There is a new Obama IRS campaign to kill the conservative movement with proposed regulations and paperwork. You can do something about it.
Judicial Watch recently launched a new web initiative to allow conservatives and conservative organizations to voice their objections to new Obama regulations that would prevent them from carrying out their core missions in the months leading up to federal, state, and local elections. Many organizations are taking actions–from Judicial Watch to, believe it or not, the ACLU–to stop this assault on free speech.
The administration dismisses these new policies and procedures as mere “tweaking” of the language in existing federal regulations. But, as I explained weeks ago, this “tweaking” is sinister in its intent. The purpose is to destroy the conservative movement in the United States. (Click here to review a thorough discussion on the language changes and what they mean.)
Here’s our message in a nutshell:
President Obama’s Internal Revenue Service has quietly announced new rules… seemingly designed to silence the growing conservative grassroots and Tea Party movement in America. Our First Amendment rights are in jeopardy. Please join us in fighting back now!
These new IRS rules will:
- Keep citizens from holding their public officials accountable
- Silence citizens and chill the very purpose of grassroots groups
Tell the IRS:
- It is impractical, burdensome and unacceptable for the IRS to interject itself into the inner workings of every citizens’ group in the country
- The IRS is supposed to be collecting revenues, not snooping and trampling on the First Amendment rights of citizens
- American citizens don’t need permission from the IRS in order to be active in grassroots movements
- To stop unfairly attacking the Tea Party and other 501(c)(4) groups
The IRS is now allowing public comments on these rule changes. So, if you’re as outraged by this as I am, please click here and submit your comment. (If you like, for reference, you can visit our campaign webpage to see some sample comments. You can also view the letter JW sent to the Office of Management and Budget registering our objections.) You must submit your comments by Thursday, February 27th!
Remember, President Obama called for a “year of action” during his State of the Union speech. He, of course, was referring to his delusional belief that he can operate outside of the U.S. Constitution and impose his will via executive fiat. We, however, can use it as a rallying cry to take whatever actions we can to stop him.
