Obama worked?


PRESIDENT OBAMA: You are the mantle of Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington and Ralph Bunche and Langston Hughes and George Washington Carver and Ralph Abernathy and Thurgood Marshall and, yes, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. These men were many things to many people and they knew full well the role that racism played in their life. But when it came to their own accomplishments and sense of purpose, they had no time for excuses. Every one of you has a grandma or an uncle or a parent whose told you at some point in life as an African American you have to work twice as hard as anyone else if you want to get by.


Well that explains why so many of them are on welfare……

I can't find the answer.  Anyone?

Who knows the whole truth about why Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty along with State Department officials Chris Stevens and Sean Smith died in Benghazi 11 September 2012?

It’s now public knowledge that the ever evolving official administration stories on Benghazi are all bold faced lies. It’s clear that the four Americans who were brutally murdered in Benghazi did not have to die. What’s not clear yet, is who is responsible for these murders? Nothing the Obama administration has told the people about Benghazi is true… but who is responsible?

General Carter Ham and Admiral Charles M. Gaouette know the answer to this question. Where are Ham and Gaouette today? Why hasn’t Issa’s investigative committee called these decorated Military officers to testify before the committee investigating Benghazi?
We have known since 30 October 2012 that these two officers…

1. Were ordered to STAND DOWN in Benghazi
2. Ignored those orders
3. Were relieved of duty for refusing orders to STAND DOWN

Adam Kokesh Is Tied To Obama At Last? An Analysis

By Old Sarge

 Folks, I wanted to make sure no one posted this already. This article came to me today, and it apparently is a few days old already, but I didn't see it posted or mentioned here.


An alert Web-surfer obtained a screen capture of the evidence that ties Adam Kokesh to Obama's re-election organization, Organizing for Action, which was originally known as Obama For America.

The article, a video clip (below:)

The screen capture reveals that Adam Kokesh's Facebook page, as late as May 8th 2013, had displayed the information that Kokesh, from March 2011 to present, was directly employed by Obama For America. The page has been since taken down, then reappeared in an altered form with the information purged. Kokesh himself was reported to have responded with derision, but made no effort to deny or disprove the posted data.


The person who created the video clip offers screen-captured evidence of Kokesh's Facebook page, displaying his affiliation with the Obama Administration via the "grassroots organization" Obama For America. OFA has recently reorganized as a 501(c) group with the new name Organizing for Action. They are in the vanguard leading the charge for gun control advocacy and the national restriction of gun ownership.

The poster also offers a CNN article outlining OFA's metamorphosis as supporting data. The CNN article provides details on OFA and its current status as a 501(c) non-for-profit group.

The poster of the video also mentions more information at the website for "Godlike Productions". A cursory scan of the website reveals it to be an amalgamation of what can be most charitably described as “tinfoil-hat conspiracy theories”.

The screen-capture evidence of Kokesh's ties to Obama are already at this writing, 12 days old. In the time since this story broke, several supporting articles and discussion threads have appeared on these sites offering corroborating stories, all of which are untested single-source reports.


The posts and discussions at Godlike Productions lend absolutely no direct credibility to the report. What does give credibility is the actual screen captures themselves, plus the apparent sheer volume of people who had eyes-on the original Facebook post. The visual evidence is compelling, and the data trail backing up the connection is highly plausible.

If this report receives further corroboration, then this has established a direct link between the government and the planned armed protest march on July 4th in Washington, DC. The evidence will be clear, concise and beyond reproach, that the armed protest was planned and facilitated by the Obama Administration, giving credibility to the suppositions of a false-flag event designed to create the conditions necessary for government usurpation of Constitutional rule of law.


Very Interesting: What the New Jackie Robinson Movie 42 Left Out
Stealing home, Ebbets Field 1948.


Purposely, I am sure.


The new film 42 tells the story of baseball great Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman), Brooklyn Dodgers co-owner Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford), and the breaking of the color barrier in America’s favorite pastime. It’s a good movie. Unfortunately, according to historian Jonathan Bean, a research fellow at the Independent Institute, it neglects key aspects of its protagonists’ motives and aspirations—namely, their religious and political commitments.

