IRS Targeting Probe; A Matter of Honor
A federal agency is trying to block information going to our justice system --- that is just so messed up.
Nobody wins here.
And the probe into IRS targeting goes haywire. Lost emails? Emails are not stored in hard drives on computers unless you really try hard. Emails are not lost unless you really try hard. Evidence in a congressional inquiry is not lost unless you really try hard to lose it. IRS targeting probe is now filled with out right lies. It is a matter of honor now to get to the truth. It may seem like a partisan issue but it is not. Defending the behavior is for lawyers not elected officials. This matter is a real question of honor for our United States.
I have lived in countries where politics are handled by using other government agencies to attack the opposition and it is not pretty. It has been one area that the United States has shined above most others. No where near perfect and J. Edgar proved it going both ways. And still not appropriate in our military or government unions but far far better than so many.
And now this natural breech of that fine order of things occurred and it should have been over in a few weeks but it drags on because of a cover up of sorts and that is just plain really bad for the honor of the United States Government. It really is just human nature that the breech should occur with so much power in the hands of some. There is hardly shame that it occurred.
But to cover up the extent of it by hiding emails is just down right sad and pathetic. Latest headlines read:Second federal judge tells IRS to explain lost Lerner emails
Now that is just plain stinking sad that a branch of our government has such contempt for the rule of law that a judge has to order people working for me to obey the law.
I use this song because these IRS officials are to me, no less than thugs and gang members. It is a social sickness and needs to be fixed NOW
These government gangsters need somebody to go all cowboy on them.
A U.S. District Court Judge named Reggie Walton told Obama administration lawyers the he wants an affidavit explaining what happened with Lerner's hard drive. The IRS claims her computer suffered a crash in 2011 that wiped her email records at the time clean.
Now this should be real fun as most of us have never heard of or seen someone who stores emails in their computer. Normally this is done in a server and most normally a remote server that is dedicated to email. We are not saying that she could not have really worked hard to have a computer that could store her email, but it should be interesting to hear about.
Now computers crash all the time. And we understand that and so we have little boxes or remote servers that are dedicated to --- hang on here,,, drum roll please, back ups. Many places call it redundancy and many important people have double redundancy. We are not saying she did have this but we are saying it will be very interesting to find out why she did not have any storage.
Crashes do not wipe out computers. Interesting isn't it. A crash just makes the operating systems have a problem. Crashes do not wipe out data (OK data that is not stored yet and still only in the operating system, maybe) Even if they did it would not wipe out any data that had been saved. Mine is commercial and saves about every five minutes or when I ask it to. "recover draft" anyone?
And here is a real fun one. Presumably she sent the emails to someone. Where is their copy? Presumably she received emails from someone, where is that copy?
This should be real fun to see this affidavit. Fun but very sad for the idiot who writes it.
The scheme and cover up will come down one block at a time.
Who really cares what side what was on?
It really does not matter who pursued who for political gain. The IRS is disgusting the way it is doing business now and in the past. They just believe they are above the law and come after people without judicial review and oversight and that is very bad.
Normally to levy of funds the entity levying must go to court to get some oversight and permission. And in fact you are entitled to that with the IRS, it is just that they can levy first and then you make them go to a judge --- totally backwards with a constitution that reads: Nor shall any person be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.

We could use a little of this attitude toward weeding out the IRS in this matter.
No stealing here please
