The IRS Scandal and the
Politicization of Justice

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Hans von Spakovsky & John Fund

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/28/2014 3:30:30 PM

If you want a good illustration of how Attorney General Eric Holder has politicized the Justice Department and its prosecutorial decision-making, all you have to do is look at what Justice has not done in just one part of the IRS scandal. Despite its agreement to settle a lawsuit filed by the National Organization for Marriage against the IRS for the illegal disclosure of confidential tax information, it has not prosecuted any of the individuals or organizations who illegally disclosed and published that information. The IRS, which was represented by Justice Department lawyers in the civil case, agreed to pay NOM

Comments:
An employee said of the DOJ: "that Holder has “racialized and radicalized” DOJ to the “point of corruption.” How terribly disturbing and infuriating. As if we needed more proof. Again I say, just imagine if a Bush DOJ behaved like this and disclosed confidential tax information on some gay groups. The media would be aflame every single day 24/7.

What is the Statue of Limitations? Our next nominee MUST promise to persecute this (and others but especially this) scandal if elected. IMHO that promise along will bring out the base, maybe even if another squish is nominated. A side benefit will be a honest administration as "running out the clock" will no longer be an option.

Yes, and Eric the Red holds this power in part because my two "conservative" senators, Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker, voted to confirm him as AG.
Vote Joe Carr now;
Anybody but Corker, 2018

Being chased by a giant mutant spider is enough to send most people into a fit of terror. So it´s not surprising that this pooch caused quite a stir when she was let loose disguised as a terrifying eight-legged beast. Chica the DogSpider is the work of Polish prankster Sylwester Wardega, who dressed up his pooch in the fur-covered costume before releasing her on an unsuspecting public. A hilarious video, which has had more than three million views on YouTube in just one day, shows the hairy creature lurking behind doorways, ready to pounce on its victims. In one scene, a man taking

Obama: ‘You Can’t Contain’ ISIS,
Goal Has to Be to ‘Dismantle Them’

For the past day or so, President Obama has gotten lots of scrutiny for the kind of rhetoric he’s used in talking about ISIS; the “manageable” threat line getting a fair amount of pushback. Today Obama clarified that his goal with ISIS is to “dismantle them.” During a press conference earlier this week, following the release of a second ISIS video of an American citizen being beheaded, the president both said that ISIS should be reduced a “manageable” threat and that the goal should be to “degrade and destroy” ISIS. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel defended Obama and said the latter

President Obama was asked whether he´ll be delaying executive action on immigration until after the mid-term election. He told reporters he was still reviewing options but that he´s going to act "within the legal constraints of my office."

The terrorists of the Islamic State (ISIS, or ISIL) have taken their fight beyond their initial enemies--the U.S. and their Arab/Muslim rivals--and have declared their intent to challenge powers far beyond, including Russia. The notion of a global conflict might satisfy the Islamic State´s ideological vision of a Muslim caliphate, but it may also unite the fractured Great Powers to crush ISIS in a war that could spread across several continents. ISIS issued a threat to Russian president Vladimir Putin earlier this week, after the group seized control of a Syrian airfield with Russian jets and equipment supplied to the regime

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is currently traveling in Mexico, but he has absolutely no desire to discuss immigration reform or the crisis on the border. During remarks to the press, Christie actively challenged reporters who pressed him on the issue. "I know you guys are begging to have me focus on immigration, and let me put you to rest: I´m not going to," he said, according to CNN´s Ashley Killough. "You can ask in 18 different ways. ... I´m not giving you the story, so you can move on to whatever your next questions are." According to the Department of Health

Border Patrol Agents Speak Out

NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas — The National Council of Border Patrol Agents (NBPC) is responding to the increasing assaults against the agents who protect our border with the production of a documentary movie that tells their story. While violent assaults frequently leave agents injured and even hospitalized, U.S. Attorneys often fail to prosecute the illegal aliens who commit the assaults. As recently as last month, charges against an accused illegal alien drug smuggler who assaulted a Border Patrol agent while attempting to escape were dismissed. The documentary will tell the story of these agents and the outrageous behavior of the government

Thursday on "Kilmeade and Friends," Ret. U.S. Air Force Gen. Michael Hayden, the former director of the CIA and NSA, told Fox News Radio host Brian Kilmeade that because President Barack Obama preferred to read his intelligence briefings instead of engaging with officials and asking questions like former President George W. Bush, it was not easy to get the assessments across to the current commander-in-chief. Hayden said, "People like me have to accommodate to people like that," adding "my old job is easier when you are face to face," but he said, "President Obama absorbs information by reading and reflecting."

On Friday’s “America’s Newsroom” on the Fox News Channel, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) reacted to three security operators on duty at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi stepping forward and tying U.S. inaction directly to the death of former U.S. ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. (Snip) “[I]’ll tell you something else -- after over a year, after Benghazi I had an intelligence officer who was working North Africa at the time -- Benghazi, I finally saw him, I said where have you been?

