Many people just read the headlines. That's why I said "Up Front". The more significant point is not that this was a Native American family, but that he is another Mexican we brought in to work while we have high unemployment (and record low labor participation rate). Despite many being good people, many have no respect for our laws. We need to push some of the welfare people into these green…

In fact they have listed the names of the young people in the obituary section of the paper, they just don't put heroine or shotgun, or rope as the cause of death or list it specifically as a suicide... Word of mouth and social media is how we know who what when where and why... old people have killed themselves forever, we just don't list the cause of death out of deference to the family.

Let's ask President Trump what he would do. Is it just me or are there more Mexicans involved in killings now than there were? Yes, I know there are more pouring out of the ant hill south of our border, but it seems that we are getting more and more of their scum.

They used to publish in the newspaper (in an out of the way area) the results of a Coroner's Inquest Have not seen that done here in quite a while. I was also told years ago that if you use a Public entity, IE ambulance, fire department and/or police it is not confidential information but that does not mean the Media has an obligation to report..... An inquest is an inquiry held in public…

Ten Democrat senators killed a measure to prohibit political discrimination by IRS employees

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Ten Democrat senators killed a measure to prohibit political discrimination by IRS employees.

The Senate Judiciary Committee defeated an amendment by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. Titled “Intentional Discrimination by Employees of the Internal Revenue Service,” the measure stated:

“(a) Offense. — It shall be unlawful for any officer of the Internal Revenue Service to, regardless of whether the officer or employee is acting under the color of law, willfully act with the intent to injure, oppress, threaten, intimidate or single out and subject to undue scrutiny for purposes of harassment any person or organization of any state –

“(1) based solely or primarily on the political, economic or social positions held or expressed by the person or organization; or

“2) because the person or organization has expressed a particular political, economic, or social position using any words of writing allowed by law.”

The senators — all Democrats — who voted to kill Cruz’s amendment were:

  • Patrick Leahy of Vermont
  • Dianne Feinstein of California
  • Charles Schumer of New York
  • Richard Durbin of Illinois
  • Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island
  • Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken of Minnesota
  • Chris Coons of Delaware
  • Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut
  • Mazie Hirono of Hawaii

“They must like IRS employees, or they must like discrimination, or both,” Christian Adams told Watchdog.org.

The Northern Virginia lawyer has worked with the Texas-based True the Vote, an election-watch group targeted by the IRS with extensive audits.

The IRS inspector general reported the agency gave extra scrutiny to 298 groups applying for tax-exempt status from spring 2010 to spring 2012.

The vast majority — 248 — were conservative/tea party organizations. Twenty-nine were rated liberal and 21 were neither, according to the Republican staff of the House Ways and Means Committee.

Former IRS Director Lois Lerner, again taking the Fifth Amendment, declined Wednesday to answer questions from the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

READ TRUE THE VOTE’S STATEMENT ON LERNER’S SILENCE.

“Most legal corruption is all about increasing power for those in government,” said Richard Rahm, senior fellow at the libertarian Cato Institute.

“Using government agencies to go after political opponents and attempting to deny them the right of free speech is a classic action of corrupt and authoritarian regimes,” Rahm said.
