Dirtbags At IRS Fail To Inform 1M Taxpayers That Illegal Aliens Stole Their Social Security Numbers – Washington Times

The IRS has discovered more than 1 million Americans whose Social Security numbers were stolen by illegal immigrants, but officials never bothered to tell the taxpayers themselves, the agency’s inspector general said in a withering new report released Tuesday.

Investigators first alerted the IRS to the problem five years ago, but it’s still not fixed, the inspector general said, and a pilot program meant to test a solution was canceled – and fell woefully short anyway.

As a result, most taxpayers don’t learn that their identities have been stolen and their Social Security files may be screwed up.

“Taxpayers identified as victims of employment-related identity theft are not notified,” the inspector general said.

The report alarmed lawmakers on Capitol Hill, who were shocked that the IRS had gone for so long without fixing the issue.

“It is stunning that the IRS has chosen to aid and abet identity thieves for so long instead of protecting the innocent victims of the theft,” said Sen. Daniel Coats, Indiana Republican.

Victims’ numbers are stolen by illegal immigrants who need to give employers a valid Social Security number in order to get a job. Employers are prohibited from probing too deeply into numbers, even when they suspect fraud.

But the IRS learns of the scam when the illegal immigrants file their taxes using a special Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) the agency doles out chiefly to illegal immigrants as a way of making sure they’re paying taxes even if they’re not supposed to be in the U.S…

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio Easily Wins GOP Primary – Arizona Daily Star
.

.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio trounced three rivals Tuesday to win his Republican primary in what could be the toughest campaign in his 24 years in office as he faces a storm of legal troubles stemming from his immigration patrols.

Arpaio easily beat former Buckeye Police Chief Dan Saban and two lesser-known Republicans. Arpaio has raised a staggering amount of money for a local sheriff’s race – $11.3 million and counting, most from people living in other states.

The 84-year-old lawman moves on to face the race’s sole Democrat, retired Phoenix police Officer Paul Penzone, in the Nov. 8 general election.

Arpaio is seeking a seventh term as he experiences the worst legal troubles in his career…

Useless RINO McCain Beats Ward In Republican Senate Primary – Arizona Republic

Veteran U.S. Sen. John McCain appeared to have once again beat back an insurrection from the Republican Party’s right wing as he held a comfortable lead over his GOP primary foes Kelli Ward and Clair Van Steenwyk.

The Associated Press called the race for McCain shortly after 8:30 p.m., soon after the results of early voting were unveiled.

McCain, R-Ariz., who is seeking a sixth, six-year Senate term, had been targeted for defeat by conservatives who deem him too liberal on issues such as immigration reform and gun control. But as he did in his 2010 GOP primary, McCain on Tuesday appeared to be outpacing his opponents on the right, leading Ward by a wide margin among early votes in the most-populous Maricopa County.

McCain will face U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, D-Ariz., who was unopposed for her party’s Senate nomination, in the Nov. 8 general election.

McCain sounded hoarse as he addressed a crowd of about 200 supporters at his central Phoenix campaign headquarters shortly before 9 p.m. He was flanked by his wife, Cindy, and by junior U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake and his wife, Cheryl Flake.

McCain thanked both those who voted for him and those who voted against him.

“To the former, your support is a privilege I promise to work as hard as I can to deserve,” McCain said. “To the latter, I promise to work as hard as I can for you, too, and to fight for policies and principles that I believe are essential to building a better future for Arizona, and America, and making the world safer for our shared values.”…

Trump Agrees To Meet In Mexico With President Nieto – The Hill
.

.
Donald Trump says he will meet with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto on Wednesday, hours ahead of a high-profile immigration speech the GOP nominee is scheduled to give in Arizona.

The official Twitter account of the president of Mexico appeared to confirm the report, tweeting shortly after Trump that the meeting would be “in private.” And Nieto tweeted from his own account that he had invited both presidential candidates to discuss the bilateral relationship.

