"The most effectual means of preventing [the perversion of power into tyranny] are to illuminate, as far as practicable, the minds of the people at large, and more especially to give them knowledge of those facts which history exhibits, that ... they may be enabled to know ambition under all its shapes, and prompt to exert their natural powers to defeat its purposes." --Thomas Jefferson, A Bill for the More General Diffusion of Knowledge, 1779
Rove: IRS Rule Change Aimed at Gagging Conservatives
Published by Dr. Jake Baker
By Wanda Carruthers
Republican political strategist Karl Rove accused the Obama administration of "hypocrisy" Wednesday, charging that a proposed change in IRS rules regarding nonprofit organizations is aimed at gagging conservative activists.
"This is clearly an attempt by the administration to discourage conservative groups," the former deputy chief of staff to President George W. Bush said on "Fox & Friends." Read More: Click Here
"I think it's hypocrisy," he said.

WASHINGTON TIMES Sunday, October 13, 2013 - Metro News
Senators Mike Lee - Utah and Ted Cruz - Texas as well as Sarah Palin were among the crowd that chanted “Tear down these walls” and sang patriotic songs according to local news coverage from WTOP, as the barriers were removed.
TRUCKERS HEADED FOR WASHINGTON DC TO SUPPORT & DEFEND OUR CONSTITUTION
SHARE & MAKE VIRAL: Truckers all across America are heading TODAY for Washington DC to protest governments overstepping their authority and in support of our Constitution. Let's show support for them for the next 3 days by changing our profile pictures.
They are going to protect our religious freedoms and other rights that our Founding Fathers fought and died for!
Just before the weekend, the National Park Service informed charter boat captains in Florida that the Florida Bay was “closed” due to the shutdown. Until government funding is restored, the fishing boats are prohibited from taking anglers into 1,100 square-miles of open ocean. Fishing is also prohibited at Biscayne National Park during the shutdown.
Ed Note: This is the time for massive Civil Disobedience. Obama megalomaniacal tyrant. What in the blazes makes him think he has the right to close the ocean. He has literally gone insane. It is time to for the congress to take action.
The rest of that quote from our Founding Father, Samuel Adams, reads:
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom,go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.
May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
The pundits are all telling us that Ted Cruz’s quasi-filibusterer has had no impact, it doesn’t mean anything and that it’s mere grandstanding. Hogwash!
PROVIDENT FILMS AND NCM FATHOM EVENTSANNOUNCE UNSTOPPABLE: A LIVE EVENT WITH KIRK CAMERON on September 24, 2013
Kirk Cameron’s Most Personal Project Creates National News Headlines from Social Media Controversy
Nashville, TN: - August 6, 2013 – Actor/producer KIRK CAMERON has made national news headlines as he announced the release date for his most personal project to date regarding his faith in God. Cameron has invited audiences nationwide to join him on Tuesday, September 24, 2013, for his one-night live event of UNSTOPPABLE to nearly 700 theaters nationwide. (www.unstoppablethemovie.com).
UNSTOPPABLEcreated a social media firestorm when both Facebook and YouTube prohibited audience’s access to the film’s trailer, labeling it as “unsafe” and “abusive.” Over half a million of Cameron’s fans rallied to protest the blocking of the web site, and after several days, both social media sites allowed access. Followers of Cameron’s continue to rally online support, interacting at an incredible rate on his nearly 700,000-strong Facebook page.
UNSTOPPABLE is an artistic and compelling documentary that takes audiences on a journey to the beginning of creation, and chronicles events that offer a deeper meaning of the role that pain and suffering have in our lives. UNSTOPPABLE will prompt audiences to consider their personal views on faith, and encourage conversation starters about God, suffering, and hope.
Cameron, who has been scrutinized by liberal audiences for standing firm on his Christian views of faith, family, and morality, experienced record-breaking success for his 2012 one-night theatrical event Monumental.
“It’s easy to celebrate your faith when things seem to be going well in your life. But when we encounter tragedy or adversity in our lives, we often question ‘Where is God in all of this?’ We wrestle with our hearts and minds to understand the reasoning,” says Cameron. “In UNSTOPPABLE, I take you on a personal voyage into the depths of my faith, based on something that happened in my life. We discover not only is there an answer to this pivotal question, there is great hope in it as well!”
UNSTOPPABLE will be broadcast to nearly 700 cinemas nationwide from The Vines Center at Liberty University—the largest Evangelical Christian university in the world—in Lynchburg, Va., on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 8:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. CT and tape delayed at 7:00 p.m. MT / 8:00 p.m. PT/AK/HI. Tickets and theatre locations are available online at: www.unstoppablethemovie.com.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said President Barack Obama’s landmark health care law is a step toward an eventual all-out single-payer system where the government pays for health care costs instead of private insurers, The Las Vegas Sun reported:
Reid said he thinks the country has to “work our way past” insurance-based health care during a Friday night appearance on Vegas PBS’ program “Nevada Week in Review.”
“What we’ve done with Obamacare is have a step in the right direction, but we’re far from having something that’s going to work forever,” Reid said. Read More

