The IRS is out of control.

-It intentionally and maliciously targeted conservative groups and leaked confidential taxpayer information to Leftist allies;

-IRS officials threw lavish parties for themselves, spending millions of dollars even as Americans struggled to keep their jobs and pay their taxes;

-Pro-life and Christian groups report extreme and intrusive demands, including one reported demand that a pro-life group promise not to picket Planned Parenthood;

-The IRS conducted mass-scale audits of adoptive families, auditing 100,000 in 2011 alone – simply because they adopted a child.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. New investigations reveal new abuses every day.

It’s time to reform the tax code. It’s time to abolish the IRS.

IRS Admits Targeting “Tea Party” and “Patriot” Groups for Harassment in 2012 Election

IRS Admits Targeting “Tea Party” and “Patriot” Groups for Harassment in 2012 Election

Tea Party Patriots Reject Apology, Demand Resignations

and Insist on Investigation

Lewiston Idaho/Clarkston WA– Today the Tea Party Patriots, the nation’s largest tea party organization, rejected the apology by the IRS for targeting tax-exempt groups for further review during the 2012 election cycle and demanded the immediate resignations of all of those involved in the deliberate harassment of Tea Party Patriots and similar groups. News reports indicated today that Lois Lerner, who oversees tax-exempt groups at the IRS, blamed the targeting of organizations that included the words “tea party” or “patriot” in their tax-exempt applications on “low-level workers in Cincinnati.”

The IRS has demonstrated the most disturbing, illegal and outrageous abuse of government power,” said Dianne Capps, Washington State Tea party Coordinator

This deliberate targeting and harassment of tea party groups reaches a new low in illegal government activity and overreach. It is suspicious that the activity of these ‘low-level workers’ was unknown to IRS leadership at the time it occurred. President Obama must also apologize for his administration ignoring repeated complaints by these broad grassroots organizations of harassment by the IRS in 2012, and make concrete and transparent steps today to ensure this never happens again. We reject a simple apology that does nothing to alleviate the danger of this happening again. Only immediate and public actions on the part of the IRS and the president will suffice.

We demand the immediate resignation of all complicit in this activity and insist Congress investigate.”

Tea Party Patriotsis a national grassroots coalition with more than 3,400 locally organized chapters and more than 15 million supporters nationwide.  Tea Party Patriots is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting the principles of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets.  Visit Tea Party Patriots online at

IRS’s Tea Party Scrutiny Adds To Conservatives’ Case Against Obama

Benghazi move over, make room for IRS-gate.As if the Obama administration’s conservative critics didn’t have enough fodder with last year’s attacks on a U.S. Consulate that killed four Americans, now comes Friday’s startling revelation that Internal Revenue Service workers between 2010 and 2012 singled out groups with “Tea Party” and “Patriots” in their name for extra scrutiny of their applications for tax-exempt status.
And this is from NPR. Good for them!

Presentation on Common Core by Sharon Hanek


aka Research Mom

Common core speaking event
When: June 8th 3PM
Cost : $10.00
Where: Lewiston Community Center
Address: 621 21st Street Lewiston Idaho

Sharon Hanek is an accountant, community volunteer, wife, and mother who entered politics first as a citizen activist then as a public policy advisor to legislators and the grassroots. Over the past ten years she has spent many hours in Olympia during session testifying on bills and discussing issues with legislators from both sides of the aisle.

Sharon has been a watchdog over education issues for over 20 years. She began by attending meetings, researching publications, and using the “Freedom of Information Act” to gain access to documents. Her research in education led her into the world of fuzzy math, radical environmentalism, the systematic dismantling of social values and the election process.

Not being able to stay quiet about her findings, she began a state-wide speaking tour to educate citizens and advise groups on effective strategies to take back our government. Some of the changes in the assessment system of Washington State and in the teaching of math is a result of concerned parents from around the State becoming involved. She believes that citizens getting involved CAN change our state around and is committed to helping others learn to have a stronger voice in local and state government.

Sharon recently used her statewide “network” to become the first ever Washington State-wide candidate to win a write-in primary election in her bid for the Washington State Office of State Treasurer.
