Politico Exclusive: ‘Lois Lerner breaks silence’

U.S. Director of Exempt Organizations for the IRS Lerner is sworn in to testify before a House Committee hearing in Washington

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS.

Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m proud of my career and the job I did for this country.”

“We followed the trail where it leads, and we saw it lead to Lois Lerner,” House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said at a hearing Thursday. “She refers with disdain to conservatives; she’s an active liberal; and it’s clear her actions were set out to be detrimental to conservatives.”

I wonder who is calling her a ‘Dirty Jew’? The only anti-Semites I ever see are on the left.

Very few details of Lerner’s personal history, professional background or life since her fall have been detailed in the news media. One thing is clear: She doesn’t seem poised to back down or give her Republican critics in Congress any satisfaction.

“Regardless of whatever else happens, I know I did the best I could under the circumstances and am not sorry for anything I did,” the 63-year-old said.

On May 22, 2013, Lerner returned to the seeming safety of her IRS office after invoking the Fifth Amendment and being chased down a Capitol Hill hallway by the Washington press corps.

Instead, she was summoned by the human resources department and ordered to resign or clean out her desk by 2 p.m. and be escorted from the building on indefinite administrative leave. She refused to resign.”

More Evidence That A Hillary Presidency Would Be Worse For America Than Obama

Saul Alinsky and Chicago are the things that connect Clinton and Obama. They were both heavily influenced by Alinsky’s writings and speeches. Clinton wrote her thesis at Wellesley College on him. Obama allegedly taught Alinsky’s teachings.

Clinton is not as lazy as Obama. He has set the foundation for her to build on.

Read the dedication page in Alinsky’s ‘Rules For Radicals’. Here is how he dedicates the book:

Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”

He meant it, otherwise he would not have done it.

The Hillary Letters

Hillary Clinton, Saul Alinsky correspondence revealed

NOTE: READ THE HILLARY CLINTON-SAUL ALINSKY LETTERS HERE.

Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development.

Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing.

Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.”

The United Kingdom Gets Less Than Three Percent If Its Electricity From Wind

This information comes from the UK National Grid Status website. There they give us a daily tally of the electrical demands and the amount that is supplied by each different source. Wind powere is in last place, of course, and by a very wide margin. Wind provides 2.93% of needs. The second-to-last is nuclear power which provides 15.84% of what is necessary.

UKwind

Wikipedia tells us that the UK has 5,276 wind generators:

Two of the wind turbines at the Black Law Wind Farm in Scotland

Two of the wind turbines at the Black Law Wind Farm in Scotland

The UK is one of the best locations for wind power in the world, and is considered to be the best in Europe.[1] [2] Wind power delivers a growing fraction of the energy in the United Kingdom and at the beginning of January 2014, wind power in the United Kingdom consisted of 5,276 wind turbines with a total installed capacity of over 10 gigawatts…

Curious about the return that wind turbine farms provide I found at Ask.com that they are expensive:

The cost analysis of a wind turbine would depend on whether it is used for commercial or personal use. Commercial wind turbines can cost upwards of 2 million dollars plus maintenance.”

My little calculator tells us that 5,276 turbines which cost $2 Million each equals an expenditure of… well my calculator won’t work in numbers that large. It gives me an ‘Error’ message. But it looks like more than ten billion dollars.

The Wikipedia article cited above tells us that these turbines are capable of, “…over 10 gigawatts.” The data from the UK National Grid article shows us that they are falling mighty short of that figure. They are actually producing a little over one-tenth of it – 1.10 GW.

The ten gigawatt figure seems to be wildly optimistic. Perhaps it was provided by the companies that supplied them. More likely it was a combination of them and the Green lobby. Regardless, it seems that the United Kingdom was sold a bill of goods. I wonder of the good citizens there are at all aware of these numbers.

I suspect we have that same thing going on in the United States but on a much larger scale.

Obama Has Been Funding Terrorists

Stockman moves to block Obama’s illegal transfer of $440 million to HAMAS-connected government

Rep. Steve Stockman

Rep. Steve Stockman

Stop Funding Terrorism Act” blocks “any direct United States assistance, loan guarantee, or debt relief to the Palestinian Authority, or any affiliated governing entity or leadership organization”

Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX 36) Tuesday filed legislation blocking the Obama administration’s funding of the joint Palestinian Authority-HAMAS interim government.

