Where did the IRS get the idea that Tea Party groups were fair game for harassment?

Doug Mainwaring, co-founder National Capital Tea Party Patriots

Our good friend Doug Mainwaring has penned a very thorough piece at American Thinker listing many of the possible cheerleaders who egged-on the IRS in its targeting of conservative and (we have just learned) pro-Israel groups.

American Thinker:

Where in the world did “Low level IRS employees” get the idea that Tea Party, Patriot, Constitution, and Small Government groups should be harassed?

Read on for the stunning answer(s) as Mainwaring piles up the evidence.  Then here is the wrap-up:

Let’s review the possibilities:  President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi; Former DNC Head Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Senator John McCain, Rep. Mike Doyle (D-PA), Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO); New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg; USA Today’s DeWayne Wickham; MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews; ABC’s Brian Ross and George Stephanopoulos;  The New York Times’ Frank Rich, Maureen Dowd,* Nicholas Kristof and Thomas Friedman; The Washington Post’s Richard Cohen, Dana Millbank, and Eugene Robinson; and the Editors of the Wall Street Journal.

And these are just the tip of the iceberg, the fountainhead of the fabricated cascade of false information meant to destroy the Tea Party movement, Patriot, Constitution and Small Government groups.

The IRS’s mistreatment of these groups is evidence of our Political Aristocracy becoming unglued, unhinged and unstable.  It is evidence of the fragility of their grip on both Washington and the Nation.  

I don’t know about you, but are you getting a sense that something is coming unglued—exactly how and why is not yet clear.

* Just a little point of interest, Maureen Dowd is my husband’s first cousin and when the Tea Party movement got underway and she was writing critically about us, I wrote to her to invite her to meet some real Tea Party people.  She never answered my e-mail.


  1. I would bet money that each of the low-level employees who participated, were paid a tidy sum by the George Soros scumbags. But the bottom line is: Regardless of why they did it, and/or if such deviants paid them to do it – they, along with their higher level supervisors all the way up, are criminals for doing so – and should all be put in jail and never be allowed to hold a government job again once they get out. This stunt has caused untold damage to what little trust there might have been left in the IRS. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if the whole country just plants feet next April 15 and says – why bother to send in our taxes, when the IRS is being run, or is being allowed to be run, by tyrants. There’s also the matter of vicarious liability. At the end of the chain Obama is culpable, whether it can be proven he was involved or not. Impeachment is totally justified.

  2. I’m new to your list/blog, and I hope you continue to post such informative, refreshing and independent content.  It is in short supply in Maryland, especially in Prince George’s, where I live.  Thanks! —Andy

  3. Answer to lead question: The Oval Office.

  4. Of course Mo doesn’t want to meet any tea partiers. They don’t deal in reality but construct their own. Fox just reported that the NAACP head called the tea party “racist” again. Audacity at it’s finest.
