Read More and Comment: What Jeb Bush Just Told Republicans To Do Shows How Much He Agrees With Obama and Reid]]>
At a political event in New Hampshire, the man many people think may be the Republican nominee for president just said GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill should do something that many in the party, especially conservatives, are firmly against. The former Florida governor told the town hall-style forum that the Republican-controlled Senate should go ahead and confirm President Obama’s choice for the country’s next attorney general, Loretta Lynch.

Bush’s advice to Republican senators who stand opposed to Lynch’s becoming the nation’s top law enforcement officer puts him squarely at odds with a number of GOP senators, including the two who have announced their run for the White House — Kentucky’s Rand Paul and Florida’s Marco Rubio.

The New York Times reports that Bush told the Thursday night gathering in Concord, N.H., that when it comes to such nominations, “there should be some deference to the executive.”

“’I think presidents have the right to pick their team,’ Mr. Bush said, in response to a questioner who asked where he stood on the nomination of Ms. Lynch, now the United States attorney for the Eastern District of New York.”

However, at the same time that he said President Obama should be granted his choice for attorney general, Bush launched into a stinging criticism of the current head of the Justice Department, Eric Holder. It would not be a stretch to observe that, in addition to being at odds with widespread GOP sentiment about Loretta Lynch,  Bush’s position seems to be at odds with itself. He suggests that the president’s nomination should be okayed, even if that results in the installation of a powerful department head with whom he strongly disagrees.

Breitbart News notes that Jeb’s call for Lynch’s confirmation aligns him with Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and other Democrats in the upper chamber. Senate Republicans who fiercely oppose the president’s pick have cited their objections to Lynch’s expressed support for Obama’s executive amnesty that would grant millions of illegal immigrants certain rights and privileges traditionally enjoyed by U.S. citizens.

Essentially then, because of Loretta Lynch’s endorsement of Obama’s executive action on amnesty, Jeb Bush is aligning himself with the president’s position on the highly controversial policy that angers many conservatives.

Breitbart also points out that Bush’s contrary position on the Lynch nomination comes at a time when polling is moving against him.

“Bush’s move comes as he’s lost his frontrunner status–despite all the money he’s raking in–in the 2016 GOP primary to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who opposes Lynch’s nomination and now leads Bush in polls in all three early primary states.”

And just today, Friday, Politico reports on a new poll of 400 registered Republican voters in Florida who put Rubio ahead of his former political mentor in the Sunshine State.

“Rubio garnered 31 percent support from Republicans and essentially tied Bush’s 30 percent, according to a Mason-Dixon Polling & Research survey conducted Tuesday through Thursday and shared exclusively with POLITICO.”

Thee is still no date announced for the full Senate’s consideration of the nomination of Loretta Lynch, who, if confirmed, would be the country’s first female African American to become attorney general.

Read More and Comment: Armed Neighbor Steps In To Save Alabama Rape Victim]]>
According to recent WBRC reports, a teenage suspect is dead after he and two accomplices broke into a Gadsden, Ala., residence, at which point he raped a female homeowner at gunpoint.

The trio reportedly forced their way into the home early Monday morning; and as the 17-year-old subject physically assaulted the resident, the two other individuals searched for valuables and ultimately left without him. Alone with his victim, records indicate the boy proceeded to pistol whip the woman and demand money from her.

Police report the victim told her attacker that a neighbor had her money, prompting him to take her next door in hopes of absconding with some cash. Instead, the neighbor noticed the unexpected visitors, phoned authorities, and retrieved his firearm.

The suspect interrupted him, demanding he hang up the phone and shooting two warning shots before training his gun on his second victim. Undeterred, the neighbor raised his weapon and fired once, fatally striking the suspect in his chest. After questioning the shooter, he was released; however, charges could still be filed against him should the district attorney’s office determine any are warranted.

In any case, his quick action possibly saved the female victim’s life. Although injured, reports show she was transported to a local hospital for treatment. At least one local contacted by WBRC agreed the vigilant resident did the right thing in protecting his life and the life of his neighbor.

“It’s a blessing the guy was at home where the lady could get his attention,” Gene Handy said, “and maybe this will get our neighbors to look out and help each other.”

Read More and Comment: Watch: Megyn Kelly Obliterates College Administrator Who Said ‘Sorry’ For Serving Mexican Food At ‘Intergalactic Night’]]>
Fox News host Megyn Kelly slammed a college administrator who apologized for her school’s “mistake in judgement” by serving Mexican food during a monthly school event.

On The Kelly File Thursday, Fox and Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade appeared with Kelly to discuss several subjects, including Stevenson College’s regret over serving Mexican fare during its ‘Intergalactic Night,’ a space-alien themed evening. The college is located in Santa Cruz, Calif.

Kilmeade explained the event takes place once a month with a different theme. “Some Hispanic students became vocal and they protested this,” Kilmeade explained, reading some of the apology letter that can be found in full here.

“I am writing today to apologize for a mistake in judgement that took place in the planning of last night’s College Night,” wrote Carolyn Golz in her letter to members of the student body. “The theme was ‘Intergalactic”’and the decor included robots and space ships with aliens.”

Unfortunately, the program planners made a poor decision when choosing to serve a Mexican food buffet during a program that included spaceships and ‘aliens,’ failing to take into account how these choices might be perceived by others.

We would never want to make a connection between individuals of Latino heritage or undocumented students and ‘aliens’ and I am so sorry that our College Night appeared to do exactly that.

As a result of this incident, I will require cultural competence training for Programs staff, in addition to implementing mechanisms for future program planning that will ensure college programs are culturally sensitive and inclusive.

“As an ally for students of color and, in particular, undocumented students, I am committed to ensuring that student life staff receive the training necessary to make sure that this type of incident does not happen again at Stevenson,” Golz continued in the letter.

But Kelly had harsh words for Golz. “You can’t make this up…with all due respect, you are a moron,” asserted Kelly. “I’m sorry but Carolyn needs some help,” Kelly added after Kilmeade lauded Stevenson’s communications department for getting back to him in an efficient manner for the story.

“For French night… they knew what to do; for Harry Potter night, they served potatoes. I’m not really sure why,” Kilmeade said.

Read More and Comment: ‘I Can’t Enforce That Law:’ Oregon Sheriff Promises To Ignore New Gun Control Measure]]>
In an ostensible effort to reduce gun violence, Oregon lawmakers are advancing a bill that many Second Amendment advocates feel is not only inconsequential but places an additional burden on those wishing to purchase a firearm. One sheriff in the state agrees with those critics, coming out this week with an impassioned denunciation of efforts to mandate criminal background checks when guns are sold between two private citizens.

Eleven other states have already approved similar measures, though Josephine County Sheriff Dave Daniel contended that attempting to implement such a regulation would be an exercise in futility.

“I can’t enforce that law,” he declared, “so therefore it won’t be enforced.”

Aside from that concern, Daniel explained that he has bigger concerns than chasing down individuals engaging in a private sale.

“I have felonies going on daily in Josephine County,” he continued. “That’s my priorities.”

While background checks are already mandated prior to transactions at federally licensed arms dealers, many gun rights activists oppose extending those requirements to include all private sales. Earlier this week, presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz explained why he is against the idea.

He described “two guys in a duck blind selling their shotgun one to the other,” noting that “the federal government doesn’t have any business there; and if you ask the American people that, they don’t want the federal government getting in between private, consensual sales between individual citizens.”

Reader reaction to a BizPac Review article about the proposed Oregon law revealed many Americans agree with both Daniel and Cruz.

“Very few criminals buy weapons at gun stores,” one reader wrote. “The law is silly.”

Read More and Comment: You Won’t Believe What Happened When This Porn Star Decided To Take A Bible To Her Shoot]]>
Brittni Ruiz was 14-years-old when she started stripping at a bar in Tijuana, Mexico. A few years later, the owners of porn studio Astrux offered her a job. “The next day, they put me in hair and makeup,” she remembers. “They had me do a scene. They were telling me how much money I’d make… I didn’t even think about the consequences.”

She quickly made a name for herself in the porn industry under the stage name Jenna Presley. “In the beginning, I felt beautiful. I felt like I found my self-worth,” Ruiz said during an interview on The View. But that quickly changed. “After a while I felt destroyed. It was torture for seven years. I was miserable, I was lonely.”

She wanted to get out of the industry, but didn’t know how. “I felt these lies of the enemy,” she said. “‘What are you ever going to do with your life? Nobody is ever going to hire you. Who on Earth in their right mind would ever hire you?’ I felt stuck.”

In 2012, while getting ready to go to Las Vegas to shoot a scene, Ruiz felt God telling her very clearly to bring her Bible, which she had received while at church with her grandfather years earlier.

On the plane, high on drugs, Ruiz pulled out the Bible and began to read from the second chapter of the Book of Revelation where it talks about a woman, Jezebel, who had been deceiving people into committing sexual immorality and was not willing to repent.

Ruiz remembers thinking:

I’m that woman. That’s me. I am leading people into adultery every single day… [N]ow that I know, I know that I’m not supposed to be doing this. This is not my purpose. This is not my calling. I am not meant to be a porn star. I’m not meant to be a prostitute. These are not the things I’m supposed to be doing with my life… I’m meant to help people, I’m not meant to hurt them.

She didn’t want to film the scene; but with only $5 to her name and rent due soon, she didn’t feel like she had a choice. She decided she would go ahead and film it, but that it would be her last. “After I filmed that scene I thought, ‘There’s no looking back.’ I got super involved in the church very quickly. I love Jesus and I’m all for him. I want to do everything according to his word,” she said.

