An Interview With Barack Obama About The IRS Scandal, AP Phone Records And Benghazi

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Obama InterviewDoes Barack Obama have any idea what is going on in the government that he is supposedly running?  Scandals are erupting all around him, and he supposedly was not aware that any wrongdoing had taken place in any of those instances.  It is almost as if every major government agency has gone rogue and Obama has no idea what the heck they are doing.  According to Obama, he often doesn’t learn what those under his authority are up to until he sits down and turns on the news.  Should we believe him when he claims ignorance over and over again, or is Obama just trying to protect himself?  Whether you are a Republican, a Democrat or an Independent, the revelations that have come out in recent days about the IRS, the seizure of AP phone records and Benghazi should be very alarming to you.  Taken together, these scandals paint a picture of a federal government that has become drunk with power, and no matter where you may fall on the political spectrum that is something that nobody should want.

Posted below is a fictional interview that I have created between an anonymous reporter and Barack Obama about the IRS scandal, the seizure of AP phone records, Benghazi and other sensitive topics.  Yes, this interview is a bit absurd, but so is the notion that Barack Obama is completely ignorant about so many important things that are going on inside his own government…

REPORTER: “President Obama, the IRS has publicly admitted that they were specifically targeting patriot groups and Tea Party organizations for ‘extra scrutiny’.  When did you first learn about this?”

Obama IRS Scandal

REPORTER: “But how is that possible?  We have now learned that the targeting of patriots and Tea Party groups began as early as March 2010.  The head of the IRS tax-exempt organizations division was informed about this targeting in June 2011, the chief counsel for the IRS knew about this targeting by August 2011, the deputy commissioner for services and enforcement knew about this targeting by March 2012, and IRS Commissioner Steven T. Miller knew about this targeting by May 2012.  Throughout this period of time, the IRS repeatedly lied to Congress when they were specifically asked about the targeting of conservative groups.  Are you claiming that nobody from your administration ever had any contact with anyone from the IRS about this?”

Obama Funny

REPORTER: That is what the IRS was claiming at first.  But now the Washington Post is reporting that “IRS officials at the agency’s Washington headquarters sent queries to conservative groups asking about their donors and other aspects of their operations, while officials in the El Monte and Laguna Niguel offices in California sent similar questionnaires to tea-party-affiliated groups.”  That would seem to indicate that this was being coordinated on a nationwide level by someone at the IRS.  Would you care to comment on that?

Obama Investigation

REPORTER: But you were just commenting on it.  Don’t you think that the American people deserve the truth about this?

Obama I Know Nothing

REPORTER: Okay, let’s switch gears.  Did you know that the Justice Department was spying on AP reporters just months before the 2012 election?  Did you know that two months of cellular, office and home telephone records were secretly obtained without any explanation last April and May?

Obama Press

REPORTER: The Associated Press is now the enemy?  Without a free and independent media, what would keep us from descending into tyranny?

Obama Tyranny

REPORTER: But shouldn’t we be alarmed when government agencies target specific groups of people for their political beliefs?  Breitbart is reporting that the EPA “has routinely charged conservative and watchdog groups fees that the agency has waived for the mainstream media and ‘green’ groups”.  Do you know anything about this?

Obama Teleprompter

REPORTER: I understand that these are tougher questions than you normally get from the media.  But I think that the American people deserve some answers.  For example, would you like to discuss Benghazi?

Obama Benghazi

REPORTER: Very funny Mr. President.  What about the Fast and Furious scandal?  Would you be willing to talk about that?

Obama Fast And Furious

REPORTER: Are there any difficult subjects that you would be willing to discuss?  I have questions here about the Secret Service prostitution scandal, Solyndra, the new NSA spy center out in Utah, government ammunition stockpiling, the NDAA, drone strikes, Jeremiah Wright, Tony Rezko and Bill Ayers.  Would you be willing to answer any of those questions?

      Reporter : Mr. Obama What about France, what do you think about Hollande ?

      Yes, I would like to take a Hollande to France , i could use another round of golf. We just don’t get enough of them.

  • Mustard Seed

    I needed a good laugh :)…. sad thing is, your fiction is closer to the truth than the reporting of the MSM.

