Judicial Watch Lawsuit Forces Release of DOJ Emails Showing IRS’s Lois Lerner Met with DOJ Officials Just Before 2010 Elections DECEMBER 09, 2014
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released internal Department of Justice (DOJ) documents revealing that former IRS official Lois Lerner had been in contact with DOJ officials about the possible criminal prosecution of tax-exempt entities two full years before what the IRS conceded was its “absolutely inappropriate” 2012 targeting of the organizations. According to the newly obtained documents, Lerner met with top Obama DOJ Election Crimes Branch officials as early as October 2010.
“These new documents dramatically show how the Justice Department is up to its neck in the IRS scandal and can’t be trusted to investigate crimes associated with the IRS abuses that targeted Obama’s critics. And it is of particular concern that the DOJ’s Public Integrity Section, which would ordinarily investigate the IRS abuses, is now implicated in the IRS crimes. No wonder the Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done no serious investigation of the Obama IRS scandal,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It is shameful how Establishment Washington has let slide by Obama’s abuse of the IRS and the Justice Department. Only as a result of Judicial Watch’s independent investigations did the American people learn about the IRS-DOJ prosecution discussions of Obama’s political enemies and how the IRS sent, in violation of law, confidential taxpayer information to the FBI and DOJ in 2010. Richard Nixon was impeached for less.”
...Another explanation of the White House connection to all of this is HERE. It’s important to understand that the "Targeting Lists" the IRS and WH called a “secret project” were the end result.
From those targeting lists, the weaponized governmental agencies were directed to inundate the individuals and groups.
Additionally, to assist you in understanding the scope of the cover-up, here is a general leadership chart below of the IRS tax exempt entities involved. The leadership flow chart has been enhanced with names of parties involved.
ALL of the positions with NAMES CIRCLED have reportedly lost emails (mysterious computer crashes) showing their internal and external communications about the 501(c)(4) program review which built the “secret project”, which created the “target lists”.

Snipped from an e-mail from Allen West earlier today:
Over this past weekend, run-off elections in Louisiana resulted in two more wins for the Republican Party and brought our Guardian Fund 'victory list' to 21 new veterans and minority candidates taking office in January.
Congressman Bill Cassidy carried 56% of the vote defeating Senator Mary Landrieu for the United States Senate, making his the ninth seat turned Republican in the Senate. This solid victory shows the power of the conservative message in the South. In an even larger landslide victory, veteran and doctor, Ralph Abraham won Louisiana's 5th Congressional District with 64% of the vote to his Democrat opponent's 35%.
These run-off elections in Louisiana only further confirm that November 4th was not an anomaly, an accident, luck, or any variation thereof. The Republican Party's takeover of Congress was a clear and deliberate choice made by the American people to put conservatives in charge. [emphasis mine, and I agree with Mr. West 100% - FB]
Dr. Ralph Abraham (LA-5)
Dr. Ralph Abraham, Louisiana's 5th Congressional District, has spent his life serving his country both in, and out of uniform. Dr. Abraham served as a 1st Lieutenant, Co C 2/20th Special Forces from April 1986 - June 1989. He continues to be involved with the military by serving as a Mission Pilot with the Civil Air Patrol and an Aircraft Commander with the U.S. Coast Guard.

Rep. Bill Cassidy LA-Senate
Congressman Bill Cassidy (LA-6) is a proven leader in Louisiana. First elected in 2009, Rep. Cassidy serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and acts as the assistant Whip for the House Republican Conference.

STILL TO BE DECIDED:
Martha McSally (AZ-2)
RECOUNT UPDATE: It has been reported that Martha McSally will be the Congresswoman-elect in Arizona's 2nd Congressional District even after the 133-ballot-recount results come in later this month. Arizona's Secretary of State, Ken Bennett, who opposed Barber's recount efforts said, 'I expect the totals could change a little bit, but I don't think it will change the outcome.' The last two counties in AZ-2 will report their recount results to an Arizona judge around December 16th or 17th, with an official winner announced shortly after!

