IRS Goes Biblical on Franklin Graham
I am extremely aware of the IRS regulations regarding religious tax exempt organizations. Plain and simple, the Billy Graham Organization ads complied with the mandates. They did NOT tell anybody to vote for a SPECIFIC candidate. The ads asked readers to vote based on Biblical guidelines, and for candidates who would REPRESENT them from a Biblical perspective. Oh my goodness, I wonder why the OBAMA Administration took that as a personal attack? - Dale
We already know that up until last year’s presidential election the IRS was busy judging books by their cover. If your organization had a name that included “patriot” or “tea party” or “9/12” chances are your application for tax-exempt status was not going to be granted in a timely fashion. Unless one is accustomed to employing geologic time in their everyday life. But now we learn the IRS was also busy judging the theology of some Christian groups.

Policy change threatens to 'gut' iconic organization
I hope we can stop being stupid. There are gay folks in all levels of our society. They have been in the Boy (and Girl) Scouts from the beginning. They have had to stay in the 'closet' simply to be accepted. While I do not want adult scout 'leaders,' to be there if they are driven by sexual preditorial motives, I hope that BSA will always embrace kids who are just trying to find a place to belong and accepted. - Dale
The BSA said the resolution was approved by 61 percent of the approximately 1,400 Boy Scout leaders from across the nation who voted at the organization’s annual conference in Grapevine, Texas.
In a statement issued after the vote, the BSA said the policy change is effective Jan. 1, 2014, “allowing the transition time needed to communicate and implement this policy to its approximately 116,000 Scouting units.” The statement said the resolution “reinforces that Scouting is a youth program, and any sexual conduct, whether heterosexual or homosexual, by youth of Scouting age is contrary to the virtues of Scouting.” Responding to the vote, the Family Research Council “expressed deep disappointment at the Boy Scouts of America.”
Homeland Security bulletin warns 3D-printed guns may be 'impossible' to stop
- Jana Winter - FOX NEWS
A new Department of Homeland Security intelligence bulletin warns it could be "impossible" to stop 3D-printed guns from being made, not to mention getting past security checkpoints.
A May 21 bulletin distributed to numerous state and federal law enforcement agencies and obtained by FoxNews.com states that the guns, which can be made by downloading blueprints into cutting edge computers that mold three-dimensional items from melted plastic, "poses public safety risks" and are likely beyond the current reach of regulators. The guns threaten to render 3D gun control efforts useless if their manufacture becomes more widespread.
'There will be hell to pay'
- Dale Dawson
Democrats turn on IRS: Vow to appoint special prosecutor if agency keeps stonewalling.
As I commented in an earlier story, if this woman has nothing to hide, then why is she hiding behind the Fifth Amendment. If she, as an employee of us (the taxpayers), does not want to answer questions related to her job performance, then she should be fired and all benefits cancelled, period. - Dale
“There will be hell to pay if that’s the route we choose to go down,” he warned. But that’s just what Lerner did, refusing to testify before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform by invoking her constitutional right against self-incrimination.
Lerner said she would not answer questions because the Justice Department has launched a criminal investigation into the IRS scandal.
Lerner has blamed abusive IRS practices on low-level employees in the Cincinnati office. But IRS sources told National Review, “From the outset, Internal Revenue Service lawyers based in Washington, D.C., provided important guidance on the handling of tea-party groups’ applications for tax-exempt status.”
OBAMA'S HOUSE OF POLITICAL PROSTITUTION
- Greg Richter - NEWSMAX
Our President chose to deem the Ford Hood Massicre by this Army Major a "Workplace Violence"issue rather than having the moral backbone to call it what it was: an "Act of Terrorism." Because of this lame Oval Office decision, this killer is being paid (by US) to sit on his pathetic terrorist butt while the surviving victims of, and surviving families of those who lost a loved one from the actions of this murderer receive NOTHING. Is this what American values are all about? I think not. If that is what we have become as a nation, I no longer want to be here! - Dale

Scarborough: Feds' Fox News Snooping 'Out of Control'
The Justice Department's secret seizure of phone records from a top Fox News reporter is "disturbing" and suggests the agency is "out of control," Joe Scarborough says.
"It would be one thing if you're monitoring MSNBC's number … but you talk about the Fox News bureau, that's what makes it so damning for this White House," Scarborough said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
"This is a Justice Department that seems out of control."

Obama Losing Chris Matthews? Host Rails Against 'Profiling' By IRS: It's Like Targeting Innocent Arabs
If Barack Obama is losing Chris Matthews, he might be in serious trouble. The MSNBC host on Wednesday declared that the Tea Party is the victim of "profiling" by the Internal Revenue Service that is on the level of targeting innocent Muslims as terrorists. On the subject of former IRS official Lois Lerner pleading the Fifth, Matthews wondered, "Why, if you have nothing to hide and you're a truth teller and you're of sound mind, and she seems to be, why doesn't she sit in that witness stand and answer truthfully?"
The bewildered host continued, "Why wouldn't she want to clear her reputation today?" Matthews even went so far as to compare the attack on conservatives to racial profiling: "I go to the airport and I'm running TSA. Instead of deciding based upon people's movements around the world that might be suspicious, going to countries that cause us trouble, I just look for everybody that looks Arab and I put them in one line. The American people would say that's outrageous
Military suffers wave of 'gay' sex assaults
Thanks to our oh-so-compassionate Commander-In-Chief of all branches of the military (though he doesn't know the rules & regulations of those branches) -- we now have a male-on-male problem in our military. - Dale
The extended analysis of the report first appeared in Monday’s edition of the the Washington Times.
The Defense Department survey of sexual assault in the military during fiscal 2012 estimated 26,000 assaults took place in the armed forces. Nearly 3,000 of them were formally reported. Just more than 6 percent of women reported being victims of assault and 1.2 percent of men said the same. Given the much larger number of men in the military, those numbers suggest 14,000 of the assaults in the Pentagon study happened to men.

Taxpayers Get Fleeced -- AGAIN -- STILL -- (perhaps) FOREVER

Farm Bill Starves Taxpayers
Last week, while everyone was enraptured by the trio of Obama administration scandals, Congress was hard at work fleecing American taxpayers.
This time, they’re doing it with a multi-billion dollar bill to subsidize farmers. The bill is a maze of agribusiness subsidies, welfare payments and “green” crony capitalism spending. Programs in the farm bill include: income support for farmers, price controls on select crops, government guaranteed loans and special subsidized crop insurance for farmers.
The problem is not agriculture per se. It’s that once the money flows, it becomes impossible to turn off the gushing payment spigot to demanding recipients.
