Timeline Of Both Hijacked Planes


Didja hear Hillary Clinton’s new ad? I’m not gonna post it because I’m sure that many of you, like me, cannot stand the sound of her voice. Anyhoo, it’s aimed at Trump and she sez that New Yorkers don’t build walls and they don’t try to keep people out of the country because of their religion. Too bad. Maybe if they had, like Trump wants to do now and The Hag doesn’t, the two World Trade Centers would still be standing. You do know that members of a certain religion flew airplanes into them on 9/11 in the name of their religion, yannow “THE RELIGION OF PEACE.” So, I guess Cankles is saying that New Yorkers are suicidal. I know one New Yorker who isn’t and he’s not a carpetbagger like the PIAP from Chicago by way of Arkansas. I do know that New Yorkers are stupid since they elected her to the Senate.

Cruz Leads Trump In Wisconsin By 10 Points!………. ( This Poll Was BEFORE Trump Made His Insane Remarks About Abortion…Papa Mike )



This seems to buttress the Marquette poll from yesterday which had a similar spread.


Via Fox:

Ted Cruz leads Donald Trump in the Republican nomination contest in Wisconsin, according to a Fox Business Network Poll released Thursday.

Cruz garners 42 percent among Wisconsin likely GOP primary voters, while Trump receives 32 percent. John Kasich comes in third with 19 percent.

Among just those who say they will “definitely” vote, Cruz’s lead over Trump widens to 46-33 percent, and Kasich gets 16 percent.

There is a big gender gap. Women back Cruz over Trump by a 19-point margin (46-27 percent). The two candidates are much closer among men: Cruz gets 40 percent to Trump’s 35 percent.

Cruz’s advantage over the real estate mogul also comes from self-described “very” conservative voters, who give him a 36-point lead (61 percent Cruz vs. 25 percent Trump).

Horror Continues: ISIS Refuses To Allow Christians in Raqqa to Leave


PICTURE BELOW WAS POSTED BY Papa Mike and not by the source of the article…….PM


Unfortunately, Secretary of State John Kerry also announced the Obama administration wouldn’t be changing military strategy in Iraq and Syria in order to stop it.

Now, adding horror to the the ongoing nightmare for Christians trapped in the region, ISIS is holding at least 43 Christian families hostage in Raqqa and will not allow them to leave. Lisa Daftari at The Foreign Desk has more:

The Islamic State is now preventing the last remaining Christians from leaving Raqqa, Syria, according to activists on the ground.

According to the group Raqqa Is Being Silently Slaughtered, which was founded by a group of journalists turned activists, ISIS has put out a new decree preventing both Christians and Armenians in Raqqa from leaving.

Raqqa, now the de-facto Syrian headquarters of the Islamic State, fell into rebel control in March 2013 in a battle between insurgents led by the Islamist jihadi group Al Nusra and Bashar Al Assad’s regime. Raqqa then became the first provincial capital under rebel control in the war.

“The suffering of Christians began with ISIS control of Raqqa,” RIBSS said on its website about the treatment of Christians under the jihadi militant group.

“ISIS looks at Christians as infidels loyal to the West more than their loyalty to their homeland which they live.”

In the 1920s, Christians constituted up to 30 percent of Syria’s population and had lived there for 2000 years. Popular belief holds that the apostle Paul converted on the road to Damascus, and a small segment of Christians from the town of Maaloula still speak Aramaic, the language that Jesus spoke.

More recently, 10 percent of Syria’s 22 million population were Christians.

Christian Genocide At The Hands Of “Islam”

Obama can make speach after speach about how we all need to STOP saying bad things and blaming ISLAM, even though Islam, was directly responsible to all the CHRISTIAN  GENOCIDE, especially the “Great Crime,” that is the Armenian GENOCIDE which took place under Turkey’s Islamic Ottoman Empire, during and after WWI. when 2,000,000 CHRISTIANS DIED….We have herd all this ISLAM CRAP since  OBAMA was elected President, BUT NOT ONE WORD OF ISLAMIC GENOCIDE!! I must be fair because there were other Presidents before Obama that refused to use the words Christian Genocide… It’s about time that we all stand up to Obama, Kerry, Loretta Lynch and especially the Iranian Communist herself, Obama’s Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett    that refuse to acknowledge Christian Genocide…

The facts are devastating. Upwards of 170,000 Christians have been systematically murdered by the Islamic State and sympathizers; whole Christian communities, villages and provinces are being eradicated in the Middle East; a Christian is executed in Syria, Iraq or Libya every five minutes by one account. Yet the Obama White House and Kerry State Department do nothing. There is no declaration of “genocide” against Christians, no interest in raising the topic. Like the aversion to saying “Islamic terrorist,” this administration cannot say “Christian Genocide.” Why?

