1. Some Wonder If IRS Scandal Began With Goolsbee's Remark On Koch Taxes

“Treasury Department investigators completed but never released a 2011 law enforcement probe of White House economic advisor Austan Goolsbee, The Washington Examiner has learned.” – Washington Examiner

“The investigation by the Treasury Department Inspector-General for Tax Administration was sparked by Goolsbee's remarks during an Aug. 27, 2010, White House news briefing in which he appeared to possess confidential tax information on Koch Industries, the private conglomerate controlled by the Koch brothers, Charles and David.

‘So in this country we have partnerships, we have S corps, we have LLCs, we have a series of entities that do not pay corporate income tax. Some of which are really giant firms, you know Koch Industries is a multi-billion dollar business,’ Goolsbee said.
It is illegal for government officials to make public confidential tax information. Goolsbee was chief White House economist at the time.” . . . Read More

2.  Don’t Blame The Media For Not Pursuing News Stories . . . Blame Republicans!

"The other day, MSNBC’s Karen Finney was on her network discussing the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups." - Bernard Goldberg

"As the National Journal’s Ron Fournier quickly pointed out, Finney’s premise was false. While Darrell Issa and others in Congress were indeed aware of a potential investigation last year, there were no facts made available from the investigation prior to the 2012 election. The investigation itself wasn’t even confirmed until a couple of weeks ago. Thus, it’s pretty ridiculous for someone to claim that ‘everybody’ knew about it, when very few people actually did.

This column isn’t about Finney’s inaccuracy, however. After all, that kind of thing isn’t all that surprising coming from an MSNBC host. No, this column is about the mindset Finney seems to share with several of her media colleagues.

Over the past nine months or so, we’ve seen an odd initiative set forth by journalists and commentators to justify the news media’s lack of interest in legitimate stories (specifically those surrounding Obama administration scandals) by criticizing how Republican politicians have reacted to those stories." . . .

3. Benghazi Suspects ID’d, But Obama Administration Just Doesn't Want To Nab Them. Whose Running The Country, CAIR?

Doesn’t want to send them to Gitmo, or is CAIR running the country?

“Despite the fact that the Obama administration regularly strike at terrorists with lethal drone hits in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia, the White House is reportedly not rounding up five suspects identified in the Benghazi attack because of a lack of evidence to try them in civilian court.

The Associated Press cites officials who said there is enough evidence to seize the men as enemy combatants and send them to Guantanamo Bay.

But apparently the Obama administration wants civilian trials for anyone involved in the Benghazi attack and has sent the FBI back to collect more evidence, which could be challenging in a more tumultuous Libya today.” . . . Read More


4. Disarming Realities: As Gun Sales Soar, Gun Crimes Plummet

A couple of new studies reveal the gun-control pushers 'worst nightmare'

“According to DOJ’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. gun-related homicides dropped 39 percent over the course of 18 years, from 18,253 during 1993, to 11,101 in 2011. During the same period, non-fatal firearm crimes decreased even more, a whopping 69 percent. The majority of those declines in both categories occurred during the first 10 years of that time frame. Firearm homicides declined from 1993 to 1999, rose through 2006, and then declined again through 2011. Non-fatal firearm violence declined from 1993 through 2004, then fluctuated in the mid-to-late 2000s.” . . . Read More

5.  Obama Administration Fought To Keep Rosen Warrant Secret

“Yet another development today in the case of James Rosen, the Fox News reporter who was monitored by the Justice Dept. after receiving classified information from a State Department security adviser.” – Dylan Byers

“According to The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza, the Obama administration fought to keep the search warrant for Rosen’s private e-mail account secret on the grounds that they might need to monitor the account for a long period of time.

"Ronald C. Machen, Jr., the U.S. Attorney who is prosecuting Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, a former State Department adviser who allegedly leaked classified information to Rosen, insisted that the reporter should not be notified of the search and seizure of his e-mails, even after a lengthy delay," Lizza writes, citing a court filing.” . . .

6.  Democrats Moving To Increase Voter Fraud

“A conservative activist is outraged that the Colorado Legislature has passed a bill that will almost certainly increase the chances of voter fraud in the state.” - OneNewsNow

"With the bill that Colorado Democrats recently pushed through, voters would be allowed to register up until Election Day and still cast their ballots. It is the latest move by Democrats to fight Republican efforts to require identification at polling places to purge rolls of suspect voters.

