“Who ordered the targeting of conservative groups?”

The big question in the IRS scandal is “Who ordered the targeting of conservative groups?”

A former Justice Department lawyer who served in the Voting Rights Section has a strong suspicion. In his PJ Media column, J. Christian Adams suggests the FBI take a close look at former White House Counsel Robert Bauer.

Adams builds his case by showing how Bauer had the motive, the means and the opportunity.

He begins by noting, “Robert Bauer had the motive to direct IRS policy against tea-party groups. He is a longtime opponent of First Amendment freedoms and an advocate of government-speech regulation. He also can’t stand the work the tea party is conducting to monitor and eradicate voter fraud.”

Adams says just two months after Bauer became White House counsel, the Supreme Court decision in Citizens United vs. FEC caused the Obama camp to fear “the decision might cost them the White House. President Obama boorishly (and inaccurately) addressed the decision in the 2010 State of the Union.”

As for the means, “Remember, Bauer served as White House counsel from November 2009 to June 2011, right during the time this IRS shakedown was hatched.”

Adams said that is particularly important because, “[T]he White House counsel enjoys a position of power like few others. They can make things happen with a phone call. One former West Wing staffer told me that ‘any department’s staff who received directions from Bauer would think they were getting directions from the president. The White House counsel has the power to make policy with a phone call.’”

Bauer’s position gave him the opportunity to renew his feud with tea-party groups, according to Adams.

The Tyranny of Barack Obama’s Department of Justice: Targeting Jews, Aaron Swartz

Aaron Swartz, 26-year-old genius, computer prodigy, co-creator of RSS and Reddit, is dead.

Swartz committed suicide in the wake of relentless bullying and persecution/prosecution by Eric Holder’s Department of Justice. Swartz was “driven to the edge” by the government’s aggressive prosecution of a non-existent legal case. Swartz made public documents available to everyone — this was his crime. “It’s like trying to put someone in jail for allegedly checking too many books out of the library.”

Put this in context. Obama’s DoJ, headed by Eric Holder, refused to prosecute thr Black Panthers who violently threatened voters with billy clubs and night sticks at polling places on election day. The case was dropped, despite the fact that the case “was already won.” This was so gross a violation of voters’ rights and the proper function of the Department of Justice that one of its best and brightest senior lawyers resigned in protest: J. Christian Adams.

Obama’s Department of Justice policy is that “no voter intimidation cases will brought against a black defendant where the victim is white.”

Obama’s pro-jihad Department of Justice refused to prosecute Muslim Brotherhood groups, including Hamas-CAIR, ISNA, MSA, MSU, et al, despite the “mountain of evidence” entered into evidence in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history. Documents linked these groups to the funding of terror and murder of non-Muslims, and conspiring toward “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.”

Obama’s pro-sharia Department of Justice department is pursuing cases against cities and towns to enforce sharia in the schools, prisons, and workplace. Obama’s Department of Sharia filed an unusual lawsuit against the school system in December 2010, not to ensure that the kids get a good education, mind you, but more importantly, to ensure that the Muslims get special rights and extraordinary accommodation.

The DOJ is creating Muslim majority legislative districts by converting a religious class into a racial one.

The DOJ’s Holder sued a New Jersey county demanding that a correction facility accommodate a Muslim employee’s khimar, a religious head covering.

Further, Obama’s Department of Justice dropped the “charges” against the Muslims who blew up the USS Cole.

But Obama’s Department of Justice is targeting Jews for prosecution of non-existent crimes. The lawless, immoral, and unjust Department of Justice went after an innovator, creator, inventor …… Jew.
