HEY LOIS, IF YOU DIDN’T DO ANYTHING WRONG, THEN THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO REASON TO PLEA THE FIFTH.
In an interview with The Politico, an unapologetic Lois Lerner broke her silence and claims, “I didn’t do anything wrong.” PLEASE, just like a lib, always the victim. It is just a coincidence that the department that you were in charge of went after Tea Party and Conservative non-profit groups in an effort to marginalize them heading into the 2012 elections. It is just a coincidence that the IRS scandal was more than just two rogue agents. It is just a coincidence that the IRS scandal leads back to Washington, DC federal IRS offices. It is also another coincidence that your emails have gone missing and your Blackerberry as well. And of course it was also just a coincidence that when given an opportunity to provide testimony under oath to Congress that you have plead the fifth not once, but twice. Who are you kidding? Yup, not a smidgen of corruption. Gee Lois, why would you need to plea the 5th to protect yourself against self-incrimination, if you didn’t do anything wrong. HMM?
Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS.
Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal.
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m proud of my career and the job I did for this country.”
The portrait that emerges shows Lerner is, indeed, fierce, unapologetic and perhaps even tone-deaf when she says things that show her Democratic leanings. She had a quick temper and may have intimidated co-workers who could have helped her out of this mess. It’s easy to see how Republicans have seized on the image of a devilish figure cracking down on conservative nonprofits.
So were the emails destroyed, or do they exist and this has been nothing but an exercise in stonewalling.
- According to Rep. Jason Chaffetz, they were caught on September 10, 2014 in two separate border locations. The 4 had ties to known terrorist groups
Three Afghan National Army Soldiers Missing From Cape Cod Base … Last Seen at the Cape Cod Mall in Hyannis, MA (Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Cpt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada & Cpt. Noorullah Aminyar)
ABC News is reporting that 3 Afghanistan National Army soldiers are missing from their Cape Cod base in Massachusetts. The three soldiers arrived in the United States on September 11 for a training mission, Exercise Regional Cooperation. According to reports, they have gone missing after a trip to a shopping mall in Hyannis, MA. This is the second time in a week that Afghan security trainees in the United States have disappeared. The three men currently missing in Massachusetts are Afghanistan National Army Soldiers Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Cpt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Cpt. Noorullah Aminyar.
Police and military officials were searching Sunday for three soldiers from the Afghanistan National Army who went missing during a training exercise at a Cape Cod military base.
The Afghan soldiers had been participating in a U.S. Central Command Regional Cooperation training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod, U.S. military officials said. They arrived at Camp Edwards on Sept. 11 and were last seen at the Cape Cod Mall in Hyannis.
The soldiers were reporting missing by base security personnel on Saturday night. They were identified as Major Jan Mohammad Arash, Captain Mohammad Nasir Askarzada and Captain Noorullah Aminyar.
Base and exercise officials were working with local and state authorities to locate them. There is no indication the soldiers pose any threat to the public, military officials said.
The Massachusetts National Guard said that the three soldiers do not appear to pose any threat to the public. Really? What are they going to say? We have let three Afghan high ranking soldiers out of our sight and are wondering around America? The three men were senior military officers from Afghanistan and were cleared by the US State Department to participate in the exercise. Oh that just makes me oh so confident. How is it that we cannot keep tabs on anyone who comes to this country? Do you know how far it is from Quantico, VA to Buffalo, NY?
This is not the first reported case of Afghan nationals who have gone missing while undergoing a training program in the US. Two Afghan policemen who were in taking part in an intensive DEA training program in Quantico, Va., went missing while on a sightseeing trip last Thursday. They were found in Buffalo, NY, on Friday.
Arrest Warrant Issued for Jesse L. Matthew for Traffic Violation, Person of Interest in Case of Missing Hannah Graham
An arrest warrant has been issued for Jesse L. “JL” Matthew, the person of interest in the disappearance of missing UVA student Hannah Graham. The arrest warrant is not for his connection with the case of missing Hannah Graham, but instead for a traffic violation for reckless driving. Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said at a news conference Sunday that Virginia State Police have issued warrants for Jesse Matthew on a charge of misdemeanor reckless driving. Police Chief Longo went on the say, “I believe Jesse Matthew was the last person she was seen with before she vanished off the face of the Earth because it’s been a week and we can’t find her. I’ve made no mistake about it. We want to talk to Jesse Matthew. We want to talk to him. We want to talk to him about his interaction with this sweet, young girl we can’t find.” 18 year old Hannah Elizabeth Graham has been missing since September 13, 2014 in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Jesse ‘LJ’ Matthew, POI
An arrest warrant has been issued for a person of interest in the disappearance of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, but he is not being sought for anything to do with the case.
Charlottesville, Va., police said today they are looking for Jesse L. Matthew, 32, on two counts of reckless driving, because he sped away from the police station Saturday after showing up there and asking for a lawyer.
Police say Matthew was seen driving at a high rate of speed, before he evaded capture by authorities monitoring his whereabouts.
Matthew is still a “person with whom we would like to talk to about the whereabouts of Hannah Graham,” Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said.
ESPN’s Samantha Ponder Shreds Florida St QB Jameis Winston … “We’re Asking that You Don’t Lie, You Don’t Cheat, You Don’t Steal, and You Don’t Disrespect Women.”
