Imagine where we would be without the impartial and dedicated journalism that can be found at Townhall.  Serious statement here.  These dudes have literally stopped the Obama's Third Reich from emerging.

But I thought if you had nothing to hide, you shouldn't worry about an investigation?

It boils down to tax fraud. That's all that the IRS "scandal" is about. Did folks who were engaged in partisan politicking attempt to defraud the American people? That's the heart of this whole matter, and perhaps asking for a closer look at this horrendous over-reach--given that folks were granted tax free status despite some misgivings and questioning of their motives--is maybe not the best approach to it...

End of his term? Clearly you didn't see the special report proving he's going to suspend the Constitution, name himself Emperor-for-Life and use the NSA data combined with the DNA harvested from anyone who's handled a penny to set up the Mandatory Gay Marriages. The louder you complain the bigger the uggo you get assigned!

Didn't you read the article?  AIP makes a campaign ad criticizing Obama.  The Obama campaign attacks AIP, which already had 501(c)(4) status, and then, once Obama is President, the IRS illegally gives AIP's tax information to the FEC for investigation.  That's NOT about applying for tax-free status, and the article doesn't even mention applications.  Try being less of a Democrat tool.

If GWB had ordered the IRS to give MoveOn.org's tax information illegally to the FEC, and ordered the FEC to investigate MoveOn.org, it would have been the greatest abuse of power in American history.

Except that none of what you say is true. Much like in AGW threads! At least you're consistent. Hey, also, Bush DID investigate the NAACP because he didn't like what their president said about Bush.

I'm not sure that was inadvertent. In the long game, it might have been a ploy by the non-tea party R's to get the tea partiers both frothing mad (so they'd vote R) and defunded (so they can't win primaries).

From the linked story:  "How long can The White House and its allies continue to claim this is all just a big coincidence?"


With the help of the state-media (i.e. the royal stenographers), and the likes of Fark LiberalsTM, quite a while.  Of course, the IRS supplying congress with a 4-inch-thick stack of 100% redacted 'documents' (think of the ink cartridges!) is producing a lot of noxious smoke.  And where there's smoke, there's fire.

of course they have.  they are a CONservative publication.  their goal is to get the black guy out of the white house who keeps talking about the middle class, and get their blue blood aristocrat back in so they can continue getting their tax cuts for the rich and continue stealing from this Nation and its shrinking middle/working classes. they hate anyone who is not doing the bidding of the wealthiest 2% of Americans and big business.

pretty much.   and the two political parties serve only their Masters.  and their Masters are not the American People who voted for them.

ain't Freedom great!

There is nobody to blame but the people who continue to vote for them.

Democracy ensures that we get the government we deserve.




Democracy is a beautiful thing, except for that part about letting just any ol' person vote. - Jack Handey

I say it again, even though I know no one cares, but the tea party groups weren't avoiding paying taxes. Political groups are tax exempt. What they were doing was avoiding having to disclose their donors. Every time I read one of those posts, I hear future Biff say, "You sound like a damn fool when you say it wrong!"

there are plenty of crooked sorry democrats.   this is america, after all.  and no one loves money/wealth/stuff more than americans.

but...

there are more criminals in the GOP than the democrat party.   the lessor of two evils.

we need a 3rd party if there is any hope of getting our Democracy back.

Uhh. He cited one and I mentioned a couple others. And I could cite a few more such as Alan Grayson. My point still stands. Look no farther than the current fight over the new chair of the Federal Reserve.

Obama is fighting hard to get Larry Summers in, the guy who is a big-time Wall Street insider and an architect of our financial collapse. Elizabeth Warren alongside a few other people in Congress have sent him a letter telling him to not pick Summers, but they are the outliers like I said.

let's look at how the president has framed the irs scandal: first, it was an outrage and would not be tolerated (true). then it was rogue agents at the cincinnati office acting on their own (false). then it was a republican manager being solely responsible for the targeting (false). then it was progressives being targeted with the same impunity as conservatives (false). now it's a "phony" scandal that should be ignored (wishful thinking). the narrative is falling apart.

the obama defense squad can keep denying it, but as more information is uncovered, the situation is getting worse for the administration. irs chief counsel william wilkins' office has been implicated. that's a fairly big development and it's going to lead to further inquiries. drip, drip, drip...

