- Federal government demanded a list of everyone a Tennessee organization had ever trained, or planned to train
- Linchpins of Liberty mentors high school and college students and teaches them conservative political philosophy, but is not tea-party-linked
- 'Can you imagine my responsibility to parents if I disclosed the names of their children to the IRS?' asked the group's founder
- IRS Inspector General report listed seven questions the agency should never have asked, but this wasn't one of them
When a Tennessee lawyer asked the IRS for tax-exempt status for a mentoring group that trained high school and college students about conservative political philosophy, the agency responded with a list of 95 questions in 31 parts, including an ultimatum for a list of everyone the group had trained, or planned to train.
'Provide details regarding all training you have provided or will provide,' the IRS demanded. 'Indicate who has received or will receive the training and submit copies of the training material.'

High school kids targeted too...
My my my....
They’re building up quite a list of people that will be refused taxpayer-funded medical care in the future.
The American democrat’s rendition of the familiar antics of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and the like.
He has turned our once proud nation into a third rate banana republic. Has Obama started giving himself military medals and ribbons yet?
We’re makin’ a list and checkin’ it twice...gonna find out who is naughty or nice...
what? you don’t believe in santa claus?
That’s General Obama to you.
And of course, let's have the Justice Dept investigate this...they will leave no stone unturned. /sarcasm
as I said on the DM
The thing is how does he get the IRS to do his bidding, these people working for Obama must have been placed in positions of power before the arrival of the messiah himself, plants awaiting orders.
Tell the IRS to “Bugger Off!”
And the IRS is scheduled to have all our medical records and to decide who gets what kind of medical care starting next year?
It gets more and more fascist every time new details emerge
I passed the IRS audit/anal probing I got after 912 in 2009.
We'll see if the RINOs let Comrade Chairman & Co. pass theirs.
Why is this hitting the news now? This isn't new. If you don't get in line, the FedGov sends the IRS after you. As I have posted before, it is a tried and true tactic to squash dissent, going back decades.
Who has the most to gain from this? Not the GOP, they don't like the TEA party anymore than the Dems.
I keep wondering about the Clinton's.
Almost. The Nobel peace prize.
IRS = Agenda
IRS = Death Panel for opposing views.......
There is no way in hell any party can be in charge of Life and Death
over so many people. That kind of perverted power means DEATH! Pure Evil.
If we had a conservative administration and they were doing this to liberal groups; I would be just as mad; probably more upset actually.
Having big government out of control under our watch would be worse in my opinion. Glad it happened under Obama.
In their downside-up rainbow world, cyber-eunuch termite “warriors” like Bwadley Manning are heroes — and only the royal elite are allowed reproductive privileges.
