IRS agent: Tax agency is still targeting Tea Party groups
Washington Examiner ^ | 8/8/13 | PAUL BEDARD

Posted on 08/08/2013 2:39:40 PM PDT by Perdogg

In a remarkable admission that is likely to rock the Internal Revenue Service again, testimony released Thursday by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp reveals that an agent involved in reviewing tax exempt applications from conservative groups told a committee investigator that the agency is still targeting Tea Party groups, three months after the IRS scandal erupted..

Why would the IRS stop?

The House of Representatives has done nothing.

It's not like anyone was, or is going to be hold accountable.

On the contrary, I bet they put the pedal to the metal with regards to abuse of IRS power.

Well, Congress has shown NO TEETH in yanking the chains of those involved. Issa should have had Lois Lerner back in front of the committee the next day and told her that she waived her 5th Amendment privilege by testifying about her innocence.

She can answer questions or stand in contempt of Congress.

I have had enough of this garbage. Boehner needs to get his thumb out or resign today.

“IRS: If a political advocacy case came in today, I would give it — or talk about it to my manager because right now we really don’t have any direction or we haven’t had any for the last month and a half.”

Your hard earned tax dollars at work.

I have a very reliable source within the White House (the Oval Office, no less) that says the NSA only rarely captures any information.

They just happened to catch that back-pack, pressure cooker lady and her husband by accident.

Every agency of the federal government was on duty or standby to help Obama’s reelection.

If, as it appears, no one will do hard time for these crimes, isn't it prudent to assume the hammer will come down harder on the rat's political enemies in 2014 and harder still in 2016?

Reform cannot possibly come from Wash DC, from the institutions which profit from the mess they created.

Impeachment it the equivalent of water off a trolls back

There must be extreme harsh punishment

The kenyan sees weakness in Boehner & McConnell and is twisting the knife. Conservatives are getting more and more disgusted by GOP inaction. The Dems know that and are turning up the heat trying to increase the division in the party.

It is the same reason these goose stepping Dems are pushing amnesty so hard. Divide and conquor the GOP. Everybody with a IQ above 50 knows that this the Dem playbook for 2014. Yet the GOP leadership stooges are taking the bait. Unbelievable

I’m hoping, probably falsely, that Issa is digging dirt on her, so that when he does call her back, she’ll be totally screwed! I hope, I hope.

John Boehner has been blackmailed into protecting 0bama.

The Coup has occurred, and the IRS continuing with targeting people for their political beliefs continues unless and until Lois Lerner and her ilk are criminally prosecuted!!

Dial 202-224-3121, ask for Speaker Boner and DEMAND he back Daryl Issa up on the many investigations: F&F, Benghazi, IRS + FEC, DOJ spying on Fox News, NSA targeting Americans, etc..

What happened to follow-up of Hillary's Benghazi testimony? Call her back! What about Lois Lerner? Is she at home, logged into IRS database changing past Emails to read differently?

THE LONGER THE GOP WAITS TO INVESTIGATE AND HOLD HEARINGS, THE LONGER THE EVIL REGIME HAS TO CORROBORATE THEIR LIES AND CHANGE THE DOCUMENTS!!!! THIS HAS ALREADY HAPPENED RE:BENGHAZI, WITH NEW ACTORS FOUND WHO ARE WILLING TO PRETEND THEY WERE THERE IN BENGHAZI AND WILL LIE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED!!!

Boehner needs to deal directly with the WH. Put some demands on the kenyan to fix the OBAMA IRS. It is not the job of Congress to play whack a mole with the executive branch.

Boener delegated this to Camp and Issa because he doesn’t want to take any action. He thinks he can tip toe to Nov. 2014 and use this as a campaign issue. That will back fire big time as the GOP base is demoralized by the lack of action regarding the trampling of our constitutional rights.

I agree. But who will call for it, and when can it be done?

Harsh punishment will not deter any Hitler, least of all, “ours.” Unless it is meted out BY AMERICANS, FOR AMERICA, we are puppets.

Let us start at the TOP and impeach, and work our way down. It will take all of America, and the COMMON goal to preserve our Republic with its rights before anything can be accomplished.

And here is where the 2nd Amendment comes in...

That’s right; if they were punished twice as hard it is still no punishment (2 x 0 = 0). If Repubs ever get back in power they’ll never show the capacity for total war demonstrated by the Dems...

The news media have everyone even on here focused on Trayvon and other crap.

if the news media doesn’t make it big news then it isn’t happening.

Obama’s IRS, FEC and other gov agencies shut down the tea party movement .

Obama ordered the IR$ and other gov agencies to rig the election for Obama and democrats in the Congress.

This is a coup.

We have to demand recall of this Obama and the rest of the communists/democrats who stole the election of 2012. Impeach this communist Kenyan Obama now

why aren’t the conservative media Rush, Levin, Savage , here,Palin, Hannity, Fox ,Coulter, drudge etc shouting this from the rooftops? :”

Obama ordered the IR$ and other gov agencies to rig the election for Obama and democrats in the Congress. Obama must be impeached.

This is a coup”.

Everyone is quick to blame the GOP for everything but what are we doing, are we protesting like in Egypt? no . where is the “conservative” media? nowhere either.

The first three tiers of the government should be dismissed, impeached, sued and/or imprisoned. And it should be retroactive for anyone, media, government and anyone in between, to have to answer for the despicable conduct that this government has been guilty of for the last almost eight years.

If it were up to me, I would take no prisoners...

WHY do we have a Congress...? I don’t get it.

Apparently they have NO power and do not mind if they’re not taken seriously.

IN FACT, this simply makes clear that WE ALL now do not take them seriously.

NOT voting for a non-Tea Party candidate.

EVAR.

When WE do something about it. That’s when.
