Barack Obama, our next President

The new study discovers that changes in the amount of summertime sunlight striking the Northern Hemisphere due to the changes in the Earth's orbital orientation towards the sun is chiefly responsible for the recent alteration between Ice Ages and warmer periods like the one we are currently in. From the studies press release:
"During the warmest period of the Holocene, the Earth was positioned such that Northern Hemisphere summers warmed more," [Shaun] Marcott,[lead author of OSU] said. "As Earth's orientation changed, Northern Hemisphere summers became cooler, and we now should near the bottom of this long term cooling trend - but obviously, we are not."
If we are near the bottom of a cooling trend & have registered 338 consecutive months of above average global temperature, I'd say we'll be in big trouble as this cooling effect due to orientations starts heading in the warming trend direction.

Lois Lerner statement, made prior to invoking the Fifth:
“I have not done anything wrong. I have not broken any laws. I have not violated any IRS rules or regulations. And I have not provided false information to this or any other congressional committee.”
This is testimony.
So, what is she afraid of?
And is she potentially guilty of perjury regardless of her later invocation of the Fifth Amendment?
If Lerner broke any laws, or violated any IRS rules or regulations, or provided any false information, then she is guilty of perjury.
Exactly.

Well, she may have said she wanted to use the 5th Amendment rights, but she didn't really do that. She actually made a statement about her participation in the criminal activity.
She should have remained silent. After all, that is what the 5th Amendment grants.
I say, find the highest level of documentation that even acknowledges the activity, then put that person on trial and sentence them to a billion goddam years, then let's see who they roll over on.
You understand what you just wrote? You wrote," she have a statement." Do you understand now? She gave a statement, she didn't testify. The 5th amendment is implied so one isn't forced to testify against ones best interest. Key word, "TESTIFY." NOT MAKING A STATEMENT!

I recall you mindlessly repeating the Obama lie about some demonstration that never happened caused the attack that killed Stevens even after it became obvious to everyone in the world it was a lie.
Yes, things would be a lot better if the people who called themselves "liberal" were actually liberal and not radical conservatives with medieval concept of bondage under an elitist governing class. And if anything the so-called "progressives" touched actually progressed instead of regress.

Testifying is nothing more than making statements.
She had the right to remain silent. She should have used it. She didn't. She made a statement during testimony.
Let's make that simple for you idiots: She testified.

Lois Lerner Shows Why Obama Needs to Get Rid of All Remaining Bush Appointees

Pleading the fifth is evidence of guilt if you have the bad fortune to work under the Obama administration, but the same folks will defend your right to plead the fifth if you happen to be working under a Republican president.

....if she has any political persuasion, it would seem to be Republican, based on her appointment by the Bush administration (infamous for politicizing government).

Hysteria is the way of the Right. The Daily Caller made a fool of itself the other day, with Patrick Howley claiming that Lerner’s husband’s law firm had strong Obama connections (read: Marxist, Kenyan Hitler, Nixon, Chicago “connections”):“Embattled IRS official Lois Lerner’s husband’s law firm has strong Obama connections.”

Um, no. But nice try. Walter Olson at Overlawywered broke it down, and it looks like her husband’s law firm gave more to Republicans, with Republican Ted Cruz raking in $16,250 from his lawyers. Olson concluded,“‘Embattled IRS official Lois Lerner’s husband’s law firm has strong Ted Cruz connections’ would have made for too confusing a headline on a Daily Caller lead story.” Yes, we mustn’t let the facts get in the way of the Narrative.

What I’ve taken from all of these scandals so far is that by Republicans refusing to allow Obama his own nominees, they’ve saddled him with their appointees, who may or may not have an agenda and may or may not be utterly incompetent. That’s a nifty game. So now Bush appointee Lois Lerner, who claims to be “nonpolitical” but yet donated the maximum amount to Romney if this Open Secrets note is the right Lois Lerner, is the Obama administration’s undoing according to Republicans.

I am only sorry Lois Lerner is pleading the fifth, because I’d really like someone to ask her why she “let this slip” at a Bar Association meeting, and upon what evidence she based this “slip”.

The Daily Beast said that Lerner “acknowledged that the influx in tax-exempt applications starting in 2010 is what sparked the heightened scrutiny. The admission raises the question of whether Lerner had the opportunity to help clean up what has become a messy campaign-contribution system and, if so, why she instead is cleaning up the mess of a field office that supposedly went rogue.” You see why we should be asking some questions.

I’d like to ask her if she or anyone in her office was the “source” for several media outlets reporting that conservatives were “targeted” as fact. Then again, no one in the House was going to ask Lerner these questions, because they don’t serve the Republican narrative.

So, nobody can explain with the radical conservatives today call themselves "liberals", and why the self-described "progressives" cause everything they touch to regress.