The “Stop Funding Terrorism Act” blocks “any direct United States assistance, loan guarantee, or debt relief to the Palestinian Authority, or any affiliated governing entity or leadership organization.” It is the House companion to Senator Rand Paul’s (R-KY) “Stand With Israel Act.”

The Obama administration announced June 2 that Obama would recognize and finance the Palestinian government, which was jointly organized with HAMAS terrorists. That announcement violates a federal law prohibiting any support to HAMAS.

“Barack Obama broke the law to funnel $440 million a year to terrorists committed to killing Jews. If federal law isn’t clear enough to President Obama, perhaps we need to be more direct,” said Stockman. “The ‘Stop Funding Terrorism Act’ removes any loopholes Obama is using to give U.S. taxpayer dollars to terrorist groups.”

Run, Bernie, Run!

Bernie Sanders is an avowed Socialist. He calls himself an Independent. But, as we have seen, the Democrat party has moved far to the left in the past several years, moving closer to Sanders’ socialist ideology.

Sanders considering 2016 run as Democrat

Sen. Bernie Sanders said on Sunday he’s considering running for president in 2016, but maybe not as an independent.

“The issue is setting up the infrastructure of running,” the independent senator from Vermont said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “One of the reasons I’m going to Iowa is to get a sense of how people feel about it.”

Sanders said he believes more people are frustrated with their political parties and could align with an independent presidential candidate but that setting up the infrastructure needed for a serious candidacy throughout the states could be difficult.

Whether he runs for president as a Democrat, he said, doesn’t have anything to do with whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton runs.

“The issue is not Hillary. I’ve known Hillary Clinton for many years. I have a lot of respect for Hillary Clinton,” Sanders said. “The question is at a time when so many people have seen a decline in their standard of living, when the wealthiest people and the largest corporations are doing phenomenally well, the American people want change.”

“Theatre of the Absurd”, The Federal Government Outlaws Prepping

They term it ‘Hoarding’. Why? Because that word has a negative meaning that ‘Prepping’ does not.
This article begins with a description of government ‘Concerns’ about people who are saving, ‘Hoarding’, money rather than spending it. The writer then goes on to describe how the stage has been set to outlaw the hoarding of money, food, water, or ammunition.

money-under-mattress

This week the Federal Reserve published a report that claims to have figured it out and it turns out that the renewed economic downturn has nothing to do with foreign outsourcing, high taxation, increased health care costs for business or rising consumer prices for food and energy.
No, according to the Fed it is your fault. Apparently, you are not spending enough money. In order for the economy to recover you need to stop hoarding cash now and get out there and start buying more homes, cars, vacations, and electronics. Otherwise, you’ll only have yourself to blame when the system comes unhinged.
From the St. Louis Federal Reserve:

The issue has to do with the velocity of money, which has never been constant, as can be seen in the figure below . If for some reason the money velocity declines rapidly during an expansionary monetary policy period, it can offset the increase in money supply and even lead to deflation instead of inflation.

During the first and second quarters of 2014, the velocity of the monetary base2 was at 4.4, its slowest pace on record. This means that every dollar in the monetary base was spent only 4.4 times in the economy during the past year, down from 17.2 just prior to the recession. This implies that the unprecedented monetary base increase driven by the Fed’s large money injections through its large-scale asset purchase programs has failed to cause at least a one-for-one proportional increase in nominal GDP. Thus, it is precisely the sharp decline in velocity that has offset the sharp increase in money supply, leading to the almost no change in nominal GDP.”

Going on to the problem of people hoarding other things:

In 2012 President Obama signed a an Executive Doomsday Order that was designed specifically to target “hoarders” during a national emergency:

While millions of people have been preparing for the possibility of a catastrophic event by relocating to rural homesteads or farms, as well as stockpiling food, water, personal defense armaments and other essential supplies with the intention of utilizing these preparations if the worst happens, the latest executive order signed by President Obama on March 16, 2012 makes clear that in the event of a nationally deemed emergency all of these resources will fall under the authority of the United States government.
The signing of the National Defense Resources Preparedness executive order grants the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Labor, the Department of Defense and other agencies complete control of all US resources, including the ability to seize, confiscate or re-delegate resources, materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense as delegated by the following agencies…”

So the President can simply say that anything more than (for example) a week’s supply of food (and all the other things listed) is an amount ‘in excess of the reasonable demands of personal consumption’ and then order the Army to impound everything you have in excess of that amount.”

