Soros gave $6.1 Million to Groups Pressuring IRS to target Conservative Nonprofits
Conservative News Service ^ | May 15, 2013 | Mike Ciandella

Posted on 05/15/2013 9:38:14 AM PDT by Marathoner

With Soros funding, anything is possible. The growing scandal where the IRS unfairly targeted politically-conservative groups can be traced back to a lobbying effort begun by George Soros-funded liberal groups in 2010, after the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling.

Nancy Pelosi made a comment earlier that it was the Citizens United case that forced the IRS to break the law. Seriously, that's what she claimed.

The IRS acted as Obama’s Stasi. Metaphorically, Conservative groups were taken from their homes by the IRS in the middle of the night and shot. That's about what this amounts to. And the corrupt MSM covered for Obama’s Stasi while this was happening claiming that Conservatives were simply “crazy racists”.

RICO!

Under the RICO Act, a person can be charged with racketeering — which includes bribery, extortion, illegal drug sales, loan sharking, murder and prostitution — if he or she has committed two of the 27 federal and eight state crimes under U.S. legislation within a 10-year period ... This is because he or she is part of a criminal enterprise.

It’s not just abuse of power, it’s abuse in response to bribery. Soros may have given decent Americans the best possible gift by again reminding people that government is NOT the people. Government is power, and power corrupts.

You can bet that this is going to get red hot as there are many Tea Party Republican members elected in 2010 and 2012 that know there was voter suppression now because of the IRS issues with the Tea Party groups. Russ is just talking about it. This will be a BIG BIG storm in Washington.

Check the holdings of some companies on yahoo finance. His holdings vary. Two-three years ago he had holdings in Dollar General, he does no longer. He is an opportunist and looks for businesses that thrive when times are difficult.

In any other venue, this would be considered corruption.

But since George Soros is a “good” NATURALIZED citizen (at least in that failed nation-state that was formerly known as “the United States of America), he gets a pass, because in that realm, this is “just business”.

George Soros has soiled every nest in which he has settled across the world, and some still have outstanding warrants for his detention and indictment for securities and banking crimes against a sovereign nation.

PASS THE WORD: any IRS agent (govt employee) involved in making taxation decisions based on a taxpayer's political beliefs is violating the Hatch Act (applies to govt employees)----and could face criminal charges.

NOTE BENE: Holder is trying to contain the damage---claiming the IRS action was confined to the Cincinnati office.

BUT the Cincinatti IRS office (which seems to have done most of the hands-on dirty work) is the one that controls all the “battleground states” that Obama needed to win in the last election.

Obama's own political support organizations (even outside of the country!) got fast-tracked........BUT any organization he thought might oppose him in those crucial states got silenced or prevented from collecting funds during the time leading up to the elections.

Hatch Act.

Hatch Act:

President Barack Obama signed the Hatch Act Modernization Act of 2012 on December 28, 2012. It

-> modifies penalties under the Hatch Act to allow for disciplinary actions in addition to removal for federal employees (end quote, from Wiki)

Instead of 'in addition to ', I think the "new" Hatch Act lets Obama and his officials determine 'disciplinary actions' and that's the end of it.

Excellent point! We absolutely are running out of time. End of the forth quarter.

This could be what finally lifts the suppression fog enough that people see the game that's being run on all of us and who the real players are.

We might also get some real tax reform out of this, perhaps a flat tax or fair tax, instead of the IRSS and its punitive mountain of indecipherable tax code.

But, right now, the IRSS is our healthcare master, too!

And they are hiring an army of enforcers to make sure that anything you say, do or buy can and will be used against you in the court of your life.

For someone supposedly so stupid, obama (or his handlers) has(have) been the driver(s) of truly fundamental transformational change away from our Constitution and it's guarantees of individual liberty and freedom for all.

We won't last much longer as they complete the last few pieces of the brave new, well ordered, ultra-controlled surveillance state we're letting them build around us.

I bet when you dig into all ObamaGate scandals, you will find Soros behind each scam. Do you really think ‘I dunno’ Obama is smart enough to hatch all of these schemes? Soros is more treacherous than Obama and may likely throw his White House puppet under the bus. But there’s word he’s not too friendly with Hillary, because she’s not willing to act as his puppet, since she wants Soros to be her puppet. It will be interesting to watch Soros and Hillary kiss and make up in the near future. That’s not a match made in heaven, who will betray the other first: Hillary or Soros?

No one he’s appointed needs to be sent an email to trigger their unscrupulous actions. They’re well school in what’s expected of them before they are appointed to office. The only thing they need to put their devious plan in action is a signal from O and he’s given plenty of those through the complient media
