Talk about sneaking bastards! You would think they would know that all of this comes out and makes them look bad.
(The Hill) — The Obama administration is quietly diverting roughly $500 million to the IRS to help implement the president’s healthcare law.
The money is only part of the IRS’s total implementation spending, and it is being provided outside the normal appropriations process. The tax agency is responsible for several key provisions of the new law, including the unpopular individual mandate.
Republican lawmakers have tried to cut off funding to implement the healthcare law, at least until after the Supreme Court decides whether to strike it down. That ruling is expected by June, and oral arguments last week indicated the justices might well overturn at least the individual mandate, if not the whole law.
“While President Obama and his Senate allies continue to spend more tax dollars implementing an unpopular and unworkable law that may very well be struck down as unconstitutional in a matter of months, I’ll continue to stand with the American people who want to repeal this law and replace it with something that will actually address the cost of healthcare,” said Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.), who chairs the House Appropriations subcommittee for healthcare and is in a closely contested Senate race this year.
The Obama administration has plowed ahead despite the legal and political challenges.
Speaking of the IRS. How about this one from the commissioner of the IRS. How to make illegals in our country legal citizens.
The IRS commissioner says if illegals pay their taxes then it’s a pathway to citizenship.
This is nothing more than a ploy to have them file for taxes which would then generate a need to allow them EIC which would further deplete our national treasury….and guarantee liberals more government jobs from which we’d never be able to fire them.
Plus, it helps that elections are right around the corner and Barry O’Fuckup wants to buy more votes.
IRS Commissioner: Paying Taxes Is Pathway to Citizenship for Illegal Aliens By Elizabeth Harrington April 5, 2012
(CNSNews.com) – Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Douglas Shulman said Thursday that paying taxes is a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens.
At the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., 12 days before this year’s tax-filing deadline (Apr. 17), Shulman was asked about what his agency is doing to collect taxes from illegal aliens.
“You know, it’s a great question,” he said. “One of the pathways to citizenship that people believe is a good one is–even if you’re not in this country legally–to pay taxes.”
“And so our job is to make sure, if you work in this country and you have a tax obligation, that you file a tax return,” said Shulman. “That’s what we try to do. And so our job is around exactly what whoever wrote the question asked, which is to make sure taxes are paid. We’re not responsible for the other pieces of immigration law, immigration policy.”
Illegal aliens do not have legitimate Social Security Numbers that entitle them to work in the United States–or to file federal tax returns. IRS and Social Security Administration records show that every year many millions of people file taxes using Social Security Numbers that either were never issued by the government or do not match the name of the person using it.
Okay, we had in Florida a white guy shoot a black guy, then found out the white guy was not white, but hispanic. Remember? Then all of a sudden, all the liberal press started calling the hispanic guy a white-hispanic. Of course, Obama is half white, so how come they do not call him a white-black?
Well, now the shootings in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The two guys above killed some innocent black people (and yes, I think the two of them deserve the full sentence they will get for these horrible killings). Well, they were identified by the police and all the press as two white guys.
Police have arrested two men in a shooting rampage that killed three people, terrorizing Tulsa’s African-American community, and said one suspect might have been trying to avenge his father’s shooting two years ago by a black man.
Jake England, 19, and Alvin Watts, 32, were arrested about 2 a.m. Sunday at a home in Turley, just north of Tulsa. Police on Sunday identified both suspects as white, while all five victims in the early Friday were black.
Police and the FBI cautioned that it was too early to say whether the attacks in Tulsa’s predominantly black north side were racially motivated. However, police spokesman Jason Willingham said that based on Facebook postings being attributed to England, it appeared that a wish to avenge the death of his father might have been a factor.
Guess what, the guy on this left? He is half Indian (native American)!
So now guess what the liberal press call him? You got it! White-Indian! Started on NPR calling him white-indian, but it it sure to spread out to the rest of the liberal media.
What is up with the liberals now identifying people as white-whatever? And still, why are they not referring to the biggest killer in America, the one who killed all our jobs, a white-black? Or white-negro?
James O’Keefe strikes again at a DC polling station where workers are ever so eager to give you someone else’s ballot WITHOUT ASKING FOR ID!!!
In this case, Eric Holder’s.
The same person who sends his goon squads out to threaten states who pass ID laws.
And heaven help you if you try to get into the Department of Justice without ID.
Funny how the race baiters and the liberal media are so interested when a “white hispanic” guns down a black man, huh?
Where’s the justice for this man who died under almost identical circumstances wherein the killer alleges he was feeling threatened?
Why is this not news?
Why are blacks allowed to kill whites and hispanics (and white-hispanics) with impunity?
