Conservatives find some wins in $1.1 trillion bill

Cut to IRS, curbs on Gitmo transfers, Obamacare transparency

Published: 10 hours ago

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., are falling into hot water with their party's conservative base.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

NEW YORK –Tea party loyalists and fiscal conservatives have criticized House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for conceding to Democrat desires and passing a $1.1 trillion spending bill during the lame-duck Congress known as “CRomnibus.”

While the indignation expresses frustration that establishment GOP politicians in Washington are too cozy with big-government liberal Democrats, the bill – a combination of a continuing resolution to fund the government for a period of time and an “omnibus” funding bill – did offer some conservative victories, including limiting funding for the scandal-ridden IRS.

Even though the spending topped the $1 trillion threshold, the CRomnibus was still consistent with the Ryan-Murray Agreement’s caps of $521 billion for defense and $492 billion for non-defense spending.

H.R. 83 fully funded 11 of the 12 regular appropriations bills through Sept. 30, 2015. Funding for the Department of Homeland Security was provided under a continuing resolution that expires Feb. 27, 2015.

That means a debate in the new Republican-controlled Congress over President Obama’s memoranda-issued amnesty “executive action” is almost certain to happen.

Highlights

Circulating in GOP circles in Washington, D.C., was a memo that highlighted little-known features of H.R. 83.

The bill accomplishes the following:

  • Fully funds U.S. troops’ pay raise that was authorized in the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
  • Includes $94 billion for new equipment and upgrades of attack submarines, EA-18G Growlers, KC-46 Tankers, F-35 JSF and 3 Littoral Combat Ships
  • Gives $5.4 billion to fight Ebola in the U.S. and abroad; an amount below the president’s request
  • Provides $64 billion in Overseas Contingency Operations funding for troops, to combat ISIS, train and equip Iraqi allies and provide support for Ukraine.
  • Prohibits the transfer or release of Guantanamo detainees into the U.S.
  • No new funding for Obamacare
  • Prohibits funds for Obamacare Risk Corridors
  • Requires Health and Human Services and Treasury to report to Congress on improper payments of Obamacare tax subsidies
  • Cuts the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) by $10 million
  • Maintains all existing pro-life policy and funding provisions
  • Hyde Amendment, Tiahrt Amendment, Helms Amendment and Kemp-Kasten Amendment, bans public funding for abortions in the District of Columbia, within Federal Employees Health Benefits Program and federal prisoners
  • Three new pro-life provisions:
    • Obamacare transparency – requires Obamacare plans to tell customers if they provide abortion services
    • Conscience protection – requires HHS Office of Civil Rights to address complaints of violations
    • Provides $12 million in unused abstinence education funds
  • Cuts Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) $60 million. It’s the fifth consecutive year of cuts, totaling a 21 percent reduction since FY 2010 and a decrease in 2,000 positions to 1989 levels
  • Prohibits regulation of farm ponds and irrigation ditches
  • Prohibits listing the sage grouse on the Endangered Species List
  • Protects Second Amendment rights and prohibits EPA regulation of lead content in ammunition or fishing tackle
  • Amends Dodd-Frank, swapping push-out requirements to protect farmers and other commodity producers
  • Cuts IRS funding $345.6 million, which is $1.5 billion below the president’s request and below FY 2008 levels.
  • Prohibits IRS targeting organizations based on their ideological beliefs or for exercising their First Amendment rights
  • Prohibits the White House ordering review of tax-exempt status
  • Prohibits IRS funds for inappropriate videos and conferences
  • Prohibits local and federal funds to implement legalization of recreational marijuana use in D.C.
  • Prohibits requiring businesses to disclose political contributions
  • Fully funds the U.S.-Israel Memorandum of Understanding at $3.1 billion
  • Prohibits funds for the Palestinian Authority if it unilaterally seeks membership at the U.N. and does not counter incitement of violence
  • Requires the Obama administration to keep Congress informed on Iran nuclear negotiations
  • No funds for the International Monetary Fund
  • Prohibits funds for Green Climate Fund
  • Provides flexibility for the administration’s school-lunch regulations
  • Fully funds Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) in the Department of the Interior at $442 million, including funds authorized in FY 2014 NDAA)
  • Prevents new fees on onshore oil and gas producers
  • Stops National Labor Relations Board’s regulations related to e-Card Check
  • No funds for high-speed rail
  • Cuts AMTRAK by $90 million
  • Protects small business from overregulation related to commercial trucking, weight limits, driver hours and hazmat permitting
  • Provides $2.5 billion for processing Veterans Administration (VA) disability claims to end the backlog and rescinds $41 million in performance bonuses at the VA

Republican legislators also sought to use H.R. 83 to advance conservative goals in the broad expanse of the nation between the West Coast and the Mississippi that is not dominated by big-city liberals.

Consider the following measures passed in the CRomnibus:

Grazing and Public Lands

Directive Language

Environmental Protection Agency

Wildfire Fighting and Prevention

More…

Word of the Lord For 2015: You Will Overcome Your Battles By His Grace

Phyllis Ford, Arlington, TX                                            Dec  17 2014
Word of the Lord For 2015: You Will Overcome Your Battles By His Grace