Rev. Majed El Shafie declared on TheBlaze TV Friday that “the Arab Spring is a lie” that has turned into a “cold deadly winter,” especially for minorities. He also criticized the U.S. for continually arming radicals in the Middle East, only to be attacked by them later.
The native Egyptian is intimately familiar with the subject, having been tortured and sentenced to death after converting to Christianity at the age of 18. He described how he stole a jet ski and fled to Israel, and how he has since begun the human rights group “One Free World International” that now has 28 branches around the world.
“And that was under the Mubarak regime,” Erick Stakelbeck, author of The Brotherhood: America’s Next Great Enemy, pointed out. “I can’t imagine how it would be under the Muslim Brotherhood!” Read More

GPS flaw could let terrorists hijack ships and planes.
The world’s GPS system is vulnerable to hackers or terrorists who could use it to hijack ships — even commercial airliners, according to a frightening new study that exposes a huge potential h*** in national security.
Using a laptop, a small antenna and an electronic GPS “spoofer” built for $3,000, GPS expert Todd Humphreys and his team at the University of Texastook control of the sophisticated navigation system aboard an $80 million, 210-foot super-yacht in the Mediterranean Sea.
“We injected our spoofing signals into its GPS antennas and we’re basically able to control its navigation system with our spoofing signals,” Humphreys told Fox News. Read More
Al Qaeda Prison Break Increases Terrorist Threat to Region – Senior al Qaeda leaders among 500 prisoners set loose in Iraq
BY: Bill Gertz
Al Qaeda claimed credit this week for a sophisticated attack on two Iraqi prisons, including the notorious Abu Ghraib prison, that freed 500 prisoners including numerous al Qaeda leaders and members considered by U.S. officials to be dangerous terrorists.
The prison break is expected to sharply increase the regional and possiblyglobal threat posed by al Qaeda terrorism. It also highlighted the U.S. government’s failure to fully stabilize and secure Iraq after the 2003 U.S. military intervention and pullout of troops in 2011, according to officials and analysts.

Groups Opposed to Chicago School Closures Seek U.N. Intervention, Claim Human Rights Violations
Protesters react to plan to close dozens of city schools at a rally in the Capitol rotunda in Springfield, Ill.,
– Advocacy groups opposing the planned shutdown of 49 schools in Chicago are turning to the United Nations for help, urging U.N. officials to investigate and take steps to prevent human rights abuses which, they say, will result from the closures. In the latest in a number of appeals by U.S. civic organizations to the world body, the Midwest Coalition for Human Rights this week submitted a letter to the U.N. human rights apparatus in Geneva, asking that it “investigate and take preventative measures to address the potential domestic andinternational human rights violations that may result from these school closings.” Read More
Are media buying into or selling ‘phony scandal’ claim?
Conservative leaders allege the media are trying to ignore the once high-profile scandals overshadowing the Obama administration, as President Obama and his aides aggressively push the claim that these controversies are “phony.”
The “phony scandal” line was the unofficial talking point of the week in Washington. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney made it his fallback retort from the podium — when asked about the president’s new wave of speeches on the economy, Carney explained Obama was trying to refocus Washington away from “fake” controversies.

Not a ‘Phony’ Scandal: Never-Before-Seen Footage of Former Navy SEAL Glen Doherty Puts a Face on Slain Benghazi Hero
Never-before-seen footage of slain former Navy SEAL Glen Doherty has been released in an effort to put a face on one of the victims of the deadly Benghazi terror attack. While the White House has recently started accusing its political opponents of focusing on “phony” scandals to distract from the real issues, the video makes it clear that the Benghazi scandal is certainly anything but “phony.”
Benghazi is arguably the biggest scandal facing the Obama administration as four Americans were killed, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, State Department employee Sean Smith and former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods.
It’s been more than 10 months since the deadly attack occurred at the U.S. compound in Libya, yet there are still questions that remain unanswered.
The more time that passes, the easier it is for the victims to just become names of murder victims, Greta Van Susteren explained. Read More Gay Military Forcing Out Vets – Air Force, facing fighter pilot shortage, offers retention bonuses of up to $225,000
By Jennifer GriffinThe Air Force estimates that without a serious recruiting effort, it will be short 700 fighter pilots eight years from now — so it is offering retention bonuses of up to $225,000 to stay in the service for an additional nine years.

