‘Rogue’ IRS Agent Tax-Exempt Organization Specialist Stephen Seok Who Wrote Threatening Letters to Tea Party Groups gets promotion to “supervisor IRS agent”
Didn’t President Barack Obama promise to hold accountable those at the Internal Revenue Service involved in the targeting of conservative groups? Guess not.
From the Washington Examiner, one time Tax-Exempt Organization Specialist Stephen Seok who signed many of the intimidating letters sent to conservative nonprofits has now been promoted to “supervisor IRS agent.” What a joke. The Cincinnati IRS office had no comment and referred all inquiries to the Washington office. These so-called “rouge” agents are not being punished, in fact, they appear to be rewarded for their actions. If Obama was sincere at all, heads would have been rolling left and right at the IRS. Sorry, but his feigned outrage is nothing more than insincere lip service.
Hmm, I thought Obama said the actions of the IRS were inexcusable and he would not tolerate it? Tolerate it? It was Rewarded, who is he kidding?
President Obama may have promised “to hold the responsible parties accountable” for the Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative non-profit groups, but one of the agents at the center of the scandal was recently promoted, an IRS source tells The Washington Examiner.
Through 2012, then-Exempt Organization Specialist Stephen Seok signed many of the intimidating letters sent to conservative nonprofits. For example, this January 2012 letter sent to the Richmond Tea Party demanded the date, time and location of all group events, as well as copies of all handouts provided at the events, and the names and credentials of all organizers. Seok also demanded the names of all speakers and the contents of the speeches they made.
According to WXIX-TV/Fox 19 in Cincinnati, Seok is no longer an exempt organization specialist. He has since been promoted to “supervisor IRS agent.”

Arizona Mom Free … Yanira Maldonado Out of Mexico Prison on Trumped Up Drug Charges, Judge Dismisses Case
Yanira Maldonado is free …
After being questionably detained by Mexican authorities since May 22, 2013, Yanira Maldonado has been freed from a Mexican prison. Maldonado, the mother of seven, was arrested on suspicion of drug smuggling. However, since the inception of this nightmare she pleaded that she was innocent. Mexican police found 12 pounds of pot taped under the seat on the bus that Yanira Maldonado and her husband were on returning to the United States from a funeral. Yanira Maldonado was born in Mexico but is a naturalized U.S. citizen. From the outset the question has always been, how could they have brought the pot onto the bus and taped it under a seat without anyone seeing it? Corrupt Mexican police have been known to target and frame individuals, especially Americans, in an attempt to shake down people for money. In this case, they never dreamed that this case would get the media attention. This forced the Mexican officials hand, as if this continued, there was talks of starting a boycott of Mexican tourism. With pressure mounting, Maldonado release came hours after court officials reviewed security footage, that showed the couple boarding a commercial bus traveling from Mexico to Phoenix with only blankets, bottles of water and her purse in hand.
VIDEO – ABC News: FREED!!! Maldonado thanks God and everyone who supported her during this ordeal.
Yanira Maldonado, 42, walked out of the jail late Thursday night local time, and thanked well-wishers and Mexican officials. Maldonado told one jail official in Spanish, “Thank you for everything and the quality of person you are.”
“Is this it?” Maldonado asked officials moments after being released. “Thank you. God bless you,” she added before leaving.
Maldonado met with reporters briefly and said, “Many thanks to everyone, especially my God who let me go free, my family, my children, who with their help, I was able to survive this test,” she said
Yanira Maldonado, the Arizona mother held for more than a week in a Mexico jail on suspicion of drug smuggling, was released late Thursday after the case against her was dismissed.
The mother-of-seven, from Goodyear, Arizona, would return immediately to the United States, her lawyer Jose Francisco Benitez Paz said.
“Many thanks to everyone, especially my God who let me go free, my family, my children, who with their help, I was able to survive this test,” she told reporters.
Maldonado, 42, had been detained since May 22, when she and her husband were returning to the U.S. from a funeral. Soldiers said they had found 12 pounds of marijuana taped under her seat on a bus.
Just amazing. We have illegal immigrants coming into the United States from Mexico, breaking our laws, yet we have innocent Americans just trying to get home from Mexico and arrested illegally. Welcome to the upside down world we live in.
