Dan Pfeiffer Emerges As The Brazen Mouthpiece To Assure Us All Is Well In The White House

Dan PfeifferHe’s young, he wears expensive suits, he looks sharp – and he’s bravely come forth to tell us that no one in the Obama Administration’s higher levels has done anything wrong.  Not one thing.  In six flaming scandals.  They’re all either ignorant of what was going on or they’re all innocent. 

I feel better already.  With so many boiling pots it’s impossible to keep up with all of it.  So, today I’ve grabbed the Washington Times’ article on Sarah Hall Ingram, who headed up the IRS’ Inquisition of certain conservative groups’ applications for tax-exempt status.  Oh, and you might be interested to know that she’s just been promoted to oversee the IRS’ enforcement of the Obamacare law.  From the Times:

A besieged White House dug in its heels Sunday and defended figures at the center of the unfolding Internal Revenue Service scandal while reiterating that President Obama knew nothing of the misdeeds inside the agency.

White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer, appearing on four Sunday morning political talk shows, offered strong support for Sarah Hall Ingram, who led the agency’s tax-exempt division as it admittedly targeted conservative groups. She recently was promoted to chief of the health care reform office, tasked with implementing “Obamacare.”

Wait a sec, here.  Who’s under seige?  Where’s the aggrieved party?  The White House?  Really?  So, who launched this Inquisition in the first place?

Critics of the administration expect many more heads to roll as the true scope and intent of the IRS actions come to light, but Mr. Pfeiffer on Sunday strongly defended Ms. Ingram.

“No one has suggested that she did anything wrong yet,” Mr. Pfeiffer said on “Fox News Sunday.”

“Before everyone in this town convicts this person in the court of public opinion with no evidence, let’s actually get the facts and make decisions after that. There’s nothing that suggests she did anything wrong,” he said.

Five’ll get you ten that Mr. Pfeiffer is, or was, a high dollar lawyer somewhere, before he was called in to put out this fire.  And don’t forget:  This is the guy who already told us that any question about where the President was during the eight or nine hours long 9/11 Benghazi seige is “irrelevant”.  Yes, indeedy.  And by the way, questions regarding Mr. Obama’s whereabouts are also “offensive”.  Pfeiffer’s got panache, you have to admit.  More than I have.  He’s pretty offensive, himself, come to think of it.

Mr. Pfeiffer added that a top-down investigation of the IRS will examine Ms. Ingram’s 2009 to 2012 tenure as head of the tax-exempt division.

Other IRS authorities have paid the price for what officials on both sides of the aisle, along with a host of others, have described as outrageous behavior. Steven Miller, former acting IRS commissioner questioned by Congress last week, was pushed out by the president.

Ms. Ingram’s replacement, Joseph Grant, has announced his retirement despite taking the job only a few weeks ago…

Please forgive me if I cannot muster any sympathy for tyrants who wield absolute power over the most powerful law enforcement agency on the face of the earth.  I fully understand the Constitutional necessity of taxation.  But what is alleged here is nothing less than abject selective despotism and intimidation.  We shall see how this one progresses. I have no expectations of justice prevailing. 

Meanwhile Mr. Pfeiffer can run his brazen interference for Barack Obama in the very Court of Public Opinion he seems to disdain.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.

  1. John L. Work –

    Great commentary piece! I too, share your pessimistic outlook, as you aptly say:

    “……..We shall see how this one progresses. I have no expectations of justice prevailing……”

    You have good reason to be on the cautiously optimistic downside, as the devil never runs out of lies: Neither do Obama’s disciples:
