Judge Jeanine Pirro Takes on the IRS, NSA, FBI, Benghazi & Susan Rice, From 6/8/13 … Our Founding Fathers Would Not Recognize the America of Today
Judge Jeanine Pirro shreds the IRS, the NSA, FBI, Susan Rice, terrorism and much, much more.
As Judge Jeanine Pirro of ‘Justice with Jeanine Pirro’ stated, Our Founding Fathers would not recognize the America of today. Judge Jeanine Pirro just shreds the IRS, their scandal of targeting conservatives or anyone who has politican dissent against Obama and the extravagant and wasteful spending of tax payers money. Pirro then goes on her rant … “These bozo’s are not even sure how much was spent on the conference because they did not keep the receipts. And they’re sorry. There lies the double standard and hypocrisy. As Judge Jeanine opines, “Really? When was the last time the IRS told the target of an audit deducting a business expense for which there was no receipt …no record, no problem bro, we’ll over look it. And don’t tell me you can’t fire these people. Is it just too much trouble, or do they know too much? Can they point higher than themselves?”
Following that Pirro then goes on to question the NSA and FBI for their collection of all the data of Americans to supposedly protect us from terrorist. Pirro was on a roll on this one. At what point is the U.S. Constitution adhered to when it comes to the surveillance of Americans? If it is needed to collect all this data, how come you could not stop the Boston Marathon bombing? America’s trust in government is at an all-time low. Has our Constitution been so damaged that it and our America is beyond repair? This is a must see video.
Security Expert Lt. Colonel Tony Shaffer NSA Program PRISM Did Not Foil 2009 NY City Subway Plot, We Were Aided by the British
As Jack Webb, Sgt. Joe Friday of Dragnet fame would say, “Just the facts ma’am” …
Before anyone decides that giving away their freedoms and liberties and shredding the U.S. Constitution is ok and having the NSA surveillance record all of our telephone conversations, emails, etc. forever is necessary to protect them against terrorism, think again. This morning on FOX News, Security Expert Lt. Colonel Tony Shaffer, from the Center for Advanced Defense Studies, stated that PRISM did not catch the 2009 New York Subway bombers, the British did. Defenders of the government’s online spying program, “PRISM” claimed on Friday that it was responsible for preventing the NY City subway bombing. Correction, it did not.
“Let me say very clearly. The 2009 thing is a MacGuffin. They did not use this program to get the 2009 bombing stopped. It was actually the British who helped us do that.
And, more importantly they missed the Major Hassan Nidal attack. He was in touch with Anwar al-Awlaki. And, we missed the Boston bombing, too. The credibility of the program is not there.” [...]
Because there s so much documentation being obtained, we can’t actually focus on what is necessary to get to the real terrorists.”
From Buzz Feed comes the following … Public Documents Contradict Claim Email Spying Foiled Terror Plot.
Defenders of the American government’s online spying program known as “PRISM” claimed Friday that the suddenly controversial secret effort had saved New York City’s subways from a 2009 terrorist plot led by a young Afghan-American, Najibullah Zazi.
But British and American legal documents from 2010 and 2011 contradict that claim, which appears to be the latest in a long line of attempts to defend secret programs by making, at best, misleading claims that they were central to stopping terror plots. While the court documents don’t exclude the possibility that PRISM was somehow employed in the Zazi case, the documents show that old-fashioned police work, not data mining, was the tool that led counterterrorism agents to arrest Zazi. The public documents confirm doubts raised by the blogger Marcy Wheeler and the AP’s Adam Goldman, and call into question a defense of PRISM first floated by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, who suggested that PRISM had stopped a key terror plot.
Sorry, but its bad enough that the NSA spying appears to be governmental over-reach, the Obama administration has ZERO CREDIBLITY to oversee such a program. We’re supposed to believe than an IRS targeting scheme against Obama’s enemies could not also happen with NSA data gathered?
The whistleblower behind the NSA surveillance of American citizens telephone records reveals himself.
