Almost Half of Americans Say Barack Obama Untruthful About IRS … 53% of Political Independents Say Obama’s Explanation Learned of IRS Scandal from Media Reports is Untrue
WATERGATE = IRS-GATE. AMERICA LOSING TRUST IN OBAMA, THE SO-CALLED MOST TRANSPARENT PRESIDENT EVER.
Hey America, How’s the “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for ya?
The American people are more and more starting to lose trust in Barack Obama and his comment that he did not know about the IRS scandal that saw the Internal Revenue Service purposely target conservative and Tea Party organizations to gain non-profit stratus. As a recent Bloomberg poll showed, 47% of Americans say they don’t believe Obama, as compared with 40% who say he is being truthful. Meanwhile, 53% do not believe Obana is being truthful on IRS-gate. As stated by poll respondent June Wilshusen, a 50 year old of Yuma, Colorado, political independent and a stay-at-home wife married to a machinist said, “How could he not know? I think any president has to know what’s going on with our government. I think they’re very aware of the IRS.”
What, me lie?
Almost half of Americans say President Barack Obama isn’t telling the truth when he says he didn’t know the Internal Revenue Service was giving extra scrutiny to the applications of small government groups seeking tax-exempt status.
Forty-seven percent of Americans say they don’t believe Obama compared with 40 percent who say he is being truthful, according to a Bloomberg National Poll of 1,002 adults conducted May 31 through June 3.
More than half of political independents — 53 percent — say Obama’s explanation that he learned it from media reports is untrue, while 34 percent say they believe him.
WE THE PEOPLE … AMERICA WAKE UP!!!
Karen Kenney of the San Fernando Valley Patriots testifies before the House Ways and Means Congressional investigation on the mistreatment of Tea Party affiliated groups by the IRS. Hear more from “We the People” who were purposely and willfully targeted by the IRS because they dare try to express their US Constitutional rights of free speech. Want to hear the eloquence of liberty and what Our Founding Fathers intended? Watch the video below. No finer words may not have been spohken in the House chambers in years and it took an average citizen to do it, “This dialogue is about the jackboot of tyranny upon the field of our Founding documents. To whisper the letters I-R-S strikes a shrill note on Main St., USA, but when this behemoth tramples upon America’s grassroots, few hear the snapping sounds.”
Karen Kenney of the San Fernando Valley Patriots
Entire text can be read HERE.
John Adams knew that, “Facts are stubborn things.” In this District, facts are hidden under the mantle of office. They get used as tools or weapons, But facts wait for us. We must seek them with the lamp of truth And put them into words. But you and I speak different languages in this Republic.
You speak the language of Power: the pen, purse or gavel. I speak grassroots American, the language of Liberty through Providence, property and civic virtue. We seldom speak together frankly about the rule of law even when it is ignored or broken, but now is such a time.
I have a story that bridges the distance between my state of California and this Capitol. What I say here, must be said here. Pilgrims brought to this continent a lamp of Liberty, guided Here by the pursuit of Life within the words of Moses and Christ. They persevered for righteous freedom.
We sit here in the shadows of Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln. We visit here memorials to those who fell in service to country. They persevered for righteous power. The spirit of patriots living and dead grants me the right to be here. It is my duty as an American citizen to speak here today.
The voice of this Republic resides in our citizens, not in the tongue of government. More must grasp that self-evident truth.
This dialogue is about the jackboot of tyranny upon the field of our Founding documents. To whisper the letters I-R-S strikes a shrill note on Main St., USA, but when this behemoth tramples upon America’s grassroots, few hear the snapping sounds.
Now, more people listen, but few who know the truth speak.

Another Obamaination … U.N. Ambassador Rice, who Helped Deceived America on Beghazi Attack Promoted to National Security Adviser for Being Good Little Obama Soldier
THE SICK JOKE CONTINUES ON WE THE PEOPLE … OBAMA TRULY IS NOTHING MORE THAN A COMMUNITY AGITATOR.