Robinson and Rickey were both devoted Methodists and GOP members who held that “capitalism, not government, held the key to equal opportunity,” Bean writes in USA Today. Their ideals played a crucial role in motivating them to persevere: there was not yet a civil rights movement for them to lean on for moral support. In fact, Robinson’s and Rickey’s achievements were the first home runs that inspired others to join the team crusading on behalf of individualism and against racial segregation.

“Remember,” Bean continues, “the year was 1947: the year before President Harry Truman ordered the military desegregated; seven years before the U.S. Supreme Court’s Brown v. Board of Education decision; eight years before Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Ala., public transit bus; 10 years before President Dwight Eisenhower utilized the 101st Airborne to enable the Little Rock Nine to attend Central High School; 16 years before Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his memorable I Have A Dream speech at the Lincoln Memorial during the 1963 March on Washington; and nearly two decades before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were adopted.”

Fast & Furious: DOJ Leaked Documents To Smear Whistleblower


According to a report published on Monday from the Office of the Inspector General concerning the improper disclosure of the U.S. Department of Justice information to a member of the media, U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennise Burke purposefully leaked a document with the intention to smear John Dodson, one of the Operation Fast and Furious whistleblowers.

The IG reports that “Burke’s conduct in disclosing the Dodson memorandum to be inappropriate for a Department employee and wholly unbefitting a U.S. Attorney.”

“We are referring to OPR our finding that Burke violated Department policy in disclosing the Dodson memorandum to a member of the media for a determination of whether Burke’s conduct violated the Rules of Professional Conduct for the state bars in which Burke is a member,” the IG wrote.

“We also concluded that Burke’s disclosure of the Dodson memorandum to Levine was likely motivated by a desire to undermine Dodson’s public criticisms of Operation Fast and Furious,” the report continued. “Although Burke denied to congressional investigators that he had any retaliatory motive for his actions, we found substantial evidence to the contrary.”

The report went on to state:

Winter of 1944 in the forests near Lenin Poland on the Russian-Polish border, now Belarus. Safe gun handling was not a priority.

The unlikliest partisan
In August 1942 the Polish town of Lenin's roughly 2000 Jewish residents were executed by Nazi forces, with the exception of about two dozen, including Faye Schulman. She was a photographer and was ordered to take and develop pictures of the mass execution.
She did so, including a second set in secret to keep herself. During a partisan raid she was able to escape into the forests and join the Molotava Brigade of Jews and escaped Russian POWs, where she served as nurse, photographer and fighter until the end of the war. She's lived in Canada since 1948.

Don't tell Chuck Schumer or Steve Israel, but you can bypass most of the problems with a printed gun by printing it to common PLA plastic and then using the PLA part as a pattern for a mold. Add a couple of wax sprues and risers and embed the whole megillah in a plaster-sand mixture. You then melt the PLA out, and cast metal in. One of the real applications for these printers is in printing casting patterns. 

What is perhaps most disturbing is the sheer effrontery of the administration. They seem unabashed and oblivious to the damage they are causing. They are telling lies that nobody can be expected to believe, almost as if the stranger hiding under the marital bed explains that he's looking for change he dropped there. He doesn't actually expect you to believe it. What he wants to know is whether you're man enough to call him on it.

 In the 1942 Wickard v. Filburn case, the Supreme Court ruled that laws regulating how much wheat a farmer could grow on his land apply even to grain grown for consumption at his own dinner table, because if he had not grown it, he would have had to buy it, thus "affecting commerce." Since then, incredibly, the perversity has only grown worse. The Supreme Court has ruled, at the federal government's behest, that since homegrown marijuana reduces demand for marijuana commerce—which Congress has already decreed must not be engaged in any way—interstate commerce is "affected," and Congress has a right to regulate it.

I want to draw your attention to the recent drop in corporate revenues at a number of corporations including Proctor and Gamble, Starbucks, AT&T, CB Richard Ellis, Safeway, American Express, IBM... If you look at the real economy, things are getting worse and worse. When even Wal-Mart reports that people are spending less (remember that corporate email that February sales were a "disaster"?) you KNOW things are bad. Folks, something awful is brewing in the economy. And yet, against this backdrop, stocks continue to rally hard. This bubble is worse than anything I've seen in my career, including the 2007 top.

