White House lawyers tied directly to IRS abuse

Government ExecutiveIn the latest in a long effort to prove White House interference with the Internal Revenue Service, the right-leaning legal group Cause of Action Institute released a 67-page investigative report saying President Obama has “circumvented the congressionally created and authorized procedures for accessing confidential taxpayer information.”

The Obama team allegedly accomplished the interference by “relying on individual consent forms that were never intended for use by the president,” Cause of Action wrote. “The practice has allowed the president to avoid the reporting requirements and limitations placed on presidential access to taxpayer information by the Tax Reform Act of 1976.”

The Cause of Action press release and full report are available.

Note that this doesn't tie Obama to the full Lois Lerner oppressive regime, but rather focuses on Obama's practice of using lawyers who worked on the IRS cases with the groups he wanted to target (and were thus required to have access to tax information otherwise confidential to do their jobs). Those lawyers don't forget that information when they move on to a new position, and while normally this would be a relatively harmless practice had those lawyers respected their confidentiality obligations, in at least two cases it appears they did not.

For evidence of intent, we have the fact that those lawyers were not given taxpayer privacy training since 2009 (when Obama entered office), and the fact that Obama is the first president to recruit from the DOJ tax division.

And remember when Lois Lerner provided the DOJ and FBI with a "hit list" of organizational data she wanted them to target?

There sure are a lot of dots here, how hard can it really be to connect them?

Judicial Watch uncovers flood of refugees entering the US

Judicial WatchThrongs of Haitians, Africans, Russians, Armenians and Guatemalans are being admitted into the United States via the Mexican border with virtually no vetting for security or health risks, high level Homeland Security officials told Judicial Watch this week. Overwhelmed and understaffed border agents are bombarded daily with an onslaught of immigrants from these countries and have been ordered by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to process them as refugees with “credible fear.” Most are camping out in Mexican border towns and going “port shopping” before gaining entry to the U.S., according to federal officials whose identities must be kept anonymous because they fear retaliation. The ports “are unlike anything I’ve ever seen,” said Patricia Cramer, a veteran border agent who serves as president of the U.S. Customs employee union in the Tucson, Arizona sector.

One federal agent at the San Luis Port of entry in Arizona described the situation as a “mass crisis, like a third-world country.” A DHS supervisor in the region told Judicial Watch that the agency has issued an order from Washington D.C. to all agents: “No one is allowed to speak to the media.” The veteran DHS official said that to accommodate the influx border agencies have suspended regular business and “people that have actually gone through all the legal and proper ways to get documents are being shoved to the side.” One frustrated DHS official in the border region said she has never seen this type of rampant lawlessness throughout a lengthy career with the government. “The elected government officials claim we are against terrorism yet they are not doing anything to actually prevent terrorists from entering the country,” the DHS supervisor said, adding that the public should show up at ports of entry to see firsthand the problems border agents face every day.

I'm really running out of words to express my outrage at this abuse of our laws.

Hillary prepping an executive order on guns

PJMediaLoser Russ Feingold was on the campaign trail in Wisconsin trying to win his Senate seat back when he was recorded at a fundraiser saying that Hillary Clinton might issue an executive order on guns.

Further on in the video, Feingold says: “But what I do is I go with the majority view of the people of the state, which is very common sense. They believe there should be background checks. Overwhelmingly, they believe there should be background checks for the internet and for gun shows.”

There already are background checks for guns purchased on the internet and at gun shows. This is a lie the left tells and dupes keep believing it. What the Democrats want to do is stop private sales.

What the left wants to do about guns is anything they can actually make stick. Big slice or little slice, so long as they get to take slices and we never do, they win in the end. And Obama has demonstrated that the Republicans in office cannot effectively respond to executive overreach.

Wikileaks founder Assange has internet access cut by state actor

MSN NewsWikiLeaks says that founder Julian Assange's internet access has been cut by an unidentified state actor. Few other details were immediately available.

Assange has been up holed up at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London for more than four years after skipping bail to avoid being extradited over sex crimes allegations.

The cramped quarters haven't prevented the Australian transparency activist from working and WikiLeaks continues to deliver scoops, including revelations that have rattled Hillary Clinton's campaign for president as the U.S. election enters its final stretch.

Surely Hillary will call for his internet access to be restored promptly... following her election.

About that media conspiracy that doesn't exist...

