Was the IRS used as a weapon against Glenn?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

The IRS has been under fire this week for all kinds of abuses of power – from targeting the Tea Party to targeting professors, it appears they operated with political motivations. Was the IRS even used to target Glenn Beck?

In 2010, Glenn told listeners, “Last year I was audited. I owed exactly zero to the IRS. I overpay my taxes. I have for years because when in doubt, give it to them. I don’t want to hear from IRS agents. But I heard from them. Wonder if I’ll hear from them again. Wouldn’t that be a weird coincidence? By the way, Pat, you were audited, weren’t you? Isn’t that a weird thing.”

Yes, Pat Gray was audited too. As did Editor-in-Chief for TheBlaze Scott Baker. Weird.

“It’s very odd,” Stu said. “It’s so interesting because they can use this as a weapon so easily. I got a letter in the mail about a month ago that said that I owed $650, or something like that from a year or two ago taxes. And look, my initial reaction to that letter was, write a check and send it to them. Like that’s what I thought. That’s what I was going to do and I thought, I should at least send it to my accountant and see what she thinks about it. And she looked at it and said, no, you don’t owe this money. You’ve paid this already. I would have just paid it.”

“How many times are they doing that around the country?” Stu said.

    Stop the paranoia GB! Many businesses and people get audited regularly, especially if they are big like you (your enterprise make millions each day). I will feel bad if they audit a regular guy that only makes $50K a year, but you and others need to stop wining. However, targeting people or groups because they are liberal or conservative is WRONG! and we must raise our voices against that. However, 501c4 organizations are growing too rapidly and many of them don’t do what they suppose to be doing for getting that special treatment on taxes. The IRS needs to continue to audit those groups, both liberal and conservative, but we also need to continue to audit big businesses like yours. There is a lot of crap going on in businesses too.

You puke of a jerk..it is called targeting..those whom ever is in power can target people they don’t agree with? YOU need to educate yourself a little..this is different!  made to wait from 3 to 1 1/2 for years approval??  Just think what would have happened, with the IRS having the power as they will over Obamacare! THINK…do we really want the IRS to have that kind of control! What they can do to Christians or any group when anyone is in power..the fact is known, “ultimate power corrupts ultimately!!”

     Pachy, The IRS has admitted to targeting Conservatives. Obama has admitted as much. Groups applying for 501c4 status, that had any word in their name that was construed to be Conservative leaning, were hammered. Liberal groups were not. “The IRS apologized Friday for targeting of tea party and conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status.” Acting Director, Steven Miller, has been fired. But Beck is spreading “paranoia”?
    The facts here, no matter how inconvenient they are to you, are clearly stated by the Obama administration and in the apology of the IRS. Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2013/05/14/see-the-questions-the-irs-used-to-probe-theteaparty-net/#ixzz2TUbXi528

    I’m not trying to give the liberal party a pass card here, but only during the time of the first organized KKK was the liberal party the most represented party. When the KKK reemerged in the early twentieth century, they were staunchly conservative. Membership was only possible for those who were white, protestant males. They were anti-Jew, anti-black, and anti anything not in line with their strict beliefs. According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, the word liberal means “Open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values.” I don’t think anyone in the KKK was willing to do that. And one would be mindful to remember the cynical truth that corruption lies with every member of Congress. They have checks and balances but no one to answer to in the sense we do. If they do something we don’t like, all we can do is vote them out, we can’t have them arrested for causing harm in our daily lives or anything of the sort.

    Actually, we need to repeal the 16th and 17th Amendments and go back to the way the Constitution was set up before Woodrow Wilson and his group pushed them through, effedtively destroying states-rights and giving the government unlimited power through taxation. After repealing these amendments, get rid of the Federal Reserve. Does that sound crazy or Jeffersonian?

    I believe that the IRS scandal runs much deeper than just targeting conservative organizations who have applied for tax exempt status.   We were given the most unfair, unfounded and disgustingly invasive audit and could not understand it.  We are on quite a few conservative donor lists such as The Tea Party, The Tea Party Express, and The Heritage Foundation..I now believe this is the reason we were chosen for the audit and imagine that we are far from the only individuals who were targeted because we are conservatives.

     Please don’t continue to beat the drum about the “flat tax” or any other alternative taxing scheme until you study it.  For instance, take your gross income from last year’s  tax return and multiply by .17 (17% flat tax seems to be the most commonly used number the past few years) and see what you get.  Compare that result with the amount of tax you actually paid.  Maybe, for you, the results are very similar.  Maybe you even get something of a break.  Great for you!

