What a Coincidence, Another Hard Drive Crash … This Time It’s April Sands, a Former Employee at the Federal Election Commission who Resigned After Admitting to Violating the Hatch Act Promoting Obama’s Re-election in 2012 .
HMM, ANOTHER CONVENIENT HARD DRIVE CRASH, I AM STARTING TO SENSE A PATTERN … AND LOW AND BEHOLD A LINK TO LOIS LERNER …
Democrat playbook, page 7, paragraph 2, subsections 6: When caught committing a crime and perpetrating a fraud upon the American people, destroy your hard drive.
April Sands was a Federal Election Commission lawyer before she resigned earlier this year and accepted a ban on holding government jobs until 2016. Sands resigned after admitting to violating The Hatch Act, which prohibits government workers from advocating for candidates while on the job. Just curious, is there any government agency that did not violate the Hatch Act and promote Obama’s 2012 reelection? However, Sands escaped prosecution as her computer hard drive “mysteriously” crashed and was recycled by the FEC before any evidence could be recovered. Hmm, haven’t we heard this one before? As former NY Yankee MLB great Yogi Bearra would say, “it’s deja vu all over again”. Can you say Lois Lerner? Funny Lois Lerner’s name is mentioned as Lerner, who has a case of her own missing emails and hard drive crash was Sands’ supervisor until 2001. you just can’t make this stuff up.
Just curious, is there any governmental agency that backs up data?
It’s becoming very evident that the 2012 presidential election may have been the greatest case of voter fraud ever in American history. Sorry, just one too many coincidences.
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Monday made yet another request to the federal government for details about a crashed hard drive that may have contained information allowing criminal charges to be brought against a federal official.
Issa’s newest letter concerns the hard drive of April Sands, a former employee at the Federal Election Commission who resigned in the spring after admitting to violations of the Hatch Act. That law puts restrictions on the ability of government officials to conduct political activities while on the job, or from government offices.
Issa noted that while Sands admitted to violating the law, the FEC just recently told Congress that it could not recover her hard drive, which made it impossible to seek criminal charges against her.
“Recent information obtained by the committee suggests that the FEC OIG could not pursue criminal prosecution for the misconduct because the attorney’s hard drive had been recycled by the FEC,” Issa’s letter said.
As a result, Issa asked the FEC to provide information to his committee by July 28. That includes all documents related to the hard drive loss, and documents detailing the FEC’s practices for retaining information on computers.
The FEC is an independent agency, but Sands’ emails clearly indicated she favored Obama’s re-election in 2012. Before the election, she tweeted things like:
“Our #POTUS’s birthday is August 4. He’ll be 51. I’m donating at least $51 to give him the best birthday present ever: a second term.” In another tweet, she said anyone supporting Republicans is her “enemy.”
I guess this is just another phony scandal.
UPDATE I: More from Town Hall, It sounds like they have found there to be one too many coincidences as well …. Lerner Associate: “I Don’t Understand How Anyone But Straight White Men Can Vote Republican”
Which brings us to the case of April Sands, an employee at the Federal Elections Commission (FEC), who struck a deal with the agency’s Inspector General to avoid criminal charges related to running afoul of the Hatch Act on numerous occasions. She has openly confessed to breaching federal law as part of her effective plea bargain, but investigators were unable to probe a potential goldmine of incriminating activity: Her email. Why? You guessed it; her hard drive crashed, supposedly wiping out her email records, and resulting in the FEC recycling (i.e., destroying) the hard drive. Sounds familiar. Did I mention that Ms. Sands worked under Lois Lerner when Lerner served as the agency’s Associate General Counsel for Enforcement? Lots of coincidences and similarities, no?
UPDATE II: Interview with Lou Dobbs discussing the amazing coincidences of corrupt government employee hard drive crashes.
HOW WILL THE IRS REACT TO BEING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF A FEDERAL DEMAND?
