IRS Audits Another Obama "Enemy" Breitbart News
Investor's Business Daily ^ | September 11, 2024 | IBD EDITORIALS

Posted on 09/11/2014 10:51:57 AM PDT by raptor22

IRS: As the 2014 midterms approach, what has become a political arm of the Obama administration has targeted — as it targeted the Tea Party — a leading conservative truth-teller that has exposed so many of its lies.

Even as the IRS races to cover up a prior abuse of power, it ruthlessly engages in another, using its power to tax in an attempt to destroy the vast truth-gathering enterprise launched by the late Andrew Breitbart, which the administration apparently ranks right alongside the Tea Party atop its enemies list.

Last Friday, the IRS stretched credulity beyond the breaking point with the announcement that five more staffers linked to the Tea-Party targeting that Breitbart News labored mightily to expose had — wait for it — hard-drive crashes that caused emails to be lost.

These staffers include Judith Kindell, who was a senior adviser to Lois Lerner, former head of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt groups who pleaded the Fifth in congressional testimony.

In a February 2011 email, The Hill reports, Lerner insisted that Kindell be in the loop on Tea Party cases, saying they were "very dangerous."

Another experiencing the hard drive crash epidemic was Nikole Flax, who was chief of staff to interim IRS chief Steven Miller, who was forced out as the Tea Party scandal broke. Both the targeting and the cover-up were fully covered by Breitbart News, which frequently exposed Obama administration lies.

the decision to audit Breitbart News Network, LLC appears highly questionable."

No, "predictable" would be the better word.

It'll be nice watching this scumbag and his vile brood sow finally departing our White House. What a tragically gone-wrong experiment.

Never again...

You know as well as I do that if a Republican is elected to the presidency next he’ll do absolutely zero to clean out this infestation.

Heard about this a few days ago. Criminal thugs are running our government. I have no doubt whatsoever of this.
We are beginning to be a nation gone under.
I am rapidly losing what little faith I had in republiCANTS to turn things around as well.

I got the full anal audit for my 2010 tax year.

The guy was ok. But talk about no sense of humor.

Came out it it pretty clean. But I would not wish it on anyone.

Well why not? It's not like anybody is doing anything to them. How long has this been going on? Anybody indicted? But Rick Perry gets indicted for trying to fire a vicious drunk

It is abuse of power beyond anything I've ever seen. So blatant, in your face, and continues right now as we speak. The democrat party is at war with the rest of us. Combined with the open boarders and the shipping of people directly into counties where they need minority voters, it's clear they intend to win. Our side stays within the rules and laws. Jeff Sessions speaks out on the immigration scheme and gets some coverage Cruz speaks out as well but neither has lit the fire yet. We have some Republicans coming out hard on the IRS, but it doesn't seem to concern Holder at all. To stop this law breaking, it's going to have to be taken to another level, and soon. Someone has to put together an action plan.

What's sauce for the Tea Party is sauce for Breitbart and Dinesh D'Souza, and here, have some more sauce, and then some more, until you learn to love Big Brother.

And Dinesh D'Souza, for a couple of books and a movie.

And they want to put Cathy Engelbrecht of Houston's King Street Patriots in jail, too -- at the instigation of local 'Rats who weren't used to having poll watchers screw up their overvoting parties on Election Day.

This administration sold guns to Mexican drug cartels knowing people would die as a result, simply so they could use the resulting deaths to push the “90% of Mexico’s guns come from the US” lie ...

An administration willing to facilitate the deaths of people to push a lie for political purposes thinks nothing of using the IRS to harass political enemies.

This country, although it may occupy the same physical space as the United States we remember, is NOT the United States any longer: We are a corrupt, 18 trillion dollar in debt leviathan government rampaging on the rights of citizens, driven by unionized federal workers who apparently take great joy in giving the citizens of this country a big FU on a daily basis.

Ditto

ADD THE HERO OF BENGHAZI AND THE DEFENDER looked into the eyes of the families when the bodies came back and lied about the cause and what they would do.

One of the most despicable things ever.
