IRS Scandal About
to Blow Wide Open?

Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 5/13/2013 11:39:47 PM

To no one’s surprise, it is already evident that the Obama administration has been lying about the scope of the IRS’s harassment of conservative-leaning non-profits. The Washington Post has obtained documents that show the anti-conservative effort was directed from Washington, D.C., and was not a rogue operation out of the agency’s Cincinnati office, as the administration has claimed: Internal Revenue Service officials in Washington and at least two other offices were involved in the targeting of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, making clear the effort reached well beyond the

How the worm turns. Those of us who frequent this Salon have seen this coming for YEARS. Chicago on the Potomac; Jug Ears, Plugs, ValJar, Moochelle Antoinette and Twinkle Toes set the tone and gears in motion back in January 2009...

Will Constitutional Patriots step up and throw this rogue regime out?

John Boehner....are you listening???

Comrade Hussein ObaMao is just "centralizing power". It´s part of the transformation. And it would be ridiculous to fear a tyrannical government, right?

We are turning into a banana republic. And the folks who could have stopped it, didn´t. That would be the MSM, who aided and abetted this centralization and abuse of power, all to further their ideology.

Democrats For Dummies:

1. Who seriously believes Obama didn´t know about this?
2. Who seriously believes the "progressive" response to the IRS targeting conservatives isn´t "cool, man"?
3. Who seriously believes Obama and the "progressives" are going to stop targeting conservative groups?
4. Who seriously believes the GOP has the stones to do anything about it?

Three, count ´em, three huge scandals all boiling over for obama in the same week - and it´s only monday. He has no power or credibility left and this country will not be molded into his idea of a kingdom. It´s over for the regime and he knows it. Any day now, I predict the facts of Fast and Furious will begin to surface. His own people are tired of covering his butt. That´s why you see the desperation, arrogance and the bitterness in every public appearance. He and michelle were handed the opportunity of a lifetime and they BLEW IT.

People, focus. IF obomba is ready to throw the IRS under the bus...his obombacare police....WHAT DOES THIS TELL YOU ABOUT BENGHAZI? That it must be even a larger fish to catch? Think about it. Benghazi is the prize winner here. This IRS Scandal is nothing more than small fries, just as his talking points were. It´s all about Benghazi and how the truth there must be hidden from WTP at all costs. At the moment he is throwing us stink smoke bombs. Benghazi is the place to look for nuclear hype.

President Obama found out about this the same way most of us did - from Newspaper accounts, I think probably this past Friday - he thinks it´s outrageous and when he finds out who´s responsible, he´s going to hold those people accountable - now that his Monday Fundraisers are finished, he´ll probably find out Tuesday about the Tapping of AP Reporters´ phones o - when he finds out who´s responsible for that, he´ll hold them accountable as well

This had to be orders from the Top.

Ordinary workers don´t go on excursions like this--it might be bad for their job and cushy pension.

If the workers are doing this, it´s only because they were under orders, and it may well be those orders were in writing, at least as "guidelines."

Progressives don´t need specific orders from the top. They know the drill and are willing to do whatever it takes to advance the agenda. Obama has set the tone and his administration knows what he expects them to do even if it means breaking the law. There would be trouble for them with Obama if they didn´t take every advantage legal or illegal. Obama has never had to deal with the consequences of his actions. He has skated for so long that he believes he is untouchable. He wanted the job. Let´s see if he takes responsibility. If he threw his grandmother under the buss, no one is safe. Obama is confident none of these scandals will touch him. It remains to be seen if his confidence is overrated or not.

Foreign policy is hard but ´Look out Ma, the Revenuer´s is after us´ is something that the low info voters can understand. Frankly we need ao keep pushing on both fronts especially in Congress. Lord knows there are some low info voters there

Poster #15 you are right, so right. I have always wonder how much the lower level Alinskyites operate without direct guidance from above. I feel they don´t operate out of fear of retribution from the regime, but rather are looking for "atta boys" and governmental promotions for more perks, pay, and power for corruption they initiate. However, having said that, I believe this scandle involves very high ups in the regime.

