Useless because a public petition does not fall anywhere within the legal due process for presidential impeachment.

A college professor called into one of the talk shows and had an interesting strategy for the House. he said that the Congress can file Articles of Impeachment against ANY government employee. Therefore Congress would be well within their Constitutional powers to start impeaching any iris employees involved in going after conservative group if Barry and his administration keep "stonewalling" (pun intended).

They went after liberal groups more than conservative groups.
Conservative groups were always pushing the envelope to get away with crap.....typical GOP underhanded traits!

Your own article calls itself BS:

"Sullivan's analysis, however, does not illuminate much about the targeting scandal. It shows that conservative groups were reviewed and approved more often than liberal groups, but it does not state the total number of conservative and liberal groups that applied for tax exempt status during that period. The analysis also does not identify the ideological breakdown of groups that applied and have not been approved, since the IRS is prevented by law from providing the names of groups still being processed by the service. All of these caveats are noted in the analysis."

Now, for some cold, hard truth:

Two Internal Revenue Service employees in the agency's Cincinnati office told congressional investigators that IRS officials in Washington helped direct the probe of tea-party groups that began in 2010.

Transcripts of the interviews, viewed Wednesday by The Wall Street Journal, appear to contradict earlier statements by top IRS officials, who have blamed lower-level workers in Cincinnati.

Elizabeth Hofacre said her office in Cincinnati sought help from IRS officials in the Washington unit that oversees tax-exempt organizations after she started getting the tea party cases in April 2010. Ms. Hofacre said Carter Hull, an IRS lawyer in Washington, closely oversaw her work and suggested some of the questions asked applicants.

"I was essentially a front person, because I had no autonomy or no authority to act on [applications] without Carter Hull's influence or input," she said, according to the transcripts.

What baloney.

There ain't going to be no impeachment, but there will be lots of theatrics leading up to, essentially, nothing.

I say "LETS GET IT ON"! Maybe by shedding some light on this administration might just turn up enough to get the job done. How treasonous to even allow the IRS to harass any American. These are the same people that are going to enforce Obama Cares. Lets get this thing underway before they start targeting others. You damn well know this isn't right & Obama isn't going to do anything about it because he is involved!

Really?

Thursday, May 26, 2011

Washington, D.C.– Speaking on the floor of the U.S Senate during the truncated debate on the reauthorization of the PATRIOT ACT for another four years, U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.)– a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence -- warned his colleagues that a vote to extend the bill without amendments that would ban any Administration’s ability to keep internal interpretations of the Patriot Act classified will eventually cause public outrage.

Known as Secret Law, the official interpretation of the Patriot Act could dramatically differ from what the public believes the law allows. This could create severe violations of the Constitutional and Civil Rights of American Citizens.

Statement of Senator Wyden

On Patriot Act Reauthorization

May 26, 2011



M. President, the United States Senate is now preparing to pass another four-year extension of the USA Patriot Act. I have served on the Intelligence Committee for a decade, and I want to deliver a warning this afternoon: when the American people find out how their government has secretly interpreted the Patriot Act, they will be stunned and they will be angry. And they will be asking senators,“Did you know what this law actually permits?”“Why didn’t you know before you voted on it?” The fact is that anyone can read the plain text of the Patriot Act, and yet many members of Congress have no idea how the law is being secretly interpreted by the executive branch, because that interpretation is classified.

It’s almost as if there are two Patriot Acts, and many members of Congress haven’t even read the one that matters. Our constituents, of course, are totally in the dark. Members of the public have no access to the executive branch’s secret legal interpretations, so they have no idea what their government thinks this law means.

That was TWO YEARS AGO. He was trying to warn us.
