Why Bridgegate made headlines but Obama’s IRS scandal didn’t

Most government scandals involve the manipulation of the system in obscure ways by people no one has ever heard of. That is why George Washington Bridgegate is nearly a perfect scandal — because it is comprehensible and (as they say in Hollywood) “relatable” to everyone who has ever been in a car. This is the reason this one is not going to go away so easily, even if one accepts the contention that Gov. Chris Christie had nothing whatsoever to do with it.

Government officials and political operatives working for Christie, for weird and petty reasons, chose to make traffic worse. That’s the takeaway. When they are reminded of the fact that people working on Christie’s behalf thought it was a good political game to mire tens of thousands of their fellow Americans in the nightmarish gridlock that is a daily dreaded prospect for tens of millions, they will be discomfited by that and by the politician in whose name it was done.

And yet, you know what is also something everybody would find “relatable”? Politicians who sic the tax man on others for political gain. Everybody has to deal with the IRS and fears it. Last year, we learned from the Internal Revenue Service itself that it had targeted ideological opponents of the president for special scrutiny and investigation — because they were ideological opponents.

That’s juicy, just as Bridgegate is juicy. It’s something we can all understand, it speaks to our greatest fears, and it’s the sort of thing TV newspeople could gab about for days on end without needing a fresh piece of news to keep it going.

And yet, according to Scott Wheelock of the Media Research Center, “In less than 24 hours, the three networks have devoted 17 times more coverage to a traffic scandal involving Chris Christie than they’ve allowed in the last six months to Barack Obama’s Internal Revenue Service controversy.”

Why? Oh, come on, you know why. Christie belongs to one political party. Obama belongs to the other. You know which ones they belong to. And you know which ones the people at the three networks belong to, too: In surveys going back decades, anywhere from 80% to 90% of Washington’s journalists say they vote Democratic.

Scandals are not just about themselves; they are about the media atmosphere that surrounds them. They are perpetuated and deepened by the attention of journalists, whose relentless pursuit of every angle keeps the story going. That is exactly what has been missing from the IRS scandal from its outset; Republicans in Congress have been the dogged pursuers, not the press.

There was plenty of material. Just as journalists remain skeptical today about who exactly might have gotten the idea for the lane closures, they could have been asking without letup who got the idea to dig into conservative tax-status applications. Several officials at the IRS resigned, retired and took the Fifth, just as was the case with Christie-aligned Port Authority officials.

It’s pretty clear the questions about how high up Bridgegate went are going to be pursued far more diligently than they have been in the IRS case.

What gives?

There is a fundamental misunderstanding among conservatives about the causes of partisan media bias — the reason there is unequal coverage of scandals of this kind. It exists not because there is a conscious effort to soft-pedal bad news for politicians you like and to push hard on bad news for politicians you don’t.

It’s actually more personal — more relatable, shall we say—than that.

Journalists know the Obamans. Intimately. They know them from college, they know them from work, they know them from kids’ soccer. They’re literally married to them.

To the journalists, the Obamans don’t look like crooks and cheats. Far from it. For them, it’s like looking in a mirror.

In September, Elspeth Reeve of The Atlantic Wire took note of 24 major journalists who have taken posts at senior levels in the Obama administration. All of them have worked for decades in various news organizations, thus creating personal ties and bonds of affection with literally hundreds of working reporters and editors.

The journalists are not covering up for their friends and their spouses. They just believe the people they know could not be responsible for behaving badly, or cravenly, or for crass political advantage —and the tone they strike when such things are discussed is often one of offense, as though it is a sign of low character to believe otherwise. It would be, well, like believing the journalists themselves were crooks.

It’s fair to say that most conservatives don’t know people in the Obama administration, and they dislike and disagree with its policies. When they look at it, their dislike and lack of any personal connection make it easier for them to see officials mired in scandal and tush-covering cover-up. This is a direct analogue to the way liberals — of whom journalists comprise a central cohort — viewed the George W. Bush and Reagan administrations.

They saw people with whom they disagreed and who they thought were bad for the country and so found it much easier to believe they were acting out of malign motive and doing evil.

Christie may be entirely innocent of all wrongdoing. Or there may be some connection, even a very tenuous and suggestive one. But there will be little let-up now.

For in the end, because Christie is a Republican. Christie isn’t them.

Most Americans don’t realize we have elected a president whom we know very little about.


Researchers have discovered that Obama’s autobiographical books are little more than PR stunts, as they have little to do with the actual events of his life. The fact is we know less about President Obama than perhaps any other president in American history and much of this is due to actual efforts to hide his record. This should concern all Americans.

A nation-wide network of researchers has sprung up to attempt to fill in the blanks, but at every opportunity Obama’s high-priced lawyers have built walls around various records or simply made them disappear. It is estimated that Obama’s legal team has now spent well over $1.4 million dollars blocking access to documents every American should have access to. The question is why would he spend so much money to do this?

The president who campaigned for a more “open government” and “full disclosure” will not unseal his medical records, his school records, his birth records or his passport records. He will not release his Harvard records, his Columbia College records, or his Occidental College records—he will not even release his Columbia College thesis. All his legislative records from the Illinois State Senate are missing and he claims his scheduling records during those State Senate years are lost as well. In addition, no one can find his school records for the elite K-12 college prep school, Punahou School, he attended in Hawaii.

What is he hiding? Well, for starters, some of these records will shed light on his citizenship and birth.

For example, Obama’s application to Punahou School – now mysteriously missing – would likely contain a birth certificate.                     

And, according to attorney Gary Kreep, “his Occidental College records are important as they may show he attended there as a foreign exchange student.” Indeed, Obama used his Indonesian name “Barry Soetoro” while attending Occidental. Kreep has filed lawsuits challenging Obama’s eligibility to be president and as part of his lawsuit he requested Obama’s records from Occidental. However, Obama’s lawyers quickly moved to stop Occidental from honoring this request.

Furthermore, now that at least three document authentication experts have declared the scanned “Certificate of Live Birth” Obama’s campaign team gave to a pro-Obama website to be an obvious phony; we know that he is hiding something here as well.

Over 49 separate law suits have been filed on the eligibility/birth certificate issue alone, with several of the suits making it all the way the United States Supreme Court, only to be denied a full hearing.

Saudi Prince Al-Walid bin Talah

What’s more, there are questions about how he paid for his Harvard Law School education since, despite a claim by Michele Obama, no one has produced any evidence that he received student loans. The Obamas will not release any student loan details despite repeated requests from the Chicago Tribune. However, it appears that his Harvard education may have been paid for by a foreign source. Khalid Al-Mansour, an advisor to Saudi prince Al-Walid bin Talah, told Manhattan Borough president, Percy Sutton, that he was raising money for Obama’s Harvard tuition. Incidentally, Prince Tala is the largest donor to CAIR, a Muslim group declared by the U.S. Government in 2007 as an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorist financing trial. At least three of CAIR’s leaders have been indicted for terrorist activities. Al-Mansour’s admission opens up speculation as to whether Muslim interests have assisted Obama’s career in the hope he would eventually be in a position someday to promote their interests.

More recently, it was discovered that Obama’s Selective Service card may have been doctored. Federal law requires all American males to register for the Selective Service (the draft) in case a major war broke out. Blogger Debbie Schlussel has discovered solid evidence that Obama’s Selective Service registration form was submitted not when he was younger as required, but rather in 2008 and then altered to look older. Indeed, the forgers forgot to alter the “Document Location Number” which shows that it is clearly a 2008 form. This is fraud and it’s a felony and Schlussel’s allegations are backed up by Stephen Coffman, a former high-ranking Federal agent. Moreover, the document shows a September 4th, 1980 date and the location of the transaction as Hawaii, but at that time Obama was thousands of miles away attending Occidental College in Los Angeles.

The real reason why Obama probably did not submit this form as a teenager is that he assumed his Kenyan or Indonesian citizenship exempted him from this requirement. But clearly, as he grew older and entered politics, he saw that any documents revealing a foreign birth – Selective Service registration, birth certificate, school applications, etc – would be problematic if he ran for the presidency. Thus, it is not a coincidence that every document which contains information about his birth or citizenship is either missing, sealed, or has been altered.

Indeed, everywhere one looks into Obama’s background, we find sealed records, scrubbed websites, altered documents, deception and unanswered questions. Can anyone imagine for a second if John McCain or George Bush had blocked access to his school, medical, and birth records? It would have been headlines in their case,  but as with everything else concerning Obama, the media has given him a pass on this.

Of all these marvels, the latest mystery and probably most perplexing is that of Obama’s social security number. It appears that Obama has multiple identities in term of possessing numerous social security numbers. Orly Taitz, an attorney who has filed numerous suits against Obama regarding his eligibility to serve as president, appears to have been the first to discover this. In her suit, representing a number of military officers who are refusing to serve under an ineligible commander in chief, she hired private investigator Neil Sankey to conduct research on Obama’s prior addresses and Social Society numbers. Using Intelius, Lexis Nexis, Choice Point and other public records, Sankey found around 25 Social Security numbers connected with Obama’s name.

However, it may not be as many as 25, since Sankey also searched using closely related names such as: “Barak Obama,” “Batock Obama,” “Barok Obama,” and “Barrack Obama.” There may very well be some Kenyans living in America with the same last name and a similar first name. In any case, I will exclude these records for the purpose of this research and focus only on names spelled exactly like his name. Moreover, we can verify many of the Social Security numbers as valid since they’re connected to addresses at which we know Obama resided. Needless to say, there are also a slew of address and social security numbers connected to addresses in states that Obama has no known connection to.

In Obama’s home state, Illinois, Sankey tracked down 16 different addresses for a Barack Obama or a Barack H. Obama, of which all are addresses he was known to have lived at. Two Social Security numbers appear for these addresses, one beginning with 042 and one starting 364.

In California, where Obama attended Occidental College, there are six addresses listed for him, all within easy driving distance of the college. However, there are three Social Security numbers connected to these addresses, 537 and two others, each beginning with 999.

There are no addresses listed in New York where he attended Columbia University, but there is one listed for him in nearby Jackson, NJ, with a Social Security number beginning with 485.

713 Hart Senate Office Building

713 Hart Senate Office Building

In Massachusetts – where Obama attended Harvard Law School – we find three addresses, all using the 042 Social Security number. After Obama was elected to the United States Senate in 2005, he moved into an apartment at 300 Massachusetts Ave NW; the Social Security number attached to that address is the 042 one. Yet, three years later, Obama used a different Social Security number for an address listed as: 713 Hart Senate Office Building. This was the address of his United States Senate office. This Social Security number began with 282 and was verified by the government in 2008.

This mystery grows even stranger as other addresses and Social Security numbers for Barack Obama appear in a dozen other states not known to be connected to him. Again, I am excluding those records names not spelled exactly like his name.

  • Tennessee, one address with a Social Security number beginning with 427
  • Colorado, one address, with a Social Security number beginning with 456.
  • Utah, two addresses, with two Social Security numbers beginning with 901 and 799.
  • Missouri has one address and one Social Security number beginning with 999.
  • Florida has two addresses listed for his him, three if you count one listed as “Barry Obama.” One is connected to a Social Security number beginning with 762.
  • In Georgia there are three addresses listed for him, all with different Social Security numbers: 579, 420, and 423.
  • In Texas there are four different addresses listed for him, one is connected to Social Security number 675.
  • There are two addresses listed for Barack Obama in Oregon and one address listed for him in  the states of Wisconsin, Michigan, South Carolina, and Pennsylvania.

All told, there are 49 addresses and 16 different Social Security numbers listed for a person whose name is spelled “Barack Obama.” In some cases, the middle initial “H” is listed. If you were to expand the search to include closely related names such as: “Barac,” “Barak,” and “Barrack” Obama, you would find more than a dozen additional addresses and Social Security numbers.

Finally, the one Social Security number Obama most frequently used, the one beginning with 042, is a number issued in Connecticut sometime during 1976-1977, yet there is no record of Obama ever living or working in Connecticut. Indeed, during this time period Obama would have been 15-16 years old and living in Hawaii at the time.

Ann, Stanley and Madelyn Dunham

Ann, Stanley and Madelyn Dunham

Nevertheless, all this mystery surrounding Obama appears to be a generational thing. Researchers have discovered nearly a dozen aliases, at least two different Social Security numbers, and upwards of over 99 separate addresses for Ann Dunham, his mother. We do know she worked for the ultra liberal Ford Foundation but we also know she may have earned some income from pornographic poses, as evidenced by photos recently discovered by some researchers—how embarrassing. The only thing researchers are able to find out about Obama’s mother is the fact she made porn. I’m sure that’s a first for presidential mothers.

But we also know that Obama’s mother and grandparents associated with Communist Party leaders such as Frank Marshall Davis, a man who, according to Obama’s book, Dreams from my Father, was his main mentor during much of his Hawaiian boyhood (although Obama tried to disguise his identity in his book). During the Cold War, Davis was named by congressional investigators as a key member of a secretive pro-Soviet networked that existed in Hawaii at that time.

