Apple, Inc. vs. IRS Tea Party Scandal
Posted by madjillmom on February 3, 2014
I was catching up on some WSJ this weekend and read a short article about the Justice Department Monitor assigned to Apple. If you are not in the know about this, Apple was assigned a monitor by the Justice Department for possible wrong doing in colluding to fix prices of e-books. There have been quite a few editorials on the wide ranging fishing that this Apple monitor is doing. The monitor is said to be throwing his weight around, investigating lots of stuff that isn’t in his prevue or mission. Thus, Apple has asked that the monitor be put under their control because the monitor is expanding messing where he shouldn’t be. So, the Justice Department has told them that they cannot put the monitor under Apple’s control because that would be a big conflict of interest. They can’t control the monitor because the monitor can’t work for Apple, he must be independent.
Ok, that makes sense. If Apple needs a monitor, the monitor should not be on Apple’s payroll, or the investigation is tainted.
Ok, now to the IRS Tea Party Scandal. Atty. General Eric Holder says there is no conflict of interest in putting a big Obama supporter, Barbara Bosserman, in change of the investigation. No conflict of interest there at all. No problem. Further, the WSJ has reported that there will be no indictments on this scandal. And, last night, Pres. Obama told Bill O’Reilly there is no “smidgen of corruption” in the IRS Scandal. How does the President know this? Is the investigation over? Is someone giving Obama inside information about the investigation? They haven’t even interviewed the victims of the IRS political bias. The 150 plus visits by the head of the IRS (the husband of a huge Democratic Activist) at the White House have not been explained. The Justice Department has put a person with a big political bias, in Obama’s favor, in charge of an investigation into the political bias of the IRS, once again in favor of Obama. And Obama tells us to trust him when he says there is no scandal there, only the bias of Fox News.
This Justice Department is a joke.
