E-Mails Show Collusion Between FEC & IRS In Targeting Conservative Groups

It goes way, way beyond two "rogue" employees in Cincinnati, and Eliana Johnson at National Review Online has the details:
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group, the American Future Fund, before recommending that the commission prosecute it for violations of campaign-finance law. Lerner, the former head of the IRS’s exempt-organizations division, worked at the FEC from 1986 to 1995, and was known for aggressive investigation of conservative groups during her tenure there, too. 
“Several months ago . . . I spoke with you about the American Future Fund, a 501(c)(4) organization that had submitted an exemption application the IRS [sic],” the FEC attorney wrote Lerner in February 2009. The FEC, which polices violations of campaign-finance laws, is not exempted under Rule 6103, which prohibits the IRS from sharing confidential taxpayer information, but the e-mail indicates Lerner provided that information nonetheless: “When we spoke last July, you had told us that the American Future Fund had not received an exemption letter from the IRS,” the FEC attorney wrote. 
The timing of the correspondence between Lerner and the FEC suggests the FEC attorney sought information from the IRS in order to influence an upcoming vote by the six FEC commissioners. The FEC received a complaint in March 2008 from the Minnesota Democratic Farmer Labor Party alleging that the American Future Fund had violated campaign-finance law by engaging in political advocacy without registering as a political-action committee. The American Future Fund responded to that complaint in June 2008, telling the commission that it had applied for tax exemption in March of that year and was a “501(c)(4) social-welfare organization that was organized to provide Americans with a conservative and free-market viewpoint and mechanism to communicate and advocate on the issues that most interest and concern them.” According to the e-mail correspondence, a month after receiving the American Future Fund’s response, the FEC general counsel’s office — which is prohibited under law from conducting an investigation into an organization before the FEC’s six commissioners have voted to do so — contacted Lerner to investigate the agency’s tax-exempt status. 
The FEC general counsel’s office, in its recommendation on the case, apparently didn’t tell the agency’s commissioners about how it had obtained the information about the group’s tax-exempt status. Recommending that the commissioners prosecute the American Future Fund, the general counsel’s office wrote, “According to its response, AFF submitted an application for tax-exempt status to the Internal Revenue Service . . . on March 18, 2008.” The footnote to that sentence reads, “The IRS has not yet issued a determination letter regarding AFF’s application for exempt status. Based on the information from the response and the IRS website, it is likely that the application is still under review.” In fact, an FEC lawyer knew that the organization had yet to obtain tax-exempt status because Lerner provided the confidential information.
....Despite the recommendations of the general counsel’s office, the six FEC commissioners split on whether to pursue the American Future Fund’s case and voted six-to-zero to close the case. 
House Ways and Means Committee chairman Dave Camp and ranking member Charles Boustany are calling on the IRS, in the wake of these revelations, to provide all communications between the agency and the FEC between 2008 and 2012. “The American public is entitled to know whether the IRS is inappropriately sharing their confidential tax information with other agencies,” Camp and Boustany write in a letter they will send to acting IRS administrator Danny Werfel on Wednesday.
But will the Way and Means Committee actualy do something about it?  I mean, we're waiting for Issa to recall Learner back to testify, after she waived her rights to plead the Fifth Amendment the last time she was before the committee.

Most Influential Blog Awards - A Fun Way To Recognize Fellow Bloggers

Many thanks to Just A Conservative Girl, who passed along got a nice recognition that really made my day.  There’s even an award badge which I'll proudly display:

Thanks!  I’m honored to have been one of her selections. There's a lot of top-notch bloggers out there, doing great work and, in a lot of cases, finding stories a lot of people (including the "mainstream" news media) are ignoring.  A lot of bloggers don't get a lot of recognition for their work, which is mostly on our own time and dime (contrary to liberal propaganda, we don't have sugar daddies like George Soro$ funding us).  When fellow bloggers give us links, and/or compliments on our work, it's the greatest motivator to keep going. Liberals help in that area also, when they send us hate mail, usually filled with obscenities.  That shows us we're on the right track!

This recognition is a fun way bloggers are recognizing so many of their fellow bloggers in arms. Unlike a lot of other polls for blogger awards, there's no voting.

The rules are, as follows:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.

2. Link back to the person who nominated you

3. Answer 7 questions decided up by your nominator

4. Nominate ( no limit of nominations ) other bloggers for this award and link back to them.

5. Notify those bloggers of the award requirements.
So, 1 and 2 are taken care of, I'll start number three, followed by four and five.
Questions I’ve been given to answer:

1. How do you stay motivated to blog?  

Good question! After November 2012, I seriously considered dropping out of the blogosphere, but I decided to slow down posting during November and December. If writing this blog consisted solely of being a Republican Party cheerleader, I'd have quit. There has to be a level of independence--I write about the things that I find interesting or outrageous, and want to comment on them. Or, if I've come across something that needs to be brought to the attention of readers, I'll present it.

It's also important to find things outside of politics and writing to take my mind off things and "recharge the batteries" so to speak. When I'm not blogging, I like to explore historical spots, swim, workout, play guitar (even sometimes play in bands or "open mics"). I'm working towards the goal of running a 5K sometime this year, and I'm looking into finding out what it would take to get a license/training as a sport pilot, as a way of achieving a lifelong dream of learning to fly an airplane.

2. Who is your personal hero and why?

It would be easy and clichéd as a political blogger to name an influential political leader.  I won't do that. Instead, I have two personal heroes. One is a man I never knew and first found out about when I was nine years maternal grandfather (you can read my tribute to him here). The other is his childhood friend, who was a close family friend until his passing in 1999. Why? Both these men served their nation during World War II. My grandfather gave his life for our nation, training to go fight in the war, while his childhood friend was a Navy Cross recipient for his actions on the USS Nevada during the attack on Pearl Harbor. To top it off, he never talked about what he did to earn the Navy's highest honor below the Medal of Honor.  I only found out the details of how he earned it after he'd died.  They're examples of how freedom is not free, and they took the time to serve our nation in order to defend our way of life for future generations.  Their service and sacrifice is an inspiration to do a small part in preserving our precious freedoms and ensuring that we pass that along to the next generation.

