During the annual meeting of the American Bar Association in May 2013, a senior official at the Internal Revenue Service named Lois Lerner divulged information she knew would be released in a forthcoming report by the tax agency’s inspector general. She preemptively apologized for what she called the “inappropriate” scrutiny of conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status, which came under her bailiwick as the director of the IRS Exempt Organizations Division. The revelation that the IRS was targeting conservative political organizations in an obvious attempt to throttle their right to free expression opened the lid on

This LSM are acting like the children they still are, petulant and unrepentant for their ongoing lies that are destroying our Country. Their "apologies" mean nothing. Only their heads on a pike in front of the offices they worked might wake up the next lot to the price of truth. Oh, it will be the Al Qaeda at some point who will divvy up their recompense for allowing them to breach our shores by ignoring their barbarous actions and threats elsewhere.

Illegal immigration dilemma: Are
migrant children refugees or criminals?
Christian Science Monitor, by Patrik Jonsson    Original Article
Posted By: EagleEye- 6/13/2014 5:25:49 PM     Post Reply
The growing crush of vulnerable migrant children crossing the Rio Grande and entering the US through south Texas has put urgency to a vexing question for the US immigration system: Are children fleeing Central American violence refugees who need asylum or illegal gold-diggers who need to go home? The rush on the border has created what the White House and many others have called a humanitarian crisis. But it has also pushed Washington into finger-pointing mode, with politicians and commentators trying to pin down why children, often guided by “coyote” smugglers, are traveling hundreds of miles across Mexico into the

Failure to reach a deal on Iran´s nuclear program would force Tehran to resume uranium enrichment activities, Iran´s Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi was quoted as saying on Thursday. Speaking at a conference in Rome, Araqchi said he believed it was possible for Iran to reach an accord with world powers in time for a July 20 deadline, with drafting of final proposals due to begin next week. "We need hard work and wisdom and logic to overcome disagreements," Iran´s Fars news agency quoted him as saying. "Iran will return to 20 percent enrichment if a deal cannot be reached ... failure to reach a deal will be a disaster for

Hillary Clinton defends switch

New York - Hillary Rodham Clinton tersely defended her initial opposition to gay marriage, denying in a radio interview that political reasons were behind her shift last year to supporting same-sex marriage. She accused the host of the show of “playing with my words." (Snip) In 2008, Clinton, Barack Obama and other Democratic presidential candidates opposed legalizing same-sex marriage, although they endorsed versions of civil unions. In March 2013, Clinton released a video expressing her support for gay marriage, shortly after she left the State Department. As the nation’s top diplomat, Clinton refrained from weighing in on domestic

Toyota says it is recalling 2.27 million vehicles globally over an airbag system defect that could cause a fire, the latest in a series of callbacks by the world´s biggest automaker. The company, which has now recalled about nine million vehicles in the past two months, said the announcement covered about 20 models, including its Corolla sedan and Yaris subcompact. The fire risk from the defect covers about 1.62 million cars abroad and 650,000 in Japan, Toyota said. “The involved vehicles were equipped with front passenger airbag inflators which could have been assembled with improperly manufactured propellant wafers,” Toyota said in

Uber adds London black

Uber has announced plans to add black cabs to its services, on the day that taxi drivers across London are planning to protest against the app. Uber uses a mobile app to book rides in both licensed taxis and minicabs, then measures the journey distance and calculates a fare which is paid direct to the driver. The Licensed Taxi Drivers Association argues that it acts like a taxi meter, which private cars are not allowed to use, and has helped to organise a protest which promises “severe chaos, congestion and confusion across the metropolis”. Up to 10,000 drivers are expected to congregate around Trafalgar Square from 2pm, causing an estimated

Emirates airline announced it had cancelled an order for 70 long-haul A350 planes from European manufacturer Airbus. The decision was taken following "on-going discussions with the airline in light of their fleet requirement review", Airbus said on Wednesday. Airbus added that it was still very confident in the A350 programme and said there were almost 750 planes on the order book ready to enter service. "The programme of test flights for the A350 is progressing well and is on schedule for certification (by the Aviation Authorities) in the coming months," said Airbus. However the cancellation of such a big order would seem to be