In response to above, there no constitutional way to void the 2012 election and make Romney President. The constitutional remedy is impeachment and lying to the American people is not a crime. The IRS and APA mess are potentially impeachable, but the GOP would be dumb to try. Our base is fired up for 2014 anyhow, why try to stir up the Obama base? I remind you that Clinton´s popularity ROSE during impreachment. Obama´s would rise higher. he starts froma baseline of 45% approval that is rock solid. He will never be driven to the low 30´s like Bush.

# 7 - Yes, the bigger picture, possibility of a WWIII is being played in the background without as much attention as it deserves ----- SYRIA and BENGHAZI connection. From Arab Spring, to Benghazi, to IRS to ´transformation´ of this country with projects like obamacare, the EPA rules and regs to massive icrease by Trillions annually to the national debt, all of this is to bring the U.S.A. to it´s knees, losing its sovereignty to install a One World Order. Look how often leadership by the UN has been the subject of conversation, i.e., gun control, etc.

We´ve listen to the ruling elite in Washington DC tell US how intelligent the "won" is. What a "cool" guy he is....

He´s not "cool" -- he´s dangerous because he´s got a thug team in the White House. They decide how to "rule" and he plays golf and travels and makes campaign speeches....He didn´t give the "stand down" order for Bengahzi. The hildebeast and moochelle and valerie/iranian did. He´s an affirmative action president. He gets the credit while others do the work. Well -- looks like -- it´s coming round ---- finally...

I heard a radio commentator call this country -- and what it´s become under the regime -- the Regulation Nation.

That says it all....WAKE up demorats. Your "cool" dude is taking you down the river....

Very shrewd thinking, #25.
We have a hat trick of scandals--Benghazi, the IRS, and the AP phonetapping. The best way forward is to use these overreaching blunders to create a 2014 supermajority in the House, and a majority in the Senate. At that point, anything is possible, including abolishing Obamacare.
We the people can create a counterbalance to the Obama regime, and make him the lamest of lame ducks for the rest of his sorry a## second term.
Obama knows this, too. No wonder he was crying yesterday!

Yes, the IRS and AP stories are scandals, but WHY are they all of the sudden being exposed NOW? The Regime is doing everything and anything to take attention off of Benghazi -- they know that´s the one thing that could truly take Zippy down. I hope it doesn´t go the way of Fast and Furious.

I read these things and "sorta" get my hopes up that Obama will be found out to be the worst, most dishonest president we have EVER had and then, nothing happens. I don´t think it will happen this time as there are so many people in this country would not believe it if they actually saw it happen. The only way they would believe is if Obama took away their food stamps, etc. and that will never happen.

RE#25 Lying to the American people specificcaly to affect the outcome of an election is more than just lying. I view it as a deliberate and succesful attempt to subvert the democratic process. I personally dont see any difference in what they did during the coverup than stuffing the ballot box. Least we forget that in lying, the administration also impugned a private citizen for exercising his 1st amendment rights and found a reason to arrest him.

The IRS abuse is also about affecting future elections. Fast and Furious was about pushing thru an anti-gun agenda and future elections. Every scandal is about gaining power, maintaining it or centralizing it. And personally, I´m not sure that Obama is smart enough to be orchestrating it himself. Does he know, yes. Did he ok these actions, yes. Did he sign a memo, probably not.

To believe anything that this administration states as fact "requires the suspension of disbelief".

Rush pointed out that the hassling began right about the same time Obamacare was signed into law. Around March of 2010. It was also a few months after the sweeping Tea Party victory in 2010. Nothing is coincidental with this bunch. Ask David Axelnut.

#25 is right that impeachment would be a wrong course ... for now.

You overestimate however Obama´s "rock-solid" base at 45%. I would peg that base at closer to 25%-30%.

If the drip-drip-drip of news of Obama´s disastrous incompetence and undenialbe mendacity keeps up --as it almost certainly will-- he will lose that 15% padding that is composed of "independents."

It could even happen that public fury at Obama will rise to such levels that there is an overwhelming demand for impeachment. No, I´m not holding my breath ... but I believe it´s now in the realm of possibility.

FTA: "My other friend, also a significant Republican donor, was the subject of an audit that seemed patently unreasonable. In the course of it, the IRS agent explained apologetically that he was just following orders from Washington."

