Settlement: Conservative Groups Get Justice After Obama IRS Scandal

297

Years after conservative Tea Party groups first complained that they were being targeted for unfair extra scrutiny by the Obama administration’s IRS, they are finally getting their just rewards. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced this week that the Department of Justice has settled several lawsuits against the administration, putting behind us Obama’s use of the federal government as an instrument for political warfare.

Though the mainstream media gave the Obama administration plenty of cover when the scandal broke wide open in 2013, they couldn’t entirely hide the truth from public view. The allegations were too egregious, too brazen, and too true to be ignored. Under the direction of IRS official Lois Lerner, the IRS specifically set conservative nonprofits aside for additional scrutiny and kept them waiting for years before granting them the tax exemptions they deserved under existing tax law. Groups with names like “Tea Party” or “Patriots” were subject to an intense screening process that was not applied to political groups on the left.

“The IRS’s use of these criteria as a basis for heightened scrutiny was wrong and should never have occurred,” Sessions said. “It is improper for the IRS to single out groups for different treatment based on their names or ideological positions.”

In addition to an undisclosed monetary settlement with the groups – which number more than 400 at this point – the IRS offered a courtroom apology to the plaintiffs.

“The IRS admits that its treatment of Plaintiffs during the tax-exempt determination process, including screening their applications based on their names or policy positions, subjecting those applications to heightened scrutiny and inordinate delays, and demanding some Plaintiffs’ information that TIGTA determined was unnecessary to the agency’s determination of their tax-exempt status, was wrong,” the IRS said. “For such treatment, the IRS expresses its sincere apology.”

While it’s encouraging to see these groups get the apology and money due them, we can’t help but continue to be frustrated that this was never a bigger deal – media-wise – than it was. In the Age of Trump, of course, we’re not surprised by anything the liberal press does or doesn’t do, but their dedicated refusal to cover this story properly is one of the great media shames of the 21st century. You have Obama apologists going around claiming that his presidency was “scandal free,” which is something too many people actually believe. Not because it’s true but because the first black president was granted an umbrella of press protection never before seen in political history.

    They need to go after Lerner and fire the guy who took her place IMMEDIATELY. The damage is done, but the power of deterrence needs to be utilized so this can never happen again, should by some miracle, the dumbocrats regain the white house. God Forbid.

      John Koskinen is out the door early next month.

      1. Ronnie Cowlishaw says

        The dickhead should have already been gone!

  2. Justin Seine says

    Yet the taxpayer is on the hook for making the Tea Party whole and the reprobates who perpetrated it are tanning their sorry butts on some tropical beach enjoying life paid for by overly generous taxpayer funded pensions! Justice????

    1. Pat Leach says

      Any settlement to the Tea Party groups should come directly out of Lerner’s pension and the others who followed her directions.

      1. Tired... says

        That would be a great place to start, but much more should happen. When there is an abuse of power like this, it has to be addressed or the country will eventually fall.

  3. Retired says

    Why is no one in jail or lost their job and benefits , until that happens nothing will change in the US .

    1. davidmuscalo says

      Exactly! The miscreants must be tried, convicted and incarcerated!

      1. SNUFFER says

        OBLOWZO FIRST THEN ALL THE CARD PLAYERS WILL FALL. AFTER THE FIRST COONVICTION – THEN THE REST OF THE COTTON PICKERS HEADS WILL ROLL- THEY WILL BE SCRAMBLING FOR OPEN AIR IN THE TANK AT THE LOCAL LOCKUP!

          can’t convict Obama that would make you a racist for sure

          1. SNUFFER says

            YOU DON’T EVEN MAKE SENSE- FIGURE OUT WHAT MESSAGE TO CONVEY AND HOW TO PUT THE WORDS IN THE RIGHT THE ORDER FOR THEM TO MEAN SOMETHING BEFORE YOU START 1 FINGER TYPING. DUFUS!

            you talking about barry boy ? The N1663R from Kenya ?

          5. Retired says

            That is why Congress slept for 8 years , they did not want to be labeled RACIST come election time .

          6. Tim says

            I’d rather be racist than a thief and liar like Bitch McComical & Paul Ryno

          7. Retired says

            Them 2 are not the only problem , there are many on both sides that are power hungry .

          8. gonzales27 says

            Maybe convict the white part of him and cut the sentence in half

          9. richard king says

            Everybody with a white skin who doesn’t tow the party line is called a racist anyway. I am inured to it,but perhaps Obama, the true racist, is not, yet.

    2. justanagent says

      Agree…there has to be some punishment for the guilty and compensation for those they discriminated against.

      1. Greg says

        So when do the trials start for the Ku Klux Klan and the Nazi’s. There is some serious discrimination and harm going on with those individuals and groups. Are they part of the group that was discriminated against?

        1. Joseph Carrilho says

          It’s not my fault that someone’s great, great grandfather was a slave.
          It’s not my fault that some people died when Genghis Khan rampaged.

          1. Greg says

            It is if you did not learn anything from it beyond hating.

          2. Lizzie2 says

            Yes….but what have YOU done to better our society. Also, what side would you have been on during the Civil War?

          3. Pam says

            I would have told President Lincoln to definitely carry through on his declaration that every slave should have been repatriated to their country of origin.

          4. Retired says

            Lizzie ain’t gona like them there thoughts !!!

          5. Pam says

            Too bad it’s a fact supported in his letters.

          6. Tim says

            and his white supremacist speeches. He and Hitlery are both two faced liars (second to last debate)(10 minutes in)

          7. eric says

            that was done and many black Americans founded the African country of Liberia .. And than proceeded to get slaves them selves . Slavery is not so bad , It is better than other alternatives . It is not mentioned in the bible as one of the 10 commandments to not do , such as do not kill . Almost every ethnic group has some time or another been held as slaves . It has proven to be a good place for backwards people to catch up to a more advanced society .

          8. SNUFFER says

            WHAT???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

          9. Pam says

            There was a mostly British movement started that was supported later by $100,000. from America to help those 15,000 who chose to leave. That took place between 1820 and the American Civil War. The initial attempts in 1772 by the British were unsuccessful as they most all died of disease and warfare. By the time those from America joined ,which was only 1,100 people ,Liberia and Sierra Leone was established and recognized as the first democratic republic in African history. We all know how that has played out in history today. That happened before Lincoln and the Civil War. Anybody who thinks slavery is a opportunity must be the one cracking the whip.

          10. SNUFFER says

            THANKS FOR THE HISTORY LESSON ?

          11. Pam says

            Sorry didn’t mean to lecture just was thinking about putting his irrelevant post in context.

          12. SNUFFER says

            SORRY, EXPLANATION WELL TAKEN. GOOD EVENING!

          13. Tim says

            save people from witch doctors and VOO DOO and they adore the shams of a witch like Hitlery and health care from a N1663R from Kenya ? You can take the boy out of the jungle………..

          14. Tim says

            go read a thing called a “book” snuffy. One the government didn’t publish

          15. SNUFFER says

            YES SIR TIMMIE BOY- I’LL JUST JUMP TO MY FEET AND DO EXACTLY WHAT YOU SAY THEIR MR. INTELLIGENT OBAMA BUDDY.

