The IRS targeted pro-Israel groups

The bald and ugly truth is that Obama’s IRS was being used for political purposes before even the Supreme Court Citizens United decision, and before the term “tea party group” was even included in the agency’s black list. As the Journal reports, “emails uncovered by the House Ways and Means Committee show that the IRS and State Department were conferring in 2009 about pro-Israel groups like Z Street and considering arguments to deny their tax-exempt applications.”

This disclosure should frighten every American as it is evidence that our nation’s tax collectors were more than willing participants in a scheme to regulate public discourse using their unique authority.

And it reveals an even seedier underbelly to the Obama Administration that can no longer hide behind the left’s outrage over the Supreme Court’s campaign financing decision. They have been unmasked as little more than thugs using the government’s power to intimidate or coerce those whom they disagreed.

The case of the midnight rapist; police seek clues

Military’s mental illness stigma pushed Navy captain to edge; attempted suicide three times

The different way, he explained, was to over-exercise himself to death.

“It was the perfect solution to the problem I had, which was I didn’t want the stigma of suicide,” Kruder said.

Kruder’s over-exercising, together with his 17 hour-a-day job as an executive assistant to a three-star admiral, were taking its toll. It was all part of what Kruder, 47, called his “master plan.”

But what he didn’t expect was his family and friends becoming concerned about his 60-pound weight loss as well as his personality changes.

Then, one morning in 2011, Kruder hit rock bottom.

“We were probably days, hours maybe, away from breaking the marriage up,” Kruder said.

Despite the near constant fighting, Todd and Sharon Kruder had kept their wedding rings firmly on their fingers.

In their 24 years of marriage, they rarely, if ever, took them off until that day.

A claim to the Health Care Alternative Dispute Resolution Office was made by James and Amanda Tyler against Dr. Judd for malpractice on Oct. 6, 2012.

The couple laid out their cause of action calling for damages suffered as a result of a botched sterilization performed by Dr. Judd on Mrs. Tyler.