Since leaving the porn industry, Ruiz’s life has completely changed. “I’ve learned so much. My life before Jesus — it was treacherous,” she recalls. “The sad thing is, I didn’t know it was treacherous. I didn’t know what joy was, what peace was — I didn’t know how to be happy.”

Ruiz now realizes the plan and purpose God has for her life and is using her experiences to help other girls who want to get out of the porn industry.

Read More and Comment: $70,000 Tax Lien Placed On MSNBC Host Melissa Harris-Perry And Husband]]>
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry and her husband, James Perry, had a tax lien of roughly $70,000 placed on them by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Harris-Perry, who is also a political science professor at Wake Forest University, told The Winston-Salem Journal Wednesday that she did not know about the lien but was well aware of the debt.

According to the notice, it covers a tax period ending December 31, 2013.The couple reportedly paid off $21,721 and has to pay off $48,581. “We were aware that we would continue to need to work to pay off the 2013 debt,” Harris-Perry told the publication, noting they would pay off the debt as quickly as possible and that she established a payment plan with the IRS.

In the January 18 edition of her eponymous MSNBC television program, Harris-Perry took the opportunity to sharply criticize Republican Gov. Sam Brownback of Kansas for his tax policy.

“Remember when you used your very first state-of-the-state back in 2011 to promise a reset of the Kansas tax code?,” Harris-Perry said at the time.

Well, you made good in May of 2012 when you signed historic tax cuts into law and claimed that as the state marched toward zero income tax it would quote ‘create tens of thousands of new jobs and help make Kansas the best place in America to start and grow a small business.’ You followed that up with even further income tax cuts in 2013.

But the jobs, and small business growth, and booming prosperity you hypothesized did not materialize. Instead, as a result of your experiment last April, Moody’s downgraded your state’s credit score. And Standard and Poors followed with a credit downgrade for Kansas in August.

The downgrades reflected a reality your sunny disposition did not. Your tax cuts have created a 1 billion dollar revenue loss and run up a staggering budgetary shortfall, estimated to be as large as 280 million dollars.

Harris-Perry is not the only MSNBC host with tax problems. A 2014 report published by The New York Times showed that Rev. Al Sharpton owed the IRS about $3 million.

This post originally appeared on Western Journalism - Equipping You With The Truth



Read More and Comment: Nebraska Republicans Join Effort To Repeal Death Penalty]]>
A bipartisan effort among Nebraska state senators this week advanced a bill that would end the death penalty in that state. On the strength of a 30-13 vote – enough to override an expected veto by Gov. Pete Ricketts – supported by seven Republicans, the bill will now be subject to legislative debate before it can be sent to the governor.

While Democrat State Sen. Ernie Chambers – who came under fire recently for comparing police officers to ISIS terrorists – sponsored the bill, concerns over certain aspects of the death penalty led the seven Republicans to lend their support. In fact, nine of the bill’s original cosponsors were Republicans; however, State Sen. Brett Lindstrom removed his name amid the controversy surrounding Chambers. Upon removing his name, Lindstrom nonetheless confirmed he would ultimately vote for it.

“You have to look at the bill itself,” he said, “not who brought the bill.”

The Republicans on board expressed varied concerns, specifically over those wrongfully convicted and sentenced to death and the high costs associated with enforcing the death penalty, in announcing their support of repeal.

“I may be old fashioned,” added State Sen. Tommy Garrett, “but I believe God should be the only one who decides when it is time to call a person home. The state has no business playing God.”

Another GOP leader in the push to repeal the death penalty, State Sen. Colby Coash (pictured above), insisted that such punishment “is not justice, it’s revenge.”

The Nebraska chapter of Conservatives Concerned about the Death Penalty joined the effort; and the organization’s national coordinator, Marc Hyden, was on hand to address the issue during a recent press conference. Western Journalism reached out to Hyden (pictured below), who offered his thoughts on the development:

Nebraska conservative leaders are joining Republican lawmakers from across the country who are voicing their opposition to the death penalty. Similar groups have also organized in Montana, Kansas, Tennessee, and North Carolina. Increasingly, conservatives everywhere are realizing the death penalty risks innocent lives and costs more than alternatives, while failing [to] serve the swift and sure justice that murder victims’ families deserve.

It wasn’t Muslims complaining about the bacon-themed game-time menu offered by the IronPigs, a minor league baseball team in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley. And it also wasn’t Michelle Obama insisting that the goodies sold to fans had to be healthier. It was the Washington-based Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine that put pressure on the team to offer more nutritious fare to the folks at Coca-Cola Park.

As the website MILB notes, the Ironpigs decided to go ahead and add a little green to the pork-product food choices that included such fan faves as maple candied bacon on a stick. But they didn’t altogether abandon their proud bacon-rich tradition.

“…the club will begin to offer deep-fried bacon-cheddar broccoli bites filled with broccoli florets, real bacon and sweet onions in crisp potato breading….”

“We believe in bacon and think that as part of a balanced diet it is a tremendous healthy food option,” exclaimed IronPigs President and General Manager Kurt Landes. “Ultimately though, our organization is not in the business of dictating to people what they should or shouldn’t eat as that decision should be left to each individual and their family.”

Stuart Varney of the Fox Business Network spoke with Kurt Landes to learn more about the team’s preservation of the IronPigs’ tradition while giving fans a chance to score some veggies at the same time.

By the way, the theme for the IronPigs’ 2015 season is “Bacon, USA” that features a bacon-themed uniform as well as a bacon strip on-field cap. And of course, the Twitter hashtag promotional campaign is built around #SmellTheChange.

Read More and Comment: Duck Dynasty’s Korie And Willie Robertson Open Up On Their Faith And Raising A Family With Biblical Morals]]>
The famed Robertson clan of Duck Dynasty fame is taking the nation by storm with its hard work, faith in God, and love for family. 

They’ve seen their name reach television, video games, book stores, and so much more. They are now seeing their new Duck Dynasty musical come to the stage at select Las Vegas hotels. With the Duck Dynasty name continually growing, viewers want to know how they’ve done it.

Willie and Korie Robertson joined Billy Hallowell of TheBlaze to discuss how they earned their fame, how they work to glorify God, and how they accomplish the all-important task of raising a family in this day and age with biblical morals.

“I really have seen kind of a swelling of [this] generation wanting to do something good, wanting to make a positive change in the world,” Mrs. Robertson said, noting that her book Strong and Kind will focus on raising children. “…If you put those values to where they’re going to be kind, they’re going to be strong, they’re going to be respectful, and compassionate and all those values that are important, then whenever they get to be adults, they’re going to be good people.”

“And politically, if we can elect people with those values and elect people that do that,” Mr. Robertson added. “I think there’s so many areas in which we can grow and kind of do like Ronald Reagan and change the hearts and minds of people, then you can make some change.”

The couple also discussed how the show Duck Dynasty got started and how originally, Uncle Si wasn’t going to be a part of the show.

“When the list came out of who was going to be on the show, there was no Uncle Si,” Willie said. “And I called them, and I said, ‘Guys, y’all need to look again at my uncle. He’s just insane.’”

The show was originally going to be centered around the Robertson couples; and because Si’s wife didn’t want to be on television, they weren’t going to put him on the show. But once the producers met Si, they loved his quirky nature–and the rest is history.

“What he does at ‘work’, when he says that he’s working – all that’s true,” Willie added.

Hillary Clinton claims to be a champion for the middle class. Laughable.

Hillary Clinton also claims to be a champion for women. Extra, double, super laughable. Why? Here are 5 reasons:

1.  Hillary intimidated and suppressed any women who came forward with accusations against her husband while he was serving as President. To quote Political Insider, “Hillary ran a ‘war room’ to crack down on so called ‘bimbo eruptions.’ This was the name given to the countless stories of infidelity and sexual assaults committed by Bill Clinton over the years.”  For some reason, I thought silencing women and being a voice for women were two different things!

TinaFeySluts

2.  She defended a child rapist, and laughed about it. Laughed. About. It. Or, in the words of the victim, Hillary Clinton took me through hell.”  Sound like a champion of women’s rights to you?

ByeBye

3.  Hillary Clinton is a strong advocate for abortion. Have you heard of gendercide?  Abortion has been consistently shown to affect girl babies at significantly higher levels than boy babies.  It’s absolutely tragic. We’re killing baby girls by the millions, and ‘pro-woman’ Hillary supports it.

NotAFeminist

4.  She doesn’t believe women can afford their own birth control. Instead, she believes the government should force employers to provide contraceptive coverage of every kind, even if it’s against their deeply-held religious beliefs. Don’t worry about freedom, sweethearts; let the taxpayer get the bill.

5.  Hillary Clinton accepted millions of dollars from countries who oppress and suppress women. Senator Rand Paul may have said it best“In countries that stone people to death for adultery and imprison people for adultery, this is the kind of thing you would think someone for women’s rights would be standing up against, instead of accepting thinly veiled bribes.” Boom goes the dynamite.

As the man credited for leading General Electric to record profitability during his years as chairman and CEO, 79-year-old Jack Welch continues to command attention when he shares an opinion. Recently, he appeared on Fox News’ Your World with Neil Cavuto, where he was asked to react to the current crop of presidential hopefuls.

Of the four – three Republicans and one Democrat – who have already announced their candidacy, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is Welch’s obvious favorite.

“Love him,” he said of the Tea Party favorite. “He says what he’s going to do; he does it. He’s highly principled. He’s a guy you can trust.”

The only criticism Welch has of Cruz so far, it seems, is that he comes across as too serious.

