Pleading the 5th Again

Another day the American people do not get answers from Lois Lerner, Former Director of Tax Exempt Organizations. Ms. Lerner is the center of the IRS “phoney” scandal as she aided the IRS at targeting Conservative groups.

Back in May of 2013 Ms. Lerner appeared in front of the House Oversight Committee and gave an apology for the targeting of Conservative groups by holding up tax-exempt status and proceeded to plead the 5th Amendment so she did not incriminate herself. Here is Ms. Lerner’s opening statement:

STATEMENT OF LOIS G. LERNER
Ms. LERNER. Good morning, Mr. Chairman and members of the
committee. My name is Lois Lerner, and I’m the Director of Exempt
Organizations at the Internal Revenue Service.
I have been a government employee for over 34 years. I initially
practiced law at the Department of Justice and later at the Federal
Election Commission. In 2001, I became—I moved to the IRS to
work in the Exempt Organizations office, in 2006, I was promoted
to be the Director of that office.
Exempt Organizations oversees about 1.6 million tax-exempt organizations
and processes over 60,000 applications for tax exemption
every year. As Director I’m responsible for about 900 employees
nationwide and administer a budget of almost $100 million.
My professional career has been devoted to fulfilling responsibilities
of the agencies for which I have worked, and I am very proud
of the work that I have done in government.
On May 14th, the Treasury IGs released a report finding that
the Exempt Organizations field office in Cincinnati, Ohio, used inappropriate
criteria to identify for further review applications from
organizations that planned to engage in political activity which
may mean that they did not qualify for tax exemption. On that
same day, the Department of Justice launched an investigation
into the matters described in the inspector general’s report. In addition,
members of this committee have accused me of providing
false information when I responded to questions about the IRS
processing of applications for tax exemption.
I have not done anything wrong. I have not broken any laws. I
have not violated any IRS rules or regulations, and I have not provided
false information to this or any other congressional committee.
And while I would very much like to answer the committee’s
questions today, I’ve been advised by my counsel to assert my constitutional
right not to testify or answer questions related to the
subject matter of this hearing. After very careful consideration, I
have decided to follow my counsel’s advice and not testify or answer
any of the questions today.
Because I’m asserting my right not to testify, I know that some
people will assume that I’ve done something wrong. I have not.
One of the basic functions of the Fifth Amendment is to protect innocent
individuals, and that is the protection I’m invoking today.
Thank you.

Ms. Lerner is asking for immunity. If she didn’t do anything wrong why would she need immunity? All the American people want (especially the American people that were targeted) is answers. Emails implementing Lois Lerner have been handed over to Congress which proves that she is involved in this some way.

Lois Lerner appeared again in front of the House Oversight Committee on March 5th, 2014. Pleading the 5th Amendment not to incriminate herself again. The hearing turned into a circus when Rep. Elisha Cummings had a “question” and proceeded to make a statement, no question was ever asked. Rep. Darrell Issa cut the microphones off and dismissed Ms. Lerner just prior to Rep. Cummings temper tantrum. See the hearing below.

Never in my life have I seen our “trusted servants” behave so bad. Arguing like that is not going to get us answers it is just distractions from the primary purpose. This is not how our tax dollars are supposed to be spent. This should NOT be about Democrat and Republican opposition; this is about America!

If ‘We The People’ don’t reign this corruption in now we will lose America as we know it. Should Lois Lerner be held in contempt of Congress for pleading the 5th Amendment? I think with the evidence they already have they should just throw her in jail and cut off her taxpayer funded retirement.

Another Terrorist Attack on the US?

