"Who is going to Jail." That is the question Speak John Boehner asked when the IRS scandal broke this week. But my question is "Who's going to be Impeached?" Below for an outstanding story by Jeffrey Lord of the American Spectator. It's his take on why the IRS targeted Tea Party, religious and Conservative groups, including Billy Graham because he urged voters to back candidates who had biblical principles. Here are samples of what you will find out:
It's about a Union, National Treasury Employees Union. 94% of NTEU contributions went to Democrats in 2012. The IRS employees who targeted the Tea Party are mostly NTEU members. NTEU is so powerful that it dictates which IRS employees get Blackberries and other high tech equipment. Yes, it tells OUR government which IRS employees are going to be blessed with the latest and greatest high tech junk. Starting to get the picture? It's called Raw Power of the NTEU within the IRS. And the NTEU was out to get Tea Party groups.
NTEU President Colleen Kelly, 14-year IRS agent, now NTEU president and Obama administration appointee to the Federal Salary Council. The FSC is an obscure panel that performs a vital role in recommending raises for most federal employees. Got it? The President of NTEU, a union that has gone out of its way to use IRS employee donations to destroy Tea Party and conservative groups, has a "vital role in recommending raises for federal employees." This, of course, includes IRS employees. Oh, what a conflict of interest we have.
Want more? Read the entire article by Mr. Lord. He refreshes our minds about why President Nixon was impeached. Yes, it had to do with illegal use of the IRS, an IRS scandal, if you will, which was a speck of sand compared to this week's revelations. During that investigation the House Judiciary Committee, when passing Articles of Impeachment, found that Nixon acted personally and through his subordinates and agents to gain confidential information from income tax returns for illegal purposes, that he violated the constitutional rights of citizens, and that Nixon or his subordinates caused tax audits or investigations in a discriminatory manner. The full story, which is an excellent, short history lesson, is in Lord's article.
Another tidbit that might interest all caring Americans: The Wall Street Journal reported that the IRS last year supplied a left-leaning nonprofit charity (ProPublica) with information about Conservative organizations. ProPublica disseminated this information to the public. They sure did, Folks. The IRS provided confidential and personal information about conservatives to a NON-PROFIT liberal propaganda mud-slinging group, in violation of federal law. I am a Conservative. What will prevent Big Brother Obama and his IRS from disclosing my personal information to Liberal groups? Nothing. My God, what a tangled web they weave.
TEA PARTY GROUPS SHUT DOWN OUT OF FEAR OF THE IRS. More to come, I'm sure.
Here are some words of comfort and peace for Americans who are anxious about Obamacare.
One IRS official linked to the "targeting" scandal now runs the IRS's Obamacare compliance office. That should scare the crap out of everyone. Now the IRS has requested funding to hire about 2,000 additional full time employees to enforce Obamacare. The IRS will be coming after all Americans once Obamacare is in place. This week it was discovered the IRS illegally accessed 60 million medical records of company CEOs, Hollywood Big Wigs and millions of regular Americans. And this happened BEFORE they hire the Obamacare Enforcement Gestapo to come after us. Are you a little concerned that once the IRS assumes police powers of Obamacare that the members of the left-wing NTEU will have access to the private health care records of every single American?
IRS ILLEGALLY ACCESSES 60 MILLION MEDICAL RECORDS
Who else is to blame for this further destruction of the credibility of Obama and his IRS? In March 2012 N.Y. Senator Chuck Schumer and Democrat Senators Baucus, Bennet, Whitehouse, Merkley, Udall, Shaheen and Franken penned a letter to the IRS calling on the agency to enact tighter restrictions and perform additional scrutiny of tea party and conservative groups. I wonder how these Democrat Senators are going to weasel their way out of this one? There letter is a matter of public record.
FLASHBACK: SCHUMER AND FRANK URGED IRS TO TARGET TEA PARTY
This week's disclosures about the IRS are the tip of a massive iceberg. There have been reports that companies who donated to Romney and Republicans were first audited by the IRS, then they were targeted by OSHA, EPA, and other federal regulatory offices. During the campaign Harry Reid disclosed confidential information about Romney's tax return. Wow, where did Harry get that info? Watch it fall, Folks. Obama and his administration are finally going to held accountable for their actions. And the buck stops at Obama's desk, no matter how much he says he didn't have any idea this was going on. And no matter how much he says "I will get to the bottom of this and hold the people accountable." Yeah, we've seen that before. Same old empty words.
TEN PAGES, YOU MUST READ IT ALL. SCARED OF THE IRS? YOU BET, HERE'S WHY
