Lois Lerner not sorry?

The IRS scandal gained a new face - in Congress.

This morning, Politico released their “exclusive” with Lois Lerner. (See also these secondary reports at The Daily Caller and from UPI.) She once served as Director for Tax-exempt Organizations at the IRS. While so serving she selectively applied the law. Tax collectors have done this since the first kings and emperors formed the first tax agencies. And she puffs herself up with pride for this.

Gov. Christie, who are you?

Chris Christie of New Jersey: did he learn anything?

Dear Governor Christie: the scope and intent of this open letter is not meant to disparage you unfairly.  But…in respect to all which has occurred during your tenure, what you have done and not done, things you have said and not said, these two questions beg for answers:

American ignorance aids WH

The Constitution is not dead

 

Where knowledge is a duty, ignorance is a crime.

– Thomas Paine

The American people and their representatives are guilty of dereliction of duty when it comes to the failure to impeachment the criminal in office, Barack Hussein Obama, as well as this criminal administration. America is adding strength to tyranny by giving permission to destroy for yet another two years.

Oathbreakers

The Constitution is not dead

Our Constitution is clear about what the federal government can and cannot do. Article 1, Section 8i, specifically defines the enumerated powers of the federal government. The rest of the Constitution was designed to keep tight reins on government and to lay out with great specificity what the powers are of each branch of government; how our representatives are to be elected; their qualifications; and a whole range of other operating procedures within our government. Our Founders did this because they understood the propensity of all governments and the people that run them to become power-crazed resulting in the continuous degeneration of the liberties of their citizens. They also had the foresight to include 10 amendments to the Constitution that protected the rights of our citizens that they deemed extraordinarily important, and which our government was to both protect and not infringe upon; hence we call these amendments our Bill of Rights.

America’s bloodless coup

This man knew how to lead a coup d'état.

The American Patriot in 2014 is a frustrated human being. Many have been sounding the alarm that our country is being torn asunder by the incompetent, the illegitimate, the opportunist, and the globalist. While all of this is true, the overriding message may be substantially worse. Our country isn’t being torn asunder; it is being taken over. Let me rephrase: it’s already been taken over.

Power of One

Power of One can beat RINOs

I continue to wrestle with the Gallup Poll reporti regarding the most liberal and the most conservative states in the Union. The poll stated that after the 2012 presidential election, the nation was 38% conservative as opposed to 23% liberal with the balance attributed mostly to moderates. The breakdown in New Jersey, notorious for being “blue” and #9 on Gallup’s 10 most liberal states list, is more than interesting. According to Gallup, the Garden State is 27.1% liberal and 37.6% moderate, which leaves 35.3% of the state conservative. The stats for Massachusetts, another notorious blue state and number 3 on Gallup’s most liberal list, is 38.1% moderate, 30.2% liberal and 31.7% conservative. The poll stats for these two states indicate that the liberals with their lower percentage rates dominate the conservatives. In other words, the minority is dominating the majority.

Thad Cochran will lose anyway

Thad Cochran

Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) can’t win the general election. His campaign did many disgusting and possibly illegal things. But suppose he wins the legal battles to come? Suppose no judge or jury can or will convict him or his campaign? He still can’t win. Because he laid himself wide-open to a common Democratic attack. So CNAV repeats: he will wind up hoist by his own petard.

Thad Cochran: specious story

Thad Cochran

The campaign staff of Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss) vigorously deny buying votes with direct cash payments. But the key witness in this affair has four text messages that speak to such payments. Yesterday the chief spokesman for the Thad Cochran campaign tried to explain them away. And his explanations are worse than specious.

Thad Cochran: more evidence

Ballot box. The Electoral College compact relies on stuffing this.

Evidence continues to mount against Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.). Yesterday a witness came forward and charged that Thad Cochran paid voters to vote in the Republican runoff. If this charge holds, then Thad Cochran could lose the nomination by default. He might also face expulsion from the United States Senate. Either way, he would find himself hoist by his own petard.

Chris McDaniel still fights

Ballot box. The Electoral College compact relies on stuffing this.

Chris McDaniel, as everyone knows, “lost” the Mississippi Republican runoff election to Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.). The quote marks have a reason behind them.  In fact, Thad Cochran won with at least 35,000 votes, and maybe 38,000, that normally would have gone to a Democrat. And if enough of them did go to one Democrat or another in the primary earlier this month, those votes can’t count in the runoff. And with that, Chris McDaniel might win after all.
