Posted on 05/26/2013 10:24:39 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Though the White House has insisted the IRS stopped formally targeting Tea Party and conservative organizations in May of 2012, two attorneys representing conservative organizations have claimed the IRS's targeting may still be ongoing.
Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) and Cleta Mitchell, the attorney representing True the Vote, have evidence their clients are still being targeted.
According to National Review, Sekulow "plans to file suit in federal court in the coming weeks on behalf of more than two dozen conservative groups that claim their harassment at the hands of the nations tax authority continued long past the White Houses purported end date."
At least ten organizations the ACLJ is representing still have not received their determination letters. National Review notes the Albuquerque Tea Party applied for 501(c)(4) status in December of 2009 while Linchpins of Liberty applied in January 2011. Both organizations still have not received their letters.
Sekulow told the publication that "to suggest this tactic ended a year ago is not only offensive, but it is simply inaccurate as well. He said the White House's timeline of events "simply does not square with the facts."
True the Vote, the nonprofit that trains workers to find and report voting fraud, is waiting for approval as a tax-exempt organization three years after initially filing its application with the IRS....

They need to find out the individuals involved in sue them personally. Bankrupt these people before putting them in prison.
They will sacrifice a few flunkies and go right ahead with their Chicago politics.
Of course they will. Why wouldn’t they? It was successful for the purpose it was intended for and there is very little in the way of consequence.
“They will sacrifice a few flunkies and go right ahead with their Chicago politics.”
It is long past time to sacrifice a few Chicago flunkies and get on with America, the right way.
The damage has been done. There are millions that will no longer donate to conservative groups any longer.
The trust in the system is gone. You can’t get it back.
Why STOP?... Who is going to stop it.... Eric Holder?..
Barry Half-White.?.... She whose name should never be spoken?..
Of course they are. As long as someone like Holder is running the DOJ, who is going to stop them. That’s their job. They work for Barry now.
Approval, hell! If they are trying to prevent voter fraud they're lucky to still be alive.
As a matter of fact, the night before the most recent Benghazi hearing, Susan Rice was given a 'Great American' Award. And then, Lois Lerner allegedly 'refused to resign'.. WELL THEN, OBAMA.. FIRE HER AZZ. Oh no, paid leave (SIX FIGURE PAY) is her 'punishment'. What a JOKE.
The coup of 2008 will march FORWARD, as well as the scandals.
Obama’s IRS rigged the election of 2012 by preventing tea party groups from getting started. And the IRS is still doing it all set to rig the election of 2014
IRS is gearing up to target everyone.
They are practicing on Conservatives first.
That's not damage; that's a feature. Mission accomplished regardless of court action. Obama and Holder score again.
No, John, you're no Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Trey Gowdy, Louie Ghomert, patriots all to name just a few, who stand up, speak out and FIGHT. BUT, you can be, with the support and admiration of We the People standing behind you. This is YOUR World War II, John, and can you hold your head high and say you fought and did your best..remember, others gave their lives so that you and I can live under the Constitution. No one’s demanding that you “shed your blood”...we're demanding that you DO YOUR JOB, that you DO THE RIGHT THING, and stand up and speak out and ACT against this socialist enemy in OUR White House. You have the position and the power to do so, but can your love of your country trump your apparent cowardice and dereliction of duty? We're waiting, John, and time is fast running out. Either you will be known in the history books as a coward, a traitor, a man who valued political gain more than his country, OR you will be spoken of as a man of honor and courage who did his duty, stood up for his country and made his father, his mother, his wife and children proud, and himself worthy of the appreciation and support of We the People.
It's up to you, John. Look back to the our Founding Fathers, to all patriots who gave their all in the founding and defense of this country. They did their part, and now it's time for you to do the same.
Naa, expected. No one has been held accountable, so why end it?
Why isn’t anyone calling this PROFILING.
Why should it stop? It’s not like anyone has been fired.
These guys in Cincinnati have to be shaking a bit. They aren’t making $150k a year in salary. When the prosecution guys or the congressional demands to appear occur....they have to hire real attorneys and watch their life savings go down the drain. It’ll take less than a week for them to wake up and realize they might have to pay $100k in legal fees to avoid jail, and we aren’t even at the civil court level yet in actions that might occur. I would imagine a fair number of folks with enough time in to retire, will leave that office....even if they weren’t involved in the episode. Fear and consequences will worry them too much.
