Timmy “I can’t do my own taxes correctly” Geithner and the Treasury Department…

June 21, 2013

WHY???  Why does ANYONE find it hard to believe, that when you put a lying tax CHEAT in charge of the Treasury Department which is in charge of ENFORCING the nations TAX LAWS, that that agency would be UNABLE TO ACCOUNT FOR ITS EXPENDITURES???

I just think this article is HILARIOUS!!!

Treasury still stonewalling on cost of swanky IRS gatherings” – The Daily Caller

Oklahoma Republican Sen. Tom Coburn asked then-Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner in April 2012 for an accounting of all expenses for all conferences by all branches of the Treasury Department last year. In response, a Treasury assistant secretary provided Coburn with a spreadsheet showing a total of about $500,000 in conference costs.

This is $48.5 million short of the costs for IRS conferences alone that were revealed in a report released in May by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.

This time Timmy “Turbotax is too hard” was only off by $48.5 MILLION!!!


And who expects anything less???

Doug Shulman, the IRS and The White House??

May 31, 2013

This story is gaining more traction.  I mentioned the story here and here.  Last night Bill O’Reilly highlighted the issue concerning Doug Shulman, the head of the Internal Revenue Service while the IRS was TARGETING conservative groups.  This recap is from the Daily Caller:

“Is there now a smoking gun in the IRS scandal?” O’Reilly said. “That is the subject of this evening’s ‘Talking Points Memo.’ We do expect criminal charges to be leveled against some people working in the IRS because they abused their power by targeting conservative groups and individuals. But the major question remains unanswered: Did the campaign of intimidation come from the White House? Well, today, there is disturbing information. This man, former IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman, visited the White House — ready — 157 times. Incredible. By comparison then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton went to the White House 43 times. Then-CIA Director Leon Panetta: 20 times. So what the heck was Mr. Shulman doing the White House with that kind of frequency?

The TARGETING, if it was not started in the White House, was AT LEAST KNOWN ABOUT in the White House, and anyone that denies this is delusional.  I’m still leaning toward this program started in the White House.  It might not have been done by Obama (but it also could have been), but I believe it very easily could have been Rahm, Jarrett, Axelrod, Geithner, Plouffe, etc.

Grab some popcorn, this is going to take a while….

Questions for the IRS….

May 17, 2013

I am sure by now that everyone has heard that the Internal Revenue Service, the IRS, has targeted conservatives over the last several years for special attention.  I am sure that everyone has heard that now the IRS is getting special attention from Congress, the media, etc.  I have NO SYMPATHY for the IRS!!!  But I do think that the process should be fair, balanced, and equitable.

For some background, the following are some questions that the IRS was asking individuals and organizations:

Probing questions, long delays for tea party groups” – CNN

Documents from March 2012 provided to CNN by Ken Johnson of the Indiana group shows the IRS asked for copies of “the pages” of its website — including social networking sites — and a “list” of the group’s “activities to date,” including a description of each event.

The IRS also asked the group to “provide a list of your communication to your members or others,” including speeches, e-mails, flyers, billboards and “other literature.”

Weirdest IRS Questions for the Tea Party: Views, Donors, and Etymology” – ABC

Here are some of the weirdest and most notable questions and requests that ABC found in roughly half a dozen IRS questionnaires sent to tea party groups from 2010 to 2012:

  • Provide a list of all issues that are important to your organization. Indicate your position regarding each issue.”
  • “Please explain in detail the derivation of your organization’s name.” (in a letter to the Ohio-based 1851 Center for  Constitutional Law)
  • “Please explain in detail your organization’s involvement with the Tea Party.”
  • “Provide details regarding your relationship with Justin Binik-Thomas.” (a Cincinnati-area Tea-Party activist)
  • “Provide information regarding the Butler County Teen Age Republicans and your relationship.”
  • Submit the following information relating to your past and present directors, officers, and key employees: a) Provide a resume for each.”
  • The names of the donors, contributors, and grantors. … The amounts of each of the donations, contributions, and grants and the dates you received them.”
  • The names of persons from your organization and the amount of time they spent on the event or program.” (for events)
  • “Provide copies of the handbills you distributed at your monthly meetings.”
  • “Fully describe your youth outreach program with the local school.”
  • “Please provide copies of all your current web pages, including your Blog posts. Please provide copies of all of your newsletters, bulletins, flyers, newsletters or any other media or literature you have disseminated to your members or others. Please provide copies of stories and articles that have been published about you.”
  • Are you on Facebook or other social networking sites? If yes, provide copies of these pages.”
  • “Provide copies of the agendas and minutes of your Board meetings and, if applicable, members ship meetings, including a description of legislative and electoral issues discussed, and whether candidates for political office were invited to address the meeting.”
  • “Do your issue-related advocacy communications compare to the positions of candidates or slates of candidates on these issues with your positions? Provide copies of these communications. What percentage do these constitute of your issue-related advocacy communications?”
  • “Do you have a close relationship with any candidate for political office or political party? If so describe fully the nature of that relationship.”
  • “Apart from your responses to the preceding, estimate the percentage of your time and what percentage of your resources you will devote to activities in the 2012 election cycle, in which you will explicitly or implicitly support or oppose a candidate, candidates or slates of candidates, for public office.”

7 unnecessary questions the IRS asked Tea Party groups” – USA Today

“1. Requests the names of donors.

2.  Requests a list of all issues that are important to the organization and asks that the organization indicate its position regarding such issues.

3.  Requests 1) the roles and activities of the audience and participants other than members in the activity and 2) the type of conversations and discussions members and participants had during the activity.

