    IRS Auditing Scandal



    This one is really starting to heat up.

    Just watched the WH presser and Carney was dumbfounded. He had no answer for the IRS's actions. None.

    Now there's reports that the IRS may have targeted Jewish groups as well.

    I cannot recall a time when a sitting President was embroiled by three scandals at once, any one of which would be huge news.

    Just watched a replay of the WH presser ....

    So the DoJ, itself under investigation for illegally gathering the phone records of reporters phones at the AP, will now investigate the IRS for illegally targeting / auditing groups critical of the President?

    Wasn't this the plot line of a bad 90's political thriller?

    I'm sure Obama will find some unique way to spin this.

    Re: IRS Auditing Scandal

    LOL Sir,

    Good one. I just told a libbie that OBY is the worse prez since Carter but OBY isn't the first
    prez to sick IRS on people.

    Nixon was furious when JFK got IRS to audit his mother in a nursing home, no less. JFK
    was pissed that when Nixon briefed him on his activities as VP on the way out he didn't
    mention Track 2.

    That was the code name to kill Castro after IKE gave the order and appointed Nixon
    to coordinate it. He used the same basement room in the WH that Oliver North used
    to run the Contras-lol.

    Nixon worked with the CIA to hired Mafia hitmen to kill Castro but there was even a
    precedent for this when FDR got the gov't to get Lucky LUciano who had been deported
    to Sicily to get info on German gun emplacements for the allied landing on Anzio which
    still was a major goat fuck in terms of casualties.

    So Nixon worked with the mob to kill Castro but the operation wasn't carried out til he
    left office. He didn't tell JFK because he knew he'd get the blame and all the embarrassment which is exactly what happened when they missed.

    JFK was furious and got IRS to audit his dying mother. What a muther fucker and we thought Tricky Dick was bad but no fear because at the time Nixon worked for the best
    law firm in the country with Mitchell who became his atty general and remember his wife
    during Watergate who had to be shut up-lol. Anyway they had the best lawyers to kick IRS in the ass but man, he hated Kennedy. In fact, some think he might have had something to do with killing Kennedy because he was in Dallas just before the assassination but he
    was there talking to Pepsi Cola as their lead atty in a civil suit but H Bush was also in
    Dallas at the time.

    They he did the same or threatened the John Birchers who financed his campaign and
    threatened to pull out for lining up with the liberal Kissenger who was anything but
    conservative.

    This is just another embarrassment for OBY but he'll come out smelling like a rose.
    He always does just like Clinton who was impeached but not removed, unlike, um
    Tricky Dick.

    IRS is even covering up saying the Wh had nothing to do with it. It's the responsibility of
    low level employees and they even apologized.

    ILMAO

    Obama regarding the IRS scandal:

    "I first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people learned about this. I think it was on Friday.”

    Seriously? What a stupid thing to blatantly lie about. And at a time when his administration's credibility is seriously lacking. Man up Obama, that is what being the President is all about.

    What's funny is, I'm almost positive he gave the exact same response when asked about Benghazi at the time as well.

    Re: IRS Auditing Scandal

    It just keeps getting worse ....

    Now it's being reports the IRS game liberal groups a pass with words like "Progressive" and "Peace" in their names, while conservative groups faced extra scrutiny.

    I've gone from anger to sad at this point.

    WTF is so broken with the country that people are purposely targeted based on political ideology?!?!?!

    How much of a sick, twisted fuck do you have to be to do this?

    It really is just sad that these are the lengths we're willing to go to squash opposing ideologies.

    Remind me again why the idea that states should be allowed to succeed is ridiculous?

    These are the lengths that our federal government is willing to go to to force this nation -because that's exactly what it is, force- to stay under one federal authority.

    I'm not IRS, nor an accountant, nor a fed, but I've worked with the senior managers out in Cincinnati not too long ago.

    Sr. Exec Lois Lerner who works in DC runs the Cincy group, but no one should believe that some grand DC conspiracy with traceable roots to the WH is at play here. These people just aren't that smart or crafty. Lerner is awful and is liked and respected by barely a few. And no matter how dumb the WH may be, it isn't quite dumb enough to use Lerner and the Cincy office to do their dirty work.

    I think what we have here is a handful of unbridled ideologues operating in a vacuum without proper oversight or management controls.

    If I run a business, and someone down the chain of command committed an awful felony in conjunction with their work, I may not be directly involved, but you bet your ass people are going to be looking at me for answers as to why things got so messed.

    So yes, there's no evidence (yet) to suggest directives *came* from the WH.

    But .... if the WH knew it was going on and did nothing, omission is just as bad as commission. There's a report out on the right leaning news sites that info obtained by the IRS's Cincy office may have been used against Romney during the campaign.

    If that proves to be true, that puts the scandal in the WH as well as in Cincy.

    I understand your point about the CoC and certainly the TE division commish as well as the IRS the commish should (continue to) be grilled... but the beating up the Chief of Naval Ops over a discovered drug ring among Nimitz sailors is not the proper course of action WRT to any fed investigation. Let the media monkeys bang that drum. I'm fine with that. It's what that do.
