Wayne Allyn Root: I Am The Face Of The Obama IRS Attacks - Impeachment
We are dealing with a modern-day Richard Nixon. Except in this case, it’s a radical Marxist Nixon who hates his own country, capitalism and American values and who wants to obliterate his political opposition.
The Internal Revenue Service admitted last week 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.
The IRS is wrong. This will be one of the biggest scandals in U.S. political history — if the media do 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 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.
No, it did not involve only low-level IRS employees. 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. It did not happen in only one year (2012). It does not involve one office in Cincinnati. It was a widespread attack. (My IRS attack emanated from the Las Vegas IRS office.)
Most importantly, I’m living proof it was directed at individuals — with the intent of ruining our lives.
It almost ruined mine. This is important because the American public needs to see the faces of the targets. I have a wife and four children. I didn’t deserve this.
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 websites like TheBlaze and FoxNews.com. And in almost every media appearance, it’s pointed out that I’m Obama’s Columbia class of ’83 classmate. You don’t think Obama noticed?
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 overzealous 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 percent 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 happen only if I was on Obama’s enemies list.
The attack was chilling and intimidating, affecting every aspect of my life. It was meant to bleed me dry and to teach me a lesson: If you dare to criticize Obama, get ready to lose everything. If you think it was just me or a few Tea Party groups targeted, I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
This IRS scandal gets bigger by the day. The latest developments are that top IRS officials and lawyers were, in fact, aware of this scandal since 2011 (the very year I was targeted by the IRS). What a surprise; Wayne is right.
And it was not just in Cincinnati; IRS offices in California and Washington, D.C., were involved. What a surprise; Wayne is right. Add Las Vegas to the list and, I’m betting, every other IRS office in this country.
Business leaders may have been targeted by the IRS, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the U.S. Department of Labor. What a surprise; Wayne was right. I’m betting many other business leaders just like me were attacked for speaking out.
It gets worse. The IRS was targeting pro-Constitution groups. Pro-Constitution? In Obamageddon, if you support the Constitution, you’re an enemy of the state. What state is that? Mother Russia? Cuba? Folks, we are dealing with Marxists in the White House.
I told you so. I tried to warn everyone in my new book, The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide, that we are dealing with a Marxist idealogue who hates capitalism, hates and resents businessmen, despises American and Judeo-Christian values, and wants to shred the U.S. Constitution. Why do you think Obama became a Constitutional lawyer? He studied the Constitution so he could learn how to destroy it.
But it gets even worse. It turns out the IRS was targeting pro-Israel Jewish groups. It’s now gone from political targeting to racism, anti-Semitism and religious intolerance.
This scandal is widespread. It is deep within the IRS. But I don’t blame the IRS. These career bureaucrats were ordered to attack Obama’s opponents. They felt their careers and pensions were at risk if they didn’t listen to direct orders from the President. Or do you believe IRS agents and their bosses took it upon themselves to target the President’s opponents or to target specific religions? How absurd. These are Obama’s orders.
This is all part of a pattern of Chicago-thug politics. See what Obama and Hillary Clinton have done to the whistle-blowers and members of the CIA and military who know what truly happened in Benghazi, Libya. See Gen. David 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.
Enough is enough. Nixon was threatened with impeachment and forced out of office for covering up a third-rate burglary. President Bill Clinton faced impeachment for a third-rate sexual affair. Obama has committed first-rate crimes. Benghazi is Watergate with four dead American heroes.
And this brazen IRS attack makes Nixon look like a nice guy. Can you imagine if Nixon would’ve dared target Jewish pro-Israel groups? The media would have burned him at the stake. Can you imagine if George W. Bush would’ve dared to target African-American activists?
It’s time our representatives in Congress find the courage to face up to Obama’s culture of lies, cover-ups and intimidation. They must take the action that Obama deserves for the Benghazi cover-up and these horrific unConstitutional IRS attacks meant to silence his critics.
Oh, and one more thing that needs to be pointed out: I wrote my new national best-seller The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide while being intimidated by the IRS. Sorry, Mr. Obama, but your plans backfired. You can’t stop a conservative patriot who loves God, country and family. Don’t even bother trying.
Will we survive Obama’s second term? I think we can. And I’ve explained how in my new, 450-page blockbuster national best-seller, The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide. I wrote it to show patriotic Americans how to survive, thrive and actually prosper from every move Obama makes for the next four years. Don’t get mad, that does nothing for you. Get even!
