WORSE THAN WATERGATE: White House Prepped Susan Rice To Lie About Benghazi

Asst To Obama Behind E-Mails Pushing YouTube Video Link To Attack Is Brother To Head Of SeeBS News....


Let's just admit it, it is worse than Watergate (Fox News).
More than 100 pages of documents were released to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. Among them was a Sept. 14, 2012, email from Ben Rhodes, an assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communications.

In the email, Rhodes specifically draws attention to the anti-Islam Internet video, without distinguishing whether the Benghazi attack was different from protests elsewhere.

The email lists the following two goals, among others:

"To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy."

"To reinforce the President and Administration's strength and steadiness in dealing with difficult challenges."

The email goes on to state that the U.S. government rejected the message of the Internet video. "We find it disgusting and reprehensible. But there is absolutely no justification at all for responding to this movie with violence," the email stated.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said the documents read like a PR strategy, not an effort to provide the best available intelligence to the American people.

"The goal of the White House was to do one thing primarily, which was to make the president look good. Blame it on the video and not [the] president's policies," he said.

The Rhodes email was not part of the 100 pages of emails released by the administration last May -- after Republicans refused to move forward with the confirmation of John Brennan as CIA director until the so-called "talking points" emails were made public.

The email is also significant because in congressional testimony in early April, former deputy CIA director Michael Morell told lawmakers it was Rice, in her Sunday show appearances, who linked the video to the Benghazi attack. Morell said the video was not part of the CIA analysis.

"My reaction was two-fold," Morell told members of the House Intelligence Committee, regarding her appearances. "One was that what she said about the attacks evolving spontaneously from a protest was exactly what the talking points said, and it was exactly what the intelligence community analysts believed. When she talked about the video, my reaction was, that's not something that the analysts have attributed this attack to."

Incidentally, three leading Republicans on Monday night sent letters to the House and Senate foreign affairs committees asking them to compel the administration to explain who briefed Rice in advance of the Sunday talk shows and whether State Department or White House personnel were involved.

"How could former Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, during the five Sunday talk shows on September 16, 2012, claim that the attacks on our compounds were caused by a hateful video when Mr. Morell testified that the CIA never mentioned the video as a causal factor," said the letter, from Sens. Lindsey Graham, of South Carolina; Kelly Ayotte, of New Hampshire; and John McCain, of Arizona.
Remember, this was in the last two months of an election year, and here is the White House strategizing a lie about why an attack on an American asset happened and trying to downplay any idea that Islamic terrorism was involved.

Watergate, much like Monicagate, was a political scandal. No lives were lost and one political party seized on the wrongdoings of the administration in question for political motives.  Benghazi is different because it involves the loss of American lives, including a US Ambassador, in a terrorist attack, and the entire Regime, from the President (who was getting ready to fly out the next day for a political fundraiser) and the potential Democrat nominee for 2016 (who was then Secretary of State) were involved in a cover up and lie to not only the American people, but the families of the four Americans who were killed in Benghazi.

But the cover up is worse than Nixon's cover up of the Watergate burglary.

Ben Rhodes, the White House figure who is mentioned in the Fox News story, is the brother of David Rhodes, who has been President of SeeBS News since 2011.

In this Daily Caller story from almost one year ago, SeeBS was discussing dropping investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who had been pursuing the Benghazi scandal, as well as the Fast and Furious gunrunning scheme by the Obama InJustice Department and Eric "My People" Holder.

Attkisson just recently left SeeBS and has said that the network resisted stories that painted the Obama Regime in an unflattering way.

So, we know how the Regime has pressed networks about certain statements made about the President (Mark Halperin calling Obama a slang word for a male sex organ), so could it be logical that the White House used the Rhodes connection at SeeBS to stifle any investigation into BenghaziGate?

That's why this is much bigger than Watergate. Not only is there a cover up in the White House, but the media "watchdogs" of 40 years ago have become lapdogs whose executives are linked to officials at the highest level in the White House.

John Kerry Is The Face Of A Regime That Attacks Our Allies & Emboldens Its (& Our) Enemies

We're getting a good view of the bullet we dodged, if "The Lurch" John Kerry had been elected President in 2004.

Remember how he said he was going to restore America's image that Bush supposedly ruined?  Now we see what the Kerry (as well as Obama and Democrat) strategy was/is. Appease your enemies and attack your allies.

Just like John Kerry did with Israel, whom his boss Richard Milhous Obama has had a long dislike for.  Now, since his "apartheid state" comment has come out, Kerry wants to play the "I was for it before I was against it" game again (Time).
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is seeking to control the fallout from his heavily criticized remark that Israel risks becoming “an apartheid state.”

“I will not allow my commitment to Israel to be questioned by anyone, particularly for partisan, political purposes,” he said in a forceful statement released by the State Department on Monday.

“If I could rewind the tape, I would have chosen a different word to describe my firm belief that the only way in the long term to have a Jewish state and two nations and two peoples living side by side in peace and security is through a two state solution.”

The tape being referred to is of Kerry speaking at a Friday closed-door meeting of the Trilateral Commission — a discussion group of U.S., Japanese and European officials. On the tape, he says that “a unitary state winds up either being an apartheid state with second-class citizens—or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state.”

Acquired and published by The Daily Beast, the recording prompted condemnations from across the U.S. political spectrum. Republican Senator Ted Cruz even called on the Secretary of State to resign.

In his statement, Kerry emphasized that he has shown his support for Israel not only verbally, but also “when it came time to vote and when it came time to fight.”

He pointed out that former Israeli Prime Ministers and the current Justice Minister have “all invoked the specter of apartheid to underscore the dangers of a unitary state for the future,” but he added that “it is a word best left out of the debate here at home.”
Ted Cruz, one of the rare members in the Senate who has a backbone, said Kerry should resign for such an insult at our Jewish allies.  Mark Levin, on his radio show last night, called Kerry an anti-Semite.


But what about John Kerry? Will he get his due? What do you mean, Mark? John Kerry, you know the Secretary of State. Did you know that John Kerry is an anti-Semite? Did you know that? The Democrat nominee in 2004, United States Senator from Massachusetts all those terms. A man who lied to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1971, when he turned on all our brave men and women in uniform fighting in Vietnam. He gave aid and comfort to the Vietnamese, the Communist Vietnamese in the Vietcong. Oh, am I allowed to say all these things? Well, it's true.

Now he's giving aid and comfort to the terrorists in the Middle East. Let there be no mistake about it. Now he's giving aid and comfort to the Jew-haters in the Israel-haters in the Middle East and not just there! This man is a disgrace and he should resign, and he won't resign. Par for the course in this administration. Par for the course. What did he do now, you ask. You wont hear this endlessly on the radio networks, you won't see this endlessly on cable news. No you won't.

