2,500 New Documents ID’d In White House-IRS Taxpayer Harassment Cases

 

 

” In a shocking revelation, the Treasury Inspector General has identified some 2,500 documents that “potentially” show taxpayer information held by the Internal Revenue Service being shared with President Obama’s White House.

  The discovery was revealed to the group Cause of Action, which has sued for access to any of the documents. It charges that the IRS and White House have harassed taxpayers.

  In an email from the Justice Department’s tax office, an official revealed the high number of documents, suggesting that the White House was hip deep in probes of taxpayers, likely including conservatives and Tea Party groups associated with the IRS scandal.

  In requesting a delay in the delivery date of the documents, Justice told Cause of Action, “The agency [Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration] has located 2,500 potentially responsive documents and anticipates being able to finish processing 2,000 of these pages by the December 1 date. It needs the additional two weeks to deal with the last 500 pages to determine if they are responsive and make any necessary withholdings.”

Ferguson Woman Slams Protesters: They’ve Ruined The Community, It Will Now Be A ‘Ghost Town’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Following the announcement that Officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted by a Missouri grand jury, riots broke out in the city of Ferguson, MO.

  Sara Sidner of CNN interviewed one local resident, who expressed her concern for Ferguson’s future.

“ I mean, this is crazy,” the resident said.  “I mean, the business didn’t do anything. If they were going to do something, get the right people, if they have to do it.

  When asked what she thought would happen to her community, the resident was pessimistic.

“ They’re not going to rebuild,” the resident said. “It’s going to be like a ghost town pretty soon.” “

Employee Fired After Posting Pictures Of DHS Vehicles Parked In Hotel Parking Lot

 

 

 

 

 

 

” What happens in public isn’t afforded an expectation of privacy — unless you’re the Department of Homeland Security. The DHS is all about shutting down people taking photos in, around or of public structures. According to the many piles of useless paperwork compiled by the many useless Fusion Centers, the most effective terrorist weapon is any device that captures still images or video.

  The nation is loaded with phone-wielding terrorists. But thanks to the swift corrective action applied by a former Secret Service agent and the multi-billion dollar agency, guests at the Drury Park Plaza Hotel in Chesterfield, Missouri, are safe from the terrorist activity of 28-year-old US Navy veteran (and now, former hotel Houseman) Mark Paffrath.

  Mark says that on Thursday after work he snapped 2 photographs and a short video of several dozen Homeland Security vehicles in the parking garage. He then uploaded them to his Facebook page. In his post he writes “why are all the cop cars here…I wonder if it has anything to do with Ferguson”, he also included the hashtags #Ferguson #NoJusticeNoPeace.

Hooray for the First Amendment! … oh, wait.

  On Friday, shortly after arriving to work at the Drury Plaza Hotel, Mark stated that he was called to the office of Jeff Baker, the General Manager. Upon arriving Mr. Baker advised Mark that he needed to remove the photos and video from Facebook. Mark immediately complied and removed the post. Mark then continued and finished his shift.

  A private company decides to insert itself into a situation where no one — not even the DHS — needed to step in. Having achieved its goal of suppression, one would think the story ends here. But it doesn’t.”

Getting Fired Is Mission: Impossible For Federal Bureaucrats In The Obama Era

 

 

 

 

” Federal managers have fired fewer bad employees each year since President Obama took office.

  Fewer than 4,900 career civil servants were fired in fiscal year 2013 out of 1.4 million — about one out of every every 300 employees — according to Office of Personnel Management data.

  The figures were 5,700 in 2010, 5,500 in 2011, and 5,200 in 2012. Only partial data was available for fiscal 2014, but it was on track for 4,800, the lowest in recent memory.

  There are also about 7,700 senior executives in the federal government, who are held to a higher standard than those in the General Schedule rank and file.

  But only five in the Senior Executive Service were fired in 2012, seven in 2013 and none in the first half of 2014.

  Both of Congress’ new top bureaucracy watchers — Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, and Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis. — have identified the inability to get rid of bad federal employees as a top reform target.”

Poll: Latino Voters Want More, More, More

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A new poll of Latino voters finds that most want President Obama to issue more executive orders to cover all illegal immigrants and protect them from deportation if Congress doesn’t agree to comprehensive immigration reform.

  The Latino Decisions survey found that 73 percent of the 405 registered voters polled want “additional executive orders” to protect immigrant workers not impacted by Obama’s decision last week targeted at four to five million parents facing deportation.