You can find my best-selling book, The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide, online at Amazon.com or at Costco, Barnes & Noble, Sam’s Club, Books-A-Million or any fine bookstore. Or you can buy it in e-book form to read on your favorite e-reader. You can find more information in the box right under this article. Just look for the bright yellow book cover of The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide to order your very own copy.
I’m Wayne Root for PersonalLiberty.com. See you next week. Same time, same place. God bless.

An Even Bigger Scandal: Why Are IRS Audits Being Used To Punish Obama’s Political Enemies?
By Michael, on May 15th, 2013
Is it right for Barack Obama to use IRS audits to punish his political enemies? As crazy as that sounds, there is a mounting body of evidence that indicates that this is actually happening. And if this can be proven, it is a much, much larger scandal than the IRS giving "extra scrutiny" to the applications of conservative non-profit groups. Let me be clear - if Barack Obama has been using IRS audits to punish his political enemies, that is an impeachable offense. Of all of the other scandals that are out there right now, this is the one that could actually bring down the presidency of Barack Obama. That is how serious this is. As you will read about below, there is a huge amount of circumstantial evidence that political enemies of Barack Obama have been singled out for IRS audits. We need to find out who initiated these audits. Whether you are a Republican, a Democrat or an Independent, this kind of abuse of government power should sicken and horrify you. If it can be proven that Barack Obama has been using IRS audits to attack his enemies, every single U.S. citizen should be calling for him to resign. This is something that is beyond politics - this is a direct threat to the very integrity of our system.
The recent revelation that the IRS has been specifically targeting patriot groups and Tea Party organizations for "extra scrutiny" has opened up the floodgates. In recent days, a large number of highly respected people have come forward claiming that they were the subject of IRS audits that were politically motivated.
For example, Larry Conners, a respected local news anchor at KMOV Channel 4 in St. Louis, Missouri says that he was hit with an IRS audit almost immediately after he conducted an interview with Barack Obama in April 2012...
Reverend Franklin Graham, the son of Reverend Billy Graham, recently wrote a letter to Barack Obama claiming that the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan's Purse were both hit with IRS audits very shortly after they ran full-page ads supporting North Carolina's Marriage amendment. In fact, both organizations were notified about the audits on the same day. The following is from a recent article posted on redstate.com...
Shortly after I did my April 2012 interview with President Obama, my wife, friends and some viewers suggested that I might need to watch out for the IRS.
I don't accept "conspiracy theories", but I do know that almost immediately after the interview, the IRS started hammering me.
At the time, I dismissed the "co-incidence", but now, I have concerns ... after revelations about the IRS targeting various groups and their members.
Originally, the IRS apologized for red-flagging conservative groups and their members if they had "Tea Party" or "patriot" in their name.
Today, there are allegations that the IRS focused on various groups and/or individuals questioning or criticizing government spending, taxes, debt or how the government is run ... any involved in limiting/expanding government, educating on the constitution and bill of rights, or social economic reform/movement.
In that April 2012 interview, I questioned President Obama on several topics: the Buffet Rule, his public remarks about the Supreme Court before the ruling on the Affordable Care Act. I also asked why he wasn't doing more to help Sen. Claire McCaskill who at that time was expected to lose. The Obama interview caught fire and got wide-spread attention because I questioned his spending.
I said some viewers expressed concern, saying they think he's "out of touch" because of his personal and family trips in the midst of our economic crisis.
The President's face clearly showed his anger; afterwards, his staff which had been so polite ... suddenly went cold.
That's to be expected, and I can deal with that just as I did with President George H. Bush's staff when he didn't like my questions.
Journalistic integrity is of the utmost importance to me. My job is to ask the hard questions, because I believe viewers have a right to be well-informed. I cannot and will not promote anyone's agenda - political or otherwise - at the expense of the reporting the truth.
What I don't like to even consider ... is that because of the Obama interview … the IRS put a target on me.
Can I prove it? At this time, no.
But it is a fact that since that April 2012 interview ... the IRS has been pressuring me.
You can find a full copy of Franklin Graham's letter to Barack Obama right here.
The man known as America’s pastor was among those targeted by the Internal Revenue Service after the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association ran newspaper advertisements promoting traditional marriage and biblical values.