3. What is your biggest political pet peeve?  

Those who are unwilling to stand on principle, and only want to "play it safe" for fear they won't be re-elected, or want to act like "liberal lite" for the sake of re-election and/or to "grow the party."  I am not a "my party, right or wrong" person, especially when the Republican Party leadership has been all too wrong in most cases the last couple of years.  I believe, as Ronald Reagan did, in the idea of "bold colors, not pale pastels."

4. I.R.S., Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Reporter Snooping, and NSA Snooping.  What do you think is the biggest scandal and why?

Obama thinks these are all phony scandals because he wishes them away, and with good reason. He is the most corrupt US President in history, and each of these scandals should anger Americans of all parties.

Benghazi is the worst of the scandals above, because it involves the dereliction of duty of the Commander-in-Chief (the President), who did not give an order to rescue our personnel in Benghazi when they were under attack by terrorists and then lied to not only the American people, but to the families of the four killed, by blaming their killing on an obscure YouTube video. Plus, no one has able to interview the survivors of the attack. What is it this Regime is trying to hide from the American people? This is worse than any other Presidential or political scandal in American history, because people were killed due to a political calculation (re-election of the President).  Any President who is unwilling to rescue Americans under attack, because they are only looking at how a military response affects them politically, is unfit to serve, because they are shrinking from their constitutional oath, and they should be removed from office. 

5. Who is your early pick for 2016? 

The Republican Party needs to pick a limited government, Constitutional conservative as their nominee in 2016. Between now and then, we need to take on and defeat the Karl Rove-consultant class RINOs who have given us two losing moderates they anointed because of their perceived "electability," as well as the "it's their turn" spirit of rotation.  We must do everything to make sure our nominee in 2016 is not Jeb Bush, nor Chris Christie. 

I wouldn't mind seeing Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, though I'd much rather see a governor take the leap. Scott Walker might be a good choice. However, my dream candidate has always been Sarah Palin, because she has name recognition, she is able to attract crowds, inspire people, and speak to them at their level. She's also not willing to "play it safe," by moderating her tone.  We need that. Plus, she's a powerful woman without the "screechy" "ex-wife from Hell" syndrome of someone like Hillary.  Who else can make liberal's heads collectively explode by simply holding up a Big Gulp or a can of chewing tobacco?  That's power!

6. Do you think that Hillary Clinton will make another run for the presidency?  

You betcha!  She's already calculating her run and has all but been anointed as the Democrat nominee.  She'll demand it too, after playing second fiddle to two men (Obama and Slick Willie) her entire political life.

7. Coke or Pepsi?  



So now, I will nominate my choices of bloggers I nominate for this honor. It’s hard because there’s so many bloggers I like and read, but I’ll pick seven, followed by seven questions for them to answer:

Midnight Blue


My questions to them:

1. What shaped your current political philosophy?

2. Do you see a resurgence of the Tea Party movement before the 2014 mid-term elections? Why or why not?

3. What is the most unreported political story that is being ignored by the “mainstream” media?

4. Who do you see as a rising conservative name to watch?

5. What do you do like to do away from blogging/political activism?

6. Which do you prefer: Beach or Mountains?

7. What is a quote you like to live by?

Karl Rove & RINOs Want Amnesty For Illegals...Hey Karl, GET LOST!

I've way past the point of being tired of Karl Rove.

The guy, who has always been touted as "The Architect." The guy liberals were supposed to fear because he's so extreme.

Really? You mean the same "conservative" who attacks Tea Party candidates like Christine O'Donnell?  The same clown who attacks Sarah Palin and Rick Perry on a regular basis? The same fierce Republican who led the RINO attack on Newt Gingrich right before the Florida primary in 2012, because his South Carolina primary win threatened to take out the Rove, RINO establishment anointed candidate Mittens Romney?

Yeah, that guy.  He's always beating up on conservatives and the Tea Party. Kinda like fellow moderates John McLame or Lindsey Grahamnesty.

But take on Obama by defunding Obamacare?  Then Karl the Eunuch shows his yellow streak. No, no, we can't do that, he says. That's a stupid idea. Obama's got the bully pulpit, he and the media will beat us with a stick.

Well, Rove the RINO rides again today.  He and 100 GOP donors (I'm sure the same ones who backed the Romney candidacy in the primary) want to hand Obama a political victory by demanding the House pass amnesty for illegal aliens (Canada Free Press).

The letter’s signatories were organized by Carlos Gutierrez, George W. Bush’s commerce secretary and founder of the “Republicans for Immigration Reform” SuperPAC. You may remember Guitierrez for famously saying that English should not be the official language of the U.S. Government.
Among the letter’s demands is a very specific call to “Take control of our immigration problem by providing a path to legal status for undocumented immigrants who pay penalties and back taxes, pass criminal background checks, and go to the back of the line.”
That the signers are comfortable with the phrase ‘undocumented immigrants’ tells you pretty much everything you need to know about their position.

Like McCain, Graham, and Rubio, Rove and his pals have bought into the bogus notion that amnesty is the only way for the GOP to restore its former glory. Supposedly, the Latino community will suddenly start voting Republican if we just give them what they want. It’s a completely false premise, but that’s what they believe.

The letter is just the first volley in a larger campaign that will stretch through the rest of the summer.

“What tends to happen during the month of August is that members go home and they go to town hall meetings and they check up on their offices in terms of phone calls and letters, and that’s where they get bombarded,” Gutierrez told the New York Times. “Republicans who are for immigration reform — and I believe there are many — we need to make our voice known in August.”

So remember, everyone.  In August, Karl Rove and a whopping 100 elite donors will do everything possible to make sure their opinions on immigration drown out the millions of voters who make up the GOP base. This is exactly why the Republicans can’t win a national election.
So there you have it. Instead of attacking the guy, the Democrats and liberals should be thanking Satan right now for Karl Rove, because if he's the architect of anything, it will be the destruction of the Republican Party's chances in the next Presidential election (and all the ones that follow) when a new slew of Democrat voters are registered.

