At Wednesday’s hearing, South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy wanted to find out why Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Douglas Shulman didn’t intervene in the agency’s political targeting of conservative groups once he knew about it.  The recalcitrant Shulman replied that he didn’t intervene because the Inspector General was looking into it.

And Gowdy, who actually appears to be serious about enforcing the law, responded incredulously:

“Is that what you’re telling me? You’re not going to step in and stop it? If there’s someone wielding a knife in the parking lot, are you going to call the inspector general? Are you going to wait until his or her investigation is over to stop it?”— Trey Gowdy, South Carolina Congressman

Obviously Gowdy thinks that using the IRS to target Obama’s political opponents is a crime. Plus he possesses some cojones to ask the pertinent questions of those who are keeping the American people in the dark about who ordered the deliberate targeting of political conservatives and tea party organizations.

Over the two-year time frame the IRS was targeting conservative groups about their tax exempt status, Shulman visited the White House 118 times, 132 different members of Congress contacted him about the targeting issue, and 42 major news stories were written about the IRS targeting conservative groups, yet Shulman mustarded the chutzpah to assure Congress last year that nothing was going on and that the agency was not targeting conservative groups.

Shulman must think that most Americans are too preoccupied to care or their heads screw on. Sad to say, he may be right on both counts.

An Oklahoma man has posted to YouTube what appears to be cell-phone video of the formation of the deadly tornado that leveled Moore, Oklahoma, Monday afternoon.

“The birth of the May 20, 2013 tornado. Moved from there to Moore where it turned into an F4. God be with its victims.”—Charles Cook

Cook reportedly shot the video from a Newcastle, Oklahoma, parking lot while sitting in his car, and his son posted a link to the footage on Reddit.com.

“Incredible video my Dad took of the May 20th tornado FORMING and destroying everything in its path near Newcastle. He was out that way for work today and just happened to be in the right place at the right time. He was worried it was going to come back at him and was searching for a way to scoot out [of its] way once he was able to gauge how insanely close it was to him. He hung in there, though. Unbelievable.”—son of Charles Cook, Reddit.com user

An Anderson County South Carolina woman phoned police Monday morning about a dog that had been barking for days at North Pointe Creek. Animal Control Officer Michelle Smith responded to the call and climbed down a small embankment behind Home Depot where she discovered a small black and white Shih Tzu mix guarding a five-week-old kitten tangled in bushes at the bottom of the ravine.

“I’m thinking that it just couldn’t get back up [the embankment] with the kitten, and I don’t think it was willing to leave the kitten.”— Michelle Smith, Animal control officer

Smith took both animals to Anderson County P.A.W.S. where the five-year-old Shih Tzu has been caring for the kitten, keeping it clean and well fed.

“It would be like one of us seeing a neglected or abandoned child and taking it under our wing.—Jessica Cwynar, P.A.W.S. director

Apparently the dog is undergoing a false pregnancy and has been nursing the kitten. According to Cwynar, the dog produces some milk, but the kitten must also be bottle-fed to get enough nutrition.

Cwynar hopes that if the owners come for their dog that they’d be willing to adopt the kitten too.

Unprincipled reporters have omitted evidence regarding the events surrounding the Trayvon Martin shooting to intentionally mislead the public.

“‘She [Dee Dee, the girl who had been on the phone with Trayvon Martin when he was shot by George Zimmerman] connects the dots,’ Crump [Martin family attorney] told the media excitedly. ‘She completely blows Zimmerman’s absurd defense claim out of the water.’ …

As Crump told the story, the young couple had been on the phone for an astonishing 400 minutes that day, caught up as they were in “puppy love.” So distraught was Dee Dee at Martin’s death, said Crump, “She couldn’t even go to his wake she was so sick. Her mother had to take her to the hospital. She spent the night in the hospital.” Lest the media try to exploit this romance, Crump asked them to “please respect her privacy. She is a minor.” As would be proven later, Dee Dee was neither hospitalized nor a minor, but those were the least of the … lies. …

According to Crump, the heavy-set, twenty-eight year old ‘loose cannon’ had no intention of going back to his truck. He pursued Martin and shot him down. Dee Dee heard it all. The witnesses confirmed her testimony. Cried the outraged Crump at the end of his presentation, ‘Arrest George Zimmerman for the killing of Trayvon Martin in cold blood today.’

Crump got his point across. Gutman headlined his piece on ABC.com, ‘Trayvon Martin’s Last Phone Call Triggers Demand for Arrest Right Now.’ ABC’s Diane Sawyer introduced Gutman’s TV piece, which hammered the Sanford Police Department for its many presumed failings, by referring to Zimmerman as the ‘neighborhood watchdog.’ The piece closed with a photo of a young Martin hugging a baby.

In none of the contemporary reporting did anyone challenge Crump’s account. No one asked why this girl failed to inquire about the fate of her beau who, when last heard from, was getting beaten by an unknown man. Why did she not call Trayvon’s parents? Why did she not call the police after she learned of his death? How could the plodding overweight Zimmerman have run down the younger, fitter Martin?

These, however, were minor journalistic oversights compared to the most damning oversight of all: the failure to confirm who was crying out for help. At this stage, the media had full access to the 911 calls from the eyewitnesses. On the 911 call from Witness #11 one hears in the background forty-two seconds of screaming. The man on the tape yells ‘help’ over and over. No one could deny the fear and desperation in his voice. The case hinged on that discovery, and yet not a single major media commentator thought to question Crump’s concocted analysis of the screams.”

The mainstream media (msm) have proven time and again they will disregard evidence and report disinformation and lies to advance the leftist agenda. The msm are little more than a public relations and marketing firm for Obama and the Democrat Party.

Around noon yesterday Jack Pawlowski grabbed a toy gun and his two kids and walked over to Ditmars Park to shoot plastic pellets at a tree.

“At first I thought I was hallucinating. He pulled out this gun. The next thing, he took his son, who is 3, and showed him how to use it, and then the family took turns shooting the gun.”—Maria Smilios of Astoria

The Queens man was arrested for allegedly shooting plastic pellets from a toy pellet gun and showing his kids how to fire it.

“I don’t tend to take things lying down, so I went past the parents, and so I walked straight over and I confronted him. I mean, he’s brandishing a firearm and I don’t care if that firearm is plastic. That’s unacceptable.”—Leni Calas, mom who was on a playground at the park

Soon the designers of the politically-correct, Democrat-controlled totalitarian states will be putting up iron curtains to keep their people in.

When they came for the plastic toy guns that shoot plastic pellets, I did nothing because I was not a toy gun owner.

“And another great day in this greatest nation on God’s green earth.”
