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 […]

Paul Ryan BLASTS IRS Commissioner John Koskinen: “I don’t believe you!”

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. In what can only be described as controlled rage, GOP Rep. from Wisconsin, and former Vice Presidential Candidate, Paul Ryan let IRS Commissioner John Koskinen have it with both barrels. “I’m sitting here, listening to this testimony, I don’t believe it,” Ryan said. “That’s your problem. Nobody believes you,” he said flatly to Koskinen. “The Internal Revenue Service comes to us a couple years ago and misleads us and tells us no targeting is occurring. Then it said it was a few rogue agents in Cincinnati. Then it said it was also on progressives. All of those […]

Schumer used IRS as his own personal hit sqaud

Senator Charles “Chucky Schmucky” Schumer, D NY is alleged to have used the IRS as his own personal “hit squad.” Did Chuck Schumer try to use the IRS to sidestep the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling — and stick a dagger in the heart of conservative groups? That’s the gist of a complaint filed this week with the Senate Select Committee on Ethics. In Citizens United, the court held that bans on independent political expenditures by corporations, associations and labor unions are bans on speech. Evidently Chucky was enough of a dim-bulb to leave a paper trail by way of […]

Obama EPA’s new regulations – killing a job near you

Some Things to Know About Obama’s New EPA Regulations Hat/Tip to Katie Pavlich at TownHall.com . “We don’t need no steenking cap and trade!!!,” said Barack Obama when asked whether or not he would be able to strangle the coal industry and further eliminate American jobs without Congress passing his signature Cap & Trade legislation. Yes, he has a pen and a phone, and soon we won’t have jobs and electricity. When asked about this, Obama said, “Let them surf the web in candlelight.” But seriously, folks. President Obama is going ahead with Cap & Trade policies even though his […]

Caught On Tape: Security Guard Viciously Attacks Disabled Student

As reported by CBS. Oakland School Security Guard Seen Hitting Student In Wheelchair, Dumping Him On Floor In Oakland, CA a high school security guard attacked freshman Francisco Martinez, handcuffing him, beating him several times about the head and dumping him on the floor. The beating was so bad that only when another security guard intervened did the attack come to an end. According to a letter from Oakland High School principal Matin Abdel-Qawi to parents, a student in a wheelchair was lingering in a hallway as security officers urged them to get to class on May 19. One security officer […]

The Other Guy Blinked: IRS Backs Down – for now

The Obama administration has definitely been on the ropes for most of his second term. This week has been no different for Obama. His IRS agency has been forced to back down after threatening to go toe to toe with the Tea Party. The IRS has agreed to overhaul a controversial proposal that Republican lawmakers warned would revive the agency’s “harassment and intimidation” of conservative groups, after receiving a record number of comments on the proposed regulation.  The new rules have been in the works ever since the IRS came under fire for its targeting of Tea Party and other […]

Obama Administration Plans to use Military Force Against US Citizens

Hat/Tip to the Washington Times. The Obama administration has put in place a plan authorizing the use of Military force against United States Citizens. Presidential Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities,” was issued Dec. 29, 2010, and states that U.S. commanders “are provided emergency authority under this directive.” A 2010 Pentagon directive on military support to civilian authorities details what critics say is a troubling policy that envisions the Obama administration’s potential use of military force against Americans. The directive contains noncontroversial provisions on support to civilian fire and emergency services, special events and the domestic use of […]

Forget About Your Hard-Earned Honors Awards in Rhode Island

A middle school in East Greenwich, Rhode Island has cancelled the time honored tradition of “Honors Night”.  It might hurt the feelings of some: “members of the school community have long expressed concerns related to the exclusive nature of Honors Night,”  Isn’t that the point?  I mean really.  The honor roll is for students that worked hard and achieved a certain grade point average.  At least that is what I always led to believe.  I guess it has changed since I left school. Oh, but have no fear the students will indeed get their moment in the sun with “team […]

The Dumbing Down Of the America’s Black Community Continues

Editor’s Note: Let me warmly welcome Kim from just a conservative girl to our awesome staff here at CH 2.0! ~~~~~~~~~~ I came across an article today on our very sad public education system in our country.  What is the most bothersome about the article is how little respect for the black community this administration seems to have.  I think I have made it quite clear that I am no fan of Bush’s No Child Left Behind initiative.  Well it seems that we have left it behind.  But the one thing that I will say in favor of it is […]

Teacher Caught on Camera Grabbing Kindergartner By His Face; You Won’t Believe Her ‘Punishment’

Hat/Tip Independent Journal Review. We send our children to school in order that they get an education. We also have the expectation that our schools will keep our children safe while they are in their care. However, that was not the case with one little 6 year old boy whose only crime was going to the bathroom. Okay, so here’s the scenario: A teacher comes across a kindergartner leaving the bathroom. She grabs the 6-year-old boy by his face and pins him against the wall in an apparent fit of anger. But she doesn’t stop there. She then picks up the little guy […]

FEC Chair Vows to Fight FEC Liberals Wanting to Regulate Conservative Media: Selective Enforcement

Federal Elections Commission Chairman Lee Goodman said he believes there are “impulses in government every day,” (he specifically said “the left,)” to “look into the editorial decisions of conservative publishers.” Goodman is vowing to keep the media and internet free,” but his chairmanship expires in December 2014. “The right has begun to break the left’s media monopoly, particularly through new media outlets like the internet, and I sense that some on the left are starting to rethink the breadth of the media exemption and internet communications,” he added. Noting the success of sites like the Drudge Report, Goodman said that protecting […]

A Visit To A Gun Show Reveals Why Liberals Are Way Off When It Comes To Gun Control

When it comes to liberal talking points about gun control, you’ve heard it all before. Michael Bloomberg paid for a ad for McAuiliffe’s gubernatorial bid against Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia. NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s $1.1 million anti-gun advertisement buy for Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Terry McAuiliffe. Bloomberg funneled the money into Virginia through his PAC, USA Independence and advertisements have been running on radio and television since Tuesday. One television ad in particular targets the “gun show loophole” and states in a voiceover, “The gun show loophole. It means anyone can buy a gun without a background check.” Read the full […]

Texas Boy Scouts: BLM Eyeing Our Camp

Hat/Tip www.teaparty.org The Cliven Bundy vs BLM incident may be serving to awaken us to what amounts to a land-grab by the BLM. (Breitbart) – With the focus on the possible loss of property held for generations of ranchland owners in north Texas, others who might also be affected by the BLM’s Red River Land Grab could be overlooked. During a meeting with Texas State Senator Craig Estes (R-Wichita Falls), Breitbart Texas learned that land owned by the Northwest Texas Council of the Boy Scouts of America is also reportedly being targeted by the BLM land management study. Boy Scout […]

Bundy Ranch: BLM Has Authority to Auction Public Lands – Harry Reid Has Power To Be First In Line

Speculations about the reasons for the BLM raid on Cliven Bundy’s ranch and property has gone in about every direction but one. Tortoises, solar plants, mining and disdain for an old rancher who was the last man standing after his neighbors had been bought out, were on our check list, but what if Bundy’s property, and that very near it, maybe even overlooking it, is in the way of upscale scenic housing developments? Read the full story at CanadaFreePress.com Steve Miller is a “former land developer, and later a member of City of Las Vegas and Clark County land boards.” […]