No U.S. dollars to this PLO ´Terroristan´

For too long, the U.S. taxpayers have been forced to shell out money to the PLO-the Palestinian Liberation Organization. For nearly a quarter of a century, the PLO-re-packaged as the Palestinian Authority-has been raking in billions of dollars from credulous officials in the U.S. State Department and the European Union. All the while, the PLO has never truly renounced its objective of destroying Israel. (Snip) The late PLO boss, Yassir Arafat gave orders for the murder of U.S. Ambassador Cleo Noel in 1973. And he invented airline hijacking for terror purposes. Yet, despite all that, top State Department officials have

Uber Protests Poised to Block
Roads From London to Madrid

Uber Technologies Inc., the car-sharing service that’s rankling cabbies across the U.S., is facing its biggest protest yet from European drivers who say the smartphone application threatens their livelihoods. More than 30,000 taxi and limo drivers from London to Milan plan to cause traffic snarls in tourist centers and shopping districts. They are asking regulators to apply tougher rules on San Francisco-based Uber, whose software allows customers to order a ride from drivers who don’t need licenses that can cost 200,000 euros ($270,000) apiece. While similar demonstrations this year have led to smashed windshields and traffic chaos in Paris,

Earlier we learned that in 2010, the IRS sent a massive data base full of confidential information belonging to [conservative] tax exempt groups to the FBI just before the 2010 midterm elections. (Snip) Fast forward to four years later and the Department of Justice has been tapped to "investigate" the IRS targeting of conservative groups, even though they were involved in the targeting themselves. This conflict of interest, which involves the Public Integrity Division, FBI and the Civil Division inside DOJ, has members of the House Oversight Committee crying fowl and reiterating the need for a special prosecutor, not DOJ,

Hillary Clinton’s impoverished claims

Something really doesn’t compute about the Clinton family finances. In an interview Monday, Hillary Clinton claimed that when she and Bill Clinton left the White House, they were $12 million in debt. How in the world did this happen? (Snip) His legal defense fund raised millions for him. Hillary Clinton left the White House with a tidy $8 million book advance. Their finances surely improved from 2000-2008. The New York Times reported in April 2008: “Former President Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton earned a combined $109 million between 2000 and 2007 and paid $33.8 million in federal taxes.”

Bob Welch, the last major league pitcher to win at least 25 games in a season, died Monday night. He was 57. Welch went 27-6 with a 2.95 ERA and won the American League Cy Young award in 1990 as he led the Oakland Athletics to the World Series. The A’s announced Welch’s death Tuesday afternoon. Welch grew up in the Detroit area and attended Eastern Michigan University before the Los Angeles Dodgers drafted him in the first round in 1977. He was in the majors the following summer as a 21-year-old and stayed through 1994, spending 10 seasons with the Dodgers and seven with the A’s. He won a World Series ring with the 1981

These shocking photos show child immigrants crammed inside cages and tiny rooms at a U.S. Government border facility--further highlighting the humanitarian crisis along America´s border with Mexico. [Snip] Congressman Henry Cuellar, a Texas Democrat, took the photos on his camera phone to highlight the terrible conditions children are being kept in. In one snap, taken during a tour of the Customs and Border Protection facility in South Texas, a large group of immigrants are locked in a wire mesh cage. This comes as the MailOnline learns that overworked border patrol officers struggling to cope with the huge influx are separating

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. This victory has left them emboldened and only 110 miles from Baghdad. [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. He knew that Iraq’s collapse might enable Al-Qaeda in Iraq to rip the Middle East apart. And today Al-Qaeda in Iraq’s successor--ISIS--have never been closer to their dream.

