IRS: the coverup continues

“[IRS conservative-attacker Lois] Lerner went after [Illinois Republican Al Salvi’s] 1996 Senate campaign with a lawsuit totaling $1.1 million — an enforcement action that was eventually thrown out of court — when she was working at the Federal Election Commission, according to Salvi.”

It became the centerpiece of news coverage of Salvi’s campaign and, thus, tarred real good with it, he lost the election to the Democrat.

The story had not been deemed newsworthy by the three broadcast networks’ evening news programs, by the New York Times or by the (WaPo].”

Of course not. Lerner is a Democrat operative.

Abolish the IRS: The dog ate their emails

The federal gestapo known as the IRS doesn’t bother to be honest anymore. They cover-up and dare anyone, including Congress, to do anything about it.

There needs to be an immediate investigation and forensic audit by Department of Justice as well as the Inspector General.”

Who, Eric Holder? Fart, Barf & Itch? Ha, ha. Not in ObamaLand. The law doesn’t apply to them and their cronies. And the Democrat media couldn’t care less.

UPDATE:  401 days since the IRS scandal and the official cover-up began. With the continuing cooperation of the Democrat news media: “The New York Times today devotes zero words to the story. Take a look at the front page here: Nothing.”

Those cowardly Republicans

“Democrat seeking re-election urges IRS to get tougher on non-profit political groups.” Or something like that. The headline of a piece I saw browsing the Web but didn’t click on.

Didn’t need to. Not hard to figure out. The IRS is doing the bidding of the administration and their party, thanks to the indifference of the Democrat-oriented snooze media.

And the cowardly Republican Party. Gad, I’m fed up with those clowns. Cowardly or corrupt, take your pick. Either way they are sitting on their hands. Dropping the ball on Benghazi was bad enough. Allowing the damned IRS to be a political enforcer is insane.

Code of silence

I wasn’t impressed with Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly’s interview of the president. O’Reilly wasn’t very well prepared to duel with a pathological liar who was bound not to tell the truth. He never has before.

Indeed, Wormtongue smiled and smiled as he claimed there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” at his IRS, and O’Reilly’s best response was to toss out a few flustered non sequiturs.

He should, of course, have then asked why Worm’s former IRS director of tax-exempt organizations, Lois Lerner, invoked her Fifth Amendment right not to testify before a House committee last spring? We all know what we should have said or done, but, unlike O’Reilly, we’re not paid to query criminal politicians.
