JUDICIAL WATCH SAYS THAT THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE USED ORGANIZATIONS OWN DONOR LISTS TO TARGET AUDITS …
Sorry, but the IRS needs to be disbanded and a new way of taxation needs to be devised. Never again should any US citizen ever be the target of such viscous tyranny. Juridical Watch is saying that the IRS used donor lists to target unwarranted audits of those opposed to Barack Obama and his policies. Imagine that. The Founding Fathers never intended for any such government agency to ever have this kind f power and fear over its citizens. We fought a Revolutionary War to rid ourselves from tyranny.
“These documents that we had to force out of the IRS prove that the agency used donor lists to audit supporters of organizations engaged in First Amendment-protected lawful political speech,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fittonsaid .
Government watchdog group Judicial Watch has obtained documents that show the Internal Revenue Service used donor lists from conservative tax-exempt organizations to determine who it would target for audits.
The IRS produced the documents in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the group.
“These documents that we had to force out of the IRS prove that the agency used donor lists to audit supporters of organizations engaged in First Amendment-protected lawful political speech,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.
A letter dated September 28, 2010, then-Democrat Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) informs then-IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman: “ I request that you and your agency survey major 501(c)(4), (c)(5) and (c)(6) organizations …” In reply, in a letter dated February 17, 2011, Shulman writes: “In the work plan of the Exempt Organizations Division, we announced that beginning in FY2011, we are increasing our focus on section 501(c)(4), (5) and (6) organizations.”
In 2010, after receiving Baucus’s letter, the IRS considered the issue of auditing donors to 501(c)(4) organizations, alleging that a 35 percent gift tax would be due on donations in excess of $13,000. The documents show that the IRS wanted to cross-check donor lists from 501(c)(4) organizations against gift tax filings and commence audits against taxpayers based on this information.
A gift tax on contributions to 501(c)(4)’s was considered by most to be a dead letter since the IRS had never enforced the rule after the Supreme Court ruled that such taxes violated the First Amendment. The documents show that the IRS had not enforced the gift tax since 1982.
But then, in February 2011, at least five donors of an unnamed organization were audited.
Any for any of you who think the Obama White House and most likely Obama himself was not directly behind this IRS scandal of targeting Obama’s conservative enemies, I bet you believe you can keep your doctor, hospital and healthcare plan under Obamacare too.
Remember when Barack Obama was elected and people said that it would make black/white race relations better … Hows that Hopey/Changey stuff working out for you America?
In 2008 many Americans, including many whites with liberal white guilt, elected Barack Hussein Obama because they thought it would ease race relation in the United States and some how correct the evils of slavery and past racism and discrimination. However, some seven years later and any thought of black/white race relations getting any better are out the window. According to a recent New York Times/CBS News poll, nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad. In fact, nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60% of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. However, it has now soared to 68%. But although blacks think race relations are worse, they could not find it in them-self to say that Obama has done a poor job with race relations. Imagine that. However, under Obama he has brought the racial pressure cooker to the brink and his taking of of one side has been on display for 7 years. It has become evident that with Obama, only black lives do matter, as he can only see himself as Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, rather than his half white side of murdered Kathryn Steinle. Too bad that Obama is supposed to be the leader of all, not just some.
As Instapundit opines, this is Obama’s true legacy.
Seven years ago, in the gauzy afterglow of a stirring election night in Chicago, commentators dared ask whether the United States had finally begun to heal its divisions over race and atone for the original sin of slavery by electing its first black president. It has not. Not even close.
A New York Times/CBS News poll conducted last week reveals that nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad, and that nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. By comparison, two-thirds of Americans surveyed shortly after President Obama took office said they believed that race relations were generally good.
The swings in attitude have been particularly striking among African-Americans. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60 percent of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. It has now soared to 68 percent, the highest level of discontent among blacks during the Obama years and close to the numbers recorded in the aftermath of the riots that followed the 1992 acquittal of Los Angeles police officers charged in the beating of Rodney King.
