ALERT: IRS, Lerner and DOJ collaborated to bring false charges/evidence against conservatives

by Sher Zieve on Monday, April 21st, 2014

This is article 294 of 294 in the topic Taxation/IRS

It’s getting harder and harder to ignore the unprecedented corruption, perversions and all around criminal mob behavior inherent within virtually each and every member of the ObamaGov. However, the wholly-owned-by-Obama media will have no difficulty in doping so. Having no ethics, it’s easy. Today, Judicial Watch released information contained within emails from Lerner to the DOPJ and its members responses back to her. To say they are startling and shocking is a huge understatement. They are chilling and – in some circles (probably many Republicans in Congress) – potentially terrifying.

It confirms – with no doubt for anyone who can read and has the IQ to determine that which he or she is reading. First, there’s this gem:

May 8, 2013: Lerner to Flax:

‘I got a call today from Richard Pilger Director Elections Crimes Branch at DOJ … He wanted to know who at IRS the DOJ folk s [sic] could talk to about Sen. Whitehouse idea at the hearing that DOJ could piece together false statement cases about applicants who “lied” on their 1024s – saying they weren’t planning on doing political activity, and then turning around and making large visible political expenditures. DOJ is feeling like it needs to respond, but want to talk to the right folks at IRS to see whether there are impediments from our side and what, if any damage this might do to IRS programs.

I told him that sounded like we might need several folks from IRS…’ In other words, she’s asking “How can we fake evidence to arrest, prosecute and send conservatives to prison?”

The response is equally telling, with Flax is equally chilling:

May 9, 2013: Flax to Lerner

“I think we should do it – also need to include CI [Criminal Investigation Division], which we can help coordinate. Also, we need to reach out to FEC. Does it make sense to consider including them in this or keep it separate?”

Folks, we ARE now living in a Marxist totalitarian State. This only serves to underline that truth!

2Th 2:9 (NKJ) “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders.”

Standing Up To Government Is Now Domestic Terrorism

Standing Up To Government Is Now Domestic Terrorism

PHOTOS.COM

The political class is now demonstrating a level of hubris rarely, if ever, seen in the American system.

Within just a few hours, three of the top four most post powerful politicians in the country unabashedly revealed the low opinion they have of liberty and the American people and a willingness to persecute, prosecute and lie to those who advocate and fight for Constitutional government. And by their silence, the rest of the political class nodded their agreement.

First, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called Bunkerville, Nev., rancher Cliven Bundy and the hundreds of Americans who rallied to Bundy’s defense domestic terrorists. Then, President Barack Obama brazenly lied to the American people in claiming that 8 million people had signed up for Obamacare and that the program was a success, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. And early Friday morning, we learned Speaker of the House John Boehner has proclaimed once again to big money donors and crony capitalists that an immigration bill would be passed this year over the wishes of the majority of Americans.

Within hours of reports circulating in alternative media of Reid’s use of the Bureau of Land Management in his land grab on behalf of a Chinese solar energy firm, BLM pulled its goon squad of armed enforcers out of the area. It also scrambled to delete evidence from its own website that the area the Bundy family has used to graze their cattle is needed for “utility-scale solar power generation facilities on public lands” and that need was hindered by “trespass grazing” cattle.

Reid and his son Rory have worked in lockstep with the BLM and transnational green energy firms to wrestle land and use rights from American ranchers for years. Bundy is the last rancher standing in an area that once saw dozens of them.

What few reports on the standoff between Bundy and BLM that have made it into the mainstream media speciously claim the Bundy ranch is some 200 miles from the proposed site of the ENN Energy Group’s solar farm and panel building plant, and that the ENN project was shelved last year. Even the supposedly reliable “right wing” websites Breitbart.com and Glenn Beck’s The Blaze have carried the Federal government’s water on this dispute. The two-faced Beck — who has called for a pitchfork revolution and sells shirts calling for one — even went so far as to call Bundy supporters “frightening” and compared them with Occupy Wall Street, which was a CIA-funded operation designed to foment unrest in America.

Claims have also been made that the Federal government owns the land in question. But the Constitution specifically describes in Article I, Section 8 what land the Federal government can possess, and there are subsequent Supreme Court decisions that lay out the legal framework. (Hint: It does not include protecting tortoises or building solar plants.)

