Angry midget loses it at Madison Square Garden. “[I will] destroy your [expletive] industry,” Michael Bloomberg said to Taxi Club Management CEO Gene Freidman after another one of the mayor’s nanny-state laws was overturned in court. Said Mr. Freidman afterward:
“He was very angry, very scary, very violent in a non-physical way. He was grinding his teeth, he was spitting, he was red, and he was in my face. When we walked away, I asked a friend who was with me, ‘Did the mayor just threaten me?’ My friend responded, ‘No, he threatened you twice.’”
Lois Lerner also harassed conservatives when she worked at the Federal Election Commission. So let’s see: she was in charge of the IRS division that’s been harassing and initimidating conservatives for three years, she lied in previous testimony, she pleaded the fifth today, and she harassed the living crap out of the Christian Coalition in the 1990s… sounds like this woman has earned a cabinet-level promotion, Mr. President! This is your kind of gal!
Local Fox station traces Cincinnati IRS skullduggery to one woman. Her name is Cindy Thomas and she’s also the woman who delivered information about conservative organizations to George Soros’ ProPublica outfit so they could publish it – information she gleaned from confidential IRS applications. Oh, by the way, Cindy is not a “low-level rogue employee.” She’s the “Program Manager of the Tax Exempt Division” in Cincinnati.
Michelle Obama considering spending the summer on Martha’s Vineyard. Exhausted after three months – three months, poor woman – without a vacation, it’s understandable why the first lady feels she needs an extended break.
Did the invention of guns cause murder rates to increase? Nope. European records show just the opposite. Before the 15th century, most peasants had to kill each other with clubs and pitchforks. By 1500 the peasants could afford guns and murder rates plummeted.
Three years after filing, True the Vote’s Catherine Engelbrecht is still waiting for tax exempt status. Meanwhile, two Democrat congresscritters sent threatening letters, the FBI came knocking (and keeps calling… they say they’re looking for someone), the IRS showed up at her husband’s business for an unscheduled audit, the ATF showed up for two unscheduled audits, an OSHA inspector showed up when she and her husband were out of town and levied fines, and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality showed up for an unscheduled audit. She must be doing something right.
“Staple non-blurry photo of a yeti to the back of Form 3-4-32-7.” That’s the Washington Post mocking IRS requirements for Tea Partiers. It’s fun watching the mainstream media suddenly wake up, isn’t it?
Groups Without “Tea Party” or “Constitution” in names

Burglars in Houston stuff homeowner in a closet. Unfortunately for the burglars, the closet was a gun closet. Things did not go well (for the burglars) after that.
Creepy Peeping Tom artist selling photos of his neighbors inside their own apartments. And the prices are steep. He’s asking as much as $7,500 for some of them. New York, New York: the only place in the world where large sodas are banned and photos from perverts are prized.
IRS executive responsible for tax exempt scandal got huge bonuses and a promotion. Now Sarah Hall Ingram is in charge of IRS enforcement of Obamacare. No, sorry, this isn’t a joke. Once she proved she was a dependable vampire they put her in charge of the blood supply.
Poop foam causing explosions on hog farms. The manure pits underneath Midwest hog finishing barns are foaming so aggressively it’s oozing up through the slats in the floors… and sometimes exploding. Which the hogs bitterly resent. No word thus far from university researchers about whether similar foaming exists under the U.S. Capitol.
As IRS scandal snowballs, Wayne Root feels vindicated. A former classmate of Obama’s at Columbia and relentless critic of the president’s policies, Root has been trying to tell people since January of 2011 that Obama sicced the IRS on him for revenge. No doubt the NAACP will announce that Mr. Root deserves the audits because his name is a racist thinly-veiled mockery of Kunta Kinte.
Meanwhile, Obama’s shady brother’s charity got the fastest tax exemption in history. Although many conservative organizations are still waiting for IRS approval of their tax exempt status three years after filing, the Barack H. Obama Foundation filed its application three years late and the IRS approved it 27 days later.
Obama’s IRS hit team came after Billy Graham, too! Last year, after The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association urged voters to back “candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel,” the IRS came calling, started auditing, and kept them busy until after the November election. Then they were notified they passed the audit and could keep their income tax exemption. The timing was probably just a coincidence.
Koch Industries Lawyer to White House: “How Did You Get Our Tax Information?” If the information about Koch Industries divulged by the Obama administration in August of 2010 came from the IRS, that’s a violation of federal law. And not a minor violation – someone will do time.
Reporter who asked Obama tough questions getting “hammered” by the IRS. St. Louis reporter Larry Conners interviewed Obama in April of 2012, visibly angering the president with questions about the economy and the first family’s expensive vacations. Since then, the IRS is all over Mr. Conners. Probably just a coincidence…
Venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins learns an age-old lesson: get in bed with a whore and your wallet will be missing in the morning. They brought Al Gore into the firm as a senior partner in 2007. Gore talked them into all kinds of “clean energy” investments (including Fisker Automotive, which just fired 75% of its workforce) and now the legendary venture firm admits the experience has been “humbling.”
U.N. says, “Let them eat bugs!” The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization issued a 200-page report today arguing that eating insects will fight hunger, boost nutrition and reduce pollution. Please, God, don’t let Mayor Bloomberg hear about this.
The 10 creepiest teachers who allegedly molested or tried to bang students last month. What is this? An epidemic of depravity? Or the latest greatest idea for encouraging boys to stay in school?
Glacier attack in Minnesota. The cellphone video at the link is like something from The Chronicles of Narnia. Let it serve as a warning to anyone who thinks global warming is a bigger worry than the next ice age. (It gets really interesting 30 seconds in.)
The presidents of both ABC News and CBS News have siblings working in the White House… with direct ties to the Benghazi mess. And, CNN’s deputy bureau chief is married to Hillary Clinton’s deputy. Gee whiz, why won’t the mainstream media cover Benghazi?
New York bakery creates 36,000-calorie cupcake. They named it the “Mayor Bloomberg.” It’s made with 12 pounds of sugar, five pounds of butter, two dozen eggs, and a frowning picture of Nanny Bloomberg on top.
Vampires in Ohio. Two abortion clinics closed by the state of Ohio were engaged in various medical malpractices… including stealing patients’ blood.
New York nanny-dictators go after the butter. School kitchen managers who defied the bureaucracy by ordering butter for cooking will receive “disciplinary letters.”
Tweet of the century. If they ever decide to give Pulitzer Prizes for Twitter ripostes…