“The Government Is Ready…Are You?”

It’s not just federal agencies, either. Every little podunk town can get free war materiel from the feds – and many are. Here are a couple of related stories:

1.

An Open Letter To My Friends In Law Enforcement

Let me just be blunt: ever since Ronald Reagan left office, both Republican and Democrat presidential administrations–along with both Republican and Democrat congresses–in Washington, D.C. are turning the United States of America into a giant Police State. And that means that our local and State police agencies are being transformed before our very eyes into the enforcement arm of this burgeoning Police State. And one of the biggest reasons for this growing threat to our liberties is that it seems that you–our local and State police officers and sheriff’s deputies–do not understand that you are the ones who are being used to create this nefarious Police State.”

And:

THE PENTAGON IS GIVING GRENADE LAUNCHERS TO CAMPUS POLICE

It’s clear why a review of the program is in order, because it isn’t clear at all what sort of equipment these colleges are receiving. David Perry, the president of the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators, told Politico that 1033 mostly funnels “small items” to college police forces for daily use. These could be anything from office supplies or uniforms or car parts, but it’s probably not all that tame. Campus Safety magazine recommends that universities take part in the 1033 program to cover a range of needs from storage units to grenade launchers. That is, after all, what the program was designed to achieve.”

“Marxist Feminism’s Ruined Lives”

feminists

Mallory Millett, writing in Front Page Mag, tells us that she, at the insistence of her sister Kate, was present at the beginning of the National Organization of Women in the sixties. Her piece is fairly long and covers a lot of history. She describes the first organizational meeting she attended.

It was 1969. Kate invited me to join her for a gathering at the home of her friend, Lila Karp. They called the assemblage a “consciousness-raising-group,” a typical communist exercise, something practiced in Maoist China. We gathered at a large table as the chairperson opened the meeting with a back-and-forth recitation, like a Litany, a type of prayer done in Catholic Church. But now it was Marxism, the Church of the Left, mimicking religious practice:

“Why are we here today?” she asked.
“To make revolution,” they answered.
“What kind of revolution?” she replied.
“The Cultural Revolution,” they chanted.
“And how do we make Cultural Revolution?” she demanded.
“By destroying the American family!” they answered.
“How do we destroy the family?” she came back.
“By destroying the American Patriarch,” they cried exuberantly.
“And how do we destroy the American Patriarch?” she replied.
“By taking away his power!”
“How do we do that?”
“By destroying monogamy!” they shouted.
“How can we destroy monogamy?”

Their answer left me dumbstruck, breathless, disbelieving my ears. Was I on planet earth? Who were these people?

“By promoting promiscuity, eroticism, prostitution and homosexuality!” they resounded.”

She then goes on to describe the desperate lives many of those women lived in later years:

I’ve known women who fell for this creed in their youth who now, in their fifties and sixties, cry themselves to sleep decades of countless nights grieving for the children they’ll never have and the ones they coldly murdered because they were protecting the empty loveless futures they now live with no way of going back. “Where are my children? Where are my grandchildren?” they cry to me.”

There is more – a lot more. It all sounds so sad.

Marie Harf Gets All Pissy About Bill O’Reilly Comment

What did Fox News’ O’Reilly say that got her knickers in a wad? Commenting about Jen Psaki he said this:

With all due respect . . . that woman looks way out of her depth over there. Just the way she delivers . . . it doesn’t look like she has the gravitas for that job.”

Text:

When the anchor of a leading cable news show uses, quite frankly, sexist, personally offensive language that I actually don’t think they would ever use about a man against a person that shares this podium with me, I think I have an obligation . . . to step up and say that’s not okay.

And, quite frankly, I wish that more people would step up when men say those things about women in public positions and say that it’s not okay.”