A BLM document discusses the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone and specifically mentions the Gold Butte area (which includes Bunkerville) and “cattle trespass grazing” as being part of critical concern to future utility-scale solar energy development.

New IRS documents: Lerner colluded with DOJ to prosecute conservative groups

by Jim Kouri on Thursday, April 17th, 2014

This is article 292 of 294 in the topic Taxation/IRS

On Wednesday, the day after what’s commonly called “Tax Day” each April 15, members of the House of Representatives announced that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released documents that appear to describe a conspiracy by the IRS and the Department of Justice (DOJ) to “railroad” conservative organizations that posed a threat to the re-election of President Barack Obama and to his political agenda.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the current chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, chairman of the Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Job Creation and Regulatory Affairs released their response to documents they read that were obtained by an Inside-the-Beltway nonpartisan, public-interest group, Judicial Watch, which investigates and exposes government corruption and abuse.

Reps. Issa and Jordan allege that the newly released IRS documents reveal that Lois Lerner, the Director of the IRS Exempt Organizations office at the time, was in contact with Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department officials regarding possible prosecutions of tax-exempt groups Lerner deemed to be “dangerous” to the Democrats especially the Obama administration.

“The release of new documents underscores the political nature of IRS Tea Party targeting and the extent to which supposed apolitical officials took direction from elected Democrats,” Chairman Issa said in a press statement on Wednesday.

“These emails are part of an overwhelming body of evidence that political pressure from prominent Democrats led to the targeting of Americans for their political beliefs,” added Issa.

“Now I see why the IRS is scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails,” said Chairman Jordan.

Jordan said in the joint press statement with Issa that:

“Not only do these emails further prove the coordination among the IRS, the Federal Election Commission (FEC), the Justice Department and committee Democrats to target conservatives, they also show that had our committee not requested the Inspector General’s investigation when we did, Eric Holder’s politicized Justice Department would likely have been leveling trumped up criminal charges against Tea Party groups to intimidate them from exercising their Constitutional rights.”

The internal IRS documents show that Lois Lerner — who repeatedly refused to testify before Congress on two separate occasions by “pleading the Fifth” {Amendment] was communicating with the DOJ regarding the possibility of initiating to criminal prosecutions against certain tax-exempt entities.

The documents were obtained as a result of an October 2013 Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the IRS. The reason for the lawsuit was the agency’s refusal to respond to four previous FOIA requests dating back to May 2013.

“This is an administration that lied to the American people from the very beginning, when during his presidential campaign in 2008 President [Barack Obama] told voters his would be the most transparent White House in U.S. history,” former police and security investigator, Charles Danzinger, said.

“Unfortunately, I’m not holding my breathe waiting for the Obama sycophants in the mainstream news media to investigate this story. They’ve all but buried the other stories about alleged criminal activity and misconduct in this administration,” Danzinger added.

The newly released IRS documents contain an email exchange between Lerner and Nikole C. Flax, then-Chief of Staff to then-Acting IRS Commissioner Steven T.

Elijah Cummings, Eric Holder accused of involvement in IRS conspiracy

by Jim Kouri on Sunday, April 13th, 2014

This is article 236 of 236 in the topic Congressional Investigations

Following this week’s hearings regarding the alleged targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups by the Internal Revenue Service, GOP lawmakers are accusing a fellow member of Congress and the nation’s top law enforcement officer of conspiring to help cover up the illegal and politically-motivated activities of the IRS’ Office of Exempt Organizations, according to a number of news reports on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., criticized Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., for having his office communicate with the controversial IRS director Lois Lerner in 2012 in order to pressure her and her minions to target a conservative watchdog group that investigates cases of illegal voting.

Issa, who chairs the committee, told reporters that documents he received from the IRS revealed that Cummings and the IRS allegedly conspired to harass the nonpartisan True the Vote, a group that advocates fair and honest elections and reports on alleged illegal election practices by both Democrats and Republicans.

“The IRS and the Oversight Minority made numerous requests for virtually identical information from True the Vote, raising concerns that the IRS improperly shared protected taxpayer information with Rep. Cummings’ staff,” Issa stated on the Oversight Committee’s website.

Issa accuses Cummings and his House staffers of seeking materials used by the group, a list of the group’s affiliates and information on contributors and supporters of True the Vote.

