Twin Threats To Right's Money, Message, Methods

Spiritual reform meets political change:

Pope Francis' announced opposition to exclusionary wealth coincides with new regulatory controls announced by the Obama administration on powerful, politically-active conservative non-profit groups that serve the wealthy - -  and suddenly the far right's money, playbook and raison-d'etre are squarely on the defensive.

On the same day that the Washington Post says 'Pope Francis denounces 'trickle-down' economics," the NRA shows up in The Wall Street Journal strongly against proposed IRS changes that could limit the effectiveness of liberal as well as conservative non-profits:

At first glance, it appears like a blatant abuse of the tax code designed to muzzle the American people's free speech rights," said a spokesman for the National Rifle Association, which is a 501(c)(4) group.
You could it all a coincidence. Or a true holiday season miracle.
