So, Attorney General Eric Holder approved a search warrant targeting Fox News’s James Rosen for the crime of journalism with malice aforethought. Then the Justice Department shopped around for a judge who would keep the surveillance of professional and private e-mails secret. Then the department fought the public disclosure of the warrant since it wanted the flexibility to continue the investigation “for many years.” Then, according to Daniel Klaidman of the Daily Beast, Holder read the details of this operation in The Post over breakfast and the reality began to “fully sink in.” “Holder knew that Justice would be besieged by the twin leak probes,” Klaidman wrote, “but, according to aides, he was also beginning to feel a creeping sense of personal remorse

No, Holder’s signature is not ideology; it is incompetence. He has spent five years learning from mistakes. It has been an expensive education.
The review of Justice Department abuses relating to the press is being conducted by . . . Holder. A special counsel in this case would be appointed by . . . Holder. The FBI probe of the IRS scandal was ordered by . . . Holder. In all these cases, the restoration of public trust depends on an attorney general worthy of public trust.


A Justice Department official tells Playbook: “Attorney General Eric Holder will hold meetings with several Washington bureau chiefs of national news organizations in the next two days as part of the review of existing Justice Department guidelines governing investigations that involve reporters. This review, which was A Justice Department official tells Playbook: “Attorney General Eric Holder will hold meetings with several Washington bureau chiefs of national news organizations in the next two days as part of the review of existing Justice Department guidelines governing investigations that involve reporters. This review, which was announced by President Obama last Thursday, is consistent with the Attorney General’s long standing belief that protecting and defending the First Amendment is essential to our democracy. [Now that's a good one!]

Attorney General Eric Holder's plans to sit down with media representatives to discuss guidelines for handling investigations into leaks to the news media have run into trouble.
The Associated Press issued a statement Wednesday objecting to plans for the meetings to be off the record. "If it is not on the record, AP will not attend and instead will offer our views on how the regulations should be updated in an open letter," said Erin Madigan White, the AP's media relations manager.
The New York Times is taking the same position. "It isn't appropriate for us to attend an off-the-record meeting with the attorney general," executive editor Jill Abramson said in a statement.

Columnist Charles Krauthammer on the “O’Reilly Factor” Tuesday night said the “biggest scandal of all” regarding the Benghazi attacks on Sept. 11, 2012, has yet to emerge.
“I think there is a bigger story here, here’s the one that will in time come out,” Krauthammer said.  ”The biggest scandal of all, the biggest question is: What was the president doing in those eight hours?”

When the American mission in Benghazi, Libya was attacked on September 11th, 2012, only one person had the positional authority, legal mandate, and communications apparatus to give the order to defend our personnel on the ground: the President of the United States.

The President did not give that order, and four Americans died in Benghazi that day. All the rest of the nonsense to which we have been treated–from prepared talking points, congressional hearings, and finally to the outright lies–matter not when compared to the ignominious moments in which the President of the United States refused to do his job.

Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) appeared on Fox News Sunday to say he has no regrets about pushing the IRS to perform one of those very special conservatives-only audits upon Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS group.  He didn’t single them out because they’re political enemies, you see.  He just chose them for a bureaucratic beatdown because he thought they’d make a good example to all the other nonprofit organizations, liberal and conservative alike:

IRS’s Shulman had more public White House visits than any cabinet member

Students at the University of Colorado – Boulder (UCB) signed an enormous thank you card to the Internal Revenue Service for its apparent harassment of conservative groups during the lead-up to President Obama’s reelection.
In the viral video, posted on YouTube Tuesday, conservative pundit Caleb Bonham asked students to sign the large card that read “Thank you IRS! Tea Party Deserves it!”
“I’m asking people if they want to sign my board thanking the IRS for targeting conservative tea party and religious organizations,” Bonham explained in the video.
Several students enthusiastically added signatures and personal messages.
“Yes, totally,” responded one student. “I read about that. I thought it was pretty funny that the IRS was doing the right thing but the wrong thing at the same time.”
“I love discrimination,” chimed in another student.

There is a long history of complaints about czars by whichever party does not occupy the White House at the time, but the advisers have become a particular target of the right wing during the Obama administration, and the 11th-hour budget deal eliminated his health care, climate, urban affairs and auto-industry czars.
But on Friday night, Obama declared that he intends to ignore that part of the budget legislation, issuing a relatively rare "signing statement" after he inked the budget deal in which he argued that the legislative effort to eliminate those positions was an unconstitutional infringement on the executive branch.

