The Obama Administration Used Alinsky Tactics & IRS To Ensure Tea Party Was Not a Factor in 2012 Peter Riehm , chairman of the Common Sense Campaign, a conservative group, was on Your World with Neal Cavuto today. Riehm told Neal that his organization withdrew their application for tax exempt status after the IRS asked for copies of all speeches and the board members’ employers. This is pure thuggery, folks. The Common Sense campaign was one of the dozens of groups that withdrew their applications after years of harassment by the Obama IRS. They weren’t alone. Several Tea Party groups shut down after continued harassment by the Obama Internal Revenue Service before the 2012 election. Delco Conservative reported: America has reached a troubling point in its long history when a presidential administration and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are suspicious of ordinary, patriotic Americans who revere their country’s founding principles and worry about high levels of government spending and debt. Beginning in 2009, Tea Party and grassroots patriot groups in Pennsylvania and other states raised concerns about the size and power of the federal government and complained about being overtaxed, and their public protests against intrusive “big government” and the Obama administration put them on the IRS’s radar. Well, it turns out Tea Party fears of unchecked government authority were well-founded in light of the IRS’s revelation that ag

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — A task force of elected officials in Newtown on Friday recommended tearing down Sandy Hook Elementary School, the school where 20 first-graders and six educators were killed in December, and rebuilding on the same site. The group of 28 town elected officials voted unanimously in favor of a plan that would construct a new building in the same location. The proposal now goes to the local school board, which has final authority. The panel had narrowed a list of choices to renovating or rebuilding on the school site or building a new school on property down the street. Each would cost between about $ 48 million and $ 60 million. The 430 surviving students are attending a renovated school renamed Sandy Hook Elementary School in the neighboring town of Monroe. Officials had said that whatever choice is made, a new or renovated school wouldn’t be ready by Aug. 27, the start of the next school year. A study found building a new school on the existing site would cost $ 57 million. Sandy Hook Elementary School hasn’t housed students since the killings. Some town residents said the school should be torn down because they couldn’t imagine sending children back there. Others favored renovating the school, with some saying that tearing it down would be a victory for evil. Residents of towns where other mass school shootings occurred have grappled with the same dilemma. Some have renovated, some have demolished. Columbine Hig
Hannah Groch-Begley: Fox Ignores Benghazi Witness Testimony Proving Obama Did Not Order Troops To “Stand Down”

Fox News ignored congressional testimony that confirmed military leadership ordered a small team of troops to remain in Tripoli in order to protect embassy staff there from possible threats during the September 2012 attacks on a U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya, instead baselessly speculating that the president must have personally told the force to "stand down." During the May 8 congressional hearings on the Benghazi attacks, witness Gregory Hicks — who was the Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. embassy in Tripoli at the time of the attacks — explained that his team had proposed that a small group of four special forces troops leave Tripoli to provide aid in Benghazi, but that they were not authorized to do so by Special Operations Command Africa, a division of the U.S. military: REP. ROBIN KELLY: You said that four military personnel were told not to the board that plane and that this call came from Special Operations Command Africa. Is that right? HICKS: That's what I understand. Fox News ignored this portion of Hicks' testimony. On Hannity the night of the hearings, host Sean Hannity disputed Fox News contributor Juan Williams' accurate explanation that "the military made this decision" to baselessly speculate the president, as Commander in Chief, must have been involved in the decision making process to ask the special forces to remain in Tripoli: HANNITY: Wait a minute, we don't have a Commander in Chief

Mr. Hicks testified this morning that the stand down order for the rescue team in Tripoli came from either AFRICOM or SOCAFRICA . General Ham. leader of AFRICOM, may have been in Washington DC at the time. AFRICOM leader General Carter Ham was never given the order to secure the consulate in Benghazi. This is what the general told Rep. Jason Chaffetz after the 9-11 Benghazi terror attack. That means only Barack Obama or Defense Secretary Panetta, the two men above the AFRICOM commander, never ordered an operation to secure the consulate.

