Jumping Joe Biden was in Boston today on the anniversary of the Marathon bombings.
Biden told the survivors of last year’s terrorist attack – “It was worth it.”

“To those quote “survivors,” My God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth… It was worth it. I mean this sincerely, just to hear each of you speak. You’re truly, truly inspiring. I’ve never heard anything so beautiful with what all of you just said.”

Twitchy has reaction.

More… Patty added:

Biden either thinks words up as he goes or he has a speech writer out to get him.

 

 

BREAKING: Tea Party Patriots Sues Obama IRS and Treasury for 501(c)4 Documents

The Tea Party Patriots, the nation’s largest Tea Party organization, sued the IRS and US Treasury for documents on Lois Lerner and the Obama Administration’s secret planning to impose restrictions on citizens’ free speech.
Via the Tea Party Patriots website:

Tea Party Patriots today filed a lawsuit in US District Court for the District of Columbia against the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Department of Treasury, asking the court to force the release of documents shedding light on the agency’s proposal for burdensome regulations for 501c4 citizens groups, and the roles played by former IRS official Lois Lerner and other Administration officials in developing the regulations.

“Americans deserve to know the truth about how the IRS is trying to deprive us and other citizens of our First Amendment rights to free speech. Citizens shouldn’t have to go to court to find out what sort of secret activities their government is up to,” said Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin. “It’s truly shameful; President Obama promised a transparent government but instead, people have to file lawsuits just to learn the truth.” Tea Party Patriots was among those groups targeted by the IRS for intimidation and delaying the group’s application for tax-exempt status and will be directly impacted by the proposed regulations.

“With Monday’s announcement that the IRS may issue revised regulations for groups such as Tea Party Patriots, getting to the origin of the Administration’s plans to muzzle us becomes even more urgent,” continued Mrs. Martin. “We plan to submit a new FOIA request this week to learn what has transpired behind the scenes since the proposed rules were first issued, and to add new claims to our lawsuit if the IRS and Treasury continue to ignore our requests for information.”

The suit seeks documents relating to the IRS’s “Guidance for Tax Exempt Social Welfare Organizations on Candidate-Related Political Activities,” announced November 29, 2013. To date, the IRS has refused to provide any documents to Tea Party Patriots, which first requested them on December 10, 2013 under the Freedom of Information Act.

“The Proposed Regulations would impose significant burdens and restrictions on the First Amendment activities, speech, and associational rights of every social welfare organization in America,” the suit alleges, arguing that Tea Party Patriots and the public have the right to see any documents related to the IRS proposal. The proposed rulemaking resulted in more than 150,000 public comments, which IRS officials described as a record number of responses to a proposed regulation.

The lawsuit makes note of IRS communications released by the House Ways and Means Committee and charges that, “high ranking individuals within the Treasury and the IRS began as early as June 2012 to develop new regulations “off plan” and in secret.”

Today the Republican National Committee also filed a lawsuit against the Obama IRS for withholding documents sought by the RNC nearly one year ago.

 

 

RECORD NUMBER of Black Republicans Are On 2014 Alabama Primary Ballot

Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, April 15, 2014, 7:24 PM

A record number of black Republicans are on the 2014 Alabama primary ballot.
BET reported:

Historically, Alabama hasn’t had the best track record on race relations. So, it may be surprising to some that in 2014, 11 Black Republicans are seeking elective office. In 2010 and 2012 there was just one. Meet nine of the candidates whose political fates will be determined on June 3. — Joyce Jones (@BETpolitichick)

Including Pamela Blackmore-Jenkins–

Pamela Blackmore-Jenkins, who is running for an Alabama House seat to represent a district in the Birmingham area, has a rather remarkable story. The native New Yorker was a married mother of two before her high school graduation and was later a divorced mother of three. That didn’t stop her from going to college or earning a law degree in 2013. The Republican activist says she’s running for office because “I have always been a results-driven, no excuses, problem solver. People want results and I must deliver. I am a conservative that will take action, work hard, and bring people together.”

 

Rory Reid Says Cliven Bundy Should Be Prosecuted (Video)

In December 2013 it was revealed Senate Majority leader Harry Reid personally pressured DHS on behalf of his son Rory’s casino project.

It’s not the first time Harry Reid used his position to help out his son’s financial interests. In 2012 Reid helped out a Chinese firm that was represented by his son, Rory.

Today Rory Reid, son of Senator Harry Reid, told reporters today Cliven Bundy should be prosecuted.
Via Real Clear Politics:

RORY REID, SON OF SEN. HARRY REID: We believe in a country in which we are subject to laws and you can’t just ignore the laws we don’t like. I think clearly if state and local prosecutors look at this more closely, they’re going to find that he broke the law and he should be prosecuted.

Up to One Million New Yorkers Fail to Register “Assault Weapons” by Today’s Deadline

Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, April 15, 2014, 3:43 PM

As many as a million New York residents have failed to register their “assault weapons” and “high capacity” magazines with the state. The registration deadline was today.
Guns.com reported:

Forbes reported:

This year April 15 is more than the tax deadline for an estimated one million New York State residents. It’s also the deadline to register “assault weapons” and “high-capacity” magazines. If they don’t, they’ll begin living outside the law. A lot of them have decided to do just that. They’ve decided to practice civil disobedience even though failure to register an “assault weapon” by the deadline is punishable as a “class A misdemeanor,” which means a maximum sentence of one year in prison.