Should we really be surprised? UN Ambassador Susan Rice to replace Tom Donilon in the Top National Security post. The woman who went out on five Sunday talk shows and put forth false talking points for Barack Obama in the wake of the Benghazi consulate attacks that left four Americans dead has been promoted. WHAT A JOKE. This is how Obama handles scandals. He promotes those “good little soldiers” who do his bidding. So this is how the president tries to put Benghazi behind him? Defiant to the end. Obama is not a leader, he is a thin skinned individual who has no business being president.
Benghazi Whistle-Blower Witness Greg Hicks Responds to Questions from Rep Trey Goudy (SC-R): “I Was Stunned. My Jaw Dropped. I Was Embarrassed” After Susan Rice TV Appearance on 5 Sunday Talk Shows
So this is what Barack Obama in his infinite wisdom thinks should be promoted. And you really think he will punish those in the IRS that did his bidding against the Tea Party and helped him win reelection?
Remember back when, we asked … Will Susan Rice be Obama’s New National Security Adviser after Failed Sec. of State Bid … What About Benghazi? Guess what, the sick answer is, she is.
In a major shakeup of President Obama’s foreign-policy inner circle, Tom Donilon, the national security adviser, is resigning and will be replaced by Susan E. Rice, the American ambassador to the United Nations, White House officials said late Tuesday.
The appointment, which Mr. Obama plans to make on Wednesday afternoon, puts Ms. Rice, 48, an outspoken diplomat and a close political ally, at the heart of the administration’s foreign-policy apparatus.
It is also a defiant gesture to Republicans who harshly criticized Ms. Rice for presenting an erroneous account of the deadly attacks on the American mission in Benghazi, Libya. The post of national security adviser, while powerful, does not require Senate confirmation.
Obama knew that Rice could not win confirmationto be Secretary of State, so she gets slotted into this position instead. Guess what, no Senate confirmation required. Obama is a spiteful individual, nothing more. No one would put such a lightening rod in place, unless they were just looking to be an SOB. This will have to bring the Benghazi faux talking points up again to the American attention. Is this Obama’s answer to defelct attention away from the IRS scandal or is this just Obama acting small and poking the eyes of Republicans again?
Much more at Legal Insurrection.
2016 cannot come soon enough!
Hear from WE THE PEOPLE … Wetumpka Tea Party Activist Becky Gerritson Testifies at Hearing on IRS Abuse Scandal … We Should All be Weeping
Not only did Wetumpka Tea Party Activist Becky Gerritson weep during her testimony during the House hearings yesterday on the IRS abuse scandal, Our Founding Father wept as well.
ALL AMERICAN SHOULD WATCH THE FOLLOWING VIDEO AND UNDERSTAND JUST WHAT GOVERNMENT TYRANNY CAN DO TO AVERAGE AMERICANS … Becky Gerritson of the Wetumpka Tea Party testified yesterday during the House hearings on the IRS abuse scandal and nailed it. Did she make some grandiose political speech promising Americans free healthcare, or that she would take care of them or lecture us on how to live? NO! Becky Gerritson delivered an emotional and powerful testimony at the House Ways and Means committee hearing on IRS abuse reminding our representative government has failed us and that you have forgotten your place. Gerritson began crying at one point while telling her story on how her group was targeted, harassed and abused by the IRS.
We wanted to give ordinary citizens the chance to speak their concerns. Our event had no party affiliation. I could not tell you if the attendees were Republicans. Democrats or Independents. It didn’t matter, the only political notion that was expressed was one that we collectively felt, that our representative government had failed us. That was the birth of the Wetumpka Tea Party. [...] In Wetumpka, we are patriotic Americans, we peacefully assemble, we petition our government, we exercise the rights to free speech. And we do not understand why out government tried to stop us. I am not here as a surf or vassal. I am not begging my lords for mercy. I am a born free, American woman, wife mother and citizen and I am telling my government, YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN YOUR PLACE! Its not your responsibility to look after my well being and to monitor my speech.
The IRS targeted the Wetumpka Tea Party to stifle “free speech”.
More from Fox News Insider.
She called the IRS’ demands a “willful act of intimidation to discourage a point of view” and “un-American.”
