President Obama Demands Justice For "Intolerable And Inexcusable" IRS Behavior

Tyler Durden's picture


We can picture the scene of abject horror at the revelations the President read about the actions undertaken by what must surely have been a rogue element in the IRS. However, as the AP (ironically) reports, Obama believes some IRS employees failed to apply the law fairly and impartially. The blame, it would seem, is being laid at "lax managers'" feet for allowing this practice to continue for 18 months. Jack Lew has been asked to hold those renegades responsible and to ensure it never happens again - or else. Where's Fabrice Tourre when you need him?


White House Statement:

The White House


Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release
May 14, 2013
Statement by the President


I have now had the opportunity to review the Treasury Department watchdog’s report on its investigation of IRS personnel who improperly targeted conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status.  And the report’s findings are intolerable and inexcusable.  The federal government must conduct itself in a way that’s worthy of the public’s trust, and that’s especially true for the IRS.  The IRS must apply the law in a fair and impartial way, and its employees must act with utmost integrity.  This report shows that some of its employees failed that test.


I’ve directed Secretary Lew to hold those responsible for these failures accountable, and to make sure that each of the Inspector General’s recommendations are implemented quickly, so that such conduct never happens again.  But regardless of how this conduct was allowed to take place, the bottom line is, it was wrong.  Public service is a solemn privilege.  I expect everyone who serves in the federal government to hold themselves to the highest ethical and moral standards.  So do the American people.  And as President, I intend to make sure our public servants live up to those standards every day.

Via AP,

President Barack Obama says a government watchdog's report shows intolerable and inexcusable behavior by the Internal Revenue Service in targeting tea party groups.


Obama says in a statement that some IRS employees failed to apply the law fairly and impartially.


Obama says he's asked Treasury Secretary Jack Lew to hold accountable those responsible and to ensure it never happens again. He says regardless of how it happened, it was wrong.


The report from the Treasury inspector general for tax administration blames ineffective IRS management for allowing agents to improperly target tea party groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax exempt status. It says lax managers allowed the practice to continue for 18 months.


The IRS apologized for the practice Friday. The Justice Department is also investigating.

I hadn't thought about this - but where are Obama's past girlfriends - surely he had at least one? No past girl friends popping up anywhere?

Strange - strange to the point of being downright weird!

OK, this is just plain old common sense, no political agendas for either side. Just common knowledge for citizens of a country, especially American citizens, who know every little tidbit about every other president (and their wives) that even know that Andrew Jackson's wife smoked a corn cob pipe and was accused of adultery, or that Lincoln never went to school or Kennedy wore a back brace, or Truman played the piano.

Our media vets these things out! We are known for our humanitarian interests and caring for our 'fellow man.' We care, but none of us know one single humanizing fact about the history of our own president. Honestly, and this is a personal thing... but it's bugged me for years that no one who ever dated him ever showed up. Taken his charisma, which caused the women to be drawn to him so obviously during his campaign, looks like some lady would not have missed the opportunity.

We all know about JFK's magnetism, McCain was no monk, Palin's courtship and even her athletic prowess were probed. Biden's aneurisms are no secret. Look at Cheney and Clinton-we all know about their heart problems. How could I have left out Wild Bill before or during the White House?

Nope... not one lady has stepped up and said, "He was soooo shy," or "What a great dancer!" Now look at the rest of what we know... no classmates, not even the recorder for the Columbia class notes ever heard of him. Who was the best man at his wedding? Start there. Check for groomsmen. Then get the footage of the graduation ceremony.

Has anyone talked to the professors? Isn't it odd that no one is bragging that they knew him or taught him or lived with him. When did he meet Michele and how? Are there photos? Every president provides the public with all their photos, etc. for their library. What has he released? Nada - other than what was in this so-called biography! And experts who study writing styles etc. claim it was not O's own words or typical of his speech patterns, etc.

Does this make any of you wonder?

Ever wonder why no one ever came forward from Obama's past, saying they knew him, attended school with him, was his friend, etc? Not one person has ever come forward from his past. This should really be a cause for great concern. Did you see the movie titled, The Manchurian Candidate?

