Unbelievable: Feds Complicit In Illegal Border Smuggling Tunnel

  Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com. Gee, I wonder if Obama’s DHS is turning a blind eye to the drug smugglers so that they can earn a spot on the “Shroom Gang”?   Last week, Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ) joined Sean to inform him of a sophisticated illegal smuggling tunnel built at the Arizona-Mexico border. According to Border Patrol agent, Chris Cabrera, the agency was aware of the tunnel (and wanted to patrol it), but were told not to by their superiors. Below is Rep. Salmon’s letter to DHS secretary Jeh Johnson which details his concerns about the tunnel: Secretary Johnson, Recently, Arizona’s […]

SMOKING GUN: New Documents Tie Obama And Senate Democrats Directly To The IRS Scandal

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Why can’t the leadership in the GOP be more like Judicial Watch/ Thanks once again to Judicial Watch (and no thanks once again to the feckless boobs in the Republican leadership), conservative pundit Wayne Root just connected the dots that link Senate Democrats and the White House directly to the IRS scandal. The entire article is worth reading, but the short version is as follows: Root was targeted for audit in 2011, disputed the findings in Tax Court, and won in 2012. Only five days later, Root was again targeted for a separate […]

GOP Rep Introduces Bill To Gut EPA

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and Timothy Cama at The Hill. It may pass, but it’ll never get signed by Obama. A House Republican wants to cut 13 programs at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), including all of its grants and its ability to regulate ground-level ozone and carbon dioxide. Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas) introduced a bill, the Wasteful EPA Programs Elimination Act, which he said is a money-saving measure, citing a Heritage Foundation forecast that it would save $7.5 billion over 10 years. “As a fiscal conservative, I believe Washington should be respectful of taxpayers’ dollars and live […]

100 Years Of The Income Tax At A Glance

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Courtesy of Americans for Tax Reform comes this visceral evidence of government’s endless growth; in good times and bad it grows. It never shrinks. Like a bad rash. Or a tumor.   Which reminds me of the question that Democrats have refused to answer for well over 100 years: how do we know when the government has done growing? What is their endgame? When will we know their massive government has reached its Utopian completion? Cue the crickets. . . .

Shaneen Denise Allen Granted Pardon by Governor Chris Christie

Last summer, the CH 2.0 covered the story of Shaneen Denise Allen, who committed the unpardonable sin of being honest and hardworking, which caused her to run afoul of the New Jersey authorities.  Here is some coverage at that time from out contributor, Chris Wysocki. Shaneen Allen is no dangerous criminal. She’s a single mom working 2 jobs who’s already been robbed twice while traveling alone at night in Philadelphia. Her family suggested that she carry a gun for protection. She took a gun safety course, applied for and was granted a concealed carry permit, and bought a gun. Then […]

Organized Cheating Revealed: 11 Atlanta Area Teachers Found Guilty of Racketeering

In the public schools, it seems that that when the going gets tough, the tough cheat! ATLANTA — Eleven former Atlanta public school educators were convicted Wednesday of racketeering for their role in a wide-ranging conspiracy to inflate scores on students’ standardized tests. Only one teacher was acquitted of all charges. The 11 convicted represented teachers, testing coordinators and other administrators who were accused of participating in the conspiracy dating to 2005, motivated by pressure to meet federal and local standards to receive bonuses or keep their jobs in the Atlanta Public Schools district of about 50,000 students. … Only […]

You Might Be A Terrorist If…

Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com. Yawning, whistling, or clearing your throat… who knew? A confidential Transportation Security Administration (TSA) document gives officers suspicious things to look out for in travelers, according to a new report. The document lists “signs you might be a terrorist,” which include exaggerated yawning, excessive complaints about the screening process, excessive throat clearing, widely open staring eyes, wearing improper attire for location, whistling as the individual approaches the screening process, gazing down, exaggerated or repetitive grooming gestures, face pale from recent shaving of beard and rubbing or wringing of hands. “So, if it’s a 6 a.m. flight and […]

School Tells Second Grader: Shave Your Head Or Get Suspended

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. This is one of those cases of PC gone mad. I believe this school district and, in particular this principal will live to regret their actions. A second grader in McMinneville, Tennessee has been forced to shave his head after his principal said his “military” haircut wouldn’t be allowed in class. According to Adam Stinnet’s parents, the seven-year-old boy got a “high and tight” haircut to imitate his brother, a soldier in the Army who has served in Afghanistan. Just one day later, on March 9, the family received a letter from the principal saying the boy’s […]

The Grinch Who Stole Taxmas: Obama Axes Free Tax Prep Help For The Poor

  Hat/Tip to Cardigan at IOTWReport.com. But the Dems are for the poor, the little guy!!! That’s what the libs ALWAYS tell us…. Obama Kills Program That Helped Poor File Taxes, Sends $$ To Liberal Groups The Obama administration has quietly killed an IRS tax preparation program designed to help low-income and disadvantaged citizens, choosing instead to give millions of dollars to liberal groups for the same purpose. Without fanfare, the administration has closed down the free walk-in services at hundreds of taxpayer assistance centers around the country. Administration officials are now trying to steer the “face-to-face” help to volunteer community […]

