Loretta Lynch: Abuse of Prosecutorial Discretion and Evasion of Duty = Lois 'Investigating Republican Sympathizers' Lerner Walks

God but it feels good to live in a country where White Liberal Guilt voted for a President based on his ethnicity over bothering to find out what he really was.

American Thinker
By James Longstreet
Prosecutorial discretion was first described to me thus:
If a police officer catches ten people speeding, and the traffic court has the resources to prosecute only five, then those five who were most egregiously in violation of the speed limit will be prosecuted.  The discretion is guided by a consideration, in this case by the limit of resources of the traffic court.
At the very worst, in the IRS Lerner case, we have a public servant using her position at a federal agency to impede the efforts of a political party to which she and the administration were opposed, and engaged against, in a national election.  And at the very worst, these actions swayed the national election results.
Loretta Lynch, Obama’s appointed attorney general, admitted that Lois Lerner was protected by prosecutorial discretion.
“I believe that in the exercise of prosecutorial discretion, the matter was handled and was resolved,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch told the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday morning.
Lynch continued,
Our review found that the management of the process by which tax-exempt applications were handled at the IRS was characterized by mismanagement and inefficiency in numerous circumstances.
May we ask Attorney General Lynch, “What guided the discretion used in the decision to not proceed with prosecution?  Mismanagement and inefficiencies directed at specific political opponents ceases to be frivolous or random.” 
The working definition of prosecutorial discretion in this case seems to be as follows:
Prosecutorial discretion refers to the fact that under American law, government prosecuting attorneys have nearly absolute powers. A prosecuting attorney has power on various matters including those relating to choosing whether or not to bring criminal charges, deciding the nature of charges, plea bargaining and sentence recommendation. This discretion of the prosecuting attorney is called prosecutorial discretion.
As we know, Lerner refused to testify.  Documents were not provided.  Communications between the IRS and then-AG Eric Holder were not provided.
Darrell Issa was adamant in his retort to Lynch’s assertion.
Per the Federal Statute:
Whenever a witness summoned as mentioned in section 192 of this title fails to appear to testify or fails to produce any books, papers, rec­ords, or documents, as required, or whenever any witness so summoned refuses to answer any question pertinent to the subject under inquiry… it shall be [the U.S. attorney’s duty] to bring the matter before the grand jury[.]
“Shall be the duty.”  Lynch has no power, no right to use discretion to shun her responsibilities of office.  On her part, it is a failure of duty and a breach of her oath.  Lynch’s duty seems to lie elsewhere, as did Holder’s.
Therefore, we are entitled to speculate, for we have been deprived the mechanics of truth discovery.
The speculation is thus.  We have a federal agency (IRS) hamstringing the efforts of the opposing party in an election year, the prosecution of which is short-circuited by a nebulous discretion, applied by an attorney general in violation of a federal statute, a person so appointed by the candidate who prevailed in the election in question over that opposing party so harmed by the abuses of said agency.
Why have an attorney general?  Slow-playing the Hillary document release, directing immigration officials to shirk their duties, suing states that assist in the implementation of federal law, fomenting racial frictions, refusing to appoint special prosecutors, and using undefined discretion to inhibit the discovery of truth are all curious activities for the alleged top legal official in the nation.
Serving at the pleasure of the president takes on a new meaning.  Apparently, that is why we have attorneys general.

Thank You Mr Longstreet and American Thinker.

Obama: Do Not Acknowledge Terrorism Or They Win

User avatar
In response to the latest string of terrorist attacks in Egypt, Paris and Mali, President Obama has vowed to "never, ever, ever" discuss terrorism anymore, stating that "if we acknowledge terrorism exists, then the terrorists will have won."

Speaking from the White House Press Room, the President gave an example of the Eagles of Death Metal, an American rock band whose concert in Paris became a scene of a bloody terrorist attack earlier this month. "Those folks should have kept playing," he said. "When they stopped playing and ran for their lives, the terrorists won. I am encouraging all citizens: if you see anything suspicious, just ignore it and keep doing what you’re doing, or the terrorists will have won."