The answer is both simple and complex. Simple, in that saying that Islamic State is committing “Christian genocide,” beheading, crucifying, enslaving and seeking to eliminate Christians via “genocide” triggers a legal need to act under international law. There would have to be direct aid, international action and specific intervening actions by the United States under a 1948 convention. Complex, in that there seem to be strains inside the Obama Administration that seem to wish not to tag an Islamic radical movement, which they refuse to call Islamic, with eradicating Christians. Bizarre, but true.

The irony and tragedy are both deepening. Christians, Christian values, and millennia-old Christian places of worship are being methodically erased from the wider Middle East. The Obama White House and Kerry State Department stand and watch. They look away from the issue, away from the obvious “Christian genocide” – because once they say the truth, they become obligated by law to act. They do not want to act.

Is the Obama Administration afraid to act, afraid of reprisals from somewhere or someone? Do they doubt their own moral and military ability, that is our moral and military ability as a Nation, to say what is right and do what it right? Do they consciously not care, or worse: Are they consciously indifferent to the plight of Christians? The record is unclear, but the sound of silence on this issue is becoming deafening.

One thing Americans do not pride themselves on is moral indifference, especially as a Nation founded by Christians and on Christian values, a Nation focused on living to our higher calling not indulging our lowest instincts. We are not about fear, but about courage; we are not about slipping backwards but about pressing forwards. Nor do we counsel or think of ourselves as cowards.

Yet the very inaction we are witnessing is a sign of all this – moral corruption and indifference, intransigence in the face of obvious evil, at best a collective sense of denial, at worst unintended complicity. If we do not act to protect these Christians and Christianity, in the very cradle of the religion, when and where will we?

Cruz, Lee Criticize DOJ Loretta Lynch For Giving Special Treatment to Abortion Clinics



The Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act of 1994, enforced by the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division, was created with two goals in mind: protect persons seeking reproductive health services and those seeking to exercise religious freedom. In a new letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) accuse the DOJ of pursuing access to abortion services while ignoring the latter objective.

“The DOJ’s brazen pursuit (and subsequent online promotion) of—at best—frivolous prosecutions in the abortion context, combined with its failure to list any prosecutions or enforcement activities in the religious worship context, gives the distinct impression of a warped and biased enforcement of FACE by the DOJ,” the senators wrote.

History supports their accusation.
Not only did Lynch ignore religious liberty in her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month, but the majority of FACE cases appear to focus on the protection of abortion clinics. Not one case on the Civil Rights Division webpage mentions the agency’s goal to defend churches.

The FBI has noted that although violence at abortion clinics rose during the 1980s, since the FACE Act was enforced, that violence has dropped dramatically.

This has led legal experts like The Heritage Foundation’s Hans von Spakovsky to suggest the FACE Act is being intentionally applied with a lopsided, pro-abortion agenda.

“Look at the church burnings that have occurred in the past two decades,” he said. “The idea that one’s not more important than the other, I think, is not correct. And second, a number of the cases [the Justice Department] has filed have been clearly frivolous and meritless cases.”

Because of the agency’s apparent bias, the senators have asked the DOJ to provide them with detailed information about the organizations affected by FACE, both in regards to abortion and religious freedom. They want a full report by April


If Trump is the Republican Presidential nominee on November 8th of this year I will stay home rather than support this madman! He’s a complete idiot, and a total embarrassment to the Republican Party. All Trump has done is open the White House doors to Hillary Clinton AND “First Man”, “Puppet Master” himself “Slick Willy” Clinton!

With the Hildabeast as President it would be like Obama never left. You can also count on her, and probably during her first 4 years, placing 2 “Far Left Liberal” judges to the Supreme Court…Before Antonin Scalia died the court leaned Conservative 5/4 with Hillary as President the court will be 5/4 Liberal then very likely 6/4 by the end of her first term.