Wake up America, this is what happens when you elect a community agitator who’s entire presidency has been based on racial divide and class warfare. In many respects, the only reason why Obama was ever voted into office, especially among white voters, was because of the notion that he would some how make race relations better. It certainly was not because he was qualified to be president. However, how many times must you be reminded, its not about the color of one’s skin, it is about the content of their character.
Bill O’Reilly Says on The O’Reilly Factor … “I Think I Trust Iranian Regime More Than American Press”
Last night on the O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’ Reilly during his Talking Points memo stated that many Americans and Congress do not trust Obama to do anything. At issue now is the so-called Obama-Iranian nuclear framework deal that is questionable at best. O’Reilly went on to say that he did not trust the American Press to interpret the discussion with their Obama bias. O’Reilly then went on to say that he trusts Iran more than the America press. Sadly, that is the state of affairs with the liberal MSM today.
“Here’s what I don’t want. I don’t want the press, cause I don’t trust the press, I think I trust Iran more than I trust the American press. I don’t want the American press interpreting this for me.”
YOU KNOW YOU HAVE A BAD DEAL WHEN BOTH SIDES ARE COMPULSIVE LIARS …
Doesn’t this give you a warm fuzzy, just hours after the Iran nuclear deal was announced as a historic agreement between the United States and Iran over its nuclear program, Iran’s leading negotiator, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, lashed out at the Obama administration for lying about the details of a tentative framework. REALLY, OBAMA LIE? Because that has never happened during his disastrous president, NOT! So who are we to believe with such and important issue that affects US national security, the Middle East and Europe … The known liar, Barack Hussein Obama, or the known liars, the Iranian government? This is why Obama and his minions should never be allowed to make any deal like this, they cant be trusted to do right by America.
How sad and pathetic has it become in the United States when forced to choose between a US president and Iran as to who is lying, you can’t. So how did Obama sell this to the Iranians, if you like your uranium enriched centrifuges, you can keep your uranium enriched centrifuges?
Just hours after the announcement of what the United States characterized as a historic agreement with Iran over its nuclear program, the country’s leading negotiator lashed out at the Obama administration for lying about the details of a tentative framework.
Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif accused the Obama administration of misleading the American people and Congress in a fact sheet it released following the culmination of negotiations with the Islamic Republic.
Zarif bragged in an earlier press conference with reporters that the United States had tentatively agreed to let it continue the enrichment of uranium, the key component in a nuclear bomb, as well as key nuclear research.
Zarif additionally said Iran would have all nuclear-related sanctions lifted once a final deal is signed and that the country would not be forced to shut down any of its currently operating nuclear installations.
Following a subsequent press conference by Secretary of State John Kerry—and release of a administration fact sheet on Iranian concessions—Zarif lashed out on Twitter over what he dubbed lies.
KING Barack Obama Spoke at Civic Group in Cleveland, OH and Called for Mandatory Voting … Isn’t It a Right to Vote and a State? Judge Andrew Napolitano Rips the Constitutional Scholar Obama
MANDATORY VOTING … IF YOU LIKE THE PERSON YOU VOTED FOR YOU CAN KEEP VOTING FOR THEM … YEAH, WE ALL KNOW HOW THAT WORKED OUT WITH MANDATORY HEALTH CARE, DON’T WE?
Is Barack Obama an authoritarian fascist? One would think so with his recent comments where he floated the idea that voting should be mandatory in the United States. That is kind of comical coming from the man who could not find his way to vote as a state or federal Senator. Obama wants to making voting mandatory. What else id a wannabe King to do whose party did not show up in the last election, but make people vote. Obama calls it transformative, others would call it authoritarian. Exactly what part about the right to vote being a right doesn’t Obama understand? The right to vote is a form of free speech and you have both the right to vote or the right not to. But not with this fascist. But Obama does not have the best interest of America in mind when it comes to voting in the US, he would want people to be forced to vote who either, had no clue as to who or what was on the ballot or individuals who did not wish to volunteer in the process. Of course Obama is against voter ID so that one can prove they are who they are to vote.
