The stench gets stinkier and the corruption gets deeper:

Several Soros-funded groups including the Campaign Legal Center, Democracy 21, the Center for Public Integrity, Mother Jones and Alternet have worked to pressure the IRS to target conservative nonprofit groups. The subsequent IRS investigation flagged more than 100 tea party-related applications for higher scrutiny, including applications that included the words “Tea Party” and “patriot.”

The IRS scandal can be traced back to a series of letters that the liberal groups Campaign Legal Center (CLC) and Democracy 21 sent to the IRS back in 2010 and 2011. Both groups were funded by George’s Soros’s Open Society Foundations. The CLC received $677,000 and Democracy 21 got $365,000 from the Soros-backed foundation, according to the Foundation’s 990 tax forms.

That’s from Mike Ciandella at CNS News, but we also have a little something from the Wall Street Journal:

To monitor compliance with these [new ObamaCare tax] rules, the IRS and HHS are now building the largest personal information database the government has ever attempted. Known as the Federal Data Services Hub, the project is taking the IRS’s own records (for income and employment status) and centralizing them with information from Social Security (identity), Homeland Security (citizenship), Justice (criminal history), HHS (enrollment in entitlement programs and certain medical claims data) and state governments (residency).

The data hub will be used as the verification system for ObamaCare’s complex subsidy formula. All insurers, self-insured businesses and government health programs must submit reports to the IRS about the individuals they cover, which the IRS will cross-check against tax returns.

But don’t worry. Tyranny isn’t “lurking just around the corner.”

We now have graphic evidence of a conspiring cabal of globaliists who have made the subjugation of America their primary goal, and Mr. Soros has always been a key figure the last few decades. For those of us who read, think and observe to a minimal degree, the evidence was already there, but the revelations of the last few days render the left's epithet of "conspiracy nut" completely groundless. The left were the ones wearing tin foil hats, ready to bow down to their statist high priests, who don't just want to heavily tax and profit (these people already have TONS of money), but intend to rule and dominate citizens in any state which they can control.

Oh, be sure to add the Dept. Of Education to this list. They will be collecting all data about public and private school students via the Common Core aligned data base.

Also, I have noticed trouble with some websites not opening or partially opening, along with slowly opening since this all started to break. Others I've talked with have had same problem. I don't know much about computer tech, but I wonder if alot of bandwith is being used for some major scrubbing. Probably nothing.
