SHAMEFUL … Now the IRS Targets Our Nation’s Veterans



As if the IRS did not have enough scandals to worry about, they now have a new one. The IRS is now targeting our nation’s veterans and the American Legion.  What is wrong with this organization? It is obvious that the IRS is not a bunch of rogue agents, but a “rouge” government agency that does as it pleases without concern. It is time that we put and end to the IRS and develop a flat tax. Seriously, what is the difference these days between the IRS and the mob or terrorist? They operate on the premise of fear and intimidation and feel they answer to now one. Take a good look what tyranny looks like.

American Legion

If the president wants to get angry about something, how about getting mad about the IRS leaping on the American Legion, requiring individual Legion posts to provide proof of their members’ eligibility, virtually accusing the veterans organization of being a cover for and sanctioning tax fraud?

As the Daily Caller has learned, this targeting of the American Legion is happening under a 13-part section of Part 4, Chapter 76 of the Internal Revenue Manual pertaining to “veterans’ organizations.” The section falls under “Exempt Organizations Examination Guidelines,” which was the jurisdiction of Exempt Organizations head Lerner.

“The American Legion has recently learned of the so-called IRS ‘audit manual’ and is concerned that portions of it attempt to amend statutes passed by Congress and approved by the president,” American Legion legal counsel Philip Onderdonk Jr. told The Daily Caller.

“The IRS now requires American Legion posts to maintain dates of service and character of service records for all members. …The penalty for not having the required proof of eligibility is, apparently, $1,000 per day,” the American Legion stated.

As if targeting conservative and Tea Party groups was not bad enough to ensure that Barack Obama would be reelected in 2012, lets go after the vets too. UNREAL.

      Investigative reporters need to continue the quest for just how many groups have been targeted and seek to find the person or persons directing this overreach of government.

      We already have information that the IRS is training SWAT teams at the FBI facility in Virginia. This rogue agency will next become the LE, judge, jury and executioner of those that they target. This is pure overreach and are acts against the people and the Constitution.
