The State of the Union TAkes!

Here is the round-up:
(The Night of Broken Glass) Kristallnacht was unthinkable in 1930; is its descendant “progressive” radicalism unthinkable now?
It might be helpful to note that the author of this letter to the editor is a liberal, and a supporter of Al Gore and voted for Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown.
Since when does the EPA have the jurisdiction to re-interpret treaties?
I’m pretty sure that Dinesh is on an enemies list somewhere
the truth is becoming known about President Obama’s blatant use of the Internal Revenue Service to suppress the First Amendment political free speech rights of Tea Party, conservative and evangelical non-profits during the 2010, 2012 — and now — the 2014 campaigns.
It’s IRS targeting all over again, only this time by administration design and with the raw political goal…of putting “tea party groups out of business.”
Obama was outraged when he read about this in the newspaper, (right!) now he claims it’s a phony scandal.
Media Matters is a 501(c)3 non-profit, and contributions are deductible. Compare that to the IRS targets for 501(c)4 applicants, whose contributions are not tax-deductible
I can’t believe that this guy fancies himself a viable presidential candidate. It must be hereditary, his daddy Mario wanted to be President too. When I first heard this, I thought he must be “differently-abled”.
Benghazi and Syria Update:
Syria update: A report from the MIT confirms earlier reports that the Syrian government could not have launched the sarin poison-gas-laden rocket last August. Confirming my earlier suspicions that this was a false-flag attack.
The surprising thing here is that Senator Feinstein was committee Chair
Hillary’s biggest “regret”? She doesn’t regret a thing, Obama got re-elected, didn’t he?

The great insurance bail-out stop-loss provision is written into Obamacare
This is Senator Tom Coburn (R, OK), who is resigning to fight prostate cancer
and they wrote this monstrosity
gun-grabbers have discovered an end-around play
okay, stop with the happy pills and playing video games now, and read this!
over the past 100 years, real temps have fallen 1°C
our lawless POTUS
Our lawless POTUS, Act Two. We’ll hear about more up-coming lawlessness in the SOTU tonight.
It didn’t take long for Christie’s Democratic friends to pull out the knives over a bunch of road cones.
Stick a fork in him. He’s done.
the GOP has done nothing but antagonize conservatives, libertarians and Tea Party adherents. Establishment Republicans have spit in the faces of rank-and-file conservatives, since we elected them in the House in 2010.
Isn’t it time for some justice?
really? It doesn’t surprise me.
for the nerdiest amongst us who like to collect such things
“We are treating a number of the people who had the flu vaccine but they still got the flu,” the doctor said. “In fact, most of the patients we’re seeing were vaccinated.”
I seem to remember the BS of A stamping their blessings on gay Scoutmasters last year.
Cars update: Obama gave Fiat it’s initial Chrysler shares during the bailout/bankruptcy. Sweet!
