Lois Lerner – the Obama administration employee at the center of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) scandal who resigned during the governmental issues involving accusations of the IRS targeting conservative groups – has emerged in negative headlines again during her retirement, according to the Washington Examiner and a host of media sources released on Friday. In the latest development of Lerner’s alleged misdeeds, newly-obtained emails have revealed that Lerner shared very confidential tax information of several Tea Party (conservative) groups with the Federal Election Commission. These actions by Lerner, of course, are a blatant violation of federal law….
As reported by Judicial Watch:
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained email exchanges between former Internal Revenue Services (IRS) Director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner and enforcement attorneys at the Federal Election Commission (FEC) indicating that the IRS provided detailed, confidential information concerning the tax exempt application status and returns of conservative groups to the FEC in violation of federal law. Included with the email exchanges were IRS questionnaires to a conservative group that contained questions of a hostile nature.
The emails were produced to Judicial Watch last week by the FEC in response to an August 9, 2013, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking access to the following for the timeframe January 1, 2009, to the present (the IRS received a FOIA request for the same information and has not yet responded):
- Any and all records concerning, regarding, or related to the FEC’s coordination with the IRS regarding the political activities of 501(c) (4) non-profit organizations;
- Any and all communications between the FEC and the IRS regarding the political activities of non-profit organizations.
The revealing email chain obtained by Judicial Watch begins with a February 3, 2009, email from a redacted FEC attorney asking Lerner if the IRS had issued an exemption letter for American Future Fund (AFF)….
It is offensive and unjust that those who would deny most Americans theirs liberties when caught with their pants down (no pun intended) lawyer up under their liberties.
Equally offensive is that this disgrace is living the life of leisure on taxpayer dollars not to mention the fact that we are a legal counsel for this woman will do all in its power to see that Lerner walks away a free and whole.
If the White House illegally had the Koch Brothers tax returns, which, per the article below, it appears they did, then Obama has been working with the IRS for 2 years to wage a war on his political enemies. Today he said he just learned about the IRS war Friday.
Excerpted from a September 20, 2010 article in The Weekly Standard: …a lawyer for Koch Industries now tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD that the administration may have crossed a line by revealing tax information about Koch Industries. According to Mark Holden, senior vice president and general counsel of Koch Industries, a senior Obama administration official told reporters at an August 27 on-the-record background briefing on corporate taxes:
So in this country we have partnerships, we have S corps, we have LLCs, we have a series of entities that do not pay corporate income tax. Some of which are really giant firms, you know Koch Industries is a multibillion dollar businesses…..
Less than 24 hours ago, Barack Hussein Obama made the following statement regarding the Internal Revenue Service illegally auditing Conservative and Libertarian entities.
“I first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people learned about this. I think it was on Friday….If in fact the IRS personnel engaged in the kind of practices that have been reported on uh..and were intentionally targeting Conservative groups then that’s outrageous and there’s no place for it…”
Below are remarks from Jay Carney made last Friday:
0:44 “…My understanding is this matter is under investigation by the IG at the IRS…uh… fact of the matter is what we know about this uh… is of concern and we certainly find the uh… actions taken uh… as reported to be inappropriate and we would fully expect the investigation to be thorough and for uh…for corrections to be made….”
It takes hubris for Obama and his boy toy, Carney to take the public stage, pretend to be offended, downright shocked and appalled while misrepresenting the facts not only to the nation but to Obama’s hand puppets, i.e., the White House press.
In other words, while the media last Friday reported that the “alleged” harsh questioning of Carney by the White House press was the result of their being miffed over months of Carney misrepresenting the facts on Benghazi, Carney in that very same meeting continued to misrepresent the facts on numerous subjects.
Said revelation turns one’s attention to the “off the record” meeting between Carney and the White House press that occurred earlier Friday.
Was the purpose of the so-called “off the record” meeting to set the stage for the dog and pony show that ensued two hours later? Just asking because it is clear that somebody is b.s.ing somebody, or at least, thinks they are.
Translation: Another White House cover-up underway. Equally repulsive is the revelation that the Internal Revenue Service is Barack Obama’s policing agency doling out punishment to Americans commensurate with their principles relative to the U. S. Constitution and opposition to a totalitarian regime.
Of further note, Dem. Senator: IRS Actions ‘Un-American’
Democratic senator Joe Manchin calls the IRS’s activities ‘unacceptable and un-American.’
‘The actions of the IRS are unacceptable and un-American. Government agencies using their bureaucratic muscle to target Americans for their political beliefs cannot be tolerated. The President must immediately condemn this attack on our values, find those individuals in his Administration who are responsible and fire them,’ says the West Virginia Democratic senator….
I recall the overwhelming silence by Joe Manchin and his merry band of Marxist elites in 2010 and 2011 when complaints about the IRS targeting Americans surfaced. Not a word from them or the White House media puppets.

Of course, the media is not reporting it as such but that is exactly what it boils down to. As reported by the Washington Examiner,
“Attorney General Eric Holder, the IRS, and the liberal lawyers at the ACLU will brief several hundred pastors in the African American community on how to participate in the presidential election — which the Congressional Black Caucus chair expects will help President Obama’s campaign.
‘We will have representatives from nine denominations who actually pastor somewhere in the neighborhood of about 10 million people, and we’re going to first of all equip them with the information they need to know about what they can say and what they cannot say in the church that would violate their 501c3 status with the IRS,’ Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., told MSNBC today.