Boston bombing - We already know that terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was shot up by Boston’s finest as he cowered in a boat without a weapon. Now we have confirmation that the cops shot up the wrong vehicle (but couldn’t shoot straight enough to hit the innocent citizens) the police officer wounded and nearly killed in the shootout with the Tsarnaev brothers wasn't shot by the poorly-equipped terrorists, but was instead blasted by other poorly-trained cops.

Got his excuse ready: Obama: Job Market May ‘Stall’ as Result of Budget Cuts

One falsehood after another.

President Barack Obama told a group of Democratic donors in Atlanta that the economy and job market could falter as a result of the automatic spending cuts that went into effect March 1.

"Because of some policies in Washington, like the sequester, growth may end up slowing,"Obama said at a luncheon for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. "We may see once again the job market stall."

The president was in Atlanta to give the commencement address at Morehouse College, and he told the donors that while he was energized by the spirit of the graduates "they are entering into a job market that is still challenging."

Won't Get Fooled Again?: The South and the Dialectic

We Southerners must understand today's GOP is merely the outcome of the classic dialectical process, in which two opposing ideas, thesis and antithesis, clash and then interact to produce an outcome called a synthesis. Conservatives, and especially us Southerners, have a genetic predisposition to defend the status quo, any status quo. So the cycle keeps repeating itself, with yesterday's synthesis becoming today's thesis. Conservatives, even in the act of "winning" (as they falsely believe) get co-opted into defending the last synthesis that's now the new status quo. The enemy takes up a new position even further to the Left as their new antithesis. The dialectical process spins again and produces a new increment of progress toward subjugation, fascism/progressivism, and Empire.

The regular election cycles represent the near-final triumph of the dialectic, which is another name for choosing the lesser of two evils. The dialectic has brought us to where there is no longer any real distinction between the candidates. The presumed differences have been blurred beyond recognition. The two parties no longer represent genuine alternatives but are simply rivals for power, two sides of the same (counterfeit) coin.

We who understand this, who see the game is rigged, and rigged to always favor the Empire, must opt out of it and seek another paradigm. That paradigm is an end to the vast, unitary Empire, which is collapsing of its own folly and corruption in any case. Why not get off the sinking ship and into the lifeboats? Why not Southern liberty? Why not Southern independence?

We must no longer let Those People fool us into playing this rigged game through their litany of threats and dangers. The greatest threat to our freedom and way of life is no longer external; it's our own government.

The ONE Mitigating Circumstance….....

Via avordvet


[This is a long post, on something I've been kicking around in my head for quite some time...  so please bear with me.  If nothing else, pull up the chair, pour a glass of wine, and I'll hopefully give you some useful food for thought.]

“There are no ‘mitigating circumstances’ when it comes to rebellion against a liege lord.” Yoshi Toranaga

“Unless you win.” John Blackthorne
–James Clavell, SHOGUN

It is an interesting thing, to listen to activists on the left and right sides of the political aisle, to denigrate each other, and it is especially entertaining if you identify with either party against “them.“  But the sad reality between the political parties is best summarized in the following:

“There is not a dime’s worth of difference between the Democrat and Republican Parties!” Alabama Governor George Wallace, candidate for President, 1968

An objective look at the track-record of the last 45 years (since that observation was made), will demonstrate that both parties aren’t interested in the welfare of the American people, but looking out for the welfare of their own pocketbooks.  The country is now run by two battling factions, the globalists and collectivists.

The globalists are interested in money and power.  They aim to accomplish the dream of past tyrants like Napoleon, Hitler, Lenin and Stalin: world domination.  Their fiat-currency schemes have crippled every economy around the world- save Iceland, ironically- and utterly destroyed the sovereignty of every single nation on the planet.  The financial whiz-kids of the American financial system, in cahoots with their British counterparts, have created an economic virus which has infected every corner of the globe.  The purpose of this virus is to bring the global economy to its knees at the same time, so that power can be consolidated, and a centralized bank for the entire world unveiled as the savior to all our financial problems.  But of course, a global bank will no more save us than the Federal Reserve has saved us, but that should be obvious.

