Posted on 05/13/2013 3:51:53 AM PDT by Olog-hai
A timeline of Internal Revenue Service activities that was developed by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration and provided to congressional staff indicates that early last yearas the nation was headed toward a presidential electionthe IRS issued a be on the lookout order (BOLO) for officials in its Determinations Unit to ferret out for heightened scrutiny organizations applying for tax exempt status that were involved in educating Americans on the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
The inspector generals timeline indicates that as early as March 2010 the IRS Determinations Unit had begun targeting for special scrutiny organizations that used in their tax-exempt applications the words Tea Party or Patriots.

An untimely death or two will curtail this sort of thing
What about the four D-E-A-D Americans...those are not speed bumps!!! Those are graves and families with dead sons!
The Republicans didn’t ask for the apology that was given out of the blue freely by the IRS mostly as a response to the IG report which becomes public this week, thanks in no small part to Mark Levin’s Landmark Legal Foundation. He went around the IRS and filed a complaint with the Treasury Department IG Office. If they are willing to give up that info, what else is there in the low hanging fruit they are willing to give up to protect that which is much higher.
If I were an employee of the Cincinnati office and heard that on the news, I would have been taking a long coffee break to get in tough with my lawyer, or find one, and have him contact the House and Ways Committee chairman to invoke the whistle blower status. Cantor has already said they will be initiating hearings and from what I have read, two others, one of which is Judiciary.
Of course it would. The "Demo-Left" has morphed into the party of King George III. Having people understand the Constitution is the LAST thing they want.
the government is collecting our emails other data...tool for abuse
There have been accusations in the past of several Presidents using the IRS as a private army against their enemies. This time there are memos. Memos are call proof! Yep everyone, the laws of this land have been broken. If this is allowed to stand, precedent is established, and if Conservatives ever win back control of this government ... get ready big media ... get ready all liberal organizations ... Conservatives will be allowed to come for you with precedent for protection. Precedent .. a lovely legal term that word ... Precedent.
High up in the IRS? It may be even higher--possibly as high as President Obama. In short, this is abuse of power at a truly frightening level.
They are in for a long ride. These sorry sacks of puss are traitors and should be hung.
It's way past time for Civil War II!
“abuse of power” was one of Clintoon’s but the House voted it down
Obama must be impeached for this , using the IRS like a gestapo which it is of course as government is evil and doesn’t work.
Also targeting conservative groups invalidate the U.S. presidential election of 2012.
Obama and Obamas IRS targeted conservative groups during the election to rig the results of the election.
The buck stops with Obama
impeach the POS
What they may have done with the IRS is criminal, extortion for starters. They have to get from the IRS operatives a to the executive White House offices to lay a glove on the turd. Do I think they are involved in this matter at the IRS, I would say the probability is 60-40 at this point and that will be adjusted when we see who was directing this at the IRS which hopefully will be on wednesday. Right now they are playing checkers, one jump at a time. Hopefully they don't jump too far or the inquiry will fizzle. On the IRS matter, they need a special prosecutor pronto so those who carried out this crime can be immunized to move up the chain. Congress is not the place to do this as the inquiry would be obfuscated by the dems and shut out by the media.
Impeachment in the United States is an expressed power of the legislature that allows for formal charges against a civil officer of government for crimes committed in office. The actual trial on those charges, and subsequent removal of an official on conviction on those charges, is separate from the act of impeachment itself.
Impeachment is analogous to indictment in regular court proceedings, while trial by the other house is analogous to the trial before judge and jury in regular courts.
Typically, the lower house of the legislature will impeach the official and the upper house will conduct the trial.
At the federal level, Article II of the United States Constitution (Section 4) states that “The President, Vice President, and all civil Officers of the United States shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.” The House of Representatives has the sole power of impeaching, while the United States Senate has the sole power to try all impeachments. The removal of impeached officials is automatic upon conviction in the Senate. In Nixon v. United States (1993), the Supreme Court determined that the federal judiciary cannot review such proceedings.
Impeachment can also occur at the state level; state legislatures can impeach state officials, including governors, according to their respective state constitutions.
At the Philadelphia Convention, Benjamin Franklin noted that, historically, the removal of obnoxious chief executives had been accomplished by assassination. Franklin suggested that a proceduralized mechanism for removal impeachment would be preferable.
IMO, this leak may be an admission to something smaller (and this is not small) before a much larger and more wide spread crime is uncovered.
I’m getting tired of the references to the IRS having done this or that. The IRS does not issue directives, PEOPLE DO!
Just like Benghazi and Fast & Furious, these directives originate from individuals who have the authority to give such orders. These people need to be publicly identified & FIRED - now, not a year from now.
Technically the IRS harassment and summary refusal and failure to follow proper procedure is a violation of due process rights of the applicant corporations/organizations.
Even more serious is the violation of applicants Civil Rights Act concerning Hate Crime, which is exactly what the IRS engaged in relation not only to conservatives but also in relation to jewish organizations based on racial descrimination.
IT IS HATE CRIME.
Hate Crimes have been commited in the name of Obama fascism.People need to be tried, convicted and punished. If the president was involved , it is a high crime worthy of impeachment.
Its time for America to rise against the Obama fascist government, its Czars and political operatives, who seeks to nationalize and socialize The People, in order to destroy the Republic.