With almost 100 Guantanamo prisoners now on a hunger strike to protest the alleged mistreatment of Korans, President Barack Obama announced on Tuesday plans to “re-engage” Congress to fulfill his failed campaign promise of shutting down the terrorist detention facility. "I'm going to go back at this," Obama promised . "I've asked my team to review everything that's currently being done in Guantanamo, everything that we can do administratively, and I'm going to re-engage with Congress to try to make the case that this is not something that's in the best interests of the American people." Obama also expressed concern over the health of the detainees on hunger strike. "I don't want these individuals to die," he said. "Obviously, the Pentagon is trying to manage the situation as best as they can. But I think all of us should reflect on why exactly are we doing this. Why are we doing this?" Obama said his first attempts to shut down Guantanamo failed because of demagoguery and post-9/11 fervor. "I think for a lot of Americans, the notion is out of sight, out of mind, and it's easy to demagogue the issue,” Obama explained. “That's what happened the first time this came up." Now, however, Obama says his second attempt to shut down Guantanamo will be different. "But we're now over a decade out [from the 9/11 terrorist attacks]. We should be wiser,” Obama chided.

“Never before have I seen such contempt for law enforcement officers as what I’ve seen from the Gang of Eight” – Chris Crane, ICE Agent union president. – Last week, ICE union chief Chris Crane won a stunning initial court victory in his lawsuit against the Obama Administration. As we reported, Federal Judge Federal Judge Reed O’Connor told the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that they had no power to refuse to deport illegal aliens, and that he was likely to strike down Obama’s virtual “DACA” amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. The ruling stunned Washington, and Crane’s lawsuit could derail Obama’s four-year effort to undermine immigration enforcement nationwide. In Senate testimony ( video below ), President of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council Crane slammed the Obama administration and the Senate’s Gang of Eight for including advocates for illegal aliens, but excluding law enforcement from providing input on the new ‘immigration reform’ legislation. Crane testified before the Senate expressing his disgust that law enforcement was shut out of the negotiations on immigration reform. Crane was sitting right next to National Council of La Raza (“The Race”) president Janet Murguia when he made his comments. La Raza – a racist intimidation group originally funded by the Mexican Government – was outrageously welcomed to help write the immigration bill, while law enforcement agents were shunned. Crane

Google Business Photos is an interesting service through which companies can pay to add interior shots of their offices to Google Street View. The temptation to abuse the service by posting goofy or shocking photos would seem to be irresistible to creative agencies—and indeed, many of them have apparently been uploading prank images. The most curious so far have come from British agency Ideas by Music, which staged a gruesome shower-stall murder for one photo—and then showed the body stuffed unceremoniously into a toilet stall a few doors down. The same agency also staged a Shining tribute by putting a red tricycle in the middle of a hallway, and a mysterious girl standing nearby. Ideas by Music doesn't mind if you stumble across these disconcerting images—on the contrary, the agency's website is the Google Street View of its interior. Let's see if some U.S. agencies can step up and have some fun with this. Via The Atlantic.

Second term, baby. Embracing his annual role as Standup Comedian-in-Chief, President Barack Obama certainly delivered the laughs at the 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner. Obama White House Correspondents' Dinner Speech 2013 Walking out to DJ Khaled's "All I Do Is Win," Obama started off his speech joking "second term, baby" and noting, "I've got 99 problems and now Jay-Z is one." The President also didn't hold back when it came to wife Michelle Obama's bangs in Photoshopped pics, or to his own notorious college pot smoking. Weighing in on the success of the site BuzzFeed, he said "I remember Buzz Feed was just something I did in college around 2 a.m. [pause] It's true." Perhaps Obama's best digs came at the media's expense, with NBC, Fox News, CNN, Dick Morris , Gallup and even the History Channel being skewered. He took plenty of shots at himself, as well. On his aging rapidly in the White House, he said: "I'm not the strapping young Muslim socialist I used to be." Referencing his trip to the George W. Bush Library last week, Obama said that some want him to build his in his birthplace … but he'd prefer the U.S. He chided Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for his 2016 election ambitions while not even finishing one Senate term – a frequent criticism of Obama in 2008. Obama and the event's host, Conan O'Brien, made for a formidable 1-2 punch. Check out Conan's remarks below and tell us who was funnier … Conan White House Correspon
