LAWMAKER THREATENS EX-IRS OFFICIAL WITH CONTEMPT

This website had some initial trepidation regarding U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.). We weren’t sure at first whether the Upstate South Carolina prosecutor would become a reliable free market vote … or another in a long line of Bible Thumping status quo backers like former Rep. Bob Inglis.

Since his election in 2010, though, Gowdy has not only met – but exceeded our expectations. With one or two rare exceptions, he’s earned consistently high marks for his votes in defense of freedom and free markets – joining U.S. Reps. Jeff Duncan and Mick Mulvaney (also elected in 2010) as a reliable limited government backer.

This week, Gowdy impressed us again by adopting a hard line stance against former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official Lois Lerner – who is seeking immunity from prosecution in the scandal Barack Obama’s administration seems hellbent on ignoring.

Lerner infamously pleaded the Fifth Amendment last year in response to questions about the agency’s shameful (and illegal) discrimination against limited government groups.

“She has not committed any crime or made any misrepresentation but under the circumstances she has no choice but to take this course,” Lerner’s attorney said at the time.

Next week, Lerner is scheduled to appear before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform – where Gowdy is waiting in full prosecutorial mode.

“We’re going to have to evaluate whether or not to hold her in contempt of Congress which could include a visit from the Capitol Police – and being incarcerated,” Gowdy said during an appearance on Fox News.

Wow …

Gowdy was also adamant Lerner would not be exempted from prosecution for her role in the scandal.

“We’re never giving her immunity,” he said, emphatically. “We’re not giving her immunity. Period. Why would you give someone immunity when you have no idea what criminal conduct they’ve engaged in?”

Exactly …

According to Gowdy, Lerner’s lawyer needs to “do what he should have done months ago” and provide House investigators with a document indicating what she would say if she were compelled to testify. That document couldn’t be used against her legally – or in the court of opinion – but would enable investigators to determine what concessions they would be willing to offer in exchange for her testimony.

Gowdy said Lerner’s desire for immunity strongly suggested “she’s guilty” – and added that he prefers to approach her as a “defendant” rather than a witness.

Of course Congress can’t prosecute her, only the U.S. Department of Justice can do that.

“I hope the Department of Justice at some point takes this investigation seriously,” Gowdy said. “As you know I can’t prosecute Lois Lerner. I can’t indict her, I can’t put her in prison. Only the executive branch can do that.”

“They won’t do their job so we’re going to have to do it for them,” Gowdy added, saying that he believes Lerner “connects this scandal all the way to Washington.”

We agree …

Of all the scandals hanging over the Obama administration, its use of the IRS to silence political opposition in advance of the 2012 election – and the subsequent coverup of the scandal – is by far the most egregious. That’s why Obama is doing his best to sweep it under the rug.

Props to Gowdy for not letting him get away with it …

Also props to NetRightDaily, the media outlet that’s been driving coverage of this issue while the mainstream media has been (mostly) asleep at the wheel …

This is THE BIG ONE. IT’S TOTALLY UN-AMERICAN BY T HE LIBERALS. This is NAZI Germany by the democrat party. If a Republican did this using the IRS it would take the party down for the next decade of more.

The media will ignore as much as possible. That’s why it imperative, ALL Conservatives and Christians…HARP HARP HARP on this….Never be talked out of it…

goody needs to RIP this woman, and all of them, apart. No mercy…and there needs to be investigation thoroughly and then more and more investigation….Start a national fund and hire private investigators from the Bush Administration…

America, under democrats, means defense and privilege for liberals…and hate and prosecution for Conservatives.

You are Full of $#!* to try to peddle your ignorance that there was some sort of discrimination against leftwing action groups.

Look what you did for ACORN and Planned Parenthood. You Fund them…you don’t attack them, Dumb@$$…

Smirks February 28, 2014 at 11:30 am

ACORN doesn’t exist, but that doesn’t stop Republicans from repeatedly “defunding” them, even in recent bills.

Again, Republicans need scandals, so they make them up. They even beat dead horses.

Oh, and yes, liberal groups NEVER get ANY scrutiny by government. I mean, Occupy Wall Street certainly never had any FBI or CIA investigations or infiltrations, nope!

For a group of people who likes to complain about the Democrat victim mentality, Republicans sure do have a helluva one of their own.

This country was founded on freedom and that freedom does not constitute only YOUR freedoms. I am a libertarian and conservative. You advocate for groups that want to legislate morality on others and let government into the lives of private citizens. You are so paranoid about people with opposing views to you that you really must have a clinical psychosis like the Nazis who saw a conspiracy at every turn. You use Christianity, hate, intolerance, and fear as platforms for change…change you believe is dooming us. Your picture of doom and gloom is luckily not shared by educated, informed, and self-confident conservative Christians.

