More Proof The National Republican Senatorial Committee Funded Racist, Anti-Tea Party, Anti-McDaniel Ads In Mississippi

More Proof The NRSC Funded Racist Anti-Tea Party Anti-McDaniel Ads In Mississippi – Gateway Pundit

Last week we learned this…

Former GOP Governor Haley Barbour Was Behind Racist Anti-Tea Party Pro-Cochran Ads In Mississippi

The former governor’s group paid for the racist radio ads.

.

.
FOX News reporter Ainsley Earhardt broke the news on Hannity that that the racist, anti-Tea Party pro-Cochran ads that played on black radio stations in Mississippi were paid for by former Republican governor Haley Barbour’s super-PAC.

Then we found out this…

The NRSC is linked to the racist anti-Tea Party ads in Mississippi.

.
………………….

.
And, now there’s more evidence the NRSC funded these racist anti-Tea Party ads…

Got.News has more proof that the NRSC funded the racist anti-Tea Party ads in Mississippi against conservative Chris McDaniel.

Gotnews.com has exclusively obtained another “All Citizens for Mississippi” radio ad from conservative media consultant Rick Shaftan, who stands by his allegation that these ads were paid for by media buyer Jon Ferrell at National Media of Alexandria, Virginia using funds provided by the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC).

The newly-surfaced 90 second ad features Arthur L. Siggers, who identifies himself in the ad as pastor of the Mt. Olive Baptist Church and makes similar racially-charged accusations against U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel to the ad featuring Bishop Ronnie Crudup of New Horizon Church International that Gotnews.com reported on Monday.

Leftist Corruption Update: Lois Lerner Warned IRS Employees To Hide Information From Congress

GOP: Lerner Warned IRS Employees To Hide Information From Congress – Washington Times

Just as the IRS tea party targeting scandal was erupting, Lois G. Lerner warned colleagues to “be cautious” about what information they put in emails because it could end up being turned over to Congress, according to an email message released Wednesday.

.

.
The 2013 email exchange between Ms. Lerner and fellow employees at the Internal Revenue Service also says that instant message conversations were probably never stored and weren’t checked during open-records requests – even though they also fell under the law requiring electronic records to be stored.

“I was cautioning folks about email and how we have had several occasions where Congress has asked for emails and there has been an electronic search for responsive emails — so we need to be cautious about what we say in emails,” Ms. Lerner wrote in an April 9, 2013, message.

She went on to ask whether the instant message communications were stored automatically. When a tech staffer said no but the records could be stored if employees copied them, she replied, “Perfect.”

“Why did it take us this long to get these emails? We’ve been after this for six months,” said Rep. Jim Jordan, the Ohio Republican who raised the emails with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen at a hearing Wednesday.

Mr. Jordan said the emails were part of a pattern of Ms. Lerner trying to hide her activities, following on the crash of her computer hard drive two years earlier, which erased thousands of messages.

Mr. Koskinen said he hadn’t seen the email before but questioned the connections Mr. Jordan was drawing.

“I don’t see anything in here where Lois Lerner says, ‘Wow, I got rid of my earlier emails and now I’ve got to check on it,’” the commissioner said.

Ms. Lerner’s email warning to colleagues to be careful about what they said in electronic communications issued less than two weeks after the IRS internal auditor shared a draft report with the agency accusing it of targeting tea party and other conservative groups.

A month after the email, Ms. Lerner would plant a question at a conference to reveal the scandal, just before the inspector general’s report was made public.

Ms. Lerner’s email was turned over to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee last week, more than a year after lawmakers sought it as part of their investigation into the IRS targeting.

Republicans said the email shows Ms. Lerner was aware that Congress was investigating the agency and that she was preparing to intentionally hide agency discussions from lawmakers.

Ms. Lerner’s email record has become a major scandal in and of itself after the IRS revealed that her computer hard drive crashed in 2011, causing the agency to lose thousands of her messages.

The IRS tried to recover some of the messages by asking others on the email chain to dig through their mailboxes, but the agency acknowledged that some messages may be permanently lost.

Some Republicans have questioned whether the IRS took enough steps to try to recover the emails from the hard drive in 2011.

The head of the National Archives testified to Congress that the IRS likely broke federal records laws by not storing Ms. Lerner’s emails properly.