President Obama, whose party was trounced in last year’s midterm election due in part to poor turnout among Democrats, endorsed the idea of mandatory voting Wednesday.
“It would be transformative if everybody voted,” Mr. Obama said during a town-hall event in Cleveland. “That would counteract [campaign] money more than anything. If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country.”
Mr. Obama raised the subject during a discussion of curbing the influence of campaign donations in U.S. elections. The president said he had never discussed the idea publicly before, but said Australia and some other countries have compulsory voting.
Appearing on Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” Judge Andrew Napolitano blasted President Barack. As Judge Napolitano said to Cavuto, “What kind of a right is this, the right to vote, if you don’t have the right to decide whether or not to exercise the right?” Napolitano went on to say, “the government can’t force you to stand up and say yes, it can’t force you to stand up and make a decision.” Napolitano further opined, “many people vote by not voting where they are basically saying, a pox on both your houses.”
However, Judge Andrew Napolitano reserved his best comment for last for Obama when he stated, “here is the boat that the president also misses. [...] In America there is no national federal election, there are 50 state elections. The states set the terms for elections. He couldn’t have the Congress do this even if he wanted to because that is an area reserved to the States. How could that Constitutional scholar have forgotten that?”
“No, I’m not happy with it at all,” Napolitano responded. “Look, voting is speech. It’s individual voters speaking to the government in the privacy of a voting booth. You have the right to free speech. The corollary to free speech is you have the right to remain silent. The government cannot force speech, the government cannot force voting.”
“What kind of a right is this, the right to vote, if you don’t have the right to decide whether or not to exercise the right?” he posed. “This is, forgive me, a totalitarian impulse, that he would march people into the voting booth …”
Judge Andrew Napolitano Rips Obama a new one on Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto,”
Barack Hussein Obama Refuses to Call Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu After His Big Victory (Update: Obama Finally Calls, “Reassess” Its options on US-Israel Relations)
THE INCREDIBLY SHRINKING PRESIDENT … JUST HOW SMALL, PETTY AND THIN SKINNED IS BARACK OBAMA.
One needs to look no further to witness the lack of class, the pettiness and the pathetic “smallish” behavior of President Barack Obama than to examine his behavior falling the victory by Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in yesterdays landslide election. Following Benjamin Netanyahu’s huge win, Barack Obama has not called the Israel Prime Minister to congratulate him. Even for Obama, this is small. Really, this is how we treat an ally? But the incredibly shrinking Obama is throwing a temper tantrum because Netanyahu’s big win means an Obama big and embarrassing loss. All of Obama’s attempts to interfere in the Israel election and have Netanyahu ousted were for naught.
But this is the sad state of affairs that the United States sees itself in as a clueless and apathetic electorate have voted this little Napoleon into office, who is the most liberal ideologue, that America has ever had to endure. So I guess the transformation of America is to attack our allies unless they goose-step to Obama’s wishes. 2016 cannot come soon enough.
Really, this president has the audacity to question anyone about using rhetotic in an election. Seriously Barack, you might want to take a look at yourself in the mirror and see just how you conducted yourself in the 2008 and 2012 elections. And the crap you have spewed in between.
UPDATE I: NY Times – Obama May Find It Impossible to Mend Frayed Ties to Netanyahu.
President Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel had a poisonous relationship long before Mr. Netanyahu swept to victory on Tuesday night in elections watched minute-by-minute at the White House.
But now that Mr. Netanyahu has won after aggressively campaigning against a Palestinian state and Mr. Obama’s potential nuclear deal with Iran, the question is whether the president and prime minister can ever repair their relationship — and whether Mr. Obama will even try.
On Wednesday, part of the answer seemed to be that the president would not make the effort.