Judge Emmet Sullivan of the U.S. District Court in Washington has ordered the IRS to explain under oath how former IRS employee Lois Lerner’s emails went missing. Do you mean a federal judge will not except the excuse, that the dog ate my hard drive? Imagine that, Lois Lerner warned IRS employee’s what they put in their emails and then her’s miraculously disappeared. Yup, not a smidgen of corruption here.
A federal judge on Thursday ordered the IRS to detail under oath how some of former agency official Lois Lerner’s emails went missing, as well as any potential methods for recovering them.
Judge Emmet Sullivan of the U.S. District Court in Washington gave the Internal Revenue Service exactly a month — until Aug. 10 — to file a report, which he demanded as part of a lawsuit from a conservative watchdog, Judicial Watch, against the agency.
Judicial Watch is seeking a wide range of documents from the IRS, including Lerner’s emails, as part of a Freedom of Information Act request. It has complained that the IRS didn’t tell it that the agency couldn’t recover all of Lerner’s emails from 2009 to 2011.
Sullivan cast his ruling as a compromise, and a potential way for Judicial Watch to get answers without the court wading any deeper into the matter. Judicial Watch had asked the court to potentially compel IRS officials to testify about the lost emails, through a process called limited discovery.
Hmm … Appears that Lois Lerner May Have Printed Out Some Emails Afterall As GOP Cries Foul That She Attempted to Circumvent Internal Communications from Congress
Oh what a tangled web we weave, when we practice to deceive. Funny thing about lies, its hard to keep them straight all of the time.
Not only have we now learned that former IRS employee Lois Lerner did print out some emails after all, she also appears to have made a concerted effort to intentionally bypass retention policies in order to keep information from Congress. Imagine that. From The Politico comes, Lois Lerner cautioned against email chatter amid lawmaker probes.
Ask yourself, why would some ask such a question as to whether OCS messages are saved?
Former IRS official Lois Lerner said she warned her colleagues to be careful about what they write in emails amid congressional inquiries, according to new emails released by House Oversight Republicans.
She also asked whether the IRS’s internal messaging system could be searched, in the same email to an IRS colleague. It was sent April 9, 2013, less than two weeks after the IRS inspector general that unearthed the tea party targeting practice shared a draft report with the agency.
“I was cautioning folks about email and how we have had several occasions where Congress has asked for emails and there has been an electronic search for responsive emails — so we need to be cautious about what we say in emails,” she wrote to Maria Hooke, the director of business systems planning for the tax-exempt division. “Someone asked if OCS conversations were also searchable — I don’t know. … Do you know?”
59% Blame Barack Obama For Crisis of Flood Of Child Border Crossings & 65% Believe Lost IRS Emails Are Attempt by Obama Administration to “Hide Evidence”
Obama can’t blame GWB for this one as the public points the finger directly at The One … More damning poll numbers for Barack Obama.
It’s only taken six failed years but the American people are finally holding Barack Obama accountable for his actions and scandals. According to a recent IBD/TIPP Poll released Monday, “We the People” say that Obama is directly responsible for the crisis on the US-Mexican border as thousands of children attempt to cross the border, the lost IRS emails are part of a greater Obama administration cover up and Obama’s premature withdraw from Iraq has caused the current state of unstable affairs. By a 59% to 39% margin, Americans believe that Barack Obama’s policies lead directly to the child humanitarian crisis on our Southern border.Now that Obama has created the crisis, he now wants to appear like he is going to come to the rescue.
Also, by an overwhelming 65% to 27%, Americans believe that the lost IRS emails are part of an Obama administration cover-up. This would mean that a large majority of Americans believe criminal activity to place to cover up IRS-gate. This is consistent with two other polls, a Rasmussen poll that stated 71% believed the lost emails were part of a cover up and a Fox News poll that revealed that 76% believe the IRS intentionally lost the emails.
We don’t have two rogue agents at the IRS, we have a rogue Obama presidency.
The public largely blames President Obama for the flood of children who have poured over the border in recent weeks, creating a growing humanitarian crisis, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll released Monday.
The late June survey found that the public largely blames Obama policies for the crisis in Iraq and believes the lost IRS emails are an administration effort to cover up wrongdoing at the agency.
