Threats to Impeach IRS Chief Looming

Now here is something I can get behind! The Roanoke Times roanoke.com reported: Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen failed to comply with a congressional subpoena, allowed documents to be destroyed and misled the public. Chaffetz chairs the House Oversight Committee, which has been investigating the IRS for more than two years. Chaffetz moved Tuesday to impeach the head of the Internal Revenue Service, saying he violated the public trust and obstructed congressional Read more […]

Obama Administration Removes a Remaining Level of Accountability

How can you expect accountability if you have to ask the permission of the person being held accountable? Here’s another heroic deed performed by the most transparent Administration in history. The Washington Post reports, “Justice Dept. watchdog blasts his own agency for blocking access to wiretaps, grand jury cases and says his job is undermined.” The Obama administration has ruled that inspectors general have to get permission from the agency they’re monitoring for access to wiretaps, Read more […]

Transgender Rights and Real Atrocity in Prisons

Two homosexual celebrities are lobbying the DOJ to “do more” for transgender rights. Elton John and Michael Stipe (the singer and songwriter for R.E.M. before it broke up) are lobbying the Department of Justice to “do more to end the culture of violence and discrimination surrounding gender identity and expression,” according to Newser.com. They also wrote, “We urge the state of Georgia to embrace desperately needed changes to their correctional system.” The problem here is that Read more […]

Use Choke Point on the Justice Department

Operation Choke Point demonstrates the perversity and endless appetite of Big Government. This is the result of Statism, whether you call it socialism, fascism, or anything else. Once government takes excessive regulatory control of businesses, certain individuals with severe character flaws take control (types irresistibly drawn to the bureaucracy and public office—where they have access to control over others). They simply can’t resist the temptation to use their ill-gotten power to restrict Read more […]

Liberalism Thrives on Using Power to Plunder

The State promotes ideological groups that support its own expansive agenda by plunder, forcing others to give those groups money. Here’s a headline in the Washington Times about a Liberal plunder scheme: “Justice Department giving away the public’s money to third-party interests.” For the past decade, the U.S. Justice Department has engaged in the dubious practice of giving away the public’s money when it settles a case, by sometimes conditioning a settlement on a company’s agreement Read more […]

Left-wing Groups that Support Big Government Get Paid Off

Eric Holder is finally being investigated for forcing banks to make sure Democrat advocates get paid off. This article provides further evidence that Progressivism is a parasite–it cannot exist without a healthy, productive host to feed upon. People like Eric Holder make our government nothing more than the biggest example in history of organized crime. Perhaps you remember the highly-trumpeted $17-billion settlement with Bank of America over trillions of dollars in profit from fraud. Read more […]

DOJ to Recommend Officer Not Be Charged in Ferguson Shooting

It’s not a totally done deal yet, but the New York Times reports (with indignity) that the Department of Justice is preparing a report that will recommend Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson not be charged with federal civil rights violations in the shooting of black teenage thug Michael Brown. The FBI investigation into the incident that sparked months of rioting funded by left-wing extremist groups found that there was no — repeat, NO — evidence to support civil rights charges, despite months Read more […]

Did Eric Holder Just End Asset Forfeiture?

It looks like the Department of Justice has put the brakes on Federal involvement in asset forfeiture. Here is the Guardian’s report: “Attorney general Eric Holder puts halt to warrantless ‘stop and seize’ tactics.” State and local police will no longer be allowed to seize citizens’ property without evidence that a crime has occurred, following an action by the attorney general, Eric Holder, to effectively end the program. Holder on Friday announced a new policy that, with a few Read more […]

Eric Holder Aide Called CBS to Stop Sharyl Attkisson

A DOJ Government Employee Made It Her Job to Stop Sharyl Attkisson. “I”m also calling Sharryl”s editor and reaching out to [CBS news correspondent Bob] Scheiffer. She’s out of control.” Those are the words of Eric Holder’s chief press aide, Tracy Schmaler, in an email to White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz, regarding steps he planned to take to get CBS Journalist Sharyl Attkisson “under control.” The email was part of 42,000 documents released to Judicial Watch Read more […]

Eric Holder’s Replacement: Janet Napolitano?

As we all know, the Obama Administration is now looking for Eric Holder’s replacement. I originally thought that the best thing about the replacement would be that he or she will only be in office for a couple of years. But then it occurred to me that, if Hillary wins, she might keep whoever it is. Even if she doesn’t keep Obama’s appointment, she will probably pick someone as bad or worse. So that’s a reminder to us all to get a different president in office. This article at politico.com Read more […]

DOJ AttackingTown for Not Licensing an Islamic Cultural Center

Whether or not a Muslim gets to build an Islamic cultural center should depend on whether or not a Muslim owns property and has the money to build it. I’m not a fan of zoning laws. Atheists use them when they can to harass Christians. While all nations should be Christian nations, I harbor no illusions that America is really one anymore. As such, I don’t see any legal basis for zoning according to a religious doctrine. But whether or not zoning laws should exist, they do, and the town Read more […]

Operation Choke Point – FDIC Backing Down?

When I posted about Operation Chokepoint, I didn’t get any inkling that the FDIC would ever back down. But it seems that they might be doing so. (Let’s hope!) If you don’t remember, Operation Chokepoint was the FDIC’s strategy to basically financially cripple legal businesses. The Department of Justice has its own secret drone program—it is called Operation Chokepoint and its drones are banks.  According to Jason Oxman in The Hill, the department is attacking “disfavored – but Read more […]