Instead, we're focused on that jackass basketball owner, instead of the jackass Secretary of State. That's right, I said it! And I don't use this word anti-Semite frivolously. If somebody happens to disagree with me, that's fine, but a pattern is evidence. And now, Kerry warns, t hat Israel risks becoming an apartheid state. Like South Africa. No Secretary of State has ever said that about our ally Israel. Ever. And what's gonna happen him? Who's gonna denounce him? More when I return. (Mark Levin Show, April 28, 2014)
I agree with The Great One, but I'd go further and say it goes beyond Kerry. John Kerry is just the public face of the current Regime which has a long track record of anti-Israel sentiment, in addition to Obama's history of chumming around with anti-Semites and the Democrat Party's hostility toward Israel (famously seen at the 2012 DNC Convention).  Kerry was just chosen because he thinks the way Obama does.

Remember the videotape of the going away party for Rashid Khalidi that Obama attended that, by all accounts, turned into a "Jew bash?"  The LA Times, a supposed news organization, hid that tape.  Why? What were they hiding?  And why is Obama friends with a former advisor for the PLO?  Why did Obama recently speak from the podium of the "Rev." Al Charlitan Sharpton's group.  Remember how Sharpton once used the term "diamond merchants" against Jews and was quoted after the infamous Crown Height riot saying "If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house."

Don't forget either, how Obama's mentor and racist preacher for 20 years, Jeremiah Wright, had a history of anti-Israel sentiment. Even in 2009, the Racist Rev. Wright said "them Jews aren't going to let him [Obama] talk to me."

So spare me your phony garbage about your "commitment to Israel," John Kerry. You've spent your entire public life trashing the US military as murderers, paling around with Communists while acting like Islamic terrorism is just as bad as gloBULL warming.

Democrat Activists At Media Matters Manipulate Bundy Interview To Claim He's "Racist," But Defend Policies Of Racist Democrat President

Many blogs have pointed out for years the shady history of the liberal "media watchdog" group Media Matters for America (aka Media Mutters), and how it violates it's tax exempt 501c3 status by engaging in partisan political activism.

My buddy Kristinn Taylor, and Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit have been on top of the group the last couple of days, noting how MMFA's leader David Crock describes himself on his Twitter account as a "Democrat Political Activist." Crock also spoke at a Democrat Party fundraiser and even this morning admitted on CNN that the liberal group works with supposedly "objective" media outlets on stories.

Just this past week, the New York Slimes and Media Mutters the Democrat Political Activists edited parts of a video interview with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy in order to make him appear as racist and smear conservatives in the media and elsewhere for defending a "racist."  It was a catchy game of SQUIRREL! to distract from the Obama Regime's attempt to run roughshod over private citizens.

But David Crock and Media Mutters have no right to point finger, especially when it comes to accusing conservatives of supposedly defending racists.

Why?

Because Media Mutters has, over the years, defended the policies of the 36th President of the United States, Democrat Lyndon B. Johnson, against conservative criticism, in the following posts.

National Review Online: Let's End Discrimination By Destroying The Civil Rights Act

Beck's Broke: LBJ passed civil rights legislation out of political expediency
I'm sure you'll be completely unsurprised to hear that in Broke, Glenn Beck describes President Lyndon Johnson as a "true progressive at heart," and goes on to castigate virtually every aspect of his presidency. But Beck has a problem in attacking Johnson -- while his economic policies have been slammed by the right and his decision to escalate the Vietnam War has been savaged by the left, it's almost impossible to find someone who doesn't champion the Voting Rights Act of 1965 or the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Beck's Fox colleague John Stossel excluded, of course).

So what does Beck do? He smears Johnson's passage of landmark civil rights legislation as entirely motivated by political expediency.


NRA's (Ted) Nugent: Great Society "Responsible For More Destruction To Black America" Than Slavery, KKK

So, one can make the allegation that the Democrat party activists at Media Matter are defending a racist. Because Lyndon Johnson, that embarrassment to the Great State of Texas, was by all accounts a frothing bigot who only took up the cause of civil rights for political expediency, as he did in 1957, when he said:
"These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don't move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there'll be no way of stopping them, we'll lose the filibuster and there'll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It'll be Reconstruction all over again." 
Robert Morrow, writing at Economic Policy Journal, wrote of correspondence he received from Warren Trammell, whose father, Seymore, was an aide to segregationist Alabama Democrat Governor George Wallace. Trammell wrote the following, from conversations his father alleged LBJ had said.
At the same time in a lesser known part of the world, the LBJ's USA was deeply embroiled in a massive war in North Viet Nam over oil (the real reason we know today). America's President at that time, in charge of "managing" these two violent situations, was Lyndon Baines Johnson, affectionately know by his Southern political buddies as just LBJ or just Lyndon. Unknown to the public, Southern politicians privately shared Lyndon's hatred of what he called in private, "niggers". Lyndon hated "niggers'! He called them "niggers" in private. He cussed "niggers" every day, my father said, and called them all kinds of vile names!  He had his hands full with the Viet Nam war and hated being "bothered by those G--damned niggers" my father said Lyndon said.
...However, in typical trickster style, when George and Seymore got into Lyndon's Oval Office, they were shocked! Lyndon began to cuss like a sailor and ask them, "
What in the hell are you boys (Lyndon called them boys) doing with those G--damned niggers down there?" Shocked and taken back, the "Guvna" said "Well Mr. President, we're doing the best we can! What do ya want us to do?"
At that Lyndon began to cuss "niggers" again. They were sitting on either side of a narrow coffee table in the Oval office and big Lyndon with his long strong arms and big powerful Texas rough hands reached over and slapped both Seymore and George hard on their knees and held their legs a moment and said "Now you boys, you gotta get your G--damned asses back down to Alabama and make those G--damned niggers act right and calm the hell down! I am G--damned tired of hearing 'bout those G--damned niggers on the G--damned news every night!  Every night at midnight, I hafta get on that damned Red Phone over there on my desk and give the G--damned orders for the B-52 Bombers to fly over the Ho Chi Minh trail  and all over that G--damned North Viet Nam and bomb the the hell outta the whole G-damned country every G--damned night and this G--damned war is killing me!
You boys got it lucky. Hell George (Lyndon called him George and "boy"), all the hell you got is those G--damned niggers throwing rocks and tot'in signs! Hell, here, I had to get the Secret Service to put-up double thick bullet proof glass to the White House windows cause these G--damn niggers and hippies up here are shootin' bullets at me and my wife and 2 little girls are scared to death!  I hate those G--damned niggers and hippies.
Morrow also brought up the section from Washington journalist Ronald Kessler's book Inside the White House (written about here recently found on pages 33 to 34, that show how LBJ's championing of the Civil Rights Bill and War on Poverty was for purely political expedience.


During one trip, Johnson was discussing his proposed civil rights bill with two governors. Explaining why it was so important to him, he said it was simple: “I’ll have them niggers voting Democratic for two hundred years.”
That was the reason he was pushing the bill,” said [Robert M. MacMillan, an Air Force One steward], who was present during the conversation. “
Not because he wanted equality for everyone. It was strictly a political ploy for the Democratic party. He was phony from the word go As probable cause that Johnson could have said the alleged statements above, here is this clip from YouTube of Johnson using the "n-word."


Yet this is who the Democrats and Media Mutters celebrate and defend, while throwing rocks at conservatives as "racists."

What hypocrites!

