If you think this sudden flood of illegal immigrant children is spontaneous, think again.According to a “help wanted” Request For Information (RFI) posted onFedBizOpps.gov, the feds were looking for vendors to help escort unaccompanied alien children (UAC) in JANUARY of this year...

The question is, how in January, did the U.S. government know up to 65,000 unaccompanied illegal alien children would be arriving?Please send me evidence that this is not an orchestrated invasion, and I will remove my tinfoil hat.

Good morning from Rapid City!

We were delayed for 2 hours by a flat tire on I-90, 15 miles from the nearest town. Thank God I belong to AAA. They got a guy there in 25 minutes, he put on the spare, then we followed him back to Kimball, where they put on a new tire and balanced it.

Hertz was unable to do much because the closest office was in Rapid City, 200 miles away. Everyone behaved well, and while the tire was being put on we had ice cream while we sat at picnic tables in the shade at an old-time Ice cream/burger stand from the 1950's, which is about when I think it was built.

So anyone who contemplates driving in empty places, be sure you have AAA before you go!

Hertz will deduct the cost of the tire from my final bill.

All's well that ends well, and a good lesson for the kids on being prepared, as without AAA we would have been left begging for someone to come help us.

We are getting ready to go to Mt. Rushmore as soon as certain people wake up.

Taranto deserves combat pay for trying to make sense of Chaitred;


The Atlantic's James Fallows argues that Iraq war hawks "might have the decency to shut the hell up on this particular topic for a while." Slate's Jamelle Bouie, writing in the second person, instructs Iraq hawks, "Given your role in building this catastrophe, you should be barred from public comment, since anything you could say is outweighed by the damage you've done." Washington Post columnist Katrina Vanden Heuvel, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, and many others have reiterated the point. This meta belief about who should be allowed to argue about Iraq, more than any actual argument about Iraq itself, has become the left's main way of thinking about the issue.

Also, we stayed overnight in North Sioux City, which is now being flooded. This explains the numerous convoys we met on I -90, heading towards the area which was supposed to flood.

I 29 is closed. They expect portions to be flooded today, and they are sandbagging across the highway under an overpass to try and keep the water back.

anonamom

commenter at Megan McCardle's article explaining why she thinks it unlikely that the missing IRS emails are a conspiracy.
This fellow kinda disagrees, I think:


If it was a conspiracy involving Lois Lerner, you would know by her refusal to answer any questions. Instead of explaining things under oath, putting suspicions to rest, she would plead the fifth amendment, which protects her against self-incrimination, such as in discussing ones role in the commission of a crime.
Our system requires the proof of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, she is unquestionably hiding something illegal, or she would be abusing the fifth amendment, which protects her against being forced to testify against herself. It is up the Government to legally discover exactly what she is hiding, acquire evidence and file the appropriate charges.
These emails, if they ever existed, and it is becoming very clear that they once did, would be the smoking gun that could encompass the entire Obama Senior Administration, if not Obama himself.
You can bet your bottom dollar, if they existed, the most powerful man in the world, had more reason than anyone else to ensure they disappeared. And well...they did.
Draw your own conclusions, and while you are thinking about it, consider this as well. Obama said they investigated the IRS and found NO Corruption, "not a smidgen", when people were opening claiming the IRS was working with the White House criminally in discrimination of conservatives and libertarians, in particularly Lois Lerner. Ask yourself; If the WH did an investigation involving communication with Lois Lerner and the White House Senior Staff, as claimed, wouldn't they have had to review her email communications with the WH? Wouldn't those emails be front and center in any competent investigation? The very ones that are now missing?
Makes me wonder if, instead of performing an investigation, they used the "internal investigation" as an opportunity to perform a "clean-up" operation for self-preservation purposes.
When you follow the evidence trail, paying attention to known facts, opportunity and motive, along with recognizing, Obama has proven he has no issue with lying to us in self interest, I would think most people would think it's long past time to bring in a Special Prosecutor and Independent Investigators with the power to seize documents, hard drives and any other records. We MUST resolve the serious question regarding if we have a President who cheated in the last election, violated his Oath of Office and committed crimes against the people of the USA! And respond accordingly!

