Pat Caddell Says Establishment Republicans
"Want the IRS to Go After" The Tea Party
Breitbart Big Government, by Michael Patrick Leahy    Original Article

The civil war between the Tea Party and the GOP Establishment has been brutal. But could it be the reason congressional Republicans aren´t putting the heat on President Obama for the IRS scandal? Democratic pollster Pat Caddell thinks so, and radio host Rush Limbaugh said it´s plausible. One historian even told Breitbart News the modern GOP resembles a "crime family." "The establishment Republicans want the IRS to go after the Tea Parties," Caddell told Fox News on Sunday.

Federal agents believe drug cartels have moved into Colorado and are using the recent legalization of marijuana within the state as a front to make money illegally. Drug cartels – both from Columbia and Mexico – have suffered major revenue losses following the legalization of recreational marijuana in Colorado on January 1. The Feds believe the gangs will now turn to the legal businesses in the state to find ways of making up for the shortfall in their profits. ‘Our intelligence tells us, and all indications are (drug cartels) are going to move in if they haven´t already,’ Tom Gorman,

“Son of God” producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey have cast Satan out of their upcoming Biblical epic about Jesus Christ, an individual familiar with the 20th Century Fox project has told TheWrap. “Son of God” is a reshaped version of last year’s hit History Channel miniseries “The Bible,” which co-starred Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni as Satan. Burnett and Downey came under fire last year because Ouazanni bears a striking resemblance to President Barack Obama, though the producers said at the time that the casting controversy was unintentional and merely coincidental. “Someone made a comment that the actor who played the

A transgender Italian politician has been detained in Sochi for carrying a rainbow gay pride flag which read: "Gay is OK." Vladimir Luxuria was arrested at the Winter Olympics site Sunday shortly after posting a snap of herself holding the ensign and a multi-colored umbrella on Twitter. "In your face Putin!" the former Communist Refoundation Party member - and first openly trans member of the European Parliament - wrote as a caption underneath the picture. Her stunt was in protest at Russian President Vladimir Putin´s law that makes "promoting homosexuality" a criminal offence. An Italian foreign ministry official told The

Goats are pretty interesting animals. They are adorable and playful — and one variety even fake-faints when scared. But have you ever watched the little hoofed creatures attempt to balance on a flexible metal arch? Redditor gsoltesz decided to share some of this joy. The video, uploaded to Youtube with the title “Chèvres en équilibre,” like a mysterious art film, garnered over 16 thousand views within its first hour online. It may not be the greatest work of cinematography, but it sure is cute.

Who died and made John Kerry an Islamic scholar? U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry spent part of his Sunday in his stocking feet at an Indonesian mosque, at one point beating a huge drum used to call Muslims to prayer. Kerry’s visit to the modern Istiqlal Mosque in central Jakarta, said to be the largest mosque in Southeast Asia with a capacity of 130,000, was designed to demonstrate his respect for Islam as he visited the world’s largest Muslim-majority nation. — Having removed his shoes in keeping with Islamic custom, Kerry at one point was shown a gigantic, skin-covered drum which rests sideways

Historians, political scientists and other academics who rated first ladies for their integrity put Hillary Clinton in the bottom half of the rankings – in 21st place – despite her sixth-place overall ranking in the survey. That poor showing in the honesty-related category put her below nearly every first lady since the 1920s, including Pat Nixon. Nancy Reagan was the only modern first lady judged less trustworthy than Mrs. Clinton. ´Trustworthiness was never the Clintons´ long suit,´ University of Virginia Center for Politics Director Larry Sabato told MailOnline. The Siena Polling Institute has conducted the survey five times since 1982, with Clinton debuting

Chicago - For many older Americans who lost jobs during the recession, the quest for health care has been one obstacle after another. They're unwanted by employers, rejected by insurers, struggling to cover rising medical costs and praying to reach Medicare age before a health crisis. These luckless people, most in their 50s and 60s, have emerged this month as early winners under the nation's new health insurance system. Along with their peers who are self-employed or whose jobs do not offer insurance, they have been signing up for coverage in large numbers, submitting new-patient forms at doctor's offices and filling prescriptions

CAMBRIDGE – Cambridge police say the man wanted for sucker punching at least three people over the weekend is not part of a disturbing national trend known as the ‘knockout game.’ The series of unprovoked attacks happened in broad daylight Saturday afternoon between Massachusetts Avenue and Trowbridge Street. In this first incident, according to a Cambridge police report, a man told officers he was walking towards Central Square when the suspect walked “directly towards him.” “He stepped to his left and the suspect mirrored that move.

