Former President Barack Obama’s bitter other half is at it again. Just when you think the former first lady’s deep well of racial resentment has run dry, her headline-generating grievances gush forth anew. Gripe springs eternal.
This week, Michelle Obama told Oprah Winfrey’s bestie Gayle King on CBS News that “many of us still live in fear” after the conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in the George Floyd case. By “us,” she apparently means black Americans. But Obama (estimated net worth with her husband: $70 million-$135 million) and King (yearly salary at CBS: $5.5 million) aren’t just any black Americans. Their twin self-delusions are a sight to behold.
“(Going) to the grocery store” strikes fear in her heart, Mrs. O bellyached. (Never mind the lifetime Secret Service protection and tax-subsidized travel costs she receives to the tune of up to $500,000 per year.)
Just “walking our dogs” chills the bone, King chimed in. (Never mind the private security detail she travels with, like so many celebrities in her strata do.)
A U.S. Tax Court judge ordered the Internal Revenue Service to disclose whether it brought a criminal inquiry against the Clinton Foundation.
The tax agency’s Whistleblower Office said in the past that no such inquiry was conducted by the Criminal Investigation division, but Judge David Gustafson insisted the claim “was not supported by the administrative record and thus constituted an abuse of discretion,” according to an April 22 ruling obtained by Just The News.
Gustafson sent the case back to the IRS Whistleblower Office to “explore” a “gap” in the agency’s records.
“The WO [Whistleblower Office] must further investigate to determine whether CI [Criminal Investigation division] proceeded with an investigation based on petitioners’ information and collected proceeds,” the judge said. “It seems clear we should remand the case to the WO so that it can explore this gap.”
Gustafson added that a trial pertaining to “dereliction of duty by the IRS” will not take place.