The fly in the ointment of their globalist plans, has been the United States of America, which has been an economic powerhouse, due to manufacturing know-how, ingenuity, strong property rights and an economic system that fosters innovation.  As an added bonus, those same unruly Americans are armed to the teeth.  How does one bring down such a large stumbling-block to the well-laid globalist plans?

Corrupt their country, of course.

20 May 1861 -- "Second Declaration and Act of Independence for the Old State"

North Carolina War Between the States Sesquicentennial
“The Official Website of the North Carolina War Between the States Sesquicentennial Commission”

NC State Capitol, 1861, designed by Town and Davis in 1832-34.

20 may 1861: The Second and Crowning declaration and act of independence for the old state”

The legislature set May 13th as election day for delegates to a State convention that would convene at 11AM on May 20th, the very day when, in 1775, North Carolina revolutionaries had signed the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence and declared themselves a free and independent people. In precipitating war with North Carolina, the Lincoln regime had already begun blockading its coast---an act of war---even before the legislature had convened. This left little to discuss.

On May 20th, 122 delegates filed into the southern wing of the State Capitol to decide whether the Old North State would join 10 other Southern States already out of the old Union. With the galleries crammed with onlookers, the delegates argued the merits of leaving the union or remaining a member despite the threatening federal agent.

The April 17th secession of Virginia caused even staunch Unionists in North Carolina to accept the inevitability of a break with Washington, and debate ended at 6PM when by unanimous vote, the convention adopted an Ordinance of Secession, penned and presented by Burton Craige of Salisbury at the request of Governor Ellis.  Craige was a strong Southern rights advocate as was part of the 1860 Goldsboro convention of the Southern Rights party which called for North Carolina’s secession.

Though rejecting a lengthy document which enumerated the reasons and justifications for North Carolina’s sovereign action, including Lincoln’s unconstitutional and coercive actions against the States, Craige’s ordinance simply repealed the one in 1789 by which the State had voluntarily joined the second union.

Immediately after passage of the Ordinance, Major Graham Davee, private secretary to Governor Ellis, threw open a window on the west side of the building and related the news to Ellis Artillery Captain Stephen Dodson Ramseur. One hundred cadenced discharges marked the occasion of North Carolina reclaiming her independence; and this was followed by a ten-gun salute to the other independent States.  Within a short time it was announced that the convention had adopted the Constitution of the Confederate States, whereupon a twenty-gun salute was commenced.

May 20th was a much-revered date in North Carolina---Ada Amelia’s Diary entry of Tuesday, May 21st, 1861 mentions “the centenary celebration is near at hand. It is likely to be hereafter marked by a still more solemn and important event in the history of the State. It will be known, we trust, as the anniversary not only of the first, but of the second and crowning declaration and act of independence for the old State.”  

Acts of Oppression Made in the Name of Liberty


From the Russian Embassy at Washington, diplomat Baron Edouard de Stoeckl monitored the Lincoln administration and reported in detail to St. Petersburg.  He concluded as other observers did that Lincoln’s primary goal was to maintain a territorial union by force, with slavery intact and confined to existing geographic limits.
Bernhard Thuersam, Chairman
North Carolina War Between the States Sesquicentennial Commission
"The Official Website of the North Carolina WBTS Sesquicentennial"

Acts of Oppression Made in the Name of Liberty:

“If the reign of the demagogues continues for a long time, General Fremont is destined to play an important role. He is already the standard-bearer of the radical [Republican] party, and he will become the head of the party because of his superiority over the other leaders, among whom are only mediocre men and not a single leader of talent and energy.

Continuing his analysis of the “deplorable situation,” Stoeckl discussed in some detail the efforts of the radicals to gain control of affairs.

“General Fremont acted without authorization of [President Lincoln] and even contrary to his instructions, which forbid him to act in regard to the slave States of the west where Unionists are still fairly numerous.  So the President was greatly astonished to learn about the [emancipation] proclamation of General Fremont. He regarded is as an act of insubordination. 

For awhile there was consideration of dismissal [of Fremont], but after all [Lincoln] did nothing and did not even dare to reprimand him. The radicals, emboldened by this triumph, demand today that the edicts laid down by General Fremont in Missouri shall be applied everywhere. In other words, they demand that the government should convert the present struggle into a war of extermination. 

