Skip to comments.IRS UNION BOSS COLLEEN KELLEY: The Missing Link to Obama?
Posted on 07/13/2014 1:03:30 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
On March 31, 2010, the day before the Inspector General's report says the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) began its scheme to target tea party and conservative groups, the White House Visitors Log reveals that President Barack Obama met with IRS union boss Colleen Kelley.
In a notable feat of investigative journalism, American Spectator reporter Jeffrey Lord exposed what appears to be an unholy alliance among the White House, Democrat members of Congress and the thousands of IRS employees, who are members of the far-left, anti-Tea Party National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU).
The NTEU, which supported Obama in 2008 and 2012, through its political action committee, raised $613,633 in the 2010 cycle, giving 98% of its contributions to anti-Tea Party Democrats. In 2012, the figure was $729,708, with 94% going to anti-Tea Party candidates.
NTEU's Kelley has a long history of interaction with the Obama Administration, first meeting in the White House on January 30, 2008, a mere ten days after his first inauguration, which she described:
"We are looking for a return to what we used to call partnership. I don't really care what it's called. For me, it's about collaboration."
Think about it.
IRS union-member employees financed anti-Tea Party candidates, while in their official positions blocked, audited, or intimidated Tea Party and conservative groups and were urged to do so in letters from Senate Democrats Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Tom Udall (D-NM), Al Franken (D-MN), Max Baucus(D-MT, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee which oversees the IRS), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Carl Levin (D-MI), as well as Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT).
And all of it, apparently, was at least condoned if not directed from the White House.
Lord, who says that Obama is being re-cast from America's first black president to a black Nixon, posed some important questions about the White House connection to the IRS scandal:
Did the President himself ever discuss the Tea Party with Kelley?
Did the President ever communicate his thoughts on the Tea Party to Kelley -- in any fashion other than a face-to-face conversation such as e-mail, text, or by phone?
What was the subject of the Obama-Kelley March 31, 2010 meeting?
Who was present at the Obama-Kelley March 31 meeting?
Was the Tea Party or any other group opposing the President's agenda discussed at the March 31 meeting, or before or after that meeting?
Is the White House going to release any e-mails, text, or phone records that detail Kelley's contacts with not only Mr. Obama but his staff?
Will the IRS release all e-mail, text, or phone records between Kelley or any other leader of the NTEU with IRS employees?
What role did Executive Order 13522, which gave the NTEU a greater role in IRS decision-making, play in the IRS investigations of the Tea Party and all the other conservative groups?
I believe Lois Lerner supervised illegal activities by the IRS, facilitated by NTEU boss Colleen Kelley and initiated by the White House and the Democratic Party.
The IRS scandal also highlights the potential for corruption when public-sector unions and politicians "collaborate" in a pursuit of personal power and profit.
Did the President himself ever discuss the Tea Party with Kelley?
Well, he did with US, when he called us teabaggers!
THE DAY BEFORE.
Circumstantial evidence is more important than eyewitnesses because it can’t be mistaken.
Nixon wouldn’t have gotten this dirty.
Nixon was at least 50 IQ points above this poofter.
...”Nixon wouldnt have gotten this dirty.”...
After seeing D’Souza’s movie, “America,” yesterday, I am totally convinced that Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” is governing this nation. The history is there, the evidence is unshakeable, and anyone paying attention can see the acts which have come down against us over the past 5 years which speak very loudly. Because of a state run media who are acting according to Alinsky’s rules, most Americans do not have the educational resources available to understand that, through lack of knowledge, they are losing their country. The actions of the IRS and the EPA, too, are glaring evidence of the lawlessness against America and our Constitution..And, now the border crisis is with us..Terrorists need not worry..The government is doing their work for them. Please pass the word about the movie. It will open the eyes of most people who have the money and a couple of hours to view it. In my view, if you are a Patriot, you should go and take at least another person with you.
Every asset they have should be confiscated. High crimes and felonies against an attempt at a representative form of government. Try them for treason. Dismantle their gestapo IRS
Then I realized that it was about another scandal, and not his wife...
It does not matter.
The GOP, run by Romney and Soros, will
do NOTHING. NOTHING. NOTHING.
The sooner the better!
That’s a man, baby!
No, that's a pig.
President Obama didn't just threaten its use, but actually had it happen under his watch, as we now know from that happened at the Cincinnati IRS field office. If they can connect Lerner and Kelley directly to what Valerie Jarrett, David Axelrod and Eric Holder wanted in 2009, the political fallout could be tremendous.
Someone should report you to the mods for posting that mug shot.
One of the things we have to do over the next several years is to convert all government union jobs to civil service jobs. Even FDR knew that labor unions and government work was ripe for corruption and conflict of interest.
We need to put an end to it as soon as possible and be comfortable with the knowledge that the American people are with us on this.
A good read about Nixon and the real Watergate, WATERGATE AMENDMENT.
A eye opening view.
The new "bad breath" intimidation, the bullying by the banal.
Now let's see. Where did I read something along the lines of 'my people perish for lack of knowledge'.? Hmmm...
I ain't afraid of no steenkin AM! Good link eCSMaster - Thanks! ;-)
I did take my teen son to the D’Sousa movie. I think what it helped is to give him the truth about the whole story of our negative historical points. Yes, the negatives existed. Slavery, etc. But now he can counteract it with “no other country fought and died to END slavery.” Etc. Yes, everyone should bring young people to see it.
D’Sousa should have edited out the repetitious scenes of earlier parts of the movie though. No big deal, but to young savvy people, who should see the film, this is correctly seen as filler and “look how great these scenes were,” so for the next one, stick to one view of each scene.
