The Internal Revenue Service has revoked the tax-exempt status of a conservative charity for making statements critical of Hillary Rodham Clinton and John Kerry, according to a USA Today report.

The Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty, based in Manassas, Va., “has shown a pattern of deliberate and consistent intervention in political campaigns” and made “repeated statements supporting or opposing various candidates by expressing its opinion of the respective candidate’s character and qualifications,” according to a written determination released Friday by the IRS.

And these are the people who will be handling your “fines” if you don’t buy into the Obamacommiecare scam. Yeah, no abuse will be going on there. “Oh I’m sorry Mr. Conservative, but since you didn’t buy Obamacommiecare we’re going have to put a lien on your bank accounts and garnish your pay”

How about reviewing the status of “black churches”?

Past criticisms of Hillary Clinton only matter if she’s cleaning up prior to a future run.

Don’t tell me that “rogue group” of “Cincinnati” smidgens is at it again! Those ignorant, low information types never learn.

The tyrannical IRS and Obamacare must be repealed if the United States, as we know it, is to survive.

put a lien on your bank accounts and garnish your pay

Freedom is more important than paychecks and bank accounts.

I have neither. Nothing for anyone to hold hostage.

Nothing about the NAACP’s status even after it has actively shelled for Democrats for years?

Me thinks this IRS action could come back to haunt the IRS as precedent-setting IF Pubbies wise up and go after the LIB tax-exempt organizations.

A Fox News poll published last week revealed that 49 percent of American voters believe the IRS intentionally targeted conservative organizations.

That it isn't 90-95% spells our doom.

LOL! You sound like me. The IRS put a lien on my bank account 10 years ago. That was the last time I had a bank account. Now I pay everything with cash, money orders or pre-paid credit cards. Never again and I don’t give a damn what it does to my credit.

Yep...

Both sides have always pretty much turned a blind eye.

Now the Left has declared war on Conservative groups.

It’s very chilling. You almost expect them to have to start wearing a large insignia so they’ll be easily identifiable.

“That was the last time I had a bank account. “

I guess that means no retirement monies anywhere but maybe in land. No investments, pretty meek lifestyle to live.

The IRS needs to be eliminated. Lock, stock, and barrel. How have we as citizens accepted this monster in our midst.

Yellow stars just won't work well with my wardrobe.

The Internal Revenue Service has revoked the tax-exempt status of a conservative charity for making statements critical of Hillary Rodham Clinton and John Kerry, according to a USA Today report..neither is now running for office, so how are any statements made about them to be considered election rather than merely informative activity as the law allows?????.......

IRS doubling down on their corrupt leftist political activity, an “in your face” to the House Oversight Committee.

I use the “mattress” method of saving LOL! Seriously though, I will never trust this government again with one cent of my money, no way no how, especially after this Obamacare scam which to me is just one more excuse they will use to steal your money.
