The IRS’s war on free speech
Fox News, by Jay Sekulow

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/12/2014 12:48:02 PM

The Obama administration’s IRS actively attempted to enlist the FBI in its war against the Tea Party. Does anyone still think this is a “phony scandal?” Does the following scenario sound like the United States of America, the land of liberty, or does it sound like a dictatorship, a land of paranoia and fear – where the government permits no challenges to its power? Obama administration officials were willing to go to the greatest of lengths – even to violate the law themselves – to suppress the Tea Party and limit Americans’ First Amendment rights.

Ralph Peters: Jihadi Conquest of
Iraq the Biggest Islamist Victory
Since 12th Century (Video)
Gateway Pundit, by Jim Hoft    Original Article

Retired United States Army Lieutenant Colonel and author Ralph Peters says the recent Al-Qaeda victories in Iraq are the greatest Islamist conquests since the 12th Century. “Patty Ann, this is President Obama’s real legacy. The creation of the first jihadi state in modern history stretching from central Syria to Central Iraq and now approaching Baghdad all because President Obama saw everything through a political lense. He’s gonna end the War in Iraq. He refused to negotiate seriously for residual US presence. And now, just to put this in perspective for viewers, with this jihadi conquest of Mosul and jihadi forces approaching Baghdad,

Recent rocket attacks on Israel from Gaza will have no impact on U.S. support for the new Palestinian unity government, according to State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki. Associated Press reporter Matt Lee asked Psaki, “So how many more rocket attacks does it have to be before you decide that it’s — that we made a mistake?” In response, Psaki said that President Abbas has a “severely limited” ability to stop the attacks, and that “there are no members of Hamas in the technocratic unity government.” “So even though it is backed by Hamas and you hold Hamas responsible for this rocket attack today,”

White House: ISIL Poses ‘A Different

A White House spokesman on Wednesday said the attempt by al-Qaeda affiliates to establish their own nation in the Middle East is a “serious” threat, but different than the threat posed by “core al-Qaida.” “At this point, it appears to pose a different kind of threat to the United States´ interests, but a serious threat and one we continue to be concerned about,” spokesman Josh Earnest said. “Different in what way?” a reporter asked. “Well, different in that core al-Qaida had repeatedly and publicly vowed to attack the United States homeland.

A union representing federal employees at Eglin Air Force base in Florida is demanding that two senior management officials be removed from their posts because they put decals on their personal trucks supporting Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson. Alan Cooper, the executive vice president of the local chapter of the American Federation of Government Employees, said one of the officials also displayed the “I Support Phil” decals in his office last month and offered them to subordinates. “The BUE (bargaining union employee) was clearly offended and disgusted that a senior management official would display the decal on their pod,” read an email

It seems like it was just yesterday that Joe Biden was bragging about Iraq being one of Obama’s greatest achievements. Now this. The Iranian regime just sent troops to Iraq to help thwart the Al-Qaeda advance on Baghdad. The Australian reported: Iran has sent special forces and elite troops to Iraq to bolster efforts by the government to halt the advance of militants. A 150-man unit of the Quds Force, the elite section of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, has deployed to Iraq, supported by a team of Saberin, Iran’s equivalent of the SAS. They will assist Iraqi forces as they regroup

White House: Release of CIA Official’s
Name ‘Inadvertent,’ No Punishments

The White House said it determined that the release of the name of the CIA station chief in Afghanistan was unintentional and said they don’t know of any disciplinary action that has been taken. The station chief’s name was fed to the White House press pool in a list of people meeting with President Obama on his recent trip to Afghanistan. White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters yesterday that the protocol is for the lead press contact to clear names with National Security Council staff before releasing to the media. “The White House Scheduling and Advance staff and the

He should have been hugging babies and otherwise schmoozing his constituents in his district in a last minute effort to get out the vote. But seven-term congressman Eric Cantor was so convinced he would come out the victor in his party´s primary, the Virginia Republican reportedly spent yesterday morning at a Starbucks in Washington, D.C. powwowing with lobbyists two hours away. While House leadership staff were ´shocked´ to learn of the No. 2 Republican´s defeat last night but former Cantor staffers and conservative activists could smell defeat in the air as far back as January, when Cantor´s opponent, Dave Brat,

One day before Majority Leader Eric Cantor´s historic primary loss, the Wall Street Journal reported: “Immigration´s Primary Effect Muted.” One day after, the newspaper is reporting nothing like the shocking upset will happen again. “Those senators have been preparing for months and months for whatever might come their way and they won’t be caught off guard,” Brian Walsh, a paid consultant of the National Republican Senatorial Committee told the Journal for a piece headlined “GOP Establishment: No More Surprises Coming.” “I don’t believe the circumstances we saw in Virginia are going to be replicated in any other Senate races,” Walsh told the

A day after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) lost his primary after Dave Brat hammered him on amnesty, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) embraced "immigration reform" on a conference call with Michael Bloomberg´s pro-amnesty group and Grover Norquist. Paul, a potential 2016 contender, reportedly said that "amnesty is a word that’s trapped us," and, according to CNN, emphasized, "If you want immigration reform, there has to be openness to compromise." Earlier on Wednesday, talk radio host Rush Limbaugh declared that when politicians in Washington say "immigration reform" what they really mean is "amnesty." “I say everywhere I go, ´I am

