Internal IRS Mandate: 'Be on the Lookout' for 'Organizations Involved In ... Educating on Constitution and Bill of Rights' May 12, 2013 By Terence P. Jeffrey

(CNSNews.com) - 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 year--as the nation was headed toward a presidential election--the 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 general's timeline indicates that as early as March 2010 the IRS's "Determinations Unit" had begun targeting for special scrutiny organizations that used in their tax-exempt applications the words "Tea Party" or "Patriots."

The IG's timeline says that in March-April 2010: "The Determinations Unit began searching for other requests for tax exemption involving the Tea Party, Patriots, 9/12 and I.R.C. § 501(c)(4) applications involving political sounding names, e.g., 'We the People' or 'Take Back the Country.'"

In July 2010, according to the IG's timeline: "Determinations Unit management requested its specialists to be on the lookout for Tea Party applications."

But 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.'"

All of this (below) should be sent to Cong Issa. He should find out what the Obomba/DOJ knew about his campaign using IRS abuse at election time. Probably stupid Romney will not do anything about it.

To a leftist, there isn’t any reason to attain government power if you’re not going to use it to enrich yourself and your friends,
and target and punish your enemies.

The Chicago way is just leftism writ large.

Now we know why Obomba was so cocksure of himself---when he told Putin he would "have more leverage after the election."

The Chi/mobsters ensconsed in the WH were colluding to sic the IRS on conservative groups to rig the results of the election in Obomba's favor.

A sitting US president using the power of the IRS like a 40's-era Gestapo surely invalidates the presidential election of 2012.

Let's look at reports of break-ins at the Tea Party, patriot groups, Romney or Republican hdq's during that time.

Just a small error in judgment by a few over eager but well meaning low level employees?

Maybe it was the janitor.

Exactly!

Many of us have been clamoring to have them shut down the Department of Education and kill the teachers unions.

The organization that has detailed information on all people. The organization that has the power (but not the right) to seize assets.
The organization that can close businesses.
The organization that can hound innocent people.
The organization that is never responsible for its mistakes.

is now being used for political ends.

When government workers abuse the power that they have over people they must go to prison.

It would be a waste of time for Diogenes to look for an honest man inside the federal government.

I am sure everyone has heard this, but the IRS was demanding Facebook pages and Forum posts for those Tea Party, Constitution, Bill of Rights, etc. groups, which of course would lead the jackboots down to private citizen and their opinions on ANY of the subjects Obama the IRS was looking into on any given day.

In other words, a window into those groups is a window into our personal taxes and activities. I posit that once they were down that far they could determine who was worthy of getting Obamacare, or any other government goody now, or in the future.

Somebody is dumping IRS chum into the water to draw the media sharks away from good ship Benghazi.
It won’t work.
The same people are responsible for both.
Someone’s getting desperate.
This must be one of the only moves they have left.

The Fed income tax and IRS were created in 1913 to be sure the Rothschild bank got the money back that it printed and loaned to US. To increase their profits and enslave US, they want US to borrow as much as possible; that’s why they push socialism and war. The Constitution, Bill of Rights, and education citizens are their enemy; as well as Christ who knows all about banksters and their paid operatives.