“I want Ted Cruz to smile more,” he explained, “because he’s a hell of a good guy.”

Welch went on to explain why he is an early Cruz supporter, noting that America “needs more truth and trust,” attributes he believes Cruz can bring to the White House.

The two other Republicans in the race, Sens. Marco Rubio and Rand Paul, received somewhat less glowing recommendations from the retired executive.

Rubio, he said, has an admirable “ability to articulate issues,” though he recognized “some concerns about where he is on immigration and how he feels about it.”

Welch went on to criticize Paul for “the fact that he was one way with the wind on foreign policy and now he’s back the other way.”

He also reacted to Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, saying that while he is “not going to vote for her,” it remains her party’s decision regarding “whether she qualifies for the truth and trust issue.”

Do you support Ted Cruz? Sound off in the comments section below.

Read More and Comment: Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Alderman Do Not Like Spike Lee Film Title ‘Chiraq’]]>
Prominent officials in Chicago have raised concerns with a film being produced by renowned director Spike Lee. The concerns include the working film’s name and a $3 million tax break.

The Chicago Tribune reported Mayor Rahm Emanuel met with Lee Wednesday to discuss his film documenting violence on Chicago’s south side, specifically the neighborhood of Englewood.

During the meeting, Emanuel conveyed his displeasure with the film’s working title, Chiraq, a portmanteau combining ‘Chicago’ and ‘Iraq’ and a term popularized in the hip-hop scene. “He said the movie is about the neighborhood of Englewood. I was clear that I was not happy about the title,” Emanuel said at a press conference.

I told him also that there are very good people who live in Englewood who are raising their family. There’s a lot of positive things happening in Englewood, mainly driven by the people that make up Englewood.

The former chief of staff to President Barack Obama said Lee did recognize Chicago was not the only violent city in the U.S. during their meeting. “It’s happening in Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York, where he’s from. He talked about a name of a part of Brooklyn where he’s from. He talked about how Philadelphia’s referred to. He talked about how Baltimore’s referred to,” Emanuel added.

While the recently re-elected mayor did not say whether Lee would agree to changing the film’s title, he did say it would tackle important issues including black-on-black violence:

I said then, and I believe, that’s an important conversation to have. Given you’re a great artist, while I don’t support the title and I don’t like the working title, the topic is a conversation that has been ignored for too long and needs to be discussed.

Chicago Alderman Will Burns Wednesday also slammed the ‘Chiraq’ title. “For people who live on the South and West Sides who pay their taxes, are active in block clubs and work to make their neighborhoods better, it’s a slap in the face,” Burns said.

South Siders and West Siders already walk around with a massive chip on their shoulders. There’s a sense the media only comes to cover dead bodies and not the positive things that happen every day. And why is this guy from New York coming to do a movie about Chicago?

Passed in December 2008 by the Illinois General Assembly, the tax credit offers filmmakers a 30 percent break on “all qualified expenditures,” Politico pointed out. The intention of the policy was to create jobs and “stimulate diversity in production hiring,” says the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.

Still, Burns had no objection to Lee making the film.

It’s not a First Amendment issue, and I’m on the board of the ACLU by the way, because no one is saying he can’t make the movie. I’m just saying if you’re going to take the subsidy, the public should be given a seat at the table, and we need to have a conversation and a dialogue about it. It’s our money, and it’s our city.

DOJ Banning Veterans From Owning Firearms In Surprising Numbers http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/doj-banning-veterans-from-owning-firearms-in-surprising-numbers/ http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/doj-banning-veterans-from-owning-firearms-in-surprising-numbers/#respond Fri, 17 Apr 2015 20:45:06 +0000 http://www.westernjournalism.com/?p=221046 In light of this current, overly broad VA reporting policy, a concerned senator wants answers.

Read More and Comment: DOJ Banning Veterans From Owning Firearms In Surprising Numbers]]>
Image for representational purposes only.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wants to know why so many of our nation’s veterans are being barred from exercising their Second Amendment right to bear arms.

In a letter dated this week to Attorney General Eric Holder, Grassley outlines his concerns that far too many veterans are being denied the right to purchase or own weapons due to an overly broad reporting policy adopted by the Department of Veterans Administration (VA). The senator noted that 99.3 percent of all names reported to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) in “mental defective” category were supplied by the VA, according to a 2012 Congressional Research Service Report.

A 2013 senate report mirrored this percentage, finding that the VA reported 83,000 veterans as “mental defective.”

The standard the VA is supposed to use in reporting veterans to the NICS is whether the veteran poses a risk to himself and/or others. However, according to Grassley:

The VA reports individuals to the gun ban list if an individual merely needs financial assistance managing VA benefits. Although the VA process is not designed to regulate firearm ownership, it results in veterans and their loved ones being barred from exercising their fundamental, Constitutionally-guaranteed Second Amendment rights.

The senator explains that the burden of proof actually falls on the veteran, not the VA, in proving competency to manage his or her benefits; and wrapped up in that determination is the veteran’s ability to exercise his or her Second Amendment rights.

Regardless, Grassley argues that competency to manage financial benefits and meeting the standard of not posing a risk to themselves or others in owning firearms are two separate issues.
“A veteran or dependent shouldn’t lose their constitutional rights, because they need help with bookkeeping,” he said.

In light of this current, overly broad VA reporting policy, the senator wants answers to the following questions from Holder:

1. Is the primary purpose of the NICS list to preclude firearm ownership and possession by individuals who are a danger to themselves and/or others? If not, what is the primary purpose of the NICS list?

2. Is the primary purpose of the VA’s reporting system to report the names of individuals who are appointed a fiduciary?

3. Out of all names on the NICS list, what percentage of them have been referred by the VA?

4. Do you believe that a veteran adjudicated as incompetent to manage finances and appointed a fiduciary is likewise mentally defective under the ATF standard? If so, what is the basis for that conclusion?

5. Does the standard employed by the VA to report names to the DOJ for subsequent placement on the NICS list comply with the protections of the Second Amendment? If so, please explain how, in light of due process concerns described above.

6. Given that the VA adjudication process can result in a complete infringement of a person’s fundamental Second Amendment right, do you believe that the use of the “clear and convincing” evidentiary standard is proper? If so, why?

7. Is the DOJ satisfied that all names reported from the VA for placement on the NICS are, in fact and in law, persons who should not own or possess a firearm because they are dangers to themselves and/or others? If so, what evidence supports that conclusion?

8. Given that 99.3% of all names in the NICS “mental defective” category are reported from the VA, has the DOJ reviewed the VA’s reporting standards and procedure? If so, please provide a copy of the review that took place. If no review took place, please explain why not.

9. What review process does DOJ have in place to ensure that names are properly on the NICS list?

10. How many individuals have appealed their placement on the NICS list? How many individuals were successful in their appeal?

11. In light of the fact that the Supreme Court has held the Second Amendment to be a fundamental right, has the DOJ changed any processes and procedures relating to the NICS system which were in existence prior to that holding?

12. Besides the VA, what other federal agencies have reported names to the NICS list since 2005? And how many names were reported by each agency since 2005?

Grassley requested that the attorney general have answers to his questions by April 30, 2015.

Read More and Comment: New Report Claims Hillary’s Deleted Emails Contained Names Of Numerous Lesbian Lovers]]>
Hillary Clinton has encountered several roadblocks in the days since announcing her presidential candidacy, many of which stemmed from accusations that she inappropriately used a personal email address to conduct official business during her stint as the head of the U.S. State Department. With reports of numerous emails permanently deleted from her server, speculation continues to swirl within the political realm regarding what she hoped to keep secret.

An exclusive report by the National Enquirer this week attempted to address that issue, citing an anonymous source close to Clinton who claims she is desperately trying to hide names and details about her many lesbian lovers.

While she has faced allegations of extramarital, same-sex affairs in the past, specifically with former staffer Huma Abedin, recent accusations contend Clinton was intimately involved with numerous other women. According to the unnamed authority cited by the Enquirer, though, Clinton is not worried about persistent rumors concerning her sexuality.

“That’s been out for years,” the individual acknowledged, adding that “her real fear is that the names of some of her lovers would be made public.”

The Enquirer obtained descriptions of several of the women to whom Clinton has been linked, including a movie star, a model, and the daughter of “a top government official.”

It was primarily her desire to cover up this information, the source alleged, that prompted her to take the decisive step of erasing a large number of emails. The insider did offer another potential issue Clinton might have hoped to keep under wraps by deleting the files, suggesting evidence exists that on at least one occasion, she accidentally sent a government-related email to one of her lovers instead of its intended recipient.

“That makes you wonder if any sensitive information was sent to her romantic partners,” the source concluded.

Of course, any report based on the testimony of an unnamed source is inherently subject to skepticism – especially when published by an outlet with a reputation for sensationalism. The Enquirer has, however, been responsible for breaking several major stories before more mainstream sources, often on the strength of anonymous informants.

As a couple of prominent examples, reports of Tiger Woods’ affair and Jesse Jackson’s love child first appeared in the pages of the National Enquirer.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton last Sunday announced her 2016 run for president, but she has met some bipartisan backlash along the way.

So far during her campaign, she has parked in a handicap spot while in Iowa, evaded the press at her first campaign event in Iowa, and avoided the public and spoke to nobody while in a Chipotle in Ohio.

Hillary is running on the notion that she wants to appeal to the “average” and “everyday” American.

Above Average, a comedy network on Youtube, poked fun at the Hillary campaign by creating a video illustrating how her team might have gone about planning her Chipotle visit.

In the clip, the Hillary team is seen as a task force, detail-oriented and organizing the “casual drop in”–all the way down to what she would be eating.

