Proof that Lois Lerner and DOJ Targeted Tea Party Groups

Lois LernerIf you needed proof that former IRS Commissioner Lois Lerner conspired with the Department of Justice to target (and look into criminal prosecution of) Tea Party groups, now you’ve got it. A recent FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request by Judicial Watch revealed damning evidence that the IRS and DOJ looked to damage and prosecute political enemies of President Obama.

These newly released IRS documents appear to be the “smoking gun” that prove the allegations against Ms. Lerner, and show internal communications between Lerner and Nicole Flax, then-Chief of Staff to then-Acting IRS Commissioner Steven T. Miller. They discussed plans to work with the DOJ to prosecute non-profit groups that supposedly “lied” about political activities.

Here are excerpts of an e-mail from Lerner to Flax:

I got a call today from Richard Pilger Director Elections Crimes Branch at DOJ … He wanted to know who at IRS the DOJ folk s (sic) could talk to about Sen. Whitehouse idea at the hearing that DOJ could piece together false statement cases about applicants who “lied” on their 1024s – saying they weren’t planning on doing political activity, and then turning around and making large visible political expenditures.

DOJ is feeling like it needs to respond, but want to talk to the right folks at IRS to see whether there are impediments from our side and what, if any damage this might do to IRS programs.

On May 10, 2013, Lerner tried to pin the blame for targeting Tea Party groups on “low-level employees” in a speech to the American Bar Association.

However, a May 15 e-mail exchange between aide Nancy Marks and Lerner proved this alibi false. Ms. Marks specifically mentioned “Tea Party Organizations,” the “Tea Party movement,” and “Tea Party Patriots” as organizations targeted by the IRS.

The Judicial Watch revelation confirms a May 14, 2013 Treasury Inspector General report which initially revealed that inappropriate criteria were used to identify tax-exempt applications for review.

    Again, ARREST HER NOW !!! Then subpoena Eric Holder, as a witness, Removing him from participation, or meddling in her testimony. Then file suit on him.

      That is a superb idea but, do you really think Congress has the courage to stand tall for our country, and go after these Criminals, including the WH?
      Based on the Bengazhi Massacre experience, so far, I don’t think so! Never had, and never will…

        I believe that is Semper Fidelis! Typo right? I do em also I call them damnit man errors when I am not able to go back and fixem!
        At this junctor of the new and revised Gowdy led Benghazi actions I must disagree with you but we shall see! I feels that the impending upcoming elections are forcing them to do their level best but they need our voting support in primarys and general elections to get full Control of the Senate and to maintain control and improve on by adding good conservatives to the house!
        Never say die until the fat lady sings my neighbor continue the fight or you will be defeated as we were in 2012 elections when false reports of media discouraged a very large number of independent and conservative voters from braving the lines and elements to vote! Their own laxadazical attitudes helped to put obama back in office along with the illegal voting element that was also present!
        Keep fighting “Give me liberty or give me death”!

        • Very well said my friend. We all have to get out and vote in November if this madness is ever going to end. It does no good to sit home and pout.

            Yes sir Rick you are spot on and right on target I am with you all the way on that!

          • ken29 says:

            @Rick: November for sure, but right now we need to get people out in the Primaries. Stir up interest and perhaps a seed of optimism that we can make our voices heard in November. We had very weak turnout in Indiana yesterday. Not a good sign. I’ve posted the following quote before: “If you are a part of a society that votes, then do so. There may be no candidates and no measures you want to vote for … But there are certain to be ones you want to vote against. By this rule you will rarely go wrong. If this is too blind for your taste, consult some well-meaning fool (there is always one around), ask his advice, then vote the other way. This enables you to be a good citizen (if such is your wish) without spending the enormous amount of time that truly intelligent exercise of the franchise requires. (Robert Heinlein)”

          • Seldena says:

            Before I voted in our primaries in GA on July 22, I researched every Republican candidate, their record, their votes and what hey supported or did not support. Every voter needs to do this. It really helps. I just want all Republicans to vote in NOV.!!

My deepest apologies friend I am man enough to acknowledge my errors! Again I am Sorry and apparently dumb as a box of rocks! Right now I feel like a class A1Jackass! Sorry Hangman!!!!

