More Than a Smidgen
Weekly Standard, by Stephen F. Hayes

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/11/2014 5:02:51 AM

The facts are simple. The IRS systematically targeted conservative and Tea Party groups after their activism proved decisive in the 2010 midterm elections—Obama’s famous “shellacking.” The effects of this targeting were widespread. Some Tea Party groups were neutered in the months before the 2012 presidential election. Few of the explanations or justifications of this targeting provided by IRS leaders and Obama administration officials have held up. IRS officials at first denied that any targeting had taken place. That was false. They later claimed that the targeting had involved only low-level employees in the Cincinnati office. That was false. They argued

I dream of a media comprised of Stephen Hayeses that compile unassailable heaps of confirmed facts.

What we have now - including ´conservative´ outlets - is a load of political-expediency shouters telling us what to think.

There was a time when Americans of either party would have been outraged and even shocked at this type of government abuse. They would have risen up together, along with the Press, to stand against this injustice.

Today, half of America accepts tyranny, feigning ignorance, because they believe it further´s their ideas of a better society.

Lois Lerner is not an anomaly. There are thousands just like her with the same mindset who are working feverishly in our government. Bureaucrats in this country everyday are directly through their actions and passively through their non-action are doing their best to push their progressive agenda forward. Lerner deserves jail time as does every other partisan hack employed by the government who believes they have the right to interfere in a citizen´s right to free speech. Lerner is guilty as sin.

A Fair Tax system offers many advantages over the current income tax with it´s mountains of overlapping rules overseen by a clearly corruptible bureaucracy. The problem is these advantages, such as a simpler method of collection (sales tax), requiring contributions from almost all citizens, elimination of loopholes, are all in the favor of the citizen not the politician.

I believe a clearly articulated party platform based eliminating the IRS, reining in or dissolving many other invasive bureaucracies, protecting our borders with physical fences and drastically rolling back the Federal government´s overreach would be a winner in the coming elections.

But what do I know? According to the RNC, as a small government conservative, I´m a racist that wants to return the US to the Jim Crow era and have my "whites only" drinking fountain restored in public buildings.

If the rest of the media want to see how it´s done, watch and read Steve Hayes´ work. He is part of a dying breed of real reporters -- people who actually work to find information. Hayes doesn´t rely on what he is told by tweets and websites and the White House press reports. He has no talking points.

He goes out there and does honest research. What liberals do in comparison to Hayes´ work is like comparing haute cuisine to low-fat Spam.

As for the article itself...

Congressional Democrats have repeatedly called for an end to the investigations on Capitol Hill. The Justice Department investigation—using that word loosely—is being run by an Obama contributor. And Barack Obama, who once worried that such targeting was a subversion of our democracy, has since pronounced, in the face of a steady accumulation of evidence to the contrary, that there is not a “smidgen of corruption” to the IRS targeting. That, too, is false.

Yes, our democracy has indeed been subverted. Lerner, Holder, Obama, Koskinen, Sebelius (mercifully absent now) and the rest of the heads of Obama´s Agencies have proved that they believe the truth is to be subverted to the agenda. Liberalism first; everything else takes second place, and truth is nowhere to be found.

But I sense fresh air and shark-jumping with this latest immigration flood. I pray every day that even God will have had enough of this monster.

The table is set for a conservative to step up with a simple agenda to return us to the White House:

1. Refine baby refine. This country is flooded with oil so we need to increase refining capacity dramatically and drive the price of gas down so the economy can explode.
2. Build a fence around the border. Krauthammer said it best - if fences don´t work why is there one around the White House.
3. Eliminate the tax code and go to a national sales tax or flat tax. Eliminate the IRS. One reason why people are so scared of the IRS is because there are a lot of tax cheats out there. If the cheats paid what they are supposed to it would eliminate the deficit. Harder to cheat on a national sales tax or flat tax.
4. Repeal Obamacare and allow health insurance companies to sell across state lines.
5. Invest in smart science that will solve real problems such as desalination technology to help solve our drought issues in CA and elsewhere instead of BS projects such as the mating tendencies of the Blue Billed Hummingbird. We have drought stricken areas bordered by oceans of water - surely we can figure out how to efficiently make ocean water usable - especially with all the new sources of cheap natural gas and oil.
6. Return our military to the feared fighting force it once was rather than the social experiment it has become and quit pandering to the LGBT crowd.

I do share something in common with Michelle Obama though. Obama´s election has made me feel about my country like I never have before too - hers was pride - mine is embarrassment.

Had even a smidgeon of this gone on in a Republican administration, with the IRS targeting left-wingers instead of Tea Partiers, the Democrats/MSM would have had the president impeached and behind bars within weeks of the first evidence shredding. And the scandal would still be blaring on the front page. Just like they did with Watergate. But no, we cannot accuse, indict, or prosecute our beloved symbols of Hope and Change, simply because they "care" about "helping people" and it´s too mean to question their vaunted "good intentions". The future of the Republic will be ill-served indeed by the GOP permitting criminality to fester with impunity in the Oval Office.

Love Stephen Hayes.. and hes no nonsense way he boils it down in terms the MSM might understand if they really wanted to.

Only concern is request for Special Prosecutor. I heard one response last night that it might not be a good idea as that would freeze all info from coming to the committees and to the GOP for maybe years.. which is what the administration would love right now.. to run out the clock. None of this would hurt the next Dim.. Lois Lerner will be distant memory. And the way things are going, we will probably have much bigger scandals to worry about.

I disagree with #1 and #13 about the value of Mr. Hayes.

Pundits like Steve have been living in a fantasy world - - spending six years giving Stinky the "benefit of the doubt" - - and even today they are unable to see - - or at least unwilling to acknowledge - - that Stinky hates this country and is doing everything he can to destroy it.

