Another Hoax: Treasury Finds No Evidence of Political Retribution in Audits of James Comey and Andrew McCabe

They were chosen for audits by random selection by a computer, as is normal, and as people told them and the various Democrat conspiracy theorists of BlueAnon.

Audits of two top former FBI officials who became political foes of former President Trump were not the result of any misconduct on the part of the IRS, according to a report released this week by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).

The TIGTA report found that the audit selection process in 2017 and 2019, which were the years that former FBI chief James Comey and his deputy Andrew McCabe received especially intense National Research Program (NRP) audits from the IRS, was random and carried out correctly.

"Our assessment of the original sample selection process concluded that the IRS randomly selected TYs [tax years] 2017 and 2019 tax returns for NRP audits," the TIGTA report found.

TIGTA said that IRS computer programs "categorized returns in the correct strata" and "correctly selected tax returns for audit." The IRS "did not include malicious code that would force the selection of taxpayers for an NRP audit."

Democratic lawmakers who had suspected that the audits received by Comey and McCabe were political retribution for not backing off the investigation into former President Trump's political ties with Russia expressed satisfaction with the inspector general's report.

On November 14 — six days after the midterm elections — USA Today reported a senior FBI official said the “bulk of the threats leveled against historically Black colleges earlier this year are believed to be linked to a single juvenile who has been prosecuted as a minor by state authorities.”

179 The Chinese Foreign Ministry demanded in remarks on Wednesday that U.S. armed forces make “substantial and substantive cuts to its nuclear arsenal,” with the goal of ultimately ending America’s nuclear program.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian – a zealous “wolf warrior” diplomat known for spreading the unsubstantiated conspiracy theory that the Chinese coronavirus pandemic began as e-cigarette lung injuries in Maryland – demanded an end to the American nuclear program in response to a question on a Pentagon report revealing that the Chinese Communist Party is working to dramatically expand its own nuclear capabilities.

191 Musk bought Twitter to promote himself and his "products". He actually lives off the US and CHinese governments (carbon credits, SpaceX, slave Tesla labor). He couldn't care less about free speech, etc.

His new "Semi" truck will go 500 miles on a single charge! Leaving out a couple of big points. One, the battery weighs 26,000 pounds, compared to 2100 pounds for a fully fueled diesel semi. Fuel has far more energy storage than a battery.

That weight also means it has to haul about 24,000 pounds less than normal because of various state and federal weight limits.

So you're going to get far less product to people. You're going to get it with a 26,000 pound bomb that gets the same mileage in PERFECT conditions. What happens in the winter? Have you seen how long it takes to "fuel up" a Tesla semi?

I'm so tired of Musk being worshipped. He's a con man. Not too dissimilar than Trump.

The GOP died at the national level during that period. It likely had been controlled opposition since at least the second Clinton term, but it wasn't so obvious then. To circle back to ace's post here, the IRS is about to deploy 84,000 freaking armed auditors to go after small fry and McCarthy only will do a few show boats and McConnell won't even do that much.

Maybe there is, maybe there isn't. My opinion is it doesn't matter. "installing the right people" won't fix anything unless they're installed everywhere, all at once. Our political problem isn't a staffing issue. It's endemic. Politics are broken because We The People are broken. Everybody (or enough of everybody) wants to fix everybody else's problems. That culture doesn't get fixed in one lifetime, and it doesn't get fixed without a whole lot of pain and bullshit until people learn that being a civic minded busybody means everything goes to shit.

273 Unless there's more to this story than what I've found, it's a Financial Times report that quotes a low-level state legislator saying that they may be working to reverse things if Iger pulls back.

There's nothing in the story saying that DeSantis supports it.

------------------------

DeSantis' camp hasn't denied it. In fact, they admitted a "plan is in the works and will be released soon."

If you parse their non-denial denial, the only thing they actually take issue with is the way it's being characterized, not the substance of the report.

Sounds like DeSantis impulsively moved to remove their self-governing status, created a logistical & political nightmare because FL taxpayers & localities were going to get left holding the bag, and now has backtracked and is looking to save face by a nominal tax increase on Disney in return for self-governing status.

Same with any other candidate fwiw. The invisible primary has already begun and it is boring to watch like paint dry because most of it is behind the scenes and political ops including causing exhaustion and infighting on the right. Just scroll past and you will be fine.

He has capital gains. However, once you stop adjusting the basis then the entire sale of stock become income
Posted by: Mallamutt, RINO President for Life at December 02, 2022 01:51 PM (fLVGo)

He doesn't sell generally. Basis adjustment doesn't really come into play unless he dies, and I think they might be getting rid of that and also he had workarounds in place regardless.

335 My personal favorite RNG is actually deceptively simple. It's just photons travelling through a semi-transparent mirror. The photon will either reflect or transmit because physics, baby. If the receiver doesn't receive the transmission, that's a zero. If it does, that's a one.

Viola, a verifiable system that acts as a lovely source of random numbers. Just size the bit count according to the min/max values you want for your application.

336 Then we can talk about transparency and honesty and how voters are being disposessed. Basically, tell them Fuck You - Count Them or WAR.

How about the military ballots from the 200,000 U.S. military personnel fighting in the Ukraine War of Liberation and the 400,000 fighting in the War of the South China Sea in 2024?

Will those votes be counted?

Spoiler alert: the endgame of the "electric vehicle revolution" is NOT the same number of people driving around, except using EVs instead of gas-fueled cars. The endgame is sharply restricting or eliminating personal transportation for the middle and lower classes.

345 The GOP died at the national level during that period. It likely had been controlled opposition since at least the second Clinton term, but it wasn't so obvious then. To circle back to ace's post here, the IRS is about to deploy 84,000 freaking armed auditors to go after small fry and McCarthy only will do a few show boats and McConnell won't even do that much. Expect a lot of "we can't shut the government down blather" the next two years. It's who they are.

Probably Bush I / Clinton and no new taxes revoked was the start to wipe out the Reagan revolution. It was a setback when Billy got in pecker trouble and had to play Reagan Republican better than Bush did to stay in power, but good for the country. The response was to buy into China and gut domestic industry under the table.

Don't be surprised that a lot of voters sit at home though and you lose by a landslide. Neither party offers much to the common voter anymore but the Dems go ahead and create ballots for them anyway so it is no longer a problem for them plus the FSA votes for whoever keeps the gravy flowing.

The GOPe spends its time demoralizing its own voters such as the odious Marriage Bill passed with plenty of GOPers signing on to fuck their own religious faith supporters. They will then turn around and fundraise off because the Biden administration and lawfare go after every institution of religious faith with lawsuits.

Death of the phoney GOP and its erstwhile white bread, light in the loafers, and fraudsters, is always an option. The Whig party for example died over the slavery issue. It appears that GOPe is ready to do the same with the GOP by allowing WEF types to enslave and kill its own voters.

That helps, but given a seed the sequence is 100 percent deterministic while having a distribution like a random one.

351 One other thing I'll add, I don't think it's a coincidence that Rufo & Walsh were out completely mischaracterizing that Iger interview as "Disney capitulating to DeSantis" just days before this report about DeSantis backing down emerges.

Seems clear like it was an effort by Pushaw/Redfern to try and get ahead of the impending DeSantis backs down story.

362 A veteran and Paralympian tried for five years to get a wheelchair ramp installed at her home. She had TWO case workers assisting her, but they retired.

Some evil government drone responded to one of her requests by offering the retired Cpl medically assisted suicide. They said, "If it's too difficult for you to continue living, we can off you medical aid in dying."

This is "the public option" so many leftists in America are desperate for here.
