The Government Accountability Institute (GAI) is a "a new conservative investigative research organization."[1] The GAI states as its mission "to investigate and expose crony capitalism, misuse of taxpayer monies, and other governmental corruption or malfeasance."[2]

The GAI has several ties to right-wing groups such as Citizens United, the American Conservative Union, Young America's Foundation, and the Hoover Institution, through its key staff and board members:

Peter Schweizer, president of the GAI, is a researcher for the Hoover Institution in Stanford, California.[3] Mr. Schweizer is also on the Research Advisory Council of the James Madison Institute,[4] a member of the State Policy Network, which itself is a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council.

Executive Chairman and co-founder of the GAI, Stephen Bannon, is the Executive Chairman of Breitbart News LLC, the parent company of Breitbart.com , a conservative news and opinion website, founded by conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart[5][6].

Board member, Ron Robinson, is a director of both Citizens United[7] and the American Conservative Union.[8][6] Mr. Robinson has also acted as the president of the Young America's Foundation for over thirty years.[9]

Why The Obama Foreign Donation ‘Scandal’ Is Pure Fiction
By Josh Israel on Oct 9, 2012 at 2:47 pm
http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2012/10/09/9...

Despite significant right-wing hype, a new report by the conservative Government Accountability Institute (GAI) on the potential for foreign nationals to illegally contribute to U.S. political campaigns does not actually find any evidence of foreign nationals successfully donating to the Obama campaign. Still, a wide array of conservative and mainstream publications have incorrectly reported that the report documents foreign donors giving to the President’s re-election.
Citizens United, YAF, and Breibart.

Obviously you do not agree with these folks, which simply highlights, again, my point that Christianity is not a unified religion, but a religion of many sects each with their own interpretation.

Emergence of the Four Gospel Canon
Dozens of gospels circulated in early Christian communities. How were the four now contained in the New Testament chosen?

Since you did not provide a link to the quote I went looking for myself, if this is still not the exact quote, providing the correct context, then you will need to supply the reference.

It still sounds like a contrived argument for just four gospels.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irenaeus
"But it is not possible that the Gospels can be either more or fewer in number than they are. For since there are four zones of the world in which we live, and four principal winds, while the church has been scattered throughout the world, and since the 'pillar and ground' of the Church is the Gospel and the spirit of life, it is fitting that she should have four pillars, breathing incorruption on every side, and vivifying human afresh. From this fact, it is evident that the Logos, the fashioner demiourgos of all, he that sits on the cherubim and holds all things together, when he was manifested to humanity, gave us the gospel under four forms but bound together by one spirit." Against Heresies 3.11.8
When, oh when, will you learn that those who profess loudest to be Christians - aren't.

Peace, passivity, tolerance, selflessness, responsibility for others, self-sacrifice - are all an anathematic to Right Wingers.

"Southern Poverty Law Center Provides Cover for Jihad Apologists."

"The SPLC was started over forty years ago as a legitimate civil rights organization to combat the violent racist actions of groups like the Ku Klux Klan, but has become part of the vast web of organizations--many funded by George Soros's Open Society Institute--that work together to smear conservative voices in order to advance a leftist agenda.

One way to think of the institutional left is as a body where different organs perform different functions but all function together to form a whole; your stomach signals your brain that it wants food, so your feet walk you to the fridge, your hand opens the door, and so on. With the institutional left, many different groups work in concert to promote the wider agenda of radicals, such as diminishing America's security.

The role that the Southern Poverty Law Center plays is to be an "objective" source to brand conservative entities as "hate groups" for the purpose of stopping debate and discussion on important issues. The well-heeled SPLC--with financial reserves of over $200 million--does this through their Hate Watch blog and a quarterly magazine but, more ominously, by also reporting their findings directly to the FBI."

"The document is called An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America, and it reads in part:

The process of settlement is a "Civilization-Jihadist Proecess" with all the word means. The Ikhwan (Muslim Brotherhood) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions.

Actually, just the mere fact that organizers of the largest Islamic charity in the United States were convicted of funneling millions of dollars to overseas Islamic terror groups might give one pause but, to the Southern Poverty Law Center, pointing out things like that can get you labeled as a hate group."

"The SPLC's efforts are Orwellian. Like the attempt to manipulate the language of immigration by removing the term "illegal alien" from accepted use, if leftist groups can remove the word Islamist from politically correct vocabulary, they have defined Islamic extremism out of existence. These campaigns to reframe the debate are an important part of the institutional left's arsenal of intellectual dirty tricks."