      • Drew Page says:

        I think there are a few Republicans left in Congress that are quite willing to pursue the truth of Fast & Furious, IRS targeting and Benghazi. They have been up against a lying administration and a Justice department dedicated to keeping the truth from the american people. They have dragged their feet when it came to producing requested documents and stonewalled investigators all the while saying they were doing their best to comply. B.S.

        The heads of the IRS and DOJ have supplied hundreds of thousands of pages of documents, none of which included the information requested. They tried to bury investigators under an avalanche of paper, which was either irrelevant to the investigation or so heavily redacted that any meaningful information was obliterated. Then the administration and their supporters claim “We have provided investigators hundreds of thousands of pages of documents and the investigations have dragged on for months and they have found nothing.”

        This is how our “Justice” Department operates under the “most transparent administration ever”. As far as I am concerned, Eric Holder is an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Fast & Furious and IRS scandals. But how does one indict the Attorney General?

        • taldock says:

          Don’t forget that establishment republicans hate the Tea Party just as much as the democrats.
          They are willing participants in the plot against the Tea Party.

          • Drew Page says:

            For the life of me I can’t understand this. If it weren’t for the Tea Party, the Republicans wouldn’t have taken control of the House in 2010 and the ‘establishment’ Republicans would have had to deal with a total Democrat control of both Houses of Congress and the White House. While there may be a few far right conservatives in the Tea Party, they certainly don’t speak for all Tea Party supporters. The vast majority of Tea Party supporters are main stream Americans who want to see lower taxes, less wasteful government spending, a flourishing economy with plenty of good job opportunities and less government intrusion into their daily lives.

          • jreb57 says:

            Everyone who wants to preserve our country as a constitutional republic of limited and enumerated powers had better hope that Republicans or people who will vote against what is presently passing for governmental authority will gain control of the Senate this election. That means we will have to vote against the Democrat and for whoever is running against him. Is that dangerous? Yes, but less dangerous than continuing in our present direction.

          • Drew Page says:

            I agree. The most important thing the Republicans must do to gain control of the senate and House is to stop the internal bickering and name calling. Many of us may disagree with McConnell, Boehner, McCain, Graham, Rubio, Christie and/or Jeb Bush, but we aren’t going to get anywhere calling them “RINOs” or other demeaning names. We aren’t going to get anywhere with “establishment” Republicans calling Tea Party supporters “right wing-nuts” and “wacko birds”. And we most definitely will not be going anywhere but to defeat if any Republican decides to stay home and not vote because his or her favorite candidate did not win the primary. We need party unity going into the November elections and we need to have every American voter who wants to preserve our constitutional republic of limited and enumerated powers to get to the polls and support the Republican candidates.

          • Seldena says:

            yes, and I simply do not understand this at all.I am a Tea Partier and I would hope that the GOP would want the same things the TEA PARTY wants.The only answer I have is that the TP think some have been in office TOO LONG and we need new reps in Congress that are wanting to do the will of the people and not the lobbyists!

    And she is not behind bars yet I will say one has done their job if she gets jail time.including Obama and Holder . and barred from ever working again for the government .

  5. Michael Turner-sfs says:

    With the incredible number of people posting on Tea Party sites demanding the trial and execution of the president for treason, and calling for armed insurrection against the duly elected government of the United States of America, I’m not at all surprised the Tea Party and related groups are being investigated. I’m sure some members really and genuinely are just concerned about the size of government and their tax burden; but there are far too many whack jobs nudging the Tea Party perilously close to John Birch Society, KKK and Aryan Nation territory. They need to be investigated.

    • dskancer19 says:

      I do believe the actual dangerous ones (who never get investigated) are the criminal demon-crats that try and portray everyone as a whack-job, nut-case and/or domestic terrorist.” Typical game plan – those that are guilty simply sling-it – and – lay it out there, as – if you tell a lie long enough – (some) actually believe it to be truth. Haven’t met any Tea Party members calling for violence, sorry Bub!

