Ted Cruz’s Solution To The IRS: Abolish It!

Ted Cruz has long been a proponent of sweeping tax reform. In fact, in 2011 he published a 12-point economic plan that originally appeared in The National Review. Among the highlights of the plan were repealing Obamacare, revoking the offshore drilling moratorium, repealing Dodd-Frank and passage of a strong balanced-budget amendment. Imagine that. A balanced budget? Those words are near blasphemy to the ears of liberals. Then again, calling it blasphemy would imply that they had some sort of God other than Obama. Sorry Mr. Obama, you are not a god.

Ted Cruz most recently has been taking to twitter to push the other part of his plan which deals with taxes. He is for abolishing the IRS and moving to a fairer and flatter tax.

News Anchor Who Complained of IRS Harassment ‘Off the Air’

Larry Conners, the KMOV anchor who asked Barack Obama some tough questions about his family’s vacation habits and claimed earlier this week that he might have been harassed by the IRS as a result, has been taken off the air.

According to the St. Louis Dispatch, the station decided to give Conners a “few days off” while they looked into his allegations. KMOV news director Sean McLaughlin went out of his way to say that Conners was not suspended.

Treasury Knew of I.R.S. Inquiry in 2012, Official Says

At the first Congressional hearing into the I.R.S. scandal, J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration, told members of the House Ways and Means Committee that he informed the Treasury’s general counsel of his audit on June 4, and Deputy Treasury Secretary Neal Wolin “shortly thereafter.”

It remained unclear how much the disclosure would affect the broader debate over the I.R.S.’s problems. Complaints from Tea Party groups that the I.R.S. was singling them out became public in 2012, through media accounts.

Flashback: Chuck Schumer, Al Franken sign letter demanding IRS target Tea Party groups in 2012

It’s becoming quite clear that there’s a new McCarthyism ruling in America. If you’re a conservative or oppose Obama, you can face scrutiny by the IRS or have your information given to George Soros-funded political groups. It’s all meant to keep you in line.

In 2012, Sens. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. and Al Franken, D-Minn., and five other Democrats signed a letter demanding the IRS target conservative groups or face legislation forcing them to do so.

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MANDATES UNCONSTITUTIONAL SPEECH CODES AT COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES NATIONWIDE

In a letter sent yesterday to the University of Montana that explicitly states that it is intended as “a blueprint for colleges and universities throughout the country,” the Departments of Justice and Education have mandated a breathtakingly broad definition of sexual harassment that makes virtually every student in the United States a harasser while ignoring the First Amendment. The mandate applies to every college receiving federal funding—virtually every American institution of higher education nationwide, public or private.

The letter states that “sexual harassment should be more broadly defined as ‘any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature'” including “verbal conduct” (that is, speech). It then explicitly states that allegedly harassing expression need not even be offensive to an “objectively reasonable person of the same gender in the same situation”—if the listener takes offense to sexually related speech for any reason, no matter how irrationally or unreasonably, the speaker may be punished.

This result directly contradicts previous Department of Education guidance on sexual harassment. In 2003, the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) stated that harassment “must include something beyond the mere expression of views, words, symbols or thoughts that some person finds offensive.” Further, the letter made clear that “OCR’s standards require that the conduct be evaluated from the perspective of a reasonable person in the alleged victim’s position, considering all the circumstances, including the alleged victim’s age.”

Homosexual Novelist Bret Easton Ellis attacks ‘culturally correct gay elite’ (Anti-PC Gay Man!)

bret easton ellis

Novelist and prolix Twitterer Bret Easton Ellis is raising hackles once again by labeling such organizations as GLAAD as “the gatekeepers of politically correct gayness” in a long editorial in Out Magazine. Ellis invited further response to his argument by announcing an AMA (“ask me anything”) on Reddit, to be held at noon Pacific time today.

The Out rant, titled “In the Reign of the Gay Magical Elves,” was prompted in part by the media response to the recent coming out of basketball player Jason Collins, whom Ellis writes is being treated “as some kind of baby panda who needs to be honored and consoled and — yes — infantilized.”

Ellis goes on to criticize “gay self-patronization in the media,” which in his opinion celebrates “the Gay Man as Magical Elf, who whenever he comes out appears before us as some kind of saintly E.T. whose sole purpose is to be put in the position of reminding us only about Tolerance.”

At fault, according to Ellis, are organizations that marginalize the gay man “who doesn’t want to represent, doesn’t want to teach” and who “makes crude jokes about other gays in the media (as straight dudes do of each other constantly).” This, Ellis writes, amounts to “corporate PC fascism.”

IRS targeted groups that criticized the government, taught U.S. Constitution, IG report says

At various points over the past two years, Internal Revenue Service officials targeted nonprofit groups that criticized the government and sought to educate Americans about the U.S. Constitution, according to documents in an audit conducted by the agency’s inspector general.

The documents, obtained by The Washington Post from a congressional aide with knowledge of the findings, show that on June 29, 2011, IRS staffers held a briefing with senior agency official Lois G. Lerner in which they described giving special attention to instances where “statements in the case file criticize how the country is being run.” Lerner, who oversees tax-exempt groups for the agency, raised objections and the agency revised its criteria a week later.