The Washington Post first reported Tuesday night that Trump was considering the last-minute trip to Mexico City. Trump tweeted confirmation shortly before he took the stage for a rally in Washington state Tuesday night, but he did not mention the visit in his remarks.

Nieto invited the mogul to visit him and discuss campaign issues, unidentified sources told the Post…

VA Offers Anti-Corruption Whistleblower $305,000 To Go Away – Daily Caller

After ethics officials blocked the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) from firing a woman who refused to lie for top bosses, the bosses took a different tack: paying her $305,000 to quit and agree not to apply to the VA again.

Her bosses tried to force Rosayma Lopez to write a critical report to be used to terminate Joseph Colon, who had exposed the drunk-driving and illegal-prescription drug arrest of Dewayne Hamlin, director of the VA’s hospital in San Juan.

When Lopez said she would stick to the facts, her bosses filed the termination paperwork intended for Colon against her instead.

After she sought protection from the Office of Special Counsel (OSC), a federal agency that investigates whistleblower retaliation in government, OSC ordered VA to restore Lopez to her job. But VA refused, instead paying her to sit at home for nine months.

When OSC reiterated the demand, VA reluctantly restored her job, but then offered her $150,000 to quit and agree not to re-apply. Lopez declined the offer, which she had never requested, and made clear she just wanted to keep her job.

Lopez’s job involves processing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, so VA officials worried she could disclose embarrassing information to future requesters. She was assigned a new boss, who insisted on handling FOIA responses himself, by telling requesters they would be charged thousands or tens of thousands of dollars…

Obama’s Former Doctor: Hillary Needs Neurological Exam – WorldNetDaily
.

.
President Obama’s former doctor says Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton should have a neurological exam, indicating the checkup would ensure she isn’t losing her cognitive abilities due to her history of brain injury.

Dr. David Scheiner, Obama’s physician for 22 years, told CNN Tuesday that a two-page note Clinton provided from her doctor after follow-up testing in 2013 is simply not enough to show she’s fully recovered.

“There are a number of questions I have. First of all, she’s almost 68 years old. While I think that medical letter was well written and was very professional… it’s not enough. For example, she is on Coumadin, a medication to prevent blood clots. You have to monitor that. It says she’s being monitored regularly. I’d like to know how well she is being controlled. That’s a difficult drug to use…

President Asshat Admits 10,000 Syrian Refugees Into U.S.: This Is Where They Are Headed – Zero Hedge

Yesterday, the White House announced that the US had met President Obama’s goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees into the country; it did so ahead of schedule.

One year ago Obama had sought a sixfold increase in the number of Syrian refugees provided safe haven in the United States. After a slow start, the administration was able to hit the goal about a month early and just a few weeks before Obama convenes a summit on refugees during the 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly. He would have been hard-pressed to make the case for other countries to do more with the U.S. failing to reach a goal that amounts to about 2% of the 480,000 Syrian refugees in need of resettlement. Millions more Syrians have fled to neighboring states such as Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon and to countries in Europe since the civil war broke out in 2011.

Over 1 million Syrian refugees made their way to Germany, where the resultant social shock, and surge in violent terrorist attacks, have led to a plunge in Angela Merkel’s approval rating. That, however, has not deterred the US from seeking to admit thousands of refugees.

“On behalf of the president and his administration, I extend the warmest of welcomes to each and every one of our Syrian arrivals, as well as the many other refugees resettled this year from all over the world,” National Security Adviser Susan Rice said in a statement. More from the statement:

Less than a year ago, in response to an historic global refugee crisis, involving millions of Syrians in flight from violence and conflict, President Obama directed his Administration to increase the number of Syrian refugees provided safe haven in the United States…

John F-ing Kerry: You Media People Should Stop Reporting On Terrorism So People Don’t Know What’s Going On – Townhall
.

.
Speaking from Bangladesh Tuesday morning, Secretary of State John Kerry suggested members of the media stop covering (Islamic) terrorism so people won’t “know what’s going on.” Kerry attempted to preempt his statement by implying media coverage creates copy cats and promotes more terrorism.