This is the year where the glory of God will bring us into new levels of victory – victories in battle as God moves in, among, and for His people. There will be overcoming battles by His grace and His glory as the Kingdom of God expands and advances in ways only God could bring forth now.
Are You Asking, “WHY?” Here Are Some Encouraging Prophetic Insights For YOU
As many of us enter into this New Year, we will find ourselves transitioning into the place God has called for us to be. So much ground has been covered, and what we perceived to be lost has truly been gained.
As the Lord has begun showing me glimpses into 2015, He released to me Biblical downloads with answers unveiling several types and shadows.  These prophetic signposts indicate patterns that will help us proceed on our journey forward.
Let me greatly encourage you by saying you have not been waiting in vain. Nor are you standing still while in pursuit of all that God is preparing for you. But, it is time to be clear as to why things have occurred the way they have. Many have already moved into a new place in the Lord. However, while advancing, some didn’t understand what was going on in the midst of heavy levels of warfare. For as they passed over from one phase to another, the intimidating demonic resistance tried to deceive them and get them to give up what they had already received.
Now is the time to stand; not in a place where what God said to us can be tossed about by uncertainty and outside influences, but we must stand in the knowing. The knowing is a place where the opinions of others and even ourselves has no power to affect our stance on the promises of God, because they are now knowledge and truth instead of theories and possibilities. It’s time for us to know what God is saying and to remember the manner in which God is saying it. Observing with discerning eyes what is going on around us must be the order of the day. Proceed knowing that your very movements at this time carries a strength that you have not previously experienced.
While we were trying to conquer challenges during 2014, it came to our attention that there were issues that needed to be resolved. We needed to receive emotional healing, which included the need to forgive and release things that we could not even understand. But as we came to grips with our weaknesses, the Lord revealed to us hidden strengths. Working through those experiences caused us to come to the end of ourselves, and now He has turned our mourning into dancing!
As we cry out before the Lord with hearts of repentance, we will make great strides. As we embrace the truth of Jesus Christ, having passion for the things of God, we find the strength to dismantle feelings of complacency and battle weariness. The reality is that we shall be a people that the Lord is establishing now.
Those with the greatest passion will be on the front lines, but know that your position doesn’t exempt you from going through more of the perfecting process of grace.Those will be led by the Spirit of God if they submit to the process to grow. These are major decisions that must be determined in the hearts of God’s people. Those that say I am not a part of this because I am above this, or who say I don’t need the Lord’s help will find themselves in painful experiences until they submit willingly to God. We are approaching serious times, and the Lord is purifying His people.
For those who pressed into the things of God harder, stronger, and more determined, God pressed out of them things that were no longer needed and replaced them with spiritual strengths that will become a catalyst in the times ahead. We have become more aware of why our circumstances played out the way that they did. Things that we felt would have benefited us were sometimes withheld because if those things had been prematurely released it would have altered the course of our destiny. “Why?” Because we had no idea what was coming in 2015.
God’s Words For Your Situation
“As you look out at what lies beyond this point, you will be greeted by the image of My glory. As you enter in, you will find that every process that you passed through has brought you to the place of My grace and My glory. Now you are on the brink of seeing great things fulfilled before you. Pick up from here, for there is much to be accomplished, and you will marvel as the Kingdom advances for it will touch and affect everything it passes over.
“New sweeps and changes are on the way. As I refine and purify My people, I will work in them, through them, and for them. Prepare yourselves, for all eyes will be upon you, and that which I have placed in you are the keys to overcoming and the wisdom to war.”
1 Peter 5:8-11 (KJV) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Peter 5:8-11 The Message Translation: Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You’re not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It’s the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won’t last forever. It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ – eternal and glorious plans they are! – will have you put together and on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes, He does.
One of my first downloads from the Lord on the new year was found in the Book of Esther. As we transition into 2015, we will find ourselves amongst some twists and turns. Esther best illustrates the narrative of an overcoming people who must deal with the enemies of their day. At a close glance it carries so many significant meanings and subplots involving the greatest achievements in its teaching. All of this is a backdrop of Kingdom building. The types and shadows revealed in the Book of Esther will uncover a brilliant wisdom that we must walk out in order to conquer the challenges ahead.
The Lord said to me there will be great victories we will experience as we deal with the enemy within us, the enemy within the Kingdom, and the enemy at the gate. For the sake of discussion, we will call these levels one, two, and three.
Dealing With the Enemy Within Us – Level 1
As individuals of the Kingdom we must go through the process of growth and maturity. In our realization we see that through necessary change we will come out of old mindsets and religious concepts. We will be challenged to remove old habits, attitudes, and behavior that we have allowed to remain which have kept us from progressing. We will see ourselves in how we deal with others and the adjustments we need to make. This will mark a time where we will deal with these issues, or else future consequences of those issues will begin to be more visible. The truth and the revelation that will be presented to us by the Lord will purge us. This is an Esther purification, and a true revival will be the result of it in the midst of true repentance.
There will be those who the Lord is raising up with words of resolve, healing, and deliverance that will ignite the hearts of the people to desire higher levels of teaching with greater levels of anointing. The old ways must be removed in order to grow and mature. The glory of the Lord moving forward at increased levels will sweep over our lives for good. This is another level of grace that will be strong in this hour.
More grace = more glory. The power to overcome will be real and tangible in worship, in prayer, and in times of crying out.A boldness will rise up in the truth of God’s love and will birth forth those who are ready to move forward. This is where family and personal relationships will be restored. Many strongholds will be removed, with generational curses broken.
Dealing With the Enemy In the Kingdom – Level 2
Level two deals with the Kingdom. It is where we pick up our spiritual responsibility and our accountability in areas of leadership and servitude. It is the place where we offer our service to others while walking out God’s plans and purposes according to His standard.
In the Book of Esther, Haman was an enemy to the people of God. Despite his position, he set off in his agenda to destroy God’s people. Haman began manipulating his position to make God’s chosen people appear to be the enemy, when in reality he was the actual enemy. He was an enemy to the kingdom, to the king, and to God’s people. In 2015 we will see an “Esther people” come forth to uncover the Hamans of today including some who are within the Church.
There will emerge an apostolic strength with a prophetic anointing that will impact the future and bring the current reality into apostolic order with God’s prophetic vision for the Church. More outreach efforts will be realized because the emphasis will focus on unity and compassion for the less fortunate. The need to touch those outside the walls of the Church will spread like a revival fire fanned by the moves of evangelism.
Angelic assistance will shift Church atmospheres. Watch for changes within leadership that will begin to happen in house groups, prayer groups, and within the local churches. The Lord said clearly that the move that we see will not be focused on individuals but corporately ushered in by those who are hungry and willing to be conduits of His life. There will be a strong corporate anointing with power amongst the team.
In 2015, there will be great mysteries that will unlock the significance of the Jewish heritage and within it provide specific strategies to overcome specific enemies of this day. The time from the feast of Purim to Passover will be remembered by many as the greatest time of 2015. In this New Year, history will be marked with highly significant events.
Dealing With the Enemy at the Gate – Level 3
Level three is concerning the gates. In Esther’s time, at the city gates of the kingdom, the elders sat positioned. Business transactions were made, and various judicial rulings and public announcements were discussed and decreed. The gate was also where the two servants plotted to kill the king, but Mordecai overheard it and informed Esther of the plan (see Esther 2
At this level that which happens at the gate carries the power to impact the community from various levels in government. Social unrest and many other things can be traced back to the gate where key decisions were made and key events took place. As the people of God change (Level 1) and the Kingdom moves forward as one voice (Level 2), we will see it impact our communities (Level 3).
From the gates of the city to the gates of nations troubled by economic woes and violence, there are clear indications that many enemies have positioned themselves at gates – from the local and national gates. The Lord Himself will begin to shake these gates. The convergence of people declaring righteousness will conflict with the enemies of our day. We will have to deal with the gate enemies of poverty to the gate enemies of abortion. These things will be changed by a people transformed, by the Spirit of God, and a Kingdom empowered.
When we become changed at level one we will affect level two, and ultimately the effects of each level will affect each other. This is the time where the people of God will begin to understand that we must become an answer to these pressing issues and not a part of the problem. Prayer, worship, and evangelism will affect the gates as well, but it will be by His grace and glory that regions will be shifted.
The Company of One – Operating Out of a Divine Synergy For a Greater Effect
The Lord began to talk to me about the rising up of a company of leaders who would share revelation knowledge and release strategies in various methods and modes for the training and preparation of an end-time army. This end-time army will consist of various tribes gathered together carrying various expertise, giftings, and anointings with the power to destroy evil principalities that have not yet been conquered.
Those who are of one heart, onespirit, and of one mind will come forth to battle in heavenly realms in 2015. I asked the Lord what the one stood for; His answer was, “I am the One.” And He is gathering one people who will walk in a divine synergy. Synergy means with the interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual efforts. This company will move in levels of synergy with God and one another to accomplish impossible things, and the glory of God will be heavy in the midst of them.
Ephesians 4:4-8 There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all. But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore it says, “When He ascended on high, He led captive a host of captives, and He gave gifts to men.”

