Evidence Shows White House Involved in IRS Targeting Scandal from Beginning

Published

on

From the moment the IRS targeting scandal was made public, I contended that Barack Obama and the White House were at the heart of the targeting. I’ve written many times that then IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman made far more visits to the White House than any other cabinet member.
Before Shulman’s departure, he made 157 visits to the White House. The next most frequent cabinet member visitor was Acting Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank with only 86 visits. Attorney General Eric Holder only made 62 visits during the same time period and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton only made 43 visits during that time frame.
If Obama was not the instigator of the IRS targeting, then what other reason is there for so many visits by Shulman?
In July 2013, The Daily Caller reported that William Wilkins, IRS Chief Legal Counsel, met with President Obama just two days prior to when the new IRS policy of targeting tea party and conservative groups was handed down. Furthermore, Carter Hull, a retiring IRS agent, named Wilkins as one of his supervisors who were involved in handing down the targeting directives.
If the Congressional committees need any further evidence to link Barack Obama to the IRS targeting scandals, it was just handed to them by the Treasury Inspector General. Last week we heard that through their investigation that they were able to recover over 30,000 of Lois Lerner’s supposedly lost emails through some forensic processes.
Now the same Treasury Inspector General’s office has revealed that they have found around 2,500 documents that implicate that the IRS had shared information with the White House from the onset of the targeting. Cause for Action filed a federal lawsuit demanding access to the documents which were eventually turned over to them. From preliminary reports, the White House was involved from the beginning in the IRS probing into Tea Party and conservative groups.
I’m sure that more information on this involvement will be made public soon, but if the documents do provide the evidence that is being indicated, it would give Congress grounds for the impeachment of Barack Obama. Yes, I know that they already have a list a mile long of impeachable crimes that Obama could be tried for. The question is if it’s worth it at this point in time and if it does happen do we really want to change from Dictator-in-Chief to Clown-in-Chief with Joe Biden?

Teacher Outrages Parents with Assignment Saying ‘Dictator Trump Turns Americans into Refugees’

A Pennsylvania middle school teacher has outraged parents by handing out an assignment that presents Trump as a “dictator.”

Published

A Pennsylvania middle school teacher has outraged parents by handing out an assignment that presents Trump as a “dictator” that causes Americans to flee the country as “refugees.”

The teacher at Penn Cambria Middle School in Cambria County, Pennsylvania, drew criticism after the assignment.

According to FrontpageMag:

“President Trump is trying to take control of the United States!” read the deliberately inflammatory assignment, portraying America’s legitimate president as a dictator enacting a coup. “There are fights in the streets! You have to pretend that you are a refugee being forced to leave your home, never to return.”

The assignment then goes on to instruct students to spend only ten minutes to pack a bag because Trump’s soldiers are coming to imprison them. The teacher then ordered the students to empty the bag and then send her a photo of the contents.

“Please have a parent to [sic] time them for 10 minutes while they packed a bag. When the time was up they were to take a picture of the contents of their backpack and then email it to me,” the teacher’s assignment read. “If no picture, then draw it. You will have to present to us why you chose these items. This is due on Thursday. Worth 10 points.”

After parents complained, School District Superintendent William Marshall insisted that the teacher now understands that her assignment was a “huge error.”

Marshall added that the teacher now “understands” that she can’t use the classroom to push her extreme, anti-Trump personal agenda.

The teacher was also ordered to call each parent and apologize.

But one parent was still furious at the teacher’s inappropriate actions.

“As a parent of a student in this very school [I] am ashamed,” one mother wrote on Facebook. “All this did was scare my child… This is not acceptable in any school or towards any leader. I don’t care if you like the president or not this is unacceptable!”

Virginia Sheriff Tells Liberals He WON’T Enforce New Anti-Gun Laws

One Virginia county sheriff boldly pledged that he would refuse to enforce any new unconstitutional gun control laws passed by Democrats.

Published

on

Attending Monday’s Second Amendment rally in Virginia, one county sheriff boldly pledged that he would refuse to enforce any new unconstitutional gun control laws passed by state Democrats.

Despite the fake news media’s accusations that Monday’s rally in Virginia was a “white nationalist” event, the rally was peaceably attended by hundreds of supporters of the Second Amendment.

But it appears that Virginians are not going to bow meekly to the extremist, left-wing state legislature and its desire to put an end to the Second Amendment.

Grayson County Virginia Sheriff Richard Vaughan, for one, is standing up to the anti-American Democrats in his state.

“Grayson County Virginia Sheriff Richard Vaughan is here with his deputies. He said he won’t enforce stricter gun laws,” The Virginian-Pilot’s Alissa Skelton said. “We are here to stand up for the Second Amendment, he said.”

“Many people are shaking his hand and thanking him,” she added.

“If the bills go through as proposed, they will not be enforced,” sheriff Vaughan. “They’re unconstitutional. We swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of Virginia, and that’s what we’ll do.”

