    Transcripts show IRS agents in Cincinnati -- not Washington -- flagged Tea Party cases


    Heya PB......here let help with the bubble.

    Cleta Mitchell, who is representing True the Vote, has filed an ethics probe against Elijah Cummings on February 6th with the Office of Congressional Ethics . Last fall, True the Vote started receiving 8 and 9 page letters from Cummings, claiming he was conducting an investigation of their organization as part of the House Oversight Committee. One problem. The House Oversight Committee is only allowed to investigate government agencies. Going after a private citizen is illegal.

    Mitchell wants to find out if Cummings is responsible in part or completely for the harassment of Catherine Engelbrecht, founder of True the Vote. After Cummings launched his “investigation” , Engelbrecht had her business audited twice, her personal taxes once, two visits from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, a surprise visit from OSHA, seven visits from the FBI.

    Last week, emails were released to the committee that showed that Cummings was working with Lois Lerner, which is why he attempted to scuttle the investigation into the IRS, immediately as soon as it was announced.

    Cleta Mitchell is turning up the heat with her public statements such as:....snip~

    OK, I have given you more lee way than I would most,...we are done here.

    Please read the stuff you have posted and see where the email clearly states they are targeting Tea Party organizations.

    THAT is an admission of the corruption.

    So thank you for continuing to prove the White House is not only lying, but the lemmings protecting the president cannot debate on fast but must at all times resort to insult an innuendo..got here late indeed...

    what an elitist, arrogant and useless post.

    I don't know.

    If you are aware of one then I suggest you post it.

    Otherwise please present your straw men to someone who gives a ****.

    Do not reply to this, it is your time wasted....you have nothing of value to contribute

    These liberals are simply evil, and highly unamerican. The very same people went ape **** over supposed outing of a non secret agent. With less than we have here, and now there is "no scandal"? Good grief!

    the only thing that the emails say is that the groups were specifically targeted.

    what is not admitted is the motivation for doing so.

    That's a lie^^^^^

    A few months later, in August, Cummings contacted the IRS to notify the agency that his own staff was planning to investigate the organization. On October 4, 2012, his office sent the first of a series of letters to True the Vote requesting information about its activities. Cummings was concerned that the group was engaging in voter intimidation and partisan activities, such as making a $5,000 donation to the Republican State Leadership Committee. Cummings asked the IRS for "publicly available information" about the group in January 2013.

    You know, since you liberals insist on massive government, the least you can do is insist that this massive government be as free from corruption and mismanagement and wastefulness as possible. A 'good' liberal (if there is such a thing) would be outraged at even a whiff of scandal coming from an agency as powerful and fearsome as the IRS. 'Bad' liberals lift the rug so that the corruption can be swept underneath.

Notice even though all other pieces tie in and his only explains one very small sliver, which don't mean much.

    We now have the DOJ playing games over Congressional members and what they were suppose to release. Plus now we have Cummings getting ready to be hit with an ethics investigation.


    Bozell: Broadcast Networks 'Allergic to the Truth About the IRS Scandal'.....


    The full press release:

    RESTON, Va. – Yesterday, Judicial Watch released a new batch of IRS documents that showed “extensive pressure on the IRS by Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) to shut down conservative leaning organizations.” According to an analysis from the Media Research Center, ABC, CBS, and NBC responded with exactly ZERO seconds of network news coverage. The released documents also revealed the IRS’s handling of the Tea Party applications was directed out of the agency’s DC headquarters, contrary to initial claims that blamed low-level officials in Cincinnati.

    In the year since the scandal broke, numerous major developments have gone completely unreported by the Big Three. Examples include:

    • On August 2, FoxNews.com reported that House Oversight chairman Darrell Issa had accused acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel of blocking the committee’s investigation. Network coverage: Zero.
    • On September 4, CNN’s Drew Griffin reported that documents showed Lerner’s original story blaming low-level employees was a lie.Network coverage: Zero.
    • On September 11, 2013 the Wall Street Journal exhibited how Lerner’s own e-mails implied a liberal political agenda at work. Network coverage: Zero.
    • On September 18, 2013, a front-page analysis published by USA Today confirmed the targeting of conservatives. ZERO seconds of coverage.
    • At the end of March 2014, the New York Times noted that the House committee was still being frustrated by non-cooperation from the IRS. Network coverage: Zero.
    • And, an April 7, 2014 staff report by the House Oversight and Government Reform committee thoroughly demolished what remained of the notion that both sides had been targeted. Network coverage: Zero.
    • Finally on May 7, 2014, The House of Representatives voted to hold disgraced IRS bureaucrat Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress. Total network coverage? 15 seconds on Good Morning America. Zero on CBS and NBC.

    See that's where many on the left get confused over.....the issue of those not giving coverage. That it means it isn't real and can be played with by the left's Direct Media sources.

    Which is why you see them try to avoid anything else put out.


    I really do not give any credence to what PB says on this issue....or any other for that matter.

    There is no issue on which the defenders of Obama have ever stood and fought on its merits, but demean the messenger...today alone I have been told "you obviously hate Obama because he is black" and put up with the snide insults of ideologues who can't read and think demeaning the individual will somehow sway public opinion to their side.

    For them the details, facts, are irrelevant just make the accuser look bad, imply he is stupid as is the case with everyone of replies. If they can shift the argument to one of personalities they deflect from the fact Obama is in this up to his little pen and his phone.

    It is no longer about the facts, Obama blew that out of the water with "I never said that" while the fawning MSM was proving he had, at least 40 times; it is about creating demons that look worse than your guy, hence the obsession with Palin et al. It is about blame shifting, Bush started it, and about yelling "jihadist" and "traitor' at those who disagree with you and above all...above everything else about deflecting the issue...

    So much so in this case we have even forgotten that the scandal was triggered by Lois Lerner volunteering the information at a lawyers conference....with that as a backdrop it is very hard to not laugh at thier sick and feeble attempts now to claim it never happened.

    And that's your big doo doo?

    They were targeted along partisan lines......

    That IS the issue......

    I kind of think that's nuance free....although in Obamaland anything's possible.