Gerritson again became choked up as she concluded her statement, saying, “I’m not interested in scoring political points. I want to preserve and protect the America that I grew up in. The America that people crossed oceans and risked their lives to become a part of, and I’m terrified it’s slipping away. Thank you very much.”

WE THE PEOPLE ARE HEARD TODAY ON CAPITAL HILL …
Conservative groups and Tea Party organization who have been Unconstitutionally targeted by the IRS will let their voices be heard on Capitol Hill today. Six conservative groups are scheduled to tell lawmaker how they were unfairly and illegally targeted by the IRS in preventing them from becoming non-profit organizations in the run up to the 2012 presidential election. Heck, according to some, the heinous, bullying tactics of the IRS are still going on today, even after this scandal has been uncovered. America, take a good look what tyranny looks like.
Conservative groups who were targeted by the Internal Revenue Service are getting their say on Capitol Hill just as the details of another IRS controversy are being made public.
The leaders of six conservative groups were scheduled to tell lawmakers Tuesday about their mistreatment at the hands of IRS agents. Several of the groups say their applications for tax-exempt status were delayed while agents asked intrusive questions that the IRS has since acknowledged were inappropriate. One group, the National Organization for Marriage, says the IRS publicly disclosed confidential information about donors.
Leaders of the groups were scheduled to testify before the House Ways and Means Committee. Ways and Means is one of three congressional committees investigating the IRS’ treatment of such groups. The Justice Department is conducting a criminal investigation.
The Gateway Pundit has the witness list:
- Mr. John Eastman: Chairman, National Organization for Marriage
- Ms. Diane Belsom: Laurens County Tea Party
- Ms. Becky Gerritson: Wetumpka Tea Party
- Ms. Karen Kenny: San Fernando Valley Patriots
- Mr. Kevin Kookogey: Founder and President, Linchpins of Liberty
- Ms. Sue Martinek: Coalition for Life of Iowa
Former IRS Commissioner Douglass Shulman’s Wife Works for Liberal Group, Public Campaign, Fighting Open Campaign Spending
Hmm, this is just a coincidence I guess, you just can’t make this stuff up.
Former Internal Revenue Service commissioner Douglas Shulman, the individual who made 157 trips to the White House, when the IRS was targeting conservative and Tea Party non-profit groups, is married to Susan L. Anderson, a senior program advisor for the Lefty organization, Public Campaign. Of all things, the liberal group fights against open campaign spending of conservatives, the very thing that the IRS scandal was preventing by stalling conservative and Tea Party non-profits. Coincidence, what about conflict of interest?
The IRS is under fire for improperly scrutinizing the tax-exempt nonprofit status of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012, demanding conservative training materials, personal information on conservative college interns and even the content of religious groups’ prayers. IRS supporters have defended the beleaguered agency by railing against outside spending and special interest money supposedly pumped into the 2012 campaign by conservative benefactors.
One of those defenders is the group of which Shulman’s spouse is an executive.
Shulman’s wife Susan L. Anderson is the senior program advisor for the Washington-based nonprofit organization Public Campaign, which claims that it “is laying the foundation for reform by working with a broad range of organizations, including local community groups, around the country that are fighting for change and national organizations whose members are not fairly represented under the current campaign finance system.”
Earlier this month, when news broke of the targeting scandal broke, Public Campaign president and CEO Nick Nyhart belittled the concerns of disenfranchised conservatives.
And They’re Singing Like Canaries … US Rep. Darrell Issa (CA-R) on CNN’s State of the Union, Cincinnati IRS employees say direction came from Washington
IRSGATE: GOING ROGUE … ROGUE IRS EMPLOYEES SINGING LIKE CANARIES …
As Nancy Grace would say, BOMBSHELL TONIGHT OR TODAY, in this case. As reports at The Daily Mail, interviews with IRS employees have established that the Washington, D.C. headquarters of the Internal Revenue Service was engaged in targeting Tea Party groups and other conservative organizations for unfair levels of scrutiny when applying for tax-exempt status, as liberal organizations were fast-tracked. We are starting to see linkage from the Cincinnati IRS office where supposedly only a few rogue agents were to blame for the IRS scandal to the Washington, DC office. The dots are beginning to be connected. Hmm, according to IRS workers interviewed, their targeting began in early 2010. This is much early than we have been previously been told. Wake Up America has a partial of the Q and A of the interviews.
