Becky Gerritson is the face of Grassroots America @TeaPartyBecky

Also, Dems inform us that IRS overreach can be blamed on Bush, Eisenhower, Issa, and mostof all the uppity targeted groups for bothering to apply in the first place.

    HOLY FUCK! Guy just testified that his confidential donor list appeared on the website of an opponent organization, with parts redacted. When they unlayered the PDF redaction, they found that the document had originated from within the IRS. It had their official seal on it, and had “somehow” wound up publicly posted by a prog organization.

      Quick lets talk about how the court “accepted” the Aurora, CO theater shooters plea of “Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity” which means jack shit.

        Yes, that’s him. And BTW, I despise his group, and disagree with them. But they have as much right to protection under the law as the rest of us.

          I love how he slammed the guy with the bike pin on how the stuff bikepin guy just said (about teh ghey) is exactly what empowers the IRS to harass them.

        • angienc (D) says:

          I agree.
          Nonetheless, I’ve just decided that I will no longer distance myself from such organizations such as NOM by pointing out that I don’t agree with them but they have the right to free speech like the rest of us, etc. because I now believe that gives the vile progs too much air re: their totalitarian “ends justify the means” bullshit tactics. They’re going to call me a racist homophobe anyway, so why bother.

        • votermom says:

          What the vile progs have done, to me, is made me give groups I previously though to be narrow-minded the benefit of the doubt.

          The quality of their enemies makes me think I might have misjudged them.

      I’ve been sending out Tea Party Becky’s video to my friends to share with their low info voter friends.

      Someone just contacted me saying they just got a letter from Liberty University (Jerry Falwell’s school of wingnuttery, but hey, rights is rights) saying the IRS contacted them about all their donors so heads up you might be audited. Freaky that the tenacles of the IRS are so far reaching, are all Christian universities being shaken down for their donor lists?

    In non-IRS news, that fucker Hassan that shot up Ft. Hood is going with a “defense of others” argument for his defense (as in, he was preventing the soldiers from killing his fellow Muslims). But that wasn’t a terrorist attack — oh no, that was work place violence.

    • votermom says:

      I hate that he gets to defend himself – that he’ll be allowed to question the victims on the stand is adding insult to injury.

    Megyn Kelly is on fire. She’s bringing up the misquotes of the IG, that he found “no connection” to the WH. What the IG actually said was that he kept asking IRS employees who ordered this, and they REFUSED TO TELL HIM.

    I’m sick of these Dems parroting “no link was found by the IG”, when the only reason it wasn’t found was because they refused to tell.

    • Lulu says:

      There was a minder sitting in on the IG investigators interviews with employees. This management minder is named Holly Paz. During the last minute she stepped into the hall to allow the employee to say any thing they wanted (with her ear to the door probably). “Holly O. Paz. Director, Exempt Organizations. Rulings and Agreements.” is from an IRS publication dated May 2013.

    • myiq2xu says:

      Doncha love the circular logic?

      “We don’t need to look for evidence showing a link to the White House because we haven’t found any evidence showing a link to the White House.”

      • wmcb says:

        My kid locked me out of the room when I went to check if it was clean. I couldn’t even get in there. Then he went on TV and touted the fact that Mom found no evidence of a dirty room as exculpating.

        Yeah, right.

    Conservative group claims it has proof IRS leaked donor list

    The chairman of an anti-gay marriage group testified Tuesday that his organization has proof that the IRS leaked confidential donor details last year, calling for prosecution into what he described as a “felony.”

    “This just smells and I hope this committee gets to the bottom of it,” John Eastman, chairman of the National Organization for Marriage, said at a hearing before the House Ways and Means Committee.


    But Eastman shed light on another potential controversy involving the IRS — the unauthorized disclosure of tax document information. He recalled how information on their donors was leaked last year and published on the website of the Human Rights Campaign, which Eastman described as their “principal political opponent” on the marriage issue. The documents showed Mitt Romney’s political committee as a donor.

    Asked by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., if he had “proof” that the IRS leaked that material, Eastman said that he did.

    Eastman explained that while some information was redacted in the posted version, his group’s “forensic” specialists were able to strip layers from the document and found “the original document that was posted there had originated from within the IRS.”