          16. Mathew Molk says

            Maybe not it the bible, but it sure as hell is a big sin to me.

          17. Tim says

            or stay in a victim hood mentality all your life. Even if a millionaire football player

          18. evangelinebrabant says

            In the Antebellum United States, anyone could own slaves, and many blacks did.
            In North Carolina alone, there were 69 black slave owners, and some were very wealthy.

            All cultures have owned slaves. The Indians in North and South America had slaves and were slaves. The Indians in the U.S. made war for slaves.

          19. Retired says

            Are you here to stir up trouble, it sure seams that way ????

          20. Tim says

            I would be on the side of the first 10 laws the founders gave US in the Bill of Rights. They state what the government CANNOT do to the citizen. I think burning, stealing and murdering would come under that. Then these nice yankees went out west to do the same to the Indians. These loving souls even enslaved their own children to sweatshops that were very hazardous. THAT criminal activity started the unions in Amerika. You see what the yankees did with that institution ? HA HA Explain your side Lizzie2

          21. Tim says

            we are waiting……..

          22. evangelinebrabant says

            The Founders did not give us those “laws,” and they were not laws.

            The Founders said that these were inherent, sacred rights granted to all people by their creator, by natural law, or by sacred right.

            They were saying that a piece of paper did not grant those rights, that they the Founders did not grant those rights.

            Your post is ridiculous. Are you on something?

        2. Tired... says

          So you see no difference between the deliberate misuse of a massive federal bureaucracy to silence voices on one side during a Presidential election and discredited groups of misguided individuals who most people find irrelevant? The fact that the Klan and Nazi’s are bad (as is Antifa, by the way) does not justify what the IRS did. They are two separate issues.

          1. Greg says

            The idea that any individual or group uses Democracy to achieve their own personal agenda at the expense of others is offensive. Those people that are elected are not doing the job on either side if the basic premise and promise of our government is not being protected and upheld. Pointing at the other side is not solving the underlying problem.

          2. Tired... says

            Then we agree on that point.

          3. Lizzie2 says

            Hope you are not a Trump voter!

          4. Retired says

            Tired>>> The same should go for the Media .

          5. Tired... says

            Agreed.

          6. Tim says

            when the government is corrupt, IT is called a vendetta (like the mafia)

          7. G.Mann says

            Absolutely. In the case of Lois Lerner/IRS misuse of power, the issue was “Do these groups qualify as Not for Profit standing according to IRS regulations”

            KKK, Nazi, and Antifia do NOT qualify as “not for profit” by any stretch of imagination. Besides, I find no record of any of them making IRS application for 501 3c status…. so who ever raised the comparison did a fine job of injecting confusion in this conversation.

          8. Tim says

            the “groups” were made up of citizens…GMann Do they qualify ?

          9. Lizzie2 says

            Refresh my memory….what has the IRS done lately?

          10. Tired... says

            Since I have been talking about Lois Lerner, your point is unclear. Perhaps you can shed some light on your thought process.

          11. Retired says

            She just jumps in to stir things up .

          12. eric says

            She doesn’t not bother me at all . She has every right to talk . ,And she is some what right on many things such as black lives do matter .

          13. Retired says

            She has a right to talk , but it would be nice if she would return a comment when asked . As far as BLM goes All lives matter . if you looked at the stats there are just as many non Blacks shot every year just the media does not point them out and many are suicide by cop . Then there is the BLM that translates to Blue Lives Matter !!! We have many Black cops that are decent people and the bad ones were sent packing .

          14. Mathew Molk says

            Not true.. MOST people shot by the police are White. —Even according to the FBI crime stats.

          15. Retired says

            Not according to BLM and the Media , but you have read the same as I have .

          16. Retired says

            Doubt she will answer . has a good track record for that .

          17. Tim says

            Tired, NEVER encourage the unstable. They CANNOT think, stupid ! Move on

          18. eric says

            Lois. Lerner’s IRS has paid some compensation to the tea party that they refused to give tax exempt status to for a long time . I’am not satisfied I want her and the people involved in prison . I had to suffer 4 more years of Obama , !0 trillion more debt . Maybe 50 trillion cash settlement would be OK In some countries corrupt public employees would get the death penalty ..

          19. Tim says

            stealing, seizing, destroying, hassling, abusing, ruining, running amok, lying

        3. justanagent says

          Before you can have a trial a crime must be committed and an indictment issued. The KKK, BLM, Nazis and Antifa are all just opposite sides of the same dirty coins. They are all despicable in that they all promote racism, violence, anarchy and contempt for the rule of law. As disgusting as these groups are simply being affiliated with them is not a crime. Free speech and freedom of association are protected by the first amendment. If any of them
          commit a crime such as arson, vandalism or assault then they can and should be arrested. Just promoting an offensive and radical ideology is not a crime.

          1. pineapple says

            “They are all despicable in that they all promote racism, violence, anarchy and contempt for the rule of law.”

            Sounds like a description of the Democrat Party.

          2. Greg says

            Your point is valid. When crimes are committed why are they not charged? Should the agencies that overlook the crimes be charged? Or do you believe that the crimes are not committed and therefore irrelevant?

          3. justanagent says

            I am a retired state law enforcement agent and have always been frustrated and sometimes even angry when the criminal justice system fails and criminals escape justice. I’m not talking about petty misdemeanors. That’s just business, but it could become personal when a major felony offender walked away. the most common cause is a lazy or incompetent prosecutor. Sometimes prosecutors are corrupt or politically compromised. Sometimes the investigator is lazy or incompetent and does a poor job preparing the case. The problem I see at the national level is that the institutions we have in the past trusted have become politicized and corrupt. The only real solution is a few much needed amendments to our Constitution to re-empower the states and enable them to hold the national government accountable. That will require an article 5 convention of states. I have done my part to get a resolution passed in Texas but we need more states to get on board. BTW I have come to the conclusion that the time has come to abolish the FBI and create a new and uncompromised national criminal investigative service. Former FBI employees should be free to apply but they would all have to be revetted.

          4. Michael Dennewitz says

            I still say – when MR TRUMP was sworn in, he should have fired everydamnedone and started all over again.. 😁

          5. Retired says

            Don’t you think he would have liked to do that , just think how Congress and the media would have reacted .

          6. Mathew Molk says

            Right on. He should have run them all down the road before the echo of him taking the oath of office died down.

            still , I think he has a plan and besides. He is the President and I am not. I continue to stick with him right to the end of the line. – Got to dance with the guy that brung ya.

          7. Tim says

            after all….Bill Clinton got rid of all the honest lawyers, didn’t he ?

          8. Tim says

            IF “we” pay them a salary and they don’t do their job, isn’t THAT fraud ? With all this evidence, you people STILL have no idea how corrupt Amerika is. This is NOT the republic the founders gave US ! Will it be restored ?

          9. Retired says

            A lot of bench legislation would have to be removed for it to happen and many are still hoping for change .

          10. Tim says

            so stealing is legal for some Amerikans ? The second amendment states that shooting those kind of people (in government) is a way to save the country from tyrants. Alter, abolish, separate from such to preserve our “safety & happiness”

          11. Retired says

            Looting and destroying property are not free speech except in the eyes of the ACLU that keeps supporting them .