I must say after watching Justice with  Jeanine Pirro on February 22, 2014 I am fearful of another attack on the United States of America. If you didn’t watch Justice please get informed and watch as Judge Jeanine explains threats http://foxnewsinsider.com/2014/02/23/our-death-toll-would-be-staggering-judge-jeanine-explains-threats-power-grid

Reported from The Blaze on February 12, 2014:

  • On April 16, 2013 six men launched an attack on a critical power station in California.
  • The attack consisted of hundreds of AK-47 rounds being unleashed on 10 large transformers — and it was first called “vandalism.”
  • But the former chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission calls it “the most significant incident of domestic terrorism involving the grid that has ever occurred.”
  • It has largely gone unreported, although TheBlaze did cover it last December.
  • Dr. Peter Vincent Pry tells TheBlaze, “If it was a terrorist attack, the electric power industry and the media are almost certainly in error to describe it as a ‘failed attack.’”
  • Former CIA director James Woolsey adds, “Without electricity we aren’t a civilization, and this is a major societal vulnerability.”

Most recently, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle  “Feds bust alleged Georgia Militianmen” that were planning to put together pipe bombs to use against the government. I wonder if they are being taught by Bill Ayers of “Weatherman Underground Organization” yes the very Bill Ayers that blew up the Pentagon in 1972.

There is no doubt in my mind that President Obama is aware of the threat and is doing nothing to stop it. After all he has sent billions of our tax dollars and weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria. The 9/11/12 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya is a prime example of how the Administration in Washington turns their backs on American’s in other countries and in this Country. Fast and Furious, the “non-scandal” where the DOJ “lost” weapons to the Mexican Drug Cartel that shot and killed Brian Terry, Border Patrol Agent and over 200 people in Mexico.

In the most recent Illegal Immigration and Amnesty Poll Only 18% think illegal aliens should be given immediate amnesty; 62% believe legalization should occur only after the border is secured, and 19% are unsure. The President thinks we live in a democracy (which democracy is nowhere stated in the Constitution of the United States) and in a democracy majority is supposed to rule. So why is the president pushing for amnesty? Amnesty will NOT protect the American people and the American people don’t want it. Amnesty will only leave the United States more vulnerable to terrorism.

Why has it taken so long to get coverage on such a serious terrorist attack strategy from our enemies? My guess is the main stream media knows what is going on and has been told not to report it. Is the media “protecting” American’s by not causing panic or ignoring it because it is part of “the plan” to bring America to its knees?

Hypocrisy at its Best

The North Carolina Chapter of NAACP usually has a protest on Monday’s called “Moral Monday’s” this is to fight the Republican Governor on every issue. Most members of the NAACP have been arrested for breaking the law during there protests by blocking doors so state employees can’t get in or out. This is not a peaceful protest if the law is broken.

The NAACP of North Carolina protested on Saturday February 8, 2014 against the new voter ID law. People were bussed to the State Legislator Building and they were given fliers of the “do’s and don’ts” of the protest. The hypocrisy here is that one of the do’s is to have a photo ID (drivers license, passport, or other valid photo ID). The reason that the NAACP is protesting the voter ID law is because they say it is “racist”.

Meanwhile, all of America knows that you need a photo ID for just about everything that is done today. North Carolina is offering free ID to those that need it. Why is it “racist” to have a photo ID to vote and it’s not “racist” to have a photo ID to protest? I think they just lost their argument!!

Taxed Enough Already

When people hear about the T.E.A. Party they automatically think racist, anti American, no government.  The true meaning is: T = Taxed, E = Enough, A = Already! If you don’t think you are being taxed to much by the federal, state, county, and municipalities then the government wasting your money is okay with you.

Every working American that earns wages “on the books” are subject to Federal tax, Social Security tax, Medicare tax. That is off of the gross pay. Most states are subject to a State tax, City/Municipal tax. For example,  gross earnings are $850.00 less: $50.00 (Fed), $53.00 (SS), $12.00 (Med), $46.00 [(State) states vary] totaling $161.00, net take home pay is $689.00 in a two week period. These numbers all vary depending on dependents, marital status, etc.

Taxes don’t end there with every utility bill, cable bill, phone bill there are federal, state, and county taxes and fees added on. Fuel tax every time you fill up your tank there is a state and a federal tax, as well as shopping in the grocery store or to put clothes on your back and shoes on your feet.  Now under Obamacare there is a tax on the oxygen and/or any other devise to keep you alive.

