  1. She can only take the fifth on things that may incriminate HER. But if asked if her boss did this or that she would not be protected unless her knowing and not saying would incriminate her. Bottom line, why do people lie? Because they have something to hide. Why do people take the fifth? Because there is something that might incriminated them. It really is that simple. The thing is, was she lying then or is she lying now, I guess it depends upon which side of her mouth she was using...

  2. This whole thing stings to high heaven... Barry Hussein makes Nixon look like a choir boy. .. All together now, "Obama lied and people died".

    What Nixon did was nothing compared to Obama's using the IRS to target conservatives!

    1. Nixon was always a victim. He was never a victimizer. His only "sin" was his virulent -- and very effective stance against Communism. Since the enemedia, the educational establishment, and the post-New deal D'Rat party have been nearly 100% in favor of Cultural Marxism,it was a foregone conclusion that they would eventually have to "get" Richard Nixon, just as they "got" Joe McCarthy and then posthumously blackened the reputation of J. Edgar Hoover.

      Haven't you noticed how every truly conservative Republican who rises to prominence, and looks for a while as though he might be able to lead us out of the woods gets targeted either with trumped up "criminal charges," that the Big Bosses who control the enemedia makes sure will stick, - OR - is subject to a campaign of ridicule and brutal defamation that always seems to drive him (or her) out of the running in the Public Mind?

      Those who MIGHT possibly save us MUST be destroyed. That is the credo of the quasi-Marxist Establishment that has had a death grip on power for a very long time.

      Meanwhile, the wicked continue to flourish like the green bay tree.

    2. The Rob-olution continues, as Barry spends America into debt so that deadbeats can get free HIV treatments.

  3. If this woman wants to be a martyr for Obama her wish should be granted.

    Maybe a few weeks or months in prison would sharpen her memory.?

  4. There is no doubt that Lois is hiding something and protecting someone very high in the White House Bathhouse Barry perhaps? .
    But "At this point, what difference does it make?"

    You can't make a statement and then take the 5th, either you answer or you don´t. There is no middle!

    1. Yes, she is hiding something and, very likely, protecting someone very high in the White House.

      When will the truth come out?

  5. As I listen to the news, scan the headlines and peek at various blogs each day, I seriously wonder if there is anything left to report BUT "nincompoopery" anymore?

    It's a bizarre world for sure, BUT we should get away from electronic and telecommunications more often, and look at real life more closely. What I see in my daily routine with real live human beings isn't nearly as discouraging and depressing as the distorted version of reality we get from the enemedia -- and from fellow bloggers.

    1. FT,
      Usually, these "Nincompoopery" posts are followed by something uplifting or apolitically amusing for the blog post the next day.

      I agree with you that so much in the blogosphere is discouraging and depressing. The reality, particularly the political and economic reality, is indeed that way. But in order to enjoy the life and the time that we have left on Earth, we should strive to focus some of the time on other matters. Reading fiction is one of my escapes, and I've got a good book right now: What She Left Behind.

  6. "Nincompoopery"“ is a good word to discribe the Liberals, Progressives way of thinking and doing things and running the country. Discombobulated” is one of my favorite words for that. it kind of sums up Obama and the people who voted for him.. !

  7. Let's have some Fun think about other words or phrases that fit these nincompoops

  8. I hope that wasn't Ducky's Imam that wants to stone gays.

  9. Except Lerner did show up and said she'd changed her mind again ...and then Cummings screeched at Issa (Issa, who'd been shut down so MANY times rudely at senate hearings), who prevented him from continuing his tirade which, cleverly on Cummings' part, camouflaged Lois Lerner's second refusal to talk and the very reason she was there in the first place!..the media covered the spat, not that Lerner is STILL not talking.
    Gee, how innocent could she be? :-)

  10. Obama’s IRS minion Lois Lerner pleaded the 5th AGAIN when confronted about her targeting of Tea Party groups! Lois Lerner should tell the truth or be held in contempt of Congress!The only reason you plead the fifth is if you have something to hide. Coward!!

    1. Duck,
      I noticed this in the article to which you linked:

      Would Lamb have qualified for Medicaid if Tennessee officials didn’t turn down the federal expansion under the Affordable Care Act?

      I have family and friends in Tennessee and know quite a bit about the Medicaid program there. There's a several-years "look back" period, and most assets must be seized by the state before Medicaid kicks in. And I do mean most assets too -- right down to the rings on one's finger.

      From what I know about TN Medicaid, the woman's home is on the table for seizure before Medicaid kicks in.

      My point: Medicaid should be the last resort.

      Now, as for lupus, I have a close friend, now nearly 70, who has been battling lupus for about 45 years.

      It sounds to me as if the woman's lupus is under control (well managed). Lupus is often that way -- although major flareups can occur. Stress itself -- and it doesn't take much stress -- can cause the disease to flare up. Clearly, the disease has psychosomatic elements (as do most autoimmune diseases).

