As the main stream media tries their hardest to ignore the exploding IRS scandal, someone needs to let them know it’s NOT going away. If today’s reporters and editors were working back in the 70’s, they would be parked outside of the White House and on-air 24 hours a day, attacking and vilifying Richard Nixon. Remember how the Media camped outside the Bush Administration officials’ houses over the Valerie Plame NON-crime, NON-outing Democrat witch-hunt? So it’s obvious, that if today’s media had Nixon in their sites, they would be relentless. And what for? Forget the two-bit Watergate break-in for a second. One of the Articles of Impeachment that was drawn up BEFORE Nixon resigned was in reference to the IRS. Let’s take a look at Article Two of the articles to impeach President Richard Milhouse Nixon:
Using the powers of the office of President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in disregard of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has repeatedly engaged in conduct violating the constitutional rights of citizens, impairing the due and proper administration of justice and the conduct of lawful inquiries, or contravening the laws governing agencies of the executive branch and the purposed of these agencies.
This conduct has included one or more of the following:
He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavored to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposed not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.
Do these violations sound familiar? It’s like a foreshadowing of the Obama administration. But what you have to pay attention to is the word endeavored. Nixon endeavored to use the IRS, but the current evidence that has come out of today’s IRS scandal PROVES that the IRS was used to obtain CONFIDENTIAL information contained in income tax returns for purposes NOT authorized by law.
The Internal Revenue Service has admitted targeting Conservative groups. The IRS has also admitted wrongdoing in releasing the National Organization for Marriage’s (NOM) confidential tax return and donor list which was obtained by the Human Rights Campaign, their chief political rival in the hot-button issue of gay marriage. Just this week the IRS agreed to pay NOM $50,000 to settle a lawsuit that they filed against the IRS for violating the organization’s constitutional rights.
Lois Lerner herself sent CONFIDENTIAL information contained in income tax returns, for purposes not authorized by law, to Congressman Elija Cummings of Maryland. This is a felony! And of course it was tax information on a Tea Party group, AND the voter ID advocate True The Vote. This Group was started by Texas businesswoman Catherine Engelbrecht who is not only an exemplary citizen, but was NEVER in trouble with the law nor any government agency before forming True The Vote. After forming this group, which one of its main purposes is to stop voter fraud, this fascist administration sicked its attack dogs on this private citizen.
She was harassed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms and Tobacco, the FBI, and of course, the IRS. All of these agencies found no wrong doing whatsoever, but instead of working to prevent some of the seventy thousand reports of voter fraud that came about by 5pm election night on November 6, 2012, they spent their time mired in worthless paperwork from the Obama Goon Squad.
Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and we have evidence of TWO full blown fires with True the vote and the National Organization for Marriage. And where there are TWO fires, you just might have a forest fire. Maybe THAT is why the IRS claims that two years of Lois Lerner’s emails were supposedly lost. I say supposedly, because I doubt they are actually lost. The destruction of evidence in a FEDERAL investigation is one of the most heinous crimes a person in the Government can commit. I bet that if there is a grand jury panel to indict Lois Lerner, she’ll remember that “just found” flash-drive that just so happens to have those two years of emails, and use it as her get-out-of-jail-free card.
Now what most people haven’t focused on is the CAUSE and RESPONSE that initiated the targeting of Conservative groups with the most viscous tools the IRS has: the audit and investigation. Lets go back to right after the 2010 mid-term elections. With Obama’s failures coming to light, with all the commercials from political action committees (PACs), the Administration had TWO things to do:
First, they wanted to make sure rich Republican donors didn’t donate to PACs, Super PACs or to the eventual Republican nominee’s campaign. How could they discourage these donors? Put the fear of God into them. Sick the IRS on them and have them audited for no good reason. This will send the message that they should NOT go up against THIS Administration. And of course if they are being audited, they won’t donate. This thuggish, ILLEGAL intimidation tactic was used on the Romney Super PAC donor, businessman Frank VanderSloot, and was the first of many meant to send a message to others who DARED donate to unseat President Obama. Vandersloot was audited personally, AND his business was audited. And the SHOCKING result of the audits? NO fines, or any penalties, his books were impeccable… But the message was heard loud and clear! And in an interview, VanderSloot said he wasn’t the only one.
I talked to only a handful of them (other republican donors) since, I’ve reached out to all of them. But only got calls back from a handful and most of the responses were they’re just laying low, you know, they took their own beatings and they don’t want any more of it and they don’t want to even talk about this.
This is what the Obama campaign, USING THE IRS, wanted to happen: AUDIT BIG REPUBLICAN DONORS INTO SUBMISSION. Doesn’t this sound like the end of Article Two of Nixon’s impeachment papers??? “Violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.” This is PURE Alynski’s rules for radicals tactics: Attack your enemies. But we’ll get back to Obama’s use of “Rules for Radicals” later.
