Animal Farm was an allegorical novel by George Orwell, where the animals rise up, depose the human owners of the farm and declare all to be equal.
America is a nation that declares all to be equal. Yet we are seeing with the Obama Regime, not all are equal.
Who does the Obama Regime consider to be more equal than others and who does the Obama Regime consider to be enemies of the state?
For weeks now, stories have come out of Washington about how the Tea Party and other conservative groups have been targeted by the IRS and sometimes other agencies.
When it comes to religions, the Obama Regime definitely believes that some religions are more equal than others.
According to the Christian Post, the Coalition for Life of Iowa was asked as a part of the process to obtain non-profit status to have its board of directors sign a letter under penalty of perjury that the group would not protest outside Planned Parenthood.
In a later letter, they were asked about the content of their prayers.
This is not the only instance of Christian groups being targeted by the Obama Regime. An Army briefing earlier this year listed Evangelical Christianity as a part of the threat from “religious extremism.” Also listed in the same category was Al Qaeda. The Catholic Church was also listed at a part of the threat of Religious Extremism. One other example of a threat from religious extremism was something called, “Islamophobia.”
On the other hand, Islam is treated as the religion that is more equal than others.
One of the myriad of Obama scandals has been the NSA surveillance scandal. As Sarah Palin said Saturday at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to the Majority” conference, “Our government spied on every single one of your phone calls but couldn’t find two pot-smoking deadbeat Bostonians with a hotline to terrorist central in Chechnya.”
Why couldn’t they find these guys?
Well, among other reasons, Mosques are off limits to FBI surveillance.
According to Investors Business Daily, since October 2011, Mosques have been off limits. One thing every Islamic Terrorist who has hit America since 9/11 has in common is involvement in a Mosque. Tamerlin Tsarnaev had an outburst at his Mosque in Boston before he and his brother bombed the Boston Marathon. The officials of the Mosque did not tell Federal authorities about Tsarnaev and since the FBI could not conduct surveillance at the Mosque, they remained clueless.
Nadal Hassan, the Army Major who committed mass murder at Fort Hood in 2009 openly espoused radical Islamic beliefs and even walked around with business cards that said he was “SOA” or a “Soldier of Allah.”
The FBI, as the Blaze reported in 2012, did not investigate Hassan because of political correctness. Even though FBI agents saw emails between Hassan and radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, they were prevented from investigating him.
While the Army would not investigate a man who had alarming connections to terrorists and who went on to commit mass murder, three years later, the Army is on the ball and is investigating a real threat to the Army.
According to the Fox News, Army Master Sergeant Nathan Sommers, a soldier with twenty five years service has been given a reprimand (which will effectively end his career) for serving Chic-fil-A sandwiches at his promotion party, supporting the Defense of Marriage Act (which is the law of the land) and reading books by David Limbaugh and Mark Levine.
Someone who is allied with our Islamic enemies and who eventually commits mass murder cannot be investigated but a patriotic American soldier must be punished.
Welcome to Obama’s America. Here some truly are more equal than others.

As the IRS scandal bursts upon America, there is a lot to talk about. Tea Party and conservative groups are ordered to produce reams of evidence to support their request for non-profit status. Some of the requests go well beyond what the IRS needs to determine if a group is a legitimate non-profit.
While the IRS is putting conservative groups through the wringer, there is one gigantic example of double standards at the IRS. This case alone is compelling enough to demand at the very least a lot of IRS employees be fired or perhaps even the IRS be disbanded.
What is it?
While the IRS causes as many problems for conservative organizations as possible, liberal organizations get a completely free pass on everything.
Liberal groups or groups with connections to Obama are quickly approved for non-profit status. Liberal groups that violate the rules governing their non-profit status get a free pass.
No group more exemplifies this problem than Media Matters for America.
Media Matters for America is a 501c3. As such it is described as an educational non-profit, which means that its purpose must be to support the public good and it must, for the most part, avoid partisan activities.
Media Matters has been nothing but partisan. In fact, one would be hard pressed to find anything Media Matters has done that a sane person could call educational.
Media Matters engaged in a war against Fox News, that was called a guerilla warfare campaign of sabotage against Fox.
edia Matters is one of a number of left wing tax-exempt groups that should be investigated for a violation of their tax-exempt status.