      Also, it is imperative with lupus not to be shuttled off to a different doctor. A lupus patient needs continuity. One doctor must be the case manager. The disease does not follow a logical progression, nor does it have a logical protocol for effective treatment.

      The article states: In this case, the ad doesn’t present a full picture of the law’s effects.

      I say: No advertisement does.

  12. z, why did Issa apologize to Cummings?

    1. Tensions often run high on Capitol Hill.

      I'm sure that what happened between Issa and Cummings isn't all that unusual, nor are apologies later.

      The difference now, of course, is that we film footage of so much that transpires on Capitol Hill.

    2. Issa had NOTHING to apologize FOR, whereas Cummings most certainly DID.

      That's The D'Rat Way -- i.e. when you're clearly in the wrong, and someone DARES to say so, you make YOURSELF the VICTIM of "racism," "unfair treatment," "discrimination," "boorish, rude, insolent behavior," etc

      Playing the DEEPLY OFFENDED VICTIM aroused to HIGH DUDGEON is the D'Rats' sotck-in-trade. D'Rats steadfastly REFUSE to ACCEPT CRITICISM, and ALWAYS manage to turn attempts to hold them accountable into a "WITCH HUNT" by "The Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy."

      And because the enemedia is solidly in the D'Rat camp, the D'Rats ALWAYS get away with whatever they want to get away with.

      We live under the TYRANNY of an ENEMEDIACRACY.

  13. I love they way Free Thinke says "the D'Rats"

  14. REMEMBER: When Democrats say some variation of “liberal groups were targeted too” by the IRS – They’re lying.

    The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

    Hundreds of conservative groups were targeted
    At least 5 pro-Israel groups
    Constitutional groups
    Groups that criticized Obama administration
    At least two pro-life groups
    An 83 year-old Nazi concentration camp survivor
    A 180 year-old Baptist paper
    A Texas voting-rights group
    A Hollywood conservative group was targeted and harassed
    Conservative activists and businesses
    At least one conservative Hispanic group
    IRS continued to target groups even after the scandal was exposed
    And… 100% of the 501(c)(4) Groups Audited by IRS Were Conservative

    There is NO EVIDENCE that a single liberal group was given the same scrutiny as conservative groups.

    In fact liberal and Progressive groups were fast-tracked through the system.
    As Eliana Johnson reported at National Review last year: The statistics overwhelmingly show 99.9% targets were conservative groups.

  15. The liberals aka, progressives, aka communists) that protested the Vietnam war, were dedicated Marxist who wanted to see a Communist victory in Vietnam and supported the Soviet agenda. Most of them were kids who turned out as antiwar protesters were just stupid liberal idealists. They had their heads stuck up their collective butts, and didn't understand what they were supporting. But it’s different today, the liberals aka, progressives, aka communists know or think they know what they are doing. They are misguide assholes, supported by a huge base of ignorant idealists who cannot think beyond the simple sound-bites, that they read or hear on their dumb liberal radio talk shows or rags the closet Marxists, are still feeding them this propaganda today. As we see in New York with de Blasio and in Hollywood or on TV late night Talk shows. They ARE on the side of the communists...just as today they are on the side of the Muslim terrorists. You can call them Communist sympathizers!! Look at people like Sean Penn,Alec Baldwin, Susan Sarandon, Danny Glover, Harry Belefonte, Martin Sheen, and the leftist post boy of them all, Ed Asner

  16. Yes in America, you have a right to take the 5th, not to incriminate yourself. . That doesn’t mean it is the right thing to do.

    No, No doubt that Lerner is hiding something, and someone. Something or someone big. Something she could go to jail for. So we need to ask what and why.

  17. Dear Mrs. Progressive: Thank you for sharing your nonsensical concerns. Thank you for calling George Bush a liar, and for posting all those pictures of a chimpanzee and using his name in the caption. Thank your for calling Glenn Beck a a**hole. was very typical of your leftist behavior. And for calling Sarah palin all those stupid names and for calling her Daughter a Whore.
    I have read you blog and I noticed the YOU were one of the people that praised the Glenn Beck boycott. So you must have ben threatened by him weather you wish to admit it or not.. And that colorofchange.org, nonsense that this commie creep led was something that people like you would grab on to as well as anyone that mentions the word "black" and turn it into a race issue.
    Glenn Beck has done his research and no matter what color the president of this country is, this administration's policies are leading us away from the freedom that our founding fathers spelled out for us in the US Constitution. The USA has a Constitution granting us the right to free speech, an unalienable right, and THAT is what should be supported and encouraged by the likes of colorofchange.org, not the silencing of opposing opinions. I trust that you will stand with those of us who support free speech as well, and reverse your decision on pulling your advertising on* the Fox Network and Glenn Beck's program. *Sarcasm* I know you wouldn’t support the FREE SPEECH for any right winger. I know your type. Hence your last post calling him that name that you do so often. And I want to thank you for your list of the sponsors that pulled their ads.
    Because of that blog of yours, I wrote a e-mail to GEICO to inform them why I will no longer being doing business with them if they canceled their support for Glenn Beck.. I have great tenure with Geico and I will switch insurers if they did so. GEICO wrote me back assuring me that they have no intentions of dropping him.
    I believe that Glen Beck has played a very important part in starting the Tea Parties, which led to the 912 project, which has informed hundreds of thousands of people what is really going on with this administration. I also believe as people continue to watch his show, the dissent from the Obama administration is growing bigger every day. .

