No He Did Not … WH Mouth Piece Jay Carney Says, “Just Because IRS Apologized Doesn’t Mean They Did Anything Wrong”
NO HE DID NOT …
Are you joking, as if Obama White House
Spokesman Spin Doctor had not lost all credibility, now he say the following dribble? Carney actually said today, when asked about why President Barack Obama used the word “IF” after the IRS had already apologized and acknowledged wrong doing in targeting Conservative groups like the Tea Party, that the IRS apology was not evidence of a scandal. HUH? That’s it Carney, keep digging that hole. These folks are making matters worse at this point and its about to become quicksand for the Obama presidency. Carney is to have us believe that Barack Obama and his peeps did not know anything of what the IRS was doing, nor the ridiculous narrative that Obama knew nothing about Benghazi and AP-gate. In other words we either have the biggest liar as president that has ever set foot in the White House or the most incompetent fool who has no idea what is going on around him. You make the call.
Obama through his mouth piece Carney wants Americans to wait for an investigation by the Obama/Holder Justice Department who could not find voter intimidation by Black Panthers in Philly, yet we are supposed to have faith that they can investigate themselves when the IRS targeted an Obama enemies list. Really?
Does Jay Carney have any more credibility? He is now below uses cars salesman on the cred meter.
President Obama Waited 3 Days after IRS Apology to Address IRS Scandal of Targeting Conservatives and Uses the “IF” Word … “IF in fact IRS Personnel Engaged in the Kind of Practices that Have Been Reported on …
With President Barack Obama, it all depends on what “IF” is … When it Comes to an Enemies List.
Talk about late to the game. Finally after three days President Barack Obama addresses the scandal of the IRS targeting Conservative groups like the Tea Party or non-profit groups with the word “patriot” or groups that would teach others of the US Constitution. Barack Obama tried to absolve himself from the scandal by saying he just learned about this scandal on Friday when the report came out. Really Mr. President, you just learned about it? Next thing you are going to tell us that the Benghazi attack was a result of the video tape. Obama went on to say with a look of a child who got caught with his hand in the cookie jar, ”If in fact IRS personnel engaged in the kind of practice that have been reported on and were intentionally targeting Conservative groups then that’s outrageous. And there is no place for it. And they have to be held fully accountable”. IF THIS IS TRUE? IF? Has Obama been listening to what the IRS has been saying or is he just not that bright? The IRS has already admitted that they intentionally targeted Conservative non-profits, and those organizations that would educate as to the US Constitution on and those that would dare criticize the Obama government. Mr. Presidnt, why do you think the IRS apologized … um, for their intentionally targeting of Conservative groups. Also Mr. President, what the IRS did was not just outrageous, IT WAS ILLEGAL!!!
Hey America, this is the same IRS that is in charge of enforcing Barack Obama’s Obamacare. How’s that “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for ya?
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET BIG GOVERNMENT TYRANY AND LIBERTY DIES
On Monday, President Obama called the singling out of conservative groups by the Internal Revenue Service “outrageous”, adding: “I have no patience with it. I will not tolerate it.”
Obama’s strong condemnation of the growing scandal came amid similar denunciations from Democratic elected officials. Montana Sen. Max Baucus called it an “outrageous abuse of power and a breach of the public’s trust.” West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin described the IRS’ actions as “unacceptable and un-American.” You get the idea.
The question being asked in the political world today is whether the condemnations are too little, too late. As in, did the Obama Administration — and other Democrats in the House and Senate — miss their chance to claim some sort of high(ish) message ground by largely taking a pass on the story when it broke on Friday morning?
So why is Barack Obama so outraged? The IRS really didn’t do anything that his own reelect campaign did not do with the Tea Party, Conservative or those who believe in the US Constitution and put them all on an Obama enemies list. Wasn’t it this president who created a snitch website in 2012 for moonbats to report anyone who dare make comments about Obama and criticize him called Attack Watch?
Better than Obama’s dribble of trying to BS the American public that he never knew of any of this comes the quote of the day from Hot Air. Attorney Dan Backer, whose client TheTeaParty said, “And that’s when we knew it was gonna be a problem.”… “Nobody wipes their own ass in the government without a lawyer clearing it,” Backer said. “The idea that this is not at least a few layers up is nonsense.”
EXIT QUESTION: For Obama being the supposed smartest President ever, why does he always seem to play dumb when confronted with a scandal?
And the Other Shoe has Dropped … Senior IRS Officials Knew Tea Party was Targeted in 2011, not 2012 … Why Has No One Been Fired?
