Did the Obama administration exploit the IRS to tie-up Republican groups to ensure his re-election?

Just how accurate is President Obama’s claim that there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the IRS targeting scandal ? The chart’s most startling figure shows how of the 298 groups whose applications for tax exempt status were delayed, a whopping 83% were right-leaning organizations.

The other revelations – conservative groups having to answer more than 3 times as many questions as liberal groups and being approved for non-profit status 45% of the time versus 70% of the time for liberal groups – buoy the position that the IRS did in fact target conservative groups.

The IRS' stalling of the applications has cost some groups thousands in donations and grants, while other groups have not been able to survive. A communications director for a Texas-based conservative group told The Christian Post earlier that the IRS's stalling cost his group $80,000 in donations and grants. (Juan Leon in IJReview)

Obama's claims of security along "The Border States of America" contradicted by documentary depicting Administration's permitting infiltration of crime, terrorism

Documentary reveals the perils of US administration's negligence, amnesty policies

For the past six years, the Obama Administration has invited and encouraged the wretched humanitarian crisis we now find on the Republic’s southern border. The president declared – in brazen violation of statutory and Constitutional law – that the government would no longer deport unaccompanied minor illegal immigrants. He also made clear that following this year’s midterm elections, he would take executive action to grant amnesty to millions of illegals.

The Border States of America takes viewers from the Rio Grande Valley to towns across America, telling the story of how criminal ‘coyotes’ and drug cartels are profiting from Obama’s policies, risking the lives of American citizens and putting new economic strains on our schools, hospitals and economy.

"The Border States of America" Trailer


This is why Tea Party Patriots (TPP) produced The Border States of America.  Hosted by Nick Searcy , star of FX’s hit series,"Justified," this one-hour documentary focuses attention on the border crisis in a way the mainstream media refuse to do. You won’t see a more important film this year, and like all of our great ideas, this one came from the grass
roots.
Mark Hager, a college professor and North Carolina TPP State Coordinator, was all too aware of the border crisis before it briefly held the national media’s attention. Seeing an educational opportunity, Mark reached out to contacts he’d established in founding the American Security Coalition, a network of Southern border sheriffs and grassroots activists throughout the country, and urged TPP to make the documentary. With TPP support, The Border States of America was born.
TPP was thrilled and honored to have a conservative celebrity of Nick Searcy’s stature hosting The Border States of America. Nick would be the first to tell you, though, that the stars of this film are the border sheriffs. “At the end of the day, we get the first phone call,” says Val Verde County, Texas Sheriff Joe Martinez. “They don’t call the FBI or the National Park Service. They call the sheriff’s office.”
National Border Patrol Council V.P., Chris Cabrera remarks on the ethical and practical problems with Obama administration's border patrol support and illegal immigration policies. 


Before Ebola and ISIS displaced the border crisis in the news cycle, there was talk of putting “troops on the border.” There are troops there already; they’re called border sheriffs, and they’re shamefully undermanned and unsupported. And if anything, the current threat of a pandemic and radical terrorism should refocus our attention on this glaring threat to our national security.
All along the border, deputy sheriffs and Border Patrol agents are responsible for hundreds of square miles per man. Theirs is a noble cause, and they serve with pride. “We’ve got limited resources and limited personnel, but we’re not gonna put up any excuses,” says Capt. Manion Long, of the Doña Ana County, N.M. Sheriff’s Office. “We’re gonna do what it is that we do.”
(DemoCast filmed the Hollywood premiere night, panel discussion with filmmaker Luke Livingston , Calif. Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, Tea Party Patriots' Jeannie Beth Martin, Prof. Mark Hager, and cast-members Nick Searcy, and Border Patrol Agent Chris Cabrera).


These first responders have too much at stake to openly call out the federal government that has forsaken them. When you watch The Border States of America, though, you’ll want to do it for them.

Nine other worshippers have been injured, including five who are critically wounded. The attack took place at the Kehilat Yaakov synagogue located in a religious study hall in the Har Nof neighbourhood in west Jerusalem.
Cousins, Uday and Ghassan Abu Jamal, members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terror group, unleashed an attack on worshippers, armed with guns and knives, shouting 'Allahu Akbar', The Times of Israel  reported, citing witnesses. Two police officers then shot down the militants in an exchange of fire.
"We are viewing this as a terrorist attack," police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld was quoted saying by The Jerusalem Post. The incident has added to rising tensions as several attacks have been reported in Israel in the last few weeks.

Head of the 'Torat Moshe' Kollel (academy for advanced Torah study), Rabbi Moshe Twersky has been named as one of the four who was killed in this morning's terror attack at the Kehillat Bnai Torah Yeshiva Synagogue in Jerusalem's Har Nof neighborhood. The rabbi's funeral will take place at 2:00 p.m., starting from the Beit HaTalmud Yeshiva to the Har Hamenuhot cemetery.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu responded to this morning's terror attack in Jerusalem's Har Nof neighborhood saying, "This morning's murderous attack is a direct incitement at the hands of Hamas and (Mahmoud) Abbas, an incitement which has been continuously and irresponsibly ignored by the international community."