Rep. Darrel lssa, chairman of powerful House Committee of Oversight and Government Reform, made that startling announcement on CNN Sunday morning.
‘As late as last week,’ he said, ‘the [Obama] administration was still trying to say the [IRS targeting scandal] was from a few rogue agents in Cincinnati, when in fact the indication is that they were directly being ordered from Washington.’
A committee spokesman sent MailOnline partial transcripts of two interviews with unnamed IRS workers about the agency’s actions in early 2010, on whose testimony Issa based his bombshell statement.
One of those interviewees said it was ‘impossible’ for a few IRS agents to have orchestrated such widespread partisan targeting on their own.
The Full CNN interview with Issa and Candy Crowley can be seen below:
“As late as last week the administration’s still trying to say there’s a few rogue agents in Cincinnati when in fact the indication is they were directly being ordered from Washington.”
In an exclusive interview Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Candy Crowley, Republican Rep. Darrell Issa said interviews with workers in the Cincinnati IRS office show targeting of conservative groups was “a problem that was coordinated in all likelihood right out of Washington headquarters - and we’re getting to proving it.”
“My gut tells me that too many people knew this wrongdoing was going on before the election, and at least by some sort of convenient, benign neglect, allowed it to go on through the election,” he said. “I’m not making any allegations as to motive, that they set out to do it, but certainly people knew it was happening.”
A bipartisan group of investigators from two House committees – Ways and Means, and Government Reform and Oversight – interviewed two front-line employees from the tax-exempt office last week.
One of the employees hit back against accusations that lower-level employees were responsible for the scrutiny of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status in 2010, telling congressional investigators that the Ohio employees were being “thrown underneath the bus.”
A second “more senior” Cincinnati IRS employee said they began seeking other jobs when they were assigned to look out for applications from tea party groups, because they felt it was inappropriate.
US Rep. Darrell Issa (CA-R) Calls Jay Carney a “Paid Liar” for the Obama Administration … “This is a problem that was in all likelihood right out of Washington headquarters.”
ISSA CALLS THE IRS SCANDAL FOR WHAT IT PROBABLY IS … “coordinated in all likelihood right out of Washington headquarters”.
This morning on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ with Candy Crowley, Representative Darell Issa (CA-R) called White House spokesman Jay Carney a “PAID LIAR” for the Obama administration. OUCH!!! Well, if the paid lair fits, wear it. Issa took the gloves off and called it for what the IRS scandal looks like and is. Issa stated that “the reason why Lois Lerner tried to take the 5th is not because there is a rogue in Cincinnati. It’s because problem that was coordinated in all likelihood right out of Washington headquarters and we’re getting to prove it. We have 18 more transcribed interviews.
Crowley then tried to defend the Obama White House, as she did during the 2012 presidential debate between Romney and Obama, by saying that you don’t have the direct, definitive link, even though the front line agents believed and thought their directives came from Washington, DC. The SS Obama is taking on water and sinking.
From The Politico:
The chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee blasted White House press secretary Jay Carney on Sunday, calling him a “paid liar” who is not being truthful about the scandal at the Internal Revenue Service.
“Their paid liar, their spokesperson, the picture behind, he’s still making up things about what happened and calling this a local rogue,” Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), said on CNN’s “State of the Union,” gesturing to a graphic of Carney on the set.
“This is a problem that was in all likelihood right out of Washington headquarters,” Issa said. “We’re getting to proving it.”
Issa said the White House is not being truthful or forthcoming about the scandal.
“The president’s spokesman – spokesperson – is saying whatever’s convenient at the time. The story changes,” Issa said.
“What we have is people who have to come in and transcribe interviews. They’re saying under penalty of crimes that certain things are true. We have subpoenaed documents that would support that that they say emails went back and forth,” Issa said. “We will learn the whole truth.”
