More from the Gestapo

Larry Conners, a veteran local news anchor at KMOV Channel 4 in St. Louis, says that the Internal Revenue Service has been targeting him since an April 2012 interview he conducted with President Obama -- a fact that he dismissed as coincidence until the recent reports about the IRS targeting conservative groups.

And more from the Gestapo

The same Internal Revenue Service office that singled out Tea Party groups for extra scrutiny also challenged Israel-related organizations, at least one of which filed suit over the agency’s handling of its application for tax-exempt status.

A leader of one of the organizations involved, Lori Lowenthal Marcus of Z Street, said Monday that she was convinced the added attention her group got was no accident.

Just for good measure:

The Justice Department secretly obtained two months of telephone records of reporters and editors for The Associated Press in what the news cooperative's top executive called a "massive and unprecedented intrusion" into how news organizations gather the news.

The Gestapo at work:
The liberal (progressive) investigative journalism group ProPublica says the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) office that targeted and harassed conservative tax-exempt groups during the 2012 election cycle gave the progressive group nine confidential applications of conservative groups whose tax-exempt status was pending.
It's about time some attention has been brought to this subject. This has been going on for a long time and as far as I have suspected it has been going on with every administration since Reagan and probably way before that. I have known many business owners both conservative and liberal in many states for a long time and for decades there has been way to many coincidences, I knew deep down this was going on. No party should have the ability to manipulate the system like this, it's a shame that small time nobody government employs have allowed this to go on for so long. If you work for the government and you know of any gross malfeasance going on it is your duty to bring this into the light of the American people or your just as bad as the ones committing it. Our country will never have a chance to make a comeback if people keep turning a blind eye to what is going on, imagine how many low level government employs have critical information that the people need to know so these puzzles can be accurately put together.

A question: did the IRS deny these organizations tax exempt status? Or did they just single them out to examine whether or not their tax exempt status was valid?

During the Bush administration, private auditing companies were found to be auditing low income filers at an exponentially higher rate than high income filers. This didn't necessarily mean they convicted more low income filers of tax fraud, it just meant they focused on finding the low income tax evaders rather than finding the much higher income tax evaders.

Just curious, if there is a leak in Washington that is giving out confidential information to the press that could thwart the efforts to prevent a terror attack, do you not think it is in the best interest to find out where that leak is?

If you Posters won't Post a Link to the Report that you're supposedly quoting from, then as far as I'm concerned, everything you're saying is just BS Propaganda.

I subscribe to the ProPublica News Link and I haven't seen the Report that you're talking about. Therefore, I wonder if it even exists!

And I am NOT going to go chasing after ever piece of BS that you Tea Baggers get from your Conservative Propaganda Websites and Fox Fake News, as well as Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Alec Jones because 99% of it is just sensationalistic Garbage and everybody knows it, but YOU!
So, my conclusion is...if there's no Link posted to back it up , consider it a LIE!

YES!

100% of those with 'Tea Party' in their name were audited by the IRS.

Some have been waiting 2 YEARS to even HEAR whether or not they are or are not considered tax exempt.

I have a question of my own.

Just what part of the 1st Amendment is OK to disregard? A FREE PRESS was important to our Founders - and even more important today.

Despite the fact that most of the press is liberal - IF a people cannot have a free press, just WHAT freedom is there?

This here issue should send cold chills down the spines of every liberal out there. If this disregard for the Constitution can occur today under Obama...just how would you feel if it occurs under say...somebody like G.W.?

Well, what do they expect when they want to abolish government and taxes? I am not saying it was right, but I would be more curious about someone who resents taxation and really wants government to not exist and at the same time applying for tax exemption. DUH?

Oh sure.If the posters don't put up a link to your very own special links that give you the side of the story you want to hear then it's garbage.
Are you the Commander and Chief of where all Americans must get their news? Because that's basically what you always come up with.
What you don't want to hear is a lie or where it was gotten from is bogus.
And if your special places don't have that news then it must not exist.
Do you know how much this sounds like a Dictatorship?

You may be right, and it also may be we the people who have turned this "FREE PRESS" into the vultures they have become because we demand to know everything even before the full truth is known even if it endangers our military or our citizens. Wonder how much a Washington mole gets for that kind of intel to the "FREE" press these days? Sad really...

5 YEARS of blaming Bush.

How about getting with the times. Bush is not president. This discussion is about how OBAMA's IRS went after everyone politically opposed to him - and YES, despite what he said, the IRS IS part of the EXECUTIVE branch of government...

Is it not supremely interesting that Obama is NEVER informed about what is going on??? Solyndra, Fast & Furious, Benghazi, IRS, and tapping the press....

If he doesn't know what's going on, he's incompetent. If he does, he is being treasonous - and should be impeached.

Plus, unlike Slick Willie...there is NO question of just what IS...is.

DUH.

It is the federal government coming after people who do not agree with the CURRENT party in the White House. Would you be so dismissive if G.W. did such?

The VERY thing that liberals such as yourself bitched about Bush might do...Obama HAS DONE.

DUH.

You think your posts here are 'free'...and that you making them are really anonymous? WHO KNOWS if everything you have ever posted on any and every internet forum has not been read by the gov't and then placed into a special little file for further use.

What is sad - is that not only do we the people pay for it, we have grown to accept it. Freedom dies when a people do that.

Well, he still has time to start 2 new wars, give away billions to nobid military contractors, exposé CIA operatives out of revenge, ignore emails alerting him to foreign nationals taking flight lessons resulting in 2000+ citizens being murdered. Oh and by the way Bush did target his enemies I much the same way but without the same amount of reasonable cause.
