Wait a minute!! The IRS began targeting the Tea Party in 2010?? Then why protest now in 2013? Where was their OUTRAGE in 2010??? What did they expect the IRS would CONTINUE TO DO under Obama???
BENGHAZI - When 4 Americans died after begging for help. And Obama did NOTHING and he and others lied to all of us!
I thought Michele Bachmann was not running again?
Where have I gone wrong on this thing. Seems to me that in 2010 the TEA Party, and various organizations weren’t aware they were “targeted”. They were frustrated, confused, and angry they couldn’t get the IRS to move on their applications, and although they might have been suspicious of such “targeting” what could they do other than what they did at the time? They had no proof.
The IRS only recently admitted they were targeting Conservative TEA Party organizations, so NOW the TEA Party is outraged by the admission of the IRS “targeting”, and asking for contributions to help them fight the evil that is our government today. NOW they have proof. What’s wrong with them asking for money NOW?
This is actually an opportune time for them to ask for money as the whole affair is current, and exposed. People are angry, and will open their checkbooks to help right the wrong.
Am I missing the intent of your post perhaps?
They probably did not yet know there was an organized movement to target them and delay their applications back in 2010. And many likely just found out about it, on the news a few weeks ago, like Carney and 0bama.
I get so so many emails from 2A, conservative so and so, Tea Party, etc. that I’ve finally taken to going right to the bottom and see where the mailing address is. If it is to Bellevue Washington, it’s Alan Gottlieb behind it with at least 3 or 5 corporations he has subbed under another holding corp.
He’s the creep who sided with the Dems and RINOs on universal background check endorsements and then caught hell for it and tried to back out the night before the vote.
If I see BELLEVUE WASHINGTON as an address I junk it (but they keep coming - don’t bother to unsubscribe, that does no good).
This is probably a time for a leader to emerge.
My choice? Sarah Palin.
Sarah and Cruz on the ticket
Congressman Gowdy is my choice or Col. Allen West.
As far as I know, she is not running for the House again. But who knows what else she might run for?
Dittos. Trey Gowdy would be superb.
I am not saying it is wrong for them to protest about ANY of the scandals. But like Rush said, NOTHING will happen to anyone over the IRS scandal....but maybe a few get fired.
And the IRS delays on applications was in the news in 2010. And remember Mitt Romney’s tax info being leaked....by mistake of course!
My point is no one died being delayed or denied tax exzempt status. So where is the OUTRAGE and march on DC over Extortion 17 and Benghazi??
Thank you Friend, for all of your work.
May God bless and keep you.
Thank God for Trey Gowdy and Ted Cruz. At least there are two in DC with gonads. Not great odds for the country.
I'm not talking about the message, fyi.
I do not see a “standard bearer” “leader” coming out of the trenches in any of these fragmented Tea Party organizations around the country...
I’m not saying that in a negative way...
I just wonder, now that Bachmann, Palin are pretty much out of the limelight, and yes, they are...
Be neat to see a good showing of “Joe the Plumber” types to emerge, and sert fire to the process...
Especially when they are confronted by the “establishment” and are told that they “just don’t know how things work in government!”...
My answer to that assumption is very simple...
“Well, whatever it is that YOU think of how it is supposed to work, it isn’t!!!”
I personally would prefer to fire them all, or as many as we can...Show them the road...And them to not go whining and crying about it...We don’t care about these feckless wonders anymore...
But I don’t believe there are very many people out there willing to shake the tree that much...There is no (political) courage left in this country to save us from the government juggernaut...
Too many people believe their representatives are the best in the country...And we should contiinue to support them in what they are doing...
Ok, I can dig it...But, what are they doing again???
Be aware, I like Bachmann, Palin, Cruz, Gowdy and a smattering of others...I just don’t see a real movement happening this time, even with ALLLLLLL these scandals...There is really not enough outrage out there...Maybe some more may surface between now and the next election...But I do not see a lot of changes coming where it needs to happen...
I may have grown (politically) cynical in the last few years, and maybe I should do more, some folks that know me would say I am doing what I can, and I appreciate that, but surely I am not doing what I can for myself...
I’m still trying to figure a few things out...Find some innovative solutions and float them out there for others to take up and see if those things work...
I guess we’ll have to be vigilant, and try to keep a momentum going into a very tough year coming up...
It will not be easy...
we’re fighting a media which will not inform the public, I still meet people even today who have no idea what is going on.
