Escándalo irs también dirige grupos Hispanos conservadores … IRS scandal also targeted Hispanic Conservative groups.
The IRS also unjustly targeted Hispanic Conservative groups as well as reported at Fox News Latino. I’ll give this to the IRS, they certainly left no Conservative group unscathed with their corrupt and over-reaching Gestapo tactics leading up to the 2012 presidential election. They targeted Tea Party groups, Hispanic or otherwise, Tea party Patriots and any one who was thought to be a conservative who would oppose the current occupant of the White House.. This, while they fast-tracked liberal ones. But we are supposed to believe it was just a mistake and not premeditated, willful targeting of one segment of the population who opposed to current resident of the White House. Let me just say, No way Jose or better yet, mierda de Bull.
The Internal Revenue Service scandal involving the apparently unjustified targeting of Tea Party and other conservative groups has also hit home with the Hispanic community.
George Rodriguez, former president of the San Antonio Tea Party, said that when the organization applied for non-profit status, leaders were intimidated by IRS workers with excessive paperwork and meddling questions.
“They asked us all sorts of things that were out of the norm,” Rodriguez, now head of the conservative South Texas Alliance, told Fox News Latino. “We knew these questions were not the norm and we had our suspicions about them.”
Rodriguez said the group received a questionnaire from the IRS with “well over 50 questions,” including inquiries into who the group met with, where they held their meetings, who was in attendance and what the subject of their internal emails were.
“They should have been worried about the numbers, not who we were meeting with,” he added. “It was flat-out dirty politics.”
Rep. Michele Bachmann (MN-R) Responds to IRS Targeting Scandal … “The Power to Tax is the Power to Destroy”
Rep. Michele Bachmann asking the questions that now all of America want to know …
US Representative Michele Bachmann (MN-R) comments on the IRS targeting scandal where the Internal Revenue Service admitted to targeting Conservative and religious groups who opposed the Obama administration, while at the same time fast-tracked those non-profit organizations looking for tax exempt status who agreed with the Administration. Bauchmann makes and important point as the MSM has really only focused on one part of the story. Not only did the IRS prevent, stall and make Conservative organizations lives miserable to get tax exempt status in the run up to the 2012 political election, they also, and just as important, favored liberal and progressive organizations to get theirs in s timely manner.
Bachmann then when on to emphasize the fact that it will now be the IRS that enforces and polices Obamacare. Michele Bauchmann stated, ”It is important and reasonable to ask, could there potentially be political implications regarding healthcare, access to healthcare, denial of healthcare. Will that happen based upon a person’s political beliefs or their religiously held beliefs. These question would have been considered out of bounds a week ago. Today these questions are considered more than reasonable. And more than fair for the American people.”
Of course this was before that we found out that the woman who was in charge of the very department that was responsible for targeting Conservative and religious groups that the very IRS scandal is predicated upon is now the head of the IRS agency for Obamacare. Speaker of the House John Boehner stated that he was not interest in who resigns, “my question is about who’s going to jail over this scandal.” However, it appears in the Obama administration that being a good little soldier and effectively attacking Conservative and the Tea Party gets you a career advancement to the IRS division of Obamacare. Barack Obama said he would hold everyone accountable, Sarah Hall Ingram now heads the Obamacare implementation office. UNREAL. There is no way the internally this woman was not advanced because of the job she did in targeting a segment of the population who opposed President Barack Obama. How is this women still employed, if we are to take Obama at his word that those responsible would be held accountable and better yet, how is she not in jail?
“WE THE POEPLE” SHOULD BE OUTRAGED AND VERY, VERY AFRAID!!!
President Obama Waited 3 Days after IRS Apology to Address IRS Scandal of Targeting Conservatives and Uses the “IF” Word … “IF in fact IRS Personnel Engaged in the Kind of Practices that Have Been Reported on …
With President Barack Obama, it all depends on what “IF” is … When it Comes to an Enemies List.
