IRS targeted close to 500 organizations. They were busy little beavers, weren’t they?
The Dem’s toxic involvement in pushing repeatedly and publicly pressuring the IRS to engage in the very thuggery that they are only now condemning. They were for it before they were against it.
Say it ain’t so: While Tea Party and conservative groups had their applications squashed, IRS chief Lois Lerner granted tax-exempt status to Obama’s half-brother, Malik Obama, for his Barack H. Obama Foundation, a shady charity that he that operated illegally for years.
IRS harassed Catholic Professor after she spoke out against Obama, demanded to know who was paying her.
The fox watching the hen house: DOJ wants to investigate the IRS, House Oversight chair Darrell Issa says, I. Don’t Think. So.
Inspector General’s report on IRS profiling: Golly, we just don’t have a clue.
IRS questionnaire for Tea Party groups included Facebook posts, reading lists, letters to the editor, personal relationships, and private thoughts.
IRS Stalled the Applications of Conservative Groups Up to 13 Months. For the duration of the campaign, of course.
The IRS came after Billy Graham, too.
Spokeskid Carney is in full denial spin: “We need the independent inspector general’s report to be released before we can make judgments. One person’s view of what actions were taken or what that individual did is not enough for us to say something concretely happened that was inappropriate.” One person’s view?? Last I checked, there’s a fucking mountain of evidence from the victims of IRS thuggery. It’s amazing how even a tool like Carney can keep a straight face while he mouths that shit.
For All Her Good Work: Lois Lerner – director for the IRS Exempt Organization Division – is slated to deliver the commencement address at Western New England University School of Law and be given the university’s “President’s Medallion.”
D.C. Officials Knew of IRS Targeting Conservatives
IRS Analyst: Agency Had a “Secret Working Group” Devoted to Investigating Conservative Organizations
Larry Connors, a news anchor at KMOV Channel 4 in St. Louis, says that the IRS has been targeting him since he threw some hard questions at Obama during an April 2012 interview. His sin: Grilling Obama about the Buffet Rule, his comments before the Supreme Court ruling on ObamaCare, and pointing out that many people consider him to be “out of touch”; taking lavish family vacations during an (Obama facilitated) economic crisis.
The George Soros- funded LeftProg group ProPublica says the IRS gave them confidential applications of conservative groups, that ‘were not supposed to be made public.’ That information got passed to leftwing main stream media journalists as fodder for their anti-Tea Party vitriol. Now that the election is over and the shit has hit the fan, the leftie douchebags get a sudden attack of conscience.
The House Ways and Means Committee has demanded the IRS turn over copies of all internal communications containing the words “tea party,” “patriot,” or “conservative” and the names and titles of all IRS officials involved in discriminating against tea party and conservative groups when they submitted applications for tax-exempt status. Watch out House Ways and Means Committee, you might have an IRS bulls eye painted on your back, too.
Of course, we knew about this over a year ago, but Obama’s media lackeys wouldn’t publicize it. Come to find out, the IRS has been specifically targeting Tea Party conservatives since 2010.
The IRS expanded its illegal activities against patriotic organizations, to include groups that focus on the Constitution and criticize government spending. Harassment techniques involved stealing the confidential tax returns of one of Mitt Romney’s political action committees and leaking them to political opponents, and auditing a wealthy Romney donor because he’s ”litigious, combative and a bitter foe of the gay rights movement.”
In January 2012, groups that applied for tax exempt status which described themselves as “political action type organizations involved in limiting/expanding Government, educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, social economic reform movement” were subjected to special scrutiny. Tea Party and patriotic groups who are concerned over the way the country is being run and making America a better place to live, got special treatment from the IRS; demands for the names of all their volunteers, donors, and contributors.
Enemies of the Obama State are under Janet “Big Sis” Napolitano’s watchful glare, especially those of us who are reverent of individual liberty.
Our freedoms and liberties have come under attack by an increasingly hostile, out-of-control, big government apparatus. If that realization hasn’t hit you with enough force, get ready for a total crackdown on your freedom of speech if Obama deems it “necessary in the event of a (manufactured) crisis”.
Obama’s lawlessness and abuse of power should have earned him impeachment and a one-way ticket to Leavenworth. He’s a petty little tyrant who wields corrupt government agencies like a billy club, targeting the Bill of Rights and outspoken critics.
If you value your freedoms, defend them.
