Leftist Governor Hangs Chinese Flag Over Washington State Capitol – Patriots Pull It Down (Video)

Patriots Remove Communist Flag From Washington State Capitol – The Examiner

.

.
On Saturday, a small group of activists carrying yellow Gadsden flags now associated with the Tea Party, assisted by a trooper from the Washington State Police, removed the flag of Communist China from the state capitol building in Olympia, Washington. The flag, according to reports, was placed between the U.S. flag and the state flag in honor of a meeting with Chinese Ambassador Cui Tiankai, the News Commenter said.

“That’s an officer I can support,” one person said of the trooper providing assistance. The officer remained unidentified in the video, but one activist said he was an Oath Keeper.

“Whoo,” one person cheered as the red Chinese flag began to be pulled down. Others stood on either side of the flagpoles, dipping their flags as the red banner was brought down. But as one commenter on YouTube noted, one activist incorrectly dipped the U.S. flag, something that goes against protocol.

.

.
According to the flag code, “no other flag or pennant should be placed above or, if on the same level, to the right of the flag of the United States of America, except during church services conducted by naval chaplains at sea, when the church pennant may be flown above the flag during church services for the personnel of the Navy.” Additionally, the code says that flags of the United Nations or other national or international flags shall not be placed “equal, above, or in a position of superior prominence or honor to, or in place of, the flag of the United States…”

“Looks like Governor Jay Inslee needs to resign from office,” one commenter said at YouTube. Another suggested the Chinese flag be burned.

“We now know where the loyalties of our liberal, communist loving Governor are,” one person said on Facebook. “The people of Washington State has asked the governor to address our list of grievances and yet we have heard nothing from him.”

Inslee, the poster added, planned to discuss a range of issues related to trade, foreign direct investment and ongoing educational and cultural exchanges. “Washington currently exports more goods and services to China than any other state and it is our largest trading partner,” the post said.

A search of Inslee’s official government page revealed no mention of a meeting with Cui Tiankai. A Google search also revealed no mention of the meeting. Video of the flag being lowered can be seen above.

Murrieta Patriots Divert Third Round Of Obama Buses Loaded With Illegals (Video)

Stand Your Ground: Protesters Divert 3rd Round Of Buses From Murrieta – Breitbart

.

.
Demonstrators opposed to illegal immigration stood their ground again at the Murrieta Border Patrol station on Monday, where U.S. Border Patrol had been scheduled to transfer a third round of buses, with approximately 140 illegal aliens aboard in total, transferred from overcrowded Texas detention facilities.

For a third time, the buses were rerouted to the San Ysidro, California Border Patrol station, near the U.S.-Mexico border, for processing. The demonstrators gathered in areas to the north and south of the Murrieta station after law enforcement blocked off the road near the station itself. Many told Breitbart News they considered their stand a success, since buses scheduled for Murrieta are avoiding it as long as demonstrators remain.

The anti-illegal immigration protests Monday brought out new, first-time demonstrators and onlookers from many different backgrounds–from young enlisted Marines to legal immigrants from Germany, Mexico, and Central America. Karen Siegemund of Rage Against the Media, comedian and author Evan Sayet, and radio host Kender Macgowan made it out as well.

Despite the news of buses being re-routed for the second time since a standoff with three buses in Murrieta July 1, anti-illegal immigration demonstrators plan to continue to monitor and be at the ready should any transfers of illegal aliens to the Murrieta station resume.

The general sentiment is that the moment that demonstrators leave, transfers to the station will continue.

American Patriots In Murrieta, CA Turn Back DHS Buses Carrying Illegal Aliens (Video)

Protestors Block Buses Carrying Immigrants To Processing Facility – BuzzFeed

.

.
Several buses transporting undocumented immigrants to a Border Patrol station In Murrieta, Calif., Tuesday were turned back after angry protestors blocked the road to their intended destination.

Photographs posted on social media by local reporters show dozens of protestors surrounded the buses heading to a new processing facility set up by U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the Murrieta station to deal with an influx of migrants from Central America.

The protestors were carrying American flags and signs with messages such as “Return to sender” and “Bus illegal children to the White House.” Others called on Border Patrol to protect the border instead of look over detained migrants.

.

.
The federal government previously set up temporary processing facilities in Nogales, Ariz., to supplement overwhelmed facilities in South Texas.

Plans to transport 500 undocumented immigrants to the Murrieta facility were pared down after residents expressed discontent and Mayor Alan Long complained that the federal government’s plan would put a strain on the city’s resources.

Upon arrival the buses carrying 140 undocumented migrants Tuesday turned around for unknown reasons and drove to the Chula Vista Border Patrol facility in San Diego County, a local news station reported.

