IRS TARGETS CONSERVATIVE GROUPS.....

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Internal Revenue Service inappropriately flagged conservative political groups for additional reviews during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status, a top IRS official said Friday.
Organizations were singled out because they included the words "tea party" or "patriot" in their applications for tax-exempt status, said Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups.

Now maybe even you low information liberal Obama voters will know why it has been said that Obama makes President Richard Milhous Nixon look like a choir boy.

I guess the question is - did Obama know about it? If he didn't - it really is hard to compare him to Nixon. If he did - good comment. I am a high information Obama voter and will wait until all the information is presented. Sounds like you are assuming guilty until proven innocent.

For Holder to recuse himself, would't he have had to know who or where the leak was coming from? Wouldn't the target have to be himself, or a relative, or a boss, or someone in his or his boss's circle? Is it Rahm Emanuel?

More scandals that'll be swept under the rug. We'll be on to other topics and news within a couple of weeks. No way hussein obummer gets impeached. This may even be a distraction as the ecomomy falls further and further into irreversable oblivion.

HM- Obama set the mood for the IRS to act. Go back and read some of Obama's comments about the Tea Party and compare them to his comments about OWS.

Obama has never been the President of the United States. He has only been the President of the Left and the Democrat Party. He is on a constant political campaign instead of acting as the President of the United States.

We, and maybe even you, are witnessing the down and dirty Chicago political way of life from a community agitator and no more.

Sounds like I am assuming guilt? Damn right. The IRS has already admitted it. There has a been legal cases brought against the IRS for the past couple of years alleging just that. Obama knew about it. If you want to say he too is a low information President... go ahead.

Mark levin and Glen Beck have been saying this about the IRS and you low information people would not listen.

Sarkazein said...

HM- The IRS is also who Obama and fellow Leftists decided would ENFORCE your heath care.

Sarkazein said...

HM- The IRS helped your candidate win re-election. They released tax info to be used against Romney.
Yeah, Obama didn't know about it... the low information President voted in by low information voters.

Sarkazein said...

Obama didn't know Benghazi was a terrorist attack, didn't know about IRS, didn't know about AP even though Holder said it is the biggest leak investigation in his career...

The low information President.

Sarkazein said...

Maybe David Assholrod will join the Tea Party now. He says the government is too vast to be controlled. Duh.

Sarkazein said...

HM- Fast & Furious.. didn't know about it.

Travon... knew about it

Professor ... knew about it.

The Examiner-Lois Lerner, the senior executive in charge of the IRS tax exemption department and the federal employee at the center of the exploding scandal over the IRS targeting of conservative, evangelical and pro-Israel non-profits, was given $42,531 in bonuses between 2009 and 2011.

That figure was included in data provided by the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by The Washington Examiner. Lerner is director of the IRS exempt organizations division, which processes and approves or denies applications from groups seeking tax-exempt status.

Lerner received $17,220 for 2010, $14,691 for 2011 and $10,620 for 2012, the most recent year for which the IRS said data was available.

Her annual salary in 2009 and 2010 was $172,200, and $177,000 in 2011 and 2012. With the bonuses, Lerner was paid a total of $740,931 for the four-year period.///

My money used to defeat me.

You know Obama's in trouble when Jon Stewart is attacking him. I'm not normally a Jon Stewart fan, but since a lot of young liberals consider his program "news," this is telling.


This first video is on Obama learning about scandals from "news reports" -- how often will the same line be swallowed by HM and other Obama apologists? PLEASE, open your eyes and see what we, and now, even Stewart, can see.

GREAT clips, Sark...the second one in particular!

I don't like a lot of what Stewart does....at least when he is attacking "my" side! But, he IS very good at it - probably the best satirist out there!

It's easier to appreciate him when he is after liberals though!

Sarkazein said...

NewGuy- Yes they were great clips. I am not a Jon Stewart fan either. He is one of the reasons some people don't take what is going on seriously. His fans think they got the news- as much as they need- and they don't. Thanks Nobody.

We are finding out now, just how important the news is as we learn Obama finds out what's going on in his own administration from the news. His staff must not be invited to the WH celebrity worshippings or to the golf outings... so little time to brief.
