    I just finished The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn and you must read, just make sure to start just before a weekend. I’m not recommending this book, I’m saying you must read this book. “The Isaiah 9:10 Effect” Is it possible… That there exists an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America s future? That […]

    I just recently finished Ann Coulter‘s “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America” and highly recommend it. It’s amazingly ironic that it came out just prior to “Occupy Wall Street” because that movement more than anything that could be said affirms the content of the book.

Another Case for The Fair Tax

Did You Know Another IRS Official Plead the Fifth This Morning?

WASHINGTON (TheBlaze/AP) — As journalists in the nation’s capitol breathlessly reported Wednesday morning on the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, an intriguing thing was happening in another part of the city.
An Internal Revenue Service official was invoking his Fifth Amendment right to silence so as to avoid answering questions about his questionable relationship with the CEO of a multimillion-dollar computer services company.

“A second IRS employee summoned to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee invoked the Fifth Amendment on Wednesday and refused to answer questions — a flashback to Lois Lerner, who did the same during a hearing on the agency’s scandal last month,” POLITICO notes.

The IRS official declined to testify on his relationship with the CEO of computer services company that has as much as $500 million in contracts with the tax agency.
Gregory Roseman said he was advised by his lawyer to invoke his constitutional right against self-incrimination. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is investigating government contracts secured by Strong Castle Inc., and whether a friendship between Roseman and Strong Castle’s CEO, Braulio Castillo, was a factor in the company’s ability to win such large contracts with the IRS.