States Moving To Restore Work Requirements For Food Stamp Recipients



VIDEO HERE——> http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/03/29/states-moving-to-restore-work-requirements-for-food-stamp-recipients.html?intcmp=hpbt1


States are moving to once again require able-bodied adults to put in work hours in exchange for food stamps, after the requirements largely were suspended by the Obama administration.

The slow-moving reversal follows the administration pulling back on Clinton-era changes that required recipients to work for government welfare benefits. Signing the reform bill in 1996 alongside then-Speaker Newt Gingrich, then-President Bill Clinton said the goal was to make welfare “a second chance, not a way of life.”

But during the last recession, President Obama allowed states to suspend a requirement that able-bodied adults without children work at least 20 hours per week or participate in a training program to receive benefits for more than three months.

He allowed recipients to stay on food stamps indefinitely, arguing the three-month maximum was unfair with unemployment at 10 percent.

“Food stamp recipients didn’t cause the financial crisis, Wall Street did,” said Obama at this past January’s State of the Union address.

Unemployment today is half of what it was in 2009, yet last year more than 40 states did not require welfare recipients to work.

Kansas was one of the first states to reverse that in 2013.

“I believe most Americans and most Kansans think it’s common sense,” said Andrew Wiens of the Kansas Department for Children & Families. “These are able-bodied adults without dependents. They don’t have children in the home. They’re not elderly, they’re not disabled. These folks should be working.”

Since Kansas reinstated work rules, food stamp rolls
dropped by 20,000 and the incomes of those who left increased by 127 percent, Wiens said.

The state also imposed limits on how recipients could use their benefits after finding some enrollees used their welfare cash and food stamps cards on cruise ships.

“Those benefits should be used for necessities,” Wiens said. “You can’t use them at casinos, strip clubs, massage or tattoo parlors.”

Maine followed the Kansas lead in 2014. In the first three months, the number of able-bodied adults without children on food stamps fell by almost 80 percent. It also cracked down on recipients using their welfare benefits out of state after finding hundreds of Maine residents used their EBT cash cards at or near Disney World.

“Maine found millions of dollars being spent in Florida,” said Josh Archambault of the Foundation for Government Accountability. “That raised all sorts of red flags.”

Another red flag — a Maine state employee recognized the name of a large state lottery winner. It turned out the state did not require an asset test, allowing food stamp recipients to have vacation homes, multiple cars and lottery winnings and still qualify. After a 2015 state study found 4,000 welfare recipients won more than $22 million in the state lottery funds, Maine imposed a limit on assets.

“An individual could win a half million dollars,” said Archambault. “In the month they receive the lump sum they may not qualify because it counts as income. The very next month and every month going forward, they can legally sign up for food stamps.”

Since 2010, nearly 4,000 welfare recipients in Maine won $1,000 or more. Eleven of them won 10 or more times, and eight individuals won prizes in excess of $500,000.

: ISIS Decimated Under Bush – Grew 4,400% Under Obama (VIDEO)

Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan admitted during his speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies that George Bush had decimated ISIS and that the terrorist group had grown by as much as 4,400 percent under Barack Obama.

CSIS hosted John Brennan on March 25, 2016.




The American Enterprise Institute reported:

In a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies yesterday, CIA director John Brennan made a startling admission: The Islamic State was “decimated” under George W. Bush and had just “700-or-so adherents left” following the surge in Iraq. Said Brennan:

[ISIS] was, you know, pretty much decimated when US forces were there in Iraq. It had maybe 700-or-so adherents left. And then it grew quite a bit in the last several years, when it split then from al-Qaida in Syria, and set up its own organization.

But in September 2014, a CIA analysis found that:

[ISIS] can muster between 20,000 and 31,500 fighters across Iraq and Syria … This new total reflects an increase in members because of stronger recruitment since June following battlefield successes and the declaration of a caliphate, greater battlefield activity, and additional intelligence.

This means that, by the CIA’s own estimate, ISIS has grown on President Obama’s watch from just 700 fighters to between 20,000 and 31,500 fighters.

That is an increase of between 2,700 and 4,400 %.

Moreover, Brennan tacitly acknowledged that the Obama administration had underestimated the ISIS threat. At CSIS, Brennan declared that:

Not content to limiting its killing fields to Iraqi and Syrian lands, and to setting up local franchises in other countries of the Middle East, South Asia and Africa, ISIL has developed an external operations agenda that is now implementing … with lethal effect.

