Meadows Joins Effort Demanding Justice Department Turn Over Communications with IRS

mark-meadowsWashington, D.C.— Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) signed on to a joint letter with members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to Attorney General Eric Holder demanding the Department of Justice (DOJ) turn over all communications related to IRS targeting of 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organizations dated from January 1, 2009 to present.

The letter comes on the heels of revelations that the Justice Department was in communication with ousted IRS official, Lois Lerner, about potentially prosecuting tax-exempt organizations for alleged false claims made on IRS reports related to political activity. Ms. Lerner was formerly the Director of Exempt Organizations at IRS and is believed to be a central figure in the targeting of political organizations. She has thus far refused to testify or answer questions from Congress regarding her involvement.

“I applaud Chairman Issa and the rest of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee for demanding accountability from the Justice Department,” Rep. Meadows said.

“These recent revelations have seriously called into question DOJ’s credibility to investigate the Tea Party targeting by the IRS. We need answers from them,” Meadows added.

The letter requests that DOJ turn over all communications related to tax-exempt organizations since January 1, 2009, all communications involving Lerner, and all documents and communications related to the potential prosecution of tax-exempt groups reports dating back to January 2009.

The letter also requests that Lerner’s known point of contact at DOJ, Richard Pilger, the Director of Elections Crimes Branch at DOJ, be made available to the Committee for questioning.

Pro-Common Core Deception Falling Apart

no common coreThe New American – From the outset, the shadowy development and nationwide imposition of the widely criticized national K-12 standards have been shrouded in deception. The oft-parroted myth that Common Core was in any way “state-led,” for example, has been thoroughly discredited by this publication and many others, including by some of the nation’s top experts in the field. Claims that the nationalized standards would improve education have also been widely debunked, even by some of the respected educators who sat on the largely for-show “Common Core Validation Committee.” The content experts in both English and Mathematics refused to sign off on the standards, citing poor quality, incorrect math, and more.

California Shouldn’t Be Able to Impose Regulations on Businesses Outside of California

cato 1One of the several failures of the Articles of Confederation was the incapacity of the central government to deal with trade disputes among the states. The Constitution resolved this problem by empowering the federal government to regulate interstate commerce. It has since become a basic principle of American federalism that a state may not regulate actions in other states or impede the interstate flow of goods based on out-of-state conduct (rather than on the features of the goods themselves).

Article V: Reality vs. Myth

Apr 17

From U.S. Constitution – Article 1 Section 8

To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;

The so-called ownership of large parts of the states, like the 84.5% of Nevada, has always bothered me as I can not remember reading anywhere that the Federal Government PURCHASED all of the land they claim to own from the states. Have I missed some deeds somewhere of the states selling such to the Federal Government? Shouldn’t the land that the Federal Government claimed once a state was formed from such land became the state’s property? Then sold back to the Federal Government for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings? – Fremont V Brown III
