When did this all start?

  • March 31, 2010: At 12:30 pm, National Treasury Employees Union President Colleen Kelly logged into the White House for a personal appointment with President Obama. The NTEU is the 150,000 union that Obama gave enormous discretion over the activities of the IRS, right down to deciding who is allowed a Blackberry. The union’s PAC endorsed President Obama in both 2008 and 2012, and gave hundreds of thousands of dollars in the 2010 and 2012 election cycles to anti-Tea Party candidates.
  • April 1, 2010: EOT manager, Steve Grodnitzky, initiated Sensitive Case Reports (SCR) for Tea Party cases. The EOT manager answered directly to the EO division’s director … Lois Lerner.

Who is Lois Lerner?

  • Described as “apolitical” in mainstream press coverage of the IRS scandal, Lois’ husband’s law firm hosted a voter registration organizing event for the Obama presidential campaign, praised President Obama’s policy work, and had one of its partners appointed by Obama to a key ambassadorship.
  • Last month, Judicial Watch obtained documents that proved Lerner and officials at DOJ had discussed how they could arrange to have conservative political activists thrown in jail.
  • On June 26, 2011, Lerner personally approved Malik Obama’s tax-exempt request, just one month after he applied on behalf of his shady charity. Lerner simultaneously approved Obama’s half-brother for retroactive tax exempt status to cover the 27 months prior during which he had been soliciting donations illegally.

Main Stream Media Bias Is Real

Below are the headlines and first paragraphs from two news sources about the same story. One is by LifeNews, an unabashedly anti-abortion news aggregator serving the pro-life community. The other is by Associated Press, an allegedly unbiased world news aggregator allegedly serving American voters. I’m passing this on for two reasons. One, it’s good news for the unborn. Two, it highlights in a stark and blatant way just how left-biased Associated Press really is.

May 12, 2014 by LifeNews: “Kansas Wins Court Battle to De-Fund Planned Parenthood Abortion Business”

Several states in the last couple of years have taken steps to yank taxpayer funding from the Planned Parenthood abortion business. In each case, the abortion giant has taken the state to court in an attempt to force taxpayers to finance its grisly trade.

Planned Parenthood has admitted defeat in its lawsuit against Kansas after its state legislature dropped funding. Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri dropped its legal challenge Friday. The organization filed a brief stipulation of dismissal Friday in U.S. District Court in Kansas.

May 9, 2014 by Associated Press: “Planned Parenthood drops Kansas funding challenge”

Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri dropped its legal challenge Friday to a Kansas law that stripped two of its Kansas clinics of federal money for family planning, leaving uncertain the impact to its low-income patients in Wichita and Hays who depend upon them for reproductive health care services.

The organization filed a brief stipulation of dismissal Friday in U.S. District Court in Kansas.

Later in the stories, both news aggregators explained that the Kansas law was about Title X federal family planning funding.

LifeNews said PP became ineligible “when the state enacted an annually-renewed proviso that such money go to full-service public health clinics and hospitals.”

The AP version was cleverly written to give the distinct impression that Kansas law-makers just wanted to stop low income people getting any help from Title X moneys.

The Kansas law actually INCREASED the availability of services by shunting the money ONLY to full-service facilities. Note: Planned Parenthood does not do mammograms.

Here’s how AP covered up the reality of the effect of the Kansas law and pandered to poor widdle PP, the organization that SUED Kansas for trying to ensure low income women HAD access to mammograms.

“We take seriously our duty to defend Kansas law against legal challenges,” Attorney General Derek Schmidt said in a written statement. “This law was successfully defended.”

His statement did not address what provisions, if any, the state was making to provide low-cost reproductive services that had been funded through federal planning dollars at the clinics. His office referred that question to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, which did not immediately respond to phone messages.

Did you catch this? The AG’s statement about Kansas winning the court case did not include information about the contents of the law that was under challenge.

  • Oh my. How HORRIBLE of the man to only speak to the actual news of the day.
  • And THEN that meany-pants AG, who is no doubt a woman-hating Repukelican, told the AP reporter to do her own homework. The NERVE!
  • And THEN that HORRIBLE Kansas Department of Health and Environment did not IMMEDIATELY respond! 

I mean … what could they POSSIBLY have to do that would be more important than waiting breathlessly by the phone 24-7 hoping for a chance to explain public information to AP reporters who are too lazy to GOOGLE?!
