Jenny Beth Martin: IRS Targets Tea Party Because President 'Disagrees with Us'

On Monday following remarks at the New York Meeting, Jenny Beth Martin, president of Tea Party Patriots said that the source of the IRS scandal could go all the way to the White House.

Tea Party Patriots recently filed a suit against the IRS asking the court for the “release of documents shedding light on the agency’s proposal for burdensome regulations for 501(c)(4) citizens groups, and the roles played by former IRS official Lois Lerner and other Administration officials in developing the regulations.”

Martin says that it has been almost a year since the Treasury Inspector General admitted that "100 percent of Tea Party groups were indeed targeted," and that targeting continues today.

"Just last week we learned that 10 percent of Tea Party donors were actually individually audited by the IRS," says Martin. "In this year time what we have seen is the IRS continues to stonewall Congress, there’s been no accountability…they are not cooperating with Freedom of Information requests, and the targeting continues."

Martin went on to claim, "I think we know why it [targeting] started, because the president disagrees with us. We don’t know how high up in the White House it goes."

Caddell on Benghazi: Press Has Failed the Country, Facts Will Put Obama in Deep Trouble

Following May's presentation of the New York Meeting on Monday, former Democrat pollster and insider Pat Caddell called Benghazi the "biggest cover-up since Watergate" and said that the key to getting to the bottom of the Benghazi scandal is to "do what we did in Watergate, which is gather the facts … not go out and … hammer a political position."

Caddell claimed that should the recently established select committee on Benghazi do what he had suggested, "This President and the Democrats will be in deep trouble. Democrats can’t afford to stand against the truth."

The "bad guy" in the Benghazi scandal, according to Caddell, is the press, who have "failed the country."

Pence Blasts Federalized Common Core, Touts States as the 'Cure'

Gov. Mike Pence (R-IN), touted Indiana’s success as a testing ground for conservative policies, and said that "the cure really, for what ails this country is going to come more from our nation’s state capitols than it ever will from our nation’s capitol."

Pence claimed the reasons for the policy successes of Indiana is "because we've been producing common-sense, solution-oriented Republican leadership now for nearly a decade in Indiana, the results speak for themselves."

Indiana being the first state to withdraw from the mandates of Common Core lends credence to that claim. "I believe education is a state and local function," explains Pence, who helped to create state-wide standards to replace Common Core. "I don’t know if they’re perfect, but they’re better than Common Core."

Daniel Pipes: Obama Administration Focused on Minutiae While Middle East Threats Grow

At Monday’s New York Meeting, in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Daniel Pipes said that the Obama administration is focused on the “minutiae of the Israeli/Palestinian relations, say for example the electricity grids in Jerusalem” to the exclusion of more pressing and potentially explosive issues.

Pipes listed “a brutal civil war in Syria, an Egyptian economy close to collapse, the Iranians sprinting toward nuclear weapons” as critical components in a robust Middle East policy, that are just not being serviced by the US. Instead, President Obama is focused on “what arguably is the least dynamic and interesting problem in the region, and one that’s simply irrelevant to most issues today.”

On the prospect of Iran developing nuclear weapons, Pipes says that Israel “sees this as an existential issue, and might well undertake an attack on the Iranian nuclear facilities even without American support.”

Daniel Pipes, president of the Middle East Forum and publisher of the Middle East Quarterly has spent his professional career researching and documenting the Middle East.