The liberal media and the race baiters are not demanding he be charged. No one is putting up wanted posters.
The president is not saying, and will not say, that if he had a son, he would be like this guy? (he would probably say, if I had a son, I hope he has a gun and shoots non blacks).
So do whites need to amass on streets and start burning down ghettos in restitution?
Police are saying more about a shooting at a Taco Bell Tuesday night in which one man died.
They’re also identifying the victim as 29-year-old Daniel Adkins.
About 7:30 p.m., a 22-year-old man and his girlfriend ordered food at the Taco Bell drive-thru and were told to pull up while their order was prepared.
At the same time, Adkins stepped around a corner into the path of the vehicle and angry words were exchanged between he and the driver.
They got into an altercation and Adkins was shot once by the driver. He died at the scene.
The driver, a 22-year-old black male, called police but has not been arrested.
At first, the couple claimed that Adkins had a metal pipe that he swung at them — but it turns out he was holding a dog leash with his yellow lab on the other end.
Family members want that driver arrested, but he’s claiming self-defense.
“He needs to be behind bars. I’ll never see my brother again,” says sister Marina Reyes. “If he felt that my brother was threatening him, he could have easily just rolled up the window and called the cops.”
A metal pipe or bat was never located. An independent witness did say Adkins swung his fists in the driver’s direction.
“He swung his fist towards the driver window, and at some point the driver shot him,” says Phoenix Police Sgt. Tommy Thompson. “Just because we don’t book a person immediately does not mean we don’t charge a person at a later date.”

The liberals are just big…..
As Bob Hope and Bing Crosby observed in “The Road To Bali”:
“He gets his shirts straight from Paris
Cigarettes from the Nile
He talks like a highbrow
But he plays Chicago style…”
I’ve no idea where President Barack Obama gets his shirts and smokes, but he certainly talks like a highbrow, sufficiently so to persuade presidential historian Michael Beschloss to pronounce him the day after the 2008 election “the smartest president ever.” Yet, in the end, he plays Chicago style. You can take the community organizer out of Chicago, but you can’t take the Chicago out of the community organizer. Or as the Agence France-Presse headline put it, “Combative Obama Warns Supreme Court On Health Law.”
Headlines in which the executive “warns” the courts are usually the province of places like Balochistan, where powerful Cabinet ministers are currently fuming at the Chief Justice’s determination to stop them kidnapping citizens and holding them for ransom – literally, that is, not merely figuratively, as in America. But, here as there, when Obama “warns” the Supreme Court “over health law,” it’s their health prospects he has in mind. He cautioned the justices – “an unelected group of people” – not to take the “unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”
The eunuchs of the palace media gleefully piled on: as the New York Times sees it, were the justices to take an “unprecedented” step so unprecedented there are two centuries’ worth of precedents going back to 1803, they would be fatally damaging “the Court’s legitimacy.”
All that’s unprecedented here is the spectacle of the president of the United States, while the judges are deliberating, idly swinging his tire iron and saying, “Nice little Supreme Court you got here. Shame if anything were to happen to it.”
A nation can have formal “checks and balances,” but in the end free societies depend on a certain deference to the proprieties. If you’re willing to disdain those, you can drive a coach and horses through accepted norms very easily. The bit about “a democratically elected Congress” was an especially exquisite touch given Obama’s recently professed respect for the democratic process: as he assured Vladimir Putin’s sock puppet the other day, he’ll have “more flexibility” to accommodate foreign interests after he’s got his “last election” and all that tedious democracy business out of the way. His “last election,” I hasten to add, not America’s.
Marion Barry’s mouth set him up. The disgraced former mayor of Washington, D.C., caught on tape in a 1990 crack cocaine sting, made an even bigger disgrace of himself and his city on Tuesday. Celebrating a Democratic primary victory, the city councilman attacked small businesses owned by “Asians” in his district. Then the race-baiting clown doubled down.
Barry told supporters in D.C.’s Ward 8: “We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops. They ought to go.” Once pushed out, Barry, promised, he would replace the foreign invaders with “African-American business people.” Barry then took to social networking platform Twitter to expound on the perils of “dirty” Asian shops in his neighborhood.
As documented by my Twitter curation start-up Twitchy.com (click herefor the full story), Barry posted photos of supposedly hazardous stores – including Chinese restaurants surrounded not by trash or toxic waste, but by plexiglass barriers and reinforced doors. Barry explained that Asian-owned businesses that had the audacity to protect themselves from crime were “lowering standards” in his constituents’ communities.
In Barry’s bizarre world, law-abiding entrepreneurs who take steps to prevent robberies are the ones who threaten Ward 8’s quality of life – not the armed thugs who threaten honest livelihoods in the first place. Vigilant wealth creators taking care of their families? Scourge of D.C. Profanity-spewing drug addicts inciting hatred against successful achievers of the American Dream? Model citizens!