“If you decide one day you’re going to be a terrorist and you’re willing to kill yourself, you can go out and kill some people. You can make some noise… perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much. People wouldn’t know what’s going on,” Kerry said.

While the copy cat, attention seeker argument may be true in a handful of cases, the media ignoring terrorism as the Obama administration has arguably chosen to do for nearly a decade, isn’t going to make terrorism go away…

Dozens Of Hillary Emails About Benghazi Found Among 15,000 She Illegally Withheld From FBI – Breitbart

The State Department says about 30 emails that may be related to the 2012 attack on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya, are among the thousands of Hillary Clinton emails recovered during the FBI’s recently closed investigation into her use of a private server.

Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta Tuesday that an undetermined number of the emails among the 30 were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton. The State Department’s lawyer said it would need until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released.

Mehta questioned why it would take so long to release so few documents, and urged that the process be sped up. He ordered the department to report to him in a week with more details about why the review process would take a full month.

The hearing was held in one of several lawsuits filed by the conservative legal group Judicial Watch, which has sued over access to government records involving the Democratic presidential nominee. The State Department has said the FBI provided it with about 14,900 emails purported not to have been among those previously released.

Clinton previously had said she withheld and deleted only personal emails not related to her duties as secretary of state. With the November election little more than two months away, Republicans are pressing for the release of as many documents related to Clinton as possible.

In a separate development Tuesday, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press that the FBI is expected to release documents soon related to its investigation, which focused on whether Clinton and her aides mishandled government secrets…

Gene Wilder, the frizzy-haired actor who brought his deft comedic touch to such unforgettable roles as the neurotic accountant in “The Producers” and the deranged animator of “Young Frankenstein,” has died. He was 83.

Wilder’s nephew said Monday that the actor and writer died late Sunday at his home in Stamford, Connecticut, from complications from Alzheimer’s disease.

Jordan Walker-Pearlman said in a statement that Wilder was diagnosed with the disease three years ago, but kept the condition private so as not to disappoint fans.

Ex-Con Uses Stolen Credit Card To Bail Friend Out Of Jail – Smoking Gun

An ex-con is facing felony charges after she used a stolen credit card to bail out a woman locked up in a Florida jail, police charge.

According to court filings, Lakeisha Brisbane, 46, used the victim’s Visa card in three separate transactions – totaling $850 – with a Clearwater bail bonds company.

Brisbane, seen at right, used the stolen credit card to bail out Shermaine Arnold, a 21-year-old female acquaintance being held in the Pinellas County lockup, cops allege.

Arnold, records show, was jailed in November for ditching out on a $62.21 Yellow Cab fare. But since she also had an outstanding warrant in connection with a felony battery case in Miami-Dade county, her bond was set at $7500.

Arnold, pictured below, spent a week in custody before Brisbane went into 49th Street Bail Bonds carrying a credit card “issued in the name of elderly male victim,” a criminal complaint charges. Brisbane signed several sales receipts, a “multitude of other paperwork,” and allowed the firm to photocopy her driver’s license.

Court filings do not explain how Brisbane was allowed to make charges on a Visa card in someone else’s name.

Brisbane, who is scheduled for a court appearance today, was arrested Thursday on grand theft and credit card fraud charges, both felonies. She was released on $10,000 bond, which was posted by a second Clearwater firm, P-Freddie Dixon Bail Bonds.

In some court records, Brisbane is identified by one of her aliases, Lakeisha Best…

Huma Cuts Off Weiner Following Latest Sexting Incident – High Plains Pundit

Longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin announced that she and former US Rep. Anthony Weiner are separating after new reports surfaced that he sent sexually suggestive photos again.

Abedin released a statement on Monday morning just hours after the New York Post reported that Weiner had been sending lewd texts to another woman. This is the third time Weiner has been caught in the act in the past five years.

