President Obama's Department of Justice has made it official: Lois Lerner, the IRS executive who invoked the Fifth Amendment to avoid incriminating herself when questioned about her role in targeting conservative groups, will face no criminal charges. Worse, even the one IRS reform that enjoys broad bipartisan support in Congress - a ban on the IRS trying to assess gift tax on contributions to non-profit organizations, which they infamously attempted against conservative donors - has stalled in the Senate after passing the House unanimously early in the year.

Media Not Interested in Obamacare Disaster

Subdued by distracting media elites chattering about Joe Biden's non-campaign for president, behind the curtain of the alleged "debacle" and "catastrophic dysfunction" of the Republican House Speaker race and swept under the carpet embroidered with the words, "Trump Says Bush Responsible for 9/11," is news that should be dominating newspaper front pages across the country.
