Take the article posted below from OpenSecrets. While the names of the two organizations seeking 501C(4) status sound very conservative, information discovered about both reveal they are about as progressive as they come, and in their case, we could say they come and go repeatedly.

Here’s what we’ve learned about the evolving identity of the first group, Citizens for Strength and Security:
Through it all, the various groups seemed to have many of the same addresses and board members in common.
Here’s another way to look at it:
To elaborate: In its first year, Citizens for Strength and Security (then ASQHC) raised $47 million with a staff of only two people. The pair — who appear to have been employees of the consulting firm Hilltop Public Solutions — worked an average of two hours a week. They drew no salary from the group, but two firms that share an address with Hilltop – SA Productions and Data and S&B Public Solutions LLC — were paid more than $3.4 million for “issue advocacy” and “coalition management” in 2009 and 2010.
On the rare occasion that an organization’s exempt status is revoked or denied, little to nothing about it is public. As we described in part five of our recent Shadow Money Magic report, the IRS doesn’t tell the FEC or the public that the group might be required to disclose its donors. Rather, most groups could simply pay their federal income taxes and fade away, except in cases of prominent organizations like Crossroads GPS — which applied for exempt status nearly three years ago and has yet to receive it. (This week a Crossroads spokesman told the Los Angeles Times that his group may have been a victim of the IRS’ heightened scrutiny of conservative groups.) Denial letters are made public only after they are scrubbed of all identifying information. Furthermore, formal denials are often unnecessary because, according to Lois Lerner, IRS Director of Exempt Organizations, “many organizations withdraw their application for exemption when they learn that a denial is forthcoming.”
In 1951, China formally annexed Tibet as an autonomous region, giving rise to a Tibetan independence movement—led by the Dalai Lama, winner of the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize—that continued into the early 21st century. Before the 1950s Tibet was a unique entity that sought isolation from the rest of the world. It constituted a cultural and religious whole, marked by the Tibetan language and Tibetan Buddhism. Little effort was made to facilitate communication with other countries, and economic development was minimal. After its incorporation into China, fitful efforts at development took place in Tibet, disrupted by ethnic tension between the Han (Chinese) and Tibetans and Tibetan resistance to the imposition of Marxist values.

In 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Homestead Act, which provided 160 acres of public land virtually free of charge to those who had lived on and cultivated the land for at least five years.
First Greco-Turkish War: In 1897, the Greeks—fighting for the annexation of Crete—yielded to pressures from European powers to withdraw their troops from Crete and accept an armistice on the mainland. A peace treaty, concluded on December 4, compelled Greece to pay the Turks an indemnity, to accept an international financial commission that would control Greek finances, and to yield some territory in Thessaly to Turkey. Subsequently, the Turkish troops also left Crete, which had been made an international protectorate, and an autonomous government under Prince George, the second son of the Greek king, was formed there (1898). Crete was finally ceded to Greece by the Treaty of London (1913), which ended the First Balkan War.

When two of the harshest critics of those arguing for fewer restrictions on 2nd amendment rights finally come out and eat a little humble pie, it has to be noted. So, for that reasons we are posting a link showing Piers Morgan and Joe Scarborough saying that maybe the gun advocates had something valid in their arguments against government control of citizens’ right to keep and bear arms.
There is scant reason for us to like these two, but perhaps we can say we dislike them less intensely because a couple of scales fell from their eyes.
This sort of publicity will generate more of the same and such should serve to wake up some of their fellow ignoramuses. The link is just below and don’t forget to access any related articles:
It seldom happens. A member of congress receives a standing ovation for work they have done or questions they have asked. It happened and you can mark your calendar on this date (5/17/13) as the extra-ordinary day a congress member spoke for Americans regarding the out-of-bounds machinations of the IRS.
This is a gift that keeps on giving, donated by ignorant progressives, working to undermine conservative movements, only to have the scheme back-flip. Of course this is not the end of growing displeasure with this government, but it may the beginning of the end of this administration.
The following comes from Representative Mike Kelly (R-PA) and RealClearPolitics:

As one is jailed for life, another with a creepy persona and filthy hands surfaces from the depths of hell.
This one comes from Texas. Houston to be exact and if the stories are
factual about his inhuman acts, he is even worse than Gosnell.
This is not an honor Texas will in any way celebrate, even though this
abortion doctor may have sent babies to their death in the most hellish
way possible and he ends up number 1 in that category.. Read the story from the link just below:
(WARNING EXTREMELY GRAPHIC)
Contrary to the spew coming from some progressive politicos and their supporting media cohorts, progressive groups were not dealt the same treatment the Tea Party and other conservative organizations.
As we reported on this blog yesterday, favored friends and relatives of progressives in power were chosen for special beneficial treatment for tax exempt status. Now more evidence has developed or been pushed forward refuting any supposition the progressives were harshly dealt with.
What has been revealed and what will be revealed in the future is the progressives and communists have a bucket of eels slipping away from their previously “accepted,” lies toward the truth about their actual operational mendacity.

In 1973, Skylab, the first U.S. space station, was launched. Skylab was an outcome of the Apollo Applications Program set up by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in 1965 to adapt spacecraft and systems developed for the U.S. Moon-landing program to a variety of scientific missions. As a first step toward establishing a long-term manned platform in space, Skylab made use of a Saturn V Moon rocket, whose third stage was outfitted as a habitat and ready-to-use orbital workshop, and the Command and Service modules of Apollo spacecraft, which ferried the station’s crews and small amounts of supplies. Although limited by its consumable resources in the same way as the Soviet Union’s first-generation Salyut stations, Skylab was much roomier and capable of more research. Its main scientific instrument, the Apollo Telescope Mount, incorporated a number of component telescopes and other devices for observing the Sun over a broad range of the electromagnetic spectrum, from visible light through X rays.
A half-brother of our resident president looks to have received accelerated tax-exempt status for a bogus, or perhaps, non-bogus “charity,” The name of the foundation, “The Barack H Obama Foundation,”
According to reports, this half-brother was Obama’s “best man” when POTUS married FLOTUS. There are accusations, perhaps verified fact, that this kinfolk seduced his 12th wife when she was 17 years of age. Also, people inquiring about the charity have had great difficulty tracing any good the charity has performed.
The half-brother, not only received rapid appoval for his “charity,” the charity has received retroactive approval for the years it operated outside the law before approval was first sought. This filthy maneuvering really seems to touch Obama and his progressive minions. But, our president has scales over his eye.
