Ben Swann Reality Check: IRS and AP - Obama Administration Under Fire

Ben Swann Reality Check | To call it a rough week for the Obama Administration might be an understatement. As we've reported, last week a huge scandal broke when the IRS admitted to unfairly targeting Tea Party and Liberty groups seeking non-profit status. On the heels of that, a new scandal has emerged regarding the secret collection of journalists' phone records.

Ben broke this first, he deserves major kudos!

The part that Swann played in bringing this story to light deserves a special place in the Archives of First Amendment Triumphs!

The fact that he brought this to air first, along with the names and dates attached to government denials, and the media non-responses at that time, "over a year ago"; set the record and started the fuse of this media bomb burning back then. It's at 1:05 in this video that Ben links that with, "the Office of Inspector General reports that,'Senior IRS officials knew agents were targeting conservative groups as early as 2011.'"!

How many levels of authority are there between The Inspector General's office there in DC, and the Oval Office? How did this report get overlooked for two years by the man who promised, "the most transparent administration in history"?

Just a speculative question; how likely might this have happened under a Ron Paul administration, if among his first priorities was the dismantlement of this abusive bureaucracy? I won't bother to ask if something like this might have happened under Romney.

Enough already!

the pres is out there as the one ordering all these whistle-blower persecutions. I wish he'd just go shoot some hoops and kiss some babies, the country would be a lot better off. More persecutions than all other presidents combined.. it's hurting liberty and muddying the lens of government transparency. I wish he had the courage to just cool it.

This is not the only scandal brewing, either..Obama's nominee...

for Secretary of Labor, Thomas Perez is about as corrupt as they come.

He attempted to 'demonize' pro-life people using false charges,

he tried to force the hiring and advancement of unqualified candidates to the FDNY, then after the courts ruled against him, he tried the same tactics in other jurisdictions.

He also filed a brief with the Supreme Court claiming the government could regulate the hiring practices of Christian Schools, which the Supreme Court ruled against.

When the new Black Panthers were attempting to intimidate voters, he claimed the intimidation laws did not protect white people.

(I was remiss in not mentioning that the information here was obtained from the Liberty Counsel)

Under fire he says?

Well, guess what, reinforcements will be standing down sir. How's that feel now?

By claiming there is no conspiracy, you prove to those who believe in the conspiracy that you are part of the conspiracy.

Rat kings are phenomena said to arise when a number of rats become intertwined at their tails, which become stuck together with blood, dirt, ice, excrement or simply knotted. The animals reputedly grow together while joined at the tails. The numbers of rats that are joined together can vary, but naturally rat kings formed from a larger number of rats are rarer. The phenomenon is particularly associated with Germany, where the majority of instances have been reported. Historically, there are various superstitions surrounding rat kings, and they were often seen as a bad omen, particularly associated with plagues.WIKI

Nice!

When dominoes are setup to fall, they should.

All it takes is to push the first one over, and the rest go down in no time.

Chain Reaction or...

Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down?

The least heard news in this Domino Effect is about the families of the Navy Seals.
