“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:
April 1-2, 2010: The new Acting Manager, Technical Unit, suggested the need for a Sensitive Case Report on the Tea Party cases. The Determinations Unit Program Manager Agreed.

When the voters passed Prop 204 in 2000, Arizona’s original Medicaid expansion was suppose to be paid for fully with tobacco money. In fact, the estimated costs and number of people on the program turned out to be four times greater (400%) than the estimates. We currently have about 1.3 million Arizonians on Medicaid (aka, AHCCCS), at a federal and state annual cost of about $8,000 per person and about one-half (1/2) of a Billion Dollars in costs to Arizona taxpayers.
Now Governor Brewer and the Democrats want to expand Obamacare Medicaid by another 400,000 people, which could cost Arizona hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars in just a few short years. Brewer has not asked the federal government if Arizona can keep our current Medicaid system in place unchanged, but has stated publically that we cannot.
Some facts about NOT doing the expensive Obamacare Medicaid expansion:
Our Congressmen, including Gosar and Schweikert, have stated that there is no federal money budgeted for the Obamacare Medicaid expansion
This is not an expansion of good healthcare, but it is an expansion of big government and higher financial profits for big healthcare companies, paid for with more borrowed federal debt (currently almost $17 Trillion) for our children and grandchildren to repay
There is no rush to implement the expansion, except for political reasons
Governor Brewer’s “circuit-breaker” to end the Obamacare Medicaid expansion (when the federal government stops funding it as promised) will not work; Arizona may be left holding the bill, and our state may become bankrupt if we are forced to pay for this expensive Obamacare expansion
The Supreme Court’s Obamacare ruling stated that the federal government cannot force Arizona to expand Medicare and that it cannot punish us if we choose not to expand; so if HHS refuses to allow us to keep our current Medicaid system, we can sue the federal government and we will win
Medicaid is a poor delivery of healthcare, and does not have enough doctors for the current 1.3 million patients, let alone 1.7 million
Medicaid only pays our doctors about 60 cents on the dollar, so there are not enough doctors willing to take the reduced rates, and those that do typically must rush patients through the system
A much better delivery of healthcare for our poor (with better health outcomes) and better financially for our doctors would be the Federal Exchange program, where patients would have federally-subsidized private insurance, instead of a government-run healthcare system
Please ask everyone you know to help the Arizona State House Republicans this week defeat the big government spending and the expensive ($2+ billion per year) Obamacare Medicaid expansion that was passed in the Senate budget last Thursday.
We have at least 6 (or more) House Republicans that may vote with the Democrats for the expansion, so we need all the grassroots efforts that we can get (including a rally of folks with signs at the Capitol in Phoenix) in order to influence and pressure those members to vote with our conservative Republican caucus.
Please contact Governor Brewer and all of the House Republicans and leadership, but especially put the pressure on House Representatives:
Contact info here.
Call their offices and send emails voicing your polite but steadfast opposition to big government expansion and spending and the expensive Obamacare Medicaid expansion.
This is truly an important, historic pivotal week for holding-back the Obama agenda here in Arizona, but we cannot do it without your help!!
Arizona State Representative Bob Thorpe, LD-6
Meeting & program: Tuesday 6-20-13 @ the Radisson 6:00 PM
Come to this special quarterly Member’s meeting to see a special video showing of the “Dangers of Smart Meters”. These digital smart meters are currently being installed by APS or have already been installed in all residential and commercial locations. Come to tonights meeting to view this special video presentation and learn for yourself the health hazards and risks associated with these devices. It is critical to understand the dangers not only to yourself but especially to children and the young people in our families. Once you understand these dangers you need to act to prevent the power companies from further use and to have existing meters removed and the previous older meters restored. In addition to the extreme health hazards these meters infringe on our personal privacy and liberties. Come and learn what the power companies don’t want you to know.
Please try to come and support or organization’s efforts to keep our members well informed.
Recently, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has come under attack for malicious treatment of certain U.S. citizens and groups by singling them out based upon their personal political preferences. At this time, it is still unclear where the direct orders came from to initiate such heinous activities, but what is crystal clear is that this type of activity is not new for the IRS.
The IRS has mastered the art of breaking their own laws, one case in particular; using banks to launder and then steal disabled veterans’ disability checks.
The Veterans Disability Act of 2010 is a Federal law which exempts VA disability from withholding of any sort. Actually, existing code USC, Title 38, §5301 already protected VA disability from withholding, but this provision was re-iterated and included in the newer legislation of 2010, because too many civil court judges were legislating from the bench and including veterans’ disability monies as earned income and granting it to ex-spouses (men and women) in divorce proceedings, at times, leaving disabled veterans without any safety net for self-care.
However, the IRS is still figuring out ways to get to a veteran’s disability money. How do I know? Recently, it happened to me.

