The ‘Missing’ IRS Emails

It’s a cover-up — obstruction of justice — and everybody knows it, because the subpoenaed e-mails simply cannot be “lost”: The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) said it can’t provide emails sent between 2009 and 2011 that were requested by congressional investigators because of hard drive crashes.

Does That Mean That BHO’s Actual Birth Certificate Was An Attachment?

by Smitty For a warmup, via Insty, we have Paul Ryan skewering the smarmy IRS commissioner John Koskinen: JK is all: “Yeah, yeah, we all know I’m bullet-proof. Get your piece and make room in line and for the next guy. Imma have a second bourbon after this for you, Ryan.” The kicker is the […]

IRS Obstruction of Justice

Could it possibly be more obvious?

The information was transmitted in advance […]

A Long History Of Ineptitude And Corruption

– Wombat-socho While this could be a descriptor of many offices, bureaux, agencies and possibly even entire departments of the Federal Government, I’m addressing the problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs, which is still referred to by many as the Veterans Administration or simply VA. As CNN points out in this excellent article (apparently […]

More Arrests in Mississippi Scandal

The weirdest political scandal ever: Authorities say the vice chairman of the Mississippi Tea Party and two other men conspired with Clayton Kelly to photograph U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran’s bedridden wife in her nursing home and create a political video against Cochran. Mark Mayfield of Ridgeland, an attorney and state and local tea party leader, […]
