The IRS Admits To "Targeting" Conservative Groups, But Were They Also "Leaking"?
The Daily Caller ^ | May 13,2013 | Matt K. Lewis

Posted on 05/13/2013 7:48:09 AM PDT by Biggirl

A little over a year ago, I reported that, ”It is likely that someone at the Internal Revenue Service illegally leaked confidential donor information showing a contribution from Mitt Romney’s political action committee to the National Organization for Marriage, says the group.”

Recall that the depraved Obamatons took control of the census when they occupied the WH. Did they use confidential census info in conjuction w/ confidential IRS data to target opponents?

==========================================

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. Romney will not do anything about it.

=================================================

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, gun-rights groups, militias, home schooler orgs, Romney, and/or Republican hdq's during that time.

This went way higher than “low-level staffers in Cleveland”. Z-street, one of the Jewish organizations also targeted, reported that the IRS told them that they would be investigated by the branch in Washington DC because they opposed the administration's policies.

Targeting was due to sequestration budget cuts?

This is exactly what the Nazis did...

Use all the power of government to go after who you consider to subversives, opponents and enemies of the state.

The real question is: “Why is this IRS scandal being exposed NOW, and by whom?”

There is one obvious answer: Obama is wagging the dog by pushing out the IRS story in order to defocus attention from Benghazi, which could lead to impeachment. At worst, the IRS thing will result in an apology and maybe a few firings of underlings.

There is a REASON this IRS stuff is coming out NOW, rather than a week or a month ago. Don’t doubt me ;-)

If Rush doesn’t lead with this question today, it may be time to hang up the golden EIB microphone...this is a smoke screen that is perfect for the intended purpose of deflecting public attention away from the real scandal, just like a burglar tossing raw meat to the guard dogs.

Revealing the IRS intentionally targeting and disseminating private information and going after certain political groups is pretty damn serious stuff.

But I do agree with your assessment and would not doubt it for a second.

See tag line below.

Government employees increasingly vote for 1 Party. That party in turn supports large, intrusive Government.

So, we have Government employees self-interest, and now their political ideology, coming together to form a positive feedback loop. That means Government will become more leftist and activist as the ideology of its employees becomes more and more uniform.

Someone mentioned that Benghazi was the control point of the “Fast and the Furious” middle east that this admin was doing in Mexico.

The underlings better start blowing the whistle on the higher ups before prosecutions begin against this Cincinatti office in order to protect their big boss Obama.

Obama To Ohio State Grads: Reject Voices That Warn About Government Tyranny

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2013/05/05/obama_to_ohio_state_grads_reject_voices_that_warn_about_government_tyranny.html

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Unfortunately, you've grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that's at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They'll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices.

Dead right. I didn’t mean to dismiss the IRS stuff as insignificant, but “follow the money” - this is coming out of the most secretive adminstration in history, if they can keep Obama’s college records and BC out of sight they could have deep-sixed this whole IRS thing too. It’s not coming from whistleblowers, it’s coming from the Gov’t Itself...that should be a huge red flag.

Someone is benefiting, or it wouldn’t be happening. And the IRS sure isn’t doing this for it’s own good.

My question: is the misuse of the audit power for a political purposes a crime? Same question for the disclosure of confidential taxpayer information? There were criminal charges in the State Department passport scandal and this appears to be a bigger, worse attack on our democracy.

The IRS stuff is really bad. Hard to believe Obama would leak it on purpose.

Any chance CIA behind it.

Not only that, but as opposed to the IRS Nazi like scandal, the Benghazi event has top people in government, Hillary, Obama etc, caught red handed lying multiple times.

Benghazi is 1000 times more serious than the IRS story, as it directly affects those at the top due to their exposed cover up.

Harry Reid’s taxer conspiracy theories against Mitt Romney “show me your papers please!” may have had deeper roots.

How much collusion was there between the DNC, IRS, and MSM in the 2012 election?

The seriousness of the charges should mean congressional testimony under oath. Certainly it’s more pressing than steroid use by entertainers.

That same party promises them 90% of their salary annually into perpetuity as pension payouts (not demonized or threatened as 401k savings are) in exchange for their brand loyalty.
