Jason Mattera is a conservative activist who has written several books including Hollywood Hypocrites, Obama Zombies and Crapitalsim. He frequently appears on Bill O’Reilly’s show. He’s been doing some great work and everyone ought to know about it. he confronted Harry Reid to ask Reid how he, while serving in public office nearly his entire life, became a millionaire several times over. Reid refused to respond and his security detail roughed Mattera up. Watch:
Mattera proved that Lois Lerner, the IRS official who targeted conservatives for harassment by the IRS, really, really does not like being targeted herself.
“Her exclusive interview with Politico was anything but reticent and reserved. In it, Ms. Lerner said she did nothing wrong and considers herself the victim,” writes Forbes’ Robert W. Wood. “Yet in a curious turn of events, journalist and Crapitalism author Jason Mattera showed up in her nice Bethesda neighborhood to pepper her with questions. They included such zingers as ‘Do you feel bad about turning the government into a weapon to crush political dissent?’”
What’s become interesting about Matter’s video of Lois Lerner is how some people, like conservative and Fox News host Greg Gutfeld, are saying it was overboard and may engender sympathy for Lerner.
“But being hounded and asked questions of this sort cannot be entirely unexpected and may not even be unfair, especially after Ms. Lerner’s exclusive interview with Politico,” Wood said.
Either way, Matters insists that “this is the job of the media to go after people who have abused their status as a public servant.”
And he’s absolutely correct.
Watch the fun:
Forbes said Lerner had a “Terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.”
The neighbor whose house Lerner tried to bust into didn’t want her in:
“Could you call the police?” Ms. Lerner begs the woman while pounding on the door. “Please let me in. These guys are with the press and they’re not leaving me alone. I only need to come in for a second. Can I go in the garage?”
“What are you doing here?” an elderly man asks from behind as he approaches his front door.
“She’s trying to get in your house, she doesn’t want to answer questions,” Mr. Mattera explains.
“I don’t want her in the house,” the man says.
“I know you don’t,” Ms. Lerner says to the man as she pats him on the shoulder and rushes back down the hill.
Before the video ends, Ms. Lerner is seen walking up another neighbor’s driveway when Mr. Mattera asks, “Are we going to try another house?”
Mattera also had questions for Nancy Pelosi, who always has something to say, about her crony capitalism connection to billionaire Tom Steyer:
Much like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), Nancy Pelosi has made the billionaire Koch brothers a prominent fixture in her frequent public remarks against Republicans. But given her connection to Tom Steyer, Mattera believes a double standard is clearly at play. He wrote CRAPITALISM, he has explained, in order to expose the Left’s phony lies and hypocrisy of claiming to stand up for the little guy, but trampling on them every chance they get.
In fact, Pelosi’s pal Tom Steyer has his own chapter in the book.
One week after his elevator encounter with the California Democrat, Mattera caught up with Pelosi a second time, prior to her speech at a union-organized rally.
“Are you going to talk about your crony connections to Tom Steyer? You know, the money you secured that helped his investment?” Mattera asked.
Pelosi refused to answer.
“I know you don’t want to talk about this … but you guys love talking about the Koch brothers. Somehow they’re undermining democracy,” said Mattera.
Again, Pelosi refused to answer. And this time, one of the members of her security detail asked the author if he would please leave her alone.
“She doesn’t want to answer questions right now,” the agent said.
“Well, clearly — she never does,” responded Mattera.
Here is that video:
Liberal Bob Beckel threatened Mattera with a knife fight. Mattera offered to debate Beckel on “The Five” but Beckel has gone into hiding.
Capitol Police are dodging questions about the assault.