Crazy Barry doesn’t just need another round of rehab. He needs a reality check.
As a commenter on the DCist.com website noted, 2010 Census data showed that “Asians made up 0.4% of the Ward 8 population (blacks made up 93.5%, a 1% increase from 2000). If anything, Asians are moving out, not in — the Asian population decreased 13.6% (from 301 people to 260 people) between 2000 and 2010. Meanwhile, the child poverty rate in Ward 8 sits at 48.3%, a 1.2% increase since 2000 — in contrast, the District’s overall child poverty rate decreased 3% since 2000. Now that’s what I call defying the odds.”
If Barry’s ignorant slurs had come out of the mouth of, say, former GOP Gov. George Allen of Virginia (pummeled over his “Macaca” gaffe), there would be calls for his head from every civil rights organization in the Beltway. While the Washington Post reported that Barry “apologized,” he showed typical fake penitence for “offending” Asians and claimed he was “taken out of context.”
Fool us once shame on you , fool us twice shame on us. Don’t get fooled again America.
Hey, Iowa’s own republican senator calling down Obama! Basically calling him stupid! Got to love a republican senator who tells the truth, and on twitter!
REAPING THE REWARDS OF A ‘PROGRESSIVE’ AMERICA
As the nation directs its attention to the events taking place at the United States Supreme Court, specifically, the oral arguments surrounding the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, now may be a good time to evaluate some of the “progress” we have made, both as a country and as a culture, where the Progressive Movement’s efforts are concerned.
I say that now may be a good time for this evaluation because as the Justices of the Supreme Court debate the merits of the case before them, we stand on the precipice of the largest expansion in government authority since the institution of the income tax. And while both Republicans and Democrats; Conservatives and Liberals, have all had a hand in the expansion of government, no other group has celebrated that expansion over our liberties, over our freedoms, more than Progressives.
Now, I am not an overly religious man. As regular readers understand, my Mother would be very happy if I attended church more often. But even I can see that at the hand of the Progressive Movement the idea of secularism has become totalitarian. In a nation built, in part, as a sanctuary for the religious (this is the onus behind the First Amendment’s right to “Freedom of Religion”), people of the cloth are being placed under arrest for preaching on public grounds.
In Hemet, California, the Rev. Mark Mackey, a preacher with the Calvary Chapel, was arrested for “preaching to a captive audience” as he read passages from the bible outside a still closed Department of Motor Vehicles building. The arresting California Highway Patrol Officer said to Mackey, as he was leading him away in handcuffs, “You’re not allowed to preach here because this is a captive audience…You can preach on your own property.” One so-called constitutional attorney said Mackey was “creating an intimidating situation.”
In Florida, as the details of a highly publicized crime are still coming into focus, a volunteer neighborhood watch captain, George Zimmerman, is in hiding because the New Black Panther Party has put a $10,000 bounty on his head, along with a “dead or alive” precursor, for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin (and we all thought vigilantism was a thing of the past). And as race-baiting activists – the likes of self-anointed Revs. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, both whom have become quite wealthy in their pursuits of keeping the nation divided along racial lines, andelected officials call for – and incredibly so – the arrest of a man before an investigation into the event is even concluded, racist organization La Raza (“The Race” in Spanish) has issued a statement questioning his ethnicity. “His background is not clear…Is he Latino? Is he white? Is he both? Who knows?,” La Raza spokeswoman Lisa Navarrete said in an interview with The Daily Caller. Zimmerman’s Mother is Hispanic.
Speaking of the New Black Panthers, as the men and women of our military fight and die to liberate whole national populations from the tyranny of Islamofascist oppression, our own Justice Department, led by Eric Holder – who is turning out to be not only a racist but a racial activist by proof of both his actions and inactions, refuses to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law, paramilitary-clad, night-stick wielding New Black Panther racists who stood outside a Philadelphia polling place during the 2008 General Election intimidating every Caucasian voter who tried to enter. J. Christian Adams, a former Justice Department Voting Rights Section attorney, who served in the Holder regime, has testified that orders were given not to prosecute any Black defendants…period.
Decide now to fire the President in November, and start now preparing to win your precinct, district, county, state, and nation
There are far more reasons to fire President Barack Hussein Obama than can be addressed in a single column. Here are just a few reasons that should be considered.
President Obama believes that the U.S. Constitution is flawed, and despite his oath to protect and defend it, he has consistently ignored it. Almost immediately after taking office, he assumed power not granted to him by the Constitution. He took control over the auto industry. He picked GM’s board of directors. He cancelled debt owed to bond holders and gave that money to labor unions instead. He, through his people, decided which dealerships would close and which would remain open. Most of those that were closed, not surprisingly, were owned by Republican supporters.