Talk about late to the game. Finally after three days President Barack Obama addresses the scandal of the IRS targeting Conservative groups like the Tea Party or non-profit groups with the word “patriot” or groups that would teach others of the US Constitution. Barack Obama tried to absolve himself from the scandal by saying he just learned about this scandal on Friday when the report came out. Really Mr. President, you just learned about it? Next thing you are going to tell us that the Benghazi attack was a result of the video tape. Obama went on to say with a look of a child who got caught with his hand in the cookie jar, ”If in fact IRS personnel engaged in the kind of practice that have been reported on and were intentionally targeting Conservative groups then that’s outrageous. And there is no place for it. And they have to be held fully accountable”. IF THIS IS TRUE? IF? Has Obama been listening to what the IRS has been saying or is he just not that bright? The IRS has already admitted that they intentionally targeted Conservative non-profits, and those organizations that would educate as to the US Constitution on and those that would dare criticize the Obama government. Mr. Presidnt, why do you think the IRS apologized … um, for their intentionally targeting of Conservative groups. Also Mr. President, what the IRS did was not just outrageous, IT WAS ILLEGAL!!!
Hey America, this is the same IRS that is in charge of enforcing Barack Obama’s Obamacare. How’s that “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for ya?
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET BIG GOVERNMENT TYRANY AND LIBERTY DIES
On Monday, President Obama called the singling out of conservative groups by the Internal Revenue Service “outrageous”, adding: “I have no patience with it. I will not tolerate it.”
Obama’s strong condemnation of the growing scandal came amid similar denunciations from Democratic elected officials. Montana Sen. Max Baucus called it an “outrageous abuse of power and a breach of the public’s trust.” West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin described the IRS’ actions as “unacceptable and un-American.” You get the idea.
The question being asked in the political world today is whether the condemnations are too little, too late. As in, did the Obama Administration — and other Democrats in the House and Senate — miss their chance to claim some sort of high(ish) message ground by largely taking a pass on the story when it broke on Friday morning?
So why is Barack Obama so outraged? The IRS really didn’t do anything that his own reelect campaign did not do with the Tea Party, Conservative or those who believe in the US Constitution and put them all on an Obama enemies list. Wasn’t it this president who created a snitch website in 2012 for moonbats to report anyone who dare make comments about Obama and criticize him called Attack Watch?
Better than Obama’s dribble of trying to BS the American public that he never knew of any of this comes the quote of the day from Hot Air. Attorney Dan Backer, whose client TheTeaParty said, “And that’s when we knew it was gonna be a problem.”… “Nobody wipes their own ass in the government without a lawyer clearing it,” Backer said. “The idea that this is not at least a few layers up is nonsense.”
EXIT QUESTION: For Obama being the supposed smartest President ever, why does he always seem to play dumb when confronted with a scandal?
Why we love Dr. Ben Carson, he calls it like it is an is unafraid to do so.
Last night on Mark Levin’s radio show Dr. Ben Carson, the new voice of conservatism, discussed the “left-wing media’s” attempt to attack him and stop his speech on many issues and views on gay marriage and religion. As Carson has stated in the past, political correctness, threatens to destroy our nation. Carson states that “they” need to shut me up completely and the reason why the attacks against him are so vicious. There is nothing like a comment from a Black conservative for the LEFT to lose their minds. Dr. Carson told Levin that, in his experience, white liberals are the “most racist people there are.”
“They need to shut me up, they need to delegitimize me,” Carson told the radio host while explaining why he believes the media has scorned him for lumping homosexuality in with unsavory sexual acts like bestiality and pedophilia.
Levin added that the doctor has been attacked by “white liberals” because he is a black conservative, to which Carson replied: “They are the most racist people there are. Because they put you in a little category, a little box. You have to think this way. How could you dare come off the plantation?”
“I don’t have a particular agenda that I’m pushing,” he added. “So it would be particularly difficult for them to trip me up.”
As Weasel Zippers aptly states, Libs prove Ben Carson’s point by calling him a “token” or “uncle tom” in 3 … 2 … 1.
With all due respect to Bill O’Reilly … DR. BEN CARSON IS THE IS THE SECOND MOST FEARED MAN OF THE LEFT BEHIND RUSH AND MIGHT EVEN WELL BE #1!
What would Jesus say, certainly not these shameful, divisive comments …
President Barack Obama and the First family attended Easter service at St. John’s Episcopal Church in DC. ABC News reports that the sermon turned slightly political when Leon said there are some members of the religious right who are trying to pull people back rather than letting them move forward. SLIGHTLY POLITCAL? A pastor plays the race card and that is only slightly political for of all things an Easter service sermon?. One can imagine what is overly political. However, what a better religious-political message with Obama, the “Divider” in Chief in attendance.