What the radical party fears most is a reaction which would bring its ruin. So it takes advantage of the hold it has on the administration in order to drive it to extreme measures. The government has forbidden postmasters to carry newspapers in the mails which advocate conciliation and compromise.  The result has been that the majority of newspapers which were opposed to war have had to suspend publication. 

In several towns the extremists have gone even further. They have stirred up the populace, which has smashed the plants of the moderate newspapers.  Conditions are such that mere denunciation by a general is sufficient for a person to be arrested and imprisoned. The act of habeas corpus and all the guarantees which the Americans have appeared to prize so much, have vanished and given way to martial law, which….is being enforced throughout the North.

We are not far from a reign of terror such as existed during the great French Revolution, and what makes the resemblance more striking is that all these acts of oppression are made in the name of liberty.”

Stoeckl wrote that the people of the North were being misled into believing that these drastic measures would hasten the peaceful restoration of the Union. But he did not believe the deception could persist:

“People will not be duped long by their political leaders.  The reaction will necessarily take place. But unfortunately it will come too late to repair the harm that the demagogues have done to the country. It will be necessary finally to revolutionize the political and administrative institutions…which have been weakened upon the first rock against which the nation has been hurled. In the North and in the South they will have to reconstruct the edifice which the founders of the Republic have had so much trouble in building….The present war is only the prelude of the political convulsions which this country will have to pass through.”   

(Lincoln and the Radicals, Albert A. Woldman, World Publishing Company, 1952, pp. 80-83)

Three Signs There’s a Cover-Up


You only need one clue:  Obama is in charge.

“Mistakes were made….I don’t recall” and other surefire clues. 

The late columnist William Safire once said that a good clue that someone in Washington was engaged in “an artful dodge,” i.e., a cover-up, was that they used the phrase “mistakes were made.” 

Safire defined it as a “passive-evasive way of acknowledging error while distancing the speaker from responsibility for it.” 

The phrase became infamous when both Richard Nixon and Ron Ziegler, his press secretary, deployed it to explain away Watergate without explaining who did what and when or whether any ill motive was involved.

Astonishingly, the Internal Revenue Service resurrected the Nixonian expression within hours of its clumsy revelation that it had targeted tea-party groups and other organizations with “patriot” or “9/12” in their names. “Mistakes were made initially,” the official IRS statement on May 10 read, implying that the mistakes ended after a short “initial” period. We now know that the scandal and cover-up unfolded over a three-year period, and the IRS publicly acknowledged them only after the 2012 election was safely past.

Here are some other clues that a Washington cover-up is going on.

National Scout Jamboree 2013 False Flag Insider Warning. Nevada Governor 2014 David Lory VanDerBeek

Via Old Sarge

 National Scout Jamboree 2013

 Worth the read.


Let me be clear, my objective in sharing prior knowledge of a mass casualty terror drill is to prevent criminal elements in the government from taking this drill live at the jamboree. I want the good people in government to feel confident in maintaining accountability over one another. As an Eagle scout myself, I want the scouts to have a great jamboree.


I have been on the phone with two reliable sources connected with military and a well known private investigative network. The military source decided to come forward because of the Boston bombing and the evidence that it was staged by the FBI.  The source provided information regarding a July FEMA mass casualty terror drill that has been kept a secret from the public. As I’ve previously said, it is not the announced FEMA/DHS/FBI terror drills that concern me, it is the unannounced drills that go live like Boston that concern me because real people can and do die. The source indicated that we need to scrutinize the National Scout Jamboree 2013 for a possible mass government staged false flag attack.

The leaders of the event are changing the location of the event for the first time in 30 years. Governor Earl Ray Tomblin of West Virginia has signed an executive order giving DHS, FEMA, and the national guard martial law police power over the event. “Thousands” of national guard soldiers will be there. Governor “Tomblin said he expects several thousand National Guard from West Virginia and across the country on the ground during the Jamboree “in case of an attack … or health crisis.”” There will be 50,000 scouts there with their families.

Ted Nugent: My Dear Misinformed Brother

Via avordvet

 Editor's Note: Conservative rocker Ted Nugent's brother penned an op-ed on Saturday in support of universal background checks for all gun purchases. Here is Ted's response:

Ted Nugent's Perspective:
Freedom of expression is so beautifully American. Making that our very First Amendment is surely all the proof one needs to know our founding fathers were revolutionary visionaries.

