  • IRS Brazenly Continues Crackdowns On Conservative Organizations

    A little publicized IRS decision should have conservatives who write about politics very alarmed. The IRS revoked the tax-exempt status of a conservative political organization, the Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty (PHCIL), due to a handful of articles that founder Gary Aldrich wrote in his personal capacity. His decade-old articles simply criticized Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, which the IRS claimed constituted electioneering. The articles were linked to as "alerts" from the PHCIL website. The American Spectator noted, “Although the literature demands that those like Clinton and Kerry be kept out of power, it never specifically says, ‘Don’t vote...
  • David Brock’s Media Matters Allegedly Hid Income From IRS For Years

    In December 2016, a largely unnoticed report from The Citizen’s Audit revealed that David Brock’s Media Matter’s allegedly hid $1 million from the IRS spanning 2010 to 2014. Brock’s Media Matters owns a lease to the entire 6th floor of a building in Washington D.C. – also reported by The Citizen’s Audit – and subleases office space to thirteen other organizations. However, the city of Washington D.C. only recognizes one registered occupant on the 6th floor – Media Matters for America. If they all share the same floor space and pay rent to Brock, that's something to tell the IRS....

    On Thursday evening, precisely 49 days, five hours and 11 minutes after Barack Obama was no longer the president of the United States, the conspiracy-enthusiastic site Gateway Pundit posted a new story: "Breaking: Malik Obama Tweets Alleged Barack Obama Birth Certificate In Kenya" Gateway Pundit never met an anti-Obama or anti-Hillary-Clinton story that it didn’t like. On any number of occasions, the site’s articles have been demonstrably false, as collated by the liberal watchdog group Media Matters. Despite that — or perhaps because of its ferocious defenses of then-candidate Donald Trump over the course of 2016 — an employee of...

    Donald Trump faced seemingly insurmountable obstacles in his unlikely anti-establishment quest for the presidency. Now he may face an obstacle designed to prevent him from finishing his presidency: an effort to impeach him. The Washington Free Beacon reported in late January that it had obtained a confidential David Brock memo listing the “ways the Democratic operative plans to use his numerous organizations to take down President Donald Trump through impeachment,” the site writes. Brock (shown), once a conservative investigative reporter who switched sides and later founded the leftist propaganda site Media Matters for America, discussed his scheme late last month...

The memo contains plans for defeating Trump through impeachment, expanding Media Matters’ mission to combat “government misinformation,” ensuring Democratic control of the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, filing lawsuits against the Trump administration, monetizing political advocacy, using a “digital attacker” to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and damage Republicans, and partnering...

    Democrats know they need someone to lead them out of the wilderness. But, they say, that someone is not David Brock. As David Brock attempts to position himself as a leader in rebuilding a demoralized Democratic Party in the age of Trump, many leading Democratic organizers and operatives are wishing the man would simply disappear. Many in the party—Clinton loyalists, Obama veterans, and Bernie supporters alike—talk about the man not as a sought-after ally in the fight against Trumpism, but as a nuisance and a hanger-on, overseeing a colossal waste of cash. And former employees say that he has hurt...

Subsequent internet postings identified the location of the alleged crime scene as being Comet Ping Pong Pizza, a DC ping pong-themed pizzaria featuring live music acts. Citing a "family emergency", Greenwood abruptly terminated her business dealings with Alefantis and disappeared, finally surfacing as Executive Chef at Bethesda's Food & Wine Co. An anonymous poster to the thread, presumably Alefantis, objects to the dark story: "Why wouldn't I...

    Uncovered financial statements expose Media Matters. The organization received $1,052,500 in sublet rental income from 2010 to 2014, but failed to report this income to the IRS. Instead, key players pocketed this money for their own personal use. David Brock, recently described by Politico as “the Democrats’ dark-arts master,” has some explaining to do. His organization, Media Matters for America, has failed to report to the IRS over $1 million in sublet rental income from 2010 to 2014. David Brock and his allies are most likely pocketing that money for themselves. Media Matters shares office space with 13 separate organizations...

