Bartok that's right well let's talk a little bit with the Michelle Malkin -- -- every Thursday at this time Colorado Springs -- -- -- here.
Remind you know so many scandals -- choose from let's focus in on the IRS we wondered who exactly was you know we heard it was his low level people.
At the Cincinnati on this will now they'll love the people are talking because they are -- Angry that -- learned through them under the bus that apparently is getting so big.
Oh now we understand that apparently a woman by the name of Elizabeth half -- -- asked by DC to look for some groups target some.
Tea Party group.
She wanted to know what to ask him and so she turned to a Fella in the Washington DC and -- lawyer by the name of Carter hall.
And he is the first person we know of who is overseeing the targeting.
Of conservative groups.
Right I don't think they're -- in the line dance back there and IRS headquarters probably more like the DC shake him off all lowest looks like a rogue employees in Cincinnati your ballot -- more rove -- -- singing in and detonating Carter hall for the question now is.
Who was Carter holds.
Boss yeah the key -- office and what links.
If any were there between the lawyers at IRS headquarters and EEO department.
And lawyers in the White House well let's just give you this quote this role is that half -- even just referred to.
I was essentially if one person because they had no autonomy -- no authority to act on applications with out.
Carter Paul's influence or input as we work our way up the ladder I keep going back to the Sunday shows -- Axelrod and -- said.
You do no one would be this dumb.
Would this stupid to do something like this politically in the administration in the administration saying.
You know how Smart we are we wouldn't mean this clumsy or dumb to do this.
Where's this heading -- Michelle.
Up and up an up and up up to the top of the trash heap of course.
And I think what's what's eerie but not surprising is that this same refrain.
That these top democratic operatives and tools are singing the same refrain that we heard during the Clinton Era I ever call.
Because say it it was such a the definitive moment for the -- -- Clinton administration that Mike McCurry said the same thing.
We're not that's still -- we wouldn't do anything like that it and you know I think what it is is air against in hubris in thinking that the that the rank and file employees that are being thrown out of the box here we're just going to sit back and taking.
Yeah or that enough time would pass by and you know the media would lose interest in the story -- of them.
And and we're not exactly sure why it's only Verizon.
But apparently this is how went down they went to the fights a court -- foreign international court where you need to go to get these types of subpoenas.
Both parties phone numbers were given.
Location data called generation not the actual content of the phone calls should Americans be fearful of this this morning.
Yes and -- I would urge every -- Go to my website at National Mall and dot com because I spent a lot of time last night.
This is a topic that I've been reporting on for years and I defended the NSA.
Program under the Bush Administration.
It started out as something called a special collections program and I think that the Genesis and the history.
Of how it began is important and what it's evolved into an morphed into under the Obama administration -- either two very different.
Programs rooted in two.
Very different agendas I believe remember that during the bush years he was very committed to the war on terror.
And in the years when all of the left wing civil rights -- for going back and Nanette.
Once these leaks came out about what he was doing.
They pretty much treated him as if he was an international human right is criminal for doing it but.
It was very much more circumscribed.
And as I said he was committed to doing this with the goal.
Stopping and preventing.
Future on the children's do you.
So you understand the goal here I don't get the goal here now can you get a 121 million customers I know -- Verizon.
And -- well -- Leon -- all become wells.
Yet we don't know that it's just Verizon what we know is that somebody leaked this top secret classified information about Verizon.
And I'm not going to jump on the an -- bashing bandwagon right away but what I want to emphasize here is that under the what -- Obama administration has done.
Is -- massively more expansive than what bush did because.
Bush was concerned with overseas phone calls -- -- -- from America to remote place is in Afghanistan.
And in fact under his program they actually uncovered a terrorist plot with Iman -- the question here -- Obama administration is it that he has to cleared the war on terror I just gonna say yeah I think you're just gonna say that there's no war on terror why does he need 99 Verizon.
I thought I forward to the next press conference.
I was very shocked to find out a news report this morning as the NSA was monitoring the 121 million customers -- I heard and I got a good start of the the bottom of yeah -- -- learning today that the blame bush card of course -- we are all being rosy as it turns out.
Michelle Malkin join us today from Colorado Springs thank you very much always lively when you -- -- There is -- Carville last night I know that was seen him act I -- -- active life we all -- unfortunately so how can you protect here.
