Despite all the assurances from liberals in the mainstream media, that the IRS abuse was not ordered by Obama to suppress his political opponents and that Lois Lerner isn’t stone-walling the Congressional investigation to protect her boss, Obama, there appears to be new evidence that the IRS is still being used by the Obama regime against its political opponents and to silence critics.
An article from The Washington Times reports: “The Internal Revenue Service has revoked the tax-exempt status of a conservative charity for making statements critical of Hillary Rodham Clinton and John Kerry, according to a USA Today report. The Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty, based in Manassas, Va., ‘has shown a pattern of deliberate and consistent intervention in political campaigns’ and made ‘repeated statements supporting or opposing various candidates by expressing its opinion of the respective candidate’s character and qualifications,’ according to a written determination released Friday by the IRS.”
And tax-exempt, left-wing organizations never do this? I bet I could find you a couple hundred Black churches where the pastor told his congregation to go out there and vote for Obama, but they’ll never lose their tax-exempt status.
The article notes “The IRS said the center acted as an ‘action organization’ by publishing alerts on its website for columns written by its president, former FBI agent Gary Aldrich, the Washington Free Beacon reported. The IRS pointed out a column that appeared to be published by Townhall on April 2, 2004, in which Mr. Aldrich wrote, ‘if John Kerry promises otherwise ill-informed swing-voters lower gas prices at the pump, more than a few greedy, registered ignoramuses will follow him anywhere,’ the Free Beacon reported.”
“Another article cited by the IRS was a 2005 piece titled ‘Stop Hillary Now!’ which rallied Clinton haters to inform voters of Hillary Clinton’s atrocious conduct.”
Aha! That makes a lot of sense. The Sea Hag has been Anointed for 2016, assuming Barry can be persuaded to leave office as he’s legally required to do.
The article continues “IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said in an interview with The Washington Post last week that the IRS and Treasury Department are likely to rewrite controversial draft guidelines to better define ‘candidate-related political activities.’”
In other words, anyone who criticizes a Democrat big shot loses his tax exempt status.
Lois Lerner told a congressional inquiry to go commit an unnatural act with themselves, and she walked out Scot free. No contempt charges, no nothing… courtesy of Eric Holder’s Justice Department. Since she was allowed to get away with that, the message is clear: the Obama regime can do what they want, to whomever they want, and however they want to do it. And nobody gets to so much as say “boo” to them.
