First they tried to ignore us. Then they tried to discredit us. And then they tried to deny our legal rights.

One of the groups at the center of the IRS scandal has finally received its tax-exempt status after a three-year delay prompted by a politically driven move to block Tea Party and other conservative groups, many that slammed the president during his re-election, from winning the special status.

TheTeaParty.net , one of the nation's largest Tea Party groups, told Secrets that the long-sought declaration arrived Monday, well over three years after they applied for 501c(4) tax-exempt status in March of 2010, the start of the Tea Party movement. The notice came in a letter from the IRS.

This is the most corrupt Administration in the history of the country. And, the IRS, with 20,000 new Obama agents, are their enforcers!

The IRS is a criminal organization and should be shut down.

A cocktail of Thorazine and Haloperidol should do the tricl. Then it will make perfect sense.

I am you and you are me and we are they and so on and so on. Accusing a number of posters to be one in the same. It is merely a device, used by the troll mind (such as it is), to attempt to get someone to engage with he/she/it in order to attempt to further infuriate, shame, insult, degrade, etc. Apparently this provides short lived feelings of dominance, power, and probably, pleasure in the psyche of this creature that it cannot get anywhere else. This probably also accounts for all of the homoerotic references like ball sack, buggered, little bois, darker berries, etc.

The tea party is already irrelevant. Look at the approval ratings for the tea party - they are in the subbasement.

One has to ask why the Party in power, the Democrats, are so afraid of such a small minority with approval ratings in the sub basement?

The truth is that the Tea Party is stronger today than it was when they managed to take control of the House in 2010. It is only in your wet dreams that you think the Tea Party is losing popularity or power.

Careful now, that lump has feelings. Problem is, they're mostly evil feelings.

Read any of his posts for verification.

Leave it to the power(at any cost) hungry lefties to turn a 'victim' like this, into a victimizer.

People should be going to PRISON for this. Lois LERNER should be on the TOP of that list.

Thursday's hearing of the House Oversight And Government Reform Committee on the IRS’ alleged targeting of conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status.

Catherine Engelbrecht, founder of the King Street Patriots & Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio):

“Ms. Engelbrecht,” Jordan said,“in the first 20 years of business, did OSHA ever visit your place of business?”

“No sir,” she responded.

“Never once?”

“No sir.”

“After you filed the [tax-exempt application for King Street Patriots], OSHA visited then, right?”

“Yes sir.”

“In the first 20 years of business did the [Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives] ever come to your business?” Jordan continued.

“No sir.”

“And they came a couple times once you filed your application?”

“Yes sir.”
“And in your first 20 years of business, did the IRS ever audit you?”

“No sir.”

“But once you filed your application, they audited you?”

“Many times.”

“And in your first 20 years of business, did the FBI ever visit you?”

“No sir.”

“But once you filed your application, did they visit you?”

“Six times.”

Jordan made his final point:“Mr. Connolly(Rep. Gerry Connolly D-Va.) wants us to believes that’s all a COINCIDENCE.”

You're right the false lying teaparty for lying to the government for claiming to be a non-profit group when they are all political pacts funded by the Koch Bros. and other republican profit making liar's.

THEN

- 2 or more ATF visits
- SEVERAL IRS audits.