Communist Party leader, Frank Marshall Davis

The lack of documents regarding Obama also extends to his mother and to his grandparents. Indeed, researchers have been unable to find marriage licenses for his mother’s two marriages, assuming she was ever legally married. Ditto goes for the marriage license for Ann’s parents. They cannot find birth certificates for her, her parents, or for even for her grandparents. Even more so, despite Obama’s boast of his grandfather’s military service, there’s no record of that either. For reasons no one knows, much of Obama’s life, his mother’s life and his grandparent’s life has been erased from the records as if they never existed.

But why would someone obtain so many Social Security numbers? According to investigators, those who create additional Social Society numbers are typically engaged in criminal activities such as Social Security fraud, tax fraud, real estate fraud, campaign contributions fraud, voter fraud and so on. While the private investigator who compiled this list says multiple social security numbers does not automatically prove there’s criminal activity involved, he states that “having said that, I have personally experienced many, many cases where such information has led to subsequent exposure of fraud, deception, money laundering and other crimes.“What is interesting to note is that Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, was a volunteer at the Oahu Circuit Court probate department and had access to the Social Security numbers of deceased people.

2013 Washington malefactors also include Clinton, Holder, Boehner

author-image

President Obama leads the “Top Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politiciansfor 2013, named by the Washington watchdog Judicial Watch.

This year the “honor” is for acting “as a one-man Congress, rewriting entire sections of federal law on his own.”

Judicial Watch annually releases a list of the top politicians who misbehave while purportedly representing taxpayers in Washington. The 2013 “honors” go to, in alphabetical order, House Speaker John Boehner, CIA Director John Brennan, Sen. Saxby Chambliss, Hillary Clinton, Attorney General Eric Holder, former IRS commissioner Steve T. Miller and former IRS official Lois Lerner, ex-DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, Obama, Sen. Harry Reid and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

Several are perennial selections, including Obama, who has been on the list for seven years already, and Holder.

Obama, the organization contends, “is a master at catch-me-if-you can, corrupt politics.”

“Not only is his administration secretive and dishonest; its callous disregard for the rule of law undermines our constitutional republic,” the report said.

“Perhaps Obama’s most outrageous actions over the past year were his continual lies about the ability of Americans to keep their own health insurance under Obamacare. According the Free Beacon, Obama misled the American people a total of 36 times between 2008 and 2013 with his promise, ‘If you like your health insurance, you can keep it.’ And according to NBC News, Obama knew, even as he repeated his lie, that ‘more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.’

“According to the Galen Institute, Obama has now unilaterally rewritten the Obamacare law as passed by Congress 14 times by executive fiat, with the majority of those changes coming in 2013. Those changes include such major overhauls as the congressional opt-out, eviscerating the individual mandate, and delaying the employer mandate. The latest Obama fix came on December 20, when he suddenly moved to allow hundreds of thousands of people who have lost their insurance due to Obamacare to sign up for bare-bone ‘catastrophic’ plans,” it said.

The list also said that throughout 2013, the Obama family “continued to use the White House as its own personal travel bureau and the taxpayers as their personal expense account.”

While Obama, the report said, “quickly disavowed any knowledge of the IRS assault on tea party and other conservative groups leading up to the 2012 presidential election, the fact is that it was the president himself who fingered the groups for what might be called ‘special handling.’”

Obama had blasted conservative groups with attacks such as “We don’t know who’s behind these ads and we don’t know who’s paying for them,”  “You don’t know if it’s a foreign controlled corporation” and “The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide.”

Boehner

Judicial Watch charged that House Speaker John Boehner has become a master at what Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer calls the “Tollbooth Strategy.”

That’s when donations are accepted to move legislation down the road toward law, the report explained.

Among the actions cited were the Wireless Tax Fairness Act, which was brought up for a vote the day after Boehner’s campaign collected “33 checks from wireless industry executives, totaling almost $40,000.”

Brennan

Judicial Watch cites Brennan’s decision to reveal the extent of U.S. penetration into al-Qaida, which  forced a successful spy operation to be shut down. He also apparently orchestrated the administration’s attempt to influence the storyline of the movie “Zero Dark Thirty.”

Chambliss

The Georgia Republican was cited because the New York Times reported his abuses of loopholes through which campaign cash was converted into a lavish lifestyle.

The expenses included $10,000 on golf at Pebble Beach, nearly $27,000 at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and $107,752 at the exclusive Breakers resort in Palm Beach, Fla., the report said.

Clinton

Judicial Watch said Hillary Clinton’s downfall was Benghazi.

“On Jan. 23, 2013, outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified to congressional committees regarding the terrorist attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, which led to the murder of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American citizens. At times evasive, at other times defensive and aggressive, Clinton delivered her version of events in the days before and after the murders in Benghazi. And, in the end, the Secretary of State pretended to take ‘responsibility,’ but gave a predictable response regarding who is to blame: ‘…the level of responsibility for the failures…was set at the Assistant Secretary of State level and below,’ Clinton said, referring to an investigation of the incident. In other words, this was not my fault,” Judicial Watch reported.

Holder

He’s a “regular” on the list, Judicial Watch said.

“In May 2013, Holder may well have committed perjury when he was involved in a back-and-forth with Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., about whether the Department of Justice (DOJ) could prosecute reporters under the Espionage Act for publishing classified material. In response to Johnson’s interrogatories Holder made the following statement: “In regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material – this is not something I’ve ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy.”

However, Holder previously had approved a search warrant for the email account and phone records of Fox News reporter James Rosen, Judicial Watch said.

Miller and Lerner

The trouble for Miller and Lerner was that the IRS admitted to targeting anti-Obama tea party organizations and other conservatives during the 2012 election. The IRS “purposely stonewalled the approval of nonprofit applications from ‘tea party’ and other conservative groups that were seeking tax exempt status.”

“According to a report by the agency’s inspector general released in May 2013, for more than 18 months beginning in early 2010: ‘The IRS used inappropriate criteria that identified for review tea party and other organizations applying for tax-exempt status based upon their names or policy positions instead of indications of potential political campaign intervention.’”

Lerner headed the department that was involved.

Napolitano

Judicial Watch explained she “played a major role in doing an end-run around existing immigration law by helping President Obama implement his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) directive in lieu of DREAM Act passage.”

Sebelius

“The Obama administration’s own lawyers determined Sebelius could be fired for violating federal law when reports surfaced that she had campaigned for Obama while acting in her official capacity as an executive branch official during the last presidential campaign. This made Kathleen Sebelius the first member ever of a president’s cabinet to be found guilty of violating the Hatch Act,” Judicial Watch said, among other issues.

Dishonorable mentions went to former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, outgoing Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and incoming Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, former Rep. Rick Renzi, R-Ariz., and National Security Adviser Susan Rice.

Last year’s list included Obama, GOP Rep. Vern Buchanan, Holder, Clinton, Rice, Steven Chu, Illinois Democrat Jesse Jackson Jr., New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez, Reid, Florida Republican David Rivera and Sebelius.

The entire 2011 list: Rep. Spencer Bachus, R-Ala.; former Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev.; Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla.; Holder; Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill.; Obama; Rep. Laura Richardson, D-Calif.; Rep. David Rivera, R-Fla.; Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.; and Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska.

Cover of "Change We Can Believe In: Barac...

Gold Medalist Barack Obama in 2013

Hands down the number one lie of 2013 has to be Barack Obama’s promise that Americans can keep their healthcare plans if they like them. It was a promise made years prior to the implementation of the Affordable Healthcare Act, but it slid into home plate as the biggest lie of the year just in time for the New Year.

The full complement of Obama lies has reached a peak this year 2013 and confidence in the President is now at an all-time low. For those of us who never believed him from the start there are no new surprises.

Black is Not a Political Party – This is no Little White Lie

Some of the biggest lies and worst hypocrisy didn’t originate this year, but like Obama’s lies they may have peaked out and their dubious refinements have effervesced to the surface in 2013.

Hypocrisy has made history in 2013, in what might be called the biggest setback to the civil rights movement in over half a century. Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream has taken its biggest hit, not from white racists who want to see more segregation, but from blacks who segregated themselves in a full rally for Barack Obama regardless of his broken promises, attacks on tradition, religion and morality and a whole lot of false promise about a nanny state utopia for the poor.

The best way to describe the collective lie being accepted and promulgated by the black community is to understand that since the candidacy of Barack Obama was announced Blacks have ceased to be a people with two party affiliations. With rare exceptions there are no more democrats or republicans among the blacks – there are only Obama followers.

Over a half century of civil rights advances has been stymied by the candidacy of one black man. White people have spent the last five decades laboring against the idea that skin color means much of anything. Integrity, character, contribution, talent, service and servant hood were all that mattered until 2008. What a shock to discover that most of our black citizens never saw it that way after all!

Educators and Academics Still Trying to Sell Us the Big Bang

If you don’t believe in God, you will have to do with the big bang theory to explain the origin of all things. Sadly, 2013 saw no new proof of the big bang theory, but only glitches and setbacks. The preponderance of big bang being taught in our schools along with atheist’s mis-use of “separation” doctrines has all but destroyed the careers and livelihoods of creationists. The theory of evolution has spawned the theory of educational discrimination against anyone who doesn’t buy the idea that everything came from nothing.

In 2013 the big bang looks more like a big lie when considering we have no more of the amazing missing links to bolster the idea of inter-species evolution than before, and the second law of thermodynamics has all but been dismissed even though it cries against the big bang expostulation.

In less scientific language, what right has the big bang crowd to dismiss those who believe in a young earth, created in only seven days, when they believe in the much larger universe being created in only a few seconds. Duh!

In ten years of reading and writing on the subject of creationism versus the idea that some vast sea of gasses came together to form the universe, not one scientist, or academic has even tried to explain where those gases originated in the absence of a creator.

Even in 2013 the only answer for the big bang theorists is that their god – must be a real gas.

The big bang and the theory of evolution are the norm of the day, but reason and logic along with what attempts to look like intelligence are making it ever more obvious that while science has an ample supply of confidence and curiosity, it has no mechanism for containment.

Science is contained or limited by its own definition. Empiricism is the gaining of knowledge by means of repeatable and observable phenomena. Can science repeat the big bang? Was anyone there to observe it? Is the big bang scientific – at all?

In 2013 it may be that by comparison to the old scientific mistake of bloodletting to relieve illness; the big bang and sister evolutionary theory are merely brain letting, fueled by prior philosophic postulation. Big bang qualifies for a big lie award this year as it has for many years to date, not because it can’t be ruled out, but because it has given cause to the indoctrinated to not allow anything else to be ruled in.

That’s not science, that’s not thinking and above all that’s not a truth you can stand on in 2013. It is indoctrination created by wishful thinking. Can you hear the distant refrain of ‘When you wish upon a star?’

Change We Can Believe In– Morphs from a slogan to a lie in 2013

I would be the last person to believe that I might try to mitigate for Barack Obama. After considering what makes our president tick a thousand ways to Sunday, I have theorized that after all he may the victim of his own political theories.

Many have tried to explain Obama doctrine as the result of his attraction to Alinskyism, communism or socialism. In fact; Barack Obama is simply a ‘believer.’ He believes in what he espouses and has no doubt he is right. He may be dead wrong about what he believes, but he is only standing on what he thinks is perfectly right. Sadly it must be noted that many of the worst tyrants in history also believed they were right.

In 2013 pragmatism and practicality finally met with, or crashed against the extravagant promises and wishful thinking of a full blown believer. Does that make him wrong? Indeed it does and it makes the promise of a change we can believe in a complete lie.

The Universality of the Homosexual Message Becomes the Other Biggest Lie of 2013

2013’s greatest collision was when GLAAD and LGBT met Duck Dynasty, but let’s not get pompous because that’s largely an American phenomenon.

The truth is the gay message is failing elsewhere in the world as well. Dozens of Muslim countries will not tolerate the gay lifestyle and have severe penalties in place for dealing with it. Russia, Uganda and now India have re-instituted laws that curtail the spread of the gay agenda.

The idea that it is only those who adhere to the bibles message about homosexuality that are resisting the gays is simply – not true.

I have warned for over 40 years that if you are preaching a gospel message that cannot be universally accepted in every country in the world, it probably is not the true gospel.

The prosperity gospel so loved in America falls like a lead filled dirigible in third world countries where a piece of bread is a premium. Over emphasis on the rapture doctrine also sinks like the Titanic in nations where Christians are being slaughtered by Muslims.

The message of God’s saving grace in its purest and most fundamental form is still accepted completely all over the world, even in these last days.

The gay message is failing for the same reasons twisted versions of the gospel fail. It is not universally acceptable. It presents moral issues, wars against both nature and tradition and in some countries that are struggling with upheavals and economic problems it is an outright nuisance.
It may be time for the LGBT to realize that first amendment rights are there so minorities will not be stifled, but they do not exist as a weapon to club the majority into submission to every nascent pop culture compunction of the day.

