Judicial Watch just dropped a huge bombshell on John McCain. One that doesn’t surprise me all that much because I don’t trust John McCain. He deserves to be exposed for this. Judicial Watch has obtained newly released internal IRS documents that show that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” He’s referring to the Tea Party and among the top officials was then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner.
Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel. Many people at the time who support President Trump decried that appointment because of his direct involvement in targeting Tea Party organizations. He should be arrested, not serving as Special Counsel for anything, just as Lois Lerner should be behind bars for her role in all of this.
Kerner, Lerner and other high-ranking IRS officials met on April 30, 2013. IRS employees took notes of the explosive meeting and now they are coming to light. Ten days after that meeting, Lerner admitted that the IRS had a policy of improperly and deliberately delaying applications for tax-exempt status from conservative non-profit groups like the Tea Party. That arguably directly affected elections in the US, including Obama’s election and re-election to the presidency.
The Obama IRS scandal is not over – as Judicial Watch continues to uncover smoking gun documents that raise questions about how the Obama administration weaponized the IRS, the FEC, FBI, and DOJ to target the First Amendment rights of Americans. https://t.co/QdmtNuvyi6

True Pundit has this to report:
“Lerner and other IRS officials met with select top staffers from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee in a “marathon” meeting to discuss concerns raised by both Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that the IRS was not reining in political advocacy groups in response to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Senator McCain had been the chief sponsor of the McCain-Feingold Act and called the Citizens United decision, which overturned portions of the Act, one of the “worst decisions I have ever seen.”
“In the full notes of an April 30 meeting, McCain’s high-ranking staffer Kerner recommends harassing non-profit groups until they are unable to continue operating. Kerner tells Lerner, Steve Miller, then chief of staff to IRS commissioner, Nikole Flax, and other IRS officials, “Maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous.” In response, Lerner responded that “it is her job to oversee it all:”
“Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time. Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely. Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints. Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.”
This is clearly political persecution and should be treated as such. Judicial Watch has reported on this meeting previously. Senator McCain blew a fuse and then issued a statement decrying “false reports claiming that his office was somehow involved in IRS targeting of conservative groups.” McCain’s office was obviously involved, he knew it and sanctioned it. The IRS previously blacked out the notes of the meeting, but Judicial Watch found the notes among subsequent documents released by the agency.
Tom Fitton, who is the President of Judicial Watch, had this to say about the newly obtained IRS documents showing more proof the agency was weaponized under Obama:
“Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel.
The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former IRS director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner admitted that the IRS had a policy of improperly and deliberately delaying applications for tax-exempt status from conservative non-profit groups.
Lerner and other IRS officials met with select top staffers from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee in a “marathon” meeting to discuss concerns raised by both Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that the IRS was not reining in political advocacy groups in response to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Senator McCain had been the chief sponsor of the McCain-Feingold Act and called the Citizens United decision, which overturned portions of the Act, one of the “worst decisions I have ever seen.”
Just as I have said that McCain played a much bigger role in the Russian dossier scandal that is being reported, he was in this up to his eyeballs as well. I consider John McCain and enemy plant in the Republican Party. His hatred for President Trump is off the charts. He may be ill and not on the Hill these days, but he’s still pulling strings there and he has certainly done more than his share of damage in Congress over the years.
McCain despises the Tea Party movement because it sways elections and not only devastates the left but foils progressive Republicans. He wasn’t about to stand for that and thus sent his attack dog in with marching orders for the IRS to ruin the Tea Party. What just tears it for me is that none of these people are being held to account sufficiently. It’s definitely karma for McCain to be exposed and Judicial Watch should be commended for nailing him. In its own way, this is a form of insane justice karmically delivered on McCain as he gets ready to check out of this life. He thought he could hide all of it indefinitely, but things like this never stay hidden forever and you can’t take it with you.
After Major Upset In Texas Election, The 2018 Wave Is Confirmed
So much for the so-called “Blue Wave” in the November midterms!
So it seems like the scheme the left had of planting illegal immigrants in dark red strongholds all over America in the hopes of turning the whole nation into a far left socialist cesspool, like Cuba or Venezuela, is starting to show signs of failure.