The Blair Papers which the media initially covered up and then diverted attention from, were quite revealing when it came to Hillary’s attitude toward not only her husband’s sexual misconduct, but even those of Republicans like Bob Packwood. (snip)Hillary Clinton is pathetic, makes constant excuses for Bill Clinton, blames herself and blames the women that her husband goes after. As a feminist role model, she’s right up there with her aide, Huma Abedin. In a Dec. 3, 1993, diary entry, Blair recounted a conversation with the first lady about “Packwood”—a reference to then-Sen.

MIDDLESBORO — Snake-handling preacher Jamie Coots, who never backed away from his beliefs despite derision, criminal charges and excruciating bites, died Saturday night after being bitten by a rattlesnake during a church service. Family members of Coots, 42, refused medical treatment for him. He was pronounced dead about two hours after the rattler sank its fangs into his right hand. His son said the poison overwhelmed his father within minutes of the bite. "It was the quickest snakebite I ever seen in my life," Coots´ son, Cody, said Sunday.

America’s Founding Fathers fiercely held to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—values which Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed align seamlessly with Obamacare. Pelosi explained why the law is “very sound policy” during a press conference Friday: To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This law, the affordable care act, is about a healthier life, the liberty to pursue your happiness. That is solid policy, and the mandate is central to that. This argument should be added to the montage of lies being promulgated by the Obama

It turns out President Barack Obama is a TV fanboy. We already knew that Pennsylvania Avenue´s most famous resident is a "Homeland" fanatic, but that´s not the only small screen favorite that sets his pulse racing. The president asked HBO Chief Executive Officer Richard Plepler at last week´s state dinner for French President Francois Hollande if he could score him advance copies of "True Detective" and "Game of Thrones," according to the New York Times. President Obama reportedly was hoping to catch up on the two shows over the Presidents Day Weekend."True Detective" has aired five of its eight episodes, but "Game

If you’re a conservative, you don´t need to silence the opposition. In fact, we conservatives want liberals to talk, to make buffoons of themselves, to prove their folly. We want liberals to expound upon their ridiculous ideas, to show the world exactly what they´re about. Nancy Pelosi? Give that tiresome woman a microphone. Chatty liberals are the best advertisement for conservatism. But liberals just can’t have conservatives speaking. We’ll tell the truth, and that’s why liberals need to shut us up. Their traditional intimidation tactics are wearing out. Calling someone a “racist” used to be a devastating moral indictment. Liberals’ promiscuous employment of

The New York Daily News reports the distressing finding that of fears that the nation is facing an imminent shortage of clowns: Membership at the World Clown Association, the country’s largest trade group for clowns, has dropped from about 3,500 to 2,500 since 2004. Let’s see: that time period would correspond with the Democrats electing more of their clowns to Congress, electing the Obama Administration. Not to worry: the solution to the World Clown Association’s woes is obvious, and one place they might start to find a first-rate clown is the State Department.

GENEVA — Locking the pilot out of the cockpit, an Ethiopian Airlines co-pilot hijacked a plane bound for Italy on Monday and diverted it to Geneva, where he asked for asylum, officials said. One passenger said the hijacker threatened to crash the plane if the pilot didn’t stop pounding on the locked door. Another said passengers were terrified “for hours” as the plane careened across the sky. The Boeing 767-300 took off from the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa on an overnight flight to Milan and Rome, but an Ethiopian official said it sent a distress message over Sudan that

Last month, a group of Republican senators unveiled a health care plan that grappled with how to create an alternative to President Obama´s health care law as part of a strategy to repeal it. A conservative group known as the 2017 Project, headed by Jeffrey Anderson, has released another proposal rooted in the following premise: "The common formulation is that we need to ´repeal and replace´ Obamacare. The truth is more nearly the reverse: We need to advance a winning alternative to pave the way to full repeal." Like the proposal offered by Sens. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., Richard Burr, R-N.C.,

House Democrats are vowing to try a rarely used tactic to force votes in the GOP-led chamber on the minimum wage and immigration reform, a strategy that will likely fail but might hurt Republicans with voters in this year’s elections. The tactic is known as a “discharge petition." It would require the minority party, in this case Democrats, to persuade roughly two dozen Republicans to defy their leadership and join Democrats in forcing a vote on setting the federal minimum wage at $10.10 an hour. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said fellow chamber Democrats will push the issue when
