AFTERSHOCK: BLM Destroyed Water Tanks, Shot Bundy Bulls, Ran Over Tortoise Dens (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, April 16, 2014, 2:35 PM

Bureau of Land Management officials destroyed water lines and water tanks belonging to the Cliven Bundy family. The feds also shot two prized bulls and ran over at least one endangered tortoise den.

FOX News reported:

The federal agency that backed down over the weekend in a tense standoff with a Nevada rancher is being accused of leaving a trail of wreckage behind.

Fox News toured the damage — allegedly caused by the Bureau of Land Management — which included holes in water tanks and destroyed water lines and fences. According to family friends, the bureau’s hired “cowboys” also killed two prize bulls.

“They had total control of this land for one week, and look at the destruction they did in one week,” said Corey Houston, friend of rancher Cliven Bundy and his family. “So why would you trust somebody like that? And how does that show that they’re a better steward?”

The BLM and other law enforcement officials backed down on Saturday in their effort to seize Bundy’s cattle, after hundreds of protesters, some armed, arrived to show support for the Bundy family. In the end, BLM officials left the scene amid concerns about safety, and no shots were fired.

The dispute between the feds and the Bundy family has been going on for years; they say he owes more than $1.1 million in unpaid grazing fees — and long ago revoked his grazing rights over concern for a federally protected tortoise. They sent officials to round up his livestock following a pair of federal court orders last year giving the U.S. government the authority to impound the cattle.

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, April 16, 2014, 12:53 PM

Ship officials told the passengers on the capsized Korean ferry to stay in their rooms as the boat sunk off the coast of Korea.
300 passengers are still missing – including high school students.
One survivor told reporters:

“The announcement told us that we should stay still. But, the ship was already sinking and there were a lot of students that did not get out of the ship.”

Via America’s News HQ:

FOX News reported:

South Korean officials said Wednesday that nearly 300 people were still missing several hours after a multi-story passenger ferry sank off that country’s southern coast, leaving at least four dead and dozens injured.

The ferry was carrying 459 people, most of them high school students, and was bound for the island of Jeju when it sent a distress call at around 9 a.m. local time Wednesday as it began leaning to one side, according to South Korea’s Ministry of Security and Public Administration.

Lee Gyeong-og, a vice minister for South Korea’s Public Administration and Security Ministry, said the 459 people included 30 crew members, 325 high school students, 15 teachers and 89 non-student passengers.

Kang Byung-kyu, a government minister, said two of the dead were a female crew member and a male high school student. He said a third body was also believed to be that of a student. A coast guard officer confirmed a fourth fatality, but had no immediate details about it.

He said 164 people were rescued; 55 of them were injured. He said 284 people were missing, likely either trapped inside the ship or floating in the ocean.

 

 

Obama IRS Confirms: Abortions Are Now Tax Deductible

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, April 16, 2014, 12:29 PM

The Obama IRS confirmed today that abortions are now tax deductible.
Life News reported:

Here’s something from the “Did you know that?” category. Did you know that abortions are apparently eligible for a tax deduction? That appears to be true, so says the IRS.irs

From the Washington Examiner, in a list of odd tax deductions:

Have an abortion, get a tax deduction! How strange that pro-abortion advocates aren’t using this as a selling point. Hmmm.

Oh, and while they hyperventilate over Hobby Lobby not wanting to provide every type of birth control without a co-pay, it turns out that birth control pills can be deducted if prescribed by a doctor.

Also, you can deduct the purchase of pregnancy test kits and vasectomies.

So what does the IRS say about deducting the cost of killing your child?

“You can include in medical expenses the amount you pay for a legal abortion,” it says.

 

Breaking: Lois Lerner Reached Out to DOJ on Plan to Prosecute Conservative Groups

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, April 16, 2014, 12:12 PM

Lois Lerner

Lois Lerner reached out to the Holder Department of Justice on a plan to prosecute conservative tax-exempt groups. Remember: this is the same woman who believed Tea Party groups were very dangerous.
Judicial Watch reported, via Free Republic:

Judicial Watch today released a new batch of internal IRS documents revealing that former IRS official Lois Lerner communicated with the Department of Justice (DOJ) about whether it was possible to criminally prosecute certain tax-exempt entities. The documents were obtained as a result of an October 2013 Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) after the agency refused to respond to four FOIA requests dating back to May 2013.

The newly released IRS documents contain an email exchange between Lerner and Nikole C. Flax, then-Chief of Staff to then-Acting IRS Commissioner Steven T. Miller discussing plans to work with the DOJ  to prosecute nonprofit groups that “lied” (Lerner’s quotation marks) about political activities. The exchange includes the following:

I got a call today from Richard Pilger Director Elections Crimes Branch at DOJ … He wanted to know who at IRS the DOJ folk s [sic] could talk to about Sen. Whitehouse idea at the hearing that DOJ could piece together false statement cases about applicants who “lied” on their 1024s –saying they weren’t planning on doing political activity, and then turning around and making large visible political expenditures. DOJ is feeling like it needs to respond, but want to talk to the right folks at IRS to see whether there are impediments from our side and what, if any damage this might do to IRS programs.