Which is why Rove is commonly referred to as "Tokyo Rove."

O'Reilly Smacks Sharpton: "Your Day Is Done"

A week after his Talking Points memo that ruffled the feathers of the bullhorn-carrying race hustler Al Sharpton, Bill O'Reilly took the alleged "Reverend" to task.

O'Reilly referenced CNN commentator Don Lemmon, who took thought the Fox Host "didn't go far enough" last week and listed five things he believes the black community needed to do.

As news broke today of a man being attacked in Washington DC over the weekend by a black gang shouting "This is for Trayvon Martin," Richard Milhous Obama (who claims to represent the entire nation) met with race hustler Al Sharpton, who has ginned up the racial animosity after the Zimmerman trial.

It could be of people like Sharpton and his fellow phony reverend Jesse Jackass that Booker T. Washington once said:
"There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don't want the patient to get well."

EXPOSED: Border Wall On Texas/Mexico Border Left Wide Open

"The U.S.-Mexico border has never been more secure." Janet Incompitano

"Our Borders Now Are More Secure Than They Have Ever Been In History" Obama Regime Propaganda Chief Jay Carney

Despite these almost identical assurances from members of the Obama Regime, the border is not secure, and, in fact, is left wide open at several places.

Brandon Darby with Breitbart TV was down in my old stomping grounds of the Rio Grande Valley of Texas to document just how wide open the US/Mexico border is in this video below, which he shot at a small border town just west of the Mission/McAllen metro area.

A look at Google maps of the area shows not just one opening, but two areas of the border fence left open.

I do know as well, from a time I rode with the Border Patrol while interning at a South Texas newspaper around 1990-1991 that illegal aliens have been able to jump on freight trains just before they cross the river around Matamoros that takes them into Brownsville. Of course, that was 20 years ago, but no telling if any security measures are being used to check trains going into the United States. I recall that night I rode with them, the Border Patrol took quite a number of illegals off the train at a stop near a beer distributor warehouse at the intersection of US Hwy 77 and Hwy 100, just north of Brownsville.

To GOP Leadership: You Can't Win When You Stand For Nothing & Alienate Your Base In The Process

Sarah Palin illustrated the problem of today's Republican Party (led by Rinse Preebus, Mitch McConnell, John McLame, and; John Boehner) on Greta van Susteren's Fox News show Friday evening.

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin told Greta Van Susteren Friday that “elites” in the Republican Party banned her from mentioning Barack Obama’s decades-long association with the radical Rev. Jeremiah Wright during the 2008 campaign for fear of a media backlash. Also off the table was any talk about Weather Underground bomber Bill Ayers, in whose living room Obama launched his political career.

Meanwhile, the 2008 Presidential nominee, John McLame, had the strategy of telling voters that they had nothing to fear from an Obama Presidency.  Great strategy, moron!  You might as well have had a sign that said "I really don't want to win this race."

But it wasn't just limited to 2008. We saw the same campaign advisors who gave Palin this idiotic advice attack her in the press over the last four years (hello, Steve Schmuck), as well as the GOP paid consultants (ie: Karl Rove), whose advice during the Bush 43 Presidency was "don't respond to liberal political attacks." Of course, the McLame campaign used this failed tactic as well.

Rove's strategy for fending off liberal attacks is best illustrated below by George McFly in Back to the Future.

So, these same paid consultants whose failed strategery caused the disillusionment of Bush 43, and two losing Presidential campaigns (2008 and 2012), are back again, saying a move by conservatives to defund Obamacare should not be attempted. Their reason? Obama and the media will use it as a club against us. Once again, Karl Rove is pushing this idiocy, with Senators Tom Coburn and Richard Burr parroting almost the exact same line.

It goes beyond surrendering to Obama on the failed Obamacare risky scheme. PJ Media reports how some GOP operatives are, according to sources, aiding the attacks on voter ID laws by racist Attorney General Eric Holder on states like Texas.

This insanity is paying dividends. Fundraising for the GOP was down 27 percent from 2009 in the first quarter.  There's good reason. A party or candidate who stands for nothing will fall for anything.  That's what we've seen the GOP do over the last seven months, do their best to give Obama what he wants, because we don't want to look like meanies.

If that's the strategy of Boehner, Rove, McLame, et al, they will lose, and deserve to lose.  We need to get more people in the GOP leadership who have as much passion as liberals show, instead of those play-it-safe RINOs and Bushies who only want to attack conservatives while playing footsie with libs.

Fat Boy Chris Christie Attacks Rand Paul As "Dangerous," Paul Fires Back "Talk To More Real Americans"

The rotund, RINO governor of New Jersey, Chrispy Crème Chris Christie, decided to attack Sen. Rand Paul yesterday while putting his big lips on Richard Milhous Obama's butt (Washington Times).

Mr. Christie had told fellow GOP governors in Aspen, Colo., on Thursday that Mr. Paul is part of a “strain of libertarianism that’s going through parties right now and making big headlines I think is a very dangerous thought.”
Mr. Christie on Thursday also once again found a way to compliment President Obama while slapping at Mr. Paul.
“President Obama has done nothing to change the policies of the Bush administration in the war on terrorism,” he told fellow Republican governors at a meeting.
“And I mean practically nothing,” he said. “And you know why? Cause they work.”
The New Jersey governor has taken a tough-sounding stand on national defense and terrorism since his embrace of Mr. Obama over federal aid to New Jersey.
Well there's a difference between what President Bush did and what Dictator Obama is doing, fat boy!  Under Bush, the NSA programs targets specific calls between people domestically to suspected terrorists overseas.  Under your new BFF Obama, everyone's calls, e-mails, etc. is being watched, regardless if they are suspected of terrorism.

Now, to a certain extent, I can understand some surveillance of people without a warrant, IF they are suspected of being in touch with terrorists overseas.  However, getting records of phone calls of ALL Americans is dangerous, and especially when we have a Regime that has used the IRS to attack political enemies. That is not only unconstitutional, it is UnAmerican.