You can thank the Electronic Privacy Information Center for forcing the Department of Homeland Security to release its list of “keywords” that are used to by its agents to monitor you on Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites.
The list, including phrases, reveals which words you probably want to avoid or else risk being flagged and eyeballed as a possible terrorist or someone who is otherwise posing threats to the United States. Words included such innocuous terms as: “Militia,” “exercise,” “cops,” “national security” and “facility.” Interestingly and of note, “jihad” was not included, nor were the words “Middle East,” “Arab,” “Muslim,” “terrorist” or “pressure cooker.” Perhaps those are on a different DHS red flag list?

Rep. Tom Graves R-Ga., asked, “Has anyone asked who ordered” the targeting of conservative groups by the IRS?
Treasury Department Inspector Gen. J. Russell George replied, “No one would acknowledge”who gave the orders.
Graves then asked new Acting IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel if he would find out.
“We will uncover every fact.” Werfel replied.
“No matter how far up the chain?”
“Yes,” Werfel said.
Appearing before a House Appropriations subcommittee Monday, George stopped short of categorically denying the political review of tax-exempt applications was limited to career appointees within IRS, suggesting the inspector general’s investigation was not yet complete and political influence exerted by the White House could not be ruled out.

If you’ve done nothing wrong, police and other law enforcement don’t worry you, right?
They should, according to an analysis today of a U.S. Supreme Court decision that said police can take a DNA sample after an arrest to see if it matches any samples from unresolved crimes in a database.
The concern is that if taking DNA samples from those who are not convicted is justified, it also would be permitted to take DNA samples from anyone who flies on an airplane, applies for a driver’s license or attends a public school, according to John Whitehead, a constitutional expert with the Rutherford Institute.

FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe says the IRS scandal is twice as bad as Watergate because of the breathtaking extent the agency was used to target conservative organizations filing for tax-exempt status as well as their donors.
“Watergate was an example of abuse of power by a few very powerful people, including the chief executive and the specific targeting of a few specific enemies,” Kibbe told WND. “In this case, you have an institution-wide bias, a widely known understanding that the IRS was targeting people based on their politics and their political philosophy. It was known for several years and yet it continued and it continued, and so you have one of the most powerful agencies of the federal government, as policy, going after the citizens, the mom-and-pop community leaders. They weren’t powerful. They weren’t in a position to fight back. It was a widely known thing among tea partiers for years, and now the rest of America is finding out about it.” Read More Obama birth-certificate doubts head to Capitol – 'Sheriff Arpaio wants this in Congress. That's where we intend to take it'
Audible gasps, shock, outrage and support for a congressional investigation were the responses by law-enforcement officers, elected officials and attorneys to a presentation by Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse of evidence that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is fraudulent.
At the same time the Internal Revenue Service delayed or denied requests for tax-exempt status from hundreds of conservative non-profit groups, it was quietly restoring the tax-exempt status of an Islamist front group accused of collaborating with terrorists.
Last year, the politicized agency reinstated the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations’ tax-exempt status despite years of delinquent tax filings. CAIR officials had met with officials inside the White House before the decision was made.
Though Democrat-connected CAIR did not officially endorse Obama, many of its staffers helped turn out the Muslim vote for his re-election. CAIR boasted that its own polling showed more than 85 percent of Muslim-Americans voted for Obama.
Favorable views of the tea party are on the rise in the wake of the Internal Revenue Service scandal, in which the agency targeted conservative groups applying for nonprofit tax exempt service, according to a new poll.
The latest survey by Rasmussen Reports found that 44 percent of likely voters have a favorable opinion of the tea party, up 14 percentage points from January.
It is still down, however, from a high of 51 percent in April 2009, when the movement first rose up to protest President Barack Obama's spending policies. Read More
New Benghazi whistleblowers are prepared to reveal shocking details about the Sept. 11 terror attack, including why U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens was in Libya to begin with, two former U.S. diplomats reportedly told PJ Media on Monday.
Tea party groups' allegations that the IRS has long been targeting them for their political beliefs were recently confirmed by an apology from the IRS. The scandal gained traction as congressional leaders began efforts to hold the IRS accountable and understand the depths of the federal government’s politically-motivated abuses of power.
Yet given the history of such abuses, the problem may extend further than the IRS, and require a "government-wide" probe across several agencies, as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has suggested. Read More
Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock during the House Ways and Means Committee hearing on the IRS scandal on Friday made a shocking claim: the IRS once asked an Iowa-based pro-life group to reveal the content of their prayers.
The last scandal dampening rods just failed, and the reactor core at the Internal Revenue service may be about to blow. From Healthcare IT News:
The Internal Revenue Service is now facing a class action lawsuit over allegations that it improperly accessed and stole the health records of some 10 million Americans, including medical records of all California state judges. Read More
