Cleta Mitchell To Congress: DOJ IRS Investigation Is A Sham, Non-Existent”

 

 

Published on Feb 6, 2014

” Cleta Mitchell told Congress today the IRS is still targeting conservative groups. Mitchell also said the “ongoing” DOJ investigation is a complete sham.

” I want to make three primary points here. First, the IRS scandal is real. It’s not pretend, it’s real. Number two, the IRS scandal is not just a bunch of bone-headed bureaucrats in some remote office contrary to what the President of the United States told the American People on Sunday. And, number 3, the IRS scandal is not over. It is continuing to this day. And, the Department of Justice Investigation is a sham. It is a nonexistent investigation.” “

DEA Official Loses It Over Marijuana Legalization At Senate Hearing. An Existential Threat To His Agency?

 

 

 

 

” James L. Capra is a career government official. Much of his life has been spent in drug law enforcement. He is a politician and a bureaucrat. He has constituencies he represents. He has federal money to protect. Ending marijuana prohibition means ending a big part of everything this guy has worked for for a long time. He doesn’t want to see the footprint of the DEA diminish on his watch, which is understandable.”

 

 

   Once in power , no one relinquishes it voluntarily . That is the defining rule of bureaucracy and one of the biggest problems in government today . Every law that Congress passes needs to have a sunset clause , especially considering the poor quality of the average legislator and the very high incidence of the unintended consequences that result from the lawmaker’s attitude of “something has to be done” that comes with every “crisis” … TERM LIMITS for all politicians and TERM LIMITS for their “laws” as well .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obamacare Contractors: Don’t Blame Us

 

 

 

” The Obamacare website contractors plan to tell Congress on Thursday that they are not to blame for the massive problems at HealthCare.gov and that they completed successful testing before the Oct. 1 launch.

But, according to prepared testimony, the four contractors ran into unforeseen problems once open enrollment began. The testimony offers a slight glimpse into the problems that made the website all but unworkable — and warnings that the problems are far from over.

Lawmakers are expected to press the four contractors for details on what went wrong and when they – and the White House – knew about it.

The federal exchange underwent eight technical reviews before Oct. 1 and passed, CGI Federal senior vice president Cheryl Campbell plans to tell the House Energy and Commerce Committee. CGI is considered the lead contractors on HealthCare.gov, the federal exchange website.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IRS officials in Washington ordered special scrutiny: congressional investigation finds

” IRS employees have told congressional investigators that they were ordered by the agency’s Washington office to give extra scrutiny to tea party groups’ applications for tax-exempt status, according to excerpts from interviews with the employees that were released by House committee chairmen Wednesday.

Carter Hull, a tax law specialist with 48 years of experience at the IRS, told investigators that Lois Lerner, the former head of the Exempt Organizations division, demanded he send some of the reviews of tea party groups to the IRS chief counsel’s office in Washington. The chief counsel is one of two political appointees in the IRS.”

There is a stench that adheres itself to everyone and everything Obama touches 

 

 

 

” Here is what I wonder. Did David Petraeus allow himself to be blackmailed by the minions of Barack Obama?

The testimony Petraeus gave Congress on Benghazi shortly after the assassination of our ambassador to Libya was a restatement of the patently false narrative foisted on the country by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their underlings — to wit, that the assault on the American consulate was a spontaneous demonstration in reaction to the Coptic Christian’s Youtube video.

Petraeus had to know better. The Benghazi bungle took place on the anniversary of 9/11. There was plenty of intelligence available to Petraeus prior to the event suggesting that Al Qu’aeda was becoming a real force in the region, and the emails that the CIA sent the White House at the time indicate that the folks in the agency knew within hours that the attack had been carefully planned and knew who in Benghazi was responsible.

So why did a man always known for his honor and integrity go before a Congressional committee and lie through his teeth? If Washington were Chicago, we would know the answer. Blackmail is, in Chicago, standard operating procedure. Is Washington now Chicago? Is Petraeus leaving office a disgraced and broken man because one act of dishonor and betrayal led him to commit another far more shameful?”
