Exposing Leftist Platforms should be Watched

No surprise for Conservatives: the most effective Social Platforms operate under a Leftist agenda and are virulent anti-Conservative bigots.

 

It is also no surprise Social Media platforms have developed algorithms that serve to promote a Leftist vision and squelch all things Conservatives.

 

It is unfortunate that Google is probably the best and most powerful search engine because searches are skewed to make it difficult for Conservatives to locate sought after info. For specificity these days I gravitate toward DuckDuckGo, but I’ve been a bit suspicious of DuckDuckGo results lately. To be honest though, they are suspicions. I may just be paranoid because I still find better results than Google. Those results just seem more difficult to attain.

At any rate Project Veritas has been taking on the Leftist Social Media platforms to expose their prejudice against Conservative thought. I recently ran across an email alert sent by Jenny Beth Martin of Tea Party Patriots Action with the subject title, “Watch this and share it before G00GL3 deletes it”. I suspect the usage of “3” rather than “E” was a hope to fool spam algorithms by Left-oriented free email platforms.

 

The link leads to the most recent Project Veritas exposé revealing the insights of a Google Whistleblower. Google owns Youtube ergo it would be unsurprising of a video removal. The Project Veritas post provides an alternative link for the video on their website. Below is that exposé.

Jenny Beth Martin on IRS scandal: ‘We need to know what happened’


Remember how Obama’s IRS targeted Conservative groups – ESPECIALLY Tea Party groups – to prevent Conservatives from campaigning against Obama?

 

Remember Lois Lerner was involved in IRS targeting then took the 5th in Congressional hearings to save her buttocks? She is now retired with a healthy pension. Thanks to Sixth Circuit Appeals Court, Lerner is going to be forced to testify.

 

Remember how the IRS Commissioner John Koskinen did next to zero to bring IRS culprits to justice? Apparently, President Trump has forgot to drain the IRS portion of the swamp because Koskinen is still the IRS Commissioner.

In a recent interview with Fox & Friends’ Steve Doocy, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin demands that testimony from today’s hearings into the IRS targeting scandal be made public so we, the American people, are able to “get to the bottom” of why some groups applying for tax-exempt status were singled-out for added scrutiny during the Obama administration.

 

“…[W]e need to know what happened. They need to testify and the public needs to hear that testimony to be able to get to the bottom of what happened to us so we can finally have justice,” Jenny Beth said of the former top IRS officials, who requested their testimony be sealed out of concern for their well-being.

 

Numerous Americans were targeted under Lois Lerner’s scheme at the IRS, and IRS Commissioner John Koskinen stonewalled congressional investigation into the matter. Click here to join Jenny Beth Martin in demanding justice for those Americans targeted by the IRS and for IRS Commissioner John Koskinen’s immediate dismissal.

The IRS scandal, and continued calls for our elected representatives to follow through on their promise to fully repeal Obamacare, keep us busy every day at Tea Party Patriots. As health-insurer Aetna announces it’s getting out of Obamacare, we’re reminded daily that a health-insurance infrastructure that places more power in the hands of government arbitrators than it does in the hands of the American people is fundamentally un-American. Click here to help Tea Party Patriots encourage our lawmakers to fully repeal Obamacare.

 

America’s future – as with the Obamacare repeal – can sometimes look bleak as lawmakers continue to go soft on their promises, but don’t lose heart. When our mainstream news media is more concerned with how many scoops of ice cream President Trump prefers eating compared to his guests (yes, this “story” actually garnered a headline), you know it’s time now, more than ever, to get America back on track and tackling the issues critical to our continued well-being and our children’s well-being – something former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich emphasizes in a recent column for Fox News.

 

“Republicans must decide if they are going to fight for what they believe in or retreat to the tenuous safety of the beltway bubble,” he says.

 

One promising development is the more than 120 seats on federal lower courts President Trump has the opportunity to try and fill – assuming Republicans and some Democrats can come together as they did during the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

 

As Jenny Beth says in a Washington Times opinion piece, “What’s better than another Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court? How about another Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court and another 10 Antonin Scalias on lower federal courts, ready to rule and move up when the time is right?” Click here to help Tea Party Patriots urge our senators to confirm to our courts judges who respect our Constitution!