100 Percent FedUp reported that earlier this week Democrats all over the nation, along with their complicit mainstream media and Hollywood celebrities, got what can be considered a knock out blow when Pete Flores, who is a Hispanic Republican and newcomer to the world of politics, won handily in a district that has been solidly blue for 139 years.
That’s right, a Hispanic Republican took over a district that has voted Democrat for the past 139 years. Texas voters elected Flores to the Texas State Senate and in turn, flipped the district red. An event which has cemented the Republicans supermajority in the chamber ahead of the November elections.
Here is more via the Texas Tribune:
“Republican Pete Flores’ upset victory in a Democratic-friendly Texas Senate district Tuesday night has spurred GOP jubilation and Democratic soul-searching with less than two months until the November elections.
“All this talk about a ‘blue wave’? Well, the tide is out,” Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick proclaimed at Flores’ election night party in San Antonio.
“Flores beat Democrat Pete Gallego, a former U.S. representative, by 6 percentage points in the special election runoff for Senate District 19, where state Sen. Carlos Uresti, D-San Antonio, resigned earlier this year after 11 felony convictions. The win made Flores the first Hispanic Republican in the Texas Senate and grew the GOP majority there to 21 members, a key addition as the caucus heads toward November looking to retain its supermajority.
“Democrats moved quickly Tuesday night to blame Gov. Greg Abbott for scheduling the special election at a time when turnout was expected to be low and would favor his party. But they were nonetheless demoralized Wednesday, trying to figure out how they let a valuable seat flip in a district where Uresti repeatedly won re-election by double digits and that Hillary Clinton carried by 12 in 2016.
“Gallego’s campaign said that at the end of the day, it was not able to motivate its voters as much as Flores did.
“Our investment was in the grassroots and trying to increase the number of Democratic voters in the densest precincts where people hadn’t turned out and trying to cut through the clutter of all the other campaigns going on targeting November … and it proved to be a lot more difficult to get people tuned in to the fact that an incredibly important race was happening today,” Gallego strategist Christian Archer said.
“The relative enthusiasm for Flores was evident in the district’s biggest Republican counties — places like Medina County, where he routed Gallego with 80 percent of the vote. Flores’ margins in the red counties were more than enough to offset Gallego’s advantage in vote-rich Bexar County, which gave Gallego a modest 54 percent of the vote.
“Flores’ campaign said it benefited from a number of factors throughout the race, starting with the deep Democratic divide that unfolded as Gallego battled state Rep. Roland Gutierrez, D-San Antonio, ahead of the eight-way July 31 special election. Gutierrez, who won Bexar County then, never endorsed Gallego in the runoff, and on Wednesday, the two sides had different accounts of how much of an effort, if any, Gallego made to court Gutierrez.
“But Flores also had to prove himself within his own party and emerge as the consensus candidate on July 31, when two other, lesser-known Republicans were on the ballot. Flores pulled that off with just days to spare, earning late endorsements from a who’s who of top Texas Republicans, starting with U.S. Sen. John Cornyn and then Patrick, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, and Abbott.
“We knew that if we could get in the runoff, we’d have additional help because the stakes would be clear … and the value of winning would be obvious,” said Matt Mackowiak, Flores’ consultant.”
Flores is a retired game warden. He went on to defeat U.S. Representative Pete Gallego for the Senate District 19 seat after receiving support from some of the state’s most prominent politicians. Some of which were Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, and both U.S. Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz.
According to the Texas Secretary of State’s website, Flores won with a whopping 53 percent of the vote to Gallego’s 47 percent with 44,487 total ballots cast. Flores and Gallego both competed in Tuesday’s runoff after emerging from an eight-candidate field in first and second place in July’s special election to replace former Senator Carlos Uresti.
The longtime Democrat lawmaker was forced to resign his seat in June after being convicted of 11 felony charges.
Democrats Just Set Washington Swamp On Fire With Supreme Court Confession
At the very last moment on the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings for his appointment to the Supreme Court, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) produced a letter from an alleged victim who was claiming that she was sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh has ardently denied this and the whole story is just full of holes and unfounded accusations meant to stall his nomination.
