WASHINGTON It was the nearly silent bombshell of the IRS scandal, but it may have been one of the most significant.
When the IRS stripped the Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty, or PHC, of its tax-exempt status, it ... may have been the most audacious power play yet by the left in its use of the department to wage war on conservatives.
Additionally, the PHC is unique among the IRS recent known victims:
Unlike the tea-party groups, the PHC did not spring up after the 2008 election of President Obama, but has been around since the 1990s. It was approved in January 1998 as a 501(c)(3). Based in Manassas, Va., the center was founded by former FBI agent and best-selling author, Gary Aldrich, a ferocious critic of Obama and the Clintons.
As for Aldrich, when news of his targeting broke it didnt cause the kind of sensational headlines as when America learned the IRS had been demanding tea-party groups report what prayers they had been saying and which books they had been reading.
But this latest development may indicate, somewhere along the way, a turning point had been reached, one in which the IRS went from defense to offense, and instead of just stalling applications, went on the attack.
Even more ominously, the order to have the IRS dig up information to prosecute conservatives was given to the Justice Departments director of the Election Crimes Branch of the Public Integrity Section by someone higher up in the chain of command.
That means the orders either came from someone in a position of top authority at the Justice Department, or, someone at the White House...

Isn’t the Patrick Henry Center based at an old church? Good tape by the way. Obama is the price we have to pay to get another Reagen.
We are not going to get another Reagan.
Oddly, you can still make a tax deductible contribution to Media Matters:
Issa and the Oversight committee should jail Lerner until she coughs up all of the e-mails.
Any investigative body with contempt power and a shred of self-respect wouldn’t put up with her.
We are not even going to get another actually election.
Based on their lack of visible outrage, I believe many if not most of the Republicans in congress are perfectly happy for the IRS to ruthlessly suppress Tea Party and conservative organizations.
The biggest threat to the GOP establishment is the Tea Party:
Like Rush I do believe that secretly the GOP likes very much that the IRS is targeting it’s chief political enemy.
I think people who still have faith in the Republicans are simply DUPES.

This is why I am promoting the idea that there should be the Government Employees Surveillance Program. The American people should be able to keep tabs on all politicians and government workers 24/7 to make sure they stay in line. The moment it goes into effect all of the cockroaches will resign and scurry away into the dark.
The GOP and the Dems are on the same team of the political aristocracy and 1 percenters. It’s individual conservatives, the Tea Party, and other conservative groups that are the biggest threat to them all.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

When an agency becomes a weapon of a political party (or both political parties both?) it no longer serves a useful function of the people, by the people, for the people.
It is time to DISMANTLE the agency.

“We are not going to get another Reagan.”
I agree. Americans and the politics have changed so much since Reagan, America will be lucky just to get Communist lite.
... or, worse, a Hillary Amin.