Read More and Comment: Will You Join The Salt And Light Brigade–And Stand Up For Christian Values?]]>
Last week, I asked the question, “Where is OUR Team?” If you haven’t taken the time to read it, I highly recommend that you do so now.

If you’re anything like me, you are frustrated. Elections seem to be a waste of time—meet the new boss, same as the old boss—and those we elect seem to ‘forget’ everything they promised during their campaigns.

Our pastors are worthless, at least in regard to fighting the cultural war. For some odd reason, they fail to realize that the command to be “salt and light” has to do with impacting the culture. Hiding the light inside the church building and keeping the salt inside the shaker does not advance the Kingdom of God.

More and more folks are realizing that something is terribly wrong. Frustrated with the pastors and the politicians, they turn to political activism. Tea Parties, 9-12 groups, and patriot meetings are popping up all over the landscape. This is a desperate attempt to try to find someone willing to lead.

The Scriptures tell us that “For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?” No wonder folks won’t prepare for battle…the trumpet is silent. Our leaders are afraid someone will complain about the trumpet being too loud, or hateful, or mean, or unchristian.

Meanwhile, the God-haters have a marching band tramping up and down the field while God-fearing Americans sit in the stands and watch the massacre, all the while wondering when our team gets to take the field. But as I wrote last week, WE’VE HAD NO TEAM.

Well, we do now. I am working feverishly with men and women across America to get our team assembled and ready to take the field. In less than a week since we’ve launched this initiative, our numbers are already in the thousands!!

Now we need YOU on the team!! Come and be part of THE SALT AND LIGHT BRIGADE!!

Look folks, I know that I am not some big-name preacher or politician; but I know how to put a team together. That’s why they call me “Coach.” It’s time to get our team organized.

But please understand, this is not another “organization.” Lord knows that is the last thing we need. The Body of Christ is a living, breathing ORGANISM…one body, many members. But the problem is that we haven’t been functioning as one body. We have been working as many bodies.That is called division. Each group is doing their own thing, with no coordinated attack focused on the real enemy.

Think of the hundreds of millions of dollars that have been funneled into the “pro-family” ministries. They read like an alphabet soup: FRC, FOF, AFA, NOM, NRTL, SBC–and yet the humanists are stealing our money and eating our lunch. In fact, Dr. James Dobson, who was fired from Focus on the Family, the organization that he founded, admitted this in 2009:

“The battles that we fought in the 80’s, now, we were victorious in many of those conflicts with the culture trying to defend righteousness, trying to defend the unborn child, trying to preserve the dignity of the family, and the definition of marriage. We fought all those battles, and really it was a holding action. And now we are absolutely awash in evil and the battle is still to be waged, and we are right now in the most discouraging period of that long conflict. Humanly speaking we can say that we have lost all those battles.”

Millions of dollars down a rat hole; and today, they are asking for more, fighting the same losing battles with the same old failed strategies, not working together, all while protecting their donor lists from one another.

Republicans have been their solution…raising money for guys like Boehner, McConnell, and Jeb Bush! The Christian Right IS the Republican Party; yet the Republican leaders despise the Religious Right. The political strategy has failed, and Christians have enriched the political machine to their own demise.

Jesus told us that HE would build a church and that ”the gates of hell will not prevail” against that church. The battle for Truth belongs to God’s people. Yet we have hired mercenaries (politicians) to do the job that Jesus mandated to His people. America’s problems are spiritual/moral. Politicians cannot save us.

Please join our team. You can do it by merely signing up at www.ptsalt.com.

Here is the strategy:

Go back in your mind’s eye to the first Gulf War and the shock and awe of the bombing missions over Bagdad. Before ground troops were sent in, our Air Force bombarded the enemy from the sky.

God’s team has an Air force as well. They are called Prayer Warriors. They are an essential part of the team, but the Air Force (prayer) alone cannot win the battle. At some point, the infantry has to move in.

God has an infantry, too. They are those who are willing to make phone calls to political officials or corporate offices, demanding they do the right thing. They can send letters, faxes, emails, or tweets to the decision makers. They are essential in creating a wave that will overwhelm the enemy.

But we also have Special Ops. These are the trained SWAT (Spiritual Weapons And Tactics) boots on the ground…the first ones to hit the shore and establish a beach-head against the enemy. No war can be won without boots on the ground.

So imagine the Body of Christ, a living, breathing, moving, coordinated ORGANISM springing into action at the first sign of danger. With one simple email, tweet, or text message, we can unleash our forces into action. The Air Force can begin bombarding with prayer. The infantry can man the phones and the computers, and the SWAT Team can hit the beach.

This is not complicated. It just has never been coordinated. How can I help, you may be asking? What difference can I make?

Can you pray? Can you write an email? Can you make a phone call? Are you good at logistics? Can you enter data in a computer? Can you network?

Every skill that our team needs is already gifted into the body: many members with many talents all waiting to be called upon. Everyone is valuable. Everyone has a role to play. We need what you have to offer. Or, more accurately, God needs you!

What if we had been organized in Indiana recently? What if at the first sign of smoke, our team had sprung into action. The Air Force began praying, the phone lines started burning up, and 5,000 SWAT team members had shown up on the steps of the Statehouse? We only lose battles because we are not organized.

Enough is enough! Let’s get to work. Notify everyone in your network of influence.

LET’S MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!! Share it with those at your church, those in your clubs, and those in your family. We won’t bombard you with requests. We won’t beg you for money, and we won’t share your name and email. We need your efforts…not your money.

The Tea Party has been infiltrated and neutralized by money and influence. That won’t happen to us because we are activating an organism…not an organization. If you won’t fight, stop complaining.

We need a new game plan. The excitement is building. Our team is growing. Uncle Sam doesn’t need you…JESUS needs you! ALL HANDS ON DECK!! Our grandkids are depending on us.

Please join with us HERE.

Mr. Gowdy,

On Wednesday, you stated on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show that Congress doesn’t have the “authority” to subpoena the server Hillary used during her term as Secretary of State because “House rules” do not provide for that authority. You sir, have just admitted that you and the rest of the House believe that Congress is powerless and that we live in a Kingdom. I am absolutely sickened by the conviction by which you repeat this lie.

I guess this is what happens when we elect politicians who are fundamentally ignorant of the Constitution, its purpose, and the power and duty it imposes upon our elected representatives. This statement is so repulsive to Liberty, so abhorrent to the principles of separation of powers, and so loathsome to the understanding of our Constitutional Republic that ANY representative who believes what you said in this radio interview should be ASHAMED of themselves.

Alexander Hamilton said this: “your consciences will reproach you for your folly and your children’s children will curse you.”

Why don’t “House Rules” give Congress the authority?  Because House Rules are invented by Politicians to create excuses for not following the Constitution. Then, they don’t have to do the RIGHT thing; they can do the politically easy thing.

Mr. Gowdy, if what you say is true, we are all subjects to the executive branch; and that means we live in a Kingdom and not a Constitutional Republic.

Sir, I believe you have forgotten that the House of Representatives IS the People. And you have just announced to the WORLD that the PEOPLE of American are POWERLESS to their government. I really do not know how to express just how despicable our Congress really has become.

Here is my advice:

Stop making excuses and DO YOUR JOB! Stop worrying about “House Rules” and follow the Constitution. If Congress is so fundamentally ignorant as to WHAT that job is, then perhaps they all need to immediately RESIGN their positions and attend some remedial training. May I advise that you need to abandon your errant law school training (I know, I went there) and get some TRUTH?

HEY TREY! I am NOT a subject. And if YOU believe you have no power to represent us, if you believe you have no power to defend Liberty, and if you believe you are powerless in front of a criminal who has participated in the murder of citizens, violated her Constitutional duty to the people, has aided and abetted the enemy, and should be charged with TREASON and conspiracy to murder…YOU need to hang your head in shame, turn in your resignation, and go home. May I suggest you reread Article 2 section 4?

If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact me. I have some good sources of Constitutional Truth to recommend. Perhaps you might begin with Federalist #69 and the Cato letters. Perhaps this article might help?

Sincerely in Liberty,

KrisAnne Hall

Decrying the Obama administration for using strong-arm, “coercion tactics” in an effort to force his state to expand ObamaCare coverage, Florida Governor Rick Scott says he’s suing the president.

In an interview Thursday night with Fox News’ Kimberly Guilfoyle, the Republican governor of the Sunshine State lashed out at the administration for threatening to cut back funding on an assistance program for low-income families unless Florida officials comply with Washington’s demands. Guilfoyle, substituting for Greta Van Susteren in On the Record, said, “That sounds like extortion.” Gov. Scott replied, “Oh, absolutely.”

This Sunday, April 19, is rightly identified as “Patriots’ Day.” In truth, April 19, 1775, should be regarded as important a date to Americans as July 4, 1776. It’s a shame that we don’t celebrate Patriots’ Day as enthusiastically as we do Independence Day. It’s even more shameful that many Americans don’t remember what happened on this day back in 1775. This was the day the “shot heard ’round the world” was fired. It was the day America’s War for Independence began.

Being warned of approaching British troops by Dr. Joseph Warren (who dispatched Paul Revere to Lexington and Concord with the news), Pastor Jonas Clark alerted his male congregants at the Church of Lexington that the British army was on its way to seize the colonists’ weapons and to arrest Sam Adams and John Hancock. Both men had taken refuge in Pastor Clark’s home with about a dozen of the pastor’s men guarding the house. Other men from the congregation (around 75-80 in number) stood with their muskets on Lexington Green when over 800 British troops appeared before them at barely the break of day.

