Reporter Claims IRS Harassment After Tough Obama Interview
RedState ^ | May 14, 2013 | Dana Loesch

Posted on 05/14/2013 9:04:54 AM PDT by maggief

St. Louis Reporter Larry Conners revealed via Facebook yesterday that he has been “hammered” by the IRS since his much-discussed interview with President Obama. Conners, a veteran reporter, asked tough, but fair question during the interview which was slammed by progressives in media. Conners says:

Shortly after I did my April 2012 interview with President Obama, my wife, friends and some viewers suggested that I might need to watch out for the IRS. I don’t accept “conspiracy theories”, but I do know that almost immediately after the interview, the IRS started hammering me. At the time, I dismissed the “co-incidence”, but now, I have concerns … after revelations about the IRS targeting various groups and their members.

I never believed in conspiracies, either, until I started researching Barak H. Obama II’s background and posting my findings here on FR back in 2008.

The next 10 months my computer was hacked four times. You can only have your hard drive wiped so many times before you understand that this regime is criminal.

There are some stupid conspiracy theories out there.

I have yet to see any real evidence that there's actually anything wrong with Obama's birth certificate. My opinion: It's all BS.

And I KNOW, for CERTAIN, that the "birth on US soil plus two citizen parents to make a natural born citizen" stuff is all BS.

THIS is NOT BS. THIS is RAMPANT ABUSE, and PEOPLE NEED TO BE GOING TO JAIL FOR IT.

THIS is also where these people are actually vulnerable.

This government needs to fall. Not just the administration, but the government itself. The bureaucracy is obviously out of control and it is allegedly unaccountable to the person in the White House...therefore it is time to end it as we know it.

I’m not proposing a revolution, but I am proposing that Congress take swift and immediate action to cut this beast down to size.

Here's my half-nickel's worth of prediction: President You Didn't Build That will resign rather than try to contend with impeachment. Here's my reasoning:

• Like all leftist extremists, he's a destroyer, not a builder.

• He's never done a day's honest work in his life, and isn't about to start now.

• He's a puppet, not a puppeteer, so he can be replaced with someone with fewer obvious flaws and better durability.

• It wouldn't take any skill at all to cook up a fake heart attack. He could hide out in a hospital room a few days, hand everything off to Joey "the Genius" Biden, and vanish into a Hawaiian mansion, rarely to be seen again.

• The failed main stream "news" media would be glad to abandon a story that might have made them seem shameless sycophants and embellish a new story.

Yes, I remember the “Clinton Body Count”, and “Arkancides”, suicides with more than one bullet hole in the skull.

However, as evil as the Klintoons and their enablers are, they are not stupid enough to go after the very newsies that gave them cover, even when the newsies had to play journalist once in a while.

The naivete of liberals knows no bounds. They applaud the administration for attacking the second amendment, violating the appointment clause, arbitrarily refusing to enforce the immigration laws, refusing to defend the Defense of Marriage Act, and numerous other acts contrary to law, yet profess amazement when their first amendment rights are violated.

When it is accepted that a president is elected to rule rather than to govern, you go from a nation of laws to a nation of men. The direction is set at the top, not by low level functionaries.

The income tax amendment was ratified in 1913. Since then there have been eight Democrats in the White House--Wilson, FDR, Truman, JFK, LBJ, Carter, Clinton, and Obama. We know Clinton and Obama used the IRS against their opponents. I've heard that FDR did (and it sounds believable). Were there any Democrats who did not use the IRS as a political weapon?

Of course it's only criminal when a Republican does it.

The Democratic politicians are put in the position that they have to pretend to be outraged, but are they really? I suspect most Democrats don't see anything wrong with this, as long as the victims are Republicans or conservatives. I heard a Democrat caller on C-SPAN last Saturday say exactly that--that it was fine for the IRS to go after the Tea Party because they deserved it.

The IRS is totally compromised.

ANY opponent of the Administration being audited needs to slam the Auditors with document requests as deep and wide as necessary. The IRS is a proved rogue political attack dog of the 0bambi Administration.

Take them down.

Hey I have some links to some cool tools:

Install Virtual Box: https://www.virtualbox.org/

Then load a linux distro (ubuntu is easy) in the virtual box and only surf sites from there. That way you can backup the virtual machine and if it gets hacked you can “re-load” in only a few minutes while keeping your main system safe.

Conners had asked questions such as:

“The economy is a big concern for folks, I mean the unemployment, trying to make ends meet, gas prices, food prices going up. Some of our viewers are complaining that they get frustrated and angered when they see the first family jetting around different vacations and so forth …

“Putin has nothing on Obama”

Vladimir Vladimirovich is a former KGB colonel and undisputed master of the Russian Federation. We don’t know how many critics of his regime have disappeared. We do know that a number of Russian news reporters have been murdered for speaking out. When the Chechens sowed bloody murder at Beslan, Putin responded a hundredfold in Groznii.

Obama is a sniveling five year old in comparison. If he thinks himself a dictator and has expressed that wish more than once, he is the rankest of amateurs. Putin has the Russian Army & national police to back him up; Obama HAD the mainstream media but he is about to lose that through sheer stupidity.

As for the levers of state power in this country, this is America and not Russia, and if Obama thinks he is riding a conqueror’s horse, he is about to come a cropper in front of an audience of millions.

As for Putin, he is a lot of things but laughable? Never.

I’ve wondered about that myself.

FWIW, I found myself the subject of an audit after giving money to certain pro-Israel causes last year. They were VERY interested in those donations and demanded things over-and-above what they were allowed by law.

I finally filed a suit in tax court to make them go away.

Anyone who has a nose for truth has known this was going on for many years, I wouldn’t try to guess just how far back but probably at least back to the sixties. It is just now being exposed to the light. I really cannot imagine how any adult over thirty could be surprised.

The wife of a Dem bigshot relative warned my wife about my anti-Obama t-shirt designs. She told my wife, “he better be careful.” “Why?” “He just better be careful. He could get in trouble.”

No trouble... Yet.