So we have a government agency that is targeting groups in the United States for their 1st Amendment political free speech and no one has been fired?
The other day when the IRS came out and apologized for targeting Conservative groups and Tea Party organization, we asked, is this the tip of the iceberg, where are the rest of the cockroaches? Others, like Powerline, were pondering as well as to why now the IRS would make such an apology. We now know why the IRS apologized. They were trying to get ahead of the real story that the Politico is saying is supposed to be released next week. But even in their apology, they lied. As reported by the AP, senior Internal Revenue Service officials knew agents were targeting tea party groups as early as 2011. That is quite a bit different from the 2012 apology. Also, this is quite a bit different from IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman telling Congress in 2012 that the IRS was not targeting groups based on their political views. This would be called lying to Congress or perjury. Add another scandal to the Obama presidency … IRS-gate.
Tea Party 2009 - Nashville, TN (Pic- Scared Monkeys)
Senior Internal Revenue Service officials knew agents were targeting tea party groups as early as 2011, according to a draft of an inspector general’s report obtained by The Associated Press that seemingly contradicts public statements by the IRS commissioner.
The IRS apologized Friday for what it acknowledged was “inappropriate” targeting of conservative political groups during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status. The agency blamed low-level employees, saying no high-level officials were aware.
But on June 29, 2011, Lois G. Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt organizations, learned at a meeting that groups were being targeted, according to the watchdog’s report. At the meeting, she was told that groups with “Tea Party,” ”Patriot” or “9/12 Project” in their names were being flagged for additional and often burdensome scrutiny, the report says.
Conservative Radio Talk Show Host Phil Valentine providing his 2 cents on government waste and overtaxation
A note to IRS Director of Exempt Organizations Lois G. Lerner, it is not wrong, it is not incorrect, insensitive or inappropriate … IT IS ILLEGAL!!! So now we are learning that the harassment and illegal targeting of Tea Party groups as an enemies list was happening in 2011, long before the 2012 president election season. Of course this was not done to prevent the Tea Party from having a greater impact in the 2012 elections was it? Never! We have been told that this was not done by political appointees, but rather career IRS employees. This is supposed to be a good thing? You mean we have bias, career employees in the IRS who have taken political sides? Hmm, an enemies list and a government agency acting in a “Gestapo” type manner … How Nixonian. SO WHY HASN’T ANYONE BEEN FIRED!!!
UPDATE I: CNS News is reporting that the Ways and Means to IRS: ‘Provide All Communications Containing Words ‘Tea Party,’ ‘Patriot,’ or ‘Conservative’—By Wednesday.
The House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Oversight has thrown down an investigative gauntlet to the Internal Revenue Service, demanding that the agency hand over by next Wednesday every communication in its records that includes the words “tea party,” “patriot” or “conservative.”
The committee is also demanding of the IRS that by next Wednesday it provide the committee with the names and titles of all individuals who were involved in targeting conservative non-profit groups for more intensive review of their applications for non-profit status.
How come we did not hear anything like this during George W. Bush?
Senate Majority Leader Dingy Harry Reid (NV-D) to Senator Ted Cruz (TX-R): “My Friend from Texas is Like a Schoolyard Bully” … Democratic Strategist James Carville Called Cruz Talented & Fearless
Talk about the pot calling the kettle
black a bully …
Democrat Senate Majority Leader Dingy Harry said of Senator Ted Cruz, “My friend from Texas is like a schoolyard bully.” Wow, really? Obviously Harry Reid is having a case of selective amnesia because as Hot Air opines, Harry Reid has never thrown a political punch below the belt in the course of his career. NEVER EVER. If Reid thinks that Cruz is a school yard bully for his actions, what would one call Reid when he was desperately buying and threatening Senators to vote for Obamacare ?
Senator Ted Cruz responds to those who would try and bully him … Some Say I Lack Civility And Have ‘Insulted Me While Doing So’
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) called freshman GOP Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) a “schoolyard bully” during a contentious exchange Monday on the Senate floor.
The two senators bickered as Cruz rose to object to Reid’s motion to appoint conferees to a House-Senate budget committee.
Cruz said he was concerned that the conference report—which cannot be filibustered—would be used to raise the nation’s debt ceiling. He asked that Reid amend his motion to go to conference to make out of order any provisions raising taxes or raising the debt ceiling.
Reid said Cruz had a chance to amend the Senate budget—which raises $975 billion in new tax revenue from tax reform—when it was considered on the floor.