No, it was always all of those things. Information trickles, it does not flow. The story never changed, just the available information. And at this point, given the information amassed, it turns out it IS a phony scandal that just needs to go away. We saw the same thing with Benghazi, but you people learn nothing.

The healthcare bill basically sucks. Sure it is better than where we were before, but that isn't saying much. Obama took single-payer off the table before he started to appease the lobbyists.

As far as financial regulation goes, sorry but Obama is totally in the back pocket of Wall Street. The commission is a joke and all the major players in the financial meltdown have walked scot-free while there has been no real reform of the laws governing our financial system.

wesmon: cameroncrazy1984: wesmon: Umeraken Ideut: cameroncrazy1984: wesmon: Yeah. You can cite outliers all you want. Plenty more, like Russ Feingold in his day our Kucinich. But that isn't what the heart of the Dem party is. They are slaves to Wall Street and Big Business just like the Repubs.

Who is, precisely?

I keep asking, he won't tell.

Kinda funny how I started with the president and you conveniently ignored it.

You mean the President who signed and campaigned for healthcare reform which sees insurance premiums reduced? That President? The one who signed financial regulation that contained the setup for the consumer watchdog commission? That President? Are you kidding me?


The healthcare bill basically sucks. Sure it is better than where we were before, but that isn't saying much. Obama took single-payer off the table before he started to appease the lobbyists.

As far as financial regulation goes, sorry but Obama is totally in the back pocket of Wall Street. The commission is a joke and all the major players in the financial meltdown have walked scot-free while there has been no real reform of the laws governing our financial system.


I suppose you're of the opinion that the GOP would have done better on these issues.

maybe you progressive rocket scientists can answer this question... why did president obama express outrage and condemn the actions of the irs when the ig report was first released? and what has changed that he's now calling it a phony scandal?

The information that we learned concerning A) What the committee actually asked of the IG (Issa only asked them to report on conservative groups) and B) what the groups were actually doing.

It's strange how opinions can change when more information is revealed, isn't it?

there's no new information to absolve the irs of improper behavior.

here's president obama on the irs scandal when it was first reported: "And this is pretty straightforward. If in fact IRS personnel engaged in the kind of practices that have been reported on, and were intentionally targeting conservative groups, then that's outrageous. And there's no place for it."

the ig report proves the irs did in fact do the things that were being alleged. so according to the president, "that's outrageous and there's no place for it"

here's jay carney speaking 4 days ago: "And when it comes to the IRS, as I said the other morning, the President made very clear that he will -- that he wants the new leadership there to take action to correct improper conduct, and that is happening and he expects results."

so again, president thinks irs conduct was improper. he thought so when it was first reported and according to carney, he thinks the same thing right now. so again, what new information? why are people like yourself still pretending that the irs was only doing its job? and more impprtantly, why is the administration now trying to push a narrative that it's a "phony scandal" when they admit in the same breath that the irs behaved improperly by targeting conservatives?

BAD TROLL, BAD!


Wait.  You do realize that you selectively ignored about 20 perfectly cromulent examples of big business that NW delineated regarding "who is big business and supports Democrats?", and you've done nothing since but post crap, pure crap, and crap that's unadulteratedly lame and ignorant.  You realize that, correct?  Having written that to you, let me get this thread back on track.  Odds are very good that the Obama reelection campaign, did, in fact, abuse the power of the IRS to harass conservative campaigning and conservative focus on all issues conservative.  You realize that too, correct?  Now, having had the 2000 and 2004 elections go the way they did, and because of the sad state of "politics" in this country today, do you actually find this surprising?

Tman144: I say it again, even though I know no one cares, but the tea party groups weren't avoiding paying taxes. Political groups are tax exempt. What they were doing was avoiding having to disclose their donors. Every time I read one of those posts, I hear future Biff say, "You sound like a damn fool when you say it wrong!"


