Barack Obama, our next President

New evidence in the IRS Congressional investigation points to the IRS chief counsel, appointed by President Obama, directly involved in seeking more information about the political activities of Tea Party groups.

The president appointed two IRS officials and chief counsel was one of them. Michael Seto was in charge of a unit that advised front-line agents on processing applications for tax exemptions.

Excerpts of Seto's testimony said the instruction to send Tea Party applications to the chief counsel's office came from Lois Lerner.

Seto said Lerner sent him an e-mail in 2010 explaining that she thought that specific Tea Party cases had to "go through multi-tier review, and they will eventually have to go...to the chief counsel's office."

Carter Hull, a retired lawyer who worked for the IRS for 48 years and was in Seto's unit, told the oversight committee that he was "taken aback" when the chief counsel's office sent two Tea Party cases back to him after several months.

Hull said he was told to forward documents to an adviser for Lerner and then later was directed to send the documents to the Office of Chief Counsel for review. The chief counsel is William Wilkins who Obama appointed to the position in 2009.

At an August 2011 meeting, Hull said, an official in the chief counsel's office told him that additional scrutiny was needed of the Tea Party applicants Hull was looking into and that he should send them another letter requesting additional information.

Several times during his testimony, Hull called the additional layer of review "unusual" — at one point saying he could not recall anything similar during his 48 years at the IRS. There were long delays, he said, because he was waiting for guidance from the chief counsel's office.

He then testified that applications were eventually taken out of his control and forwarded on for "further review," a step he said was "rare."

In a closed session, Hull said he tried to continue working on the Tea Party cases he was given but Lerner said the applications needed to go through the chief counsel's office. It was the first time in his career that he was told to send applications to Lerner's senior adviser who was expected to send them to the chief counsel's office, Hull said.

As someone pointed out today, if it went as high as the Chief Counsel's office, it only had to go one step higher to get to the WH and Barack Obama.

For the Chief Counsel to be this involved without the president's knowledge is hardly possible.

Washington (CNN)– A growing number of Americans believe that senior White House officials ordered the Internal Revenue Service to target conservative political groups, according to a new national poll.

And a CNN/ORC International survey released Tuesday morning also indicates that a majority of the public says the controversy, which involves increased IRS scrutiny of tea party and other conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, is very important to the nation.

Only a Kool-Aid drinker would deny that this is a witchhunt.
FACT: "At this point in the investigation, not one witness who has appeared before the Committee has identified any involvement by any White House officials in the identification or screening of Tea Party applicants for tax exempt status, and the Committee has obtained no documents indicating any such involvement."
FACT: "Darrell Issa and his fellow House Republicans blatantly and knowingly lied about President Obama and the White House being behind the “targeting of conservative groups.” The targeting of conservative groups is another lie, because only 1/3 of the groups targeted were conservative."

"At this point" ??? There is more to come, leftwing loon.

Look moron, even if they can't prove what we all know, that Obama knew, the least they can do is put the Democrats in jail that participated in this corrupt government.

I'm not interested in your distractions, Moonbat.

We can send Obama to jail later.

MARIA BARTIROMO, HOST: Any thoughts on the George Zimmerman verdict?

CHARLES BARKLEY: Well, I agree with the verdict.

BARTIROMO: You did.

BARKLEY: I feel sorry that young kid got killed, but they didn't have enough evidence to charge them. Something clearly went wrong that night. Clearly something went wrong, and I feel bad for anybody who loses a kid. But if you looked at the case and you don't make it - there was some racial profiling, no question about it. But something happened that changed the dynamic of that night. And I know, and that's probably not a popular opinion among most people, but just looking at the evidence I agree with the verdict.

I just feel bad because I don't like when race gets out in the media, because I don't think the media has a pure heart, as I call it. There are very few people have a pure heart when it comes to race. Racism is wrong in any, shape, form. There are a lot of black people who are racist too. I think sometimes when people talk about racism they act like only white people are racist. There are a lot of black people who are racist. And I don't like when it gets out there in the media because I don’t think the media has clean hands.

BARTIROMO: I think you’re right. I’m glad you made that point.

