IRS agent: Tax agency is still
targeting Tea Party groups

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 8/8/2013 8:49:02 PM

In a remarkable admission that is likely to rock the Internal Revenue Service again, testimony released Thursday by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp reveals that an agent involved in reviewing tax exempt applications from conservative groups told a committee investigator that the agency is still targeting Tea Party groups, three months after the IRS scandal erupted.. In closed door testimony before the House Ways & Means Committee, the unidentified IRS agent said requests for special tax status from Tea Party groups is being forced into a special "secondary screening" because

Why am I not surprised? So far no one or nothing is touching them, so why not continue doing what they are doing?

There are not enough 4-letter words in the English slanguage (spelled that way on purpose) to describe the corruption of the Obama administration. Will anyone go to prison for all the violations against the American people?

Yet if an application comes in for a group with the word "Progress" or "Progressive" in its name it will sail right through. Any bets?

No kidding. They are only following Dear Leader´s orders, with the eager approval of the Court Eunuch media. Why stop the corruption when it is a necessary part of the plan?

The biggest lesson here for the IRS and its puppet masters in the White House is what the GOP "opposition" will let them get away with. They must be incredibly heartened.

If I wanted to get IRS approval for an advocacy group, I´d use some kind of a progressive-friendly name, get approval, then promptly change the name. The IRS has no authority to prevent a name change.

I´ve been saying all summer - nobody is going anywhere. Not only that, the malfeasance continues unabated.

Why?

It is not because of Reps or Dems - it´s all of them. All 545 of them. Congress, this Present-dent and SCOTUS.

The system of government put in place by the Founding Fathers has been warped into it´s current self-serving corrupt body over time.

I do not believe Washington can fix itself.

Np one will go to jail, no will be punished. This might sound cruel but this is exactly what the LoFos voted for on our behalf. We slept for two generations (as) the creeping welfare state and the poisoned education system to complement it created this situation. There is no short term remedy if there is a remedy at all. Its 1776 again and we are facing an even greater tyrant.

Here is a simple solution to get the IRS investigation moving. Declare Lois Lerner a terrorist, a designation she earned as soon as she took the 5th. Drag her ample butt down to Guantanamo. Strap her to a board. Tie a towel around her head. Ask questions. If she declines to answer, apply water. Keep repeating last step until case is solved.

The regime knows that the Tea Party was instrumental in the 2010 losses but they were effectively ´IRS-d´ out in time for Obie´s 2nd inauguration.

Public scorn or not, the Progressives must win the House in 14, so the purges will continue.

I don´t even know why groups openly declaring themselves Tea Party or Conservative bother trying for tax-exempt status under the current regime. When the system is unfair and stacked against you, your only choice is to get smart or give up. So quit whining, name your group something that will fly through the process and get busy changing hearts and minds.

It won´t stop until someone goes to prison. And that will only happen when Democrats lose control of the Senate and the White House. The 2014 midterms is the only chance the country has left to save itself. The Democrat Party is the biggest threat to America´s future than all Islamic nut cases combined.

Why are Tea Party and conservative groups still applying to the IRS? Why do we continue to self-identify to our enemies?

We campaign against intrusive big government, knowing its criminal intentions upon our freedoms, yet we seek their ‘tax-exempt’ blessing. We are acting like we still have a government responsive to its citizens. NEWS FLASH: We Do Not.

We know the IRS, and the whole sundry list of alphabet agencies, are targeting us and their objective is to silence and blunt our political effectiveness. The government has broken the social contract. We are no longer bound. There is no requirement that groups seek the exalted 501C4. Why are we letting our avowed foes know who we are, where we are, and what we are doing? We chase after their carrot of tax exemption and then are surprised when we get hit by their stick of bureaucracy.

It is way past time for patriots to adopt the strategies and tactics of the underground resistance against the Nazis, or from our ‘undocumented’ fellows, regarding secrecy and operating in the shadows. What difference, at this point, does it make to comply with their edicts?

Who is John Galt? I am John Galt.

Or, Tea Party groups proudly label themselves as such and operate as for-profit businesses while their tax exempt status languishes. During that time also proudly proclaim the Feds are holding up their tax exempt status and use this as a fund raising and recruitment tool. Hoist the govt oppressors by their own petard.

The Republicans can do nothing and of course the democrats love it. We don´t have a country anymore. I doubt that the Republicans will EVER win an election in this country again, ever. That´s how far gone this country is. Just live with it...

Ann Coulter takes up ‘Mitt

Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/18/2014 7:03:28 PM     Post Reply
Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

He’s been hammered for going around Congress with executive orders. But he’s within his authority—and he should go further on voting and transparency to make government work better. With Congress paralyzed, President Obama has promised to use his “pen and phone” to overcome the ongoing dysfunction and get some work done. And the White House has already acted several times to help improve America’s economy. But such policies, no matter how valuable, will achieve little if we do not fix our broken democracy. Allow me to suggest some ideas for how the president can do just that. First, some historical context. Presidents

Here is a selection of highlights from Friday’s release of documents from the Clinton presidency. The cache is part of a total of about 33,000 pages of presidential records that had been held back from various public records releases because of legal reasons exempting them from disclosure. A Clinton administration memo (page 674) shows a White House that was acutely aware of the first lady’s image problems as officials contemplated how to soften perceptions of Hillary Clinton and how to “build, energize and expand” her natural base. The latest cache of previously withheld Clinton documents includes an

They say it´s the sincerest form of flattery. At a press conference yesterday President Obama asserted that when it comes to ObamaCare, the Republican Party "is going through the stages of grief--anger and denial and all that stuff--and we´re not at acceptance yet." We used the same gag in October, though ObamaCare supporters were the butt of our joke. And we were recycling our own material: We also invoked the Elisabeth Kübler Ross "stages of grief" way back in November 2000 in reference to Al Gore´s refusal to concede his loss to George W. Bush.

The GOP has been hijacked. That’s right, hijacked. Over the past 100 years, an elite progressive minority has taken the Republican Party far afield from its conservative platform and the interests and values of its grassroots conservative base. I’ll admit that, in the aftermath of the disappointments of the 2012 elections, conservatives like me are angry. We are angry at being blamed for Mitt Romney’s defeat, when we argued from the beginning that he was a Big Government establishment politician and that if he ran a content-free campaign, he would lose. We are angry at the disrespect shown to limited-government constitutional conservatives

Hillary Clinton´s upcoming memoir, which is expected to look back at her time as secretary of State, now has a name: Hard Choices. Which is an okay title! She no doubt had to make some tough decisions while at State, and has at least one big decision to make coming up in the next year or so. But the former Cabinet member and possible future presidential candidate may have been better served by a different title—like, say, Tough Decisions. Because Hard Choices has already been used.

Regardless of how people feel about Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s standoff with the federal Bureau of Land Management over his cattle’s grazing rights, a lot of Americans were surprised to see TV images of an armed-to-the-teeth paramilitary wing of the BLM deployed around Bundy’s ranch.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”?

Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