Hold Koskinen and IRS Accountable for Crime


John R. Houk

© November 14, 2015

John Koskinen was appointed as Commissioner to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in 2013 by President Barack Hussein Obama. Koskinen has lied to Congress and obstructed Congressional investigations into the IRS. Why should we be surprised? After all the IRS targeting of Conservative organizations has been going on and covered up at least since 2010 undoubtedly under the direction of President Barack Hussein Obama. When the light began to expose the crooked tax collecting organization subpoenas were ignored, documents lost or destroyed and the electronic fingerprints found attempted erasure.

HAS ANYONE BEEN HELD ACCOUNTABLE?

To date no one has faced criminal charges for either partisan attacks or the cover-up. Does that sound like White House cooperation in terminating the rats in the woodwork? What does that tell you? All scandal roads lead straight to President Obama. This can be surmised because the White House is involved in the same kind of obstruction to investigations with the Left Stream Media covering the Obama Administration’s back-side.

Discover The Networks has an excellent timeline of what is public knowledge of nefarious activities in the IRS that begin with Commissioner Doug Shulman and continued on by his replacement Steven Miller and then Miller’s replacement Daniel Werfel who has been replaced with the current corrupt IRS Commissioner John Koskinen:

In May 2013, it was learned that from April 2010 to April 2012, the Internal Revenue Service had placed on hold the processing of applications for tax-exempt status that it had received from hundreds of organizations with such presumably conservative indicators as “Tea Party,” “Patriots,” or “9/12” in their names. During that period, the IRS approved only four applications from conservative groups while green-lighting applications from several dozen organizations whose names included the likely left-leaning terms “Progressive,” “Progress,” “Liberal,” or “Equality.”

In February 2014, it was further learned that of the
already-existing nonprofits that were flagged for IRS surveillance (including monitoring of the groups’ activities, websites, and any other publicly available information), 83% were conservative. And, of the groups that the IRS selected for audit, 100% were conservative.

This section of Discover The Networks provides a timeline of this illegal, blatantly partisan practice by the IRS.

February to March 2010: An email string from February – March 2010 includes a message from a California Exempt Organizations Determinations manager discussing a Tea Party application “currently being held in the Screening group.” The manager urges, “Please let ‘Washington’ know about this potentially embarrassing political case involving a ‘Tea Party’ organization. Recent media attention to this type of organization indicates to me that this is a ‘high profile’ case.” A co-worker responds: “I think sending it up here [DC] is a good idea given the potential for media interest.” (Source)

March 31 to April 1, 2010: Colleen Kelley, president of the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU)—the 150,000-member union that represents employees of the IRS and 30 other government agencies—visits President Obama at the White House. NTEU’s Political Action Committee endorsed Obama in both 2008 and 2012, and gave READ THE REST

What a surprise. A Union and President Obama have a strategy meeting. I doubt finger criminals was the topic of discussion. More than likely the discussions was how to grease the wheels of obstruction and cover-up.

A friend of mine forwarded a Tea Party Patriots email which rallies support to press the House to impeach Obama’s current IRS thug chief John Koskinen. A successful impeachment would bring to light a trail of criminality that I am confident will eventually lead to Obama and his White House minions. Below is the TPP email portions that deal with impeaching Koskinen (I’m leaving out the marketing pitch):

Impeach Koskinen

By Jenny Beth Martin

November 10, 2015, 07:30 am

The Hill

House Republicans have introduced a resolution to impeach Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen, about which, a simple thought – it’s about damn time.

Impeaching a senior official of the federal government is no small deal. Only seventeen times since the Constitution came into force in 1789 has the House of Representatives even tried to impeach a federal official; only eight times has the Senate seen fit to convict. And not since March of 1876 has an appointed executive branch official been impeached. It’s a difficult thing to do, and it was meant to be; it should only be used for the most egregious offenses.

