I am the Face of the Obama IRS Attacks

We are dealing with a modern-day Nixon.

The IRS just admitted to targeting and intimidating conservative and Tea Party groups. But why? The answer- the IRS thought a quick apology and throwing a few “low level employees” under the bus could nip it in the bud and make it all go away. They’re wrong. This will be one of the biggest scandals in U.S. political history- if the media does their job.

This IRS scandal is a threat to everything America stands for. It’s why we fought a revolution against King George. It’s one of the main ways the left brought down Richard Nixon- they accused Nixon of targeting political opponents with IRS attacks to intimidate and silence them. These attacks were prominently included in Nixon’s “Articles of Impeachment” and should be in Obama’s too- if the media does their job. 

How do I know?

Because I am the face of Obama’s IRS attacks. I am proof of how bad it is, when it started, that it was directed at individuals as well as groups, and that it did not involve only “low level IRS employees.” 

It did not involve only “low level IRS employees.” It did not happen in only one year (2012). It does not involve one office in Cincinnati. It was a widespread attack (mine emanated from the Las Vegas IRS office). It goes to the top of the IRS, it started early in Obama’s Presidency, and you can bet your last dollar that it was all conducted upon direct orders of the Obama White House. 

Most importantly, I’m living proof it was directed at individuals- with the intent of ruining our lives. It almost ruined mine.

Here is my personal story. I’m a small businessman, but also a national media personality with a megaphone. I’m an outspoken critic of Obama. My views are seen by millions on Fox News Channel, and read at conservative web sites like

The result? In January, 2011 an unprecedented IRS attack was launched against me. My personal story of IRS attack was covered extensively by conservative media.

In 30 years of doing business, I’ve had a spotless tax record. And I had never heard a peep from the IRS. The attack was so over-zealous and out of bounds, I was forced to hire one of this nation’s top tax attorneys, who took my case to court where we won a 100% victory. My relief at being vindicated lasted FIVE DAYS. Then the IRS announced a new tax audit against me.  

My attorney had never heard of such a thing and, before me, assumed it wasn’t possible. The many legal and accounting experts (who drained my savings) all agreed this could only happen if I was on “Obama Enemies List.”

The attack was chilling and intimidating, affecting every aspect of my life. It was meant to bleed me dry, and teach me a lesson- if you dare to criticize Obama, get ready to lose everything. 

If you think it was just myself or a few Tea Party groups targeted, I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. I’ve done the research. The IRS targeted more than just groups- they targeted outspoken opponents of Obama and large GOP donors. And you can bet neither IRS agents, nor their IRS bosses, would take such actions without specific directions from Obama’s White House.   

This is all a pattern. See what Obama and Hillary (his Secretary of State) have done to the whistleblowers and members of the CIA and military who know what truly happened in Benghazi. See General Petraeus and his affair.  Given his continued silence, I can only imagine what other threats Obama is holding over his head.

Or take the rating agencies who downgraded the credit of America. Both were indicted by the federal government soon after daring to confirm America’s economic decline under Obama.

In my new bestselling book, “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide,” I disclose how Obama is purposely implementing the plan of two Columbia University professors to overwhelm America’s economic system with massive spending, entitlements and debt, in order to destroy capitalism, bankrupt business owners (ie conservative donors) and incite crisis (that always leads to bigger government). It is a plan Obama learned at Columbia using the tactics from Saul Alinsky’s book “Rules for Radicals.” That book encourages distortion, lies, and intimidation- because “the ends justify the means.” 

How do I know this is a purposeful plan? Because I was Obama’s Columbia University Class of ’83 classmate, while we were being taught this specific plan. Now you know why he was so interested in intimidating and silencing me.

This IRS scandal gets bigger by the day. The latest development is that top IRS officials and lawyers were in fact aware of this scandal since 2011 (the very year I was targeted).

It gets worse. It turns out the IRS was targeting Pro-Israel Jewish groups. It’s now gone from political targeting to racism and anti-semitism.

“Enough is Enough.” It’s time our elected representatives in Congress find the courage to face up to Obama’s culture of lies, cover-ups and criminal intimidation. Nixon was forced from office for a combination of Watergate and IRS attacks on opponents. It’s time for Congress to act against a President who has the exact same combination- Benghazi (which involves murder, not burglary) and unconstitutional IRS attacks.

Obama deserves the same fate– IMPEACHMENT!
