During his Super Bowl interview with Fox’s Bill O’Reilly, President Obama claimed that there isn’t a “smidgen of corruption” in the IRS abuse scandal. O’Reilly failed to follow up with a question that could trouble the president’s take.

During House testimony today, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) tore the president’s take to shreds. Take a look.

Gowdy notes that to date, not a single person from any of the targeted groups have been interviewed by the FBI. Not one. Three have been asked, but none have been interviewed yet.

Gowdy also notes something that we and others noted right after the interview: If there was no corruption, why did IRS official Lois Lerner take the Fifth Amendment and refuse to testify?

Congressman Trey Gowdy is all about enforcement of existing (on the actual books to this day) immigration laws.

What a concept.

Congressman Paul Ryan has reportedly taking immigration over with the slimy Chuck Schumer.

The most scary thing is that we have these FACTS but no leader able to ignite a political, cultural, moral counterinsurgency against the totalitarians who want to murder Freedom.

That is the most scary thing. Totalitarians are what they are, if given an occasion, a slave press, and a sleepy nation.

The White House, the DOJ, and the FBI, are all clearly more interested in covering up and burying the IRS wrongdoing than investigating and punishing the responsible people.

This is a big mistake because it's obvious the abuse occurred, and people are losing faith in the impartiality of the government. If the federal government loses the trust of the People, it's finished. Maybe not today, but eventually and inevitably.

Once all Federal agencies and departments are corrupted (are we there, yet?) who is investigating whom will not matter. Nice knowin' ya, Constitution.

Ain't that the truth.

People have to learn that the corruption is systemic. It is showing itself in various forms from the corruption of our monetary system to the breakdown of our families to failing education systems. Without an intervention by the "good guys" we are toast.

"The FBI still has not interviewed a single leader of the targeted groups."

Reach the verdict first, look for evidence later ... or never. Queen of Hearts Obama.

President Pinocchio, Emperor Empty Head, Obama has become such a pathological liar as to be in a mental institution for the criminally insane.

FBI investigations are not conducted based on the whim of the investigating agent. There are required steps for each type of investigation set down in the FBI's own policies: http://vault.fbi.gov/miog.

A logical step for any oversight body would be to compare the actual investigation to the MIOG and ask the FBI and DOJ to explain any discrepancies.

Gowdy's own statements support giving legal status to DreamAct "kids". That's called giving special treatment to illegals. If the parents of DreamAct "kids" had squatted in someone else's house for many years those "kids" would not have earned a right to stay in someone else's house.

Enforcement would mean treating DreamAct "kids" like any other illegal living in this country. Go home, get in the back of the line, apply in the usual manner, and wait until you hear from us. You will know someone is serious when they refuse to change the law until the border is secured, not change the law because someone says they will secure the border. DreamAct kids are just people who's parents put them in a bind. It's not our responsibility to fix that problem.

None of the 41 plaintiffs (zip zilch nada) has even been interviewed by the justice department in its so called investigation of the FBI.

And yet a sitting president has concluded there is not a smidgen of corruption or, better stated by Trey Gowdy, a scintilla of criminality.

They attack the elderly, engage in retaliation and target individuals and groups. Where are all the patriots who work for this nation? Where is honor?

You know something? It doesn't matter anymore whether abuse occurred or not. THE PUBLIC THINKS IT DID, and therefore, the credibility of the IRS has taken a huge hit. They, perhaps more than most government agencies, must be above reproach, or as close to it as one can possibly get.

What they must do now is bend over backwards to eliminate any wrong-doing. Anything less will be seen as an admission of guilt... and rightfully so.

But they're not going to do that, are they?
