Congressman Andy Barr (R KY): Holding the IRS Accountable
Knowing of your interest in the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) alleged systematic targeting of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, I wanted to send you an update regarding the subsequent congressional actions taken to hold IRS officials accountable. I hope you find this update informative.
In February 2012, the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform began investigating allegations that the IRS systematically targeted and unfairly scrutinized conservative groups and organizations seeking 501(c)(4) tax-exempt status. As you may know, Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code permits incorporation of organizations that meet certain criteria and focus on advancing “social welfare” goals. Organizations granted 501(c)(4) status are not subject to federal income tax. However, documents leaked from the IRS indicate that senior IRS officials, and specifically Director of IRS Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner, were actively discriminating against applications from conservative organizations by obstructing and or delaying the 501(c)(4) approval of these groups.
I believe the American people deserve fair and equal treatment from their government regardless of their political views. The IRS failed to live up to this standard when it targeted these groups based on their names and ideology. In response to these revelations, committees of the U.S. House of Representatives have painstakingly gathered information about the IRS’s targeting. Committee investigators have interviewed dozens of IRS and Treasury Department employees, analyzed hundreds of thousands of documents, issued two reports, and held multiple hearings on the scandal. While we know a lot about the IRS’s misconduct, key questions remain unanswered.
For these reasons, on May 9, 2014, I voted in favor of holding Ms. Lerner in contempt of Congress for her refusal to comply with a subpoena issued by the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Ms. Lerner’s testimony remains critical to the Committee’s investigation and I believe her cooperation is an important step toward moving this forward and restoring the American people’s confidence in the IRS. Our citizens must be reassured that government officials are held accountable when they abuse their power and betray public trust by depriving Americans of their Constitutional right to participate in our democracy, regardless of their political beliefs. Please know that I will continue to monitor the ongoing investigation in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
I hope you will never hesitate to contact my office if we can ever be of assistance. For example, if you are facing a challenge working with a federal agency or would like to get together with me or my staff, please be in touch with my office in Lexington or visit us during the regular office hours we hold in your county.

Matt Bevin: There is a “hunger for change” in Kentucky
Matt Bevin’s Response to the Glenn Beck Interview (above)
Did you hear me on the radio with Glenn Beck this morning? He understands the importance of this race for our country. He called it “game changing” and I agree with him!
I couldn’t believe it when Glenn said, “Matt Bevin is the closest thing to a founder I’ve ever met in a candidate, with the possible exception of Mike Lee.”
Wow! I was moved to hear him make such a comparison. What an inspirational thing for Glenn to say. I am humbled to be put in the same category with someone as principled as Senator Mike Lee, but to be compared to our Founding Fathers… was quite simply overwhelming.
I am honored that Glenn thinks that way about me, but it’s not just me. It’s the patriots, like you and me, across this land rising up and taking a stand for what we believe in. We are at a pivotal time in our nation’s history and I am compelled to do all I can to restore this nation to greatness.

What Rand Paul Is Really Saying About Voter ID
“There was a time in our history when the vote was suppressed. Actually, it was mostly by Democrats back then. But for some reason, [many Americans] think Republicans are a part of this historical suppression of the African-American vote. They think this is just another ploy. So that is the perception. I don’t think that is the truth at all. But because it is perceived that way, we need to be aware of people’s feelings.”