Knight, Robert (ACRU)Robert Knight, senior fellow and executive director at The American Civil Rights Union (ACRU), says requiring voters to present a photo ID is just common sense.  'Requiring photo ID and making sure the voter rolls are cleaned up would prevent any vote fraud,' he contends.  And he deems the Democrats' push to allow late registration wrongheaded." . . .

7.  The New American Gender-Neutral Army

Political chaos is connected with the decay of language - George Orwell

"If language is meaning, then political chaos is the destruction of meaning. Political language exists to destroy meaning and to make unpopular policies seem popular by associating them with the very opposite of what they are.

Taxes are opportunities. Spending is stimulus. Amnesty is reform. The left is as good at language as it is bad at governing. It can’t change reality, but it excels at changing the description of reality. Common sense is the enemy of the left and the left defeats common sense by corrupting language so that nothing makes sense and common sense can never come into play.

The proposal to put women into combat is a transparently bad idea for reasons of common sense. Without an ongoing conflict and with deep cuts to the military, there is no shortage of manpower that requires desperate measures and compromised standards.  There is no reasonable reason for it all except the need to transform the military from a warfighting force into a beacon of liberal values." . . .

8.  New York Times Lawyer: Obama Worse Than Nixon, 'Worst President Ever' On Press Freedom

“James Goodale, the lawyer for The New York Times in the Pentagon Papers case against the Nixon administration, declared in the Times on Tuesday that Obama is going to be worse than Nixon.”NewsBusters

James Goodale, the lawyer for The New York Times in the Pentagon Papers case against the Nixon administration, declared in the Times on Tuesday that Obama is going to be worse than Nixon.” – NewsBusters

"Until President Obama came into office, no one thought talking or emailing was not protected by the First Amendment. President Obama wants to criminalize the reporting of national security information. This will stop reporters from asking for information that might be classified. Leaks will stop and so will the free flow of information to the public.

I've written that the administration action against Julian Assange in the Wikileaks case was a clarion call to journalists. Now, the Rosen case shows, it may be too late.

The A.P. case is more evidence of President Obama's dismissal of the First Amendment in national security cases. There was no need to subpoena The A.P. without telling The A.P. And there was no need to subpoena scores of telephone records of A.P. reporters. The subpoena was over-broad." . . . Read More


9.  Court Rules Obama Department Of Homeland Security Violated FOIA With Stealth Amnesty Secrecy

“Judicial Watch announced today that the United States District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the Obama Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had failed to comply with the Freedom of Information Act” – Judicial Watch

“The Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit concerns a DHS policy, implemented by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which led to the reduction of the deportation docket in Houston, Texas, by dismissing pending enforcement proceedings against illegal immigrants who DHS claimed did not have serious criminal records.  Judicial Watch subsequently uncovered records showing that multiple deportation cases were dismissed against illegal immigrants who had committed serious felonies.

The litigation has increased significance with the Obama administration’s large scale suspension of deportations and, most recently, the release of thousands of criminal illegal aliens due to alleged sequester budget cuts. According to The Associated Press, since mid-February, the Obama administration has released more than 2,000 illegal immigrants facing deportation from jail. Reports indicate that it plans to release 3,000 more during March.” . . . Read More

What will America look like under a second Obama presidency?  If you don't have a clue, you better find one! Check alpha by state/city where this film is playing before November 6, 2012. Unofficial bio of Gerald R. Molen. A picture is worth a thousand words!  This photo was not actually aT the White House, but, regardless of WHERE it was taken, the fact is that he cancelled the National Day of Prayer, said that we are no longer a Christian nation, and has no problem taking part in Muslim prayer.  U.S. President Barack Obama bows to Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio at MacDill Air Force Base on January 28, 2010, in Tampa, Florida.   Iorio had honored CAIR annually in Tampa with its own day in November 2008, acknowledging the large amout of Muslims living in the area. "Ayers, now a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, claims to abhor nostalgia ("Nothing is more boring than some old person going on and on about the way things used to be"). But he has been thinking lately about the past—both his and the country's—and soon he will likely be engaged in what he calls "a dialogue" about the sixties, the antiwar movement, and the radical life he led. The spur for this dialogue will be the publication of Fugitive Days (Beacon Press, $24), a memoir Ayers has written about the trajectory of his life, from a pampered son of the Chicago suburbs to a young pacifist to a founder of one of the most radical political organizations in U.S. history."  Allow video to download and start in Window's Media player. “The North American jet that flew Obama and his traveling crew around for much of the primary season was refurbished with new seats and power for each passenger a must on the campaign trail. And the plane that once had an American flag on its tail now sports the Obama ‘O.’”
