IRS-Gate: From stonewalling Congress to Federal Election Commission collusion to harassment of already-tax-exempt conservative groups, the IRS scandal metastasizes. Someone high-up was clearly giving orders.
'Phony scandals," to use President Obama's term, should not generate near-daily news coverage from a media that would like nothing better than to see its dream president let off the hook. Yet everywhere you look comes another bolt of lightning keeping this Frankenstein monster "alive!":
In addition to conservative organizations being ultra-scrutinized in applying for tax-exempt status, existing conservative groups like Morton Blackwell's Leadership Institute, around since 1979, and the Claire Booth Luce Policy Institute, founded in 1993, were slammed with costly audits by Obama's IRS in the months before the 2012 election. **snip**
National Review reports that on-leave IRS tax-exempt division head Lois Lerner was in e-mail contact with at least one attorney at the Federal Election Commission where she used to work to whom she apparently gave tax status information of a conservative group, the American Future Fund, before the FEC lawyer recommended "that the commission prosecute it for violations of campaign-finance law." The FEC also asked about the conservative American Issues Project.
A House Ways and Means Committee analysis found conservative groups were asked three times as many questions by the IRS and had longer delays than left-wing groups seeking tax-exempt status.
A June 26 letter made public last Thursday from the IRS inspector general to House Ways and Means Ranking Democrat Sander Levin of Michigan "makes it clear the inspector general believes Tea Party groups did have it worse than progressives," the left-leaning National Public Radio conceded.

I hate to say it, but the media WILL keep ignoring this scandal. I hope I'm wrong.......
It cain’t? Watch it!
This author underestimates the media's powers of wilful ignorance.
The media has proven it can ignore pretty much anything up to the point of a plane hitting the tower.
In a sane country there would be demands for trials, convictions and sentencing for the traitorous thugs in such an administration and in the fifth-column media complicit in such treason.
Did you see this? The IRS doesn’t to have to use ObamaCare for their exalted selves. That’s for the ‘little people’... they have better...
In a sane country, this would be the death knell of any administration.
I hate to say it, but the media WILL keep ignoring this scandal. I hope I’m wrong.......
Keep pushing till it reaches a tipping point that cannot stop its forward momentum leading to calls of resignation of The One.
There was a funny letter to the editor in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette the other day.
It said that the press would be leaving George Zimmerman alone since he changed his name to Ben Ghazi.
Ubama’s first words were “Uh, I....I.... er....uhhhhh...heard about I when you folks did.”
“Regardless. IIIIIIIIII am going to get to the bottom of this and heads will roll for the persons responsible.....”
Yep, the only phony around here is you, you twit.
The title should read ‘Media shouldn’t be allowed to Ignore New Developments in IRS Scandal’ ‘cause ignore it they surely will.
Prosecute the SOB. 0bama engages in the Trayvon fiasco but didn’t know about IRS/FEC voter suppression of the Republican vote in 2012? And this WILL CONTINUE through to the midterms AND 2016 because we’re under dictatorship now and the Congress mistakenly thinks they’re relevant.
A nicely planted story about the IRS targeting the NAACP.....
Really?........ Really?......I mean REALLY?..............
The title should read Media shouldnt be allowed to Ignore New Developments in IRS Scandal cause ignore it they surely will.
I agree, it's the information in the article that SHOULDN'T be ignored in a sane society.
7 posts! Oh, wait, wrong topic :)
Lerner must be executed for crimes against the Republic
No other punishment is adequate
What would happen if EVERY GOP CongressCritter and Senator agreed to raise these subjects on EVERY appearance on EVERY show on EVERY channel of the MSM?
Second question; what would be the top ten GOP excuses for NOT DOING THIS?
The thread you're looking for would be titled:
Three FR Birthers, um er.....Media can't allow Cruz to run.....
Did you just hijack this thread?