TARRANT, Alabama – Helen Johnson stared in amazement at the piles of food accumulating in her small Tarrant apartment on Wednesday.
“The last time I saw my house this full, I was 12-years-old and staying with my grandmother,” said the 47-year-old mother and grandmother. “I’ve been crying all day.”
On Wednesday, Tarrant police delivered two truckloads of groceries to the woman, who on Saturday was caught stealing five eggs from the nearby Dollar General. Instead of arresting Johnson, Tarrant Police Officer William Stacy bought her a carton of eggs and sent her home with the promise to never shoplift again.
That in itself, Johnson said, was a blessing. But those blessings now seem to have taken on a life of their own. Tarrant police said they’ve received calls from across the United States and world since hearing of Johnson’s plight. People have offered food, money and clothing.
It’s been so overwhelming, said Tarrant Police Chief Dennis Reno, he had to bring in a second police dispatcher to handle the volume of calls. Police officials today also set up a fund at People’s First Federal Credit Union on Ford Avenue in Tarrant to benefit the Johnson family.

Tarrant Police Deliver Food to Grandmother Caught Stealing EggsTarrant Police officer delivered food to Helen Johnson, the grandmother caught stealing eggs at a Dollar General on Monday. Officer William Stacy responded to the scene and bought Johnson the eggs rather than arresting her. The act of kindness was caught on video and has become a viral sensation.

“It’s growing and growing and growing,” Reno said. ” A guy called me from New York and just broke down. He said for two months he’s been angry with police, and he said this has totally changed his mind.”
A food bank from Memphis is set to arrive in Tarrant this evening. “This woman’s getting plenty of food,” the chief said. “She shouldn’t be hungry for a while.”
What a difference a week makes. Johnson’s two daughters, a niece and two grandchildren, ages 1 and 3, live with her in their Tarrant home. The kids’ mother gets a welfare check – $120 a month – but that check was lost in the mail. Johnson herself gets a disability check, which is set to come this week.
By Saturday, the family had gone two days without food. Johnson went to Dollar General on Pinson Valley Parkway with $1.25 and thought that would be enough to buy a carton of eggs. When she realized she was 50 cents plus tax short, she stuffed five eggs in her pocket out of desperation.
She didn’t get far.  “Of course when I put them in my jacket pocket they broke,” Johnson said in an earlier interview. “I’m not a good thief at all.”
A store worker stopped Johnson and asked her if she had taken the eggs. She said she did, and they said they had already called the police.
By the time she got to the door, Tarrant police Officer William Stacy was there, and told her to stay put. The officer said he’d already talked to Dollar General officials and they said they weren’t going to press charges.
Johnson didn’t know that, and said she was waiting for him to bring out the handcuffs. Instead, he went into the store and came back out with a carton of eggs. “She started crying, she got very emotional and was very apologetic,” Stacy said. “She tried to give me the money she had on her, $1.25.”
Johnson said she was stunned. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, thank you Jesus for this man,”’ she said. “He is my hero.”
Stacy said he can remember times growing up when his mother had trouble finding ways to feed him and his sister. He had been on a call to Johnson’s house once before, and had gotten a glimpse of the living conditions. The furnishings are sparse, and the family sleeps on mattresses on the floor.
“The story she told me Saturday matched up with what I had seen when I was there,” he said. “I felt like it was the right thing to do. I didn’t want to pass judgment on her.”
She asked how she could repay him, and he told her to not shoplift again. “Sometimes the best route is to not arrest,” Stacy said. “I hope she won’t do it again. I pray she doesn’t, and I don’t think she will.”
Johnson asked Stacy if she could hug him, and he said yes. Unbeknownst to both of them, a man named Robert “Dollar” Tripp filmed the scene on his cell phone and later posted it on his Facebook with the hashtag “feelgoodstoryoftheday.”
The story went viral. On Tuesday, Tarrant police showed up at her home. “I was shook and so scared,” she said. “I thought it was about the eggs. My grandbaby said, ‘Are you going to jail?’ and I said I hoped not.”
Instead, Tarrant police took Johnson to headquarters, where they signed her up for the annual Tarrant Toy Drive, and also are helping to coordinate the offers of food and clothing also pouring in, said Tarrant police Sgt. Larry Rice.
On Wednesday, Stacy and Officer Jay Jenkins took two loads of food to Johnson’s apartment. She couldn’t stop crying, and she couldn’t stop hugging Stacy. “I just busted out and started hollering,” Johnson said of all the food delivered to her home. “I was yelling so loud. I would have been a good cheerleader.”
With help from a nearby church, Johnson spent much of Wednesday reorganizing her kitchen cabinets to make room for all the food. The family, who by Tuesday was down to one slice of bread, had their pick of what to eat.
So what did they eat? “Cereal,” she said. “That’s our favorite.”
Her grandchildren were also happy to see the officers at their apartment. “You back?” said 3-year-old Tamarose, as she grabbed various cans of food to show the family.
Asked what she would do if someone else in need asked her for a slice of bread, she said, “I would give them the whole loaf. And then I would give them Officer Stacy’s number.”
Johnson said her life is forever changed because of the actions of Stacy and the Tarrant Police Department. “My heart,” she said, “is wide open right now.”
Anyone who wants to make a donation to Johnson can do so at People’s First Federal Credit Union. Checks should be made payable to the Tarrant Police Charity Fund c/o the Johnson Family. Checks can be mailed to the bank at 1140 Ford Avenue, Tarrant, Alabama 35217.