Let's face it. As insignificant as we all are... someone whom we went to school with remembers our name or face... someone remembers we were the clown or the dork or the brain or the quiet one or the bully or something about us. George Stephanopoulos, ABC News said the same thing during the 2008 campaign. Even George questions why no one has acknowledged that the president was in their classroom or ate in the same cafeteria or made impromptu speeches on campus.

Stephanopoulos was a classmate of Obama at Columbia-class of 1984. He says he never had a single class with him. Since he is such a great orator, why doesn't anyone in Obama's college class remember him? And, why won't he allow Columbia to release his records? Do you like millions of others, simply assume all this is explainable - even though no one can?


Looking for evidence of Obama's past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there, but not one remembers him. For example, Wayne Allyn Root was (like Obama) a political science major at Columbia, who graduated in 1983. In 2008, Root says of Obama, "I don't know a single person at Columbia that knew him, and they all know me. I don't have a single classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia ... EVER!

Nobody recalls him.

Root adds that he was, "Class of '83 political science, pre-law" and says, "You don't get more exact or closer than that.. Never met him in my life, don't know anyone who ever met him." At our 20th class reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me. No one ever heard of Barack! And five years ago, nobody even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who's kind of the, as we say in New York , 'the macha' who knows everybody, has yet to find a person, a human who ever met him."

Obama's photograph does not appear in the school's yearbook, and Obama consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia, provide school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or friendswhile at Columbia.

How can this be?

NOTE: Wayne Allyn Root can easily be verified. He graduated valedictorian from his high school, Thornton-Donovan School, then graduated from Columbia University in 1983 as a Political Science major in the same '83 class in which Barack Hussein Obama states he was.

Some other interesting questions.

Why was Obama's law license inactivated in 2002?

Why was Michelle's law license inactivated by court order?

According to the U.S. Census, there is only one Barack Obama - but 27 Social Security numbers and over 80 aliases..


The Social Security number he uses now originated in Connecticut where he is never reported to have lived.

No wonder all his records are sealed! One of the biggest CONS this country has ever seen, and getting away with it.

Curious ... it hinges on the definition of 'foreign', in her mind (he claims from an old memory), and of it being the same person, which he can't really be certain that it is, but he thinks it most probably is.

Wed, 05/15/2013 - 00:50 | 3563648 palmereldritch
palmereldritch's picture

That characterization of the 'foreign student' ultimately is irrelevant because it is the ID issue of the postman (excellent observers, community chroniclers and police witnesses by traditional investigational standards) and his recollection of BHO and young Obama's statements that are the main issue. 

Strange that you would focus on such a minor footnote.  The issue is not so much the birth certificate/'foreign' aspect which appears to be a red herring vis a vis his birth. But the birth certificate issue does potentially cover the possibly that the father, Obama Sr., was not the actual birth father and that it was instead Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA propagandistas suggested and effectively argued here:

Wed, 05/15/2013 - 01:27 | 3563699 Element
Element's picture

That is the essence of his statement, the essential crux of it, it all hinges on him being the "young black", "foreign student", with a "strange name", and whether that student was Obama, or not. (sorry, that isn't a minor footnote) Why would I not think this is by far the most significant aspect of that video, if I'm assessing its content and evidence? Because if that is not so, then that video would contain nothing of veracity to suggest that he's talking about Obama, as being the "foreign student". The old guy says he doesn't know, that he is presuming it is the same person - but he doesn't know.

The only other interesting part of that video I see is this couple, who assisted the black guy he talked to in the street, with his education, whom he says he's positive was in fact Obama.

Gotta say, the emotive music score does not lend to its credibility, so I ignored it and focused just on the content. I fucking hate how people put such music on videos, because you immediately know someone put it there as a post-production processing device specifically to suck you in and draw emotional conclusions. You'd be amazed how many people would watch that, and not notice the music is even there and fucking with them. It tries to be subliminal, to elicit what the producer wants viewers to think, because it is a filtered "Production" that you're watching, when such music is present.

I see in your link the video comes from a documentary. Did you assume I already knew about the video, and its context? Never heard of it before.