As reported at The Guardian, the individual behind the NSA spying leak is 29 year old Edward Snowden. The secrets he released can be prosecuted. Edward Snowden is a former technical assistant for the CIA who also worked at the NSA for the last four years as an employee of outside contractors including Booz Allen and Dell. Obama has said no one is listening into the private phone calls of American citizens, its just data mining. Like that isn’t bad enough? Of course it was Obama who also said that the IRS was not targeting conservatives and the Tea Party for political purposes. Barack Obama says that his administration has started criminal investigations into the NSA leaks. Snowden stated in his interview with the Guardian, “I can’t in good conscience allow the U.S. government to destroy privacy, Internet freedom and basic liberties for people around the world with this massive surveillance machine they’re secretly building.”
NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden: “I don’t want to live in a society that does these sort of things”
“I could be rendered … You can’t come forward against the world’s most intelligence agency and be completely free from risk because
there’s so much powerful adversaries that no one can easily oppose. If they want to get you, they’ll get you in time.”

The individual responsible for one of the most significant leaks in US political history is Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of the defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton. Snowden has been working at the National Security Agency for the last four years as an employee of various outside contractors, including Booz Allen and Dell.
The Guardian, after several days of interviews, is revealing his identity at his request. From the moment he decided to disclose numerous top-secret documents to the public, he was determined not to opt for the protection of anonymity. “I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong,” he said.
Snowden will go down in history as one of America’s most consequential whistleblowers, alongside Daniel Ellsberg and Bradley Manning. He is responsible for handing over material from one of the world’s most secretive organisations – the NSA.
In a note accompanying the first set of documents he provided, he wrote: “I understand that I will be made to suffer for my actions,” but “I will be satisfied if the federation of secret law, unequal pardon and irresistible executive powers that rule the world that I love are revealed even for an instant.”
Snowden has certainly put himself out there. Snowden had said that he had a comfortable life, and all that has changed. Will he be prosecuted? It would appear that the Obama administration is going to go after Snowden.
In the interview, Snowden described a comfortable lifestyle and a stellar career that included a $200,000 salary from consulting company and defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, of McLean, Va., and a home in Hawaii that he shared with a girlfriend. The paper said Snowden is now staying in a hotel in Hong Kong.
Q: But isn’t there a need for surveillance to try to reduce the chances of terrorist attacks such as Boston?
A: “We have to decide why terrorism is a new threat. There has always been terrorism. Boston was a criminal act. It was not about surveillance but good, old-fashioned police work. The police are very good at what they do.”
Q: When did you decide to leak the documents?
A: “You see things that may be disturbing. When you see everything you realize that some of these things are abusive. The awareness of wrong-doing builds up. There was not one morning when I woke up [and decided this is it]. It was a natural process.
“A lot of people in 2008 voted for Obama. I did not vote for him. I voted for a third party. But I believed in Obama’s promises. I was going to disclose it [but waited because of his election]. He continued with the policies of his predecessor.”
Q: Do you think what you have done is a crime?
A: “We have seen enough criminality on the part of government. It is hypocritical to make this allegation against me. They have narrowed the public sphere of influence.”
Q: What do you think is going to happen to you?
A: “Nothing good.”
UPDATE II: Booz Allen Statement on Reports of Leaked Information.
Booz Allen can confirm that Edward Snowden, 29, has been an employee of our firm for less than 3 months, assigned to a team in Hawaii. News reports that this individual has claimed to have leaked classified information are shocking, and if accurate, this action represents a grave violation of the code of conduct and core values of our firm. We will work closely with our clients and authorities in their investigation of this matter.
IRS Agent Hofacre Didn’t Take Kindly to being Skape-Goated as DC IRS Officials Knew Two Rogue Agents Were Not Behind the Tea Party Targeting Scandal
DRIP, DRIP, DRIP, the lie that the IRS scandal was just some local rogue agents is falling apart and shown for the ridiculous lie that it was …
IRS agent Elizabeth Hofacre told House investigators that officials in Washington knew that rogue agents in the Cincinnati office were not to blame for the targeting of conservatives and that it was a Washington official was the driving force behind the targeting of Tea Party organizations. Hofacre took offence to being scapegoated and didn’t take kindly to having the entire mess dumped on the shoulders of her colleagues and herself. She stated that there were too many safeguards in place and to much reporting to allow for something like this to be done. Any body who knows anything about government contract, metrics and reporting functions would know this. Having intimate knowledge of such things, there is no way that a low level individual, local Cincinnati agents could have pull this off without direct knowledge of their superiors. It is completely implausible as all of the metrics, data and reporting funnels up to your superiors.
