Sarah Palin calls for accountability, full investigation on IRS scandal

Following the now-standard method of getting her message out, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin posted a message on her Facebook wall Friday weighing in on Benghazi and the IRS admission that it intentionally targeted tea party groups.

She asks, “Is it any wonder why Americans are so distrustful of D.C.?”

“Between the Benghazi cover-up and the IRS targeting Obama’s political opponents, we see the corruption at the heart of big government,” Palin wrote.

Palin calls on House Speaker John Boehner to launch a select committee on Benghazi to further investigate what happened during the attack and the State Department and White House response.

On Benghazi, Speaker Boehner must create a Select Committee with full investigative and subpoena authority to get to the bottom of the cover-up.”

A call that echoes the effort of 140 members of Congress who signed on Thursday in support of a letter to Boehner calling for such a committee.

Gov. Palin’s commentary in its entirety:

Let the Light Shine

Today we learned that our government targeted and harassed conservative Americans who simply wanted to be involved in the national discussion. Is it any wonder why Americans are so distrustful of D.C.? I’m sure President Obama is grateful for all the help the IRS gave his reelection campaign, but, still, you have to wonder how the bureaucrats who tried to pull this off can sleep at night.

So many Americans knew this was happening, but many felt defenseless and even helpless against a government that seems to roll along without accountability or sense of obligation to the people it’s supposed to serve. These Americans were mocked for being concerned about this, but now we see light shining on the truth, finally.

This IRS revelation is another step in the unraveling of the Obama administration’s self-proclaimed “hope and change.” Between the Benghazi cover-up and the IRS targeting Obama’s political opponents, we see the corruption at the heart of big government.

Americans should remember that this same corrupt IRS will be in charge of enforcing Obamacare. And this same inept and corrupt government will supposedly secure our now unsecured borders in advance of immigration reform and will implement a completely ethical and non-political IPAB panel to make life and death health care decisions for you and your family.

Forgive me for not trusting these big government promises any more than I trust the White House’s latest Benghazi spin or the IRS’ fairness.

Despite all of this, I still believe that this “fundamental transformation of America” is temporary. This attempted transformation into a disheartened, weakened, unrecognizable nation is so far below anything Americans deserve. It becomes permanent only if we throw up our hands and surrender to the corruption and cover-ups.

We must demand more light shine on all that’s transpiring in D.C.’s self-absorbed bubble. On the IRS scandal, we must have accountability and a full investigation. On Benghazi, Speaker Boehner must create a Select Committee with full investigative and subpoena authority to get to the bottom of the cover-up. Keep the faith, friends.

      When did this lying quitter have a say in anything.How's her daughter's marriage?

  • Keith

    Keep the ball rolling, she is right on with her statements ,even those that disagree based on their warped principles ,will see the truth in these matters,

  • Rob

    Heres the problem….they're liars. To subpoena them to speak under oath does no good. There is no honor. It is not their fault. There are evil and dishonest people everywhere. The problem is with the American people not standing up and demanding change. Our founding fathers old have taken care of this administration long long ago. Every time I think about our representatives opting themselves out of government mandated health care and the people of the US not even flinching about it, it makes me want to vomit. I hate to say it but this is what complacent ignorance gets you.

      Back in 1983 Reagan invaded Lebanon and AND HIS BRILLIANT PLANS put our marines in a concrete building.Which the Arabs blew up in one day kIlling 242 marines.

      We then left Lebabnon at a cost of a few more dead GI's and 100 million dollars.

      The Republibot CLOWNGRESS never investigated that FIASCO OR even thought OF IT.

      LATER REAGAN SAID HE WAS SORRY.WHAT HYPOCRITS THESE PHONEYS ARE INCLUDING YOU POSTERS.

    You mean the IRS targeted conservatives? It must be a simple mistake. It certainly has nothing to to with the current administration.

    Wa-DC is our nations Cesspool and has been for a long time.

    It's so bad & rotten, it has infected most of our media, who we were at one time were able to depend on telling us when it was time to have the Septic Tank pumped out, but not now…

    There's a Damn good reason we have term limit's for our President's. And I can think of roughly 500+ good reasons we need term limit's for Crapitol Hill…

    This article started out with the IRS and then degenerated into another Benghazi screed.

    Sarah Palin again. She is the poster child of power abuse. She does not have a conservative record. Her record is not fiscally responsible. Look at the record not her spewing rhetoric. Look beyond drill baby drill and API and NRA propaganda. Anyone who is truly a fiscal conservative would be sickened by her spend spend spend and borrow record.

      Just want to ask you one question! What has Obama done for you? As soon as he was elected in Office the second time,all of my co-workers including myself noticed a deduction out of our paychecks! Was this money just taken out of our paychecks because we are Republican? Or was it also taken out of yours? If so, then He lied about decreasing taxes! And I have never ask a Democrat what they thought of Benghazi? Do you not like Soldiers? Or were you concerned about them also? Just wondering!