 

Hong Kong Banks Shut Down US Accounts Rather Than Deal with FATCA

Subj: HONG KONG BANKS SHUT DOWN US ACCOUNTS RATHER THAT DEAL WITH FATCA
 HI,

Hong Kong Banks Shut Down US Accounts Rather Than Deal with FATCA

Posted on December 18, 2014 by China Briefing  By Benedict Lynn

Due to its geographical proximity to the mainland, modern and (until now) friendly banking system and transparent legal regime, Hong Kong has long served as a popular gateway into China for foreign businesses. Americans in particular have favored the former British colony, which retains its widespread use of the English language and Western business ideals, as a launching pad for their operations into mainland China.

However, since the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) came into effect in early July, many Hong Kong based banks have been refusing to open new accounts for, and even shutting down the existing accounts of, American individuals and corporations.

Dezan Shira & Associates have been advising several of our American clients who have found themselves in this frustrating and potentially catastrophic situation. In this article, we examine the effects of FATCA on American businesses and taxpayers operating out of Hong Kong, as well as the implications for Hong Kong’s future as a means of penetrating the Chinese market.

What is FATCA?

The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is an American law approved in 2010 that has only slowly been implemented, primarily because of its complexity and because of the necessity to negotiate the cooperation of numerous foreign countries to secure its desired global reach.

The basic idea is that banks and other financial institutions (broadly defined in the law) would be compelled to assist the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in collecting taxes from US taxpayers abroad by reporting the details of their overseas financial accounts, including naming and identifying the account holder. Failure to comply will result in a 30 percent withholding tax on all U.S. income.

Individual Americans and corporations are also required to report the details of their overseas accounts, and the IRS will then reconcile the information received in an effort to identify unreported, taxable income.

Headache for HK financial institutions

Hong Kong authorities only signed an inter-governmental agreement (IGA) with Washington in May of this year. Widespread confusion surrounding the law meant that come the first deadline for tax reporting on July 1, which incidentally kicked in as pro-democracy protesters blocked up the city’s business district, only a couple of thousand Hong Kong financial institutions, a mere fraction of the tens of thousands operating there, had registered themselves.

Now that the IGA has been signed, FATCA is as much Hong Kong law as it is American. This means that on top of the U.S. 30 percent withholding tax, these institutions are subject to further penalties from the Hong Kong authorities. The costs do not stop there. Hong Kong banks are now scrambling to find any trace of American presence in their accounts and are having to make significant process and technological changes.

One major Hong Kong bank revealed to DSA that the costs of locating, monitoring and reporting on a U.S. held or controlled account costs at least US$ 7000 a month. Our source indicated that once the costs and benefits of serving the client have been weighed up, only accounts containing some US$ three million are worth the bank’s time. In short, it is often easier and more cost efficient for Hong Kong institutions to simply shut down the accounts of, or reject applications from, American clients, rather than shouldering the costs of complying with FATCA or the penalties for not doing so.

What this means for our American clients:

Key to using a Hong Kong corporation to establish a Chinese subsidiary is the ability open and maintain a corporate bank account in Hong Kong, since a Chinese subsidiary may only receive a capital injection from a bank account held in the name of the parent company.

This has left many American businesses stranded. In some cases, the subsidiary has already been established, but cannot be funded or controlled, as applications for a Hong Kong bank account are rejected. In others, long-running operations are paralyzed, as already existing accounts are shut down.

There are some 50 000 US citizens living in Hong Kong, not including US green card holders who are also required to file US tax returns. Law firms specializing in the area have been reporting record numbers of inquiries about relinquishing US citizenship or green card status.

What this means for Hong Kong:
This has implications for Hong Kong’s future as the preferred gateway into China. Singapore has already replaced Mauritius as the leading source of FDI into India, and investors have long been weighing up the advantages of the city state – its independence from China’s laws and political stability – against Hong Kong’s proximity to, and strong trade links with, the mainland. FATCA may prove to be the final straw.

Justice Department Probes Currency Exchange Site That Vanished With Cash

By David Evans and Willem Marx Dec 18, 2014 12:01 AM ET

The U.S. Department of Justice has begun a criminal investigation into the foreign exchange trading website Secureinvestment.com, which vanished last May 1 with as much as $1 billion from investors around the world.

The Financial and Capital Market Commission in Latvia is also probing the involvement of Latvian banks used by Secure Investment, says agency spokeswoman Elina Avotina.

An investigator with the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Eastern District of New York has interviewed Secure investors in the U.S. and Canada, according to the people who were contacted. Two of those people were quoted in “Anything But Secure” in the December issue of Bloomberg Markets magazine. Bloomberg had interviewed customers in 11 countries on five continents who said they saw their money evaporate with Secure Investment when its website disappeared.

