WSJ/NBC News Poll: Scandals Prompt Doubts About Honesty
Recent controversies surrounding the Internal Revenue Service and other government agencies have sown doubts about the honesty of the Obama administration, but most people don’t hold the president personally responsible for the agency actions, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds.

A majority of poll respondents, some 55%, said IRS scrutiny of conservative groups raised some level of doubt about the administration’s “overall honesty and integrity.”

Seriously?

Why is it so low?

I’d have bet it would have been in the high 70′s.

Oh yeah, “low information voters”.

Argh!

BUSINESS
THESE ARE THE 4 MOST IMPORTANT TAKEAWAYS FROM TODAY’S IRS HEARING

Ousted Internal Revenue Service’s interim head Steven Miller appeared before the House Ways and Means Committee Friday to testify on his agency’s targeting of conservative groups.

And although a slightly bored-looking Miller spent most of the four-hour interrogation doing his best U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder impersonation (i.e. playing the “I don’t know” game), some important facts came to light today.

Here are the top four most important takeaways from Friday’s hearing [in no particular order]:

4. PLANT CONFIRMATION

3. TREASURY KNEW ABOUT THE AUDIT DURING THE 2012 ELECTION

2. MORE INVESTIGATIONS ARE ON THE WAY

1. WHY DIDN’T IRS OFFICIALS SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THIS EARLIER?

So, they used the IRS to swing the election!

What was going on in all the other agencies?

POLITICAL: The IRS is politicized?

Obama’s IRS on warpath against tea parties
Government requiring names, addresses, contacts, relationships

“Basically, we’re objecting to information that the IRS is requesting that is beyond the scope of its legitimate inquiry.”

On the ACLJ website, several questions from the IRS were quoted:

(1) Do you directly or indirectly communicate with members of legislative bodies? If so, provide copies of the written communications and contents of other forms of communications.

(2) Please describe the associate group members and their role with your organization in further detail. (a) How does your organization solicit members? (b) What are the questions asked of potential members? (c) What are the selection criteria for approval? (d) Do you limit membership to other organizations exempt under 501(c)(4) of the Code? (e) Provide the name, employer identification number, and address of the organizations.

(3) Do you have a close relationship with any candidate for public office or political party? If so describe fully the nature of that relationship.

“The quoted requests are merely the tip of the iceberg,” the ACLJ said. “We’re still reviewing the IRS letters and will have more information as we complete our review.”

The report continued, “Critically, the demands we’ve seen are made not in response to complaints of wrongdoing but instead in response to applications for exemption. In other words, the IRS appears to be conditioning the grant of exemptions on the extensive violation of the tea party’s fundamental First Amendment freedoms.”

It’s apparent that there’s a Nixon style enemies list.

How does one fight the IRS with a First Amendment argument?

It revolves around the “charitable deduction”. Guess you just have to forego that.

“We, The Sheeple” better wake up. Could be you next!