          12. Pam says

            Amen and we have laws against civil disobedience if they would enforce them.

          13. Retired says

            Outlaw the ACLU is the only solution and if they are non profit take that away from them .

          14. Tim says

            your country is corrupt when only the laws that the press deems important are enforced. Anarchy is next on their schedule. Are you ready ?

          15. Pam says

            Locked and loaded.

          16. Pam says

            Where there are humans there is corruption. The trick is keeping it in check as much as possible.

          17. Tim says

            like a gun trick ? Put the barrel close to the head of the criminal and see if it misfires ? YEA ! I’m good with that. Was a great fix back in the Viet nam days. Gassing & burning is the FBI’s way of dealing with non-violent men, women & children in Waco Texas. Looking the other way when demonrats break the law. Not all humans are corrupt. I learned what BLM stands for today. Blacks Lack Morals

          18. eric says

            { absolutely yes } That is what I told the sheriff and county attorney when they did not act .They told me to take the criminal to court .. I told them if I take anybody to court it would be them . I made my county commissioner tell them stealing is against the law .

          19. SNUFFER says

            I’M SURE THE SHERIFF PUT TOGETHER A TASK FORCE JUST BECAUSE YOU TOLD HIM WHAT YOU DID. DAMN IF WE HAVE MORE DU-FUSES LIKE YOU WE WOULD NOT NEED ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY’S TO KEEP THE COMMUNITY SAFE. I’M SURE THEY REALLY PUT THE SHERIFF’S DEPT. INTO HIGH GEAR WITH YOUR MUCH NEEDED INFO AND DEEP THOUGHTS. DID THEY GIVE YOU A PLASTIC BADGE GIVING YOU THE THE KEYS TO THE SHERIFF OFFICE AND TO HIS CRUISER? OR JUST THE FINGER IN PRIVATE WHEN THEY DROVE OFF. HOW HIGH DOES THE WIND NEED TO BLOW TO DISLODGE THESE SQUIRRELS FROM THEIR NESTS? MUST BE NOT A LOT.

          20. Tim says

            the FBI that YOUR taxes funds, gassed & burned 86 people, for Bill Clinton, on LIVE TV in Waco Texas. This same FBI can’t find “intent” of Hitlery’s crimes ? wise up, thou fool

          21. SoftballUmpire says

            Touche–Your reference to Waco is poignant. The MSM would have us believe unproven evils were inherent in Waco but they overlook one fact about dreams and visions. David Koresch had a vision of the demise of the compound. YAHWEH is not in the -practice of providing dreams and or visions for those in league against HIM and HIS WORD. There was some duplicity being disseminated and the Church stood by, saying little about the freedom of religion. I am not saying there wasn’t sin in the compound, but there is sin in every Church. The Waco County Sheriff was always allowed free access, at least that was my understanding. the Feds did not want to trust him and his superior jurisdiction.

          22. Tim says

            IF we are to punish the children for the sins of the parents or pastor, I guess Chelsea Clinton is fair game ? The Kennedy’s were held accountable. George Patton and others were killed by government. The government knew the Japanese were coming to Pearl Harbor. The list is long……

          23. SoftballUmpire says

            I am sorry, I am missing something and don’t understand your jump from Waco and the attack on David Koresch’s compound and Punishment of political children for sins of political parents. I suspect Chelsea’s involvement in the operations may well prove the LORD will hold her responsible for her own actions, rather than making her ‘fair game’ for the actions of either or each of her parents.

            I don’t see the connection. But as you did broach the subject of accountability, Benghazi still glares an an example of Hillary’s escap-e of said ‘accountability’

          24. Tim says

            I just don’t want the FBI to be biased. They are spot on when a truck kills bicyclist in NYC, they storm a house/church where peaceful people live in Waco & Ruby Ridge. When it come to our national security, watching the greatest prostitute in history (Hitlery Rotten Clingon), for YEARS, sell our uranium as if it was in her backyard and then four people are killed on her watch ? What difference does it make ? The whole Evil Empire is corrupt and our pubic serpents want us to pick our noses and leave the BIG things to them ? And YOU are calling balls at about 90 MPH ? I don’t trust YOUR judgement. Just another sheep wanting to make sense of chaos and gladly sending more money to the sissies & perverts in gov’t. Amerikans are so stupid. The LORD wanted His laws enforced on earth. HE will take care of His end, when WE send the offender to his grave. Genesis 9:6, GOD established the death penalty and government in one verse. Obey ye Him ! or suffer

          25. SoftballUmpire says

            I don’t know where you got the idea that I was calling balls @ 90mph. Even top level NCAA pitchers cannot achieve that velocity with a softball. I haven’t worked any fast-pitch game since 2001 I worked slow-pitch because that is where Jesus called me.

            I don’t know your recollection of Medieval literature, but there are a pair of short stories I tend to emulate the principal. “Our Lady’s Tumbler’ and ‘Our Lady’s Juggler’. Performing Arts of any kind was looked upon so negatively by the church that artists could not be buried in a Church Cemetery.

            I am well familiar with this paraphrased version. ‘if by man, man’s blood is shed, them by shall his blood be shed. I have encountered a few of those who shed blood. One soccer, baseball and softball umpire is doing life because he shot and killed his boss. He then called the Linn county Sheriff’s office, reported his crime and waited for the Deputy. That act kept the State from seeking the death penalty.

            The LORD has led me to pray for him periodically. He has been down since October 2003.

          26. Lizzie2 says

            What is your discription of BLM? What do you understand about their purpose?

          27. Retired says

            Most are paid trouble makers and law breakers . All lives should matter and not just the Black . The media makes a bid issue if one gets Shot and very little if a non black gets shot . You would be surprised at the Number of non blacks killed on a yearly basis .

          28. Tim says

            she will make up her own facts, thank you very much. How many has the KLAN killed in the last year ? How many N1663Rs killed blacks and whites last night in Chicago ?

          29. Retired says

            I think NYC outnumbered Chicago yesterday , Media did not report on Chitcago .

          30. eric says

            I think their first purpose was to bring to everyone attention just what they said Black Lives Matter .But they were hacked by politicians that wanted black votes . They have turned into criminal thugs breaking laws and damaging property I could not agree more with their first idea of BLM .But I would rather see many of them in jail for their political activity going from state to state rioting . Check out who is funding them and what they stand for .

          31. Tim says

            the double standard MUST stop

          32. maxtor51 says

            had plenty of lying under oath!!

          33. Mathew Molk says

            It’s called “Testalieing”

          34. maxtor51 says

            Perjury….bug time…so much so she perjured herself in the Benghazi scandal to cover her ass on gun running….got people killed…so veteran brothers….she has been involved in a lot of suspicious deaths since she left Little Rock.

