The story about the IRS cracking down on the tea party isn’t exactly brand new, as the media and the GOP wants you to believe. Left wing biased Politico actually had a big article about Democrats demanding the IRS ‘crack down’ on the Tea Party as far back as March of 2012. The media of course didn’t report on this. Probably more disturbing, is the worthless GOP sat on their hands and let Democrats get away with political intimidation through the IRS. The GOP hacks like Karl Rove hates the tea party almost, if not more than Democrats and the media. From the Politico article in March of 2012:

Seven Democratic senators on Monday urged the IRS to crack down on groups that organize as nonprofits only to engage in politics — an effort targeted at conservative groups they believe are abusing the law.
“We urge the IRS to … prevent abuse of the tax code by political groups focused on federal election activities,” the senators wrote to IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman, promising legislation if the agency fails to act.
The seven Democrats who urged Shulman and the IRS to crack down on tea party groups aren’t exactly ‘moderates.’ The seven are far left Marxist radicals. The seven include Chuck Schumer of New York, Michael Bennet of Colorado, Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, Jeff Merkley of Oregon, Tom Udall of New Mexico, Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire and Al Franken of Minnesota. Not exactly known to be moderates. The GOP is complicit in this case.
Suddenly Obama deserves the benefit of the doubt on Benghazi? The man embroiled in the biggest White House scandal since Watergate deserves a benefit of the doubt? John McCain has lost it. He actually lost it years ago, but today was his swan song. Obama who has participated in the Benghazi cover up, then flew off the Las Vegas for a fund raiser the day after the attacks somehow deserves a benefit of the doubt? Do us all a favor John McCain. Please retire. At least don’t run again in 2016. Take your pudgy daughter with you when you go.
|RINO John McCain wants to give Obama benefit of the doubt on Benghazi|
22 Republicans voted with Marxist Senate Democrats to implement an Internet sales tax with a bill called the ‘Marketplace Fairness Act.’ S.743 was introduced by RINO Wyoming Sen. Michael Enzi on April 16, 2013. The vote was on an amendment to ‘restore States’ sovereign rights to enforce State and local sales and use tax laws, and for other purposes. The bill passed the Senate 69-27. The list includes your usual gang of RINOS. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins, John Thune, etc. The only surprises to me of the 22 Republicans who voted in favor of the Marketplace Fairness Act aka the Internet Sales tax were Deb Fischer and John Boozman. Rob Portman was also a bit of a surprise. The rest, not so much.

John McCain and Lindsey Graham want to assure all Americans that the Boston Bombers wouldn’t slow down the march to amnesty. Both McCain and Graham released a joint state declaring to the American people actually saying that the amnesty bill is a good idea after what the two Chechnyan terrorists did.
Four faux Republicans voted for the Manchin-Toomey gun control amendment. They included your usual RINO suspects: John McCain, Susan Collins and Mark Kirk. Pat Toomey, a newly discovered RINO obviously voted for his own bill. The bill was so toxic that other squishy RINOs voted against it like Lisa Murkowski, Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake and Kelly Ayotte.
Four Democrats also voted against the Manchin-Toomey amendment. Three of those Democrats have elections coming up in 2014. Another, Heidi Heitkamp got elected this past November, but comes from a very conservative state (North Dakota.)
Sen. Toomey on defeat of Manchn-Toomey amendment: “The Senate has spoken on the subject, and it’s time to move on.”