In my humble opinion the Democrat Party are the right hand of the devil. At their convention they booed the name of God. Harry Reid comes out and calls sick Americans and folks that have lost their insurance and that are suffering liars. The Democrats have no soul nor compunction over lying through their teeth while facing you. They are dangerous to America and leading to our downfall. They have allowed our Embassy Officials to be murdered without any attempt to help them. They have sold American weapons to drug cartels to use on our law enforcement. They have gone as far as murdering American Citizens on American soil at Ruby Ridge and Waco. They turned the IRS loose on Americans who disagree with them. Government employees are the largest group of people owing back taxes and so on. If you care about America you had better take a stand before they turn the Military loose on us! This thing is much more dangerous than most realize.

As a result of the Citizens United decision, thousands of new 501(c) 4 corporations filed applications with the IRS in order to be granted tax free status, allow their corporate contributors the deduct their contributions, and keep their donor lists confidential. Among the requirements for contributions to qualify as tax deductible is that the organizations DO NOT intervene or participate in any political campaign, direct lobbying, grass roots lobbying, and contact with certain federal officials.

Many people believe these organizations do, in fact, participate in political campaigns and lobbying and should not be granted 501(c) 4 status. When these organizations declare that they were targeted because of their political activities and beliefs, it undermines their argument.

“Bless your heart.”

Two delicate flowers of Southern womanhood were conversing on the porch swing of a large white-pillared mansion. The first woman said, “When my first child was born, my husband built this beautiful mansion for me.”

The second woman commented, “Bless your heart.”
The first woman continued “When my second child was born, my husband bought me that fine Cadillac automobile you see parked in the drive.”

Again, the second woman commented, “Bless your heart.”

The first woman boasted “Then, when my third child was born, my husband bought me this exquisite diamond bracelet.”

Yet again, the second woman commented, “Bless your heart.”

The first woman then asked her companion, “What did *your* husband buy for you when you had your first child?”

The second woman replied, “My husband sent me to charm school.”

“Charm school!” the first woman cried, “Land sakes, child, what on Earth for?”

The second woman responded, “So that instead of asking ‘Who gives a flying fuck?,’ I learned, instead, to say ‘Bless your heart.'” !!!!!

There are political action committees affiliated with PPFA that meet all the IRS requirements for 501(c)(4) status after numerous audits.

“Philip Branton Drops The Hammer On Trey Gowdy, Graham, Scott, and CLYBURN Scandal”

UN-CIVIL Servant THREATENS LAWMAKER WITH CONTEMPT

This website had some initial trepidation regarding Un-Civil Servant Branton. We weren’t sure at first whether the SPAWAR Atlantic Informational prosecutor would become a reliable free MEDIA vote … or another in a long line of Bible Thumping status quo backers like Tom Davis.

Since his Un-Civil actions in 2009, though, Branton has not only met – but exceeded our expectations. With one or two rare exceptions, he’s earned consistently high marks from us (and others) for his Un-Civil Voice in defense of freedom and free markets.

This week, Un-Civil Servant Branton impressed us again by adopting a hard line stance against Trey Gowdy, Jim CLYBURN, Lindsey Graham, Tim Scott, and Lin Bennett who are all seeking Ethics re-establishment and some their re-election.

This “Fab 5″ infamously ignored telling concerned voters about the profits from OIL and Gas Stocks funding the actions in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Turkey, Ukraine, South Sudan, CAR, Somalia, Kenya, Bahrain, and BENGHAZI…….!!!!!!!

“These buffoons have no clue what CRIME they have even committed because FITSNEWS fails to report their ties to BIG OIL campaign donors…” A class Action attorney said at the time.

Next week, GOWDY is scheduled to appear in the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform – where SPAWAR Atlantic “observers” are waiting in full prosecutorial mode.

“We’re going to have to evaluate whether or not to hold him in contempt of Congress which could include a visit from the Mayberry Police – and being incarcerated,” Un-Civil Servant Branton said during an appearance on YOUTUBE.

Wow …

Branton was also adamant that the “FAB 5” would not be exempted from prosecution for their role in the stock scandal surrounding the NSA actions towards Mt. GOX or the Kiev Central Bank and the 70 Billion looted over the last year…..!!!!

“We’re never giving THEM immunity,” he said, emphatically. “We’re not giving them immunity. Period. Why would you give someone immunity when you have no idea what criminal conduct they’ve engaged in?”

Exactly …

According to Branton, Gowdy’s lawyer needs to “do what he should have done months ago” and provide Spawar IG “House” investigators with a document indicating what he would say if he were compelled to testify. That document couldn’t be used against him legally – ( just in the court of SPAWAR PSYOPS tactics) – but would enable investigators to determine what concessions they would be willing to offer in exchange for his testimony.