“I am bringing this to your attention because I believe that someone in the Administration was targeting and attempting to intimidate us,” wrote Franklin Graham in a letter to President Obama. “This is morally wrong and unethical – indeed some would call it ‘un-American.’”
Graham is president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association as well as the international charity Samaritan’s Purse. Both organizations received word of audits on the same day – not long after they ran full –page ads supporting North Carolina’s Marriage amendment.
The ads encouraged voters to “cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel.”
The ad concluded with the words, “Vote for biblical values this November 6, and pray with me (Billy Graham) that America will remain one nation under God.”
Graham said on Sept. 6, 2012 they received notification that the IRS would audit their taxes.
“In light of what the IRS admitted to on Friday, May 10, 2013, and subsequent revelations from other sources, I do not believe that the IRS audit of our two organizations last year is a coincidence – or justifiable,” Graham wrote.
The Blaze is reporting on another example of this phenomenon. A respected Catholic professor that had written things critical of the Obama administration was hit with an IRS audit that she believes was politically motivated...
Unfortunately, these are not just isolated incidents. In fact, attorney Cleta Mitchell recently told Newsmax that she has seen a systematic pattern of politically motivated IRS harassment that only began once Barack Obama entered the White House...
On Wednesday, Dr. Anne Hendershott, a devout Catholic and a noted sociologist, professor and author, exclusively told The Blaze that she believes she may have been one of the IRS’s targets.
According to Hendershott, the IRS audited her in 2010 and demanded to know who was paying her and “what their politics were.”
It all started with a phone call she received at her home in May of that year — a call during which Hendershott was told she would be audited. A letter that followed on May 19, 2010 solidified the IRS’s request to meet her in person two months later in July.
There are some that have been trying to bring awareness to these politically motivated audits for quite some time. One of these individuals is a former classmate of Obama's named Wayne Allyn Root...
In the case of one such client, she and her family subsequently became targets for audits to their personal and business tax returns, and were even visited by three different government agencies. She also knows of other groups who had surprise visits from the FBI after they applied for IRS status.
Mitchell said she doesn't believe the president or the White House was uninvolved in the IRS activities, as the administration has claimed.
"I've thought for some time that this is politically motivated and that's the reason it was happening. And, as I said, I've been doing this for more than 20 years and I've never seen anything like this until 2009, 2010. And the only thing that changed was we had a different administration," she said.
“I feel like a million bucks. I feel absolutely vindicated. I knew this was going on,” Wayne Allyn Root told WND.In that same article, a number of other examples of this phenomenon were cited...
Root, the Libertarian Party vice-presidential candidate in 2008 who has claimed Obama was strangely unknown to him and his fellow Columbia University classmates, recounted his story to WND last October of becoming the target of unusual audits, beginning in January 2011, despite a “spotless” 30-year tax record.
He charged in October that the order to audit him came from Obama himself, and he is even more convinced now.
“I believe this is not rogue agents, who would be risking their pension and careers,” he said.
In October, Root said the order to audit him “must have come from the highest levels of government.”
“Obama is using the power of the IRS and other government agencies to punish his political opposition and intimidate and silence his critics,” Root charged at the time.
What happened to businessman Frank VanderSloot is particularly noteworthy. The following is from an article that Rob Bluey authoredlast year...
Last year, billionaire Frank VanderSloot became the target of investigations by both the IRS and the Labor Department after he gave $1 million to a super PAC that supported Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. The GOP’s biggest donor, Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, said a federal criminal investigation into his company’s business practices was politically motivated. Another casino giant, Steve Wynn, also has been investigated.
This week, Root has received many emails from people who identify as conservative and believe the IRS has been harassing them for political reasons.
No matter what you think of Obama's politics, shouldn't we all be deeply alarmed that he has an "enemies list"?
On April 20, President Obama’s campaign named VanderSloot to the first presidential “enemies list” since the Nixon era. Eight private citizens were singled out for their donations to Romney. They committed no crimes, sought no attention, and yet they became the subject of Obama’s scorn.
VanderSloot is now facing persecution from the federal government. Kimberly Strassel reveals in The Wall Street Journal that two federal agencies — the Internal Revenue Service and Labor Department — both launched investigations of VanderSloot after his name appeared on Obama’s enemies list.
With each passing day, the similarities between Barack Obama and Richard Nixon become more glaring.
And Obama has even joked about sending the IRS after people that he does not like. When Obama found out that he was not going to be receiving an honorary doctorate from Arizona State University, he made the following statement...