Newsbuster quoting Margaret Sullivan of the Washington PostI mean, there are media outlets, there are newspapers, there are cable TV stations, there are network news, but there is no, sort of, little group called “the media” that gets together and decides to do terrible things to Donald Trump. How do you prove that? It's a reality check.

I don't even need five words to destroy her. One will do. Journolist.

Rampant voter fraud

The FederalistIndeed according to a Pew Research report from February 2012, one in eight voter registrations are “significantly inaccurate or no longer valid.” Since there are 146 million Americans registered to vote, this translates to a stunning 18 million invalid voter registrations on the books. Further, “More than 1.8 million deceased individuals are listed as voters, and approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state.” Numbers of this scale obviously provide ripe opportunity for fraud.

Those millions of votes can, and will, swing elections.

Coming full circle on Waco

American ThinkerBefore Benghazi, before the e-mail scandal, before the numerous allegations of impropriety involving the Clinton Foundation, there was Waco. On April 19, 1993, a few short months into Bill Clinton’s first presidential term, nearly 80 men, women, and children perished at Mt. Carmel, their religious community and home near Waco, Texas. A Federal investigation into the tragedy in 2000 found that government agents were not responsible for the deaths of Davidian civilians — that the sect members who died there had committed mass suicide, similar to the Kool-Aid drinking by Jim Jones’ aficionados, but more violent. This verdict was significant, given the allegations by Davidian survivors and relatives that sect members had been shot as they tried to flee their burning buildings. And while many laid blame for the outcome at the feet of then-Attorney General Janet Reno, there are claims that Hillary Clinton was actually the one in charge.

More than any other single incident, the massacre at Waco formed my opinions of government. Without a trial, government agents empowered to collect taxes undertook an armed raid on a small collection of buildings inhabited by a peaceful religious sect. When those individuals fired in self-defense, a months-long standoff took place. It ended only when the government chose to burn the compound to the ground while pumping it full of tear gas and shooting anyone who tried to leave. Around 80 people died, murdered by their own government.

And the person responsible may be running for president.

The Democrats are conducting terror attacks on Republicans...

Someone appears to have firebombed the Republican HQ in Orange County, along with graffiti leaving the motive in relatively little doubt. It's worth noting that the Clintons have a history of firebombing people who become inconvenient, although we don't know who was responsible for this attack yet.

UPDATE: Delaware county Republican party HQ has a brick thrown through the window.

Quid pro quo in FBI investigation coverup

Fox NewsFBI interview summaries and notes, provided late Friday to the House Government Oversight and Intelligence Committees, contain allegations of a "quid pro quo" between a senior State Department executive and FBI agents during the Hillary Clinton email investigation, two congressional sources told Fox News.

"This is a flashing red light of potential criminality," Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah, who has been briefed on the FBI interviews, told Fox News.

He said "there was an alleged quid pro quo” involving Undersecretary for Management Patrick Kennedy and the FBI “over at least one classified email.”

It seems like the more information released, the more criminality we find.

Hillary thinks food stamps will fix the economy

Daily CallerHillary Clinton argued that expanding food stamps and other safety net programs is essential to fuel economic growth at a speech to General Electric executives, according to an excerpt of the transcript made public by WikiLeaks Friday.

“Economic growth will take off when people in the middle feel more secure again and start spending again,” Clinton said in her speech at General Electric’s Global Leadership Meeting in January, 2014.

The fundamental problem here is that food stamps and similar government programs are actually harmful. They remove the incentive for people to work and earn money while penalizing those who do work. You can't improve the economy through wealth redistribution, you can only improve the economy through wealth creation.

Free the FBI 100!

PJMediaWhat're we to do about all those agents, analysts and lawyers who are not allowed to speak their minds and tell the American public they serve what they think about what happened?

It's not the Chicago 7 who need to be freed this time. The situation has flipped. It's the forces of law and order -- the FBI 100.

So... Free the FBI 100, I say! For the sake of our country, let's get to the bottom of this. Otherwise there will be a stain on our justice system that will not go away in any of our lifetimes, a stain that is bound to spread into many aspects of our culture, making it unrecognizable.

There are supposed to be whistleblower protections in place for this kind of thing.