According to eyewitnesses, British soldiers opened fire on the militiamen without warning (the British command to disperse and the British opening salvo of gunfire were simultaneous), immediately killing eight of Pastor Clark’s parishioners. In self defense, the Minutemen took cover and returned fire. These were the first shots of the Revolutionary War. Again, this took place on Lexington Green, which was located in the shadow of the church-house where those men worshipped each Sunday. The men who were guarding Adams and Hancock escorted them out of harm’s way shortly before the troops arrived. Without a doubt, the heroic efforts of Pastor Clark and his brave Minutemen at the Church of Lexington saved the lives of Sam Adams and John Hancock. And eight of those brave men gave their lives protecting two men who became two of America’s greatest Founding Fathers. But, mind you, Jonas Clark and his men are as important to the story of America’s independence as any of our Founding Fathers.

According to Pastor Clark, these are the names of the eight men who died on Lexington Green on that fateful April morning: Robert Munroe, Jonas Parker, Samuel Hadley, Jonathan Harrington, Jr., Isaac Muzzy, Caleb Harrington, and John Brown–all of Lexington–and one Mr. Porter of Woburn.

By the time the British troops arrived at the Concord Bridge, hundreds of colonists had amassed a defense of the bridge. A horrific battle took place, and the British troops were routed and soon retreated back to Boston. America’s War for Independence had begun.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen; these two elements of American history are lost to the vast majority of historians today: 1) it was attempted gun confiscation by the British troops that ignited America’s War for Independence, and 2) it was a pastor and his flock that mostly comprised the “Minutemen” who fired the shots that started our great Revolution.

With that thought in mind, I want to devote today’s column to honoring the brave preachers of Colonial America–these “children of the Pilgrims,” as one Colonial pastor’s descendent put it.

It really wasn’t that long ago. However, with the way America’s clergymen act today, one would think that preachers such as James Caldwell, John Peter Muhlenberg, Joab Houghton, and Jonas Clark never existed. But they did exist; and without them, this country we call the United States of America would not exist.

Caldwell was a Presbyterian; Muhlenberg was a Lutheran; Houghton was a Baptist; and no one really seems to know what denomination (if any) Jonas Clark claimed. But these men had one thing in common (besides their faith in Jesus Christ): they were all ardent patriots who participated in America’s War for Independence–and, in the case of Jonas Clark, actually ignited it.

James Caldwell

James Caldwell was called “The Rebel High Priest” or “The Fighting Chaplain.” Caldwell is most famous for the “Give ’em Watts!” story.

During the Springfield (New Jersey) engagement, the colonial militia ran out of wadding for their muskets. Quickly, Caldwell galloped to the Presbyterian church, and returning with an armload of hymnals, threw them to the ground, and hollered, “Now, boys, give ’em Watts!” He was referring to the famous hymn writer Isaac Watts, of course.

The British hated Caldwell so much, they murdered his wife, Hannah, in her own home, as she sat with her children on her bed. Later, a fellow American was bribed by the British to assassinate Pastor Caldwell–which is exactly what he did. Americans loyal to the Crown burned both his house and church. No less than three cities and two public schools in the State of New Jersey bear his name today.

John Peter Muhlenberg

John Peter Muhlenberg was pastor of a Lutheran church in Woodstock, Virginia, when hostilities erupted between Great Britain and the American colonies. When news of Bunker Hill reached Virginia, Muhlenberg preached a sermon from Ecclesiastes, chapter three to his congregation. He reminded his parishioners that there was a time to preach and a time to fight. He said that, for him, the time to preach was past–and it was time to fight. He then threw off his vestments and stood before his congregants in the uniform of a Virginia colonel.

Muhlenberg was later promoted to brigadier-general in the Continental Army, and later, major general. He participated in the battles of Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth, and Yorktown. He went on to serve in both the US House of Representatives and US Senate.

Joab Houghton

Joab Houghton was in the Hopewell (New Jersey) Baptist Meeting House at worship when he received the first information regarding the battles at Lexington and Concord. His great-grandson gives the following eloquent description of the way he treated the tidings:

“[M]ounting the great stone block in front of the meeting-house, he beckoned the people to stop. Men and women paused to hear, curious to know what so unusual a sequel to the service of the day could mean. At the first, words a silence, stern as death, fell over all. The Sabbath quiet of the hour and of the place was deepened into a terrible solemnity. He told them all the story of the cowardly murder at Lexington by the royal troops; the heroic vengeance following hard upon it; the retreat of Percy; the gathering of the children of the Pilgrims round the beleaguered hills of Boston; then pausing, and looking over the silent throng, he said slowly, ‘Men of New Jersey, the red coats are murdering our brethren of New England! Who follows me to Boston?’ And every man in that audience stepped out of line, and answered, ‘I!’ There was not a coward or a traitor in old Hopewell Baptist Meeting-House that day.” (Cathcart, William. Baptists and the American Revolution. Philadelphia: S.A. George, 1876, rev. 1976. Print.)

Jonas Clark

As I said at the beginning of this column, Jonas Clark was pastor of the Church of Lexington, Massachusetts, on April 19, 1775, the day that British troops marched on Concord with orders to arrest Sam Adams and John Hancock and to seize a cache of firearms. It was Pastor Clark’s male congregants who were the first ones to face-off against the British troops as they marched through Lexington. When you hear the story of the Minutemen at the Battle of Lexington, remember those Minutemen were Pastor Jonas Clark and the men of his congregation.

On the one-year anniversary of the Battle of Lexington, Clark preached a sermon based upon his eyewitness testimony of the event. He called his sermon, “The Fate of Blood-Thirsty Oppressors and God’s Tender Care of His Distressed People.” His sermon has been republished by Nordskog Publishing under the title, “The Battle of Lexington, A Sermon and Eyewitness Narrative, Jonas Clark, Pastor, Church of Lexington.”  You can find the book here:

Nordskog Publishing

In the Introduction to the book, Gerald Nordskog writes this about Pastor Clark:

“As the pastor of the church at Lexington, he typically gave four sermons a week, written out and orally presented–nearly 2200 sermons in his lifetime. His preaching was vigorous in style, animated in manner, instructive in matter, and delivered with uncommon energy and zeal, with an agreeable and powerful voice. His sermons were rarely less than an hour, often more.”

Nordskog then quotes the Rev. William Ware, who wrote the following a little less than one hundred years after the Battle of Lexington:

“It can be regarded only as a singularly happy circumstance that, as Lexington was to be the place where resistance to the power of England was first to occur, and the great act of a declaration of war first to be made by the act of the people in the blood to be there shed, making the place forever famous in history, the minister of Lexington should have been a man of the principles, character, courage, and energy of Mr. Clark.

“It can be regarded he was eminently a man produced by the times–more than equal to them; rather a guide and leader. All his previous life, his preaching, his intercourse and conversation among the people had been but a continued and most effectual preparation for the noble stand taken by his people on the morning of the 19th of April, 1775. The militia on the Common that morning were the same who filled the pews of the meetinghouse on the Sunday morning before, and the same who hung upon the rear of the retreating enemy in the forenoon and throughout the day. They were only carrying the preaching of the many previous years into practice.

“It would not be beyond the truth to assert that there was no person at that time and in that vicinity–not only no clergyman but no other person of whatever calling or profession, who took a firmer stand for the liberties of the country, or was more ready to perform the duties and endure the sacrifices of a patriot, than the minister of Lexington.

“When the struggle actually commenced, the people were ready for it, thoroughly acquainted with the reasons on which the duty of resistance was founded, and prepared to discharge the duty at every hazard. No population within the compass of the Colonies were better prepared for the events of the 19th of April, than the people of Lexington; no people to whom the events of that day could more safely have been entrusted; none more worthy of the duties that fell to their lot; or who better deserved the honours which have followed the faithful performance of them. No single individual probably did so much to educate the people up to that point of intelligence, firmness, and courage, as their honoured and beloved pastor.”

Of course, Clark, Houghton, Muhlenberg, and Caldwell were not the only ones to participate in America’s fight for independence. There were Episcopalian ministers such as Dr. Samuel Provost of New York, Dr. John Croes of New Jersey, and Robert Smith of South Carolina. Presbyterian ministers such as Adam Boyd of North Carolina and James Armstrong of Maryland, along with many others, also took part.

So many Baptist preachers participated in America’s War for Independence that, at the conclusion of the war, President George Washington wrote a personal letter to the Baptist people saying, “I recollect with satisfaction that the religious societies of which you are a member have been, throughout America, uniformly and almost unanimously, the firm friends to civil liberty, and the preserving promoters of our glorious Revolution.” It also explains how Thomas Jefferson could write to a Baptist congregation and say, “We have acted together from the origin to the end of a memorable Revolution.” (McDaniel, George White. The People Called Baptists. The Sunday School Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, 1918. Print.)

And although not every pastor was able to actively participate in our fight for independence, so many pastors throughout Colonial America preached the principles of liberty and independence from their pulpits that the Crown created a moniker for them: The Black Regiment (referring to the long, black robes that so many colonial clergymen wore in the pulpit). Without question, the courageous preaching and example of Colonial America’s patriot-pastors provided the colonists with the inspiration and resolve to resist the tyranny of the Crown and win America’s freedom and independence.