The IRS is not supposed to be used as a weapon, and the White House is not allowed to use information gathered by the IRS for political gain either. But apparently last year someone at the IRS was leaking tax information to someone within the Obama campaign. The following is from a recent article by Matt K. Lewis...
"President [Michael] Crowe and the Board of Regents will soon learn all about being audited by the IRS."
The IRS has been doing all sorts of things that they should not be doing. They are a rogue agency that is completely out of control.
A little over a year ago, I reported that, ”It is likely that someone at the Internal Revenue Service illegally leaked confidential donor information showing a contribution from Mitt Romney’s political action committee to the National Organization for Marriage, says the group.”
Now — on the heels of news the IRS’s apology for having targeted conservative groups — NOM is renewing their demand that the Internal Revenue Service reveal the identity of the people responsible.
“There is little question that one or more employees at the IRS stole our confidential tax return and leaked it to our political enemies, in violation of federal law,” said NOM’s president Brian Brow, in a prepared statement. “The only questions are who did it, and whether there was any knowledge or coordination between people in the White House, the Obama reelection campaign and the Human Rights Campaign. We and the American people deserve answers.”
In fact, one new lawsuit alleges that the IRS stole the health records of approximately 10 million Americans...
And guess what?
The Internal Revenue Service is now facing a class action lawsuit over allegations that it improperly accessed and stole the health records of some 10 million Americans, including medical records of all California state judges.
According to a report by Courthousenews.com, an unnamed HIPAA-covered entity in California is suing the IRS, alleging that some 60 million medical records from 10 million patients were stolen by 15 IRS agents. The personal health information seized on March 11, 2011, included psychological counseling, gynecological counseling, sexual/drug treatment and other medical treatment data. "This is an action involving the corruption and abuse of power by several Internal Revenue Service agents," the complaint reads. "No search warrant authorized the seizure of these records; no subpoena authorized the seizure of these records; none of the 10,000,000 Americans were under any kind of known criminal or civil investigation and their medical records had no relevance whatsoever to the IRS search. IT personnel at the scene, a HIPPA facility warning on the building and the IT portion of the searched premises, and the company executives each warned the IRS agents of these privileged records," it continued.
The IRS is going to be the primary government agency in charge of implementing Obamacare.
Will we soon see the IRS use health information to attack the political enemies of the man or woman sitting in the White House?
Unfortunately, thanks to new "Big Brother" technology that the IRS has been implementing, pretty soon there will be very little about us that the IRS does not know. The following is from a recent article by Richard Satran of U.S. News & World Report...
So what is the IRS going to do with all of this information?
Consumers are already familiar with Internet "cookies" that track their movements and send them targeted ads that follow them to different websites. The IRS has brought in private industry experts to employ similar digital tracking—but with the added advantage of access to Social Security numbers, health records, credit card transactions and many other privileged forms of information that marketers don't see.
"Private industry would be envious if they knew what our models are," boasted Dean Silverman, the agency's high-tech top gun who heads a group recruited from the private sector to update the IRS, in a comment reported in trade publications.
Well, the following are just a few of the things that they have already said that they plan to do with it...
• Charting and analyzing social media such as Facebook
• Targeting audits by matching tax filings to social media or electronic payments
• Tracking individual Internet addresses and emailing patterns
• Sorting data in 32,000 categories of metadata and 1 million unique "attributes"
• Machine learning across "neural" networks
• Statistical and agent-based modeling
• Relationship analysis based on Social Security numbers and other personal identifiers
So are you alarmed by all of this?
You should be.
As I discussed in my previous article entitled "100 Years Old And Still Killing Us: America Was Much Better Off Before The Income Tax", Congress should close the doors of the IRS and throw away the key. It is a deeply, deeply corrupt government agency that has gotten wildly out of control.
After what you have just read above, is there anyone out there that would disagree with me?

Will The IRS Allow Us To Die, Too?
May 23, 2013 by Wayne Allyn Root
The Internal Revenue Service scandal just gets bigger and bigger. No ordinary scandal, this is the very definition of an un-American, Joe McCarthy-style persecution. This is Gambino crime family criminal behavior. We now officially know America is being run by a gangster government, the Obama crime family.
The real question is: Will the same IRS (or IRS-like bureaucracy) that targeted and persecuted conservatives, GOP donors, Tea Party groups, pro-Israel Jewish groups, Christian groups, pro-life groups and outspoken critics of the President (like me), now use Obamacare to deny us medical care?