But impeachment is the appropriate response to Koskinen’s conduct in office, if impeachment is meant to be used, as Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist 65, to remedy “those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust.”

The text of H. Res. 494, introduced by Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and cosponsored by 22 others, makes plain Koskinen’s “abuse or violation of the public trust.”

In four separate articles of impeachment, Koskinen is charged with:

Failing to comply with a subpoena for evidence, resulting in the destruction of that evidence – 422 backup tapes, which housed as many as 24,000 Lois Lerner emails;

Failing to testify truthfully and providing false and misleading information to the Congress – Koskinen testified that the IRS had turned over all emails relevant to the congressional investigation (including Lerner’s emails), and then, when that proved to be inaccurate, he testified that the emails were unrecoverable, which also turned out to be false;

Failing to notify Congress that key evidence had gone missing – the IRS knew the Lerner emails were missing as early as February 2014, and, in fact, destroyed the emails in early March 2014. But the IRS didn’t tell Congress until June of that year, well after White House and Treasury officials had been notified.

In each of these charges, the evidence is clear – it is Koskinen’s own words, offered in sworn testimony to Congress, compared to the record of his and the IRS’s actions.

The resolution has been moved to the House Judiciary Committee, which will, presumably, mark it up and send it to the floor at the discretion of the House GOP Leadership. This gives newly elected House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) the perfect opportunity to prove to conservatives and the American people alike that he is truly ready to do the peoples’ work.

This shouldn’t be a heavy lift for Ryan – remember the Ways and Means oversight hearing where he tore into Koskinen, saying repeatedly he simply did not believe him? I do.

And what do the 2016 Republican presidential contenders think about the latest IRS revelations? Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has asked the Justice Department to save documents related to the IRS investigation so that the next administration can have a shot at justice. But are the others willing to step in and defend the American people should one of them win the White House? Might I suggest that Neil Cavuto and Maria Bartiromo at Fox Business Network choose this as a subject of conversation during tonight’s debate over some of the more ridiculous topics we’ve seen from other forums this year?

Remember, it was the IRS that was used as a political weapon to target citizens who were deemed opponents of this Administration. My organization and many affiliated with it have been on the receiving end of this political weapon and I would not wish it upon any American–including my worst political adversaries.

Not surprisingly, it was announced last month that the Obama Justice Department would not press charges against the person at the center of this scandal – former IRS Director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. So, just when will the American people receive justice?

A start would be to impeach and convict the man who continued the cover-up and denied justice for the American people, and I truly give House Republicans credit for seeming to understand this. Will Congress step up and do something meaningful to defend the American people? Help make your voice heard by adding your voice to the national petition at www.ImpeachJohn.com.

It’s about damn time.

Hard Votes


Boehner the Cowardly Lion


Justin Smith displays his dislike for the GOP reelecting John Boehner as Speaker of the House. Justin very effectively makes his case

Hard Votes
 
By Justin O. Smith
Sent: 1/9/2015 12:35 AM
 
The American people have been deceived and betrayed once more by the newly elected Republicans, who portrayed themselves as conservatives. These newly elected joined the rank and file establishment Republicans, and on January 6th, they helped reelect a big spending, Republican-in-Name-Only Statist, John Boehner, as Speaker of the House to the 114th Congress, which illustrates that despite a Republican majority, the 114th Congress will not be truly conservative in its character.

Boehner won the Speaker position with 216 votes of 408 cast, less than a majority of the full House. With 164 Democrats voting along ideological lines for Nancy Pelosi, twenty-four courageous Republican Congressmen remembered their oath to the Constitution and set aside personal ambition and partial considerations for committee chairs, and they voted for the true interests of America and Her people, by voting for alternative Republican candidates for Speaker of the House.

Despite claims to the contrary, every Republican Congressman was aware of the fact that 64% of Republican voters wanted to “dump Boehner”, due to a campaign by Joseph Farah at ‘WND’, which generated over 500,000 letters urging House members to fire Boehner. Most of the new Congressmen received votes, during their campaigns, based on their assurances that they would seek Boehner’s removal as Speaker.