Paul shot back to Crispy Crème, via an aide.
“If Governor Christie believes the constitutional rights and the privacy of all Americans is ‘esoteric,’ he either needs a new dictionary, or he needs to talk to more Americans, because a great number of them are concerned about the dramatic overreach of our government in recent years,” Paul senior adviser Doug Stafford told The Washington Times.
...“If Gov. Christie believes the constitutional rights and the privacy of all Americans is ‘esoteric’, he either needs a new dictionary, or he needs to talk to more Americans, because a great number of them are concerned about the dramatic overreach of our government in recent years,” Doug Stafford, a senior adviser to Paul, said in a statement to POLITICO. “Defending America and fighting terrorism is the concern of all Americans, especially Sen. Paul. But it can and must be done in keeping with our Constitution and while protecting the freedoms that make America exceptional.”
The problem is, Christie Crème has an ego that's bigger than his waist size, and (like fellow RINO John McLame) he doesn't care about what's best for the country, just what's best for himself.

Lincoln Memorial Vandalized

Apparently, the green paint splashed on the area of the monument was discovered early this morning (photo & text from The Blaze).

Police say the apparent vandalism was discovered around 1:30 a.m. Friday on the statue, the pedestal and the floor. No words, letters or symbols were visible in the paint.
Capt. Steven Booker says the paint spill “appears intentional based off of the splatter.” He says police are reviewing security camera footage to try to identify possible suspects.
Police say the memorial will be closed until the National Park Service maintenance crew can clean up the paint, which is expected to happen later Friday.
The memorial, one of the most popular sites on the National Mall, was dedicated in 1922 to the nation’s 16th president.

The NBC affiliate in Washington DC quoted joggers on the vandalism:
"I have no idea who would want to do something like that," said Scott Arndt, who was out on his morning run shortly before 6 a.m. "To me, it's defacing America. It's not just defacing the Lincoln Memorial, but it's something against all of America."
"People come from all over the world, and to show that they can't get into one of our national landmarks because somebody vandalized it is kind of a black mark on our country," said jogger Keith Gillespie. 
The affiliate also noted previous vandalism of the Vietnam memorial wall in 2007.

"Phony Scandals" Distract From Economic Progress Says Obama...What Are You Hiding, Barack?

Five years after he was first elected in the midst of an economic downturn, President Richard Milhous Obama redirected his focus today....on how to improve the economy.

Despite how the Obama stimulus didn't really stimulate those "shovel ready" jobs we were promised, and how his crowning achievement, ObamaCare, has weighed down any economic growth, Obama proved once again he cannot take the blame for his failures.

Instead, he decided to lay the blame at Republicans in Congress for focusing on "phony scandals." (Katie Pavlich - Townhall)
"With an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals, Washington has taken its eye off the ball.  And I am here to say this needs to stop.  Short-term thinking and stale debates are not what this moment requires.  Our focus must be on the basic economic issues that the matter most to you – the people we represent," Obama said. 
Funny, I'm not sure the IRS targeting American citizens (with the help of one of Obama's political appointees) for political purposes or four dead Americans killed in Benghazi count as "phony" but hey, "what difference, at this point, does it make?" And speaking of distractions, apparently taking the time to personally call pro-abortion Wendy Davis, Sandra Fluke and the first openly gay NBA player Jason Collins while opining on local crime cases, playing golf and going on numerous vacations doesn't count when it comes to deflecting attention away from anything but the disastrous and stagnant economy. 
IRS, Benghazi as "phony scandals," Mr. Obama?  Even that RINO sellout Joe Scarboring at MSNBC wasn't buying that BS from your propaganda chief, Jay Carney. Let me remind you of one of the articles of impeachment that was drawn up for the second most corrupt President of the United States, Richard Milhous Nixon:
Article II: Abuse of Power.
Using the powers of the office of President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in disregard of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has repeatedly engaged in conduct violating the constitutional rights of citizens, imparting the due and proper administration of justice and the conduct of lawful inquiries, or contravening the laws governing agencies of the executive branch and the purposes of these agencies.
This conduct has included one or more of the following:
(1) He has, acting personally and through his subordinated and agents, endeavored to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposes not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigation to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.

Just the suggestion by Nixon of getting tax records of "political enemies" from the IRS was enough to bring an article of impeachment against him.

What have we learned this week? The Chief Counsel of the IRS met with you, Mr. Obama, two days before the criteria was changed that started the targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups by the IRS, that hindered, in many cases, their efforts for the 2012 Presidential election.

Taxprof, via Instapundit, even asks the following:
“I can’t for the life of me come up with any kind of innocent explanation for why Obama would have met with the Chief Counsel of the IRS. That meeting shouldn’t ever happen, and especially not without the Commissioner of the IRS being there. Presidents just don’t go to agency chief counsels with legal questions. Presidents don’t go to anyone with legal questions. Their staff does. The idea that the President would sit down with some random agency chief counsel and discuss some pressing legal issue is just bizarre to anyone who has worked in the legal field at that level. I am not sure the reporters covering this story understand how legal advice is actually delivered to the President and just how out of the ordinary that meeting was.”
Out of the ordinary?  How bout it stinks to high heaven.  But this, plus the fact that as Commander-in-Chief you were AWOL when four Americans were being attacked by terrorists on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, you want to brush off as "phony scandals."

How dare you, Mr. Obama, act as if the rights of half the nation, and the lives of American diplomats aren't any consideration to you. Didn't you self-righteously lecture Mr. Romney that one of the lessons you learned as President was that a President represents the entire nation, that you work for everyone? 

The problem is, Mr. Obama, you talk a good game, but when it comes to your actions, you show time and time again how much of a lying sack of crap you really are.  Speaking as one concerned American, I'm offended and angry when any leader in power tries to piss on the shoes of all Americans, but tries to make us think it's raining instead.

So why, after a failed stimulus and almost a year of pushing a government take over of health care that has, despite its name (Affordable Care Act) made health-care more expensive, will limit coverage, and is costing people across America their jobs, are you pivoting back to the economy.  Five years later, I must ad.

Is it because you have something to hide, Mr. Obama?