Will these same thugs use the process to frustrate, intimidate or slow it down just long enough to allow us to die?
Think I’m kidding? Exaggerating? TheIRS official who targeted and persecuted conservatives is the exact same executive assigned to oversee the IRS office of Obamacare. This couldn’t happen in a fictional horror movie without media critics charging it’s absurd and unrealistic.
This is the same IRS that asked questions such as:
- What books do your members read?
- What is the content of the prayers of your members?
- Please send us all your Facebook posts.
- Send us the list of your donors.
Now, it’s in charge of your healthcare.
Will the same litmus test be in place? Before granting approval for expensive medical treatment, will we be asked what groups we belong to, what books we read and what is the content of our prayers? Will they look at our Facebook postings before deciding if we’re worthy of receiving expensive medical care?
Just as the groups who dared to teach American citizens about the U.S. Constitution were targeted and denied tax-exempt status, will those of us who dare to believe in the U.S. Constitution be denied the healthcare we need to save our lives?
A close friend headed a large Tea Party group in Florida. Every single board member was audited and intimidated by the IRS. Do you doubt that this same IRS (or whatever thug-like bureaucracy they put in charge of approving medical care) might make it difficult or impossible for these same Tea Party board members to get permission for necessary medical care?
Soon after asking President Barack Obama a couple of tough questions, a television anchorman in St. Louis was audited by the IRS. Will any member of the media who criticizes the President (or, even worse, any government agency) have a hard time getting approval for medical care?
Another friend, a successful hedge fund CEO, attended a Mitt Romney fundraiser. Within 60 days, almost everyone who wrote a check to Romney’s campaign was targeted for painful audits by the IRS. Will large GOP donors be denied medical treatment by these same corrupt government bureaucrats? Will Wall Street CEOs be denied medical care for the sin of “being rich” in Obama’s America?
Will the Obama crime family deny medical care to anyone who criticizes the President in the media? I’ve been doing it nonstop for four years; and, as a result, I faced a massive IRS attack. I was profiled, targeted and marked for financial destruction. In the future, with the IRS or an IRS-like bureaucracy in charge of Obamacare, will I be put on the Obama enemies list and denied lifesaving medical care?
Or will they instead try to extort critics of Obama? We already know the IRS offered to make the pain go away to pro-life groups if they’d agree to stop protesting in front of Planned Parenthood clinics. Will the IRS say to someone like me: “We know you need that cancer treatment, Wayne. We’re willing to approve it right away, but only if you agree to no longer appear on FOX News.”
After what I’ve gone through, let me assure you that the threat and intimidation are serious enough to make even someone as patriotic and committed to freedom as I think twice. I can stand the heat. But am I really willing to put the lives of my wife and children at risk?
Are you aware the IRS shared confidential tax information of conservative organizations with their liberal opposition? It now appears they shared Romney’s confidential tax information with Obama’s Presidential campaign co-chairman. With the IRS in charge of Obamacare, will the confidential medical records of GOP candidates now be shared with their Democratic opponents?
Am I suggesting the IRS and other executive branch Obamacare bureaucracies are capable of murder? No, of course not. They’ll just play politics with your medical care, the same way they used the power of the IRS to bleed the finances of Obama’s critics.
- Slow pay your bills.
- Repeatedly lose your medical requests or bills.
- Deny permission just long enough that you’ll be denied your chance to live.
- Compound your illness by adding frustration and stress, thereby cutting years off your life.
- Approve only 50 percent of your bills for cancer treatment, while paying 100 percent for Obama donors.
Or maybe they’ll just extort Obama’s enemies by offering to pay for the medical care you need, as long as you never appear again on FOX News or conservative talk radio.
You know, little stuff like that.
The liberal media laughed when conservatives warned about “death panels” manned by government bureaucrats deciding whether you get the treatment you need to live or die. They accused us of paranoia and conspiracy theories. Well, who’s laughing now? We were right.
Then, there’s the Associated Press scandal. It’s clear the media better stay in line. Write a story that Obama doesn’t appreciate, and you’ll soon find your medical care denied or delayed by the Obama crime family, too.
Forget death panels. Now we must fear targeted death panels.
I’m Wayne Allyn Root for PersonalLiberty.com. See you next week. Same time, same place. Keep fighting, keep defending the American dream, stay committed, stay relentless and may God bless America.