He said Cruz’s request to eliminate all taxes in a final House-Senate budget was absurd.
“The senator from Texas was on the losing side…now he wants us to adopt the losing side’s view or we cannot go to conference,” Reid said.
“My friend from Texas is like a schoolyard bully,” Reid added.
However, not everyone thinks Cruz is a bully, some think he is amazing. Over the weekend, long time Democrat strategist James Carville said of Sen. Cruz, “I think he is the most talented and fearless Republican politician I’ve seen in the last 30 years.
8th Grader Jared Marcum Arrested & Suspended for Wearing NRA ‘Protect Your Right’ T-Shirt With Image of Gun
How do things like this happen in the United States?
Jared Marcum, an 8th grader at the Logan Middle School in West Virginia has been arrested, suspended and faces charges for wearing an NRA T-shirt with the image of a firearm and the words “Protect Your Right” printed on it to school. HUH? Police confirmed that Marcum had been arrested and faced charges of obstruction and disturbing the education process after getting into an argument with a teacher. HUH? The school is claiming that the shirt that Marcum was wearing, an NRA shirt that had “Protect Your Right” on it with the image of a gun violated the school’s dress code. However, no where in reviewing the school’s dress code policy did the 8th grader appear to violate said policy. No where in the dress code policy did it prohibit gun images.
Unreal. This school and this foolish teacher would attempt to ruin a kids life by having him arrested over a shirt with the image of a gun on it. Liberalism and PC running wild. Who knew that a pro-Second Amendment shirt would result in an 8th graders First Amendment rights being trampled? So where is the ACLU coming to his aid to protect his civil rights?
WOWK-TV reported Jared Marcum saying he never thought there would be a problem with his pro-Second Amendment apparel.
“I never thought it would go this far because honestly I don’t see a problem with this. There shouldn’t be a problem with this,” Marcum told WOWK-TV.
Police confirmed that Marcum had been arrested and faced charges of obstruction and disturbing the education process after getting into an argument over the shirt with a teacher at Logan Middle School, which is south of Charleston.
How does all this lead to an arrest and an 8th grader being sent to jail? Seriously, how does a dress code issue wind up in a school calling the police and attempting to ruin a kids life? Is this how educators think they are providing our children with an education? Maybe the teachers and school administrators need to do a home work assignment of their own and read the US Constitution.
This family should sue this school district and the teacher who he got into the argument with individually.
UPDATE I: The families lawyer, Ben White, said that the T-shirt did not appear to violate any school policy. White said he also wants to get the criminal charges dropped. It was the school that created this incident by improperly interpreting their own dress code policy and then escalating it with calling the police.
Their lawyer, Ben White, said that the T-shirt did not appear to violate any school policy.
“I just don’t understand why this teacher reacted the way he did,” said White, who said he asked school officials to preserve surveillance video of the cafeteria.
White said he planned to meet Monday with Principal Ernestine Sutherland.
Why we love Dr. Ben Carson, he calls it like it is an is unafraid to do so.
Last night on Mark Levin’s radio show Dr. Ben Carson, the new voice of conservatism, discussed the “left-wing media’s” attempt to attack him and stop his speech on many issues and views on gay marriage and religion. As Carson has stated in the past, political correctness, threatens to destroy our nation. Carson states that “they” need to shut me up completely and the reason why the attacks against him are so vicious. There is nothing like a comment from a Black conservative for the LEFT to lose their minds. Dr. Carson told Levin that, in his experience, white liberals are the “most racist people there are.”
“They need to shut me up, they need to delegitimize me,” Carson told the radio host while explaining why he believes the media has scorned him for lumping homosexuality in with unsavory sexual acts like bestiality and pedophilia.
Levin added that the doctor has been attacked by “white liberals” because he is a black conservative, to which Carson replied: “They are the most racist people there are. Because they put you in a little category, a little box. You have to think this way. How could you dare come off the plantation?”
“I don’t have a particular agenda that I’m pushing,” he added. “So it would be particularly difficult for them to trip me up.”
As Weasel Zippers aptly states, Libs prove Ben Carson’s point by calling him a “token” or “uncle tom” in 3 … 2 … 1.
With all due respect to Bill O’Reilly … DR. BEN CARSON IS THE IS THE SECOND MOST FEARED MAN OF THE LEFT BEHIND RUSH AND MIGHT EVEN WELL BE #1!
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) Schools 6th Grade Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) on the US Constitution and the 1st, 2nd and 4th Amendments … Feinstein Responds: “I’m Not a 6th Grader… I’ve Been Here For a Long Time!”