      • Michael Turner-sfs says:

        Well, you might want to p[ay closer attention to the posts by your colleagues here and on TeaParty.org. I see posts on a daily basis of people calling for the army to oust the president, for president to be executed, advocating “Second Amendment solutions” to our nation’s problems – even calling for a new civil war. If those aren’t calls for violence, I don’t know what is.

      • Michael Turner-sfs says:

        Prosecuting them for what? And how exactly does their alleged actions compare with people calling for military coup and execution of the President of the United States?

      On the other hand, the Democrat party is perilously close to the Communist party. They should be investigated.

        • jreb57 says:

          You must be unaware of the following:

          Redistribution of wealth (which the Democrats want to do)
          “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs” (Communist Party)

          The Benghazi investigation and the documents that show the administration lied about the attack to advance their own agenda. (Democrat talking points)
          “A useful lie is better than a harmful truth” (Communist Party)

          The Justice Departments picking and choosing which laws they will enforce and which they will not enforce and Obama’s use of executive orders to make new law (Democrats)
          “The end justifies the means” (Communist Party)

          Occupy Wall Street (Democrats)
          The concept of “Useful Fools” (Communist Party)

          William Ayers, Van Jones, Marshall Davis all self avowed communists who influenced or supported people who now hold high office in the Democrat Party

          This is not your father’s Democrat Party. Pay attention.

America had decided that its special forces were a cheap substitute for the less glamorous hardware and formations that had traditionally been the foundation of American military power. Now, those elite warriors watched helplessly as the missiles roared overhead north toward the two carriers berthed at North Island.

    The casualties would have been much higher if the Navy had been able to fully man the U.S.S. Carl Vinson and the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan. As it was, when the missiles tore into their hulls and exploded, only several hundred sailors died instead of thousands. Still, in a few moments, two of America’s nine carriers were twisted hulks spewing radioactive smoke. Another dozen Navy ships berthed at local bases were in flames.

    Only the people lining the downtown San Diego waterfront saw what was happening, though local TV camera crews were filming the carnage live. Their stations tried to upload the footage to the network satellites but they could not connect. The satellites were gone, knocked out by Russian ASAT missiles.

    The rest of America was oblivious to the catastrophe in San Diego, and the similar disaster in Norfolk.

    The TV stations next tried the Internet, but it was as if someone had just flicked it off. There was nothing but electronic silence. A coordinated cyber strike had hacked through America’s electronic defenses and shut down the web. Many of the hacks came not from Chinese and Russian teams across the world but from agents within America, infiltrated into key positions in American government and business, who introduced their malware directly into vital systems with thumb drives.

    Simultaneously, outside major metropolises, groups of well-trained commandos, driving SUVs, followed the routes between power transmission stations that they had rehearsed using paper street maps (America’s GPS satellites having been eliminated in the opening minutes). With rifles, they opened fire on the critical transformer equipment, which was guarded only by chain link fences and cameras that no one monitored. When the irreplaceable equipment was shorted out and burning, they drove on to the next site and destroyed it. Between the cyber chaos and physical attacks, cities began to black out.

    America ground to a halt, blind and paralyzed.

    At sea in the Far East, anti-ship ballistic missiles appeared on the screens of the U.S.S. George Washington, the flagship of the only American carrier task force still in the Pacific. The guided missile cruisers cut when military budgets were slashed to fund record entitlement spending might have been able to save it. As it was, the missiles dived in at hypersonic speeds, punching through the flight deck and ripping the mighty ship apart.

    American warships, for so long the hunters, became the hunted. Within a few hours, America’s 265-ship Navy had become a 100-ship Navy.

    The President was about to speak at a rally to protest the opposition party’s “War on the Poor.” The other side had suggested holding military budget cuts to 15% instead of 18%, and the President was gleefully citing the cruelty of the opposition for funding the military-industrial complex on the backs of those living off of entitlements.

    The military’s first instinct was to hustle the President to the 747 flying command post aircraft, which the enemy expected. The enemy could have disrupted that plan if it wished with an attack on the airfield by commandos, but they preferred the President remain in control.

    The President’s flying command post took off, guarded by a flight of four F-15C fighters that were pushing 35 years old. It would have been six escorts, but two planes were down awaiting parts.