"The tactics of institutional leftist organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center are crude and predictable, but in the wake of the Boston Marathon and Benghazi, they are increasingly dangerous. The left's goal is to silence voices like Geller, Gaffney, Spencer, and Horowitz, not because they are wrong about the threat posed by Islamic extremism, but to keep their liberal audience in the dark about just how right they are."

Timothy McVeigh - Right Wing Wacko Terrorist.

Don't forget to buy your Timothy McVeigh baseball hat on you favorite Right Wing Website.

Born April 23, 1968
Lockport, New York, U.S.
Died June 11, 2001
Cause of death Execution by lethal injection.
Location(s) Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, U.S.
Target(s) Federal government
Killed 168
Injured 600+
Weapon(s) Fertilizer truck bomb

Motive Retaliation for the Waco Siege, Ruby Ridge, other government raids, the Turner Diaries, as well as general U.S. foreign policy.

Timothy James "Tim" McVeigh (April 23, 1968 – June 11, 2001) was an American terrorist who detonated a truck bomb in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995.

Commonly referred to as the Oklahoma City Bombing, the attack killed 168 people and injured over 800.[3] It was the deadliest act of terrorism within the United States prior to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks,[3] and remains the deadliest act of domestic terrorism in United States history.

McVeigh, a militia movement sympathizer sought revenge against the federal government for their handling of the Waco Siege, which ended in the deaths of 76 people exactly two years prior to the bombing, as well as for the Ruby Ridge incident in 1992.

McVeigh hoped to inspire a revolt against what he considered to be a tyrannical federal government. He was convicted of eleven federal offenses and sentenced to death

His execution took place on June 11, 2001 at the Federal Correctional Complex in Terre Haute, Indiana.

Timothy McVeigh - he actually believed this Right Wing Wacko nonsense - and over 968 Americans paid the price.

According to scientists from the Pulkovo Observatory in St.Petersburg, solar activity is waning, so the average yearly temperature will begin to decline as well. Scientists from Britain and the US chime in saying that forecasts for global cooling are far from groundless."

I just now read this sorry excuse of a post.

The FBI did NOT purge the documents, FBI training manuals were systematically purged in 2011 of all references to Islam that were judged offensive by a specially created five-member panel. Three of the panel members were Muslim advocates from outside the FBI.

A panel of 5, 3 of which were muslim advocates OUTSIDE the FBI.
All it takes is a vote of 3 to 2 to decide which documents were purged. With 3 muslims, it's easy to figure that one out.

Your sorry attempt to lay the blame on the FBI is just another one of your libtard ways of twisting truth, and being an all around bone head.

Your 30,000 scientists suing Al Gore is fake news from 2008. Get it? It's fake! Your "Before it's News" link states they got their info from "Maggies Notebook" who has distanced themselves from it. http://www.maggiesnotebook.com/2013/04/al-gor...
The other one is from Alex Jones. The same guy who hosts "infowars" and prisonplanet.com , both notoreous right-wing whacko propaganda sites, and who claimed the US. Govt. was behind the Oklahoma City bombings, 9/11, and that the moon landing was fake.
The third article is based on a paper by Nicola Scafetta, who never could produce the computer code required to back up his assertions. He's widely considered a 3rd rate scientist who got his undergraduate degree from the University of Pisa and his PHD from the University of North Texas. He blames the Challenger explosion on "flawed data" to explain away any real research being done by real scientists.
The Tuscon Citizen hasn't been a newspaper since 2009 when it shut down. It was investigated by the US Justice Department and the Arizona Attorney General. It's now only an online "blog". Other links on the website say that "burning coal will prevent global warming".
You're brain is turning to mush by reading this ridiculous drivel. I'm not even kidding.
I am not kidding either. I have shown you that even the scientist that are studying global warming have admitted fraud and have fixed data.
Did you suddenly forget about the huge number of e-mails that were hacked over the last 4 years exposing how the global warming science is being run by politics and not science. That scientists are setting up the studies with predetermined results? They have even admitted to that and you still deny.
I guess Forbes won't do either because he is a rich capitalist and wants to kill his grandchildren with global warming. Amazing you don't even believe your Russian scientist either.
I will tell you what. You will know the truth in 100 years. I will give you $100.00 at that time if I am wrong.
