  • IRS Brazenly Continues Crackdowns On Conservative Organizations

    A little publicized IRS decision should have conservatives who write about politics very alarmed. The IRS revoked the tax-exempt status of a conservative political organization, the Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty (PHCIL), due to a handful of articles that founder Gary Aldrich wrote in his personal capacity. His decade-old articles simply criticized Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, which the IRS claimed constituted electioneering. The articles were linked to as "alerts" from the PHCIL website. The American Spectator noted, “Although the literature demands that those like Clinton and Kerry be kept out of power, it never specifically says, ‘Don’t vote...
  • David Brock’s Media Matters Allegedly Hid Income From IRS For Years

    03/14/2017 10:40:25 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 32 replies
    In December 2016, a largely unnoticed report from The Citizen’s Audit revealed that David Brock’s Media Matter’s allegedly hid $1 million from the IRS spanning 2010 to 2014. Brock’s Media Matters owns a lease to the entire 6th floor of a building in Washington D.C. – also reported by The Citizen’s Audit – and subleases office space to thirteen other organizations. However, the city of Washington D.C. only recognizes one registered occupant on the 6th floor – Media Matters for America. If they all share the same floor space and pay rent to Brock, that's something to tell the IRS....

    On Thursday evening, precisely 49 days, five hours and 11 minutes after Barack Obama was no longer the president of the United States, the conspiracy-enthusiastic site Gateway Pundit posted a new story: "Breaking: Malik Obama Tweets Alleged Barack Obama Birth Certificate In Kenya" Gateway Pundit never met an anti-Obama or anti-Hillary-Clinton story that it didn’t like. On any number of occasions, the site’s articles have been demonstrably false, as collated by the liberal watchdog group Media Matters. Despite that — or perhaps because of its ferocious defenses of then-candidate Donald Trump over the course of 2016 — an employee of...

    Donald Trump faced seemingly insurmountable obstacles in his unlikely anti-establishment quest for the presidency. Now he may face an obstacle designed to prevent him from finishing his presidency: an effort to impeach him. The Washington Free Beacon reported in late January that it had obtained a confidential David Brock memo listing the “ways the Democratic operative plans to use his numerous organizations to take down President Donald Trump through impeachment,” the site writes. Brock (shown), once a conservative investigative reporter who switched sides and later founded the leftist propaganda site Media Matters for America, discussed his scheme late last month...

    The Washington Free Beacon attended the retreat and obtained David Brock’s private and confidential memorandum from the meeting. The memo, “Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action,” outlines Brock’s four-year agenda to attack Trump and Republicans using Media Matters, American Bridge, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), and Shareblue. The memo contains plans for defeating Trump through impeachment, expanding Media Matters’ mission to combat “government misinformation,” ensuring Democratic control of the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, filing lawsuits against the Trump administration, monetizing political advocacy, using a “digital attacker” to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and damage Republicans, and partnering...

    Media Matters has glommed on to the Left's current obsession with so-called fake news Another spectacular scoop from the brilliant Lachlan Markay at Washington Free Beacon: Markay reports that Facebook’s anti-“fake news” censorship efforts are being driven by the George Soros-funded slander shop Media Matters for America. Markay writes: Media Matters told current and prospective donors at a retreat in Florida over the weekend that it has been in discussions with Facebook leadership about their policies on inaccurate and partisan news stories on the website that many liberals blame for political losses last year.

    Democrats know they need someone to lead them out of the wilderness. But, they say, that someone is not David Brock. As David Brock attempts to position himself as a leader in rebuilding a demoralized Democratic Party in the age of Trump, many leading Democratic organizers and operatives are wishing the man would simply disappear. Many in the party—Clinton loyalists, Obama veterans, and Bernie supporters alike—talk about the man not as a sought-after ally in the fight against Trumpism, but as a nuisance and a hanger-on, overseeing a colossal waste of cash. And former employees say that he has hurt...

    A disturbing Reddit thread claims that in 2008 the ex-business partner of James Alefantis, DC chef and restauranteur Carole Greenwood, caught Alefantis in the act of sexually battering her then 17 year-old son. Subsequent internet postings identified the location of the alleged crime scene as being Comet Ping Pong Pizza, a DC ping pong-themed pizzaria featuring live music acts. Citing a "family emergency", Greenwood abruptly terminated her business dealings with Alefantis and disappeared, finally surfacing as Executive Chef at Bethesda's Food & Wine Co. An anonymous poster to the thread, presumably Alefantis, objects to the dark story: "Why wouldn't I...

    Shortly after meeting with President Obama on Capitol Hill Wednesday in a desperate effort to save Obamacare from repeal, Democrats pulled out their old political playbook and accused Republicans of wanting Americans to be sick.   "The Republican plan to cut healthcare wouldn't make America great again, it would make America sick again. " new Senator Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said. "They seek to rip healthcare away from millions of Americans, creating chaos in our entire economy."

    Danny JohnstonDecember 20, 2016 Clio Chang and Alex Shephard write in The New Republic about the organizational shake-up and shift in focus at the leftwing media watchdog Media Matters for America. The brainchild of its Clinton ally founder David Brock, Media Matters now seeks to reinvent itself in a post-Clinton world. Brock has recently stated that he hopes to transform his social media platform Shareblue into a “Breitbart of the left.” But Clinton’s electoral loss offers a unique challenge for Media Matters because, as Chang and Shephard report, “[t]he organization had long ceased to be a mere watchdog, having positioned...

    Uncovered financial statements expose Media Matters. The organization received $1,052,500 in sublet rental income from 2010 to 2014, but failed to report this income to the IRS. Instead, key players pocketed this money for their own personal use. David Brock, recently described by Politico as “the Democrats’ dark-arts master,” has some explaining to do. His organization, Media Matters for America, has failed to report to the IRS over $1 million in sublet rental income from 2010 to 2014. David Brock and his allies are most likely pocketing that money for themselves. Media Matters shares office space with 13 separate organizations...

    Media Matters founder David Brock gave a speech to a group of Democratic lawmakers and activists Monday in which he called the party to immediately begin resisting the Trump administration, even before Trump takes office: Given the reality of the election, the Democratic Party must quickly learn to be an opposition party. I know it’s not in Democratic DNA, but the need to aggressively oppose Trump is urgent. We won the most votes in this election, and we should act like it. It’s time to put on our big boy pants.