Second Judge Says Clinton Email Setup May Have Been in ‘Bad Faith’ ( That’s Lettig Her Down Really Easy…. By Papa Mike )


Those are the BEST words you could come up with Judge Royce Lamberth to describe Hillary Clinton’s actions, are you kidding me?……..Papa Mike

By Jonathan Allen


NEW YORK (Reuters) – A second federal judge has taken the rare step of allowing a group suing for records from Hillary Clinton’s time as U.S. secretary of state to seek sworn testimony from officials, saying there was “evidence of government wrong-doing and bad faith.”

The language in Judge Royce Lamberth’s order undercut the Democratic presidential contender’s assertion she was allowed to set up a private email server in her home for her work as the country’s top diplomat and that the arrangement was not particularly unusual.

He described Clinton’s email arrangement as “extraordinary” in his order filed on Tuesday in federal district court in Washington.

Referring to the State Department, Clinton and Clinton’s aides, he said there had been “constantly shifting admissions by the Government and the former government officials.”

The Spokesmen for Clinton did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The case is a civil matter, but the order adds to the legal uncertainty that has overshadowed Clinton’s campaign to be the Democratic nominee in the Nov. 3 presidential election.

The FBI is also conducting a criminal inquiry into the arrangement after it emerged that classified government secrets ended up in Clinton’s unsecured email account. Clinton has said she does not think she will be charged with a crime.

Lamberth’s order granted the request by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group suing the department under open records laws, to gather evidence, including sworn testimony. The group has filed several lawsuits, including one seeking records about the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

“Where there is evidence of government wrong-doing and bad faith, as here, limited discovery is appropriate, even though it is exceedingly rare in FOIA (freedom-of-information) cases,”

Lamberth noted in his order.

The government is normally given the benefit of the doubt that it properly searched and produced records.

Since the email arrangement came to public knowledge a year ago, the State Department has found itself defending Clinton in scores of lawsuits from groups, individuals and news outlets who say they were wrongly denied access to Clinton’s federal records.

Clinton left the department in 2013, but did not return her email records to the government until nearly two years later.

Last month, Judge Emmet Sullivan, who is overseeing a separate Judicial Watch lawsuit over other Clinton-related records, allowed a similar motion for discovery.

Here We Go: FBI to Interview Hillary, Top Aides in ‘New Phase’ of Email Scandal Probe

Huma’s parents Saleha Mahmood Abedin and her father [died in ’97] were founding members of the Muslim Brotherhood’s IMMA – where mom still works as an editor.

The IMMA is dedicated to converting all Muslim minority countries into Muslim MAJORITY countries,…without borders….

Your going to see at the end of this VIDEO below how most of the panel of “Far Left Wing Liberals” with the exception of Joe Scarborough, CONTINUE to not believe the seriousness of these FBI investigations, especially when it comes to them saying the word, “CRIMINAL”….BUT listen to Joe when that one idiot, sitting to the far right continues to say several times, “the CRIMINAL bar is just set really “high” for someone running for President” and that’s why there probably be NO CRIMINAL CHARGES BROUGHT AGAINST her. ….Then Joe sticks it to him when his reply to that was, “just where are you finding those words about the bar set too HIGH”, then the DIMocrat worm “walks his words back” with, “well your the lawyer”…..

 One last thing on all these FBI interviews with Clinton staffers and aides ( short for Hillary’s stooges that their daily promises to her is, ” YOUR MAJESTY, YOU LIE AND WE WILL SWEAR YOU SAID IT” ) So I hope the FBI is smart enough to Interview her “stooges” AND Hillary at the same time, so none of them are able, under oath or not, to be able to compare notes, and then adjust their testimonies accordingly! ……Papa Mike



Hillary Clinton has lied repeatedly about virtually every aspect of this scandal — with two additional lies being confirmed by a freshly-released message just last week. Via Judicial Watch:…..Is this is the kind of person we want for President?





