Get out that tinfoil

Go, men, there's someone lecturing on constitutional rights!

Go, men, there’s someone lecturing on constitutional rights!

No, it wasn’t just “low-level IRS workers from Cincinnati” who were targeting Obama foes – that was yesterday’s version. Now it’s “senior IRS officials”. 

Legal Insurrection:

WASHINGTON (AP) — IRS watchdog: Senior IRS officials knew in 2011 tea parties’ tax-exempt status being targeted.

AP has expanded its report now :

A federal watchdog’s upcoming report says senior Internal Revenue Service officials knew agents were targeting tea party groups in 2011.

The disclosure contradicts public statements by former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman, who repeatedly assured Congress that conservative groups were not targeted.

On Friday, the IRS apologized for what it acknowledged was “inappropriate” targeting of conservative political groups during the 2012 election to see if those groups were violating their tax-exempt status.

The Treasury’s inspector general for tax administration is expected to release the results of a nearly yearlong investigation in the coming week.

On Jan, 25, 2012, the criteria for flagging suspect groups was changed to, “political action type organizations involved in limiting/expanding Government, educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, social economic reform/movement,” the report says.

Got that? The Chief Counsel knew, and in an election year the targeting expanded to groups educating people on the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Remember, you’re not paranoid, they really do hate you. At the highest levels.

As IRS admits it targeted Tea Party groups, remember IRS is Obamacare enforcer.

      You’re probably right, but sometimes I wonder: Can one lose something one does not already possess?

    You’re going to need a lot of tin foil for this one:

    ‘It’s Dishonest to Talk about Benghazi Without Talking About the Syrian War’
    ‘Both Parties Are Trying to Sweep the Bigger Story Under the Rug’

    “According to Democrats, today’s Congressional hearings on Benghazi are nothing but a partisan witch hunt.

    According to Republicans, the Obama administration committed treason in it’s handling of Benghazi … and then tried to cover it up.

    Both parties are avoiding the bigger picture … The fact that Democrats and Republicans alike have been using Benghazi as the center of U.S. efforts to arm the Al Qaeda-affiliated Syrian rebels.

    Specifically, the U.S. supported opposition which overthrew Libya’s Gadaffi was largely comprised of Al Qaeda terrorists.

    According to a 2007 report by West Point’s Combating Terrorism Center’s center, the Libyan city of Benghazi was one of Al Qaeda’s main headquarters – and bases for sending Al Qaeda fighters into Iraq – prior to the overthrow of Gaddafi:

    The Hindustan Times reported in 2011:

    “There is no question that al Qaeda’s Libyan franchise, Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, is a part of the opposition,” Bruce Riedel, former CIA officer and a leading expert on terrorism, told Hindustan Times.

    It has always been Qaddafi’s biggest enemy and its stronghold is Benghazi.

    Al Qaeda is now largely in control of Libya. Indeed, Al Qaeda flags were flown over the Benghazi courthouse once Gaddafi was toppled.

    (Incidentally, Gaddafi was on the verge of invading Benghazi in 2011, 4 years after the West Point report cited Benghazi as a hotbed of Al Qaeda terrorists. Gaddafi claimed – rightly it turns out – that Benghazi was an Al Qaeda stronghold and a main source of the Libyan rebellion. But NATO planes stopped him, and protected Benghazi.)

    In 2011, Ambassador Stevens was appointed to be the Obama administration’s liaison with the “budding Libyan opposition,” according to ABC News. Stevens and the State Department worked directly with Abdelhakim Belhadj of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group. Belhadj has direct connections to al-Qaeda.

    CNN, the Telegraph, the Washington Times, and many other mainstream sources confirm that Al Qaeda terrorists from Libya have since flooded into Syria to fight the Assad regime.

    Mainstream sources also confirm that the Syrian opposition is largely comprised of Al Qaeda terrorists. (Indeed, the New York Times reported last week that virtually all of the rebel fighters are Al Qaeda terrorists.)

    The U.S. has been arming the Syrian opposition since 2006. The post-Gaddafi Libyan government is also itself a top funder and arms supplier of the Syrian opposition.

    This brings us to the murder of ambassador Stevens …” […]

    • Indeed, AJ, the evidence is quite clear that we were running guns to Syria, and Stevens was coordinating that effort. Maybe a good idea, maybe not – seems like a mistake we’re going to regret, but what do I know? – but from everything I can find to read on the subject, that’s what was happening. Probably still is, in fact, though no doubt from a different host country.

    Dude –
    Did you ever really believe this was limited to low level IRS workers? You naive little bitch.

    I think people are starting to get it, and unless the Libtards start to wake up, this could get ugly. Did you see that “Mother and Father” is now a politically incorrect adjective? (An adjective is the part of speech that modifies a noun or other substantive by limiting, qualifying, or specifying and distinguished in English morphologically by one of several suffixes, such as -able, -ous, -er, and -est, or syntactically by position directly preceding a noun or nominal phrase.)

    I am not making this shit up!! The reasonable people, those who have some remaining common sense, and have been going along with this Liberal lunacy in the hopes of achieving some peace, ARE BEING PUSHED TO FAR!!

    ENOUGH YOU POLITICALLY CORRECT FUCKTARDS!! You are banging the drum to hard, and it is about to burst. Government under Obama has grown out of control, and it impacts EVER ASPECT of how people live.

    It is out of control, and people are starting to really resent it.
    They decide what you eat, what you can say, and how you can say it. They decide what health care you get, and how you get it. They use regulations to decide who wins and who loses. They decide “how much is enough” and how much you need to live or retire on. They decide what “your fair share” is. They control the MSM and decide via propaganda what people think. WHO FUCKING AGREED TO THIS? NOT ME!!

    This is all undeniable. Now line that up with the guiding principles we were founded on, and ask yourself what our Founding Fathers would do?

    They would kick ass and take names, and declare this TOTAL BULLSHIT.
    It is despicable, inexcusable, abhorrent, and sickening what is going on today. And all at lightning speed. Jackie Chiles DUDE!!

    Your Pal,

    I’m praying this is all what it looks like – that Barry and the boys are building the makings for an unstoppable avalanche, not born of stupidity but of hubris, and that it will bury them all. I’m hoping they are all about to find out there IS a god.

    What is the IRS’s motive for “coming out” on this issue, of their own accord? Seems odd.

    • Here’s why, from the AP article: The Treasury’s inspector general for tax administration is expected to release the results of a nearly yearlong investigation in the coming week. The Associated Press obtained part of the draft report.”

      So that’s why they released the story early — they knew it was coming out anyway.

        Makes you wonder how many noble or honest gestures started with “HOLY CRAP!! THEY KNOW!!”