But six months later, the IRS applied a new political test to groups that applied for tax-exempt status as “social welfare” groups, the document says. On Jan. 15, 2012 the agency decided to target “political action type organizations involved in limiting/expanding Government, educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, social economic reform movement.,” according to the appendix in the IG report, which was requested by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and has yet to be released.

IRS IG Report: Targeting Conservatives Began In 2010

The targeting of conservatives by the IRS started earlier and was more extensive than the IRS acknowledged last week, according to a draft IRS inspector general report obtained by ABC News.

As we reported on “Good Morning America” this morning, the IRS began targeting “Tea Party or similar organizations” in March 2010. That was when the Cincinnati-based IRS unit responsible for overseeing the applications for tax exempt status starting using the phrases “Tea Party,” “patriots” and “9/12″ to search for applications warranting greater scrutiny.

During this first phase, 10 Tea Party cases were identified. By April of 2010, 18 Tea Party organizations were targeted, including three that had already been approved for tax-exempt status.

How Mark Levin Led Fight Against IRS Abuse of Liberty-centered Groups

When accusations first emerged in 2010 that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) had targeted conservative and Tea Party groups for additional scrutiny, it was unclear how widespread the problem was, or how to respond.

Some groups sued the IRS. Some contacted Congress, which sent inquiries to the IRS over a period of several months, beginning in October 2012. The House Ways and Means Committee, which is opening hearings on the subject on Wednesday, sent three separate letters to the IRS–but the IRS claimed no knowledge of the issue.

It took the efforts of Mark Levin’s Landmark Legal Foundation to find a strategy that would yield answers. Levin, who is also one of the most popular conservative talk radio hosts in the nation, decided to approach the Inspector General of the U.S. Treasury rather than the IRS itself, which is typically opaque in its responses.

U.S. city pays up for allowing Muslims to attack Christians

The city of Dearborn, Mich., has agreed to pay Christians who were arrested at its Arab International Festival in 2010, remove all criticism of them from a city website and post a public apology that will remain online for years, according to a legal team on the case.

The American Freedom Law Center said today that the settlement follows more than two years of court negotiations and resolves the Christians’ claims against the city.

It does not, however, remove the Dearborn Arab Chamber as a defendant in the case, which will continue.

The Christians were arrested in 2010 by city authorities for preaching peacefully to Muslims at the city festival.

Christian missionaries Nabell Qureshi, David Wood and Paul Rezkalla were jailed by the city June 18, 2010, and charged with “breach of the peace.”

Robert Muise, AFLC co-founder, represented the team in a five-day criminal trial in which they were acquitted by a jury.

The Christians then filed a civil rights lawsuit against the city, naming Dearborn, Mayor John B. O’Reilly, Police Chief Ronald Haddad, 17 officers and two executives from the American Arab Chamber of Commerce. The Arab Chamber itself later was added.

The case alleged an egregious violation of the Christians’ rights.

The AFLC said the city now has agreed to a settlement, including a public apology “that will be posted …….

Delaware becomes 11th state with HOMOSEX “marriage” (Commies Running Out of Blue States)

A divided state Senate voted Tuesday to make Delaware the 11th state in the nation to allow same-sex marriage, after hearing hours of passionate testimony from supporters and opponents.

Less than an hour after the Senate’s 12-9 vote, Democratic Gov. Jack Markell signed the measure into law.

“I do not intend to make any of you wait one moment longer,” a smiling Markell told about 200 jubilant supporters who erupted in cheers and applause following the Senate vote.

“I am elated,” said Scott Forrest, 50, of Newark, who entered into a same-sex civil union last year with his partner of almost 21 years, Kevin.

Delaware’s same-sex marriage bill was introduced in the Democrat-controlled legislature barely a year after the state began recognizing same-sex civil unions. The bill won passage two weeks ago in the state House on a 23-18 vote.

Nigel Farage hails UKIP’s ‘remarkable’ local election wins (Nationalist, Anti-Queer Agenda UKIP)

The beaming politician sank a pint of English ale at a pub in Westminster as his party emerged as the biggest winner.

They also surged to second place behind Labour in the South Shields parliamentary by-election, pushing the Lib Dems into SEVENTH.

Mr Farage hailed an astonishing night of progress and claimed his eurosceptic party are in with a chance of securing a seat at Westminster.

With most votes counted, UKIP had 144 councillors — a massive 136 more than when the same seats were last contested in 2009.

UKIP became the second largest group in Lincolnshire, winning 16 seats and depriving the Tories of overall control.

And the party picked up ten in Hampshire, nine in Essex, three in Gloucestershire, three in Somerset and one in Dorset.

They also picked up one seat in Wiltshire, four in Devon, and six in Buckinghamshire — overtaking the Lib Dems to become the second largest group in the Conservative stronghold.

The party gained another two councillors in the Isle of Wight, seven in East Sussex, and 14 in Norfolk. The party’s surged caused the Tories to lose all three councils.

In Norfolk UKIP went from just one councillor to 15, leapfrogging Labour to become the second largest group.
