Out-of-control IRS seeks new powers (Jenny Beth Martin’s Weekly Column in the Washington Times)

It’s a thought that should send a chill up every American’s spine: The Internal Revenue Service wants to increase its already-expansive powers. Fresh off the IRS targeting scandal – in which the agency systematically brought its enormous power to bear to target conservatives for years – the IRS now wants new authority to ask 501(c)(3) charitable organizations to collect the Social Security numbers of donors who contribute more than $250 in a given year. For good reason, Americans are alarmed that the IRS is even considering this new rule. Read more: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/nov/30/jenny-beth-martin-out-control-irs-...

The fight against an unconstitutional power grab

Tom Cotton, the conservative Senator-elect from Arkansas, has been a strong voice in recent weeks against President Obama’s executive amnesty. At a time when many of our lawmakers cower behind the guise of moderate compromise, we wish more would stand up and defend the principles of real conservatism. Cotton, to his credit, has been front and center giving voice to those who oppose amnesty. On Friday, he called on Americans to jumpstart a phone-banking campaign to shut down the Capitol switch board. “In 2007, there were reports that the Capitol switch board  actually stopped working because so many people called, and asked their senators ...