President Obama sent military forces to bomb Libya without even notifying Congress. No war was declared, and, and according to the War Powers Act (Section 2(c)), to use military power without Congressional approval, the nation has to be under eminent threat of attack. Libya was not about to attack the U.S. His Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, told a Congressional committee that the Obama administration would seek permission from the U.N. for military action, before informing Congress of what action was taken.
Forty-three Presidents and 111 Congresses found no authority in the Constitution to force free Americans to purchase a government-specified product. Obama assumed and declared this authority in his “ObamaCare,” bill.
There is no Constitutional authority for these actions.
It is so damn funny that Obama claims he never heard any rants like this during the 20+ years he spent in Wright’s pews.
Via The Blaze:
- Rev. Jeremiah Wright delivered three fiery sermons about faith, race and politics at Metropolitan Baptist Church in S.C.
- Wright said Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas worships “some other God” outside of “Allah and Yahweh” (who the “same” he says)
- Obama’s former pastor called Thomas Jefferson “a pedophile”
• He sees “white supremacy” driving “world policy”
- Wright condemned the U.S. military, saying, “fighting for peace is like raping for virginity.”
The Rev. Jeremiah Wright became a household name during the 2008 presidential campaign. The fiery preacher, who was President Barack Obama’s pastor for two decades, has since retired from his position at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Illinois. However, he’s still an active figure in geopolitical and faith movements, as his bizarre commentaries often offend detractors and inspire intense debate.
Last week, Wright spoke at Metropolitan Baptist Church in Charleston, West Virginia, as part of a week-long revival event. His controversial words took aim at Thomas Jefferson, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, the media and plenty of other targets
You know what they say about, birds of a feather.
A recent meeting titled The Weather Underground Meets Occupy Wall Street, held in a small city in upstate New York, was billed as a mundane book event to celebrate U.S. “political prisoner” David Gilbert’s new memoir, Love and Struggle.
- The meeting was designed to discuss common struggles between the Weather Underground and Occupy Wall Street and, in particular, the shared vision between David Gilbert (another member serving jail time for his role in the Brinks murders) and the Occupy Wall Street movement.
- In attendance or serving on the panel were five major players in the domestic terrorism group: Naomi Jaffe, Jeff Jones, Eleanor Stein, Suzanne Ross, and Kathy Boudin.
- All of the above named have been involved in some of the most radical elements of the Weather Underground, including assaults on police officers, bomb plots, and murders.
- All had been involved with the notorious Bill Ayers, some of which lived in a San Francisco “bomb factory” that several entities have claimed was used in the San Francisco police station bombing that killed Officer Brian McDonnell.
- A former Weather Underground member turned FBI informant makes several interesting observations about the meeting, including his assertion that the group hasn’t “changed the color of any of their stripes even after all of these years.” He also adds, “It makes me sick to watch and listen to this kind of BS, especially when I realize that 100 years ago or less, these people would all be in prison or shot as traitors.”
Overzealous to the point where a federal judge ordered the Obama administration to pay $120K to one of its targets.
Via Washington Examnier:
Justly regarded as the most aggressive abortion defender to ever occupy the White House, President Obama has spent two years prosecuting pro-life advocates, using the Department of Justice as his weapon.
This campaign is so legally groundless that a federal judge recently ordered the DOJ to pay $120,000 to one of its targets, a pro-lifer caught peaceably distributing anti-abortion literature outside a Florida abortion facility.
When Mary Susan Pine was young, she had an abortion. The trauma and regret led her to become a pro-life activist, forming a nonprofit that tries to dissuade mothers from aborting their unborn children and provides women with pregnancy testing, sonograms, and post-pregnancy help.
This is legal. So why did Eric Holder and the DOJ go after Pine? The court lays out the facts citing the testimony of the police officer present:
“A green sedan began to enter the PWC premises through the exit driveway. As soon as Ms. Pine noticed the sedan, she ‘quickly started to walk faster towards the car’ and stopped at the front side, causing the vehicle to stop. Immediately after the vehicle came to a stop, Ms. Pine approached the driver’s window. The driver rolled the window down, and Ms. Pine proceeded to solicit the male driver and the female passenger. At some point during the conversation, Ms. Pine handed the passengers a pamphlet through the open driver’s side window.”
Obama’s DOJ charged that this violated a 1994 law called the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances. The FACE Act places federal civil penalties on obstructing access to abortion clinics — penalties that don’t apply outside, say, a plastic surgeon’s office, a gun dealer, or any other institution.