IRS policy was to print out emails that constituted official records, but it’s unclear whether that ever happened.

Mr. Koskinen testified to Congress that he believed Ms. Lerner had printed out some emails. But Ms. Lerner’s attorney, William W. Taylor III, told the Politico online magazine that she didn’t know she was required print out emails and therefore did not do so.

On Wednesday, Mr. Taylor released a statement saying that “is not entirely accurate” and blamed a “misunderstanding.”

“During her tenure as director of Exempt Organizations, she did print out some emails, although not every one of the thousands she sent and received,” Mr. Taylor said.

“The facts are that Ms. Lerner did not destroy any records subject to the Federal Records Act, she did not cause the computer assigned to her to fail, and she made every effort to recover the files on the computer,” the lawyer said.

Obama-Caused Border Crisis Update: 300,000 More Illegal Alien Children On The Way

Shock, ‘En-Route’: 300,000 More Kids Already On The Way – Pat Dollard

.

.
If each one of them produces 4 kids, that’s 1.5 million new Democrat voters. Obama won last election by about 4 million.

.

.
Excerpted from WOAI: “Everyone is being screened and receiving medical care.”

The issue burst into prominent last month when Newsradio 1200 WOAI revealed to the world that a Central American child at the Lackland AFB shelter was diagnosed with Swine Flu.

Since then, young people in the shelters have been diagnosed with scabies, lice, and two more cases of H1N1 flu have been spotted in a shelter in the Rio Grande Valley.

“There are FEMA and Coast Guard doctors down there assisting,” Moran told Newsradio 1200 WOAI.

Moran said there was concern not only fro the immigrants and for the communities the immigrants are being sent to, but also for the Border Patrol agents who have to deal with the flood of immigrants.

“The numbers are still overwhelming and we are sending people everywhere just to get them processed, just due to the huge numbers,” Moran said,.

In fact, one source told Newsradio 1200 WOAI as many as 300,000 Central American immigrants are now ‘en route’ to the United States through Mexico, and the Department of Defense has asked military bases around the country to find 180 barracks, holding centers, and other facilities to house the flood which is not expected to stop coming any time soon.

Ted Cruz On Obama: “Playing Pool Is More Important Than Going To See The Humanitarian Crisis He Created” – Gateway Pundit

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke out tonight on Barack Obama refusal to secure the border or even to visit the border. The Texas conservative had this to say about the Commander in Chief.

“The cynicism of President Obama seems to know no bounds. He’s in Texas tonight. He’s going to two major fundraisers… Apparently he doesn’t have time to go and see the border. He doesn’t have time to see the children who are suffering because of his failed policies. Earlier he was playing pool. Apparently playing a game of pool is a higher priority to this president than it would be to go and see the humanitarian crisis he’s created.”

Dem. Rep. Rips Obama: ‘Aloof,’ ‘Bizarre,’ And ‘Detached’ – Weekly Standard

Democratic congressman Henry Cuellar ripped President Obama for being “aloof” and “detached” by not visiting the Texas border to see first hand the immigration crisis. Cuellar made the comments on MSNBC:

.

.
“He’s so close to the border. And let me say this: when I saw, and I hate to use the word bizarre, but under the circumstances, when he is shown playing pool in Colorado, drinking a beer, and he can’t even go 242 miles to the Texas border, and plus, if he doesn’t want to go down to the border, there’s the Air Force Base where HHS is holding some of the young kids from the border. He could at least make that trip to San Antonio, but again, border community leaders wants to see him down there on the border, and I think the optics and the substance of it is that he should show up at the border,” said Cuellar.

And he had some advice for the White House. “If they are worried about putting a face, the president’s face, to this human crisis, humanitarian crisis, I think it’s worse if he doesn’t even show up. Either way, he’s going to be tied into this humanitarian crisis. he either can roll up his sleeves and go down to the border, or he can just look aloof and detached and not go to the border, send surrogates down there, and say that he’s got everything under control.”

He adds, “It Just floored me, because if he’s saying he’s too busy to go to the border but you have time to drink beer, play pool.”

The president was in Colorado last night – drinking beer and playing pool.

