    Federal court rebukes IRS for 'tea party' targeting, orders release of secret list...

    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 Departmentlawyers, who are representing the IRS in the case, of acting in bad faith — compounding the initial targeting — by fighting the disclosure.

    No one will be held accountable here. We had hours and hours of hearings for two years on this issue.
    The politicians feigned outrage and thumped their chests, but in the end , despite damning e-mails and
    destroyed hard drives, (sound familiar?), the DOJ declined to press charges against the head of IRS,
    Lois Lerner. She later resigned with a full pension.

    Perhaps even more disgusting than the lack of personal accountability is the fact that if the Tea Party
    Patriots prevail in this lawsuit, any monetary settlement will be paid with taxpayer dollars.

    The Teaparty was the only thing that would have saved America but was destroyed from all sides and every angle.
    Unlike Trump it had no voice of defence.

    The tea party destroyed itself.

    Whether you agree with Tea Party politics or not is not the point. The government using the IRS to target
    individuals or groups for their political activism is wrong.