WHY WE LOVE SENATOR TED CRUZ AND NEED TO FIGURE OUT WHETHER HE IS ELIGIBLE TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT.
Yesterday, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) took Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to school and taught her the finer points of the US Constitution and the 1st, 2nd and 4th Amendments. In an astute, logical and intelligent manner, Sen. Cruz asked Sen. Feinstein a simple question as to whether the 1st Amendment should only apply to some books and not others? Also, would the 4th Amendment only protect the rights od some individuals from illegal searches and seizures and not others? Cruz so brilliantly phrased, constructed and articulated his comparison question that it left Feinstein to snap back in an emotional manner and say, “I’m not a sixth grader … it’s fine you want to lecture me on the Constitution.”
The Question from Ted Cruz to Dianne Feinstein From The Weekly Standard:
The question that I would pose to the senior senator from California is,” said Cruz to Feinstein, “Would she deem it consistent with the Bill of Rights for Congress to engage in the same endeavor that we are contemplating doing with the Second Amendment in the context of the First or Fourth Amendment, namely, would she consider it constitutional for Congress to specify that the First Amendment shall apply only to the following books and shall not apply to the books that Congress has deemed outside the protection of the Bill of Rights? Likewise, would she think that the Fourth Amendment’s protection against searches and seizures could properly apply only to the following specified individuals and not to the individuals that Congress has deemed outside the protection of the Bill of Rights?
Senator Feinstein took exception to the fact that she was schooled by Cruz stating she thought he was arrogant and patronizing (VIDEO). Arrogant? Actually Feinstein thinks she should not be questioned by a freshman Senator. Now that’s arrogant. Obviously the Democrat Senator who’s only qualification on the US Constitution is that she has been in the Senate for decades cannot deal with a debate on her Unconstitutional gun ban. Actually Senator Feinstein, the fact that you have been in the Senate is only more of a reason why there should be term limits.
GAME, SET AND MATCH as in the end Feinstein was forced to answer Cruz’s question saying, “Obviously YES!”,However, do you want to get in the mind of a ceased, anti-Second Amendment liberal … Dianne Feinstein compared the so-called assault weapons banned, that has already failed in the past, to child porn.
Ted Cruz is a star in the making and a breath of fresh air in the US Senate in Washington, DC. Another reason why we love Senator Ted Cruz, from Weasel Zippers, checks out his back ground and the reason why he could so easily make Feinstein twist in the wind.
In one corner we have Ted Cruz, a brilliant Harvard educated Constitutional lawyer who has authored more than 80 Supreme Court briefs and presented more than 40 oral arguments, including nine before the Supreme Court itself, he also served as law clerk for Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist.
By the way DI-FI, next time don’t insult sixth graders.
As Obama White House Denies Threats to Woodward, Democrat Lanny Davis Admits to Threats From Obama White House as Well (Update: Add Ron Fournier to the List)
WOODWARDGATE CONTINUES …
As the Barack Obama White House denies that Gene Sperling, an economic adviser to the president, threatened journalist Bob Woodward, along comes this bombshell. FOX News contributor and former President Bill Clinton aid Lanny Davis said he also received threats from the Obama regime. It would seem that the Obama Chicago-style brand of politics knows no bounds, including threatening the press. How ironic is it that the very group of people who have carried Obama’s water and acted more as a propaganda arm of the Obama White House than a fact checking, investigative news source, is actually being threatened behind the scenes. So much for the First Amendment and Freedom of the Press.
Lanny Davis stated that his editor was threatened by a senior Obama White House official ”that if he [the editor] continued to run my [Lanny Davis] columns, he would lose, or his reporters would lose their White House credentials.” Could Barack Obama be any more like Richard Nixon?
Bob Woodward isn’t the only person who’s received threats for airing the Obama administration’s dirty laundry. It seems anyone is a potential target of the White House these days – even former senior members of the Clinton administration.
A day after Woodward’s claim that a senior White House official had told him he would “regret” writing a column criticizing President Obama’s stance on the sequester, Lanny Davis, a longtime close advisor to President Bill Clinton, told WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall Thursday he had received similar threats for newspaper columns he had written about Obama in the Washington Times.
Davis told WMAL that his editor, John Solomon, “received a phone call from a senior Obama White House official who didn’t like some of my columns, even though I’m a supporter of Obama. I couldn’t imagine why this call was made.” Davis says the Obama aide told Solomon, “that if he continued to run my columns, he would lose, or his reporters would lose their White House credentials.”
