Impeachable Offense: Govt Will Investigate Obama’s IRS Records Snooping

Ben Johnson, Floyd Reports

News has broken today that a federal agency will investigate another impeachable offense. The U.S. Treasury Department will launch an investigation into the Obama administration’s allegedly revealing his political opponents’ private tax information to the media.

In late August, an anonymous Obama official (now assumed to be Austan Goolsbee, one of the president’s economic advisors) revealed the tax structure of Koch Industries to the media, information its lawyer, Mark Holden, said must have been gleaned from confidential IRS forms. The possibly illegal disclosure was part of the administration’s coordinated press offensive against Koch Industries, whose owners, David and Charles Koch, have funded a number of libertarian enterprises that vocally oppose the president’s free-spending agenda. Most notable among these is Americans for Prosperity (AFP), whose state chapters host rallies from coast to coast.

Sen. Charles Grassley, R-IA, called for action two weeks ago.

Treasury Inspector General J. Russell George said, “As the inspector general charged with ensuring, among other things, the fair implementation of our nation’s system of tax administration…I have ordered the commencement of a review into the matters alleged.” This adds more material to the snowballing avalanche of investigations into the Obama administration’s skirting of the law that could result in the president’s impeachment.

Congressman: Is Kenyan Constitution Con a Criminal Offense?

Ben Johnson, Floyd Reports

The Washington Times posted a hard-hitting expose last night by Rep Chris Smith, R-NJ, focusing on how Barack Obama helped enact Kenya’s new pro-abortion, pro-Sharia constitution. So did you; Obama lobbied for the new constitution with your money. Rep. Smith has noted this kind of advocacy is undoubtedly offensive and may be illegal. He writes that Obama, through the U.S. Agency for International Development:

committed more than $23 million. The list includes eight grants totaling nearly $450,000 explicitly to obtain a total of more than 100,000 “yes” votes in the referendum…

The USAID IG has not yet finished his investigation into these obvious violations of U.S. law. The report on these USAID-funded activities will be in addition to the report issued by the Department of State‘s inspector general tasked with investigating whether State Department employees participated in prohibited activities. Unfortunately, the State Department IG’s conclusion contradicted his own report indicating that U.S. officials urged Kenyans to vote in favor of the constitution…

Even if U.S. money was not used to draft and advocate specifically for the abortion provisions – and it is quite possible that it was – advocacy for the constitution overall is a violation of this restriction.

We can count on the Obama administration to produce an accurate report on this matter around the same time O.J. Simpson finds the real killer.

The facts will be left for Congressional Republicans to investigate next year, if they succeed in retaking one or both houses. They have a large and growing number of targets to investigate, from using your money….

1-in-4 Americans Believe Obama is a Muslim; Here’s Why

Ben Johnson, Floyd Reports

Obama in Muslim Outfit in Kenya

The Left is seething over a new poll showing nearly one-in-four Americans believe Barack Obama is a Muslim. A Time magazine poll found 24 percent of all Americans believe Obama is a Muslim. Another poll conducted by the Pew Research Center set the number at 18 percent. That’s nearly double the number that said the same thing in March 2009 (10 percent). Both polls showed the same trend: more Americans believed Obama is a Muslim and fewer believed he is a Christian this year than last year.

Why is this? Left-wing pundits blame it on “Republican smear tactics” and disinformation. However, there is a simpler explanation: the president’s own actions lead people to believe he is not a Christian.

According to the Pew poll, “Eleven percent [of those saying Obama is a Muslim] said they learned it from Obama’s behavior and words.”

What actions might lead the American people to believe the president is a Muslim and not a Christian — or at least, not a real one?

One could begin with his behavior in the last week. At a White House function observing a Muslim religious practice, Obama announced that he supports the construction of the Ground Zero mosque but said nothing about the Port Authority of New York’s decision not to rebuild a Greek Orthodox Church destroyed on 9/11. Although replacing a church with a mosque is a vital aspect of jihad, Obama affirmed yesterday that he has “no regrets” for his selective comments.

Obama has yet to attend the National Prayer Breakfast but hosted an Iftar dinner breaking the Ramadan fast.

He has bowed to the king of Saudi Arabia — and then lied about it, not exactly an act in keeping with Christian morality. 

He spent at least $23 million promoting Kenya’s new pro-abortion, pro-Sharia constitution.

He lives in the same Chicago neighborhood as Louis Farrakhan (a close friend of Obama’s pastor, Jeremiah Wright), which is patrolled by the Nation of Islam’s youth brigade, the Fruit of Islam.

