IRS Officials Visited White House More Than 100 Times During Targeting - Bush-Era IRS Chief Visited WH Once in 4 Years.

More grist for the conspiracy mill – except the way this thing is going, conspiracy may be the least of our worries.


Top IRS officials, whose agency was under investigation for targeting conservative groups, visited the Obama White House more than 100 times over two years while the probe was going on, far more often than in previous administrations and frequently enough that Republicans suspect White House officials knew about the targeting.

Lawmakers now investigating the Internal Revenue Service practice zeroed in on those nearly weekly White House meetings to determine whether an IRS official — or someone higher up in the administration — had approved the targeting and whether it was politically motivated.

The frequent meetings also raised questions about the White House’s claims that it couldn’t have instigated the targeting of conservative groups because it took a hands-off approach to the tax agency, going so far as to describe it as independent of the administration even though it’s part of the Treasury Department.

      obamunism is “Treason”

        Ignorance must be bliss, huh?

      Until now we haven’t had this large of a number of 501(4)c’s masquerading as “social welfare” organizations.

      The majority of them are conservative groups trying to get Republicans elected into the Senate, House and the presidency, in clear violation of the law.

      Their lawbreaking is getting exposed. Get over it.

      • costahilbert

        Masquerading? Have a look at the existing 501C4 registered titles. ‘Save our Secret Ballot’, Mass Resistance’, ‘Vets for Freedom’. ‘People for the American Way’ … Sure looks like they are ‘Masquerading’. There is nothing illegal about trying to raise money to fund for the party you support. BUT IT IS ILLEGAL for a government agency to single people out and break the LAW by intentionally impeding a corporation. This does not matter whether it is Democratic or Republican support entity or even a little corner store. There has to be a point where WE hold the government accountable for their actions.

      Looks a lot like criminals trying to cover their asses.

      CYA is a pseudo military political term for trying to stay out of hot water. Cover Your Ass.

      Every lie comes with a story that has to be remembered and most often changes a lot over time.

      The truth never changes.

      Today we are supposed to believe and accept that Obama was “coked up” the night of Benghazi and therefore “innocent” of responsibility? At what point is coking up an acceptable excuse for anything? Especially for a president and not a dictator?

      The simpletons are being led down the road like the sheep they are. Should this be investigated…YES! Should Obama be indicted……….YES! Should all involved be convicted for crimes if proven in a court of law…………YES! But please do not go down this road of “but, but, but Bush was better!!!” You are being prepped for the next election when a Republican will probably take the reigns because Presidents are NOT elected, they are chosen. Here is the secret…..wait for it……..they are all the same, there is NO difference between Republican or Democrat, they both serve the same masters! All these super abuses started with the Patriot act, by a Republican President, but all the simpletons thought it was funny back then. Those days our 1st and fourth amendment rights were being trampled. Remember when protesters were corralled three blocks away from the Republican Convention? Remember how you all laughed and thought it was so cute? WE WARNED YOU WHAT WAS COMING! Now that your 2nd amendment and the fascist control of government is being abused it is not so funny now is it? But don’t let THEM convince you that the Republicans can do it better because the reality is it will all be the same. Obama has kept the war machine going, refuses to close Guantanamo, corporate profits are the highest in history, jobs still going overseas, offshore tax accounts by corporations are not being touched, military contractors making all time high profits, Isreal’s war crimes are defended by this administration, and on and on, yup sounds like a Republican dream come true to me!

        Did you come up with that all by your self? Awww, how cute!

    • alien

      Liberal groups were also targeted. There is no conspiracy here.

      • TruthSetsUFree

        Name one! :neutral: :eek:

      It would take a total idiot to think BHO didn’t know about this. AS for e.holder, it’s going to be hard for this clown to investigate himself, and his boss. He’s just not that smart. The bi**h in charge of odumbcratcare, who pleads the fifth needs to be jailed with all aforementioned.

      100 Official visits during the 2 years before the Re-Placement campaign and O’Puke the “Muslim in Chief” was never talked to or know what was going on at the IRS, Time to appoint a “Special Prosecutor”.

    • freeman57

      One thing I can agree with the WH response is they really are not in charge of the IRS. The IRS is a division of the Treasury which is overseen by the IMF. IRS is a for profit private debt collection agency for the IMF. That is why they let the not incharge of slip up go, because it is nothing more than the hammer for any administration and has been used for political purposes since it’s inception. I have no love for the current admin but that part is the only truth in the statement. Don’t believe it google IRS, treasury and IMF see for yourself

    • Cautious Gautious

      If any other American was visited even 4 times over 4 years by a criminal/terrorist, they would be in Gitmo long before now.

    • God-walked-among-us

      “More grist for the conspiracy mill” government officials conspiring to illegally limit political free speech is not ‘conspiracy theory’ – it’s collision! & conspiracy proof of growing oppression.
