Tea Party leaders refused to accept an apology from the IRS Friday in which the agency acknowledged that it inappropriately flagged conservative groups for additional review during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status. Jenny Beth Martin, national coordinator for Tea Party Patriots, said she wants to see resignations over what she called the “disturbing, illegal and outrageous abuse of government power.”
Republican lawmakers also seized on the acknowledgment, after having complained about the suspected harassment more than a year ago. Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell called for a “government-wide review” to assure “these thuggish practices” are not in use elsewhere. House Republican Leader Eric Cantor later said the House would investigate.
Reaction was swift and harsh after Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups, acknowledged the issue at a conference Friday sponsored by the American Bar Association.
She confirmed that organizations were singled out because they included the words “tea party” or “patriot” in their applications for tax-exempt status.
In some cases, groups were asked for their list of donors, she said.

Barack Obama floats like a butterfly, even if he lacks the verbal facility to sting like a bee. He was lucky to draw the befuddled John McCain as his opponent in the 2008 presidential race. Rather than exposing Obama’s bloated ego to the ridicule that it so richly deserved, McCain decided to make nice — adding his voice to the hosanna chorus greeting the young Messiah. “And, finally, a word to Senator Obama and his supporters,” McCain said in his acceptance speech at the Republican National convention. “We’ll go at it over the next two months — you know the nature of this business — and there are big differences between us. But you have my respect and my admiration.”

The chief spokesman for Chick-fil A died early today amid the furor sparked by his boss’ biblical opposition to same-sex marriage.
The Georgia-based fast-food giant did not cite a cause of death for 60-year-old Don Perry, vice president of public relations, but local news reports said he died of a heart attack, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution says. He had worked for the fast-food giant for 29 years.
“Don was a member of our Chick-fil-A family for nearly 29 years,” the company said in a statement. “For many of you in the media, he was the spokesperson for Chick-fil-A. He was a well-respected and well-liked media executive in the Atlanta and University of Georgia communities, and we will all miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”

[Editor: CWNews endorses Senator Rick Santorum as a favorite candidate for the Iowa Caucuses. God bless America!]
Last month, Sen. Rick Santorum schooled CNN’s Candy Crowley on the subject of President Barack Obama’s appeasement of America’s enemies. Sunday, on NBC’s Meet the Press, it was David Gregory’s turn.
Like Crowley, Gregory attempted to “fact-check” Santorum by arguing that it could not possibly be “accurate” or “objective” to describe Obama’s foreign policy as “appeasement.”
In particular, he challenged Santorum to distinguish Obama’s policy on Iran from that of his predecessor, George W. Bush. (For several years, Democrats have tried to defend Obama by pointing out that the Bush administration refused to approve military strikes, either by the U.S. or by Israel.)
Santorum pointed out that Obama failed to support Iran’s democracy movement–and later added that Obama cut funding to pro-democracy programs that Bush had supported. He noted that Obama has given tacit support to Islamist political parties in Egypt and other Arab countries that oppose America and our allies.

“As far as I know, everything is still a go,” Tea Party of America organizer Charlie Gruschow told POLITICO in an email Wednesday morning, shortly after a report in The Wall Street Journal stated that she had pulled out of the rally on Saturday near Des Moines.
Palin’s trip to Iowa had renewed speculation of a presidential bid, which she’s left open as an option.

Actually, Reason TV goes for a more prosaic title with iPhone and oBama: Two Expensive New Models. Only it’s hard to tell the 2011 iPhone from the 2010 model, just as it’s difficult to tell the 2011 SOTU from its predecessor in 2010. In fact, it’s pretty easy to merge the two speeches into the same theme both used, which is to spend even more on federal government initiatives, as Ted Balaker demonstrates:
However, Eric Ostermeier at Smart Politics did a little more analysis between the two speeches and found some key differences. The biggest of these is that Obama managed to talk about the economy less this year than he did last year, even after losing a midterm election for ignoring the economy and joblessness for most of his first two years as President, emphasis mine:

You would expect the liberal blogs to do it. And they did. They took a minor verbal gaffe by Sarah Palin and blew it up in big headlines. But then the MSM started to hit it too. We posted an AP report yesterday that did just that:
Sarah Palin is drawing criticism from around the world after declaring that the United States has to stand with “our North Korean allies.”
Palin’s gaffe, made Wednesday during an interview on Glenn Beck’s syndicated radio show, was quickly corrected by her host. But it drew immediate fire from liberal bloggers, who cited it as an example of the 2008 vice presidential candidate’s lack of foreign policy expertise.
Newspapers in Asia and Europe are repeating the criticism. The Times of India says Palin “did it again,” while London’s Daily Mail says she “may want to brush up on her geography.”
I was incredulous that they believed this to be a story. At the very end they had to begrudgingly acknowledge that it was clearly no big deal:

RENO, Nev. — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was back in Nevada on Monday to help rev up the Tea Party Express for the stretch drive of a coast-to-coast campaign determined to throw out Sen. Harry Reid and his Democratic allies in Congress.
Palin headlined a rally outside county GOP headquarters in Reno to kick off the 15-day bus tour hoping to capitalize on government discontent and unify conservatives two weeks away from the off-year election.
Hundreds of people gathered hours before the 10 a.m. rally was to begin.
Paul and Lorraine Walter made the six-hour trip from Grants Pass, Ore., where they are backing Republican challenger Art Robinson against veteran Democratic Rep. Peter DeFazio.
“We were here real early in the morning to see Sarah, ” Lorraine Walter said. “We believe people are so fed up with everything in Washington, so we going to go to the polls and have a big victory.”

Fox News host Glenn Beck’s TV show has been breaking records — attracting more than 3 million viewers a night ̬ since it burst on the scene in January.
He’s the only author ever to have a No. 1 New York Times best-seller in the fiction, nonfiction and paperback fiction categories.
His syndicated radio show airs on more than 400 stations, his Web site and Web casts are thriving, and his live comedy performances are jam-packed.
Why, and how, is Glenn Beck resonating so powerfully with a huge swath of the American people?
Newsmax magazine takes an in-depth look at the “Happy Warrior” Glenn Beck and reveals how he rose to prominence — and has become such an enemy of the Obama White House and the establishment media.
This insider report on Glenn Beck includes an exclusive, wide-ranging interview with the media sensation who befuddles critics, rallies voters and draws back the curtain on low deeds in high places.
In his interview with Newsmax, Beck reveals his worst fear: that a “Reichstag moment” — a catastrophic event may soon take place so that the powers that be in Washington can end the Republic and our cherished Constitution.
Beck insists he’s not fear mongering — but he is personally afraid for the United States.

Earlier this month, Rasmussen had former two-term Governor Jerry Brown edging Republican Meg Whitman, 43/41, with neither candidate showing much momentum. In less than a month, Rasmussen shows a ten-point move by Whitman and a potentially commanding lead, while Brown appears to be fading. With leaners, the news gets even worse for Brown:
The tie is broken for now, with Republican Meg Whitman, coming off last weekend’s state GOP Convention, moving out to her best showing yet in the race to be the next governor of California.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in California finds Whitman earning 48% support, while Democrat Jerry Brown picks up 40% of the vote. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and six percent (6%) are undecided. …
Early this month, Brown was slightly ahead 43% to 41% in a contest that has been neck and neck since last September. Brown, currently the state’s attorney general, bounced briefly ahead immediately following the state Democratic Convention in April, but the race tightened again in June after Whitman’s Republican primary win.
Being from California, I can attest to the fact that a state convention isn’t going to give a candidate a ten-point bounce. It’s good mainly for some earned media, but the candidates get chosen in primary contests in the Golden State, not conventions. Since the primary took place in June, the Republican convention last weekend was mainly aimed at organizing, and not the kind of candidate boosting that grabs headlines and moves polls.

June 26: President Obama and British Prime Minister Cameron talk at the conclusion of the G20 conference in Ontario, Canada.
At first glance, the similarities between President Obama and his new British counterpart, David Cameron, are unmistakable: Both leaders, who appeared together for the first time Tuesday at the White House, are young and charismatic and swept into office as reform candidates.
But that’s where the similarities end.
Obama has presided over what critics been described as an unprecedented era of government spending since he took office 18 months ago, from the $862 billion stimulus package to the nearly trillion-dollar health care system overhaul, while Cameron has embarked on an ambitious austerity path to dismantle the bloated bureaucracy that his predecessors built.

Get rid of the old, cowardly corrupt guard in the GOP, Barber is the way. He’s in a run off in in two weeks. He’s in an uphill battle to beat the establishment corrupt GOP candidate. Rick Barber is a small business owner, a Marine Corps Veteran with military pride and believes we ought to pull out of that collective negation of humanity, the UN. He needs our help. He needs money, volunteers,support. Send this great American to Congress. I am donating today. This man needs to be in Washington!
Rick Barber is my idea of an ideal candidate.We can, we must make it happen. I first met, interviewed and endorsed Barber at CPAC here and I have been following him and supporting him since. His position on the Ground Zero Islamic supremacist mosque is brilliant.