But that's my take on what it contains.

Thanks Doc,

"Lt. Col. Jay Folds announced the action in an e-mail sent to the unit, in which he pledged to “crush any rules violators” and said that “we are, in fact, in a crisis right now.”

That's a particularly interesting comment coming from a Lieutenant Colonel ... on an RT site too ... by which he means a nuclear crisis.

DPRK, Russia, China, Paki

Looks to me like USAF and thus Joint Chiefs are making sure the US is 100% ready to Launch-on-Warning, which means they're at an elevated nuclear alert level.

Also wondering how RT got hold of that email.

 The only other interesting part of that video I see is this couple, who assisted the black guy he talked to in the street, with his education,

They were the parents of Bill Ayers.  You do know who he is don't you?

In 2008, Obama’s spokesman Robert Gibbs, a guest at Chris Matthews’ show at MSNBC, denied that the 1960s domestic terrorist Weather Underground  Bill Ayers held a fundraiser in his living room for Barack Obama.  Obama was a neophyte Chicago outsider who wanted to enter Chicago politics and was appointed by Alice Palmer  as her successor for state senate while she run for Congress. Last week, Bill Ayers told in an interview  for the left-wing Daily Beast about his relationship with Obama. He confirmed that he and Obama were “friendly”, “both served two boards together “

I don't like or dislike the guy.  Nothing personal.

I do dislike fraud and lack of transparency in systems that appear to undermine constitutional freedoms and economic plurality. And if he is a contributor to such falsity, he should be exposed.  Simple reps and warranties.

And I'm not convinced completely about the Frank Marshall Davis angle either though the evidence is compelling and the story fantastic.

Check out this comparison and look at FMD's and BHO's eye shape, upper lip cleavage and propensity for large moles in both then compare with Barack Sr.'s son's image in the upper right hand corner.

Easy: he's gay; his father is frank Marshall, a communist that somehow "turned" by the FBI and used to infiltrate commie and left wing groups; his mother and grand parents are CIA; somewhere and somehow he is given a new SSN and his Selective Service records are modified (Mmm" what org could and would do that?!); he was probably placed and used to infiltrate left wing groups while "attending" Occidental; he did so well at Occidental that he was "promoted" to Columbia but then was sent overseas or into training (who knows); his first post-Columbia job was at a known CIA front firm on Wall St.; we are supposed to believe that this narcissist was "awakened" and went off to south Chicago to organize poor blacks (rightttt!); looks like he was really a CIA plant being used to infiltrate the left and "machine" of Chicago; he did so well that the Chicago left and "machine" sent him off to law school at Harward; someone, had a Saudi prince donate a million dollars to Harvard and viola, the non-writing law student is the first black Law Review editor, and he still doesn't write even as editor; next he's back in Chicago and getting conveniently "married"; he moves up through the political "machine" of Illinois and Chicago due to the efforts and sponsorship of BOTH his "machine" and CIA handlers (can't lose); next thing one knows he's running for POTUS and three of his boyfriends are shot execution style and the Chicago police and "media" don"t even blink; now he is a supposed left wing POTUS that just happens to do fascist and right-wing things.

And what are YOU doing, Mr. Snark? Just another of the new castrati, cowering in the pen and covered in wool. You want to piss on and ignore the (currently) civil responses taking place because they don't meet with your expectations, fine. Read a book and learn the American Revolution didn't start overnight, either; five years from the Boston Massacre to the 'shot heard 'round the world', which was fired over a matter of weapons confiscation. Several states attempted to avoid secession and the Civil War for years by attempting to impede federal usurpations legislatively before giving the matter over to arms.

You really want blood in the streets? You ready for it to be yours?

Rumor has it that Obama is gay.. There were no girlfriends, just a composite.. Who actually knows. His entire past is scrubbed. There is a story out there that says Rev. Wright & Jesse Jackson arranged the marriage.. Michelle was best friends with Jackson's daughter growing up.. They knew Obama needed a wife & 2.5 kids to be president & not a member of the gay bath house in Chicago.. They knew no one would want to marry Michelle because she was a real bitch, so they promised her all the money she could ever want & a life of luxury.. Now you know why they take separate vacations..

