Nearly Impossible To Get Fired At The IRS For Tax Evasion

More than 99 percent of the thousands of IRS employees investigated for violating federal tax laws in the last five years avoided termination and continued enforcing other Americans’ tax collections, according to an analysis by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.

The IRS fired only 74 of 9,176 workers investigated for tax noncompliance from October 2011 to September 2016. Another 280 were allowed to retire or resign as a result of those misconduct investigations, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) Inspector General (IG).

With tensions between the United States and Iran mounting over Tehran’s test-firing of mid-range ballistic missiles, Iran’s hardliners appear emboldened. They talk now of having a chance of winning their country’s presidential election in May – or at least turning incumbent Hassan Rouhani into a lame-duck president, if he does manage to secure reelection.

Hillary Clinton should absolutely not run for president in 2020. And Democrats should stop her if she tries

There’s a purposely provocative piece in Politico magazine this week that aims to make the case that Hillary Clinton is going to run for president for a third time in 2020. Citing the scaling back of the Clinton Global Initiative and her plans to write a seventh book as evidence, Matt Latimer concludes: “Yes, barring some calamity, Clinton is running. And this brave columnist will go one step further. Not only will Clinton run again, she has an excellent shot at getting the Democratic Party nomination again.”

Wrong. And not just wrong on Clinton running again. But wrong on the fact that if she runs she could or would have the inside track on the Democratic nomination.

Four key Republicans could vote against Puzder for labor secretary

Andrew Puzder, the fast-food executive whom President Trump nominated to be labor secretary, emerged Monday as Democrats’ last, best hope of defeating one of Trump’s Cabinet choices as four key Republicans are on the fence about his nomination.

The unenthusiastic reception from the Republican lawmakers comes after weeks of intense criticism from Democrats and liberal groups over workplace violations at Puzder’s restaurants Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr., sexually suggestive ads featuring bikini-clad models eating burgers, and his opposition to wage regulations. Puzder has also been accused of domestic abuse — an accusation that was later recanted — and has acknowledged hiring an undocumented worker for his home.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange faces an uncertain future after Ecuador’s presidential election

The first rule of being a good houseguest is knowing not to overstay your welcome. But Julian Assange was never one for manners—or morals.

Since the Wikileaks founder was offered asylum by Ecuador president Rafael Correa in 2012, Assange has watched the world change dramatically from his tiny room at the country’s embassy in London. In no small part due to Wikileaks’ disruptive involvement in the US presidential election, Assange’s public image has suffered significantly during this tumultuous period, too.