Of course. They’ll just be sneakier about it now.
The GOP and traitor BOEHNER do not care.
THEY are not conservatives and are not impacted.
They should care. The money’s drying up for them and other Rep-E candidates as well.
From this statemeent they admit they had a role in it. When do we impeach this usurper?
To quote Al Gore, “There is no controlling legal authority.”
It’s till going at the EPA when organizations are vetted in FOIA requests according to whether or not the organizations are “helpful” in disseminating the EPA message.
Of course it’s still going on. We have an thrice admitted foreign born twice unconstitutionally elected communist that the RINO party has refused to do anything about time and time again. And with communism what do you get? Tyranny. So why would he stop? If the press in Cuba reports that Castro is targeting the press or political groups does he stop? No, he goes after them even more, he destroys them.
Of course they are. In the minds of Progressive Chauvinists, it’s always morally justifiable in their minds to persecute the enemies of socialism-
For the same reason that black on white crime isn't a "hate crime" and affirmative action is not reverse discrimination.
We really do need a giant asteroid to end "society" as we know it.
John Boehner has the power to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT AND REFUSES TO DO SO.
Exactly. This stuff is going on NOW. Boehner needs to be engaging the kenyan DIRECTLY. Tell the WH, you either 1) fix this NOW or 2) prepare for a govt shut down because we won’t be funding a fascist government.
Boehner and the beltway GOP are complicit in these assaults with this limp wristed tip toeing response.
What a shock!
We the People know what we must do.
1. TELL BOEHNER HE MUST ENGAGE OBOMA DIRECTLY.
2. TELL BOEHNER IF HE REFUSES TO DO HIS JOB, PREPARE FOR A GOVERNMENT SHUT-DOWN BECAUSE WE WON'T BE FUNDING A FASCIST GOVERNMENT.
Clear and straight to the point. Get on the phone and call Boehner at his Washington number, his office number in Ohio, and DELIVER THE MESSAGE. We must apply pressure and not let up until Boehner dose his job. Tea Party organizations, now is the time to band together and get out there with signs and loud voices and DELIVER THE MESSAGE TO BOEHNER. WE HAVE THE NUMBERS AND WE NEED TO BE THE TOWN CRIERS AND SPREAD THE WORD. It will be up to We the People to set a fire under Boehner, shame him (his father served in the US Army in WWII)by reminding him his father did his duty when our country was in peril..NOW IT IS TIME FOR HIM TO DO THE SAME..STEP UP AND DO YOURJOB AND MAKE YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER PROUD, YOUR WIFE,CHILDREN AND SIBLINGS PROUD, WE THE PEOPLE PROUD BY BEING THE PATRIOT AND DOING THE JOB YOU WERE ELECTED TO DO. PUT ASIDE YOUR POLITICS AND DO YOUR JOB TO SAVE THIS COUNTRY.
I'm calling Boehner and my local Tea Party Patriot group tomorrow and I hope others will do the same. Either get off your chair, put down your electronics and non-essentials and get involved, or kiss this country good-bye.
Boehner - Benghazi, MIA
Boehner - IRS, MIA
Boehner - Wire Taps, MIA
Boehner - AP records, MIA
Boehner - Fast and Furious, MIA
Boehner - Covering for Islamic criminals, MIA
In my opinion, it is not government policing itself that has exposed the corruption -it is the few leaks and the few leakers that have stepped off of the government plantation to get the word out. The best thing conservative leaders can do is establish an independent (independent from the government bureaucrats) whistle-blower clearing house that protects anonymity and enables information flow so that the necessary information gets to those that wish to stop the corruption.
We need the headlines going into the elections so the more the merrier.
No one is going to be fired. Or maybe, just maybe, someone’s getting promoted to the Inner Party from the bureaucrat ranks of the Outer Party. (Lerner was just the beginning.)
Oceania is at war with Eurasia. Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia and East Asia is our ally....
Or is it the other way around ? I dunno....
We’re in massive trouble as a country.
... and in other news, drunks are still drinking, car thieves are still stealing cars, wife beaters are still beating their wives.
Put them in jail. These people don’t stop their bad behavior just because someone noticed and pointed it out. Not when they are still loose and getting away with it.