In the latest incident, Weiner was sent a picture bragging about his manhood in a pair of boxer briefs while the couple’s four-year-old son Jordan lay next to him in bed.

U.N. Likely To Take Control Of Internet When Obama Gives Up American Stewardship Next Month – Wall Street Journal

When the Obama administration announced its plan to give up U.S. protection of the internet, it promised the United Nations would never take control. But because of the administration’s naiveté or arrogance, U.N. control is the likely result if the U.S. gives up internet stewardship as planned at midnight on Sept. 30.

On Friday Americans for Limited Government received a response to its Freedom of Information Act request for “all records relating to legal and policy analysis… concerning antitrust issues for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers” if the U.S. gives up oversight. The administration replied it had “conducted a thorough search for responsive records within its possession and control and found no records responsive to your request.”

It’s shocking the administration admits it has no plan for how Icann retains its antitrust exemption. The reason Icann can operate the entire World Wide Web root zone is that it has the status of a legal monopolist, stemming from its contract with the Commerce Department that makes Icann an “instrumentality” of government.

Antitrust rules don’t apply to governments or organizations operating under government control. In a 1999 case, the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the monopoly on internet domains because the Commerce Department had set “explicit terms” of the contract relating to the “government’s policies regarding the proper administration” of the domain system.

Without the U.S. contract, Icann would seek to be overseen by another governmental group so as to keep its antitrust exemption. Authoritarian regimes have already proposed Icann become part of the U.N. to make it easier for them to censor the internet globally. So much for the Obama pledge that the U.S. would never be replaced by a “government-led or an inter-governmental organization solution.”…

Billionaire Clinton Foundation Donor Denied Entry Into U.S. Due To Terror Ties – Daily Caller
.

Nigerian-Lebanese billionaire Gilbert Chagoury continues to be a thorn in the side of Hillary Clinton.

The multi-million dollar Clinton Foundation donor was denied entry into the U.S. last year because of his ties to a Lebanese organization that has allegedly given money to the terrorist group Hezbollah, The Los Angeles Times reports.

The news, which was based on interviews and government documents, comes weeks after emails surfaced showing that in 2009, a Clinton Foundation adviser asked Hillary Clinton’s State Department deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin, for a favor on Chagoury’s behalf.

The request for favors is evidence that the Clinton Foundation operates as a massive pay-for-play scheme, the Clintons’ critics have claimed…

2 Killed, 36 Injured After Illegal Alien Drives Bus Into Fire Truck – Breitbart

A bus full of construction workers hit a firetruck on an elevated highway Sunday, killing two people and injuring 36, several of them seriously, Louisiana State Police said.

The ladder truck from St. John the Baptist Parish, west of New Orleans, had parked across the right lane of Interstate 10 to block traffic while police investigated an earlier wreck involving a pickup truck that had skidded on the wet road, crashing into both guardrails about 6:40 a.m., Trooper Melissa Matey said.

The 2002 Eldorado National party bus hit the fire truck and then rear-ended a 2012 Toyota Camry, pushing it into a flatbed trailer being towed by a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado, Matey said. She said the bus then veered behind the fire truck and into the first pickup truck, a 2005 Nissan Titan. It also knocked three firefighters, who were standing near the guard rail, into the water 30 to 40 feet below.

Matey said the wreck killed Jermaine Starr, 21, of Moss Point, Mississippi, a back-seat passenger in the Camry, and St. John the Baptist Parish district Fire Chief Spencer Chauvin. The injured included the other two firefighters, the bus driver, 24 bus passengers and a total of nine people in the car and pickups.

Firefighter Nicholas Saale, 32, of Ponchatoula, and Camry passenger Vontravous Kelly of Moss Point, Mississippi, are in critical condition, she said. The Camry’s other two occupants, driver Marcus Tate, 35, and David Jones, both of Moss Point, are in serious condition.

Other injuries – including the Titan’s two occupants, who suffered minor injuries in the original crash – ranged from minor to moderate, Matey said…