But I still can’t decide between Ted and Rand.
Bill O’Reilly on America’s Race Problem – LISTEN TO THIS !!!
I first became aware of the ratio of Blacks to Whites committing crimes in the late 1960s. I was a darkroom technician at a commercial photo lab owned by a deputy sheriff. The owner had the contract to develop and print all of the “mug shots” for a large county sheriff’s department. This was my job the first thing every morning. I was totally amazed by the number of crimes committed by Blacks as opposed to Whites !!!
I understand that not all people initially arrested and photographed are guilty – but even if HALF are innocent, the ratio is STILL THE SAME !!!
IT IS AMAZING, AND NO ONE HAS HAD THE GUTS TO SAY IT UNTIL BILL O’REILLY !!!
Government Opening Free Gas Stations in Poor Neighborhoods
In the words of Nancy Pelosi – “We have to pass it to find out what is in it”.
Look what’s in it.
The $2 billion-a-year program aims to distribute40 million gallons of free gasoline each year through 70 new gas stations constructed in major metropolitan areas. The Department of Health and Human Services (DHS) will be responsible for operating the network, whose first station opened yesterday in Detroit.
“It’s not something we’re publicizing very much, for obvious reasons,” explains Dori Salcido, assistant DHS secretary for public affairs. “But under the law we are well within our rights to offer this service, and we think it’s good public policy.
“How are people supposed to get to the doctor’s office if they don’t have gas in their cars? Health insurance is worthless if you can’t make your appointment. This is just another fine example of government stepping in and solving big problems.”
No Gas for You
Although some developing oil-rich nations like Venezuela and Indonesia subsidize gasoline for the poor, the practice has never before been tried in the United States. The plans are proving controversial with some taxpayers who are loathe to see their money go to subsidize others.
“So basically I’m being punished for not living in the ghetto,” says Colin Blair, a white person from the affluent Detroit
suburb of Farmington Hills. “I have three kids and a mortgage. Life isn’t cheap for me either. I could use some free gasoline too.”
An investigation into the station’s operations, however, reveals that Blair is unlikely to be able to use the service.� Supposedly access to the station is determined by income,” says Ebony Jackson, manager of the first Obama station. “But it’s pretty unrealistic to do an income check on each and every driver. So what we do is basically let all the black people pump for free, and charge all the white people the market rate.”

Sen. Rand Paul Opposes the Nomination of David Barron
President Obama has nominated David Barron, a Harvard law professor and former acting assistant attorney general, to a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.
While he was an official in the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel, Mr. Barron wrote at least two legal memos justifying the execution of American citizens abroad without a trial.
On April 30, I wrote to the Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, urging him to delay this nomination, pending a court-ordered disclosure of the first memo I knew about. Since that letter, I have learned more. The American Civil Liberties Union sent a letter to all senators on May 6, noting that in the view of the Senate Intelligence Committee chairwoman, Dianne Feinstein, “there are at least eleven OLC opinions on the targeted killing or drone program.” It has not been established whether Mr. Barron wrote all those memos, but we do know that his controversial classified opinions provided the President with a legal argument and justification to target an American citizen for execution without a trial by jury or due process.
Since then, I’ve read David Barron’s memos concerning the legal justification for killing an American citizen overseas without a trial or legal representation, and I am not satisfied.
While the President forbids me from discussing what is in the memos, I can tell you what is not in the memos.
There is no valid legal precedent to justify the killing of an American citizen not engaged in combat. In fact, one can surmise as much because the legal question at hand has never been adjudicated. Therefore, I shall not only oppose the nomination of David Barron, but will filibuster.

Senator Rand Paul Plans to Object to Federal Reserve Nominations
On Monday, I issued the following letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announcing my intent to object to the pending nominations to the Federal Reserve System unless S. 209, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, is also considered.
The American people have a right to know what this institution is doing with the nation’s money supply. The Federal Reserve does not need prolonged secrecy-it needs to be audited, and my bipartisan Federal Reserve Transparency Act will do just that.
The text of that letter can be found HERE. My entire statement can be found HERE.

Sign in Indiana storefront
“WE WOULD RATHER DO BUSINESS WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA,
NANCY PELOSI, HARRY REID, ALL THE ELITES OF CONGRESS,
THE MASS MEDIA, AND HOLLYWOOD, THAN WITH
ONE CONSERVATIVE AMERICAN!”
This sign was prominently displayed in the window of a business in Whiting, Indiana.
You are probably outraged at the thought of such an inflammatory statement. However, we are a society which holds Freedom of Speech as perhaps our greatest liberty; and after all, it is just a sign.
You may ask, what kind of business would dare post such a sign?

Yours for a FREE AMERICA,
“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” – Thomas Jefferson

And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