Harf, or whatever her real name is, has learned well at her bosses feet. If you want to shut down someone – about anything – you yell, “Racist”. – or in her case, “Sexist”.

In Harf’s over-the-top complaint we get a good look of what we can expect if Hillary Clinton becomes President.

“11-year-old to be expelled for bringing a virtual gun to a virtual school?”

The kid is attending school over the web. He has offended the tender sensibilities of the Principal of the online school because he uses an avatar that contains an image of a gun.

melissa_horn

Meet Melissa A. Horn. She’s the 40-year-old Wisconsin school principal who’s currently bullying an 11-year-old boy over a tiny picture of a gun and an American flag on the computer he uses only at home.

The boy, Matthew, is “attending” — through distance learning, via computer — Wisconsin Virtual Learning, a 4K-12K virtual school run as an online pubic charter school by the Northern Ozaukee School District.

This story was broken on August 29 by conservative Wisconsin talk-radio host Vicki McKenna. Her August 29 shows covered extensively how Matthew, a Second Amendment enthusiast, has been threatened with expulsion for using a tiny picture of a gun and an American flag as his online avatar in a e-mail to his “Student Learning Advocate.”

Maryland: “Sheriff Warns Feds: Attempt To Disarm Citizens Would Lead To “All-Out Civil War””

Is this a warning? It sure sounds like one. Will federal agents heed it when they get their orders?

Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis

Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis

Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis, a sheriff in the state of Maryland, recently reminded the citizens of his county that he will not violate the Constitution and warned the federal government that any attempt to disarm Americans will result in an all-out Civil War.

“I made a vow and a commitment,” Lewis said. “As long as I am sheriff of this county, I will not allow the federal government to come in here and strip my citizens of the right to bear arms.”

“I can tell you this,” Lewis said, “if they attempt to do that, it will be an all-out civil war. No question about it.”

FBI Domestic Threat Assessment Doesn’t Mention Islam

The sixty-page document, titled, “2013 National Threat Assessment For Domestic Extremism”, was released on August 13. It lists several groups that might be a threat to Americans. Nowhere do they include Muslims or Islamists. The groups they are concerned about include

…anti-government militia groups and white supremacy extremists, along with “sovereign citizen” nationalists, and anarchists. Other domestic threat groups outlined by the FBI assessment include violent animal rights and environmentalist extremists, black separatists, anti- and pro-abortion activists, and Puerto Rican nationalists.”

fbi treat assessment

It appears that every bureaucracy in Washington has become politicized to the point that they are impotent – except when it comes to assisting Democrats. The FBI is supposed to investigate crimes and help ensure that they don’t happen. Instead they are watching peaceful people and ignoring the violent ones.

Laws are being broken every day by Democrat operatives and officials – even the President. All that is small potatoes. Yep, the real problem is people like Cliven Bundy.

EPA Chief Says Her Job Is To Bring Justice To ‘People Of Color’

Just as NASA has been repurposed to provide outreach to Muslims, the Environmental Protection Agency is not about the environment. It’s about ‘Justice’ for blacks.

EPA head Gina McCarthy

EPA head Gina McCarthy

The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed global warming regulations aren’t just about stemming global temperature rises — according to agency’s chief, they are also about “justice” for “communities of color.”

“Carbon pollution standards are an issue of justice,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy in a teleconference call with environmental activists. “If we want to protect communities of color, we need to protect them from climate change.”

McCarthy is referring to the EPA’s proposed rule that would limit carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. The agency says the rule will not only help fight global warming, but will also improve public health as coal-fired power plants are shuttered. McCarthy, however, put special emphasis on how the rule would reduce asthma rates, which affect African-American children.”

That makes us all feel better, right?

No. It’s BS. It’s all about charging businesses for alleged ‘Pollution’ of carbon dioxide. That money will go to the government for dolts like this to use. It will also destroy jobs.

CBC Wants Federal Control Of Local Police

elijah_cummings_gty_605-550x298

The Congressional Black Caucus wants President Obama to appoint a ‘Police Czar’. They say they want to prevent ‘More Ferguson’s’. That could mean that they want looting stopped but I take that to mean they want a task force to prevent young black men from getting shot by white cops.

