#IRS revokes tax-free status of conservative group

Posted by: Phineas on April 21, 2014 at 5:43 pm » 3 Comments

**Posted by Phineas I have to admit, I have no idea if the Patrick Henry Center really did break the rules and thus earned the revocation of its 501(c)(3) status, but you’d think the IRS would be extra-super-duper reluctant to do this, given the revelations over the deliberate targeting of conservative groups: The Internal Revenue […]

LOL. In the midst of all the national coverage my fair city was receiving last night on the Charlotte Democrat Mayor scandal, there was this (via multiple Twitter sources, including @WilsonShow): Now, Gov. McCrory (R) used to be Charlotte Mayor, but that was several years ago. We’ve had two elected Democrat Mayors since then – […]

#Benghazi: Obama lied in his Super Bowl Interview

Posted by: Phineas on February 3, 2014 at 3:43 pm » 6 Comments

**Posted by Phineas I didn’t watch the Super Bowl (1), so I not only missed that, but Bill O’Reilly’s pre-game interview with President Obama. Given that we’re talking about two of my least favorite people in public life, I don’t think I missed much skipping this, either. But then I came across a Washington Examiner […]

**Posted by Phineas Wait, didn’t we just have a national stink over the IRS harassing conservative and libertarian groups for their political beliefs? Yet now, not at all hiding his lack of understanding of or even his disdain for the principles that underlie our political system, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), in a speech at the […]

**Posted by Phineas When Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered by Mexican drug smugglers near Arizona’s border with Mexico in late 2010, two firearms were recovered that, while traceable to weapons bought through the felony-stupid Operation Fast and Furious, were unable to be identified as the murder weapon. (Neither were they wholly ruled out.) […]

**Posted by Phineas I know it will come to a shock to you –well, at least that portion of you that has been hiding under a rock for the last five years– but the man we chose twice to head our government lied through his teeth about taking steps to ensure our facilities in Libya […]

 

#Benghazi: Obama knew that night that it was a terrorist strike

**Posted by Phineas And not some lousy video made by a two-bit crook. Minutes after the American consulate in Benghazi came under assault on Sept. 11, 2012, the nation’s top civilian and uniformed defense officials — headed for a previously scheduled Oval Office session with President Obama — were informed that the event was a […]

**Posted by Phineas This isn’t the fox guarding the henhouse. This is the fox walking into the henhouse with a chainsaw and locking the door behind him. From The Washington Times: The Justice Department selected an avowed political supporter of President Obama to lead the criminal probe into the IRS targeting of tea party groups, […]