Analyst: Upwards Of 300 U.S. Border Agents Under Investigation For Corruption

300 Border Agents Under Investigation For Corruption – Conservative Tribune

It seems like every single day we find out something else that has gone wrong on our border with Mexico. From the massive influx of illegal immigrant children to cases of extreme violence, the situation on the border seems to be rapidly deteriorating. It’s practically a war zone down there.

.

.
The images we’ve seen have been shocking, and they include documentation of harm to law enforcement and border patrol by the illegals who are trying to cross into our country.

But it seems that we have an even bigger problem than massive numbers of undocumented immigrants streaming across the border. Apparently, many of our own border patrol agents are adding to the chaos.

Newsmax reports:

Border analyst James Phelps, a professor at Angelo State University in Texas who reviewed the data, estimated that as many as 300 border officers are under investigation for corruption.

Phelps said that having a corrupted official with access to law enforcement databases creates more opportunities for drug cartels or human traffickers to pay off other officers.

“How do you corrupt someone like that? It’s real easy,” he told the newspaper. “You offer them more money in a weekend than they make in an entire year. If you can get a hold of a person’s driver’s license, you can find out everything – the works.

“If the cartels can identify an agent by name and find out where they live, they can come and make an offer. Take our money and turn a blind eye, or we kill your mom. Down in Mexico, the cartels have no problem doing that, and that’s where you have a lot of agents fail.”

While declining to discuss specific cases in the records, ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen said: “ICE agents and officers are held to the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct. The agency does not tolerate misconduct, and reports of any such actions are swiftly investigated and dealt with appropriately.”

The Times said Customs and Border Protection officials didn’t respond to messages seeking comment.

Computer misuse at ICE and CBP “largely stemmed from improper access to electronic law-enforcement records,” according to the Times.

There was one instance in which investigators were informed about an official using his or her position to “conduct queries for friends and relatives engaged in criminal activity.”

The same report included a “substantiated” FBI special agent’s accusation that a credible witness was accessing “sensitive law enforcement information in order to warn friends and relatives of impending law enforcement activity.”

Although the redacted material in the report obscured the scope of corruption on the border, the violations included “improper entry by alien” and “bringing in or harboring certain aliens,” as well as fraud.

You can read more about the agents under investigation here. We simply cannot allow drug cartels to have so much control over our border and the people who are supposed to be guarding it. A long term solution to this problem must be reached, and FAST. The longer we wait, the worse the situation will become. And before we know it, drug cartels will have gained even more power and our country may never be able to recover.

Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter if you agree that this situation has gotten out of control and something needs to be done now.

Federal Government Made $100B In Improper Payments To Unentitled Recipients

Government Made $100B In Improper Payments – Associated Press

By its own estimate, the government made about $100 billion in payments last year to people who may not have been entitled to receive them – tax credits to families that didn’t qualify, unemployment benefits to people who had jobs and medical payments for treatments that might not have been necessary.

.
…………

.
Congressional investigators say the figure could be even higher.

The Obama administration has reduced the amount of improper payments since they peaked in 2010. Still, estimates from federal agencies show that some are wasting big money at a time when Congress is squeezing agency budgets and looking to save more.

“Nobody knows exactly how much taxpayer money is wasted through improper payments, but the federal government’s own astounding estimate is more than half a trillion dollars over the past five years,” said Rep. John Mica, R-Fla. “The fact is, improper payments are staggeringly high in programs designed to help those most in need – children, seniors and low-income families.”

Mica chairs the House Oversight subcommittee on government operations. The subcommittee is holding a hearing on improper payments Wednesday afternoon.

Each year, federal agencies are required to estimate the amount of improper payments they issue. They include overpayments, underpayments, payments to the wrong recipient and payments that were made without proper documentation.

Some improper payments are the result of fraud, while others are unintentional, caused by clerical errors or mistakes in awarding benefits without proper verification.

In 2013, federal agencies made $97 billion in overpayments, according to agency estimates. Underpayments totaled $9 billion.

The amount of improper payments has steadily dropped since 2010, when it peaked at $121 billion.

The Obama administration has stepped up efforts to measure improper payments, identify the cause and develop plans to reduce them, said Beth Cobert, deputy director of the White House budget office. Agencies recovered more than $22 billion in overpayments last year.

“We have strengthened accountability and transparency, saving the American people money while improving the fiscal responsibility of federal programs,” Cobert said in a statement ahead of Wednesday’s hearing. “We are pleased with this progress, but know that we have more work to do in this area.”

