Lois Lerner waived her right to take the Fifth Amendment by making a statement of innocence before refusing to answer.
The committee should have questioned her all day (and tomorrow) and let her continue to refuse to answer.
By giving an opening statement she technically waived her right.

They noted this and state she will be called back.

If you believe Obama didn't know ANYTHING, there’s a shovel-ready infrastructure project in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you.

In April last year, the Obama campaign identified by name eight Romney donors as “a group of wealthy individuals with less than reputable records. Quite a few have been on the wrong side of the law, others have made profits at the expense of so many Americans, and still others are donating to help ensure Romney puts beneficial policies in place for them.”

That week, Kimberley Strassel began her Wall Street Journal column thus:

Try this thought experiment: You decide to donate money to Mitt Romney. You want change in the Oval Office, so you engage in your democratic right to send a check.

Several days later, President Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, singles you out by name.... The message from the man who controls the Justice Department (which can indict you), the SEC (which can fine you), and the IRS (which can audit you), is clear: You made a mistake donating that money.

Miss Strassel wrote that on April 26, 2012.

(SURPRISE! SURPRISE!) Five weeks later, one of the named individuals, Frank VanderSloot, was informed by the IRS that he and his wife were being audited.

In July, he was told by the Department of Labor of an additional audit over the guest workers on his cattle ranch in Idaho.

In September, he was notified that one of his other businesses was to be audited.

Mr. VanderSloot, who had never previously been audited, attracted three in the four months after being publicly named by el Presidente.

More to the point he attracted that triple audit even though Miss Strassel explicitly predicted in America’s biggest-selling newspaper that this was exactly what the Obama enforcers were going to do.

The “separate, sinister entity” of the government of the United States went ahead anyway. What do they care? If some lippy broad in the papers won’t quit her yapping about it, they can always audit her, too — as they did to Miss Strassel’s sometime colleague Anne Hendershott, a sociology professor who got rather too interested in Obamacare and wrote about it in the Journal and various small Catholic publications.

The IRS summoned Professor Hendershott to account for herself, and forbade her husband from accompanying her, even though they filed jointly. She ceased her political writing.

Whose job was it to monitor Gosnels clinic? Was it not the Health Department of Philadelphia? He was operating that dump for years; no one seemed to care. Why is that? Because it was in a poor black neighborhood and the patients were all black?
No one is defending Gosnell, you're a liar as usual. He is going to prison and the place is closed, so, stfu.
Given that Philadelphia has a black Mayor, a black District Attorney, and a black Chief of Police, your argument is laughable.

A year after he was named to the Obama Dishonor Roll, the feds have found nothing on Mr. VanderSloot, but they have caused him to rack up 80 grand in legal bills. This is what IRS defenders (of whom there are more than there ought to be) mean when they assure us that the system worked: Yes, some rich guy had to blow through the best part of six figures fending off the bureaucrats, but it’s not like his body was found in a trunk at the airport or anything, if you know what I mean, Kimmy baby.

Mr. VanderSloot is big enough, just about, to see off the most powerful government on the planet.

Most of those who’ve caught the eye of the IRS share nothing in common with him other than his political preferences.

They’re nobodies — ordinary American citizens guilty of no crime except that of disagreeing with the ruling party.

Yet they were asked, under “penalty of perjury,” to disclose the names of books they were reading and provide the names and addresses of relatives who might be planning to run for public office — a kind of pre-enemies list.

Is that banana-republic enough for you yet?

Not apparently for Juan Williams, fired from NPR for thought crime a couple of years ago, but who was nevertheless energetically defending the IRS exertions on Fox News on Thursday evening.

Left-wing groups had their 501(c)(4) applications approved in weeks, right-wing groups were delayed for months and years and ordered to cough up everything from donor lists to Facebook posts, and those right-wing groups that were approved had their IRS files leaked to left-wing groups like ProPublica.

The agency’s commissioner, a slippery weasel called Steven Miller, conceded before Congress that this was “horrible customer service”— which it was in the sense that your call is important to him and may be monitored by George Soros for quality control.

<quoted text>Pollinators participate in the reproduction of plants.
When you eat an almond, beet, watermelon or sip on coffee, you’re partaking of an ancient relationship between pollinators and flowers. But since the 1990s, worldwide bee health has been in decline and most evidence points to toxic pesticides created by Shell and Bayer and the loss of genetic biodiversity due to the proliferation of GMO monocrops created in laboratories by biotech companies like Monsanto.
But never worry, those real life pollinators—the birds and the bees, as they say—may soon be irrelevant to the food needs of civilization. Harvard roboticists are developing a solution to the crisis: swarms of tiny robot bees made of titanium and plastic that can pollinate those vast dystopian fields of GMO cash crops.
OBAMA MAY NOT BE A VICTIM BUT HE IS FULLY CONTROLLED BY THE ELITE... They should all be arrested and tried for crimes against nature and human kind.
Stop it! Flack owns tons of Monsanto stock, he is much more of a facillitator of GMO than Obama will every be.

