Must Read “Leftovers”

May 3, 2017

Here are some articles I’ve had in the archives for a while.

WE SHOULDN’T TRUST INDIVIDUALS POSSESSING GOVERNMENT POWER

IRS TARGETING AND LOIS LERNER

Court Rejects IRS’s Plea To “Just Trust Us”, Permits Discovery Into IRS Targeting, at aclj.org.     Another Victory Over The Abusive IRS Targeting Of Conservatives, at aclj.org. When the IRS can slow down the legal process for four of more years, there is no justice. Government agencies have unlimited finances to drag out every case. The plaintiff doesn’t.

Lois Lerner Wants Her Deposition In Tea Party Case To Be Sealed: She’s Afraid People Will Want To Kill Her, at tammybruce.com. Lois Lerner doesn’t really believe her life is in danger. She just wants to protect her @$$. The people she targeted haven’t threatened her up to this point. Even though they know she targeted them. She has been collecting her pension ever since she retired, before she could be fired. Can you get a sweet gig like that?

Most of these bureaucrats are not elected. But they are politically biased toward protecting their fiefdoms.

YOU DECIDE IF OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SURVEILLED TRUMP

Obama Officials Made List Of Russia Probe Documents To Keep Them Safe, at nbcnews.com. Or was the purpose to share it so widely so it could eventually be leaked?

Did President Obama’s Own Defense Deputy Admit Obama White House Spied On Candidate/President-Elect Trump? at the burningplatform.com. What do you think?

Confirmed: Susan Rice “Unmasked” Trump Team, at zerohedge.com. Leaking who was unmasked is the problem. She is not denying back door surveillance happened.

Susan Rice Responds To Trump Unmasking Allegations: “I Leaked Nothing To Nobody” at zerohedge.com. I am not much of a grammarian but I think her quote is a double negative. Which means she leaked something to somebody. What does “incidental surveillance” mean?

Representative Schiff Has Seen Devin Nunes’ Evidence For Obama Surveillance – Here’s What He Said, theblaze.com. Democrat Schiff sang a different tune after he saw what Nunes saw.

FBI Got Court Order To Monitor Ex-Trump Adviser In Russia Probe: at reuters.com. More evidence of surveillance?

Obama, Comey Relied On Discredited Dossier To Obtain FISA Warrant On Trump Campaign, at zerohedge.com. Fake Dossier + Real Surveillance = Fake News.

You decide. Did surveillance happen?

TRADE INTERVENTION BY GOVERNMENT

Here’s What’s Behind The US-Canada Dairy Battle That Has Chuck Schumer Agreeing With Trump, at businessinsider.com. You know it is a bad policy when Schumer and Trump agree on trade. The answer is to let individuals in America trade with individuals in Canada. Agriculture in both countries is subsidized. That is where the problems starts.

Trump Slaps First Tariffs On Canadian Lumber, at money.cnn.com. Canadian lumber is cheaper. It is subsidized by Canadian taxpayers. So Canadian taxpayers are literally paying us to buy Canadian lumber at a lower price. Why shouldn’t we take advantage of their stupidity? Our answer is to raise our level of stupidity above theirs. We are going to raise the price of Canadian lumber higher by putting a tax (tariff) on it. What will be the next move on this checker board of stupidity?

How can Trump think on the one hand that lowering federal taxes will benefit the economy, and on the other hand think that increasing a tax on lumber will benefit the economy?