Like what you really knew about "Fast and Furious," that phony scandal where a Border Patrol agent was killed by a gun your InJustice Department let get into the hands of Mexican drug lords.

Like what you knew about the IRS harassment of your political enemies?  What did you know, and when did you know it, Mr. Obama?

Like who gave the stand-down order when our heoroes in Benghazi were under attack and died at the hands of Islamic terrorists?  Not only that, what was the topic of that 10 pm phone call with Secretary of Hate Hillary Rotten Clinton?  Was it how you, Hillary and Susan Rice, were going to look those families and this nation in the eye, and lie to us about a video being the cause of this attack?

What are you hiding, Mr. Obama, that you suddenly want to dismiss these scandals as phony?

What are you hiding?

Firm Linked To Terry McAuliffe's Green Car Company Under Investigation

Terry McAuliffe, that sheister who is running for Governor of Virginia this year, wants voters to think he's some successful businessman, when he's really just a shady political wheeler-dealer.

Now, a firm linked to a green automotive firm he founded and bailed out of last year, is being investigated by the DHS (Politico).
The AP reported that the inspector general of the Department of Homeland Security is looking at whether a top U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services official may have inappropriately helped obtain a visa for an investor in the company Gulf Coast Funds Management LLC. The report stated that the FBI was briefed on the investigation.
That firm, which is headed by Anthony Rodham – Hillary Clinton’s brother – pools foreign investments and obtains so-called EB-5 visas for overseas financiers who commit large sums to American projects.

The report published Tuesday says that there have not yet been any charges of criminal activity on the part of the company or the USCIS official in question, Alejandro Mayorkas, who’s currently up for the number-two job at DHS.

The investor involved in the probe has not been identified, but the AP said he is of Chinese origin. The report also did not say where his money may have been invested through Rodham’s firm.

Still, Republican state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli – McAuliffe’s opponent in the 2013 Virginia governor’s race – said the report raises “serious questions” about GreenTech’s use of the EB-5 visa program.

...Cuccinelli’s swift response to the news about Gulf Coast Funds Management underscores just how intensely Republicans have focused – and will continue to focus – on McAuliffe’s business record during the governor’s race.

McAuliffe has presented himself during the campaign as a Richmond outsider who understands the private sector, while the GOP plans to cast him as a political fixer with no particular record of success in business.

POLITICO reported earlier this year that McAuliffe quietly cut ties with GreenTech last December, tendering his resignation as the company’s chairman on the first day of that month.
Of course, none of Terry Mac's "green jobs" ever were intended for Virginia. He was creating jobs for China.

Weiner Caught Sexting Again. Won't Quit New York Mayor's Race

I heard the press conference on the way home and wanted to gag. (Time)

New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner admitted on Tuesday to sending additional explicit photos and texts to a woman he met online — correspondence she says began months after he resigned from Congress for similar behavior.

The allegation could severely test voters’ willingness to forgive Weiner, who has said he spent the two years since the scandal trying to make things right with his wife and earn redemption.

Weiner, who resigned his House seat in June 2011 after acknowledging having sexual conversations with at least a half-dozen women, has been near the top of most mayoral polls since his late entry into the race this spring.

“I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out and today they have,” said Weiner in a statement released by his campaign. “I want to again say that I am very sorry to anyone who was on the receiving end of these messages and the disruption this has caused.”

Weiner did not say when the newly revealed exchanges occurred, but he said his behavior created “challenges in our marriage that extended past my resignation.”

The new lewd correspondence was posted Monday by the gossip website The Dirty. The woman involved was not identified.

The woman, who told the website she was 22 when she began her correspondence with Weiner, said their online relationship lasted for six months and continued into last summer. She claimed Weiner used the alias “Carlos Danger” for their tawdry exchanges and later asked her to destroy the evidence of their chats.

Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, has played a large — and increasing — role in his mayoral campaign. 
Abedin, a longtime adviser to Hillary Rodham Clinton, urged Weiner to run for office, has led his campaign fundraising and recently made her debut on the campaign trail. Two weekends ago, she walked hand-in-hand with Weiner as they talked to voters on a Harlem street. 
“This behavior is behind me,” said Weiner in the statement released Tuesday. “I apologized to Huma and am grateful that she has worked through these issues with me and for her forgiveness.”

Yeah, Huma learned well from the Hildebeast, how to be used by your sex addict spouse for political gain.

What was really sickening, was the drooling by several lib commentators like Mika Brzezinski, who said Huma "Muslim Brotherhood" Abedin Weiner had such courage and all that.  Come on!

Ted Nugent Calls Out Musician Idiots Boycotting Florida: Why Aren't You Boycotting Chicago?

Agree or disagree with him (and sometimes, he goes a little too far), you have to agree Ted Nugent makes sense and cuts through the phony bull being put on by a lot of musicians.

After Stevie Wonder decided he was going to boycott Florida for the "Stand Your Ground" law, a few other pop music idiots followed. So Ted called them out on their hypocrisy (Daily Caller).
On Andrea Tantaros’ Tuesday radio show, rock star-turned-political commentator Ted Nugent accused celebrities such as Stevie Wonder, Jay-Z and Kanye West of being drug abusers and hypocrites for their declared boycott against Florida as punishment its so-called “stand your ground” law.
“When you live in a fog of denial,  and usually it is inspired by just a lifetime of substance abuse — you know with all the lies about dope being a ‘victimless crime’ — I think you’re listening to the victims of this dopey crime because their brains are fried,” the Motor City Madman replied. “They’re either fried on substance abuse, and all of them know who I’m talking about — the guilty can feel guilty and only the guilty should feel guilty. But there’s also a fog of denial when you’re surrounded by yes men all your life, where you having people picking up after you and you have people serving you.”
...“When you start bending over spiritually and intellectually to people who take care of you all day, you can pretend by boycotting a single city with a stand your ground law that somehow you don’t have to boycott Chicago, where 700 people are slaughtered every year because they’re not standing their ground,” The Nuge said. “They’re let out of their cages to create more brutal murder, and rape, and car-jackings and slaughter of innocents.”
Seriously, who wants to listen to crud like Jay Z when you can listen to this (Language Warning--NSFW)

BOMBSHELL: IRS Chief Counsel Met With Obama Two Days Before Targeting Criteria Changed

Well well, it's not just "two rogue employees in Cincinnati." (Daily Caller).