The poll found that 59% of those closely following the immigration crisis agree that “current administration policies and lack of focus on securing the border” are behind the human tide of illegal crossings. Six in 10 say that the children should be ordered to leave the country. (The survey found that 73% of Americans are following this story closely.)
As American Power says … The American People are not going to take it anymore!!! Amen. It is about time the American people have woke up and noticed that Obama is a community agitator, an abject failure, inept and corrupt. As Dee Snyder and Twisted Sister sang in the 1980′s … ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It.’
“We’re Not Gonna Take It”
OH WE’RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT
NO, WE AIN’T GONNA TAKE IT
OH WE’RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE
WE’VE GOT THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE AND
THERE AIN’T NO WAY WE’LL LOSE IT
THIS IS OUR LIFE, THIS IS OUR SONG
WE’LL FIGHT THE POWERS THAT BE JUST
DON’T PICK OUR DESTINY ‘CAUSE
YOU DON’T KNOW US, YOU DON’T BELONG
OH WE’RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT
NO, WE AIN’T GONNA TAKE IT
OH WE’RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE
OH YOU’RE SO CONDESCENDING
YOUR GALL IS NEVER ENDING
WE DON’T WANT NOTHIN’, NOT A THING FROM YOU
YOUR LIFE IS TRITE AND JADED
BORING AND CONFISCATED
IF THAT’S YOUR BEST, YOUR BEST WON’T DO
Rasmussen: 71% of Voters Believe the IRS Deliberately Destroyed E-mails to Hide Guilt of Criminal Activity
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, a remarkably 71% of voters believe that the IRS deliberately and willfully destroyed emails related to IRS-gate and the targeting of Tea Party and other conservative groups to hide evidence of criminal activity. Only 22% believe the IRS did not break the law, while 4% were undecided. It is fair to say that this polling is a resounding condemnation against the IRS that crosses all political parties. How bad is it when a government agency like the IRS is believed to play partisan politics and cannot be trusted?
Think about this, more than 7 in 10 individuals surveyed believe that the IRS committed a criminal activity in destruction of property and obstruction of justice to hide the guilt of their even greater criminal activity as a Democrat party ignores it and Barack Obama calls it a phoney scandal. This should be chilling for all Americans.
Most voters think it’s likely the IRS deliberately destroyed e-mails about its investigations of Tea Party and other conservative groups to hide its criminal behavior. Two-out-of-three now believe IRS employees involved in these investigations should be jailed or fired, and most suspect the agency of targeting other political opponents of the Obama administration.
As we are reminded by Real Clear Politics, a recent Fox News poll found similar results, 76% of voters surveyed believed that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails were deliberately destroyed. The distrust in the IRS was spread across all parties, including 90% of Republicans, 74% of Independents and 63% of Democrats. Only 12% of respondents believe the emails were accidently destroyed.
It gets better, these are the folks in charge of enforcing Obamacare. How’s that “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for ya America?
Fox News Poll: 76% of Voters Think the IRS Deliberately Destroyed Lois Lerner Emails … Just 12% Believe It Was an Accident
DAMNING OBAMA/IRS POLLING …
According to the most recent FOX News poll, an amazing 76% of voters believe that the Internal Revenue Service deliberately and purposely destroyed Lois Lerner’s emails. Only 12% believe in the Tooth Fairy and think it was an accident. Another 12% are unsure and are too bust watching “Here Cones Honey Boo Boo”. The 76% of those who believe the IRS acted deliberately its includes 74% of Independents and an incredible 63% of Democrats. What does this mean? As much as the White House has called IRS-gate a phony scandal and a GOP conspiracy, the American people are not buying it. “We the People” think that it was deliberate and a crime was committed and there was a purposeful destruction of property.
Full poll can be read HERE.
PHONY CONSPIRACY, EH?
The consensus is: it’s no accident. More than three-quarters of voters — 76 percent — think the emails missing from the account of Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official at the center of the scandal over targeting of conservative groups, were deliberately destroyed.
