Stunning Confirmation: Judicial Watch Obtains IRS Documents Showing McCain Staff Urging IRS To Target Tea Party Groups…

It has long been suspected; the footprints and fingerprints were always present; McCain repeatedly denied it…. now the evidence surfaces.

For those who remember the issues when the IRS, White House and DOJ organized the post 2010 election “shellacking” targeting of Tea Party groups, the latest discovery from Judicial watch is confirmation of a long-held opinion.  John McCain was instrumental in supporting the weaponization of the IRS to target tea party groups.

WASHINGTON DC – […]  In the full notes of an April 30, 2013, meeting, McCain’s high-ranking staffer [Henry] Kerner recommends harassing non-profit groups until they are unable to continue operating. Kerner tells Lerner, Steve Miller, then chief of staff to IRS commissioner, Nikole Flax, and other IRS officials, “Maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous.” In response, Lerner responded that “it is her job to oversee it all:”

Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time. Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely. Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints. Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.

Judicial Watch previously reported on the 2013 meeting.  Senator McCain then issued a statement decrying “false reports claiming that his office was somehow involved in IRS targeting of conservative groups.”   The IRS previously blacked out the notes of the meeting but Judicial Watch found the notes among subsequent documents released by the agency.  (Read Full Article)

The motives were simple.  The GOPe leadership were being challenged by Tea Party primary candidates.  Power was being confronted.  The professional republican party was in full alignment with the Obama administration in removing the existential threat represented by the challenge to their political power and incumbency.  McConnell, Hatch, Burr, Graham, McCain, Cornyn, Corker et al, were willing to do anything and everything to get rid of the challenges to their political power.   Hence, the term “Decepticons” was born.

In October 2015 the DOJ announced it was dropping the investigation into the IRS, Lois Lerner, and the unlawful sharing of taxpayer data in the IRS targeting investigation surrounding True The Vote et al.

holder and obama

As a direct consequence of the DOJ decision, congressional inquiry into the IRS targeting matter seemingly dropped from the radar.

However, if you draw a line from the original intent of the entire enterprise, the post-2010 mid-term “shellacking”/”secret research project“, forward to the 2016 election cycle an interested observer might still be left asking:

“why did the IRS, through Lois Lerner, deliver the 1+ million pages of tax filings, to include the entire donor list of Tea Party and patriot groups, through 21 CD-ROMs and not by electronic data transfer.  Information that was specifically sent to Eric Holder and the U.S. Department of Justice”?

This is an obvious question which, despite the numerous congressional hearings on the matter, was never asked – nor answered.

The entire scheme is riddled with complexity; almost too complex for the average person to understand, and seriously difficult to summarize.  However, when you boil it down here’s the essential components that are no longer suspicion or supposition, but factually provable:

As a result of a trillion dollar stimulus filled with scheme and graft; and as a result of Obamacare being similarly schemed in backroom deals and late night votes;  President Obama was “shellacked” in the November 2010 election.

The White House didn’t see the defeat a flawed policy issue; rather as the entrenched ideologues they are, they saw the SCOTUS case “citizens united” as the principle tool used by the White House opponents to organize and fund political movements, ie. the tea party.

The Obama Team response to the 2010 Shellacking was to use the Dept. of Justice (AG Eric Holder) to weaponize the IRS and go after groups -like Tea Party Groups- organized under the financial umbrella of 501(c)(4) donation structuring.

Years later, when the scheme was discovered – the White House denied knowledge (“not even a smidgen of corruption”), the DOJ feigned ignorance, and the IRS began working overtime trying to hide the construct of the prior communication, planning and strategy.

  • The head of IRS tax exempt division, Louis Lerner, pled the Fifth.
  • Obama’s Chief of Staff Jack Lew was made Treasury Secretary (IRS is sub division of Treasury Dept.) where he was/is able to continue hiding information.
  • And Eric Holder constructed a team of DOJ lawyers to isolate, hide and manipulate the trail of evidence within the DOJ.

