Walid Shoebat, a former member of the PLO, asked a very interesting question about the IRS and NSA scandals. All Americans with the exception of Muslims and their Mosques, where terrorists are bred, are being monitored but not our friendly next door terrorists. Apparently the Muslim President doesn’t want to expose his violent fellow Muslims. Interesting that he will try to justify the invasion of our privacy under the guise of protecting us from terrorists while he protects those terrorists from surveillance.

Take a look--http://shoebat.com/2013/ 06/13/confluence-of-scandals-i rs-fbi-and-nsa/
In light of what is known about the pervasiveness of the NSA surveillance program, shouldn’t it now be considered scandalous that mosques are off-limits to the FBI, even though it’s ‘old news’?
With respect to the NSA scandal, let’s set aside the issue of criminality relative to leaker Edward Snowden’s behavior and focus on the federal government’s behavior. First, we know that the IRS deliberately profiled Jewish, Christian, and conservative Tea Party groups for discrimination; it’s a matter of public record. We also know that the foundation of a radical Muslim who just so happens to be the half-brother of the President of the United States, received preferential, expeditious, retroactive, and illegal customer service from the IRS in general, Lois Lerner in particular.
Contrast that with what should have been viewed as a scandal long ago – mosques being off-limits to the FBI.
Via Investors Business Daily:
The White House assures that tracking our every phone call and keystroke is to stop terrorists, and yet it won’t snoop in mosques, where the terrorists are.
That’s right, the government’s sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized.
Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents. No more surveillance or undercover string operations without high-level approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee.
Who makes up this body, and how do they decide requests? Nobody knows; the names of the chairman, members and staff are kept secret.
No more surveillance of mosques? Isn’t the revelation that all Americans are being surveilled the primary takeaway from the details of the NSA program? So, if mosques are exempt from FBI surveillance, are they also exempt from NSA surveillance? If the answer to that question is yes, we may just have a reality that parallels what happened at the IRS – Islamic fundamentalists are given preferential treatment while law-abiding citizens are profiled.

You are obviously deranged, seriously disturbed. You attack me for no reason whatever, showing all posters what a lunatic you are, spewing inane garbage. Get some counseling, for you are in trouble mentally.
A suggestion: read the book “The Broken Brain” by Professor of Psychiatry Nancy Andreasen. The title describes your brain and you may benefit from the reading, that is, if your mind can comprehend any of it.

You, of all people, certainly ought to know how calling another names makes one feel since you have more experience with it than most. How hypocritical of you to say that to me when you have done little besides name calling in regard to me since I have posted in the DC forums! As for the right, those with logic know the right is more knowledgeable and correct in what it does and believes than you left wingers, who are ruled by your emotions and anti-American agenda rather than the ability to think reasonably.

Odd, Bush did this without court approval and consevatives didnt mind....Obama does it WITH Fisa court subpoenas and suddenly its horribe!
Conservatives are so weak!

Logan and I know if Bush's people had appeared before Congress they would have "admitted" they would have "known" they would have "verified" there would have been "accountability" for "their" individual actions.

Liberal/Socialist/Muslim Obama's people have "gone" way beyond what was allowed under Bush.

Liberqal/Socialist judges write the orders...

Obama's people appearing before Congress have "denied" claimed "not to know" __ "cannot verify" __ there is "no accountability" for their individual actions.

Even the FBI Director in place under Bush [Liberal/Socialist mole] cannot verify if the IRS is under investigation...how many agents are assigned to the case...who is the lead investiator.

Liberal/Socialist are so weak they have to stack the deck, look over your shoulder to verify your cards [or lack of] and continue to cheat, scam, and commit treason against the American people.

Of course Liberal/Socialist "Smoke-and-Mirrors" operatives on Topix __ FFS, Concordia, Pig, and last but not least [mentally ill] Mad Dog Mike will always be present to "cloud" facts and truth with lies and distortions.

You must keep a little notepad of things to say for your lame responses on here. I suggest you buy a book about liberal comebacks. Anything would be an improvement over the ones you currently use, for you repeat the same boring ones endlessly.

I have to agree.The Obama administration is the most corrupt ever to exist. He hasn’t the intelligence to run this country, a fact that was obvious long before he was elected; and the people he has on his staff aren’t any better. Our country is going down the drain rapidly, with one scandal after another on a regular basis. It’s unbelievable that he still has supporters in view of the assaults on our personal liberties and the disasters he has brought on this nation.

