Abolish the IRS (and the Income Tax With It)

Reason ^ | May 19, 2013 | Sheldon Richman

No dissenter can ever rest assured he is safe from the arbitrary power of the IRS.

The Internal Revenue Service has been caught engaging in political profiling while processing applications for tax-exempt status. In this case it was against organizations with “tea-party” or “patriot ” in their names and other right-wing groups. Next time it could be libertarian or left-wing antiwar and pro-civil-liberties groups. No dissenter can ever rest assured he is safe from the arbitrary power of the IRS.

Nothing will have been learned from this scandal if all that happens is the firing of some IRS administrators and the issuance of new guidelines on 501(c)(4) applications. That is not nearly enough.

The Obama Objective: To Control The News… “The Obama political team at the White House has always prided itself on its media savvy. After all, they got a candidate with an otherwise unsalable socialist past elected on a campaign that sold his personality, not his platform.”

Members of tea party claim the movement springs from and promotes basic American conservative principles such as limited government and fiscal responsibility.

But new research by University of Washington political scientist Christopher Parker argues that the tea party ideology owes more to the paranoid politics associated with the John Birch Society — and even the infamous Ku Klux Klan — than to traditional American conservatism.

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 20, 2013, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Would the woman most closely associated with the TSA airport stripsearches make a good presidential candidate? The abortion lobbying groupEMILY’s List and The Washington Post think so.

 

This month, EMILY’s List launched an initiative entitled “Madam President” dedicated to electing the first female president.

 

The group’s president, Stephanie Schriock, said she was not placing all her bets on a Hilary Clinton candidacy.

“Is this still America?….. “See, you have never experienced a free America. You have never experienced that “shining city on a hill” as Ronald Reagan so loved to describe America. Reagan knew THAT America. He had experienced that America. Many of America’s so-called senior citizens living today also remember that America. I do.”

Ah yes, “the older I get, the better I was” syndrome!

Again and again the hue and cry goes out to “Restore America”!

But was America really something of our ideals rather than the reality that was really out there?

For instance, did our founding fathers seek “liberty and freedom” for all mem and not just the elite? Remember that the first Con-Con was to just update our first constitution, The Articles of Confederation, not to do away with the first constitution altogether. (Is “We The people” really just the signers of the preamble to our present constitution, rather than…”Joe SixPack,” for instance?)

But isn’t that just what they did, meeting behind locked doors in secret. George Washington, who was president of that first con-con wanted the new potus to have veto power over the states, albeit each state a sovereign “country” itself. And the new Constitution would not have been ratified at all had not the Bill of Rights been added to push it through. The same new “constution” we have today that has been steadily undermined through the years by our enemies within.

Something to chew on, folks….

Texas Republican Congressman Kevin Brady asked during the IRS hearings last week: “Is this still America?”

Good Question. It is a question we have asked with great frequency for a number of years now.

As much as I despise having to say it, we are witnessing an America in decline today. We can sugar-coat it, we can parse it, we can ignore it, all at our peril.

To fix it, we must face it. And it is a painful thing to look, objectively, at our country today.

For so many of you who have been born and have attained maturity in America since the 1950s, I can understand your wondering what I’m prattling on about.

See, you have never experienced a free America. You have never experienced that “shining city on a hill” as Ronald Reagan so loved to describe America. Reagan knew…

A London Based Human Rights Organization “Article 19” Seeks International Protection for Bloggers.
At the UNESCO World Press Freedom International Conference 2013, ARTICLE 19 launched The Right to Blog – a new policy paper that calls for lawmakers to better promote and protect the rights of bloggers domestically and internationally. The Right to Blog also gives practical advice to bloggers about their rights and explains how – and in what situations – they can invoke some of the privileges and defences that traditional journalists have found vital to the integrity of their work.

Prison Planet.com » New Jersey Contracted RFID Evacuee Tracking Tech Just Days Before Sandy Formed ~ (“Hurricane Sandy formed just four days later, October 22, making for notable timing as New England hasn’t been hard hit by a hurricane since 1938. Who could have seen the devastation to New York, New Jersey and other parts of the East Coast coming when that area hadn’t been hit by a major hurricane for some 70 years?”) ??????

Presciently, the State of New Jersey announced a 5-year contract for RFID tracking technology used to assist in evacuation by identifying and monitoring the location of evacuees and emergency assets during hurricanes or other disasters just four days before Hurricane Sandy began to form.

Exclusive: CIA Honored Benghazi Chief in Secret Ceremony

The Daily Beast ^ | May 21, 2013 | Eli LakePosted on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 7:30:07 AM by don-o

At a secret February ceremony at CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., the chief of the CIA’s base in Benghazi the night of the 9/11 anniversary attacks there was awarded one of the agency’s highest intelligence medals, according to U.S. military and intelligence officials.

The honor given behind closed doors to “Bob,” the officer who was in charge of the Benghazi intelligence annex and CIA base that was attacked in the early morning of September 12, 2012 and then abandoned for nearly three weeks, illustrates the murky lines of command that preceded the attack, and helped make it a politically volatile issue.
