Democrats Pull Out the Stops on Weaponized IRS

Not only are Democrats doubling down on their use of the IRS as a political weapon, they aren’t even bothering to try to make it look good by scapegoating a few token left-wing outfits. An astonishingly arrogant 100% of 501(c)(4) groups targeted for audit are conservative, according to House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI):

“We now know that the IRS targeted not only right-leaning applicants, but also right-leaning groups that were already operating as 501(c)(4)s,” Mr. Camp said in a statement. “At Washington, DC’s direction, dozens of groups operating as 501(c)(4)s were flagged for IRS surveillance, including monitoring of the groups’ activities, websites and any other publicly available information. Of these groups, 83% were right-leaning. And of the groups the IRS selected for audit, 100% were right-leaning.”

Mr. Camp spoke at a meeting where the committee was expected to vote to delay implementation of Obama administration rules that GOP lawmakers say would unfairly restrict political activity by conservative groups. The Democratic-run Senate appears unlikely to go along.

But Senate Dems will go along eagerly with Obama’s use of the IRS to shatter the opposition’s kneecaps:

Senate Democrats facing tough elections this year want the Internal Revenue Service to play a more aggressive role in regulating outside groups expected to spend millions of dollars on their races.

For example,

Sen. Mark Pryor (Ark.), the most vulnerable Democratic incumbent, said the IRS has jurisdiction over 501(c)(4) groups, as well as charities, which fall under section 501(c)(3) of the tax code and sometimes engage in quasi-political activity.

Dems are eager for the IRS to take out Americans for Prosperity. By a remarkable coincidence,

This month, Americans for Prosperity launched a three-week advertising campaign targeting Pryor.

Guess who else is eager to use the IRS to silence opponents?

Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the Senate Democrats’ chief political strategist, called for the IRS to curb political spending by outside groups during a major speech on how to blunt the impact of conservative donors such as the Koch brothers.

“The Tea Party elites gained extraordinary influence by being able to funnel millions of dollars into campaigns with ads that distort the truth and attack government,” he said in remarks at the Center for American Progress Action Fund.

“There are many things that can be done administratively by the IRS and other government agencies — we must redouble those efforts immediately,” he added.

The power to tax is the power to silence.

    Then the solution is obvious: Make up a phony name and mission. Create your non-profit to look like a Democrat bleeding-heart organization.

    Instead of proudly calling yourself a “Tea Party” organization, or one that will promote “conservative values”, name your organization something like “Save the Transgendered Owls”, whose focus is to “educate and advocate”. Then do your conservative actions under that guise.

    And don’t worry about lying to the IRS. Why? Because it’s filled with Democrats, and Democrats are used to being lied to. In fact, they expect it. After all….Hussein told them that whopper about “keep your health care plan”, and not a single Democrat was outraged.

    So come up with a creative name and “mission” and you’ll never have to worry about an IRS audit.

    Now we know why Hussein and the Democrats are struggling to give illegals amnesty: Millions of penniless Hispanics signed up for Obamacare means Democrats can raise taxes and/or take your 401(k) in order to “pay” for it.

    “California is crucial to the success of President Obama’s health care overhaul. Here, that success cannot come without enrolling Latinos, who make up more than half of the state’s uninsured.”

    “Marisa Nuñez discovered she would not be eligible to purchase insurance through Covered California, because she immigrated here illegally. “There is nowhere I can go for help for me, which is scary,” Ms. Nuñez said. ”

    There you go, folks. The future of our country. Illegals getting free health care for all their bambinos while YOU struggle at your job everyday to pay for them.

    The Second American Revolution can’t come soon enough for me.

    false application…interesting. How about 20 of them, in pairs. Each pair, exactly the same, except for the title. One on each pairs gets a title with tea party key words, the other with progressive key words. An actual experiment to see which sets is more likely to be selected for further scrutiny. Of course, while such things are being done to corporations and small businesses (especially physician offices) regularly, my guess is one might get prosecuted for filing a bogus application with the IRS. Second issue, actually scientific evidence of the type the experiment would produce would be summarily ignored by the left. It’s not as if the facts are unclear even now.

  6. Mark Johnson says:

    The left is scared. Their desperate tactics of intimidation, their attempts to twist the truth in what is obvious, and the blasting of their lies in high volume with their complicit media partners are proof of this. They are in their death throes. They are not dead yet, but this can’t and won’t last. History shows that a free people can only take so much bullsh*t before the bullsh*tters are tossed on their ear. We are close, be patient and keep vigilant and informed.

    “The marketplace of ideas”? WHAT ideas? Are you talking about the 19th century idea of total government control (Communism)? That has FAILED everywhere and every time it’s been tried. All you idiots can do is say “THIS time it’ll work!” yet you still promote the SAME CRAP. Millions have died for communism and many of you fools are saying that communism’s enemies should be put to death.

    You assholes have made America socialist over that past several decades and things have gotten worse. All you can do is demand MORE socialism as if that will fix things, even though it’s what wrecked civilization in the first place.

    YOU are an IDIOT!

    Schumer is so blinded by his out of control liberal hypocrisy that it never occurs to him the evil he is promoting. Meanwhile, ACORN has shed its skin again and is operating with impunity under dozens of different names, completely unmolested by the IRS.