Virginians Oppose Terry McAwful's Medicaid Expansion Scheme For Obamacare

After winning the governor's mansion by a narrow margin (and with the help of a LIEbertarian candidate funded by an Obama donor), Terry McAwful, former leader of Bill Clinton's Hillbilly Mafia, pledged to find "common ground" and spoke of the need for "progress over ideology."

Well, being a typical Clintonoid, as well as a liberal Democrat, all of McAwful's words were just lies.  He and his party of socialists have pledged to shut down Virginia's government if they don't get to expand Medicaid, a scheme done by other states to help the Obamacare trainwreck.

And citizens of the Commonwealth are opposed to it (WHSV.com).
A new poll shows that the majority of Virginians oppose a plan favored by Gov. Terry McAuliffe to use federal Medicaid funds to provide health insurance to low-income residents.

A poll from Christopher Newport University's Judy Ford Wason Center for Public Policy poll released Thursday shows that Virginia voters oppose Medicaid expansion 53 percent to 41 percent. In February, the university found the majority of voters favored Medicaid expansion 56 to 38.

The shift in the public's views suggests that Republican lawmakers are winning the long-running public relations over McAuliffe and Democratic lawmakers.

Lawmakers have been deadlocked on Medicaid expansion for several months. The impasse led the General Assembly to adjourn in March without passing a $96 billion two-year budget, which could lead to a potential state government shutdown.

The Bull Elephant noted back in February that the Demonrats openly stated they were willing to shut down the government if they didn't get this Obamacare scheme implemented in the Commonwealth.

So, who are the one's putting ideology over common ground, Mr. McAwful?

We can all thank former LG Bill Boilling for getting us in this mess.

Texas AG Greg Abbott To Obama's Land-Grabbing BLM: "Come And Take It"

After their attempt at grabbing land from Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, the Obama Regime's Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is looking to grab about 90,000 acres of land on the Texas and Oklahoma border.

Texas Attorney General (and GOP nominee for Governor) Greg Abbott is having none of it and resurrected a phrase from the Texas Revolution to make his point (Breitbart Texas).

After Breitbart Texas reported on the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) intent to seize 90,000 acres belonging to Texas landholders along the Texas/Oklahoma line, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott questioned the BLM’s authority to take such action.
“I am about ready,” General Abbott told Breitbart Texas, “to go to go to the Red River and raise a ‘Come and Take It’ flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas.”

Gen. Abbott sent a strongly-worded letter to BLM Director Neil Kornze, asking for answers to a series of questions related to the potential land grab.
“I am deeply concerned about the notion that the Bureau of Land Management believes the federal government has the authority to swoop in and take land that has been owned and cultivated by Texas landowners for generations,” General Abbott wrote. “The BLM’s newly asserted claims to land along the Red River threaten to upset long-settled private property rights and undermine fundamental principles—including the rule of law—that form the foundation of our democracy. Yet, the BLM has failed to disclose either its full intentions or the legal justification for its proposed actions. Decisions of this magnitude must not be made inside a bureaucratic black box.”
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart Texas, General Abbott said, “This is the latest line of attack by the Obama Administration where it seems like they have a complete disregard for the rule of law in this country ...And now they’ve crossed the line quite literally by coming into the State of Texas and trying to claim Texas land as federal land. And, as the Attorney General of Texas I am not going to allow this.”
This is why Abbott is one of the best state AGs in the nation, and is going to be a great governor of Texas.  We need a lot more people like him in the nation.

Meanwhile, the corrupt "Dingy" Harry Reid made a veiled threat at Mr. Bundy in the media.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land.
“It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.”
Reid called militias staying at Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch “domestic violent terrorist-wannabes.”
Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., disagreed with Reid, telling KSNV that these militia members are “patriots” and took issue with how the U.S. Bureau of Land Management handled the situation.
“I take more issues with the BLM coming in with a paramilitary army of individuals with snipers. I’m talking to people and groups that are there at the event. Your own government with sniper lenses on you. It made a lot of people very uncomfortable,” Heller told KSNV.
A nation of laws? What about the right to owning private property, Dingy?  Oh yeah, I forgot, you don't live by the law, you just make one sleazy land deal after another. Of course, Reid had to attack private citizens who stand up against the fascist, jackbooted thugs. All the dingy one does has been attack private citizens (Rush Limbaugh, the Koch Brothers) from his bully pulpit on the Senate floor like some power mad tyrant.

GOP Establishment's Choice, Jeb Bush, On Board Of Pro-Obamacare Company

The GOP establishment once again shows how little difference there is between them and liberal Democrats. (Breitbart)
According to a report in The New York Times, "Bush left public office seven years ago with a net worth of $1.3 million and an unapologetic determination to expand his wealth, telling friends that his finances had suffered during his time in government."

Bush tried to prop up Lehman Brothers before it collapsed and almost took down the financial system with it, eventually costing taxpayers billions of dollars to bail out banks. This galvanized what would become the Tea Party movement. He has also been associated with some troubled and shady companies and executives, as well as a company that promoted Obamacare. Bush's associations with Lehman Brothers may prove more troubling for someone the Tea Party already distrusts for his unabashed support of amnesty and the Common Core:
Records and interviews show, for example, that Mr. Bush participated in the fevered, last-ditch efforts to prop up Lehman Brothers, a Wall Street bank weighed down by toxic mortgage-backed securities. As a paid adviser to the company in the summer of 2008, he met with Carlos Slim HelĂș, a Mexican billionaire, as Lehman sought to persuade Mr. Slim to make a sizable investment in the firm, emails show.

.... Within a year of departing the Statehouse, he had signed on as consultant to Lehman Brothers, where he was eventually enlisted to reach out to Mr. Slim in a plan code-named Project Verde. Mr. Slim, however, was not interested in making a major investment in Lehman Brothers or striking up a joint venture with it. “Project Verde was unsuccessful,” Mr. Bush wrote to a Lehman colleague in early July 2008.

Lehman executives talked openly about the value of Mr. Bush’s family connections in the midst of the crisis. Lehman’s chief executive, Richard S. Fuld Jr., discussed the possibility of having Mr. Bush ask his brother President Bush to persuade the British prime minister to allow Lehman’s emergency merger with a British bank, according to testimony from the company’s bankruptcy case. Mr. Fuld never followed through, and Mr. Bush did not call the president, a spokeswoman for him said.

Barclays, which took over Lehman Brothers, reportedly pays Bush "in excess of $1 million a year," according to the report.

The Times also reports that Bush was a paid director for a company, Tenet Health Care, that aggressively supported and promoted Obamacare because it would be profitable for the company. He may have to explain his connections to GOP primary voters--and an increasing number of Americans--who staunchly oppose the law.

InnoVida brought Bush on board its company in 2007, but the company went bankrupt in 2011, and its "founder went to jail and investors lost nearly all of their money," the Times reports: "It turned out that the leaders of InnoVida, a manufacturer of inexpensive building materials, had faked documents, lied about the health of the business and misappropriated $40 million in company funds, records show."

A Democrat "who lost millions on his investment in InnoVida," however, said that once he told Bush about the "major problems inside the company, the former governor acted swiftly and forcefully to investigate them" to protect the shareholders.