Speaking for the CBC, Rep. Elijah Cummings believes that this utopia can be attained if only the federal government is given just a little more control over Americans.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, along with other members of the Congressional Black Caucus, sent a letter Monday to President Barack Obama, urging the administration to pursue changes to local law enforcement structure to “prevent more Fergusons,” including a federal czar to oversee local law enforcement.

“The administration must quickly establish a national commission to review existing police policies and practices,” the letter reads. “And identify the best policies and practices that can prevent more Fergusons and vastly improve policing in communities across the nation.”

In addition to the commission, the letter calls for the appointment of a federal czar within the Justice Department to monitor and oversee local police departments that receive federal funding.”

OK. Now I understand. They want this oversight under the control of the Department of Justice whose head is Eric Holder.

Bad idea… as a matter of fact it’s a terrible idea. Holder has shown himself to be uninterested in justice. He is a revolutionary whose focus is on control. That is not American.

“Why I’m no longer president of the Green Party of Canada”

Another one from Canadian Bob. This is from the Canadian Jewish News:

Paul Estrin

Paul Estrin

My name is Paul Estrin. Until Aug. 5, I was the president of the Green Party of Canada.

On July 25, I published a blog on the party’s website entitled “Why Gaza makes me sad.” My comments were moderate in nature. The essential point I conveyed was that I was, and still am, saddened by what is happening in Gaza. By highlighting Hamas’ cynical tactics, I was trying to show that the conflict is not black and white – a thesis in opposition to what other members of the party seemed to be suggesting.

Sadly, my moderate article criticizing a violent terrorist group could not be tolerated by a majority of the party membership. The article was eventually removed from the website – there was apparently no room within the party for dialogue – but not before some online commenters issued threats about my personal safety. Those comments concern me a great deal.

Ultimately, my dissenting view led to me being drummed out of my position.”

Estrin, a Jew, was drummed out of the Green party because he supported Israel’s right to exist. The Green party, like other leftist groups, is based on a requirement that members exhibit a blind support for the far left, anti-Semitic of their supporters. As we see, it’s not enough to be the national head. Everyone has to toe the line established but those providing the funding.

How many know that George Soros, a Jew, joined forces with Nazis during WWII to root out other Jews? He is a self-loathing Jew. He finances anti-Semitic groups.

14,646 duplicate voters flagged in Virginia, Maryland

Those people registered the same voter many times – as many as 72 times has been documented. Allk those registrations are still on the books.

An election-integrity group is challenging the status of nearly 15,000 voters reportedly registered in both Fairfax County and Maryland.

Virginia Voters Alliance on Wednesday urged Fairfax’s electoral board to do what state officials have so far not done across the commonwealth: Purge those duplicate voters.

VVA President Reagan George complained the state Department of Elections is classifying all duplicate registrations as “inactive voters.”

That means 43,896 voters alleged to be registered in both Virginia and Maryland would stay in Virginia’s statewide database — and remain eligible to vote — until 2019.”

Here Is The Real Story About The Michael Brown Robbery Video

Eric Holder’s Department of Justice told Ferguson Police To NOT Release the video

The video below, from the store’s surveillance cameras, allegedly shows Brown strong-arming the person at the store. It doesn’t justify his getting shot. More investigation needs to be done before the shooting can be classed as justified or unjustified.

The real, big, story is that the DOJ told the police to not release the video. What could have been their motive for making this demand?

The DOJ does not represent justice. They represent lies and distortions in the name of skin color.

Goldie Taylor is an MSNBC contributor who’s followed this case closely. She tries to spin it as evidence that the Ferguson police were acting rashly in releasing the video, but doesn’t it show that the Obama administration is trying to keep information away from the public?”

“EPA Blames Texas For Illinois Air Pollution”

EPA Administratrix Gina McCarthy

EPA Administratrix Gina McCarthy

These federal agencies are out of control. The IRS has been targeting conservative groups, Homeland Security is doing everything it can to reduce security in the homeland, and the Environmental Protection Agency is trying to shut down every successful entity in the country. Now they are going after the state of Texas.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is blaming power plants in Texas for Illinois air pollution and is using the accusation to justify restrictions on Texas power plants. EPA claims its cross-state pollution rule, intended to protect communities in one state from pollution drifting from other states, justifies placing restrictions on Texas power plants EPA claims are polluting Granite City, Illinois.

