IRS DOES Have Lois Lerner’s emails, Says Too “Onerous” to Search For Them

  The IRS Does Have Copies of Lois Lerner’s emails, but It’s “Too Onerous” To Search Them? Remember when the Obama Administration said they lost Lois Lerner’s emails? Yeah, that was a lie. Department of Justice attorneys for the Internal Revenue Service told Judicial Watch on Friday that Lois Lerner’s emails, indeed all government computer records, are backed up by the federal government in case of a government-wide catastrophe. The Obama administration attorneys said that this back-up system would be too onerous to search. The DOJ attorneys also acknowledged that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is investigating this […]

Liberal Logic: Ignore/Deny Lives Saved with Legal Guns

If we’ve learned anything about liberal logic over the last five years here at the CH 2.0, we’ve learned that the principle enemy of liberalism is reality.  Reality shows that global cooling global warming climate change The Big Lie is exactly that.  Real life experiences of the victims of ObamaCare show that the people were not able to keep their insurance or doctors.  The evidence is staggering that welfare programs promote more poverty.  I could go on forever, but you get the  point.  When confronted by their enemy, liberals resort to any of four main tactics… 1.  Lie and deny.  […]

Manhattan Infidel Presents a Job Listing: Can You Destroy Evidence for the IRS?

Here at the worldwide headquarters of Manhattan Infidel I often find myself wondering about my readers.  Are they happy?  Are they employed? Do they have naked photos they might want to share? Okay so I lied about the first one and as for the naked photos I am currently prohibited from looking at any naked photos sent to me (the terms of my parole are very strict).  But jobs?  I think I can help with that.  I want all of my readers employed so they can pay their utility bill and continue to browse the internet. And so, without further adieu I now […]

Obama helpfully reminds school districts of their obligation to educate all illegal alien kids

President Golfpants took time out from boogying with the Clintons to unleash yet another Executive Order from his omnipresent pen. This one comes via the Secretary of Education, to helpfully remind school districts of their statutory obligation to educate all those children waltzing across the Mexican border, regardless of their “immigration status.” The Obama administration is preparing the nation’s schools to accept thousands of new students who illegally crossed the southwest border and are now awaiting trials on their possible deportations. A fact sheet from the Department of Education sent to states and schools on Monday highlights the children’s right […]

Change, Intervention, and Dependency

The concept of the government “solving” all the problems of the world has crept into our society over time. With every new program, every new entitlement, the public has  gradually become accustomed to the government solving the ills of the world. And what of fact that the government seemed to make all of these problems worse? Well, that’s neglected. After all, the government is taking care of it-I don’t have to worry about it, right? Starting with the “progressive” movement in the late 19th century and accelerating greatly since the great depression, the government has vastly increased it’s meddling in […]

Obama Steps Up Deportations – of Land Rovers…

Finally, an illegal alien Obama’s DHS will seize and deport – a Land Rover Defender They can’t stop the flood of illegal aliens waltzing in from Mexico. And they’ve never caught a terrorist in an airport. But, fear not, because Obama’s crack DHS storm troopers are locked and loaded, mobilizing on a moment’s notice to pounce on a threat more sinister than you could ever imagine — Old Land Rovers. When Jennifer Brinkley saw a line of law enforcement vehicles coming up her driveway last Tuesday she didn’t know what to think. “I haven’t done anything wrong.” The Homeland Security […]

Trey Gowdy: What if a Judge Says ‘Let’s Go Give This Guilty Bastard a Trial?’ MUST See Video

  Hat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network. When one sees Trey Gowdy in action, one is immediately reminded of a pit bull – tenacious, dangerous and of a single purpose – the destruction of his opponent. At Wednesday’s House hearing regarding the Obama IRS targeting scandal, Rep. Trey Gowdy put a Democrat Party-invited University of Baltimore law professor through the wringer in classic Gowdy form. The South Carolina congressman’s line of questioning was geared toward making the case that the Obama-Holder Department of Justice has been compromised and cannot be trusted to investigate the Obama IRS scandal in which […]

New Emails: Lois Lerner Referred to Conservatives as ‘***holes’ and ‘TeRrorists’

Hat/Tip to CNSNews.com. Even though former IRS Commissioner Steve Miller testified that there was no political animus towards Tea Party & Conservative groups, emails have surfaced showing what we all already knew. A newly discovered email exchange from Lois Lerner’s official IRS email account “directly demonstrates Ms. Lerner’s deep animus towards conservatives, which she refers to as ‘—holes,’” House Ways and Means Committee Chair Dave Camp wrote in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday. She evidently views those of us on the right as terrorists. In that Nov. 9, 2012 email, Lerner further suggests that conservatives will […]

How to Destroy a Hard Drive: IRS Edition – Must See Video

During testimony about Lois Lerner’s hard drive, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said, “I assume there’s a lot of ways that hard drives can get scratched.” After The Daily Caller reported last week that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer hard drive was “scratched” and then “shredded,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen testified before Congress that “I assume there’s a lot of ways that hard drives can get scratched.” Koskinen might technically be right about that, but he left out one detail: it’s a really difficult thing to do. In director Grae Stafford’s latest, The Daily Caller destroys a hard drive. SURGEON GENERAL WARNING: […]

Mark Levin’s Legal Foundation Takes on the EPA

Hat/Tip to Susan Jones of CNSNews.com. Lawsuit Seeks Damages From EPA, ‘A Toxic Waste Dump of Lawlessness’ If I were the EPA, I’d be worried. Mark Levin is an amazing intellect and his knowledge of our Constitution is almost beyond compare. A conservative legal group is asking a federal judge to punish the Environmental Protection Agency for destroying or failing to preserve emails and text messages requested in August 2012 under the Freedom of Information Act. The Landmark Legal Foundation believes the requested — but never delivered — messages to outside groups would have revealed EPA attempts to influence the […]

Why Are Illegal Immigrants So Special To The TSA?

