Obama threatens veto on bill to delay IRS from muzzling his political opponents


It is going to be hardball from here on in while Obama sits on his throne at the WH. Will we ever get him out? Time will tell. But Chicago politics are going to be on steroids for the upcoming fall election. Buckle up folks, we are in for one heck of a ride.

“Despite the administration’s insistence that ‘there’s nothing to see here,’ the committee has found evidence demonstrating that right-leaning groups were targeted to an extent far beyond what was reported by the Inspector General.

Weasel Zippers brings us the news:

BREAKING: Obama Threatens To Veto Bill Delaying IRS From Muzzling His Political Opponents…

Some background on the bill:

Congressman Dave Camp, R-Midland, has introduced legislation prohibiting for one year the Department of the Treasury and Internal Revenue Service from issuing or finalizing proposed 501(c)(4) regulations issued last November.

Treasury’s proposed rules would significantly alter 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organization activities and restrict First Amendment rights. Other tax-exempt organizations, including labor unions, would not be subject to the same rules. A letter recently signed by more than 50 conservative and free market groups expressed similar concerns and called on Congress to block the proposed regulations. Camp, who has led the House Ways and Means Committee investigation into the IRS’s abuse of conservative groups, released the following statement:

“Despite the administration’s insistence that ‘there’s nothing to see here,’ the committee has found evidence demonstrating that right-leaning groups were targeted to an extent far beyond what was reported by the Inspector General. Our investigation is still ongoing and the committee has not received all the requested documents. It is premature to publish new rules before getting all of the facts. The Administration’s proposed rules openly target groups that are exercising their First Amendment rights. We cannot allow these draft regulations to go into effect. Congress must make sure every American’s right to participate and engage in civic debate is protected, and this legislation will provide some much-needed assurance that IRS targeting and surveillance will not continue.

“Additionally, I am disappointed by reports that the Department of Justice had decided – without conducting a serious investigation – that it will not to pursue criminal charges in the IRS’s intentional targeting of conservative groups. I have long said that we will follow the facts of this case wherever the facts lead us – and this case is far from closed.”

    When are the Republicans going to put on their man-pants and cut off the funding to the IRS? Yes, that is a rhetorical question. They are cowards with very few exceptions.

    Flip side of that coin: IRS is NOT a government agency, they only perform a task(s) authorized by, the US Treasury Department. IRS is OWNED by the Federal Reserve Bank, which, is OWNED by IMF. If IRS pushes candidates, and if those candidates are elected, the new president CAN terminate the services of the IRS and US Treasury goes back to providing the task(s), or establish a different means of taxation. Obama is acting like a COWARD by having IRS do his temper tantrum bidding. Let’s see if there will be payback in 2016 if, a candidate targeted, becomes president.