“They’re not going to be able to hide forever,” says Ted Liming, a worker in a fast food restaurant in Watford City, North Dakota. Liming invested his savings of $21,725 with Secure Investment. “One day their partying with our money will be over.”

Liming says he has provided copies of his wire transfers to Secure Investment’s bank accounts to a federal investigator.

David Kane, a Houston oil industry technical support manager, also says he spoke to the Justice Department.

‘Feels Good’

“I think the guys behind this could be tracked down if people put an effort into it,” says Kane, who lost $2,000 to Secure. “It feels good that someone in law enforcement is taking an interest in it.”

Nellin McIntosh, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Eastern District of New York, declined to comment. No one at Secure Investment has responded to calls or e-mails since May 1.

Secure had claimed on its website that it traded more than $4.8 billion daily for at least 100,000 investors in 140 countries. The site said its customers averaged net gains of 1 percent each trading day for five years.

By using banks around the world and small related company names for accounts, Secure Investment obscured the paper trail of investor funds it took in, Markets reported. Some of those banks were in Latvia, in the Baltic region of northern Europe.

Latvia’s Financial and Capital Market Commission is investigating the role those banks played with Secure Investment, says agency spokeswoman Avotina. “Upon receipt of information from credit institutions, the FCMC will assess whether the credit institutions had acted in accordance with the provisions of regulatory requirements,” she says.

Never Revealed

Secure Investment, which investors found only on the Internet, never revealed its true location. It listed its call centers’ toll-free phone numbers in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, the U.K. and the U.S. Secure instructed investors to wire their cash to banks in Australia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and the Seychelles.

Secure Investment lured customers by creating its own good reputation and by publishing a seemingly successful trading record on its elaborate website. It was all a lie, Bloomberg Markets reported. The company’s claims to have offices and a large staff were false. At least some of its so-called customer testimonials were actually delivered by actors who said they knew nothing about Secure Investment.

The deception worked — for a while. In March, Secure’s website was more popular than Forex.com, the second-largest U.S.-based, over-the-counter forex trading firm, according to Alexa.com, a unit of Amazon.com Inc.

North Dakota restaurant worker Liming says he was among those who followed the Secure Investment website postings before he invested. He says he can’t forget the cold shivers he felt as his e-mails to the customer service department came back undeliverable in May, and he couldn’t reach the company by phone.

“It was like someone had drained the blood out of my body,” he says. “I felt very sick. It was like the flu and hangover had a baby together.”

NAZI-Communist Bitch George Soros Has Now Crossed the Line

by Tom Heneghan, International Intelligence Expert
source

UNITED States of America   –   It can now be reported that North Korea has been the headquarters for the privately owned U.S. Federal Reserve and the Central Bank of Japan (BoJ) ponzi scheme with NAZI-Communist Jew George Soros’ hedge fund as the major enabler.
Hungarian NAZI Jew Soros has conspired with the BoJ, U.S. Citibank and the Saudi Royal Family to attack the Russian ruble as to create cross-collateralized, undermargined foreign currency derivatives to support U.S. and Japanese equity crisis.
Soros has no cash now given his losses in the gold market but uses crooked offshore entities that allow him to use liabilities aka bank I.O.U.s as assets.
Soros directly conspired with the Obama Administration and the Saudi Royal Family aka closet Zionists to attack the price of oil and overnight futures markets as to further depreciate the Russian ruble on behalf of the privately owned U.S. Federal Reserve and the Central Bank of Japan’s ponzi scheme.
The criminal Obama Administration and the current compromised and blackmailed Japanese government has allowed Soros, on behalf of Ukrainian NAZIS, to use the pension funds of both American and Japanese citizens as collateral in this latest financial looting operation.
At this hour, Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the IMF (International Monetary Fund) has had enough!
P.S.  It is important to remember that NAZI-Communist Jew Soros, along with the Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate, helped financed, along with the Japanese mafia Yakuza, the North Korean nuclear facilities that were then used as a cover to disguise the financial criminality that took place on behalf of the Japanese mafia, the Central Bank of Japan and the Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate.
In closing, as we approach WWIII, it is important to note that Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin has and always will be a devout Orthodox Christian who opposes abortion and homosexuality and tyranny.
Putin knows very well that current alleged fraudulent pResident (the False One) Barack Hussein Obama is a note homosexual and bisexual who received oral sex while doing cocaine in a limousine from Larry Sinclair of Chicago, Illinois.
Vladimir Putin also know through his Intelligence sources, including French Intelligence, that former U.S. illegal White House occupant George W. BushFRAUD was also a rabid homosexual and bisexual who continues sex on a regular basis with his former college roommate and ‘Skull and Bones’ member Victor Ashe and had at least 38 visits in the White House from body builder and his homosexual lover Jeff Gannon.
And last but not least, is former First Lady and New York Senator Hillary Rodenhurst Clinton (elected twice without opposition and conspired in the assassination of John F. Kennedy Jr. who would have beaten her hands down in 2000 Senatorial race) remains a Satanic, 5th degree lesbian witch, who is actually related to 5th degree NAZI bitch Barbara Bush.  

George Soros may be appointed head of National Bank of Ukraine

Sheriffs meeting in DC december 10

http://www.nationallibertyalliance.org/comment/3999#comment-3999

I was there and saw it myself. The Raymond Senate building, Washington DC December 10, 2014. More than 200 sheriffs, from all over the country, arrived to notify congress they will not enforce any illegal laws in their state, that includes amnesty for illegal aliens. I was there, along with about 100 other people to show the sheriffs they have the support of the people, and any politician who will retaliate against the sheriff will be thrown out of office. I met these Sheriffs. They stiood tall, proud, honorable, and looking like protectors of the constitution. All the sheriffs now know their authority is supreme to the federal government. This fact was specifically shown in 1994 when Sherriff Richard Mack, of AZ, won a lawsuit against the Clinton administration for trying to impose a gun ban bill on the sate. It is time to expose the police as mere code enforcement officers, and the Sherriff as the only true law enforcement officer in the country. Sheriffs all over the country are recognizing they have the legal and moral obligation to arrest code enforcement officers, politicians, judges, legislators, governors, even other sheriffs for failure to uphold their oath of office, which is to defend the constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic. I recommend having, as a saved phone number, the name and number of your local sheriff. Take a chance to meet in person. Notify the sheriff of their sworn duty and that the sheriff has your full support. Local sheriffs have a fear of political retribution, so they don’t act against the frauds upon the people. If the sheriff will protect you from them, you have to do your part to protect the sheriff from them with your voice and your vote.

