'Conservative group says IRS approved nonprofit status after applying with ‘liberal-sounding name’
Wed, May 15, 2013

In May 2011, Drew Ryun, a conservative activist and former Republican National Committee staffer, began filling out the Internal Revenue Service application to achieve nonprofit status for a new conservative watchdog group.

He submitted the paperwork to the IRS in July 2011 for a research site called Media Trackers, which calls itself a "non-partisan investigative watchdog dedicated to promoting accountability in the media and government." Although the site has investigated Republicans like Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Florida Gov. Rick Scott, the site's organizers are unapologetically conservative.

"One thing we don't hide is:'Yeah, we're conservative—free-market, free-enterprise, full-spectrum conservative,'" Ryun told Mother Jones magazine last year.

Eight months passed without word from the agency about the group's application, Ryun said. In February 2012, Ryun's attorney contacted the IRS to ask if it needed more information to secure its nonprofit status as a 501(c)3 organization. According to Ryun, the IRS told him that the application was being processed by the agency's office in Cincinnati, Ohio—the same one currently facing scrutiny for targeting conservative groups—and to check back in two months.

As directed, Ryun followed up with the IRS in April 2012, and was told that Media Trackers' application was still under review.

When September 2012 arrived with still no word from the IRS, Ryun determined that Media Trackers would likely never obtain standalone nonprofit status, and he tried a new approach: He applied for permanent nonprofit status for a separate group called GREENHOUSE SOLUTIONS, a pre-existing organization that was reaching the end of its determination period.

The IRS approved Greenhouse Solutions' request for permanent nonprofit status in THREE WEEKS.

Get your finger out of your nose and wise up.

It was the oldest school in Moore. All other schools were built with storm shelters.

So eat your boogers and blame republicans. Both are just as disgusting.

(FYI: The housing market collapse brought down the economy you imbecile. Obama and your precious democrats spent more in three years than Bush did his entire presidency.)

You disgust me beyond words.

The idea that you asked if John McCain met with Al Qaeda to see what help they needed implies that we would have given he opportunity.
The idea you ask shows that you just aren't very well informed, as we already suspected.
After all, wouldn't a Republican want to get Al Qaeda to attack another consulate so they could mount another investigation in hopes of winning more votes?
After all, they already used the deaths of 4 Americans in Libya for political purposes, they have already made sure our recovery from the Bush recession suffered for political purposes, so heck, why not arrange another terrorist attack.
McCain was probably seeing if the RNC & the NRA could hire a few terrorist.
Well informed....
Al Qaeda is Wahhabist, as are all the Suni terrorists of today, to include the Muslim Brotherhood that has a permenant presence in the White House.
Al Qaeda is in Syria fighting against the Assad regime alligned with Shi'ite Iran.
This is nothing more than another stupid Suni - Shi'ite war over territory. The end result will not mean any changes to either the United States or Israel. Both the Wahhabists and Shi'ite are at war with both.
What is happening is the resurection of the old United Arab Republic, only this time the Wahhabists will be in control, and not a secular dictator like Nassar.
You're an idiot.

Now, did McCain meet with Al Qaeda?

Would you be talking about the number one gun runner for Mexican drug cartels and the person who rushed the Saudi national detained at the scene of the bombing out of the country before the Boston police could interrogate him? Would you be talking about the person who was just reently busted for illegally wire tapping journalists?
Do you really think anyone would actually believe anything Eric Holder would say?

Riiiiiiiiiiigggghhhhhhhhhttttt ttttttt..........
Like Holder is going to send to prison the people who gave so much money in bribes to Obama, it was only Christopher Dodd in the entire Congress they gave more money to.

Barack Obama has done so much for our soldiers & their families that you, your pathetic party, or George W Bush EVER did.
My God, start a war about oil & send soldiers to it without body armor or properly armored vehicles - that is respect for our troops?

In other news, Michelle Bachmann announced she will not run for re-election.

Seems that ethics investigation is taking a toll on poor little Miss Whackjob!! So like her sister in stupidity, Sarah Palin, she chooses to quit!!

""“And rest assured, this decision was not impacted in any way by the recent inquiries into the activities of my former presidential campaign or my former presidential staff," she continued. "It was clearly understood that compliance with all rules and regulations was an absolute necessity for my presidential campaign. And I have no reason to believe that that was not the case."
The tea party favorite left the door open for a return to politics: "There is no future option or opportunity, be it directly in the political arena or otherwise, that I won't be giving serious consideration if it can help save and protect our great nation."

----------

Sure Michelle. Innocent people always drop out because they're innocent!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Allen West, Todd Akin, Joe Walsh, etc.

The Teabaggers are dropping like flies as America rejects their message of anti-Americanism and hatred.