A Year of Lies Balanced by a Single Truth

Lots of bad news and barely comprehensible changes have come down the pike in 2013, but we still hope for some good to be announced that might balance or stabilize our retrospective of the year.

In our world, truth may have remained forever relative and open to endless debate. Pontius Pilate’s famous question, “what is truth,” might still be unanswered to this day except that God decided to incarnate or place the truth into one single man for all eternity.

The worst of 2013 with all its lies and social upheaval have done nothing to lessen the radiance that the incarnation of truth has provided. It is a candle in the dark and a city on the hill. In this year of the lie, here is the truth that can balance it all, including your life.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14: 6)

Arpaio investigator: ‘This is beyond the pale of anything you can imagine’


author-image

The lead investigator in Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse investigation of President Obama’s birth certificate says the case has taken a startling turn, and sheriff’s investigators now are assisting the Cold Case volunteers.

“When this information is finally exposed to the public, it will be universe-shattering,” Mike Zullo told WND. “This is beyond the pale of anything you can imagine.”

Zullo explained that because it’s an active investigation that could produce criminal charges, he’s unable to reveal details at the moment.

But the allegations, he said, which go far beyond a fraudulent birth certificate, could be public as early as March.

The issue arose once again because of the death Wednesday in Hawaii of state Health Department chief Loretta Fuddy in a plane crash. She was the official who waived state prohibitions and provided to the White House a copy of a document that Obama presented to the public as his birth certificate.

It’s the document that Arpaio’s investigators have concluded is fraudulent.

Amid conspiracy theories circulating the Internet, Zullo told WND today that Fuddy’s death – she was the only fatality among nine people aboard a small airplane that crashed off the coast of Molokai – appears to be a tragic accident, not foul play.

He said his investigation does not depend on any information from Fuddy.

In an interview today with author and talk-radio host Carl Gallups of PPSimmons News and Ministry Network and the author of “The Magic Man in the Sky,” and
the new
“The Rabbi who Found Messiah,” Zullo said his investigation of the Obama fraud case “does not hinge on Ms. Fuddy.”

“While her death certainly is a tragedy, it in no way hampers our investigation in this matter,” he said.  “If people truly believe that her untimely demise was somehow related to an attempt to silence her for ‘what she may or may not know,’ then there are several more people in Hawaii who should be very, very concerned.

“Again, I want to emphasize,” Zullo said, ‘Sheriff Arpaio and I do not, at this time, believe her death was connected to any nefarious circumstances.”

The birth certificate dispute dates back to before the 2008 election. Critics, including Hillary Clinton, raised the issue about Obama’s status as a “natural-born citizen.” Not defined in the Constitution, it probably was thought at the time of the writing of the Constitution to be someone born of two citizen parents.

Obama fails that test because his father was a Kenyan student visiting the U.S.

Arpaio assigned his Cold Case Posse to look into the issue before the 2012 election, when constituents approached him and asked him to check whether Obama would be an ineligible candidate on the presidential election ballot.

In a recent radio interview with Gallups, Zullo affirmed the investigation had been expanded to the county sheriff’s office and was “moving in a direction that was not anticipated by us.”

“The whole [issue] is more nefarious than you can imagine,” Zullo said, crediting Arpaio for ordering the investigation and sticking with it.

“He knows in his gut that something is wrong,” Zullo said.

Dozens of lawsuits have been filed without success. One case is pending before the Alabama Supreme Court for which Zullo provided evidence.

Still a live issue

Zullo has testified that the White House computer image of Obama’s birth certificate contains anomalies that are unexplainable unless the document had been fabricated piecemeal by human intervention, rather than being copied from a genuine paper document.

“Mr. Obama has in fact not offered any verifiable authoritative document of any legal significance or possessing any evidentiary value as to the origins of his purported birth narrative or location of the birth event,” he explained. “One of our most serious concerns is that the White House document appears to have been fabricated piecemeal on a computer, constructed by drawing together digitized data from several unknown sources.”

Zullo also has noted that the governor of Hawaii was unable to produce an original birth document for Obama, and it should have been easy to find.

See some of Zullo’s evidence:

More recently, Grace Vuoto of the World Tribune reported that among the experts challenging the birth certificate is certified document analyst Reed Hayes, who has served as an expert for Perkins Coie, the law firm that has been defending Obama in eligibility cases.

“We have obtained an affidavit from a certified document analyzer, Reed Hayes, that states the document is a 100 percent forgery, no doubt about it,” Zullo told the World Tribune.

“Mr. Obama’s operatives cannot discredit [Hayes],” the investigator told the news outlet. “Mr. Hayes has been used as the firm’s reliable expert. The very firm the president is using to defend him on the birth certificate case has used Mr. Hayes in their cases.”

The Tribune reported Hayes agreed to take a look at the documentation and called almost immediately.

“There is something wrong with this,” Hayes said.

Hayes produced a 40-page report in which he says “based on my observations and findings, it is clear that the Certificate of Live Birth I examined is not a scan of an original paper birth certificate, but a digitally manufactured document created by utilizing material from various sources.”

“In over 20 years of examining documentation of various types, I have never seen a document that is so seriously questionable in so many respects. In my opinion, the birth certificate is entirely fabricated,” he says in the report.

Investigator Douglas J. Hagmann of the Northeast Intelligence Network reported this monththat in October an affidavit was filed in a court case, under seal, that purportedly identifies the creator of the Obama birth certificate.

He said Douglas Vogt, an author and the owner and operator of a scanning business who also has an accounting background, invested over two years in an investigation of the authenticity of document.

Vogt, along with veteran typesetter Paul Ivey, conducted “exhaustive research of the document provided to the White House Press Corps on April 27, 2011 – not the online PDF, a critical distinction that must be understood,” Hagmann said.

“Using their combined experience of 80 years in this realm, they conducted extensive examinations of the ‘copy’ that was used as the basis for the PDF document. They acquired the same type of equipment that was used back in the late 1950s and early 1960s in an attempt to recreate the document presented as an ‘authenticated copy’ proving the legitimacy of Barack Obama. Instead, they found 20 points of forgery on that document and detail each point of forgery in the affidavit,” wrote Hagmann.

“Even more interesting, Mr. Vogt claims to have identified the ‘signature’ of the perpetrator, or the woman who created the forged document, hidden within the document itself. Her identity, in addition to the identity of other conspirators and their precise methods are contained in a sealed document supplementing the public affidavit.”

Grounds for impeachment

Last month, WND columnist Christopher Monckton wrotethat the controversy he calls “Hawaiigate” should be “the central ground of impeachment.”

“First, the dishonesty is shameless and in your face. Mr Obama’s advisers, once they realized the ‘birth certificate’ was as bogus as a $3 bill, knew that if they simply went on pretending that $3 bills are legal tender the hard-left-dominated news media would carefully and continuously look the other way, pausing occasionally to sneer at anyone who pointed out that, in this constitutionally crucial respect, the ‘president’ has no clothes,” Monckton wrote.

“Secondly, not one of the numerous agencies of state, as well as federal government, whose duty was and is to investigate the Mickey-Mouse ‘birth certificate’ has bothered even to respond to the thousands of requests for investigation put forward by U.S. citizens.

He said that in Hawaii last year, he watched “as a senior former state senator called the police and, when they came, handed over to them compelling evidence that the ‘birth certificate’ had been forged.”

“The police, correctly, passed the file to the state’s attorney general, a ‘Democrat,’ who did nothing about it,” he said.

“In Washington, D.C., I watched as a concerned citizen from Texas telephoned the FBI and reported the ‘birth certificate’ as being a forgery. They said they would send two agents to see him within the hour. No one came.”

‘You tell me about eligibility’

One of the highest profile skeptics has been billionaire Donald Trump.

Trump said he can’t be certain that Obama is eligible to be president, and he pointedly noted that a reporter who was poking fun at the issue admitted he can’t either.

Trump repeatedly has insisted Obama has not documented his eligibility. At one point, he offered $5 million to the charity or charities of Obama’s choice if he would release his passport records and authorize the colleges he attended to release his applications and other records.

Trump argues that those documents would show whether or not Obama ever accepted scholarship or other aid as a foreign student, which could preclude him from being a “natural-born citizen.”

Trump’s conversation with ABC’s Jonathan Karl started with Karl noting that Trump took on the “not serious” issue of eligibility.

“Why does that make me not serious?” Trump demanded. “I think that resonated with a lot of people.”

Karl replied: “You don’t still question he was born in the United States, do you?”

“I have no idea,” Trump said. “I don’t know. Was there a birth certificate? You tell me. You know some people say that was not his birth certificate. I’m saying I don’t know. Nobody knows, and you don’t know either. Jonathan you’re a smart guy, and you don’t know.”

When Karl admitted he was “pretty sure,” Trump jumped on the statement.

“You just said you’re pretty sure … you have to be 100 percent sure,” he said. “Jonathan, you said you’re pretty convinced, so let’s just see what happens over time.”

Among the many records the Obama camp has refused to release are the marriage license of his father (Barack Sr.) and mother (Stanley Ann Dunham), name change records (Barry Soetero to Barack Hussein Obama), adoption records, records of his and his mother’s repatriation as U.S. citizens from Indonesia, baptism records, Noelani Elementary School (Hawaii) records, Punahou School financial aid or school records, Occidental College financial aid records, Harvard Law School records, Columbia senior thesis, Columbia College records, record with Illinois State Bar Association, files from his terms as an Illinois state senator, his law client list, medical records and passport records.

Monckton, citing Zullo’s sworn affidavit in a court case, published a sworn mathematical analysis demonstrating the near-zero probability that the White House “birth certificate” is genuine.

A group of House Republicans are making a move to finally impeach Attorney General Eric Holder and remove him from office.

Eric Holder is behind Fast and Furious, has targeted journalists who challenged Obama, and has constantly trampled on the US Constitution. He should be immediately impeached.

Whether this process takes off still depends on getting more Republicans on board, grassroots activism, and getting past the party establishment. This needs all the public support it can get — please spread the word.

 

The National Review Online has reported:

A group of Republican congressmen are taking the first steps to impeach a Cabinet secretary for only the second time in American history with the target set on Attorney General Eric Holder.

Freshman congressman Ted Yoho of Florida told a local newspaper that he is hopeful that he and a handful of other lawmakers will meet with John Boehner to discuss their plans. “This will go to the speaker and the speaker will decide if it comes up or not,” Yoho said. According to his spokesperson, Yoho is not the member who is drafting the impeachment resolution.

Holder has provoked the ire of Capitol Hill Republicans over the years for his ties to a number of controversies. Last year, the House voted to hold the attorney general in contempt for his lack of cooperation in the Fast and Furious investigation. He has also faced questions from lawmakers for the Department of Justice’s seizing of phone records and e-mails from Associated Press and Fox News reporters.

Politico reported:

“It’s to get him out of office — impeachment,” Yoho said, according to the Gainesville Sun, adding “it will probably be when we get back in [Washington]. It will be before the end of the year. This will go to the speaker and the speaker will decide if it comes up or not.”

Yoho cited frustration over the botched “Fast and Furious” program – in which federal agents allowed guns to “walk” to Mexican drug cartels as part of an investigation – as one of the main motivations for the impeachment push. That sting operation failed, and weapons tied to the Fast and Furious program were found at the shooting scene when a Border Patrol agent was killed in Dec. 2010.

Omar Raschid, a Yoho spokesman, said Yoho was not actually drafting the impeachment resolution against Holder but declined to say which lawmaker was doing so.

Boehner’s officer declined to comment on the potential Holder impeachment resolution. A Justice Department spokesman also would not comment.

The House approved both civil and criminal contempt resolutions against Holder in June 2012 over his failure to cooperate with congressional subpoenas during the Fast and Furious probe. The Justice Department – as has been done in previous administrations – would not move forward on any criminal charges against Holder. DOJ and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have been locked in a lengthy legal battle as part of the civil contempt fight since that time.

The good news is that Republicans are finally starting to resist the Obama administration. The bad news is that this goes nowhere without grassroots support, and even then it has to get past John Boehner.

We’ve constantly said that John Boehner has to go, and this is a good example of why that’s still the case. Boehner is in a position where he can pretend to fight Obama most of the time — but defend him whenever it actually counts.

Come 2014, all ammunition sold to civilian gun-owners in America will have to be imported, a result of President Obama’s crackdown on sulfur dioxide and lead emissions and accompanying harsh Environmental Protection Agency regulations, said former Florida congressman, Lt. Col. Allen West.

And for defenders of the Second Amendment, that means higher ammo prices are likely on the way — a situation Mr. Allen writes on his blog, AllenBWest.com, is akin to a federal power-grab on guns, albeit through the backdoor.

He said the situation stemmed from the shutdown of The Doe Run Lead Smelter in Missouri, a business that’s been around since 1892 but due to close at the end of this month. Mr. West said it’s due to new air standards placed on the company that would have cost $100 million to achieve.

