The IRS Mafia: Hush Money and Politics...IRS targeting of Christine O’Donnell “not an aberration.”
American Spectator ^ | 7.25.13 | Jeffrey Lord

Ex-IRS Employee: IRS targeting of Christine O’Donnell “not an aberration.”

It wasn’t an accident.

And the IRS has used hush money.

A former IRS employee — that would be IRS employee-turned-whistle blower Stanley Welli — tells The American Spectator that the IRS targeting of Delaware Republican U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell, a Tea Party favorite, was neither “isolated” nor “an aberration.”

O’Donnell was recently notified by the IRS that the agency had “received information that your personal federal tax info may have been compromised and may have been misused by an individual…”


The episode launched Welli on an endless professional journey inside the IRS, ending at Welli’s retirement when he described the IRS as:

….an arrogant and self-protecting bureaucracy. I observed misuse of power, abuse of authority, fraud, lies, cover-ups, payoffs, hush money, spying on, whistle-blowers, punitive tax reviews, whitewashed grievance complaints, trumped-up criminal charges, retaliatory investigations, happy-face congressional testimony designed to deflect reform — and systematic denial.

When Welli and his two colleagues reported the misdeeds of the allegedly mobbed-up IRS employee, an IRS colleague snarled: “The organization will get you, you whores.”...

And the IRS has used hush money.


Christian Churches that are IRS 501 C-3 (tax-exempt) accept Barrack Obama's POLITICAL HUSH MONEY ... their 30 pieves of silver ...

in exchange for a COVENANT AGREEMENT (with Satan) to stay out of politics ...


Jesus Christ paid His taxes to Rome and Caesar.

That's a fact.

Why should you recommend that American Churches DISOBEY Christ's example ?

Are you saying that American tax-emempt (politically muzzled) churches are "wiser" or "more spiritual" than Jesus Christ ?


The Christian Churches that Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and George Washington attended were indeed "tax-exempt" ...

but their Pastors WERE NOT POLITICALLY MUZZLED like American Christian Pastors today.

American Church "tax-exempt status" is a CLEAR "voluntarily-accepted" BRIBE for POLITICAL SILENCE.


What does The LORD God command about bribery ?

Exodus 23:8

And you shall take no bribe, for a bribe blinds the clear-sighted and subverts the cause of those who are in the right.

Rashputin ... you say that issue is all about Government Control of American Churches.

"WHEN" ... American Xhurches JETTISON the SPIRITUAL CURSE of IRS 501 C-3 ...

then they will "genuinely"" be FREE of Government Control.

Suggestion: Ask your Pastor thus Sunday to read IRS 501 C-3 from the Church Pulpit.

Just make sure you've got your bible, cellphone and car-keys in your hands ...

IRS Section 501(c)(3) vs Freedom of Speech

By Mike Foil (Bio and Archives) Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Canada Free Press


"Tax-Exempt Organization” - Sounds pretty good and sort of makes you wish you were one, doesn’t it? You must ask, whenever the government (IRS) tells you that you can keep some dollars in your right pocket, what are they taking out of your left pocket?

When was the last time you heard of a church that was not approved by the IRS as a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt organization?

It seems that it is almost automatic that a church is approved by the IRS for this status. What is the benefit to churches to be classified as a 501(c)(3) organization?

Receiving this status allows individuals who contribute to the church to deduct their contributions as an itemized deduction on their income taxes.

If a church did not meet the requirements of a 501(c)(3) organization, those contributions could not be deducted for income tax purposes.

Sounds like a win-win situation! Not so fast, the IRS is not Santa Claus.

It does not give away revenue out of the kindness of its heart. Be skeptical anytime the government appears to be giving you something for nothing.

We accepted money from Washington for our public schools - now the Department of Education dictates some curriculum and mandates local spending on liberal agenda items.

We accepted highway money from Washington - now we are threatened with the loss of these on-going funds if we do not tow the line in other areas.

Why does the government let us deduct contributions to churches? What do they get out of it?

When a church is approved as a 501(c)(3) organization, they forfeit part of their freedom of speech rights. That is the payoff to the government.

From that point on, that church cannot risk being fined and the loss of their tax-exempt status by speaking out on political matters or passing out material for or against any political campaign.

The government has just silenced organized religion when it comes to the affairs of politicians. Churches are afraid that the loss of their IRS status would mean the loss of contributions.

But, aren’t all churches required by the IRS to file for 501(c)(3) approval? No, they are not, based on the IRS tax guide for “Churches and Religious Organizations”.

Quoted from page 3, “Churches that meet the requirements of IRC section 501(c)(3) are automatically considered tax exempt and are not required to apply for and obtain recognition of tax-exempt status from the IRS.”

It goes on to say, “Although there is no requirement to do so, many churches seek recognition of tax-exempt status from the IRS because such recognition assures church leaders, members, and contributors that the church is recognized as exempt and qualifies for related tax benefits.”

