Laughing AT (not with) our rulers…

Posted by taxguru on July 29, 2013


From Fred Thompson:

TV star Nathan Fillion refused to show up on set recently, while negotiating for a 4-day work-week. Thanks to Obamacare, most Americans will get that whether they want it or not. 


Due to a computer error, PayPal accidentally credited a man in Pennsylvania $92,233,720,368,547,800. Heck, that could have paid for 6 months of Obamacare. 


In Waukegan, IL, police said they are investigating at least two incidents in which a man caused slow leaks in young women’s car tires, then offered to help them. Think he got the idea from Obama’s economic plan? 


The Department of Housing and Urban Development plans to map every neighborhood in America in an effort to “eliminate segregation”. Oh… so the government’s going to change their focus from eliminating employment for a while?


 The IRS lawyer who targeted Tea Partiers for auditing met with President Obama 2 days before implementing the program last year. Probably just Obama vetting Treasury Secretary nominees.


 From Jay Leno:

Neural scientists at M.I.T. say they can plant false memories in your brain. No, that is not new. Politicians have been doing that for years. They’re called campaign promises.


In a speech about the economy, President Obama said we’ve all been distracted by phony scandals. It’s time we started getting distracted by the phony recovery.


The head of the TSA said beginning later this year people can pay an $85 fee that will allow them to go through the airport line very quickly with minimal checking. Or as terrorists call that, money well spent.


From Argus Hamilton:

President Obama gave an hour-long speech on Wednesday in which he complained that the House probes into the IRS and Justice Department are just phony scandals. No one paid attention. In order make the news these days, he would have to confess to lewd-texting tea-partiers to avenge Trayvon.


Phil Mickelson paid half his two-million-dollar prize money for winning the Scottish and British Open to British tax collectors. It supports Britain’s cradle-to-grave welfare system. Maybe now Phil Mickelson understands why the gallery made him feel like a king.


The Bank of England will put Jane Austen’s portrait on ten pound currency bills to salute women, It’s been tried before. When the U.S. put Susan B. Anthony on a dollar coin in the Seventies. you’d give one to the homeless and they’d say they weren’t THAT hungry.

Our phony pResident dismisses all scandals as not worthy of his royal attention

Posted by taxguru on July 29, 2013

For anyone expecting something to be done in regard to the admitted IRS crimes, BHO tossed cold water on that by using his magic wand to declare all of the scandals as phony, including the deaths in Benghazi that he and Hitlery caused.  As always, our mainstream media have taken up this message and are continuing to cover up and lie about the IRS and other scandals.

Lew Defends Administration Handling of IRS Controversy –  The new guy is doing what BHO wants and continuing the cover-up.


Real Scandals Denied by a Phony President –  Arnold Ahlert

Are media buying into ‘phony scandal’ claim?  –  They obviously don’t believe the scandals are phony; but they are obeying their orders to promote that line as part of their job to prop up their messiah as infallible.


Lew Won’t Say Whether Chief Counsel Has Been Asked About IRS Scandal –  The new Treasury secretary does his part to cover things up.


Nothing ‘phony’ about O’s scandals –  Not to those of us who live in the real world instead of the Planet Washington DC.


Obama dismisses his phony scandals, but hails his phony recovery –  He has been endowed with the power to define reality was whatever he wants it to be.


Phony Parade photo PhonyParade_zps4dd01996.jpg


Records of Christine O’Donnell tax snooping disappear –  Does anyone else remember when they used to say that the coverup was worse than the crime?


Did IRS appointee meet with Obama before new screening guidelines released? –  Do bears crap in the woods?


Lois Lerner’s Ace in the Hole –  Similar to other organized crime family members who try to cut deals to reduce their punishment.


From Brent Bozell, who has made a career out of analyzing the ever-growing liberal media bias in this country.

No Big Surprise: Biased Media Ignore Obama Scandals 


Insulating Obama From His Corrupt IRS

Will the IRS scandal implicate the White House? Let’s hope so. –  From the WSJ

There Was Never Any IRS Scandal After All –  A good example of the kinds of lies the BHO ass-lickers in the media are putting out there.


Auditing the auditors…

Questions raised about IRS executive travel  


Report finds some high-level IRS executives have ‘extremely high’ travel expenses

From Argus Hamilton:

Democrats love the Royal Family because they display the life that’s possible when you live off the government and keep having kids.


