The State Government Agency That Spied on Citizens

A new report on a government spying operation conducted by partisan bureaucrats should outrage and scare Americans everywhere. It shows what can happen when, as the report says, partisans “weaponize” a government agency and use its powers to advance “political goals.” Continue reading

The IRS Scandal: It’s About Discrimination, Stupid.

This is an extraordinary abuse of power by a very powerful federal agency — one that has been used before by an American president (Richard Nixon) to punish and intimidate enemies.