    The President’s senior military advisor was a general, chosen for the job not because of a sterling combat record but for being the Public Affairs section’s telegenic face of “The New Military.” The general would have been hard pressed to explain the President’s options if they had not been so stark.

    “Your options? You do have the capacity to launch a nuclear strike,” said the general.

    There were still 100 Minuteman III missiles in silos in Montana that had not been eliminated during the last round of arms negotiations. Due to cuts in maintenance, only 62 were functional that day; they were safe from cyber-attack only because their 1970’s era computer systems were literally too primitive to be hacked. And there were three nuclear missile subs on patrol in the oceans; two were known to be combat effective, while the third may have been sunk – it was unclear.

    “I won’t use nuclear weapons. Ever,” said the President, confirming the opinion reached by the teams of Chinese and Russian intelligence analysts, psychologists and game theorists who had studied the Commander-in-Chief in preparation for that very moment. Deterrence only deters when the threat is credible.

    “What are my other options?” asked the President. The general looked down, shuffling papers.

    “We don’t have a conventional option.”

    “The Army? The Marines?”

    “There are a few units forward deployed, but we’ve brought most of our forces home. What we have left we can’t move fast enough and most of it is designed for counterinsurgency, not conventional warfare – we’ve cut our armored forces because they cost so much to maintain. And to move them we’d need foreign ships, but we can’t count on them. We can’t even count on the sea lanes being clear.”

    “The Air Force doesn’t have bombers? Fighters?” the President asked.

    “Not enough, and not modern enough to get through Chinese and Russian air defenses.”

    The President turned to the Secretary of State. “What about our allies?”

    “No commitments yet. In fact, there’s been no response from several key allies.”

    “We invoked NATO Article 5, didn’t we? We’ve been attacked!” the President shouted.

    “They don’t have any significant forces left. Even if they were inclined to assist…”

    “Inclined?” asked the President, stunned.

    “We need to understand that they may be making a calculated decision…”

    The President did understand. “To go with the winner.”

    No one spoke; the only sound was the noise of the 747’s jets until a communications officer spoke up.

    “I have a video transmission off a Chinese satellite coming … to us. How did they get our communications data?” It was yet another security breach.

    “Just put it onscreen,” ordered the President.

    The transmission was a split screen, the Chinese Premier on the left, the Russian President on the right. They were smiling.

    “What do you want?” the President asked.

    The Russian President spoke. “We want peace. We want justice. And that is why we are here to provide you the terms of your surrender.”

    This scenario is fiction, but if we fail to preserve our military it could be all too real. The views of the author are solely his own.

    time for America to wake to the fact that this is all part of the criminal global UN new world scheme.This Republic is in grave danger thanks to GW Bush 32nd order of the Skull and Bones of the Hariman Neo Nazi Bank and Obama an Ayers and Soros puppet. Besides Hariman and Soros you can add Bernanke,Greenspan,Warburg,Rockefeller,JP Morgan/Chase,Goldman Sachs, and the leader Rothchild Bank of England as the major players to destroy our Republic and its Constitution.

  16. Dustin C. says:

    The democrats where about end the Republicans before they got caught red handed showing they will do or say anything for votes and the regular people don’t even think or care about the sheep. I’m still independent but I won’t vote Democrat ever. They have lost all creditability. ACA,Bengazi and the party killer IRS. These people are scum.

    • jreb57 says:

      “I won’t vote Democrat ever”. What other choice does an independent have? The Democrat party in no way resembles the party of Truman or (John) Kennedy. (Not Ted)

    They do need to move on this. The country is starting to fall apart because this and other violations that have gone unpunished. We are a nation of laws. It is often said that the punishment must be within a reasonable time frame of the incident, for it to have meaning. The meaning is getting lost with time.

    Nope. Not even after the elections. To many libs and to many rinos and not enough men of good standing and integrity!

  21. Richard A. Anderson says:

    The Tea Party’s political activity needs to be investigated. They do NOT qualify for tax exemption. They are ourely political and a menace to truly non-profit organizations. You always look first where the probelm rears its ugly head!

  22. Richard A. Anderson says:

    It is interesting..comments not favorable to the Tea Party are never posted!