    However, for some of us, working poor who ARE fully taxed under the current system (at the federal level, we have only the Standard Deduction and the standard Personal Credit to claim against Adjusted Gross Income – and we get NO other goodies at all) and who do NOT suck at the federal, state, or local teats in any way, the massive increase represented by the 17% figure would be ruinous – especially when combined next year with the Medical Industry Welfare and Bailout Tax).

    And don’t, for a New York second, think that you’ll EVER get rid of the IRS.  Ain’t gonna happen.  Ever.  You can bank on that.

  • DE Navarro

    Everyone audited should come forward.  Also, every non-profit should come forward and detail their experience and what they were asked to do and how long it took to get approved if they did.  Then we should compare the notes to see who was asked more questions and put through more rigamarole and for how long.  Once we have the total picture, I’ll bet that all politically right leaning groups were harassed and had their applications extended for long periods and all the left leaning were swiftly approved without hassle.  Then, THE ENTIRE IRS should be fired and staffed with totally new people.

    Our experiences with the IRS hasn’t been fun, try complaining to Patty Murray or Maria Cantwell, when you don’t believe in the Obama experience, you get audited.  With every letter we have written to them about the Health care or taxes etc., we received love letters from the IRS.  Of course we hear from Patty and Maria trying to explain why the Health Care and etc would be so much better that we have given up.  Murray and Cantwell do not listen to the people in Washington state,  King County is owned by the liberals.

    Worked with a gal a number of years ago. She was in the Navy, came out as not straight, and was not allowed to ship over. The first four years after she was discharged (honorably) she was audited every year. The year we were working together she was in the process of suing the IRS for harassment. An occasional audit is one thing, but when you get more than one in a lifetime, and are not a criminal or major tax cheat, and making less that $48,000 per year, there is NO reason other than harassment. 

    Enact a 5% national sales tax on a sliding scale to be at 2% within 5 years, and do away with all the other taxes and the IRS.

    We need a NATIONAL SALES TAX.  That would complletely eliminate the IRS in  private lives.  The only thing they could do was keep track of businesses.
    We need a National Referendum to accomplish this, and it needs to be started by some people who are fairly young.  It’s going to take guts and stamina.
    Just think, you’d earn $1,000 and you’d take home $1,000.  “Rich people” would naturally pay more in taxes – because they spend more…

    I’ll never forget an audit my parents got when I was a child, around 1963. My father worked construction and was out of work maybe a month or so a year while waiting for work. He made at that time about $7k a year. Add in caring for a family of four and all the costs of life, there wasn’t much left over. Our family had no vacations, really no extras, even had hand me down clothes from neighbors. I still remember the letter calling my parents to audit, it was like the Gestapo telling you your papers were incorrect and telling you to come to the torture building. I remember them searching everywhere to make sure they had all of the receipts. They would come back from those meetings, drained. In the end they were actually told by the auditor that there was nothing wrong with their return but his supervisor would not expect that. So the auditor settled on the lowest figure he could charge my parents $321. That may sound like not a lot but that year both my brother and I had to do with a little less. No new shoes, got to find out how low the tread went on Keds, more than just a few meatless suppers, wear the tires on the car to threads, if sick just take some asprin, the doctor can wait for another time, and so on. I know this is a long story and I realize there were those worse off, maybe a lot, I don’t know but it really affected our lives for at least a year. And I was reminded of this from these scandals and I also think about obama with all of his million dollar vacations and fancy living, then I remember what it was like to be lower middle to lower class and how hard my parents worked, well all I can say is we are ruled by a king who cares not a whit for people, especially my people- Traditional Americans.

    Well I believe we can get rid of the IRS by getting rid of the tax code as it exists and just go to a flat tax for all.  No loop holes, no nothing.  Perhaps the tax could be set at 10% for example.  If you make a dollar you get taxed 10cents.  If you’re like Bill Gates and have something like 35 BILLION you pay 3.5 BILLION.  Perhaps the 10% could be 8% or something but should not be over 10%.  The liberals call for equality and you can’t be more fair than that and everyone pays “Their fair share” as they keep  screaming about.  Bye-bye IRS.  No more huge IRS police organization.  Think about how much money the government could save by not having to support that huge policeing deparment.  No salaries and benefits (like the $103,000 in bonuses paid to the woman who is now in charge of the IRS leg of Obamacare), no buildings to maintain, utilities, or any other costs associated with maintaining the IRS…saving BILLIONS, maybe even TRILLIONS.  Then we can go through all the other departments in the government and determine their real need and clean them up.  I suspect with the savings we could get rid of our national debt in just a few years after everything is cleaned up.  Thus giving our next generation a new start on life.

