[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

>> Stephen: WELCOME TO THE

REPORT.

GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

THANK YOU, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

NATION, YOU KNOW, PLEASE...

>> STEPHEN, STEPHEN, STEPHEN!

tephen: THANK YOU, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

YOU PEOPLE ARE THE GREATEST.

FOLKS, IF YOU WATCH THE NEWS

LIKE I DO, YOU KNOW THAT THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS

EMBROILED IN SO MANY SCANDALS

THAT TRYING TO PICK WHICH ONE TO

REPORT ON IS LIKE TRYING TO PICK

WHICH OF YOUR CHILDREN TO

IMPEACH.

NOW, FOR THE RECORD, IT'S THE

ONE WHO ATE CHIPS IN DADDY'S

DEN.

YOU KNOW THE RULES.

THANKFULLY, CONGRESS MADE THE

DECISION FOR ME TODAY BY PUTTING

THE SPOTLIGHT ON THE IRS WHO

HAVE ADMITTED TO TARGETING TEA

PARTY GROUPS.

NOW, WE'VE ALREADY SEEN THE

RESIGNATION OF ACTING

COMMISSIONER STEVEN MILLER, BUT

HOUSE SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER

BELIEVES WE CAN DO MORE.

>> MY QUESTION ISN'T ABOUT WHO

IS GOING TO RESIGN.

MY QUESTION IS WHO IS GOING TO

JAIL OVER THIS SCANDAL.

>> Stephen: BOEHNER, OUT!

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

I'M SORRY.

I'M SORRY.

I'VE BEEN TOLD I HAVE ABOUT 25

MINUTES OF SHOW LEFT TO DO.

BUT, FOLKS, I'VE GOT TO SAY M.C.

TANGERINE DREAM IS RIGHT.

THIS IRS THING IS A JAILABLE

OFFENSE AND OBAMA KNOWS IT.

I MEAN JUST LISTEN TO WHAT HE

SAID TO JOE BIDEN.

>> DO YOU REALIZE WHAT THIS

MEANS?

SCANDAL AND PRISON.

THAT'S WHAT IT MEANS.

ONE OF US IS GOING TO JAIL.

WELL, IT'S NOT GOING TO BE ME.

>> Stephen: WAIT A SECOND.

WHO IS THAT SQUIRREL?

WHAT DOES HE KNOW?

IS HE CONNECTED TO ACORN?

I WANT HIS NUTS ON A PLATTER.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

WELL, FOLKS, TODAY CONGRESS

FINALLY HEARD FROM LOIS LERNER,

AN I.R.S. OFFICIAL AND I BELIEVE

SUPERMAN'S EX-GIRLFRIEND.

AND THE PERSON WHO FIRST

REVEALED THAT TEA PARTY GROUPS

WERE BEING TARGETED BY THE

I.R.S.

FINALLY, AFTER WEEKS OF

DEMANDING ANSWERS WE IN CABLE

NEWS CAN STOP FILLING 24 HOURS

WITH WILD, RIVETTING AND

ACTUALLY PLAUSIBLE THEORIES OF

INTERAGENCY CONSPIRACY AND JUST

GET DOWN TO THE COLD, HARD FACTS

SO WE CAN END THIS RAMPANT AND

EXCITING SPECULATION.

YEAH, THAT'S WHAT I WANT.

SO, WHAT DID SHE SAY?

>> I'VE BEEN ADVISED BY MY

COUNSEL TO ASSERT MY

CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT NOT TO

TESTIFY OR ANSWER QUESTIONS

RELATED TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF

THIS HEARING.

>> Stephen: YES!

I MEAN, WHAT?

I MEAN, WITHOUT HER TESTIMONY,

WE'LL BE LEFT WITH NOTHING BUT

OUR IMAGINATION.

>> WHY WON'T LERNER SPILL THE

BEANS ABOUT WHAT SHE KNOWS?

>> WHY IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO

HIDE AND YOU'RE A TRUTH TELLER

AND YOU'RE OF A SOUND MIND AND

SHE SEEMS TO BE.

WHY DOESN'T SHE SIT IN THAT

WITNESS STAND AND ANSWER

TRUTHFULLY?

WHAT DOES SHE GOT TO BE AFRAID

OF?

>> THE SUSPICION IS GROWING THAT

SOMEONE OR OTHER THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION USED THE

MACHINERY OF GOVERNMENT TO GET

ITSELF RE-ELECTED IN 2012,

WHETHER IT WAS THE I.R.S. OR

WHETHER IT WAS KNOCKING OUT CAR

DEALERSHIPS THAT BELONGED TO

REPUBLICANS.

>> REMEMBER GEORGE ORWELL'S

1984?

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT THIS IS.

SHE WANTS TO PROTECT HERSELF OR

SHE'S TAKING THE FIFTH BECAUSE

SHE WANTS TO PROTECT THE WHITE

HOUSE.

DOES SHE HAVE A FEAR FOR THE

WHITE HOUSE OR A FEAR FROM THE

WHITE HOUSE?

>> IS IT SNOWING?

IS IT SHE KNOWS SHE'S DONE

SOMETHING WRONG THAT ONLY

AFFECTS THE I.R.S.?

OR IS IT SHE KNOWS THERE'S

SOMETHING WRONG THAT GOES ABOVE

HER?

>> Stephen: YES, DOES SHE KNOW?

AND WHAT DOES SHE KNOW?

AND HOW DO WE KNOW SHE.

>> S WHAT SHE KNOWS?

AND DID OBAMA KNOW WHAT SHE

KNOWS THAT SHE KNEW?

AND WHAT ABOUT JOHN SUNUNU?

AND, FOLKS, ULTIMATELY IS ALL

THIS JUST A WAY TO COVER UP THE

FACT THAT SOLYNDRA SOLD SOLAR

PANELS TO THE CONSULATE IN

BENGHAZI USING THE ASSOCIATED

PRESS AS A MULE TO SMUGGLE GUNS

INTO MEXICO AS PART OF FAST AND

FURIOUS?

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

THANKS TO MRS. LERNER'S REFUSAL

TO TESTIFY, THAT'S AS A
