    American Thinker ^ | 08/28/2015 | Rick Moran
    A federal judge ordered the IRS to turn over any documents that indicated White House requests for private taxpayer information. Judge Amy Berman Jackson issued the order, eliminating the IRS argument that they couldn't comply because taxpayer information is private. Washington Times: “This court questions whether section 6103 should or would shield records that indicate confidential taxpayer information was misused, or that government officials made improper attempts to access that information,” the judge wrote in denying the IRS’s request to close out the case. The ruling marks yet another federal judge who has ordered the Obama administration to be more...

    A federal judge Friday ordered the IRS to turn over the records of any requests from the White House seeking taxpayers private information from the tax agency, delivering a victory to a group that for two years has been trying to pry the data loose. Its not clear that there were any such requests but Judge Amy Berman Jackson said the IRS cannot just refuse to say so by citing taxpayer confidentiality laws, known as section 6103 of the tax code. This court questions whether section 6103 should or would shield records that indicate confidential taxpayer information was misused,...

Imagine: you're a big Dem donor, elected official in an early primary state or grassroots organizer trying to decide whose bandwagon to jump on. You turn on Morning Joe today, and there's Ron Fournier, MSM member-in-good-standing and someone who's said he's voted for Clintons more than anyone in DC, saying about the email scandal that Hillary "might pay a big price criminally." Schnikes! Where did you say Bernie Sanders is appearing next? As bad as Fournier's statement was for Hillary's fortunes, something Joe Scarborough said might be...

Thank God for small favors. So despite an executive order he signed on the first day of his presidency, the terrorist prison at Guantanamo Bay remains in operation, and the administration continues to stumble in its pursuit of a way to close it down. Lets just say this up front: Guantanamo should never close. The establishment of the...

If youve spent any time in Washington, you know that the desire to help others is optional, and for members of Congress, its frowned upon.

    The Supreme Court had an opportunity, with its ruling in King v. Burwell, to determine whether the United States is a nation of laws or of men. Today, in a 6-3 decision, the Court ruled that we have devolved into the latter. Although the text of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) clearly states that the government may issue subsidies only through insurance exchanges established by the states, Obama administration bureaucrats unilaterally rewrote that part of the law so that the IRS could dispense such premium assistance through marketplaces created by the federal government.

As Obama was speaking at a White House event honoring LGBT Pride Month on Wednesday, an accented voice rang out from the crowd. Obama wasn't amused. "Shame on you," he told his heckler, who was protesting deportations under the Obama administration. Obama responded, "Listen you're in my house ... it's not respectful." The interruption persisted, however, and Obama asked for the heckler to be removed from the East Room. "As a general rule I...

    Gruber’s baaaaaa-aaaaack, and badder than ever. The Wall Street Journal’s Stephanie Armour got 20,000 pages of e-mail from the House Oversight Committee that MIT professor Jonathan Gruber exchanged with the White House on ObamaCare, making it clear that he played a far more integral role in its development than the Obama administration acknowledged after videos emerged of Gruber contradicting their position on King v Burwell. The e-mails cover 14 months and demonstrate intense involvement from the beginning of Barack Obama’s presidency to the passage of the Affordable Care Act: Jonathan Gruber, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology economist whose comments...

    An injunction issued against the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) by federal judge Leigh Martin May could spell the beginning of the end for Administrative Law Courts and with them, 80 years of unconstitutional abuse of power by the Executive branch. Administrative Law allows for the creation of public regulatory agencies and contains all of the statutes, judicial decisions, and regulations that govern them. These regulatory bodies include the EPA and the SEC. Many came into being during the reign of Franklin Roosevelt, the one president more arrogant and power hungry than Barack Obama. The law itself is created by...

    President Barack Obama accidentally compared himself to a prisoner stuck in the White House while speaking at a Beverly Hills fundraiser at filmmaker Tyler Perrys house Thursday.What do you think? We should be reforming our criminal justice system in such a way that we are not incarcerating nonviolent offenders in ways that renders them incapable of getting a job after they leave office, Obama said, effectively comparing being in prison to being in office.What do you think? Little slip of the tongue there. Little Freudian slip, Obama said

    The Secret Service has had a bad couple of years, with prostitution scandals and security gaps that have embarrassed the agency — and in one instance, had an intruder running through the White House. As part of the effort to bolster security around the President, the agency has gone on a hiring spree, bringing in fresh talent to address some of the recent failures. The Washington Post’s Carol Leonnig, who has reported more than a few of those failures, now reports that the rush to man the posts has resulted in agents working in sensitive areas without the proper...

    According to Whitehouse; Fossil fuel companies and their allies are funding a massive and sophisticated campaign to mislead the American people about the environmental harm caused by carbon pollution. Their activities are often compared to those of Big Tobacco denying the health dangers of smoking. Big Tobaccos denial scheme was ultimately found by a federal judge to have amounted to a racketeering enterprise. The Big Tobacco playbook looked something like this: (1) pay scientists to produce studies defending your product; (2) develop an intricate web of PR experts and front groups to spread doubt about the real science; (3) relentlessly...

    A newcomer has arrived at the White House, provoking fierce turf battles and carrying out more than one lethal confrontation in broad daylight. But this is no political power struggle; it is nature. A red-tailed hawk is prowling the lush White House lawn and perching just above the second-story window of President Obamas East Wing residence, lured by a booming population of gray squirrels and undeterred by the harassment of smaller birds that have tried in vain to displace it. The hawk has captivated those who frequent the White House, from visitors to journalists to staff members, some of them...