On Wednesday, MSNBC´s Luke Russert, who somehow will be a regular Meet The Press panelist, said NFL teams did not flock to sign Michael Sam after the Rams cut him because he is gay. "So, let’s call a spade a spade," Russert said, according to a Newsbusters transcript. "The reason Michael Sam isn´t on any active rosters isn´t because he can’t play and isn’t because of the media circus, the reason why there is a slowness to signing him to a practice squad is probably because he´s gay." Time´s Sean Gregory piled on, saying teams were "cowardly" for not signing Sam and

A deadly albino cobra that ran loose for days in a Southern California neighborhood was captured on Thursday. ´We are overjoyed. We are glad that the public was not harmed,´ Los Angeles County spokesman Brandon Dowling said after county animal control officers nabbed the monocled cobra shortly after 3 p.m. Television reports showed officers using a long-handled tong-like grabber to haul the snake from a pile of scrap lumber in a backyard and put it in a long wooden box. It was taken to an animal shelter. The snake didn´t go quietly, though. ´Once we grabbed it, it was afraid

“We can fix these problems,” Paul Ryan tells me. He’s referring to the sluggish economy, the rising cost of living, broken immigration and health care systems, burdensome regulations, and stifling tax code. What would it take? The Republican Party has to win the Senate in 2014 and the White House in 2016. Easier said than done. Especially when conservatives face an enemy inside their own party: the GOP consultant class. “Everyone calls it ‘the Establishment,’” Ryan says. “That’s a loose word.” What he has in mind are Republican ad makers, lobbyists, public relations guys, media consultants, speechwriters, pollsters, retired officials, and fundraisers—the

Barack Obama stands apart from other modern American Presidents in many ways. (snip)the widespread view that he is the coolest President ever. This supernal coolness is not new. In his autobiography, Dreams From My Father, the President wrote that in his teenage years “I tried my best to be cool at all times” (p. 82). However, leaving aside the contradiction inherent in trying to be cool, it is possible that Barack Obama’s teenage experiences may have left him psychologically, and perhaps even neurologically, incapable of performing fundamental tasks of his current position. Much of the appeal of coolness is its

Last Wednesday, at a ceremony to appoint Texas lawyer Shaarik Zafar to be special representative to Muslim communities, Secretary of State John Kerry said it was the United States’ Biblical “responsibility” to “confront climate change,” including to protect “vulnerable Muslim majority counties.” Kerry said Scripture, in particular the Book of Genesis, makes clear it is our “duty” to protect the planet and we should look at Muslim countries “with a sense of stewardship of earth,” adding, “That responsibility comes from God.” And here you thought all along that “Uncle Joe” was the resident crazy in the Obama administration.

Maybe the news that a second American has been beheaded will force President Obama to recognize he has no more compelling priority today than stopping the Islamic State and its bloodletting. In its latest barbarity, ISIS aimed to project American weakness to the world. Just before he beheaded Steven Sotloff, the ISIS executioner explained the butchery this way: I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State, because of your insistence on continuing your bombings.?.?. So just as your missiles continue to strike our people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your

Up to 70 veteran USA Today journalists, editors, and others were laid off Wednesday, and reports claim that the newly unemployed were "marched out by security" and within 15 minutes had their email accounts shut off. The layoffs came as no surprise after the Gannett Company followed the lead of many other companies that have already separated and spun off their dying publishing business into separate companies. It was only a few weeks ago that Gannett did the same. USA Today is Gannett´s flagship publication and enjoys the highest circulation of any other American newspaper. Nonetheless, The New York Times reports that

Legendary comedienne Joan Rivers died on Thursday — exactly a week after she was rushed to a Manhattan hospital when she stopped breathing during a routine throat procedure, sources told The Post. She was 81. Rivers’ daughter, Melissa, had been keeping vigil by her mother’s bedside at Mount Sinai Hospital as her condition failed to improve since she went into cardiac arrest on Aug. 28 at Yorkville Endoscopy. She was moved from the intensive care unit to a private room on Wednesday. The State Health Department has launched an investigation into the clinic.

Secretary of State John Kerry´s speech at the groundbreaking ceremony for the U.S. Diplomacy Center in Washington, D.C.

Kerry spoke after remarks by each of the five former secretaries of state in attendance: Henry Kissinger, James Baker, III, Madeleine Albright, Colin Powell, and Hillary Clinton (Condoleezza Rice and George Shultz were not present.) After extolling the accomplishments of each of the five former top diplomats, Kerry said, "Join me, all of you, in thanking five of our six living former

LAS VEGAS — Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday the U.S. should become what she called the world’s 21st-century clean energy superpower, during remarks resembling both a campaign speech and a call to action at the annual National Clean Energy Summit in Las Vegas. Clinton cast the threat of global climate change as real, and “the most consequential, urgent, sweeping collection of challenges” faced by the nation and the world. “The data is unforgiving,” the former New York senator and first lady said to a standing room crowd of more than 800 people at a Las Vegas

The home-cooked meal has long been romanticized, from ’50s-era sitcoms to the work of star food writer Michael Pollan, who once wrote, “far from oppressing them, the work of cooking approached in the proper spirit offered a kind of fulfillment and deserved an intelligent woman’s attention.” In recent years, the home-cooked meal has increasingly been offered up as the solution to our country´s burgeoning nutrition-related health problems of heart disease and diabetes. But while home-cooked meals are typically healthier than restaurant food, sociologists Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott, and Joslyn Brenton from North Carolina State University argue that the stress that

CVS had planned to stop selling tobacco Oct. 1, but bumped the day up to Wednesday. “Along with the start of CVS Health, the sale of cigarettes and tobacco products at CVS/pharmacy ends today,” Larry J.

The Islamic community demanded an apology after a state representative posted on Facebook to be "wary of Muslim Americans" and then shared a link about the ISIS brutality in the Middle East. State Rep. John Bennett of Sequoyah wrote the comments on Monday night. Oklahoma´s Council on American-Islamic Relations called on Republican Party leaders to denounce the comments on Wednesday.