Much of these tax dollars are going to those that live off of the system. Food stamps and other federal programs were created to give American’s a hand up NOT a hand out. To many people are taking from the system and not putting in and they want more! Most “middle class” American’s don’t get subsidies whereas those that don’t work get the subsidies from all this nickle and diming the government is doing. People don’t want to work a full time job so the government can pay for the mortgage and continue with food stamps.

Nobody argues that taxes need to be paid to keep this great country going. At the end of the day between the federal, state, and county taxes there is barely enough to put food on the table and keep a roof over your head but there are those that live off of our hard earned tax dollars.

Are you Taxed Enough Already?

If Obama Lovers Only Knew

As I was standing on an overpass with www.stand-for-liberty.org and signs “Honk to impeach Obama” there were a few people yelling out the window that they “love Obama”. For the life of me I don’t understand why! Can it be because they don’t know what is going on in the world? Do these people not know that Obama is giving financial aide and arming the enemy (The Muslim Brotherhood) while the United States is broke and borrowing money from China? Do they not know that their God given rights are being taken away?

Are these people not paying attention to those that will not work a full time job in fear of losing their food stamps and/or may have to pay for their mortgage? Whereas, most American’s go to work so they can pay for food and housing. Do they know that 49% are on welfare of some kind? There was a time when it was a humiliating experience to get government handouts; today it is a badge of honor for some and our tax dollars pay for this.

Are they aware that more American’s lost their healthcare and/or health provider so that few people can have “healthcare”? Do they know that the death panels will allow American’s to go untreated? Do they even know about the death panels? The people that have been paying attention knew that healthcare costs would be much higher and that the plan they’ve had for years was going to be cancelled. Obama and administration have been lying about this law since it went into effect and the roll out is even worse! They missed another deadline. Meanwhile our hard earned tax dollars are being spent on a product that doesn’t work.

How about the Constitutional laws that have been broken, are they aware that the “Constitution of the United States of America” IS the supreme “Law of the Land”? There are supposed to be Checks and Balances between the three branches of government. To many times this president did what he wanted to do regardless of the checks and balances. He thinks the U.N. gun treaty he signed trumps the Constitution. I have news for you “Obama Lovers” it doesn’t!

The United States Military (all branches) have protected us from foreign and domestic enemies since its inception. Our Military has always been the best of the best and I thank them with all my heart. Today this administration is getting rid of those Officers that have dedicated their lives to protect ours. Do these Obama lovers know this? Do they know that this administration has put targets on the backs of our Military? Do they even know what happened to Extortion 17? Do they know anything about Benghazi and how a “stand down” order was given and  Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State wouldn’t give the security to Ambassador Stevens.  Do they even know that our Military fought for their rights?

Obama is a sweet talker and lies every time he opens his mouth. If these “Obama lovers” would look more into what happens before and after he comes out with his criticisms against everyone they just might not be an “Obama lover” after all.

Congress Hears Us

A victory for the American people today that the House of Representatives voted to defund Obamacare; the vote was 230 – 189.
After all the law is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. The President of the United States does NOT have the power to write and pass laws without Congress and the Supreme Court does NOT have the authority to impose a tax on United States Citizens! Obamacare was rewritten five times, three times by the Supreme Court. If you recall Justice John Roberts deemed the law Constitutional because it is a tax after he rewrote it to make it a tax.

President Obama thinks this is all about him. Well Mr. President it is about the American people and what they want! I know the House and the Senate have been getting phone calls and emails to defund this law. You Mr. President are the one extorting America by threatening to shut down the Government because you are not getting your way.

In a recent Fox News Poll 60% of Americans are NOT in favor of Obamacare; whereas, 34% of the Americans are in favor of the law.  In other polls; *CNN Opinion Research 57% against 39% for; ABC Poll 52% against 42% for. So it appears to me that the American people are NOT in favor of this new law.*

The House of Representatives did the right thing today by listening to their constituents and voting for what “WE THE PEOPLE” elected them to do. Now it is up to the Senate to listen to the same people that speak up to keep it defunded.  Let me reiterate that if the Government is shout down it is because Senator Harry Reid and the rest of the Senate Democrats are NOT listening to the People and do not deserve to be in office.