“[This] will surely increase the price and possibly come under government control,” Mr. West warned, Breitbart.com reported. “It seems this is fully in concert with the U.S. Military and Homeland Defense recent purchase of large quantities of ammunition.”

He said the “chilling effect” is that while the closure of the smelt plant doesn’t take guns out of the hands of Americans, it does put in jeopardy ammunition supplies.

“You can own all the guns you want, but if you can’t get ammo, you are out of luck,” Mr. West wrote, on his blog. “Remember when President Obama promised his minions that he was working on gun control behind the scenes? Welcome to it. The result is that all domestically mined ore will have to be shipped overseas, refined and then shipped back to the U.S.”

Mr. West warned: “Not only will ammo be even harder to come by, the demand and the process of supply will cause the price to skyrocket even more. And ponder this, there is an excellent chance that Obama will rig the market to where all ammo has to be purchased from the government, instituting an ammo registration. … So America, back door gun control is moving forward … [and] our Second Amendment rights are undergoing an assault by clandestine infiltration.”

The gun grabbers are always using any means they can to hurt the American hunters and home defense folks!

Sources close to the issue say Holder is staying at the Justice Department into 2014.

GOP Rep. Ted Yoho says a group of House Republicans wants to impeach Attorney General Eric Holder — an action not taken by the chamber in nearly 140 years.

Yoho, a Florida freshman who never held elected office before winning his seat in Nov. 2012, told the Gainesville Sun that the group wants to meet with Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to discuss removing Holder from office.

“It’s to get him out of office — impeachment,” Yoho said, according to the Gainesville Sun, adding “it will probably be when we get back in [Washington]. It will be before the end of the year. This will go to the speaker and the speaker will decide if it comes up or not.”

Yoho cited frustration over the botched “Fast and Furious” program – in which federal agents allowed guns to “walk” to Mexican drug cartels as part of an investigation – as one of the main motivations for the impeachment push. That sting operation failed, and weapons tied to the Fast and Furious program were found at the shooting scene when a Border Patrol agent was killed in Dec. 2010.

Omar Raschid, a Yoho spokesman, said Yoho was not actually drafting the impeachment resolution against Holder but declined to say which lawmaker was doing so.

Boehner’s officer declined to comment on the potential Holder impeachment resolution. A Justice Department spokesman also would not comment.

The House approved both civil and criminal contempt resolutions against Holder in June 2012 over his failure to cooperate with congressional subpoenas during the Fast and Furious probe. The Justice Department – as has been done in previous administrations – would not move forward on any criminal charges against Holder. DOJ and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have been locked in a lengthy legal battle as part of the civil contempt fight since that time.

Holder had been rumored to be leaving office after President Barack Obama won reelection to a second term last year, but so far, he is staying put. Sources close to the issue say Holder is staying at the Justice Department into 2014.

Under Article II of the Constitution, the House has the authority to begin impeachment proceedings against the president, vice president, Cabinet members and federal judges over accusations of treason, bribery, ‘or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.” The Senate then conducts a “trial” with a two-thirds majority needed for conviction.

Only one Cabinet official has undergone impeachment proceedings – Secretary of War William Belknap.

In March 1876, the House impeached Belknap over corruption allegations, despite the fact that the he resigned minutes before the House vote. The Senate held a trial for Belknap, acquitting him on all five charges. Belknap was never prosecuted over the allegations.

BIG LIST of racial attacks, assaults and threats

Published: 09/19/2012 at 7:56 PM

author-image 

You can Thank obama for this and his other race baiting pimps! They have divided this nation way back to the 50’s

ViolenceMap

America is the midst of an epidemic of racial mob violence and the media refuses to report it.

In my book, “White Girl Bleed a Lot,” I documented hundreds of examples of black mob violence in more than 70 cities big and small throughout the country.

Many of the episodes are on YouTube. I also documented how the media and public officials ignore, condone, excuse and even lie about this wave of lawlessness.

Despite a growing mountain of evidence, some still deny this problem exists. (Curiously, the same people who deny the problem are always the first to explain it away.)

So here are the links to racial mob violence throughout the country, following the organization of the chapters in my book: Some by city, some by theme, i.e. racial violence against Asians, “gays,” Jews, women and others.

I followed up many of the links with phone calls or emails to confirm the racial nature of the attacks and lawlessness.

Many of the individual links are definitive. Treat the others as clues that are part of an investigative package that help us determine the racial quality of the mayhem. And how public officials and media react to it.

Editor’s note: Some of these links will have images and language that is objectionable:

This video was posted by Glenn Beck over 4 months ago. Boy was he right to sound the alarm!

NSA’s Utah Data Facility

When former Booz Allen employee Edward Snowden blew the whistle on NSA operations just remember that he warned that all that was missing for “turnkey tyranny” to ensue would be a change of policy. That of course would be public policy, this government works under the veil of secrecy and this has been ongoing for quite awhile while Americans tuned out of  working to be informed and tuned into Dancing With the Stars or some other televised crapfest. The real policies were birthed from the still smoldering ruins of WW II with the creation of the National Security State and the CIA (formerly OSS) and NSA (formerly Armed Forces Security Agency). Riding high after whipping up on the Germans and Japanese the powers that be were out to make damned sure that unlike the Third Reich the American Empire would last for a thousand years and with the right kind of luck for eternity.  Largely comprised of the Wall Street elite such as Allen Dulles, Frank Wisner and others the CIA would along with the military component NSA make the planet safe for big American money no matter what the consequences were. The methods did not matter and morality was never a consideration as it was all done under the pretense of fighting communism, a reliable bogeyman until the USSR collapsed. Whether it engaged in propaganda campaigns, funding foreign right-wing groups and death squads, assassinating leaders who refused to come to terms with the capitalist mafia, overthrowing regimes to install U.S. friendly despots who reveled in murdering their own people and to wage war, a very lucrative business indeed.

The Massive NSA Facility Under Construction in Utah

Utah Data Facility

The metastasizing of the National Security State and it’s components throughout American society would be a gradual process, and again, the ability to conduct anti-Constitutional spying on its own citizens was critical for any of it to work. Challenges had to be eliminated, be it the infiltration of domestic leftist groups, blackmailing of aspiring politicians and even termination with extreme prejudice were just tools in the box, all dependent on the situation at the time. The advent of computer technology, especially over the past quarter century has rapidly accelerated the process. Former NSA whistleblower Russell Tice recently gave an interview where he confirmed that reporters, lawyers, judges and aspiring politicians were spied on by the agency  including then Senator Barack Obama. This revelation like all other inconveniences to the establishment never made it into big media (they are too busy sniffing the royal baby turd as of late) instead being relegated to internet talk shows and alternative media sites. Now the pocket media can just invoke the magical talisman of “conspiracy theorists” and it all goes away. Move along, nothing to see here.

Years before Snowden’s exposure of NSA criminality, Tice came out during the Bush years and eventually revealed that journalists were being spied on. He did so most notably in an interview on the since cancelled MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann Another Bush era whistleblower named Thomas Tamm gave his account in an interview with Newsweek that exposed NSA activities, notably a program called Stellar Wind.  September 11, 2001 would prove to be fortuitous in that it provided justification not only for an eternal “War On Terror” but also ensured that the growth in surveillance, policing, military and propaganda funding would be unlimited and the oversight virtually nonexistent, further more it provided the impetus for the reconfiguration of America into the ominously sounding Homeland. Now communism, the Manichean Devil that justified all evils perpetrated by the United States government finally had an official replacement in terrorism. Not that the construction of the all knowing surveillance and police state ever took a break, it has been a progressive construction project. Before PRISM there was PROMIS, ECHELON,REX 84, COG (Continuity Of Government) and TIA (Total Information Awareness) and no public debate was ever held on any of this yet it fundamentally changes our entire society. You see the policy has always there but only as a component of the secret government that functions outside of the public sphere and transcends presidential terms, it never sleeps. The real horrors along with the final descent of this country into all out fascism will be when that which has been constructed in private becomes the official public policy of the United States of America. I suspect that we will see that in our lifetime and probably sooner rather than later if it can’t be slowed.

Obama is just doing his part in providing the official cover for these programs by defending the indefensible and making damned certain that his Justice Department will go after any leakers with hammer and tong in order to make examples of them as is being done with Bradley Manning who is now undergoing a show trial, Ed Snowden when captured will face much worse than Manning and  sadly a good amount of the public will actually cheer on the persecutors as they destroy him physically, mentally and legally. Obama just keeps the machine running and provides a happy face until the rest of the work that really matters  is done. He is a presidential placebo and anyway, the real  details are way above his paygrade and he already has his golden parachute. Obama just like his loathed predecessor who have both been instrumental in building the coming tyrannical system are set for life now. He is a part of the club (the one that you are I are not in) and he recently signed off on lifetime Secret Service protection for himself and George W. Bush. Both of them will be sitting pretty when the shit finally does hit the fan which will likely be sooner rather than later and they will not have to bother with hearing the screams from inside their fortified homes, elitist vacation resorts and exclusive golf courses.

The enemy in the event there was ever any doubt is US.

Coming on the jack-booted heels of Friday’s rubber-stamping of the NSA’s extension to vacuum up all Verizon customer phone data, a bi-partisan effort yesterday beat back an attempt by insurgent Congressman Justin Amash. Joining Amash was longtime thorn in the side of the establishment John Conyers who tried in vain to reign in the civil liberties shredding surveillance colossus. Amash, a Tea Party Republican from Michigan has now offered proof that zany cultural populist nonsense when replaced with a serious defense of the very real invasion upon civil liberties will allow for stronger alliances with libertarians and progressives to slow the juggernaut while there is still a sliver of time left in which to do so. That sliver however gets tinier by the day and the forces arrayed against the destruction of the tattered remnants of a free society only get bolder and further consolidate their already dangerous positions of power. The Obama administration has proclaimed that it is above the law when it comes to spying on Americans and that their divine right of kings shalt not be challenged in court. In the same sort of twisted legalese that the Bush administration used to justify torture the Obama mob pushed back against the recent anti-spying lawsuit by the ACLU, claiming that it is in the “public interest” and cannot be challenged in a court of law.

The aforementioned pro-civil liberties amendment to a Defense Department appropriations bill (the country may be broke but there is always money for more war) went down in defeat 217-205 with such staunch and strident opponents of big government as John Boehner, Eric Cantor and Michelle Bachmann right along with the insipid and shrill Nancy Pelosi in defending the American Stasi. I suppose that there should something of merit in the amendment even being brought up, something that would have been inconceivable earlier in the post 9/11 era of fear, loathing and the extortion of taxpayers to fund their own enslavement. However, there have been some changes in attitude since Edward Snowden’s leaks but the defeat of the bill only provides more evidence that the system it rigged and that greed, war and oppression are the real things that bring Republicans and Democrats together. In a rare preemptive strike, El Presidente Obama even came out and had his flacks and shills issue a press release urging the defeat of the Amash amendment. NSA Commandant Keith Alexander also called for an emergency private briefing to rally the troops on the hill against the amendment lest his grossly perverted amassing of power take a hit. The whole rank process once again proved that in this rapidly decaying system there would be no challenge brooked nor the governed to be asked for their consent. The Alexander private decree is just like those secret courts that are the antithesis to any serious concept of democracy. Alexander is the strutting epitome of a military dictator salivating over the coming crackdown.

It is by now brutally evident to pretty much anyone who has bothered to read this far that we have a huge problem right now in America. It is a problem that dwarfs all others simply because the ability to collect and store information on all citizens is the primary lynchpin of a full-blown fascist state. But such a state also needs a propaganda spewing media machine, a desperate and poorly informed public, a paramilitary police and a myth of a constant outside threat that is used to justify the need for increasingly radical measures. The mass collection of the data is absolutely crucial in that it will be used when the ubiquitous outside threat is formally changed to an internal one.  That will be the time that the state will ruthlessly crush all perceived threats that may one day work to organize, inform, challenge and reverse the tide. As has been reported the NSA is now capable of conducting three hop data queries which as explained by Philip Bump at Atlantic Wire:

Think of it this way. Let’s say the government suspects you are a terrorist and it has access to your Facebook account. If you’re an American citizen, it can’t do that currently (with certain exceptions)—but for the sake of argument. So all of your friends, that’s one hop. Your friends’ friends, whether you know them or not—two hops. Your friends’ friends’ friends, whoever they happen to be, are that third hop. That’s a massive group of people that the NSA apparently considers fair game.

