(2) Jeferson Area Tea Party - Rein in the IRS Rally - Tuesday, May 21, 12:30 p.m., Free Speech Monument, Downtown Mall. Tea Party Patriots, a national organization of tea party activists, has called for "Rein in the IRS" rallies to be held at 12:00 noon tomorrow at Internal Revenue Service offices across the United States. These rallies are intended to protest the recent scandal of the Internal Revenue Service singling out tea party and other conservative groups for undue scrutiny when applying for tax-exempt status. JATP Executive Board members will deliver a statement in front of the Charlottesville IRS office at 12:00 noon. The business block in that area is tight -- too tight to hold a rally of any significant size without blocking pedestrian or street traffic and risking disbursement by the police.
So, we are asking our members and others NOT TO COME to the IRS building -- only the members of the executive board should attend. You may hear about this in the media, so we're letting you know to avoid confusion. We will read a statement (hopefully with at least one media person present), then walk into the IRS office to present the highest ranking official we can find with a printed copy of our statement.
** At 12:30 p.m., JATP members and other concerned citizens are invited to gather for an impromptu rally at the First Amendment Monument/Free Speech Wall on the Downtown Mall (near the NTELOS Wireless Pavilion and City Hall). Leadership will briefly discuss its statement and experience at the IRS, then citizens present will be welcome to share their thoughts about the overreach and abuse of government.
Respectful signs will be welcome.
(3) Obama and the IRS: The Smoking Gun? American Spectator - President met with anti-Tea Party IRS union chief the day before agency targeted Tea Party.
“For me, it’s about collaboration.” — National Treasury Employees Union President Colleen Kelley on the relationship between the anti-Tea Party IRS union and the Obama White House
Is President Obama directly implicated in the IRS scandal?
Is the White House Visitors Log the trail to the smoking gun?
The stunning questions are raised by the following set of new facts.
March 31, 2010.
According to the White House Visitors Log, provided here in searchable form by U.S. News and World Report, the president of the anti-Tea Party National Treasury Employees Union, Colleen Kelley, visited the White House at 12:30pm that Wednesday noon time of March 31st.
The White House lists the IRS union leader’s visit this way:
Kelley, Colleen Potus 03/31/2010 12:30
In White House language, “POTUS” stands for “President of the United States.”
The very next day after her White House meeting with the President, according to the Treasury Department’s Inspector General’s Report, IRS employees — the same employees who belong to the NTEU — set to work in earnest targeting the Tea Party and conservative groups around America. The IG report wrote it up this way: Read more.........
(4) Rob Schilling: Spiritual Warfare: Democrat Hellhounds descent on EW Jackson - Bearing Drift - For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
EW Jackson, the Virginia GOP’s 2013 nominee for Lieutenant Governor, is under siege from the demonic hellhounds of the left.
An unabashed Christian and a fiery orator, Jackson took the GOP Convention by storm, Saturday, with a speech so powerful that it instantly converted hundreds, if not thousands of undecided and pre-decided convention attendees.
Defying all odds and embarrassing most pundits, EW Jackson won—handily, decisively, and in spite of opponents’ desperate and dirty campaign trickery.
Immediately upon victory, though, Jackson became the target of vicious Progressive disdain.
Democrat Senator Ralph Northam, himself a 2013 candidate for Lieutenant Governor, characterized the pro-life Jackson as having an “extreme social agenda” and damned him for being a threat to “women’s health.”
Yet, Northam—an MD who practices pediatric neurology at Norfolk’s Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters—is a reliable vote for the pro-death, Planned Parenthood lobby and repeatedly uses the Orwellian “women’s reproductive rights” as a euphemism for infanticide. Read more.........
(5) Shaun Kennedy - The Richmond Screwjob: How Corey Stewart (Almost) Sold His Endorsement for $85,000 - Bearing Drift - I can’t keep this one quiet anymore.
There’s a lot of chatter about the supposed false endorsements of Snyder by PWC Chairman Corey Stewart and AG nominee Mark Obenshain.
Truth is, Corey Stewart really did endorse Pete Snyder — that is confirmed by multiple sources in and around the campaign (including former Stewart staffers).
Folks have to ask themselves why a Snyder campaign that had been flawless up to that point would have made such a critical error. The answer is twofold:
(1) Stewart falsely announced the endorsement of Martha Boneta, hero of the Boneta Bill after Delegate Scott Lingamfelter announced his endorsement of Snyder. It was simply not true… and Martha was on the floor of the convention wearing a Pete ’13 shirt and having a great time.
Sore feelings, it would seem…
(2) After Stewart had given Snyder’s team the endorsement, a funny thing happened. Patrick Lee (check your cell phones) marched up to the Snyder press box and made an additional demand… of $85,000 cash to cover Corey Stewart’s campaign expenses.
Snyder staffers were baffled. Hadn’t Corey Stewart already given his word? Patrick Lee repeated the demand, saying that Stewart staff had not been paid up and so forth.
Snyder staffers did the right thing — they said the endorsement was already given and they expected Stewart to keep their word.
What happened next could only be described as the “Richmond Screwjob” as Patrick Lee ran from the Snyder box shouting “No deal! Stewart did *not* endorse Snyder!!”
…guess who was watching from the stage? Corey Stewart… who then began a vigorous argument with RPV chairman Pat Mullins demanding to be able to take the stage. Midway through that argument, Stewart eyeballed Jackson who was congratulating his delegates.
The fist went into the air. Jackson was endorsed by Stewart instead. Read more......
