As the American Press focuses on events outside the U.S. doing their best, but not succeeding where the administration is flooding our nation with Illegals. They are succeeding where the IRS is concerned.
Now IRS Reports EVEN MORE Computer Crashes, Doesn’t Know If Emails Still Exist
IRS Deputy Associate Chief Counsel Thomas Kane said in transcribed congressional testimony that more IRS officials experienced computer crashes, bringing the total number of crash victims to “less than 20,” and also said that the agency does not know if the lost emails are still backed up somewhere.
The new round of computer crash victims includes David Fish, who routinely corresponded with Lois Lerner, as well as Lerner subordinate Andy Megosh, Lerner’s technical adviser Justin Lowe, and Cincinnati-based agent Kimberly Kitchens.

“You stated at the time that document was produced to Congress, the document, the white paper in Exhibit 3[the June 13 memo], that it was accurate to the best of your knowledge. Is it still accurate?,” a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee investigator asked Kane.
“There is an issue as to whether or not there is a ‑‑ that all of the backup recovery tapes were destroyed on the 6‑month retention schedule,” Kane replied.
“So some of those backup tapes may still exist?,” the investigator asked.
“I don’t know whether they are or they aren’t, but it’s an issue that’s being looked at,” Kane said.

Seen this one? It’s a fab hoax by the Pallywood crew and lapped up across the globe by those who loath Israel.

Oh no – those poor Palestinian Arabs don’t have a home to call their own because their land has been taken by wicked Jooos.

Can you imagine the OUTCRY in the West if 20,000 muslims had been sold into slavery by Christians? But when it’s the other way…SILENCE.
Muslims in Pakistan have taken 20,000 Christian families, and have forced all of them into a major, and quite underground, life of Islamic slavery. The Muslims have put them to work making bricks in brick kiln, under horrid conditions completely void of the comforts of modern convenience. Christian slaves “sometimes have to go for days without food”, they cannot attend church services, and they cannot live in freedom. They are forever living in bondage, perpetually yoked under the Muslim slave master, continuously tormented, tortured, and forced under the fetters of sadistic devils.
The truth seems to be that when Muslims are in a society where they are a minority, they agitate for minority rights. When Muslims are the majority in a society, there are no minority rights. The lack of interest in the “international community” to the atrocious treatment of minorities in muslims countries is telling.

First, remember this from last week?
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency “strongly condemned” the placement of Hamas rockets in the UNRWA school.
Well done you might say. OK, they wouldn’t allow Israel to PHOTOGRAPH the 20 rockets found as that would be kinda embarrassing but they did at least condemn Hamas for using a SCHOOL in this way.
However, guess what?
Channel 2 reports Sunday that – rather than destroying the rockets – UNRWA workers called Hamas to come remove them.
In other words, the UN has handed rockets back to Hamas that can then be used to try and kill innocent Israelis.
This is the UN in action

Here’s hoping that an enlarged hard-copy of this article by Owen Paterson, the now former Environment Secretary is securely fixed in a prominent position in No. 10 Downing Street’s Cabinet Room.
Of course, it would never happen, as the present occupant of No. 10, besides thinking that sacking good politicians and replacing them with allegedly-well-dressed women will ensure his own re-election as Tory leader and Prime Minister; has his own reasons for the sacking of this hugely-popular politician, whose crimes, as far as I can tell, are to stand up to so-called environmental pressure groups, chop the lunatic policies of the bent quango-crat Chris Smith regarding not dredging rivers which have been dredged for decades; and instigate the cull of disease-ridden badgers so that our dairy herds may live free of tuberculosis.

Some fool this morning, on these very pages, wildly speculated that the seperatists who (probably) brought down MH 17 with a BUK missile, may have captured it from Ukraine’s military. I can only assume he thought it possible because Ukraine does operate the BUK system and the seperatists have had successes in their war.
It turns out he might have been onto something.
Via Richard North, we find out from Dellers that in late June, Russian media reported that the seperatists overran a Ukrainian anti-aircraft military installation, capturing maybe a dozen BUK batteries and more than 100 missiles. If true, it makes the accusation that Moscow supplied the battery used to bring down MH 17 much harder to stand up.
I recommend the North piece, because we learn a few other details which might contradict things we’ve been told. Among those other things is the idea that the BUK platform is a sophisticated system which requires highly trained operators. I never believed that. Like the famous AK-47 rifle, Soviet/Russian military hardware is usually somewhat crude, but hardwearing and straightforward. This is because it has to be operated in wildly diverse terrains and climatic conditions by conscripts in the field.
I’ve struggled to see what these hysterical accusations against Putin are designed to achieve, apart from delegitimising the Moscow government and paving the way for eventual conflict with Russia, which would be catastophic. If the seperatists do have so many SAM missiles then maybe Western governments should be working with him to get them out of their hands.

James Garner of ‘The Rockford Files’ dead at 86
He was Bret Maverick, a cardsharp and ladies man who got by on his wits instead of a six-gun and would just as soon duck a fight as face a showdown. Co-star Jack Kelly played his more straight-laced brother, Bart.
Garner left the ABC show in 1960 in a contract dispute with producers but brought his ““Maverick”-like alter ego to a series of films, including ““Thrill of It All,” ““Move Over, Darling,” “”The Great Escape” and “”Support Your Local Sheriff!”
He ended up scoring his next big hit on the small screen in the 1970s, starring as canny private detective Jim Rockford, a wrongly accused ex-convict starting life over in a beachfront trailer home, on “”The Rockford Files”.
The show ran on NBC from 1974 until Garner abruptly quit the series in 1980.
I was a big fan of Garner, never missed the Rockford Files and Support your Local Sheriff was a blast. He played everything from cowboys, a conman to an astronaut.
Here is a clip that I think will hit a nerve with everyone.
Rest in Peace Jimmy, and thanks for the memories.
