IRS Targeted Adoptive Parents For Audits

“[T]he IRS has harassed a number of pro-life groups, including at least one alleged demand that a pro-life group not picket Planned Parenthood,” writes David French for National Review. But even as the IRS was defending pro-abortion groups, they were targeting families who adopted children for audits. “In 2012, the IRS requested additional information from

Anti-Shirvani "Whistle Blower" Was Involved In Serious Exposure Of University System Data

The North Dakota University System data exposure report below details an incident in which the private information of students and university system employees was exposed, but apparently not reported to them as it wasn’t specifically required by law. NDUS “whistle blower” Linda Baeza Porter was responsible for the breach according to the report. Porter was

Obama's Justice Department Spied On Fox News Reporter In 2010

In 2009 the Obama administration was at war with Fox News, up to and including trying to exclude the top-of-the-ratings cable network from pool reports, something that only ended with other members of the White House press corps objected. But now it comes to light that in 2010, while investigating leaks at the State Department,

Correction: Senate Attendance Numbers Inaccurate

At the end of the legislative session we published attendance records for legislators in the House and the Senate. Since there is no central repository for attendance numbers, no government record which shows a votes missed total for each legislator, we had to compile that information from the daily House and Senate journals. It was

From The Left: Key to Obama Surviving Scandals, Let Republicans Be Republicans

It has not been a particularly good week for our President. For the past six years or so, the President and his supporters have been under constant siege from the right.

IRS Claims Leak Of Conservative Group Tax Info To Left-Wing Group Was "Inadvertant"

At this point, why is the IRS even bothering to deny this stuff? The Internal Revenue Service claims the disclosure of conservative groups’ confidential information to investigative journalism outfit ProPublica was “inadvertent and unintentional.” After the IRS admitted to deliberately targeting conservative organizations that applied for tax-exempt status, ProPublica reported it had received nine still-pending

Holder: Searching Reporter Phone Calls Is So Routine I Can't Remember How Many Times It Has Happened

So what he’s saying is the recently-divulged search of phone calls placed by AP reporters wasn’t the only instance. In fact, what he seems to be saying is that this sort of thing is so routine he can’t remember how many times it has happened. As his Justice Department faces bipartisan outrage for searching phone

The IRS Hassled Conservative Groups Even As Liberal Groups Got A Pass

The standard the IRS began applying to conservative groups in 2010 was bad enough. Demands for information about donors, and even what the group’s members were reading, are downright chilling. But the most damning aspect of this entire debacle is that liberal groups were given a pass on the scrutiny conservative groups were receiving. Yesterday,

"If you electrocute an eagle, that is bad, but if you chop it to pieces, that is OK"

Wind farms killing endangered condors in California, and eagles in Wyoming, is ok because they’re green energy according to the Obama administration. But if those same birds were killed at a coal mine or an oil site? Well that’s different: CONVERSE COUNTY, Wyo. — Wind farms in this corner of Wyoming have killed more than

IG Report Blames "Ineffective Management" For IRS Targeting Conservatives

You can read the full report below, but the blame for the IRS targeting conservative groups goes to “ineffective management” according to the Inspector General. Which is a little hard to believe given some of the other facts in the report. Such as this list of inappropriate questions sent to the groups: These sort of