The captains of the religious right are always calling us back, back, back. For blacks to be back in the back of the bus, for women to be back in the kitchen, for gays to be in the closet and for immigrants to be on their side of the border,” Leon said. “What you and I understand is that when Jesus says you can’t hang onto me, he says you know it’s not about the past, it’s not about the before, it’s not about the way things were but about the way things can be in the now.”
Hmm, some words seem to be missing, but what else would one expect from the liberal MSM who thinks playing the race card. More from the Right Scoop as to what Barack Obama and his family listened to as they sat in the pews on Easter Sunday. How very sad that this be the message of hope, resurrection and rebirth in an Easter service.
As Jesus told Mary not to hold on to the past, “You cannot go back.”
“It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back … for blacks to be back in the back of the bus … for women to be back in the kitchen … for immigrants to be back on their side of the border.”
“The message of Easter is about the power of love over loveless power.”
Of course Barack Obama just sat attentively in his Sunday best listening to this divisive bullsh*t and thought nothing of it. But what else would we expect from a man who attended the church of Reverend Wright for 20 years and his racist, anti-American rants and thought nothing of that ether.
A note to this misguided pastor and to all else who want to blame others for their plight in life or just wish to blame others just to cause division, take a real good look who is holding you back, put you back on the plantation or at the back of the bus. Who is making you dependent on the government rather than those who want you to be all that you can be? Who is calling for blacks to go to the back of the bus or that woman have to be in the kitchen? Seriously, who? As for immigrants to stay on their side of the border, I think many are calling for the laws of the United States to be enforced and “ILLEGALS” to be dealt with accordingly. I wonder what Jesus would say when the Church becomes a propaganda tool of a the government?
Mavericky Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) apologized for his ‘wacko birds’ comment that he made toward Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz for their outspoken brand of politicking on the Hill. The long time Arizona senator and failed GOP Presidential candidate took exception to the fact that he has been passed by the young Turks. What McCain might finally be realizing is that Paul and Cruz represent a breath of fresh air for the GOP Senate and what the GOP base wants to embrace, not Democrat light. During CPAC 2013, Rand Paul took the opportunity to slap back at McCain and said “the GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered.” Whether McCain’s apology was sincere, who knows. However, one thing is for certain … the balance of power is being to shift in the GOP Senate and is moving away from the failed establishment senators and more toward the new brand of Republican Senators like Rand Paul (KY), Ted Cruz (TX), Marco Rubio (FL), Jeff Flake (AZ) and Pat Tommey (PA).
Sen. John McCain is apologizing for calling Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz “wacko birds” and says he respects what his Senate colleagues stand for.
“[In] an interview I said that Sen. Cruz and Sen. Paul were ‘wacko birds.’ That was inappropriate and I apologize to them for saying that, and I respect them both. I respect what they stand for and what they believe in. They both made an impact out here in the United States Senate,” McCain (R-Ariz.) said on Fox News on Friday.
McCain at some point best realize that his days are behind him and that he is on the wrong side of the future of the Republican party. Of he wants to make such criticisms he might as well pull an Arlen Specter or Charlie Crist and switch parties.
Two Young GOP Superstars Finish One, Two … Rand Paul wins CPAC 2013 Straw Poll with 25%, Marco Rubio Places Second at 23%
THIS TIME THE CPAC STRAW POLL JUST MIGHT HAVE CORRECTLY PICKED THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES …
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul won the CPAC 2013 straw poll with 25% of the vote. Florida Senator Marco Rubio finished a close second at 23%. Nearly 3,000 votes were cast by attendees at the three day conference held at a hotel just outside of Washington, DC in which the straw poll is considered one way to gauge where the conservative base stands on potential Republican nominees. Rand Paul had earlier wowed the crowd at CPAC.
Marco Rubio, lft. – Rand Paul, rt.
Although it is far too premature to determine a front runner for the GOP for the 2016 Presidential election, what is apparent is that the two young Turk superstars of the Republican party were at the forefront of this straw poll and have conservatives support. Sen. Rand Paul became a conservative hero with his recent 13 hour filibuster where he took Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama head on with the “Drone” issue. Rand Paul make Holder and Obama blink. Although a CPAC straw poll does not determine an eventual GOP presidential nominee, what makes this much, much different is that the two straw poll winners, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio, are both cross-over candidates which the LEFT and the MSM are going to have a hard time calling right-wing extremists.
