A recent Fox News poll shows more than two-thirds of American voters believe the federal government is “out of control” and a threat to their liberties. Meanwhile, a separate survey commissioned by WND revealed that more than half of the public supports impeaching President Obama for a series of explosive scandals: spying on journalists, IRS targeting of conservative and Tea Party groups, as well as what has become known as “Benghazigate.”
According to the Fox News poll, released on May 21 and conducted under the guidance of two polling firms, a whopping 68 percent of likely voters “feel like the federal government has gotten out of control and is threatening the basic civil liberties of Americans.” Almost half of Democrats agree that Washington, D.C., is out of control as well — more than the number who disagreed.
IRS official Lois Lerner pled her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination at congressional hearings in the ever-widening IRS scandal May 22, as it became increasingly apparent that senior Obama administration officials knew the IRS was discriminating against conservative and Tea Party groups more than a year ago and did nothing to stop it.
Drawing fire from critics, the DOJ has been investigating a Fox News reporter for his allegedly “classified” newsgathering activities.
True the Vote, the nation's leading voters’ rights organization, filed suit in federal court in Washington, D.C., against the IRS. True the Vote is asking the court to grant its long-awaited tax-exempt status and is seeking damages for delays in the processing of its application.
