Your LIARS concept is really creative. It’a like getting everything to rhyme out when you’re writing a poem. Hats off to you if you came up with the LIARS.
Of course you’re caught up in Faux “News’” Beghazigate extravaganza. I too find it an interesting strategy. If it works, it will kill Hilary’s chance of getting elected President if she decides to run. But what if Hillary decides not to run — all that wasted effort at Faux. When will they learn not to put all their eggs in one basket? if Uncle Joe runs, he’s not covered.
You asked why the State Department turned over security to the "rebel" government after the MASSIVE war crimes they committed against black-Africans in Libya. Again I can only commend you on assembling and communicating such an elaborate construct. Let me add “why did President Obama order Hilary Clinton to order the Marxist Kenyan communist IRS to use black helicopters in the surveillance of nice innocent Christian Republican victims?”
Thanks for the compliment. "LIARS" is more than an acronym as it is also a Double Oxymoron with "Liberal Intelligentsia" coupled with "Rich Socialists"; with Socialist advocating wealth equity and the first oxymoron being self-explanatory.

My complaints about "war crimes" in Libya were trumpeted by a brave US Congressman, Jesse Jackson Jr., who has a strong defender and advocate in myself, myself being immune to the diabolical purposes of those who control the MSM.

"U.S Congressman Wants Libyan Rebels Investigated on ‘Crimes Against Humanity’"

14/09/2011

"Representative Jesse Jackson, Jr., reacting to reports in The Wall Street Journal has called for an investigation by the International Criminal Court into the reported killings of Black Libyans in the city of Tawergha."

"... The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that rebels from Misurata had torched the homes that belonged to the predominantly dark-skinned residents of the city of Tawergha, which is now abandoned.

"A Journal reporter witnessed some of the torching and wrote that the words “slaves” and “negroes” were scribbled on the walls of the now emptied homes."

"In an earlier news report The Wall Street Journal reported that rebels from the city of Misurata had declared that Tawergha would be “no more” and that the units conducting the attacks was named 'The Brigade for Purging Slaves, black Skin.'"

The Judaical community has to catch up on this wrinkle in the New Rules of Law.
Under Old Testament Law there were no prisons.

Of course, there were a lot of Capitol Offenses, whose punishment was quickly carried out and crimes involving property were settled with the wrongdoer having to compensate the victim with multiples of the cost of lost property, requiring the wrongdoer to be free to labor until the debt was paid.

A top Democrat -- Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus -- also said Monday that his committee would launch a "full investigation" into the matter.

"These actions by the IRS are an outrageous abuse of power and a breach of the public's trust. Targeting groups based on their political views is not only inappropriate but it is intolerable," the Montana Democrat said in a statement. "Americans expect the IRS to do its job without passion or prejudice. We need to get to the bottom of what happened here.... The IRS will now be the ones put under additional scrutiny."

This is apology is nothing more than a red herring designed to detract from the more serious and real and present issue the liberal-biased lame stream news media would like to put rest. That is Benghazi and the subsequent cover-up by the Obama Administration.

Hatred and distrust is nothing new of the IRS and cuts across the isle. It's almost un-American not to be critical of the IRS.

Yes, of course, but my point is that there was in fact an honest Republican and he was arguably our greatest President, not unlike Barrack Obama in many ways. I just wanted to document that and give credit where it was due.

The head of the IRS might well have been a Bush appointee, but at this point he is working for Barack Hussein Obama, and following his orders.
