VINDICATION IN THE TEA PARTY CASE AGAINST IRS

[Ed. Note: Hold on to your hats, folks. This is progress: it is not the same lawsuit involving the SATP but a very similar one for the NorCal Tea Party. As the author says, there is a long, long way to go but at least the process did not stop with this case. Republished from Breitbart.com, July 17, 2014, by Mark Meckler.]

As evidence of IRS wrongdoing mounts, it’s great to get some good news. Today, U.S. District Judge Susan Dlott rejected the IRS’s motion to dismiss the NorCal Tea Party’s class action lawsuit.

The government had the audacity to claim that citizens have no right to redress against their own government, regardless of the behavior of the IRS. The judge disagreed, stating that not only could the case go forward, but also setting up a status conference date, indicating that the case will not simply languish on the docket.

In other words, folks, the IRS is going to have to answer for its illegal conduct.

LEFTY FLIPS OUT OVER BILLBOARD ON $15 MINIMUM WAGE

[Ed. Note: Watching the Left go over the edge is fun. Point out that raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour can lead to more automation and thus fewer jobs is enough to make them start calling names and disparaging the character of those doing the pointing. Republished from AmericanThinker.com, July 20, 2014, by Thomas Lifson, "Hilarious: lefty flips out over billboard explaining the consequences of $15 minimum wage."]

The left-leaning tech blog Pando seems to be angry about a lot of aspects of reality.* Witness David Carr flipping out over this billboard that he spotted in San Francisco, “walking home from Pando’s office a few nights ago.”

SF building billboard

The billboard just educates people about reality. If you raise the cost of labor, then it becomes economical to replace labor with automation, in this case touch screens, which are declining in cost as labor…

DIVERSITY FOR THEE, BUT NOT FOR ME

[Ed. Note: Diversity when Mom was growing up in Aliquippa PA meant there were 12 distinctly ethnic neighborhoods with just one thing in common: they were all Americans and wanted to be assimilated. Progressives practice diversity that is 12 different groups of oppressed minorities that must be pandered to—and we must practice it, not them. Republished from TheAmericanConservative.com, July 20, 2014, by Jim Yardley.]

The Progressive mantra of “diversity über alles” is one of the most honored shibboleths in the pantheon of the stated beliefs held by those on the left.

Like all shibboleths, it is a test to see if common folk are “gun toting, Bible clinging” Neanderthals or are they part of the enlightened, educated elites to whom the rest of us must surrender our individual beliefs, opinions and thoughts.

But as with all that the Progressives say, the meaning of the words being used is warped and misrepresented.

SUN. MORNING SHOWS IGNORE REPORT WARNING OBAMA OF BORDER CRISIS

[Ed. Note: Usually if the Washington Post drops a bomb on an Administration in its Sunday editions, the Sunday talk shows are all over it, like a dog on a bone. Well, that is if it's not a Democrat Administration. Fox and Friends was the only show to cover it Sunday and Fox News Sunday, along with the alphabet networks, totally ignored it. Republished from NewsBusters.org, July 20, 2014, by Jeffrey Meyer, "Sunday Morning Shows Ignore Report Showing Obama Admin. 'Warned of Brewing Border Crisis.']

Obama and kid-egals

The front-page of the Washington Post on Sunday, July 20 had a damning headline accusing the Obama administration of “being warned of brewing border crisis” but only Fox and Friends Sunday covered the report.

NBC’s Today, CBS Sunday Morning, and ABC’s Good Morning America, failed to cover how in a 2013 report prepared for the Obama administration “the team from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) raised alarms about the federal government’s…

2014: OBAMA’S AMERICA

[Ed. Note: Victor Davis Hanson is skilled at getting to the central point of what's happening in America. This summer we're being "treated" to one disaster after another with the next one popping up to take the last one off the evening news. As he points out, the Fall is a long way off. Republished from National Review Online, July 17, 2014, by Victor Davis Hanson.]

Scandals now come so fast that each new mess makes us forget the previous one.

The summer of 2014 will go down in history as the season when America fell apart. Let’s take a tour of the disasters.

DOJ: WE HEARD ABOUT IRS MISSING EMAILS ON THE NEWS

[Ed. Note: The Department of Justice claims they heard in the media that the IRS' dog ate seven hard drives at once. Several recent emails did the math and found that the odds of winning the Florida Lottery 342 times in a row match the odds of that happening. After a year of looking into it, this is the best they could come up with for their super sleuthing. Just another day at the office for the most transparent Administration in history. Republished from The Daily Caller, July 17, 2014, by Patrick Howley.]

Hard Drive Fairy Tale

James Cole, deputy attorney general in the Department of Justice, testified Thursday that the DOJ heard about the destruction of IRS officials’ emails in the news, even though DOJ has formally been investigating the IRS for more than a year.

“I think we learned about it after that, from press accounts,” Cole told House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee chairman Rep. Jim Jordan at a hearing Thursday on the DOJ’s response to the wave of computer crashes at the IRS that wiped out…