Netflix: Hey, We Didn’t Want Net Neutrality To Apply To Us, Just All Those Other Guys

  Sorry Net Neutrality knuckleheads, don’t say we didn’t warn you. But now it’s too late to be complaining about how when the jackbooted thugs of the FCC take aim at the internet they’re gonna squash your hopes and dreams too. Exhibit A: Netflix! They got what they wanted, except they’ve decided they didn’t really want what they got. Netflix CFO David Wells, in comments at an industry conference, said the company’s preference was that broadband Internet service should not be regulated by the U.S. government as a telecommunications utility — appearing to backtrack on Netflix’s previous stance on the […]

If You’ve Ever Wondered What The Internet Looked Like In 1934, You’ll Love ObamaNet

Obama’s FCC really did it. They really voted to regulate the internet. They dusted off a 1934 law used to rein in Ma Bell and said those rules need to apply to your home broadband connection in 2015. Forward, into the past! Forget visions of “half fast” internet. Those days are gone now. Henceforth the internet will run at the speed of government. And the government will decide who can connect. The government will decide how you’ll connect. A bureaucrat will determine if your internet usage is in “the public interest.” And fine you if it isn’t. How many of […]

7 Reasons Net Neutrality Is a Threat to Your Freedom

    Hat/Tip to Nick Sanchez at Newsmax. Obama is bound and determined to heap the damage onto America as fast as he can before he is forced out of office on Jan 20, 2017. This time, he’s using the Democrat-controlled FCC to do his bidding. The FCC’s Democrat majority voted on Thursday to fix something that ain’t broken by approving new regulations for the Internet. Republicans are dissenting, darkly suggesting that the new rules in government hands are a threat. The commission’s chairman, Tom Wheeler, said the new rules will ensure net neutrality by barring Internet service providers like […]

How to Disarm an Armed Attacker

I saw this video recently via a friend on Facebook, and thought I might share it here.  It is always possible that you might be attacked by an armed criminal, especially in a democratically controlled anti-gun area.  So, here is the video. Of course, there are no guarantees, but this is better than having sudden onset inter-cranial lead poisoning.

Because Tom Wheeler Wasn’t Smarter Than Steve Case, Obama Will Tax And Destroy The Internet

    Today Barack Obama’s hand-picked FCC chairman laid out his rational for taxing and regulating the internet. It’s because AOL’s Steve Case ate his lunch back in the 80’s. I personally learned the importance of open networks the hard way. In the mid-1980s I was president of a startup, NABU: The Home Computer Network. My company was using new technology to deliver high-speed data to home computers over cable television lines. Across town Steve Case was starting what became AOL. NABU was delivering service at the then-blazing speed of 1.5 megabits per second—hundreds of times faster than Case’s company. […]

DHS to Police Departments: Support Amnesty, or Else!

It seems that DHS is telling local PD’s… That’s a nice police department you have there, be a shame is something were to happen about it. Gateway Pundit has the details… Sheriff Justin Smith from Larimer County Colorado posted this tonight on his Facebook page: I received a very interesting veiled threat letter from Jeh Johnson, the Secretary of Homeland Security addressed to all police chiefs and sheriffs around the country. His letter made it clear that if Congress didn’t send President Obama the DHS funding bill that he wanted (rubberstamping the president’s executive amnesty), local and state public safety […]

Victory For Consumers: FCC Rules No More Blocking Wi-Fi In Hotels

Sorry Marriott, you can’t block personal Wi-Fi hotspots. Because, freedom! On Tuesday, the Federal Communications Commission issued an “Enforcement Advisory” stating that blocking W-Fi in hotels is unequivocally “prohibited.” “Persons or businesses causing intentional interference to Wi-Fi hotspots are subject to enforcement action,” the FCC bluntly stated, referencing a dispute between Marriott and its customers who said the hotel chain had blocked their personal hotspots to to force them to pay for Marriott’s Wi-Fi services. “The Enforcement Bureau has seen a disturbing trend in which hotels and other commercial establishments block wireless consumers from using their own personal Wi-Fi hot […]

Merry Christmas And Happy New Year From The EPA

  The Grinches in the Obama administration’s Economy Pulverizing Agency (EPA) are spreading their own diabolical idea of Christmas cheer on our fragile economy by dumping 1200 new regulations on it with an estimated economic cost of $20 billion, which brings the EPA’s added regulatory burden for the year to over $200 billion. For the new year, they are already hard at work to drive up the cost of energy produced by fracking on federal lands. You can read the details here. With two more long years left, you can bet that President Obama, with the help of his pen […]

New Lois Lerner Emails Show Obama’s Justice Department Involved In IRS Targeting Scandal…

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and Robert W. Wood at Forbes. The hubris of Lois Lerner and Obama’s DOJ is surpassed only by the sheer narcissism of Barack Obama himself. The more digging done on this scandal, the closer it gets to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. As it is, the Department of Justice is basically “investigating” itself. Sadly, the 18 month investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative groups isn’t over, and it may be worse than anyone thought. A federal judge has broken loose more emails that the DOJ had surely hoped would never surface. The picture it reveals isn’t pretty. The […]
