Watchdog Group Files FOIA Lawsuit
for Records on DOJ Tax Attorneys
Assigned to White House
Washington Free Beacon, by CJ Ciaramella    Original Article

The watchdog group Cause of Action is suing the Justice Department for records on what is says are possible unethical disclosures of confidential taxpayer information to the White House, the organization announced Thursday. The group discovered in April that attorneys from the Justice Department’s tax division, some of whom were also involved in litigation over the IRS targeting scandal, were being detailed to the White House to conduct background checks on potential executive nominees. “The detailing of Tax Division attorneys to the White House is of serious concern because these lawyers, while still at DOJ, obtain unique access to the confidential taxpayer

This isn’t really news. It’s just a reminder that the air strikes on ISIS are being run in the same disastrous fashion as those in Afghanistan. And it didn’t begin with Obama. Lest we forget, on the day before 9/11, Bill Clinton was boasting that he had let Osama bin Laden go to avoid collateral damage. Obama Inc. talks about how the Iraqis don’t want to fight. It neglects to mention that it isn’t letting the military fight. "U.S. military pilots carrying out the air war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria are voicing growing discontent over what

An unusual House hearing next week will feature reporters testifying before a congressional committee hearing instead of covering it. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee´s probe of barriers to receiving federal documents under the Freedom of Information Act features three journalists and New York Times assistant general counsel David McCraw among the witnesses on June 2. One journalist is Sharyl Attkisson, a former CBS investigative reporter and author of Stonewalled, a 2014 book celebrated by conservatives that targets Obama administration "efforts to monitor journalists, intimidate and harass opposition groups, and spy on private citizens."

Judge Denies Stay, DC ‘Forced’ to Issue
Concealed Permits Now
Breitbart Big Government, by AWR Hawkins    Original Article
Posted By: nota bene- 5/28/2015 7:37:12 PM     Post Reply
On May 28, Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. denied the District of Columbia’s request for an administrative state in the ruling against the “good reason” provision in DC’s concealed carry permitting process. The “good reason” requirement forced residents applying for a concealed carry permit to demonstrate a justification for wanting to carry a gun. Breitbart News previously reported that Judge Scullin ruled against the requirement on May 18, saying it “impinges on Plaintiffs’ Second Amendment right to bear arms.” The administrative stay would have extended the effective date for Scullin’s May 18 ruling, giving the city more time to evaluate

Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Admiral Mike Mullen told Bowe Bergdahl’s closest squadmates to sign non-disclosure statements on Bergdahl’s behavior before he deserted his platoon. The two squadmates were Bergdahl’s closest friends before he walked off base on June 30, 2009. The Obama administration did not want Bergdahl’s squadmates to talk. So they silenced them. The soldiers also said Mullen knew Bergdahl was a deserter soon after he left base. Barack Obama traded five top Taliban terrorists from Gitmo in exchange for Bergdahl.

Fascinating footage has emerged of Barack Obama giving an intensely personal speech 20 years ago. The video shows a 34-year-old Obama speaking at Cambridge Public Library in Massachusetts in September 1995, shortly after publishing his book Dreams From My Father. The future US President spoke of prejudice within his own family and race relations across America while he also read extracts from his recently released memoir and held a question and answer session. As well as discussing his family background, he describes how his wife Michelle was called a white woman when the pair visited his father´s side of the family in

The real reason the EPA wants
to regulate puddles and ditches
American Thinker, by Newsmachete    Original Article

The EPA has promulgated rules to regulate waterways as small as potholes. The EPA is supposed to have authority over "navigable" waterways, ones deep enough for a boat to drive on. The theory behind the Clean Water Act of 1972 was that if a company on private property discharged pollution into a body of water that touched on other private properties, that was a harm that was being transmitted to other property owners, and thus it was justified to regulate what the property owner was putting into the water. This makes perfect sense, even from the perspective of private property

The U.S. watched Islamic State fighters, vehicles and heavy equipment gather on the outskirts of Ramadi before the group retook the city in mid-May. But the U.S. did not order airstrikes against the convoys before the battle started. It left the fighting to Iraqi troops, who ultimately abandoned their positions. U.S. intelligence and military officials told me recently, on the condition of anonymity, that the U.S. had significant intelligence about the pending Islamic State offensive in Ramadi. For the U.S. military, it was an open secret even at the time. The Islamic State had been contesting territory in and around

J. Dennis Hastert, the longest serving Republican speaker in the U.S. House, was indicted Thursday by a federal grand jury on charges that he violated banking laws in a bid to pay $3.5 million because of “past misconduct” against an unnamed individual from their hometown west of Chicago. Hastert, 73, who has been a high-paid lobbyist in Washington since his 2007 retirement, schemed to mask more than $950,000 in withdrawals from various accounts that violated federal banking laws that require disclosure of large cash transactions, according to a seven-page indictment delivered by a grand jury in Chicago.

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan sought — and received — advice from Jeb Bush about how to deal with Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s concerns about Common Core, emails obtained by BuzzFeed News show. Bush advised Duncan that Scott, “fearful of the rebellion” brewing around the program, “[w]ants to stop using the term common core but keep the standards,” but couldn’t name “specifics [sic] things that the federal government is doing or perceived to be doing” that he found objectionable. The exchange, which took place in the morning of Sept. 23, 2013, begins with an email (“Subject: Gov Scott”) to Bush

In an op-ed for The Advocate, Vice President Joe Biden is praising Ireland for voting to recognize gay marriage, and encouraged the United States to do the same. “In 22 years, Ireland has gone from a nation where simply being LGBT was against the law to a nation where the people resoundingly stand for equal rights,” he said glowingly. Biden also pointed out that the United States now recognized gay marriage in 37 states, up from just six states six years ago. “It’s about love. It’s about equality. It’s about dignity. It’s about our most cherished values,” he wrote. “That’s

For 30 years, the federal government has helped millions of low-income Americans pay their phone bills, saying that telephone service is critical to summoning medical help, seeking work and, ultimately, climbing out of poverty. Now, the nation’s top communications regulator will propose offering those same people subsidized access to broadband Internet. On Thursday, that regulator, Tom Wheeler, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, will circulate a plan to his fellow commissioners suggesting sweeping changes to a $1.7 billion subsidy program charged with ensuring that all Americans have affordable access to advanced telecommunications services, according to senior agency officials.

Last week Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, made news by cashing out his 401(k) plan account. Rubio explained that he needed the money for several pressing financial needs, including replacing some home appliances, paying his children´s college costs and to raise funds for his White House run. He filed a financial disclosure showing he withdrew about $68,000 from an account at a former employer. Although providing Americans with a lesson on how to approach taking money from a 401(k) plan probably wasn´t his motivation, there´s definitely something to be learned here. Let´s start with some tax consequences.

  



Seeking a true picture of unemployment
Orange County Register, by Editorial    Original Article

The national unemployment rate ticked down slightly to 5.4 percent in April — a rate not seen since May 2008 — the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics recently reported. Although this is welcome news, government statistics mask economic troubles that continue to plague millions of Americans years after the end of the last recession. For starters, the widely-reported “U-3” unemployment rate only includes those who are actively seeking employment. And more and more job-seekers are getting discouraged and giving up the job search altogether. This is why the unemployment rate has declined even as the civilian labor force participation rate

A federal judge struggled Thursday with the administration’s claim the House GOP is pushing an “abstract” lawsuit against Obamacare that should be tossed, signaling she’ll take a hard look at Speaker John A. Boehner’s controversial bid to highlight the separation of powers between Congress and the presidency — and the judiciary’s right to referee their disputes. Justice Department attorneys told U.S. District Judge Rosemary M.
