BOMBSHELL REPORT: IRS Targeted ‘Icky’ Conservative Groups

Top IRS officials specifically targeted tea party groups and misled the public about its secret political targeting program led by ex-official Lois Lerner, according to a bombshell new congressional report.

The Daily Caller has obtained an advance copy of a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee report set to be released Tuesday morning that definitively proves malicious intent by the IRS to improperly block conservative groups that an IRS adviser deemed “icky.” (That’s right. “Icky.”)

“The Committee has identified eight senior leaders who were in a position to prevent or to stop the IRS’s targeting of conservative applicants,” the Oversight report states. “Each of these leaders could have and should have done more to prevent the IRS’s targeting of conservative tax-exempt applicants.”

Here are six major takeaways from the report:

1. The IRS admitted that the front office was “spinning” about the targeting rumors as early as 2012, after IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman denied the tea party targeting to Congress.

“This is what the front office and [IRS Chief of Communications and Liaison] Frank [Keith] are spinning about now,” an IRS legislative affairs office employee wrote in an email to co-workers, referring to a news article on Shulman’s dishonest testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee, in which he denied rumors of improper targeting.

2. Then-IRS commissioner Steven T. Miller almost broke down and told the truth about the tea party targeting at a July 2012 hearing, but Lerner’s sidekick Nikole Flax told him not to.

“I am beginning to wonder whether I should do [Chairman] Boustany[’s hearing] and affirmatively use it to put a stake in politics and c4,” Miller wrote in an email to Flax.

Flax replied, “[I]f the hearing is as generic as I recall, seems like you are too senior.  Would be silly to think the c4 issues won’t come up – but I think Sarah [Hall Ingram] could handle it fine as well.”

Wait a minute. You mean this scandal extends further than just 2 rogue agents from Cincinnati?

Perhaps with all the scandals, the politicians are pushing so hard to stop Waterboarding. Is this the real reason? I'd like to see Cummings from Maryland put on the board I'd bet he would talk faster then a bird. A Jail Bird that is!

Cummings exposed! He is Democrat demagog and racist piece of shit!

Lock up all in the IRS.


I am "icky", hear me roar.  At least, we are of sound mind.  All of this reminds me of the elementary school yards.

this was an Obama moment when I believe it was bill o'reilly that asked the president about the irs scandal and Obama said that there was not a smidgen of corruption, this is the scandal where eric holder refused to investigate the irs...this is where the white house lied, and all of the employees were in cahoots, where information was buried, destroyed or just mot available....and to this day nobody is in jail...nobody has been fired.

Guv Brown—After Obama Amnesty—Able to Give YOUR Tax $$ Directly to Illegal Aliens

By Stephen Frank on Dec 22, 2014 09:16 pm
Should the Obama amnesty go through, illegal aliens will be forced to pay State and Federal taxes. If they were smart, this could be the biggest payday in their lives. Once on the IRS records as “taxpayers” they then become EITC (Earned Income Tax Credit) winners. Though filing Federal taxes, they will get lots of […]

More Dangerous? North Korea or a U.S. Court Withholding Water From People

By Stephen Frank on Dec 22, 2014 09:05 pm
Thanks to North Korea the world was saved from seeing a very silly movie (which in a free nation we all have the right to see or not see) and find out that Obama supporters are racists, money hungry and gossip like High School students. On the other hand, a U.S. court once again determined […]

Feds to Choose YOUR Health Care Plan, Doctors and Premiums—Without Consulting You

By Stephen Frank on Dec 22, 2014 09:02 pm
Today we have several articles, about different ways; government health care is killing families, the economy and harming the credibility of health care in America. This article notes that if you have been harmed physically and/or economically by ObamaCare—you need to opt out—though even if you do, government might not accept it. Then they will […]

Medicaid’s Access to Care Problems Persist and Will Get Worse Next Year

By Stephen Frank on Dec 22, 2014 08:56 pm
Now the Federal government is admitting that Medicaid is a disaster for patients, doctors and the health care system. Their own study shows that patients are being lied to about available doctors, hospitals and resources. They want the system to save money is not by better care, but by No care—ignoring the sick. We also […]

Obama/Democrats: Castro Brothers Great Leaders—Koch Brothers/Terrorists

By Stephen Frank on Dec 22, 2014 08:49 pm
This was written by an acquaintance of mine from Indianapolis. I met Fingers at a blogging conference on school choice in Milwaukee about a year ago. He is a free spirit with a great sense of humor. Sometimes humor tells more of the truth than a news broadcast. For instance, “I mean sure, the Castro […]

California Taxpayer Subsidizing Electric Charging Stations in San Diego for Rich Elitists