The people of Virginia are also not prepared to bend over for the state’s anti-American leftists:

More than 120 Democrats Signed Letter to Support Un-Indicted Terror Group CAIR

More than 120 Democrats in Congress have signed a letter in support of the terror-supporting group CAIR.

Published

on

More than 120 Democrats in Congress have signed a letter in support of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land terrorism trial.

CAIR is the premiere radical Islamist group in the U.S. that, according to the Department of Justice, was deeply involved with funneling money from American Muslims to terror groups such as Hamas.

Now, more than 120 Democrats have signed a letter to support this terror-supporting outlaw organization acting as traitors right here inside our country.

As the Washington Free Beacon reported:

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an advocacy group with deep ties to the anti-Israel movement in America, touted its support among congressional leaders during its 2019 gala conference in November in Washington, D.C. Prominent opponents of the pro-Israel community, including anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.), headlined the conference.

A copy of CAIR’s conference agenda, obtained by the Free Beacon and published here for the first time, includes well over 100 letters from Democratic and Republican members of Congress, all of whom expressed their support for the controversial organization. Democrats issued the majority of the letters, with only two coming from Republican members of Congress.

The breadth of congressional support for CAIR is likely to generate concern in the pro-Israel community, which has long been at odds with the advocacy group due to its promotion of anti-Israel activists and causes.

Some of the Democrats who signed onto this terror-supporting letter include, Democratic 2020 presidential contenders Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.), and Tom Steyer all penned letters of support. Prominent Democrats such as Omar, Reps. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich), and Eric Swalwell (D., Calif.).

CAIR is a flatout terror organization. As Islamism researcher Robert Spencer explained:

CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements about how Islamic law should be imposed in the U.S. (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.) CAIR chapters frequently distribute pamphlets telling Muslims not to cooperate with law enforcement. CAIR has opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has been proposed or implemented and has been declared a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates. CAIR’s Hussam Ayloush in 2017 called for the overthrow of the U.S. government. CAIR’s national outreach manager is an open supporter of Hamas.

This is the dangerous, anti-American organization that Democrats support.

‘Reporter’ Tries to Get Target Worker Tori Fired Because He Didn’t Like Toothbrush Price

A jerk who thinks being a “verified reporter” makes him important recently used Twitter to try and ruin the life of a Target worker.

Published

A jerk who thinks being a “verified reporter” on Twitter makes him important recently used Twitter to try and ruin the life of a Target worker because she refused to sell him a toothbrush at the price on the tag because the sticker had been improperly affixed to the product.

David Leavitt calls himself an “Award-Winning Multimedia Journalist” on his Twitter account. He claims he has worked for “CBS, AXS, Yahoo, Examiner,” and others. But on Friday, he jumped to that Twitter account imagining that he had a blockbuster story about how a Target outlet in Massachusetts would not sell him an Oral B electronic toothbrush for a penny.

On Friday afternoon, Leavitt was furious when he thought he found a toothbrush listed at one penny, but then discovered that the Target shift manager refused to ring it up for that price because the tag had been improperly affixed to a counter display.

“This Target manager Tori is not honoring the price of their items per Massachusetts law,” the incensed “reporter” wrote adding that he “had to call the police” on the manager.

With his arrogance on full display, Leavitt seemed extra mad because the police told hm they would not arrest Tori or do anything else because he would have to take the retailer to court for redress.

Leavitt may have thought he would get the love of anti-capitalists everywhere for his attack on Tori and her store, but Twitter saw the “reporter’s” story a bit differently. Indeed, most Twitter users thought that the person in the wrong here was Leavitt, not Tori.

Leavitt was ripped to pieces by people wondering why he was trying to destroy the life of a poor store manager. Others sided with Tori because Leavitt was exactly the type of jerkoff customer that all retail workers dread.

Here is a sample of some of those Twitter users who took a swipe at Leavitt:

Needless to say, there are thousands of Tweets like this. Leavitt got absolutely no support for his quest to destroy Tori’s life.

And then there was the guy who realized that Leavitt claimed he had not been to a dentist for “three years” but who found a post Leavitt made just over a year and a half ago where the “reporter” talked about going to a dentist:

So, did this “reporter” lie? Has it been “over three years” since he went to a dentist, or not?

Yes, the media really is full of creeps like this, isn’t it?

Still, when all is said and done, this may end hp helping young Tori out. Someone stated a “Tori Vacation Fund” on GoFundMe and it already has more than $14,000 in donations pledged to it!

Finally, here are some screen shots of Leavitt’s tweets, just in case he realizes what an ass he looks like and deletes them:

Horror Writer Stephen King Facing Backlash for Saying ‘Quality’ Matters Over ‘Diversity’

 Stephen King, the legendary horror writer and virulently liberal anti-Trumper, is facing a backlash from his left-wing fans.

Stephen King, the legendary horror writer and virulently liberal anti-Trumper, is facing a backlash from his left-wing fans after he said that “quality” should be more important than “diversity” in entertainment.