The Obama appointee implicated in congressional testimony in the IRS targeting scandal met with President Obama in the White House two days before offering his colleagues a new set of advice on how to scrutinize tea party and conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status.

IRS chief counsel William Wilkins, who was named in House Oversight testimony by retiring IRS agent Carter Hull as one of his supervisors in the improper targeting of conservative groups, met with Obama in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on April 23, 2012. Wilkins’ boss, then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman, visited the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on April 24, 2012, according to White House visitor logs.

On April 25, 2012, Wilkins’ office sent the exempt organizations determinations unit “additional comments on the draft guidance” for approving or denying tea party tax-exempt applications, according to the IRS inspector general’s report.

Between 2010 and 2012, the IRS sent letters demanding groups’ training materials, personal information on groups’ donors and college interns, and even the content of a religious group’s prayers.

Wilkins’ meeting with Obama on April 23 was attended by 13 people.

Wilkins, who is one of only two Obama appointees at the IRS, is a former lobbyist with the firm WilmerHale, where he spent his time “counseling nonprofit organizations, business entities, and investment funds on tax compliance, business transactions, and government investigations.” At the firm, Wilkins defended Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Chicago-based United Church of Christ from a 2008 investigation into whether Wright violated his church’s nonprofit status by speaking in favor of Obama. Wilkins successfully defended Wright’s church pro bono.
Related to this IRS scandal is news that Tea Party US Senate candidate from Delaware Christine O'Donnell had her tax records breeched by a Deleware state employee during her 2010 Senate campaign, in which she was alleged to have not paid a lien on a property she used to own. The lien was in error, but the incident was used to attack her politically as someone who couldn't keep track of her finances.

The fact that Obama met with these IRS officials two days before the rules were changed should be raising a lot of eyebrows. I certainly don't think it is a coincidence.

Who will be the whistleblower who will let us know what Obama knew and when he knew it?

George Zimmerman Rescues Family From Car Wreck...DOJ To Launch Investigation

The last part of that headline is a joke, but a lot of people have been repeating it on the InterWebs today, after news came out that George Zimmerman, who has been attacked by the Racial Grievance Industry and its liberal enablers, rescued the Gerstle family from their overturned vehicle near Sanford, FL (UK Daily Mail)

The couple pulled from their upturned SUV by George Zimmerman are Dana and Mark Gerstle, MailOnline can reveal.

The rescue took place on Wednesday after a series of frantic 911 calls following the incident on a stretch of Florida highway just yards from where Zimmerman shot 17 year old Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman, acquitted of all counts against him on July 13, has been in hiding since the controversial finding that has ignited America and brought thousands onto the streets of America.

Father of two, Mr Gerstle, 52, was driving onto the off ramp of the highway when he lost control of the vehicle resulting in the terrifying crash that left him, his wife and two children aged eight and four trapped.

Neither he nor his 41-year-old wife chose to comment on their extraordinary brush with the now infamous Neighborhood Watch Captain.

Zimmerman did not witness the accident which took place at 5.47pm  but was on the scene shortly afterwards.

Though he spoke with his lawyers on Friday he did not make any mention of the rescue.

Speaking to MailOnline Shawn Vincent, a spokesman for Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara said: ‘We spoke with George on Friday and he made no mention of this at all. That’s very typical of George.

‘He has a history of getting involved….it’s just the way he is.

‘There has already been the backlash of people saying this is some sort of PR stunt but it isn’t. We’ve had it confirmed by the Sheriff.’

Of course, the haters would want to attack Zimmerman's good deed, because it is a testament to the type of person he is.

Along with the news of William & Kate's new baby arriving, this is another example of how we can really use more good news these days.

And we need a lot more George Zimmermans in the world, people who are looking out for their neighbor.

Liberal Internet Rag Salon: Eric Holder Is Obama's "Inner Nigger"

Yes, a liberal internet publication wrote that phrase, and they didn't use the "ga" ending (Twitchy).
PBS’ Tavis Smiley set off critics earlier today when he declared that President Obama’s statement today on Trayvon Martin and racial profiling was “weak as pre-sweetened Kool-Aid.” That was just the warm-up act, though. Now, race-obsessed Salon has at last weighed in with its verdict on the president’s speech, calling it “overrated and airy,” and writer Rich Benjamin reserved his praise for Eric Holder, whom he suggests is unafraid to appear as the “angry black man” in the administration. 
What’s another way to put it? Writes Benjamin:
Some of us have an Inner Child. Others have an Inner Nigger. Is Holder the president’s conscience? Or his Inner Nigger?
Yes, Benjamin is a black man, and Salon is as liberal as it gets. So, free pass, right?
But compared to Paula Deen, I'm sure Mr. Benjamin will get a "Get Out Of Jail Free" card, because 1. he's black, and 2. he's a liberal.

Wonder if Joan Walsh, that nutty lib writer for Salon who throws the race card at every opportunity, will boycott her own employer.

Stevie Wonder, Congression Black Caucus Declare War On Florida Because Of "Stand Your Ground"

It's war on Florida, via the liberal's favorite bullying tool--the economic boycott, because of the "Stand Your Ground" law being used for self defense.