EPA’s assertion Texas power plants are causing Illinois pollution raised eyebrows for several reasons. Granite City is approximately 500 miles from the Texas border and even farther away from Lone Star State major metropolitan regions. Granite City is northeast of Texas, with prevailing winds rarely trekking in that direction from Texas. In addition, a local steel mill, which has been an important source of the town’s prosperity since the 1890s, has long been recognized as a primary source of air pollution in Granite City.

EPA, however, claims it has devised computer models that indicate some sulfur dioxide from Texas power plants may reach Granite City, which has a population of 30,000.”

They have devised, “Computer models”. Again, the scientists have come up with a theory and then found, or manufactured, evidence to support their position. This is quite common in the environmental movement and their assertions are always wrong. This one is as well.

Texas was only included in portions of the rule based on the projected impact on a single county in Illinois. And the air quality monitor in Illinois which EPA claims had the fingerprints of Texas pollution on it was located right next to a smelter. On this thin legal reed the EPA is imposing restrictions on Texas several times as severe as states with much more significant interstate pollution problems,” said Kathleen White, director of the Armstrong Center for Energy and the Environment at Texas Public Policy Foundation.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) agreed, saying EPA failed to account properly for the steel mill’s influence on Granite City’s air pollution. Of the three air pollution monitors in the town and surrounding Madison County, the only one allegedly linked to Texas is the one downwind of the steel mill.”

Phony data from a flawed source. That’s typical of the environmentalists and the Obama administration in general.

National Review: “Obama’s Treachery and Republican Silence”

Horowitz has a unique insight into the actions of the left. He was raised by parents who were communists. From Wiki: “Between 1956 and 1975, Horowitz was an outspoken adherent of the New Left before rejecting leftism completely.”

The worst part of this is the part about Republican silence.

obama gives us the finger_thumb[41]

When will they stop pretending this is a normal presidency?”

By David Horowitz

Barack Obama deliberately set out to lose the war in Iraq, and he did. He defied the advice of his joint chiefs of staff to secure America’s formidable military presence and keep 20,000 troops in country, and left Iraq to its own devices and the tender mercies of Iran. In doing so, he betrayed every American and Iraqi who gave his life to create a free Iraq and keep it out of the clutches of the terrorists.

Iraq is now a war zone dominated by the terrorist forces of the Islamic State, whose rise Obama’s policies fostered. Both his secretaries of state praised the animal Bashar Assad as a “reformer” and a man of “peace,” helping him to thwart his domestic opposition. The Islamic State was born out of the Syrian chaos that ensued.”

How Should America Deal With Our Lawless President?

Obama-Censure2-G

As RD Walker wrote in an article below, President Obama has jockeyed himself into a position where his opposition, the Republican leadership, has to loudly claim that impeachment is not a possibility. His reasoning is sound as always.

Democrats have set this agenda, giving the President cover against being impeached.

What else can be done?

First let’s examine what the right is worried about. John Fund, in an article for National Review, calls impeachment, “…akin to detonating a nuclear weapon on the field of politics.”. He calls for censure instead. But what would he be censured for?

Obama has been threatening to take action himself to resolve our open border and immigration problems. Most believe that he will sign an order granting the immigrants permission to stay in the country.

But Obama is a revolutionary. He may spend an awful lot of time recreating but he does not shy away from his self-proclaimed goal of remaking the country. It seems that if he has set up this anti-impeachment protection he is planning a serious power grab. What if he didn’t just grant amnesty but, with a stroke of his pen, also granted them citizenship? Including the right to vote?

Who would stop him from doing this? And how would they accomplish it? A bold move like that would catch everyone off guard. It would be illegal, yes. But who would reverse the move, and how? It seems that a censure would be ignored by the President just as Attorney General Holder has ignored being held in contempt of Congress. These revolutionaries are not afraid of contempt charges or censure. The prize is just too important and they are keeping their eyes on it.