In a court of law, missing or destroyed evidence is seen as in the worst possible light. The judge would so instruct the jury to see it that way.

James D.

Here's a question. Since the House and Senate are working on appropriations bills right now, why not amend the bill funding the IRS to zero out all funds for employee bonuses, conferences, travel, etc and allocate it all towards document retention, training programs for employees on complying with federal records preservation laws, and upgrades to the email servers and IT departments?

Operation Choke BOzo is going to have to be more artful than that.

We need to think of the most efficient method of breaking BOzo's pen and disconnecting his phone and refusal to take up bills funding specific parts of agencies would be a good way to start.

Rep Diane Black has come so close to nailing Koskinen.

She made him testify that the way that the IRS realized that there was a problem with Lerner's emails was a breakdown in the pattern of emails. Meaning the period of time in question showed far fewer emails/activity from her than the pattern would suggest. This alerted them to further investigative the cause of the break in pattern.

It was in this investigation that they found the hard drive must have failed during the period in question.

Here is my question:

If the discrepancy was discovered because of a break in a pattern, what server were the emails prior to the break stored on?

From the Strassel piece, I hadn't realized that the e-mails disappeared right after Camp's original inquiry in 2011. How convenient.

Now the IRS says her e-mails have been cleaned up found.

GMax

Jay Seculo was on Greta and saying that the focus should be currently on this Nikole Flax character, since she appeared to be the runner from the IRS commissioner and the White House. The White House and Treasury and Justice should be made to search for e-mail traffic from or to her, and turn it over to allow a rebuilding of the "lost" e-mails.

Want to bet me that the White House has a similar catastrophic failure of data retention when they are pinned down as well?

The problem is that all those Flax visits to the White House make it likely that the most, umm, sensitive communications were verbal and not recorded anywhere.

I posted that here a few days ago, Jimmy.

The likely sequence of events seems worth considering.

  1. Numerous email conversations between Lerner, FEC, DoJ, Schumer, Levin, Cummings, etc.

  2. Slow-walking the tea party applications.

  3. Realizing it will come out.

  4. Staging the Q&A.

  5. Archiving of incriminating emails. (Deleted from the server.)

  6. Letter from Camp.

  7. Destruction of hard drive. (Archives gone.)

  8. Wait six months. All backup tapes free of archived/deleted emails.

Whoever suggested checking her google searches for "how to destroy a hard drive" seems pretty smart to me.

Did you see the question I posed, Ext?

They could only know there was a break in the pattern of emails if they are privy to the emails prior to the break.

How were those emails backed up in such a way that the archive tape system didn't auto delete them based on their age.

Regarding the minimum wage: In Rome its whether you get a table of Americans or a table of Europeans. Ask the waiters who they make their living off of - Yanks or Euros.

Extraneus

Yeah, TK. In 2011, every employee showed a break in pattern. That was when the mailbox limit went from 150MB to 500MB, meaning their box started growing without needing clean-up/archiving until it reached the new limit, which might have been a year or more later.

How were those emails backed up in such a way that the archive tape system didn't auto delete them based on their age.

The way I understand it (and the way it is in Lotus Notes) is that when your mailbox fills up, you have to delete stuff. This deletes it from the server. In the process of deleting stuff from the server, you can (but aren't required to) archive the deleted stuff, storing it on your local hard drive, so that if you ever needed to go back and find something, you could.

The back-ups supposedly were rolling backups, meaning that the oldest tape (six months old) is used for today's backup. Tomorrow, the oldest tape is six months old, and is used for tomorrow's backup. Etc.

Threadkiller

Kristen looks like she is hiding a couple puppets.

Extraneus

No.

Each person has a "mailbox" on the server, which gets backed up daily, but only for six months.

The mailbox has a size limit. (IRS limit went from 150MB to 500MB in 2011.) When you get close to the size limit, the system tells you to shrink your mailbox (delete attachments, older emails, etc.).

The deleting of the emails deletes them from the server. But! You can choose to archive them to your own local hard drive as well. (The archive is just a file that's formatted in a way that the email system can work with in addition to the normal database on the sever.)