Taking his point further, President Obama presented his new plan to combat terrorism. "What we are determined to do is to create a safe space - right here in the White House Press Room - where we are free from the tyranny of offensive ideas, facts, and actions. So from now on, no more questions about politics, ISIS, or Donald Trump. None of that stuff. We can talk about basketball, nutrition, or beer. I've got some some new jokes too, if you want to hear them."

An awkward silence that followed was interrupted by a question from the back of the room about intelligence reports concerning the Mali bombings.

President Obama responded to it by placing his index fingers in his ears and humming loudly, saying he couldn’t hear anything due to the loud noise he was making. He then stopped abruptly and invited everyone in the room to try it and see how easy it is not to hear anything.

The President then ended the press conference by saying that there was a group of random protesters outside the White House and he couldn't wait to usher them in and meet their demands.

Shoe In For New FDA Commish Robert Califf: More Of The Same: Bought And Paid For Industry Insider

Robert Califf, MD, who is currently deputy commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), was nominated by President Barack Obama on Sept. 15, 2015, to be the FDA’s commissioner.
Califf was born in 1951 in Anderson, South Carolina, and grew up in Columbia, South Carolina. Califf was one of four children whose father was an architect. He attended A.C. Flora High School in Columbia and played on its 1969 state title basketball team. It was also there that he met the woman who would become his wife, Lydia.
After graduation, Califf went to Duke University, in Durham, North Carolina, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in 1973 and medical degree in 1978. He did his residency in internal medicine and cardiology at the University of California San Francisco, but returned in 1982 to serve on the faculty of Duke, where he remained for more than 30 years.
At Duke, Califf became a world-renowned researcher, eventually churning out more than 1,200 papers during his time there. He was also a go-to source for journalists writing about new drugs or other topics relating to cardiac issues.
He was founding director of the Duke Clinical Research Institute and organization director of the Duke Translational Medicine Institute, which he founded in 2006, and professor of medicine in the Division of Cardiology at the Duke University Medical Center. 
But as is common in health research, Califf worked closely with drug companies in his lines of investigation. More than half the funding for his research came from such firms as MerckNovartis, and Eli Lilly. In his last full year at Duke, 2014, Califf listed six drug companies on his financial disclosure form from which he either got a part of his salary, drew a salary for consulting or in which he owned an equity stake. “In a sense, he’s the ultimate industry insider,” Daniel Carpenter, a Harvard political science professor who has written extensively about the FDA, told The New York Times. Califf raked in about $32,000 in consulting fees in 2014, according to the federal database Open Payments, putting him in the upper half of those doctors receiving payments. According to the Times, Califf has been donating his consulting fees to nonprofits since the mid-2000s.
But in 2014, Califf made news when he told a meeting of biomedical researchers, lawyers, and industry experts that regulation was a hurdle to be overcome.
Califf’s industry connections may have been what stood in the way of him being named commissioner earlier. He was considered for the job by President George W. Bush in 2001 and was considered a frontrunner for the post when Obama came into office in 2009. It was said at the time that he was passed over in 2009 because of his perceived closeness with the drug industry.
Those issues rose again in Califf’s confirmation hearing on Nov. 17, 2015, before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. Califf drew opposition from Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) on his ties to the drug industry. “At a time when millions of Americans cannot afford to purchase the prescription drugs they need, we need a new leader at the FDA who is prepared to stand up to the pharmaceutical companies and work to substantially lower drug prices,” Sanders said, according to the Times. “Unfortunately, I have come to the conclusion that Dr. Califf is not that person.”
The advocacy group Public Citizen has also urged that his nomination be voted down. “Califf’s appointment as FDA commissioner would accelerate a decades-long trend in which agency leadership too often makes decisions that are aligned more with the interests of industry, rather than those of public health and patients,” Michael Carome, MD, director of Public Citizen’s Health Research Group, said in a statement.
Nevertheless, most members of the Senate committee indicated that they would support Califf’s nomination when it came up for a vote.
Among the early issues facing Califf if he’s confirmed is the regulation of e-cigarettes and the challenge of getting drugs to market sooner. At the time of his appointment as deputy commissioner, Califf said he was in favor of streamlining the drug approval process. 
Califf is a golfer and a huge fan of Duke basketball. He and Lydia have three children: Sharon, Sam, and Tom.