So, what are the “requirements of IRC section 501(c)(3)”?

There are several, but two of importance in this discussion are summarized as follows: first, “no substantial part of its activity may be attempting to influence legislation,” and, “the organization may not intervene in political campaigns”.

They explain that intervening includes speaking out for or against any candidate, raising funds for political activities, passing out literature for or against any candidate, etc.

It was not always the case that the government restricted political speech in churches.

In the early part of this country, preachers speaking about political issues were not uncommon. Four of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were preachers. Most of the Founding Fathers were religious.

he IRS web site has a link to a document, “Election Year Issues”. Within this article is contained some background to IRS 501(c)(3). Page 336, “Prior to 1954, there was no statutory provision absolutely prohibiting organizations described in the antecedents of IRC 501(c)(3) from engaging in political campaign activities.” The Revenue Act of 1934 had established the lobbying (legislation) restriction of 501(c)(3), but the campaign activity restriction was not included.

In the Revenue Act of 1954, Lyndon Johnson had successfully added an amendment restricting 501(c)(3) organizations from campaign activity.

As I am not an attorney or an accountant, there are other issues relating to whether or not a church should or should not apply with the IRS for 501(c)(3) status (consult your professional for legal advise).

But, the government has been successful, by offering tax benefits to those who comply, in closing America’s pulpits to political speech.

Soon after the Revenue Act of 1954, with the preachers effectively silenced, government became more bold in its attack on religion and America became more lax in its morality.

By the 1960’s, we were dealing with the removal of prayer in schools and the “free love” movement. We also began to see the dismantling of the typical family unit and the “women’s lib” movement.

How has the trade-off worked for better? The churches may have more contributions from their members, but probably have fewer members due to the decline in morality and the lack of interest in organized religion.

How were churches able to generate necessary funds prior to the IRS letting contributions be deductible? That is easy, the members did not expect special tax benefits and gave out of love of the church or at least obedience to the Word.

If a church were to give up its 501(c)(3) status, gain back the free speech from the pulpit, but lose the tax benefits to the members; what would the members do?

Would they change churches or stop giving to their church? I would hope not.

I believe that with the proper education the members would understand the importance of not having the preachers censored by the government and would appreciate the stand being taken by the church leaders. God did not instruct us to give where we gained a financial benefit from the gift, He just told us to give.

Sometimes, the old-fashioned way of doing things was just better!

Interesting take. Here is the problem

1) If a church becomes a tax paying entity, it also becomes a target for the gangster thug IRS, and Obama will destroy,/bankrupt/close every conservative leaning church we have. GUARANTEED.

COD MUST reveal who in DE government was responsible. Indict him, frog march out the door at high noon and sentence him to life at hard labor, without parole.

I wonder what part Old Joe Biden’s little boy, Beau, played in this debacle. It would be right up their alley.

And to the NSA trolls, FU.

John ... thanks for your reply ...

The local church's "legal corporation" (the entity that pays the light, insurance bills, and the FICA taxes (et al) for the staff salaries ...

is by DEFAULT (ie. born that way) "taxable corporation" ...

vis-a-via it's "creation" as a State controlled entity (ergo the multitude of forms required for incorporation.

Church corporations (as described above) do not "appear from thin air" ...

they are created by the GOVERNMENT AUTHORITY at the request of the citizens(s) filing the papers.

these Church "corporations" are thus OWNED FROM BIRTH by the GOVERNMENT.


May I gently ask a question ?

You stated that If a church becomes a tax paying entity, it also becomes a target for the gangster thug IRS ...

Was Jesus Christ a "taxc paying entity" to Caesar and the Imperial Goddless Roman Empire ?


Jesus Christ paid His allocated taxes to Caesar in His statement " Render Unto Caesar" ...

But did that act of Christ paying His (due) taxes to Imperial Rome ...

STRIP Jesus Christ of His supernatural power ?

Not at all.

Not at all.

Not at all.

Not at all.

Not at all.

Not at all.

Not at all.

Not at all.

So why do American Christian Churches think that they are BETTER than Jesus Christ when it comes to paying taxes demanded (perhaps unfairly) to a pagan, heathen, sodomite Government ...

be it either Caesar in Rome ...

or the Sodomite, Islamic-Butcher-of-Christians, and Advocate of Murderous Child-Genocide (like King Herrod) ...

"Barrack Hussein Obama" ?

” So why do American Christian Churches think that they are BETTER than Jesus Christ when it comes to paying taxes ..”

I don’t think they do. If it were just a matter of paying Caesar, that would be one thing. Much more is at stake here, than taxation. But the Christians I know, and associate with, don’t believe in enabling the spread of evil, or Godlessness, if we can do something about it. As Christians, we are supposed to spread the Word. I understand that this is our temporal existence. We are saved by the grace of God, not fighting evil on earth.

I believe Obama would close every Christian church tomorrow, if he could devise a way to do it. I won’t help him, by foolishly exposing my church to his desires.
