House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Free Speech Zone Learn more about why this page was created at http://bit.ly/kXOovM Because the House Oversight Committee staff have been banning users that post critical comments (even comments simply asking why they delete comments), we have established this free speech zone.

Communications here will be delivered to Chairman Darrell Issa via twitter (follow @HouseGROC). This workaround will allow Facebook users who were banned, or those just sick of their comments being deleted, to continue expressing their comments and concerns.

Elizabeth Warren's Unusually Active Online Fans. | The New Republic

'Under normal circumstances, government officials—those culled from the ranks of dull bureaucrats, policy wonks, and lawyers—rarely inspire this kind of fealty, much less passion. And on paper, at least, Warren appears to fit this uninspiring mold: She’s a lawyer, an academic, and one from Harvard to boot. Yet Warren commands a legion of loyalists apparently willing to rush, at a moment’s notice, to her defense.'

The New Republic covers politics, culture, and the arts with a focus on the White House, foreign policy, Congress, Capitol Hill, Wikileaks, the lame duck session, literature, and more.

dear Sir , with all the illegals pouring into our country we need the wall more than ever. How many americans have to die each year before it is too many. They drain our society of funds needed to help our own citizens . although ice does a great job they are pouring into the u.s. faster than they ice can deport them. that being said i know i would be more than glad to donate to a build the wall. I don't have much but it would be worth it if it saved one person Take care and God Bless
Each and every person involved in this embarrassing attack on the investigation of the Russian meddling and possible involvement by the Trump people has and continues to dishonor our constitution. You have been bought of by the wealthy donor class that put you in the senate with dirty money. Go back to what is right and support the America of choice,freedom and justice. I hear more lies and hate spoken by the senate Republicans than I can bear.You have hit a new low. And when you say Americans want to end this quest for truth you are disgusting lairs. Democrats and Republicans want and need to know.
Has this Ohr character ever been investigated for possible involvement in the Fast and Furious coverup? He runs OCDETF cases for the DOJ. How long has he been doing that? Fast and Furious was an OCDETF case. I am up on all details related to Fast and Furious and I have never heard his name before.
New Jersey Treasury Department at they best to help small business New Jersey Treasury Department; are you proud of yourself This is how Sate of New Jersey works as long they get what they want it does not matter if is legal or not, they are bosses they can screw you as they like? Ladies and Gentlemen "I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong." "You can relate to these in paragraph below" Compare; New Jersey Treasury and Gestapo. only in America like Germany; Nazi they first came for the individual businesses because they are the only truly free individual from top level corruption In Germany they came first for the Jews; The people didn't speak up because they weren't a Jew. Then they came for the Communists, and they didn't speak up because they weren't a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and they didn't speak up because they weren't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and they didn't speak up because they were not a Catholics. Thenm they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up. "So Ladies and Gentlemen I am speaking up"! You must to have heard about old cliché; I see you as? If you are not part of solution then you are part of problem. To punish me for no contempt of authority; fate made me an authority myself. New Jersey State; it self should try "not" to become an authority of success but rather to become an authority of value! Nothing; in the world makes people as afraid as the influence of Independent-minded people, perhaps you fall in that category. It is nothing; is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which “do not means justifies end” cannot be justifiable enforced in multitude, which covers majorities instead of individuality! It is an open secret; that the dangerous crime increase of in this country is closely related with this type of laws (if are ones) that our Treasury Department exercise.The unleashed; power of the mine has changed everything save our modes of thinking and we thus drift toward unparalleled catastrophe. Truth is tough; it will not break, like a bubble, at a touch; nay, you may kick it about all day like a football, and it will be round and full at evening. Yes Ladies and Gentlemen; in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes. However justice and fairness must be considered "first". Because some corporation refused to pay user/sales tax, either claiming that they are tax exempt, or they issue invalid resale's certificate, or they simply deducted tax from my invoices, these organization have refuse to pay user tax, these organizations had committed fraud a felony and yet you; NJ Treasury Dept. did not do a thing about it. Well that is not quiet accurate yes they did, they rewarded them by collecting assessed tax by penalizing me and making me pay for it. “Interesting isn't”! Now just think; for a moment about this, NJ State Treasury is protecting organizations that committed fraud never the less a crime. The Treasury of NJ finds it much easier to penalize individual then go after corporation that have lawyer standing by. You see they are above civil rights or constitution which suppose to govern this Country a land that we living on and fighting to death for our civil liberty that they