Thank You Mr Straehley and AllGov.

And if you're sick of hunting for a 3rd job to Pay for the Emperor's Remaking of America, according to Reuters:
The FDA oversees products ranging from food and drugs to tobacco and cosmetics, which account for about 20 cents of every dollar spent by U.S. consumers.

So, yeah, this FDA machine and its owners are no small beer/chump change.

It's going to come out of your pockets and your great, great grandchildren's pockets.

ISIS Built Vast Network of Tunnels Under Iraqi Town Of Sinjar: Found Littered With U.S. Made Weapons, Copies Of The Koran

Which leaves us with the question, "How did ISIS get those American made weapons?"
Taking a page from the Vietcong.
Under the Iraqi town of Sinjar, Islamic State militants built a network of tunnels, complete with sleeping quarters, wired with electricity, and fortified with sandbags. There they had boxes of US-made ammunition, medicines, and copies of the Quran stashed on shelves.
The Associated Press obtained extensive video footage of the tunnels, which were uncovered by Kurdish forces that took the city in northwestern Iraq earlier this month after more than a year of Islamic State rule.
“We found between 30 and 40 tunnels inside Sinjar,” said Shamo Eado, a commander from Sinjar from the Iraqi Kurdish fighters known as peshmerga. “It was like a network inside the city.”
“Daesh dug these trenches in order to hide from airstrikes and have free movement underground as well as to store weapons and explosives,” Eado said, using an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State, which is also known as ISIS or ISIL. “This was their military arsenal.”
The video, shot by a freelancer touring the town with Kurdish fighters, showed two tunnels running several hundred yards, each starting and ending from houses, through holes knocked in walls or floors.
The narrow tunnels, carved in the rock apparently with jackhammers or other handheld equipment, are just tall enough for a man to stand in. Rows of sandbags line sections of the walls, electrical wires power fans and lights, and metal braces reinforce the ceilings. One section of the tunnel resembled a bunker. Dusty copies of the Quran sit above piles of blankets and pillows. Prescription drugs — painkillers and antibiotics — lie scattered along the floor.
In another section of the tunnel, the footage shows stocks of ammunition, including American-made cartridges and bomb-making tools.

National Abortion Federation President Vicki Saporta Blames Planned Parenthood Videos For Colorado Springs Shooting


The shooter’s motivation has not yet been reported but they’re already off to the races, with a side of trying to defend Planned Parenthood selling baby parts thrown in…
A series of videos attempting to discredit Planned Parenthood ignited a wave of threats, arson and protests against the medical clinics and culminated in a deadly shooting in Colorado, pro-choice activists believe.
The two manipulated videos released by the Center for Medical Progress show what appears to be Planned Parenthood employees with its Denver facility discussing the harvesting of fetal tissue for science — and being reimbursed for it — increased threats against clinics that both offer abortions and those that do not.
The covert videos captured by undercover pro-life activists accused Planned Parenthood of profiting from abortions. The group stopped accepting reimbursement funds for fetal tissue as a result.
“There has been a direct correlation in the release of these videos and these threats,” National Abortion Federation president Vicki Saporta told the Daily News hours after a deadly attack killed two civilians and a police officer at a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs.

Thank You NYDN and Dapandico. 
"“I would expect he was inspired by the magnitude of hate speech on the Internet,” Saporta added."
Well, if it was Our child (and for that matter everyone's Else's children too) we'd have to go with the Hate Speech over the Scissors jammed into the spinal cord through the back of the neck. 

When you DO see the shooter reported as having a 'History of Mental Illness' or 'Mental Health Issues' you need to know what they're really reporting.

Which is that the Shooter has already been through the Suicide/Homicide/Aggression producing Mental Health System or the Shooter wouldn't have that History for the media parrots to dig up and squawk about.