“ We would prefer much more,” said Oscar Chacon, executive director of the National Alliance of Latin American and Caribbean Communities.

  He added that 2016 presidential candidates should be welcoming to immigrants or face a voter backlash. “We will make sure that it is a central issue in the coming election,” he said.

  The poll, conducted on behalf of Presente.org and Mi Familia Vota, also found that 64 percent of the Latino voters know “somebody who is an undocumented immigrant.” Some 42 percent said that they were both a friend and a family member.

  Obama’s move won overwhelming support from those polled, with 89 percent supporting it strongly or somewhat strongly.

“ This 89 percent is the highest and most unified we have ever found,” said Matt Barreto, co-founder of Latino Decisions.

  Republicans took a big hit in the poll, with most, 64 percent, blaming Republicans for inaction on immigration reform. “

 

 

    Given the oft-stated fact that we all came from immigrants at one time or another , which is true , we still cannot recall any of our immigrant fore-bearers either expecting or receiving the kind of special treatment now deemed to be deserved by the latest influx of foreigners . Since when is everyone “entitled” to citizenship ?

Obama Leads Democrats Back To The Wilderness

 

 

 

” For all of the hysteria leading to President Obama’s immigration executive order, it turned out to be much ado about little. Except that Obama just dispersed the remaining asset so desperately needed by the Democrats in 2016, perhaps beyond.

  Of course the hysteria was justified when reckoning Obama’s constitutional by-pass. Yet at the same time overwrought, when his action is seen as mere feather-puffing exhibitionism in his habitual pattern of statutory abuse throughout his entire presidency.

  Obama’s willful refusal to enforce boarder security, five years pre-dating this EO, deliberately nullifying our nation’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, is ground enough for Republicans to formally charge the president with failing to uphold the Constitution. What’s new this time around?

  Nothing in this EO affects the reality on the ground.  More fouette than grand jete, and the timing for its narrow spin gives Republicans ample time for a proper grand pas….

  Obama’s EO is tepid impotent dishwater, hardly worth interrupting the Republicans’ early trek over the river and through the woods to Grandma’s house for Thanksgiving.  Jumping up and down in protest might burn off a few stuffing and apple tart calories; but don’t tear an ACL doing it.

Border security couldn’t get much worse, absent constructing multiple EZpass fast lanes. Genuine deportations (as opposed to turning back people at the border) are already laughably low as interior enforcement actions are fewer than arrests from border patrol interdictions — as rare as even they seem to be — barely exceeding the number of tailgaters at a couple of SEC college football games this past Saturday.

  And as we see from the DOJ prioritization of targeting illegals for deportation, Obama’s decree merely restates his status quo de facto amnesty style pardon of drug dealers, sex abusers, gun offenders, and drunk drivers.

  They weren’t getting deported before now anyhow…as the Center for Immigration Studies reported a year ago:

  • ICE is carrying a case load of 1.8 million aliens who are either in removal proceedings or have already been ordered removed. Less than two percent are in detention, which is the only proven way to ensure departure.
  • As of the end of July 2013 there were 872,000 aliens – nearly half of ICE’s total docket – who had been ordered removed but who had not left the country.
  • The State Department continues to issue tens of thousands of visas annually to citizens of countries that refuse to take back their countrymen who are ordered removed from the United States. Many of these are violent criminals. “

In Case You Haven’t Heard A Oklahoma Teen Boy Bragged About Raping Someone And No One Is Doing Anything About It

 

 

 

 

” The teenage boy in question is named Tristen Cole Killman. From the reports on other blogging sites, this is basically what happened. 

  Tristen Cole Killman has allgedly raped 3 girls at Norman High School in Oklahoma. Since this issue has been taken to social media, these girls have since been bullied by classmates and even have been kicked out of school.

  The victims are between 14 and 16 years old. The first victim is a 16 year old girl and was raped in January but did not come out until after. The second victim was allegedly raped on September 19th and is 16 years old. This rape is the one in which there is a video of and he admits to it in another video. The third victim is a 14 year old girl and was raped 4 days after the second.

  The school’s reasoning for kicking these girls out? “Disseminating a video of Tristen penetrating one of the alleged rape victims.” YEA, you read that correctly, THERE IS A VIDEO OF HIM RAPING THE GIRL!

