IRS Workers Say Supervisors Directed Targeting

washington(dot)cbslocal(dot)com/2013/06/07/irs-workers-say-supervisors-directed-targeting/

Two Internal Revenue Service agents working in the agency’s Cincinnati office say higher-ups in Washington directed the targeting of conservative political groups when they applied for tax-exempt status, a contention that directly contradicts claims made by the agency since the scandal erupted last month.

core, I remember you used to be strongly against the Patriot Act under Bush. Now that Obama is taking it way beyond anything Bush did, you are strangely silent.Can you explain why?

Obama just launched a program to spy on millions of Americans. What are your thoughts?

The liberal New York Times has stated that this adninistration has "Lost All Credibility".

Some here are a lot slower at putting it together.

Trooftella, it is kind of funny how you managed to jump right in to a conversation that started long before you got here.

Homesick Snowbird? I was in Scottsdale, Arizona the other day and I saw a bumper sticker on a parked car that read: "I miss Chicago." So, I broke the window, stole the radio, shot out two of the tires, added an Obama bumper sticker and left a note that read, "I hope this helps!"

Under Jimmy Carter the liberal court ruled it was phone data such as who you called and who called you on what dates and what times. was public information. This is when Caller ID was just introduced and there was some concern that that was a privacy issue. Getting phone info is done on a regular basis by law enforcement. They need a warrant to listen to your conversations. I do not know what meta data is or anything about it. You can bet obummer is doing it all wrong and in some shady way. He should be impeached.

Today's headlines: Obama's NSA collecting phone records of millions daily... Secret court order requires VERIZON to hand over 'telephony metadata'... WH defends, says 'critical tool' against terrorist threats... Specifically targeted Americans, not foreigners... DHS: Laptops, phones can be searched based on hunches... FBI 'WANTS BACK DOOR TO ALL SOFTWARE'... NO PAIN: $332 Million In Federal Worker Bonuses Last Year... Payroll to Population Drops to 43.9%... Holder misses deadline to clear up testimony on reporter surveillance... Agency Staff Blame Washington for Targeting Conservatives... Liberal groups say they don't see targeting their tax applications...

Yet, no outrage from the left.

core, feel free to tell us that all this is lies, too.

You made the claims, your job to support them. with reliable sources, of course.

Start with this one:

"In fact, the Bush admin was much worse "

Show us where Bush himself denied tax exempt status to dozens of liberal groups. Provide a list of rediculous questions they were required to answer that were not asked of conservative groups.

How about Holder admitting he screwed up?

Although the NAACP issue appears to be politically motivated, they were not denied status, nor was their status changed by the standard audit. In the current IRS scandal it appears the White House not only was involved, but hid their efforts that affected an.election. DOZENS of conservative groups were targetted, they were subject to personal and non-IRS questions, and designed and resulted in denial of tax exempt status of dozens of conservative groups.

cont. ----- Eastman said “forensic” specialists within his organization had stripped layers from the document posted on the HRC website to identify “meta-data,” or unseen embedded code, that identified the document as having originated from within the IRS.

Eastman testified the “internal IRS stamps” in the meta-data of the NOM donor list provide “proof” the document originated from within the IRS and was leaked to HRC to embarrass and “chill” NOM donors opposed to same-sex marriage

WND------ "WASHINGTON — A witness at a congressional hearing today on IRS targeting of conservative organizations claims he has proof the agency illegally leaked confidential information.

“I would call the disclosure of our donor lists by the IRS a felony,” charged John Eastman, chairman of the National Organization for Marriage, or NOM, in Washington, D.C., in emotionally charged testimony Tuesday before the House Ways and Means Committee .

Eastman testified that the organization’s IRS Form 990 tax return, which lists its donors, was published on the website of the Human Rights Campaign, a “gay-rights” advocacy group.

He claimed to have proof the IRS leaked his organization’s confidential donor list under questioning by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis.

So much for transparency.

Obama appointees have secret e-mail addresses. The administration wants 1.3 million dollars to give those addresses to the AP under FOIA.

I see that all posts that are not on topic have been removed. Thank You. Obummer went to bed the night of Sept 11th and told them to do what they thought was right so he could be fresh for his vacation and golf in Vegas the next day.

No, I did not say that black folks are racist and will destroy the country. You said that. I'm just saying what I know to be true. Black people will take it as whites do not want a black president, like it is an attack on their race. This will be spurred on by people like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and organizations like the NAACP and SPLC. It has nothing to do with skin color and everything to do with the Constitution and breaking laws and destroying the America we love. If you ask most conservatives, they liked Herman Cain. They'd vote for someone like Alan Keyes. It is the dems that are the true racists. Why? Once racism dies, they are jobless and have nothing to run on, or people to exploit for votes.

Bill Clinton “I’ve heard more from Bush, asking for my advice, than I’ve heard from Obama,” my sources quoted Clinton as saying. “I have no relationship with the president — none whatsoever. Obama doesn’t know how to be president. He doesn’t know how the world works. He’s incompetent. He’s an amateur!”

See fellow posters, this is how you know you are winning an argument against a liberal, they call you a "racist," and add other insults in there as well.

Obama won't be impeached. It would be like the LA riots only nationwide in every city. Even if it needs to happen, it never will, because the result would be disaster, perhaps even a racial/civil war.

Core, admit it, the Obama admin. just might be the most corrupt in the history of the country. Using the IRS to suppress your political opposition is criminal. Also selling guns to people that should not have them. And before I forget, letting our ambassador and his staff to be sodomized and murdered by a bunch of terrorists just so it does not hurt the re-election campaign. Oh, and I almost forgot Solyndra where Obama's buddies stole taxpayer money as repayment for their support in 2008.