Now he is adding to the scandals his continued assistance to terrorists in Syria, depleting our finances again in his never ending support of Muslim jihadists.

lol, more conservative stupidity on display.

The Cheney administration was far more corrupt and had three times the scandals. Real scandals too.

Are you talking about the assaults on liberty used by the Cheney administration who never got a court order? Obama has subpoenas, it's legal.

The Syria whine is just cowardly. If Obama doesn't arm the rebels, you call him weak, if he does you claim hes arming the enemy. You're very transparent

you apparently don't have a very good memory

2000 -2008
Plame affair (2004), in which CIA agent Valerie Plame's name was supposedly leaked by Richard Armitage, Deputy Secretary of State, to the press in retaliation for her husband's criticism of the reports used by George W. Bush to legitimize the Iraq war.[88] Armitage admitted he was the leak[89] but no wrongdoing was found.
Thomas A. Scully, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), withheld information from Congress about the projected cost of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act, and allegedly threatened to fire Medicare's chief actuary, Richard Foster, if Foster provided the data to Congress.(2003)[90] Scully resigned on December 16, 2003.
NSA warrantless surveillance – Shortly after the September 11 attacks in 2001, President George W. Bush (R) implemented a secret program by the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on domestic telephone calls by American citizens without warrants, thus by-passing the FISA court which must approve all such actions.(2002)[91] In 2010, Federal Judge Vaughn Walker ruled this practice to be illegal.[92]
Janet Rehnquist (daughter of former Chief Justice William Rehnquist) appointed Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services by George W. Bush. In 2002, Governor Jeb Bush's (R-FL) Chief of Staff Kathleen Shanahan asked Rehnquist to delay auditing a $571 million federal overpayment to the State of Florida. Rehnquist ordered her staff to delay the investigation for five months until after the Florida elections. When Congress began an investigation into the matter, Rehnquist resigned in March 2003, saying she wanted to spend more time with her family.[93][94][95][95][96][97 ]
John Yoo An attorney in the Office of Legal Counsel inside the Justice Department who, working closely with vice president Dick Cheney and The Bush Six,[98] wrote memos stating the right of the president to –
suspend sections of the ABM Treaty without informing Congress[99]
bypass the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act allowing warrentless wiretapping of US Citizens within the United States by the National Security Agency.[99]
state that the First Amendment and Fourth Amendments and the Takings Clause do not apply to the president in time of war as defined in the USA PATRIOT Act[99]
allow Enhanced Interrogation Techniques (torture) because provisions of the War Crimes Act, the Third Geneva Convention, and the Torture convention do not apply.[99]
Many of his memos have since been repudiated and reversed.[99][100] Later review by the Justice Department reported that Yoo and Jay Bybee used "poor judgement" in the memos, but no charges have yet been filed.[101]

2000 - 2008 continued

Kyle Foggo Executive director of the CIA was convicted of honest services fraud in the awarding of a government contract and sentenced to 37 months in federal prison at Pine Knot, Kentucky. On September 29, 2008, Foggo pleaded guilty to one count of the indictment, admitting that while he was the CIA executive director, he acted to steer a CIA contract to the firm of his lifelong friend, Brent R. Wilkes.[76]

Julie MacDonald Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Department of the Interior, resigned May 1, 2007, after giving government documents to developers (2007)[77]

Claude Allen Appointed as an advisor by President George W. Bush (R) on Domestic Policy, Allen was arrested for a series of felony thefts in retail stores. He was convicted on one count and resigned soon after.[78]

Lester Crawford Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, resigned after 2 months. Pled guilty to conflict of interest and received 3 years suspended sentence and fined $90,000 (2006)[79]

2003 Invasion of Iraq depended on intelligence that Saddam Hussein was developing "weapons of mass destruction" (WMDs) meaning nuclear, chemical and/or biological weapons for offensive use. As revealed by The (British) Downing Street memo "Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and the facts were being fixed around the policy" The press called this the 'smoking gun."(2005)[80]

Yellowcake forgery: Just before the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the Bush administration presented evidence to the UN that Iraq was seeking material (yellowcake uranium) in Africa for making nuclear weapons. Though presented as true, it was later found to be not only dubious, but outright false.[81]

