So the Dems found a "conservative Republican working for the IRS". I
wonder how much they had to pay this unnamed person to fall on the sword?
Excellent question, ijm. You beat me to it.
It doesn't make any difference whether the person was a Republican or
Democrat, they need to lose their job and pay the penalty for their actions.
However I don't believe all they are telling us. The very fact they only
release part of the info Indicates there is much more to know.Even the little
part I have heard tells me that.Mr. cummings has hardly asked any tough or
searching questions. He only takes his time to give a speech saying we should
not be partisan and attacks the republicans for trying to get to the whole
So now we have the rogue "conservative Republican" who did this all on
his own? Right. I believe this like I believe our government
isn't spying on us (or the AP), that Holder destroyed all information
obtained through the spying that never happened, that the killing of our
nation's ambassador to Libya in Benghazi was the result of a YouTube video,
and that the ambassador never requested help, that our government had nothing to
do with Fast and Furious, that there was never any targeting of conservatives by
the IRS, that Obamacare is going to make my healthcare more affordable, and that
none of these stories is newsworthy. And thanks to the Deseret News
for assisting the White House (being complicit) in burying these scandals. This
sure builds trust, doesn't it.
The first paragraph of this story is not believable.Rep. Cummings is
trying to sugar coat a poisonous meal.
Look, a SQUIRREL!Or, in this case, an alleged "conservative
Republican."Sorry, I do not believe any of the Democrats are up
for telling the truth, even if they knew it. Bottom line is that
this was a deliberate attempt to intimidate conservatives and suppress the voter
education and turnout efforts. It clearly was supported from the highest levels
of the Democrat thugocracy, even if not explicitly ordered.
Well, if Eric Holder, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, or other top
Democrats say it, then it must by true. Right?It looks like this
whole thing is settled then. That was easy! How about we settle the whole
Holocaust conspiracy by finding an 'unnamed' former German officer who
said he personally shot a few Jews, but there was no widespread genocide. Easy
as that!With this news, I'm going to sleep a lot more easily
tonight.(By the way, this is sarcasm; it's too bad there is no
It must have been very difficult to get that liberal Democrat to claim to be a
conservative Republican. A simple check of his campaign contributions should be
very informative.A Democrat telling the truth is as rare as a turkey
voting for thanksgiving.
He is the Lieutenant Calley for the IRS. In the military, with all the
artillery they always had a smoking gun. This smells fishy to me and with all
the problems the House and Senate hearings and people pleading the 5th, there
must be much more. It is hard to believe that the stumbling block for the IRS
would be a "conservative" Republican. He or she must be the only one
that claimed to be a Republican in the whole agency. Hopefully, that person
won't end up in the park without evidence of lung functions on a dark
night. That is a high end problem with computer reprogramming and forms
initiation and a database and computer system analysis and configuration board
at high levels with integrated systems in various hubs within the IRS. That
isn't done at a low level and is very high level and not just one person
that is conservative with a vendetta against the Tea Party and other
conservative groups.What evil lurks in the hearts of men and women?
Only the shadow knows and not the heads at the IRS know who signed off on the
high commands. They had too many conferences.
It is entertaining to read all the conspiracy theories here. Glenn
Beck devotees perchance?
OOH-H-H-H-H-H...It was a conservative Republican, out of concern for appearing
"political" and--bless his heart--wanted to be "consistent in
reviewing applications" who started this whole mess!!! By golly, I agree
with Rep. Cummings that this thang is solved and we should just move on. Yup. I
can sleep tonight now. It was definitely a non-political and totally,
completely, consistent approach in their treatment of conservative groups,
wouldn't you say?Let's see, moving on...I'll bet the
whistle blower on the NSA's cell phone and email mining was conservative,
Who trusts the Federal government? Not me and I will bet a buck few others do.
Ever since the Democrats took power confidence in the government has shot south.
They STILL blame George W. Bush for crying out loud. These people are a mess and
that makes them dangerous. The IRS, cover ups at the Justice Dept, now the Air
Force is trying to force its members to not read the reports of Obama
administration treachery. Yet Obama and company continue to rip our rights away
a piece at a time and say they are not but blame Bush. Excuse after excuse
compounded by more excuses. And the media keeps on letting them get away with
We have too many freedoms in our country for people to care about government
taking one of them away. We have the freedoms to violate the 10 commandments,
if we choose. That has existed for years but now it is becoming mandatory.
Oops, mandatory almost means that the government is pretty close to stating we
have to or face the consequence. Is that really freedom. Maybe God was right
when he wrote the 10 commandments. Maybe He was right when the Founding Fathers
were inspired to be cautious about too much government in our lives. We
over-reacted with the Patriot Act as some would interpret it the way Stalin and
Hitler would have interpreted it. It doesn't say that you can do
somethings so maybe that means we can do it. The legal experts always find
holes in a document of law to wiggle what they want out of it. When you read
the golden rule, some have read that to mean do unto others as You would want to
do and do it first. It means to love one another means you would want to do
unto others as you would have them do to you.
Abolish federal income taxes, and the IRS. We've done it for 137 years.Problem solved.
"A self-described conservative Republican... set in motion the review, the
top Democrat on the House watchdog committee said Sunday."Wait a
minute, I didn't know George W. Bush worked for the IRS.
Democrat--Republican:Seventeen trillion dollar debt, country at war,
messed up education, and a weak economy says there is no difference.We just don't get it. Do we?Did Obama, all by himself, really
have the time to corrupt the IRS, and write out the health care plan? Who else
So much for the Democrat's high road. Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md is giving
mendacity a bad name.
