Obama’s IRS Goons Now Attacking Tea Party

Reported on Breitbart’s Big Government, the IRS, at the behest of Democrat Senators, is now investigating such operations as ACORN, MORE, Project Vote, Media Matters, George Soros, and Warren Buffett to expose the voter fraud and tax evasion of those organizations.

Wait. No. They’re investigating local Tea Party organizations inquiring on donors’ names, donation amounts, office-seeking Tea Party leaders, and more:

In January and February of this year, the Internal Revenue Service began sending out letters to various local Tea Parties across the country. Mailed from the same Cincinnati, Ohio IRS office, these letters have reached Tea Parties in Virginia, Hawaii, Ohio, and Texas (we are hearing of more daily). There are several common threads to these letters: all are requesting more information from these independent Tea Parties in regard to their nonprofit 501(c)(4) applications (for this type of nonprofit, donations are not deductible). While some of the requests are reasonable, much of them are strikingly onerous and, dare I say, Orwellian in nature.

What are local Tea Partiers to think with requests like “Please identify your volunteers” or “are there board members or officers who have run or will run for office (including relatives)”? What possible reason would the IRS have for Tea Parties to “name your donors” when said donations are non-deductible? These are just a few of the questions asked by the IRS in these letters, and one cannot help but suspect an intrinsic threat encompassing all these demands.

The other question is the timing of these IRS letters requesting reams of copies and hundreds of hours of work and potentially thousands of dollars in accounting/legal fees (all due in two weeks). Some of these Tea Party groups have not received anything concerning their nonprofit status since 2010 prior to these letters.

These documents are further undermined by a letter sent to the IRS Commissioner Shulman. Signed by six Senators, it requests that the commissioner investigate 501(c)(4) groups to determine whether they are engaging in substantial campaign activity, including opposition to any candidate. Who signed this letter? Senators Schumer, Franken, Udall, Shaheen, Whitehouse, Merkley and Bennet — all Democrats.

Could it be that these Senators want the IRS to investigate the nonprofit status of Media Matters and its coordinated political activity with the White House? Or perhaps they are concerned with nonprofit ACORN groups’ record of voter fraud, and other previous campaign abuses including alleged close ties with President Obama’s Project Vote? No, when these Senators sent this letter to the IRS commissioner, the message would be very clear. The 501(c)(4) groups they want investigated are not those with Democratic liberal ties.

Occupy Pepper Spray

The Evil Capitalists Big City Democrat Administrations are cracking down on the #OccupyWherever gatherings across the nation requiring them to move out of their Occupied Parks for reasons of Safety and Health… …and the liberals neighbors are even sick of them.

It’s sad. On many subjects, I wholeheartedly agree with their concerns and issues… …especially crony capitalism.  However, most of them don’t even know that crony capitalism is the real problem – not the free market.

Here are some of my favorite stories about the movement:

Son Of Stimulus Tea Party

On October 4th, 2011, President Obama visited St. Louis to raise money and tout his Green Taxpayer Waste Jobs Bill Stimulus II.  He attended a fundraiser at the home of Stimulus I recipient Tom Carnahan – brother of Congressmen Russ Carnahan – who received $107,000,000 from Obama’s first stimulus.

Early in the evening, unhampered by Obama supporters, the evening was a typical respectable gathering of the St. Louis Tea Party:

Bill Hennessy got the Rally going:

.

Jim Hoft picked it up from there:

.

Craig Arnzen from the Mizzou College Republicans joined in on the fun:

.

And Jen Ennenbach, media liaison, batted cleanup:

.

The early part of the night was great… …it went downhill from there!

It’s Not A Debt Increase…

IT’S A TAX INCREASE!!

The current description of the negotiations regarding increasing the debt limit is a fallacy.  We are not negotiating to increase the debt limit, we are negotiating to increase taxes.  We may or may not increase the tax rates on some or all individuals or corporations, but raising the debt limit is still a tax increase.

Republicans, Libertarians, Conservatives and Tea Partiers better start calling this what it is:  A TAX INCREASE!

Why?  Let’s look at it with smaller numbers…

Let’s say the government takes $10.00 in taxes and spent all that money, but they also borrowed and spent another $1.00 for a total of $11.00.  To pay off the government, citizens will pay taxes.  Is the $11.00 repayment going to require more taxes?  Or less taxes?

Is the extra $1.00 that the taxpayers will now have to redeem to the government a tax increase? Or a tax decrease?

Let’s try with larger numbers…

Government was authorized to collect taxes at a certain rate – say $100 per year.  However, they’ve been spending $140 to $160 per year since the advent of the Obama administration.  Our federal government has spent more than the authorized $100 every year since 1968… …to the point that they owe that $100 plus $5,800

If we give them another $100 on that debt limit, what do you think they’re going to do?  They’re going to spend it!  It will be another $100 added to the $5,800 that we already owe.

Let’s use the real numbers…

The Federal Government is currently authorized, based on tax rates, to collect about $2.1 Trillion per year.  In 2009 and 2010, the Obama Administration spent $3.4 Trillion and $3.5 Trillion per year.  So, in 2011, taxpayers must now pay the $2.1 Trillion authorized PLUS the additional $2.7 Trillion from the 2009 and 2010 PLUS whatever deficit spending occurs in 2011.

h/t thegatewaypundit.com

More Taxes; More Deficit; More Taxes; More Deficit; More Taxes.

This is not a debt ceiling increase; we better start calling it what it is:  A TAX INCREASE!

New Tone

This week’s e-mail from Daniel Mintz at MoveOn.org continued to show the blatant hypocrisy of the Left.  After the Gabrielle Giffords shooting and admonishing all Tea Partiers and Conservatives (especially Sarah Palin’s election targets) for their heated rhetoric, the Left engages in persistent violence and vitriol… …even in a simple e-mail.

Conservatives would be decried for using such charged words as ‘savage’ and ‘hostage-takers’ and ‘destroy’.  On the Left, not so much:

CNN hosts even apologize when a guest uses the term ‘crosshairs‘.

There’s always a little humor at the end of the MoveOn.org mailings.  They like to claim…

We’re entirely funded by our 5 million members—no corporate contributions, no big checks from CEOs. And our tiny staff ensures that small contributions go a long way.

Just millions of dollars directly from George Soros, but he’s not going through a corporation or writing the checks as a CEO, so I guess, technically, they are not lying.

Thanks Daniel, I look forward to your next fantasy (and hate filled) letter.

Can’t Even Read Guitar World!

I was paging through Guitar World Magazine yesterday looking for an example of a 24-Fret Gibson SG with a cherry finish, Rhodes Whammy, and Grover Tuners… …and what do I find?  I find that I can’t even read Guitar World without witnessing another attack on the Tea Party.

I had never heard of a Rocktron Hush Pedal, so I read its description to see that even the Guitar World writer jumps in with a leftist attack on the Tea Party (obviously with editor approval):

Apparently, Guitar World thinks only a bunch of left-wing unemployed Nancy Pelosi ObamCare loving artists subscribe to their magazine.

Too bad, because there are plenty of Tea Party Patriots that play guitar, and I’m sure many subscribe to their magazine.  Like me, many probably only have time to review the 5 songs and a couple of articles.  And, like me, they will have now heard of www.songsterr.com where they can go and find FANTASTIC tabs for most of the songs they’d like to play… …without enduring an attack on their beliefs.

So, we can thank Guitar World for yet another veiled racist attack on the Tea Partiers with your “white noise” comment.  Yes, we know; we get it.  Your meme continues. You think we don’t have enough black people at our rallies, so we are racist.  Ha ha ha.  Funny. We get it. And, you tell us the poor misguided black people that do show up are, well, brainwashed, uninformed, and Uncle Tom’s.

And, of course, most importantly, if Barack Obama were white, those at the Tea Party would be all for his Tax and Spend Liberal Democrat Policies, because, you know, we are only there because we are RACIST!

Joe Holleman & Post-Dispatch: Welcome, Comrade!

Sunday’s Post-Disgrace column by Joe Holleman was jaw-dropping.  I had to go back, rub my eyes, and re-read the part where he says “I would label myself — ‘slightly to the right of center'”

After condescending on the simple desire to see Barack Obama’s real birth certificate with all the haughtiness of an east coast liberal, Holleman decided to wade into the controversy between tea party members (note the lower-case) and Don Giljum and Judy Ancel’s promotion, advocacy, and recruitment into the Communist Party.

Holleman says, “I think if we’re going to waste a few thousand dollars, we should do it by employing a few communists at our universities.

Let’s face it, where else are they going to go?

Communism has been kicked out of every Eastern European country. It would be dead in Cuba if the economy wasn’t bolstered by the thriving black market for 1950s car parts.”

So if college campuses don’t provide a safe haven for communists, then they’ll start circulating in the real world. Personally, I don’t need all that earnest goofiness.”

Later, Mr. Holleman points out that he was “irked” that some members of the tea party, who’s blog entries are syndicated on the St. Louis Tea Party Coalition web site, labeled advocates of communism as “degenerates” and “wastes of human flesh”.

‘Some say’ that “degenerates” and “wastes of human flesh” were too kind of words to describe the advocates of communism.

A quick aside to remind Mr Holleman of the facts:

Stéphane Courtois argues that Communism and National Socialism are slightly different totalitarian systems, and that communism is responsible for the murder of around 100 million people in the 20th century. He also argues that the National Socialists [Hitler] adopted their repressive methods from Soviet methods.

Stéphane Courtois (born November 25, 1947) is a French historian, an internationally known expert on communist studies, particularly the history of communism and communist genocides, and author of several books. The Black Book of Communism, a book edited by Courtois, has been translated into numerous languages, sold millions of copies and is considered a standard work on communist genocides.

So, Mr. Holleman wants keep the hiring window open at the universities for the ideology that murdered 100,000,000 people in the 20th Century (and from which National Socialists took their cues)?  Better they be there at the colleges teaching and recruiting our impressionable children than “circulating in the real world”?

Okay then, by Joe’s logic, what other ideologies and political theories should we welcome on campus in the name of academic freedom?  Seems that anyone who murdered 100 million or less in a century works for Joe.  At what point does the level of murder during the implementation of a political ideology become too much for Mr. Holleman (and not just “earnest goofiness”)?

How about supporters of fascism?  Hitler only killed 6 Million Jews – way less than communism dude.  Sign ’em up; right Joe?

How about the KKK? Should the grand wizard of the local radical racists be hired as an adjunct professor at UMSL or UMKC?  What great testimony to academic freedom, right?!?!  They killed way less than 1,000,000 people and probably are even bourgeoisie.

Al Qaeda has killed barely 10,000? Sign up the radical Imams?

But, we certainly don’t the ROTC or, Satan forbid, the Christian Conservatives!

Say it isn’t so Joe… …that you’d try to minimize the devastation and brutality that has been prosecuted in the name of communism and suggest that we allow its advocates a platform to indoctrinate our youth.

I think not!


h/t photos8.com

Sadly, my comparison of communism, fascism, the KKK, and radical Islam will be dismissed as hysterical hyperbole, but ignoring the deaths of hundreds of millions of human beings in the name of an ideology and minimizing the hiring of their supporters at America’s universities?!?!  Well comrade, that’s just “steadfast knuckleheadedness”!

Who Led The Republicans To Power?

Emily Miller writes today in her article “It Begins: House GOP Battle Over Leadership” that “Minority Leader John Boehner (R–Ohio) led the Republicans back into power and will be unchallenged in his bid for Speaker of the House.”

I generally like what I hear from Emily and HumanEvents.com, but I have to disagree with her on this one.  2009 was an awakening of a Conservative/Libertarian movement labeled the Tea Party.  Tea Partiers are educated and informed.  They know the Republicans seriously failed the country and greatly expanded the National Debt and are culpable in the downfall of the Economy.  Most Tea Partiers are every bit as disappointed and angry with the Republicans as they are with the Democrats.

Tea Partiers had two choices:

  • Start a 3rd party
  • Give the RNC another chance

Tea Partiers chose option #2.  Had they chose to go out on there own, there would be no more Republican Party — Tea Partiers may not have won many elections; Democrats may have won many many more seats, but the RNC would have been destroyed.

So, the statement that “Minority Leader John Boehner (R–Ohio) led the Republicans back into power” doesn’t really describe the events that transpired.  The truth is “The Tea Party opted to let the Republican Party continue to exist”.

And, the Republicans better remember that they don’t have “Power”, they have a chance to “Lead”.  If they decide, like James Carville, that they have power, they’ll get whacked like a mole at a Chuck-E-Cheese.  This is your last chance.

Heard of the Whigs?