So the "orders" came from Washington. I wonder what would qualify one to be a "significant" donor. Would one actually have to be wealthy as well? When I was working (I´m retired now, but was back on contract for a couple of years, and making a six-figure income), I was actually prepared to plunk down $5000.00 for the Republican Presidential candidate, and was also prepared to donate a "significant" sum to conservative, TEA Party candidates around the country (I did that, anyway, but not as much as I would have liked). I wonder if I might have been the target of an IRS audit had I given that $5000.00.

#37 - I´m reasonably confident that Barry the Fraud is not smart enough to be orchestrating this ´transformation´ by himself. He has no track record of ever having done a thing in his life. Barry is nothing more than the pocket watch being held by that group of hypnotists - Valerie Jarrett and the Czars. Does he stumble in his speech due to the lack of a teleprompter or is he having the 2-3 second delay processing what he is hearing in the speaker implanted inside him. You do recall that large scar on the side of his head, right? Cue Twilight Zone music.

Point being there is no proof that he has more than a modest IQ and he talks like he has no first-hand knowledge of what he is saying.

Everywhere that I have scanned in recent news, there is no mention of Fast &Furious. This disheartens me because the reporters (and therefore public) no longer connect the dots to Holder. Meanwhile Boehner and the other jackboot RINOs are planning on amnesty to give more votes to the Dems. What a very sick country.
Oh and my friends son in Afghanistan reports that since the sequester their Base is only fed once a day. The other two meals or his MREs. There is no transport either. Military leadership appointed by this Admin is very weak. I fear for our future.

Be patient. We are one week into the media actually reporting that bad things happened in Obama´s White House. It took months for Watergate to play out and in the beginning most lo-info voters were wondering what the big deal was. People are just coming forward.

Today you can add Christina pro-life groups to those being hassled by the IRS and that began almost as soon as Obama was in office! Back in 2009 the IRS tried to make approval of 501 status dependent upon all the board members of Coalition for Life of Iowa signing a statement, under penalty of perjury, that they will not picket or protest or organize others to picket or protest outside of Planned Parenthood!

Obama is always up to date on things like Trayvon Martin ,
the Cambridge cop imbroglio ,
college and NBA basketball ,Michael Jackson , Jay Z and Beyonce.
He is apparently spending time following a squirrel on Twitter.
What´s actually happening in the administration he heads- not so much.
I wonder how many in his inner circle will fall on their swords , to the point of going to jail ,
to protect him ?

The Internal Revenge Service expose´ is a last minute "WAG THE DOG" distract from the first 3 State whistleblowers, and more! Those actually AT Benghazi, not permitted to speak of the horrors. Nasty IRS press. a beautiful distraction. Remember, even good Congress guys, back IRS crimes 100%, never talk about eliminating it. Benghazi has been such a wake up call to all media traitors, that something HAD to break to distract all beer drinking citizens. Currently the Puglosi/Feinstein devils in government are attempting to (1) use violence crises to confiscate your gun privacy (2) counter many state laws to not sell cannabis (3)attempting to budget a SIX TRILLION DOLLAR amnesty to bribe illegal aliens votes (leaving millions of qualified foreign applicants back of the bus) (4) introducing Stalinist, communist style medicine with forceful KGB backing of (once again) the IRS (5) Congress tricks to keep the Mexican border wide open forever (6) Holder smuggling thousands of guns to Mexican drug running gangsters (7) Hussein threatening to give our sovereignty away to Islamic controlled NY based UN (8) uncounted Islamic supremicists infiltrating Washington (8) IRS taxing the tax-free internet. Imagine, the IRS to control & punish all these potential criminals: doctors, patients, gun owners, internet purchasers, tea party conservative or libertarian, pot smokers, on and on. Where is Breitbart when we need him ! IRS wins.

A million-man patriot march on DC is long overdue.

Is big-sis reading my emails and tapping my phone calls? Being a veteran and a law abiding, patriotic,gun-owning citizen,I don´t have anything to hide.

Valerie Jarrett wanted revenge. I suspect her to have a hand in this.

If the MSM and Press had done their jobs none of these special investigating committees would have been necessary for all the scandals, corruption and cover-ups. The facts and truth would be out there and the firings, indictments and prosecutions could under way.