Theoretically anyone who is currently reading this website and about the entire country would be fair game for future pickup, interrogation, detention, torture and possibly even more extreme measures. This is not hyperbole either, as history has repeatedly proven, power always corrupts and in an end stage capitalist system such as the United States in the 21st century where the elite continue to gorge themselves at the expense of the vast majority and to do so with impunity and the full sanction and protection of the state it is inevitable that a backlash is coming. The backlash will not be tolerated under any circumstances as those who are elite will have no mercy or pause if their ill-gotten gains are ever threatened. When that does occur the pickup lists will be massive and generated instantaneously and that for profit prison system that rivals Stalin’s gulags will provide wonderful temporary housing for the enemies of the state. Programs have already been rolled out encouraging citizens to watch and rat each other out for any type of vaguely “suspicious” behavior so the conditioning is already in the minds of Americans. Decades of movies and television programs have cemented into the consciousness a reverence bordering of worship of the police while the police have subsequently become armed to the teeth and transformed into paramilitary forces. This began with advent of SWAT teams late in the last century and now even Dogpatch USA likely receives war zone grade equipment from the government for their local cops. Radley Balko, author of Rise of the Warrior Cop writes in his article A Decade After 9/11, Police Departments are increasingly Militarized that:

Over the last several decades Congress and administrations from both parties have continued to carve holes in that law, or at least find ways around it, mostly in the name of the drug war. And while the policies noted above established new ways to involve the military in domestic policing, the much more widespread and problematic trend has been to make our domestic police departments more like the military.

The main culprit was a 1994 law authorizing the Pentagon to donate surplus military equipment to local police departments. In the 17 years since, literally millions of pieces of equipment designed for use on a foreign battlefield have been handed over for use on U.S. streets, against U.S. citizens. Another law passed in 1997 further streamlined the process. As National Journal reported in 2000, in the first three years after the 1994 law alone, the Pentagon distributed 3,800 M-16s, 2,185 M-14s, 73 grenade launchers, and 112 armored personnel carriers to civilian police agencies across America. Domestic police agencies also got bayonets, tanks, helicopters and even airplanes.

AND

The September 11 attacks provided a new and seemingly urgent justification for further militarization of America’s police departments: the need to protect the country from terrorism.

Within months of the attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Center, the Office of National Drug Control Policy began laying the groundwork with a series of ads (featured most prominently during the 2002 Super Bowl) tying recreational drug use to support for terrorism. Terrorism became the new reason to arm American cops as if they were soldiers, but drug offenders would still be their primary targets.

In 2004, for example, law enforcement officials in the New York counties of Oswego and Cayuga defended their new SWAT teams as a necessary precaution in a post–September 11 world. “We’re in a new era, a new time,” here,” one sheriff told the Syracuse Post Standard. “The bad guys are a little different than they used to be, so we’re just trying to keep up with the needs for today and hope we never have to use it.” The same sheriff said later in the same article that he’d use his new SWAT team “for a lot of other purposes, too … just a multitude of other things.” In 2002, the seven police officers who serve the town of Jasper, Florida — which had all of 2,000 people and hadn’t had a murder in more than a decade — were each given a military-grade M-16 machine gun from the Pentagon transfer program, leading one Florida paper to run the headline, “Three Stoplights, Seven M-16s.”

And according to Balko, the Obama administration is actually accelerating the militarizing of the police.

So what exactly do you think is going to happen when the interrogations begin? And another question, are you the type who wallows in denial by reassuring yourself that – I have nothing to worry about if I’m not doing anything wrong? Well you should worry and worry like hell because the probability that you are already linked to someone is pretty much a certainty. Oh, and there is an NSA fortress in Utah that will ensure that there is more than enough storage and computing power to see just what those “three hop” queries may turn up on you. The inquisitors as they always do, will be able to cut deals and people will gladly tattle on just about anyone to save their own asses because this is the way that it works in any closing society where the authoritarians are in total control. During the Nazi transformation of Germany such a system, albeit limited by the lack of high-technology existed and was used not only by the state but by enemies looking to settle scores and others to provide tips that did not exactly lead to enemies of the regime. As Richard J. Evans wrote in his book The Third Reich in Power:

So many denunciations were sent in to the Gestapo that even fanatical leading Nazis such as Reinhard Heydrich complained about them and the district Gestapo office in Saarbrücken itself registered its alarm at the ‘constant expansion of an appalling system of denunciation’. What dismayed them was in particular the fact that many denunciations appeared to be made from personal rather than ideological motives. Leading figures in the Party might have encouraged people to expose disloyalty, grumbling and dissent, but they wanted this practice to be a sign of loyalty to the regime, not a means of offloading personal resentments and gratifying personal desires. Thirty-seven percent of 213 cases subsequently studied by one historian arose out of private conflicts, while another 39 per cent had no discernible motive at all; only 24 percent were clearly made by people acting primarily out of political loyalty to the regime. Neighbors often denounced noisy or unruly people living in the same building, office workers denounced people who were blocking their promotion, small businessmen denounced inconvenient competitors, friends or colleagues who quarreled sometimes took the final step of sending in a denunciation to the Gestapo. School or university students even on occasion denounced their teachers.Whatever the motive the Gestapo investigated them all. If the denunciation was without foundation, they usually simply relegated it to the files and took no further action. But in many cases, denunciation could lead to the arrest of the person denounced, torture, imprisonment and even death.

But if you see something, say something, Homeland Security commands it and it is all for your own safety and happiness.

The folks from the Sunlight Foundation have noticed that the Change.gov website, which was set up by the Obama transition team after the election in 2008 has suddenly been scrubbed of all of its original content. They noted that the front page had pointed to the White House website for a while, but you could still access a variety of old material and agendas. They were wondering why the administration would suddenly pull all that interesting archival information… and hit upon a clue. A little bit from the “ethics agenda”:

Protect Whistleblowers: Often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing government employee committed to public integrity and willing to speak out. Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled. We need to empower federal employees as watchdogs of wrongdoing and partners in performance. Barack Obama will strengthen whistleblower laws to protect federal workers who expose waste, fraud, and abuse of authority in government. Obama will ensure that federal agencies expedite the process for reviewing whistleblower claims and whistleblowers have full access to courts and due process.

Yeah. That statement seems a bit embarrassing at the very same time Obama’s administration is threatening trade sanctions against anyone who grants asylum to Ed Snowden. Also… at the same time that we get to see how whistleblower Bradley Manning‘s “full access to courts and due process” will turn out. So far, it’s been anything but reasonable, considering that the UN has already condemned Manning’s treatment as “cruel and inhuman.” And people wonder why Snowden left the country…

obama documents forged? Link video

There have been many lawsuits challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility to be President—most based on the fact that Obama is not a natural born citizen, his father being a Kenyan. Other lawsuits challenge the validity of Obama’s PDF long-form birth certificate, riddled with strange anomalies like multiple layers and eight different fonts.

The lawsuits have all crashed and burned in flames for two reasons: 1. The court hearing the lawsuits have treated the cases as a joke instead of a valid question of Constitutional requirements. And 2. The plaintiffs haven’t had Reed Hayes on their side.

Reed Hayes is a forensic document expert who may be the man who finally brings down the Obama administration.

In an extensive and scathing forty page report on Obama’s birth certificate prepared for the upcoming eligibility lawsuit before the Alabama Supreme Court, Hayes concludes the following:

…Based on my observations and findings, it is clear that the Certificate of Live Birth I examined is not a scan of an original paper birth certificate, but a digitally manufactured document created by utilizing material from various sources. In over 20 years of examining documentation of various types, I have never seen a document that is so seriously questionable in so many respects. In my opinion, the birth certificate is entirely fabricated.

You might be saying: Okay, there has been something like two dozens lawsuits. They’ve all failed. The court and Obama’s lawyers always deem any experts against Obama’s birth certificate as quacks. So what’s different this time?

Two words: Perkins Coie.

Sound familiar? It should. It’s the law firm that has represented Barack Hussein Obama in virtually every single eligibility court challenge.

And guess who has done extensive work for and testified on behalf of Perkins Coie?

Forensic document expert Reed Hayes, whose abridged list of training, experience, and court cases goes on for a dozen pages.

How will Obama’s lawyers discredit a forensic document expert that their own law firm extensively relied on?

Answer: They won’t be able to discredit him. If they do happen to try to discredit him, every single case Perkins Coie has employed Reed Hayes for will also be discredited.

How’s that for a catch-22?

But that isn’t the half of Obama’s problems.

The gaggle of Perkins Coie lawyers will be arguing that Obama is eligible to be President before the Alabama Supreme Court, with none other than Roy Moore presiding as Chief Justice. Moore is a conservative and strict constitutionalist who has voiced his concerns in the past regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility to be President. In fact, he is the judge who supported Lt. Colonel Terry Lakin’s refusal to deploy to Afghanistan until Obama provided proof that he was a natural born citizen.

Oh, but there’s one more problem. A very big problem: Obama’s lawyers have produced a birth certificate in their brief to the Alabama Supreme Court. Problem: It differs from the birth certificate Obama released on April 27, 2011!

Whoops!

Will Barack Hussein Obama again slither out of another legal challenge to his eligibility?

Is forensic document expert Reed Hayes the man who will finally bring down Barack Hussein Obama?

Will Chief Justice Roy Moore finally conclude the obvious: that Obama is not a natural born citizen? That Obama’s long-form birth certificate is not only a forgery—but a bad forgery?

Time will tell, America.

7 WAYS OBAMA HAS ACCELERATED POLICE MILITARIZATION

Obama

There were signs that President Barack Obama might rein in the mass militarization of America’s police forces after he won the White House. Policing is primarily a local issue, overseen by local authorities. But beginning in the late 1960s with President Richard Nixon, the federal government began instituting policies that gave federal authorities more power to fight the drug trade, and to lure state and local policymakers into the anti-crime agenda of the administration in charge. These policies got a boost during Ronald Reagan’s presidency, and then another during President Bill Clinton’s years. Under President George W. Bush, all of those anti-drug policies continued, but were supplemented by new war on terrorism endeavors — yet more efforts to make America’s cops look, act and fight like soldiers.

But Obama might have been different. This, after all, was the man who, as a candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2004, declared the war on drugs an utter failure. As Reason magazine’s Jacob Sullum wrote in a 2011 critique of Obama’s drug policy:

Obama stood apart from hard-line prohibitionists even when he began running for president. In 2007 and 2008, he bemoaned America’s high incarceration rate, warned that the racially disproportionate impact of drug prohibition undermines legal equality, advocated a “public health” approach to drugs emphasizing treatment and training instead of prison, repeatedly indicated that he would take a more tolerant position regarding medical marijuana than George W. Bush, and criticized the Bush administration for twisting science to support policy — a tendency that is nowhere more blatant than in the government’s arbitrary distinctions among psychoactive substances.

Indeed, in his first interview after taking office, Obama’s drug czar, Gil Kerlikowske, said that the administration would be toning down the martial rhetoric that had dominated federal drug policy since the Nixon years. “Regardless of how you try to explain to people it’s a ‘war on drugs’ or a ‘war on a product,’ people see a war as a war on them,” Kerlikowske told The Wall Street Journal. “We’re not at war with people in this country.”

This was an notable break from previous administrations. Rhetoric does matter, and for a generation in the U.S., cops had incessantly been told that they were in a war with drug offenders — this, in a country where about half the adult population admits to having smoked marijuana.

Unfortunately, while not insignificant, the change in rhetoric has largely been only that. The Obama administration may no longer call it a “war,” but there’s no question that the White House is continuing to fight one. Here’s a quick rundown of where and how Obama’s policies have perpetuated the garrison state:

1. Pentagon Giveaways

In 1997, Congress added a section to a defense appropriations bill creating an agency to transfer surplus military gear to state and local police departments. Since then, millions of pieces of equipment designed for use on a battlefield — such as tanks, bayonets, M-16s, and armored personnel carriers — have been given to domestic police agencies for use on American streets, against American citizens.

Under Obama, this program has continued to flourish. In its October 2011 newsletter (motto: “From Warfighter to Crimefighter”), the agency that oversees the Pentagon giveaways boasted that fiscal 2011 was the most productive in the program’s history. And by a large margin. “FY 11 has been a historic year for the program,” wrote program manager Craig Barrett. “We reutilized more than $500M, that is million with an M, worth of property in FY 11. This passes the previous mark by several hundred million dollars. … Half a billion dollars in reutilization was a monumental achievement in FY 11.”

2. Byrne Grants

In 1988, Congress created a new federal crime-fighting program called the Byrne grant, named for Edward Byrne, a New York City narcotics officer killed by a drug dealer. Over the years, these grants have created multi-jurisdictional anti-drug and anti-gang task forces all over the country. Because these task forces usually cover more than one jurisdiction, they often aren’t fully accountable to, say, a police chief or an elected sheriff. Moreover, they’re often funded either with additional Byrne grants, or with money seized in asset forfeiture proceedings. They can operate with little or no funding from the polities they police.

The results have been unsettling. These task forces have caused numerous deaths, been responsible for botched drug raids on the wrong houses, and have been implicated in corruption scandals. It was Byrne-funded task forces that were responsible for the debacles in Tulia and Hearne, Texas, about a decade ago, in which dozens of people — nearly all poor and black — were wrongly raided, arrested and charged with drug crimes. One woman falsely charged in Hearne was Regina Kelly, subject of the movie “American Violet.” In a 2007 interview, Kelly told me that the violent raids had been going on for years in Hearne before the task force was finally caught.