BOSTON — Once fearing he would be viewed as "a loser for life" if he failed to win the presidency, Mitt Romney is trying to re-emerge as a force in Republican politics. Romney has quietly sought kingmaker status in the GOP´s fight for the Senate majority this fall and its quest to retake the White House in 2016. The effort at revival is fueling whispers about a third presidential run. But those closest to Romney suggest he´s more interested in shaping party politics by lending his name and record-breaking fundraising machine to what he considers the next generation of electable conservatives.

Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement regarding the Internal Revenue Service informing the Committee that they have lost Lois Lerner emails from a period of January 2009 – April 2011. Due to a supposed computer crash, the agency only has Lerner emails to and from other IRS employees during this time frame. The IRS claims it cannot produce emails written only to or from Lerner and outside agencies or groups, such as the White House, Treasury, Department of Justice, FEC, or Democrat offices.

They’re barely old enough to vote, but graduating seniors at a Massachusetts high school were encouraged Wednesday by President Obama to boot Republicans from office and help the administration enact more of its agenda. Speaking at the commencement service at Worcester Technical High School in Worcester, Mass., the president slowly transitioned from delivering a pep talk to leading a political pep rally. After praising the school’s focus on career-centered education and encouraging graduates to give back to their communities, Mr. Obama addressed the rising cost of higher education, blasting Senate Republicans for stalling a Democrat-backed bill that would allow borrowers

Chelsea Clinton earned an annual salary of $600,000 at NBC News before switching to a month-to-month contract earlier this year, sources with knowledge of the agreement told POLITICO. Clinton, who joined NBC News as a “special correspondent” in November 2011, was up for renewal or non-renewal this year. Instead, the sources said, the network decided to keep her on the payroll on a month-to-month basis so that the two parties could sever ties if Clinton’s mother, Hillary, runs for president. Kamyl Bazbaz, a spokesperson for the 34-year-old Clinton, referred POLITICO to NBC News, which declined to discuss Clinton’s contract. “We don’t comment

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton dismissed Matt Drudge and Karl Rove as “gamers” trying to plant false information in people’s heads. In an interview on National Public Radio, host Terry Gross brought up Drudge’s question about whether Hillary was leaning on a walker on her People magazine cover. She also referred to Rove’s questions about her health. “They are trying constantly to, you know, raise false canards, you know, plant, you know, false information, and that´s what they do,” Clinton replied, accusing both Rove and Drudge for not wanting to debate the "real issues." “They want people to get

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said she felt Congress lacked the guts to impeach President Barack Obama for acting like a "tyrant" by refusing to enforce the country´s immigration laws and deliberately causing a humanitarian crisis at the border. (Snip) "Anyone associated with support for Obama’s deceptive ploys that would stoop to using and abusing innocent children must be voted out of office," she thunderously wrote. "Anyone who has shined the boot that Obama’s put on the neck of our economy and security must be held accountable by those with the legal power to do so – Congress." Palin said

President Barack Obama abruptly changed course Thursday on Iraq, saying that ´I don´t rule out anything´ as he searches for ways to help the ailing Iraqi army push back a terrorist horde that has captured to major cities and is marching toward Baghdad. [Snip] ´I don´t rule out anything.´ he said, because we do have a stake in making sure that these jihadists are not getting a permanent foothold in Iraq--or Syria, for that matter. In his briefing with reporters, White House Press Secretary cautioned that Obama was ´responding to a question about airstrikes--or, would he consider airstrikes--and that´s what

Exclusive: Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday waded deeper into an issue that has proved perilous to some of his GOP colleagues, throwing his political weight behind an establishment lobby effort to get Congress to reform the country’s immigration system this year. Mr. Paul, a libertarian-leaning Republican from Kentucky and possible 2016 presidential hopeful, participated in a telephone conference call to conservative and business leaders in favor of immigration reform in an effort brokered by anti-tax activist Grover Norquist, The Washington Times has learned. The business group, the Partnership for a New American Economy, immediately blasted an email Wednesday evening to supporters