In this day and age of terminal apathy and soulless discontent, I adore anyone who is an activist and stands up for what he or she believes. That is exactly how our founders designed this experiment in self government.

My loving brother Jeffery is becoming one of those activists, and I salute the great man. Never one to shy away from controversy, my brother wades into it. We were raised right.

His recent opinion on his support for expanded background checks for firearms purchasers is dead wrong, however.

Passing expanded background checks would do nothing to curtail or suppress thugs or psychos from accessing weapons and committing mass murder, carjacking, the nightly shootouts in Chicago or a gangsta shooting at the Mother’s Day parade in New Orleans.

Paroled thugs or bug-eyed psychotics could not care less about any gun laws. The bold and ugly reality is that they will always gain access to a weapon. I believe at his core, my brother knows this.

North Carolina Fusion Center



I would like to repeat the last sentence from our North Carolina DHS Fusion Center:

Terrorists and criminals often display similar characteristics, such as being overly dedicated to a cause and willing to give their lives for it, and unaffected by the consequences of their actions.
Now let’s review the closing statement from the Declaration of Independence:
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
If these 56 men were alive today, DHS and North Carolina’s Fusion Center would classify them as terrorists. Unfortunately the current news regarding the abuse of power by the federal government against patriot groups, people supporting the Constitution and the Associated Press shows that people supporting freedom and freedom of the press are now considered terrorists. I want to thank Governor Perdue for using stimulus funds to build our fusion center in North Carolina. Click here to see how the North Carolina State Police Department interface with this global approach to a state response. I encourage readers outside of North Carolina to identify their fusion centers. Maybe these centers should become our focus for national protests instead of IRS offices.

Texas: 'The CSCOPE era is over'


Via comment by Stackz O Magz on Threat of subpoena produces Texas CSCOPE records

  A letter signed by all 20 members of the CSCOPE Board released this morning stated they will notify their 875 school district clients that all lesson plans will be removed from their website on August 31st, 2013 and that districts cannot use any lessons they currently have beyond that date.

The August 31st date corresponds to the notice clause in their contracts with their districts. The letter goes on to say that the Regional Service Centers will not produce lesson plans in the future. The 20 Service Centers will return to their original business plan of providing a management tool for teachers to stay on schedule regarding the teaching of the required TEKS. The official vote will take place at an already scheduled Board meeting on Friday, May 24th.

"I'm pleased that the CSCOPE Board has made the decision to get out of the lesson plan business. This is a positive development for students, parents, teachers, and for the Regional Service Centers,' said Senator Patrick.

"I want to thank the members of the Senate Education Committee for their months of work on this issue. I also want to thank Attorney General Abbott and his staff in providing valuable assistance in our review of CSCOPE," added Patrick.

Half of America wants Obama impeached

The faux stone columns from his Denver acceptance speech are crumbling, the fireworks have fizzled and the unadulterated adulation of Barack Obama is a sour feeling of disillusion, as a new poll reveals half of Americans wants him impeached, including a stunning one in four Democrats.

“It may be early in the process for members of Congress to start planning for impeachment of Barack Obama, but the American public is building a serious appetite for it,” said Fritz Wenzel, of Wenzel Strategies, which did the telephone poll Thursday. It has a margin of error of 4.36 percent.

“Half or nearly half of those surveyed said they believed Obama should be impeached for the trifecta of scandals now consuming Washington.”

Actually, on the issue of the Benghazi scandal, where four Americans were killed when in what may have been a politically motivated series of moves, a surging danger to Americans at the foreign service facility there was ignored until al-Qaida-linked terrorists attacked, 50.1 percent of Americans said Obama should be impeached. That included 27.6 percent of the responding Democrats.

WND's boss got audited, too!


 I have some experience with politically motivated tax audits.

I also have some experience with the tea-party movement.

I wrote the “Tea Party Manifesto,”which I am making available for a limited time for 99 cents because it is more relevant than ever. I was a headline speaker, along with Sarah Palin, at the first national tea-party convention, and you can see what I said there that I knew – and predicted – would lead to politically motivated audits of my tax returns. 