Sen. Rand Paul won the 2013 Washington Times-CPAC presidential preference straw poll Saturday, and Sen. Marco Rubio was a close second, easily outdistancing the rest of the field and signaling the rise of a new generation of conservative leaders who will take the Republican Party into the 2016 election.
Mr. Paul won 25 percent of the vote, and Mr. Rubio collected 23 percent. Former Sen. Rick Santorum was third with just 8 percent, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — who was not invited to speak at the three-day Conservative Political Action Conference — was next with 7 percent, and Rep. Paul D. Ryan, the GOP’s vice presidential nominee last year, was fifth with 6 percent
The full poll results can be found here:
Paul — 25
Rubio – 23
Santorum – 8
Christie – 7
Paul Ryan – 6
Scott Walker – 5
Ben Carson – 4
Ted Cruz – 4
Bobby Jindal – 3
Sarah Palin – 3
Other – 14
Undecided – 1
A note to the 8% who voted for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was not invited to speak at the three-day Conservative Political Action Conference, he is no conservative and the GOP does not need another RINO running for office in the line of other failed GOP candidates like John McCain and Mitt Romney. The GOP needs to find what it stands for and a messenger to the people who can relay that message to We the People.
CPAC 2013: Dr. Benjamin Carson Says Barack Obama Trying to ‘Destroy the Country’ … He is Leaving Medicine and Pursuing other Opportunities, which could include Politics, Like the White House
LISTEN TO DR. BEN CARSON’S SPEECH IN THE VIDEO BELOW AND YOU WILL COME TO UNDERSTAND WHY HE NEEDS TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT … NEVER HAS COMMON SENSE BEEN MORE UNDERSTANDABLE …
A STAR IS BORN, MEET THE DEMOCRATS GREATEST THREAT … WILL DR. BEN CARSON RUN FOR PRESIDENT IN 2016?
Dr. Benjamin Carson, the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, who became a conservative superstar and house hold name after his remarks at last month’s National Prayer Breakfast with Obama less than five feet away stated at the 2013 CPAC event eluded that President Barack Obama was trying to “destroy the Country”. Ya think? Although he did not come out and name Obama by name, Carson presented a hypothetical what if one in the White House was trying to destroy the nation? Carson stated that if it were him, he would create division among the people, pitting people against each other. He would then create a culture of ridicule for basic morality. Then he would undermine the financial stability of the country and drive it so far into debt and weaken and destroy the moral of the military. At the conclusion of his hypothetical, Carson suggested that Obama is, in fact, the president doing nearly everything imaginable to destroy the country. Carson opined, “It appears coincidentally that those are the very things that are happening right now.”
As reports by CNN, Dr. Ben Carson said Saturday at CPAC that he was leaving medicine and pursuing other opportunities, which could include politics. Carson is a huge threat to liberals and Democrats as he disproves the Left’s lie that there is no color in the GOP. Of course the MSM will be quick to call him an Uncle Tom and dismiss Carson. During his speech at CPAC Carson stated, “When did we reach a point where you had to have a certain philosophy because of your skin color,” asked Carson, who is black. As stated at Policymic, during Carson’s speech at CPAC today he made several veiled reference to running for political office, and one not so veiled reference: “Say you magically put me in the White House.” His comments were met with a sanding ovation. Yes, he is a threat indeed to Obama and Democrats.
“There are so many more things that can be done,” Carson said, pointing to his educational foundation Carson’s Scholars.
Asked if he would consider entering politics, Carson said, “Once we get that taken care of, who knows.”
During his speech, Carson further fueled speculation that he’ll run for elected office, asking hypothetically, “What if you magically put me in the White House?”
The crowd roared.
This is a must see VIDEO of Dr. Benjamin Carson at CPAC 2013 …
Check out the comments at 8:18 when Carson says “What if you magically put me in the White House?” and the roar of the crowd.
Dr. Benjamin Carson, the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital who garnered national headlines for his pointed remarks at last month’s National Prayer Breakfast, says that President Obama and his political allies are trying to “destroy the country.”
“Let’s say somebody were [in the White House] and they wanted to destroy this nation,” Carson postulated in remarks at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “I would create division among the people, encourage a culture of ridicule for basic morality and the principles that made and sustained the country, undermine the financial stability of the nation, and weaken and destroy the military. It appears coincidentally that those are the very things that are happening right now.”