According to Issa, after Cummings and his staff pressured the IRS to go after True the Vote, the conservative group received an email message to submit information to IRS agents such as registration forms used to enlist volunteers, the group’s protocols for handing out assignments to those volunteers, training documents, and other information that is never asked from left-wing groups.

“Now we see why [Rep. Elijah] Cummings was so shrill and angry during Lois Lerner’s appearance in front of his committee. Cummings should be the one being investigated based on his politicizing the IRS in a conspiracy to silence a vocal organization,” said political strategist Mike Baker.

Meanwhile, U.S. Congressman Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, surprised many of his colleagues and President Barack Obama’s allies in the news media by bluntly lambasting Attorney General Eric Holder during his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.

Congressman Farenthold said that during his appropriated time he would not question Holder during the hearing because he felt that, since the Holder was held in contempt of Congress, it is inappropriate for the alleged perjurer to appear before a Congressional committee as if there were no problem with his past behavior.

According to his statement, Rep. Farenthold told his fellow committee members: “I don’t think Mr. Holder should be here. He’s in contempt of this body. I’ve called for his resignation, I’ve sponsored articles of impeachment and, this week, I’m going to be introducing legislation that would prevent federal employees who are held in contempt of Congress or who fail to fully comply with a Congressional subpoena from being paid their taxpayer-funded salary.”

The Texas Republican added: “If an American citizen had not complied with one of the Justice Department subpoenas, they would be in jail – not sitting here testifying.”

“When you look at the documents and listen to the testimony of Holder, Cummings and Lerner, one cannot help but suspect there is a large-scale, criminal conspiracy afoot, and it needs to be thoroughly investigated perhaps by a special prosecutor,” said former police detective and private security director Michael Snipes.

The REAL Americans Begin to Fight Back to Re-Claim Our Country

by Jerry McConnell on Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

This is article 537 of 540 in the topic Media

jerry040814[1]Just recently while I was gathering notes here and there in an effort to truthfully inform my readers of what is happening to our beloved country and not the ruinous, distortioning terms of the far left; I mean VERY FAR LEFT; I came upon an online column by Larry Kudlow for MoneyNewss.com, published on April 04, 2014, titled, “Charles Koch Fights Back” and it struck me that everything that I had been seeking was staring straight at me.

Larry (formally) Lawrence Kudlow of Creators Syndicate, Inc. and creators.com along with CNBC is a fair-minded person who, as he says in his mini-bio for the website he has “always tried to represent all points of view. I have tried to listen and learn and debate both my liberal and my conservative friends.”

Mr. Ludlow’s very interesting column as mentioned in my opening paragraph reminded me of a column I wrote which was published in the March 24, 2014 online edition of the Canada Free Press that covered the well known industrialist, Charles Koch and the barrage of criticism leveled at him and his business partner and brother for Koch Industries.

The fact that Charles Koch chose to combat the nefarious liar, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Democrat from Nevada, was what I had been hoping to hear about and to feast my eyes on, and there it was on MoneyNews.com.

Unlike Mr. Kudlow, I do not represent all points of view; I merely report and comment on all points; I save my loyalties for the conservative point of view.  And there online was the article named above with Kudlow giving Mr. Koch some very high-minded and conservative support for the “brilliant Wall Street Journal op-ed by Charles Koch. and the continued sluggish recovery in jobs, business investment, and the overall economy.”

Kudlow opened his support by stating, “Mr. Koch seems to make a plea for a big dose of free-market capitalism. He argues, ‘The central belief and fatal conceit of the current administration is that you are incapable of running your own life, but those in power are capable of running it for you. This is the essence of big government and collectivism.’

Kudlow went on to point out that “Charles Koch and his brother David have been vilified by the left for fighting hard to get political candidates with free-market points of view elected. Protected by U.S. Senate rules against libel, Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid has called the Kochs virtually every name in the book – including “un-American.” But now the Kochs are fighting back. And I hope they do more of it.”

It isn’t often I get to see two big-name personalities in a discussion of a matter that I had just the week before covered in the Canada Free Press. Not that their discussion was about something that I had written, but the subject matter was the same.

Kudlow went on in obvious praise by remarking, “Charles Koch’s op-ed reveals a consistency of thought. He writes, ‘I have spent decades opposing cronyism and all political favors, including mandates, subsidies and protective tariffs – even when we benefit from them.