Just before the IRS targeting scheme was fully discovered/comprehended, and seemingly overlooked by any curious media enterprise, in February 2013 representative Maxine Waters said:

“The President has put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life. That’s going to be very, very powerful. That database will have information about everything on every individual on ways that it’s never been done before and whoever runs for President on the Democratic ticket has to deal with that. They’re going to go down with that database and the concerns of those people because they can’t get  around it. And he’s [President Obama] been very smart. It’s very powerful what he’s leaving in place.” (link)

Loose Lips Sink UniParty Scheme Ships

Against, the backdrop of new information which proves the UniParty, both dems and republicans, benefited from the targeting of the Tea Party and oppositional forces; and with the full comprehension that Mitch McConnell and the republican leadership organized a post Citizens United strategy to work around their financial dependency on the electorate via Super-PACs; aren’t you just a little bit curious what the purpose was to assemble a data-base or “Secret Research Project“?

Lois Lerner’s and other IRS officials’ concerns about how to handle these donor lists came on the heels of an advisory from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) to her and other IRS officials in late March 2012 of “an audit we plan to conduct of the IRS’s process for reviewing applications for tax exemption by potential section 501(c)(4), 501(c)(5), and 501(c)(6) organizations.”

March 2012 “audit we plan to conduct” was the IG notification for a pending investigation of IRS.  Specifically of their handling of Conservative Groups filing applications and status.

We all know the result of that investigation was a finding the IRS was indeed targeting conservative groups – hence the IRS scandal erupted in the headlines.

However, far more troubling were later discoveries into the internal communications which suggested much more nefarious activity regarding the assembly of secret lists, the “Secret Research Project”.

An undertaking by both the Obama Administration and the DOJ together with the IRS began to surface.

The American Center for Law and Justice put it thusly:   We know the IRS unconstitutionally targeted conservative groups.  We know they illegally demanded, obtained, and held the donor lists of these conservative organizations.  Now we learn that in 2012, the height of the targeting, the IRS was involved in a “secret research project” with this confidential, illegally obtained donor information.

That’s more than a big deal.  It’s potentially criminal.

The very fact that the IRS was using the phrase “secret research project” should give every American pause.  But the fact that this project was conducted as part of a well-orchestrated effort to target and silence conservative Americans is utterly disturbing.

Now, again, ask yourself:  Why would Lois Lerner be delivering 21 CD-ROMs of data, lists of every American who joined arms with the Tea Party, to Eric Holder in the DOJ instead of just transferring that data over their internal computer systems?

WASHINGTON […] “After the Justice Department turned over the database to the Oversight Committee this month in response to a subpoena, the Justice Department says it was informed by IRS officials that it contains legally protected taxpayer information that should not have ever been sent to the FBI and it now plans to return the full database to the IRS,” a statement from the oversight committee said.

According to material obtained by the committee, the IRS sent the FBI “21 disks constituting a 1.1 million page database of information from 501(c)(4) tax exempt organizations, to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.”

The transaction occurred in October 2010.  (link)

Overlay this Machiavellian web of deceit and power against the latest understandings of how John McCain dispatched another member of his staff, David Kramer, to act as a go-between and facilitator for the Christopher Steele dossier use against candidate Trump; and factor in how the entire intelligence apparatus was weaponized; and consider that both Democrat and Republican leadership were willfully blind in this effort; and a very clear picture emerges.

If you wonder why the entire corrupt DC political class is openly in opposition to President Donald J Trump…. well,…

ask the right questions

Once you see the strings on the marionettes, you can never go back to a time when you did not notice them…

    This site and its users have encouraged me to be more proactive in communicating with elected officials. Here’s my latest, which I sent to President Trump.

    I read today that a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information lawsuit found that in April of 2013 “John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to ‘audit so many [501c applicants, mainly conservative Tea Party groups] that it becomes financially ruinous.’”

    Obviously you wouldn’t have known about this when you appointed Kerner Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel. But it is appalling that Kerner heads an agency charged with “protecting federal employees and applicants from prohibited personnel practices” while previously supporting the political and financial targeting of law-abiding U.S. citizens. I think a “you’re fired” conversation is in order.