Former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman Visited the White House at least 157 Times during the Obama Administration … More Visits Than any Cabinet Member
I guess former IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman was at the White House more than just for the Easter Egg roll.
Some one has some explaining to do to Congress under oath. As reported by the Daily Caller, former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman visited the White House at least 157 times during the Obama administration. More than any other of Obama’s other trusted adviser or cabinet member. Looks like someone has frequent flier miles at the White House. How could that be? Last week before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Shulman stated that he had visited the White House 118 times during the period of time that the IRS was targeting conservative groups and the Tea Party. Looks like he missed the amount of times in the White House by that much. Interestingly enough, By contrast, Shulman’s predecessor Mark Everson only visited the White House once during four years of service in the George W. Bush administration. Imagine that. But of course its just a coincidence that Schulman was there that oftern and never said a word to the White House about the targeting of the Tea Party. PLEASE! 157 times! As Weasel Zippers opines, It’s almost like the White House and IRS were in cahoots. This is unreal. But we are not supposed to connect the dots and see the obvious. How dare we implicate the White House in the IRS scandal. Sorry, the Obama White House has lost getting the benefit of the doubt anymore.
Shulman’s extensive access to the White House first came to light during his testimony last week before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Shulman gave assorted answers when asked why he had visited the White House 118 times during the period that the IRS was targeting tea party and conservative nonprofits for extra scrutiny and delays on their tax-exempt applications.
By contrast, Shulman’s predecessor Mark Everson only visited the White House once during four years of service in the George W. Bush administration and compared the IRS’s remoteness from the president to “Siberia.” But the scope of Shulman’s White House visits — which strongly suggests coordination by White House officials in the campaign against the president’s political opponents — is even more striking in comparison to the publicly recorded access of Cabinet members.

Students at the University of Colorado – Boulder Sign “Thank You” Card to IRS for Targeting Conservative and Tea Party Groups
What happened to my country?
It is actually frightening that the following occurred in the United States and on a college campus to boot. Individuals actually signed a “Thank You” card to the IRS, thanking them fare targeting, harassing and slow walking the non-profit applications of Conservative and Tea Party groups. This was the brain child of Conservative pundit Caleb Bonham who said, “I was kind of hoping people would look at my card and laugh, but not endorse it.” “That was not the case.” One student said while signing the card, “I love discrimination.” WTF!!! Seriously, would this individuals
like love discrimination if they were the ones targeted? Oh, that would be different of course. And who in the hell loves discrimination of any kind? So let’s get this straight, those who signed and agreed with this thank you card agree that Big Government should have the power to destroy anyone who does not agree with them? Is that what this ignoramuses actually think? Of course not because they think they should be afforded a double standard. Maybe the next question should have been if they had ever heard of the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights?
Students at the University of Colorado – Boulder (UCB) signed an enormous thank you card to the Internal Revenue Service for its apparent harassment of conservative groups during the lead-up to President Obama’s reelection.
In the viral video, posted on YouTube Tuesday, conservative pundit Caleb Bonham asked students to sign the large card that read “Thank you IRS! Tea Party Deserves it!”
“I’m asking people if they want to sign my board thanking the IRS for targeting conservative tea party and religious organizations,” Bonham explained in the video.
Sadly, this is a result of the brainwashing that today’s youth has received and a completely hateful attitude and disrespect of others. Some how they are to be afforded the rights of “Freedom of Speech” but others are not. BTW, for all those who signed the ‘Thank You” card to the IRS … thanks for your names so that when the GOP is back in power, they can have the IRS target you. According to you, its perfectly AOK.
BTW II: How are those job prospects for all of you so-intelligent college grads these days?
President Barack Obama Sounding an Awful Lot Like Richard Nixon (VIDEO) … ” I First Learned of it from News Reports”.
