Sarah Palin’s brother, Chuck Heath Jr., posted this note on Facebook on January 11:

Coincidence? You decide.

My father, who worked multiple jobs and faithfully and honestly paid his taxes for fifty years, had never heard a word from the IRS. In 2008, his daughter was tapped to run for vice president of the United States. Since that time, he has been, in his words “horribly harassed” six times by the agency. They’ve tried to dig up something on him but he’s always operated above board.

Government and politics are ugly. Kudos to the few that are trying to clean it up.

To date, Heath’s comments have not generated any mainstream media attention at all. The same media that generated story after story from the now discredited claim by waitress Dayna Morales, which was also posted on Facebook, that a family mistreated her because she is gay, are completely ignoring Heath’s claim that the father of a former Republican vice presidential nominee is being harassed by the federal government because of the family’s politics. The same media that can’t get enough of stories about “scandal-plagued” Chris Christie, are ignoring this.

"What kind of a culture are we building in our most powerful and feared agency?"

It was built a long time ago. The nature of the beast does not make it a comfortable environment for persons of honesty & integrity.

When you give bonuses based on how much you can wring out of your subjects, you don't find decent people making long careers out of it, or rising through the ranks. That means that the other kind, do.


This scandal is not about the corruption of a bunch of good people by a ruthless and corrupt administration (though they are that!).

Because of the very nature of our income tax system, this has always been a sword of Damocles hanging over the head of Lady Liberty.

Obama just cut the thread.


No free people should tolerate an income tax, no matter how it's structured.

Well, it's good to know that Holder's DOJ has already said of the IRS "phony scandal" that "investigators didn’t find the kind of political bias or 'enemy hunting' that would amount to a violation of criminal law."

So I'm sure it's just an unfortunate coincidence that Palin's father has been "carefully selected." It can't possibly be because of political bias or anything, because that would be criminal, and the administration is certainly not guilty of that!

palin's father is a very honest man. if he says he's being harassed - he's being harassed. the irs is evil. they come in with half a dozen black suvs, light's blazing, all jump out as if they are drug-busting cops, and then trash things and try to scare people as if they enjoy it. watch them do it on you tube. they're evil incarnate.

I don't doubt it for a second but where's the meat. I'd like to carry the fight against this kind of fascism but I need more specifics including some public comments and what kind of harrassment is involved.

I see nothing but all must go, muslins, Mexicans, anybody else not legal.. Look at the Mexicans, but the Muslins will be a lot more evil. They come into the country every day, they are in the Government working and not legal. We have a problem they are buying land in this country and no one but Islam can inter, 100 of Acers, so what do you think about that...

Look at this,,, by Pamela Geller 9 Jan 2014 post a comment
Since I wrote my book Stop the Islamization of America and established the Stop Islamization of America initiative of my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), we have seen increasing accommodation and submission to Islam in the United States. This past year was a particularly good year for Islamic supremacists, who are working furiously in this country to impose Sharia (Islamic law) -- and in particular, the blasphemy laws under the Sharia. I have contacted her for permission to reprint her articles. People we are in deep trouble they are for one reason take what we have. They have started making trouble here already. Check out England, Belgaum, Germany, Swaziland killing people already. All must go,,, there is no Muslim that will be good for us, they can lie, kill us deceive us and they do that. They say oh we don't do that,,, Waite till the s hits they will fight us kill us, read the holy book, as Obama called it. People I was told to stop, look, and listen. 1969 draftee V/N,, Korean DMZ combat solider. We will,, and must,, kill them to survive what I mean it will be kill or be killed, this will happen soon. The government as we know, will not help but will get in the way. All must be eradicated from the country,,, no other way...

Unless the law has been changed it used to state that after three consecutive audits where no money was owed to the IRS there could not be a fourth audit. I experienced this myself and they backed off when I confronted them with this law. Obviously this was a politically motivated effort and should be investigated but by whom? DOJ? FBI? All are arms of the Obama political machine and cannot be trusted by any American.