    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has been the target of some particularly bizarre attacks in recent days by mainstream publications such as the New York Times and Rolling Stone Magazine. On Thursday, Jeb Lund wrote an article for Rolling Stone Magazine lamenting, for example, that Ted Cruz's book A Time for Truth "possesses only 66 end notes." Lund's article, which links to Soros-funded hyper-partisan publications ThinkProgress and MediaMatters, further complained (hysterically): Lund seems to make the point that Cruz's brilliance is "exceptionally nasty" because Lund can't really find anything in his book to dispute. Contrast Cruz's book with Barack Obama's...

    This week my TV show is on gun control. I interviewed activist Leah Barrett, who wants stricter gun laws. I pointed out that after most states loosened gun laws to let people carry guns, 29 peer-reviewed studies examined the effect. Eighteen found less crime, 10 found no difference and only one found an increase. "Which studies?" Barrett snapped. "John Lott's? His research has been totally discredited." "Discredited" is a word the anti-gun activists use a lot. It's as if they speak from the same playbook. "Lott is a widely discredited ideologue," said a spokeswoman for Everytown -- a Bloomberg-funded gun...

    It kills me to write this post. I have spent more time worshiping Beyoncé than just about any other pop star. I've spent countless hours dancing to "Grown Woman" alone in my apartment. I've been the only guy in a dance class aimed at teaching the "Single Ladies" dance, and I loved every second of it. Beyoncé has been queen in my life since the first time I watched the "Crazy In Love" video. But. Over the past few months, Beyoncé has repeatedly refused the opportunity to speak out against the legalization of discrimination against LGBT people in her hometown......

    WASHINGTON — Sidney Blumenthal stood to benefit financially from his unofficial advice to Hillary Clinton on U.S. policy in Libya when Clinton was secretary of State, according to the Republican chairman of the House committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi. “Beyond the pure politics that were occurring at this time, perhaps more disturbing is that at the same time Blumenthal was pushing Secretary Clinton to war in Libya, he was privately pushing a business interest of his own in Libya that stood to profit from contracts with the new Libyan government — a government that would exist only...

    In March, an investigation by ProPublica and Gawker revealed that a “secret spy network” that was not on the State Department payroll, run by longtime Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal, was “funneling intelligence about the crisis in Libya directly to the Secretary of State’s private account starting before the Benghazi attack.” Now the WEEKLY STANDARD has learned that Tyler Drumheller, the former chief of the CIA’s clandestine service in Europe who was working directly with Blumenthal as a member of Clinton’s spy network, was concurrently working as a consultant to CBS News and its venerable news program 60 Minutes. According to...

    Executive Summary The Iranian nuclear deal is a full capitulation to Iran’s terrorist mastermind Mullahs, and the latest in a series of betrayals of the American people and allies by the Obama administration. At the highest level of the administration, Barack Obama’s Senior Advisor, the Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett, prioritized rapprochement with the terror state. Throughout the process and negotiations, she had the backing of billionaire investor (and Obama-backer) George Soros, and his multi-headed network of tax-exempt foundations. Their efforts were driven by deep-rooted anti-Semitism and personal greed. Meanwhile, since the mid-1990s, a small but very connected Iranian lobby (funded, in...

    The freshly appointed chairman of a federal investigation into the Benghazi massacre is an apologist for Islamic terrorism who has a cozy relationship with Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. And to add insult to injury, at press time Tuesday evening the chairman of this new State Department panel, former Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering, was poised to participate in a panel discussion at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., on “what role the faith community can play in fighting Islamophobia.” The news comes on the heels of a new report by the Investigative Project on Terrorism that found...

    David Brock’s war against the New York Times just went nuclear — and the paper is responding with equal fury. Brock, the former right-wing journalist-turned-pro-Clinton crusader, takes aim at a top New York Times editor in a soon-to-be released book obtained by POLITICO. In the book, titled "Killing the Messenger: The Right-Wing Plot to Derail Hillary Clinton and Hijack Your Government,” Brock accuses senior politics editor and former Washington bureau chief Carolyn Ryan of helping to turn the paper into a “megaphone for conservative propaganda” by unfairly targeting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The founder of liberal watchdog groups...