All roads in this scandal lead to Washington, DC which further exacerbates the fact, as to why does former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman visited the White House 157 times? Hmm? This scandal is getting closer and closer to Obama every day.
Elizabeth Hofacre, the Cincinnati staffer, said that she started receiving applications from Tea Party groups to sift through in April, 2010. Hofacre’s handling of those cases, she said, was highly influenced by Carter Hull, an IRS lawyer in Washington.
Hofacre said that she integrated questions from Hull into her follow-ups with Tea Party groups, and that Hull had to approve the letters seeking more information that she sent out to those organizations. That process, she said, was both unusual and “demeaning.”
“One of the criteria is to work independently and do research and make decisions based on your experience and education,” Hofacre said, according to transcripts reviewed by The Hill. “Whereas in this case, I had no autonomy at all through the process.”…
…“I thought it was over the top,” she added, in interviews held by investigators in both parties from the House Oversight and Ways and Means committees. “I am not sure where it came from, but it was a bit unusual.”
Hofacre told investigators that officials trying to blame the Cincinnati office were misleading the public on purpose.
“I was appalled and I was infuriated,” Hofacre said. “Because they are inaccurate, and everybody that has been making those statements should know they are inaccurate.”
The Gateway Pundit reminds us of the multitude of abuses the IRS purposely and willfully afflicted upon conservative groups and the Tae party, while allowing liberal and progressive groups to just skate by.
The truth of the matter is that most Americans (60%) believe this scandal came out of the Washington, DC IRS office and that Barack Obama is doing a terrible job in dealing with the IRS scandal, including 62% of Independents.
GOP Poll Has Massachusetts Senate Race Between Democrat Ed Markey and Republican Gabriel Gomez a Statistical Tie
As reported at The Weekly Standard, a Republican polling firm has the election for the Massachusetts US Senate race between long time Democrat Congressman Ed Markey and first time candidate Republican Gabriel Gomez a statistical tie. This Senate race is the special election to replace the seat formerly held by John Kerry, who became Secretary of State. Obviously, Republican Gabriel Gomez has a tough row to hoe in the predominately Democrat state of Massachusetts, but he represents a breath of fresh air, rather than just more of the same of stale old politicians who think that politics is a life-long profession.
Gomez (left) – Markey (rt.)
A Republican polling firm has found that the Massachusetts special election for the U.S. Senate is in a dead heat. Democrat Ed Markey, the longtime congressman, leads Republican and first-time candidate Gabriel Gomez by just a point. According to McLaughlin and Associates, a firm that often works for Republican candidates, 45 percent of likely voters in Massachusetts support Markey, while 44 percent support Gomez and 11 percent remain undecided. The election is on June 25.
Recently, the Cook Political Reports changed the race from leaning Democrat to a toss up. According to RCP, Markey is way ahead. However, the PPP, what so many have come to believe is the Holy Grail of polling only has Markey ahead by 4% and Markey is polling far less than 50%. This race is totally up for grabs and will depend on turn out in an off-off year election, at a time when Barack Obama is in deep trouble with scandals.
Senate Debate: Markey, Gomez Attack Over Guns, Benghazi.
Nearly 60% of Americans Believe High Ranking IRS Officials in Washington, DC & 50% of Obama Officials Were Aware of IRS Scandal … Also, Obama Administration Least Ethical Compared to GWB, Clinton, GHWB and Reagan
Barack Obama, losing the trust of the American People … Chicago-style politics catching up with Obama.
Barack Obama and his minions get poor grades in their handling of the IRS scandal and Americans believe that the IRS scandal was not limited to the Cincinnati office, but went straight to Washington, DC IRS headquarters and the White House.