          35. Tim says

            Ya’ll really need to study what started the Klan 152 years ago. The same thing is happening to YOU today. But YOU are a coward and a slave to a gov’t made up of sissies & perverts. (property taxes) The South wanted to be left alone. Communist like to be in control, of EVERY aspect of your life. (slave) enjoy

            while there is no doubt in my mind that the civil war was God’s judgement on this nation for allowing the sin of slavery to continue for as long as it did after our founders laid the template for abolishing it and while there is no doubt that slavery was a major contributing factor it would be wrong to state that the war was fought primarily over the issue of slavery. Had that been the case five “slave states” would not have remained in the Union and fought on .taxes, tariffs, trade and state’s rights. It was the 13th amendment that freed the slaves not the emancipation proclamation. The emancipation proclamation only applied to slaves being held in states “currently in rebellion”. There was a growing moral awareness in both the north and south that slavery was immoral and the industrial revolution was about to make it economically passe. The KKK was born as the “military arm” of the Democrat party it’s purpose being to resist reconstruction as a shadow government, and terrorist organization. Lincoln, incidentally, was a Republican.Just as God judged our sins as a nation with one civil war, I suspect that He may be about to do it again. We certainly deserve it but we have become so jaded and debased that most cannot see it. If anyone doubts my research on the civil war and the rise of the KKK then please check it out for yourself but please take the time to do some real historical research. Don’t just google some revisionist history website.

            you can’t make GOD a hypocrite for enslaving His children on earth. Lincoln freed no one. All were enslaved to the District of Corruption. Did Lincoln make white supremacist speeches ? You agree with the abolitionist John Brown ? Go to steal arms to overthrow plantations ? Then you agree with the abolitionist of today. BLM, ANTI-FA, panthers and other communist think it is OK to burn, loot and destroy to change laws they don’t like. I have studied the truth of what Lincoln did and the yankees after he was killed. Stealing private property from citizens and having them arrested and never charged ? Sound familiar ? Patriot act ? Bet you went to pubic skol ? maybe up north ? Your hero Marxist (Michael) Luther King was getting money from Russia Russia Russia during the cold war. Went to communist training school in Tennessee in 1958. Guess who was shipping the slaves to America…..yankees. IF hypocrisy was food, Amerika could feed the world. Go read some honest history. Lincoln shut down over 100 newspapers for telling the truth about him. Today they lie about everything….and the stupid lap it up ! ! Socialism will fail. The stupid will die. I will shoot them. Like my ancestors, I want to be LEFT ALONE ! 152 years ago, IT was not about slavery. Taking down the statues, made IT about race. The 13% in Amerika will NOT win this one. how foolish can they be ? Ask the SCOTUS. They ruled in 2003 that minorities were inferior, 4/5ths a person. Guess you would call them “black inferiorist”

          38. justanagent says

            That was too convoluted to even follow much less respond to.

          39. Tim says

            just as I thought, pubic skol, yankee trash

          40. SoftballUmpire says

            I don’t know where you got that year of the SCOTUS ruling you assert to be 2003, as I am perplexed the 4/5 of a person. I had always thought it was 3/5 determined in the Constitutional Convention of 1787 as a compromise to balance the value of slaves as citizens as population determinants in establishing number of representatives. As a compromise, it was agreed to by both parties and abolished sometime after the Civil war; probably related to the census of 1870.

          41. richard king says

            Inciting to riot and assault on other’s freedom of speech and assembly are crimes, as practiced by antifas at Berkely on a regular basis.

          42. justanagent says

            On that we are in total agreement and the individuals who commit those crimes should be arrested and brought to justice. That said, it is not a crime to simply claim membership or be affiliated with groups like Antifa, BLM or the KKK. No crime is committed until there is an overt unlawful act or in some cases a conspiracy to commit such acts. I feel the frustration of my fellow law enforcement officers whose every instinct is to do whatever is necessary to protect the rights and property of citizens by arresting the lawbreakers on the spot but are constrained by administrators and politicians who prefer to give them “space”. Let us not forget that We the People elect the politicians who appoint the administrators. So in that sense we get what we ask for and we can change it.

          43. richard king says

            I agree with this statement. The only caveat I would add is that although we the people elect politicians, including district attorneys, attorneys general and judges, as well as certain officials and legislators, in some states there is voter fraud to the point where the vote of a pro law and order citizen hardly counts. It is up to us as voters, not the police, to clean up that swamp, but it isn’t easy. These days, we don’t just have corrupt politicians on the state level, we have irrational ones with an agenda.

        4. Murphmeister says

          Specify the crime. Hate and bigotry aren’t crimes, just a sad way to go about life.

        6. eric says

          The KKK did get tried in Alabama and they lost all their property and money Several good old white boys went to prison for hanging a young black boy . His mother has showed up at their parole hearings saying she has forgiven the drunk white boys , and has pleaded for the state let them go . The good old boys cried when the seen her .. I don’t think those boys are very dangerous any more .

          1. Mathew Molk says

            Screw the convicts, Let them rot in jail, but God bless the mother. She is truly a good Christian person. I’d be very proud to call her friend.

    3. pmbalele says

      I told you it’s now free money for racists. Sessions has now given millions to racist media faking they were hurt my last administration. Now racists owe Sessions campaign money in 2020. Trump should be careful with Sessions. Sessions is sneaky. Sessions is now campaigning for the 2020 WH GOP nomination. He is going from state to state faking he is doing his job as AG instead of staying in DC to manage DOJ. Behind the scene Sessions is already campaigning. He was in my state just a few weeks ago and went to only White neighborhood counties and said he will be in charge of the Country for Trump for cannot fire him-claimed he elected Trump for the job. Now Sessions and Mueller are teaming up to put Trump relatives in prisons. Once these are in jail, Sessions/Mueller team will work to put Trump behind bars. I am wondering why Trump does not want to fire Sessions before it’s too late-afraid of him! Sessions is just a little tweed bird to be fired.

          1. MAHB001 says

            He is here to divide conservatives. That has always been his goal.

          2. Mathew Molk says

            Jeff the inert needs to go. The first day he should have taken truck loads of damning evidence left at the DOJ by commie Comey and had the hillrat arrested. No bond, Flight risk, you know. That would have given him time to build a super air tight case against her. But just check his record. Never won a major case in his worthless swamp rat life. Again, Check his record if you don’t believe me.

          no one died at the Watergate burglary.

          1. evangelinebrabant says

            Nixon did not participate in the Watergate Burglary, there was no evidence he even knew about it – and why would he? He lied to protect his people.

            Had Nixon been a Democrat, no one would have ever heard of Watergate.

            The Democrats break into Republican headquarters about every election, and send Republicans to the hospital.

            My Left wing law professor told me, before Watergate, that the Democrats were going to do everything they could to find out something bad about Nixon.

            Reason? Among other successes he had, such as establishing the EPA, Nixon established detente with Communist China and the Soviet Union – something the Left- so much closer to to Communist ideology- had never been able to do.

            Not only that, Nixon actually visited China! The nerve of him!

            He brought the troops home from Vietnam. He and Kissinger had drawn up long range projections about the Middle East, the role of the U.S. and how to move forward. Etc.

            So, they began their plan to find something, anything.

            When you hear people say stupid comments such as “Obama is almost as bad as Nixon,” this tells you the speaker is completely ignorant.

