All in to push the news away from Benghazi.
Something he can be blamed for because only a Ranking officer can declare a stand down and only someone who hasn't served before would issue that order!!!

The country has already failed for so much more than that. The dumbing down of society is working, and the sheeple have lots their wits. Unless the TV tells them to get outraged, nothing will happen.
Ha, you don't know how true you are.

Love all you guys flying off the handle over blatantly obvious manufactured outrage. You sit there and talk about how everyone else is retarded and nothing but a bunch of sheep... But you all participate in the EXACT same behavior that you so proudly call out in others. It's really sad. It's time to turn the idiot box off and learn the real issues, not the ones Fox News picks and chooses for you.

The more the news comes out about the IRS "scandal" the more it makes sense. There was an explosion in the number of applications for 501(c)4 organizations. These organizations are given tax exempt status because they are by law required to focus their efforts on "social welfare". As those audits discovered most of 300ish organizations that got additional scrutiny did not qualify to be 501(c)4's because of their political activities... Something a 501(c)4 is NOT ALLOWED to engage in.

Quick, someone tell me where to focus my anger!

First off, you're only focusing on one scandal and you're using that as evidence that we are sheep because FOX and CNN or reporting it? seconddly, Steven Miller wasn't even holding office during the time of all this. Douglas Shulman was IRS commissioner up until novermber of last year. Miller has only been acting for a few months. He's easily disposable so in order to appease critics, the administration is getting rid of him even though he wasn't really even responsible.

the justice department holding records of AP journalists and their clients is extremely corrupt and the administrations handling of Benghazi is criminal. the AP had the go ahead from both the CIA and the Whitehouse that the info was declassified. the whitehouse was about to make a statement on the matter but once the AP heard that, they knew it was fine to publish, so they did. Eric Holder is straight up lying saying that it is a breach of nat'l security. the whitehouse itself was about to disclose the information to the public.

benghazi is a whole nother' boat. all i know is that some high ranking offiicials should be imprisoned for what they did. military was ready to go in. Carter Ham asked for the go ahead and he was denied. the administration let it happen. they didn't want troops to get involved bcuz the "didn't want the situation to escalate." B.S.! and this is what they firmly adhere to! what's the point of having a military if you wont intervene to save U.S. citiznes and military men because you fear things could get worse? no. this is a cover up. its only a matter of time until the truth gets out. oh and btw, none of this is being reported on mainstream media outlets.

cheers.

edit:pbeaul, if the extra scrutiny on conservative organizations was so legitimate, why is the president condemning it so vehemently. that in itself is inconsistent if what you say is true.

Speaking of needing to know the FACTS... LOL

Maybe you should read the IG report that shows the ILLEGAL activity that the IRS was doing. But I guess it's ok right, because of who's in the White House?

Or it's just ok do perform these activities because it's against someone you might not agree with?

Lets say for a moment that you're right, and now lets flip the coin. Lets say it's 2017 and there's republicans running things. And the IRS singles out left wing groups seeking 501(c)3 and (c)4 status. And they are asking things that they aren't allowed to ask, such as doner lists, meeting notes, etc...

Are you not going to be PISSED that the republican lead agencies singled out opposition groups? And maybe ever released IRS documents to your opposition. You're cool with that?

I was simply making an observation, that most of you talk like you're so enlightened and not a stupid follower like the rest of the sheep. Yet many of you, like clockwork do the exact same thing as the "liberal sheep". When Fox blows something out of proportion many of you get all bent out of shape and parrot all the sound bites fed to you. You've somehow justified that your sheep qualities are better than their sheep qualities... But at the end of the day you're both just a bunch sheep, that put their political ideologies ahead of good judgement.

I agree, but this spying on journalists/citizens crap has been going on for literally a decade+. This "outrage" that is going on now is simply manufactured to keep people focused on what they want you focused on. This outrage is like 10 years too late... While you weren't paying attention most of these programs were started/upgraded under Bush. The government/NSA has been spying on ALL Americans, violating their rights for literally a decade. You just now got a very small taste of what has been going on for years.