The IRS scandal is really getting away from the Obama administration as they are losing the credibility battle with the American public. According to the most recent Gallup poll, 59% of Americans believe that high ranking officials in Washington, DC were aware of the IRS scandal that targeted conservative and Tea Party groups from gaining non-profit status. The spin that the scandal was just some rogue agents in Cincinnati has all but fallen apart. However, more damning for Barack Obama is that 50% of Americans now believe that high ranking Obama officials were aware of the IRS scandal, 72% of Republicans and 54% of Independents. This scandal is getting closer and closer to the Oval Office every day.
President Barack Obama is getting crushed on how Americans believe he is handling the IRS scandal. According to Gallup, a mere 32% approve on how he is handling it, while 58% disapprove. Even more damning for Obama and Democrats is that only 26% of Independents approve of Obama’s handling of the IRS matter, while a resounding 62% disapprove. Wait, it gets even worse for Obama. From what was claimed to be the most ethical and transparent administration ever comes the Gallup polling gives Barack Obama poor ethics rating and whose ethics are less that that of former presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan. With the multiple scandals continuing to snowball on Obama and we have not even including the NSA spying scandal on We the People … look for polling numbers to get worse and worse for Obama.

THE IRS SCANDAL … A CHARACTER ISSUE.
US Representative Trey Gowdy (SC-R) owns the room as he rips into the wasteful spending of the IRS as he fights back the tears at yesterdays Congressional Oversight Committee . Everyone, no matter what your political affiliation is needs to watch this. It is the reason why the abuses of the IRS affect everyone. Not only did this rogue government agency abuse its power and purposely targeted conservative and Tea Party organizations, but they also wasted the hard earned tax payer dollars on lavish conventions. Gowdy tells the story of a secretary in his office who asked him to borrow money for a birthday gift for her child, all the while that the IRS was spending $3500 a night on hotel rooms. As people are losing their jobs, homes and health insurance the IRS was spending $4,000,0000 at conferences.
Much more and many Tweets from Twitchy.
MUST SEE VIDEO FROM TREY GOWDY
The Gateway Pundit brings up a great point, how is Trey Gowdy not primary challenging Lindsey Graham in the South Carolina GOP Senate race?
More paid summer vacations for IRS agents caught doing wrong. Yup, this is how Barack Obama holds the IRS accountable.
The IRS has placed two top official in charge of implementing Obamacare on administrative leave after it was discovered he had accepted $1,162 in free food and other items during a 2010 conference. The same 2010 conference that we have seen ridiculous videos of line dancing and other wasteful spending of tax payer money. The IRS officials have been placed on administrative leave, with pay of course. Thus, these two IRS officials, along with Lois Lerner now have a paid summer vacation. Way to hold them accountable.
So let’s get this straight, we have an IRS scandal of Biblical proportions of a government agency that targeted conservative groups in a political manner and all we have to show for it is Lois Lerner on paid vacation and two other IRS officials place on administrative leave for taking free food? WTF!!! Not even close folks. People need to go to jail for this and its not about “free food”.
Sources say a key official in charge of overseeing health reform implementation, as well as another staffer, have been put on leave for accepting more than $1,000 in free meals and other items at a 2010 conference.
The IRS has put a top official in charge of implementing Obamacare on administrative leave after it was discovered he had accepted $1,162 in free food and other items during a 2010 conference.
In a statement, the IRS confirmed that two employees have been placed on administrative leave — which is paid — and have begun the process of removing them.
“[Acting IRS Director] Danny Werfel learned of the situation last night and immediately asked his leadership team to take action. He has also been in contact with key congressional committees about the situation,” the service said in the statement.
“When I came to IRS, part of my job was to hold people accountable,” Werfel said. “There was clearly inappropriate behavior involved in this situation, and immediate action is needed.”
The IRS informed congressional staff investigating the agency that Fred Schindler had been put on leave for accepting the gifts. A second unnamed staffer in the division was also put on leave for accepting the gifts, the aides said.
Weasel Zippers nails it … Forget rogue employees, the IRS is a rogue agency!!!
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.
