The New York Post reports that Gene Freidman, CEO of Taxi Club Management, was accosted last Thursday by a spitting-mad Bloomie.
“We are not at war with Islam,” the president has said. Make that “the presidents (plural) have said.” George W. Bush was as clear and unequivocating as Barack Obama in distinguishing between terrorism and the religion of Islam.
But at least Bush understood that his first obligation was to do whatever it took to keep Americans safe from further 911s.
An Obama Administration that first sought to limit freedom of religion to worship also solicited the content of the prayers of political opponents whose free political speech rights they denied in the Election of 2012.
When Democratic Party-like “satraps” sought to eliminate King Darius’s favorite Jew from influencing the Mede then ruling Persia, they conspired to appeal to the King’s vanity with an ordinance that:
Those old enough to remember Watergate will recall that once major scandals within a presidential administration get rolling, they snowball. The press finds itself reporting new developments daily. That is, assuming the press is reporting anything at all.
It is no surprise that the government agency responsible for taxing the rich and funding the liberal management of our lives for the collective would be a bastion of the most partisan members of the Democratic Party, willing to wield the hammer that is government power for the various factions of the gangster-like mob it has become.
Current tax law, or what passes for “law,” requires tyranny in its enforcement.

“Obama’s presidency was declared dead by the press on Tuesday.” So writes Elspeth Reeve of the Atlantic Wire, providing as evidence a quote from a Politico piece by Jim Vandehei and Mike Allen: “The town is turning on President Obama — and this is very bad news for this White House.”
Gian Carlo Menotti’s first opera, The Consul, seems out-of-date now that communist Russia and its satellites have crumbled. This story of a poor wife trying to get a visa to join her dissident husband in a free land just doesn’t resonate much nowadays.
The gray Soviet-style waiting room where its heroine, Magda, goes to fill out “endless paperwork which is never quite correct” just doesn’t resonate with anyone’s experience of government today, right?
Unfair and unequal treatment of tea partiers by the taxman is insidious, but it is nothing new. As noted in a report at the Examiner from Nov. 28, 2011, the city of Richmond, Va., spitefully responded to an invoice from the local Tea Party by ordering a tax audit of the protest group.
Some context is required. On Oct. 28, the leadership of the Richmond Tea Party hand-delivered an invoice in the amount of $8,500 to the office of Mayor Dwight Jones. Continue reading
What a difference damning testimony from high-level members of the diplomatic corps makes! Just three days have passed since three previously disallowed whistleblowers appeared before the House Oversight Committee to testify that the administration lied and diplomats died, and already the once-fawning MSM are jumping ship in droves, much like the lemmings they are.