Nonetheless, Bush has been accused of "insufficient oversight" at a company that lost more than three-quarters of its value.
Get ready for a repeat of 2012 (and the words President Hillary Rotten Clinton) if Karl Rove and the GOP RINO establishment is dumb enough to have a nominee who served on a board that supported the destructive Obamacare.

But I'm sure Jebby will tell us it was "an act of love."

Obama Pushing "Card Check" By Unions Via Regulatory Fiat

"Card Check," or the ability of leftist labor unions to pressure employees to vote for unionization, has been a goal of Richard Milhous Obama's, and the consequences warned about back in 2008.

Obama couldn't get the legislation through Congress, but it appears his fat little commie thug Richard Trumka is right, it will happen in the second term.

But (as usual) Obama will bypass Congress and impliment it through regulations (Daily Caller).
The administration’s National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) proposed rules would allow for union elections — in which workers at a company vote whether or not to unionize — to be held 10 days after a petition is filed. And what, exactly, would be happening to the unions during those 10 days? The new rules require employers to disclose workers’ personal information, including phone numbers, home addresses, and information about when they work their shifts.

Insiders close to the situation believe the new rules will almost certainly go into effect with few or no fundamental changes.

“The members of the Board went through two days of grueling hearings that went into the evening. They asked plenty of probing questions. But I wonder if any minds were changed at all,” Workforce Fairness Institute spokesman Fred Wszolek, who recently testified at an NLRB hearing in opposition to the rule, told The Daily Caller.

“Certainly some parts of the proposed rule will be changed at the margin. But it seems very likely that going forward, union organizing elections will happen much more quickly and more private contact information of employees will be turned over to the unions,” Wszolek said.

“If Board members wanted to truly modernize these rules, they would do two things. First, leave the timetable alone. Thirty or forty days to hold an election is not a long time. Let people think about it. Second, if you’re going to give access to unions any personal email addresses a company has, fine. But let’s protect the privacy of workers by no longer requiring companies to give to the union the home addresses of workers. It’s very hard to intimidate or coerce a worker by email. But it’s much easier to intimidate or coerce a worker when you’re standing on their doorstep,” Wszolek said.

As TheDC previously reported, United Auto Workers (UAW) members in black shirts recently paced the assembly line intimidating workers during normal business hours before the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee voted not to unionize. The NLRB is holding a hearing Monday to determine whether or not to discard the plant’s election results, on the grounds that they were tainted by outside sources, and allow the plant to be unionized.
What that means, is that Obama and the Democrats want more unionization because they are bought and paid for by the unions.  For all the talk about the Koch Brothers influencing elections with money, liberals never mention how unions (along with George Soros) have funneled more money to Democrats than the "evil" Koch brothers.

Obama Regime Considering Bond Hearings For Illegal Aliens

Once again, it's another unconstitutional end-run around Congress. (Breitbart)
Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants.
According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more.
The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him as the "deporter in chief." That label has been proven to be nothing more than a myth in reports, not only from Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), but in the Los Angeles Times and The New York Times.
The American Civil Liberties Union has found that "871 of 1,262 immigration detainees who were given bond hearings after a September 2012 federal district court ruling in California were ordered released on bond, or released with an ankle monitor, regular check-ins or other restrictions."
The LA Times also notes that "Justice Department lawyers have spent years fighting proposals to require bond hearings," and the White House "has not yet decided whether to drop its objections to the federal court's decision or appeal to the Supreme Court."

How phony is Obama's claim of deporting so many illegals?  About as phony as his claim of 8 million people being "covered" by Obamacare.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson acknowledged Tuesday that his department’s deportation numbers are now mostly made up of illegal immigrants caught at the border, not just those from the interior, which means they can’t be compared one-to-one with deportations under President Bush or other prior administrations.  
No wonder no one believes a word that comes out of Obama's mouth.


IRS Scandal Gets Bigger. Lerner Wanted Conservative Groups Prosecuted, 49 Percent Polled Say White House Involved

Despite the attempts of the Demonrat party and their propagandists in the legacy media (NBC, SeeBS, ABC, NY Slimes, Washington ComPost), the IRS scandal of targeting conservative and Tea Party groups isn't going away.

Thanks to a FOI request by Judicial Watch, we're finding out more about how Lois Lerner wanted to abuse her power at the IRS by going to the racist Eric Holder's InJustice Department to prosecute conservatives.

J. Christian Adams explains at PJ Media.

Larry Noble, a law professor now with the Soros-funded Campaign Legal Center , was cited in the emails as someone agitating to jail conservatives who “falsely” report on IRS forms that they are not engaged in political speech. Lerner talked about setting up meetings with Justice Department election lawyers who wanted to talk about making Noble’s dreams a reality — this after Senator Sheldon Whitehouse raised the idea of criminal charges for conservatives who are not sufficiently quiet, charges that they falsely completed an IRS tax exemption form.
Their theory is a favorite among speech regulators in the Soros-funded left and academia. It goes like this: “Too much speech is bad (unless unions do it.) Groups who talk about things leftists find uncomfortable are necessarily political and thus should never have 501(c) tax exempt status. Criminally charge any group that said on their IRS tax exempt form that they were not political if they say things the left finds uncomfortable. Get Eric Holder’s Justice Department on the case.”   
The emails obtained by Judicial Watch reveal this is essentially what was going on behind the scenes at the IRS, DOJ, and with outside leftist interests.   The emails, so far, only name a few of the speech regulators involved. But there are many who don’t appear in the latest document dump that give life to the cause of limiting the First Amendment.  
Hans von Spakovsky, a former commissioner on the Federal Election Commission, is intimately familiar with the scope and power of the speech regulators. He said: “Ever since I came to Washington, I’ve been shocked at the liberal politicians like Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Chris Van Hollen, advocacy groups like Democracy 21 and Fred Wertheimer, and government bureaucrats at the FEC and the Justice Department who want to use the power of government to censor their opponents. They hate the First Amendment and would fit right into the Soviet Union.”  
All roads in the IRS scandal run through Citizens United , the Supreme Court case that sent the speech regulators into a frenzy when it allowed private citizens to spend money to express their views without government regulation. Even President Obama attacked Citizens United in a State of the Union address. Justice Samuel Alito mouthed his opinion about Obama’s truthfulness during the speech.   
Citizens United , in timing and substance, was the genesis of the IRS scandal.    
So who are the speech regulators seeking to impose government limits on the exercise of the First Amendment?   
Like bats in the belfry, they tend to congregate online at University of California at Irvine Law Professor Rick Hasen’s election blog.    
Hasen runs an online meeting hall for all the would-be speech totalitarians. They post, bluster, and kibitz about the latest news on their effort to erode the First Amendment and increase federal power. Whenever a free speech advocate seeks to contribute to the conversation at the blog, they are often deliberately given a cold shoulder and ignored, per plan. The ignored don’t understand that leftists aren’t interested in debate. Their pedigree requires the eradication of opposing ideas, not their incubation.    
But perhaps the ignored should be thankful. Being ignored is better than what the speech regulators have done in other places throughout history. Jail and truncheons are the usual tools of those who want to stamp out free speech. In America, the speech regulators have just begun to warm up to jail as a tool.    
That Hasen’s online hangout is hosted on government servers provides an interesting twist.    
Judicial Watch sent the University of California at Irvine a freedom of information request demanding Hasen’s emails to the White House and other government officials including any on the topic of speech regulations. The University told Judicial Watch to pound sand, and still hasn’t provided anything.
Yesterday’s IRS email revelation makes you wonder what Cal-Irvine is hiding.   So who are some of the other speech regulators who haven’t shown up on IRS scandal documents yet?   One of the top speech regulators is former White House counsel and Obama campaign lawyer Bob Bauer. As I noted at PJ Media:
Robert Bauer had the motive to direct IRS policy against Tea Party groups. He is a longtime opponent of First Amendment freedoms and an advocate of government-speech regulation. He also can’t stand the work the Tea Party is conducting to monitor and eradicate voter fraud, work the Republican Party and national campaigns have utterly failed to perform.  
During the 2008 election, while representing the Obama campaign, Bauer sent a threatening letter to the Justice Department demanding criminal investigations of people who had the audacity to speak about voter fraud. Bauer even singled out Sarah Palin in the letter. Anyone who “developed or disseminated” information about voter fraud, to Bauer, deserved the heavy boot of a criminal investigation. Read the letter; it reveals a nasty, thuggish, and lawless attitude toward political opposition.
There’s that jail thing again. They just can’t resist that totalitarian impulse against political opponents.    
Other campaigns have had speech regulator attorneys — even Republicans. Trevor Potter was John McCain’s head lawyer in 2008, and he founded the now Soros-funded Campaign Legal Center. He helped cook up the McCain-Feingold speech regulations.   Scads of well-funded groups also exist to stamp down free speech, groups like Common Cause and Demos.    
The new, more sinister IRS scandal is deadly dangerous to Democrats. It isn’t dangerous because bureaucrats took too long to approve tax exemption applications. It’s dangerous because it reveals the authoritarian impulses of powerful Democrats. First they tried to shut up political opposition through threats and bureaucracy. Then we learn yesterday that Democrats and leftists at the Justice Department, the United States Senate, and the Internal Revenue Service were discussing jailing political opponents.    
Just wait until the American people learn more about the modern American version of history’s speech regulators.
Notice the one name all these people are affiliated with? George Soros, the Democrat Party and Leftists big sugar daddy, who they gladly take his billions while bashing the Koch Brothers for funding conservative/libertarian groups.

