Then “The One” said,“I am the “the One”- The Messiah – and I am here to save you! We shall just print
more money so everyone will have enough!” But our foreign trading partners said unto Him.“Wait a minute.
Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have to pay more…And “The One” said,“Wait a minute.
That is unfair!!”
And the world said,“Neither are these other idiotic programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a
Socialist state and a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!”
And the people cried out,“Alas, alas!! What have we done?”
But yea verily, it was too late. The people set upon The One and spat upon him and stoned him, and his name
was dung. And the once mighty nation was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or
shelter or hope. And the Change “The One” had given them was as like unto a poison that had destroyed them
and like a whirlwind that consumed all that they had built.
And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish,“Give us back our nation and our pride
and our hope!!” But it was too late, and their homeland was no more.
You may think this a fairy tale, but it is not. It’s happening RIGHT NOW

McCain and Romney have this in common: they are honest enough to not cheat in elections.

The Magic Negro has always fought efforts to clean up elections. His illegal Mexicans came to his aid and the Black Panthers, ACORN and every Federal Agency was corrupted to further his election chances.

The Hood mentality reigns supreme inside of Socialist Circles of the White House.

Long ago, way back there in Chicago and Illinois politics, it was publicly stated that whoever loses against the Magic Negro does so because of their being honest.

It still holds true at this moment.

OBAMA IS A LIAR NO TRUTH

JOSH GERSTEIN | 6/17/13 4:49 PM EDT

President Barack Obama used a television interview set to air Monday night to defend his administration’s use of far-reaching surveillance programs as carefully supervised and controlled.

Obama also appeared to reject comparisons between himself and Vice President Dick Cheney, who strongly backed similar surveillance efforts in the George W. Bush administration and has defended Obama’s continuation of national security-related programs similar in many respects to those pursued by the previous administration.

“Some people say,‘Well, you know, Obama was this raving liberal before. Now he’s, you know, Dick Cheney.’ Dick Cheney sometimes says,‘Yeah, you know? He took it all lock, stock, and barrel,’” the president told interviewer Charlie Rose in the exchange recorded Sunday, according to excerpts of the transcript published by BuzzFeed.“My concern has always been not that we shouldn’t do intelligence gathering to prevent terrorism, but rather are we setting up a system of checks and balances?”

(PHOTOS: Pols, pundits weigh in on NSA report)

In an interview that’s been heavily promoted by the White House and Obama aides, the president acknowledged that a program which collects massive amounts of data on telephone calls made in or through the U.S. could theoretically be used to invade individuals’ privacy, even potentially yielding conclusions about callers’ health conditions.

“All of that is true. Except for the fact that for the government, under the program right now, to do that, it would be illegal. We would not be allowed to do that,” the president said, according to a transcript.“The number of requests are surprisingly small.....Folks don’t go with a query unless they’ve got a pretty good suspicion.”

Barack Obama: Well, in the end, and what I’ve said, and I continue to believe, is that we don’t have to sacrifice our freedom in order to achieve security. That’s a false choice. That doesn’t mean that there are not tradeoffs involved in any given program, in any given action that we take. So all of us make a decision that we go through a whole bunch of security at airports, which when we were growing up that wasn’t the case…. And so that’s a tradeoff we make, the same way we make a tradeoff about drunk driving. We say,“Occasionally there are going to be checkpoints. They may be intrusive.” To say there’s a tradeoff doesn’t mean somehow that we’ve abandoned freedom. I don’t think anybody says we’re no longer free because we have checkpoints at airports.

Charlie Rose: But there is a balance here.

Barack Obama: But there is a balance, so I’m going to get to your — get to your question. The way I view it, my job is both to protect the American people and to protect the American way of life, which includes our privacy. And so every program that we engage in, what I’ve said is “Let’s examine and make sure that we’re making the right tradeoffs.” Now, with respect to the NSA, a government agency that has been in the intelligence gathering business for a very long time —

Charlie Rose: Bigger and better than everybody else.

Barack Obama: Bigger and better than everybody else, and we should take pride in that because they’re extraordinary professionals; they are dedicated to keeping the American people safe. What I can say unequivocally is that if you are a U.S. person, the NSA cannot listen to your telephone calls, and the NSA cannot target your emails … and have not. They cannot and have not, by law and by rule, and unless they — and usually it wouldn’t be “they,” it’d be the FBI — go to a court, and obtain a warrant, and seek probable cause, the same way it’s always been, the same way when we were growing up and we were watching movies, you want to go set up a wiretap, you got to go to a judge, show probable cause….

So point number one, if you’re a U.S. person, then NSA is not listening to your phone calls and it’s not targeting your emails unless it’s getting an individualized court order. That’s the existing rule. There are two programs that were revealed by Mr. Snowden, allegedly, since there’s a criminal investigation taking place, and they caused all the ruckus. Program number one, called the 2015 Program, what that does is it gets data from the service providers like a Verizon in bulk, and basically you have call pairs. You have my telephone number connecting with your telephone number. There are no names. There is no content in that database. All it is, is the number pairs, when those calls took place, how long they took place. So that database is sitting there. Now, if the NSA through some other sources, maybe through the FBI, maybe through a tip that went to the CIA, maybe through the NYPD. Get a number that where there’s a reasonable, articulable suspicion that this might involve foreign terrorist activity related to Al-Qaeda and some other international terrorist actors. Then, what the NSA can do is it can query that database to see did any of the — did this number pop up? Did they make any other calls? And if they did, those calls will be spit out. A report will be produced. It will be turned over to the FBI. At no point is any content revealed because there’s no content that —

Charlie Rose: So I hear you saying, I have no problem with what NSA has been doing.