San Francisco’s Democrat state senator indicted by feds for corruption

by Jim Kouri on Monday, April 7th, 2014

This is article 318 of 319 in the topic Criminal Activity

A federal grand jury on Friday indicted a California state senator for a number of corruption and conspiracy offenses including weapons trafficking, according to the documents released by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of California.

California State Senator Leland Yee, a Democrat, was arrested and charged as were 25 other suspects involved in the same case. The U.S. Attorney specifically accused Sen. Yee of trafficking in firearms, although the Democratic Party’s rising star advocated tough gun control laws. (See accompanying news video.)

The indictment details a large number of incidents of alleged corruption perpetrated by Sen. Yee and his fellow conspirators.

One of the more serious criminal charges is the allegation that Yee accepted cash from an undercover FBI agent who told the former candidate for San Francisco mayor that he wished to purchase illegal firearms. Yee allegedly worked to help the undercover agent get access to illegal firearms while telling his constituents that he was an advocate for tough gun control laws.

“Sen. Yee’s arrest and prosecution is part of a major FBI sting in San Francisco’s Bay area,” said former law-enforcement officer Thomas Nicosia. “This case will no doubt be used against Californian Democrats with GOP candidates point to the corruption existing within the Democratic Party locally and throughout the nation.”

The other defendants in the case include Raymond “Shrimpboy” Chow, the current Dragonhead, or leader, of the San Francisco-based Chee Kung Tong organization (CKT), according to the indictment.

Besides the gun trafficking, Yee is also charged with trading political influence for cash bribes.

The state senator’s new lawyer, former federal prosecutor Jim Lassart, hasn’t yet issued a statement about his client’s case.

Yee is free on half-million dollar bail as he awaits his federal trial. He and most of the other defendants are scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday. Ironically, Sen. Yee had been preparing to run for California Secretary of State in the November 2014 election and has already established a Facebook campaign page.

Who Will Keep Us Safe? Certainly Not Government

by Bob Livingston on Monday, April 7th, 2014

Who Will Keep Us Safe? Certainly Not Government

THINKSTOCK

Any time I write that unConstitutional alphabet soup Federal agencies should be eliminated — whether on Constitutional grounds or to reduce the size and cost of Federal government — there follows a deluge of comments to the effect of, “But then who will reign in those evil corporations, enforce regulations and keep them from harming citizens?” and “Who will keep us safe?”

Thanks to years of propaganda combined with 12 years of indoctrination at the hands of the public (non)education system, most Americans are under the false belief that the U.S. government is an agent of good in the world and Federal agencies want to protect citizens from harm. Americans by and large have become statists: They believe that every transaction, every contract, every aspect of human behavior must be regulated for “fairness” and that only the state is capable of regulating “fairly.”

They have abandoned republicanism in favor of the sweet sound of democracy. In doing so, they have embraced fascism and tyranny.

Of course, statist politicians (which is to say the overwhelming majority of them) always couch their liberty-stealing ideas and laws in altruism and code words in order to get the people to support policies against their own interests. You’ve heard the terms they use: “It’s for the children;” and “To keep everyone safe;” and “It’s good for the environment;” and “We must act now to prevent another tragedy.”

The truth is that government agencies and laws are only as good as the people staffing them and enforcing the laws and, unfortunately, government attracts parasites and psychopaths like honey attracts ants and bears. And they are just as annoying and more dangerous.

History is rife with examples of government action ostensibly to “help the people” resulting in privation, destruction, death and turmoil. Anyone who has truly studied the history of governments around the world has seen that the elected class — with very few exceptions — is populated by a psychopathic mix of destroyers and seekers of wealth and power. They pay little mind to the consequences of their actions. What is relevant to them is their glorification, gratification and security at the seat of power.

So it is with little surprise that I saw reports that the Environmental Protection Agency has been conducting experiments on people — children included — to determine how they were affected by pollution. The EPA has been doing these experiments “for about 40 years” and it has authority to continue to do so under the Clean Air Act, which was passed by a “beneficent” Congress looking out for our welfare.

The newly released government report shows that the EPA was exposing people to dangerously high levels of toxins and pollutants without informing them of their risk for cancer and death. Those exposed included the elderly; those with asthma, heart and other health problems; and children. The exposure was to levels of pollutants up to 50 times greater than levels the EPA has deemed safe for human exposure.