When it was revealed earlier this month that the FBI had extended immunity to Bryan Pagliano — the former Hillary Clinton staffer who set up her improper, unsecure, national security-compromising email scheme — both the New York Times and Washington Post reported that federal investigators were likely to seek interviews with senior Clinton aides, as well as the presidential candidate herself. As Leah mentioned earlier, the Los Angeles Times is now reporting that a federal prosecutor has begun phoning up Clintonworld, alerting key figures’ attorneys that this is, in fact, happening:

Federal prosecutors investigating the mishandling of classified materials on Hillary Clinton’s private email server have begun the process of setting up formal interviews with some of her longtime and closest aides, according to two people familiar with the probe, an indication that the inquiry is moving into its final phases. Those interviews and the final review of the case, however, could still take many weeks, all but guaranteeing that the investigation will continue to dog Clinton’s presidential campaign through most, if not all, of the remaining presidential primaries. No dates have been set for questioning the advisors, but a federal prosecutor in recent weeks has called their lawyers to alert them that he would soon be doing so, the sources said. Prosecutors also are expected to seek an interview with Clinton herself, though the timing remains unclear.

The interviews by FBI agents and prosecutors will play a significant role in helping them better understand whether Clinton or her aides knowingly or negligently discussed classified government secrets over a non-secure email system when she served as secretary of State. The meetings also are an indication that much of the investigators’ background work – recovering deleted emails, understanding how the server operated and determining whether it was breached – is nearing completion. “The interviews are critical to understand the volume of information they have accumulated,” said James McJunkin, former head of the FBI’s Washington field office. “They are likely nearing the end of the investigation and the agents need to interview these people to put the information in context. They will then spend time aligning these statements with other information, emails, classified documents, etc., to determine whether there is a prosecutable case.”

This clearly isn’t a pro forma “security review,” the go-to dismissal Mrs. Clinton employed in media interviews and primary debates for MONTHS. The LA Times story repeatedly casts a Clinton indictment as unlikely, quoting a law professor who doesn’t believe the evidence backs up allegations of criminality. Other legal experts disagree, such as former US Attorney General and federal judge Michael Mukasey, whose January Wall Street Journal op/ed spelled out the case for prosecution: “From [Clinton’s] direction that classification rules be disregarded, to the presence on her personal email server of information at the highest level of classification, to her repeated falsehoods of a sort that juries are told every day may be treated as evidence of guilty knowledge—it is nearly impossible to draw any conclusion other than that she knew enough to support a conviction at the least for mishandling classified information,” he wrote. The law forbids grossly negligent handling of classified material by US officials. Mrs. Clinton ordered a private email server set up, in violation of “clear cut rules,” through which she conducted all of her official business. It was woefully under-secure, yet ended up housing more than 2,000 classified emails, including dozens designated as secret, top secret, and beyond top secret. She maintained her use of the server even after she was specifically warned by the State Department that foreign hackers were trying to penetrate government secrets by targeting top officials’ private email accounts. I’m no expert, but in what way would this conduct not rise to the level of gross negligence? Furthermore, Hillary Clinton has lied repeatedly about virtually every aspect of this scandal — with two additional lies being confirmed by a freshly-released message just last week. Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained State Department documents from February 2009 containing emails that appear to contradict statements by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department and that she did not use her clintonemail.com email system until March 2009. The emails also contain more evidence of the battle between security officials in the State Department, National Security Administration, Clinton and her staff over attempts to obtain secure Blackberrys. The new documents include another February 13, 2009, email, written after the Mills-Clinton exchange, that shows that State and NSA security officials were shocked and surprised by Clinton’s Blackberry demands…Despite [warnings] about using Blackberry “outside a SCIF,” Mrs. Clinton and her staff continued to use unsecured Blackberrys. The documents suggest a continued push for secure Blackberrys in late March 2009 but the documents are heavily redacted…“So now we know that, contrary to her statement under oath suggesting otherwise, Hillary Clinton did not turn over all her government emails,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “We also know why Hillary Clinton falsely suggests she didn’t use clintonemail.com account prior to March, 18, 2009 – because she didn’t want Americans to know about her February 13, 2009, email that shows that she knew her Blackberry and email use was not secure.”

