Jason Chaffetz SLAMS Elijah Cummings at IRS hearing

Jason Chaffetz slammed Elijah Cummings and others who have said in the past that this IRS investigation should have been over a long time ago, noting that even the White House press secretary himself blamed this scandal on two low level employees, not caring whatsoever for the targets of his statements and how those lies would turn their lives upside down.



Chaffetz reiterates that he is glad they are holding these hearings and he does believe the White House is involved, despite what the ranking member may think.

Cummings is nothing more than an ideological subversive masquerading as an American.  Contrary to his words here, earlier he did give a little speech where he was saying “move along, nothing to see here.”
Open?  Transparent”  This administration if just the opposite, closed and corrupt!

All tracks lead to Chief Council for the IRS, William Wilkins, an Obama appointee, who made sure those applications DID NOT meet approval for 501 (c) 3 or 4 status prior to the elections. The question is, will he A.) flip on his boy B.) Take the hit himself and go down for him C.) Wear cement shoes before he gets the chance to make the decision D.) Plead the fifth like Lyin’ Lois and retire with a permanent suspension and paycheck and the matter will all be dropped because the GOP doesn’t have the intestinal fortitude to persevere…E.) Who even cares anymore…besides a few tenacious TEA party conservatives?

Cummings: “I want to get to the bottom of this”.
I’m sure you do but you don’t want to ‘get to the TOP of this’ because you already know where that will lead. wink

Thank God for pro-American Constitutional Conservatives in the House like Rep. Jason Chaffetz and Rep. Trey Gowdy..  2014 Mid-terms will be this next turning point election to get rid of as many McRINOs as possible and return the US Senate back into the hands of Conservative Republicans, as well as strengthening the House with more Jason Chaffetz’s and Trey Gowdy’s..  and especially the primary defeat of Boehner, if not the overthrow of his McRINO Speakerdictatorship..

Cummings is one of those responsible for the condition of Baltimore City as he just pushed it all under the rug instead of standing up for something other than his wallet.

Thank you , Mr. Chazffetz!!!  Succinctly put…and true.  This administration is covering up so much and they are ever so willing to throw people under the bus to protect themselves!  It really should be embarrassing to them but their ego is so large that they are not embarrassed!!!  How pathetic is that???  They even went so far as to have the survivors of the Benghazi attack sign Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA) to cover up their wrong doing there!  AND they told us that the person that was responsible for North Africa operations was retired…where is still on active duty!  I no longer ask “how low will they go” because I know they will go to any length to cover up!  Our Constitutional Republic is in dire straights for sure if they get away with the myriad of scandals that have come to light!

Those so-called pro-life Democrats need to think long and hard about what they witnessed and reconsider their party affiliation…

I watched this earlier today on the live feed and did the old walk by and left skid marks on the way as this all began. Have had time to ponder and seeing it again, it is powerful. Congressman Cummings did a little back track after he first began. Do I believe him? I think not. He is trying to make it look like he is magnanimous however we know the difference but most will not.
I agree, we need more like Congressman Chaffetz, she swooned. I pray that we elect those willing to stand up and be counted. Enough is enough. We need to take Washington, D.C back and the battle begins in 2014. What shall be our battle cry?

Oh, yeah, I sure Rep. Cummings wants to get to the bottom of the IRS scandal.  If it looks like the hearings are really starting to pinpoint who in the IRS was directing the spying activities at the behest of the administration, don’t you know that Cummings and other Demorats will do everything they can to confuse those hearings and delay, delay, delay.  The Demorats are just useless and corrupt.

“Species-ism! You oppress me because, by accident of birth, I was born a rat.”

Like rats sensing danger, the Democrats in the House are starting to get nervous that there really IS something there and that somebody at the White House knew about all of this. Cummings was very clear a few weeks ago that he wanted an end to this investigation because he knew where it was headed. This investigation is going to keep going up the food chain until some big people at the White House will have some serious “explaining” to do. And at this rate, that will be sooner rather than later.

There is another “continuing theme”, and I alluded to this several months ago and that is that the White House has created a system of protections that prevent it from being connected DIRECTLY to any and all scandal. I believe this was purposefully designed. OF COURSE the White House is behind all of this! BUT it will NEVER directly touch the president. Every directive is being carried out by minions and not specifically by the White House. The directive may be coming from the White House, but only in verbal order, not in written request. By doing this, O’Bama (He’s Irish you know) will never get his hands dirty and there’s no paper trail to link him to anything. That’s why you hear folks like Cummings INSISTING that the White House is not “involved”. In other words what he’s saying is that you have NO WAY OF EVER connecting the… Read more »

stage9   All corrupt organizations use the same game plan.  Just like Vito Genovese and all the other Dons.  That’s why they have multi- levels underneath them.  The main protection is to have people that think the way the boss does and are not afraid to use any and all tactics to get their way and please the boss.  Words most times never even have to be spoken.  All that is needed is an understanding of the culture involved.

Wow, it’s like having a breath of fresh air blow in the window.  How refreshing to see MORALS AND VIRTUE displayed.  It must have been like that when people heard George Washington speak or Thomas Paine’s famous Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death speech. 
God Bless this wonderful man.  It’s moments like these, that make me want to keep fighting.  And yes, the White House has involvement.  I was born at night, but not last night.