Twitter censoring conservative journalists

Project VeritasAfter releasing two viral videos over the last two days, Project Veritas Founder and President James O’Keefe is no longer allowed to access his Twitter account. According to Twitter, he is blocked from accessing his account for twelve hours, at which point they reserve the right to make him pass additional hurdles to access his account.

We need unbiased alternatives, pronto.

Time to scrap the judgement fund

PJMediaCongress must act to end this corrupt device. Either defund the Judgment Fund or set strict limits that require the administration to seek individual congressional appropriations for judgments above a certain amount (say, $1 million), and judgments of certain types (e.g., payments to countries on the list of state sponsors of terrorism, or payments to parties for whom Congress has already provided a set amount in the budget).

In the unlikely event that the Constitution permits a “permanent, indefinite appropriation,” President Obama plainly cannot be trusted to administer it. Congress must either tightly regulate resort to the Judgment Fund or scrap it entirely. Otherwise, future presidents will rely on Obama’s imperial precedent, undoing a crucial protection against autocratic government.

Funny how this sort of censorship takes place during the lead-up to an election. No doubt it will be conveniently resolved afterwards.

Voter fraud is real

National ReviewAccording to a 2012 Pew Research Center survey, one out of eight American voter registrations is inaccurate, out-of-date, or a duplicate. Some 2.8 million people are registered in two or more states, and 1.8 million registered voters are dead.

The Democrats depend on voter fraud to win elections. If you doubt me, here's some video of the New York City voting commissioner admitting he knows voters are bussed from polling place to polling place so they can vote multiple times.

Missing boxes of Clinton emails

Fox NewsBuried in the 189 pages of heavily redacted FBI witness interviews from the Hillary Clinton email investigation are details of yet another mystery -- about two missing “bankers boxes” filled with the former secretary of state’s emails.

The interviews released earlier this month, known as 302s, also reveal the serious allegation that senior State Department official Patrick Kennedy applied pressure to subordinates to change the classified email codes so they would be shielded from Congress and the public.

Under every layer of cover-up there is yet another layer of cover-up.

Vote fraud in Indiana

The Indy ChannelThe investigation of voter registration fraud in Indiana expanded Thursday from nine counties to a total of 57.

Indiana State Police began looking into voter fraud in Hendricks and Marion Counties in August 2016.

Detectives say a group by the name of Indiana Voter Registration Project turned in forged voter registration applications.

They say the group was altering already registered voter's information, changing the voter's address to an address not associated with the voter and without the voter's knowledge.

Note, this was a group -- so we're not talking a single individual on his own. It wasn't registrations for people who didn't exist, turned in to pad numbers or meet a quota. It was altering existing registrations to new addresses, presumably so either a) someone could vote for that person from the new address, or b) that person would be prevented from voting, or c) both.

IRS is still targeting political opponents

Washington TimesThe tax agency, which had been blocking processing, claiming it couldn’t do anything while the court cases were proceeding, quickly kicked into gear and announced they would process the three remaining cases.

In a letter last week to the TPTP, the IRS fired off a new set of questions — the fourth inquiry the group has received since it applied for nonprofit status in 2012. In the new questions, IRS agent Jerry Fierro said he looked over the group’s website and spotted potential trouble spots, including “rallies, parades, educational workshops, speaking events, voter registration drives, fund raisers and straw polls.”

The IRS says those activities could squelch a group’s application.

Problem is, as far as I can tell all of those activities are legal under the current rules. I'm far from an expert on the nonprofit groups, but my understanding of the rules is that you have to have no more than 49% "political" activity but educational and issue activities are fine, fundraising (for the organization itself, not for candidates) is fine, non-partisan voter registration is fine, speaking events are fine (with maybe some limitations on candidates speaking). I guess rallies might be problematic. But the unofficial, intrusive questionaires are part of the targeting that Lois Lerner admitted to and apologized for.

About that media bias that doesn't exist

Free BeaconTalk show host Steve Harvey provided Hillary Clinton’s campaign with the exact questions he would ask of Clinton during a February interview, according to an internal campaign memo sent a week before the interview and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Somehow, I doubt Trump gets the same courtesy.

Supreme Court shuts down political targeting in Wisconsin

Wall Street JournalThe U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected an appeal by three Democratic district attorneys seeking to revive a criminal investigation into Gov. Scott Walker’s recall campaign — effectively ending the legal wrangling over the four-year-old probe.

It took far too long for this abuse of justice to get shut down.