  Though the local law enforcement says that it is “actively” investigating these chargers, Tristen continues to walk free. 

  This small-town issue has been brought to the forefront of feminist bloggers because of the actions of the Norman feminist knitting club. According to them, the teenage girls have been attacked through social media by classmates for speaking out. Like many other schools, Norman High School has a “strict” anti-bullying policy that includes cyberbullying. So, why did they kick the girls out for shaming their rapist and nothing has been done to those who have been bullying them and actually breaking a school code of conduct. The bullying of the first victim, started roughly after the assault. Tristen, who had shot the video of him raping the first victim in September, traveled fast through the school.

  Now, from my understanding, this video was even marketed as rape. A student, after seeing the video, went up to the victim and said “I hear you love being raped in the ass.” Like WHAT?! This is how bad our rape culture is, that students have seen a video that is even shown as rape and decide to harass the victim and not the rapist!! “

Political Correctness At The Indianapolis Star

” Cue the Perpetually Offended Brigade.  A group on Twitter called the Latino Rebels freaked out, crying “RACISM!” and “THIS IS OFFENSIVE.”  They weren’t the only ones.  Plenty of people who enjoy playing the race card whenever possible, and who enjoy silencing anyone with whom they disagree in the name of political correctness jumped on the bandwagon to feign outrage over Varvel’s cartoon.

  So, on Saturday, the executive editor of the Star, Jeff Taylor, took down the cartoon altogether, and wrote an editorial apologizing for putting it up.  He said, “On Friday, we posted a Gary Varvel cartoon at indystar.com that offended a wide group of readers. Many of them labeled it as racist. Gary did not intend to be racially insensitive in his attempt to express his strong views about President Barack Obama’s decision to temporarily prevent the deportation of millions of immigrants living and working illegally in the United States. But we erred in publishing it.

  The cartoon depicted an immigrant family climbing through a window of a white family’s home as Thanksgiving dinner was served. I was uncomfortable with the depiction when I saw it after it was posted. We initially decided to leave the cartoon posted to allow readers to comment and because material can never truly be eliminated once it is circulating on the web. But we are removing the cartoon from the opinion section of our website, as well as an earlier version posted on Facebook that showed one character with a mustache.” 

Feel free to tweet the Star or respond to their editorial to let them know that they shouldn’t allow themselves to be bullied. And while you’re at it, let Gary know that you think race-baiters suck, and that his cartoon was great. “

Obama’s Next Step: Government Task Force For ‘New Americans’

 

 

 

Fears that President Obama would attempt to assimilate immigrant communities into a new America that entrenches multiculturalism and acceptance of large government—in other words, an America that differs in important ways from the country we once knew—are being sadly confirmed.

  The White House on Friday quickly followed the president’s controversial executive order by announcing the formation of a task force that in fact attempts to do just that.

  The presidential memorandum states:

  Our success as a Nation of immigrants is rooted in our ongoing commitment to welcoming and integrating newcomers into the fabric of our country. It is important that we develop a Federal immigrant integration strategy that is innovative and competitive with those of other industrialized nations and supports mechanisms to ensure that our Nation’s diverse people are contributing to society to their fullest potential.

  Therefore, I am establishing a White House Task Force on New Americans, an interagency effort to identify and support State and local efforts at integration that are working and to consider how to expand and replicate successful models. The Task Force, which will engage with community, business, and faith leaders, as well as State and local elected officials, will help determine additional steps the Federal Government can take to ensure its programs and policies are serving diverse communities that include new Americans.

  The insistence on diversity is not happenstance. The president clearly does not seek E Pluribus Unum, but to entrench the balkanized America and the “minority vs. majority” discourse that has governed the nation’s thinking since the 1970s.”

FBI Nabs Two Aspiring Ferguson Protesters With Guns, Explosives

 

 

 

 

 

 

” When I first heard about this story on Twitter and mentioned it, I was immediately shouted down by some left side tweeters who claimed that this was a “set-up” or a “mistake” or a report which had been “debunked” already. However, I’ve yet to find a single, reputable news outlet which is backing down on it, including not only NBC News and Reuters, but Talking Points Memo. (And if anyone was going to pull the plug, it would have been the latter.)

  What are we discussing? The FBI has nabbed two individuals heading for Ferguson who were allegedly engaged in straw purchases of guns, as well as explosives.

