Barack Obama, our next President

Wow, This is Pretty Epic

Generally, once partisan, tendentious sources leak information that turns out to be wrong, nothing’s ever done about it. That’s for many reasons, some good or somewhat understandable, mostly bad. But on CBS Evening News tonight, Major Garrett did something I don’t feel like I’ve seen in a really long time or maybe ever on a network news cast. He basically said straight out: Republicans told us these were the quotes, that wasn’t true.

MAJOR GARRETT: Scott, Republicans have claimed that the State Department under Hillary Clinton was trying to protect itself from criticism. The White House released the real e-mails late yesterday and here’s what we found when we compared them to the quotes that had been provided by Republicans. One e-mail was written by Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes. On Friday, Republicans leaked what they said was a quote from Rhodes.“We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don’t want to undermine the FBI investigation.” But it turns out, in the actual e-mail Rhodes did not mention the State Department. It read “We need to resolve this in a way that respects all the relevant equities, particularly the investigation.” Republicans also provided what they said was a quote from an e-mail written by State Department Spokesman Victoria Nuland. The Republican version notes Nuland discussing:“The penultimate point is a paragraph talking about all the previous warnings provided by the Agency (CIA) about al-Qaeda’s presence and activities of al-Qaeda.” The actual e-mail from Nuland says: the “…penultimate point could be abused by Members to beat the State Department for not paying attention to Agency warnings…” The C.I.A. agreed with the concerns raised by the State Department and revised the talking points to make them less specific than the C.I.A.’s original version, eliminating references to al-Qaeda and affiliates and earlier security warnings. There is no evidence, Scott, the White House orchestrated these changes.

And the surviving Boston Marathon bomber scrolled a note that their acts were vengeance for our wars on Muslims, saying when you kill one Muslim, you kill them all. Hell they're doing a pretty good job of killing each other off, we dont' have to do a damn thing.

Cuz it's more fun to talk about impeaching the President. They don't give a damn about poor people, or cancer patients, or pollution or workers! They want to eliminate foodstamps and welfare and medicaide and medicare and the epa and minimum wage, those things get in the way of profits! So a few thousand Bangladeshis got killed or maimed? Who cares? Plenty more where they came from, no one forced them to do that work, that's their problem.

The type of tax exempt status these groups were seeking are for groups that advocate for social issues. Not political.
They can do political activities but this cannot be their major endeavor.
The Red Cross advocates for their health services , they do not endorse candidates (as far as I know), and no one ran for office on the Red Cross ticket.
The AARP advocates for older people. They push issues that effect older people.
It is all political Davey

Why aren't you concerned that Karl Rove hasn't been put in jail for tax fraud for claiming his American Crossroads organization was non-partisan and then spending millions on political attack ads?
The IRS SHOULD have been profiling these criminal groups.
Has this even been mentioned on FOX?
The 501 (c) covers a lot of ground and is divided into subgroups. The 501 (c)(4) serves groups whose primary purpose is social welfare and therein lies the problem and the reason for some of stupid sounding questions asked the TeaParty and 9/12 groups who were applying for the special nonprofit status. BTW it was mentioned that over 70,000 such groups applied after the Citizens United ruling which was four times the average prior to the ruling.

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Today Speaker of the House John Boehner issued the following letter to the American people:
Dear American People,
Yesterday, your hardworking House Republicans tried, once again, and failed, once again, to repeal Obamacare. And I really thought we had a good chance this time.
That’s because we were all united in our hatred for this infernal and takes-too-long-to-read law. Every last one of us cast his vote to strike it down, from crazy little Paul Ryan to that arrogant bastard Eric Cantor.
And I wish you could have seen the faces of those freshman Republicans as they voted to repeal Obamacare—so innocent, so full of hope and wonder. As I told them yesterday,“You’ll never forget your first time.”
It’s important for you to know that even as scandals swirl about the cesspool known as the White House, some folks in Washington are still working hard for the American people.
It was a gruelling week for me, what with popping up in front of the TV cameras every five minutes saying,“Who’s going to jail?,” plus trying to rid our land of Obamacare. But I don’t want your thanks. Save that for the dedicated House Republicans who have now voted thirty-seven times to repeal. You can’t put a price tag on that kind of performance. Well, actually, you can: it’s cost the taxpayers over fifty million dollars.
And worth every million, damn it.
One last thing. I know some of you are probably thinking that after suffering this latest defeat, we House Republicans are just going to take our bat and ball and go home. Well, there’s an old saying where I come from: the thirty-eighth time’s the charm.
Courage,
John Boehner
“This Is All About Jobs”: Congressman Boehner Applauds Vote to Fully Repeal Health Care Law

May 16

Washington -

Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 45, legislation fully repealing and defunding the president’s health care law:



“This is all about jobs. The president’s health care law is already undermining our economy -- employers are cutting workers and cutting hours, costs are going up, and even Democrats are worried the whole thing is headed for a train wreck. There are also serious concerns about whether the IRS should be involved in our health care at all, let alone as the law’s chief enforcer. Fully repealing ObamaCare will help us build a stronger, healthier economy, and will clear the way for patient-centered reforms that lower health care costs and protect jobs. This is a good, common-sense bill, and I thank Congresswoman Bachmann for her leadership in bringing it to a vote today.”