I told him that sounded like we might need several folks from IRS…

I think we should do it – also need to include CI [Criminal Investigation Division], which we can help coordinate. Also, we need to reach out to FEC. Does it make sense to consider including them in this or keep it separate?

Lerner then “handed off” scheduling the issue to Senior Technical Adviser, Attorney Nancy Marks, who was then supposed to set up the meeting with the DOJ.  Lerner also decided that it would be DOJ’s decision as to whether representatives from the Federal Election Commission would attend.

And, now we know they were plotting to prosecute conservative groups.

Al-Qaeda Holds Massive Parade in Yemen – Vows to “Remove the Cross, and Bearer of the Cross, America”

Al Qaeda is on the run
Holding a massive parade and rally in Yemen.

The leaders of the Al-Qaeda wing in Yemen vow to attack America and “remove the cross” in his latest video.
Reuters reported:

The leader of Al Qaeda’s wing in Yemen has vowed to attack the United States, in a video apparently showing a gathering of the group celebrating a mass jailbreak of fighters.

In February, attackers mounted a bomb, grenade and gun assault on the main prison in Sanaa in which 29 inmates, including 19 jailed for terrorism-related crimes, escaped.

The 15-minute video, dated March 2014 and posted on a website used by Islamists, shows masked men waving al Qaeda’s black flag and celebrating the arrival of the freed prisoners.

Its authenticity could not be independently verified.

“The Crusader enemy, dear brothers, still possesses cards which he moves around. We have to remember that we are always fighting the biggest enemy,” says a man speaking in the open in a mountainous area, whom the video identifies as its leader Nasser al-Wuhaishi.

“We have to remove the cross, (and) the bearer of the cross, America,” said Wuhaishi, who appeared with his face uncovered, wearing a T-shirt and sporting the dagger common among Yemeni men.

The video, entitled “Images from the reception of the freed prisoners from Sanaa’s central prison”, included testimony from fighters involved in the jailbreak.

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, April 16, 2014, 8:55 AM

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld penned a letter to the IRS this year that he included with his return.
He tweeted it out yesterday.

Rumsfeld calls this “a ‘sad commentary on governance in our nation’s capital.’
The Daily Mail reported:

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says he has ‘no idea’ whether his tax returns and payments are accurate.

Rumsfeld made the claims in a letter that was sent to the IRS and shared on Twitter on Tuesday – and says he sends the same letter to the agency every year.

He also says he doesn’t even know if earlier tax documents are accurate for him and his wife.

‘I have sent in our federal income tax and our gift tax returns for 2013,‘ it reads. ‘As in prior years, it is important for you to know that I have absolutely no idea whether our tax returns and our tax payments are accurate. I say that despite the fact that I a college graduate and I try hard to make sure our tax returns are accurate.’

Report: FBI Visiting Gun Shops Looking For “People Talking About Big Government”

FBI suspicious behavior list (Shtf Plan)

The FBI is reportedly visiting fun shops looking for people talking about “big government.”
InfoWars reported:

FBI counterterrorism agents are visiting gun shops in South Carolina to investigate “suspicious purchases” made by people who talk about “big government,” according to a new report.

Author Brandon Turbeville says he was approached by an individual who works in a Columbia, South Carolina gun shop to relate the story of how an FBI agent entered the store on Monday, showed his credentials, before proceeding to ask a series of stunning questions.

Telling the gun store worker he was tasked with visiting all the firearms outlets in the local area to check on “suspicious purchases” for counterterrorism purposes, the agent then began discussing what in actual fact were “completely normal transactions,” such as, “paying with cash, purchasing long guns, and other similarly innocuous behavior.”

The FBI agent then reportedly made a shocking remark that almost seems too chilling to believe.

“If you see some Middle Eastern guy come in, you don’t have to be so worried about that. What we’re really looking for are people talking about being sovereign such as sovereign citizens or people talking about big government,” the agent reportedly stated.

Before the agent left the store, he handed the employee a flyer which lists paying with cash, buying in bulk, along with other seemingly innocuous behavior as suspicious activity.

 

Not a Joke→ UN Says Vacuuming CO2 Out of Air May Be Only Way to Save Planet Earth

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, April 16, 2014, 12:01 AM

Last Chance to Save Earth!
Giant sucking machines in the sky–
vacuum sky

The UN says the last chance to save planet Earth may be vacuuming CO2 out of the sky and burying it.
And, they’re serious.
UPI reported:

In order to stave off the worst of global warming’s consequences, the world’s nations must find a way to reduce carbon emissions by 40 to 70 percent by 2050. That’s one of many claims made in the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The new report also suggests vacuuming up vast amounts of CO2 from the skies and storing it underground may be the most viable solution for mitigating the greenhouse gas effect in the short term.

It’s the third report on climate change released by the IPCC, a group of international climate scientists organized under the auspices of the United Nations. The group’s second report, which was released last month, predicted serious environmental and economic catastrophe in the latter half of the 20th century, should calls to slow global warming continue to go unanswered.

This latest report, released on Sunday, weighs the efficacy and plausibility of a variety of climate change policy solutions and mitigation options.

Meanwhile… Detroit just had its snowiest winter on record.