“They come on helicopters, military-style, SWAT style,” Kelly said. “In the apartments I was living in, in the projects, there were a lot of children outside playing. They don’t care. They throw kids on the ground, put guns to their heads. They’re kicking in doors. They just don’t care.”

The George W. Bush administration had actually begun phasing out the Byrne program. It had been funded at a half-billion dollars per year through most of the Clinton presidency. By the time he left office in 2008, Bush had pared it to $170 million a year. But the grants have long been a favorite of Vice President Joe Biden. And so Obama campaigned on fully restoring their funding, declaring that the Byrne grant program “has been critical to creating the anti-gang and anti-drug task forces our communities need.” On that promise at least, he has delivered. As part of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Obama infused the program with $2 billion, by the far the largest budget in its history.

3. COPS Grants

The Community Oriented Policing Services, or COPS, program has followed a similar trajectory. Its aim is noble, at least in theory. Community policing is the idea that cops should be proactive, and consider themselves part of the communities they serve. They should know the names of school principals, be friendly with business owners, attend neighborhood meetings.

This isn’t the definition of community policing held by many police officials. In the late 1990s, criminologist Peter Kraska found, for example, that many police chiefs consider frequent SWAT raids and similarly aggressive policing to be a core part of a community policing strategy. In fact, some said they considered sending SWAT teams to patrol entire neighborhoods to be sound community policing.

Moreover, police department budgets are fungible — there’s really no way to control how these grants are spent once they arrive at the police station. A 2001 report by the Madison Capital Times found that many Wisconsin police agencies that received COPS grants in the 1990s had in fact used them to start SWAT teams. When presented with these findings, one criminologist was aghast, telling the paper, “Community policing initiatives and stockpiling weapons and grenade launchers are totally incompatible.”

Just as it had with Byrne grants, the Bush administration was phasing out the COPS program in the 2000s. But like the Byrne grants, COPS grants have long been a favorite of Biden. In fact, Biden often takes credit for creating the program, and claims it’s responsible for the sharp drop in violent crime in America that began in the mid-1990s. (There’s no evidence to support that contention, and a 2007 analysis in the peer-reviewed journal Criminology concluded “COPS spending had little to no effect on crime.”)

And so Obama resurrected COPS, too. During his first year in office, he increased the program’s budget by 250 percent.

4. DHS Anti-Terror Grants

The Department of Homeland Security has been giving its own grants to police agencies. These grants have been used to purchase military-grade equipment in the name of fighting terrorism. The grants are going to cities and towns all over America, including to unlikely terrorist targets like Fargo, N.D.; Fond du Lac, Wis.; and Canyon County, Idaho. Once they have a new armored personnel carrier, or new high-powered weapons, most of these police agencies then put them to use in more routine police work — usually drug raids.

According to a 2011 report by the Center for Investigative Reporting, the federal government has handed out $34 billion in grants since Sept. 11, 2001. The grants have also given rise to contractors that now cater to police agencies looking to cash DHS checks in exchange for battle-grade gear. All of which means there’s now an industry — and inevitably a lobbying interest — dedicated to perpetuating police militarization.

5. Medical Marijuana Raids

Despite campaign promises to the contrary, Obama has not only continued the Bush and Clinton administration policy of sending SWAT teams to raid medical marijuana growers, shops, and dispensaries in states that have legalized the drug, he appears to have significantly increased enforcement. Just two years into his presidency, Obama’s administration had conducted about 150 such raids. The Bush administration conducted around 200 medical marijuana raids over eight years.

Obama has also stepped up the heavy-handed raids often used to enforce immigration laws. In 2012, his administration deported more people than in any prior year in American history. He’s on pace to deport 2 million people by 2014, a figure equal to the total number of people ever deported from American until 1997.

6. Heavy-Handed Police Tactics

In 2011, an armed team of federal agents raided the floor of the Gibson guitar factory in Nashville, Tenn. The raid made national headlines and picked up traction in the the tea party movement, largely because it had been conducted to enforce the Lacey Act, a fairly obscure environmental law — not the sort of policy most people would think would be enforced by armed federal agents. The same year, a SWAT team from the Department of Education conducted a morning raid of what they thought was the home of a woman who was suspected of defrauding federal student loan programs — again, not the sort of crime usually associated with a SWAT action. (They also got the wrong house — the suspect had moved out months earlier.)

The Obama administration has defended the use of aggressive, militaristic police actions in court. In the case Avina v. U.S., DEA agents pointed their guns at an 11-year-old and a 14-year-old during a drug raid on the wrong house. The agents had apparently mistaken the license plate of a suspected drug trafficker for the plate on a car owned by Thomas Avina. Obama’s Justice Department argued in federal court that the lawsuit should be dismissed before being heard by a jury because the agents’ actions were not unreasonable.

To be fair, the Justice Department almost always defends federal employees from lawsuits. And it seems likely that any other modern administration would do the same thing. But it wasn’t always this way. In 1973, even the drug-warring Nixon administration fired, and then criminally indicted, 12 narcotics cops for raiding the wrong homes and terrorizing innocent families. Obama may be no different than Bush, Clinton, or his rivals for the presidency in defending drug cops who point guns at children during botched raids. But there was a time in America when even the original tough-on-crime administration was appalled enough at the idea to hold such overly zealous drug cops accountable.

7. Asset Forfeiture

Under the policy of civil asset forfeiture, the government can seize any cash, cars, houses, or other property that law enforcement can reasonably connect to a crime — usually a drug crime. The owner of the property must then go to court to show that he legitimately earned or owns it. Often the owner is never actually charged with a crime. And often, these seizures are made against people suspected of low-level crimes, so the value of the property seized can be less than the costs and hassle of hiring an attorney and going to court to win it back.

If the owner doesn’t try to get his assets back, or if the court rules against him, asset forfeiture proceeds go to the police department that made the seizure. Critics say the policy creates perverse incentives for police to find drug connections that may not exist. But the policy has been lucrative for police agencies, and has been a huge contributor to the growth and use of SWAT teams to serve drug warrants. SWAT teams can be expensive to maintain. Instead of reserving them only for genuinely dangerous situations, asset forfeiture (along with Byrne grants) creates a strong incentive to send them on drug raids. A number of states have tried to curb forfeiture abuses by requiring that proceeds from seizures go to schools, or to a general fund. But under the Justice Department’s equitable sharing program, a local police agency simply needs to ask the DEA for assistance with a raid. The operation then becomes federal, and is governed by federal law. The DOJ takes a cut of the assets, then sends a large percentage back to the local police agency, effectively getting around those state laws.

Under Obama, forfeiture has flourished. According to a 2012 report from the General Accounting Office, the Justice Department’s forfeiture fund swelled to $1.8 billion in 2011, the largest ever. That same year, equitable sharing payouts to local police agencies topped $445 million, also a record.

Obama has fought for broad asset forfeiture powers in court, even for local governments. In the 2009 case Alvarez v. Smith, the Obama administration defended a provision of Illinois’ asset forfeiture law that allows police to seize property they believe is connected to drug activity with little evidence, then hold it for up to six months before the owner gets an opportunity to win it back in court. It’s one of the harshest such laws in the country.

The argument could be made here that the Justice Department has a responsibility to defend law enforcement in court. But Obama has shown a willingness to back down from laws he opposes — notably by instructing government attorneys to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act from court challenges.

But even if one believes that the solicitor general has an obligation to defend federal law, this is a state law. Moreover, it’s a state law that’s actually harsher on property owners than corresponding federal laws. The Illinois law also applies only to property valued at less than $20,000, meaning it disproportionately affects the poor. The Obama administration could have plausibly argued against the law, or simply not taken a position. Instead, Justice Department attorneys argued for it to be upheld. The Supreme Court ultimately dismissed the case without ruling on the law.

In many of these examples, Obama is merely continuing policies that began in previous administrations. And there are some areas where he has made progress, notably by apportioning a greater portion his anti-drug budget to treatment instead of enforcement. But in several of the examples above, he has actually stepped up the policies he inherited.

Obama the candidate made some unusually frank and critical statements about the drug war, incarceration, and the criminal justice system. His drug czar then showed some rare insight into the dangers of war rhetoric when discussing domestic policing. Obama the president has been more of the same, and in some cases worse.

IRS political appointee demanded tea party information

Times best-sellers “The Obama Nation” and “Unfit for Command.” Corsi’s latest book is the forthcoming “What Went Wrong?: The Inside Story of the GOP Debacle of 2012 … And How It Can Be Avoided Next Time.”

irs-2

WASHINGTON — The investigation into the IRS practice of targeting conservative groups moved one step closer to the White House today in testimony before the House Oversight Committee.

Career IRS official Carter Hull, a self-described 501(c)4 expert with 48 years experience with the tax agency, testified the IRS chief counsel’s office in Washington demanded information on the 2010 election activity of tea party groups applying for tax-exempt status.

Hull testified that instead of carrying out his recommendations to approve or deny tax-exempt status to conservative groups, Lois Lerner, the director of the IRS Exempt Organizations division, ordered tea party applications to go through a multi-level review that included her senior adviser and the office of the IRS chief counsel, a political appointee.

William Wilkins, one of two Obama administration political appointees at the IRS, leads the IRS chief counsel.

Scapegoating Cincinnati

Also testifying was Elisabeth Hofacre, an IRS official in the Cincinnati office who was assigned to review as many as 60 tea party applications and who coordinated her work with Hull.

She said the review process and extra scrutiny given the conservative groups was so unusual and she was so frustrated by what she saw as micromanagement, she asked for a transfer in July 2010, which was approved in October.

When Issa asked Hofacre how she felt when IRS officials began blaming the scrutiny on conservative groups on “rogue agents” in Cincinnati,  she said she was deeply offended.

She said it hit her like a “nuclear strike.”

Fireworks were provided by Rep. Jason Chavetz, R-Utah, who was visibly upset over the treatment of Hofacre.

He expressed outrage that the White House Press secretary would blame the IRS targeting of conservatives on two agents in Cincinnati and that former acting IRS director Steve Miller would blame two rogue agents.

Chavetz said the most powerful people in Washington were blaming one of the people sitting at the table in front of him, referring to Hofacre.

He said that makes him believe Washington is involved.

“How dare anyone suggest we are at the end (of this investigation) — we are at the beginning,” Chavetz thundered.

Practically shouting, Chavetz said when ranking member Elijah Cummings, D-Md., went on national television and said the investigation should be closed he was wrong.

Chavetz attempted to soften the stinging public rebuke by adding he had the utmost respect for Cummings.

And, indeed, after Chavetz finished his questioning of the witnesses, Cummings walked across the row, took a seat next to Chavetz, and as the two whispered, broad smiles grew over both their faces.

Cummings then slapped Chavetz on the back and departed.

‘Following the facts’

Committee Chairman Darrel Issa took a moment to deny Democrat charges he was targeting the White House and insisted the investigation is just following where the facts lead, but he also insisted the facts now lead to Washington and the IRS counsel’s office.

However, building up to the hearing, Issa and the House Oversight committee, together with majority leadership on the House Ways and Means Committee, indicated they are getting nearer to laying political blame on the White House for delaying the tax-exempt applications of tea party groups, with the intent to keep tea party groups from fully participating in the 2010 mid-term elections.

“As a part of this ongoing investigation, the committees have learned that the IRS Chief Counsel’s office in Washington, D.C., has been closely involved in some of the applications. Its involvement and demands for information about political activity during the 2010 election cycle appears to have caused systematic delays in the processing of tea party applications,” wrote Issa, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich.; Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio; and Ways and Means Subcommittee Chairman Charles Boustany, Jr., R-La., in a joint letter addressed to IRS director Daniel Werfel.

“[B]ased on his decades of experience, [career IRS official Carter Hull] determined he had enough facts to make recommendations whether to approve or deny the applications … However, Mr. Hull’s recommendations were not carried out. Instead, according to Michael Seto, the head of Mr. Hull’s unit in Washington, Lois Lerner instructed that the tea party applications go through a multi-layer review that included her senior adviser and the chief counsel’s office.”

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has found, according to a website statement posted this week, that according to Hull, sometime in the winter of 2010-2011, the senior adviser to Lerner told him the IRS chief counsel’s office would need to review all tea party applications.

Hull said it was the first time in his 48-year career at the IRS he was told to send an application to Lerner’s senior adviser.

The committee continued, explaining it was not until August 2011 that the chief counsel’s office held a meeting with Hull, Lerner’s senior adviser and other Washington, D.C., officials to discuss these test applications. During the intervening months, the applications languished.

The chief counsel’s office also instructed Hull that it needed updated information to evaluate the applications, the committee said.