They control the media they control the message and they know it and if we had some in the party who had balls they would take the media and call press conferences asking why you and name names will not report this
Thank you for your kind words!
I pray daily for our troops and for a Commander In Chief who will honor and support our Military.
I also pray that ALL Americans will soon realize the most important issue facing our country is our National Security and National Defense.
I was teaching my Kindergarten class on 09/11/01 when right after the Islamic Terrorist attack, parents came quickly to school to pick up their children. You can be sure the same thing happened across America. On 09/12/01 our County Schools were closed as were schools across America. That means most parents stayed home from work. So what happened to the Economy of America on 09/12/01 due to Islamic Terrorists?
What happened to the Boston Economy after the Islamic Terrorist attack on 09/11/12 when all citizens of Boston were TOLD to stay home?
I hope there is NOT a designated “leader” of the grassroots movement! There are thousands of grassroots groups by various names and their goals are basically the same as far as wanting “limited Government” and Individual Freedoms granted to us by God and mandated in our Constitution.
As Americans we ALL are leaders for Freedom!
exactly what I do and I always get he same questions like are you sure I have not heard this or they think I ma adding a lot to a slight story.
Whenever I can I ask:
Do you know what happened in Benghazi? That four Americans begged for help and they were left to die there?
Obama gave the stand down order...or someone did, we don’t know who. That is why there are hearings, to get answers to questions Obama Administration doesn’t want to answer.
You hit the nail on the head...
I am glad someone else thinks like I do about grassroots activism...
The IRS scandal is bad, but it has exposed government corruption to a lot of Americans. Nothing will be done, of course, but it's exposed nonetheless.
Regardless of whether the Tea Party did or did not know about the targeting in 2010’, and regardless of when they got “ proof", it is more than a bit unsettling that the Tea Party has chosen to March on DC over something that requires no backbone to March against - The abuses of a government department that Everyone dislikes pretty much equally.
The question needs to be answered. Where the hell was all this marching when Americans died in Benghazi?
Thanks, FRiend, for the ping.
To the bottom of my heart I hate to have to admit this but, I believe you are correct.
Americans have become just that shallow. It breaks my heart. I love Sara!
and to all:
Sort of like the converse of the old saw we heard in the Army, “We have done so much with so little for so long we can now do everything with nothing.” These folks in DC know that they can survive anything. So they keep pushing. Like a two year old. They are expert at feigned outrage and controlling the herd. Meanwhile the corruption just keeps getting more and more brazen. Everyone knows there is a “breaking point” where the whole house of cards is gonna topple but no body knows what it is.
During the Klinton years I thought it didn’t ultimately matter because they “couldn’t break anything that couldn’t be fixed”. The line in the sand we couldn’t let them cross was the 2ndA. Now it seems that I was wrong, they can break things to the point it can’t be fixed. With the snooping and blackmail and decades of experience at managing corruption there will be no “leader” or “journalist” who can get in their way. The momentum is just too great. To me, the “line in the sand” is still there because that is the first stop on the bus that we can make an impact but there just is no exit on this freeway before that, it seems. It can be depressing to “see the big picture” and it is like watching a slow motion train wreck which is gonna be a real bloody mess. On the up side, we may not be much of a Christian Nation currently but when the smoke clears the survivors will be believers.
Cynthia Lee Meyers (cousin of one man who was killed in Bengahzi)
If this doesnt make you mad ..
Cynthia Lee Myers (cousin of one man who was killed) Wanted to share the truth of what happened over in Libya , you will not find this in the media.
Here is my story. A week out the Embassy in Tripoli began receiving multiple tips about an Al Queda cell in the area planning an attack on 9/11 in response to the killing of Bin Laden. For the next several days, the state dept and WH were asked for a security force and were denied at least six times. Ambassador Stevens and his team were given the all clear that The Consulate in Benghazi was safe and there was no need for a security force other than his 3 personal guards (One being my cousin) and a few Libyans who were not armed.
Then the attack and murders occurred. Immediately the WH claimed it was a protest gone bad over a you tube video. Obama made a quick speech in the Rose Garden on Sept.12 before catching a plane to Vegas to campaign. He made a generic statement at the end of his speech after placing the blame on an overheated protest over the video. He said No act of terror will shake the resolve of America . Later that day and over the next 2 days, the liberal media began saying Ambassador Stevens and the other 3 men died of smoke inhalation. This was not the case. Out of respect for my cousin, Im not going to be specific about his murder. However Ambassador Stevens was brutally murdered. His genitals were cut off, he was sodomized and beaten and cut and stabbed and burned. He was drug thru the streets and left for dead. This is eyewitness testimony of a local Dr. Who found the Ambassador in a ditch and tried to save his life. He had no idea who he was.