    Stop the paranoia folks! We all hate the IRS and mistrust them, but taxes have to be paid. Its in our Constitution! No one likes to pay taxes, but it is the law. Our cities and towns benefit from taxes in order to serve the citizens. We all want changes to our tax code and making it more easy and efficient will be a good way to start, but promoting a “flat tax” will always affect the needy and empower the wealthy. Therefore, I support progressive taxation cause big business will always find a way to cheat on taxes. They know all the tricks in the books, plus they have the Lawyers and Accountants with the knowledge and power. When big business and people like Mitt Romney, Wall St., and others stop putting money away in the Cayman Islands and other tax havens, then we can talk about reform. Reform won’t work if it is only for a few.

    What many of you don’t get is that, Yes, the Democrats were the party of the KKK and slavery back in the days (that’s in our history books), but all the racists and crazies of those days switch to the GOP after the 1960s and they became Republican governors and Republican congressmen in the South, so things didn’t change much after Brown vs. Board of Education. I still travel to the South occasionally and they still look at me like I was an alien or some kind of weirdo. There have been progress and that’s good, but we still have a long way to go, because the new racism is now quiet and mixed with other political and social approaches. However, American still the best country in the World and we be fine. Am not looking for perfection, but respect and compassion. That’s what Jesus will call us for . . .

    U can’t fire a President folks. He needs to be impeached. And to go there, we need more evidence OUR President was directly involved like B. Clinton with his “lover” in the WH. Am sure we would need to impeach almost everyone in congress as well cause there is a lot of corruption going on in that chamber. Until we get rid of lobbists and special interests like the Tea Party, MOVE ON, American for Prosperity, The Heritage Foundation, Freedom Works, and others, we would never get rid of the “dirty work” in our Govt.

    An exclusive report by Reuters news agency raises questions about repeated break-ins and lax security at the West Fertilizer Co. plant despite 11 reports of burglaries there over the past 12 years. Reuters reporters obtained 911 dispatch logs and criminal offense reports from the McLennan County sheriff’s office in Waco, and the results are pretty shocking. This is excellent reporting work and contributes important information about the chain of events that led to the massive explosion in West. 

    The law enforcement records indicate persistent problems at West Fertilizer with thieves who would break into the plant to steal anhydrous ammonia, which can be used in the production of methamphetamine. The thieves tampered with valves on West Fertilizer’s anhydrous ammonia tanks, causing dangerous leaks. One report indicated thefts were occurring in 2002 at a rate of once every three days. 

    This is a News story the media has totally ignored almost 100%. So question remains: Who is stealing this stuff and why? Second question is why the Fed’s and Homeland Security are not talking? Look at reports from different State Agencies in other States.

    Reason I ask is rumor has it little farm town I live in was hit? Its a small Town where people talk since usually they have nothing better to do. With tons of this being stolen do we have a problem Federal Government and what is the Agenda of those stealing it you failed to warn the public about? 

     Is it being stolen to make drugs or do we have another potential nutcase rogue militia group in the wind out there? Not just in Texas, every State including Florida. 
     Reason so many in America do not trust the Government is #$%$ like this, #$%$ like the IRS, #$%$ like all the other stuff coming to surface now. If our Government wants to shut the public up, who by our Constitution has a right to ask and a right to know then our Government needs to for once in years tell the truth. 

    I’m not even going to throw this one at Obama who has the tight agenda of golf games and speeches. Sure he promised transparency. No, this one falls on Homeland Security, who spends more time frisking our Elders and Babies, telling States how to run their States than on the real problems. Hell, perhaps the White House can blame this one on Bush since it was his brainchild to create the Agency. My simple question is there any agency in our Federal Government that actually does it’s job? Or are we paying all those tax dollars to fund fancy vacations in Hawaii and lie through their teeth? 

    And while the News media is #$%$ about the spanking they got from Obama’s Feds I’d like the media to answer us 99% out here why none of this never made headlines? That goes for Fox also who claims a motto based on fair and balanced. 

    And while the GOP keeps asking why our Diplomats were not protected this inquiring mind wants to ask the GOP and the Democrats why they cannot protect us citizens better and make sure we who are the eyes and ears in most communities are not informed better? 