In strikingly strong criticism, the White House called Mr. Netanyahu’s campaign rhetoric, in which he railed against Israeli Arabs because they went out to vote, an attempt to “marginalize Arab-Israeli citizens” and inconsistent with the values that bind Israel and the United States. The White House press secretary, Josh Earnest, told reporters traveling with Mr. Obama on Air Force One on Wednesday that Mr. Netanyahu’s statement was “deeply concerning and it is divisive and I can tell you that these are views the administration intends to communicate directly to the Israelis.”
UPDATE II: Obama calls to congratulate Netanyahu.
Barack Obama finally calls to congratulate Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his recent victory; however, it was far from friendly or cordial. The thin skinned Obama, still smarting from his guy not winning the Israel election, basically made the following salutations, Congratulations, and by the way, we’re going to re-access our policy with Israel since you won. How big of Obama.
President Barack Obama told Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday that Washington would “reassess” its options on U.S.-Israel relations and Middle East diplomacy after the Israeli prime minister took a position against Palestinian statehood during his re-election campaign, a White House official said.
Obama’s telephone call to Netanyahu followed a television interview in which the Israeli leader backed away from his pre-election declaration that there would be no Palestinian state on his watch, an about-face apparently aimed at quelling U.S. criticism triggered by his comments.
The White House, unmoved by Netanyahu’s effort to backtrack, delivered a fresh rebuke against him on Thursday and signaled that Washington may reconsider its decades-old policy of shielding close ally Israel from international pressure at the United Nations.
Chuck Norris Makes Last-Minute Campaign Video For Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (VIDEO) … (Update) WOW, Roseanne Barr Tweets support for Netanyahu & Bashes Obama
As the Obama administration interferes with the Israel Prime Minister election and the State Department help fund a non-profit organization that openly supports Benjamin Netanyahu’s opponent, actor Chuck Norris makes a last minute campaign video and plea to the Jewish voters to, Please vote for Prime Minister Netanyahu!
As Israelis prepared to head to the polls in a tightly contested national election, embattled Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday got one last bit of help from septuagenarian tough guy Chuck Norris.
The former star of “Walker Texas Ranger” stumped for Netanyahu in a YouTube video posted to the star’s own account, simply titled, “Please vote for Prime Minister Netanyahu!”
“I watched Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech before Congress, and I saw a man who loves his country with all his heart and soul,” Norris said in the video.
WHAT, ANOTHER OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SCANDAL … Senate Panel to Investigate Obama Connection to Anti-Bibi Campaign.
A U.S. Senate investigatory committee has launched a bipartisan probe into an American nonprofit’s funding of efforts to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after the Obama administration’s State Department gave the nonprofit taxpayer-funded grants, a source with knowledge of the panel’s activities told FoxNews.com.
The Senate investigatory subcommittee has subpoena powers, but no comments on the investigation were available. One source disclosed that the probe was looking at the OneVoice Movement, a group in Washington which has received $350,000 from the State Department. One Voice, founded in 2002, is an international organization pushing Israelis and Palestinians toward the two-state solution. OneVoice’s work is concentrated in Israel and Palestine, with offices in Tel Aviv, Ramallah, and Gaza City. One voice has organized rallies in Ramalla, bringing left-wing Israeli students to hear Mahmoud Abbas speak. Most left-wing activists are suspicious of the group.
Who does this to an ally? More deceitful behavior from the most transparent administration ever who wants to fundamentally transform America and the world. One might replace transform with destroy. But this is what a community agitator does.
