In the weeks to come, it will be interesting to watch the Diane Sawyers, Oprahs, Madcows and the whole Liberal bookshelf of Media liars try to cover for the Magic Negro.

Hee, Hee,....I watched Diane traffic her sleeze tonight...."Last year", she said, "only 6 states approved gay marriage but, after President Obama said he approved of it, the number has climbed to 12".

Gee, Diane, that Magic Negro has such magical powers, doesn't he? He leads the Socialist Poop Parade and you follow him stepping in his droppings.

But I did learn something today. The song "What a Difference a Day Makes" was written about Social Security and receiving the first check. Anyone born on or after the 3rd of the month does have to wait two months. The lucky ones born on the 2nd or the 1st have to wait only one month.

"The FBI is coordinating with the Justice Department to see if any
laws were broken in connection with those matters related to the IRS,"
Holder said. "We are examining the facts to see if there were criminal
violations."
The IRS on Friday disclosed that officials had selected groups with
the names "tea party" and "patriot" that had applied for tax exempt
status for additional review. The IRS said the actions were wrong and
apologized. "
Holder announced Tuesday that he has ordered an investigation to see if there were criminal violations in the Internal Revenue Service scrutiny of conservative political groups that had sought non-profit status.

Isn't that like the fox guarding the hen house?

thank you G.W.

The Department of Justice sent a letter to the Associated Press on Tuesday, which was provided to TPM, saying that it acted within the law when subpoenaing the phone records of AP journalists as part of a criminal investigation.

"The subpoenas were limited to a reasonable period of time and did not seek the content of any calls," DOJ Deputy Attorney General James Cole wrote to AP President and CEO Gary Pruitt. "In addition, these records have been closely held and reviewed solely for the purposes of this ongoing criminal investigation. The records have not been and will not be provided for use in any other investigations."

"We strive in every case to strike the proper balance between the public's interest in the free flow of infomation and the public's interest in the protection of national security and effective enforcement of our criminal laws. We believe we have done so in this matter."

Uh, no. How is this related to bin Laden being a symbol of 9/11 and no longer a threat and killing him was for closure?

Report: IRS D.C. office investigated applications for non-profit status
Both Democrats and Republicans are calling for an investigation of what happened, though Republicans appear more interested in making it a political issue than Democrats. The Republican Governors' Association, for example, called on the president to name a special prosecutor.
I'm sure this won't happen, but hopefully Congressional investigators will remember the reason the IRS is involved in investigating these groups in the first place is that under current law, the IRS—not the Federal Elections Commission—is responsible for regulating these groups. There's no justification for targeting them on the basis of political affiliation, but on the other hand, it's not like the IRS should abdicate its responsibility to enforce the law.
I'm sure conservatives would love a scenario where the IRS simply rubber-stamped the tax-exempt status applications of every conservative group, but if the IRS did that, what would the point be of having laws in the first place? Moreover, the idea that conservatives are the only groups that have ever been singled out is ridiculous—liberals were targeted for political reasons during the Bush years.
Bottom-line: This is a serious issue, but if conservatives approach it as a partisan game, it'll turn into another Benghazi probe, and quickly.

The IRS asked many illegal questions. Guess what the IRS did not deny tax exempt status to a single case they investigated. Did you find it a little strange they did not ask liberal groups the same questions?

The "axis of evil" was almost comical.
Mohammed Atta was the driving force behind 9/11, it may have been another person's idea to commandeer passenger jets and then use them as missiles against US landmarks but Atta made it happen and frankly OBL was not Atta's mentor.
But after piloting one of the planes into the side of the WTC, Atta no longer had a fkn face did he? And as an Egyptian he wasn't exactly a Saudi was he?
Hmmph
I think it was bin Laden declaring war on us that became the face of terrorism after 9/11. Pretty sure.

The IRS & he right whiner groups.
After Citizen's United SC decision, thousands of groups were looking for tax exempt status as a way of funding political campaigns.
Under the code for that type of tax exempt organization, the IRS defines it as:
"the promotion of social welfare does not include direct or indirect participation or intervention in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office." That said, "a section 501(c)(4) social welfare organization may engage in some political activities, so long as that is not its primary activity."
So, how do you determine if these political agendas were not the primary activity?
"real dumb"
Answer one question. Why did not the IRS ask a single liberal 501 (c)(4) organization the same illegal questions?

The witch hunt of liberal churches happened under the leadership of IRS commissioner Mark Whitty Everson, a Republican appointed by George W. Bush in 2003. Another Bush appointee, Douglas Schulman, headed the IRS during the scrutiny of Tea Party groups seeking non-profit status in 2012. Schulman's term ended on November 11, after the 2012 election.

At the same time IRS compliance agents were demanding all papers and email related to sermonizing in the liberal Pasadena church, right-leaning churches across the country aggressively registered voters and brought Republican candidates to Sunday services to give campaign speeches.

....That the IRS under a Republican administration deliberately targeted liberal California churches has been forgotten in the manufactured outrage of the Republican Party's Tea Party-IRS scandal. That the IRS was still under the control of a Bush appointee during the 2012 scrutiny of new non-profits that self-identified with the Republican Party's Tea Party movement is also little mentioned, because the president is a popular Democrat.

Did you happen to catch the NAACP's response today to the Magic Negro's using the IRS to browbeat Conservatives?

They played the Race Card. SURPRISE!!!

They called the Tea Party racist and that the IRS had every right to investigate racist organizations!!!!

Following this formula, the NAACP should have been put out of bidniss ages ago.