Not a smidgen of corruption?  Think again.

Fox News now has a poll that spells trouble for the White House.
Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter.
The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.”
By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans.
Overall, 72 percent of voters disagree with the president when he says there is not even a “smidgen” of corruption regarding the IRS targeting conservative groups.

This is much bigger than Watergate. It is an attack on private citizens for expressing their First Amendment right to petition the government.  And yet the same liberals and leftists who will attack previous administrations for going after so-called "anti-war" and "anarchist" groups (mainly due to their violent protests and Communist affiliations) are silent when conservatives' right to free political speech come under assault.

Now what is needed is members of Congress who are willing to investigate this matter, instead of those who will do a show trial just to make it look like they're doing something.  A special counsel needs to be called as well, but don't count on that to happen while "Sobbin" John is Speaker of the House.

This is not about Obama, or Democrats. No one who peaceably expresses political thought should have the government go after them, even seek their prosecution, for the sake of political differences.  For those Democrats who want to continue the cover-up and encourage this abuse of power, what will you say when a corrupt Republican President might do the same thing to your groups?

Oh, didn't we see that 40 years ago?

Obama Wanted Ben Carson To Apologize, I Sensed This About President Thin-Skinned Back In 2006

Dr. Ben Carson, who made a big splash after his infamous National Prayer Breakfast speech where he ridiculed big government and socialist ideas in front of Richard Milhous Obama, said that he was asked by the White House to apologize for his comments (Daily Caller).
Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20.

“He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of the program, I received a call from some of the prayer breakfast organizers saying that the White House was upset and requesting that I call the president and apologize for offending him. I said that I did not think that he was offended and that I didn’t think that such a call was warranted.”

Conservatives rallied around Carson last year after his remarks, made from a podium as Obama sat just feet away. In his speech, he railed against “political correctness” and offered specific ideas for health care reform.

“Many have commented that the president appeared to be uncomfortable during my speech, but I was not paying particular attention to him or his reactions, as my comments were really directed more at the American people than the people on the dais,” Carson recalls. “At the conclusion of the program, the president approached me to shake my hand and thank me for my participation.”
The White House didn't get an apology, but Ben Carson got an IRS tax audit. And if you believe that was circumstantial, I have ocean front property in Phoenix to sell you.

Let me take you back to this text from Rush Limbaugh's radio show on December 13, 2006. I remember listening to this at work and thinking to myself "If this guy ever became President, God help us, because he's so obviously thin-skinned he can't take questioning or criticism."
Now, we have some EIB exclusive audio here. It's from Sunday in New Hampshire when Barack Obama made a speech up there. After his speech was over he made a beeline for Maureen Dowd and the audience. The camera kept rolling. We have this. I haven't seen it. I mean, it's not really "exclusive" to us. It's exclusive in the sense we're the only ones that are going to use it. Just listen. He goes up to Maureen Dowd. This is your sexy rock star, drop dead sex appeal, somebody you want to follow, somebody firm in his convictions. This guy is a rock, not just a star, and this is what he said to Maureen Dowd.

OBAMA (off mic): You talked about my ears, and I just want to put you on notice: I'm very sensitive about -- What I told them was, ''I was teased relentlessly when I was a kid about my big ears.'"

DOWD (purring): We're trying to toughen you up.

RUSH: Did you hear all that? Were you able to hear it? You want me to translate this? All right. Maureen Dowd has written about his big ears, and after his speech Barack Obama made a beeline to Maureen Dowd and said, "You talked about my ears, and I just want to put you on notice: I'm very sensitive about -- What at I told them was, 'I was teased relentlessly when I was a kid about my big ears.'" Maureen said, "We're just trying to tough you up." Just trying to toughen you up. I tend to personalize a lot of these things. I'm sorry, my friends, I'm like everybody else: everything is about me -- and I hear this, and I think, "If I went to a reporter and said, "You know, don't talk about X aspect of me. I'm very sensitive. I was made fun of my whole life because of X. Would you just stop? I'm putting you on notice that I'm very sensitive about that," instead of Maureen Dowd saying, "Come on, Rush! We're trying to toughen you up," it would be the subject of her next column.

The weak, cowardly, insecure and insensitive Rush Limbaugh begged me not to make fun of X!

But Maureen Dowd has decided that the Drive-By Media needs to toughen Barack up. Listen to the bite again now that you know what was said.

OBAMA (off mic): You talked about my ears, and I just want to put you on notice: I'm very sensitive about -- What I told them was, ''I was teased relentlessly when I was a kid about my big ears.'"

DOWD (purring): We're trying to toughen you up.

RUSH: We're just trying to toughen you up. You sexy, exotic rock star, sexy, sexy, sexy, we're just trying to toughen you up! (interruption) Snerdley is convinced that Maureen wants Barack Hussein Obama. (sigh) I don't even want to go there. I know more than you do about this and I'm not going to talk about it. Here is a question. An unidentified reporter said to Barack, "What do you make of the recent fascination that people have as they are getting to know you about your middle name being 'Hussein'?"
But too many people were getting thrills up their legs to notice this sensitive, thin-skinned little man child, who had whipped up such a cult-like following.

