Washington bureaucrats are targeting conservative groups by changing the IRS tax exempt rules. In a recent article NEWSMAX House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp stated that “There continues to be an ongoing investigation, with many documents yet to be uncovered, into how the IRS systematically targeted and abused conservative-leaning groups… This smacks of the administration trying to shut down potential critics.” Click here for more.

“…Facebook took down a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) which highlighted the fact that Obama denied backup to the forces being overrun in Benghazi.”
Facebook, A Tool Of The Liberal Media?
Has facebook joined CNN and the rest of the liberal media in manipulating the truth? Breitbart.com published an article that calls into question the motivations of facebook.
“Facebook Manager Andrew Noyes emailed the following to Breitbart News this morning: We wanted to follow up on the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) article published on Breitbart.com last night. I assure you that removing the image was not an act of censorship on our part. This was an error and we apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused.
Over the weekend, Facebook took down a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) which highlighted the fact that Obama denied backup to the forces being overrun in Benghazi.
The message was contained in a meme which demonstrated how Obama had relied on the SEALS when he was ready to let them get Osama bin Laden, and how he had turned around and denied them when they called for backup on Sept 11.”

Do we really know what the unemployment rate is? Week after week the estimate made by the White House is getting revised upwards. The unemployment rate is worse then they say it is. The Obama administration is not telling us the truth.
They Don’t Know What An “Estimate” Is
When a true estimate is made on anything, the final results will are as likely to show the revision go up as they are likely to show the revision go down. With revisions made to Obama’s estimates, the revisions have shown a worse rate than the one estimated by the administration in 60 of the last 61 weeks. This is statistically impossible. Obama and his administration is lying to us every day.

$9 Million Of Your Money Spent On His Causes
Do you know what Obama is spending your money on? How about this one. Your money was spent to “stimulate” the economy by running advertisements promoting his economic package. You subsidized his propaganda!
If the law is already passed, then what is the point of promoting it to the public with taxpayer money? The only cause could be for political promotion. That is totally unnecessary.
At a minimum, taxpayers have spent $9.1 million as of July 2010 on signs advertising the Obama administration’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, also known as the stimulus law, according to federal officials reporting estimates to the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board.
But the cost is probably much higher since the six government agencies that spent stimulus dollars relied largely on sampling to get an estimate of how much money was spent on posting signs near Recovery Act projects. – CNSNEWS
What other Obama causes are the taxpayers paying the promotion costs on?

Connections to corrupt bankers revealed in Wall Street Journal. Did you hear about this from your press sources?
Who is Alexi Giannoulias?
On August 5th, Obama is going to Chicago to campaign for Alexi Giannoulias. A fine upstanding 34-year-old running for a US Senate seat. Right? Hardly!
Giannoulias is the “…Illinois state treasurer and heir to a family bank that was seized this spring by the feds.” – WSJ 7-22-2010. He met Obama and supported him through his 2004 Senate Victory. Giannoulias has some other problems. When Giannoulias was senior loan office at Broadway Bank money was disbursed to Michael “Jaws” Giorango, a convicted bookmaker. And Giannoulias has received criticism for mismanaging the state’s college savings program.
The seat is currently occupied by Ronald Burris who’s ethics have been brought into question. He was appointed by former Gov. Rod Balgojevich, who is currently in the middle of his corruption trial.
So if Obama is going to campaign for a banker to fill this closely watched Senate seat in his home state then you would think it would be for someone who has shown good banking ethics. So why is he backing Giannoulias:
The president got his reward when Mr. Giannoulias leveraged his new political clout to raise funds for the Obama presidential campaign. Mr. Obama would also take donations from Giannoulias family members and at least one Broadway Bank manager. A few local papers noted the gap between Mr. Obama’s new-politics rhetoric and his old-politics Giannoulias ties, but most media ignored it. – Wall Street Journal
An Act Of Despiration
In late 2008 Obama began to recognize the problems that could be caused by Giannoulias. He tried to get the Illinois Attorney General, Lisa Madigan, to run for the open Senate seat. She declined. Obama has not been able to find anyone better suited for the position.
The Democrats could loose their Senate majority. An Obama could loose more clout. Illinois Democrats have shown their aggravation by not donating money to the Giannoulias campaign. He raised $900,000 in the second quarter vs. $2.3 million raised by his opponent.
So our President who is saving us from corrupt banking is going to campaign for a corrupt banker.
