Judicial Watch Uncovers Obama IRS Audit Abuse

IRS Documents Show How the Renegade Tax Agency Used Donor Lists to Steer Audits

Judicial Watch has released more blockbuster documents from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that confirm that the IRS used donor lists of tax-exempt organizations to target those donors for audits. The documents also show that IRS officials specifically highlighted how the U.S. Chamber of Commerce may come under “high scrutiny” from the IRS. We forced these records out through a Freedom of Information lawsuit seeking documents about the selection of individuals for audits, based upon application information and donor lists submitted by Tea Party and other 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organizations.

In 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.”

Sure enough, in 2010, after receiving Baucus’ 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.

United States President Surrenders Flag to Our Enemies!

We have watched President Obama honor plenty of fallen Americans, but the majority of them just happen to be crooks, thieves, illegal aliens or followers of Islam!  What happened to honoring our fallen Military? The men and women who fight for our freedoms. What happened to honoring our fallen citizens? The hard-working Americans who have been killed as a result of our own President’s failed policies or his refusal to follow our rule of law?

President Obama wasted no time in shining the rainbow lights on the White House, at taxpayer’s expense, after the Supreme Court ruled on Gay marriage. Yet crosses around the country are being torn down in the name of political correctness and personal feelings.  The confederate flag has been under attack by the left and the administration as a symbol of hatred, yet symbols celebrating Islam have become more prominent, while Islamic terrorists continue to behead, imprison, drown and burn innocents, while raping young girls, threatening to murder gays, Jews and Christians, setting dogs on fire and laughing while they torture and murder babies and children.  Does Islam not represent hatred and disdain for all citizens of the world? Then why does our President continue to celebrate it?

The President is ‘The Other’

For those who drank the hope and change Kool-Aid, here’s some bad news: the ‘fundamental transformation of America’ is in full swing and as they used to say in show biz, “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”

That’s because the last 18 months of this corrupt narcissist’s rule will make the first six-and-a-half years look like a high school civics lesson in good governance. I have always found it ironic that the son of a Kenyan Muslim Marxist and disaffected white liberal woman should grow up to become President of the United States. What’s more, the way in which he arrived at the presidency is shall we say, unusual.

Here’s a guy who was elected on the basis of being a good-looking black man who could speak well. We’ve never read anything that he wrote during his law school years, don’t know what his grades were, in fact, that entire chapter of his life is securely under seal. Why would that be?

And for those of us who believed that Constitutional Government entailed a series of checks and balances between the three branches of government, the Obama years have permanently disabused us of that notion.

Obama Has Not Ordered Flag Flown at Half-Staff for Servicemen Killed in Chattanooga Terror Attack

Gateway Pundit

This Sunday marks three days since an Islamist gunman opened fire Thursday on military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee, killing five unarmed servicemen and wounding a policeman.

President Barack Obama still has not ordered the lowering of the U.S. flag to half-staff at the White House and federal properties as a sign of respect and mourning for those killed, even though he (and former President George W. Bush) did so for previous mass killings by lone gunmen.

In contrast it was only a matter of hours after the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage last month before Obama bathed the White House in the rainbow hues of the LGBTQ movement.

Also, Obama issued same-day orders lowering the flag following the the July 20, 2012 Aurora, Colorado mass shooting, December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook, Connecticut mass shooting and the September 16, 2013 Washington Navy Yard mass shooting.

Obama ordered the flag flown at half-staff the day after the November 5, 2009 Fort Hood, Texas massacre.

President George W. Bush ordered the flag lowered for the April 16, 2007 Virginia Tech massacre the day after that attack.

Obama apparently did not order flags lowered following the Charleston mass shooting last month, however he went to Charleston and delivered the eulogy at the funeral for the Reverend Clementa Pinckney. Several state governors did issue orders to lower flags in their respective states to honor the Charleston victims.

Obama’s selectivity on whether to honor victims of terror attacks or mass shootings was in evidence in May when Obama made no public or written statement on the Islamist terror attack in Garland, Texas.

Obama vacationed in New York City this weekend. Meanwhile several state governors took steps to arm National Guard troops under their command and issued proclamations ordering flags in their respective states be flown at half-staff to honor those killed in the Chattanooga attack.

The Pentagon said the day after the attack it would continue to leave recruiters unarmed and unprotected, and ordered Marine recruiters to not wear their uniforms to work.

President Obama Has a Banner Burn the Constitution Week

Global Government Here We Come!

Obama burning

Constitutional lawyer and red diaper baby, Barack Obama, obviously rejects the concept of the separation of powers, disdains Congress and its role, and is impatient with the idea that he should have to follow or respect the findings of the courts. This week’s events have proven the point on both climate change, the nuclear deal and even housing.

On July 8th, Senator Sessions spoke with George Mason University law professor Jeremy Rabkin at a congressional hearing who told lawmakers that Obama’s unilateral commitment to a U.N. agreement/treaty on climate change without Senate ratification was “a real change in our Constitution.”

“So, now we’re going to have some body, in some entity, in some foreign country that’s going to be directing us?” Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions asked Rabkin over Obama’s emissions reduction promise.

“And what this is fundamentally about is saying, ‘ah, that’s old-fashioned, forget that, that didn’t work for Clinton– we’re moving forward with something different which the president gets to commit us,’” Rabkin added. “That’s a real change in our Constitution.”

Jade Helm, Terrorist Attacks, Surveillance, and Other Fairy Tales for a Gullible Nation

Freedom Outpost

Once upon a time, there was a nation of people who believed everything they were told by their government.

When terrorists attacked the country, and government officials claimed to have been caught by surprise, the people believed them. And when the government passed massive laws aimed at locking down the nation and opening the door to total government surveillance, the people believed it was done merely to keep them safe. The few who disagreed were labeled traitors.

When the government waged costly preemptive wars on foreign countries, insisting it was necessary to protect the nation, the citizens believed it. And when the government brought the weapons and tactics of war home to use against the populace, claiming it was just a way to recycle old equipment, the people believed that too. The few who disagreed were labeled unpatriotic.

Texas Leaders Come Forward, Issue Major Statement About Obama’s “Jade Helm”

OBAMA LIAR LIAR

Conservative Tribune

Many Texans distrust President Barack Hussein Obama’s planned Jade Helm military exercise and think it might be part of a broader plan to impose martial law on them, and two Texas leaders just explained why.

According to Bastrop County Republican Party Chairman Albert Ellison, the fact that Obama “was raised by communists and mentored by terrorists” has “painted a portrait in the minds of many conservatives that he is capable of this sort of thing.”

Add to this the fact that Obama is a chronic liar who continually places his own political ambitions over the well-being of everyday Americans.