Although three-quarters of the American people call themselves Christians, Obama has insisted, “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation.” Yet he said elsewhere America is “one of the largest Muslim nations in the world.” His religious adviser, Eboo Patel, once deemed the United States “the ideal place for the renewal of Islam.”

Compiling his statements — as this video does — shows the full weight of his admiration of Islam, on display for all the world since at least his groveling speech in Cairo last June.

One of his faith advisers, Harry Knox, called members of the Knights of Columbus “foot soldiers of a discredited army of oppression” for opposing gay “marriage” and insisted the Book of Romans “is not true” because it condemns homosexuality.

Obama himself has mocked the Scriptures while asserting the Sermon on the Mount supports same-sex “marriage.”

The alleged “committed Christian” has a deep commitment to abortion, although true Christians have opposed abortion since the first century. One of his first acts as president was to restore taxpayer funding for overseas abortions, which Ronald Reagan discontinued with his Mexico City policy. He signed a meaningless executive order that “banned” using ObamaCare from financing abortion, but that practice has already begun in Pennsylvania and Maryland. His selection of two feminists for the Supreme Court show he wants to keep infanticide legally protected for a very long time.

One of those Supreme Court appointees, Elena Kagan, showed the administration has no fealty to the traditional family. She drafted a perfunctory, half-hearted “defense” of the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as a union of one man and one woman. However, she added, “this Administration does not support DOMA as a matter of policy, believes that it is discriminatory, and supports its repeal.” Obama extended some benefits to same-sex “partners” of federal workers this summer, in the hopes Congress will mandate full benefits.

Even his stimulus plan funded a project that threatens the home of Pastor Greg Sheets in Newark, Ohio.

His every action repudiates Christianity yet uplifts and advances the religion of Islam.

As Jesus Christ said, “By their fruits, ye shall know them.”

State Dept. Whitewashes Obama’s Impeachable Role Pushing Kenyan Constitution

The State Department claimed yesterday Barack Obama had not illegally spent millions of dollars supporting Kenya’s new pro-abortion, pro-Sharia constitution.

Its Office of Inspector General released a reporting claiming no U.S. official made “any private or public statements … expressing either a positive or negative position on the abortion provision in the draft Kenyan constitution, nor did they attempt to influence any Kenyan’s opinion, either positively or negatively, on the abortion provision.”

This sounds like Clinton-era word-parsing. The fact is President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden have both praised the new Kenyan constitution, which legalized abortion. Obama told the Kenyan Broadcasting Corporation the pro-abortion document represented a “singular opportunity to put the government of Kenya on a more solid footing.” On another occasion, Joe Biden told a Kenyan audience it would “deepen the roots of your democracy.” Ironically, he added the pro-abortion constitution would also “unleash the energy of the youth.”

Rep. Chris Smith, R-NJ, has detailed how the Obama administration spent at least $23 million funding organizations that supported the new constitution in Kenya. This could be an impeachable offense. Former prosecutor Andy McCarthy has written the advocacy was “borderline criminal (and that’s being generous).”

The State Department is circling the wagons. We thank Rep. Smith for his work so far and hope he will not fold in pursuing the truth.

Congressman Smith: Obama Violating Law to Influence Kenyan Vote

By Rep. Chris Smith (This article is a transcript of a speech given by Smith at a press conference today)

Two weeks from today, millions of Kenyans will go to the polls either to affirm or reject a sweeping new constitution in a nationwide plebiscite.

In the run up to this referendum—just like any other election— the United States and other democracies have a profoundly important, but narrow role to play. And that is to ensure to the greatest extent possible that the plebiscite—referendum—is free, fair and peaceful.

Election monitoring is a hallowed process designed to protect the integrity and legitimacy of the voting process before, on the day of actual balloting and during certification of the results.

Thus the only legitimate role of the United States and other governments is ensuring that the August 4th Constitutional referendum in Kenya is free, fair and without violence.

Under no circumstances should the U.S. government take sides by supporting, facilitating and funding projects designed to identify and motivate votes for either side.

Yet that is precisely what the Obama Administration has done.

And because the proposed Constitution significantly alters existing abortion law in Kenya, expending U.S. federal funds in support of the “Yes” campaign is also illegal.

Today, my colleagues and I note with alarm, shock and dismay that the evidence gathered by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Inspector General (IG) Donald Gambatesa clearly shows that the Obama Administration has funded [Read more...]