Man with Paralyzed Arms Charged with Gun Possession

http://www.infowars.com/man-with-paralyzed-arms-charged-with-gun-possession/

“How could he be held for four months on a gun charge? He cannot move his arms. They are useless to him.”

Man with Paralyzed Arms Charged with Gun Possession

by Mikael Thalen | Infowars.com | December 18, 2014

A New Jersey man with paralyzed arms remains in jail more than four months after receiving a gun possession charge despite a lack of evidence and logic.

The man, 28-year-old Marcus Hubbard, was arrested with three other men last August after police found a stolen firearm and a bottle of codeine in the group’s vehicle.

Despite all passengers stating that the firearm was not Hubbard’s, police opted to charge the entire group with “constructive possession” after no one claimed responsibility.

Hubbard’s lawyer, Caroline Turner, stated Tuesday during a bail hearing that her client’s continued imprisonment “shocks the conscience.”

“How could he be held for four months on a gun charge?” Turner said. “He cannot move his arms. They are useless to him.”

Hubbard, who is believed to have Lou Gehrig’s Disease in addition to his spinal condition, was able to get his bail lowered from $100,000 to $35,000 according to NJ.com.

While Turner called for her client to be released without bail, Assistant Prosecutor William Fisher asserted that lack of working arms did not equate to innocence.

“The police reports do seem to confirm this defendant has no use of his hands but I would disagree that that doesn’t mean necessarily that he can’t be guilty of a crime,” said Assistant Prosecutor William Fisher.

Turner further noted that Hubbard was not sitting near the area in which the firearm was discovered, leading her to believe that prosecutors were misconstruing the constructive possession law.

Hubbard currently remains hospitalized in protective custody awaiting his next court date.

Former Polish President Confirms Existence of Secret CIA Torture Prison

Former Polish President Confirms Existence of Secret CIA Torture Prison

The Polish government has denied for years the existence of a secret CIA prison on its territory between 2001 and 2003 in the face of previous revelations.
The publication of the US Senate report on CIA torture, however, has not only proven the existence of the “black site” but also the close collaboration between the Polish and American governments in barbaric and illegal practices.
American president Barack Obama called Polish president Ewa Kopacz the night before the report’s release “in order to forewarn the US ally of the publication,” according to Polish sources.
The following day, Aleksander Kwaśniewski, Poland’s president between 1995 and 2005, gave a joint press conference in the country’s parliament, the Sejm, with Leszek Miller, prime minister between 2001 and 2004. For the first time, the two social democrats from the Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) admitted that the CIA had operated a secret prison in Poland.
The approval of the clandestine facility, which reportedly operated between 2001 and 2003, was part of strengthening Poland’s ties to the US as part of the so-called war on terror, Kwaśniewski said. He claimed the government asked the US to treat prisoners in accordance with Polish law. A memorandum drafted for this purpose was “informally” recognised by the US representatives but not signed due to time, he claimed.
The former president said the cooperation with the US accelerated after September 2001 as Poland responded under NATO rules to an attack on a fellow member nation.
Although Kwaśniewski said he was opposed to it, he admitted to having known about the torture, essentially acknowledging his complicity in these crimes. “Interrogations were unfortunately normally carried out secretly and on the verge of legality. But the goal of all of this was not torture for torture’s sake, but to obtain information we otherwise would not have got.”
The millions of dollars Poland received from the CIA was all legal, Kwaśniewski claimed. This had been paid not for making the secret location available, he asserted, but other purposes. “The financing took place in accordance with the regulations of the Polish intelligence agencies, the Agencja Wywiadu and Agencja Bezpieczeństwa Wewnętrznego,” he said, adding, “The parliamentary committee for the secret services was informed about the financing.”
Prior to the long-delayed release of the 500-page summary of the US Senate report, some of its contents were revealed in the media. In January, after the 6,700-page full report had been ready for some time, the Washington Post reported the existence of a CIA prison in Poland. It seems likely that information from the Senate report was passed to the newspaper.
The Post revealed that in December 2002, two Palestinian-born prisoners, Abu Zubaydah and Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, were taken to a villa functioning as a prison in the village of Stare Kiejkuty, a restricted military area, and tortured. This was followed in March 2003 by the Pakistani Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. The CIA left Poland in September 2003, the paper wrote, because “it was feared that using an institution for too long could lead to its exposure.”
Since 2008, there have been repeated reports that Sheikh Mohammed was tortured in a Polish CIA prison. The reports were based on witness statements from intelligence agents and Sheikh Mohammed himself. In that year, the Polish state prosecutor began investigations into the government of Leszek Miller for suspected abuse of office. The investigations are still ongoing.
The Post detailed the methods used by the CIA torturers, including beatings, sleep deprivation and waterboarding or near-drowning. Mohammed was waterboarded 183 times and Nashiri subjected to a mock execution, the newspaper noted.
The torture chamber at Stare Kielkuty, which was given the code-name “Quartz,” was seen as “one of the most important black sites established by the CIA after September 11, 2001,” the Post wrote. The CIA spent $300,000 alone on surveillance cameras attached to the building.
The building was made available to the CIA by Polish intelligence—Agencja Wywiadu—which had previously used it. According to the Post, the agency received $15 million in cash in return, which was transferred through the US embassy in Warsaw.
The reference to the detainees’ names and further details in the Post article made it possible to immediately identify the CIA’s Polish institution. The site appears in the report as “detention site Blue” beginning on page 67 of the torture report. Between pages 73 and 75, tensions with “land X” are reported, a blacked-out reference to Poland, in connection “with the CIA prison facility and the bringing of new detainees.”
The report further states, “The political leadership (of Poland) gave their consent to host a CIA institution” (page 73), and “The agreement to create a CIA institution in Poland led to numerous sustained difficulties between Poland and the CIA.” Polish representatives “suggested a ‘memorandum of understanding’ that would confirm each of the roles and responsibilities between Poland and the CIA, which was ultimately not signed by the CIA” (page 74).
Polish officials first opposed the transfer of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed but subsequently acquiesced after “the US ambassador intervened with the leadership [redacted] on behalf of the CIA,” the report said. “One month later, the CIA made [redacted] million dollars available, after which the [redacted] leadership indicated that they were flexible on the issue of the number of CIA detainees” (page 74).
Finally, the report noted the “great disappointment” of Polish representatives with the CIA’s inability to keep secrets. The fact that then-US president George W. Bush made the programme public in September 2006 without any warning also caused irritation, according to the report. The CIA interpreted the events as “a serious setback in bilateral relations” (page 75).
Kwaśniewski thus merely acknowledged at the press conference what could no longer be denied. In July of this year, the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg ordered that the Polish state pay compensation to Abu Zubaydah of €100,000 and a similar sum to al-Nashiri, because both had “not [been] protected from torture and inhumane treatment.”
Despite the publicly available facts, Kwaśniewski defended the Polish-sponsored torture chambers, criticising only that it had been uncovered.
“We have been betrayed,” said Kwaśniewski, referring to the publication of the report, which could yet have legal consequences for him and other members of the government. “In the long term, the Americans will lose the ability to be an alliance partner, because every country will ask themselves how much trust they can be given?,” he continued.
Kwaśniewski justified his government’s violation of the Polish constitution and international law by suggesting that greater collaboration with the US was necessary because the NATO-Russia conflict over Ukraine was leading to a Russian aggression against Poland.
“We helped the Americans in the war on terror. That’s why we can expect that faced with the threatening of Poland, that our requests for missiles, soldiers and reconnaissance planes will not be opposed.” Poland could “demand meaningful support for its security at this extremely challenging time.”
Current president Ewa Kopacz of the neoliberal Citizens Platform (PO) expressed the same message, saying, “Regardless of what is in the report, it will not burden our relations with the US.”
 