In other words, no, Clinton did not turn over all of her work-related emails as she’s claimed under oath (which we already knew to be untrue), and no, she did not start using her bootleg ClintonEmail account in late March of 2009. Before you go, be sure to read WaPo’s extensive new story revealing the backstory of Hillary’s email scandal. While the Obama administration was talking a big game on accountability and transparency, Hillary’s cabal was engineering self-serving and rule-breaking workarounds. And despite admonitions from national security officials to abide by established protocols, Hillary’s inner circle did exactly the opposite. The piece is so packed with useful information, it’s probably worth a closer look in a follow-up post. Stay tuned. In the meantime, here’s a pretty thorough review of the latest developments from MSNBC’s Morning Joe, which has been fairly solid on fact-checking Hillary throughout the email controversy:

Interesting Bit of Legislative History – McCarran Walter Act of 1952…….WE CAN’T KEEP WHO FROM ENTERING THE UNITED STATES, THINK AGAIN!





When you get to the bottom of this “Must Read Article” check out the last couple of sentences!.

Interesting Bit of Legislative History – McCarran Walter Act of 1952

Note: McCarran and Walter were Democrats. This act was created in 1952 and used by Carter in 1979 …

Trump was recently severely criticized for suggesting that the U.S. should limit or temporarily suspend the immigration of certain ethnic groups, nationalities, and even people of certain religions (Muslims). The criticisms condemned such a suggestion as, among other things, being “Un-American,” dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous and racist. Congressmen and Senators swore that they would never allow such legislation, and Obama called such a prohibition on immigration unconstitutional. As if, all of a sudden, he gives a damn about the Constitution.




As Gomer Pyle would say, “Surprise, Surprise !!!” It seems that the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on several occasions. Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 allows for the “Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by president (something which we haven’t had for the past seven and a half years). Whenever the president finds that the entry of aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, the president may, by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”




The act was utilized by Jimmy Carter, no less, in 1979 to keep Iranians out of the United States , but he actually did more. He made all Iranian students already here check in, and then he deported a bunch. Seven thousand were found in violation of their visas, 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the United States in 1979. You won’t hear a word about this from the liberal media, propaganda machine.


It is of note that the act requires that an applicant for immigration must be of good moral character and “attached to the principles of the Constitution.”


Since the Quran forbids Muslims to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically, all Muslims should be refused immigration.

Federal Appeals Court Slams IRS in Tea Party case, Demands Documents

Republicans demanded President Obama to FIRE Commissioner John Koskinen and if he wouldn’t do it, they would!……..Papa Mike


SEE VIDEO——-> http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/03/24/federal-appeals-court-slams-irs-in-tea-party-case-demands-documents.html?intcmp=hplnws



In a blistering rebuke of the IRS, a Cincinnati-based federal appeals court has ordered the tax-collecting agency to quit stalling and produce the names of organizations it targeted based on their political leanings.

The unanimous ruling by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit gave the IRS two weeks to turn over the documents sought as part of a class-action lawsuit brought by the NorCal Tea Party Patriots.

“The lawyers in the Department of Justice have a long and storied tradition of defending the nation’s interests and enforcing its laws … The conduct of the IRS’s attorneys in the district court falls outside that tradition,” the opinion said.

Mark Meckler, president of Citizens for Self-Governance which is funding the class-action lawsuit, applauded the court’s bold comments.

“We are very pleased that the 6th Circuit had smacked down the IRS and its thuggish DOJ lawyers,” Meckler told FoxNews.com, adding that he felt the IRS is an “unredeemable organization.”

The NorCal Tea Party Patriots sued the IRS in 2013 after a Treasury inspector general concluded the IRS had unfairly singled out for extra scrutiny conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status.

For the civil suit, the NorCal Tea Party Patriots requested information from the IRS detailing the organizations targeted — information they say they have not received or has been wrapped up in legal red tape. The panel of federal judges agreed.

“The lawsuit has progressed as slowly as the underlying applications themselves: at every turn the IRS has resisted the plaintiffs’ requests for information regarding the IRS’s treatment of the plaintiff class, eventually to the open frustration of the district court,” the judges claimed in court documents.

The IRS has pushed back on the allegations and maintains that handing over the names and organizations on its “Be on the Look Out” list would violate privacy laws. A lower district court has twice ordered the IRS to produce the documents. In response, the IRS sought a “writ of mandamus” to block the court order.

Tuesday’s angry reprimand by the federal appeals court is in response to the IRS’s writ of mandamus.