King made his comments after the announcements of the Oscar nominations that proved to be severely lacking in minority nominees.

King saw his extremely liberal fan base complaining about the very white Oscar nominations. And King waded in to tell his fans what part he has in the Motion Picture Academy.

“As a writer, I am allowed to nominate in just 3 categories: Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Original Screenplay. For me, the diversity issue — as it applies to individual actors and directors, anyway — did not come up. That said… I would never consider diversity in matters of art. Only quality. It seems to me that to do otherwise would be wrong,” King tweeted.

But the Shinning writer quickly found his fans on the attack.

The editor of Zora magazine was one fan who took a shot at the It scribe.

“With the utmost respect, I think this is quite a bit unfair. When films created by people of color, irrespective of quality, constantly get overlooked by institutions that are predominately comprised of white men, there is an implicit bias at work here,” she tweeted.

Other hardcore liberals piled on:

It wasn’t long before King was trying to walk back his previous statements… at least a bit:

260 Million Christians Face ‘High Levels Of Persecution’

“It is worth noting that in eight of the top ten countries where Christian persecution is highest, Islamist ideology is the prime driver of the hostility.”

Published

on

260 million Christians face ‘extreme’, ‘very high’, or ‘high’ levels of persecution.

Growing pressure on Christians in China, Algeria, Burkina Faso, according to the 2020 Open Doors World Watch List. Christians face severe persecution in 73 countries.

“The church is alive. The church is active. The church is growing. And that’s why the church is persecuted,” says Open Doors in its 2020 report. “The persecution of Christians is getting more severe than ever, affecting increasing numbers of believers around the world.”

Each year, Open Doors releases the World Watch List, an annual look at the 50 places where following Jesus costs the most. This year, join David Curry as he takes into the story behind some of the numbers, and looks at how pressure changes the Church.

Breitbart:

Christian persecution around the globe reached an unprecedented level at the end of 2019, with over 260 million Christians facing “high levels of persecution,” Open Doors revealed Wednesday.

In its World Watch List 2020, Open Doors notes that one in 8 believers around the world suffers serious levels of persecution, while providing an in-depth look at the 50 countries where it is most dangerous to be a Christian.

In a nutshell, the new report reveals, every day, eight Christians are killed because of their faith and 23 Christians are raped or sexually harassed; every week, 182 Christian churches or buildings are attacked and 102 Christian homes, shops or businesses are attacked, burned, or destroyed; every month, 309 Christians are imprisoned unjustly.

The most acute persecution of Christians occurs in North Korea, the report found, but Afghanistan is close behind in the number two slot.

In the case of North Korea, persecution is driven by a virulent atheistic Communist ideology which views the estimated 200,000 to 400,000 Christians as traitors of the state because their allegiance is to God, not supreme leader Kim Jong Un. Moreover, they also form part of the lowest “hostile class” in the country’s social stratification system called Songbun. More

Rather than helping peaceful Christians that are persecuted around the world, western governments insist on helping Muslims! Print off the report from Open Doors and provide it to your Pastor and church leadership. If this is not being discussed from the pulpit, ask your church leadership why it is not.

Iran Openly Recruiting Suicide Bombers to Attack U.S.A.

Iran is now openly advertising for suicide bombers to volunteer to attack American forces, even inside the U.S. itself.

Published

Iran is now openly advertising for suicide bombers to volunteer to attack American forces, even inside the U.S. itself.

Students at Iran’s Islamic Azad University are finding flyers urging them to end their lives for the Mullahs, according to the New York Post.

“Registration for volunteers to commit a suicide attack against the United States and Israel,” the flier says. “Hard revenge is underway for those criminals who killed Qassem Soleimani.”

The flyer also claims to quote Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and urges students to “kill all infidels.”

The flyer includes a section for hopeful suicide bombers to fill in their names and personal information. They are also asked to “tell us about your talents.”

The existence of the flyer was first reported by the Iranian media.

As the Post reported:

A translation of the call to action from Farsi was provided to The Post by escaped Iranian dissident Amir-Abbas Fakhravar. Fakhravar is a longtime pro-Democracy activist currently serving as a chairman of the National Iranian Congress, a quasi-government in exile currently operated out of Washington D.C. He is also an adjunct professor in the Texas state university system.

Sources in Iran say that the flyers were handed out by student cells of Basij, the militia arm of the Iranian revolutionary guard.

“This office is kind of like the gestapo for the regime. They are not fully on the payroll of the regime, but the regime pays them for their projects. When there is a protest somewhere, they are going to crack down on the people and then they get money,” Fakhravar told The Post.

“When I was in medical school in Iran, I had a huge fight with the Basij office. I was ultimately charged with insulting the Supreme Leader,” Fakhravarsaid. “For decades they have been recruiting for terrorist attacks for this type of things.

The chief of the Basij, Brigadier General Gholamreza Soleimani (no relation to Qassem), was appointed directly by Ayatollah Khamenei.
