Comrade Tingles About to Be Airbrushed

Of that we’re fairly certain, now that he’s dared question Comrade Hussein’s Junta’s Narrative about “no targeting going on at the IRS.”

Yes, it’s that Chris Tingles. No, we’re really not kidding.

“[I]t’s like he didn’t see what he knew people certainly right, left and center could see, that when you target particular groups, you’re targeting particular groups. I mean, if this were on the other foot, and this was a George W. administration, they were targeting groups that were calling themselves progressives, I would say it’s prima facie evidence of targeting. I don’t think it’s complicated.”

If abuse of power and deliberate targeting of certain political groups going on in an election year (can we quit calling 2012 “legitimate” now, perhaps?) is obvious enough for drooling old fuckwit Chris Tingles Matthews to see, then it’s pretty damn obvious, we’d say.

Thatisall.

    Every time family bring up how the GOP are just creating fake scandals to “get” Obama, I simply ask them how they would react to the exact same news if the administration had an “R” after it.

    Funny thing, they usually get real quiet….

    The real question is how will Tingles best serve the regime?

    Will he, with the assistance of guys from some Alphabet-soup agency, inadvertently exercise his 2nd Amendment rights at home in his study, or will some deranged Reichwinger gun him down – ideally Brady/Giffords-ing him – so he can be the subject of a “domestic safety” “common sense” gun control bill – complete with wheeloutable drooling sympathy factor.

    Which reminds me of a joke: A Muslim, an illegal alien, and a socialist walk into a bar. And the bartender says: “So what’ll it be, Mr. President?”

    The question is, as I see it pups, is……? Have we seen or not seen the Reichstag yet???

    Do the math, what else is left to salvage this incompetent, gangster band of thugs from the historians?

    And y’all know that LAST thing we are in these parts, are is conspiracy freaks.

    Enemies List: Founder of “True The Vote” Harrassed by IRS, OSHA, FBI, and ATF

    This woman has a story to tell.

    In July 2010, Catherine filed with the IRS seeking tax-exempt status for her organizations. Shortly after, the troubles began.

    That winter, the Federal Bureau of Investigation came knocking with questions about a person who had attended a King Street Patriots event once. Based on sign-in sheets, the organization discovered that the individual in question had attended an event, but “it was a come-and-go thing,” and they had no further information on hand about him. Nevertheless, the FBI also made inquiries about the person to the office manager, who was a volunteer.

    The King Street Patriots weren’t the only ones under scrutiny. On January 11, the IRS visited the Engelbrechts’ shop and conducted an on-site audit of both their business and their personal returns, Catherine says.

    Two months later, the IRS initiated the first round of questions for True the Vote. Catherine painstakingly answered them, knowing that nonprofit status would help with the organization’s credibility, donors, and grant applications. In October, the IRS requested additional information. And whenever Catherine followed up with IRS agents about the status of True the Vote’s application, “there was always a delay that our application was going to be up next, and it was just around the corner,” she says,

    As this was occurring, the FBI continued to phone King Street Patriots. In May 2011, agents phoned wondering “how they were doing.” The FBI made further inquiries in June, November, and December asking whether there was anything to report.

    The situation escalated in 2012. That February, True the Vote received a third request for information from the IRS, which also sent its first questionnaire to King Street Patriots. Catherine says the IRS had “hundreds of questions — hundreds and hundreds of questions.” The IRS requested every Facebook post and Tweet she had ever written. She received questions about her family, whether she’d ever run for political office, and which organizations she had spoken to.

    On the same day they received the questions from the IRS, Catherine says, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) launched an unscheduled audit of their machine shop, forcing the Engelbrechts to drop everything planned for that day.

    That was in February. In July, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration paid a visit to Engelbrecht Manufacturing while Bryan, Catherine, and their children were out of town. The OSHA inspector talked with the managerial staff and employees, inspecting the premises minutely. But Bryan says the agent found only “little Mickey Mouse stuff, like, ‘You have safety glasses on, but not the right kind; the forklift has a seatbelt, but not the right kind.’” Yet Catherine and Bryan said the OSHA inspector complimented them on their tightly run shop and said she didn’t know why she had been sent to examine it.

    Not long after, the tab arrived. OSHA was imposing $25,000 in fines on Engelbrecht Manufacturing. They eventually worked it down to $17,500, and Bryan says they may have tried to contest the fines to drive them even lower, but “we didn’t want to make any more waves, because we don’t know [how much further] OSHA could reach.”

    I don’t know what to say.

    This lady formed a patriotic group to combat vote fraud, and the BEEEE-oh thugs went after her with EVERY GOVERNMENT AGENCY THEY COULD USE.

    Woman who called in to Rush Limbaugh today, who’s a “bundler” (big-money fundraiser) for the TEA Party in southern California, said this: “Rush, ever since the IRS scandal broke, I can’t get anyone to write us a check.” That, she said, is the REAL reason the IRS “dropped a dime” on itself — to scare the shit out of any patriotic opposition.

    I cannot say with certainty, but I have read three articles that claim James Rosen’s parents phone records were taken by DOJ.

    I’m starting to think they are going to lash out in any direction to get dirt on anyone who crosses them.
