In IRS/Tea Party lawsuit, Lois Lerner doesn't want her testimony made public. Fears for her life.

 

IRS execs: Our lives at risk in tea party case

http://www.cincinnat...case/101591538/

 

Details about tea party bias claims against the IRS could remain secret because current and former agency officials say their lives are in danger if they publicly testify about the case.

Lois Lerner and Holly Paz both have argued in recent court filings that the threat to their lives outweighs the public's right to hear their testimony about how IRS employees in Cincinnati and Washington D.C. handled applications for tax-exempt status from tea party groups.

Couldn't get the link to open. Is she afraid members of the groups she targeted will want to kill her, the people she did the targeting for want to kill her, or both?

Not the "federal government, but the U.N.....................so.........

 

 

PRIORITIES: UN health agency spends more on travel than on AIDS and malaria combined.

 

 

According to the Associated Press, the WHO routinely has spent about $200 million a year on travel expenses—more than what it spends to fight AIDS and hepatitis ($70.5 million), tuberculosis ($59 million), and malaria ($61 million) combined.

At a time when the cash-strapped health agency is pleading for more money to fund its responses to health crises worldwide, it has struggled to get its travel costs under control. Senior officials have complained internally that U.N. staffers break new rules that were introduced to try to curb its expansive travel spending, booking perks like business class airplane tickets and rooms in five-star hotels with few consequences.

 

“We don’t trust people to do the right thing when it comes to travel,” Nick Jeffreys, WHO’s director of finance, said during a September 2015 in-house seminar on accountability — a video of which was obtained by the AP.

 

Despite WHO’s numerous travel regulations, Jeffreys said staffers “can sometimes manipulate a little bit their travel.” The agency couldn’t be sure people on its payroll always booked the cheapest fares or that their travel was even warranted, he said.

 

“People don’t always know what the right thing to do is,” Jeffreys said.

 

 

 

People don’t know what to do? Here’s a hint:

 

If you work for global nonprofit you probably shouldn’t be flying first class or spending $1,008 per night on a hotel suite that has marble bathrooms and a dining room that seats eight.

 

That’s what the AP says Dr. Margaret Chan, director-general of the WHO, did earlier this month while in Guinea to join the country’s president in celebrating the world’s first Ebola vaccine. Chan alone spent more than $370,000 in travel in 2014—and she wasn’t even the WHO executive with the highest travel expenses for the year.

 

 

The United Nations is a slush fund for politicians and bureaucrats too untalented or unliked to hold office in their own countries.

J. CHRISTIAN ADAMS: Thousands of Foreigners Registered to Vote (and Voting) in Virginia.

 

Some inside the Beltway are in a froth about foreign influence in our elections.

 

Yet I’ll wager they won’t say a word about real foreign influence in elections -- even when actual evidence exists.

 

A new report released today documents that in Virginia alone, 5,556 voter registrations were cancelled because of citizenship defects. Many of those cancelled had gotten on the voter rolls despite saying on their voter registration form that they were an alien and not eligible to vote.

 

Voter history records also show that many thousands of ballots were cast by registrants removed for citizenship defects.

Only Americans should be electing American leaders, but that isn't happening.

 

Even worse, the report documents the extensive efforts by state and local election officials to conceal the extent of noncitizen registration and voting.

 

These efforts include internal emails that revealed an intent to alter public records to hide the full extent of noncitizen cancellations.

 

The report, titled "Alien Invasion II: The Sequel to the Discovery and Cover Up of Non-Citizen Registration and Voting in Virginia," notes that the 5,556 removed for citizenship defects in Virginia are only the tip of the iceberg. These 5,556 were only caught by accident after each told a state agency of his or her alien status after previously registering to vote. Had they never provided an inconsistent answer to citizenship status, they never would have been detected.

 

The report released by the Public Interest Legal Foundation, of which I am president, can be accessed here.

 

PILF originally asked in 2016 for election records demonstrating registrants removed from the voter rolls for citizenship defects. Under federal law, all list maintenance records are subject to public inspection. You would have thought election officials would be transparent and keen to comply with federal disclosure laws.

 

You would be wrong: it took three separate federal lawsuits -- against Alexandria City, Manassas City, and Chesterfield County -- filed by PILF to finally obtain the information.

 

Along the way, other election officials in internal email discussions obtained by PILF contemplated altering list maintenance records to conceal the extent of cancellations for citizenship status.

Some of those aliens must have been Russian so expect to see CNN (when grudgingly forced to repeat this story) put a headline on it of "Proof Russians Hacked the Election".

But if one San Francisco official has his way, every pizza the Marble robot delivers could come with a $1,000 fine and a jail sentence for its human controllers.

IT’S DIFFERENT WHEN THEY DO IT: Maryland Democrats finally confess to gerrymandering a Republican out of office.

 

Something interesting is going on in Maryland this month because a rather famous Democrat from that state has finally said aloud and under oath something which everyone knows, but nobody is supposed to admit in public. Maryland’s chaotic looking map of congressional districts was drawn… (are you sitting down for this?) to oust a Republican from office. I’ll give you a moment to recover from the shock. You see, we all know that’s why gerrymandering takes place and we all know how it’s done, but admitting it puts you in particular trouble with the law.

Former Governor (and Democratic presidential candidate) Martin O’Malley has been drawn into a lawsuit brought in opposition to the scheme and has admitted in court that this was specifically the reason that the lines were drawn the way they were.

From the A.P.

 

VOTER FRAUD: 

 

“Twelve employees of a Democrat-linked group focused on mobilizing black voters in Indiana are accused of submitting fake or fraudulent voter registration applications ahead of last year’s general election in order to meet quotas, according to charging documents filed Friday.”

Oregon’s full-tilt mandate for abortion-on-demand insurance coverage, public funding almost complete

 

 

 

Oregon’s legislature wants to cement the state’s status as the most abortion-friendly in the US — and its governor is champing at the bit to finalize it.

 

Last week, lawmakers passed a bill that would require insurers to pay 100% of all abortion-on-demand costs no matter how late-term they may be, and regardless of motive.

 

It would also require insurers to pay $10 million into a fund for public funding of abortions in what is clearly a gift to Planned Parenthood:
