It’s past time for the media to begin asking President Obama tough questions about the IRS conservative targeting scandal. After all he was involved, publicly, from the beginning.
Last Friday, the American Center for Law and Justice (where I serve as Chief Counsel) filed its Second Amended Complaint against the United States, the IRS, and a legion of IRS officials. This Complaint, in which we represent 41 organizations in 22 states, presents perhaps the most complete story yet of the IRS conservative targeting scandal.
Sounds like ‘Barry Soetoro” Obama has dusted off the old playbook of “Tricky Dick” Nixon. Wonder why Barry didn’t name his re-election committee CREEP?
When will America wake up to the fact that our current administration is NOT interested in citizen rights. Only in bringing fourth their agenda of a New Socialist Society using every thing in their power to bring down those who are exposing that fact. . . . EDITOR

Recharged tea party demands justice in IRS targeting scandal
Conservatives are fuming as more damning information surfaces regarding the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of tea party groups for excessive review of their tax-exempt status during the 2012 elections.
An apology Friday by the IRS conceding the “inappropriate” practice of singling out groups with keywords like “Tea Party,” “Patriot” and “9/12 Project” in their names to flag for heightened, typically burdensome, scrutiny is “not sufficient reparation for violating the constitutional rights of United States citizens,” said Jenny Beth Martin, national coordinator for the Tea Party Patriots. . .

Congressional members have given the IRS until Wednesday to provide copies of all agency communications that include the words “tea party,” “patriot,” and “conservative.”
At the same time, Fox News reported on Monday that the IRS may have been casting an even wider net, and agents could have unfairly targeted groups that touted better government economic policy and debt pay-down. Also among the targeted: Groups that tried to educate about the Constitution or government policy critics, Fox News said. . . . Read Complete Report

Gingrich: IRS Targeting Scandal Raises Issues About Obamacare
The Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups raises serious questions about how it plans to handle the taxes and penalties associated with Obamacare, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says, and he thinks the president owes apologies for the agency’s conduct.
“[President Barack Obama] has a huge problem, because Obamacare relies very heavily on the IRS,” Gingrich said Monday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“Why would you trust the bureaucracy with your health if you can’t trust the bureaucracy with your politics?” he added a moment later. . . . Read Complete Report
A few conspiracy-minded observers have wondered if the Obama Administration dropped the IRS political-audit scandal to distract attention from the Benghazi scandal. It’s starting to look as if the reverse conspiracy theory would be more plausible, because the IRS thing is going nuclear. Four days in, and we still haven’t heard a single word from the President who bends our ears so relentlessly when he’s got an agenda to push, even as more high-profile commentators – most recently George Will, on ABC’s This Week – are reminding us that Nixon’s fall was partly due to just this sort of politicized abuse of Internal Revenue Service power.
We’ve learned that the target list for these political IRS audits was far broader than we initially thought. Fox News got its hands on a timeline prepared by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration that shows this scurrilous operation growing even faster than most government programs do: . . .

Open Letter from a Marine Tea Partier to All Occupiers
First of all, I’m surprised you’re reading this. Thanks to the corrupt media, many of you might be clueless to the fact we share quite a bit of commonground.
Let me clarify: By “Tea Party,” I am in no way referring to the hijacked movement we know and love today. By “Tea Party,” I don’t mean Iran warmongers, bailout lovers, the “extreme right,” and people who think what happens in your bedroom affects them in any way. No, what I mean is the Tea Party as it started in 2007 as opposition to Bush policies.
The media loves to paint a picture of OWS vs. TP, “right” vs. “left,” etc. It’s an old tactic called divide and conquer. If we fight amongst ourselves, no one looks at the true criminals at work in society. . . . continue
Byron Thomas Says He Doesn’t See Racism, Just Southern Pride
Byron Thomas is 19, black, a freshman at the University of South Carolina Beaufort and a proud Southerner. He hung a Confederate flag in his dorm room window until the university asked him to take it down because several people had complained about it. (The university later stepped back from the request, saying all students have the right to free speech.)”I know it’s kinda weird because I’m black,” Thomas said in an iReport he submitted. “When I look at this flag, I just don’t see racism. I see pride, respect. Southern pride, that’s what I see.”
Byron is not the only black man to realize he has been force fed a badly bent set of “facts” about the Confederacy and Southern Heritage. Mr H. K. Edgerton, former president of the Asheville, NC NAACP, has been a vocal and tireless advocate of teaching the true history of the Confederacy, the circumstances, and conspiracies that led to the War between the States for nearly two decades. Edgerton marched from Asheville to Austin, Texas wearing a Confederate uniform and carrying a Confederate battle flag. These days, he mostly wears the attire and carries his flag at events that either commemorate fallen Confederate soldiers or to speaking engagements intended to educate about the real reasons that led to the war; States rights, imbalanced economic laws (Corwin Amendment), disproportionate allocations of Federal expenditures, and other political shenanigans.
Edgerton cites historical documents, newspaper accounts, diaries, and other period literature to show that hundreds, perhaps thousands of blacks, both free and indentured, fought for the Confederacy voluntarily. Many didn’t or couldn’t enter battle, but instead worked to provide southern soldiers with food and equipment, also voluntarily. Edgerton’s main message is that southerners, even then, acted as one big family faced with annihilation by a foreign invader.
So what exactly is the purpose of the National (Federal) focus on portraying the Stars and Bars as a racist symbol? Are they afraid the South will indeed rise again? Or is it merely an easy and convenient means to distract us from the current political shenanigans?
Before we take offense with each others’ beliefs or view points, before we denigrate someone’s sense of heritage, we need to make sure we have the security of a valid and viable culture. We are being distracted from the fact that each and every American has been put into debt by our Federal government to the tune of more than $5 Million each. That’s right, you are on the hook for more than $5 Million in loans somebody else (Congress) took out in you name.
Before we belittle another person or group for their rhetoric, whether it’s the conservatives, liberals, Occupiers of Wall Street, the Tea Party, the NAACP, or the Fraternal Order of Police, we need to get control of our own governmental waste and its inherent greed. We cannot continue to allow the Controllers to shape our belief systems. We have a right and a duty to be informed in every aspect, including the true history of the War of Northern Aggression.
After watching different groups of Americans protest the actions of our controlled government since the 1960s I believe that the protests that started in Wall Street with just a handful of people and has now grown to thousands spreading to other cities could be “the real deal.” (I’ll be actively attending the protest scheduled for this Saturday, Oct. 8/2011 in Hemming Park in downtown Jacksonville, Florida) One of the reasons for believing that finally a peoples movement might grow legs is the fact it seems to have quickly grabbed the establishment Controllers attention
The first “talking heads” who have come out against this movement is the (Weak) Tea Party, which I have come to believe to be a stooge organization happily protected by the Controllers. Notice how the (Weak Tea Party) has become the Controlled media’s favorite “peoples movement” to report on, and those they run to for answers when trying to judge the mood of the people.
If the (Weak) Tea Party is REALLY out to change the direction of our Country by the will of the people they would have instantly supported a real movement of the people, this unplanned and spontaneous gatherings of people from all walks of life that started small in Wall Street and seems to be growing at an amazing rate.. Instead they immediately appear on the number one conservative worldwide news outlet, Fox News, with the (Weak) Tea Party’s opinion of these pissed off Americans. How can the teabaggers have such a great access to the media and conservative Politicians who we know are opposed to ANY change in direction towards a One World Order?
Those of us who realize the extent of the Controllers total censoring of the “news” spoon-fed us by the propaganda machine laughingly called the “free” press know one thing from experience. If the Controllers thought the (Weak) Tea Party was any threat to the one world plans of the Controllers they would only get this kind of news access and coverage when their compound was raided by the ATF and FBI SWAT teams (with the CIA in the background giving orders).
So when major news outlets immediately hit the airwaves in prime time asking the (Weak) Tea Party’s leader’s their opinions concerning the Wall Street Movement we wonder, why ask them? The answer is obvious. The (Weak) Tea Party is nothing but another part of the Controllers plans to control the people. The (Weak) Tea Party is actually composed of those conservatives from the Republican Party and moderate “Independents” who think the answer to solving our country’s problems is still possible by leaving our destiny in the hands of the beltway establishment controllers. Actually those who believe the (Weak) Tea Party “is the Answer” have been hitting the Cool-Aid, or I should say … the weak tea, a bit too much. It’s all part of the dumbing down process that has been going on in our country. since its foundation.
The (Weak) Tea Party official stand on this new Wall Street Movement came from one of the (Weak) Tea Party’s top jocks.. He said the (Weak) Tea Party had “nothing to do with these” know-nothings and that the Wall Street Movement was organized by “Leftist radicals and communist groups” who had no money and no organization, and no message.”
Where have we heard that before? Sounds like someone brushed off the old play book of Richard Daley during a previous heating-up political circus, The Detroit Republican Convention of 1988. Guess no-one told the teabaggers we stopped blaming that kind of stuff on Communist several wars ago.
Tea Party supporters read my lips “this protest was not planned. It never figured to grow. Nor is it a leftist ploy …It is a series of spontaneous happenings by the masses. it is the unconnected-by-politics angry American Citizens who are rising up. And of course they have no money. Nether personally, nor do they have access to the deep pockets that SOME organizations supported by the controllers have; and their message is they are mad as hell at the system that the you teabaggers support and they are not going to take it no-more!”
Bet you thought I’d found me an entrance to the underground? Naw. Just been working on the new HOLLOW EARTH INSIDER site. Adding lots of goodies takes lots of time. But I will be taking you along with me on just such a quest in coming issues of this THEI publication.. I’ve decided to take a 21st century look at what’s being planned, going on, and how much its costing us as taxpayers as the government secretly moves more of their “Invisible Government” underground, literately.. I’ve heard rumors over the last few years of massive goings on underground. It’s time we took a look see, We’ll also be looking into starting to explore the possibility of moving at least some of mankind underground. … We’ll pick up where I left off 14 years ago …. (See Volume 1 # 6)…. Well, let me get back to it. . . . stuff to do, stuff that involves a lot of head-scratching and staring at the keyboard. Sure am glad that I’m retired. Good word “retired.” You can get ahead of the crowd that will be running to my site once I get it back up by going to www.thehollowearthinsider.com and joining the Insiders list in the top right hand corner. That’s where any info about the site, etc, is posted first. And if you would please leave your comments on our guestbook page, Thanks!