The other 3 men, including my cousin, met similar fates. And deaths due to smoke inhalation is a 100% fabricated LIE. The next week I drove my aunt and Uncle and 2 others to DC to receive his body. We met with Hillary, Panetta, and Susan Rice. ALL of whom apologized and said it was a protest gone bad over a video and exited the area. Next Obama entered with the same story and didnt apologize and wasnt sympathetic. My aunt cried to this man and all he did was hand her flowers and walk away. I tried to get his attention, but didnt. I got upset and yelled liar to him, he kept walking. Then a secret svc agent grabbed my arm and led me to a room where I was held till the proceedings were over.
America, I saw firsthand how cold this man is. What kind of liar he is. Most of you havent a clue about this tyrant and yet you support him. And act like every word he says is Gospel. These murders and the fast and furious cover ups make water gate look like, a kid who told his bffs secret to the class. We must stop this man, and please pass this story along.
..and you voted for whom?
Back to my point about the most important issue facing our country...our National Security/National Defense. Not our economy, or just the IRS scandal. What happened during Extortion 17, Benghazi, Ft.Hood, and Boston are some of the red flags about the enemy we face!
Agreed about the StateRunMedia manc, but the most frightening aspect to me, is the people who; even when presented with a small taste of reality; simply do not care.
Dear Lord, please guide our course.
“”Back to my point about the most important issue facing our country...our National Security/National Defense. Not our economy, or just the IRS scandal. What happened during Extortion 17, Benghazi, Ft.Hood, and Boston are some of the red flags about the enemy we face!””
Agreed fully my FRiend, the enemy is not AT our gates....It is within them.
Dear Lord, please, guide our course.
I can’r read more at the “newslettr”.
WOW! Thanks for sending me “The Rest of the Story”.
I am on the teapartypatriots email list. Virtually every email I get from them is begging for money. They will gwet none from me.
The Tea Party IS NOT supposed to be a national group. If you recall, the Tea Party started off as lots of small, local grassroots organizations. That’s the way it was and that’s the way it should be.
National groups can be taken down easily. Lots of small, independent groups make that a lot harder.
Support your local Tea Party.
In the beginning the Liberal Media tried to make Palin a “tea party” leader. She came out right away and said she is NOT a leader of the “tea party grassroots movement”. Then later as more and more grassroots groups organized under thousands of various names, Michelle Bachman starts a “tea party caucus”. I saw that as her trying to “be a leader of” the grassroots movement. The thousands of Americans in the movement do NOT need a leader! I am my very OWN leader. And every American who loves America and our Founding principals is a leader!
I am pleased that those who have read this thread are not thinking I am trashing those planning an IRS rally, but just very disappointed that they think not having tax exempt status because of IRS actions is more important than Extortion 17 and Benghazi.
Sorry, not sure why you can’t. All I can suggest is to go to the site and try another link.
This will make the front page of the NYT, WACOMPOST, LAT, Gannett newsrags, etc. And it will lead the news on ABCNNBCBS, PMSNBC and NPR...NOT!
I clicked on your link. It says “Have a nice day.” No article. It’s been pulled?
It opened OK for me. Try right clicking and “open link in new tab”.
Nope. That’s what I always do, new tab. It just doesn’t open for me.
Sorry, don’t know why it won’t open for you. Guess you are talking about the “newsletter” link. I don’t know why you can’t open it.
Me neither. I can’t even get on their site. Must be a setting on my machine. Oh well. :-)
“His genitals were cut off, he was sodomized and beaten and cut and stabbed and burned. He was drug thru the streets and left for dead.”
Yes. And DC WATCHED it.
Well I’m in...I wanted to attend the Audit the IRS rally this Wed but can’t get off work. But if we could plan a HUGE rally for the fall to protest ALL of the crap that has been going on I think we’d get a tremendous turnout. On the other hand, I was at the big Tea Party rallies in DC and the crowds were enormous and the evil press completely lied about the numbers. As long as they have the press, it will be difficult. Still, I’d go - and I think A LOT of others would too.
makes it a bit more difficult to get the word out other than in freerepublic when your assets are diminished by not having tax exemption..no? Isn’t this what it was all about with the IR of S??