104,000 Tea Party Patriots Turn Out For Ted Cruz Tele-Townhall

104,000 Strong: Tea Party Patriots Have Record Turnout For Cruz On Tele-Townhall –

The Tea Party Patriots blew away expectations at Wednesday night’s tele-townhall on the Continuing Resolution with 104,000 participants for Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK).

.

The previous record for an event was three weeks ago when 67,000 participants attended. TPP Co-founder Jenny Beth Martin stated, “no special measures were taken to draw the crowd – only the standard Facebook post for two hours and a robocall earlier in the day.”

The pupose of the tele-townhall was to get TPP members up to date on the latest developments in the ongoing battle to defund Obamacare. It was the TPP’s rallies during the congressional recess in August that drove interest in the current hard-line strategy.

Senator Cruz laid out a series of action items that grassroots activists could take on a daily basis to stop Obamacare. These measures included everything from signing petitions to doing blog and Facebook posts. Cruz emphasized the importance of citizens talking to their neighbors about Obamacare and enlisting more people around the country to join the movement to stop its implementation. Of particular note was his call for TPP members to get the word out on the special Obamcare exemption for Congress.

Calls were taken from the participants, and several veterans expressed the importance of getting veterans to join the group. Rep. Bridenstine , a former fighter pilot, expressed his frustration with House Democrats in clocking a rule change that would allow funding of the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Tea Party Patriot officials believe the intensity of emotions to continue the fight against Obamacare will carry through the upcoming debt ceiling negotiations. Martin noted that the tele-townhall four weeks ago drew over 50,000 participants, and active engagement by grassroots is building with each passing day.

Infernal Revenue Service Continues To Hound Tea Party Patriots

IRS Continues To Hound Tea Party Patriots, Demands More Data For Tax-Exempt Status – Washington Times

The initial firestorm surrounding the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups may have subsided, but tea party leaders say the situation has only become worse and may lead to more lawsuits against the embattled agency.

.

New documents show the depth of information the IRS is seeking from Tea Party Patriots, a leading conservative group that first applied for 501(c)(4) tax-exempt status in late 2010 and one of many organizations singled out for extra scrutiny by the Obama administration.

An IRS letter sent to the group last week and obtained by The Washington Times contains a laundry list of requests related to virtually all the group’s activities, including its involvement in the 2012 election cycle and its get-out-the-vote efforts, fundraising activities, all radio and TV advertising, and other information.

The IRS also is asking for detailed financial records, including “the amounts and percentages of your total expenses that were for fundraising activities in the tax year 2011, 2012 and 2013.”

The Aug. 20 request came as a shock to Tea Party Patriots, which said it already has provided to the IRS extensive information on all of its activities and thinks it is long past time to receive a “yes” or “no” answer.

The letter also is proof that, while President Obama and other liberals have referred to the situation as a “phony scandal,” conservative organizations still are targets, said Cleta Mitchell, a Washington, D.C., lawyer representing the Tea Party Patriots and several other conservative groups.

“This is tantamount to an audit. This is the continuation of the same thing they’ve been doing for four years. They have not stopped,” she said Thursday. “Tea Party Patriots has responded to all of the requests of the IRS to date, but that has gotten us nowhere. They just keep asking more questions. We are now looking at potential legal remedies, but that’s not easy. Congress has made it quite difficult to sue the IRS.”

The letter, according to the IRS, is simply an attempt to gather information necessary for the agency to determine whether the Tea Party Patriots is eligible for tax-exempt status under current law. Meeting the tax-exempt criteria requires that a group’s “primary” function and activities not be political in nature.

Since news of the IRS targeting scandal broke this spring, the agency also argues that it has made significant progress in sifting through a backlog of groups – including the Tea Party Patriots – that have been waiting years for a decision.

As of last week, the IRS said, it has closed 64 percent of outstanding cases and approved 65 of 85 organizations for 501(c)(4) status.

But for the groups still awaiting approval, last week’s letter represents nothing more than a delaying tactic, said Jenny Beth Martin, president and co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots.

Reviewing information on the group’s activities in the 2012 election cycle pushes an IRS decision even farther down the road. It also raises the possibility that the organization’s future efforts, including in the upcoming 2014 political contests, also will be subject to detailed review as part of a never-ending approval process.

“What that letter said to me is, ‘We got away with discriminating against you and we’re not stopping.’ [The letter] comes as a complete surprise,” Ms. Martin said.

On Thursday, the IRS said it couldn’t comment specifically on the Tea Party Patriots case, but did defend its information-gathering efforts and argued that it has made great strides in its tax-exempt approval process.

