IRS Commish Lets the Cat Out of the Bag. He said in Congressional hearings just moments ago:
"What happened here was... someone saw some Tea Party cases come through. They were acknowledging that they were going to be engaged in politics. This was the timeframe in 2010 when Citizens United was out. There was a lot of discussion in the system about the use of c4s. People in Cincinnati decided let's start grouping these cases. Let's centralize these cases."
I think he just admitted there that the culture fostered by the Obama administration had everything to do with this.
Think about that for a minute. Look at what he really said. When Tea Party applications began coming through the IRS, they were singled out BECAUSE this was shortly after the Supreme Cour ruled in 2010, in the Citizens United case, that corporations could donate to political campaigns - and discussion about that was "in the system" - fostered primarily by Obama's outrage over the case.
What do you think he meant by "in the system"? He has to be talking about the political system in which he is a high-level participant. And we know Obama was outraged by the Citizens United decision. And it's pretty apparent that that outrage flowed down to the IRS. I believe when he said, "in the system", he meant everyone at the highest levels of the IRS were determined to protect Obama from what they considered an unfair Supreme Court decision. They couldn't fight it in court - so they decided to fight it with the IRS. This has Obama's fingerprints all over it. Obama didn't even have to say a word to the IRS - for them to get the point.
Obama is "in the system" is he not? And he was the prime mover in promoting outrage against the Citizens United decision. And if you're the commissioner of the IRS, you want to keep your president happy.
This is the direct result of the culture Obama has promoted in Washington towards civil rights and the Constitution.
OBAMA was adamant that this Supreme Court decision not give an advantage to conservative groups. And the IRS knew that and was determined to protect their president - in order to further their own careers. That's what caused this massive abuse of power and civil rights violations.
WOW!!! THE SITE HAS REALLY GROWN!!! Gee, you take a few days off!
Ask yourself why the 1st amendment reads “Congress shall make no law” and not Congress must pass laws to protect…. The answer is simple even back then the congressional representatives who wrote the Constitution knew not to trust legislators.
Republicans Caved - $1 in "cuts" for $41 in tax increases. We must vote out all whom voted yes, every last one of them. Only those whom voted "no" deserve to be re-elected.
I finished reading a book by Francis Scheaffer recently that basically says the problem with Christianity today is that they are accommodating the world and other religions, I say that the problem with Conservatives and the Republican party is exactly the same, we are too willing to accommodate the liberals and moderates so we can all just get along. I don't want to get along, I want to do what is right.
