Politico Reports: IRS Asked For Print Outs of Facebook Comments, What Books People Were Reading

A couple of readers have complained that we are being partisan in our coverage of the IRS enemies list scandal. For those who feel this way, we do not mean to be and we have plenty of disdain for both of the major parties. Keep reading and you will see this to be true.

IRS Came After Billy and Franklin Graham Too.

I know for you for Yankee readers this may seem par for the course given what we’ve recently learned, but Billy Graham was for multiple decades kind of the “protestant pope.” (Though he would have hated being called that.) That his organization was targeted by the IRS (according to Franklin Graham) is a big deal.

Jon Stewart hammers Obama on “Enemies List” Scandal, IRS official explains she’s “not good at math.”

It’s just a bit too obvious now. When Jon Stewart is defending the Tea Party folks something has rumbled through the body politic.

If the Associated Press feels concerned enough to call a Democratic president out for intimidation tactics, something weird is going on.

Santelli video:The IRS running Obamacare is dangerous. Wrong political views? “No (heart) stent for you!”

The IRS is the key enforcer, implementer, etc for Obamacare. This should have never been allowed to happen in the first place, but in the wake of the “enemies list” scandal the American people should insist on a total revamp of the program (at the very least) and the removal of the Internal Revenue Service as chief administrator.

Wow. Even MSNBC is bailing on the President? Impeachment mentioned?

This is a pretty interesting clip if one has watched MSNBC over the past 4 years. While Fox is absolutely biased toward the Republicans, MSNBC has outdone Fox in rabid partisanship in recent years. This is my opinion only of course, but I do watch and read stuff from both sources avidly and I think this is a fair assessment.

Is Elon Musk taking taxpayers for a ride with 3 different govt sponsored companies?

 I once almost literally stumbled into a Tesla dealership. I was walking back to the Metro after a lunch meeting somewhere in Downtown Washington DC when I looked over and in the bottom floor of a mirrored glass building were 2 Teslas and a salesman.

Bill Maher is put on his heels, defending Obama, war, and destruction.

I absolutely believe that our methods in the Middle East over the last half century have been colossally wrongheaded. That is kind. In our fear that we would lose access to oil, the substance our economy runs on, we have done some very un-American things. People are dead who should not be. The world is more chaotic (very arguably) because of our tear assing around in the Old World desert.

Obamacare Train Wreck? Washington Post: Obama Administration “has gone hat in hand to health industry executives.”

Obamacare looks increasingly like a disaster. It could be Obama’s Iraq War. (Sadly it’s even more expensive.) Senator Baucus, a Democrat, recently said he saw an Obamacare “train wreck coming down.”

Then he announced his retirement.

GREEN ENERGY TRIUMPH: $11,000,000.00 SPENT PER JOB CREATED

The environment is very important to us at Against Crony Capitalism. We believe in a cleaner planet, we are fans of trees, we like vast expanses of rain forest, we like environmentally friendly materials and energy. But  in order for something to be considered truly sustainable it must be sustainable economically. Does the market want a material or form of energy at a cost which makes sense? If the answer is no, if a project is not economically sustainable, it should not be done.