            Nixon lied to protect his people, and although he was somewhat dark, he was probably the best qualified person ever to serve in the White House.

            He never committed treason. He never hated his country. He never worked to deliberately destroy America.

    7. Richard Start says

      There is a natural reluctance to preserve retirement benefits but in this case I’m afraid a culture of corruption within the Civil Service branch of government was nurtured under the Obama administration that may still be in existence only now we call it the shadow government which is causing our President so much trouble. Some may be Unions doing their job, protecting employees That can to too far when they are protecting the criminally guilty. If we don’t have accountability with these agencies our future will be one where they continue to abuse power! If a good balance can’t be found then we may need to be unfair to our government employee’s in order to protect the citizen’s of this country! It is them who must decide.

      1. Retired says

        If you remember under Obama Gov. employees got bigger raises than retirees . It’s called supporting your voters , same thing goes on in larger communities with School boards in democrat controlled areas .

        1. Richard Start says

          I knew I would explain that poorly. It isn’t that I support letting any of them off but I can understand the system that let’s them skate when it is the wrong thing to do. Just look at how many parents can’t discipline their children in today’s world so instead they continue to grow up behaving more horribly until they hate school because they spend most of their time in detention only to move on to interacting with police with all that comes with that fun just because a parent could not bring themselves to hurt a child’s feelings or back sides when they were little. Like wise because no one is willing to damage a career more dammed soul’s in and out of these government agencies will be hurt by abusive power hungry desk jockey’s more interested in pushing a political agenda then doing their jobs. I do expect the working stiff to get the better raise then us retired guys and just as long as we keep up with cost of living that is not too bad. If that is neglected for five or ten years we could be in trouble! So I do pray they, whoever your’s and my are keep that in mind.

          1. Retired says

            There was nothing wrong with what you said . You hit on a big problem that was created many years ago as far as how parents today are limited to discipline their children . There was nothing wrong with a good rump tapping over the knee . I don’t know if you paid attention years back when the Gov. took $100.00 off of your SS and a few years back they changed the way that Cost of living formula was changed so you would get less .SS is not bad if both are alive but once one dies it is rough . I see these older folks that look at groceries and put them back on the shelf because they can not afford it . It is pretty sad they cant buy meat or other things . I go Grocery shopping and have seen the increases . When Texas got hit Bleach hit $5.00 and coffee has gone up $3.00 with less in the can by 4 oz . Detergent is another one . We are at the 10 year mark .

          2. Mathew Molk says

            Hating school is more a function of teachers that cannot teach.

            “It’s the parents, It’s the parents”. – when they cannot do the job they are paid to do. There are teachers that CAN handle the job they are paid for but they are frowned upon by their NWO Marxist union brothers and sisters.

          3. Richard Start says

            First I’m sorry it took so long to get back to you but I find I’m often cut off from commenting by problems with my computer from all the pop up virus tricks snuck into some of these sites. That is just a guess as to where I picked them up since I don’t go to many other sites.
            Back to children not liking school. you do have a valid point but the one I was making was a much deeper one I noticed while working at one. The students who had the most problems and hated school the most all had the same moto! “you’re not the boss of me!” They each had difficulty taking dirrections from teachers or any other school employee’s so were constantly in trouble. How do you find pleasure in being part something that finds nothing right with you?
            The part we need to remember is we are talking about children and how they think. Wanting them to understand how we think would be great and easier if we start at a young age. The older and more out of control the situation becomes the harder it is to correct. The Ivory Towers of education are trapped by their own certainty of the idea they can’t be wrong it will be the equivalent of a civil war in academia before anything changes.

    8. deertick says

      AMEN!!
      There are consequences for behavior. Good behavior receives fevorable consequences and bad behavior damn sure should receive bad consequences. As long as these people are not punished to the extent of the law, thier bad behavior will continue. Lock them up!! Show no favoritism..

    9. Elizabeth Lewis says

      No one is in jail because they actually found conservatives weren’t targeted! What they did find is that they did look for suspicious words that include liberal words as well and furthermore had

      Right you are there should be more to all this then money and an apology there should be heads rolling all the way up I am hoping there is more to come and that this might be small in comparison.

    I don’t understand at all the right-wing outrage on this one. None of them were denied their non-profit status, although any organization with the words “Patriot” &, especially, “Tea Party” in their name does jump at you as being political, so conservatives should be ecstatic that they managed to fraudulently slip some political organizations as “non-profit”.

    1. Tired... says

      It’s about equal treatment under the law. According to the IG, the Cincinnati office flagged those groups who had specific key words in their titles to go to DC for further review. They chose to flag 100% of conservative groups and only 30% of progressive groups. In addition, the progressive groups were held to a different standard which resulted in additional delays for the conservative groups. When the fact that the Lerner’s computer crashed and was subsequently destroyed is added to the fact that the IRS was strangely unable to obtain copies of her emails from the recipients (the Cincinnati office would have been a good place to start) and she took the fifth multiple times when she testified before the House Committee, there is a great deal that should concern honest individuals of any political persuasion.

    St. Louis, Long a Coal Capital, Votes to Get All of Its Power From Clean Sources.
    St. Louis became the 47th American city to set a goal of getting all of its electricity from clean, noncarbon sources with a vote by local lawmakers Friday — a significant watershed given its long-standing ties to the fossil fuel industry.

      The only way to clean the air in St. Louis is to remove most of the trash living there and replace the political leaders just like Baltimore – Chicago and Atlanta to name a few .

      1. gotabgood says

        The “trash” living there………………………. are human beings.
        If you were to lose your income right now!! You would soon be living with that trash!!!!!
        So the only difference between you and them is a dollar. There are many reasons why the “trash” lives like they do. Which you know NOTHING about! Especially when it comes to different cities. There are vets living like “trash”…. disabled and again for many reasons you do not know.
        The meek shall inherit the earth…. they just might be your landlords in the future… be nice to them now, for you may need them later.

        1. Ronnie Cowlishaw says

          1. gotabgood says

            Is our military that protects us and you and your freedom of speech, free??
            Nothing is free, we all pay for it. If some poor person goes to ER, we pay double or more for his treatment than if we all got together and gave him insurance so he could make an appointment to see a doctor and save us money… but you brain-dead righties think you are giving something away… so you you fuss and complain and say NO SEND THEM TO ER SO WE CAN SPEND MORE FOR THEM!!

            I have heard that “boot strap story” sooooooo many times. I am not saying 100% of them are false…. I am saying only 2% are true.
            My facts are just as good as yours. Neither of us can prove the other is making stuff up.
            You ever drive through a poor section of any city? You get nervous, a little anxious, or maybe even scared if you see group hanging around a stop light and it is red in your direction? In a few moments you will be out of that neighborhood and feeling more relaxed. How would you like to live there? Do you think they want to live there? Where they or family members are in danger each and every day? Do you think because their skin is darker than yours or their clothes a little ragged that they call where they live, “home sweet home”?

          2. Retired says

            What we have is when they get out of School they walk down the street [ even though there are sidewalks ] and jump out in front of cars daring you to hit them . Then there is the Drive by shootings and gang fights with many people surrounding them . It is amazing how fast they disappear once the flashing light approach ,

          3. gotabgood says

            You are proving my point… want to live there?
            You ever been in a situation where you felt safer walking in the street than down the sidewalk? Close quarters, cars on one side, buildings on the on the other..