are taken way from us little bit at time! Thank you, you must be proud of yourself Dear law makers? How we spend our days is, of course, is how we spend our lives. What rights; do we have? As citizens of this country that is in question isn't! Law-abiding citizen get penalized for the organizations that committed fraud. After I made several complains to the Legislature I been contacted by gentlemen as acting chief investigator Mr. Mark Hartmann that he is investigating the situation. Well that some what put me on ease maybe this gentleman will do something about this problem, I figure to give gentlemen some time so I waited about month or so and I push letter to him requesting info. What is going on, another month or so pass by I finally got answer, I will try to make small version of what he got to say. It says because I did not complain to Audit doing time she done her thing sorry we can do nothing for you and that they are going to wave $400.00 out of $26,000.00 plus what was taking from me; which I have never received. It was stated that I did not complain? Ethical axioms; are found and tested not very differently from the axioms of Science. Truth is what stands the test of ethical experience. Interesting scenario; since first time I hear from audit since she started auditing was from judge that unless payment is made in cash or bank check to treasury Dept. of New Jersey warrant will be issue for my arrest. So how was I supposed to contest anything since I was convicted and sentence before I could review her finding? Regardless I do not know of any laws in this country that victim pays fines for individual or organizations that commit criminal deeds, however that is just what New Jersey State Treasury Dept. did to me. I have been penalized for doing my civil duty attempting to collect sales tax for the state and I get rewarded by being force to pay unjust penalties. I do the very best I know how - the very best I can; and I mean to keep on doing so until the end. As far as the laws; of New Jersey Treasury refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality. But the state of NJ has advocated laws to flatter them self how much blood can they squeeze out of individual businesses, because? They know that Lawyers cost more if you are to take them to court. New Jersey State had violated my constitutional rights by implementing such act; New Jersey State had restricted my monitory usages of funds that are violation of my civil right of movement. It seems to me by doing this acts; That State of New Jersey have created unprecedented circumstances where I am authorized to use the force collecting state user/sale's tax, for that my action will be States liability. You know it is sad that we are sending our troops to other countries to fight injustice when our States use Gestapo tactics and claiming it to be a law; may I ask whose law? Hitler's! Some system some tactics that our officials use, yes so they can flatter them self and claiming to be a law. Yes more like a scam by crooks; so that they can put either in they hats! Plus nice bonuses for Christmas and Easter. NJ PLEASE DOES NOT ASK FOR APOLOGIES UNTIL? State reimburses me with interest what was taking from me. Attn: New Jersey Treasury Department I am no longer asking for money that was taking from me. I am demanding money back with one additional digit added to it where $26,000.00 is now 260,000.00 because you have failed to be a Human. In addition for my mental and stress suffering, defamation of my Company and me, inability to be husband/spouse as I should be. It is needless to say that this action by Treasury Department for taxation; is ruthless irresponsible beyond any limits for any person to apprehend? The Route that was taking by you has put State of New Jersey and the Country centuries back. I do; not blame anyone specifically. However I do blame entire Legislative system; the current and them predecessors in my opinion they are all filthy CROOKS, they should be shame to be called Legislator's. Personal handling particular case from Treasury Dept. Mr. Bradley E. Abelow ("An" New Jersey State Treasurer ) Ms. Cheryl Fulmer ("An" Acting Assistant Director Compliance Service) Mr. Lawrence F. Gauges ("An" Chief Field Audit Branch) Ms. Carol O'Cleireacain (An" Special Procedures Branch) Mr. Mark Hartmann ("An" Acting Chief Investigator) Ms. Christine Stupak ("An" Garnishment Processing) Ms. Cheryl Flumer ("An" Acting Assistant Director) Ms. Wilma Shackin ("An" Judgments section-B) Ms. Jenny Portero ("An" The Audit) Ms. Carol O’Cleireacain (“An” Judge Division of Taxation) Ms. Nokeima Holloway (“An” Division of Taxation Audit-A). New Jersey; Please change Abraham Lincoln Slogan; Of the people by the people for the people to: “Of the Crooks by the Crooks for the Crooks" NJ Treasury Department these Your Report Card/Resume Have Treasury Dept. State of New Jersey in 30 years ever send me Pamphlets, Book, literature, or advising me how to go about collecting user/sale's tax. The answer to that is NO! Have Treasury Dept. State of New Jersey sent me instruction in case there are problems, getting people to pay they tax what should I to do about it. The answer to that is NO! Have Treasury Dept. State of New Jersey sent me any Information in case I am needed to contact some one, by phone, fax, name or department. The answer to that is NO! Have Treasury Dept. State of New Jersey inquired do I need help with filing and getting prospective or active customers to comply with State laws of New Jersey. The answer to that is NO! Have Treasury Dept. State of New Jersey Audit, while doing her work asked me for verification when she find improprieties on tax collecting. The answer to that is NO! Have Treasury Dept. State of New Jersey gave me authority to force Delinquent organization on tax payments to account for not payment. The answer to that is NO! Have Treasury Dept. State of