Rep. Steve Israel, Who Said GOP Base Is "Animated By Racism," Led Group Who Supported Anti-Semitic Occupy Movement

Show how all the Democrap Party has to run on is throwing the race card from the bottom of the deck, New York Congressman Steve Israel played the "card" on CNN yesterday (Gateway Pundit).
As George Will says, if you can’t win a political argument, pound the table and cry racism.
DCCC Chair Steve Israel says the Republican base is ‘racist.’
Via the NRCC Blog:
Candy Crowley: Do you think your Republican colleagues are racist?
DCCC Chair Steve Israel: Not all of them, no. Of course not. But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism.
Of course, Crowley just accepted the outrageous accusation and moved on.
Not surprising that Crowley, who was Obama's tag-team partner in the second Presidential debate of 2012, took Israel at face value.

But keep this fact in mind.

Despite one big allegation that is a proven smear (the infamous March 20, 2010) anti-Obamacare rally in Washington DC, there has been no outright racism at a Tea Party event.

However, the liberal "alternative" to the Tea Party, the squatters known as Occupy Wall Street was a movement that saw violence, property damage, sexual assualts, racism and anti-Semitism.













The DCCC, under Steve Israel's leadership, urged Democrats to "stand with" these anti-Semetic rabble-rousers (NY Post). The RNC ran this ad back in late 2011.


Why did Steve Israel, as leader of the DCCC, support a movement that is clearly motivated by bigotry, violence, Marxism and anti-Americanism?

Obama's Racial Demagoguery To Al Sharpton's Organization: The GOP Wants To Deny The Vote

Here's another example of how, despite what Richard Milhous Obama said on David Letterman back in September 2012, he does not represent all of America.

He only represents those he can frighten into voting for him and Democrats by using whatever demagoguery necessary, be it the phony "War on Women" or playing the race card.

Today, he used the podium at an organization headed by one of the most divisive figures in modern America, the alleged "Reverend" Al Sharpton, to employ racial demagoguery about voting rights being stripped away by those evil wascally Wepublicans (the Obama-friendly Politico).
President Barack Obama struck hard at restrictive voting rights laws Friday, calling them a Republican political tactic conceived to address a made-up problem.
Pretending that there’s widespread impropriety, he said, is just about keeping Democrats from winning.
“The real voter fraud is people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said, in a speech to Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network in New York — an organization that he said should serve as a national model for organizing people around voting, led by a man who deserved “a big round of applause.”
The voting rights argument is a key element of the White House’s strategy to have the president focus on boosting base turnout for the midterms, especially among core Obama voters.
“There are well-organized and well-funded efforts to undo [the] gains” of the civil rights movement, Obama told the largely African-American crowd. “Just as inequality feeds on justice, opportunity requires justice, and justice requires the right to vote.”
Democrats face a different landscape than they did in 2012, when they had the benefits of running against new voting laws that were being challenged in court without having to worry as much about their voters actually being blocked.
The laws are on the books. Obama isn’t on the ballot. And the party needs an issue that can rile up the base, raise money from the grassroots, rally volunteers and form a rhetorical entry point to a larger argument about how Republican policies are hurting the constituencies most threatened by voting restrictions.
“The right to vote — what kind of political platform is that? Why would you make that a part of your agenda, preventing people from voting? How can you defend that?” Obama said. “This recent effort to restrict the vote has not been led by both parties. It’s being led by the Republican Party.”
As Obama did Thursday in Austin in a speech commemorating the anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, he directly linked the struggle of African-Americans in the 1960s to the battle against voting laws today.
Obama did not announce any new policy, but did say that he was fully supportive of the efforts by Attorney General Eric Holder — who addressed the convention Wednesday, speaking about the priority he’s placed on voting rights cases.
“There’s a reason the agency he runs is called the Department of Justice,” Obama said.
You mean Eric "My People" Holder, the racist, black supremacist who dropped the case of the New Black Panther Party members who stood in the doorway of a voting area, telling white voters "you're about to be ruled by the black man, cracker."?

The Obama-boot lickers at the Politico didn't report on how Al Sharpton hugged a woman named Melowese Richardson, convicted of vote fraud, admitted voting six (6) times for the vote fraud denier Obama.


Not only that, Ms. Richardson sat on the board of a group that received a grant from Obama's EPA.  But just like protecting Socialist Security as a monument to FDR, Obama and Democrats want the voting rights act left alone as a monument to progressive Democrat racist Lyndon "I'll Have Those N'rs Voting Democrat For 200 Years" Johnson.

Also, for all the talk of conservatives and Tea Party members being "extremist," why do liberals not mind Obama and his fellow racist Holder speaking at a group headed by someone who has called Jews "diamond merchants," and used homophobic slurs, in addition to using the N-word against then New York Mayor David Dinkins?

And can we still consider that Obama is a racist?

Lyndon Johnson, The "Civil Rights President": "I'll Have Those N*ggers Voting Democrat..."

Yesterday, at the LBJ Presidential Library on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin, the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act being signed into law was celebrated, and the past three Democrat Presidents used it to celebrate their party and their 1964 standard-bearer as President, Lyndon B. Johnson (USA Today).
There was a time -- a long time -- when Democratic presidential candidates would not even utter the name Lyndon Baines Johnson. 
This week, the three Democrats elected president since Johnson traveled to Texas to honor the memory of LBJ -- a president once reviled for the Vietnam War, now revered for a domestic record that includes landmark civil rights laws. 
"We're here because the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act made it possible for Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama to be president of the United States," Clinton said during a speech Wednesday. 
Clinton spoke during a three-day summit on the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, an event that has drawn scores of lawmakers and civil rights activists from decades past.
The summit is part of what ex-Texas lieutenant governor and LBJ protege Ben Barnes called "the re-introduction of Johnson" more than four decades after his death in 1973. 
It's another example of how, like stock values, presidential reputations can rise and fall over time. It is now a buyer's market for Johnson, amid a string of golden anniversaries that include, this year, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and, next year, the Voting Rights Act of 1965. 
"LBJ was known as the Vietnam president," said Mark Updegrove, director of the Lyndon Johnson library in Austin. "But I think ultimately he'll be known as the civil rights president." 
Quite a change from 1992, when Democratic presidential nominee Bill Clinton made a campaign stop at the LBJ library but never mentioned Johnson by name -- even though the event took place on Johnson's birthday.
Well, (hanging my head) I was there at that event in 1992, which was a campaign rally for the Clinton/Gore ticket, and I remember the name of LBJ and the fact it was his birthday was mentioned a lot from the podium that day. Don't remember if Slick Willie uttered it though.

But the legacy of Lyndon Johnson as the "Civil Rights President" is outrageous, and an effort by liberals and Democrats to rewrite not only Johnson's past as a racist, but the racist legacy of the Democrat Party as well.

