Evidence Shows White House Involved in IRS Targeting Scandal from Beginning

From the moment the IRS targeting scandal was made public, I contended that Barack Obama and the White House were at the heart of the targeting. I’ve written many times that then IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman made far more visits to the White House than any other cabinet member. Before Shulman’s departure, he made 157 visits to the White House. The next most frequent cabinet member visitor was Acting Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank with only 86 visits. Attorney General Eric Holder only Read more […]

IRS Admits Finding 30,000 Lois Lerner Emails Presumed Lost

Former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman made 157 visits to the White House prior to the breaking news of the IRS targeting scandal. In comparison with other Cabinet members, the next most frequent visitor to the Obama residence was then Acting Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank who made only 86 visits. So when the IRS targeting scandal broke, Barack Obama claimed complete ignorance of what was going on and denied any involvement. Yet I can’t help but wonder if the entire targeting policies Read more […]

Poll Shows GOP Could Lose Senate Seat of Minority Leader McConnell

A month ago, I reported that Democratic US Senate candidate Allison Lundergan Grimes was embroiled in a primary payoff scandal in Kentucky.  Grimes and several other Democrats are hoping to face off against incumbent GOP Senator Mitch McConnell who also happens to be the Senate Minority Leader. In the scandal, Democrat Ed Marksberry reported that shortly after Grimes’ father Jerry Lundergan expressed concern about Marksberry’s role in the primary race, he was approached by a person who told Read more […]

Kentucky Democratic Senate Primary Payoff Scandal

If allegations are correct, there is more than one way to win a primary election in the good ole state of Kentucky. Kentucky Republicans have requested US Attorney David Hale to launch an investigation into the reported payoff scheme of Democrats vying for the chance to face off against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.  The Lexington Herald-Leader reported that Democratic US Senate Candidate Ed Marksberry said he was offered favors if he would pull out of the primary race against Democrat Read more […]

Settled: Christie’s Traffic Jam Worse Than Hillary’s Benghazi

Boy, oh, boy, is New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in deep! First came the revelation that members of his staff orchestrated the closing of the George Washington Bridge in a Democratic mayor’s city as political revenge for that mayor’s refusal to endorse Christie for re-election in 2013. This fiasco spawned the utterly silly moniker “Bridgegate,” an attempt to create in people’s minds a connection between the closing of the bridge and Watergate, which the media decided even before all the Read more […]

Media Manufacture Christie “Bridgegate” Scandal While Ignoring Obama’s “Government Shutdown” Antics

I have to admit, I haven’t paid much attention to this scandal allegedly emanating from the Chris Christie bunch. The one that apparently involved someone in Christie’s staff shutting off access to a bridge and causing a huge traffic jam as a sort of punishment for Fort Lee, New Jersey’s mayor not endorsing Christie. I know I’m supposed to be “outraged,” but I feel nothing. It’s completely manufactured by the media. They’re already choosing candidates for the next presidential Read more […]

Obama Buddy Heads Up “Investigation” Into IRS

It was way back in May of last year that the IRS started making headlines about their targeting of tea party groups and their delaying or rejecting of various conservative groups’ applications for tax-exempt status based on their political opinions. In short, the IRS was targeting Obama’s political enemies and trying to prevent them from gaining any ground. Not surprisingly, liberals responded that it was only the work of a few “rogue” agents in Cincinnati, and as long as those employees Read more […]

Fast & Furious Scandal: Obama Is Guilty

Tom Petri said: “As so often happens with Washington scandals, it isn’t the original scandal that gets people in the most trouble – it’s the attempted cover-up.” The Obama administration has been the most secretive, dense, and corrupt administration in a long time—possibly ever. Without the media acting as watchdogs, most Americans don’t have any idea. If Obama were Republican, you better believe that every American would know every sordid detail about Benghazi, the IRS, the NSA, and Fast & Read more […]

Lying IRS: How a Scandal Grows

As the lies told by the IRS continue to unravel the only question which remains is when the slow drip of truth about their willful harassment of conservatives will finally stop? It seems unlikely to be any time soon. Today Reuters is reporting that IRS officials in Washington were notified of the wrongheaded practices of the Cincinnati field office more than a year earlier than they have previously admitted. A mid-level IRS agent was told to add the words “Tea Party” and “Patriot” to a Read more […]

CBS Spins IRS Scandal To Advocate More Spying

The Internal Revenue Service has been caught harassing groups that seemed “conservative” or “right-wing.” Yet the fact that the IRS did not give the same unjust treatment to all right-wing advocacy groups is being treated  by CBS as a kind of negligence. Under the headline, “IRS targeting overlooked biggest players in outside political spending” CBS reported, “Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS and the Koch brothers’ Americans for Prosperity were among those that spent tens of millions Read more […]

Obama Ran Clean Administration With NO Scandals Says NY Times Columnist

I’ve heard of looking at the world through rose colored glasses, but David Brooks of the New York Times has to be looking through black glasses to see what he saw. Speaking on the PBS News Hour post-election coverage, Brooks told his fellow commentators that Barack Obama’s first term in office was very clean and free of scandal. He did say that Obama was arrogant at times and subject to overconfidence but was a man of high integrity. “First of all, I would say if anybody is subject to overconfidence, Read more […]