When Media Matters coordinated with the Justice Department to spin coverage of the Fast and Furious scandal, many experts viewed that as a complete violation of their status as a non-profit organization.
Unfortunately for America, we will not see an investigation anytime soon. The left has a simple philosophy. The government exists to help the left grab power, maintain power and punish those who would oppose the left.
The other culprit here is the tax code itself. Neither Media Matters nor many of these other left wing groups would exist but for the fact the tax code allows for the creation of these non-profits. The left learned long ago how to control and use non-profits to their advantage.
The tax code is seven times longer than the Bible and unlike the Bible; there is no good news to be had. It is time we abolished the entire Byzantine tax code. If groups like Media Matters want to survive, let them do so without taxpayers subsidizing them.
While conservatives also use non-profits, that is still no reason to keep non-profits or the tax code.
A tax code that gives someone like Barack Obama the tools to oppress those who disagree with them, is a tax code that is antithecal to liberty. It is a tax code that must be abolished in favor of a tax code that embraces and expands liberty.
It is time for the IRS to be disbanded.

Usually there are signs a dam is about to burst. Tiny cracks show up, the structure makes strange noises, and then, whoosh! That’s what we are witnessing as the President, the former Secretary of State, and the Attorney General struggle to keep the bulwark of lies and half-truths they have built intact. It is showing signs of collapse.
Liberals say absurd things all the time—mostly because they either don’t know the facts or because they prefer to ignore or obfuscate them. The current example is the shout-it-from-the-rooftops claim that Republicans are “politicizing” the events in Benghazi that left a U.S. ambassador and three security personnel dead.
In the wake of the House hearings on May 8th, the most elemental politics is at work within the White House and that is the decision to abandon Hillary Clinton. The decision to appoint her Secretary of State was political and, since the President sets foreign policy, it kept her wing of the party in the tent while affording the White House the opportunity to keep her conveniently on the road and largely out of the spotlight.
Name a single treaty or significant foreign policy achievement of Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State. Zero. Zip. Nada. Nienta.
Consider the meltdown of influence the United States has had in the Middle East where the single act of a Tunisian peddler who committed suicide as a response to the harassment of the police set off a revolution that drove its dictator from office and then spread rapidly to Libya where Gaddafi was killed and to Egypt where its dictator (and ally of the U.S.) was driven from office with the President’s blessing. And, for two years, the U.S. has stood on the sidelines and watched as the Syrian dictator has slaughtered 70,000 Syrians, driving some 2.5 million to flee to Turkey and Jordan.
It has taken eight months since the September 11, 2012 attack on the Benghazi consulate and a House committee hearing to learn the truth as to why repeated requests for increased security assets were denied in a nation that is still essentially a war zone between the north and the south. We still do not know who told available forces to stand down. The President and his regime call this “politicizing.”
Beyond Benghazi, every decision the President makes or chooses not to make has political implications. The choice to go to bed the night of the attack and then fly to a fundraiser the following day was political. As Commander-in-Chief he had responsibility to issue the orders to protect his diplomats—our diplomats—but he is also the Great Delegator and, as the noose tightens around Hillary, she is very expendable.
It’s a political decision to exploit the murders in a Connecticut elementary school to attack the Second Amendment and gun ownership. The response of ordinary people was to go out and buy a gun. Indeed, fear of the White House’s intentions has made the President the greatest gun salesman in the nation.
Even in the Obama Justice Department there is the odor of deception that still reeks from the bungled gun-running program called “Fast and Furious” which allowed guns purchased In the U.S. to be transferred to various Mexican drug cartels. The result, in one case, was a dead U.S. Border Patrol officer, an ICE agent, and an unknown number of Mexican cartel victims. It took a presidential executive order to throw a blanket of silence over the role of the Justice Department in this lethal debacle. That’s political.
Now we learn that the Justice Department obtained Associated Press phone records in a probe to discover the source of a leaked story. AP officials called it a “massive and unprecedented intrusion” into how a news organization gathers news. The ever-reliable, politically-correct, liberally oriented AP has become a crack in the dam.