“The district court ordered production of those lists, and did so again over an IRS motion to reconsider. Yet, almost a year later, the IRS still has not complied with the court’s orders. Instead the IRS now seeks from this court a writ of mandamus, an extraordinary remedy reserved to correct only the clearest abuses of power by a district court,” Judge Raymond Kethledge wrote. “We deny the petition.”

The panel of judges gave the IRS two weeks to start handing over the documents.

In the 17-page opinion, Kethledge laid out a list of requests NorCal made to the IRS that were either ignored entirely or stuck in a legal runaround. In one, the IRS demanded NorCal provide 3,000 pages of what the inspector general called unnecessary information. In turn, the IRS then claimed it would be “unduly burdensome” for it to provide such information as the names of IRS employees who worked on the case.

The IRS told FoxNews.com it does not comment on pending litigation.

When “Slick Willy” Clinton Was President…..

If you’re under 50 you really need to read this, if you are over 50, share it with those under fifty.

Amazing to me how much I have forgotten! It adds up!!

When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in a democratic controlled congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts.

Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration. Next she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as “my worst mistake.” Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.

Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection. When a little probing led to the discovered of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.

Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.

Many younger votes will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.” Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.

Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House. Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.

Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the “bimbo eruption” and scandal defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle was:

She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.

She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor. After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr’s investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.

Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for ‘lying under oath’ to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.

Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.

After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.

What a swell party – ready for another four or eight year of this type low-life mess?

Now we are exposed to the destruction of possibly incriminating emails while Hillary was Secretary of State and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation – we have no idea what shoe will fall next. But to her loyal fans – “what difference does it make?”

Electing Hillary Clinton president would be like granting Satan absolution and giving him the keys to heaven!


Stay At 17 Inches

Don’t Widen the Plate

In Nashville, Tennessee, during the first week of January, 1996, more than 4,000 baseball coaches descended upon the Opryland Hotel for the 52nd annual ABCA convention.

While I waited in line to register with the hotel staff, I heard other more veteran coaches rumbling about the lineup of speakers scheduled to present during the weekend. One name, in particular, kept resurfacing, always with the same sentiment — “John Scolinos is here? Oh man, worth every penny of my airfare.”

Who the hell is John Scolinos, I wondered. No matter, I was just happy to be there.
In 1996, Coach Scolinos was 78 years old and five years retired from a college coaching career that began in 1948. He shuffled to the stage to an impressive standing ovation, wearing dark polyester pants, a light blue shirt, and a string around his neck from which home plate hung — a full-sized, stark-white home plate. Seriously, I wondered, who in the hell is this guy?

After speaking for twenty-five minutes, not once mentioning the prop hanging around his neck, Coach Scolinos appeared to notice the snickering among some of the coaches. Even those who knew Coach Scolinos had to wonder exactly where he was going with this, or if he had simply forgotten about home plate since he’d gotten on stage.
Then, finally …

Thanks Jim

Silvio, an 80-year-old Italian goes to the doctor for a check-up. The doctor is amazed at what good shape the guy is in and asks, ‘how do you stay in such great physical condition?’

I’m Italian and I am a golfer,’ says Silvio, ‘and that’s why I’m in such good shape. I’m up well before daylight and out golfing up and down the fairways. I have a glass of vino, and all is well.’

“‘Well’ says the doctor, ‘I’m sure that helps, but there’s got to be more to it. How old was your Father when he died?’

‘Who said my Father’s dead?’

The doctor is amazed. ‘You mean you’re 80 years old and your Father’s still alive. How old is he?’

‘He’s 100 years old,’ says Silvio. ‘In fact he golfed with me this morning, and then we went to the topless beach for a walk and had a little vino and that’s why he’s still alive. He’s Italian and he’s a golfer, too.’

‘Well,’ the doctor says, ‘that’s great, but I’m sure there’s more to it than that. How about your Father’s Father? How old was he when he died?’

‘Who said my Grandpa’s dead?’

Stunned, the doctor asks, ‘you mean you’re 80 years old and your
Grandfather’s’ still living! Incredible, how old is he?’

‘He’s 118 years old,’ says the Old Italian golfer.

The doctor is getting frustrated at this point,
‘So, I guess he went golfing with you this morning too?’

‘No, Nonno couldn’t go this morning because he’s getting married today.’

At this point the doctor is close to losing it. ‘Getting married? Why would a 118 year- old guy want to get married?’

‘Who said he wanted to get married?”