Many disturbing reasons led to the movement to oust Boehner. He has overseen the largest government spending spree of any Speaker in U.S. history, including Nancy Pelosi; he insisted on fully funding Obamacare at the end of the last Congressional session, when he also pushed House members to fund Obama’s immigration amnesty until February 27, 2015; and he gave a $1.1 trillion spending bill his blessing in December of 2014.

Obama’s amnesty for illegal aliens could have been fought by passing month to month continuing resolutions and demanding concessions at every juncture to keep government funded. But now, by passing the “Cromnibus” [Link] and funding the Dept. of Homeland Security through February, Boehner and the House allowed Obama to build the administrative structure needed to issue his deferred prosecution orders and work permits for the parents of the DREAM “children.”

 
Reported by several journalists including Melissa Quinn at the ‘Daily Signal’ (Jan 5), Rep. Jim Bridenstine placed this fight in its proper perspective, stating:
 

The CR/omnibus legislation ($1.1 trillion spending bill) sufficiently undermines the checks and balances enshrined in the Constitution that it warrants my pending vote against the Speaker. John Boehner went too far when he teamed with Obama to advance this legislation. He relinquished the power of the purse, and with it he lost my vote.”

Some Congressmen, such as Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) Vice-Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee, expressed their fear that they would lose their position if they opposed Boehner. They called it “a hard vote” to go against their principles, but they haven’t any principles; the hard votes were delivered by the twenty-four courageous American patriots, men of honor, integrity and principle, who stood and opposed Boehner, including Scott DesJarlais, Ted Yoho and Louie Gohmert.

And yes, the retaliations are already underway. Rep Daniel Webster (R-FLA), who opposed Boehner, and Rep Richard Nugent (R-FLA), who voted for Webster, were both removed from the Rules Committee hours after the vote. Boehner also used retaliation in 2012, when he threw Representatives Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), Justin Amash (R-MI) and David Schweikert off their committees.

Given the numbers, there was going to be a Republican Speaker no matter who the candidates were, since the vote continues until one candidate gains a simple majority. At the very least, the true conservative Republicans were hoping to force a second vote for the first time since 1923, when Frederick Gillett (R-MA) needed nine ballots to win the Speaker’s seat (Congressional Research Service).

Statements similar to Rep. Diane Black’s (R-TN), that opposing Boehner would “position Democrats to exert greater influence over the outcome”, are nothing more than a weak, blatant attempt to cover their own self-serving cowardice. And every Republican vote for Boehner was a vote for their own personal ambition and massive government and its associated expenditures.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) stated, “Critics may call my vote unwise … but I challenge them instead to defend the undemocratic manner in which the Speaker has moved legislation through the House of Representatives.”

In 2015, Obamacare, illegal immigration, energy, jobs, the tax code and education, along with appropriations and budget issues, will all present America a string of failures under John Boehner’s direction as Speaker of the House. The next two years will be full of faux conservatives full of feigned anger, and Republicans still will have accomplished nothing.

 
How can Boehner continue to lead the cooperation – err, ugh – “opposition” to Obama (as the crowd laughs uproariously), when he has lost the confidence of his own party?
 
It’s no wonder Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was gushing as she handed the Speaker’s gavel to Boehner. Her party sees John Boehner as being malleable in Obama’s hands.
 
How could any Republican vote for Boehner for Speaker of the House in good conscience, knowing that he is working to undermine conservative principles?
 
When Americans vote for candidates calling themselves “conservatives”, they expect to receive honorable leaders, who understand the basis for true conservatism, determined to uphold their oath to the Constitution. Time and again, John Boehner has violated his oath and blocked the efforts of new Congressmen to advance conservative policies that would have had better than expected results, if only one gathered the strength to do the right thing.
 
Twenty-four Republicans who opposed Speaker Boehner, as they fought for Constitutional government, are an inspiration for many Americans. Their votes also represent the largest in-party repudiation of a sitting Speaker since 1923.
 
Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, observed:
 

Republicans should study the names of those who were brave enough to stand up and cast their vote against the status quo of the Boehner establishment. One day, they will lead that party, and the party and the nation will be far better for it. Tea Party Patriots everywhere salute them.”


The 2014 election was about making the changes the American people demand, something Boehner has refused to do. Every single Republican was tasked by America to dump Boehner, but the majority of them were too busy running to protect their cushy assignments and their committee positions and running scared from a whiny Fool’s retaliation. Every single Republican who cast their vote for Boehner betrayed the U.S. Constitution and the American people in so doing.

Make Boehner Happy – True Conservative Leave the GOP


T-Party Believes In

John R. Houk

© December 24, 2013

 

About a week ago Speaker of the John Boehner (R) criticized Tea Party Conservatives for hampering the Democrat/GOP budget deal. Now I have mixed feelings on this budget deal. I feel with a neo-Marxist President the only kind of budget that will pass and be signed is a compromise budget. Hence a compromise was good.

 

However, Boehner’s personal attack strategy on Tea Party Conservatives is a demonstration of the Republican Establishment – mired with Left-Center and Crony Capitalist Conservatives – has decided to minimize true Conservatives possibly to the point of excising their existence from the GOP.

 

Boehner may consider himself a Conservative and this budget deal may be the best compromise for the U.S. government to move on; however he should of attacked what the GOP had to give up and begin ramping that up as a 2014 election issue. Instead Boehner attacked the Less-Government/Fair-Taxes element of the GOP know as Tea Party Conservatives.

 

It is my opinion that the Tea Party Movement will only have a significant influence on the Congressional Budget path if they withdraw from the Republican Party. This would mean the multitudinous separate and local Tea Parties would have to find some kind of unity through some kind of federation and/or centralization. Critics of this will tell you this is guaranteeing a Democratic Party majority in both Houses of Congress and another Dem President in the probable likes of another Alinsky devotee in Hillary Clinton.

 

I say so what!

 

When the Republican Party broke into the national scene in America in 1856, it neither won Congress or the Presidency. Republicans were considered too radical by the political establishment of its day because they represented the Abolition Movement (i.e. the abolition of slavery and full citizenship for former slaves). The irony of those days the Democratic Party won the Congress and the Presidency in 1856 and it was the Democrats that favored slavery and the status quo on a national basis. Today the Dem Party strategy has switched from status quo Capitalism (including the Southern slave culture) to Socialist utopianism. Part of that power base is to convince America’s poor and minorities that the Dems have their interests at heart by creating a system which the government takes care of people. In essence the Dems have managed to make the poor and minorities dependent on government hand-outs as part of a survival mode. The irony is the Dems have created a pseudo-slave class which continued votes keep their masters in power. When Boehner criticizes the Tea Party instead of admitting temporary compromises he is upholding the Dem Party slave-class system to perpetuation.

 

America needs another Lincoln to STAND UP to discharge the status quo and render the Establishment Republicans and status quo Dems irrelevant now as Lincoln did to the Dems and to what was left of the Whig Party to win political power in 1860.

 

It is time to stop calling Establishment Republicans RINOs (Republicans in Name Only). Let us call them Republicans and the Tea Party start another National Political Party that will eventually gain the hearts of American voters. A Tea Party paradigm might cause a bit of civil strife for a while as did the 1860 Dems in starting the Civil War, but good designs will always triumph over the evil designs of the Socialistic slave mentality.

 

If you are a Tea Party Conservative this Boehner speech should embolden you rather than to lay down to walked upon by the Republican Establishment and the Socialist/Marxist leaning Democratic Party:

 

VIDEO: Boehner Takes on the Tea Party

 

You should read this December 19 op-ed written by Jenny Beth Martin of the Tea Party Patriots located of all places in the New York Times. Martin is more specific than I in itemizing the bad parts of the budget compromise and the Tea Party advocacy for less government which Obamacare for all its good intentions is a socialist paradigm destined to further enslave American dependence on government overreach.