  Federal law enforcement officials say two men arrested Friday, now held on gun charges, are suspected of trying to acquire pipe bombs with the intent of using them during protests in Ferguson, Missouri…

  Court documents say the two men, Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Davis, were arrested after they made false statements while trying to buy two pistols at a sporting goods store in Hazelwood, Missouri. They currently face only the firearms charges, though officials say other charges are pending.

The story gets even more convoluted. “

” Rather than claiming 97 percent of scientists believe in man-made global warming, hopefully now some media outlets will revise that number closer to 50 percent.

  Contrary to the repeated insistence of both climate alarmists and the media, scientists do not all agree on the standard climate alarmism talking points.  A Purdue University scholar, surveying scientists in the agricultural sector including climatologists, found surprising disagreement on humanity’s role in climate change. These findings, though contrary to popular narrative on climate change, are unsurprising to anyone familiar with the prevalence of dissent in the scientific community.

  Linda Prokopy, a Professor of Natural Resource Social Science at Purdue University, surveyed more than six thousand farmers and scientists and found widespread disagreement on human contributions to climate change. While 90 percent of scientists and climatologists surveyed thought the climate was changing, only about 50.4 percent contended that humans were the primary cause of these changes.

  More shocking was that just 53 percent of climatologists surveyed thought “Climate change is occurring, and it is caused mostly by human activities.” While that number of climatologists was small, the result is still significant.

  This evidence is inconvenient to the many media outlets that have endlessly repeated that 97 percent of scientists endorse the global warming hypothesis. Prominent outlets like NBC and The New York Times, as well as countless others, have effectively shut down debate by asserting there is no scientific debate. “

Judge Jeanine Ravages Obama’s Lawless Immigration Orders

Elections Matter?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” “Elections matter,” declared President Obama in his 2012 victory speech. “Elections matter,” he reiterated shortly before the 2014 midterms.

  But it turns out they don’t. Not to him. You gotta hand it to the guy: It would be hard to devise a more open expression of contempt for the will of the people than what he’s just done. An election was held. His party lost, badly. And, without waiting for the new guys even to take their seats, in the so-called “lame-duck session” (an unnecessary carbuncular proceduralism most developed nations manage to do without), the President tells the – oh, what’s the word? – “citizenry”, “Hey, thanks for taking the trouble to drive to the polling station the other day. Leave your name at the desk and if we need you for cheering extras at my photo-op we’ll get back to you.” You can change legislators. Meanwhile, he’ll change the legislation.

  I’m getting weary of the monarchical comparisons, which are a bit of an insult to real monarchs. The Obama model seems to owe more to Judge Dredd, the popular comic-book figure with the power to arrest, convict, sentence and execute as he does what’s necessary to bring hope and change to a dystopian megalopolis. Likewise, President Dredd: “He is the Law, and you’d better believe it!” A contempt for the people and for constitutional and legal restraints is what ties the President’s actions on Thursday night to Eric Holder’s corrupt justice department to Lois Lerner’s corrupt revenue agency to Jonathan Gruber’s corrupt health commissariat (merely to skim the surface of the most recent additions to the unending Obama-scandals document dump).

  To express common-or-garden contempt for the will of the people, Obama could have simply repealed another handful of inconvenient paragraphs from Obamacare or made Lois Lerner Attorney-General, but the form of contempt he chose is especially exquisite: “legalizing” millions of foreign law-breakers and setting them on the path to US citizenship. The chief of state has heard the voice of the people and his message to them is: “Yeah, whatever, I can always get another people. Hey, here comes five million or so right now, plus another ten million in chain-migration relatives down the road…” “

” The average price for a pound of ground beef climbed to another record high$4.156 per pound — in the United States in October, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

  In August, the average price for a pound of all types of ground beef topped $4 for the first time, hitting $4.013, said the BLS.  In September, the average price jumped .083 cents to $4.096 per pound, an increase of 2.1 percent in one month.

  In October, which is the latest data from the BLS, the average price for a pound of ground beef ($4.156) increased 1.4 percent from September.

  A year ago, in October 2013, the average price for a pound of ground beef was $3.389 per pound. Since then, it has climbed 76.5 cents, or about 22.6 percent in one year.

