Government’s Case Against Steve Stockman Getting Weaker

Rachel Alexander, Townhall

The amicus curiae’s reply characterizes this as a case where “the Government misused innocent acts of Appellant and his colleagues to spin fantastical tales of guilt that confused and misled the jury.” If allowed to stand, this sets a terrifying precedent, that the courts will not uphold Americans’ First Amendment right to criticize public officials. It also puts nonprofits in grave danger of malicious prosecution — if the prosecution gets to define what constitutes legally permissible activities by a nonprofit, they could sink anyone by claiming a higher standard than required by law.

Retribution by Obama officials keeps courageous congressman in prison

Rebecca Hagelin, Washington Times

Steve Stockman is an American hero who had the guts to expose corruption at the highest levels. If the abuses of power that now leave him shackled are not investigated and prosecuted, then who will ever dare question the leftist power mongers in the future? If his conviction is not overturned or pardoned, then Mr. Obama, Ms. Lerner and the liberal cronies who walked free from their own crimes will have succeeded in crushing a good man who fought to hold them accountable. Steve Stockman worked on behalf of all Americans who are sick and tired of dirty politicians. Every lawmaker who cares about true justice and their own honor has a duty to fight for Steve Stockman.

Stockman Convicted Through Government Trickery Says New Brief

A new “friend of the Court” brief asking that the conviction of former Rep. Steve Stockman be thrown-out has been submitted by a group of conseratives led by CHQ Chairman Richard A Viguerie. The brief says "To reach a conviction and this draconian sentence for the outspoken former Congressman Stockman, the government confused the law governing nonprofit fundraising and campaign finance, and presented its case in a manner that confused the jury."

Will Rep. Ilhan Omar Get The Rep. Steve Stockman Treatment?

Limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Steve Stockman was the subject of a four-year investigation by the FBI for the same things Rep. Omar is accused of, however, we doubt Rep. Omar, who checks all the boxes for getting celebrity justice (Muslim, African, liberal, Democrat, woman, etc.) will get the same treatment from the FBI that Rep. Stockman got.

The Persecution Of Congressman Steve Stockman

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Why the FISA memo could lead to perjury convictions of Comey & Co.

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

It seems the procurers of the FISA warrants that are the subject of the Nunes memo failed to disclose material facts on which the FISA judges could determine the credibility of the probable cause before issuing and re-issuing the warrants. Comey & Co., along with allies such as Eric Holder, have every reason to be nervous. The FBI, DOJ, and FISA warrant process seem to have been corrupted, not just by partisan politics, but potentially perjurious actors who omitted material information in the warrant-procuring process.

Facebook Labels ConservativeHQ “Malicious” Blocks Pro-Trump Content

Right before the election Facebook began to block CHQ content. In responses that sounded like they were written by Lois Lerner, we were assured that the problem had nothing to do with ConservativeHQ’s name or the conservative content of our articles, but the problem has continued to grow and now Facebook has labeled CHQ a "malicious" website.

Read the Full IRS 'Enemies List'

Brian Sikma, The Resurgent

In 2013, Lerner apologized for the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups. A Washington Post story at the time placed the number of affected groups at around 300. In the new court filings, the IRS admits it targeted 426 organizations, with an additional 40 groups declining to be included on the list.

Would Lois Lerner Make a Good Senator?

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, Daily Caller

Lois Lerner misused and abused the tax code as a political weapon. One of her comrades in lawlessness, California Attorney General Kamala Harris, now wants to be in the United State Senate, leaving behind underlings who could face jail for her acts and ambitions.

IRS Tea Party targeting issues persist for IRS after Justice ends probe

Stephan Dinan, Washington Times

The IRS is still holding up the nonprofit applications of tea party groups, including one that has been waiting nearly six years for approval, as conservatives panned the Justice Department’s announcement last week that it had cleared the tax agency, and former senior executive Lois G. Lerner, of any wrongdoing.

Lois Lerner's 'Partners' and Her ‘Mini-Me’

Conservatives who now know about the lawless, arrogant ex-federal bureaucrat lawyer Lois Lerner may wish to know that her “farm team” meets at the Washington Marriott Georgetown October 5 – 7.

Lois Lerner’s ‘Partners’

Mark Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

The National Association of State Charity Officials has been described as Lois Lerner’s “partner in the regulation of charities.” The theme of NASCO’s meeting in Washington early next month is “A Renewed Focus on the State Regulator.” A renewed focus is indeed needed, but on their lawlessness, intransparency, unethical behavior, and Lois Lerner-like arrogance.

State Politicians and Bureaucrats Violate Rights & Attack ‘Nongovernmental Democracy’

Some regulators believe their "probable cause" required by the Fourth Amendment is merely that they are regulators.  And, when they are questioned about their actual legal authority and grounds, these regulators often turn arrogant and bullying instead of providing notice and transparency. The National Association of State Charity Officials (NASCO) could take a stand for transparency and constitutional government if it adopts resolutions proposed in this article by our colleague constitutional lawyer Mark J. Fitzgibbons.

Will Lois Lerner Ever Be Prosecuted?

Obama Admin Won't Turn Over Docs On IRS Abuse

John Hayward, Breitbart

The Administration has decided not to hand the docs over after all, citing a statute that basically says the privacy of the people whose privacy the WHouse violated would be violated by revealing details of the WHouse violation to the public. It sounds pretty fishy to Cause of Action.

IRS Forced to Admit They Never Even Looked for Lerner’s ‘Missing’ Emails

Greg Campbell, Tea Party News Network

IRS lawyers explained that the IRS had not searched the computer systems for the “missing” emails for a variety of reasons. They claimed that no search was conducted because “the servers would not result in the recovery of any information.”