John Boehner’s Betrayal

 

By Jenny Beth Martin

December 19, 2013

New York Times

The Opinion Page Op/Ed

 

WOODSTOCK, Ga. — THERE’S a political axiom that says if nobody is upset with what you’re doing, you’re not doing your job. We’ve seen this proved time and again in the liberal attacks on conservatives like Sarah Palin and Dr. Benjamin Carson, who provide principled examples to women and minorities and are savaged by the left for doing that job so well.

 

But cheap-shot politics isn’t relegated to Democrats. Last week the House speaker, John A. Boehner of Ohio, attacked conservative groups who criticized the budget deal, hashed out by Representative Paul D. Ryan, Republican of Wisconsin, and Senator Patty Murray, Democrat of Washington, for failing to reduce spending and for raising taxes.

 

“They’re using our members and they’re using the American people for their own goals,” he said, calling the opposition “ridiculous.”

 

In one way, Mr. Boehner is correct. The goals of groups like ours are those that congressional Republicans once espoused: smaller government, less spending and lower taxes. Alas, those who demand such things today from their elected officials face unfounded attacks.

 

Make no mistake: The deal is a betrayal of the conservatives who fueled the Republicans’ 2010 midterm shellacking of Democrats.

 

It raises discretionary spending above $1 trillion for 2014 and 2015. It reneges on $63 billion of sequester cuts. Its $28 billion in deficit reduction over the next decade is a pittance compared with the $680 billion deficit piled up in 2013 alone. And it raises taxes, particularly on airplane passengers through new travel fees.

 

Perhaps most troubling is that the deal locks in spending for President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, ensuring that the worst parts of Obamacare will continue unfolding to the shock of increasing numbers of Americans.

 

But the budget plan is about more than taxes and spending. It was a slick means by which Senate Republicans could appear to oppose the deal while in fact allowing it to sail through the chamber.

 

Take Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, the minority leader, who opposed efforts to defund Obamacare earlier this year while claiming to do everything possible to stop it.

 

After attacking conservative groups for their efforts to prevent the funding of Obamacare, Mr. McConnell, who is facing a primary challenge in his 2014 re-election race, is now seeking to portray himself as a conservative darling, championing fiscal austerity by voicing opposition to the budget proposal. (My organization has not endorsed a candidate in that race.) Doing so gives him some nifty talking points that align with most conservative groups, but it is little more than parliamentary sleight of hand.

 

Consider how he handled the vote on the bill. To defeat a filibuster, its supporters needed 60 senators to win cloture and move to a final vote. Instead of rallying his troops against the vote, Mr. McConnell allowed a handful of Republicans in battleground states — who needed to be seen as supporting the bill — to vote for cloture, while he and the rest railed against it, casting themselves in the role of budget hawks.

 

With cloture accomplished, a dozen Republicans were then free to vote against final passage if they need wiggle room when they’re confronted on the campaign trail next fall by voters demanding action on government spending. Mr. McConnell and many Senate Republicans used the vote to manipulate the system, allowing them to cast themselves as deal makers or principled conservatives, depending on their audience.

 

This is not principled policy making; what we’re seeing is simple gamesmanship that raises legitimate questions about which values Republicans truly hold and which are merely interchangeable with those of Democrats.

 

The job of Tea Party groups and other conservatives is pretty simple: to inform Americans about the need for restraint in spending, tax relief, pro-growth economic policies and individual liberty — and to support the men and women who pledge to promote these positions. To the extent that the speaker of the House and Senate Republicans are attacking such groups, it looks as if we’re doing our job.

 

But after this budget vote, our job expands to include informing Americans about who keeps their word in Congress and who does not.

 

When establishment Republicans call spending increases spending cuts, deny that raising taxes is a hike, and champion deficit reduction that doesn’t scratch the surface of our nation’s debt, it suggests a detachment from the facts. But when those who voted for them criticize their elected officials for not keeping their promises, and are then attacked for doing so, it suggests that Kurt Vonnegut was right in observing, “A sane person to an insane society must appear insane.”