  23. John says:

    The tea party is the only group in America truly looking out for We the People. They did not create $17+ TRILLION in debt, unfunbded wars, massive entitlements and out-of-control spending. They did not sue States trying to enforce federal law. The TP did not sell guns to our enemies through Benghazi. The TP is not trying to destroy the 2nd Amendment. The TP did not give us the Obamacare debacle. They are sounding the alarms that our House of State is on fire! And they scare the pants off of the entrenched political hacks who live with their heads in the taxpayer trough.

    • rick says:

      Good one ! Truth ! But , personally I think the TP should change it’s name ! The left has run it through the mill , Need something a little more attractive and firm ! That’s what the enemy is doing by intimidation through uniforms , black air craft and hundreds of bogus agencies ! coarse they have University professors to help with imaging .

  24. darylj46 says:

    Like I said before that I doubt that anything will be done on any of the scandals and it is all a show. To even to have gone this long is proof that corruption prevails. I hope for the life of me I’m wrong but I will not hold my breath. If this was a conservative Constitutional president and DOJ that all of this would have been done already. This is a disgrace to America and American real citizens are allowing it.

  25. jreb57 says:

    Passing the “Fair Tax” and repealing the income tax would not only fix this problem, but boost the economy.

    the latest tea party update is “say goodbye to tea party republicans”.

      Oh please. I understand policy differences between Democrats and Republicans. But nobody should call for somebody’s death – especially because they have a different political philosophy than you do.

    • jreb57 says:

      I assume you mean six feet under the massive amount of debt this administration has racked up for the American taxpayer both Republican and Democrat. The more commonly understood meaning of your post will be hazardous to your health.

          The concept of using useful fools to subvert and divert attention from a secret agenda comes straight from the communist. That would be on the political left, same side as the Democrats.

  30. Mary J says:

    Well, as it turns out, the IRS was fully justified in giving extra scrutiny to tea party applications for tax-exempt status. Aren’t you people outraged that only about 10% of the money you’re giving to the tea party is actually being used to support tea party candidates? The rest is going to line the pockets of tea party “leaders” and “consultants”.
    You’re being ripped off! And any of these groups that have tax-exempt status are ripping off the US Government (in other words, all of us who actually pay our taxes).

    • jreb57 says:

      (The rest is going to line the pockets of tea party “leaders” and “consultants”). That is called the cost of doing business. If you don’t like the way they spend the money, don’t contribute. At least here you have a choice, unlike taxes. But the IRS was making its scrutiny based on the political speech of the organizations rather than how the money was spent which violates free speech. We could solve this by passing the “Fair Tax” but then the IRS would lose the power to grant or not grant exemptions. That might keep them out of trouble.

  31. Tom says:

    We will never get a fair vote until we can, eliminate all votes that are not backed up by valid ID, and I don’t mean phony ID’s like Obama’s birth certificate. I still cannot believe he was elected to our highest office without credible ID, and during a Democrat get together, they had a short time back, after the most recent Boston Marathon, he mentioned that an American won the Marathon, and it was just fitting since a Kenyan had been President for 6 yrs, now if that’s not rubbing it in, I don’t know what is. And all the Democratic audience laughed and clapped, that just shows how rotten, the Democratic Party is, plus the Democratic Administration is eat up by the Muslims they have working in OUR Whitehouse, and have been during the Clinton, and the Obama Administration, and if we are not careful, we will be fighting the Muslims to get our Government back under control. I sure hope we can defeat the Democrats in the Polls or we will be fighting them in the streets.

  32. afanaglenn says:

    Real conservatives have a tough road ahead, being attacked by the democrats, Holder and Obama’s goons, AND their own party, the RINO’s.

    Of course she targeted tea baggers! They were asking for tax free status! That’s what her job is you nincompoops! They looked at more Liberal groups! If this is the best you got, we who love America, the Liberals, are home free!

  34. Seldena says:

    I knew the truth would be found! This also proves the DOJ with Holder is involved and you know obama knew this was going on! He just lies about everything and covers-up all the time he has been in office! Wonder if Bush or the Koch Brothers will be blamed for this??