First of all, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was largely a result of John F. Kennedy, and would most likely have been signed by him, had he not been assassinated a few months earlier. (Forget the conspiracy theory that LBJ had him killed, JFK was killed by a lone Communist sympathizer, Lee Harvey Oswald).  Plus, the first Civil Rights 0ill was signed into law by Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower, but had been watered down by....Senate Majority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson.  James Taranto explains...
As Bruce Bartlett explains in "Wrong on Race: The Democratic Party's Buried Past" (available from the OpinionJournal bookstore):

In his January 10, 1957, State of the Union Address, Eisenhower renewed his request for civil rights legislation, which had passed the House but died in the Senate in the previous Congress due to Southern Democratic delaying tactics. . . .

Everyone knew that the critical fight on the civil rights bill would be in the Senate. . . . In that body, the key figure was Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson, who represented the [former] Confederate state of Texas and had been installed in his position by Southern Democrats precisely in order to block civil rights legislation. Until the 1950s, Johnson's record of opposition to all civil rights legislation was spotless. But he was ambitious and wanted to be president. 
After dragging his feet on the civil rights bill throughout much of 1957, Johnson finally came to the conclusion that the tide had turned in favor of civil rights and he needed to be on the right side of the issue if he hoped to become president. . . .

At the same time, the Senate's master tactician and principal opponent of the civil rights bill, Democrat Richard B. Russell of Georgia, saw the same handwriting on the wall but came to a different conclusion. He realized that the support was no longer there for an old-fashioned Democrat filibuster. . . . So Russell adopted a different strategy this time of trying to amend the civil rights bill so as to minimize its impact. Behind the scenes, Johnson went along with Russell's strategy of not killing the civil rights bill, but trying to neuter it as much as possible. . . .

Eisenhower was disappointed at not being able to produce a better piece of legislation. "I wanted a much stronger civil rights bill in '57 than I could get," he later lamented. "But the Democrats . . . wouldn't let me have it."
Liberals criticized Eisenhower for getting such a modest bill at the end of the day. But Johnson argued that it was historically important because it was the first civil rights bill to pass Congress since 1875. "Once you break virginity," he said, "it'll be easier next time."
But here's something else LBJ said about the 1957 Civil Rights bill.
"These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don't move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there'll be no way of stopping them, we'll lose the filibuster and there'll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It'll be Reconstruction all over again." 
But that doesn't compare to what Johnson was overheard saying to two Democrat governors on Air Force One, while he was President, and is attributed to Ronald Kessler from his book "Inside the White House."
“I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”
Johnson allegedly used the racial slur against Marin Luther King Jr., when King decided to attack American involvement in Vietnam due to LBJ's bungling and insistence of running the war from the White House.
President Lyndon Johnson is said to have admitted privately, "That g*ddamn nigger preacher may drive me out of the White House."
If you don't believe Johnson used that word, here's a YouTube clip of a phone call where Johnson casually drops the "N-word."


Real credit for passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act should go to Congressional Republicans, because it was Democrats like Al Gore Sr., Bill Clinton's mentor J. William Fulbright, liberal hero of Watergate Sam Ervin, and Robert "Sheets" Byrd (D-KKK) who opposed the act. Byrd even filibustered the bill for 14 hours on the Senate floor.

Some history you won't hear about from the liberal media, or in your history class, and the Democrat Party won't discuss it either.

BOMBSHELL: IRS' LERNER COLLUED WITH DEMOCRAT CUMMINGS AGAINST CONSERVATIVE GROUP

This important development broke this evening, the IRS' Lois Lerner, who oversaw the targeting of conservative/tea party groups for extra scrutiny in filing 501c4 status, colluded with liberal Maryland Democrat Elijah Cummings in targeting a Houston, TX conservative group True The Vote (Townhall).
New IRS emails released by the House Oversight Committee show staff working for Democratic Ranking Member Elijah Cummings communicated with the IRS multiple times between 2012 and 2013 about voter fraud prevention group True the Vote. True the Vote was targeted by the IRS after applying for tax exempt status more than two years ago. Further, information shows the IRS and Cummings' staff asked for nearly identical information from True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht about her organization, indicating coordination and improper sharing of confidential taxpayer information.
The first contact between the IRS and Cummings' staffers about True the Vote happened in August 2012. In January 2013, staff asked for more information from the IRS about the group. Former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner went out of her way to try and get information to Cummings' office.The information Cummings received was not shared with Majority Members on the Committee.
On January 28, three days after staffers requested more information, Lerner wrote an email to her deputy Holly Paz, who has since been put on administrative leave, asking, “Did we find anything?” Paz responded immediately by saying information had not been found yet, to which Lerner replied, “Thanks, check tomorrow please.”
The "Smoking Gun" E-mails 
On January 31, Paz sent True the Vote's 990 forms to Cumming's staff.
Up until this point, Rep. Cummings has denied his staff ever contacted the IRS about True the Vote and their activities during Oversight hearings. In fact, on February 6, 2014 during a Subcommittee hearing where Engelbrecht testified, Cummings vehemently denied having any contact or coordination in targeting True the Vote when attorney Cleta Mitchell, who is representing the group, indicated staff on the Committee had been involved in communication with the IRS. This was the exchange:
Ms. Mitchell: We want to get to the bottom of how these coincidences happened, and we’re going to try to figure out whether any – if there was any staff of this committee that might have been involved in putting True the Vote on the radar screen of some of these Federal agencies. We don’t know that, but we – we’re going to do everything we can do to try to get to the bottom of how did this all happen.
 Mr. Cummings:  Will the gentleman yield? 
Mr. Meadows:  Yes.
 Mr. Cummings:  I want to thank the gentleman for his courtesy. What she just said is absolutely incorrect and not true.
After the hearing, Engelbrecht filed an ethics complaint against Cummings for his targeting and intimidation of her organization.
Rep. Cummings has described the investigation into IRS targeting of conservative groups as a "witch hunt," and has tried multiple times to put the investigation on hold.
Of course the race-baiting Rep Cummings would call it a witch-hunt, because he's covering up his own wrong-doing.  I don't think it stops at Cummings either.

It came out earlier today that some IRS employees were found to be acting as campaigners for Richard Milhous Obama.
Internal Revenue Service employees encouraged taxpayers to vote for President Obama during his 2012 reelection campaign and disparaged Republicans, a federal ethics watchdog said Wednesday.
One IRS customer representative urged people calling into the agency to vote for Obama by “repeatedly reciting a chant based on the spelling of his last name,” the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) said in its announcement
The office is responsible for investigating cases in which people violate the Hatch Act, which bans federal employees from engaging in partisan campaign activities.
In that case, officials are “seeking significant disciplinary action.” 
"Disciplinary action" means promotion within the agency or up to the Regime.

If ever we needed more of a reason to abolish the IRS, this is it. No one, regardless of party, should be allowed to use the force of government to target Americans who lawfully express their First Amendment right to political speech.

The New McCarthyism By The Lavender Mafia: Shouting "Intolerance" & Then Using Intolerance Against Those Who Disagree With You

If you've followed politics and pop-culture for any amount of time further back than last week, you'd remember how the Left was always quick to condemn "intolerance," "McCarthy-esque" tactics, and "blacklists" that destroyed the careers of closet Communists in Hollywood.