A New Kind of Problem: The Common Core Math Standards

A set of guidelines adopted by 45 states this year may turn children into "little mathematicians" who don't know how to do actual math. 
They implemented Common Core this year in our school system in Tennessee. I have a third grader who loved math and got A's in math until this year, where he struggles to get a C. He struggles with "explaining" how he got his answer after using "mental math." In fact, I had no idea how to explain it! It's math 2+2=4. I can't explain it, it just is.
The second email came from a teacher in another state:
I am teaching the traditional algorithm this year to my third graders, but was told next year with Common Core I will not be allowed to. They should use mental math, and other strategies, to add. Crazy! I am so outraged that I have decided my child is NOT going to public schools until Common Core falls flat.
Let's look first at the 97 pages of what are called "Content Standards." Many of these standards require that students to be able to explain why a particular procedure works. It's not enough for a student to be able to divide one fraction by another. He or she must also "use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (2/3) ÷ (3/4) = 8/9, because 3/4 of 8/9 is 2/3."
It's an odd pedagogical agenda, based on a belief that conceptual understanding must come before practical skills can be mastered. As this thinking goes, students must be able to explain the "why" of a procedure. Otherwise, solving a math problem becomes a "mere calculation" and the student is viewed as not having true understanding.

My book is a simple but hard-hitting, 26 page booklet.
The following subjects are covered along with many photos: our Representative Republic, the three branches of government, the Bill of Rights, The Emancipation Proclamation and Republican efforts to end slavery and pass the Civil Rights Act, WWII and the Holocaust, American inventions, Obamacare and the Supreme Court decision, Common Core, UN Agenda 21, man made global warming and green energy, and basic Rules for Life. In short, it is what is good about America.  It is hard hitting, and not for those in elementary school.
 Well, the book's title has been changed to I'm Proud to be an American, available for preview and purchase at

Here is part of just one page in the book:

1) Many scientists realize that Planet Earth has had many Ice Ages and Global Warming, every 10,000 years, during its 4.5 billion years of existence.  Since we have not been keeping track of weather for billions of years,  we cannot really say that what is happening now is anything new.  The scientists "fixed" their data by starting their study just when the Earth was finished with the last cold spell and was starting to warm up again.  The way a computer program is set up helps to get the results desired.  Man was not alive when the first global warming occurred, so he did not cause the global warming in the past, and may contribute very little to it now.   "You can't fool Mother Nature", meaning that warm and icy cycles are normal.  That's Mother Earth for you!  So don't be scared by what you might learn at school about it being all our fault.
2) These environmental laws might destroy our economy.
3) Windmills don't work when the wind stops, they kill many birds, they make people living nearby sick, they heat the ground and they create more greenhouse gases than they save.
4) Those fancy new lightbulbs that we are encouraged and forced to buy are actually dangerous.  You must stay 2-3 feet away from the bulb because being closer may damage your skin!  They contain mercury, so if a bulb breaks we must get out of the room in a hurry and have an expert come to clean it up, because mercury is dangerous.  Just think how these burned out bulbs will harm our landfills. 
5) Electric cars can only go 40 miles, and they pollute the Earth more while they are being produced than a gasoline-run car will during its lifetime.  The energy used to recharge the car adds more pollutants to our air than just driving a normal car.
6) An Ice Age may have actually begun.  Shhh!  Those who make money and tax you because of of Global Warming don't want you to know!
7) Ethanol is made of corn and soy beans.  Making us use Ethanol in our cars reduces the amount of corn we have to feed humans. Others in this World accuse us of starving their citizens because they now do not have enough food.  Destroying grasslands to plant more corn and soybeans destroys key breeding grounds for ducks and other wildlife and also puts more carbon into the air.  Massive amounts of water are used in the making of ethanol.
8) Government has mandated low-flow shower heads, and low water use by our toilets.  This causes us to take longer showers and to flush twice.
9) America has the largest reserves of gas and oil in the world.  Our President won't allow us to go get it.  So we buy our oil from our enemies, making them richer.
10) Surprise!  There are far more polar bears in Alaska now.  They just moved to a different location.  And the moose in Alaska love to hang out near the Alaska Pipeline, because it is a little warmer there.
11) Scientists have a reason to promote Manmade Global Warming, for they get millions of dollars in research funds to study it.  Nay-sayers get none.
12) In 2002, a room of the Smithsonian displayed one entire wall charting the cooling of our globe over the last 60 million years.  Science magazine in 1975 predicted  "a full-blown, 10,000 year ice age".
13) Stoking panic about warming helps get some politicians reelected.
14) Greenland, which might be warming a bit now, was once green!  Our planet MAY have a temperature increase of  .1%, if that.
15) China pollutes the planet so much that what little we can do makes almost no difference.
16) The scientific community manipulated data and destroyed evidence in order to "prove" themselves right, and this was dubbed the Climategate scandal.  Learn about it.
17) 30,000 scientists are considering suing Al Gore for fraud
18) An England high court  found 9 key scientific errors in Al Gore's movie An Inconvenient Truth, and won't allow it to be shown in their schools without that fact being presented.
19) The Global Warming Policy Foundation recently wrote: ‘We could be in for a cooling period that lasts 200-250 years. The period of low solar activity could start in 2030-2040.’

