Nick Gates, a 37-year-old Houston, Texas man, was accused by authorities of threatening to kidnap, murder and burn Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his father, MySanAntonio reported Tuesday. The man also allegedly threatened to “blow up” the sun if he wasn’t paid $3 million.
In a campaign fundraising email posted Tuesday at Weasel Zippers, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said she’s “sick and tired” of “useless” House Republicans blocking Barack Obama’s progressive agenda, and claims the only way to fix the “problem” is to elect more liberal Democrats.
“I can’t do that alone,” she said in the DCCC email. “I need your people-power to back me up.”
Fool them once…. If President Obama thought last week was the worst of his presidency, he is in for a rude awakening, judging from a CNN/ORC International survey released this morning. In its own reporting on the poll, CNN notes:
A growing number of Americans believe that senior White House officials ordered the Internal Revenue Service to target conservative political groups.
Getting tired of lesbians, bisexuals, gays, transgendereds, pro-abortion choicers, Sandra Fluke anti-conceptionists, and now Espionage Act-violating leakers of national security secrets attempting to usurp the noble civil rights legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.? This content-of-character dreamer is.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), one of our tea partier conservative Republican heroes, disappointed us this week when he conflated the domestic spying revelations of Edward Snowden, former NSA contractor currently now living in Hong Kong under the “protection” of the Communist Chinese government, with a southern Baptist preacher who willingly sacrificed his personal liberty to oppose unjust laws denying blacks equal rights under the United States Constitution. Here’s Paul:
To be hired by the Obama Justice Department, you have to satisfy various ideological litmus tests. But apparently you don’t need to understand or appreciate the First Amendment. Knowledge of the First Amendment seems to be regarded as a bug rather than a feature for Justice Department lawyers.
One example is the administration’s baseless prosecutions of peaceful, law-abiding anti-abortion protesters, which has resulted in judges imposing sanctions against the Justice Department for frivolous prosecutions.
If President Obama is only continuing domestic spying programs initiated under Presidents Clinton (Echelon) and Bush (Patriot Act), then why were Major Hasan (Fort Hood) and the Tsarnaev brothers (Boston Marathon) left to their known Islamist pro-death terror devices, while the substance of the prayers of conservative tea party pro-life patriot Republicans were searched before they could help prevent his re-election or avoid tax audits?
It is more likely that Vice President Joe Biden will resign and that President Obama would nominate Eric Holder to replace him than that the latter will resign as Attorney General and return to private practice to resume pro bono work for captured and/or arrested terrorists.
The White House announced today that Designated Benghazi Liar Susan Rice will replace Tom Donilon as President Barack Obama’s National Security Adviser. Sarah Hall Ingram is heading up implementation of the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare
On Tuesday, Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., told leaders of conservative groups appearing before the House Ways and Means Committee their groups should have been targeted by the IRS because of their involvement in politics.
McDermott started his comments by saying what the IRS did was wrong. He went on, however, to claim the groups were asking taxpayers to subsidize their work.
On Sunday, Kerry Picket reported at Breitbart.com that Susan Anderson, wife of former IRS Commissioner Douglas Schulman, worked on Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign, citing tweets she sent out last year. Jim Hoft of the Gateway Pundit also observed that she supported Occupy DC and bashed the Tea Party.
“Additionally,” Pickett added, “Anderson reportedly works for the Washington D.C. based liberal organization Public Campaign,” citing an article at the Daily Caller.
On Sunday’s edition of CNN’s “State of The Union,” Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., revealed new testimony from IRS employees that indicate they were directed to target Tea Party groups from higher-ups in their Washington, D.C. headquarters, Fox News reported.
“As late as last week,” Issa said, “the [Obama] administration was still trying to say the [IRS targeting scandal] was from a few rogue agents in Cincinnati, when in fact the indication is that they were directly being ordered from Washington.”
