Election-Year Stakes Overshadow Nuances of Libya Investigation
By DAVID D. KIRKPATRICK
Published: October 15, 2012
To Libyans who witnessed the assault and know the attackers, there is little doubt what occurred: a well-known group of local Islamist militants struck the United States Mission without any warning or protest, and they did it in retaliation for the video. That is what the fighters said at the time, speaking emotionally of their anger at the video without mentioning Al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden or the terrorist strikes of 11 years earlier. And it is an explanation that tracks with their history as members of a local militant group determined to protect Libya from Western influence.
United States intelligence agencies have reserved final judgment pending a full investigation, leaving open the possibility that anger at the video might have provided an opportunity for militants who already harbored anti-American feelings.

Filed the story on October 2010 then it's published on October 15, 2012?

Explain how you file a story on Benghazi which happened 9/11/2012 but somehow you claim the "story" was filed on October 2010 but not published until October 15, 2012.

"We" won't clean up anything! You spent most of the day and yesterday claiming the IRS did nothing wrong and the damn republicans were on a witch hunt. There is no "we" when including you and your progressive liberal loons. The ones who will clean this up with be those who are true Americans who love this country, all the true blue republicans, democrats and independents, that have had enough of the bullshit from this Administration's unbelievable lies and power grabs from our constitution and rights. This Administration has used every means legal and illegal to further it's progressive liberal agenda and justaliar you have been on the forefront pushing their lies and misrepresentations, every single poster on this thread if they were truthful would say you are a "hack" and no friend to the truth.
From what I'm hearing there is much more to be revealed on all the scandals that are hitting but everyone here should understand the IRS illegal activities have been going on for years so far it's traced back with documents to 2010 that I know of but that could mean this is the tip of the iceberg. If you remember the original news release said it was limited to Cincinnati office low level employees only but that only lasted a short time and we knew the illegal activity spread all across the U.S. with tax attorney's and organization freely sharing the documents with the American Public so the average American Voter could see first hand the gross abuse these organizations had suffered from the IRS - ALL CONSERVATIVE ORGANIZATIONS.
This is a clear abuse of power and clearly illegal.
Your dreaming...

You think you speak for the American people, you just are a wingnut.

You don't hold your party to any kind of standards at all. That's the thing about crying wolf. First it was the birth certificate and you wingnuts have never ever let up. People become immune to constant conspiracy theories.

The Benghazi theory was complete BS.

The AP story will be investigated. Doubtful that it will lead back to the President.

The IRS story...well that will be investigated too. But it will all go back to the Citizen's United. I think it is safe to say that the American people do not like Citizen's United. The Tea Party is not very popular and the rest of the money being spent to buy elections.

It will be doubtful that will lead back to the President either.

So if your dreaming of impeachment...dream on.

Republican's shot their wad with Clinton.

Because if it was so easy to get an impeachment, we could for sure have gotten Bush.

And Obama is not running again.

Your party is only good at trying to get Obama but lousy at running the country. The Deficit is going down and the stock market is going up. Austerity is shown to be unadulterated crap. The troops will be coming home from Afghanistan. And Obamacare will be covering a lot of uninsured people. Plus your only supporters are white people, and not all of the whites, especially women. The Hispanics, the largest growing group destined to be a majority in the next ten years, has learned to despise your party.

Well, it looks like their going to enlarge the investigation into the IRS and check all of the non-profit statuses.

Told ya..

IRS Sent Same Letter to Democrats That Fed Tea Party Row

The Internal Revenue Service, under pressure after admitting it targeted anti-tax Tea Party groups for scrutiny in recent years, also had its eye on at least three Democratic-leaning organizations seeking nonprofit status.

Tax agency officials told lawmakers in a briefing yesterday that 471 groups received additional scrutiny, a total that indicates a crackdown on politically active nonprofit groups that extends beyond the Tea Party outfits.

Broader Hearings

Some lawmakers on Capitol Hill and campaign finance watchdog groups are pressing to expand congressional hearings to encompass everything the IRS is doing concerning nonprofits, including whether such groups should be allowed to spend money on political efforts at all.

IRS Ends 2-Year Probe Of NAACP's Tax Status

By Darryl Fears
Washington Post Staff Writer

Friday, September 1, 2006

Nearly two years after a controversial decision to investigate the NAACP for criticizing President Bush during the 2004 presidential campaign, the Internal Revenue Service has ruled that the remarks did not violate the group's tax-exempt status.

In a letter released yesterday by the NAACP, the IRS said the group, the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization, "continued to qualify" as tax-exempt.

If the NAACP were stripped of the status, donors would not be allowed to claim contributions to the group on income tax returns.

This is what will hang the Tea Party:

Federal law requires tax-exempt nonprofit organizations to be politically nonpartisan.

WASHINGTON -- In the 27 months that the Internal Revenue Service put a hold on all Tea Party applications for non-profit status, it approved applications from similar liberal groups, a USA TODAY review of IRS data shows.

As applications from conservative groups sat in limbo, groups with obviously liberal names were approved in as little as nine months. With names including words like "Progress" or "Progressive," these groups applied for the same tax status and were engaged in the same kinds of activities as the conservative groups.

The controversial, 3-year-old strategy to manage the increasing number of political groups seeking tax-exempt status came under fire Tuesday. The agency's own inspector general blamed IRS leadership for "ineffective management."