    He said the version had “internal IRS stamps,” which “only exist within the IRS.”

    Eastman added: “You can imagine our shock and disgust over this. … We jealously guard our donors.”

    He later alleged the information was “deliberately” provided to their opponents.

    “If that’s inadvertent, the word no longer means anything,” he said, claiming his group has been “stonewalled” in its request for an investigation.

    • angienc (D) says:

      How long before Carney calls Eastman a “birther.”
      Heck, he already said that anyone asking questions about these “so-called scandals” were *akin* to birthers not 2 weeks ago.
      The coming destruction of Eastman is going to be completely predictable. (Hence my resolve to no longer seek to distance myself from the message of *any* citizen exercising their 1st Amendment rights — the message is *irrelevant* and I will no longer comment on whether I *agree* with the message or not).

    I broke my rule against taking extra money with me when I go shopping. You can’t spend what you don’t have (unless you’re the government).

    So I went to the store with an extra $20 from my weekend Lotto winnings. When I got there they were having a sale on some cool stuff I didn’t need.

    I made it out of the store with $2 in my pocket.

    • angienc (D) says:

      You aren’t thinking about this right — it doesn’t matter that you “didn’t need” the cool stuff — if it was *on sale* you SAVED money regardless of how much money was in your pocket when you walked out (i.e., non-sale price of the cool stuff would have been $30; you spent $18 — you just saved $12!).

    • Lulu says:

      Last year I started buying groceries differently. While I have a list it is a general list. I hit the meat aisle first and look at what is on special and buy from that what I like. Then fresh veg and fruit for the same. Then frozen food looking for what is on sale. Then I start over and finish buying from my general list and filling in what I need for my meals with my “sale” items. I have cut my spending and find we are eating a better variety and more seasonally. I do spend longer in the store and walk walk more but for me that is good.

      • myiq2xu says:

        If I only have $20 to spend and I see a good sale that means I have to decide what to put back. I usually have a small cash reserve at home so if I really have to I can go get more money. Not having it with me cuts down on the impulse buys.

        Towards the end of the month when my reserves are low or gone I make sure I still have food and toilet paper. I may run out of a few things and the meals might be pretty plain but I always have the necessities.

        When all else fails you can live for days on ramen soup and tap water.

      The guy sitting with a pair of 2s accusing the guy sitting with a flush of “overplaying” his hand.

  17. angienc (D) says:

    I don’t care is anyone is tired of me beating this dead horse:

    As I’ve already said: say what you will about Rove, there is good reason that on election night 2012 he was flabbergasted by the numbers he was seeing. Where were the voters?

    From a poster at AoS named WolfinNC (not me):

    Now that we know the IRS was openly assisting liberal groups and the Obama campaign, is it too much to ask if the Federal Election Commission or the various state election organizations were in on a similar scam?

    The idea that 4 million fewer white people came out to vote for Romney, after 4 years of the arrogance of Obama, Obamacare, and Benghazi always didn’t quite ring true to me.

    Good question, especially in light of what is coming out about Lois Lerner’s time at the FEC.

    • angienc (D) says:

      Hear that applause to Leno saying Obama should close IRS instead of Gitmo?

      Yeah Axlerod — the GOP is in danger of “overplaying” its hand here. /rolls eyes

    reply yes to Ted here

  19. angienc (D) says:

    Oh and to all the ABRs who are *still* blaming Romney in light of what we now know for a *fact* about what the IRS was doing because he “Should have brought this up!!!eleventy!!” (without the IG report — just based on allegations):

    FUCK YOU!!! You did as much to help ensure Obama was “re-elected” in the manner he was (i.e., ala Chavez) by providing cover as the progs did.

    • votermom says:

      Imo, the only thing Romney did “wrong” was under-estimate the amount of cheating Obama and the entire federal govt would collude in.

      • angienc (D) says:

        Ayup — he didn’t realize that 4 million voters could “disappear” — after 4 years of Obama’s arrogance, $16 trillion federal deficit, 24 million unemployed, etc — and everyone in the MSM would act like it was completely & totally expected.