Other than all this, you can believe everything you are taught....
Ask what caused the Earth to heat up and to cool down through the millenia when man was not here to make it happen.  Ask how animals have evolved in order to survive change.  Do question what you are taught in school, always!  Do your own research!  

Attorney General Eric Holder signed off on a controversial search warrant that identified Fox News reporter James Rosen as a “possible co-conspirator” in violations of the Espionage Act and authorized seizure of his private emails, a law enforcement official told NBC News on Thursday.
I am troubled by the possibility that leak investigations may chill the investigative journalism that holds government accountable," Obama said. "Journalists should not be at legal risk for doing their jobs."  [Now that's a good one, Barack!  A LEADER would have told his minions to follow the law, and would have actually overseen the work ethics of the DOJ.]

And then the news: “I have raised these issues with the attorney general, who shares my concern. So he has agreed to review existing Department of Justice guidelines governing investigations that involve reporters, and will convene a group of media organizations to hear their concerns as part of that review. And I have directed the attorney general to report back to me by July 12th.”  [So now the man who did the dirty deed and lied about that fact to Congress is going to investigate himself.  That ought to work well.  And its par for the course.]

“Look, I know a lot of you think I’m really busy and you don’t want to bother me,” the President reportedly told his staff in an Oval Office meeting. “But cc me anyway. It’s good for me to keep up on what’s going on around here.”
“It’s not good when I turn on the news and they’re talking about something at the White House and I’m like, whoa, when did that happen?” Mr. Obama added. “I think cc’ing me would go a long way toward fixing that.”
“Maybe put a Post-It note on your computer saying, ‘CC POTUS,’ so you don’t forget,” he said as the meeting broke up.

“Why was the culture such under your watch that an employee felt comfortable targeting conservative groups?” Gowdy [continued asking Shulman]: “Did you investigate that?”
“From my reading of the report, um, I can’t tell if it was political motivation or if it was tone-deaf, somebody trying to expedite a way –” Shulman [of the IRS] started.
“You still don’t know that this was political?”
“Excuse me?”
“You still don’t know that this was political?”
“I defer to the inspector general.”
“Well, I’ll tell you this, Mister Shulman, your predecessor said that he wasn’t sure if it was partisan and that requires the listener to be as stupid as the speaker.”

Lois Lerner Sued Christian Coalition In Largest FEC Action in History – Then Was Promoted to IRS Where She Targeted Conservatives (Video)

Under the direction of Lois Lerner, the Federal Election Commission sued the Christian Coalition in the 1990s. She harassed the Christian Coalition for three election cycles. She lost her case. Lerner even asked one conservative during the case if Pat Robertson prayed over him. (Sound familiar?)



The IRS scandal provides Republicans and conservatives with the opportunity to repeal and replace Obamacare now. The House Republican majority should refuse to fund the expansion of the IRS necessary to manage Obamacare. Without that funding, and hiring thousands of additional agents, the IRS cannot even begin to manage Obamacare.
President Obama may throw a fit. He may refuse to sign funding bills to keep the federal government open. No matter. Let him close his government down if he wants. Nobody wants the IRS playing political games with their health care and health records, like it did with the constitutional rights to freedom of speech and Equal Protection of Tea Party and conservative organizations. Contribute to the Republican Party? Attend a Tea Party protest? Good luck getting your Obamacare health insurance tax credit application approved. Good luck finding a doctor the government will pay to do that operation your kid needs.

Tennessee Republican U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander said today that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius may be breaking federal law by raising private [funds] to help implement the federal health care law and compared her actions to the Iran-Contra scandal.

Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius was criticized last week for soliciting private contributions to Enroll America, a non-governmental organization run by former Obama campaign operatives.
The real monkey business is what the secretary is doing with taxpayers' money — pouring it into community organizations.
The pretext is that community organizations will do a better job than government employees in enrolling the uninsured in ObamaCare. But the likelihood is that these community organizations will steer the uninsured into the Democratic Party.
And beware. The Senate immigration bill tries to repeat this unsavory use of community organizations. It pays community organizations to educate immigrants about American civics and the path to citizenship.
