Charles Krauthammer Says IRS Scandal Could Be a “Fatal Problem” for Barack Obama … Second Article of Impeachment of Nixon/Watergate was Abuse of IRS
IRS Scandal Could Be a “Fatal Problem” for Barack Obama …
Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer told Sean Hannity that if the White House had any connection with the IRS scandal, it will be a ‘Fatal Problem’ for President Barack Obama. Krauthammer called the IRS situation “the one scandal that people have a visceral sense about,” it’s the one U.S. institution, besides the military, that can do very serious harm. Krauthammer is correct and the American people are outraged that the IRS, already seen in a bad light by most Americans, now have lost all trust in the government agency that appears to have to ability to act without any rules or over-sight. On Friday during House hearings on the IRS scandal, Rep. Mike Kelly blasted the IRS for their vindictive, partisan ways and stated, “This confirms that the IRS can do anything they want, anytime they want, to anyone they want.” Charles Krauthammer went on to say that the IRS going after conservative groups based on their politics is “a violation that everybody, left or right, understands.” Earlier in the week, Krauthammer commented on President Obama’s “Clintonian” response to the media’s question as to whether anyone in the White House knew about the scandal and corruption that was taking place in the IRS. President Obama dodged the question by saying, “I can assure you that I certainly did not know anything about the IG report before the IG report had been leaked through the press.” Which had nothing to do with the question.
Krauthammer stated, “The one issue that can fell a presidency is the corruption of the IRS coming from on high.” Hannity pointed to the denials of political targeting by the former head of the IRS when such targeting was going on, and both he and Krauthammer suspected someone will be fired over this in the future.
Krauthammer also said that Benghazi hasn’t gotten more attention is because of the lack of media coverage and the complexity of the scandal that has not fully resonated with the public.
Using the powers of the office of President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in disregard of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has repeatedly engaged in conduct violating the constitutional rights of citizens, impairing the due and proper administration of justice and the conduct of lawful inquiries, or contravening the laws governing agencies of the executive branch and the purposed of these agencies.
This conduct has included one or more of the following: 1.He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavored to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposed not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.
Charles Krauthammer Shreds Obama … President Obama Has Been Parsing Words In a Way That Makes Clinton Look Unsophisticated
Obama, it all depends on what is, is … or iRs, is.
Tonight on Special Report, Charles Krauthammer shredded Barack Obama with a thoughtful, professional and intellectual analysis of President Obama’s parsing of words that makes former President Bill Clinton look unsophisticated. Krauthammer is 100% correct, the words that Obama used during his feigned outrage with the IRS scandal made anyone who was actually paying attention and listening take notice. Krauthammer said Obama was acting more “Clintonian” than “Nixonian”. Obama did not say that he did not know about the IRS actions, he said he didn’t know about the IG report. However, the most damning critique may have been when Krauthammer stated, “if his own counsel learns about this 3 weeks before, how can the counsel … his counsel hears about this and doesn’t tell the president for three weeks about what is obviously a massive scandal?”
“He says I didn’t know about the IG report. Well if he didn’t know about any of this, never heard any complaints, then he would have said I don’t know anything about this at all. The IG is a peculiar answer by a guy who I have now seen for weeks now, he and his spokesman have been parsing words in a way that make Clinton look unsophisticated.”
The fact of the matter is that Barack Obama has to contort the language in such a manner because if he told the truth and simple said the obvious … he would be impeached.
Charles Krauthammer Tells FOX Special Report Panel that President Barack Obama Has Lost the Main Gun Control Battle and “All He Wants Now is the Money.”
File this one under, why is everyone so shocked, surprised and quiet … Obama has always been about the “money” and the “issue,” not solving any problems.
Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer rendered his fellow Fox News panelists on ‘Special Report’ momentarily speechless after he said that President Barack Obama had lost the main gun control battle and “all he wants now is the money”. Just curious, what did Krauthammer say that was so shocking? Has even Fox News become that liberal? I mean we all know Chris Wallace is a lib, but why wouldn’t the other panelists believe Obama was just in it for the money? For a socialist, he does like the $’s that are brought in on issues rather than actually solving America’s problems.
From The Blaze:
“All he wants now is the money,” Krauthammer said to several seconds of total silence.
“You don’t really mean that,” host Chris Wallace finally broke in.
“He’s lost on gun control,” Krauthammer insisted, saying that even if the bill includes expanded background checks — the “last item standing” — it’s “not going to make any difference.”
“Knowing all that, he is out there now exploring it as an issue. He is not going to get the solution he wanted, so he’ll make an issue. And that’s the way he operates. He does it on immigration. He does it on a lot of stuff. If you can’t win on a solution or get your way, you turn it into cash. He is excellent at turning stuff into cash.”
The fact of the matter is that no one should be shocked at what Obama does anymore.