Obama Justice Department Was Involved In IRS Targeting, Lerner Emails Reveal Robert W. Wood, Dec 10, 2014
Sadly, the 18 month investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative groups isn’t over, and it may be worse than anyone thought. A federal judge has broken loose more emails that the DOJ had surely hoped would never surface. The picture it reveals isn’t pretty. The documents prove that Lois Lerner met with DOJ’s Election Crimes Division a month before the 2010 elections.
It has to be embarrassing to the DOJ, which may not be the most impartial one to be investigating the IRS. In fact, the DOJ withheld over 800 pages of Lerner documents citing “taxpayer privacy” and “deliberative privilege.” Yet these internal DOJ documents show Ms. Lerner was talking to DOJ officials about prosecuting tax-exempt entities (yes, criminally!) two years before the IRS conceded there was inappropriate targeting.
[The] DOJ’s Mr. Pilger admitted that DOJ officials met Ms. Lerner in October 2010. Moreover, according to congressional investigators, a Lerner email from October 5, 2010 shows the IRS sent the FBI and DOJ a “1.1 million page database of information from 501(c)(4) tax exempt organizations” that contained confidential taxpayer information. [emphasis mine - FB]
In her May 2013 answer to a planted question about the alleged targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups, Ms. Lerner suggested that the alleged targeting occurred due to an “uptick” in 501 (c)(4) applications to the IRS. In reality, there was a decrease, and as for targeting (what targeting?), well, you know the rest.
Remember those rogue IRS employees in Cincinnati? They were confused.
[T]he 18 month investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative groups isn’t over, and it may be worse than anyone thought.
This is the biggest scandal of 0bama's pResidency, and us folks paying attention have known EXACTLY how bad this is all along. This is the weaponization of the IRS, at the behest of the DOJ and FBI, at the behest of ???. Geez, I wonder who.
We either live in a Constitutional Republic, or we don't. It's hard to say we do when the Federal Government sics the Federal Government on people just because they don't agree with the values of the people running the Federal Government.
This scandal makes Watergate seem like kindergarten.
Nice to see a prominent, respected "mainstream" news source shining some light on this tyranny.
Jonathon Gruber is testifying about the lies and duplicity of Obamacare before Congress right now. Here is how the information is being disseminated.
Fox News: Airing the Hearing. Fox Business News: Airing the Hearing. CNN: Yacking about the UVA rape case followed by Mark Lamont Hill demanding control of the police with "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" lies of Ferguson. MSNBC: Banning horse carriages in New York City.

The UVA Scandal – It Was All Made Up Ideological Nonsense Sold By A Like-Minded Reporter With An Ideological Agenda Posted on December 11, 2014 by sundance
We have withheld a discussion thread on the entire Rolling Stone / UVA Rape Scandal [however, w]hen you see the far left media trying to sulk their way to the exits you know the point has been reached where it’s safe time to call the baby ugly.
The entire controversy was constructed around a seriously unstable, attention desperate, false victim. Her Tawana Brawley-like story was then collected by, solicited by, promoted by and sold by, a rabid similarly minded fem-leftist working at Rolling Stone; Sabrina Erdely playing the role of Al Sharpton.
How in the hell did he and Boehner become the leaders of their party? The Republican version of Reid/Pelosi.
That's PRECISELY why they're the "leaders" of the Republican party - they're RINOs. It'd be more accurate to call them slightly-conservative Democrats.
Right now it's the best we've got, and come January we control Congress again. With these two "in charge" I'm not holding my breath, but the country has spoken loudly, again, that they're on to the crap that's going on in Washington. With an R-controlled Congress, perhaps we can begin righting the ship. I hope it's not too late.
The "Amnesty" that Obama "made new law" is a classic example of corruption and racism.
The "excuse" or rationalization for Obama's announcement, that he will not deport criminals illegally in this nation, if he doesn't want to, is prosecutorial discretion.
In simple, local terms, this is the rationalization used by your county D.A. to not enforce jaywalking, because he wants to free up resources for muggings.
Now, technically, Obama indeed has the power to tell Holder not to enforce a law he finds questionable, as he has done with DOMA his entire regime. Agree with DOMA or not, Barry does not enforce it. Unfortunately, that does not make DOMA not be the law.
And if Barry decided we were not going to deport people here illegally, maybe, somehow, that IS within his power. Perhaps. ( there may be some penumbra and emanation I don't see )
However. If Barry only does not deport people he has been bribed to not deport, then it's pure dictator stuff, and not legal, since the law must be applied to all equally. ( and since we know the Obama Regime deports Blonde Germans who are fleeing religious persecution, he does not, in fact, apply the law equally )
Also being in the U.S. illegally, is still illegal. These people who Obama has promised free stuff to, are hostages of his whim. Until he leaves office.
Unless the Idiot Republican Country Club Rich a00hole leadership changes the law to suit the folks bribing THEM.
It's more and more obvious that Barry AND the Boehner have both received advice to make cheap labor available to certain very rich donors. While most of the talk is about the Mexican & South & Central American trespassers, it seems Barry has got millions to make sure the silicon valley Donors have access to plenty of Indian & Chinese workers they can then pay $40k a year for jobs Americans make $80k+.
As always it's "doing jobs Americans won't do" ( for slave wages )
Rioting. Slander. The wanton personal destruction of people known by their accusers to be innocent. In his latest Firewall, Bill Whittle shows how events like the rioting in Ferguson do not occur in a vacuum, and how Progressives not only tolerate this lawlessness, this New Barbarism -- they teach it.
After spending more than a week trying to locate and read the putative presidential Executive Order on Immigration I am now sure that no such E.O. exists!
After failing to get responses from my various Congresscritters, the public library, and the New York Times….I finally put in a call to the Cato Institute where I was immediately connected to Mr. Alex Nowrasteh, the senior immigration policy analyst.
He explained that the Obamagration reform was not being implemented or even directed by Executive Order but rather through "Executive Action", with implementation accomplished by memoranda from Jeh Johnson, Homeland Security. Mr. Nowrasteh was kind enough to send me links to the memos implementing President Obama’s extralegal decrees.
My interpretation is that an E.O. is too transparent, to easily reversed though legislation, and too directly associable to President Obama so that an even less transparent means was used.
The links sent to me are quoted from the email sent by Mr. Nowrasteh and are quite terrifying.