          4. Retired says

            Sound like Chicago – East Baltimore and NYC .

          If that ain’t the truth and hard to beat that Bumper sticker .

      What a blind Liberal fool you are!

    3. Joseph Carrilho says

      You, an idiot or a troll, are going to keep us up to date? In your dreams, moron.

      1. gotabgood says

        Yes.. I will… and you can stick your moron in what you talk out of..

    4. safari1024 says

      You forgot to mention in your news brief that California failed in it’s attempt to pass similar legislation. And what does that have to do with the Obama administration abusing their power to marginalize political dissent before his re-election, anyway?

      1. gotabgood says

        As you will notice in my news brief, I gave a reference, what I got from you was an opinion.

        1. safari1024 says

          Said by the selfsame person who posted a video of “The Mask” as his opinion of Mueller’s investigation, and a drawing of a unicorn to express his OPINION of another poster. Nice try hypocrite.

          1. gotabgood says

            Reference is not an “opinion”..

          2. safari1024 says

            Your posts were most certainly referring to your opinion. Slippery does not usually mean liar, but in some cases…..

          3. gotabgood says

            Am I suppose to know what you are talking about?

          4. safari1024 says

            It was in reference to your earlier post, but obviously too abstract for you. Guess I have to be more concrete for you. I’ll keep that in mind.

      2. gotabgood says

        Again… you give me nothing but opinions…. yours!

        1. safari1024 says

          And you offer nothing but your extraneous, disconnected references.

          1. gotabgood says

            Which is 100% better than your zero references.
            At least I am trying…. you gave it all up when voting for Trump…. the devil now has your soul..

          2. safari1024 says

            And that isn’t opinion on your part? Like I told you yesterday, and it holds true today. NICE TRY HYPOCRITE.

          3. gotabgood says

            REFERENCE IS NOT A PERSONAL OPINION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          4. safari1024 says

            And telling me that the devil now has my soul is reference? You are totally full of shite, and a complete waste of time. Goodbye. I would rather talk with people that have integrity, which does not include you

          5. safari1024 says

            Oh, not only full of shite, but also an egomaniac with a compulsive need for the last word, no matter how nonsensical. And here I had falsely thought you might have had at least half a brain. My mistake, but I was correct about the hypocrite, and complete waste of time parts. I now see you are nothing but a pathetic little worm of a troll, trying to act like a grown up when you are actually psychologically stunted. Enjoy your lonely little life.

  8. MAHB001 says

    Lois Lerner needs to go to jail.

    1. Retired says

      She should have bin fired and benefits taken away with a 10 year sentence !!! Until that happens nothing will change !!

      1. MAHB001 says

        Agreed, we are no longer a country ruled by laws.

        1. Tired... says

          Now, now, some people are just more equal than others!

          1. Joseph Carrilho says

            The “some people” you mentioned are all fuukin’ insane.

          2. Mathew Molk says

            Hey Joe…Are they more insane then us when we vote them in again and again? – I try to avoid voting for lawyers wherever possible. .

          3. MAHB001 says

            Yea, I have a little trouble with conforming to that belief…..

            Lock her up!

            Great comment.

          4. Tired... says

            I do as well. The problem is that this is how people like Lois Lerner think and they don’t see anything wrong with it…they are the very monsters that they scream about. in the streets.

          5. MAHB001 says

            It seems the Left cries wolf to cover up the fact that they are wolves.

          6. Topher Smith says

            Examples?

          7. SNUFFER says

            BLB’S ARE THE LOWEST FORM OF LIFE WE HAVE EXPERIENCED IN THIS COUNTRY- ALONG WITH THEIR FRIENDS THE ANTIFA MOVEMENT.
            FOLKS OF THE RIGHT- BE LOCKED AND LOADED IN YOUR HOME AND IF YOU ARE OUT IN THE COMMUNITY. THESE FOOLS ARE PLANNING SOMETHING. JUST BE READY- TAKE YOUR SHARPIE OUT AND WRITE ON IT -TO ANTIFA WITH LOVE!! THEN POP THE SOB IF HE TRIES ANYTHING TOWARD YOUR HOME, OR YOUR FAMILY’S SAFETY. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROTECT YOUR LIFE AND HOME AND FAMILY BEFORE ALL ELSE.
            I HAVE 2 FRIENDS – MILITARY SNIPERS THAT ARE LOCKED AND LOADED – READY FOR THE FIRST SOB TO VENTURE ON THEIR PROPERTY. ITS LIKE RIDING A BICYCLE- YOU NEVER NEVER FORGET WHAT YOUR INSTRUCTOR TOLD YOU WHILE IN YOUR FACE. “YOU ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON YOU KNOW. PROTECT THE HOME AND FAMILY AT ALL COSTS TO THEM!!! GOOD LUCK ON NOV. 4TH 2017. THE DAY I HOPE ANTIFA AND THE WONDERFUL BLM LOOSES A LOT OF MEMBERS AND THEY ARE LEFT LAYING IN THE STREET WITH NICE LITTLE HOLES IN THEIR HEADS. READY ON THE RIGHT – READY ON THE LEFT- THEN COMMENCE FIRING !! ALWAYS HAVE A GROUP THAT YOUR INSTRUCTOR WOULD BE PROUD OFF.

        2. godfrey buquet says

          I agree with you MAHB001 but, though we’re a country no longed ruled by laws, we are still a country ruled by lawyers. There is little difference, believe me. You will hardly ever see a lawyer with his/her hands in their own pockets. That’s because they always have their hands in someone else’s pockets.

          1. MAHB001 says

            You my friend have just described the new bourgeoisie of our current communist State. Lawyers now control the people, and the people ARE the means of production…..

            A hundred million upvotes for you! Well done.

            When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty…..

          2. pineapple says

            Lawyers in Congress enact laws that benefit lawyers at the expense of everyone else.

        3. SNUFFER says

          HIT THAT ONE RIGHT ON THE NAIL HEAD. UNTIL WE TAKE THEM ON HEAD ON IN A STREET FIGHT – THEY WILL CONTINUE TO DISRUPT AND CAUSE DAMAGE TO BOTH AND THIS COUNTRY’S INTEGRITY. AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED ALL THE BLM’S COULD BELLY UP IN THE STREETS- THEN THE DEAD DOG TRUCKS COULD COME WITH THEIR SHOVELS TAKE THEM TO THE LOCAL LANDFILL. THE ARE NO MORE THAN STRAY WILD DOGS LOOKING FOR A KILL NO MATTER WHAT THE PREY. THE LOWEST FORM OF HUMANITY!!

    2. Gary Smith says

      Along with Obama and Clinton

  9. Jake says

    I hope they don’t pay their fines with taxpayer money.

    1. Joseph Carrilho says

      When someone is busted and fined by govt., does the victim ever
      get any of the ‘fine money’ the govt. collects? I doubt it.

