A California tea party group sued the IRS on Monday.

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

Pushback: A California tea party group sued the IRS on Monday for its harassment of conservatives.



  • D. K. Williams

    I would love to sit in on these depositions.

  • JGL

    “Lois Lerner, the head of the exempt organizations division of the IRS, won’t answer questions about what she knew about the improper screening – or why she didn’t reveal it to Congress, according to a letter from her defense lawyer, William W. Taylor 3rd.”

    These actions are being characterized by the administration as “mistakes”, a mistake is when you misfile a form and your mistake costs someone a bit of time as you either find your mistake or new paper work is filed. The willful, organized and purposeful denial of a citizens rights to further a particular political party’s agenda and or to intimidate and foil them is a crime.

    I have a feeling there are going to be many subpoenas and many claims of 5th amendment rights in the coming future.
