On today’s edition of the FreedomCast, CJ Ciaramella joins me to discuss the latest revelations in the IRS targeting scandal, whether the White House received confidential taxpayer information against the law and if there’s any chance the DoJ will act to protect your privacy.
It’s been over a year now since our people died in the attack and we still don’t know where the CINC was for those 8 hours …::: Republicans ‘dead serious’ about bringing Hillary Clinton back to face MORE grilling as they slam State Department over Benghazi.
We deserve to know the answers, where were you, sir. It just requires a simple answer, one sentence will do. Duty calls … They built the situation room in the residence, so you didn’t have to leave the house to get on top of critical situations.
We do know you had a hollywood fundraiser the next day. Where were your priorities?
It’s day 99 of the IRS Phony Scandal … Where things are moving right along, like a snail, but still moving.
Remember Nixon was impeached for crap like this, using the IRS to target his political opposition. I see no difference.

WASHINGTON POST: IRS drumbeat continues with Congress on break. “House Republicans opened a new front Tuesday in their examination of the IRS targeting issue, demanding all work-related e-mails from the personal account of agency official Lois Lerner. House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) requested the communications in a letter to Lerner, who was placed on administrative leave in May after an inspector general’s report revealed that the agency had screened groups for extra scrutiny based on their political ideology.”
Nixon’s playbook … Obstruct, obfuscate, but they finally got him … As the drip, drip, drip, continues.
The Oversight Committee accuses the Obama Administration of impeding and obstructing the investigation.
“During the past two weeks, President Obama and you have repeatedly labeled the IRS’s strategy of targeting Americans for their political beliefs as a ‘phony’ scandal. While the Obama Administration has so publicly deflected responsibility for the targeting, it simultaneously has attempted to thwart congressional oversight into the matter… the IRS has engaged in a systematic effort to delay, frustrate, impede, and obstruct the Committee’s investigation,” Issa writes in a letter to Lew accompanying the subpoena.
The IRS targeted over 292 conservative groups before the 2012 election. With delay of their tax exempt status which hindered the groups ability to fund raise. And like won the 2012 election for Obama.
Targeting your enemies IRS auditor reaffirms that conservatives, not liberals, were targeted
The IRS abuse continues to this day.
“Back in my district, it appears the Allen Area Patriots have also been a target of the IRS,” said Rep. Sam Johnson, Texas Republican. “The bottom line is that the IRS has been used as a political weapon, and that’s just outrageous.”
And the lamestream media sees nothing … What happened to all the outrage?