Who actually knows the whole truth? Not sure we will ever find out buy anyone who tried to speak up or get the truth out was silenced or ridiculed.. It was Alinsky at its best..

Let's just hope this American Nightmare will end shortly..

Jesse Jackson had plans to push Jesse Jackson Junior into the white house, making him the first black president.  But his plans were dashed when it became clear that Jr.'s drug habit and bi-polar issues were going to be deal breakers.  About this time, Obama was introduced to Rev. Wright and Jesse Jackson.  Rev. Wright's church had a Down Low Club for gay members and Obama is seen with them.  Jesse Jackson's daughter had a best friend named Michelle Robinson.  Michelle practically grew up in Jackson's home.  The marriage between Barack and Michelle was arranged to help launch Obama's political career.  And mysteriously, all within 40 days of each other, 3 openly gay members of Rev. Wright's church are shot and killed- Donald Young, Larry Bland, and Nate Spencer.  Rev. Wright is strangely silent and unconcerned that 3 of his congregation are dead.

Some puppets go without limbs, but it seems like it would be an important part of bringing the puppet to life. Find rigid items for arms that will maintain their shape and position even while dancing around on a puppet stage. Chop sticks, popsicle sticks or even real sticks all fit the bill nicely. Legs don't necessarily need to be rigid, but it's neat if they are pliable. Pipe cleaners attach easily and can be bent to show different postures (standing, sitting, etc.) Or, perhaps you've decided your puppet doesn't need legs because you are hiding that part of the puppet under the stage anyway. Again, consider how you will be presenting your puppet and what things you want it to be able to do when adding limbs.

How is it Obama is completely clueless on everything going on in his own government, particularly the executive?

IRS people are government drones, albeit with a nasty bite. This would not just originate and then propogate from a few hacked off anti-conservative desk jockeys. To be this widespread or prevalent and universally applied it had to come from very high up in the IRS. Where is Geithner, now?

Do you think anyone significant will be "found", held "accountable" and punished?

Wed, 05/15/2013 - 00:30 | 3563611 lewy14

Exactly. Which is why there will be no real betrayal.

Already there is a counter story and it will be pushed relentlessly: the right wing was flooding the zone with money after Citizens United. The Tea Baggers were all running bogus orgs and they had the investigations coming. Besides, racist orgs don't get tax exempt status and everyone knows the Teabags are just racists. They hate the "shortcut" for singling them out because it worked! The IRS guys are heros and pros. 

The Obama partisans are among the most ruthless we've seen in decades. Obama knows that his grassroots will not abandon him for this (it's a feature, not a bug). About a third of the country is in the bag for him regardless; he will never sink as low as W. did in the polls. 

So it pays to stonewall - if Holder survives and nobody at the IRS pays any real price, the partisans will take care of the narrative. All the whistleblowers will get shafted, the press will understand that their comms are tapped and their sources gagged and their colleagues are dropping dimes on them. Whiners in the press will get the Bob Woodward treatment or worse.

And anybody with a dollar to donate to anybody will make sure they donate to the right people or they can just tattoo #fml on their forehead, because they will be living completely fucked lives courtesy every three and four letter agency that exists (and some that don't).

What we're seeing here is a civil war among the Democrats - the Maoist insurgency led (nominally) by Obama has nothing to gain with "make nice" at this point, doublining down on the ruthless is the only path he has. It may well succeed; no other player in this Game of Thrones has as much conviction of purpose. Certainly not the Republicans.

As to "who is on our side", well, nobody, of course. It's just a spectator sport for the rest of us. Whoever wins will be heir to a vastly expanded surveillance network, a press with its teeth kicked in and its ass bugged and chipped, and a public desensitized to political rough play and water sports.

So it turns out now there's a little cascade going on; what was a strain within the ascendant faction is now a rift. These things happen.

Prediction is truly futile but my money is on Obama's faction here. They have nothing to gain from being defensive and much to gain from going all in.

Not an endorsement; I'd bet on horses or dogs too if I had a hunch.