Judicial Watch Obtains Fast and Furious Crime Scene Photos from Phoenix 2013 Gang-Style Assault with Rifle Supplied by Obama Justice Department

http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/judicial-watch-obtains-fast-furious-crime-scene-photos-phoenix-2013-gang-style-assault-rifle-supplied-obama-justice-department/

DECEMBER 18, 2014

Photos include close-up shots of Fast and Furious AK-47 rifle, blood-stained apartment, victim with massive head wound

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained graphic crime scene photos taken at the site of a 2013 gang-style assault on a Phoenix, AZ, apartment building, including a close-up photo revealing the serial number of the AK-47 rifle used by the assailants.  As a result of Judicial Watch’s October 2, 2014, public records lawsuit, the weapon has been already traced to the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning program.  The photos were also produced by the Phoenix Police Department in response to this lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. City of Phoenix (No. CV2014- 012018)).

According to press reports at the time of the assault, police investigating the shooting that left two wounded found an AK-47 assault rifle in the front passenger area of a vehicle that had crashed into a fence surrounding the apartment complex. Inside sources informed Judicial Watch at the time of the crime scene investigation that the AK-47 used in the assault had been provided to the assailants as part of the Obama-Holder Fast and Furious program. On October 16, 2014, Judicial Watch announced that, based upon information uncovered through its October 2 public records lawsuit, the U.S. Congress had confirmed that the rifle was tied to the Fast and Furious operation.  Attorney General Eric Holder has already admitted that guns from the Fast and Furious scandal are expected to be used in criminal activity on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border for years to come.

In an October 16 letter to Deputy Attorney General James Cole, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) and Rep. Darryl Issa (R-CA) to Deputy Attorney General James Cole detail:

Based on the serial number [1977DX1654] from the police report obtained by Judicial Watch and documents obtained during our Fast and Furious investigation, we can confirm that the assault rifle recovered in the vehicle on July 30, 2013, was purchased by Sean Christopher Stewart. Stewart pled guilty to firearms trafficking charges resulting from his involvement with Operation Fast and Furious … Stewart purchased this particular firearm on December 8, 2009, one of 40 that he purchased that day while under ATF surveillance.” [Emphasis in original]

According to the Phoenix Police Department report, ATF traced the firearm on July 31, 2013, the day after Phoenix police officers recovered it. Yet, over a full year has passed, and the Department has failed to notify the Committees … This lack of transparency about the consequences of Fast and Furious undermines public confidence in law enforcement and gives the impression that the Department is seeking to suppress information and limit its exposure to public scrutiny.

In addition, despite the fact that the crime scene photos obtained by Judicial Watch clearly revealed a serial number that would show that the AK-47 used in the commission of the crime was a Fast and Furious weapon, the City of Phoenix and Department of Justice failed to turn over the incriminating photos to Congress, despite longstanding requests for such information. According to Judicial Watch sources, investigators knew at the scene and subsequently that the AK-47 was a Fast and Furious weapon.

The graphic crime scene photos include, but are not limited to, the following:

Three weeks following the July 29, 2013, assault, four suspects were apprehended in a raid conducted jointly by Phoenix police detectives and investigators from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). According to press reports at the time “numerous rifles and handguns” were found when, “Detectives from the Phoenix Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations served federal search warrants.”

The presence of DHS investigators immediately raised questions because Phoenix was the central location of the ATF’s deadly Fast and Furious gunrunning operation. Operation Fast and Furious was a Justice Department/ Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) program in which the Obama administration allowed guns to go to Mexican drug cartels in the hopes that the guns would end up at crime scenes, thereby advancing gun-control policies. Fast and Furious weapons have been implicated in the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and hundreds of other innocents in Mexico.

The failure to provide Congress with reports about the Phoenix crime scene is not the first time the Obama Justice Department has been accused of withholding Fast and Furious information. On June 28, 2012, Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt by the House of Representatives over his refusal to turn over documents about why the Obama administration may have lied to Congress and refused for months to disclose the truth about the gunrunning operation.  It marked the first time in U.S. history a sitting Attorney General was held in contempt of Congress.

