IRS Smoking Gun?

The American Spectator is posting what could be the smoking gun connecting the White House to the IRS scandal

the very day after the president of the quite publicly anti-Tea Party labor union — the union for IRS employees — met with President Obama, the manager of the IRS “Determinations Unit Program agreed” to open a “Sensitive Case report on the Tea party cases.” As stated by the IG report.

So, it seems that the head of the IRS employees union met with the President the day before the IRS started targeting Tea Party groups.


The IRS scandal with some Nixonian perspective

Scott Johnson over at Power Line has a great write up relative to the IRS scandal.  Nixon’s IRS is a must read.  It puts some historical perspective on the current scandal with the IRS.

At this point, we don’t know who exactly was involved with the current scandal.  But it is appearing that not only was there harassment and intimidation, there also seems to be an attempt to gain specific information on who these groups’ donors were.  Was that an attempt to build an enemies list?  Possibly for retaliation or even intimidation in order to influence an election?

We don’t know yet where this goes, but if it goes as high as anyone in the White House (and it is starting to appear possible), then this truly a scandal of Watergate proportions.

Scandalpalooza bonus – What if the Obama Scandals Had Surfaced Last Fall? John Hinderaker writes a compelling argument that due to Obama’s ability to turn out low-information voters, one scandal breaking might not have made a difference; but three at once?  Who knows?  But the result of what did happen gives us an analogy to 1972.

Managing PR or managing propaganda?

Only in California…

Only in California would I expect flying the American flag to be an “impermissible act of public expression.”

Wisconsin as Ground Zero

Seems I’m not the only one who thinks this thing in Wisconsin could erupt into something much, much larger… Note the title on this blog’s post.

Wisconsin: Catalyst for American Communist Revolution?

Watch this video and you tell me, will this vote in Wisconsin trigger an American Communist Revolution?

Video: Protesters Descend On Wisconsin State Capitol After Union Vote

The people involved have a clearly defined Communist agenda.  This same attempt to usurp Union power is happening in other states, with similar protests.  Watch the videos on the Internet of these people.  Do you think they could turn violent?  I think they very easily could, and will.

Here are some more reports coming in from after the vote:

Senate Republicans were harried by swarming crowds. “We tried to get out of the building after the vote, because they were rushing the chamber, and we were escorted by security through a tunnel system to another building. But, after being tipped off by a Democrat, they mobbed the exit at that building, and were literally trying to break the windows of the cars we were in as we were driving away,” Republican senator Randy Hopper tells NRO. Such tactics, he sighs, were hardly unexpected. “I got a phone call yesterday saying that we should be executed. I’ve had messages saying that they want to beat me with a billy club.” – NRO

I thought only Republicans and Conservatives were violent extremists (sarcasm intended).  Calling state senators and saying they should be executed?  Now that shows a lot of class.  These protests are on the verge of revolutionary violence and Michael Moore isn’t helping any.

“I just want to say anybody who lives within driving distance of Madison, Wisconsin right now should make their way to the capitol. I would love to see thousands of people there right now, in that capitol building, in the rotunda, on the lawn, whatever it takes. Really, this is really — this is war. This is a class war.” – Michael Moore

Now, I will say that he said this should be non-violent, but come on Michael, you know full well that when you say “this is war” and call everyone to come to Madison and protest, that a lot of passionate crazies in one place is a recipe for violence.  For example, consider the following excerpt of a death threat email circulating to Wisconsin GOP State Senators:

We feel that it’s worth our lives to do this, because we would be saving the lives of 300,000 people. Please make your peace with God as soon as possible and say goodbye to your loved ones we will not wait any longer. YOU WILL DIE!!!! – reported by WTMJ

The UN Plan for Global Control

The United Nations plan for global settlements (from 1996, but still relevant)

Some quotes that should be of concern to you:

  • Traditional beliefs simply don’t fit the UN vision for 21st Century communities.
  • Change your whole way of thinking, because the new order of the spirit is confronting and challenging you.
  • The 21st Century city will be a city of social solidarity… We have to redefine the words… [and write a new] social contract.
  • The media must act as part of the education process that counters individualism.
  • What’s needed is an interfaith center in every city of the globe. The new interfaith centers will honor the rituals of every… faith tradition: Islam, Hinduism, Jain, Christian [a cross-less version that blends with other beliefs]… and provide opportunity for sacred expressions needed to bind the people of the planet into a viable, meaningful, and sustainable solidarity.