That suspicion is shared across party lines, albeit to varying degrees. An overwhelming 90 percent of Republicans think the emails were intentionally destroyed, as do 74 percent of independents and 63 percent of Democrats.
Furthermore, Democrats and Barack Obama have tried their best, along with the lap dog liberal media to make this scandal go away. Partisan Democrats have called the investigation, silly, political and a waste of time. The liberal MSM has pretty much refused to cover the story. However, according to the FOX News poll, 74% think that Congress should continue to investigate the IRS in their targeting of conservative and Tea Party non-profit groups. This includes 65% of Independents and 66% of Democrats.
This latest wrinkle in the IRS targeting of certain groups, including hundreds with “Tea Party” in their name, has increased voter interest in Congress investigating the matter.
Some 74 percent of voters now say lawmakers should investigate the IRS “until someone is held accountable,” up from 67 percent who felt that way in April. That includes 66 percent of Democrats.
Finally, a resounding majority do not believe Barack Obama when he says that he learned about such scandals like IRS-gate, the VA scandal, Fast & Furious and the plethora of other scandals when the president says he learned about it from the media. What does this tell us? The American people think Obama is a liar.
Archivist of the U.S. David Ferriero Testifies to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Lois Lerner Lost Emails … ” IRS Didn’t Follow the Law “
IMAGINE THAT, THE OBAMA IRS BROKE THE LAW …
On Tuesday, David Ferriero, the top United States archivist of federal records, told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that the IRS broke the law when it failed to report loss of emails. David S. Ferriero, the chief archivist at the National Archives said, “In accordance with the Federal Records Act, when an agency becomes aware of an incident of unauthorized destruction, they must report the incident to us.” Ferriero told the House Oversight Committee that federal agencies are supposed to report whenever their records are destroyed or even accidentally deleted; however, he stated that nobody told the National Archives after emails from IRS official Lois Lerner vanished after a computer failure in 2011. Imagine that? How about the six others whose computers miraculously crashed as well? Were they reported?
The top U.S. official in charge of archiving federal records testified Tuesday that the IRS ran afoul of the law by neglecting to tell his office that a trove of emails from the woman at the center of the targeting scandal disappeared after an apparent hard drive crash.
Archivist of the U.S. David Ferriero, speaking before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, made clear that federal agencies are supposed to report whenever their records are destroyed or even accidentally deleted. But he said that after emails from embattled IRS official Lois Lerner vanished after a computer failure in 2011, nobody told the National Archives.
“They did not follow the law,” Ferriero said.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio Punishes Inmates with Diet of “Bread and Water” After They Desecrated the American Flags Inside Jail Cells
WAY TO GO JOE … MOVE OVER WEIGHT-WATCHERS, NUTRI-SYSTEM AND THE PALEO DIET … SAY HELLO TO THE SHERIFF JOE DIET.
Add yet another reason why we love Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, desecrated the American flag and face the wrath of Joe. According to NBC News, Sheriff Joe Arpaio punished 38 inmates who desecrated the American flags recently put into their jail cells with a diet of “bread and water”. It wasn’t really bread, it was actually a baked loaf of ground-up fruits, vegetables, milk powder, dough and other ingredients and, though it fulfills nutritional requirements. Sounds yummy!!! You gotta love this guy, and with all due respect to NBC, Joe is not controversial, Joe is a patriot living in a screwed up PC world where some how those who commit crimes against the general public are supposed to be treated with the respect, that they cannot provide others. Sheriff Joe said, “I run a patriotic jail system. This is not a First Amendment situation. When they tamper with the flag, they are tampering with government property.”
Controversial Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio says 38 inmates have rebelled against his new policy of putting American flags in jail cells, desecrating the Stars and Stripes and earning them what he calls a diet of “bread and water.”
The regimen actually is a baked loaf of ground-up fruits, vegetables, milk powder, dough and other ingredients and, though it fulfills nutritional requirements, is decidedly unappetizing.
Arpaio said that any inmate who damages a flag will be eating the so-called nutra-loaf — without utensils — for two weeks.
