Skip to comments.IRS official Lerner speedily approved exemption for Obama brother’s ‘charity’
Posted on 05/14/2013 5:12:15 PM PDT by cutty
Lois Lerner, the senior IRS official at the center of the decision to target tea party groups for burdensome tax scrutiny, signed paperwork granting tax-exempt status to the Barack H. Obama Foundation, a shady charity headed by the presidents half-brother that operated illegally for years.
According to the organizations filings, Lerner approved the foundations tax status within a month of filing, an unprecedented timeline that stands in stark contrast to conservative organizations that have been waiting for more than three years, in some cases, for approval.
Lerner also appears to have broken with the norms of tax-exemption approval by granting retroactive tax-exempt status to Malik Obamas organization.

The Boss says now ,you do it now
Abuse of power is not only to hurt those you don’t like, but to also help those you do...
This makes it official - we’re on the road to being a crappy totalitarian hellhole. Thanks you horrible effing democrats.
The progressive sludge pit is truly bottomless.
Putting things in perspective. Watergate was a hangnail...
How fast was Obamas political campaign, Obama for America (OFA) able to change into Organizing for Action (OFA)?
Organizing for action openly says it is designed to help enact Obamas agenda.
His emblem is on their site.
And yes,, they were immediately able to become a 503c4 tax exempt a week or so after the election.
You can add Boehner to that list. If we had a Speaker with a Warrior mindset we could take on these evil leftists.
I am 100% certain that Boehner will just give lip service to any action.
As of this day, I despise Boehner and the left equally.
Rut Roh Scooby!
America is rapidly acquiring all the hallmarks of a third world hellhole.
In other words, Barack Obama is fundamentally transforming the United States.
Is Obongo even in this country legally? Which father was was he born to? Barrack Hussein Obama’s family is a bunch of trash. They are a bunch a bastards born to a commie whore. (Note admins: I am using the literal definitions of bastard and whore. They are both in the dictionary and they adequately express the sexual relations of Stanley Ann Dunham.)
Boner might as well cry in a corner. He is a frick’n coward.
Boehner is somewhat of a mystery. Perhaps we can borrow his FBI file from the White House and see what they have on him.

None of our people are as bad as the democrats - and their liars...none of ‘em.
The Democrats would politicize a lemonade stand if they had half a chance.
What an astoundingly foolish comment. Is that you Karl?? LOL You have to be delusional not to understand that by not acting Boehner and the GOP-e will be equally as guilty as the left in our Republic's demise.
The GOP-e is much much closer to the left than they are to Conservatives.
He describes Michelle Obama as a “great First Lady”, and what it’s like to visit the White House to see his brother:
I see my brother privately at least once a year, when I go to visit him in the White House and say hello. Its like visiting a working national monument, such as the Smithsonian or Buckingham Palace. But hes always at the end of a phone line if I want to talk.
I last saw him on November 19 last year, shortly after the US election. I went to the White House and offered him my congratulations.
We are close but dont live in each others pockets. I dont have to be at every big party. Ive not seen Michelle in a while.
I saw her and the children at the last inauguration, but it was very busy, so we didnt have time to talk. I cant say that I have a relationship with my nieces.
He believes that his brother being president hasn’t always been the most positive things for his life, saying that a lot of negativity has come his way:
Having a famous brother has made me a target of hatred, racism and bigotry against my religion, he says. I recently asked Barack what advice he could give me about dealing with all the negativity.We wonder what advice POTUS gave his bro. Head over to the Daily Mail to read the rest of their interview with Malik Obama.
She’s not good at math but she can follow orders....
And this army of crooks is supposed to run Obamacare .............simply amazing.
Apparently Samson is just as trashy.
U.S. President Barack Obama’s half-brother has been denied a visa to come back to Britain after he earlier gave a false name to police when accused of an attempted sexual assault, British newspapers reported on Sunday.
A database showed that British police arrested Samson Obama, who lives in Kenya, last November after he allegedly tried to sexually assault a young girl, the News of the World said.
ACORN changed its name too...
Is that you, Wormtongue?
Going by my experiences with the urban rumor mill, black Americans have been fed story after story for generations that pretty much fault the “power structure” for all their ills. They believe that white people have been trying to keep them down but they never really seem to blame white democrats for these perceived impositions just “the white power structure”. You have to pay taxes to “the white power structure” see Lauryn Hill. You get audited for not paying your taxes or making egregious errors “white power structure”, You have to pay your bills, “white power structure”.. you have to pay for gas “white power structure”.. you have to pay for cable “white power structure”.. the street light are busted because of the “white power structure”, crack and AIDS were invented by “the white power structure” the buses don’t run on time.. you get the point. In their eyes, whitey has been “getting away with it” for generations and now that Obama is in power, all those things white people have been doing are “wrong”.
If Obama goes down, it won’t end pretty.
?? Never heard of that name.. lol.
An organization that applies for a 501(c) 3 status as a non-profit, non-political charitable, educational organization, automatically has a tax-exempt status but it is not activated until the IRS grants it official recognition as such.
Then previous donations can become tax-deductible. Usually it took about 3-6 months for a tax exempt status to be granted. Under Obama, it’s a lifetime, which is illegal.
Believe me, this topic has a long history of the Left breaking all kinds of IRS codes, as I testified through a study to the House Ways & Means Committee in 1987, but nobody was interested in what I had discovered as an investigative reporter.
?? Never heard of that name.. lol.

Well, here you have Nancy Pelosi’s Culture of Corruption exposed for all to see., it’s just Democrats that are doing the corruption, not the Republican’s.
All brought to you be the “Most Transparent Presidential Administration In History”, which is a follow on to the previous Clinton Administration’s “Most Ethical Presidential Administration In History”.
Notice a trend here?
I think the odd thing (well, one of them) about this was that the Obama organization proclaimed contributions as tax deductible even before they received 501(c)3 status. Incidentally, I read somewhere that most of the tea party orgs were applying for a different status (501(c)4?) which didn’t even permit their contributions to be tax deductible. In that case, the whole point was to slow them down if not definitively halt them until after the election.
