"And today I am announcing that the Justice Department will ask a federal court in Texas to subject the State of Texas to a preclearance regime similar to the one required by Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. This request to “bail in” the state – and require it to obtain “pre-approval” from either the Department or a federal court before implementing future voting changes – is available under the Voting Rights Act when intentional voting discrimination is found. Based on the evidence of intentional racial discrimination that was presented last year in the redistricting case, Texas v. Holder – as well as the history of pervasive voting-related discrimination against racial minorities that the Supreme Court itself has recognized – we believe that the State of Texas should be required to go through a preclearance process whenever it changes its voting laws and practices.
This is the Department’s first action to protect voting rights following the Shelby County decision, but it will not be our last."

The Wicked Irony Of Fox Hosts Accusing Others Of Creating Racial Division

There are few in American politics who have done more to strategically divide this country along racial lines for political and financial gain than Fox News chief Roger Ailes.

While producing town hall style events for Richard Nixon in 1968, Ailes sought to exploit racial tensions at the time by reportedly including "[a] good, mean, Wallaceite cab driver" on the panel of people who got to ask the candidate a question.

"Wouldn't that be great," Bolling, Gutfeld and O'Reilly's boss told reporter Joe McGinniss. "Some guy to sit there and say,'Awright Mac, what about these n****rs?' "

In 1988, Roger Ailes again used racial tensions to his candidate's advantage, producing the infamous Revolving Door ad for George H.W. Bush's campaign that was widely criticized for its racial overtones. The commercial depicts a line of inmates entering and exiting a prison yard swinging around a metal gate. The ad "was calculated to emphasize the one African-American" said ABC News anchor Sam Donaldson.

Running Rudy Giuliani's first mayoral campaign against David Dinkins, Roger Ailes attempted to guide his candidate to victory by stoking tension between New York's black and Jewish communities. He "placed an ad in a prominent Yiddish Newspaper, The Algemeiner Journal, that featured an image of Guiliani's opponent David Dinkins -- who would become New York City's first African-American mayor -- alongside Jesse Jackson. The ad also displayed a photo of Giuliani with President George H.W. Bush, and the headline stated,'Let the people of New York choose their own destiny.' "

Howard Kurtz, writing in 1989 for The Washington Post, quoted Ira Silverman, vice president of the American Jewish Committee saying that while Ailes had used a "legitimate campaign tactic," it was "troubling" because it "prey[ed] upon the fears of the Jewish community."

Fox News has followed Roger Ailes'lead, using race to divide, from the networks obsession with the New Black Panthers to most famously Glenn Beck suggesting the president himself was a "racist" with a "deep seeded hatred of white people and white culture."

When Fox hosts wish to complain about those who benefit from racial division, perhaps they should stop by the second floor of 21st Century Fox's Manhattan headquarters and deliver the message in person.

Juror Says ‘George Zimmerman Got Away With Murder’
A woman who sat on the all-female jury that acquitted George Zimmerman said in an interview set to air Friday that the former neighborhood watch captain "got away with murder" in the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin.
Juror B29, the lone minority on the jury, allowed her face to be shown in her interview with ABC's Robin Roberts and disclosed a first name of Maddy. But the 36-year-old nursing assistant, who is Puerto Rican, did not offer her last name, citing security concerns.
In the interview that will air on "Good Morning America," Maddy said that she and the jurors followed Florida law and the evidence put forth was not sufficient to prove murder. And for that, she said, Zimmerman walked.
"George Zimmerman got away with murder, but you can't get away from God. And at the end of the day, he's going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with," Maddy told ABC. "[But] the law couldn't prove it."
Maddy said she expected to be the juror "to give them the hung jury."
"I fought to the end," she said.

Does it matter? Supposedly, only 20 "progressive" groups requested tax exemptions and only 6 of those were delayed for whatever reason.
Compare that to almost 300 conservative groups - many of them small neighborhood groups trying to become part of the political process - and their requests not only being delayed but also literally interrogated with questions that went far and beyond any semblance of what was necessary or appropriate.
Is this the kind of America you really want?
Why don't you provide a link once in awhile for your "facts". I haven't found anything that says only six "progressive" groups were targeted....only that 6 with "progressive" or "progress" in their title were targeted. The Inspector General continually makes reference to the May audit conducted by the treasury department without taking into account that the audit, as a result of Issa's narrow instruction, was conducted without knowledge that the IRS even targeted liberal groups. The audit was conducted on a "statistical sampling" of the applications provided by the IRS.

FACT: In their audit, as flawed as it was, the Treasury Department stated that "We reviewed all 298 cases that had been identified as potential political cases....in the majority of cases, we agreed that the applications submitted included indications of significant political campaign intervention. However, we did not identify any indications of significant political campaign intervention for 91 of the 296 application that had complete information." However, as is further explained in the audit, treasury department employees are not necessarily familiar with what does and does not signal a review.

(Keep in mind, under the direction of Issa, the IRS did not provide all applications to the Treasury Department, only those that could involve conservative groups.)

Republicans are making a mountain out of a mole hill.

Mary rode the lovely, hairy stalk of celery like it was the first bus out of town and she could feel the wads of clotting blood flowing out of her tiny loins like a river. Every so often she'd put the bloody ends in her mouth and suck them clean then she'd sprinkle of a little more Tabasco and horseradish and stick it back inside herself again. The Tabasco sauce burned a little bit at first but it had the result of super-sensitizing her insides so when she finally did come her head arched back and her little toes curled painfully under her arches and there was menstrual blood everywhere, one her thighs, on her belly, dripping off her chin and she grunted like an animal and shoved the entire stick of celery all the up inside her tender body.