President Obama spoke at a Democratic Party fundraiser Wednesday night and addressed the Beltway conventional wisdom that Eric Cantor‘s defeat at the hands of Dave Brat, an unknown on the national stage, means immigration reform is dead. Obama stated unequivocally that he “fundamentally reject[s]” that idea. The president remarked on how pundits are declaring immigration reform dead and declared, “I fundamentally reject that. I will tell the Speaker of the House that he needs to reject that. Because if you met those kids today, you would know that politics can’t play a part in it.” Obama talked about the importance of standing

   

 



 
Surge in illegals immigrants blamed

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article

Illegal immigrants from Central America are surging across the U.S.-Mexico border because they believe they can take advantage of American immigration policy and gain at least a tentative foothold in the country, according to an internal Border Patrol intelligence memo. The immigrants come seeking “permisos,” which apparently are the “notices to appear,” the legal documents given to non-Mexicans caught at the border, according to the memo, which was viewed by The Washington Times and raised several times Wednesday at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Those notices officially put the immigrants into deportation proceedings. The immigrants usually are released to await a

College professor David Brat knocked off House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.) Tuesday in the biggest congressional upset in years. Mr. Brat ran an underfunded campaign based in part on Mr. Cantor’s supposed support for comprehensive immigration reform, when Mr. Cantor has for months been seen by immigration reform advocates as the key roadblock to House legislation. Mr. Brat was so unknown that his Wikipedia entry was only two sentences before Tuesday night. Mr. Brat, an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Va., had support from radio host Laura Ingraham, who hosted a rally with him in a

The staggering Republican primary defeat tonight of Eric Cantor, the second highest-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives and the third most-powerful Republican in Washington, is a reminder of just how volatile American politics has become. And how responsive. Eric Cantor wasn’t supposed to lose. His own pollster had him up by, get this, 34 points the other week. He’d raised nearly $5 million, and in the past two weeks spent $1 million against his rival’s $79,000. Not enough. There’s a lot of triumphalist talk tonight about sending a message to Washington and the establishment vs. the outsiders and all

A bipartisan delegation of House lawmakers are circulating a measure to reprimand the Obama administration for violating a U.S. law mandating that the administration provide Congress with advance notice before releasing dangerous terrorists from the Guantanamo Bay prison camp. The resolution comes in response to White House efforts to keep Congress in the dark about its controversial decision to release five top Taliban prisoners in exchange for captured Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel admitted in testimony to lawmakers Wednesday that the Obama administration intentionally and knowingly ignored the law, which mandates that Congress be given 30

The problem with Hillary Clinton’s recent statement of her financial troubles- in which she stated that she and her husband were “dead broke” when they left the White House- is not that her being well off would make it difficult to run as a Democrat, says Charles Krauthammer, but rather that it demonstrates her “intrinsic insincerity.” “She is continually crafting what she says, crafting what her position is going to be, crafting conduct to meet a certain perception,” he said on Thursday’s Special Report. “When you do that day in or day out…you trip up because you can’t remember the

The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News. The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for

It is just about impossible to keep up with all of the Obama administration scandals, but the corruption of the Internal Revenue Service ranks near the top. Unfortunately, it has gone hand in hand with Barack Obama and Eric Holder’s corruption of the Department of Justice. The perversion of law enforcement agencies for political ends is starkly revealed by the fact that in 2010, as part of its effort to stem the Tea Party movement, the IRS gave the FBI disks containing more than 1.1 million pages of documents on Section 501 non-profits, so that the FBI could selectively prosecute

Representative Peter King (R-NY) warned on Morning Joe Wednesday morning that the Rand Paul/Ted Cruz wing of the Republican Party would use House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) surprise defeat last night to push a far-right agenda bent on shutting the government down. “My concern is a lot of things are going to be dead and pushed aside,” King said. “I’m concerned that the Ted Cruz supporters, the Rand Paul supporters, are going to use this as an excuse to basically stop the government from functioning.

The Islamic State of Iraq and greater Syria (ISIS) is shredding Iraq. After seizing the northern city of Mosul on Monday, on Tuesday ISIS stormed down Iraq’s route 1 highway to take Tikrit.

[Snip] What´s happening in Iraq and Syria today is the nightmare that drove George W Bush to gamble everything on his January 2007 surge.

In a stunning upset propelled by tea party activists, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) was defeated in Tuesday’s congressional primary, with insurgent David Brat delivering an unpredicted and devastating loss to the second most powerful Republican in the House who has widely been touted as a future speaker. The race called shortly after 8 p.m. Eastern by the Associated Press. Brat’s victory gives the GOP a volatile outlook for the rest of the campaign season, with the party establishment struggling late Tuesday to grapple with the news and tea party conservatives relishing a surprising win. “This is an earthquake,”

Before he became a Taliban prisoner, before he wrote in his journal “I am the lone wolf of deadly nothingness,” before he ever joined the Army, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was discharged from the U.S. Coast Guard for psychological reasons, said close friends who were worried about his emotional health at the time. The 2006 discharge and a trove of Bergdahl’s writing — the handwritten journal along with other essays, stories and e-mails provided to The Washington Post — paint a portrait of a deeply complicated and fragile young man who was by his own account struggling to maintain his mental

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that the Irving-based Boy Scouts of America perpetuates “the worst stereotypes” by barring gay people from becoming Scout leaders. “The continuation of a policy that discriminates against gay adult leaders — by an iconic American institution — only preserves and perpetuates the worst kind of stereotypes,” Holder said in a speech to the gay civil rights group Lambda Legal in Washington. Holder did not announce any legal action against the Boy Scouts. A Supreme Court decision 14 years ago said the Scouts, as a private entity, had a right to discriminate against