New Jersey advise me what I will need to Show when audit set appointment to check my books. The answer to that is NO! Have Treasury Dept. State of New Jersey asked me is it convenient for me to be there at date when audit is to take place, (As am one person corp.) You expect me to make it convenience for you I am fried not! The answer to that is NO! Have Treasury Dept. State of New Jersey Audit took time to examining all Invoices and papers, because if she did it would not have so many mistakes. The answer to that is NO! Note: Still do not know what happen to the money that state seized on my checking account After all the taxes and penalties have been paid that was imposed on me. The answer to that is NO! After all tax has been paid which was negotiated by my CPA You went and put seizure on my Co. Banking account without my or his knowledge may I ask "Why"! You have not provided any explanation. Is it because you wanted to show me that you can do it, because there was no other reason since your demand of collection was met. I guess the only reason would be to defame my Co. good name. “You are despicable Bastards“ Perhaps Treasury Dept. State of New Jersey gave self-bonuses for Christmas of 2005 and for Easter 2006 of the money seized on my Checking account, since I was not giving explanation why this was done since all allege tax due was met and paid. The answer to that is NO! Cascade Environment Co. Inc. "HAS CLOSED" end of 2007 Posting will not end unless State decides to compensate and compensate in good fate! "PERHAPS IF YOU HAVE AUDOCITY WOULD YOU KINDLY SHOW ME UNDER WHAT STATUE OF JUSTICE CONSTITUTIONAL RULES OF LAW APPLIES THAT THE VICTIM PAYS FINES/PENALTIES ON FRAUD THAT HAS BEEN COMMITTED AGAINST HIM? I am service contractor self-employed one man Corp. In the field of Environmental test Equipment/Industrial process equipment. All my work is done per service call to Manufactures. The tax I have referred to is user tax "only" it does not have anything to do with any other taxes. As I have stated I work per service call, customers call me when they are need of equipment Repair. All work is done through Purchase orders, however some companies issue Po's before work is done and some after work is completed depend on Company's management set-up and how much of work is involved. Companies that I work for can be those that are Government prime contractors or subcontractors. Some companies will state on their Po's clearly and visible we are user "Tax Exempted" with they exemption number, others have issued resale certificate but state say "O" they are not valid. So what do you want from me I am not lawyer or policeman or authorized to use force on this people to pay the states user/sale's tax, by the law I can only request! I have no authority to force these people to pay the assessed tax but only request. State has chosen to penalize me instead going after real violators. It seems to me that Mafia has more ethics then New Jersey State Treasury Department. And we have audacities to tell other countries how to run their Government. It is really sad for me to say this because I was born in Country run by Communist Government and now I am subject the same terrorism from Sate of New Jersey as I was many years ago oversea. Additional Information contains he say so she says so I do not have proofs for any innuendo so I will leave it up to you if you are going believe it or not. I was told recently by some people who had some experience with audit that this people (Audit) expect you to host them with vine and dine, Doing they audit sessions other vise you are up to creek. I do not know how much of truth is in there if is any? However if is truth I am sorry no one host me in must cases I am lucky if I get offer cup of coffee so? Sorry you get pay for your work same as I. Doing audit lady that did it work she was with chilled I understand she was more interested in having Her baby then doing the work, I would like to know How much actual time she put in and how much she claims actual work time. I grant her to be a good Mom and "I honor her for that". However I object when is on my expense. Just recently I learn from my lawyer with letter from Treasury Department Chief, saying that I did not complain with in time allowed by the state. I wonder if he really knows what his Department is doing since I have being sending complains from White House on down. In regard to time limit where in the letter communicate that was sent to me saying that’ that I have time limit; "Scum-bag" every body was contacted more then once. If he really does not know he is incompetent, if he do knows and did nothing about it, then in my opinion I find him to be one of lowest form of life that God created. The person I am talking about Mr. L. Giuges Chief of Treasury Department. May be his department employee should read email once a while. I been posting complains From President Bush on down for past two to three years. If treasury department employees do want read email that is not my problem, so now are looking for some excuses! Well ladies & Gentlemen excuse me! If you have done your job properly I would not be posting or complaining. However I will continue to remind you crooks above that you owe me! “Thank you very much”. Note: The Company is out of business; The State of NJ you have bail out ENCAP and XANADU with my understanding with tax payer money of $1.5+ billion so that these shmocks can have they fancy cars servants and condominium in on retreats island, but you have penalized me to pay user/sales tax for Organization that committed fraud, falsifying purchase orders and resale Certificates; that saying we are exempt. Question for all of you; State employees that get reimburse for use of your personal Vehicles I wonder do you pay user tax and declaring receivable on you income tax; because according regulation you impose on me you are doing that?
