National Treasury Employees Union President Colleen Kelley (in tan jacket) leads a protest earlier this month. About 250 Federal workers massed in Federal Plaza in Manhattan May 7 to protest the sequester cuts. (The Chief)
This explains things President Obama met with anti-Tea Party IRS union chief Colleen Kelly in the White House the day before the agency targeted Tea Party. The Spectator reported:
For me, its about collaboration. National Treasury Employees Union President Colleen Kelley on the relationship between the anti-Tea Party IRS union and the Obama White House Is President Obama directly implicated in the IRS scandal?
Is the White House Visitors Log the trail to the smoking gun?

Union Thugs Drafted by 0bama Into Civil Rights Violations?
They are certainly making it hard to get on the site to read the article - it is a very good article on the meetings with Obama and the head of the Union at the IRS on the day before the harassment of the Tea Party began. The log books show that she met with the president at that time. It has good background on the role of the unions in this whole fiasco.
The government is corrupt, and we need someone to get rid of the corruption from both parties, but we should start with the DOJ. They are, after all, supposed to be enforcing the laws, even though they are selective about it.
It is no longer the rule of law, but a rule by the party. This must stop.
Collaboration is something the MSM can tell you all about it.
Protest Obamas IRS at your local IRS Office or Post Office at Noon, May 21.
Gadsden Flags are optional.

The Spectator website has been timing out since somebody posted their article a little while ago. I see that it’s on Drudge, so that says to me that this is very interesting to a lot of people indeed.
And the lying news media is covering for Obama

House Republicans Must Not Bow to Minority Calling for Shutdown, Seek Common Sense Agreement
Thursday, March 31 2011
Washington, D.C. As a small gathering of Tea Party activists outside the Capitol chanted shut it down, federal employees who serve millions of Americans call on House Republicans to reach a sensible fiscal 2011 budget agreement that will avert a destructive government shutdown and continue to provide vital services to the country, said the leader of the nations largest independent federal union.
For months, budget negotiations have stalled in Congress as House Republicans have succumbed to extreme Tea Party elements rather than coming to common sense compromises, said Colleen M. Kelley, president of the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU).
You have to be from Wonderland to believe that you can make severe cuts in government spending without sending the economy into a tailspin and cutting critical services Americans depend upon. It is time to put aside ideological stances and for Congress to agree on a budget that serves the American people.
Yet a handful of ideologues and their political supporters gathered today to ignore the obvious negative effects and continue to push for unrealistic cuts that will result in a loss of vital services for all Americans. These cuts will mean things like longer waits for taxpayer refunds, fewer services to veterans, less assistance for people with disabilities, more threats to our clean air and water, weakened border security, significantly fewer food safety inspections, and more.
House Republican leaders must not kowtow to extreme elements, and instead get serious about the fiscal 2011 budget negotiations, Kelley said. We must agree on a common sense budget that provides for our citizens while being honest about the impact of proposed cuts.
The reality is that proposed cuts would do little to address the national deficit. Indeed, many of the proposed cuts would actually worsen the deficit by forgoing billions in revenue to address our national deficit. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) collects more than 93 percent of all of our countrys revenue. According to the IRS, the proposed cuts to the IRS budget would reduce revenue this year by at least $4 billion, in addition to undermining the public trust in the fairness of the tax system, which will negatively impact voluntary compliance with tax laws.
In addition to the proposed $600 million cut to the IRS, Tea Party elements of the Republican party support cuts of $242 million for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), $30 million for the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), $345 million for Customs and Border Protection (CBP), $100 million for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and $200 million for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration in the Department of Health and Human Services.
These proposed budget cuts would not benefit American families, but would have the opposite effect by endangering public health and cutting critical services. For example, cuts at the FDA would mean a further decline in food safety inspections, including 2,000 fewer food inspections of domestic and foreign food and medical product firms, 10,000 fewer import inspections and 6,000 fewer laboratory sample analyses of food and medical products. Food inspections dropped to only 7,500 in 2009, down dramatically from 35,000 in 1978.
NTEU represents more than 150,000 employees in 31 agencies and departments
