Scandals, scandals everywhere! This is the most crooked and corrupt regime ever to rise to power in this country. Heck, Barry makes King George III look like he was a nice, America-loving kind of guy.
Of course they did. Obama has placed his thugs all throughout the government agencies. It came from the top and retribution is what makes this angry black man tick.
Duh, of course they did. The key point, even if this was not politically driven, it was the usual government employee idea to keep their job at all costs. Any organization, like the tea party, is anathma to the desires of income tax auditors.
Nothing else there. No story or details
Yesterday it was “just some low level employee” but now it’s changing to an official per whistleblower. And AP is reporting!
No details at all but significant that it is being reported by AP. More shoes dropping?
TRUST ONCE LOST IS NEVER EASILY REGAINED.
Obama-theUndocumentedTyrantbyFraud has ruined the
reputation of the IRS and DO”J” for the rest of my lifetime.
wait...i thought this was Bush’s fault???
Left wing soviet style political commissars are now present in every Federal agency including the CIA. They are directed and report directly to the White house. The IRS harassment of political groups was no “bureaucratic misjudgement”, nor was the altering of the “CIA talking points”. The Republicans must hold committee hearing on exactly who ordered and managed the Tea Party harassment.
With fewer people willing to be deceived the administrations lies and deceptions are being exposed in record time.
The tide is turning.
I hope you're right, but look at Monicagate. Even with that Algore came within a whisker of winning in 2000, and the Clinton's are still America's favorite Democrats.
The IRS intimidation story is receiving more MSM press attention that Benghazi, until this week. I hope that increased scrutiny of Obama’s malfeasance freezes his attempts to take us farther down the road of destruction.
Saturday news dump.
Nothing to see here.
It's clear that the purpose for delaying the approval of the tax status for conservative groups was to prevent them from effectively participating for Romney.
Second to that was the desire to cause these groups to expend extra funds fighting the delays, as well as diverting their focus from supporting Romney to fighting the IRS.
Weekend news dump, nothing more.
Please allow me the little bit of hope I have.
this needs to be added to the conversation...Mark Levin via Landmark Legal was told and told us yesterday members of congress were the IRS contact..
The top man used the IRS for political motives. This deserves jail time.
IRS spokesman: It wasnt politically motivated, just a mistake.
Lisa Myers, MSNBC, on Gregory Hicks: I got some calls from Democrats saying he wasnt demoted.
...well, thats a relief.
Would you clarify or expand on Congress being the IRS contact?
no names were given but Mark’s web page has more
Sad to see so many willing to vote for a gang of SouthSide thieves , cutthroats and scoundrels masquerading as politicos.
his popularity is droppin like a bear leavin an Obama in the woods
My sister and I decided that whatever penalty the administration (low level) will pay, it will all be worthwhile because they got what they wanted. The names and addresses of all donors and the names and addresses of volunteers and staff and close family members was their end game.
Kind of spooky.
If this gets any worse, they might have to shut down the entire IRS. Then nobody would get any health care.
That would be too bad.
massive blue pill dump ?
These are beyond scandals...
This sh*t is Nazi style mobster tactics.
These totalitarian sons of bitches running this government have clearly been using the IRS as a damn weapon to target Americans.
This is the type of tactics the SS and Nazi’s used against it’s enemies...The courts are doing the same thing, where even if your innocent, it can cost you your home, cars, savings etc just to defend yourself in court. These kinds of tactics are punishment and can last for years...People have committed suicide over this cheet.
The govenrment does it all the time since they use our tax dollars, they’re able to prosecute people right into bankruptcy, ruining them.
And this isn’t the first time political criminals and government ruling class have used the IRS as their private hired guns...
You know what is really scary....Obama and the left in this country are more loyal comrades and adherents to Marx and Lenin than KGB Vlad Putin and his country are now.
The AP is handing in their ‘we’re biased and proud of it’ card?
The AP’s reporting fairly? Even checking out things that might make dems look bad? Strange.
Something’s up... the Washington Post did something like this too...
“Somethings up... the Washington Post did something like this too...”
Scary isn’t it? The times they are a changein’. (I hope)
And they target us at the same time they put Evangelicals, Baptists, Orthadox Jews, Catholics, the Tea Party, and other patriotic organizations on widely distributed lists of potential terrorist organizations...
Where the hell are Boehner and McConnell and the rest of the Pubbies??????
Oh, forgot, they're not on our side with this also.
If they were on our side, what would be a better opportunity to strike?
Maybe they’re trying to stir something up.
More on this story coming out, someone posted updated “legal insurrection” article.
...and not a one shall stick.
The IG report will accuse the chief counsel of the IRS of knowing that the targeting was taking place, and saying nothing:
Among the other revelations, on Aug. 4, 2011, staffers in the IRS Rulings and Agreements office held a meeting with chief counsel so that everyone would have the latest information on the issue.
On Jan, 25, 2012, the criteria for flagging suspect groups was changed to, political action type organizations involved in limiting/expanding Government, educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, social economic reform/movement, the report says.
Guess we’ll get railed at by the media and Carney - did he ever get that pants fire out? - that we’re “polticizing” THIS scandal too.
Valerie Jarrett Farrakhan - “payback time for those not with us”. paraphrased but that’s the essence of her message.
No. It’s a “vast Right-Wing conspiracy.
IRS scandal, Benghazi, Syria..here’s hoping the people wake up to just what manner of man they reelected..