Separate Judicial Watch litigation for these documents, which had been subjected to an extraordinary executive privilege reelection season claim by President Obama, forced their release.  Attorney General Holder announced his surprise retirement two days after the federal court ruling that led to the disclosure of the documents and to President Obama’s abandoning all of his controversial executive privilege claims that had kept the documents secret for nearly three years.

“Another Obama administration Fast and Furious cover-up has been undone by Judicial Watch.  These crime scene photos graphically illustrate the legacy of President Obama and Eric Holder’s deadly Fast and Furious lies,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Even as the evidence and casualties mount, the Obama administration is still secreting information about its reckless program. These photos show the American people firsthand the bloody consequences when an out-of-control administration will not even admit – or correct – its own mistakes.”

Judicial Watch investigators are currently uploading the photos in their entirety.

10 things Banksters don’t want you to know…

10 things Banksters don’t want you to know…

10 Things Banksters Don’t Want You to Know

1. Banks create money out of thin air based on your signature on the loan documents.
2. When you pay your loan, you pay the bank the principal which was created out of thin air, plus interest. The bank never had any money at risk.
3. The laws are written for the banks, making it legal for them to foreclose and sue for more, even though the bank never had anything at risk.
4. The Federal Reserve is not Federal, but a privately owned corporation.
5. The US Dollar is fiat, meaning backed by nothing except the users gullibility.
6. The National Debt is never paid, only interest on the debt is paid.
7. The National debt is owed to the international banksters, and secured by every citizen, all Federal property, and protected by bought off politicians.
8. The banksters (via the Federal Reserve) control the economy.
9. The stock market is rigged and manipulated by the banksters.
10. All wars are created and managed by and for the banksters.

As Henry Ford said:
“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”

 

Files of More Than 40,000 Federal Workers Breached

Files of More Than 40,000 Federal Workers Breached

WASHINGTON — Dec 18, 2014, 4:19 PM ET
By STEPHEN BRAUN Associated Press
Associated Press
The computer files of more than 40,000 federal workers may have been compromised by a cyberattack at federal contractor KeyPoint Government Solutions, the second breach this year at a major firm handling national security background investigations of workers at federal agencies, the government confirmed Thursday.
Concerned that some data might have been exposed, the Office of Personnel Management has begun notifying the workers that their files were in jeopardy. Nathalie Arriola, speaking for the personnel office, said it will offer credit monitoring at no cost to those affected by the breach.
KeyPoint became the largest private clearance firm working for federal agencies several months ago after rival contractor USIS lost its investigations business with the government following a devastating cyberattack reported earlier this year. The USIS breach, similar to previous hacking episodes traced to China, tainted the files of at least 25,000 Department of Homeland Securityworkers and prompted the personnel office’s decision to halt all of USIS’ government field work. That move led to the cancelation of more than $300 million in contracts with USIS.
Cyberattacks have targeted several other federal agencies this year. A wide-ranging strike reported in November compromised the data of more than 800,000 Postal Service workers. The personnel office itself was targeted earlier by cyberhackers traced to China.
Arriola said Thursday her agency is continuing to work with KeyPoint despite the severity of the strike. “KeyPoint has worked closely with OPM to implement additional security controls,” Arriola said.
In an earlier email within the agency, Donna Seymour, the chief information officer, said KeyPoint had added “numerous controls to continue to conduct business with the company without interruption.” In the USIS breach, that firm and the OPM differed over how extensively USIS needed to upgrade its computer network and security safeguards. The disagreement led to the suspension of USIS field investigations.
Neither Arriola nor Seymour said when the latest strike occurred or was reported to federal authorities, or whether a foreign state was suspected. Colorado-based KeyPoint declined comment through a public affairs firm.
Arriola said officials recently concluded an investigation into the KeyPoint breach and found “no conclusive evidence to confirm sensitive information was removed from the system.”

IRS warns of possible shutdown

IRS warns of possible shutdown

12/18/14 3:30 PM EST
Updated 12/18/14 4:49 PM EST
The IRS is considering its own temporary shutdown due to recent budget cuts enacted by Congress, its chief said Thursday.
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said furloughs — forced unpaid days off for employees as part of an IRS closure — is one idea reluctantly being tossed about to save money, though they are hoping they will not have to go there.
Story Continued Below
“People call it furloughs; I view it as: Are we going to have to shut the place down? And at this point, that will be the last thing we do, … but there is no way we can say right now that that wont happen,” Koskinen told reporters at a Thursday press conference on the upcoming tax season. “Again, I would stress that would be the last option.”
He said a shutdown would mean the IRS would “close the agency for a day, two days, whatever days it would take to close the gap that we can’t otherwise close in a reasonable way.”
The agency estimates each closed day would save $29 million.
The news comes a day after Koskinen in an email warned IRS employees that overtime would be suspended and a hiring freeze enacted. He also said more tough news would likely follow as IRS leadership negotiates with the National Treasury Employees Union, particularly because personnel costs comprise about 75 percent of the IRS costs.
In the recent budget deal, Congress cut the IRS budget by $346 million to $10.9 billion — $1.5 billion less than the administration asked for. The IRS’ budget has been reduced about $1 billion since 2010.
The agency was one of the only agencies that got a cut this year — despite the storm of a tax season looming on the horizon. The IRS will be implementing Obamacare tax credits and penalties for the first time as well as a new tax evasion law.
But Koskinen said his current budget challenge is made worse by a mandated one percent federal employee increase it must abide by.
“It’s not just the $350 million cut in the budget; it’s the fact that we have $250 million in new expenses for a government-wide pay raise. … So we really have a $600 million hole this year,” he said.
Koskinen took over the agency after it faced big criticism following the controversy over added scrutiny given to tea party groups seeking tax-exempt status. Republicans, never a fan of the IRS, have sought to cut its budget further ever since. They’ve also been critical of the IRS paying out bonuses this year, and still mention lavish conferences the IRS hosted several years back.
Since then, the IRS has cut its training budget by more than 85 percent, according to the National Taxpayer Advocate, which is anticipating more trouble due to budget cuts.
Koskinen says there is no more fat to cut at the IRS.