I predicted this would happen in a column in March 2010.

I wrote about it when it came to pass in November 2011.

I don’t claim the gift of prophecy.

I just know the nature of people like Barack Obama and those he places in positions of authority. I know this because I was just like him. I even had some of the same friends and acquaintances as a misguided youth – people like Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

But my experience with politically motivated tax audits goes back long before the Obama administration.

I was a prominent target of Bill Clinton’s reign of Internal Revenue Service hell on individuals and tax-exempt organizations. And I was the guy who broke the story about it – long before there was a WND. Back then, I had to get the help of the Wall Street Journal, which, to its credit, gave me commentary space to lay out the whole story and turned the sordid tale into an 11-part series of editorials.

IRS In Cincinnati: “Everything Comes From The Top; There Has To Be A Directive”


The fog of scandal hangs over a boxy, modernist, 10-story building that looks like a monument to paperwork. Shrubs and chain smokers flank its front entrance here on Main Street, in the heart of downtown. Every day, 2,000 employees go to work at various federal agencies in this John F. Kennedy-era structure, whose chief tenant is the Internal Revenue Service — which is having just about the worst week an agency can have.

Up on the fourth floor — with its gray linoleum, low ceilings and fluorescent lights, file carts heaped with manila envelopes, its keypad-coded doors labeled 4-022 (the file room) and 4-034 (the supply room) — the determinations unit of the IRS’s ­exempt-organizations office is at work.

People in this Cincinnati unit have been accused of using “inappropriate” and “politically sensitive” criteria to scrutinize conservative groups that applied for tax-exempt status.

People in the unit, in a purple state’s red-leaning nook, have singled out applicants whose names include the words “tea party” and “patriot.”

People in Cincinnati have made people in Washington hopping mad.

Taxes on some wealthy French top 100 pct of income

More than 8,000 French households' tax bills topped 100 percent of their income last year, the business newspaper Les Echos reported on Saturday, citing Finance Ministry data.  

The newspaper said that the exceptionally high level of taxation was due to a one-off levy last year on 2011 incomes for households with assets of more than 1.3 million euros ($1.67 million). 

President Francois Hollande's Socialist government imposed the tax surcharge last year, shortly after taking office, to offset the impact of a rebate scheme created by its conservative predecessor to cap an individual's overall taxation at 50 percent of income.

Rubio’s Deceptive Amnesty Ad

Via  Mike Scruggs 
 The blatant level of lying that has become common in pushing the Schumer-Rubio or "Gang-of-Eight" amnesty and immigration surge is truly frightening. Is America in such a moral tailspin that truth is now irrelevant?  Has America passed some new threshold on the road to self-destruction?

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) appears in a new television advertisement designed to promote the immigration amnesty bill currently being debated in Congress. The minute-long advertisement calls the proposal "conservative immigration reform" and attempts to make amnesty appealing to Republican voters. Partisan politics aside, the amnesty ad is misleading on a number of counts, outlined below.

The ad was produced by Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg who created the floundering, an advocacy group aimed at promoting amnesty. One of the group's offshoots is something called "Americans for a Conservative Direction", which is cited at the end of the ad. Here is the transcript:
RUBIO: Anyone who thinks what we have now in immigration is not a problem is fooling themselves. What we have in place today is de facto amnesty.
ANNOUNCER: Conservative leaders have a plan, the toughest immigration enforcement measures in the history of the United States.
RUBIO: They have to pass the background check, they have to be able to pay a registration fee, they have to pay a fine.
ANNOUNCER: Border security on steroids. Tough border triggers have no giveaways for law breakers.
RUBIO: "No federal benefits, no food stamps, no welfare, no Obamacare, they have to prove that they're gainfully employed.
ANNOUNCER: Bold, very conservative, a tough line on immigration.
RUBIO: It puts in place the toughest enforcement measures in the history of the United States, potentially in the world and it once and for all deals with the issue of those that are here illegally but does so in a way that's fair and compassionate but does not encourage people to come illegally in the future and isn't unfair to the people that have done it the right way.
ANNOUNCER: Stand with Marco Rubio to end de facto amnesty, support Conservative Immigration Reform.
Every claim made in the ad is deceptive, and each claim is addressed below.