The second prong of the attack from the Campaign to Re-Elect President Obama was that while they had the IRS beating down the big money donors with unwarranted IRS audits and investigations, they had to quell the Tea Party wave that started in 2010. The Democrats suffered the WORST LOSS in the House of Representatives in over 40 years because the Tea Party was born, ORGANIZED and had grassroots funding from private citizens who were mostly small donors. The key word that frightened the White House was ORGANIZED. So what could they do to keep the Tea Party from organizing and bundling their donations in privacy without fear of retribution? The TRIED AND TRUE answer for ALL Tyrannical governments: Sick the IRS on the Tea Party groups.
The bologna liberal talking points about the Tea Party trying to get tax-exempt status was debunked eons ago but the basic protection that a 501C4 status was tantamount for them in organizing and collecting donations. Because, as the New York Times reported, Tea Party supporters are more educated and smarter than most, the organizers knew that the Obama Regime would try to attack their members AND donors, and THAT is the main reason they wanted to organize under a 501C4 status. They could keep their members list private and their donors from the Obama thug squad – the IRS: the Internal Revenue Stazi. This protection dates back to the United States Supreme Court’s ruling in NAACP v. Alabama in 1958, when the Court said that disclosure of names could render private donors vulnerable to retaliation. It’s like they predicted an Obama White House.
The latest news in the ever exploding IRS scandal, after the White House’s original lie that it was just two rough agents in Cincinnati, and Obama’s big lie “Not even a smidgen of corruption”, is that there are six more people who just so happened to be a part of the Lois Lerner investigation. Their hard-drives also crashed and lost emails that were requested in this investigation.
The last addendum to the IRS scandal that might break this cesspool wide open is the involvement of the IRS union head, Colleen Kelley. This is a name that is not familiar to the general public right now but this woman just might be carrying in her hand the smoking gun that could bring down this administration. She is one of the WORST liberal bomb-throwers and she is the head of the main union that the IRS employees belong to. Under her management, the IRS has donated 94% of their money to Democrats and only 4% to the GOP. She was in the perfect position to pick and choose the most ideologically twisted IRS agents to target the Tea Party and not worry about any of them turning into whistle-blowers. The smoking gun? Kelley met with President Obama in the oval office, THE DAY BEFORE the IRS started targeting Conservative groups began. There is NO coincidence in Obama targeting his enemies. Colleen Kelley just might be the key that unlocks the Articles of Impeachment on President Obama.
For those of us who believe that the targeting was ordered from the White House, the Obama campaign in the White House, or the Chicago campaign, the question of whether Obama knew of or actually ORDERED the IRS attacks is where the IMPEACHABLE offense lies. Forget MY opinion for a moment, Conservatives and Liberals, ask yourself this: Would TWO YEARS of Lois Lerner emails have been supposedly lost & destroyed if they DIDN’T connect the White House to the targeting and intimidation perpetrated by a politicized IRS?
If you say yes, you have a brain. If you say no, get off the kool-aid. If you STILL love the kool-aid, look at Obama’s history of lying about scandals. After the death of Border Agent Brian Terry at the hands of the Sinaloa Drug cartel, with weapons that Obama & Holder’s ATF sent them, they tried to blame it on two rogue agents in Arizona. Sound familiar? So when the investigation started into the Fast and Furious operation that killed two US border agents and hundreds of Mexican citizens, Obama and Holder both claimed they knew nothing about it. Once the House investigation committee asked for any and all communication between Obama and Holder concerning Fast And Furious, Obama exercised Executive Privilege and denied the investigators information that they claimed didn’t exist in the first place. In the IRS scandal, instead of using Executive privilege again, they just made the hard drives containing the communication between the IRS and the White House VANISH.
And for those of you on a kool-aid I.V., and don’t believe the HONEST (REALLY?) President could illegally leak private government information to intimidate private citizens, just ask John C. Ryan. He was the Republican candidate with a double digit lead against then State Senator Barack Obama while they were both running for the US Senator seat in Illinois. With out a smidgen of a chance to beat Ryan, Obama’s Chicago Thug Squad some how got Ryan’s embarrassing divorce papers ILLEGALLY unsealed & ILLEGALLY leaked to the media. Ryan was so embarrassed about the nasty divorce revelations, he pulled out of the race and THAT is how Obama got elected in Illinois. It’s obvious that Team Obama has kept up its filthy underhanded tactics all the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
In the run-up to the 2012 election, the Obama campaign saw historically low poll numbers and decided to attack the people that could unseat this disastrous President. Refuse them their right to organize, attack the donors into submission, and that way, the Obama Hope & Change con-job 2.0 would have an easier road to bamboozle the less informed among us.
Now everyone knows of Obama’s arrogance and the arrogance from his subordinates and campaign managers/slime-lords Jim Messina and David Plouf. Obama and the rest of his administration and campaign staff KNEW that targeting Tea Party groups and big money Republican donors was A FEDERAL CRIME. They just didn’t care. Saul Alinsky, an idol to Obama had said in his book Rules For Radicals, that you MUST attack your enemies by any means necessary, because the end result is the only thing that matters. So they broke federal law and assumed because Obama sees himself as untouchable by our earthly laws, he would get away with it.
Let’s hope that the Nation will wake up and that JUSTICE will be done.