I invite readers to visit my Liberty Church Project website. We are currently engaged in the noble endeavor of helping to resurrect the patriot-pulpit throughout the United States. Perhaps we could help you. Here is the website:

Liberty Church Project

This is the fighting heritage of America’s pastors and preachers. So, what has happened? What has happened to that fighting spirit that once existed, almost universally, throughout America’s Christian denominations? How have preachers become so timid, so shy, and so cowardly that they will stand apathetic and mute as America faces the destruction of its liberties? Where are the preachers to explain, expound, and extrapolate the principles of liberty from Holy Writ? Where are the pastors to preach the truth about Romans chapter 13?

Readers should know that my constitutional attorney son, Tim, and I have co-authored a blockbuster book dealing with Romans 13. The book is entitled, “Romans 13: The True Meaning of Submission.” It can be ordered at:

Romans 13: The True Meaning Of Submission

Plus, I also delivered four messages dealing with Romans 13. The message series is entitled, “The True Meaning of Romans 13.” These four video messages have been recorded on one DVD and may be ordered at:

Romans 13 DVD

I am absolutely convinced that one of the biggest reasons America is in the sad condition it is in today is because the sermons most Americans frequently hear from modern pulpits refuse to deal with the salient issues of the day; and, therefore, our Christian people are mostly uneducated and ignorant of the great Biblical truths relating to liberty and Natural Law. This milquetoast preaching, along with a totally false “obey-the-government-no-matter-what” misinterpretation of Romans 13, have made it next to impossible to find Christian men with the courage and resolve, and even more importantly, the knowledge and understanding, to stand against the assaults on our liberties.

America cut its spiritual teeth on the powerful preaching and exemplary examples of men such as James Caldwell, John Peter Muhlenberg, Joab Houghton, and, yes, Jonas Clark. That most churches do not have pastors such as these is the main reason America is in the miserable condition it is in today.

Then again, for the most part, our churches have the kind of pastors they want, don’t they? I wonder just how many churches today would even tolerate the kind of sermons Jonas Clark delivered. So, ask yourself, dear Christian friend: if you claim to be a patriot, why do you stay in a church that lacks a patriot-pastor? We have the kind of government we vote for and the kind of church we attend and give to. Think about it.

At any rate, this Sunday, April 19, marks one of the most significant dates in American history. And it is significant, in great part, because of the courage and sacrifice of a pastor and church congregation. I wonder how many pastors across the country will even mention it from the pulpit this Sunday. I wonder how many people in the congregation will miss it if they don’t.

“I do not forget the position assumed by some that constitutional questions are to be decided by the Supreme Court, nor do I deny that such decisions must be binding in any case upon the parties to a suit as to the object of that suit, while they are also entitled to very high respect and consideration in all parallel cases by other departments of the government. And while it is obviously possible that such decision may be erroneous in any given case, still the evil effect following it, being limited to that particular case, with the chance that it may be overruled and never become a precedent for other cases, can better be borne than could the evils of a different practice. At the same time, the candid citizen must confess that if the policy of the government upon vital questions affecting the whole people is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the instant they are made in ordinary litigation between parties in personal actions, the people will have ceased to be their own rulers, having to that extent practically resigned their government into the hands of that eminent tribunal.”–Abraham Lincoln

Read More and Comment: Report: Virginia Voting Machines Could Have Been Easily Hacked For Over A Decade]]>
A new report found that voting machines in Virginia used in three presidential elections were susceptible to hacking. They had passwords as penetrable as ‘abcde’ and ‘admin.’

As The Guardian reported Wednesday, the AVS WinVote machines, in service between 2002 and 2014, would receive an “F-minus,” according to a study prepared by the Virginia Information Technologies Agency.

According to the executive summary of the report entitled “Security Assessment of WInVote Voting Equipment for Department of Elections,” security protocols on the machines “would not be able to prevent a malicious third party from modifying the votes recorded by the WINVote devices.”

The primary contributor to these findings is a combination of weak security controls used by the devices: namely, the use of encryption protocols that are not secure, weak passwords, and insufficient system hardening.

Jeremy Epstein, of Menlo Park, California-based SRI International, served on a commission investigating the machines in 2008. He has been working to have them decertified since then.

“I got to question a guy by the name of Brit Williams, who’d certified them, and I said, ‘How did you do a penetration test?’” he told The Guardian. “And he said, ‘I don’t know how to do something like that’.”

Williams, now retired, referred The Guardian to former colleagues at Kennesaw State University who have taken over the reigns of certification duties since his departure.

“You could have broken into one of these with a very small amount of technical assistance,” Epstein told the publication. “I could teach you how to do it over the phone. It might require an administrator password, but that’s okay, the password is ‘admin’.”

The most recent commission found the software had not been updated since 2004, found that it was possible to “create and execute mallicious code,”and offered the following in conclusion:

  • Passwords were less than seven characters and did not meet best practices for complexity (i.e. they consisted of only lowercase letters). Cracking these passwords required minimal effort using freely available toolsets.
  • Passwords were consistent across all systems tested and appear to be part of the default configuration. All passwords identified were simple and easily guessed, consisting of either a common pattern (i.e., abcde), a common default password (i.e., admin), or a phrase directly related to the system manufacturer (shoup).
  • The scope of testing did not include the impact of changing the default password. But it does not appear possible to change the wireless password directly on the WINVote device. In addition, the impact to the WINVote application once the passwords were changed is unclear. Possible impacts range from lost communication between systems to the inability to record votes properly.

Share this if you think voter fraud is real.

House Votes To Kill The ‘Death Tax’ http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/house-votes-to-kill-the-death-tax/ http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/house-votes-to-kill-the-death-tax/#comments Fri, 17 Apr 2015 17:17:54 +0000 http://www.westernjournalism.com/?p=220979 The vote fell mostly along party lines.

This post originally appeared on Western Journalism - Equipping You With The Truth



Read More and Comment: House Votes To Kill The ‘Death Tax’]]>
The House of Representatives voted on Thursday to repeal the “death tax.” The vote fell mostly along party lines with a passage of 240-179, with seven Democrats joining the Republicans.

“Can you imagine working your whole life to build up a family-owned business or a farm, and then upon your death, Uncle Sam swoops in and takes nearly half of what you spent a lifetime building up for your children and grandchildren?” said Rep. Kevin Brady (pictured above), R-Texas, the bill’s sponsor.

The last time the House voted for an estate tax repeal was in 2005; it passed 272-162, with 42 Democrats joining.

Less than one percent of federal revenue is generated by the tax. The Hill reports:

Under current law, individuals with estates of under $5.43 million this year, and couples with $10.86 million estates, are exempt from paying the tax. Estates pay a maximum rate of 40 percent on the amount of assets above those levels. The Joint Committee on Taxation projects that the estate tax will hit 5,400 estates in 2015, or roughly 0.2 percent of the 2.6 million deaths expected in the U.S. this year.

Forbes identified some arguments for repeal versus keeping the tax. Repealing the tax “would spur the economy and lift burdens on owners of small businesses and farms. Karen Madonia, chief financial officer of Illco, a Chicago-area HVAC supplies distributor, testified on Capitol Hill last month how an estate tax on her father’s death would mean selling parts of the company (shutting down branches, laying off workers or liquidating inventory) to pay it.”

Keeping the tax “helps reduce concentrations of wealth and produces additional revenue. Repealing the tax would cost the Treasury $270 billion over 10 years.”

Senator John Thune, R-S.D., has introduced legislation in the Senate to eliminate the tax; but there does not appear to be a filibuster-proof majority to allow it passage. The measure faces a veto threat from President Obama.

Read More and Comment: Shocker: Christians Avoiding Military Due To ‘Hostile Work Environment’]]>
As in other institutions, including education, the U.S. military has attracted scrutiny in recent years for attempting to silence or relegate servicemen and women who openly profess their Christian faith. As a result, some advocacy groups are now reporting an exodus of sorts within the armed forces as Christians find life in uniform increasingly inhospitable.

The Liberty Institute’s Michael Berry, for example, predicted recruiters will have a hard time selling the benefits of enlisting to individuals who believe their values will be trashed by commanding officers.

“People of faith are going to stay away from the military,” he speculated, recalling conversations he has had in the past with Christian families upset over the recent trend.

“I can’t tell you how many moms and dads I’ve spoken to who say, ‘My son or daughter wants to join the military, [but] in light of what you’ve described, I’m not sure I want to let them join the military anymore,’” he explained, “and I don’t blame them. I would have serious reservations about my own kids joining.”

He described life within today’s military a “hostile work environment” for Christians.

Just weeks after Navy Chaplain Wes Modder was issued a written complaint and threatened with further punishment for expressing his Bible-based view of marriage, Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty President Douglas Lee echoed Berry’s concerns.

“I know people who get out,” he said, “officers and chaplains who’ve said, ‘I can’t serve the way I want to in this environment. People who’ve said, ‘Because of the religious liberty challenges I see, I think I’ll serve somewhere else.’”

In the deck of playing cards given to U.S. troops to help identify key members of Saddam Hussein’s regime, he was known as the “king of clubs.” Now, according to reports from officials in Iraq, Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri — the highest-ranking member of Saddam’s inner circle to evade capture — has been killed in a security operation in that country.

Fox News reports that al-Douri — a top aide to the former Iraqi dictator — allied himself with the Islamic State in recent years and is suspected of being “the mastermind of the insurgency against the current Shiite-led government of Iraq.”

This post originally appeared on Western Journalism - Equipping You With The Truth



Read More and Comment: 225 Years Ago Today, One Of America’s Great Founding Fathers Died]]>
On APRIL 17, 1790, the son of a poor candle-maker died.

The 15th of 17 children, he apprenticed as a printer and published a popular almanac.

He retired at age 42, then taught himself five languages, invented the rocking chair, a stove, bifocal glasses, and the lighting rod, which earned him degrees from Harvard and Yale.

