The IRS scandal gets MUCH bigger from here. This is why.

The Liberal Union Behind the IRS

By Jeffrey Lord on 5.16.13 @ 6:11AM

Obama, IG Report refuse to touch powerful Treasury Employees Union headed by ex-IRS agent.

“My question is who is going to jail?”
— House Speaker John Boehner on the IRS Scandal

The President couldn’t even bring himself to breathe a word of the truth.

He could fire some hapless Acting Commissioner, but last night Mr. Obama never came close to discussing that which must never be discussed.

The IRS?

It’s about a union: the National Treasury Employees Union. The NTEU. A left-wing union representing 150,000 employees in 31 separate government agencies, including the IRS. A union that not only endorsed President Obama for election and re-election, but a union whose current president, Colleen Kelly, was a 14-year IRS agent and now is both union president and Obama administration appointee (of which more in a moment).

It’s about 94% of NTEU union contributions going to Democrats in the Senate and House in 2012 — candidates who campaigned as vociferous opponents of the Tea Party.

And the recently released report from the Treasury Inspector General? You will not find a single reference to the NTEU. Whose members are both player and referee in the exploding controversy over the IRS targeting of conservative groups.

Which raises the obvious question: how many NTEU members were involved in the writing of the Inspector General’s report?

Even more to the point, what contact — what coordination — has the Obama White House had with their allies in the NTEU leadership as both the White House and the NTEU race to get on top of a scandal that is rapidly engulfing both?

Did I mention that the NTEU has no comment on all of this? And that when President Obama went in front of cameras to make his statement on the IRS scandal — he never once mentioned his very powerful union buddies that have the run of the IRS? Right down to the control of who gets a Blackberry? Literally.

Let’s first see how the IRS/NTEU game with the Tea Party and conservatives is played, shall we?

In the 2012 election cycle, the IRS union gave its money this way:

For the U.S. Senate:
Total to Democrats: $156,750
Total to Republicans: $1,000

For the U.S. House:
Total to Democrats: $391,062
Total to Republicans: $23,000

hard to imagine they would instigate any of this certainly would think they would follow but never lead..

Isn't Jeffrey Lord Tom Woods' neocon nemesis?

Not that I'm saying "take this post down now!" or anything, just be aware of who you're dealing with

Sure does sound like liberal bashing

I tend to be wary whenever I see liberal bashing. It strengthens the false dichotomy. We have to take the fight to the repubs. People dont need to find out that the IRS is a corrupt liberal organization. They need to find out that Obama works for the same people as Bush.

This story is taken for granted by members of the movement. But maybe helpful to alert people as to why there should be mistrust.

Guv't gravy train.

They have to steal from productive people to keep their fat unearned paychecks coming in so they can live off the cheese. How do these swine live with themselves?

The wheels of justice sometimes move v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y

but they seem to be speeding up as of late. Sherry Peel Jackson and Joe Bannister were blowing the corruption whistle 10 years ago,(albeit on a different issue, ie: is it really applicable to as many folks as the IRS claims) and Ms Jackson served a jail term because of it. We could easily just settle the whole issue by ending the IRS, but then, who would fund the Fed's detrimental monetary policies?

Guess we just have to end them both! ;)

How much badder can it get

How much badder can it get when you have a gang of thieves who sole means of existence is to steal wealth and property from Americans under color of law (dumb ass Americans for believing this idiocy). These criminals should be tried and hanged everyone of them for stealing the wealth of several generations which they continue to do and idiots still cry "but how will we pay for roads"... Sigh!

AWESOME ARTICLE!

This could be the strongest tool to dislodge the Tyrant-In-Chief.

Needs to be sent to one of the

Reps. for the hearing next Wednesday. I'd suggest Mike Kely from PA.. He totally grilled the guy today, to ovation from the gallery!

It's a doozie that's for sure.

I don't post up articles too often, but I wanted to make sure as many people as possible get to see this one.

What honest, freedom loving,

What honest, freedom loving, hard working, productive and conservative American would ever want to work for the IRS?

I have a gut feeling that there's not many republicans working for the IRS for obvious reasons.

How can one be, "conservative," and work for the IRS at the same time? That's a walking contradiction.

Not surprised by the numbers, and I'm not surprised about the political blue blinders only union allegiance to Obama.

These people all need to be fired, and they need to be fired now.

Get a real job and actually produce something without depending on a taxpayer funded government check, IRSholes.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

I knew their was a bad liberal stench at the IRS

but after reading that article it really opened my eyes (nose?)to just how bad it is and serious. What a jeopardy to freedom the NTEU is!