  • K

    The last President that told the public any truth at all was Kennedy. You see what happened to him. Since then you have been lied to and manipulated. The only difference is up through Clinton, there were just certain areas, they were not allowed to be in charge of. This President and Jr. were and are, total puppets. So did all these agencies go rogue? Or are they just aware that, the President is in charge of nothing.


      I am not to sure about Kennedy, I think he had his shady side to. I believe he was done in because he wanted to get rid of the Federal Reserve. Our elected officials just play games with each other so they can get re-elected.they don’t care about the country. If they spent as much time playing games they might get something done.What is sad is we have become a fascist state, that happened when they bailed out the banksters.

    POPO’S Had it and is FUMING MAD !!!

    Mexican volcano spewing ash and lava threatens town as officials prepare to evacuate thousands

    Experts have noted increased seismic activity from Popocatepetl volcano in Mexico in recent days
    The active 17,886ft volcano near Mexico City has been spewing ash, lava and plumes of steam
    Soldiers and federal police deployed to area amid fears a major eruption could be “imminent” Mexico’s National Disaster Prevention Center has raised alert level to Yellow Phase 3
    Nature is getting Ready this volcano last erupted 1,100 year ago. POPO will shake the Globe !

    the end…

    • El Pollo de Oro

      Another volcano with a very bad temper is Monte Vesuvio near Naples, Italy (the one that destroyed Pompeii in 79 AD). If that one threatens Napoli and necessitates a mass evacuation on the part of the Italian government, that will have a major economic impact in the third largest economy in Europe (Italia) and therefore, an economic impact all around the world.

      Il fine.

    “You have displeased me.” Priceless. Never thought I would laugh about this stuff. Thanks Michael.

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      I don’t do funny articles very often, but today I felt inspired. 🙂


      • Graham

        You need to feel “inspired” more often. The humorous stuff spreads the widest, hence more people get an entertaining look at what is often the reality of it all.

        I’ve noted in recent months that a number of the more obscure UK sites that I follow are covering your stories. The original author and link is always referenced.

        I wonder how long it will be before many “exposure” type sites create closer ties. Whilst the volume of such sites is plentiful, the main objective of the MSM seems to be to keep them fragmented.

        I note a lote of Anderson Cooper’s time lately has been addressing what the alternate media is saying and doing. Clearly a recognised threat to the half truth/no truth garbage the MSM often peddles out.

  • saintmatty

    The reason that most politicians are first and foremost attorneys. They have no problem lying to your face and they also know how to not answer questions. Take a lesson from the “Slick Willy” himself.

  • northernconservative

    Reminds me a bit of Clint Eastwood and the empty chair interview….lol. Of course the libs all thought he had gone senile, but only because they have no sense of humor about themselves. This was great.

    F’ing Nazis. Tyranny ALWAYS comes from the left

    • DownWithLibs

      But according to Homeland Security, DOJ, Secret Service, Gary2, etc., it’s conservative Christians and Jews that are the issue!? Hmmm, what to believe.

    • Goldminer

      Not always. Hitler was a right wing nationalist.

      The NAZIs were a blend of German Socialist partys and Nationalist Party. To stand against Marxism. Things kind of went to pieces after Hitler took over and kicked out or murdered all the socialists in the party.

      No I am not a Liberal or anything like that. Just keeping facts straight.

  • Colin


    Are you interested in having a conversation with people who are from “the other side of the aisle”, or have you come to the conclusion that these people don’t matter – that they are “barbarians” – and that what you have to say is for an audience that thinks and believes as you do?

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      You presume that I am on one side of the aisle.

      I hammer both parties very hard.

      But that also does not mean that I am “in the middle”.

      I believe that Obama, his entire cabinet and almost everyone in Congress should immediately resign.

      So what does that make me?


      • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

        And are you not very seriously alarmed by the horrific abuses of government power that have been exposed in recent days?

        No matter which “side of the aisle” you are on, you should be absolutely outraged by what has happened.


        • smallergovnow

          great and funny (also sad) post michael. you could throw in boston and libya into the list of grievances as well… oh and did you hear what the idiot leader of the NAACP said yesterday? tea party “admitted racist organization”. i about blew a gasket… these people are ruthless ideologs…

      • Louise in MO

        I think it makes you an informed and fair minded American that reports FACTS. We are free to draw our own conclusions.