Toomey-Manchin deceptively named gun control bill – The Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act
The Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act
Wow, so not only is Pat Toomey sucking up to anti 2nd amendment Democrats like Obama rubber stamp Joe Manchin, but they are even deceptively named gun control bill called The Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act. This is yet another middle finger to those who support the Second Amendment.
The bill’s intro begins:
The Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection ActSens. Joe Manchin and Pat ToomeyBottom Line:
The Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Actwould require states and the federal government to send all necessary records oncriminals and the violently mentally ill to the National Instant Criminal BackgroundCheck System (NICS). The bill extends the existing background check system to gunshows and online sales
Toomey released this statement on his website bragging about The Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act
Pat Toomey caves – cuts deal on gun background checks
There’s one things you can always count on ‘Republicans’ like Pat Toomey. They always cave to the far left and anti-gun zealots. RINO Pat Toomey caved to the anti-gun zealots and cut a deal with Obama rubber stamp Joe Manchin on a gun background check deal. Toomey is being hailed by the left and media as the ‘gun control savior’ for caving and agreeing to background checks. He’s like the new John McCain for the left (and the right.) Gun Owners of America aren’t happy with Toomey:
See a Shrink, Lose your Guns. The anti-gun “ranters” have spent the last week telling us that Republican Senators can’t filibuster Harry Reid’s gun control bill; that they can’t cut off debate to a bill they haven’t seen yet. “Let the bill come up,” they say. “We need to see the bill” before Senators can vote against cloture to proceed to it.
Well, we’ve seen the Toomey/Manchin-Schumer sell-out, and it’s worse than the Feinstein gun ban, which will reportedly be tied to it and offered simultaneously in a Senate procedure known as an “amendment tree.”
Toomey and Manchin will claim that their bill only covers “gun show sales” and Internet sales. But if you’ve ever talked about your gun and /or let it be known you’d like to sell or buy a gun on the Internet, this language covers you. If you advertise your gun in the church bulletin and the bulletin is put on the Internet, you’re covered.
The only exemption is for sales that are sold exclusively by word of mouth. The increased number of background checks would likely exacerbate the system breakdowns (inherent to NICS) which have shut down gun shows over and over again. It would mean that Americans who were illegally denied firearms because their names were similar to other people’s would effectively be barred from owning a gun. (We would never tolerate such delays for voting rights or other freedoms that we are guaranteed.)
They are also calling for urgent action on Pat Toomey:
Urgent action required. It is urgent that every gun owner call their Senators today and demand that they oppose the “See a Shrink, Lose your Guns” sell-out bill that is being authored by Senators Pat Toomey (R) and Joe Manchin (D) – but which also has Chuck Schumer’s fingerprints all over it. Call immediately at 202-224-3121.
Even though I’m obviously a conservative with libertarian leanings, I’m registered as an independent, not a Republican in my state. Why? I can go over thousands of reasons why I’m not a registered Republican, but here’s a real whopper. RNC ‘Chairman’ Reince Priebus says Mike Huckabee should be ‘a model’ for the GOP. Yes, that Mike Huckabee who let Maurice Clemmons go free as governor of Arkansas who would later go on to kill four people in the state of Washington. The same Huckabee who activeley campaigned for David Dewhurst in Texas in the Senate race with Ted Cruz.
What do Bill Kristol, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Karl Rove and other old, stale RINO hacks all have in common? They fear Rand Paul and the new generation of libertarian-conservatives or constitutional-conservative. Bill Kristol went on America Live with Megyn Kelly to whine about how ‘dangerous’ the ‘Neo-Isolationist’ Rand Paul is. Kristol also declared that Paul has no political future or something.
This is the why the current Republican party, sans a few are nothing more than just Democrat Lite. Weeper Boehner was interviewed on ABC’s ‘This Week’ and told Martha Raddatz that he agrees with Obama and the Democrats that the nearly $17 trillion national debt isn’t an ‘immediate crisis.’ Most of the time in the interview was wasted discussing Rob Portman and his flip-flop on gay marriage, which when compared to issues like the debt I really don’t care about.
Too late! Moss covered RINO John McCain apologizes to Rand Paul and Ted Cruz for calling them ‘wacko-birds’ (Video)
I don’t know why Fox News continues to give this washed up moss covered RINO John McCain a platform. He gets enough air time on the leftist Sunday news shows on ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN. Anyway, the old codger McCain finally apologized (although not directly to their faces) for calling Rand Paul and Ted Cruz ‘wacko-birds.’ Seems ole McCain is backing off a bit on his bashing of ‘those damn libertarian kids.’
Lets take a trip down memory lane back into the late ’80s and early 1990s when John McCain was a part of the Keating Five. This was was a group five United States Senators accused of corruption in 1989. Four of them where Democrats. The other was John McCain. From Wikipedia:
The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of corruption in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the larger Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The five senators – Alan Cranston (Democrat of California), Dennis DeConcini (Democrat of Arizona), John Glenn (Democrat of Ohio), John McCain (Republican of Arizona), and Donald W. Riegle, Jr. (Democrat of Michigan) – were accused of improperly intervening in 1987 on behalf of Charles H. Keating, Jr., Chairman of the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association, which was the target of a regulatory investigation by the Federal Home Loan Bank Board (FHLBB). The FHLBB subsequently backed off taking action against Lincoln.
Lincoln Savings and Loan collapsed in 1989, at a cost of over $3 billion to the federal government. Some 23,000 Lincoln bondholders were defrauded and many investors lost their life savings. The substantial political contributions Keating had made to each of the senators, totaling $1.3 million, attracted considerable public and media attention. After a lengthy investigation, the Senate Ethics Committee determined in 1991 that Cranston, DeConcini, and Riegle had substantially and improperly interfered with the FHLBB’s investigation of Lincoln Savings, with Cranston receiving a formal reprimand. Senators Glenn and McCain were cleared of having acted improperly but were criticized for having exercised “poor judgment”.
The crusty old codger just wouldn’t stop his whining about Rand Paul. For some reason, McCain took his clown show and crybaby ranting to Piers Morgan to whine about Rand Paul. Thankfully, no one saw it since it was not only on CNN, but also on Piers Morgan.
“Well, you know, I am always intrigued by the fact that when I disagree with my own party leadership, my own president — like saying that Donald Rumsfeld ought to resign, [or] we need to do the surge — then I’m a brave maverick,” McCain said. “When I’m taking on others, then he’s just an angry old man.”