The president and the IRS commissioner are unable to name any individual who took the decision to target only conservative groups.

It just kinda sorta happened, and, once it had, it growed like Topsy.

But the lady who headed that office, Sarah Hall Ingram, is now in charge of the IRS office for OBAMACARE.

Many countries around the world have introduced government health systems since 1945, but only in America does ‘health’‘care’‘reform’ begin with the hiring of 16,500 new IRS agents tasked with determining whether your insurance policy merits a fine.

So now not only are your books and Facebook posts legitimate tax issues but so is your hernia, and your prostate, and your erectile dysfunction. Next time round, the IRS will be able to leak your incontinence pads to George Soros.

Big Government is erecting a panopticon state — one that sees everything, and regulates everything. It’s great “customer service,” except that you can never get out of the store.

and maybe one of these days they'll figure out how to efficiently run Amtrak or the post office.

If Monsanto has a monopoly on the seed market they may not have a choice; also, Monsanto won the case in the Supreme Court against the Indiana farmer; he saved seeds and Monsanto sued him.

The last known legal name of the person having been put into the office of President is Barry Soetoro. When was this name legally changed?
It is nothing more than an assumption that the person who entered the United States as Barry Soetoro, and citizen of Indonesia, is the same person aliasly known as Barack Hussein Obama.
Considering how successful the Democrats have been in the past 50 years with duping the population of the United States with lies, it is most likely a lie that the president's name is Barack Hussein Obama.

In a free society it is typically the person making the accusations the one who needs to provide the proof not the other way around.

In 1975 it was Global cooling
Global warning is a mixture of what we're taking from the earth & pumping into the atmosphere like cause & effect! Compare the earth to a car engine. As long as that car has proper oil, not too much, not too little, that engine will work properly & not over heat. Well when America was basically the only country pumping oil crazy for transportation purposes, we saw little to no change because, the amount being pumped was comparable to the earths natural process of getting rid of excess oil.

Now, Americas not the only country pumping oil crazy for transportation purposes to supply the demand so, the amount being taking from the earth is not comparable to the earths natural process of eliminating excess oil, it's exceeding those limits so, like a car engine running nonstop on too little oil, the earths core is heating up. That's part 1! The cause!

Part 2 is the greenhouse effect. The earth is encased in an invisible magnetic shield that gives us gravity & absorbs excess rays of the sun. Also blocks space debris from entering earths atmosphere.

Now when a car is driven, the smoke from the exhaust from the gas/oil being burnt has to go somewhere which is out the tail pipe. Here's the difference between a car & the earth. The car has an exhaust system, which inevitably end up in the Earth's atmosphere. The earth has no such exhaust system. In essence, the car is dumping CO2 gases into the Earth's atmosphere, which the earth has no way of getting rid of them because, the earth has no exhaust system & is encased in it's own magnetic shield which keeps those gases in earths atmosphere. The effect, the earths temperature is increasing, slowly but surely due to the massive size of the earth & it's atmosphere!

You can thank me for the lesson later! Lol!

"Abortion clinics should be held to the same standards as hospitals. Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills oppose this because it would destroy their profits.
It’s obvious to anyone looking closely at this case that Gosnell ran a criminal enterprise, not a health-care facility. Indeed, Gosnell’s trial showed clearly that his operation was in violation of existing laws and regulations in the state of Pennsylvania.

But that hasn’t stopped opponents of safe and legal abortion from seizing on the case in the hope that it would fuel their agenda of restricting access to abortion—and ultimately banning it outright.

If there's one thing everyone observing this case can agree on, it's that all women, regardless of means, deserve access to high-quality health care delivered by licensed health-care professionals who adhere to the most rigorous professional standards, including providing emergency care" ..."The truth is that abortion is one of the safest medical procedures in America—and also one of the most heavily regulated."

leap of faith reasoning doesn't seem to be working to well for you wingnuts. it's not like you didn't have a chance to present the 'evidence' you claim to possess before Obama was reelected.

oh what a minute. you did present it. and how did that work out?

now you will try explain why, with more leap of faith reasoning, and with no mention of right wing policy failures, why the right wing myths fell flat on their face. at least that's the usual formula.

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?


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...
