Barack Obama continues to smash records set by the Nixon Administration for deceiving the public. Fortunately for our current commander-in-chief, the Democratic Party book of political world records persistently ignores his falsehoods and focuses instead on his alleged achievements… which continue to fool an astounding 40% of the voting public.
This Obama quote was given to Bill O’Reilly of Fox News in a live television interview last Sunday. O’Reilly asked him about the investigation regarding the IRS’ thwarting of tax-exempt status to organizations which oppose him. The President replied that there may have been “some bonehead decisions,” but that there wasn’t a “smidgen of corruption” within the IRS.
The response sounded as though this scandal has been blown out of proportion and it ought to be ignored.
If this is a closed issue, why did Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC 4th district) remind those in today’s Congressional hearing that only three of the groups represented by Jay Sekulow in this case have been asked to appear before Congress, but that none have been called on to speak yet? Rather, as former New York Republican Senator Alfonse D’Amato said on Fox News, the media is dropping the issue and the Administration is waiting for it to go away.
Oh, and by the way, this morning at the hearing Mr. Sekulow revealed that former Director of the IRS Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner had sent an email to several legal counsels within the IRS saying that her division would have to work “off plan” to reduce the granting of tax-exempt statuses.
No wonder Sekulow said that had he been her counsel that he, too, would have advised her to plea the 5th Amendment regarding her involvement in this case.
Better hurry, fellow citizens, use the 5th while you can. The president is working on neutralizing the first two Amendments and it shouldn’t be long before he gets to the 5th.1
1 – As a refresher, here is the 5th Amendment: “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself (emphasis added), nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” From www.law.cornell.edu