He helped found the University of Pennsylvania, a hospital, and America’s first postal system and fire department.

His name was Ben Franklin.

When France and Spain were raiding the American colonies, Franklin proposed a General Fast, which was published in the Pennsylvania Gazette, December 12, 1747:

We have…thought fit…to appoint…a Day of Fasting & Prayer, exhorting all, both Ministers & People…to join with one accord in the most humble & fervent supplications that Almighty God would mercifully interpose and still the rage of war among the nations & put a stop to the effusion of Christian blood.

In a pamphlet for Europeans titled “Information to Those Who Would Remove to America,” 1754, Franklin wrote:

Atheism is unknown there; Infidelity rare and secret; so that persons may live to a great age in that country without having their piety shocked by meeting with either an Atheist or an Infidel.

And the Divine Being seems…pleased to favor the whole country.

Franklin signed the Declaration of Independence.

On September 28, 1776, as President (Governor) of Pennsylvania, Franklin signed the State’s first Constitution, which stated in Frame of Government, Section 10:

And each member, before he takes his seat, shall make and subscribe the following declaration, viz:

‘I do believe in one God, the Creator and Governor of the Universe, the Rewarder of the good and the Punisher of the wicked. And I do acknowledge the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be given by Divine Inspiration.

And no further or other religious test shall ever hereafter be required of any civil officer or magistrate in this State.’

Franklin called for prayer at the Constitutional Convention.

When Congress was debating slavery, Franklin became President of Pennsylvania’s Society for the Abolition of Slavery, America’s first anti-slavery society.

On March 23, 1790, in his last published letter (Federal Gazette), Franklin condemned the Southern State’s economic argument for continuing slavery by satirically comparing them to the Muslim pirates who enslaved Christians:

If we cease our cruises against Christians, how shall we…make slaves of their people…to cultivate our land…to perform common labors…Must we be our own slaves: And is there not more compassion due to us as Mussulmen than to these Christian dogs.

We have now about 50,000 slaves in and near Algiers…If we then cease taking and plundering the infidel ships and making slaves of the seamen and passengers, our lands will become of no value for want of cultivation.

In his Poor Richard’s Almanac, May 1757, Franklin wrote, “Work as if you were to live 100 years; pray as if you were to die tomorrow.”

Franklin cited the Spanish Empire’s downfall in The Way to Wealth, 1758:

If you would be wealthy, says he…think of saving as well as of getting: the Indies have not made Spain rich, because her outgoes are greater than her incomes.

Franklin expounded the dangers of debt in The Way to Wealth:

God gives all things to industry. Then plough deep, while sluggards sleep, and you shall have corn to sell and to keep, says Poor Dick.

Work while it is called today, for you know not how much you may be hindered tomorrow, which makes Poor Richard say, one today is worth two tomorrows; and farther, have you somewhat to do tomorrow, do it today…

And in another place, pride breakfasted with plenty, dined with poverty, and supped with infamy…

What madness must it be to run in debt for these superfluities! We are offered, by the terms of this vendue (public auction), six months’ credit; and that perhaps has induced some of us to attend it, because we cannot spare the ready money, and hope now to be fine without it…

When you run in debt; you give to another power over your liberty…

If you cannot pay at the time, you will be ashamed to see your creditor; you will be in fear when you speak to him, you will make poor pitiful sneaking excuses, and by degrees come to lose you veracity, and sink into base downright lying; for, as Poor Richard says, the second vice is lying, the first is running in debt.

And again to the same purpose, lying rides upon debt’s back…

Poverty often deprives a man of all spirit and virtue: ’tis hard for an empty bag to stand upright, as Poor Richard truly says…

And yet you are about to put yourself under that tyranny when you run in debt for such dress!

Your creditor has authority at his pleasure to deprive you of your liberty, by confining you in gaol (jail) for life, or to sell you for a servant, if you should not be able to pay him!

When you have got your bargain, you may, perhaps, think little of payment; but creditors, Poor Richard tells us, have better memories than debtors…

The day comes round before you are aware, and the demand is made before you are prepared to satisfy it…

Time will seem to have added wings to his heels as well as shoulders.

Those have a short Lent, saith Poor Richard, who owe money to be paid at Easter.

Then since, as he says, the borrower is a slave to the lender, and the debtor to the creditor, disdain the chain, preserve your freedom; and maintain your independency: be industrious and free; be frugal and free.

At present, perhaps, you may think yourself in thriving circumstances, and that you can bear a little extravagance without injury; but, For age and want, save while you may; No morning sun lasts a whole day, as Poor Richard says.

Gain may be temporary and uncertain, but ever while you live, expense is constant and certain…as Poor Richard says. So rather go to bed supperless than rise in debt.

Singer Miley Cyrus has gained quite a bit of notoriety for “her role as the new twerk queen,” as she’s described in an article on MTV News. For better or for worse, it’s a reign that began for the outlandish performer with her controversial dance display during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

Now, twerking has invaded Russia, where a video of a dance school performance has attracted more than 16.5 million views on YouTube and has sent Russian government officials into a frenzy of outrage and indignation. In fact, as The Moscow Times reports, an official investigation has been launched into how such a scandalous performance could make its way onto the stage and into a wildly popular video being viewed around the world.

“Investigators said Tuesday they had detected ‘signs of indecency’ in a video of teenage girls twerking provocatively at a dance school performance in Orenburg while wearing the orange and black colors associated with Russian patriotism.”

The news article also notes that Russian authorities have identified “evidence of criminal negligence on the part of the dance school’s management” for allowing this kind of provocative performance to go on.

Though the girls’ performance was supposedly designed around the classic story of Winnie the Pooh — you’ll note the person in the bear costume holding a jar labeled “honey” at the beginning of the video — a number of critics have charged that the orange and black colors of the young dancers’ costumes resembled Russia’s honored St. George ribbons associated with the nation’s Victory Day.

By clicking on the video above, you can watch the dance school performance for yourself and imagine how Americans would react if government authorities here responded to the suggestive gyrations of Miley Cyrus in the same way as the Russian officials have done in their country.

A week ago, Western Journalism told you about the outrage expressed by Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas when the U.S. Army refused to provide expected benefits to Purple Heart recipients who were victims of the terror attack by a Muslim militant at Fort Hood. After leading a protracted battle with the Pentagon to get the military to award three-dozen Purple Heart medals to wounded survivors and relatives of those killed in the 2009 shooting rampage, Cruz said on Fox and Friends:

“It is outrageous and it’s indefensible,” [Cruz] said. “One of the reasons we fought so hard to pass the legislation to require the Purple Hearts to be awarded is precisely so that these soldiers get the benefits they deserve.

It shouldn’t have taken five years; this should have happened five years ago.”

Now, as Reuters reports, the Army has done a big about-face and agreed to provide additional benefits to the Purple Heart recipients.

“Army Secretary John McHugh said on Thursday he has ordered benefits including payment of hostile-fire pay for Purple Heart recipients “killed, injured or wounded” in the attack, and combat-related special compensation for retired soldiers disabled in the attack.”

The Los Angeles Times says the just-announced move will mean “full medical and financial benefits” for the Ft. Hood shooting victims.

In a highly controversial decision, the Army had initially designated the Fort Hood shooting rampage as “workplace violence.” It took years for the service to declare it an act of terrorism.

Army psychiatrist Nidal Hassan, an American-born Muslim, killed 13 people and wounded 32 others in what he later described as retaliation for the U.S.-led wars in Muslim countries. Hasan, who last year said he wanted to become a citizen of the Islamic State, was convicted of murder in 2013 and sentenced to death.

In early September of last year, Western Journalism reported on the vicious, unprovoked attack on three people by a mob of black teenagers in Memphis, Tenn., who swarmed across a parking lot toward a Kroger grocery store.

Officials at the time said that two store employees beaten by the mob were knocked unconscious. One man was repeatedly kicked and stomped while lying helpless on the sidewalk. On cell phone video of the incident, there seemed to be a giddy, almost celebratory mood among the witnesses whose voices could be heard.

Now, again in Memphis, surveillance cameras at a gas station have caught on tape another, similar incident involving dozens of black teens identified as students from Northwest Prep Academy. The video shows them rushing and beating a man who was trying to help an elderly woman to her car.

The beating victim, Orrden Williams, Jr., was battered badly by the young assailants as others jumped up and down in apparent excitement over the assault. Despite the brutality of the beating, a Memphis TV station’s coverage of the sudden, vicious assault described the mob of attackers as “rowdy high school students.”

On his Fox News show Thursday night, Sean Hannity interviewed the Good Samaritan who was beaten to the point that he reportedly considered pulling a gun to protect himself and his young son. By clicking on the video above, you can see the incident and the interview on Hannity.

A potential showdown is brewing in southwest Oregon between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and local miners. The owners of the Sugar Pine Mining Claim have asked the constitution rights group Oath Keepers to come to their aid after receiving a “cease and desist” order from the BLM.

The BLM stated that the owners, Rick Barclay and George Backes, lack the proper paperwork, including an operations plan. The owners’ response is that the land has been mined continually for over 100 years; and the claim itself goes back to 1858, even predating the establishment of the BLM by decades. They argue that the federal government has not taken any action over the years that overrode their surface rights to the property.

The gold miners believe that if they can get their day in court, the law will be on their side:

This case is headed in a direction that presents what is probably a once-in-a-generation prime opportunity to strike at the heart of the very surface management authority of the [Department of the Interior] and USDA and to restore the “as patent” rights of every mining claim owner in the United States by striking down the actual source of that intrusive authority.