UPDATE I: The Gateway Pundit is correct … PIGS DO FLY … Left actress Roseanne Barr tweets support for Benjamin Netanyahu and bashes Barack Hussein Obama. Who would have thunk it? Barr calls Netanyahu’s opponent, Herzog, Obama’s puppet.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Admits President Obama Knew Hillary Clinton Had a Private Email Address
LIAR IN CHIEF ALERT: THAT DIDN’T TAKE LONG FOR THE WH TO HAVE TO EXPLAIN OBAMA’S LIES ON SUNDAY THAT HE JUST LEARNED ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON’S EMAILS …
Shocker … White House spokesman Josh Earnest stated today that President Barack Obama was aware of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email address, even though the Barack Obama himself said he first learned about her private account from news reports during an interview with CBS News yesterday. Can you say pathetic? As opined at The Blaze, Earnest tried to explain Monday what Obama really meant in an interview with CBS News, when asked if that mean there were no emails between the two. Seriously America, why would Obama, the do-called great orator need Earnest to explain Monday what he really meant? What’s the matter Barack, was your teleprompter not handy during the interview?
“The president, as I think many people expected, did over the course of his first several years in office trade emails with the secretary of state,” Earnest said. “I would not describe the number of emails as large, but they did have the occasion to email one another.”
“The point the president was making was not that he didn’t know Secretary Clinton’s email address. He did,” Earnest said. “But, he was not aware of the details of how that email address and that server had been set up or how Secretary Clinton and her team were planning to comply with the federal record law.”
Bull, the question was, when was the first time he learned that Hillary Clinton was using an email system outside the US government for official business while she was Secretary of State? Obama answered, the same time everybody else did. Sorry Charlie, you have passed yourself off as the first tech savvy, Internet using, social media, blackberry using president. You knew damn well that an email account not ending in .gov was not on a government server. To say otherwise not only make you a liar, but a bold-faced liar.
THIS ADMINISTRATION IS INCAPABLE OF TELLING THE TRUTH.
Barack Hussain Obama, The Most Uninformed President Ever …. Claims He Learned of Hillary Clinton Used a Private, Nongovernment Email Account as Secretary of State Through News Reports
SORRY OBAMA, YOU CAN ONLY USE THAT SAME EXCUSE 7 TIMES, NOT 8 …
From the most transparent presidency ever comes yet another scandal, this time its Hillary email-gate. Barack Obama was asked by Bill Plant of CBS News in a sit down interview when was the first time he learned that Hillary Clinton was using an email system outside the US government for official business while she was Secretary of State? Obama’s response, more BS … “Ah, the sane time everybody else learned it through news reports“. Seriously Mr. Obama, is that your final answer? Let me just say this … YOU ARE A LIAR! We are supposed to believe that Barack Obama, the most tech savvy president ever, never received an email from Hillary Clinton from her private email account for official business? REALLY? No one believes that. You mean the tech savvy Obama doesn’t know that a government account ends in .gov? But then again, the Obama presidency is the most transparent ever, because the Liar is Chief says so. Are we really supposed to believe that if there was no news outlets, Obama would know nothing?
President Barack Obama said it was through news reports that he first learned that Hillary Rodham Clinton used a private, nongovernment email account while serving as his secretary of state.
In an interview Saturday with CBS News, Obama said he’s glad that Clinton has instructed that those emails about official business be disclosed. He also maintained that his administration remains the most transparent ever.
Clinton has drawn criticism for using a private server during the four years she was the nation’s top diplomat. Her sidestepping official government email also raises questions about whether all pertinent messages have been preserved as well as turned over for congressional investigations and lawsuits.
President Obama only learned of Hillary Clinton’s private email address use for official State Department business after a New York Times report, he told CBS News in an interview.
CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante asked Mr. Obama when he learned about her private email system after his Saturday appearance in Selma, Alabama.
“The same time everybody else learned it through news reports,” the president told Plante.
Mr. Obama’s comments follow a long week of media scrutiny surrounding Hillary Clinton’s private email address and the “home-brewed” server that hosted it.
“The policy of my administration is to encourage transparency, which is why my emails, the BlackBerry I carry around, all those records are available and archived,” Mr. Obama said. “I’m glad that Hillary’s instructed that those emails about official business need to be disclosed.”
