Z-Street Wins Ruling Against IRS Ė Was Targeted By Obama Officials Because of Itís Pro-Israel Views
The Gateway Pundit ^ | 5/31/14 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 05/31/2014 11:00:48 PM PDT by Nachum

Z Street representative Lori Lowenthal Marcus spoke out in March 2013 about the harassment the pro-Israel group received from the Obama IRS:

“They told us terrorism happens in Israel. Therefore, they had to look into our organization because they thought we might be funding terrorism. We’re a purely educational entity. We didn’t fund anybody. We barely funded ourselves.”

Remember: This is the same administration that wouldn’t call the Benghazi massacre a terrorist attack but accused a pro-Israel group of supporting terror.

that agent said that a determination on Z STREET’s application may be further delayed because the IRS gave “special scrutiny” to organizations connected to Israel and especially to those whose views “contradict those of the administration’s.”

WOW! They came out and actually said it.

The portion that don’t really care about Israel. Most of them are liberals, and buy the Dems’ propaganda about so-called “Christian Zionists”.

his ruling will force the IRS to open its books on the procedures it used and decisions it made reviewing Z Street’s tax-exempt application, procedures it has tried to keep shrouded. As the case proceeds, Z Street’s attorneys can seek depositions from many who have been part of the larger attempt to sit on similar applications by other conservative groups.

Very important. To bring the Alinsky Fascist to justice, you must hit them with pin pricks from every direction. This will draw blood.

I see these cases taking a very long time, but prison for many in the end.
If the culpable ones were smart they would open up now for a deal.

It's not just the Mafia who will sell each other out. The comparison is legitimate
and the organized shake down are from the same cloth of tyrants.

What does it take to change the 70 % block voting of Jewish people for Fascist Democrats?

Word for Jewish Voters:
“ Fascism: Noun. - - - A system of Government characterized by rigid one-party dictatorship, forcible suppression of the opposition - - - “

Hitler, Hitler,
He’s our Man!
If he can’t do it,
Obama can!

Won't see a lot about this in the media, the IRS persecuting pro Israel organizations, no harm no foul, there just aren't enough conservative organizations to go around.

My sarcasm which I rarely acknowledge aside, it's an important ruling. Apologies to those leftists supporting use of government in racial and religious jihads, in the interest of political domination, but maybe the entire judiciary hasn't boarded you ship.

Good grief, of you can't use the organs of government to your advantage when in power, what's the point of politics. Not sure where I learned that, ask Holder, he'll know. Probably Stalin or someone of his ilk

Well, who exactly are the "suckers" and the "idiots"? Z Street is a real pro-Israel organization. It was formed as a counterweight to the Obama-puppet organization J Street. Not surprising that the Obama IRS is giving them the detestable "Tea Party" treatment.

Most pro-Israel American Jews did NOT vote for Zero. Those Americans abroad in Israel, for example, voted about 85% for Romney, 15% for Obama. Problem is that too many American Jews regrettably don't care very much about Israel's predicament.

BTW, the head of Z Street is also a FReeper.

Did they win this at the Supreme Court or a Federal Court?

If the latter, the IRS might fight this all the way to the SCOTUS...

Sadly, I don't think that Z Street won too much of anything at this point, contrary to the article's headline. What happened was this: Z Street filed a complaint, then the IRS responded with a motion to dismiss, which the (federal district) judge denied at this early stage of the litigation, instead ordering the defendant IRS to present a formal answer to the complaint.

This was essentially a procedural ruling, notifying the IRS that they'll have to present a more substantive argument to defeat Z Street's claim that the tactics used by the IRS were unconstitutional.

Hate to put it this way, but the facts are that this particular judge is a young black female appointed by Obama. One might expect her to be leaned on by those who pushed her nomination to do what she is "supposed" to do. In other words, don't expect Z Street to obtain much success at the district court level. Unfortunately, it would seem as if they got the "wrong" judge. But there are still rare pleasant surprise.

“Most pro-Israel American Jews did NOT vote for Zero.”
__________________________________________________
I did a a simple search “Jewish vote for Obama”.
The first five results show 69 to 70 percent.
Why is that?

Think it was the judge on FOX that pointed out the discovery on this case would be interesting

Yes, that's if they wind up having discovery. But, being pessimistic about it, the hunch here is that the IRS will pull out all stops to prevent that from happening, and will lean on this Obama-appointed judge to see that it never does happen - at least as long as she is presiding over the case.

Of course, if discovery is denied, there may be some recourse for the plaintiff at the Circuit Court (appellate) level.

I suspect that the real number was closer to 60%. What happens is that just about all this polling is done by pro-'Rat organizations who benefit by skewing their polling techniques in such a way that 'Rats are oversampled. They most likely didn't poll too many orthodox Jews or relatively recently arrived Jews from Russia and the Iron Curtain countries, because of language and/or cultural differences with the pollsters. Those two subgroups voted majority Romney. In general, there are many practical problems in sampling American Jews because there is a lot of diversity in both thought and culture, as well as geography, even though in total, they add up to a bit less than 2% of the American population.

Be that as it may, the main reason for the higher than expected vote for Zero among American Jews is that too many don't value the importance of Israel anywhere near as much as they logically should.

Yes, that's been pretty much the pattern, especially in the last two presidential elections.

Even at the appellate level it would be well worth keeping an eye on!

Really doesn’t matter who the initial judge is if it’s heading up the road to higher court Sometimes the more errors the better for final decision