The revelation that the Internal Revenue Service “targeted” the Tea Party, patriotic, and pro-Israel groups for special attention regarding their tax status now adds to a growing sense of a regime without any internal limits on its exercise of power.
The result is a period in which the barely concealed scorn of the President, his wife, and those around him in appointed and elected office has half the population outraged while the other half is content to live parasitically, not paying taxes, and receiving an amazing array of benefits which a bankrupt nation cannot afford.
When enough people—citizens, voters, taxpayers—think they are being lied to and betrayed by those in high office, the dam of lies will begin to show signs of bursting under the pressure of their pent up anger.

We are rapidly approached the endgame in American politics.
The endgame is the place the liberals want us to be. There is only one thing stopping them from hitting the endgame point.
What is it?
Republican control of the House of Representatives.
What is their endgame point?
It is socialism. It is the end of freedom and liberty.
The left is engaged in the strategy known as Cloward-Piven. It is named after two Marxist professors who wanted to bring down the government first in New York City and then eventually in America.
The strategy is simple. Overwhelm the system with demands that it cannot meet. Then the system will collapse.
We are seeing that today. From America’s overwhelming debt, to amnesty, to Obamacare, the left is trying to create so many demands on America’s economic system that it will collapse.
There is one last hurdle they have to overcome to get there.
That is Republican control of the House of Representatives.
As this year opened, one of the biggest topics of conversation in DC was whether Harry Reid, the bordello child from Nevada and erstwhile majority leader for the Party of Treason in the Senate would change the rules to abolish the filibuster.
Looking back on it now, it seems obvious he would not do it.
Because it would have been a meaningless point.
Harry Reid can get the Party of Treason to pass as many bills as it wants but as long as the Republicans control the House, most of those bills would be DOA.
But what happens if the Party of Treason gains control of the House again in 2014?
Then you can count on Harry Reid eliminating the filibuster so that a simple majority vote gets bills passed in the Senate.
This of course assumes that the Party of Treason maintains control of the Senate. At this point, things look good for the Republicans to take control of the Senate. However, in 2010 and 2012 things also looked good. Never underestimate the ability of the Republican Party to blow an election.
If the Party of Treason takes control of the House, Reid will abolish the filibuster in the Senate by rule change and then you will see the all out, final assault on liberty.
Liberals openly talk about the need to limit freedom and liberty.
Melissa Harris Perry is a left wing nut job on MSNBC, the official channel of the Party of Treason. She caused controversy with comments recently about how children should not be raised by their parents but by a collective community.
Now she has doubled down on her comments. In a promo airing on the Channel of Treason, she says:
“This isn’t about me wanting to take your kids, and this isn’t even about whether children are property. This is about whether we as a society, expressing our collective will through our public institutions, including our government, have a right to impinge on individual freedoms in order to advance a common good. And that is exactly the fight that we have been having for a couple hundred years.”
Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and Mao would have loved her. After all, they impinged on the individual freedom of life and liberty to advance a “common good.”
If the Party of Treason ends up controlling the House and the Senate after the 2014 elections, we will see the impinging of individual freedom for the advancement of the “common good.”
Freedom of speech and religion will be gone. The Second Amendment will be gone. The 7th Amendment will be at best curtailed if not eliminated. The 10th Amendment will simply be a museum piece and state boundaries will be little more than lines on a map.
We will no longer be the United States of America but the United State of America, with a tyrannical, massive central government.
This is what our founding fathers feared.
This is the end game for liberals.
The 2014 election comes down to one simple point. Either real Americans win the election or we all lose our freedom so the left can advance their “common good.”
But as we know about liberals, their ideas never benefit the common people nor are they good.

The level of outrage from the action of the Obama Regime doesn’t seem like it could get any higher.
Then they do something else.
Conservatives accuse the Obamas of acting like they are royalty not the family of the elected leader of this nation. Is there some truth to this and if there is will the Republicans finally do something about it?
The Obama’s have been outdoing themselves on vacations. They have been averaging more than one a month. Now, they have done two in one week.
The Obama daughters (possibly with Michelle Obama, though the coverage on this has not been clear) started the week at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. Now they have gone to the slopes of Idaho for skiing.