    If I’ve said once, I’ve said it 100 times. McCain has always been an operative for the DNC.

They may have Un-branded or rebranded, but make no mistake about the ideology, it’s still the Tea Party’s, which Trump adopted.

      You’re absolutely right. We’re still here, just re-formed. The TP rallies of 2010 have morphed into Trump rallies (with those of us who can’t attend watching/participating online).

      My 3 TP groups here in the Hudson Valley were all harassed, audited and pretty much disbanded – officially. Unofficially, most of us because highly activated, some very involved in being watchdogs/reporters over local politics, some have radio shows and podcasts, some are writers, and most have remained true to the cause of liberty and the Constitution. Needless to say, some are NeverTrumpers, but this only proves that the Right is a pack, not a herd, and we have internal disagreements and independence of thought, unlike the Left.

      I remember well when Juan McCainez (or just No Name, as Q calls him) called us Hobbits in his WSJ piece. I wore it as a badge of honor and even added it to my name on FB (many did). McCainez so clearly didn’t even understand that the Hobbits were the heroes of the story. That man is very, very evil, but he is also demonstrably very stupid.

      McStain gor shot down because he was incompetent. Remember, he also caused the deaths of 2 sailors on the USS Forrstal because he had to play hot dog rather than just fly. His daddy was the only reason he even had a career.

    McStain shoulld have his taxpayer financed medical care taken away, his beech wife in no way should be appointed to his Senate seay when he dies, frankly his property should be taken away from him, Every single conservative group imaginable needs to sue McStain to bankruptcy. the communist brainwashed traitor to America. I didnt vote for MCStain i either of hislast 2 Senate campaigns, nor for president in 2008. Stories like this are why. I knew McStain was a pig back when the Keating 5 episode happened.

      It’s worth looking at how the Navy is covering up gross criminal negligence in the cases of two destroyers getting wrecked and killing sailors:

      https://news.usni.org/2018/06/19/navy-drops-homicide-charges-uss-fitzgerald-commander-junior-officers

      Back when the Forrestal happened, there was an extensive investigation which had to exonerate the pampered son of an admiral. The zuni missile “accidentally” fired was chosen as the cause.

      Follow the current debacle to see just how far the Navy goes to protect its image, and certain classes of snowflakes. It’s systemic.

        Why did this case get handed to Admiral Caldwell? He is currently the Director, Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program (Admiral Rickover’s old job). With much to lose, he is the perfect choice to limit the amount of corrosion affecting the Navy’s tarnished image. Sadly, the USN is still an organization guided by over 200 years of tradition and totally unhampered by progress.

    This thread reveals nothing new about John McCain but a great deal about the commenters.

    The venom expelled with regard to John McCain’s life and death is no different than the venom the left spews toward President Trump, his family, and his supporters.

        The comparison I make is not between the targets – but the similarity of those who are doing the targeting.

        piper567 says “judy, one thing ab being a Christian, is I believe in He!!. It is actually kinda nice to know this creature will indeed have all of eternity to reflect on his treachery..”

        Well, I have known individuals who were headed for hell and some who are there now. I certainly don’t take pleasure in that reality.

        Robert Holmes at 8:43 pm has this wish: “I hope Song Bird McCain lives a long long time. Long enough to suffer in extreme and brutal agony.”

        Festering Boil (at 11:20) sends this message to McCain’s daughter: “I think what is happening to your dad is hilarious.”

        RobInPa: has this wish (at 8:57): “He needs to die suddenly, but not too quickly, from a horrific wood-chipper accident.”

        …and rf121 at 9:06 adds to that wish: “Feet first”

        I’ll leave off with the examples… as I said, of course I see an obvious distinction between the target John McCain and the target, Donald J. Trump and I never suggested otherwise.

        Where I do not see any distinction is between the vicious hearts and cursings of those who are attacking the two men. And THAT is a commentary on those speaking and thinking that way.

        Famous old saying from a long time friend: “What others do is a reflection on them; how I respond is a reflection on me.”