If you were aware of what was going on, this wouldn't have been surprising to you. Why do you think the government rushed to pass amendments to the FISA act that provided RETROACTIVE immunity to telecoms back in 2008? Something Senator Obama said he would oppose but ultimately supported?

Where is all the outrage about the government spying on Americans? It's pretty easy to see that it's all manufactured outrage. Smoke and mirrors.

You're right about the Libya stuff being a whole other boat. Britain/France/USA decided that they needed to cause a regime change, started a bunch of turmoil in the region eventually got Gaddafi killed in the streets. Now a bunch of you are surprised that after causing all these problems the sh*t hit the fan and those "rebels", the people that NATO backed who were really just a bunch religious fundamentalists (including Al Qaeda) treated Ambassador Chris Stevens the same way they treated Gaddafi.

Did the administration f^ck up? Yes. The f^ck up was going into Libya in the first place. It's tragic that Ambassador Stevens died, but no more so than all the Libyans that died because of all that crap NATO whipped up.

edit:pbeaul, if the extra scrutiny on conservative organizations was so legitimate, why is the president condemning it so vehemently. that in itself is inconsistent if what you say is true.
Because he has to, he can't allow the institution charged with collecting taxes to be perceived as singling people/companies out for political ends... That's the kind of sh*t the USSR was known for, not America. It's politics and he has to play the game like everyone else, if that means a few heads have roll to save face that's what will happen.

It was illegal because it they were profiling based on political affiliations. Which is funny, because from my experience, most right-wing types generally don't have a problem with the idea of profiling. They call the government stupid and wasteful when they don't profile terrorists... but when the government profiles based on political affiliation for specific a class of tax exception that is not allowed to participate in politics it's somehow a terrible idea. Ignore the fact that most of the organizations that got flagged did in fact get caught red handed violating the law.

It wasn't some witch hunt where none of them did anything wrong, most of them were in the wrong. It was simply HOW the IRS went about selecting them that was proven to be dangerous to say the least.

Or it's just ok do perform these activities because it's against someone you might not agree with?

Whether you agree or not with the group's political stance shouldn't matter. What should matter is whether or not that group adheres to the rules of their exemption class. If left-wing groups are abusing loopholes in the tax code acting as a money laundering front for political campaign contributions I would expect the IRS to treat them the same way.

The real problem is that the IRS let this loophole go on for as long as it did, and people got upset when the IRS clamped down on the abuse...

not really sure who you are referring to in the beginning when you say "you all" ? do you mean conservatives? i wouldn't consider myself conservative. also, i feel like you are coming extremely close to making generalizations.

im only 20. i just started following politics and global affairs and economics 2 years ago. quite honestly i am not that informed of what happened previously. i would have to play catch up at this point and there is so much going on right now it seems nearly impossible to do. however, i know enough not to pin too much on Obama's admin. quite frankly, i think the polarization of america between dems and reps is stupid and sensational and misses the much bigger picture. the problem is the institution of our government. republicans have been mucking it just as much over the past hundred years. both parties want to extend their power over the people and trample on the Constitution. in both parties, the Constitution (our Rule of Law) is largely ignored the second after politicians swear an oath to uphold it. Both parties restrict civil liberties. I feel like im going off on a tangent here and i am assuming you are going to disagree with most of what i have said. that's cool, no worries.

SOunds like "we" "invest" in a "energy Company" then that company sends millions to "their party" in "donations" and then "that energy company" goes out of business after a year or two.

Laundering? No just investing in the future. When did the presidency become an "invest" group.

Let me give you some advice:

1. Everything is Bush's fault. Even if its not. (Clinton was the one pushing for subprime loans to minorities in the late 90s which led to the housing bubble bursting 10 years later.)

2. If you criticize Obama, you're a racist.

3. Anything that is okay for Obama to do is not okay for a Republican to do and if Romney was in the white house right now the left would be asking for Romney's head on a PLATE with regards to the AP records seizure.

4. The media is finally dumping on Obama because they want to take the pressure off Hitlery for 2016.

There has only been one time in history a party has held the white house for 8 years and gotten elected again. That was Reagan 80, 84, and Bush 88.

Lets hope history doesn't repeat itself.
