Federal judge gives the IRS 30 days to come clean

A federal judge has given the IRS 30 days to testify under oath how the Lois Lerner emails were lost.

This testimony will be far different than congressional hearings, in that it will be wide-ranging and will not have Democratic legislators present to provide cover. It will also not be under the time constraints that limit congressional hearings.

In related news, Congressman Steve Stockman (R-Texas) has filed a resolution calling for the arrest of Lois Lerner for contempt of Congress.

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.


All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.


Autographed printed copies are also available at discount directly from me (hardback $24.95; paperback $14.95; Shipping cost for either: $5.00). Just email me at zimmerman @ nasw dot org.

    Maybe the prospect of stiff fines and time behind bars will loosen lips.

    We know how prisoners deal with people who abuse children. But everyone has been abused by the IRS. Should be fun for her in prison.

    Like I said a long time ago.

    Prosecute the normal workers on anything and let them turn on her to get out of it. They have employee handbooks covering the right and wrongs and office security. And they know what rules and laws they themselves broke.

    Never attack the head alone.

    Supporting evidence for the Ist Rule Of Politics:

    The government made statements about what the facts about enrollment in Obamacare was and now we do our due diligence and establish where actual truth exists to our best ability.

    The president apparently has very high approval numbers……….

    Among Muslims!

    Given time now we can more clearly see the actual affects of this particular president and his personal philosophy, his policies and his personal agenda. Congratulations Mr. president your a winner! (not among people who actually believe in upholding the American Constitution, the individual and individual freedom but among people who also believe as you do, socialists, communists, Marxists, Muslims etc. all synonyms for people who accept to live under the “guidance” / oppression of a “higher power”, whether that be an over bearing, over intrusive and controlling government or a religious belief system )

    Barack Obama, a most un American president.

    Anything the pollsters have to say anymore is highly suspect, they can and will turn negatives into positives just in the way they phrase their questions, I do suspect that this poll is on the up and up though!