Hmm, President Barack Hussein Obama is sounding an awful lot like Richard Milhous Nixon these days. The video below by Reveal Politics has side by side Obama – Nixon sound bytes and it sounds like they are separated at birth. Even CBS’s Bob Sheiffer of ‘Face the Nation’ stated to White House advisor Dan Pffeiffer, this is exactly the approach that Nixon took during Watergate. Nixon had Watergate, but Barack Obama is juggling three scandals, or is it four, at the same time and doesn’t have an answer for any of them. For those that refuse to compare Obama’s scandals to Watergate, what’s the difference? Both attacked political opposition, both used the IRS to intimidate, harass, and affect political outcomes. Both used the powers of the government against their political enemies, heck and even friends in the MSM. Oh, there was one difference … no one was left behind in Benghazi to die as they begged for help.
Remember how Democrats reacted when Nixon was caught in one scandal? But of course there is a double standard for Obama. Sorry, one scandal might be explainable. Two, makes one start to raise their eye brow. Three, is a very troubling trend and four, we begin to use the “I” word. The LEFT is losing their collective minds that their Obamamessiah, the president of ‘Hope and Change’ is nothing more than Richard Nixon with a “D”.
Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee switches Party Affiliation Again, This Time from Independent to Democrat
Changing party affiliation like one changes their underwear … Chafee is a Republican, no Independent, no Democrat … no just a desperate politician.
Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee is changing party affiliation once again and switching from an independent to the Democrat Party. So Chafee has gone from a Republican to Independent to Democrat. He was never a Republican, Chafee like so many individuals in politics are nothing more than political opportunists who would do, say and change parties to maintain power. But from the Rhode Island Governor who has a job approval rating in the 20′s and who ended Christmas trees, this man will do anything to cling on to power. It’s one thing to change, if your party left you, or one has a true change of political philosophy, it’s quite another to do it for political expedience. This is exactly what is wrong with politics today. There are no statesman, just hangers on who think its their right to hold office. Hopefully, the good people of Rhode Island will toss this disaster out on his can.
Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee will formally switch his party registration Thursday, abandoning his status as an independent and joining the Democratic Party, the governor’s office told POLITICO.
Chafee quietly informed President Barack Obama of his intention to affiliate as a Democrat after reaching that decision in private, Chafee spokeswoman Christine Hunsinger said. The governor’s office confirmed Chafee’s plans after POLITICO reported that the governor had notified national Democrats that he’d be joining the party.
A former Republican who served with Obama in the Senate, Chafee has struggled with perilously low job approval ratings and faces a difficult reelection fight in 2014
- Wonder no more! He will be hosting a new political show on the Russian TV station RT!

Welcome to the Real War on Women … Saudi Writer Abdullah Mohammad Al Dawood Says Working Women Should be Molested
Hmm, a religion of peace, eh? What about a religion that respects women?
TAKE A GOOD LOOK AMERICA TO WHAT A REAL WAR ON WOMEN LOOKS LIKE, COURTESY OF ISLAM.
The next time that Democrats falsely accuse the GOP of a war on woman, you might just want to get a reality check and see what a real’ “WAR ON WOMEN” looks like. Abu Dhabi, a Saudi writer has urged his Twitter followers to sexually molest women hired to work as cashiers in big grocery stores. HUH? You can’t make this stuff up folks. This is how stuck in the stone ages these folks are. The story goes on to say that, Khalid Ebrahim Al Saqabi, a conservative cleric, endorsed Al Dawood’s calls and said a law proposed by the government against sexual harassment in newly mixed workplaces was “only meant to encourage consensual debauchery”. YIKES, if they advance the idea that working women should be molested, what do you think they want to happen to women that were the top wage earners of their household?
Abu Dhabi: A Saudi writer has urged his Twitter followers to sexually molest women hired to work as cashiers in big grocery stores, the latest backlash from conservatives who want to roll back limited social and economic reforms launched in Saudi Arabia.
Abdullah Mohammad Al Dawood, who writes self-help books including one called The Joy of Talking, has stirred fierce debate this week via the internet microblogging service with the use of the hashtag harass_female_cashiers, to press for Saudi women to be forced to stay at home to protect their chastity.
His campaign against official moves to encourage women to work in mixed gender environments has led some Twitter users to denounce him. Others however applauded him as a fighter against government efforts to westernise and corrupt the country.
More from Atlas Shrugs, “Note, yet again, calling these religious misogynists “conservatives.” More media defamation. They are not “conservative.” These Muslims are devout.” So the next time that you are being told that Christianity and Islam is the same, you might want to educate yourself.