Make no mistake - the loathsome MSM gleefully endorses the harassment of conservatives by the IRS. Behind their fake "concern" they are popping the champagne and hoping Obama takes the next steps beyond mere harassment.

I think that there was a confluence of events that convinced the media that it was time for them to start doing their job again; the testimony of the Benghazi whistleblowers, the NYT’s publication of their Pigford investigation on page 1 above the fold, and rumors about the IRS scandal, the DOJ subpoena of the AP’s phone records and possibly other (still secret) scandals.

They must have concluded that if they were ever going to do any investigative reporting on the Won, now was the time; since they will, of course, go back to being the Democrat’s propaganda arm as the 2014 election gets closer. If they dump all the bad stuff now, they can ignore it (as “old news”) if any Republican dares to raise any of these issues in 2014 or 2016.

Morally speaking, Obama and his ilk should be gone from office. Right here. Right now. The powers that be (and Obama be dat powa!) cannot fool me into thinking they didn´t KNOW what was going on. The powers that be (and Obama be dat powa!) have put just enough distance between themselves and the acts committed to have plausible deniability. Obama be guilty as SIN!

Strategically speaking, however, I believe our focus should be on using Obama´s own dishonesty and corruption to knee-cap him politically. Turn him into a political eunich. Let him sing with the Leftist castrati, if you will. But use Obama´s sins to boost a Conservative majority in both houses of Congress. AND ...

Here´s the big AND ... Use Obama´s corruption (which includes Hillary Clinton´s participation) to keep Hillary Clinton from being a viable candidate for POTUS in 2016 and beyond.

Be innocent as doves, says the Bible, but as wise as serpents. In other words, for this case, think strategically. And do so ethically. And remember: Obama is not going away via impeachment. Accept it. But render him powerless.

As caught up in the emotion of the minute myself and most people here are, I agree with #25. You might get one, but unless you get the media whores, it´ll get spun from here to timbuktu that the Republicans are simply out for revenge. Let them think they are in control, then knock it out of the park in the voting booth.

The Shame of Brandeis
Commentary Magazine, by John Podhoretz    Original Article

If you have not yet heard, Brandeis University has rescinded its offer of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-born activist whose work has focused on the barbaric misogyny rampant in Islamic societies like the one in which she was raised—and whose efforts to call attention to them as a legislator in the Netherlands led to a political crisis there and her eventual flight to the United States. Given that it only takes a Google search to find out everything one would need to know about her, including the controversial aspects of her views, it is disgustingly laughable

Demonizing SCOTUS:

When Chief Justice John Roberts rewrote ObamaCare from the bench in order to save it, most of the ramifications were immediately apparent. But there was one aspect of the stunt that as a member of the Supreme Court Roberts should have been sensitive to: precedent. Having caved to a public intimidation campaign from the president and his congressional allies (as well as the media) Roberts signaled that the way to get a conservative justice to discard his better judgment and rule against constitutional law was to impugn the court’s reputation in the public square. Be mean to John Roberts and

Sen. Mark Begich has said repeatedly that he thinks President Obama is wrong about a host of policies, whether on oil drilling, the military or the environment. Begich also has made it perfectly clear that he has no interest in having his fellow Democrat out to his home state of Alaska, saying earlier this year that he doesn’t “care to have him campaign for me.” But that doesn’t mean he’s not looking for the president’s help. Begich has in fact submitted a long wish list to the Obama administration for agency decisions that he thinks would boost his reelection chances.

“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” — Lord Acton.In the run-up to the 2006 mid-term elections, crucial to President George W. Bush’s plans for his last two years in office, scandal reared its hideous head. Again and again. And just for the Republicans. First, House Majority Leader Tom DeLay resigned in disgrace after he was charged with violating campaign finance laws and money laundering. Then, Rep. Duke Cunningham pleaded guilty to a slew of federal charges like bribery, fraud, tax evasion. And right before Election Day, Rep. Mark Foley

