Who is John Koskinen?

He’s the fascist Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service, appointed by Barack Obama in 2013 to find a way to hide the fact that Obama personally ordered the campaign against conservative 503(c) organizations. Of course, we don’t know this for certain (yet) because suddenly and enigmatically, Lois Lerner’s emails all disappeared—as in, “Poof.”

How Koskinen arrived at such a lofty and powerful position is not entirely puzzling. Here is a synopsis of his erstwhile career:

• Law Clerk (1965-1966)

• Law Practice (1966-1967)

• Assistant to the Deputy Commissioner on Lyndon Johnson’s National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders (Kerner Commission) (1967-1968)

• Legislative Assistant to NYC Mayor John Lindsay (Republican-then-Democrat) (1968-1969)

• Assistant to Senator Abraham Ribicoff (D-Connecticut) (1969-1973)

• Palmieri Company executive (21 years). One may recall that Victor Palmieri once found himself on the Nixon enemies list (presumably because as a dedicated progressive, Palmieri supported Johnson’s Vietnam War, while Nixon attempted to disengage us from it. From this we might conclude that Koskinen was running true to type. Note: Palmieri Company made their money in the same way that Mitt Romney made his: turning around failed companies. The difference is that Palmieri and his lackeys were all residents of Leftistan.

• Deputy Mayor of Washington DC

• Deputy Director for Management of the Office of Management and Budget

• Chair, President Clinton’s Counsel on Y2K Conversion

• Board Member, AES and American Capital, Limited

• Interim CEO and non-Executive Chairman of The Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (FHLMC) (Freddie Mac) (2008-2011)

There is no real purpose to this post, except to help you understand John Koskinen’s insufferable arrogance and pretended outrage when members of congress label him for what he is: a liar.


  1. simply a longtime member of the POLITICAL CLASS. Entitled, insufferable, and now more than likely, CRIMINAL

  2. So the fascist administration gets another kick in the ass!

    Pity I wonder when the next Scandal will hit the fan?

    Maybe the Jersey Boy can offer us his prediction... LMAO.

    Other than golf, and basketball, this Nitwit can't seem to do anything right.!

    And BTW, why do we have any Borders at all?
    I mean what is the point? Doesn't the whole concept of a BORDER seems kind of racist?

    1. Your comment would be better placed to yesterday's blog post here at Always On Watch.

  5. One needs to go no further. Job description? Bury all of the nastiness of the corruption: Just check it out. Michelle Malkin did a good piece on it.

    Interim CEO and non-Executive Chairman of The Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (FHLMC) (Freddie Mac) (2008-2011)

    1. Bunkerville,
      Do you have a link to that piece by Michelle Malkin?

  6. Lets not get carried away here AOW, my comment was appropriate.

    1. It was indeed appropriate to a BTW in another comment's statement. But not to the topic of the John Koskinen, the topic of this blog post.

      See what I mean?

  7. Why would anyone would be surprised -- or particularly disturbed -- that a lifelong Democrat who early on embraced the Marxian-Fabian-Liberal-Progresive-Statist aspects of his party's platform would eventually assume the position he now has, I can't imagine. The progression was as likely as that of Night following Day.

    Surely no one could expect our Leftist Ideologue of a Prexy to engineer the appointment of anyone in key positions not fully supportive of the Leftist-Corporatist Worldview and consequent tyrannous agenda.

    Would a President Rand Paul or Ted Cruz appoint crypto-Marxists, overt Communist sympathizers, Feminazis, former Domestic Terrorists, and shrieking LGBT Advocates to their Cabinet or to the vacancies on their Supreme Court?

    Not bloody likely!

    The country is now and always has been defined and motivated by rabid, intransigent -- often bitter -- partisanship. It was deliberately designed to be that way.

    Endless opposition greatly retards the chances of out-and-out despotism taking hold.

    The division of powers has been working rather nicely in that direction lately, if you ask me. Except for Ruth Bader Ginsburg, that scrawny, one-time Red Diaper Baby, now a super-annuated, Communist B-tch on the Supreme Court, SCOTUS has been doing an excellent job of slapping down Obama while mauling his testicles, The Would-Be Dictator is now on the ropes, thank God, and the anti-RINO, Tea-Party-Republican-dominated House of Representatives has worked wonderfully well in stymying the Rotten Red Juggernaut that slammed into the nation like a flaming asteroid of mammoth proportions and FORCED Obamacare down our throats and up our fundaments.

    The cost of Freedom is eternal vigilance and preparedness to do battle at the start of a leftist demonstratiom

    And remember the more they insult, lampoon, deride, mock and scorn "us," the WEAKER they reveal themselves to be. But that is -- and always has been -- a TWO-WAY street.

    The best way to fight an enemy is to avoid emulating him at all costs.

    1. FT,
      Today we are seeing the worst aspects of the two-party political system.

      I'm glad that I'm as old as I am!

  8. HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY AOW and Sam and Mr AOW!! red white and blue HUGZZZ!! xoxoxo :-)

  9. It was fun watching Trey Gowdy rip that arrogant b@$t@rd to shreds. What ever happened to that, anyway? I just can't keep up with all of B.O.'s scandals which seem to grow, exponentially!

    1. What ever happened to that, anyway?

      Same thing that's going to happen to this whole manufactured controversy.

      The fringe right needs a new scandal. If you had any sense you'd switch to immigration.

    2. Duck,
      Scroll down to the immigration post I published yesterday.

      Not so sure that the IRS scandal is going to evaporate. We'll find out, I guess.

    3. Next week:

      ...On July 10, IRS lawyers will appear in federal district court to explain why they never reported the emails missing in the context of a lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch. And the following day, the IRS legal team is expected to try to block outside access to the evidence that Lois Lerner's computer crashed—if such evidence exists.

      ...IRS lawyers "will have to explain to U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton why the IRS shouldn't be required to let an outside expert evaluate whether emails on the computer hard drives of former IRS official Lois Lerner and six colleagues really are lost forever, as the agency recently told Congress....

    4. Judicial Watch, they sure have a successful track record.

      You are probably correct that it won't vanish, since there is nothing else to take its place. We;ll have the usual suspects harping on it.

      Sad waste of time.

    5. Ducky, your behavior reminds me so much of a boy I used to know called "Andrew." Andrew lived in my neighborhood when I was a small boy. Everybody disliked him, because he was prone to barging in where he'd not been invited and then treating the assembly to charmingly pugnacious remarks like 'If you don't shut up and give me that ball, I'll squirt "kacky" in your face.'

      Precisely what "kacky" really was no one ever figured out, but we knew from Andrew's obnoxious tone that whatever it was it could not be good.

      My mother didn't like it any more than anyone else, but she -- having survived childhood on the Sidewalks of New York as the daughter of not-very-welcome Italian immigrants -- had some "street smarts" and suggested we should henceforth address poor Andrew as "Kacky" every time he graced us with his odious presence.

      Believe it or not, it worked. The other kids embraced the idea with great enthusiasm, and soon had the tables turned on Andrew who remained a pill, but kept his distance most of the time after that.

  10. Ducky says: "These are not the droids you are looking for. Move along"
    I say, your stupid Jedi mind tricks will not work on us.

  11. The guy could teach gluteal kissing at the 200-300 level in college. Maybe even 400..

  12. Obama encouraged women to have more recreational sex to get their minds off of the horrible things in the daily news!

    Wow, and all this time I thought the he was stupid.!


    1. Did you ever see the movie Die Die, My Darling, George?

      I'm sure the script must have been written with you in mind.


  13. FT,

    Do you suppose that "Ducky" is really just a pen name for Kacky?