Netanyahu, who is due to enter a consultation on the security situation this afternoon, added, "We will respond harshly to the brutal murder of Jews who came to pray and were killed by vile murderers". (Arutz Sheva) 

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu) responded to this morning's Jerusalem terror attack, blaming incitement by Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas for the deadliest attack in the capital in years.

Egyptian President Abdel al-Sisi at U.N. denounces Islamism and its enablers; includes Palestine

Egyptian Pres. Abdel Sisi addresses U.N. General Assembly
Egypt’s President Sisi Addresses the United Nations by Mohamed Khairat in Egyptian Streets| September 25, 2014

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi addressed the United Nations General Assembly’s 69th Session, stressing Egypt’s commitment to tackling the “plague” of terrorism while hundreds of supporters stood outside the United Nations in New York.

Upon being called to the podium, the Egyptian President was received with a loud applause from delegates, including world heads of state, of the General Assembly. The applause visibly pleased President Sisi, who immediately acknowledged it by smiling and putting his hands together in a sign of gratitude.




‘A New Egypt’

Minutes after commencing, the President was met with another applause after declaring the intentions of Egyptians to build a “New Egypt.”

“Our aim is to build a new Egypt,” said the President before being interrupted by the clapping of the hall.

A state that respects the rights and freedoms, honours its duties, and ensures the co-existence of its citizens without exclusion or discrimination. A state that respects and enforces the rule of law, guarantees freedom of opinion for all and ensures freedom of belief and worship to its people. A state that is determined to achieve growth, prosperity, and a promising future that meets the aspirations of its people,” declared the President after silence had returned to the General Assembly.

To attain this promise, the President stressed that the State should respect and enforce the rule of law, guarantee freedom of speech and religion, and work towards the growth and prosperity of the country.

At the start of his speech, President Sisi had addressed criticism of Egypt’s road map since the ouster of deposed President Mohammed Morsi.

The President said Egyptians had made history in the past two years by first revolting against corruption and despotism to claim their right to freedom, dignity and social justice, and then when they rose up against exclusion and refused to succumb “to the tyranny of a faction who, in the name of religion, put its narrow interests before the interests of the people.”

Terrorism and the threats on the world

The world is starting to grasp the reality of what happened in Egypt, and to understand the circumstances that drove Egyptians to intuitively take to the streets to rebel against the forces of extremism and darkness,” explained the President in his 17-minute speech.

The President added that Egypt had warned the world about the spread of terrorism at the hands of extremist groups.

“The upsurge in extremism and violence perpetrated in the name of religion that the region is currently witnessing is an evidence of the true objectives of these groups that exploit religion,” said Sisi.

“They have transformed the values of justice, compassion and mercy treasured by Judaism, Christianity and Islam, into grim sectarianism and destructive civil and regional wars which continue to claim the lives of innocent people of different religions.”

The President, who showed confidence in his words, asserted that Egypt has suffered from the scourge of terrorism since the 1920s at the hands of a ‘handful of extremists that commit atrocities in the name of religion.’

However, Sisi added that these extremists should not be allowed to abuse Islam and offend the 1.5 billion Muslims across the globe.

“Terrorism is a plague that does not differentiate in its spread between developing and developed societies.”

Tackling problems in the region

Egypt’s President said that extremism and polarisation had led to strife and divisions in the region.

The President called for states in the region to ensure equality among citizens and respect for the rule of law. Sisi added that confronting extremism was also essential in tackling the various crises the region faces.

On Libya, Sisi said that Egypt had partnered with the country’s neighbours to achieve a comprehensive political solution aimed at ending bloodshed and helping strengthen and support elected Libyan institutions.

Turning to Syria, the President added a political framework which reflected the aspirations of the Syrian people without compromising with terrorists or extremists was necessary.

Meanwhile, Sisi hailed the formation of a new government in Iraq, stating that it was a significant development in the path to achieving stability and regaining territories that have fallen under the control of ISIL.

In regards to Palestine, the President stated that the Palestinian issue remained a top priority for Egypt.

“Palestinians still aspire to establish their independent state on the occupied territories in 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital,” said the President, adding that Egypt had worked to achieve this goal since the 1970s.

“The continued deprivation of the Palestinian people of their rights is undoubtedly exploited by some to inflame other crises, achieve hidden goals, fragment Arab unity, and impose control on Palestinians under the guise of realising their aspirations.

Africa was also the focus of President Sisi’s speech. The President urged the world to commit to tackling the outbreak of the deadly ebola virus in Western Africa and reaffirmed Egypt’s continued desire to work with its African partners.

Security Council and Final Applause

Ending his speech, Egyptian President Sisi announced his country’s bid for non-permanent membership in the United Nations Security Council in 2016-2017.

The President added that Egypt, which was last on the Security Council in 1997, aspires to take the seat in 2016 in order to achieve the protect the interests of developing countries as well as to accelerate reform of the United Nations system.

Sisi invited member states to support Egypt’s candidature to the Security Council, adding that as a founding member of the United Nations, Egypt’s vision of international relations is one founded on the respect of the principles of international law, treaties and conventions.

Moments before concluding his speech, the President was once more interrupted with applause upon declaring “long live Egypt!”

“Long live Egypt. Long live the loving people’s of the world. Long live the principles of humanity and the values of tolerance and coexistence. Peace be upon you and God’s mercy and blessings.