IRS’ Lois Lerner to face contempt of congress charge soon, say lawmakers

by Jim Kouri on Sunday, April 6th, 2014

This is article 235 of 236 in the topic Congressional Investigations

In the continuing probe into what many consider the most serious of President Barack Obama’s “phony scandals,” — the targeting of conservative and Tea Party groups by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) — the House Oversight Committee chairman stated on Thursday that his committee members will meet for a special business meeting on April 10 to consider bringing a contempt of Congress resolution against a former IRS director who has pleaded the Fifth Amendment on two separate occasions.

Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said that his committee will consider contempt of Congress charges against Lois Lerner, the IRS’ former director of Exempt Organizations. During two separate hearings regarding allegations that the IRS targeted conservative groups, especially those with the words “tea party” or “patriot” in their names, Lerner invoked her Fifth Amendment right to remain silent, as reported by the Examiner.

There were also allegations that the IRS illegally “shared” information about conservative groups with liberal-left organizations. Section 6103 of the Internal Revenue Code stipulates that it’s a felony for an Internal Revenue Service official to disclose either “return information” or “taxpayer return information” to any individuals or organizations including government agencies, according to an Examiner news story.

When questioned about the accusations of improper — even criminal — misconduct by IRS agents on two separate occasions — on May 22, 2013 and then on March 5, 2014 — Lerner invoked her Fifth Amendment right to not incriminate herself. The hearings were titled, “Targeting Americans for their Political Beliefs.”

“Documents and testimony point to Lois Lerner as a senior IRS official responsible for conduct that deprived Americans of their rights to free speech and equal protection under our laws,” said Issa in his statement on Thursday.

“Americans expect accountability and want Congress to do all it can to gather relevant evidence about what occurred and who was responsible so that this never happens again. Ms. Lerner’s involvement in wrongdoing and refusal to meet her legal obligations has left the Committee with no alternative but to consider a contempt finding,” he added.

The last time an Obama administration member was held in contempt by the House, was in 2012 when Attorney General Eric Holder was cited for lying before congress.

According to allegations against Lerner, she managed the IRS division that targeted Tea Party groups seeking tax-exempt status for an unusual amount of scrutiny that wasn’t given to leftist groups. There were accusations by leaders of conservative organizations that the IRS staff required an extraordinary amount of information about the groups and their leaders that appeared to be overlooked in the IRS’ dealings with left-leaning or far-left organizations that were afforded tax exempt status.

“Ms. Lerner presided over the IRS division where targeting and improper scrutiny of Tea Party groups took place. She, herself, directed unprecedented scrutiny of Tea Party applicants and worked on new restrictive rules for non-profits after President Obama and other prominent Democrats expressed outrage at the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision,” noted the Oversight Committee.

The GOP lawmakers on the committee have pointed out that Lerner is the only IRS witness called by the committee who refuses to testify in the IRS targeting probe, in spite of her attorney informing Congress that she intends to testify. However, that offer was quashed by Lerner.

You Say You Want a Revolution

by Dr. Robert Owens on Saturday, April 5th, 2014

This is article 426 of 429 in the topic Government Corruption

Our revolution changed the world. Our Declaration of Independence proclaims self-evident truths. That all men are created equal, they’re endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights, among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These words shook a world held in the vise-grip of hereditary privilege inspiring people around the globe. Our Constitution established a representative republic with a limited government of the people, by the people and for the people.

We’ve watched as our constitutionally limited government grew until today it’s a leviathan running amok like Godzilla in Tokyo smashing things and scaring boy scouts. Today the Federal government is the largest employer in America, states are the largest employers in the states and counties are among the largest employers in the counties get the picture? Government is on a rampage and unless Mothra is going to fly in to save the day we’ll have to deal with Frankenstein-on-the-Potomac ourselves.

Such brazen power-plays as the Executive branch issuing the Legislature an ultimatum, either pass Cap-N-Trade or we’ll impose it administratively through command-and-control make the dramatic changes in our political culture shockingly apparent. Has our balance of powers melted away under the glare of executive orders, signing statements and now ultimatums? Some people say this is evolution. To others it’s devolution. Our hard-won and dearly-paid-for Republic is devolving into a command-and-control all-encompassing central-state.