Barack Obama is either the biggest and most pathetic liar we have ever had the misfortune as having as President of the United States or he is the stupidest, most uniformed and laziest one. Take your pick America. Barack Obama is telling us once again that he just learned about the latest scandal during his presidency regarding Hillary Clinton using private email account and server from the media. Sound familiar, as Yogi Berra would say, “its like deja vu all over again”. Didn’t Obama use this same lame excuse and lie for the following scandals:
- WH spox Carney says that President Obama only found out about the VA scandal recently from news reports. (VIDEO) But he of course was lying, he knew since 2008.
- Obama said that he first learned about IRS-gate from the the same news reports that I think most people learned about this.
- Obama and his surrogates have claimed he learned of several other scandals from broadcast or print news stories also include Operation Fast and Furious.
- Obama also said he only learned in the news the DOJ’s seizure of two months of Associated Press phone records.
- NSA Denies Obama Knew Of Spying On German Leader
- HHS Chief: President Didn’t Know Of Obamacare Website Woes Beforehand
- Obama Claims He Didn’t Know About the Petraeus Investigation
DON’T CROSS BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA OR YOU WILL BE RETALIATED AGAINST … WHEN DEMOCRATS ATTACK THEIR OWN FOR NOT FOLLOWING IN LOCK STEP.
The Obama Department of Justice headed by Eric Holder is bringing criminal corruption charges against Democrat, New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez. The DOJ is alleging that Menendez used his Senate office to push the business interests of a Democratic donor and friend in exchange for gifts. Really, doesn’t Barack Obama do that every day with the Oval Office? How many crony and Obama campaign bundlers have been rewarded HERE, HERE and HERE? No quid pro quo here. How many were given so-called “green energy” government money to Obama donors? How about Obama using the office of the President of the United States in conjunction with the IRS to attack Conservatives. Where are those DOJ charges, hmm?
In response, Sen. Menendez told reporters Friday night he has “always conducted myself appropriately and in accordance with the law” and “I am not going anywhere.”
Sen. Robert Menendez Defends Himself Against Anticipated Federal Charges
The Justice Department is preparing to bring criminal corruption charges against Sen. Robert Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, alleging he used his Senate office to push the business interests of a Democratic donor and friend in exchange for gifts.
People briefed on the case say Attorney General Eric Holder has signed off on prosecutors’ request to proceed with charges, CNN first reported. An announcement could come within weeks. Prosecutors are under pressure in part because of the statute of limitation on some of the allegations.
Menendez told reporters Friday night he has “always conducted myself appropriately and in accordance with the law.”
He added: “And I am not going anywhere.”
The government’s case centers on Menendez’s relationship with Salomon Melgen, a Florida ophthalmologist who the senator has called a friend and political supporter. Melgen and his family have been generous donors to the senator and various committees the senator is associated with.
I am no fan of Sen. Menedez and certainly do not support much of what he puts forth, but the question one might want to ask here, is why now? One does not have to look any further than Sen. Menedez being an outspoken critic of Obama and his policies on Cuba and Iran. Don’t cross Obama or this think skinned, vindictive president will go after you. His actions have made him Obama’s least favorite Democrat … vengeance is mine say the Obamamessiah.
Who can forget when Sen. Menedez said in a Senate Foreign Relations Committee back in January 2015, “the More I hear from the Obama administration and its quotes, the more it sounds like talking points that come straight out of Tehran.” Menedez had nothing good to say about how the Obama administration was handling negotiations with Iran. We all saw how Obama and his hacks treated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of his speech to a joint session of Congress and after. Why should we be surprised that Obama would put Democrat Robert Menedez on his enemies list.
The Gateway Pundit also reminds us of Robert Menedez’s recent comments where he blasted the Obama administration for the historic bad deal they reached with the Castro regime in Cuba. If you are a Democrat, you are not allowed to disagree with this president or you will be dealt with swiftly and severely. Its kind of ironic that the Obama administration would go after any kind of corruption when the Obama presidency has been nothing but corruption and scandals.
