Forfeiture Laws: IRS Can Seize Your Accounts Without Any Criminal Charge

A relatively recent policy update to civil asset forfeiture laws has given the IRS and other law enforcement agencies a new cash cow. Because now they can seize your accounts even without criminal charges or criminal connections: But the Institute for Justice, a Washington-based public interest law firm that is seeking to reform civil forfeiture practices, analyzed structuring data from the I.R.S., which made 639 seizures in 2012, up from 114 in 2005. Only one in five was prosecuted as a criminal Read more […]

IRS Winning Against the Tea Party

The first two lawsuits against the IRS brought by suppressed Tea Party organizations have been decided. In favor of the IRS. The method of the Taxman’s victory? Finally give the Tea Party groups tax-exempt status: Judge Reggie Walton of the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia dismissed almost all counts brought against the tax-collecting agency in two cases, ruling that both were essentially moot now that the IRS granted the groups their tax-exempt status that had been held up for Read more […]

Lois Lerner Says She is Not Worse than Jeffrey Dahmer

In a puzzling issuance of high self-praise, the infamous former IRS director Lois Lerner has stated that she is definitively not worse than the anthropophagic serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. Congratulations! This came in a recent interview with Politico: Lerner said she tunes out the news reports centered on her. “I probably would have lost my mind if I had read it all, because your reaction when this happens is, ‘Wait a minute, let me explain to you what happened,’” she said. Instead, Read more […]

Emails Prove that IRS Head Ignored “Dirty Money” from Liberal Unions While Persecuting Conservatives!

The official at the center of the IRS tea party scandal once dismissed complaints that labor unions were not reporting millions of dollars in political activities on their tax forms, according to an email obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. In 2007, Lerner responded directly to a complaint that some major labor unions reported completely different amounts of political expenditures when filing with the IRS and the Department of Labor. At the time of the email, Lerner was the Director of Read more […]

Fox News Host Goes Off on Liberal Over Obama’s Incompetence!

Fox News’ Martha MacCallum has heard enough of the talking points from liberals about the Obama administration and she wants no more of it! The discussion of Fox News was supposed to center on the IRS lost emails and the Obamacare rollout with Fox’s own in house liberal Bob Beckel to balance out the discussion. But Beckel made one important misstep… he parroted weak White House talking points and tried to defend the “technology” problems the Obama administrations keeps having. That’s Read more […]

CNN Asks – Why Can’t Americans Use the same Excuses as the IRS?

On Thursday CNN’s Wolf Blitzer interviewed IRS chief John Koskinen, who recently flubbed his way through a couple of hours of Congressional testimony. At one point Blitzer wondered why private companies and individuals had a much higher threshold of responsibility when it came to record keeping than the IRS does. It would seem that the IRS should hold itself to the same level of responsibility that they require of others who are forced to file taxes. Partial Transcript: BLITZER: The — Read more […]

The Smoking Hard Drive: Did Lois Lerner Knowingly Destroy Evidence?

About a year ago, Lois Lerner got in big trouble when it became clear that the IRS was knowingly targeting right-wing groups for closer scrutiny before granting tax-exempt status. The scandal that ensued resulted in her resignation, but the whole story had not yet come to light. One of the major unanswered questions was, “How much of this was the White House aware of, and did the White House actually encourage or even order the IRS to make it difficult on right-wing organizations?” That Read more […]

The Dog Ate My Tax Receipts Act

Conservative Republican Steve Stockman (R-TX) has written a bill that will allow Americans to use the same excuses that the IRS is using in trying to avoid tax problems! Stockman’s bill is not expected to gain any traction in the House, but the plan is to make some waves in the media. Hopefully, with some extra publicity the Republicans can shame Democrats and the White House into action on the IRS Scandal. The only problem with the plan is that the Democrats oftentimes have no shame. So we’ll Read more […]

IRS Targeting Occurred Back in 2009

According to the general consensus, the IRS targeting of conservative groups began on March 1, 2010 when a manager in the Cincinnati office instructed employees to watch for 501(c)3 non-profit applications that had the words Tea Party, Patriots and 9/12. However, a lawsuit filed against the IRS indicates that IRS targeting was taking place in 2009, but the media is not reporting any of it. Have you ever heard of a mission group called Z Street? Very few of us have heard of them. They are a Read more […]