Professor Christina Blasey Ford and the Democrats have caused a national outcry over their machinations here concerning an alleged incident that occurred 36 years ago while Kavanaugh and Ford were in high school. It is more than highly suspicious that this woman would show up now and with no attendant evidence or witnesses who are willing to confirm her accusation.
In fact, at least one witness is saying that this never even happened. The man identified as the witness in an alleged sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in the 1980s is claiming he has “no memory” of the incident.
“I did not ask to be involved in this matter nor did anyone ask me to be involved,” Mark Judge, a former high school friend, and classmate of Kavanaugh said in a statement Tuesday afternoon. “The only reason I’m involved is because Dr. Christine Blasey Ford remembers me as the other person in the room during the alleged assault.”
“I have no memory of the alleged incident,” Judge said in a statement. “Brett Kavanaugh and I were friends in high school but I do not recall the party described in Ford’s letter. More to the point, I never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes.”
Ford can’t seem to remember any specifics of the incident either. She can’t recall the exact year, where it happened or even who exactly was present at the time. She also doesn’t know how she got there or how she got home and she doesn’t know who threw the party. Sounds less than credible to me.
It will also not surprise you that Ford is a Democrat who has marched against President Trump. She is also opposed to Kavanaugh on political grounds.
Sixty-five women who knew Judge Kavanaugh in high school are now speaking up for his character. They have written a letter supporting Kavanaugh to the Senate Judiciary Committee defending his character. The letter stated that Judge Kavanaugh has always “treated women with respect.”
From the Patriot Journal:
“But many on the Left do not care about these facts and have already decided that Kavanaugh is guilty.
“They are now demanding that Kavanaugh’s nomination be denied, despite the fact that in America we have a right to due process and the presumption of innocence.
“Interestingly, not all on the Left seem convinced that Ford’s story is accurate, and one prominent Democrat just outright admitted that she doesn’t know if Ford is telling the truth.
From colleague Connor Marley. Feinstein on Ford. Says Ford "is a woman that has been, I think, profoundly impacted, on this..I can't say that everything is truthful. I don't know."

“There you have it. If Senator Feinstein really thought this claim of Ford’s were true, she would have released Ford’s letter when she received it months ago.
“Instead Feinstein sat on this information and released it at the 11th hour in a desperate attempt to stop Kavanaugh from being nominated.
“Feinstein also stated that Ford “did not want to go public” with her accusation, further casting doubt on Ford’s credibility.
“For his part, Kavanaugh is stating he has never even met his accuser.”
Feinstein to Fox on Ford when asked if the accusation will impact how mbrs would vote on Kavanaugh: "I know she did not want to go public. That's why I made the letter. That was taken out of my control"

Feinstein can’t have it both ways here. On the one hand, she accuses Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, while stating that she can’t vouch for everything Ford is saying as truthful. Obviously, Feinstein knows it isn’t or would not be confessing her doubt here. Her statement did set the Washington swamp on fire though.
This is very reminiscent of the Clarence Thomas mess when he had to go through his hearings to become a Supreme Court Justice. Anita Hill accused Justice Thomas of sexual harassment during his confirmation hearing back in 1991. She claimed it happened years before that though… not decades like Ford is stretching for here. This is sheer desperation and obstructionism on the Democrats’ part.
Thomas was painted as some kind of monster back then with lies and contradictions. But it didn’t stick and Thomas is now arguably the strongest constitutional originalist on the Supreme Court.
Feinstein to Fox when asked what will happen if Ford doesn't appear Monday. "I have no say. It's all up to the Republican(s)…"

I expect Kavanaugh will be confirmed before the midterm elections. Grassley has offered a public or private hearing to Ford. At first, she refused, then she insisted on an FBI investigation and now she is demanding more witnesses. The ones I have heard are not doing her any favors but who knows who could be dredged up and convinced into saying whatever here.
Let’s hope that Ford follows Hill into disgraced obscurity. Kavanaugh does not deserve this unwarranted attack and the Democrats should be deeply ashamed over this.