I put “assault weapon” and “high-capacity” in quotes because their definitions vary by state—they’re political terms. In New York State, the SAFE Act passed by the legislature and signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo in January 2013, uses an expansive and elaborate definition of “assault weapon” that includes a lot more than AR-15s. Now even a semiautomatic Remington Model 1100 shotgun—a popular shotgun first made in 1963 that is used by millions of hunters and skeet shooters—is an “assault weapon” in New York State if the shotgun has a pistol grip. Many other commonly owned pistols, shotguns and rifles are also now labeled “assault weapons” in New York State.

When I asked the New York State Police how many New York gun owners had registered the guns they own that now fit somewhere into the state’s expansive “assault weapons” category the state responded: “New York State Police cannot release information related to the registration of assault weapons including the number of assault weapons registered. Those records you seek are derived from information collected for the State Police database and are, therefore, exempt from disclosure.”

This is the same dilemma Connecticut gun owners found themselves in at the end of 2013.

 

You’re Not Wanted, Whitey… University President Wants Fewer White Kids on Campus (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, April 15, 2014, 1:39 PM

Whitey Not Wanted!
Western Washington University is looking for ways to be less white.
President Bruce Shepard calls the current number of white students a -failure.

Campus Reform reported:

A school-wide questionnaire at Western Washington University (WWU) asked the community “How do we make sure that in future years ‘we are not as white as we are today?’”

The question, released through the communications and marketing department’s daily newsletter Western Today, comes on the heels of admonishments given in multiple convocation addresses by WWU President Bruce Shepard for the university’s “failure” to be less white.

“Every year, from this stage and at this time, you have heard me say that, if in decades ahead, we are as white as we are today, we will have failed as university,” Shepard said in the 2012 speech.

And in a recent blog post on WWU’s website, Shepard echoes these sentiments, saying those who do not agree “have not thought through the implications of what is ahead for us or, more perniciously, assume we can continue unchanged.”

 

Youth Mob Knocks Baltimore Bicyclist to Ground, Beat Him in the Street (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, April 15, 2014, 1:04 PM

Another day, another black youth mob attack…

The black youths threw a bottle at the man, knocked him off his bike and beat him on the ground.
CBS Local reported, via The Last Tradition:

An evening bike ride for a cyclist turned violent after he was attacked by a group of teenagers–and it’s caught on camera.

The man was wearing a helmet with one additional feature his attackers did not know about–a camera positioned on top. Now that video is in the hands of Baltimore City Police, who are combing through the images.

It was a dark Saturday evening when Mike Bowman, 32, peddled his way down Guilford Avenue toward Hampden, where he was meeting friends.

“There’s a bunch of kids that hang there at Lanvale. Before I knew it, there’s a guy chasing me. A bottle goes past my head,” Bowman said.

In the video, you can see a teenager in a white T-shirt chasing Bowman, as he turned and looked behind him. As he crossed the intersection, he was intercepted by several teens on bikes, who knocked him to the ground.

The camera caught the teenagers’ violent actions.

“I go down. I just tuck and start taking hits. It was coming from all angles,” he said.

He screamed for help to alert neighbors. They rushed to his aid as the teens ran off.

 

Woman Living a Life of Luxury Sentenced for Stealing $377,000 in Government Benefits

A Florida woman living a life of luxury in a one-acre manicured lot and driving a Mercedes was sentenced for stealing up to $377,000 in government benefits using 12 aliases.
WPXI reported:

With a round pool in the backyard, a Mercedes and a boat in the driveway and a greenhouse and an aviary nearby, the Florida house doesn’t look like it was owned by someone who qualified for public assistance.

But it was.

While living the life of luxury on a 1-acre manicured lot, Gloria Valle-Clas collected between $305,000 and $377,000 in food stamps, housing assistance and Medicaid benefits. Using two separate Social Security numbers and as many as 12 aliases, she duped government agencies into sending her monthly assistance checks and picking up her medical bills for nearly a decade.

“Conduct like this should incense all Americans,” U.S. District Judge Kenneth Ryskamp said Thursday. “To be ripping off our government — every agency by every means possible.”
While her attorney Gregg Lerman suggested a roughly 3 1/2-year sentence, Ryskamp said that wasn’t enough. He tacked on roughly another year.

“I just think this is about as low as it gets,” Ryskamp said in sentencing Valle-Clas to 51 months in prison, the maximum allowed under federal rules. He also ordered her to pay $283,359 in restitution.

 

Ukraine Launches Military Operation Against Pro-Russian Militia in East

FOX News reported:

Ukraine’s acting president said Tuesday that a military operation to quash a pro-Russian insurgency has started in eastern Ukraine after more than a week of seizures of government building in the latest standoff to grip the country.

Oleksandr Turchynov said the “anti-terrorist” operation began in the early morning hours in the northern Donetsk region, where the majority of the pro-Russian forces are located, The Wall Street Journal reported.

“Overnight, an anti-terrorist operation began in the north of Donetsk. But it will be phased, responsible and balanced. The purpose of the actions, I stress once again, is to protect the citizens of Ukraine,” Turchynov told Ukraine’s parliament, according to Interfax.

“The plans of the Russian Federation were and remain brutal. They want not only for Donbass (Donetsk region), but for the whole south and east of Ukraine to be engulfed by fire,” Turchynov continued. The aim of the operation is to “defend the citizens of Ukraine, to stop terror, stop crime and stop attempts to tear our country into pieces,” he said.

The Interior Ministry in the Donetsk region said the police station in Kramatorsk that had been seized by pro-Russian gunmen was “liberated” Tuesday, but a nearby small airport was still controlled by the militia.