        The concept isn’t that complicated, I don’t think. I would not wish for obama to be killed in a wood chipper. I do not wish for John McCain to be killed in a wood chipper. And I will not take pleasure in the prospect of John McCain in hell. That’s God’s province.

        It just seems to me that so-called conservatives seem to think that just because they are really, really mad it becomes justification for vicious thinking and filthy threats and ideas about how to destroy other people. And that is an adolescent behavior: “Well, Mom – he just made me SO mad!!!” (teenager explaining why his brother got a brick across the forehead that required stitches)

        Oh. Ok. So as long as we know you were really mad – – – – let ‘er rip.

        RobInPa wants a sitting Senator in the United States Congress to be killed in a wood chipper – do you find that to be a good thing?

        Words mean things. This country is in the mess it’s in because so many stopped believing that words mean things – and that has two effects: people stop listening to anything that anyone says because they know half of it is just them blowing their mouth off; and, those who might have something helpful to say finally just fall silent because the level of discourse has been reduced to curses of suffering and death on political opponents, and curses about horrible deaths, and taking joy in their physical sufferings.

        When you say “Surely even YOU can see the distinction, can’t you?” You are mixing two entirely different elements.

        The level of words, curses, and hatred coming from the thoughts of treehouse commenters is a commentary on those commenters. It is NOT a commentary on John McCain.

      Well, Sharon, President Trump and John McCain are two Very different People. I admit there is some vitriol expressed, for example, about him in the afterlife, that I think we should leave to the Lord, and also I would be careful about his family, unless they try to fill a vaccum of his power, like trying to assume his Senate seat. Beyond that, considering the evil he has done throughout his career, I cannot agree.

        Also will add I’m not crazy about the idea of urinating on anyone’s grave, no matter who they are, or spitting on them. For the rest, I think some of it, like the wood chipper, is just venting. As far as the dignity of a U.S. Senator, McCain forfeited that long ago.

    I was trying to back off the political sites just a little bit, last night. Trying to get over some really rough stuff going on in my personal life, trying to get my mind calm.
    Then I come here this morning, and see this bombshell.
    Knowing your worst suspicions, your paranoid delusions, your conspiracy theories, are all the TRUTH! Not only as bad as I thought. But worse.
    Damn McCain to Hell.
    One of the saddest parts is, the Tea Partiers and the original Occupiers were on the same side. They were not to be allowed to know that.
    Therefore, Tea Party was a bunch of racists, and the Occupiers were a bunch of smelly dirty ignorami in search of free stuff.
    Bernie jumped in the primary when Hillary was to be anointed to usher in Obama’s third term. He knew something didn’t smell right with the Democratic Party. They gave him a big taste of just how putrid and rotten they were, and he ate it, swallowed it, and said “please may I have some more?”
    Somebody tell Bernie this.
    He needs to look at this, use the brain God gave him, man up, and speak up about this disgusting corruption. He has contempt for the Republican Party? Well it was those Republicans who did this!

    Yes conservative Sarah, he also gave you a national lift (as a wooden-nickle trick towards voters)…and yes, you boosted (for good reason) his flailing campaign in ’07- 2008.

    Innocence (or guilt) by (mis) association may be a misnomer stereotype,
    yet, it occurs in peoples opinions, whether one wants it, or not.

    [A verfiable history record may not be a guarantee of future performance, but it sure can be used to help verify one’s current rhetoric (or to find the wooden-nickels in whatever form).]

  35. Songbird John McCain is a disgrace to his uniform and unfit to serve. His legacy will be one of betrayals – first in captivity when he betrayed his uniform and second when he betrayed is position as senator to collude with Obama’s IRS and target his political opposition. If only we could blame his malfeasance on his brain tumor but we cannot – John McCain is simply another vile, corrupt, lying, self-seeking dirty politician.

    Then along came Trump and when he said, “John McCain is NOT a war hero”, I was startled into researching, because the truth is I would have believed Trump if Trump said the earth is flat! THEN I became woke because I happened, totally by chance, upon the Conservative Tree House. I will be forever grateful to Sundance, FOREVER! That is THE most life-changing event of my 83 years.
