Judge Orders IRS To Turn Over Secret List Of Conservative Groups It Targeted – Accuses Government Of Acting In Bad Faith

Court Rebukes IRS For Tea Party Targeting, Orders Release Of Secret List – Washington Times

.

.
A federal appeals court spanked the IRS Tuesday, saying it has taken laws designed to protect taxpayers from the government and turned them on their head, using them to try to protect the tax agency from the very tea party groups it targeted.

The judges ordered the IRS to quickly turn over the full list of groups it targeted so that a class-action lawsuit, filed by the NorCal Tea Party Patriots, can proceed. The judges also accused the Justice Department lawyers, who are representing the IRS in the case, of acting in bad faith – compounding the initial targeting – by fighting the disclosure.

“The lawyers in the Department of Justice have a long and storied tradition of defending the nation’s interests and enforcing its laws – all of them, not just selective ones – in a manner worthy of the Department’s name. The conduct of the IRS’s attorneys in the district court falls outside that tradition,” Judge Raymond Kethledge wrote in a unanimous opinion for a three-judge panel of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. “We expect that the IRS will do better going forward.”

Justice Department officials declined to comment on the judicial drubbing, and the IRS didn’t respond to a request for comment on the unusually strong language Judge Kethledge used.

The case stems from the IRS‘ decision in 2010 to begin subjecting tea party and conservative groups to intrusive scrutiny when they applied for nonprofit status.

An inspector general found several hundred groups were asked inappropriate questions about their members’ activities, their fundraising and their political leanings.

The IRS has since apologized for its behavior, but insisted the targeting was a mistake born of overzealous employees confused by the law rather than a politically motivated attempt to stifle conservatives.

Tea party groups have been trying for years to get a full list of nonprofit groups that were targeted by the IRS, but the IRS had refused, saying that even the names of those who applied or were approved are considered secret taxpayer information. The IRS said section 6103 of the tax code prevented it from releasing that information.

Judge Kethledge, however, said that turned the law on its head.

“Section 6103 was enacted to protect taxpayers from the IRS, not the IRS from taxpayers,” he wrote.

Edward Greim, a lawyer at Graves Garrett who is representing NorCal Patriots, said they should be able to get a better idea of the IRS‘ decision-making once they see the list of groups that was targeted.

“What we’ll be able to see is how, starting in the spring of 2010, with the first one or two groups the IRS targeted, we’ll be able to see that number grow, and we’ll even be able to see at the tail end their possible covering up that conduct,” he said.

He said they suspect the IRS, aware that the inspector general was looking into the tax agency’s behavior, began adding in other groups to try to muddle the perception that only conservatives were being targeted.

Tuesday’s ruling is the second victory this year for NorCal Patriots.

In January U.S. District Judge Susan J. Dlott certified their case as a class-action lawsuit, signaling that she agreed with NorCal Patriots that the IRS did systematically target hundreds of groups for special scrutiny.

Certifying the class allows any of the more than 200 groups that were subjected to the criteria to join the lawsuit. But until the IRS complies with the appeals court’s ruling this week, the list of those groups is secret.

Now that the class has been certified, the case moves to the discovery stage, where the tea party groups’ lawyers will ask for all of the agency’s documents related to the targeting and will depose IRS employees about their actions.

The lawyers hope they’ll be able to learn details Congress was unable to shake free in its own investigations.

The Justice Department has concluded its own criminal investigation into the IRS and said the targeting was the result of bad management. But investigators said they found no criminal behavior, and specifically cleared former IRS head Lois G. Lerner, saying her fellow employees said she tried to correct the problems when she learned of them.

Republicans dismissed that investigation as a whitewash by the Obama administration.

Hillary Clinton Publishes Laughable List Of Her Accomplishments (Brian Anderson)

Hillary Clinton Publishes Laughable List Of Her Accomplishments – Brian Anderson

.

.
Besides being untrustworthy and unlikable, Hillary Clinton’s biggest problem is convincing people that she is competent. On numerous occasions she has been asked to list her accomplishments and her answer is always: “Er, um, uh…” In a hilarious effort to show us that she can get the job done, she has published a list of her accomplishments, and let’s just say they are underwhelming.