The Justice Department wants to know if that was more than just mismanagement. Calling the IRS' actions "outrageous and unacceptable," Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that he has asked the FBI to investigate. "We're examining the facts to see if there were any criminal violations," he said.

It just keeps coming. Tell us again how Obama and his campaign weren't involved?

One of President Barack Obama's re-election campaign co-chairmen used a leaked document from the IRS to attack GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney during the 2012 election, according to the National Organization for Marriage (NOM).

NOM, a pro-traditional marriage organization, claims the IRS leaked their 2008 confidential financial documents to the rival Human Rights Campaign. Those NOM documents were published on the Huffington Post on March 30, 2012. At that time, Joe Solmonese, a left-wing activist and Huffington Post contributor, was the president of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). Solmonese was also a 2012 Obama campaign co-chairman.

Both the Huffington Post's Sam Stein and HRC described the leak as coming from a “whistleblower.” The Huffington Post used the document to write a story questioning former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney’s support for traditional marriage. The document showed Romney donated $10,000 to NOM. HRC went a step further than the Huffington Post in its criticism of Romney and accused him of using “racially divisive tactics” in a press release.

Solmonese, then still the HRC’s president, said in the release he felt Romney’s “funding of a hate-filled campaign designed to drive a wedge between Americans is beyond despicable.”

“Not only has Romney signed NOM’s radical marriage pledge, now we know he’s one of the donors that NOM has been so desperate to keep secret all these years,” Solmonese added.

Solmonese resigned his position at HRC the next day and took up a position as an Obama campaign co-chair. He had announced the then-pending resignation from HRC the previous autumn.

NOM announced Tuesday that it will sue the IRS for this alleged leak. Under immense political pressure, Attorney General Eric Holder launched a criminal investigation into the IRS's actions. Congress will conduct ts own investigation.

In early April 2012, NOM published documents which it said showed this leaked confidential information did not come from a “whistleblower” but “came directly from the Internal Revenue Service and was provided to NOM's political opponents, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC).”

NOM discovered that when HRC published its confidential financial documents, it failed to conceal the source of the documents.“After software removed the layers obscuring the document, it is shown that the document came from the Internal Revenue Service,” NOM asserted in its April 2012 release.

“The top of each page says,‘THIS IS A COPY OF A LIVE RETURN FROM SMIPS. OFFICIAL USE ONLY,’" the statement continues. "On each page of the return is stamped a document ID of ‘100560209.’ Only the IRS would have the Form 990 with ‘Official Use’ information."

That's rich...., True to Vote, Catherine Englebrecht, was a victim of discrimation by the IRS after applying for (501)C4 and (501)C3 status. The group received an unprecedented level of scrutiny. Exhaustive questioning beyond what is legally required then shortly after applying the Englebrecht's had surprise visits from the FBI, ATF (both Dept of Justice agencies)which asked for information on all people they had contact with, ATF audited their firearms business records, IRS was auditing business/personal taxes, and then guess who shows up unannounced? OSHA which opens an audit. A average citizen who has never had any issues paying correct taxes and following all regulations by state of federal agencies suddenly is investigated and audited by every federal agency, hardly coincidental.

This all began shortly after applying for (50)C4 and (501)C3 status with the IRS. I would encourage everyone to google True to Vote activities during the election process to see what activity they are associated.

Let's all remember Obama's half brother operated for 4 years without necessary legal status and somehow was APPROVED within a month,(after he finally applied)by the IRS and his application was retro-active.

AMAZINGLY BLATANT ABUSE, by the IRS. But this isn't limited to just the IRS since evidence is coming in for several different agencies are being used by this Administration to further progressive liberal agenda. Progressive Liberal entities which applied for the exact same status on average took 90 days for approval. Personal tax information was leaked to opposition entities a clear violation by the IRS. Did anyone wonder how Harry Reid somehow knew very personal details about Opposition Party candidate Mitt Romney? Maybe it's time to question under oath where Harry Reid got his information and who gave it to him.

Glad to see someone has really paid attention to how deep this goes. This is not just about a little extra scrutiny on tax exempt apps. Now it appears the EPA was doing the same thing.

‘VERY FRIGHTENING’: PROMINENT CATHOLIC PROF. CLAIMS IRS AUDITED HER AFTER SPEAKING OUT AGAINST OBAMA AND DEMANDED TO KNOW WHO WAS PAYING HER

>Noted professor and sociologist Dr. Anne Hendershott claims IRS may have targeted her with a 2010 audit

IRS demanded to know which groups paid her and “what their politics were”
Hendershott believes her articles critical of President Barack Obama’s policies and George Soros’ funding of liberal Catholic groups may have spawned the IRS audit

Audit was emotionally and financially expensive and scared the professor into silence

Obama to GOP: Put Up or Shut Up on DOJ Investigation

White House this morning asked Senator Schumer to reintroduce the media shield bill which died on Senate floor in 2010.

Legislation has been introduced before, and can be introduced again, that would restrict DOJ's ability to target the phone records of media organizations. In 2010, such legislation was introduced, and died when it was filibustered by Republicans in the Senate. More generally, media organizations have been lobbying for a federal shield law for decades, and Congress has been resolutely unwilling to pass one, even though nearly every state has a shield law of one sort or another.

Politically, Obama is basically daring Republicans to put their money where their mouths are. You want to make the DOJ leak investigation into an issue of executive overreach? Fine. Then rein it in. Pass a law making it clear what DOJ can and can't do in leak investigations.
