RANT: Loris Lerner’s IRS emails do still exist…

Sunday, August 31, 2014

Dear Friend & Supporter,

We wanted to make sure you saw the breaking developments in our IRS investigation. In a bombshell admission, forced out by Judicial Watch lawsuits, the Obama Administration has disclosed that backs-ups of Loris Lerner’s IRS emails do still exist…

Please donate right now to keep the heat on Obama’s IRS.

Judicial Watch Statement on Discovery of Backups for “Missing”
Lois Lerner IRS Emails

Judicial Watch announced the following developments in our IRS missing emails investigation. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton stated:

Department of Justice attorneys for the Internal Revenue Service told Judicial Watch on Friday that Lois Lerner’s emails, indeed all government computer records, are backed up by the federal government in case of a government-wide catastrophe. The Obama administration attorneys said that this back-up system would be too onerous to search. The DOJ attorneys also acknowledged that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is investigating this back-up system

We obviously disagree that disclosing the emails as required would be onerous, and plan to raise this new development with Judge Sullivan.

This is a jaw-dropping revelation. The Obama administration had been lying to the American people about Lois Lerner’s missing emails. There are no “missing” Lois Lerner emails – nor missing emails of any of the other top IRS or other government officials whose emails seem to be disappearing at increasingly alarming rate. All the focus on missing hard drives has been a diversion. The Obama administration has known all along where the email records could be – but dishonestly withheld this information. You can bet we are going to ask the court for immediate assistance in cutting through this massive obstruction of justice.

Here is the second set of sworn declarations by IRS officials in response to Judge Emmet G. Sullivan’s investigation into the missing emails of Lois Lerner and other IRS officials. The declarations were provided after close of business on Friday, August 22.

Sincerely,

Your Judicial Watch Team

Yes, I am a Judicial Watch contributor.

I don’t understand why there are not people going to jail or being disbarred?

Personally, I am going to review all the testimony in front of Congress and statements to the media. Any lawyer involved will generate a letter to the appropriate Bar Association asking for disbarment proceedings to start. It was done to Clinton and it should be done to another liar!

Argh!

We have to fight for the Republic against the D’s, the R’s, and the Crony Capitalists.

Argh!

GUNS: Kolbe v O’Malley

Court Upholding Ban on Militia-Suitable Firearms Ignores Key Second Amendment Purpose
By David Codrea published on August 15, 2014 in Legal Issues

*** begin quote ***

U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Blake decided Tuesday against plaintiffs in Kolbe v O’Malley, a challenge to Maryland’s Firearm Safety Act, ruling “assault weapons” and their standard-capacity magazines “fall outside Second Amendment protection as dangerous and unusual.”

The Clinton-appointed judge went through double-jointed judicial contortions, revealing politically-motivated hostilities to be dissected by no shortage of legal scholars and pundits. They, and readers following their work, will be examining case details and disconnects, including prejudicial weapon descriptions, agenda-driven “expert” testimony, and myriad questionable assertions presumed by the court to be indisputable facts. Those include allegations of enhanced danger posed by the affected firearms, challenges to the effectiveness of the weapons in home-defense situations, dismissal of the relative distribution of such guns among the population, abuses of the demonized weaponry by criminals, and offensive police training comparison arguments used to undermine equal protection and disparage gun-owner competency. Those can then all be balanced against fraudulent “compelling state interest” and judicial scrutiny-level arguments, as if the security of a free State isn’t the most compelling interest, and as if unalienable rights don’t merit the strictest scrutiny.

What part of “shall not be infringed” doesn’t the judges, politicians, and bureaucrats not understand?

You can not parse a “right”!

The ability to resist the Gooferment and it’s Gestapo is fundamental.

GUNS: Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership

Sellout: JPFO to be handed off to SAF — unless we stop it
Friday, August 22nd, 2014

*** begin quote ***

I was hoping I wouldn’t have to post this, but now that we’re out of alternatives I’ll be as succinct as I can and attempt (no doubt unsuccessfully) to keep my most heated personal judgments to a minimum.

Somebody reminded me this week of that statement from Aaron, the late, great founder of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. That was how Aaron contrasted himself and JPFO with Alan Gottlieb and Gottlieb’s SAF/CCRKBA.