Seven of Hillary Clinton’s biggest accomplishments showed up an Hillary’s website telling us:
.

Over her decades-long career in public service, Hillary has taken on her share of tough fights. Here are just a few of the biggest things she’s accomplished.

.
Just a few, eh? If this is what she wants to highlight, I shudder to think of what she’s holding back. Let’s see what monumental things she has accomplished:
.

1. Fought for children and families for 40 years and counting.

After law school, Hillary could have gone to work for a prestigious law firm, but took a job at the Children’s Defense Fund. She worked with teenagers incarcerated in adult prisons in South Carolina and families with disabled children in Massachusetts. It sparked a lifelong passion for helping children live up to their potential.

.
Fighting for something is not the same thing as accomplishing something. If she had done anything of substance here, she would have mentioned it. Instead, she just says it sparked a lifelong passion. That is not an accomplishment. The Beastie Boys fought for our right to party, but it doesn’t mean they secured that right.
.

2. Helped provide millions of children with health care.

As first lady of the United States, Hillary fought to help pass health care reform. When that effort failed, she didn’t give up: Hillary worked with Republicans and Democrats to help create the Children’s Health Insurance Program. CHIP cut the uninsured rate of American children by half, and today it provides health care to more than 8 million kids.

.
The State Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) was passed in 1997. Hillary Clinton had nothing to do with it other than she was in favor of it. Her husband Bill, who was President at the time, signed it into law. This particular “accomplishment” of Hillary’s is that she was married to a guy that signed something that was drafted and passed by other people. Also note that part of this ground-breaking effort includes her failure to do something.
.

3. Helped get 9/11 first responders the health care they needed.

When terrorists attacked just months after Hillary became U.S. senator from New York, she worked to make sure the 9/11 first responders who suffered lasting health effects from their time at Ground Zero got the care they needed.

.
Really? How did she do that? By voting for a bill that everyone voted for? She didn’t author or sponsor any legislation related to this as a Senator. How does that qualify as an accomplishment?
.

4. Told the world that “women’s rights are human rights.”

Standing in front of a U.N. conference and declaring that “women’s rights are human rights” was more controversial than it sounds today. Many within the U.S. government didn’t want Hillary to go to Beijing. Others wanted her to pick a less polarizing topic (you say polarizing, we say half the population). But Hillary was determined to speak out about human rights abuses, and her message became a rallying cry for a generation.

.
Much like fighting for something is not an accomplishment, neither is telling people something. Could you imagine if someone put something this sad on his or her résumé? You don’t list things you’ve said to other people; you put down things that you’ve actually done.
.

5. Stood up for LGBT rights at home and abroad.

As secretary of state, Hillary made LGBT rights a focus of U.S. foreign policy. She lobbied for the first-ever U.N. Human Rights Council resolution on human rights and declared that “gay rights are human rights.” And here at home, she made the State Department a better, fairer place for LGBT employees to work.

.
Except that she was against LGBT rights until a couple of years ago. Also, standing up for stuff is not an accomplishment in the same way that fighting for stuff and telling people stuff isn’t.
.

6. Helped expand health care and family leave for military families.

Hillary worked across the aisle to expand health care access for members of the National Guard and reservists – making sure those who served and their families had access to health care when they returned home. And she worked to expand the Family Medical Leave Act, allowing families of those wounded in service to their country to take leave in order to care for their loved ones.

.
Again, she voted for a popular bill that she didn’t draft or sponsor. She was a US Senator. They’re supposed to vote for things.
.

7. Negotiated a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.

As our nation’s chief diplomat, Hillary didn’t back down when the stakes were high. As Hamas rockets rained down on Israel, Hillary went to the region immediately. Twenty-four hours after she landed, a ceasefire went into effect – and that year became Israel’s quietest in a decade.

.
Yeah? How’s that cease-fire working out?

Well, that’s it. In almost 25 years in public service, Hillary Clinton has voted for 2 bills that she had nothing to do with crafting. That’s as pathetic of a list as you will find. How is it even possible for someone to be First Lady, a US Senator, and Secretary of State and have next to nothing to show for it? It’s like she’s gone out of her way to do nothing in all of her years. I guess that’s kind of an accomplishment. Nobody has done less than Hillary.
