Will no one rid me of this turbulent group?
In June of 1170, the Archbishop of York and the Bishops of London and Salisbury crowned Henry II of England. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Beckett, should have had the privilege, but he and King Henry had been warring over the powers of clergy in England. Beckett proceeded to excommunicate the bishops and other opponents of the Catholic Church in England. According to tradition, Henry | Read More »
EXCLUSIVE: Source Says KMOV Forced Reporter’s Hand In IRS Scandal
I first told you about St. Louis reporter Larry Conners’s claim that the IRS “hammered” him after his fair, but hard-hitting interview with President Obama last year. Tonight Conners read a statement on air distancing himself from his Facebook post. “Those were my personal views, not those of KMOV TV, second to be fair, I should disclose that my issues with the IRS preceded that | Read More »
Billy Graham Evangelistic Assn. Targeted by IRS
The man known as America’s pastor was among those targeted by the Internal Revenue Service after the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association ran newspaper advertisements promoting traditional marriage and biblical values. “I am bringing this to your attention because I believe that someone in the Administration was targeting and attempting to intimidate us,” wrote Franklin Graham in a letter to President Obama. “This is morally wrong | Read More »
The Obama Administration, The IRS and The Praetorian Guards.
The funny thing is that my participation in Conservative circles has allowed me to know a statistically large number of people who recently have been audited. The ones who haven’t often know someone who has. I mean, unlike the Kenyawn Birf Surtifikate, or Tom Fife’s “business trip” in Moscow, I’m hearing from people who are solid, real-life Conservatives who have actually gotten that metaphorical midnight knock on the door. I’m not a guy who believes the Gubbermint LIHOPed 9/11. Yet, it’s amazing how this one, peculiar segment of the population would have so much time and energy invested in them by the IRS. Maybe we should all feel honored. Not everyone receives so much care and attention from the Post-modern Amerikan State.

The war continues and Barack Obama’s side just gave the GOP some major new weapons to use against his destructive policies. How many hundreds of millions of dollars were wasted by Republican donors in 2012 to prop up Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum or Mitt Romney? How | Read More »
PPP on the Brown-Warren Senate Race: A Polling Post-Mortem
Polls are back in the news, with the release of four public polls and an internal Gabriel Gomez campaign poll in the June 25 Massachusetts special Senate election to replace John Kerry. 3 of the 4 public polls show Ed Markey with a distinct but still surmountable lead, an average of 6 points; the fourth shows him up by 17 and looks like an outlier, | Read More »
The Big Amnesty/ Social Security Lie
It looks like we’ve discovered the panacea for all of our economic and social ills. We’ve found the solution to the entitlement crisis as well. We’re going to find the poorest countries in the world and import as many of their people as possible within a short period of time. That way we will have millions of people paying into Social Security, purveying the “trust | Read More »
Eating Their Own: Teamsters Acting Like ‘Parasite’ Stealing Other Unions’ Members
Wars between rival unions, though infrequent, go back more than a century. Now, as union membership continues its decades-long decline, union efforts to pilfer members from other unions seem to be making a comeback.
At the head of the pack is the infamous International Brotherhood of Teamsters. With efforts underway to lure workers at both US Airways and American Airlines away from their existing unions, the Teamsters are, once again, creating enemies in the union movement.

Happy Mother’s Day
An ode to my wife: “I went to my girlfriend’s apartment. She opened the door and the smell of bacon came pouring out. There were two pounds of bacon in her oven. At the time, I did not know you could cook bacon en masse in the oven. Likewise, I had no idea what any one person needed two pounds of bacon for.’Oh I don’t,’ | Read More »

MSM Reports IRS Targeting Conservative Americans As Scoop
I’m glad that the heritage media is finally reporting on what new media has covered for over a year now: that the IRS has been systematically targeting Americans based on their political ideology. The Internal Revenue Service inappropriately flagged conservative political groups for additional reviews during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status, a top IRS official said Friday.

Senate Judiciary Committee Seals the Fate of the Gang Immigration Bill
Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee began its markup of the gang of 8 immigration deform bill (s.744). The striking thing about the markup is that any casual observer would think we were living in 1965 or 1986, when there was either relatively low legal immigration or no failed amnesty to look back upon. To most of the senators sitting around the table, the border is more secure than ever (despite the sharp rise in crossings), our record levels of immigration don’t exist, and there is no reason to implement the enforcement before the legalization.
