Probably why we are not tax exempt. To avoid some of that risk.

If you really want to get inside Hillary's head and discover how she thinks, check out Barbara Olsen's 2001 book, "Hell To Pay".

"The Final Days" is another book by Olsen, published just after she died on 9/11/01. Both books are hard hitting.

Hillary is way more evil than nobama, simply because she's been at it for much longer.

Obama even publicly joked about auditing people. Given it was happening at the time, was this a threat instead of a joke?

I don't know about others here, but I can walk and chew gum at the same time. Benghazi and IRS should keep the flames fanned.

As for Obama’s complicity, it may just be a case of a Thomas Becket replay: “Will no one rid me of this pesky priest” or something like that. I don't really know and see no point in wild speculation. Of course, that makes it the “safe” scandal for the MSM.

“by the beginning of the 2012 election year, the IRS had adjusted its “be on the lookout order” to more generally target groups that were involved in teaching people about the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

On Jan. 25, 2012, according to the inspector general’s timeline: “The criteria was revised as ‘political action type organizations involved in limiting/expanding government, educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, social economic reform/movement.’”

The inherent admission is that the present government is an enemy of the Constitution,

and the Constitution is an enemy of the present government.

Mystery Aircraft Frightens Quincy Residents

By Bill Shields, WBZ-TV
May 9, 2013 11:59 PM

“Every night for nearly the last two weeks, residents have spotted a low-flying aircraft

“It’s frustrating, it really is,” says City Councillor Brian Palmucci. “I specifically asked, ‘Is it a law enforcement flight? Can we tell people that?’ He said, ‘No, we can’t tell you that.’ Then I asked that when folks call me can I at least tell them that it is something that they shouldn’t worry about, it’s something they shouldn’t be concerned with? He said, ‘I can’t tell you that.’”

Sources tell WBZ that the aircraft is not a drone, that it is manned. FAA spokesman Jim Peters would only say, “We have to be very careful this time” concerning information.”

Obviously when the federal government wants to keep something quiet, they keep it very quiet. In this case, they wouldn’t even say how long it would continue flying for. “

Using the IRS improperly was an article of impeachment for Nixon ...

From President Nixon's articles of impeachment:

1. He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavoured 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 intitiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.

...why on earth would the IRS come out and admit this...voluntarily? Between this and Benghazi...

Michelle Bachmann is right on this: Lambasting the IRS gives the culpable media a big reason to deflect some of the public's attention away from Benghazi, which is what is happening. Overall so far, FReepers seem to be in some agreement that this tactic, which has worked many times in the past, won't work as well this time. Enough people are on the look-out for dog-wagging now.

Anyone who thinks that this didn’t come from Obastard is a fool. This is EXACTLY the kind of dirty politics that he is used to in Chicago.

THATS a great article. Everyone should be reading it.

Obama is basically a little fascist peckerwood bully.He also is a coward, as proven by his conduct on Benghazi.

Obama has committed hate crimes by using the IRS to violate citizens Civil Rights, and he should be tried and punished by Congress.

Back in May 2009, Professor Glenn Reynolds:

“Just a joke about the power of the presidency. Made by Jay Leno it might have been funny. But as told by Mr. Obama, the actual president of the United States, it’s hard to see the humor. Surely he’s aware that other presidents, most notably Richard Nixon, have abused the power of the Internal Revenue Service to harass their political opponents. But that abuse generated a powerful backlash and with good reason. Should the IRS come to be seen as just a bunch of enforcers for whoever is in political power, the result would be an enormous loss of legitimacy for the tax system.”

No doubt that this was a part of the Friday bad news 'dump' to distract from Benghazi ...

However .... this was already going to come out this week in a report by the Treasury Dept.'s IG so they were preempting it too: The Treasury Department's inspector general for tax administration is expected to release the results of a nearly yearlong investigation in the coming week. The AP obtained part of the draft report, which has been shared with congressional aides.

And just wait until these corrupt political scumbags are in charge of our health care! I am so scared of what has happened to our country. I feel like we are living in the soon-to-be Soviet States of America. I struggle not to hate every person I know who voted for this Soviet administration. Hope they feel good.
