Off message!!!

The new head of the IRS has apologized to those who suffered because of the agency’s targeting of conservative groups, after he testified before a House subcommittee for the first time.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told reporters after the hearing before the House Ways and Means Committee that the singling out of such organizations for special scrutiny would be “intolerable,” and vowed the IRS is not doing so now.

“It won’t happen going forward,” Koskinen said. “And to the extent that people suffered accordingly, I apologize for that.”

Koskinen also expressed concern over the amount of time and manpower being spent by the IRS on the investigation into the scandal, calling the probe a “major drain” on resources.

“Which is one of the reasons I hope we can get to closure as soon as possible to get it behind us,” he said. “The facts will be what they are and we’ll respond appropriately. But we have a lot of resources that we could actually put to productive use dealing with services to taxpayers.”

It is somewhat heartening to see that the old Democrat tactic of merely repeating a lie (with generous help from the press) until the public believes it isn’t quite as reliable as it used to be. Sure, there are those who long ago killed all of their brain cells getting drunk on the Obama Kool-Aid and will gobble up whatever garbage is fed to them. But it doesn’t work on everyone now. Baby steps.

I do agree with Koskinen that too much time and manpower is being spent by the IRS investigating this. The agency shouldn’t be investigating itself — we know how that usually works with these internal government reviews. They find a couple of scapegoats and say it was an isolated problem or they find no fault at all.

If only the attorney general would hel…oh, never mind.

"If It Was a Fake Scandal, Why Did the New IRS Chief Apologize for It?"
==================

I was asking myself that very question earlier today as I listened to Koskinen - and reflected back on that O'Zero interview with O'Reilly. O'Zero will need a sit-down with this guy to get him on the same page - you know the one - "there are no scandals - there is nothing to apologize for."

I suspect there will be plenty to apologize for - if only justice would catch up with these clowns. And that includes Koskinen whom has no doubt been told to continue the suppression of Tea Party organizations. This should piss off any American that knows about what is going on. Trouble is the MSM is absent in reporting. The 'coming clean' act put on by Lois Lerner did nothing to alter the heavy hand of the IRS/White House suppressing conservative activities. How can this continue?

And so it goes - until We The People take action. That is what it will take - and it would seem 'they' are daring us to try.

The thing I love about my fellow Americans is that they can tell the difference between a lying sociopath and the drones and pimps that work for him and the real truth.

Under Lois Lerner's tutelage there was corruption and manipulation and repression and hassling of groups even remotely associated with tea party principles. Any 501c hassling of Obama/Soros friendly groups was orders of magnitude smaller.

Period.

If you hold your breath and expect the foot dragging so called "investigation" at justice directed by the chick who personally donated over $6 grand to Barack to come out with the truth, you will get blue in the face.

Period.

John Boehner is to blame for this debacle. Not just the IRS scandal which is bad enough but for the lack of progress on Benghazi, Fast and Furious, NSA privacy violations, and the list goes on. All congress does these days is investigate the zillion federal agencies that are abusing us 24/7 at the direction of the president and his cronies. We need appointment of Special Prosecutors for each one of these situations. Also we need legislation to repeal all Federal Unions with all their rules that protect these white collar criminals and deny we citizens the satisfaction of firing these bozos and denying them their -----you guessed it BONUSES!! After being abused and tormented we now fork over more money to these thugs. We need to win the next election first however and the day after begin impeachment proceedings against this dictator named B H O.

There is no way that the GOP Establishment Leaders will do anything that could possibly lead to an impeachable offense of the first black president. Period.

Their goal all along was just to highlight as much as they can to show Republicans that they are "working" on it.

Oh, and by the way, if Hillary is elected president in 2016 there is no way that the GOP Establishment Leaders will do anything that could possibly lead to an impeachable offense of the first female president. Period.

I take the 5th just because it lends intrigue to my testimony...it's a cakewalk and I don't care... the DOJ told me to... no, not exactly. I take the 5th because I am afraid that my actions will prove malfeasance beyond a reasonable doubt (Said Lois Lerner) - and crap! I hate being the fall guy/girl for a really corrupt IRS team.

DOJ won't answer questions from Congress because "the investigation is ongoing," yet Obama asserts "not a smidgen of corruption" is involved? How could he know? Is the fix in?

Or is he just lying - again?

A flat tax would eliminate the need for most of the IRS employees. Then their activities would be a problem for local law enforcement.

I don't know about that. He struck me as a straight shooter in yesterday's testimony.

Maybe I'm just desperately seeking a glimmer of honesty inside this cabal that has taken over gov't in DC.

It is hard to present a united front for action while some of us are more interested in questioning the purity of others' conservative credentials.

It's impossible to "present a United Front" when many of the people who should be opposing this criminality, are busy collaborating with it.