A new Quinnipiac poll shows that the scandals are starting to take an affect on Barack Obama’s job approval rating.
Drip, drip, drip. President Barack Obama is taking a hit in his job approval rating as a result of the multiply scandals that are taking place in his administration in what was supposed to be the most transparent presidency ever. Obama does not face one scandal, not two scandals, but three scandals at the same time. That is correct, Obama is not facing just one Watergate, he is facing Benghazi-gate, IRS-gate and Media-gate. Of which the scandal with the media has a part A and part B with the AP and the Fox News James Rosen scandals. Also, have we forgot Fast & Furious, how’s that Obama scandal going? According to the most recent Quinnipiac Poll, Obama’s approval rating is down to 45% approval, 49% disapproval. That is down from May when he was at 48% approval and 45% disapproval.
American voters say 76 – 17 percent, including 63 – 30 percent among Democrats, that a special prosecutor should be appointed to investigate charges the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative groups, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. President Barack Obama gets a negative 45 – 49 percent job approval rating, compared to 48 – 45 percent positive in a May 1 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University, conducted before the IRS allegations surfaced.
The president’s biggest drop is among independent voters, who give him a negative 37 – 57 percent score, compared to a negative 42 – 48 percent May 1. He gets a negative 9 – 86 percent from Republicans and a positive 87 – 8 percent from Democrats, both virtually unchanged. Women approve 49 – 45 percent while men give a negative 40 – 54 percent score. Americans are divided 49 – 47 percent on whether Obama is honest and trustworthy, down from 58 – 37 percent, the last time Quinnipiac University asked the question September 1, 2011.
With all that has happened with this president and the scandals that has further made “We the People” trust our government even less, Democrats still support this president in lock-step. I wonder how they would feel if it were they who were targeted? It is truly sad that they cannot see the bigger picture and just follow Obama blindly and drink the Kool-Aid. However, what should be eye opening to Obama and Democrats is that Independents disapprove of Obama’s job by 20%. The most damning scandal for Americans is the IRS scandal. No one likes the IRS and the fact that a government agency has such power with no oversight to destroy Americans, no matter what their political beliefs and opinions may be, is frightening.
Support for an independent prosecutor to probe the IRS issue is 88 – 6 percent among Republicans and 78 – 17 percent among independent voters, 78 – 17 percent among men and 74 – 18 percent among women.
FOX News latest poll has Obama at 45% approval and 51% disapproval.
Reuters/Ipsos latest poll has Obama at 45% approval and 50% disapproval.
Still to come … the pounding that Barack Obama is going to take on the unpopular Obamacare and the IRS’s roll in establishing and enforcing it as the IRS scandal gets deeper and deeper.
Internal Revenue Service Have Identified 88 IRS Employees who may Been Involved with Targeting Conservative Group & Tea Party
IRS … GOING ROGUE??? SOUNDS LIKE IT WAS MORE OF AN ORGANIZED EFFORT.
The following scandal is brought to you by the letters “IRS” and the number “88″.
CNN is reporting that the IRS has informed House GOP investigators that they have identified 88 IRS employees who may have documents and could be implicated in the investigation of the IRS targeting Conservative and Tea Party non-profit groups. Hmm, sounds like there was more than just a few rogue agents? This is the evidence that proves the controversy extends well beyond the mistakes by a few low level “rogue” employees, that was first said. The roof is about to blow off this scandal in a major way.
The Internal Revenue Service has told House GOP investigators they have identified 88 IRS employees who may have documents relevant to the congressional investigation into targeting of conservative groups, according to a congressional source familiar with the investigation.
The IRS asked these employees to preserve all the “responsive documents” on their computers, and it has been in the process of collecting it all to comply with congressional requests for information. The IRS missed its May 21st deadline to turn over documents to the House Ways and Means Committee.
The same source said the IRS argues it missed its deadline because of the scope of documents it is collecting.
The request for documents was a bipartisan one, but Republicans are privately preparing to seize on the fact that if nearly 90 IRS employees may have been somehow involved in this targeting, it is evidence that the controversy extends well beyond the mistakes by a few low level employees.
