Federal court finds IRS may still be targeting conservatives

John Koskinen

John Koskinen – IRS Commissioner

Knowing what the IRS has done and is still doing, NO ONE with any character, honor or substance can work for the IRS!!!

The reality is that “A free people and the IRS cannot co-exist! The IRS must be destroyed NOW!!!”

A federal court ruled Friday that the Internal Revenue Service has not yet demonstrated that officials stopped targeting Tea Party groups in a decision that excoriated the tax agency for its “discriminatory” treatment of conservative organizations.

“This is a blistering rebuke to the IRS and its defenders,” Walter Olson, senior fellow at the Cato Institute Center for Constitutional Studies, said of the court’s ruling. “It takes on squarely the defense the IRS had raised in this case which is, ‘Whatever happened, we promise not to do it again.'”

“The court goes through and systematically takes that apart in a way that’s very damaging to the IRS’s overall defense,” he added.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, often considered the second most powerful court in the country, reversed two decisions made by lower courts to dismiss lawsuits against the IRS for the targeting of two conservative groups, Linchpins of Liberty and True the Vote.

“Decency, security and liberty alike demand that government officials shall be subjected to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the citizen.   In a government of laws, existence of the government will be imperilled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our Government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the Government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that in the administration of the criminal law the end justifies the means—to declare that the Government may commit crimes in order to secure the conviction of a private criminal—would bring terrible retribution. Against that pernicious doctrine this Court should resolutely set its face.”
