, the House can call Lerner back to testify and she could be held in contempt of Congress should she continue to plead the 5th. The contempt charges would have to prosecuted by Holder and at most Lerner faces a maximum $1,000 fine and potential 12-month prison sentence.

    Correct. Werfel needs the money to keep it on the down-low.

    One more scandal

    European officials lash out at new NSA spying report

    A top German official accused the United States on Sunday of using "Cold War" methods against its allies, after a German magazine cited secret intelligence documents to claim that U.S. spies bugged European Union offices.

    Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger was responding to a report by German news weekly Der Spiegel, which claimed that the U.S. National Security Agency eavesdropped on EU offices in Washington, New York and Brussels. The magazine cited classified U.S. documents taken by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden that it said it had partly seen.
    "If the media reports are accurate, then this recalls the methods used by enemies during the Cold War," Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger said in a statement to The Associated Press.
    "It is beyond comprehension that our friends in the United States see Europeans as enemies," she said, calling for an "immediate and comprehensive" response from the U.S. government to the claims.
    Other European officials demanded an explanation from the U.S.
    "I am deeply worried and shocked about the allegations," European Parliament President Martin Schulz said in a statement, according to CNN. "If the allegations prove to be true, it would be an extremely serious matter which will have a severe impact on EU-US relations. On behalf of the European Parliament, I demand full clarification and require further information speedily from the U.S. authorities with regard to these allegations."

    Honestly I have to laugh, because I don't know how they can find something interesting to spy overthere. Europe is a cacophony, good luck to find what you want guys

    When you have a government run by someone who is a Marxist at heart, no one can be trusted. It would not surprise me one bit if Obama is spying on our allies. He would, of course, blame it on Bush.

    A lot of Cold War practices are obsolete. For one, we need to get out of NATO. The Europeans no longer need us for protection from the Soviets. They only need the 75% funding of NATO that we provide. Too many European countries have refused to contribute their share to the group that promises to protect them.

    I agree with you that a lot of cold war practices are obsolete. NATO is the armed arm of the US in Europe, EU is talking about their own army. Well I am an eurosceptic and I don't want my country fusioning with other european countries, I wish that each european country keep their sovereignty and rather work together independently.

    The foxes are guarding the hen house. Charles Edwards, deputy inspector general at the Department of Homeland Security, is under investigation.

    In one instance, Edwards reportedly pressured subordinates to approve his wife’s seven-month teleworking stint in India and provided a government-issued Blackberry cellphone for her personal use while abroad.
    He also stands accused of misusing federal funds by traveling regularly to Fort Lauderdale, Florida under the guise of conducting routine inspections of a local inspector general’s office. In reality, whistle-blowers allege that Edwards was attending Ph. D classes at Nova Southeastern University, billing airline tickets, car rentals and hotel fees to the federal government.

    Obama is a Marxist but his underlying philosophy is anti-colonialism. Anti-colonialism is what ties Marxism into Obama's other philosophies namely Islam, Social Justice, and Black Liberation Theology. Obama spent 20 years listening to Rev. Jeremiah “G-D America” Wright ranting on Black Liberation Theology. Why? There's something here on the connection between Black Liberation Theology and Islam Jihad.

    This is where is get interesting. Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood doctrine

    It seems that the new mission of NATO is to support the Muslim Brotherhood. This connects to Benghazi and Syria. NATO member Turkey is also a working with the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Perhaps this is a reason for the interest in bugging EU offices.

    There isn't much of the US Army left in Europe. The US is cutting back to 60,000 troops in Europe. Most of this is support and command. The only combat forces are US Army NATO Brigade, 173rd Airborne Brigade in Italy and 2nd Calvary Regiment in Germany.

    Even the European are reducing their forces. The British are reducing their Army to their lowest numbers since the Crimean War of just 97,000.

    NSA recruitment drive goes horribly wrong

    Tahir: "Do you consider Germany and the countries that the NSA has been spying upon to be adversaries, or are you, right now, not speaking the truth?"
    Recruiter 1:
    "You can define adversary as 'enemy' and, clearly, Germany is not our enemy. But would we have foreign national interests from an intelligence perspective on what's going on across the globe? Yeah, we do."

    The sad thing is that Congress has never addressed the old scandals. Over the weekend a Mexican police chief was killed with a 'Fast and Furious' gun.

    To date, "some 211 people [have been] killed by Fast and Furious weapons in Mexico." In the U.S., Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was gunned down with a Fast and Furious weapon in December 2010.
