IRS begins an audit of an anti-Obamacare filmmaker

Working for the Democratic Party: The IRS has begun an audit of an anti-Obamacare filmmaker, even as it proceeds with audits of other consevatives.

Logan Clements, producer of “Sick and Sicker: ObamaCare Canadian Style,” announced via press release Tuesday that he is being audited for the first time ever. The news comes one month after the conservative Breitbart News announced that it, too, was being audited and that the action was probably politically motivated. Mr. Clements‘ movie makes the case that Obamacare will eventually lead to socialized medicine like Canada.

Remember, Obama claimed there wasn’t a “smidgeon of corruption” surrounding the IRS. And of course, we all believe everything this Democratic politician says!

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

    So many public critics of the Obama administration have been audited that it merits an independent investigation. The media focuses too much on the Tea Party, because Democrats have dehumanized them to the point that they don’t care what happened, but the reality is that it was all non-Democrat groups that were targeted for persecution, people associated with any of these groups or their leaders were also targeted, and the scary part is that the targets chosen for persecution go several degrees of separation out to include business associates.

    This other story making the rounds today shows the extent that the Obama administration is currently going to in order to prevent people from exercising their right to free speech and association.

    IMO, these actions are taking place because the Obama administration and the Democrat party view the world through a social justice paradigm where Republicans and white people in general are scapegoated and blamed for all of society’s ills past and present. And when you demonize people by saying they are responsible for all of the evil in the world currently and going back to the dawn of time, the people who believe these racist stereotypes not only don’t care what Obama and the Democrats do to them but cheer them on.