You can say that all you'd like, but it doesn't make it true. The issue is their filing under a tax exempt status--oddly enough, political parties ARE subject to taxes. The particular status that they filed for was for non-political activities, and likewise, such non-profits ARE subject to taxes on unrelated business income. That they REALLY don't want to disclose who their donors are IS a big issue, but it is likewise that their entire reason for filing for their particular status was essentially based on fraud, and essentially using their organizations as a conduit for cash for various folks, and in a fairly transparent fashion, while likewise engaging in activities outside the scope of their claimed purpose.

It was a tax dodge, and a way to fund folks for offices, or pay back "consultants" and others for a job well done, and the louder and longer they bray about how terrible it was to be targeted, the greater the chance of the jig being up, and their "clever" plan will be ruined. Or Roo-iiined, if you'd rather.

"take action to correct improper conduct"

Abortion is big business?  OK, let's accept that arguendo.  How do you think that comes about?

(1) Abstinence-only edumakashun and defunding Planned Parenthood
lead to
(2) more young women getting pregnant with babies they can't afford
so they either
(3) seek an abortion,
or
(4) go on public assistance.

If the Theocrat Republican Party would back off on (1), there'd be a lot less of (3) and (4).  But they'd have to tell Pat Robertson to go to hell.  The Theocrat Party is not willing to tell Pat Robertson to go to hell.

You're doing it too.  NW lined up about 20 excellent examples of other Democrat big business strongholds.  Abortion is what it is.  You just go ahead and keep trying to pretend that you're "winning" this losing effort of yours by diverting NW's attention from the fact that he/she lined up an excellent argument point that showed huge big business interests that are Democrat..  Go right ahead.  You get to do that.  But you are only fooling yourself.  This thread is about the IRS, the FEC, and the very real potential that the Obama reelection campaign grossly abused the powers of those institutions in a partisan regime manner.  But you do realize this, correct?  I'm sure that you can wait for one of the endless abortion issue threads to talk at length about abortion and your liberally slanted views on it, right?

2013-08-04 07:18:47 PM  

cameroncrazy1984:

GeneralJim: The Obama campaign attacks AIP, which already had 501(c)(4) status, and then, once Obama is President, the IRS illegally gives AIP's tax information to the FEC for investigation.  That's NOT about applying for tax-free status, and the article doesn't even mention applications.  Try being less of a Democrat tool.

If GWB had ordered the IRS to give MoveOn.org's tax information illegally to the FEC, and ordered the FEC to investigate MoveOn.org, it would have been the greatest abuse of power in American history.


Except that none of what you say is true. Much like in AGW threads! At least you're consistent. Hey, also, Bush DID investigate the NAACP because he didn't like what their president said about Bush.
So "nuh-uh" is your argument?  You forgot "neener, neener."  Whatever.  If your bizarre claim about GWB having IRS records for the NAACP sent to an investigative agency, bring the information -- but wait for it to dry, first.  TFA is all about Obama's dorking with the AIP illegally.

And, before you start your "It's not from my preferred echo chamber" dance, Townhall is simply reporting what the Wall Street Journal reported.  It IS just like in AGW threads -- I provide what NASA said in the 1970s, and what they say now, and claim (which is obviously true) that they are talking about the past differently now than they were in the 1970s.  You say "nuh-uh," and then, in future threads, that my points were "debunked."  I think you need to look up the definition of "debunk" there, Sparky.

Hey, the evidence doesn't matter -- if it is NOT reported in right-wing media, the left-wing MSM won't report it, so it never happened.  And, if the right-wing media DOES report it, apparently that makes the AP or WSJ story false.  Ta-dah!   The Media Aristocrats!

And at this point, given the information amassed, it turns out it IS a phony scandal that just needs to go away. We saw the same thing with Benghazi, but you people learn nothing
Just keep yelling "phony scandal about both the IRS and Benghazi... and whatever else turns up."  That'll work.   And....

And, it never happened, huh?  Well then, what was Official Liar Carney talking about when he said "And when it comes to the IRS, as I said the other morning, the President made very clear that he will -- that he wants the new leadership there to take action to correct improper conduct, and that is happening and he expects results."I mean, the President is replacing IRS leadership over it, and the "improper conduct" will be corrected...  and YOU are denying it happened?  When the President is admitting that your talking points are crap, you REALLY need to update them.  Or are you this delusional on your own?