Aaron wanted to educate people so that victim disarmament would go away. He would have been thrilled to be able to close JPFO’s doors and say, “We’ve done it.”

On the other hand, he despised Alan Gottlieb and saw him as an opportunist who used scary mailings to turn SAF/CCRKBA into a fundraising factory. He saw Gottlieb as a person who needed and wanted “gun control” because that’s what kept the money and the publicity flowing.

*** end quote ***

It’s always a case of follow the money?

Like “doctors” that really don’t want a “cure”.

Like March of Dimes that moved on to “birth defects” after polio was cured.

And, the United Way and Red Cross with highly paid CEO and bureaucrats!

Why can’t non-profits be happy when they succeed?

It’s all about aligning “motivations”.

GUNS: Nine-year-old girl given full auto Uzi!

Nine-year-old girl kills shooting instructor with an Uzi submachine gun in U.S.

# – # – # – # – #   

This is STUPID in action.

Where where the parents?

Where did this “shooting instructor” get his training?

Has anyone ever fired a full auto? Which ever way it ejects, than it will move in the opposite direction.

The joke in boot was that if an untrained shooter is firing fully auto at you, then go low and charge when it runs out in a few seconds. 

During the “War of Northern Aggression”, Union supply officers wanted to discourage repeating rifles because it would encourage soldiers to waste ammo and exacerbate supply shortages. 

Full auto is for defending again a Banzai charge. Nothing else. The Marines have proven that semi-auto is “good enuf”!

When recently I was a “strange gun shoot” (i.e., 15 different guns from 22 to 50 cal semi-auto fixed mount machine gun), there was an instructor and range safety officer at every firing position as well as 5 range safety officer watching each of three stations and one Chief Range Safey Officer in something like a tennis umpire’s chair watch the entire range and commanding “Hot and Cold”. 

Argh!

What were these fools going to do next? Have the child juggle a few running chainsaws.

Between the open carry fools, who damage the cause, and this one, we don’t need “gun control advocates” to oppose us, we are doing the job for them.

Argh! Argh!

Darwin Award: Selfie With Elephant: Two men in Kenya were capturing selfies with a wild elephant when they were trampled to death by the irate pachyderm who proceeded to bury the corpses. The two men were actually touching the elephant’s face…

Like the Chinese fellow, who the sleeping crock should be made to do something, climbing over two walls to beat it with a stick.

It ate him.

Good thing we have politicians and bureaucrats to tell us what to do!

POLITICAL: WW1 citizen surveillance

TGIF: LIBERTY IN AMERICA DURING THE GREAT WAR
by Sheldon Richman
August 15, 2014

*** begin quote ***

The Justice Department under Attorney General Thomas Gregory encouraged citizen surveillance through its link to the American Protective League, “a group of amateur sleuths and loyalty enforcers,” in Kennedy’s description. Said Gregory, “I have today several hundred thousand private citizens — some individuals, most of them as members of patriotic bodies, engaged in … assisting the heavily overworked Federal authorities in keeping an eye on disloyal individuals and making reports on disloyal utterances.” Kennedy says that by the end of the war, the APL had 250,000 members.

This was also the period in which the United States got the Espionage Act and amendments known as the Sedition Act. Under the authority of the Espionage Act, Postmaster General Albert Sidney Burleson banned publications from the mail or stripped them of their second-class mailing permits for even suggesting that Wall Street or the arms industry controlled the government. Criticizing the government was regarded as aiding the enemy.

Ahh, yes, Wilson, the “Peace President”.

And, American Liberty has never recovered.

POLITICAL: Too much of a pistol

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

[Those of us who served in the “old Army” (pre-1985) would insist that the M1911A1 firing the .45 ACP meets all the requirements. The Thompson-LaGarde Tests of 1904 led the Army and the Cavalry to decide a minimum of .45 caliber was the most effective pistol cartridge. They noted, however, that training was critical to make sure a soldier could score a hit in a vulnerable part of the body. But it seems clear that the 1911 with the .45 round has one major drawback – it is too much of a pistol for female personnel to handle.]
