Media sleight of hand

James Risen writes for this paper. He told them what he thinks, and it is not pretty.

The fact stands true that if you’re not careful, the media will have you hating those that are being attacked and loving those that are doing the attacking.

Compromise: An agreement between two men to do what both agree is wrong. – Lord Edward Cecil

The American people are inundated on a daily basis with unlawful bills being presented, passed, or signed by Obama. Meanwhile, scandals pop up all over the place around the administration…and instead of taking responsibility for his actions, Obama uses millions of tax-payer dollars to take a family vacation to Africa. The long train of abuses by the Obama administration has the American people in an outrage. And rightly so.

Here we are, it is day whatever in the IRS scandal. New evidence is heard daily but it has to be wrung out of the establishment like turn buckling a washcloth. The new daily evidence just uncovers even more horrifying crimes. I don’t use that word easily, horrifying. But soon maybe I will. Because ladies and gentlemen, it gets much worse. Much darker and much more sinister.

Immigration reform: legal bribery

Bribery in immigration reform isn't done quite this way, but the results are the same.

The immigration reform bill now percolating through the Senate will solve nothing. If it passes, the United States will have yet another constituency for politicians and employers (or labor leaders, or both) to exploit. The Gang of Eight know this. For that reason, they resorted to out-and-out bribery, that politicians call “pork,” to get it through the Senate. And yesterday and today, a big alternative-media organ called them on it and made them squeal like – well, like stuck pigs.

IRS, White House worked together

The IRS scandal gained a new face - in Congress.

No one can doubt it any longer. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the White House worked together to steal the Election of 2012 and try to destroy the Tea Party. They succeeded at the first, but failed at the second. The Tea Party won by enduring. They must follow this up with a push to abolish the IRS and change the tax code.

Eric Holder steps in it

Eric Holder, or at least his aide, got caught with his pants down.

Eric Holder has shown more contempt for the law than has any other Attorney General in history. And now he might finally have blown the gaffe for good. Earlier this month he denied having anything to do with “prosecuting” reporters. Eight days later, a mainstream news organ gave him the lie. And now the Judiciary Committee will investigate him. Officially.

Obama’s Crown vs. Washington’s Cross

As you ponder the spectacle of Obama acting like a king, remember this: Criminals mock society’s laws. Your compassion is a weakness that your enemies do not and will not share.

Glenn Beck, selective conspiracy king

The Obama birth certificate. Why is this still accepted as valid?

Everyone who watches Glenn Beck on his internet show knows, he begins each broadcast by announcing, “Welcome to the Glenn Beck Show, the network you are building. Glenn may have been correct in that statement since TPATH and many others have not only linked to his TV Show, his radio show and his many publications and events, but also, thousands of us have called cable and satellite companies in an effort to get them to take Glenn Beck TV.

IRS scandal should surprise no one

The IRS scandal gained a new face - in Congress.

Yesterday the scandal involving the Internal Revenue Service broke wide-open. Angry members of a key subcommittee (including half its Democrats!) took turns denouncing the agency and especially its leaders. But few of them got the true point. The IRS scandal should surprise no one. Least of all should it surprise any in Congress. For they, more than anyone else, created the monstrous tax code that needs a monstrous agency to enforce it.

IRS scandal makes case for tax reform

The IRS scandal grows by the hour. Every hour shows more proof that the Internal Revenue Service behaved badly, and always has. But people aren’t looking at the real scandal. The real scandal is a tax code that needs an IRS to enforce it. Our tax laws let, even make, the IRS ask things about you that are none of anyone’s business but yours. Such laws are not fit for governing a free people.