Concerned that the BLM would come and seize his mining equipment, Barclay contacted the local chapter of Oath Keepers.The group agreed to stand with the miners and set up a base camp on the property, with armed members patrolling the area. It also put out a call nationwide for more volunteers to come.

According to the group’s national website, “Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to ‘defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.’”

“Because we are constitutional group,” Mary Emerick with Oath Keepers said, they agreed to come. “We defend the Constitution…And we are here just to make sure that [the owners] receive their Fifth Amendment rights which is due process.”

The miners have until April 25, 2015 to appeal the BLM’s decision or remove their mining equipment. A BLM spokesman says his agency has no plans of forcing a confrontation at this point.

The BLM has received threatening calls, but the spokesman would not give details because they are being investigated.

The local county sheriff is acting as a mediator between the miners and the BLM. He said the only reason his office would step in would be for public safety, if the situation escalated.

Barclay stated on Thursday that he hopes to avoid another Bundy Ranch-style showdown with the federal government.

“We are not looking for Bundyville. We are not looking to challenge anything. We are just holding our constitutional rights and property rights in reserve until we get our day in court.”

Read More and Comment: Four Students Arrested After Protesting American Sniper; ‘Cultural Appropriation’ Cited]]>

Four students were arrested last week at a Michigan university after interrupting a viewing of the renowned film American Sniper, citing “cultural appropriation.” The disruption caused a second viewing to be cancelled.

A showing of the film at Eastern Michigan University (EMU), about 35 miles west of Detroit, was interrupted last Friday when Ahmed Abbas, Layali Alsadah, Jenna Hamed, and Sabreen Dari led a group of 35 other students to shut it down..

Though the showing continued after the protesters were removed, a second was cancelled because the first ran late.

“Once the film started the protesters moved into the theater and disrupted the movie. Department of Public Safety officers were summoned and the protesters were given several warnings. Four protesters were arrested and released shortly thereafter without any charges being sought,” EMU spokesperson Geoff Larcom told Campus Reform.

One of the lead protesters passionately expressed his dismay.

“We are never allowed to challenge [the administration]. When we do, we get arrested and we are taken in,” Abbas told the Eastern Echo, the university’s official newspaper. “That is the issue here that we have. [The] administration that says Campus Life is supposed to be about students [and students] have no right to challenge them in what we want and what we should be watching.”

“They don’t care about student dignity or respect,” Abbas added. “That is our mission. Moving forward from today in the weeks ahead we are going to be in meetings. This is a chance to get what students want.”

Abbas also told the university paper that black and Jewish communities showed concern when Tropic Thunder and Passion of the Christ were shown on campus:

The reality is, this is about a process of not allowing cultural appropriation for the movies being allowed into the university…This is not about freedom of speech, this is not about freedom of expression, this is about public safety and people being respected with dignity. That’s the reality – that’s why we’re here. If you want to voice yourself, students shouldn’t be protesting.

Student Body President Desmond Miller told the Echo that the decision to show the film was made by him, other members of the board, and other school officials.

“The conversation we had wanted to make sure student safety was at the forefront. We wanted to make sure whatever happens, students would be safe,” Miller said. “The second part of it, which is actually just as important as the first part, was making sure we have a very serious dialogue about the movie and the propaganda associated with this movie.”

Texas Law Targeting Barbecue Restaurants Attracts Serious Backlash http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/texas-law-targeting-barbecue-restaurants-attracts-serious-backlash/ http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/texas-law-targeting-barbecue-restaurants-attracts-serious-backlash/#respond Fri, 17 Apr 2015 00:33:42 +0000 http://www.westernjournalism.com/?p=220904 Complaints vary depending on their source.

Read More and Comment: Texas Law Targeting Barbecue Restaurants Attracts Serious Backlash]]>
In order to satisfy a few residents who have complained about the smoke emanating from certain barbecue restaurants in the city, Austin city council members recently considered implementing new regulations that could put restaurants out of business regardless of whether any complaints were lodged against them. Reports focus on the prevalence of food trucks that billow smoke near residential areas as a primary concern; however, the new rules as written would apply to all restaurants located within 100 feet of a residence.

Though the proposal received an initial thumbs up from city leaders, the council has yet to receive a final version of the ordinance on which they can vote. In the interim, barbecue masters and aficionados alike are lamenting the toll such a restriction could take on the city’s restauranteurs.

KXAN reported that the remedies suggested include forcing business owners to obtain “expensive smoke scrubbers” or switch their wood-burning pits to gas-operated cookers.

Greater Austin Restaurant Association board member Hoover Alexander shared his concern that “if we have an ordinance that paints all of us into one group of folk that may not be good neighbors,” he can foresee being “penalized without considerations of other solutions.”

Local pit master Kent Black shared Alexander’s concerns, urging the city council to “make it a little more specifically aimed at where the problem is and hopefully not burden all of the other restaurants where it’s not a problem.”

For those who frequent the eclectic city’s many barbecue restaurants, a major concern seems to be with preserving the flavor they have come to expect.

“Maybe you don’t understand what BBQ is,” one reader wrote in response to a Washington Weekly News article, “IT’S SMOKE!!!!!!”

Judge Orders IRS To Turn Over 298 Names Of Targeted Conservative Groups http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/judge-orders-irs-to-turn-over-298-names-of-targeted-conservative-groups/ http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/judge-orders-irs-to-turn-over-298-names-of-targeted-conservative-groups/#comments Fri, 17 Apr 2015 00:14:48 +0000 http://www.westernjournalism.com/?p=220849 The ruling comes as a setback to the IRS and potentially opens the door to a class action lawsuit against the agency.

A federal judge in Ohio ordered the IRS to turn over a list of 298 names of groups targeted by the agency for increased scrutiny in the lead up to the 2012 presidential election. The ruling comes as a setback to the IRS, potentially opening the door to a class action lawsuit against the agency by all the targeted groups.

The IRS argued that the agency could not hand over the list due to privacy laws; however, Judge Susan J. Dlott, who sits in the Southern District of Ohio, rejected that claim. She ruled that while the IRS does have the duty to protect the groups’ internal financial information, the public should know of the existence of those organizations on the list.

Judge Dlott also ordered the IRS to confirm whether a list of targeted groups obtained by USA Today and published by the newspaper in September 2013 is accurate.

The judge ruled that since those currently involved in the litigation are seeking to certify a class action lawsuit (i.e. confirm the criteria is met to bring the larger suit):

The return information sought is directly related to the issue of class certification in this federal court proceeding. The names of the putative class member organizations and their control dates — the date which the putative class member organizations submitted their applications for tax exempt status to the IRS — are directly related to the issue of class certification.

Mark Meckler, a tea party member and president of Citizens for Self Governance, which is funding the suit, stated that “We are at the precipice” of certifying the class action suit. The plaintiffs in the suit currently consist of 10 groups, among them the NorCal Tea Party Patriots, the Faith and Freedom Coalition of Ohio, and the Texas Public Policy Foundation. The groups initiated their suit in 2013.

With the entire list, coupled with the scope of a class action lawsuit, the plaintiffs believe they will be able to gain further access into the IRS internal workings, including how the agency chose which groups to target.

As reported in the Daily Signal, they describe themselves as:

“comprised of individual citizens who have joined together to exercise their rights to freedom of speech and expression” and who “dissent from the policies or ideology of the” current administration. They claimed that, on the basis of their beliefs, they had been subjected “to delays and intrusive scrutiny during the tax-exempt status application process.” According to the ten plaintiffs, this violated the Privacy Act, the First and Fifth Amendments, and 26 U.S.C. §6103, a federal statute that protects the confidentiality of tax return information.

The named defendants in addition to the IRS include the Treasury Department, Lois Lerner, and other individual IRS employees.

As reported by Western Journalism, Lerner, head of the IRS’ tax exempt division, admitted wrongdoing on a conference call with reporters in May of 2013. She said that her division had set aside groups with the terms “tea party” or “patriots” in their names for intrusive scrutiny and delayed their approval. She added that the conduct by IRS “front line” personnel was “absolutely inappropriate” and apologized to those groups affected. She has pled the Fifth Amendment right against self incrimination twice when brought before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Days after Lerner’s admission, the independent Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration released the results of its months-long investigation. The IG determined that “The IRS used inappropriate criteria that identified for review Tea Party and other organizations applying for tax-exempt status based upon their names or policy positions instead of indications of potential political campaign intervention.”

The report determined that the wrongful conduct had gone on for 18 months under Lerner’s leadership and resulted in “substantial delays” in processing applications for the targeted groups–and allowed “unnecessary information requests” to be issued to those groups. The IG investigation uncovered the list of 298 targeted groups.

Yesterday, Chuck Todd on NBC’s Today dolled out grades for the announcements of the current 2016 candidates. Todd was first tasked with critiquing Hillary Clinton – who announced on Sunday – and he gave her a grade of “satisfactory.”

During his grading, he said that the former Secretary of State was trying to distance herself from the other announced candidates (Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz) by “trying to not look presidential.”

“You know the irony here is you have a whole bunch of Republicans who are trying to look presidential,” Todd said. “She’s desperately trying to not look presidential.”

If her goal was to “not look presidential,” many might say she has nailed it. In the five days since her announcement, she: avoided the public and spoke to nobody while in a Chipotle in Ohio, parked in a handicap spot while in Iowa, and evaded the press at her first campaign event in Iowa.

Her presidential rollout has been perceived as such a flop that even the folks over at MSNBC are already questioning the authenticity of her campaign. It’s only been five days, and Hillary fatigue is already sinking in.