But wait, there is more, add Ron Fournier to the list of media who have been threatened by this thug White House. What makes me think that this is not norm and not the exception and that this White House has been doing this all along?
As editor-in-chief of National Journal, I received several e-mails and telephone calls from this White House official filled with vulgarity, abusive language, and virtually the same phrase that Politico characterized as a veiled threat. “You will regret staking out that claim,” The Washington Post reporter was told.
As stated at the Hit and Run blog, the Most Openly and Transparently Thin-Skinned Administration in History. Amen brother. It was only made worse and enable by a cowardly and complicit media.
The Anti-First Amendment WH: Barack Obama White House Threatens Veteran Journalist Bob Woodward … “You Will Regret Doing This”
SEQUESTERGATE: Chicago-style politics at its worst … now they are attacking the press.
The Empire Strakes Back … Not only does the Barack Obama White House not like the Second Amendment, it would appear that they also have a disdain for the First Amendment and “Freedom of the Press”. A senior White House official threatened Bob Woodward in an email stating, “you will regret doing this”. The “this” that is being referred to is veteran journalist Bob Woodward’s not carrying the water for Barack Obama like the rest of the liberal, corrupt media complex when last week Woodward called out Obama for what he said was “moving the goal posts” on the sequester by requesting that revenue be part of a deal to avert it. Woodward had previously stated, “So when the president asks that a substitute for the sequester include not just spending cuts but also new revenue, he is moving the goal posts… [T]hat was not the deal he made.” How dare anyone go against the imperial president Obama and call him for what he is, a liar. As stated at the PJ Tatler, Woodward spoiled Obama’s plan to blame the entire sequester on Republicans, then allow the cuts to hit, and blame them again.
So what does the Obama WH do, attack a member of the press and try and trivialize him. So much for “Freedom of the Press”. Woodward stated, “It makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters, ‘You’re going to regret doing something that you believe in.” What must the rest of the MSM be thinking, who have never displayed a spine or journalistic integrity when reporting on President Obama?
Bob Woodward said this evening on CNN that a “very senior person” at the White House warned him in an email that he would “regret doing this,” the same day he has continued to slam President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known as the sequester.
CNN host Wolf Blitzer said that the network invited a White House official to debate Woodward on-air, but the White House declined.
During CNN’s “The Situation Room” interview with Wolf Blizer veteran journalist Bob Woodward stated that that a senior White House official threatened him saying, “It was said very clearly, you will regret doing this.” Bob Woodward calls the Obama Administration Mickey Mouse. Well, if the ears fit …
“[W] hen the president asks that a substitute for the sequester include not just spending cuts but also new revenue, he is moving the goal posts,” Woodward wrote. “His call for a balanced approach is reasonable, and he makes a strong case that those in the top income brackets could and should pay more. But that was not the deal he made.”
Transcript from Real Clear Politics:
WOLF BLITZER, CNN: You’re used to this kind of stuff, but share with our viewers what’s going on between you and the White House.
BOB WOODWARD: Well, they’re not happy at all and some people kind of, you know, said, look, ‘we don’t see eye to eye on this.’ They never really said, though, afterwards, they’ve said that this is factually wrong, and they — and it was said to me in an e-mail by a top –
BLITZER: What was said?
WOODWARD: It was said very clearly, you will regret doing this.
BLITZER: Who sent that e-mail to you?
WOODWARD: Well, I’m not going to say.
BLITZER: Was it a senior person at the White House?
WOODWARD: A very senior person. And just as a matter — I mean, it makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters, ‘you’re going to regret doing something that you believe in, and even though we don’t look at it that way, you do look at it that way.’ I think if Barack Obama knew that was part of the communication’s strategy, let’s hope it’s not a strategy, that it’s a tactic that somebody’s employed, and said, ‘Look, we don’t go around trying to say to reporters, if you, in an honest way, present something we don’t like, that, you know, you’re going to regret this.’ It’s Mickey Mouse. (The Situation Room, February 27, 2013)
Isn’t this something? When Bob Woodward was reporting on Watergate and bringing down the presidency of Republican Richard Nixon, he was a hero. Now that Woodward is using the same truth and principles he did during Watergate against Barack Obama, the LEFT are attacking him. It is so predictable and pathetic. How about a little consistency folks? In all reality, had the liberal, corrupt media complex done their job and actually investigated this president, his anti-Constitution, green-energy payoffs would have made the Watergate scandal pale in comparison to the actions during the Obama administration.