The resignation of a Silicon Valley executive who opposed gay marriage and refused to recant has sparked an online fight among gays about whether proponents of same-sex marriage are now going too far in trying to marginalize their opponents socially and economically. The announcement by popular Web browser Mozilla Firefox that co-founder and CEO Brendan Eich was stepping down after two weeks on the job for a 2008 contribution has sparked furious debate over civil rights, privacy and corporate responsibility. A leading gay blogger has accused the movement of displaying the same intolerance activists accuse their opponents of practicing, while

In politics, money is speech

On its present course, the Supreme Court will ultimately overrule its 1976 decision in Buckley v. Valeo, the landmark case upholding campaign finance “reform” legislation. It can’t come too soon, because Buckley expressly ignored the First Amendment’s injunction that “Congress shall make no law .?.?. abridging the freedom of speech.” Instead of free speech, we now have regulated speech that has ensnarled elections in a web of bizarre and opaque rules. Last week, in McCutcheon et al. v. Federal Election Commission, the court began edging away from Buckley by striking down one of its limits on free speech. The details

It’s a big weekend for the Bush family, which is enjoying a renaissance of sorts after several years in the political wilderness. Throngs of former administration officials, members of Congress and others descended Friday on College Station, Tex., to fete former president George H.W. Bush on the 25th anniversary of his arrival in office. One of the highlights of the weekend will be a live interview with his son, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who has quietly been exploring a 2016 presidential campaign. About 180 miles to the north, former president George W. Bush is hosting an event of a

Put aside the numbers for a moment, and the daily argument. "Seven point one million people have signed up!" "But six million people lost their coverage and were forced onto the exchanges! That´s no triumph, it´s a manipulation. And how many of the 7.1 million have paid?" "We can´t say, but 7.1 million is a big number and redeems the program." "Is it a real number?" "Your lack of trust betrays a dark and conspiratorial right-wing mindset." As I say, put aside the argument, step back and view the thing at a distance. Support it or not, you cannot look

In 2008, Barack Obama and Brendan Eich both were against gay marriage. Senator Obama averred his support for the one-man/one-woman view of marriage, while Mr. Eich, a cofounder of the Mozilla web-browser company, donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 — a California ballot initiative that had the effect of making Senator Obama’s avowed marriage policy the law in California, at least until a federal court overturned it on the theory that California’s constitution is unconstitutional. Barack Obama inexplicably remains, as of this writing, president of the United States of America, but Mr. Eich has just been forced out as CEO

Oregon State University, disdaining responsibility for trashing distribution boxes that were intended for a politically conservative student newspaper, has still paid $1,000 plus $100,000 in legal fees after a former student, William Rogers, filed suit against them. The lawsuit, filed in 2009 by supporters of the newspaper The Liberty, contended that the university president and other school officials permitted the official campus newspaper access to distribution bins, but school officials removed the bins for The Liberty. The suit alleged that school officials confiscated distribution bins for The Liberty and tossed them onto a trash heap. The bins, which contained copies

House Republicans have scheduled a vote next week to hold Lois G. Lerner in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify about her role in the Internal Revenue Service’s tea party targeting scandal, setting up a major battle over constitutional rights versus Congress‘ ability to oversee the government. Rep. Darrell E. Issa, the House’s top investigator, said Thursday that as a senior official at the center of the IRS targeting, Ms. Lerner will either talk or face penalties for refusing to help the committee get to the bottom of who orchestrated the targeting and what the motives were. “Ms. Lerner’s

When has a secretary of state been involved in so many disastrous, self-initiated negotiations? First, John Kerry convenes — against all advice and holding no cards — Geneva negotiations to resolve the Syria conflict and supposedly remove Bashar al-Assad from power. The talks collapse in acrimony and confusion. Kerry’s response? A second Geneva conference that — surprise! — breaks up in acrimony and confusion. Then, even as Russian special forces are taking over Crimea, Kerry goes chasing after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov — first to Paris, then Rome, then London — offering a diplomatic “offramp.” Lavrov shrugs him off.

Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

The incident happened at Cuisine of China on Geyer Springs road. In the police report, Don Francis, 74 and his wife Bettye Francis, 69, say they were attacked by Joecelyn Thornton, 33, after Francis asked her to stop cursing. In the surveillance video, a woman can be seen walking over to a table and pushing Francis. His wife intervenes and that´s when Thornton allegedly attacks her, pushing her into a table and punching
