IRS apologizes for targeting tea party groups
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Internal Revenue Service apologized Friday for what it acknowledged was ‘‘inappropriate’’ targeting of conservative political groups during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status.

IRS agents singled out dozens of organizations for additional reviews because they included the words ‘‘tea party’’ or ‘‘patriot’’ in their exemption applications, said Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups. In some cases, groups were asked for lists of donors, which violates IRS policy in most cases, she said.

‘‘That was absolutely incorrect, it was insensitive and it was inappropriate. That’s not how we go about selecting cases for further review,’’ Lerner said at a conference sponsored by the American Bar Association.

‘‘The IRS would like to apologize for that,’’ she added.

Lerner said the practice was initiated by low-level workers in Cincinnati and was not motivated by political bias.

Not only is it obviously political bias, but I would be willing to wager someone in a position of great authority in the government instructed the IRS to do it.The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

It go's probably deeper in all branches: Look at just the turnover - Even the press spokes people " Jay Carney " he's at least the 3rd.

Some food for thought: This type of behavior is also in the Watergate articles of impeachment as Nixon utilized the IRS to go after his political enemies. Not that Obama has been directly tied to it but that's how serious it is. At least be comforted by the fact that the IRS will also be the enforcer of Obamacare.

Ways and Means to IRS: ‘Provide All Communications Containing Words ‘Tea Party,’ ‘Patriot,’ or ‘Cons
May 10, 2013

(CNSNews.com) - The House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Oversight has thrown down an investigative gauntlet to the Internal Revenue Service, demanding that the agency hand over by next Wednesday every communication in its records that includes the words “tea party,” “patriot” or “conservative.”

The committee is also demanding of the IRS that by next Wednesday it provide the committee with the names and titles of all individuals who were involved in targeting conservative non-profit groups for more intensive review of their applications for non-profit status.

I am afraid thats not going to happen.

A few underlings might be sacrificed.

Politicians on both sides will hold hearings. They will bloviate their bullsh#t and then move on.

Thats about it folks.

How ever it boils out or is sifted :
It's a direct stinking criminal or treasonous attack on the Constitution !

Just the sorting of civilian demographics for political advantage or defeat is one thing --- -and to play it for a election --- bias

But it IS VERY SERIOUS - as it crosses the bond or trust between the citizen and that of the government - THEY ARE CONTROLLING the Citizen not the Citizen controlling the Government.

The Constitution is written EXCLUSIVELY to protect it - and the Citizen from NOT using the TAX Tool as a influence or to segregate !

Most have NO idea what crime has been committed. To BUST the Constitution.

You can fight a war without weapon's - It's the Play that is being applied.

We are only seeing the leak's - Hear about Minot ?? AFB ??

Actually it's now gone past Political party affiliation.

Democrats have lost control of a 1 term Jr. Freshman Senator Frankenstein that was manufactured.

Even the Blue Dog Old School Democrats are gathering to try to stop the mess - Cross party unification.

Why all the OFF NEW's Cycle activity is flying.

Lot of OH CRap : Archie Bunker stuff :

They { Both don't have a Exit --- }

SOme one is going to lay it down and blow the cover off

Bigger than most can even Fathom : IRS IS NOt That Smart

Going to be WILD : !!!!

They did it under a Directive from the TOP down. Some one in OBAMA"s INNER Circle used the IRS - AMERICAN TAXPAYER as a TOOL to Undermine the CONSTITUTION. Maybe Obama's top Lieutenants - The King's Guard

This whole thing - is woven and knotted together in a big stinkin BALL.

All The BLUNDERS - Year's of them. Look at the trail -------

Just the Big one's like Fast and Furious to the present stuff

Going to be Justice dept -Supenas - and potential Criminal charges and depositions flying - like dust - till they track it all too the origin : Maybe PAST OBAMA !!! Once they get the trail.

Plenty of Dumb Citizen's just as plenty DUmb political leader's also.

Some body stuck a spade into the ROOT of Tree of REASON = TREASON

Gona dig it all out, before they get done with criminal prosecution.

GET ON BOARD THE TRAIN !!!!!

THE WHISTLE BLOWER !!!!!