Must be nice to be able to take two vacations in one week.
Barack Obama could certainly afford for his family to take two vacations in one week. He is a millionaire. The problem is not the family going on vacations. The problem is the millions of dollars it costs to protect them while they are on vacation.
Not to be out done, Vice President and brain donor Joe Biden has gone on vacation to the beach as well.
Cost to the taxpayers? Unknown.
It would never occur to the Obamas, the Bidens or for that matter any member of the Party of Treason to lead by example. In case they don’t remember, real America, namely America that is outside of the Washington DC bubble, is still suffering from the Great Obama Depression.
If you believe the statistics from the Obama Department of Labor, unemployment is around 8%. The labor force participation rate is a better indicator of how the economy is doing. It is at an all-time low.
Millions of Americans are out of work or are forced into part-time work because of the Obama Regime’s policies. Millions of Americans can’t even do a weekend getaway much less a full fledged vacation.
What does Obama do?
He does not care.
After all, he thinks he is royalty. He thinks he is entitled to this.
With millions of Americans unemployed and a stagnant economy, the question is, are the Republicans ever going to do anything about this? Are they ever going to fight?
The Obama White House costs Americans $1.4 billion a year. This includes a quarter of a million dollars a year for calligraphers and over $100,000 a year for the Presidential dog groomer.
And while those positions are being eliminated, perhaps the GOP should pass a rider to the budget that says Obama gets one vacation a year. If he wants more than that, he foots the bill for all of it. He pays for Air Force One. He pays for the hotels. He pays for his own security.
If someone were doing a real job as poorly as Obama is doing his, do you think he would even get one paid vacation, much less several?
There are millions of real Americans who are suffering. To watch the Obamas vacation like royalty, on their tax dollars is adding insult to injury.

On Saturday, Greens around the world will turn off their lights in a symbolic “Earth Hour” gesture against climate change, the term they adapted in the face of the fact that the Earth has been cooling for seventeen years and is on the cusp of a mini-ice age that will ensure cold weather for many years to come.
Earth Hour is a protest against the use of electricity—energy—to light our lives in countless ways. Anyone who has gone through an outage as I did in the wake of Hurricane Sandy will tell you that life without electricity is an immediate return to primitive times. Mine lasted a week and included the loss of access to the Internet and the ability to use my computer and every other piece of equipment in the apartment. It was not fun.
We derive electricity from burning coal, from natural gas, from nuclear fission, and from hydroelectricity generated by huge dams. The least amount of electricity we use comes from oil and, in particular from wind and solar, a bare two percent or so. These latter two sources exist only because of government subsidies and mandates. Without these they could not compete against far more affordable and effective sources. Oil, of course, fuels all our vehicles.
What Americans generally have not absorbed is the fact that the large, multi-million dollar funded environmental organizations oppose every form of energy we use. Here is a week’s schedule of events planned to lead up to and follow Earth Hour in New Jersey by the Sierra Club chapter.
# On Thursday, March 21, they sponsored a “Fracking Waste Ban Lobby Day” in the state capital of Trenton.
# On Saturday they will sponsor an “adventure aquarium trip” devoted to sea turtles and a lecture on “how our plastic addiction impacts them.” We are no more “addicted” to plastic than to oil from which it is produced and found in virtually everything we use. Energy is not the enemy. It is the lifeblood of a successful economy and society.
# On Sunday there will be a town hall meeting about “clean energy solutions” in concert with Climate Mama, 350.org and the Sierra Club with a panel that will discuss how clean energy, solar and wind, “can dramatically reduce our use of fossil fuels and move our state forward without the pollution.” It will also discuss how “climate change has impacted you.” Americans are not going to reduce the use of fossil fuels, oil, coal, and natural gas. We already enjoy the cleanest air and, more importantly, the Earth in general and America in particular has enormous reserves of these energy reserves.
# On Wednesday, March 27, another panel will engage in “pipeline education”, ignoring the fact that America has 170,000 miles of pipelines that transport oil and natural gas throughout the nation. They are safe and secure, but none carry ethanol, a chemical that erodes not only pipelines, but damages the engines of millions of cars and trucks. The pipeline panel will likely take note of the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada that has been delayed for five years now and cleared of any charges of environmental harm.