  10. Cynthia Webster says

    I see little justice here. The Obama Administration used the government to set conservative groups up and watched their sources of funding disappear and their sphere of effectiveness diminish; the Trump Administration, years later, settled the law suit with government funds. In both cases the voter/taxpayer paid the price, lawyers reaped the profits and there were no consequences for illegal and obstructive policies by Lois Lerner and those above her. To me a government pay off and apology by an administration who would not have committed the crimes of the Obama Administration in the first place is not equal to an admission of guilt nor punishment of offenses by those who perpetrated it. Everyone involved in the IRS collusion to suppress the conservative voice continues to belief they were justified in acting as they did and would do the same thing today if given the opportunity.

    1. Joseph Carrilho says

      The IRS, and all of the criminals involved, NEED to pay for the damage they’ve done.

  11. littlesmoke says

    Poor job Mr Sessions. This is the kind of behavior expected in a 3rd World country. Oops, is that what we are now?

  12. Joseph Carrilho says

    “….. putting behind us Obama’s use of the federal government as an instrument for *political warfare*.”

    terrorism |ˈterəˌrizəm|
    noun
    the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.

    This amounts to terrorism. So does the intimidating mainstream media’s bull shit.

  13. SouthernPatriot says

    So, the Trump Administration Justice Department apologizes and pays the TEA Parties and Conservative Groups for what the corrupt Obama Administration and Lois Lerner did to them? Why can’t AG Sessions reach back and charge Lerner et al for violating the law?

  14. Jim Thomasson says

    What does Obama have on Trump and Sessions? I was hoping that Trump and Sessions were not just like the rest of the corruption in DC.

  15. RCQ157@yahoo.com says

    And they should all be fired and prosecuted and sent to a regular penitentiary for a term of twenty five years to life, make life the minimum sentence they can get, these scum bags needs to go away never to be seen or heard from again.

  16. Sally Koller says

    What does the totally obvious traitor Obama going to prison ? He had an
    Illegal and lawless presidency and now is trying to overthrow our government because he hates America and Americans.. He is a communist left pig who deserves to be shot in the back for lying to the American people about everything so he could become a communist mole and do everything possible to destroy America and the free world ! He’s still doing it so LOCK HIM UP!

  17. Michael Dennewitz says

    People, PEOPLE!! It’s not hard to figure this whole damned thing out! Sure, a lot of you will think I’m crazy, possibly even think I’m a tad senile, but think, THINK ! To begin with, geo soros is behind EVERYTHING bad that has happened to this once mighty country. Secondly, thru his funding and connections, the cliton cartel makes every previous and present mafia look like kindergartners! Now, one opens his mouth, bingo, he/she just disappears! I mean, how many “suspicious” deaths does it take to open anyone’s eyes, eh? And thirdly, I don’t give a damn who’s “in charge,” the cliton cartel has sooo much “shit” on everyone else that NOTHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO THE BENGHAZI BITCH or anyone else!! THEY ALL COVER EACH OTHER’S ASSES!@ 😣🙂☹😢

  18. CALVIN says

    i think that is great that some tea party groups have received justice! my question is, when are that american people/taxpayers going to receive justice by having indictments and prosecutions?

  19. pudge1 says

    Stupid Sessions. This should be front and center of O corruption.

  20. donl says

    These are the type of people that make up the Democrat Party; Leftists, Commies, Socialists, Marxist….

  21. rick meek says

    Hmmmm – taxpayers get stuck with the bill – Lerner and K walk with a VERY NICE retirement and bank accounts…..——- DC is nothing but Lawyers – Judges and trash.

  22. Eric Pearson says

    It’s amazing that one blog could be so full of absolute crap.
    There never was and there isn’t now a scandal of any kind in the Obama Administration. President Obama is squeaky clean. He’s probably the cleanest, most scandal free President we’ve ever seen. The only other scandal free president I can think of is Jimmy Carter. Both presidents abound in high ethics and moral character. Trump on the other hand is the exact opposite.

    1. Stealth Fighter says

      Go away Russian Troll!!! Try HuffPost…They need your posts…..

    If in doubt about the fairness of American “press” watch over the next few days to see how well they cover this settlement. Remember it is your money they are using to settle their misdeeds. Doug

  25. AKLady says

    One woman, Lois Lerner, at one IRS district took this action upon herself.
    She was forced to retire. What she did was morally wrong, but not illegal.

    Oh, and by the way, t was not just “Tea Party” groups, ACORN groups were also targeted. Yes, ACORN is “liberal”.

    Now that Hillary Clinton is no longer a political threat, Republicans have ceased pretending they ever cared about Benghazi at all (there’s a trial going on right now in federal court of a man accused of orchestrating the attack; you probably haven’t heard about it).

    1. Stealth Fighter says

      You’re right. I haven’t heard about that. Hope that you keep us posted. Thanx.

  26. mojo says

    The persons responsible for this payoff should be held responsible and made to pay the damages. The TAXPAYERS are the ones always paying for the acts of the government employees that are supposed to be qualified and trained for their position.

    1. Retired says

      You mean qualified in kissing butt for the party and being brain washed .

  27. Richard Start says

    Watching the Senate Hearings on this was like seeing a Hollywood movie of small town politicians gone rouge except they were IRS Agents with Senator’s willing to help cover for them! These people had horrendous stories of the abuse of power holding up IRS letter head documents showing collusion with opposition political groups. Not to mention more then one example of donors being targeted by multiple government agencies stemming from the IRS noting they were heavy conservative donor’s to the point some areas had difficulty raising money for their candidate’s!!! I sat spell bound for days watching these hearings but in the news at night NOTHING!!!!! Here was the biggest strory I had ever heard and it was not being covered? No one cared???? Why don’t I watch NBC or CBS? They don’t care about the AMERICAN people enough to report on the biggest abuse of government power ever shown to the public and continue to ignore it because no one will care? Back stabber’s work in those companies, not journalist or reporter’s. they do not care about us, maybe not even their own welfare.

  28. Michael Dennewitz says

    If there’s so much shit against ovomit, why is the little halfbreed faggot still walking around?????

  29. Dasgeiss says

    Let’s see. Hillary commits treason selling muclear material to Russians. Hillary does money laundering with her Clinton Foundation. Hillary commits felonies with her emails. So we indict Paul Manafort for some contact with a Russian??? I think it will take a civil war to get this country back on track. We sure can’t trust this government to do it.

  30. Charles Girard says

    The only way i’ll believe any Democrat is punished is when the liberal press, on their front page says Hillary and or Obama gets 50 years for corruption.

  31. Kenneth Cole says

    People feel if you say it enough it will be true and if you pay enough people to repeat the same story everyone will believe you no matter how big the lie is

  32. Polly says

    I don’t see any justice here. We the tax payers foot for the settlement bills, not those criminals who committed this crime! Lois Lerner got her big fat retirement package and we paid both!

