Yes, Obama really does believe the American people are stupid. Anyone with a brain knows Obama borders on a pathological liar (someone who lies even when they don't have to lie) and a poll taken Monday showed that 37% of the people surveyed believe Obama is honest. Go figure. When one considers the groups targeted, it wasn't just Tea Party groups but any group that wanted spending reduced and even groups that were pro-Israel. These groups have been held up for tax-exempt approval for years while Obama's relative's group was OK'd in one month. Pro-Muslim groups got speedy approval as opposed to those friendly towards Israel.

as stated on the other site, not only were conservative groups seeking tax exempt status targeted then, liberal groups were also targeted, but that isn't relevant for some........

Like Boehner said...not who is fired, but who is going to jail. Remember Scooter going down not for being the known outer but to have disagreed with a "respected journalist". If I may quote Obama..."It's our turn".

Gio will probably take comfort knowing that 37% agree with him. But Gio, give explicit examples of liberal, progressive, Muslim groups that were discriminated by the IRS. Also, please list your trusted source. As a matter of fact, the group named after Obama got approval in one month. Until you do so, it's reasonable for the rest of us to think this is just you trying to rationalize the bubble you live in that Obama is honest and wonderful.

Sad state of affairs when the only thing Obama and Holder do know is Arizona is racist and are not allowed to bust illegal aliens.

Any ********* who submitted documents to the IRS claiming their "tea party" was not primarily political in order to secure tax-exempt status should be jailed for fraud.

lonerider--I supplied you with all the proof you need, that IRS targeting is nothing new in the political arena you need-I challenge you to prove the examples I posted and the site I supplied you with are false---and please don't run and hide as you did when monkeyboy challenged you for your invisible "proof." You are not interested in any honest exchange--only insults and baseless accusations........

Here is a News Flash for you - All personal income tax (100%) collected by the I.R.S. goes to the Federal Reserve, aka the FED. This basically implies that the I.R.S. works for the FED. For example, according to the Congressional Research Service, 100% of all personal income tax collected for the year 2005 went, not to the government to provide goods and services expected, but to the FED. This was also pointed out by the Grace Commission, appointed by Ronald Reagan, in 1984.

More - Some people think the Federal Reserve Banks are U.S. government institutions. They are not . . . they are private credit monopolies which prey upon the people of the U.S. for the benefit of themselves and their foreign and domestic swindlers, and rich and predatory money lenders. The sack of the United States by the Fed is the greatest crime in history. Every effort has been made by the Fed to conceal its powers, but the truth is the Fed has usurped the government. It controls everything here and it controls all our foreign relations. It makes and breaks governments at will." -- Congressman Louis McFadden, Chairman, House Banking and Currency Committee, June 10, 1932

And - And, to sum it all up: Timothy Geithner, Treasury Secretary and former President of the New York Federal Reserve, said at the September 21, 2011, meeting of the E.U. Finance ministers, “Obama is not in charge, I am.”

More - You might think that the I.R.S. is owned by our government. A branch that collects taxes from the citizens in order to fund our government. If you think that, you would be wrong. The I.R.S. is owned by entities outside our country, and by its operation is a collection agency for the Federal Reserve. As you may know, the Federal Reserve is not a governmental agency, but it is a private bank that lends our government money. Our tax money is collected by the I.R.S. and sent directly to the Federal Reserve banking system.

Our government is financed much in the same way as you might finance your home. The politicians spend so much money that there is no way that the taxes collected would be enough to pay for all their activities. So, they borrow money from the banking cartels, and they tell the banking cartels that they can go get the money from the citizens. We the people, our labors, our person, is then owned by the banking cartels just as your home us actually owned by the mortgage company. Don’t pay your mortgage payment and you’ll quickly see who really owns your home. Don’t pay your taxes and the I.R.S. has the “right” to garnish your wages and freeze your accounts. That is because our government sold us to the banking cartels as collateral many years ago. We are property used as collateral for the loans that our politicians take out against us. We are slaves – literally.

When you see how things actually operate, you can begin to see how these enterprises operate much like organized crime. The government is the enforcement division, the I.R.S. is the collection division, and the big banks are for money laundering. Unfortunately all of the money collected goes only to interest payments against the HUGE debt (loans) that our politicians have taken out against us. They keep spending and we keep paying. Illegal as it is, they have the bigger guns.

This was some advice for you from a Former IRS Agent - If a special agent reads you your rights at the beginning of an interview, demand to see your lawyer. The agent will terminate the interview. If you're going into business (either alone or with partners), get good legal advice on how to shield your assets from the enforcement powers of the IRS and other creditors. If you are already in business and want to shield your assets from the IRS, you must do it before incurring a tax liability. Otherwise the IRS can take you to court or nullify the transaction. If you own a car you think the IRS might seize, you can legally sell it and then rent a car the IRS can't touch. Don't believe it when the IRS threatens to seize everything you own. The law allows some automatic exemptions. If you leave no paper trail of bank accounts and other transactions, the revenue officer will have a hard time tracing your property. What he can't find he can't seize.