Branton said Gowdy’s desire for immunity strongly suggested “he’s guilty” – and added that he prefers to approach him as a “defendant” rather than a witness.

Of course Congress won’t prosecute him, only the U.S. Department of Justice can do that.

“I hope the Department of Justice at some point takes this investigation seriously,” Branton said. “As you know I can’t prosecute Trey Gowdy. I can indict him on Fitsnews, I can put him in “thought” prison. The DoD Psyops branch can do that.”

“They won’t do their job so we’re going to have to do it for them,” Branton added, saying that he believes Gowdy “connects this scandal all the way to Gas Pipelines in every “flash” country killing their own people.”

We agree …

Of all the scandals hanging over the Obama administration, its use of the IRS to silence political opposition in advance of the 2012 election – and the subsequent coverup of the scandal – is by far NOT the most egregious to American taxpayer PENSIONS. That’s why Obama is doing his best to keep Gowdy in the dark.

Props to Branton for not letting Gowdy or CLYBURN or GRAHAM or SCOTT or Lin Bennett get away with it …

Also props to SPAWARRightDaily, the media outlet driving “thought” coverage of this issue …

Good find Jay. And CNN is about out of business and MSNBC draws hardly anyone. Democrat TV is charity TV. Like Air-Head America went defunct…so are their TV networks…

Too bad the viewership for Fox News is mostly old white people, pretty much across the board, too.

So Congressman Gowdy has articulated his view that Ms. Lerner is to be regarded as a “defendant” rather than a witness and has already concluded that she is “guilty.”

Then everyone wonders WHY she is invoking her rights.

Exhibit A: Trey Gowdy.

If Lois Lerner is innocent of any wrongdoing, then why does she want immunity in exchange for her testimony? Every move she has made points to the notion that she’s guilty as hell, of course she’s innocent until proven otherwise, but damn she’s acted shady from the word go.

If you don’t think Lerner is a acting like a shady criminal element, you’re complicit in the decline of western civilization.

He’s trying to say that because Gowdy and a few others (none of whom have the power to prosecute anyone for jaywalking, murder, or anything in between) are being meanies and calling her bad names, that gives her the right to invoke the Fifth, AND renders it totally non-suspicious that she’s done so. Great logic, that. There’s only a single Constitutionally valid (and therefore legal) reason to exercise your right to testify in these situations, and that’s to avoid INCRIMINATING yourself during that compelled testimony. To INCRIMINATE one’s self, one has to have done something…INCRIMINATING. Simple, no? Is it legal to invoke the Fifth to avoid testimony? Absolutely. Does any fair minded person think that she’s doing it on principle? No. She’s doing it because she’s afraid that some of her actions violated federal law, or more likely, because her attorneys have informed her that her actions violated federal law,

euwe max March 2, 2014 at 12:03 pm

The fifth seems like a safe bet. I’d use it.

Mike at the Beach March 2, 2014 at 2:46 pm

Absolutely! That’s where I was coming from; if I was in her position, so would I. The reason for her use of the tactic was my point. It appears very likely that she either committed (or knew about) some violations- I’d be clinging to the Fifth like a life raft too…

The “IRS Scandal” exists only in an imaginary right-wing universe where Congressmen like Issa and Gowdy want to hold hearings to entertain their base, rather than dealing with the nation’s real problems.

As Macbeth quipped (yes, I know he was eulogizing his Lady, not Gowdy)
“. . . a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.”

Clearly, since the Tea Party shook up D.C. in the 2010 elections and the January 2010 ruling on Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the only group that could benefit from an IRS preventing conservative non-profit groups from approval is the Democrat Party in the 2012 elections.

IRS director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner knew that her agency flagged group titles with “tea party,” “patriot,” or “9/12 Project” for supplementary review as early as June 2011.

In May 2013, The IRS apologized for and admitted targeting groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names for tax scrutiny before the 2012 election.

Okay. I am personally involved with the IRS in South Carolina. That group in the Strom Thurmond Building would make the Richland County Election Commission looks like a bunch of astute, in tune, honest, intellectuals. They are absolutely corrupt to the core. Old time Democrats through out. I have yet to run into an honest, intelligent one. My “personal”: tax “advisor”: had a nervous breakdown and did not get my paperwork filed for over nine months. Sheesh, as Sic would write.

So, Lerner “infamously” exercised (not “pleaded”) her Fifth Amendment rights. FitsNews and Gowdy interpret that as evidence of guilt. Shades of McCarthy!

But then, some “infamously” exercise their First Amendment rights, and some others “infamously” exercise their Second Amendment rights, I suppose.

Are Sen. Tom Davis and South Carolina “infamously” exercising their Tenth Amendment rights?

Rights are worthless if they cannot be exercised without jeopardy.