    • das

      I long gave up on trying to have conversations with the left. Theres no point anymore, they are too far gone. Sad part is, I only vote right because its always the lesser of two evils

    • Bad Kitty Cat

      Our polititians today (and in all “Western” countries) are neither “left” nor “right”. Personally, I am middle of the road, and can see both points of view… so why do they ALL disappoint me? They are acting in their own interests; the political spectrum is just their cover story.

      And as I believe we all have the right to disagree, this is shocking.

    • Graham


      The line that “divides” (aisle) does just that, little else. When people come to realise this, they will see the “exact same hand is at play”. The “aisle” simply allows for different parts of the same agenda to take shape.

      In a sense, consider what each “side” tends to focus on the most. Think foreign versus domestic. They are both part of the same picture, but require slightly different consensus.

      The people are used as puppets in order to deliver that consensus. Many refer to it as “divide and conquer”. Also watch for the bait being “switched” deliberately to create even more confusion.

      The confused are easily controlled. Pull back from their “Matrix” and you will see the bigger picture.

      • Louise in MO

        There has never been a Perfect administration, but some are definitely worse than others. And, the Obama administration is not Democrat or Republican.

        It is first and foremost a fascist/socialist state. If we get over this administration with any freedoms left, I will be very surprised.

        At this point, a REAL democrat or republican administration sounds like heaven to me.

  • B Fast

    God knows I’m no fan of Obama, not that I think that Romney would do much better. But the last thing the US needs right now is impeachment!

    • BonusGift

      I disagree, impeachment would at least be a well deserved start.

    • smallergovnow

      no impeachment means no justice, just like john corzine. that is one of the fundamental problems with our TBTF corporate state…

  • seth datta

    How did he get voted in? I mean, he lied about two really basic things initially, which breaks trust in a person. He lied about being an American and he lied about his religion. SO I guess people interpret this being ‘a man you can trust’?

  • Gorilla in the city

    The POTUS is the most powerful individual who walk this planet. He knows what events to take place and how they will be executed. He may have a surprise on how the event will develop but essentially aware the WHAT, WHY, WHERE, WHOM and WHEN. He even know what the headline of the story in the newspaper next week. Guess what, when the event of 311 in Japan happenned, Obama was briefed weeks in advance So, if he plays dumb when posed with questions, its just part of the act.

    Now you are informed.

  • chilller

    Interesting correlation between the major solar flares and the scandals….they just keep popping off, one right after another.

  • 3xlt

    This is “classic” material Michael.

    Extremely funny, yet acute, simple and spot on. You have a good future ahead my friend.

    Definately reference this piece on any future opportunities and “You’re Hired Sir”.

    Please give us more….

    Obama is an illegal immigrant voted in by the immigrants.

    The most direct attack on America is the expansion of legal immigration to this country. Almost half the people currently living in the US are here as a result of the Immigration Reform Act of 1965. The work and student visa program, green cards and refugee programs make illegal immigration look puny.

    These brainwashed Eurotrash socialists and third world bottom-feeders have no history or tradition of natural rights, and in fact have never heard of the concept, or understand that the Constitution was an attempt to codify those natural God-given rights. They do not understand what our Founders understood – that men who are drawn to centers of power are by nature the worst among us, and that laws are needed to keep them in check. They do not understand or respect that the Constitution was written as a witness against the fallen nature of man, and that it is as timeless man’s nature, which has not changed, and will not be out-dated until that nature has become angelic.

    The descendants of America’s founders are being replaced with a foreign people, and this was by design. The American gun-owning, freedom-loving middle-class was the biggest obstacle to One-World-Government-equally-distributed-misery plans of the international bankster cartel. It was no accident that American wages started stagnating in 1970 and have decreased ever since. Simple supply and demand. Since that wasn’t enough, more jobs were moved overseas and more foreigners were moved in to take the jobs still here.