4.  Asks whether the officer, director, etc., has run or will run for public office.

5.  Requests the political affiliation of the officer, director, speakers, candidates supported, etc., or otherwise refers to the relationship with identified political party–related organizations.

6.  Requests information regarding employment, other than for the organization, including hours worked.

7.  Requests information regarding activities of another organization – not just the relationship of the other organization to the applicant

IRS demands alarm Florida tea partyers” – Sun Sentinal

There are MANY, MANY, MANY more articles, if you would like to see more do a google search.  Did I say MANY??  That may be an understatement.

Anyway, in order to be fair, I have started a list of questions THAT EVERY SINGLE CURRENT AND PAST EMPLOYEE OF THE IRS, NEEDS TO PUBLICLY ANSWER, before they are allowed to continue their employment.  After we have examined these answers, we may expand to the Department of the Treasury, which oversees the IRS, and then maybe we will move to the White House, which IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL AGENCIES OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT.

Here we go:

1.  What did you have for Breakfast today?  Include the exact amount of every ingredient, the process used to move that ingredient from inception to the final product, the duration of the event, who else was present (within 250′), what was discussed by any of those persons, if any decisions were made, what those decisions were, and any other information that someone might find interesting.

2.  Answer question #1 for EVERY previous day of your life.

3.  Answer question #1 for EVERY day of the rest of your life.

4.  Provide information on every person that lives within 1 mile of your primary residence.

5.  Provide minutes for every meeting that you have ever been present for, include video conferences, half time meetings, parent teacher conferences, doctor visits, or anytime that someone besides yourself has been near enough to have heard you speak in a normal voice.

6.  Provide a detailed, minute by minute, schedule of what you did yesterday, include the names and birth dates, of everyone that you came within 50 feet.

7.  Answer question #6 for EVERY previous day of your life.

8.  Answer question #6 for EVERY day of the rest of your life.

9.  Answer question #6 for everyday of your immediate family members and all of their relatives.

10. What did you think about today?  Please explain any gaps.

I think 10 questions is more than reasonable.  If you disagree, go back and look at the questions that THEY ASKED FIRST.

After, we have compiled than answers for each employee, they will then be subject to an AUDIT, no more rigorous than what they have done to Frank VanderSloot.

I only want to be FAIR!!!  And let NO ONE forget, Tim “I can’t run Turbo Tax” Geithner was the one in charge of the Treasury Department, which oversees the IRS, during the egregious targeting of conservative groups.  Tim Geithner should be held RESPONSIBLE for this blatent law breaking!!!

After this examination is complete, dismantle the IRS, make the system SIMPLE AND STRAIGHT FORWARD, see a suggestion here.

THE IRS Scandal!!!!

May 15, 2013

Unless you have been living under a rock, and even then it might be impossible, you have heard about the IRS, that is the Internal Revenue Service, the “Tax man”, TARGETING conservative groups for harrassment.  You might not have heard the Obama Administration, and the President himself, have tried to minimize the scandal.  You know it is BAD when one of the Presidents own perpetual defenders, Jon Stewart, is making jokes about the situation:

Stewart Destroys Obama Over IRS Scandal, Lack Of ‘Managerial Competence’: You’ve Vindicated Conspiracy Theorists

So all of this has been happening since AT LEAST 2011, they had meetings in 2012 and news finally leaked out in the middle of 2013…

2 YEARS!!!!  This has been going on for AT LEAST 2 YEARS!!!

Are you kidding me??  This government is not only CORRUPT, it is INCOMPETENT!!!  And you want me to believe that “they” will be able to run OBAMACARE???  Seriously??

Also, I do not want anyone to forget who was in charge if the IRS during this time.

Do you know who that was ??

Does anyone remember Timmy “Turbo Tax” Geithner.

I have posts here, and here.

Timmy belongs in JAIL!!!!

The DOJ and Tax Fraud!!!

March 30, 2012

UPDATE:  It appears as if the following story about Gov. Haley was false, as reported at a new article from the Daily Caller.  Anything that relates to Gov. Haley below can be ignored.  The questions for Obama and Holder STILL stand!!

Here is a great article, in the Daily Caller, about “possible” charges being filed by the Department of Justice (DOJ), run by uber-liberal Eric Holder of Fast and Furious and dropping charges against th New Black Panthers (that had already been found GUILTY!!) fame, against Governor Haley of South Carolina.

First, let me comment on this case:  IF Mrs. Haley has committed Tax Fraud, then indict her, take her to court, and if found guilty penalize her accordingly!

Second, I have a question for Eric Holder:  I am encouraged that you are “vigorously pursuing” tax cheats, when are charges going to be filed against Tim Geithner, Charlie Rangel, Tam Daschle, etc.?  Or are you only interested in alleged Republican cheats??

I guess I should ask President Obama, now that Haley appears to have the qualifications, what Cabinet position will she be nominated for??

Tim Geithner vs. the Tea Party

April 19, 2010

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said in an interview Sunday, when asked about the Tea Party protests, that the Obama administration is paying more attention to the deficit than the Bush administration did.

I almost fell off my chair laughing at this comment.  Then I went looking for the transcript of the quote, you know, to make sure that someone said something.  I found an interview with “Meet the Press” and I could not find the comment.  I still want to be fair to “I didn’t have to pay my taxes till I wanted to work for the government” Timothy “I am not smart enough to figure out Turbo Tax” Geithner.

If anyone knows where this was said, please, let me know, so that I can reference it.
