Democratic Sen. Levin pressured IRS to investigate conservative nonprofits

quote:

Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., repeatedly pressed the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the tax-exempt status of specific conservative nonprofit organizations in letters to then-IRS commissioner Doug Shulman and director Lois Lerner in 2012.

Levin said he was concerned nonprofit organizations were abusing their tax-exempt status and engaging in partisan politics and requested information from the IRS on 12 organizations

Indeed, Senator Levin is amongst our most Disciplined Party members. He sees the utilitarian value of targeting private individuals with the full weight of The State. He's not cowed or intimidated by the Constitutional Cultists, he knows how to wield State Power. He is one of our best.

That is a rather blantant charge of malfeasance in office and illegal action by the IRS and Levin if even a iota of evidence is shown to be true.

Don't forget Little Chuckie Schumer. He was even more Stalin-esque in temperament.

Conspiracy to influence the outcome of an election?

This has emerged as a talking point.

Katrina Vanden Heuval was working it hard on This Week.

The narrative is that these groups should not have tax exempt status in the first place, so what was done to them isn't as bad as it seems.

I shite you not.

that was what some people were running with the day after, along with the "Bush did it to the NAACP!" line of thought

It was near-immediate.
It was reflexive.
Always, always....the ends justify the means.

.the ends justify the means.

this is the underlying theme of the defense

they truly hate this designation...assuming it only helps the GOP (obviously. they'll ignore the liberal groups that use it...or claim the liberals have to in order to compete with the "evil" people gaming the system)

it's only a natural response, imho. that's why they're shifting the framing to the propriety (or perhaps a better label is "available pathway to abuse") of the designation. if the DEMs can accomplish this framing, the GOP is all but dead in 'Murka for a while

re: Democratic Sen. Levin pressured IRS to investigate conservative nonprofits
SFP, You underestimate the self-righteous , psuedo-religious nature of Fundamentalist Liberalism by half .It is the philosophy of MAN AS GOD. What I do is right, because I do it.... It infers that one's opponent is hopelessly wrong and that any action taken against that opponent is therefore acceptable, in some basic sense, even if it violates The Rule Of Law. That's why you always, always get these moving-goalpost arguments that seek to justify that which has ALWAYS been understood by all involved to be corrupt and unacceptable in the public arena. Except this time it's ok,,, see...because it's in the service of our critical political movement so....

re: Democratic Sen. Levin pressured IRS to investigate conservative nonprofits
Lsupimp has provided a good example and summary of the Realpolitik of the US Left in action.

Realpolitik practitioners are free to disregard all out-moded, ancient and ineffective notions of morality arising out of the Judeo-Christian traditions.

Once we abandon the out-moded Judeo-Christian notions of Truth, Morality, Integrity, Honesty, Loyalty, Fidelity, Faith, Knowledge, etc., we are free to pursue our Ends TRULY by ANY means necessary.

One of the reasons why the Atheistic movement is so strong with the Left is because one cannot be a sincere person of Judeo-Christian faith and, at the same time, practice Realpolitik on behalf of the movement as an effective operative of the Left.

The sincere Leftist is a believer in Luciferian principles that embrace one's own moral supremacy and spiritual divinity, while at the same time (and this is crucial), categorically rejecting the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, and the moral supremacy and spiritual divinity possessed in Him.

In sum, Liberalism is not only dangerous, but, it is also arguably Luciferian.

One of the Congreemen in the hearing with Miller had A copy of the letter sent from Sen. Levin to the IRS. Levin mentioned several groups by name in the letter that he wanted scrutinized (targeted), and they were.