Since the applications were up-to-date months earlier, when Hull made his recommendations, Hull testified that he found this request surprising. The chief counsel’s office also discussed the possibility of a template letter to develop all the tea party applications, including those being held in Cincinnati. Hull explained that all the applications were different and that a template was impractical.

Hull’s supervisor, Ronald Shoemaker, provided insight on the type of additional information sought by the chief counsel’s office. The counsel wanted the applicants’ political activities leading up to the 2010 election, the committee reported.

The lengthy review of the test applications in Washington created a bottleneck and caused the delay of other tea party applications in Cincinnati. The committee said IRS employees in Cincinnati – including Hofacre — have said they were waiting on guidance from Washington on how to move the applications forward.

The statement also said Hull explained that he could not provide advice to Hofacre because his hands were tied by his superiors in Washington. Therefore, none of these applications was approved or denied during the time he worked with Hofacre on the cases.

The head of the Cincinnati office, Cindy Thomas, testified that she continuously asked senior Washington officials when guidance was coming, to no avail.

Infamous member of New Black Panthers arrested in New York King Samir Shabazz is best known for bringing a billy club to a North Philly polling place in 2008, which sparked a federal probe. (File photo) Story Highlights King Samir Shabazz was found carrying a loaded, unlicensed handgun in Harlem. He was jailed on $75,000 bail on charges of illegal gun possession and the illegal wearing of body armor. He is best known for bringing a billy club to a North Philly polling place in 2008, sparking a federal probe.

KING SAMIR SHABAZZ says black people should create militias to exterminate whites, skin them alive, pour acid on them, sic pit bulls on them, bust their heads with rocks and even raid nurseries to “kill everything white in sight.” “I would love nothing more than to come home with a cracker’s head in my book bag,” Shabazz, a Philly street preacher and national field marshal for the New Black Panther Party, said on a black-power radio show. Such sentiment hasn’t gotten him arrested. But allegedly carrying a gun did. MORE COVERAGE Carrying illegal gun in Philly isn’t enough for real jail time Shabazz, 41, whose real name is Maruse Heath, is best known for sparking a federal probe for voter intimidation after he brought a billy club to a North Philly polling place on Election Day 2008. But on Thursday night, police in New York say they spotted him wearing a bulletproof vest in Harlem, stopped him and found him carrying a loaded, unlicensed handgun. He was jailed on $75,000 bail on charges of illegal gun possession and the illegal wearing of body armor. He’ll be in court in Manhattan today for a status hearing. He faces a mandatory minimum of 3 1/2 years and a maximum of 15 years in jail if convicted. His defense attorney couldn’t be reached for comment. Shabazz was in New York to help plan a September march commemorating the 15th anniversary of the Million Youth March, according to the national minister of justice and information for the New Black Panther Party, who would give his name only as Imam Akbar. He said the march will be held in Harlem during the National Black Family Convention from Sept. 5 to 8. Akbar said that he has spoken with Shabazz in prison and that he’s holding up well. “The Panther adapts to whatever environment he’s in,” Akbar said. “If he’s there, he’ll only raise the consciousness of those behind the walls.” Party leaders have dubbed Shabazz a “political prisoner” and plan a rally and fundraiser Monday night at a Harlem soul-food restaurant. “All black and oppressed dark people of the planet must rally behind this black united front and fight the efforts of the white devils and black sambos by any means,” the group wrote on its website. Shabazz has long been a thorn in the side of Philadelphia authorities, organizing marches against “white oppression” as head of the party’s Philly chapter. Oren Segal, director of the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, said Shabazz is one of the more outspoken of the New Black Panthers, a group Segal said is the most “militant, anti-Semitic African-American organization in the country.” “It’s something to say if you look at the entirety of its membership that King Shabazz is one of the most vile in his language,” Segal said. “But as absurd and offensive as his language is, he has every right to say what he thinks. However, when you unlawfully possess a weapon, that is illegal and then you’re going to get in trouble.” Segal said that after the polling-place ordeal in 2008, leadership of the New Black Panther Party claimed Shabazz had been put on probation, but that was “all sort of lip service.” “There are times like this it remains to be seen whether they’ll distance themselves from him or not,” Segal said. “They’re sort of hot and cold on him.” With his distinctive dreadlocks, black military garb and tattoos such as “Kill Whitey,” Shabazz has been an eye-catching, ear-assaulting presence most frequently near the Clothespin statue in Center City, preaching racial extremism and distributing the party’s semiannual newspaper. Akbar said a man he referred to only as “Minister Michael” will be taking over some of Shabazz’s duties until his “release from captivity.” Segal said it’s unclear what the effect of Shabazz’s absence would have on the party. “It will be one less anti-Semite and racist in their organization,” he said. “But I don’t expect the organization to fold if he happens to be put in jail.”

Interesting.

Interesting.

On June 13, 2013, Judge Lamberth Chief Judge for the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia gave leave of court to file 74 pages of motions and exhibits submitted by Attorney Orly Taitz in case 11-cv-402 Taitz v Astrue (Michael Astrue was the Commissioner of the Social Security at the time the case was originally filed, currently it is Carolyn W.Colvin)

This is significant, as the motions attached herein show that Barack Obama is using a stolen Social Security number of Harrison J. Bounel, born in 1890, immigrant from Russia, who is presumed to be deceased.

At the time the case was originally filed and heard, the plaintiffs did not have new information that became available recently. Such information includes recently released census data which shows Harrison J. Bounel being born in 1890, recent disclosure to the public of the 120 year SSA rule, which requires release of  SS-5, Social Security original application of  “extremely aged individuals”, meaning individuals of 120 years old or older without a consent of such individual and without a death certificate or any other proof of death, as well as recent report from Merlins Information Systems showing Barack Obama using both Bounel’s name and Social Security number in connection to his property at 5046 Greenwood in Chicago as late as 2009.

All of this information placed Obama in the corner and with no way out. (not counting his planned trip to Africa, of course).  Holder Department of Justice has until 06.27.2013 to file an opposition on behalf of the Commissioner of the Social Security Administration, however at this time Social Security Administration cannot provide any justification or opposition. Holder , Obama  and Carolyn W. Colvin, new Commissioner of SSA have to produce the application, which was filed by Harrison J. Bounel and which would be sufficient evidence not only for an impeachment of Obama, but also for criminal prosecution of Obama.

 

See below:

1. a note from Judge Lamberth stating “Let this motion and attached motions and documents be filed, USDJ (U.S. District Judge) Royce C. Lamberth 06.13.2013″

2. filed redacted motions and exhibits

3. unredacted motions and exhibits, as a reference,  which allow the public to see Obama using Bounel’s Social Security number

Attorney Taitz thanks the public for all the support. Attorney Orly Taitz will be demonstrating in front of the U.S. Capitol together with Tea Party Patriots on 06. 19.2013, 12 noon.  Taitz is asking her supporters to join her and oppose new immigration bill, which is nothing but Mega Amnesty, which robs Americans of their jobs and benefits and dumps the cost of trillions of dollars of benefits for those illegals on the shoulders of overburdened middle class. Corrupt members of Congress completely abandoned 90 million Americans who are out of workforce, who stopped looking for jobs, 14 million of Americans on unemployment, 11 million on bogus disability because they cannot find jobs and 9 million who work part time with no benefits because they cannot find full time jobs. US Congress and Federal government have no Constitutional mandate to facilitate an invasion of estimated 42 million of illegals residing in the U.S. today, which will swell to 100 million new immigrants within 10 years, particularly in the time of enormous unemployment. This is not done to help the illegals, this is done to supply more cheap and obedient labor for ruling oligarchy, ruling gang of 100-200 families of billionaires who keep in their little back pocket both the Criminal with stolen forged IDs in the WH and most of the Congress. Most egregious violation on part of Congress, is unwillingness to hold hearings and impeachment of Obama based on his use of forged and stolen IDs. How can U.S. Congress tell U.S. citizens that they should support this new mega amnesty, that the government will check E-Verify of millions of illegals, when members of the U.S. Congress have in front of them Obama’s failed E-Verify and they do nothing, do not hold any hearings on this issue.

After the protest in front of the Capitol, we will continue with the protest in front of the offices of the most corrupt Senators and Congressmen from both parties, who are refusing to address Obama’s failed E-Verify and and who push for Amnesty and promise to check the E-Verify of millions of illegals  : John Boehner (OH), Nancy Pelosi (CA), Harry Reid(NV), John McCain(AZ), Chuck Schumer(NY), Marco Rubio(FL), Dick Durbin(IL), Paul Ryan(WI), Robert Menendez(NJ), Lindsey Graham(SC), Michael Bennett (CO), Jeff Flake (AZ), Kelly Ayotte(NH) and others time permitting. If citizens do not stand up for their rights and justice, U.S. will turn into a one party dictatorial regime similar to Jihadist Iran, Communist Soviet Union or NAZI Germany.

Three years and 9,000 pages of legislation later, our economy has yet to see any benefits from the passing of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank). Originally hailed as the answer to our subprime mortgage crisis, Dodd-Frank has not only failed to resolve the issue of “Too Big to Fail” (for which it was originally intended), but also failed to deliver any of the savings claimed for it to consumers. What has this colossal piece of legislation done, you ask? Other than force the community bank and credit union industry into alarming rates of foreclosure, and increase bank fees across the board for consumers, not much.
So how exactly did this massive bill come to be law? Robert Kaiser, a 50-year veteran of the Washington Post, has the answer in his new book: An Act of Congress. The problem, he says, is Washington.
Although some have viewed Kaiser’s reporting as a congratulation to Washington for “doing something,” in fact, Kaiser’s reportage paints a picture of the Dodd-Frank legislation as a prime example of what happens when you mix an economic crisis with political ambition and lobby power: bad policy. The mixture of what he describes as “politics-obsessed mediocrities who know little about the policy they’re purportedly crafting and voting on” along with outcry for action in Washington following the subprime mortgage crisis, created the perfect ground for Dodd-Frank to blossom; an immaculate “policy window” ripe for Congress to seize upon.
Kaiser is also not the first in his field to insinuate such a notion. In 2010, the same year that Dodd-Frank was enacted, Professor Stephen Bainbridge (UCLA School of Law), suggested a similar hypothesis. In his
research he compared Dodd-Frank to the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002 (Sarbanes-Oxley), which was quickly enacted following the IT crisis in 1997. Bainbridge defines both Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes Oxley as “Bubble Acts,” characterized by the following attributes:

(1) enacted in response to a major negative economic event.

(2) It is enacted in a crisis environment.

(3) It is a response to a populist backlash against corporations and/or markets.

(4) It is adopted at the federal rather than state level.

(5) It transfers power from the states to the federal government.

(6) Interest groups that are strong at the federal level but weak at the Delaware [corporation mecca] level support it.

(7) Typically, it is not a novel proposal, but rather a longstanding agenda item of some powerful interest group.

(8) The empirical evidence cited in support of the proposal is, at best, mixed and often shows the proposal to be unwise.

The academic work of Stephen Bainbridge and the compelling new book by Robert Kaiser make an unanswerably strong case for the repeal of Dodd-Frank and a drastic change in Washington’s legislative process away from “not letting a crisis go to waste,” to move toward the deliberative process of what used to be known as “regular order.” Voters, consumers, and the millions of Americans seeking jobs should demand that Washington scrap the massive Dodd-Frank regulatory scheme before it does any more damage to the recovery, and instead focus on the real problems facing American economy.

President Obama and his people deserve at least one accolade: they have perfected lying into an art form.

Is anyone in Obama’s closest orbit a truth-teller? 

Jay Carney, press secretary, lied about the Benghazi talking points, the effects of the federal budget sequestration, and Eric Holder;

Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State, a “congenital liar” according to the late William Safire in a 1996 NY Times column, lied to Congress about her role in the Benghazi security breach, and subsequent cover-up;

Susan Rice, US Ambassador to the UN,  lied to the American people on five successive TV news-interview shows about a video provoking the Benghazi attacks;   Eric Holder, Attorney General,  lied to Congress and to federal judges about his role and intentions in obtaining the surveillance and wiretapping authorization for journalist James Rosen;

Douglas Schulman, IRS Commissioner,  lied to Congress about the IRS  not targeting opponents and political enemies of the Obama administration;

James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, lied to Congress about NSA not eavesdropping and collecting phone records and emails from millions of Americans;

Lisa Jackson , EPA Administrator, used at least one alias to avoid scrutiny by Congress;

Kathleen Sebelius,  Secretary of Heath and Human Services  lied about her secret government email accounts, and lied about her soliciting health insurance companies for illegal fund-raising, (and has lied about nearly every major provision in ObamaCare);

Arnie Duncan Secretary of Education, lied about the federal budget sequestration causing mass layoffs of teachers;

Janet Napolitano Director of Homeland Security and Ray LaHood, Secretary of Transportation both lied about sequestration causing massive air travel delays;

Nancy Pelosi, previous Speaker of the House, lied about provisions in ObamaCare and about whether she was briefed about water boarding;

Harry Reid, US Senate Majority Leader, lied about deficit reduction provisions embedded in non-existent budget resolutions and about Mitt Romney’s tax returns.

