The Obama administration routinely engages in the left-wing equivalent of Taqiyya - which is defined as lying to non-Muslims to advance the cause of Islam and defeat unbelievers. You can see a perfect example of this in the interview Sean Hannity did, Wednesday night, with London Imam Anjem Choudary.
Likewise, it is permissible for an Alinsky-trained radical to lie to non-Marxists (and lofo default libs) to advance the cause of Socialism and defeat the non-believers. As Obama in particular has demonstrated time and time again – they have no compunction about deceiving fellow Americans if it will help them push forward their toxic agenda. The light of truth on their actual agenda is like garlic to a vampire, to be avoided at all costs.
The Regime is now embroiled in too many scandals to keep up with – and they like it that way. They’re overwhelming the enemy (you and me) with shock and awe. The latest full frontal assaults: threatening to bypass Congress on immigration and impose unilateral amnesty, threatening to bypass Congress by signing a UN climate change treaty.
The IRS scandal is bubbling to the surface again as new revelations come to light, but the Regime knows that if they stall and stonewall long enough – the MSM will allow them to run out the clock as they have again and again.
Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice, Jay Sekulow says that the one thing we can count on as we learn more about the IRS scandal is “the Obama administration’s dedication to misleading the American people and Congress.”
Via Fox News:
After being told repeatedly by a number of administration officials — including the IRS Commissioner — that former top IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer problems resulted in the destruction of thousands of her key emails, we have now been told that those emails actually exist – backed up by an emergency system in the event of a catastrophe.
Justice Department officials have now told a federal court that the problem was not that the Lerner emails couldn’t be found, but that the back-up system was “too onerous to search.”
“Too onerous to search”? Unbelievable. The truth is that the Obama administration is doing everything it can — including presenting false and misleading information — to stall what can only be described as a faux investigation.
At the same time, we are now learning from the filing in federal court that Lerner’s Blackberry was wiped clean — destroyed — after her computer hard drives “crashed” and after Congress began its probe into the targeting scheme.
Sekulow notes that this has become “standard operating procedure for the Obama administration. Delay. Derail. Deceive.”
Meanwhile, the Oversight and Reform Committee has discovered another example of an outrageous conflict of interest.
New documents obtained by House Oversight and Government Reform Committee reveal a current Justice Department attorney defending the IRS actually worked at the IRS and was involved in the IRS’s illegal scheme to target conservatives. And, as it turns out, he also worked in the White House Counsel’s office.
This disturbing finding, posted here, is outlined below:
The Committee has learned that Andrew Strelka, currently an attorney at the Justice Department’s Tax Division, worked from 2008 to 2010 at the IRS in the Exempt Organizations (EO) Division, formerly headed by Lois Lerner. Emails show that Strelka was directly involved in the IRS targeting of conservative tax-exempt applicants. In March 2010, Strelka received an e-mail from IRS manager Ronald Shoemaker directing him to “[b]e on the lookout for a tea party case.” Shoemaker directed Strelka: “If you have received or do receive a case in the future involving an exemption for an organization having to do with tea party let me know.”
Strelka also received an email in June 2011 about the crash of Lois Lerner’s hard drive. Until recently, Strelka represented the IRS in civil litigation relating to the IRS targeting.
Sekulow appeared on Fox Business with Lou Dobbs to discuss the latest revelations. Sekulow said we’re talking about “a classic case of obstruction of justice.”
