IRS Targeting Scandal Widens To Include Denying Pro-Israel Groups

Dungeons are too good for these people

The Foggy Bottom Theater of Scandal IRS production has more twists and turns than Lombard Street:

In 2009 the Pennsylvania group Z Street applied for tax-exempt status for its mission of educating people about Israel-related issues. In 2010 an IRS agent told Z Street that its application was delayed because the tax agency’s Washington, D.C. office was giving special scrutiny to groups whose missions might conflict with Administration policies. The IRS’s “Be On the Lookout” list that November also included red flags for groups referring to “disputed territories.”  SOURCE – The Wall Street Journal Online

Oops.  Who forgot to delete that email?

Z Street sued in August 2010 for viewpoint discrimination and its case is headed for discovery in federal court. Now emails uncovered by the House Ways and Means Committee show that the IRS and State Department were conferring in 2009…

According to Genesis 9:1, after the Flood, our Father YHWH ha Elohiym commanded Noah and his family to “Be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth.” In other words, have children.

However, in A.D. 1973, the Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion.  Americans decided they know better than God and decided to have fewer children. Official records indicate there’ve been at least 55 million American abortions since Roe. I’ve heard one student of the abortion issue claim that the real number of abortions is double the “official” number.

Many Christians suppose that when the Supreme Court declared America’s “right” to abortion, the Supremes invoked an “American Holocaust” that God, Himself, would someday, but inevitably, punish. Therefore, many believe that “some day” in the future–we don’t know when–God will hold America accountable for those many murders.

However, the following video implies that by declaring our “right”…

The Ultimate Prize: Control of Petroleum— or Control of Petro-Currency?

“. . . they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace . . . .” Ezekiel 13:10)

 

The Muslim faith is divided into two primary sects: Sunni and Shiite. They’ve been at each other’s throat since the death of the prophet Mohammed in the 7th century. Their disagreement is religious and goes to which sect acquired legitimate authority over the Muslim faith after Mohammed died. The two sects can go through generations of peaceful coexistence. But every so often, they wage holy war against each other.

ZeroHedge.com recently commented on rising Middle East tensions:

 

“What’s changed [in the Middle East] is the perception that the USA has any role to play any longer even in the diplomatic theatrics. The Middle East is disintegrating faster than any polity in historical memory. It appears that…

Go Left Go Right

What makes two people who grow up in a similar environment become so politically different? This is very perplexing to me. Where I live here in central California, a candidate who I went to grade school with, remained in touch during our college years, and road tripped together a few times, is challenging the GOP incumbent, Jeff Denham. I am going to refrain from posting his name here, but he has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood and the CSEA. Just do a quick google search, and he will pop up.

Everyone who has spent more than one second reading my blog is fully aware that I am a very conservative Christian guy. I grew up in a conservative, two parent home. My pop owned his business, and mom stayed at home. The guy that I went to school with, partied with, and did typical guy stuff with all those years ago, had a very similar upbringing. So why did I see the light of the right he went to the darkness of the left?

I don’t have the answer. I don’t know why folks think that abortion is not murder. I don’t know why folks want to reward criminals with free citizenship. I don’t know why folks believe medical insurance and medical care is a right. I don’t see why folks don’t understand that the more government is involved in the private business sector, the more expensive it becomes and the quality declines.

As the election draws near, I will post some of the acts I witnessed first hand that he will have to answer for. I have been contacted by a chapter member of the GOP that wants to hear what I witnessed. I am a bit torn, Jeff Denham is not a conservative; he is pro amnesty and mandated healthcare guy. But he is not a progressive.

The Right To Remain Silent

Protect Our Borders!

Protect Our Borders!

The Right To Remain Silent

Don’t speak to me

about your rights,

if you sneak through

the fence at night.

Or if you cross the border

in a van,

driven by

the greedy man.

Or if you sail

on board a raft,

or pay your way

with bribe or graft.

You cannot steal

what’s given free,

to those

who do it properly.

So, the only right

you have I see,

is the right to leave

so please feel free.

Then if and when

you should come back,

with the legal papers

in your pack,

then I will listen

to your speech,

about your rights

all, and each.

Tolerance? or Coercion?

I have been … “uninspired” to write because I have nothing new to say. We face the same battles each day, against an un-American … maybe even anti-American US administration that is successfully tearing apart the moral, social, and commercial strata of our nation with little to no resistance.

Yet, there have been … and continue to be “rumbles.” If I had to give a report, I’d say the dissatisfaction among the American people is spreading and churning up pockets of thought. In general, “Get out of my face” thought, although I did see a “Ready for Hillary – 2016″ sticker the other day, and I wept in prayer.

I live 10 minutes from the Franklin Regional High School where the stabbings occurred last week. What could cause a decent young man to flip out like this? “Water cooler talk” around here this week has focused on “bullying.” Yet, it…