ESPN’s Samantha Ponder rips Florida State QB Jameis Winston for his conduct and lack of character. During Saturday’s ESPN College Game Day, Samantha Ponder said what should be the obvious in what we expect not only from Jameis Winston, but from all individuals, and not just college athletes.
“Here’s what I’m not buying. I’m not buying that the expectations are too high. Here’s what we’re asking from him: We’re asking that you don’t lie, you don’t cheat, you don’t steal, and you don’t disrespect women,” Ponder said. “And I know people want to say, ‘Oh, he’s naive and there’s some immaturity there.’ I just think we’re not giving him enough credit. He knows right from wrong. He understands that the things he’s done are wrong but he continues to make those same mistakes.”
It is too bad FSU did not lose last night, it would have been an even greater learning experience for Jameis Winston.

Suspended Florida State QB Jameis Winston Warms Up in Pads During Pregame … Sent Back to Locker Room to Change by Frustrated Coach Jimbo Fisher
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … WHAT PART ABOUT YOU ARE FRIGGIN SUSPENDED FOR THE GAME DON’T YOU QUITE GET JAMEIS?
Simply amazing, this
kid punk just does not get it that rules apply to him. Suspended Florida St. QB Jameis Winston came out in full pads during pregame warm ups and was acting like nothing was the matter and this was like every game. Head shaking. Florida State Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher apparently was taken by surprise at Winston dressing out and sent Winston back to the locker room to change.
The Florida State Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback was suspended for Saturday night’s game against Clemson, but that didn’t stop him from showing up in full uniform during pre-game warm-ups. Tallahassee Democrat FSU beat writer Natalie Pierre tweeted out the following photo of Winston taking snaps with the Seminoles’ other quarterbacks.
Florida State QB & Heisman Trophy Winner Jameis Winston Has been Suspended for the Entire Game Against ACC Foe Clemson
Jameis Winston is out for the entire game against Clemson …
Florida State president Garnett S. Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox announced in a joint statement, “Based upon the results of our continuing investigation of Tuesday’s incident involving Jameis Winston, we have decided to not play him for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday night.”
Continuing investigation? Who is FSU kidding. The Seminoles have been guilted and forced into suspending their, all too often in trouble, quarterback Jameis Winston for the entire game because of pressure from alums, social media, the media from the fire storm that was created after their joke of a half-game suspension following Winston’s latest indiscretion. It would appear Winston has learned nothing from his past troubles. Then again why should he have, he has never been punished. One game is probably not even enough.
Winston’s suspension stems from a Tuesday incident in which he stood on a table and yelled an obscene phrase in the student union on Florida State’s campus. A number of students saw Winston yell the phrase and tweeted about what they saw.
Winston reportedly was not entirely truthful with Florida State officials when he was questioned about the incident. He then admitted the entire story. Thus the reason for the extended suspension.

22 year old Theresa DeKeyzer has been missing since Monday, June 16, 2014 in Warren, Michigan. Theresa has not been seen after being dropped off about four blocks from her home her boyfriend near 9 Mile Road and Van Dyke Avenue. Also, her cellphone has not been used has her bank accounts been accessed since that day. Police have previously interviewed DeKeyzer’s 37-year-old boyfriend, Scott Wobbe, who is currently jailed in a drug case. They’ve also searched his home with cadaver dogs, but found no evidence to show that he was involved in DeKeyzer’s disappearance.
Now police have made a gruesome discovery in a Plymouth Township storage unit, the Travel Trailer Storage Facility, on Ann Arbor Road. While serving a search warrant on Thursday, police found a woman’s body inside a 55-gallon blue plastic drum that was filled with sand, sealed with cement and wrapped in plastic. The individual inside the 55 gallon drum is believed to be that of missing Theresa DeKeyzer. Although, authorities used tattoos, jewelry and clothing to help identify the body, they are awaiting the Wayne County medical examiners confirmation for a positive identification.
Dental records will be examined over the weekend to determine if a decomposed body found in a 55-gallon plastic drum is that of a missing Macomb County woman.
Warren Police Commissioner Jere Green tells The Associated Press Friday that there are “strong indications” the victim may be 22-year-old Theresa DeKeyzer.
“It was quite disturbing to see a 22-year-old young gal stuffed in a 55-gallon drum and cement poured over her in the fetal position,” Green told WWJ’s Mike Campbell.
The Wayne County medical examiner’s office says Friday that autopsy results are pending.
Warren police were executing a search warrant Thursday at the Travel Trailer Storage Facility, on Ann Arbor Road, when they found a woman’s body inside a 55-gallon blue plastic drum that was filled with sand, sealed with cement and wrapped in plastic. The barrel was apparently bolted to the floor of a small utility trailer at the facility.
The Detroit News: The storage lot was rented by a man nine days after the Warren woman disappeared.
The storage lot where Theresa DeKeyzer’s body was discovered Friday in a concrete-capped barrel was rented by a man nine days after the Warren woman disappeared.
Doris Temple, manager of Travel Trailer Storage on Ann Arbor Road in Plymouth Township, wouldn’t identify the man who rented the space, citing privacy.