  33. Nina Ferguson says

    This last statement is so true and really ridiculous. “Not because it’s true but because the first black president was granted an press protection never before seen in political history”. Which TV anchor was it who said that when “President Obama spoke, a thrill ran down my leg”. I mean, get real and GROW UP. I want to know what is going to be done with Lois Lerner? Is she going to be punished for her ILLEGAL actions? Is Mr. Koskinen going to be punished for allowing a person like Ms. Lerner to stay in control of a section of the IRS that is breaking the law? I am so bloody sick of hearing how under Imam Obama had a “scandal free” presidency. What do they call the IRS problem, with the Fast & Furious problem, Benghazi, the Uranium fiasco, how many more does it have to be before it isn’t a problem. The MSM has kissed Omam Obama’s posterior so many times, that their lips have locked in place.

  34. ericsiverson says

    How can you say conservatives finally got Justice from the IRS . We suffered 4 more years of Obama and he brought in 100s thousands of more Muslim terrorists that have already even killed many of us . He raised the national debt so that we and our children will be living in a state of slavery for many years to come . And you have a lot of guts to say we finally received justice

  35. maxtor51 says

    if nothing is done to the participants in this scandal then it will continue in probably some other way but it will still happen. if no one is brought to bear for their actions with the law then the next ones will not hesitate cause nothing happened to the last ones that done it. you cant just say, don’t do it again, that don’t seem to sink in to their thick assed heads. you must punish then the next ones will hesitate before they stick their necks out and commit crimes against the people knowing if they get caught they will spend some gray bar hotel nights, months, years!! if you dont, it will continue to happen except the next will be worse or bigger and it will be hard to prosecute them due to not prosecuting the ones before them. they will have an ace in the hole when you try to impose the law on them. they done it and they turned their heads now i done it and you want to burn me…and it will work. guarantee it!!!

  36. maxtor51 says

    what i cant believe that officials of the government taking the 5th during congressionals. there should be a clause in their contract that they can not ever plead the 5th. you know they are guilty of something when they plead the 5th.

  37. Robalou01 says

    What crap. They didn’t get justice at all! The scumbag Lois Lerner and her boss, the truly disgusting African Queen, are out and about as free as the sky is blue. Where is the gumby worm Jeff Sessions?

  38. NickinATL says

    Why in the world is no one re-investigating Lois Lerner ?! This haughty, self-important Hillary-clone needs to be in prison orange—just like the Hildebeast herself !!!

  39. larry outlaw says

    Why is this ignorant first black president getting away with this? All the American people get is bs gossip about all this crooked chit and nothing is ever done about it. Its time to stop running their pieholes and do something about this chit.

  45. Oldmonkey says

    Lois Lerner and many more need serious jail time. This by itself, far worse than what Nixon did. These pigs didn’t even loos their pensions!

  49. Martin says

    Sessions must bring charges against the IRS and the Obama administration. The taxpayers again being screwed by paying those that were abused.

  50. RCQ157@yahoo.com says

    Isn’t it time to recall the liar Lois Lerner for her corrupt testimony about her answers regarding the IRS targeting tea party groups which did not aline with the lying democratic party.

  51. PWe72 says

    Now if someone would PLEASE investigate the unprecedented fraud involved in the “Pigford” farm settlements. There are hundreds of so-called farmers of color who participated in a legalized rip off of our tax dollars with the blessings of the obummer administration. The number of honest and justified settlements is a ridiculously small portion of the total.

  52. MaryEllen Franklin says

    I watched the hearings, it was disgusting to listen to Koskinen, Lois and the previous IRS head what scum bag lying pos jdagata usmc And they are free, nice. real nice and collecting retirement pay from our tax dollars when they should be cracking rocks

  53. Martha Lee Vincent says

    WHO PAID THE SETTLEMENT???? WAS IT WITH TAXPAYER MONEY, OR DID THE CRIMINALS THEMSELVES ACTUALLY HAVE TO PAY THE MONEY ??? THIS IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE IF THE CRIMINALS DON’T HAVE TO PAY THE MONEY PERSONALLY, THEY WEREN’T PUNISHED !!!

  54. Tiger says

    Nobody got justice, the event happened and forced so many groups to go quiet during election time. Nobody has been punished and money doesn’t make-up for this injustice done to American citizens.

  55. A_Nobody says

    So why aren’t the perpetrators being handed their heads for their illegal activities, Sessions??? Same goes for the others you’ve ignored. If you can’t do a proper job get the hell out.

  56. ernldo says

    What justice? The leftist pigs got a fine, that’ll be paid by the taxpayer again. I would rather start dragging the scum out and lynching the trash!

  57. richard king says

    This is all very nice, and the victims deserve the settlement. The case was won by Judicial Watch, arguably the last honest public lawyers in America.
    caveat: was this taxpayer money? I suspect so, and suggest the settlement monies be extracted from the Commissioner of the IRS, Lois Lerner, and other IRS miscreants found to have been involved.
    If the finding is, as seems obvious, that these officials broke the law, proceedings to force restitution should not be a bridge too far.

  58. The duck says

    The money the victims are receiving is innocent taxpayer dollars. I object to that happening. There is no accountability if the criminal does not pay. The taxpayer is not the criminal my Gawd congress has its head in the sand. Of course if you are a Senator or Congressman and break the law the most that happens is that congress shakes their finger at you. So we need to get busy and scream our heads off at the injustice done us as law abiding citizens for tighter ethics that apply to every law breaker, appointed or voted into office or just plain street type criminal.

  59. Jeff says

    I’m afraid the day anyone from that former so called Administration goes to jail, pigs will fly, literally…. as bad as I want them to go to jail, and believe you me I would love nothing more than to see Hilliary, or Oduesch, lying ass Lynch, treasonous Comey, and the list just keeps going, but I’m afraid it will never happen, I will keep saying my prayers at night, in hopes the one sitting on high will answer them, but either way these folks will answer for there treachery, whether they answer to man, or the almighty remains to be seen,but there time is coming, no doubt about it.

  60. Alleged-Comment says

    That Negro, I tell ya…… good for nothing!

  61. littlesmoke says

    Settlement my ass! The taxpayers paid the bill, and who in hell ever took an apology from an attorney? The Public, and our way of life, i.e., the Constitution, took it in the shorts with this one, again. The piece of shit at the top of this should be rooming with Bubba’s wife, and her henchmen in similar circumstances. We need some Dems/Libs/Commies in the Jailhouse, NOW!

  62. dobber 1029 says

    this crew is the biggest sham in the “history” of the US Gov’t to DATE…and the minions still believe they did nothing wrong with this, Benghazi, Fast and Furious , the dnc crap etc. if anyone else did this they would be in prison instantly. what ever happened to the guy that produced that “awful” video that ob, clinton and rice stuffed down the worlds throat? has he been heard from since Benghazi? just curious….

  63. Jim Singleton says

    Let’s be on with this. Hillary, Bill, Obama, Rice, etc etc etc….settlements sound like a small step in the right direction. Let’s see some JUSTICE. Hillary and Bill should be in Prison. Obama should be also but that’ll never happen. I’d like to see something towards Justice happen. I’ve really given up on seeing it. The DEEP STATE is just too deep and for too long.

  64. Charles Girard says

    If we’re a country of laws like we claim then don’t miss one of these corrupt Democrats from Lois Lerner to Obama (none of them) should walk free, prosecute them all no matter how long it takes and restore my faith in this beautiful country.