Carson, who is 62, said that the blame for the nation’s current state of affairs does not lie with “any one particular person.” His barbs, though, were clearly aimed at President Obama.
EXIT QUESTION: Don’t imagine if Dr. Ben Carson was in the White House … What if he was in the White House? This is the type of individual that needs to be there. Not because of his color, but because of his vision, common sense and brains.
UPDATE I: One of the best lines of the speech is when Carson was talking about some of the criticism he receives … He’s a neurosurgeon, so how could he know anything about economics? Carson’s response, “It’s not brain surgery”. Carson then opined that even as a lowly brain surgeon he knows that having the highest corporate tax rates in the world, then of course corporations are going to go elsewhere. Corporations are not in the business to be social welfare organizations. They are there to make money and a wise government knows how to use that to their advantage.
Why we love Rand Paul and why it’s about time we start seriously start considering him for the GOP Presidential candidate for 2016 …
Fresh off his 13 hour Senate filibuster, Kentucky Conservative Senator Rand Paul lit up the room at CPAC as he reminded the Republican party about conservatism and the principles on which the GOP was founded upon. Much to the CPAC crowds approval, Rand Paul stated that “the GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered.” A less than vale slap back at John McCain and the establishment Republicans that have all but destroyed and watered down the Republican party. It is a fight for the soul of the Republican party and it is time the fossils of old, John McCain, need to go away and make way for the new, principled party GOP.
“The GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered,” Mr. Paul said. “The new GOP, the GOP that will win again, will need to embrace liberty in both the economic and personal sphere. If we are going to have a Republican Party that can win, liberty needs to be the backbone of the GOP.”
Like the Republican Party as a whole, the 8,000 conservative activists gathered at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, just outside the Capitol Beltway in Maryland, are debating which direction the GOP should go after a second consecutive presidential defeat.
Rand Paul Calls the GOP Like it Is … “the GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered.”
The GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered. I don’t think we need to name any names, do we? Our party is encumbered by an inconsistent approach to freedom. The new GOP will need to embrace liberty in both the economic and the personal sphere. If we’re going to have a Republican party that can win, liberty needs to be the backbone of the GOP. We must have a message that is broad, our vision must be broad, and that vision must be based on freedom.
Any body who references liberty as a core principle of the party gets my attention.
GOP light and a gutless party has delivered us John McCain and Mitt Romney. Enough said. How Romney could have lost to an incumbent president with an economy in shambles and an unpopular Obamacare is head scratching to say the least. Is it any wonder why Romney is considered a B-lister at this year’s CPAC? What, does the MSM think he is a superstar for the GOP? Sorry, those honors are given to Ted Cruz. Marco Rubio and Rand Paul.
US Weekly Reports Elisabeth Hasselbeck Booted From ‘The View’ for Being ‘Too Extreme and Right-wing’
THE LIBERAL VIEW ….
As reported by US Weekly, Elisabeth Hasselbeck will not be returning next season for ‘The View’ because she is too extreme and ring-wing. Her departure would follow in the footsteps of fellow cohost Joy Behar, who announced earlier this week that she would not be returning after 16 years. So was Behar’s leaving because she was too extreme and left-wing? However, a representative for the show told US Weekly in a statement that,”Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a valued member of The View and has a long term contract.” Is Hasselbeck really leaving the show because she dare have a conservative slant? Oh, and how dare she be attractive and conservative. One would thing that a view was one of all perspectives. Not in the liberal, corrupt media complex. The liberal view can be the only one. In the end what would one expect from a bunch of female libs who stay at home and watch ‘The View”. In any event, it’s not like this will affect my TV viewing habits. However, what is sad is that ‘The View’ and their viewer wearing liberal blinder only want to watch one opinion with no diversity of thought.
According to the source, the show’s resident conservative voice is being ousted after market research revealed that she isn’t popular with TV audiences.
“The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right wing,” the insider tells Us. “People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed.”
When reached for comment, a rep for the show told Us in a statement: “Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a valued member of The View and has a long term contract.”
Hasselbeck, 35, joined the cast of the daytime talk show in November 2003 after guest-hosting the show following Lisa Ling’s departure in 2002.
Maybe they can replace Elisabeth Hasselbeck with Michelle Malkin. One can dare to dream. Now that would be must see TV.