This is something I really can not comprehend or fathom. Since the terrible attacks on 9-11, Americans have faced increased scrutiny and security when they travel. Focused mainly at airports, Americans have been subjected to everything in between taking off their shoes and having their persons searched in a very intrusive manner. Some have even went through the body scanners that anyone who has traveled loves to hate. The indignities have been great and what many of us would call unAmerican. That’s what makes this story so frustrating. We are all aware of what has been going on at our […]

Daily Kos Laments that Klingon Disruptors can be “purchased and carried anywhere in Georgia! “

OK, maybe it wasn’t a Klingon Disruptor, but the Kossacks really stepped in it when they decided to run a story about the guns that could be purchased and carried in Georgia.

IRS Announces it Needs Help Destroying Evidence

Oh, my mistake! When I said that the IRS needs help destroying evidence, I meant 3200 hard drives! Amazing how something like that could slip out.

GOP Congressman Files Arrest Resolution for Lois Lerner

Hat/Tip to Jason Howerton of The Blaze. It’s about time. Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) announced on Thursday that he has filed a resolution directing the House sergeant-at-arms to “arrest Lois Lerner for contempt of Congress” over the IRS targeting scandal. Stockman said in a statement that asking the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute Lerner for “admittedly illegal activity” is a “joke.” Instead, the Republican said it is up to the U.S. House to “uphold the rule of law and hold accountable those who illegally targeted American citizens for simply having different ideas than the President.” Under the proposed resolution, Lerner […]

Lois Lerner’s Emails Found, Proving She Did Break the Law

Hat/Tip to Conservative Tribune and Allen West Republic. BOMBSHELL: Emails Found That Confirm Lois Lerner DID Illegally Hide Info From Congress Very quietly, right before the July 4th Holiday, and the corresponding long weekend, the IRS submitted thousands of electronic documents to Congress. Late in the afternoon of July 3, just prior to the Independence Day holiday and three-day weekend, the embattled Internal Revenue Service finally provided the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee with over 15,000 electronic documents related to its ongoing investigation of inappropriate IRS targeting of conservative groups. It would seem that a ‘smoking gun’ of sorts […]

Farm Family Make Fun of Obama’s EPA in Must See Video Parody

Hat/Tip to The Blaze and Fox News Insider. Since Obama hasn’t been able to get his aggressive, economy draining agenda through Congress (even though the Democrats control the Senate), he’s using his pen and his phone to tell the EPA to implement his wishes through regulations. But some farmers in Missouri are fighting back through the use of parody to point out the absurdity of what the EPA intends to do. Farmers are hitting back against a rule proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency in what might be considered an unexpected way: with song. In a parody song set to […]

Federal Judge Threatens Outside Experts to Find ‘Lost’ Emails

Hat/Tip to The Washington Examiner. The IRS attorneys are certainly earning their over-priced fees because they are due in court again in front of another federal judge on July 11th. They will have to explain to U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton why the IRS shouldn’t be required to let an outside expert evaluate whether emails on the computer hard drives of former IRS official Lois Lerner and six colleagues really are lost forever, as the agency recently told Congress. Judge Walton is responding to a motion filed by True the Vote, the initiative started by Catherine Engelbrecht. I’m sure […]

Lois Lerner Fights Back – well, sort of

Hat/Tip to Politico. It’s “silly” and “brazen” to think Lois Lerner ‘lost’ her emails on purpose. Yeaaaahhhh, right. Lois Lerner has no records of two years of missing emails and Republican claims that she’s hiding something are “silly,” her lawyer said in his first interview since the controversy around the former IRS official erupted two weeks ago. “She doesn’t know what happened,” lawyer William Taylor III said of the 2011 computer crash that erased two years worth of Lerner’s correspondence. “It’s a little brazen to think she did this on purpose.” Lerner has been silent for more than a year, […]

Enviro-Statists Pull Wool over Supremes’ Eyes – Again

Hat/Tip to The Washington Times. The Flat Earth, No Growth Marxists who keep trying to push Global Climate Warming Change (or whatever they’re calling it this week) on us have done what scores of lefties before them have done – they’ve used the courts to get what they could not obtain legislatively. A fractured Supreme Court on Monday largely upheld the Environmental Protection Agency’s radical rule designed to shut down the power plants that produce the most affordable electricity. The justices continue to accept the EPA’s labeling of carbon dioxide as a “pollutant.” This harmless gas, the agency insists, is […]

Vice President of Computer Company: Lois Lerner’s Emails are NOT Lost

Hat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network. We’ve all heard the commercials for the internet based computer back up services. One of the biggest ones is Carbonite, a company which has backed up more than 100 billion files for its customers and has retrieved or restored more than 7 billion lost files. So if anyone is an expert on lost files, I’d say that Carbonite would qualify in that respect. Vice President of Operations of Carbonite, the popular online computer backup company, Jim Flynne spoke to TPNN’s Tim Constantine on the “Capitol Hill Show” on Thursday, explaining from a technological […]
