The IRS is demonstrating vigor in enforcing the rules for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations against influencing elections with its recent revocation of the tax-exempt status of the conservative Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty for anti-Hillary Clinton and John Kerry articles posted to the group’s Web site.

Perhaps the non-partisan Internal Revenue Service will balance the scales of justice by revoking the tax-exempt status of the Democratic Party front group Media Matters for America.

The IRS won’t have to look far for evidence. The Twitter profile of Media Matters Chairman David Brock would be a good place to start. There Brock proudly identifies himself as a “Democratic political activist.”

Brock uses the Twitter account to conduct Media Matters business as demonstrated in this tweet cc’d to former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson on Tuesday.

A look at Tuesday evening’s home page for Media Matters shows several articles attacking and defending potential 2016 presidential candidates. Curiously, Democrat Hillary Clinton is defended in several articles while Republican Ben Carson is attacked.

Fox’s Erick Erickson: Hillary Clinton “Is Going To Be Old” In 2016, “I Don’t Know How Far Back They Can Pull Her Face”

The Hypocrisy Of Peggy Noonan’s “Modest” Attack On Hillary Clinton

Fox Surprised Public Isn’t Buying Its Efforts To Smear Clinton

6 Things You Should Know About Conservative Media Darling Dr. Ben Carson

Several of the recent articles defending Hillary Clinton are listed under the ‘Elections’ page at Media Matters which ought make it pretty clear to the IRS who Media Matters is supporting for the 2016 presidential election.

Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, April 22, 2014, 10:56 PM

Outrageous!
TSA agents were recently filmed giving a patdown to a 6 year-old and her 2 year-old brother.
The Daily Mail reported:

A video has surfaced online showing what appears to be a pair of Transportation Security Administration officers giving two young children full-body patdowns at an airport.

The one-and-a-half minute was shared by user khanzahir100 on YouTube last Friday.

In the description of the video, a man wrote that two TSA agents subjected his two-year-old son and six-year-old daughter to patdowns because he had been selected ‘as usual’ for a security check due to his name.

Hitler birthday poster in Milan (Il Messaggero)

Hitler’s Nazis murdered over 20 Million people but that horrendous fact doesn’t seem to be preventing a growth in the National Socialist ideology in Italy.

According to an article on The Local, supporters of Nazism celebrated Hitler’s birthday in Milan by decorating the Italian town with pro-Hitler posters:

Supporters of Adolf Hitler in Milan emblazoned the city with posters of the German dictator over the weekend in honour of his 125th birthday.

The posters were put up overnight on Saturday by members of the National Socialist Workers Movement, a neo-Nazi group that originated in the Lombardy town of Varese in 2002.

In comments published in Il Messaggero, the group said the posters were a “simple gesture” to mark the birthday of “the greatest leader that Europe has known so far”. Hitler was born on April 20th 1889.

“Every year, we feel it’s important to pay respect to a man who knew how to take a nation’s hand and guide it to rescue, until its tragic end.

Harry Reid: “Something Will Happen” To Stop Rancher Cliven Bundy

Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, April 22, 2014, 6:22 PM

Senator Harry Reid told reporters the Bundy Ranch dispute is not over.
“Something will happen.”

CBS Local reported:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land.

“It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.”

Reid called militias staying at Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch “domestic violent terrorist-wannabes.”

Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., disagreed with Reid, telling KSNV that these militia members are “patriots” and took issue with how the U.S. Bureau of Land Management handled the situation.

“I take more issues with the BLM coming in with a paramilitary army of individuals with snipers. I’m talking to people and groups that are there at the event. Your own government with sniper lenses on you. It made a lot of people very uncomfortable,” Heller told KSNV.

The junior Nevada senator also stated that he wants congressional hearings held about BLM trying to round-up Bundy’s cattle.

“I want to talk about the fact that they have this kind of authority and the ability to bully and to come in with 200 armed men into a situation like this. I would like to have hearings. I want to find out who’s accountable for this,” Bundy told KSNV, adding he wants to find out who “gave the marching orders.”

Whining Nancy-Boy… John Kerry: “It Was Easier” During the Cold War

Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, April 22, 2014, 2:57 PM

During the Cold War–
John Kerry secretly met with representatives from the Vietcong in France while the Vietnam War is raging in southeast Asia in 1970.

Senator John Kerry and Senator Tom Harkin during the Cold War met with the communist radical Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua in 1985.

Today, John F. Kerry said, “It was easier,” during the Cold War.
AFP reported:

Secretary of State John Kerry attested Tuesday to the massively complex challenges Washington faces in Ukraine, Russia, Iran and the Middle East, declaring “it was easier” during the Cold War.

In a candid moment during a State Department speech, the top US diplomat said changing global power dynamics made a quaint memory of the early East-West stalemate, when American children would “crouch under our desks at school and practice” safety steps for a possible nuclear attack.

“During the Cold War… it was easier than it is today — simpler is maybe a way to put it,” Kerry told aid and development experts.

“The choices were less varied, less complicated, more stark, more clear: Communism, democracy, West, East, the Iron Curtain.”

He said “multiple emerging powers,” unleashed forces like radical Islam, and “too many failed states” have dramatically complicated the landscape, requiring a form of diplomatic precision that was not absolutely necessary decades ago.

In the post-war 1950s and 1960s, Kerry said, “we could make really bad decisions and still win, because we were pretty much the sole dominant economic and military power around.

What he means is – it was easier – working against his country.

 

Another Obama Milestone… US Middle Class No Longer Most Affluent in the World

Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, April 22, 2014, 2:26 PM

us middle class obama

Barack Obama promised to remake America in his 2009 Inaugural speech.

And, he has.
America is now poorer, less respected and $17 trillion dollars in debt.
And the US middle class is no longer the most affluent in the world.
The New York Times reported:

The American middle class, long the most affluent in the world, has lost that distinction.

…Although economic growth in the United States continues to be as strong as in many other countries, or stronger, a small percentage of American households is fully benefiting from it. Median income in Canada pulled into a tie with median United States income in 2010 and has most likely surpassed it since then. Median incomes in Western European countries still trail those in the United States, but the gap in several — including Britain, the Netherlands and Sweden — is much smaller than it was a decade ago.

 

SHOCK VIDEO – Jerk Police Officer Trips, Injures Students After Soccer Match

Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, April 22, 2014, 2:00 PM

A video shot by a student captured police officer George Bermudez tripping and pushing students rushing the field after Vandegrift High School’s state soccer win Saturday.
What a jerk.

The officer was put on leave after the incident.
KXAN reported:

Georgetown police have placed an officer on paid administrative leave pending an internal affairs investigation into his actions following a state championship soccer game held in the city over the weekend.

The move to put Officer George Bermudez on leave came after an incident following Vandegrift High School’s win in the University Interscholastic League championship game on Saturday. In video taken from the game broadcast, as well as from fans, you can see what appears to be a uniformed Georgetown police officer tripping and pushing students as they rush onto the field after the win.

Bermudez has been with the department since 2005.

A spokesman for the Georgetown Police Department said parents began emailing the department early Sunday morning, alerting them of the video.

“After personally watching the videos, the actions of my officer are very concerning to me as well,” said Georgetown Police Chief Wayne Nero.

As you see students rush the field after the win, a uniformed Georgetown police officer can be seen sticking his leg out to trip a high school student. He then tries to trip another student.

Then, YouTube video shot by a student at the game shows one of them limping off the field.