  18. The leftys are causing him a lot of trouble by accusing him of being the biggest reason for us, "the mob". I also feel that he has been seriously threatened. He was asked to speak in Washington on 912, but said he wanted to bring it to everyone on TV. This may be true or maybe he feels he is endanger. For all the truths, he tells day in and day out, for all the research, for all the smiles and tears you can tell this many really loves America. We need to stand by him in groves, so he can keep up the good work in keeping us informed.
    Thanks Glenn for exposing the Corruption in this administration. Also kudos to Sarah Palin for standing up for America. I don't feel like this administration cares for anything only advancing their left-wing radical progressive agenda. Their followers are forth coming about their agenda. Too bad the White House isn't.
    And what was Van Jones? Frankly, this self-described Marxist ideologue was very likely the most rabid racist ever appointed to a top position in a presidential administration:
    Van Jones is a man who proclaimed that "white people pollute black neighborhoods."
    Van Jones is a man who angrily came to the defense of Mumia Abu Jamal, the black nationalist death row inmate who cold-bloodedly gunned down a conscientious Philadelphia police officer.
    Van Jones is a 9/11 "Truther" who believes that the United States intentionally bombed our own Twin Towers in order to justify an attack on innocent Muslims.
    Van Jones is a man who declared, "Most of the people who die in police custody die not from drugs or some mysterious syndrome but from police abuse"
    If any of that sounds familiar, it may be because Van Jones preaches the same sick gospel of racial hatred that Barack Obama eagerly sat under for more than 20 years as a contributing member of the Wrong Reverend Wright's Church of Black Separatism and Marxist Dogma.
    It may be because so much of it echoes Barack Obama's own denunciation of "typical white people" and "people who don't look like us" during his presidential campaign. And it may also be because of Barack Obama's ugly attack on a good and decent police officer for "acting stupidly" simply for doing his duty.
    Most Americans tell the pollsters that they don’t like ObamaCare. But they detest Republicans, the very people who unanimously voted against it.
    They voted for Mr. Obama because he promised he wasn’t going to play the old polarizing game that politicians have always played. Today he’s the most polarizing president in memory, and thanks to the American people, his approval ratings, though not as high as they once were, are still the kind W would have killed for.
    They voted for Barack Obama because he said he would bring us together. Knowing what the American people wanted to hear, he said he would respect the other side’s point of view. During the showdown over the debt ceiling and the government shutdown, Mr. Obama and his acolytes used the language usually reserved for terrorists to describe Republicans. They were hostage takers and people with bombs strapped to their chest, in the words of one of the president’s top political advisors. Or they were like wife beaters, according to Senator Barbara Boxer, one of President Obama’s most loyal allies. And lets not to give a BIG thanks to the Butcher of Benghazi Hillary for keeping our Military weak and helpless. A helpless military: Just what Obama ordered! incompetence, deception, and dishonesty become the hall marks of the Obama administration, And YOU support him! PERHAPS THIS IS WHY Putin is Humiliating and CRAPPING all over the United States of America

  19. Equating Democrats with liberal progressives is ludicrous.

    Lets us not forget that both Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond were Democrats before they were Republicans, as were many others. .
    There are a number of fine Democrats around these days, however I can not think of any of our Progressive or Radical liberals that I say the same for. In fact I can easily say that I despise the Progressives, who mostly more Socialist than Democrats. Progressivism and Socialism go hand in hand.
    In my eyes, the definition of hate is Progressive Socialism. As I have once read, Progressive Socialists (a.k.a. liberal Democrats) are like Pig Farmers. In an effort to bury opposing viewpoints they sling pejorative slop, name callers, the labeling as “bigot,” “hater,” “wingnut” or “racist” those with whom they disagree.
    The name calling from the left reminds me of when I was a kid and how the neighborhood bullies resorted to slinging a load of name calling to other kids that they didn't like, so they labeled them as sissies and other names that I wouldn’t write in a public forum. Progressive-Socialists don't use fact, reason, documentation or proof to back up their claims about those with whom they disagree. They just hurl names, and insults like the neighborhood bully who wants to satisfy his craze by name calling i.e. calling Sarah Palin dumb, and drawing or posting pictures od Chimpanzee’s when referring to George Bush or liking Condoleezza Rice to Aunt Jemima, and Herman Cain to a Uncle Tom.. Because they are a bunch of sicko Cowards. John Sylvester, the liberal program director and morning personality in Madison WI. referred to Secretary of State Colin Powell as an "Uncle Tom" . I rest my case.

  20. And speaking of Aunt Jemima, have you seen Oprah lately, she looks alot like Aunt Jemima
