Barack Obama, our next President

Top IRS official takes the Fifth: what it means
May 22, 2013
Now it’s getting interesting.
Lois Lerner, head of the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt filings, will take the Fifth in front of Congress tomorrow.
She won’t answer questions. She won’t say, for example, why she never informed Congress that she knew there was criminal fiddling going on at the IRS, where employees “gave extra scrutiny” to tea party, conservative, patriot, and other groups during the application process.
Instead, as the DOJ launches a criminal investigation, Lerner will tell the House Oversight Committee,“I decline to answer. I invoke my Fifth Amendment right.” Multiple times she will say this.
Meaning:“If I answer, I could incriminate myself.”
Her lawyer, William Taylor, has asked the Committee to excuse Lerner from testifying tomorrow, Wednesday, since she won’t be answering questions. Taylor wrote to the House Committee,“[Forcing her to testify would] have no other purpose other than to embarrass or burden her.”
Tsk, tsk. Mustn’t embarrass a person who has committed crimes. Be nice. Be kind. Yes, Lois Lerner failed to tell the Committee anything about IRS crimes, when she testified four times last year, but so what? Give her a break. Goodness gracious, don’t put her through an ordeal.
Somehow, Lerner’s lawyer’s logic doesn’t stand up. But he’s a lawyer, so that’s no surprise.
Then there was this: a presidential election last year. 2012? Obama? Remember?
If Lois Lerner had blown the whistle then, and the full-blown scandal that’s erupting now had occurred before the election, who knows who would have won the presidency.
Lois was obviously protecting a 'president' running to win a second term. She’s “pre-taking” the Fifth now and hoping she won’t have to appear before the Committee tomorrow, so the Soetoro/Obama regime won’t have to risk hearing a Congressman ask, WERE YOU PROTECTING THE 'PRESIDENT' FROM SCANDAL IN AN ELECTION YEAR?
WERE YOU LYING SO OBAMA COULD WIN REELECTION?
Ahem…the Fifth Amendment wasn’t designed for that purpose. It was designed so a person wouldn’t have to incriminate himself/herself. The Fifth doesn’t exist to protect someone else from scandal.
We get it, Lois. We get what you’re up to...

The committee should have questioned her all day (and tomorrow) and let her continue to refuse to answer.
Agree, they should have made her invoke her 5th Amendment right each time a question was asked? They should have questioned her all day.

Last week you claimed that Lerner was a criminal who was being promoted by Obama to head the government department implementing Obamacare. Galt is confused or doesn't know what he's talking about.

One more time....

When she gave an opening statement she technically waved her right [to claim the fifth].I didn't think I needed to state the obvious as her claiming the fifth was the topic.

When you claim the fifth; you cannot make statements.

When she gave an opening statement she waived her right.

I would never give Lerner immunity. She engaged in the same behavior at FEC asking Christian groups about who prayed for them.

Gosnell committed infanticide, no different than other late-term abortionists liked the sainted Dr. Tiller. Too bad some idiot killed Tiller instead of throwing his ass in prison.
Infanticide is illegal and more prosecutions like that of Gosnell should be conducted.
Galt thinks women who have abortions are totally immoral and lacking in ethics, but those are not crimes. One cannot legislate ethics.
You're an insensitive , immoral asshat if you can compare Gosnell with Dr. Tiller . No wonder you don't get any dates with real women( Do you cut overtime wages for your blow-up koopie-doll too?)

Of course not. However, my specific discipline requires an intense study of the Earth. If a grain of sand is added to the beach, then the beach has been changed. How significant the impact of human activity is, nobody knows.
But, there are clues here and there, like the so-called "scientists" who are attempting to prove human significance in global warming being so convinced they were wrong that they invented fraudulent evidence to support their caser.
That's just a clue to a scientist that they don't really believe what they, themselves, are saying.

Making a statement is not the same as taking the stand. In court proceedings both, the defendant or lawyer, & the prosecutor make opening statements. Neither are taking the stand therefore, not subject to the 5th amendment laws at that time. Had she taken the stand & pled her innocence, then when asked questions pertaining the case tried to invoke her 5th amendment right, she couldn't because she already had given them up when she took the stand & testified to her innocence. Therefore she would be forced by law to answer the questions or suffer a jail cell until she does answer them!
