In 2009, Hillary was busy pushing a red reset button with Russia, and Obama toured the world apologizing for the United States. I have no idea what he was apologizing for, we have set more people free than any people in history. Obama and Hillary were happy to jump on the Arab Spring band-wagon tossing long-time friends under the bus. Okay, in Libya’s case, it was a bad guy who suddenly discovered civility of a sort after 9/11. Last year, in Syria, this administration had no trouble backing radical jihadis, and some A-Q affiliated groups in the conflict there, a stance which may have contributed to the tragedy in Benghazi. A “Red Line” was crossed, but no one had proof who did the chemical crossing. Some guy named Vladimir Putin saved the day, when the Red Line suddenly became pink and dotted.

Turley flatly rejected the Obama administration’s reason for using more executive powers, which the president claims is a gridlocked Congress. “It is simply untrue that we’re living in very different or unprecedented times.

“This is not a different political time, and it shouldn’t be used as an excuse for extra-constitutional action,” Turley warned.
Progressives just hate it when TEA party folks wish to take advantage of a long-held existing tax code.
They apparently have no problem attempting to stifle speech that they don’t agree with, while they claim to support the First Amendment.

Why no outrage over 501(c)(5) status? This is the labor union loop-hole. Union dues are deductible, but union members have no say about what political contributions their dues are used for
501(c)(3)s are true charity non-profits, all contributions are tax-deductible, which is not true for 501(c)(4)s. So why is MediaMatters a 501(3)(c)?