Then, all you have to do is destroy your hard drive, wait six months, and your home free.

Jack is Back! (But in Typhus Hell)

The Italian TV (RAI 1 or Rai-uno, as they call it) was full of beautiful ladies this evening on the news, all members of parliment and ministers including the JOM politician of the year - Maria Elena Boschi - in tight fitting slacks and 6 inch high heels how the minium wage works in Italy.

I am watching the IRS Commissioner John Koskinen on CNN. I may be mistaken, but he appears to me to have the wisp of a shit eating grin on his face as he finishes up his last bit of testimony to Congress. If he is a Public Servant he certainly does not strike me as demonstrating the behavior of a "servant".

...the hard drive failed, and the information cannot be retrieved, it is regularly recycled and destroyed...I think it is very important to not leave any implication here that there was any attempt to get rid of evidence, even before the investigation started, but I think it is important to remind people that the evidence demonstrates that Miss Lerner worked very hard, the IT people worked very hard, the CI division people worked very hard to restore the E-mails.

I just ran the last bit of that thru the replay function to transcribe it, and the wisp of a shit eating grin stands out to me once again.

Stephanie tortoise not the hare

Even if the files were archived on her hard drive, wouldn't her hard drive be backed up to a server somewhere? When we used lotus notes we archived on the hard drives but every 3 days your hard drive was autobacked to a central server. Every 3 days was what was required to be able to cover all pc boxes in the building. All laptops were required to be synched and backed up to a server weekly as well. The server would send nastygrams if you weren't following protocols. Those nastygrams would also get copied to the notes admin and your direct report.

Sue

If the IG did a thorough investigation, why didn't he find out and report this catastrophic failure?

Threadkiller

Ext, how does that explain the recovered emails that were prior to the time period in question?

My head is pretty thick, so I apologize for not understanding.

Again, if there was a break in the pattern, I am led to conclude that the pattern was derived from data both prior to as well as post the alleged break.

Extraneus

2. It doesn't mean the various recipients' systems worked similarly.

Correct. And if DoJ, FBI, FEC or White House systems save yearly backups, a new administration in 2016 can recover all email to/from Lerner, Paz, Flax, etc., from any of those domains.

Extraneus

Even if the files were archived on her hard drive, wouldn't her hard drive be backed up to a server somewhere?

I don't think this is common practice. At a major IT company I know of, you could set up an automatic backup, but a) it's not mandatory, and b) you choose the files that get backed up.

Rick B

"and something was accomplished"

Perhaps a bit of political reinforcement regarding Democrat = LIAR but little else. Ryan could have achieved more by asking for a quick layman's review of IRS requirements for retention of documents followed by the IRS 'presumption of guilt' when they are not produced. His "I don't believe you." would have much greater political impact if it were preceded by "Based upon the record keeping demands the IRS places on citizens and its actions when those demands are not met, I do not believe you nor should anyone else."

jimmyk on iPad

"You could just hard delete the .pst file."

No, because deleted files are easily recoverable. You have to literally destroy the hard drive.

Stephanie tortoise not the hare

Another question...

Why wasn't she saving her archives to her designated server box (drive e f g h whatever) instead of to her local drive? There are no limits on your designated server drives other than server space and then they just tie another box to that server drive designation and continue on.

It would be against sarbox to archive anything to your local pc.

In my above post when I said local I was thinking local server not personal pc which is what got me thinking about local v local local.

daddy

Our Public Servants at the IRS:

Extraneus

Ext, how does that explain the recovered emails that were prior to the time period in question?

What they claimed was that those were recovered from other people at irs.gov, who she copied or corresponded with.

Again, if there was a break in the pattern, I am led to conclude that the pattern was derived from data both prior to as well as post the alleged break.

That whole "pattern" thing sounds like b.s. to me.

jimmyk on iPad

"I don't think this is common practice."

I think it is common for email, which normally resides on a server. That whole businesses of size limits and having to archive onto ones individual hard drive went the way of the dodo at least 8-10 years ago in my experience. Of course it wouldn't be shocking if a government office were 5-10 years behind the times, but not when the law requires records to be preserved.