  Five years ago, in October 2009, the average price for a pound of ground beef was $2.177, according to the BLS. The price has since climbed by $1.977 per pound, or 90.8 percent. “

AG Nominee Loretta Lynch Boasts Having Seized $904 Million Through Asset Forfeitures In 2013 Alone

 

 

 

” Civil asset forfeiture is a controversial policy in which the government seizes private property that it believes was either gained through the commission of a crime or used to commit one. However, the items being seized sometimes belong to someone who was never accused of a crime at all or people who later turn out to be completely innocent. Since a civil process is used to seize the items in question, individuals facing the loss of property do so without the benefit of the level of due process that would ordinarily be afforded a criminal defendant.

  The Washington Post notes that, under President Obama, civil asset forfeitures have doubled. Now, as Eric Holder steps aside as US Attorney General, his potential replacement, nominee and US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Loretta Lynch, recently announced that her office seized over $904 million in asset forfeitures in 2013 alone.

  According to a quote from The Wall Street Journal’s editorial page, “As a prosecutor Ms. Lynch has also been aggressive in pursuing civil asset forfeiture, which has become a form of policing for profit. She recently announced that her office had collected more than $904 million in criminal and civil actions in fiscal 2013, according to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.” The editorial calls for senators to ask questions in an effort to clarify Lynch’s views on the controversial policy. “

Obama’s Amnesty Threatens To Shut Constitution

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Pundits warn that a funding fight over the president’s move to grant de facto amnesty to illegal aliens threatens a politically risky government shutdown. But there’s something much more important at stake here.

  The Founders had good reason to give Congress the power of the purse: Short of impeachment, it’s the most effective way to stop a lawless president from disobeying the will of Congress and usurping powers not granted by the Constitution.

  The question is: Will Congress use this power to thwart President Obama’s shredding of the Constitution with his executive amnesty plan? “

 

 

Even some renowned liberals are recognizing the threat to our Constitution posed by “King Obama’s” unilateral action …

 

 

” There’s more at stake here than mere political fortunes. We are at the constitutional tipping point that Georgetown University law professor Jonathan Turley warned us about as Obama continues to wield executive authority that he himself once said he did not have.

  We live in a constitutional republic, and the president who says he cannot wait for the Congress to act ignores a Constitution that says he has to. Article I, Section 8 gives Congress exclusive authority to “establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization” and Article II, Section 3 says that it’s the president’s duty “to take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”

  Professor Turley told the House Judiciary Committee at a Dec. 3 hearing that Obama’s abuse of executive power has grown to the point that “he’s becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid.” “

Bombshell: Email Proves That White House, DOJ Targeted Reporter Sharyl Attkisson

 

 

 

” Judicial Watch reports that the Obama administration has turned over about 42,000 pages of documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal. The administration was forced to turn the documents over to Judicial Watch in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. Judicial Watch is posting them on its web site. The administration turned them over on November 18, 2014.

  One of the documents provides smoking gun proof that the Obama White House and the Eric Holder Justice Department colluded to get CBS News to block reporter Sharyl Attkisson. Attkisson was one of the few mainstream media reporters who paid any attention to the deadly gun-running scandal.

  In an email dated October 4, 2011, Attorney General Holder’s top press aide, Tracy Schmaler, called Attkisson “out of control.” Schmaler told White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz that he intended to call CBS news anchor Bob Schieffer to get the network to stop Attkisson.

  Schultz replied, “Good. Her piece was really bad for the AG.”

  Schultz also told Schmaler that he was working with reporter Susan Davis, then at the National Journal, to target Rep. Darrel Issa (R-CA). Issa led the House investigation into Fast and Furious. Davis now works at USA Today. In the email chain, Schultz tells Schmaler that he would provide Davis with “leaks.”

  Davis wrote a critical piece on Issa a few weeks later.

  Attkisson was later subjected to hacking of her computer by people who remain unknown, but who likely belong to a government agency. She and CBS parted ways earlier in 2014, and Attkisson has since said that the network blocked her reports from airing.

  Update: More about Schmaler here, here, here and here. “

Jon Stewart Calls Out Not-Emperor Obama’s Powerlust By Pointing Out Something He’s Overlooked

 

 

 

” Remember when President Obama, when asked about what he would do to “ensure more people aren’t being deported,” deferred by saying:

My job is to execute laws that are passed.

And… 

I’m the President of the United States. I’m not the emperor of the United States.

Jon Stewart remembers. And he’s noticed how the President’s latest words on the extent of his presidential powers don’t exactly square with his previous declaration that he is not “the emperor.”

I’m going to do what I can do through executive action.