Remember how liberal Hollywood treated director Elia Kazan (On The Waterfront) when he received an honory Oscar in 1999, presented by Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese?  If looks could kill, Kazan would have been murdered on that stage by the stares he got from that drug addict Nick Nolte and eunuch Ed Harris.




Remember, during the Bush Years, how the supposed "anti-war liberals" slammed any criticism of their outright rooting for our troops to lose, wrapping it in Old Glory and quoting Thomas Jefferson "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism."

Well, that was then, this is the age of Hopey Changey.  Dissent is no longer patriotic.  If you dare to oppose Richard Milhous Obama, it is RAAAAACISM.

And the blacklist has given way to the pinklist.  That is, if your name is found to support traditional marriage, or you gave money to support traditional marriage initiatives.  The Lavender Gestapo will come after you and your livelihood.

Like they did to Brendan Eich of Mozilla. Eich had given $1,000 to support Prop 8 in California. He supported keeping the definition of marriage to one man and one woman.

Eich held a personal view.  Never once did he wish to discriminate against gays, or tell them he didn't want them to use his product or anything like that.

Because Eich had a traditional view of marriage, those who claimed the mantle of dissent, diversity and tolerance became intolerant and wanted Eich removed from leadership of Mozilla.

Real tolerant, isn't it, of the Witch Hunters?



Ben Sharpiro started a petition against Mozilla, and many, such as my friend Bookworm Room, decided to no longer use Firefox brower.
As of today, I am no longer a Firefox user.  I think that, after you read about Brendan Eich’s travails, you’ll agree that you don’t want to be a Firefox user anymore either.
Back in 2008, when Prop. 8 was on the ballot asking California voters to legalize gay marriage, Mozilla co-founder and CEO Brendan Eich donated $1,000 to support traditional marriage.  Keep in  mind that, at the time Eich did this, President Barack Obama was on record supporting traditional marriage, a position he switched only after he’d secured his second term in the White House.
The same-sex marriage tyrants, having gotten hold of this information, didn’t waste their time doing something as enlightened as persuading Eich (as Obama was apparently persuaded) that his attitude was on the wrong side of history.  Instead, they did to him what they didn’t do to Obama:  they forced him to leave his company.  They destroyed his livelihood.  They abandoned reasoned debate in favor of thuggish tactics.
I’ve been unhappy with Firefox for awhile because it crashes constantly.  Inertia, however, kept me with it.  Today, hearing about the totalitarian attack on Eich for his temerity in supporting marriage as it has been understood since the dawn of human kind (man, equipped with tab A, ready to mate before God and civil society with woman, equipped with slot B), put an end to that inertia.  I’ve deleted Firefox from my hard drive.
I’m currently operating in Chrome.  I fully understand that the Google guys are also to the left of Left, but at least they haven’t (yet) destroyed someone’s life work for daring to support the same position that the whole world, through all of history, supported up until a few years ago, and that Obama either supported or lied about supporting up until only two years ago.
Another blogging friend, Donald Douglas, took on someone named Tara Dublin, on the whole issue of the Lavender Gestapo going after someone in Oregon.  He posted it at his blog. Following some of it on Twitter, I dedicded to join in.


But it was apparent that Ms Dublin, like most liberals, didn't want to debate, just wanted to drive-by, call names, and then run away when those stubborn things like facts were presented to her.



Our fellow blogger friend Robert Stacy McCain also had some fun with Ms Dublin.


This is what we're up against folks. If you dare dissent from the permitted group-think of the "progressive" left, re-education isn't enough for you. You will be stripped of your livelyhood.

Which is why it must be noted:

Obama Attends 2 Fundraisers Night Of Ft Hood Shooting But Cancelled Fundraiser Due To Sandy Hook

How much does Richard Milhous Obama respect our troops?  Not very much.

He uses the military as a lab for his liberal social experimentation, cuts their benefits, and ties their hands behind their backs with his Rules of Engagement.

And he fundraises the night there's another shooting at Ft. Hood (ABC News).
President Barack Obama vowed that investigators will get to the bottom of a shooting incident Wednesday at Fort Hood, Texas, seeking to reassure the nation whose sense of security once again has been shaken by mass violence.


In a hastily arranged statement, Obama said he and his team were following the situation closely but that details about what happened at the sprawling Army post were still fluid. He said the shooting brought back painful memories of the 2009, when 13 were killed at the same post in the deadliest attack on a domestic military installation in history.

...Obama spoke at the Chicago Cut Steakhouse, where he is attending a private roundtable discussion for the Democratic National Committee. Twenty-five supporters will attend that event, each paying up to $32,400.

Around 7 p.m., President Obama will attend a dinner reception at a private residence in Lincoln Park. Fifty-five supporters paid up to $10,000 to attend this private reception.

President Obama will only be in Chicago for a few hours before heading back to the White House. In anticipation of President Obama's visit, some closures on Lake Shore Drive are in place and LaSalle Street north of the Chicago River is also closed in the River North neighborhood. The president is expected to leave Chicago around 8:30 p.m.
Compare that to what happened after the horrific Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting (Washington ComPost).
President Obama has canceled a planned visit to Portland, Me. in the wake of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn. on Friday morning that left 27 people dead, 20 of them children.
The president was planning to champion his "fiscal cliff" plan in a speech at the University of Southern Maine next Wednesday, part of an effort to involve supporters around the country in the budget fight. 
So why couldn't he have shown the same respect to the families at Ft. Hood and our military members?

Remember in November 2009 how it took Obama almost two minutes, after a few "shout outs," before he addressed the jihadist attacks there that his regime refuses to label as terrorism, just "workplace violence?"


Oh well, they're just good for a photo op.

Ft Hood Twitter page

Unconfirmed - three soldiers were shot.

Not sure if there is a link yet, but two days ago, it was reported that a "one-time" recruit planning a "Ft Hood style jihad" was being hunted by authorities.

UPDATE - KENS in San Antonio and KVUE in Austin are reporting one dead. KENS said the shooting took place near the transportation motor pool.

Fort Hood confirms active shooter on post with one dead



One shooter has apparently been caught, another is being sought, according to the Bell County, TX sheriff.

According for Fox 7 in Austin, a senior defense offical says one shooter is dead and 14 are injured. There may have only been one shooter. (?)

Since 1993 members of our military have been disarmed on military bases thanks to former President Bill Clinton, it was one of his first acts as President. The USS Cole bombing, 2009 Ft Hood shooting and recent DC Naval Yard shooting has not changed it.  Why?

Meanwhile, the Fundraiser in Chief is in Chicago holding another Demoncrap fundraiser. Just like Benghazi, the SOB doesn't let anything get in the way of fundraising.

Via CBS: "Sources identified the suspect as 34-year-old soldier Ivan Lopez. A source said the violence apparently stemmed from some sort of soldier dispute."

A poster at FreeRepublic found the following link of an Ivan Lopez, not sure if this might be the same person.



Now word is the shooter (Ivan Lopez???) is "possibly" dead.

10 pm - "All clear" given at Ft. Hood. Three are dead, as well as Ivan Lopez. Eleven others are wounded.

Pray tonight for Ft. Hood and the families.