‘In fact, we’re going to have the IRS administrator there, we’re going to have the Attorney General Eric Holder there, we’re going to have the lawyers’ organization from around the country, the ACLU — all giving ministers guidance about what they can and cannot do,’ he noted….”
Sound like a threat to you? Sounds like a threat to me.
Clearly, Sharpton and Jackson have lost their touch with the Black community so much so that Barack Obama has now decided to send his ultimate police force (aka the Internal Revenue Service) to (a) control the message, (b) scare the hell out of the pastors and (c) put them in check.
The message to Black pastors and the Black community is this: You submit and do as you are told or the Internal Revenue Service will be knocking at your door.
This so-called briefing has nothing to do with so-called draconian laws on the books as claimed by Holder. This is about disempowering pastors, silencing the Black community and controlling the message from the pulpit, thus keeping Black people in check and on the plantation.
What better way to control Black pastors who are dependent upon government financing than bringing the IRS along. Not only is that draconian, it is a foot up the arses of pastors and the Black community. H/t The Blaze.
The same preachers who kowtowed to Obama’s gay marriage agenda will now dutifully preach Marxist propaganda and fear mongering from their pulpits every Sunday morning forcing Obama kool-aid down the throats of their congregants.
Do not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. Exodus 34:14
These overseers of the Obama plantation will be further charged with leading their congregants down the fiery path to hell right along with them.
Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you; Deuteronomy 6:14
Wake up Black America. It is no longer just your freedom that is at stake but your soul.
“Earlier today, a few of us Tea Party “sons of bitches” decided to call on the ‘debunked’ progressive propagandists at Media Matters for America (MMFA) to ask them to produce their latest IRS 990 form–the tax document that non-profit organizations are required to file annually with the IRS to maintain their tax-free status.
Unlike other tax-exempt organizations that make their latest IRS filings easily available at their own websites (such as the Media Research Center, for example), MMFA apparently wants the public to find that information for itself. Since the most recent available IRS 990 filing from MMFA covers 2009, we decided to see if they had any more recent information to provide us…”
Vodpod videos no longer available.
No doubt such a congenial visit has left propagandist, Media Matters, stinging.
If walls could talk. I bet these propagandists were buzzing all day overe such a bold visit by Conservatives. A great moment for the right that will no doubt send Marxists into a rage.

- We have lowered our long-term sovereign credit rating on the United
States of America to ‘AA+’ from ‘AAA’ and affirmed the ‘A-1+’ short-term
- · We have also removed both the short- and long-term ratings from
- · The downgrade reflects our opinion that the fiscal consolidation plan
that Congress and the Administration recently agreed to falls short of
what, in our view, would be necessary to stabilize the government’s
medium-term debt dynamics.
- · More broadly, the downgrade reflects our view that the effectiveness,
stability, and predictability of American policymaking and political
institutions have weakened at a time of ongoing fiscal and economic
challenges to a degree more than we envisioned when we assigned a
negative outlook to the rating on April 18, 2011…”
Question: How many times can the United States of America find itself in a state embarrassment in one week?
Less than five days after weeks of humiliating exhibitions by Progressive politicians, the inept one and the lame stream media that belittled the United States in the eyes of the world, that which the ratings companies have been warning us about for months has finally transpired, i.e., the USA’s credit rating has finally been relegated from AAA status to AA.
“…The move came less than a week after a gridlocked Congress finally agreed to spending cuts that would reduce the debt by more than $2 trillion — a tumultuous process that contributed to convulsions in financial markets. The promised cuts were not enough to satisfy S&P.
The drop in the rating by one notch to AA-plus was telegraphed as a possibility back in April. The three main credit agencies, which also include Moody’s Investor Service and Fitch, had warned during the budget fight that if Congress did not cut spending far enough, the country faced a downgrade. Moody’s said it was keeping its AAA rating on the nation’s debt, but that it might still lower it…”
In spite of the fact that Progressives who lost the House in November but continues to hold the Senate and Executive Office are primarily responsible, they will blame the incompetency and failure on Republicans, the Tea Party and Bush43 (again).
According to John Boehner, this latest snag is “the latest consequence of overspending by Washington.” Boehner is dead-on.
Of course, we can expect endless finger-pointing and nasty assaults by the Marxists self-aggrandizing thugs who have strived from day one to eradicate capitalism thereby collapsing the U.S. economy. They are no doubt celebrating this downgrade as they blame others for that which they themselves are guilty.
A$$hat Harry Reid spouts that the downgrade by S&P shows “the need for a ‘balanced approach to deficit reduction that combines spending cuts with revenue-raising measures.”
Reid is just one of many who should be in prison.
One congressional representative suggested the following, to which I agree:
“GOP Rep. Jack Kingston has called on Congress to reconvene to fix the debt crisis, saying the downgrade ‘confirms my belief that the debt ceiling increase signed into law this week does not go far enough to change the nation’s fiscal trajectory.”
This week’s decision and backroom dealings on the debt ceiling, which left no one pleased, is a catastrophe and disservice to the nation. The creation of a super-congress is nothing short of unconstitutional. The wrongs must be undone.
Those pushing their socialist agenda are blind to the truth that socialism is a failure as repeatedly proven by history.
In furtherance, all that has transpired this summer by corrupt politicians/bureaucrats and cohorts did not transpire by happenstance.
The foretold downgrade occurred on Barack Obama’s watch; therefore, the inept one owns it.
CUT, CAP AND BALANCE.
P.S. Many of the Progressive idiots that surround me here in the overly socialist environment known as NYC who for years have been calling for the demise of capitalism, are mortified at this recent turn of events. Go figure.