Does anyone really think that Speaker Boehner would reverse himself if Obama did something so dramatic and unlawful? Would he say, “I said impeachment was off the table but now it’s back on. We’re pursuing it in the House of Representatives”? I don’t see it. So far Boehner has been acting like an ally to Obama.

What would the people do? At what point would we rebel?

This is conjecture, certainly, but it is based on history. We have watched this President take powers away from the Congress that are ensured by our Constitution and give them to himself. This is not an accident. It is the plan. It is how he intends to ‘Fundamentally Transform’ our country. He has been making the Congress irrelevant and is working to do the same thing to the courts.

These are the three branches of our government. They are supposed to keep each other in check, to make sure one does not become tyrannical. If the Legislative and Judicial branches are emasculated all power will devolve to the third branch, the Executive.

Can this be stopped? How?

“U.S. attorney general to Gov. Rick Scott: We’re watching you”

These are Chicago-style intimidation tactics. Eric Holder is a bully. Scott is up for reelection and recently converted-to-a-Democrat Charlie Crist is running against him.

Holder says he sees racism everywhere. The fact that Florida has tightened up its voting procedures under Scott is enough to get a threat from the head of the Department of Justice. That is the same DOJ that sent people to Florida to help organize demonstrations against George Zimmerman, the man who killed Trayvon Martin, a young black man.

Holder sees everything as a matter of skin color. If he encounters a white person he persecutes them. If he encounters a black person he supports them – all because of skin color. It was his DOJ, also, that refused to prosecute the New Black Panthers members who intimidated voters at a pollin place in Philadelphia.

TALLAHASSEE — As Florida’s next election draws closer, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has a stern warning for Gov. Rick Scott: We’re watching you.

Holder sent a scathing letter to the Republican governor that cited “troubling” voting changes and said the Justice Department is “carefully monitoring” Florida’s upcoming elections.

“We will not hesitate to use all tools and legal authorities at our disposal to fight against racial discrimination, to stand against disenfranchisement and to safeguard the right of every eligible American to cast a ballot,” Holder wrote.

Scott called Holder’s action “pure politics” and said it was “just them trying to help Charlie Crist,” his likely Democratic opponent in November.

Repeatedly chastising Scott, Holder wrote: “During your tenure, your state has repeatedly added barriers to voting and restricted access to the polls.”

“Why Do American Jews Support Obama?”

President Obama has shown himself to be no friend of Israel. He has supported their enemies and has told Jewish leaders that Israel must concede to Hamas, for instance. Under his leadership he has sent money to Hamas but has restricted travel to, and assistance for, Israel. So why do Jews in the United States still support him?

It took a Canadian interviewer to actually ask a Jew that question. Has this question ever been asked by an American news person?

In this case it was asked of Ben Shapiro. Shapiro is a Jew and a conservative. He is also very lucid in his explanation. This is a revealing six minutes. Shapiro shows us why The majority of American Jews will never support conservative principles.

Hat tip to Kate for finding this

In a related manner Kate also has a post that explains the anti-Semitism of the left. She has a link to an article in thee UK Telegraph which explains that it is not a new problem. It is written by Daniel Hannan. Many of you know that Hannan has been warning the world about the left, including President Obama. It begins with this video:


Hannan then goes on to say:

How, as a socialist, can you not be an anti-Semite?” Adolf Hitler asked his party members in 1920. No one thought it an odd question. Anti-Semitism was at that time widely understood to be part of the broader revolutionary movement against markets, property and capital.
The man who coined the term “socialism,” the nineteenth-century French revolutionary, Pierre Leroux, had told his comrades: “When we speak of the Jews, we mean the Jewish spirit – the spirit of profit, of lucre, of gain, of speculation; in a word, the banker’s spirit.”
The man who popularised the term “anti-Semitism” had taken a similar line. Wilhelm Marr, a radical nineteenth-century German Leftist, may not have been the first person to use the word, but he certainly – and approvingly – brought it to a wide audience: “Anti-Semitism is a Socialist movement,” he pronounced, “only nobler and purer in form than Social Democracy”.

So it’s about hate but it’s also about demonizing capitalism. How convenient for Socialists to try to destroy capitalism and to paint Jews as the face of it.
