Lack of Transparency continues

By:  Diane Benjamin The City of Bloomington can’t legally withhold documents that existed before the State Police announced their investigation, but they are trying to keep me from finding the truth anyway.  Did they really think I wouldn’t write about it? I filed a FOIA request for the all General Ledger Accounts pertaining to Sister […]

IRS: Your food is taxable!

By:  Diane Benjamin Should all the “business” breakfasts and lunches consumed by staff and the elected be called additional compensation, and therefore taxed? When only the “preferred” aldermen ever consume, how can the City claim they have a “legitimate business purpose” as defined by law?  What is the “legitimate purpose” for last Monday’s pizza party, […]

IRS Auditing 2 men who spoke against ObamaCare

BOTH got letters from the IRS on the SAME day!  Illinois’s own C. Steven Tucker, who got a cancer patients insurance re-instated,  is one of them – the cancer patient the other.  IRS is obviously still being used by the Obama administration as a weapon. CANCER PATIENT WHO SAYS OBAMACARE CANCELED HIS HEALTH INSURANCE NOW […]

Abolish the IRS

The time has come to abolish the IRS as we know it. It has proven that it is incapable of governing itself. Consider recent events: The IRS 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 […]

IRS Protest: Noon Today UPDATE UPDATE!

The IRS has added extra protection for today’s events!  Since they believe CITIZENS standing up to tyranny are terrorists, they are prepared for trouble.  Evidently they have no respect for the 1st Amendment or We The People! Of course, this is a non violent protest.  Spread the word – especially to government!   301 S Prospect – […]

Of course Obama knew

by:  Diane Benjamin Think back to 2009.  Obama was swept into office by a troubled electorate determined to end the GOP domination.  Everything was George Bush’s fault, but that’s another story.

Most notably, it owes its remarkable exceptionalism and the durability of its experiment to the men who founded it. With a penetrating prescience, these men grasped better than any before them the true nature of man, […]

from 2010 Huffington Post article:  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/10/05/crossroads-gps-irs-investigation-_n_750771.html Excerpts: The IRS has also come under increasing pressure from Democrats to act against conservative or GOP-allied groups, placing the tax agency in an awkward position of being dragged into a political fight. Last week, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Democrat Max Baucus of Montana, called on […]