Senate Republicans weighed a plan Tuesday to refuse any funding for implementing ObamaCare when it becomes law this fall. You can’t make it up. ObamaCare turned out to be so costly and so unenforceable it’s got Americans open to the idea of DarwinCare.


Alex Rodriguez faced a possible lifetime suspension from baseball Thursday despite his convincing denials of recent steroid use. It points to a clinical study that says people get better at lying the more they lie. It really shows the need for term limits in Washington.


The U.S. Senate passed a bill allowing college students to get student loans at existing market rates. The tuition costs are insane today. They’re necessary to fund half-million dollar salaries for professors, otherwise who do we have to teach kids that wealth is evil?


From Jay Leno:

According to a new study, lying gets easier over time. People get better at lying the more they do it. See, that’s why you have to have term limits.

From Conan:
The royal baby is set to inherit $1 billion. In fact, he’s so rich that he’s already dating a girl half his age.

Clint’s Detroit Update

This update to the accidentally pro-Obama ad Clint Eastwood did last year is great.  It comes from this episode of Mash Gordon.

Taxation with Secret Representation

Posted by taxguru on July 25, 2013

Reading this news item from CCH made my stomach turn.

Baucus, Hatch Promise Lawmakers 50 Years Secrecy for Tax Comments

Since our elected officials are supposed to be our public servants, we should know everything they do so we can make reasoned decisions as to whether or not we want to keep them in office or vote in someone else. 

When their votes and other official actions are sealed up from public view for 50 years, this is nothing short of chicken-shit and just another step in their devolution of the Constitution to become an elite and unaccountable Royal class in this country.

Any comments on tax policy made by our elected rulers must be in the immediate public record and they should be made to defend them now.  Any ruler supporting this 50 year shield should be voted out of office, if not impeached for violating their oath of office.  That goes for GOP and Dims.

From Jay Leno:

Detroit has become the largest city in U.S. history to file for bankruptcy. What happened was Detroit’s population dropped something like 70 percent, but the government got bigger. The tax base got smaller, but the government got bigger. Thank God that kind of thing could never happen in Washington.


Detroit filed for bankruptcy Friday listing eighteen billion dollars in municipal debt and pensions it can’t pay. The declining business revenues can’t support government services. President Obama just told reporters that if he had a city it would look like Detroit.


Barack Obama said Friday he himself might have wound up like Trayvon Martin. Not likely. Any black kid who was destined to double the Dow Jones, save banks and double oil profits would be greeted in any gated community with gold, frankincense and myrrh.

From Argus Hamilton:

House of Cards with Kevin Spacey scored many Emmy nominations Friday. It reveals the world of politics as a life of lying, manipulation, double crossing and blackmail and access granted in return for sexual favors and cash. There is also a negative side to politics.


IRS employees testified in Congress that a White House political appointee ordered them to target conservatives They loathe conservatives. Osama bin Laden’s second biggest mistake was letting Democrats catch him in satellite photos wearing a cowboy hat.


From Fred Thompson:

President Obama said he wants to use Google’s model to create “a smarter government”. Nah, he should try the Twitter model: no new laws over 140 characters long.


Scientists have developed a revolutionary new blood test that can tell you how long you will live. Big deal. Obama already developed a panel that will do the same thing.


All 45 Senate Republicans are calling for the implementation of Obamacare to be permanently delayed. President Obama disagreed, pushing for a permanent delay in economic recovery, instead.


Despite President Obama’s announcement to the contrary, Nancy Pelosi said “the employer mandate was not delayed”. Apparently Obama hasn’t given her a bill to pass so she can find out for sure.


After a year, the State Department has yet to fully comply with requests under the Freedom of Information Act to list Hillary Clinton’s travel expenses. Well, at least you can be sure Benghazi visits didn’t cost a dime.


After declaring bankruptcy a few months ago, Hostess announced that Twinkies will soon be returning to store shelves, but now they’ll be 10% smaller. Ah… the perfect metaphor for Obama’s “recovery”.

More on IRS Cover-Ups

Posted by taxguru on July 21, 2013

The media are continuing to do their job of  covering up and lying about any news that could make their messiah look bad.

ABC, CBS and NBC to Viewers: IRS Scandal? Please, That’s Old News  


Feds Targeted Tax Records of Political Candidates; All Three Networks Ignore  


Republicans question Obama appointee’s role in IRS scandal –  Anyone appointed by BHO has to continue to cover his butt, including committing perjury if they are truly loyal to their messiah.