The Competitive Enterprise Institute suggests that Earth Hour is a good time to celebrate “Human Achievement Hour”, a way to debunk the global warming hoax and the nonsense surrounding “climate change”, a process that has gone on for billions of years on the planet. The notion that people can do anything about the climate is so absurd it defies the imagination.
Earth Hour is just one more way for the Greens to continue spreading their lies about fossil fuels, plastic, and chemicals they want to demonize despite the advances in health and longevity, the manufacture of products we use, and the extraordinary lifestyle we enjoy with abundant food and protection against the multitude of insect and rodent pests that afflict us, along with the many species of weeds that affect crops.
Not that long ago, Greens were spreading nonsense about “peak oil”, saying that the Earth was running out of this energy source, but new reserves of oil are being found all the time. Between 1945 and 2010, the United States alone produced 167 billion barrels of oil, more than eight times more oil than the amount of proven oil reserves it had in 1944. Oil doesn’t merely fuel our cars and trucks, but as fracking techniques have been developed, more and more of it is available. Between 1980 and 2010, the U.S. produced 77.8 billion barrels of oil and still had 20.7 billion barrels of oil reserves left.
What Americans should keep in mind during Earth Hour is that we have a White House that has done everything in its power to deprive us of the coal, oil and natural gas that we have at our disposal. It has restricted the exploration and extraction of billions of barrels of oil from offshore of our east and west coasts, and in Alaska. It has generated regulations that have already shut down coal-fired plants and is seeking to impose greater restrictions despite the fact that we have enough coal to keep them operating for hundreds of years.
With more than 1.7 trillion barrels of recoverable oil under our soil, we have enough oil to fuel our present needs for the next 250 years. Delaying the Keystone XL pipeline has deprived the nation of thousands of jobs and will result in $5 billion being spent annually to import oil. Meanwhile, the Obama administration has wasted billions on “clean energy investments.”
Americans know their energy bills are increasing as the result of anti-energy policies, know that the energy sector, if allowed to flourish, would provide thousands of jobs, and should know that every drop of oil and cubic foot of natural gas we secure from our own reserves would reduce the cost to everyone in every way.
Turn on your lights at 8:30 PM on Saturday. Turn them all on. Send a message to the White House and to the world that energy is the heartbeat of life and economic growth for America and the world.
Hating energy is another form of hating humanity.

The word needs to be gotten out to the American grassroots about this!
This past week, Glenn Beck exposed a new educational system that Obama and the Progressive Socialists put in place, called CScope in TX and Core Curriculum in the rest of the country, and he showed the evidence from their materials, that they are actually teaching school kids all over the country, that Communism is the best system!
They have gotten away with this, by making teachers sign proprietary non-disclosure agreements and preventing parental and state oversight of this curriculum!
Teachers are getting fired for helping expose this, and refusing to teach it!
People need to be screaming bloody murder about this, but of course the mainstream media is in the tank for the Socialists!
If you can get a free trial for Blaze TV, go watch last week’s expose’s of this!
If this isn’t stopped, it will all be over, for capitalism!
PLEASE distribute this to as many Americans as you can!

There are actually two wars on women going on right now. One is a faux war, created by the media. The other is a very real war. But since the left launches the second war on women, don’t expect to hear much about it from the drive-by media.
What is this second war on women that no one is talking about and why should we conservatives be talking about it, regardless of whether we are male or female?
Joe Salazar is a Colorado Democrat. Perhaps that is the same thing as saying he is a complete sexist, raging idiot.
Colorado was considering a bill that would forbid concealed carry permit holders from carrying their weapons on the grounds of colleges and universities.
Salazar said that women really didn’t need guns to protect themselves if they were afraid. After all, they might not get raped. Or they might go off and just start shooting people for no good reason because, well who knows why.
Salazar is not the only idiot in Colorado. The University of Colorado is like almost every other college and university in the nation. Liberals control it and of course they don’t like guns.
So what is a woman supposed to do if she is stalked or threatened by a rapist? These bright lights think a whistle is a great defense. Forget bringing a knife to a gunfight, these dim bulbs want you to bring a little piece of plastic to a gunfight. Is it any wonder why American students at all levels constantly fail when compared to foreign students?