On July 4, 2013 a fully armed and loaded march lead by a certain person in question, Adam Kokesh has been planned. One must first note this march is not sanctioned nor backed by The Oathkeepers, The Tea Party, The Republican Party, NRA, or any legitimate Constitutional Organization or party.
One MUST understand this action is undermining the hard work of all Patriots to safeguard our 2nd Amendment. In Kokesh’s own words, this is not an anti-gun law march; it is a march to challenge what he deems as an illegitimate government. Obama and his administration have finally been put on the defense, and stumbling about to deflect the public’s eyes upon their illegal actions. We do not need to provide them with an illegal march to bring the distractions they are praying for.
I wish to address certain questions concerning the organizer of the march as well as the legal truths of the matter and ramifications of anyone participating.

In 2012, the IRS says that it flagged groups with the words “Tea Party” or “Patriot” in their names for additional scrutiny. Bower’s group fit the ticket.
When Marion Bower decided to start her tea party organization in 2010, she didn’t know that it would take nearly two years for the Internal Revenue Service to approve her request for tax-exempt status.
The Ohio woman also did not expect that providing information about the books her group read would be part of the application process.
“I was trying to be very cordial, but they wanted copies of unbelievable things,” Bower told ABC News today. “They wanted to know what materials we had discussed at any of our book studies.”
She ultimately sent one of the books, “The Five Thousand Year Leap,” promoted frequently by Glenn Beck, to the IRS official handling her tax-exempt request in Cincinnati. She also sent a paperback copy of the Constitution.

Fortunately, the Swiss National Advisory Commission on Biomedical Ethics (NEK, President: Otfried Höffe) critically commented on the use of the ADHD drug Ritalin in its opinion of 22 November 2011 titled Human enhancement by means of pharmacological agents1: The consumption of pharmacological agents altered the child’s behavior without any contribution on his or her part.
That amounted to interference in the child’s freedom and personal rights, because pharmacological agents induced behavioral changes but failed to educate the child on how to achieve these behavioral changes independently. The child was thus deprived of an essential learning experience to act autonomously and emphatically which “considerably curtails children’s freedom and impairs their personality development”, the NEK criticized.
The alarmed critics of the Ritalin disaster are now getting support from an entirely different side. The German weekly Der Spiegel quoted in its cover story on 2 February 2012 the US American psychiatrist Leon Eisenberg, born in 1922 as the son of Russian Jewish immigrants, who was the “scientific father of ADHD” and who said at the age of 87, seven months before his death in his last interview:
“ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease”

Former Republican candidate for president, Alan Keyes, alleged during an interview that the recent IRS revelations were a front to keep the minds of the people off of the fact that Obama may be working with terrorist to initiate martial law. The recent move to destroy the Second Amendment may bear that out.
We already know that terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was shot up by Boston’s finest as he cowered in a boat without a weapon. Now we have confirmation that the cops shot up the wrong vehicle (but couldn’t shoot straight enough to hit the innocent citizens) the police officer wounded and nearly killed in the shootout with the Tsarnaev brothers wasn’t shot by the poorly-equipped terrorists, but was instead blasted by other poorly-trained cops:
1. Police fired nearly 300 rounds of ammunition within five to 10 minutes as they confronted the suspects — 100 more than initially reported. And that included one round that nearly killed Massachusetts Transit Police Officer Richard Donohue.
2. Police accidentally fired on an unoccupied black SUV during the mayhem. “In the chaos, an officer or trooper (or some combination of personnel) mistook it for one of the two suspect vehicles,”…
The family of a second-grader suspended from his school in Anne Arundel County for chewing his Pop-Tart-like pastry into the shape of a gun has lost a bid to have the episode expunged from the child’s record, according to the family’s attorney.[snip]
The second-grader, 7 at the time, was removed from class for two days in early March for chewing his pastry into a gun shape and aiming it at other students, an offense described as “classroom disruption.”
About the same time, children elsewhere were suspended for pointing fingers like guns and, in one case, talking about shooting a Hello Kitty “gun” that blows bubbles. In many cases, appeals were granted by school officials.
The child’s father, William “B.J.” Welch, said he had hoped that school officials might be more receptive. “I guess I expected more of a fair result,” he said Wednesday night. “I don’t view the punishment and the mark on my son’s record as a reasonable reaction to the situation that took place.”
Schools spokesman Bob Mosier said he could not confirm the meeting or address any of the statements from the family’s lawyer. “This is a matter between the school, a student, and his parents,” Mosier wrote in an e-mailed statement.

Making sense of all this…….there are two ways to cast a movie. You bring in professional actors and have them read, or you go out and hire “real people” for the parts.
The second way is sometimes used for the cameos.
That’s the case with the completely insane arrests, school suspensions, and general harassment leveled at kids and parents who “are guilty of” toy guns, fingers shaped like guns, pictures of guns, guns that make bubbles.