Embattled IRS chief counsel met with Obama 2 days before writing new targeting criteria –  And it wasn’t in Cincinnati.   


IRS scandal creeps closer to White House –  How many BHO disciples will sacrifice themselves to prevent their messiah from taking any heat on this?


Journalist calls out his newspaper’s coverage of IRS scandals –  How dare he expose the mass media cover-up.


Delaware officials admit tax snooping; won’t identify Christine O’Donnell as target  –  They now profess a need to maintain the confidentiality of their victims.

From Jay Leno:

According to a new study, inactivity can kill you. You can die from doing nothing. Believe me. These findings scare the hell out of the Congress.


President Obama told a group of school children that broccoli was his favorite food, and they believed him. Then he told them Obamacare would reduce the deficit and the kids all busted out laughing.

Eliot Spitzer took a big lead in the polls over his madam running against him for city comptroller. New Yorkers have a clear choice. Who do you want with the city’s money, the guy who paid four grand per hooker or the woman who collects four grand per hooker.
Journal Lancet warned that sitting on a couch and doing nothing is as dangerous to your health as smoking or obesity. They said doing nothing can kill you. That’s silly, if inactivity could kill you, the floor of the U.S. Congress would be littered with dead bodies.
Teamsters chief James Hoffa slammed ObamaCare as a disaster for labor unions and their gold-plated health care plans. No one wants it. The very mention of Hoffa’s name made the White House wish ObamaCare would just go away and disappear without a trace.
The U.S. government reported a one hundred twenty billion dollar budget surplus in June. This along with the recent surge on Wall Street, Big Banks, Big Coal cotton prices, and Big Oil. About all President Obama can say about it is that summer colds are the worst.
USA Today published a Census Bureau report saying the U.S. birth rate hit an all-time low last year. Those two-way ultrasounds were a real mistake. The U.S. pregnancy rate was the same as it always was, but the kids saw the national debt and they won’t come out.
Coloradans expressed fury when lawmakers proposed a thirty-five percent sales tax on pot sales. It’s amazing. Democrats worked so hard to turn Colorado into a blue state, and in less time than it takes you to roll a joint it’s going to be more Republican than Texas.
Eliot Spitzer gained an opponent for New York Comptroller Tuesday, namely the madam in his hooker sex scandal. She said he’ll be a poor steward of the city’s cash reserves. She has five witnesses who will testify that every time Eliot makes a deposit, he loses interest.
The U.S. Senate considered a bill which could freeze student loan interest rates below market rates Tuesday. The college loan program is helping to inspire a new generation of Americans. Forty percent of college kids in a recent poll say they want to be loan sharks.

DemonRats still trying to cover up IRS abuses

Posted by taxguru on July 19, 2013

IRS is their official collection agency to take as much money from people as possible.  Illegal tactics are acceptable to most Dims, who see money for their pet causes as more important than anything else, including something as antique as Constitutional rights.


The Obama administration scandals that wont go away: Benghazi and the IRS have staying power as Congress gears up for yet another series of public hearings   –  So many scandals, so little time.


IRS Hearings: Republicans Ask Questions, Democrats Attack Issa  –  As always, when the Dims can’t dispute the facts, they resort to personal attacks against the accusers.


How high did it go? Republicans to step up pressure on IRS at scandal hearing –  As always, the questions is whether or not the GOP will show any backbone in holding the IRS criminals and their superiors in the BHO Regime accountable.


IRS lawyer says scandal was overseen by D.C., names names –  Any guess as to how many of those named will be prosecuted?  None by Holder and his criminal Justice dept.


DOJ in hot seat after declining to prosecute alleged IRS abuse –  Holder is biggest crook to ever hold the AG office since Janet El Reno used that position to cover up the multitude of Clinton crimes. 


IRS officials in Washington ordered special scrutiny: congressional investigation finds –  No surprise here.


Watchdog decries ‘unprecedented’ treatment by Dems at IRS hearing


Dems set sights on IRS watchdog –  How dare he publicize the IRS crimes.


Feds admit improper scrutiny of candidate, donor tax records –  But no punishment of the criminals because they were just doing their part to help the BHO Regime.


Former GOP Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell told her tax records were breached –  Don’t hold your breath waiting for the IRS employees who violated her confidentiality to ever be punished, much less criminally prosecuted.


IRS says tax snooper was no agency worker –  The finger pointing never ends.


A Bombshell in the IRS Scandal – Peggy Noonan exposes the direct link to the office of the chief counsel.