“I run a patriotic jail system,” said Arpaio. “I am somewhat disappointed that 38 inmates recently desecrated the flags, tearing them up and writing on them and throwing them in the toilet.”
Of course the ACLU will come up with some ridiculous rebuttal to this to hoe the criminals civil right were violated.
Punk teens trash Kings Plaza Shopping Mall in Mill Basin in Brooklyn, New York as chaos incurs as security and police try to restore order. What is going on in our society that these kind of flash mobs causing violence, damage and disorder continue to occur? But then again we are told that no such thing as the “knockout game” exists, that is of course unless it is white on black crime. The American Thinker has a unique opinion on all of this chaos and violence that we are now at the mercy of the Visigoths and that they are on the loose and barbarians are running amok among us. Sadly, they seem to be correct.
Sources say the incident may have been sparked by a girl wearing a shirt with a picture and derogatory comment about another girl.
The problem then escalated on social media with the girls agreeing to meet up at the mall.
“They just started fighting, throwing stuff off balconies,” said Lequan Jackson, a Macy’s employee, “I was just like I hope they don’t come to my store.”
Lequan Jackson works at Macy’s and watched as security guards quickly notified police.
But it took several hours to clear out the mall and restore order.
A wild flash mob stormed and trashed a Brooklyn mall, causing so much chaos that the shopping center was forced to close during post-Christmas sales, sources said Friday.
More than 400 crazed teens — who mistakenly thought the rapper Fabolous would perform — erupted into brawls all over Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Mill Basin on Thursday at 5 p.m., sources said.
The troublemakers looted and ransacked several stores as panicked shoppers ran for the exits and clerks scrambled to pull down metal gates.
Some of the teens staged a game of “knockout” on the top floor — and one may have been carrying a gun, sources said.
Then in typical, look at my, bragging … they went to Facebook.
Some of the teens — who had planned the rowdy meet-up on social media — later took to Facebook to brag about it.
“[Kings Plaza] was on tilt today but n-ggas wasn’t catching me,” Ray Ray Sextana posted on Facebook.
Another teen, Mark Wallace, posted, “S–t was crazy at Kings Plaza. So the security started shutting down the mall and kicking all teens out but it was so much of us they couldn’t get control.”
He added,“F–ked up my middle finger tryna fight them bitch ass security guards.”
Police Release New VIDEO of San Jose Walmart Rampage that Occurred March 2013 … Haamid Zaid Arrested and Faces Two Counts of Attempted Murder
San Jose police release a new video of Haamid Zaid plowing his car through a Walmart. The incident occurred in March 2013. Haamid Zaid crashed his vehicle through the Walmart store and then got out and started attacking customers with a metal club. Hmm, was this a hate crime or jihad? Haamid Zaid did this stunt on Easter Sunday. It appears that this dude has a history of doing this as ABC KGO-TV reports, Haamid Zaid also drove a silver Lexus right through the double glass doors of a Chevron gas station and convenience store on Capitol Expressway last December.
The incident happened in March 2013 at the Walmart store on Story Road. The video shows people running for safety as a car rips through the store.
The driver got out and started attacking customers with a metal club until they subdued him.
Police are now trying to bolster their case against the man they arrested — Haamid Zaid. Zaid faces 12 counts including two attempted murder charges.
San Jose Police released surveillance video showing a red Oldsmobile Cutlass crashing through the front door of a Walmart in East San Jose off of Story Road about nine months ago, causing a ruckus on Easter Sunday, hoping the public can help identify witnesses and victims.
The footage, released on Dec. 18, showed the driver, 33-year-old Haamid Zaid, slam the vehicle through the front of the store, reverse, and crash again going further into the store.
Last December, Zaid also allegedly rammed his car through the front window of a convenient store on the Capitol Auto Mall, first reported by NBC Bay Area, which obtained exclusive video of that crash.
Police say anyone with information regarding the Walmart crash should call San Jose police department’s Assaults Unit at (408) 277-4161, or to call anonymously to Silicon Valley Crimestoppers at (408) 947-STOP(7867). They can also visit http://www.tipsubmit.org/ and possibly be eligible for a reward.
