Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

I fib. We’re not really learning anything new about Lois Lerner’s modus operandi. It’s just the same old wiping of evidence — evidence that she and others at IRS knew was relevant to congressional inquiry into IRS misconduct.

Lerner is the former IRS department head in charge of reviewing applications of non-profits for tax-exempt status. Her department targeted right-leaning applicants for special obstruction and delay. The practice began to come to light a couple of years ago.

Congress has asked for a great deal of documentation from the Internal Revenue Service that has yet to be supplied, including all of Lerner’s pertinent email. As I’ve discussed before, the IRS has claimed that her hard drives accidentally crashed in June of 2011 — and not hers alone — so that much of the relevant email is gone.

No backups on any server, either.

It all sounded pretty bogus back when the story was “hot.” And now, according to testimony of an IRS employee just filed in the case of Judicial Watch, Inc. v. Internal Revenue Service, it transpires that Ms. Lerner had a BlackBerry on which her email traffic was routinely duplicated … and that this device was wiped in June 2012, months after Congress started asking questions about the ideological targeting of applicants for tax-exempt status.

Judicial Watch, my hero, is now urging the court to require the IRS to divulge the relevant dates of the wiped data, then subpoena BlackBerry for the data. Because we all know that it hasn’t really disappeared forever into the black hole at the center of the galaxy.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    Beautiful. But not only that, we all know that the NSA has it all stored in UT or somewhere anyway. Why don’t they go after it that way?

    I’ve always felt that Darrel Issa & Trey Gowdy would track it down eventually.

    Anyone else doing this would be held in contempt and jailed.

    It is deeper than the Lerner lies, the Congress does not really WANT to rock the boat, USAG Holder sides with Lerner and the IRS and will not prosecute and any hopes of the separation of powers allowing the government itself to protect the citizens and their Constitutional rights is dashed.

    It is a sad example of the decline of this once great, but faltering country, which has lost its way, and founding principals.

    OT – The mayor of Lynn, Mass. says that some of the illegal aliens from Guatemala who are enrolled in her city’s public schools are adults with graying hair and “more wrinkles than I have.”…

    “They are not all children,” Judith Flanagan Kennedy told reporters at a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday.

    “One of the things that we did notice when we were processing some of these students coming in was that they were adults,” she said.

    She added that the federal government will not allow school officials to verify their ages, even though one of the students turned out to be 35 years old.

    Kennedy said that the majority of those from Guatemala who are enrolling in the Lynn Public Schools claim to be between 14 and 17 years of age.

    “But there were people with graying temples, hair around the temples,” said Kennedy, adding that although she did not see these individuals in person, she saw photographs of them in registration paperwork. “There were people with more wrinkles than I have around their eyes.”

    However, the school district was directed by the federal government not to verify the age of the foreign enrollees, Kennedy said.

    “We were told through a directive from the Department of Justice (DOJ) that we were not to question or verify – attempt to verify these ages,” Kennedy stated at the press conference, hosted by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).


    The very agency responsible for enforcing “The Rule of Law” in this country is destroying it in immigration, police enforcement and financial markets.

  4. …. (Lerner wiped her Blackberry) … in June 2012, months after Congress began its investigation of the Obama Gang’s fascistic targeting of its political opponents’ applicants for tax-exempt status ….

    Not long now, however, before the “Democrats” are swept from — and Obama is forced from — our offices.

    And the Perry/Carson Administration begins its Herculean restoration of Constitutional Rule of Law.

    Please, Dear Lord …

    Curiouser and curiouser.
    Amazing that the members of this administration are so willing to shred and abandon this particular Constitution. Especially so since it was set up to eliminate the normal progression of having to take them out to be hung or shot.