Stevie Wonder started it, mentioning his intentions up in Quebec earlier in the week. (CNN)
"I decided today that until the 'stand your ground' law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again," Wonder told the audience at a concert in Quebec on Sunday night. "As a matter of fact, wherever I find that law exists, I will not perform in that state or in that part of the world."
Now the racist Congressional Black Caucus is saying they would support an economic boycott of Florida (Mandy Nagy at Legal Insurrection).
The push for an economic boycott of Florida has ratcheted up in recent days, with some members of the Congressional Black Caucus now publicly supporting the idea of such an action.  The underlying target of their ire?  Stand Your Ground laws, of course.
From The Hill:
A number of House Democrats are lining up behind the Rev. Jesse Jackson’s threat for an economic boycott of Florida following the not-guilty verdict in the death of Trayvon Martin. 
The lawmakers, all members of the Congressional Black Caucus, are fierce critics of the process that led to George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the fatal shooting last year of the Florida teenager. Exerting pressure on Florida’s economy as Jackson is suggesting, they said, could help overturn the state’s controversial stand-your-ground laws that many contend contributed to the tragedy.
Among lawmakers who’d support an economic boycott of Florida is Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.), who suggested that forcing the revenues to decline for conventions and prominent businesses in the state, such as Disney World and Universal Studios, “will get the attention of the powerful.” 
These community organizers and lawmakers who support the notion of a boycott want you to ignore that Stand Your Ground was not applicable in Zimmerman’s specific situation.
Never mind that statistics show who Stand your Ground benefits the most....the black community.
African Americans benefit from Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law at a rate far out of proportion to their presence in the state’s population, despite an assertion by Attorney General Eric Holder that repealing “Stand Your Ground” would help African Americans.
Black Floridians have made about a third of the state’s total “Stand Your Ground” claims in homicide cases, a rate nearly double the black percentage of Florida’s population. The majority of those claims have been successful, a success rate that exceeds that for Florida whites.
How far we've fallen in 31 years from when "Ebony and Ivory lived together in perfect harmony."

And the fall occurred under the first black President, who was hyped to be the racial divider.

Race-Agitator-In-Chief Barack Obama: I Could Have Been Trayvon Martin 35 Years Ago

Remember in September 2012, in the run-up to the November Presidential election, Richard Milhous Obama said on David Letterman's show, after the Mitt Romney "47 Percent" tape was released:

“One of the things I learned as president is you represent the entire country. If you want to be president, you have to work for everyone.”

Almost a week after the "not guilty" verdict was handed down in the George Zimmerman trial for the killing of Trayvon Martin, and the lawlessness that has ensued, Obama had the opportunity today to show he indeed represented "the entire country."  He could have been the "racial healer" he was hyped to have been back in 2008.

He did not.  Instead, being the narcissist he is, Obama made it about himself and the fact that he is half black. (CNN)
In unscheduled and unusually personal remarks, President Barack Obama tried Friday to explain why African-Americans were upset about last week's acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin while lowering expectations for federal charges in the case.
"Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago," Obama told White House reporters in a surprise appearance at the daily briefing.
His remarks, which lasted about 20 minutes, escalated a nationwide debate on the verdict that has prompted protests, including some that turned violent.

Never mind that whites and Hispanics have been brutally attacked, all in the name of revenge for Trayvon Martin. Never mind the thuggery, the blocking of traffic (including some who needed to go to the hospital). The President of the United States gave you all the middle-finger and said he's standing with the race agitators. The so-called "Reverends" Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackass, and the other angry, divisive voices who has used race as a weapon to divide Americans.

Is this whom Obama wants to be compared to? A troubled teenager who adopted the "gangsta" lifestyle, smoked dope, was suspected of burglary, and had been suspended from school?

Obama has always been quick to call for civility when he could attack the Tea Party (after Tucson) or Rush Limbaugh. To his base, he just gives them a wink and a nod while pretending to be above the fray.

To think, this SOB has made this case more personal than the killing of four Americans by al-Queda terrorists in Benghazi, Libya. He won't tell us what he was doing the night of 9/11/12, nor why he and his Regime looked this nation in the eyes and lied to us about a video being the cause of that attack.
America deserved better than what they got from Obama today.  Obama does not "transcend race," instead, he shows he learned well from his mentor, the racist "Reverend" Wright in the 20 years he spent in the pews of that bigoted "church."  With Al Sharpton out in the streets with his bullhorn over the next couple of months, the last thing America needed was the alleged leader of this nation, as well as his fellow racist in Eric Holder, fanning the flames of racial division.  Because should there be any bloodshed from protests seeking revenge for Trayvon Martin, Obama, Holder, as well as the Race Hustlers like Sharpton and Jackson, will have blood on their hands.

A Terrorist On The Cover Of The Rolling Stone

Once upon a time, all you had to do was write a catchy song in order to get your picture on the Cover of the Rolling Stone.

Now, almost 40 years later, set off a bomb that kills and maims people at the Boston Marathon because you think America sucks, and the leftist rag will put your picture on the Cover of the Rolling Stone.

Notice how rock star looking Tsarnarev appears, almost as if he looks like Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin some 43 years ago.

Outrage, rightfully so, has ensued. Many in the entertainment world have expressed digust at Rolling Stone, but the rag has it's defenders.

Like Amanda Marcotte.  You remember her? She was a blogger from Breck Girl John Edward's campaign until blog posts she'd written showing hostility to the Catholic Church led to her ouster.  Well, Amanda thinks he's dreamy and those who criticize the terrorist on the cover are stupid.

Luke Russert, who dishonors his father, the later Tim Russert, says the cover story of the terrorist is a "must read."

CVS and some other stores have refused to carry this issue of the rag. Maybe the "dreamy eyed" terrorist won't be able to "buy five copies for my mother" after all.

To think Rolling Stone couldn't sink lover after doctoring Algore's package back in 2000.

IRS Scandal Now Reaches White House?

According to Carl Cameron of Fox News, Rep. Darrell Issa has information linking the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups and conservatives to the White House (Gateway Pundit).

“What he said to me today was make sure to watch tomorrow’s hearing because he’s going to present the evidence to prove it…. That he can get it right up all the way into the White House before it was all revealed.”

We shall see. If it's true, let's hope it is airtight evidence.

Post Zimmerman Trial Violence...Where's The Civility Plea, Mr. Obama?

Three days after the "not guilty" verdict was read in a Florida courtroom that decided the fate of George Zimmerman, it provoked anger and outrage among many in this nation.

Some held silent vigils, but still others decided it was time for their fellow citizens to pay.

John Nolte at Breitbart News has compiled the following 22 acts of lawlessness committed in the name of "Justice for Trayvon."
1. July 14:  Witness claims Hispanic man beaten by youths yelling, "This is for Trayvon."

