Posted on 06/05/2013 12:46:54 PM PDT by servo1969
Well, right on cue, Politico arrives this morning like the cavalry with an appallingly dishonest (but expected) piece of reporting that falls right in line with what Congressional Democrats did yesterday. It is as pure a piece of coordination and left-wing propaganda as you will ever read.
And this is the only kind of investigative reporting Politico ever does. Imagine if Politico poured these same resources into investigating the IRS's connections to the White House or the shaping of the IRS talking points by the State Department.
But today's Politico piece is all about changing the subject. All it looks at is the political activity of yesterday's Tea Party witnesses in order to make a case that they deserved scrutiny from the IRS.
The Politico piece, however, intentionally ignores the fact that this is not the point of the scandal. The point is that these groups were singled out for harassment by their own government.
The Politico piece intentionally ignores and chooses not to report on all the political activity of tax-exempt left-leaning groups (like Obama's Organizing for America) -- groups approved by the IRS, that are every bit as political as those on the right who were paralyzed by lengthy and intrusive questionnaires and threats of perjury; those who had their information leaked to the media.
Working directly with the Democrats, Politico is now putting in overtime to desperately steer subject away from and distract from partisan horrors committed by the IRS.
The actual crime is no longer the story, according to Politico. No, the story is that the victims had it coming.

Surprised it took the scumbags this long.
Politico. Just another two-bit tentacle of the DNC. As if the DNC really needed another one.
Sickening, the Dems are fighting tooth and nail. Where are our leaders standing against this tyranny? There is literally no opposition party willing to vigoriously engage these goose stepping fascists. None. We are done.
No, you may be done... some of us will never be “done”.
Good for you. Let me know when you find a viable opposition party to support. In the mean time, you might want to brush up on your Spanish.
-——if Politico poured these same resources——
The view is that Politico has resources. Politico prints what comes from the ministry of propaganda. An ape with a copy machine can do Politico’s job.
Time to shine some sunlight on Democrat 501-c3s and see what THEY have been up to since receiving tax-exempt status. I understand many are SERIOUSLY political, which brings us back to Square One...Why did you use your public sector job, under color of authority, to harass and target conservative groups?
They were waiting on a call back from Clintonopoulos and a green light from Axelrod.
Square One is street brass: I'm with Barky's dogs, I NEVER have to answer a question from scum like you. Us up here, you way down there, get it?
Proof that the entire democrat party approves of the harassment by the irs.
McDermott was STILL attacking the witnesses today on FOX at around 1:15 ET. He basically accused them of lying.
“...they will say anything...they did not present evidence to backup their claims...etc. etc.” (paraphrased).
The talking points were handed out this a.m.
Typical. Leftists never admit mistakes. They always compound their problems.
Yep, and that girl that got raped had it coming, she was dressed too sexy.s

Planned Parenthood has had 501-3c status for many, many years. I complained about it to my pro-abort congressman. He told me I was confusing the “charity” arm of PP with its “advocacy” arm.
I submit that no Conservative or Christian organizations could get away with that ruse.
Give up if you want... just please stay out of the way of Patriots.