“There are instances when IRS must seek more information before we can determine if an organization’s application for tax-exempt status meets the necessary legal requirements,” the agency said in a statement. “Effort and care has been taken to limit the number and nature of these follow-up questions to focus only on the information that we need in order to properly evaluate the application.”

The agency also referred back to an Aug. 9 statement from acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel, who said that political campaign intervention will be reviewed without regard to specific “labels,” indicating that tea party or other conservative groups no longer will face extra scrutiny.

In its attempts to clear the backlog of agencies awaiting tax-exempt status, the IRS in June – after news of its political targeting had come to light – offered a deal to organizations such as the Tea Party Patriots.

In exchange for agreeing that no more than 40 percent of its “spending and time” would be related to political campaigns, a group’s tax-exempt application would be expedited.

The Tea Party Patriots has yet to accept that deal, and Ms. Martin said it has no intention of doing so.

“I’m being punished because I didn’t take them up on their made-up expedited process,” she said.

Twenty-nine applicants have taken part in that process in recent months, according to the IRS.

Patriots Release Aaron Hernandez Following Arrest

Patriots Release Aaron Hernandez – Sports Illustrated

The New England Patriots have released tight end Aaron Hernandez after he was arrested Wednesday morning at his Massachusetts home.

.

The release comes just two hours after Hernandez was taken out of his home in handcuffs. Hernandez was arrested after four unmarked police cars pulled up to his home and placed the Patriots tight end into custody. The team called the release of Hernandez “the right thing to do” in a statement released on Wednesday:

“A young man was murdered last week and we extend our sympathies to the family and friends who mourn his loss. Words cannot express the disappointment we feel knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation. We realize that law enforcement investigations into this matter are ongoing. We support their efforts and respect the process. At this time, we believe this transaction is simply the right thing to do.”

.
Hernandez has spent his entire three-year career with the Patriots after being drafted in the fourth round in the 2010 NFL Draft. Last season, Hernandez caught 51 passes with 483 yards with five touchdowns. Hernandez has 175 receptions for 1,956 yards and 18 touchdowns over this three years as a tight end in New England.

The Patriots signed Hernandez to a five-year, $40 million contract extension in August, 2012 with $16 million of that contract being guaranteed money as a signing bonus.

Tea Party Patriots: Washington D.C. ‘Audit The IRS Rally’ Scheduled For June 19th

Tea Party Patriots To Organize Mass ‘Audit The IRS Rally’ In D.C. – Big Government

The Tea Party Patriots will organize a mass “Audit the IRS Rally” on June 19th in Washington, D.C. with local and national Tea Party groups to protest the IRS’s targeting of conservative organizations.

.

Jenny Beth Martin, the co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, told Breitbart News that the targeted witnesses that testified before the House Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday “showed the IRS discrimination and abuse had very real consequences on the local coordinators of the groups affected.”

“These were not faceless, amorphous ‘groups’ but real Americans who wanted to peacefully assemble,” Martin said. “Those in the hearings this week are a sample of the thousands of Americans who have been affected by the thuggish tactics of the IRS.”

The Tea Party Patriots, a group that formed when the Tea Party movement officially launched in 2009, finally secured the permit to organize the event on Tuesday only after various delays. At one point in the permitting process, D.C. officials requested information from TPP in a serious of events the group’s leaders said would make “your blood boil” if “you despise government bureaucracy and big government in general.”

In an e-mail blast to local and national Tea Party groups on Tuesday, Tea Party Patriots noted that the rally, starting at noon on the 19th, was important because the IRS scandal is one that crosses party lines and impacts Republicans, independents, and Democrats.

“With all of mess and scandals that are going on in DC, we need to have a big presence to tell them that we aren’t going to take it,” Martin wrote. “We are focusing on the IRS because it is the issue that can cross both lines. No one likes the government abusing its power, and that’s the message we want to convey.”

The group emphasized that the “focus of the rally will be the IRS to try to reach the broadest audience that we can and gain as much support as we can” and asked local Tea Party leaders to “start spreading the word to your groups.”

The IRS has come under fire for deliberately targeting groups applying for tax-exempt status that had “Tea Party” or “Patriots” in their names. The agency naturally scrutinized Tea Party Patriots, a group that had raised concerns about IRS harassment before revelations came to light.

J. Russell George, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, said the abuse of power that he discovered while auditing the IRS was “unprecedented.”

“Together we stand with all of the groups and individuals who were affected and give our fellow Americans the opportunity to see more of the people who have been unfairly abused by the IRS,” Martin told Breitbart News. “We have been fighting for constitutionally limited government for over 4 years. The discriminatory tactics from the IRS and an abusive government will not intimidate us or stop us from fighting for the country we love.”
