On The IRS Protests Tomorrow

    I get that there are some of my conservative brethren don’t agree that the tea party should protest tomorrow. They’re afraid that it will disrupt a winning narrative: the IRS targeting a vast array of American citizens based on political beliefs and religion. They’re afraid that the sight of tea partiers shouting slogans and waving Gadsden flags at IRS offices will provide the media squirrel the left needs | Read More »

    Will big government be felled by big government overreach, arrogance and overconfidence?

    One of my favorite shows is a program called “Person of Interest’ on CBS. The story revolves around a government computer that knows when someone somewhere is in danger and passes that information along to a team of ex government types who go on to save that particular Person of Interest. The show’s device is that the machine can tap into virtually every piece of | Read More »

    The tax reform moment

    Rupert Murdoch took some heat for observing on Twitter, “Growing IRS scandal makes perfect case for flat tax and abolition all deductions.  Nothing could be fairer and abuse free.” Several responses took Murdoch to task because the abusive treatment of certain groups applying for tax-exempt status, based on their politics, doesn’t have any direct relationship with the progressive income tax system, or plans to replace it. | Read More »

    Too Big To Jail

                    The late, great Lewis Grizzard attended the University of Georgia with a man named “Joe,” where they developed a lifelong friendship.  Joe grew up poor in rural Southwest Georgia.  He was only a boy when he found the body of his dead father who had taken his own life with the family shotgun.  Joe became the man | Read More »

    Even an IRS of Billy Grahams would be Tyrannical

    It is no surprise that the government agency responsible for taxing the rich and funding the liberal management of our lives for the collective, would be a bastion of the  most partisan members of the Democratic Party willing to wield the hammer that is government power for the various factions of the gangster-like mob it has become. Current tax law, or what passes for “law”, | Read More »

    Democrat Senator Baucus: More to come on IRS-gate

    One would think that when a Democratic Senator speaks out about IRS-gate, he’d be covering his own tail. Max Baucus, however, has a newfound reputation for calling a spade a spade, so when he says there’s more and possibly worse revelations about the IRS coming, I tend to sit up and listen. Paul Bedard writes in the Washington Times: Senior Democratic Sen. Max Baucus, who | Read More »

    Why You Should Support Rep. Price’s IRS Bill

    Rep. Tom Price came on my program today to discuss his “Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act.” Why is this important? Because the regulating entity of Obamacare is in trouble for discriminating against, and persecuting, conservatives. Even more unbelievable: The Internal Revenue Service official in charge of the tax-exempt organizations at the time when the unit targeted tea party groups now runs the | Read More »

    The legitimacy of elections

    The worst possible outcome of the IRS scandal would see it growing large enough to call the legitimacy of the 2012 election into question. Some people reading this might think it’s already reached that point.  Others would say it could never reach that point.  There is a case to be made that the American system would resist such an outcome, in a much broader sense than merely | Read More »

    IRS targeted the Leadership Institute

    I worked at the Leadership Institute in Arlington for a little more than four years; it was my first job out of college and one of the most important times of my career. I learned a tremendous amount about the conservative movement, the nature of coalitions, and how political technology was philosophically neutral. I also learned about character and left with a hero: Morton Blackwell. | Read More »

    Don’t Make it About Barack Obama

    I have to agree with Ben Domenech from the Transom this morning. Republicans will lose if they try to make the IRS scandal about Barack Obama. We are not going to convince a majority of Americans who voted for him that they were wrong. We spent the last four years trying that.As Domenech noted this morning:Here’s the hard thing Republicans have to do if they | Read More »

    What will Seal the Deal against Common Core Standards in GA?

    On the Wednesday after Mother’s Day, Governor Nathan Deal (GA-R) seemed to offer mothers, caregivers, and parents of students a belated gift. Deal signed an executive orders statement on Georgia education and Common Core. The Governor appeared to affirm state and local BoE controls over Georgia school standards and curriculum. His May 15th executive order wording seemed a slap down of the notion that his | Read More »