    What difference does it make? It makes a lot of difference to us average Joe’s and Jane’s who might get hurt or killed in the next version of OKC and Boston?
    The IRS is the tip of a very large ice burg. What I posted yesterday is just another tip. Over the past few months as many know Home Land Security has been buying up around 2 million rounds of hollow point ammo. Cannot use such ammo in any foreign war do to international law. No one in the media is asking why. Last night on Glen Beck a guy who lives in Missouri called in about two interesting things. Missouri is one of the State with many thefts of Fertilizer. The two facts are he lives near a rail. Usually he sees Military cargo being shipped east for overseas like Humvee’s, etc. Lately he has seen nothing but solid green painted Humvee’s and Urban Assault vechicles on the tracts going East and West. He also mentioned that a large amount of Home Land Security agents are now in his area of that State. No one in the media is asking what is going on with that activity. Add in the fact that by their own admittal they spy on every American Citizen. No one in the media pushes that issue even though it basically violates that same admendment the media thinks was violated in their case. So question remains is what do they know that they are getting ready for that we the American Public who the Government works for does not know? If you connect the dots I might suggest we have far greater problems than who the IRS held up, and the Arabs overseas, what drugs are legalized, what Monsanto is up to, who’s preaching in Church next Sunday, etc. You think the economy is bad now. Let’s speculate some well organized radical American group is behind those thefts and that the buildup in arms at Homeland Security is they know them so called Good Old Boys are about to declare a bit of backwoods country justice for whatever reason they seem to have on the good old Federal Government. With the tons of fertilzer stolen think of OKC multiplied many fold and you begin to see why they need the ammo and all the fancy assault equiptment. Think of what happened in Boston with the lock down applied to the whole country or large portions all at once. Guess what there goes the economy to a grinding hault if that is the case. You cannot tell me no one in the media has picked up on this. They sat on a story because the White House asked them to and then got in trouble when they decided to print the story ahead of the Government admitting it was true. Want to bet they sat on this one? Either that are they are dumber than a rock.

    That by the way is why so many Homeland Security people in one State.  You have to dig to get the truth.  Start with that State’s own government memos on the subject, then go search about Kansas, Florida, Oklohoma, Texas, etc.

    By the way I am a Libertarian which means I totally stand behind the Constitution.  I support freedom of the Press, of Speech, the right to bear arms, etc.  I think our greatest weaphon is not our guns at all.  Our best defense is our right to hire and fire the Bums in Washington on both sides via our Vote.  Glen on the radio said we need an Independent Agency to look into all this with some form of public oversight.  We also need honest American’s to get off the collective asses, get informed, do your own research, and start firing every last member of Congress who will not stand up and uphold our Constitution.  We the People are the true rulers of this Country.  The Jerks in Government work for us.  We the people are the ones sitting by with our thumbs up our butts allowing this to happen.  The only reason there is an 1% out there pulling all the strings is because us 99% of the rest of the Country allows them to get away with it.  I remember Glen asking what happens when we no longer trust our Government?  Might better ask what happens when we the People get dumb enough to allow the Government to get to the point we cannot trust it?  I’ll tell you what happens.  You get what you see going on in this Nation right now.  You also leave a door open for real radicals to start a fight none of the rest of us common people are going to come out unhurt from.  As bad as our Government is once you lose law and order no one wins.

    As people say history repeat itself it’s going on here now what happen in Nazi Germany with the Jewish people and Blacks & other groups certain laws for that groups like not allowing them to own guns and sending them off to work camps ! Now obama and his crowd are doing this in a more sneaky  way  by stealth ways of treating opposition groups to silence them and to put them to death .. The way they’re doing this by discriminatory way they enforce the laws ,regulations,rules, for opposition groups and treat obama minions and Muslims like royalty they’re above the law !!  Now instead of passing laws in the open for a specific group like the Nazi  to silence them and have control ,obama just enforce the law exceptional  hard  on them ,by stealth not a law written for a certain group !!!  Now for the Nazi sending certain groups off to the death camps ,now obama  will be doing it quietly in a stealth individual mode any one in opposition to him will have delay treatment, not eligible, bury in paper work won’t pay for your treatment  even though you have another good twenty years when other people of same age getting operation ????  Now the Nazi send groups to death camps now obama putting his opposition in enemies camps of the state to set the precedent  ,so all the state agencies service in local area of individuals  will treat them unfairly and even sentence them to a early death from delay treatment etc to get rid of them in a stealthy  matter !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Too much power in government and in one department is subject to major abuse !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Here’s something that Beck, for some reason seems (I may have missed it) to be ignoring. One of the phrases used to determine which 501 (c) 4 applications would be reviewed was “9/12,” the name of Beck’s pet project. About 12 of them were reviewed because it is a violation of tax-free status rules for one of these groups to send money to any person, and the IRS wanted to make sure that these groups were not collecting money to send to Beck. There weren’t.

    Meanwhile, this issue with the IRS is not a “scandal;” the media is lying, and that certainly includes Mr. Beck.

    But no one here cares that Beck is a liar! In fact, no one here can even fathom that possibility.