2.July 16:  Jogger in Mississippi claims he was attacked in retaliation for Zimmerman verdict

3. July 16: Pennsylvania business graffitied with 'Kill Zimmerman,' set on fire

4. July 16: Wisconsin man claims he was beaten by teens shouting, "This is for Trayvon."

5. July 15: Anti-Zimmerman protesters block freeway traffic in Los Angeles

6. July 15: Anti-Zimmerman protester raid a Walmart in Los Angeles

7. July 16: CBS reporter assaulted in Crenshaw during anti-Zimmerman protest

8. July 15: Anti-Zimmerman protester block major intersection in Newark, NJ

9. July 16: Thirteen arrested in Crenshaw for vandalizing cars and stores, assault

10. July 16: Waiter struck in head with a hammer

11. July 16: Windows broken at Men's Wearhouse

12. July 15: Store window spray-painted with word "revolt"

13. July 13: New York Giants star threatens Zimmerman

14. July 14: 'Wire' creator David Simon says he'd bring a brick to Zimmerman courthouse

15. July 14: Singer attacked after dedicating song to Trayvon Martin

16. July 13: Teen arrested in Zion, Illinois for threatening violence

17. July 13: Gallery of death threats against George Zimmerman

18. July 15: "Kill Zimmerman" Facebook page removed          

19. July 14: Man lights marijuana cigarette off burnt American flag

20. July 15: Dozen arrested in New York protest

21. July 15: New York protesters block traffic

22. July 16: Houston protesters block traffic
Meanwhile, the most Richard Milhous Obama did was to issue a statement on Sunday, using the verdict as a call for gun control legislation.  Just as Attorney General Eric Holder has today attacked "Stand Your Ground" laws.

But go back two and a half years ago to January 2011, when Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was wounded, and six others (including a federal judge and nine year old girl) were killed by an armed nut, Jared Loughner.  Because Giffords' congressional seat had been "targeted" by the Tea Party as one to take in the 2010 mid-term elections, the same media that tried and convicted George Zimmerman claimed that the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, and Rush Limbaugh, among others, inspired Loughner to shoot the Congresswoman and the others at her Tucson meet and greet. Never mind Loughner was, by all accounts, a dope-smoking, 9/11 Troofer obsessed with a movie Zeitgeist, not anything close to being Tea Party material.

But the allegation made a good background for Obama to use at a public memorial to give a homily about the lack of civility that had infected the political debate.
"At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized," he said, "at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who happen to think differently than we do — it's important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds."

Unfortunately, we saw in the weeks after that speech how Obama was silent when his allies engaged in uncivil behavior.  Never mind that Obama, near the end of the 2012 election cycle, claimed one of the most important lessons he had learned as President was that he represented the entire country.

Notice how Obama always sounds slick, eloquent and uniting when it comes to attacking his ideological opponents as being uncivil and divisive.  But where was the same call to civility in the Zimmerman case?  In many ways, Obama and Holder can be held responsible for fanning some of passions and divisions, especially with comments like "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon." 

Why is that necessary? Why do we have a President and attorney general who act as if they have a racial chip on their shoulders, instead of seeing the progress America has made in race relations?  Is it because of their membership in racist "churches" and racial separatist groups?  Instead of representing all Americans, Obama and members of his regime use straw man arguments and events to divide and pit Americans against each other by race, class, gender, or sexual orientation.  It's also a good tool to shout "SQUIRREL" and distract from their crimes and scandals.

While the Obama InJustice Department asks for tips to aid in a civil rights case against George Zimmerman, they are silent as stats show violent crime against whites in America has increased 18 percent in the year 2010 to 2011

So where is the Obama InJustice Department in protecting all Americans? Where's the same call for "civility" and "new tone" that you were so eager to give after Tucson?  Because your silence in the wake of the lawless actions after the Zimmerman trial speaks volumes right now.

Racist AG Eric Holder Wants "Stand Your Ground" Laws Ended, Even Though Blacks Have Used Law In Self-Defense

Racist US Attorney General Eric "My People" Holder spoke today in front of another group that has been fanning flames of racial division, the National Association for the Advancement of (Certain) Colored People (NAACCP) and called for an end to "Stand Your Ground" laws (Breitbart).
“It’s time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods,” Holder was scheduled to say. “These laws try to fix something that was never broken.”

He will state, “There has always been a legal defense for using deadly force if – and the ‘if’ is important – no safe retreat is available. But we must examine laws that take this further by eliminating the common sense and age-old requirement that people who feel threatened have a duty to retreat, outside their home, if they can do so safely.”

Holder will also claim that “stand your ground” laws make states less safe by “allowing – and perhaps encouraging – violent situations to escalate in public.” Yet between 2005 (when Florida’s “stand your ground” law was passed) and 2010, Florida's violent crime rate dropped 23 percent, an increasingly rapid drop from the 12 percent drop from 2000-2005.
Never mind also that Holder wants to get rid of a law that one black woman in Houston used to defend herself in a road rage incident last year.
Authorities didn't charge 23-year-old Crystal Scott immediately after the shooting death last year of Jonathan Ables, but Harris County grand jurors apparently concluded there were still enough unanswered questions for the case to go to trial.

Scott told authorities she shot Ables on Sept. 17 after both drivers had pulled their vehicles into a Shell station on FM 1960 near Perry.

Scott said the 22-year-old Ables began screaming profanities at her, then struck the car and tried to open her door. Scott said she was in fear for her life when she pulled the trigger, fatally striking Ables.

"What was she supposed to do? Did she have a right to defend herself?" her attorney, Letitia Quinones, asked on Tuesday, saying she was "deeply saddened" that a grand jury would indict Scott. 
Scott, who was uninjured in the incident, was questioned at the scene by Harris County sheriff's deputies but later was released without charges.

The shooting was then referred to a grand jury.

....At the time, sheriff's deputies said Scott's account of what happened seemed to match that of other witnesses.

"Her life will never be the same," Quinones said. "She's been in counseling since this happened."
But Eric Holder won't mention this case, nor any other case that involves a minority defending themselves will they? Because it's all about pushing an agenda.