With political dynasties bequeathing congressional seats like hereditary fiefdoms it’s becoming hard to explain why we left the British Empire. Today we not only have taxation without representation as congressional party-line voters ignore their constituents we also have representation without taxation as the perpetually re-elected Lords and Ladies represent the illegal immigrants and the professional welfare hammock-riders.

These big government social planners may believe they’ve achieved their community organizing goals fulfilling Historian Will Durant paraphrase of Lincoln’s famous quote, “It may be true that you can’t fool all the people all the time, but you can fool enough of them to rule a large country.” They may believe their revolutionary administration will fundamentally change America however, if they’d step 20 miles outside the Beltway obviously there’s a counter-revolution brewing. The Tea Party is overtaking the Republican Party in popularity. It has already supplanted them at the grassroots of the conservative movement. By 2010 an avalanche of voters thronged the polling places demanding their country back.

Following the tactics of Saul Alinsky brought the Obama-Acorn-SEIU coalition control of the Democratic Party and the country but following the Cloward/Piven Strategy for overwhelming the system to impose an alternative system is going to lead to a complete repudiation of this radical departure from traditional American politics and economics. We aren’t Venezuela. Even after decades of legislative efforts to progressively create a permanent underclass of government dependents who’ll follow the leader to the next looting of productive members of society the majority in this country still want freedom and opportunity not cradle-to-grave mediocrity.

We can and should stage a counter-revolution against this growing tyranny. A peaceful, lawful revolution at the ballot box and if you’re talking about destruction, you can count me out. The last thing we need in this crowded theater full of combustible emotions is either a match or someone shouting fire. Any incident right now would trigger a massive response.

Americans are Drowning in Lies

by Alan Caruba on Friday, April 4th, 2014

This is article 425 of 429 in the topic Government Corruption

In the April 1 edition of The Wall Street Journal, an editorial took note of President Obama’s announcement the previous day that sign-ups for Obamacare had passed seven million.

“Suddenly ObamaCare is a roaring success, happy days are here again and liberals are euphoric, or claim to be. There are more than a few reasons to doubt this new fairy tale, not least the behavior of Senate Democrats running for re-election this year.”

I usually don’t quote from other newspapers for the simple reason that most just repeat Obama’s lies. To an old journalist, that’s very depressing.

It’s depressing, too, to contemplate the list of Obama administration scandals, not the least of which is the September 11, 2012 attack on our Benghazi consulate that took the life of a U.S. ambassador and three security personnel. The claim that it was a spontaneous response to a video has been completely discredited.

“The Benghazi  Report” of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has been published by Skyhorse Publishing. It documents a complete lack of truth and morality regarding the event and it has cascaded through the entire administration from the day Obama first took office in 2009. It was summed up by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s now classic response, “What difference does it make?”

What historians will likely find astonishing is the way Hillary Clinton is the only person mentioned as the Democratic Party candidate for President in the 2016 elections. I find it distressing that former Governor Jeb Bush is being touted as the Republican choice. With the exception of Obama who defeated Hillary in the 2008 primaries, the U.S. has had a Bush or Clinton as President since 1989.

We fought a Revolution to rid ourselves of such monarchies or in this case political dynasties.

There’s something fundamentally wrong with such lines of succession, but worse is the notion that the Democratic Party would even consider someone—Hillary Clinton—whose character, let alone her policies, have been so seriously flawed and documented for so long.

The most current and obvious demonstration of the lies with which we have been living since Obama was first elected is Obamacare, the Affordable Care Act that was passed solely by Democratic Party votes and by legislators that never even read it. This has been compounded by the now famous lies of the President concerning it.

Obamacare is so toxic that Democrat candidates up for election or reelection in the November 2014 midterms have fleeing their votes or support, now claiming that it merely needs revision, not repeal. Even the Republican Party has taken this position and both are wrong to do so. It puts the government in control of one sixth of the economy and the lives of all Americans. Some will die as a result.

Most revealing is Sen. Dick Durbin’s April 1st statement that “The free enterprise system is a strong system” but that it “created unfairness and injustice when it came to health care, which we are addressing with this Affordable Care Act.” Free enterprise is what made America the most powerful economy in the world. There is no system anywhere that does not suffer from some degree of unfairness because all are the product of human invention. Life is not fair.