Ken Salazar, Secretary of the Interior and his Energy Czar Carol Browner lied about and used fraudulent claims to impose an offshore drilling ban in the wake of the BP oil spill, then were rebuked by a federal judge.

If others in Obama’s cabinet or inner circle haven’t been caught lying, it may be only because they’ve kept their mouths shut.

Yet none of Obama’s apprentices can match the master. Obama is an incontinent bladder of lies, deceptions, and red herrings gushing virtually non-stop whether in press conferences, campaign speeches, the State of the Union addresses, or remarks to foreign dignitaries.

Stig Severinsen, who holds the world record for holding his breath under water for 22 minutes, couldn’t endure long enough for the time needed to recite all of Obama’s lies. Obama’s catalog of lies is truly astonishing:

Obama’s lying about the Supreme Court decision in Citizens United , about Al Qaeda “on the run,” about “deficits shrinking,” about Republicans initiating sequestration, about the Benghazi attacks incited by a video, about “you can keep your health plan and your doctor,”  about private sales of hand guns, and the latest about “we believe in the free market; we believe in a light touch when it comes to regulations,” is more than political rhetoric or partisan posturing.  Lying is a way of life; truth seems untouchable, toxic, red hot radioactive to Obama and his minions.

Do you remember in 2009 when South Carolina Congressman Joe Wilson shouted “You lie!” as Obama declared in a major address to Congress that illegal aliens wouldn’t get government paid health care? When in modern history has a president’s lying provoked such a spontaneous outburst in real time? And barely months into his first term?

Lying has many shades; Obama has perfected the bald-faced type, the most jarring, with a repetition that files down the senses, grinds away at outrage.

Obama isn’t the only occupant of the White House to have incorporated brazen lying into his daily habits. Bill Clinton was an accomplished liar, notably in denial of his own personal transgressions. For Clinton lying to a grand jury was just like any other conversation.  LBJ lied about Vietnam; yet Johnson the ultimate political manipulator knew he had misled the American people thus stood down from re-election.

Harry Truman wasn’t shy about describing Richard Nixon’s body of lies, of which Watergate was the watershed: “Richard Nixon is a no good, lying bastard. He can lie out of both sides of his mouth at the same time, and if he ever caught himself telling the truth, he’d lie just to keep his hand in.”

No one likes to be called a liar; it is such a crude Saxon label, and so dispositive; dissembler only a slightly more graceful epithet. Instead, being called an artful dodger would be far more becoming; even better to acquire a more sophisticated Latinate derivative, prevaricator.

More elusive variations on the straight-up unadorned and unvarnished lie have now become the norm, from subtle inflections to translucent mutations.  Untruths, partial truths, prevarications, sleights-of-hand, obfuscations, fabrications, distortions, misrepresentations, mistaken attributions, convenient amnesia, and contingent truths, all forms of dishonesty that seem to be accepted political discourse. They all define Obama’s culture of deceit and betrayal of the American people.

I suppose serial lying, the pathological sort, is a form of sustained self-deception and insecurity sometimes accompanied by identity theft and fabrication of one’s resume.  When lying becomes commonplace, truth telling is hard to recognize, and then so exceptional as impossible to be authentic.  And when lying is the norm, greeted not only with impunity, but affection, why tell the truth?

When Obama or any of his minions speak, do you expect impartial information, an honest appraisal, or objective analysis?  No, when Obama speaks, fact-checkers are forced into overdrive.

As lying becomes the default font, the most egregious practitioners collect the highest rewards. To wit: Susan Rice, a spectacular fivefold liar as US Ambassador to the UN, has now been rewarded by the president to be National Security Advisor, for her laying down the scent to divert the beagles and hounds in hot pursuit of the truth about Benghazi. 

One explanation for Obama’s compulsive lying comes from the accounts of military deception in WWII written in 1975 by Anthony Cave Brown about Winston Churchill, who remarked to Stalin at Yalta: “In wartime, truth is so precious, she should be attended by a bodyguard of lies.” Obama, the reparations crusader, sees himself at war.  At war with a litany of oppressors in his own nation who have seized his imagination since he was a small boy.   Yet what core of truth is he protecting? Well, it is the truth about himself and his agenda that dare not be exposed, much less admitted.

Enablers and apologists have enthusiastically embraced Obama’s culture of deceit. Yet when they realize that they too are the enemy, will they discover a bodyguard of lies protects no one?

In all the hubbub of scandals that have been erupting in Obama’s Washington these days a sentence made by Congressmen Elijah Cummings (D-Maryland), one of Obama’s key supporters, has potential to play a key role in keeping the House in Republican hands. No one paid much attention to the words spoken but Republicans should make hay of it as midterms approach.

Cummings was interviewed by Candy Crowley who never lets an opportunity to shield Obama go to waste — as America witnessed during the Presidential campaign debates. The Washington Free Beacon reports:

On Sunday Congressman Elijah Cummings, the most senior Democrat on the House Oversight Committee said the case of the IRS scandal has been “solved.”

“Based on everything I’ve seen, the case is solved,” said Cummings in response to a question on the topic. “And if it were me, I would wrap this case up and move on.”

Nothing here, just move on and forget about the scandal.

But, of course, it is not just the IRS scandal that he would deep-six; all scandals or anything that would tarnish Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats would never see the light of day if Cummings had his way.

Now why is this important?

Many Americans may not realize how Congress works.

Here is one important primer point: if one party controls either the House or the Senate, that party controls the agenda for that branch of Congress. This is one reason why politicians who foresee continued minority status for their party often retire: they do not like a feeling of powerlessness.

This is why Harry Reid basically has monopolized power in the Senate and has allowed that body to degenerate into a wholly-owned subsidiary of Team Obama, and why Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama so desperately want the House back in Democratic hands. We saw the consequences of that during the first two years of Obama’s first term: ObamaCare, the stimulus sham, and a parade of other horribles.

Not only will they again run rampant over the American people any hint of scandal or any attempt at scrutiny will not see the light of day or be smothered before they appear on anyone’s radar screen. If it is one thing Obama does not want, it is scrutiny.

How is that majority power manifested?

The party in control appoints the chairmen of these committees.

The chairmen of those committees have great power to decide what those committees do (or fail to do): they  can choose to hold hearings, call witnesses, and issue subpoenas to deal with a variety of topics — including those that may be considered scandals. Or they can just table the issue and forget about it. Bad news would just be kept under wraps-never to see the light of day and sunlight, as Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis declared early in the last century, is the best disinfectant.

Cummings serves on the one committee that has been in the forefront in bedeviling the Obama administration since 2010: the House oversight and Government Reform Committee. Under Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Ca.) that group has been exposing one scandal after another once it fell into Republican hands after the 2010 midterm elections led to a red tide sweeping through the House.

But here is a hypothetical: what if the Democrats held the House?

Then the chairmanship would most likely be in the hands of the ranking Democrat on that committee — none other than Elijah Cummings. And he already has displayed his approach towards the administration: to protect and to serve. Not coincidentally, he was promoted into that spot over another Democrat in order to run interference for Barack Obama. According to a Washington Post column from 2010, his new position “will enable him to be the Obama administration’s chief defender against an expected onslaught of Republican-led investigations.”  He has done so for the past two years in a variety of ways: giving witnesses a pass or an out, publicly criticizing Issa for engaging in witch hunts and a myriad of other ways meant to minimize the power of the committee.

If he were chairman, the committee would be rendered impotent or become a tool in Obama’s war chest.

Now how can the GOP not mess this prime opportunity up — as they have so often done?

Perhaps by seeking to capitalize on the growing trust problem besetting Obama and by emphasizing how Obama’s lust for power must be checked by Republicans.

Obama has a growing problem among independents and they can be appealed to.  Once again appreciate the genius of our Founding Fathers who saw the wisdom of a people protected from government run amok by a system of checks and balances.

Exclusive:  says BHO’s team makes mafia look positively civilized


The mafia has nothing on Obama.

Have you seen the headlines? Obama’s IRS is ruthless. They want to know what you say in your Facebook posts, what you are thinking, what you are reading – they even want to know the content of your prayers. Amazing – even the mafia doesn’t ask these kind of personal questions.

Obama’s IRS goes after tea partiers, conservatives and groups that believe in the U.S. Constitution. Even the mafia has more respect for the Constitution than Obama’s government gang.

Obama’s IRS goes after Christian charities, Catholic professors and pro-life groups. They went after Billy Graham? Even the mafia has more respect for the church than the Obama Crime Family.

In one case the IRS offered to “end the pain” if the pro-life group agreed to stop picketing Planned Parenthood clinics. This is a level of extortion even the mafia would be impressed with.

Obama’s IRS released sensitive and confidential tax records of conservative groups to their opposition. They even appear to have released Mitt Romney’s confidential tax records to the Obama campaign. Even the mafia respects a man’s tax returns.

Obama’s IRS also targeted pro-Israel Jewish groups. Are you kidding? Even the greatest gangsters of all-time – Meyer Lansky and Bugsy Siegal – were always friends of Israel.

Then there’s the way the Obama Crime Family treats the taxpayers. Don Obama and his crew are very much like the mafia – except meaner. You see the mafia almost never goes after “civilians.” They only intimidate, extort and kill other mobsters or “associates” active in the criminal world. If only Obama were that discriminating!

The Obama Crime Family goes after every taxpayer in America. Obama desperately needs your money, and he’ll stop at nothing to confiscate it. Whether it’s raising income taxes, payroll taxes, Obamacare taxes, online sales taxes, taking away exemptions and deductions, he’ll find a new and creative way to extort your money.

As a bonus, since well-off taxpayers write most of the checks for Republican candidates and conservative causes, Don Obama is slowly bankrupting his political opposition. Even the Gambinos never figured out how to use the law to bankrupt the other mafia families.

And then there’s the theft on a massive scale that would make the mafia blush. My new national best-selling book, “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide,” paints a full detailed picture of this slow-motion tragedy. Let me share a few highlights of Don Obama’s larceny in action.

Don Obama targets, hunts, demonizes, intimidates and punishes his best customers (business owners and high-income taxpayers). Even the mafia treats their best customers with respect.

But taxation is only the tip of the iceberg for the Obama Crime Family. They can rob widows and orphans blind without ever touching their bank accounts. The Obama Crime Family’s weapon of choice is the Federal Reserve. If Don Obama can’t get his hands on your money, he merely orders the Fed to print trillions in new dollars. That makes your life savings worthless. It threatens your retirement. It even threatens the financial future of your children and grandchildren (because all that debt needs to be repaid).

When it comes to jobs, Obama is the most prolific killer EVER. There are now 90 million able-bodied, working-age Americans no longer working. That’s almost one third of the country’s population. The workforce participation rate is the lowest since 1979. For men it’s the lowest since 1948. Don Obama has killed so many jobs, he should be on top of the FBI’s “Most Wanted List.”

Don Obama also kills spirit. He overwhelms business owners with so many taxes and regulations, they live in despair and depression. Obama is a ruthless enforcer – he created 6,118 new government regulations in just the first 90 days of 2013. He is snuffing out the economy like a mafia paid hit man.

 It makes you wonder who is paying Obama to cause this kind of damage.

The mafia makes much of their money from the sale of drugs. But Don Obama’s drug of choice is entitlements. He has addicted the whole country to “Obama money.” It’s just not worth it to work anymore. This Obama is very good – even the mafia could never destroy the moral fabric of the whole country.

Then there’s the intimidation against “ratings agencies.” Standard & Poor’s and then Egan-Jones downgraded the debt of America under Obama – for the first time in history. So guess what happened next? They were both indicted by the federal government.

Were these indictments a coincidence? No more than if a business owner stopped paying kickbacks to the mafia and suddenly winds up firebombed. These were messages.

Then there’s Obamacare. The IRS predicts the typical family will soon pay $20,000 per year for health care. Since no one in this Obamageddon economy has $20,000 to spare, Obama will turn us all into wards of the state, dependent on government to pay for our health care. Even the mafia was never this ruthless.

But Don Obama saves his real mafia tactics for the energy industry. He despises oil, coal, nuclear and fracking. A true Marxist, Obama wants energy bills to go through the roof so that we all need government handouts to survive. So he uses every trick in his book to destroy the energy producers – from EPA regulations to executive orders.

Heck, Don Obama is so ruthless, he even bugs his friends in the media. He looks at the emails of the moms and dads of the media. He names journalists as “conspirators” for just doing their jobs.

With the Obama Crime Family breathing down our necks, it’s lucky the honest citizens have the Second Amendment to protect us. Oh, right. Obama wants to disarm us. Even the mafia can’t use the power of government to disarm its victims. Brilliant. This Obama Crime Family is in a league of their own.

My apologies for insulting the Gambinos by comparison.