Conservatives learn from not only their mistakes but also other people’s mistakes. We learned that banning guns in certain areas like college campuses does not make them safer. It only makes it easier for criminals.
If a criminal is going to come on campus to rape a woman do you think he is really going to worry about another law that prohibits him from carrying a gun? No, he is going to be jumping up, giving Joe Salazar high fives, thanking him for making the campus a target rich zone and an area where he can prey on victims without fear of running into someone who is armed and can fight back.
Conservatives must fight these stupid laws but we also must realize something else. Self-defense is our personal responsibility.
Unfortunately for real Americans, we are facing the increasing reality that the left is stripping our 2nd Amendment rights from us. Perhaps even worse, the Supreme Court is becoming less than friendly for conservatives. Cases like District of Columbia v. Heller, which struck down the gun control laws of the District of Columbia. Heller was a 5-4 decision.
After the way Chief Justice John Roberts folded like a cheap black robe, there is no way any of us should feel comfortable that the Supreme Court will protect our 2nd Amendment Rights.
The battle for the 2nd Amendment is a battle we cannot lose. The 2nd Amendment is not about personal protection. It is about preserving liberty and stopping government tyranny.
If you live in a jurisdiction that has repealed the 2nd Amendment, you need to think about alternatives for self-defense if you cannot carry a gun.
Martial arts is one of those alternatives you should think about. Martial arts has a couple of benefits. The first is it is physical fitness. We have to deal with the fact Obamacare is not going to be repealed. The Republicans have made no serious effort to repeal Obamacare. They have not even tried an incremental approach to repeal.
The best way to fight Obamacare and avoid the death panels that will be there, regardless of what the Obama Regime says, is to be on offense. So much disease is preventable. If you smoke, stop smoking. If you are overweight, change your diet and lose weight. Get out and exercise.
What do you do if you cannot carry your gun with you? Are you just going to be another victim?
Martial arts, particularly those that started in Asia were started as a response to a population that was disarmed. If the population could not fight with weapons, they had to find another way to fight back.
Today there are a number of very effective martial arts that will teach you how to defend yourself. You do not have to be a teenager to take these martial arts. Some of them emphasize the ability to fight back without being in fantastic shape.
Combat Hapkido is one of them. Being a small person is actually a benefit in this martial art.
We must fight for our rights. But we have lost too many of those fights. We have too many low information voters that have put Barack Obama back in office.
While we must fight for the best, we must also prepare for the worst. Unfortunately for America, right now under Obama’s America, we are living in the worst of times.

Even the left is realizing that Obamacare is not going to work.
Of course, the left does not want Obamacare repealed because Obamacare has never been about insurance or even medical care. It has always been about power.
So what do liberals do when they realize they have a problem? The keep digging the hole deeper.
From the LA Times:
As the state moves to expand healthcare coverage to millions of Californians under President Obama‘s healthcare law, it faces a major obstacle: There aren’t enough doctors to treat a crush of newly insured patients.
Some lawmakers want to fill the gap by redefining who can provide healthcare.
They are working on proposals that would allow physician assistants to treat more patients and nurse practitioners to set up independent practices. Pharmacists and optometrists could act as primary care providers, diagnosing and managing some chronic illnesses, such as diabetes and high-blood pressure.
“We’re going to be mandating that every single person in this state have insurance,” said state Sen. Ed Hernandez (D-West Covina), chairman of the Senate Health Committee and leader of the effort to expand professional boundaries. “What good is it if they are going to have a health insurance card but no access to doctors?”
Hernandez’s proposed changes, which would dramatically shake up the medical establishment in California, have set off a turf war with physicians that could contribute to the success or failure of the federal Affordable Care Act in California.
Doctors say giving non-physicians more authority and autonomy could jeopardize patient safety. It could also drive up costs, because those workers, who have less medical education and training, tend to order more tests and prescribe more antibiotics, they said.
Instead of letting the free market work, Democrats must legislate another failure.
What happens when we run out of Doctors, nurses and Physician assistants?
In California, I’m sure they will just approve witch doctors to do medical treatment.