By Stephen Frank on Dec 22, 2014 08:45 pm
Here is how it works. You thought your tax dollars were going to Sacramento for the common good of all Californians. You did not know that the money was being spent to subsidize the rich and the elite, who want to buy expensive electric vehicles, but did not want to pay for the charging of […]

Ask your congressman and senators - If the IRS - the executive branch and the congress of the united states does not have to obey the law then why in the H_LL should we obey it? Also ask why if Al Sharppound can run up a debt of 4.5 million dollars with the IRS and nothing happens - why do I have to still pay my taxes? Ask them if the Dept. of Justice can give away guns to Mexican drug cartels - how is it they can violate the constitution and steal mine? We have created a lawless society and no one is accountable for his actions except for the white middle class worker. Tell congress the IRS has to go - vote on a flat tax and cut the IRS budget to zero. When the government is the instrument of tyranny - congress better stand with the people. Maybe we should start having tribunals in the states and start indicting congressmen and senators for treason and malfeasance in office. If sharppound and learned are not going to jail - if Gitmo detainees are let go to prey on americans & Baynor & Macdumbo are still allowed to lead us - then maybe it is time we marched on Washington and took it away from the criminals and traitors.

'Consequence equality' , would be better for America than' Income Equality! ' The damage done to a society that depends on "credit" and "informed decisions " is incalculable! The fabric of our nation is being rotted by these parasites! Prison is the a.answer.

Deputy Division Counsel Janine Cook replied, “[G]uess they are thinking they’ll have suspicions about reality but the paper/reps will pass muster.”

5. So the IRS reached out to outside advisers to help come up with ways to deny tax-exempt status to “icky” organizations.

“It appears that the org is funneling money to other orgs for political purposes,” a Cincinnati-based IRS agent working under Lois Lerner wrote to tax law specialist Hilary Goehausen in April 2013. ”However, I’m not sure we can deny them because, technically, I don’t know that I can deny them simply for donating to another 501(c)(4). . . .  Any thoughts or feedback would be greatly appreciated.”

“I think there may be a number of ways to deny them,” Goehausen replied. “Let me talk to Sharon [Light] tomorrow about it and get some ideas from her as well. . . .This sounds like a bad org. :/ . . .  This org gives me an icky feeling.”

6. A May 2011 email from a lawyer in the IRS chief counsel’s office made clear that the agency sought to use a new “gift tax” to target donors to nonprofit political groups.

The lawyer wrote that the “plan is to elevate the issue of asserting gift tax on donors to 501(c)(4) organizations to the Chief Counsel and the Commissioner.”





Rush Limbaugh Explains How Robert Mueller
Will Attempt To Financially Destroy President Trump

 Special Counsel Robert Mueller has crossed President Trump’s “red line” after issuing a subpoena for documents related to the Trump Organization’s business dealings with Russia.

New York Times reports:

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia, according to two people briefed on the matter. The order is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trump’s businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president. […] The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow. In 2015, a longtime business associate of Mr. Trump’s emailed Mr. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen at his Trump Organization account claiming he had ties to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and said that building a Trump Tower in Moscow would help Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh theorized on his program Friday that one of Mueller’s true objectives is to financially destroy President Trump.

Partial transcript via Breitbart News:

And these requests, the subpoena for documents from the Trump Organization, I ask you again, what has that to do with the campaign and with collusion and with the Russians? They’ve already been looking into Trump business in Russia with the Miss, what is it, USA, whatever his pageant is.

Do you all remember during the early days of the campaign there was news that Trump, in a tax return something like 20 years ago, took a $900 million deduction that was granted and survived an audit by the IRS? Now, I forget the details. It had to do with losses that he had incurred in that year in building things. It was around 900 or $920 million deduction. I’ll never forget when it was reported because most people will never come close to ever having that in a lifetime, and to have a guy personally write that much off?

Anyway, I think Mueller wants that $920 million back. I think Mueller wants to prove that that was a faulty deduction. I think that they want to go back, they want to get Trump’s tax returns because they want to nullify that $900 million deduction, and then they want to collect 20 years of interest and penalties and wipe Trump out.

In the meantime, President Trump’s lawyers are in the process of negotiating with special counsel Robert Mueller to bring the Russia probe to an end, reports Rebecca Ballhaus and Peter Nicholas of the Wall Street Journal.

Mueller’s tentacles continue to reach further and further.

CNN reported that investigators are attempting to determine whether former Blackwater chief Erik Prince misled the  House Intelligence Committee about a meeting he had in Seychelles in January of 2017.

Prince is accused of using the meeting as an opportunity to establish a secret back channel with Russia.

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge spoke with one of President Trump’s personal lawyers about the new subpoena request by Special Counsel Mueller.

According to Herridge, Trump’s lawyer was unaware of the subpoena and said it may be a ‘wrap up’ subpoena or ‘clean up’ subpoena which may signal the end of the investigation.