Coalition Provisional Authority Cash Payment Scandal: On June 20, 2005, the staff of the Committee on Government Reform prepared a report for Congressman Henry Waxman.[82] It was revealed that $12 billion in cash had been delivered to Iraq by C-130 planes, on shrinkwrapped pallets of US $100 bills.[83]

The United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, concluded that "Many of the funds appear to have been lost to corruption and waste.... Some of the funds could have enriched both criminals and insurgents...." Henry Waxman, commented, "Who in their right mind would send 363 tons of cash into a war zone?" A single flight to Iraq on December 12, 2003, which contained $1.5 billion in cash is said to be the largest single Federal Reserve payout in US history according to Henry Waxman.[84][85]

Bush administration payment of columnists with federal funds to say nice things about Republican policies. Illegal payments were made to journalists Armstrong Williams, Maggie Gallagher and Michael McManus (2004–2005)[86]

Bernard Kerik nomination in 2004 as Secretary of Homeland Security was derailed by past employment of an illegal alien as a nanny, and other improprieties. On Nov 4, 2009, he pled guilty to two counts of tax fraud and five counts of lying to the federal government and was sentenced to four years in prison.[87]

your memory is shot huh?
2000-2008
"Lawyergate"[42] Or the Dismissal of U.S. attorneys controversy refers to President Bush firing, without explanation, eleven Republican federal prosecutors whom he himself had appointed. It is alleged they were fired for prosecuting Republicans and not prosecuting Democrats.[43][44] When Congressional hearings were called, a number of senior Justice Department officials cited executive privilege and refused to testify under oath and instead resigned, including:
Michael A. Battle Director of Executive Office of US Attorneys in the Justice Department.[45]
Bradley Schlozman Director of Executive Office of US Attorneys who replaced Battle[46]
Michael Elston Chief of Staff to Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty[47]
Paul McNulty Deputy Attorney General to William Mercer[48]
William W. Mercer Associate Attorney General to Alberto Gonzales[49]
Kyle Sampson Chief of Staff to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales[45]
Alberto Gonzales Attorney General of the United States[50]
Monica Goodling Liaison between President Bush and the Justice Department[51]
Joshua Bolten Deputy Chief of Staff to President Bush was found in Contempt of Congress[52]
Sara M. Taylor Aide to Presidential Advisor Karl Rove[53]
Karl Rove Advisor to President Bush[54]
Harriet Miers Legal Counsel to President Bush, was found in Contempt of Congress[52]
Bush White House e-mail controversy – During the Lawyergate investigation it was discovered that the Bush administration used Republican National Committee (RNC) web servers for millions of emails which were then destroyed, lost or deleted in possible violation of the Presidential Records Act and the Hatch Act. George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Andrew Card, Sara Taylor and Scott Jennings all used RNC webservers for the majority of their emails. Of 88 officials, no emails at all were discovered for 51 of them.[55] As many as 5 million e-mails requested by Congressional investigators of other Bush administration scandals were therefore unavailable, lost, or deleted.[56]
Lurita Alexis Doan Resigned as head of the General Services Administration. She was under scrutiny for conflict of interest and violations of the Hatch Act.[57] Among other things she asked GSA employees how they could "help Republican candidates".[58]
John Korsmo chairman of the Federal Housing Finance Board pled guilty to lying to congress and sentenced to 18 months of unsupervised probation and fined $5,000.(2005)[59]
Philip Cooney Bush appointee to chair the Council on Environmental Quality was accused of editing government climate reports to emphasize doubts about global warming.[60] Two days later, Cooney announced his resignation[61] and later conceded his role in altering reports. Stating "My sole loyalty was to the President and advancing the policies of his administration," .[62][63]
Jack Abramoff Scandal in which the prominent lobbyist with close ties to Republican administration officials and legislators offered bribes as part of his lobbying efforts. Abramoff was sentenced to 4 years in prison.[64][65]
See Legislative scandals.
David Safavian GSA (General Services Administration) Chief of Staff,[66] found guilty of blocking justice and lying,[67] and sentenced to 18 months[68]
Roger Stillwell Staff in the Department of the Interior under President George W. Bush (R). Pleaded guilty and received two years suspended sentence.[19]
