Rep. Dave Camp: 100 Percent
of Groups Audited by IRS
Were Conservative

Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/12/2014 5:03:24 PM

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R., Mich.) said Tuesday that the committee’s investigation of the Internal Revenue Service found that 100 percent of the tax-exempt groups that were flagged and targeted with an audit were right-leaning. The Wall Street Journal reports: “We now know that the IRS targeted not only right-leaning applicants, but also right-leaning groups that were already operating as 501(c)(4)s,” Mr. Camp said in a statement. “At Washington, DC’s direction, dozens of groups operating as 501(c)(4)s were flagged for IRS surveillance, including monitoring of the groups’ activities, websites and any other publicly available information.

And we are surprised about this? The Race Card is alive and well! The Democrat "Get out of Jail Card" has never been stronger. The Republicans cannot make the argument that Free Speech is not free to the detriment of this country´s citizens. Read how the Roman Empire dies and weep for our children.

I´d enquire as to the whereabouts of "Clean" John Boehner, but he has common cause with those who target conservatives.

Nixon supposedly did this on a small scale, but resigned before if could be pursued and proven.

Clinton did this on a larger scale, but it was whitewashed and swept under the rug in lieu of pursuing the Monica Lewinsky perjury.

Now 0bama is emboldened and doing it in the open, daring us to do something about it.

I swear, if the Repubs. take the Senate and hold the House in November and give this crook a pass on this I am staying home in 2016.

WSJ, we have known this for 6 mos. So again, who in DC directed this action? Who released Romney´s personal tax information? Who released the Christine O´Donell tax information in her Senate run? Who released the Koch Bros. tax returns? Who directed the EPA, the ATF, FBI, and IRS to visit and intimidate the Tea Party Patiots? Quit re-shuffling old stories, WSJ, get out of DC, and go find out who and why the Obama administration is involving itself in criminal activities.

What difference, at this point, does it make? The election is over, the boy king still sits on his throne. The Republican leadership is without a strategy as to how to fight anything but the conservative base. The IRS is the muscle of the Obama administration. The media denies reality. The fundamental transformation of this country is roaring right along. All´s well in Obamaland.

I am surprised. I can´t believe that they didn´t audit a couple of left leaning groups just to give their talking points a smidgen of truth. I guess I gave them too much credit in assuming that the libs and the press care one smidgen about truth. My bad.

I´m not surprised that the RINOs are just talking and not pushing hard to end the practice, the TEA Party groups are actually more of a thorn in their sides then they are for the dems. Incumbents are more likely to lose in their primaries than in the general elections.

Other articles printed over the last two weeks reveal that the IRS personnel is predominately Democratic. Apparently Nixon wanted to use the IRS to punish his democratic opponents, but failed because the rank and file of the IRS rebelled.

The rank and file of the IRS would have been all too willing to audit Conservative Groups.

To clean up this mess, you are going to have to clean-out the IRS, and to do this you are going to have to send a lot of high ranking mucky mucks to prison for a long, long time; and you are going to have to threaten the lower rank and file with salary cuts, pension cuts, and so forth to discourage them.

Nixon never did this and anyone that thinks he did are misinformed at best. At the time the IRS boss bragged that even if they had been asked by Nixon they would never have because they were liberal and working against Republicians even in the 1960s. Somethings never change.

The way federal hiring works is a RINO like Lamar Alexander has a close buddy named Marvin Runyon, and he ends up in the Postmaster General´s job (yes, I know, allegedly nonpartisan, but more bipartisan the old way under POD).

First thing Carvin Marvin does is order up a reorganization wherein ALL the Republicans in management jobs get canned.

You realize that NOBODY in the Republican party leidership ranks is going to do a thing about a situation where an alleged Republican big dog, veted by other alleged Republican big dogs, fires or demotes a bunch of federal government managers or top end staff people.

But that happened, and it happens all the time. It´s not really the fault of the Democrat rank and file that they are there but rather it´s the fault of the RINOs in Congress and their flunkies they get a Republican President to appoint, or who get by a Republican dominated board ~ it is a common case that Republicans get removed and Democrats promoted in these blood purges.

Almost the only way we can REMOVE the Democrats in the federal line agencies (like IRS) is to work back from the corrupt top couple of appointees and remove the people they promoted, and just keep working backards removing them left and right until we´ve got rid of everybody who benefited from a Democrat appratchik´s promotion policy.

We need to do that where we´ve had a Republican top dog as well, since those kuckers have been removing the Republican career Civil Service folks as well.

I certainly hope there aren’t any Tea Party groups making new applications. Those who have applications pending should withdraw them, then pull an ACORN and “disband”.

The communist cabal has broken the social contract. Citizens no longer have the civic duty to comply with their unconstitutional and unlawful edicts. Do not self-identify by complying with permitting and registration schemes. I’ve heard that the new Connecticut gun registration law has been met with a big yawn. Officials believe anywhere between 10,000 and 50,000 Connecticut gun owners have not complied. It’s a shame so many weapons have been lost.

Long Island Sound is overflowing so terribly many boat accidents have happened during the big storms this winter ~ and in every case literally hundreds of firearms were lost all the way to the bottom.

It is so sad.

CT´s officials are going to have to learn to adapt to this human made disaster and start buying their own guns and ammo.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

In 2009, in the earliest weeks of President Barack Obama‘s administration, the White House made the controversial decision to take the unprecedented step of moving the Census Bureau from control of the commerce secretary over to the White House ahead of the decennial 2010 census. Conservatives sounded alarm bells. “It takes something that is supposedly apolitical like the census, and gives it to a guy who is infamously political,” said Rep.

Just in time for tax deadline day, a new Gallup poll finds that a majority of Americans -- 52 percent -- say they pay too much federal income tax, while 42 percent say they amount they pay is "about right." Three percent said their federal taxes are "too low." Gallup says the percentage who say their taxes are "too high" has hovered around 50 percent since 2003, although the current 52 percent is up from the 46 percent who said "too high" two years ago. While a slim majority of Americans say their federal tax burden is too high, roughly the

He’s not “unknown”, and he didn’t just pop up on the horizon. The alleged killer of three at the Overland Park (Kansas) Jewish Community Center and a nearby Jewish retirement home didn’t just “appear out of nowhere”; he’s a man who has been in the public eye before, right here in the Kansas City area and elsewhere, along with his foaming-at-the-mouth anti-Jewish and white supremacist views. The suspect, identified as Frazier Glenn Cross of Aurora, Missouri, is also known as Frazier Glenn Miller or simply Glenn Miller. As Glenn Miller, he ran for the U.S. Senate from Missouri in 2010.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