BARKLEY: I don’t think the media has clean hands. And, like I say, I feel sorry that young kid got killed, but judging by the evidence, I don't think that guy should have went to jail for the rest of his life, because something happened bad that night obviously.

BARTIROMO: Yeah, I liked what one of the jurors said. She said they both should have walked away.

BARKLEY: Yes.

BARTIROMO: And if there’s a shadow of a doubt, there’s a shadow of a doubt.

BARKLEY: And let me say, Mr. Zimmerman was wrong to, he was racial profiling.

BARTIROMO: Absolutely.

BARKLEY: What I think Trayvon Martin, God rest his soul, I think he did flip the switch and start beating the hell out of Mr. Zimmerman. But it was just a bad situation. And like I said, the main thing I feel bad for, it gives every white person and black person who is racist a platform to vent their ignorance.

BARTIROMO: Right.

BARKLEY: You know, that’s the thing that bothered me the most because I watched this trial closely, and I watched all these people on television talking about it. A lot of these people have a hidden agenda. You know, they want to have their racist views, whether they are white or black,

BARTIROMO: The bias comes out.

BARKLEY: The bias, it definitely comes out. It was a bad situation. We all lost. And I feel bad for his parents. You don't ever want to see anybody lose a kid.

Moments after approving a new law legalizing gay marriage in England and Wales, Queen Elizabeth II of Britain unleashed a blistering attack on New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for “lacking the guts” to do the same.

The British monarch’s brutal evisceration of Gov. Christie stunned observers, who did not know that she was such a close follower of his gay-marriage stance.

“I don’t like to badmouth people,” she said.“But I’m the head of a monarchy that began in the ninth century, and I’m apparently more modern than Chris Christie.”

After shocking observers with her opening salvo, she continued to tear Gov. Christie to shreds.

“Look, I know he has to appeal to the crazy right wingers in his party,” she added.“But the fact is, he’s not as forward-thinking as an eighty-seven-year-old lady who wears a crown on her head. It’s pathetic.”

Asked if she had advice for Gov. Christie, the British monarch said, bluntly,“Just sign the damn bill, Chris.”

Responding to a reporter’s question about the upcoming royal birth, Elizabeth replied,“Tell you the truth? I’m just glad the kid’s not being born in New Jersey.”

Today's IRS congressional hearing witchhunt:
Washington (CNN)-- The inspector general who reported Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative groups said Thursday that he didn't have information until last week that the word "progressive" also was on a list of criteria for extra scrutiny of tax-exempt applications.
At a hearing of the House Oversight Committee, Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George said the information that liberal groups also were probably targeted only came to him July 9.
His audit, released in May, cited criteria including "tea party" and other conservative-themed words or labels that were used to decide whether applicants for tax-exempt status should come under further review. Since then, an investigation by the panel turned up documents that showed IRS workers also were told to look for the liberal-themed label.
"They were not provided during our audit, even though similar documents that list quote 'tea party' unquote but not 'progressive' were," George said. "I am very disturbed that these documents were not provided to our auditors at the outset, and we are currently reviewing this issue...."

I liked this editorial by Graham J Noble.
IRS lawyer Carter Hull told congressional investigators that his superiors informed him that the chief counsel’s office, headed by Obama-appointee William Wilkins, needed to subject certain applications to additional review because of potential political activity. It should be noted that no left-wing organizations had been subjected to this scrutiny.
The common refrain from this administration, in every situation, is that the people at the top of the ladder are, somehow, always completely unaware of decisions made by their staff.
It begs the question; why does the US government even have an executive branch when, by its own contention, it makes no decisions and is not, in any way, involved in running the country?
An additional question might be; why is anyone reading the mainstream media, when they constantly refuse to report on some of the most important political issue of the day?
The American people should be asking themselves; if the previous President’s administration was so directly culpable in every event that damaged the nation, then why is the current President’s administration so completely detached and uninvolved?
...That's what I ask myself every single day.
You mean... now you're going to skip the hearing AND rely on editorials instead to make your political (and not necessarily factual) points?!?!?!

my, my.