Steve is a beltway insider - - just as clueless in many ways as the rest of them. The best I can say for him - - is that he isn´t an America-hating traitor like most of the rest of the media pundits.

#13 We will never have a special prosecutor as long as Holder is AG and I am afraid if we impeach him the replacement will be just as bad.

Can we lift the statute of limitations on these crimes so we can go after the criminals in 2017??

Steve has been found to be a great asset to the Conservative cause. He stays on top of the rapid and ever changing paths this administration walks. Michael Savage,he is also an asset, though of a different nature. Listen to both and make your judgement The two have very valid points to make and realize you are free to disagree with them.

I repeat - -

- - Steve Hayes is a wishy-washy, inside-the-beltway pundit. He has always - - in his own words - - given Stinky the "benefit-of-the-doubt."

He has never referred to Stinky as a liar - - never questioned Stinky´s motivation - - never sounded an alarm about the peril that this country faces.

If we were to rely on Steve Hayes to arouse the public and lead a political revolution - - we´d all be long dead and buried.

And by the way - - I don´t know who Michael Savage is. I´ve read the name - - but I don´t know who he is or what he does. It´s an insult to think that I would allow anyone else to influence my long-held political opinions.

Of all of Obie´s controversies, the IRS is the most insidious. It calls for a complete disbandment of the service, replaced quite easily with temporary flat or fair taxes-- administered by the states where taxes are collected-- until we decide which is best.

No debate, no quibbling. Fire and jail some of these IRSers.

President Obama has emotionally checked out of his job a couple of years early, it seems. How can one tell? Candidates for president who brazenly assume they are the inevitable victor are sometimes accused of “measuring the drapes” for the White House. Obama, conversely, seems to be prematurely packing his bags in hopes for an early departure. ust last week, for example, the Los Angeles Times reported that “The First Family is believed to be in escrow on a contemporary home in a gated community where entertainers Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby once maintained estates”.

As with many of America's great fortunes, the Stroh family’s story starts with an immigrant: Bernhard Stroh, who arrived in Detroit from Germany in 1850 with $150 and a coveted family recipe for beer. He sold his brews door-to-door in a wheelbarrow. By 1890 his sons, Julius and Bernhard Jr., were shipping beer around the Great Lakes. Julius got the family through Prohibition by switching the brewery to ice cream and malt syrup production. And in the 1980s Stroh’s surged, emerging as one of America’s fastest-growing companies and the country’s third-largest brewing empire, behind only public behemoths Anheuser-Busch and

To Save Gaza, Destroy Hamas

Tel Aviv - After nearly three weeks of fighting — notwithstanding the 12-hour pause announced early this morning by Israel — it is time to revisit some basic assumptions about Hamas. Until now, Israel assumed Hamas was the “devil we know,” capable of attacks that were mostly a nuisance; accepting its rule over the Gaza Strip was preferable to risking a vacuum of governance like what we see in Somalia and Libya. But Hamas’s reckless violence in the current round of fighting severely undermined this thinking. First, Hamas has proved a bad ruler. By placing many of its military assets — tunnels to infiltrate Israel, bunkers for its

The average per capita income for the people in Gaza and the West Bank is $2,900 per year according to the CIA Factbook. That means that Gaza-West Bank is listed way down on the list at 172 in the list of nations per capita income. On the other hand, Israel is ranked number 41 on the list with an average per capita income of $31,400 per year. But, not everyone is suffering in Gaza.

If you want to know which individual political race has the biggest stakes in 2014, look no further than the Land of Lincoln. The Illinois governor’s race pits incumbent Pat Quinn, a Democrat, against upstart non-politician Bruce Rauner. Why are the stakes so huge? Because Illinois is arguably the worst-run state in America. It’s a blue state that has been run for many years by corrupt and bungling politicians, including Rod Blagojevich, who went to jail for trying to sell a U.S. Senate seat, and Mr. Quinn, who has run the state’s finances into the gutter. This year shows no improvement. Even as the national employment picture has

The United States is threatening serious sanctions, including banning high-tech exports to Russia. The United States paid Russia 60 million dollars per American astronaut to get access to the Space Station.

Divorce is always tragic, especially when a couple was married as long as Michael Moore and his now-ex-wife, Kath­leen Glynn. Glynn was a partner in film too, producing many of Moore’s best-known works, from “Sicko” to “Capitalism: A Love Story.” The marriage was officially ended this week. But in the process of securing their divorce, Moore and Glynn’s filings have again confirmed that the filmmaker who styles himself a champion of the working class has wealth that would be the envy of many a Wall Street banker.

Slandered, despised, insulted, degraded, Israel is nonetheless winning its war against Hamas. The number of rocket attacks launched by the terror group each day has been halved. The IDF is uprooting the underground tunnels Hamas uses to smuggle weapons, contraband, and terrorists in and out of the Gaza Strip. On Wednesday evening, Israel’s Channel Two newscast carried footage of Hamas terrorists surrendering to the IDF. The jihadists carried white flags. They stripped to their shorts, proving they were not wearing suicide belts. These are facts Hamas does not want you to know, images Hamas does not want you to see.

President Obama insists on flirting with impeachment even as House Republican leaders insist there’s no such possibility. Obama uses a passive-aggressive strategy that can be judged as a political maneuver, a personality disorder, or both. Secure in the knowledge that impeachment is not the same as removal from office, Mr. Obama brings up the topic on his own and with bold defiance. Martyrdom goes well with a Messiah complex and Mr. Obama’s speeches are a non-stop litany of depicting himself as a victim of Republicans.

Even as President Obama grapples with the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border, White House officials are laying the groundwork for a large-scale expansion of immigrant rights that would come by executive action within weeks. Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama´s move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded.