    Ben Johnson said this about the The 1965 Immigration Act in an article for FrontPageMagazine in 2002:

    The 1965 Immigration Act: Anatomy of a Disaster By: Ben Johnson

    FrontPageMagazine dot com | Tuesday, December 10, 2002

    “Despite the overwhelming assurances of the bill’s supporters, the 1965 Immigration Reform Act has remade society into the image its critics most feared. Immigration levels topping a million a year will increase U.S. population to 400 million within 50 years. Meanwhile, exponents of multiculturalism insist new arrivals make no effort to assimilate; to do so would be “genocidal,” a notion that makes a mockery of real genocides. Instead, long-forgotten grudges are nursed against the white populace. Native citizens take to flight as the neighborhoods around them, the norms in their hometowns, are debased for the convenience of low-paid immigrants and well-heeled businessmen. All the while, indigenous paychecks drop through lower wages and higher taxes collected to provide social services for immigrants. And this only takes into account legal immigration.

    “Americans must realize demographic trends are not inevitable, the product of mysterious forces beyond their control. Today’s population is the result of yesterday’s immigration policy, and that policy is as clearly broken as its backers’ assurances were facetious. A rational policy will only come about when native Americans place the national interest above liberal howls of ‘prejudice’ and ‘tribalism.'”

    Its only gotten worse since Ben penned this article.

    At a time when unemployment is at an all time high, “Conservative” Senator Ted Cruz wants to expand legal immigration, most of who will vote Democrat or Big Government Republican once they get here and take your job.

    This is a war against the American People and Culture, and the Americans are loosing badly and don’t even understand why. Most Americans blame only illegal immigration which is a fraction of the problem, and miss the bigger picture of legal immigrants.

    I often hear people ask the question of how America became such a divided Nation. Now you know.

    No, no!!! His makeup is GREAT and Air Force One is ready to take him, that ghastly family and Ben Ghazi on vacation at the drop of a pin!! He is doing JUST GREAT!!!!

    Did you know that The Wizard of Oz is a political satire about monetary reform?

    The wizard is Congress, and the yellow brick road is the gold standard.

    We are certainly living in a dream, but we are about to wake up to reality….the nightmare of a collapsing world economy where whole countries go bankrupt and people are jobless, homeless, and very, very hungry.

    We’ll see how much of “politics as usual” appeases the masses then.

  • TX4Life

    Don’t worry, Angelina Jolie and other celebrities are doing everything within their power to keep the media’s attention off their lord and savior and these scandals. Their love knows no bounds.

    • Graham

      Miss Jolie has inadvertently brought the focus onto the corporate control of human gene patents. Watch Google take a slice of the action. Rumour has it they are merging with the “Build-a-Burger” group.

      By deception and splicing, thy shall do war (against the people). Remember.. who dares wins. Time for a peaceful revolution? Monsanto and Bill Gates (et al) have a lot to answer for. Checkout “Svalbard”. Their time will come, soon.

  • And why would the IRS harass anti-Obama people on their own? Why would a department do that? We can all b|tch and moan, but we won’t do anything about it. And this black leftist is going to get off Scott-free like he always has because libs are insane and rightwingers are cowards.

  • Dapandico

    According to Obama, he often doesn’t learn what those under his authority are up to until he sits down and turns on the news.
    0bama watches the evil FOX News?? Sure as heck is getting news from the alphabet networks.

  • peace angel

    That was great, Michael. I would expect an audit anyway for making this up.

    I would ask him who in the Bilderburg group is running the world and the US while he campaigns and parties and vacations into the billions of dollars and who exactly bought that 40 million dollar safe haven for his family in Hawaii?

    I would ask him if he plans to kill the DHS whistleblower or the Canada Free Press owner who says he will crash the economy any day now and destroy the US dollar and who outed the Cyber warriors who track us with our money.

    I would ask him if he is the antichrist or just a Bilderburg puppet. Oklahomans have thought from day one and they still do that he is indeed the antichrist and today as Isreal and others take us closer and closer to WWIII it is making me a believer too.

    • Graham

      Obongo from the Congo would likely consider the “Build-a-Burger” group to be a training franchise of McDonalds.

      Where you see a “shadow”… always look for its “source”. Obama is little more than a shadow (and I do not refer to his skin colour). The source isn’t difficult to find.

      Love the line about “conspiracy theorists”. Those who have invested the time to research all the facts call it “direct history”. Forget the theories and closely examine the conspiracies. It’s amazing what comes to light.. whilst lurking in the shadows 🙂

    • Louise in MO

      I don’t believe Obama is the Antichrist. However, I think there is a good chance that he is the false prophet of which the Bible speaks.