However, a new report by the Government Accountability Office questions the accuracy of agency estimates, suggesting that the real tally could be higher. The GAO is the investigative arm of Congress.

“The federal government is unable to determine the full extent to which improper payments occur and reasonably assure that appropriate actions are taken to reduce them,” Beryl H. Davis, director of financial management at the GAO, said in prepared testimony for Wednesday’s hearing.

Davis said some agencies don’t develop estimates for programs that could be susceptible to improper payments. For example, the Health and Human Services Department says it cannot force states to help it develop estimates for the cash welfare program known as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. The program is administered by the states.

The largest sources of improper payments are government health care programs, according to agency estimates. Medicare’s various health insurance programs for older Americans accounted for $50 billion in improper payments in the 2013 budget year, far exceeding any other program.

Most of the payments were deemed improper because they were issued without proper documentation, said Shantanu Agrawal, a deputy administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. In some cases, the paperwork didn’t verify that services were medically necessary.

“Payments deemed `improper’ under these circumstances tend to be the result of documentation and coding errors made by the provider as opposed to payments made for inappropriate claims,” Agrawal said in prepared testimony for Wednesday’s hearing.

Among other programs with large amounts of improper payments:

– The earned income tax credit, which provides payments to the working poor in the form of tax refunds. Last year, improper payments totaled $14.5 billion. That’s 24 percent of all payments under the program.

The EITC is one of the largest anti-poverty programs in the U.S., providing $60.3 billion in payments last year. Eligibility depends on income and family size, making it complicated to apply for the credit – and difficult to enforce, said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.

“EITC eligibility depends on items that the IRS cannot readily verify through third-party information reporting, including marital status and the relationship and residency of children,” Koskinen told a House committee in May. “In addition, the eligible population for the EITC shifts by approximately one-third each year, making it difficult for the IRS to use prior-year data to assist in validating compliance.”

– Medicaid, the government health care program for the poor. Last year, improper payments totaled $14.4 billion.

Medicaid, which is run jointly by the federal government and the states, has seen a steady decline in improper payments since 2010, when they peaked at $23 billion.

The program is expanding under President Barack Obama’s health law.

– Unemployment insurance, a joint federal-state program that provides temporary benefits to laid-off workers. Amount of improper payments last year: $6.2 billion, or 9 percent of all payments.

The Labor Department said most overpayments went to people who continued to get benefits after returning to work, or who didn’t meet state requirements to look for work while they were unemployed. Others were ineligible for benefits because they voluntarily quit their jobs or were fired.

– Supplemental Security Income, a disability program for the poor run by the Social Security Administration. Amount of improper payments: $4.3 billion, or 8 percent of all payments.

Social Security’s much larger retirement and disability programs issued $2.4 billion in improper payments, according to agency estimates. Those programs provided more than $770 billion in benefits, so improper payments accounted for less than 1 percent.

Illegal Alien Minors Being Held For Placement In U.S. Admit To Engaging In Torture And Murder

Illegal Unaccompanied Minors Being Held For Placement In U.S. Admit To Engaging In Torture And Murder – Townhall

.

.
Despite Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson vowing to “stem the tide” of unaccompanied illegal minors across the southern border with Mexico, thousands more are expected to enter the United States by the end of the year. With the system being overwhelmed, Border Patrol agents are concerned about minors who have admitted to being MS-13 members, a brutal street gang from El Salvador that has been successful in infiltrating American communities. Agents are also concerned about minors who have committed acts like torture and murder in their home countries before heading north to the United States.

“We have six minors in Nogales who have admitted to killing and doing grievous bodily injuries. One admitted to killing as young as eight years old,” an agent tells Townhall anonymously for fear of losing his job for speaking out. “They are being held for placement in the U.S.”

By U.S. legal standards many gang members operating in Central American countries and traveling north are classified as minors due to being under the age of 18. However, many young males are actively engaged in violent cartel and criminal activity, yet are treated as children when processed through the Department of Human Services or Department of Homeland Security systems.

“But remember, this is a ‘humanitarian crisis.’ They are just kids,” he said in a frustrated and sarcastic tone. “They are MS-13 gang members. They’ve done everything from torture to murder. They act as teenage ‘enforcers.'”