Barack Obama: Well, let me — let me finish, because I don’t. So, what happens is that the FBI — if, in fact, it now wants to get content; if, in fact, it wants to start tapping that phone — it’s got to go to the FISA court with probable cause and ask for a warrant.

Charlie Rose?!!

Charlie Rose is just about as manipulative and disingenuous as the audio editors over at CBS. He wears kneepads whenever he's with 500' of the Magic Negro.

Of course the Boy Messiah would pick ol' Charlie to handle a good propaganda spread.

WASHINGTON — An Internal Revenue Service supervisor in Washington says she was personally involved in scrutinizing some of the earliest applications from Tea Party groups seeking tax-exempt status, including some requests that languished for more than a year without action.

Holly Paz, who until recently was a top deputy in the division that handles applications for tax-exempt status, told congressional investigators she reviewed 20 to 30 applications. Her assertion contradicts initial claims by the agency that a small group of agents working in an office in Cincinnati were solely responsible for mishandling the applications.

Paz, however, provided no evidence that senior IRS officials ordered agents to target conservative groups or that anyone in the Obama administration outside the IRS was involved.

Instead, Paz described an agency in which IRS supervisors in Washington worked closely with agents in the field but didn’t fully understand what those agents were doing. Paz said agents in Cincinnati openly talked about handling “Tea Party” cases, but she thought the term was merely shorthand for all applications from groups that were politically active — conservative and liberal.

GOP In ‘Death Spiral’; Will Fail in 2016 Without Immigration

Paz said dozens of Tea Party applications sat untouched for more than a year while field agents waited for guidance from Washington on how to handle them. At the time, she said, Washington officials thought the agents in Cincinnati were processing the cases.

Paz was among the first IRS employees to be interviewed as part of a joint investigation by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee.

Congressional investigators have interviewed at least six IRS employees as part of their inquiry. The Associated Press has reviewed transcripts from three interviews — with Paz and with two agents, Gary Muthert and Elizabeth Hofacre, from the Cincinnati office.

The IRS declined comment for this story.

A yearlong audit by the agency’s inspector general found that IRS agents had improperly targeted conservative political groups for additional and sometimes onerous scrutiny when those groups applied for tax-exempt status.

The audit found no evidence that Washington officials ordered or authorized the targeting. But the IRS watchdog blamed ineffective management by senior IRS officials for allowing it to continue for nearly two years during the 2010 and 2012 elections.

Since the revelations became public last month, much of the agency’s leadership has been replaced and the Justice Department has started a criminal investigation. Both Paz and her supervisor, Lois Lerner, who headed the division that handles applications for tax-exempt status, have been replaced.

Agency officials told congressional aides that Lerner was placed on administrative leave. They did not disclose the status Paz, other than to say she was replaced June 7.

Lerner is the IRS official who first disclosed the targeting at a legal conference May 10. That day, she told The AP:“It’s the line people that did it without talking to managers. They’re IRS workers, they’re revenue agents.”
IF THE AVERAGE JOE HAD DONE THIS THEIR ASS WOULD GO
TO JAIL!!!!!!!!!!HOWEVER NOT EVERONE IS ABOVE THE LAW LIKE OBAMA AND ALL YOU OBAMA VOTERS YOUR ASS WOULD ALSO WENT TO JAIL!!!!!!

The Magic Negro has increasingly become irrelevant on the world stage. China, Russia, India and others are sitting down to hammer out a new global currency kicking the Dollar to the curb.

China is divvying up the China Sea into a fruit bowl for itself. The countries in the area looked over to the Magic Negro for Western guidance and saw that he was busy with Al Green, Gay Marriage and Trayvon Martin. Clueless Jerk that he is, China and Russia are riding roughshod over him and laughing in private.

The Boy Messiah is not even a player in Syria. He's a has-been. When he lectured the EU about how to handle an economic crisis, they all nodded at him, smiled cordially and then proceeded to tell him nicely to go screw himself.

He's still trying. And succeeding.

The IRS, the NSA, the FBI and local cops can dig into everybody's business Carte Blanche but State Elections Officers cannot be allowed to determine if Jose and his 16 children are here illegally and whether or not they should be allowed to vote for the Magic Negro or his appointees in fixed elections.

Something is very wrong.

That would be Politically Incorrect.

If you are a teacher and not paying SS taxes, then you are a tax cheat, plain and simple.
Wrong again stupid! When Social Security was enacted it applied only to private sector employees and excluded those in the private sector, like teachers, police, firefighters, etc. In the 1950's the law was changed so that states could, on a voluntary basis and by referendum place their public sector workers into the federal system or retain their independent retirement systems. There are 14 states which have opted to retain state retirement systems.
Public sector workers who have an independent retirement system don't pay into Social Security but then again they don't collect on it either. So how are they tax cheats dimwit?
But thank you for demonstrating once again how abysmally ignorant you are.

Once again you are full of sh*t.

To dig into everyone's business would require a court order.

If you don't want your picture with the State, don't get a driver's license.

The supermarket knows what you buy because you use a "bonus card".

As for the Republican's voter suppression in AZ: "But a lawsuit brought by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund revealed that registration applications from 31,000 prospective voters were turned down by Arizona because they did not have driver's licenses or U.S. passports. Ninety percent of them were citizens born in the United States."

Nevermind, I'm trying to reason with a liberal.
This isn't the first time you've trotted out that blatant distortion of what Hillary Clinton said Carol, totally ignoring the whole statement and using an out of context snippet. Here's the whole statement made before the Senate Intelligence Committee;
"With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator. Now, honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. The IC has a process, I understand, going with the other committees to explain how these talking points came out. But you know, to be clear, it is, from my perspective, less important today looking backwards as to why these militants decided they did it than to find them and bring them to justice, and then maybe we’ll figure out what was going on in the meantime."
So Carol, are you just lazy or intellectually dishonest?
