Best Video EVER - IRS Commissioner Squirms

OMG this was just priceless to see Rep. Jim Jordan from Ohio NAILS that IRS thug. Watch as he starts to sweat and squirm and change his answers.

I learned a bunch of new stuff, like the IRS has a "google alert" and they received letters from 132 Congress members about this issue and 42 major news stories and the idiot wants us to believe he didn't tell anyone at the White House about it.

It's that dear in the headlights look.

Now is the time to go for the jugular, because any vindictive retribution from the IRS will be closely scrutinized and made public going forward.

yup

this guy is pretty good during hearings,,,, I've seen him grille many and trip em up or expose the hypocrisy going on

and doesn't do it to be partisan,,,, like graham or others that make hearings left vs right

dems vs repubs where one vilifies and one protects the witnesses

auto bailouts were the worst,,, so was the big bailouts....made me sick

At around the 2:28 mark

The guy is reading the IRS guy's comment. He starts by essentially saying "I appreciate the question". That's the hallmark "spin" move. Like "we couldn't wait to address this!"

Milton Friedman was jewish. Peter Schiff is jewish. Irving Schiff is Jewish.. are they part of it too? People have to understand that a lot of Jewish people don;'t agree, and there is a big difference between liberal and conservative jews..

Let me take a wild guess and suggest that the link in your post goes to a thread that you originated?

Of course.

As per your signature.

It's time to wake up and smell the coffee.

For the folks who voted me down..when will you EVER learn. That video wasn't even the best acting that I've seen.

Whenever someone is talking down to us, why do they always have to use the word "folks"?

Robert

I do not like to call anybody out without knowing the facts.

But since you used 'us', I will take that as 'you', at least for one, lol

No worries Robert, my intent was not hostile, and if it was perceived as such, please accept my apology :-)

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

He just got caught in a lie

Notice at the end of the video he says "Not to my memory and it wouldn't be appropriate, so I certainty believe I did not have conversations (with the White House)."

He let it slip. If he did not know this was going on, then why would he use the phrase not to my memory?

Excellent point.

Too bad he wasn't called on it.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

Yeah he's lucky more of daily paul types aren't in congress...

The bottom line to all the IRS scandals is this....

We need to change the way we collect taxes, period.

I don't care if it's the Fair Tax or through tariffs or both. Our current system of collecting taxes runs against the grain of the spirit of our constitution whether the Supreme Court agrees with it or not.

It is invasive to the core. It gives too much power to government. It destroys American's lives and their hope of chasing the American dream.

NOW is the time to push our leaders to change our tax collection process.

None of this would have occurred if we collected taxes through The Fair Tax.

Vast and Furious

What the IRS did was a criminal act. They deliberately targeted conservative Americans and audited them just because of their political beliefs.

According to Ben Swan, over 300 groups were targeted in Cincinnati alone. Vast and Furious...this operation was BIG, and it targeted conservative journalists as well. Many conservative Americans who so happened to disagree, or question the Obama administration got audited.

The size and scope of this scandal is going to become something for the history books...

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Statistics

There are roughly 250 government workdays in a year, this means we are looking at a span of approx. 500 days.
According to this, the IRS received a letter from Congress every 3.8 days, there was a major new story every 12 days, and this "criminal" visited the White House at least once a week, every 4.24 days.
Question from Rep. Jordan should be "Who the hell do you think you are fooling?"
I wish Rep. Jordan had thrown a book at this guy or something.
Now, What is the government going to do when one of it's tenacles get caught in the cookie jar?

AND he visited the White

AND he visited the White House 118 times.... No way he didn't talk about this.... This implements Obozo directly...

I hate to say this, but being objective here and I know we want to catch these people... But I can't honestly say to myself that that Jim Jordan ( (The Interviewer)doesn't look devious. Especially at the very end. Am I trippin or what?

Good grilling by a republican. I hope the democrats stay out of it and don't ask any hard questions. Let the R's get all the points for asking the hard questions.

Here's a hard question;

What are the names of the IRS employees who authored the extensive questionnaires for conservative groups to answer, and with the claimed lack of personnel in the Cincinnati office, how is it that IRS employees had so much time to author those documents and check the answers?

They need to threaten some of them with serious prison time and see who wants to talk.

That's a shady dude.

If I were ever taken before Congress, I'd plead the 5th. I'd go full Mark McGwire on them. If they got the info on you, let them dig it up and file charges. It's so many ways they can trip you up while you're testifying. Then, you get the Martha Stewart treatment.
